Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan steps down to avoid “painful” family situation

WASHINGTON - After months of unexplained delays, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan stepped down Tuesday before his formal nomination ever went to the Senate, citing a “painful” family situation that would hurt his children and reopen “wounds we have worked years to heal.” President Donald Trump announced Shanahan’s departure in a tweet, and said that Army Secretary Mark Esper would be the new acting Pentagon chief. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, who has done a wonderful job, has decided not to go forward with his confirmation process so that he can devote more time

The 2020 Twenty — Bill Weld

This is IJR's third segment of The 2020 Twenty. We're asking every 2020 presidential candidate 20 questions on their plans, policies, outlook, and background as well as some lighter ones to help our readers get to know the people and their personalities as they compete to run the country.

Hmm: Trump and Xi to have “extended meeting” at G-20; Xinhua: Trump requested the call

Will the trade war between the US and China come to an end next week? Donald Trump tweeted out this morning that a planned meeting at the upcoming G-20 summit next week will become an "extended meeting." His description of preparations between then and now offered a strong hint of an agreement in the works: Had a very good telephone conversation with President Xi of China. We will be having an extended meeting next week at the G-20 in Japan. Our respective teams will begin talks prior to our meeting. — Donald J.

Bolton: China Continuing Cyberattacks on Government, Private Networks

China is continuing cyberattacks against government and private sector networks aimed at obtaining intellectual property to support China's military buildup and economic modernization, White House National Security Adviser John Bolton says. Bolton said that as a result, the United States is going on the attack against Chinese and other foreign hackers using new authorities outlined in a recently signed presidential memorandum.

U.S. Sanctions: Economic Sabotage that is Deadly, Illegal and Ineffective

Illustration by Nathaniel St. Clair While the mystery of who is responsible for sabotaging the two tankers in the Gulf of Oman remains unsolved, it is clear that the Trump administration has been sabotaging Iranian oil shipments since May 2, when it announced its intention to “ bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue. ” The move was aimed at China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey, all nations that purchase Iranian oil and now face U.S. threats if they continue to do so.

U.S. sending more troops to Middle East as Iran tensions mount

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon on Monday ordered another 1,000 American troops to the Middle East, moving to bolster security in a region reeling from hostile attacks on commercial ships that the U.S. has blamed on Iran. Officials said the deployment includes security forces and troops for additional surveillance and intelligence gathering in the region. And while the number is small, it represents an escalation of U.S. military might aimed at deterring Iran and calming allies worried that transit through key shipping lanes could be in jeopardy.

Democracy Faces a Global Crisis

Photograph Source: Presidenza della Repubblica If you’re a supporter of Donald Trump — or Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil or Matteo Salvini in Italy — you probably think that democracy has never been in better health. Recent elections in these countries didn’t just serve to rotate the elite from the conventional parties. Voters went to the polls and elected outsiders who promised to transform their political systems. That demonstrates that the system, that democracy itself, is not rigged in favor of the “deep state” or the Bilderberg global elite — or the plain vanilla leaders of the center left a

When the two met again in February, the goal didn"t seem to move any closer to reality. Now White House national security adviser John Bolton says a third meeting is possible, but the ball is in Pyongyang"s court.

Trump blames Iran for tanker attacks but calls for talks

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump has blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, but he also held out hope that implicit U.S. threats to use force will yield talks with the Islamic Republic as the Pentagon considers beefing up defenses in the Persian Gulf area. A day after explosions blew holes in two oil tankers just outside Iran’s territorial waters, rattling international oil markets, the administration seemed caught between pressure to punish Iran and reassure Washington’s Gulf Arab allies without drawing the U.S. closer to war. “Iran did it,” Trump s
