Wow! Another second beautiful day in a row! God must be thinking that some people somewhere around the area deserve a reprieve from the Triple-H. It will be short lived as we are supposed to have one more day of beautiful weather, then Sunday it warms up. On Monday, in time for the beach on Labor Day, the humidity returns and Triple-H becomes the norm again.

OK. So about what do I rant? I do have a lot to disparage, so where do I begin? Man, I hate talking about Americans left in Afghanistan. It's as if that is the only topic of discussion among conservative pundits and talk show hosts. I understand its importance. And I know it is true. I also know, based on past events with the Taliban that many will never come home, losing their lives or their ability to come back as they may be thrust into servitude or worse.

The political pundits are focusing on Biden's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan as a political blunder by the president and our military leaders. But what if the root cause for Biden's withdrawal is much more ominous and sinister than mere stupidity?  Uh Oh! Here come the conspiracy theories! But wait! The following questions demand an answer.

Why would our military commanders willingly give up Bagram, a strategic airport built by the Russians, and why would they willingly leave $85 billion in military hardware behind?

Why would they leave thousands of Americans stranded behind enemy lines while providing the Taliban a "kill list" of those Americans left behind?  Unlike previous withdrawals, where it is customary upon withdrawal to first evacuate our citizens, and then destroy the equipment and blow up the bases, we did the opposite.  We did not evacuate our citizens.  We did not destroy the equipment.  And we did not blow up the bases.

We have learned that the Biden administration cut off all communication with the anti-Taliban resistance group, the National Front.  Although Ali Nazar, head of foreign relations for the group, has said he "tried to reach out," there has been no response from the Biden administration.  Glenn Beck recently reported that his mission to rescue Afghan Christians has been blocked by our State Department and the White House, and he fears that they may be burned alive or crucified by the Taliban.

Are we to believe that our military leadership, led by four-star generals, is so naïve and incompetent?  Highly unlikely!

A more likely scenario is that Afghanistan was surrendered at the urging of the Red Chinese, who saw an opportunity to blackmail old Joe for the many kickbacks he and his son, Hunter, had been taking throughout his years in Washington, D.C.  It is no secret that the Red Chinese have had their eye on Afghanistan's mineral deposits.  Just two weeks before the American surrender, a Chinese delegation met in Kabul with the Taliban.  Although the mainstream media have protected and covered for Joe Biden, reports of information contained on Hunter Biden's laptop and emails exchanged between his partner, Tony Bobulinski, and Hunter, are damning proof of illicit wheeling and dealing by the Bidens to provide access to the White House while Joe was vice president.

I read in the Washington Times about a May 2017 email exchange between Hunter Biden and his former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, the two discussed how to cut Joe Biden in on a multi-million-dollar deal with a Communist Party billionaire.  In the email, Joe Biden was referred to as "The Big Guy."  That email exchange was one of thousands of messages found on Hunter Biden's laptop that he left behind in a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware in April of 2019.  The repair shop–owner turned over the laptop to the FBI, but in a telling sign of the FBI's lack of fidelity to our country, it failed to investigate what was clearly a sign of selling access.

As far back as 2013, Hunter Biden's equity firm scored a $1.5-billion deal with the Bank of China only days after his father paid an official visit to the country.  The deal was made at a time when the Red Chinese declared their sovereignty over the South China Sea.  Our allies in the region were rightfully upset and voiced their disapproval; thus, it was in that context that Vice President Joe Biden was sent to China to confront the Chinese about their controversial move.  He flew to China on Air Force Two along with his son, Hunter, and his granddaughter.  However, Joe Biden failed to challenge the Chinese.  Instead, he went soft, and, not surprisingly, his son returned to the United States with a $1.5-billion deal.

Surrendering to a terrorist organization, leaving Americans behind enemy lines, providing the terrorists with $85 billion in military aid which they will in return use against us, and blocking the evacuation of Americans are indicative of an administration acting as a proxy for those who seek our demise.  Already, there has been a transfer of our left-behind arms to Iran and Pakistan, while secretary of state Antony Blinken has announced our intention to recognize the Taliban as a legitimate government should they renounce terror.  Blinken should not need to be reminded that the Taliban is a terror organization, and to drive that point home, they wasted no time in releasing the ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists held as prisoners while we were there.

Instead of holding the terrorists accountable, we are deferring to them on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the deadliest terrorist attack upon our country.  Negotiating with a terrorist organization is forbidden under U.S. law, but with a corrupt DOJ and a spineless Congress, it appears there is no one we can rely upon but ourselves to conduct a proper investigation into the treasonous acts committed by Joe Biden and his band of cohorts.

Is China, by way of a domestic proxy, now dictating American foreign policy?  If so, where do we go from here?

The only answer I can think of is to push toward the defeat of any and all Democrats in Congress. Now that won't happen as we do have about fifteen of our states infiltrated or overrun with Communist minded Leftist in the majority and always willing to vote for handouts, holdouts, and hucksters. Such is the Democrat Party.

In other news, ... I had a graveside service of an 87 year old lady who was noted for her Master Gardiner prowess, her interior design expertise and her love of God. She was not a member of my church, and, in fact, she wasn't physically able to attend church of quite awhile due to many ailments. It was a small-family private service in which about fifteen family and friends showed up and a few spoke up to share the deceased love of all things nature. My brief message centered on "the world of the artist" and from what I heard and could tell, she was an artist, with nature, i.e. flowers and trees.

I mention this event because it was really an enjoyable few moments spent out at the cemetery with a gentle breeze, low humidity, under a tree's shade and quite. Although rare, sometimes there are enjoyable moments at a graveside as I help a family reflect upon legacies - i.e. the legacy left behind by the one who is gone and whose earthly remains are encased in the casket before them. It's OK to mourn the loss. It is equally OK to be in a thankful spirit to the Creator (the Great Artist) of the Universe while attending a funeral. God created life and then, sin takes it away. Jesus conquered sin and by doing so conquered death and through Him God gives life again! Only this time, it's for eternity.

I just thought I would drop in a positive, more beautiful few lines to break away from all the bad things that surround us all of the time.

It is still early; not quite 12:00 noon, so I think that since I hadn't eaten breakfast that I will go to A.J. Gator's to have a chef's salad and some of their great sweet iced tea. When I get back home, I may sit outside under one of my trees and read a book. That would be one of my ways to admire and enjoy God's creation. I don't have to stand on a street corner and shout out to everyone in hearing distance to "Come to Jesus, before the fire destroys the earth." I just have to acknowledge Him and thank Him for his wonders.

Now if I could only do this on a regular basis: especially on Sunday afternoon after a bummer of a church experience. Thankfully, that has not happened in six weeks, but this Sunday is Labor Day Sunday and that usually means that the work load increases on me as some of our regulars will be missing. We will see, though. Recently, I have been pleasantly surprised.

Blog for September 2 Blog for September 4


Blogs are about the blogger. It's as if he or she merely toots their own horns about the things they do, say and love.

My life is boring. I read, I watch Glenn Beck and Mark Levin. I listen to Andrew Wilkow. I engage in some conversation with those who are willing to listen (they being masochistic and enjoy killing themselves with my banter).

I plan on just laying out the things that bother me and the things I love. Nothing in-between. I hope you find whatever I put here amusing.
