Biden Admin Blocking Private Flights From Evacuating Americans Out Of Afghanistan


“Rick Clay, who runs the private rescue group PlanB, told Fox News that the State Department is the only thing preventing the flights he’s organizing from leaving Afghanistan,” Fox News reported. “Two other American individuals separately involved in evacuation efforts, whom Fox News is not naming to avoid jeopardizing ongoing rescue efforts, similarly said that the State Department is the sole entity preventing their charter flights from leaving Afghanistan.”

One of the individuals that Fox News spoke to said that “all it takes is a f***ing phone call” to fix the problem and that it was unacceptable to be “negotiating with American lives.”

“If one life is lost as a result of this, the blood is on the White House’s hands. The blood is on their hands,” that individual said. “It is not the Taliban that is holding this up – as much as it sickens me to say that – it is the United States government.”

No, Ivermectin Overdoses Didn’t Overwhelm Oklahoma Hospitals And Force Gunshot Victims To Wait


A story circulating social media on Saturday — thanks to it being picked up by Rolling Stone and Rachel Maddow — claimed that hospitals in Oklahoma have been overwhelmed with people overdosing on horse dewormer, leaving gunshot victims in the lurch.

The story on its face was absurd, yet multiple media outlets pushed the claim, based on the word of a single doctor who gave an interview to KFOR. That doctor, Jason McElyea, claimed that the emergency rooms in Oklahoma “are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated.”

It’s now obvious that Biden doesn’t even want to stop the ever-growing border surge



“Whatever they do, I will come back, and I won’t stop trying until I get in,” Leonardo Velasquez Centeno, 25, told The Post. The Honduran is one of 1.1 million-plus would-be illegal migrants caught by US agents in the Biden administration’s first 7½ months. No one really knows how many have evaded capture.

President Joe Biden and others keep saying they’re working to stop it, but his actions — and, even more so, his inactions — suggest the opposite. Certainly, his party’s large left wing believes we should be letting everyone in, that the country can absorb millions and even grant them citizenship at the first opportunity.

Indeed, they expect those new citizens to be loyal Democratic voters.



Do they really think they will stay in power forever ? .....

Biden Decides To Help American Hostages After Learning The McFlurry Machine Repairman Is On The Plane


Biden announced in a speech that he would stop at nothing to save the hostages, reversing the administration's previous policy of just saying "eh whatever" to Americans trapped in a foreign country.

"We will not rest. We will not falter. We will not fail," Biden said sternly after learning the McFlurry repair guy was trapped on a plane at the airport in Kabul. "We will do anything we need to do to get this guy out." Reporters and commentators said that Biden appeared more lucid, focused, and charismatic than he's been in the past 20 years. "If we need to send in every last American soldier, we will do so. We'll start a new war if we have to. We'll pull out all the stops."

Biden Purges Trump Appointees From Numerous Boards In ‘Unprecedented’ Departure From Norms



The Joe Biden administration is purging the federal government’s constellation of advisory boards and commissions of Donald Trump appointees, even though such people are typically appointed to fixed terms and are not removed by new presidents.

Officials received curt letters, with one dated today saying “Please submit your resignation to me by the close of business today. Should we not receive your resignation, your position with the Board will be terminated effective 6:00 pm tonight. Thank you.”

The removals range from military service academies to highly credentialed experts at obscure entities where politics are unlikely to be an issue.

Biden's $3.5 Trillion 'Infrastructure' Plan Includes Massive Attacks on U.S. Energy Producers



  1. Imposing Huge New Costs on Production
  • Increased Royalty Rates: Would raise onshore royalty rate floor by more than half from 12.5% to 20% on new leases and would raise the already high offshore royalty rate floor to 20%.
  • New Royalties on Venting/Flaring: Would require royalties to be paid on all gas produced, including gas used or consumed for the benefit of the lease such as gathering compressors and gas that is consumed or lost by venting, flaring, or fugitive releases, with limited exceptions, which would raise royalty payments on average by 6.5%.
  • 1500-2000% Bonding Increase: Would increase onshore federal lease bond minimum by 15X for a federal lease bond, by 20X for a statewide bond, and removes the nationwide bond option. Additionally, it calls for rulemaking that will require bonding to cover 100% of the reclamation costs of a lease on federal lands that have less than 0.05% of federal wells orphaned.
  • New Expression of Interest Fee: Would impose a minimum $15/acre to notify the government of public interest in leasing. Onshore leases can be as large as 2,560 acres, thus costing up to $38,400/lease.
  • New “Resource” Fee: Would impose a $4/acre annual fee on producing leases, thus costing up to $10,240/lease for onshore leases, and $23,040/lease for offshore leases.
  • New Leasing Fee: Would impose a $6/acre annual fee on non-producing leases, thus costing up to $15,360 for each onshore lease, and $34,560 for each offshore lease.
  • New Severance Tax Fee: Would impose a new annual, non-refundable Federal severance fee “tax” on every barrel of oil equivalent produced from new leases on federal lands and waters.
  • New Idled Wells Fee: Would impose an annual cost anywhere from $500-$7,500 per idled well per year, and would deem a well “nonoperational” after 2 years, down from 7 years.

Biden Has A ‘Whole Of Government’ Plan For Everything … Except Rescuing Americans From Afghanistan



He has a “whole-of-government agenda” to fight COVID, to tackle global warming, to “create good-paying, union jobs for Americans.”

His administration announced a “whole-of-government process that will lift up the voices of federal scientists of many perspectives and backgrounds.”

He promises a “whole-of-government effort” to promote competition in the American economy.

He says he will deliver “an ambitious whole-of-government equity agenda.”

Breitbart has done the yeoman’s work of gathering up as many of the things Biden says the “whole of government” is doing. The list is 55 items strong and includes the above plus everything from China, supply-chain bottlenecks, Microsoft Exchange vulnerabilities, Ebola in Africa, Russia’s poisoning of an opposition leader, offshore wind energy, and on and on and on.

Of course, none of this makes any sense. What does “whole of government” even mean? Does that mean that the 51 full-time employees managing the federal government’s helium fund are now involved in Texas’ abortion law?

What happens if a Boeing, Lockheed Martin, or the likes says "Nah. We are not forcing our sub contractors to get the shot." Is Biden just going to kill the programs?

In the past, the contractors have bent over backwards to satisfy requirements so as not to loose contracts. That's a lot of people to lay off if a contract gets cancelled.
