In Pursuit of a Bad Deal: The Iran Deal Redux

Even as the Russian invasion of Ukraine draws strong condemnation from the Biden administration, in other venues the administration’s foreign policy representatives sit side-by-side with their Russian counterparts, as well as those of China, another hostile regime, asking for their help with a new Iran deal.  If that sounds like a bad idea, well, when it comes to the Iran deal, as the old saying goes, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

What else is DHS hiding in the annual ICE report?

Initial data leaked from the government’s 2021 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Annual Report shows why agency leadership may be sitting on it.

For the first time in at least a decade, ICE failed to release its congressionally mandated annual report on deportations of illegal immigrants by the end of the calendar year. Data from the report was reportedly leaked to the Free Beacon. The numbers show that in 2021, the Biden administration deported just 55,590 illegal immigrants, the smallest number in five years (taking us back to the Obama-Biden administration). This is less than a third of the deportations in 2020 and about one-fifth the number in 2019.

Indisputable Facts, Unacceptable Conclusions: DHS’ Latest Effort to Stamp Out ‘False or Misleading Narratives’

Today, everywhere you look, the First Amendment and/or free speech are under attack. The most prominent recent example involves Joe Rogan.

As a result of these criticisms, Rogan has already apologized for some of his podcasts, and removed some of the offending ones from Spotify.

DHS issues terrorism advisory citing ‘misleading narratives’ that ‘undermine public trust in U.S. government’

The Center to Advance Security in America (CASA) said it intends to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to see the basis of the DHS bulletin, according to The Washington Times. “What is a ‘misleading narrative,’ and who’s deciding what’s misleading, and how are they going to go after and conduct intelligence on it?” CASA Director Adam Turner said Wednesday in an interview. “I think they’re referring to people that don’t agree with whatever their talking points are for that time.”

Group targets DHS threat bulletin citing false, misleading narratives in domestic terror warning

A watchdog group is pressing the Department of Homeland Security to disclose its methods behind a new domestic terrorism threat bulletin that warns of “the proliferation of false or misleading narratives” as a cause of undermining public trust in the federal government. The Center to Advance Security in America (CASA) said it will file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking the basis for the DHS bulletin. The group said the Biden administration’s policy involves “the use of the domestic security state to potentially target political opponents, squash free speech and deliver federal dollars to special interest allies.”

President Joe Biden wanted out of the Afghanistan War in the worst way

On April 14, 2021, President Biden made his withdrawal announcement regarding U.S. troops in Afghanistan.  Over the next few months, contrary to most Americans’ expectations, as the U.S. left, the U.S.-supported Afghan government lost more and more territory to the resurgent Taliban.  On August 15, 2021, the U.S.-supported Afghan government collapsed.  This shouldn’t have been a complete surprise…
