CONSEQUENCES OF BIDEN’S WITHDRAWAL FROM AFGHANISTAN

Sunday, September 12th, 2021

 

Colonel Richard Kemp, Former UK Commander in Afghanistan: Biden ‘Should Be Court-Martialed For Betraying’ U.S. and U.S. Armed Forces

By Michael W. Chapman | August 23, 2021

In a very candid interview with conservative Mark Levin on Sunday, the former commander of British troops in Afghanistan, Colonel Richard Kemp, said that President Joe Biden had single-handedly destroyed NATO’s credibility and had betrayed the United States and the U.S. military, for which he “should be court-martialed.”

“In my opinion, and I don’t say this lightly, and I’ve never said it about anybody else, any other leader in this position, people have been talking about impeaching President Biden,” said Col. Kemp on FNC’s Life, Liberty & Levin.

“I don’t believe President Biden should be impeached,” he added.  “He’s the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, who’s just essentially surrendered to the Taliban. He shouldn’t be impeached; he should be court-martialed for betraying the United States of America and the United States Armed Forces.”

Colonel Kemp was an infantry battalion commanding officer and he headed Operation Fingal in Afghanistan in 2003. Kemp also served in the Iraq war, the Bosnian war, the Gulf war, and in battles against terrorists in Northern Ireland (Operation Banner).  He was awarded the Commander of the Order of the British Empire and the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery.

During the Aug. 22 interview, Levin asked, “Colonel Kemp, my question to you is, given what has taken place now in Afghanistan, and it’s ongoing, and assuming that Joe Biden stays on the same course, what are consequences for the United States, Britain, NATO, the free world, and that area of the world now?”

Kemp replied, “I think the consequences of what has just happened and what’s still happening are absolutely devastating for the whole of the Western world. I mentioned earlier that the catastrophic effect on NATO. NATO is a very important military alliance.”

BIDEN HAD OPTIONS IN AFGHANISTAN

Thursday, September 9th, 2021

 

President Biden had options

August 23, 2021   By Clifford D. May      Clifford D. May is founder and president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) and a columnist for the Washington Times. Follow him on Twitter @CliffordDMay. FDD is a nonpartisan think tank focused on foreign policy and national security issues.

You don’t need to be a brilliant geopolitical strategist to understand that the United States should be the best friend – and the worst enemy – any nation could have. Following the events of recent days, the U.S. will be perceived differently: “harmless as an enemy but treacherous as a friend.”

Many politicians and diplomats share blame for this outcome, as do those deep thinkers who fancy themselves proponents of “responsible statecraft,” based on the dangerous fiction that “forever wars” end once Americans stop fighting them.

But since the buck stops in the Oval Office, history will most vividly remember the terrible decisions President Biden made in the months leading up to the 20th anniversary of the most catastrophic terrorist attacks ever on American soil.

The commander in chief had options. None were good. Least bad would have been to continue to frustrate the ambitions of the Taliban and al Qaeda, which also would have ensured that Afghans in Kabul and other cities would retain a measure of freedom and security. That would have required leaving a small residual force in Afghanistan, a force that would train, advise, and assist – not engage in direct ground combat.

Say it’s 2014 and you’ve had this idea for a technocratic Great Reset of the world economy for some time now, but it only works if the entire planet is rocked by a pandemic. How do you go about selling your idea?

THE SCALE OF HUMILIATION – MARK STEYN

The Scale of Humiliation

August 15, 2021  by Mark Steyn
The Fall of Kabul

To reprise a line from a decade-old column of mine:

Afghanistan is about Afghanistan – if you’re Afghan or Pakistani. But, if you’re Russian or Chinese or Iranian or European, Afghanistan is about America.

That’s the point to remember: if you’re an Afghan schoolgirl, today is the fall of Kabul; elsewhere, in the chancelleries of allies and enemies alike, it’s the fall of America. Even by their usual wretched standards, the world’s most somnolent media are struggling to stay up to speed on the story. Here’s the scoop from USA Today:

Taliban’s Afghanistan Advance Tests Biden’s ‘America Is Back’ Foreign Policy Promise

You don’t say! Did he misread the prompter, or mishear the guy in his ear? “America is on its back”, surely?

But don’t worry, the world’s most lavishly over-funded “intelligence community” is on the case:

Kabul Could Fall To The Taliban Within 90 Days, U.S. Intelligence Warns

Thank you, geniuses. That was Thursday. So it turned out to be well within ninety hours – which is close enough for US intelligence work.

Was this the same “seventeen intelligence agencies” who all agreed Russia had meddled in the 2016 election – and with whose collective intelligence only a fool would disagree?

