    Russia may launch an attack on Ukraine on Saturday, February 19, 2022. The attack would likely begin with an air and missile campaign targeting much of Ukraine to decapitate the government and degrade the Ukrainian military as well as the ability of Ukrainian citizens to prepare to resist a subsequent Russian invasion. US and allied governments have been warning of such an attack for some days, pointing to the size of the Russian forces concentrated on Ukraine’s borders.[1] Western officials have additionally said that Russian troops have moved to jumping-off positions for an invasion over the past 24 hours. The...

    On Thursday, October 28, supporters of the People's Mujahidin ‎Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the National Council of ‎Resistance of Iran (NCRI) held a large conference in Washington ‎DC. The conference, titled, "2021 Free Iran Summit: Holding ‎Ebrahim Raisi Accountable for Crimes Against Humanity, ‎Genocide, Regional Meddling, and Nuclear Defiance," ‎ This conference, however, was significantly different from similar ‎meetings that were previously held in the United States.

  • Joe Lieberman: Founding Fathers would have wanted a Trump acquittal

    Former Democratic Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman said that he does not believe there was evidence to impeach President Trump and believes he would have voted to acquit if he were still in the Senate. "The call that President Trump made with President Zelensky of Ukraine was inappropriate, was wrong, it shouldn't have been done," Lieberman said to the Blaze’s Glenn Beck. “But did it reach the point where we can say nine months before an election ... that, if we keep him in office, he represents a danger to the country? I don't think so," he added. Lieberman did say...
  • Dershowitz: Trump Had Even More Legal Justification Eliminating Soleimani than Obama Had with Osama Bin Laden

    Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Thursday evening that President Donald Trump had even more legal authority to eliminate Qassem Soleimani than former President Barack Obama had to take out Osama bin Laden in 2011. “[Soleimani] was a combatant,” explained Dershowitz. “There’s no doubt that he fit the description of ‘combatant.’ He [was] a uniformed member of an enemy military who was actively planning to kill Americans; American soldiers and probably, as well, American civilians.” “It was the right thing to do,” he added. “It was legally justified, and I think we should applaud the president for his...

    Four days ago, the United States military executed a flawless precision strike that killed the worst remaining terrorist on Earth, Qasem Soleimani. The next day, President Donald J. Trump delivered a statement on the successful operation. “As President, my highest and most solemn duty is the defense of our nation and its citizens,” he said. “Soleimani was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him.” “Under my leadership, America’s policy is unambiguous: To terrorists who harm or intend to harm any American, we will find you. We...

    Congratulations are in order for the former senator from Connecticut, Joseph Lieberman. He will be in Monday’s Wall Street Journal with the first really sensible column from a Democrat in this entire election cycle. It’s an op-ed piece that asks why the Democratic Party’s candidates can’t “simply admit Qasem Soleimani’s death makes Americans safer?” “President Trump’s order to take out Qasem Soleimani was,” Mr. Lieberman writes, “morally, constitutionally and strategically correct.” He reckons the President’s decision “deserves more bipartisan support than the begrudging or negative reactions it has received thus far” from his fellow Democrats. Well put. Mr. Lieberman calls...

    Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) on Monday came to the defense of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D), saying he shouldn't yet resign despite the revelation that his medical school yearbook page included a racist photo. Lieberman said during an interview on CNN that there has been a "a rush to judgment that is unfair to" Northam. "One, he says he wasn't in that picture. Two, I think we ought to fairly ask him, did he know the picture was on his page of the yearbook? And three, he ought to be judged in the context of his whole life," Lieberman...

    Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter Baby Prattle: Twitter talk, often as not so much online baby prattle, is destined to come ricocheting back on rookie New York rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who fired off a juvenile Twitter response: ‘New party, who dis?’ after 76-year-old Joe Lieberman made it known in a Fox Business Network interview that he feared her brand of high-tax socialism could doom the party’s chances for long-term dominance in Congress. When you’re 29-going-on18 and your critic is 76 years old, the pickings to go after him are easy.

    ZTE reportedly hires former Sen. Joe Lieberman to spearhead a national security assessment of its products. "There are obviously still concerns about the safety of their products or the extent to which their products could be used to compromise American security in any way or even individual security," Lieberman tells Politico in an interview. ZTE has "decided to really try to get ahead of those concerns and be in a position to answer them," he says. Lieberman adds that while he will register as a lobbyist, he will be focusing on his national security evaluation and won't actually lobby for...

