Chuck Hagel, a former GOP senator and Obama administration Defense secretary, says he's voting for Democrat Joe Biden over Republican Donald Trump in November. Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis.

Gee - - it was just a short while ago that L-Dotters were accused of being nutjobs for using terms like "RINO" and "Uniparty." Any doubters now?

Hagel has always been a RINO who really faked out the Cornhuskers! Once the Cornhuskers caught on to Hagel’s RINO scam he could not be elected to the position of dog catcher in Nebraska.

His justification for the Biden vote is because he thinks we should still be fighting ISIS. He sure hasn't kept up with the news. The Iranian militias in Iraq pose much more of a threat to the US than ISIS does at this point. Besides, who says Biden wants to fight ISIS? He hasn't made any statements to that effect.

The article does not say who Hagel supported in 2016 but it certainly was not Trump. It would have been big news if Hagel came out with support of Trump as it would for Colin Powell to do so.

Obie the Kenyan created ISIS so they must not be harmed. The US military tamed Iraq, twice, but that hole will never be stable until it is either all Sunni or all Shiite since muslims can't even get along with each other. Iran's economy is tanked so they need to steal from their close neighbors and they have been battling with Iraq for at least fifty years so why not go there again?

The two Chucks of Congress, Hagel and Grassley, define cuckservative. OP I stand with you regarding Uniparty and RINO. It is like Rush used to say about his analogy regarding roadkill and moderates. Both are found in the middle of the road, too scared to commit to a side. The absolute worst though is Pierre Delecto, followed by Turtle and Lady Twaddlebottom. Responding and defending ourselves is the only way to end this. After all, we wouldn't expect parents to allow their own kids to act like brats without response, why should decent patriots be any different?

The Nordic countries of Denmark and Finland are reporting no increase in the spread of coronavirus since opening their respective schools, further suggesting that children are less likely to be sickened by COVID-19 and spread the virus. Denmark began sending its children back to school on April 15, just over a month after Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen issued an extensive nationwide lockdown. They were kept spaced apart in classrooms and on playgrounds, while sanitation measures such as hand-washing stations and deep-cleaning procedures were put into place.

A divided Supreme Court on Friday rejected an emergency appeal by a California church that challenged state limits on attendance at worship services that have been imposed to contain the spread of the coronavirus. Over the dissent of the four more conservative justices, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's four liberals in turning away a request from the South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, California, in the San Diego area. The church argued that limits on how many people can attend their services violate constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and had been seeking an order in time for services on Sunday.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam drew criticism Saturday after he was captured on social media photos without a mask while mingling with constituents on a beach. The episode at Virginia Beach came one day after Northam reportedly began contemplating a mandatory mask rule for Commonwealth citizens when it reopens from the pandemic. The order would require masks in indoor settings. "Virginia Gov Northam on the Virginia Beach boardwalk; no mask, no social distancing," one citizen tweeted. Another complained: "Liberals consistently send a message of 'Do as I say, not as I do.'"

Residents of the American south are bracing for the emergence of a new brood of 17-year cicadas, the exceedingly noisy insects that fill the summer air with their loud mating calls nearly every two decades. Southerners may soon be treated to "a cacophonous whining like a field of out-of-tune car radios," Virginia Tech announced this week. The bugs live in underground burrows, slowly maturing over their 17-year life cycle, before emerging for about a month to mate, after which they quickly die. The relatively brief adult life of the cicadas is nevertheless notable from the outsized noise levels they generate over the course of about four weeks.
