Washington D.C. is chock full of worthless think tanks that seem to exist to employ the friends of the well-connected and which produce absolutely nothing.
Some, like the Brookings Institute, are openly affiliates of enemy terror states like Qatar, and there’s the Wilson Center, which is a partly government-funded operation under the aegis of the Smithsonian.
The Wilson Center isn’t spectacularly bad on its own, but taxpayers shouldn’t be funding this garbage. Here’s just a sample of a few recent Wilson Center tweets.
President Emerita Jane Harman makes the case for rejoining the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA).
“It’s really bad news for families … this is the worst headache coming up at the worst possible time,” says @sandsatwilson on the Canadian truckers’ bridge blockade.

But this is particularly infuriating.
After Biden decided to split Afghanistan’s “assets” between 9/11 victims and the Taliban (by way of the UN and local NGOs which have a history of paying off the Taliban), the Taliban and lefties were outraged… at money going to 9/11 victims.
Michael Kugelman, deputy director of the Asia Program at the U.S.-based Wilson Center, called Mr. Biden’s order to divert $3.5 billion away from Afghanistan “heartless.”
“It’s great that $3.5B in new humanitarian aid for Afghanistan has been freed up. But to take another $3.5B that belongs to the Afghan people, and divert it elsewhere–that is misguided and quite frankly heartless,” he tweeted.
What Afghan people?
Never mind that the U.S. subsidized Afghanistan to the tune of a whole lot more than a mere $7 billion, but we’ve seen pretty clear that the “Afghan people” when given a chance surrendered to the Taliban. And the Taliban are terrorists and enemies.
The problem is that we have plenty of enemies within.
