The consequences of a robust foreign policy.

Over the past few days we are starting to see what a competent administration conducting the foreign policy of the United States can do on the world stage.

No bluster, quiet and effective pressure using means we may never know. The outcome is Vladimir Putin having to back out twice in a week. First he pulled his troops back from the border with Ukraine, tonight he let Navalny be treated by civilian doctors.

None of these results were obtained via tweets or stupid comments. Just quiet, effective soft power application.

The adults are back in charge.

another euphemism. putting a suspect in a prone position.

In practice this means throwing the person on the ground face first and then yelling don't resist when they wriggle in pain.

nobody is commenting on the obvious racist trope that windsor, pd officer used

He said, you are fixing to ride the lightning son.
In the south , white people addressing black people by the moniker boy or son is an obvious racist trope. Not to mention he threatens to kill him in the same breath.
This is a few minutes from my house , I am so infuriated especially given that I already see rwingers making excuses. I almost got into a fist fight earlier today because of one such remark by some clueless asshole thinking I was a kindred spirit ( I am white) .
