Biden botched Afghanistan. Every American deserves answers

On August 18, President Biden sat down for an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. He was asked directly if U.S. troops would stay in Afghanistan until every American who wanted to leave could do so.

Mark Milley, for sake of republic, must go

Founding Fathers were concerned the military could become more powerful than the civilian-run government and as such put in place several safeguards to ensure the power of the people wouldn't be overruled by overreaching, well-armed, well-trained, war-like types.

Why no vaccine mandate for illegals?

The Biden presidency sets a bad precedent, period ("Majority thinks Biden's COVID-19 vaccine mandate sets a bad precedent, poll shows," Web, Sept. 13). By electing Biden, the U.S. has lowered the standards for future presidential candidates.

Biden, get your knee off Israel's neck

Israel has one major impediment: It is a modern, liberal democracy with a rule of law and a morality that dates back 3,500 years ("Bennett visits el-Sissi for talks at Red Sea resort," World, Sept. 14). Its neighbors are autocratic, tribal peoples who employ violence as their preferred mode of diplomacy. Arab loyalty is to the family first, then to the clan. The attachment to a nation or nationality is more remote.

NFL keeps dividing people

The NFL allowing the playing of the Black national anthem during opening week along with the National Anthem is just the latest version of modern society ignoring history. This history includes Jim Crow laws and the 1954 Supreme Court ruling against 'separate but equal.'

Steve Stricker and Padraig Harrington have been Ryder Cup captains for nearly three years, long enough to know not every decision they make is going to be popular. Deciding whether they were the right moves won't start until the Ryder Cup is over.

Globalists grow desperate as America increasingly bucks Biden

- The Washington Times

Poll after poll after poll shows the growing pushback against Team Biden -- the growing buyer's remorse for President Biden. And Biden's globalist partners at the U.N. and elsewhere are now themselves growing anxious. After all, how to take over the world when America may not play?

Don't give up courage, resolve

For years it seems I have been completely wrong about the character and resolve of Canadians and Australians. I had thought their heroics during World War II meant they were made of solid stuff, but after they allowed their governments to virtually disarm them following the strange appearance of COVID-19, it's as though both nations got chemically castrated.

What happened to herd immunity?

As of this week, 63% of the adult population in the United States has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 54% are fully vaccinated. Per the National Institutes of Health, by the end of 2020 a third of the U.S. population (100 million) had natural immunity from having contacted COVID-19 and survived. As of today, I would imagine there at least 30 million more who have natural immunity. I have found no data on the overlap of those who have natural immunity and have also been vaccinated. I am sure there are some.
