During his press conference on Thursday following the terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed 13 U.S. servicemembers, President Biden blamed his generals for the decision to leave Bagram Air Base behind and did not deny reports that his administration gave the Taliban a list of Americans stranded in the region. On the issue of Bagram Air Base, President Biden said that he made the decision to essentially abandon the location upon his generals’ advice: On the tactical questions of how to conduct an evacuation or a war, I gather up all the major military personnel that are in Afghanistan, the commanders,

But, but Biteme said the buck stopped with him. It was his idea to just leave Afghanistan without getting civilians out first and all of our military equipment, THEN pull out.

First, Joe said the buck stops here, then he blamed Trump, then the generals, then he shuffled off the stage. What a joke he is. Many more of our soldiers will die before this is over. He needs to resign NOW.

And Idi Amin said earlier in the week that their recommendation was to hold Bagram and use it to exfiltrate people, and that they were expressly overruled by Xiden. Someone (or all) are lying. Since Xiden thinks he is in charge, he is ultimately responsible. And for this, he should be removed from office.

Every micromanaged decision Biden makes is one hundred percent political with not a shred of strategic or tactical considerations that should be made crystal clear well before our military is foolishly placed in harm's way. The president must communicate what needs to be accomplished vis-a-vis our national security and only rarely, if ever, direct how to do it.

Biden learned all about giving our enemies critical information from Obama. Remember how after we killed Osama Bin Laden? Our Blackhawk Helicopter was mysteriously blown out of the sky by a Taliban missile while on a secret mission. Ironically it was SEAL Team 6. The same team that killed Osama. Biden learned that lesson well.

"They concluded, the military, that Bagram Air Base was not much value-added, that it was much wiser to focus on Kabul." There is absolutely no effing way that his military commanders - no matter how incompetent - would have made that recommendation. If "slashing the in-country troop presence" was the objective and a choice had to be made between the two facilities, a simple solution would have been to collapse the embassy and move its operations to the air base. Heck, we may have been able to claim the runways as sovereign U.S. territory and renamed it Bagram Air Force Base.

Of course he did. Austin and Milley more than likely did make the decision to abandon Bagram. They are that stupid. After all there weren't any "White Rage" individuals at Bagram. Just thousands of "oppressed" ISIS prisoners. And the Taliban set them free.

I believe the American people know this was a massive failure on behalf of the entire Biden Administration. Democrats leaked information regarding any and every detail of the Trump administration. However, not one word was leaked regarding Biden’s decision to withdraw our troops prematurely from Afghanistan. Not a peep. The same people who gave us an illegitimate President are the same people who knowingly followed a mentally deficient man’s decision knowing thousands would be put in grave danger and most likely would end up in a murderous situation. Not one leak. Frankly, if President Trump anytime in his presidency was about to make a decision so dangerously troubling that it would most likely cost possibly thousands of lives, I would want someone to leak something to the media because it would be clear that the President was impaired mentally. No one over the age of 10 could sit through those meetings and fail to understand the ramifications of Biden’s inexplicable decision. This tells me everyone was on board because no human could keep quiet knowing the sure outcome of such a decision. We all know Washington leaks like a sieve and yet, not a peep about the possible carnage that would result because of this decision. And you wonder why democrats are never held accountable. It is because they are protected. However, they will not be able to escape this time. Biden and his supporters will be a high price for causing the deaths of our military, as well they should.

Which thief is going to steal more from you, the one who shoplifts during working hours avoiding cameras and eyes or the one who sneaks in during the night? Biden is the perfect cover for whomever is really calling the shots emboldening them with the narrative that the incompetent senile guy is screwing up opposed to the locus of power succeeding in spectacular fashion in deliberately destroying the country. How in any other place and time in history, would handing the enemy who has already commenced door to door searches and hung our allies , a list of remaining targets as well as our own people, not be considered an act of treason? Do not be fooled by the facade of an old man in decline. When Seal Team six was outed for execution Biden was also the curtain masking the true wizard. Biden was already well known for his many gaffs and slip ups so who better to pretend to accidentally let it slip out?

