Matt Kibbe is joined by Kelley Vlahos from the Quincy Institute and Matt Purple of the American Conservative for an emergency special edition of Kibbe on Liberty to sort out what is happening in Afghanistan and whether President Biden should be praised for ending the twenty-year conflict or condemned for mismanaging the withdrawal. Americans have voted for anti-war rhetoric in each of the last six presidential elections, and now at last they are seeing some results. Ending the war was never going to be pretty, but it was nevertheless necessary and long overdue.

On COI #150 the great Scott Horton returns to the show to discuss the collapse of America's sockpuppet government in Kabul. Scott explains how he seemed to be one of the only Afghan War analysts to correctly predict how quickly – and mostly bloodlessly – the Afghan government would collapse. He talks about the Taliban's gains in recent years and how they were primed to consolidate their power.  With the Taliban now in control of almost all of Afghanistan, some Afghans – and nearly all of the corporate media – believe the Taliban will return to their same harsh style of rule from the pre-9/11 era. However, Scott explains there are some reasons to be hopeful that the Taliban's rule may be less brutal – although still horrible. Since taking power the Taliban has made an effort to create the appearance that women will be accepted into society and the government. The group has said they are not seeking reprisals and Kabul, at the moment, remains calm under their rule.  In response to the withdrawal, the hawks' favorite trope has been to claim the Taliban takeover makes the world more dangerous for Americans. Scott debunks the myth that the Taliban offers ‘safe haven' to groups that want to murder Americans. However, less than a year ago, the US was backing the Taliban with drone strikes against ISIS-K, with soldiers even dubbing themselves the “Taliban's air force.” Reports claiming an al-Qaeda presence in Afghanistan are nothing more than hearsay.  A second tactic being used by the corporate press is to spin the rise of the Taliban into a threat to American hegemony over Russia and China. Scott dismantles the argument that Chinese influence in Afghanistan is a concern for Americans. Scott also discussed the issue of Uyghur jihadists who take refuge in Afghanistan. Kyle rounds out the show by asking Scott if he thinks America's war in Afghanistan is over. Scott explains that the US does not have the ability to redeploy occupation forces to the country. The US would also struggle to carry out special forces missions because of Afghanistan's isolated location, though Scott says the US may try to continue CIA operations to undermine the Taliban.  Scott Horton is editorial director of Antiwar.com, director of the Libertarian Institute, host of Antiwar Radio on Pacifica, 90.7 FM KPFK in Los Angeles, California and podcasts the Scott Horton Show from ScottHorton.org. He's the author of the 2021 book Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terrorism, the 2017 book, Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan, and the editor of the 2019 book, The Great Ron Paul: The Scott Horton Show Interviews 2004–2019. He's conducted more than 5,500 interviews since 2003. Scott's articles have appeared at Antiwar.com, The American Conservative magazine, the History News Network, The Future of Freedom, The National Interest and the Christian Science Monitor. He also contributed a chapter to the 2019 book, The Impact of War. Scott lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, investigative reporter Larisa Alexandrovna Horton.

On this edition of Parallax Views, we begin a series of conversations with different guests about the past 20 years of U.S. military adventurism and what comes next for both the U.S. and Afghanistan in the coming years now that the Taliban has retaken the country. First in our series is Doug Bandow, former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan and a regular writer at Antiwar.Com, the Cato Institute, and The American Conservative. We discuss the lessons that could be learned from the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan as well as whether the withdrawal represents a "Saigon Moment" for the Biden administration. Additionally, we discuss where the D.C. foreign policy Blob may go from here, why Doug supports the withdrawal, and much, much more.

Saving Elephants | Millennials defending & expressing conservative values

Often the highest praise we can offer a bright, promising student is “you'll go far”.  Americans have long associated success with striking out on one's own and heading for greener pastures.  But is this transient attitude conducive to the long-term health of local communities?  What happens to the places we leave behind and what impact does that have on us?   Saving Elephants host Josh Lewis is joined by Gracy Olmstead, author of Uprooted: Recovering the Legacy of the Places We've Left Behind.  Their conversation delves into how Americans have historically thought of leaving or sticking with the communities of their upbringing and how American practices don't always align with American values.  Gracy offers her thoughts on what wisdom Alexis de Tocqueville and Wendell Berry have to share and how the pains of homesickness might point us towards an understanding of what parts of the past are worth bringing into the future.   About Gracy Olmstead Gracy Olmstead is a writer and journalist located outside Washington, D.C.  Her work has appear in The American Conservative, The Washington Times, the Idaho Press Tribune, The Federalist, The Week, National Review, and Acculturated.    Gracy's book examines the heartbreaking consequences of uprooting—for both her hometown of Emmett, Idaho, and for the greater heartland of America.  Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Uprooted wrestles with the questions of what we owe the places we come from and what we are willing to sacrifice for profit and progress.    You can follow Gracy on Twitter @GracyOlmstead   Listener Mail At the end of the episode, Josh responds to a listener's question about the recent debate on the Right regarding whether Viktor Orbán policies in Hungary are worth emulating in the United States to effectively engage in the culture wars.

