American stranded in Afghanistan says Taliban is ‘going door-to-door’ hunting for Americans

Meanwhile, Biden’s handlers won’t call the Taliban the enemy, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff claims that the withdrawal from Afghanistan was meticulously planned.

Taliban is ‘hunting Americans,’ says California mom-to-be left behind in Afghanistan

by Brie Stimson, Fox News, September 5, 2021:

House Foreign Affairs Committee member Darrell Issa on the fight to free trapped citizens in Afghanistan and bring them back to America.

A pregnant woman named Nasria, a California native, flew to Afghanistan in June to visit family and get married. As of early September, she remained one of the estimated 100 to 200 Americans left behind in the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces, according to a report.

Now that the U.S. military is gone, the Taliban is “hunting Americans,” she told the Voice of America.

“I think to myself, ‘Am I going to make it home? Am I going to end up living here? Am I going to end up dying here? What’s going to happen?’” Nasria, 25, who asked to be referred to only by her first name for safety reasons, said.

“Apparently they’re [the Taliban] going door-to-door … trying to see if anybody has a blue passport,” she said.

Last week, U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who has been working to rescue Americans remaining in Afghanistan, said during an appearance on Fox News that Nasria had been kicked in the stomach by Taliban fighters.

“Anyone who says there aren’t people stranded is wrong,” Issa said during the broadcast.

As the country fell to the Taliban, Nasria and her husband, an Afghan national, hurried to the overcrowded and chaotic Kabul airport in an effort to evacuate.

“It was so hard to get on a flight. There were a couple of days where we had to sleep on streets,” she said. “People were literally stepping over people. That’s how bad it was.”…

Democrat Party Found Guilty Of Election Violations

It’s how they roll. They know no other way. Election integrity is the only thing – despite the daily horrors the Democrats are inflicting upon the American people. Without free and fair elections, we, the people, are a conquered nation without power or recourse.

Key Takeaways:

  • The FEC ruled that Tennessee Democrats were guilty of financial “violations.”
  • The Party admitted to the violations, and settled with a fine of $103,000, and those involved must “undergo training.”
  • FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub says the penalty is too light, and doesn’t fit the crime.

Democrat Party Found Guilty Of Election Violations – FEC Rules Tennessee Dems Tried To Cover Up “Misreported Millions”

By Jackson Wright| American Journal Daily, September 1, 2021:

Democrat Party Found Guilty Of Election Violations – FEC Rules Tennessee Dems Tried To Cover Up “Misreported Millions”

Politics is often full of corruption and other money-related issues. This affects both parties, of course, but it’s the Democrats who have been found guilty of certain violations.

This involves the Tennessee Democratic Party and a large six-figure settlement. It also highlights a lot of “misreported” money that didn’t go to the right places, and failure to report financial info.

The end result — the DNC has admitted its guilt.

Politics is often full of corruption and other money-related issues. This affects both parties, of course, but it’s the Democrats who have been found guilty of certain violations.

This involves the Tennessee Democratic Party and a large six-figure settlement. It also highlights a lot of “misreported” money that didn’t go to the right places, and failure to report financial info.

The end result — the DNC has admitted its guilt.

Back in January, FEC commissioners voted unanimously that they had “reason to believe the Tennessee Democratic party” was in violation of the law.

That’s because the Party reportedly “failed to report total receipts and disbursements,” and also failed to “itemize receipts received via joint fundraising transfers.” Millions of dollars were in question in this investigation.

Interestingly, this probe was in regards to the 2016 election cycle.

We often see campaign money funneled in various directions during election cycles. But this time, the Democratic Party got caught, and it’s even more incriminating that they refused to provide the financial records.

And the numbers aren’t small, either. Via The Daily Wire:

The Democratic Party of Tennessee agreed to pay a six-figure fine to settle a Federal Election Commission case alleging that it misreported millions of dollars in campaign funds, according to new FEC documents.

The FEC said that ‘during the 2016 election cycle, the [Party] Committee failed to disclose receipts and disbursements totaling $2,739,911 on its original reports filed with the commission.’

There were also $1,509,766 in contributions the Party failed to itemize. And the Committee didn’t amend its report to reflect a gross $78,999 in fundraising efforts.

The FEC decided the Democrats were in violation across the board, and that means a big settlement.

This includes a fine in excess of $100,000 and those guilty will have to “undergo training.” However, some think this settlement isn’t an appropriate punishment, and the penalty should’ve been stiffer.

FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub wrote on August 27:

The negotiated agreement requires the Tennessee Democratic Party to pay a civil penalty of $103,000 for the $3,677,981 in misreported activity…

These extensive violations merited a higher penalty.

She added that the penalty in this case “deviates from and is below what the Commission would normally seek or accept.”

In this way, it seems like the Democrats got off too easy. Their Republican counterparts would probably agree, especially considering just how much money was improperly reported during the election cycle.

The other problem is that the fine and “training” likely won’t deter the DNC from just doing it again, as Weintraub noted.

Political corruption in regards to fundraising and contributions is nothing new. But when the consequences don’t really fit the crime, such issues will continue to be a stumbling block.

Even so, the fact that the FEC did find the Tennessee Democrats guilty of these violations might be a step in the right direction.

VIDEO REPORT: All Hell is About to Break Loose in Georgia

Knuckling under to pressure by Democrat activist Stacey Abrams, Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger and the State Election Board passed an emergency rule to allow the widespread use of unsupervised ballot drop boxes for the 2020 election.

Under Georgia law, only the voter or his or her legal representative is allowed to deposit ballots in drop boxes. Part of the emergency rule allowing drop boxes required 24/7 video surveillance of each drop box location.

