Since Brexit and the election of President Trump, Populism has become the new buzzword. For the globalist liberals, any talk of Nationalism or Populism is dangerous because it is a threat to their power. Recently Hiliary Clinton weighed in on Populism.
In her interview with The Guardian, Clinton referred to the massive migration which has inflicted untold damage on Europe. She stated, “I admire the very compassionate and generous approaches taken…” She went on to say that now they need to be more selective when it comes to migration. That even she would concede this show just shows how strong the populist uprising has been throughout the Western Hemisphire.
Notable: She says this not because Western Civilization is in peril (which it is) but due to the rise of Populism. Populism and Nationalism are taboo to neoliberals and Neoconservatives alike.
For globalists, Populism is their worst nightmare. Clinton states, “If don’t deal with the migration issue it will roil the body politic.” In other words Sharia and violation of the law of the land are no big deal to people like Hillary. It’s populism that’s the real danger.
This is a refrain we hear again and again. Right wing Populism and Nationalism are a threat to democracy so say the globalists. They parrot this almost as thoughtlessly as their refrain that diversity is strength.
According to Time magazine, Barack Obama had warned in Canada in 2017 of the rise of Populism and made the absurd argument that nationalism is associated with the rolling back of people’s rights. He failed to mention that nationalism enhances citizens’ rights. It may roll back the rights of illegals and invaders but it enhances the rights of lawful citizens.
Baghdad Bombings Could Give Biden Administration Excuse to Increase US Presence in Iraq
The first major Baghdad bombings in three years happen on Joe Biden’s first full day as president.
Two suicide bombings rocked a marketplace in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 32 people and wounding over 100. As of now no one has claimed responsibility, although Iraqi military leaders suspect the Islamic State, the paramilitary group often referred to as “ISIS” in years past.
Major General Tahsin al-Khafaji said that the first suicide bomber shouted in the marketplace that he was not feeling well, and when a group of people drew near him, he detonated an explosive belt he was wearing. Not long after that, a second suicide bomber then detonated his own belt several feet away.
This was Baghdad’s first major bombing in three years, and interestingly enough it came on the first full day of Joe Biden’s presidency. Even the Associated Press pointed out that “many questioned the timing of the attack.”
“The US-led coalition recently ceased combat activities and is gradually drawing down its troop presence in Iraq,” the article reads.
The Jerusalem Post also writes that the bombings provide Biden with “an early opportunity to show US support for Iraq.”
“Biden has said that the US is ‘back’ and the world can expect the US to care again about foreign policy and work multilaterally to solve problems,” said the Post.
All this leads many to believe that the Biden administration will once again increase the US presence in Iraq, thereby dragging us deeper into a situation that the Trump administration had been eager to get out of.
This is not the first time that a Middle Eastern tragedy has coincided with a change of power. In March of 2017, two months after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Assad government in Syria allegedly used chemical weapons against its own people, leading to international outcry and the Trump administration’s unilateral decision to launch an April 7 missile strike on the Syrian government’s Shayrat Airbase.
Bombings and attacks have also been known to happen shortly after the US announces commitments to scale back military operations.
Perhaps groups like the Islamic State feel emboldened by such announcements and power changes. In any case, the military-industrial complex often uses such attacks to justify never-ending involvement in the Middle East. As of now, however, it still remains to be seen what they will do as a result of Thursday’s bombings, if anything. Fingers crossed that it’s not much.
