What a surprise! On Sept. 5, six U.S. commercial planes, loaded with Americans and Afghan translators or waiting to be loaded at Mazar-i-Sharif airport in northern Afghanistan, were blocked from departing by the Taliban. Who, other than President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, could not have foreseen this would happen? Meanwhile, to demonstrate his concern, Biden went on vacation. We have all the makings of a return to the days of the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis.
Big differences exist between the Iranian hostage crisis and the one newly launched by the Taliban. A milquetoast President Jimmy Carter was caught by surprise on Nov. 4, 1979, when a group of militant Iranian students seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans hostage. For the next 444 days, that hostage crisis dominated news headlines, making America look weak and ineffectual. When “the most audacious, difficult, complicated, rescue mission ever attempted,” known as Desert One, ended in disaster and had to be aborted, it did nothing to improve that image. The only reason the crisis ended – on the day President Ronald Reagan took the oath of office – was concern by the mullahs the new U.S. leader would take action.
The Taliban hostage crisis should not have caught our leadership by surprise. It is the natural outcome of what terrorists do when given the opportunity to exercise control due to a weak U.S. administration. The conditions in Afghanistan could not have been better for this to happen. The last U.S. military troops had been withdrawn due to a deadline selected by Biden (after moving it up 11 days from the 20th anniversary of 9/11), making a complete U.S. citizen evacuation impossible.
While we knew exactly how many U.S. citizens were being held hostage in Tehran, we have absolutely no clue what the number in Afghanistan is. But, if the six planes blocked from departing are an indication, way more Americans have been left behind than the low-ball number of “around 100” claimed by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain on Sept. 5. That is supported as well by a recent report the Taliban may allow at least 200 Americans to depart.
Klain added, “We are going to find ways to get them – the ones that want to leave – to get them out of Afghanistan. …” Common sense tells us it would have been a lot simpler to “find ways to get them out” had Biden taken a firm stand against the Taliban while we still had assets in the country, dictating terms to them for the evacuation of American citizens rather than allowing the Taliban now to dictate those terms to us. Suggesting we “find ways to get them out” is ridiculous as Biden admits we have no resources even allowing us to get our six airplanes now trapped at Mazar-i-Sharif airport out of the country.
Whatever Americans remain in Afghanistan will probably not be incarcerated to leave us guessing. If so, they will be left to fend for themselves, attempting to befriend locals, reluctant to help them for fear of Taliban retribution.
Muslims are well aware the Quran explicitly mandates they not embrace infidels as friends per the teachings of Prophet Muhammad who was very skeptical of inter-faith friendships. Thus, Afghan Muslims will keep to themselves, avoiding any kind of entanglement with non-believers. It is this same belief that has led Muslims residing in the West to create their infamous “no-go” zones in which not even local police dare venture. There should be no doubt the Taliban will enforce such Quranic mandates severely as evidenced by already executing an Afghan singer – after first having tea with him – for violating Islam’s prohibition against music.
It benefits the Taliban to leave us guessing as to the number of Americans left behind to limit our options in getting them out. It is also why they will refrain from holding them in a single or multiple groups as it would enhance planning for a rescue effort.
While the Taliban may well use a limited number of hostages to put the spotlight on America’s weakness in the eyes of the world community, the question arises as to the price they will extract for ultimately releasing them all. The situation at Mazar-i-Sharif airport may provide us some insight on this.
But the Taliban sure do not need spending money, having seized hundreds of millions of dollars in cash left behind by U.S. and Afghan government forces. Nor do they need military weapons and equipment as they are now better equipped than ever before due to what we left behind intact – some of it already spotted in Iran. Nor do they need any kind of investment plan for future income as they now control a country meeting 90% of the world’s opium demand. But they recognize they now have the opportunity, as did the Iranians over four decades ago, to rub America’s nose in it for as long as they so choose.
The only sounds heard from the White House on the hostage situation are sounds of silence. Although Biden tells us Afghanistan is now old news, callously suggesting it is time to put it behind us, families who have managed to escape, sharing their harrowing experiences of fleeing to the sound of gunfire, will find it much more difficult for them and their traumatized children to put behind them.
If Biden intends to put Afghanistan behind him, the Taliban will complicate that effort for the near future. Families of hostages will not allow him to do so either. What will be interesting to see, however, is whether a largely pro-Biden media follow the president’s advice. They should find the current news blackout ordered by the White House most disturbing. Meanwhile, Biden has reportedly instilled the fear of God in the Taliban by declaring the hostages’ release will be achieved diplomatically rather than militarily.
The bottom line is Biden’s ineptness has created a complex hostage crisis of his own making. It remains to be seen if it is one that will plague America for the rest of his term or not. Should the Taliban choose to draw it out that long, we are looking at yet one more nail in the coffin of a one-term presidency.
Plandemic, Voter Fraud, Afghanistan: All Parts of The Great Reset
If you still consider “conspiracy theorist” to be a pejorative, you’re not paying enough attention.
What do Covid-19, 2020 (and beyond) election fraud, and our disastrous abandoning of American citizens in Afghanistan have to do with one another? They’re all parts of the globalist plan to usher in a new era of Neo-Marxism in a depopulated world. This is The Great Reset unfolding before our eyes, and the only way we can stop it (other than through constant prayer) is to stand together and spread the truth.
Covid-19’s attachment to The Great Reset is obvious, though we continue to post about it daily. Voter fraud is a bit less obvious but nonetheless easy to recognize when we understand that people like Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron are pushing to “Build Back Better” under the precepts of Neo-Marxism.
The Afghanistan betrayal in August, 2021, is harder to associate with The Great Reset, but it’s definitely just as attached. We can see this is the unwillingness of the Biden regime to extend the deadline to withdraw despite American lives put clearly in harm’s way. We can see it in the needlessly abandoned military equipment that was conspicuously left intact; disabling a Black Hawk takes minutes but they were given to the Taliban in pristine working condition. Then, there’s the pallets of hundred dollar bills left for them. If you think all of this was just irresponsible governance, you probably think Barack Obama is out of politics, too.
Weakening America’s standing in the world and empowering the Chinese Communist Party and others to engage fully with our enemies in a globalist cabal are beneficial to the architects of The Great Reset, and both happened in one fell swoop in August.
These truths need to be spread. As a conservative network of news outlets, we are swimming upstream against the forces of mainstream media. We are getting canceled across the board by Big Tech. We will continue to spread the truth to millions, but we desperately need help to spread the truth to a wider range of people. This is where you come in.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
Truly Christian. Truly conservative. Buy gold and silver from a company that does not hate your worldview. Kirk Elliott will deliver to your door or help you protect your retirement with “smart money” bullion… no gimmicks or high-pressure sales tactics.
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
