The Morning Report - 8/30/21

bidenwatch.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and at the top, one person is reported dead and a million are without power in the wake of Hurricane Ida slamming into southern Louisiana, just southwest of New Orleans late yesterday. Reports of considerable damage and flooding are coming in, which are sure to mount as people return or those who remained report from the area. But all in all, given this hurricane's strength and the infamous ineptitude and corruption that turned Katrina into a legendary disaster, things likely could have been a hell of a lot worse. Prayers for all affected and hopefully the cleanup and clearing and restoration to normalcy can move ahead swiftly.

Meanwhile, the rubbing of salt into the mortal wounds of this nation continues apace because of the high treason committed by stooge president Joe Biden -- alone or more likely at the behest of one or more individuals pulling his strings from Kalorama -- aided and abetted by a military leadership that like the politicians that installed them is completely out of touch with reality. While Biden pulls one finger out of his nose and the other out of a tweener's training bra strap to point them at fat, feckless frauds like Vanilli Milley, they in turn play the Nuremberg defense in that they were only following orders.

It would be funny if it weren't both enraging as well as frightening given the consequences of all of this that these are the same people who lied to and committed what can only be described as mutiny against President Trump as commander-in-chief concerning troop levels in Syria. That was noble you see, because Orange-Man-Bad didn't know what the hell he was doing and was putting American soldiers and civilians in danger, at least in their expert opinion. Yet knowing full well what bugging out of Afghanistan at the snap of a kiddie diddler's kiddie-taint-bedewed stink-fingers would lead to did not give them pause in the slightest?!

And now we are learning that the Taliban, dark age fiends that they are, even offered Biden the chance for US forces to actually control all of Kabul and Karzai International until the August 31st deadline which would have enabled us to get everyone out in an orderly efficient manner -- and he flatly rejected it. At this point I could not care in the slightest for Biden's dementia. What he has done is a hanging offense, and what the generals did not do in not opposing him is even worse. In a just and sane world he wouldn't be alone up on the gallows.

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 [junta] 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 [junta] 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 [junta] 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. . .

. . . 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 whom 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. . .

. . .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. . .

. . . 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.

And what did Biden do as he greeted the coffins of the soldiers he let be slaughtered?

Considering how many people believe that Biden has on his hands the blood of those Americans who died when ISIS-K set off a bomb at Kabul Airport, it would have been political suicide had he failed to travel to Dover, Delaware, to show his last respect to the troops. Once there, the president's role is limited. It consists of showing respect. That's all that's asked, and Biden couldn't even do that.

As this video shows, Biden absolutely checked his watch. It was quick but it wasn't subtle.

Yeah, this isn't dementia. If anything his dementia is revelatory of what a truly horrid, sick bastard Biden is. In the wake of the Trump sham-peachments and the corruption of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies, fools like Andrew McCarthy and others kept insisting that scum like Strzok and Page were just one-offs and that the rest of the agents were decent honest patriotic Americans. Of course they were, since the entire FBI and CIA resigned en masse because of the actions of Brennan and Clapper -- Not.

But actually, there is a ray of light in the abyss:

A US Marine Corps veteran who was relieved of his command for chastising his bosses over the botched Afghan withdrawal has decided to call it quits.

Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who came under fire after the bombastic Facebook post last week, said on YouTube Sunday that he's sticking by his guns and resigning his commission -- walking away from a $2 million pension after 17 years of military service.

"I could stay in the Marine Corps for another three years, but I don't think that's the path I'm on," Scheller said. "I'm resigning my commission as a United States Marine effective now.

"I am forfeiting retirements, all entitlements, I don't want a single dollar," he said. "I don't want any money from the VA. I don't want any VA benefits. I'm sure I'm entitled 100 percent."

The video, titled "Your Move," shows Scheller sitting in front of a chessboard in an abandoned school bus near his home in North Carolina.

He said he has been overwhelmed by the show of support.

If only we had a few hundred thousand more like Scheller.

I am of two minds about this, JJ. On the one (and primary) hand, this is reflective of the moral, intellectual and legitimacy bankrupts running this hollowed-out, broken shell of a once-great nation.

On the other hand, though, this is one of the most brilliant sentences I've read in recent memory and I am deeply appreciative of the writing.

