AFGHANISTAN: On Saturday, Afghanistan’s president claimed he would be able to defend Kabul (pop. 6 million). On Sunday, he fled the country shortly before Taliban terrorists invaded Kabul and claimed the presidential palace.

CLICK [1:48] to hear FAUXTUS assure us over and over throughout July that the Taliban was never, ever going to take over.

Back in April, VFAUXTUS bragged about having a key role in deciding to pull our troops out of Afghanistan.

DVE: I believe these tweets qualify as inciting domestic violence under the Department of Homeland Security’s latest advisory, which says that threats to the Homeland continue to be “posed by domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence [who are] increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity.”

ENERGY: FAUXTUS has done everything he can to reduce domestic energy production. Now that folks are pissed about rising gas prices, his response is to beg OPEC to increase its production. As I recall, under Trump, we were net energy exporters and gas prices were excellent.

H.R. 1: This unconstitutional power grab has been passed by the House. In the wee hours last Wednesday, Chuckie Schmucker tried to slime it through the Senate. Thankfully, Ted Cruz stayed awake and was able to block it. CLICK [1:04] to hear his statement, which was tweeted by Forbes.

I first found this item at Not the Bee and tried to find even one major news source that reported on it. These are the links I found. Notice who is NOT listed!

KLAVAN: [5:27] – Andrew articulately explains why he believes feminism today is anti-male, anti-female, and anti-the values that most women hold.

MILITARY: Thanks to the FAUX administration’s hasty withdrawal (minus a peace deal or follow up mission), billions of dollars worth of U.S. military equipment now belongs to Islamic extremists.

Let me guess, we topped off the fuel tanks and left the keys in the visors?” – Spearsy27

NBC SUCKS: CLICK [:13] to hear NBC spew fake news about the latest terror advisory from the Department of Homeland Security. You can read the advisory for yourself at the link below.

I noted a strong emphasis on violent extremism, which I’ve yet to see in any of the right-wing stuff I consume daily. Most of us are into peaceful, legal means of protest, not hurting people or blowing up buildings.

I also noted that NBC skimmed right over the top point, which is that “through the remainder of 2021, racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists will remain a national threat priority for the United States.”

RESIST: I saw this on FB – “Walking into a restaurant. Hello. Table for two, please. Sure. Do you and your guest have your vaccination cards? Can you tell us who our server will be? It looks like Brad. Great, can you show us Brad’s vaccination card? Also, we’d like to see proof that he is not carrying HIV, Hepatitis A or B, or any other communicable disease. And we’d prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs, so could you provide us with Brad’s most recent tox screen? Um, let me get the manager. That would be great. Thanks.”

SNOPES: David Mikkelson, who co-founded Snopes with his wife Barbara, has been suspended as the website completes an internal review of his chronic plagiarism. So far, they’ve retracted 54 articles in which he lifted content, word-for-word from other websites using “Jeff Zarronandia” or “Snopes Staff” bylines, and neglected to include links to his sources.

Mikkelson says, “I didn’t come from a journalism background. I wasn’t used to doing news aggregation. A number of times I crossed the line to where it was copyright infringement. I own that.” Sorry, pal, but plagiarism isn’t solely a journalism issue. You should’ve learned this in grade school. Also the part about putting your own name on the work you post at your own site. Sheesh.

Using pseudonyms sounds like he was trying to puff up his site by making it look like they had an actual staff, when it was just him and his wife at the beginning.

FYI: In a spirit of full disclosure, I wish to inform all my readers that I mostly write my own content, but if I’m too tired or the original is as well written as I could wish for, I tend to just swipe it. And, while I make a serious effort to include all the URLs, I don’t always include all the quotation marks.

STURGIS, SOUTH DAKOTA: [7:26] – Gov. Kristi Noem smashes back at Fauci for shaming Sturgis Bike Rally. She also discusses liberal COVID hypocrisy and how she’s handling immigration on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’

VAX: More than 3,000 fake COVID-19 vaccination cards were seized in Memphis, Tennessee, en route to other cities. They originated in China. Buying, selling, or using a counterfeit COVID-19 vaccination cards is a crime, and violators will face a fine and up to five years in prison.

WASHINGTON POST: A federal judge has ruled that WaPo published a story about Rep. Devin Nunes with “a reckless disregard of the truth.” That means the case will move forward instead of being thrown out.

This is a major step toward holding irresponsible media outlets accountable for spreading fake news,” Nunes told The Epoch Times in an email. “We now get to bring the Washington Post into discovery to see how they put together this phony story. These are no longer news outlets, they’re Pravda-style propaganda artists and character assassins, and the courts are our best hope to force some sense of responsibility on them.”
