The Democrats Are Our Enemies

30 09 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Lots of us began as Democrats, but they have veered so far to the Left as to be unrecognizable.  And yes, they are “evil” but smart, while the Republicans are “Neanderthals” and dumb for the most part.[2]

Perhaps our disillusionment began with John F. Kennedy, who was a total fraud.[3]  It was followed by Lyndon Johnson who escalated JFK’s Vietnam War beyond all reason, and was responsible for the senseless deaths of our friends and fellow Americans.  Also, LBJ’s “Great Society” programs destroyed black families and consigned them to economic servitude.

This was followed by the Clintons, who smiled but were evil beyond belief.[4]  Then came Barack Obama, the consummate racist who smiled too, all the while he was sowing the seeds of racial divisiveness that have been fostering unfettered crime, and ripping our great nation apart.[5]

Then came Obama’s “stooge” Joe Biden, whose mental capacities have been declining before the eyes of the world—which has fueled the thirst of our principal enemies, China and Russia, and brought us to the brink of the unthinkable World War III.[6]  And Biden has given us Kamala Harris, who is waiting in the wings for him to croak, but can’t seem to find our border with Mexico.[7]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—discusses where we are today as Americans, in an article entitled “Is ‘Our Democracy’ Failing Our Country?”

Asked, “What is an American?” many would answer, “An American is a citizen of the United States.”

Yet, at the First Continental Congress in 1774, 15 years before the U.S. became a nation of 13 states, Patrick Henry rose to proclaim that, “British oppression has effaced the boundaries of the several colonies; the distinctions between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers, and New Englanders are no more. I am not a Virginian, but an American.”

Henry was saying — more than a dozen years before our constitutional republic was established — that America already existed as a nation, and he was her loyal son.

In an 1815 letter to Thomas Jefferson, long after both men had served as president, John Adams wrote:

“As to the history of the Revolution, my Ideas may be peculiar, perhaps Singular. What do We mean by the Revolution? The War? That was no part of the Revolution. It was only an Effect and Consequence of it. The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen Years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington.”

Adams was saying that America was conceived and, as an embryonic nation, grew within the hearts of the peoples of the 13 colonies, two to three decades before the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

In short, our country came to be before our republic came to be, and long before what we today call “our democracy” came to be. A country is different from, and more than, the political system that it adopts.

France was France all through the Bourbon dynasty, the Revolution of 1789, the creation of the First Republic, the Reign of Terror, Napoleon’s First Empire and the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy — all the way to the creation of the Fifth Republic by President Charles de Gaulle.

And beneath the carapace of the USSR, the heart of Mother Russia continued to beat. Rightly, during the Cold War, we regarded Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria as “captive nations” and captive peoples.

The point: Neither the regime nor the political system imposed, nor some abstract idea, is the country that predates them and has first claim upon the loyalty of its sons and daughters.

In his famous toast, American naval hero Stephen Decatur declared: “Our country! … May she always be in the right; but our country, right or wrong!”

The crisis today for those who incessantly proclaim, “Our democracy is in danger,” is that millions of patriots are coming to see our incumbent regime, “our democracy,” as faithless and failing in its foremost duty — to protect and defend our country and countrymen from enemies foreign and domestic.

Forced constantly by the establishment to choose between them, patriotic Americans may one day come to choose, as did their fathers, the country they love over the crown that rules them.

Consider.

The Biden regime that currently rules us has allowed 3 million migrants to invade our country in two years. These illegals continue to break our laws and cross our border at a rate of 250,000 a month.

Among them are terrorists, robbers, rapists, murderers, cartelists and child molesters. The Biden regime has abdicated its duty to halt the invasion that is changing the ethnic, racial, religious, social and political character and composition of our American family without the consent of the American people, into whose national home these intruders are breaking with impunity.

President Joe Biden is assuring that the future of the nation will be determined by millions of people who have in common only that they broke our laws to get into our country. Vice President Kamala Harris smugly dismisses demands to address the crisis by saying America’s southern border is “secure.”

With this invasion has come a flood of the narcotic fentanyl, which last year took the lives of 100,000 Americans, a number equal to all the U.S. war dead in years of fighting in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Under the Biden party’s policy of softness on crime and indulgence of the criminal class, assaults, robberies, carjackings and “mass shootings,” where four victims are killed or wounded in each episode, have surged in U.S. cities.

