THIRTEEN OF OUR HEROEShave been murdered by an illegal incompetent president. He did not protect America’s men and women, lettingthem be blown up by blood thirsty savages. During the receiving ceremony that took place on hallowed ground Biden looked at his watch, wondering if it was time to take a sleeping pill. Our troops, saw the Commander and Chief, who actually despises them, watched in horror as their comrades were blown to smithereens.Not one Democrat shed a tear.
So we present this case to the members of our ARMED FORCES, turn you back on Biden like he turned it on you, give up your tour, your service, your rank and form a NEW ARMED FORCES UNDER CONTROL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP. The real president. This will be a smooth transition. Trump will take the oath, given to him by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Biden will be court martialed, Lock Her Up will be arrested and tried for murder and John Kerry will be executed for spying for the enemy. Laws will be enforced, chaos will be subdued and ANTIFA types will be jailed. America will be great again.
We have never seen anything like this fiasco in our 245 year history. Biden and his incompetents retreated from engagement when the GOING GETS TOUGH – putting our soldiers in jeopardy by signaling to the enemy the time of our planned withdrawal. The Taliban cohorts – ISIS got the go-ahead to strike and they did with with vigor. The suicide bomb attack in Kabul saw 13 Americans die on the battlefield.
This is not the time for politics, this is the TIME FOR IMPEACHMENT. Biden is UNFIT TO HOLD THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND. Those Democrats that don’t vote to impeach him, are themselves guilty accomplices. Higher-ups in the defense department need to have their heads rolled. They were not prepared for the calamity at hand.
U.S. military vacates main Bagram air base in Afghanistan in the middle of the night. Because of the closure Biden was not able to fly Americans out of Afghanistan before the attack. The Taliban took over the base which consisted of Black Hawks and RPG’s.
Lindsey Graham calls for IMPEACHMENT.
Lindsey Graham repeats impeachment call for former friend Joe Biden
Republican accuses president of ignoring advice on Afghanistan
Biden rebuffed Graham in call explaining Trump support
Lindsey Graham has repeated his call for Joe Biden to be impeached over the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, saying the president “ignored sound advice” and has “been this way for 40 years”.
The Republican senator from South Carolina was close to Biden when Biden was a senator, a relationship which remained strong when the man from Delaware became vice-president to Barack Obama.
Only six years ago, in 2015, Graham told the Huffington Post: “If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person, then you got a problem. You need to do some self-evaluation. ’Cause what’s not to like?”
Calling for US forces to remain in the country, to tackle terrorists who killed 13 US troops and as many as 170 Afghans this week, he said: “You cannot break [Islamic State’s] will through drone attacks. You’ve got to have people on the ground hitting these people day in and day out. You can’t do it over the horizon.
“[Biden] deserves a lot of accountability for this. And I’m sure it will be coming.”
Graham is not the only Republican to call for Biden to resign or be impeached but as Democrats hold both houses of Congress the idea is a total non-starter. Attacks on Biden are more focused on seeking to inflict lasting damage before midterm elections next year.
Regardless, Graham told CBS he still thinks Congress should make Biden the fourth president it has tried to remove, after Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Trump.
“I think it’s dereliction of duty to leave hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines, turn them into hostages, to abandon thousands of Afghans who fought honourably along our side, to create conditions for another 9/11 that are now through the roof,” said Graham.
As a senator, Graham was a juror in Trump’s two impeachment trials. He voted against convicting him for seeking dirt on Biden in Ukraine and inciting the deadly Capitol riot.
“Yeah, I think [Biden’s] been derelict in his duties as commander-in-chief,” Graham told CBS. “I don’t think he got bad advice and took it. I think he ignored sound advice.
“And this is Joe Biden being Joe Biden. He’s been this way for 40 years, but now he’s the commander-in-chief. He’s not a senator. He’s not the vice-president. These are commander-in-chief decisions. I think the best you could describe is dereliction of duty at the highest level.”
Rather than challenge Graham about his many changes of heart about Biden, host Ed O’Keefe ended the interview by calling the senator “an erstwhile friend of the president” who “obviously disagrees with him on this”.
After Graham’s call to Biden was reported, Biden told Stephen Colbert: “Lindsey’s been a personal disappointment, because I was a personal friend of his.”
U.S. Supreme Court says Biden administration must comply with ruling to restart “remain in Mexico” program for asylum-seekers
The “remain in Mexico” policy known as Migrant Protection Protocols requires many asylum-seekers to wait outside the United States for their cases to be decided.
BY ROBERT BARNES, THE WASHINGTON POST AUG. 24, 20217 PM CENTRAL

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the Biden administration must comply with a lower court’s ruling to reinstate President Donald Trump’s policy that required many asylum-seekers to wait outside the United States for their cases to be decided.
The administration had asked the court to put on hold a federal judge’s order that the “remain in Mexico” policy known as Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) had to be immediately reimplemented. U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ruled earlier this month that the Biden administration did not provide an adequate reason for getting rid of the policy, and that its procedures regarding asylum-seekers who enter the country were unlawful.
The Supreme Court Will Allow Evictions To Resume. It Could Affect Millions Of Tenants
The unsigned decision from the court was 6-3, with the court’s three liberal justices dissenting.
The court’s majority said the CDC exceeded its authority with the temporary ban.
The majority opinion says that the CDC for its order relied on “a decades-old statute that authorizes it to implement measures like fumigation and pest extermination.”
“It strains credulity to believe that this statute grants the CDC the sweeping authority that it asserts,” the majority writes, adding: “If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it.”
