I don't know about y'all, but I've had it with this administration's incompetence. Joe. Blow ran on his supposed foriegn affairs experience, but he has a history of wrong decisions, ie: was against raid to get bin Laden.

From: Stix
26-Aug-21
He also said no Taliban takeover too!

As a former operator in both Afghanistan and Iraq, this administration is a national disgrace

26-Aug-21
Guys a clown Steve. Unfortunately I think were gonna have to send some firepower to get these people out and risk our own people in the process because this guys an idiot and created this mess

God bless those who just lost their lives because of that fool.

The Taliban is now the best equipped terrorist group on the planet thanks to Biden and the military brass.

110 Helicopters 42K attack vehicles 75K vehicles 208 aircraft 20 attack planes 599K weapons 25K grenade launchers

It sickens me.Heroes? He sent them as sacrificial lambs.

40+ yrs in the mix, 8 yrs leadership (? !) during the height of the middle eastern mess

now claims it was all handed to him, like a jack in the box toy

thankfully for him, he has an orange scapegoat

bravo

Whitey don’t forget the ammo that I’ve yet to see a number on.

This entire administration is unfit to run our country. I am praying that sanity will prevail.

Having been a Corpsman with the Marines many years ago (5 years) I was hit hard again today with the reality of war.

We cannot fix stupid but we can make sure all those "we want" to get to safety can be saved.

"A report last month by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) indicates that the U.S.-backed Afghan military possessed more than 150 aircraft.

This includes four C-130 transport aircraft, 23 Brazilian-made A-29 "Super Tucano" turboprop ground-attack aircraft, 45 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, and 50 smaller MD-530 choppers. In addition, Afghan forces were given more than 30 military versions of Cessna single-engine fixed-wing aircraft.

It's not clear how many of those aircraft are still in Afghanistan. Uzbekistan says that hundreds of Afghan troops fled there last weekend with 22 military planes and 24 helicopters."

If you did not have to work so hard to get honest, fair, balanced information on what is really happening within our country, our leaders, the china virus, all over the world, millions and millions of voters might not vote the way they do. The media with few exception have silenced our last president. He has been cut off from all social media. The main stream media says zero postive about him. Contrast that to Biden.

Unmitigated disaster. But we all predicted this.

I was sad that he became President but was hoping we could get through it with a minimum amount of damage. Unfortunately its been worse on almost every issue than I was guessing. Like everyone, (left, right, or center) I realized he wouldn't be running things and we would actually be getting an agenda and decisions made by a group of unelected handlers. This latest failure is a giant one and I have no doubt its not by accident or incompetence. The buck stops with him but don't be too quick to lay all the blame at his feet. Thats likely the plan so that they get a clean slate when they take him off the starting roster. They will throw him to the wolves and boast about what a brave and noble act it was, and all for the people they serve. Biden wasn't ever one of the good guys even back when he was a mentally sharp politician and manipulator, but in this current game he is a pawn. The blame lies with the real decision makers.

8 months of failures…

From: Tilzbow
27-Aug-21
Regardless of what party you’re aligned with this will turn out to be a mostly meaningless 20 year war as far as history is concerned. During this war, we had 7 years of George W, 8 of Obama and 4 of Trump. At least Trump saw the need to get the hell out of there. Some great things were accomplished but not enough to offset the damage that was done to American soldiers lives and their families in a failed attempt to stabilize a country and region that’s been in disarray for hundreds, if not thousands, of years driven by supposed religious belief and extremism and this surely will continue. Recent events are truly horrible for the men and women of the armed services who gave the ultimate sacrifice or survived with permanent physical or psychological damage. They are truly heroes who should be honored and supported as such regardless of what political leadership did to put them in harms way, especially in recent days.

As far as Biden, is anyone surprised at his continued incompetence? Goes to show that experience doesn’t mean jack squat…. Trump surely wasn’t the best we as a country could put forward but Biden? Crap that’s like an embarrassment of historical proportions but at least he doesn’t say things to offend and irritate people….

As society we have to get away from the me me me attitude, we need to think about future generations and how our decisions today shape the world tomorrow. We have to lose the selfishness!

Right now we killing ourselves because we are terrified of a virus. When statistics say our odds of death are slim. Years way back we had men that stormed the beaches with an almost known certain death!

I have an honest question for all you election fraud conspirators. Exactly how does mail-in balloting favor one side or the other? We've had state-wide mail-in balloting in Colorado since 2013.

From: BowSniper
27-Aug-21
GG - the problem with widespread mail-in ballots is that this system is ripe for fraud. YOU may have voted once and honestly... but that doesn't mean the rest of the people will.

The main vulnerability with mail-in ballots is via ballot harvesting... which should be illegal everywhere, but which the democrats want to be expand and make legal nationwide.

There were several high profile arrests in Texas, for example, where health care workers at senior centers gathered hundreds ballots from their patients. In each arrest it was a democrat worker exploiting the system this way.

The problem with mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting (and drop boxes) is that you lose control of the chain of custody. Look up mailmen who have tossed boxes of mail in the trash, or kicked down Trump signs on video camera. People have bias to skew the election, including postal workers. Maybe especially [union] postal workers!

From: drycreek

I was born in 1947. Let that sink in. The USA hasn’t won a war since I was born. Plenty of blame to go around, but I think that the main reason for that is that politicians think the American public (i. e. voters) don’t have the guts to want to win. In truth, again my opinion, is the POLITICIANS DON’T HAVE THE GUTS TO WIN. They don’t mind throwing money at it, but they are unwilling to be the bad ass on the block. They would rather pacify the neighborhood bully than beat the compound shit out of him. That never works.

BowSniper,

I understand how mail-in balloting can be exploited. I just think believing that only one side has a monopoly on that exploitation is a little naive.

Matt

27-Aug-21
Both sides have sleazy grease ball politicians.

Remember though only one side is in favor of anyone and everyone can and should vote without proof of who they are.

Then dead people, non citizens, computers can all cast as many ballots as needed to win.

They thought they cast enough for Hillary and assured her she would win too. But they didn’t know the orange man would get that many votes.

So this time they made sure there were more than enough. Hence the reason A man that only campaigned briefly from the basement succeeded in drawing the most votes in history.

From: BowSniper
27-Aug-21
GG - I hear what you are saying, dishonesty is not exclusive to any one party. But I think it's naive to believe that the 2020 election set a 120yr record in voter turnout, or that Biden at his weakest/worst did better than his every prior election attempt, breaking every record for voting when he could barely draw a crowd.

The entire premise of widespread mail-in ballots being necessary because of covid is a lie. It would be naive to think a person can't safely vote once in person, but can somehow go to Walmart every week shopping. Or that any boxes of mail-in ballots would somehow be 99-1 in favor of Biden, no matter what location.... people just don't agree in those ratios on anything, ever.

From what I know having watched things for a lot of years......some things weren't clear.

1. What was our mission there? It seems different Prez's.....different missions as Prez's come and go and time passes.

2. It's clear we never had a solid exit strategy as past Prez's chose to stay there. Prez Trump comes along and made a command decision to get out troops out and negotiated a specific, conditional departure with the Talli's and the Afghan govt. Then, Prez Biden comes along and changes the conditional exit that Prez Trump put in place. I just heard on the news a second ago, there are (and will be) rumblings coming out (leaking?) that Prez Biden was advised not to do what he did and he over-ruled his advisors. He made political decisions and not strategic decisions.

3. I think we will look at history down the road and come to the conclusion we should have redefined the Afghan mission from a "war" to a place where we have strategic bases located to look after our own interests.....regular bases like we already had/have in many other countries like in Europe, Asia, etc. We were in Europe for decades after the war and have been in South Korea for decades after that war, We've been in Greenland (and until recently Iceland) for decades too. So having strategic bases to protect our interests is nothing new.

4. We need to figure out what to do with the U.N. They're about useless IMO.

I have a disabled nephew and plenty of other family and friends who are living proof of sacrifices made for our country. I have also had the pleasure of knowing many who have served going as far back as WWI who are now gone but never forgotten.

I fear this president and his staff are in no way competent enough to lead us on this matter or any other matters that are beneficial to the survival of this great nation.

God bless all and pray for a better tomorrow.

“No people who lost their character kept their liberties.” - Lawrence Reed

Blame shifting was Adam's choice in Eden when trying to hide his guilt. America today has a majority of moral delinquents. The Declaration of Independence, while voicing an independence from other nations, affirms that our rights come from the "laws of nature and nature's God. Thomas Jefferson predicted that slavery, a moral injustice upon mankind, would be the issue that would break the union of states and he was proven right. You may live in America apart from God, but America cannot continue if God is ignored. What you don't know about God is an ignorance that has consequences. The present moral shortcoming of America today is a banned subject on Bowsite and will close any thread mentioning it.

Mail in ballots are an issue but not the issue grey ghost. The problem is voting machines that can be tampered with remotely and programmed with algorithms that give joe 1.5 votes for every real vote and changed at midnight to give him 1.6 votes per real vote. That’s where the mass fraud happened. It only takes a programmed algorithm in 3-4 cities to change election results drastically.

Their requirement for you to support a position with a link doesn’t work right now because there are just too many that do. They cannot actually argue a point from a position of knowledge .

This was removed so I guess I'll post it again...

