The Taliban is reportedly not allowing flights carrying American citizens and green card holders to leave Afghanistan.CBS News reported that, according to congressional and NGO sources, “multiple planes that are ready to take American citizens and green card holders out of the country are being denied permission to leave by the Taliban.”A State Department email viewed by CBS News said that the flights out of Afghanistan have permission to land in Qatar “if and when the Taliban agrees to takeoff.”

Let's see: If Generals Austin and Milley just trade the Taliban one-for-one, that is, trade thrm just one of their scores of their campaign ribbons for one hostage, that should be enough to cover all of the people trying to get out. Oh, and then we trade Austin and Milley themselves for all the dog hostages. There, that's a fair trade.

How can this be true? According to Surrender Joe, Clueless Blinken and I-No-Nothing Milley, they were dealing with the new and improved Taliban. The only improvement the Taliban have experienced is the quality of military equipment they are now using. Coming soon "Hostages for $$$" with a few beheadings.

I suspect most are Afghans - not someone from Iowa. The Taliban need them to stay & run the infrastructure we built. Who else is going to be the air traffic controller at Hamid Karzai International (soon to be renamed Joe Biden International for his positive contribution to the new Islamic paradise).

Where have we seen this before? Ah yes! Iran! I remember people in the Carter administration saying we could work with the Iranians. Right up until they invaded our embassy. Now we have Biden saying we can trust and work with the Taliban! Iran held hostages for 444 days. How long will the Taliban hold hostages? Biden was around when Iran blew up, and its plain he has learned NOTHING! same with the people he has surrounded himself with.

FTA: "I worry his recommendation to the administration will be to recognize the Taliban as the official government of the United States, a Taliban organization that is a terrorist organization.” - Rep.Mike McCaul. I wonder if that was a Freudian slip, the part about the Taliban being recognized as the official government of the United States? Might as well be with Biden, et al., in charge.

Are they native Americans or naturalized Afghans who are being called “Americans” and who the Taliban judge to still be Afghans who rendered assistance to the USA during its twenty year occupation of Afghanistan? Chances are its a problem of perception, but will bribes and ransoms of billions of US dollars disguised as US foreign aid to the Taliban clear up that problem, we will probably find out soon. Don’t forget with the Taliban now operating about 85 billion dollars in US origin military equipment, the Taliban are going to need a lot of money pretty soon to purchase a lot of spare parts from the military-industrial complex to keep that military equipment operating. Maybe China will help out the Taliban in that respect.

This Saturday is the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the darkest days in American history.To mark the occasion, President Biden will travel to Ground Zero in New York where the Twin Towers were destroyed, to Virginia where a plane was flown into the Pentagon, and to a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where Flight United 93 also crashed after an on-air battle between terrorists and hero passengers.This would be a sombre enough experience for any American President given that nearly 3,000 people were killed on that infamous day back in 2001 which represented a terrible failure of US intelligence.

The federal minimum wage in the U.S. has remained glued at $7.25 an hour for the last 12 years, the longest stretch without a boost since it was first adopted in 1938. Yet there's another revealing figure that underscores how the minimum wage — created by Congress after the Great Depression as a way to ensure that Americans were fairly paid for their labor — has failed to keep up with the times. Even as workers have been more industrious — helping drive corporate profits, the stock market and CEO compensation to record heights — their pay has flatlined, or even declined when factoring

Daily coronavirus infections are more than four times what the U.S. was seeing on Labor Day last year, or a 316% increase, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. And daily deaths are almost twice as high. Blame the highly contagious delta variant and a swath of Americans refusing easily accessible vaccines that most of the developing world is furiously scrambling to obtain. Hospitalizations are up 158% from a year ago, U.S. Health and Human Services data shows. The result: Some U.S. hospitals are getting so crowded with COVID-19 patients that physicians may soon be compelled to make life-or-death decisions

Sometimes it is difficult to know whether or not Joe Biden is senile or just dumb. I know it’s tempting to ascribe everything he does to his dementia, but he’s been stupid for his whole life. Even people suffering from dementia have moments of lucidity, so it’s really impossible to know what is the true motivation behind the President’s asininity. The effects and the facts of it, however, are easy and important to dissect, because whether it’s due to him losing his grip on reality, that he’s just a very simple and dumb man, or a combination of both doesn’t really matter, what matters is the end result.

In “Joe Biden displays his wisdom,” Paul Mirengoff draws on Peggy Noonan’s current Wall Street Journal column for its insight into the failings of President Biden. I thought it was a good Noonan column and true even if it was Noonan speaking, but late and therefore hurried. Noonan is in a rush to make it clear she sees what everybody else has seen over the past few weeks. Noonan doesn’t mention her support for Biden in her September 2020 Wall Street Journal column when the choice was between Biden and Trump. Conrad Black observed that Noonan had gone full metal-jacket for Biden. Black’s column has stood the test of time.
