    Due to the confusion when leaving Afghanistan, some talibans (at least 5) made it to France. Also one made it to the UK. There is no report concerning other countries, but they probably have some talibans in their countries too now, including the US of course.

    Not sure how to feel about this. As someone wrote on twitter: German has a word for journalistic groveling: "Hofberichterstattung".

    Day 218: "Communications within."


    1/ Roughly 89% of the funds from the Emergency Rental Assistance Program have not been distributed, according to the Treasury Department. Just $1.7 billion of the $46.5 billion in funds intended to prevent eviction were disbursed as of July. Meanwhile, the White House is bracing for a Supreme Court decision that could strike down its eviction moratorium. (New York Times)

    2/ The Supreme Court ruled that the Biden administration must comply with a ruling ordering it to restart Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for asylum seekers. Under the program, thousands of asylum seekers were sent to wait outside U.S. territory while their claims were processed in immigration courts. (Washington Post)


    3/ The House committee investigating the Capitol riot requested documents from several U.S. agencies related to the attack, signaling that they intend to conduct a sprawling investigative effort. The committee demanded records related to at least 30 members of Trump’s inner circle and plans to seek executive branch records related to the attack and its run-up — including “communications within and among the White House and Executive Branch agencies” on and before Jan. 6. (CNN / CNBC / Politico)


    4/ The Secret Service warned Capitol Police about violent threats the day before the Jan. 6 attack. The documents shed further light on the intelligence failures by the Capitol Police in the days before the riot. Capitol Police were warned that their officers could face violence at the hands of supporters of former President Trump. (Politico)


    5/ Biden received an inconclusive classified intelligence report on the origin of COVID-19. The report could not confirm whether the pathogen jumped from an animal to a human as part of a natural process, or escaped from a lab in central China. The intelligence community will seek within days to declassify elements of the report for potential public release, officials said. (Washington Post)


    6/ The FCC proposed a $5.1 million fine against conservative activists for making unlawful robocalls that made false claims about mail-in voting. The calls lied about mail voting in the run-up to the 2020 election. It is the largest robocall fine ever proposed by the FCC for violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. (NBC News / Associated Press)



    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...08/27/day-220/

    Day 220: "The mission will go on."


    1/ The death toll from the bombing attack at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan rose to 169 Afghans and 13 U.S. service members, a number that could increase as authorities examine fragmented remains. Thursday’s bombing — blamed on Afghanistan’s offshoot of the Islamic State group, an enemy of both the Taliban and the West — marked one of the most lethal terror attacks the country has seen. The U.S. said it was the deadliest day for American forces in Afghanistan since 2011. (Associated Press / CNN)

    2/ Biden vowed to complete the U.S. evacuation of Afghanistan and hunt down ISIS leaders after the attack in Kabul. “We will rescue Americans, we will get our Afghan allies, and the mission will go on,” Biden said from the White House. “America will not be intimidated.” (CNBC)


    3/ Seven Capitol Police officers are suing Trump and members of far-right extremist groups and political organizations of plotting to disrupt the peaceful transition of power during the Capitol riot on Jan. 6. The suit, which took a broad view of the riot’s origins, was the latest effort to hold former President Donald J. Trump accountable for the Capitol attack. (New York Times / CNBC)


    4/ The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s COVID-related eviction moratorium in an eight-page, unsigned opinion. The decision puts hundreds of thousands of tenants at risk of losing shelter, while the administration struggles to speed the flow of billions of dollars in federal funding to people who are behind in rent because of the coronavirus pandemic and its associated economic hardship. (CNN / New York Times)


    5/ A Florida judge blocked Gov. Ron DeSantis’ order banning mask mandates. Leon County Circuit Judge John C. Cooper ruled that DeSantis overstepped his authority when he issued an executive order banning such mandates. (Associated Press)

    Day 223: "The forever war."


    1/ The U.S. completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan, effectively ending the longest war in American history and fulfilling Biden’s pledge to end what he called the “forever war.” The evacuation operation at Kabul’s international airport also ended. Control of the airport was left in the hands of the Taliban. More than 2,400 U.S. troops were killed, including 13 in the past week, during the 20-year war that George W. Bush launched to overthrow the Taliban, who had harbored the al Qaeda terrorists responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, said a number of American citizens in “the very low hundreds” were left behind, and that he believes they will still be able to leave the country. The U.S., however, is not expected to have any further diplomatic or military presence in the country. (Associated Press / Wall Street Journal / NBC News / New York Times / Washington Post / Bloomberg)

