    I guess in his senile state, he's forgotten about how a few months ago the US signed a treaty with the Taliban and gave up after 20 years of fighting and the might of the US military including all their tanks, jets, and drones being unable to overthrow cave people with 60 year old AKs.
    The Taliban or whoever haven't overthrown a tyrannical US-regime neither, just got them to withdraw. But then there wasn't that much at stake, too.
    War within the US between tyrannical Biden-regime and US-dissidents is another matter though. It's the regime's castle at stake and then a lot of US-citizens still may view the Presidency as legitimate. Ultimately I'd guess it isn't the lack of guns that will let the Dem-Regime prevail, but the lack of morale fibre of the US-dissidents. Going to war against an institution controlling an army of 2 mil with the most potent equipment in the world at its disposal is no walk in the park and a lot of US-dissidents may quickly start missing beer, barbecue and ball games. We had a similar problem not so long ago.

    There's no comparison between US dissidents and the Taleban. The Taleban are tough mountain people who have been at this game for generations. Team USA are weekend larpers with toys who, unlike the Taleban, are not about to go all in, for decades if necessary, for their freedom.

    A little protest or skirmish won't cut it. Government, the MIC, the Corporations, Media, Academia and Courts are firmly under Bolshevik control, regardless of whether Democrats or Republicans happen to be elected. Anybody can buy an AR-15 cosplay outfit and talk the talk but when it comes right down to it, next to none of them will walk the walk.

    As absurd as the situation is in the US, in the Western EU it's even worse already. The Bolsheviks are firmly in power in the US and EU and it's going to take a whole lot more than larping with AR's to remove them. Joe may be a dope but he wasn't completely wrong with his comparison.

    Patriotism is great, just in case I wasn't being clear (alhough I'm pretty sure you caught my drift) patriotism isn't the problem.

    The problem is that ZOG who controls the USA (and EU) fools the gullible public into equating patriotism with ZOG's own agendas and goals. Virtually every, if not every foreign war and entanglement the US involves itself in today and since even before WW2 has little to nothing to do with serving and protecting the US public and everything to do with serving and enriching ZOG and partners.

    People get fooled into believing service is for the greater good of the country, that service is some kind of duty. The problem is that they don't serve the country. They serve ZOG and the MIC.

    Trump, well, he's not worth wasting time on either although compared to all the other political animals on the scene he does at least distinguish himself by being slightly less rotten.

    Almost Overnight, Standards of Color-Blind Merit Tumble Across American Society

    A broad revolution is underway in the United States as traditional standards used to measure achievement and provide opportunity are being rejected by schools, corporations, and governments in favor of quotas based on race and gender.

    On taking office, President Biden signaled that the nation’s long-held principle of equality for all had come to an end, signing executive orders to advance racial equity "across the Federal Government” -- equity referring to the idea that merely treating everybody the same is not enough, and that an equal outcome for all people has to be the goal.

    Over the last few months, many Ivy League and flagship state universities have moved away from a seemingly neutral measure long used to assess applicants – standardized test scores – to give minorities a better shot at admissions.

    In May, Hewlett-Packard, the technology company with 50,000 employees worldwide, decreed that by 2030 half of its leadership positions and more than 30% of its technicians and engineers have to be women and that the number of minorities should “meet or exceed” their representation in the tech industry workforce.

    That same month, United Airlines announced that half of the 5,000 pilots it would train at its proprietary flight school between now and 2030 will be women or people of color, with scholarships provided by United and JPMorgan Chase helping with tuition. There was nothing in the United announcement showing that there were enough qualified blacks and women in the pipeline so that a black/female quota of 2,500 new pilots could be filled, and nothing about what the company would do if there weren't enough qualified candidates.

    Delta Airlines, Ralph Lauren, and Wells Fargo are among other major American companies to announce hiring quotas recently as a way to redress racial imbalances, according to Bloomberg News.

    These are just some of the many “woke” initiatives embraced by many of the pillars of American society in the year since social justice protests erupted across the country in response to the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.

    Supporters argue that racial preferences and quotas are necessary to end deeply entrenched disparities. Critics say that they are a new form of discrimination, no more justified than old forms that are widely rejected. And while the stated goal of affirmative action was to simply eliminate unfair discrimination, the equity movement is rooted in a far more expansive and pessimistic view of the United States as irredeemably white supremacist, a view meant to continually challenge American institutions and values.

