It’s time to end the madness. However you feel about Joe Biden’s handling of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, I want you to focus on what’s best for Americans on American soil right here. Right now.

Our citizens are suffering under continued draconian lockdowns, medical tyranny, skyrocketing inflation, violent crime, cancerous homelessness, border chaos, ideological persecution, and Silicon Valley censorship.

Cops cannot or will not maintain law and order.

Gun owners who exercise their right to self-defense face scorn at best and decades in prison at worst.

Our troops are being emasculated and mass-vaccinated against their will.

The mental health crisis among veterans and teens is unceasing.

Health care workers have become shills and guinea pigs for Big Pharma.

Schools regulate how much air your children can breathe, whether they are allowed to have water breaks or sing in public, and how much guilt they must confess in the classroom for the sin of being white or part white.

Our criminal justice system is run by corruptocrats and hijacked by mob rule.

Election integrity is a joke and those who expose it are punished.

This country has transmogrified before our eyes into an incorrigible Clown World. The very last thing we need right now is to compound the chaos with the addition of 30,000 Afghan refugees imported through the “Special Immigrant Visa program” run by the notoriously open-borders, America Last U.S. State Department. According to documents obtained by Fox News over the weekend, the bureaucracy “plans to potentially relocate up to 30,000 Afghan SIV applicants into the United States in the immediate future” and resettle them at military bases such as Fort McCoy in Wisconsin and Fort Bliss in Texas “while still being vetted for parolee status.”

“We want to have the capacity to get up to several thousand immediately and want to be prepared for the potential of tens of thousands,” Pentagon Spokesperson John Kirby told Fox News. “Bliss and McCoy have the capability right now – and what’s advantageous is with a little bit of work, they could increase their capacity in very short order…We’re going to focus on getting as many folks out as we can.”

Whoa, whoa, whoa, Nelly. When do ordinary Americans, whose neighborhoods will be flooded with all these untold numbers of “folks,” get a say about this “Import First, Ask Questions Later” refugee dump? Who voted for 6,000 of our best and bravest American soldiers to be used as travel agents and security guards for unlimited numbers of poor, unskilled, and unvetted Afghans and their families who will soak up precious public resources in our age of pandemania?

Bleeding heart Democrats and Biden-bashing Republicans are both tripping over themselves to virtue signal over the sight of desperate Afghans clamoring into helicopters and planes to get out their Godforsaken mess of a country. I understand the impulse to exploit the withdrawal fiasco for political gain. But pull yourselves together and think, people. Think.

ORDER IT NOW

The “Special Immigrant Visa” program was originally created to help a small number of Afghan and Iraqi interpreters who worked for the U.S military. By 2018, the U.S. Government Accountability Office reported that a whopping 60,000-plus individuals—about 20,000 principal SIV holders and their families—had been admitted to America under SIVs and received federal resettlement assistance upon arrival. The number of SIV visas has grown steadily over the past decade as the number of troops in the Middle East has shrunk. In 2017, 26,000 troops were stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq; that year, 18,000-plus SIV applications from Afghans and Iraqis were approved.

Do the math. This isn’t compassion. It’s a con game.

At what cost? In July, Open Borders Inc. advocates helped push through \$1 billion in new funding for the Afghan SIV program. The cash benefits flow immediately —including resettlement grants, cash, medical assistance, social services, employment services, food stamps, case management services, and welfare that can last up to five years. Despite all that, the feds found that 60 percent of SIV holders were unemployed 90 days after arrival.

Meanwhile, Afghan SIV holders in Northern Virginia—where the numbers have increased more than tenfold since fiscal year 2013 and almost doubled from fiscal years 2015 through 2016, according to the GAO—were straining schools, hospitals, and affordable housing before COVID chaos. Imagine what the impact will be now—and don’t be naïve about the demographic and electoral consequences of recklessly throwing open the gates to these masses, let alone the public safety and national security implications of allowing untold numbers of refujihadis to blend in with the refugee population, which I’ve reported on extensively in my books and columns.

How do we prevent the refugee resettlement racket from pressuring American politicians to keep importing endless numbers of people from countries that hate our guts? Twenty years of reflection upon the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq should make it clear to all who truly put America first:

Mind our own business first, put our country and its people first, and stop exporting American soldiers to wage endless and hopeless wars in countries that hate our guts.

    I think you are generously misinterpreting their motives, Mrs. Malkin, at least for the D’s. Their hearts aren’t bleeding. They are out to destroy this country via the immigration invasion on many fronts. The legal route via the Steve-Sailer-dubbed “Invade-the-World/Invite-the-World/In-Hoc-to-the World” is just one big part of this strategy.