Conservative watchdog group True the Vote, which obtained and has analyzed thousands of hours of the surveillance video, reportedly found evidence showing over 240 ballot harvesters in Georgia illegally going from drop box to drop box in the middle of the night dumping backpacks of ballots while wearing gloves, presumably to hide fingerprints.

According to True the Vote, the alleged perpetrators dumped ballots at an average of 23 drop boxes a night at drop box locations throughout the state, including ones in Georgia’s four largest counties: Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb and Gwinnett.

John Fredericks, a news reporter with Real America’s Voice, has been working with True the Vote. See Steve Bannon’s 2.5 min. interview with Fredericks in the first video below, and then scroll down for an interview with Real America’s Voice journalist, Heather Mullins, who reveals how True the Vote investigators used cell phone pings and other forensic evidence to determine that individual ballot harvesters went from one drop box to multiple others, illegally dropping off ballots at each location.

When the post-JFK Democratic Party adopted Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky as its most revered political strategist, it embraced his “ends justify the means” election tactics, thus giving away the sense of honor it once had. The only issue Democrats have with election fraud is the fear of getting caught.

How the most important election in our lifetime was rigged

Gleeful that President Trump was finally driven from office by the implementation of massive mail-in voting in this pandemic election year, mainstream “journalists” are saying there’s no evidence of widespread voter fraud. Really?

separate bag so they could be hand-stamped with a bogus Nov. 3 postmark. Watch:

How pervasive was ballot tampering by USPS supervisors in 2020?

Was the alleged USPS voter fraud in Michigan an isolated incident? Not according to a subsequent Project Veritas video, in which another USPS insider, this one in Erie, PA, said the following on Nov. 5:

“These ballots coming in today, tomorrow and yesterday are all supposed to be postmarked Nov. 3. We have to separate out the ballots and give them directly to the supervisor. They’re postmarking them [Nov. 3] … and taking them directly to the ballot box.” 

Pennsylvania USPS Whistleblower Exposes Anti-Trump Postmaster’s Illegal Order To Back-Date Ballots

The next day, Nov. 6, yet another USPS insider, this one based in Coraopolis, PA, told Project Veritas that his supervisor ordered postal carriers to separate and turn in ballots postmarked after Election Day so the ballots could be sent to be counted. Illegal tampering of election ballots by USPS supervisors is clearly not an isolated occurrence.

2nd PA USPS whistleblower: Postmaster ordered late ballots picked up; thinks they will be BACKDATED

According to the Los Angeles times, the post office has become “a potent weapon” for the Democratic Party. Indeed it has. USPS has nearly 500,000 employees. The odds are off the charts that countless other Democrat postal supervisors committed voter fraud this year in every swing state and every swing district.

How pervasive was ballot tampering by USPS supervisors in 2020? We will never know. With Biden in the White House, the matter will be swept under the rug forever, and the mainstream media will bury the story, as it routinely does with any story that harms Democrats.

Thank you, Jesus! Democrat ballots magically appear out of nowhere

According to a news segment I heard on an Atlanta radio station, after reporting Nov. 5 that less than 20,000 mail-in votes remained to be counted—which would not be enough to overcome Trump’s 18,000-vote lead in Georgia—a heavily-Democrat county announced the following day that it had magically discovered boxes containing 55,000 uncounted ballots, more than enough to flip the state to Biden. How many of those suddenly discovered ballots were illegally filled out by Democrat ballot harvesters? We will never know. How many of those ballots were postmarked after Election Day and then fraudulently hand-stamped “Nov. 3” by corrupt USPS supervisors? We will never know.

Systemic voter fraud has become a staple of Democrat election strategy

I contend that what’s reported above is but the tip of a massive ice berg of systemic voter fraud carried out by Democrats in every election cycle. I do not say that to be inflammatory. I say it because I believe it’s true. Please allow me to justify that assertion.

Three weeks prior to the 2016 election, investigative journalist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released video of an undercover sting in which high level Democrat operatives bragged about running a nationwide voter fraud operation financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign:

  • “We’ve been busing in people [illegal voters] for 50 years and we’re not going to stop now.”
  • ”[We know] this is illegal.”
  • “I think backward from how they would prosecute us, and then try to build out a method to avoid [getting caught].”
  • “We implement the plan across every Republican-held state.”
  • ”[Our operation] causes massive changes in state legislatures and Congress.”
  • “Hillary knows what’s going on.”

If America had an honest press, Democrats would pay a steep price for rigging elections

One of the covert operatives caught in the Project Veritas sting is a longtime Democrat named Bob Creamer. Found guilty in 2005 of tax violations and bank fraud, Creamer in no fringe player in Democratic Party politics. Official visitor logs show the convicted felon visited the Obama White House 342 times, including 47 personal meetings with President Obama, a fact that was buried by the corrupt mainstream media when O’Keefe’s explosive exposé was released less than a month before the 2016 election.

Although Creamer was forced to resign after being caught on tape discussing his role in a nationwide voter fraud operation funded by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, the Democrat dirty tricks operative was honored with a front row seat at President Obama’s Farewell Address in January 2017.  Click here to see an NBC News screengrab of Creamer and his wife seated directly in front of the podium where President Obama spoke. In the Democratic Party, getting caught bragging about a nationwide voter fraud operation is worthy of being awarded the most coveted seat in the house.

Bottom line:

When a political party projects itself as morally superior to its opponents, hyper-partisans among its followers don’t have to be told to do whatever it takes to ensure its electoral success. The postal supervisors referred to above likely required little prodding. Ditto the election officials in Philadelphia who illegally denied access to Republican observers.

