Time to resign Joe

September 3, 2021

Our “Good Catholic” President Joe Biden announced that he was launching a “whole of government” effort to fight the new Texas law banning abortions of babies after they have a heartbeat. So he’s literally enlisting all the powers of the federal government to go to war on babies with heartbeats. I’m so glad we have compassionate adults back in charge.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/09/02/joe-biden-launches-whole-of-government-effort-to-fight-texas-pro-life-law/

As previously noted, when they lost this round in the SCOTUS, Democrats quickly dropped their gaslighting nonsense about “birthing people” and men having babies, too, and starting couching the law not as a protection for unborn children, but as an attack on women’s health care or women’s rights (FYI: about half of all babies are girls, and they’re getting aborted, too. So I guess women only have rights if they’re lucky enough to make it out of the womb.)

All the talk about women’s rights is even more laughable when you consider it’s coming from a man who just consigned an entire nation full of women and girls to barbaric subjugation, rape, forced marriages, sex slavery and generally being treated worse than oxen.

And before you cut him any slack due to cognitive decline or the current chaotic conditions that he created, know that according to Richard Holbrooke, Obama’s former special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, way back in 2010, Biden was advocating bugging out of Afghanistan and never mind the consequences. When Holbrooke brought up America’s obligations to Afghans like the girl in the Kabul school, Biden replied, “F--- that, we don’t have to worry about that.” Referring to the tragic fall of Saigon in 1973, he continued, “We did it in Vietnam, Nixon and Kissinger got away with it.”

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/08/17/joe-biden-told-diplomat-fck-that-when-asked-about-duty-to-afghanistans-women-and-girls/

He had zero concern for the hideousness that might be inflicted on the women and girls of Afghanistan. All he cared about was how it would affect his political fortunes. If it didn't, then (BLEEP) them. Likewise, he doesn’t care about the rights of women to feel secure in intimate spaces or to win sports scholarships as long as he can pander to the deep pockets LGBTQ lobby.

So when I see him tossing his alleged sacred religious beliefs overboard to pander to the “no limits on abortion” lobby, pardon me if I don’t believe he’s doing it because he just cares so very, very deeply about the rights of females.

PS – He accused the Texas law of “unleashing unconstitutional chaos.” Again, if he really believes what he’s saying and opposes the unleashing of unconstitutional chaos, he should resign immediately.

In just over a week, we’ll mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on Manhattan’s Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as on United Airlines Flight 93, a plane that was crashed in a Pennsylvania field by its heroic passengers to protect its likely target, the White House. I wish people who aren’t old enough to remember all this or who chose to block it out could know what it was like and feel the raw emotion of that time. Other than the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan that took us into World War II 80 years ago, there’s been nothing remotely comparable to it in our history.

Almost 3,000 people were killed, most of them in the fall of the Twin Towers, and thousands more –- particularly first responders and clean-up crews –- have suffered lifelong disability resulting from conditions on the ground there.

https://www.app.com/story/news/local/how-we-live/2019/09/11/sept-11-workers-still-battle-beast-insane-stabbing-burning-pain/2229353001/

When planes flew into both towers on that bright and beautiful fall morning, and the towers collapsed upon themselves, it was a demolition of indescribable magnitude. A huge portion of Manhattan, 14 million square feet of downtown –- was turned into rubble. And it was a massacre. Video that is seldom played today showed human beings jumping a thousand feet to their deaths rather than be burned alive. Virtually everyone in New York knew someone who had perished. Many thousands of people lost spouses, brothers, sisters, dear friends and colleagues. Children lost parents. Parents lost children.

Literally tons of debris filled the atmosphere. The air was thick with toxic substances that ravaged the lungs of those who managed to live through the day. For first responders, it was like a war zone.

Every year on September 11, except for a modified pre-recorded version last year because of COVID, a ceremony has been held at the memorial in which all the names of those lost were read aloud by family members to a wide audience that included the families, police, firefighters, other first responders and emergency workers. Then, throughout that night, the twin beams of the “Tribute In Light” blazed straight up into the sky, as a statement of power and resilience against our evil terrorist enemies.

So what about this year? Regarding the reading of the names, there’s been so much back-and-forth about it that it's hard to know what they’ve finally decided to do. On August 15, it was announced that the Tunnel 2 Towers Foundation would hold an “alternative” ceremony, just south of the memorial, for the names because the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, citing covid again, wouldn’t be having one this year. (It's not clear to us whether they've changed their mind and are doing it after all or if Tunnel 2 Towers is still the sponsor.) Masks will be required, and the podium will be sanitized after every speaker.

