Weekly Wrap-Up

North Korea is by far this week’s biggest news story. Fox News has ongoing coverage here. Ralph Peters has a plan for taking out North Korea’s nukes, while Rich Lowry says the Trump Administration needs to pick a strategy and stick to it.

How worried are you over the possibility of a conflict between the U.S. and North Korea? That’s the first of three questions in our new Weekly Poll focused on the North Korea situation.

For the second Weekly Poll question, I’ve collected some of my personal thoughts on the matter, on everything from President Trump’s leadership to the power of our military to the wonderful absence of Hillary Clinton in this situation. They’re laid out for you in question #2 – you can select the statement you agree with the most. I look forward to seeing what you think.

Investor’s Business Daily puts it best: “Since at least the early 1990s, presidents have kicked the nuclear can way down the road, and now we're running out of road. Trump inherited this mess. Now he's dealing with it.” 

Even the biased media can’t deny that previous presidents dropped the ball on North Korea – the country’s path to becoming a major threat started with a Clinton-Era deal.

Liberals are shocked at any suggestion that President Obama’s failures might have led us to the current North Korea situation, but of course they’re perfectly okay with blaming President George W. Bush.

And speaking of Obama – his failures are many, from North Korea to Iran to Cuba

Rush Limbaugh has a good overview of how we got to the situation that President Trump and our nation now face together.

Which recent U.S. President do you believe bears the most responsibility for North Korea’s rise to power? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll.

This isn’t what you want to read as an international threat takes center stage.

In other news this week, we saw media bias and more media bias

Larry Horist reminds us that voter fraud is real – an alarming problem with major elections coming up this year and next.

In this year’s NYC mayoral campaign, Nicole Malliotakis continues to take the fight to Bill de Blasio.

And what seems to be a hateful act has inspired kindness and generosity towards New York’s finest and their hard work.

On that note, have a great weekend!
