The Morning Report - 9/9/21

wellinend.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and with the Taliban in control of Afghanistan, and most likely the Chi-Coms and Iranians in the wings, there are still hundreds of Americans and others who could not escape after Joe Biden's "Operation: Warp Speed Bug-Out" left them high and dry. With that we have examples of both abject lunacy and crystal clear sanity from that strategic shit hole. The twist is which side displayed what.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken expressed concern Wednesday that the newly-formed Taliban cabinet in Afghanistan is not diverse enough. During a joint press conference with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, Blinken condemned the Taliban for not keeping their word to form an "inclusive" government in Afghanistan. Blinken added that he is "concerned by the affiliations and track records" of some members of the cabinet, some of whom have ties to U.S.-designated terrorist organizations.

You got that? Anthony Blinken - whose name should be changed to Blinkered - is upset that the Taliban's new government contains no women or homosexuals. Wait until he finds out there aren't any Jews! Taliban's in for a really nasty letter to the NY Times. But fear not, gentle reader. The new government in Kabul actually has a diverse range -- of top terrorists, some of whom were once guests of ours at Club Gitmo. Here's a t-shirt idea "My Son Came Home from Afghanistan in a Box and All I Got Was This Lousy Bowe Bergdahl!"

Four of the five Taliban members released from Guantanamo Bay by the Obama administration in a prisoner trade for Bowe Bergdahl are now part of the Taliban's hardline government in Afghanistan, according to local reports.

"The four members of the so-called 'Taliban Five' who have joined the new government are Acting Director of Intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, Acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs Norullah Noori, Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Fazl, and Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairullah Khairkhah," the New York Post noted Wednesday. "The fifth member of the Taliban Five, Mohammad Nabi Omari, was appointed governor of eastern Khost province last month. . ."

. . . [Bowe] Bergdahl, Military Times noted, "abandoned his post in June 2009 on a deployment to Paktika province, Afghanistan," and "was subsequently captured by the Taliban and held as a prisoner of war for nearly five years." The Obama administration orchestrated a prisoner exchange and selected the five Taliban leaders to swap for Bergdahl, even though an assessment recommended the four remain in Guantanamo Bay.

Now, for some good news to report from Kabul, from the estimable Robert Spencer:

In a striking depiction of the eclipse of twenty-first-century woke orthodoxy by Islamic rule, the Taliban have begun painting over a series of murals in Kabul, including one depicting George Floyd with the legend, in English, "I can't breathe."

The murals were the most visible manifestations of the kind of society U.S. authorities had hoped Afghanistan would become, honoring all manner of secular saints revered in the West. Painted on Kabul's concrete blast barriers by a group of Afghan artists calling themselves the Artlords, the murals celebrated, according to the UK's Daily Mail, "gender equality and the signing of the US-Taliban agreement towards peace," among other things.

Omaid Sharifi, co-founder of Artlords, said: "Some of these murals were the soul of Kabul. They gave beauty to the city and kindness to the people of Kabul who were suffering." They may have given beauty to the city, but murals celebrating George Floyd and gender equality were not expressions of the soul of Kabul, but of the woke, post-modern, Leftist West, the soul of the people who have spent twenty years since 9/11 stigmatizing and demonizing opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression as "Islamophobia," the soul of Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and their supporters.

In place of the murals, the Taliban have painted the Islamic profession of faith and other Islamic statements, as well as a claim that they are the "true defenders" of Afghanistan. The contrast is telling, and those in the West who are more concerned about "Islamophobia" than about jihad terror should take note: no matter how much aid witless Western countries give them, the Taliban and other jihad groups intend to destroy Western Leftism along with every other manifestation of secular liberalism.

This lesson seems lost upon the faltering guardians of the woke order. On Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken complained about the makeup of the Taliban's new Afghan government: "We're assessing the announcement but despite professing that a new government would be inclusive, the announced list of names consists exclusively of individuals who are members of the Taliban or their close associates, and no women. . . "

. . . Do [Blinken's and German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas'] balloons ever land? Do they have any reason whatsoever to think that the Taliban care in the slightest degree about what the "international community" thinks? The Taliban showed exactly what they think of the "international community" and its approval when they painted over the mural of Saint George Floyd. The Taliban have their own values, priorities, and heroes, and they are not those of the Western Left. The sooner the likes of Antony Blinken and Heiko Maas grasp that, the better off they and their countries will be, but they're much more likely to ignore the lesson of the Floyd mural and shower billions upon the Taliban in the fond hope that the blizzard of money will turn the Taliban's hearts toward the "international community."

