An Obama Plot to Sabotage Trump? By Patrick J. Buchanan

An Obama Plot to Sabotage Trump? By Patrick J. Buchanan

Devin Nunes just set the cat down among the pigeons. Two days after FBI Director James Comey assured us there was no truth to President Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped by Barack Obama, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Trump may have had more than just a small point. The U.S. intelligence community,

Is McCain Hijacking Trump’s Foreign Policy? By Patrick J. Buchanan

„The senator from Kentucky,” said John McCain, speaking of his colleague Rand Paul, „is working for Vladimir Putin … and I do not say that lightly.” What did Sen. Paul do to deserve being called a hireling of Vladimir Putin? He declined to support McCain’s call for a unanimous Senate vote to bring Montenegro into

Is Turkey Lost to the West? By Patrick J. Buchanan

Not long ago, a democratizing Turkey, with the second-largest army in NATO, appeared on track to join the European Union. That’s not likely now, or perhaps ever. Last week, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan compared Angela Merkel’s Germany to Hitler’s, said the Netherlands was full of „Nazi remnants” and „fascists,” and suggested the Dutch ambassador go

Is a Korean Missile Crisis Ahead? By Patrick J. Buchanan

To back up Defense Secretary „Mad Dog” Mattis’ warning last month, that the U.S. „remains steadfast in its commitment” to its allies, President Donald Trump is sending B-1 and B-52 bombers to Korea. Some 300,000 South Korean and 15,000 U.S. troops have begun their annual Foal Eagle joint war exercises that run through April. „The

Lavrov vs. McCain: Is Russia an Enemy? By Patrick J. Buchanan

The founding fathers of the Munich Security Conference, said John McCain, would be „be alarmed by the turning away from universal values and toward old ties of blood, and race, and sectarianism.” McCain was followed by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov who called for a „post-West world order.” Russia has „immense potential” for that said Lavrov,

Is a Trump-Putin Detente Dead? By Patrick J. Buchanan

Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that he read the nation and the world better than his rivals. He saw the surging power of American nationalism at home, and of ethnonationalism in Europe. And he embraced Brexit. While our bipartisan establishment worships diversity, Trump saw Middle America recoiling from the demographic change brought

The Deep State Targets Trump By Patrick J. Buchanan

When Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as national security adviser, Bill Kristol purred his satisfaction, „If it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.” To Kristol, the permanent regime, not the elected president and his government, is the real defender and rightful repository of our liberties. Yet it was

Is the Left Playing with Fire Again? By Patrick J. Buchanan

To those who lived through that era that tore us apart in the ’60s and ’70s, it is starting to look like „deja vu all over again.” And as Adlai Stevenson, Bobby Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey did then, Democrats today like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are pandering to the hell-raisers, hoping to ride their

Trump Must Break Judicial Power By Patrick J. Buchanan

„Disheartening and demoralizing,” wailed Judge Neil Gorsuch of President Trump’s comments about the judges seeking to overturn his 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from the Greater Middle East war zones. What a wimp. Did our future justice break down crying like Sen. Chuck Schumer? Sorry, this is not Antonin Scalia. And just what

The Coming Clash With Iran By Patrick J. Buchanan

When Gen. Michael Flynn marched into the White House Briefing Room to declare that „we are officially putting Iran on notice,” he drew a red line for President Trump. In tweeting the threat, Trump agreed. His credibility is now on the line. And what triggered this virtual ultimatum? Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said Flynn, attacked a

The First Firestorm By Patrick J. Buchanan

That hysterical reaction to the travel ban announced Friday is a portent of what is to come if President Donald Trump carries out the mandate given to him by those who elected him. The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on

Trump: America for the Americans! By Patrick J. Buchanan

  As the patriotic pageantry of Inauguration Day gave way to the demonstrations of defiance Saturday, our new America came into view. We are two nations now, two peoples. Though bracing, President Trump’s inaugural address was rooted in cold truths, as he dispensed with the customary idealism of inaugurals that are forgotten within a fortnight

Reagan and Trump: American Nationalists By Patrick J. Buchanan

Since World War II, the two men who have most terrified this city by winning the presidency are Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. And they have much in common. Both came out of the popular culture, Reagan out of Hollywood, Trump out of a successful reality TV show. Both possessed the gifts of showmen —
