They Chopped Actress' Feet Off: Afghan-American Filmmaker's Chilling Taliban Story

Via Tuan Hoang

Award-winning filmmaker Sonia Nassery Cole is deeply distressed knowing what lies ahead for her native Afghanistan, and particularly the country’s women, under Taliban rule.

It’s a record of brutality she knows all too well based on her travels back to the Near Eastern nation.

Cole — who escaped to the United States followed the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979  — has made the Taliban the subject of two feature films she wrote and directed: “The Black Tulip” (2010) and “I Am You” (2019), both based on true stories.

Washington vs. Lee


He has already taken his place in history; not as an American, but as a Southern patriot and martyr, of whom America was not worthy. Every thought of his brain, every pulsation of his heart, every fold and fibre of his being, were Southern. Not a drop but of pure Virginia blood flowed in his veins. Virginian, Southern, Confederate, secession, from crown to sole, he had no aspiration in common with America as America now is, or sympathy with her works as they now are; and from the day on which his venerable State seceded from the American Union there was not an hour when he would not have gladly offered up life and all that life holds dear on the altar of Southern rights against American oppression.


OXFORD, Miss., Dec. 5, 1870. To Col. William H. McCardle, and others, Committee, etc.,

Vicksburg, Miss.

GENTLEMEN: When, on the occasion of Gen. Lee’s death, I received your invitation to deliver an address on the 19th of January next, at the city of Vicksburg, the strongest impulses prompted me to an immediate and cordial acceptance. Subsequent reflection, however, showed me that I could not so regulate my engagements as to permit the making of a positive promise to be present on that proudly mournful occasion.

If my long delay in giving you a final answer seems strange, consider it as due to my anxious desire to avoid the necessity of relinquishing such an opportunity of giving voice to the emotions which fill my soul when contemplating the life that has just closed amid the tears of a nation’s sorrow.

Exclusive — Oliver North: Weapons, Equipment Abandoned in Afghanistan Will Be ‘Reverse-Engineered in China, ‘Used Against Us’

U.S. weapons and military equipment abandoned by the Biden administration in Afghanistan will be reverse-engineered by China and Russia and then used against American interests, retired Lt. Col. Oliver North said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

The Biden administration leftist behind “some of the most sophisticated weapons and equipment we’ve ever made for the military,” North stated. He warned, “It’s going to be reverse-engineered in China. It will be reverse-engineered in Russia. It will be used against us in other campaigns.”

North predicted that the Taliban, ISIS, and Haqqani Network would collectively become “the best armed criminal enterprise in the history of mankind” due to the Pentagon’s abandonment of military equipment, vehicles, and weaponry in Afghanistan.

BOMBSHELL: Former Deputy SECDEF Claims Predator Drone Operator Ordered To STAND DOWN Against Kabul Airport Bomber

 Via Billy

Univision aired a bombshell allegation in the midst of its coverage of the United States' disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. Per former Army Green Beret and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Roger Pardo-Maurer, the Department of Defense had knowledge of the homicide bomber at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, and scrambled a Predator drone only to order it to stand down as it locked on its target. Per Pardo-Maurer, the stand-down order was given in deference to negotiations with the Taliban.

Bombshell! Leaked Transcripts Reveal Biden Pressured Then-Afghan President Ghani to Lie About Taliban Advances to Downplay Crisis

 Via Billy

Biden then offered Ghani US military aid, including air support, if he agreed to lie about the situation on the ground. He also asked the Afghan president to gather powerful warlords in the area to help change the narrative about the Taliban winning.

As if it wasn’t bad enough for Sleepy Joe already, even the Deep State has begun to throw him under the bus for his incompetency in Afghanistan. 

On Tuesday, Reuters obtained leaked transcripts of Biden’s final call with Ashraf Ghani – the recently departed president of Afghanistan – before the Taliban completed their overthrow of the country.

Missing Ballots in Three States Exceed Joe Biden’s Victory Margins

Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative and a senior legal fellow of the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, said president Joe Biden’s margins of victory in Arizona, Nevada, and Wisconsin in the 2020 presidential election were narrower than the states’ respective totals of unaccounted-for ballots.

Biden’s margin of victory in Wisconsin was approximately 20,000 votes despite the number of ballots “missing or undeliverable” in the state amounting to 83,000, von Spakovsky noted.

“Remember the margin of victory in Wisconsin was only 20,000 votes, and that basically 82,000 ballots were either lost or undeliverable or were rejected,” von Spakovsky said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “That’s four times the margin of victory.”

An open letter to Stone Mountain Park’s next management company

 Via Carl


We are the Stone Mountain Action Coalition (SMAC), a group of concerned citizens and community leaders interested in the future of Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park. We are among the Park’s strongest supporters and advocates for its tremendous potential.

As Georgia taxpayers continue to support the Park financially, we are invested– literally, and want nothing more but to see it succeed. However, the Park’s Confederate theme has greatly tarnished the Park’s image and diminished its visitor pool. With a new management company, Stone Mountain Park has the opportunity to begin anew. We envision a Park that portrays an accurate depiction of history and reflects the values of Georgia and Metro Atlanta’s diverse community. We are eager to work with an incoming management company interested in transforming the Park from a Confederate shrine with the world’s largest Confederate Memorial, into a landscape of racial reconciliation and a symbol of peace.

Marine General Al Gray (VN)

I’m posting an email I received from Marine General Al Gray three years ago on the anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. This evening, General Gray gave me permission to post it here for all war veterans:
As I write this, it is about 0740 Saigon time (I don’t call it Ho Chin Minh city). At this time, 44 years ago, we were again on the USS Blue Ridge. We had landed earlier, around 1530 after completing the evacuation at Tan Son Nhut Airfield and thinking we were done, I remember standing in back of the last CH53 to leave watching the fires we had started to burn down portions of the Headquarters complex as well as other equipment. I couldn’t help but think about all the brave Warriors from our Nation, our many Allies and our South Vietnamese comrades who fought for the simple idea of helping South Vietnam remain free. Let me say here as well, had not the South Vietnamese fought well and with honor in the end, we would have taken casualties during the evacuation. 
Having arrived on the Blue Ridge, we found out they had not finished at the Embassy. We boarded a CH-46 and headed back in. While approaching the Embassy, we got word everyone was out so we returned to the Flag Ship.
Personally, I knew a number of the RVN officers at Saigon from previous experience. We offered to evacuate them; to a man they said No! They had promised they would fight to the end. Interestingly, I maintained some contact with RVN Marine Company Commanders who were still fighting as guerrillas in I Corps during the period leading up to (and after) the evacuation.
Enough said. Just wanted our Vietnam Veterans to know that i believe you should always stand tall!
Warm Regards and Semper Fidelis,
~~Al Gray
