Obama’s 3rd term: Iraq is the Obamacare of foreign policy


We kick off this busy week by first discussing why Trump is not really remaking the judiciary, despite some reporting to the contrary. While all his picks have been solid, the courts are so irremediably broken that we need full judicial reform. We go through the latest example of judicial tyranny with sanctuary cities to demonstrate why no Republican president will be able to win the judiciary as it is currently constructed.

However, the most pressing issue is that Iraq has become the Obamacare of our foreign policy. We are doubling down on supporting the Iranian-backed government in Baghdad, even though its forces are now beheading Kurds in Kirkuk. For today’s show, we bring on Jordan Schachtel, CR’s national security correspondent, to discuss the insanely backwards strategy of supporting foe over friend in the Middle East.
