The U.S. State Department has struggled to keep up with the crumbling situation in Afghanistan. On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the growing atrocities committed by the Taliban have posed significant problems for diplomats and military personnel in the country.
“I think it speaks to a larger issue, which is this: the Taliban has repeatedly said that they seek in the future a number of things,” he expressed. “…None of those things are going to be possible if the Taliban seeks to take the country by force and commits the kind of atrocities that have been reported.”

The Biden administration is bitting the bullet on bad press of illegal immigration in a “calculated decision” to expand their voter base in the U.S., according to former acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli on Newsmax.
“They made a calculated decision at the beginning of this process that they were going to take all the incoming fire and the low poll numbers on immigration in an effort to get what they believe will be a bunch of illegal future voters that they believe will vote for them,” Cuccinelli told Monday’s “Cortes & Pellegrino.” That’s what this is about.

“Currently, with who’s in the White House now, they haven’t heard the gun go off,” the Tennessee Republican told Newsmax’s “American Agenda.” “It is ridiculous. The American tax dollars helped fund this. They continue to refuse an investigation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
The report, released by Republicans on Monday, said evidence shows the virus leaked from the Wuhan lab and cited “ample evidence that its scientists, who were helped by U.S. experts and the use of Chinese and U.S. government funds, had been working to modify coronaviruses to infect humans.

The number of children traveling alone who were picked up at the Mexican border by U.S. immigration authorities likely hit an all-time high in July, and the number of people who came in families likely reached its second-highest total on record, a U.S. official said Monday, citing preliminary government figures.
The sharp increases from June were striking because crossings usually slow during stifling — and sometimes fatal — summer heat.
U.S. authorities likely picked up more than 19,000 unaccompanied children in July, exceeding the previous high of 18,877 in March, according to David Shahoulian, assistant secretary for border and immigration policy at the Department of Homeland Security. The June total was 15,253.
