He sure is. One can give him a partial pass on COVID’s resurgence since the rise of the Delta variant was out of his hands. But the other three here are squarely on him. Even COVID is only a partial pass. Many millions of senior citizens are sitting around waiting to be infected as the immunity from shots they received six or seven months ago ebbs. What are Biden’s CDC and FDA doing about it? Jack at the moment, to all appearances. I have no sense of how the catastrophic lightning fall of Afghanistan’s government will play with voters.

Leaders lead. See Donald Trump. Dementia-addled old coots like not-my-president Lyin' Joe biden just say whatever their handlers tell them to say, and let someone else do all the work. Sadly, those handlers, and the people trying to do all the work, are massively incompetent lie-berals, and things are only going to get much, much worse because of it!!!

Biden handles the crises in the same way that his Kenyan mentor did, he vacationed for most of the week and then took off for home early. I wonder if he even remembers what happened.

All these crises are of his own making...or the fault of whichever O'Bama swamp creature is working on Biden' behalf as President. I don't think Jill Biden would be this bad on her own.

Of course Biden is a disaster, and so is his policies, exactly like the deep state and Luciferian media wants it. The know exactly what they're doing. Every "crisis" is a reason to enact new legislation and take more power. Dementia Joe is the perfect president for the dark forces who are wielding power behind the scenes. Obama is probably involved, but he's also taking orders. And, if need be, Kamala will also make a fine deep-state teleprompter puppet (like if some murky operative with a MAGA hat shoots someone). The deep state cabal, who controls the courts and the FBI, wants to weaken America and move us more towards socialism/communism. Of course their policies never work for the people, but that's what Marxists do. It's all based on lies, and so far they have been remarkably successful with their crimes and deceit and appear to be untouchable. God help us.

Insofar as Afghanistan goes what's the big surprise ? Government running for the hills. Did you think that for a moment they would stay and fight ? Once there's no more American blood to be spilled and money to be spent they'll all come looking for Green Cards.

When my mother was suffering from Alzheimer's we received dementia counseling from her physican's office. One of the things that was stressed was that you do not place the patient in a situation where he has to make any kind of choice. It is simply to difficult for them to process. And if that cannot be helped then never make the choice more than between two items. Such as, "Do you want corn or peas with dinner"? biden is being bombarded with crisis after crisis, info being thrown at him that he can't process Those who are really running this administration have overloaded his circuits. Even though joe will not actually be making any decisions on his own he is being force fed what they want him to say. He is confused because circuit A can no longer hook up to circuit B. The only choice that should be asked of joe is "Do you want sprinkles or nuts on your ice cream cone"? He is back home in the basement. Probably the only familiar place where he feels safe. He is a disaster.

Let's recap: Afghanistan Withdrawal - not just disastrous, but catastrophically so; Inflation - worst in 30 years, and that's without the Infrastructure bill to catapault it to the moon; Immigration - worst in history, with the active aid of the Biden admin; Covid19 - history will show that Biden's transportation of infected illegals into every state was the most deliberate and far-reaching super-spreader event anyone could have imagined: it will make Biden directly responsible for the deaths of millions of Americans; Election integrity - with help of threats from AG Garland, Biden is doing everything his admin can to insure fraudulent elections into the future; Govt Law and Intelligence agencies - the FBI/DOJ/NSA continue their rogue, partisan espionage and prosecutions of opposition politicians, newscasters, and citizens. Religious liberties - the IRS has renewed it one-sided persecution of Christian organizations. Race relations - due to a single anecdotal death (George Floyd's suicide by cop), and the govt's toleration of BLM/Antifa anarchy, the radicals are using CRT, reparations, defunding of police, and a dozen other reverse-racist tactics to remake America in their own bizarro image. etc, etc, etc. Just like poster 11 said, "'Bidas' what ever he touches turns to schitt."

He may be facing a lot of crisis, but never a crisis of conscience. To have a crisis of conscience you must first have a conscience, second have a memory of what you have done, and third have a sense of honor. This demented pretender has none of those.

Somebody had a bad week but it wasn't the senile brain dead fraudster Joe Biden. The guy's entire life has a 'lid' on it. That doofus doesn't even know where he is but someone has a crisis on their hands. We have no government just nitwits that stole an election in order to evict President Trump along with his family from Washington. Joe Biden is not the president he's only a senile, shuffling old coot lurking somewhere all day long clueless of what surrounds him. He can't even walk on a sidewalk and ends up in bushes. A this moment fraudster Joe Biden couldn't show you on a second grade globe sitting on the teacher's desk where Afghanistan is located include the southern US border with that.

