When rioting, looting, and arson erupted, and attacks on police began, the liberal leadership of America's cities and states sat morally and politically paralyzed. Liberals may equate the term "law and order" with racism, but without law and order, there is no justice and no peace. On the fifth night of rioting, looting and arson [...]

If Donald Trump wins the 2020 election, borders will be tightened. The U.S. withdrawal from the Mideast will continue. U.S. manufacturing will begin to be repatriated. Transnational institutions will be downgraded, ignored and superseded. The watchword will be what it has lately been: "America First." After the Great Pandemic has passed and we emerge from [...]

Will this pandemic prove the decisive factor in America's retreat from global hegemony?

For each American lost to the pandemic, 1,000 Americans have lost their jobs because of conscious and deliberate decisions of the president and 50 governors. Some 60,000 citizens, [...]
