AFGHANISTAN: NOTHING MORE CAN BE SAID AS WE UNCONDITIONALLY SURRENDER

astainonamerica

2021-08-30 17_15_17-Greenshot       

General Kenneth McKenzie: “I am here to announce the completion of our withdrawal from Afghanistan and the end of the military mission to evacuate American citizens, third-country nationals, and vulnerable Afghans. The last C-17 lifted off from Hamid Karzai International Airport on August 30th, this afternoon at 3:29 p.m. eastern time. The last manned aircraft is now clearing the airspace above Afghanistan.”

WORK

THE BIDEN DIPLOMATIC PLAN

We will print money we don’t have and send pallets of cash to terrorists to buy back Americans and select allies in a slow-moving hostage recovery program.

We will ensure the economic survival of the Taliban until Communist Chinese and Russian money start flowing.

The plan...

After the initial announcement of the withdrawal from Afghanistan,  Secretary of State Antony Blinken hit the podium to spin this disaster. 

This has been a massive military, diplomatic and humanitarian undertaking. One of the most difficult in the nation’s history and an extraordinary feat of logistics and coordination under some of the most challenging circumstances imaginable. Many, many people made this possible.

I want to commend our outstanding diplomats who worked around the clock, and around the world, to coordinate the operation.

[OCS: These were the guys that created this disaster.]

Now U.S. military flights have ended. And our troops have departed Afghanistan. A new chapter of America’s engagement with Afghanistan has begun. It’s one in which we will lead with our diplomacy. The military mission is over. A new diplomatic mission has begun.

So here is our plan for the days and weeks ahead:

First, we built a new team to help lead this new mission.

[OCS: So you can't blame the new team, even though its leadership is from the old team.]

Second, we will continue our relentless efforts to help Americans, foreign nationals and Afghans leave Afghanistan if they choose.

[OCS: Leaving Americans behind to be tortured and slaughtered anonymously without anybody reporting is unconscionable.]

Third, we will hold the Taliban to its pledge to let people freely depart Afghanistan.

[OCS: Without a military presence or the will to re-engage, that leaves American money as the sole motivator.]

Fourth, we will work to secure their safe passage.

[OCS: With no communications and only sketchy details, talking is not enough.]

Fifth, we will stay focused on counterterrorism. The Taliban has made a commitment to prevent terrorist groups from using Afghanistan as a base for external operations that could threaten the United States or our allies, including Al Qaeda and the Taliban’s sworn enemy, ISIS-K.

[OCS: We just made this rag-tag army one of the most powerfully-armed groups in the region.]

Sixth, we will continue our humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

[OCS: We gave them $85 billion in weapons. We gave them billions in cash to pay their people. What more do we owe them?]

And seventh, we will continue our broad international diplomacy across all these issues and many others. We believe we can accomplish far more and exert far greater leverage when we work in coordination with our allies and partners.

The President's perfunctory remarks...

I want to thank our commanders and the men and women serving under them for their execution of the dangerous retrograde from Afghanistan as scheduled – in the early morning hours of August 31, Kabul time – with no further loss of American lives. The past 17 days have seen our troops execute the largest airlift in US history, evacuating over 120,000 US citizens, citizens of our allies, and Afghan allies of the United States. They have done it with unmatched courage, professionalism, and resolve. Now, our 20-year military presence in Afghanistan has ended.

Tomorrow afternoon, I will address the American people on my decision not to extend our presence in Afghanistan beyond August 31. For now, I will report that it was the unanimous recommendation of the Joint Chiefs and of all of our commanders on the ground to end our airlift mission as planned. Their view was that ending our military mission was the best way to protect the lives of our troops, and secure the prospects of civilian departures for those who want to leave Afghanistan in the weeks and months ahead.

The Taliban has made commitments on safe passage and the world will hold them to their commitments. It will include ongoing diplomacy in Afghanistan and coordination with partners in the region to reopen the airport allowing for continued departure for those who want to leave and delivery of humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.<Source>

Humanitarian aid is Diplospeak for lots of money.

Bottom line…

If you hadn't noticed, this historical departure was announced by General McKenzie -- not by the President of the United States Joe Biden, not by the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, not by the Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and not by the head of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley. They are all busy hiding from this shit-show and certainly do not want to create a media-memorable photo-op as part of their legacy.