    Bleeding hearts? Nah, bile-leaking gall bladders is probably a better term, as this crowd leaks nasty poisonous bile in print as they hate on traditional American society.

    As a commenter with the apt handle “Citizen of a Silly Country” wrote recently, they hate us and want us dead. We really need to take that to heart. As for Peak Stupidity, we realize that the followers of the ctrl-left are nothing different from those resentful ones of old – “None Dare Call them Communists”.*

    I agree that it is a misinterpretation, but differ in the reason.
    These people have to live somewhere, eat, and otherwise CONSUME. That leads to the capitalist wet dream of COMPETITION for those products creating DEMAND, which leads to higher prices and BIGGER PROFITS.
    It's all about the Benjamins.

  2. BTW, just so you know, Michelle, your “O-limp-ics” column only appeared on the main page of this site a day or two ago, but it’s already off the list of (only 1 right now) articles by you appearing under your name.

    I see that you wrote this a while back, as it IS now in the archives, but someone forgot to either put the link on the main page or post it on the site period. That wasn’t fair, as we just got started commenting and not many would have had time to read it.

  4. Once again Michelle displays the facts and the disturbing truth. It is not pretty to read and most would rather not hear any of it. But here we sit, idle as what was once the greatest country in the world slowly slips away into the dark abyss of tyranny. What can we do to counter this madness? Vote at the next election? That is what they would have you believe however, I think we know that ship has sailed too. Ideas? Oh, and be careful they’re watching.

    I think Hans has got it right. Michelle Malkin probably believed the government back then. Most everybody did. Same with Iraq and WMD. Lies.

    These "immigrants" would have been loyal to the U.S. in Afghanistan, and maybe for all the wrong reasons, like money.

    Besides, do we really know why the U.S. were in Afghanistan in the first place? How much money was being made from the opium and heroin? There was a good article on this site about how the East India Company used India to produce opium that was then forced onto the Chinese. Was Afghanistan the new India?

    And how much money was made by the U.S. military contractors and arms manufacturers from the war in Afghanistan? Probably a lot.

    Is the Taliban similar to al-qaeda, just another arm of the U.S. government? Like Antifa and BLM? Useful tools? I remember injured al-qaeda going to Israel to be stitched back together again. Makes you wonder if, like Russiagate, it's all made up. Add in the pandemic too.

  6. I assume any interpreters employed by the US were paid for their services. They took the job and must live with the consequences. Its a risky business collaborating with an foreign army. I imagine quite a few interpreters for the German and Japanese Armies in WW2 paid a very high price for doing that job.

    The good news is only the collaborators in Kabul can reach the airport and I seen reports the Taliban has set up check points to screen who is allowed to enter. My guess is very few of the people the US wants to evacuate will be allowed through. The Taliban probably has other plans for them and they do not include living in comfort in Europe or America.

  7. Surely this is as bad an idea as importing Chechens. Amirite?

  8. The belly of that beast looks like a Tunis Corsair crew or a very very suntanned Viking longboat invasion.

  9. Cheap labor is where you find it.

    Interesting that allowing Afghanistan to fall and then opening us up to (unlimited?) immigration of Afghani refugees – most of which were never on our side, and many of which are certainly either Taliban or Taliban-sympathizers (you don’t think we will check, do you?) – this coincides with a de-facto opening of the southern borders to third-world refugees.

    Afghanistan has the highest fertility rate outside of Africa, they breed like rodents, their numbers double end redouble, the problem there is not lack of ‘democracy’, but brutal crushing poverty.

    Just pack them in. Drive wages down and rents and profits up.

    All according to plan.

    Per the media we have a worker shortage. The reasons why are myriad but suffice to say higher wages usually attracts more and better applicants. But that's not really happening and certain sectors ( fast food, delivery, uber, etc. ) are never going to pay a living wage.

    Enter the feds and compliments of the biden regime we have replacement work forces arriving daily: Haitians, Mexicans, Central Americans, and now Africans and Afghans. It won't be long before everyone notices who's doing the "Infrastructure" jobs our crooked politicians are cooking up.

    None of this is good. No thanks to a toxic and incompetent school system we produce more deadbeats ( see Oregon's lower standards ). Thanks to endless welfare these people don't have to work anymore to afford their threadbare lives of low esteem and lower expectations.

    These deadbeats may be dumb, but they're not stupid. They know exactly who make their lazy lives possible----the democrat party.

  10. It’s the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan:

    “The man of the future will be a mongrel. Today’s races will disappear…a Eurasian-Negroid race will replace the diversity of peoples” – Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, (Practical Idealism, 1925).

