The Biden State Department has been forced to admit that there are Americans still on the ground in Afghanistan that are seeking to leave, but that the Taliban — now in control of that country — is refusing to allow any charter flights to airlift Americans and/or American assets out of that country.

President Biden and his handlers have met the issue with mostly silence, their self-imposed timeline for a hasty withdrawal, stranding thousands of Americans and American assets behind what now must be called “enemy lines.”

No Americans were on the two Qatari flights that were permitted to leave…


In an exhibition of a disturbing level of confusion and incoordination — and widely divergent determinations, two of the chief authorities on the security of our nation in combatting Islamofascist terrorism took diametrically opposed positions on the matter.

On the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 al Qaeda attacks on the United States — attacks that took 2,996 lives that day and many more since, FBI Director Christopher Wray and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas had very different belief system as to the security of our nation and the threat posed by the budding reconstitution of Islamofascist terror organizations in…


With the incredible failure in planning and leadership, not to mention the almost belligerent reluctance to act on the part of the Biden administration on the issue of Afghanistan — and the subsequent posturing by the mainstream media and the political Left, the time has arrived for serious self-examination.

What have we become as a country when we can elect such politically self-absorbed narcissists into leadership? Who are we as a people if we elect such unaware, arrogant, and ineffective embarrassments to office?

In one of the most embarrassing and chilling responses to a question posed by a member of…


An official for the UN’s Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said Tuesday he was “optimistic” after several local Taliban leaders expressed support for the education of females following the Islamofascist group’s seizure of Afghanistan.

UNICEF’s chief of field operations in Afghanistan, Mustapha Ben Messaoud, said he met with local Taliban representatives in the conquered territories of Kandahar, Herat, and Jalalabad, among others, who claimed they wanted schools “up and running.” Other Taliban leaders said they are waiting for guidance from higher-ups…

Adding that 11 of the country’s 13 UNICEF field offices were operational, Messaoud said, “We have not a single issue with…


Not since the US Civil War has our nation been so divided. But where slavery and state sovereignty were the issues in 1861, today the divide is much deeper; along ideological and cultural lines. There is no line on a map. The divide is among the people.

Take a moment to talk with the average resident from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, or New York City and you get one picture of what is right and wrong. Talk to someone from Texas, Florida, or fly-over country, and you get a polar-opposite view. The divide is geographically cultural.

States that harbor…


There is a lot of debate currently taking place surrounding the issue of COVID Vaccine Passports and other documentation where they apply to travel, employment, and the freedom to engage in society fully and without restriction. As Nazi-esque as this sounds, the argument is excluding a giant swath of people, illustrating the arrogance of the vax crowd.

I, like a great many others in the United States and around the world, contracted the COVID virus. While I was not hospitalized, it did knock me into a prone position for several days. …


There can be no doubt that Marxism is on the move in the United States. Those who have been paying attention to history understand that its introduction into our culture started at the turn of the 20th Century and has encroached into our society incrementally ever since.

When the Framers created the Republic — through the codification of the US Constitution and soon after the Bill of Rights, they understood that the documents were created to put the newly created government on notice that it had limitations and boundaries; that it was not the lord of the people, rather the…


Vice President Kamala Harris (D), was rightfully castigated for her insulting and arrogant — albeit unwitting — assault on Memorial Day when she tweeted, ‟Enjoy the long weekend” without uttering a word about those who died for our freedoms. President Biden’s tweet — ‟Stay cool this weekend” — was no better. But should we be surprised?

Of course, Memorial Day is a day reserved for reflection and the heartfelt offering of gratitude, not celebration. It is a day for reverence. …


If you weren’t actively looking for this item you would think the only threat to our military from the Marxists who now control the seats of power in Washington, DC, was from the battle sphere of Critical Race Theory. But those who have been tapped to vet extremism in the US military are an array of those who have taken up ideological arms against the United States in the War on Terror.

A recent article in FrontPage Magazine by Daniel Greenfield, exposes a list of Islamofascist operatives that the Biden administration has hand-picked to vet the US Armed Forces for…


Two pressures, both based on false-narrative and self-serving fear-mongering, saw cryptocurrencies dive overnight. The first in an announcement by China, a known currency manipulator, and the second by a continuous drip of smear by the US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.

The Communist Chinese government, which is all-in on seeing the digital yuan become the world reserve currency, displacing the US dollar, announced Tuesday that it banned financial institutions and payment companies from providing services related to cryptocurrency transactions. The ulterior-motive announcement also warned investors against speculative crypto trading.

This announcement led to a sell-off, led by Bitcoin tumbling (but then…
