US used secret CIA base outside Kabul to evacuate Americans, 1,000 Afghan commandos & their families – media
Post Date: 2021-09-02 11:20:09 by Ada
The US reportedly used a secret CIA compound to rescue Americans, along with members of elite Afghan special forces, amid the chaos in and around the Kabul airport. The compound, known as the Eagle Base and located less than three miles north of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, was used to covertly get hundreds of US nationals and at least 1,000 Afghan commandos and their families out of the country, Politico reported, citing flight documents and three highly placed sources. The evacuees were instructed to head out to the base in order to avoid security risks and the general chaos outside the airport, which was flooded by locals after the Afghan capital was seized by the ...
Australia: New Law Allows Feds To Hack And Control Online Accounts Of Political Dissidents Without a Warrant
Post Date: 2021-09-02 11:06:32 by Ada
The Australian parliament has recently passed one of the most egregious attacks on privacy rights and civil liberties in the world. The Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2021 was rapidly snuck through with little debate or fanfare in a 24 hour window. The piece of legislation has the support of both the Liberal and Labour parties. The law is a radical departure from due process. The new powers allow Australian Federal Police (AFP) to hack and take over the personal accounts of targets they label as "terrorists," which in recent years has meant white people who advocate for nationalist beliefs, as well as other dissenting opinions. Under the new ...
The U.S. Has A Plan For What's Next in Afghanistan - It Does Not Include Peace
Post Date: 2021-09-02 10:58:40 by Ada
Secretary Antony Blinken @SecBlinken 1:34 UTC · Aug 31, 2021I want to drive home today that Americas work in Afghanistan continues. We have a plan for whats next, and were putting it into action. The codename for the plan which Secretary Blinken is putting into action has not been officially released. It will likely be called Eternal Revenge or something similar. The U.S. is not a good loser. Nor are President Biden and Blinken. They will take revenge for the public outcry their chaotic evacuation of troops and civilians from Afghanistan has caused. The Taliban will be blamed for it even as they, following U.S. requests, had escorted groups of ...
When the Constitution Fails Us
Post Date: 2021-09-02 10:50:20 by Ada
I have been writing for years asking if we still have the U.S. Constitution. That issue has come into sharper focus in the past 18 months as mayors and governors have created dictatorial powers and exercised those powers to interfere with personal autonomy in America. They have done this in utter disregard for the freedoms protected by the Constitution they have sworn to uphold by asserting that public health trumps personal liberty. Here is the backstory. Government is essentially the negation of freedom. If the values underlying the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights maximum personal liberty and minimal government are to be taken ...

Former interpreter says 'vast majority of Afghans' view Taliban as 'lesser of two evils' compared to the US

A US soldier assigned to the Headquarters Battalion, 1st Armored Division, watched as a UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopter prepared to land during an advise and assist mission in southeastern Afghanistan on August 4, 2019. Alejandro Licea/US Army/Reuters The US's incomprehension of Afghanistan's culture led to its failures there, an ex-interpreter said. Frontline troops weren't given training in cultural literacy, which had major consequences, he said. Experts and a Congress-created watchdog have made similar points. An Afghan American who served as an interpreter for the US during the war in Afghanistan said in a Washington Post op-ed that America's lack of knowledge about ...
Iran Unveils New Components of Air Defence Systems
Post Date: 2021-09-02 10:39:12 by Horse
Capable of Detecting Stealth Aircraft The Islamic Republic moved toward self-sustainability in terms of defence equipment and weapons after it was banned globally from buying armaments from other countries. The country's defence industry has made several leaps since then, including in air defences, which shot down an intruding US RQ-4A drone in 2019. Iran has announced the induction of six new domestic military projects into its armed forces. Yet, the country has only unveiled two of them to the public a new radar and a command centre for Iranian-made air defence systems. Tehran expects these latest additions to increase the country's ability to defend its territory from ...

Feds and Media Claim to be Worried About White People Expressing Respect for Taliban Victory

This is just some Jews in the federal security services accusing /pol/ and Hoax Watch of being terrorists for joking around about their massive Anus War failure. No biggie. CNN: As the United States-backed government in Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and US troops raced to leave the country, White supremacist and anti-government extremists have expressed admiration for what the Taliban accomplished, a worrying development for US officials who have been grappling with the threat of domestic violent extremism. That praise has also been coupled with a wave of anti-refugee sentiment from far-right groups, as the US and others rushed to evacuate tens of thousands of people from ...
The FDA first approved Ivermectin for HUMANS back in 1996…
Post Date: 2021-09-02 10:27:49 by Horse
media outlets are deliberately lying to the public The mainstream media is lying on behalf of Big Pharma and the medical fascists by falsely claiming that ivermectin is a de-wormer for animals, when the reality is that the anti-parasite drug was first approved for human use back in 1996. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is really a private corporation posing as a public health agency, ivermectin should not be used by humans because it is intended for animals. A quick and easy fact check reveals this claim to be patently false. The fact of the matter is that while ivermectin is, in fact, used in animals, it is also approved for use in humans. The ...

Covid and the Rising Education Revolution

What Covid has made clear is that the future doesnt need to look like the past. When will things return to normal? all of us have asked, plaintively, more than once, as weve seen the repeated delays, new variants, and so on perpetuate the cloud of Covid yet another season. A return to normal for the paradigmatic activities of human lifefor weddings and funerals, for breaking bread with our friends, for work and worship and business; for these a return to normal cant come soon enough. But then there are other domainsactivities, industries, systemswhere Covid has been not so much an inhibiting muzzle on normally flourishing activities as a spotlight ...

Two more leading health care regulators, genuine experts in their field, have resigned their long-held positions just as the flu and COVID season is upon us. Their exit follows high-profile resignations at the Centers for Disease Control -- Nancy Messonnier and Anne Schuchat. Word is out that these professionals don't like being issued orders about what the 'science' is from the White House before they can make their determinations and they'll willing to ...

A Ruling Class with Blood on Its Hands

Allow me to suggest three cheat codes for separating truth from propaganda in the Age of Mass Media Manipulation: (1) Whatever is censored is true. (2) Refusal to audit elections is proof that vote totals are unverifiable and fraudulent. (3) Any president who inexplicably disappears for days at a time and admits that he is "not allowed" to answer questions from the press is not actually president. If you put (1), (2), and (3) together, you get an incompetent and schizophrenic government incapable of protecting its armed forces overseas, securing its borders at home, preventing runaway inflation from destroying the economy, or acting in the best interest of the American ...

About six-in-ten White adults of all ages say the declining share of White people in the population is neither good nor bad for society. Pew Research Center, August 23 2021 I was fascinated and frustrated by a recent series of polls conducted by the Pew Research Center on attitudes toward Americas declining White population. While there are several interesting layers to Pews findings, the key message is that a significant majority of White respondents indicated that they feel the declining share of White people in the population is neither good nor bad for society. In other words, they feel that nothing will fundamentally change for them or their children despite ...
