Biden’s Afghanistan Plan Unravels, with Terrifying New Warnings Issued

The situation is turning desperate.

Published

on

Much of the nation knew that this was coming, thanks in so small part to the glut of military leaders who looked to warn us.

Joe Biden’s advancing of the troop withdrawal timeline in Afghanistan is turning out to be an unmitigated disaster, and it doesn’t appear as though there is anything that can be done to hedge that bet.

First and foremost, there is the news that the ever-awful Taliban could soon take the entire country over.

Afghanistan’s capital city and the seat of its government, Kabul, could come under pressure from the Taliban in as little as 30 days and fall to the extremist group within 90 days, a U.S. official told CBS News’ David Martin.

The Taliban now controls 65 percent of Afghanistan, according to European officials. A number of major provincial capitals have fallen to the group over the past week.

But despite the group’s rapid gains — which have shocked the Afghan government and its allies — U.S. President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he did not regret his decision to withdraw American troops.

As they progress, disturbing reports have surfaced, suggesting that the Taliban is simply executing surrendered soldiers – as if we needed another reason to find them despicable on every level.

Now, a dire warning has emerged from the US Embassy.

The US Embassy in Kabul again urged American citizens to leave Afghanistan “immediately” amid rapid Taliban gains in the country.

It is the second such security alert in less than a week urging the immediate departure of US citizens.

“The U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens to leave Afghanistan immediately using available commercial flight options,” the embassy said Thursday, noting that Americans who cannot afford to purchase airline tickets should contact the embassy “for information regarding a repatriation loan.”

The embassy issued its alert as the Taliban continued its assault, seizing major cities and capitols, dealing blow after blow to the Afghan government, its army and the US and its allies who trained Afghan forces.

The news will be yet another blow to the Biden administration, who’ve yet to provide the nation with any real wins since coming into power.

Donald Trump Drops Major 2024 Hint While on the Golf Course

It may not be official yet, but was there ever really any doubt?

Published

on

Will he or won’t he?  And if so, when will he?

These are the sorts of questions that have haunted the GOP, and the nation at large, for some time, specifically in regard to the possibility of Donald Trump once again joining the 2024 political fray as a Republican presidential candidate, (and presumptive nominee).

Trump has largely played coy thus far, likely due to the coming 2022 midterms and the fact that the GOP looks poised to take back the House and Senate in that contest.  Should Trump jump too early, it would give Democrats a rather obtuse target to attack ahead of the election.

But that’s not to say that he’s not dropping hints at just about every turn…even on the golf course.

Donald Trump has confidently declared himself the “45th and 47th” US president.

The former president made the remarks while playing a round of golf at one of his clubs, according to a video being shared widely on social media on Wednesday.

As Trump was filmed walking to the first tee, one of his playing partners could be heard saying: “Now on the tee, the 45th president of the United States.”

“The 45th and 47th,” a grinning Trump quickly fired back.

He received immediate affirmative reactions.

His playing partners cheered his response, with one of them saying: “Yes, I love that.”

YouTube Jumps the Shark, Bans Fox News Host’s Personal Channel

YouTube somehow thinks that it has arbitrary authority over content and content creators that cable TV deems appropriate.

Published

What arrogance YouTube must have.  What absolute cojones.

The internet’s premiere video streaming site, which began life as a place for cat videos and other such nonsense, now believes themselves to be the arbiters of all that is fit for consumption, eschewing the standards and practices of the FCC-regulated world for rules all their own.

They’ve now even taken to suggesting that what’s allowed to be broadcast on television is no longer suitable for their audience, and for no reason other than the company’s political slant.

YouTube banned Fox News host Dan Bongino, forever deplatforming one of the internet’s most popular conservative commentators.

The popular video service run by Google said Bongino tried to circumvent a one-week ban for spreading COVID-19 misinformation on one channel by posting on another channel, resulting in a permanent suspension.

“We terminated Dan Bongino’s channels for circumventing our Terms of Service by posting a video while there was an active strike and suspension associated with the account,” YouTube said in a statement to USA TODAY. “When a channel receives a strike, it is against our Terms of Service to post content or use another channel to circumvent the suspension.”

Bongino, whose rhetoric appears to still pass muster in the established world of cable media, has once again proven that Silicon Valley isn’t interested in what’s right so much as it is interested in how far left they can skew the overall balance of the American media picture.
