9 months into office, and Biden's conduct has resulted in tremendous disasters

Here's more assessment of the damages US fraud-in-chief Joe Biden's led to within just 9 months of his presidency:
As the Associated Press documented, in one single hour on Friday afternoon, Biden and his team failed spectacularly on Afghanistan, ate crow on their next attempted COVID-19 milestone, and ticked off the United States’ longest ally.

For starters, the Pentagon revealed that the Kabul drone strike that Biden authorized in late August after the failed Afghanistan withdrawal not only wasn’t successful in taking out terrorists but instead killed 10 innocent civilians, including seven children. This is the airstrike that Gen. Mark Milley, who is under fire for making potentially treasonous phone calls to his communist Chinese counterpart, originally called “righteous.” It’s the drone strike that the administration falsely claimed had killed two “high-profile” terrorists.

But that wasn’t true. “The strike was a tragic mistake,” Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, admitted during a Friday news conference. [...]

Finally, an angry France, a country that’s been a U.S. ally since 1778, announced it was pulling its ambassador to the United States after some submarine deal that Biden struck with Australia and the United Kingdom. According to the French foreign ministry, it’s never recalled its ambassador to the U.S. until now.
All these are disturbing examples of how the US is crumbling under the sad weight of political correctness and Orwellianism, and it goes without saying it's only bound to get worse by the time the year is over.

Ohio Republican files impeachment motion against Biden

There's thankfully a Republican who's doing paperwork now for at least trying to impeach the most disastrous "president" the US has ever had (via American Lookout):
House Republicans, led by Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, have filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, citing the border crisis, chaotic and deadly Afghanistan withdrawal, and attempted to break constitutional law on extending the eviction ban.

Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Brian Babin, R-Texas, and Randy Weber, R-Texas, signed on to the three-pronged complaint — even if the Democrat-controlled House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are sure to ignore it, Gibbs told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.

And despite Democrats holding only a slim majorities in the House and the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris can cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

"Obviously, it's not going to go anywhere with Speaker Pelosi," Gibbs told the Examiner, adding, but "it shows that there are some Republicans that think that this president needs to be impeached, he needs to be removed from office one way or another.

"At some point, they're going to be held accountable for their actions, and this is kind of putting them on notice."

Gibbs recognized the lack of interest among Democrats in holding Biden accountable, but the three articles of impeachment are intended to serve notice to the White House of its missteps under Biden.
That the Democrats are unlikely to support impeachment just shows how far they've fallen, to the depths of dictatorship, a tragedy that was bound to happen someday, due to all the complacency and inability to prevent the US education system from falling victim to communism.

Anti-Israel "progressives" in Democrat party lead to omission of Iron Dome funding

This terrible news appears to be the fault of awful people like Ilhan Omar:
American Jewish groups on Tuesday condemned the removal of a $1 billion allocation for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a US budget bill.

The move came at the urging of progressives in Congress. The funds are widely expected to be approved, but at a later date. A Congressional aide, speaking to The Times of Israel on condition of anonymity, insisted that the Iron Dome funding would eventually be approved, but instead would be attached to the 2022 Defense Appropriations Bill.

The measure nonetheless drew fierce criticism from some pro-Israel activists and from Republicans.

“Extremists in Congress are playing politics with Israeli & Palestinian lives. Calling to remove funding for a lifesaving defensive system is an affront to our values, risks further conflict, and is counter to the commitment made by Biden & supported by Congressional leadership,” said the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in a statement.

“It’s simple: Iron Dome saves lives. Blocking funding for Iron Dome helps terrorists kill civilians,” it added.

The Republican Jewish Coalition also condemned the move.

“House Democrats should be ashamed of themselves. By cowardly caving to the Israel-hating wing of their party and blocking vital assistance to support our ally Israel, House Democrats have emboldened the likes of Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to continue dragging their party even further to the radical Left,” said RJC National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman, calling it “disgraceful.”

[...] A Congress member told The Times of Israel that Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Betty McCollum pushed Pelosi to have the Iron Dome funding removed from the spending bill and managed to succeed through mediation from Congresswoman Rosa Delauro.

Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Pramila Jayapal also threatened to vote against the bill if the Iron Dome funding was included
, a Congressional aid said.
Yes, these are the scum Pelosi's succumbed to, and that's atrocious. They may say this is only temporary, but it could've been avoided, and that Pelosi for one would enable this to happen is offensive. The Democrats consider the votes of the enemies far more important in every way than the allies.

Durban's anti-Israelists enlist the aid of Neturei Karta

Robert Kraychik and Joel Pollak tell how the organizers of the anti-Israeli conference in Durban, Africa have sought the aid of some of the worst enemies of Israel from within, the Haredi Neturei Karta clan:
“The narrative coming out of Durban was intended to be entirely that Israel was the new apartheid state,” Pollak stated. “But worse than that, that Jews — through their sentimental attachments to Israel — were aiding and abetting apartheid. There was an effort by Islamist organizations [to] describe Israel as being offensive to Jews. To that end, they enlisted the help of Neturei Karta, which is a fringe organization of ultra-orthodox Jews who reject the existence of the state of Israel.”

Neturei Karta members, who oppose the existence of a Jewish state on religious and theological ground, were used as political props by Islamist groups attending the Durban conference to characterize Israel as violative of Judaism. Inclusion in Neturei Karta in anti-Israel demonstrations was used as a shield against identification of antisemitism as integral to the demonstrators’ ideology.

He continued, “They sent three or four guys who dressed in black coats and black hats — which are recognized by the outside world as sort of stereotypical Jewish garb — I’m an observant Jew [and] I don’t dress like that, there are other Jews who do it, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything about your political views — but they brought these Jews in to attack and demonize Israel.”

They made sure that [Neturei Karta] guys were in front of every anti-Israel demonstration,” he remembered. “The international media loved it. They photographed these stereotypical Jewish characters in front of signs saying things like, ‘Real Jews reject Israel,’ and that became part of the narrative.”
It's repellent, but far from shocking coming from an Israeli perspective, or anybody knowledgable of this, that the Karta kreeps would be embraced full force by antisemites. Even today, the Satmar clan they grew out of can be just as awful. You can be sure they'll continue to lend their horrific services to any and all anti-Israel movements, Islamic and otherwise, in the near future (including, undoubtably, secular leftists in Israel itself), and the indoctrination they've performed on their subjects is a tragedy of the modern era.

Mike Lindell will bring election fraud case before SCOTUS this autumn

The chairman of MyPillow is tackling the scandalous case of election fraud that occurred last year, robbing Donald Trump of a rightful victory:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed plans to take his election fraud case to the Supreme Court before Thanksgiving which will mark roughly one year since the 2020 presidential election.

Lindell announced during Steve Bannon’s War Room on Tuesday that he will ensure the nation’s highest court reviews his election fraud case which seeks to challenge Joe Biden’s tenure in office.
It's high time this scandal was brought to court, with the only problem being, will SCOTUS actually accept it, and rule in favor by the end? Unfortunately, if recent examples were any indication, the chances are slim, and Amy Coney Barrett certainly didn't do anything to assume she'll prove helpful. This is sadly bound to be an uphill battle.

Haredis clash with police over badly structured sukkah

There may not have been as many Haredi riots lately, taking away attention from more pressing issues like Islamofascism (which is enough to make one wonder if it was all due to agent provocateurs governing the ultra-Orthodox sects). But here's something where atrocious, insular clans clashed with authorities, enforcing the image they don't care about safety:
Police forces clashed with hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox rioters in Jerusalem, who tried to resist the municipality-ordered destruction of a dangerously built Sukkah, a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot - in one of the city’s Haredi neighborhoods.

The clashes began early Sunday, after some 200 police officers entered Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim and Beit Israel neighborhoods in order to protect the municipal officials who came to dismantle a Sukkah built on scaffolding 12 meters high on Beit Israel’s Sonnefeld street.

Upon the forces’ arrival, they encountered streets blocked by trash bins that were set on fire, dozens of protesters huddled inside and around the dangerous construct, as well as hundreds of rioters who proceeded to throw stones and garbage bags at the officers.

[...] Police said they assisted the Jerusalem municipality, "in accordance with the law and subject to a court decision, and due to the danger to human life and public safety [that the Sukkah posed].”

“The Sukkah was built at a height on scaffolding and poses a real risk to life and property, disrupts movement on the road below, and endangers the public who come to the medical center on the site,” the police added.
It's just simply sad how these misguided clan members resort to tribalist, sectarian riots, all for the sake of something that's usually dismantled after the holiday's over anyway.

All 6 escapees from Gilboa have been recaptured

The first 4 convicted terrorists were rearrested last week, and now, the last 2 have been recaptured as well:
The last two remaining prisoners who escaped from Gilboa Prison earlier this month, Munadil Nafayat and Iham Kahamji, were arrested on Saturday night by Israeli forces in Jenin, putting an end to a nearly two-week-long manhunt.

