When see or hear “for the greater good” from a Dem-Marxist or their mouth pieces, you should ask yourself, “Whose greater good?” I am here to tell you the ONLY greater good a Dem-Marxist is the good of Dem-Marxist control of your personal life. Restricting the Rights in the Constitution or the Inalienable Rights from the Creator ARE NOT THE GREATER GOOD! Justin Smith elaborates.

“A drab of state, a cloth-o’-silver slut, to have her train borne up, and her soul trail in the dirt.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Free Born Americans must attack the Biden regime’s Fascism and state sponsored authoritarianism at every turn in the road and each time he and his handlers move against traditional America, Freedom and Liberty, and we must reject and refuse to comply with any illegal diktat presented to us under the color of “law” that places some intolerable limit on our personal Freedoms and Liberties, in the name of “for the Greater Good”, that inevitably and ultimately limits the Freedom of all American society, for no other reason than the Biden regime’s psychopathic need to control everybody and everything and to break the nation to its knees under authoritarian Socialism. Fight back against the Biden regime and a Democratic Party that equates the ideas of Marx and Mao with truth, Justice and Liberty.
Who are party to “the Greater Good” and who actually benefits? Certainly not the hardworking, freedom-loving individuals of America, in the context of how the phrase is currently understood within American society.
Too many in this country have suggested that America’s greatest achievements would never have materialized without “the collective”, as they have fallen prey to the fallacious conflation of results from individuals cooperating of their own free will and those of forced compliance by the government. Forced compliance and government intrusion has caused every single problem ever witnessed in this country. It was the unleashed power of individual creativity found through individual Liberty that gave us technological advancements, like the cotton-gin, the automobile and the airplane, which made America’s economy thrive more than anyone could imagine, thus opening the door for greater individual prosperity and Liberty.
A proponent of Marx and Mao see humanity as a whole, much like a massive thunderstorm, to be handled as an entire single unit, in unison under Communist and collectivist dogma, while advocates of Adam Smith Capitalism and Freedom and Liberty look at that same storm of humanity and see each the uniqueness of each individual, each raindrop. And it is that distinction that results in extreme and vastly different results.
Every important policy decision made today under Biden has virtually no real basis in actual prescribed law and very often goes against our U.S. codes, whether we speak of Biden’s disregard of contract law in association with the Keystone Pipeline, his disregard for property rights through the Eviction Moratorium, his disregard for sound economics through his Spending Bills, his disregard for science associated with both Covid and Climate change, and his complete disregard for U.S. Border and Immigration Law. Biden’s policies are aimed at compelling all Americans to submit to the collective and forego all sense of self, family, God and Country and the relinquishing of all one’s Liberty at the expense of one’s own conscience.
Everything Biden’s regime is doing is supposedly for the benefit of all Americans, according to Biden and others alongside him, and in essence “for the Greater Good”.
Please tell me how taking away one’s Right to choose their own medical treatment is for the benefit of all Americans, or playing God and stealing their wages through asinine taxes that are supposed to prevent drastic climate change as if they can, or flooding the nation with poor, uneducated foreigners bent on taking all they can take from American coffers, or spending us into oblivion and the permanent destruction of the U.S. economy. Please tell America how “social infrastructure” is anything other than money thrown into the pockets of Biden Cronies, Democratic Party Communist apparatchiks and useless, do-nothing, non-productive programs, and how that benefits anyone at all. And please, we all want to know how preventing actual peaceful protest by targeting parents angry over School Board overreaches concerning school curriculum, masks and covid mandates is actually beneficial to all America and “for the Greater Good”.
“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
Each of us has the absolute right, even now and despite anything Biden and Company say, to live our lives as we please, so long as we do no harm to others and violate their Inalienable God-given Rights in any manner. We have the right to enter into agreements freely and to reject agreements of our own free will. This coming together of our own Free Will in cooperation to see to our national defense and build a strong military as well as super-highways, a strong thriving economy, and an efficient postal service had more bearing on America’s rapid rise and success than anything forced on us against our will, which has historically always backfired on the government.
Traditionally and in America’s earliest years, the sovereignty of the individual and individual liberty was perfectly understood as not an entity that grants the individual license to do anything they wish to do. It had to be managed within a righteous understanding of righteously formatted law as understood through the Christian and Western principles of the day, and it was most usually considered through everybody’s Inalienable God-given Rights, in regard to mutually advantageous with others and self-interest and the millions of small decisions each of us makes over our lifetimes that taken on the whole effect society.
It’s perfectly reasonable and acceptable to demand equality for everybody, when speaking of equal dignity as individuals and equal treatment under the law, however, each and every time anyone has ever attempted to apply equality to economics and results for individuals, such attempts have dragged economies and entire peoples into an economic malaise and quagmire, failing miserably and resulting in the death of Freedom and Liberty.
But today it would seem, the Biden regime would tell us what constitutes a family, when and how we can open our businesses, who we can employ, and when we may buy, sell or trade in our markets. They have done everything but seize the means of production to this point and their government intrusions are largely unwelcome to many Freedom-minded Americans and they are debilitating and destructive to our society from a holistic perspective.
“There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.”
And from a different angle, no truer words were ever spoken than the ones heard in [JRH] The Fountainhead, written by Ayn Rand, who saw the onset and advent of communism in Russia that first year of 1917 and all the horrors that followed:
“Power! What do you think is power? Whips? Guns? Money? You can’t turn men into slaves unless you break their spirit. Kill their capacity to think and act on their own. Tie them together, teach them to conform, to unite, to agree, to obey. That makes one neck ready for one leash. …. Why do you suppose I denounced greatness and praised mediocrities …? Great men can’t be ruled. Why did I preach self-sacrifice? If you kill a man’s sense of personal value, he’ll submit.”
Many Americans, much like myself, are willing to fight for our Freedom and Liberty, hopefully to see many new sunrises and ultimate Freedom for all, but ever more willing to die in the fight, so our children may live free. But insanely, many more amerikkans seem almost as willing to die in their fight to build a Super-State that takes all the nation’s wealth for redistribution to their Communist and Fascist ilk, seen in the ranks of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Solidarity, Pueblo Sin Fronteras, La Raza and Open Society, no matter it comes at the cost of the loss of all liberty and total submission to an authoritarian socialist state.
America sees corporate heads, desperate to protect their niche of the market economy, willing to enforce illiberal, tyrannical diktats emanating from the Biden regime and even regular American citizens all too willing to act as informants and enforcers against the Liberty-minded Americans of our country, just as Nazi Germany witnessed many of their own set upon, imprisoned, tortured and murdered by other German citizens — not all Nazi soldiers — who were “simply doing our jobs”. We are seeing the attempt to recruit and morph the bulk of our society into a mass of barbaric psychopaths who will be more than happy to attack Freedom-minded Americans in any manner so ordered by the Biden regime.
If they are so willing to die trying to control everything and take Freedom and Liberty from me and mine, doing the Democratic Party Communists’ dirty work and enforcing this New World Order-type tyranny, so be it. At this point, I have grown more than willing to oblige them.
An amicable spit of the states as suggested by many, along the lines of Mike Nichols in a recent article, isn’t remotely feasible with very nearly half the nation currently supporting the looters and takers — the Marxists and Cancel Culture Maoists — of America. We have long since passed the point of no return, and with election mechanisms still steeped in fraud and the same Bad Actors in place currently consolidating power and continuing to weaponize the federal government against all Conservative and Christian America, the likelihood of a peaceful resolution between two antithetical ideologies is slim to none today, especially when one considers that even so-called “Red States” have large segments of Socialists, Communists and other radicals in all their most significant cities.
And in the meantime, stop enabling America’s tyrants, by listening well to the advocates of individual Liberty, living courageously and logically, and refuse to be silenced or blinded by Fascistic propaganda and absurd, poisonous lies and policies, while embracing the potential of one’s future self and saving society from the current dystopian phantasmagorias and Cancel Culture idiocy. One’s failure to do anything less in today’s political environment serves only to stain one’s own conscience and permanently scars one’s soul.
Fight for Truth, real Justice and true Freedom and Liberty for all men and women, in every public hall and government institution and courtroom, but stand ready, strong and prepared to take up arms and fight all across America if and when it ultimately becomes our last resort, and do everything humanly possible to stop the inhuman ideologies that seek to enslave all humanity.
Fight back against the Biden regime’s advocacy for Marx and Mao and the totalitarian ideologies that have historically represented the greatest threat to mankind anyone has ever witnessed, and fight for our rights to our own Life and Liberty and the Right to one’s own personal and private possessions and property that is sanctioned merely by the fact of our birth, in order to pursue one’s own happiness as he sees fit and to enter a new age of civilization whereby our society sets man free from the tyrannical edicts and diktats of little, small-minded, ignorant men.
Fight back against a Communist ideology and collectivism, which is far from any new order for the world, and the evil dark yesterday that Biden and Marx Inc would impose on all of our tomorrows, for it is only the Individual Self and Individual Liberty that has ever wrought the best, most benevolent and brightest initiatives and innovations forth over the entire history of mankind.

America is under a state of tyrannical control which in my opinion has not been experienced since the series of events that led 13 British Colonies on the North American continent to unite and declare Independence in 1776.
In a true history deprived America, many Americans might not be aware that those colonial citizens were not united in desiring to end British rule. There may have been loose unity to end British tyranny, but not necessarily to end British citizenship.
TODAY Americans are way more divided now than American colonists before, during and after 1776. I marvel that Americans exist that are 100% behind the Dem-Marxist agenda to transform America AWAY from HER Founding Principles making the State supreme in the lives of citizens rather than individual citizens supreme over how the government is operated. The supreme State dissolves WE THE PEOPLE.
Here are three essay posts highlighting that the end of WE THE PEOPLE is imminent creating Sheeple obeisance to State diktats on belief systems. UNLESS there is some kind American Great Awakening of massive resistance. It could be time for Patriots desiring to Remember Founding Liberty to shrug off any State-imposed stain of domestic terrorist and begin to chant REMEMBER 1776 much like yesteryear Texans chanted Remember The Alamo in their rebellion against tyranny.

A shocking poll conducted by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia (UVA) has revealed that most Trump voters and a significant number of Biden voters are in favor of seceding from the Union and splitting the country.
52% of Trump voters and 41% of Biden voters “at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union,” according to a shocking poll conducted by the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia.
“Significant numbers of both Trump and Biden voters show a willingness to consider violating democratic tendencies and norms if needed to serve their priorities,” the pollsters explained. “Roughly 2 in 10 Trump and Biden voters strongly agree it would be better if a ‘President could take needed actions without being constrained by Congress or courts,’ and roughly 4 in 10 (41%) of Biden and half (52%) of Trump voters at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union.”
As the Gateway Pundit reported this afternoon, “Democrats are aligning themselves with anti-American policies of censorship, destruction of billions in wealth, murder of those in their way (remember it was four Trump supporters who were murdered on Jan. 6), aligning with fascist groups like BLM and Antifa, election theft, arming the Taliban enemy with $83 billion in US military equipment, using a pandemic to steal American freedoms, false arrests of individuals for fake crimes, government harassment through the courts, and imprisonment based on fake crimes in kangaroo courts, etc.”
A report from Mediaite on the subject emphasized a similar YouGov poll conducted in June which found that 66% of Republicans in southern states support seceding from the United States, noting that Joe Biden’s recent failures in Afghanistan, as well as his handling of COVID-19 have rendered his “reunification” platform to be ineffective as his approval ratings among Americans have gone “underwater.”
The idea that the nation’s political divide has become so toxic that we should prepare from some sort of “national divorce” has largely been left to clever thought experiments best left for dinner parties and ironically detached columns. However, we’ve now arrived at a point where more than half of Trump voters “somewhat agree” that the time for secession is nigh.
Comedian and well known liberal Sarah Silverman recently echoed this call for a national divorce, suggesting the country separate into two or three countries based on political affiliation and COVID-19 policies.

