    In a 2021 interview with the Stanford Review, Blake Masters was asked for a historical figure he admired. He chose two. The first was George Washington, possibly the best-known military general, slave owner, and president in American history. “I don’t think people realize how much of a boss this guy was,” Masters explained. The second was Lee Kuan Yew. LKY, as he’s often called, was Singapore’s prime minister from 1959 to 1990 and oversaw its economic miracle. He turned the former British colony into a go-go free market paradise. As it grew, Singapore instituted a far-ranging welfare state. The government...

    The Washington Post changed the headline of an opinion piece by Fareed Zakaria after facing intense backlash on Twitter over the suggestion that Democrats should “Forget Pronouns.” The article was first posted on Thursday with the headline, “Forget Pronouns: Democrats need to become the party of building things,” and Zakaria shared the article on Twitter with the commentary that getting “stuff done” is “a lot more important to most Americans than using the right pronouns.” Zakaria’s message was widely criticized, with many emphasizing the importance of respecting pronouns and paying attention to the needs of transgender people. Chasten Buttigieg, husband...

    Historian and author Jon Meacham said Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that if former President Donald Trump runs again in 2024, it would be a constitutional crisis. Zakaria said, “I want to lay out what seems to me a reasonable scenario, which is Donald Trump seems to be trying to control the Republican Party for a purpose. This is not just a hobby. He would like to run again. If he runs again, assumption number one, he wants to run, assumption number two, he will get the nomination because the party seemed enthralled with him. He will run, and...

    Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said on Sunday that he does not expect China to launch a full-on military attack on Taiwan in the next decade. During an appearance on CNN, Kissinger told host Fareed Zakaria that the "ultimate creation of one China" is the objective of Chinese policy, but he doesn’t expect Beijing to use military force in the near future.
  • Bad Joke! Poll Highlights How Liberal Media Missed Mark on Biden Boom Propaganda

    The liberal media slobbered over how President Joe Biden could return the U.S. economy to glory. So far, their optimism has been a bad joke, and a new poll highlights just how badly they missed the mark. New York Times foreign affairs columnist Tom Friedman spewed in an absurd March op-ed headlined, “The Biden Boom,” that Biden had a “chance to supercharge the economy.” He argued: “Biden’s stimulus will fuel an already restructuring economy and supercharge it.” He said concerning Biden’s gargantuan stimulus that “there are lots of signs that we could be headed for just such an explosion in...

    CNN host Fareed Zakaria hijacked former President Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” and slapped it on President Joe Biden’s gargantuan federal spending. Zakaria fawned in a new op-ed headlined, “How Biden’s New Deal can really make America great again.” He went on to pretend that “Trump claimed he wanted to ‘Make America Great Again,’ President Biden is attempting to actually do it.” Zakaria must have missed economist and The Lindsey Group CEO Lawrence Lindsey’s October 2020 op-ed headlined, “The Trump Boom Is Real.” But according to Zakaria, “Biden’s infrastructure plan is the first major fiscal program in five...

    With the liberal media apparently feeling confident that President Trump will be leaving office, they seem to be acknowledging inconvenient truths about the president that they have kept buried for the last four years. Take CNN host Fareed Zakaria, on this morning's New Day. Discussing how foreign policy might be different under a Biden administration, Zakaria began with platitudes about other countries being hopeful that the US would get "back in the game" and "help organize cooperative solutions around the world, get engaged with problem solving," on "climate change" and other issues. But then Zakaria dropped a bombshell. Asked how...

    The liberal media has gone to bat for fellow liberal and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates against “conspiracy” theories regarding the coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China. But recent comments from Gates on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS shilling for the Chinese government may have just made that mission to insulate the billionaire a bit harder. In his questioning of Gates, CNN Host Fareed Zakaria said: “You've been making this case for international cooperation very powerfully and in my mind persuasively. There is right now in Washington a very different mood, which is to say far from cooperating with the second largest...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s 2016 nominee, said Sunday on CNN that America has “some absolute misogyny.” Host Fareed Zakaria asked, “Do you think that the United States today is still misogynistic in many aspects of its life?” Clinton said, “I think that the unconscious biasses that exist in our society, in any society, even ones where on paper they have advanced much further with things like paid family leave, for example, paid child care and the like to empower women to make their own choices. That still is at work. The double standard, particularly in...