Under the radar election rigging by rank and file Democrats has become an acceptable practice within the party. When added to nationwide voter fraud operations funded by Democrat presidential campaigns and the Democratic National Committee, election rigging has become a systemic problem within the modern Democratic Party.

Since voter fraud occurs one ballot at a time, “proving” the existence of widespread voter fraud is difficult. The best proof is the adage Where there’s smoke there’s fire. As documented above, plenty of voter fraud smoke hovers in and around the Democratic Party. If America had an honest press, Democrats would pay a steep price for rigging elections.

Note: Postal workers with a story to tell are invited to confidentially share their experience with Project Veritas by email (veritastips@protonmail.com) or phone (1-914-908-2900, press ‘1’ for tips).

Wisconson to Begin Audit of 2020 Presidential Election Results

No matter how hard the Democrat party of treason obfuscates, denies, deceives and prohibits any query into the greatest political theft in human history, it is not going away.

WE WILL PURSUE EVERY PEACEFUL OPTION TO RETAKE THE COUNTRY FROM THE DEMOCRAT INSURRECTIONISTS. BUT WE WON’T STOP THERE.

Wisconsin to begin audit of 2020 presidential election results

By Alex Caldwell , RSBN, September 2, 2021:

Wisconsin Republican state legislators approved an audit of the state’s 2020 presidential election results, to begin in the coming weeks. Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman was appointed to oversee the investigation of the election results.
Michael Gableman traveled to Sioux Falls, SD to attend MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium on election integrity in August.

Gableman traveled to Arizona last month to learn about their election audit and how it could be useful in Wisconsin.

“I learned a lot there that will be helpful to my investigation,” said Gableman, who also attended the election fraud symposium led by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in Sioux Falls, South Dakota last month.

Gableman’s investigation is one of several in the state of Wisconsin. The nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau is reviewing the results of last year’s election. Republican State Rep. Janel Brandtjen, chairwoman of the Assembly Elections Committee, issued subpoenas to election clerks in Brown and Milwaukee counties for voting machines and ballots.

President Donald Trump issued a statement calling Brandtjen a “strong and great leader.”

“All eyes are on Wisconsin as they begin their election audit,” said Trump. “Hopefully Republican Speaker Robin Vos has the integrity and strength Wisconsin needs to support Rep. Brandtjen’s efforts. Our Country is counting on it!”

Legislative attorneys have stated that election subpoenas are not valid unless Republican Speaker Robin Vos signs them.

Vos replied saying that if Gableman believes that subpoenas are necessary, “we will look into making sure those can happen.”

Republicans have attempted to change voting laws in Wisconsin since last year, but their efforts have been vetoed by Gov. Tony Evers, D-Wis. Evers vetoed legislation last month that would have required residents that vote absentee to provide ID.

Joe Biden was projected as the narrow winner of Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes for the 2020 presidential election after securing the state by less than one percent of votes.

VIDEO: January 6th Political Prisoners of Biden Admin File Formal Complaint With UN Human Rights Committee

Tortured, beaten and kept in solitary, the Americans who stood for election integrity on January 6th are prisoners of war.

Decent, freedom loving Americans have no recourse. Imagine the desperation — the United Nations Human Rights Committee.

At noon on Aug. 27, 2021, outside the United Nations in New York City, Look Ahead America (LAA)and Citizens Against Political Persecution (CAPP) announced they will present a joint letter to the United Nations Human Rights Committee to investigate and demand relief for the Biden Administration’s January 6 political prisoners.

Speaking,  Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America and Cara Castronuova, Founder of Citizens Against Political Persecution (CAPP) regarding their  Formal Complaint. They are demanding sanctions against key Biden Administration Officials.

From the complaint:

“Today I write in support of basic human rights for a specific group of Americans who have been disparately and inhumanely treated by their government – singled out, imprisoned, and even physically abused – because of their political beliefs. As outlined herein, LAA has sought relief from several members of the United States government, as well as other U.S.-based human rights advocacy groups. We have been largely ignored, and human rights violations continue unabated, with no relief in sight. Those avenues exhausted, and in recognition of the United Nations’ long and prestigious history of human rights advocacy, we ask for your review and consideration of these prisoners’ plight.”

Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America, made the following statement:

“Not only do we urge the United Nations to investigate this abuse of human rights, but we ask that other governments hold US officials to the same standards US officials have held others around the world. Just as the US government has imposed sanctions on foreign leaders whom they allege have fallen short of international norms, we urge government around the world to impose travel restrictions and financial penalties against President Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and other US government officials who involved in this gross violation of human rights.”

Cara Castronuova, Executive Director of Citizens Against Political Persecution, made the following statement:

“We here at Citizens Against Political Persecution have been fighting for the January 6th detainees for months now. The government continues to unconstitutionally detain our fellow American citizens and we feel that submitting this letter to the United Nations is the next logical step towards justice. Hopefully the United Nations hears our plea, as we are the voices of the unheard political prisoners right now who are not able to speak for themselves.”

Colonel in 82nd Airborne Division Wrote in Frantic Leaked Texts: “We Are F*cking Abandoning American Citizens”

National strike!

Seriously, Americans who stand by are just as culpable.


READ THE TEXTS BY CLICKING HERE.


“We are fucking abandoning American citizens,” said an Army colonel assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division

By Cristina Laila, Gateway Pundit, September 1, 2021:

Joe Biden on Tuesday said his botched withdrawal which resulted in the deaths of 13 US service members and hundreds, if not thousands of stranded Americans was an “extraordinary success.”