While some may think we’re living more of an Animal Farm existence (pigs hatch a coup and overthrow the humans, only to end up in worse shape thanks to a dictator named Napoleon who uses propaganda to obscure his incompetence), Sarah A. Downey – operating partner at Accomplice VC (andDune fan, gamer and cosplayer) has assembled a comprehensive Twitter thread on why we’re actually living in Orwell’s other notable work – 1984, a cautionary tale of life under communism.
Presented for your edification (and click here or scroll to the bottom for Downey’s July 2020 interview with Benjamin Boyce where she opines on free speech, cancel culture and more):
Note that I’m not saying that the dystopian, totalitarian hellscape of 1984 is exactly what’s happening today. However, the last couple of years have seen some disturbing parallels emerge.
The 1984 concept will have a emoji to represent Big Brother
The current expression we’re seeing in society will have a emoji
* * *
Discouraging good relations between the sexes by only allowing unattracted people to marry; weaponizing sexual frustration into political rage
Labeling stereotypically masculine behavior “toxic;” the all-time low rate of having sex, particularly in Millennials/Gen-Z
* * *
Changing the meaning of common words/phrases instantly and punishing those who do not adapt
The redefinition (literally) overnight of phrases like “sexual preference” (used to be fine; suddenly “bigoted” and rewritten in the dictionary)
* * *
Tactical language changes, continued
Changing definitions of “racism” (to pretty much anything where there are disparate outcomes among races) and “white supremacy” (to…pretty much anything involving white people)
* * *
The ubiquitous presence of technology that delivers you content but mainly serves to spy on you (primarily the Telescreen but also cameras, mics, etc.)
Amazon Echos, Google Homes, smart TVs, mobile apps that covertly monitor you (ahem, Facebook)
* * *
The attack on objective reality as a way to demoralize and control people; “2+2=5”
People saying 2+2=4 is some sort of “racist math” washingtonexaminer.com/news/math-prof… Statements that everyone knows are true (e.g., men and women are biologically different) have become “unsayable”
* * *
Newspeak, the Party language in 1984, designed to eliminate critical thinking, free will, personal identity, self-expression, and descriptions of objective reality
Political correctness, resulting in dehumanizing language like “bodies with vaginas” for “women”
* * * The Newspeak tactic of renaming words/phrases so that disagreement is hard (e.g., removing “bad” as a word & replacing w/ “ungood”)
Slogans like “black lives matter,” where the broadness of the phrase makes it difficult to state any disagreement with its methods
* * *
“Memory-holing,” where the controlling government effectively erases a person, word, or event from history
The Party changing the status quo in real time, then acting like it’s always been this way (“we’ve always been at war with Eurasia”)
E.g., Biden saying in 2020 that vaccines won’t be mandatory (bbc.com/news/world-us-…), then making them mandatory for millions in 2021

Another example of “we’ve always been at war with Eurasia” below:
The sudden shift in summer 2020 from “if you’re out in big groups, you’re literally killing people” to “if you’re not out protesting in big groups, you’re a bad person” cbc.ca/radio/asithapp…

Another example of “we’ve always been at war with Eurasia” below:
E.g., the current administration expressing hesitance about *certain shots* under Trump, and now behaving as though such hesitancy is inconceivable

Tiered society: the elitist Inner Party on top, then the Outer Party, then the Proles; the Inner Party have special privileges and exemptions from rules
“Rules for thee but not for me;” e.g. @GavinNewsom‘s French Laundry dinner; only staff wearing masks at the Met Gala
* * *
Doublethink/speak (phrases that are obviously false but stated as true): “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY; IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”
E.g., CNN reporting on “mostly peaceful protests” in front of burning buildings thehill.com/homenews/media… “2 weeks to slow the spread” lasting 563 days

The mandate that there’s only one “correct” political party and set of opinions (The Party’s)
Many people’s repeated insistence that they’re “on the right side of history” and the increasing lack of tolerance for any diversity of opinion washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/…

“Vaporization:” “Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten.”
Severe cancellations where one becomes an “unperson:” fired, socially isolated, etc.

Indoctrination of children so that they become spies who turn in their parents for “wrongthink”
The increasingly political stance of many teachers who take it upon themselves to transfer political beliefs to children rather than educate them neutrally/factually

It’s no longer a question of whether the government will lock up Americans for defying its mandates but when.
Here’s what we know: The government has the means, the muscle and the motivation to detain individuals who resist its orders and do not comply with its mandates in a vast array of prisons, detention centers, and FEMA concentration camps paid for with taxpayer dollars.
It’s just a matter of time.
It no longer matters what the hot-button issue might be (vaccine mandates, immigration, gun rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, healthcare, criticizing the government, protesting election results, etc.) or which party is wielding its power like a hammer.
The groundwork has already been laid.
Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the president and the military can detain and imprison American citizens with no access to friends, family or the courts if the government believes them to be a terrorist.
After all, it doesn’t take much to be considered a terrorist anymore, especially given that the government likes to use the words “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably.
For instance, the Department of Homeland Security broadly defines extremists as individuals, military veterans and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”
Indeed, if you believe in and exercise your rights under the Constitution (namely, your right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share your political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign), you could be at the top of the government’s terrorism watch list.
The government also has a growing list – shared with fusion centers and law enforcement agencies – of ideologies, behaviors, affiliations and other characteristics that could flag someone as suspicious and result in their being labeled potential enemies of the state.
This is what happens when you not only put the power to determine who is a potential danger in the hands of government agencies, the courts and the police but also give those agencies liberal authority to lock individuals up for perceived wrongs.
It’s a system just begging to be abused by power-hungry bureaucrats desperate to retain their power at all costs.
It’s happened before.
As history shows, the U.S. government is not averse to locking up its own citizens for its own purposes.
One need only go back to the 1940s, when the federal government proclaimed that Japanese-Americans, labeled potential dissidents, could be put in concentration (a.k.a. internment) camps based only upon their ethnic origin, to see the lengths the federal government will go to in order to maintain “order” in the homeland.
The U.S. Supreme Court validated the detention program in Korematsu v. US (1944), concluding that the government’s need to ensure the safety of the country trumped personal liberties.
Roberts’ statements provide little assurance of safety in light of the government’s tendency to sidestep the rule of law when it suits its purposes. Pointing out that such blatantly illegal detentions could happen again – with the blessing of the courts – Justice Scalia once warned, “In times of war, the laws fall silent.”
In fact, the creation of detention camps domestically has long been part of the government’s budget and operations, falling under the jurisdiction of FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
FEMA’s murky history dates back to the 1970s, when President Carter created it by way of an executive order merging many of the government’s disaster relief agencies into one large agency.
During the 1980s, however, reports began to surface of secret military-type training exercises carried out by FEMA and the Department of Defense. Code named Rex-84, 34 federal agencies, including the CIA and the Secret Service, were trained on how to deal with domestic civil unrest.
FEMA’s role in creating top-secret American internment camps is well-documented.
But be careful who you share this information with: it turns out that voicing concerns about the existence of FEMA detention camps is among the growing list of opinions and activities which may make a federal agent or government official think you’re an extremist (a.k.a. terrorist), or sympathetic to terrorist activities, and thus qualify you for indefinite detention under the NDAA.
Also included in that list of “dangerous” viewpoints are advocating states’ rights, believing the state to be unnecessary or undesirable, “conspiracy theorizing,” concern about alleged FEMA camps, opposition to war, organizing for “economic justice,” frustration with “mainstream ideologies,” opposition to abortion, opposition to globalization, and ammunition stockpiling.
Now if you’re going to have internment camps on American soil, someone has to build them.
Thus, in 2006, it was announced that Kellogg Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, had been awarded a $385 million contract to build American detention facilities. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.”
Of course, these detention camps will have to be used for anyone viewed as a threat to the government, and that includes political dissidents.
So it’s no coincidence that the U.S. government has, since the 1980s, acquired and maintained, without warrant or court order, a database of names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation.
As Salon reports, this database, reportedly dubbed “Main Core,” is to be used by the Army and FEMA in times of national emergency or under martial law to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security. There are at least 8 million Americans in the Main Core database.
Fast forward to 2009, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released two reports, one on “Rightwing Extremism,” which broadly defines rightwing extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” and one on “Leftwing Extremism,” which labeled environmental and animal rights activist groups as extremists.
Incredibly, both reports use the words terrorist and extremist interchangeably.
That same year, the DHS launched Operation Vigilant Eagle, which calls for surveillance of military veterans returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and other far-flung places, characterizing them as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”
These reports indicate that for the government, so-called extremism is not a partisan matter. Anyone seen as opposing the government – whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between – is a target, which brings us back, full circle, to the question of whether the government will exercise the power it claims to possess to detain anyone perceived as a threat, i.e., anyone critical of the government.
The short answer is – yes.
The longer answer is more complicated.
Despite what some may think, the Constitution is no magical incantation against government wrongdoing. Indeed, it’s only as effective as those who abide by it.
However, without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard it and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, it provides little to no protection against SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions and the like.
Frankly, the courts and the police have meshed in their thinking to such an extent that anything goes when it’s done in the name of national security, crime fighting and terrorism.
Consequently, America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.
We seem to be coming full circle on many fronts.
Consider that two decades ago we were debating whether non-citizens—for example, so-called enemy combatants being held at Guantanamo Bay and Muslim-Americans rounded up in the wake of 9/11—were entitled to protections under the Constitution, specifically as they relate to indefinite detention. Americans weren’t overly concerned about the rights of non-citizens then, and now we’re the ones in the unenviable position of being targeted for indefinite detention by our own government.
Similarly, most Americans weren’t unduly concerned when the U.S. Supreme Court gave Arizona police officers the green light to stop, search and question anyone – ostensibly those fitting a particular racial profile – they suspected might be an illegal immigrant. A decade later, the cops largely have carte blanche authority to stop any individual, citizen and non-citizen alike, they suspect might be doing something illegal (mind you, in this age of overcriminalization, that could be anything from feeding the birds to growing exotic orchids).
Likewise, you still have a sizeable portion of the population today unconcerned about the government’s practice of spying on Americans, having been brainwashed into believing that if you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.
It will only be a matter of time before they learn the hard way that in a police state, it doesn’t matter who you are or how righteous you claim to be, because eventually, you will be lumped in with everyone else and everything you do will be “wrong” and suspect.
It turns out that we are Soylent Green, being cannibalized by a government greedily looking to squeeze every last drop out of us.
The 1973 film Soylent Green, starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson, is set in 2022 in an overpopulated, polluted, starving New York City whose inhabitants depend on synthetic foods manufactured by the Soylent Corporation for survival.
Heston plays a policeman investigating a murder who discovers the grisly truth about the primary ingredient in the wafer, Soylent Green, which is the principal source of nourishment for a starved population. “It’s people. Soylent Green is made out of people,” declares Heston’s character. “They’re making our food out of people. Next thing they’ll be breeding us like cattle for food.”
Oh, how right he was.
Soylent Green is indeed people or, in our case, Soylent Green is our own personal data, repossessed, repackaged and used by corporations and the government to entrap us in prisons of our own making.
Without constitutional protections in place to guard against encroachments on our rights when power, technology and militaristic governance converge, it won’t be long before we find ourselves, much like Edward G. Robinson’s character in Soylent Green, looking back on the past with longing, back to an age where we could speak to whom we wanted, buy what we wanted, think what we wanted, and go where we wanted without those thoughts, words and movements being tracked, processed and stored by corporate giants such as Google, sold to government agencies such as the NSA and CIA, and used against us by militarized police with their army of futuristic technologies.

Twenty-years ago seems like yesterday when it comes to the Islamic Terrorist attack of 9/11 on American. I remember the hot anger I felt after realizing the attack came due to the hatred of American Liberty and Religious Liberty. And I am saddened I have grandchildren who are clueless toward foreign and ideological attacks that take American lives. Justin Smith revived those memories.

