Biden Abidin' by the Deadline

(Image by Gary Varvel)

 On 26 August (2021), a pair of suicide bombers struck the Hamid Karzai International Airport, killing 13 American service members.  

Two days later, the DoD released the names of The Fallen, while Task & Purpose posted a a tribute in their honor.

Meanwhile, the Harris-Biden Regime is Hell-bent to adhering to an artificial timetable:  Pentagon Mouthpiece, John Kirby, announced the final withdrawal of military troops in Afghanistan.

Nothing about ensuring no American citizen is left behind in the clutches of the Islamic Mordor’s minions, which in addition to the “Tollyban;” include ISIS, Al Qaeda, and ISIS-K.

To make matters worse, someone or a group of someones, with more wokeness than common sense, thought it was a grand idea to give the Taliban a list of the names of Americans and Afghan allies in order to “help evacuate them.”

Are you f*cking kidding me?  Further words fail me on this issue.

Oh sure, the Harris-Biden Regime launched a drone strike killing 2 “high profile” ISIS members along with an air strike that took-out several suicide bombers traveling in a truck.

But these meager retaliatory measures don’t quench the flames of a melting-down superpower, especially when the Harris-Biden Regime took deliberate steps to achieve such an epic failure—and continue attempting to shift the blame.  Which makes one wonder:  How can we have any confidence in our leaders?

The short answer for many of us is:  We don’t.  

Nor do we appreciate being a gaslit nation.

And this meltdown of political will has world-wide repercussions.  For starters, the US isn’t only country relying on the good-graces of the “Tollyban” to ensure the safety of their citizens.  

While here at The Homefront, someone has been fired over the Afghanistan debacle—unfortunately it isn’t the generals.

Speaking of Life here at The Homefront, one of my writer friends, Piper Bayard, has been maintaining daily updates on the unraveling of America’s involvement in Afghanistan:

17-24 August 2021

24-25 August 2021

26 August 2021 

27-28 August 2021

Most of  Piper’s fanbase support her position.  However, she’s received some push-back, usually in the form of justifying Sleepy Joe’s ineptitude, or going into OrangeManBad default mode.  She even received “author-slaining” from at least one fellow writer.  You know, someone who should be a standard-bearer for freedom of expression, especially against the harbingers of brutality and oppression.

Ever since Trump the Usurper “stole” the crown from Crooked Queen Clinton, I’ve been amazed and appalled by the assorted activist snowflakes willing to defend the indefensible in order to preserve their ideological outlook—while virtue signaling safely behind the Ramparts of Civilization. 

In the 12 years I've been blogging about current events I've refrained from accusing politicians of having "blood on their hands."  The phrase has been too overused, is melodramatic, and often false.

However, with the Biden-Tollyban Deadline due tomorrow before midnight, (31 August 2021), and with 13 service members, along with scores of Afghans needlessly killed, there's a first time for everything...

The Fall of Saigon 2.0

(Image by A.F. Branco)

 Saigon Kabul fell to the North Vietnamese Taliban this past weekend with total mayhem at the Kabul Airport.

Yes, I’m making the same Fall of Saigon comparison every news agency and current events commentator has made this past week.  But when you have similar images like this…

(Image from Historic Photographs)

…it’s impossible not to make such differentiation. 

Unlike our withdrawal from Vietnam (which I remember) where American citizens were evacuated, our current Department of State (DOS) abandoned American citizens and told them to go hide, while the Pentagon says there’s no plan to help Americans trapped in Afghanistan get to the airport.

Seriously?  What the f*ck!  

As several commentators have stated throughout the links I provided:  It’s not a matter of whether or not to leave Afghanistan, it’s a question of how.  Abandoning billions of dollars-worth of functioning military hardware, and thousands of Americans is not the way to “pick up our toys and go home.”

The exact number of Americans behind enemy lines is unknown, but is estimated to be between 5,000 and 10,000

Instead of ginning-up a plan to rescue a legion’s worth of Americans, our political and military leaders are doing what they have done best for the past 20 years—playing The Blame, Spin and Virtue Signal Game.

