Posted in: Joint Chiefs chairman calls Afghan war a 'strategic failure' See in context

A strategic failure in which he participated in.

Why is he still wearing a uniform? He should have resigned.

Biden and his administration officials planned for all contingencies when it came to the military withdrawal. Was a strategic failure one of the planned contingencies?

Blame Trump, the Afghan government, and the Afghan defense force, but don't you dare blame Biden and his administration officials who planned for all contingencies.

They should all be awarded Oscars for playing their parts in this fiasco.

Liar liar pants on fire! Blinken graduated from the school of repeat a lie often enough and people will start to believe that it’s true, even the person telling the lie.

All of this fuss over a voter ID. You would have thought that Georgia was the first and only state to require a voter ID while the other 49 states did not require a voter ID.

Advice to all of the protagonists, boycott all states which require a voter ID.

Posted in: Amazon warehouse workers reject union bid in Alabama See in context

In the beginning, unions provide a great benefit to the workers. Collective bargaining has more leverage than individuals.

However, over time, union leaders provide a great benefit to themselves and not to the workers. This phenomena is not exclusive to unions. It happens to all organizations, for profit, non-profit, local, state, and federal governments.

Unless union workers pay close attention to their unions, workers will end up paying dues and not getting their money's worth.

Posted in: Barring fans from abroad for Tokyo Olympics creates many questions See in context

The truth be told, it was never about the attendees. It was about the TV revenue from the broadcasters and advertisers.

One problem, will anyone watch the Olympics? Yes, but probably only the diehards which will be a fraction of the usual audience.

I would describe it as infatuation. Infatuation is a powerful and intense feeling one gets over another person. However, it's usually temporary. Apparently this is an exception.

Wow, both men are over 80 years old! In the U.S., Feinstein is 87, Pelosi is 80, and Biden is 78. Nothing against older people, but it prevents younger people from moving up.

"The new case was diagnosed in a person self-isolating at home in Hamilton, a city in the North Island of New Zealand, who was released from a two-week hotel quarantine on Jan. 30 after testing negative twice for the virus."

What now? Apparently the first two test results were faulty due to human or technical errors?

21 day quarantine around the corner?

Whether you like him or not, Hamilton is an excellent driver. His driving is flawless and he seldom makes a mistake. Consistency in performance is what makes him a champion. More power to him.

Posted in: Coe supports athletes' right to advocate for social or racial justice at Olympics See in context

The Olympics is not a venue for social or racial justice. It's a venue for amateur sports. If the Olympics is going woke, people will stay away. One only needs to look at the recent NBA finals in the United States. There was a heavy price to pay for the NBA going woke. The Commissioner just announced that next year's NBA will not allow players to express their social and political views on the court. Why? They lost money big time.

Posted in: Pelosi says U.S. postmaster general has no plans to restore mail cuts See in context

During Obama's 8 years in office, the USPS removed 12,000 plus mailboxes. Not one complaint was made by the Democrats.

Now that the Democrats have decided that mail-in voting is the flavor of the day, they're having a cat fit. They want you to believe that mail-in voting is absentee voting and if you're against it, you are guilty of voter suppression.

Mail-in voting and absentee voting are not the same. Mail-in voting is the mass mailing of ballots to all registered voters i.e. living, dead, those who have moved, etc. Absentee voting is voting by mail after submitting an application for a ballot to the elections office and receiving a ballot by mail.

Over the past decade, first-class mail volumes have dropped in half. Less processing of 1st class mail, but keeping the same amount of employees. Any private business would have gone bankrupt years ago.

Posted in: U.S. records 34,700 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday; highest one-day total since April See in context

Hospitalizations and deaths are what counts not cases. If COVID-19 is compared to the common flu, there are always deaths from the common flu during the flu season. These deaths occur despite the fact that we have vaccines!

Do we really think that a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent deaths? It's wishful thinking.

