Ancient war criminal Henry Kissinger doled out some measured praise for Donald Trump on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this Sunday.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a bumbling fool and Putin’s top mouthpiece in Washington, got spectacularly owned in an exchange with Yahoo News anchor Bianna Golodryga, whom he accused of bias for being born in the former Soviet Union. Rohrabacher claims he is under consideration for the Secretary of State position under…
According to American diplomatic parlance, the city of Jerusalem does not belong to Israel, or any country, for that matter. But when Donald Trump spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, he promised that this policy would change: Jerusalem would henceforth be recognized as the capital of Israel.
Are you so unimpressed with our presidential candidates? Thinking about voting for Jill “who knows about vaccines” Stein, or Gary “what is Aleppo” Johnson instead? “It’s so hard to choose between two equally bad options!” you sigh. “Might as well go with a third party, that makes me feel nice.”
Sun-kissed ass plug Donald Trump’s foreign policy team is notoriously a joke. (He has said that he is his own primary foreign policy adviser—Why? Because he’s trying to induce an epidemic of congestive heart failure.) According to the Washington Post, it may, somehow, be even more of a joke than we thought.
If you have been listening to the words coming out of Ben Carson’s mouth, it is clear to you that one of the leading Republican candidates is dangerously uncomfortable with matters of foreign policy. It is also abundantly clear to his own advisors.
Are you sick of unabashed Hillary Clinton fangirling? Then you probably shouldn't read this.
The suggestion that the president may have heeded several liberal interventionists in his own administration — including Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and National Security staffer Samantha Power — has inflamed a boys-against-girls war. Just ask Andrea Mitchell.
'Tis the season for "best of" roundups, and along with the best clothes and movies and clips are some really...dubious lists. Herewith, some of the very worst of the best to pass through our long-suffering mailboxes:
Over the last nine months, Beltway pundits and insiders have cracked jokes about Clinton's standing in the Administration. But this month, HRC is riding high in the polls and dominating the media. Who's laughing now?
Under pressure from such leaders as Gordon Brown, who asserted that he wouldn't have British troops fighting for a democracy that "is infringing human rights," Afghanistan is reconsidering a recent law that legalized marital rape.
Back in August, I was lucky enough to interview Rachel Maddow at the Democratic convention; now, 6 months - and one anchor chair - later, I got to check in and see how everything's going.
The McCain campaign, led by Nancy
Pfotenhauer Pfuckingsucks, started its war of expectation management today by attacking the moderator of this Thursday's VP debate, PBS' Gwen Ifill. Pfuckingsucks told Fox & Friends Steve Doocy that "normally, in Vice Presidential debates, you see a more even-handed approach" to…
Yo citizens! North Korea was just about to celebrate its 20th anniversary on our State Sponsors Of Terrorism list when Condi Rice went and pulled them abruptly off it. Now she's telling everyone we'll be sending them food and shit!! Megan is skeptical about this, but with food prices where they are right now and all…
On Sunday, George Will wrote a column arguing that Hillary's loss is its own proof that sexism wasn't the reason she lost. Hmmm, illogical-sounding! And yet compelling nonetheless. Because thanks to TNR I had just read a collection of thirty-something thoughts culled from more than a dozen anonymous emails from…
