Trump Faces Big Questions As He Prepares To Meet Prime Minister Netanyahu

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 12:50:15 EST

With Prime Minister Netanyahu arriving in Washington this week to meet with President Trump and the press full of headlines about turmoil at the National Security Council, the president faces some big decisions. Among them:Stick with Flynn? General Michael Flynn, the president's national security adviser, is under attack. During the presidential campaign, Mr. Trump showed the ability quickly and unsentimentally to replace staffers, like Corey Lewandowski and Paul Manafort, who turned into...



UN Erupts in an Uproar After Trump Vetoes High Post For Ex-Premier of 'Palestine'

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 14:45:19 EST

UNITED NATIONS A new administration in disarray botches one of its first big moves, gets overruled, and then cries foul. Sounds familiar? Welcome to the United Nations under Secretary General Antonio Guterres.On Thursday, Mr. Guterres nominated a former Palestinian Authority prime minister, Salam Fayyad, to be the United Nations' envoy in Libya. He asked for Security Council approval. On Friday, America's new permanent representative at the UN, Ambassador Nikki Haley, unceremoniously declined...



Supreme Court of Britain Insists That Brexit Vote Goes Through Parliament

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 19:37:24 EST

Americans tired of presidential end runs around Congress will sympathize with the Supreme Court ruling out of London that Her Majesty's Government cannot act alone but must pass legislation in Parliament before triggering Brexit negotiations to leave the European Union.Following this summer's referendum vote, Prime Minister May promised to initiate Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and begin procedural talks for EU withdrawal. Opponents challenged the government before the High Court in early...



May Takes a Step Forward To British Independence With an Eye Out for Trump

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 12:36:16 EST

Prime Minister May's Lancaster House speech outlining the British government's Brexit agenda takes an impressive step forward in Britain's withdrawal from the European Union and keeps a weather eye out for the man who is about to become President Trump. Brexit was "a vote to restore . . . our parliamentary democracy, national self-determination, and to become even more global and internationalist in action and in spirit."The Prime Minister opened with an apologia, setting out the reasons for...



Last Leftists of Watergate Make One Last Effort To Tag Nixon for Vietnam

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 11:39:01 EST

Like Japanese veterans of World War II stumbling, emaciated, out of the jungles of Guam and the Philippines many years after the end of the war, near-terminal victims of Watergate fever still wander dazedly into the press with some new angle on the moldering, feculent myth that something useful was actually achieved in the bloodless assassination of Richard Nixon in the Watergate inanity.Nixon salvaged the Vietnam War the Democrats had pushed their own leader, Lyndon Johnson, into; the...



Kerry Leaves Public Life The Way He Came In Turning Against an Ally

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 03:05:40 EST

It looks like Secretary of State Kerry is determined to go out the way he came in wrapping himself in the flag while betraying the causes of both America and its allies. He came in by doing that to Vietnam and is going out by turning on Israel.Mr. Kerry's tirade against Jewish settlements in liberated Judea and Samaria was breathtaking in its mendacity. Before a captive audience at the State Department, the lame-duck diplomat went on for more than an hour, blaming President Obama's failures...



How Jews Gained Okay For 'Close Settlement'Of Judea and Samaria

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 16:21:30 EST

President Obama's passive aggression toward Israel has been evident ever since his Cairo speech five months after his accession to the presidency. After affirming "unbreakable" bonds between America and Israel, he segued to Palestinians. They "endure the daily humiliations . . . that come with occupation" an "intolerable situation." America, he pledged, "will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinians aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own." Then he departed to...



Israel-America Treaty Beckons as a Strategy Against a Hostile U.N.

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 08:01:26 EST

One of the paradoxes of Zionism is that a movement for Jewish national self-determination has found itself so often at the mercy of gentiles. Precedent for this goes all the way back at least to Cyrus the Great, the Persian king who 2,600 years ago allowed the Jews to return to the promised land and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.In modern times, Lord Balfour, the British foreign secretary, issued the landmark declaration on November 2, 1917: "His Majesty's Government view with favor the...



Call It the Dugri Doctrine: Plain Talk From Trump Startles the Middle East

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 07:30:06 EST

Roughly translated, "dugri" means "straightforwardness." Antonym: diplomatic ambiguity. The Turkic word, pronounced DOOH-gree, entered the Hebrew language and became a staple of Israeli discourse. President-elect Trump's approach to diplomacy appears to appreciate dugri.And, hey, an American non-ambiguous dugri may just be what Middle East diplomacy now requires. Take the nomination of David Friedman, Mr. Trump's long time confidante, bankruptcy lawyer and friend, to be America's next envoy in...



Canada's Brian Mulroney Is Urged To 'Rein in' President-Elect Trump

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 13:31:26 EST

A pandemic of denial over the incoming president of the United States grips his Democratic opponents, and, like most American fads and traits, is as strong in Canada as anywhere. It is now five weeks since the election, and we have watched an unprecedentedly asinine sequence of delusional activities to cushion the conventional wisdom from the impact of the result.There was the recount, where the Green candidate, who garnered one per cent of the vote in the presidential election, rounded up over...



