Pardon my insouciance but this appears to be the same scheme that Zero and Billary used after the killings in Benghazi – ie send out the talking heads to deflect and cast blame on others while the chief frauds hide out under cover of darkness. Every Republican in the house and Senate better be screaming from the rafters over this, the border, the continued holding of the political prisoners from January 6, the continued targeting of conservatives by the DOJ, FBI, CIA and and the rest of the alphabet soup agencies.
But I’m not holding my breath for that. There’s enough wrong going on for them to keep raising h*ll until this installed regime has been upped and Af-gone-istan.
Even more egregiously to add insult to injury, we have 20 years of blood and treasure flushed down the toilet and all while attempting to hang it on President Donald John Trump. If this doesn’t wake up the masses, maybe we are done!
According to an early Sunday report from Axios, Af-gone-istan fell to the Taliban much faster than President Joe Biden and his top military leaders predicted. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley told a bipartisan group of senators during a Sunday call that a past assessment of how soon the terrorist groups will reemerge in Af-gone-istan will drastically speed up due to the events over the past week.
On the call with Milley, Lindsey Graham, Def. Sec. Lloyd Austin and Sec. of State Antony Blinken asked if they will revise the assessment given to Congress in June that classified a ‘medium’ risk of terrorist group reconstituting within two years of withdrawal. It didn’t help any that Joint Chief Chair Mark Milley told senators that the U.S. Homeland is now at greater risk from Af-gone-istan terror groups in a major blow to American efforts following 20 years of fighting in the country.
Absolutely incredible to witness that while dementia Joe and his cohort giggle-queen lead the fools, the State Department has learned absolutely nothing. Blinken, Blinken and Nod, is a mumbling, blinkin’ irrational hollow suit that is proving he truly isn’t up to the task of fixing anything. Sadly, this is of no surprise. Anyone remember John Heinz-Baked-Beans Kerry emoting ‘Af-gone-istan was the “good war?” – Ermmm, Rrrright.
Sundance, Conservative Treehouse: ‘Kabul Falls, Ghani Flees, Embassy Evacuated, Airport Siege, Biden on Vacation’ …
Throughout the night and [yesterday] U.S. personnel were evacuated from the embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The U.S. flag has been removed. The airport in Kabul is no longer safe and flights have been suspended. Afghanistan President Ghani has fled the country. The Taliban are on the streets of Kabul as fighting around the airport continues.
U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken is a stuttering and stammering mess as he appears on television attempting to obfuscate the complete FUBAR that is unfolding. Joe Biden is being kept hidden in his bunker. U.S. personnel who did not make it to the airport have been told to shelter in place and await rescue. Some reports of negotiations with Taliban leadership for safe passage for Americans. The embassy is being abandoned.
Why the rapid collapse? “In the wake of President Biden’s withdrawal decision, the U.S. pulled its air support, intelligence and contractors servicing Afghanistan’s planes and helicopters. That meant the Afghan military simply couldn’t operate anymore. The same happened with another failed American effort, the South Vietnamese army in the 1970s, said retired Lt. Gen. Daniel Bolger, who commanded the U.S.-led coalition’s mission to train Afghan forces in 2011-2013.” (WSJ link)
Now it is a mad scramble to protect the remaining Americans and evacuate everything. The U.S. diplomatic presence in Afghanistan has been withdrawn. Remaining U.S. personnel are receiving the following instructions from the State Dept.:
(Via Daily Mail) – The US Ambassador to Afghanistan and some of his staff were seen fleeing their Kabul workplace with the stars and stripes flag Sunday – signaling that the US embassy has closed as the Taliban invades the city.
Ambassador Ross Wilson and the flag were both seen arriving at Kabul Airport, as other Americans still in the country were ordered to shelter in place, with shots being fired at the city’s airport. Embassy staff will be evacuated within the next 72 hours, as the Taliban makes stunning advances into the Afghan capital city, which worst-case scenarios estimated lasting at least 30 days after the US withdrew from it.
An official security alert was issued by the US government after shots were fired at the airport, sparking fears American jets could be shot down as they try to flee the country, which the Taliban have vowed to rename the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. (read more)

Pure speculation from yours truly but the demented village idiot and his giggle-queen are the sponge so to speak, to soak up the nuclear fallout from the OBO#44 policy objectives. That’s their role, nothing more, nothing less than that, thereby approaching all “dementia Joe failures” from inflation to Af-gone-istan, emanate from this angle.
Consider the collapse of the Af-gone-istan government was entirely predictable when considering everything at stake. Maybe the ensuing chaos and political damage were inevitable consequences of any withdrawal, and the decision to unleash the chaos and damage now was made because village idiot / giggle queen are both expendable. As inferred from the above reasoning, perhaps there are other reasons why the current crisis has been allowed to explode.
What we certainly do know is that whatever political fallout cannot be contained by the media or deflected, unfairly, to the former administration will be attached to the political ashes of Current Occupant before they are dumped overboard.
Politics most times, can be awfully debilitating.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-president Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