The White House, a freak show of bubble-dwelling, invented pronoun-using, alphabet people who do not believe in an exceptional America, is MINIMIZING Islamic terrorism by excusing one group of terrorists, the Taliban, by pointing to another group of terrorists, ISIS-K. How much time will pass before the Taliban excuses its atrocities by claiming that ISIS K fighters have infiltrated the Taliban in Kabul and they are wreaking havoc and making it impossible to govern and to maintain law and order?

Biden sank the damn ship and now he and his leg-humpers and lickspittles want credit for sending out lifeboats while leaving some survivors in the water.

It is absolutely stunning how fast America has declined since President Obama seeded the government with his fellow travelers.

Proof positive that Democrats cannot be trusted with the safety and security of the United States – including border protection.

We are so screwed.

GUN CONTROL: CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL: POLITICS OVER MEDICINE?

The purpose of language is to convey meaning in clear, concise, and understandable terms, not to promote a malignant ideology and agenda that has resulted in the deaths and suffering of millions of individuals worldwide. Hence, George Orwell’s prescient warning about the perversion and bastardization of language to drive a political narrative or confuse and conflate meanings so the aggrieved cannot accurately describe their grievance.

Political correctness invades science and medicine…

Cdc-hdrPreferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities

Language in communication products should reflect and speak to the needs of people in the audience of focus. The following provides some preferred terms for select population groups; the terms to try to use represent an ongoing shift toward non-stigmatizing language.

Non-U.S.-born Persons / Immigration Status

Instead of this…

  • Illegals
  • Illegal immigrants
  • Illegal aliens
  • Illegal migrants
  • Foreigners
  • The foreign-born

Try this…

  • People with undocumented status
  • Mixed-status households
  • Immigrant, migrant
  • Asylee or asylum seeker
  • Refugee or refugee populations
  • Non-U.S.-born persons/foreign-born persons

Corrections & Detentions

Instead of this…

  • Inmate
  • Prisoner
  • Convict/ex-convict
  • Offender
  • Criminal
  • Parolee
  • Detainee

Try this…

  • People/persons who are incarcerated or detained (often used for shorter jail stays or youth in detention facilities)
  • Partner/child of an incarcerated person
  • Persons in pre-trial or with charge
  • People who were formerly incarcerated
  • Persons on parole or probation
  • Non-US citizens (or immigrants) in immigration detention facilities
  • People in immigration detention facilities

Drug / Substance Use

Instead of this…

  • Drug-users/addicts/drug abusers
  • Alcoholics/abusers
  • Persons taking/prescribed medication assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Persons who relapsed
  • Smokers

Try this…

  • Persons who use drugs/people who inject drugs
  • Persons with substance use disorder
  • Persons with alcohol use disorder
  • Persons in recovery from substance use/alcohol disorder
  • Persons taking/prescribed medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD)
  • Persons who returned to use
  • People who smoke

Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity

Instead of this…

  • Homosexual
  • Using MSM (men who have sex with men) as shorthand for sexual orientation to describe men who self-identify as gay or bisexual, individually or collectively
  • Transgenders/transgendered/transsexual
  • Biologically male/female
  • Genetically male/female
  • Hermaphrodite
  • Gendered pronouns:
    • Her or she
    • He/she
    • His or her
    • His/her
  • Sexual preference, which is used to suggest someone’s sexual identity is a choice and therefore could be changed by choice
  • Gendered, binary language when not necessary

Try this…

  • LGBTQ (or LGBTQIA or LGBTQ+ or LGBTQIA2)
  • Lesbian, gay, or bisexual (when referring to self-identified sexual orientation)
  • Using MSM (men who have sex with men) to mean people who report being male at birth and having had sex with a person who was male at birth, regardless of self-identified sexual orientation
  • Queer
  • Pansexual
  • Asexual
  • Transgender
  • Assigned male/female at birth
  • Designated male/female at birth
  • Gender non-conforming
  • Two-spirit
  • Non-binary
  • Genderqueer
  • Gender diverse
  • People/person with intersex traits
  • Pronouns:
    • Singular they or their
    • He/she/they

Notes:

  • Use LGBTQ community (and not, e.g., gay community) to reflect the diversity of the community unless a specific sub-group is meant to be referenced.
  • Consider using the terms “sexual orientation”, “gender identity”, and “gender expression”.
  • Use gender-neutral language whenever possible (e.g., avoid “stewardess” and consider “flight attendant” instead).
  • Considering using terms that are inclusive of all gender identities (e.g. parents-to-be; expectant parents).
  • Be aware that not every family is the same, and that some children are not being raised by their biological parents. Build flexibility into communications and surveys to allow full participation.