Shouldn't be a problem on most days. He's usually at least conscious until about noon when they put a lid on. So if Dr. Jill reads the list of decisions that Obama made out for him by then, we're good. Of course, we may have a problem if somebody launches a nuclear attack on us after noon, or if nobody can get hold of Obama for the list of actions to give to Jill to read to Joe.

Rise of Delta variant our of his hands? Not really. The Democrats have been fear mongering the Delta variant in hopes of extending pandemic rules to support their autocratic and unconstitutional control over the USA so that is not out of his hands. Especially as he promotes the entry of infected illegal aliens and the dispersal of those virus carriers into population centers of the country.

FTA: One can give him a partial pass on COVID’s resurgence since the rise of the Delta variant was out of his hands. This may be true, but it never stopped Democrats from blaming President Trump for everything and obstructing his efforts to combat COVID. The misinformation and mishandling of the response to the Delta variant all belong to him. So he, and his administration, are to blame for all these crises they have created. "Are you going to believe me, or your lying eyes?" explanations assume we are as stupid as they are.

It is debatable how much "Uncle Joe" knew about the 2020 election steal, but two things are certain: 1. It was far from nothing, and... 2. He remembers less of it, and thus owns less of it, every day. So the Deep State / DNC has to be worrying: what if Uncle Joe wakes up some day and sees the whole sordid plot with new eyes, and suddenly determines to become the "Sheriff Joe" of legend (in his own mind)? They probably want to make sure he never wakes up on that day...

Sometimes I think that we just should have left the barbarians alone but then I remember bin Laden staged 911 from there and their monstrous treatment of women and children. But....twenty years? I am sure that there are some decent people in that country but not enough to stand up to the savages. I also suspect that Iraq will just be a satellite of Iran. They are pretty close now. Trump slowed them down by vaporizing Soleimani but Israel is coming to realize that they can only depend on themselves and never the Biden Administration. I can see Nuclear war in the not-so-distant future.

We’re seeing a tragedy happening in Afghanistan because of Joe Biden’s precipitous withdrawal without apparently any real preparation with the Afghan government or understanding the movement of the Taliban. Now that the Taliban are moving into Kabul, we likely will not be able to save thousands of our allies who are now behind enemy lines. Hopefully, we’re able to get our own people out in time — even that may be a question now. On Thursday, State Department spokesperson Ned Price talked about having “weeks” to get people out,

“Rarely has an American president’s predictions been so wrong, so fast, so convincingly as President Biden on Afghanistan,” begins Mike Allen’s Axios report on the imminent fall of the Afghan national government to the Taliban. Just five weeks ago, Biden assured Americans “[T]he likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.” What made that prediction ludicrous even at the time was that his own generals had been telling him that there were very few reliable units in the Afghan army that could resist the Taliban. The endgame was always going to be played out swiftly

Today, as things further deteriorate in Afghanistan, a question popped into my head — where’s Kamala Harris? The vice president hasn’t spoken publicly since the chaos started, mimicking the disappearing act she pulled early in Joe Biden’s presidency. Over the past weeks, she’s been the subject of several hit pieces as well, likely sourced from within the White House. What is her response to the disaster currently playing out? Then Larry O’Connor reminded me of Harris’ statement back in April on the withdrawal, and I believe it’s going to be very relevant going forward, as Biden looks to shiv someone in the back to avoid blame.

The key eastern city, which is also the capital of Nangarhar province, fell early on Sunday morning. Its fall followed the Taliban’s seizure of the major northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The armed group posted photos online on Sunday showing its members in the governor’s office in Jalalabad. “We woke up this morning to the Taliban white flags all over the city,” said resident Ahmad Wali, confirming the Taliban’s social media claim. “They entered without fighting,”

What will it take for Joe Biden to admit he is disastrously wrong about Afghanistan? The US leader struck a defiant pose last week. Sounding like a slightly desperate Olympics coach, he told Afghans it was their country. If they want it, they have to fight for it. In American politics-speak, this is called tough love. Without the love. Biden has more hands-on foreign policy experience than any president since George HW Bush. That doesn’t mean he knows what he’s doing. Opinion polls suggest his abrupt Afghan withdrawal has majority public support. That doesn’t mean Americans will remain indifferent as the carnage and misery mount.

Marine Corps General David H. Berger on Monday rebuked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s edict requiring all Armed Forces personnel to submit to Covid-19 vaccinations under threat of court martial or discharge, said a source in Gen.

Berger telephoned the defense secretary minutes after he said in a press conference that the Covid-19 vaccination is needed to maintain military readiness and that he would enforce the mandatory vaccination policy regardless of FDA approval status. “There will be no mandatory vaccinations for my Marines,” Gen. Berger said.