With America’s currency and economy in his custody, Biden has, in 18 months, run up inflation, that cancer of America’s currency, to 8%, run up the national debt to where it far exceeds the gross national product, and crashed the stock market, wiping out trillions in wealth.

“The pandemic is over,” Biden told “60 Minutes” in September, a month when more than 400 Americans were dying of COVID-19 every day, a death rate higher than World War II and equal to the bloodiest war in U.S. history, the Civil War of 1861-1865.

The custodians of “our democracy” are failing in the most fundamental of duties of any political system — to protect and defend the people. No failed regime can justify its permanence by claiming some inherent superiority.[8]

We are at potentially perilous crossroads.  The direction we turn will determine whether we have a viable country to pass on to our inheritors in the future.

Are The Marine Corps And Camp Lejeune Being Maligned?

27 09 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Some of us served with the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and other military services, which defend each of us against our enemies.  There is a healthy rivalry or competition between our services, like there is between sporting teams and the cities that host them.  But we come together and “circle the wagons” when one is maligned.

Clearly, the reputations of both the Corps and its major training facility Camp Lejeune have been maligned.  The questions become whether it is justified; and what is prompting the surge of advertisements on American television stations now, by the vultures in our legal profession?

They contend that water contamination at Camp Lejeune decades ago has led to a broad range of health hazards; and that those who have been injured may be entitled to substantial compensation.  Congress acted and Joe Biden signed the law into effect; and the floodgates of claims may have been opened wide.[2]  Reparations for slavery may be the next payola if Biden and his Democrats win in November.

Twitter Engages In Racist Censorship, And Is Un-American

18 09 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Twitter—based in the uber-Leftist and crime-ridden San Francisco—has suspended the accounts of those who tell the truth about Oprah, Meghan Markle and others.  This constitutes racism.

Oprah has admitted that she was a prostitute.[2].  By the same token, the UK’s Prince Philip warned about marrying Meghan Markle.[3]

For decades, Hollywood’s “casting couch” has been the way that young, aspiring actresses have risen in Tinseltown.  The sleazebag Harvey Weinstein used it to the nth degree.  Jeffrey Epstein had his on the East Coast and elsewhere.

Certainly, Meghan Markle is a racist ho, who has used the casting couch to reach the British Monarchy, which Prince Philip warned about.  But Twitter wants to whitewash both Oprah and her.

Having grown up in Hollywood—and having two friends who just retired at the very top of Hollywood’s two biggest studios—and having worked in the U.S. Senate where I saw young women prostitute themselves and be used and abused like groupies at rock concerts, Twitter would be engaging in wholesale and blatant racist censorship by suspending the account of anyone who tells the truth.

Twitter and Facebook are part of “Fake News,” which may have skewed the 2020 election results by “burying” the Hunter Biden laptop story, and other potentially-damaging disclosures about the Biden family’s criminal enterprises.

Also, they lionized the thug George Floyd, and championed “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups, whose thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels burned our cities, killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police, and destroyed black and other businesses.

By engaging in the wholesale distortion of the truth, and the insidious burying of history, such disseminators of “Fake News” have fanned the flames of racism against our police and other Americans. The results are evident today in unchecked crime and lawlessness, unsafe cities, and the deterioration of our great nation and the lives of millions of Americans.

Lastly, will Elon Musk clean out the woke worms at Twitter if he takes over?  Time will tell.  If he doesn’t, Twitter should be shut down permanently.  It engages in the denial of free speech, which is a fundamental right of all Americans.

Also, like the rest of “Fake News,” it attempts to shut down and/or destroy those who support our great President Donald Trump, at a time when our enemies—China and Russia—are determined to weaken or destroy us.