Scott and Daniel Larison discuss the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and what it means for America's stance toward Eastern Europe. The main issue with the German pipeline, Larison explains, is that it will allow Western Europe to buy Russian natural gas without having to deal with Ukrainian transit fees. Ukraine has portrayed the pipeline—and the fact that the U.S. is allowing it to happen—as a betrayal by the West, and has lobbied for sanctions on Germany. Larison is relieved that the U.S. government is backing down from its opposition to the pipeline, because he sees it as a sign that it won't risk jeopardizing its relationships with countries like Germany and France in the future for the sake of the much more significant issue of Ukraine's NATO membership, which Germany and France oppose.

On Conflicts of Interest #144, retired Army Major and Afghan War vet Danny Sjursen returns to the show to discuss Biden's declared end to the Afghan War. Danny explains how the war has changed under the current administration. He attempts to tackle the tough question: “Is the war actually ending?” Danny and Kyle break down the factions in the Biden administration resisting the president's push to end the war. Danny compares Biden's struggle to that of Obama and Trump, who both attempted to limit or end the war but were unable to do so – at least in part – because their employees undermined their efforts.  Danny discusses how the Afghan War is evolving. He breaks down the country's ethnic groups and explains why there is no way to partition the country. Danny tells some stories from his experience in Afghanistan and why our nation-building effort has failed.  Danny debunks key points being made by the hawks to justify the continued occupation and bombing of Afghanistan. Danny looks at the human rights abuses and war crimes of the US and Afghan militaries. Using his own experiences in Afghanistan, Danny explains why the US cannot improve the lives of Afghans with troops or bombs.  Danny concludes the show by discussing how his fellow veterans have reacted to the end of the war. While there is a wide range of opinion, Danny argues the vet community is actually MORE against the war than American civilians.  Danny Sjursen is a retired U.S. Army officer, the director of the Eisenhower Media Network (EMN), a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP), contributing editor at Antiwar.com, and co-hosts the podcast “Fortress on a Hill.” His work has appeared in the NY Times, LA Times, The Nation, The Hill, Salon, The American Conservative, and Mother Jones, among other publications.

Who knew that that hottest new thing in the early 21st century would be an old thing—the nation state? Nationalism acquired a foul odor in the 20th century, but ever since Brexit and Trump upset the cosmopolites from Berkeley to Brussels, the idea of nationalism has crept back into favor, at least with many conservatives. I’ve written my own short overview of the issue a couple years ago now, but was delighted to spend some time talking with Samuel Goldman of George Washington University about his new book, After Nationalism: Being American in an Age of Division. Sam offers three portals into thinking about the character of American nationalism, and ends up settling on roughly the same answer I do—that a sensible American nationalism is best anchored in the creedal principles of the country, including especially the Constitution and all that has gone into our constitutional traditions. Needless to say, this legacy is under massive attack today. Sam is the executive director of the John L. Loeb, Jr. Institute for Religious Freedom and director of the Politics & Values Program at George Washington University. His first book, God's Country: Christian Zionism in America, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2018. In addition to his academic research, Goldman is literary editor of Modern Age: A Conservative Quarterly and a contributing editor at The American Conservative. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications.

Barbara formerly wrote for The American Conservative and is now writing for the Quincy Institute's Responsible Statecraft publication. This is a bit of a cross-partisan conversation w/ Barbara coming from a more conservative background and your host coming from a more progressive background. It's not a debate, even on the contentious issue of the border, but an attempt to find areas of commonality (in relation to the border that comes about in recognizing the U.S.'s complicity in the problems faced by countries like Guatemala and Mexico vis-a-vis our foreign policy and the War on Drugs as well as criticism of Trump's policies on the border, horror at the kids in cages stories that have surfaced, etc.). You may be surprised by some of Barbara's views depending on what your conception of a conservative is. We delve into issues like racism, U.S. policy towards Cuba, memes about Venezuela and socialism, Iran, sanctions, the Cold War posturing over China and Russia, the "international rules based order", entangling alliances, the military industrial complex,

Daniel Larison talks Israel-Palestine. He takes on the common straw man argument that Israel "has a right to defend itself" from the belligerence of its neighbors. In the abstract, of course, every sovereign nation should have the right to self-defense; the problem is that this argument doesn't take any of the history of the conflict into account. The Hamas rocket attacks, Larison explains, have been a response to raids on the al-Aqsa Mosque, which were themselves a reaction to Palestinian protests in solidarity with victims of Israeli settlements. And besides, Israel only pretends that the Palestinians are "their neighbors" when there's fighting—the rest of the time Palestine is just territory that in fact is being occupied by the Israeli government.

