President Trump intends to withdraw the U.S. from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty – and the Russians are pitching a fit. 

Vladimir Putin insists we remain bound by an accord that even the Obama administration said the Kremlin has been violating for years, threatening our allies and forces in Europe and Asia with new nuclear weapons for which we have no in-kind deterrent.  

The INF Treaty also imposes no restriction on similar threats increasingly posed by the Communist Chinese to America’s personnel, bases and friends in the Western Pacific. 

Three decades ago, I helped President Reagan try to negotiate the “Zero-Option” – a deal that would permanently eliminate all intermediate-range missiles – but had to warn the Senate that the INF Treaty wouldn’t do that.

Mr. Trump is right to stop practicing unilateral disarmament and to restore the INF deterrence we need in Europe and Asia.

President Trump faces growing pressure to punish the Saudi government for its role in the apparent, horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi, one of its nationals with legal resident status in the United States.

Mr. Trump is rightly trying to avoid doing so in a way that would benefit our regional adversaries like Iran and the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood – and so-called “friends” who back them, including Turkey and Qatar.

Here’s a plan: First, sanction those who can be proven responsible for the murder of Khashoggi, a so-called “journalist” who was actually a rogue Saudi intelligence operative and Muslim Brother.  And second, couple such punishment with a measure that will reduce our enemies’ ability to capitalize upon it by designating the Muslim Brotherhood as the foreign terrorist organization it is, and begin rolling up its subversive Sharia-supremacist operations in this country and elsewhere.

Hillary Clinton has finally lost her Top Secret security clearance.  It’s about time, since nobody else could have done what she did in terms of violating procedures for handling state secrets and not be doing hard time in prison, to say nothing of being denied access to anything sensitive.

Five of Hillary’s top aides have also lost their clearances. Presumably, one of those yet to be identified is former State Department Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin. 

The question occurs: How did Ms. Abedin ever get a security clearance in the first place?

After all, she has had decades of family and personal ties to the Muslim Brotherhood whose mission is “destroying Western civilization from within.”

Presumably, this staffer was nonetheless cleared at Hillary Clinton’s insistence – early warning of her indifference to the national security and her seriously defective judgement.

Good riddance.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s travels in the Middle East this week showcase geostrategic tectonic shifts that have transformed the region. They have also greatly complicated his mission concerning the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi-born U.S. resident, Saudi intelligence operative and Muslim Brother close to Osama bin Laden.

Mr. Pompeo started in Saudi Arabia, whose Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, is suspected of ordering Khashoggi’s murder. The prince has made his country a far more constructive U.S. partner: opposing such mutual enemies as the terrorist-tied Muslim Brotherhood and Iran; isolating their enabler, Qatar; and increasingly aligning with our key regional ally, Israel.

Today, the Secretary of State visits Turkey, where Saudis are believed to have killed Khashoggi.  The Sharia-supremacist regime of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, however is: enabling the Muslim Brotherhood; helping Iran and Qatar; and menacing Israel.

Godspeed, Mike Pompeo.

President Trump has dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Saudi Arabia to address a thorny problem.  The Saudi government under the influence of its de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been implicated in the suspected, brutal murder of a Saudi-born legal permanent resident of this country by the name of Jamal Khashoggi. 

The Crown Prince – who is universally known by his initials, MBS – has been working closely with the United States and against our common enemies, notably Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). 

Khashoggi was a Muslim Brother and shared, along with his friend, Osama bin Laden, that organization’s goal of supplanting the current government of Saudi Arabia – as it once disastrously did that of Egypt.

The present Saudi government is clearly the lesser of two evils. Messrs. Trump and Pompeo should make clear our displeasure, without endangering it.

This weekend, President Trump welcomed home Pastor Andrew Brunson, a courageous American missionary who worked for decades to minister to Christians in an increasingly Sharia-supremacist Turkey.

The pastor had been incarcerated in harsh and dangerous Turkish prisons for two years by the Islamist regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Until, that is, Mr. Trump decided to do two things that should be used to help many millions of other Christians still being heavily persecuted in Turkey and elsewhere around the world:

First, hold the persecutors accountable for what they are doing. And second, impose costs for their crimes against humanity.

In addition, the United States must serve notice on persecutors like Erdogan: Our commitment to religious freedom does not apply to those who claim that the practice of their religion entitles them to deny this fundamental human right to people of other faiths.

A Movie Not to Be Missed

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

An extraordinary movie opens this weekend in 650 theaters across the country.  It compellingly depicts the criminal investigation into and prosecution of America’s worst serial killer.  It may become one of the most socially impactful films of all time.

“Gosnell” is named for the doctor whose abortion clinic in Philadelphia became an appallingly unsanitary factory for murdering not only unborn children, but some born alive and at least one of the mothers. It searingly portrays the perpetrator’s unspeakable indifference to the lives he was terminating, the suffering of the survivors and the costs to society.

“Gosnell” is showing after pro-abortion forces and their allies vociferously opposed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and in the run-up to a momentous mid-term election. Everyone troubled by the former and voting in the latter should see the film this critical, opening weekend.

Is George Soros the anti-Christ?  While former New York mayor Rudi Giuliani has put the question in play, theologians may be better equipped to debate it than politicians. 

The decades-long record of this billionaire financier and philanthropist, however, is one of such malevolence and destruction that he must at a minimum be considered the anti-Christ’s right-hand man.    

After all, Soros has destroyed national currencies and economies, with ruinous effects on millions of innocent people.  He has cynically professed his commitment to “open societies,” while using his immense wealth to undermine democratically elected governments.  In France, he is a convicted felon.

And Soros has invested in countless initiatives that have helped fracture this country, while helping its enemies, foreign and domestic.

A documentary film exposing George Soros’ truly demonic predations can be viewed for free at www.AmericanEvangelicals.com. Please watch it and pass it on.

Nikki Haley has been a U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in the mold of Jeane Kirkpatrick, Daniel Patrick Moynihan and John Bolton – a forceful champion for our country and a no-holds-barred critic of a UN that is wasteful, corrupt and relentlessly hostile to America and her interests and allies.  She personified Make America Great Again on the world stage and will be much missed.

That’s especially true if she were to be replaced by Dina Habib Powell.  Ms. Powell was deputy to National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, the insubordinate subordinate who frequently subverted Mr. Trump and his agenda. She’s a Goldman Sachs globalist, a strong supporter of the Clintons and a close friend of their Muslim Brotherhood-tied staffer, Huma Abedin.

President Trump and our nation need another forceful, reliable advocate for America First policies at the United Nations, not Dina Powell.

Brett Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh, thank heaven. He was formally sworn in last night at the White House and used the occasion to make the sort of dignified, gracious statement that has characterized his many years of distinguished public service – and that suggests he’ll be one of the best ever to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Trump used the occasion to apologize to the new Justice and his family for “the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure.” It speaks volumes about the perpetrators of this damage that the Kavanaughs – including their small children – seem likely to continue to be subjected to more pain and suffering for the foreseeable future.

So might Senators who supported Brett Kavanaugh, like Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, who courageously cast the deciding vote.

They deserve our thanks, and need our prayers.
