Dan Crenshaw Slams Pelosi Dems for Covering for Biden on Afghanistan Disaster

When Rep. Dan Crenshaw criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a Fox News interview on Wednesday, it was much more than a response to the loggerheads moment on Capitol Hill.

It was even more than an expression of the mounting frustration and fury of American conservatives watching an inept president and his radical party engage in an orgy of destructive behavior that’s damaging the United States at home and around the world.

It was laying the groundwork for a campaign strategy for the GOP to regain power in the halls of Congress next year and bring President Joe Biden to account for an administration that’s humiliating the country.

US Left Behind Majority Of Afghan Allies Who Applied For Visas: REPORT

The U.S. abandoned more than half of all interpreters and Afghans who applied for special immigrant visas (SIV), a senior State Department official told The Wall Street Journal.

The official didn’t share specific information or figures, but estimated that a majority of the visa applicants were left behind in Afghanistan, the WSJ reported. The Department of State doesn’t have exact data on who was evacuated from the Middle Eastern nation after the Taliban took control of the capital city of Kabul, due to the urgent nature of the operation.

“I would say it’s the majority of them,” the administration official told the WSJ. “Just based on anecdotal information about the populations we were able to support.”

“Everybody who lived it is haunted by the choices we had to make and by the people we were not able to help,” the official continued.

General McKenzie Lied as U.S. Military Abandons THOUSANDS of Americans to the Taliban

It’s over. The United States military has officially, completely withdrawn from Afghanistan right on schedule. Adding insult to injury, U.S. General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. flat out lied to the world by saying “very few hundreds” of U.S. citizens were left behind and “at least 2,000 hardcore ISIS fighters” are now roaming Afghanistan.

Reports from the ground in Kabul and throughout Afghanistan indicate there are thousands of Americans stranded by the Biden regime. General McKenzie is basing his “very few hundreds” comment on those who have gone through official channels to specifically declare they want to leave and who have demonstrated they are American citizens. But many, many more were either unable to go through official channels as they evaded the Taliban or could not sufficiently prove they were American citizens. If they couldn’t fax a passport to the Embassy, they weren’t counted, according to sources at the State Department.

State Dept Contradicts Biden, Says Vast Majority Of Interpreters & Visa-Eligible Afghans Were "Left Behind"

A stunning new exposé in The Wall Street Journal contradicts just about everything the American public has been told over the past week about the supposed "extraordinary success" of America's "largest airlift in history".

"The US left behind the majority of Afghan interpreters and others who applied for visas to flee Afghanistan, a senior State Department official said on Wednesday," according to the WSJ report, which emphasizes that "as many as 100,000 Afghans may be eligible for relocation" - but the vast majority of these were left behind.

Specifically the numbers relate to those local allies who qualified for the Special Immigrant Visa. The Pentagon as of last Friday said it up to that point it had been able to only get about 7,000 Special Immigrant Visa Afghans out.

Mitch McConnell Insists Biden Won't Face Impeachment Over Disaster In Afghanistan

Offering yet another reminder of just how badly mismanaged the war in Afghanistan actually was, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that "there isn't going to be an impeachment" of President Joe Biden over the botched withdrawal of US troops and civilians from Afghanistan.

McConnell's remarks came nearly a week after a suicide bombing attack outside the Kabul Airport killed more than a dozen Marines and wounded nearly 200 people (mostly Afghans).

Having dared to ask the obvious question, Campos-Duffy gave the obvious answer. “No one knew better his state of mind than Dr. Jill Biden,” Campos continued. “And if you ask me, the most patriotic thing Jill Biden could have done was tell her husband — to love her husband — and not let him run in this mental state that he’s in.”

What Biden Told Afghan President To Do Should Be Criminal

President Joe Biden asked the now-departed Afghan president to establish the "perception" that his government was capable of holding off the Taliban - a sign he knew it was only a matter of time before the US ally fell to the Islamic group even while reassuring Americans at home that it would not happen.

In the last phone call between Biden and his Afghan then-counterpart Ashraf Ghani, the American president said they needed to shift the attention of the Taliban's rapid advance "whether it is true or not," according to citations published on Tuesday.

The call took place on July 23 - weeks before the downfall of Kabul - but Biden on Tuesday restated his statement that his team was caught flat-footed by the fast Taliban takeover of the country.