Oh, Sleepy Joe did wake up on Monday and gave a disgraceful speech, didn’t take any questions, then shuffled back to Camp David, after which his handlers posted a 
photo leaving Americans puzzled.

Despite any assurances Basement Biden may have mumbled about a few weeks ago…

…they were all lies, as a recent DoD IG report revealed.

Ben Shapiro explained why Afghanistan fell so quickly and what’s currently happening there now.  (Hint:  None of it is good). 

Meanwhile, Lame Stream Media outlets, like CNN, are having a tough time covering up for Biden.

As American citizens here in America are dealing with an invisible president

…the impact this scale of humiliation will have on future world affairs will be dire.

Barry O's B-Day Bash Bucked Covid Restrictions

(Image by Margolis & Cox)

 I was going to write about Barry O’s B-Day Bash last week, you know, the “scaled-down” party, the one where the DJ was forced to delete the pictures he posted.

But the breaking news of Gran Moff Cuomo’s resignation superseded the latest in Pandemic double standards.

Ben Shapiro pointed out:  us peasants have to comply with Pandemic Protocols, but our Ruling Class does not.

(Image found on Facebook)

Our nation’s Witch Doctor, Dr. Anthony Kung Flu Fauci, who continually scolds us for having family get-togethers, ran cover for Obama’s Covid Extravaganza, while the non-FOX networks covered for, instead of providing coverage of another flaunting of Pandemic Protocols by Dimtards. 

This hypocrisy is considered “okay” because one is either “sophisticated” or a “super spreader”, and there’s even talk about us having to wear respirators.

Meanwhile, Our Political Ruling Class is puzzled & frustrated as to why us “super spreader” peasants have no confidence in the media, our government and it’s institutions, especially when they go out of their way to concoct propaganda public service videos like Covid Boy.

Grand Moff Cuomo of the Empire State Resigned

(Image by Steve Kelley)

 Yesterday, Grand Moff Cuomo of "The Empire State" resigned.

Good freaking riddance.

I'm from Upstate NY, and while I've casually followed Cuomo's shenanigans, I haven't blogged too much about it because I've been so disgusted he's been allowed to cling to political life-support for so long.

Cuomo should have been impeached--and jailed--over the Covid Nursing Home Scandal, which got uglier when it was discovered aides rewrote the report to hide the higher number of nursing home deaths.

Instead, he was given an Emmy Award for showing up on camera.

Just like everything else that erupted in 2020, everyone from the Dimtard politicians, to the libtard street activists, had one, and only one goal:  

To prevent Trump from winning the Presidential Election.

And of course, the Ministry of Truth, especially CNN with the governor's brother "Fredo," deflected serious criticism.

(Image by A.F. Branco)

The political dragnet did manage to snare Fredo as CNN is under fire.  

Nor is anyone fooled by NY Dimtards letting loose on Cuomo, especially considering his sexcapades were an open secret for 11 years.

Since Zhou Bai Den was declared the winner, it's now safe to throw the Cuomo Bros under the Dimtard 2022 Campaign Bus.

Some might say, "better late than never."

Yeah, right.  Tell that to the nursing home victims' next-of-kin and the women he harassed.

Biden Bends the Constitution Against Landlords

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Last week, Zhou Bai Den via the CDC issued a new eviction moratorium after the federal ban lapsed.

In Sean Reynolds' latest Summit Properties NW video asked:  Since when does the CDC have the authority to ban anything?

While the Harris-Biden Administration plays Marxist games...

(Image by Steve Kelley)

...the eviction's moratorium 2.0 squeezes small-time landlords.

Crooked Joe even admitted he's just "...buying keep this going..." in order to keep bucking the Supreme Court's July 31st deadline.

In a sane world, China Joe's actions would ignite a firestorm for his impeachment.

But we live in Clownworld.

I chose this topic because, pardon the pun, it hits home with me.

Up until March I rented-out a house I bought back in 2011 after my divorce from my second ex-wife.  In the spring of 2013, I remarried, moved out, hired a property management company, and began renting my house that fall.

