FOX News Dirtbag Chris Wallace Tries to Blame Trump for Biden’s Afghanistan Debacle (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

In March 2009 Barack Obama reached out to the Taliban terrorist organization for peace talks.

Joe Biden at the time told reporters “only 5% of the Taliban is incorrigible.”

In August 2010 Barack Obama removed the Taliban from the national terror list.

In May 2012 Barack Obama rewarded the Taliban terrorists with their own office in Qatar for peace talks.

Also in May 2012 the Taliban bombed Kabul two hours after Obama announced peace talks with the terrorist group.

In 2012 the Obama administration even paid for the Taliban peace office in Qatar.

In 2013 Barack Obama secretly released five deadly Taliban prisoners from Gitmo in exchange for peace talks.

In 2014 the Taliban officially released a statement on victory in Afghanistan 6 years into the Obama presidency.

On Sunday FOX News host Chris Wallace blamed the Trump Administration for situation in Afghanistan.

This is after years of Obama and Biden appeasing the Taliban, releasing their top operatives from prison and building them an office for peace talks in Qatar.

Mediaite reported:

Fox News’ Chris Wallace pressed former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on how much responsibility for the situation lies with the former Trump administration…

…Asked what he thinks about Biden blaming him and Trump for the chaos, Pompeo snapped back at the president’s “pathetic blame-shifting,” and he argued that the Taliban’s insurgency didn’t happen while Trump was still in power.

“Every president confronts challenges,” he said. “This president confronted a challenge in Afghanistan, he has utterly failed to protect the American people from this challenge.”

Wallace kept up the pressure by noting that Pompeo struck an agreement with the Taliban last year to pull U.S. forces out of Afghanistan by May. Wallace also rolled footage of Trump complaining about the U.S’ “ridiculous” continued presence in the region.

This really is something to behold.

Republicans blast Biden for ‘unmitigated disaster of epic proportions’ in Afghanistan: ‘Why is Joe Biden in hiding?’ — Conservative Review

The Taliban overtook Afghanistan with relative ease and lightning quickness. Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani fled to Tajikistan, and American personnel was forced to evacuate the U.S. embassy in Kabul on helicopters. The presidential palace in Kabul was “handed over” to the Taliban on Sunday. Republican lawmakers are hammering President Joe Biden and his administration on the U.S. withdrawal, which has been labeled as “an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions” and compared to the capture of Saigon

Biden, who is at Camp David on a scheduled vacation, issued a statement on the dire situation in Afghanistan on Saturday, where he placed blame on his predecessor for the much-maligned withdrawal. Former President Donald Trump responded to Biden’s accusations by saying the current president “gets it wrong every time on foreign policy.”

It wasn’t only Trump who slammed Biden and his administration for the disheveled withdrawal from Afghanistan; several Republican lawmakers also torched the president. 

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.): “Joe Biden has been commander-in-chief for seven months – the current failure in Afghanistan falls squarely on his shoulders. His lack of leadership during this pivotal moment has been shameful – it has only served to embolden our adversaries and let down our allies.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.): “Ashraf Ghani has fled and Joe Biden is hiding. Pathetic. Why is Joe Biden in hiding? He should immediately address the nation and answer for the catastrophic situation in Afghanistan. Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio): “America’s in crisis. Afghanistan’s in chaos. Why’s Joe Biden on vacation?”

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas): “This is an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions. This will be a stain on Biden’s presidency and he will have blood on his hands.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.): “This is Joe Biden’s Saigon. A disastrous failure on the international stage that will never be forgotten – meanwhile Joe is on vacation.”

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.): “No person who calls themselves the President of the United States should be on vacation while the world crumbles down around them. The dereliction of duty continues.”

