Intel joined a long line of American companies last week by apologizing to China after its letter to suppliers drew backlash from Chinese state media and nationalist Chinese netizens.  Intel recently sent a letter to suppliers advising them not to source from Xinjiang, a region where the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has committed genocide against Uyghur Muslims and other minorities, including mass…

Refusing To Honor Its Commitment To Taiwan Would Harm The United States

Michael Anton makes a compelling case for not resisting a Chinese takeover of Taiwan with force. I agree with the vast majority of his historical and strategic assessments and arguments. But I disagree that abandoning a U.S. policy commitment to help Taiwan maintain its independence is a wise choice. Americans have spent too much of the past several decades embroiled…

Taiwan’s Best Hope Of Defense Will Come From Japan, Not The U.S.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin recently said Communist China’s frequent incursions into Taiwan’s air defense zone amount to a “rehearsal” for an eventual invasion of the island. Many China observers are convinced it is only a matter of time before China’s People’s Liberation Army invades Taiwan.   Taiwan is trying to boost its defense. Still, realistically speaking, the difference in military power between mainland China…

Joe Biden Left Behind A Humanitarian Crisis In Afghanistan

When I read this news, it broke my heart: an Afghan mother sold one of her newborn twins, a baby boy, to a childless couple for $104. She had no food for her baby boy or her seven other children. Her husband works as a day laborer, earning only $1 a day. No mother wants to be separated from her child…

Why National Conservatives’ Platform Should Start With Men

According to Sen. Josh Hawley, American men are in trouble. Beginning with a speech at the recent National Conservatism conference, Hawley has highlighted the crisis of American masculinity, arguing that our society disdains manhood, and that consequently many men are “withdrawing into the enclave of idleness, and pornography, and video games.” Hawley is right, and the growing national conservative movement…

Biden Nominates Worst Catholic Democrat (After Himself) As Papal Ambassador

Thanks to our token “devout” President Joe Biden, former Indiana Sen. and Planned Parenthood advocate Joe Donnelly could represent America’s Catholic faithful as the U.S. ambassador to the Roman Catholic pope. Self-proclaimed Roman Catholic Donnelly is about as faithful as Biden himself. That is to say, not at all. Throughout his presidency, Biden has presented a mirage of faith to…

Iran Cements Its Advantage While Biden Sleeps

Six months into President Joe Biden’s term, several sanctions against Iran were lifted and new ones imposed as the administration seeks to cajole Iran back to the negotiating table over their nuclear capacity. While the messaging from Washington, and the signaling from Tehran, was mixed, one thing was clear this past July in the southwestern city of Ahvaz: people were…

Is It Any Surprise That A Military That Believes America Is ‘Evil’ Botched The Mission In Afghanistan?

If America is as innately evil as some of our educators and “anti-racism” trainers say it is, then what business do we have being in Afghanistan, or anywhere else, for that matter? A nation that preaches these things flirts with the type of debacle we are seeing in Afghanistan. Maybe there is a silver lining to the national humiliation that…

America’s Failure In Afghanistan Is A Call To Ordinary Americans To Clean House

People are fond of saying that Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires. Historically speaking, this is true—Alexander the Great, the British Empire, the Soviet Union, and now the United States of America have all failed in their geopolitical efforts there. Often, “experts” attribute this failure to the courageous and noble tribes of Afghanistan who are committed to defeating the invading…

Biden’s Weakness Will Result In Aggression. Here Are 4 Likely Foreign Policy Scenarios

Even prior to the stunning display of American failure in Afghanistan, President Biden appeared slow-witted and spineless on crucial U.S. national security matters. For example, Biden handed Russia’s Vladimir Putin gift after gift: extending the START Treaty, lifting Nord Stream 2 pipeline sanctions despite bipartisan legislation and essentially surrendering Ukraine to Russia. During the Biden-Putin summit in Geneva, Biden was…

3 Myths About Why The Afghanistan Withdrawal Is Such A Disaster

An apocryphal story claims that, before the Afghanistan War, a British intelligence officer group went to Russia to study Soviet archives about Afghanistan. When they told their Russian counterparts why they were there, the Russians laughed and then explained what was going to happen if Western forces invaded.

The Afghanistan Failure Proves America’s Regime Isn’t Fit To Lead

For nearly 20 years, American men and women have gone to Afghanistan and performed heroically.

There Will Never Be Enough Blood Or Money Spent In Afghanistan For Warmongers Like Dan Crenshaw

Don’t ever take financial advice from Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw and definitely don’t listen to him when he starts talking about Afghanistan. He apparently has no idea what a “sunk cost” is.
