Trump, you're fired

In one more astonishing display of self-aggrandizement and megalomania, soon-to-be Ex-President Donald Trump tweeted that the source of perhaps the most serious cyber attack ever on America was China, not Russia. Notably  the only one supposedly in the know that fingers China instead of Russia, Trump wrote: “The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media... Read more »

What I said in 2014 about the U.S. going turtle

Back when I was writing an op-ed column for the Chicago Tribune, I worried about the  U.S. going turtle in its foreign policy. That danger from the growing isolationist sentiment–later adopted by future president Donald Trump and then-president Barack Obama–has manifested in a world that is more dangerous. Here is the column from then: U.S. power... Read more »

Why the probe of the Trump/Russian connection must continue until the bitter end

Is President Donald Trump really that dense that he did not understand why his comments at his press conference with Russian tyrant Vlad Putin raised such a stink? (Trump surprised at fierce criticism of Putin news conference) Is he so moronic that he can take Putin’s word that Russia didn’t meddle  in our elections over  U.S. intelligence... Read more »

Washington Post, who are the sources for the Trump-Russia story?

There’s no chance in hell that it will name the anonymous sources. But when are we going to stop accepting, willy-nilly, anything and everything that an unnamed source says. Sure, I know that without Deep Throat we would never had know about Watergate and Nixon and his crew of lawbreakers would never have gone to... Read more »

Trump's chance to make his stand clear on Russia

The peaceful protests in Russia against corruption (i.e. Vladimir Putin and his dissolute regime) gives President Donald Trump a good opportunity to take the right side on an enemy of American interests. . Throughout his campaign, Trump was inexplicably friendly to Putin and hard on NATO among other positions that made the president appear to... Read more »

Trump Scorecard: Russia, D+

What’s going on, if anything, between Russia and President Donald Trump? It’s a legitimate question, hanging over just about every foreign policy move his administration makes. Remember then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s silly “reset” button with Russia? The idea was to seek better relations between the two countries. Republicans ridiculed the whole scenario as the...

The 25th anniversary of the freeing of the 'Captive Nations'

Most readers of ChicagoNow.com don’t know of  or remember the “Captive Nations.” They were those nations that were enslaved by tyrannical rule, mostly by brutal  communist dictatorships. The captive nations began to breathe freedom with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union 25 years ago. You had to have been there when... Read more »

Putin's Russia poised to overrun Ukraine; thanks, Obama

I told you so in my Tribune column just four days ago: President Barack Obama’s limp foreign policy, his “leading from behind,” and his failure to project American power and influence to areas of our strategic importance has been a virtual invitation to Russian Premier Vladimir Putin to intervene in Ukraine’s unstable political situation and...

Mitt Romney was right; Barack Obama was wrong

From Russia to Mali to Detroit, Romney’s biggest fans say they’ve been vindicated. “Obviously, it would have been nice if any of these incidents would have occurred during the campaign.” Most apropos this very day was his warning about Russia being our “number one geopolitical foe.” He was ridiculed for it by candidate Barack Obama to...
