The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent. That deterrent is now gone. The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power. What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul. This is complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategy coherence.”President Donald Trump

Quote II

‘The victims are understandably distressed by this unacceptable behaviour.’Surrey Police spokesperson

Quote III

“Any political settlement that the Afghans pursue to avert bloodshed must include having women at the table. The fate of women and girls in Afghanistan is critical to the future of Afghanistan. As we strive to assist women, we must recognize that their voices are important, and all must listen to them for solutions, respectful of their culture. There is bipartisan support to assist the women and girls of Afghanistan,” Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

Quote IV

“There is always a tendency to use the model you know, which is your own model. When you build an army like that, and it’s meant to be a partner with a sophisticated force like the Americans, you can’t pull the Americans out all of a sudden, because then they lose the day-to-day assistance that they need.” retired Lt. Gen. Daniel Bolger

Quote V

Fire all the generals. Invite a few back, maybe a dozen. Clean out the Pentagon. Can all the “Diversity Consultants,” “Equal Opportunity Officers,” “Climate Change Mitigation Specialists,” and every other strap-hanging oxygen thief who doesn’t contribute to the only thing the military should be focusing on right now – putting Chi Coms in graves.Kurt Schlichter

The Comment of The Week

Remember Valerie Plame and her "outing"? Well the current resident of the White House says, "Hold my beer".

‘You panicking amateur idiots’: Did the White House just accidentally out CIA operatives at ‘Doha Station’ in Qatar?

The White House shared this image of President Joe Biden meeting via video conference with Vice President Kamala Harris and other national security officials to discuss the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan:

But many on Twitter noticed that the White House may have accidentally outed CIA operatives in the process in the boxes labeled “CIA” and “Doha Station”:

The Taliban says, "Mission Accomplished".

The scene at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul has devolved into chaos as both Afghan and foreign nationals seek to flee Afghanistan amid the Taliban’s violent campaign to reclaim the country.

Our compassionate conservative George W. Bush is nowhere to be seen or found. Silence is golden.


Speaking of silence. Has Sunsettin' Joe overdosed on Rivastigmine (Exelon)?

Haiti. Good news and bad news. First the bad news, high death toll after earthquake strikes. The good news is that the Clinton Foundation won't there to grift.

AT least 1,297 people are confirmed dead after a huge 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit western Haiti on Saturday.

The quake struck 8 km from the town of Petit Trou de Nippes, about 150 km west of the capital Port-au-Prince, at a depth of 10 km, the US Geological Survey said.

More than 5,700 are injured and many more are still missing.

Prime Minister Ariel Henry said he was rushing aid to areas where towns were destroyed and hospitals overwhelmed with incoming patients.

USGS has estimated “thousands of fatalities” are likely and “tens of thousands of injuries in poor mountainous communities" and has issued a "red alert"

Talk about a "Bad luck island".

Oh boo-hoo, The ability for Americans to defy the central planners is a wonderful thing. The tears of liberals, LOLGF'd.

Science has provided America with a decent idea of which areas of our country will be most devastated by climate change, and which areas will be most insulated from the worst effects. Unfortunately, it seems that population flows are going in the wrong direction — today’s new Census data shows a nation moving out of the safer areas and into some of the most dangerous places of all.

To quote Planes, Trains and Automobiles, we’re going the wrong way.

The Census Bureau’s new map of the last decade’s population trends shows big growth in the west and on the coasts — and declines in the inland East Coast and Great Lakes region.

Surprise, surprise!!! Research Shows Working From Home Doesn’t Work. Here’s How Employers Should Tackle the Problem

Research Shows Working From Home Doesn’t Work. Here’s How Employers Should Tackle the Problem


We followed the science on COVID-19. Now, as the end of the pandemic draws closer, it’s time to follow the science on working from home.

The verdict is clear: For many jobs—particularly collaborative, high skill level, high-value roles—working from home simply doesn’t work, and we shouldn’t confuse a temporary abnormal with a new normal.


The pandemic will not be ‘the death of the office,’ as some have suggested, but working from home also won’t become entirely a thing of the past. Many workers wouldn’t want it that way because they enjoy the freedom and flexibility it gives them. The solution for the future is a structured hybrid model, acknowledging that working from home doesn’t work long-term for most jobs, while still giving workers flexibility. One way to do that would be to allocate time slots—perhaps specific days—of in-office working for all employees to maintain workplace productivity and collaboration, while also allowing working from home to continue outside those hours.

