Original Article

The Pentagon said Wednesday morning that between Tuesday 3 a.m. and Wednesday 3 a.m., the military evacuated about 2,000 from the Kabul airport, including 325 Americans.That small number of Americans is compared to the estimated 11,000 Americans trapped in Afghanistan, following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan and the Biden administration’s disastrously-executed withdrawal.“Eighteen C-17s have departed in the last 24 hours. These flights have carried around 2,000 passengers, and I can confirm that 325 of those passengers are American citizens,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said

325 Americans so far. Biden you cheater, you impress. That gets us down to less than 10,000 Americans. So the rest were Afghans hanging on to the side of the C-17s and those who bulled their way on board?

Does anyone still believe Joe Biden is concerned about American citizens? He does not care about the citizens of this country. He cares about Joe. That’s it.

Paraphrasing Biden: "If those 10,675 Americans were too cowardly or weak to fight their way to the airport, to board a plane that I graciously sent them, it's their own fault they are still there - and Trump's fault, too."

I read recently that Pope Francis - referring to some dictum or other he issued, said, "I want it to be confusing." The person who heard the Pope say those words was unnamed (fearful of reprisal, I guess), but I trust his word. When this Pope, who chooses not to use the title, "Vicar of Christ", wants confusion, you can guess that he is one of many who have decided order is out and and disorder is in, so "they" can reach some goal yet to be announced When you remove the military first without having a plan to remove the innocent, that's confusing, and when only 325 of 2000 people flown out of Kabul are American citizens, it gives another reason to scratch your head. Maybe it is just easier to control a mess.

Osama bin Laden banned al Qaeda from assassinating Joe Biden because the Democrat would become an incompetent president and 'lead the US into a crisis' if jihadists were successful in killing Barack Obama. Bin Laden made the remark in a 2010 letter that was found in a trove of documents at the Pakistan compound where he was killed by US special forces in 2011. The document was first made public in 2012 but has been brought back to light and given new significance amid the chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan that has gifted the country back to the Taliban.

The White House said Friday that President Joe Biden 'never shies' away from taking questions – after the president has been slammed for avoiding White House reporters' questions amid the chaos in Afghanistan.The statement about Biden's willingness to face the press came as the White House communications team has kept Biden away from the reporters who follow him – and the president has avoided his typical proclivity to engage with them on issues of the day, even amid the unfolding international crisis.

A strong supporter of former President Donald Trump who has been trying to organize an Arizona-style forensic audit of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania said his efforts have been "thwarted" by members of his own party. On Thursday, Republican state Sen. Doug Mastriano said Republican leaders in Pennsylvania were standing in the way of his efforts to initiate an audit in the state, blocking him from issuing subpoenas to election officials in Philadelphia, York, and Tioga counties, which all refused to comply with previous requests."The powers that be made sure that didn't happen," Mastriano said in a Facebook video that has since been deleted,

British paratroopers are risking their lives in Afghanistan to save UK citizens from the deadly Taliban after President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdraw from the region. While the British government is telling its citizens that “help is on the way,” Biden is telling American citizens that they are on their own. The UK is sending paratroopers to Kabul to rescue the 4,000 stranded Brits and Afghan allies in Kabul. The paratroopers were told to “prepare for face-to-face combat.”

The US Capitol was put in lockdown while police negotiated with a man in a pick-up truck demanding airstrikes in Afghanistan to 'kick the Taliban's a**' and asking to speak to Joe Biden on Thursday before surrendering to police after a five hour standoff. The man in the truck is believed to be 49-year-old Ray Roseberry from North Carolina. At 9.15am this morning, he drove his black pick-up truck onto the sidewalk outside the Library of Congress, opposite the Capitol building. Congress is in recess so no elected officials are there but there are staffers who are still working in the Capitol buildings.

Here’s the proof.

That decision has proven to be crucial, as it left Afghanistan with no U.S. military support and now leaves the civilians stranded there with one option: to try to get to the Kabul international airport through Taliban checkpoints.

Jim Geraghty’s written two posts today making the case that something is up. I’m not sold on his first post. His second is more persuasive. The first post argues that Biden’s chat with George Stephanopoulos was filled with enough contradictions and awkward stammering that, paired with his low visibility lately, we might reasonably conclude that his health has become an issue. Whether you agree comes down to a gut check on how you felt about the interview. I didn’t see it as out of the ordinary for Biden. His answers were emphatically not good but he didn’t seem checked out to me. If anything, he was combative

The report comes from Reuters who shares that well over a month before the Taliban’s march across the country, the Biden administration was sending military equipment to Afghanistan amid a “planned withdrawal.”
