The United States of Obama increasingly rejects freedom, domestically and internationally

The mess du jour is in the Ukraine; do messes closer to home matter?


North Korea has nukes and Iran either has them or is working diligently to get them. That’s easier now that sanctions have been diminished and Iran is “open for business.” China is becoming more aggressive and so is Russia. Yet … Continue reading
