Semper Fidelis: First Sergeant Bennett, USMC (Retired) UPDATE

Friday, August 27th, 2021

John Bennett, First Sergeant, USMC, Retired

For those who think Joe Biden’s pathetic performance as Commander-in-Chief is an unconscionable dereliction of duty, here’s a retired Marine from Oklahoma who agrees. He’s got some things to say about the entire useless, feckless chain of command.  First Sergeant Bennett pulls no punches:

Steve Bannon interviewed First Sergeant Bennett on WarRoom this morning. This is also worth your time. He’s so right about this entire debacle.

As if all this isn’t bad enough, now comes Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller, USMC, to ask some pointed questions of the chain of command:

Update: According to this report on Daily Caller, Colonel Scheller has been relieved for cause. He’s getting a patriot’s reward from this treasonous administration.

We’ve Failed Our War-Fighters

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

12 Marines, 1 Sailor killed, many wounded, many civilians killed

The situation on the ground in Afghanistan today is beyond reprehensible.  The genesis of this situation is remarkable inasmuch as it’s now clear that it was a planned operation carried into operation by an administration that should never have been in power.  Our fake Commander-in-Chief is a feckless, worthless drone.  He doesn’t know anything.  I’m convinced that he’s not even entirely aware of his own personal surroundings, or much of anything else.  He’s a sock-puppet for people with malevolent motives, and the only thing that still connects with him is his baseline connections to all of his corruption in the past.  Joe Biden isn’t a president any more than Hirohito was the Emperor of Japan.  He too was a puppet for malevolent actors.  The humiliation he was forced to endure was fitting, given his role as a puppet, but Joe Biden’s humiliation is really ours to endure.  Joe’s too far around the bend to be humiliated by much of anything now.  This morning, unknown persons carried out an attack on US forces at/near the gate to the Kabul Airport, killing at least a dozen US Marines, one US sailor, injured dozens more, and killing and maiming scores of civilians.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is on us.  Joe Biden shouldn’t be anywhere near the White House. If he was legitimately elected, we truly failed, and even if it was simply stolen, as I and millions of others are now convinced, we are not off the hook.  We should have fought harder for audits sooner, and we should have insisted by all means that there be a full accounting of our elections.  No, there’s no moral escape clause for us simply because the criminals stole the election.  We had a duty to fight, and fight like Hell, but today, our war-fighters paid the price for all of our surrenders. We failed them, and their blood is on our hands.

Over the last three decades, the quality of the leadership at the highest levels of the uniformed services has been in steep decline.  Worried about social experimentation, and joining the DC/Pentagon-based cocktail circuit has been the focus of the generals and the admiralty.  Spending our treasure at fantastic rates, while spending the blood of our young men and women placed into their charge, these leaders have failed us repeatedly.  We’ve let the service academies that produce the majority of our senior officers become cesspools of social engineering and leftist political indoctrination, and we wonder why they churn out politically correct losers to lead our best, brightest, and bravest.  Our military has been in decline since the end of the Cold War, in part for lack of a clearly-defined mission through most of this era, but mainly because we, who knew better, or ought to have known better, let our politicians turn it into another battleground of political dispute. We’ve let presidents from alternating parties do horrendous damage to it, just as they’ve done to other institutions of government, and we’ve done damnably little about it. Meanwhile, our war-fighters, the hardened men who go to the world’s ugliest locales, have been permitted to suffer under this ping-pong match between those bent on political supremacy, and those too timid to fight for it.

When this so-called “president” was inaugurated in January, he (and those handling him) already had a raft of executive actions ready to go, already vetted by the Department of Justice beforehand, to begin in earnest undoing President Trump’s term expeditiously.  Now he claims to have been hamstrung by Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban, but that a farcical misdirection.  Trump’s canceling of the Iran Deal didn’t stop Biden from immediately re-launching it. Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban didn’t stop Biden from initiating violations of that agreement, or failing to enforce blow-back when the Taliban violated them.  No, Joe Biden’s a liar, and those propping-up this counterfeit president do all they can to buttress his lies, or even author them in many cases.

This brings us back around to the central issue.  Neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris should ever have seen the inside of the Oval Office, except on the basis of an invitation from a legitimate president, and it was our job to prevent it. When the Democrats began, as early as 2019, setting the stage for the plandemic they created and promulgated, together with their Chi-Comm pals, they did so by attacking the laws of our various states.  In places like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, they took advantage of mid-terms wins in the executive offices and judiciaries of those states to set the table.  In places like Arizona and Georgia, we let serious RINOs take over the executive branches, with complete frauds like Katie Hobbs and Brad Raffensberger as the secretaries of state, respectively, both being roughly as Republican as Mitt Romney’s dog. Those two, and others like them, set about to help rig the election while we left it all in Trump’s hands.  We didn’t see what was coming, but 2018 should have been the clue.  When 2020 began with a pandemic, I knew that the old rule was in play: If it happens in an election year, it’s about the election.  Don’t think for one moment that the whole Coronavirus plot wasn’t hatched or at least seized-upon by Democrats, and pushed to the bitter end by them.  These variants we’re now seeing, you should simply call the “Midterms Variants” for ease of understanding. We blissfully slumbered, most of us, as they set everything up for the big steal.  Then they executed it.

