It’s not unusual in the US for former intelligence officers and other high ranking officials to keep their top level security clearance after leaving office. But Trump has revoked the security clearance of Obama-era CIA director John Brennan.
The meek may inherit the Earth. But rarely, if ever, will you find the meek holding the office of president. The inherent, overbearing nature of the presidents of Turkey and the US is fuelling a fresh conflict. One that will likely continue until Turkey capitulates.

If you thought China was exerting undue influence in Australia, just imagine if Australia were placed only 180 kilometres off China’s mainland. That’s the situation faced by Taiwan…
The mainstream media loves to portray the US as a waning power. All empires crumble, as the saying goes. And the US is on its last legs. The latest US defence bill should put these doubts to rest.
Over the years they’ve provided motorcycles to the US military, outlaw biker gangs, and millions of weekend warriors across the globe. But now the iconic brand may have found its match in US President Donald Trump.
When you see a flock of birds in the park, you might think they’re more likely to leave a mess on the picnic table rather than clean it up. But that’s not what these French rooks are up to.
While US President Donald Trump appears able to shrug off the most provocative of tweets to foreign leaders, the Canadian government has found itself in hot water over its sensitive tweet to Saudi Arabia.

Arguments first began back in 2013, when Mr Wilson, a self-styled crypto anarchist, showed off the world’s first 3D-printed gun. Files showing how to replicate the process became immediately available on the Defense Distributed website, where it was downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

The United States has now asked the World Trade Organisation to let it impose sanctions on Indonesia after winning a trade dispute that it said cost US business up to $US350 million in 2017, a US filing published by the WTO shows.
The US’ message to North Korea under US President Donald Trump’s administration has been unambiguous. Dismantle your nuclear and missile programs. And verifiably get rid of any and all existing nuclear weapons. Until then, and not a day before, crippling…

The EU negotiators’ intentions appear clear. Make the divorce proceedings so onerous and time consuming, that eventually UK citizens will demand a second referendum.
Australia was once a world leader in commercial whaling. Indeed, the horrendous practice continued until just four decades ago. Today Australia leads the world in its vocal opposition of whaling.
Donald Trump is tweeting that his tariffs have successfully brought Beijing to the negotiating table. And they’re working even better than intended…
