Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has emerged as the most belligerent proponent for endless wars in Washington D.C. since the death of Sen. John McCain.
Crenshaw confirmed during an appearance on “The Charlie Kirk Show” that he never wants the troops to come home from Afghanistan. He wants U.S. troops to put their lives in harms way forevermore, despite the fact that the Afghanistan war has been proven to be a disaster of monumental proportions.
“Do you think we should ever end the current war in Afghanistan?” Kirk asked Crenshaw while he appeared on his podcast.
“No.” Crenshaw responded, “Again, this gets back to, ‘What is the mission?’ The mission is prevention. It always has been. Now, I think the reason we’re having this discussion is because for too long, leaders were telling you that the mission was winning.”
To his credit, the Turning Point USA founder pushed back against Crenshaw’s assertion that U.S. forces should be the policeman of the world.
“I think it’s long past time to end the war in Afghanistan,” Kirk told Crenshaw. “The American people tend to agree with that. Polling shows it’s under water. We spent $5 billion dollars on Afghan security forces — there’s questions if that’s even effective.”
Kirk put Crenshaw on the spot to defend the Afghanistan war effort, and urged him to make the case to remain in the nation that has historically been called the “graveyard for empires.”
“We’ve spent over a trillion dollars, lost thousands of people — make the case that we should continue the occupation in Afghanistan,” Kirk said. “What does success look like? What does victory look like?”
Crenshaw responded with a spirited defense of the military-industrial complex and the U.S. empire:
What we get out of it is not another 9/11, every single day — and you’re right, it is under water as far as public opinion goes, and there’s a lot of people who hold the opinion that you have. The president himself is very skeptical of it. And I think the reason behind that is because there’s been a lot of leaders who have been constantly saying that we’re going to win, and we’ve got to win, win, win.
And then everybody’s like, ‘Okay, but what does winning look like?’ And we’ve never been honest about what winning looks like. I’m very honest about what winning looks like. Winning means preventing [a terrorist attack]. It’s preventing the ability of these people, who wake up every single day and want to kill us — and yes, we do go there so that they don’t come here, and I know you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard you say that — but it’s not.
Kirk challenged Crenshaw’s assertions, and noted that terrorists from Saudi Arabia committed the 9/11 attacks – not anyone from Afghanistan.
“Who was behind the Pensacola shooting?” Kirk said to Crenshaw. “I mean, to your argument, why don’t we go to Saudi Arabia and make sure they don’t come here?”
“Well, we are in Saudi Arabia,” he replied.
“We sell them arms,” Kirk said. “We trained their pilots. We don’t have a military occupation of Saudi Arabia.”
Crenshaw did not do a good job of countering Kirk’s points, but rather defaulted back to his stock talking points about generic terrorists.
“These people do wake up every single day, and they think of ways to kill us, and this happened well before 9/11, this happened well after 9/11,” Crenshaw said. “If they’re not thinking of ways to attack the base, where a bunch of armed guys like me are waiting for them, they’re thinking of ways to attack the homeland.”
Crenshaw is McCain’s heir, desperately trying to instill the Bush-era globalist mindset within Trump’s “America First” constituency.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
