The alliance between the United States and Europe is broken. That much became clear over three days of intensive discussions in Munich last month. To be sure, it can be fixed. But that will take a fundamental readjustment in policy and direction on both sides of the Atlantic.Every year, top U.S. and European officials gather in February at the Munich Security Conference to assess the state of their alliance. The tone was set by conference organizers, who coined the phrase “Westlessness” as the theme for the conference. Both the world and the West itself, they suggested, were becoming less west...

Herschel Walker bellyaches over questions about Trump: 'He's not here in Georgia — Herschel Walker is here'
Georgia Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Herschel Walker distanced himself from former President Donald Trump.
Walker spoke to Fox News on Tuesday during a roundtable with Black business leaders in Georgia.
"You know the former president, just a couple days ago, was up in North Carolina," the reporter noted. "If he comes to Georgia, you'll be standing next to him?"
Walker did not answer with an affirmative yes.
"If he comes to Georgia, like I say, if he comes to do something for me, I'm fine with that," the candidate replied. "I'm still running for this office. I think people want to try to use Donald Trump and this and that."
"Herschel Walker is running for the Senate here in Georgia, not Donald Trump," he continued. "I think everybody would like for Donald to be running but he's not running. They would like him to be running for the Senate, he can't run for the Senate. He's not here in Georgia. Herschel Walker is here in Georgia. I'm running for the Senate and I'm going to win the Senate."

According to KLCC, a man used racial slurs and gave Nazi salutes after being confronted for flying a swastika flag outside of a business center in Florence, Oregon.
The confrontation happened when a local resident, Patrick Meade, noticed the man putting up the Nazi flag in place of the American flag, which he had draped over his shoulder after taking it down first.
"'I asked him, ‘Excuse me, what do you think you’re doing?’ And he replied, ‘I’m putting up a Nazi flag. You got a problem with Nazis?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah I do.’ And then he called me an N-word lover, and I got really mad,'" said Meade.
The report goes on to state that Meade then left the scene before then returning to take some photos before the police arrived. He returned to find the man making Nazi salutes while arguing with another person.
The flag was taken down shortly afterward.
The man reportedly acted alone, without permission from the manager of the business center.
"No charges were pressed against the man. Florence Police say he’s acquainted with the building’s manager and owner. A Siuslaw News article quotes a center employee who described him as 'mentally ill' though no one else has verified this. The man has been told not to do it again," said the report. "A Florence PD information officer said when asked why he flew the controversial flag, the man said because he liked it and that the American flag he'd taken down had a rip in it."
This comes amid a number of other well-publicized incidents of hate symbols being found in public and common spaces around the country. In May, students at a Chicago-area suburban high school were disciplined after a Nazi flag was found in a bathroom.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who serves on the House select committee investigating the attack, recently confronted Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) for spreading debunked conspiracy theories accusing FBI agents of fomenting the riot, and the "Morning Joe" host said that was emblematic of the GOP's response to the insurrection.
"The first part of Jamie Raskin's conversation there, he explains how they had come to an agreement with Republicans," Scarborough said. "They had actually sent their proposals to Republicans, who were taking part in the process and then, as he said, right as the clip began, the cult leader, as he called Donald Trump, the cult leader vetoed it. This is just a self-own by Republicans. They had a chance to actually participate in this process, and they said no to a bipartisan investigation when you had [Sen.] Joe Manchin trying to apply pressure on Republicans, whom he was trying to work with, saying, 'Come on, this is something you don't play politics with, you all should be involved in this for the betterment of the Senate, the House, this country.'"
"They refused," he added. "Then, of course, you had House Republicans, Democrats talking together, working together, and Democrats passing proposals to Republicans who would send proposals back to Democrats and they had actually agreed to work together, and then Donald Trump vetoed it. So here we are with Republicans on the outside of this process and complaining about it when time and time again they had an opportunity to participate, and they just refused to do it. So they turned this entirely over to the Democratic party and [Reps.] Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger."