In 2015, the property management company was under new ownership and my third tenant moved in.  She was an elderly woman and was receiving funds from Washington State's Section 8 Housing Program for low income & disabled renters.

When I signed my initial landlord contract, I specifically stated I did not want any Section 8 renters.  However, the elderly woman was a friend of the new owner--and she didn't review any of the contracts of her newly acquired business.

Receiving monthly rental checks was nice, but my anxiety increased with each passing year.  The tenant had custody of her grand kids and great grand kids.  Her kids had a sketchy reputation and I'd often see a few never-do-wells hanging out at the house.  Meanwhile, the property manager was getting flakier and flakier, making it harder to schedule any routine maintenance.  (The office assistant confided in me that she was worried her boss had fallen off the wagon).  

Then my rental checks started arriving in an erratic manner, and one month I didn't receive a check at all.  The property manager was "at a loss" as to why I didn't receive that payment. 

But having a tenant under Section 8 turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  While other landlords were hung out to dry, I was still receiving rent money via the county government.

Two weeks after the 2020 Election, my tenant called me directly to ask if I'd talked to the property manager.  Apparently she was withholding my tenant's security deposit, and ducking her phone calls because my tenant moved out.

My wife and I acted fast.  My wife called a realtor she knew, a young lady that grew up next door to my wife.  Two days later I met with my realtor, and signed the contract.  Within a week the interior was repainted, damaged appliances and carpeting were replaced.  A week later the house was put on the marked and I had a buyer within a few days.

Then things slowed to "glacial speed," and I was anxious to get the deal closed before Inauguration Day.

First, my perspective buyer got laid off, which halted the home loan application until she could prove she had 30 days of continuous work experience.  

This delayed the sale until mid-January, but shortly after Biden was sworn in--interest rates went up, so the buyer had to renegotiate her home loan and asked if I'd give her a $3000 credit to the closing costs.

She had to move out of her apartment by 1 February, so my realtor suggested to have the buyer and her husband move-in and rent my house on a week-by-week basis until the deal was closed.

By mid-March my rental house was officially sold.

Talk about dodging the bullet.

I'm so happy to be out of the Landlord Business with only one missed monthly check.

I was afraid I'd end up like this guy:

Even though there are alternatives landlords can pursue they all sound like bureaucratic hassles to me.

Best wishes to all you landlords out there, you have my sympathy.

Mask Mandate 2.0

(Image by Margolis & Cox)

This past Friday, the DC Swamp reimposed mask mandates even for those vaccinated against the Kung Flu.

Kung Flu Fauci “respectfully disagrees” that masks are “a choice.”.

Well being “respectful” doesn’t help American citizens cope with Mask Mandate 2.0.

So does this mean Zhou Bai Den lied about the possibility of locking-down America for a second time?

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Because Fauci and the CDC (as in Center for Doubt and Confusion) have been so confused or outright lied to us clear and transparent with their proclamations… 

(Image by Bob Gorrell)

GOP members demanded data from a CDC “sowing doubt and confusion” on mask mandates

Shortly after the DC Swamp masked-up, the governor of “the other Washington” imposed his own mask-up mandate.

Basically, it’s Masks Forever and woketards claiming a right to “not to get sick.”

Welcome to Covidistan.

I like Senator “Nick Fury’s” advice to American citizens on the mask mandates (ignore it).

Particularly since there’s at least one report of COVID-positive illegal aliens were released by US Border Patrol into La Joya, TX.

What’s more, is the infected illegals were put up in hotels without informing local authorities

Most of us like-minded folks think this is the tip of the Kung-Flu Infected Iceburg.

Of course, when this was called-out by FOX News, (and no other major network), the White House’s Second-String Press Secretary 

dodged the question of why vaccinated Americans still have to wear masks.

(Image by A.F. Branco)

Why indeed?

Especially in light of the latest news from one disease expert:  Most masks don’t work against the Wuhan Flu

Meanwhile, Big Brother Tech certainly didn’t let a “good crisis go to waste.”  YouTube suspended SkyNews Australia for the propagating “misinformation.”

But we know the real reason for Forever Mask Mandates and censorship:  

To maintain power & control over us.
