June 4, 2013—Tilting to Northeast Asia

On the 24th anniversary of Tiananmen Square and the eve of President Obama’s meeting with China’s President Xi Jiaping, it is important that the “powers that be” realize that military-to-military exchanges with China are no substitute for underwriting a needed “Peace through Strength” policy in Northeast Asia with serious defense programs second to none.

May 28, 2013 – Potpourri: Countering an Existential Threat To All We Hold Dear

Supporters have urged High Frontier to publish a summary report of its important messages during the past six months.

Perhaps these the well-known lines from Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, when Hamlet contemplates life and death—and suicide, also apply when considering today’s existential threat to America and all of Western Civilization posed by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. Shall America, like Hamlet, experience an untimely death? Or shall we avert a possible end to all we hold dear? Read Full Story

May 1, 2013 – Mayday, Mayday: Oh, for Another Churchill!

America’s rude Tax Day wakeup call in Boston shows we need informed and engaged leadership to deal effectively with the Global Jihad that poses an existential threat to America—and all of Western Civilization. We again need leaders who not only understand, but who will speak the uncomfortable truths we don’t wish to hear and mobilize free peoples to stand firm during this perilous time. In short, we need a modern Winston Churchill. Read Full Story
