Taliban, who the Biden admin say are ‘businesslike,’ hang body from crane, put other bodies in open to see as a ‘lesson’

Published

In spite of recent commendation from the Biden administration, the Taliban seem to be back to ruthless tactics only one month after taking over Afghanistan. Four bodies were put up for the public to see, now Afghans and the world know the Taliban government will rule with violence, and no mercy.

Taliban authorities carried four bodies to the focal square in the western city of Herat, the Associated Press revealed. Three cadavers were shipped to different places of the city out there for anyone to see, as indicated by neighborhood occupant Wazir Ahmad Seddiqi. A group accumulated in the city square to see a bloodied body swung from a crane on Saturday. Reuters detailed that the bloodstained cadaver swinging on the crane had a note stuck to the man’s chest that read, “This is the punishment for kidnapping.”

Taliban authorities asserted that the four men were discovered taking part in an abducting plot prior on Saturday. The supposed suspects were allegedly killed during a gunfight with police. Ziaulhaq Jalali — the Taliban-named police boss in Herat — guaranteed that criminals snatched a dad and child, who were saved. A Taliban militant and a regular citizen were injured during the shootout.

“The aim of this action is to alert all criminals that they are not safe,” a Taliban commander told the AP.

Herat territory’s appointee lead representative Mawlawi Shir Ahmad Muhajir said the public hanging was a “lesson.”

“In order to be a lesson for other kidnappers not to kidnap or harass anyone, we hung them in the squares of the city and made this clear to everyone that anyone who steals or abducts or does any action against our people will be punished,” Muhajir said.

The Daily Wire detailed that Republican Rep. Michael Waltz (Fla.) responded to the horrible picture of the hanging, “America needs to see and understand what brutal terrorist thugs we are dealing with…and that their violence will follow us home.”

Last week, one of the organizers of the Taliban announced that executions and hand removals would return in Afghanistan. Mullah Nooruddin Turabi — who was justice minister and top of the Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice during the Taliban’s past rule — told the Associated Press, “Cutting off of hands is very necessary for security.”

“Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Turabi said. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran.”

State Department representative Ned Price reacted to Turabi’s guarantee of executions and removals by saying the disciplines “would constitute clear gross abuses of human rights.”

“We stand firm with the international community to hold perpetrators of these, of any such abuses, accountable,” Price told journalists on Friday.

Just before, the Biden administration lauded the Taliban for being “businesslike and professional.”

“The Taliban have been cooperative in facilitating the departure of American citizens and lawful permanent residents on charter flights from HKIA,” National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne said on Sept. 9, referring to Kabul’s international airport. “They have shown flexibility, and they have been businesslike and professional in our dealings with them in this effort. This is a positive first step.”

The very day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki affirmed that the Taliban acted “businesslike and professional.” Psaki said the Biden administration worked together with the Taliban on the withdrawal of U.S. citizens and legal residents through flight out of Kabul.

“And in order to get those people out, we had to work with some members of the Taliban to press them and to work in a businesslike manner to get them out,” Psaki said during a press conference.

On Saturday, Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.) alluded to the hanging and posted on Twitter, “Is this who Jen Psaki called ‘businesslike and professional?'”

President Biden says the Pope advised him to continue to take communion and considered him a ‘good Catholic’

Published

President Joe Biden said that Pope Francis let him know he was a “good Catholic” and said he could keep on taking communion regardless of the complaints of numerous U.S. bishops.

Biden made the case after a private gathering with the pontiff at the Vatican on Friday.

“We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion,” Biden said about the gathering.

He added that the topic of abortion didn’t come up in the gathering.

An assertion from the White House showed that Biden said thanks to the Pope for pushing for an “equitable global economic recovery” and for battling global warming.

“Biden thanked His Holiness for his advocacy for the world’s poor and those suffering from hunger, conflict, and persecution,” the assertion added.

The Vatican didn’t affirm Biden’s case in their official statement about their gathering.

Biden’s claim will probably disappoint and outrage many conservative Catholics in the U.S. who have called for communion to be declined to politicians who stand behind abortion, which is in opposition to Catholic church teaching.

The issue will be taken up by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops following upon a vote during their June plenary meeting to address it generally. After Biden met with the Pope, they delivered an assertion saying that they would not single out a particular legislator if they vote to say something about the issue.

The Pope had recently reacted to the contention by approaching the diocesans to try not to politicize the congregation’s most elevated holy observance, which would transform it into a “source of discord rather than unity within the episcopate and the larger church in the United States.”

Gold Star father tears into Biden over supposed arrangement to give large installments to illegal migrant families

Gold Star father David Horton slammed President Joe Biden in a meeting Sunday, scrutinizing the Biden organization’s accounted for plan to convey huge financial installments to some migrant families.

The Wall Street Journal announced last week about the arrangement to pay migrant families affected by previous President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance illegal immigration policies.

The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.

Among the issues pundits have raised with the arrangement, the greatest is that non-citizens remain to get additional cash from the U.S. government than gold star families if the arrangement becomes reality.

As of now, the U.S. government pays the group of fallen assistance individuals $100,000 in “death gratuity”; the installments are tax excluded. The families of service members additionally have the choice to gather a limit of $400,000 in extra security, however administration individuals need to pay into the protection intend to accept its advantages.

Speaking on “Fox and Friends,” Horton — whose son, Army Spc. Christopher Horton, was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 — proclaimed the Biden administration’s arrangement “an insult” and clarified it disrespects military families.

“I think it’s another — yet another insult … against our military families and Gold Star families and veterans’ families,” Horton said. “It’s just another another slap in the face. It’s completely disrespectful.”

“To compare an illegal person who has broken our country’s border laws … they’ve broken the law coming in on our borders and to compare that with someone, a patriot like my son, who gave his all on the battlefield of Afghanistan, and to just say, ‘Oh well, the value is more for someone who has broken our laws’ … and now to say, ‘Oh, we owe you money — and it’s more money than we would pay a patriot — I am outraged,” Horton said.

“You just wonder, where is the outcry against some of these policies that are just there? Unbelievable to me,” Horton added.