    The International Bankerscum Behind The Kalergi Plan: “At the beginning of 1924, we received a call from Louis Rothschild; his friend, Max Warburg, had read my book and wanted to get to know us. To my great surprise, Warburg offered us 60,000 gold marks to tide the movement over for its first 3 years…Warburg had a principle of financing these movements. He introduced me to Paul Warburg and Bernard Baruch.” (http://www.balder.org/judea/Richard-Coudenhove-Kalergi-Practical-Idealism-Vienna-1925.php <– no longer available because hate facts)

    Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity…If you are a white male, you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world!” – (((Prof. Noel Ignatiev)))

    "The white race is the cancer of human history.” – (((Susan Sontag))), Partisan Review, Winter 1967, p. 57

    Luckily, our jewish friends have the Holohoax tale to protect them from all charges of treachery and they can still put bad goyim in prison for songs that mock their lies (see the jailing of Graham Hart and Alison Chabloz).

    “You seem to me to be the maddest of the lot. The Kaffirs, the Hottentots, and the Negroes of Guinea are much more reasonable and more honest people than your ancestors, the Jews. You have surpassed all nations in IMPERTINENT FABLES in bad conduct and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny.” — Voltaire, From a letter to a Jew who had written to him, complaining of his antisemitism in L’Essai sur le Moeurs

  11. Some days I wonder if Ms. Malkin would deport her own parents. After all, although Ms Malkin has birthright citizenship by virtue of being born in Philadelphia. Her parents were from another country and not US citizens when Ms Malkin was born. The best argument against allowing Afghan refugees in is that they are corrupt and cowardly. As President Biden said in his Monday speech, the Afghans basically put down their weapons and failed to defend their government against the Taliban. The deeper question is should the Taliban prosecute “collaborators” for war crimes and should the US shelter them from such prosecution. Ironic, won’ t it be, that the US invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban were sheltering Osama Bin Laden from US prosecution (or years in Gitmo and a good waterboarding).

    That's a very Jewish way of thinking. Would you happen to be a fan (or fellow tribesman) of Jennifer Mendelsohn, who rose to 'fame' with her Resistance Genealogy—obsessively researching the family tree of any (almost always White) public figure who dared oppose open borders, tweeting out what she thought were "gotcha" tidbits about immigrant ancestors—as if having immigrant ancestors means you must now support open borders to unlimited immigrants from every corner of the globe.

    There's a 100% chance you have an ancestor who was a thief, a rapist, robber, murderer...it would be hypocritical to oppose rape, robbery, murder!

    Jews are literally the only group who think like that, perceiving any immigration restriction as a personal attack on them to militantly oppose, even generations after their own ancestors immigrated (perhaps due to being the only group that's been expelled from 100+ countries) while every other group has gotten over it and assimilated into being American rather than perpetually identifying with outsider ancestors.

    In 2020 Democrats learned the hard way from Trump's 10pt gain, especially in Florida and Texas, that despite endless shrieks of "racism" and "xenophobia", even Hispanic voters are starting to shed the notion that proposing to limit the flow of new immigrants who happen to speak Spanish is not a personal attack on Hispanic citizens already here.

    Among immigrant demographics from Europe, no other ethnic group in America even thinks of "how would this theoretically affect my grandparents at Ellis Island a century ago" when determining what is the best course for U.S. immigration policy in the 21st century, in the interests of the American people who live here today.

  12. Good article, Michelle. But, how many voters will vote their emotions, instead of analyzing the consequences of what they are voting? Almost all voters, especially women. The problem with voting is that no one is ever held accountable for any mistakes they made in voting. Our laws give everyone rights, but no one is ever expected to show any responsibility nor accountability. That’s a recipe for disaster that we see happening today.

  13. Schools regulate ..

    There go the conservatives, again.

    They fundamentally support Big Government, e.g. public education. They oppose certain details of it, e.g. classroom confessionals.

    They oppose the welfare state, e.g. benefits for Afghan “refugees”, but not the warfare state, e.g. military interventions that create refugees in the first place; welfare for the middle class (e.g. K-14 daycare, FICA, on and on) OK.

  14. The very big lie told by lisping George W Bush:

    “‘we have to be in Afghanistan…or they will come to America to harm Americans…..”

    1+1=2 response:Don’t let them into America in the first place…And how do we do this? Answer: 0 MUSLIM LEGAL IMMIGRANTS forever!!”

    Why are Muslims..or any group of post-1965 nonwhite Legal Immigrants…allowed into America?