    2/ The U.S. averaged more than 100,000 Covid-19 hospitalizations a day over the last week – the highest seven-day average since mid-January when nearly 140,000 people were hospitalized. (New York Times)


    3/ The Education Department opened five civil rights investigations into statewide school mask bans in Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. The department’s Office for Civil Rights will examine whether the policies in the five Republican-led states violate the rights of students with disabilities. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona accused the states of “putting politics over the health and education of the students they took an oath to serve,” calling the policies “simply unacceptable.” (Washington Post / Politico / New York Times / Associated Press)


    4/ The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot plans to ask telecommunications companies to preserve the phone records of several Republican lawmakers who participated in the “Stop the Steal” rally, which served as a prelude to the Capitol insurrection. The list is reportedly still evolving, but currently includes Reps. Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks, Madison Cawthorn, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Jody Hice, and Scott Perry. Last week, the committee demanded records from federal officials and Trump allies and staffers, including some of Trump’s family members. (CNN / NBC News)

    For...?

    Remember, you can't impeach someone just because you want to or because they did something you didn't like. Not even just because they screwed up. They have to actually have committed an impeachable offense of some kind, like wiretapping the headquarters of a political opponent, lying to Congress, threatening another country for dirt on a political rival, or kick-starting an insurrection. If you could be impeached for mistakes, however big or small, Trump would never have been impeached only twice.

    More seriously, and I apologize because I know this will sound callous, but I can't really find it in myself to get especially angry at Biden, even for his errors. Not when I know that the alternative would have been Trump dealing with the same scenario.

    Case in point:
    Trump Reveals His Master Plan for Afghanistan: We Should’ve ‘Let It Rot’
    https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-...or-afghanistan

    An exerpt.
    Donald Trump has had a lot to say about how Joe Biden has mishandled the withdrawal from Afghanistan—but, when given the chance to explain what he would have done differently, Trump’s master plan boiled down to leaving the country in smouldering ruins before leaving it forever.

    The ex-president appeared on Fox Business on Tuesday morning to get some things off his chest a day after the last U.S. troops left Afghanistan. During a curious rant about how he believes unnamed shadowy forces are controlling Biden, Trump shared his alternative withdrawal plans.

    “It’s something that’s rather incredible,” he said. “They [the people supposedly controlling Biden] do horrible things, vicious things. They cheat, steal, lie. But they can’t do a simple withdrawal from a country that we should never have gone into in the first place... We should have hit that country years ago, hit it them really hard, and then let it rot.”

    The former president was repeatedly thrown softball questions about how he would’ve handled the situation if he hadn’t lost the election. However, he repeatedly failed to give any answers of substance, merely saying that he would’ve won the war in Afghanistan if only he’d had a few more months.

    “He [Biden] handed them a country on a silver platter,” said Trump. “He ought to apologize and stop trying to, excuse the language, bullshit everybody into thinking that what he did was good. We should have withdrawn but we should have withdrawn in a totally different way, with great dignity. It would have been a tremendous win for us.”

    Again, he didn’t elaborate on what “totally different way” would have resulted in the “tremendous win” despite being asked for details.

    While Trump repeatedly tried to criticize Biden for the failings in the U.S. evacuations from Kabul, he also laid into the thousands of desperate evacuees. With zero evidence, Trump claimed Afghan evacuees who have arrived in the U.S. include “many terrorists” and “criminal rapists.”

    Needlessly linking the situation back to one of his presidential obsessions, Trump added: “The level of incompetence on this withdrawal is even far greater than the level of incompetence at the southern border.”

    For Trump scheduling a leaving date and making a deal with Taliban?

    Or for Afghanistan rolling over without any fight in under two weeks?

    Biden hasn't done a great job but its not exactly like he set this in motion. Blame on this one can go to all the presidents back to Bush.

    Well, they stole TWO judges, and forced out a third that was a little more neutral before he was ready to leave, but basically yes.

    In this case they don't even have to do anything. By doing *nothing* the law passes within its state. Texas is ding a fine job fucking itself up.

    (Hopefully between the cold and heat power grid failures, and the plague, and everything else, Texas will finally vote blue next time but...)

    An Austin judge has held it for now, but that just means that yes, it will end up going higher up.

    And the new lady who can't even identify the constitutional ammendments, is on record saying she'd go against Roe if it came up. SO.

    Sorry Robby people simply want to know about Trump and Mike Lidell’s attempt to reinstall him as president while tripping all over themselves to blame Biden for turning his back on the Afghan people eventhough their president and their military did were and that Trump and Mike Pompeo were chiefly responsible for the current situation.