For more political correctness involving the mentally ill, aging individuals and other identity groups, the entire Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities guide is available on the CDC website.

Why I am pointing this out…

It appears that the CDC’s Director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, is attempting to pervert the mission of the CDC and manipulate language to curtail your constitutional rights, especially in circumvention of the Constitution’s Second Amendment.

CNN EXCLUSIVE 'Something has to be done': After decades of near-silence from the CDC, the agency's director is speaking up about gun violence

[OCS: According to the CDC, “Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.” <Source>

Violence is not a medical problem, it is not communicable, and unless it is pathologically induced by a physiological or psychological condition, treatment should be limited to those afflicted, not the broader public of unafflicted individuals.]

'I'm not here about gun control'

[OCS: This is a bald-faced lie.]

In restarting gun violence research, Walensky said she wants the CDC to find common ground with gun owners.

"Let's agree, we don't want people to die. Let's just agree there. What can we do to stop people from dying, and what can we do to stop people from being injured," she said.

[OCS: If this were a sincere statement, I would posit that the CDC would be more concerned with automobiles, knives, clubs, and fists – all of which result in more deaths than firearms. Not to mention drugs, including the various forms of legal and highly-taxed alcohol and tobacco.

And if this were statistically driven, one would demand the disarming of all black men below the age of 35 who live in the inner cities. It is a fact that most white youngsters are killed by automobile accidents, and most black youngsters are killed by other black youngsters.]

Walensky seems careful to avoid the ire of gun rights activists -- she doesn't even like using the word "gun," preferring the term "firearm."

"Generally, the word gun, for those who are worried about research in this area, is followed by the word control, and that's not what I want to do here," she added. "I'm not here about gun control. I'm here about preventing gun violence and gun death."

[OCS: This is language manipulation to drive an ideological narrative and agenda.

If Walensky was serious about preventing gun violence and gun death, one might assume she was interested in the root cause of those deaths – CRIME – and be speaking out against defunding the police and incarcerating violent criminals instead of releasing them back into the community.

Again being mindful of the science, the statistics, and psychological profiles of criminals with high recidivism (relapse) rates.]

She said she doesn't want people to think she is trying to take away their guns.

"This is not a conversation about having them or not having them. This is a conversation about how we can make them being here safe," she said. "The research that we intend to do is going to be squarely about making America safe. Making people safe."

[OCS: Guns are tools, just like power tools. You can use them to kill or maim your victims or defend yourself from evildoers or build useful items.]

She invited gun owners to be part of the solution.

"Come to the table. Join us in the conversation," she said. "I want you to teach me what you have done to make your gun safe, and then I want you to teach everybody else," she added.

[OCS: Let’s see, I try to be a responsible adult American, I am not a criminal, I am not psychotic, or experience fits of anger or spousal abuse. And, I represent the vast majority of gun owners, not the relatively few that commit heinous acts that drive the progressive communist democrat agenda of disarming the law-abiding public.]

"We cannot understand the research of firearm violence, firearm injury, without embracing wholeheartedly, the firearm owning community," she added. "I really do believe that the population of people who wants to own a gun doesn't want people hurt by them. The majority of the population does not want people hurt by them. I want them at the table."

[OCS: Like all the pointy-head academics who sponsor identity-studies programs that start from the premise that white Americans are evil or racist, why would any sane individual legitimize your efforts by sitting down with someone who is a liar?

By the way, since you are an acknowledged HIV/AIDS “expert,” do you still buy into the lie that HIV/AIDS is a major threat to the entire population or is limited mostly to the male gay and drug-using subset of the public.]

The CDC's plan

In April, President Joe Biden said the country was facing "a gun violence public health epidemic," but the CDC hasn't said how it plans to address the epidemic until now.

[OCS: Commonly, “an epidemic is a condition affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time.” Using this definition, one can plainly deduce that there is no national epidemic that demands drastic action but, if anything, is limited to the population of black inner-city residents and, more broadly, criminals and drug dealers.] 

"I swore to the President and to this country that I would protect your health. This is clearly one of those moments, one of those issues that is harming America's health," Walensky said.

[OCS: Neither you nor the President of the United States has the constitutional authority to interfere with Second Amendment protections. Sort of like your disregard for private property rights in declaring an unconstitutional moratorium of rent payments that disproportionately disadvantaged property owners.]

Decades after lobbying pressure and politics all but stopped gun violence research, Walensky's plan is to restart that research and identify effective solutions.