    The rapid transition from equality of treatment to equality of outcomes tests one of the basic post-civil rights principles of American life, namely that the same standards should be applied to all people. Once a measure is applied, not to the unique individual but to that individual's group identity, the idea that there are neutral, common, universally applicable standards gives way to something else, something subjective and political, with different measures applied to different people, depending on their sex, race, or other characteristics.

    The issue of standards, moreover, is not just a matter of values or fairness. With the United States falling behind other countries in math and science, most notably China, standards are matters of competitiveness and national security -- even as the military, CIA and other federal agencies embrace equity.

    But discontent over the pace of racial progress, fueled in the past year by the Black Lives Matter movement, has led to an explicit rejection of meritocracy and a call for old standards to make way for new ones. Explaining the company’s adoption of quotas, Hewlett-Packard Chief Diversity Officer Lesley Slaton Brown said the COVID-19 epidemic and the George Floyd murder has “really allowed us to do the double-click down on racial equality and the systematic and structural discrimination that exists.”

    In the recent past, that effort often involved working with the existing ideological framework of equality of opportunity and merit to identify worthy candidates. Now, the trend is to reject and redefine those standards.

    “As a community, we need a more comprehensive framework for what constitutes 'best' in hiring faculty and staff,” Gregory Washington, the president of George Mason University in Virginia, wrote in an email sent recently to the entire school. Washington, who is GMU's first ever black president, denied that his call for greater diversity amounted to a quota system; instead, he said, “it is a recognition of the reality that our society's future lies in multicultural inclusion.”

    Certainly it is true that the American future is multicultural. Still, to say that the concept of “best” needs to be redefined in racial terms is already a significant departure from the idea of neutral standards. To go from there to the notion that meritocracy is a racist stratagem is a sea change, but there is a lot of evidence that that is exactly where society is going, in both small ways and large.

    In May, the Princeton University classics department announced that in an effort to combat “systemic racism,” it would no longer require classics majors to take Latin or Greek. This may be a good thing or a bad thing, but certainly it says that what was until recently a foundational qualification for the study of “the classics” -- the ability to read texts in their original language -- no longer applies, because some students, especially minority ones, didn't have the opportunity to study Latin or Greek in high school. But is it really OK for future professors of classics not to know Latin? Is that simply a new standard or a decline in standards?

    From a very different area of American life, none other than the very august American Medical Association announced in May a new Strategic Plan to Embed Racial Justice and Advance Health Equity in medical education and practice.

    The 80-page plan calls for, among other things, an expansion of “medical school and physician education to include equity, anti-racism, structural competency, public health and social sciences, critical race theory, and historical basis of disease.” It doesn't say whether adding those subjects to the medical school curriculum, which sounds a lot like instruction in the indelibly racist nature of America, will take away time from such other subjects as anatomy, microbiology, and genetics that are clearly more germane to the practice of medicine.

    “Scientific evidence tells us that racism has caused significant harm to people – and their health – throughout our nation’s history,” Gregory E. Harmon, M.D., the AMA's president elect, who is white, said in an email to RCI, explaining the initiative.

    Perhaps the most striking passages in the AMA document are those that have to do with equality and meritocracy, which it calls “malignant narratives.”

    “Seeking to treat everyone the 'same' ignores the historical legacy of disinvestment and deprivation,” the document says of equality, while meritocracy is “a narrative that attributes success and failure to individual abilities and merits. It does not address the centuries of unequal treatment that have historically robbed communities of the vital resources needed to thrive.”

    Some critics have noted that the Strategic Plan says nothing about competency; several doctors posting to the blog Legal Insurrection asked if members of the AMA would be comfortable allowing them or their families to be treated, as one of them put it, “by those who have MD attached to their names solely in the name of equity ... not because of meritocracy or qualification.”

    The AMA rejects that view. “Not only must we follow our oath to do no harm,” Harmon said in his email to RCI, “we must also prevent the harm that that inequity inflicts on communities and our nation.”

    There is, of course, some truth to the assertion that standards have been misused in the past. There was a time not that long ago when social connections, a genteel manner, even just having an Anglo-Saxon name, not to mention being white, were deemed to be qualifications in themselves, while to be black, female, or gay was disqualifying.