What does this even remotely have to do with bow hunting? Hey remember when Trump campaigned that he would remove ALL U.S. troops from afghanistan? He failed, he either lied or was incompetent in his inability to do what he said.(and don't tell me the generals convinced him not to... he already said he was smarter than the generals)

Hey remember when Trump made a deal and negotiated with the Taliban to remove all troops by May 1st 2021? And then started to remove those troops? Biden was able to extend that deadline.

I remember.

Trump made the deal. Biden finished the deal. 99% of this situation is due to the afghan arm folding so quickly. If trump had pulled out like he said this would have happened to him all the same. The afghan army was going to fold whether we left in spring or summer or 10 more springs from now.

If we pulled out a year from now this would still have happened, except it would be with the Taliban attacking us not helping us leave. Hindsight is 20/20 AFghans should have started evacuating a year ago when the deal was made and they learned we were leaving. But they didn't. Nobody thought the army would fold so fast. So instead of a trickle of people fleeing over months/years it's now in days. We have a deal to leave by the 31st and the taliban won't attack. We also made a deal to rescue those who helped us. As such it's a cluster and third party groups like ISIS(enemies of the taliban) can attack.

I'm getting really sick of people blindly following what "their side" tells them to follow/hear or see only what they want.

We succeeded in killing bin laden.

The fact is we should have left within a year or so on Obamas watch... we didn't

Trump made a deal with the Taliban, hence why we haven't had anyone killed by them in a year.

He failed to get troops out by the date agreed/his campaign promis.

Biden renegotiated and is now completing the deal.

We failed in making a bunch of religious tribes a democracy. And wasted a bunch of times, money, and lives doing so.

Sorry, you don't get to pin the failings of 20 years of war on an administration that's only been in control for 8 months.

The options were simple. Stick to the deal and leave by the 31st. Or start fighting the taliban again... forever. Leave someone elses war, or stay forever.

( I look forward to the "rebuttals" that will solely be personal attacks and fallacies. And nothing factual to refute the facts I put forth)

This marine says it straight and is relieved for cause - see link for full article

Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was relieved for cause after demanding that senior U.S. leaders hold themselves accountable for actions made during the U.S. military's withdrawal from Afghanistan that led to the deaths of 13 service members.

Scheller, a father of three who has been in the USMC Infantry for 17 years, mentioned senior military leaders including Marine Commandant Gen. David H. Berger, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley, whom he said are "supposed to advise."

"I'm not saying we need to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, ‘Hey, it’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone’? Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise their hand and say, ‘We completely messed this up’?"

It’s pretty simple. It would take a statistical miracle to change probability in something so one sided. If rally participation was any indication of probability. And it most certainly has to be.

Joe Biden rarely had a turn out big enough to fill any arena. Arena here being nothing more then an auditorium. As a fact, when his weakness became obvious, staged rallies where chairs were placed over preset dots to direct the two dozen hand picked viewers became his election strategy. It was blamed on Covid. But, unless the basis of statistical science is incorrect, their strategy had nothing to do with Covid.

Statistically, it would be a one in millions chance the rally turnouts didn’t represent the real world results with a sample size so large. Yet people are constantly saying fraud wasn’t a probability. Yet, in laymen’s terms, from the data those rallies presented, Biden winning the election would be as probable as finding a needle in haystack. And, we are still hearing how that wasn’t a statistical anomaly. I haven’t done the math officially but, the statistical chance of Biden winning the election was almost zero.

Are statistical errors possible? Yes. But, in a true random sample , rarely are more then 100 truly random samples needed to predict an acceptably accurate outcome. So, you guys keep on talking about the likelihood of no fraud in the past presidential election. It’s basically statistically impossible for Biden to have received more votes then Trump based on rally participation. Not to mention equally ignorant of the reality we were all seeing playing out in attendees at each candidates rally’s.

William Bredderman Researcher

Thursday was “an excruciating day” for California carpenter Steve Nikoui. He knew his son Kareem, a young U.S. Marine, was stationed at the Kabul airport. But when he heard there had been a bombing there, he had no idea if Kareem was alive or dead.

“I stayed home from work yesterday because there was that attack and I knew he was there,” Nikoui told The Daily Beast early Friday morning. “So all day, I was glued to the TV.”

Just hours after the U.S. military warned of an imminent terror threat, a suicide bombing rocked Hamid Karzai International Airport and the surrounding area. At least 13 U.S. service members were killed, and another 18 were wounded. Scores of Afghans also died in the terror attack.

Military officials have not released the names of the slain troops but said they included 10 Marines, two soldiers, and one Navy medic.

Steve Nikoui said he knew the Marines contacted the families of anyone killed in action “within eight hours.” Right about 7:15 p.m. PT, “these young men walked up,” he said.

They first appeared on Nikoui’s phone, which was linked to his doorbell camera, he explained. He had been watching the news for any word of his son or his comrades, and wanted to make sure he intercepted any bad news before his wife and other son got home and saw a clutch of Marines standing there.

“My wife and I felt very honored that [since] these other boys weren’t around their homes, that we were able to provide some sort of family life for them,” he said. “He really loved that [Marine Corps] family. He was devoted—he was going to make a career out of this, and he wanted to go. No hesitation for him to be called to duty.”

Through tears, Nikoui expressed flashes of anger along with his anguish. He said he wants to “respect the office” of the president, but doesn’t have much love for President Joe Biden at the moment. A Trump supporter, Nikoui was happy that Trump was in office when Kareem joined the Marines. “I really believed this guy didn’t want to send people into harm’s way,” he said.

“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” said Nikoui. “I blame my own military leaders… Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”

The Marines who came to deliver the news of Kareem’s death were “more choked up than me,” Nikoui said. “I was actually trying to console them. But at the same time, I just wanted them to get out as soon as possible so that no one from my family came back and saw them. I thought it appropriate that I be able to tell them.”

“I haven’t gone to bed all night,” Nikoui continued. “I’m still in shock. I haven’t been able to grasp everything that’s going on.” As of right now, Nikoui’s plan is to go to Dover, Delaware, and pick up his son’s remains.

Part of a bigger article from Jan 2021 on dead folks who voted. Found on a Google search about dead voters.

"2. What Were ‘Dead Voting’ Patterns in Past Elections?

The total number of votes cast in the names of dead voters in the 2020 election likely won’t be known for some time.

In 2016, the last presidential election year, 7,890 registered voters who were dead were credited with voting across 41 states.

The number declined in 2018 to 6,178, according to a report earlier this year from the Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity watchdog.

The group actually got data from 42 states, but one-—Vermont—had recorded none of its 104 dead registrants as having voted. Three states—Illinois, Maine, and Maryland—withheld the data. In the remaining five states, the report says, “insurmountable gaps in the poor quality of the state’s data impaired the research.”

“Nine states either offer limited data or none at all to the public,” foundation spokesman Logan Churchwell told The Daily Signal.

Churchwell said similar numbers for the 2020 election are difficult to determine at this point.

The report by the Public Interest Legal Foundation found 349,773 apparently dead people listed on voter registration rolls in the 41 states covered by its study during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.

New York, Texas, Michigan, Florida, and California accounted for 51% of the total names, according to the foundation.

Michigan is one of the states where the results are being litigated in the aftermath of the 2020 election. The names of 34,225 dead people are on the voter registration rolls. Of those, 104 were recorded as voting in 2016, and 97 in 2018.

Rounding out the top 10 with at least 11,000 dead registered voters each are Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Connecticut, Virginia, New Jersey, and Tennessee.

Pennsylvania, among the most contested states in the aftermath of the 2020 election, lists 16,685 registered voters who are dead, according to the foundation’s report. However, that number is now known to be more than 21,000, based on an amended lawsuit filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

In 2018, the report shows 127 dead people on the voter rolls were recorded as voting in Pennsylvania. That’s 50 fewer than the 177 dead Pennsylvanians credited with voting in the 2016 election.

On a per capita basis, North Carolina leads the U.S. in dead registrants recorded as voting in 2016 and 2018, according to the foundation’s report. This year, Trump carried North Carolina, which was considered a battleground.

As for other states where the outcomes are being litigated after Election Day, Wisconsin ranks 16th with 6,805 dead registered voters in previous elections, according to the report. Of those, 163 were credited with voting in the 2018 midterms and 186 in the 2016 presidential election.

Georgia placed 20th in the report, with 4,243 dead registered voters in the previous elections. Of those, 12 were recorded as voting in 2018 and 17 in 2016.

The contested state of Nevada ranks at No. 22 with 3,258 dead registered voters in the previous two federal elections. Of those, four voted in 2018 and seven in 2016.

Arizona ranks 25th with 2,289 dead people on the voter rolls. Of those, 28 were credited with voting in 2018 and 23 in 2016.

The numbers are likely higher for 2020, von Sponvakovsky said.

“I would think it’s at the very least the same proportionally, and realistically, it’s higher because there was such a higher number of mail-in and absentee ballots used this year,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal. “It’s so much easier for a member of the family to cast a vote for a deceased relative.”

In a separate 2012 study, the Pew Center on the States found that about 24 million voter registrations were no longer valid or contained significant inaccuracies, while 1.8 million dead individuals were listed on voter rolls nationally.