    Why should people care about a stupid law that in addition to endangering privacy would leave poor and low income females without the means of getting an abortion forcing them to have kids they don’t want and would potentially endanger their lives?

    Between COVID, Afghanistan, hurricanes, and Texas just Texas this feels like the shittiest news cycle in a long time.

    It's also super frustrating to see news coverage about Afghanistan when local issues like this Supreme Court decision are happening. I feel like a lot of important societal securities are falling apart and no one is doing anything.

    Edit: Oh also a giant hurricane caused freak weather in parts of the U.S that normally don't get floods and tornadoes. So there's that too.

    So Biden is putting out a six-part plan to combat COVID and do a vaccination campaign, because as he said, "Our patience is wearing thin". Then some Republican governors threaten to fight it in court, and Biden has a great reply:

    The last couple days' What the Fuck Just Happened Todays:

    Day 237: "There's no way."

    1/ House Democrats outlined their proposed tax increases on corporations and wealthy people to help offset the costs of Biden’s $3.5 trillion economic plan. The House Ways and Means Committee plan calls for raising the corporate tax rate to 26.5% from 21%, a 3-percentage-point surcharge on individual income above $5 million, and raising the capital gains tax from 20% to 25%. White House spokesman Andrew Bates said the proposal “meets two core goals the President laid out at the beginning of this process: it does not raise taxes on Americans earning under $400,000 and it repeals the core elements of the Trump tax giveaways for the wealthy and corporations that have done nothing to strengthen our country’s economic health.” (Wall Street Journal / Politico / CNBC / Bloomberg)

    2/ Joe Manchin – again – said he will not support the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package to expand the nation’s social safety net, which includes investments in climate change, health care, taxes, and education. “I cannot support $3.5 trillion,” Manchin said, citing his opposition to the proposed increase in the corporate tax rate. Chuck Schumer “will not have my vote on the 3.5,” Manchin said, adding “there’s no way” Congress can meet the Sept. 27 deadline set by Nancy Pelosi for passage. Manchin added: “It’s going to be $1, $1.5 [trillion]. We don’t know where it’s going to be. It’s not going to be at $3.5 [trillion], I can assure you.” Democrats need all 50 votes to pass the budget reconciliation package. Kyrsten Sinema, another moderate Democrat, has also expressed concern over the cost of the bill. (CNN / ABC News / Associated Press / USA Today / Bloomberg / Politico / NBC News)


    3/ A group of leading U.S. and international scientists suggested that Covid-19 vaccine booster shots are “not appropriate at this stage in the pandemic.” The international group of scientists, which include some at the FDA and the WHO, concluded that “boosting” the vaccinated population doesn’t outweigh the benefit of using those doses to immunize the billions of unvaccinated people worldwide. “None of the studies has provided credible evidence of substantially declining protection against severe disease,” the authors wrote, noting there could be side-effects if boosters are introduced too soon or too broadly. The group did, however, say that booster shots may eventually be needed for the general population if vaccine-induced immunity wanes or a new variant emerges that can evade the body’s immune response. Several recent studies published by the CDC suggest that the vaccines hold steady against severe illness, including the Delta variant. The Biden administration, meanwhile, has proposed administering vaccine boosters eight months after the initial shots starting Sept. 20. A committee of FDA advisers is scheduled to meet on Friday to review the data. (New York Times / CNBC / Bloomberg / Politico)


    4/ The U.S. ranks last among the world’s seven wealthiest democracies in Covid-19 vaccination rate. About 62% of Americans have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. Canada leads the G7 countries in vaccination rates, with almost 75% of its population at least partially vaccinated, followed by France (73%), Italy (72%), UK (71%), Germany (66%), and Japan (63%). The U.S. ranks sixth out of the Group of 7 nations, however, for fully vaccinated people – about 53%. (New York Times)


    5/ George W. Bush compared the Jan. 6 Capitol rioters to international extremists, warning that they are “children of the same foul spirit.” In a speech marking the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Bush said the U.S. has seen “growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within.” Bush added that “it is our continuing duty to confront them.” Trump, meanwhile, called Bush “a failed and uninspiring [president]” who shouldn’t be “lecturing” Americans about the threat posed by domestic terrorism. Separately, Capitol Police plan to install temporary fencing around the Capitol ahead of a planned right-wing rally on Sept. 18. The “Justice for J6” rally is being organized by a former Trump campaign staffer in support of the jailed Jan. 6 rioters. (CNN / Washington Post / CBS News)


    6/ Capitol Police arrested a man armed with multiple knives, a bayonet, and a machete near the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington. Donald Craighead told Capitol Police he was “on patrol” and began talking about white supremacist ideology and other rhetoric pertaining to white supremacy. His pickup truck also had a swastika and other White supremacist symbols painted on it. (ABC News / CNN)


    poll/ 51% of Americans support coronavirus vaccination mandates for everyday activities, while 49% call vaccination mandates an unacceptable infringement on personal rights. (CNN)



    Day 239: "Democracy can be sloppy."