The American Left And Its Eco-Nazis Are Certifiably Crazy

28 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Man-made “global warming” is a hoax that has been perpetrated globally by America’s Left and eco-Nazis.  Our planet has gone through warming and cooling cycles for millions of years, which will continue after each of us and our offspring are long gone.[2]

Pollution is a separate issue, which is being ignored by the Left and its self-anointed leaders.  They continue to pollute, and do nothing about the pollution in our oceans and space, or about the world’s two biggest polluters, India and China.[3]

The Left’s—aka eco-Nazis’—latest perverted brainchild is to ban gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles completely, even though under President Donald Trump we were essentially energy independent and self-sufficient, and able to draw on America’s vast natural resources to satisfy our needs.[4]

Joe Biden and his ilk would rather import oil from our enemies, and feed their war machines.  Why not ban electric vehicles, and dispense with the politicians in Washington, D.C., Sacramento and elsewhere who push for their supremacy?

There Is Nothing Progressive About A Democrat

18 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

As I wrote years ago, there is nothing “progressive” about a Democrat. It is a term they have used, abused and co-opted in an attempt to mask, obscure and hide their true identities, evil intentions and deeds. When I left the U.S. Senate, I went a step farther to conclude that the Democrats are “evil” but smart, while the Republicans are “Neanderthals” and dumb. I have never changed that opinion, and have been an Independent ever since.[2]

I began as a Democrat, but can’t conceive of ever voting for one again. They have moved so far to the Left as to be almost totally unrecognizable. They are un-American fascists, unbridled anarchists, unapologetic racists, blatant anti-Semites and everything else that is evil. Stated bluntly and succinctly, they are the party that Barack Obama created, and they are a mirror image of him. Any doubts, read his book, “Dreams from My Father.”[3]

Their mission has been to destroy the opposition, which is the goal of every fascist, authoritarian regime. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung were masters at it, and killed millions of human beings in the process.[4] The Democrats came after Richard Nixon, and used Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to fix the elections in Chicago and West Virginia.

When Nixon won the presidency years later, they used Watergate to destroy him. Then, they targeted Ronald Reagan with “Iran Contra,” even though Reagan had survived an assassination attempt, and had brought down the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union without a shot being fired.[5]

Next, their target was Donald Trump, who was a flamboyant businessman and had the audacity to challenge them and the so-called Washington “elite” or “establishment,” and their imbedded bureaucracy at all levels of government that had been carefully nurtured over the decades. Their efforts to destroy him have been brutal and relentless, beginning the day that he and his wife Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City and announced his candidacy.

After rigging elections across the country and installing the mentally-challenged Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the presidency—who have been destroying America and putting it at the mercy of our enemies, principally China and Russia—they are hell-bent in stopping Trump from ever challenging them again. The raid on his home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida by rogue, Gestapo-like FBI agents is their latest attempt to destroy him.

Undoubtedly authorized by Biden and his Obama-laden advisors, it was carried out by the Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose quest for a seat on our Supreme Court had been denied. FBI Director Christopher Wray approved the raid, as did a Florida Magistrate Bruce Reinhart who had helped Jeffrey Epstein’s abusers when he was in the private practice of law.

If the Democrats could “kill” Trump, they would. He is hated; and his very presence constitutes a threat to their control of the United States and the American people. Leave aside the fact that our enemies want to destroy us, the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying him and everything he and his supporters stand for. Like Reagan before him, he is the polar opposite of them, which is why he is hated like Abraham Lincoln was[6]. Are there reasonable rank-and-file Democrats who are appalled by what is happening?  Sure there are, but they do not control the party—or perhaps even influence it today.

Is America Doomed By Its Enemies, Foreign And Domestic?

15 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

If the despicable Democrats are not destroyed in November’s elections, and if their multi-year efforts against our great President Donald Trump are successful, the United States may be destroyed and will not rise again.  They are like vermin and vicious animals, which must be put down and eradicated; and yes, lots of us began as Democrats.[2]

Aside from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan—who the evil Left despises, maligns and tried to destroy—Donald Trump may be our most courageous President.  If he goes, America goes with him, and is finished.  Brain Dead Joe Biden, his traitorous Democrats, the DOJ and the FBI continue to attack him, by raiding his home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, and ascribing criminality to him.[3]

They have tried to destroy him since he and our lovely First Lady Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City, when their quest for the presidency began.  It has been a nonstop assault on his family and him, and those who have supported him.  This is evil personified, and no different than the evil perpetrated by America’s enemies, who seek to destroy all of us.[4]

The Unhinged Left Is America’s Enemy

9 07 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

When I left the United States Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[2]  I have never changed that opinion.  Quite to the contrary, I believe it today more fervently than ever; and I am not alone.[3].  And yes too, I began as a Democrat but doubt that I will vote for one ever again.