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: “No wonder he is hiding at Camp David. No teleprompter can give him the answers to the questions he would be asked today. What a disaster.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): “When the Biden Administration announced their Afghanistan pullout plan, several of us on the Intel Committee told them their predictions of what would happen next were complete fantasy. We are now witnessing how true our warnings to them were.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): “It is only a matter of time until al-Qaeda reemerges in Afghanistan and presents a threat to the American homeland and western world. President Biden seems oblivious to the terrorist threats that will come from a Taliban-run Afghanistan.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.): “The Biden Administration’s botched exit from Afghanistan including the frantic evacuation of Americans and vulnerable Afghans from Kabul is a shameful failure of American leadership. The United States had the capacity to avoid this disaster.”

The Biden Administration’s botched exit from Afghanistan including the frantic evacuation of Americans and vulnerab… https://t.co/n29wOKgUeq— Leader McConnell (@LeaderMcConnell) 1629052471.0

Two House Democrats even torpedoed Biden’s handling of the withdrawal, as reported by Fox News

Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas): “There’s no way to hide it. The situation in Afghanistan is another shame on this admin. Withdrawal was never going to be easy but it didn’t need to come to this. The US must do everything in its power to help our partners & allies to safety & protect our national security.”

Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.): “As a Gold Star son of the Vietnam War listening to the White House briefing on the Afghanistan War withdrawal, my heart particularly aches for the thousands of Gold Star families of an eerily similar and painful episode forty-six years later.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to spin the U.S. withdrawal out of Afghanistan by saying, “The President is to be commended for the clarity of purpose of his statement on Afghanistan and his action. The Taliban must know the world is watching its actions. We are concerned about reports regarding the Taliban’s brutal treatment of all Afghans, especially women and girls.”

The official Twitter account for the White House tweetedon Sunday, “This morning, the President and Vice President met with their national security team and senior officials to hear updates on the draw down of our civilian personnel in Afghanistan, evacuations of SIV applicants and other Afghan allies, and the ongoing security situation in Kabul.”

Former Ambassador to Afghanistan Questions Biden’s Ability to Lead

Trump calls for Biden to ‘resign in disgrace’ – Washington Times

Former President Donald Trump called on President Biden to “resign in disgrace” as the Taliban moved to control Afghanistan in response to the withdrawal of U.S. troops.

August 15 Evening Quotes of The Day

Sin Cannot Be Killed Easily
Romans 7:9–11; Colossians 3:5–11

Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who has once smitten a serpent, if he does not follow on his blow until he be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel. And so will he who undertakes to deal with sin and pursues it not constantly to death. Sin will after a while revive, and the man must die. It is a great and fatal mistake if we suppose this work will admit of any remissness or intermission.

The Folly of Going It Alone
Proverbs 11:14; 12:15; 15:22; 19:20; Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12–21

He who insists on being left to himself, without a director to guide him, is like an unowned tree by the wayside; however fruitful it may be, the travelers pick its fruit, and none of it ripens.

August 15 Evening Verse of The Day

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 8a84a94f-22ef-4640-b2d9-dd80973ab2ef-928-0000004d4be50896_file.jpg

14:18 is slow to anger Moses reminds Yahweh of how Yahweh has previously described His own character (see Exod 34:6–7). The promise Moses refers to here is one that only he and Yahweh witnessed. This makes Moses’s appeal personal.

forgiving sin and rebellion Moses now appeals to God’s own nature, which God personally revealed to Moses on Sinai (Exod 34:6–7).

on the sons The idea that later generations would be punished for the sins of others is qualified in Deuteronomy which implies that Yahweh would punish succeeding generations only if they repeated the sins of their ancestors (Deut 5:9–10; compare Ezek 18:4 and note). Although God is a God of forgiveness, he does not erase the consequences of iniquity—those last to the third and fourth generations.[1]

† 14:18 — “The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.”