However, text messages between US military commanders and private citizens paint a different picture.

“We are fucking abandoning American citizens,” said an Army colonel assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division in secret text messages leaked to Just the News:

The text messages and emails were provided to Just the News by Michael Yon, a former Special Forces soldier and war correspondent who was among the private citizens working with private networks and the military to rescue stranded Americans.

Yon told Just the News that a group of Americans were abandoned at the Kabul airport, pleading for help as military officials told them they were finished with evacuations. “We had them out there waving their passport screaming, ‘I’m American,’” Yon said Tuesday while appearing on the John Solomon Reports podcast. -Just The News

“People were turned away from the gate by our own Army,” Yon said.

“You guys left American citizens at the gate of the Kabul airport,” Yon wrote Tuesday to the commander. “Three empty jets paid for by volunteers were waiting for them. You and I talked on the phone. I told you where they were. Gave you their passport images. And my email and phone number. And you left them behind.”

He added: “Great job saving yourselves. Probably get a lot of medals.”

At Least 29 Sacramento School Children Abandoned in Afghanistan, Among Thousands Still Stranded

What happened to “no child left behind”?

The Democrat party is evil.

29 Sacramento students stuck in Afghanistan, school district says

he last U.S. flight out of Kabul took off Monday, capping a bloody and chaotic end to America’s longest war.

By: NBC News,  

More than two dozen students from the Sacramento, California, area remain in Afghanistan after the U.S. evacuation ended earlier this week, according to San Juan Unified School District.

“We can confirm that we currently have 29 students, from 19 families, in Afghanistan,” Raj Rai, director of communication for the school district, said Tuesday, responding on behalf of Superintendent Kent Kern. “We stand ready to support these students and families in whatever way that we can.”

Earlier Tuesday, the total number of students from San Juan Unified School District still in Afghanistan was thought to be 32, but the district since learned that three students had been evacuated, he said.

The Sacramento area has one of the largest populations of Afghan immigrants in the U.S.

The last U.S. flight out of Kabul took off a minute before midnight local time Monday (3:29 p.m. ET), capping a bloody and chaotic end to America’s longest war and opening a new, uncertain chapter for Afghanistan.

Since July, the U.S. has helped to airlift more than 120,000 people out of Afghanistan, including roughly 5,500 Americans. President Joe Biden said Tuesday that roughly 100 to 200 Americans still remained in Afghanistan who have “some intention to leave,” many of whom are dual citizens.

While tens of thousands of evacuees made it out as the U.S. military withdrew, initial figures suggest that only around 8,500 of those who left in recent months were Afghans, according to numbers released by the Biden administration and estimates from advocates.

It was not clear if the students from the Sacramento area were U.S. citizens.

A spokesperson for the State Department said they could not comment on specific cases, but officials were continuing to assist U.S. citizens and their families in Afghanistan. The department was also continuing efforts to help lawful permanent residents, as well as many Afghans who “stood with us over the years” and are seeking to leave Afghanistan, the spokesperson said.

The Sacramento Bee reported that at an information session at a local high school last week, students and parents asked questions about how to get their loved ones out of Afghanistan. Humaira Hanif, 21, wiped away tears as she asked how to bring her mother to the U.S., the paper reported.

Travis Horne, communications director for Rep. Ami Bera, D-Calif., said his office was in close contact with San Juan Unified School District and had sent the information of students stuck in Afghanistan to the Department of Defense and the State Department.

“We are pushing the DOD and State for an update,” he said.

NBC San Diego station KNSD reported Tuesday that a San Diego-area family, including three students who go to schools in Cajon Valley Union School District, were also not able to make it out of the country. It was not immediately clear how many other U.S. school districts were missing students because they were unable to get out of Afghanistan.

The U.S. war in Afghanistan drew to a close Monday nearly 20 years after America invaded in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, toppling the Taliban government.

After a heavy cost in lives and a price tag of $2.3 trillion, the Taliban are back in power having swept aside the U.S.-backed government in a lightning-quick offensive that took Afghans and the West by surprise.

The U.S. hopes Americans and Afghans will be able to leave once Kabul airport is back up and running, but it remains unclear how long that will take.

DHS’s E-Verify Authorizes Thousands of Illegal Immigrants to Work in U.S.

The government’s pricey system to verify that employees are authorized to work legally in the U.S. is somewhat of a joke that has approved thousands of illegal immigrants and hundreds of thousands of foreigners without using its own photo-matching process to confirm identities. Additionally, the system, which is operated by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), deemed around 4,000 foreign-born applicants as “employment authorized” based on employer-sponsored visas without verifying that candidates were actually hired by the employers that sponsored them.

The famously inefficient program is known as E-Verify, a costly database that screens new employees using records from various government agencies to confirm the candidate is in the country legally. It is a web-based system that supposedly matches information provided by new hires against DHS and Social Security Administration (SSA) records. USCIS operates it because the agency is responsible for administering the nation’s lawful immigration system. The program is available to employers in every state as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. For private businesses it is voluntary but federal contractors and subcontractors must use it to vet workers. The government claims E-Verify is “currently the best means available to electronically confirm employment eligibility.”