An error of this magnitude--giving the enemy a kill list--cannot be attributed to mere stupidity or failed post aneurysm brain surgery (was it a frontal lobotomy?). No, it's cupidity, and much much worse from those determined to tear down America. Xiden, always in the bottom intellectual tier of government, is not completely aware of what is going down, but the quisling Obama retreads surrounding him don't have that excuse. Can these people be made to pay? Now we know what Dorothy Parker meant when she wrote: "I d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy."

Blaming the generals? Biden is the Commander in Chief. The generals report to him. The generals are worthless, too. I've read the names were left behind in the Embassy, so they might as well have been handed over. Either way the result is the same. The Taliban has a hit list.

Biden has been blaming former President Trump and his Pentagon Generals for the fiasco that has been ongoing in Afghanistan. But Biden has been the President for over the last seven months, give the Taliban a date certain for his withdrawal, first September 11, and then August 31, thus giving the Taliban time to plan their offensive as Biden’s date certain announcement demoralized the Afghan armed forces that immediately lost American air support and all the US contractors who maintained the modern US military equipment the was given to them by the USA. Biden then supercharged that demoralization by bugging out of America’s biggest base, the defendable Bagram airbase, in the middle of the night, without even advising are closest allies including the British military and the Afghan armed forces command. The USA Was then left with only the indefensible Kabul Airport located right next to the City of Kabul with its four million Afghan urban population to conduct the evacuation of Americans and Afghans from Afghanistan. That decision by Biden put US forces in extreme danger to terrorist attacks and obviously those attacks started yesterday. The airport is now surrounded by the Taliban and could be attacked by Islamist terrorist groups at anytime. To stop the situation at the airport from devolving into another Dien Bien Phu type disaster reminiscent of the French Army was surrounded by the Vietnamese Communists and being throughly defeated, with US troops being trapped at the airport unable to leave. So Biden has consigned himself to having to play patty cake with the Taliban, a terrorist organization responsible for killing and wounding thousands of US and NATO troops and Western contractors over many years, to have any hope of getting all the troops out of the airport in the end.

It’s obvious that Biden and the leftist and socialist Democrats could care less about the future of Afghanistan, as they have classified almost the entire population of Afghanistan as being “vulnerable” Afghans who should be allowed to enter the USA as refugees, whether they rendered substantial assistance to the US military or not. Thereby seeking to strip Afghanistan of its educated and modern liberalized social classes leaving no viable alternative to the 7th century Taliban and other Islamist terrorist groups. Clearly the leftist and socialist Democrats are now intent on allowing as many “refugees” from Afghanistan and elsewhere as possible into the USA, using policy that comports with their long-term political plan to permanently change the ethnic and racial population and voter demographics of the USA, so that the leftist and socialist Democrats can remain in permanent political political power controlling both the Congress and the White House with what the leftist and socialist Democrats believe will be majority support by a grand coalition of various minority identity based and special interest politicized population groups.

Unfortunately the Biden created ongoing fiasco in Afghanistan shows that the USA has what amounts to an incompetent and Milquetoast Administration running US foreign policy and the US military these days. You have to hope that the US troops now deployed to the Kabul Airport by Biden, a place that is now surrounded by the Islamist terrorist Taliban and no doubt other affiliated terrorist groups who have been killing and wounding thousands of US and NATO troops and contractors over many years, putting those troops at the airport in a very dangerous situation there, will be able to get out of there in the end without the situation devolving into a Dien Bien Phu type disaster where the French Army in Vietnam was surrounded by the Vietnam Communists and being thoroughly defeated after taking massive casualties.

Ric Grenell last night said they also abandoned our Embassy in Afghanistan. Was that like the Benghazi, Iraq Embassy where our Ambassador was murdered and many more Americans murdered? That was a Hillary State Department screw up where she left our Ambassador to be murdered along with others. And Obama (year 2012) flew off to Las Vegas to fund raise for his re-election campaign. Total losers and corrupt and uncaring and dirtbags for letting Americans die when they could have sent in the military to save them. History repeats itself today.