A 2010 study by Caltech/MIT Voting Technology Project asserts that, in a typical state, “1 in 40 counted votes in the 2008 general election cannot be matched to a registrant listed as having voted” and that “1 in 100 listed registrants is likely to be deceased.”

The 2010 study also concludes that “1 in 25 registration records is estimated to be deadwood, because of registrants who have not voted in a very long time, have moved elsewhere and re-registered, or are thought to be deceased.”

These votes can make a difference in an election, although it’s not likely, von Spakovsky said.

“It’s probably only if it’s a marginal victory,” von Spakovsky said. “Could it make a difference if the margin of victory is 10,000? Maybe. Could it make a difference if the margin of victory is 140,000? Probably not.” "

My wife, on a hunch in Oct 2020, called our county clerk when all these mail in ballots were going on because of the COVID thing. She wanted to verify our voter status because we could kind of see the writing on the wall with regards on how this mail in ballot thing was going to go. In our state of Nevada, Vegas rules and they are rife with socialist filth and there is a recent history of voter fraud here Long story short, she verifies our voting eligibility and party and on a whim, asked about her mother’s status as well . Yup, still good to go. Ballot returned and everything checked. Good to go. Thing is, her mom had had died 2 years prior. But she voted, god bless’er. Wouldn’t tell us how, but she by god voted. I called and checked on my parents and thankfully they were not on the registrar. So yeah, the nation needs to pull their collective heads out of their asses and fix this bullshit.

Agreed, but that would require 50 states to each pass laws to that effect, plus regulations to ensure that the voter registration rolls were updated in a timely manner. (And then the state offices would piss and moan about how they're under budgeted and under staffed.)

For more context. I just watched a documentary/movie on President Johnson LBJ

We was talking about all the dead people voting in Chicago That was in the early 60s and a prominent Democrat was discussing it openly.

So are we that naive that we think it not only didn't go away, but got more sophisticated

Voting in person with an ID gets in the way of that.

That’s why they get so upset about Georgia and Texas clamping down on the fraud

In my post above. I was quoting LBJ not Trump. LBJ said matter of factly that dead people were voting in Chicago in the 60s

They still haven’t prosecuted the killer of Jimmy Hoffa. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t killed. It just means the killers were good at it.

If dead people were voting in the 60s I’m betting they have gotten better at it since the 60s.

Lolz this religion touting.... Indeed lots of religion in Afghanistan. When the right/repubs say "religion" they mean Christianity. And when they say Christianity they mean "do as I say not as I do."

It's hypocrisy from top to bottom. The religious extremists from Afghan are no different than what we have brewing at home. Only difference is they follow a different version of the same story and eat pork.

Religion had a somewhat useful role some 500+ years ago. I mean much of it was simple laws and health codes(see Leviticus 13:45-46) and was a way to explain the unexplainable. But in modern society? Plain and simple religion is a detriment and will be the downfall of modern man/society. There will come a day where religious beliefs will be as common as flat earth believers, almost non-existent. Until then we have to deal with fallout of such beliefs.

People that have not experienced action, have a far different respect for keen leadership than those of us who have experienced it. As I said in my opening post, as a former operator in AFG and IQ, I don't like the direction in which this airlift was developed. We would have been far better by keeping to Trumps May withdrawal with the keys to the city handed directly over to the Taliban, with a gradual prior withdraw of all troops, equipment, and friends. Biden's plan to try to shore up the Afghan Defense Forces and leaving US equipment to do so was a major boner. I served with some of these guys, embedded in our units. Most were in it just for the paycheck and nothing else. They continually showed up late for patrol, some even forgot their helmets and weapons. It was well known that most had no will to fight. My command structure knew this advised Trump not to beef them up and have an equipment removal prior to withdrawal as they knew they were not a dedicated group. Trumps listened to the military and adopted this plan. It was to take place out of Bagram Air Base where force protection was prevalent, not HKIA (civilian airport). It was Biden's plan to try and shore the ADF up and he would extend the departure to 8/31 to do this. All the other stuff written on this thread deriding Trumps plan didn't know the specifics, and listen to what CNN is preaching, which is totally inaccurate.

A commander in chief has to put America first. Dealing with the Taliban was our best choice to put America first, not rely on a bunch of bums who folded over before a threat was even established. The took our money for 20 years and ran.

This was a terrible miscalculation by Biden and his advisors, and all should be removed from office. And no I didn't vote for Trump, I voted for Jo Jorgensen (libertarian)

Syria was a far different story, 0bama got the U.S. involved in someone's civil war, which we had no business intervening in in the first place. 0bama and his retracted "Red Lines" in the sand killed more "Syrian allies" than the 0bama administration and the lapdog media ever admitted to. We went into Afghanistan after 9/11 to pursue the perpetrators of an attack on American soil. My opinion is we should never have entered into the Syrian conflict.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American-led_intervention_in_the_Syrian_civil_war Wikipedia- "Shortly after the civil war broke out in 2011, the U.S. initially supplied the rebels of the Free Syrian Army with non-lethal aid (e.g. food rations and pickup trucks), but quickly began providing training, money, and intelligence to selected Syrian rebel commanders. At least two U.S. programs attempted to assist the Syrian rebels, including a 2014 Pentagon program that planned to train and equip 15,000 rebels to fight ISIL, which was canceled in 2015 after spending $500 million and producing only a few dozen fighters.[142] A simultaneous $1 billion covert program called Timber Sycamore conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) aimed at fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was more successful, but was decimated by Russian bombing, and canceled in mid-2017 by the Trump administration.[142]"

More on Biden's incompetence -

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/time-to-rethink-bidens-anti-american-energy-policies/ar-AANQAyT?li=BBnbfcL

"Biden paused all oil and gas leasing on federal lands. He then killed the Keystone XL pipeline and the many thousands of jobs it supported, claiming the pipeline did not serve the U.S. national interest. Only a few months later, he supported removing sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, handing a major energy and international policy win to Russian President Vladimir Putin and oil giant Gazprom." -- Smells like Russian Collusion.

- ""While the president's anti-energy policies stifled domestic production and raised prices on consumers, Biden again snubbed American energy producers by going on bended knee to OPEC and pleading for the oil cartel to boost production. It's possible that he is reliving the past, doesn't remember the fracking revolution has already happened and honestly believes America is still beholden to Middle Eastern oil. Regardless of what year the president thinks it might be, OPEC rebuffed his request.""

"Biden team miscalculated and blew it....big time."

As usual, the alphabet soup propaganda media sites, leftist politicians, and the Biden apologists are all pointing to the "fact" that it's Trump's fault, as Trump had made arrangements with the Taliban for a withdrawal date, and Biden was naturally beholden to uphold the previous administrations policy, the sarcasm here is my input.

The current O'biden exit strategy is to blunder forward blindly, ignoring the intelligence community and the military experts who actually understand what's happening on the ground, instead relying on the expertise of his CRT and PC compliant lackeys he quickly advanced to key positions to placate the far left of his base.

The Democrats and the propaganda media would have you believe that out of all the Trump policies Joe inherited, Afghanistan was the one he kept intact. The only people dumb enough to believe that are the people defending him. Don't expect anything more than whining and blaming others for his mistakes moving forward, it's what progressive democrats do, and it's ingrained in their DNA.

Oh no, not jimmy Carter Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan George Bush (had a friend in 1989 tell me about Clinton that if it walked like a duck and talked like a duck then it was probably a duck) hmm, perfect political analysis.

Absolutely no to Clinton’s second run.

Gore vs Bush really didn’t think Gore was anything but a talking point!

No to Obama both times, couldn’t figure out how a self proclaimed average student went to Harvard or Columbia! Second time no way after the slam and cram ACA.

Trump vs Hillary was easy to with a non Washington insider and what was exactly Hillary’s experience? You got it, little too none!

Biden vs Trump, 47 years in Washington D.C. and no significant accomplishments.

I really didn’t start paying attention to politics until the infamous “chad count”.

Frankly, I don’t think that the Democrats have had a truly solid candidate since Kennedy!

Solid doesn’t mean that they can get elected but someone worthy of my vote.

Leftwing Democrats that support ANTIFA and BLM have a lot more confession to make than any Trump supporters.

Jan 6th was a grade school cafeteria food fight compared to the months of ANTIFA and BLM riots and violence.

For example “ More than 2,000 law enforcement officers were injured in the first weeks of protests over the summer following the in-custody death of George Floyd, according to a report from the Major Cities Chiefs Association.

The Association detailed the unrest and compiled data from protests between May 25 and July 31 in MCCA member cities.

During that period, there were 8,700 protests nationwide; 574 were declared riots with violence and other criminal acts. “

2000 police officers injured by Leftwing nutjobs that have the same Political viewpoints and opinions as you. And that was just in the 1st few weeks and you portray Jan 6th as much worse.

As to cops being killed

“ The sniper who killed five Dallas police officers Thursday night as they guarded protesters at an anti-police brutality march was angry about recent shootings by police and “wanted to kill white people,” according to authorities. He was also an ardent BLM supporter”

The gunman was identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, who was blown up by a police robot while holed up on the second level of a parking garage early Friday morning after negotiations with police broke down.”

No one is buying your BS anymore. The facts are indisputable.

Leftwing activist in 2020 killed and injured more people and police officers than any Pro Trump activists.