In 2009, Thompson was accused of indecently exposing himself to a woman and to two children, though no charges were filed. On July 21, 2021, a Hennepin County jury convicted Thompson for misdemeanor obstruction pertaining to a 2019 disturbance incident at North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. He was given a 30-day stayed sentence to avoid jail time if he did not commit another offense and was also ordered to pay a $200 fine and $78 fee.
In July 2021, a Saint Paul Police Department sergeant conducted a traffic stop of Thompson’s vehicle for the lack of a front license plate. After presenting a Wisconsin state identification card, he was also cited for driving with a suspended license. Thompson later stated that he was racially profiled and “got a ticket for driving while black”. The traffic stop incident raised questions about Thompson’s residency—whether he was a resident of the Minnesota or Wisconsin. Prior to the traffic stop, Thompson had said that he had resided in Saint Paul, Minnesota, for 18 years.
In the aftermath of the traffic stop incident, news media reported that three different police departments had investigated a total of five domestic assault cases from 2003 to 2011 allegedly committed by Thompson. Several state officials subsequently called on Thompson to resign from the legislature, including Governor Walz, Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan, House Speaker Melissa Hortman, House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, and Democratic-Famer-Labor Party Chair Ken Martin. Thompson denied he had committed assault and said he did not intend to resign.
Dem Candidate Threatens To Burn Down Hugo, MN at BLM Protest: “You Think We Give A Fuck?”
ALPHA NEWS: Footage of Saturday’s protest in Hugo, Minnesota captured by Alpha News shows DFL legislative candidate John Thompson beating effigies of Bob Kroll and his wife on their front driveway.
Hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside Kroll’s home Saturday to protest his support for the officers involved in the death of George Floyd, whom he believes were fired without due process.
Kroll leads the Minneapolis police union and is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, while his wife, Liz Collin, is an anchor for WCCO. Activists have called for both Kroll and Collin to be fired from their jobs.
Palestinian leaders and their western supporters on the political Left are now re-interpreting biblical history amid a wider expansion of woke activism in the Middle East, critics say. The Palestinian Authority (PA), emboldened by some in Europe and United Nations bodies, are looking to dismantle Judeo-Christian ties to the Holy Land as they seek to invent a new narrative favoring their claims on the region, opponents of the campaign argue.
“The PA’s erasure of Jewish history combined with the inventing of a Palestinian history is used by the PA to define Israelis as ‘Zionist thieves,’ ‘usurpers,’ ‘foreigners,’ ‘invaders,’ ‘colonialists,’ in short people with no connection to the land who therefore must be defeated and expelled,” Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli-based organization researching Palestinian society, told Fox News.
Marcus points to the many historically inaccurate statements made by senior PA officials, including President Mahmoud Abbas, who in a 2016 claimed during a televised speech on Palestinian TV that, “our narrative says that we were in this land since before Abraham. I am not saying it. The Bible says it. The Bible says, in these words, that the Palestinians existed before Abraham. So why don’t you recognize my right?”
A series of questions sent to Abbas’ spokesman and the Palestinian Mission to the U.N. were not returned for comment.
Jerusalem has and continues to be the main flashpoint in the fight to erase history. Senior Palestinian leaders summarily dismiss Judaism’s holiest site, The Temple Mount, as an “alleged Temple.” Ze’ev Orenstein, director of International Affairs for the City of David, an archeological site for ancient Jerusalem, told Fox News, “There is no place in the world which holds more significance for more people than Jerusalem. Yet, today, both the U.N. and Palestinian leadership are seeking to erase the Jewish and Christian heritage of Jerusalem.”
“Every single day, archaeological excavations in the City of David – the place where Jerusalem began…are affirming not simply as a matter of faith, but as a matter of fact, the millennia-old connection of Jews and Christians to Jerusalem,” Orenstein added. “This includes the discovery of millennia-old inscriptions affirming biblical events; ancient seals with the names – in Hebrew – of figures straight out of the pages of the Bible, including that of the biblical King Hezekiah – direct descendant of King David from 2,700 years ago.”
Orenstein says that by visiting the City of David, people can witness this history “with their own eyes, touch with their own hands, and walk upon with their own feet.”
Yet, while the erasure campaign is especially charged around Jerusalem, Regavim, an Israeli nongovernmental organization, warns that the cradle of Jewish history has been under constant attack for years.
“The Palestinian Authority has undertaken a very carefully and purposefully orchestrated program of historical revisionism, in an attempt to blur and eventually erase the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel,” Naomi Kahn, Regavim’s international spokesperson, told Fox News. “Because Judea and Samaria are the cradle of Jewish history, these areas are quite naturally the focal points of this insidious campaign.”
She said, “The Palestinian Authority and its supporters have proven willing, even eager, to destroy the physical remains of thousands of years of Judeo-Christian culture in an attempt to make way for a fictitious quasi-historical narrative that supports their political agenda.”
Kahn said the Oslo Accord made it clear that the Palestinian Authority had to protect sites of Judeo-Christian significance and that the PA “was required to protect and enable free access – for worship, study, tourism and scientific exploration.” The “PA has completely disregarded these requirements,” she said.
Kahn gave these examples:

Sebastia is the name the Romans gave to Samaria and the capital city of the Northern Israelite Kingdom founded in the 9th century B.C. It is now an official Palestinian tourism site, but Regavim claims that visitors will hear no mention of its Jewish connection, including its being an independent Jewish kingdom of which Samaria was the seat of government.
