President Trump Needs A New National Security Advisor

President Trump and National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster are allegedly meeting today to discuss the chain-of-command and General McMaster’s future at the White House. This would be a good time for General McMaster to leave the White House and return to the armored battlefield where he is so adept.

President Trump: Time To Designate The Muslim Brotherhood As A Terrorist Organization

The resistance of some of President Trump's advisers to designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization is a grave error for many reasons, not the least of which is that the Muslim Brotherhood is actively conducting subversive operations right here, right now in the United States.

Pharaoh Al-Sisi Takes Control in Egypt: Obama Administration Sacrifices Security and Human Rights

Most of the roughly $75 billion given to Cairo over the years enriched political and military elites and funded the purpose of prestige weapons from American arms makers.  The U.S. never received much “leverage” over Egypt's leaders in return. 

Egypt Close to Helping Christians?

Sharona Schwartz, The Blaze

Just 3 months after the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi, it appears Egyptian authorities are taking a big step toward protecting the freedom of worship for the nation’s Christian community by lifting major restrictions on the construction of new churches.

Violence Against Christians Growing

Noah Beck, Human Events

As Egypt’s Islamists blame Christians for the ouster of Morsi, anti-Christian violence has reached epidemic levels, with some 82 churches across Egypt attacked and heavily damaged by Morsi supporters in 48 hours.

We Must Defeat the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

One America's strategic policy goals since 911 has been (or should have been) to create a counterweight to radical Islam by selling Western ideas of personal liberty and democracy in the Muslim world. By rejecting a radical Islamic government headed by the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian people took a real step toward embracing Western concepts of freedom. That's a significant victory that Obama, McCain and Graham must not be allowed to throw away.

Exiting the Obama Administration's Bloody Egypt Mess

Continuing civil disorder and violence are almost certain.  Terrorism may follow.  Islamists fought a similar campaign against the Mubarak dictatorship two decades ago. Washington’s best policy is to support neither side and leave resolution of this tragic conflict to the Egyptian people.

No Turning Back in Egypt

Patrick Buchanan, WND

Even some of the Twitter-Facebook liberals of Tahrir Square are coming to see Egypt as it is. It's us or them.

America Should Stay Out of Egyptian Bloodbath

As Senator Rand Paul noted in an op-ed for CNN, by “constantly intervening in these troubled parts of the world is that there are often no clear good guys or bad guys. Today's ally can quickly become tomorrow's enemy." McCain, Graham and Obama should keep America out of Egypt and let Egyptians decide where their future lies.

McCain and Lindsey, speaking in Egypt, say Morsi's removal was a military coup and they want an inclusive Democratic process to play out now.

A Foreign Policy for Hypocrites: Washington Should Just Shut Up

The great foreign policy illusion in Washington is that the U.S. government controls international events.  Will U.S. officials never learn? The answer apparently is no.  Just look at Egypt, where American policy combines equal parts hypocrisy and futility. Yet, the administration proclaims that it must continue to hand $1.55 billion annually to the generals in Cairo to preserve its influence.

Cut Cairo’s Dole: It Hurts America and Egypt

Cato's Doug Bandow makes the case that no one in Egypt seems to be listening to Washington today. Egypt’s military is shooting demonstrators, setting political schedules, appointing civilians friendly to the military, and planning to rewrite the constitution. The Obama administration’s decision to ignore American law by continuing U.S. assistance, despite the military coup, is making the situation in Egypt worse.

RPaul Slams US Support of Egypt

Paul blasts NeoCons for backing military junta in Egypt with U.S. taxpayer funds.

Senator Paul: Egypt Shows Folly Of U.S. Intervention Abroad

As Senator Rand Paul noted, the problem “with constantly intervening in these troubled parts of the world is that there are often no clear good guys or bad guys. Today's ally can quickly become tomorrow's enemy. This should be a paramount and obvious concern, but in Washington it is almost always treated as an afterthought.” Obama, neo-cons in Congress, the 40 U.S. military personnel we just sent to Egypt as “peacekeepers,” and the average American taxpayer, must now face the reality that, despite the trillions invested, our American government has done a lousy job of picking winners and losers in foreign political contests.

Why Democracy Works In America, Not In Egypt

The American Revolution was not about creating a new kind of government. It was about defending a tradition of local government that had been in place in America for 156 years, since the signing of the Mayflower Compact — a tradition that included regular elections, the secret ballot, rule of law, and an understanding that the purpose of government is to secure our God-given rights to “life, liberty, and property.” There is no such tradition in Egypt.

Morsi Regime’s Twin: Obama Regime

Andrew B. Wilson, American Spectator

Both are corrupt, full of lunacy, and beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood.