Cats may chase laser lights. They don't follow 9mm projectiles. Genius Award Winners.

While using the laser sight on a friend’s 9mm handgun to play with a cat, a Wisconsin woman accidentally shot the weapon’s owner in the leg, according to police.

As detailed in a criminal complaint, Jashanti Pleasant, 19, was inside a friend’s Kenosha apartment Tuesday afternoon when she removed the handgun from a nightstand drawer. The gun had been placed there by James Daniels, 21.

Investigators say that Pleasant--who had been drinking brandy, according to a witness--picked up the Smith & Wesson gun and “turned on the laser sight and was pointing it at the floor to get a cat to chase it.”

While playing with the firearm, Pleasant discharged the weapon, striking Daniels in the right thigh. Daniels, who was standing in a doorway when hit, stood “in shock for a second and then he asked Ms. Pleasant if she had shot him,” according to the witness quoted in the complaint.

Now she has a leg to stand on. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A £15,000 prosthetic leg has been retrieved from a lake after an appeal to divers for help.

Josephine Bridges, from Birmingham, lost it in Windermere in Cumbria's Lake District while swimming.

A post on social media by her sister was forwarded to Angus Hosking, founder of Lake District Diving, who is regularly called by people who have lost things in the water.

"She was pretty stunned for me to have found it," he said.

Ms Bridges lost her specialist watersports prosthetic at some point after jumping off the jetty at Millerground near Rayrigg Meadow and swimming back to dry land.

Why is Nancy worried about the women and girls? The Taliban are dedicated followers of The Religion of Peace (TM)!!! Why would they do anything non-peaceful or not in the Koran to any Afghans?


(And what's the deal with the women and girls terms? I thought Birthing Person is now the approved term for a woman. And girls? As in immature birthing people, Nancy? Who are you to say some birthing people are immature? Is immature a recognized gender?)

I think you mean psychotics. Actually, I think it's run by psychotic psychopaths.

"The word psychosis is used to describe conditions that affect the mind, where there has been some loss of contact with reality."

Psychopath: "Psychopathy, sometimes considered synonymous with sociopathy, is traditionally a personality disorder characterized by persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, and egotistical traits"

Afghanistan is the tale of the conflict of two cultures. On the one hand you have a bunch of religious zealots and fanatics who force women to cover their faces, force them to stay in their homes, and refuse to let them work. And abuse children and deny them an education.

On the other hand, you have the Taliban, which ain't exactly a walk in the park either.

And there really does need to be a serious re-evaluation of why the collective we is wasting so much time on TPS reports.

I deal with a lot of Europeans, who famously get loads more time off than we do. Their corporations really aren't any more hosed up than ours. Honestly, I'm getting the feeling that they've just found through experience that everyone working four days a week is a better outcome than half of them working overtime and the other half unemployed and burning things down.

395 I am hearing that we've spent much of the last 3-4 days in Kabul forcing people to sit around the airport because they're making people wait on COVID test results before they're allowed to board a plane.

This whole clusterfuck should be a wake up call for everyone here who doesn't yet understand how fundamentally corrupt, evil, and incompetent our rulers are. Dem and GOP both. And let's not play word games, that's what they are - rulers. And they'll remain such until we've had enough of their bullshit.

And I have said it before, and will say it again: dumping illegals with the virus in red counties is a crime against humanity and everyone involved needs a rope.

Actually, the very latest from Vanden Bossche is a good read on "separating the wheat from the chaff" to decide which so-called experts might have a clue what they're talking about:

https://tinyurl.com/knamm4pn

He says don't pay any attention to TV experts. They can't know anything, 'cause they're on TV all the time, instead of looking at data and research. Second, pay no attention to "experts" with conflicts of interest. And burn "fact checkers" alive, basically.

Also, he warns not to get wrapped up in conspiracy theories (about motives) and all that. He says yep, where's there's smoke, there's fire, but don't get bogged down in all that. Just makes things much more complicated than they need to be.

