Graham, in Break with POTUS, Pushes for Continued Military Intervention Overseas

What message is Lindsey Graham sending here, exactly?

Lindsey Graham

In the wake of President Trump’s decision to pull US troops out of Syria, there has been an unexpected and vitriolic pushback that few could have seen coming.

As a nation, we were founded on the principle of non-interventionism and being certain that the best interests of the nation were at the top of our list of priorities.  As time progressed we have undoubtedly lost our way in that regard, having assumed the role of “world police” in the aftermath of World War II.

Of course, having the most potent military on the planet certainly hasn’t hurt us, in that regard.

Now that Trump is pulling us out of Syria, however, we have seen near-pandemonium in certain Washington circles.

First, there was the resignation of James Mattis from his post at the Department of Defense, and now, this:

Wednesday CNN aired an interview with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) during his Christmas trip to Afghanistan.

Graham said, “I cannot stress enough to the people back home that this is yet another Christmas that the soldiers are in Afghanistan. And the reason they are here is so you can enjoy your Christmas. They all know what would happen to this place if we left too soon. It would be an absolute disaster and the biggest winners are the people who do not have our best interest at heart.”

He continued, “You are going to fight this war with radical Islam whether you want to or not. The question is in whose backyard? I choose the terrorists’ backyard versus America’s backyard. I choose to do it with partners. The Afghans have been good partners. If you pull the plug here you will never have a partner anywhere else.”

It is unknown whether or not Graham meant this is a subtle diss against presidential policy, pontificating as many other have about the impact of leaving Syria to fend off what remains of ISIS alone.

The President has discussed ending US intervention in Afghanistan in recent days, mulling the idea over publicly via Twitter.

BOMBSHELL: Shocking New Report Shows Trump Is Making America LESS Racist (Details)

And BOOOOOOOMMM goes the dynamite!

Do you like apples? A new report shows that since President Trump has been in office, America is a less racist country than most liberals want the politically uninformed to believe. How do you like them apples? From Spectator: […] Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, when Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters. It is a similar story to that in Britain, where the attempt to link Brexit with rising xenophobia has been somewhat debunked. A murder of a Polish man in the town of Harlow in August 2016 was widely attributed to Brexit – but eventually declared by police not to have been a hate crime at all. Similarly, a smashed window in a Spanish restaurant in South London on the night of the Brexit vote was initially widely reported to be an expression of euphoria on the part of xenophobes – but was later revealed to be an attempted burglary. According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib, all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic…

BUSTED! Joe Biden Vowed to Ban Sanctuary Cities During Second Run for POTUS In 2007

Hey, Joe – DO YOU REMEMBER THIS!?

1988. 2008. And now, 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden is attempting to become president of the United States for the third time. Back in 2007 at a New Hampshire primary debate, handsy Joe was asked about “sanctuary cities.” He said he wouldn’t allow them. Biden’s exchange with New England Cable News’s Alison King went as follows: KING: I’d like to hear from Senator Biden, would you allow these cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added] BIDEN: The reason that cities ignore the federal law is the fact that there is no funding at the federal level to provide for the kind of enforcement at the federal level you need … Part of the problem is you have to have a federal government that can enforce laws. This administration’s been fundamentally derelict in not funding any of the requirements that are needed even to enforce the existing law… [Emphasis added] … KING: So Senator Biden, yes or no, would you allow those cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added] BIDEN: No. [Emphasis added] With everything Joe has said over the years, how in the world is this man the Democrat frontrunner? It’s almost baffling. Almost. The former VP can’t seem to escape his gaffe-prone ways, yet continues to remain in the public eye. When it comes down to it and Joe goes head-to-head with President Trump in the 2020 general election, Biden stands an excellent chance of being a thrice failed candidate for POTUS. Check out this recently unearthed clip of Biden sounding eerily similar to Trump when it comes to Mexico – and it’s not from that long ago. LOOK: A review of rhetoric from Joe Biden’s record on immigration. It included boasting about needing a 700 mile fence to stop “tons…tons…tons” of drugs from “corrupt Mexico”…