    1/ The Justice Department asked a federal judge to block enforcement of a new Texas law that effectively bans almost all abortions. The Justice Department argued that the state adopted the law, which took effect this month after the Supreme Court refused to block its enforcement, “gravely and irreparably impaired women’s ability to exercise their constitutional right to an abortion across the State.” The 45-page emergency motion comes after the Biden administration sued Texas last week, asserting that the law – which allows private citizens to file civil lawsuits against anyone who helps a woman terminate her pregnancy – was passed in “open defiance of the Constitution.” (New York Times / Washington Post / CNN / Reuters)

    2/ The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff called China twice in the final months of the Trump administration to reassure them that Trump had no plans to attack China, according to “Peril,” a new book by the Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. “Things may look unsteady,” Gen. Mark Milley told his counterpart, Gen. Li Zuocheng of China, on Jan. 8 – two days after Trump’s supporters attacked the Capitol to try to stop the certification of his election loss. “But that’s the nature of democracy, General Li. We are 100% steady. Everything’s fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes.” Milley was also reportedly so concerned that Trump could “go rogue” that he convened a secret meeting later that day with senior military officials to remind them that “the strict procedures are explicitly designed to avoid inadvertent mistakes or accident or nefarious, unintentional, illegal, immoral, unethical launching of the world’s most dangerous weapons.” He added: “And I’m part of that procedure.” Following the revelations, Trump called for “Dumbass” Milley to be “arrested” for “treason.” The White House, meanwhile, said Biden has “complete confidence” in Milley. (New York Times / Washington Post / CNN)


    3/ A federal judge denied Trump’s request to stop E. Jean Carroll’s defamation lawsuit against him from moving forward. The ruling allows for the case to proceed as an appeals court weighs whether Trump is immune from the suit. Carroll alleges Trump assaulted her in the Bergdorf Goodman department store in 1995 or 1996 and then defamed her by calling her a liar when she went public with her claims in 2019. Trump and the Justice Department have argued Trump can’t be sued because the comments were made while he was president. (Bloomberg / CNN / CNBC)


    4/ The number of Americans living in poverty fell to a record low last year due to the pandemic relief aid Congress enacted. The U.S. Census Bureau reported poverty fell to 9.1% in 2020 – the lowest rate on record – from 11.8% in 2019. The Census Bureau estimated that the direct checks lifted 11.7 million people out of poverty last year, while unemployment benefits and food assistance prevented an additional 10.3 million people from falling into poverty. (Reuters / NBC News / Washington Post / New York Times)


    5/ 1 in 500 Americans have died from Covid-19 in the 19 months since the nation’s first reported coronavirus infection. As of Tuesday night, 663,913 total people in the U.S. had died of Covid-19. The country averaged 1,805 new Covid-19 deaths each day over the past week. About 62% of Americans have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine – last among the world’s seven wealthiest democracies. (CNN / Washington Post)


    6/ The FDA declined to endorse Pfizer’s Covid-19 booster shot, saying the vaccines currently approved provide sufficient protection against severe disease and death from Covid-19 without the need of additional doses. The FDA vaccine advisory committee is scheduled to review the report on Friday and recommend whether or not the agency should approve Pfizer’s application for a coronavirus booster shot. The Biden administration, meanwhile, wants to begin offering booster shots to the general public starting next week, pending authorization from the FDA. The U.S. has purchased a combined one billion doses from Pfizer and Moderna. (New York Times / Wall Street Journal / Politico / CNBC)


    poll/ 68% of Americans say the recent rise in Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. was preventable, while 24% say it was not preventable. 51% disapprove of Biden’s plan to mandate Covid-19 vaccines, while 48% approve. (Quinnipiac)


    poll/ 56% of Americans feel that democracy in the U.S. is under attack, 37% say it’s being tested, and 6% American democracy is not in danger. 51% say it’s likely that elected officials will successfully overturn the results of a future election because their party didn’t win, while 49% say that is unlikely. (CNN)


    poll/ 42% of Americans approve the job Biden is doing as president, while 50% disapprove. (Quinnipiac)
