Episode 404 – We Made This

Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan keeps falling apart and Old Joe is beginning to show his true colors.

And the CDC is becoming less concerned about disease and more concerned about power.

 

Afghanistan Update…Maybe

On Friday, in response to the killing of 13 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, the Biden administration reported that they performed a drone strike that killed two high profile ISIS-K terrorists. Initially, it was reported that one was killed.

According to the AP:

“U.S. Central Command said the U.S. conducted a drone strike against an Islamic State member in Nangahar believed to be involved in planning attacks against the U.S. in Kabul. The strike killed one individual, and spokesman Navy Capt. William Urban said they knew of no civilian casualties.”

In an absolute shock to all, no names were released.

If you are thinking this is BS because the administration would not name the terrorists of that this didn’t actually happen, you’re not the only one.

Retired US Army Lt. Col Brian F. Sullivan told the New York Post:

“Normally if they get a high-profile guy they like to name him. They keep talking BS about ‘eyes over the horizon’ but I think a lot of this is the administration blowing more smoke. They’re throwing this up as if the US is reacting with strength and power. So that makes the score something like ISIS 200-US two. Who are they kidding?

“If they knew about this why didn’t they drone the sonofabitch beforehand? They are flat-ass lying to us.”

Yeah, I guess when you lie for eight months, anything he says might be considered a lie.

On Sunday, the Biden administration launched a drone strike against an ISIS-K terror threat. The missile hit a van carrying a substantial amount of explosives. They believe it was loaded with explosives because there was a secondary explosion. This came almost 36 hours after the Biden administration put out a warning about another terrorist strike against the airport.

Reports have it that nine civilians were killed including six children. CENCOM reported that they are investigating.

This time, there are pictures of the explosion and witness reports.

But things aren’t over. The State Department ordered Americans away from the Kabul airport expecting another terrorist attack this weekend. That’s going to make it really hard for Americans to get to the airport to get out of Afghanistan before Tuesday’s bug out.

Things are looking really bad over there. Not sure why the Biden administration doesn’t just extend the deadline and deal with the terrorists. He’s leaving too many people behind and this isn’t going to bode well with Americans.

But I know why. He doesn’t care.

There is video of Joe Biden and his wife Jill at the ceremony of 11 of the 13 soldiers killed in Afghanistan and, after saluting the coffins as they pass by, he looks at his watch. WTF?! Are the Golden Girls coming on? Is the Murder She Wrote marathon coming on?

That Angela Lansbury is kind of hot. I never want to hear how good a man Joe Biden is. He doesn’t care.

Then, he was giving a report about Hurricane Ida in the south and he was asked a question about Afghanistan:

He walked out! Sort of. He actually couldn’t find the exit. I’m also pretty sure he mispronounced “Afghanistan”.

The guys needs to be out of office. I know he’s going to be replaced by Kamala Harris and the Democrats do not want that but this guy has lost all credibility and trust. Polls have it that only 32% approve of his job in Afghanistan, 86% believe we should have stayed in Afghanistan until everyone was pulled out (that’s with over 70% believing we should pull out of Afghanistan) and his overall approval rating is at 47.3% while his disapproval rate is at 46.9%

He’s is huge trouble.

Overstepping Their Bounds Again

I think it is not stretch to say that the CDC has embraced their role of making American policy. They’ve been doing it for over a year and look like they enjoy the power. What’s great is that the organization is Leftist and woke.

We already know that the CDC made the law of putting a stop of tenants having to pay rent and Joe Biden went with it even though he said it was probably against the law. Bad news for the CDC, the Biden administration and all those squatter, sponges who don’t want to perform their contractually obligated responsibilities: The Supreme Court rules that the law was unconstitutional. So folks are going to have to pay their rent again.

The CDC, busy being little tyrants over the last year, decided it was time to restart their gun research program to find out how the CDC can address the gun violence epidemic. I know how!

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, said to CNN:

Few things:

  • What’s stunning is the CDC is actually addressing this.
  • This is not in the CDC’s purview.

Here’s another:

Few things:

  • What the gal from CNN is talking about is crime. That’s public policy. That’s not an epidemic and not under the CDC.
  • They are trying to make a disease of gun violence, when, in fact, there’s no such thing as gun violence. Because guns don’t commit violence. People do.
    • A shooting in the street is not gun violence, it’s crime.
    • A mass shooting is not gun violence, it’s crime.
    • Suicide by gun is not gun violence, it’s a mental health issue.
    • Accidental shootings is not gun violence, it is the lack of responsibility by the gun owner.
  • All of these things I mentioned above are different but the Left, as usual, bunches them up into one category.
  • Finally, Walinski does the political trick, emotion.

Here’s another clip from that interview:

A few things:

  • Understanding crime, mental health or lack of responsibility from a gun owner is not her job to understand. It is policy that is debated by politicians and voted on by the people.
  • Finally, we can all agree that people shouldn’t die. That should not affect my God-given right to own a gun.

