VIDEO: Generals’ Testimony: Biden Lied To America About Afghanistan

Two generals testified that Biden lied to America and said they recommended to Biden that he leave a residual force of 2,500 in Afghanistan.

Generals Austin, Milley, and McKensie testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday. Milley and McKensie’s testimony could be summed up with the phrase Biden lied, Americans were left behind and died. Each of the Generals said they recommended leaving behind a residual military force. As Secretary of Defense and part of the Administration, General Austin was not as forthcoming. Generals testified Biden lied.

The US military withdrawal allowed the Taliban to simply conquer the nation in eleven days and then hand the US a figurative eviction notice that would force all of our military assets to be gone by August 31st.

Despite our vast military capabilities, it was well understood that it would be impossible to get every American out of Afghanistan in that time period and if the remaining 2,500 troops were pulled out the Taliban would take over. The nation’s top strategic minds explicitly told that to President Biden. That’s what was testified to Tuesday in a Senate hearing room.

[Secretary of Defense] Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, and head of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday for a public hearing on the Biden administration’s chaotic military withdrawal from Afghanistan.

McKenzie and Milley both testified that they recommended maintaining a presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

“I won’t share my personal recommendation to the president, but I will give you my honest opinion and my honest opinion and view shaped my recommendation,” McKenzie testified. “And I recommended that we maintain 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.”

And he wasn’t the only one:

Milley was also pressed on the matter, saying that while he would not share his “personal” recommendations made to the president, his assessment was, “back in the fall of 2020, and remained consistent throughout, that we should keep a steady state of 2,500 and it could bounce up to 3,500, maybe, something like that, in order to move toward a negotiated solution.”

But is contrary to what America heard from the White House:

Biden and his White House team have repeatedly said that no military leaders advised him to leave a small military presence behind. In August, Biden told ABC News’ in-house Democratic Party operative George Stephanopoulos that “no one” recommended a 2,500 troop presence that he could “recall.”

On Tuesday, we learned that either his dementia is damaging his memory or that he was lying.

Austin was asked whether the president received the personal recommendations from his top military advisers like Milley and McKenzie.

“Their input was received by the president and considered by the president for sure,” Austin testified.

The White House attempted to deflect from the testimony by issuing a tweet regarding the issue, stating that their belief that any remaining troops would have escalated the trouble in Kabul. And for those who believe that WH tweet, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.

Senator Hawley (R-MO) justifiably slammed the Generals for leaving American civilians behind in Afghanistan.

So Biden lied about what the military told him, ignored their advice, and that he left Americans behind. What does the White House say that we should believe?

Neither Biden nor the leaders of our military, per Senator Blackburn:

Senator Hawley closed the hearings by telling General Milley and Secretary Austin that they should resign.

“I think this mission was a catastrophe. I think there’s no other way to say it. There has to be accountability,” he said.

Sadly accountability is as likely to happen as the Biden Administration telling the truth.

Southwest Caves to Pressure from Anti-Vaccine Employees

But there’s one heck of a catch.

Published

on

Last weekend was an unfortunate one for Southwest Airlines, who suffered from the cancelation of nearly a third of their flight schedule…and just days after they announced that a vaccine mandate would soon go into effect for their thousands of employees.

The airlines denied that the vaccine mandate had anything to do with the cancelations, blaming weather and air traffic control issues.  But, when researchers compared the number of total flights cancelled to the number of Southwest flights cancelled, it was fairly obvious that this was a localized issue.

Only a few days after that, a massive protest of their vaccine mandate hit home near headquarters.

By Tuesday of this week, the airline had been forced to back down.

Southwest Airlines dropped a plan to put unvaccinated workers with pending exemptions on unpaid leave after a December 8 deadline following protests by their employees.

“The employee will continue to work, while following all COVID mask and distancing guidelines applicable to their position, until the accommodation has been processed,” according to an internal note obtained by CNBC written by Southwest’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Hospitality Steve Goldberg and Vice President and Chief People Officer Julie Weber.

And then, even after a new deadline was set, the company doesn’t appear to be baring its teeth in regard to enforcement.

The company is giving employees until November 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for a medical or religious exemptions. While these exemptions are pending, employees will continue being paid, and those who are rejected will continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation),” CNBC reported.

It was unclear exactly where the buck would ultimately stop with the new timeline, but there is little doubt that we’ll soon find out.

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

Published

on

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.
