Leaving Afghanistan was a bold descision by president Biden. He extended the deal Trump made with Taliban last year. Trump didn`t like the war in Afghanistan. He didn`t like the war in Iraq either. He was a man who stood for peace and prosperity.
A lot of people support the descision to get out from Afghanistan, but the way they did it is not so popular. Biden`s approval rationg is «under the water.» In other words; below 50. As you can see in the video below, the Biden administration have full control. Everything is calm.
Former president Donald Trump was a commander-in-chief, but the Hate Media attacked him every single day. No matter what he did or say. The same cannot be said about President Joe Biden. Media loves him. No matter what he say or does.
A commander-in-chief or supreme commander is the person who exercise supreme command and control over an armed forces or a military branch. As a technical term, it refers to military competencies that recides in a country`s executive leadership, a head of state or a head of government.
Trump confronted China, defeated ISIS and depleted Iran. He did this because he wanted to protect the United States of America. Trump also created security at the boarder with Mexico, while Biden made a lot of chaos, but the Hate Media doesn`t talk much about that.
Steve Hilton think Trump was a strong leader with a peace of strength leadership, but Biden and the failed establishment is nothing but chaos through weakness. Rep Jackie Speier said on CNBC that the chaos is an «Intelligence failure.»
On July 8, Biden was questioned over intel before Afganistan collapsed. «Your own intelligence community has assessed that the Afghan government will likely collapse,» a journalist said. «That`s not true,» Biden said. Experts are claiming Biden lied and the Democrats is trying to shift the blame on the Intelligence community.
Wait a minute. This is similar to the chaos former president Bush created. He said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and went to war on that. But it was all a big lie. The chaos started after the attack on twin towers, 9/11, 2001.
For all I know, Bush has never been in Iraq. So, who told him that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction?
We all know the chaos in Afghanistan, but who is talking about the leadership that created it? Very few, but Steve Hilton does, and he is angry. President Biden gave the government to Taliban only days before the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
This is a war England lost. This is also a war that Russia lost. They got bankruptsy in 1998 because of the war in Afghanistan. Now, the US gives up too. Billions is lost. Thousands of soldiers are killed, and there is nothing left.
This is embarrassing and Taliban declares the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. It seems like the democracy in Afghanistan is working, if democracy is «control of an organization or group by the majority of its members.»
It`s unbelieveable. 100 years ago, the Tulsa race massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921. Mobs of White residents, many of them deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The massacre is also known as the Black Wall Street Massacre, and it marks one of «the single worst incidents of racial violence in American history».
The attack, carried out on the ground and from private aircraft, destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the district at that time the wealthiest Black community in the United States, known as «Black Wall Street».
It wasn`t easy in Oklahoma 100 years ago. Oklahoma had a racially, and politically tense atmosphere. Many servicemen had returned following the end of the First World War in 1918, and the American Civil War, which ended in 1865, was still in living memory.
Civil rights for African Americans were lacking, and the Ku Klux Klan was resurgent (primarily through the widly popular 1915 film; The Birth of a Nation).
Tulsa was also a booming oil city, supported a large number of affluent, educated and professsional African American people. Greenwood was a district in Tulsa, and Greenwood became so prosperous that it came to be known as «the Negro Wall Street», but now commonly referred to as «the Black Wall Street.
Most Black people lived together in the district. Black Americans had created their own businesses and services in this enclave, including several grocers, two newspapers, two movie theaters, nightclubs, and numerous churches.
Harlows Weekly reported in an article that the actions that took place was economically and politically, rather than racially, motivated.
The territory of northern Oklahoma had been established for the resettlement of Native Americans from the southeast, some of whom had owned slaves. Other areas had received many settlers from the South whose families had been slaveholders before the Civil War.
Oklahoma was admitted as a state on November 16, 1907. The newly created state legislature passed racial segregation laws, commonly known as Jim Crow laws, as its first order of business. The 1907 Oklahoma Constitution did not call for strict segregation, delegates feared that, should they include such restrictions, U.S President Theodore Roosevelt would veto the document.
Still, the first law passed by the new legislature sesgregated all rail travel, and voter registration rules effectively disenfranchised most Black Americans. That meant they were also barred from serving on juries or on local office. These laws were enforced until after passage of the fedral Voting Rights Act of 1965. Major cities passed additional restrictions.
Northeastern Oklahoma was in an economic slump that increased unemployment. Since 1915, the Ku Klux Klan had been growing in urban chapters across the country. Its first significant appearance in Oklahoma occurred on August 12, 1921.
By the end of 1921, 3,200 of Tulsa`s 72,000 residents were Klan members according to one estimte. In the early 20th century, lynching were common in Oklahoma as part of a continuing effort to assert and maintain white supramacy.
By 1921, at least 31 people, mostly men and boys, had been lynched in the newly formed state, 26 were Black.
The massacre in Tulsa began during the Memorial Day weekend after 19-year-old Dick Rowland, a Black shoeshiner, was accused of assulting Sarah Page, the 17-year-old White elevator operator of the nearby Drexel building.
(This case is very similar to George Floyd`s case, were he was accused for stealing cigarettes).
