Afghanistan Nightmare

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2021 by andelino

The Afghanistan nightmare continues to haunt us all. It has caused many of us to experience new heights of disbelief and anger. But imagine watching events in Afghanistan as a member of America’s military.

For 20 years, the Taliban, a ragtag collection of roughly 75,000 genocidal sand hill terrorists, was the sworn enemy. More than $2 trillion has been spent fighting Islamist terrorists in Afghanistan since 2001. Nearly 2,500 soldiers have been killed in action, and over 20,000 wounded.

Over the past two decades, more than 800,000 military personnel have served in Afghanistan, many experiencing tremendous pain and sacrifice. The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that up to 20 percent of veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Now imagine being a veteran and seeing two decades of blood, toil, tears and sweat unravel in less than two weeks.

Imagine watching video of Taliban barbarians parading through the streets of Kandahar wearing your fatigues, driving your Humvees, flying your Black Hawk helicopters, carrying your M-16 assaults rifles. Imagine watching giddy terrorists in Kabul drape your flag over coffins in mock funerals.

Imagine watching your government simply hand over to the Taliban $85 billion worth of the most powerful and sophisticated military equipment in the world—hardware and weapons created to give you the advantage and confidence on the battlefield.

Imagine learning that Biden officials just directed federal agencies to erase their websites of official reports and audits documenting how much military equipment America gave to Afghanistan that is now in the hands of the Taliban.

Imagine receiving phone calls or texts from friends in Afghanistan, from Afghan translators and interpreters, and hearing their terrified, hopeless pleas as the Taliban moves door-to-door torturing, raping and executing anyone who supported America.

Imagine learning that, on its way out, your government gave the Taliban a kill list of American citizens, green-card holders and Afghan allies still in the country.

Imagine being a soldier and learning about the irrational decision to slip out of the Bagram Air Base in the middle of the night, and the strategically horrendous decision to evacuate tens of thousands from the airport in urban Kabul.

Imagine watching caskets draped in the U.S. flag, holding the disfigured corpses of American soldiers, being carried from the hold of a C-17 Globemaster plane, and seeing America’s droopy president repeatedly check his watch.

Imagine learning that the request to read in Congress the names of the 13 U.S. soldiers killed in Kabul was denied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Imagine watching the viral video of Lt. Col. Stuart P. Scheller Jr. passionately articulate his “growing discontent and contempt” with military leadership and the total “ineptitude at the foreign-policy level,” and then learning that Scheller was subsequently demoted, then driven to retirement.

Imagine having friends and family who were interrogated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, even persecuted and jailed, for attending the January 6 political rally in Washington, D.C., but then seeing America’s president walk away scot-free from America’s greatest military blunder ever.

Imagine hearing the Biden administration call the Taliban a trustworthy ally in Afghanistan specifically against ISIS-K.

For those of us not in the military, it’s probably hard to fully comprehend the fury and despair coursing through America’s armed forces.

Not with the Taliban but with America’s government—with “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden and figures like Mark Milley, Lloyd Austin and Antony Blinken. The steady flow of irrational, self-destructive and deadly decisions and policies coming from the upper echelons must be deeply infuriating and demoralizing.

What do you do with these emotions? What are your options?

The military operates on a chain-of-command system of government. Orders made at the top flow through the chain of command and are carried out by soldiers at the bottom. Orders are executed quickly and exactly, and without questions. This form of government is absolutely crucial, and it works well. But chain of command operates on trust, confidence and obedience.

Afghanistan absolutely demolished the trust and confidence many of America’s soldiers have in their top leaders, especially the commander in chief. It’s not just the fatal decisions, it’s the lies and deception, the double-talk, the blatant refusal to accept responsibility. “Fraud-In-Chief”  Biden called Afghanistan an “extraordinary success.”

Sure, it was—for the Taliban.

It is hard to appreciate how difficult this moment is for America’s veterans. What happens when a soldier’s faith and confidence in his superiors vanishes? When there’s little to no trust and confidence in those above you, it is much harder to obey—to carry out your orders. To do your job.