The arrest was made by the IDF, Shin Bet and police special forces based on intelligence from the Shin Bet. Israeli forces surrounded the house where the prisoners were hiding and the two prisoners surrendered without any struggle and were transferred to the Shin Bet for questioning. Two Palestinians who helped the two prisoners were also arrested by Israeli forces.

[...] Four of the six prisoners who escaped from Gilboa Prison, Zakaria Zubeidi, Mahmoud Ardah, Mohammed Qadri and Mohammed Ardah, were captured by security forces in and near Nazareth last weekend.
It's still unclear how this was able to occur so easily in the past 2 weeks. It's very fortunate for now that the convicted terrorists were recaptured before any potential violence and other disasters could've occurred. But this is still a terrible stain on the country's security, and for now, it certainly doesn't reflect well on Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid's farcical government.

Update: here's an op-ed making a point that this affair's not over:
The escape by the six men exposed a series of failures at the prison, including that the IPS didn’t learn lessons from a previous escape attempt at the prison, as well as several other major issues. These include sleeping guards, unmanned watchtowers due to a shortage of staff and the sense of boldness security prisoners feel vis-à-vis the guards.

The sense of boldness by security prisoners is a major issue that was already examined in a 2018 special committee report. “In the security cell blocks, terrorist organizations have de facto autonomy,” the report found.

Four years later, nothing has changed.

Public Security Minister Omer Bar Lev has said there will be a commission of inquiry into the escape, the worst jailbreak in Israel’s history. But it can’t be like the one in 2018 or the tragedy at Mount Meron this past April, when 45 worshipers were trampled to death, and the state commission of inquiry only called its first witness a month ago.

The inquiry into the Gilboa Prison break has to dig through all the dirt, not with a spoon but a Caterpillar D9 armored bulldozer, and bulldoze through all the other issues that have yet to see the light. It also needs to be as free as it can from political pressure because the security of the country is at stake.

Along with a commission investigating how the prisoners escaped, the Defense Ministry, IDF and Israel Police need to fix the holes in the West Bank fence. It cannot be that people, let alone high-security fugitives, are able to cross in and out of Israel through the numerous holes in the fence.
Absolutely valid issues there. But something tells me even an inquiry here could evaporate soon enough.

What Trump has to say about the Afghanistan disaster, and some RINOs

The Federalist did an exclusive interview with Donald Trump, who had a lot to say about both Biden's botches and RINOs:
“Afghanistan is one of the worst things I think I’ve ever seen for our country,” Trump said. “To lose the young people [killed in the bomb blast] is so horrible. It’s a horrible situation.”

“What Biden is doing is grossly incompetent,” he added. “It’s a disgrace.”

The 45th president also teed off on former President George W. Bush, who used his remarks on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on America to take a thinly veiled swipe at Trump and many of Trump’s supporters when Bush claimed they were “children of the same foul spirit” that led the 9/11 hijackers to kill thousands of innocent American citizens.

“Bush was a disaster getting us into the Middle East. He’s the one that got us into the quicksand of the Middle East, and he didn’t win. He didn’t know how to win. I think he goes down as one of the worst presidents in history,” Trump said.

“Bush now goes around lecturing everybody about all sorts of things, and he shouldn’t be lecturing anybody, because he’s the one who got us into the mess of the Middle East,” Trump continued. “In the 20 years since, it’s been obliterated, and it’s probably in worse shape now than it’s ever been because of him.”
As noted earlier, I'd heard it mentioned on a Steve Bannon podcast that Bush has now made himself into one of the most reviled figures of US politics, right down there along with Biden, and the failure to have ever combatted Pakistan and Iran's regime back in the day is just one more serious error that was made, despite any suggestions to the contrary. Trump also took issue with senator Mitch McConnell, another would-be conservative who's not doing anything to mend the continuing damage, and the way current Republicans are working is simply uninspiring. This is exactly what's bringing about more disasters down the road.

Update: in related news, Bush is also part of a George Soros-funded organization, along with Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, that's been pushing for Afghan migrants to be welcomed into the USA regardless of their personality.

Update 2: Biden and company caused more terrible division by getting Australia to drop a contract with France to build submarines. That too is one of the most awful mistakes they're making.

