“At a time when Saudi Arabia in particular is seeking to create a grand regional alliance to counter the rising Iranian hegemony, taking an open-handed approach to the refugee crisis being kicked up by Saudi Arabia and Iran’s regional proxy wars is one, sure way to win a major soft power victory in that ongoing struggle. It should also be America’s price of admission for dealing with this alliance: if the Sunni Arab states want American backing for this endeavor against Iran, these states must accept the lion’s share of Muslims fleeing the region’s various civil conflicts.”
Most Western analysts are incorrect in their view on Russian foreign policy intentions. Very often, they focus solely on Russia’s western side and completely ignore Russia’s Far East.

Venezuela is imploding. Iran, Russia, and China have increased their holdings in the region. America has ignored Latin America for years. Meanwhile, the threat posed by Illegal Immigration to the U.S. increases as instability does. The U.S. cannot ignore Venezuela.
The Trump Administration has promised to not only build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but that Mexico will pay for that wall. Yet, imposing a tariff would likely cause a global reaction against America and simply taxing remittances is insufficient. Therefore, in my newest article over at American Greatness, I advocate for increasing regulations of U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas exports into Mexico until they consent to pay for the wall.
My next article over at American Greatness. Canada, once our bucolic neighbor to the north, has become the land where our greatest foes–like the terrible northern wind–may soon emanate from, due to Canadian Socialist Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s open borders mania.
The United States has become consumed with the issue of Illegal Immigration.

This article assesses the security risks posed to America by allowing its southwestern border to remain open to all.