That is distressing considering the lapses that have been well documented over the years. The most recent E-Verify problems are the focus of a lengthy federal audit published just a few days ago by the DHS Inspector General. In its report, the watchdog blasts USCIS, identifying “deficiencies” that illustrate the program needs “additional capabilities” to “more effectively confirm that individuals are eligible for employment in the United States.” The document identifies weaknesses in E-Verify’s process for confirming identity during employment verification and discloses that the system’s photo-matching mechanism is not fully automated, but rather, relies on employers to confirm individuals’ identities by manually reviewing photos. “We also determined that in fiscal year 2019, E-Verify returned an ‘Employment Authorized’ result for about 280,000 non-U.S. citizens without using the photo-matching process to confirm their identities,” the report says. “Additionally, although the majority of individuals submit a driver’s license to prove identity, E-Verify’s process does not use photos to ensure that individuals match the license submitted.”

It gets better. Investigators reveal they “found errors in E-Verify’s license verification process that resulted in E-Verify deeming about 613,000 individuals ‘Employment Authorized’ without meeting USCIS’ own identification system use requirement.” The probe further determined that E-Verify returned an “Employment Authorized” result for almost 3,000 non-U.S. citizens who did not meet USCIS’ verification requirements. Those are considered illegal immigrants. E-Verify also authorized 4,000 non-U.S. citizens to work based on an employer-sponsored visa without verifying that the individual was hired by the employer that sponsored them. “Lastly, USCIS has not completed full testing of E-Verify’s capabilities to determine whether the system can handle the projected increase in users,” the report states, attributing the problems to USCIS’s failure to develop or evaluate internal controls necessary to detect, track and investigate system errors. “Until USCIS addresses E-Verify’s deficiencies, it cannot ensure the system provides accurate employment eligibility results,” the watchdog writes.

Since it was launched in 1996, E-Verify’s efficiency has come under fire despite receiving generous funding from Congress. This fiscal year, the system got $118.7 million from American taxpayers. Around 909,000 employers throughout the nation use it to verify the employee work authorization of more than 40 million hires, making it an important tool to curb illegal immigration since jobs are a huge lure for migrants. For years undocumented immigrant workers have been able to pass an E-Verify check with fake identification documents. In fact, an audit conducted for the federal government more than a decade ago revealed that around 54% of illegal immigrants workers are approved by E-Verify to work legally in the U.S. It seems that little has changed to assure the system is more efficient.

Biden’s America-Last Administration: U.S. Aid Will Keep Flowing to Taliban

My latest in PJ Media:

The war is lost, but no one is going to be held accountable and the same blinkered woke dopes are in charge. In fact, the one whose very name is Blinken, the secretary of State, explained Monday how the Taliban could gain the “international legitimacy and support” that is obviously such a high priority for them, and explained that even if it didn’t become the Leftist woke paradise of Blinken’s imagining, the American money will still flow. Of course. It always does.

Blinken claimed risibly that henceforth, the America-Last administration of Biden’s handlers would be guided by a concern for something that has never appeared on its list of priorities up to now: “our vital national interests.” Yeah, sure, Tony. Pull my other leg. More plausibly, Blinken assured the world that despite the last few weeks of catastrophe and humiliation, the American taxpayers will still be filling their cars with $4-a-gallon gasoline and driving to their pathetic nine-to-fives so that the elites can demonstrate their concern for the people of Afghanistan: “If we can work in the new Afghan government in a way that helps secure those interests … and in a way that brings greater stability to the country and the region, and that protects the gains of the last two decades, we will do it.”

The gains of the last two decades? What were those? Blinken didn’t say. He was too busy promising the Taliban American money: “The United States will continue to support humanitarian aid to the Afghan people. Consistent with our sanctions on the Taliban, the aid will not flow through the government, but rather through independent organizations, such as U.N. agencies and [non-government organizations.] And, we expect that those efforts will not be impeded by the Taliban or anyone else.”

Of course the Taliban won’t impede the money flow. They’re much more likely to appropriate it. Just as UN agencies in Gaza are wholly compromised by Hamas, it strains credulity to think that UN will be able to operate freely and independently of the Taliban in Afghanistan, or will even try to do so. But in Antony Blinken’s blinkered world, the UN is an incorrupt and thoroughly uncorruptable organization, and so no American taxpayer should object to his or her or xer money going to UN outposts in the Taliban’s Afghanistan. Really, what could possibly go wrong?

Blinken demonstrated his lack of acquaintance with reality yet again when he explained that if the Taliban wanted international approval, it would have to become a Leftist nanny state like the U.S. and its allies, all concerned with diversity and inclusiveness: “The Taliban seeks international legitimacy and support. Our message is: any legitimacy and any support will have to be earned.”

Is that right? And exactly what leverage do you have on the Taliban if they don’t earn it, Mr. Secretary?

There is more. Read the rest here.

Mother Loses Custody Because She’s Unvaccinated

America is dead. If this isn’t an obvious casus belli, then we are already gone.

Mother Loses Parental Rights Because She’s Unvaccinated

So many people in this world have lost their humanity during COVID-19 hysteria.

By: We Love Trump, August 30, 2021:

Politicians became drunk with power and now use an experimental injection as a tool to ruin people’s lives.

A Cook County judge committed one of the most heinous acts I’ve seen during the past 20 months.

He stole a child from their mother.

Because a Chicago mother hasn’t received an experimental COVID-19 jab, he took her parental rights.

Watch below:

This judge has lost his mind and set a horrifying precedent.

What if other wicked judges attempt these same shenanigans?

Unvaccinated parents now have the fear of the state stealing their children if they choose medical freedom.

It’s also insanity that the father and his attorney agree with the judge’s decision.

I know the father is fighting for custody and parental rights like the mother, but requiring any parent to participate in a medical experiment to see their child is disgusting.

The father and his attorney should be ashamed for not condemning this monster.

It’s pure Marxism!

