Picking losers is no way to win, Mr. Majority Leader

By Robert Romano “Our primary approach will be to support our incumbents and in open seats to seek to help nominate people who can actually win in November. That’s my approach.

As North Korea threatens Guam again, now what?

By Robert Romano Stability is an illusion. So is power. What deters a nuclear first strike against the U.S. is the perceived response. More generally, nuclear powers don’t go after one another because the likely consequence is nuclear annihilation on all sides. Once one or two nukes go off, the likelihood that more go off rises exponentially, so nobody does […]

If Trump decertifies the Iran nuclear deal, he doesn’t need Congress to reinstate the sanctions, he can do it himself

By Robert Romano If President Donald Trump decertifies the Iran nuclear deal under law because, in his determination, quoting the law, “suspension of sanctions related to Iran” is no longer “appropriate and proportionate to the specific and verifiable measures taken by Iran with respect to terminating its illicit nuclear program; and… vital to the national security interests of the United […]

Why Trump may be right about Puerto Rico’s $72 billion debt

By Robert Romano “We are going to work something out. We have to look at their whole debt structure. They owe a lot of money to your friends on Wall Street. We’re going to have to wipe that out. That’s going to have to be — you know, you can say goodbye to that. I don’t know if it’s Goldman […]

Initially, the FBI has said so far it has not found any evidence to validate the claim. So, either Islamic State really connected with Paddock and inspired his cold-blooded […]

Did Russia hack the elections or not? California and Wisconsin say no.

By Robert Romano We’re still looking for Boris and Natasha. First, it was reports that Wisconsin’s voter registration systems had not been breached by Russian hackers, and now California has a similar story. On Wisconsin, per the Associated Press, “The state was initially told that hackers had attempted to scan its internet-connected election infrastructure, likely seeking specific vulnerabilities to access […]
