Mike Miller, Independent Journal Review

President Donald Trump's cruise missile attack against a Syrian airbase and subsequent “MOAB” strike on an ISIS stronghold have garnered general bipartisan support.

Except from, among others, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Following a town hall meeting with constituents in Salem, Massachusetts, on Thursday, reporters asked the visibly distraught senator to respond to the Massive Ordnance Air Blast — more fondly referred to as the “mother of all bombs.”

Shaking her head, Warren pleaded: “As is the case with every part of Trump's foreign policy, we're all trying to understand. What is the strategy?”

When a reporter asked if she thought the MOAB strike was also a message to North Korea — as others have suggested, including former President Barack Obama's Deputy Secretary of State, Tony Blinken — Warren shook her head in even more “disbelief” and decried: “If we can't figure out what it means, it's sort of hard to make that a message.”

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
