A few weeks after the FBI searched Donald Trump's residence at his Palm Beach resort, Fox News host Steve Doocy, a longtime ally of the former president, posed a question that remains unanswered. "Why did he have all that secret stuff at Mar-a-Lago?" Doocy wondered during an interview with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. Trump's response—that the "secret stuff" was not really secret because he declassified it before he left office—is both implausible and, in the context of the potential crimes that the FBI is investigating, legally irrelevant. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit underlined both points…

Russia Confirms 'Sporadic' Contacts With US On Nuclear Weapons Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday that the US and Russia have had “sporadic” contact over the issue of nuclear arms as tensions are soaring between the world’s largest nuclear-armed powers.

Iran has illicitly sold China $38 billion worth of oil since President Joe Biden took office and relaxed sanctions enforcement on Tehran. Revenue from the Chinese has kept Iran's hardline regime afloat as it grapples with the largest outbreak of nationwide protests in years. China "has proven to be the savior of Tehran by continuing to import millions of barrels of oil every single day," according to newly released figures calculated by United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), an advocacy group that tracks Iran’s illicit oil trade. "Chinese imports have likely even exceeded the purchases made when the trade was not…

The heads of state and government from most of the UN’s 193 member states gathered last week at the organization’s famous New York City building to attend the 77th UN General Assembly. One of the attendees, whose presence was questionable and was objected to, was the ultraconservative President Ebrahim Raisi of Iran. Ironically, he was sanctioned by Washington in 2019 over his complicity in numerous human rights violations. His crimes included a reported involvement in the mass execution of thousands of Iranian political prisoners in 1988. His arrival in New York raised several inquiries and concerns, including questions about who…