This is news to me, and it is entirely horrifying and monstrous. This means we had not one but *two* ways to handle this. First was not closing Bagram (which was the original plan - we were going to keep it, at least for a while). This can be considered a catastrophic fuckup. The second was holding Kabul with a skeleton force by treaty with the unvanquished enemy. We apparently refused to do this by choice and got people killed and greatly enriched our enemy in the process. This is not, I think, classifiable as a fuckup. This finding, if it is true, may well be treason.

41 I agree with LTC Scheller's sentiment, completely. Just not the way he did it. When you're active duty you live by a code and creed. He crossed some very bright lines and in doing so was derelict to his duty. Doing that just gives the next officer a chance to do the same for his own reasons. That eventually destroys morale and discipline. It ends the neutrality of our military. Again, I agree 100% with what he said. Just not how he did it.

44 Reading the Riley McCollum link, "They Called Him Deplorable" illustrates how rotten things are, even in Wyoming. Some asshole teacher at Jackson Hole High School put "shooting President Trump" on a test as an acceptable answer to a question. Riley and his family were offended, but the school never fired that teacher.

Riley has gone to glory, but the America he died to defend may no longer exist. What a tragedy, on all counts.

72 What is becoming more and more obvious is that Biden had decided to abandon the Afghan government, pure and simple. We've seen stories from Afghan military that Biden had than away the support system for their outposts. Taken away their servicing of aircraft. Now, we have a story that Biden had the option to protect Kabul but opted to let the Taliban do it.

We don't know for sure if the Taliban let the ISIS bombers or the sponsors out of jail, but it seems likely that if Biden had gone the other way, and decided to protect Kabul, 13 US service men and women who be alive.

73 I agree with LTC Scheller's sentiment, completely. Just not the way he did it. When you're active duty you live by a code and creed. He crossed some very bright lines and in doing so was derelict to his duty. Doing that just gives the next officer a chance to do the same for his own reasons. That eventually destroys morale and discipline. It ends the neutrality of our military. Again, I agree 100% with what he said. Just not how he did it.

I'm going to disagree Marcus in that i think that Rubicon was crossed a while ago. for the last few years, we've had senior leadership speaking in such a manner, and even lower down the ranks there's examples of the left doing it, generally without consequence. now, we have an example of someone on our side doing it. and i support him, especially since he didn't JUST complain, he did the honorable thing and got out as well.

74 Biden* almost certainly is guilty of treason. Who here thinks he will live long enough to receive the rough justice he deserves?

Any impeachment process, assuming there is one, will drag on and on, leaving him in charge to engage in more and more fuck-ups until finally his withered body expires from exhaustion.

It must be really sad to be you. What a worthless lowly existence you must live to feel that way.

Very few people disagree it was time to leave Afghanistan a long time ago. But that's not the point here. The point is competency and wisdom of action. Biden had a choice. He chose politics over what was right and in the process got good men killed and countless others gravely wounded. The withdrawal process was demonstrably working based on conditions. We've changed dates and smoked the enemy when they broke agreements. This idiot simply didn't want to follow Trump and wisdom. So he surrendered, became obsequious or is just plain incompetent. Irrespective he made extraordinarily bad decisions apparently even against the advice of cowards he appointed to lead DoD and the Pentagon. So he's either reckless, incompetent or both. That's now a pattern from everything from the border, to foreign policy, to our industries and our societal mores. He's a disgrace and most of the American people who love our country, are honest and don't, like you, put politics above that. So go light yourself on fire. You're part of the problem.

But, were I in his place and selfless enough to leave retirement goodies behind to stand up for truth, I too would have held out one last shred of hope I could have it both ways, and keep my retirement while standing up for truth.

So I can understand his error. I can even overlook it, and applaud him for speaking out, because he acted for the greater good in the best American tradition. But I also understand why he had to go.

It doesn't matter where you are or what the place is like. The schools - especially the universities, though it is generally applicable all the way down to Kindergarten or earlier - will be riddled with oppressive and often violent communists.

You can have a small college in the middle of a blood red, hyper-conservative, patriotic, gun-toting, hard-working, G-d-fearing milieu and that college will still be densely packed with communists. The public schools in the integrated school district that "serves" the area will be packed to the rafters with them, too. It doesn't matter how normal or real a pace is, the education establishment in that place will not reflect it in any way. It will be full of hard left operators actively working to corrupt and subvert the minds of anyone put in thrall to them. The wider environment has no bearing whatever.

