Victor Davis Hanson: There’s a Big Problem in the Top Ranks of Our Military, And Afghanistan Is Only the Beginning

September 1, 2021

It is the beginning of a never-ending bad dream. Joe Biden and the Pentagon have managed to birth a new terrorist haven, destroy much of U.S. strategic deterrence and alienate our allies and much of the country.

In the hours after the horrific deaths of 13 service members, we have been reassured by our military that our partnership with the Taliban to provide security for our flights was wise.

We were told that the terrorist victors share similar goals to ours in a hasty American retreat from Kabul. We were reminded that Afghan refugees (unlike U.S. soldiers) will not be forced to be vaccinated on arrival. Such statements are either untrue or absurd.

On the very day of the attack that killed American troops, the sergeant major of the U.S. Army reminded us in a tweet that diversity is our strength, commemorating not the dead but Women’s Equality Day. If so, then is the opposite of diversity — unity — our weakness? Will such wokeness ensure that we do not abandon the Bagram airbase in the middle of the night without opposition?

The chief of staff at the Office of Naval Intelligence warned the ONI’s active-duty and retired service members that they must not criticize Biden, their commander in chief, over the Afghanistan fiasco. The office correctly cited prohibitions found in the Uniform Code of Military Justice barring any disrespect shown to senior government leadership.

Indeed, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps was relieved of his command for posting a video accurately blaming military and civilian leadership for the Afghanistan nightmare.

Yet until Jan. 20, retired top brass had constantly smeared their elected commander in chief with impunity.

The Scale of Humiliation

August 15, 2021  by Mark Steyn
The Fall of Kabul

To reprise a line from a decade-old column of mine:

Afghanistan is about Afghanistan – if you’re Afghan or Pakistani. But, if you’re Russian or Chinese or Iranian or European, Afghanistan is about America.

That’s the point to remember: if you’re an Afghan schoolgirl, today is the fall of Kabul; elsewhere, in the chancelleries of allies and enemies alike, it’s the fall of America. Even by their usual wretched standards, the world’s most somnolent media are struggling to stay up to speed on the story. Here’s the scoop from USA Today:

Taliban’s Afghanistan Advance Tests Biden’s ‘America Is Back’ Foreign Policy Promise

You don’t say! Did he misread the prompter, or mishear the guy in his ear? “America is on its back”, surely?

But don’t worry, the world’s most lavishly over-funded “intelligence community” is on the case:

Kabul Could Fall To The Taliban Within 90 Days, U.S. Intelligence Warns

Thank you, geniuses. That was Thursday. So it turned out to be well within ninety hours – which is close enough for US intelligence work.

Was this the same “seventeen intelligence agencies” who all agreed Russia had meddled in the 2016 election – and with whose collective intelligence only a fool would disagree?

THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S EXTREMISM IS FUEL FOR DOMESTIC UNREST

Wednesday, August 11th, 2021

 

The Biden Administration’s Extremism Is Fuel For Domestic Unrest

Establishment gaslighting and threats from the Biden regime’s increasingly unhinged national security surrogates is itself becoming a radicalizing agent.
By Max Morton  August 11, 2021
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: If one wanted to create a particularly ferocious enemy out of a normally respectful and amenable segment of the population—an enemy that would aggressively fight back in response to maltreatment, thus providing a pretext for all manner of draconian security measures, budget increases, and “emergency” powers, I can think of no better way than to make them hungry, broke, powerless, and persecuted second-class citizens. One might label this method intentional radicalization.

Radicalization. Sometimes it’s more than just a word. Sometimes, for the tyrant, it’s a strategy.

Recently, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced the White House is working with various social media companies to flag and remove alleged COVID-19 misinformation. Psaki went so far as to suggest that if distributors of “misinformation”—as defined by the administration—were censored from one platform, they should be censored from all platforms. The Biden regime is getting serious about removing your access to the public square—all for your safety and security.

