and Mike Pompeo for 'getting rolled'
by the Taliban

Rep. Adam Kinzinger slammed the former Trump administration's deal with the Taliban, saying on Sunday that it set the stage for the current failure in Afghanistan. The Illinois Republican said former President Donald Trump and his then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are at fault for America's "disastrous" withdrawal from the country. "Donald Trump was publicly saying, 'We have to get out of Afghanistan at all costs. It's not worth it.' Mike Pompeo meets with the Taliban and tries to 'negotiate' something," Kinzinger said during an appearance on CNN. "They ended up getting rolled almost as bad as Neville Chamberlain," he


Pelosi's Puke hopped on the Biden bandwagon just before it went over a cliff. Enjoy the ride down.

This POS and Cheney (my rep) are two brainless enablers of the democrats. Both seem to forget that Trump had a plan for withdrawal, which Biden did not follow, and Trump told the Taliban that he would bomb them back in to the dark ages if they resumed their violence. These two idiots conveniently forget this and are showing themselves to be as unethical, intellectually dishonest and corrupt as the democrats. No wonder the GOP is such a pathetic political party.

You have Kinzinger is a consistent moron. They must literally have evidence that would put him away for life! He better hope they don't decide his demise would be better used to smear the GOP, and distract from the Democrats, rather than use him to pontificate straw man accusations.

Yes, Pres. Trump wanted to leave Afghanistan but not the way that idiot Biden did it. Biden scrapped Trump's plan and just left, left the Afghans and Americans to fend for themselves. He also left billions of dollars worth of military equipment like planes, helicopters, weapons, and cash. All down the drain. How can anyone blame Pres Trump is beyond me. We all wanted out. Why don't you go ahead a join the failing Democrat Party. You no longer belong to the Republican Party. You are a RINO!

Clown. Biden through out everything else Trump did. Everyone knows this. Idiot suffers from such a huge case of TDS he can't tell how stupid he sounds attacking Trump when even the MSM understands it's all Biden now. Very few argue about leaving or not. It was the WAY that BIDEN -chose- to leave that caused the problems of the last few months and will cause for years to come. Adam, resign, shut up, go talk to someone who cares what you say, like your dog.

Kinzinger is the front runner to lose his district after the census redraw in Illinois, so he figures he has nothing to lose anyway. He's the perfect example of the modern military officer - a puke marxist that hides behind the uniform and his service when it can be used to get him somewhere, but otherwise just a filthy communist. I suspect the poison runs very deep in the military since 2008, and there are far more of these types than have been exposed. We see them at the top ranks, but the ones at the lower officer ranks are still hidden.

The Taliban had already broken the terms of the Trump administration's agreement before Resident Biden claimed he was just following the Trump withdrawal plan. First, Trump would not have proceeded with the withdrawal under those circumstances, and probably would have cut the Taliban off at the knees so they would not have been able to overrun the country.

Kinzinger is a liar. The Taliban started negotiating for seats in the Afghan government shortly after it was formed. These negotiations go as far back as Obama, and maybe even Bush II. He knows this. Why anyone gave the Taliban credibility is beyond me. Don't just blame Trump for this. Kinzinger is a veteran of the US Air Force yet he is working overtime to criticize Trump, and his administration. Who's paying him? The guy is a disgrace.

Adam Kinzinger is a Democrat wannabe. I can't believe that we have high ranking people with beliefs like his serving in our military! They are a bigger threat to our country that supposed white supremacists! There was no reason for him to criticize the previous administration's deal with the Taliban. His TDS is showing! Biden had been in office for 5 months before he surrendered Bagram Air Base and he had the ability to renegotiate the deal at any time which he didn't and he also didn't follow Pompeo's deal. Giving up Bagram was the most treasonous and disastrous thing he could have done and if he had kept Bagram we would still have the defendable air field, support areas and most importantly the prison which housed all of the Taliban, Al Quida, and ISIS prisoners who are all now on the loose and will wreak havoc for our efforts to get all of those we need to get out of Afghanistan! People of Illinois, purge this traitor!