    Since this week’s surprise announcement that Nikki Haley would depart by year’s end, everyone wants to know who’ll replace America’s UN ambassador — who was first dismissed, then hated, then feared and eventually appreciated, heck, even loved (at least by some). The answer, obviously, is up to the never-predictable President Trump, so most names bandied about are speculative, with many driven by wishful thinking. So here’s a wish: Christopher Burnham. Never heard of him? You may soon. Sure, there are other worthy candidates; Washington reporters come up with new ones daily. The much-advertised front-runner, former Deputy National Security Adviser Dina...

    Two former friends of Sen. John McCain say his daughter Meghan McCain's pointed criticism of President Donald Trump in her speech at the Arizona Republican's memorial service on Saturday reflected the character of her late father. "She is her father's daughter," South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "If you say something bad about her dad, you will know it, whether you're the janitor or the President of the United States. She is grieving for the father she adored. I think most Americans understand that." Former independent Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who joined...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) on Sunday praised Meghan McCain's eulogy of her father, which included swipes at President Trump. Graham and Lieberman, two close friends and longtime colleagues of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), expressed pride in Meghan McCain's remarks at a memorial service at the National Cathedral on Saturday. Graham said he was "totally OK" with McCain's remarks, during which she declared "America is already great" and condemned "cheap rhetoric." "She’s a beautiful, talented young lady. She is her father’s daughter. If you say something bad about her dad you will know...

One year later, the bipartisan trio known as the “Three Amigos” is now missing its driving force. McCain, 81, died Saturday evening.

    An Iranian man charged in D.C. with conspiracy and other offenses was so incensed by a U.S. senator who participated in a New York rally against the Tehran regime last fall that he suggested to his alleged co-conspirator that the “motherf—” needs to be shot, according to documents unsealed on Monday. Majid Ghorbani and Ahmadreza Mohammadi-Doostdar stand accused of having collected data for the regime relating to Jewish organizations in Chicago and U.S.-based members of the exiled Iranian opposition group, Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK). They did so, according to an FBI special agent’s affidavit, “for the purpose of enabling the government...

    Joe Lieberman has long been many Republicans favorite Democrat. Not because he’s particularly conservative but because he’s an honest, well-meaning politician… and there aren’t many of those around anymore. Lieberman is in the news again now because he’s penned an op-ed criticizing his party’s shift to the left. Lieberman argues that if Democratic-Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly are the future of the Democrat Party, then the Democrat Party doesn’t have a very bright future ahead. Really the point was, what is the Democratic party going to be? I am still a Democrat and when I see somebody that really says...

    John McCain wanted to give this speech about Senate dysfunction before his brain cancer diagnosis last summer. Then, his longtime aide, speechwriter and friend Mark Salter got a call from McCain with a sudden urgency "’You coming out here? What's the story,’” Salter recalled of his conversation with McCain. “And I said, ‘Yeah, here's what I want to say in the speech.’ And I said, ‘have you gotten the results back.’ You know, he goes, ‘it's not good.’" Salter rushed to Arizona. They finished the speech on the plane back to D.C. "They all stayed in their chairs for his...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he regrets choosing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign. The New York Times reported on Saturday that McCain, while still defending Palin’s performance, said in his upcoming book “The Restless Wave” that he wishes he had instead selected former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) His advisers reportedly had warned against choosing Lieberman, who was once a Democrat, stating that Lieberman’s support of abortion rights could divide Republicans. “It was sound advice that I could reason for myself,” he writes. “But my gut told me to ignore...

    Judging by the rhetoric coming out of Tehran, John Bolton’s appointment as America’s National Security Advisor is the worst thing that ever happened. The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council labeled Bolton’s appointment “a matter of shame.”  The Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy declared,  "The use of hardline elements against the Islamic Republic of Iran shows that the Americans seek to exert more pressure on Iran.”First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri opined, “They (US officials) are wrong to assume that the Iranian nation will give in to their threats against the Islamic Republic.”  ...

    The Democratic party needs to find a leader who'll keep it from being taken over by the liberal wing — or it'll risk losing more elections, warns former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. In an interview to air Sunday with radio host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable," Lieberman stressed the importance of political cooperation between both parties. "Here is my fear about the future of the Democratic Party," said the former Democrat who served as the party's 2000 vice presidential nominee. "In a way, relatively speaking, Hillary Clinton was representative of ... center-left of the Democratic Party, not the pure...
