*Image depicts the aftermath of the 1999 bombing of an apartment block on the Kashirskoye Highway in Moscow. This was the deadliest of the four 1999 Russian Apartment Bombings. When civilians found an exploded fifth bomb in Ryazan, the government’s narrative about a “Chechen trail” began to unravel. In his pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump re-affirmed his affection for Vladimir Putin with a truly bizarre and despicable take on Putin and the United States. O’Reilly: Do you respect Putin? Trump: I do respect him but — O’Reilly: Do you? Why? Trump: Well, I respect a...Read More

There are plenty of valid reasons to have reservations about President Trump’s executive order on halting immigration from seven countries known to be hot spots for terrorism. The incompetency, the banning of green card holders (which has been since reversed), Steve Bannon outranking DHS legal opinions, and the lack of a provision that allowed allies, such as Iraqi interpreters, to enter are all valid criticisms.

Not since the days of General John “Black Jack” Pershing and Pancho Villa has the United States’ relationship with Mexico been such a topic of conversation. The President-elect has made his feelings about our neighbor to the south clear. From immigration to trade, Trump has promised and threatened to alter the way in which Washington deals with Mexico City. Last week Trump finally admitted what anybody who is not a member of the Trump cult already knew. Trump acknowledged that Mexico will not, in fact pay for a wall along the border. He did insist that Mexico will eventually pay the...Read More