Where does one begin to chronicle the Left’s certifiable madness and hatred of the America that so many of us love?  Perhaps with their devout support of Infanticide.[4]  Or with the enabling of young Americans to switch genders; or with “gender fluidity”—the ability to switch back and forth, with the help of drugs.  Or perhaps with easy access to other life-changing drugs that can kill, such as Fentanyl, which are sometimes disguised as other drugs when they enter our country.[5]

Or with opening our borders so that all types of criminals—including human traffickers, members of the drug cartels, and outright killers—can come here; or by never incarcerating them, even if they commit all types of crimes.  Or by releasing those who do.

It’s as if the Gates of Hell have been opened wide, and everything that is evil and Godless has been released on America.  Perhaps it began when China sent its deadly Coronavirus to us, which has hurt so many: physically, psychologically and economically.  It is mutating now; and other strains or variants are emerging, and will show up as monkeypox and by other names.

Tragically, America’s domestic enemies begin with Joe Biden, Barack Obama and the Clintons.  Each is pure evil, personified.[6]  Our enemies abroad know that, and seem to be seizing every opportunity that presents itself.  From Vladimir Putin’s butchery in Ukraine, to Xi Jinping’s efforts to destroy the U.S. economy and weaken the American people, our enemies are not resting until we are prostrate.

They are trying to do to America what Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush did to the former Soviet Union: destroy us.[7]  In a sense, they make no bones about it, at least since Biden became President.  The gloves are off—the game is on.  The stakes are the future of the world.  They couldn’t be higher. Wake up Americans.  Your future and that of your children and their children are at stake.  Our enemies are playing for keeps.  If we were in their shoes, with Biden in the White House, we would be too.[8]

Lastly, Biden is not our President and never will be.  He is a caricature of what a real man is supposed to be, who has been foisted on us by the evil Democrats and Left.  He is a imposter who is occupying our White House and making a mockery of it.  On the global stage, he is a pathetic buffoon at a pivotal moment in history.  And Kamala Harris may be even worse, if that’s humanly possible.[9]

The RED WAVE is NOT Guaranteed

24 05 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

This is a warning issued by Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination in both 2008 and 2016[2], which states:

While I was in Israel recently, I was asked by Israeli friends how the elections would turn out in America this fall. My response was that Republicans will win in a blowout unless they fail to come up a cohesive message other than, “Hey we aren’t THOSE guys who doubled your gas prices, jacked up groceries by 20%, and who opened the borders to illegals but busted the supply of baby formula.” The policies of the leftist Democrats have finally become untenable for common-sense loving Americans who unlike Joe Biden’s recent nominee to the Supreme Court DO know what a woman is. The Democrats have gone into a wild irrational rage about abortion, calling it “health care for women,” even though at least one person dies every time there is an abortion. They claim that 4 and 5 year old children ought to be taught about gender fluidity before they learn their numbers, colors, and letters of the alphabet. Most Americans know that’s not just bad policy, it’s insanity. And working-class Americans have grown tired of the elitists from Hollywood and Washington lecturing about climate change and carbon footprints when the same hypocritical snobs fly around the globe in fuel-sucking, carbon emitting private jets and upon landing, ride in long black limousines while owning 4 or 5 homes.

The demands to tax more don’t go over well with anyone who owns a business or is trying to get kids to school each day and feed them each evening, but Republicans need to focus on what they will stand FOR if given the majorities in the House and Senate. Keep in mind, that even if the GOP takes both houses, they won’t be able to pass legislation because Joe Biden isn’t likely to sign anything that makes energy cheaper, houses more affordable, or our borders more secure. Biden’s party still wants to pursue truly crazy policies like Critical Race Theory that indoctrinates schoolchildren to believe that all white children are evil oppressors and that our nation is systemically racist and bad, despite it being the ONE place on earth where people of every color risk their very lives to get to because they believe America is still a great country where freedom and opportunity awaits.

Republicans should tell America that if elected, they will pursue the following things and force Joe Biden to either sign the legislation or explain to struggling American why not:

1. We will finish the border wall, enforce immigration laws, and stop the flow of deadly drugs and human trafficking of small children to become sex slaves for the drug cartels.

2. We will support our military by giving them leaders who believe that a military being deadly is more important than being diverse. That means people are promoted because they are the best, not because they are the right color, gender, or sexual identity.

3. We will value all life from conception because we don’t think any human life is disposable or expendable.

4. We will work toward a completely different tax system like the Fair Tax in which we pay taxes on what we consume and not what we produce. We would get rid of the death tax and capital gains taxes because we shouldn’t punish productivity.

5. We will follow the Constitution and allow the states to govern themselves without the federal government mandating the minutia.

6. We will not tolerate violent crime and letting killers and thugs back on the streets to repeat their attacks on the law-abiding public. We all should have an expectation to walk in our neighborhood, ride a subway or bus, or get from their car to the front door of a grocery store without being assaulted.

7. We will renew energy independence by re-starting the Keystone XL pipeline, drilling on federal lands, and extracting the oil and natural gas under our own feet and re-starting a long-term nuclear energy capacity.

The country is in a mess and while Biden and the Democrats blame Putin, Trump, or anyone but themselves, we all know they OWN the results of their policies.

But we the people own the elections with our votes. And the country doesn’t belong to the politicians but the people. Always has; always will![3]

Governor Huckabee’s words need to be heeded, not ignored.  Lots of us began as Democrats, but left the party years ago when it veered so far to the left that it was unrecognizable.  We became Independents, and proudly so, or Republicans.

We are the inheritors of a great nation, consisting of Americans of different colors, religions and ethnicities.  However, with few exceptions, we want America to survive and prosper for the rest of our lives and that of our loved ones.[4]

And yes, Vladimir Putin’s war is raging in Ukraine, and courageous Ukrainians have shown the world that freedom is precious and worth fighting for; and they are an inspiration.[5]  China threatens Taiwan, while North Korea is engaged in sable-rattling.  The Coronavirus pandemic continues to raise its ugly head, while many Americans wish it was long gone, and act accordingly.

Isn’t This All We Really Need To Know About Joe Biden?

5 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

•  President says first lady Jill Biden was Obama’s vice president – a job he held for EIGHT years – in latest blunder during ceremony to commission Navy’s newest nuclear submarine.[2]

He’s undergone at least two brain operations in prior years.[3]  And his so-called “gaffes” might be both laughable and sad if he was not the President of the United States, and ostensibly the leader of the Free World.

Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin has been systemically destroying Ukraine; and his military forces have been committing an endless stream of mind-boggling atrocities, which might not be happening if Biden was coherent.[4]  In a very real sense, Biden has blood on his hands; and he should be facing a war crimes tribunal[5], and removal from the presidency.

His humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan sent signals to the Kremlin—and to China’s Xi Jinping—that Biden wasn’t fit to serve.  A window of opportunity opened, and Putin acted decisively.

Biden’s other actions to destroy our great nation have been cataloged here before.[6]  Tragically, at this critical moment in American and world history—when China’s Coronavirus pandemic has not gone away from our shores[7]—the United States does not have a President.

Will Putin Seize Ukraine, And If So When?

27 01 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Russia’s killer Vladimir Putin is expected to attend Xi Jinping’s Winter Olympics in Beijing[2], and then all bets are off.  As I wrote in 2015:

The world must never forget that Putin left the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing to launch his aggression against Georgia.  Then, he left the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and launched his aggression against Crimea and the rest of Ukraine.  Also, the world must never forget that in addition to downing Malaysia Airlines Flight 17—and killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board—Putin killed Alexander Litvinenko and countless others.[3]

Exploiting America’s humiliating defeat in Afghanistan, both Putin and Xi are “chess masters” who may move simultaneously to inflict heavy losses—both psychologically and militarily—against the United States and the American people.  In short, the “axis of evil” may strike on multiple fronts before our elections occur later this year.

Larry Kudlow—the Director of the National Economic Council during the Trump Administration from 2018 to 2021[4]—has written an article entitled “A Perfect Storm Engulfs Biden Over Economy, Europe, and Asia,” which is worth reading:

Almost immediately following President Biden’s blundering news conference on Wednesday, a near-perfect storm has descended.  Stock markets are selling off with their worst performance in many years.  Interest rates and oil prices are rising.  High inflation is embedded in the economy, and the Federal Reserve is about to launch a monetary tightening cycle.

