Editor’s note: India has had a leader that has been very supportive of President Trump. This headline is very instructive.
  • Ed. note: Let us remember the warning all 10 living former defense secretaries wrote on January 3rd that the transition at the Defense Department is imperative “to be carried out fully, cooperatively and transparently.”
  • This was a full three days prior to the mob riot.
  • The political news headlines were relentless this past weekend, yet I posted several below for archival/historical purposes.
  • You will notice from the story titles that events are moving fast:
