The Russians were coming, came and left. Afterwards the American military gave it a long costly attempt, and now reportedly, China?

Nearly 20 years later and a countless loss of life with an alarming cost of trillions since US troops invaded Afghanistan to oust the Taliban and attack al-Qaida, Americans are advancing a final withdrawal.

POTUS has referred to Putin as an “autocrat,” a “dictator” and a “killer”, with relations between the countries at an all-time low.

POTUS is reportedly pressing Putin over alleged hacking, human rights abuses and other irritants. Putin may be cruising for a bruising as Russian ships carry out the largest military exercises since the Cold War off the coast of Hawaii, sending the US Air Force scrambling as President Biden meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The White House is now pointing fingers at the King of Saudi Arabia, and Prince Mohammed bin Salman for killing Jamal Khashoggi.

Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi was a Saudi Arabian dissident, author, columnist for The Washington Post, and a general manager and editor-in-chief of Al-Arab News Channel. He was assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 by agents of the Saudi government, according to reports.

Please, allow me to tell you a real story I personally lived through. Once upon a time, there were two republics. Both had constitutions, laws, civil rights, a government, a congress, and a court system of law. The people could assemble, associate, speak, and write with freedom.

But as the people became unsatisfied with their governments, they chose to support new officials and were fooled by fake images of religion and a better life before reality began to set in.

The Kamikaze President?

Is Donald Trump beginning an angry month with a crazy news conference and his tweet storm which reached another low with increased attacks on the press?

POTUS mental fitness becomes a conversation for conservatives, as an impeachment inquiry from liberal Democrats and challenges from political combatants are getting through to millions of swing voters who are sick and tired of Trump.
The crazier he gets, the more the pressure will rise on US Congress and the American public to do something serious about it.

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." Declaration of Independence

The Mourning After

Welcome to the mourning after. Do you smell the Covfefe brewing on Capitol Hill? The US Department of Justice offers no timetable on the release of the Mueller report to Congress.

Can you imagine if the Starr Report had been provided only to President Bill Clinton's Attorney General, Janet Reno, who claimed she read it read it in two days and published a 4-page cliff notes concluding that President Clinton committed no crimes?

Real Truth Caravan

POTUS War on Latinos and a Caravan is NOT the most pressing issue in this election. The Democrats do not support open borders and the reason why ICE gets a bad rap is about those kids who have still been detained hundreds of days after the court ordered them released. This is also a war on many woman and children.

On this 20th anniversary of the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act expanding US foreign policy capabilities promoting and defending religious freedoms at home and all over the world, lets put our money. Where our mouths are.

IRFA builds on our founding fathers’ firm conviction that the freedom of individuals to believe as they see fit is a God-given right that is central to the success of a nation.

US Against The World

Submitted by ub on Fri, 10/05/2018 - 11:40

Nearly 200 years ago, in 1823, President James Monroe's doctrine prevented imperial powers foreign to our Western Hemisphere from acquiring territories anywhere in The Americas or seeking undue influence. This was the cornerstone of #USA grand strategy.

American foreign influence once referred to how we behaved towards other nations. Now we're told there are countries turning the tables on us and global leaders like Russia and now China dares interfere in our internal affairs.