Twenty years ago on September 11th 2001, Americans endured the worst attack against our homeland anyone had ever witnessed in our entire history, and many of us had hot tears of anger streaming down our faces, as the horror of it all evoked a wide array of emotions, from fear to sorrow to anger. And we swore we would “Never Forget”. We swore to hunt down the perpetrators of this [JOS] heinous terrorist attack against America, the Al Qaeda, and eradicate them and to proceed to ensure that nothing similar would ever occur.
All these years later, I recall watching the jet airliners crashing into the Twin Towers, in real time, on the television, questioning the moment of the first impact until I saw the second jet flying low turn toward the second tower like a heat seeking missile, and I still have the sensation of the hot tears of anger on my cheeks as the Towers fell that fateful morning as I understood I had just witnessed murder most foul. I remember the thousands of our fellow Americans, innocent people just going about their days business, trapped in the World Trade Center’s towers and waiting for a rescue that didn’t come, as scores of people leaped from the towers to their deaths to escape the inferno that followed. I recall hearing the messages saved for all posterity that were sent to loved ones in recordings and phone calls from the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 filled with love, hope and sadness, with some noting the likelihood of their death.
[Blog Editor: I found a Youtube audio of three calls from UA Flight 93 to loved ones:
3 passengers call loved ones during the highjack.]
The strongest, richest, most modern and powerful country in the world, America was vulnerable that morning precisely because of its strength, its new found love of the society killing multiculturalism and its respect for all its people and visitors. So when those Sons of Allah showed up from Saudi Arabia, the United Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon, nobody told them they couldn’t attend flight training. Nobody told those terrorists in training who followed they couldn’t enroll in our universities to study chemistry and biology and those things necessary for waging bacteriological warfare, even when they suspicioned they might try to dose our reservoirs and unleash a horrible and deadly disaster on us. Our strength was also the weakness that allowed them to attack our science and technology by hijacking jets to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, American symbols of wealth, modernity and power.
Now, twenty years later, those of us who recognized the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon as an escalation of the war against America and, in fact, against Western civilization by Islam and its allies, and swore we would “Never Forget”, are angry to see so many Americans have actually forgotten or no longer care. We’re angry that after four previous U.S. presidents swore to destroy Al Qaeda, even going so far as to suggest they had destroyed Al Qaeda on several occasions, a feckless, criminally negligent, treasonous and cowardly Biden regime has allowed the Taliban and Al Qaeda to come back even stronger and better armed than before and exponentially better positioned to wreak havoc and commit more acts of terror against America and Europe than it was in 2001, a basic betrayal of everything that has gone before us and a betrayal of the memory of all the victims of the September 11th attacks.
There are no tears today, but I’m angrier than I’ve ever been over the past few week’s events and now this new development, of which all could have been prevented, if only we had competent people in our government and our military leadership, who didn’t now actually think they could cooperate with the Taliban in the future, suggested by General Milley in a recent news conference. However, all America will shed a flood of tears, if our stranded Americans die at the hands of the Taliban or Al Qaeda, due to some new miscalculation by the idiots of the Biden regime, especially so close to the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks.
It’s purely surreal that America has gone from declaring it would totally defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda, very nearly completing the job at one time, to appeasing them, emboldening them, strengthening them and even begging them for their cooperation, as the Taliban flag now flies over what was once the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan.
Imagine sitting on that tarmac in Mazar-i-Sharif in fear for your life and wondering if anyone is coming to rescue you, to save your life, not knowing if you will be taken off the plane and executed and the next hour or minute might mark your last moments of earth. Any harm or deaths of Americans at this point will fall directly on Biden and his regime, to be remembered for all time as another miserable betrayal.
We’ve arrived at this destination largely from a misshaped and erroneous understanding of Islam and the Middle East and Central Asia. Although many of the seemingly so-called “moderate” Muslims might have jealously eyed the modernization of the West, they desired to attain a modern Islamic society through Islamic led initiatives on national and global stages, and ultimately they’ve always hated the West, our freedoms and all America represents, despite any propaganda to the contrary.They hate the West still today, simply because it exists and largely due to the defeats it has handed Islam, fromMalta to Spain [Important Battle & lengthy Reconquista] to Vienna on and near September 11th over the centuries; especially the defeat by the Polish King Jan III Sobieski who claimed his victory at Vienna on September 12th 1683 a victory for Christianity and gave thanks to Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna.
There’s also the other aspect of this dynamic, in the alliance that has existed between America’s Communists and many in the Democratic Party and the adherents and numerous advocates for Islam in America, largely since the 1970s but especially with the creation of the [JOS] Muslim American Society in 1993 and several other organizations such as the [JOS] Islamic Society of North America. These traitors have attempted to raise the supremacist dogma of Islam and Marx to the same level with our Western and Christian virtues and principles, demanding they be made equal; but they never mention any other religion in the same vein of thought, not for the Buddhists, Hindus, Confucianists, Greek and Russian Orthodox or anybody else. At the same time, they rail against “the American imperialists” and “the Israel occupation” and spit on the memories of many fine men and women who fought to regain or safeguard the Freedom and Liberty they currently enjoy, during two world wars and numerous lesser conflicts just as deadly and bloody. Yes, the American Leftist bastards have become the good ally of the Islamic bastards who want to kill or enslave you and me, the normal average American patriot, in the name of their contrived, false “god” Allah.
[Blog Editor: KNOW the enemy of Freedom & Liberty – The RED (Marxist) and GREEN (Islam) AXIS:
Isn’t it sad and reprehensible to see? The American Leftists have waved their rainbow flag for the past two decades to protest every honest step any administration has ever made to keep America safe. But hypocrites that they are, the world never sees them wave their rainbow flags to condemn Islamic terrorism and those who use suicide bombs and remote controlled bombs and improvised explosive devices to kill Americans and Westerners, or the imams and mullahs who preach jihad and “holy war” against America, while smiling and hiding behind a facade of peace.
More the rule seen across Islam than the exception, George Habash, the head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stated in the 1970s that their revolution was not confined to Palestine and was a world-wide initiative. He called the entirety of Western civilization the enemy of Islam, including America, as he kept true to Islamic doctrine that call for continued jihad until everything outside of the House of Islam has been defeated and absorbed by Islam [Blog Editor: I could not locate Habash’s specific thought that Western Civ was the enemy of Islam, But follow the asterisk (*) below this paragraph showing Justin’s Habash is definitely close]; further noting in a [JOS] 1972interview (see pages 131 &132 of Force of Reason) conducted by the impeccable, world renown journalist, Oriana Fallaci, that “the entire Arab Nations must go to war against Europe and America … that from now on there will be no peace for the West.”
*[‘Habash saw no contradiction between this ideological shift and his national identity. In this regard, he considered there was a perfect harmony between “my Arab nationalism, my being Christian, my Islamic culture and my progressive Marxism … I am a Marxist, leftist by culture, the Islamic heritage is an essential part of my thought structure, Islam is the most important component of Arab nationalism, and Arab nationalism is an essential part of my being.” He considered dialectical materialism to be the essence of Marxism.’ — George Habash; Palestinian Journeys]
Although I am a Christian, I lay no particular claim to being a very good one. I especially have trouble with the precepts of turning the other cheek and forgiveness, when faced with particularly egregious and heinous violations against me or mine and all that I love.
America and every president involved in the Afghanistan Theater spent far too much time worrying about the politics of the thing, instead of going into the country and turning its landscape red with the blood of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, killing everyone in their families, everyone who they ever called “friend”, anyone who ever conducted business with them, and even their goats and sheep. Instead of showing them any mercy, we should have made damned certain they were completely and definitively defeated, in the manner of Nagasaki and Dresden, and saved the mercy and benevolence for last.
Trying to fight a war with one hand tied behind our back and as a supporting force to the Afghan national Army is exactly why we are now faced with another dismal situation as we look to soon commemorate and honor those who died on September 11th 2001, whether they were the innocent civilians caught in a freak twist of fate or the good men and women of the first responders, the policemen and firemen, who answered the call that day and tried to save as many people as they could.
September 11th draws close and on the morning of, I’ll recall that the CIA had forewarning of the attack and failed to see the urgency in making certain the FBI and our military were fully apprised and aware of the possibility that such an attack was imminent. I’ll remember the passengers of the four airliners that were transformed into bombs, and especially those little children, like the four year old little girl, [JOS] Juliana Valentine McCourt, whose tiny body was destroyed when United Airlines Flight 175 slammed into the South Tower and disintegrated. I’ll remember the heroes of Flight 93 who fought the Islamic Jihadi terrorist and prevented the airliner from being flown into the White House. I’ll remember those people working in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and all the firemen who died trying to save them, and I will light a candle and say a long prayer for them all.
I’ve never forgotten that from start to finish nearly an hour and a half had elapsed. By 10:03 A.M., nearly 3,000 innocent Americans — loved ones, friends, and neighbors — were dead.
I’ve never forgotten that a unified cry of “Allahu Akbar” was heard reverberating throughout the Islamic world that day, as Muslims laughed, rejoiced and celebrated the catastrophe, misery, pain and grief that fell upon America, in much the same manner as they celebrated the Taliban’s recent victory over the U.S.
I’ve never forgotten nor forgiven, and I never will. I understand who and what killed our people on September 11th 2001; and just as sure as I am that they will come for us again, I know history and America isn’t through with them yet.
And in the meantime, I’ll be praying for the living and our fine American souls currently held hostage in Afghanistan, in hopes that some group, any group, is able to effect their deliverance and the safe release and safe passage home for them, in a manner that seems to be beyond Biden and his useless anti-American regime, that brays one meaningless assurance after another, placing the onus on the trapped Americans and making it clear that Biden has essentially washed his hands of the entire sorry, sordid affair. I’ll pray that America won’t find another occasion in the coming days to cry hot tears, or tears of any kind, due to one more American death at the hands of Al Qaeda or the Taliban, on September 11th 2021 or any other day in the near future.

Sleepy Joe – Beijing Joe – Dementia Joe – Creepy Joe
Before faux-President Biden leaves the stolen POTUS Office, add Taliban Joe to the growing list of nicknames. Justin Smith provides excellent reasoning indicating Biden is more Taliban-friendly than caring one iota for Americans.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Americans see the pictures of the Afghan women and their little children and feel sympathy for their plight, and this is being played to the last card to persuade Americans of the need for us all to accept a massive invasion of largely unvetted Afghan refugees and an unacceptable national security risk. Very few actually qualify for Special Immigration Visas, and many more are either criminals such as Ghader Heydari, a convicted rapist previously deported from America, or actual terrorists who killed our own soldiers and “refugees” on the terror watch list, like the one detected at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar; and, as such, America’s good people mustn’t allow Taliban Joe, a dishonest, lying, elitist anti-American to use his military failure in Afghanistan [JOS] as an excuse to bring thousands of more people into America, who hold views largely antithetical to America’s virtues and principles, to advance his and the Democratic Party’s agenda to further dismantle America, when they can and should be just as easily resettled in some other Islamic country of their own choosing.
The Afghan people are comprised of numerous tribes, such as the Pashtun, Kyrgyz, Arab, Turkmen, Baloch, Tajik, Uzbek and others, Sunni and Shiite Muslims, that were loosely held under control through most of the 20th century under a monarchy, until approximately 1963 when a Maoist movement rolled across the country and caused a great deal more unrest. But they have warred among themselves for centuries, as well as against all outsiders, and the war Biden says he ended will go on for many long decades yet, perhaps centuries, with the exception that America will remain its primary target. So let Afghan wishing to escape bide their time during a complete security screening somewhere else, like Tajikistan or Pakistan, anywhere else other than a U.S. military base or some city in fly-over America.
During the September 1st news conference, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that the U.S. military had evacuated a total of six thousand Americans. That would suggest there could be as many as five thousand Americans still left stranded as real live Taliban hostages, when one recalls the lowest figure given at the beginning of evacuation operations was eleven thousand Americans were there In Country, with a high confidence that as many as 40,000 total were spread across Afghanistan. Austin also noted that 120,000 Afghan nationals were evacuated, which reveals that 95 percent of the evacuees were not Americans.
The question all American patriots must be screaming over the phone to their Congressmen and anybody else in high office they can reach is: “Why wasn’t the greatest, most intense effort expended towards getting our fellow Americans out of Afghanistan, rather than focusing so much on the Afghanis?”
At best, it was an extremely difficult, very nearly impossible, task for U.S. soldiers to attempt to properly and fully vet all the Afghan evacuees who claimed to have fought with or served U.S. Armed Forces and government agencies, while they were so besieged under such dire and dangerous circumstances, and if it is going to happen at all, it must now occur in whichever Middle Eastern countries are willing to hold them, before they are allowed to continue to the United States. But, this job has become pretty much impossible now that we no longer have any personnel in the region, since we certainly can’t rely on the Taliban to tell us the truth about any Ahmed the Terrorist and say, “Oh no … don’t let him through.”
“Mr. President, we are facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least ten to fifteen thousand international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis thrown into this, so that dimension needs to be taken account of. … (noting later) … There are agreements with the Taliban that we [or ‘you’ (which wasn’t made) clear] are not previously aware of, and because of your air force was extremely cautious in attacking (the Taliban) them.”
Even though we hear the Mainstream Media breathlessly tell us time and again how well all the evacuees have been vetted, with thousands evacuated willy-nilly and in a panicked accelerated manner for most of the evacuees there isn’t any real way to tell exactly who they are. Some of them could well be some of the international terrorists Ghani spoke of on July 23rd. And as we saw too often over the twenty years In Country, vetting isn’t foolproof; vetting is only as good as the initial information one has to start the process, and too many of these so-called “refugees” offer next to nothing from the start regarding personal background information, making the vetting process as it now stands trying to ignore the usual two year fourteen steps program largely irrelevant.
However, the U.S. federal government absolutely should honor any documented, verifiable and well proven agreement to bring any Afghan who served honorably, side by side, with our soldiers and faced the same Taliban and Al Qaeda bullets, as soldiers or interpreters and never had the nature of their trustworthiness called into question over a period of years or timeframe named in any agreement. This shouldn’t mean that any Afghan who worked a few weeks or a few months as an office worker for some commander or in the U.S. Embassy gets an automatic pass, especially when we have seen numerous cases over the years where “interpreters” [JOS] actually were later found to be Taliban agents, usually after they killed some U.S. soldiers with surprise ambushes and automatic rifle fire and bombings, [JOS]similar to those 257 insider attacks in 2019 that killed 172 U.S. soldiers.
In his usual incredible manner, Biden’s people have created a new program to circumvent Congress and existing immigration and refugees laws, exhibiting that there may also be more at stake than a simple rescue of Afghanis in actual real need of rescuing. On [JOS]August 2nd, the State Department announced “a Prior 2 (P-2) designation granting U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) access for certain Afghan nationals and their eligible family members,” essentially removing the criteria of one demonstrating a true fear of persecution. Any Afghan who was remotely connected to the U.S. government is now eligible to come to America, through this unwarranted expansion of the refugee program and the negation of real need.
This is what Democrats have done from the turn of the 20th century when they assaulted America’s immigration law and ended the process at Ellis Island that was designed to keep out undesirables such as criminals and radicals with ideas so antithetical to our Founding Principles as to be deemed unacceptable, like Communists, anarchists, and yes, practitioners of Islam, an ideology that demands to reign supreme above all others. That they continuously advocate for more Muslims, now [JOS]Afghans of which ninety-nine percent wanted to live under Sharia Law according to 2011 and 2013 PEW polls, exhibits more of the same subversion of America, since they know that most of these people will lie, swear their allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and America and still never fully assimilate, as they ride the immigration benefits afforded them.
America shouldn’t expect anything less from its enemy from within, Taliban Joe and his Democratic Party Communists who have never seen a U.S. enemy they didn’t want to hug or an immigration ceiling they didn’t want to break if the new “immigrants” were as anti-American as them and seen as potential future Democratic Party voters. This need to subvert U.S. sovereignty in the name of Marx is found at the core of their little black hearts, so what’s a few hundred thousand more Afghan immigrants to them, in the grand scheme of things, when they’ve already shredded our borders and immigration law these past few months, by bringing in 800,000 illegal aliens along with some 750,000 legal immigrants, in their desire to change the political environment for years to come with thousands more like Ilhan Omar and to finally one day implement a totally authoritarian Socialist regime, end the Republic and complete their fundamental transformation of America.
Say “Good-bye” to any Constitutional mandate for U.S. “presidents” to protect and defend America. Taliban Joe seems determined to do just the opposite, as he declares “Mission Accomplished”.
“During the past decades, the U.S. has witnessed Islamic inspired terror plots, designed to kill hundreds and thousands, foiled by the Grace of God, luck and good investigative work and intelligence information. Najibullah Zazi hoped to detonate a triacetone triperoxide-based explosive in the New York subway close to September 11, 2009; in April 2013, Ahmed Abassi, a chemical engineering graduate student at Laval University in Quebec, planned to murder upwards of 100,000 people, by contaminating the water supply of a major U.S. city. ….. Border agents are finding items like ‘In Memory of Our Martyrs’, a book documenting suicide-bombings, which was found near Casa Grande, AZ in January 2012. And, two months later, Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen released a report quoting Abdullah al-Nafsi, a Muslim cleric, saying, “… one man with the courage to carry a suitcase of anthrax through the tunnels from Mexico to the United States could kill 330,000 Americans in one hour.”
Reviews the photos and videos of the C-17 transports and commercial charters leaving out of Kabul Airport during most of last week, and one sees that very few women and children found their way on board. And for all practical intent and purposes, once the doors of those planes closed on the tarmac in Kabul, no matter the potential security threat from anyone aboard, they all basically became permanent U.S. residents, despite all assurances to the contrary, just you wait and see.
America will most certainly witness a renewal of Islamic inspired terror attacks on America’s soil in the coming months, because Taliban Joe doesn’t give a damn about Americans or America.
However badly one may feel for the unfortunate and truly innocent Afghans, like the little children flashed across our television screens, as Americans we all should be much more concerned over those Americans that Taliban Joe so callously and nonchalantly left behind to serve as hostages for the Taliban, as he also abandons any semblance of a pro-America immigration policy. No one should really give a good damn if not even one more Afghan of the highest character and trustworthy nature isn’t brought to America as long as just one American is left in Afghanistan against his wishes, because of Taliban Joe’s demented need for a photo opportunity on September 11th 2021 as the man who ended the Afghan War, and damn the cost to America in the years to come.
Tell Joe to bring our people home.
The war keeps coming home.

Paul Sutliff sent two Youtube links relating to an in interview on Sophie’s Choice conducted by Karina Schmidt (spelled by listening phonetically – unsure of correct spelling) about Pauls most recent book “The Cancer of Civilization Jihad” and the other about Beijing Biden’s Afghanistan debacle.
I am reversing the order of the email because Paul’s Afghanistan thoughts is a little over a 4-minute video and the Sophie’s Voice interview is detailed and a little over one-hour.
Misinformation abounds claiming that this fiasco was not planned. Why are media professionals not asking about the plan that removed citizens first being removed two months ahead? This was done to force America to accept 100,000 plus Muslims into America.]
For two weeks I have been talking about this on The Sutliffian Report.
Even though post from Justin Smith is late on details, these details on the FAKE-Administration management of the U.S. Military departure from Afghanistan is a blood-stain on Stolen-Election Biden will NEVER be washed away. Justin points to a new nickname to add to an already long list of pejorative descriptors – TALIBAN BIDEN.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
The American Flag is flying at half-staff in the aftermath of two bombs being detonated in Kabul on Thursday, August 26th 2021, around 8:30 AM CST our time, one at the airport and one at the nearby Baron Hotel, and all Taliban Joe can do is continue denying any real responsibility for what has unfolded, since he ordered U.S. troops to close down Bagram Air Base and seven other installations in the first week of July. Everything from that point on facilitated an increase of terrorist attacks around the country and the fall of the Afghan government, emboldened the Taliban, and resulted in the “A Team” of terrorists being assembled and placed in the Afghan seat of government and a predictably dangerous situation and a worst case scenario for the evacuation of American citizens and the terrorist attacks that left thirteen U.S. Marines dead and eighteen wounded, along with scores of Afghan casualties.
This is the worst U.S. policy failure in all American history.
Joe Biden owns this bloody, deadly attack on our U.S. Marines, since his evacuation of Bagram Air Base and the retreat of our forces allowed the Taliban to release some of the worst Al Qaeda and Isis terrorists known to the free world and put them back on the battlefield. He owns this because he has allowed the Taliban to dictate to him the terms of America’s retreat, essentially America’s surrender, as well as following such an incredibly weak security plan for the Kabul Airport that it boggles the mind.
Biden actually left the U.S. evacuations operations and process reliant upon the Taliban for help in assuring the security of Hamid Karzai International Airport, which is putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Whether one speaks of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS Khorasan or the Haqqani, they are all one in the same and interchangeable in their hatred for America and their desire to kill Americans, and one can rest assured that the Taliban allowed this bomber to creep through the perimeter unnoticed until he got to his target and unleashed hell and death all about him.
Does anyone really believe the Taliban were sincere in their condemnation of this terrorist attack? They are ecstatic and jumping for joy on the inside, no matter how well they disguise their outward facial appearances in somber concern for the dead and wounded, as they continue to demand all U.S. forces must be out of Afghanistan, with or without our fellow countrymen.
As reprehensible and disgusting as it is to note, the Biden administration had warning of impending ISIS Khorasan attacks on Hamid Karzai International Airport for several days, which made specific note of a bomb being carried or placed outside the airport gates, so it’s hard to understand why more wasn’t done to tighten security and even to step out and neutralize these terrorists, to kill them with extreme prejudice.
Please note that the Biden Administration had even released an official warning the very day before the explosive devices unleashed their destruction and the horrific deaths that followed. The Level 4 Travel Advisory from “The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan” [operating from the airport now] read in part:
“Because of security threats outside the gates of Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so.”
We haven’t had anyone killed in Afghanistan since February of 2020, and now, after Biden’s hasty retreat and policy of appeasement, America has suffered the worst loss since the Extortion 17 tragedy [Blog Editor: Mostly Left-Wing fact checkers will tell Dementia-Joe had nothing to do the Extortion 17 travesty, but it has been my discovery these fact checkers blatantly to protect Leftist interests and agendas – especially Dementia-Joe. I suspect there is no smoking gun Dementia-Joe leaked SEAL names due to Leftist efficiency in covering their tracks, suspicions persist: Noisy Room article from 8/7/2020] on August 6th 2011, when we lost 30 Americans — Special Warfare Operators/ Seal Team Six — to the terrorists in Wardak Province. And we more than likely would have stopped this attack on Kabul, if our Afghan allies and eyes on the ground, local intelligence operatives, weren’t having to deal with thousands of newly released Al Qaeda and ISIS, fighting as they also run for their lives.
Looking tired and defeated, Biden insisted his decisions to this point were correct and necessary, but nothing could be more false. This is the man who has overturned every single Trump policy that he possibly could, whether we speak of the Keystone Pipeline or the border and our nation’s overall security. Nothing prevented him — the “President” and Commander-In-Chief — from demanding a feasible, effective evacuation plan from his Top Military Brass and telling the Taliban we would withdraw our military after we had seen all our American citizens safely home.
He didn’t have to stick to any timetable that leaves Americans behind, as he now insists on doing. With incredible gall and temerity, he stood before the cameras today and mumbled about continuing to try to get any and all Americans out, “who want to leave”, AFTER U.S. troops completely withdraw by August 31st, essentially signing many of these Americans’ death sentences and ensuring that those who aren’t murdered right away will become the Taliban’s hostages, to be done with as they wish and used as leverage against the Biden administration for God only knows what.
But every day, each time he takes to the podium, it’s as if he is unsure of whether or not he is actually in charge of anything, much less the most powerful office in the entire world, and this was made painfully obvious as he suggested he “was instructed to call on” certain reporters for the question and answer segment that followed his national address. He is heading at the head of the United States of America, still the most powerful nation on earth; but, all that power means absolutely nothing, if it’s not properly put to use.
It’s important to tell America that Afghanistan fell because Taliban Joe made sure it had to fall. He undermined the Afghan government at every step, violating President Trump’s original withdrawal agreement by excluding Ashraf Ghani’s government from talks the Biden administration had with the Taliban. He pulled much needed funds to maintain air support from the Afghan Security Forces, which gave them their edge over the Taliban in July, and when he pulled most of the U.S. military out too and closed down Bagram, our Afghan forces saw the writing on the wall.
Many operatives who kept our own intelligence agencies appraised of the situation on the ground in various parts of the country went dark, as they had to find new ways to hide, run and fight, yes fight. Many Afghanis are still fighting in Afghanistan despite what Joe has asserted, especially in Northern Afghanistan.
The environment in Afghanistan had been largely stabilized and the Taliban couldn’t have mounted so successful a campaign and seized so many provinces so rapidly, if not for actions by Joe Biden. It was almost as though he was their ally much more than an ally to President Ashraf Ghani and the Afghan National Army. And such as it was, we would have been significantly better served by keeping a military presence there to fill the power vacuum in Afghanistan and retain leverage over China and Russia in the region and our own influence in the Near East Theater, for a litany of reasons that do, in fact, serve America’s vital national security interests, in light of both China’s and Russia’s most recent aggressions against America.
On August 26th, Biden swore he would hunt down those behind the bombings and extract vengeance for America, but he didn’t go into any details on how he proposed to do so. However, it’s a certainty that he won’t be able to do so without boots on the ground or, at the very least, the Afghan intelligence network that had been nurtured by our soldiers through the years.
Rather than continue down this path of folly and continued defeat, Biden, or whoever is pulling his strings, must reverse course and tell the Taliban we will leave in our own good time and not until every last American has been evacuated safely; and then Biden must reinsert whatever number of soldiers necessary to successfully complete this mission, with orders to enter the streets of Kabul and kill anybody carrying a rifle, who isn’t an ally or an American trying to leave Afghanistan.
Exhibiting some of the most dishonorable actions seen from any Commander-In-Chief in many long years, Joe Biden is essentially handicapping our U.S. Armed Forces right out of the starting gate, but all need not be lost. Except it is going to be for the lack of any real leaders in his administration and the lack of a capable president.
Biden’s stubborn belief that he is right above all the military strategists who say he is more than just wrong has already enabled the growth of a stronger and more capable Terrorist Association led by former Gitmo prisoner, Khairullah Khairkhwa [released in 2014 by Obama], armed with U.S. weapons, and an Al Qaeda that’s much stronger than when we first invaded Afghanistan, and his callous indifference to the lives of our Afghan allies and American lives has set the stage for thousands of Americans to be left behind to be held hostage or murdered. And, his numerous lies, told with an air of self-righteousness, has set the stage for another attack similar to 9/11 in the not too distant future, as he attempts to wash his hands of Afghanistan, with the blood and sacrifice of American soldiers and citizens alike.
However, despite all Biden’s disingenuous talk of getting America out of “a forever war”, no one should believe that leaving Afghanistan will end Islam’s and the new, improved Terror Association’s war against America. He’s just surrendered to the Taliban and ensured that Afghanistan will once again become a way station for terrorists and Islamic jihadis who want to bring harm to America.
Aside from all this, there isn’t a detergent or solvent strong enough to remove the blood of our good and decent young Marines from Biden’s hands. His hands will remain stained with their blood ’til his own dying day.

