Editorial – Before the bombs, Kabul 8/16/21

On August 16, 2021, we sent the following editorial submission to over a dozen local, regional, and national news outlets. Not one shared this with the public, nor contacted us about the content. Considering the well reported left-leaning bias of news media companies you can speculate if such content was just deleted rather than read or considered for publication.

Since the editorial submission, we have been furiously creating content covering the growing consequences of the Biden-Harris Administration’s international fiasco. Sadly, the deaths of 12 Marines, 1 Navy Corpsman, 2 British civilians and 1 British child, and some 90-100 Afghani civilians is not the end of the catastrophe.

Even as we continue to cover the unfolding debacle, we felt it was important for the public to see our editorial submission. It is up to you to decide if it can add any weight to the pressure on elected leaders to more thoroughly plan contingencies in Afghanistan and at home.

Editorial Submission 8/16/21

Michael “Vass” Vasquez, owner NO Soundbites Allowed, political commentator

From his seat in the Oval Office, Joe Biden destabilized the Middle East in his effort to impress the Progressive wing of his Party. That decision he made, the orders he gave to exit Afghanistan in a reckless manner has created a dramatic national security issue.

The Taliban has released thousands of ISIS and Al Qaeda prisoners. Not just on the 15th, but in the weeks leading to that day as reported by international news and ignored by US media. Those violent terrorists, a known credible threat, now are at-large invigorated in their anti-American, anti-Israeli, anti- anything that does not submit to their will hate.

Then consider our southern border. Porous to the point that nearly 1 million illegal aliens have entered our nation, that we know of. Our northern border is unspoken but contains hundreds of miles of unwatched woodland. Can we really be confident that terrorist agents can’t enter our nation?

Yes, a dozen have been caught to-date, again that we know of. What of the thousands of illegal aliens we don’t know of, or those that slipped past in the effort to ship people from overcrowded cages to States and cities across the nation in the middle of the night to avoid public attention or media scrutiny.

As a matter of immediate national security we must close our borders. This is no longer a time we can afford to pander to a splinter fringe of the Democrat Party, or the majority of news media agencies.

Democrats control both Houses of Congress. They need to act, per the obligation of the oath of office, to protect the public they serve.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, need to recognize the situation as it exists. Pause on the partisan deflection of blame. Secure the border. Action may well cost some political capital but that cost is far less than American lives.