[OCS: This is another bald-faced lie. Most lobbying pressure was to prevent the infringement of the Second Amendment by petty tyrants attempting to disarm a law-abiding public to advance a toxic authoritarian agenda. Most of those conducting research were ignored as their findings did not support the progressive communist democrat narrative.]

For example, the CDC is spending $2,224,482 to fund a surveillance mechanism that tracks, in nearly real time, the number of people coming into emergency rooms with nonfatal gunshot wounds. It collects data on the intent of the injury -- documenting, for example, whether it was self-inflicted, unintentional or related to an assault.

"We don't even know who enters the emergency department, in most places, as a result of firearm injury -- we don't even know it," Walesnky said.

[OCS: The CDC can’t even accurately track deaths related to Covid-19 and distinguish between deaths from COVID-19 and those dying of other causes with COVID-19. Primarily because the government incentivized false reporting to support a political narrative.]

The NRA's next steps

By speaking up, Walenksy risks enraging the NRA.

If the gun lobby again pressures Congress to cut CDC gun research funding, it's unclear if lawmakers will acquiesce as they did in 1997.

[OCS: By all means, we must create an enemy, and the NRA makes a handy target. As a life member (benefactor level), it annoys me that tens of thousands of my fellow shooters and gun enthusiasts are tarred with a brush that should be reserved for criminals and politicians – often one in the same thing.

As for enraging anyone, consider the millions of people who just want you to do your effin’ job and stay out of Democrat politics.]

WHY MARK MILLEY MUST BE COURT-MARTIALED FOR DERILICITION OF DUTY

On June 23, 2021, testifying under oath before the House Armed Services Committee about their budget requests, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley, in response to a question by Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO)…

Lamborn: “Is it at all possible to keep Bagram Air Force Base?”

Milley:Bagram is not necessary, tactically or operationally for what we are going to try to do here with Afghanistan. Consolidate on Kabul in defense of their government“.

In his own words…

The decision matrix is limited…

(1)  Milley is clueless and unaware of the threats of a unilateral, unconditional withdrawal from Afghanistan.

(2)  Milley is aware of the threats and chooses not to bring them to the attention of Congress, possibly to protect operational security.

(3)  Milley wants to defend the military’s budget request and is blowing off a member of Congress.

(4)  There is no plan.

(5)  The White House has not signed off on a plan --  if one exists.

(6)  Milley has signed on to another plan that does not involve Bagram.

(7)  The Obama/Biden White House is calling the shots while the Generals salute and the politicians kiss ass. 

No excuses…

Sitting next to General Milley was Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, whose experience includes being the former 12th commander of United States Central Command 2013 to 2016, the 33rd vice chief of staff of the Army from January 2012 to March 2013, and the last commanding general of United States Forces – Iraq Operation New Dawn. To say Austin would be unaware of battle strategy and tactics would be to underestimate his entire career.

 The 71st United States secretary of state,  Antony John Blinken, is an Obama leg humper, and lickspittle has no excuse and should be impeached.

Bottom line...

Still waiting!

We are so screwed.

THIS IS WHAT HONOR IN THE MARINES LOOKS LIKE

For those of you who have been disgusted with the behavior of Commander-in-Chief, President Joe Biden, his senior military leaders like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Generals  Mark Milley (20th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), Kenneth Frank McKenzie (14th commander of the United States Central Command), and others…

A military leader has a duty to the constitution, the country, their branch of service, their command, and their troops. If they see something is radically wrong, they have the option of following orders and accepting the consequences or resigning to speak out.

Under President Obama, many leaders – no-nonsense, serious fighting men were relieved of command, some on the flimsiest pretexts. Others were held accountable for systemic shortfalls and taking shortcuts to improve availabilities and to complete their missions. And, of course, some junior leaders took the fall for the mistakes of the senior leadership.

We now have, not senior leaders, but mealy-mouthed politicians kowtowing to a President who is obviously mentally impaired and delusional. 

Here is an officer who has put it all on the line to question his senior leadership for a tragic and catastrophic order given by someone in the White House attempting to micromanage the Afghanistan withdrawal much as they handled Benghazi. The same people appear to be at the controls, and this time, instead of 4 dead Americans, we have at least 13 dead Americans – with the prospects for more.

Stuart Scheller, AITB Commander at United States Marine Corps

To all my friends across the social networks. I have been relieved for cause based on a lack of trust and confidence as of 14:30 today.

My chain of command is doing exactly what I would do… if I were in their shoes.

I appreciate the opportunities AITB command provided. To all the news agencies asking for interviews…

I will not be making any statements other than what’s on my social platforms until I exit the Marine Corps.

America has many issues… but it’s my home… it’s where my three sons will become men. America is still the light shining in a fog of chaos.

When my Marine Corps career comes to an end, I look forward to a new beginning.

My life’s purpose is to make America the most lethal and effective foreign diplomacy instrument.

While my days of hand to hand violence may be ending…I see a new light on the horizon.

The KEY Questions that must be answered...

(1)  WHO PREPARED THE WITHDRAWAL PLAN?

(2)  WHO RECOMMENDED THE ABANDONMENT OF THE SECURE BAGRAM AIRBASE?

(3)  DID ANYONE AT THE WHITE HOUSE MICROMANAGE ACTION ON THE GROUND OR ALTER THE PLAN?

(4)  WHY HAS THE SENIOR MILITARY LEADERSHIP NOT RESIGNED IN PROTEST OR DISGRACE?

(5)  WHY ARE OUR MILITARY LEADERS CONTINUING TO REFER TO THE TALIBAN AS OUR PARTNERS WHEN THEY RELEASED THE ISIS  PRISONERS AND ALLOWED THEM THROUGH TO ATTACK AMERICANS? 

(6)  DID ANYONE PROVIDE THE TALIBAN WITH A LIST OF AMERICANS, VISA HOLDERS, AND COOPERATIVE AFGHAN CITIZENS?

This is retaliation of 12 Marines and 1 Navy Corpsman?

US airstrike targets Islamic State member in Afghanistan

The airstrike was launched from beyond Afghanistan less than 48 hours after the devastating Kabul attack that killed 13 Americans and scores of Afghans with just days left in a final U.S. withdrawal after 20 years of war. U.S. Central Command provided few details; it said it believed its strike killed no civilians.

Central Command said the drone strike was conducted in Nangahar province against an IS member believed to be involved in planning attacks against the United States in Kabul. The strike killed one individual, spokesman Navy Capt. William Urban said. <Source>

We should have destroyed a Taliban-controlled stronghold with B-52s,

Here is what dishonor looks like...

An active-duty Army Sergeant, Cindy Bronson, posted a message for her fellow Americans in case martial law is declared: “Understand that if active duty military actually gets deployed within the United States, that weapon is not just going to be pointed at other people, other countries, it’s pointed at you. If you do not get in your house when I tell you to,” Bronson warned, “you become the enemy. Martial law. You know, when your rights get curtailed?”  This was posted to TikTok, the CCP-approved spyware masquerading as a social media app. <Source>

Time for an Article 32 hearing for this stupid soldier. It has been a long-standing article of faith that the United States military will not turn its weapons against American citizens. Posse Comitatus (18 U.S.C. § 1385) limits the powers of the federal government in the use of federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States. Heaven help us if martial law is ever declared outside an enemy attack or response to a natural disaster. 

Pray for our honorable soldiers, especially this brave Marine and American patriot.

AFGHANISTAN: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION BEYOND STUPID AND INCOMPETENT -- TRAITORS

The black stain on America’s honor just turned blood red!

astainonamerica

If this is true, one needs to ask a critical question…

IN WHAT UNIVERSE DO YOU HAND YOUR ENEMIES A LIST OF AMERICAN CITIZENS AND AFGHAN COLLABORATORS AFTER DISARMING THE MAJORITY OF YOUR MILITARY AND PROVIDING ARMS TO THE ENEMY?

POLITICO

U.S. officials provided Taliban with names of Americans, Afghan allies to evacuate

U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that's prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.

The move, detailed to POLITICO by three U.S. and congressional officials, was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan as chaos erupted in Afghanistan’s capital city last week after the Taliban seized control of the country.

It also came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.

Since the fall of Kabul in mid-August, nearly 100,000 people have been evacuated, most of whom had to pass through the Taliban's many checkpoints. But the decision to provide specific names to the Taliban, which has a history of brutally murdering Afghans who collaborated with the U.S. and other coalition forces during the conflict, has angered lawmakers and military officials.

Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” said one defense official, who like others spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive topic. “It’s just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean.”

A spokesperson for U.S. Central Command declined to comment.

Still, that U.S. officials handed over a list of Afghan allies and American citizens and residents shows the extent to which they outsourced security of the airport’s outer perimeter to the Taliban. The Taliban has gone door-to-door in search of Afghan interpreters and others who helped U.S. and Western forces.