Interesting. They are likely not wrong about the drug analogy, but it is a puzzling move in some respects. Video game obsession is unhealthy and compounding, but then so are pornography and the daddy of 'em all: social media. I don't know how the Chinese regulate or restrict porno, but I wonder if it's as severe. Their social media regulations are nothing like what they're implementing for games. Both are probably more socially dangerous, and social media absolutely is.

Which makes me wonder why the attack on gaming. I suspect because those obsessives may not be as susceptible to the state and state influence. Just a guess.

139 LTC Scheller did what a lot of us would have done in the same situation. In his case principles mattered more than anything else. When the time comes to fight people like Scheller will do so. I think there will be many military members who simply will not choose a side and sit out any kinetic activity.

Just my opinion.

140 I agree with LTC Scheller's sentiment, completely. Just not the way he did it. When you're active duty you live by a code and creed. He crossed some very bright lines and in doing so was derelict to his duty. Doing that just gives the next officer a chance to do the same for his own reasons. That eventually destroys morale and discipline. It ends the neutrality of our military. Again, I agree 100% with what he said. Just not how he did it.

Posted by: Marcus T at August 30, 2021 07:13 AM (zVC9v)

143 America's top envoy to the multinational military coalition to defeat ISIS claimed in a recent interview that he routinely lied to senior government officials about U.S. troops levels in Syria.

"We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had there," outgoing diplomat Jim Jeffrey told Defense One reporter Katie Bo Williams in an interview.

Jeffrey added that the real number of U.S. troops in Syria was "a lot more" than the several hundred Trump planned on leaving behind following his abrupt withdrawal announcement in December 2018.

Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria led to the resignation of both Defense Secretary James Mattis and Brett McGuirk, Jeffrey's predecessor as the leading U.S. envoy to the counter-ISIS effort in Iraq and Syria.

But while Trump reiterated his call to withdraw U.S. forces from northeast Syria ahead of an imminent Turkish invasion in October 2019, Jeffrey told Defense One that, for all intents and purposes, there "was never a Syria withdrawal."

151 FYI. There are many in the Military who feel like Scheller. And we do speak up internally. I do not think it is any secret in my Office where I stand. And in it's own way, that does have an effect, if in no other way, allows others to feel ok speaking up. But to blast out what Scheller did externally can be problematic. I appreciate his sentiments and passion, but his actions can present issue for good order and discipline. As does the Pentagon taking sides, and I have pointed that our loudly and repeatedly internally.

Interesting. They are likely not wrong about the drug analogy, but it is a puzzling move in some respects. Video game obsession is unhealthy and compounding, but then so are pornography and the daddy of 'em all: social media. I don't know how the Chinese regulate or restrict porno, but I wonder if it's as severe. Their social media regulations are nothing like what they're implementing for games. Both are probably more socially dangerous, and social media absolutely is. Which makes me wonder why the attack on gaming. I suspect because those obsessives may not be as susceptible to the state and state influence. Just a guess.

Right, that's what I'm driving at. They claim to be worrying about obsessiveness and addiction, but that doesn't track when they have unrestricted (though not by any means uncontrolled/uncensored) social media. They're worried about something else in gaming - whether its communication with outsiders, or clannishness/independence of gaming groups, or whatever.

That's the crux of it, and the key problem. Rumor has it - and I now believe it - that Trump tried to use the Insurrection Act to put down the rioting and the senior officers told him they would not comply with the order if he gave it.

That's a premise that is begging for a Hollywood movie. An escape room that uses exactly this premise, but no one thinks they're serious. They think it's just to seriously increase the tension and make use of a disused power plant that has been repurposed to an escape room. The first few teams make it out, but then one has trouble and the timer expires. Geiger counters start climbing. No one lets them out. Things become desperate. Etc.

It's too late. For a lie like that to work - and it would work - it needs to be quick. It needs to be a fast response, because having an answer like that come up immediately lends verity to the explanation. Saying something like that - even if it makes sense - much later won't work, because it will imply that they needed time to come up with a suitable lie.

231 JustTheNews:
Cole's lawyers filed a motion to suppress evidence gathered against their client on the grounds that the FBI had failed to disclose in a search warrant application that a publisher of extremist literature had been paid about $144,000 over 16 years to be an informant, including $82,000 for work in the case against Cole. The confidential informant (CI) also had an earlier felony conviction that wasn't disclosed, court records show.

The filings don't identify the informant by name but describe him as a publisher who "owns and operates a publishing company that distributes white supremacist writings."