THIS IS 1938 – FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE UNVACCINATED

Monday, August 9th, 2021

 

This Is 1938: First, They Came for the Unvaccinated

By Wayne Allyn Root   August 8, 2021

This is the most important commentary I’ve ever written.

It’s time for alarm bells. It’s time for me to play the part of Paul Revere: “The communist tyrants and dictators are coming! The communist tyrants and dictators are coming!” They’re coming first for unvaccinated Americans.

This is 1938. I’m a Jew. I now understand just a little of what it felt like to be a Jew in 1938. No, it’s not the Holocaust. Nothing can be compared to the Holocaust. Ever.

But 1938 was not the Holocaust. It was the pre-Holocaust. It was the time before the nightmare, when the foundation was being laid to destroy the freedom, free speech, businesses and lives of millions of Jews.

Everything happening today to the American people … to the U.S. Constitution … to freedom … and particularly to unvaccinated Americans reminds me of 1938. This is only the beginning. It gets much worse from here.

First, “the papers.” Vaccine mandates and vaccine passports are just like 1938, when the Gestapo demanded papers from every German.

VIDEO – CARING FOR THE FALLEN

Monday, June 7th, 2021
Today, June 6, D Day, is remembered as the turning point of the Second World War.  Many lives were lost that day and this video shows the very caring way the American Battle Monument Commission has painstakingly  cared for the fallen of all our wars that were fought overseas.   Nancy  

Below is a link of a 12 minute reportage of what they do for the fallen primarily in Europe and also in Africa and the Philippines. 


The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) was created in 1923 to commemorate the service and sacrifice of the U.S. Armed Forces. More than 200,000 American fallen and Missing in Action (MIA) are interred and honored at our cemeteries and memorials. ABMC is proud to bring you a series of brand new videos that highlight the beauty, sanctity and serenity of our sites. Whether you have visited an ABMC cemetery or want to, we hope you will enjoy this introduction to our cemeteries and how the fallen are honored every day. Together, let’s remember our fallen service men and women’s sacrifice. #ReDiscoverABMC The American Battle Monuments Commission honors America’s fallen service members and their stories at 26 overseas cemeteries and 31 monuments. www.abmc.gov #WeRemember #service #USmilitary #WWI #WWII #history #education #Americanhistory

OUR INCREASINGLY UNRECOGNIZABLE CIVILIZATION BY MARK STEYN

Saturday, May 29th, 2021

Our Increasingly Unrecognizable Civilization

April/May 2021   by Mark Steyn
Mark Steyn, host of The Mark Steyn Show, writes regularly at steynonline.com and has contributed to numerous publications, including the Daily TelegraphThe Irish TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Jerusalem Post. He is the author of several books, including Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech, and The Twilight of the WestAmerica Alone: The End of the World As We Know It, and The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. A frequent guest host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, he was for 15 years a guest host of The Rush Limbaugh Show. His albums include Making Spirits Bright, with Jessica Martin, and Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin’ Cats. From 2008 to 2013, he was a Eugene C. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Journalism at Hillsdale College.

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on April 26, 2021, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Franklin, Tennessee.

I live about 20 minutes south of the Canadian border, which used to be called the longest undefended frontier in the world. People moved freely back and forth across it all day every day. But now it’s been closed for over a year. At one point my daughter asked me to drive her up there, because there was a 30-minute opportunity for people on one side to talk to their friends on the other. “Sad!” as President Trump would say. It was like Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin during the Cold War, except that both sides are now like East Berlin. 

I don’t know how this happened, but it is just one indication that America, and the West in general, have become almost unrecognizable from what they were not that long ago.

Look at just three things we have lost. 

One is equality before the law, something absolutely essential to a free society. In its place, we now have politicized law. If a policeman fatally shoots someone, whether his name is released to the public depends on whether the shooting is consistent with the preferred narrative of the ruling class. A policeman recently took down a young woman who was threatening the life of another young woman with a knife, and that policeman was immediately identified—indeed, his photo was posted and he was threatened by NBA superstar LeBron James on Twitter. On the other hand, we know nothing of the policeman who shot dead an unarmed woman in the U.S. Capitol on January 6. His name will apparently never be released to the public.

Second, border control. Functioning societies, at least since the Peace of Westphalia three centuries ago, have borders. America has no southern border and no plans to get one. The official position of our government seems to be that any of the seven billion persons on this planet has a right to come and stay in the U.S. for three years, until his or her assigned court date comes up. As the number of people with pending cases continues to grow, that three years will extend out to five or seven or 15 years. If we get all seven billion people to come here, the court system will break down entirely and maybe we can go back to having a functioning border.

And third, dare I bring up the fact that it is a real question whether we can go back to agreeing to have open and honest elections? And if we don’t have open and honest elections, control of our borders, and equality before the law, then we don’t have the conditions for politics or free government.