Biden’s Cover Up: Deep State Wipes Online Records of U.S. Military Equipment Given to Afghan Forces; Public Links to Reports About Quantities and Billions in Costs Are GONE

Several webpage links – detailing the cost and inventory of billions in high-tech weaponry that was handed to the Taliban – have been removed from federal websites at the request of the corrupt Biden regime.

The authoritarian decision for US agencies to hide the damaging public information comes as criticism continues to mount over their unprecedented disaster in Afghanistan.

On Tuesday, OpenTheBooks.com founder Adam Andrzejewsk revealed that State Department officials recently told other federal agencies to scrub their websites of any official report with details about the $82.9 billion in US taxpayer funds that was spent arming and training Afghan forces over the past 20 years.

Dozens of online links to reports, published by multiple agencies, are now dead.

The US will not cease its efforts to ‘remake’ other nations, the idea it is its mission to 'save' the world is etched into its DNA

In the wake of Washington’s crushing defeat in Afghanistan, Joe Biden has declared that the era of US nation building is over. But it would be a very foolish nation that let its guard down against potential 'liberation' for long.

The United States is in a conciliatory mood, and that present change of heart should surprise nobody. Licking its multiple wounds after a 20-year brawl in the graveyard of empires, which cost Washington a mind-boggling $2 trillion, the Taliban is not only still in power, but it’s inherited a brand new army thanks to the shocking incompetence of its superpower rival.

FDA in Rebellion Over White House's Rushed 'Booster' Plans

The Biden administration's decisions over when to administer coronavirus vaccine boosters are triggering turmoil within the Food and Drug Administration, frustrating regulators and sparking fear that political pressures will once again override the agency's expertise.

FDA officials are scrambling to collect and analyze data that clearly demonstrate the boosters' benefits before the administration's Sept. 20 deadline for rolling them out to most adults. Many outside experts, and some within the agency, see uncomfortable similarities between the Biden team's top-down booster plan and former President Donald Trump's attempts to goad FDA into accelerating its initial authorization process for Covid-19 vaccines and push through unproven virus treatments.

Biden Calls Texas Anti-Abortion Law Unconstitutional, Vows to Fight It

Unlike previous attempts to ban abortion in some states, the latest law empowers regular citizens, instead of authorities, to sue people involved in abortion in exchange for a reword if the case is won in court. The US Supreme Court has not struck down the legislation as unconstitutional so far.

US President Joe Biden has harshly criticised the recently passed anti-abortion Texas Senate Bill 8, calling it unconstitutional. The Democrat POTUS vowed to challenge it and fight for the preservation of abortion rights granted by the landmark Roe v. Wade case.

"The Texas law will significantly impair women’s access to the health care they need, particularly for communities of color and individuals with low incomes. And, outrageously, it deputizes private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone who they believe has helped another person get an abortion", Biden said.

7 Examples That Show How Completely And Utterly Insane Our Society Has Become

Reading the news has become like going to a freak show. You never know what you are going to see each day, but it is almost certainly going to be nutty. Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article are weird, others are infuriating, but they all point to the same conclusion. From the very top to the very bottom, America is going crazy. And I mean that in the worst way possible. We truly have become an “idiocracy”, and it seems like those that are the most incompetent of all are often rewarded by being elevated to the top of the food chain.

Biden’s promise to stop interfering in other countries is a lie. He’ll double-down on the US’s global drone assassination program

The idea that the US is weaning itself off endless wars and effecting regime changes is – sadly – not true. It will just keep doing it remotely, in continuing violation of international law.

US President Joe Biden on Tuesday night announced the end of the longest war in American history, the 20-year long occupation of Afghanistan. Praising his country’s retreat from the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ just days after a devastating bombing that left 13 US soldiers dead (and scores more Afghans, the majority of which may have been killed by US soldiers), Biden struck a defiant tone against critics.

He said that the “vital reason” why Washington invaded Afghanistan in the first place was to make sure the country can never be used again to launch an attack on the United States, referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that took place in 2001. According to Biden, the US succeeded in its mission a decade ago and should have left sooner.

Watch: Blinken Touts ‘New Diplomatic Mission’ After Abandoning Afghan Allies to the Taliban

During his press conference on Monday following the withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said America will now lead the region “with diplomacy,” seemingly oblivious to the fact that the Biden administration just abandoned hundreds if not thousands of Afghan allies to the Taliban.

