Let’s try to imagine how foreigners see our circumstances: Neither traditional U.S. allies nor adversaries can share the new administration’s assessment that the United States government faced an insurrection Jan. 6. In comparison to their own domestic challenges, those protests were plainly mild.
In France, for instance, the Yellow Vests movement has been engaged in protests for more than two years that have frequently devolved into street violence, leaving 11 dead and more than 4000 wounded. From the perspective of the nation that produced the French Revolution, Jan. 6 was nothing like an insurrection. Same for Israel, which has been fighting terrorist attacks plotted by some of the state’s Arab citizens since the country’s founding.
Consider how authoritarian states must see it. Does the Islamic Republic of Iran, periodically engaged in low-level violent conflict with its growing opposition movement, believe that Jan. 6 was an attack on America’s domestic peace? What about Russia, where over the weekend authorities arrested more than 2000 who marched nationwide to demand the release of Vladimir Putin critic Alexander Navalny? Does the Chinese Communist Party, which uses mass detentions and forced sterilizations to eradicate the Muslim minority Uyghur population, believe that American families and seniors marching in the winter cold amounted to an existential threat to the American regime? No, they all see through it—the American political, corporate, cultural, and media elite is waging war on the Americans it despises.
At the end of his last day as President of the United States, Donald Trump vowed to "be back in some form." His pledge may not materialize literally, but in a sense, it could be true. Trump, who has left the Oval Office, now could take shots at the Biden administration. The US has said adieu to "President Donald Trump", but now has Trump as political commentator.
Trump claimed he had not launched any new wars during his term. However, the trade war he started against China proved to be an economic war which the US has not won for the first time in its history.

Geologist and earth scientist Professor Ian Plimer says the “climate is cyclical” as a new study claims Earth is heading to an ice age.
“We are getting towards the end of the warm period, the peak of the warmth was about 5,000 years ago and we are heading for the next inevitable ice age,” he told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.
Professor Plimer says every occurrence of icebergs expanding and shrinking happened with “more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than now”.
“To use the word ‘unprecedented’ shows you have expunged history and geology from your knowledge.”
When agricultural scientist Bruce French was teaching agriculture in Papua New Guinea, his students had a strong message for him.
In 54 years Bruce French has catalogued 31,170 edible plants
Native plants' nutritional qualities are often overlooked
Information from the vast database is available for free
They were sick of being taught about western plants and wanted to learn more about their native produce.
"I knew nothing about those, so I had to learn them," Mr French said. "And I just kept going. What about the next country, and the next country?"