In the same area, Regavim said there once stood a Byzantine structure purporting to be the burial place of St. John the Baptist’s head, but added that the structure has been destroyed and defaced. It now lies in ruins. Regavim says other cathedrals that were turned into mosques in Sebastia have been reinterpreted in PA tourism guides. Regavim said it had identified over 300 such sites “that have been looted, damaged or totally decimated or are in the process of being wiped out.”
From a letter to the Editor of the Wall Street Journal published December 30, 2017.
“If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy.” These words in Psalm 137: 5-6 written long before the birth of Muhammad, attest to the reality that Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for millennia. I did not vote for President Trump, but I applauded his willingness to put his money where past presidents have only put their mouths in relations to Jerusalem.

Below is an article from Mitchell Bard, written many years ago when Arafat and Sharon were still living.
Today, the Palestinians could be enjoying their 54th year of independence, or their 52nd, or their 19th, or their 3rd or the eve of their 2nd. That’s right, by my count they have had at least five opportunities to have a state beside Israel if that was their real objective, but they have chosen to hold out for a Palestinian state instead of Israel. Even today, under that “hardline, right-wing” Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the opportunity for emancipation exists, but the Palestinians stubbornly cling to their dreams of a Palestinians state replacing Israel rather than accepting the offer to establish a state beside Israel.
The first chance for statehood was in 1947 when the UN actually created an Arab state in Palestine. It was not perfect, it was not what they wanted, but it was a state. The Zionists accepted partition even though it was a truly rotten deal for them too. Think about it. Like the Arabs, the Jews believed they were entitled to all of Palestine, and not just what was then called Palestine, but the 80% of what had been Palestine that the British lopped off and turned into Transjordan. True, the UN gave the Jews more land, but most of it was the Negev desert. The borders were indefensible, and Jerusalem was not only excluded from the Jewish state, it was to be internationalized and surrounded by the Arab state.
So why did the Jews accept such a lousy deal?
David Ben-Gurion and the other Zionist leaders recognized it was the best deal they would get. They also understood that the international community was offering legal recognition for the establishment of a Jewish state. And most important, they would now have an independent state that could be a haven to Jews from around the world, and they could build it into something greater.
Most Palestinian Arabs, on the other hand, believed Palestine really was just southern Syria. They were convinced by their Arab brethren that they had no need to compromise because the Jews would be driven into the sea and they would have the entire country. The whole refugee issue is proof that most Palestinian Arabs were not even prepared to fight for their independence; they chose to flee instead. And so their chance for statehood was squandered.
The Palestinians actually had 19 years to demand statehood during the Jordanian occupation from 1948-1967. Jordan annexed the West Bank in 1950 rather than grant the Palestinians independence. What is remarkable is that there were no Hanan Ashrawis demanding the end to Jordanian occupation and the creation of a Palestinian state for all those years. Ask a Palestinian today about that and you’ll hear a lot of hemming and hawing. They only discovered a passion for independence after Israel captured the territories in 1967.
The third opportunity for statehood was presented by yet another “fanatical, right-wing” Prime Minister, Menachem Begin. In fact, when the Palestinian state comes into being, as it inevitably will some day, Begin should be regarded as its true founder. Begin was the first one to offer the Palestinians control over their own affairs. Yes, the autonomy plan that came out of the Israeli-Egyptian peace negotiations was limited, and did not offer immediate statehood, but there is no question that once the Palestinians began to control their own affairs, it would be impossible for Israel to stop them from ultimately becoming totally free of Israeli control. From about 1983 on, it was no longer a question of if there would be a Palestinian state, but when. Had the Palestinians accepted Begin’s offer, however, they would have had their state long ago.
The Oslo agreements were specifically geared toward an Israeli withdrawal from the territories and the creation of a Palestinian state. According to the timetable, the last remaining issues should have been resolved by 1999, but the Palestinians never lived up to the commitments they made, starting with the recognition of Israel and renouncement of terrorism that Arafat declared in September 1993 that was the basis for the entire Oslo process. Had Arafat ended the violence and complied with his treaty commitments, the Palestinians would be completely under Arafat’s control today (as it is 98% of the Palestinian people are under his autocratic control).
Finally, the Palestinians were offered a state by Ehud Barak in the negotiations at Camp David and the White House in 2000. Today, they could be living in a Palestine comprised of 95% of the West Bank, 100% of the Gaza Strip, and most of Arab east Jerusalem. They would have greater control of the Temple Mount and an unimpeded highway between Gaza and the West Bank. Instead, most of their cities are under curfew and surrounded by Israeli forces because Arafat rejected Barak’s offer and waged a war of terror in hopes of achieving his dream of liberating all of “Palestine.”
The best chance for the Palestinians to achieve statehood in the short-run would be to tell Ariel Sharon they are now prepared to end the violence, replace Arafat, and negotiate. They should offer to accept whatever deal Sharon offers even if it means a Palestinian state the size of a postage stamp. Why? For the same reason the Zionists accepted a state that was little more than a postage stamp.
Think about it. After agreeing to make peace with Israel, within a nanosecond of declaring statehood, the United States will recognize the new state. The rest of the world will follow suit. Within a few minutes, the Americans and Europeans will begin throwing so many dollar bills at the Palestinians that they’ll think that it’s a plague of locusts. If the Palestinians truly wish to live in peace, they can spend the next 50 years building their state, developing an economy, infrastructure, governmental institutions, and all the rest, and the world will cheer and do everything to help them. Israel will be first in line with assistance.