Apparently, only 9/11 family members are invited this year, as officials want to discourage large crowds. It's a shame to see this moving ceremony diminished in any way --- especially for covid, since this event takes place outdoors, everyone will be masked, and most will likely be vaccinated. If another concern is budget, that really shouldn’t be an issue, either. They might need extra security for the larger crowd, but I’ll bet a lot of New York’s Finest would proudly volunteer for that job.

Believe it or not, for the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the museum had decided not to have the “Tribute In Light.” They said they didn’t have the funds for it. They said that last year, too, but Gov. Cuomo contributed enough state resources to make it happen. Fortunately, the “Tribute In Light” is back on this year, too.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/08/15/9-11-tribute-twin-light-display-back-new-york/5592530002/

You can see how confusing this got when you add in this report from RedState.com, which says a group called the Sergeants Benevolent Association has stepped up to provide the beams of light. We're not sure now if the museum (with or without state funds) is doing it or the SBA is, but at least SOMEBODY is. Those lights had better be blazing. They need to be seen from space, till dawn breaks on September 12.

Fortunately, New York Public Radio is doing quite a bit of special programming, which started September 1.

https://nypublicradio.org/2021/09/01/wnyc-wqxr-mark-the-20th-anniversary-of-9-11/

Here’s a list of the in-person events planned for that day.

https://911groundzero.com/blog/commemorating-the-20th-anniversary-of-9-11-nyc-events-and-legacies/

For a time, it looked as though this year’s memorial would be scaled way down, and that would not have been acceptable. As Steve Cuozzo wrote in the NEW YORK POST on August 14 –- the day before it was announced the “Tribute In Light” would light up after all –- “Today, many younger and newly arrived New Yorkers have little idea what 9/11 meant. To treat the 20th anniversary as business as usual threatens to consign the memory to just another unpleasant hiccup of history such as the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn for Los Angeles or the 1965 power blackout.” Perhaps his commentary is what convinced officials to light up the night sky after all.

Yes, the museum has a budget crunch, he said, but “the catastrophe’s 20th anniversary should not be allowed to become a shadow of its past commemorations.”

https://nypost.com/2021/08/14/9-11-museums-decision-to-scrap-a-20th-anniversary-memorial-is-a-disgrace/

What a disgrace it would be to play down 9/11 on the 20th anniversary of that carnage. It also occurs to me that such a disgrace would compound the epic national disgrace going on right now: our botched exit from Afghanistan and the abandoning of U.S. citizens, Afghan friends and cutting-edge military equipment to the terrorists who have overrun the place and made it once again a haven for themselves. How ironic it would be for us now to diminish the 9/11 ceremony on the 20th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. Look at us now, with our own President putting himself in the position of having to negotiate with the Taliban. Sadly, this time, as we memorialize our lost and honor our brave, the terrorists will be celebrating just as they did 20 years ago. Except now when they wave their guns in the air, they'll have much better guns. Thank you, Mr. President.

……………………...

Michael Arad, the young architect (an Israeli citizen born in London who has since obtained dual citizenship here) whose design was chosen for the 9/11 memorial, was living in Manhattan at the time of the attack and said 9/11 had made him a New Yorker. He said he “would never forget how people poured into Union Square, Times Square, Washington Square, needing to be together, to stand side by side with strangers, bearing individual pain but sharing collective grief.”

“If the terrorists thought they’d sow fear and division,” he said, “they did not succeed.”

If you’ve never been to the memorial, stood at the edge of the waterfalls and looked at some of the names of all 2,983 who lost their lives that day, I urge you do make the trip and do it. (One of my writers said the moment during this experience that hit her the hardest was seeing a square simply carved with the words “Unborn Baby.”)

For when you have time, here’s a detailed article about Arad and the meaning behind the memorial he designed.

Two good stories out of Texas

September 3, 2021

Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has an entertaining and informative write-up about two good stories out of Texas (the passage of the voter integrity bill and the Supreme Court allowing enforcement of the post-five-week abortion ban – FYI,, Chief Justice Roberts sided with the liberals in wanting to block that, but they were outvoted 5-4.)

https://pjmedia.com/columns/stephen-kruiser/2021/09/02/the-morning-briefing-democrats-angry-that-babies-and-votes-are-now-safer-in-texas-n1475010

Kruiser also talks about some of the apocalyptic hair-on-fire rhetoric dispensed by the Democrats in their anguish over the idea that Texans disapprove of election cheating and killing babies.

I fervently hope that this overheated verbiage is starting to lose its potency, like the boy who cried, “Wolf!” (or “Racist!”) It seems to me as if the left has a bag full of random red-hot words and phrases that they just throw wildly at anything that displeases them, in hopes it will stick even if it makes no sense. Like insulting black people by calling an ID requirement “voter suppression” or “Jim Crow on steroids” (most black Americans are perfectly capable of obtaining an ID and support having to show it to vote.)