Yes, there certainly are white supremacists and neo-Nazis who are not on the FBI payroll. I now doubt, however, that a single one of them is even remotely dangerous if he is *not* on the FBI's payroll. The ones not on the take are assholes who might get together with some pals to menace a local Jew until the neighbors have enough and beat them down severely (I have seen this very progression in my real life). It isn't until the FBI decides to "build a case" that there's any actual danger or risk - and even then, it usually doesn't turn into anything.

There are surely white supremacists in America - there just aren't very many and they aren't particularly dangerous. The narrative is ludicrous.

Well yeah that's just my speculation on why a politician would need to be wearing a watch.just like the "alarm" thought. If you want to deal solely in reality then it's simple. Biden wears a watch because it's an expensive one and a status symbol for him and he's always worn one so he's used to it. And he looked at his watch because he didn't give a shit about the men who died and he wanted to know how long he'd been there and when they could be done and get ice cream.

some of us remember watching the Mary Tyler Moore show every saturday night - the true Golden Age of TV. 1973, the CBS lineup started with All in the Family, then MASH, then MTM show, then Bob Newhart show (the first one), and then closed with an hour of Carol Burnett. Everyone you knew was glued to that set for 3 hours of prime time every Saturday night, no line up before or sense has ever been that stellar.

Since none of them resigned over a retarded order, they are complicit in this intergalactic goatfuckery. But SFB is the most at fault. Will he resign? I doubt it.

Will the House, Senate, his Cabinet do the right thing? I'd rather bet a dollar on the lottery.

There are more than that, but this is exactly the right attitude. If you put the two big groups - the KKK and the Aryan Brotherhood - together, they have about 50k members. Most of them are AB, and most of that group are already in prison and so don't really matter. Then you have the informal members and orbiters.

How about they do something else to appease the base? Like go on strike and set up a semi-permanent protest occupation on the Capitol lawn and keep loud, vocal, bully-pulpit pressure on for days or weeks on end?

328 If no one resigns or retires Wednesday, when the evac operation is finished, one ever will.

For the past two weeks the Biden Junta said they are totally laser-focused on the mission and didn't answer questions about how we got into the mess. They said said they'll do After-Action Reviews (AAR's) when the mission is complete.

Beginning on Wednesday the Junta will refuse to answer questions about the decisions and actions that led to the chaos, until the After Action Reviews are complete. When does that happen? Jen will circle back to us on that.

Scumbags all, every one of them.

He's part of the leftist plot, he masquerades as a "conservative", but he's a fraud, there for the graft. We have no "side" in DC, only a few who are good on an issue, by issue basis, and a small sprinkle of conservatives whose views are called "extreme".

They control the language, and they do it easily. Look how quickly people adopted Obama's use of "folks" to soften the view of islamists, or how readily we adopted the expression "mask up" which was designed to make it normal behavior. We have even equated evil deeds with illness. Hey it gets dangerous people off everyday, and gets others easier sentencing, the poor babies.

I'm sure the case can be easily made, but we have no side, so the willingness is absent.

I call it evil, but there are at least two different evils taking place. One is based on a largely racial revenge, but this one is to some extent controlled by and subordinate to the one based on greed. America's manufacturing jobs moved to China for money, the very rich, got much richer, and bought a lot of the body politic. The revenge group, might have the last laugh, but only those at the top of that heap.

Prior to this post, I didn't know who Flynn used for banking. I don't know who any celebrity uses for banking. I know who some of my relatives use for banking, but that's about it. This isn't a common element of public record.

In other words, there is no "reputational risk" to Chase, because who Flynn uses for banking isn't generally known.

369 so Jill's hair - right so she was a natural blonde, and pretty much all the ladies like that I know just keep tinting into old age because its pretty easy (no white roots) so it looks like it stays blonde.

so that's fine, a lot of people do that

the bangs and long style is actually pretty "in" right now - and bangs are pretty great as far as keeping the most unruly crown hairs out of your eyes and under control, plus it covers your forehead (fewer botoxes needed!)

her clothes are a problem AND her stylist should try a better brand of color AND she could use some long layers or something. it looks kind of ragged, her hair, even at the best of times (when it would be freshly cut and styled)

391 41 I agree with LTC Scheller's sentiment, completely. Just not the way he did it. When you're active duty you live by a code and creed. He crossed some very bright lines and in doing so was derelict to his duty. Doing that just gives the next officer a chance to do the same for his own reasons. That eventually destroys morale and discipline. It ends the neutrality of our military. Again, I agree 100% with what he said. Just not how he did it.
