No one was more surprised than President Joe Biden when South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol stood up during a recent state dinner and began singing “American Pie.”
Lebanon is said to be in the worst economic crisis since the 19th century. So 120 years after my great-grandfather left Lebanon for the United States, Lebanon is now roughly equivalent to what it was then.
During eight hearings, the committee has forever linked former president Donald Trump to the January 6, 2021 coup attempt at the Capitol.
In case there are any doubts, the world is at war. Questions remain about how protracted this war will be, how volatile it will become and whether or not it ends in a conflagration that destroys all of humanity.

U.S. foreign policy in many neighboring countries is directly creating migrant issues like the events documented in Del Rio.
The BBC reported it this way: “The AUKUS pact, which will also cover AI and other technologies, is one of the countries’ biggest defense partnerships in decades, analysts say. China has condemned the agreement as ‘extremely irresponsible.’”
The new rules amount to Biden saying “enough of the bull” as he steps up efforts to get stubborn Americans vaccinated. When I asked about mandatory vaccinations at the beginning of the Biden administration, press secretary Jen Psaki said the president was opposed to them.
