No rush: Blinken says US in contact with
Americans left behind in Afghanistan,
no deadline to free them

Original Article

The United States is staying in “constant contact” with Americans left behind during President Biden’s frantic evacuation from Afghanistan who still wish to leave, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Friday, offering no timeline for freeing them from Taliban rule. On Tuesday, the US completed pulling all troops from the 20-year war, and ended their initial evacuation efforts for all Americans and Afghan allies in the country. US troops helped evacuate more than 116,000 people from Kabul, as the Taliban took over the country, including 6,000 Americans. However, at least 100 Americans remain in the country, and a clear plan or timeline for helping them leave has not been publicly released.

That’s easy for Blinken to say while he enjoyed a vacation in the Hamptons instead of making rescuing Americans his first priority. This administration’s focus was not on withdrawing in an orderly, reasonable and safe manner. It purposely was done without our best interests in mind. They could not have screwed this up more if Xi Jinping himself were making the decisions. Oh, wait… We know what is coming next. Pallets of cash will be making their way to these heinous barbarians. It’s the Obama doctrine redux - weaken the country in any way possible both foreign and domestically, arm your enemies, and then send them large amounts of cash. Obama may not be sitting in the White House but you can be sure he is pulling the strings behind the scenes, something he said would be his dream job. This is the way it goes when you have a committed anti-American cabal in charge.

Most of the “Americans” now in Afghanistan are actually native Afghans who are holding duel Afghan and US citizenship. After becoming US citizens, most immigrants today retain the citizenship of their native land, in this case Afghanistan, with most of them still having and using Afghan passports and other travel documents to enter and leave Afghanistan, along with being naturalized US citizens as the result of residing for three to five years in the USA, and going through the US naturalization process, that instantly transforms them into being referred to as “Americans”, that exempts them from the requirements of US immigration law, and qualifies them to receive US passports and other travel documents that they us3 to enter and leave the USA. Almost all of those “Americans” now in Afghanistan went there knowing the danger involved, and if they were or are encountered by the Taliban, and it comes to light that they are both “Americans” and Afghans who the Taliban believes assisted the US Forces in Afghanistan that they could be murdered.

Obviously if Biden can stall for a little while and the MSM continues to ignore the issue then the Taliban can solve this problem for everyone (except for the victims left behind). Then, as Hillary once said, at this point what difference does it make? For example, does anyone ever speak of the killing fields of Cambodia anymore? These atrocities just seem to get forgotten.

I’ve been following the trip this morning by keeping an eye on FNC’s Jen Griffin’s Twitter account. She’s on the trip and tweets that she will have an exclusive interview with Milley. So far her tweets are not exactly being met with warm and fuzzy reactions from her Twitter followers.

At this time last year, the Wuhan coronavirus was claiming around 1,000 American lives per day. It seemed to me that, absent a sudden and sharp decline in that number, Joe Biden would be our next president. It must have seemed that way to Biden and his top advisers, as well. During presidential debates that occurred a little less than a year ago, Biden ripped Trump for his handling of the pandemic. The death count was the centerpiece of this attack. So what’s the daily death count now, more than seven months into the Biden administration and with a majority of Americans vaccinated?

After the Supreme Court declined the ACLU’s request to block SB8, the new Texas law, which bans abortion after a baby’s heartbeat is detected, went into effect in the state immediately. Almost predictably, the left went into a total meltdown, suggesting that this was an all-out ban on abortions, which it very much isn’t. Liberals and Progressives alike complained that this law was somehow an affront to women everywhere (you know, after they have spent the last four years telling us to call them “birthing persons”), claiming that the majority of abortions occur after a heartbeat is detected. Well, that’s just not true. In fact,

There are very few issues out there that seem to send progressives right over the edge harder than abortion. The primary talking point, in the wake of the Biden administration’s dismal failure in Afghanistan, is that the Texas pro-life law is exactly the same type of Sharia law the Taliban imposes on women in Afghanistan. This is mind-bogglingly ignorant rhetoric that we cannot let pass. First of all, how extremely Islamophobic of the left to attack the religious beliefs of those of the Islamic faith.

Senior Biden administration health officials are delaying the Sept. 20 deadline for making booster doses of some coronavirus vaccines available to most adults — instead rolling shots out gradually when data is ready, according to three people familiar with discussions. Food and Drug Administration Acting Commissioner Janet Woodcock and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky told White House officials on Thursday that they may not have sufficient safety and efficacy data on boosters in time for the Sept. 20, the target date that they and other top health officials announced last month with backing from President Joe Biden.

Joe Biden came into office inheriting the war in Afghanistan. But unlike previous presidents, he inherited a war that was relatively quiescent by Afghanistan standards, involved few American troops on the ground, and was in a phaseout due to an agreement his predecessor had struck with the Afghan government and the Taliban. Under that deal, the U.S. would remove its troops by May 1, 2021, if the Taliban and Afghan government met certain conditions. Biden has played both sides of the Trump deal, both arguing that it tied his hands and that he would have sought a similar deal himself. This, plus Biden’s campaign to overturn as many Trump policies

The pent-up demand in the economy after more than a year of shutdowns, slowdowns, layoffs, and business failures should be contributing to skyrocketing employment numbers as companies ramp up their operations to meet that demand. And Democrats have spent trillions of dollars pouring massive amounts of cash into the economy hoping to jumpstart recovery from the pandemic-induced recession. But a large part of the economy is based not on dollars and cents but on expectations.

We were promised a return of competency, normalcy, and an end to the pandemic.

But the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended an expansion of the group of children with health conditions that makes them clinically vulnerable, expanding it to 200,000. These will include children with chronic major heart, lung, kidney, liver, and neurological conditions. They should receive two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, as they are more at risk of the virus.

What's with the bizarre campaign against Ivermectin? It's not just that the FDA has put out a quackish tweet (shown here by AT contributor Dr. Brian Joondeph, M.D.) scolding viewers that they are not horses or cows. That's in reference to the fact that in some high-dose forms, ivermectin is used as a horse dewormer, begging the question about its effectiveness when it is dosed and formulated properly as a human medical treatment for COVID, prescribed off-label. The news reports repeatedly call ivermectin a dangerous drug, implying that all uses of the drug are dangerous, even when taken properly.
