American counternarcotics policy in Afghanistan has been senseless, as growing opium poppies remains the only source of income that keeps rural areas alive. Meanwhile millions of US dollars pumped into the country end up in the pockets of warlords experts say.

The Establishment is setting up Donald Trump.
The mainstream media hates him. Hollywood hates him. The “Intellectual Yet Idiot” academia class hates him.
Most critically, the CIA hates him. So does the rest of the Deep State, or the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy. They did everything possible to stop Trump from taking office. None of it worked.
I think the CIA hates Trump for a very simple reason: he’s threatening to take away their livelihood.

Trump tweeted “Government is Not God” and he was right to point out the founding principles of our country in the Declaration of Independence.

Fewer people are getting married, and they’re inviting fewer guests.

You’re not the only one spending fewer summer weekends watching other people get married—but don’t worry, the weddings you’re still invited to might feel a little more special these days.
Fewer Americans are getting married, and the ones who still are have scaled back their weddings. Their nuptials are becoming smaller, though not necessarily cheaper, affairs.

Sharing is caring!
By Michael Snyder destroying the last chance that the Republicans in the Senate had to repeal Obamacare, John McCain has ensured that he will go down in history as a backstabbing traitor that cared nothing for true conservative values. For decades, RINOs like McCain have promised to uphold conservative values while campaigning, but once they have gotten into office they have betrayed us over and over again. How much more are we going to take before we say enough is enough? I hope that you will join me in my effort to remove every RINO from Congress. What John McCain has just done should make all of us absolutely sick. Thanks to him, Obamacare is going to remain the law of the land for the foreseeable future even though the Republicans have control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. If I go to Washington, I am going to declare war on RINOs like McCain, but the only way that will be possible is if thousands of good conservatives help fund this campaign. So far my campaign has created an enormous amount of buzz all over the state, but the only way that we are going to be able to capitalize on all of that buzz is if you all stand with me.
The Pentagon concludes that it no longer enjoys the luxury of global dominance. Is this the beginning of a new era?

Perhaps the only successful US military conquest in the last 20 years
While my interests by choice are business and the economic sphere of things, by necessity thinking on the body politic at times is useful if for no other reason but to take a step back and reassess my business viewpoints.
The other day I took a break from the FT, Economist and WSJ and read a new study released by the US Defense Department, “At Our Own Peril: DoD Risk Assessment in a Post-Primacy World”.
Nikki Haley receives much-needed how-to-bomb-Iran advice from seasoned neocon John Bolton
We are all deeply nostalgic for the days of yore—the days before Nikki Haley was muzzled by the State Department—when our favorite South Carolina peach made daily headlines with her barely literate, Facebook-rant diplomacy.
A federal sting reveals lax oversight in the Defense Department’s gear giveaway program.
By ELI HAGER
When you think of a federal sting operation involving weaponry and military gear, the Government Accountability Office doesn’t immediately jump to mind. The office is tasked with auditing other federal agencies to root out fraud and abuse, usually by asking questions and poring over paperwork.
This year, the agency went a little more cowboy. The GAO created a fictitious law enforcement agency — complete with a fake website and a bogus address that traced back to an empty lot — and applied for military-grade equipment from the Department of Defense.
And in less than a week, they got it.
