Today on Tommy T’s obsession with the Freeperati – shart-term memory loss edition

Ok people – let’s get suited up and hit the airlock, shall we?

Of course, the Freeperati have been flooding the site with hundreds of posts about Afghanistan, and Joey B. Shark’s cowardice in cutting and running from the country that has (so far) crushed five different countries’ efforts to control it.

That is now.

This was then:

Donald Trump pulls two thousand troops out of Iraq and plans drawdown in Afghanistan in days amid bust-up with top commanders he accused of going to war to enrich defense contractors

Posted on 9/9/2020, 1:59:35 PM by SeekAndFind

The Trump administration announced Wednesday that more than 2,000 troops will be withdrawn from Iraq and the administration is looking to announce a drawdown in Afghanistan in coming days.

CENTCOM Commander Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. said the reduction will go from about 5,200 troops in Iraq to 3,000 and happen this month, which he said will ‘allow us to continue advising and assisting our Iraqi partners in rooting out the final remnants of ISIS in Iraq,’ according to CNN.

Reporters first caught wind of the president’s plan when a senior administration official discussed it with the press pool on Air Force One Tuesday night – and did so on the condition of anonymity.

The planned announcements come as the president has been trying to make the case that he has fulfilled the promises he made four years ago as he tries to secure a second term. Among them: pulling the U.S. out of ‘endless wars.’

It’s hilarious when liberals get mad at Trump for not waging war.

McConnell warns Trump against troop drawdown in Afghanistan

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fired a warning shot Monday against withdrawing more U.S. troops from Afghanistan, even as the Pentagon is preparing an order to do so.

McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, warned that only a “small minority” in Congress would support a rapid drawdown and warned that a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan “would hurt our allies and delight, delight, the people who wish us harm.”

“The consequences of a premature American exit would likely be even worse than President Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq back in 2011. … It would be reminiscent of the humiliating American departure from Saigon in 1975. We’d be abandoning our partners in Afghanistan,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.


The GOP Majority Leader compares POTUS to Obama and the Fall of Saigon?


If anybody was wondering which team McConnell plays for here is your answer. It certainly is not Team USA.

What kinda stupid do you have to be to call pulling troops out of a 17 year no-victory quagmire a “ hasty withdrawal?

Do you want to tell him, or shall I?

Anyway, I don’t have (or want) to show you the hundreds of posts from the last week castigating President Biden as a coward for getting us out of Afghanistan.

These mental defectives have the long-term memory of an avocado plant. Or a dog.

The American people were lied to for decades about Afghanistan by warmongers in both political parties.

Ok, now let’s move on.  How about – FOX TRAITORS!!!!!!

Fox News requires employees to provide vaccination statusThe Hill ^ | 08/19/2021 | Caroline Vakil Posted on 8/19/2021, 6:52:22 PM by Kevin in California

The CEO of Fox News sent a memo to staff on Tuesday including several updates to its COVID-19 protocol, one of which required employees to input their vaccination status.

Back in June, the news outlet issued a memo encouraging fully vaccinated staff to include their vaccination status into Workday. The memo noted at the time that employees who might be vaccinated but had not provided that information to the company would be considered unvaccinated under their policies.

There are Federal requirements coming down the pike. Some of these include double vaccination plus a negative test to fly. Another is allowing insurance companies to charge people more on their premiums for not having the Covid and Influenza vaccines,

I KNEW IT !!!!

as well as companies who do not meet high percentage targets.

Negotiate? False flag this was designed by the swamp to try to keep Afghanistan off the front pages. They could’ve easily take him out with one single bullet to the head. This little drama doesn’t cut the cheese! Don’t ever underestimate what the swamp is capable of doing to take our eyes off the Afghanistan heinous and catastrophic bumbling Situation on a world level.

I’ll let  “Drew68” have the last word:

To: hoe_cake
What a hack piece. I’m gullable(sic), but not gullible enough to believe this guy is a Trump supporter.
I knew he wasn’t a real Trump supporter because he actually went out and did something as opposed to just bitching about it on the internet.


It’s kinda funny. I read over and over again comments like, “One of these days good patriotic Americans are going to take matters into their own hands!”

And then one does and it’s…

  1. Why doesn’t anyone give Trump credit for his “Kung-Flu Crisis Actor Full-Employment Act of 2020”?1??

    Half a million jerbs, and still growing!

    1. When I read his “I knew he wasn’t a real Trump supporter because he actually went out and did something as opposed to just bitching about it on the internet.” , I almost choked on my coffee.

      1. LOL. Although it also means that he thinks that the 1/6 insurrectionists were not real Trump supporters, either.

  2. I know this is not my blog, but I really must say something about the egregious and instant amnesia Freepers are having over Afghanistan. So I’m sharing this thread, because I feel like this total memory loss over Trump’s actions are going to be with us for the next several years. Service members are not supposed to disrespect senior leadership, but these rules were, ahem, “relaxed” under The Former Guy. WildHighlander57 calls it out:

  3. And “HamiltonJay” dared to speak the truth:

    “To: Enlightened1
    They can’t. Well they can, but can be discharged for it.

    That’s true regardless of who the president is.
