A desperate Emmanuel Macron attacks Donald Trump


French President Emmanuel Macron has apparently decided that with his approval ratings in the toilet, his best bet for a political resurgence is to attack the United States.

Jordan’s King Abdullah – Weak, Untrustworthy and Irreplaceable


It is an open secret, seldom discussed, that the regime of King Abdullah II of Jordan is extraordinarily weak. He is viewed in the U.S. as a close ally, whose counsel is sought by senior officials and foreign policy practitioners. But more than an ally, Abdullah is a dependent.
