For bloviating politicians like Mr. Biden and so many others – including several Republicans – today’s technology, particularly social media, is a menace. Decades-old diatribes they have completely forgotten about, and of which they are counting you having forgotten as well, come back to haunt them. Such is the case with this video.
Last week, Sen Jim Risch (R-ID) released a report with a somewhat different accounting of the state of our current hostage crisis. His report estimates that 15,000 Americans were left behind when we precipitously fled from Afghanistan. He further estimates that since our departure, 6,000 of those Americans have been rescued by private organizations. Let that sink in.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is where the hearts and minds of the good and decent Americans lie today, with America’s warriors who served Her in unquestioning fashion and all too often gave their lives in the process, to ensure another attack like September 11, 2001 would never be possible again from a force similar to Al Qaeda that was given sanctuary by their Taliban allies and hosts in Afghanistan.
The Afghans are culturally backward and will never be a model of Western Civilization. They are tribal, politically unreliable and corrupt, avoid strong alliances unless someone is standing on their collective neck or gives them bags of money, have a chief export of one of the worst substances known to man (heroin). They kill young girls for attending school and call such abominations honorable.
