Sadia Pirouzi, one of 4 women pilots in the Afghan Air Force, has been stoned to death by the Taliban. If we had an honest and effective media, you would hear her name repeatedly. If the major women’s rights groups or Democratic leadership, who claim to have a monopolies on compassion for such people, would be expressing their outrage. Their silence is just further proof of their hypocrisy. Unfortunately, Pirouzi’s death is just a preview of things to come.

The catastrophe unfolding in Afghanistan is simply the latest Big Fail by the Biden administration. The other Big Fail, still very much underway, is the dissolution of the southern border. Two million illegals are expected to invade the nation this year alone, bringing among them hardened criminals, terrorists, and Covid. But no matter, petty tyrant Democrats want to force us to mask up again and force us to vax up to “stop the spread.” Is anything more grimly laughable than that?
Inflation continues to climb, taking bigger bites from paychecks. Biden’s binge spending, with an able assist from Mitch McConnell and 18 other establishment Republicans, promises to stoke inflation even more.
And this is happening in just seven months of a four-year Biden-Harris term. If you don’t think things can get any worse, they will. Greater crises are in the offing. Democrats have repudiated Trump’s very sensible, very successful policies, foreign and domestic, and now through the next 3.5 years there will be hell to pay. Bad decisions will have terrible consequences. So, buckle up your seatbelts. The ride is going to get awfully rough.
In case you missed it, here’s my latest at American Thinker, which is aptly titled: “Three and a Half more Years of Biden-Harris.” The link is here. Thanks for reading!
The country’s response to the Coronavirus is the most damaging self-imposed event in our history. We have accepted the capricious and arbitrary taking of our rights with stunning passivity. I used to think Americans would in large numbers rise up and put a stop to massive efforts to eliminate freedoms. I thought it could never stand. Unfortunately, it seems I was wrong.
I hope the pendulum eventually swings back toward freedom. But I wouldn’t count on it.
Look at a few examples.
When conservatives, Trump supporters, or free speech advocates held rallies, they were called super spreader events. They were called destructive, selfish, dangerous, and murderers.

As this is being written, Afghanistan is on the brink of falling to the Taliban. Recall that we went to Afghanistan in the aftermath of 9/11 to root out Al Qadi. We ended up staying for 20 years. We stayed to nation-build … to transform Afghanistan into a peaceful, Western-oriented nation (more like a collection of tribes). Now, the U.S. is on the brink of failing spectacularly.
It’s important to note that I soured on the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan about the time Donald Trump decided to seek the presidency. Millions of Americans had come to that conclusion before I did. They were right much sooner.
In this photo we see Bob Mueller lying, We know that because people who attended the event confirmed his lips were moving.
When we last visited, we had begun to discuss the decline of the FBI. Its failures go hand in hand with the corruption of the DOJ. At one point, our nationally prominent law enforcement apparatus was the envy of the world. No more.
Here are a few more instances to ponder.
As much as you may have grown weary of hearing about it, remember Hillary’s emails? There was abundant evidence she committed a crime. The FBI director laid it out publicly. Yet, “J. Edgar” Comey took it upon himself to announce a decision not to prosecute. In spite of the fact that he has zero authority to make that determination.
Once respected, the FBI has become a disgrace
At one point most of us trusted the nation’s pre-imminent law enforcement agency to be effective, honorable, and non-partisan. I remember watching the FBI Story, with Jimmy Stewart (he was in the movie, not watching with me). A good flick that holds up well.
No institution has ever been perfect, but Americans in general had confidence in the FBI. Even under the tutelage of a flawed and narcissistic J. Edgar Hoover, the agency was revered. (If people had known Hoover was dressing up in women’s clothes, as widely reported, it might have changed things years ago. Today, of course, it wouldn’t be a big deal. Cross-dressing? Who doesn’t?) The agency that was once thought to be above politics is now a hostage to it.

Don’t surrender your freedom to “experts” and politicians
This afternoon, I’m recommending two articles for you to read.
One is by Daniel Horowitz at The Blaze. (Horowitz: No, this is not an epidemic of the unvaccinated)
It’s a deeper dive into COVID vaccinations possible impact on individual and public health. Horowitz’s analysis is thoughtful and strongly sourced, as always.

What does justice have to do with this?
If you think that moral outrage is the reason Democrats are pushing to oust Andrew Cuomo as New York governor, think again. Right. Sexual harassment is bad. Cuomo should be held strictly accountable if the allegations are substantiated.
But if Democrats were truly serious about sexual harassment charges against Cuomo, then they should have been excised by the sexual assault allegation lodged by Tara Reade, the one-time aide to Senator Joe Biden. Reade’s allegation is detailed and graphic.
Yet, Reade has been blown off by the Democrat establishment and corporate media. If sexual harassment or assault matter to Democrats – and if the woman is supposed to be believed, per the left’s trope – then why is Joe Biden in the White House?
