Immigration to the U.S. Dropped an Insane 92%

Immigration to the U.S. Dropped an Insane 92%

The United States has welcomed  legal immigrants to the United States since its founding. But at no time since it has maintained records has the country witnessed as fast a decline in legal immigration as it has seen in the second half of fiscal year 2020 (which finished September 30). Overall, the second half of FY 2020 saw 92 percent fewer immigrants from abroad than the first half, which was larger than any annual decline in the history of the United States. Figure 1 shows the monthly immigrant visa issuances under the Trump administration since March 2017.

Turkey’s Erdogan Is Fueling Aggression Against Armenia

Turkey’s Erdogan Is Fueling Aggression Against Armenia

The spiral of deadly violence in the South Caucasus is intensifying. While conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenians has simmered for at least the past thirty years, recent violence escalated when Azerbaijani forces attacked Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnic Armenian enclave in the southwest of Azerbaijan, on September 27. The current war is more deadly and intractable because of Turkey’s extensive involvement.Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is both directly stoking violence and undermining diplomacy aimed at achieving a ceasefire. Turkey has fueled conflict since 1993 when it imposed a ....

The Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu Alliance: Simply Bad News

The Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu Alliance: Simply Bad News

The political careers of President Donald Trump and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu have become increasingly linked. The linkage goes well beyond the parallel personal interests they have in such things as the hyping of recent diplomatic developments involving Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. It extends to a similarity of political methods that over the long term works to the detriment of both Americans and Israelis. The this week of a White House signing ceremony replete with flags and trumpet flourishes helps both leaders claim credit with their domestic audiences for what...

Could Saudi Arabia And The UAE Throw The Election To Donald Trump?

Could Saudi Arabia And The UAE Throw The Election To Donald Trump?

Foreign countries’ interference in U.S. politics is almost as old as the nation itself. In the election of 1796, America’s first truly competitive presidential race, the English and French attempted to intervene, with England favoring John Adams and France viewing Thomas Jefferson as more sympathetic to the ideals of the French Revolution. 224 years later, the same concerns are present; there are ominous signs that Washington’s close Arab partners might interfere in the 2020 presidential election to boost President Donald Trump’s shot at a second term.The national media has focused heavily...

The most inconvenient fact in the Report is one Americans don’t want to hear—and even when they read it, refuse to accept: has now displaced the U.S. to become the largest economy in the world. Measured by the more refined yardstick that both the IMF and CIA now judge to be the single best metric for comparing national economies, the IMF Report shows that is one-sixth larger than America’s ($24.2 trillion versus the U.S.’s $20.8 trillion).Despite this unambiguous statement from the two...

How Americans Get Tricked Into Participating in Disinformation Campaigns

—manipulating information is something in which the Kremlin is well-versed. The concern only grows for the West’s ability to defend itself against cyber and psychological warfare, particularly when people’s dependence on communication technology is at an all-time high due to the pandemic.   . But to legitimately combat Russian disinformation, people first must learn about its meaning and history, which then allows for additional, grassroots methods to use against disinformation.   and are doing more than at the dinner table, or even across the political aisle.

Both Armenia and Azerbaijan have  each other of violating a ceasefire deal brokered by Russia.

Donald Trump Has Set a Debate Trap for Joe Biden

Donald Trump Has Set a Debate Trap for Joe Biden

Joe Biden’s running debate with President Donald Trump about the number and format of the forthcoming presidential debates is ignoring that Biden has a lot to lose in the debates, and little to gain. This is true for all candidates who have a major lead in the polls, and especially for ones who are as gaffe-prone as Biden. In previous elections, major gaffes have cost candidates. Richard Nixon’s election prospects against John F. Kennedy were greatly diminished following the debate, in which he did not well handle Kennedy’s statements about a missile gap, and when he was seen sweating a...

Iran Successfully Sank Its Fake Aircraft Carrier (But Where It Sank Is a Problem)

Iran Successfully Sank Its Fake Aircraft Carrier (But Where It Sank Is a Problem)

—but the carrier sank in the wrong place. Intended as a propaganda stunt to prove that the IRGC-N possessed the capability to sink a real carrier, the recent drill has become somewhat of a laughable show of military ineptitude.   it is really just built on an elaborate target barge, and more importantly, it is completely incapable of landing or recovering aircraft. The faux carrier—based loosely on the U.S. Navy’s Nimitz-class—was previously “sunk” in February 2015 “Great Prophet IX” exercises, which took place near the Iranian naval base at Bandar Abbas.

Why America Decided Against Winning The Vietnam War

Why America Decided Against Winning The Vietnam War

Here's What You Need To Remember: Ho Chi Minh and his successors may have been, as Moyar points out, “doctrinaire Communists,” but Vietnam itself invaded another communist state in 1977, and went to war with one of its erstwhile patrons in 1979. The U.S. “loss” of Southeast Asia had no noticeable effect on the broader strategic balance between Moscow and Washington, a conclusion to which the Europeans had come at some point in the late 1960s.Mark Moyar, the scholar of U.S. foreign and military policy, recently had  an older argument on the viability of the Vietnam War. Moyar argues that the...

This has included indictments of PLA officers, broad condemnations of Chinese spying, and targeted reprisals against some Chinese firms. But given the extensive commercial contacts between China and the United States, stopping the flow of technology is virtually impossible.As the People’s Republic of China (PRC) emerged from war and revolution in 1949, it became apparent that the Chinese economy lacked the capacity to compete with the...