507 Muslims are killing muslims, this is a good thing. This is a very good thing. This is a go dance in the street naked kinda good thing. The only downside is they are too slow about it, we should sell them even more weapons so they can kill themselves more efficiently. We should not shed a tear, and we sure as fuck should not get in the way of muslims ridding the world of their vermin selves. We have wasted entirely too much blood and treasure on trying to prevent muslims from killing muslims, despite their perfecting the practice for about 5000 years. Many presidents have battered their legacy on the rocks of the middle east, trying to prevent muslims from killing muslims. America, land of the free, propping up regime after regime that doesn't allow women to vote, or drive, or go outside unless wearing a hefty bag, or have a clitoris. Let them kill each other, step back, point, and laugh.

We did not lose in a-stan, we lost everywhere else and that is the result.

They captured the border crossings first to seal off the country, simultaneously did hits against the police and Army headquarters in all the major cities to decapitate the opposition, then launched an offensive to capture provincial capitals. Before this week, the Taliban have never been able to capture a provincial capital. I have no doubt that bribery and coercion of key leadership played a big role in their sudden success.

569 I always thought that the best move Reagan ever made was the firing the Patco strikers. When he did that, our enemies understood that he was willing to take a big risk, was not controlled by the bureaucracy, and was a little crazy. They acted accordingly.

Trump had that same aura, especially after he bombed that iranian douche, but all along the deep state was mad with telling the world that Trump was not in control and would not last. That undermined him, but in spite of that he had that aura.

I think he's gone soon. I expect in the next few weeks stories will start to leak out about how he was "distracted" in meetings, how he had trouble understanding his briefings, how decisions were delayed for days or weeks for mysterious reasons, etc. Then in late October or so, Biden will sadly announce that his health is declining and that he is resigning from office.

He doesn't have the ability to make it to next November, and even a figurehead has to occasionally appear in public. Plus, if the Dems think that they're going to get creamed in the midterms they will want to get Kamala in place with as much of her staff as possible before the GOP takes the Senate.

-----------

Our ambassador in Vietnam made a lot of mistakes during the final days, and missed a lot of chances to help get everyone ready to leave. But when the end was finally nigh, and the embassy was being evacuated, and a chopper was sent with orders to extract him...

... he took a bunch of Vietnamese civilians, and put them on that chopper instead. And then he sent that chopper back to the carrier that it had flown off of. And when the next chopper arrived with the same orders, he did the same thing. And the next chopper. And the next. And the next. He finally did get on a chopper and fly out, but it was quite a while later, and a lot of Vietnamese were able to escape the communists because of what he'd done.

But practically speaking, not much point. Taiwan is the largest direct investor in the PRC, and financially plays a big role in overall PRC trade.

ChiComs could "ruin" Taiwan via attacks, making sea commerce insecure, but again, to what end. It's not going to change the fanatical opposition to being absorbed by the huge malevolent cousin on the mainland.

For lots of reasons the credibility of US "deterrent" to attacking Taiwan was complicated, but with Trump's removal I think it got a lot simpler. US will and competence are obviously non-existent. Still don't think much happens with Taiwan.

---
This is a really interesting point. In the early 2000s I met a Chinese gentleman whose family and business fled the chicoms during the main revolution. Decades later when the situation changed they stayed in Taiwan but relocated the business to mainland China because labor was so cheap. He then relocated to the United States to do the marketing for his family business. My takeaway was this was a rather normal situation and nobody batted an eyelash at it on both sides.

On the other hand folding Taiwan back into the Chicom State is a goal that transcends logical purposes. The sock puppet, their new aphrodisiac for boners extraordinaire, has to embolden them to make a move towards making this happen.

They've won. They only way they lose now is if we start dropping thermobarics or nukes. They will capture a few westerners, videotape those captured watching as they behead any afgans who cooperated with the west. Then they will release the captured westerners to a neutral country's plane, making them run either naked or in fabulous dresses and high heels to the plane while being pelted by small rocks or spoiled food/shit by locals who may or may not be forced into throwing/stoning. It will be a total humiliation, but just below the point that we would bomb in return.

756 publius that's because the Northern Alliance was a thing back then, Badahkshan and other areas under their control or contested.

There has been an intense and geeked out discussion today among A'stan watchers about whether there will be the basis for any residual resistance, this time. Doesn't seem prospects are bright, as Panjshir is only questionable area, and it's logistically unfavorable.

The "heirs" to the Northern Alliance (in a practical sense) flew the coop yesterday - you can find photos of their vehicles left behind on the bridge into the Uzbekistan border crossing. The governor up in Mazar and the same General Dostum who was an Uzbek-ethnic warlord and pain in the arse back then also were among those fleeing. So it seems they at least have decided this time is different.

