20 thoughts on “American Empire”

  1. That picture shoes the priorities of the Sniffer’s administration…and more chillingly it is a portent of the future of the West. Whilst we debate the BS as to whether women can have penises and gender nonconformity, the West is crumbling before our eyes….and too many of us on the right have stood back and allowed it to happen. For too long we have tolerated the absurd, we have tolerated the offensive and we have tolerated the intolerant. We will reap what we sow from excessive tolerance.

    In the meantime, spare a thought for the girls and women of Afghanistan as darkness falls….probably forever.

  2. That grotesque slap-dash fop swanning about the White House trying to be fabulous, talking to the mechanical Psaki doing a stilted impression of a fun person (only having heard about fun from other people), and otherwise comporting himself as an irrepressible enfant terrible from whom adults trying must try to hide their smiles, in actuality reminds me of the character in Kenny Everett.

    Mr Angry of Mayfair.

  3. Some say we’ve been watching a movie, like The Truman Show, for years. I waver. It’s when I see stuff like this, Jill B, and the pic the other day with Joe carrying the handbag, I think it’s just the public humiliation of criminals prior to the revelations of decades of corruption. There have just been too many “names” wearing moon boots in recent times for it to be a coincidence.

  4. Excellent site Zippy.
    Bookmarked.
    Perhaps this will bring the O’Biden/Harris administration into the courts due to their chucking under the bus, the Intelligence Agencies.
    They must be getting a bit pissed off with this.

  5. Excellent summary of the USA from Mark Steyn:
    “Harmless as an enemy, and treacherous as a friend”: a devastating indictment, and entirely correct. But it neglects the ultimate reality: the bungling superpower can inflict defeat only on itself.

  6. I’m utterly disgusted by the regime in the US.

    Biden’s On Vacation, Now Jen Psaki’s On Vacation Too (16 Jul)

    The disaster in Afghanistan is bad enough, Biden’s cowardice is really despicable. When you’ve screwed up this badly, at least address the American people. Instead, Biden’s hiding out at Camp David and promising a speech in a few days. Kamala Harris isn’t taking questions and Jen Psaki decided to go on vacation after the media spent weeks touting how incredibly tough she is.

    The level of irresponsibility here is really something.

    Screwing up is bad. Running for the hills and waiting for it to blow over is completely unacceptable behavior from the gang with the top job in the land.

    Well the MSM is going to have to think about things. Apparently 200 of their people are stuck in Kabul and can’t get out. And the Taliban have people going house to house trying to find journalists.

  7. How can you occupy a country fighting a COIN war for 20 years, knowing that one day you must leave, and not develop air strike capability in that nation’s air force?

    Promise to provide over the horizon support?

    Right…with no bases in any of the six bordering countries that was never going to be a viable prospect in the long term, or even, it’s been proven, in the short term.

    Biden should be calling for state department and military heads on platters.

    Instead he’s gone on holiday.

    Let’s hope the folk in Canberra responsible for such things are factoring in US decline to their calculations on our long term strategic prospects.

    That should focus their attention on the pathetically predictable lack of meaningful leadership. It probably won’t given that they gave the Hilbot a total free pass when their embassy staff in Benghazi were slaughtered wholesale.

  9. Roger:

    Biden should be calling for state department and military heads on platters.

    Why?
    He’s getting precisely what Obama wanted – the humiliation of the US, it’s allies wondering what the hell is going on in the White House, petro dollars flowing back into the Kingdoms, the US being crippled with inflation and energy dependence again, and Mr 10% filling the coffers.
    The Left hate the US because it is everything they despise.
    It looks like they’re winning Big League.
    The hyenas are circling and it has taken less than a year and a stolen election.

  10. Lyin’ Joe Biden pulled the rug out from the Afghan National Army and then sought to blame them for the country’s collapse to the Taliban.

    Logistical support and – most crucially – air support, were pulled in April.

    There are reports the ANA wasn’t even being supplied with ammunition.

    As for the remark that the Afghans were cowards, the Afghan army sustained more casualties per year than the US army did in the entire 20 year occupation.

    US allies – and enemies – will be taking note.

    Biden is a disgrace.