The great thing from the Palestinian perspective is that they don’t even have to give up their goal of destroying Israel. They just need to exercise some patience. As soon as they’re independent, they can have Karine-A’s docking nonstop at Gaza port bringing in tons of weapons. In 50 years, then, they may be strong enough to drive the Jews into the sea.
But Israel won’t allow this, you say. Even the far left in Israel has only been willing to allow the Palestinians a demilitarized state. This shows how naive they truly are. Once Palestine is independent, Israel cannot enforce this. Sure, Israel will do everything possible to prevent the large scale importation of weapons, and will interdict shipments of arms, and maybe have to conduct an Osirak type raid if necessary, but there will be a limit to what Israel can do. I still believe Israel can defend itself, because it will do whatever is necessary to insure its security, as will the Jordanians, by the way, who have just as much incentive as Israel to insure the Palestinian state is as small and weak as possible to insure the Palestinians don’t repeat their 1970 effort to take over their country.
President Bush has now offered the Palestinians a sixth opportunity for statehood. Will they finally abandon their dreams of liberating all of Palestine and choose the path of compromise rather than extremism? Will they devote their energy to building a state of their own rather than try to destroy the state of the Jews?
In a speech at the State Department on Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry cast the majority of the blame on the lack of Israeli-Palestinian peace on the Israelis, ignoring Israel’s history of repeatedly making risky overtures for peace with the Palestinians, only to receive terrorism in response. Israelis voted in Labor’s Ehud Barak to the premiership in 1999 specifically because he promised to make peace with the Palestinians; in 2000, he met with then-PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat at Camp David and offered the Palestinians 92% of the West Bank, all of the Gaza Strip, and eastern Jerusalem as its capital. Israel even proposed that a maximum of 100,000 refugees would be allowed to return to Israel on the basis of humanitarian considerations or family reunification, and an international fund would be created to compensate the Palestinians. Arafat rejected the offer. Sweetening the deal, the Clinton administration suggested that the Palestinians control 97% of the West Bank and the entirety of the Gaza Strip, with a land-link between the two, as well as a capital in East Jerusalem. Barak endorsed the Clinton Parameters; again, Arafat rejected them. After having rejected Israeli peace offers at Camp David with no counter-offers of his own, Arafat chose to launch the murderous Second Intifada, killing more than 1,500 Israelis between 2000 and 2005. In 2005, Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip, only for that territory to be taken over by Hamas in a Palestinian civil war in 2007. Ever since, Hamas has used the Strip as a base from which to launch attacks on Israelis, using rockets and underground tunnels, and Gazans live under the grip of Hamas’ authoritarian rule. In 2008, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas 93.7% of the West Bank; the remaining 6.3% would be made up with land swaps. He also offered to take in 5,000 refugees over five years; an international committee to oversee Jerusalem’s holy sites; and an international fund consisting of billions of dollars, administered by Norwegians, to compensate Palestinian refugees. In a May 2009 interview with The Washington Post, Abbas admitted that he had turned down the offer and said, “The gaps were wide.” The government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to an unprecedented 10-month freeze in settlement construction in November 2009 only for the Palestinians to say it was insufficient and then call for an extension when it expired. Netanyahu said he would do so if the Palestinian Authority recognized Israel as the Jewish state; the PA refused. When the Obama administration proposed a framework for a peace agreement in 2013, the Netanyahu government accepted it, while the Palestinians turned it down. Even still, Israel was willing to talk with the Palestinian Authority, until Fatah and Hamas announced a unity government in April 2014. Hamas refuses to reject violence and terror against Israel and Israel refuses to negotiate with it. The Palestinians adopted a policy of trying to skirt direct negotiations and internationalizing the conflict via the United Nations and other international fora.
Millions of people have fallen for the greatest lie of the twenty first century; it found its birth 50 years ago. The lie, “there are a Palestinian people.” History says otherwise. A country was never named Palestine. During the past 2000 years there were never a people called Palestinians. However, in 1967 Arabs who resided in Israel, the West Bank (Samaria and Judea) and Gaza began to call themselves Palestinians.
The name Palestine was a new name given to the country of Israel by Roman Emperor Hadrian. It was punishment for the Israeli revolt which started in 70AD and lasted until 135AD. The name has endured for the past 2000 years. So the question remains, where did all of those Palestinians of today come from?
To quote Mark Twain, who visited Israel in 1880? He described what he saw in three words, “Palestine is desolate.” The Holy Land was occupied by the Ottoman Turks in the 1800’s; they settled Turks in Palestine to farm and strip the forests for Turkish export. From 1840 to 1920 the Turks brought in 506,000 Arabs. In 1920 The British Mandate approved by the League of Nations in 1922 opened the floodgates to more foreigners. The British allowed 36,000 Syrians to enter the land in 1934. From 1924-1947 the British secretly brought in 440,000 Arabs from Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon and Iraq. During the Holocaust, the British smuggled in 200,000 more Arabs.
Of the 1,303,000 Arabs living in Palestine in 1947, 1 million were illegally brought in and the other 300,000 were born to those brought in after the Zionist movement in 1882 was born. The lie continues to this day. One question remains to be answered; why is the western media continuing the perpetration of this lie?

Biden is resettling upwards of 50,000 Afghans into the United States. See below, Biden doesn’t even know how many Americans are still in Afghanistan. Is he for real. And this guy Sullivan, another doofus. There is no vetting process here; even if there was, these Afghans hate us. Sure they worked AS SCOUTS and INTERPRETERS, but not because they liked us, they did it for the money. What will happen here, and we say quickly, they will be recruited by the likes of Tlaib (impeach the mother fucker) and Omar (see bleow). Both are suicide bombers in their own right.
