The hits just keep on coming: The Week in Review
“I have great confidence in Gen. Milley

It's been another bad week for Joe Biden. Some seem to think that his most recent embarrasment, (his woke General) might just be a distraction from Biden's ongoing problems in Afghanistan and along the southern border and with controlling covid. It was the week that Bob Woodward put the spotlight on General Milley for his words and deeds during the final months of the Trump administration. Serious allegations have been made via Woodward's new book "Peril." Most serious were the secret calls Milley made to his Chinese counterpart. Next Tuesday we may get answers from Milley himself. We got none from our beleaguered president.

Next in importance would be the story that the msm has refused to cover - the crisis along the southern border. The border patrol and facilities used by the border patrol are currently so overwhelmed that migrants have created their own encampment under a Texas border bridge. There are an estimated 8,000 waiting there for the border patrol to pick them up. Drone footage shot by Fox News shows the sea of migrants, the majority from Haiti, under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas. The FAA even banned the drones over the southern border claiming safety concerns. The more obvious reason was to cover up the truth of a wide open border.

It was also the week that saw Biden's Secretary of State, Antony Blinken facing aggressive questions from Republicans and some democrats over the Biden administration's atrocious handling of the Afghanistan withdrawl. "Secretary Blinken just acknowledged the Taliban has blocked charter flights out of Afghanistan, with Americans still there trying to get out. We’re in a hostage crisis . "And today Joe Biden is campaigning in California," former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows wrote on Twitter. 

And of course, it came as a surprise to nobody that democrats found a way to keep Gavin Newsom in office for another year. We also found Biden and/or his handlers trying to drive the science (the FDA) on a booster shot. "Science" struck back: The average person doesn’t need a COVID-19 booster yet, an international group of scientists — including two top U.S. regulators — wrote Monday in a scientific journal.
https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/fda-experts-group-opposing-us-booster-shot-plan-79992033

Today (Friday, September 17) Influential government advisers will discuss if there’s enough proof that a booster dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective — the first step toward deciding which Americans need one and when.

We even got a bit of information from the Durham investigation. A member of the Clinton campaign lied to the FBI and tried to manipulate an all too willing FBI into investigating the Trump campaign. Although it was an important development in the probe into the origins of the FBI's investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia, it isn't necessarily key to the actual origins of the Russia investigation. This indictment had to come quickly because of the statute of limitations.

W ednesday we had the spectacle of "the commander-in-chief" telling reporters that he was “happy to take questions” before having his microphone and camera feed cut off.

The negotiations between democrats over the $3.5 Trillion dollar "Infrastructure" bill have continued to drag on. The longer the better I say.

Finally there is a story of a missing 22 year old woman which has gripped the country. The search for Gabby Petito continues as her family and loved ones become more and more agitated with no help from Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie, or his family. 


What have we learned:

First we learned that "woke" Generals don't have to resign or be Court-Martialed when they get caught up in serious scandals. I guess we already knew that. We also learned that AOC is willing to kill the bipartisan infrastructure bill if she doesn't get approval for the second bill. We learned that some here think that if one is not a Marxist professor, then one must be a Capitalist professor. We also learned than when certain Senators say something, they are to be taken at their word. When John McCain said that he couldn't vote for an imortant piece of legislation, that had all of the Trump administration's future legislation tied to it, because as he put it "the 'replace' part was utterly absent from the bill - we must believe him!  It wasn't because he hated Donald Trump. No, it was simply because of that pesky replace part. Every Republican knew that if that bill wasn't passed on that day, it never would. Most important of all, we recently learned that amnesty for millions of illegal aliens was tucked into the "infrastructure bill."


Another week of the Biden presidency is now in the books. Let us see what next week brings for the American people.

Nothing to play down. Biden is a very competent leader.

Very effective Senator from 1973 to 2009.

Now a very competent President no matter what far right wing fascists say.

I dont see any signs whatsoever that "the American people" are upset about Gen Milley talking to China. I see the far right trying to work everyone into hysteria, but I see it failing. 

This is a story that was a BLIP on national media. National news programs have barely mentioned it. 

It is not a crisis or a huge issue.

When it was mentioned, the main gist of the story was that Milley was so fearful of Trump's mental instability, that he felt it a real possibility that Trump may order a nuclear strike in order to maintain power.

So question the mental stability of one of the nation's leading generals?  Sure, yearly cognitive tests might be a smart idea for anyone with that much power.

But what about a POTUS, who has a finger on the "football", that believes in nuking hurricanes?  Might that not indicate cognitive dissonance?

The test?  THE test??? 

Are you under the impression that there is only 1 test? 

Or that there aren't tests that cover various degrees of cognitive dissonance? 

And that the one he took was one of the simplest, most basic one available?

And that his doctors have a history of stating what Trump wanted them to say, not the truth of the examinations?

You say all media is "left wing" media. That is nonsense. Most mainstream media is corporate directed. That is not "left wing". The sad FACT for you is that Trump was  particularly psychologically unstable in his last weeks in office , there have now been multiple books that have re-iterated this, and Milley saw this and acted to protect our country. All but Trumpster cultists understand this.

Unfortunately the Democrats rang the dinner bell loud and clearly for illegal immigrants; and have done nothing but play lip service to try and stop the flow.

Funny how Biden warned Haitians and Cubans not to come as the ocean voyage was too dangerous. Guess they figured if the southern border was wide open to South Americans, Central Americans, and Mexicans they could come in that way as well.

Still no plan from the Biden administration on how to close the southern border; or handle illegal immigration. With more coming how much longer before it turns into a humanitarian crisis?   Maybe the rest of the world can send food, supplies, and aid workers to our southern border? That would make the US look even better to the rest of the world.