FOX 32 Chicago reported:

In what all parties agree is a very unusual and perhaps unprecedented step, a judge at Chicago’s Daley Center has stripped Rebecca Firlit of custody because she refuses to get a vaccination shot.

“I miss my son more than anything. It’s been very difficult. I haven’t seen him since August 10th,” Firlit told FOX 32 News in an exclusive interview.

That’s the day Firlit appeared in court via Zoom along with her ex-husband for a child support hearing involving their 11-year-old son. The two have been divorced for seven years and share custody and parenting time.

She says out of the blue, Cook County Judge James Shapiro asked her whether she had been vaccinated. Firlit told Shapiro she had not because she has had bad reactions to vaccines in the past.

Shapiro then ordered that Firlit be stripped of all parenting time with her son until she gets vaccinated.

Oiver the past two weeks, Firlit has been able to talk to her son on the phone and through video calls, but has not seen him in person.

“I think that it’s wrong. I think that it’s dividing families. And I think it’s not in my son’s best interest to be away from his mother,” Firlit said.

Firlit is now appealing the court order, saying the judge has no business taking away her parenting rights simply because she’s not vaccinated.

“It had nothing to do with what we were talking about. He was placing his views on me. And taking my son away from me,” Firlit said.

Annette Fernholz, Firlit’s attorney, says the judge has overstepped his authority.

“In this case you have a judge, without any matter before him regarding the parenting time with the child deciding ‘Oh, you’re not vaccinated. You don’t get to see your child until you are vaccinated.’ That kind of exceeds his jurisdiction,” Fernholz said.

“You have to understand the father did not even bring this issue before the court. So it’s the judge on his own and making this decision that you can’t see your child until you’re vaccinated,” Fernholz added.

The attorney representing the father, Jeffrey Leving, says they were also surprised by the judge’s decision, but they support the ruling saying that given the pandemic, the child should be protected from an unvaccinated mother.

Judge James Shapiro is a devil who’s on a power trip.

And I wouldn’t be surprised if other judges attempt similar actions.

Parents, protect your children from these demons.

Biden’s Catastrophic Policies: Immigration and Afghanistan [+Video]

Shocking and dangerous parallels.


Nearly twenty years ago, on September 11, 2001 ago radical Islamist terrorists conducted the deadliest terror attacks ever carried out on American soil, in the history of our nation.

The administration of President George W. Bush, in response to the terror attacks, working with America’s allies sent the military to the Middle East to hunt down those responsible for the deadly attacks and to deprive al-Qaeda and other terror organization with sanctuaries from which they could launch terror attacks in the United States and other countries around the world.

Afghanistan was considered a key to our military operations.

President George W. Bush and then President Obama both justified the use of our military forces overseas by declaring that we were fighting the terrorists “over there” so that we would not have to fight them “over here.”

I took issue with that absurd statement in an article I wrote several years ago, Fighting The War On Terror Here, There And Everywhere.

We will delve into the issue of how the war on terror needed to be pursued domestically as well as overseas shortly.  (Think immigration law enforcement.)

But first, the disastrous strategic decisions of President Joe Biden to pull our troops out of Afghanistan have reverberated around the world.

Our allies fear that America can not be trusted and has no resolve to stand up and our nation’s enemies are greatly encouraged by Biden’s lack of resolve.  There is a fundamental principle that states that negotiations should never be conducted from a position of weakness but from a position of strength, however Joe and his policies could not be weaker.

The issue is not that Biden ordered our troops out of Afghanistan, there are many, including former President Trump, who believe that the time has come for American forces to be removed from Afghanistan.

The issue is how Biden ordered the removal of troops to be conducted- he got the sequence of the evacuation ass-backwards!

At the pistol range the orders are, Ready- Aim- Fire.

In essence, Biden’s orders were Fire- Ready- Aim!

Sky divers are instructed to pull their ripcords BEFORE they hit the ground.

Biden would have instructed them to pull the ripcord AFTER impact!

Biden did not consult with America’s allies including NATO even though there are NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Biden ordered our troops to abandon Kandahar International Airport, literally in the dead of night without even notifying Afghan troops who were fighting alongside American soldiers.

Biden evacuated the soldiers before he evacuated American civilians or the Afghanis who had worked with our military and our government are were, consequently at mortal risk.

This sets up a very real possibility of Americans and allies being taken hostage by the terrorists.

Biden evacuated the military before removing or destroying a huge arsenal of military hardware and weaponry so that terrorists would have access to these weapons.

Under federal law, anyone who provides weapons or items of potential military use to certain prohibited countries is subject to criminal prosecution that carries severe penalties.  The 19 hijackers who carried out the terror attacks of 9/11 wielded boxcutters.  Imagine what terrorists who could gain access to a huge arsenal could do!

Finally, he left thousands of terrorists in prisons at Kandahar and elsewhere who were promptly released by the Taliban.

How many U.S. or allied soldiers died or were seriously injured in operations to capture of these highly dangerous terrorists?  Now that they are free, they will once again pose a threat, not only to the citizens of Afghanistan but to countries around the world, including the United States of America.

If you thought “Catch & Release” only applied to the Border Patrol, Biden has allowed that dangerous practice to metastasize to our military operations in what is one of the most dangerous places on earth!

Having mentioned the Border Patrol we now need to turn our attention to the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony.

That commission ultimately determined that those terror attacks were facilitated and, indeed, made possible, by multiple failures of the immigration system.

In the wake of the terror attacks of 9/11 I have testified before numerous hearings conducted in the House and Senate about failures of the immigration system that undermine national security and public safety.

On May 5, 2010 I testified at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims on the topic: New ”Dual Missions” Of The Immigration Enforcement Agencies.