Likewise, the Department of Justice, the FBI, and their big-tech enablers are on the hunt for domestic extremists and general all-around infidels from the church of neo-Marxist globalism. So far they’ve had a fairly easy go of it, rounding up the January 6 protesters, deplatforming the distributors of so-called extremist misinformation, and blacklisting individual citizens who publicly speak against the Biden regime’s ideologies. All of this was made easy because the offending citizens, thinking they had constitutional rights, used digital platforms to challenge questionable claims from our ruling elites, their duplicitous medical “experts,” and the courtesans in the White House and Congress.

Just so we’re on the same sheet of music, because there’s a bunch of protesters sitting in solitary in a DC jail who didn’t get the message: The government is using the social media postings and digital communications of American citizens to target them for speaking against the establishment.

You are now the target of the enormous and deadly mass surveillance and security state you voted for back when you couldn’t have imagined that neo-Marxist elites would gain control of the government. Consider using digital countermeasures to protect yourself. For pointers, see herehere, and here.

CRT-SAME IDEOLOGY AS CHINA’S CULTURAL REVOLUTION

Thursday, August 5th, 2021

 

CRT Shares the Same Ideology as China’s Cultural Revolution, Chinese American Warns

August 4, 2021  By Lily Sun and William Huang

The Heritage Action for America, a partner organization of the Heritage Foundation, hosted a panel discussion on critical race theory (CRT) in Georgetown, Delaware, on July 29. Six speakers stressed the dangers of CRT and how it has penetrated American society. One speaker compared the similarities of CRT and China’s Cultural Revolution.

About 500 people attended the event in person, while thousands watched it via livestream.

At the beginning of the panel discussion, Jonathan Butcher, senior policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation, talked about the history of CRT and what it’s all about. He said CRT, an offshoot of Critical Theory from the neo-Marxist Frankfurt School, is built upon Karl Marx’s ideas and has slowly and methodically worked its way into American society, infecting the education system, workplace, military, and everything in between. He added that CRT is destructive and advocates for the exact opposite of what it claims to be—treating individuals differently based on the color of their skin.

CRT adherents believe America is systemically racist, that racial oppression exists in every institution, and an individual is either an oppressor or oppressed based on the color of their skin. They reject the idea that America has strived, for more than two centuries, to fully live up to the founding creed that all men are created equal and should be treated so under the law.

Feels Like Communist China

Keynote speaker Xi Van Fleet told the audience that America is starting to feel like communist China during the Cultural Revolution—a sociopolitical movement that occurred between 1966 to 1976 under former Chinese leader Mao Zedong.

“We have been seeing that America is going the wrong direction,” she said, in reference to CRT.

REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED FOR THE INFRASTRUCTURE BILL

‘Complicit’: Meet the 18 Republicans Who Sold Out on Radical Democrat ‘Infrastructure’ Plan Without Reading Bill

by Sean Moran  July 28, 2021

Eighteen Senate Republicans sold out to Senate Democrats, with 17 of them voting Wednesday night to advance a $1.2 trillion Democrat “infrastructure” bill and another signaling he would.

The Senate voted to invoke cloture, or advance, H.R. 3684, the legislative vehicle for the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The vote featured Republican and Democrat support for the bill. The Senate voted 67-32 to invoke cloture on the bill, with seventeen Republicans in favor of invoking cloture on the bill.

All of them voted for this procedural vote without reading the bill—because it would have been impossible for them to read a bill that does not yet exist. The bill has still not been written despite months of negotiations.

The Senate Republicans who voted for the Democrat $1.2 trillion bill include:

  1. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
  2. Richard Burr (R-NC)
  3. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
  4. Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
  5. Mike Crapo (R-ID)
  6. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
  7. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
  8. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
  9. Rob Portman (R-OH)
  10. Jim Risch (R-ID)
  11. Mitt Romney (R-UT)
  12. Thom Tillis (R-NC)
  13. Todd Young (R-IN)
  14. Chuck Grassley (R-IA)
  15. John Hoeven (R-ND)
  16. Kevin Cramer (R-ND)
  17. Susan Collins (R-ME)

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) was absent but signaled that he would have voted yes to advance the legislation.

These Senate Republicans voted to advance the bill even though lawmakers have not yet drafted a physical bill.