Washington and Paris, who propped up the late president for decades despite credible allegations of election-rigging and severe political repression, are likely to continue their support for the Chadian state. Danny is a retired US Army Major, senior fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP), contributing editor at Antiwar.com and director of the new Eisenhower Media Network (EMN). His work has appeared in the New York Times, the LA Times, the Nation, Huff Post, the Hill, Salon, the American Conservative, Mother Jones, Scheer Post and Tom Dispatch, among other publications. He served combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and later taught history at West Point. He is the author of a memoir and critical analysis of the Iraq War, 'Ghostriders of Baghdad: Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge.'

Kelley Vlahos joins Tim to talk about how big tech companies are starting to use your data to grade you in ways that may surprise and shock you. The focus of our discussion is your Social Credit Score and how China may be illustrating just how alarming its applications can be. Kelley is a senior advisor at the Quincy Institute and editorial director at Responsible Statecraft. She's written about this population monitoring tool that before now was unthinkable in America. That's the focus of this episode. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Social_Credit_Score_auphonic.mp3 Anyone who buys a car or a house or wants a new credit card is familiar with the financial credit process. You have to build up a track record of paying off your debts in order to obtain good financial credit. Financial credit enables you to borrow money. A bad financial credit rating can be used by banks and lenders to deny you a loan, which means you can't buy that house, that car, or get that credit card. Until now, that was the only credit rating you needed to worry about. But in subtle ways, another credit rating may be creeping into your daily life you may not be so aware of. It's called a Social Credit Score. It's essentially a profile that rates people for better or worse based on everything they do. Every place they go, every rideshare they take, every destination they travel to, every book they buy, every membership, every donation, everything they post online, and, of course, their Internet search history. Here are a couple simple examples. Every time you take an Uber rideshare, your driver rates you according to a star system. If the driver likes you, you get more stars. If the driver doesn't like you, you get fewer stars. What you have to do to be liked is up to the driver, not you. On social media, you learn what information you're allowed to share and that information – even if it's legal and non-offensive - that will get you suspended or banned.

Donald Trump was the fourth member of the baby boomer generation to be elected president, after Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The Senate majority leader, Chuck Schumer, is a boomer. Chief Justice John Roberts is a boomer. The Federal Reserve chair, Jerome Powell, is a boomer. President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, were born a few years too early to officially qualify as boomers, but they’re close. We’re living in the world the boomers and nearly boomers built, and are still building.This is not, to younger Americans, a comfort. One 2018 poll found that just over half of millennials said that boomers made things worse for their generation; only 13 percent said they made things better. Then there was the rise of the “OK Boomer” meme in 2019, an all-purpose dismissal of boomer politics and rhetoric. But the boomers are a vast group, as are all generations. So is this a useful category for political argument? And even if it is, what, precisely, is it that the boomers did wrong?Jill Filipovic is a journalist, former lawyer and the author of “OK Boomer, Let’s Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind,” a primarily economic critique of the boomer generation from the left. Helen Andrews is a senior editor at The American Conservative and author of “Boomers: The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster,” a searing cultural critique of the boomers from the right.Filipovic and Andrews, both of whom are millennials (as am I), agree that the boomers left our generation worse off; but they disagree on just about everything else, which makes this conversation all the more interesting. We discuss the value of generational analysis, the legacy of the sexual revolution, the impact of boomer economic policies, the decline of the nuclear family, the so-called millennial sex recession, the millennial affordability crisis, the impact of pornography, how much the critique of the boomers is really a critique of technological change and much more.References: American Compass survey on family preferences "The share of Americans not having sex has reached a record high"  by Christopher Ingraham "The Rise of Childless America"  by Lyman Stone Jill’s recommendations: The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher LaschCan't Even by Anne Helen PetersenGoodnight Moon by Margaret Wise BrownHelen’s recommendations: A Tale of Two Utopias by Paul Berman Coming of Age on Zoloft by Katherine SharpeA Book of Americans by Stepehen Vincent Benét Thoughts?