“And even now, when I dream I hear the men and the donkeys in the desert scream” ~ [JOS]Johnny Cash Drive On (Justin Smith: poetic license)

Let’s hope and pray that the last words our fellow Americans hear aren’t “Allahu Akbar” as they try to escape Afghanistan.
America is witnessing a known eleven thousand, possibly as many as forty thousand of their fellow Americans now trapped in Afghanistan, by the Taliban terrorists and Al Qaeda enemies of America, while Joe Biden continues to misrepresent the facts on the ground and deflect from the massive mistakes he and his people have made in the months and weeks leading up to this unbelievable policy disaster. Biden is lying to America and he has placed American lives at the mercy of the Taliban, by placing a misguided and even delusional faith in “their word” that they will allow Americans safe-passage to the airport; and he seems to be fine with leaving Americans behind to face a possible hostage situation, like we witnessed when the Revolutionary Guard held fifty-two Americans hostage for 444 days.
Every other NATO ally in the country is out in the Afghan countryside searching for their stranded countrymen and escorting them back to evacuation points, and yet incredulously, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently stated that the United States military currently doesn’t have the capability to go out into the countryside to ensure our people safe-passage to the Kabul airport. But today, August 20th, Joe Biden essentially suggested he would do so at such a time as it appears that Americans cannot make it to the airport safely on their own. (Justin Smith – see 26 min 53 sec mark):
[Blog Editor] C-SPAN VIDEO: Defense Department Briefing on Taliban Takeover of Afghanistan
This would almost be humorous to watch, if it wasn’t such a deadly serious matter for so many thousands of Americans, and Afghans too, especially in light of the manner our military has so firmly controlled Afghanistan up ’til now. As Austin delivered that one unbelievable point, General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff looked as if his wife had just shot his favorite coonhound.
The UK has sent soldiers into the countryside to help their people, and Germany has sent out helicopters, as has France. And yet the United States has not done anything remotely similar, with our military content to run airport security for now, as our top echelon commanders seem so risk adverse that they are fully paralyzed; they are not willing to risk American lives, our soldiers’ lives, to save thousands of other Americans lives.
Logical-minded, rational military men understand that risk comes with the job. And if they don’t, they should stay home with their CRT and transgender study groups, lounging about in their pink tu-tus and sipping their lattes.
What in the hell is the point of even having a military, if they aren’t going to defend and protect Americans abroad as well as at home? Oh .. but wait … our military is now more focused on fighting against Conservatives and Christians in America than it is in fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
Since August 18th and reiterated in his press conference today, August 20th, Biden has kept assuring everyone that he is committed to keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan until every American is evacuated, even if it means staying past August 31st, but the chaos and lack of any pre-existing contingency plans in light of how this has unfolded doesn’t instill confidence in anyone watching, and neither does the [JOS] Biden regime’s demand of two thousand dollars reimbursement from evacuees.
Asserted recently on Fox and Friends (August 17th), former Assistant Secretary of State Robert Charles [JOS]stated:
“I am told the F-77 (U.S. State Department document) of Afghanistan indicates there are 15,000 potentially, upwards of 40,000 Americans scattered around Afghanistan right now. The Taliban has given a two week grace period for them to get out but most of them have been told to shelter in place by the State Department.”
Aug. 17, 2021 – 8:15 – Robert Charles, former assistant secretary of state for President George W. Bush, on the president’s press conference following the Taliban takeover.]
On Wednesday August 18th, the U.S. State Department issued a Security Alert that in part stated the [JOS] following:
“U.S. government-provided flights are departing. U.S. citizens, LPRs, and their spouses and unmarried children (under age 21) should consider travelling to Hamid Karzai International Airport. You should plan to enter the airport at Camp Sullivan. From the HKIA Airport South Traffic Circle, head east for 1km and turn right on to Camp Sullivan. Please note that gates may change frequently and that we will provide updates as necessary.
THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CANNOT ENSURE SAFE PASSAGE TO THE HAMID KARZAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.” [Bold & Italic text from website quoted]
Anybody with a television set has seen how hard it is to even get to the airport, much less enter it, now that the Taliban and Al Qaeda have placed their own people all around its perimeter, and they are harassing and preventing nearly everybody from entering at this very moment. Al Qaeda has been spreading across at least fifteen provinces since last month according to U.S. State Department documents, and this makes it especially dangerous for any U.S. citizen to attempt to navigate their way to any point of extrication from the country, since numerous Taliban and Al Qaeda checkpoints have sprung up along every major highway across the country.
And still Biden, an existential threat to America all by himself, had the hubris to appear on national television on August 20th and tell the nation that Al Qaeda had been destroyed in Afghanistan.
Despite any assurances from the Taliban leaders and Joe Biden’s assurances his people are in constant contact with them and safe passage is guaranteed, the evidence on the ground reveals the exact opposite at this time.
Reported just earlier today by Politico, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin acknowledged in a telephone conference that Americans were being [JOS] harmed:
“We’re also aware that some people, including Americans, have been harassed and even beaten by the Taliban. This is unacceptable and (we) made it clear to the designated Taliban leader.”
As of this writing, there aren’t any reports of U.S. citizens being killed by the Taliban or Al Qaeda, but it’s early yet in this evacuation process. In the meantime, there are an untold number of Afghans that are seen scattered along the roadsides in numerous reports, raped, tortured and murdered. The Taliban hasn’t changed at all.
How does one get to Kabul airport safely without military aid? Essentially as best they can and on a wing and a prayer, one may suppose. Asking a U.S. citizen to attempt to gain entrance on their own is pure gross incompetence and malfeasance on the part of the Biden regime, when the Taliban is firing rifles into the air and into crowds of people, too, and it is an extremely daunting thing for anyone to attempt at the moment.
This should have all Americans angry as a Momma Grizzly, especially in light of an internal memo from the U.S State Department that was warning Biden last month of just such a coming collapse, as Vivian Salama (Wall Street Journal) [JOS]reported on August 19th:
“The classified cable represents the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the Taliban’s advance was imminent, and Afghanistan’s military may be unable to stop it.[Emphasis Justin’s]
The cable, sent via the State Department’s confidential dissent channel, warned of rapid territorial gains by the Taliban and the subsequent collapse of Afghan security forces, and offered recommendations on ways to mitigate the crisis and speed up an evacuation, the two people said.”
The State Department dissent channel cable urged an accelerated timetable for the evacuation of Americans and those qualified and verified Afghan nationals, who had helped U.S. forces. It recommended starting evacuations no later than August 1rst.
Some hard questions need to be asked and answered immediately concerning Afghans being placed before Americans. Why? Why Is this being done, and who actually thought this was a good idea?
It never should have become this dire a situation, and it wouldn’t have if Biden had ordered massive airstrikes and ground attacks against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, just as soon as they started taking over any province. The environment would not be so dangerous to Americans in country now, if Biden had not evacuated nearly all the U.S. military ahead of American citizens and closed down Bagram Air Base, a working airport under U.S. control until recently.
Regardless of Biden’s timetable for leaving Afghanistan, his people should have planned to leave enough military in place to properly oversee an orderly evacuation of all Americans, without placing themselves and America in the position of actually having to negotiate with the Taliban to get our people out.
America shouldn’t be negotiating with the Taliban to get our people out. Although Biden has rushed thousands of fresh troops to Afghanistan to improve the security situation, Biden must reinsert enough military to create safe corridors across the country to allow Americans to travel safely to Kabul or any new points of evacuation that may be created in the coming days, regardless of what the Taliban wants, but he has been so clueless and disengaged from the beginning that it’s hard to know what he or his people will actually do. They seem to be crossing their fingers and hoping for the best, as they keep America on a path towards certain catastrophe, and desperate Afghan mothers are tossing their children over walls to our soldiers.
And if we can see the potential for these thousands of Americans to be held hostage, one can bet their last bottom dollar that the potential hasn’t been lost to the Taliban leaders.
Horrible as it may be to have to consider, America shouldn’t be surprised when the fight gets too tough for Biden and his risk adverse Military Brass and they move to simply get out of Afghanistan whether every U.S. citizen has been evacuated or not, since Biden’s current policy is Obama 3.0, full of excuses and blame for everybody else — FAILURE — and appeasement and kissing the ass of America’s enemies. It’s a scenario that has crossed the minds of many Americans, in light of recent events and comments.
Americans certainly wouldn’t have heard George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or General George Patton, General Eisenhower, General Schwarzkopf, General McArthur, President Truman or any other American military or civilian leader worth their salt suggesting that America didn’t have the capability to do something, to get the job done come hell or high water, even though the mission may have seemed near impossible at the time. They reasoned, arrived at solutions, persevered and overcame all obstacles thrown in their way.
Americans from all walks of life, especially those in power in the federal government and Congress, must hold the Biden regime’s and the U.S. Military’s feet to the fire to get our people out, down to the very last man and woman and child, and shout to the heavens that we will not accept the current defeatism emanating from the Biden regime and its military commanders. No matter how hard the mission may seem or how far our forces are stretched, our country must hold firm to its ethos that holds the idea of leaving no man behind, not to even think of the possibility of leaving anyone so long as one has the weapons and knowledge to prevent it, with the very lives of thousands of Americans at stake and those spoken and unspoken promises from our nation to protect them.
Biden must be pressured by the American people, the House of Representatives, the Senate and whichever media outlets are so disposed to move Heaven and Earth to bring our fellow American countrymen back home. And if so much as a hair on their head is harmed, America should paint the streets red with Taliban and Al Qaeda blood as we exit wreaking vengeance with such explosive force the sound message is heard around the world.

