Game on: Bolton Vows to ‘Squeeze’ Iran ‘Until the Pips Squeak’

The U.S. will  “squeeze” Iran “until the pips squeak” through the tough new round of trade sanctions now in force, National Security Advisor John Bolton promised Tuesday. President Donald Trump has slowly ratcheted up pressure on Tehran by dropping a host of favourable trade deals authorised by Barack Obama, withdrawing from an international agreement aimed at ending its nuclear program and re-introducing unilateral U.S. sanctions. At the same time Iran has sought to evade the sanctions, principally in alliance with the European Union, much to the disgust of the Trump administration.…

Virgil: France’s Macron Attacks America’s Trump, and Americans Help Pay For It

Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, is playing host to world leaders—and attacking one of them. Guess who? As The Washington Post reported on Sunday, “In the shadow of a grand war memorial here, French President Emmanuel Macron marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by delivering a forceful rebuke against rising nationalism, calling it a ‘betrayal of patriotism’ and warning against ‘old demons coming back to wreak chaos and death.’” For much of Sunday, that article was the “Most Read” story on the Post’s website—of course it…

Pinkerton: Learning the Right Lesson of World War I on Its 100th Anniversary

Today is not only Veterans Day, it is also the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, when the armistice went into effect exactly a century ago, on November 11, 1918. After more than four years of bloody fighting, the Great War was finally over. The standard view of World War I is that it is a testament to the futility of war. Yet maybe the better way to think of the war, which lasted from 1914 to 1918—including American participation in 1917-1918—is that if war comes, it’s better to…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with their Chinese counterparts Friday at the State Department, with both sides expressing hopes for a cooperative relationship, but also airing significant differences. In many ways, it embodied the Trump administration’s new maxim with China: Competition does not mean hostility. In a nearly 40 minute press conference after a meeting that ran a bit longer than expected, both sides discussed where they saw areas of agreement and disagreement. While there were some notes of harmony, there was a lot more…

Tucker Carlson Antifa Riot Hints Cuba’s Campaign to Export Mob Attacks Is Succeeding

The mob attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home this week by radical Marxists – leaving his home with a broken door and vandalized with leftist slogans – has triggered widespread shock on the part of most decent Americans. For those aware of the way “Antifa” elements operate internationally, however, the incident was nothing new. Pro-democracy and right-leaning political activists, journalists, and artists 90 miles from our shores, fighting for their rights in communist Cuba, have faced similar mob attacks on their homes for years. Unlike the Carlson incident,…

White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro Takes China, Wall Street Globalists to Task

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro took Wall Street globalists and China to task on Friday, blasting them for trying to work against President Trump’s efforts to end unfair Chinese trade practices for the good of the American worker. “President Trump has done an incredible job on trade.