Now, seven months into the Biden “presidency,” we see a complete catastrophe, and while his name is on the title, we helped to author it, by failing to stand up in 2018, 2019, and in 2020.  Yes, readers here are some of those who have fought hardest, but the truth is that none of us have fought hard enough.  We’ve let too many among our friends and family fall prey to the media’s false narratives, and we’ve not pushed hard enough for audits and all the rest. This has allowed Joe Biden to do the bidding of those driving him, in a fit of punishment against us, destroying our country one piece at a time, as quickly as possible, from one end to the other.  They’re doing their level best to make sure we can never retake control of any of it.  That’s why they’ve not gone fully after guns just yet.  They’re still securing their coup.  Once it’s secured, our guns will be taken from us. Bank on it.

What happened in Kabul Afghanistan today was the inevitable result of a plan designed to wreck our country.  As they’re coercing our servicemembers to take vaccines that present real dangers, particularly to young males, but all young people generally, our counterfeit president ordered a hasty withdrawal from Kabul that could only result in tragedy.  There was no other way this could go, given the conditions Biden, his henchmen, and handlers set in place.  No rational person who wanted to withdraw from a war zone would do it as it was done. None. Nobody. It wouldn’t be possible to do this accidentally.  The Taliban were supposed to provide perimeter security!  They left computers with all of our citizens names, whereabouts, and so on at the embassy on computers, but just in case the Taliban couldn’t figure out how to access that information, we provided the lists to them directly. That’s right, for all intents and purposes, the Biden administration provided the Taliban a kill list.  We had intelligence about the terror threat being aimed at the airport too, so that when today, the suicide bombers went about plying their trade, going off to meet their maker in Hell, our US Marines were there, doing what they have always done: Protecting America’s interests, defending the places they’re told to defend, and helping the people their training and temperament has told them to help.  The bomb that killed our Marines, and a Sailor who was a medic, ripped through more than their bodies.  Our nation was torn still further, the rending of our country growing more lethal by the moment.

We had a responsibility as citizens who love their country and their countrymen to have stopped this.  It should never have happened.  These villains should never have been permitted to command our troops.  Never.  We cannot now undo this, but we must prevent any more if and while we can.  This must be stopped.  We must demand this be stopped.  We must demand our elections be audited now.  We must demand Joe Biden be impeached and removed now, and the Cackle-Queen too.  When Nancy Pelosi is sworn in, we must push for her impeachment and removal too.  We mustn’t stop.  When we fail, our Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and other war-fighters pay in blood.  When we fail to take our citizenship and our politics seriously, they pay with their lives.  When we fail to see that part of the bargain they strike with us is that while they defend the homeland, we should be defending them from corrupt and malevolent political agendas, we permit those political actors to use them as pawns and subject them to horrors they ought not have known.  There isn’t much time before this tragedy spreads throughout our forces, even if in other places, and by other means.  We must protect them, and that protection begins and ends with removing the insidious forces now directing our government as we look on mostly in silence.  The time for silence is over.  The time for loud voices is now, and if they will not hear us, we must become like Jesus confronting the money-changers in the Temple.  The cost of silence has become far too great already.  It’s only going to get worse.

 

 

The Truth About Afghanistan

Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

Biden Deserves Blame…

There are those screeching now that “we shouldn’t have been there,” and there are those demanding we go back in with guns blazing. I must admit that while I am disgusted with the way we’ve withdrawn, I believe we needed to have withdrawn years ago. Remembering how we wound up in that Hell-hole, it’s worth noting that we went to Afghanistan to impose a reckoning on those who attacked us on 9/11, and also those who sheltered and supported the terrorists.  I don’t think we should have been there beyond the end of the Bush presidency, but then again, I don’t think it should have taken us more than a decade to find Osama bin Laden.  The problem with the entire expedition is that not long after arriving there, it seems we lost focus on our purpose there.  We should have been there for a singular purpose: To locate and destroy the guilty; to abolish their ability to make war upon any nation; to enact justice in a dangerous, sometime monstrous world.  Instead, we deluded ourselves into the belief that we could teach the peoples of Afghanistan “democracy,” for all the good that might do them, when they had not even the basic-most understanding of the concept of rights.  The truth about Afghanistan is a nasty story, and one from which most Americans will too quickly and easily avert their eyes.  We went astray in largest measure because we, the people, permitted this to happen by ceding oversight of our government to our alleged betters in Washington DC. This must be the most important lesson of our age, and it’s one that too many people too easily dismiss.  Yes, Biden’s actions were abominable, and certainly, he and all who helped him plan this should be removed from their posts, but we must measure our roles in it too.  Our apathy has played its own terrible role.

It’s easy to blame politicians. Often, they earn the blame by their foolish ideas and frequently reckless implementations of them. Men like Joe Biden, or the monsters directing him, have no business making decisions about the conduct of this nation’s military affairs. Momentarily ignoring Biden’s peculiar personal shortcomings, such as his clearly advancing dementia, the truth is that Biden’s never done a single thing the right way, never mind doing the right thing from the outset.  He’s always chosen incorrectly, from his time as a junior Senator from Delaware, foisting his notions of segregation on the country, to his decisions later as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, overseeing the show-trial and “high-tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas. Later still, as Vice President, he used his office to pile-up cash from all sorts of nefarious sources, and by illegitimate means. He should never have been the nominee for President, nor any other office of trust under our constitution. He shouldn’t have been permitted to put a lid on his campaign for months on end in the midst of a presidential campaign.  He should never have been permitted to steal an election, or having stolen it, to be permitted to enter the office. In this sense, it is our fault too, because while most of the readers of this site will have voted against the brain-addled charlatan, we were also the people who let the fraudulent secretaries of state be seated in places like Georgia and Arizona without serious inspection of their qualifications or their intentions. In too many ways, we’ve let ourselves be led, rather than choosing the course of our nation.

Donald Trump also wanted to get out of Afghanistan, but clearly, his approach was quite different, the Biden administration’s claims to the contrary notwithstanding. He made clear to the Taliban quite some time ago that if they violated their agreements, and that if they harmed any American, he would descend on them like Hell itself had landed.  The Taliban, after one early attempt to cross him, were taught a difficult lesson. After the election was stolen, and Trump was no longer in office, Joe Biden immediately began the effort to change everything Trump had done. Among these things, the Taliban had agreed to certain timelines with Trump, and Biden ignored it all.  He (or those handling him) was determined to wreck the place.  Nothing he said in his scripted, unquestioned statement to the press on Monday was true.  None of it. He postured about the “buck” stopping with him, but in his statement, he criticized his predecessor as though Donald Trump had somehow been able, from his home in Mar-a-lago to impose his own will on the conduct of the situation in Afghanistan.  Preposterous?  Of course, but nobody in the mainstream media will seriously challenge his assertions.  On Wednesday, he has an “exclusive interview” with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, but no serious person believes he’ll be pressed for any answers on anything important, including particularly his lies.

Biden told us the Afghanis were unwilling to fight. Let’s be clear: The Afghani army fought like Hell these last several years. They lost thousands upon thousands of men fighting against the Taliban.  Biden pulled the rug from beneath them, however, removing all air support, all intelligence, and even the contractors who helped them maintain their equipment, vehicles, and aircraft. It’s one thing to say that an Army won’t fight, but it’s another to remove instantly from them all the infrastructure on which they depended for the fight you expect them to carry out. There was no serious provision for how to get our own people out, never mind the Afghanis who had worked with us, and even now, the Taliban has ringed the Kabul airport to prevent any further Afghanis from making it onto the airport.  They intend to clean up thoroughly once the Americans and the world’s media have finally departed, and by clean-up, I mean a slaughter.

I know most people wanted us to end our two-decades-long engagement in Afghanistan. I can’t help but agree, but I don’t know any of the people who feel this way who think this was carried out in anything like a sensible, honorable fashion.  I know of veterans who, even at this moment, are trying to figure out how they can help the people of Afghanistan, and some ten to forty thousands of Americans still stuck behind enemy lines.  Biden’s people briefed the press and said that no, indeed, Americans weren’t being prioritized for evacuation, and they said it seemingly with glee.  Then today, they reversed themselves on the “prioritization” question, seemingly, at least momentarily, although nobody really knows what they’re doing.  They answered succinctly that no plan had been made on how to deprive materials and weapons left behind to the Taliban, and indeed they are aware that any number of such things, up to and including aircraft, have been left to the loving care of the seventh-century monsters now swarming Kabul.

As easy as it may be to see that Biden has snatched defeat out of the jaws of a restless, difficult neutralization of the conflict, it’s also clear that our expectations were forged during a presidency in which the chief executive routinely got things right. Trump was a species of big cat, while Biden is a much more common brand of goat. Trump was the apex predator to Washington DC’s herds of flighty prey animals.  To expect Biden to even roughly approximate the sorts of results Donald Trump brought is frankly absurd.  Biden does well to walk across the White House lawn without losing his way.

This takes us back to the central issue, and it’s the thing we must confront.  The media is entirely corrupt.  There are so few of them I hold in any regard that it isn’t worth the trouble of listing the bad ones.  You already know the scarce exceptions. The entirety of Washington DC is broken.  There is no department or agency of government, no Pentagon-bound member of the military, and no member of the federal law enforcement or intelligence services to which I afford anything approximating trust.  They’re all either malevolent or incompetent, and frequently both.  Sources of varying veracity report the White House is in absolute disarray.  Nobody wants to get in front of the press, and nobody wants to attach themselves to the catastrophic decisions and inactions of [Fake]President Biden. Most of them view the ongoing cluster as a public relations nightmare, but virtually none of them are concerned with the real blowback that will come from this planned, man-caused disaster. None of their concerns are for the country, or the wider world, but only their narrow places and even narrower reputations within it. With all of this in mind, it comes down to the most important parts in this entire play. Us. You, and I, and our throngs of countrymen. It is we who will be compelled to clean this up, or watch it implode until our lives are reduced to ashes, and the lives of our children and grandchildren with us.

Today, I contacted seven state representatives, and three senators. I again reached out to Governor Abbott, demanding a forensic audit of the 2020 election in Texas. Why? Simply put, the information related by Seth Keshel in Mike Lindell’s CyberSymposium cannot be ignored. Trump shouldn’t have won Texas by six percent, but by sixteen. This is true in every state he won, and every state he lost. There may be as many as ten states that were flipped, but the best guesses say eight.  All we are watching Joe Biden carry into execution is only possible because he’s thus far gotten away with the theft.  With all that’s happening, and with the rate at which our economy is running headlong into stagflation or worse, hyperinflation, we ought to pushing now to capture the attention of our fellow Americans, to enlist their help in focusing on the election.  Every state needs an audit.  It’s not going to happen if we don’t insist on it, and drag these state legislatures, kicking and screaming, to do their jobs.

This country is descending into chaos. It’s going to get much worse.  We cannot afford for this farce to go any further. Joe Biden must go. His whole morally bankrupt administration must be sent packing. The audits need to uncover also which down-ballot elections, such as Senators and Representatives, were also stolen. The only way this can happen is with us pushing it. Nothing else matters. There is no issue that can be resolved so long as 2020 remains unaddressed. The truth about Afghanistan is that it remains only one more symptom of the virulent infection we’re suffering as a people, not from COVID, but from a more sinister contagion: Apathy.

 

Noor bin Ladin: Afghanistan Debacle Designed to Humiliate America

Related but cannot relate to radical Islam

This aired on Bannon’s War Room this morning.  She’s not pulling punches. This is all about making America grovel again.


 

Embrace the Suck

Monday, August 16th, 2021

Embrace the Suck

It’s obvious. People aren’t falling for it outside the DC Swamp. They realize that the most powerful nation on Earth cannot fail this badly without careful planning and coordination. Joe Biden may be non compos mentis, but his handlers are not this stupid.  They knew this would happen, and as the video I posted here makes clear, Biden was asked all of the relevant questions a month in advance in order to give him the cloak of incompetence.  I suggested that the purpose of this planned catastrophe could well be something else.  Perhaps it is to cover up for some other expected event this week, like the results of the Arizona Audit, or perhaps Durham is going to announce indictments.  More likely, I’ve postulated, is that the Chinese Communist Party intends to make a move on Taiwan.  This morning, in the clear light of day, a possible answer emerges. In the Chinese Global Times, we see this headline(H/T Jack Posobiec):

Failure of America in Afghanistan serves as warning to Taiwan secessionists

That’s pretty clear, and so we can expect that China will now make a full-court press on Taiwan, and they will attempt to take over that island nation without firing a shot.  They will point to the weakness of Biden’s administration.  Biden’s administration will avoid involvement and claim that the events in Afghanistan take priority.  Do you understand what’s being done? Biden has spiked Afghanistan in order to suit Beijing’s timetable.  Why?  Remember Hunter Biden?  Remember the compromising material the CCP has on the Bidens? Remember the money? Joe Biden’s administration has sold out the people of Taiwan but if you think that doesn’t effect us, you’re missing the plot.

Taiwan is “Silicon Valley West.” Many of the consumer electronics, and electronic components like processors and chips come from Taiwan. As Steve Bannon this morning asserted on WarRoom Monday morning, the catastrophe will be felt in America in ways you can scarcely imagine.  If you think you’ve seen price inflation in consumer goods already, prepare for the worst to be ahead of us. Bannon said it correctly: “Embrace the suck!”

Your lives are being sacrificed to their cabal. Your whole life is at risk, both in terms of the life you live, and how you live it, and in terms of your actual, material existence.  None of this was “accidental.” The only “intelligence failure” was to purposefully ignore the in-hand intelligence from this Spring.  I think we can understand the motive for this catastrophe, and those waiting for a “false flag” elsewhere have missed the false flag in front of their eyes.  The Afghanistan “failure” is the false flag.  This is the intentional catastrophe.  Will they use it to conceal other things that happen this week? Certainly.  The most important element is giving all of this over to the Chinese Communist Party.  Now we know: Biden is a compromised President, much as we long suspected.

 

The Cloak of Incompetence

Monday, August 16th, 2021

The cloak: “Not possible,” he says.

If you work around governments for any period of time, you’ll encounter a phenomenon that would be funny if the results weren’t so thoroughly tragic. Sometimes, it’s worse than you can guess, and what makes it all the more despicable is how frequently the public officials involved know precisely what they’re doing.  You see, most people innocently go about their lives giving real, creditable efforts at the things they’re paid to do. They may not attain or approach perfection, but for the money, they genuinely give you a solid best effort. This is infrequently the case in government, but they take it a step further.  Often, when they fail, they will claim it was a lack of knowledge, or a lack of money, or a lack of resources, or a lack of good intelligence.  Boiled-down to its lowest common denominator, what they’re telling you is:

“Hey, yeah, we’re incompetent, but what did you expect from a bunch of hacks who complain about not being paid market rates for inferior output? We’ll try harder next time. No, really, we will. We promise…”

As pathetic as that is, and while they use the claim of incompetence to shield themselves from the public’s wrath, there’s a one step more they often take, and it’s a giant leap of audacity that gives them this ability.  It’s not simply that they know they can claim incompetence when they fail, but that they set out intending to fail, using incompetence as a cloak for their malice aforethought.  No matter how basically incompetent you believe Joe Biden may be, or in his case, as I’ve contended, non compos mentis, it cannot be that the entirety of the United States Federal Government, the entire top tier of military leadership, the Congress, the State Department, the intelligence agencies, and the whole blooming lot of them are uniformly and unerringly incompetent.  Were they utterly incompetent, even accidentally, they’d get something right occasionally, but instead what we see is that from A to Z; from soup to nuts; from economics to foreign policy to military policy to spy-craft to virology, they get everything wrong, every time. Ladies and gentlemen, are we really going to fall for this again?  I can see when I’m being conned, and this is no different. Everything happening in Afghanistan today was entirely foreseeable, and indeed, it was foreseen by White House reporters just five weeks ago, on July 8th. If those people can see it, anybody can.

