The Taliban were transformed from an insurgent rabble armed with cast-off Soviet-era weapons into one of the most well-equipped forces in the region in the space of a few days during their lightning-fast advance across Afghanistan. Following the complete collapse of the U.S.-equipped Afghan army, the Taliban were able to scoop up a trove of advanced military hardware: thousands of rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, artillery pieces and night-vision goggles.(Snip)And then there are the tactical aircraft now believed to be in Taliban custody: hundreds of helicopters, including top-of-the-line Blackhawks; dozens of heavy transport, reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft;


The same central agency that views law-abiding US citizens as domestic enemies worked hard to arm Islamic militants with advanced weaponry, some of which no doubt is in Chinese hands right now for reverse engineering. Makes you wonder. Republicans demand answers, after which a prolonged and costly internal investigation will reveal that they dindu nuffin.

Richard Nixon was forced to resign over nothing, but Laughing Joe and his Merry Marxists keep dismantling the republic, flooding us with migrants and refugees, and printing money. FTA: Rep. Mike Garcia, California Republican, is a former Navy pilot who flew multiple combat missions in the Iraq War. He said that an enlisted soldier is severely disciplined for misplacing a single rifle, but nothing seems to happen if the government loses weapons worth billions to a terrorist organization. “None of the guys who are accountable for this will be fired,” Mr. Garcia told The Washington Times.

The abandonment of all that military equipment is a fiasco for sure. But in reality, much of it will become unusable shortly after their first maintenance cycle. They won't have the parts or the mechanics to repair the most lethal equipment.

With a stern look and furrowed brows the republicans demand answers. Here's the answer you let the left steal the election now a vegetable in the White House is crashing and burning everything before he does. Don't investigate too much it's a waste of time if you don't prosecute this disaster. That is all.

My bet is that this was a key part of the agreement with Taliban. "We'll give you full, modern equipment if you'll let us leave." The PuppetMasters have an idea that the Taliban will be useful in the future, so have decided to set them up as a strong, well equipped force. There are no coincidences. And always ask: Cui bono?

Really, how does something this freakin basic happen. This is outright treason and people have to be charged. This is nothing short of aiding and abetting the enemy. Why are there no charges against these communist democrats, from the top down. Somebody gave the order because this is not normal operating procedure. Our whole country is being destroyed as we speak and nobody is doing anything about it. How do these pathetic democrats and many republicans look their children in the eye knowing they will have no freedom or quality of life. Absolutely sickening....

The usual group of RINO senators voted to confirm Blinken as the current Secretary of State. What else did they expect? There was the "illustrious" RINO in charge McConnell and several other notables, such as Graham, Colling and of course Pierre Dilecto himself Romney. Our own Todd Young was on the list of supporters, too. Go along, to get along has us in a real mess! Don't worry, especially this group will not allow any of the responsible of this disaster be perp walked, or held accountable in any way.

Taliban may have some Blackhawk helicopters, but they won't know how to fly them. As for hundreds of helicopters? I don't believe that. Unless of course the writer is referring to the drones as helicopters. I think for the most part, some of this equipment the Taliban won't be able to operate because so many of them don't know how to read, count, or even name a color. Now they will have to learn English well enough to read the manuals that go with this stuff. The vehicles are easy. Helicopters are not.

What you say would be exactly right, #2, if the Taliban had seized a half dozen Blackhawks, for example. But they now have 158 Blackhawks. They can cannibalize 100 of them and keep a lot of deadly helicopters in the air for a long time. What Biden has done-- is doing-- is so mind boggling, if it were written as the plot of a novel five years ago no publisher would have touched it. Too outlandish. The greatest superpower on earth in a matter of months shrunk to a senile doofus begging ragtag terrorists not to hurt us. The heart of the problem is this: those in power do not live in the same country we inhabit. Therefore, they don't really care what happens to our country. Their gated homes, exclusive private schools, medical care, private security guards, fat bank accounts and investments, yachts, ski chalets in Colorado-- all that goes on no matter what happens to the raggedy assed masses. How hard is it to imaging Nancy Pelosi saying, at one of her $30,000 a plate fundraisers, "Let them eat cake!"

The Taliban are busy writing thank-you cards to Joe and Barack for the nice gift. The weapons were not accidentally left behind. Every US rifle must be tracked by serial number so how did the senior officers in Afghanistan overlook that little inventory regulation? The truth will be revealed soon enough. I hope Taliban leaders assume that the Blackhawks are easy to fly, jump right in and try a couple of practice takeoffs.

A Washington-area Catholic bishop has issued a letter rebutting the transgender movement root and branch, calling gender reassignment “wrong and harmful” and saying everyone is male or female as seen in that person’s body. “The Church teaches that a person is created male or female,” Bishop Michael F. Burbidge of Arlington wrote. “No one ‘is’ transgender.” The document titled “A Catechesis on the Human Person and Gender Ideology” notes that public schools “aggressively promote” what the bishop called “a false understanding of the human person in their advocacy of gender ideology.” “Parents with children in public school must… be even more vigilant and vocal against this false and harmful

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee demanded an investigation Wednesday into allegations that Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani embezzled millions of U.S. taxpayer funds before fleeing the embattled country. Mr. Ghani hastily escaped the country last week just hours before the capital, Kabul, fell to the Taliban. He later turned up in the United Arab Emirates, which accepted him on humanitarian grounds. Shortly after his departure, a Russian embassy spokesperson told the media that Mr. Ghani tried to fit as much money as possible in a helicopter but left some of the cash on the tarmac because there wasn’t enough room.

The Associated Press came under fire once again after it published an article on Tuesday describing Palestinians who launched an incendiary balloon attack on Israel as 'activists.' 'Activists in the Gaza Strip on Monday launched incendiary balloons into southern Israel, setting off at least three fires across the border, Israel's national fire service said,' read the controversial article filed by the American news agency. The piece discussed the rising tensions between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

Fort Wayne, Ind.—With more employers requiring employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine, there may be employees who refuse. If this results into the company letting the worker go, will the person be eligible for unemployment? Samuel L. Bolinger, an attorney at the Law Office of Samuel L. Bolinger, told WANE 15’s Briana Brownlee, the answer is more than likely no. “The question is really, if the employer gives you a specific instruction or mandate to do and you decline and you are terminated for insubordination. Insubordination is one of the eight reasons you why you will not receive unemployment in the state of Indiana,” Bolinger said.

Legal experts and the American Civil Liberties Union have criticized a pair of New York judges for ordering defendants to get vaccinated if they want to make bail or be granted a plea deal. The ACLU slammed the decisions as 'troubling' and one lawyer even called the rulings 'nonsensical' and abuse of power that could be seen as grounds for the judges to be censured or suspended. The criticism comes after Manhattan judge Jed Rakoff granted the release of Elouisa Pimental, a woman accused of drug dealing, on the condition she get vaccinated. Another order came from Bronx judge Jeffrey Zimmerman who made vaccination part of a plea deal.

They’re being beaten by the Taliban. US passports are also reportedly being seized by the Taliban as well. And where is Biden? Where is he hiding? Only a Democrat would be this late addressing the chaos where our citizens are in the line of fire. Why are they so bad at this?