On Monday, the Biden administration completed its evacuation of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, leaving the country under the complete control of the Taliban while an unknown number of Americans and Afghan allies remain stranded in the region.

Echoing the words of Gen. McKenzie, Blinken announced that the next mission in Afghanistan will be one of diplomacy despite the fact that the U.S. has no diplomatic presence in the region and has left its few remaining allies to fend for themselves:

China Insists The US "Pay Its Share" In Afghan Reconstruction While "Reflecting On Failure"

China is pledging support to the Taliban government now in charge of Afghanistan for reconstruction of the country, but is continuing to add insult to injury in the wake of the disastrous US evacuation and pullout from Kabul of the last two weeks.

"China has pledged to help reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan after American troops have completely withdrawn, but demands that Washington also pay its share," The South China Morning Post writes in a Tuesday report. China's foreign ministry went so far as to demand that Washington "reflect on its failure" after closing down its longest running war in history.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin issued scathing criticism during a press briefing Tuesday, saying the United States' starting the war in Afghanistan in the first place is ultimately "the reason for public livelihood and economic difficulty in the nation."

24 Students, 3-Year-Old California Boy Among Americans Stranded In Afghanistan

If the Biden administration's estimate of 'close to 100' people stranded in Afghanistan is even remotely accurate, around 25% of them are students, along with a three-year-old boy from Sacramento, California.

As the Sacramento Bee reports, San Juan Unified school district staff confirmed that 24 students are stranded in Afghanistan.

"Our office has been in close contact with the San Juan Unified School District, and have urgently flagged the students’ information with the State Department and Department of Defense," said staffers from Sacramento Congressman Ami Bera's office, adding "We have not received an update from the State Department or the DOD."

It’s unclear when more Sacramento-area residents will board flights to return from Kabul. It’s been more than two weeks since Taliban leaders took control of country’s capital.

Sep 01 06:35


President Biden in June waived a congressional mandate that would have required the Pentagon to provide members of Congress with a detailed report about the risks of leaving Afghanistan.

The Biden administration under the federal statute was barred from reducing troops in Afghanistan to less than 2,000 without first briefing Congress about the expected impact on U.S. counterterrorism operations and the risk to American personnel.

However, Biden waived the mandate, arguing that providing this information to Congress could undermine "the national security interests of the United States," according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The administration reportedly assured Congress for months that U.S.-trained Afghan forces could forestall a Taliban takeover when U.S. troops left. However, the Taliban overran the Afghan National Army and took control of Kabul on Aug. 15, as the last troops were leaving, resulting in the chaotic and deadly evacuation of U.S. personnel and allies.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama/Biden Reinstituting Program of Bringing Non-Vetted Illegals Into the US and Using ‘Non-Profits’ to Move Them Around the US

n early 2017, as President Trump was stepping into the White House, Obama’s policies of bringing unvetted Middle Easterners into the US was in full force. Today these insane policies are again in full force.

In March of 2017, we reported on Obama’s policies of bringing unvetted individuals from Middle Eastern countries into the US. These individuals are received overnight and sent to states across the Union where they were given food, clothing, housing, and passports. The social service agencies in these states obliged because they would lose their funding if they didn’t.

Over the past two weeks, the world has looked on in ominous horror at emotive scenes of Afghans desperately clinging to departing US warplanes in a bid to escape incoming Taliban rule, as the Washington-led occupation of the Middle Eastern nation draws to a close after 20 years; a situation exacerbated even further by Thursday’s suicide attack on Kabul airport, resulting in the deaths of 169 Afghan civilians and 13 members of US occupation forces, and subsequently claimed by the hitherto little-known ISIS-K (Khorasan) group, the Afghanistan branch of the wider Salafist network based mainly in Iraq and Syria.

‘We are Not Done With You Yet,’ Biden Threatens More Airstrikes Against ISIS-K in Afghanistan

On Tuesday, President Biden delivered a speech on the Afghanistan withdrawal that was completed on Monday and threatened more airstrikes against the country’s ISIS affiliate, known as ISIS-K.

Since the US closed down its major bases in Afghanistan, it has been flying airstrikes from outside of the country, what the Pentagon is calling “over the horizon capabilities.”