Zat a fact Adamkin? Ya think thats a Zinger??? How many cities , districts, towns did the Taliban hold on the day Biden was sworn in?? How many now?? How many American casualties in Trumps era vs Obama-Bidens? Today, under Biden the land has become Talibanistan...and thousands of Americans are trapped behind enemy lines, with our newly "Surged" troops left to "Alamo" an airport, not a Military Base, not our Embassy...a frikken public airfield totally surrounded by an urban area, and with high mountains within rifle, artillery, rocket, mortar, range of everything inside the fences. Long range rifles, artillery, rockets, and mortars, GIFTED to the Enemy by O'Biden. A situation even 2 mere weeks ago you promised "Could not/Would not" happen, it wasn't even possible. and that HE claimed he had totally under control, with plans for EVERY contingency. He "Gave us his a Biden"

Whether or not there’s any truth in what Kinzinger says about prior negotiations, Biden bears full responsibility for what has actually happened. He had no trouble negating President Trump’s other policies. He didn’t feel obligated or boxed in by them. Spare us the malarkey. Biden made the decision he made. Period. How the situation MIGHT have unfolded under President Trump is irrelevant. All we know is that — true to form — what actually happened under Biden was an unmitigated disaster.

Joe Biden was bluffing with a weak hand again. Faced with the prospect that America’s promised retreat from Afghanistan wouldn’t be complete by month’s end, the commander in chief began backtracking on his exit date last week. “If there’s American citizens left, we’re going to stay to get them all out,” he told ABC News. (Snip) Having abandoned Bagram Air Base and allowed Kabul to fall, Biden now finds himself in the unenviable position of relying on the good will of the Taliban to permit Americans to safely exit the country.

The US military is advising President Joe Biden that he must decide by Tuesday whether to extend the evacuation in Afghanistan beyond August 31, according to a defense official directly familiar with the discussions. Military advisers have told the White House that the decision must be made by Tuesday in order to have enough time to withdraw the 5,800 troops currently on the ground, as well as their equipment and weapons. If the President agrees, the military anticipates "a few more days" of trying to evacuate as many people as possible before the drawdown of US forces begins, possibly at

Most U.S. military evacuation planes fly from Kabul to Qatar and the inability to handle more evacuees there is causing a ripple effect. Pentagon officials said Saturday they continue to process evacuees from Afghanistan, despite a fluid and dynamic situation at Kabul airport. “The airport remains secure,” said Army Maj. Gen.

President Joe Biden just faced one of his toughest weeks as president yet, with pandemonium in Afghanistan, skyrocketing COVID-19 cases, and a declining approval rating. Roughly a month after Biden forcefully defended his move to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, expressing "trust" in the capacity of the Afghan military to keep the Taliban at bay, the militant Islamist group marched into Kabul on Sunday. The Taliban had rapidly seized major cities over the course of the prior week, often without much of a fight. The militants regained control of the country just days after the US military assessed that it

Democratic nominee for Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe on Monday called on all employers in his state to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations following the Food and Drug Administration’s full approval of the Pfizer vaccine. "Today, I am calling on every Virginia employer to require all eligible employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19," the former Virginia governor said in a statement Monday afternoon. "I have long said that the best way to defeat this deadly virus, keep our students in school and keep Virginia’s economy strong is by getting every eligible Virginian vaccinated as quickly as possible."

The majority of Americans no longer believe President Joe Biden is competent in his role as the Commander-in-Chief, according to a CBS News poll. Fifty-one percent of the respondents said Biden is not competent in his position as president. This is compared to only 49 percent who said he is. Additionally, the poll found that 52 percent of the respondents did not feel the president has been focused. The poll was taken during and after the fall of the now-Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan, when Biden botched the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from the country. With that, 53 percent of the respondents said they disagree with the way Biden withdrew the troops.