ENGAGING WITH THE ENEMY. DO YOU BELIEVE THIS? The U.S. is in close coordination with the Taliban as it works to evacuate tens of thousands of people from the Kabul airport before Aug. 31, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said.
“We are engaging with the Taliban, consulting with the Taliban, on every aspect of what’s happening in Kabul right now,” Sullivan said.
The U.S.-led international effort to get people out of Afghanistan has picked up pace in the last 24 hours.
So they tout the fact that our drone stopped another suicide attack today. “Big F’n deal” 170 got killed on the first one. Where was Biden then. Stupid question. He was hold up in his rat hole.
U.S. officials provided Taliban with names of Americans, Afghan allies to evacuate
The White House contends that limited information sharing with the Taliban is saving lives; critics argue it’s putting Afghan allies in harm’s way.
The decision to provide specific names to the Taliban, which has a history of brutally murdering Afghans who collaborated with the U.S. and other coalition forces during the conflict, has angered lawmakers and military officials. | Master Sgt. Donald R. Allen/U.S. Air Force via AP
U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.
The move, detailed to POLITICO by three U.S. and congressional officials, was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan as chaos erupted in Afghanistan’s capital city last week after the Taliban seized control of the country. It also came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.
NBC News blames Trump for ISIS-K attack in Afghanistan
NBC News blamed former president Donald Trump for the ISIS-K attack in Afghanistan Thursday that took the lives of 13 U.S. service members, injured 20 more, and killed even more Afghan citizens.
An article written by NBC military writer Sebastien Roblin said it may be “easy” to blame President Biden for the attack, but the “architecture” of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the region was built by Trump.
“The rushed evacuation and its vulnerability to Thursday’s deplorable attack were inevitable outcomes of the rapid collapse of the Afghan government,” Roblin wrote.
Omar’s most recent personal disclosure lists only five assets, four of them belonging to her husband. Notably, the disclosure lists the congresswoman’s husband’s earned income from his six to seven-figure job as a partner at political consulting firm eStreet Group, but does not appear to list any of the congresswoman’s personal bank accounts.
Omar’s bank account is an asset required to be disclosed, according to federal law, with her personal financial disclosure listing a pair of money market accounts.
The Minnesota Democrat’s latest lacking disclosure appears to be the newest instance in her lackluster financial reporting.
Omar also appears to have failed to disclose her bank account in both her 2018and 2019 financial disclosures, suggesting a potential unethical pattern in what she is disclosing to the public.
Omar’s campaign paid eStreet Group $3.7 million over the 2020 cycle, according to campaign filings, contributing four-fifths of political payments to her husband’s firm during the election cycle.

PLEASE PAY TRIBUTE AND SAY A PRAYER FOR OUR HEROES – THEY WERE LET DOWN BY THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF
Maxton Soviak, 22, Navy
Soviak, a Navy hospital corpsman, hailed from Berlin Heights, Ohio, and graduated from Edison High School in Milan in 2017, the Sandusky Register reported.
A woman who identified herself as Soviak’s older sister and goes by Marilyn Soviak on Instagram, penned a heartbreaking post Friday that confirmed her brother’s death.
“I’ve never been one for politics and i’m not going to start now. What I will say is that my beautiful, intelligent, beat-to-the-sound of his own drum, annoying, charming baby brother was killed yesterday helping to save lives,” the sister wrote.
“[H]e was a f–king medic. there to help people. and now he is gone and my family will never be the same. there is a large Maxton sized hole that will never be filled,” she wrote alongside a slideshow of images showing the two as children.
“[H]e was just a kid. [W]e are sending kids over there to die. kids with families that now have holes just like ours.”
Soviak’s family later released a statement calling him a “wonderful son who loved his family, his community, and was proud to serve in the US Navy.”
“He was excited about the opportunities the Navy would offer him and planned to make the Navy a career,” the statement said.
“We are incredibly proud of his service to our country… Words cannot express how heartbroken we are with this news and we will miss Max tremendously.”
While in high school, Soviak played football and was on the honor roll, the outlet reported.
“Max was a good student who was active in sports and other activities throughout his school career. He was well respected and liked by everyone who knew him,” the school said in a statement, adding that news of his death has brought “great sorrow.”
Soviak previously worked as a lifeguard and a maintenance technician, the outlet reported.
“His family is going through much turmoil and grief,” Garza wrote, “so we wanted to start this fund in honor of Max and his family to help with everything financial so they can focus on their family during this time of need.”
Kareem Nikoui, 20, Marines
Kareem Nikoui’s father didn’t realize his son had been killed until he saw a clutch of Marines show up at his door in Norco, Calif., the Daily Beast reported.
“I’m going on about 36 hours, I believe, that I’ve been up and I’m still in shock,” Steve Nikoui told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday. “The family is devastated and his mother, who’s an excellent mom, is doing the best that she can, considering the circumstances.”
The elder Nikoui told The Daily Beast his son “loved what he was doing” and “always wanted to be a Marine.”
“He really loved that [Marine Corps] family. He was devoted — he was going to make a career out of this, and he wanted to go. No hesitation for him to be called to duty,” the dad said.
Ahead of his deployment to Afghanistan, Kareem Nikoui was stationed nearby at Camp Pendleton and often visited home on the weekends, bringing along “10 or 15 other Marines” with him, the dad told the website.
“My wife and I felt very honored that [since] these other boys weren’t around their homes, that we were able to provide some sort of family life for them,” he said.
