Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and with the entire nation of Afghanistan, along with billions of dollars in military hardware as well as tens of thousands of American lives being handed to our enemies on a silver platter, the alleged “president” of the United States, Joe Towelette Biden, has called a lid and is going back on vacation. Can you blame the guy? Our southern border is wide open, our economy is heading towards collapse, our cities are no-go zones for even Dirty Harty and Snake Plissken, when they’re not being brainwashed to hate their country and their heritage, our kids are being traumatized with perpetual masks and isolation, our freedom of speech, self-defense and now movement is being eviscerated on the pretext of a virus being fear-porn’d as plague, and on and on and on. Yes indeed, undoing nearly 2,000 years of human development is hard work, especially for a man with the mental capacity of a fern.
Alluding to yesterday’s question about incompetence over ideology or vice versa is moot. Biden going back to his bowl of Galantamine ‘n Cream in Delaware has me convinced that the nightmare that is unfolding on the other side of the globe is most definitely enemy action. And when I say enemy, I mean Biden’s handlers and everyone who conspired to rig and steal the 2020 election — perhaps even the People’s Republic of China itself.
The pattern is clear for those who wish to see. Simply put, the left thinks America is not only evil, but irredeemably so. Hence, any policy, be it foreign or domestic, that weakens our nation-state should be pursued, the goal being that the nation-state will eventually corrode to the point of collapse. They don’t care that the hollowed-out dystopia will be long past its desirability for subjugation, so long as they get to be in charge. As Lord Varys said of Littlefinger, “He would see this country burn if he could be king of the ashes” . . .
. . . What started with Woodrow Wilson finally came into full force and in open view under Obama. Every time he could, Obama favored strict Islamist regimes over Western-friendly governments. Whenever overseas pro-democracy demonstrators flew American flags, Obama reflexively sided with their oppressors. He removed sanctions from Cuba and Iran and asked for nothing in return. The JCPOA, the Paris Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership were specifically designed to weaken American power behind the flimsy guise of noble causes.
What would strike the neutral observer as unabashed idiocy comes across as cold, deliberate Machiavellianism to anyone reading between the lines of Obama’s head swivel speeches. Obama is a mechanical Leftist, harboring the paint-by-number faculty lounge dictums of America as a negative historical force. Hence, almost every action he took was to weaken that force. Through this lens, one can see the pattern clearly, and his actions make perfect sense. . .
. . . Biden can’t be pro-American or anti-American or anything in between because he lacks the capacity to formulate a value system necessary to organize and prioritize such concepts.
Not so for every bureaucrat underneath him who was at best complicit, at worst a willing executioner, of his disastrous Afghanistan pullout. The same fool-me-once suspicion that Americans apply to the supposed 99.99998% of FBI field agents who, we are assured, are disgusted at their “few bad apples” who tried to overthrow a presidential election… yet from whose noble ranks emerged not a single whistleblower… should now be applied with equal force to the Pentagon. . .
. . . We just let the pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong, Cuba, and Iran know that they don’t have our support, other than the occasional week-too-late hashtag. We just let our allies in Taiwan, Ukraine, South Korea, and Israel know that we folded like wet paper to illiterate pedophiles in pickup trucks, so good luck against the million-man professional armies who are busy reassessing the futility of your current ceasefires. We just showed that, contrast to the dictum of “leave no man behind”, we will leave every man, woman, and child behind who, be they American or Afghan, civilian or military, ever lifted a finger to help us. We will literally let them fall off our planes. . .
. . . The left, including its swamp bureaucrats who administer our wars, has no qualms with what happened in Kabul. They support Biden’s grotesque withdraw not in spite of its consequences for America, but because of them. They want to see America humbled and weakened on the world stage. They want our enemies to outmaneuver us. They want us to lose our global leverage. . .
. . . This was all deliberate. . . What happened in Kabul was deliberate. In fact, I would argue it went far better than most leftists dreamed it would. . . Far from being a tragedy, our abandonment of Afghanistan was one of the left’s biggest foreign policy successes.
Read the whole thing. It’s a cold, but necessary, slap in the face that even I needed. In the not too recent past, the political divide over even some of the most hotly contested of third-rail issues did not mean that both sides did not have at the very least a modicum of respect for the political norms, boundaries and rules in which they operated. Politics at one time did indeed end at the water’s edge. But the reality is we are no longer debating issues; we are debating the validity of the existence of our way of life. Meh, if you look at the actions of Teddy Kennedy, arguably the most destructive politician in post-war America until the coming of Obama, the will to destroy goes back a long, long way. The Hart-Celler act that flooded the country with illegal alien registered Democrats in 1965 and the close-to-treasonous trip to the Soviet Union where he promised to help derail Ronald Reagan’s SDI are just two prime examples.
And speaking of immigration, legal or otherwise:
The United States, Europe, and other countries about to be saddled with a massive refugee surge spent countless billions and sacrificed the lives of their young men to build a country out of the rock and ruin of Afghanistan. They took bread out of the mouths of their own people and filled VA hospitals with the wounded, inside and outside, in a sacrifice that Afghans squandered.
The blame game over the fall of Afghanistan will go on for years, but the simple fact of the matter is that the majority of the Afghan military surrendered to the Taliban or ran away. Any debt here is owed to us by the Afghans. We have paid our debts in blood and treasure. The Afghan refugee crisis shows that the Taliban still have any number of ways that they can hurt us even once we have left Afghanistan. Their ability to turn the refugee tap on and off will allow not only the Jihadists, but their allies in Iran, Pakistan, and Turkey to blackmail us and our NATO allies by using Afghan refugees as a weapon. That’s a weapon we have to take away.
America is already staggering under the massive weight of illegal aliens arriving south of the border. We cannot accommodate the illegal aliens we have, let alone hundreds of thousands of people arriving from a stone age society whose values are fundamentally at odds with our own.
The Biden [junta] created the Afghan refugee crisis. It should not expect Americans in Texas, Wisconsin, Virginia, and anywhere else it’s plotting to dump its new wave of aliens, to shoulder the burden for a crisis that it created. The collapse of Afghanistan is one disaster. An Afghan refugee surge would be a second disaster. We can survive the collapse of Afghanistan, we can’t survive the collapse of America.
No doubt about it. It’s deliberate. If the boot in the groin was the 2020 election, and the sucker punch in the face was the purging of political opposition on the pretext of the January 6th Capitol Reichstag Fire, then the disaster in Afghanistan is now a hobnail boot curb stomping. We can talk all we want about impeachment and elections and what have you; the only way we are going to ever stop this let alone turn it around is if Leftists are removed from every level of government – from the White House down to the most obscure department of every agency. And that is going to take some heavy lifting, for all definitions of that phrase.
Meanwhile, as all that was going on, evidently there was some sort of bomb threat at the Capitol yesterday. I guaran-damn-tee you that Afghanistan or no Afghanistan, if the perp had even stepped in to Trump Tower 30 years ago for five minutes just to take a leak, this would be front page news for the next 10 days.
Oh, and it looks as if you will have to get vaccinated if you ever want to get on an airplane ever again. With any luck, America will run out of jet fuel so this won’t be a big deal. How long before you have to show your internet searches or voter registration?
Have a good weekend.
