275554049 534687694653771 3700059945959007938 n

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is again pushing the United States to take a more aggressive stance against Russia, urging his US counterpart to completely isolate the Russian economy after earlier demanding he impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine. In his latest call with President Joe Biden last Friday, Zelensky reportedly asked Washington to close any loopholes in existing penalties, to “significantly broaden” the sanctions blacklist for Russian officials and even restrict Moscow’s access to major international waterways.  The White House has yet to confirm what was discussed on the...

North Korea Conducts Missile Test After Declaring ‘New Situation’ With China

north korea g64d9c9e62 1920

North Korea has conducted a ballistic missile test which it said would help launch new reconnaissance satellites into orbit. Japanese and South Korea officials announced the launch early Sunday, saying the munition traveled 190 miles before landing in the Sea of Japan.  While the Joe Biden administration condemned the test, it has largely ignored the Korean nuclear file since coming to power and has done little to advance diplomacy on the peninsula. Late in 2021, South Korean President Moon Jae-in attempted to broker an official end to the Korean War, which was never terminated with a...

TGIF: Pursue Your Happiness and Forget the Rest

pursuit

How about we do something novel in the new year? Let's stop worrying about the stuff most politicians, pundits, and activists want us to worry about and instead think about ourselves, our families, our friends, and whatever communities we choose to be part of. Let's forget about "the country" and the rest of the world. Let's individually pursue happiness. All I'm saying is that it's finally time for the politicians, bureaucrats, and know-it-all intelligentsia, left or right, to get out of the way and let us set our own agendas. Too self-centered? Well, too bad. Much evil results from...

Eighteen ‘Offensive’ Words You Can’t Say in Canada

justin trudeau 2021

Think that the U.S. is the wokiest nation on the planet? Think again. Canada is coming up fast, and with its latest initiative, appears to be on the inside track. What has the Great White (pardon me for using this word) North done to warrant this characterization? They have come up with eighteen words that are offensive; you say them only at your peril, at least in the frozen country to the north of the U.S. What are these words? They are as follows: Ghetto; sell someone down the river; blackmail; brainstorm; savage; gypped; pow wow; tribe; spooky; black sheep; blind spot; blindsided;...

The Danger of ‘Great Power Competition’ with Russia and China

hydrogen bomb 63146 1280

The latest flare-up in the geopolitical standoff over Ukraine is a feature, not a bug, of Washington's most recent grand narrative of global affairs. The names of these grand narratives read more like B-list action titles than mass-murder campaigns: From the production team who brought you "The Red MENACE," the "War on Terror," and "Counterinsurgency," the foreign policy establishment is proud to present: "Renewed Power Competition."  Admittedly, this installment's title doesn't quite have the same boom! to it. But for you action fans out there, never fear, its implications and the...

On COI #104, Kyle and Will update the progress of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. Soon after the White House announced the exit was finally underway, CNN published a scare story hyping up threats from two anonymous al-Qaeda operatives, insisting that ending the longest war in American history would invite new terrorist attacks. CNN is joined by countless other media outlets in making dire warnings about ending the war. The Biden team has finished a policy review on North Korea, opting to strike a balance between Donald Trump's "grand bargain" and Barack Obama's policy of "strategic...

Conflicts of Interest #91: The Government Has Continued Massive, Wasteful Spending During Covid

COI_Logo

The US government has preached to its citizens the need to be compliant and accept extreme limitations of freedoms in the name of fighting Covid. However, the government has continued - and even added some new - massive, wasteful spending projects. The US frequently engages in costly military maneuvers as a 'show of force' to Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela. Even as we spend trillions fighting the pandemic, Biden is unwilling to cut the military budget. The Army just announced it will spending $21 billion buying HoloLens from Microsoft and also wants to build new long and...
