Years ago, Harris was accused of not taking care of a problem involving sexual harassment while serving as attorney general of the Golden State. She also asked a Catholic judge to rescind his Knights of Columbus membership. But those issues are just the very tip of the iceberg. This lady has a lot of issues. Something she’s great at, though? Lying.
The onus for finding homes for these people falls on religious and charitable groups. The government disperses then wipes their hands of them. These refugees have no say in their eventual home state and think of those lucky folks who go from the desert of Afghanistan to the tundra of Alaska. They have no money, job, home, cannot speak the language, and their children need to assimilate to new schools in unfamiliar locations.
Through President Joe Biden’s first 100 days in office, he had either proposed or implemented over $6 trillion in new, federal spending. Joe was spending like his son Hunter during a Vegas coke binge. The problem is, of course, Biden was spending money that doesn’t even exist. We were spending more than ever before and putting the country into more debt. Additionally, in late-January when Biden was inaugurated, the economy was already heating up as lockdowns and other Covid measures were being lifted, so we didn’t need more government spending. But that didn’t matter to Joe.
For generations, we veterans have cherished our Brand and held the treasures of our accomplishments close to our hearts because after we leave the military, those memories and that legacy of our Brand is usually all that the Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine has in exchange for his or her service and sacrifice.
Cultural Imperialism Through Western ‘Art’: Did This Ill-Advised Effort Contribute To The Afghanistan Failure?
The Afghans rejected the “woke” agenda being force-fed to them by know-it-alls who intruded into their lives with no regard for what they thought and felt. Indeed, there is a very sizable segment of American society who react similarly to the cultural dictates of the institutional powers-that-be. Will they ever listen? Will they ever? Can they even hear?
The three men testifying did their best not to throw President Joe Biden under the bus, but they had to respond to direct questions. Their answers indicate that Biden was not truthful when telling the country that all his military advisors agreed with his plan to exit Afghanistan.
After limiting him to a 2-minute phone call to his parents when he was taken into custody, the Pentagon has refused to allow him any further contact with his parents, or with his wife and three young children. Now facing court-martial, the 17-year Marine officer stands to be dishonorably discharged and stripped of his retirement benefits, future VA benefits, and health insurance for his family.
he medals and accolades by the Commander in Chief will not assuage the loss of loved ones to the families of our fallen. How much “ex gratia” payments will make an Afghan family forget having to bury the remains of a U.S. mistake? These questions will remain unanswered by this Administration. Biden and his minions still contend that this farce of an operation was well-planned and that all supported every aspect of it.
There some are lessons we can take away from the Afghan experience, ones that many learned long ago. First, don’t tolerate any leftist blather about “ethnocentrism,” multiculturalism or cultural relativism. While liberals are fuzzy-headed relativists, they only preach the above when it serves to destroy Western norms they dislike.
At what point does a presidential order that results in the leaving behind enemy lines thousands of US citizens, untold numbers of Afghani translators who were promised protection for their service to the U.S. military, and $85 billion in U.S. equipment, weapons, ammunition, Humvees, and aircraft, become an unlawful order?
Now, twenty years later, those of us who recognized the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as an escalation of the war against America and, in fact, against Western civilization by radical Islam and its allies, and swore we would “Never Forget”, are angry to see so many Americans have actually forgotten or no longer care.
During a September 1st news conference, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the U.S. military had evacuated a total of six thousand Americans. That would suggest there could be as many as five thousand Americans still left stranded as real live Taliban hostages, when one recalls the lowest figure given at the beginning of evacuation operations was eleven thousand Americans were there in-country, with a high confidence that as many as 40,000 total were spread across Afghanistan.
These arms will not go to the Afghan people to be used for their freedom but to tyrants to be used for their enslavement, due to the free land and military-grade goodies being handed over from Biden to a growing terrorist power in Afghanistan.
Over 400,000 Americans were killed during WW2, including the thousands who died on D-Day in one of the most breathtaking examples of courage and resolve in human history. And very few Americans complained – about the rationing, or the inconveniences, or the draft, or the massive amounts of casualties we endured. As a result, in less than four years after Pearl Harbor, the tyrannical regimes of Hideki Tojo, Adolph Hitler, and Benito Mussolini weren’t just defeated, they were obliterated.
Joe Biden owns this bloody, deadly attack on our U.S. Marines, since his evacuation of Bagram Air Base and the retreat of our forces allowed the Taliban to release some of the worst Al Qaeda and Isis terrorists known to the free world, and put them back on the battlefield. He owns this because he has allowed the Taliban to dictate to him the terms of America’s retreat, essentially America’s surrender, as well as following such an incredibly weak security plan for the Kabul Airport that it boggles the mind.
It ain’t getting better. If you want to know what’s coming, there’s a real Good Book out that’ll tip you off. The last chapter has it all – blood, guts, fear, excitement, love, hate, fantasy, and the world’s greatest villain and superhero in a fight to the finish. It’s good stuff; I highly recommend it.
We have an oddly shaped political structure that has been coordinated to dominate our country. We have bankers, consultants, minorities, college children and bureaucrats to name a few. These are unnatural political alliances that come under strain as various outside events must be manipulated or recategorized for this disparate group to remain united.
Who in Creation would want to live the way Taliban guys live, anyway? The women do all the work so the guys can practice being vicious curs on any woman they catch all by herself. Mind you, that’s no easy thing. They gotta take care to beat, rape, and kill only women who have no menfolk who might take umbrage. Some guys just got no sense of fun at all.
It was so bad that you almost [but not quite] [okay, not at all] felt sorry for Gropin’ Joe. But then the scutter comes out sounding all boastful – we’re monitoring them closely, they know we’re watching, the full might of the United States, on and on like that in stentorian tones – all so disconnected from what actually did happen that it took a few minutes to credit that Joe was actually mouthing such stuff.
When I see the images come across the screen from Afghanistan, I don’t just see a country falling apart. I see little girls who will no longer be able to continue their education. I see women whose lives are about to be destroyed. I see American allies who are in imminent danger. I see my friends who are terrified and aren’t sure that they will even make it to tomorrow.
In this installment of their weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative examine the six most troubling consequences resulting from the disastrous decision by President Joe Biden to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan.
Where most South Vietnamese had relatively little or no direct experience with the North Vietnamese before we abandoned them, Afghans knew firsthand what awaited them at the hands of the Taliban. Joe said there would be no scenes of people hanging onto helicopters lifting off from the US embassy. He was right. What we saw was people hanging onto jets taking off, then falling off in midair.
The White House can’t do anything because of Trump; they are helpless because Trump was there. Trump was once president, so we have to burn down the country, why? Because of Trump. Don’t like it? That’s because you’re racist. And Trump.
The current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley was in charge of training that army, and the taxpayers supplied them with quality weapons. When push came to shove, they didn’t just abandon their weapons, they gave them to the Taliban. Well, except for the ones that joined them.
JFK Had The Cuban Missile Crisis, Reagan Had The Berlin Wall, And Biden’s Defining Moment Is The Fall Of Afghanistan
Indeed, Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan, subject the Afghan people to unspeakable war crimes, totally destroy our national credibility among friends and foe alike, and to put all Americans at an exponentially higher risk of a terrorist attack has been implemented for a much more cynical purpose: politics.