When God speaks, do we hear a forgiving or demanding Father, intimate or distant Friend, patient or intolerant Teacher, gentle or angry Guide, understanding or insensitive Counselor, generous or reluctant Provider, or a faithful or inconsistent Sustainer?[2]

14:18 / The word for love is hesed, which also connotes constancy and loyalty and hence a kind of consistent action from God. Budd indicates that forgiving sin means taking away the punishment sin deserves (Numbers, p. 158). The verb nasa’ means “to lift up.” See Katherine Doob Sakenfeld, “The Problem of Divine Forgiveness in Numbers 14,” CBQ 37 (1975), pp. 317–30.[3]

18  The confession here is probably an old liturgical one; it is reflected at points throughout the OT. In fact, it is a shortened version of Exod. 34:6–7, which is part of the story of God’s forgiveness of the people after the incident of the golden calf.

The similarities between Exod. 34:6–7 and Num. 14:18 are far too great to be explained by chance, though the text in Numbers is several words shorter (see below). The verbs in both versions are participles, as is usually the case in confessions. Two balanced constructions describing Yahweh’s character begin the confession: he is slow of anger (’ereḵ-’appayim, lit., “long of nose”) and great of covenant loyalty (raḇ-ḥeseḏ). The term ḥeseḏ is one of the most studied terms in the Hebrew language. The basic meaning is faithfulness within a covenant structure, e.g., covenant loyalty. It is a relational term used to express both God’s loyalty to Israel and human loyalty both to Yahweh and to other humans. Exod. 34:6 adds ’ĕmeṯ, “truth, dependability,” as well as the clause “keeping covenant loyalty with thousands” (nōṣēr ḥeseḏ lā’ălāp̄îm) in v. 7, neither of which is in Numbers, perhaps because the author wished to hasten on to the forgiving nature of God.

bearing iniquity and rebellion (nōśē’ ‘āwōn wāp̄āšaʿ). When nāśā’ ‘āwōn is used with a human subject the meaning is usually that the person will bear the penalty of divine punishment. Can one say here that God has himself borne the penalty for sin or has taken it away? One cannot be certain of the dynamics of the divine forgiveness, but a meaning such as this may not be wide of the mark.37 The terms for sin are iniquity (‘āwōn), which usually has to do with willful destructive behavior, and rebellion (pešaʿ), which speaks of the breaking of a relationship. Exod. 34:7 adds a third term for sin, ḥaṭṭā’â, which usually refers to missing a goal.

but who will never completely leave them unpunished (wenaqqēh lō’ yenaqqeh). This translation, as well as NJPS (“yet not cancelling all punishment”), has the advantage of not requiring the insertion of the word guilty, which, though as old as the LXX, is not in the MT. The construction of the infinitive (naqqēh) plus the finite verb of the same root (yenaqqeh) is a common way of sharpening or emphasizing the verbal idea; in the case of niqqeh, “to declare innocent, leave unpunished.”

visiting (pōqēḏ). This verb has various meanings in Numbers (as elsewhere). In addition to its current sense of “visiting” or “inflicting,” it can mean “appoint” and “number.” Fathers … children … third and fourth generation—in Exod. 34:7 and the current verse the purpose of this seemingly harsh language is to affirm Yahweh’s right to judge as he sees fit. There seems little reason to try to make this language seem less threatening, although as early as Deut. 5:9–10 it is interpreted to mean that God punishes to the fourth generation those who “hate him,” i.e., those who continue to live in rebellious ways. Just as God’s mercy is great and his anger slow to kindle, because God is a just God, the guilty will be punished, even if this takes several generations. God’s mercy and his punishment are both awe-inspiring and to be taken earnestly. In the present context, although Moses does not wish to deny Yahweh’s awful judgment, he wishes to emphasize the divine mercy and covenant loyalty.[4]

What’s In Your Heart? — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

Then Jesus answered, ‘Woman you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed from that very hourMatthew 15:28

A Gentile woman asked Jesus to heal her daughter. At first Jesus ignored her, and then he rebuffed her. “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel,” he said. When the woman persisted, Jesus answered her, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs” (Matthew 15:21-28).

That sounds rude to me.

What would you have done?

I think I would have walked away in a huff saying to myself, “He’s no better than the rest of the Jews.”

Why did Jesus treat her that way? I’ve often wondered. It’s so unlike him!

We must take these verses in context. What had Jesus been speaking about? He had been teaching what makes a person clean or unclean in God’s eyes. The Jews considered all Gentiles unclean and called them “dogs” because they didn’t observe the Jewish rituals of cleanliness.

But Jesus wanted to show them that being clean before God is much more about what’s on the inside. “Out of the heart come evil thoughts that lead to evil acts. These are what makes a person unclean,” Jesus said. (Matthew 15:16-20).

How do we know what’s in a person’s heart? We don’t know until the heart spills over, like a cup that’s being bumped spills over with its contents.

Jesus knew what was in the woman’s heart. He knew that when he bumped her—as his harsh words would do–out of her heart would flow faith and good humor. She became the perfect object lesson to what Jesus had just been talking about.

God wants reality, not ritual.

What comes out of our mouths when we are bumped? What a testimony it is when, instead of anger, out come words of faith and blessing.

Dear Jesus, fill my heart with your truth and love, so that when life bumps me I will spill over with your grace.

Steve Scalise on Afghanistan: “An Epic Failure of President Biden’s Foreign Policy” | RealClearPolitics Videos

Rep. Steve Scalise, the House Republican whip, told CBS’s “Face The Nation” on Sunday that the situation in Kabul is “President Biden’s Saigon moment.”

SCALISE: Well, during the call, you actually had events still continuing to unfold, and so in real time, we were seeing things on social media that they weren’t really talking about on the call. But it’s a very dire situation when you see the United States embassy being evacuated. In fact, you just had President Biden a few days ago saying you wouldn’t see helicopters evacuating the embassy like Saigon. And yet here we are. This is- this is President Biden’s Saigon moment. And unfortunately, it was very predictable. It seems like many in President Biden’s intelligence community got this devastatingly wrong. And I think a lot of questions will be asked later about why. Just weeks ago, they were saying something completely different than what we’re seeing on the ground today and in- in Afghanistan.

NANCY CORDES: Right. Last week, the president said he did not expect that the Taliban would be able to retake all of the country. But here’s what he’s saying now. He said this weekend, one more year or five more years of U.S. military presence would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country. White House officials are essentially arguing it was President Trump who set this in motion when he agreed to withdraw U.S. troops completely by May 1st. So was all of this inevitable?

REP. SCALISE: No, and in fact, we’ve seen a lot of finger pointing and blaming, you know, there- there used to be a saying that the buck stops here on the president’s desk, and he wants to blame everybody else. But look, President Trump had an agreement in place that was conditions based and those conditions were not met. In fact, many of the conditions included that the Taliban wouldn’t overtake the cities that they have now overtaken under President Biden’s leadership. So, President Biden didn’t follow through on the conditions that were in place. He just let them come and run roughshod in there, destroying documents, burning documents at the embassy and trying to get everybody out. They can, instead of following through on the commitments that were made. And this sends in a more concerning message to our allies around the world, really sends a concerning message to our enemies around the world who are watching this. China is very involved in what’s happening right now in Afghanistan as our other adversaries. And so they’re seeing just how easy it was to overtake these areas where the president really said it wouldn’t happen and it did happen. So it’s an epic failure on President Biden’s foreign policy. He needs to take ownership of it and take other steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again. If he’s not going to clean house, he was- was either widely misled by his own intelligence or he was misleading the American people deliberately. But he said very different things just days ago than what we’re seeing happen on the ground. He’s got to take ownership of that.

Boris Johnson blames US over Afghanistan & claims Biden ‘accelerated’ collapse as Taliban storm presidential palace | The US Sun

BORIS Johnson has blamed the US for the advancement of the Taliban in Afghanistan, claiming President Biden “accelerated” their control.

The Prime Minister said the “difficult” situation had been exacerbated by the President’s decision to withdraw troops from the war-torn country.

Boris blamed Joe Biden for ‘accelerating’ tensions in Afghanistan[/caption]

In the wake of the Cobra meeting, Boris said it was “fair to say the US decision to pull out has accelerated things, but this has in many ways been a chronicle of an event foretold.”