I have to say, when you look past who and what these people are, painting over the George Floyd mural as a sign of rejecting a decadent, alien culture is a hell of a lot more sane, or at least understandable, than Blinken being incredulous and upset that a dark age totalitarian death cult refuses to be "inclusive."

And on that note, we segue quite nicely into the continued insanity right here at home where we are now well into the 76th week of 2 weeks to "flatten the curve." The only thing that's been flattened in all this is our economy, our way of life, our sanity and our freedom. Despite common sense, history, real, non-Lysenko-ized science and examining the progression of the Beijing Breathing Blight here and abroad since it first landed here, the Junta in DC has only the fear of a virus marginally more lethal than common flu with which to distract, as well as dispirit and more crucially oppress the citizenry. And not just for 2 weeks but forever.

Biden, fresh off his questionable role as a meteorologist, intends to use his unique skills to issue a 6-pronged plan to contain a virus that no one can control.
. . . White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters traveling with Biden aboard Air Force One that he will lay out the six-pronged strategy 'working across the public and private sectors to help continue to get the pandemic under control.'

Asked about possible new mandates, Psaki said the White House would offer more details later about the plan and acknowledged that the federal government cannot broadly mandate that Americans get vaccinated.'We need to continue to take more steps to make sure school districts are prepared and make sure communities across the country are prepared,' Psaki added.

I am sure the 6-pronged plan will be every bit as successful as the border control and Afghanistan withdrawal plans.

There are a number of links in the Chinese Coronavirus section, specifically the comparisons between Israel and Sweden, Gibraltar and Hillsdale County, MI, among others that just underscore the abject lunacy of what in essence has been a double mastectomy, amputation of both legs and an arm, and a prefrontal lobotomy to combat pink eye.

We already have psychopaths in show biz (but I repeat myself) and more alarmingly medical professionals calling for the denial of medical attention to people who refuse to be vaccinated. Will that be one of Biden's prongs? My big fear is banning airline and other travel as well as the institution of a federal government database which believe me is going to be used for a hell of a lot more nefarious purposes than merely to make sure you comply with a vaccine mandate. I am going to do my damndest not to comply with this but personal situations may compel me to have to. It's one thing to wave around a fake "ausweis" to go into a bar or a movie theater but I would be sweating through my clothes like Billy Hayes with 10 pounds heroin taped to his stomach at Attaturk International if I had to get on a plane with the TSA copping a feel.

And it won't stop at just one injection. It will be yearly boosters because of the nature of these vaccines let alone this virus, or whatever the hell mutation it is now since surely Classic C'rona has mutated out of existence. The vaccines themselves, if they ever did work as advertised, are by now useless as well as completely unnecessary because of Ivermectin, Regeneron, HCQ and a whole host of cheap, effective therapeutics that Big Pharma and the Big Guy are demonizing and suppressing.

Well what do you expect? Biden and those pulling his strings have brought nothing but absolute ruin to this nation in just 7 months and combined with the Afghanistan catastrophe have perhaps sent the course of history careening into a new dark age. It's commenter Ordinary American's "law of totalitarian physics" in play. "The more ruin he brings, the more he's disliked, the more they will all tighten the screws."

  • "If the intelligence community knew about the dangerous research going on at Wuhan and was directing funding to it through Daszak, then it is complicit in a coverup over [Chinese] COVID-19. That would explain why the recent intelligence review of the origins of the [Chinese] COVID-19 ordered by [so-called quote-unquote "president"] Biden looked curiously like a whitewash, at least the short, unclassified version we have seen. . . Such a conclusion beggars belief but it might explain why Daszak and Fauci seem to be protected from hard questions. If the American government played any part in the research that led to the lab leak that likely caused the pandemic, the world needs to know."
