Today, President Trump returns to the United Nations to give the heads of state and diplomats attending its General Assembly a reprise of the “tough love” he dished out last year.

Now, however, the President can point to several steps that he has taken in the intervening period to augment well-deserved criticism with concrete corrective action. For example, he abandoned the theater of the absurd that is the UN Human Rights Council, an organization whose members are among the most notorious of all human rights abusers. 

Next, Mr. Trump slashed U.S. funding for the UN agency that perpetuates and enables the Palestinians’ victimhood narrative and their refusal to make peace with Israel.

It’s time he did the same to the UN’s anti-corruption arm being used selectively to undermine another key American ally, the government of Guatemala.

Give ’em hell, Mr. President.

The political warfare being waged against Brett Kavanaugh is entering a sordid and potentially decisive phase.  Those opposed to the judge’s appointment to the Supreme Court have exploited undocumented allegations of sexual abuse by a woman he knew in high school to delay a vote on his nomination.  They both are supposed to testify on Thursday. 

Meanwhile, and predictably, more unproven charges of such misconduct are being leveled against Judge Kavanaugh.  They too will be seized upon to run out the clock. 

The time thus bought will likely enable Senate and other Leftists to intensify their serial character assassination of a man with a long and honorable record of public service. Expect vociferous and perhaps violent disruptions of the Senate’s deliberations that will make the spectacle of the initial Kavanaugh hearings seem tame by comparison.

That’s wrong and must be thwarted.

In the election of 2016, American voters responded to – and repudiated –  the Left and the “fundamental transformation” of this country it pursued during the Obama presidency. My guess is that a similar sentiment may prove decisive this November.

Consider, for example, the Leftists’ undermining of the rule of law. Look no further than Hillary Clinton’s serial and as-yet-unpunished criminal conduct that would land anybody else in jail.

Then there’s the appalling double standard for Democrats who abuse women.  For instance, the Left is evidently untroubled by recent, documented evidence that the Democratic Party’s Vice Chairman, Rep. Keith Ellison, repeatedly and physically abused his girlfriend.  But, it is destroying the reputation and future prospects of Judge Brett Kavanaugh over decades-old and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct.

Americans are fundamentally fair. What’s happening at the moment is not and must be rejected this Fall.

It’s increasingly clear that President Trump and his agenda are confronting not just a so-called “Deep State,” but a “Counter-state” – an institutionalized effort to subvert and otherwise thwart our elected Chief Executive.

New undercover videos by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas identify individuals nominally working for the President, but actually working against him.  Ditto the recent, “anonymous” op.ed. in the New York Times.

And then there are those who formerly engaged in such activity, like ex- CIA Director John Brennan, who are now publicly urging their colleagues still on the inside to refuse to follow the President’s legal orders. Specifically, they seek to block the declassification of documents detailing the Counter-state’s efforts to defeat him – before and after the 2016 election.

What’s underway is a full-blown crisis for our constitutional republic. Vote this fall to drain the Swamp.  It may be our last chance.

Sharia is a supremacist ideology that compels faithful Muslims to engage in jihad to make the entire world submit to its anti-Constitutional totalitarian code.

So, what would a man who has embraced Sharia – and those who seek to make it the supreme law of the land in this country – do as the top law enforcement officer of the State of Minnesota?  This is a legitimate public policy question since such a man, Congressman Keith Ellison, seeks to be his state’s next attorney general.

A new book by national security expert, author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon raises a host of similar questions about Mr. Ellison’s long record of associations, not only with Sharia-supremacists, but also Marxists, Communists and so-called Democratic Socialists.  No wonder the Congressman doesn’t want you to read it.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un today commended President Trump for stabilizing the peninsula his country has relentlessly sought to dominate since its founding.  But the stability Kim is pursuing means preserving his nuclear arsenal, not eliminating it, and achieving unification with South Korea on his terms.

The backdrop for Kim’s remark was yet-another summit meeting with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea. With each passing day, Moon – a longtime leftist apologist for the North – has doubled-down on appeasing, legitimating and empowering the Stalinist regime across the Demilitarized Zone.

For example, in the run-up to today’s meeting, Moon’s government has reportedly transferred billions of dollars worth of equipment and other materiel in connection with establishing a so-called “Liaison Office.” Such an infusion will only serve to prop up Kim and perpetuate the nuclear threat he poses.  That’s a false and dangerous “stability.”

Confirm Brett Kavanaugh

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Under circumstances that can only be described as suspicious, Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of conduct while in high school towards a young woman that is being seized upon to justify keeping him off the Supreme Court.  He adamantly denies the charge.

It’s noteworthy that sixty-five women who knew Judge Kavanaugh in high school have joined many others who have studied and/or worked with him since in attesting to his outstanding character, integrity and honorable treatment of others in general, and women in particular.

Brett Kavanaugh is an all-American, one whose intellect, patriotism, religious conviction and selfless service – both in government and of the charitable kind – exemplifies what is best about our country.  Those who are tempted to deprive him, and us, of his brilliant jurisprudence on the Supreme Court should get a grip, and get on with his confirmation.

Ten years ago today, the global economy was rocked by the virtually overnight collapse of the major U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers. The cost was measured not only in terms of the massive economic damage done.  Arguably, the attendant political turmoil propelled Barack Obama to the presidency, enabling his stated ambition to “fundamentally transform” this country.

Veteran financial analyst and best-selling author Kevin Freeman contends that Lehman was subjected to a type of bear-market attack known as “naked short-selling.”  His forensic investigation suggests it was engineered by Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds of Qatar and the UAE.

Worse yet, Mr. Freeman warns that the United States is dangerously vulnerable to economic warfare today.  That’s particularly concerning at a time when another, potentially decisive election looms in which the strength of our economy is an even more important factor than usual.

Twenty-five years ago today, Yasser Arafat fraudulently promised to make peace with Israel in the Oslo Accords. President Trump is determined to stop rewarding the Palestinians for failing to do so.   

Over their strenuous objections and threats, Mr. Trump moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to its capital, Jersualem.  He cut taxpayer funding of the UN refugee agency that has encouraged and enabled the Palestinians’ victimhood narrative, intransigence and jihadism. And he just shut down their influence operation’s headquarters in Washington.

The President is shattering the myths that the Palestinians’ cause is the region’s most important problem and must be resolved on their terms or risk a wider war.

This new reality ought to induce the Palestinians at last to end their futile and costly conflict with an Israel that wants nothing more than to be left alone in security and peace.

There’s trouble brewing on the Korean peninsula. That may come as a surprise in light of reports that President Trump has agreed to hold a second summit meeting with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.

To be sure, another summit would be problematic if it proves again to be long on empty promises of the North’s disarmament – promises that simply serve to obscure, rather than curb, Kim’s relentless build-up of his nuclear, missile and other military forces.

Even more worrying, however, is the prospect that South Korea’s radical leftist President Moon Jae-in seems determined to engage in actual, unilateral and reckless disarmament – among other unwarranted concessions to Pyongyang. 

The effect could not only be to undermine Mr. Trump’s diplomacy, but perhaps to encourage Kim Jong-un to miscalculate and act on his dynasty’s decades-long ambition to unify the two Koreas by force.