The U.S. Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 during the insurrection was cleared Monday after an internal review concluded the action may have spared the lives of lawmakers and staffers who had barricaded themselves inside the building. "The officer’s actions were consistent with the officer’s training and (U.S. Capitol Police) policies," the agency's inquiry found. The agency declined to identify the officer. Federal prosecutors decided in April not to pursue criminal charges in the case. Some who supported the Capitol siege by rioters angry about the outcome of the presidential election cast Babbitt as a martyr to the conservative cause.

While it’s easy to suggest that Juan Williams is an idiot based on the content of an op-ed he just penned on Afghanistan that The Hill published, there may be more to the story here.Liberal pundits like Williams, who plies his trade on Fox News, exist primarily to carry water for the Democratic Party and its leaders in Washington, D.C., and with President Joe Biden taking a beating for the spectacular blundering of the U.S. exit from Afghanistan, Biden and his party are desperate to redirect the narrative here. Unfortunately for Democrats, when the debacle is as big as what is now happening in Kabul, that’s like

President Joe Biden hailed the FDA's approval of the Pfizer vaccine as the 'moment you’ve all been waiting'–as he urged Americans who have been sitting on the fence to get their vaccine shots 'today' but dodged comment on Afghanistan. It was a welcome moment of good news for an administration battered by weeks of negative headlines, from spiking cases of COVID-19 to the collapse of the Afghan government and plunging poll numbers. And Biden, speaking at the White House, portrayed it as a huge victory even though it will be of limited practical value months after the vaccination received emergency approval.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki labeled it “irresponsible” to say that Americans currently attempting to leave Afghanistan are “stranded” in the country, in response to a question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy at a press briefing on Monday. “First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not,” Psaki said. “We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” adding that the U.S. is in touch with Americans in Afghanistan by phone, email, and other communications. “‘There are no Americans stranded’ is the White House’s official position on what’s happening in Afghanistan right now?” Doocy countered.

As disgraced outgoing Gov. Andrew Cuomo packed his bags and sent his belongings to his sister’s house in his last days in office, he left something very important behind—his dog. Instead, Cuomo asked staff at his Albany mansion if they want to take care of his dog, Captain, the Albany Times Union reported, citing two state police sources. The sources also told the publication an Executive Mansion worker recently took Captain home but didn’t want to take care of the canine. The pooch—a 3½-year-old Siberian-shepherd-Malamute mix—has bitten multiple people in recent years, the Times Union reported.

WASHINGTON – Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken for statements that President Joe Biden has made on Afghanistan, including the president's claim that al-Qaida is no longer active in the country. During remarks on Friday, Biden said the United States no longer has any interest in keeping troops in Afghanistan because al-Qaida, which was behind the 9/11 attacks, is gone. “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?” Biden said. "We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as well as... getting Osama bin Laden. And we did."

Marines will lose their pensions, tuition assistance, and access to the G.I. bill, along with other military benefits, if they refuse the COVID-19 vaccination, according to internal emails reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon. An Aug. 18 email from Col. Teague Pastel, a commanding officer at the Marine Barracks in Washington, D.C., told colleagues that although "vaccines are still voluntary," the military believes "they will become mandatory in the near future." The penalties for refusing the coronavirus vaccination, Pastel wrote, should be in line with others for insubordination. Those penalties include "administration separation," a demerit in the Marine's personal file, as well as the forfeiture of various retirement and financial benefits.

People will put up with a little absentmindedness or occasional faux pas. But when creeping senility puts lives at risk and national interests in jeopardy, that’s entirely different. (snip) Consequently, we are about to witness a genuine insurrection that will put Jan. 6, 2020, into proper perspective. (snip) What looms today is far more serious, infinitely more calculated and definitely more likely to achieve its goal: to replace a sitting president in mid-term, probably against his will. It ain’t gonna be pretty. It has the real possibility of resembling a banana republic coup d'état.