On Friday night, Steve Nikoui criticized the sloppy execution of the US evacuation, and claimed his son and his fellow service members were caught in a “turkey shoot.”
“Basically, it’s funneled into like a single-file type [of] entry point at which, you know, if you have any sort of chaos of any sort, they would all gather to that one funneled area [in] which they would all be susceptible and I think that’s exactly what happened,” he told Tucker Carlson. “It was just basically so chaotic and not really planned out. Now, I’m a carpenter and even I could spot that with my untrained military eye.”
The elder Nikoui was more blunt in an interview with the Daily Beast, saying US officials “sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security.”
“I blame my own military leaders … Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
The day before Kareem Nikoui was killed, he sent his dad a video that showed him talking with Afghan children and giving them candy at the Kabul airport. Steve Nikoui said Friday that the clip put him and his wife “at ease to where we felt like, he’s all right.”
“He was born the same year it started , and ended his life with the end of this war,” Nikoui told The Daily Beast in reference to the Afghan war.
“I’m really disappointed in the way that the president has handled this, even more so the way the military has handled it. The commanders on the ground should have recognized this threat and addressed it.”
“Our thoughts and prayers will remain with the family of United States Fallen Marine, David L. Espinoza, as well as to his friends and fellow Marines,” the agency wrote in a Facebook post alongside a photo of Espinoza.
“Semper Fi. Thank you for your service.”
Espinoza graduated from Lyndon B. Johnson High School in Laredo and lived in Rio Bravo his entire life, KGNS reported.
“Mr. Espinoza, a Laredo Marine killed in Afghanistan, embodied the values of America: grit, dedication, service, and valor. When he joined the military after high school, he did so with the intention of protecting our nation and demonstrating his selfless acts of service,” Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) wrote on Twitter.
“I mourn him and all the fallen heroes in Afghanistan. My heart goes out to the Espinoza family in this extremely difficult time. The brave never die. Mr. Espinoza is a hero.”
McCollum, from Bondurant, Wyoming, was on his first deployment, had just gotten married, and was three weeks away from being a dad when he was killed in Thursday’s blast, according to the Casper Star Tribune.
“He wanted to be a Marine his whole life and carried around his rifle in his diapers and cowboy boots,” McCollum’s sister Roice McCollum told the outlet.
“He was determined to be in infantry … Rylee wanted to be a history teacher and a wrestling coach when he finished serving his country. He’s a tough, kind, loving kid who made an impact on everyone he met. His joke and wit brought so much joy.”
Rylee McCollum had just graduated from high school in 2019 and was manning an airport checkpoint when the bomb exploded, the outlet said.
“Saying that I am grateful for Rylee’s service to our country does not begin to encapsulate the grief and sadness I feel today as a mother and as an American,” Wyoming Schools Superintendent Jillian Balow told the outlet.
“My heart and prayers are with Rylee’s family, friends, and the entire Jackson community.”
Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon tweeted about the death early Friday.
“I’m devastated to learn Wyoming lost one of our own in yesterday’s terrorist attack in Kabul,” Gordon wrote.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Rylee McCollum of Bondurant. Jennie and I, along with all of Wyoming and the entire country thank Rylee for his service.”
“His life meant so much more. I’m so incredibly devastated that I won’t be able to see the man that he was very quickly growing into becoming,” Schmitz’s father, Mark Schmitz, told the outlet.
The heartbroken dad said his son, who always dreamed of being a soldier, was on his first deployment and was sent to Afghanistan from Jordan. He was notified of his son’s death at about 2:40 a.m.
State Rep. Nick Schroer penned a Facebook post about the death.
“Today please pray for Lance Corporal Jared Schmitz who paid the ultimate sacrifice yesterday serving our nation,” Schroer wrote on Facebook.
“This young marine was from St. Charles County and is a true American hero. Keep his family in your prayers today. Thank you for your service young man! God Bless you and your family, Marine.”
Hunter Lopez, 22, Marine
Lopez was a Corporal who hailed from California and planned to follow in his parent’s footsteps and become a sheriff’s deputy once he was done with deployment, CBS Los Angeles reported.
The Riverside Sheriff’s Association released a statement on behalf of Lopez’s parents, Riverside Deputy Sheriff Alicia Lopez and Riverside Sheriff’s Captain Herman Lopez, the outlet reported.
“We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Hunter, who chose to follow a life of service, selflessness, courage and sacrifice, like his parents. Hunter was a Riverside Sheriff’s Explorer Scout with the Palm Desert Station from September 2014 to August 2017,” the statement said.
The RSA said Lopez was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines “who answered the call to serve, defend and protect our nation.”
“Hunter was the victim of vicious evil and was killed because he wore a United States [Marine] uniform with love and pride. Our entire community feels the anguish, and we mourn the death of Hunter,” the statement continued.
“Like his parents who serve our community, being a Marine to Hunter wasn’t a job; it was a calling. He loved his family, and as we grieve for Hunter and his fellow Marines taken from us too soon, there are simply no words to express how deeply he will be missed — Semper Fi.”
The family asked for all donations to be made to the Riverside County Deputy Sheriff Relief Foundation.
Daegan Page, 23, Marines
Marine Cpl. Daegan Page was a native of Omaha, Neb., who loved hockey and hunting and “will always be remembered for his tough outer shell and giant heart,” his family said Friday.
Page, who joined the Marines out of high school, served with the 2nd Regiment of the 1st Marine Regiment, a unit known as “The Professionals” based at Camp Pendleton in Southern California.