Afghanistan will thrust some into an existential crisis. This crisis has exposed many of America’s top military leaders, not just as ignorant or weak-willed—but as active members of the radical left. What do you do when you begin to realize that the men at the top are corrupt, that they actively support Barack Obama’s goal to fundamentally transform the America you serve and love?

These are some of the questions U.S. soldiers are wrestling with. In the weeks and months ahead, we’ll see how they answer them. Some will no doubt go along with the radical overhaul of the military. Some will accept, perhaps begrudgingly, the military’s embrace of Communist principles and political correctness, the focus on racial and gender equality.

But many, at least at some point, will begin to resist. For some, resistance will mean departure. Expect retirement figures to skyrocket.

But there is another option. This option will appeal to the patriotic veteran, to the serviceman alarmed about the direction of his government and his country. This option is ideally suited to veterans charged with emotions of frustration, fury and despair.

Some might call it a military uprising or coup. But these terms imply unconstitutional or lawless action or movement. Veterans who would support some sort of military resistance against the radical left would argue that they are defending America. They would say that they are protecting America’s Constitution, protecting its Judeo-Christian heritage, protecting law and order. Would they be wrong?

Veterans and active-duty servicemen are among the most patriotic Americans you will find. Many joined the military because they had a strong sense of duty to their nation. They wanted to protect America. At what point will some veterans consider it their duty to protect America by actively resisting the U.S. government and its war on traditional America?

It takes some imagination to see a modern superpower like America experiencing some sort of military uprising. But think, this time last year it was hard to imagine what happened with the national election. America today is in uncharted territory, politically, economically, socially, culturally and militarily. We need to be ready for anything.

How many veterans have the same view as Ross Schambon, a former sniper who served in Afghanistan? Talking about the Biden administration, he said recently, “They just kind of lay down. They’re laying down for everything. Whereas the previous president, he actually had a backbone.”

More than 90 retired generals, admirals and military officers signed a letter demanding the resignation of Joe Biden’s top military and defense officials, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It’s hard to see Biden firing these men, which raises the question ”how far are these retired military leaders willing to go to see their demands met?”

All across America—in state and local elections, on Twitter, in school board meetings, in TikTok videos—we see evidence of a rising dissatisfaction and resentment for “Fraud-In-Chief” Biden and the radical left. Chase bank—following a nationwide backlash—sent a letter to retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn apologizing for canceling his credit cards and bank accounts.

A spirit of resistance and revolt is swelling across America—and in America’s military.

Just imagine you are part of America’s armed forces right now. Who would you prefer to serve, and who do you think is more interested in your safety and in protecting and preserving your America “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden and the radical left, or Donald Trump?

Your legal vote at the polling places will determine the future of America.

Apology Tours are Back

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 13, 2021 by andelino

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a cable on July 23 to all U.S. embassies around the world directing ambassadors to promote a negative view of American history and society. They should, he said, make promoting democratic and human rights a priority, but while doing so acknowledge how imperfect America is with human rights.

Politico obtained the lengthy document and reported that Blinken believes openly discussing how awful America has been with human rights will strengthen their platform to effect change. Politico wrote:

In promoting human rights and democracy abroad, U.S. diplomats should make “clear that we ask no more of other countries than we ask of ourselves,” Blinken states. “That means we acknowledge our imperfections. We don’t sweep them under the rug. We confront them openly and transparently.”

It might be “painful, even ugly,” but Blinken argues that such honesty “helps disarm critics and skeptics who would use our imperfect record at home to undercut our global leadership on these issues.”

What effect will “open” and “honest” policy have on the moral authority America has in the world? Politico wrote:

Blinken notes that democracy as a concept faces challenges worldwide from populist and authoritarian forces. The United States hasn’t escaped that trend, thanks to “political polarization, disinformation and misinformation, and low levels of trust in government.” Neither has it been immune to human rights failures, with too many Americans still facing discrimination on multiple fronts.

Blinken actually is correct: America is facing a lot of misinformation, disinformation, threats from authoritarianism, and discrimination. But these abuses are coming from the Biden administration. Blinken is making sure the entire world knows how terrible of a nation America is and has been. He is essentially exporting the self-loathing principles of critical race theory as a foreign-policy dialogue.

Ever since being confirmed as secretary of state, Blinken has clearly trumpeted the return of Barack Obama’s foreign policy. The policy of apology and weakness is back.

In a June 1 New York Times interview, Barack Obama said, “I think that what we’re seeing now, is Joe and the administration are essentially finishing the job.” The Biden administration is the third term of Obama’s administration, continuing and actually intensifying the same policies.

Blinken was the deputy national security adviser and the deputy secretary of state under John Kerry in the Obama years; he also worked with the Clinton administration and directly for Joe Biden in the Senate. Blinken was involved in some of the worst foreign-policy decisions in American history, which include the Iran nuclear deal, the Cuba deal and America’s response to the Arab Spring. That legacy continues under his tenure.

In the first high-profile meetings between the United States and China in March, Blinken was confronted by Chinese officials accusing the U.S. of human rights abuses that were worse than China’s.

Stacey Lennox at PJ Media wrote: Blinken let the government that holds Uyghur Muslims in concentration camps, where they harvest organs, forcibly sterilize women, and force people to work in slave labor situations, make a fool of him.   

“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is raiding news organizations in Hong Kong and has disappeared dissidents from the city. The Wuhan lab has never been forthcoming about the origins of covid-19, which has ruined lives and sent vast numbers of people into abject poverty around the world. Yet when Blinken timidly mentioned the Communist regime’s human rights record, the delegation was having none of it. Somehow, the CCP suggested the United States is far worse because Democrat mayors let people riot all summer. It was unbelievable.”

Instead of creating a policy that refutes these ridiculous accusations by the Communist Chinese government, Blinken has created a policy for diplomats that agrees with these accusations. This was possibly the worst possible posturing for Blinken to take against one of America’s biggest international rivals.

Earlier this month, Blinken announced on Twitter that he is inviting the United Nations’ special rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism to the U.S. He did not specify what the goal of the visit would be, but the special rapporteur usually investigates racism in whatever country he or she visits. This is not historical racism, it is contemporary—racism occurring right now. PJ Media wrote:

The special rapporteur is Ms. E. Tendayi Achiume of Zambia. She’s part of the UN High Commission on Human Rights, a farcical committee whose current membership includes China, Cuba and Venezuela. China is currently running slave labor in concentration camps in Xinjiang and threatening its neighbors. Venezuela is a human rights and economic basket case thanks to its socialist government. Cuba is a dictatorship that arrested independent journalist Dina Stars live on the air while she was speaking with a journalist in Spain.

To add to the irony, Blinken made the announcement while Cuba was in the midst of protests against the dictatorship, waving American flags and calling for reform. But don’t worry: The same government that cracked down on the Cuban protesters will be involved in investigating racism in America.

Such weak policies have a terrible track record. Lennox wrote that the Obama “apology tours” will have some blow-back from Republicans and critics of the Biden administration.

Maybe Republicans attacked Obama because those apology tours lit the Middle East on fire and ended with our sailors kneeling for the Iranians? There’s not a chance the Mullahs would have pulled that during the Trump administration. Now, China may be bold enough to give it a try. Heck, the Iranians reportedly decided to grab a journalist here in the U.S. How did the Biden administration respond? By telling members of Congress that we would release the funds related to the oil embargo to the globe’s number one sponsor of terror.

These Biden administration officials are “finishing the job” of the Obama presidency. Its foreign policy lacks logic and undermines the security of the United States. This is the real Obama doctrine. What is behind these foreign-policy decisions?

This influence and attack reached a peak under the Obama administration. The irrational foreign policy led to a complete collapse of American power and influence abroad.

