    Biden Pleads and Bribes Taliban to Spare U.S. Embassy and 2,000 Americans
    August 12, 2021 5:00 PM BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

    Adopting Obama’s foreign policy of appeasing Islamists is really working out for Joe. And America.

    “The likelihood that there’s going to be a Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely,” Biden claimed not all that long ago.

    Now he’s pleading with the Taliban to spare our embassy and avoid another Benghazi, instead of doing the sane thing and evacuating now.

      This makes me sick to my stomach and almost breaks my heart. This is going to be a bloodbath and he won’t care.

        Totally true. But the area is a cesspool of politics and crazies and we, just like all others before us, were dragged in. Just like Viet Nam we thought we could bring democracy and western civilization to them, and we were wrong.

          Well, I think we could have won, but the higher up didn’t really want to. First, burn all the poppy fields, I think it is, not guard them. The rules of engagement were ridiculous and we were trying our guys who killed the enemy. The goal wasn’t to win. And, you are right, they were not advanced enough to become a democracy or be civilized yet. I just hate what has happened to our military guys who were and now are there.

        How TOTALLY true. Bill Roggio has been in the reporting business since the beginning of Bush’s wars. He knows the wars backward and forward and tells the truth no matter whose toes he steps on. And speaking of Bush, has he made even a peep on this travesty.

        The amount of materiel left behind that the Taliban has laughingly walked off with is humongous. And we expect them to play by some rules…good grief! They know suckers when they see them.

        Wasn’t Obama partially elected in 2008 because of his promise to get us out of Afghanistan? He likely would have had the same type of debacle and humiliation as Biden’s. But let’s get real. EVERYONE knows that Afghanistan is the place where empires go to die. The Afghans are ungovernable and have a Jihad culture which is opposed to the West on just about every front. It’s a rare occasion where a person can be found who can think for himself.

        The Taliban regime will go back to grisly mass murders in their football stadiums, and the oppression of girls and women will be even more severe this time around simply because the Taliban is dedicated to a culture which views females as dirt.

        The exit could have been handled properly if we had competent military brass who had the guts AND INTELLIGENCE to do their job. WHAT STUPID PEOPLE!

    Mornin’ All. I haven’t checked the weatherguessers’ best guess yet today. It feels just slightly cooler, still humid though. I have to check and see where that storm is headed. They are coming next week to trim the trees. That is really my main concern when a hurricane comes through so I am glad they are going to do it.

    My son will be back in our country in less than 10 days. I just keep praying. I am worried almost as much about our faux administration as I am about the Taliban.

    Well, I would stay home today, except I am out of lemon juice. What a disaster. I need it for my tea. So, I guess I have to make a run to the store.

    Hope everyone has a nice day. And, Czarina, hope that storm doesn’t hit your area.

    Uptown chaos and crime force cancellation of another popular festival
    Written by Tom Steward | August 12, 2021

    There goes another one. The organizers of the Minneapolis Greek Festival scheduled for September 9-11 in Uptown Minneapolis have cancelled the popular celebration due to the continuing violent crime and anarchy plaguing the area.

    And as of yet, the people of Minneapolis haven’t thrown their weak and complicit government out on its rear. Will they ever see the light? Possibly these type of failures are coming soon to a city near you.

      Oh, well. Just a bunch of white people anyway. Probably were not being guilty enough.

        Exactly! The good citizens of Minneapolis had better figure out and soon that they are in a war. And it’s to their death if the other side wins. Just hoping it will all resolve itself is foolish thinking.

    Well, I went to Publix to get my lemon juice and the space was empty. So I asked at the customer service counter and she checked and said it was in a different spot and had been discontinued. So, it was marked down and I bought about 6 bottles. I need to figure out how much I actually use each month because I should probably buy more.

      Dear Aus,

      Are you planning on freezing some of it, say, portioned in an ice cube tray? The expiration date is a good indicator of when the flavor will begin to change, if not frozen. I had that experience with lime juice.

      Don’t want to ruin a great cuppa tea!

    Censored by Proxy: Shiva’s amazing, Blacked-Out election story
    Joe Dan Gorman | Posted on August 12, 2021

    “I watched a significant amount of Mike Lindel’s Cyber Symposium… There were a lot of great experts and a lot of great presentations. But one of the more impactful moments for me came from Dr. Shiva. The man is a genius, let’s just begin there. And his story is even more remarkable than his résumé. A definite MUST WATCH.”

    Stella, I keep forgetting to mention the picture at the top. I think it is especially beautiful. Honestly, I am not sure if it is a painting or a photograph.