This is planned. They intend to use the shield of incompetence, but more importantly, it is a cloak for their motives. In fact, with the nature of the uncharacteristically blunt questions being posed by the media on the 8th of July, and the uniformity in the precision with which Biden was wrong, exactly wrong, on each and every point, this looks like the set-up to prove his incompetence.  Afterwards, Biden will be able to point back to this moment and proclaim his innocence on foreknowledge.  Nothing happening in this case has anything to do with accidental happenstance, or unlucky timing, or a failure of intelligence.  All of these outcomes were glaringly clear given the actions of Joe Biden’s seemingly hapless administration since January.  I’m going to make an accusation here, and it’s a serious one. I want you all to pay attention, because I’m calling people at the top of our government “traitors.” I mean it precisely.  These people are opening the door for Xi Jinping, and they’re going to let him run the tables in the Pacific, and pretty much any other damned place he likes.  The Taiwanese people must be trembling at this moment, because they’re in terrible danger, and the United States will do nothing to stop what’s coming.

This isn’t a matter of incompetence, as bad as that would be in and of itself.  This is a matter of grave infiltration of the American government. Our entire Department of Justice is corrupt, from top to bottom. The FBI is run by villains who serve political masters, or are on the take, or both.  Our intelligence agencies don’t work for us. They work to destroy us, distract us, and keep us baffled.  They do not serve the American people.  Our military serves political agenda now, along with vast global corporations. They’re looting this nation into oblivion, and you think this is about Republicans and Democrats.  True, Democrats make up most of the DC establishment, a.k.a. “the Swamp,” but not nearly all of it. At least half of your Republican representatives and at least eighty percent of your GOP senators are owned and operated for the interests of said fetid cesspool. Do you know how to tell? Oh sure, a few are saying a couple harsh things about Joe Biden today, but they’ve been watching this build to this crescendo all year, and the best part is that it isn’t finished yet. They said virtually nothing, and participated in the looting besides. “Infrastructure,” anybody?

I won’t assert to you that there’s no incompetence in government. Washington DC is filled with legions of the incompetent, but it’s also brimming with malice, and that malice is aimed at you. The other universal characteristic of the denizens of the Swamp is that in addition to viewing you with contempt, they all believe they’re smarter than all of us. They all believe they’re so much more clever, but the truth is another thing.  Take away their control of the reins of power, and remove from them the ability to confound investigations and hide evidence, and you’d quickly discover how dumb these people really are.  They aren’t evil geniuses.  They’re brutes who hold power. For now. They use incompetence as a cloak for their wickedness, and they hide their wrongdoings behind it.  It’s akin to Hillary’s “I don’t recall” defense.  It seems clever, and it’s another use of incompetence as a cloak for misdeeds. Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your representatives get away with it, or offer to others. Don’t let the media pretend to you that it’s all an accident. It’s all just a big bungle, they’ll insist. Or, perhaps most galling, they’ll blame it on the alleged incompetence of the last guy. Do you see how this works? It’s a con. Open your eyes to the horror.  These people wanted a catastrophe in Afghanistan, or it never would have happened. Do you really believe a bunch of stone-age warriors, even handed modern weapons, can stand up to the combined might of the United States and all the resources it can call forth to employ? There is incompetence in the world, but frankly, we’ve heard this lie before. Over and over.

If we cannot reform this government by removing the traitors from control of it, we must abolish it. That’s really all that remains. We will either live as slaves to these demons veiled behind a curtain of alleged incompetence, or we will remove them and be free. That’s all there is.

Do not be surprised that this entire “fiasco” was designed to cover something else happening in the next several days or weeks. Durham? The Arizona audits? Other disclosures? They do these things for a reason. They don’t play the incompetence card this big unless there’s a serious purpose.

Vietnam 2.0: The Afghanistan Catastrophe The Left Wanted

Saturday, August 14th, 2021

They Love When America Loses

It should be obvious to all readers who have managed to find this site that the United States is under a concerted attack. This attack has many facets, some of them more obvious, and some more difficult to discern.  There is a reason the media is recalling the abandonment of Saigon, helicopters lifting off from the embassy there, as the image they paint, because in factual terms, it is rapidly becoming the situation on the ground in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Donald Trump had a plan to withdraw from Afghanistan in an orderly, peaceable fashion, and while there were some bumps along the road, it had been headed in the right direction.  Then, the left stole the election.  I’m not mincing words about this, and I don’t give a damn who doesn’t like it.  It’s plain as the nose on your face if only you care to see it.  Since the inauguration, the Biden Administration, a.k.a., Barack Obama’s shadow government behind the puppet, has been working around the clock to undo every good thing Trump had done for America, while wrecking anything and diminishing everything left. Biden is a puppet. He’s a Fake President. He’s the patsy for Obama’s revenge. Make no mistake. This is all about revenge against America and Americans. In virtually every decision and action of the Biden administration, it would be nearly impossible to choose a worse course of action than those now being undertaken. Short of launching a nuclear attack on its own people, the US federal government is doing everything within its means and power(and a good deal many outside its limited authority) to wreck the United States. What was the biggest national shame of the last 100 years? The sight of helicopters, desperate people begging to be brought aboard, as the US evacuated from Vietnam.  They want this again.  They love it when America loses. It’s about diminishing America, for the sake of its enemies, and it’s being carried out with an almost gleeful malice aforethought.

There are few things more vile in all of human experience than a government attacking its own citizens. When that attack is directed, engaged, and facilitated by a radical minority that has already succeeded in stealing the legitimate government, whether by force or fraud, what you have is a coup d’etat. Too many foolish people, however, are suckered into the belief that what we’re witnessing is merely a matter of incompetence.  There can scarcely be so much incompetence on Earth as would be required to do by accident all the things the Biden administration has already done by careful design and implementation.

Think of it. Think of all the ways in which the media has shielded Biden over the last year and ask yourself: Why would they now permit you to see in Afghanistan the full scale of the consequence of Biden’s “leadership?” Why now?  It’s simple: This is what they wanted. They don’t care if you see it, and they don’t much care if you know it. They want America diminished as you have known it.  They liked when America was shamed in its retreat from Saigon, just as they gleefully rush to report the withdrawal from Afghanistan’s similarity to the end of American engagement in Vietnam. For Obama and his henchmen, they get to celebrate American defeat in the shadows while their puppet suffers what little heat their lapdog media might unintentionally throw Biden’s way. For them, it’s a win-win.

Just as they celebrate every penny’s increase in the cost of fuel, they are only too happy to see America left destitute by inflating its currency. In just the same way that they are thrilled to wreck American education with Critical Race Theory and as bolstered as they are by coercing service-members to take experimental drugs posing as vaccines, they are ecstatic that America will now take a huge, public black eye on the world stage.  The enemies in China and elsewhere, with whom they conspire, now see their moment of opportunity nearly in reach. China looks at Taiwan now with ever more hungry eyes, and the wreckage their takeover in that nation will have upon America and Americans will make our situation still more desperate.

These people thrive on the diminution of America. Joe Biden is headed for a two week vacation, but it scarcely matters because the Obama crew is still running the show. Biden could be wheeled into cold storage, and the folks in the White House would scarcely notice, but for Kamala, who is Obama’s Biden-minder when she’s not avoiding the press. These people are our enemies. Don’t kid yourself with notions of incompetence, and don’t pretend it will all be fine in the end.  It won’t.  These people are deconstructing America at a frightening pace, and they’re doing it because they hate America and Americans. Their flock of useful idiots are brain-dead drones who will do anything for their masters. Eventually, they’ll discover the truth of the matter, but only long after it becomes too late. There’s no chance we can rely on people associated with or even vaguely supportive of these monsters with righting the ship of state. We’re in real trouble. They love it when America loses. When they reduce America to a slavepit no better than Venezuala or North Korea, they’ll have succeeded, but not a moment sooner. Waiting for Republicans to come to the rescue won’t work. Waiting for Trump to save you isn’t going to help you now. You have to take back control of your country, one county and one precinct at a time, and you need to get in the faces of Republicans who are too weak to act on their own, like Senate President Jake Corman in the Pennsylvania Senate. He’s still sitting on the subpoenas Senator Mastriano asked for two weeks ago.  It’s the people like Corman you must pry from their perches. You must make so much noise that you’re driving them before you. They’ll pretend to be leading a parade, but you’ll be driving them. It’s our only hope. America will not survive four years of this, and if left in power, we’ll never be rid of them again. It’s their Vietnam 2.0, and they like it. The difference is, while Americans might make it out of Kabul with their skins, the left is building the horrors of post-evacuation Vietnam right here, in America.  They love it.

Note to Obama: America Hasn’t Fallen Short – You Have

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Blaming America First

This President possesses a peculiar penchant for knocking his own country and countrymen.  In his statement during a joint press conference with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, he explained how America had fallen short of its ideals in Afghanistan, but I wonder about the meaning and the relevance of this claim.  After all, who has been at the helm of American efforts in Afghanistan (or anywhere else) these last four year?  The other problem with his statement is that he references ideals.  I have serious doubts that he’s acquainted with the ideals of America, as evidenced by his repeated attacks on liberty.  No, when he says America has “fallen short,” what he means is that you and I have fallen short, or that our troops have fallen short, but the punishing truth is that the only manner in which the American people may have fallen short had been in missing the opportunity to eject him from office.  To the degree America may have failed in its engagements anywhere around the globe, the truth is quite easy to observe:  Mr. Obama, America has not fallen short.  You have!

To suggest that our oft-deployed troops who spend more time in foreign pest-holes than they do at home have in any measure failed is to ignore both the scale of their mission and the limitations placed upon them by their Commander-in-Chief.  In Afghanistan particularly, our troops are saddled with the grim task of pacifying a region that is inherently unsuited to that end, while looking nervously over their shoulders to see if our alleged ‘friends’ and ‘allies’ in the Afghan Army will open fire on them from behind.  The Chain of Command has created rules of engagement that are so patently absurd that our soldiers must now fear both to follow them or not follow them, because to follow them can be a suicidal act, and to not follow them can result in punitive legal action against them.

Of course, before we descend even to the nuts-and-bolts of a particular policy, we must examine what Mr. Obama considers the “ideal.”  For most Americans, the ideal in Afghanistan is to exterminate the terrorists, and to gain victory by totally annihilating the people who together with al Qaeda fashioned the capacity to attack the United States on 9/11, and in other places and times.  That’s the American ideal.  Obama’s ideal in Afghanistan is something else altogether, and it’s patently clear that it’s an end never to be achieved:  To make peace with an intractable enemy whose only wish and desire is to kill us, even if they must strap bombs on their own children to do so.  Obama’s notion of the ideal is in conflict with what America is and has been all through its nearly two-and-one-half centuries long history, requiring America to volunteer as a sacrificial lamb for those who want to kill it anyway.

To make friends of enemies that hate you is an impossibility.  We did not seek to make friends of the Germans or the Italians or Japanese in WWII.  Only after pounding them into complete submission did we seek to make peace, but even then, we did not make peace with those who had been conducting the ideology driving the conflict on their side.  We merely asserted that they would now be in full compliance with our will, or we would pummel them into dust, resuming the combat against them.  This is the American ideal of how a war is to be conducted, because the American ideal recognizes the sad realities of war, and the sickening aggregation of human frailties that leads inevitably to them.

