“In all these ways and more, America in 2021 is the country that liberals in the Bush era wished they lived in: more liberal and permissive across...”
Yes, we're living the liberal's vision for America. There's no denying that the United States is more diverse, less inhibited, more permissive, more socially aware and connected, less parochial, and more focused on humanist hegemony than the country was a mere 20 years ago. So, why the liberal...
Biden claims the US is 'not at war,' despite combat deployments to Iraq and Syria, and counter-terror missions in Africa
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 15 Comments • 1 Like • one month ago
“Biden's claims that the US is no longer war is belied by continued American deployments to the Middle East and counter-terrorism missions in Africa.”
Joe Biden definitely wants to turn the page on Afghanistan. But Biden's claim that United States is not at war is too nuanced to be honest. Biden doesn't want us to read the footnotes at the bottom of that page. We still have as many troops deployed to Iraq as we had in Afghanistan. And the...

“White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday during a briefing that President Biden's administration is "not going to allow" charter...”
Now border security is important? We've been allowing hundreds of thousands of unvetted migrants across our southern border for years. But charter flights of hundreds of unvetted Afghans landing on military bases pose too great a risk? The Biden administration just doesn't want another...
Democrats stare down nightmare September

“Democrats are staring down a nightmare September, a month jam-packed with deadlines and bruising fights over their top priorities.”
Democrats and the unbiased liberal media are going to be turning up that old Maytag to ultra-high spin. It's one Democrat disaster after another. And Democrats did all of this to themselves. Obviously there hasn't been any Democrat plan from the git go. With the Afghanistan debacle,...
Afghanistan: Russia faces its own risks and uncertainty

“Regional instability, refugee flows, extremism, and zero appetite for warfare temper Russia's stance on Afghanistan.”
While everyone is focusing attention on China, they're ignoring the other major player with an interest in Afghanistan. Russia has a vital interest in maintaining stability in Central Asia. That's why Russia had a military presence in Afghanistan during the 1980s. Afghanistan poses a threat...

“GM is temporarily shutting down nine of its North American factories as the auto industry continues to feel the effects of the global semiconductor...”
So where's the friggin' robots? Are we supposed to believe that AI controlled robotic automation won't function in the United States? Chip manufacturing is highly automated. Producing electronic chips ain't a Milton Friedman buzzkill using shovels instead of bulldozers. There isn't a need...

“A day after U.S. troops left, the president called the mission to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies an "extraordinary success" and forcefully...”
So, at the end of a 20 year war the President addresses the nation in the middle of the day when most Americans won't take notice. Even Lyndon Johnson wasn't that chickenshit. The end of the war in Afghanistan is not the issue. Joe Biden is defending something that needs no defense. Joe...
Afghanistan blame game
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 1 Comments • 2 Likes • 2 months ago
“Washington is always on the lookout for a fall guy.”
The biggest problem that Joe Biden is addressing, at the moment, is that the political narrative can't get ahead of events on the ground. Any political spin is already obsolete before it can be released because of the next photo and breathless angst of news reporters on the ground. No doubt...
Witch Hunt: Blame the Unvaccinated

“Those on the left end of the political spectrum oppose the commercial science and only accept science that aligns with their beliefs.”
The political witch hunt is an American tradition. Sometimes the witch hunt really does blame the appropriate people for the appropriate thing. Most often the political witch hunt is used to hide the sins of those engaged in the witch hunt. Is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. a scion of the right wing?...
Analysis: What the Census results tell us about the future US electorate

“The United States is a country that is diversifying and getting older, as the population continues to shift more into metropolitan areas.”
If the United States is diversifying then why is the country's politics controlled by only two political parties dominated by non-Hispanic whites? The analysis presented by CNN is rather perplexing. You'd think new political parties would emerge as the minority population increases and the...
