Presidential Debate Commission Ditches Foreign Policy Focus Following Hunter Biden Laptop Leaks

The third presidential debate – set to take place on Thursday – was originally supposed to center on foreign policy. But following the release of the Hunter Biden e-mails/laptop details in the New York Post, the wildly partisan Presidential Debates Commission announced that would no longer be the case, the effect being the protection of Joe and Hunter Biden. On Friday the Debate Commission announced their topics for Friday, which are bizarrely similar to the first debate topics. The second debate will feature: Fighting COVID-19; American Families; Race in America; Climate Change; National Security; and Leadership. The first debate topics

Australian Law Profs Nominate Trump For Third Nobel Prize For ‘Trump Doctrine’

Four eminent law professors from Australia are nominating President Donald Trump for his third Nobel Peace Prize, citing his resolve to put an end to foreign wars, inking the Abraham Accords, and fighting for energy independence as their rationale. On Sky News Australia, Professor David Flint explained the Nobel Prize-deserving “Trump Doctrine,” insisting President Trump is “only guided by a national interest.” This is the third nomination he has received in the month of September.

WATCH: Biden Lauds Soros’s Pro-Iran Efforts at Event Hosted by ‘Death to America’-Linked Group

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised far-left financier George Soros’s Open Society Institute during a speech at the American-Iranian Council which aided President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the National Pulse can reveal. The unearthed comments come from a 2002 speech at the American-Iranian Council, a group which has worked closely with the Iranian regime after being founded by a pro-Iran activist in 1997. The organization has been fiercely in favor of Obama and Biden’s failed Iran nuclear deal. American-Iranian Council leaders even reportedly helped notorious anti-American figures such as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meet with U.S. academics, business leaders, and the press. Ahmadinejad has

At UN, Trump Ignores Climate Panic, Promotes Religious Freedom

Nicodemus Daoud Matti Sharaf, the Orthodox Bishop of Mosul and one of the leading Christian voices in the Middle East, gave a stirring interview to the National Catholic Register a few years ago. That interview, while informative, also sent a message that should trouble us all: the West cares more about frogs than about Middle-Eastern Christians. Unfortunately, events around the globe this week have shown that this dichotomy is alive and well. The mainstream media and progressive newsmakers have devoted a great deal of attention to long-term climate issues, and lately they have been placing a young girl who doesn’t

Will New Trump Admin Commission Reclaim Human Rights Debate?

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the creation of a State Department “Commission on Unalienable Rights.” This commission will reorient American foreign policy on human rights in a constitutional direction, focusing on the “unalienable rights” endowed by our creator and centering around the Bill of Rights. It also will reaffirm the United States’ commitment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and reflect the administration’s commitment to the family. Although many support the measure, others, particularly on the Left, are attempting to steer public discourse against the commission. But why, you may ask, would anyone oppose

How President Trump Could Score a Huge Win in Venezuela

President Trump was recently presented with one of the greatest foreign policy tests of his administration when Nicolas Maduro’s regime closed its doors to humanitarian aid attempting to enter Venezuela by land and sea. Despite the United States’ dubious history of intervention in Latin American politics, the administration has been right not to ignore the political and humanitarian crisis unfolding south of our border. If the Trump administration continues to respond to Venezuela as a humanitarian crisis (rather than a military one) by fighting for the delivery humanitarian aid and laying the groundwork for a negotiated political settlement, President Trump

President Trump’s Syria Decision Draws on Hard Lessons from History

President Trump recently expressed his intent to withdraw US forces from Syria and Afghanistan. This should not be a major surprise. Trump campaigned in 2016 on an America First message, taking aim at many of the previous two administrations’ policies. He blasted American intervention in Iraq and proclaimed that we should leave Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power, allowing him to fight ISIS in Syria. He voiced a desire to “get along” with Russia and even suggested that NATO may be unnecessary. He criticized nation building and promised to build a military so great and powerful that we would never

An ‘America First’ Mining Policy Would Counter Russia, China

The Trump White House has poured much energy into making America more economically competitive with China. Yet while much of these efforts have been directed at changing China’s domestic policies from abroad, one secret for improving American competitiveness is lying right under our feet: harnessing America’s mineral resources. A new report authored by Dr. Ned Mamula, a geologist and author (along with Ann Bridges) of the book Groundbreaking! America’s New Quest for Mineral Independence, makes the compelling case for an ‘America First’ mining policy to strengthen America’s economic and national security interests. The report notes that while America led the world
