The Morning Report - 8/30/21


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.
