    If Trump Implodes, Republicans Have A Silver Lining In Mike Pence

    WASHINGTON ―For Republicans on Capitol Hill, Vice President Mike Pence was supposed to be the calm, steadying hand in the White House, the seasoned former Indiana governor and congressman who would be their ears and mouth in the neophyte Trump administration.Then Pence went on national television last month, before Donald Trump was even sworn in,...

When “little green men” invaded Crimea in early 2014, they left a data trail that went largely unnoticed by the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). Distracted by a large Russian exercise to the west, the IC did not connect the digital dots that indicated the impending invasion. In...

    Europe Faces the Demolition Man

    In his “We Shall Fight Them on the Beaches” speech to the House of Commons in June 1940, Winston Churchill orated: “The New World, with all its power and might,” would “step forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”America did step forth to save Europe—and again, when Stalin tried to bag the Western half.

    History: “Said To” Have Happened

    I haven’t seen Bitter Harvest, the new film made about the Holodomor, the man-made famine that transformed Ukraine from bread basket to mass grave, so I have absolutely no view on its artistic merit. It may be terrible (the reviews I have read have not been kind)andnbsp;but this from Michael O’Sullivan’s review in the Washington...

    Trump’s Ratings Slump in Russia

    Donald Trump’s ratings in Russia have slumped. Or, better put, they have been artificially lowered, after the Kremlin ordered state-controlled TV channels to avoid excessive mentions of the 45th American President. As a result, Russian TV now talks about Trump four times less then before.Earlier this month, citing three sources familiar...

    Past, Present Collide on Set of ‘Bitter Harvest’

    “I wanted something that looked like a fairy tale,” says German-born Canadian filmmaker George Mendeluk, describing what compelled him to tackle one of the darkest chapters in Ukrainian-Russian relations. Opening with a picturesque scene of a Ukrainian village in the 1930s, the historical juxtaposition is stark: Bitter Harvest, a historical drama...

    Past, Present Collide on Set of ‘Bitter Harvest’

    “Bitter Harvest” is a historical drama that weaves a love story around the Holodomor — a devastating famine in Ukraine that killed millions in the 1930s when the country was part of the Soviet Union.

    There’s More to the Michael Cohen Story

    I was intrigued to learn a few days ago that President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, once founded an ethanol business in Ukraine. It’s referred to as a family business. So presumably he set it up with relatives of his wife, who is Ukrainian. This isn’t any big scoop I uncovered with my masterly reporting skills....
