    Just between you and me Billy, I don't hate anything.

    I need to give you credit for something and I'm being serious. You're much more honest than SSG. You don't really lie about anything, rather, you just refuse to answer before it gets to that point. SSG will lie straight to your face. That's for your honesty on this subject.


    I'm curious, what made America a terrorist nation and what changed to make you change your mind?

    The US terrorised South America for many years. They would get rid of one leader and install their own puppet.
    I'm not sure what you are referring to about changing my mind

    Maybe there isn't anything down there that they want anymore.
    It's not really a question for me.

    So, you disagree with Omar that America is currently a terrorist nation? Yes? No?

    Biden administration announces plans to strengthen critical supply chains


    The Biden administration announced on a series of steps designed to strengthen critical U.S. supply chains, building up domestic manufacturing capabilities for key products and addressing existing vulnerabilities.

    President Joe Biden in February ordered a 100-day interagency review of domestic supply chains.

    The outcome of this review and the resulting policy recommendations make up a new report totaling several hundred pages, due to be released on Tuesday.

    The report’s initial recommendations focus on four products critical to the U.S. economy: large capacity lithium batteries, rare earth minerals, semiconductors and active pharmaceutical ingredients.



    • Large capacity lithium batteries: The Department of Energy is aiming to release a 10-year plan to develop a domestic lithium battery supply chain capable of producing the batteries that power electric vehicles. The agency’s Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program will distribute $17 billion in an effort to support new research and manufacturing efforts in the United States.
    • Rare earth minerals: The Department of Interior will lead a task force to identify sites where critical minerals could be produced and processed in the United States.” The report said the U.S. will develop the capacity for “sustainable production, refining, and recycling” of the 17 rare earth metals used in cellphones, cars and magnets, while meeting high environmental standards.
    • Semiconductors: As the nation grapples with a chip shortage that has idled major auto manufacturing plants, the White House said it will work with the private sector to increase supply-chain transparency.
    • Advanced pharmaceutical ingredients: The Department of Health and Human Services will use authority granted under the Defense Production Act to commit approximately $60 million to “develop novel platform technologies to increase domestic manufacturing capacity for API.”

    In addition to these steps, designed to boost supplies of specific products, the administration also announced several broader initiatives.

    To help train the workers that will be needed to staff these new projects, the White House will announce $100 million in additional grants to support state-led apprenticeship expansion efforts. The grants will be administered by the Department of Labor.

    The Department of Energy will announce a new policy that requires awardees of DOE research and development grants to “substantially manufacture those products in the United States.”

    Along with these efforts to bolster domestic supply chains, the Biden administration will also announce new steps to combat “unfair foreign trade practices,” which it says have contributed to the erosion of supply chains around the world.

    One of these will be the creation of a “trade strike force” led by the U.S. Trade Representative’s office. The strike force will aim to identify “unilateral and multilateral” enforcement actions the United States can take to punish countries that it believes are engaging in unfair trade practices. According to a senior administration official, the strike force will focus on developing U.S.-China trade policies.

    Guatemalans Tell Kamala Harris to 'Go Home': 'Trump Won'

    On Sunday, Vice President Kamala Harris made her first official trip abroad as a member of the Biden administration.
    Her travels led her south to Guatemala, where she is supposed to be working out solutions to the “root causes” of the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
    Evidently, some Guatemalans weren’t happy to see Harris.
    When she descended the steps of Air Force Two, Harris was greeted by a crowd of protesters outside the airport — many of them pro-Donald Trump activists — flashing signs that read “Kamala Mind Your Own Business,” “Kamala Go Home” and “Kamala, Trump Won.”
    Given the Biden administration’s coddling of illegal immigrants and its willingness to funnel cash to any country that claims need, you would have expected Harris to have be met with pro-illegal immigration signs and fawning pro-Biden activists.

    As a group called Society in Action, which protested outside the airport, told El Faro, a Central American newspaper based in El Salvador, “We’re not against Kamala Harris’s diplomatic visit, but rather her interference and blackmail in return for aid.”
    One of the demonstrators continued: “We’re against [the Biden administration’s] agenda of imposing the LGBTQ, pro-abortion ideology. In Guatemala we’re pro-life.”

    As it turns out, about 87 percent of the Guatemalan population was Christian in 2016, according to polling cited by the U.S. State Department.
    Christians believe in the inherent value of human life. We know that all humans are created in the image of God and endowed with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    It follows that a country of Christians wouldn’t be on board with a woman’s “right” to choose to kill a baby in the womb.
    With regard to the bribery being sold as humanitarian aid, it seems that many Guatemalans just want equality of opportunity, individual freedom and to be left alone by Democrats — which makes them like many Americans.

    But, furthermore, why would a country whose residents believe in the intrinsic value of human life and individual freedom buy into the Biden administration’s militantly anti-scientific, anti-freedom LGBT agenda?
    There is something to be said for tolerance of people who don’t seem to fit in neatly with everyone else.
    But that is different from ignoring the biological markers between male and female to instead effectively mandate that sex is determined by features of the personality — and then cracking down on individual and religious freedom based on this anti-scientific nonsense.

    If the Biden administration had its druthers, religious Americans would no doubt be forced to participate in activities they believe to be sinful. Schools would be teaching children anti-scientific garbage about pregnant men and “people with vulvas.”
    Free citizens with an innate penchant for mouthing off at authority would be compelled by their government to use certain pronouns in relation to others.

    In the same way that France wants leftism to stay in American universities, many Guatemalan people would prefer that “woke-ism” remain an American problem.
    And the truth is that the spread of ideological leftism does need to be confined to the United States, where it should be defeated.
    This all leaves a final question: Why is the vice president of the United States in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. southern border, where the crisis is occurring and Americans are hurting because of it?
    The answer is that the Biden administration has painted itself into a corner.

    The best solutions to the illegal immigration crisis happen to be fortifying the border, prosecuting and deporting illegal immigrants, and removing incentives for criminal border crossings.
    These are all Trump administration solutions that would work to solve the problem, but they fly in the face of the Biden agenda, which is to be anti-Trump.
    Democrats have decided instead that the “root cause” of illegal immigration to the United States is that America is just too good relative to the rest of the world.
    If we invested taxpayer dollars in humanitarian aid, then people of other countries wouldn’t feel the need to come to America anymore because their country would be as good or better, the thinking goes.

    The problem is that this thinking is stupid.
    It also happens to be dangerous because it requires us to beef up the rest of the world and cut ourselves down to size.
    In an effort to pretend that the illegal immigration crisis is caused by factors other than Biden administration policy, this line of thought has sent Kamala Harris to other countries to investigate and report back about how bad they have it relative to us.

    Her solution to our own problems, then, will always be to solve the problems of everyone else — to make all things equitable.

    This is a load of bunk.

    The Guatemalans know it as much as we do.