In written and verbal communications, Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, and Rear Adm. Peter Vasely, head of U.S. forces on the ground in Afghanistan, have referred to the Taliban as “our Afghan partners,” according to two defense officials. <Source>

Biden is pathetic and delusional…

biden-praying

“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Mr. Biden said from the White House East Room.

Again without specifics, Biden promised that the United States will "find any American who wishes to get out of Afghanistan" and "get them out" after the military has withdrawn without any explanation for how such missions will be carried out after a U.S. departure. And despite his administration's claims that every American who wants to get out of Afghanistan would be evacuated, Biden stated that a war has not ended with a "guarantee that everyone who wanted to be extracted...would get out."

Bottom line…

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, President Biden and his cadre of progressive communist democrats cannot be trusted with the safety and security of the United States.

If this does not outrage every American, our country is lost.

Every Member of Congress that does not impeach Biden or demand his removal on medical grounds is an enemy of America.

We are so screwed.

This is not Benghazi, where the media ignores four dead Americans and accepts Susan Rice’s lies about being sparked spontaneously by a protest against a video that was never shown in Benghazi. This is 4,000 or more Americans trapped behind enemy lines while the British and French send their elite special forces to rescue THEIR Btrapped citizens.

White House to media: We want our props on Afghanistan

The president and his team have taken it on the chin for the past week. Now, amid a massive evacuation effort, they want kudos too.

[OCS: Unbelievable! They want credit for an ongoing catastrophe of their own making?]

In the span of a week, the White House went from struggling to explain a rapidly deteriorating situation in Afghanistan to beating its chest.

[OCS: How effin crazy is this?]

Top Biden officials and administration allies have begun aggressively touting the success of their evacuation efforts in the war-torn country, offering frequent updates on the number of evacuees. They’ve framed the operation as historic — in line with the Berlin airlift — declared that they’re “over performing” their own metrics, and trumpeted the president as “defying expectations.”

[OCS: They are right about the operation being historic. The first time a country has been surrendered to an enemy in the history of the United States. The first time an American President has held ordinary citizens trapped behind enemy lines by his precipitous actions in such low regard.

As for the metrics and defying expectations… The administration did not know – even approximately – how many Americans were in-country and their locations even though they were calling, texting, and messaging the State Department. What about passport counts? As for expectations, it is a success if Biden can get through one question coherently.]

It’s a startling 180 from the defensive crouch Biden and his team occupied just days ago, one that reflects the sense of combativeness that has emerged in the West Wing as they sort through the first major, sustained crisis of the administration. And while it’s sparked accusations that the president’s team is trying to divert attention away from a crisis of its own creation, Biden’s defenders stress that, for now at least, he deserves to crow.

“That’s not a shifting message. That’s the transition, that’s what’s happening on the ground. That’s a change of circumstances,” said Philippe Reines, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton who worked at the State Department in the Obama administration and alongside some of Biden’s foreign policy hands.

The administration, starting with Secretary of State Tony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan, Reines said, have been working at “an incredible tempo” to get the situation under control. <Source>

[OCS: Reines is a boot-humping lickspittle whose nose is always up someone’s ass.]

It is time the American public held the progressive communist democrat propagandists in the mainstream media accountable for their role in propping up the massive failures of the Biden Administration in Afghanistan, the illegal alien crisis on our Southern Border, the mishandling of the Covid response, and the Democrat’s power grab late at night when nobody is watching.

Our Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, is a gutless piece of shit…

US citizens are told to STOP coming to Kabul airport due to terror threat leaving up to 1.5K including 23 California students stranded: Blinken BLAMES them for not leaving earlier as CIA start helicopter rescue missions

  • Americans at Kabul airport were told at around 3:30am local time Thursday to immediately leave three gates
  • The State Department tweeted that the Abbey Gate, East Gate, or North Gate should be avoided
  • As many as 1,500 Americans are looking to actively escape from Afghanistan, State Department announced
  • Blinken blamed US citizens for 'ignoring' public evacuation notices and not registering with the government
  • Republican lawmakers accused Biden of letting the Taliban dictate the terms of the US evacuation
  • A US military mission pulled 'less than 20' people from Kabul and brought them to the airport under the cover of darkness via helicopter, Pentagon officials revealed on Wednesday after two similar missions earlier
  • Among those still stranded in Afghanistan are 24 students and parents from a California school district 
  • Evacuees said they had been attacked by the Taliban and prevented from getting to Kabul airport
  • The reports emerged less than 24 hours after President Biden said the Taliban needed to let people leave 
  • Those not already at airport now have little chance of escape, as Taliban stop all Afghan citizens reaching it
  • Taliban has warned President Biden that there will be no extension to the August 31 evacuation deadline
  • US evacuated 19,000 people from Kabul, across 48 different flights, over the last 24 hours, White House says  <Source>

I was unaware that the CIA had our elite special forces' staffing, training, and capabilities. As for the numbers being bandied about – they are bogus!