Frankly, I am unsure that Ernest Huber (USA.life friend) is his actual name. Ernest maintains a U.S. Intel background which would be surprising if he used his actual name rather than a pseudonym. Either way, this is an AWESOME post by a fellow who trained U.S. military personnel to resist Communist tortuous interrogation if ever captured. Since Communism seems to be sweeping America with seemingly little resistance from apparently brainwashed Americans, this essay IS WELL WORTH THE READ!
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
About fifty years ago I was a young Air Force enlisted Intelligence Operations Specialist assigned as a resistance training instructor at the Air Force Survival School at Fairchild AFB. I taught aircrew members, special operations personnel, and other government employees how to resist enemy interrogation and political indoctrination if they were captured. I thoroughly studied communist doctrine, classified materials, prior POW experiences, and the dossiers of Russian, Chinese, North Korean, and North Vietnamese interrogators and political officers. I became a prodigy bad guy so I could teach and inoculate the good guys.
Sadly, I later saw some of my former students being dragged through the streets of Hanoi on their way to years of imprisonment, torture, and worse, in North Vietnam, China, and the Soviet Union. The POW/MIA flags have special meaning for me. One of the first corporations I started was to help the families of POWs and MIAs.
I excelled as an instructor and took hundreds of men to and from their breaking points in interrogations, making them stronger and better warriors under the Code of Conduct. I also became expert at portraying a communist political indoctrination officer for thousands of students in our mockup enemy POW camp. Most of the students, and some CIA visitors, had never been exposed up close and personal to the enemy brainwashing, thought reform, and self-criticism techniques, and were stunned by them. Those techniques are now being used to destroy our critical thinking, military, and nation.
On May 14, Lt Col Matthew Lohmeier of the U.S. Space Force was relieved of his command for opposing the Communist indoctrination of OUR military. On May 4, the U.S. Army used a lesbian wedding as part of a recruitment video. The CIA has been running similar woke (enemy) recruiting propaganda ads for years, and its former Director Brennan supported the communist Gus Hall for President. It is axiomatic that the weaker a nation becomes, the more vulnerable it is to attack. So why should our military fight their brother communist gangsters? Oh yes, please ignore that China’s communist gangsters have ordered a 25% INCREASE in their population, that you never see any white, black, or brown faces in any photos of Chinese society, and that you would only see Chinese faces if they conquered the United States.
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be even a worse fate, you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” –Sir Winston Churchill
The Pharisee communist Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) lived in New York City before he slithered into Russia to run the Red Army, enabled by political officers, that slaughtered millions of Russians. The opposing White Army lost. I’m sure Lt Col Lohmeier shares my view that we’re seeing Red Army 2.0 being attempted here. Those responsible must be quickly stopped by any and all means necessary.
Some insights: evil people, mass destruction, and genocide result when good men and women do nothing to stop it; wokeness, cancel culture, COVID-19 medical malpractitioners, etc., are part of the archetype/total war against our Constitutional Republic, Western civilization, and Christendom; soy boys, leftists, or LGBTQueers cannot be relied on as military members, public servants, or elected officials; and, proactive self-defense is a free people’s absolute right and duty under Natural Law.
“The history of failure in war, or in any other human endeavor, can almost be summed up in two words: Too late. Too late in comprehending the deadly purpose of a potential enemy. Too late in realizing the mortal danger. Too late in preparedness. Too late in uniting all possible forces for resistance.” General Douglas MacArthur
Prepping is fine, but We the People will only win on offense.
Ernest Huber is a retired Naval officer. He graduated from Gonzaga University and Gonzaga Law School, and was an Army military intelligence officer, counter-terrorism watch commander, GOP area chair, and Congressional candidate. He also hates God’s enemies with a perfect hatred, per Psalm 139:21-22.
We should have left Afghanistan to its own Islamic self-destructive devices long ago. Islam demands complete devotion to a supremacist theopolitical ideology that specifically denigrates Jesus as the Resurrected Son of God and encodes Jew-hatred in ALL its revered writings. I suspect Beijing Biden’s dementia will not recall on how his coup-Administration has ordered a debacle of a withdrawal rather than an orderly withdrawal that gives a Terminator, “I’ll be back!” warning. At any rate, here’s a Justin Smith analysis on the idiocy of how Biden leaves Afghanistan.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Rome burned and Nero fiddled. Kabul falls and Joe Biden is out to lunch and having big fun at Camp David watching it unfold on television screens, while vacationing, and not once has he seen fit to address the American public on the [JOS] most incredible and massive policy failure in U.S. history, that surpasses Carter’s failed attempt to rescue the Embassy hostages from the Iranian Guard in 1979 and Obama’s assertion that ISIS was “the JV League” of Islamists, bringing back shades of Benghazi and the destruction of Libya in its wake, especially in light of the known escalations and increasing power of the Taliban that preceded this lightning quick conquest of the country’s provinces and major cities.
Imagine the shock felt by thousands of U.S. Armed Forces Veterans as they heard the breaking news that came across the airwaves around 12:26 PM on Sunday August 15th 2021 that the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan was being evacuated — as smoke rose from the burning top secret files — and [JOS] the U.S. flag had been lowered and removed, while panicked Embassy personnel were being flown to the nearby Hamid Karzai International Airport, now closed to all commercial flights, as the situation worsens by the second. Veterans who occupied most of the land now occupied by the Taliban are extremely troubled to see the country fall apart as the U.S. withdraws, since it evokes complicated, mind-numbing thoughts and feelings on just what did they and so many others sacrifice so much for in this war, drawing stark comparisons between Saigon in 1975 and Kabul today.
“In contrast to the numerous Trump policies he reversed, he opted to carry out Mr. Trump’s deal with the Taliban instead of trying to renegotiate it. In so doing, he overruled his top military commanders:
Gen. Frank McKenzie, the commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East; Gen. Austin Scott Miller, who led NATO forces in Afghanistan; and Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Citing the risks of removing American forces to Afghan security and the U.S. Embassy, they recommend that the U.S. keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan while stepping up diplomacy to try to cement a peace agreement.”
President Trump wanted to remove our troops by May, much sooner than Biden, but with supposed safeguards for the Afghan people previously agreed to by the Taliban. Trump’s naivety in this regard would have fared no better, since the Taliban never intended on honoring the agreement from the beginning; they used the new found relief from the Trump agreement to strengthen their position in preparation for just this moment. Biden’s weakness and inability to alter course on this matter and break with Trump’s withdrawal plan speaks to his own hypocrisy.
Biden does make a bit of sense as he suggested that added time was just more waste of American lives and resources – if the Afghan military still couldn’t or wouldn’t defend its own country after twenty years of U.S. training and being armed with the latest weapons. However, while nobody wants America to stay in Afghanistan forever, Biden’s logic ends there, since it is nothing but incompetence and sheer idiocy that would have any force announce their departure far in advance and then proceed to withdraw during the height of the enemies fighting season and at a time they have reinforced their own ranks and armaments.
Even more troubling, relief and final evacuation for U.S. Citizens is being directed along some of the most ineffective paths imaginable, as the Biden administration has thrown unnecessary obstacles and delays in the way of Americans seeking to leave the country swiftly. Incredibly, the security alert from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul directed Americans to shelter in place and register through a repatriation form if they wanted assistance to leave Afghanistan, as if they don’t already know who in the hell is working there for U.S. contractors and NGOs. They also cautioned against trying to make one’s way to Hamid Karzai International Airport. And taken together on the whole, this sounds more like a certain death sentence than any sort of rational plan that will get our people out of there, with more shades of Benghazi and what America witnessed at the Mission and the CIA Annex on September 11th 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
With Biden’s people running this Clusterf**k no one should place too much confidence in being rescued soon, and they shouldn’t just sit there waiting to be taken by the Taliban or recently freed Al Qaeda prisoners. Everybody should be heading for a known point of evacuation, no matter what, rather than waiting in a room somewhere in hopes that help arrives, and one can only imagine that those stuck in this jam are already thinking the same thing, as events on the ground continue to take a turn for the worse.
Shelter in place? That sounds exactly like “Fend for Yourself” to me. No, people with any sense will be getting the hell out of there as quick as they can, by any means they can find.
And in story after story, the Afghan people themselves are stunned by the speed at which the Taliban was able to sweep across Afghanistan taking 21 provinces and 24 capitols within a matter of days, but one young woman told Al Jazeera News this occurred largely due to a lack of any resistance from the government forces. She is [JOS] quoted in Economic Times echoing the sentiment of her countrymen:
“They literally sold us out. There was no government resistance. I never imagined that Kandahar would be taken so easily.”
Never a fan of staying in Afghanistan after we killed Bin Laden in 2011 on the never-ending somewhat opaque and ambiguous mission of exporting Western style “democracy” and nation building in traditionally Islamic nations that neither respected or desired such from us, and short of a clearly stated mission statement or real purpose serving a truly vital U.S. interest, I had stated for many long years that we should extricate ourselves from the situation, just as quickly as possible, without abandoning the Afghans who helped us, before they had time to properly prepare for our departure. But without a mission of purpose and no recent leaders trustworthy enough and worth following to one’s death in “the service of America”, I wanted to see us leave Afghanistan, before we saw one more poor unfortunate young woman or man sent home maimed and minus one or more limbs or in a body-bag.
Most Americans have long lost the will to fight any longer in Afghanistan, after nearly twenty years of war, tens of thousands injured and maimed, and 2,312 Americans who died fighting it. They now see it as a “forever war”, and they know not what it is they do not know, about the Big Picture that the U.S. Department of Defense and the Pentagon has always seen and the long term plan since 1973, to eventually have a forward position established in Afghanistan to somewhat leverage and constrain both China and Russia from the vantage point of their vulnerable southern border.
America lost sight of this mission and purpose and got placed behind the 8 Ball by subsequent Marxist administrations, during the Obama years when the so-called “rules of engagement” were untenable and a damned deadly joke for our members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and we hurt ourselves by focusing on nation building and winning the hearts and minds of an Islamic tribal people who were never going to love us, rather than fighting to win.
No, America shouldn’t be fighting “forever wars”, but Afghanistan would never have become one, if our country’s leaders had entered it with the same attitude that witnessed America nuke Nagasaki and Hiroshima and fire-bomb Dresden. Our soldiers could have and should have made quick work of the Taliban, even if it meant killing them down to the last man, and in turn, maybe someone would have soon had the epiphany that we had just created a breast-work barrier of sorts in the region that would keep China’s eastern border and Russia’s southern border exposed and vulnerable to any defensive measure America might need utilize in the future — something we will be soon wishing we had in light of China’s current saber-rattling against America and its continued aggressions and belligerence in all parts of the world.
There has been little to zero discussion of the strategic importance of our bases in Afghanistan, although even many enlisted cadre full well get it. Russia is north — approximately four hours away by jet, China lies to the east, Pakistan to the South and Iran to the West. Without any presence there, U.S. interests in Central Asia are pretty well strangled, and Biden’s regime will soon miss the added leverage this provided our country with our enemies.
But, this was never the stated mission, and now it is all but a mute topic and something that will be thrown in the ashcan by this feckless, dangerously incompetent regime and Joe Biden, who has yet to be right on anything that pertains to U.S. foreign policy.
And so it is only natural that everybody is asking “What was it all for”, as we see Biden’s do-nothing, know-nothing appeasement policy and his grandstanding gesture aimed at officially being done in Afghanistan, on the anniversary of the worst attack on America in U.S. history on September 11th 2001, turning into a massive failure of epic proportions.
As reported by Kipp Jones on August 14th, Jeong Jangsoo, a retired Colonel of the South Korean Army and a Veteran of the Coalition Force in Afghanistan, who commanded 300 soldiers in 2007 in the fight against the Taliban, expressed his thoughts in telling fashion, [JOS] stating:
“I felt disappointment … a sense that all had been in vain, and thought, ‘So this is how it ends, huh’“.
And in the meantime, as I saw images across the media outlets revealing numerous Muslim groups celebrating this turn of events, such as the leaders of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam Nazryate distribute candy and cakes among the people in the markets of Quetta, Pakistan, as the Taliban rolled into Kabul, I wondered how many days would pass before cooperation between the Taliban, several thousand recently released Al Qaeda terrorists and the terrorists of Pakistan’s Jaamat e-Islami and other Islamic terrorist groups results in renewed and exponentially increased terrorist attacks against the Western world and across the globe, especially here on U.S. soil and against U.S. interests abroad.
Jamiat Ulema-e Islam Nazryate party distribute sweets among people (Photo from USA Today photo-collage of Afghan-Taliban)
For many Americans there was never any doubt that we must leave Afghanistan at some point, but they did want the departure to be orderly and honorable, and something far different from what we are receiving under the Biden regime and from the man, Joe Biden, who has been wrong on every major policy issue of the day over his forty some odd years career in politics, from the Persian Gulf War to the surge in Iraq and on to opposing the raid that killed Bin Laden.
This morning America witnessed one military helicopter after another leaving the Embassy compound, which makes it impossible not to draw comparisons with the iconic scene of people fleeing the North Vietnamese Army from the top of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, Vietnam in 1975. Although it was only a month ago that Biden denied this sort of scenario and a Taliban takeover was possible, anyone paying attention knew he was wrong, and now we see Biden’s administration rush thousands of U.S. Marines and U.S. Soldiers to Afghanistan to try to stave off the inevitable, as translators and other Afghan allies and civilians wait for flights that may never arrive for them.
The last days of Kabul are going to be every bit as ugly and chaotic as the last days of Saigon, because too many of the thousands of newly freed Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters and terrorists are on the prowl, vicious as ever, and seeking revenge. And as the hour grows late for Afghanistan, all doubt has been removed that this recent Afghan fiasco is Biden’s Taliban Baby and Kabul is most definitely his administration’s fall of Saigon.
As I write this, I’m thinking of a conversation I had with a dear friend this very morning, who asked that we pray for the safety of all these fine young American men and women, as she told me her nephew had just flown a mission to Afghanistan in a USAF-KC-10 a few days ago. He was just sent back to Afghanistan, flying out with jets on Saturday morning, in what was described as a “sudden” and “immediate” event.
This is where the hearts and minds of the good and decent Americans lie today, with America’s warriors who served Her in unquestioning fashion and all too often gave their lives in the process, to ensure another attack like September 11th 2001 would never be possible again from a force similar to Al Qaeda that was given sanctuary by their Taliban allies and hosts in Afghanistan. And in praying for all our dead and their families and all the soldiers still serving in Afghanistan, we also pray for the Afghan people who opposed the monsters of their own country, those Afghans siding with America and the millions of Afghan women and men who sought a future for their families without oppression.