He was taken into custody. After the arrest, rumors spread through the city that Rowland was to be lynched. Upon hearing reports that a mob of hundreds of White men had gathered around the jail where Rowland was being kept, a group of 75 Black men, som of whom were armed, arrived at the jail in order to ensure that Rowland would not be lynched.
The sheriff persuaded the group to leave the jail, assuring them that he had the situation under control. A shot was fired, and then, according to the reports of the sheriff, «all hell broke loose.»
At the end of the firefight, 12 people were killed: 10 White and 2 Black. As news of these deaths spread throughout the city, mob violence exploded. White rioters rampaged through the Black neighborhood that night and morning killing men and burning and looting stores and homes.
Around noon on June 1, the Oklahoma National Guard imposed martial law, effectively ending the massacre.
About 10,000 Black people were left homeless, and proerty damage amounted to more than $1,5 million in real estate and $750,000 in personal property ($32,65 million in 2020). Many survivors left Tulsa, while Black and White residents who stayed in the city kept silent about the terror, violence, and resulting losses for decades. The massacre was largely omitted from local, state, and national histories.
In 1996, 75 years after the massacre, a bipartisan group in the state legislature authorized formation of the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. The commission`s final report, published in 2001, states that the city had conspired with the mob of White citizens against Black citizens, it recommended a program of reparations to survivors and their descendants.
The state passed legislation in order to establish scholarships for the descendants of survivors, encourage the economic development of Greenwood, and develop a park in memory of the victims of the massacre in Tulsa.
The park was dedicated in 2010. In 2020, the massacre became a part of the Oklahoma school curriculum.
On Monday, Biden signed a White House proclamation declaring a day of remembrance, which called upon Americans to remember those who were killed as well as those who survived, and to «commit toghether to eradicate systemic racism and help to rebuild communities and lives that have been destroyed by it.»
President Joe Biden will visit Greenwood on Tuesday, but the visit is not expected to be public. He will tour the Greenwood Cultural Center across the street from Vernon AME Church.
«I`m a capitalist, but here`s the deal…..» president Biden said. He also bashes trickle-down economy. Steve Forbes said Biden is not a capitalist. He is a far-left politician. Economists like Forbes are concerned about the rising inflation.
Core PCE prices in the US, which exclude volatile food and energy cost, increased 3,1 percent YoY in April of 2021, following an upwardly revised 1,9 percent gain in March and compared to market forecasts of 2,9 percent.
It is the highest rate since the 1990s, bringing it well above the Fed`s 2 percent target.
The Core Personal Consumption Expenditure Price Index provides a measure of the prices paid by people for domestic purchases of goods and services, excluding the prices of food and energy. The core PCE is the Fed`s preferred inflation measure, and the targest is 2 percent.
President Biden released a proposal that calls for $6 trillion in additional spending over the next decade. An ambitious plan that would run a $1,8 trillion federal government deficit despite a raft of new tax increases.
The budget proposal incorporates the American Jobs Plan, the American Families Plan and the $4 trillion infrastructure. Looking for the expectations about unemployment, the White House sees it falling to 4,7% by the end of 2021, 4,1% in 2022, and 3,8% the following year. They expect it will remain at 3,8% for the ensuing seven years.
The Treasury Department said that the deficit for the first seven months of fiscal 2021 still hit a new record of USD 1,932 trillion, which is a 30% increase from the same period of fiscal 2020.
Somebody have to pay for all the debt, and that is the people. To solve that, Biden wants people to pay more tax, but inflation (higher prices) is also a form for tax. A hidden tax.
It`s funny to watch Great Britain and the United States at the moment. In the U.S, the conservatives lost the election and Biden and his left wing democrat administration won. In the U.K, Boris Johnson and his conservative friends won in a landslide. The same can not be said about Biden.
They are both outside of the EU and Trump and Johnson was considered to be a win against socialism. Take a look at the slogan Johnson has; Build back better. They are leaving the business club EU and want to build back better.
But take a look at Biden and his slogan; Build back better. Biden and the democrats wants to build back what Trump did. They are on two different planets, with two different world views.
Everything has been great with the Labour Party for years, but they have been in trouble before. One of the most deprived areas of the UK, the blue-collar port saws its steel industry collapse in the 1970s and 80s and the unemployment rate remains among the highest in the century.
Politically, it`s backed the Labour Party at every UK election for almost half a century, but then came Brexit.
As of April 12, Boris Johnson`s approval rating remain very high at 70%. Not only that. Brexit has also a 70% approval rating, so there is not doubt that the people in Great Britain support the conservatives and Brexit.
According to Nigel Farage, the Labour Party is finish in England. The country is about the change rapidly. Queen Elizabeth said in the Parliament a few days ago that the UK will strengthen the borders. Legislation will also be introduced to ensure the integrity of elections.
They saw what happened in Georgia during the U.S election and learned from the mistakes in the U.S. Dead voters will have problems to vote if they have to show up personally with a picture on the voting day.
Freedom of speech will also be protected. This is very similar to whats happening the U.S. They are both about the change rapidly. What a interesting world we are living in.