Russia shows absolutely no signs of de-escalating in the Ukraine. If anything, it has gotten more aggressive by moving troops into Belarus and ships into the Black Sea, effectively surrounding Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Mr. Biden’s domestic agenda has collapsed, and the very essence of his presidency is hanging by a thread.  He has never recovered from the catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal.

Nor has he recovered from his launch of a radical left big-government socialist domestic policy.

Polls unanimously show the public is simply not buying the product Mr. Biden is selling.  He doubled down on his failed woke product last Wednesday, another huge mistake.

Now, in a futile attempt to recoup his failed diplomacy with Russia, Mr. Biden’s Administration is suddenly saber-rattling an increase of American GIs into Eastern Europe under the NATO flag.  This after telling the country he would not deploy American troops.

Right now, I am completely unconvinced and uncomfortable with putting another 8,500 Yanks into Eastern Europe.

For one thing, Putin couldn’t care less. He’s got about a couple hundred [thousand] troops around the area—8,500 is an ankle bite.

For another thing, President Biden and his team have been so far behind the curve on this Ukraine story that it looks as if they can never catch up.  Our own diplomats, intel people and even Defense Department sources, expect Russia to invade Ukraine.

Look, I’m no isolationist and I’m always America First in international relations, but the way to deal with Mr. Putin is by closing down his Nord Stream pipeline and shutting Russia out of the dollar-based international banking system.

These kinds of brute economic sanctions are something that would surely get Mr. Putin’s attention and do great damage to his economy.  Close down the Russian central bank and their larger commercial banks from using the SWIFT electronic funds transfer system.

The dollar is the world’s reserve currency. About 90% of foreign exchange transactions are denominated in dollars. Take Russia out of that system and their economy is literally sunk. S-u-n-k. They can fiddle around with some Chinese banks, but China and its capital controls are a small sideshow digression in world finance.

Say to Mr. Putin: No oil, no natural gas, no dollars, no banking. Then pour a larger and larger weapons arsenal into Ukraine. That’s a tough policy. That’s what Mr. Biden should have done the minute he learned of the Russian troop buildup.

Many weeks have been wasted.  America has been reacting to Mr. Putin, not defending its own agenda.  And now, the Bidens are digging a deeper hole by putting in more American soldiers, which will prove to be extremely unpopular and ineffectual.

By the way, I hate to say it, but the current Pentagon and national security group in this Administration has not earned any spurs after the Afghanistan fiasco.  At the moment, I don’t think we want them to expand their military horizon.

I don’t know if we are appeasing Mr. Putin. That’s such a toxic word. I do know that we have been enabling Mr. Putin.  The former KGB officer now turned presidential autocrat understands this full well.  We are playing his game, on his turf, with his narrative.

Instead of talking about NATO flags, backed by the unreliable Germany, I wish we were talking about American flags and American interests in freedom, democracy, and free-enterprise capitalism.

One final thought.  This is just in, and it blows my mind.  Apparently, the Biden Administration has arranged for the payment of Iran’s dues at the United Nations.

Can you believe this?  The Bidens have arranged to release $18 million of blocked Iranian funds, to be released to the Iranians so they can pay their dues, and—get this—have a vote in the United Nations, so that John Kerry and the State Department could once again bypass Congress and make a new deal with Iran.  Like I said, a perfect storm.[5]

Kudlow’s advocacy for the use of stringent economic sanctions is consistent with my earlier articles.[6]

Unspoken in all of these discussions, but hanging like a dark cloud over all of the world today, is China’s Coronavirus pandemic.  Perhaps its impact is described best in an article by Meghan McCain, the former Senator and presidential contender’s daughter, which is worth reading.

See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10443695/MEGHAN-MCCAIN-got-Covid-doubt-America-recover-not-Biden.html (“MEGHAN MCCAIN: I finally got Covid and it was so horrible it made me doubt if America will ever recover from this pandemic. It WILL but not with moronic Biden in charge”)

I was not a fan of her father, but I voted for him.  I know little or nothing about her, except she was anti-Trump.  The latest Coronavirus mutation, Omicron, is overriding the vaccines and boosters.