From the time President Trump was elected in 2016 and it became obvious the FBI had become weaponized bring down that lawful election, I hear Conservative pundits (Pundits I like and still track mind you) stipulate the FBI leadership was corrupt but the FBI rank-and-file for the most part clean supporters of the rule of law.
Frankly, I trusted the Just rank-and-file characterization for a long time. Toward the end of Trump’s First Term of Office ended by a criminal Election Coup, I abandoned that rank-and-file trust. If there are Constitutional rule of law-minded FBI Agents, THEY ARE THE MINORITY not the norm.
Clearly the FBI, all Federal alphabet law enforcement agencies, DOJ bureaucrats and I speculate a majority of the Judicial Branch looked the other way when election crimes were committed to remove President Trump from Office. AND under the fraudulently elected Administration of dementia-infested Beijing Biden, crimes against Conservatives more than likely will increase. WHY?
The obvious reason is the ONLY way Dem-Marxists can maintain power is to vilify Americans who stand by our Founding Documents and traditions of American Liberty as criminals. Obama’s “Fundamental Transformation of America” can ONLY be completed if true lovers of America are branded as criminals, prosecuted, probably incarcerated or politically banned from elected Offices with framed felonies attached to their names.
The criminalization is ongoing as I type these thoughts!
Here’s a mere snapshot.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Do you remember how conservatives went out of their way to separate rank-and-file FBI agents from the corrupt actions of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bill Priestap, James Baker, James Rybicki, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and others as more evidence came to light revealing that the top brass at the bureau had worked to create an “insurance policy” that could be used to overthrow President Trump from office? Writers and television pundits would always couch any criticism of the bureau in some respectful language like “we’re only talking about high-ranking officials here, not the FBI, itself, which is filled with the best agents in the world who are always looking out for America.”
I think we can dispense with the overly protective pleasantries at this point. The FBI is a goon squad of un-American thugs who have taken the worst elements of East Germany’s Stasi police state and Cosa Nostra‘s organized crime and turned them into a blueprint for exercising and keeping illegitimate power over their enemies. They aren’t a law enforcement organization, and they certainly don’t give a rat’s rear end about justice. They’re regime enforcers with badges.
If the stated reason for the FBI’s inception was to pursue federal crimes that might otherwise be unenforced or overlooked in the interstate wilderness separating local jurisdictions, J. Edgar Hoover wasted no time turning the bureau into a personal domestic intelligence force capable of intimidating political enemies and insulating himself from potential removal through the use of blackmail. Before Jim Comey was secretly leaking to the press and using Hillary Clinton’s “Russia collusion” dossier in an operation to take down President Trump, Mark Felt, the FBI’s second-in-command at the time of the Watergate scandal and the anonymous “Deep Throat” who made Woodward and Bernstein famous, actually succeeded in secretly bringing down President Nixon. In this way, the FBI has at least as much experience overthrowing American governments as it does any enemy state.
You’d think it was sufficiently clear, as evidence mounted over the last five years, that Comey and Co. had undertaken a mission (with John Brennan at CIA, Bruce Ohr at Main Justice, Nellie Ohr and Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, James Clapper, and Christopher Steele, the Russia hoax dossier author and former Russia desk head at Britain’s MI6) to frame the sitting president of the United States as a Russian asset by repeatedly filing fraudulent FISA affidavits with America’s secret surveillance court, among other unprosecuted crimes, to spy on Donald Trump and his associates. But there were also the efforts of Rod Rosenstein, Andrew Weissmann, Robert Mueller, and their army of fifty FBI agents who spent two years trying to entrap President Trump on phony “obstruction of justice” charges during a bogus special counsel witch hunt.
Just as the FBI has subverted justice in order to “get Trump,” it has gone out of its way to provide the Democratic Party and all its “intersectional” tribes general immunity. After disgraced FBI director James Comey laid out the elements for a prosecutable case against Hillary Clinton in 2016 for storing top-secret material on a bathroom server easily accessible to China and Russia, he immediately dismissed the idea of criminal charges, insisting that no “reasonable prosecutor” could obtain a conviction — an admission that either federal prosecutors or federal juries are incapable of punishing Democrats. When the Russia hoax was finally revealed as an Intelligence Community operation run out of the Obama White House to spy on the Trump campaign and implode his presidency, nobody in charge was ever held accountable. And Black Lives Matter and Antifa have, more or less, run roughshod over America with the FBI’s blessing and backing — leaving no doubt that the U.S. has an intentionally rigged two-tiered justice system that protects Democrats at all costs while persecuting Republicans without remorse.
However, if a century’s worth of nostalgic television and film propaganda portraying the bureau as a collection of “white hats” committed to doing good lulled anyone into still believing that the FBI is anything other than irredeemably corrupt and malevolent — from Director Wray down to the lowliest parking attendant — then an exposé in Revolver News detailing the FBI’s probable infiltration of the January 6 voting rights protest and political rally in D.C. and the likelihood that undercover agents instigated and actively participated in the events at the Capitol that day should put the matter to bed once and for all.
Revolver went through the available indictments filed against Americans for breaching the Capitol and noted numerous “unindicted co-conspirators … all playing various roles in the conspiracy” who have been neither named nor charged. What Revolver tees up with its reporting, Tucker Carlson smashes onto the green with his blunt conclusion: “It means that in potentially every single case, they were FBI operatives[.] … So FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to government documents.” [Bold Text JRH Blog Editor]
Armchair sleuths have been analyzing available footage of that day for months, and many have provided convincing evidence that members of Antifa and Black Lives Matterhad not only covertly infiltrated the pro-Trump rally crowd but were actively breaking glass doors and pushing into the Capitol Complex. [Blog Editor Bold Text] There’s even video of a small cell of initial trespassers dressed all in black from head to toe operating in an organized fashion as they entered the premises that has gone viral as purported evidence that the mayhem on January 6 was due, at least partially, to the actions of a classic false flag operation meant to undermine Trump-supporters.
What Revolver’s analysis of the DOJ’s charging documents shows, though, is that not just BLM and Antifa, but also FBI undercover agents were almost certainly up to no good that day. [Blog Editor bold Text] That’s a lot of outside interlopers pretending to be Trump rally-goers for the FBI to insist that the same MAGA crowd that has never once engaged in violence or property damage over the course of hundreds of similar events during the last five years — dressed in patriotic garb and draped in American flags — spontaneously turned a festive, carnival-like party into a “siege” and “rebellion” against the United States. And it’s especially suspicious when video footage shows cops waving protesters into the Capitol Building and when the only person killed that day was an unarmed Air Force veteran at the hands of a yet-unidentified Capitol police officer.
Democrats, the U.S. military, the Department of “Justice,” Liz Cheney [TRAITOR ALERT], and the official state-controlled press have steamrolled the country with endless smears and hyperbolic claims against Trump voters, painting them as murderers and traitors and framing the Capitol incursion as a historical event of carnage and nefarious intent equal to America’s darkest days — the Civil War, 9/11, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Yet the FBI was on the ground stirring things up the whole time. [Blog Editor Bold Text]
Attorney General Merrick Garland pushed this false claim further by standing before the nation and declaring that the nation’s greatest threat comes from Americans who advocate “the superiority of the white race.” As proof for this outrageous assertion, the highest law enforcement officer in the land pointed repeatedly to January 6. Clearly, the FBI and DOJ have decided that targeting President Trump for five years is no longer sufficient. All Trump voters must be destroyed now, too.
If that doesn’t tank the FBI’s reputation, then what possibly could?
HUGE! Revolver News Breaks Report on Likely Deep State Plants Inside Jan. 6 Uprising — WAS IT ALL PLANNED?
Of all the questions asked, words spoken, and ink spilled on the so-called “Capitol Siege” of January 6, 2021, none hold the key to the entire event quite like what Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked of Christopher Wray.
The Democrat from Minnesota asked the Trump-appointed FBI Director: Did the federal government infiltrate any of the so-called “militia” organizations claimed to be responsible for planning and executing the Capitol Siege?…
…We at Revolver News have noticed a pattern from our now months-long investigation into 1/6 — and in particular from our meticulous study of the charging documents related to those indicted. In many cases the unindicted co-conspirators appear to be much more aggressive and egregious participants in the very so-called “conspiracy” serving as the basis for charging those indicted.
The question immediately arises as to why this is the case, and forces us to consider whether certain individuals are being protected from indictment because they were involved in 1/6 as undercover operatives or confidential informants for a federal agency.
Here it is useful to draw a distinction between two discrete categories of participants in the so-called Capitol Siege.
The first category is the group of mostly harmless tourists who walked through already opened doors and already-removed barricades, and at most were guilty of minor trespassing charges and light property offenses. The second group consists of those who were violent with police officers, broke down barricades, smashed windows, belonged to a “militia” group engaged in military-style planning prior to the event, discussed transporting heavy weaponry, and so forth.
Up until now, the overwhelming (perhaps exclusive) share of counter-establishment reporting on 1/6 has focused on absolving the first group. And this is a valuable thing. The notion that these harmless “MAGA moms” wandering around the Capitol were domestic terrorists engaged in an insurrection is absurd. That many of these people are being held in prison, without bail, under harsh conditions, amounts to an unacceptable and outrageous abuse of basic human rights.
However, the possibility that the federal government had undercover operatives or informants involved in the events of 1/6, from its planning to its execution, compels us to turn our attention to the second category of participants.
Revolver News then goes into detail on how the move violent plotters in the Gretchen Whitmer “kidnapping” plot (5 of 13) were government informants.
Then Revolver News shows the parallels between the Whitmer “kidnappers” and the Jan. 6 Oath Keepers who were behind the planning of the operations that day and who, like the plotters in Michigan, paid for the hotel rooms and bus rental to the US Capitol on Jan. 6.
Several apparent government informants were NOT CHARGED on Jan. 6 protests.
Isn’t that interesting?
Someone needs to ask liar Chris Wray how many of the US Capitol protesters were paid informants for the FBI.

