Afghanistan Continues to Destabilize as Massive Terror Attack Kills Dozens

Is this Biden’s legacy?

Published

The decisions made by the Biden administration on the subject of Afghanistan could very well go down in history with the same sort of disappointment that we hold for the Vietnam War.

Our time in Afghanistan was the longest sustained military effort that our country has ever called a “war”.  We arrived shortly after September 11th, 2001, hot on the heels of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, and we stayed for two decades, hoping to train Afghan fighting forces to be able to hold on to their nation if we ever left.

Then President Biden sped that withdrawal up, and the whole country fell to the Taliban in eleven days.  This very well could be the worst military investment in the history of our nation.

And now, despite the massive amount of effort that Biden has put into spinning the Taliban takeover as acceptable, terrorism is now a way of life for the people of Afghanistan.

A suicide bomb explosion ripped through a Shiite mosque in northern Afghanistan’s Kunduz province, killing and wounding dozens of worshippers, according to a local official.

Afghanistan’s TOLO news agency quotes the director of information and culture of Kunduz as saying that at least 43 people are dead and more than 140 hurt in the suicide attack.

Dost Mohammad Obaida, a police official in the province, confirmed that “more than 100” were dead or wounded, according to The Associated Press.

“I assure our Shiite brothers that the Taliban are prepared to ensure their safety,” Obaida said, adding that an investigation was underway.

And the world has certainly taken notice.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan later tweeted that it was “deeply concerned” about the reports.

“Today’s incident is part of a disturbing pattern of violence: 3rd deadly attack this week apparently targeting a religious institution,” UNAMA said.

It was shortly after the Afghanistan chaos began that President Biden’s approval numbers began to slip, and the Commander in Chief is currently suffering with far below the halfway mark in that metric.

Biden Busted! POTUS Blows Off DC Mask Mandate at High End Restaurant

Not a good look for the guy who keep pushing the mandates.

Published

Throughout American history, (and certainly throughout this infernal coronavirus pandemic), there has been a great deal of talk about our elected officials and just how little they seem to care for the rules that they themselves profess to find important.

In many cases over the last year, we have witnessed Democratic politicians flouting the rules surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, often accompanied by the old anecdote about “rules for thee, but not for me”.  This ethos was exemplified by Nancy Pelosi, of course, who was seen on CCTV having her hair done inside of a California salon despite local ordinances prohibiting any customers to be inside the building at all.

Now, in a similarly-hypocritical situation, President Joe Biden has been spotted ignoring the DC mask mandate while dining at an ultra-posh restaurant in Georgetown.

White House Press Secretary Jan Psaki didn’t have much of a response when questioned about the poor behavior. 

During her daily press briefing, Psaki was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy to address a video showing Biden and first lady Jill Biden walking through a high-end Georgetown restaurant without masks on Saturday, violating Washington, D.C.’s indoor mask mandate.

“There is a mask requirement inside D.C. restaurants,” Doocy said, “yet President Biden and the first lady were not wearing masks while walking around a D.C. restaurant on Saturday. Why?”

Psaki responded by incorrectly claiming the controversy centered around a photo, not a video, and she said the Bidens were walking out of the restaurant, not through it.

Then came a tense exchange.

“Well, I think what we are referring to is a photo of them walking out of a restaurant after they had eaten, masks in hand, where they had not had put them back on yet,” Psaki said.

“So I would say, of course, there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should,” she continued. “But I don’t think we should lose the forest through the trees here in that our objective here is to get more people vaccinated, make sure that that schools and companies around the country can put in place requirements to save more lives and keep people safer and not overly focus on moments in time that don’t reflect overarching policy.”

Doocy pushed back, saying the Bidens were clearly filmed walking through the restaurant, indoors, without masks on, but Psaki refused to elaborate.

“There is a caveat for people under 2 or people who are actively eating or drinking,” Doocy said. “So I’m just curious why the president was doing this.”

“I think I just addressed it, Peter,” Psaki responded.

Biden has been adamant about both mask and vaccine mandates of late, and has faced a great deal of pushback on account of his incessant promotion of such guidelines.

Trump Boasts He Wouldn’t Need Mandates to Convince Americans to Get Vaccine

BOOM!

Published

on

One of the most heated arguments that we have in America today has to do with whether to not the federal government has any right to tell us what to put into our bodies.

Sure, they already seem to have some ideas on this, having decided when we are old enough to drink alcohol or smoke a cigarette while also completely inhibiting our ability to partake in other, more dangerous fare.

But when it comes to medical decisions, there are a great many Americans who’ve decided that this is a line too far, specifically in the case of COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Former President Donald Trump, who appears very much to be pro-vaccine, still isn’t pro-mandate, and he has a good reason why.

“I wouldn’t say to anybody, ‘You have to.’ But I would sell it. Look, I’m very proud of what we did with the vaccines,” Trump told political news host Bill O’Reilly in an interview that will air at 8 p.m. Monday on The First TV.

“It was supposed to take five years and they said it wasn’t going to work. I did three vaccines in less than nine months and they do work, they work really well.”

And then:

Trump added: “I would convince people, take it. I don’t want to push it … When I was president, there was no talk about mandates or anything. Everybody wanted the vaccine. Now a lot of people don’t want it.”

President Joe Biden has taken a far more terse and tyrannical tone in regard to involution mandates, suggesting at one point that “Our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”
