A/O Global Intelligence Weekly: Trump Tax Cuts Producing Solid Results
The U.S. Commerce Department reported that the U.S economy grew in the second quarter at a rate of 3.2%! This follows years of stagnant growth in the United States after the Great Recession and the anemic growth during the Obama administration -- Read entire newsletter here:

Authoritarian Thought Control in the 21st Century
The United States and its allies are now emerging from a complete focus on the “War on Terror”, into a realization that we have entered into a new “Great Power conflict”.   In the last decade, Russia and China have embarked on policies of dominance in their regions. Russia appears to be seeking great power global status, even though its small economy will make those ambitions hard to sustain. Read more on this topic and the entire newsletter is at this link:​

The Imperative of Modernization in the Age of the Unthinkable
by Guest Columnist Dr. Lani Kass

Offense and defense are inherent in the very nature of war--intrinsic to any human interaction.  They constitute the essential duality that defines any contest. Today's adversaries are undeterred by sheer military might. We need a new paradigm, a fresh vocabulary, and agile approaches. Read Dr. Kass' column and the entire newsletter is at this link:

Why Free College Isn't Free.....
While I am certain this will come as no shock to faithful AO/FCF readers, there is no such thing as free college.

The Socialist Agenda of Failure
Over the last 10 years, American Opportunity/Free Congress Foundation has championed the necessity of a growing economy. During the Obama administration, we decried the policy of “no growth” and spoke out on the necessity of serious and lasting tax reform to spur American economic growth. Read the full newsletter here at this link:

American Economy Surges; Pompeo Charts New Course
Earlier, the government issued its monthly jobs report.  Commentators on the far left were practically beside themselves, expecting and hoping for a jobs report that showed the American economy was slowing to a crawl thanks to a government shutdown.  Read entire newsletter here:

Nationalism and Internationalism In America by Dr. Henry Nau
Nationalism is growing everywhere. Trump is perhaps the most nationalist U.S. president since Andrew Jackson. But American nationalism is not traditional nationalism.  Read the full newsletter here:

A/O Global Intelligence Weekly: Remembering The End Of The Soviet Empire by Norm Kass
As the calendar year draws to a close, one may reflect upon a now fading historical occurrence that once garnered much media attention: Resolution 142-N issued in Moscow by the Supreme Soviet on December 26, 1991 announcing that the Soviet Union ceased to exist.  Read entire newsletter here:

A/O Global Intelligence Weekly: President Bush Passes Away At Age 94; Authoritarianism On The Move
On Nov. 30, 2018 we heard about the passing of former President George H.W. Bush in Houston, Texas.  His love and devotion to his wife Barbara, who passed away April 17, 2018 at the age of 92, is perhaps the one relationship that exemplified his character over 73 long years.  Bush will be remembered for his leadership as envoy to China, his commitment to improving childhood literacy, and navigating the decline of the Soviet Union.

The Return of the Balance of Power​ (Nov. 9, 2018)
Professor Henry Nau -- a senior fellow here at American Opportunity/Free Congress Foundation -- has written a very worthy article in the pages of National Interest for their Nov/Dec edition, one that emphasizes the wisdom of conservative internationalism in a perilous world.

Pittsburgh and the War on Terrorism (Nov. 2, 2018)
First and foremost, the entire staff and fellows of American Opportunity/Free Congress Foundation express our anger toward the anti-Semitic attack on worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue this past Saturday.  We express our deepest sympathy and solidarity to the families of the victims -- good people, true to their faith, and totally innocent of any affront to anyone anywhere.  Read the entire statement and newsletter at this link:

Cyber Warfare Remains An Existential Threat To The West (October 25, 2018) by Charles Wagner
To many Americans, the threat of cyber-attacks and discussions of cyber security is limited to concerns of identity theft, Wikileaks intelligence releases, compromised credit card information, and the kind of stuff that only large corporations need to worry about to protect their intellectual property.  Read the entire essay and latest A/O newsletter here....Cyber Warfare Remains An Existential Threat To The West

China Monitors U.S. Citizens Through Technology​ (September 14, 2018) by Judy T. Kushner
People brought up in this country have no idea what it is like to live under a totalitarian government.  I remember clearly growing up during China's Cultural Revolution; how my family members were harassed and how, at age three, I had to accompany my German-educated grandfather to what was called "public shaming," where citizens were verbally and physically abused in the public square.

The Meaning of 9/11 by Jim Gilmore (September 11, 2018)
In the life of the United States, there are dates marking events that change the course and direction of our country.  One thinks of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, the firing on Fort Sumter, the surrender at Appomattox, and the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.  September 11, 2001 is one of those days.
The Electoral College and Why It Matters (Aug. 31, 2018)
William H. Hurd is an American Opportunity board member and a known quantity in Virginia for his erudition and a steady hand.  Having served as an elector in 1992, Mr. Hurd's insights on the value and the traditions of the Electoral College are well worth considering.  What follows is a December 3rd, 2016 op-ed defending the institution the day before the electors went to vote on the next President of the United States.
