Pinkerton: Democrats Confront the Mysteries of Afghanistan as They Run Interference for Biden’s Debacle

The Last Mistake in Afghanistan?  Probably a lot of Americans thought that the death of 13 American servicemen and women at the Kabul airport on August 26 would be the last tragic debacle of our Afghanistan misadventure.  Indeed, perhaps some Americans felt a little better when they heard the news that the U.S. military had…

Pinkerton: Five Hard Lessons from America’s 20-Year Journey Since 9/11

The Road to Here After 9/11, it seemed that we were in a battle against evil. And without a doubt, Osama Bin Laden was evil. And yet strangely, the American government chose not to focus on him or even on al Qaeda. Instead, the U.S. became engaged, embroiled, and then quagmired in Afghanistan and Iraq.  In the…

Pinkerton: Time for the U.S. Government to Keep Faith with Those Who Do and Die

October 23, 1983 Thirty-eight years ago, a suicide bomber stunned America into defensive action.   I’m referring, of course, to the 1983 terrorist truck-bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon that killed 241 American servicemen.  I was living in Washington, D.C., at the time, and I remember that within hours — as most of us…

Pinkerton: 6 Things Joe Biden Could Do About Covid if He Is Serious

Joe Biden has been doing everything he can to encourage Americans to get vaccinated and to eradicate the coronavirus pandemic. Or has he? Speaking from the White House on August 3, the president sure seemed emphatic: “The best line of defense against the virus is the vaccine.  It’s as simple as that.  Period.” Tightening his jaw to…

Pinkerton: The Case for Demanding Covid-19 Reparations from Communist China

What Price Covid?  How much has the Covid-19 pandemic cost the United States? A lot. And if, in fact, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is responsible for the virus, then maybe the PRC should be liable for its costs.  As of this writing, the American death toll from Covid stands at more than 628,000. And according to…

Pinkerton: NYT Compares Biden’s Promised ‘Green Jobs’ to ‘Grueling’ Low-Wage Amazon and Uber Gigs

The Green Illusion Now they tell us.  That is, now they are telling us that “green jobs” won’t be such good jobs after all.   We get this blunt assessment from the New York Times, the most important newspaper in the country and without a doubt the numero uno medium by which Democrats communicate with…

Pinkerton: What Inflation Does and What to Do About It –

For much of the Biden presidency, the Main Stream Media-approved economic experts have been nonchalant about inflation.    Even as prices were rising—gasoline, for instance, jumped by about 20 percent in the first two months of the Biden presidency—the public was advised to stay calm.   Sample March 10 headline from the reliably pro-Biden New York…

Pinkerton: Dr. Fauci, Meet Dr. Frankenstein – Did ‘Gain of Function Research’ Create a Monster?

Gain of Fear   In the last few weeks, we’ve all learned a new phrase from the eerie realm of virology: “gain of function research.” Abbreviated as GOFR, it’s defined as “any field of medical research that alters an organism or disease in a way that increases  pathogenesis, transmissibility, or host range (the types of hosts that a microorganism can infect).” …

Pinkerton: John Kerry Isn’t the First Massachusetts Democrat Accused of Assisting an Enemy

The news about John Kerry is startling. The former U.S. senator from Massachusetts and secretary of state, now President Joe Biden’s climate czar, is accused of leaking sensitive—possibly classified—information to an enemy power, Iran.  The accusation surfaced in a news story about the supposedly off-the-record comments by Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, made in March…
