Saturday Bullet Points: August 21, 2021

This past week may have been the most contentious and most dangerous week for the American people in decades. Why? Our government ceded total control of a country that, while not OUR country, was full of thousands of Americans who were there working for our government, working for U.S. companies performing jobs for our government and the government of that country, and even missionaries. No, the country was not ours. But our previous governments over the past two decades had operated in tandem with the Afghanistan government to find and eliminate terrorist operations and training centers already there while, at the same time, making certain no such operations were allowed to use Afghanistan to launch 9/11-style actions against the U.S. and our nation partners.

Today’s Bullet Points cover much of the latest news from Afghanistan. Please understand this changes hour-by-hour and will continue to do so. We also touch on other significant actions that are important to us all. Please have a great weekend and stay close to what you may see and hear from us at TruthNewsNetwork.

Bullet Points

  • One of the most shocking happenings is to watch how President Biden virtually hides from the media. And the three times he has faced the press during the week, the only questions he takes are from a few reporters that have obvious pre-planned (and approved) questions to ask. As you can imagine the White House staff to a person have consistently deflected realistic questions the President refuses to hear and certainly will not answer while maintaining a lie that President Biden has NOT refused to answer questions!

  • While watching what Biden has brought to the American people along with his Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, have you wondered how your fellow Americans feel about this craziness? Know this: the questions about President Biden’s handling of this are NOT from just Republicans. Democrats in the media and across the nation are looking on in awe at the ineptness of President Biden. And the polling numbers are in. It doesn’t look good for the President.

  • In Friday afternoon’s press briefing by the President (that started 50-minutes late), President Biden told the nation that U.S. forces have secured the Kabul Airport. Regarding Americans who are blocked from the airport by Taliban fighters and by fear of being injured or even killed, Biden said this: “We’re going to do everything we can to provide safe evacuation to our Afghan allies,” said the president before clarifying that, “any American who wants to come home, we will get you home.” We heard his promises, but what we are seeing in real-time says something exactly the opposite.

  • I’m sure you heard that the Taliban captured billions of dollars in U.S. military equipment including 600,000 weapons. It is unconscionable to believe our military walked away from such dramatic assets and military infrastructure. What should be done? Former President Trump stated there was a plan in place under his watch that would have in advance of withdrawal withdrawn all of our weaponry and vehicles and would have destroyed our military locations around Afghanistan to prevent the Taliban from using it all in terrorist activities. What are the plans for this in the Biden Administration? For complete details, click on this link:
  • It’s no longer conservative media outlets that are attacking President Biden for this horror created in Afghanistan. Believe it or not, Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe tore into Biden Thursday morning in an interview with Donnie Deutsch, who is NOT a conservative. To hear Joe break down what’s ahead, click on this link:
  • What about all those Americans stuck behind Taliban lines who desperately want (and many are even trying) to get to the airport to get on a plane to go home to the U.S.? The U.S. State Department has released statements to those Americans of what to do. In part, here’s that message: “We are processing people at multiple gates. Due to large crowds and security concerns, gates may open or close without notice. Please use your best judgment and attempt to enter the airport at any gate that is open.” How would YOU feel in such a scenario in which the Taliban that is heavily armed and is actually executing people stand between you and that airport and our government will not even “guarantee your safety?” For complete details, click on this link:
  • We know there are many Americans behind Taliban lines. The Biden Administration strangely does NOT know the number or are hiding from the American people. One American woman and her daughter were in Afghanistan visiting family members when this debacle unfolded last week. They’ve been struggling to get out of Afghanistan to return home to Colorado while desperately evading Taliban fighters. While details are a bit sketchy it appears Mom and daughter got out of Afghanistan and are headed home. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Mike Pompeo who was President Trump’s Secretary of State had previously been the CIA Director. Because of that, Pompeo has extensive knowledge of pretty much everything regarding the operations of the Taliban in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Middle East. Pompeo when CIA Director put numerous intelligence operations in place in Afghanistan that he says now are obliterated by the Biden Administration’s actions. U.S. Intelligence, according to Pompeo, is set back decades. For complete details, click on this link:
  • One would think the Afghan people would be adjusted to life with terror surrounding them 24/7. After all, Afghanistan has been under constant siege of bad actors both domestically and from abroad. In that setting, it seems that they would simply quietly wait for this initial surge of violence at the hands of the Taliban to pass. But desperation has taken over the Afghan people. Mothers are even tossing their infant children to U.S. military members over barbed wire surrounding the airport perimeter begging those U.S. soldiers to take their children to safety in the U.S. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Yes, there are important matters happening back home in the U.S. In fact, there are other travesties underway in the Biden Administration that are NOT about Afghanistan or terrorists overseas. It actually involves potential terrorists crossing our southern border and are being welcomed by Biden’s Homeland Security. In fact, Biden et al are about to publish an Executive order that will bypass federal immigration judges who normally determine whether or not to give illegal immigrants asylum. Those Biden folks will be given the exclusive authority to declare any (and all) illegals eligible for asylum and to give them instant citizenship! For complete details, click on this link:
