As ISIS-K continues to target U.S. troops following the suicide bombing outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul which killed 13 American soldiers and more than a hundred Afghan civilians, doubts regarding Biden Administration’s reliance on the Taliban are beginning to pick up steam.

An August 28 drone strike in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province reportedly killed a Taliban a “facilitator” involved in planning attacks against Americans.  It is unknown whether these ISIS-K members were involved in the Kabul airport bombing.  The Biden administration has been criticized for refusing to release their names.

On August 29, a U.S. drone strike targeted a pick-up truck loaded with what the Pentagon says were ISIS suicide bombers. Secondary detonations from explosives in the vehicle reportedly killed 10 nearby Afghan civilians. Family members of the civilians speaking to the Los Angeles Times, however, allege their vehicle was improperly targeted by the drone and not struck by a secondary explosion.

Allegations that the drone strike may have been misdirected led to questions about the quality of intelligence capability available to the U.S. in Afghanistan during the on-going withdrawal. Some observers expressed concern that the U.S. may be relying on the Taliban for intelligence on ISIS.

Hudson Senior Fellow Rebecca Heinrichs asked on twitter, “Are we relying on the Taliban to tell us when/where to strike?” after a Taliban spokesman made an announcement regarding the U.S. attack. ISIS-K later launched a rocket attack targeting the airport, but without any casualties.

Questions also have been raised about whether drone strikes will have any real effect on reducing terrorist threats to the Kabul airport before U.S. forces withdraw on August 31 because the Taliban released thousands of ISIS-K members from the Bandar airbase prison.  This essentially flooded Kabul with Islamist terrorists determined to kill American citizens who will not be deterred by U.S. drone strikes.

The willingness of the Biden Administration to rely on the Taliban to provide security has come under increasing fire, particularly following a  Washington Post article which alleged that the Taliban offered to allow the U.S. to provide security for the city of Kabul during the evacuation. The Biden Administration reportedly declined:

In a hastily arranged in-person meeting, senior U.S. military leaders in Doha — including McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command — spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s political wing. “We have a problem,” Baradar said, according to the U.S. official. “We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.” Throughout the day, Biden had remained resolute in his decision to withdraw all American troops from Afghanistan. The collapse of the Afghan government hadn’t changed his mind. McKenzie, aware of those orders, told Baradar that the U.S. mission was only to evacuate American citizens, Afghan allies and others at risk. The United States, he told Baradar, needed the airport to do that. On the spot, an understanding was reached, according to two other U.S. officials: The United States could have the airport until Aug. 31. But the Taliban would control the city.

Meanwhile, the Biden Administration continues to demonstrate other priorities besides the evacuation of American citizens and the most-at-risk Afghan personnel. While getting accurate numbers on the total number of Americans and Afghan Special Immigration Visa holders evacuated so far has been difficult, Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby told reporters of the 122,000 evacuees from Kabul of them only 5,400 were Americans.

Despite claims by the Biden Administration that all Americans who wished to do so would be able to evacuate, multiple stories have emerged of U.S. citizens or green card holders being denied entry at the Kabul airport by Taliban fighters or receiving messages that the evacuation is over. There are estimates that over 1,000 Americans will be left behind when U.S. forces withdraw tomorrow.

Moreover, the U.S. government reportedly handed over a list of U.S. citizens and Afghan allies to the Taliban as part of their effort to facilitate their movement through checkpoints, raising concerns the Taliban would use the list to exact retribution or take American hostages.  After seeming to acknowledge this list last week, Secretary of State Blinken denied it yesterday in news interviews.

BREAKING: Last U.S. Plane Leaves Kabul, All Military Personnel Are Out; BUT SEVERAL HUNDRED OR MORE AMERICANS WERE LEFT BEHIND

NBC has confirmed with the Department of Defense that the last Air Force transport plane carrying U.S. troops has left Kabul, Afghanistan, hours ahead of the official August 31 deadline. The chaotic exit cost 13 American lives, 180 Afghan deaths, and scores of injuries.

In a press briefing, General Kenneth McKenzie said, “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 of 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.”

There are still several hundred Americans in the country, according to NBC. As of this morning, CNN reporter Clarissa Ward was in touch with American citizens unable to get to the airport. According to Andrea Mitchell, none of the last five planes to leave Hamid Karzai International Airport contained any Americans. Rescue operations ended after the American drone strike of a car allegedly filled with explosives and headed for the airport in Kabul earlier today.

The administration has said the rescue operations would continue. A State Department memo issued earlier today in cooperation with dozens of other nations set the expectation that these evacuations will continue. However, it is not clear how the NATO countries plan to accomplish future missions with no diplomatic presence.

When the last plane went wheels up, the Taliban officially took control of the country. Earlier, members of the radical Islamist group were seen flying Black Hawk helicopters abandoned in the hasty evacuation of Bagram Air Base. The Taliban publicly promised amnesty for Afghans who worked with U.S. and coalition forces. Whether this is a commitment they intend to keep will remain to be seen.

North Korea Restarts Weapons-Grade Yongbyon Nuclear Reactor Halted Under Trump

North Korea apparently has restarted the Yongbyon nuclear reactor, capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium, that had been shuttered since 2018.

The International Atomic Energy Agency reported that “since early July, there have been indications, including the discharge of cooling water, consistent with the operation of the reactor,” according to a report late Sunday in the Wall Street Journal.

The IAEA called the move “deeply troubling,” and in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Yahoo! News reminded readers on Monday:

In 2019, North Korea said it would shutter the Yongbyon reactor and additional facilities if the United States provided sanctions relief, but the offer was rejected by then-President Donald Trump, who said it didn’t go far enough.

That was two years ago. Apparently, under Presidentish Joe Biden, North Korea feels freer to re-start its nuclear weapons program.

I’m far from the only one saying so.

Still reeling from the ongoing deadly chaos he set loose in Afghanistan, Biden has been accused of giving North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un a “blank cheque to rebuild North Korea nuclear programme.”

That’s according to Dutch European Parliament Member Michiel Hoogeveen, who “fears Mr Biden’s administration is guilty of a failure to understand the North Korean mindset which could increase the risk of future conflict.”

You have to wonder if South Korea, currently led by center-left President Moon Jae-in, was aware of what was going on at Yongbyon before scheduling this week’s meeting with US officials on increasing “humanitarian cooperation” with the North.

One doesn’t simply restart a nuclear weapons program overnight, so it’s likely that the North Koreans have been working to do so since long before Biden’s botched bugout—but after last year’s election results were known.

Whether it’s the Taliban blitzing through Kabul, North Korea’s nukes, China’s newly aggressive anti-American propaganda, or the rebirth of ISIS, America’s enemies sense weakness in the White House.

Where we’ll be tested next is anyone’s guess.

Report: Pentagon Had Advanced Intel on ‘Mass Casualty Attack’ at Kabul Airport Attack But Failed to Stop It

BY MEGAN FOX

Politico has released bombshell information, obtained through a confidential source at the Pentagon, angering top military officials.

The informant gave copies of detailed notes from three conference calls to Politico that showed military brass knew that a deadly attack was coming 24 hours before the suicide bomb at Kabul airport and was unable to stop it. Politico reported:

Speaking from a secure video conference room on the third floor of the Pentagon at 8 a.m. Wednesday — or 4:30 p.m. in Kabul — Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin instructed more than a dozen of the department’s top leaders around the world to make preparations for an imminent “mass casualty event,” according to classified detailed notes of the gathering shared with POLITICO.

During the meeting, Gen. Mark Milley, the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned of “significant” intelligence indicating that the Islamic State’s Afghanistan affiliate, ISIS-K, was planning a “complex attack,” the notes quoted him as saying.

Commanders calling in from Kabul relayed that the Abbey Gate, where American citizens had been told to gather in order to gain entrance to the airport, was “highest risk,” and detailed their plans to protect the airport.

Later that day, officials on another call decided to close the Abbey Gate by that afternoon. The closing plan was stalled when it was decided to leave the gate open to allow for British allies to continue evacuating their personnel through that gate. The delay was a deadly mistake. A suicide bomber entered Abbey Gate around 6 p.m. on Thursday and detonated a bomb that killed almost 200 people, including 13 U.S. military personnel.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby had no statement to make about why the gate closure was delayed so long after the recommended deadline but did take time to criticize the press for digging into what happened leading up to the deadly attack.

“This story is based on the unlawful disclosure of classified information and internal deliberations of a sensitive nature,” Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said in a statement. “As soon as we became aware of the material divulged to the reporter, we engaged Politico at the highest levels to prevent the publication of information that would put our troops and our operations at the airport at greater risk.

“We condemn the unlawful disclosure of classified information and oppose the publication of a story based on it while a dangerous operation is ongoing,” he continued.

An unnamed official spoke with Politico anonymously and said that the threats were serious, numerous, and impossible to avoid.

“U.S. forces at HKIA were aware of and accounting for a variety of threats, and exercising extreme vigilance,” the official said, using an acronym for the Kabul airport. “We took numerous actions to protect our forces and the evacuees, but no amount of effort will completely eliminate the threat of a determined enemy.”

Relationships with the Taliban as allies to help get the evacuation going faster haven’t panned out and Taliban militants have held up convoys of evacuees needlessly.

On the call, Vasely also described how NATO allies were having problems with the Taliban obstructing an earlier convoy, including Swedes, Danes, Dutch and other personnel.

Despite the tensions, the military continued relaying to the militants precise details about timelines for the withdrawal and the processes for getting American citizens through the gates, Vasely said, according to the call notes. They also allowed the Taliban to operate buses picking up people for evacuation, he added.

Military officials do not believe that the Taliban was colluding with ISIS in carrying out the attack, but a lack of trust between U.S. Forces and the Taliban contributed to communication problems.

“The ability of [the Taliban] to protect us and assist in pursuing [American citizens] and other groups — that willingness will decay, and we’re seeing leading edge indicators of that today,” McKenzie said on the Wednesday morning call. “We do need the agreement of the [Taliban] to pursue our principal objectives of getting out [American citizens] and other priority groups.”

McKenzie then offered a grave prediction about the success of the evacuation effort.

“We’re not going to get everyone out. We’ll get 90-95 percent,” McKenzie said. The call notes did not specify if he was talking about American citizens, or everyone who wanted to evacuate.

It is clear that the Biden administration and our military brass botched this withdrawal worse than anyone could have imagined, and the chaos that ensued led to the inability of our institutions to protect our military members, Americans overseas, our Afghani allies, and civilians on the ground in Kabul. Will anyone face the music for this hatchet job?

Doctors Refuse to Provide Care for Unvaccinated COVID Patients

BY RISHMA PARPIA

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2021/08/doctors-refuse-to-provide-care-for-unvaccinated-covid-patients/;

Doctors throughout the United States are refusing to treat patients, even seriously ill patients, who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.1 2 This comes at a time when there are a rising number of COVID-19 Delta variant cases occurring throughout the United States, with some hospitals in certain states being overwhelmed by the new cases.3

Jason Valentine, MD, a physician at Diagnostic and Medical Clinic Infirmary Health in Mobile, Alabama is one doctor that will not treat unvaccinated patients. He said:

We do not yet have any great treatments for severe disease, but we do have great prevention with vaccines. Unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine, and some end up severely ill or dead. I cannot and will not force anyone to take the vaccine, but I also cannot continue to watch my patients suffer and die from an eminently preventable disease.

He added:

Therefore, as of October 1st, 2021, I will no longer see patients that have not been vaccinated against COVID-19. If you wish to keep me as your physician, documentation of your vaccination will suffice. If you wish to choose another physician, we will be happy to transfer your records.4

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people who are vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines can still get infected with the virus, known as “breakthrough cases,” which also means there is a risk vaccinated persons can transmit the infection to others.5

Doctors in South Florida Protest in Response to A Surge in Unvaccinated Patients

Seventy-five doctors recently participated in a symbolic walkout of a hospital in Palm Beach Gardens and other hospitals and medical offices in South Florida. All of the doctors were off-duty.6 The doctors who were part of this protest said that the majority of COVID-19 cases they are witnessing in their hospitals are among unvaccinated patients. The protest was to draw the attention of the public to get vaccinated.7

“We are exhausted. Our patience and resources are running low and we need your help,” said Rupesh Dharia, MD of Palm Beach Internal Medicine.8 “The vaccine still remains the most effective and reliable way to stop this madness,” said Leslie Diaz, MD of Jupiter Medical Center.9

NBC News reported that on July 30, 2021, 38 states had confirmed a total of 125,682 breakthrough cases. Breakthrough cases are when  vaccinated individuals contract the virus.10

COVID-19 vaccination does not guarantee against hospitalization or death. Of the breakthrough COVID-19  cases in Massachusetts, 445 cases resulted in hospitalization and 106 in death. Of the cases in Minnesota, 514 fully vaccinated people ended up going to the hospital and 57 died.Of the COVID-19 cases in Tennessee, 272 required hospitalization and 39 died.11

University of Washington Medical Center Denies Organ Transplants to Unvaccinated Patients

The University of Washington Medical Center is denying organ transplants to patients who refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The hospital has refused to publicly answer questions and will not directly acknowledge that it even has such a policy.12

A news report found that UW Medicine removed a 64-year-old patient from the heart transplant waitlist. The patient, Sam Allen of Monroe, Washington, said he was on the list for two and a half years. The hospital made the decision after they learned the patient refused to get the COVID-19, telling him they would consider adding him back to the waitlist should he satisfy their “compliance concerns.”13

Allen said that three leaky heart valves impact the blood pumping into his lungs making it difficult for him to breathe, which played a role in why he refused to wear a mask in the medical facility. After he told his cardiologist that he wouldn’t get vaccinated, he received a letter dated June 7, 2021 informing him that he was removed from the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) waiting list for a heart.14

Allen wrote a letter back to UW Medicine saying:

As a person who has spent much time and money at UWMC as a heart failure patient, I am being told I cannot get care for my condition unless I take an injection that has shown to cause cardiac problems. It seems that a wise choice would be to not make a panic move and run to get injected with the experimental gene therapy until more is known.15

Doctor Refusal to Treat Patients Conflicts with  Hippocratic Oath

Medical doctors refusing to treat patients who decline the COVID-19 vaccine raises the question of a doctor’s commitment to the Hippocratic oath and the ethical issues surrounding equal treatment. The modern version of the Hippocratic oath require doctors to all treat patients equally to the best of their ability and with compassion.16

According to Danielle Weatherby, JD, associate professor of law at the University of Arkansas, private doctors do have the right to legally refuse to treat patients in non-emergency situations for a variety of reasons, as long as the denial is not based on the person’s sex, religion or national origin. She adds:

The analysis becomes more nuanced when the patient’s refusal to vaccinate is rooted in their alleged deeply held religious beliefs.17

Other doctors believe that refusal to treat unvaccinated patients shows loss of professional and ethical standards in medicine. Aaron Kheriaty, MD, a professor of psychiatry at the University of California Irvine stated:

The logic employed here would never be applied elsewhere in medicine. Doctors try to help patients be responsible for their health; and we try to persuade them to make healthy decisions, to be sure; but we don’t abandon them when they make medical or health-related decisions that we don’t condone. Doctors treat the sick because they are sick, and simply because they are fellow human beings in need of care; we do not blame the sick for their plight.18

“A blanket condemnation of all the unvaccinated is unwarranted and unworthy of the profession of medicine,” Dr. Kheriaty said.19

Impeach Biden! He committed treason~13 Americans died~He should pay the price.

Joe Biden accused of 'looking at his watch' at ceremony ...

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

When Kabul fell, the Taliban offered the Biden administration a deal. Either the United States could control the city until August 31, the terror group’s deadline, or the Taliban would.

The Taliban may have been testing Biden, wary of a direct military confrontation with a large concentration of American forces, but if so they quickly learned that they had little to worry about. Instead of maintaining control over Kabul so that Americans could be speedily evacuated, the Biden administration and its cronies turned over the city to the Taliban.

And the Taliban turned to their most professional and deadliest assets. The Haqqani Network had been closely allied with Al Qaeda and picked up many of its tricks. Its commanders understood urban warfare, excelled at suicide and truck bombings, and had expert units whose commandos had been trained in Pakistan by the terror regime’s ISI secret agents.

The Taliban officially named Khalil al-Rahman Haqqani to head security in Kabul. The Haqqani Jihadist figure had a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States. Not long after the Biden administration made its deal with the devil, a designated foreign terrorist group and a specially designated terrorist-controlled access for American refugees fleeing to Kabul’s airport.

The Biden administration made no protest. It did not complain that a terror group founded by one of Osama bin Laden’s mentors which had repeatedly targeted American soldiers with suicide bomb attacks, including the murder of a colonel and two lieutenant colonels by a car bomber, a truck bomb that wounded 77 American soldiers in a 9/11 anniversary attack on a base, and a truck bombing attack on another base, was “coordinating security” for Kabul airport.

Biden had been given the opportunity to create a secure escape route for American civilians escaping Afghanistan and to keep American soldiers safe in the city. Instead, he set them up to be massacred by turning security in Kabul and around its airport over to a terrorist group.

Even while Biden falsely claimed at a press conference that Afghanistan would be nothing like Kabul, military and intelligence briefings had already prepared him for much worse. If someone had to take the PR hit for chasing away refugees and a botched evacuation, Biden preferred that the Taliban play the bad guys while he disavowed all responsibility. He didn’t care how many Americans died as long as he maintained plausible deniability to cover up their deaths.

Biden’s assumption that the Taliban could be trusted to do his dirty work without wanting anything in return except the end of our presence in Afghanistan was treasonously dumb.

Obama had assumed that the Muslim Brotherhood could be trusted in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya. The attacks of September 11, 2012, climaxing in the Benghazi massacre, proved him wrong. Biden’s own Benghazi began the same way when he turned over power to Islamists while believing that they would be satisfied with just taking over a country.

The Taliban had turned over the problem of Kabul airport to the Haqqani Network. Like Biden, the Taliban wanted plausible deniability for whatever might happen around the site. The Haqqani Network was part of the Taliban, yet the United States had set the unfortunate precedent of designating the Haqqanis, but not the Taliban, as a foreign terrorist organization.

That legal distinction had provided both the United States and the Taliban with plausible deniability over the years. The Haqqanis would carry out terrorist attacks while the United States could still negotiate with the Taliban without being accused of “negotiating with terrorists”.

When the Taliban turned over the checkpoints and security around Kabul airport to the Haqqani network, they were sending a clear signal that they were washing their hands of any attacks.

And the Biden administration, which had made the deal with the devil, could not hold the Taliban accountable without exposing its own complicity in this setup. The rest was all but inevitable.

The Taliban checkpoints failed to hold back the crowds from the airport even with bouts of occasional brutality. The Jihadists manning them had little interest in screening paperwork on behalf of the Kabul embassy, as Biden expected them to, instead they searched for Afghans on their lists. Once the State Department handed the Taliban its lists of approved Americans and Afghans, their real job of finding and detaining key officials and other figures became easier.

Americans continued to have trouble reaching the airport even while Biden and his cronies falsely claimed that there could be no problems with Al Qaeda’s allies running checkpoints.

Things got worse from there.

ISIS-K's leader, Shahab al-Muhajir, was a former Haqqani commander. The Islamic State affiliate had recruited heavily among the Taliban and, in particular the Haqqani Network.

Biden had put America’s worst enemies in charge of security around Kabul airport.

Gen. Frank McKenzie, who had originally met with Taliban officials to hear their offer to take Kabul, went on bragging that, "we use the Taliban as a tool to protect us as much as possible."

Who was using who became obvious when an ISIS-K suicide bomber and gunmen who had gotten past the Haqqani checkpoints murdered 13 American military personnel.

Including eleven of McKenzie’s marines.

They didn’t have to die. And the entire botched evacuation didn’t have to play out this way.

Biden made numerous mistakes that led to the fall of Afghanistan, including the abandonment of Bagram Air Base, which not only cut off a secure evacuation route but freed countless Jihadis, some of whom may have even taken part in the Kabul airport attack. But the decision to turn over Kabul to the Taliban, and to turn over security around Kabul airport to allies of Al Qaeda whom the United States had designated as terrorists is nothing short of treasonous.

13 American military personnel paid in blood for Biden’s treason.

Democrats made a point of impeaching President Trump twice. In 1787, Senator William Blount became the first politician impeached over a plot to help the British take over Florida and Louisiana. Impeachment in the Constitution begins with “treason”, continues with “bribery”, and then finally with “high Crimes and Misdemeanors“. Section 3 defines treason only as “levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

It’s hard to think of a clearer definition of aid and comfort than the massive amount of armaments that the Taliban and its Jihadists have picked up in Afghanistan.

Biden can claim that all of that was unintentional. But turning over Kabul to the Taliban at a time when thousands of Americans sheltered there was no accident. Nor was shrugging when the Taliban handed over access to Kabul airport to the Haqqani Network which is designated as a foreign terrorist organization.

These were treasonous acts whose foreseeable consequences are entirely his responsibility.

The Jihadists levied war against American military forces with the attack at Kabul airport.

Biden’s treason led to the murder of 13 American military personnel. His aid and comfort to the enemy, his adherence to the Taliban at the expense of American soldiers and civilians led to the massacre of Americans. And he can and should be impeached for his treasonous crimes.

Joe Biden’s treasonous decision to entrust American lives and security to the enemy was not committed out of any pure motive, but to protect his own political career. After decades of appeasing Islamic terrorists, Biden was only doing what came naturally to him. And he had either learned nothing from Benghazi or he simply did not care about the risk to Americans.

Like Blount and later Burr, Biden, the third ‘B’ in the bunch, committed treason out of self-interest, throwing in with America’s enemies because he thought it would profit him.

That does not lessen his treason. It worsens it.

America’s original traitors, men like Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr, were motivated by greed, pride, and wounded egos. They did not believe in anything except themselves.

Biden’s treason is that of a career politician who will sacrifice anyone for his own sake.

President Trump was impeached over Ukraine, yet the impeachers could not point to a single American who had died in that country. 13 Americans have died in Afghanistan. The parents of some of these fallen men and women have come forward to demand justice. They deserve it.

Democrats currently control the Senate and the House. But that does not excuse Republicans from the need to confront Biden and hold him accountable by calling for impeachment anyway.

Even a failed effort will keep this issue alive and prevent the dead from being forgotten.

We all saw Biden checking his watch at Dover while waiting for the transfer of the men and women he killed to be complete. The dead Americans are no more to him than the Afghans whose deaths he had falsely dismissed as having happened, “four or five days ago.”

After another four or five days, Biden hopes that the dead Americans will be forgotten.

Biden is counting on Americans to have as bad a memory as he does. And if Republicans remain silent, pivoting to the next scandal or talking point, he will have been proven right.

The Americans murdered and betrayed by Biden deserve justice. They deserve to see the question of his impeachment raised and debated. And America’s honor deserves it too.

The world must not think that what it saw in Kabul represents a new American normal.

That would be devastating to our national security and to our honor. The world must know that what happened was a crime. And that Americans will work to hold the criminal accountable.

 

Biden Blasted for Looking at Watch During Ceremony for Fallen Soldiers

Critics are blasting President Joe Biden for apparently looking at his watch Sunday during a solemn ceremony for the 13 U.S. soldiers killed during a suicide bomber attack in Afghanistan last week.

Biden and first lady Jill Biden were at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for a dignified transfer, a military ritual honoring the remains of fallen service members who died in combat, The New York Post reported Monday.

As flag-draped coffins were carried off the Air Force C-17 Globemaster plane, Biden placed his right hand to his chest.

At one point, Biden appeared to glance at his watch before putting his arms behind his back — a move criticized by veterans and conservatives.

"Looks like he was being inconvenienced by having to show some respect for these American Heros [sic]," tweeted Samuel Williams, a disabled U.S. Army veteran.

"It's true. Joe Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the servicemembers (killed) in Afghanistan at the airport. You can see him jerk his left hand to pull the watch out from under his sleeve, then look down at it," columnist Nicholas Fondacaro tweeted.

Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., said Biden's move made him remember a similar motion by former President George H. W. Bush.

"Many of us remember Pres Bush 41 checking his watch during a debate and how awful it looked (even though we all felt the same way about that debate.) But this is shocking and will be remembered," Huckabee tweeted.

Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, slammed Biden's gesture in a tweet:

"Apparently our Commander-in-Chief has better things to do than honor the 13 service members who died on his watch? I’m DISGUSTED! God bless these heroes and their loved ones. They deserved better," tweeted Jackson, a former White House physician.

Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst and former aide to ex-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, tweeted: "There is nothing more important than paying your respects to America’s fallen war heroes, Mr. President."

The 13 soldiers — 11 Marines, one Navy sailor, and one Army soldier — were killed during an ISIS-K suicide bomber attack in Kabul. They had been assisting with the evacuation of Americans and Afghans after the Taliban regained control of the country.

Teaching children that racism is built into American institutions and that white children benefit from racist systems is unacceptable.

A race-baiting high school teacher was captured blatantly teaching students the divisive, radical left doctrine broadly known as Critical Race Theory (CRT) this week at Exeter High School in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The footage, which was provided to the Exeter Examiner by the local chapter of the Moms for Liberty, captured English teacher Jordan Sharp indoctrinating teens during an online course. It is unclear if Sharp is pushing Marxist propaganda deliberately or perhaps she is simply indoctrinated herself. Either way, it is unacceptable.

“This definition [of racism] has changed, friends. Racists are not necessarily individuals who are mean, who are like, consciously disliking people across race, intending to hurt them,” she tells her students. “You could make the argument that almost all of us are racist.”

“Why?” she continues. “Because it’s individuals who support one racial group as superior to another even when it is unintentional.”

Later, she informs students that the United States government and “school system” are “inherently racist”. “Why?” she asks, “Because our whole country is built on this hierarchy, this social hierarchy, where white men are at the very top.”

Slide from Miss Jordan Sharp’s English Class

Exeter Examiner journalist Jerry Geleff also obtained the slide pictured, which shows a black woman condescendingly speaking to white people, telling them to capitalize the “B” in black in order to “recogniz[e] the cultural, and historical, and social significance of black as a category,” which appears to be a direct quote from African American studies professor at Northwestern University, Celeste Watkins-Hayes.

Considering that black people have been forced to “adapt our entire lives to fit into white spaces,” the black woman cartoon on the slide chides, “I think you can [slightly] inconvenience yourself to learn about the culture of the people who built the foundation of the country you live in today.”

Geleff further explained that the Exeter Township School District school board assured parents that Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools as part of an “approved curriculum”. Geleff quoted school board president Alison Wilson stating during a June 22nd, 2021 school board meeting:

I would say that Critical Race Theory is not taught in our school district, and if that you have evidence of otherwise, then I would encourage you to contact your building principal. It is not approved curriculum here and this school board does approve all books and curriculum.

As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, over the weekend school board members from all over Pennsylvania attended a webinar hosted by Marxist group “Our Revolution” to learn how to “rebut” parents’ concerns about Critical Race Theory.

Teacher Jordan Sharp explains that she took it upon herself to learn more about white privilege. “It’s opened my eyes to the privilege that I face in society and it is my responsibility to learn and to research.” The English teacher gives an example of privilege as a white person getting a job in which a black person also applied. By not saying anything, one is “unintentionally supporting a system where one racial group is superior to another”.

School Boards Attempt to Shut Down Criticism of Critical Race Theory in Pennsylvania

It was also reported this week that during a West Chester School District board meeting on July 26, a school board president in Pennsylvania took the microphone from an Iranian immigrant and mother of three Anita Edgarian. Edgarian was speaking out against Critical Race Theory as she saw firsthand what communism did to her home country, Iran. Police removed her from the meeting.

Watch:

Speaking out against Critical Race Theory is speaking out against Marxism.

ALERT: Communist Groups Unite With Democrats to Keep Gavin Newsom in Office

BY RENEE NAL

“RAIR has found that communist publications representing Maoist-leaning Liberation Road, Communist Party USA, Party for Socialism and Liberation & the Dem Socialists of America have joined the fight to keep the governor in power.”

Democrat groups are combining forces with communist organizations all over America to assist in efforts to stop the recall election of Governor Gavin Newsom, scheduled to take place on September 14, 2021.

RAIR Foundation USA has found that communist publications representing the Maoist-leaning Liberation Road [Organizing Upgrade], Communist Party USA [People’s World], The Party for Socialism and Liberation [Liberation] and America’s largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America [DSA North Star] have also joined the fight to keep the failed governor in power.

The left in California is pulling out all the stops, including nationwide phone-banking, personal post-card campaigns, and endorsements from celebrities and politicians. Using the hashtags #StopTheRepublicanRecall#VoteNoOnTheRecall#StandWithGavin and others, leftist groups are desperately trying to thwart the recall efforts and smear supporters of the recall election.

Importantly, the effort is getting tons of free publicity by the radical left media.

Will this Recall Election Have a Domino Effect?

The left’s biggest fear is that the successful recall of a dangerous politician such as Gavin Newsom would spark a movement of recall elections across the country. As previously observed at RAIR Foundation USA:

Why should Americans wait to recall a dangerous or inept elected official? Sometimes, those in positions of power exploit their position for personal gain or to further a subversive agenda. There is recourse for voters who can’t wait until the election in many states.

Smearing Supporters of the Recall Election

Maoist-leaning socialist organization Liberation Road has jumped in the battle to save Gavin Newsom. An article on the group’s affiliated website “Organizing Upgrade” anguishes that what “seemed like a nuisance election a few weeks ago,” is now an actual threat to their socialist agenda.

Supporters of the gubernatorial recall election are being smeared viciously, naturally. The authors of the Organizing Upgrade piece note that “[M]ass media have cast the initiators of this year’s recall as a motley crew of Q-Anons, anti-vaxxers and the like…”

Indeed, the LA Times, which has long thrown away any semblance of actual journalism, declared that “recall campaign leaders” are “allied with radical and extreme elements…” which include “groups promoting distrust of government, science and medicine; peddlers of QAnon doomsday conspiracies; ‘patriots’ readying for battle and one organization allied with the far-right extremist group, the Proud Boys.”

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders also criticized the effort, stating in part:

“Extremist Republicans have done enough to undermine democracy already. We must all unite to oppose the recall in California.”

Duane Campbell of America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) wrote an article for the DSA North Star lamenting that the recall election “is powered by a partisan, Republican coalition of national Republicans, anti-vaxxers, QAnon conspiracy theorists, anti-immigrant activists and Trump supporters.”

START A RECALL ELECTION IN YOUR STATE

Campbell, a Professor Emeritus at California State U- Sacramento, continues his nonsensical rant:

They are using the Covid economic crisis and blaming the current California governor for an endless series of problems related to the pandemic – and they are engaging and motivating the dangerous, armed white militarized organizations. This agitation grows the white supremacy movement in the state and advances Republican politics- the same people who sought to overthrow the U.S. government on Jan.6, 2020.

Expressing similar sentiment, Communist Party USA described recall supporters as including “members of neo-fascist, para-military groupings like the Proud Boys and Three Percenters – the very groups that violently took over the nation’s capital with Trump’s encouragement on January 6.”

Notice how raging communists have a message indistinguishable from Democrats or the mainstream media? As supporters of the recall election are repeatedly portrayed as “extreme,” literal communists are openly supporting Gavin Newsom.

Famous Doctor Exposes FDA Ivermectin Lies

“Sadly, anything that might possibly work against the virus is opposed by those in power…” – TheBlaze Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz

Robert W. Malone, MD, the inventor of mRNA Vaccines, slammed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for discouraging the use of ivermectin as a potential treatment or prophylaxis for the coronavirus.

A viral Tweet from the FDA condescendingly portrayed Ivermectin only as a drug for animals, and therefore unacceptable for human consumption. “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it,” read the Tweet, which linked to a completely unsourced article posted at the FDA’s website.

Dr. Malone took issue with the “childish” messaging from the FDA, stating in part that the message contradicts a current government-sponsored outpatient ivermectin clinical trial. Later, he tweeted an image of the ivermectin used for horses versus the ivermectin used for people.

“Ivermectin – one form is for horses, the other for humans. Simple stuff. Making it easy to understand. Is that sufficiently clear?,” he said.

“The FDA has not reviewed data to support the use of ivermectin in COVID-19 patients to treat or to prevent COVID-19; however, some initial research is underway,” the article at the FDA website article concedes.

The move by the FDA is only the latest to discourage promising coronavirus treatments. As Dr. Joseph Mercola has stated:

“While the list of crimes committed by authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic is a long one, perhaps the biggest crime of all is the purposeful suppression of safe and effective treatments.”

TheBlaze Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz also took issue with the FDA’s obnoxious statement. “For the assholes at the FDA claiming ivermectin, which could save millions, is only for horses, here is the readout from the Nobel Prize Assembly on ivermectin,” he said.

Horowitz also linked to an article which goes into detail about how ivermectin has been beneficial for humans, not horses. “Sadly, anything that might possibly work against the virus is opposed by those in power,” Horowitz states in part.

INVASION: Terrorists and Criminals Infiltrate Military Planes Departing from Afghanistan

BY AMY MEK

Instead of countries immediately deporting these high-risk terrorist-tied individuals, they have remained in the West while governments decide what to do with them.

Up to 100 Afghan evacuees flown out of Kabul are on intelligence agency watch lists, US official warns, as it’s revealed one passenger flown out to Qatar has potential ties to ISIS.

According to the Daily Mail,

  • The Afghans are potential candidates for Special Immigration Visas (SIV)
  • They were flagged as possible matches to intelligence agency watch lists by the Defense Department’s Automated Biometric Identification System
  • The Afghan who has potential ties to ISIS was detected by security screeners at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar after they were evacuated from Kabul Airport 
  • The Afghan evacuees are being screened against law enforcement databases using biometric data including facial recognition, iris scans and fingerprints 
  • The evacuees are being screened by agents with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol 

—————————————————

While an unknown number of citizens from Western nations are still stuck in Afghanistan, several thousand Afghan citizens have already been evacuated aboard planes landing in the West. Among the evacuated are criminals and terrorists who have already been expelled from European countries and/or are registered on anti-terrorism lists. Instead of countries immediately deporting these high-risk terrorist-tied individuals, they have remained in the West while governments decide what to do with them.

Unfortunately, due to chaos at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan, the operations of identification of the Afghans before embarking on flights to Europe have been obstructed. Dangerous Islamic terrorists capitalizing on the chaos infiltrated military planes flying to western countries. Once again, the lives of westerners who are already struggling with migrant crimes are placed at an even greater risk.

Below are several of the European countries that terror-tied Afghans have been caught infiltrating.

Germany

On Monday, August 23, the German Interior Ministry declared that some Afghans who were previously repatriated because they had committed serious crimes had returned to the country on military evacuation flights. However, a spokesman for the German Interior Ministry tried to downplay the dangerous situation by adding it was just a “low single-digit number” returning back to Germany.

France

France has unwittingly repatriated Afghan refugees close to the Taliban. A man in his thirties, who arrived in France a few days ago via a military plane, is suspected of links with the Taliban, which he does not deny. The man is just one of several recently evacuated Afghans under surveillance for their suspected links to the Taliban.

Denmark

A 23-year-old dangerous Afghan criminal arrived on a military flight from Kabul to Denmark. The man was part of the infamous Loyal to Familia gang and had been expelled from the country last year after serving a five-year sentence for possession of a firearm. The Afghan was arrested at Copenhagen airport after disembarking from one of the evacuation flights from Kabul. In court, he said he had boarded the plane “to save himself” following the capture of the Afghan capital by the Taliban.

According to the Italian news site ilprimatonazionale.it, the Loyal to Familia gang was founded in 2013 by Pakistani citizen Shuaib Khan in the suburbs of Copenhagen and is the largest gang in Denmark. According to the police, he was involved in at least 63 incidents of shootings, which resulted in the deaths of five people and many more injured.

Sweden

Two Afghan nationals who were deported after being convicted of crimes are now back in Sweden after taking an evacuation flight from Kabul.

Stockholm police have refused to release the details of the crimes that the men committed. A police spokesperson even lectured the public that she would not go into details about the men’s crime’s and they had already served their sentences to Sweden.

United Kingdom

A senior UK Home Office official revealed that five people on the no-fly list (a list of suspected terrorists) attempted to leave Afghanistan on British military flights. Four of them were detained before boarding, while one managed to be airlifted to Birmingham, UK.

The same official also stated that another person was intercepted in Frankfurt and prevented from traveling to the UK. According to British officials, there is a real risk that Islamic State militiamen will attempt to use the program to evacuate former Afghan collaborators and enter the UK. In addition, British officials at Kabul Airport warned that there had been a spike in fake IDs shown by Afghans before boarding military flights.

Italy

Italy was initially scheduled to evacuate several hundred Afghans. However, as of August 23, around 2,250 had arrived in Italy, and 1,300 others were inside the Kabul airport waiting to leave. Were the last-minute massive increases of Afghanis who were flown into Italy properly vetted?

Belgium

As reported by the Flemish newspaper Het Nieuwsblad, an email from the Belgian police revealed that the Afghan refugees arriving in Belgium would include traffickers, extremists, recruiters, and violent criminals. In addition, according to the Belgian police, “some young Afghans (who are already in the country’s reception centers) are behaving very violently. Furthermore, there are Afghan groups on Tiktok whose content incites violence. Many individuals are engaged in Islamic religious recruitment and claim to be adherents of a strict Islam. The police went on to explain that the Muslims stated goal is to bring Belgium under Islamic law.

Islamic Countries Build Walls To Protect Against the Afghans

While Islamic countries are building walls along their border to prevent a new influx of refugees, the West continues to flood their countries with unvetted and criminal Afghanis. These unvetted Islamic sharia-compliant migrants welcomed by the left have been proven to have values and ambitions in staunch opposition to Western values and laws.

As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, this is part of the United Nations (UN) and European Union’s (EU) “Great replacement” scheme. EU elites, along with the UN, are using mass migration to replace the Western population. The illegal migrants are helping the left in their fight to dilute host cultures, ensure more votes, and consolidate their power.

Taliban blocks rescue of 173 cats and dogs, allowing them to ‘bake to death in crates’

Human life means nothing to jihadis. It would follow that their barbarity towards humans, which is constantly on display, would extend to animals. Farthing “warned the pets will bake to death in their travel crates if the eight-hour stand-off does not end soon.” With no word, chances are it is already too late.

It doesn’t help that dogs are regarded as unclean in Islam:

“Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50

“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 3811

“RESCUE ARK BLOCKED Pen Farthing BLOCKED from leaving Kabul airport as Taliban reject ex-Marine’s pleas 173 cats and dogs will die in hours,” by Jerome Starkey and Alex Winter, The Sun, August 26, 2021:

TALIBAN guards have blocked a British mercy convoy from entering Kabul airport with 173 cats and dogs due to flee Afghanistan.

Former Royal Marine Pen Farthing, 57, warned the pets will bake to death in their travel crates if the eight hour stand off does not end soon.

And he’s appealed directly to the Taliban’s Doha spokesperson for help, The Sun’s reporter on the ground in Kabul says.

Ex-commando Pen founded Nowzad, an animal rescue charity, after serving in Afghanistan in 2007.

He made a midnight dash with his 25 Afghan staff and their families after Defence Secretary Ben Wallace agreed to let him land a private charter flight to fly them all to Britain.

The mission to rescue 94 dogs and 79 cats is codenamed Operation Ark.

Pen bought two trucks in the space of 24 hours and loaded them up with food and supplies to last three days – in case they were delayed inside the airport.

But they nearly didn’t make it after they were stopped at a Taliban checkpoint as they raced across the city under cover of darkness last night.

“About 15 guys jumped out and levelled their guns at us,” he said.

“Then one of them had an ND [a negligent discharge]. Luckily he was a s*** shot and it went over our heads.

“I very rarely hear Afghans swear in English but I heard a few words then.”

They were held for an hour at the checkpoint before finally being allowed to drive across the city to the airport….

On 9/11 Anniversary, Virginia to Teach How 9/11 Hurt Muslims

OUTRAGEOUS: Virginia Public Schools to Focus on Muslims—As Victims—in Teaching About 9/11 On Attacks’ 20th Anniversary

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2021/08/28/outrageous-virginia-public-schools-to-focus-on-muslims-as-victims-in-teaching-about-9-11-on-attacks-20th-anniversary-n1473740;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

On Thursday, the Virginia Department of Education published a video entitled, “Culturally Responsive and Inclusive 9/11 Commemoration,” detailing how Virginia public school teachers should handle the upcoming twentieth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 jihad terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. The emphasis on that day and thereafter must not be on the ideology of the attackers or the ongoing jihad terror threat; rather, the focus is entirely on acknowledging and eradicating what the video calls “anti-Muslim racism.”

The video is narrated by a hijab-wearing woman, Amaarah DeCuir, who describes herself as “Professorial Lecturer, School of Education, American University & Paragon Education Consulting, President.” One would think that with all her expertise, Ms. DeCuir would know the elementary fact that Islam is not a race and that there are Muslims, and Islamic jihadis, of all races. And of course, she does know that, but she is operating in this video on the basis of the Leftist contention that opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women really stems from an irrational animus against Muslims as a people, and hence is a “racialized” form of “hatred.”

Yes, it’s toxic nonsense, but that’s the Left for you. In any case, Virginia public schools that implement DeCuir’s recommendations (and since the Virginia Department of Education published her video, it would appear that the department wants that to be all of them) will give students a presentation on the twentieth anniversary of the worst attacks ever on American soil that will portray Muslims as the primary victims of those attacks, and make herculean efforts to deflect attention away from the extremely inconvenient fact that the attacks were perpetrated in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings.

If you doubt that fact, note that in March 2009, five masterminds of the 9/11 plot, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Ramzi bin As-Shibh, Walid bin ‘Attash, Mustafa Ahmed AI-Hawsawi, and ‘Ali ‘Abd Al-’Aziz ‘Ali – styling themselves as the “9/11 Shura Council” – wrote a lengthy communiqué titled “The Islamic Response to the Government’s Nine Accusations.” In it, they called the 9/11 attacks an “act of Jihad,” and explained: “The Jihad in god’s [sic] cause is a great duty in our religion.” They quoted numerous Qur’an verses, including the notorious “Verse of the Sword”: “Then fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them, and seize them, and besiege them and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush” (9:5) and another enjoining Muslims to “strike terror into the heart of the enemies of Allah” (8:60).

Attorney and columnist Marina Medvin, who broke the story of this video, notes that the 9/11 Commission Report “mentions ‘Islam’ over 1,000 times and the word ‘Muslim’ over 1,000 times,” for obvious reasons. But Virginia students will learn nothing about any of that. Instead, they’ll be taught about “phobias stemming from 9/11,” “anti-Muslim racism spikes,” and the evils of the fictional “Muslim Ban.” DeCuir offers as an example of “harmful teaching” any “teaching about Islam and/or Muslims” in connection with 9/11, except, evidently, insofar as Muslims were victims of the American response to the attacks.

All of this is designed to help teachers “disrupt anti-Muslim racism by implementing existing district anti-bullying policies.” The video offers three examples of Muslim students who claim to have faced this bullying. One says: “9/11 every single year is so awkward…the administrators would be like, ‘On this fateful day, this happened’…then the Muslim jokes would come up, like ‘don’t blow us up. Don’t do this.’ When I was younger it bothered me, but now I’m desensitized to it.”

Well, that’s a shame. Certainly, schools should do what they can to avoid bullying of all kinds. They should also remember a truth that has been lost: Children are often cruel to one another on whatever pretext they can find, and if it isn’t based on one thing, it will be on another. No Muslim students should be bullied. Making all teaching on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 about Muslims being victimized, not just personally but also politically by counter-terror measures in the U.S., however, is spectacularly wrongheaded. Students should be taught that no one is guilty of any criminal or terrorist act except those who plotted and perpetrated it. At the same time, students should be taught about the ideological wellsprings of the 9/11 attacks, just as they should be taught about the ideological wellsprings of Pearl Harbor and the Nazi invasion of Poland: so as to work toward ensuring that such acts of violence and hatred are never repeated.

To pretend that 9/11 didn’t spring from beliefs and assumptions that can be found in Islamic teaching is simply to deny reality, and denying reality never ends well. This doesn’t remotely mean that all Muslims are terrorists or that any innocent Muslim should be victimized. But Leftists frequently claim that enunciating truths they don’t wish to acknowledge will result in the victimization of innocent people; they never seem to notice this possibility when it comes to their own poisonous race-baiting and classist rhetoric.

On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was attacked by Islamic jihadis acting in the name of Islam and in the service of its 1,400-year cause. To claim anything else is to outrage the truth, history, and those who have given their lives to defend our beleaguered republic since then, including the 13 service members killed in Kabul on the same day the Virginia Department of Education posted this video.

 

Dan Crenshaw, Lara Logan Bring the Most Disturbing Reports Out of the Kabul Airport Yet

BY BRYAN PRESTON

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw is a retired Navy SEAL who served and was wounded in Afghanistan’s Helmand province during his third deployment, in 2012. He lost his right eye and his left eye was badly damaged in an IED attack. Crenshaw is held in extremely high regard in the veteran and active-duty communities.

Lara Logan is a long-time award-winning journalist now working for Fox News who has spent much of her career covering war zones including Iraq and Afghanistan. Between the two of them, Logan and Crenshaw have spent years in and around Afghanistan. Due to their experience there, both are likely to have credible sources on the ground at the Kabul airport.

Both Logan and Crenshaw are independently reporting that Americans have been turned away from safety at that airport over the past couple of days.

Logan posted this tweet Saturday afternoon.

The “82nd soldiers” refers to the 82nd Airborne, which Joe Biden ordered into Kabul to defend the airport and facilitate the mass evacuation as the situation collapsed. Logan added in a subsequent tweet that “All that stands between these Americans & safety/home is the US govt & military.”

Sunday morning, Rep. Crenshaw posted this on Twitter and Facebook.

Tweet by Rep. Dan Crenshaw, Aug. 29, 2021.

The fog of war is undoubtedly thick in Taliban-controlled Kabul. American forces there are under an effective siege, surrounded by Taliban and other terrorist forces numbering in the thousands. The United States military is now depending on the Taliban, a bloodthirsty army of Islamic extremists who have been our battlefield enemy for 20 years, for security. One Green Beret soldier returned from Kabul this week and told Fox that the Taliban and ISIS-K, which the Biden administration is blaming for Thursday’s bombing that killed 13 Americans, are one and the same. The Taliban, he said, have been seen scouting Americans to target them inside the Kabul airport. The Biden administration has been putting a much less menacing face on the Taliban since it took Kabul two weeks ago.

If there is anything to Logan’s and Crenshaw’s posts, the situation in Kabul is far worse and more disturbing than any American could have imagined over the past 24 to 48 hours. Some reports indicate that as many as 350 Americans remain stranded in Kabul. The true number could be far higher. The Biden administration has consistently touted its success in removing thousands of people from Kabul while downplaying the number of Americans who are among the rescued.

So many questions arise from the possibility that Americans are being turned back from the gates at Kabul airport, but the Democrat-controlled Congress was gaveled out of session and is not in Washington to convene any hearings.

Update: Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) says the State Department is not helping.

The State Department, headed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, is in charge of the evacuation effort. The Pentagon is subordinate to State in Kabul and if soldiers are turning Americans away at the airport, it would be under State’s orders.

Vetting the Unvettable

As America is faced with the total collapse of Afghanistan and the U.S. government’s malfeasance in responding to it, the question of Afghan refugees coming to America is a real security issue for state and local governments as well as citizens across the nation.

2 questions:

  1. How can American citizens trust the government with properly vetting people from any nation when the U.S. government has a track record of abject failure specific to this task?
  2. How do you vet people who cannot be positively identified by true name and date of birth?

The U.S. Government’s Track Record in “Vetting”

Abdurahman Alamoudi was an Al Qaeda financier who, in 2004, was sentenced to 21 years in federal prison. Yet, Alamoudi served as the Islamic advisor to President Clinton and as a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. State Department, worked with the Department of Education, and created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Alamoudi was an immigrant from Eritrea and was given the green light by the State Department, the Secret Service, and the FBI.

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

Between 2003 and 2014 Gulmurod Khalimov participated in 5 U.S. State Department-sponsored training programs, including weapons and tactics training. Why is this a problem? Khalimov was a senior ISIS commander upon whom the U.S. government put a $3 million bounty.

The State Department defended themselves by explaining, “All appropriate Leahy vetting was undertaken in advance of this training.”

Perhaps the vetting process is broken.

How Well Will the U.S. government Vet Refugees from Afghanistan?

Those who served honorably with U.S. troops and/or as a part of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan who renounce sharia and adopt American principles for their lives should be given an opportunity to come to America.

Direct testimony is needed by those who served with the individual “refugees” because people from Afghanistan are rarely capable of passing a true background check. This is because there is often no way to confirm the individual's true name or simple identifiers like a date of birth.

For security reasons, the question of how the United States will vet people from certain countries must be answered before admitting anyone from those countries.

This is the reason that in 2016 Understanding the Threat recommended Mr. Trump suspend all immigration into the United States for 3-5 years until the U.S. could produce a viable vetting process for immigrants from many of the nations openly hostile to the U.S., limit the points of entry to one per coast, and standardize security, health, and skills screening.

State Level Vetting

If the federal government demonstrates – as it has – it is incapable of vetting people coming into America, refugees or otherwise, how will states vet them?

Russell Smith, the CEO of Refugee Services of Texas issued a press release on August 16, 2021, stating Texas is prepared to receive hundreds of refugees from Afghanistan.

The press release also states: “All Afghans who have applied for Special Immigrant Visas (SIV’s) will undergo security background checks and health screenings.”

How will Texas vet these people? UTT reached out to Mr. Smith, but as of the time of publishing this article, we have not received any feedback.

If the United States federal government is not capable of creating a vetting process to keep Al Qaeda and ISIS leaders out of America, how well do you think they are doing vetting refugees from Afghanistan?

Taliban cuts gay man into pieces to ‘show what they do with gay people’

The Taliban has already sent clear messages on what it intends to do with uncovered women, and now it has sent another message on how it will treat gay men.

The penalty for homosexuality in Islam is death, so the Taliban is following Sharia, which is also implemented in several other Islamic countries. Under Islamic law:

“When a man mounts another man, the throne of God shakes,” and “Kill the one that is doing it and also kill the one that it is being done to.” (Abu Dawud 4462 and al-Tirmidhi 1456)

“If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.” (Abu Dawud 4448)

“The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, ‘Turn them out of your houses .’ The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and ‘Umar turned out such-and-such woman.” (Sahih Bukhari 72:774)

“Taliban cut Afghan man’s body into pieces to ‘show what they do with gay people,’” by Lily Wakefield, Pink News, August 25, 2021:

A gay man in Afghanistan has described how the Taliban killed his boyfriend and “cut his body into pieces” to “show what they do with gay people”.

The 26-year-old, going by the pseudonym of “Gabir” to protect his identity, told the i that he and his boyfriend were sitting in a restaurant together in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, when the city was seized by the Taliban on 15 August.

They both rushed back to their respective homes, and soon Gabir was unable to get hold of his partner as his phone signal and internet connection began to fail.

He said: “At 5 or 6 o’clock, my brother told me something has happened, that ‘you should contact your friends’. When I call my friends, everyone’s phone is off.”

Tragically, Gabir finally discovered from a friend that his boyfriend, who was just 24 years old, had been tracked down by the Taliban and killed.

“Two cars came, with Taliban in it,” he said.

“They said, ‘Where is his home?’ and beat him so much. They took him away – nobody knows where – and then they kill him.

“Afterwards they said they brought the body [back] and cut his body into pieces to show the people that this is what we do with gay people.”

Gabir and his boyfriend had been together for eight months after meeting at university, and had been planning to leave Afghanistan to get married.

Following the young man’s horrific death, Gabir hasn’t even had time to grieve, as he is in hiding and fearing for his own life.

He recently received an anonymous call from someone who told him: “I know you are gay, before capturing Kabul we knew everything about you, you have three or four friends who are gay, you have a boyfriend.

“Once we settle here in Kabul we will not let you live. If we find you, we will kill you.”

Since then, Gabir has been on the run, but he said: “I’m 100 per cent sure I’m going to die. There is no hope for me.”…

Gay Afghan author Nemat Sadat recently told PinkNews that the Taliban will “weed out and exterminate” Afghanistan’s LGBT+ community: “They can either await a slow death or a quick one.”….

Japan discovers “magnetic” substance in Pfizer covid vaccines; journalists start DYING from the vax they pushed

BY MIKE ADAMS

(Natural News) We have turned the corner on the vaccine debate. The Pfizer vaccine is rapidly failing, and now most infections, hospitalizations, and deaths are occurring among the “fully vaccinated.” Journalists who promoted vaccines are literally dying from those same vaccines, and a bombshell new study reveals that natural immunity offers approximately 13 times better protection against the “Delta” variant than vaccine-induced immunity.

Japan, meanwhile, has discovered a contaminant affecting millions of doses across hundreds of vaccine injection sites there, and a health ministry official describes the contaminant as “magnetic” and “possibly metal.” This means people are, in fact, being injected with substances that respond to magnets, which obviously explains why covid vaccines are allowing magnets to stick to peoples’ bodies.

From The Epoch Times:

Japan announced on Aug. 26 that it’s suspending the use of about 1.63 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine due to reports of contamination.

“It’s a substance that reacts to magnets … it could be metal,” a ministry official reportedly said, according to Nikkei Asia.

Nikkei Asia further reports:

Takeda Pharmaceutical handles distribution of the U.S.-developed Moderna vaccine in Japan.

Nasdaq-listed Moderna confirmed receiving “several complaints of particulate matter” in vaccine vials distributed in Japan but said it had found “no safety or efficacy issues” related to these reports.

You read that correctly. There’s some sort of magnetic, possibly metallic contamination in the vaccines, but the vaccine manufacturer claims there are “no safety or efficacy issues.”

What else are they going to say? That the vaccines are dosed up with graphene oxide which responds to magnets and external electromagnetic fields? That would give away the whole agenda if such a truth were acknowledged.

The message to Japanese health officials is clear: Stop looking at the vials! Just inject your people and do as you’re told!

BBC journalist List Shaw confirmed to have been killed by vaccine-induced clotting in the brain

We always knew that journalists who have been pimping for the vaccine industry would begin to be killed by those very same vaccines. It makes you wonder how anyone can even call themselves a “journalist” if they aren’t willing to ask questions of the vaccine establishment. By definition, you’re not really a journalist if you express blind faith in the very institutions you’re supposed to be keeping in check. Then again, today’s “news” industry has nothing to do with journalism. They’re mostly just the propaganda arm of Big Pharma and the CIA.

In the UK, BBC journalist Lisa Shaw is now confirmed to have been killed by blood clots caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine, confirms The Guardian (UK):

An award-winning BBC radio presenter died as a result of complications from the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, a coroner has concluded.

Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Radio Newcastle, died at the city’s Royal Victoria Infirmary in May, a little more than three weeks after her first dose of the vaccine developed by academics at the University of Oxford.

The inquest heard that Shaw, 44, had been admitted to hospital after doctors investigating her complaints of headaches found she had suffered a brain hemorrhage.

The reason people suffer headaches after taking these “clot shots” is because blood clots block the brain blood vessels that normally supply blood to the brain. Since the heart is still pumping, pressure builds up behind the blood clot. In some people, this results in a “blowout” of the blood vessel or a “blood-brain bleed” / brain hemorrhage. As The Guardian reports, “She was transferred to the Royal Victoria Infirmary where she received a number of treatments, including cutting away part of her skull to relieve the pressure on her brain, but despite those efforts, she died on 21 May.”

I’m quite certain that “cutting away part of your skull” was never mentioned to Shaw as a possible side effect of taking the vaccine. How many vaccine recipients have undergone emergency brain surgery around the world? These reports are shockingly common, and it’s obvious why: The “clot shot” causes blood clots that block the blood supply to the brain, heart, skin, and other organs. This is also why covid vaccine shots are causing skin to die and rot off the faces and bodies of some people. This condition, also known as “whole-body skin peeling,” is often misdiagnosed as a burn, so many of the vaccine victims whose skin is “rotting” off are never recorded as vaccine injuries.

Journalists who are nearly killed by vaccines keep promoting them… because they’re victims of Stockholm Syndrome

Some journalists who are not yet dead but injured by the vaccine somehow remain wholly brainwashed to keep pushing the vax propaganda. Yahoo Australia reports on a pro-vaccine journalist who obviously was almost killed by the vaccine, yet still somehow believes doctors when they tell him they hope his intense pain will fade away on its own. From that story:

“Nearing the end of the second week my heart started to race, I was getting pins and needles in the arms, extreme fatigue and a very strange sensation of dizziness,” he wrote.

“I took Nurofen, and I kept working.”

By the end of the third week after his vaccination though, Mr. Hitchcock said he had gotten “steadily worse”.

“Sharp chest pain — cold shivers and chills — and the dizziness were intense,” he said.

“25 days after the shot and probably a little late to hospital — but here I am — diagnosed with pericarditis — or inflammation of the heart due to the Pfizer vaccine.”

… it’s going to take some time getting used to the constant pain – which they hope will eventually go away.

What’s interesting in all this is how there even appears to be self-censorship by this journalist, who appears to be a victim of Stockholm Syndrome where he remains loyal to the very people who are trying to kill him. That last sentence, “it’s going to take some time getting used to the constant pain – which they hope will eventually go away,” appears to have been removed from his Instagram post. Perhaps he was threatened with being fired if he admitted the vaccine is causing “constant pain.”

Over the next year, we’re going to see a WAVE OF DEATHS among journalists, doctors, and pharmacists who all pushed the vaccine with deliberate lies

What’s worth noting in all this is that vaccine deaths and injuries among journalists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, bureaucrats, and others who pushed vaccines are going to skyrocket over the next few months. With fully-vaccinated people now 13 times more likely to be injured, hospitalized, or killed by the “Delta” variant compared to those with natural immunity, it’s not difficult to do the math on all this: The coming wave of deaths will be among the vaccinated themselves, many of whom were also propagandists for the vaccine industry (Karma sure is a bitch.)

This doesn’t even consider the Antibody-Dependent Enhancement effect that many health experts predict will kick in during the coming winter flu season. If that phenomenon takes hold, we could see literally millions of post-vaccine deaths over the next 1-3 years, most likely taking place during traditional flu seasons.

A lot of mainstream journalists, you see — both conservative and leftist — are not merely unethical enough to push poisons onto other people; they’re also stupid enough to take those poisons themselves (while the informed globalists are taking saline injections because they’re not fools). The result is simple cause and effect: If you inject yourself with a toxic biological weapon that causes systemic blood clotting, you should not be surprised to discover that your body is filled with blood clots. Nor should you be surprised to plummet to the ground if you step off a tall building, since media propaganda — no matter how intense — still can’t change the laws of physics (or biochemistry).

Those who push the poison will die by the poison.

For those propagandists who pushed vaccines and ended up killing themselves, their lies won’t be missed, and they are instantly replaceable anyway since they mostly just read teleprompter scripts authored by the CIA and Big Pharma lobbyists. It’s not just that they’re dead, it’s that their entire lives were dedicated to harming others and making sure no one had access to the truth about vaccines, nutrition, vitamin D, Ivermectin, and so on.

Criminal Negligence: CENTCOM Commander General Kenneth Frank McKenzie Jr. (USMC) is responsible for the deaths of men America entrusted to his care

BY JOHN D. GUANDOLO, EX-FBI AGENT

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/08/criminal-negligence;

Like the generals who came before him, CENTCOM Commander General Kenneth Frank McKenzie Jr. (USMC) is responsible for the deaths of men America entrusted to his care because he made an affirmative decision not to know and understand his enemy.

His decision not to do basic due diligence to KNOW THE ENEMY is unprofessional. When people die because of a person’s unprofessional conduct, the law calls that “Criminal Negligence.”

We put doctors and lawyers in jail for that.

Today, 10 Marines, 2 U.S. Army soldiers, and 1 Navy corpsman are among the 73 dead in a martyrdom attack by jihadis in Kabul, Afghanistan.

General McKenzie, like most people in the U.S. national security apparatus, made an affirmative decision to never read/understand any Islamic law/sharia despite the fact 100% of the people killing Americans across the globe tell us they are “Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Allah” to establish a “caliphate under Allah’s divine law/sharia.”

 

TOGETHER WITH THE UK, Biden Will Fund Taliban Through ‘Humanitarian Aid’

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/08/biden-will-fund-taliban-through-humanitarian-aid;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

On August 17, I asked, “How Long Until Biden Starts Funding the Taliban?”

Read between the lines and you understand that we’re going to be enabling the funding of terrorism. As Churchill once said, “it’s just a matter of the price.”

But we’ll be deep in it before long via the “humanitarian aid” channels.

Despite all the assurances, the money will end up in the hands of the Taliban and help shore up their rule.

Understand that this is not a question of ‘if’ this will happen, but when.

Aid groups will function under the Taliban, they will pay protection money to them (while swearing up and down on a stack of Das Kapitals that they’re not) and we’ll end up funding them.

On August 20, I elaborated how this would work.

Maintaining a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan will lead to a flow of foreign aid to the Taliban.

Western nations, faced with the threat of millions of migrants showing up on their doorsteps, will be happy, after a few initial protests, to pay off the Taliban, overtly or covertly, to slow the flood. While the aid organizations swear up and down that none of the money is going to the Taliban, it is impossible to operate in a terror state without paying protection money to the terrorists.

Doing any kind of business in Afghanistan will mean doing business with the Taliban.

The Biden administration isn’t waiting anywhere near that long. It’s official, “humanitarian aid” will keep flowing to the Taliban.

The United States is taking steps to allow humanitarian work to continue in Afghanistan despite U.S. sanctions on the Taliban, which seized power 11 days ago.

A U.S. Treasury Department official said President Joe Biden’s administration has contacted humanitarian partners in Afghanistan in recent days about their continued ability to provide aid.

“We are taking steps to allow for humanitarian aid to continue in a way that benefits the Afghan people,” the official said, adding that Biden discussed the humanitarian assistance with fellow G7 leaders.

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Thursday that all countries must ensure that any sanctions or counterterrorism measures comply with international humanitarian and rights law, and do not impede the impartial humanitarian activities.

The Taliban have said they will respect human rights and will not allow terrorists to operate from the country. The group has also encouraged aid organizations to continue their work, saying aid was welcome as long as it was not used as a means of political influence over Afghanistan.

Aid is also a means of putting money in the pockets of the Taliban.

Aid groups operating in areas controlled by terrorists pay them protection money, provide them with supplies for their fighters and supporters, or do business with them in various ways.

We know that the Taliban were already doing it.

The Taliban in Afghanistan are becoming what one think-tank calls a “government in waiting,” taxing individuals in the provinces and extending a kind of regulatory jurisdiction over medical clinics and other public institutions.

Now they are attempting to tax and control the activities of NGOs, including international aid agencies…

This past spring, Taliban representatives, not just in Kandahar but also around the country, began asking demining and other NGOs to register with their own NGO commission, and to share the details of the finances of their projects…

In November, the UN’s Office for Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in its weekly report that, “There is increasing evidence that in different parts of the country demands by NSAGs (non-state armed groups) for illegal taxation from humanitarian agencies are becoming more formalized. Such demands violate humanitarian principles and cause delays in responding to life-saving needs of the affected people.”

Affected NGOs did not want to speak on the record for fear of Taliban retaliation against their workers, but they paint a picture of the Taliban increasing their influence over health clinics and schools as well as attempting to “tax” NGOs.

The extent of Taliban taxation and monitoring of NGOs varies, says one worker. Their own organization isn’t hassled that much because one of their managers has longstanding ties with the Taliban leadership, the worker said. Other NGOs have reportedly purchased equipment for Taliban medical clinics, or hired workers suggested by the Taliban.

Some NGOs say they are struggling to come up with a strategy for working in Taliban-controlled areas. Most government funding comes with rules that should prevent money from going to the Taliban or other anti-government groups.

That’s not a problem though because the Taliban, like other Jihadist groups, including Hamas, have sophisticated strategies for milking NGOs.

You can track if payments are going directly to the Taliban, but tracking the vendors that provide medical equipment and then make payoffs to the Taliban, or how many of the workers are actually Taliban people, is a mostly hopeless task.

And now that the Taliban are in charge, that kind of tracking won’t happen.

Even though the media reported on this two years ago, it will suppress any such concerns now, and insist vocally that the need to stop famine and disease in Afghanistan is far more urgent than preventing the Taliban from taxing aid groups.

And the Biden administration will fund the Taliban.
