When Afghanistan’s now-deposed President Ashraf Ghani visited President Joe Biden in the White House in late June, he expressed some concerns about how the U.S. planned to evacuate people ahead of the troop withdrawal from his country. Ghani said he worried that a planned massive airlift of U.S. citizens and Afghan nationals who had helped the U.S. would send a disheartening signal and undermine confidence in his government’s ability to fight the Taliban, according to a senior administration official familiar with the discussions. Biden and his advisors listened, the official says, and in mid-July they decided to move ahead with


He has failed miserably. Maybe our upcoming evacuation of Taiwan and the Ukraine will go better.

There is nothing more important in Washington and this country than for congress to impeach and remove Biden and his administration immediately.

As if Biden is capable of doing ANYTHING well is even an issue...he is a stubborn, arrogant man now hobbled by brain of the reasons I stopped subscribing to Time, Newsweek, US News and World Report etc. long ago. I also stopped giving $ to PBS, won't buy Vogue, Vanity Fair (I was a 25 year subscriber) and all the other Trump hater mags who never gave Melania a cover or an article (just basic courtesy even if you weren't a Trump supporter) and now slobber over the MARRIED babysitter who ran off with Joe Biden, DR. Jill with her ridiculous degree.

He isn't "facing" a major test, he's already failed it. Even his Dem colleagues in Congress are running scared after their classified briefing on Afghanistan. That's why I think both Biteme and Camel Toe should get food tasters. He's senile and less able to present a competent face by the day, and she's an incompetent who owes her success to being Willie Brown's mistress.

Biden is the face of failure but this is much more than Biden. It is a failure of the ruling elite that come mostly from liberal Ivy League schools and Washington swamp parasites. All paid for by the current tax payers and those to come. It will get worse.

Joe Biden said during the 2020 Presidential campaign that he had the most experience of any person who ever ran for President because of the decades he spent in the United States Senate and eight years as Vice President for Barack Obama. (Snip) Actually, he said he was “instructed” whom to call upon. For real. Biden addressed the country and the White House Press Corps for about ten minutes regarding the bombings that took in Afghanistan early Thursday in which at least 13 United States service people lost their lives and many more were injured.

Left-wing MSNBC intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance initially downplayed Thursday's suicide bombing outside of Kabul's airport, which reportedly killed at least 12 U.S. service members, telling his nearly one million Twitter followers to "deal with it" before eventually deleting the tweet after widespread backlash. While the attacks near the airport resulted in multiple casualties and forced most media members to brace for the worst, Nance didn’t seem to think the terror attack was a big deal at the time. He ultimately deleted it. "20 Years- FYI there have been terrorist suicide bombers killing civilians nearly DAILY in Afghanistan. This ain’t new.

The former Royal Marine seeking to secure the passage of 200 dogs and cats alongside his animal shelter staff out of Afghanistan says the Taliban is blocking their evacuation. Paul Farthing, known as Pen, founded the Nowzad shelter in Kabul after serving with the British Army in Afghanistan in the mid-2000s, with the organisation rescuing dogs, cats and donkeys. Since the collapse of the Afghan government, he has campaigned to have his staff and their families as well as 140 dogs and 60 cats evacuated from the country in a privately chartered Airbus A330.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was caught flat-footed during the daily press briefing when she was asked about a group of California students who are trapped in Afghanistan. Psaki was asked Wednesday if she knew about an LA Times report that a group of students and their parents from California's El Cajon Valley School District are currently stranded in Afghanistan. (Snip) The reporter noted that the students and their families are "apparently stranded in Afghanistan, having traveled there? I don't I don't know for certain."

New Zealand has extended its national lockdown by at least four days as it tries to contain the highly infectious Delta variant. The country first went into lockdown on August 17 after it detected a single COVID-19 case in Auckland, which health officials assumed was Delta. New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Thursday that the infected individual had returned from Sydney, Australia - a COVID-19 hotspot - and arrived in Auckland, the country's largest city, on August 7. By the time it was announced on Monday that the lockdown was being extended, the outbreak was responsible for 107 cases, according to

NEW YORK/LONDON - The Taliban stopped an Afghan United Nations staff member as he tried to reach Kabul airport on Sunday. They searched his vehicle and found his U.N. identification. Then they beat him. On Monday, three unknown men visited the home of another U.N. staff member who was at work at the time. They asked his son where his father was, and accused him of lying: "We know his location and what he does." The incidents are among dozens contained in an internal U.N. security document seen by Reuters that describes veiled threats, the looting of U.N. offices and

WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden on Tuesday stuck by his plan to remove the nearly 6,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of August, contingent on whether the Taliban cooperates to allow the evacuation of more Americans and their Afghan allies. Biden announced a plan in April to withdraw 2,500 U.S. troops who were still in Afghanistan after a 20-year war, but was forced to send thousands more back to evacuate those at risk as the U.S.-backed government and military quickly collapsed. The chaotic and perilous evacuation from Kabul airport that ensued has unleashed a wave of criticism and presented

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

During an address to the nation Thursday evening, President Biden vowed to “hunt down” the terrorists behind the bombings at the Kabul airport and said the U.S. military will continue to evacuate American citizens and allies despite the disruption. Biden spoke hours after two bombs were detonated outside the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul. One suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at the airport’s central Abbey gate, killing at least twelve American troops and wounding 15 others. A second bomber detonated his device outside the Baron Hotel, near the airport’s perimeter. It remains unclear whether any Americans were killed in that blast.

"Plaintiffs and their fellow law enforcement officers risked their lives to defend the Capitol from a violent, mass attack — an attack provoked, aided, and joined by Defendants in an unlawful effort to use force, intimidation, and threats to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 Presidential election," says the lawsuit

One of the most effective ways for the MSM to shut down an inquiry into misconduct is to say it is all a conspiracy theory. Besides avoiding an unwanted discussion, the charge also invites scrutiny of the "theorist" instead of the issue itself. Notice how quickly some even start off saying something like "I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but..." Expecting their reaction, we have become almost trained to do this. But are there really no big conspiracies? It has been claimed that the phrase "conspiracy theory" was invented by the government to discourage the questioning of official explanations for important events, especially the JFK assassination.

In a move no one can grasp, U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies, believing the Taliban would allow them to enter the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport. Lawmakers and military officials are outraged. The insane move was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Kabul by the August 31 deadline. It also came as the Biden administration began relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport. ISIS-K has since set up forces around the soon-to-be-renamed Hamid Karzai International Airport.

Initial estimates vary, but an Afghan health official told the New York Times that at least 40 people had been killed and 120 injured.