‘Leave immediately’: State Dept. warns Americans at Kabul airport amid terror threat

The last-ditch effort to evacuate Americans from Afghanistan was upended Wednesday night amid a serious terror threat believed to be from the Islamic State’s Afghan affiliate, with the State Department warning U.S. citizens to immediately flee sections of the Kabul airport.

The urgent message from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul came just hours after Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed that about 1,500 Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan. The latest threat will make evacuating those Americans even more difficult and dangerous.

“Because of security threats outside the gates of Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so,” the embassy said.

“U.S. citizens who are at the Abbey Gate, East Gate, or North Gate now should leave immediately,” the warning said. <Source>

Where is the threat to use American troops and massive force if anyone harms an American? Oh, I forgot – they are flying out of the country.

Biden pours salt into wounds of relations with Europe at G7 meeting

In the end it took only seven minutes for Joe Biden to pour salt into the wounds of his fractured relationship with European leaders, telling them firmly on a video call that he would not extend the 31 August deadline for US troops to stay in Kabul, as he had been asked by the French, Italians and most of all the British. The rebuff follows Biden’s earlier decision in July to insist on the August deadline previously set in 2020 by Donald Trump for the withdrawal, a decision the US president relayed to his EU colleagues as a fait accompli. <Source>

This is another Biden lie. The Taliban did not meet Trump’s conditions, so we were not leaving. And, the Trump plan did not surrender Bagram Airbase or allow Americans and Afghan employees to be left behind. Biden has ignored or overturned every Trump initiative, so why is he clinging to one that is obviously a lie?

White House Cuts Audio as Joe Biden Jokes About Stranded Americans

REPORTER: “If Americans are still in Afghanistan after the deadline what will you do?”

BIDEN: *smirks*

*White House cuts audio feed*

Joe Biden’s inability to control his faculties has become more and more obvious over the last seven-plus months of his presidency. In what is almost certainly a symptom of his declining mental state, the president has had numerous angry outbursts and tone-deaf moments since taking office. Today was the scene of another awkward interaction that crossed the line into being outright offensive.

While talking about cybersecurity — because there’s apparently nothing more important going on — NBC News's Peter Alexander asked Biden about what would happen if Americans still remain in Afghanistan after the 8/31 deadline.

That’s when the White House cut the audio feed to obscure his answer.

Luckily, there was a radio pooler in attendance who was recording and we now know what the president said. Per Alexander and multiple other people in the room, Biden actually made a joke about the Americans left stranded in the collapsed, war-torn nation, cracking a smile as he did so.

You can see why they cut the audio. <Source>

SAVE CALIFORNIA, ELECT LARRY ELDER

idiot-newsom

(1)  Notice it is all about fundraising and not one word about making the lives of Californians better or improving a failing state.

(2)  Newsom has already collected over 26 million dollars to GOP front-runner Larry Elder’s $4.5 million.

Stephen,

Adam asked me to reach out to you one more time because time is running out before ballots are counted here for the California recall and it’s going to come down to the wire.

In just a moment, I am going to ask you to make a contribution to the campaign to defeat this partisan, Republican-led recall. Please give me a chance to explain why this request — especially today — is so important.

[OCS: A significant number of Democrats do not like how Newsom is running the state, or else the recall could have never qualified in a state where Democrats greatly outnumber Republicans.

The recall is being led by over-taxed, over-regulated, and Californians who were severely abused by the lockdown. At the same time, the elitist Newsom spent $12,000 on wine at a chi-chi restaurant dining, unmasked, with lobbyists with business before the State.]

Here is the truth:

A few days from today we close the books on the FINAL official fundraising deadline of this recall. When it’s over, we’re legally required to report not just how much money we’ve raised, but how many donations we’ve received.

[OCS: Newsom wouldn’t recognize the truth if it bit him in the ass. There is no significance, legal or otherwise, to a deadline for filing reports. It is little more than a cheap trick to fundraise.]

Everyone will be watching.