“In just 10 days, after George Floyd’s self induced death, your team caused nearly $2 Billion dollars in property damage across the Country. 10 days. Pro Trump activists didn’t do that in 7 years.

What mainstream media outlets have dubbed as "mostly peaceful protests" caused up to $2 billion in property damage in the first two weeks of protests alone, Axios reported Wednesday.

The report found that the damage caused by demonstrations from May 28 to June 8 cost insurance agencies anywhere from $1 to $2 billion—more than any other event of civil unrest in United States history. The total cost of damage throughout the summer "far outstrip[s]" the millions in damages caused by the Los Angeles riots in 1992

Jan 6th is an anomaly. And it’s been greatly exaggerated by your Team for political effect, but the facts prove your team is the real threat to peace, freedom, and Democracy.

Here’s a small list of cops killed or injured by your team. As of June 6th 2020.

"I have stated several times that Biden owns what happened in Afghanistan. And people died and were injured because of his decisions. You can’t minimize it."

Ok. But what does that mean? Will he be held accountable for his decision? See, He can say "I take full responsibility for what happened" but if there is no consequences for his colossal cluster phuc, it's just words. Empty. Words. And please, leave Trump out of it. A true leader doesn't deflect or blame others. He takes responsibility for his actions, owns it and faces the consequences. The man is no fit for office. The picture of his head hanging in shame proves it.

Just can't understand why supposedly educated, some highly, would vote for this man. It was clear he was unfit. Anyone with two firing brain cells knew he had ZERO foreign experience, unless you count bullying the Ukraine and then bribing them. Cuts our oil production and then asks OPEC and the Russians to open the faucet because of rising energy costs. Depends on the Taliban to provide safe passage. As Kathy asked a Bowsiter once, HYLYFM?

Many people were injured, including 138 police officers.

138 to the THOUSANDS injured by your team.

“Four officers who responded to the riot committed suicide within seven months.”

Looking for the suicide notes left behind blaming Trump. Maybe they felt bad about the way they treated their fellow Americans.

In any event your pathetic attempt to blame unfortunate suicides to Trump is ridiculous.

Just a reminder fellows.

350,000 members of the Afgan Army, walked off of their posts / duty to their country in the advance of 70,000 of the Taliban. Their President fled the country !

They won't defend their own country !!!

This stupid war should have ended over over 16 years ago !

To blame this ridiculous war on anyone person or president is wrong. There is a lot of complicity here.

Remember President Dwight D. Eisenhower's, departing speech and warning,

Beware of the "Industrial Military Complex"

After spending nearly $2 Trillion dollars on this war, maybe just maybe a more rounded view of the current problem there is warranted.

This isn't a Republican or Democrat problem it is an American problem with how we have invested ourselves in senseless wars.

I don't think folks are getting it. I have heard NO ONE say they opposed getting "out" of Afghanistan. Most agree now it was a mistake to stay and it was a tin can that president after president kicked down the road for years. Trump had a plan to get us out that relied on CONDITIONS to be met BEFORE we left. Never a hard fast no matter what date. Getting out is not the issue. It's about HOW and WHY House Plant and his Merry Band did it the way they did.

The way it was done..... sorry, it would be too easy to call it incompetence or "political". Again..... NOBODY is that incompetent. This is the most powerful military in the history of the planet. YOU make the terms, YOU make the demands and YOU tell them how it's going to go. And you MAKE that happen or else. You beef up where and if needed, you make your evacuations under security and retrieve your arms and equipment as necessary and destroy the rest, leaving nothing to the terrorists. You control whatever airports you need and the LAST thing that leaves are the guys that eliminate threats hundreds at a time. A military private, hell a 16 year old could have developed a better plan than the total FUBAR that happened.

We actually outsourced security at the airport in this last bombing. Gave them a hit list of who to go after. SMH...

This is no mistake, no accident. Planned and paid for. We have elected a President on someone else's payroll. And it was all KNOWN well before the election. Payments from China (they shared offices together even) Moscow, Ukraine, Soros, etc all documented.... but excused and hidden by a corporate globalist companies, globalist media for the Globalist cause. Enemy states, semi-enemy states and Soros communists/globalists. If you can't see what the left is about you really aren't paying a lick of attention, just following the shinny virtue signaling toys they dangle..... BLM is literally a Marxist entity, it WAS stated so on their website. ANTIFA, that's clear as day who they are as well as who supports them.

America FIRST is what they fear, it's why Trump was hated and feared. He was literally right when he said "it's not me they are after..... I'm just standing in the way...."

It's why ALL of this is happening, from the southern border, to actively disrupting domestic oil/energy, to covid response, to support of special interest activism to pit us against each other, Demonizing the right as "the greatest threat to our country since the Civil War and 9/11". Defund the police. The list is seemingly endless, perpetual outrage and victimhood. If they can't find any they literally manufacture it..... even a new word.... to Smollett....

All want to see a compliant obedient US brought to heel.

I WISH it was just stupidity and incompetence.

He took the bullet for telling it like it is. I can see why he was relieved. What he did as an active duty military person was publicly circumvent the chain of command with his views and you can't do that. However.....I think he made a calculated decision and knew he would be kicked out. His stock is now much higher and he brings to light the question I'm sure many in the military are quietly asking about their leaders. If no one is held accountable at the highest levels, the troops will loose confidence in their leaders and the military. That's not good for the country. I can see his future following in the steps of LTCOL Allen West.

Marines Stand Up for Lt. Col. Scheller's Call for 'Accountability'

By Eric Mack | Sunday, 29 August 2021 12:42 PM

The Marine relieved of his command for using a Facebook video to call for accountability from leadership after the deaths of 13 U.S. service members in the suicide bombing is not backing down.

Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, a 17-year veteran just three years from full pension, is also garnering some support from fellow Marines for his "real courage" for speaking out, the New York Post reported.

"The baby boomer's turn is over," Scheller, 41, told the Post, saying "every generation needs a revolution." "I demand accountability, at all levels. If we don't get it, I'm bringing it."

Marines who served under Scheller stood behind him.

"It takes real courage to do what he did and that was Stu all the way," Juan Chavez, 33, who served under Scheller 2011-2014, told the Post. "He was a magnificent leader, a breath of fresh air, who was always going to do what's right, even if it goes against the grain."

Scheller's father, Stuart Sr., called his son "the real deal, a Marine's Marine."

"People will follow him to the ends of the earth," Stuart Scheller Sr. told the Post. "He has put his life on the line for fellow Marines, so putting his career on the line like this does not surprise us."

Scheller Jr. was praised for his four-minute, 45-second Facebook video calling for accountability from leadership for the 13 dead U.S. service members and at least 169 Afghans civilians, but he was also warned to take it down from people standing behind him.

"Obviously, I didn't take it down," Scheller wrote in a later Facebook post. "I'll offer this . . . we can't ALL be wrong. If you all agree . . . then step up. They only have the power because we allow it. What if we all demanded accountability?"

Scheller called out Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David H. Berger, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and White House Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.

"People are upset because their senior leaders let them down, and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, 'We messed this up,'" he said.

His father noted his son idolized his World War II veteran grandfather who landed on the beach at Normandy.

"He's still on the battlefield protecting his men and women," Scheller Sr. told the Post. "It's interesting that no one has answered his call for accountability. Their answer was to fire him I guess. It's a sad day for America."

Scheller Jr., who received Combat V for Valor and a Bronze Star, is a married father of three boys who lives in Jacksonville, N.C.

The Facebook video has had more than 30,000 likes and comments.

"Proud to have served under your command sir, we'll follow you to the pits of hell and back," Zach Olbrys of Worcester, Mass., wrote.

Another predicted a future run for political office.

"I see a seat in Washington in your near future!!" Ryan Holland of Lexington, Kentucky, wrote. "It was always an honor serving with you sir! Semper Fi!"

Last thing. The clowns demanding we blame Trump for the protesting that turned South on January 6th want us to condemn Trump for it. They also banged the gongs…loudly…for impeachment. They supported his impeachment over a stupid phone call too.

Now Biden does something 10000 times worse and not a peep about Biden needing to be impeached. Not a single word.

Oh they said “he owns it” and we “kinda blame him”. But they have not said he should be impeached.

Again Biden’s action precipitated the death of over a dozen Americans with more to follow. Biden’s actions have left hundreds of Americans stranded surrounded by the enemy. Biden’s actions will result in the enslavement and sexual abuse of untold numbers of young girls and women.

Biden’s actions have given the enemy Billions of dollars of sophisticated weapons that will eventually be used against American citizens.

But not a single call for him to go by the resident Lefties. Not a single Lefty has said “yeah I supported Trump’s impeachment and Biden needs to go too.”

