  • Jihadism Spreads like Wildfire Across Africa

  • Trump-Putin Summit: What of the Deep-State Spoillers in Washington?
    While the US president Donald Trump seemed willing enough during the historic Helsinki summit to mend US ties with Russia—and he did point his finger at Washington rather than Moscow for bad relations with Russia—it was evident even before the summit that certain quarters in Washington, the spoillers, aren’t in favour of giving US-Russia relations […]

  • Where Putin and Trump See Eye to Eye
    Twenty-four hours after the historic meeting between President Trump and President Putin, the US media gives no sign of knowing what links these two presidents.

  • China’s Middle East Pivot has Sent Washington Packing

  • This Is What Happens Behind Closed Doors When U.S. Presidents Meet With Fed Chairs

  • "Truth Was Irrelevant" WSJ Asks: Was Brennan's Action The Real "Treason"?
    The Wall Street Journal continues to counter  the  liberal mainstream media's Trump Derangement Syndrome, dropping uncomfortable truth-bombs and refusing to back off its intense pressure to get to the truth and hold those responsible, accountable (in a forum that is hard for the establishment to shrug off as 'Alt-Right' or 'Nazi' or be 'punished' by […]
  • "It's All Fake" - Reality TV That Masquerades As American Politics
    Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute, “Big Brother does not watch us, by his choice. We watch him, by ours...

  • Six Reasons Why Credit Suisse Is Very Worried About China's Economy

Americans and Their Military: The Case for Bringing Back the Draft

Charles Rangel of New York has been in the news for two reasons in recent years. First, for allegations of corruption concerning a Puerto Rico vacation spot, a story that gave readers of the New York City tabloids an indelible snapshot of a dozing Rangel at the beach. Second, he is in a difficult primary battle in his district.

He should be better known for a piece of legislation he has sponsored in several different sessions of Congress, never to any avail. Known as H.R. 5741, it would essentially reinstate a service draft for Americans from the ages of 21 to 42, thus ending the all-volunteer military force that has fought our wars for us since the latter years of Vietnam.

It is Memorial Day, the best of moments to weigh how well — or how poorly — we apportion the military burdens of defending American interests.
