15 million votes in 2020 election not accounted for, report finds https://t.co/cegYXakQD5— WND News (@worldnetdaily) August 19, 2021
In Maricopa County, 110,000 ballots sent to outdated addresses, Biden won by 10,000
The report found that 1.1 million mail-in ballots were undeliverable for various reasons. Election officials rejected another 560,814 mail-in ballots.
Another 14.7 million mailed ballots met an “unknown” fate, the report says.
Democrats in Congress back expansion of mail-in voting in legislation known as HR 1 and S1, dubbed the For the People Act, which also would allow the controversial practice of ballot harvesting, ban most voter ID laws, and restrict states in maintaining voter rolls.
“Bills like HR 1/ S 1 risk inflating these numbers even further, pushing our election system toward error, disenfranchisement, and ultimately widespread doubt about election outcomes,” said Adams, who was previously a Justice Department lawyer. “Some of the counties with the least experience in administering mail voting rejected the most ballots nationwide. If continued, 2020-style chaos will become the norm.”

As chaos in Afghanistan continues, liberal magazine The Atlantic had a brutal takedown of "Joe Biden's long list of betrayals." https://t.co/RJpHalQsNy— MediaResearchCenter (@theMRC) August 19, 2021
...Citing Biden's supposed deep concern for justice, Wehner seethed, "Just don’t tell that to the girls, women, and other frightened souls in Afghanistan who, thanks to a decision made by Joseph R. Biden Jr., are about to enter the gates of hell."
Wehner's assessment of Biden is now quite harsh bordering on brutal. However, to fully appreciate Wehner's newfound disgust with Biden, we need to contrast it with his paean to Biden written on November 2, 2020, the day before the election in which he declared that "Biden May Be Just the Person America Needs."
But oh how times have changed. Wehner which has changed from absurd adoration to complete disgust with Biden in his latest article.

Biden didn't have a campaign for president. He just sat in his basement.
The media ran his campaign. They spent the news cycle 24/7 bashing Trump and extolling President Ice Cream Cone Flavor.
Biden is a media-made mediocrity.
Wonder why Kamala Harris is totally missing in action? She is already thinking about the next Presidential candidate debate where she will be asked about Afghanistan fiasco. She will probably claim that Biden did not involve her since she had a differing view.— Ram (@ramprasad_c) August 18, 2021

“But can we trust the Taliban on women’s rights?” has been a favorite question of journalists. The answer used to be “no”; the answer now is it doesn’t matter.

When the president did finally speak, he read from a teleprompter for 20 minutes, took no questions, and barely acknowledged that he had assured Americans, at the beginning of July, that no part of this disaster would unfold this way. The lone admission was a vague, passive-voice, “this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated,” a strong nominee for the Disingenuous Public Relations Spin Hall of Fame.
Biden instead relitigated the decision to withdraw from Afghanistan. He made no defense of how that withdrawal is proceeding, because in large part, it is indefensible.

Observing the various headlines making the rounds about the collapse of the Afghan government and the fall of Kabul to the Taliban, Ferullo grows despondent, referring to the “Beltway reporting” on this story as “a disservice to Americans.” And that, the author explains, is the primary problem with the aforementioned Beltway reporting. Reporters quickly make every story about Washington politics rather than the underlying substance of the story.
So what’s wrong with the reporting we’ve been seeing in the past three days? According to the author, everyone covering the story is framing the collapse of the government of Afghanistan in terms of how it will impact Joe Biden. He assembles a rather lengthy list of headlines and cable news chyrons as evidence. These include descriptions of how Joe Biden now faces “political peril,” as well as how this will all result in a “grim reckoning” for the President. He notes a cable news chyron blaring, “Afghanistan’s Rapid Unravelling Threatens Biden’s Legacy.”

One reason the latest crop of Woke Generals is so scary is that we just watched the brass guzzle "Religion of Peace" Kool-Aid for 20 years until it was incapable of understanding that the Taliban is seriously committed to its religious beliefs, and will kill and die for them.— John Hayward (@Doc_0) August 17, 2021
This is unacceptable. We have reports of Taliban checkpoints around Kabula and videos of them shooting at civilians outside the airport. The US needs to find a way to guarantee these people's safe passage to the airport. https://t.co/Pl9sUdUVaQ— Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) August 17, 2021
The Afghan military was a fraction of the size claimed by Biden last month. Its troops were unpaid and often unfed. Some were "ghost soldiers" invented to steal payroll money. They didn't have enough skilled hands to use the vast armory we gave them.https://t.co/92QSFgMSA2— John Hayward (@Doc_0) August 17, 2021
