Our foreign policy is being led by Antony Blinken, and his wars in Afghanistan and Ukraine have been disasters. What motivates him?
He tells a personal story about his family and the Jewish Holocaust, and it is full of lies, according to this article. I do not know what to make of it, and I am not sure it is even legal to have a public discussion of it.
I am more interested in why we have such a destructive Ukraine policy. Biden and Blinken started the war, by inviting Ukraine into NATO and then daring Russia to do something about it. Then Biden and Blinken started a policy of supplying Ukraine with just enough weapons to get themselves destroyed.
Vivek Ramaswamy said:
“Am I religious? Yes, I am. I am Hindu. I am not Christian. And we are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values,” he said in an interview with NewsNation that aired last week. “But here is what I can say with confidence: I share those same values in common. I believe I live by those values more so than many self-proclaimed Christian politicians.”No, the USA was not founded on Judeo-Christian values. The founders were Christians and Deists, but not Jews. No Jewish values involved.
I heard him comment that Christians might not vote for him because Hindus will not make it to Heaven. Actually I don't think that is an issue. The issue is his underlying values. The President has immense power and can start a war. Christianity teaches a set of values that most voters are comfortable with. Secular Jews like Blinken have another set of values, and I don't like them. Other religions are probably even worse. Nobody was sure about Barack Obama's religion, and look what we got. Mitt Romney claimed to be a Christian, but he was really a Mormon, and had strange values. Ramaswamy seems like a good guy, but I do not know how to assess his Hinduism.