“We have what’s called over the horizon capabilities, which means we can strike terrorists and targets without American boots on the ground, or very few if needed. We’ve shown that capacity just in the last week. We struck ISIS-K remotely,” Biden said. “And to ISIS-K, we are not done with you yet.”

Biden Cites ‘Serious Competition With China’ as a Reason to Leave Afghanistan

Defending his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan on Tuesday, President Biden said the “world is changing” and that the US is now “engaged in a serious competition with China.”

Since coming into office, President Biden has frequently framed China as an ideological competitor, and his Pentagon has identified Beijing as the top “pacing threat” facing the US military.

While the priority appears to be China, the US is also focused on confronting Russia. This reflects the 2018 National Defense Strategy, which outlined the shift away from “counterterrorism” towards so-called “great power competition” with China and Russia. Biden said the US was facing “challenges” from Russia on “multiple fronts.”

“There’s nothing China or Russia would rather have, would want more in this competition than the United States to be bogged down another decade in Afghanistan,” Biden said.

Biden Pledges $60 Million in Military Aid to Ukraine

The Biden administration has pledged to provide Ukraine with an additional $60 million in military aid ahead of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s first face-to-face meeting with Biden, which is scheduled for Wednesday.

The weapons package includes Javelin anti-tank missiles, small arms, ammunition, and first aid kits. Earlier this year, the Pentagon approved a $125 million aid package for Ukraine that included two armed Mark VI patrol boats.

Congress approved a total of $275 million in lethal aid for Ukraine for the 2021 fiscal year, so more packages could be approved this year. Since the US-backed coup in Ukraine in 2014, the US has provided Kyiv with over $2 billion in military aid, stoking tensions with Moscow.

Barely Out of Afghanistan, Now America Is Supposed To Save Tigray From Ethiopia and Eritrea?

To most Americans the collapse of Afghanistan called into question Washington’s ability to manage the world. After devoting 20 years, thousands of lives, and trillions of dollars to creating a stable, democratic, and liberal Afghanistan, the entire Potemkin structure collapsed in 11 days.

Hundreds of thousands fled as the Taliban successively captured provincial capitals. Tens of thousands thronged the Kabul airport in a desperate effort to escape the newly proclaimed Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. If only a few of them had joined the security forces that were supposed to sustain their country, instead of leaving the fight to those who decided the regime was not worth defending, perhaps the outcome would have been different.

By any measure, the amount of benefits being proposed is staggering, which begs the question, how will we pay for all of this? By increasing IRS enforcement, by increasing reporting obligations for financial institutions, and by raising taxes on the wealthy. Each aspect of this plan is worthy of its own column.

‘BURN IN HELL’: Families of slain troops RAGE at Biden as Facebook suspends grieving mother after angry posts aimed at president

Several parents of the US Marines killed by a suicide bomber in Kabul have vented their anger at President Joe Biden, with Facebook intervening to censor one mother’s rant.
Biden traveled to Dover Air Force Base in his home state of Delaware on Sunday to pay respect to the 13 slain American service members arriving back from Afghanistan in flag-draped coffins. The reception from some parents, however, was hostile.

The meeting “didn’t go well,” Mark Schmitz, father of 20-year-old Marine Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday. Biden “talked a bit more about his own son than he did my son, and that didn't sit well with me,” Schmitz added, referring to Biden's well-reported habit of bringing up his own late son while empathizing with the families of fallen veterans.

For the US, India is little more than a pawn to be deployed against China – not a nation to be respected on its own terms

The US is desperate to recruit allies in its hybrid war against China, and highly covets New Delhi - which has its own issues with Beijing - as a useful partner. So why is Washington so unhelpful and discourteous to its ally?
Friends with benefits

It is often said that the US has no permanent allies – only permanent interests. Allies come and allies go, but US national interest (i.e. global hegemony) remains paramount. All relationships are transactional – an ally is only as good as the geopolitical benefits they bring. The US regime makes friends and enemies based on strategic concerns alone, and with little concern for morality.

“It is time for action,” Boebert said. “Impeach Biden, impeach Kamala Harris, and throw in the secretary of state if you can get him back from vacation,” she added in reference to the Washington Post timeline that revealed Blinken was away at the Hamptons the Friday before Afghanistan’s government collapsed.

