In my Sunday column at American Greatness, I argue that the United States must move closer to Poland, in order to deter Russia while assiduously working to make the mother-of-all geopolitical deals with Moscow to avoid an actual war and end this silly Cold War 2.0.
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.
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.
