    Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. announced: 'I cannot recall last time I have seen such a cold anomaly forecast across almost entire USA.' While we end November on a warm note here in the eastern US, there are changes unfolding across the Northern Hemisphere that will likely bring a widespread very cold air mass into the US next week. This cold air mass is first going to arrive in Alaska this upcoming weekend with some spots in that state plunging to 40 degrees below zero and way below normal for early December. After that, the cold air dives into the...

    India’s foreign policy has been forged in the crucible of its geopolitical challenges. It is surrounded by failing states, including Pakistan and Bangladesh, and hemmed by an emergent superpower, China, with whom it shares a troubled history. One has referred in this column of China’s growing proximity to Pakistan, best exemplified by the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Even though the threats posed to India include the passage of the CPEC through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), the location of the corridor, and the internal conflicts in Pakistan between hardliners on Kashmir and votaries of economic development, suggest that the danger may be...

    ...Rohingya in the camps, where tens of thousands have been confined since communal violence in 2012, have stopped gathering in groups to avoid attracting suspicion. In at least one village they were ordered to demolish fences surrounding their homes. There is good reason to be afraid. A few dozen miles north, in northern Rakhine’s Maungdaw township, a conflict is raging between the military and the Rohingya population. A series of deadly attacks on security forces by a group apparently supported by members of the diaspora has raised the spectre of a new insurgency. It has also prompted a severe crackdown....

    America is the world's largest Christian nation. Russia is the largest Christian nation of Europe, and is the largest European nation (population of 143 million). The policies of the current administration are putting America at risk of war with Russia. The cold war is over. The interests that America and Russia share in common as Christian nations, is more important than what divides them. Russia has done more than America in fighting ISIS, and defending the interests of Christians in the Middle East. In response, they have been hated by anti-Christian elites in America, who want war with Russia.

    World War III “A Progressive War” Why Hillary wants World War III is answered best in V.I. Lenin’s own words! Lenin, with principles and tactics precisely enunciated, made particularly urgent the publication of a pamphlet that sums up Social Democratic tactics in relation to war. The pamphlet Socialism and War by Lenin was written in August 1915. Hitler was aware the German edition of the pamphlet was secretly smuggled into Germany – into Berlin, Leipzig, Bremen and other cities, where it was secretly distributed by supporters of the Zimmerwald and by the Karl Liebknecht group.

    Two hundred and forty years before Brexit, there was Amexit, also known as the American Revolution. In terms of historical consequence, the Brexit vote and the American Revolution don’t occupy the same universes, but they are connected by a belief in popular sovereignty and a refusal to be governed by a remote authority with only an attenuated mechanism — if that — for representation. In Brexit, the British people decided that their Parliament should trump the governing machinery of the EU, and in our Revolution we decided that our Colonial assemblies should trump the governing machinery of the British Empire....

    Great Britain’s vote last month to exit the European Union has been widely described as the country's most consequential decision in decades. But its significance is paltry compared to that of history's original "Leave" resolution, the 240th anniversary of which Americans commemorate this Fourth of July.The unanimous vote in the Second Continental Congress, which affirmed that "these united colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent states ... absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown," was the most far-reaching political event of the 18th century. John Adams, writing from Philadelphia to his wife Abigail, called the vote not...

    On December 1 of this year, the Canadian government will lift the visa requirement for Mexican visitors. Immigration experts are concerned that “Canada will now become even more of a launching point for illegal entry into the United States.” Immigration watchers are concerned that illegal aliens will use the opportunity to come across the “largely unguarded” Canadian-United States border. The Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), Jessica Vaughan, told Breitbart Texas, “This could be enticing because some parts of our southern border have been hardened and are now very difficult to cross without being detected.”...

    I am not a citizen of the world. I am not going to be part of your collective. I don’t respect the United Nations, international law or think any other culture compares favorably to our own. Don’t get me wrong: I respect the Brits, the Israelis, the Aussies and a few other nations that have built great legacies their children can be proud of, but they’re not America. We’re better than the rest of the world…or we used to be. It doesn’t matter how many Americans are out of work or how many immigrants end up on welfare; we keep...

    Is it any wonder that citizens of one of the greatest and strongest nations in human history would recoil from an international order that was proving mainly that it could enrich an elite without seeming to lift a finger to preserve the nation’s core values and traditions — the very things that had made it great and strong? Is it any wonder that citizens of other great countries are —wondering what loyalty they owe to that same elite? And so we launch yet another phase in human history, where what’s old — nations pursuing their own interests — is new...

    CBS releases 2016 polls from battleground states like Florida, Colorado, and Wisconsin, showing that a significant number of voters are sympathetic to messages similar to the successful “Brexit” campaign in the UK’s EU Referendum. rom CBS News: Battleground states are called battlegrounds for a reason: They’re often close, and 2016 looks like no exception. Hillary Clinton holds narrow leads over Donald Trump across a number of key states of Florida (up three points, 44 to 41 percent); Colorado (Clinton 40 percent, Trump 39 percent); Wisconsin (Clinton up 41 percent to 36 percent) and North Carolina, which has flipped back and...

    Great news from yesterday evening, as the British people (at least the English and Welsh ones) voted to secede from the Second Belgian Empire. “British voters chose to ‘leave’ the European Union on Thursday, defying the polls — and President Barack Obama, who had urged Britain to ‘remain’ in the EU. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had also urged Britain to stay in the EU. Only Donald Trump had backed the campaign to leave. “Republican strategists had panned Trump’s decision to travel to the UK in the midst of campaign turmoil, and in the wake of his blistering attack...