Testing for COVID-19 is like taking a photo. It's good for the moment it's taken. However, you can get infected a second later if you come into contact with someone who is infected and infectious.

A recent study has revealed that asymptomatic people who have COVID-19 are not infectious. This remains to be seen.

Bottom line. Yes, COVID-19 is highly a highly infectious virus. However, most people who are infected will recover from the infection. Only the elderly, people with pre-existing conditions, and possibly people with type A blood will die.

Posted in: Bolton memoir raises concern over Japan alliance if Trump re-elected See in context

WWII ended 75 years ago. Why is the U.S. still in Japan? The same can be asked of South Korea and Germany.

These countries have recovered from the war ravages of WWII and the Korean Conflict. It's time they defended themselves.

Trump is right. If U.S. forces are to remain in these countries, they have to pay more. The alternative is to grow their own military and defend themselves.

Posted in: U.S. demanded Japan pay $8 bil annually for troops: Bolton See in context

What Bolton revealed is scandalous! How dare the U.S. demand such an increase? It's outrageous! We should be paying Japan! After all, the U.S. is using Japan as its fist line of defense in the Far East.

Bolton deserves a medal for revealing this secret. He is a hero.

If you believe the above, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Posted in: Bolton says Trump pleaded with China to help him get reelected See in context

What is the problem with these former government officials. Can't they keep their mouths shut? Trump gave Bolton an opportunity to lead but Bolton was incompetent and Trump ended up firing him. Bolton has an axe to grind. Is he still credible?

Brennan and Clapper have gone silent because they know that the Durham criminal investigation will end up in indictments.

Posted in: Trump calls for more from Japan as security pact turns 60 years old See in context

It's time for the people of Japan to decide if they still want the presence of U.S. military on their native soil. If yes, they will need to pay for it. If no, we will leave.

National security for the U.S. and its allies has been the reason for our presence across the world. Is this still a valid reason? Why can't our allies provide for their own defense instead of relying on the U.S.?

Posted in: New Trump rule targets poor and could cut legal immigration in half, advocates say See in context

Unless you have refugee status, you must show a means of support to immigrate to the U.S. The alternative is to have a sponsor who will support you. The days of anyone without means of support are over. The U.S. is not the only country who has this prerequisite. It's just that we haven't been strictly enforcing it.

Posted in: Cohen claims Trump knew hush money payments wrong See in context

Cohen is lying. The hush payments were not illegal. Hush payments are made all the time. If the payments were made from a political campaign fund and there is incontrovertible evidence, they would be violations. Violations result in fines. In other words, no jail time.

Cohen pleaded guilty to tax evasion and lying to Congress. The anti-Trumpers want you to believe that the hush money payments were a crime.

"This is not the formula for peace building..." Was the current formula working? $25 million and what in return? Absolutely nothing?

Only the U.S. would continue giving financial aid year after year and get nothing in return. It's called diplomacy by the elitists.

Posted in: No shove, but Trump body language speaks to frosty relations during NATO events See in context

Trump is correct, the dedicated gas pipeline between Russia and Germany is a deal with the devil. Once completed, Russian will have total control of the energy which powers Europe. Leftist will say that this will not happen because Russia can be trusted. Wasn't it just recently when Russia shut off the existing pipeline which runs through the Ukraine to teach the Ukranians a lesson?

As for NATO, only 5 members of the 29 members alliance are spending 2% of their GDP on their military. Other U.S. presidents have noted this but Trump is making an issue of it. You would have thought that Germany one of the most successful member in the alliance was meeting its financial obligation. However, it has been reported that the majority of the air force is grounded and their infantry had to use broomsticks for simulated rifles in a military exercise.

Why doesn't anyone comment on the negative effects to the Mexican consumer? Will they stop eating U.S. pork and stop drinking U.S. bourbon?

When the U.S. government mandated ethanol from food corn to be blended in gasoline, the price to tortillas in Mexico jumped from 75 cents to $1.50. Our corn farmers made out while the Mexican consumers were shafted.