How much is the devil influencing America’s foreign policy today? Many people would scoff at such a question. But in looking at the decisions this administration is making, I’m hard-pressed to think of any that don’t have the effect of weakening America and strengthening the forces of evil in this world. Every decision they are making in foreign policy and just about everything else is dangerously wrong. And we need to prepare ourselves for more terrible decisions.

Is there any other explanation for why Barack Obama’s biggest foreign-policy “achievements” were deals with enemies of the United States? In his eight years in office, dictatorships flourished and the world became more unstable. The “Obama doctrine” was a carefully engineered policy to destroy America.

Many people can see that these are disastrous decisions. But we must understand that this isn’t simply the result of ineptitude on the part of this administration, or naivety about how the world really works. We are seeing the aftereffects of a calculated, aggressive, satanic attack aimed at weakening and ultimately destroying the world’s most powerful nation!

The irrational foreign policy of Obama is back stronger than ever, and we need to “prepare ourselves for more terrible decisions” from this current “dictator” administration.

Obama’s Fourth Reich

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2021 by andelino

Most of the coverage on the United States presidential transition between Donald Trump and Joe Biden has focused on Biden and Kamala Harris. But who are the others Biden is bringing to Washington?

Here are profiles of some of Biden’s top federal employees and nominees.

Secretary of State: Antony Blinken

Blinken and Biden go a long way back. When Biden was a senator, Blinken served as one of his closest advisers for six years. He later served as a member of Biden’s vice presidential staff. President Barack Obama made Blinken his deputy secretary of state in 2014; Biden has now given him the top job. According to the New York Times, Blinken was “an influential behind-the-scenes player in the negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program.” Despite this, and despite Iran’s recent expansion of its nuclear program, Blinken recently stated that America won’t renegotiate a deal until Iran goes back to its old obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal. Given how Tehran has undermined the provisions of the old deal since it went into force, this is unlikely.

Chief of Staff: Ron Klain

Klain is a longtime associate of Biden and a Democratic establishment figure. He worked for then Senator Biden in the 1980s. After that, he became chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore. Klain was Gore’s man in Florida during the 2000 election recount to monitor the situation there. Regarding the U.S. Supreme Court voting in favor of Bush, Klain said: “I am not over it. I don’t think I’ll ever be over it.” He later became Biden’s chief of staff, some suspected he would become Obama’s chief of staff eventually. According to NBC, during the 2020 election campaign, Klain and Biden talked “almost every single day.” The Washington Post often calls him a “fixer” for the Democratic Party (see here, here and here).

Director of National Intelligence: Avril Haines

Haines is Obama’s former deputy national security advisor and Central Intelligence Agency deputy director. She is very close with Obama’s former CIA director, John Brennan. She helped Brennan form Obama’s controversial drone strike policy. Before that, she worked for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when Biden was its chair. In 2014, a scandal occurred where CIA agents were accused of hacking into the computers of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The CIA inspector general recommended that the agents in question be disciplined. CIA Deputy Director Haines refused to follow through.

Secretary of Homeland Security: Alejandro Mayorkas

Formerly Obama’s deputy secretary of Homeland Security, Mayorkas was born in Cuba. His family fled the 1959 Cuban Revolution when he was a baby. He was, according to NBC, “instrumental in shaping” Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA was the Homeland Security immigration policy of deferring deportation to child illegal immigrants. The Washington Times called him “the architect of DACA.” He created it within 60 days of becoming Obama’s immigration head. He was also a member of Obama’s team sent to renew diplomatic relations with Cuba. On one trip to Cuba, he had a meeting with Cuba’s Ministry of Interior. Part of his discussions were about, according to the Washington Post, “aviation security, combating drug trafficking and cybersecurity.” The Post stated that Mayorkas said Washington and Havana hoped “to develop memorandums of understanding to increase cooperation in those and other areas.”