Weasel (noun): A small, slender, carnivorous mammal related to, but generally smaller than, the stoat. 2A deceitful or treacherous person. As I watch Biden and his lackies trying to dance around their Afghanistan debacle, this word continues to come to mind; e.g., is there a bigger weasel in our government than "Admiral" John Kirby, Ned Price, or Biden himself? And now our military leadership is filled with weasels: Milley, Gilday, McKenzie, et. al. I have to ask: out of a nation of 330 million people, are weasels the only ones that can rise to critical leadership positions? Apparently so, and, thus, we are doomed to become just another mediocre nation.

If the Generals recommended Kabul airport over Bagram Air Base they should be fired. Kabul airport is surrounded by Kabul urban area that provide thousands of buildings for snipers to use. Although the US embassy is fairly close to the airport the routes ready-made for ambushes. The Bagram Air Base is on an open plain with little to no places to hide making it harder for ambushes and easier to defend. They sure had a lot of military hardware to defend the place if you see what was left behind for the Taliban to walk away with. I would guess that the choice of the Kabul airport was made by the State Department because of the short distance, but ignoring how dangerous the route is.

A controversial Texas law that bars abortions at six weeks went into effect early Wednesday morning after the Supreme Court and a federal appeals court failed to rule on pending emergency requests brought by abortion providers. The lack of judicial intervention means that the law -- which is one of the strictest in the nation and bans abortion before many people know they are pregnant -- goes into force absent further court intervention. The law allows private citizens to bring civil suits against anyone who assists a pregnant person seeking an abortion in violation of the ban. No other six-week ban has been allowed to go into effect -- even briefly,

Last Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in Kabul, a suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest as American troops at Abbey Gate were processing entrants to Hamid Karzai International Airport. Nearly 200 people died at that horrific moment, including 13 U.S. service members. It was a horrific massacre that didn’t need to happen. There is only one person to blame, and that is Joe Biden — not for his decision to leave Afghanistan, but instead his stubborn insistence on leaving the country on a specific date. It is a stubbornness rooted in negligence, not incompetence, a word often thrown around as reasoning for his failure at this moment.

Joe Biden was telling America in July that the Taliban weren’t going to take over Afghanistan, that no one could have known that was going to happen.

But it turns out that Biden was playing even more games behind the scenes, and something different was going on than what he was telling Americans to our faces. According to a transcript

The GOP-dominated Texas legislature voted Tuesday to pass its elections-reform bill after the state’s Democrats protested and obstructed the measure for weeks, going so far as to walk out of a special session to prevent it from advancing. The legislation now goes to the desk of Republican governor Greg Abbott, who is expected to sign the bill after lobbying for it for many months. While state Democrats have attacked the bill as a voter-suppression measure, state Republicans have insisted it will promote transparency, security, and integrity in Texas elections. Its provisions include rolling back drive-through and 24-hour voting, requiring voters to authenticate their identity on absentee ballots

We remain committed to get them out if they want to come out.” Biden said that over 5,500 Americans who wanted to leave were evacuated from Afghanistan, along with thousands of Afghans who helped the U.S. during the two-decade war.

The United States officially ended its 20-year war in Afghanistan. Now, President Joe Biden and fellow Democrats are racing to put the conflict’s tumultuous exit behind them. Consumed with combating the most intensive crisis of Biden’s presidency over the last few weeks, White House officials are plotting a way forward that hinges tactically on Biden’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and passage of his sweeping economic agenda on Capitol Hill. The cold political calculation is based on a belief inside the White House that Americans by and large will ultimately process the withdrawal from Afghanistan as a necessary, albeit difficult, act, even if they harbor lingering doubts about its execution.

The president has been criticized for failing to anticipate the rapid crumbling of Afghan security forces in the face of the Taliban’s advance. That caused a chaotic scene at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, where the U.S. military hurried to evacuate more than 123,000 Americans and Afghans despite being surrounded by the Taliban and ISIS-K.

