Get Greenland Before China Does

In my recent op-ed for American Greatness, I was the first of apparently many to make the case that Trump’s gambit for Greenland was actually about denying China access to the Arctic Circle.

Nationalism Is the Key for Space Exploration

Nationalist governments in China, Japan, and India have led these countries to make bold moves in the strategic domain of space. A lack of nationalism and cultural pride in the United States is causing America to lose–bigly.

Not Your Father’s Disruption

In quantum computing, biotech, and space mining the United States is competing for dominance with China…and the U.S. is losing. Innovation and disruption go hand-in-hand whichever side embraces this first will win the 100-Year Marathon.

Shadow Wars For Me, But Not For Thee

The United States won the West, specifically California, with an early form of what Sean McFate would refer to as “shadow warfare.” Putin did something similar in Crimea in 2014. Rather than decry it impotently, the United States should wage its own shadow war in defense of its allies (until Washington and Moscow can actually create a workable peace deal between themselves, that is).

Trading Ukraine for Venezuela Would Be a Good Deal

President Trump is a transactional leader. So, too, is Vladimir Putin. Let’s do the mother-of-all geopolitical deals and get on with more pressing matters of state already. Neither Ukraine nor Venezuela are worth risking a wider war with Russia. And, despite what “experts” in the United States claim, Russia is a declining power with delusions of grandeur. American policy toward Russia has left Putin with little hope. Thus, as he is increasingly boxed in by the West and a rising China to his east, the likelihood of Putin lashing out militarily against the West is higher now than it has ever been.