But leave it to radical left Rep. Cori Bush to take this to new levels of incomprehensibility by tweeting, “I’m thinking about the Black, brown, low-income, queer, and young folks in Texas. The folks this abortion health care ban will disproportionately harm.”

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/09/01/the-freak-out-begins-after-texas-abortion-law-goes-into-effect-n436450

Wow, applying logic to that is like trying to untangle the world’s biggest hairball. First of all, abortion isn’t “health care.” It’s the opposite: it’s killing a child in the womb. There is almost no circumstance in which abortion is considered a necessary procedure to protect a woman’s health.

Secondly, the way that black and brown people would be disproportionately affected by an abortion ban is that a lot more of them would be alive today. Since Roe v. Wade, more than 20 million black babies have been aborted. That’s more than the entire black US population in 1960. Also, 79% of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located within walking distance of black or Latino neighborhoods. It should come as no surprise that Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist eugenicist.

Third, young folks probably are disproportionately affected by any abortion law, since old people don’t get pregnant that often.

Finally, “queer” people are certainly disproportionately affected by abortion laws, as in “not affected AT ALL!” Is unplanned pregnancy really a big concern for male-male or female-female couples? Maybe some hire surrogates or get artificially inseminated to have kids, but if so, I doubt they’ll be running to abortion clinics afterward.

This just goes to show that the left has no intelligent arguments in favor of killing children in the womb, so they just reach into their bag of buzzwords (“Black!” “Young!” “Queer!” “Disproportionate!”) and throw out whatever they can grab in hopes it will fly by so fast that you won’t have time to think about it.

Zero Time

September 3, 2021

The Media Research Center reports that CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and MSNBC News devoted zero time to the revelation that President Biden pressured Afghanistan’s President on a phone call to help change the perception that the Taliban might take over, whether it's true or not. As noted here before, if an innocuous phone call from Trump to Ukraine’s President was grounds for impeachment, then this is, to use a phrase Biden should appreciate, impeachment grounds on steroids. Yet the media are doing their best to hide it and protect Biden.

Biden’s spokeswoman Jen Psaki is obviously counting on them to memory-hole Biden’s Afghanistan catastrophe and start acting like palace guards again. You can see here how she tried to spin it away and said she wouldn’t go into the details of a “private conservation.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/2-year-old-psaki-tweet-comes-back-haunt-bombshell-leaked-biden-call/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Unfortunately for her, the Internet is forever, and conservative commentator Jack Posobiec unearthed an old tweet from Psaki about Trump’s Ukraine phone call:

“It is not just the call transcript. The whistleblower complaint would likely have more details. And we need both. And not just the call.”

Sounds as if she thought that Presidential phone call was public business, and if the President did anything illegal on it, it should be exposed and the President held to account. Gee, I wonder what changed her attitude?...

There are some teachers who think their job is not to educate but to indoctrinate children into the leftist hivemind. Fortunately, though, the public is catching on, partly because of the pandemic exposing parents to what’s happening in classrooms. But also because, as with Harvey Weinstein, years of doing it in secret and getting away with it made them arrogantly think they were untouchable, so they got sloppy about exposing themselves. That was a bad idea. Today’s cases in point:

The Natomas, California, school district has fired an Inderkum High School social studies teacher after Project Veritas released an undercover video of him allegedly revealing how he works to radicalize his students “farther and farther left.” He said, “I have 180 days to turn them into revolutionaries.”

https://www.foxnews.com/us/pro-antifa-california-teacher-to-be-fired

The school found Antifa and Mao Zedong posters in his classroom, and stickers of communist dictators such as Stalin and Castro that he used to mark papers. He gave students extra credit for attending protests and described Mao’s “Cultural Revolution” in China that killed up to 20 million people as “fixing a problem.” When a student said that the teacher's Antifa flag made him uncomfortable, he replied, "Well, this is meant to make fascists feel uncomfortable, so if you feel uncomfortable, I don’t really know what to tell you.”

Ooh! Ooh! I know, teacher! What I’d tell the student is this:

“Antifa follows in a long tradition of duplicitous radical left groups that use misleading terms to trick you into supporting terrible ideas. Antifa claims it’s fighting fascism by using violence and intimidation to silence political opponents, which is a hallmark of fascism. So if their flag makes you uncomfortable, it means you can spot dangerous, lying fascists when you see them. You’re smarter than your teacher, so you get an A.”

Meanwhile, an Orange County, California, teacher who bragged on TikTok that she removed the American flag from her classroom because it made her “uncomfortable,” and suggested kids say the Pledge of Allegiance to her LGBTQ Pride flag instead, has been removed and placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/california-teacher-pledge-allegiance-pride-flag-removed-from-classroom

A group of parents rallied in protest outside her school, and a school district spokesperson said, “While we do not discuss employee related matters, we can tell you that showing respect and honor for our nation’s flag is a value that we instill in our students and an expectation of our employees. We take matters like this seriously and will be taking action to address it."

