Colin Powell, Moral Weakling When you join a gang you're required to prove your loyalty. "You've got high poll ratings," Vice President Dick Cheney told Powell as he ordered him to support the push for war. "You can afford to lose a few points."

Who Lost Afghanistan? H.R. We spent 20 years fighting people who meant us no harm and couldn't have hurt us even if they had wanted to. What Pentagon leaders don't seem to understand, is why.

Democrats Share the Blame for Afghanistan The 'Democrats - political leaders and voters alike - went far beyond tacit consent. They were actively complicit with the Republicans' war at the time of the invasion and throughout the decades-long occupation of Afghanistan'.

9/11 Had Nothing to Do with Afghanistan Better late than never: most Americans now believe that invading Afghanistan was a mistake. But what good does it do to recognize a screw-up unless you learn from it?

Abandon Afghanistan and Don't Look Back The invasion was a mistake, the occupation was a mistake and so was our propping up of our corrupt puppet regime. We never should have been there in the first place and it has taken 20 years too long to get out.

When Will Politicians Start Caring about People's Actual Problems? What are the two major political parties doing about healthcare costs? Not much. Democrats think we should be grateful for the crappy system we have now. Not that the Republicans are any better.

What You Do after Work Shouldn't Cost You Your Job The viral video was viewed more than 45 million times. Cooper was internationally shamed as an emblematic wielder of white privilege used to oppress people of color. She was charged with filing a false police report, a misdemeanor.

Biden's Left Feint If you don't dig deep Joe Biden appears to be governing as the most liberal president since LBJ. But conservatives needn't worry. Biden is no progressive in centrist's clothing.

Afghanistan Under the Taliban: It Won't Be Like Last Time We've been in Afghanistan 20 years, Joe Biden's generals told him. All we need is a little more time. The president overruled them, ordering a complete withdrawal of American troops by September 11th.

My Predictions for Biden's Probably-Truncated Presidency If I'm right the second two years of the Administration will belong to Kamala Harris as of 2023. She is young, charismatic and relatively energetic.

Cancel Culture: Another Victim of Republican Tactics The debate over "cancel culture" centers around activists and politically-correct "social justice warriors" expel people from social acceptability or force them into joblessness because something they said or did provoked an online mob.

Biden Offers Moderate Solutions to Radical Problems "Radical solutions require radical solutions," a polemic that calls upon us to save ourselves from imminent social, economic and political collapse by overthrowing the system and rebuilding society from the ground up.

Trump is Still Plotting a Possible Coup Trump is a desperate cornered rat. Once he leaves office, he becomes vulnerable to several criminal investigations. By far, the one he has to worry about the most is being conducted by the Manhattan district attorney into his corrupt business practices, charges that could not be discharged by a presidential pardon if Joe Biden were to issue one.

Why Didn't the Xenophobe-in-Chief Close the Borders? The COVID-19 pandemic was a crisis tailormade for a xenophobe like Donald Trump. On a rare occasion when America needed an isolationist leader, it instead got a globalist.

December Will Be Very Dangerous Liberal voters are counting on Biden's corporatist cabinet picks. But we still don't know for sure that Trump will let them hatch. There's still a significant chance I would put it at 50-50 that the "outgoing" president will engineer a coup d'e'tat in order to remain in power.

Joe Biden, Here's What We Want Because there isn't a political party or other formation that can credibly speak for a broad base of the American left, and because the left is divided between work-from-inside AOC-Bernie types and street-level activists, no one has defined a clear metric to judge the Biden Administration's personnel, policy and legislative actions.
