    Conservative Columnist George Will: Vote Against GOP In Midterms

    Longtime conservative columnist George Will is making a case against voting for Republicans in November’s 2018 midterm elections, arguing that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other GOP members of Congress “have become the president’s poodles.”

    In a column published Friday in The Washington Post, Will lamented “Republican misrule,” and criticized lawmakers for “hav[ing] no higher ambition than to placate the president.

    “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of Republican control,” Will wrote.

    Will also took on Trump aide Stephen Miller, one of the president’s top advisers on immigration, as well as the president’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

    “Just as a magnet attracts iron filings, Trump attracts, and is attracted to, louts,” he wrote.

    Will didn’t endorse Democrats, either — “a Democratic-controlled Congress would be a basket of deplorables,” he wrote — but nevertheless pressed voters to strip the Republicans of their congressional majority.

    “In today’s GOP, which is the president’s plaything, he is the mainstream,” he wrote. “So, to vote against his party’s cowering congressional caucuses is to affirm the nation’s honor while quarantining him.”

    Last year, Will called Trump “the nation’s worst president” after Trump endorsed accused child molester Roy Moore for the then-open Senate seat in Alabama.

    Top U.S. official slams Afghan reconstruction efforts that now exceed costs of WWII Marshall Plan

    The top U.S. watchdog in Afghanistan says the 17-year reconstruction effort in that war-torn country has wasted billions because Americans have failed to root out corruption and built infrastructure without consulting local leaders about whether they needed or could afford to operate it.

    Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko told The Hill’s new morning show "Rising" this week that the cost of the U.S.-funded reconstruction effort now far exceeds the costs of the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe after World War II.

    The effort has suffered from a misguided belief that Afghans have the same needs as Americans, he argued.

    “We can't rebuild it into a little America. I think that was one of the problems. We wanted to turn this into Kansas,"
    he told co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton in a segment that aired Friday.

    “We designed and funded a lot of programs that the Afghans did event know about it until we turned it over to them," he continued.
    Those failures in communication and understanding resulted in U.S. taxpayers wasting billions building power plants, gas stations and even a hotel that the Afghans have never used and can’t afford to operate on their own.

    Sopko said the U.S. government also poured way too much money into the country without dealing with the "inherent problem of corruption" in Afghan government and society.

    "It is one of the most corrupt countries in the world… We probably contributed to it by pouring too much in, too fast with too little oversight," he said. "Basically dollar bills were falling from the sky."

    "You can't just throw the money at them, you have to put conditions on them," he added.

    The U.S. has now appropriated $117.2 billion on reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan since the war began in 2002. That's more than the $103 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars that the U.S. collectively distributed to 16 nations in Western Europe to rebuild after World War II, Sopko's office said.

    Will, like Buckley before him, rarely lets party trump considered principle. Unfortunately, the party that has largely championed his particular principles doesn't appear to have that same rational capacity of late.
