UPDATE: Father of Wounded Marine at Walter Reed Last Night: “Biden had the audacity to try to visit my son this evening. He was not welcomed”

 Via Billy

An account by a father of a wounded Marine says Joe Biden tried to visit his son last night but Biden was not welcomed by the family. So far that appears to be the only report on Biden’s visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The White House has been silent on the visit with no photos released, accounts of visits or even reports of Biden awarding Purple Hearts.

This column will take no prisoners.  Nor will it evacuate anyone.  No, what I am writing needs to be said and I will say it.

President Biden is not able to effectively run the United States of America.  He is directly responsible for the death and destruction in Afghanistan as well as thousands of poor migrants being brutalized in Mexico at this very moment.

These are humanitarian disasters on a massive scale.

Mr. Biden is a diminished man living in a world of delusion.  And now the entire world knows it.

No one really understands who, exactly, is running the Executive Branch of the U.S. government.  It is certainly not Joe Biden. But the President hired his staff and the cabinet members and the woke Generals, who are embarrassing the military and putting them in grave danger.

Thirteen Cuban refugees make it to Key West in a small rustic boat, are arrested upon arrival.


Three quick-hit style bits of news & commentary. First, Thirteen Cuban refugees make it to Key West in a small rustic boat, are arrested upon arrival.

Note this quotation from the embedded Miami news piece (bolding added):

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained 13 Cuban migrants on Tuesday morning near Key West.

According to Chief Patrol Agent Thomas G. Martin, the migrants were part of a “smuggling event” and agents detained them after they made landfall in a “rustic vessel.”

If they don’t qualify as asylum seekers, officials will likely be deporting the group back to Cuba.

Having experienced the “joys” of Communism, they’re not the voters the Left is looking for.  But then, neither were the Vietnamese whose refugee status and migration to the US were opposed by the Democrats.  Including President Asterisk.

Colonel Frank Bragg of The Committee to Support and Defend: Sign Letter to hold Austin and Milley Accountable

I’m reaching out to you today to introduce myself and to give you additional information about your membership in the Committee to Support and Defend.

Because of our staff transition, you have not heard much from us in recent weeks – but I can commit to you that we will move forward with determination, deliberation, thoughtfulness, and integrity.  As the Committee’s new Chairman, I consider it an honor to serve along side you on this committee.  We have a lot of work to do.


I understand that Lt. Col. Allen West recently forwarded you some information on me.  I’m happy to answer any additional questions that you may have.  The most important thing to know is that, like you, I committed myself to serving this great nation.  While I no longer serve in the military, I do still feel called to protect and defend our country.  I can tell that you feel the same.  In the coming days, I’m going to call on you and provide some opportunities for you and me to work together to better America.


Right now, I have an important request.  I’m asking you to seriously consider joining hundreds of other former servicemembers calling for the resignation of Generals Lloyd Austin and Mark Milley.  The letter I’ve helped put together can be found at  The Committee to Support and Defend is working to hold these two powerful, high ranking officers accountable – something that their military training, education, experience, leadership development, and character should have inspired them to do themselves.  I’m hoping that you will stand along side me as we fight to preserve the integrity that our military is known for.  The ideal and the idea of TRUST is vitally important to us; restoring TRUST is essential.  Let each of us be a voice to this end.


Once I’ve given all of our former service members an opportunity to sign this letter, we’ll release it – I’ll send you a copy before it goes out.


Thank you for your continued willingness to stand up for something larger than yourself.  I’m proud to serve along side you.


Very Respectfully,


Colonel Frank Bragg (Retired)

Biden Team's 'Helpful' Taliban Told State Dept to Go 'F**k Themselves' as They Blocked Americans From Kabul Airport

Via Billy

The Biden team told us about how the Taliban were being “helpful” in the final days at the Kabul airport, even “pragmatic and businesslike” in the words of Gen. Frank McKenzie. This, despite repeated stories of people being stopped or hindered from getting into the airport.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan even treated us to the ridiculous possibility that they might funnel money now to the Taliban, dependent upon their behavior and living up to their “commitments” as though the Taliban hadn’t already been blowing those “commitments” all over the place.

Since the Biden administration was so horrible at going out and trying to get Americans and Afghan allies past the Taliban checkpoints, many of those people reached out to members of Congress for help.

But now some more of the stories are getting out, confirming how bad it was and how far from helping the Taliban’s actions were, contrary to what the Biden team claimed. “They were creating as much problem as they could,” said one Afghan-American that Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) was helping.

Atlantic Writer David Frum Makes Case for Self-Disarmament (Damn, if that don't take the cake)

Most anti-gun activists are content to disarm law-abiding Americans through the legislatures and the courts. Ban schemes, confiscation campaigns, and “buy back” crusades are the tools of their trade, and they’ve used these unconstitutional laws and strategies to great effect in states across the country.

But Atlantic writer David Frum has a better idea. What if, instead of taking America’s guns by force, we convince gun owners to give up their guns willingly? Rather than disarmament, Frum suggests self-disarmament.

The idea might sound laughable, but as Frum points out, campaigns targeting drunk drivers have done much in the last 40 years to stigmatize driving drunk. Never mind that driving drunk is irresponsible while the right to own a gun is enshrined in our nation’s founding document. Frum wants a cultural revolution, and he believes he has the data to justify it.

The military brass may regret firing Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller

 Via Hal

The maverick Marine fired after he released a now-viral video slamming the US military for botching the exit from Kabul, issued a clear threat to his aging superiors Saturday.

“The baby boomer’s turn is over,” Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller told The Post. “I demand accountability, at all levels. If we don’t get it, I’m bringing it.”

He also quoted Thomas Jefferson, saying “every generation needs a revolution.”

Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller was fired for speaking the truth about the fact that the top brass in the Pentagon never pay for their bad decisions, even as the ordinary men and women get no quarter for their errors. As soon as he’s free, Scheller intends to change that two-tiered system.

In fact, we’ve been watching unfold for some time in America a two-tiered justice system. In the civilian world, one tier, the higher one, is for leftists and the other, the lower one, is for conservatives.
