Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Socialist Republican?

Our new "I'll take your money honey" in Congress is Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who famously wants to give everything away to everyone, and destroy the republic of the United States of America as we know it. She apparently fancies herself to Lincoln (the Republican) and FDR (the Socialist). The dichotomy of that comparison on its face shows idiocy.

U.S. economic resilience spells Chinese model's doom

There is a historical truth about the American economy -- it is deep, wide, and resilient. Managed economies, or communism, by contrast, may work for a period of time, due to favorable economic winds. But eventually you have to pay the piper. It's a lesson that China is about to learn the hard way.

China plans to take over the world

China is stealing our technology, manipulating its currency, taking advantage of our lenient immigration policies, and practicing unfair trade in order to soon become the largest economy in the world, and the nation in control of the world's resources.

Albania strikes blow against Iran's campaign of terror

- The Washington Times

It may not have been big news in the West, but it's worth noting and praising Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama's recent decision to expel two Iranian diplomats, including the ambassador, from this tiny Balkan country. The stated reason was for activity "damaging to [Albania's] national security."

Kyrgyzstan latest target for misguided leftist misrule

Mr. Soros and his acolytes have also long been active in the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan. The recent confirmation of Mr. Lu as U.S. ambassador to Bishkek, fresh from his tour in Tirana, raises fears that yet another country struggling to recover from the hangover of Soviet misrule is about to be prescribed precisely the wrong policy medicine.

Trump is right about climate change, China and the Democrats

After just finishing the revealing book by Michael Pillsbury, "The Hundred Year Marathon," which outlines in frightening detail the slow but deadly quest of China to dominate the United States, and their deceit and subterfuge to achieve that goal, I am more convinced than ever that the climate change scam is funded and enabled by the Chinese state, and yes, as a weapon to destroy the West.

Ukraine's Poroshenko wants to stay in power

There are many facets to the Russo-Ukrainian conflict - the obvious and the more opaque. The obvious is that Russia has aggressively used its power over the Kerch Strait to harass Ukrainian shipping and block Ukrainian ports such as Mariupol.

Trump is confronting China

There are some truths that I strive to preach, for lack of a better word, in today's information-culture wars propagated in our corrupt mainstream media. Here are a few: Nationalism is not racism, adherence to principles is not hate, masculinity is not toxic and there are only two sexes.

The menace of Macron's misguided European army idea

My first reaction when French President Emmanuel Macron said this week that the European Union needed its own army to defend against potential adversaries — including the United States — was to suggest he go to Normandy and ask the 9,000 dead Americans there who saved France, for the second time, what they thought about the idea. But, I'm sure he won't do that.
