WSJ op-ed in May warned Joe Biden that his Afghanistan plan would lead to a terrorist takeover

President Joe Biden said today that the humiliating debacle in Afghanistan was not predicted by anyone as a way to excuse his complete and utter incompetence in organizing the military retreat.

This op-ed in the Wall Street Journal from three months ago proves that he is willfully lying or completely ignorant.

Written by William Lloyd Stearman, who served on the National Security Council under four presidents, the piece pretty much predicts what happened months later.

The location is also strategic, to say the least: Bagram is about 400 miles west of China and about 500 miles east of Iran. This is a good place to have American assets. Keeping the base open could hardly be called a provocation, given it’s been around for years. But manning this base requires a continued military presence in Afghanistan, which would also ensure the country doesn’t return to being a base for terrorists.

That is what happening now, and its happening so quickly that its embarrassing the Biden administration and more importantly, the United States.

And this is all Biden had to do:

All of this is reason to oppose removing all U.S. troops. The better course would be keeping enough troops in the country to maintain Bagram and support for Afghan troops in resisting the Taliban.

Stearman continues:

There is a good reason why the Taliban wants Americans completely out of Afghanistan. As long as the U.S. keeps troops there and supports the Afghan government, the Taliban won’t prevail, even if they take over much of the country, which would hardly be easy. American troops can provide training and air support without engaging in ground combat. Anything the Taliban agrees to for the purpose of ensuring complete withdrawal, such as breaking ties with al Qaeda in the landmark 2020 agreement, is never to be taken seriously. The Taliban knows it can never be completely successful as long as there are U.S. military personnel in the country.

He’s not the only one. Here’s a letter to Biden in June from Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee:

“I remain incredibly concerned about President Biden’s rushed and unconditional withdrawal from Afghanistan. Relinquishing Bagram Air Base is another incredibly short-sighted and reckless decision by President Biden.”

Further on:

“We have not seen any sort of a counter-terrorism plan for the region from this administration and we still have not been made aware of any agreements for intelligence gathering. The Biden administration needs to be clear with Congress, our Afghan counterparts, and the American people about what the plan is. We cannot risk a terror attack on our homeland because President Biden has decided to play politics with national security.”

There are a lot of disingenuous arguments out there from people who want to pretend that we know for certain the pullout would have been better under a second term from Donald Trump. We don’t know that. But it has been so horrifically bad under Biden, that it’s hard to imagine that Trump could have screwed it up worse than this…

Conservative Erick Erickson suspended on Twitter for tweeting a biological fact about a transgender male

Careful everyone!! We are now in the upside down world where you can’t say the biological reality about transgender people. At least not on Twitter – here’s the latest victim of totalitarian woke censorship:

Erickson is referring to Laurel Hubbard, the Olympic wrestler, who was born a man and magically transmuted himself through the power of modern medical chemicals into what many would consider a reasonable facsimile of a woman, as-far-as-society-and-twitter-goes.

BUT WE ALL KNOW WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON HERE.

Even if we can’t say it. Or risk being drummed out of the big tech speech sphere.

I do think this is a problem. I don’t think we need to burn down the entire tech world over this, nor would I go about shrieking about my constitutional right to say whatever I want on Twitter. I just don’t think that’s true, and I think some people are a little nutty about it. But, it is a problem.

Now go and woke-sin no more.

Laura Loomer’s idiotic lawsuit against CAIR backfired and now she has to pay them $124,000

If you were rooting for this idiot Laura Loomer and her stupid lawsuit against CAIR, I have bad news. The moron lost and she’s gonna have to cough up more than $124,000 for lawyer’s fees.

This all stems from accusations that Twitter cancelled Loomer’s Twitter account in 2018 because of campaigning by CAIR, a pro-Muslim group. Here’s what she claimed:

…Loomer sued the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), claiming the group violated her First Amendment rights by conspiring with the social media platform to silence her views. Loomer also alleged the group’s conduct constituted tortious interference with business relationships due to a “reasonable expectation of economic gain in the form of revenue that they would obtain from Ms. Loomer’s use of Twitter.”

Well she lost. And now she has to pay up for the ridiculous lawsuit:

In total, the court held that Loomer owed $123,761.65 to CAIR and its Florida chapter over the litigation, plus $661.72 in costs.

In no way am I defending CAIR or some of their actions, but I’m just trying to warn people not to give in to their feelings when they seek out nutcases and crackheads like Loomer. Just because you’re very passionate about a subject doesn’t mean that you should support idiots who take the most extreme positions on that subject.

This is happening all over the political sphere, and it is damaging to the conservative cause, it’s damaging to America, and it’s just not healthy for people to self-radicalize like this. Unfortunately, I doubt the $120k bill will cure Loomer of her insanity. 

I mean why quit when there’s tons of people willing to sign over their social security checks to support her lunacy.
