Pinkerton: Democrats Confront the Mysteries of Afghanistan as They Run Interference for Biden’s Debacle
Last week’s hearings were a discouraging reminder that the Democrats who lead Congress aren’t interested in doing much that would make a Democratic president look bad.
After 9/11, it seemed that we were in a battle against evil. And without a doubt, Osama Bin Laden was evil. And yet strangely, the American government chose not to focus on him or even on al Qaeda. 9/11 was a test, some of which America passed and some of which it flunked. Here are five lessons to learn.
Remember Afghanistan? The Main Stream Media doesn’t want you to because it could hurt Joe Biden. So it’s doing its best to change the subject.

Wokeism is well-funded and trendy with wealthy elites. But the woke One Percenters are nowhere near a majority. This provides an opportunity for Republicans to rally Americans of all backgrounds into an anti-woke coalition.
Tech savvy activists bursting with new ideas can change electioneering just as surely as the GameStop Redditors have changed investing.
Pinkerton: Stacey Abrams Outlines Her Plan for Democratic Domination. So What’s the Republican Plan?

The Republican romance with Big Tech didn’t work out as planned. The Big Techsters, confident of kneejerk Republican support for low taxes and deregulation, were free to follow their bliss on avant-garde woke social issues.

It’s likely that if the Democrats were to win this November and were actually to propose a court-packing bill, they would, soon enough, suffer the same sort of cold reaction that FDR’s bill suffered back in 1937.

As we know, the police are under constant attack. Just on July 13, a cop in Bothell, Washington, was shot and killed by a gunman during a traffic stop.
It shouldn’t have to get to this point, but here it goes: We need a written pledge to protect our statues and monuments. That is, a written document for politicians to sign, if they wish, pledging to protect public order and the dignity of our society.
