Trump and Africa
Trump and Africa

Indulging in this thought experiment has led me to conclusions that surprise me: Africa might suffer less from a Trump presidency than America would.

U.S. Bases in Europe Trump
Trump’s Misanalysis of U.S. Bases in Europe

Many have rightly said Europe should have a more effective military force. However, Trump wrongly implies that bases in Germany do not serve any national interests, and he may even be wrong to imply that America has troops in Germany primarily to defend Europe.

Nidal Hasan
How to Respond to Brussels? Hang Nidal Hasan

Convicted mass murderer Nidal Hasan sits in a federal military prison. It is nearly three years since a court martial sentenced him to death. That stark fact advertises the utter lack of seriousness of this administration about the war on terrorists. And it illustrates the moral confusion of the Left in Europe—and here.

Donald Trump Pig Blood
Pig Blood and Glowing Sand

More than a third of self-identified evangelicals support Donald Trump, who touts a false story about an American general executing Muslim terrorists with bullets dipped in pig blood.
