On the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show, host Sara Carter spoke about the final days of the U.S. military’s presence in Afghanistan. For her family, Afghanistan has been a central part of their lives.

“Our entire lives since September 11, 2001 have been all consumed,” Carter said. “Unfortunately, a lot of it with a war and terror, either covering the war on terror as a journalist, or my husband fighting in the wars overseas trying to target those terrorists that were planning on bringing that terror here to the United States again.”

As a result of the U.S. military leaving, hundreds of thousands of people have left along with them. In a full circle moment, Carter’s family is becoming a host family for a family of Afghan refugees.

“But we do have an Afghan family coming,” Carter said. “A former interpreter who I worked with, and his beautiful little baby boy, and his wife who did make it out. I’m still trying to get the rest of his family. And my husband is actually super thrilled about this.”

Meanwhile, two weeks ago, President Biden met with officials from Kosovo and Albania recently in an attempt to encourage more countries to take in Afghan refugees. However his efforts were in vain. Instead of helping people fleeing Afghanistan, countries hesitated to take them in because they’re concerned about COVID-19 health screenings. So, Carter is proud that she can do her part to help them.

“It was almost as if Marty, my husband, was doing what the United States could not do,” Carter said.

According to Carter, there could be anywhere between 300 to 1500 Americans remaining in Afghanistan. But the last U.S. soldier left Monday.

Biden Administration Proposes Rule to Fortify Federal Bureaucracy Against Republican Presidency



Joe Biden

In a strategic move, the Biden administration has unveiled a proposed rule aimed at reinforcing the left-leaning federal bureaucracy, potentially hindering future conservative policy implementations by Republican presidents. This move has raised concerns about the efficacy of democratic elections when a deep-seated bureaucracy remains largely unchanged, regardless of electoral outcomes.

Key points of the situation include:

Presidential Appointees vs. Career Bureaucrats: Of the 2.2 million federal civil workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The vast majority, made up of career bureaucrats, continue in their roles from one administration to the next. This continuity is facilitated by rules that make it exceedingly difficult to discipline or replace them, resulting in a bureaucracy that tends to lean left politically.

Union Political Affiliation: A striking 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates support Democrats, according to Open Secrets, with only 5% favoring Republicans. This significant political skew among federal workers raises questions about the potential for political bias in the execution of government policies.

Obstructionism and Challenges for GOP Presidents: Some career bureaucrats have been accused of obstructing Republican presidents’ agendas, leading to policy delays and challenges. For example, during the Trump administration, career lawyers in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division declined to challenge Yale University’s discrimination against Asian American applicants, prompting Trump to seek legal counsel from other divisions. The case was subsequently dropped when Joe Biden took office.

Biden’s Countermeasures: President Biden has taken steps to protect the bureaucracy’s status quo. In October 2020, Trump issued an executive order aiming to reclassify federal workers who make policy as at-will employees, but Biden canceled it upon taking office.

Proposed Rule and Congressional Actions: The rule unveiled by the Biden administration seeks to further impede a president’s ability to reinstate Trump’s order. Additionally, some Democrats in Congress are pushing to eliminate the president’s authority to reclassify jobs entirely. This has been referred to as an attempt to “Trump-proof the federal workforce.”

Republican Candidates’ Pledge: GOP candidates such as President Donald J Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Ron DeSantis have pledged to address this issue. According to reports from Fox News, Ramaswamy has gone further, advocating for the elimination of half or more of civil service positions, emphasizing the need for accountability.

Debate on the Merit of the Civil Service: While Democrats and their media allies argue that civil service protects merit over patronage, critics contend that the system has evolved into a form of job security for federal workers with minimal accountability. Federal employees often receive higher salaries and more substantial benefits than their private-sector counterparts.

In summary, the Biden administration’s proposed rule and broader actions to protect the federal bureaucracy have sparked a debate over the role of career bureaucrats in shaping government policy.

Republican candidates are vowing to address these concerns, highlighting the need for accountability and ensuring that government agencies work in alignment with the elected president’s agenda. This ongoing debate raises important questions about the relationship between the bureaucracy and the democratic process in the United States.