    Former Secretary of State and retired four-star U.S. Army General Colin Powell described foreign policy under President Donald Trump as “in shambles,” in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Sunday. “I was a Republican who was Ronald Reagan’s National Security Advisor. I was a Republican who worked for George Herbert Walker Bush, and worked for George W. Bush. I’m a moderate Republican who believes that we should have strong foreign policy, strong defense policy, that we have to look out for our people, and we ought to work hard to making sure we’re one country and one team,” Powell declared....

    CNN's Fareed Zakaria laments that President Donald Trump was correct that there is a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. From his Sunday program, 'Fareed Zakaria GPS': FAREED ZAKARIA, CNN: Given President Trump's mean spirited and often bigoted attitudes on immigration, it pains me to say this, but he is right, that the United States faces a crisis with its asylum system. Democrats might hope that the out-of-control situation at the southern border undermines Trump's image among his base as a tough guy who can tackle immigration. But they should be careful. It could actually work to the president's advantage. Since...
  • CNN's Fareed Zakaria: Guys, Trump is Right About the Asylum Abuse Crisis on the Southern Border

    The situation on the U.S. southern border with Mexico continues to deteriorate as hundreds of thousands of Central Americans falsely claim asylum, overwhelming Border Patrol and HHS facilities. But while most Democrats are still sitting by with complaints and false accusations instead of solutions, others are finally admitting a crisis exists. CNN's Fareed Zakaria is one of them, who took time on his show this week to detail how the current asylum system is being gamed at devastating levels. "It pains me to say this but he [President Trump] is right that the United States faces a crisis with its...

    It’s come to this: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria has emerged as one of the first liberal journalists to admit that the U.S. system of asylum is “out of control” and is being “gamed.”  He discussed the growing crisis on his program, “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” and in a recent column in the Washington Post saying it “pains me to say that he [Trump] is right.”He acknowledges that the number of asylum seekers has skyrocketed in the last five years [3 of which were during the Reign of Obama] which has led to a “staggering backlog in immigration courts.”Zakaria calls the current asylum rules...

    VIDEO In a stunning admission on his June 30 show, CNN host Fareed Zakaria admitted that President Donald Trump is absolutely right about the abuse of the asylum system. Of course, Zakaria's motivation for this admission is his recognition that the Democrats, especially their candidates for president in 2020, are committing political suicide by basically calling for Open Borders.

    Whatever the ultimate outcome of President Trump’s conflict with Mexico, one consequence is already clear. He has undermined one of the most impressive U.S. foreign policy achievements of the past three decades. Mexico used to be a reflexively anti-American country, radical and resentful toward its powerful neighbor to the north. But starting in the 1990s, through the careful efforts of leaders on both sides of the border, that changed. Until Trump came along.

    To many, Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the US Supreme Court is not just a victory for President Donald Trump, but for Trumpism at large. And it is this fact that unsettles so much of the nation. Trump's presidency is marked not by political ideology but by personality. As former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican, told CNN's Fareed Zakaria, "We the people" has been replaced by "me the president." This Trumpian way of operating values winning over decency and power over unity. It is also a force that has proven to be both effective and infectious, and its malevolence...

    Often while watching CNN, one can only just shake their head at the utter lack of self-awareness regarding many of their anti-Trump declarations. One such moment occurred during Tuesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360 when infamous plagiarist and CNN host Fareed Zakaria chastised President Trump, suggesting that no one believed what he said. And to add to the irony of the situation, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that it was a sorry state of affairs. After playing clips of President Trump talking about how he doesn’t like to broadcast military actions, Cooper questioned Zakaria about Trump’s statement about pulling out...