He urged the West to come together to stop Afghanistan again becoming a “breeding ground for terrorism”, after the Defence Select Committee chairman warned of terrorist attacks on the West “on the scale of 9/11.”

Mr Johnson told Sky News: “I think we’ve known for some time this is the way things were going and as I said before, this is a mission whose military component really ended for the UK in 2014, what we’re dealing with now is the very likely advent of a new regime in Kabul, we don’t know exactly what kind of a regime that will be.”

The PM then made clear that the Government’s priority is to “make sure we deliver on our obligations to UK nationals in Afghanistan, to all those who have helped the British effort… over 20 years and to get them out as fast as we can.”

“I think it is very important that the West should work collectively to get over to that new government – be it by the Taliban or anybody else – that nobody wants Afghanistan once again to be a breeding ground for terror and we don’t think it is in the interests of the people of Afghanistan that it should lapse back into that pre-2001 status,” Johnson continued.

“What the UK will be doing is working with our partners in the UN Security, in Nato, to get that message over.”

Tory MPs blasted the crisis as “the biggest single foreign policy disaster since Suez”.

Defence Select Committee chairman, Tobias Ellwood said: “We assembled the most incredible technologically advanced alliance the world has ever seen and we’re being defeated by an insurgency that’s armed simply with AK-47s and RPGs.”

The former soldier also branded President Biden’s decision as “rash” and said it “will be the biggest own goal made by the West so far this century.”

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani today fled the country after the Taliban stormed the capital Kabul and seized his palace.

Militants demanded a “peaceful transfer of power” while thousands rushed to escape the increasingly concerning situation.

The fanatics have released 5,000 prisoners and taken control of the air base as the government dramatically collapsed this afternoon.

It comes hours after the Taliban took control of Jalalabad and means they now have seized every city in the war-torn country.

The speed of their victory has shaken the world and came just weeks after troops from the US, UK and other Nato countries left Afghanistan.

A few days ago United States officials predicted it would take 30 days for the Taliban to reach Kabul – and 90 to take the city – but they have swept all before them in a terrifying rampage.

Twenty years after they were ejected by the US and its allies in the wake of 9/11 they stand on the brink of being back in power.

Ghani left Kabul for Tajikistan only 24 hours after he addressed the nation and said he hoped to fight on – but the speed of the Taliban advance left him no option but to flee.

They had demanded his removal as part of talks to ensure a peaceful transition of power when they reached Kabul to avoid an all out assault on the capital.

In scenes that echoed the fall of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War, helicopters were seen ferrying US embassy staff to safety at a secure area near the airport.

The US Ambassador left in the early evening with the American flag to a new site at the airport.

Britain’s ambassador Sir Laurie Bristow remains in Kabul as him and remaining diplomatic staff prepare to be evacuated.

Paras from the 16 Air Assault Brigade have begun deploying to evacuate Brits from the city as well as about 2000 Afghan nationals who worked with British forces.

Kabul airport is to remain open for foreigners to leave, the Taliban said, and flights were continuing to operate.

Terrified residents have already begun fleeing in their cars leading to traffic jams, with a huge number of people now massing at the country’s borders.

The Taliban appeared to offer an amnesty for government forces and said they want a “peaceful transfer of power”.

“No one’s life, property and dignity will be harmed and the lives of the citizens of Kabul will not be at risk,” the Taliban said.

But questions remain about whether the Taliban leadership is able to control troops on the ground and prevent them taking revenge.

When the Taliban last entered Kabul in 1996 after first seizing power, they tortured a former President then dragged him into the streets and hanged him.

Tugendhat told BBC News that Afghans who helped the British now faced reprisals if they fell into the hands of the Taliban.

“This isn’t just about interpreters or guards,” he said.

“This is about those people who we trained in special forces to serve alongside us, those who helped us to understand the territory through our agencies and our diplomats.

“This is the people who, on our encouragement, set up schools for girls. These people are all at risk now.

“The real danger is that we are going to see every female MP murdered, we are going to see ministers strung up on street lamps.”

Fellow Tory MP and former army officer Johnny Mercer described the situation as “humiliating to watch”.

“We have politically chosen to be defeated by the Taliban and we have to accept that,” he told Sky News.

“Personally I think it’s shameful. It’s out of keeping with our values and our principles.

“I never thought I’d see the day either as a serviceman or as a member of the Conservative Party where we would essentially surrender to the Taliban and leave these people to their fate.”

Mercer also questioned why the UK has followed the US lead in leaving the country.

“We don’t pour 40 billion pounds a year into a defence budget in order to not leave the gates or be able to do anything without the Americans,” he said.

From Ravi Zacharias to Josh Duggar, Why Leaders Fall to Sexual Evil | BCNN1 – Black Christian News Network

Ravi Zacharias, Carl Lentz, Josh Duggar … the list goes on. Why do leaders continue to fall into extramarital affairs, sexual abuse, and porn?

The aftershocks have been devastating, causing feelings of betrayal, deep pain, and trauma that make life in this new normal even more unbearable, uncertain, and confusing. This pain has led many into skepticism resulting in abandoning their faith.

Are these crises simply a matter of broken human nature, and might we be just a moment away from similar acts? Or is the reality more complex?

We would like to propose that many people suffer from a significant growth gap—a tendency to focus more on spiritual activity than spiritual identity. Many churches have a typical growth model where people are thought to grow primarily by external activity–-serving in church, praying, and Bible reading. There is a better way: one of internal maturation spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. We must deal with our pain and the unhealthy relational and family dynamics we grew up in, move from isolation to connection, and grow into who God has made us to be so that we will be able to love Him and others.

After being sexually abused as a child and experiencing pain from my dysfunctional family, I (Josh) harbored deep hurts. When I became a Christian many things did improve, but eventually my unresolved pain caught up to me. Even though my ministry thrived, I didn’t. I found myself exhausted, angry, and struggling to cope with unhealed emotional wounds. For example, whenever my mom complained about the abuse she received from my father, I bore the responsibility for stopping him and carrying the burden of my mom’s emotional distress. Rescuing loved ones became one of the few ways I could gain my family’s acceptance and love. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into my adult life; the world’s problems were mine to solve. I remember this growth gap well. Do you find this familiar?

Mandating Tyranny | Stephen Lendman

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

The rule of law in the US/West no longer exists. 

It was abolished unannounced, unreported by establishment media press agents for diabolical interests.

Brave new world dystopia is unfolding in plain sight — wrapped in the American and other Western flags.

Tyranny is scheduled to arrive after alpha, beta, gamma, delta, lambda and other flu/covid scariants.

US/Western barbarians at the gates already instituted police state-enforced totalitarian rule — their societies unsafe and unfit to live in.

Once tyranny arrives full-blown, what little remains of free and open societies in the West no longer will exist.

Practically gone already, their elimination was planned long ago, dystopian tyranny in the wings to replace them.

Will deadly flu/covid jabs be mandated ahead with depopulation of unwanted billions of people in mind worldwide?

Will passports be required to access public places?

Will mass-jabbing refuseniks — wanting their health protected, not destroyed — be ostracized from society?

Will they be criminalized, perhaps isolated in internment camps?

Will truth-telling journalists and others be targeted for elimination?

According to MedPage Today, truth-telling doctors about all-things flu/covid — especially about health-destroying jabs — may be delicensed by state medical boards.

They may be charged with the crime of practicing medicine to protect health and heal by doing no harm as mandated by the Nuremberg Code, other international law, the US Constitution under its Supremacy Clause and Hippocratic Oath. 

According to the US Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB):

Truth-telling physicians on this most cutting-edge issue of our time — accused of “willfully generat(ing) and spread(ing) (what’s falsely called) misinformation or disinformation (on toxic flu/covid jabs) — are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards…”

It may “includ(e) suspension or revocation of their medical license.” 

“Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not.” 

“They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus driven for the betterment of public health.” 

“Spreading (truth and full disclosure on health destroying flu/covid jabs, falsely called) inaccurate information contradicts that responsibility (sic), threatens to further erode public trust in the medical profession (sic), and puts all patients at risk (sic).”

FSMB CEO Humayun Chaudhry threatened physicians, saying they “and other licensees (better) get the message.”

Instead of explaining that all flu/covid scariants are largely the same  — not a dime’s worth of difference of concern among them — he falsely claimed that “we may have a situation in hand where (jabs to be shunned aren’t) even effective.”

Designed to irreversibly destroy health, not protect it, Chaudhry ignored what’s most important about them.

He lied claiming that experimental, inadequately tested, rushed to market toxic jabs “are a key piece in preventing” flu/covid (sic), adding:

“When the state boards get a complaint, they will investigate and if they determine there’s grounds for taking action, they will” — including reprimands of physicians, suspending or revoking their license to practice medicine, for doing the right things.

Is that where things are heading?

Will doctors who prioritize health protection and healing be denied the right to treat patients?

Will Pharma-supporting medical professionals alone remained licensed?

Today’s brave new world dystopia exceeds the worst of what Orwell and Huxley imagined.

With the mother of all scams — elevated to the law of the land in the US/West and elsewhere — disappear free, safe and open societies altogether?

What was inconceivable pre-2020 is today’s reality — a nightmare with no awakening to end.

The only solution is popular revolution. Without it we’re doomed.

Milley’s incompetence: Joint Chiefs Chairman moves up terrorist threat in Afghanistan | Axios

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley told senators Sunday that a previous assessment of how soon terrorist groups will likely reconstitute in Afghanistan will speed up because of what’s happening there now, according to three sources on the phone call.

Why this matters: Protecting the U.S. against terrorist threats to the homeland was an original reason for engaging the U.S. in this 20-year war.

  • Afghanistan has fallen to the Taliban much faster than President Biden or his top military leaders predicted.

Behind the scenes: On a Sunday phone call between top Biden officials and senators from both parties, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Milley whether, in light of recent events, they will revise an assessment to Congress in June of a “medium” risk of terrorist groups reconstituting in Afghanistan within two years.

  • Milley responded “yes” — that he would have to assume that timeline would get moved up and that he would be happy to brief senators in a classified setting.
  • The three Biden officials on the call were Secretary of State Antony Blinken — who had already been sent out to face tough questioning on the Sunday shows — alongside Austin and Milley.

Between the lines: Sources on the call described a surreal experience, listening in on the Biden officials brief them on the situation while checking their cellphones and seeing real-time chaos unfolding in Kabul.

  • Reports were firing across Twitter of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fleeing Afghanistan, while U.S. military scrambled to evacuate the embassy in Kabul. The chaos was the opposite of the orderly, safe withdrawal that Biden had promised.
  • Senators from both parties pressed Milley and Austin on efforts to evacuate U.S. personnel and the many thousands of Afghans who helped Americans in the war effort and are desperate to escape to save their lives from Taliban vengeance.
  • A source on the call said the sad reality is there is no way they can evacuate by Aug 31 the more than 20,000 Afghans who want to escape the country. Many of them aren’t in Kabul, the source said, and “if you’re not in Kabul now, how do you get to Kabul?
  • “Two takeaways for me,” the source said. “We’re gonna leave tens of thousands of people behind … and the timeline in terms of threats has accelerated.”

This is a developing story … more to come.

CNN’s Jake Tapper Says It’s ‘Shocking That President Biden Could Be So Wrong’ On Afghanistan

CNN host Jake Tapper seemingly turned on Joe Biden on Sunday, saying that it is “shocking” that the president could be so wrong when he said it was “highly unlikely” the Taliban would quickly take over Afghanistan. “Weeks before the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the deadline of President Biden’s complete withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the Taliban having seized much of that country they’re now at the gates of the capital city of Kabul,” Tapper said .
