TALIBAN CAPTURED COMMUNICATION RADIOS WITH ENCRYPTION CODES INTACT

Sunday, September 19th, 2021

 

Thanks to Gadi Adelman for sharing this information on the weaponry and equipment that the U.S. very thoughtfully left for the Taliban. You just don’t think it could possibly get any worse, but then it does!  Nancy  

FTA:
A case in point involves sophisticated American communications gear. AND
Magazine has learned via its sources on the ground in Afghanistan that
the Taliban now have access to at least 20 U.S. Military SINCGARS radios
(Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-160).
SINCGARS is the primary Combat Net Radio (CNR) for the US Army. It is a
VHF-FM radio system that operates on any or all of the 2,320 frequencies
between 30 and 87.975 MHz in 25 kHz increments. SINCGARS employs
frequency hopping, as its primary means of communication in a hostile
environment. SINCGARS is also capable of processing both analog and
digital data in addition to handling voice communications.
AND sources indicated that when the radios were captured all of the
documentation concerning them was captured as well. None of the radios’
encryption was “wiped. That means what is known as the AES256 crypto
fill and the frequency-hopping Sync fill are still loaded into these radios.

THE MAKING OF A BANANA REPUBLIC

Friday, September 17th, 2021
Have you wondered exactly who is paying for all the illegals to travel to our southern border ? According to the following articles,  Catholic charities, (I used to be a Catholic) are paying the lion’s share of the cost.   Once they cross our border, it is us, the American taxpayer, who pays for their bus and plane fares around the country, food, clothing, and  hotels.  The costs don’t stop there as  we provide healthcare through medicaid, food stamps (SNAP),  and  all these children need to be educated at taxpayer expense.  Does it make your blood  boil?  It does mine !  Nancy

MARK STEYN – BUSH RE-ENTERS THE ROOM

Bush Re-Enters the Room

by Mark Steyn
Twenty Years On
September 13, 2021

The official observances for the twentieth anniversary managed to be even more wretched and grotesque than I’d expected – the most obvious affront being Bush’s equivalence between the perpetrators of 9/11 and the “perpetrators” of 1/6: They were both “children of the same foul spirit”, he declared, diminishing the three thousand victims of the former by comparing them to a congressman who had to hide in the stationery cupboard because some goofball was taking selfies with his feet up on the desk.

Twenty years ago, the forty-third president’s entire executive branch totally failed the nation. Sample quote from page 184 of America Alone:

FAA Command Center: “Do we want to think about scrambling aircraft?”

FAA Headquarters: “God, I don’t know.”

FAA Command Center: “That’s a decision somebody’s going to have to make, probably in the next ten minutes.”

FAA Headquarters: “You know, everybody just left the room.”

“Everybody just left the room”: Your federal government in action. Under Bush, no one paid a price for it: That’s your “foul spirit” right there, Pericles. It will be the same when the Chinese yank the rug out from under the dollar: Everybody just left the room – at the White House, at the Fed, at the Treasury …but not at the IRS, where they’re still hard at it freezing the savings accounts of January insurrectionists’ nine-year-old grandkids.

GEORGE W. BUSH’S DREADFUL 9/11 SPEECH

Tuesday, September 14th, 2021

 

George W. Bush’s dreadful 9/11 speech

By Bryon York  September 12, 2021
 

President Joe Biden was silent during Saturday’s 9/11 commemoration events. So were former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Former President Donald Trump visited a New York City police precinct and fire station, where he made a few impromptu remarks.

The only president who delivered a formal speech on 9/11 was former President George W. Bush. And it was terrible.

In two ways. First, Bush’s speech was as much about decrying today’s political divisions as it was about remembering the events of Sept. 11. But Bush showed an astonishing lack of self-awareness of the role his own actions played in creating those divisions. And second, Bush helped widen those divisions by endorsing a Rachel Maddow-esque argument that an equivalence exists between the plane-hijacking, murderous terrorists of Sept. 11, 2001, and the Capitol rioters of Jan. 6, 2021 — a comparison that has no basis in fact but has done much to sour the national debate.

Bush spoke at ceremonies for Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It was the site of perhaps the most heroic of many heroic acts by Americans on Sept. 11. The passengers who fought back against the hijackers sacrificed their own lives to save the victims the terrorists were targeting. In the process, they likely also saved the Capitol, or perhaps the White House, from attack.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON-BIG PROBLEM IN TOP MILITARY RANKS

Victor Davis Hanson: There’s a Big Problem in the Top Ranks of Our Military, And Afghanistan Is Only the Beginning

September 1, 2021

It is the beginning of a never-ending bad dream. Joe Biden and the Pentagon have managed to birth a new terrorist haven, destroy much of U.S. strategic deterrence and alienate our allies and much of the country.

In the hours after the horrific deaths of 13 service members, we have been reassured by our military that our partnership with the Taliban to provide security for our flights was wise.

We were told that the terrorist victors share similar goals to ours in a hasty American retreat from Kabul. We were reminded that Afghan refugees (unlike U.S. soldiers) will not be forced to be vaccinated on arrival. Such statements are either untrue or absurd.

On the very day of the attack that killed American troops, the sergeant major of the U.S. Army reminded us in a tweet that diversity is our strength, commemorating not the dead but Women’s Equality Day. If so, then is the opposite of diversity — unity — our weakness? Will such wokeness ensure that we do not abandon the Bagram airbase in the middle of the night without opposition?

The chief of staff at the Office of Naval Intelligence warned the ONI’s active-duty and retired service members that they must not criticize Biden, their commander in chief, over the Afghanistan fiasco. The office correctly cited prohibitions found in the Uniform Code of Military Justice barring any disrespect shown to senior government leadership.

Indeed, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps was relieved of his command for posting a video accurately blaming military and civilian leadership for the Afghanistan nightmare.

Yet until Jan. 20, retired top brass had constantly smeared their elected commander in chief with impunity.

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.

AUSTRALIA’S EXTREME LOCKDOWN MEASURES

Tuesday, September 7th, 2021

 

I lived in Australia for 4 years back in the early 70’s.  It is very difficult for me  to recognize what is happening now in Australia as to how free  the country used to be.  Americans need to be very much aware of how quickly our freedoms can be lost.  Nancy  

Australia’s COVID Police State Is What Happens When You Give Up Your Guns

The COVID totalitarianism Aussies find themselves in today serves as a stark reminder to forever safeguard the right to self-defense, for it will offer more security than the government could ever guarantee.
SEPTEMBER 7, 2021 By Shawn Fleetwood
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: Most recently, the government of South Australia decided to expand their police powers even further, with officials announcing plans for a new app that uses facial recognition software to track the movements and location of its citizens to ensure universal compliance with state COVID regulations.

“People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation,” The Atlantic reported. “The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person.”