“Daegan always looked forward to coming home and hanging out with his family and many buddies in Nebraska,” the family statement said. “To his younger siblings, he was their favorite jungle gym and to his friends, he was a genuinely happy guy that you could always count on.”

Ryan Knauss, 23, Army
The first US Army soldier identified as a victim of Thursday’s attack, Ryan Knauss was “a motivated young man who loved his country,” his grandfather said Friday.
Knauss, who hailed from Knoxville, Tenn., had just completed Psychology Operations training and was hoping to move to Washington, DC, his stepmother Linnae told WATE.
“He was a super-smart, hilarious young man,” Linnae Knauss told WATE of her stepson, who joined the Army shortly after graduating from high school. She added to WBIR that Ryan enjoyed building things with his hands and helping his wife Alena tend to her garden.
Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) tweeted Friday that Ryan “gave his life outside Hamid Karzai International Airport helping people he didn’t know get to safety. This is what true heroism looks like and Ryan’s sacrifice will never be forgotten. The Knauss family is in my prayers.”
Grandfather Wayne Knauss described Ryan as a devout Christian who attended religious schools through the eighth grade.
“He was a believer,” he said of his grandson, “so we will see him again in God’s heaven.”
Darin Taylor Hoover Jr., 31, Marines
Staff Sgt. Darin Taylor Hoover Jr., known as Taylor, was a former high school football player from Midvale, Utah who “lit up a room” when he entered, his father told The Washington Post.
“He was the most-loving, giving, understanding person you could ever meet,” the elder Darin Taylor told the paper. He added that since he was informed of his son’s death, he had received messages of condolences from other Marines who had Taylor as their sergeant.
“They look back on him and say that they’ve learned so much from him,” Hoover said. “One heck of a leader.”
Other family members paid tribute to Hoover on social media.
“Taylor spent his entire adult life as a Marine, serving,” one uncle, Jeremy Soto, wrote on Facebook. “Doing the hard things that most of us can’t do. He is a hero. Taylor is one of the 13 fallen in Afghanistan. We are wounded. We are bruised. We are angry. We are crushed … but we remain faithful.”
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox ordered flags at all state facilities and public grounds to be flown at half-staff through sunset Monday to honor Taylor’s memory, as well as the other Kabul attack victims.
“We are devastated to hear of the passing of Staff Sgt. Taylor Hoover, who served valiantly as a Marine and died serving his fellow countrymen as well as America’s allies in Afghanistan,” Cox said in a statement. “We honor his tremendous bravery and commitment to his country, even as we condemn the senseless violence that resulted in his death.”
Rep. Burgess Owens (R-Utah), whose district includes Midvale, tweeted that he was “devastated and heartbroken over the brave soldiers who lost their lives.
“But, I’m also angry,” Owens added. “Angry that this was avoidable and is the direct result of a feckless administration with no backbone.”PREVIOUS1of3NEXT
Hoover’s father told Fox 13 that his son “did what he loved, was leading his men and was with them to the end. He loved these United States and proved it by his service. We are so heartbroken and feel for the families of his fallen brothers as well. Our condolences go out to them in this trying time.”

Cpl. Humberto Sanchez, of Logansport, Indiana, was just four years out of high school, when he was killed.
Indiana Rep. Jim Baird identified Sanchez in social media posts Friday evening, writing that the Marine, a 2017 graduate of Logansport High School, “bravely answered the call to serve his nation.”
“I am both proud of his service and deeply saddened by his loss,” the congressman said.
“May we never forget Corporal Sanchez’s name or his heroism to a grateful nation. As the family grieves, I ask fellow Hoosiers to please join me in praying for his family during this incredibly difficult time.”
Indiana Sen. Mike Braun also mourned Sanchez, writing on Facebook to express his “condolences, prayers, and sincerest gratitude to the family of Hoosier Corporal Humberto Sanchez.”
“Corporal Sanchez is an American hero and his service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.”
Logansport Mayor Chris Martin, in a post that did not explicitly name Sanchez, said the fallen service member “had not yet even turned 30 and still had his entire life ahead of him.”
“Any plans he may have had for his post-military life were given in sacrifice due to the heart he exhibited in putting himself into harm’s way to safeguard the lives of others,” Martin wrote.
Nicole Gee, 23, Marines
Marine Sgt. Nicole Gee loved her work – and told the world so, only a week before she died.
“I love my job,” the 23-year-old captioned an Aug. 20 photo on Instagram showing the young sergeant cradling a rescued Afghan infant in her arms.
Gee, a maintenance technician with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, was from Roseville, Calif., Stars & Stripes reported. She had been assigned to assist women and girls at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport as they fled Taliban repression.
She last posted on Sunday — a photo of herself watching over a long line of evacuees as they boarded an airplane to flee Kabul.
“Escorting evacuees onto the bird,” Gee wrote with a heart emoji.
She was a “model Marine,” according to Capt. Karen Holliday, who mourned Gee’s death on her personal Facebook page.
“She was doing God’s work…..a warrior,” Holliday wrote, adding that Gee had recently earned a meritorious promotion to sergeant and boasted perfect fitness scores.
Sgt. Mallory Harrison, Gee’s roommate in the house they shared at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune, posted a heartbreaking Facebook tribute to her friend late Friday.
“I find peace knowing that she left this world doing what she loved,” Harrison wrote. “She was a Marine’s Marine. She cared about people. She loved fiercely. She was a light in this dark world.”
But she couldn’t let go of the image of Gee’s car, which Harrison had been maintaining in her absence.