I’m very relieved to hear that. I’d be more relieved if it didn’t require exposure on social media and public parental protests just to get teachers to teach instead of indoctrinate.

News Update

September 2, 2021

Update: 

Our original story "Were U.S. working dogs left behind? Depends on who you ask,"  included a link to the Defense Department's denial of claims that any military service dogs were left behind, but Lead Stories now has more details to confirm that.

https://leadstories.com/hoax-alert/2021/09/fact-check-the-united-states-did-not-leave-behind-military-working-dogs-in-cages-in-afghanistan.html

You may read the story, along with the update above here

There are so many stories out of Afghanistan that are heartbreaking and infuriating that I hate to have to relate them, but sadly, this is the news under President Biden. So in the hopes that this message will actually penetrate his thick border wall of arrogant, defensive stubbornness, I will share these stories:

Among the people Biden left behind to fend for themselves are 24 Sacramento school children who were prevented by the Taliban from reaching the airport and who are now in hiding.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bera-confirms-sacramento-students-trapped-afghanistan

There’s also a report of a pregnant American woman who was trying to get past a checkpoint with her husband when she was kicked in the stomach by the Taliban. She’s now in hiding as well.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/08/31/report-pregnant-american-kicked-in-stomach-by-taliban-after-stranded-by-joe-biden/

And then there’s the story of the Afghan interpreter who actually helped save Biden’s life in 2008 when he and two Senators were in a helicopter that was forced to land in a remote valley due to a snowstorm.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/afghan-interpreter-who-helped-rescue-biden-in-2008-left-behind-after-u-s-exit

After years of service and helping our soldiers in over 100 firefights, he and his wife and four children are in hiding from the Taliban because their efforts to get out were blocked by bureaucracy. He has a message from his hiding place: “Hello, Mr. President. Save me and my family. Don’t forget me here.”

I hope you’ll join me in praying for the safety of everyone who's been left behind, and for our President to stop congratulating himself on his "extraordinary success" and do something to help all these people, if it’s not already too late.

I would also suggest that the motto of the Biden Administration be “Accountability? What’s that?” if it didn’t have so much competition from “Competence? What’s that?”

But to show just how desperate the Democrats are to doge accountability for the four-alarm dumpster fire that Biden created in Afghanistan, House Democrats blocked efforts by Republican members who are Afghan war vets to introduce a bill requiring the White House to present a plan to bring the Americans Biden left trapped in Afghanistan safely home. Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell, who was presiding over the chamber, gaveled them out of session, not only blocking the legislation but also their efforts to read the names of the 13 service members who were killed in last week’s suicide bombing at Kabul airport into the Congressional Record.

https://www.westernjournal.com/dem-congresswoman-blocks-names-13-dead-service-members-read-house-floor/

Dingell shut down House debate as some members shouted at her, “How can you not read the names?” and “Turn your back on your country!”

I will remind you that these are the same House Democrats who arranged the equivalent of a State Funeral for a Capitol Police officer who died after the January Capitol riot that they’re trying to gin up into an actual insurrection attempt, even though he really died of a stroke unrelated to the protest. Yet they won’t even allow the names to be read of military veterans who really did give their lives fighting genuine violent terrorists in the service of their country.

I could tell you what I think about this and the remedy for it, but Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media saved me the trouble by writing an article titled, “Banish Democrats From Office Until They Elect Some Non-Commie Adults.”

https://pjmedia.com/columns/stephen-kruiser/2021/08/31/banish-democrats-from-office-until-they-elect-some-non-commie-adults-n1473983

Kruiser traces the recent history of the Dem leadership and how it’s separated from regular working Democrats to become an insane, juvenile, far-left madhouse motivated almost entirely by spite against Trump and Republicans. He notes that their adult toddler tantrum has gone from tedious to disturbing to now having a body count, and that’s enough. What must be done? He answers:

“Should we make it to November 2022 relatively intact, it is imperative that American voters who don’t live in the coastal commie bubbles (or Chicago) rise up and make sure that this current crop of Democratic party rulers isn’t allowed anywhere near any kind of power again.

Ever.

The 2021 Democratic elite are a metastasizing cancer that is rapidly killing a lot of the good in America. Cut that you-know-what out.”

By the way, he makes it clear that he’s not calling for one party rule, only that the voters rid the Democrats, and all of us, of their current insane, America-hating cult. Maybe then, moderate adults like Sen. Krysten Sinema can once again fill the leadership of the Party instead of being a rare outlier whom the leaders are trying to destroy for standing in the way of them destroying the country.
