After president Trump delivered a truly repulsive speech to the United Nations that was designed solely to appeal to white nationalists at home, Gingrich declared Trump had given "intellectual clarity" on his political philosophy.
"I want to thank him for cutting our payroll" said the president in response to a question about Vladimir Putin expelling US diplomats from Russia.
Trump threatened nuclear war on North Korea, then the US government stepped in and told the public not to listen to their president.
Anyone who believes otherwise is subscribing to the same conspiracy theories that helped get Donald Trump elected in the first place.
Donald Trump, who last year accused Saudi Arabia of funding and arming terrorist groups, flew there as president, bowed to their leaders, unloaded tons of high-powered weapons and somehow encouraged Toby Keith to not merely join him there but perform for a 100% male audience in the very last country in the world that doesn’t allow its women to drive.
It turns out Trump’s first disastrous raid in Yemen — an exercise in boosting his strongman image by greenlighting a raid that Obama wasn’t “kickass” enough to authorize for reasons that are now deadly apparent — was only the start of a bloody campaign that looks a hell of a like the start of war with Iran.
Trump's America and Putin's Russia Are Making The World a Far, Far More Dangerous Place
John McCain's phone call to the Australian ambassador is about to become the routine -- Republicans repairing relations with allies after their leaders talk to Trump.
The retired general testified in front of a House committee, where he indirectly attacked Trump's foreign policy plans.
But he's still too f*cking lazy to read the intelligence reports.
While well within mainstream ideology, Clinton's foreign policy positions are actually quite extreme from an internationalist perspective. She is a hawkish Democrat with strong ties to Israel and a steadfast belief in using America's military prowess to further the country's interests abroad. While these are issues most Americans don't have much of a problem with, the rest of the world does.
Hillary Clinton's foreign policy positions are not ideal and it would be preferable to elect someone who, for example, saw the stupidity of the Iraq war before it happened. But just think of the alternative -- a fascist bully who openly advocates war crimes and thinks putting America first means degrading and insulting everyone else.
On Monday, Hillary Clinton spoke to the prominent pro Israel lobby AIPAC, outlining her unyielding support for the country. While the speech was partly a declaration of war against Donald Trump (no doubt a good thing), there is cause for great concern over her emerging foreign policy stance.
Ben Carson's foreign policy plan is a stupid as his economic plan. It doesn't bear any relation to reality, and Carson is promoting it knowing full well his audience doesn't have the intellectual ability to see how utterly ridiculous it is.
In another gnawingly irritating screed against Obama for his fictional transgressions against 'real Americans' (white people), Palin has outdone herself with a wonderful mixture of sexual innuendo, racism and violent rage.
When the presidential cat's away, the mice will play, but the official Iran Nuclear Deal Twitter account's monumental fail shouldn't affect anyone's support (or lack thereof) for the pact.
Makes total sense.
How Nigeria works. Or, how it doesn't.
In 1996, President Clinton met a newly-elected Benjamin Netanyahu for the first time and came away from the meeting cursing at his gall, “Who’s the fucking superpower here?” The answer, then as now, is the United States
Less than 15 percent of our oil comes from the Middle East. However, we have serious investments in the Middle Eastern oil industry that pay out in dollars and influence. When Iraq is unstable, the U.S. economy and our influence over Middle Eastern power is unstable.
"Well, Ed, I doubt that I’m going to have time to lay out my entire foreign policy doctrine," the President responded, adding "And there are actually some complimentary pieces as well about my foreign policy, but I’m not sure you ran them."
There's an argument to be made that American intervention can sometimes be useful, but the historical record in recent years shows otherwise. From Vietnam to Iraq, it has been one spectacular disaster after the other, and everyone, including America, could probably do with a break from it.
Regardless of whether you think the US should use drones in warfare, the testimony of an innocent family whose lives were ruined by a botched attack is hard to stomach. 13 year old Zubair Rehman's testimony is chilling, and a terrifying insight into what life is like for those affected by US attacks in Pakistan.
Azerbaijan's democracy was in full swing yesterday as President Ilham Aliyev released vote results from the national election, an entire day full before voting had even started.
There was a point in time when McCain was a fairly interesting politician. He was unpredictable, often in good ways, and seemingly pretty straight. Now, he's a national joke living out the last days of his political relevancy by causing as much damage to his country as humanly is possible.
CNN obtained the 13 different videos seen by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee depicting aftermath of an chemical weapons attack in Syria on August 21. The Obama administration claimed that the intelligence community verified the authenticity of the videos that show "Men sprawled on a tile floor, shirtless and convulsing."
When 'winning' a war means dropping $2 trillion, elevating Iran's prestige in the region, increasing the threat of terrorism worldwide sevenfold, and seeing most of the newly found access to oil benefits go to China, what exactly does losing look like?
Uruguay passed an unprecedented bill that legalizes and regulates the production, distribution, and sale of marijuana for adult consumers. While other countries have claimed they want to end pointless 'War on Drugs' policies, thus far only Uruguay has taken the lead. Who's next?
What Manning did was totally and utterly illegal under the law of the land, and he will be punished accordingly. It is clear that Manning will spend many years in jail for his crimes against the state, a fate he was well aware of when he chose to leak secret military documents. But that does not mean that what Manning did was wrong.
Much of the left are increasingly happy to publicly savage Barack Obama and his administration, creating a division between themselves and those on the left who still have faith in the President. The topic that seems to marks the demarcation line between these two groups the most is Obama's use for unmanned predator drones. For some, it is a necessary evil that the President must use to face off the persistent threat of terrorism; for others it is a a fundamental betrayal of Obama's hope and change promise.
