Washington’s Strategic Overextension
Post Date: 2023-09-29 00:14:07 by Charles_Byrd
The Biden administration seems determined to pursue highly confrontational policies toward both Moscow and Beijing. The United States, through its leadership of NATO, is pursuing a full-blown proxy war against Russia in Ukraine. Indeed, that initiative appears to be only part of a larger plan to fatally weaken Russia as a major power. Washingtons confrontation with the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) is not yet as intense, but a pronounced chill in bilateral relations has become apparent. Biden has escalated Americas support for Taiwans de facto independence, and Washington has taken multiple steps to contain the PRCs economic and military power in East Asia ...

Imperial Footprints in Africa: The Dismal Role of AFRICOM
Post Date: 2023-09-29 00:05:33 by Charles_Byrd
No power in history has exercised such global reach. With brutal immediacy, forces from the United States may be dispatched and deployed within hours to combat any designated adversary. From its webbed network of bases official, semi-official and undeclared, Washingtons imperium can exert heft in a number of military domains with a ruthlessness the envy of any of its rivals. In the aftermath of NATOs attack and destabilisation of Libya in 2011, France and the United States entrenched their military involvement across the Sahel. The French focused on creating G-5 Sahel spanning Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger, including expanding or opening new bases in Gao, ...

At Eagle Pass, surging illegal migrants planted a gargantuan Venezuelan flag on a Texas island in the Rio Grande as they attempted to cross illegally into the U.S. Texas Department of Public Safety's Tactical Marine Unit* troops sensibly ripped it down and apparently chased the migrants back across the river to the Mexican side.

Biden’s DHSLet 200,000 Illegal Immigrants Fly Directly Into 43 Cities

The Biden administration has unleashed a new program to boost illegal immigration that allows immigrants to fly directly from their hometowns into a U.S. city of their choice, according to newly obtained records. Instead of rushing the Texas border, the program lets immigrants use the administrations app to pick a destination, buy an airline ticket, and fly in unseen on what amounts to ghost flights. AS GOP WRESTLES WITH SPENDING DEAL, WILL HOUSE DEMOCRATS COME TO THEIR AID? According to the Center for Immigration Studies, which sued the Department of Homeland Security for the documents on the program, over 210,000 have been processed since January.

When Shelter Becomes a Speculative Asset, Society Unravels
Post Date: 2023-09-27 20:11:41 by Charles_Byrd
Let's begin by stipulating that speculation (i.e. gambling) is part of human nature. The role of regulations and policy is to limit the damage that gambling inevitably inflicts when "sure things" cliff-dive into losses. In other words, where the speculative frenzy and money flows matters. When the South Sea Bubble expanded circa 1713-1720, this flood tide of speculative capital did not distort the cost of shelter and bread in England; it was limited to a purely financial marketplace of shares in the company. When the bubble imploded in 1720, the losses fell mostly on wealthy investors like Isaac Newton. Click for Full Text!

As the families of the missing boys mark another wrenching anniversary and the investigation in Mexico grinds on, the National Security Archive takes a look at the declassified record on Ayotzinapa in the United States and asks, Why has the U.S. government released so little information about this case?

West Point goes full woke, pushes 'Diversity & Inclusion Studies'
Post Date: 2023-09-27 19:58:08 by Charles_Byrd
The United States Military Academy at West Point is offering a "Diversity and Inclusion Studies Minor" as part of its escalating DEI agenda championing "critical race theory" and transsexuality, among other leftist ideologies. Though the academy cloaks its DEI, or "Diversity, Equity & Inclusion," mission in idealistic, cultural-left rhetoric, a review of its sustaining documents reveals signs of the same "woke" mindset that has divided the nation by mainstreaming sex-and-gender radicalism as well as a racialist obsession deemed by many conservatives and moderates to be anti-white racism.

From Liberal Democracy to Global Totalitarianism
Post Date: 2023-09-27 19:53:20 by Charles_Byrd
In a 2022 lecture at Notre Dame, Alasdair MacIntyre argued that the claims and conceptions of universal and inalienable human dignity as reflected in documents such as the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in various post-war European constitutions are puzzling, since this dignity requires a duty of respect to everyone just for being human, no matter their behavior or character, so Stalin the mass murderer has as much dignity and deserves as much respect as Mother Teresa. Aquinas view of dignitas as interpreted by Charles De Koninick is a challenge to this view, for it assigns human dignity, not to the mere fact of being human, but to the end to which ...