Back then the chairman of that important subcommittee was Republican Congressman John Hostettler from Indiana who was extremely critical of the way that President George W. Bush failed to follow the guidelines established by the Homeland Security Act to create the DHS (Department of Homeland Security).  Hostettler’s prepared remarks included this paragraph that succinctly laid out just how critical immigration law enforcement is to protecting the United States from international terrorists and is worth considering today:

The 9/11 terrorists all came to the United States without weapons or contraband—Added customs enforcement would not have stopped 9/11 from happening. What might have foiled al Qaeda’s plan was additional immigration focus, vetting and enforcement. And so what is needed is recognition that, one, immigration is a very important national security issue that cannot take a back seat to customs or agriculture. Two, immigration is a very complex issue, and immigration enforcement agencies need experts in immigration enforcement. And three, the leadership of our immigration agencies should be shielded from political pressures to act in a way which could compromise the Nation’s security.

The frustration and consternation of Chairman Hostettler was absolutely justified, yet our political leaders from both parties refused to take commonsense measures needed to protect America and Americans.

President Trump was the only president to accept the critical nature of America’s borders and immigration laws and act accordingly.

In my view, as a result of his efforts to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws, came under fire in unprecedented ways.

For decades immigration law enforcement was hobbled by a policy of “Catch & Release” whereby illegal aliens who were arrested by the Border Patrol were promptly released from custody.  Only a very small percentage ever showed up for their hearings.  What was never discussed publicly was that the  lunacy of Catch & Release also included the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.

On March 10, 2005 the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims conducted a hearing on Interior Immigration Enforcement Resources.  I testified at that hearing.

I urge you to read the transcript of that entire hearing and that you pay particular attention to the prepared statement of no other than Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who, in criticizing President Bush for not providing necessary resources stated, in part:

The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement merged the investigative function of the former Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Customs Service, the INS detention and removal functions, most of the INS intelligence operation, the Federal Protective Service, and the Federal Air Marshals Service. ICE’s areas of responsibility include the enforcement of laws dealing with the presence and activities of terrorists, human trafficking, commercial alien smuggling operations, document fraud, and drug trafficking, and many important aspects of their work have been successful.

Just recently, for example, we were able to applaud Operation Predator, which was able to bring in 5,000 arrests since 2003 on the question of those who are non-citizens who have come into this country and who have been predators against our children.

Also, for instance, ICE investigators conducted an 8-month investigation last year of two men who were selling false identity documents to members of terrorist organizations. The ICE investigators developed such a strong case against these individuals that they pleaded guilty on February 28, 2005, to a charge of involvement in a conspiracy to sell false documents to purported members of Abu Sayyaf, a Philippines-based group that has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization.

The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 authorized 800 new ICE investigators for FY 2006 through FY 2010. The President’s budget only requests funding for 143 new ICE investigators for FY 2006, which is only 17 percent of the authorized number. We need all of the 800 additional ICE investigators authorized by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act.

And with a little lightness, Mr. Chairman, maybe the Administration was simply trying to tease us, to egg us on, to see if we had the stomach to do what is right, and that means that we need to fully fund the 800 additional ICE investigators. Let’s take the bait, if you will, accept the challenge, and do what we need to do.

The National Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act also authorized 8,000 new detention beds each year from FY 2006 through 2010. The President, however, has requested funding for 1,920 beds for FY 2006, which is only 24 percent of the authorized number. Mr. Chairman, I know that you are headed to the border, at least a portion thereof. I have spent some time at the border with Congressman Ortiz. I saw what the need was and the crisis—hard-working men and women who understand the needs of securing the border, but more importantly, understanding the needs of retaining those who have entered this country illegally. They cannot do their job without the full funding of these detention beds and the recognition that, in fact, we have a responsibility to provide them with the necessary resources.

Whatever happened to Sheila and her Democrat friends since that hearing?

Clearly she very well understands the perils we face because of systemic failures of the immigration system.

Even after the terror attacks of 9/11 increasing numbers of cities and even some states declared themselves to be “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens and among them criminal aliens and terrorists, in directly contradiction to the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

Now Biden’s immigration policies have turned America into a Sanctuary Country for illegal aliens and Afghanistan into a Sanctuary for terrorists who seek the destruction of the United States and our allies.

The title of my recent article will serve as my summation today, Biden Ends War On Radical Islamist Terrorists ‘Over Here’ and ‘Over There’  Too bad the terrorists aren’t calling it quits.

Wisconsin Lost 83,000 Ballots in State Biden “Won” by 20,000

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) said on Friday that 82,766 mail ballots sent to voters in Wisconsin’s November 2020 presidential election “went missing or undeliverable,” a number more than four times greater than Joe Biden’s 20,682 vote certified margin of victory in the state.

More than 1.6 million votes were cast in the November 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin, and Biden’s certified margin of victory was just 1.2 percent of all votes cast.

“83K mail ballots went missing or undeliverable amid 20k vote margin of victory in WI 2020 Presidential,” the headline read in a statement that accompanied the release of a report by PILF on Friday morning.

“We now know the cost of the rush to mail balloting – lost ballots. The federal data show the 2020 election had more mail ballots that were never counted than the margin of victory in the Presidential election in Wisconsin. This isn’t the way to run an election. Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. Post Office determining the outcome of elections,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in the statement.

The report showed that, unlike the results of the 2012 and 2016, the number of “missing or undeliverable” mail ballots in 2020 exceeded the margin of victory in the election to determine which presidential candidate would be awarded the state’s ten electoral college votes.