Mr. Obama does not adopt the American ideal for war-making, or near as this writer can discern, much of anything else.  If America has fallen short of his ideals, that may be just as well because his ideals are not attainable on this Earth.  His ideals lead to the construction of walls, and the building of gulags, and to the unemployment and welfare lines.  His ideals end with an unarmed citizenry unable to oppose a growing, oppressive state.  Those will be your choices if you are to be governed by the ideals of Mr. Obama and his henchmen.  It is not possible to attain the Utopia he has imagined in his narrow mind, but he doesn’t care how great will be the human carnage left in his wake because he sees those things as “bumps in the road,” much as Mayor Bloomberg now suggests that if his new pain medication regulations in New York cause some unnecessary pain to patients, they must simply suck it up.

Imagine living your entire life dominated by these people, who disregard the torments they inflict on your lives with a shrug.  Given a chance, that will be the nature of our existence, but for our soldiers toiling away in kill-zones like Afghanistan, this is already the case.  There, Obama’s ideals have obtained the condition to which we might all look forward under the next four years of his so-called “leadership.”  There is death everywhere, and behind every corner lurks another killer who is sheltered by rules of engagement that permit him to slip away again, unharmed, and free to work his terror against you.  Famine and human need are monumental, but no amount of distributing goods and services can satisfy the want.  Afghanistan is a grim disaster in human terms, on all sides of the battle, and all is being directed and managed from the office of the “idealist” at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington DC.

For the President of the United States to stand before the world and proclaim that America has “fallen short” of ideals that he has constructed within the narrow confines of his skull is not to impeach America, but instead to admit that his own ideals are unattainable on this Earth.  Our soldiers have not failed this President, but he has failed them, and awfully so.  Soon, this same despotic mind will tell us, the American people, how we have failed to live up to the twisted ideals with which he has been inculcated and indoctrinated by such thoroughly bent minds as those of Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis. The truth is that on our current course, America will soon resemble Afghanistan in both imitation and mockery of Obama’s bloody “ideal.”

The American people are as fallible as any other, but it takes a peculiarly wretched mind to lead us to the disasters we now endure both at home and abroad.  In this moment, and in this speech lies a grave confession for all those with the courage to recognize it: Barack Obama has established a bizarre and twisted ideal that is unattainable, but he now blames America for failing to reach it.  You see, in his view, the ideal is wonderful, but it is only your human failings that prevent you from meeting the challenge.  As a narcissist, in his view, there is nothing wrong with the ideal to which he adheres, but only with you (and America) for failing to approach it.  In his view, it is you who fail to perfect yourselves, but not his failure for expecting compliance with an ideal that would require you to drink his preferred flavor of the same deadly koolaid.  This false attribution of guilt is the hallmark of statists, seeking always to blame their victims for the vast failures they have initiated.  The truth is something else, and it’s simply this:  Barack Obama’s vision has fallen short of America’s ideals, and the sooner we re-establish them, the sooner our long national nightmare will come to an end, because unlike his, they are attainable on this Earth.

It’s not America, Mr. Obama.  It’s you.

Marines Disarmed for Panetta Visit: Why?

Panetta Addresses Troops

On Wednesday, the story came out that Marines in Afghanistan had been disarmed for the visit of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.  Many were puzzled or disgusted over this, for the implications about which it speaks volumes.  If the Secretary of Defense is that worried about our own troops, perhaps he should not be serving in that post.  Of course, I have a feeling I understand the real reason for this policy, and it may not be about our troops, or at least not all of them.  Could it be that Secretary Panetta doesn’t want to be scored as another victim of military “workplace violence,” should another Muslim soldier angry about recent events try to act out his or her anger? I offer this only half in jest, because the behavior of leadership in this case is perplexing. I don’t understand why the Marines were treated in this way, and it can hardly inspire confidence in our service-members if they are led to doubt whether they have the full trust of the chain of command.

As we know, the Obama administration has done its best to sweep Army Major Nidal Hasan’s act under the carpet by labeling it as “workplace violence” rather than as an act of terrorism, despite all of the evidence demonstrating the link between Hasan and militant Muslim extremists.  I was astonished to learn about the details of Panetta’s visit, and that our own Marines were disarmed allegedly because our Afghan allies who were in attendance were likewise disarmed.  As an Army veteran myself, I could see why the security details of dignitaries might have some concern, particularly in the aftermath of the incident last weekend with the soldier who went on a shooting rampage, killing sixteen Afghan civilians, but I also know that was an aberration and says nothing about the entire force.

Still, I find it incredible that the Secretary of Defense would take this view of his own military.  I wonder if he was worried about another act of “workplace violence.”  After all, isn’t that what the Obama administration calls it?  When a lone attacker plowed through a fence and into a ditch at the airbase where Panetta was about to arrive, I would have classified it as an act of terrorism, but with Panetta being part of the military hierarchy, wouldn’t this merely be classified by the Obama administration as another act of “workplace violence?”

I wonder if the Obama administration knows how much contempt it has wrought by that classification.  This sort of thing has ramifications not only for soldiers in the field, but the whole force structure’s confidence in the chain of command.  Perhaps that is part of the trouble here:  Being near a large military base, I’ve heard an unusual number of grumbles about the chain of command and its general temperament with respect to the military.   That’s never a healthy proposition for the military, and I know the lower end of the chain of command struggles to tamp down that sort of thing.  Still, I’m certain the Obama administration is conscious of the growing displeasure from some wider body of the military.  The budget cuts, the ridiculous rules of engagement, and all the over-tasking our service-members now endure are adding to the strain.

