Erik Prince: We Need A Douglas MacArthur

Published

Blackwater founder Erik Prince argues for the need for a single steadfast U.S. military leader in Afghanistan to end the decade and a half of rampant spending and underwhelming results.

“Afghanistan is an expensive disaster for America. The Pentagon has already consumed $828 billion on the war, and taxpayers will be liable for trillions more in veterans’ health-care costs for decades to come. More than 2,000 American soldiers have died there, with more than 20,000 wounded in action. For all that effort, Afghanistan is failing. The terrorist cohort consistently gains control of more territory, including key economic arteries,” Prince writes in his Wall Street Journal op-ed “The MacArthur Model for Afghanistan.”

“As it is, there are too many cooks in the kitchen—and the cooks change shift annually. The coalition has had 17 different military commanders in the past 15 years, which means none of them had time to develop or be held responsible for a coherent strategy. A better approach would resemble Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s leadership of postwar Japan,” Prince argues.

Prince’s five-step solution for Afghanistan is a fascinating read from one of the closest observers and participants in American foreign policy. Prince has never shied away from a gunfight. He confirmed to this reporter at the beginning of the campaign that Hillary Clinton’s U.S. consulate in Benghazi was responsible for buying back some loose weapons following a program in which the United States armed the Syrian rebels (ISIS, of course, emerged from the Syrian rebellion, where it enjoyed Obama administration support in its early stages).

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

on

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
