Only Two More Weeks of Bonus Downloads
Season 21 downloads have all been released. Click here for the exhaustive list. Membership continues every Monument Monday with the following BONUS downloads:
- Extemp Prep for February 22, 2021 – Three headline topics covered in this week’s Extemp Prep download include the Texas’ Storms, Africa and Walmart.
- Impromptu Prep for February 22, 2021 – Sports.

- Policy (NCFCA) for February 22, 2021 – The AFF plan removes EU aid to refugee camps in Lebanon that are serving migrants evacuated from the civil war in Syria. Their theory is that this aid is being diverted to support the terrorist group Hezbollah, which is a political party in the Lebanese government and is also classified as a terrorist organization. This NEG brief shows Hezbollah isn’t really a threat. Keep in mind that the politics of the Middle East are so complex that sometimes the US and Hezbollah and the Lebanese government have common enemies (e.g. ISIS). If EU aids Hezbollah while fighting ISIS, is that really a bad thing? In addition, Lebanon is on the brink of collapse right now. If we cut off aid, Lebanon will probably collapse.
- A second NCFCA policy brief — A bonus upon a bonus.
- Policy (Stoa) for February 22, 2021 – This is a generic Negative brief to help against Affirmative cases that argue for doing their plan, not because it actually solves a problem, but because it removes US responsibility for a problem (“clean hands”), or upholds certain “American values” like upholding human rights or avoiding civilian casualties. The problem will continue but at least the US won’t be responsible, and that’s supposed to be sufficient for an AFF ballot.
