America: A Prisoner of Our ‘Allies’

All the Very Serious People are tweeting and retweeting this “iconic” photo of Trump surrounded by the Euro-weenies, with Angela Merkel seeming to lecture the President while the rest of our faithless “allies” look on.

Populism and the End of the European Union

The newly-installed US ambassador to Germany, Richard (Ric) Grenell, is at the center of a Trumped-up “controversy,” after having given an interview to Breitbart saying that he’s looking forward to encouraging beleaguered European conservatives.

Dear friend of Antiwar.com, I’m told by my Antiwar.com colleagues that they’ve received many inquiries about my health status since my cancer diagnosis, and they’re urging me to write an update.

The Babchenko Deception: Kiev’s Masters of Deceit

President Trump’s sudden cancellation of the Singapore Summit had his enemies, left and right, ecstatically tweeting "I told you so!" In all the domains of Hate-on-Trump-landia, from the neoconservative netherworld of the Weekly Standard to the highfalutin liberal highlands of The New Yorker, the gloating rose up into the stratosphere like a mushroom cloud, blotting … Continue reading “The Korea Summit: Skeptics Gloated Too Soon”

A Spy in the House of Trump

The identification of a spy implanted in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign by a murky cabal of spooks, both foreign and domestic, has given us a whole new perspective on the Russia-gate hoax.

The Korea Story: Why Is the Media Getting It So Wrong?

Kim Jong-un: The Commie Who Came in From the Cold

Why has North Korea suddenly decided to negotiate with Seoul and Washington, and quite possibly give up its nuclear weapons? This question has commentators in the West stumped, and so they fall back on the usual self-serving narcissistic America-centric nonsense: Kim Jong-un was so intimidated by President Trump’s outlandish threats that he decided to be … Continue reading “Kim Jong-un: The Commie Who Came in From the Cold”

Iran Deal Exit: America First, or Israel First?

As the US walks away from the Iran deal is Washington headed down the road to war? That’s the assumption of the deal’s supporters, the main talking point – but is it necessarily true?