The majority of America pertaining to leadership has this issue… we are a people who has been so spoiled by Gods goodness, we have forgotten where our goodness comes from: We take God out of the courthouse and judgement is perverted, we take God out of Law/enforcement, and law is confusing, we take God out of our schools, and schools become a cage of every foul spirit, we take God out of our politics, and we get the love of money, we take God out of the home, and the home loses all purpose, and finally we take God out of humanity and we call evil good and good evil… what’s left? Now this is not the case everywhere, but this truth is witnessed more and more daily by the moment… and when such abounds, every form of leadership falls from a godly standard… we have went as far today to take Jesus Christ out of the church, and when this happens, they bring in the entertainment band, remove holiness, come as you are regardless of who you are, and people are welcomed to stay how they are instead of God making them who they need to be, like Jesus Christ. Sunday for most Christians means nothing, the majority of professing believers today when hunting season starts skip church for a deer, bad priorities in my opinion, and to all dads who talk about loving God and then violated His word, your children are watching you and your influence Will effect them one way or another, it’s supposed too (I’m talking about Sunday hunters instead of Sunday worshippers) I’m not casting a stone, don’t need to do that, it is what it is. If America wants to return to its joy, power, peace, prosperity, and purpose…and real leadership it starts with Gods Son Jesus Christ. This has been witnessed for over 6000 years, nothing new here. When God is obeyed there is a blessing… when God is rejected there is a curse, some call it karma, but no such thing exists, it’s sowing and reaping. When Israel wanted a king (President), God gave them Saul, what a mess that was, here’s the point, God gave the people the kinda king (President) they deserved, Saul was a High example of what the people were in that day, this is it with today, God help us!

I'm not convinced that occupying a hostile 3rd world shithole like AFG kept Americans safe.

Rocky, the people getting rich (and/or re-elected) on military spending come from both sides of the aisle. This is one of the true 'bipartisan' agreements in DC today.

Hey Dana, what part of this debacle has/is still escaping you?

This predicament and, your basis for even commenting since it’s happened, has been about the US military being there in the first place. However, You refuse to talk about the real issue. Which was/is the way the withdrawal was implemented and carried out.

You can keep on steering the discussion away from that but, nobody cares. Let’s discuss what the moron in office did. How he did it. And, the cost executing the withdrawal the way he did. Lets not put put blinders on and blame everyone else like you keep insisting on doing.

Okay, do you really believe that IF Trump had been re-elected he would have done it SO MUCH better?

Like it or not, believe it or not, Biden won the election, and got us out of AFG. Could it have been done 'better'? Probably , but NO candidate showed us EXACTLY how he or she would do just that. So comparing Biden's performance to some mythical ideal is just smoke-blowing.

I figure this withdrawal/surrender FUBAR was mostly due to White Rage..... that's what the generals are studied up on. Winning wars and military strategy is passe, ya knuckle draggers.... nobody wants to talk that at cocktail parties.

Deep State Dept philosophers and Masters Degrees says the Taliban are really good hearted people that mean well.... just have to talk nice and give em a chance to be part of the global community.... be their friend..... trust them... it'll be fine, no worries. Everybody in the end just wants to be liked.... Guessing Trump voters still on the terrorist lists along with folks that don't like masks but not a clue how many real terrorists from the open southern borders much less from the latest cluster air lifts. No matter, they are all the same as the folks that just blew up our soldiers. That is verbatim.

All of which is right down the same pipes with "defund the police", etc. Same flippin' people. With the same Great Ideas. With the same Globalist Plan.

Incompetent? No, not hardly. Insane? Perhaps. Evil megalomaniacs? Quite likely.

This is just in the first 8 or 9 months.... "it doesn't matter who is elected or which party is in charge" Good grief, some folks you can't even slap the stupid out of when stupid is in style and you must flash the signalling of your virtues.....

This shows the ignorance some of the right have. Believe it or not there are many democrats that are hunters. Don't paint everyone with the same brush used to paint the fringe.

Another reason is that there are many conservatives that could never support the previous President because of who he is, not because they oppose conservative agenda items.

Yes, based on the evidence and hearings I was for Trump impeachment. Both times. I’m not against Congress using the powers given to them to impeach Biden. I would hold my opinion on Biden impeachment until after the evidence hearings…if they happen. With that said, I would like to see hearings due to the incompetent way the withdrawal happened. I honestly can’t see a legit reason why it happened the way it did. He is the commander in chief. He should have to answer for it. But the democrats are no different then the republicans. They will try to justify a wrong to stay in power. Despicable. It seems very few have the guts to call their own party out anymore. Party before country is to rule of the day. There is very little honor anymore.

If they want to go through the impeachment process on Biden over this then I’m for it. Lay out exactly how this happened. Who said and did what. Why did it happen this way. Hold him accountable and make him and his cabinet answer the questions publicly. Too much misinformation and knee jerk reaction out there. Just like itshots post. I want to know and then I’ll decide if I’m for impeachment but I’m all for Congress using their oversight powers. That’s our constitutional process and I’m 100% in on the constitution. It has to be our guiding light through this complete s#%tshow that has become our partisan political government.

“What have YOU DONE in the last year to improve or save your country?“

I met a guy today for the first time and he had a Trump hat on. Man, I really do not like Trump. I welcomed him into my home and talked with him for two hours and did him a personal favor.

I don’t trust the Democrats that held the hearings either. I listen to Trumps own words on the call and I felt it was very dangerous for an American president to ask a foreign leader to do him a political favor against his political opponent. I also listen to the ambassadors and other witnesses and it confirmed my initial view of Trumps conversation with the Ukrainian president. I thought the evidence was there to justify impeachment. The second impeachment to me was without question. Trumps words and actions before, during, and after January 6th absolutely made him culpable for the his supporters trying to stop a constitutional process. He created the weather then was so surprised that it rained and stormed. IMO it was the lowest point in our history in my lifetime…just my opinion from my perspective. But of course we didn’t get the public hearings and trial due to party first politics.

WRT Trump's Jan 6th deal.....he told those people to march peacefully....some didn't listen. The FBI investigation recently concluded there was no insurrection. That word gets tossed around a lot in the media and by politicians to stir emotions.

I think a few things hurt the Dems in that whole process. Rep Adam Schift who was leading the impeachment "trial", among other things, got caught lying. Pelosi's rush to do a second impeachment after the election was over then became more of a question of why? Well.....she is afraid Trump will run again and she was using the impeachments as a vehicle to prevent Trump from running in 2024.

Phil, you know that’s a poor argument

“Despite all the fearmongering, my Second Amendment rights haven't been infringed.”

The only reason is because the people on the Right are fighting for the 2nd amendment. Here’s the facts.

“ A lone Democratic House candidate and no Democratic Senate candidates received A grades from the NRA this year, while 92 percent flunked. It’s a dramatic departure from 2010, when more than a quarter of Democrats received A’s. Meanwhile, the share of Republicans with A’s this year is virtually unchanged from past elections, at 94 percent. And the share receiving F’s has fallen to nearly 1 percent, after a slight uptick in 2018. Once a coveted designation that could make or break a campaign, the NRA’s grading system is now mostly a reflection of the country’s ideological divide.”

So the point is you still have gun rights because the Right has stopped the Left. Not because the Left supports the 2nd Amendment. Your argument is disingenuous.

On that we agree. I'd also point out that at least one founder spoke in favor of ' a government of Laws and not of men.'

I dont see how I could support the constitution and support abortion, gun control , immoral taxe systems, mandated mask, mandated vaccines, redistribution of wealth, Patriot Act, ..not to mention regulations that restrict the economy "

Can you show me where the Constitution says anything about abortion? And the Constitution says this about taxes "Article I, Section 8, Clause 1: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States". I understand immoral may be open to interpretation but the Constitution doesn't differentiate.

The Constitution gives states the power to protect public health -that's where the mask mandates have come from. The same with regulations that restrict the economy. The Constitution gives those powers to the states.

Nope, it was you.

2 WildBill, I don't recall the context but I do know that a single-standard healthcare system, modeled after Medicare and implemented through private insurers, would absolutely save money. I spent a large portion of my career in that field and know it would cost significantly less.

Also, I'm not redefining conservatism. That's taken place over the past several years to the point that Reagan today would not be considered a conservative because he hels some moderate views.

As far as what Reagan would or would not support, you are wrong but I can understand why you think the way you do because of how information is presented today. He had multiple views but, ultimately he did not openly oppose it.

Where people get the idea Reagan opposed the government being in healthcare comes from his words before running for President. Before he was President he opposed compulsory healthcare and opposed Medicare for that reason. But he favored government subsidies for healthcare, at least when he wasn't criticizing it as "...curtailing Americas' freedom".

But, after becoming President, he changed his views, became more pragmatic, and passed the largest Medicare expansion in decades and was willing to raise taxes to do it. Those taxes were later removed by George H. W. Bush.

01-Sep-21
TGBow, Of course it doesn't mention stealing a Camaro or anything. And no that's not OK but it's not a Constitutional item from a federal viewpoint, the Constitution lets the states deal with that.

Of course I'm aware of the leftist agenda. That doesn't mean I support it. And I never voted for a Marxist. It's short-sighted to label anyone that voted for a democrat as marxist.

It’s ludicrous to state someone doesn’t know the views of another man, to only defend doing so by stating they know the other mans beliefs.

As far as drawing lines, the Constitution didn’t define life at birth. While I can’t ask them, it was obvious the a large majority of the founding fathers were largely followers of God. Who did define life. Who did define morality. So, it’s cool to patsy around acting as if assumptions only apply to what you find relevant. But, it just ain’t so.

If we can dehumanize a group of people(as in slavery), why shouldnt a person have the right to own slaves? Why shouldnt a person have the right to take your possessions? Or the right to plunder, rape and murder? We errored greatly when it came to slavery, and Jim Crowe laws...states do have rights but what good is tje constitution if a state has the right to ensalve you, tsll where you can go or where you can eat,or take away your rightvto carry a handgun, ect.

