An international prosecutor, Fatou Bensuda, was advised Thursday by a panel at Hague that she should go ahead and investigate alleged war crimes committed by Americans in Afghanistan. It’s a shocking development. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the International Criminal Court panel’s ruling “a truly breathtaking action by an unaccountable political institution masquerading as a legal body.” It is, but what to do?

The author is wrong, the ICC was not a mistake. It was created with the intention of trying American and Israeli soldiers, even if neither country ever entered the agreement. That it took this long is somewhat surprising, but that it did not happen immediately is not. They hoped to establish the ICC as a credible "court of justice" before going after its true targets.

that ICC court is as bad as the demoKKKrats. Crooked. Only reason that court was formed was to accuse our soldiers of false accusations. Get our soldiers out of there. Don't allow this to happen.

When WW2 was winding down British Prime Minister Winston Churchill cautioned Joseph Stalin to consider the views of the Vatican. To this the Soviet leader responded “How many divisions does the Pope of Rome have?” How many divisions does the Hague have and what power do they have over the United States or Israel. They have no jurisdiction over the United States as we do not belong to their cabal This is a politically motivated move against soldiers of the United States, exactly the reason we do not belong to their confederacy.

All the U.N. wants to do is scam money from the US and pass resolutions condemning Israel. It's high time, no, way past high time, that these Lilliputian burearcrats lost their prime real estate in NYC and were relocated to a spot in the world where their expertise would be put to better use. I vote for Timbuktu, second choice Antarctica.

I seem to recall the UN Blue Helmets raping young girls in Africa while refusing to protect villagers from rebels. None of those UN troops were from the US. None were prosecuted as far as I know. Just covered up and disappeared. That renders any moral judgement from the UN as hypocritical to say the least. I have never thought the UN was a good idea to begin with and it has only gotten worse. Time to solve the homeless problem in NY by giving them the UN building.

Trump should definitely immediately suspend any and all monetary support by the US to the UN if they proceed with this rubbish. Further, the multibillion project to modernize the UN Building and complex (at mostly US cost) should be PUT ON HOLD while the US reevaluates the value of the continued presence of the UN Headquarters in New York, and the value of the continued membership of the US in the UN

What should be done about Senator Schumer’s threats to two members of the United States Supreme Court? Everyone agrees that the senator’s words were shocking. Mr. Schumer, while addressing an abortion rights rally in front of the Court, issued threats against two justices over a case on abortion. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Mr. Schumer boomed. The Baltimore Sun, in an editorial today, reckons that Mr. Schumer was merely echoing Justice Kavanaugh’s expression, during his confirmation hearing, of fear of the whirlwind the Democrats had sewed.

Mayor Bloomberg's decision to quit the presidential race ignited in us the urge to send him a check for $550 million.

Imagine, then, our chagrin when we discovered we couldn't quite cover the 550 million sponduluks. So we'll have to make do with simple sentiments.

There’s too much power vested in nine people in black robes. It only takes five justices, though, to make decisions that impact generations. And they’ve been Supremely wrong, repeatedly. In Dred Scott vs. Sanford, the Supreme Court ruled that slaves were not citizens and, therefore, not afforded constitutional rights. The Civil Rights Act of 1875, both written and passed solely by Republicans, was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. In Plessy v. Ferguson, despite the Reconstruction Amendments (13th, 14th and 15th), an arrogant Supreme Court affirmed codified racial discrimination in what should be called Separate and Unequal. I

South Carolina mom Debra Harrell worked at McDonald's. She couldn't afford day care for Regina, her 9-year-old daughter, so she took her to work. But Regina was bored at McDonald's. One day, she asked if she could just play in the neighborhood park instead. "I felt safe there," tells me in my new video, "because I was with my friends and their parents." "She had her cellphone, a pocketbook with money in it," says Debra. "She had everything she needed." Regina was happy. Debra was happy. But one parent asked Regina where her mom was, and then called the police. Officers went to McDonald's and arrested Debra. In jail, they berated her.

In doing so, an uncomfortable truth was shown: men are using abortion as a means to escape responsibility, and abortion is hurting women in the process.

It could go at least two ways. The best-case scenario for President Trump is that the virus doesn’t spread widely within America. Mr. Trump could then claim credit for stopping it. The stock market would bounce back. The episode could then draw public attention to the fact that for all of his critics’ efforts to depict him as somehow abnormal, Mr. Trump’s team is hardly a bunch of amateurs. Vice President Pence is leading efforts against the virus. As governor of Indiana, Mr.Pence had helped stop an HIV outbreak by authorizing a needle exchange program.

Is it possible President Donald Trump may have perfectly played the Iran conflict? He's been criticized for different and various reasons by people on the left and on the right. There's been a real concern that the president could get us into a war with Iran. It's early but it seems like Trump has effectively fired a warning shot at Iran to ramp down their continuing escalations -- without risking more American lives. If that's how it plays out, it will be hard not to credit the president for his handling of this matter. To those critical of the president's action to take out Qassem Soleimani,

After losing its top strategist, military commander and arch-terrorist, Qassem Suleimani, the Iranian theocracy is weighing responses. One, Iran can quiet down and cease military provocations. After attacking tankers off its coast, destroying an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia, shooting down a U.S. drone and being responsible for the killing and wounding of Americans in Iraq, Iran could now keep quiet. It might accept that its strategy of escalation has failed to lead to any quantifiable advantage. Trump did not prove a passive "Twitter tiger," as his critics mocked. Instead, he upped the stakes to Iran's disadvantage and existential danger.

The closer we get to the 2020 election, Democratic presidential candidates support more socialist proposals, and the more that we Venezuelan immigrants experience déjà vu. We’re all-too-familiar with the rhetoric Democrats have delivered over the course of their campaigns. All candidates endorse a transition to Medicare-for-All in one form or another, higher taxes on Americans, and a fresh wave of regulations and government-guaranteed “rights.” And just recently, Elizabeth Warren seemed to endorse government-provided housing. These are the kinds of measures they hope will bring about a paradise similar to the Left’s beloved Nordic countries.

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

George Soros and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into Chicago to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters. The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far. The PAC received its entire $2 million budget from a group created and funded by Soros.

March 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. In its first decade, ObamaCare has failed to solve many of the health care problems it was supposed to address. Even worse, it has compounded many of the issues it was meant to fix — the law of unintended consequences in action. First, then-candidate Barack Obama said his namesake act would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premiums by up to $2,500 a year.” In reality, the opposite has occurred. According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “premiums have doubled for individual health insurance plans since 2013,

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential candidacy ultimately failed because voters saw right through her. Warren’s career, as I have detailed, has been built on a series of cons dating back to her time as an academic peddling dubious medical bankruptcy research. In the run-up to her 2020 campaign, she attempted to lean into her false claim of Native American heritage. On the campaign trail, she told whoppers about having been pushed out of a teaching job for being visibly pregnant and told charter school advocates her kids went to public school (while hiding that she sent one of her children to private school). She was an unconvincing panderer, actually generating phrases
