1. At Singapore Summit, North Korea Racked Up Wins

PAI advisor Chuck Downs, writing in The Hill, writes on the diplomatic wins by North Korea during the summit in Singapore. North Korea’s radical past and seemingly now-peaceful front makes the situation of peace between the US and North Korea subject to speculation. Classical conservatives around the globe and midwestern conservatives here at home understand the issues that can arise from allowing the North Korean regime to entertain the idea of peace while furthering their agenda. http://thehill.com/opinion/national-security/391815-at-singapore-summit-north-korea-racked-up-wins

2. Paul Revere and the roots of American Culture

Dr. Lamont Colucci comments on the role of Paul Revere during the American Revolution. The article, in the AMI Newswire, covers the necessity of heroic myths in American culture. Classical conservatives both in the Midwest and across the United States have a deep dedication to preserving American culture, which is seemingly opposed by those on the political left. Stories like that of Paul Revere, which were created in order to bring the country together against tyranny, are essential to American history and culture. PAI and its supporters strive to protect these stories and myths, in turn protecting the American way of life. https://aminewswire.org/stories/paul-revere-american-culture/

3. Understanding Putin’s Strategy

Robert Zubrin, for The Weekly Standard, reviews Russia’s dangerous and illiberal ideology which is gaining support throughout the world. Zubrin’s piece is in part an analysis of The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America by Timothy Snyder which examines how and why Russia’s unethical mindset is spreading and how those of the free world can stop it. Zubrin’s review and Snyders book both line up with the struggle that classical conservatives and midwestern conservatives are fighting today. The followers of PAI as well as those working for the Institute stand ready to fight off the ideology being spread by Russia, being the last best hope for the world. https://www.weeklystandard.com/robert-zubrin/understanding-putins-strategy

4. Comey ‘Deviated’ from FBI Procedure During Clinton Probe

Jack Crowe, at The National Review, comments on former FBI director James Comey and his deviation from proper operational procedure during the investigation on Hillary Clinton. The new developments come as negative additions to Comey’s handling of the investigation which has already been seemingly covered in political bias. Classical conservatives hold true to the idea that no one is above the law, regardless of position. The politicization of intelligence by Comey’s FBI shows a significant issue with the current justice system, showing that political affiliation can prevent lawful justice. Midwestern conservatives and PAI strive to maintain non-partisan intelligence and justice communities, Comey’s handling of the Hillary investigation counter these beliefs. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/ig-report-comey-deviated-from-fbi-procedure-during-clinton-probe/

5. Kaspersky Lab Cut Off from U.S. Contractors

Andrew Blake, of The Washington Times, evaluates the recently published rules for government purchases from The Russian tech company Kaspersky Labs. Kaspersky, having ties with the Russian government, causes concern for espionage and spying which can come through different manipulations of the hardware and software sold by the company. The banning of government purchases from Kaspersky is a step in protecting both current and future government assets. Kaspersky Labs is just the most recent in a long list of Russian companies which aim to exploit nations for Russian expansionism. This situation is yet another example of the fight by classical and midwestern conservatives against and expansive and exploitative enemy. National security secrets are essential to the United States legitimacy in the world and PAI supports the recent efforts to counter Russian spying.