I wonder if this was the idea of Panetta, or his own staff, or whether it was the product of an abundance of caution on the part of local commanders.  Either way, it signifies a break-down in the long-established and traditional notion of trust between civilian leadership and the uniformed services, and I find it atrocious on all counts.  I remember being visited in the field as a young soldier by dignitaries including the Secretary of the Army, John Marsh, under Ronald Reagan, and we didn’t put our weapons away.  Of course, that was a different environment, or under different global conditions, but it was also a far different chain of command that viewed its fighting men and women with reverence.  Unless they had real and specific concerns, this will only serve to have widened the gulf in confidence between civilian leadership and our military, and that is never a happy development for the United States, or its Armed Services.

 

 

What If Christians in America Reacted Like Muslims in Afghanistan?

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

One Thing Leads To Another

I can’t help but notice that the President and his friends in the leftist establishment press are offering a dangerous precedent for anybody who wants to notice it.  As Barack Obama apologizes to the Taliban, Afghans, and Muslims everywhere for the inadvertent burning of a few copies of the Qur’an, the reaction is even more strident and increasingly violent.  The more violent they become, the more Obama and his friends in the press grovel, to the extent that he’s now got the entire military chain of command making apologies and running around in panic that they have offended Islam.  Watching all of this, I had a sudden thought:  What would happen if American Christians reacted to the contraception mandate in precisely the same way?  Would Obama grovel before them too, or like his bowing all over the Middle East, is that reserved solely for the Muslim world?  To watch this president in action is to observe a slow-motion train-wreck, if you believe he’s incompetent, but I no longer hold that view.  No president could act so recklessly.  If Christians reacted in a more vociferous manner, would President Obama apologize and grovel for them too, or would he crack down on his own countrymen, as I suspect?

This display couldn’t be more disgusting, and yet, given the way Christians and others of faith(excepting Muslims) are treated by the current administration, maybe that’s the answer:  Americans of faith are simply too docile, and too willing to “turn the other cheek.”  Of course, as Americans of faith have long since discovered, when it comes to the Obama administration, and the mainstream media, turning the other cheek has begun to give the appearance of somebody watching a tennis match.  Christians particularly have taken a beating from this administration, and Obama’s willing accomplices in the media carry out shameless attacks on people of faith under the general auspices of “reporting the news.”

I realize Christians are not very likely to “go Taliban” as the Afghans have been doing this week, but the reaction of the Obama administration may offer a bit of a clue.  I’m not advocating violence, of course, but maybe it’s time to put together a “million Christian march” or some such thing to remind the administration Who is in charge.  Apparently, the administration is quite fearful of the mess now ongoing in Afghanistan, and at the rate things are going, I can see us evacuating via helicopter off the roof of our embassy there.  Not satisfied to turn the fight into Vietnam out in the field, the liberals are accomplishing the seemingly impossible: We’re going to wind up with video out of Afghanistan very much like we saw as the United States evacuated from Saigon, leaving people desperate to escape clamoring to be lifted out too. Leftists everywhere will celebrate.

Of course, the way this country is being led into the ground, Christians may not have to do much.  If the Occupiers have their way, they’ll create a similar scene at the White House, and Barack Obama will fly out in Marine One, leaving the likes of Biden and Carney to fend for themselves among the restless natives.  This is the state of our rudderless nation as Barack Obama takes one victory after the other and converts them into complete disasters.  His apologies have done nothing but to encourage the mobs of angry Afghans, and it’s a disturbing picture when you realize they are merely acting out on the basis of that which they believe.  Call it irrational if you want, and yes, they’re barbaric murderers who have killed Americans in their blood-lust, but consider this:  Barack Obama is begging their forgiveness for a “wrong” that has been shown to be an accidental insult, and not the act of malice.

What are we then to make of a president who acts with malice toward the people of faith in his own country? He insults Catholics, demeans Christians, and tells them their faith must be subservient to his government, while the government he leads and administers bows in surrender and supplication before the rioters in Afghanistan.  How is an American Christian or Jew to take this, realizing that he does the same at home, since we cannot say “Islamic Terrorism” with respect to Major Nidal Hasan, but instead call it “workplace violence?”  Is it not stunning to see an American president who evinces respect for foreign savages who practice a religion he does respect, while he ignores the consciences of Americans who practice a religion he apparently holds in contempt?

This is abominable, sickening behavior, not only by the murderous thugs in Afghanistan, but also by the irresponsible administration in Washington DC.  Where a decent President would have ignored the incident in his official capacity, knowing that to acknowledge it would give it more gravity and not less, and in a situation in which a responsible president would have loosed the dogs of war in their own defense, Barack Obama not only has harmed us, and especially the troops under his command, but he has ignored the chance to deliver a lesson to the Afghans who now rise up in open rebellion against us over a mistake.

Any decent respect for our country and its position in this world would have led him to treat this entire incident differently, but he has no respect, neither for the country nor for the office he occupies.  Just once, I would like to see him react in a similar fashion when Americans of faith were rightly offended, rather than working to offend them more thoroughly in the next instance.  Until Barack Obama leaves that office, our nation will suffer one disaster after the next, and all of his making, and as I wrote this past week, I no longer believe the line that it’s all due to incompetence.  He’s intentionally paying respect to those who have none for us, and he’s one of them in spirit, if not in open worship.  While he reaches out to offended Muslims the world over, he turns his backside to us, and the moon you’re being shown isn’t the crescent common to Islam.