    But what the AMA document, like “woke” doctrine in general, ignores is that the national effort to redress past wrongs has been going on for a long time in American life, making the matter of racial advantage and disadvantage more a matter of multivariable calculus than simple arithmetic. To be sure, there are racial imbalances. Only 3.2% of senior corporate executives, for example, are black. It's easy to see the demand for this number to increase, but there are many questions, involving both practicality and principle, about the use of racial quotas to achieve that goal.



    Blacks are just 5% of those in engineering and sciences. How can that share rise dramatically?

    On the practical side are the people hurt by them, both those unprepared for the roles as well as the qualified passed over. There is also the question of whether efforts like those at United and HP may simply run into the inconvenient fact that, for many complicated reasons, there simply aren't enough qualified minority candidates around to meet goals for rapid increases in their representation.

    According to the National Science Foundation, black men and women, who are 12% of the general population, make up just 5% of working engineers -- this despite affirmative action programs and numerous other efforts over the years to recruit minorities into engineering programs in colleges and universities. How dramatic increases in a very short period can happen now remains unexplained.

    As for American medicine, it's been a very long time since it was a white male preserve, as just about any visit to a large urban hospital, with their many Filipino and Indian physicians both male and female, will show. For several years now, more women have been accepted to medical schools than men, but while the numbers of blacks going to medical school has also increased, only 5% of physicians in the country are black or African American.

    This is the case even though black students are now accepted into medical school at almost the same rate as whites, 41% of black applicants compared to 45% of whites. Medical schools, like other professional schools, have, moreover, been eager to increase these numbers for years, so that blacks, whites, and Asians are already being admitted under different criteria. In 2018, Princeton Review reports, blacks accepted at medical schools scored an average 505.7 on the MCAT, the standardized med school admission test – putting them in the 69th percentile of all test takers. By comparison, the average score for admitted whites was 512.2 (the 86th percentile) and 513.8 for Asians. Average undergraduate GPAs: 3.53 for blacks, 3.77 for both whites and Asians.

    The Strategic Plan offers no concrete suggestions for further increasing the numbers of blacks in medical school, and it makes no analysis of whether it's even possible to do that. Is there a pool of qualified candidates that, somehow, is not being considered? Should medical school admission committees admit some of the applicants rejected in the past, even though that would increase the gap in test scores and GPAs between them and other students? Will teaching critical race theory to existing medical students increase minority representation?

    Asked about medical school admissions, Harmon pointed to studies showing that medical students with “midrange” scores on the MCAT “mostly succeed in medical school,” though “there is a tendency to overlook these applicants in favor of those with higher scores.”

    The authors of the studies argue that admitting students with lower MCAT scores would “diversify the physician workforce.” But given that black students are already being admitted at a significantly lower standard, at least as defined by MCAT, than whites and Asians, how much lower can the standard go? The studies give no answer to that question.

    Partly, the new changing face of America into a predominant multicultural society will obviously change academia and hiring practices to MEET the new needs of nonwhite America. Literally, we are being replaced by nonwhites due to cheaper labor costs mainly and to changing preferences and demands from their Third World immigrants. Also, it is easier to control the masses of nonwhites over individualistic thinking types. Nonwhite immigrants don't want white doctors or salespeople to provide services or products to them and still prefer their own ethnic groups. So, whites will experience a new bias of hiring and a societal position as second class citizen with dwindling numbers.

    I'm not sure what the distributors of such rather harmless pictures are trying to achieve with this.
    You could post certified photos with Biden having some pedosex on them, the left won't botch. It would pearl of like rain on an oil jacket. The right may be outraged, but it would still work in Biden/Dems favour, since the result would be demoralisation given that they have a known pervert in the White House, but can do exactly zero about it.

    Rep. Ronny Jackson, ex-White House doc, predicts Biden will be forced to resign

    'Completely lost it!' Ex-WH doc-turned pol wants Biden to take cognitive exam 'now'

    Rep. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician-turned-congressman, says he’s “terrified for our country” in the wake of President Joe Biden’s disastrous town hall this week — and that he doubts whether the commander in chief has the cognitive ability to make it through a full term.

    “He’s completely LOST it!” Jackson (R-Tex.) tweeted Saturday, along with a video clip — recorded this week — in which Biden bizarrely answered a reporter’s question about defunding the police by claiming that Republicans accuse him of “sucking the blood out of kids.”

    “Needs a cognitive exam NOW!” Jackson posted.
