This guy can’t be certain which way up is.
One this is certain is all his alleged hopes and dreams will be going free fall as in an elevator shaft with its cables severed.
He took 6 months off his duty as mayor to spend six months in Afghanistan.
That is someone who had political connections to arrange for such short duty, hey but apparently he needed it for crediblity in his twisted little mind.
Was he in the line of fire? Of course not.
Though billed as an infantry officer, he was anything but.
In his own words, “Intelligence, though, not fire power, is the weapon of choice in his line of work, he told The Tribune by phone this week from Afghanistan.”
He is currently deployed there for six months as part of a special unit of one.
The mayor left for the country in April and is set to return at the end of September.
He’s limited in what he can say about his mission.
“I can tell you that I’m working on the intersection of drugs, finance and terrorism,” Buttigieg said, commenting for the first time in any detail on his work in the country.
“I’m assigned to a counterterrorism organization called the Afghan Threat Finance Cell,” he continued.
“My mission is to protect the homeland and target the most dangerous drug trafficking organizations in Afghanistan.”
A U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration-led unit, the cell investigates and disrupts financial networks that fund the insurgency in Afghanistan.
Partner agencies include the Treasury and Department of Defense.
Buttigieg said he could not comment further on his mission, only that he works long hours.
Not even his family know for sure what he was doing. (Source)
For someone who couldn’t say much, he was an open book.
Ask a special operator what they were doing or anything about their mission and you will likely draw a blank stare, then not further contact.
The New Republic
For the unknowing: It’s a bigger leftist purveyor on nonsense a pure partisan progressive politics than it was when it was first published.
The New Republic is an American magazine of commentary on politics and the arts, published since 1914, with influence on American political and cultural thinking.
Founded in 1914 by leaders of the progressive movement, it attempted to find a balance between a humanitarian progressivism and an intellectual scientism, ultimately discarding the latter.
The only time they portray a member of the right, in this case, President Donald Trump is in their attempt to eviscerate him.
Through the 1980s and ’90s, the magazine incorporated elements of “Third Way” neo-liberalism and conservatism.
In 2014, two years after Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook, purchased the magazine, he ousted its editor and attempted to remake its format, operations and partisan stances, provoking the resignation of the majority of its editors and writers.
In early 2016, Hughes announced he was putting the magazine up for sale, indicating the need for “new vision and leadership.”
It was sold in February 2016 to Win McCormack.
The magazine charges twenty dollars per month and it’s a fair bet that those who buy it either don’t understand it or subscribe to impress their friends.
Like the New York Times, it makes a suitable birdcage liner.
Am I suggesting that the New Republic many not be worth reading?
You vapid over educated fool: Lesson one: The U.S. is not a democracy if it were you would be among the first to be shipped out.
The U.S. is a constitutionally driven Republic, something the leftist Ivy League Universites neglected to teach you, along with those who are being brainwashed as current undergraduate as well gradiate schools.
No, actually I’m being emphatic about it, save the subscription fee, turn on MSNBC and watch Rachel Maddow in stead.
