‘Make America Safe Again’ Highlights What Is Wrong with U.S. Foreign Policy

1437894_1280x720

The Republican National Convention was held this week, and while your newsfeed was probably filled with Ted Cruz and Melania Trump, there were a lot of other notable speeches, some of which fell under the theme “Make America Safe Again,” and served as a reminder of what is wrong with the United States’ foreign policy.

From Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst who said, “According to the FBI, ISIS is present in all 50 states,” to retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn who said, “The radicalization of Islam and its barbaric cause that uses modernity to influence potentially millions around the world to join their cause should keep us all up at night,” and “we must take seriously the possibility that these enemies have weapons of mass destruction and intend to use them,” the sense of fear-mongering was strong on the first night of the RNC.

So, they’re saying that America isn’t safe, and yet around the same time that these speeches were given, Monday night. A United States airstrike hit a Syrian village killing 117 people. Reports from the activists on the ground claim that at least 73 of the dead were civilians, and 35 of those civilians were children.

“The death toll is 117. We could document [the identity of] 73 civilians including 35 children and 20 women. The rest of the dead bodies are charred, or have been reduced to shreds,” Adnan al-Housen, an activist from Manbij, told The Guardian.

Then on Tuesday, a video was posted online showing a group of Syrian rebels beheading a 12-year-old Palestinian boy. These rebels are from the Nour al-Din al-Zinki Movement, one of the many groups who have received funding and training from the United States, and they are further proof that the method of backing Syrian rebels to defeat ISIS has the opposite effect.

The thing is, if the GOP wanted to make America safe, they would realize that using a barrage of drone strikes that lead to civilian causalities and spending billions of dollars to fund Syrian rebels aren’t working. Many Republicans are quick to blame President Obama and to say that Hillary Clinton would continue his policies.

While Republicans are not wrong.

I would think that if Republicans were looking for an answer to the problem, then Republicans would have to admit that what made America “unsafe” started long before the Obama administration.

And was a result of years of the United States overthrowing dictators in the Middle East and acting as there wouldn’t be consequences.

Bernie Sanders Becomes Clinton Campaign’s Latest Distraction

Sanders-Clinton

Bernie Sanders announced Tuesday that he is adding his name to the list of people supporting Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, and his timing could not have been any more perfect for the Clinton campaign.

“I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton…and why she must become our next president,” Sanders said at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.

Sanders claimed that he is endorsing Clinton because she is the presumptive Democratic nominee and because he believes it is the only way to stop Donald Trump. However, his endorsement also occurred at the same time as the House Judiciary Committee meeting in which Attorney General Loretta Lynch was scheduled to testify about why she chose not to prosecute Clinton for sending classified information to an unsecured email server.

“Last week, I met with Director Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted that investigation. I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, yearlong investigation be closed and no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation,” Lynch said. “While I understand that this investigation has generated significant public interest, as attorney general it would be inappropriate for me to comment further on the underlying thoughts of the investigation, or the legal basis for the team’s recommendation.”

Although Lynch did not give any real insight into her decision during the hearing, one thing is clear: The Clinton campaign is using Sanders as a distraction.

With the Clinton email scandal dominating headlines over the last week, it seems only right that she would look for a way to deflect the attention. Now, in all of the upcoming media interviews that Sanders does, it is likely that everyone will ask Sanders why he had this sudden change of heart, and he will probably use the time as an excuse to rally against Donald Trump.

However, any loyal Bernie Sanders supporter knows that he has already laid out several reasons why we should not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Here are just a few:

“You’ve received over $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year. I find it very strange that a major financial institution that pays $5 billion in fines for breaking the law, not one of their executives is prosecuted, while kids who smoke marijuana get a jail time.” — Bernie Sanders, Jan. 2016

“Secretary Clinton has chosen another path in order to raise her campaign funds… she has established a number of Super PACs. In the last filing report, her largest Super PAC reported $25 million coming from powerful special interests, including $15 million from Wall Street.” — Bernie Sanders, March 2016

“Well, when you vote for virtually every trade agreement that has cost the workers of this country millions of jobs, when you support and continue to support fracking, despite the crisis that we have in terms of clean water, and essentially, when you have a super PAC that is raising tens of millions of dollars from every special interest out there, including 15 million from Wall Street, the American people do not believe that that is the kind of president that we need to make the changes in America to protect the working families of this country.” — Bernie Sanders, April 2016
