If you’re surprised about this — then I am surprised.
Colin Kahl, the Pentagon’s top policy advisor, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Islamic State Khorasan, known as ISIS-K, and al-Qaida both have the intent to launch attacks on the West. In fact, they could have the ability to attack the United States within six months to a year.
Who is ISIS-K?
Well they were responsible for the deadly suicide bombings outside Afghanistan’s Kabul airport that killed so many, including our soldiers.
Kahl added, the intelligence community currently assesses that ISIS-K could do so as early as next spring, and al-Qaida “could potentially develop that capability within one to two years.”
How is that possible?
It all goes back to the failed Afghanistan withdrawal. The administration owns this, but they won’t stand up. They’ll blame everyone else.
WELL NOW, at least he’s consistent:
Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.), who voted to impeach Trump over Jan. 6, has now called for President Biden to leave office.
“President Biden, you yourself said ‘The Buck stops here.’ Do the American people a favor. Resign and turn the job over to someone who can handle it.”
WELL NOW isn’t this interesting too:
The Senate voted to confirm a handful of Biden ambassador nominations — including former Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake to be ambassador to Turkey and Cindy McCain to be the ambassador to the U.N. Agencies for Food and Agriculture.
The two anti Trumpers from Arizona get rewarded.
WELL NOW: Seattle, Minneapolis and the police?
In Seattle there are two candidates. One is a store owner who’s building was attacked in the riots and is pro police. The other is for defunding.
A poll released this week shows the Pro candidate ahead 48-32.
What’s more among people of color, 57% wanted more police and only 35% wanted to shift money away.
Hmm, maybe that summer of love was too much.
In Minneapolis the story is a little different:
A recent poll found that voters supported a ballot measure reconfiguring the police department by 49% to 41%.
What was interesting was the support was mainly from White voters. They backed the idea 51% to 40%.
Minority voters showed a 47 – 42 opposition to the plan. They want more police.
WELL NOW, that’s a switch.
Herschel Walker has turned Mitch McConnell and gotten his support for the senate in Georgia.
This comes after the expressions of deep concern among establishment Republicans that Walker’s past, including accusations of domestic violence, would undermine the party’s chances in one of its top takeover targets. McConnell was reported as actively looking for other options to run instead.
The guess is, with Trump’s support, Walker would win the primary. Of course. Now, can he win the General Election? We doubt it, and if we’re right, it is a major blow to the Republicans’ chances of winning the senate.
LET”S SEE NOW: Comings and goings.
The President is going to Capital Hill in the morning to try and get his party to agree on a deal.
Then he is going on TV to claim he has a deal for the environment and maybe on spending (A framework).
Then he’s flying off to Europe for days of meetings with other world leaders. Won’t that be interesting?
As he leaves, a large caravan continues its march to our “closed border.”
Let’s keep an eye on how the MSM plays the first three while it ignores the last.
RESIGN: WELL NOW, the list is growing:
If you watched any part of the AG Garland hearing before the senate you know he had a rough day. Included were a few “thank goodness you were not selected to the court, you should resign now” comments.
With that in mind, I thought you’d like to browse the calls from Republicans for Biden officials to resign:
