US, Taliban Sign Deal Aimed at Ending War in Afghanistan

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — The United States signed a peace agreement with Taliban militants on Saturday aimed at bringing an end to 18 years of bloodshed in Afghanistan and allowing U.S. troops to return home from America’s longest war.

Under the agreement, the U.S. would draw its forces down to 8,600 from 13,000 in the next 3-4 months, with the remaining U.S. forces withdrawing in 14 months. The complete pullout, however, would depend on the Taliban meeting their commitments to prevent terrorism.

President George W. Bush ordered the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Some U.S. troops currently serving there had not yet been born when the World Trade Center collapsed on that crisp, sunny morning that changed how Americans see the world.

It only took a few months to topple the Taliban and send Osama bin Laden and top al-Qaida militants scrambling across the border into Pakistan, but the war dragged on for years as the United States tried establis…

The Washington Department of Health on Saturday confirmed the first U.S. coronavirus-related death, according to a press release.

The person lived in King County, which includes Seattle, according to the Washington Department of Health, KIRO 7 reported.

Washington state health officials will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. PST Saturday to give details.

“Health officials will be providing the latest updates regarding novel coronavirus cases in King County, including new people identified with the infection, one of whom died,” according to a news release issued by the state Department of Health and Public Health Seattle-King County on Saturday morning.

“It is a sad day in our state as we learn that a Washingtonian has died from COVID-19,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to his family and friends. We will continue to work toward a day where no one dies from this virus.”

He added: “We are strengthening our preparedness and response …

U.S. Shuts Border Bridge to Stop Migrants Rushing Across From Mexico

CIUDAD JUAREZ/EL PASO (Reuters) - U.S. authorities said they closed the busy Ciudad Juarez-El Paso border bridge on Friday after more than a hundred mostly Cuban migrants tried to cross in response to a court ruling suspending an asylum policy.

Earlier, an appeals court ruled to block one of President Donald Trump's signature immigration policies the administration says has helped to curb migration on the southern border and forced tens of thousands to wait in Mexico.

Word of the news spread on social media and a Reuters witness saw migrants on the Mexican side of the border heading towards the bridge while some U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers were putting on riot gear.

"I've been waiting in Juarez for ten months," said one Cuban asylum seeker, who declined to give his name. "I don't care how long I have to wait here for them to let us through."

CBP confirmed on its Twitter account that it had closed the Paso Del …

Ninth Circuit Reopens Border, Blocks Donald Trump’s ‘Return to Mexico’ Policy

The ACLU has persuaded three judges in the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to block the hugely successful ‘Migrant Protection Protocols’ border policy, even though the policy has played a critical role in reducing the inflow of migrants.

The same panel also declared that border agents must process claims for asylum made by migrants who are caught trying to sneak over the border fence far from the formal Ports of Entry.
John Sandweg told Axios.com:
The timing couldn’t be much worse for the Administration,” according to President Barack Obama’s ICE director. “If this decision is going to trigger increased flows at the border, the coming months are the time of year when you would expect to see a spike in the numbers.” The two decisions — if accepted by a large panel of judges and by the Supreme Court — punch a nationwide hole through the border rules. The decisions will help the cartels, coyotes, and worldwide migrants to again cooperatively overwhelm U.S. border …

Donald Trump Jr.: Hold to Your Second Amendment Rights ‘At All Costs’

Image
By AWR HAWKINS

During a CPAC interview with the NRA, Donald Trump, Jr. warned that the left is gunning for our liberties and urged Americans to hold to their Second Amendment rights “at all costs.”

His words come as prominent Democrat presidential hopefuls Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Mike Bloomberg are all running on changing the legal landscape to allow gun manufacturers to be sued for the misuse of their products.

On February 24, 2020, Biden called out gun manufacturers, warned that he was coming for them, and added, “I’m going to take you down.”

At the state level, Democrats in Virginia pushed for an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, AR-15 registration, universal background checks, a ban on suppressors, and gun rationing, among other things. In Arizona, Breitbart News reported that Democrat state Senators pushed SB 1925, which would require AR-15 owners to register their weapons with the government or hand them over.

The examples of the Democrat frontrunner…

Army Won’t Follow Marine Corps Lead and Rename Confederate Bases

Image
From The ArmyTimes

The Army has no plans to mirror an order by the Marine Corps commandant instructing his subordinates to remove Confederate-related paraphernalia from bases across the world, according to the service.
The Marine Corps’ decision comes the same month as a congressional hearing discussed the rise of white nationalism and extremism in the military, an issue closely tied with the presence of Confederate monuments, flags and naming conventions.
“We have no plans to rename any street or installation, including those named for Confederate generals,” an Army spokesperson said.
The Army operates 10 installations named after Confederate military commanders, including Fort Lee in Virginia, Fort Hood in Texas, and Fort Bragg in North Carolina. There are no such installations for the other military departments, according to the Congressional Research Service, though some Navy ships have been named after Confederate officers or battles.
“It is important to note that the naming of …

Military Experts at CPAC Warn China Is Trying to ‘Strangle Us’

Image
By KRISTINA WONG

Experts on China at a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) panel on Thursday sounded the alarm about the Communist nation’s efforts to defeat the United States and without ever having to fire a shot.
The experts on the panel, hosted by the Committee on the Present Danger: China, warned that China is laying the groundwork to replace the U.S. as the world’s superpower, which will have profound implications for Americans.

China expert and author Gordon Chang said China is becoming more belligerent to the U.S. — not less — and is trying to lay the groundwork in China to blame the coronavirus on the United States.

China recently had a famous health expert — a “hero” of fighting the SARS epidemic — raise doubts in China Daily, a Chinese state-run media outlet, that the coronavirus originated in China.

The Chinese Communist government is “laying the theoretical foundation that the U.S. spread disease in their country,” Chang said.

Chang also laid out remarks and a…

There's a Very Good Reason the Media Are Silent About the Milwaukee Mass Shooting

Image
By Andrea Widburg

On Wednesday, an angry ex-employee got a gun, put a silencer on it, went to the MillersCoors facility where he had once worked, and shot five people to death before shooting himself.  One would expect to have a barrage of news stories about America's gun violence problem and the need to ban guns.  After all, on Tuesday, before the shooting happened, the Democrat candidates were all over each other trying to explain why each would be more effective at destroying the Second Amendment.  Instead, we got crickets.

The reason for the media's silence became apparent when the media identified the shooter: 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill was black.  This meant that the media couldn't use its white supremacist narrative to justify grabbing guns.

The narrative broke down even further when social media posts revealed that Ferrill may well have been an Elizabeth Warren–supporter, an assumption arising from the fact that his wife proudly posted a selfie last year at an Eli…

The Mark Levin Show - 2/28/2020

Image
On Friday’s Mark Levin show, can we simultaneously love our children and betray their generation and generations unborn? If you embrace Bernie Sanders and the democrats agenda, how can you love your children yet help to create an environment that will harm them? How much do you love your children when you support a Marxist ideology of a massive expansion of government which will smother the individual? Sanders policies would create an economic wrecking ball. Also, Sanders and the democrats go on and on about hating certain corporations, but no company or corporation has the power of a centralized government. We don’t have to fear corporations, but we do have to fear a centralized tyranny. Our founding fathers believed that liberty wasn’t enough for freedom, its companion is virtue. The Sanders and democrat ideology is virtue less, which is why they come up with schemes to take from you. Later, while President Trump and his team worked to contain the coronavirus, Democrats busied th…