Wisconsin Lost Track of 82,000 Ballots in State Biden Won by 20,000

By: Martin Walsh, Conservative Brief, August 30, 2021:

Wisconsin “lost track” of roughly 82,000 mail-in ballots in the state in the 2020 presidential election, the Daily Signal reported.

Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump by 20,682 votes in Wisconsin last November.

Wisconsin losing track of more than 82,000 mail-in ballots in the state represents more than four times the margin of difference between Biden and Trump, according to a report from the nonprofit Public Interest Legal Foundation.

The Daily Signal reports:

Joe Biden defeated then-President Donald Trump by 20,682 votes in Wisconsin in the November presidential election. However, according to the legal foundation’s report, 82,766 mail-in ballots in the state were either undeliverable or suffered an unknown fate.

A further breakdown by the legal group shows that 1.4 million ballots were sent by mail. Of those, 6,458 were undeliverable. An additional 2,981 mail-in ballots were rejected. The vast majority, 76,308, met an “unknown” fate.

“The federal data show the 2020 election had more mail ballots that were never counted than the margin of victory in the presidential election in Wisconsin,” J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a statement.

“This isn’t the way to run an election,” said Adams, a former Justice Department lawyer in the Voting Section. “Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. post office determining the outcome of elections.”

An election integrity group alleges that their investigation into the 2020 election identified over 157,000 illegally cast ballots in Wisconsin.

Matt Braynard, who leads the group Looking Ahead America Research, argues in their report that they’ve located more than enough illegally cast ballots to establish “beyond a reasonable doubt that the deserved winner of Wisconsin is unknowable.”

The Election Wiz summarized some of the main findings in the report:

Last fall, roughly 240,000 voters in Wisconsin said they were indefinitely confined, nearly a four-fold increase from the 2016 election.

Of that number, over 169,000 claimed the indefinitely confined status for the first time.

In a victory for the Trump campaign last December, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled election officials were wrong to suggest voters could claim the status of “indefinitely confined” based on the Covid pandemic.

Following the November election, LAA took up the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s challenge.

Researchers used a randomized sample of voters who claimed the confinement status for the first time in 2020.

Teachers Union: ‘It’s OK’ That Kids Don’t Know Math. ‘They Know The Words Insurrection and Coup’

This is the very definition of ‘insurrection’ and ‘coup’. The teachers unions are a grave threat to pour children. The union must be dismantled.

Teachers Union: ‘It’s OK’ That Kids Don’t Know Math, ‘They Know The Words Insurrection and Coup’

By Luke Rosiak • Daily Wire Aug 30, 2021 •

The head of the Los Angeles teachers union said “there is no such thing as learning loss,” despite evidence of massive educational declines due to a year of remote learning.

Cecily Myart-Cruz, president of United Teachers Los Angeles, told LA Magazine that “It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words insurrection and coup.”

When schools shut down in early 2020 due to coronavirus, the union demanded that teachers not have to teach remotely for more than four hours a day, despite receiving pay for a full day. Teachers often simply posted assignments that students were expected to download and complete on their own.

Nearly two-thirds of students largely ignored this version of school, and almost none of the district’s 229,000 elementary school students logged on at all, LA Magazine reported.

Staying at home has also made children fat, which is one of the main risk factors for coronavirus.

In calling for schools to be closed completely last school year, the union focused more on far-left politics, writing that “The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States underscores the deep equity and justice challenges arising from our profoundly racist, intensely unequal society.”

They demanded to “defund police,” make housing a human right, and institute a moratorium on charter schools, which are popular with racial minorities but which the union said could “drain resources” from the union members’ employer.

The superintendent, Austin Beutner, quit on June 30, writing in his resignation letter that “UTLA leadership were asked to consider all the different ways to [return to classrooms] with full pay… They would not agree to any of these.”

Parents filed lawsuits (one alleged that “UTLA and its president Cecily Myart-Cruz have held the current well-being and future prospects of LAUSD students hostage”) and demanded the recall of school board members.

But Myart-Cruz gloated: “You can recall the Governor. You can recall the school board. But how are you going to recall me?”

As students languished, Myart-Cruz pushed for a property tax hike, which was rejected by voters. When Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom offered $2 billion in extra funding for schools that opened by April 2021 — which presumably would address the same funding needs underlying a property tax hike — Myart-Cruz rejected the offer, saying too much of the money would go to “white and wealthier schools.”

As remote learning widened the racial gap when it came to academic performance, Myart-Cruz insisted that calls to provide school to children were racist.

She claimed she was being “stalked by wealthy, white, Middle Eastern parents.” A UTLA staff member contacted one parent, Maryam Qudrat, who wanted her child to at least receive more hours of Zoom classes, asking “pointed questions about her racial background,” LA Magazine reported.

For the school year beginning this month — the third school year affected by coronavirus — the union insisted on a virtual option for those who want it, which experts believe will be used largely by blacks and Latinos and which clearly leads to worse academic results than in-person learning.

Even within the union, Myart-Cruz’s claim to a mandate is thin: only 16 percent of the union’s 33,000 members voted in its 2020 officers election.

Yet the teachers union is astonishingly powerful. Its electoral efforts in ordinarily low-turnout races make politicians afraid to cross it. Voters have elected union officials as school board members, including Myart-Cruz’s romantic partner, who is an Oakland school board member.

In the first quarter of this year, the California Teachers Association, the UTLA’s statewide affiliate, spent $2.85 million on lobbying, more than twice as much as the second- and third-biggest special interests, which were both oil companies.

The magazine quoted a former school official who refused to give his name because he was “scared” of the union. “UTLA is not a normal union,” he said.