The Taliban is using the Afghanistan retreat to validate the Koran

Raymond Ibrahim reports how, following the US army's defeatist retreat from Afghanistan, there's Taliban-supporting sheiks who're using this terrible moment in history to justify the Koran's themes:
While it should be a no-brainer that the Taliban's victory in Afghanistan has emboldened like-minded (read: "radical") Muslims to no end, few in the West appreciate how this episode — especially America's disastrous retreat — is being used to validate the Koran itself, and thus Muslim zeal and faith in Islam.

Beginning around August 15, 2021, when the Taliban reconquered Afghanistan, every time I watched an Arabic-language program or sheikh speak, they cited several Koran verses as "proof" that it was only inevitable — only a matter of time — that the U.S. would be humiliated and the Taliban exalted.
These include the following verses:
O believers! Be mindful of Allah and seek what brings you closer to him and perform jihad in his way, so you may be successful (5:35).

O believers! March forth [into battle] whether it is easy or difficult for you, and perform jihad with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if only you knew (9:41).
That's just some of what they're going by, and it's utterly horrific. As Ibrahim notes:
At any rate, the takeaway lesson from Afghanistan for millions of Muslims the world over is that perseverance in jihad and patience pays off — just as the Koran says it will. Put differently, the roles of both the Taliban and the U.S. have now confirmed for Muslims the truths of the Koran — specifically, that perseverance in the jihad always leads to victory over and leaves infidels broken, even if it takes years and decades.
And that's because of the west's refusal to deal with the issues seriously, and recognize why such adherence to Islam can't be allowed. One more reason why this is such a horrible moment in history.

Tone-deaf chief rabbi closes women's mikvehs on eve of Yom Kippur

Somebody doesn't seem particularly interested in forgiveness for Yom Kippur, it would seem:
Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Jerusalem's Chief Rabbi, has ordered all of the women's mikvahs (ritual baths) closed on Wednesday.

The order means that women who wish to immerse on Wednesday will be unable to do so. Men's mikvahs will remain open.

Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) begins Wednesday evening, and lasts until Thursday after nightfall.

Rabbi Amar explained: "Even though there are rabbis who ruled in favor of this, and there are many who oppose them, during this time when all of the boundaries have been breached and forbidden acts have become as permissible, and immodesty has spread, and even courts of law and governments allow and aid the force of obstacles, this should be forbidden."
When somebody starts blaming "immodesty", you know something's wrong. People who make petty issues like those are despicable.
The ITIM organization slammed Rabbi Amar's decision, saying, "The decision was made on the spur of the moment, at the last second, without allowing women to fulfill the custom of their communities and their homes for hundreds of years. We have urgently requested that this evil decree be canceled. This is illegal interference in the customs women have kept for generations upon generations."

"Discrimination against women and closing their mikvahs, while men's mikvahs remain open today, is improper discrimination and severely harms religious freedom," the organization added, noting its urgent request to the Religious Affairs Ministry asking that they reopen Jerusalem's women's mikvahs immediately.

Former MK Rachel Azaria responded: "I hear the cries of my friends, who have the custom to immerse on Yom Kippur eve. Their grandmothers immersed - this year, the chief rabbi is preventing it by force, by locking the mikvahs (the public ones, paid for by taxes) for women. Why? Something baseless connected to immodesty. The rabbi will go to immerse, as will the members of the religious councils. I hear my friends crying. Their immersions are as those who hold impure insects in their hands while they immerse."
And he's no doubt doing it to cast a terrible, embarrassing image for Judaism, Orthodox or otherwise. This is exactly why the religious affairs ministry would be better off getting dissolved.

Malka Leifer's trial begins in Australia

The Haredi child rapist who evaded justice through her organized community here in Israel before finally being extradited back Down Under earier this year is now facing the court of Melbourne:
The trial of Malka Leifer opened in the Melbourne court on Monday morning, with the former principal being accused of 74 counts of child sexual abuse and rape.
Also important to note:
In May, it was announced that former Housing Minister Ya'acov Litzman will be prosecuted for allegedly pressuring the Jerusalem district psychiatrist to falsely rule Leifer mentally unfit for trial.
He deserves it. People like him have practically embarrassed the Judaist community as a whole by taking illegal actions, though some could argue that the previous government made a terrible mistake by not acting firmly enough to deal with creeps like Litzman.

So far, it looks like the 2 of the 3 sisters who were all victims of Leifer and practically the whole community have testified against her, with the third soon to do the same. And when all's completed, let's hope Leifer will get a very long prison sentence.