Blog Editor: Jim Hoft made a 2nd June 15 post about FBI Jan 6 infiltration and incitement. This post repeats much of the above info relating to the Revolver story. But towards the end focuses on the FBI recruiting a former Green Beret to infiltrate MAGA Trumpers on Jan 6. That Green Beret is Jeremy Brown. I’m going to cross post TGP Brown back story and of the Banned Video interview conducted with Brown that includes audio of the FBI recruitment efforts.
Jeremy Brown is a Green Beret and former Republican candidate for Congress in Florida’s 14th Congressional District. Brown served in the United States Army from 1992 to 2012 and reached the rank of Special Forces Master Sergeant.
Jeremy also attended the Stop the Steal protests in Washington DC on January 6. Jeremy joined the Oath Keepers in November and went to Washington DC to provide security at the many protests and rallies that week.
Last March, Jeremy Brown started speaking out about how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) contacted him and attempted to recruit him to spy on patriots and everyday Americans.
In December FBI agents contacted Jeremy Brown at his home for “posting some things online.”
Jeremy released video surveillance of the FBI contacting him at his home. And Jeremy released an audio recording of his actual meetup with the FBI. Jeremy struggled for months about whether or not to go public with this information. But according to his Facebook page — “After listening to politicians and the FBI Director, Chris Wray, tell lie after bald-faced lie to the American People, he could not stay silent any longer.”
Jeremy decided his desire to protect and defend the American people and the TRUTH are more important than privacy or personal safety.
Earlier this year Jeremy joined Brandon Gray on Banned.TV to describe what happened to him after he joined the Oath Keepers in November.
Jeremy released a video of his encounter with government officials when they came to his home. Jeremy also released audio of his meeting with the FBI at a local restaurant.
Jeremy explains in his recent video that the FBI called his cellphone and asked for a meeting after trying to contact him at his house. Jeremy then met with the FBI agents at a restaurant in Ybor City in December. He told Brandon Gray that 38 seconds into the interview the FBI attempted to recruit him to spy on the Oath Keepers.
WATCH as we learn how occupied government agencies (like the Federal Bureau of INTIMIDATION) manipulate patriots into infiltrating the very groups meant to protect America. Former special forces operator Jeremy Brown breaks down what they’re doing…and what We The People can do about it. SHARE this critical intel.
National security apparatus in total panic over election audit results, rising backlash against tyranny and corruption
(Natural News) The national security “deep state” is in an outright panic right now, desperately hoping to criminalize political opponents of the Biden regime before the results of the Arizona / Maricopa County ballot audit are revealed. The hand counting portion of the audit is now complete, and final results are expected in as little as ten days (around June 26th).
Corrupt national security operators know that once the audit results are made public, America will see that around 200,000 ballots are either fraudulent or missing, and Arizona will move to decertify its electoral college votes, thrusting the entire Biden “victory” into question. With audit efforts spreading to other states, it won’t be long before enough states decertify the electoral votes to push Biden below the electoral victory threshold of 270, effectively nullifying the Biden “presidency.”
In order to stop that from happening, it appears the corrupt DOJ and FBI are plotting the largest false flag event in American history as a way to terrorize the nation into obedience while distracting from election audit results. In the same way that the Jan. 6th capitol siege — which was clearly run by the FBI — instantly shut down all talk of US Senators even considering alternate electoral college votes submitted by many red states, the deep state knows that rolling out a massive false flag attack as the Arizona election results are released will drastically shift the narrative and focus the American people on media-induced hatred aimed at conservatives and gun owners.
This is why we expect to see the deep state attempt to pull off a large-scale mass shooting or bombing event of some kind, either in June or July, followed by media hysteria and a demand for nationwide gun confiscation and national security investigations into Trump supporters. In order for the Marxists to hold power, they must create a new crisis and use it to strip away any remaining constitutional protections from the American people.
They’ve already destroyed free speech and free elections; now they must destroy the freedom to bear arms and the freedom to express dissent via the First Amendment.
As Darren Beattie of Revolver.news now asks, “Does the national security apparatus do anything but conspire against the American people?”
Hear the full update here, also covering insane news headlines, political news, vaccines and more:
Far from being a war against “white supremacy,” the Biden administration’s new “domestic terror” strategy clearly targets primarily those who oppose US government overreach and those who oppose capitalism and/or globalization.
In the latest sign that the US government’s War on Domestic Terror is growing in scope and scale, the White House on Tuesday revealed the nation’s first ever government-wide strategy for confronting domestic terrorism. While cloaked in language about stemming racially motivated violence, the strategy places those deemed “anti-government” or “anti-authority” on a par with racist extremists and charts out policies that could easily be abused to silence or even criminalize online criticism of the government.
Even more disturbing is the call to essentially fuse intelligence agencies, law enforcement, Silicon Valley, and “community” and “faith-based” organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, as well as unspecified foreign governments, as partners in this “war,” which the strategy makes clear will rely heavily on a pre-crime orientation focused largely on what is said on social media and encrypted platforms. Though the strategy claims that the government will “shield free speech and civil liberties” in implementing this policy, its contents reveal that it is poised to gut both.
Indeed, while framed publicly as chiefly targeting “right-wing white supremacists,” the strategy itself makes it clear that the government does not plan to focus on the Right but instead will pursue “domestic terrorists” in “an ideologically neutral, threat-driven manner,” as the law “makes no distinction based on political view—left, right or center.” It also states that a key goal of this strategic framework is to ensure “that there is simply no governmental tolerance . . . of violence as an acceptable mode of seeking political or social change,” regardless of a perpetrator’s political affiliation.
Considering that the main cheerleaders for the War on Domestic Terror exist mainly in establishment left circles, such individuals should rethink their support for this new policy given that the above statements could easily come to encompass Black Lives Matter–related protests, such as those that transpired last summer, depending on which political party is in power.
Once the new infrastructure is in place, it will remain there and will be open to the same abuses perpetrated by both political parties in the US during the lengthy War on Terror following September 11, 2001. The history of this new “domestic terror” policy, including its origins in the Trump administration, makes this clear.
It’s Never Been Easier to Be a “Terrorist”
In introducing the strategy, the Biden administration cites “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists” as a key reason for the new policy and a main justification for the War on Domestic Terror in general. This was most recently demonstrated Tuesday in Attorney General Merrick Garland’s statement announcing this new strategy. However, the document itself puts “anti-government” or “anti-authority” “extremists” in the same category as violent white supremacists in terms of being a threat to the homeland. The strategy’s characterization of such individuals is unsettling.
For instance, those who “violently oppose” “all forms of capitalism” or “corporate globalization” are listed under this less-discussed category of “domestic terrorist.” This highlights how people on the left, many of whom have called for capitalism to be dismantled or replaced in the US in recent years, could easily be targeted in this new “war” that many self-proclaimed leftists are currently supporting. Similarly, “environmentally-motivated extremists,” a category in which groups such as Extinction Rebellion could easily fall, are also included.
In addition, the phrasing indicates that it could easily include as “terrorists” those who oppose the World Economic Forum’s vision for global “stakeholder capitalism,” as that form of “capitalism” involves corporations and their main “stakeholders” creating a new global economic and governance system. The WEF’s stakeholder capitalism thus involves both “capitalism” and “corporate globalization.”
The strategy also includes those who “take steps to violently resist government authority . . . based on perceived overreach.” This, of course, creates a dangerous situation in which the government could, purposely or otherwise, implement a policy that is an obvious overreach and/or blatantly unconstitutional and then label those who resist it “domestic terrorists” and deal with them as such—well before the overreach can be challenged in court.
Another telling addition to this group of potential “terrorists” is “any other individual or group who engages in violence—or incites imminent violence—in opposition to legislative, regulatory or other actions taken by the government.” Thus, if the government implements a policy that a large swath of the population finds abhorrent, such as launching a new, unpopular war abroad, those deemed to be “inciting” resistance to the action online could be considered domestic terrorists.
Such scenarios are not unrealistic, given the loose way in which the government and the media have defined things like “incitement” and even “violence” (e. g., “hate speech” is a form of violence) in the recent past. The situation is ripe for manipulation and abuse. To think the federal government (including the Biden administration and subsequent administrations) would not abuse such power reflects an ignorance of US political history, particularly when the main forces behind most terrorist incidents in the nation are actually US government institutions like the FBI (more FBI examples here, here, here, and here).
Furthermore, the original plans for the detention of American dissidents in the event of a national emergency, drawn up during the Reagan era as part of its “continuity of government” contingency, cited popular nonviolent opposition to US intervention in Latin America as a potential “emergency” that could trigger the activation of those plans. Many of those “continuity of government” protocols remain on the books today and can be triggered, depending on the whims of those in power. It is unlikely that this new domestic terror framework will be any different regarding nonviolent protest and demonstrations.
Yet another passage in this section of the strategy states that “domestic terrorists” can, “in some instances, connect and intersect with conspiracy theories and other forms of disinformation and misinformation.” It adds that the proliferation of such “dangerous” information “on Internet-based communications platforms such as social media, file-upload sites and end-to-end encrypted platforms, all of these elements can combine and amplify threats to public safety.”
Thus, the presence of “conspiracy theories” and information deemed by the government to be “misinformation” online is itself framed as threatening public safety, a claim made more than once in this policy document. Given that a major “pillar” of the strategy involves eliminating online material that promotes “domestic terrorist” ideologies, it seems inevitable that such efforts will also “connect and intersect” with the censorship of “conspiracy theories” and narratives that the establishment finds inconvenient or threatening for any reason.
Pillars of Tyranny
The strategy notes in several places that this new domestic-terror policy will involve a variety of public-private partnerships in order to “build a community to address domestic terrorism that extends not only across the Federal Government but also to critical partners.” It adds, “That includes state, local, tribal and territorial governments, as well as foreign allies and partners, civil society, the technology sector, academic, and more.”
The mention of foreign allies and partners is important as it suggests a multinational approach to what is supposedly a US “domestic” issue and is yet another step toward a transnational security-state apparatus. A similar multinational approach was used to devastating effect during the CIA-developed Operation Condor, which was used to target and “disappear” domestic dissidents in South America in the 1970s and 1980s. The foreign allies mentioned in the Biden administration’s strategy are left unspecified, but it seems likely that such allies would include the rest of the Five Eyes alliance (the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand) and Israel, all of which already have well-established information-sharing agreements with the US for signals intelligence.
The new domestic-terror strategy has four main “pillars,” which can be summarized as (1) understanding and sharing domestic terrorism-related information, including with foreign governments and private tech companies; (2) preventing domestic terrorism recruitment and mobilization to violence; (3) disrupting and deterring domestic terrorism activity; and (4) confronting long-term contributors to domestic terrorism.
The first pillar involves the mass accumulation of data through new information-sharing partnerships and the deepening of existing ones. Much of this information sharing will involve increased data mining and analysis of statements made openly on the internet, particularly on social media, something already done by US intelligence contractors such as Palantir. While the gathering of such information has been ongoing for years, this policy allows even more to be shared and legally used to make cases against individuals deemed to have made threats or expressed “dangerous” opinions online.
Included in the first pillar is the need to increase engagement with financial institutions concerning the financing of “domestic terrorists.” US banks, such as Bank of America, have already gone quite far in this regard, leading to accusations that it has begun acting like an intelligence agency. Such claims were made after it was revealed that the BofA had passed to the government the private banking information of over two hundred people that the bank deemed as pointing to involvement in the events of January 6, 2021. It seems likely, given this passage in the strategy, that such behavior by banks will soon become the norm, rather than an outlier, in the United States.
The second pillar is ostensibly focused on preventing the online recruitment of domestic terrorists and online content that leads to the “mobilization of violence.” The strategy notes that this pillar “means reducing both supply and demand of recruitment materials by limiting widespread availability online and bolstering resilience to it by those who nonetheless encounter it.“ The strategy states that such government efforts in the past have a “mixed record,” but it goes on to claim that trampling on civil liberties will be avoided because the government is “consulting extensively” with unspecified “stakeholders” nationwide.
Regarding recruitment, the strategy states that “these activities are increasingly happening on Internet-based communications platforms, including social media, online gaming platforms, file-upload sites and end-to-end encrypted platforms, even as those products and services frequently offer other important benefits.” It adds that “the widespread availability of domestic terrorist recruitment material online is a national security threat whose front lines are overwhelmingly private-sector online platforms.”
The US government plans to provide “information to assist online platforms with their own initiatives to enforce their own terms of service that prohibits the use of their platforms for domestic terrorist activities” as well as to “facilitate more robust efforts outside the government to counter terrorists’ abuse of Internet-based communications platforms.”
Given the wider definition of “domestic terrorist” that now includes those who oppose capitalism and corporate globalization as well as those who resist government overreach, online content discussing these and other “anti-government” and “anti-authority” ideas could soon be treated in the same way as online Al Qaeda or ISIS propaganda. Efforts, however, are unlikely to remain focused on these topics. As Unlimited Hangout reported last November, both UK intelligence and the US national-security state were developing plans to treat critical reporting on the COVID-19 vaccines as “extremist” propaganda.
Another key part of this pillar is the need to “increase digital literacy” among the American public, while censoring “harmful content” disseminated by “terrorists” as well as by “hostile foreign powers seeking to undermine American democracy.” The latter is a clear reference to the claim that critical reporting of US government policy, particularly its military and intelligence activities abroad, was the product of “Russian disinformation,” a now discredited claim that was used to heavily censor independent media. This new government strategy appears to promise more of this sort of thing.
It also notes that “digital literacy” education for a domestic audience is being developed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Such a policy would have previously violated US law until the Obama administration worked with Congress to repeal the Smith-Mundt Act, thus lifting the ban on the government directing propaganda at domestic audiences.
The third pillar of the strategy seeks to increase the number of federal prosecutors investigating and trying domestic-terror cases. Their numbers are likely to jump as the definition of “domestic terrorist” is expanded. It also seeks to explore whether “legislative reforms could meaningfully and materially increase our ability to protect Americans from acts of domestic terrorism while simultaneously guarding against potential abuse of overreach.” In contrast to past public statements on police reform by those in the Biden administration, the strategy calls to “empower” state and local law enforcement to tackle domestic terrorism, including with increased access to “intelligence” on citizens deemed dangerous or subversive for any number of reasons.
To that effect, the strategy states the following (p. 24):
“The Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Department of Homeland Security, with support from the National Counterterrorism Center [part of the intelligence community], are incorporating an increased focus on domestic terrorism into current intelligence products and leveraging current mechanisms of information and intelligence sharing to improve the sharing of domestic terrorism-related content and indicators with non-Federal partners. These agencies are also improving the usability of their existing information-sharing platforms, including through the development of mobile applications designed to provide a broader reach to non-Federal law enforcement partners, while simultaneously refining that support based on partner feedback.”
Such an intelligence tool could easily be, for example, Palantir, which is already used by the intelligence agencies, the DHS, and several US police departments for “predictive policing,” that is, pre-crime actions. Notably, Palantir has long included a “subversive” label for individuals included on government and law enforcement databases, a parallel with the controversial and highly secretive Main Core database of US dissidents.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made the “pre-crime” element of the new domestic terror strategy explicit on Tuesday when he said in a statement that DHS would continue “developing key partnerships with local stakeholders through the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) to identify potential threats and prevent terrorism.” CP3, which replaced DHS’ Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention this past May, officially “supports communities across the United States to prevent individuals from radicalizing to violence and intervene when individuals have already radicalized to violence.”
The fourth pillar of the strategy is by far the most opaque and cryptic, while also the most far-reaching. It aims to address the sources that cause “terrorists” to mobilize “towards violence.” This requires “tackling racism in America,” a lofty goal for an administration headed by the man who controversially eulogized Congress’ most ardent segregationist and who was a key architect of the 1994 crime bill. As well, it provides for “early intervention and appropriate care for those who pose a danger to themselves or others.”
In regard to the latter proposal, the Trump administration, in a bid to “stop mass shootings before they occur,” considered a proposal to create a “health DARPA” or “HARPA” that would monitor the online communications of everyday Americans for “neuropsychiatric” warning signs that someone might be “mobilizing towards violence.” While the Trump administration did not create HARPA or adopt this policy, the Biden administration has recently announced plans to do so.
Finally, the strategy indicates that this fourth pillar is part of a “broader priority”: “enhancing faith in government and addressing the extreme polarization, fueled by a crisis of disinformation and misinformation often channeled through social media platforms, which can tear Americans apart and lead some to violence.” In other words, fostering trust in government while simultaneously censoring “polarizing” voices who distrust or criticize the government is a key policy goal behind the Biden administration’s new domestic-terror strategy.
Calling Their Shots?
While this is a new strategy, its origins lie in the Trump administration. In October 2019, Trump’s attorney general William Barr formally announced in a memorandum that a new “national disruption and early engagement program” aimed at detecting those “mobilizing towards violence” before they commit any crime would launch in the coming months. That program, known as DEEP (Disruption and Early Engagement Program), is now active and has involved the Department of Justice, the FBI, and “private sector partners” since its creation.
Barr’s announcement of DEEP followed his unsettling “prediction” in July 2019 that “a major incident may occur at any time that will galvanize public opinion on these issues.” Not long after that speech, a spate of mass shootings occurred, including the El Paso Walmart shooting, which killed twenty-three and about which many questions remain unanswered regarding the FBI’s apparent foreknowledge of the event. After these events took place in 2019, Trump called for the creation of a government backdoor into encryption and the very pre-crime system that Barr announced shortly thereafter in October 2019. The Biden administration, in publishing this strategy, is merely finishing what Barr started.
Indeed, a “prediction” like Barr’s in 2019 was offered by the DHS’ Elizabeth Neumann during a Congressional hearing in late February 2020. That hearing was largely ignored by the media as it coincided with an international rise of concern regarding COVID-19. At the hearing, Neumann, who previously coordinated the development of the government’s post-9/11 terrorism information sharing strategies and policies and worked closely with the intelligence community, gave the following warning about an imminent “domestic terror” event in the United States:
“And every counterterrorism professional I speak to in the federal government and overseas feels like we are at the doorstep of another 9/11, maybe not something that catastrophic in terms of the visual or the numbers, but that we can see it building and we don’t quite know how to stop it.”
This “another 9/11” emerged on January 6, 2021, as the events of that day in the Capitol were quickly labeled as such by both the media and prominent politicians, while also inspiring calls from the White House and the Democrats for a “9/11-style commission” to investigate the incident. This event, of course, figures prominently in the justification for the new domestic-terror strategy, despite the considerable video and other evidence that shows that Capitol law enforcement, and potentially the FBI, were directly involved in facilitating the breach of the Capitol. In addition, when one considers that the QAnon movement, which had a clear role in the events of January 6, was itself likely a government-orchestratedpsyop, the government hand in creating this situation seems clear.
It goes without saying that the official reasons offered for these militaristic “domestic terror” policies, which the US has already implemented abroad—causing much more terror than it has prevented—does not justify the creation of a massive new national-security infrastructure that aims to criminalize and censor online speech. Yet the admission that this new strategy, as part of a broader effort to “enhance faith in government,” combines domestic propaganda campaigns with the censorship and pursuit of those who distrust government heralds the end of even the illusion of democracy in the United States.