IdyllwildArcher,

If you didn't have a Declaration of Independence, you wouldn't have had a Constitution. The two are intertwined with principles of governance and are complimentary documents to be understood together. Both were forged in Independence Hall and there were six people there who signed both. Ben Franklin being one of those men was also an editor of both documents.

Justin and HDE, Phil has tried to sidetrack Constitution argument by saying murder was not mentioned in the Constitution. But it is, as a police matter to be managed by the states, not a federal government which was created to bond the states. Policing is better handled at a state level, unless of course you want the Federal Police Force that Obama wanted. Hmmmmm, could that be why defunding local police is so popular with the Democrats, a back door to federal police who are absolutely as just and right as the federal government is today?

A couple of years ago the left tried to define the freedom of speech as meaning only approved press outlets and not an individual right.

I think what chaffs them most is that the founders understood and outlined the American people as sovereign with rights from the laws of nature and nature's God. Therefore, government has always tried to stand in God's place and define right from wrong for you, instead of being limited to protect your rights from God as pointedly written in the Constitution. Remember this, anytime they want to trample your rights, it is for your own good(not).

It’s the foundation of what those assumptions are based on, that largely defines if it’s accurate or not. And, there is more then enough evidence to suggest that’s likely right concerning the founders.

And the death panel stuff was just a ridiculous attempt to scare people. Medicare providers are tasked with providing end-of-life guidance. There was a plan to have that a more prominent task for providers and the senate removed that from the bill. It never was death panels, it was Palin's writers trying to scare scare people.

This is where the SCOTUS in Roe v. Wade were grossly in error and negligent in their interpretation of the Constitution. The authors that penned our Constitution did not feel the need to define when life began because only Godless men need that defined for them...

"Why are both sides always labeled by the extreme?"

I don't care if you call yourself a lil pony or Karl Marx hisself...... screw your life up as much as you like, just so the insanity doesn't touch me, I. Don't. Care.

But that's not what's happening. There is only ONE group actively trying to take my freedoms and my rights, even my property. Getting tired of the "both sides do it" BS and the "I still have my rights" BS as you see attack after attack on those rights from THIS administration.... which some clearly voted for. You should ignore that. Look the other way, move along, nothing to see here....

And if you can't clearly see and admit these people YOU voted for have FUBARed everything they have touched in just a matter of months (if not intentionally sabotaged such as open borders, identity politics, race relations, Afghanistan, etc. etc.) then you too are part of the problem.

Maybe Foxworthy should do a "You might be a Marxist/Globalist" bit. First line would be "if you voted for Biden and think you made a good decision....." or "if you think they AREN'T coming after your rights...." or "if you think it's the Right that are the fascist dictators...." or "white rage and Trump voters are the worst threat to the country since 9/11 and the Civil War..." or " we should defund the police...."

Could do this all day..... as stated above.... no ammo shortage there..... right now there is one group of people that are pumping out stupid and anti-American every minute. And I'm seeing some embrace it.

Maybe the hard core leftists AREN'T the majority of Dems. It is certainly those who are attacking ME and my rights, and I take such attacks personally. But if the soft squishy don't want to get involved beta middle don't stand up to them and tell them to sit down and STF up.... then yeah, they really are all in the same pool and will be treated as such. That's a decision THEY have to make. But for many they just won't.... or can't. And honestly I don't know which is worse.... apathy or fear.

From: HDE

Just so people know, the tenets of our civil society relative to the concept of "right and wrong" are found entombed in the very core beliefs of Judeo-Christian principles. The code of a civil society to determine that it's bad to kill somebody for their property that an Atheist believes is a good thing in society comes with it the understanding of a consequence. This consequence is from a deep held knowledge that an omnipotent being will sit in judgement one day for all humans past, present, and future. This is true in many other cultures that have an afterlife belief.

This fear of a consequence does not come from man, because as the Atheist believes that once you die, you die. There is no afterlife, their is no cognitive recollection of mortal memory. You simply break down to the basic elements you're made up of. According to this belief, it would be more prudent to live life to the fullest in regard to the carnal state of man, nearly equal to that of any animal, by taking advantage of those around you to experience as much "joy" as you can. The Atheist doesn't because of an innate fear of the consequence not issued by man. If man's laws execute you for misdeeds, so what. It doesn't matter because your cognitive processes cease anyway. Wanting to do good comes from a higher authority other than man.

This is why the SCOTUS jurists in Roe v. Wade got it wrong big time.

What nonsense. If an atheist doesn't believe in the afterlife, the only thing they have is this life. And in this life, the only external bounds they have come from the laws of man. Secondarily, one does not have to believe in god or an afterlife to see value in many judeo-christian principles. You are just projecting.

4Nolz, "do you consider Obamacare a success? My insurance premiums have tripled.Misinformation my butt.If you really did have input you sure didn't improve things.I guess you are the first person I've seen that considered the impact a positive one."

You sure do jump to conclusions a lot. I didn't have input on Obamacare but our office did. They took a plan we created - The Prescription for Pennsylvania- and reviewed it to see if there were pieces worth including in their plan. And, while there were positives to Obamacare there were also shortcomings. So while I do consider some parts of Obamacare a success I do not believe the entire package was at all. But more people did get insurance, people with pre-existing conditions could not be denied coverage, and health insurance was more affordable for some.

On the other hand health care costs rose for others as insurers exited the market, stopped getting reimbursed for cost-sharing reductions and concerns about the long-term viability (based on Republican's never-ending threats to dismantle the program) caused concern and fears. The mandate was wrong and some people lost hours (and income) or jobs due to the 50 employee rule.

Aside from all that, everything you said in your original post is absolutely misinformation.

Hence, the Marxist effort to become godless, as was done in the French Revolution, and history has graphically recorded the horrors and lack of freedom that produced.

I know plenty of words. You libs are the ones who won't acknowledge them or work feverishly to redefine them. I've only used accurate and descriptive words to draw attention to the fact that it is only the weak and pathetic who would utilize government policy to advocate for the killing of the innocent. Only the weak would use the legal system to steal from the producers to give to the non-producers. And the fact that you actually believe in what you're doing makes you pathetic - look up the definition, it's accurate.

And my equations aren't biased as much as they are discerning. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it probably isn't a horse. My description about your voiced beliefs being socialistic (and therefore anti-American) are accurate.

You said atheists do not have a fear of consequences that come from man because they do not believe in an after life. Given that, the only consequences they have to fear are those of man. Your position makes no sense.

But to your point, you can have 2 people who make the same moral decisions but for different reasons. Many atheists follow most of the 10 commandments simply because they see it as the right thing to do. Some do it out of a fear of god and possible repercussions in an afterlife that may or may not exist. Based on my life experience, I'd much rather put my faith in someone who subscribes to doing the right thing for intrinsic reasons than out of fear. It seems to make for a more durable resolve.

This business owner drew her own line in the sand. I'm curious if this will become more popular and widespread?

Florida restaurant owner posts sign telling Biden supporters to 'take business elsewhere'

The sign has received mixed reactions

By Andrew Mark Miller | Fox News

A Florida restaurant owner raised eyebrows after posting a sign outside the front door telling Biden supporters to dine elsewhere, citing his recent handling of the American military withdrawal from Afghanistan.

"If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere," a sign posted outside the Debary Diner in Debary, Florida said, according to Fox 35 Orlando.

"It was the only thing I felt like I could do," said the restaurant’s owner, Angie Ugarte.

Ugarte, who has run the diner for five years, added that she was "angry" after learning about the 13 service members killed by a suicide bombing last week.

She added that many of her regular customers are veterans and has dedicated an entire wall in her restaurant to honoring veterans and their families.

"If you really, really still stand behind what’s allowed this to happen and the way it happened — which was unnecessary — then I really don’t want to be associated with you in any way and I certainly don’t want your business," she explained to FOX 35 News.

Customer reactions have been mixed, with some thinking that Ugarte can serve whomever she pleases and others saying they don’t support the move.

"I’ve had people come to the door and look at it and turn around and walk away. And I’ve had people come into the kitchen while I’m cooking and say, ‘Hey, I love your sign,’" Ugarte said.

Resident Louis Vasquez told Fox 35 News, "I wouldn’t go there. I don’t appreciate it," while another resident, Serenity Smith said, Ugarte "has the right to not let anybody in the restaurant that supports a certain view."

When asked how long the sign will stay up, Ugarte gave no specific timeline and pointed out that there are Americans still currently stranded in Afghanistan.

This is just the latest from our elected officials. We can go down a list of how they have screwed up the entire country. Obama tells our troops to just deal with the VA, combat, and this famous quote: "you know what you signed up for." He then welcomes BLM terrorist group to the Oval Office, but not the families of slain police officers. That started the ball rolling. Common Core is pushed through by radical progressives into our school system. It is like making 3 lefts to make a right. The dumbing down of America has begun in our youth's education. Factor in the embracement of 72 different sexual orientations, the acceptance of drag queens and phallus wearing monkey men reading to toddlers, California teaching 8th graders that anal sex should be explored and that you don't need to tell your parents about receiving contraceptives, or injections at school. Paying people 3x-4x of what their salary is to keep them home, instead of going back to work, all at the expense of those who stayed working, or went right back to work, after the fear agenda of the SCAMdemic subsided. Destroying a booming economy to derail a President who finally did what he said and focused on America. Repaying Big Pharma with mandatory vaccines after the above mentioned President took them to task for escalating drug prices such as insulin and the Epi-pen, and selling drugs manufactured here cheaper to foreign countries than to our citizens. And finally, disastrous foreign policy, including the wanton loss of our service members, to appease our enemies. May God bless their souls. Patriots, We The People, can only take so much.