How many times has Joe Biden ranted at us about why he is right on Afghanistan? I’ve lost track, but I think this at least the fifth “official” rant. But this one was the worst yet and you could feel it. He was just so angry. He’s not angry at the Taliban. He’s not angry at his own failures or those of his people. He’s angry at the people left behind. And, he’s angry at you. He’s angry at you for not simply accepting what an “extraordinary success” this all was. He keeps screaming about ending the war, a point that no one is even contesting

We’ve written about Biden checking his watch while he was at Dover AFB yesterday watching the transfer of those who died in Kabul from the airplane to the hearses (snip) Marine Lance Corporation Rylee McCollum was one of those who died. (snip) his wife, Jiennah went to meet with Biden. (snip) Roice [McCollum’s sister] said. The president brought up his son, Beau, according to her account, describing his son’s military service and subsequent death from cancer. It struck the family as scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes in ‘total disregard to the loss of our Marine,’ Roice said.

A private airplane that was flying into Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) in Kabul, Afghanistan to rescue stranded American citizens and Afghan allies allegedly was told to turn back or they would be shot down. In the past 24 hours, American officials in charge of giving clearance at the airport told fellow Americans they would be fired upon if they didn’t leave, Mary Beth Long, a former Department of Defense official, told American Greatness in an exclusive interview. (Snip) Some American citizens, she said, have made the perilous journey to HKIA four times, only to be turned away at the gates each time. As a result of the Biden Administration’s

I ask this question for two reasons: I have seen enough videos and read about enough officer-civilian interactions to know that the act of subduing a lethal threat requires several rounds. If an intruder entered my home and threatened my wife and child, I would shoot until I was able to ensure the target was immobilized. As to the first statement, there are plenty of examples of police officers firing multiple shots at a suspected threat. In the past year, the American public has been thoroughly able to parse through the shootings of criminals like Breonna Taylor and Antonio Brown, to name just two examples.

A day after the U.S. officially pulled out of Afghanistan, and less than a week after a suicide bomber killed 13 U.S. Service Members, Rep. Carlos Gimenez has just tweeted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) has blocked the names of those dead servicemen and women from being read on the floor of the House of Representatives. Rep. Brian Mast (R), a wounded combat veteran from Afghanistan, tells The Floridian that during a Republican-only “moment of silence,” Speaker Pelosi refused to recognize them to” read names or bring up bills or anything.”

The nation’s longest war – in which nearly 50,000 Afghan civilians, 2,500 US service members, and thousands of Afghan military, police and Taliban fighters were killed – “has ended,” the president said in a statement on 30 August.

"We are f*cking abandoning American citizens," Army colonel wrote in a frantic series of texts that detail how a group of Americans were rejected at airport as rescue flight awaited. President Biden declared to a puzzled country on Tuesday that the U.S. evacuation from Afghanistan was an "extraordinary success," while his Pentagon portrayed a prosaic, workaday process to repatriate Americans still stranded in the war-torn country.

Tuesday, Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan did not rule out providing aid to the Taliban following the United States’ withdrawal out of Afghanistan. Sullivan told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” that giving aid to the Taliban “will be about whether the terrorist organization follows through on its commitments,” including safe passage for Americans and Afghan allies. “[F]irst of all, we do believe that there is an important dimension of humanitarian assistance that should go directly to the people of Afghanistan,” Sullivan outlined. “They need help with respect to health and food aid and other forms of subsistence, and we do intend to continue that. Secondly, when it comes to our economic

With the final military planes off the tarmac and out of Afghan airspace, the Biden administration was desperate to try to paint their deadly disaster as some sort of success. Each of the press secretaries and top officials at the White House, State Department, and Pentagon parroted the same talking point that it was the largest airlift in U.S. history. But CBS News popped their bubble Monday as they pointed out how the “hundreds” of Americans they abandoned in the terrorist haven would beg to differ. During their Special Report break-in for the Pentagon press conference with U.S. CENTCOM General Kenneth McKenzie, senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe seemed taken aback