    Well, Jennifer Rubin knows the answer:

    Anyone who wants to see what Mrs. Malkin really thinks can take 20 or 30 minutes with the superb Search tool to review her columns about

    “Bolton” – She endorsed him circa 2003-2005, but didn’t find an occasion to once write his name during his last White House (Trump) gig.

    “Assange” and “Wikileaks” – Vilified (although not in the context of publishing the scandalous Clinton/DNC emails).

And when forced to by current events like Afghanistan, she still tells readers what they want to hear (Don’t invite!) instead of what they need to hear (Don’t invade!).

    Why has Mrs. Malkin nothing to say about whether and how Uncle Sam should be trying to Exceptionalize! places like China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and Yemen? She’s had plenty of time since landing here for Chinadidit smears and pushing the little Red White and Blue buttons on the sheep who still fall for Beltway politics.

    Thanks, Greta. I'll keep what you've said in mind.

    Let’s show our work.

    Anyone who wants to see what Mrs. Malkin really thinks can take 20 or 30 minutes with the superb Search tool to review her columns about

    “Bolton” – She endorsed him circa 2003-2005, but didn’t find an occasion to once write his name during his last White House (Trump) gig.

    “Assange” and “Wikileaks” – Vilified (although not in the context of publishing the scandalous Clinton/DNC emails).

    I knew essentially nothing about her before she was added to The Unz Review roster. Test her yourself with your own searches — it won’t take an hour, and unless I’ve missed something you’ll see that she has never renounced anything she’s done over the years on behalf of Big War. After President Cheney left office, she just slid over to outrage porn about Critical Race Theory, Black Lives Matter, and other divide & conquer domestic issues. And when forced to by current events like Afghanistan, she still tells readers what they want to hear (Don’t invite!) instead of what they need to hear (Don’t invade!).

    Why has Mrs. Malkin nothing to say about whether and how Uncle Sam should be trying to Exceptionalize! places like China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and Yemen? She’s had plenty of time since landing here for Chinadidit smears and pushing the little Red White and Blue buttons on the sheep who still fall for Beltway politics.

    I have raised her bona fides repeatedly, but am never refuted. Ready to discuss with those unafraid to look over her Archive.

    I’m not sure who “we” are or what the “deck” is, Hans, but why would you trust an unrepentant NeoCon warmonger?

    Did you notice that several of her first columns after landing here in April 2020 included anti-Chinese smears and scapegoating? This has been toned down since, as she’s been focusing on domestic issues. But I expect she’ll be ready to recruit the next group of Gold Star families when Washington needs her help.

    Don’t be fooled. Mrs. Malkin’s a Buchanan/Derbyshire type, picking at a few of the Right issues but ultimately serving to reinforce the Exceptional! policies of Uncle Sam and the Establishment.

I thank her for sticking her neck out. I have yet to discover anyone with a national audience who is perfect. Let me know who you’ve turned up.

  29. We should ban all Muslim immigration into America. They are fundamentally incompatible with the West and even though some first generation Muslims might be ok their offspring usually feel alienated and become sympathetic with Muslim extremist movements.

    There should be no Afghan refugees but any that come should be resettled in Martha’s Vineyard, San Francisco, and any communities where lots of lefties and FBI agents live. Instead they will be relocated to places in flyover country where lefties never go and to change the demographics so that red districts and states eventually turn blue.

    Trump is advocating for the resettlement of thousands of refugees so I say we put as many in Mar-A-Lago as possible if that’s what the orange retard really wants.

  35. A factor regarding Afghan employability is that the U.S. already has a surplus leaf blower operators etc. and more are arriving every day. So forget about Afghan migrant employability. The US will not even be like Germany, where something like half of refugees find jobs within five years. So, what about the next generation? Here in S. California, the second generation of Asian immigrants entered the middle class and professional class. My proficient, conscientious, fastidious dentist, for example. Afghans will not likely repeat this, due to differences in culture and intelligence.

    Bleeding heart Democrats and Biden-bashing Republicans are both tripping over themselves to virtue signal over the sight of desperate Afghans clamoring into helicopters and planes to get out their Godforsaken mess of a country.
     
    I think you are generously misinterpreting their motives, Mrs. Malkin, at least for the D's. Their hearts aren't bleeding. They are out to destroy this country via the immigration invasion on many fronts. The legal route via the Steve-Sailer-dubbed "Invade-the-World/Invite-the-World/In-Hoc-to-the World" is just one big part of this strategy.

    Bleeding hearts? Nah, bile-leaking gall bladders is probably a better term, as this crowd leaks nasty poisonous bile in print as they hate on traditional American society.