Reports that we had a Predator drone with a lock on the Kabul airport suicide bomber prior to his attack but permission to fire wasn't granted. Haven't seen it verified but the guy saying it isn't exactly Alex Jones.

It's ex Deputy Assistant SecDef under Bush Pardo-Maurer.

Could be true or false or definitely could be more complicated than that. If true, it should be surprising but unfortunately it won't be surpising.

"

Just to keep things based in reality - Trump negotiated the end of our involvement in Afghanistan in February, 2020. He agreed to immediately reduce the number of service members. He released 5,000 Taliban prisoners. And he agreed to have all US service members, civilian and military contractors out of the country within 14 months of the agreement date (which should have been May 2021).

63 military members died in Afghanistan while Trump was President. Following your logic, everyone that voted for Trump shares responsibility for that.

Service members died in Afghanistan under four administrations. Their deaths are all tragic and many could have been prevented if any of the previous administrations had ended our operations in that country. There's plenty of blame to go around for both parties.

6 lies Joe Biden told about Afghanistan

By Post Editorial Board September 1, 2021 7:44pm Updated

How can any American believe anything President Biden says after he’s lied so blatantly about an Afghanistan evacuation he claims was an “extraordinary success”?

LIE: “Americans understand we’re going to try and get it done before Aug. 31,” President Biden told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Aug. 19. “And if there are American citizens left, we’re going to stay until we get them all out.” He reiterated the promise the next day at the White House: “But let me be clear, any American who wants to come home, we will get you home.”

TRUTH: Even Biden himself admits Americans remain stranded in Afghanistan as he withdrew the last US forces before getting them home. “Ninety percent of Americans in Afghanistan who wanted to leave were able to leave,” he said Tuesday. US Central Command head Gen. Frank McKenzie confirmed the day before that some Americans trying to escape couldn’t get to the Kabul airport — and the last five jets left without a single American on board.

LIE: “We’re making the same commitment,” Biden said Aug. 20, to Afghans who assisted America in the war effort, “those Afghans who have worked alongside us, served alongside of us, gone into combat with us and provided invaluable assistance to us,” he said. “They’re equally important, almost.”

TRUTH: On Wednesday, a senior State Department official confessed to NBC News that “the majority of Afghans who helped” the United States “didn’t make it out of Kabul.” The official didn’t have the number of special immigrant visa applicants who remain in Afghanistan but said “it’s the majority of them.”

LIE: “The United States stands by its commitment that we’ve made to these people, and it includes other vulnerable Afghans, such as women leaders and journalists,” Biden said Aug. 20.

TRUTH: Team Biden didn’t even ensure American-employed journalists made it to safety. Five hundred US Agency for Global Media journalists, working for outlets such as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and their family members were left to the mercy of the Taliban, who have already begun bullying Afghan reporters. Sources told USA Today that “miscommunication” and “the Taliban not clearing them for exit” were to blame. Just 50 US-sponsored journalists made it out — thanks to other governments, not our own.

LIE: Asked by a reporter July 8, “Do you see any parallels between this withdrawal and what happened in Vietnam,” Biden was indignant. “None whatsoever. Zero.”

TRUTH: Not even a month after Biden spoke those words, pictures came from Kabul of a US helicopter flying over the American embassy. Nearly 200 Americans fled the Baron Hotel on Chinooks when they couldn’t reach the Kabul airport, just 650 feet away, any other way.

LIE: Biden vowed to continue providing the Afghan army with air support. “I’ll insist we continue to keep the commitments we made of providing close air support, making sure that their air force functions and is operable,” he said Aug. 10. He’d made the promise to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in a July 23 phone call that was leaked Wednesday. “We will continue to provide close air support,” Biden said. “And all the way through the end of August, and who knows what after that.”

TRUTH: The Wall Street Journal reported Aug. 14, “In the wake of President Biden’s withdrawal decision, the US pulled its air support, intelligence and contractors servicing Afghanistan’s planes and helicopters. That meant the Afghan military simply couldn’t operate anymore.” That puts paid to Biden’s repeated claim that the Afghan army simply folded because it didn’t want to fight.

LIE: “Your own intelligence community has assessed that the Afghan government will likely collapse,” a reporter told the president July 8, to which a defensive Biden responded, “That is not true.” He added that “the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”

TRUTH: In fact, Biden knew the Taliban were overtaking the Afghan government — and asked Ghani to lie about it. The perception “is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.” Ghani gave him the facts: “We are facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least 10-15,000 international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis thrown into this.” Biden ignored them.

The Voters will surely make Mr Biden pay and if I recall Madam Harris was not much cared for in even democratic circles in 2020. I think what really hurt Harria was he nasty line questioning in the Kavanaugh hearings for the high court. This show the true evil nature of this woman.

Mr Biden will not do anything for the peoples in the south who were decimated in the south by Ida. So people when they age become like a sweet child others become nasty and spiteful.

They are not much better as a whole but the Democrats are no longer "Liberals" they are Marxist/leftist. My father inlaw whom I really like voted for Obama n Biden. I asked him one day why he voted for people that believe the opposite of what he believes..he couldn't answer me.

I voted via mail-in ballet in Wisconsin and never fully trusted the process.

I am for doing away with secret ballots and having one's vote be fully visible to him or her self, as well as every one else. If nothing else, this would allow for people to ensure that their vote was properly registered. Additionally, it would bring the voting rolls fully into the light, so they might be properly expunged of illegal votes.

Barring this, we will just have to continually deal with the speculation of voter fraud.

There was attempted mail-in fraud in our village of 200 voters. We purged 49 people off our checklist. People who died, moved, etc. One couple attempted to vote using our address, and my wife, the supervisor of the checklist caught it. You send mail-ins to every voter and they end up in mailboxes that are no longer used by the rightful voters, you have the ingredients for massive fraud nationwide if those maintaining checklists don’t stay on top of it. The solution is simple, either get off your dead ass and vote in person with ID, or go absentee with ID. Those who don’t want ID in the name of whatever are either fools or believe the end justifies the means. Remember the Columbia record deal, 12 albums for .99? They sent out mass mailings that ended up in every mailbox. People would scoff them up from every mailbox, collect dozens of albums, free, and Columbia went broke trying to get their money from people who never ordered them. Same deal. It was rampant when I was in college in the sixties.

All my life, until recently, you went to vote in person. If you couldn't be available or were in the hospital, you could vote by absentee ballot. This worked fine for years. The only update necessary is to require an ID to vote.

03-Sep-21
The felon with 300 ballots was for the recall in CA. It doesn't matter if he had 3,000 ballots, there is no way they could have been mailed in and counted because there are checks and balances. Nobody can just mail in ballots and expect them to be counted.

To TGBow's point, I care a lot about facts. They are the basis for sound decision making. And as far as mail-in fraud or voter fraud, the facts are crystal clear - there was no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. Were there ones and twos here and there absolutely. That's been proven. But there was nothing anywhere near the scale to change the outcome of the election. Even Bill Barr said that.

What's interesting to me is that according to some, or many, of you all Democrats lie, many Republicans lie, the media lies, the generals lie, past administration officials from both parties lie....yet the one beacon of truth is Trump. A man who conned countless people out of their money, lied virtually every time he spoke in public, had 13 failed businesses and six bankruptcies and has changed his political affiliation at least four times - from Republican to Reform to Democrat and back to Republican.

The Biden media propagandists are already moving past Afghanistan to protect the limp noodle, the glaring double standards the "journalists" in America's media exhibit are a national disgrace.

As far as Biden owning those deaths in Afghanistan, he owns them as well as the COVID deaths that have ensued since he was elected. The media, lib progressives and other water carriers set the narrative blaming Trump for every COVID death under his watch. Despite the fact that many liberal progressives and leftists were on the evening news nightly saying Trump was over reacting when he initially implemented travel restrictions. All those naysayers don't want you to remember any of that though, rewriting the narrative as they go.

You know the media is biased when the leftists are silent about the narrative being splashed across our nightly "news". If Trump or any other "Republican" were in office and had handled that Afghanistan draw down so ham handedly, it would be the leading 20 minutes of "news" on every one of the network "news" nightly programs from now till the next election. Imagine the reaction if the media was so blatantly biased the other direction.

When Bush was in office he did a few decent things but he blowed money like a Leftist...and gave us the unconstitutional Patriot Act. I dont care who they are if they support taking away more freedom and taxing and regulating us to hell n back then Im not for them.

On another note, how's Biden doing on squashing COVID in it's tracks the day you guys elected him? That's what he promised. Statistically, the progressive electorate is a huge chunk of the number still unvaccinated. I'm surprised that the progressive media isn't hammering him with his daily COVID death count on that, ala Trump.

Has the progressive left figured out the "root cause" of the non-crisis on our southern border yet? I'm sure it had nothing to do with the campaign promises noodles was spouting from his basement campaign headquarters/hideout prior to the election.

