Why Can’t We ‘Just March Out’ Of Afghanistan?

undefined

Last week President Biden announced a “full” US withdrawal from Afghanistan – the longest war in US history – by the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States. While this announcement is to be welcomed, the delayed US withdrawal may result in Americans and Afghans dying needlessly for good PR optics back home. We all remember how many Americans died after President Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” stunt in Iraq.

Minnesota National Guard, Police Team Targeted In Drive-By Shooting Hours After Maxine Waters Incites BLM Protesters

undefined

Hours after Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged protesters to "get more confrontational," a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis police team were targeted in a Saturday morning drive-by shooting, according to a press release by the National Guard.’

The incident happened at approximately 4:19 a.m. local time when a light colored SUV drove by and unloaded. Fortunately for the officers, only minor injuries were sustained - with two National Guardsmen suffering minor cuts from shattered glass. They were taken to a local hospital. A third Guardsman had "only superficial injuries" according to the statement.

Clearly Waters needs to be impeached for incitement, since those are the rules - right?

California Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) flew to Minnesota this weekend, where she joined protesters in Brooklyn Center past curfew and urged them to 'get more confrontational' just one day after peaceful demonstrations devolved into violence.

Anthony Fauci, Enemy of Freedom

undefined

Anthony Fauci, now in his second presidential administration as chief coronavirus fearmonger and coronavirus crackdown champion, offered in a Sunday interview some explanation for his continuing promotion of draconian government restrictions and pressure for everyone to take experimental vaccines, all in the name of countering coronavirus that does not pose a significant risk of major health problems or death for most people. Freedom just seems not to make sense, suggests the United States government’s highest paid bureaucrat, while tyranny, in contrast, does.

Interviewed Sunday at CNN by Dana Bash, Fauci said the following in regard to people who oppose coronavirus restrictions and choose not to take any of the US government funded and pushed vaccines: “it just almost doesn’t make any sense” that people “on the one hand want to be relieved of the restrictions, but on the other hand they don’t want to get vaccinated.” Further, Fauci calls opposing the restrictions while choosing not to take one of the experimental coronavirus vaccines, some of which are not even vaccines under the normal meaning of the term, “always paradoxical” because vaccines are needed to bring down coronavirus case numbers “to the point where you would not have to have those public health restrictions.”

When freedom was more respected in the past and threats, including ones greater than coronavirus, came and went, such “health restrictions” as Fauci lauds were not imposed. The fact that such restrictions have existed in America over the last year-plus in the name of countering coronavirus is a sign of the abandonment of respecting freedom, with the aid of fearmongers like Fauci.

Biden’s decision not to punt on ‘Russian bounties’ is embarrassment for US media – but they’ll continue to push favored narrative

undefined

The mainstream media didn’t find it incongruous that the US walked back a claim that Russia placed bounties on US troops in Afghanistan on the same day it sanctioned Russia on the basis of another set of evidence-free accusations.

The CIA now only has “low-to-moderate confidence” that Russia paid the Taliban to kill American servicemen in Afghanistan, it was reported on Thursday. 

On the same day, the Biden administration announced a new raft of sanctions against Russia as punishment for its “efforts to undermine the conduct of free and fair democratic elections and democratic institutions in the United States and its allies and partners; [and to] engage in and facilitate malicious cyber activities against the United States and its allies and partners.” Russia was said to have interfered in the 2020 US election and to be behind the so-called SolarWinds hack.

The Biden administration – targeting Russia’s sovereign debt – barred American financial institutions from buying rouble bonds issued after June 14 by any Russian federal financial authority. The US government “designated” six Russian technology companies that allegedly “provide support to the Russian Intelligence Services’ cyber program.” It also sanctioned 32 entities and individuals supposedly “carrying out Russian government-directed attempts to influence the 2020 US presidential election, and other acts of disinformation and interference.” In addition, the government sanctioned eight individuals and entities “associated with Russia’s ongoing occupation and repression in Crimea.” Finally, Washington announced the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats who were allegedly spies.

Anthony Fauci and his faux science sow more seeds of fear

undefined

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s go-to for all things coronavirus, said on Sunday on national news that even those who’ve been vaccinated should not gather indoors, or eat indoors, or remove their masks — or basically, in essence, do anything that involves being and breathing around others.

This guy will have Americans walking on pins and needles, living in fear, forever — if we let him.

His so-called supporting science is about as solid as tossing a coin. Heads, stay at home; tails, don’t go outside. Heads, wear a face mask; tails, wear two face masks.

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan asked him, “What is the message to vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans as to what they should and should not be doing right now? For example, eating and drinking indoors in restaurants and bars — is that OK now?”

And Fauci’s answer?

Nope.

“It’s still not OK for the simple reason that the level of infection, the dynamics of infection in the community, are still really disturbingly high,” said, Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Like just yesterday there were close to 80,000 new infections, and we’ve been hanging around 60,000, 70,000, 75,000.”

Biden Declares 'National Emergency' - Blindsides Russia With Sanctions, Economic Warfare

Just two days after speaking with Russian President Putin by phone, and suggesting a summit, President Biden has hit Russia with another round of sanctions - including an attack on the Russian currency. The reasons given for this "national emergency" include the seven year old return of Crimea to Russian control and the still-unproven allegations of Russian election meddling, hacking, and placing bounties on US soldiers' heads in Afghanistan. Today on the Liberty Report...

The Raw Milk Raw Deal

undefined

Obsessive Covid cleaning
 is just the most recent and most palpable government regulation to serve no discernible health and safety policy goal. Many rules ostensibly made to “protect” you and yours really serve to protect incumbents from new entry by artificially increasing new entry costs. Others are paternalistic efforts designed to save you from yourself, including your natural cravings for wholesome natural foods.

One particularly stunning example of the latter is the US Food and Drug Administration’s ban on the interstate sale of raw, which is to say unpasteurized, milk. According to the FDA, the ban is necessary because “raw milk can contain a wide variety of harmful bacteria, including Listeria, E.coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, Yersinia, and Brucella.” 

Like so much government disinformation, that claim is only partially correct. Bovine milk can become contaminated with anything after it leaves the cow’s udder due to unclean milking or handling processes but to suggest that milk from healthy cattle naturally teems with such nasties is disingenuous.

Some groups of humans have consumed the milk of cows and other mammals for thousands of years. Consuming animal milk may have helped human immune systems adapt to living intimately with ungulates, a major source of meat, muscle power, and fertilizer in addition to milk and its sundry cognates. The oldest confirmed production of cheese dates from 7,200 years ago!