    As a commenter with the apt handle "Citizen of a Silly Country" wrote recently, they hate us and want us dead. We really need to take that to heart. As for Peak Stupidity, we realize that the followers of the ctrl-left are nothing different from those resentful ones of old - "None Dare Call them Communists".*

  38. (((Endless wars = endless refugees.))) Yep. We have seen what this has done to Europe. Lets see here, destabilize the Middle East, take Arab/Muslim refugees who will now hate America and the Western World even more due to being blasted, put them in America and the West and you have a recipe for disaster. So who benefits from all of this? Certainly not White Christian America or White Christian Europe, hell even atheistic Whites don’t benefit. Hmm, now who would be the beneficiary of this chaos?

    “Europe must learn to be multicultural.” (((Babs Spectre.))) Helluva last name for this witch/bitch.

    Funny thing is Europe was always multicultural, the most multicultural place on the planet and the most diverse but it was WHITE.

    Multicultural and multiracial are two different things, Babs. Babs doesn’t wish the same thing for her beloved Israel though.

    Some days I wonder if Ms. Malkin would deport her own parents. After all, although Ms Malkin has birthright citizenship by virtue of being born in Philadelphia. Her parents were from another country and not US citizens when Ms Malkin was born. The best argument against allowing Afghan refugees in is that they are corrupt and cowardly. As President Biden said in his Monday speech, the Afghans basically put down their weapons and failed to defend their government against the Taliban. The deeper question is should the Taliban prosecute "collaborators" for war crimes and should the US shelter them from such prosecution. Ironic, won' t it be, that the US invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban were sheltering Osama Bin Laden from US prosecution (or years in Gitmo and a good waterboarding).

    That’s a very Jewish way of thinking. Would you happen to be a fan (or fellow tribesman) of Jennifer Mendelsohn, who rose to ‘fame’ with her Resistance Genealogy—obsessively researching the family tree of any (almost always White) public figure who dared oppose open borders, tweeting out what she thought were “gotcha” tidbits about immigrant ancestors—as if having immigrant ancestors means you must now support open borders to unlimited immigrants from every corner of the globe.

    There’s a 100% chance you have an ancestor who was a thief, a rapist, robber, murderer…it would be hypocritical to oppose rape, robbery, murder!

    Jews are literally the only group who think like that, perceiving any immigration restriction as a personal attack on them to militantly oppose, even generations after their own ancestors immigrated (perhaps due to being the only group that’s been expelled from 100+ countries) while every other group has gotten over it and assimilated into being American rather than perpetually identifying with outsider ancestors.

    In 2020 Democrats learned the hard way from Trump’s 10pt gain, especially in Florida and Texas, that despite endless shrieks of “racism” and “xenophobia”, even Hispanic voters are starting to shed the notion that proposing to limit the flow of new immigrants who happen to speak Spanish is not a personal attack on Hispanic citizens already here.

    Among immigrant demographics from Europe, no other ethnic group in America even thinks of “how would this theoretically affect my grandparents at Ellis Island a century ago” when determining what is the best course for U.S. immigration policy in the 21st century, in the interests of the American people who live here today.

    Cheap labor is where you find it.

    Interesting that allowing Afghanistan to fall and then opening us up to (unlimited?) immigration of Afghani refugees - most of which were never on our side, and many of which are certainly either Taliban or Taliban-sympathizers (you don't think we will check, do you?) - this coincides with a de-facto opening of the southern borders to third-world refugees.

    Afghanistan has the highest fertility rate outside of Africa, they breed like rodents, their numbers double end redouble, the problem there is not lack of 'democracy', but brutal crushing poverty.

    Just pack them in. Drive wages down and rents and profits up.

    Per the media we have a worker shortage. The reasons why are myriad but suffice to say higher wages usually attracts more and better applicants. But that’s not really happening and certain sectors ( fast food, delivery, uber, etc. ) are never going to pay a living wage.

    Enter the feds and compliments of the biden regime we have replacement work forces arriving daily: Haitians, Mexicans, Central Americans, and now Africans and Afghans. It won’t be long before everyone notices who’s doing the “Infrastructure” jobs our crooked politicians are cooking up.

    None of this is good. No thanks to a toxic and incompetent school system we produce more deadbeats ( see Oregon’s lower standards ). Thanks to endless welfare these people don’t have to work anymore to afford their threadbare lives of low esteem and lower expectations.

    These deadbeats may be dumb, but they’re not stupid. They know exactly who make their lazy lives possible—-the democrat party.