A few things:

  • Whenever someone on the Left mentions the word gun, they follow it with violence.
  • She already has her solution. She wants the opportunity to shame you into not seeing her solution is the best.
  • I hate when politicians say the word “conversation”.

Here is the final clip:

“We need to do something about it” means she wants to take guns away and make it impossible to buy a gun.

She is right about one thing: Our youth is dying and guns are involved. What she’s wrong about is that her Leftist ideas can fix it when, in fact, its those same policies that have created the danger for our youth.

  • The defund the police movement and criminal justice reform have made legal crime. Crime rates have all gone up.
  • The lockdowns at the CDC has actually increased teen suicide.

This is just another bureaucracy that is trying to implement a type of gun control. I am thrilled that the NRA does not engage in this people because all that will happen is they will be brow-beaten about dead kids and then will be accused of wanting kids to die. How do I know this’ll happen? Isn’t that what Tony Fauci and the CDC are saying about vaccines and masks. That if we do not want to take a vaccine and wear a mask it’s because we want people to die. Could that be it?

But that not all.

The CDC has decided to push equity by changing medical language to be more inclusive.

What they want to change:

Read this.

This is an example of what’s wrong with this country. Bureaucracies such as the CDC are now trying to create public policy and they are really stepping out of their lanes. Our federal government has created a monster with the bureaucracies and weakened themselves in the same stroke. Bureaucracies such as the EPA and IRS, a bunch of unelected and faceless entities, are bypassing Congress and the Executive branches by creating regulations that hinder their businesses and then fining or imprisoning anyone who does not comply.

I love what Mark Levin wrote in the book, The Liberty Amendments. He said that no bureaucracy should be a permanent institution. That they should be implemented as needed and then, if Congress does not think they are needed any longer, disbanded. Bureaucracy always needs to find away to justify their existence now and they do it through regulation and some of the most odd regulations. They need to be confronted and really prove their worth. Ending a business because of the unexplained disappearance of the ring-tailed shrew is probably not going to justify their overall need.

There’s a Shocker

Per the Daily Wire:

President Joe Biden’s administration released a long-awaited report on Friday afternoon about the origins of SARS-CoV-2. The report gave no definitive answers, was relatively soft on China, and effectively stated that the origins of the coronavirus will never be known without China’s cooperation.

Wow! Bet you’re shocked to hear about that. The report was written by the United States Intelligence Community.

The unclassified report was a little over a page long and can be read here. 

The introduction paragraph says this:

The IC assesses that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, probably emerged and
infected humans through an initial small-scale exposure that occurred no later than November
2019 with the first known cluster of COVID-19 cases arising in Wuhan, China in December
2019. In addition, the IC was able to reach broad agreement on several other key issues. We
judge the virus was not developed as a biological weapon. Most agencies also assess with low
confidence that SARS-CoV-2 probably was not genetically engineered; however, two agencies
believe there was not sufficient evidence to make an assessment either way. Finally, the IC
assesses China’s officials did not have foreknowledge of the virus before the initial outbreak of
COVID-19 emerged.

Here is the assesment:

  • Four IC elements and the National Intelligence Council assess with low confidence
    that the initial SARS-CoV-2 infection was most likely caused by natural exposure to
    an animal infected with it or a close progenitor virus—a virus that probably would be
    more than 99 percent similar to SARS-CoV-2. These analysts give weight to China’s
    officials’ lack of foreknowledge, the numerous vectors for natural exposure, and other
    factors.
  • One IC element assesses with moderate confidence that the first human infection with
    SARS-CoV-2 most likely was the result of a laboratory-associated incident, probably
    involving experimentation, animal handling, or sampling by the Wuhan Institute of
    Virology. These analysts give weight to the inherently risky nature of work on
    coronaviruses.
  • Analysts at three IC elements remain unable to coalesce around either explanation
    without additional information, with some analysts favoring natural origin, others a
    laboratory origin, and some seeing the hypotheses as equally likely.
  • Variations in analytic views largely stem from differences in how agencies weigh
    intelligence reporting and scientific publications, and intelligence and scientific gaps.

In other words, they don’t know crap.

They conclude:

China’s cooperation most likely would be needed to reach a conclusive assessment of the origins
of COVID-19. Beijing, however, continues to hinder the global investigation, resist sharing
information and blame other countries, including the United States. These actions reflect, in
part, China’s government’s own uncertainty about where an investigation could lead as well as
its frustration the international community is using the issue to exert political pressure on China.

Couple of questions:

  • Is our government going to do anything about this?
  • If Trump was President, do you think he would do anything about this?
  • Why is China not cooperating? Could it be that they did f- this up and they don’t want to suffer any consequences?
  • And why is Biden not pushing China? Could it be he’s actually compromised?

I have answers to all those questions. I bet you even know what they are.