[OCS: Only the media and political wonks are watching or care about funding as it is so lopsided in a race where the incumbent does not have donation limits, unlike the recall candidates. Remember, Newsom set the rules and the early voting date to suppress GOP turnout.]

It will be our last chance to show people before we vote the strength of our grassroots campaign. That’s why our goal is not just how much money we raise, but how many donations we receive.

What do you say? Every Californian has a ballot in their hands and this is a close race. Every donation we receive before this deadline counts.

[Every Californian and Democrat fraudster has a ballot in their hands…

A man discovered passed out in a car in a 7-Eleven parking lot had a gun, drugs, and over 300 California recall ballots

On August 16, the Torrance Police Department arrested a man in a 7-Eleven parking lot who was passed out in a car containing Xanax pills, a loaded firearm, methamphetamine, a scale, drivers licenses and credit cards in other individuals' names, and more than 300 unopened mail-in ballots for the California gubernatorial recall election.

Who monitors this election as the GOP establishment doesn’t seem to care about California because it is not a battleground state? You can bet on Democrats finding votes in a close race and contesting the vote until they win.]

Can you please make a $10 contribution to our campaigns to help us beat this partisan Republican recall? We’ll put your donation right to work. We must make sure Democrats return their ballots.

[OCS: It is not a “partisan” recall but an expression of no confidence by abused Californians. Is “make sure” a Democrat fraudster dog whistle as the Democrats are wont to say?]

If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your split donation to Adam Schiff and Stop the Republican Recall of Governor Gavin Newsom will go through immediately:

CHIP IN $10 NOW

CHIP IN $25 NOW

CHIP IN $50 NOW

CHIP IN $100 NOW

I wonder when the paper will investigate the activities of its owner who has business before the State of California?

Controversial Surgeon Philanthropist Named to Federal Panel

Dr Soon-Shiong has been the subject of reports from news outlets including Politico and STAT that have flagged potential conflicts of interest.

A Politico investigation found that most of the spending from his nonprofit research organization went to businesses and nonprofits he controlled. It also found that most of the grants from his organization went to entities that have business relationships with his nonprofits.

STAT reported in March that in 2014 Dr Soon-Shiong gave $12 million for medical research at the University of Utah, but $10 million of that came back to one of his own companies, NantHealth, which would drive the research. <Source>

Bottom line...

Californians, we have a chance to stop the abuse and pain. Recall Newsom and elect Larry Elder.

We are so screwed.

MORE CORRUPTION IN VIRGINIA: BILL KRISTOL ENDORSES CLINTON’S BAGMAN

Under what conditions does someone who self-identifies as a “conservative” Republican endorse a “has been” Democrat with a history of corruption, political chicanery, and being the bagman for the Clinton crime family?

Conservative Bill Kristol endorses McAuliffe in race for Virginia governor

RICHMOND —Bill Kristol is just like all the other disaffected Virginia Republicans whom gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin needs to win over, only famous.

The longtime conservative commentator, who settled in Northern Virginia three decades ago to join the Reagan administration, split with the GOP over President Donald Trump.

With Trump out of the White House, Kristol says he’s ready to support “non-Trump Republicans.”

But Kristol does not put Youngkin, a former Carlyle Group executive, in that category. On Tuesday, he will formally endorse Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former governor seeking a comeback.

He’s a moderate Democrat, and he’s not going to shut down Virginia’s business success, economic success and so forth. He’s the kind of Democrat I’m comfortable supporting,” Kristol said in an interview Monday, when he criticized Youngkin’s “reckless” public health and tax policies as much as his embrace of Trump. <Source>

Just a coincidence… nothing to see here, move along…

Terry McAuliffe's PAC donated to campaign of FBI official's wife

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee donated nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe--the wife of an FBI official who helped oversee the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, the Wall Street Journal first reported.

And the Virginia Democratic Party, a group over which the governor has considerable influence, contributed an additional $207,778 in the form of mailers, the campaign finance records indicate. The WSJ noted that this put donations from entities directly under McAuliffe or influenced by him at nearly $700,000, which was about a third of McCabe’s total campaign fundraising efforts. McAuliffe also reportedly recruited McCabe for the race.  <Source>

Unbelievable for a first-time politician!

Bottom line…

Kristol is not a conservative, nor is he a Republican. He is an ass-kissing sycophant looking for his next job. McAuliffe is still a washed-up corrupt politician looking to get back on the public dole.

Ignore both of these un-American fools.

We are so screwed.