Secretary of Health and Human Services: Xavier Becerra

Becerra got his job as California’s attorney general when then Attorney General Kamala Harris won her Senate seat. He has little experience with the health-care industry. His pick as Health and Human Services secretary seems slightly surprising—until one learns he has a history of health-care activism. Becerra led the infamous arrests of activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for secretly recording Planned Parenthood workers discussing how much money the organization could make from selling body parts from aborted babies. He also sued the Catholic elderly care home provider Little Sisters of the Poor for refusing to comply with President Obama’s mandate that organizations provide contraceptives to their employees. He recently sued the Trump administration for opening up over a million acres in California for fracking. He claimed that it was to protect the health of nearby communities. The land in question is federal property.

National Security Advisor: Jake Sullivan

Sullivan was Biden’s former national security advisor as vice president. He will be the youngest national security advisor in nearly 60 years.” Sullivan was a longtime aide for Hillary Clinton; he was her staffer when she was Secretary of State. Another Clinton aide, Philippe Reines, said “he’s the only human being who went to 112 countries with Hillary Clinton.” He was Obama’s point man for the Iran nuclear deal. Sullivan was sent to secret meetings with the Iranian government in 2012, and he had several higher-profile meetings with Iran in 2014. He’s pretty eager to restart negotiations with Iran, even though Tehran has stated it isn’t interested in a new deal. Regarding Sullivan’s relationship with Klain, Reines says “no two people know each other better, have worked more closely, overlapped more, or have a better working relationship on day one than any chief of staff-national security advisor pair before them.”

Secretary of Defense: Lloyd Austin

Austin was in charge of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), the division of the U.S. military overseeing operations in the Middle East. Austin is, like many of Biden’s cabinet picks, an associate of his. He was in charge of the U.S. occupation of Iraq during the early Obama administration. Biden’s son Beau was one of the soldiers under Austin’s command, and the two got along well. Austin and Beau, both Catholics, “attended mass together and sat next to each other almost every Sunday,” according to the Washington Post. Biden wrote that Austin “played a crucial role in bringing 150,000 American troops home” in the 2011 withdrawal from Iraq. Because of the U.S. vacuum, the Islamic State terror group sprung up in Iraq. American troops were sucked back into the conflict zone as a result.

Noticing a pattern?

An incoming presidential administration often chooses many governors, senators, congressmen and other politicians for cabinet positions. Biden has very little of those. Instead, he’s been choosing all of his “old cronies” when he was vice president. People like Klain and Mayorkas generally aren’t “high-profile” elected officials. Rather, they’re longtime Biden and Democratic Party “insiders.”

These characters are the people behind the scenes who established many of Barack Obama’s hallmark policies, “disastrous policies” like the Iran nuclear deal and the withdrawal from Iraq. Even those who weren’t in Obama’s administration per se, like Becerra, have a track record of fighting for the same causes Obama did.

We’re basically seeing “Fraud-In-Chief” Biden “transplant” his vice presidential staff over to his presidential administration. But more than that, we’re seeing the “movers and shakers” of Obama’s cabinet being given the top jobs.

We’re seeing the “Fourth Reich” of Barack Obama.

In the above interview with Stephen Colbert, Obama said:

“People would ask me, Knowing what you know now, do you wish you had a third term? and I used to say, If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand in, a front man or front woman, and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, and then I could sort of deliver the lines, but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I’d be fine with that.”

This is the term Freddy Gray, editor of Spectator USA, used to describe a possible Joe Biden presidency. “Obama sounds a bit of a World King these days, but you can’t blame him for feeling chipper. He has his third book of memoirs out, he’s making millions through publishing and Netflix deals, his great nemesis Donald Trump appears finally to have been vanquished, and his gang is taking charge of Washington again.”

Barack Obama was pleased when Biden began announcing his selections for various positions in his administration. In a November 23 interview with Politico, he said, “You’re seeing a team develop that I have great confidence in.” Of course he has great confidence in them—“they’re his people!”

“In fact, the incoming Biden administration is arguably more Obamaish than the original Obama administration was,” Gray wrote. One Biden campaign staff member even told Politico, “The Obama staffers are now cutting out the people who got Biden elected.”

With all of Obama’s hidden middle-management occupying the top jobs, it’s as if we have a front man—“President Joebama”—sitting in the Oval Office right now.