“Her car is still there, & she’s gone forever,” Harrison wrote.
Dylan Merola, 20, Marines
Lance Cpl. Dylan Merola arrived in Kabul less than two weeks before he was killed in Thursday’s attack, according to his older brother.
“Was notified last night,” the heartbroken sibling, David Merola, tweeted Saturday with a photo of the beaming Marine in fatigues. “RIP and say hey to dad & grandma for me.”
Merola, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga, Cal., and a graduate of Los Osos High School, was remembered as an enthusiastic member of the school’s theater tech crew by classmate Benjamin Gruchy.
“He always showed up with a smile and brought energy to everyone he was with,” Gruchy wrote in tribute on a GoFundMe campaign organized to assist Merola’s family.
Word of his death quickly spread through the school, whose students wore red, white and blue at a Friday night football game to honor Merola’s sacrifice, the Orange County Register reported.
His mother Cheryl Merola said that her son planned to attend college and pursue engineering.
In his final text message to her, Dylan Merola said that he would not be able to call home during his evacuation assignment.
“He wrote … ‘I love you and I’ll talk to you soon,’” she told CBS 2 news.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––about:blank
“He was one of the best kids ever,” Cheryl Merola added. “Kind. Loving. Giving to every single person. He would give anything for anybody.”
Seven months into his presidency corresponds to his past 47 years in politics; accomplished nothing his resume reads. To be interpreted by any sane individual means “he must be a f.ck up.” But that didn’t stop the WOKE crowd from voting him into office. When we say WOKE, we include all entities, countries, persons who are responsible for him sitting in the White House. Obama went on the apology tour, went down on his knees in Saudi Arabia and who knows what else he did behind the scenes. But we have a President drenched in blood. A killer, murderer, deserter, slayer, a plague to the United States of America, WORSE THAN COVID-19. Compared to Obama (chris wallace is another liberal doofus), this Clown is Pure Evil, a MENACE TO SOCIETY. The Democrats must be held accountable for the tragedy that occurred on November 3, 2020. If they don’t stand up now, it is not only our duty, but our obligation to bring them to justice. Two members of congress, Pelosi and Schiff are guilty, they provided fodder to the president in the days leading up to Kabul’s Tet offensive. Not only did they feed the narrative, they provided the names of Afghan interpreters who were shot in the head by Taliban executioners.
In a statement, US Central Command (CENTCOM) said the operation targeted a “planner” of ISIS-K, the group also known as the Islamic State Khorasan, which took credit for Thursday’s deadly attack.
“The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target,” said Capt. Bill Urban of Central Command.
“We know of no civilian casualties,” he added.
The strike took place a little after President Biden on Thursday evening vowed to “not forgive” and “not forget” those responsible for the attack, and said he had ordered US generals to plan retaliatory strikes on the group’s key assets.
“We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said in remarks from the White House Thursday evening. “I will defend our interests and our people with every measure at my command.”
A defense official told The Associated Press that Biden had authorized the strike, which was then ordered by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
The drone was launched from outside Afghanistan in a “over-the-horizon counterterrorism operation,” Urban said.
Earlier Friday, Pentagon officials told reporters that they were ready to carry out any retaliatory operation ordered by the president, with Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor of the Joint Staff telling reporters that “we have options there right now.”
A White House official acknowledged Friday that Biden’s national security team has warned the president that another terror attack is “likely” before the Aug. 31 deadline set by the administration to remove all US forces from the country.
Out soldiers died because Biden deserted them; left them on the battlefield to die. Clinton did the same in Benghazi.However, how bad the liar Clinton was, this is much worse. Biden did not support our troops, his lame brain could not comprehend the threat posed by the Taliban, ISIS and al Qaeda. Blood is on his hands. We demand he be arrested by the Sargent at Arms. Jailed and tried for treason.
13 US service members killedin Kabul airport explosion, officials say: LIVE UPDATES
A suicide bombing outside of Kabul, Afghanistan’s airport Thursday has killed 12 U.S. service members, officials tell Fox News. A second explosion later took place outside the Baron Hotel, sources say.
“I can confirm that subsequent to Gen. McKenzie’s remarks, a thirteenth U.S.service member has died from his wounds suffered as a result of the attackon Abbey Gate,” CENTCOM spokesperson Capt. Bill Urban said. “The latest number of injured is now 18, all of whom are inthe process of being aeromedically evacuated from Afghanistan on speciallyequipped C-17s with embarked surgical units.”
“We continue to provide the best possible medical care to those injured. Our thoughts and prayers continue tobe with the injured and to the friends and family of those who were killed.”
OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THEIR FAMILIES FOR THEIR KIN PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE.
Those accountable for this TET Offensive not only include Biden but those who helped elect him. CNN, MSNBC, TWITTER, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE ABC, NBC, CBS, WAPO, NY TIMES. They knew he was unfit for office, but turned a blind eye because of their hate for Trump WHO OUTED THE FAKE NEWS.
Time for Democrats to stand up and be counted. Those who don’t vote for impeachment of the president are JUST AS GUILTY. They are harboring a murderer, one with an incontinentent problem
,an Alzheimer inflicted president,,a fugitive. Biden has destroyed any goodwill that Trump had built with our friends. The current situation is bleak. Our European and Asian allies can no longer count on America for support. Biden has lost all credibility. We call for the impeachment of Pelosi too. The charge, sedition, harboring a fugitive.
A crowd of Afghans were standing in a canal waiting for evacuation flights when the first explosion took place, followed soon after by another blast at a hotel where many other evacuees had been told to gather.