The US remains the least-worst place in terms of capital markets, rule of law (for $, contracts). Least-worst. If it weren't for political and war on terror angles, there'd be even *more* capital stored here for safe-keeping (instead of Cyprus banks, or Dubai real estate, or ....).

817 The Sock Puppet's presidency effectively ended today. He is a lame duck internationally from this point forward and his incompetence could very well shake NATO down to its core. The US can't be trusted anymore as a partner seems to be the message I'm hearing out of Europe.

The Europeans are also reporting that there is no word what is going on with the Sock Puppet. Basically there's a lid on this guy. The best info the British press has been able to dredge up is that the state department will have some comments tomorrow with a complete lack of leadership from the The Sock Puppet.

My question is if The Sock Puppet is undergoing dementia treatments out of the public eye and is in no condition to deal with things publicly. That picture of him at camp David sitting before a video screen all alone does nothing to reassure me. It seems that somebody wheeled them in there and stuck them in a chair and took a picture to at least show that he was alive.

825 Biden's existence is irrelevant to his "presidency". The airhead veep will take over sooner/later, but that's also unimportant.

The policies will continue, completely unchanged, and mostly outside the ability of any entity to change or block them.

The disaster was Trump being removed. Four years, in this context, is an eternity of destruction and idiocy.

And the country *elected* this idiot, who was always and obviously an idiot for decades before his mega-corruption and cognitive decline. So you're dealing with that badly degraded a country in 3+ years, when you get your first chance to try to right the capsized ship, reverse the flooding, restore propulsion, get your main battery back in action, and fight again.

826 I just realized that 10 years ago today (well, 8/15, but it was on a Monday), I had the big, super-friendly tabby, Toonses, who forced his way into my life, euthanized in my backyard to avoid a gruesome death from cancer (liver and panc, basically as bad as it could be). Shortly after Toonses died, peacefully, little still-feral Dorkie Dork came up see what was going on. Not wanting her to see the big kitteh she seemed to like (though he hated her) dead, I scooped her up and told her that if she moved in with me, I would take care of her and make sure she didn't suffer when the time came. I kept my promise until the last minute when evil intruded and prevented me from giving her the passing that that sweet, loving, loyal kitty deserved and would have had.

831 NATO? WTF is "NATO"? It hasn't had a mission in 30 years, and hasn't had any meaningful military capability almost as long.

The US dollar is to the world financial system as US military power is to the world military strategic balance. Actually, that's not accurate. The dollar is far more ravaged and abused by the US, yet still king due to the greatest force in nature (inertia).

US military capability still dwarfs that of almost all other countries combined. But it's kind of academic, there are few conflicts of global importance going on anyway, and one in which the US is even a potential player.

The replacement of Trump and the abandonment of the "maximum pressure" policy on Iran is far more important, actually, than the collapse of the (hollow) Afghan regime. Which is what just happened. Not some military defeat, of any sort.

Putting aside debates about Kennedy as a President, and the Bay of Pigs debacle, and even his service, he was in fact a war Vet, and he understood that there is evil abroad that has to be confronted.

As to when Biden voters will disavow, I have no idea, and not much interest. The vast majority of the electorate is stunningly LIV. Not just one "side", either. And this includes, even especially applies, to "educated" types.

I just view those voters as lead weights around the society (which they are), and certainly not countrymen. But that gets complicated too because what "country"? Just a bunch of people living here and lines on a map (well, minus the line between Brownsville and San Ysidro). Sure there are exceptions, but remember what "exception" means.

869 People have more intensity to change things than to keep them once they are changed.

There must be some ancient proverb or Renaissance philosopher that sums that up as a truism.

Yes.

Old Mama's family farmed there from the early 1740s until the house burned in 1940.

Just my flippant way of describing life while dealing with The Insanity of taking care of my 90 yr old mom (in her home) with dementia while still working a full time job. (Not to mention what's going on with Mr. I and dealing with his health issues).

"From city to city, Afghans are uniting behind #ANDSF soldiers."

"Too many innocent Afghans have been murdered, too many dedicated activists, journalists, religious leaders, and government officials have been killed. The country needs a #CeasefireNow."

ANDSF is the Afghan "army" that folded like cheap lawn furniture, of course. And on which we spent God knows how much money.