Bitterness of Liberals Begets a Campaign To Foil Trump Voters

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 22:36:19 EST

The Electoral College is due to meet Monday, when the electors chosen on November 8 will establish Donald Trump as the winner. Then Democrats' efforts to steal the election will finally come to an end right?Don't bet on it. So bitter are American liberals that they may go down as the sorest losers since the invention of democracy. They're apt to try anything to overturn voters' decision.Certainly Election Day didn't stop them, even though the Electoral College outcome was unambiguous, a...



How Trump Could Make Quick Move to Jerusalem For U.S. Israel Embassy

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 13:59:24 EST

Could President-elect Trump be the leader who finally moves the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem? He promised during his campaign to implement the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which calls for Jerusalem to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel and for the Embassy to be established in that city.



Welcome to the Fight: Niall Ferguson Reverses His Course on Brexit

Fri, 9 Dec 2016 17:46:45 EST

In a season when some of our greatest intellectuals are trying to figure out how to make their peace with Donald Trump, let us take a big-hearted view of the mea culpa, mea maxima culpa just issued by historian Niall Ferguson in respect of Brexit. Speaking at a forum of the Milkin Institute in London, Professor Ferguson on Tuesday gave his reasons for speaking out against an independent Britain and backing instead remaining in the European Union."It is one of the few times in my life that I've...



Vigilant American Military Is Best Way To Redeem Day of Infamy at Pearl

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 19:28:57 EST

A GI pal of mine in Vietnam went on R&R to Tokyo, where he picked up a girl in a bar and took her to the blockbuster movie about Pearl Harbor, "Tora! Tora! Tora!" When the Zeroes came roaring across the screen, my friend's date leaned her head on his shoulder."Sorry, sorry, sorry," she whispered.Prime Minister Shinzo Abe insists he's not going to do that to President Obama when, late this month, he becomes the first Japanese premier to visit Pearl Harbor. Instead, an aide says, Mr. Abe's aim...



Europe's Center-Right Poised To Claim Power In the Era of Trump

Tue, 6 Dec 2016 11:42:06 EST

As Donald Trump steadily gains in public approval by his intelligent appointments of well-qualified women and non-Caucasian people to key positions and debunks the entire Clinton-Obama campaign against him of "racist" and "sexist" defamation, recollection of that spurious campaign evaporates. His retrieval of a thousand Carrier jobs for Indiana left his opponents silent, except for the instantly camp figure of the old socialist kibbutznik Bernie Sanders, blubbering about betrayal of...



The Two-Americas Gambit Might Help Donald Trump Deal With the One China

Sun, 4 Dec 2016 18:42:18 EST

Far be it from me to suggest how President-elect Trump should handle the uproar over his taking a phone call from the president of Free China. But here's what happened when, in the early 1980s, a crisis erupted between two rising powers Communist China and the Wall Street Journal.It occurred at the start of the Reagan administration, and, as journalistic flaps go, it was a doozy.It was precipitated by a friendly message from Taiwan to Reagan, who had campaigned on, among other things, the...



More Truths Await Telling Of Castro's Crimes Ere Cuba Is Finally Free

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 18:21:11 EST

Finally, Fidel Castro has died. I had been waiting for this moment since I was a small child, for as long as I've had awareness to sense the pain and horror he represented for those around me. It would be, I always knew, one of the memorable moments of my life.Amid the whirlwind of calls, press requests, booking a flight to Miami, and packing, my daughter called and asked if I was happy. I had been letting personal calls go to voice mail, so she caught me off guard. I had to admit I was not...



Britain Itches for Freedom And a Trade Accord With Trump's America

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 08:47:04 EST

President-elect Trump is in like Flynn with America's most enduring "special relationship." For though his electoral victory is the cause of protests at home and unease at European capitals, "Mr. Brexit" basks in favorable reviews from the British government. Small wonder. Both nascent administrations swept to office on a wave of anti-establishment populism.Leading the welcoming party are Brexiteers who spearheaded efforts to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union and regain the...



As U.S., Russia Wrestle Over U.N.'s Next Leader One Option Is To Keep Ban

Mon, 3 Oct 2016 17:59:47 EST

As the race for secretary general of the United Nations heats up, here's one option that as yet is only whispered in the halls: Punt.America and Russia, the top players that will decide the race among the ten remaining declared candidates in the race to replace the current Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon of South Korea, are so divided over so many issues -- from Syria to Ukraine -- that they may well fail to agree on a candidate before December 31, when a new UN chief is supposed to take his...



British Tribune of TradeCould Steal the March On Trump's Protectionism

Sun, 2 Oct 2016 19:51:19 EST

Britain after Brexit is wasting no time announcing to the trading world it is open for business. Minister of International Trade Liam Fox speaks of free trade with an optimism that must inspire envy in America's market conservatives. Who can imagine government praising the virtues of free trade?Economic growth, Mr. Fox asserts, is supported by three pillars of market freedom. One is liberty of trade, unshackled from state interference, since "the idea that governments should restrict the right...