Russian collusion, talk to noodles about his supporting the russian pipeline but not our own. Then there is that classic slap down OPEC laid on him when he went crawling to them asking them to ramp up oil production.

You water carriers for Biden/Harris crack me up, keep trying to defend that vote, the amusement factor is priceless. Biden is defeated, it's in his body language when he leaves his pressers without answering any tough questions. What a disgrace, turning his back, shoulders slumped, slinking away .....

Of course we have to have some form of taxatuon...Fair Tax, but tje problem will always be politicians extorting it so we would have to have a cap. As of today, if they quit frivolous spending they could get by with way less than they spend..at least cut it in half. Public roads, justice system, military...that would have to be supported by the public. Social Security should go because its just a form of extorted money from us...unless they made it voluntary. Police. Fire dept, would be supported by taxes. Unnecessary regulations like bogus environmental crap..not common sense laws like dumping chemicals into the water. Government seizing peoples land because a kangaroo rat exist on their land,ect. Even with funding the military, roads, police, ect, it WOULD NOT take the amount of tax dollars they take from us today. Im not gonna name them all but you can look up all the frivolous things we pay taxes to support. Again I say...LOOK at California...the state your president said he wanted to model the country after, how are they doing? Its a mess. That should tell you what happens with Big Gov systems. Both parties are good at blowing our money. BTW, I mentioned above that honest Abe instated a Federal income-tax during the war...the SC ruled it unconstitutional. There is a reason we didnt have it before. But, so many people have been conditioned to think that we have to have the gov to powder our azz from cradle to grave I doubt it will ever go away. Ive yet to see an example of a country that adapted a Socialist, Communist, Marxist government that prospered. When you wake up one day and you paying 75 % of your income to the gov...dont complain

The Flat Person from KS has made a very unjust representation of Marxism. You would have to look hard for such a corrupted explanation of Marxism.

The manifesto was created by two wretched souls. Communism and Socialism is most indeed routed in Marxism. Where the idea is based!

Marxism: Socialism

“Much like communism, socialism is a system of politics and economics with roots in Marxist ideals. In socialism, a central government owns all means of wealth, but individuals can still own property. Additionally, unlike the violent uprisings that can arise with communism, socialism typically occurs more organically through reforms and changes with an elected government. While a true socialist society doesn’t exist, a few close runner ups are Norway and Denmark. However, these governments still have capitalist sectors.“

The Flatworlder has tried to give false Prophet here.

" Nobody can just mail in ballots and expect them to be counted."

Maybe, but if the machine is connected to a computer, like Dominion Voting Systems, all the counts across many states make up for slow Democrat vote counters, in unison. Even Elizabeth Warren complained about that.

The federal government shouldn't be collecting taxes from individuals, but from the states, IMHO. After all, the states created the federal government in 1787.

Mr Lundell has a cloned external hard drive of data that was pulled by a Dominion whistle blower.

Most people think the states that are doing vote Audits are looking overturn vote totals.

Not what is happening. They are showing the data and how votes were corrupted so state legislatures can get state law changed by early 2022 deadlines for next federal and state elections.

We wouldn't even be talking about Biden today if he hadn't put his ineptitude on full display prior to the election. Talk about a bought and paid for pResidency. The African American community vowed to sit out the election, ensuring a Democrat loss, unless an African American woman was on the ticket with him. What a toss up - Stacy Abrams or Kamala Harris? I'm surprised the dumba$$es didn't pick the white chick who claimed she is black that was in the news for awhile. He wasn't elected on his competence, he was "elected" on his willingness to bend to the coercion.

The water carriers here would have you forget that fact.

Markwayne Mullin, a Republican Representative in Congress from Oklahoma, resurfaced earlier this week after effectively disappearing on his own unofficial rescue mission to the region. Mullin had reportedly been seeking to bring a large amount of cash into neighboring Tajikistan, where he planned to charter a helicopter to fly across the border into Afghanistan.

"I am heading home... Have we been helping get Americans out of Afghanistan, yes. Is the mission continuing, yes. Am I missing, no," he wrote in a post on Instagram on Wednesday. "Am I extremely disappointed in how we (United States) left Americans behind… that would be an understatement."

Mr Biden will free up the cash we have transferred to AFG accounts worldwide over these past years. You can bet Joe Woke will give carrot to the Taliban for Americans. He will pay ransoms before they start posting videos!

At the same time he will start his Drone Wars. Not going shut down the MIC .

"Nowhere does it say the government can seize land for endangered species. "

Correct.... technically. That would require them to actually purchase the property. They don't HAVE to. The other half of this split hair is they can and DO tell you not to use said land as you needed because of said kangaroo rat, just like they owned it.

Win-win for government. They still get control (the real purpose) and aren't out any money but for those jobs and industries which profit off that control. And the property owner still gets tagged with taxes, maintenance and the lower property values that go along with being tagged with an environmental "regulation". Great little arrangement.

But back on the OP tracks...... Biden is a lying, grifting POS and for sale whore. Always has been and always will be. Dems voted for him knowing he's been bought and paid for, even lied FOR him when they knew it was a lie. But thought he was their ticket to control, power, rolling back freedoms and rights. Good luck with that. One can bail off that bandwagon at any time though..... that is, if they really want to. All it takes is a bit of honestly and a pinch of contrition.... back to that responsibility thing...... if you voted for him you aren't exactly blameless. Unless you were blindfolded there were no surprises. Honestly "I messed it up" is a LOT more than you are EVER going to get from House Plant and his merry band......

The OP was about "incompetent leadership". Already stated I think the Dems direction and plans are baseline evil..... it is the common citizen who own this country, there are no "levels" of citizens rank. They own the government, government operates at their pleasure. But the government thinks it is they who own the citizens. And that pesky Bill of Rights and Constitution that grants from God and not government, the CITIZENS personal sovereign power.... gets in the way of that. Evil people who ALWAYS justify their evil as "it's for your own good..." That's the current "leadership".

WRT the "incompetent" part, that's pretty much our Ace in the Hole. The vast majority of them clearly have never held a real job where you are held responsible for your actions and judged solely by your results, not your "intentions". They are cocktail party classroom academics and elitists with little to no common sense or practical knowledge of how to pull off their coup. Having lived in their elitist bubbles their whole life surrounded only by other elitists, they are pretty much clueless as to the real world around them, they see themselves as above that. And honestly could care less about those "other" people, commoners and "deplorables".... just as long as THEY look good to other elitists. And don't have to be responsible when they are wrong. Often quite literally.... dead wrong.

No clearer example than the Afghanistan Surrender. A much clearer, bloody and more dramatic example than "defund the police...." "mostly peaceful protests" or Open Borders, etc. What we need is less "woke" leaders and generals..... we need core people to "Wake TFU!" No more apathy. No more fear.

Action people. Or they will be proven right that people will give up rights and freedom in order to be herded like sheep and "taken care of". And Government OF the people BY the people will be no more.

Action guys Would agree TD more what we need.

One has to look very close when electing so called action guys. There are now more and more good ones, Crenshaw, Zinke, Green, Earnst, etc.

Lot of chicken hawks out there. Do a tour and they think they are John Kerry ready to screw up for 40yrs in Gvt. Not a leader a war activist.

Dems had prolly the best middle road person in Tulsi Gabbards. Dems did not want her type Leadership and they preferred Jobama and got him. She is the one that exposed Harris for the empty pant suit she is. Proven true by the fact that Newsom wants her no where near him i on the recall election stump in CA.

We can hopefully get thru to Joe Manchin and stop the madness. Maybe he has a sense that the republic is Teter ing on the edge.

If a GOPer takes CA which i find extraordinary, its a whole new game in DC. Mr Biden will likely be hampered in many way to get much done. Thats 3 yrs where it could get worse in world, much worse. I really hope it does not and Mr Joe comes back to where he sat on the fence for fifty years, right in middle. Hiding in plain sight?

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/state-department-blocking-private-evacuation-flights-afghanistan

""The State Department's delays are recklessly endangering American lives, three different individuals involved in the private evacuation effort told Fox News.

Rick Clay, who runs the private rescue group PlanB, told Fox News that the State Department is the only thing preventing the flights he's organizing from leaving Afghanistan.

Two other American individuals separately involved in evacuation efforts, whom Fox News is not naming to avoid jeopardizing ongoing rescue efforts, similarly said that the State Department is the sole entity preventing their charter flights from leaving Afghanistan.

"This is zero place to be negotiating with American lives. Those are our people standing on the tarmac and all it takes is a f****ing phone call," one of those individuals, who has been integral to private evacuation efforts from Afghanistan, told Fox News.

"If one life is lost as a result of this, the blood is on the White House's hands. The blood is on their hands," that individual said, adding: "It is not the Taliban that is holding this up – as much as it sickens me to say that – it is the United States government."

That individual suggested that the State Department's obstruction is motivated in part by embarrassment that private individuals are rescuing Americans that the U.S. government left behind.

Those seeking clearance to land in Qatar were informed by military channels that they must first go through the State Department to gain approval, an email reviewed by Fox News shows.

Clay has a manifest of 4,500 names of U.S. citizens, green card holders, SIVs and refugees trying to get state-side. So far, they've given the State Department 800 names for a first round of flights. Fox News has reviewed that manifest, which confirms Clay's account. ""