Pollak: We Heard About Khizr Khan for Years, but Biden’s the One Who Insults Gold Star Families

Several Gold Star families have expressed how furious they were with President Joe Biden at the dignified transfer of the remains of 13 service members on Sunday.

Not only did many feel his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan led to their loved ones’ deaths, but they also noted that Biden seemed aloof, and self-absorbed, repeating stories about the loss of his own son from brain cancer, or — shockingly — checking his watch, as if he could not wait for these encounters to end.

Bidens appalling treatment of families whose loved ones had just died in the service of the country — and on a mission that would not have been necessary had he managed the withdrawal competently– stands in stark contrast to how President Donald Trump comforted the families of the fallen.

Afghan interpreter who ‘helped save Biden’ in 2008 pleads for rescue after being left behind

The Afghan interpreter who helped retrieve then-senator Joe Biden from the mountains of Afghanistan in 2008 has been left behind after the US withdrew from Kabul, and is reportedly now begging the White House to be rescued.

“Hello Mr. President: Save me and my family,” the Wall Street Journal quoted the man, whose name was given only as Mohammed, in an exclusive report on Tuesday. “Don’t forget me here.”

Now 36, Mohammed was the interpreter for the 82nd Airborne force that was deployed from Bagram Air Field to rescue Biden and his colleagues John Kerry (D-Massachusetts) and Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) in February 2008, when their helicopter made an emergency landing in Afghanistan during a bad snowstorm.

President Joe Biden has faced criticism for yet another ‘racial’ stumble, after calling a black man who serves as a White House senior adviser a “boy” during a FEMA briefing on hurricane damage in Louisiana.

“I’m here with, uh, my senior adviser and, uh, boy who knows Louisiana very, very well, man, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond,” Biden said on Monday as he prepared to begin the FEMA press briefing.

Biden Declares End To 'Forever Wars' In Afghan Exit

President Joe Biden made a forceful defense Tuesday of his "wise" decision to leave Afghanistan, telling Americans he refuses to send another generation to fight in a "forever war."

The traumatic departure from Afghanistan, completed Monday after 20 years of war against the Taliban, was "a wise decision and the best decision for America," Biden said in an address to the nation.

After coming under fire from Republican opponents over the chaotic nature of the rush to the exits in Afghanistan, Biden said he did what should have been done years ago.

"I was not going to extend this forever war and I was not extending a forever exit," he said.

The evacuation, he said, was an "extraordinary success."

A former FBI special agent who tracked counterterrorism cases warned that terrorists in Afghanistan stand a high chance of being able to walk right onto the U.S.-bound planes as a result of the Biden administration's dissemination of blank visa papers.

“The threat of having Islamic State or al Qaeda come into the country is not increased through the southwest border,” warned Kenneth Gray, a senior lecturer in the Fire Science and Emergency Management Department at the University of New Haven in Connecticut.

“It’s the entry of al Qaeda and Islamic State in the groups of refugees that are being taken out of Afghanistan and possibly to the United States because of the lack of vetting procedures that would normally go on to expedite getting all of these people out of Afghanistan," he stressed.

Biden-Bennett summit a meeting of wishful thinkers who oppose Netanyahu

US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's meeting on Friday was full of niceties with the aim of projecting an image of true friendship. But practically speaking, it was the convergence of two narratives of wishful thinking.

It was the first meeting between the two newly-elected leaders, who have a 30-year age gap and share very little in common in terms of values, world view, or policies.

If there is anything that binds together Biden, who entered the White House seven months ago, with Bennett who has led a very narrow and fragile coalition since June, it is their mutual nemesis, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

US Foreign Policy = War

US President Joe Biden this weekend warned Iran that “other options” will be used if the failed nuclear deal is not restored through diplomacy.

In American official parlance, “other options” is a polite way of threatening to use military force.

The threat is all the more sinister given that Biden uttered the words while sitting beside Israeli premier Naftali Bennett in the White House. Israel has repeatedly vowed to launch military strikes on Iran even if the United States signs up again to a nuclear accord with Tehran.

That’s the nuclear treaty signed in 2015 by the US, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia along with Iran. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) imposed restrictions on Iran’s nuclear industry preventing weaponization. In return, harsh international economic sanctions would supposedly be lifted off Iran.

Gantz: US, Israel Working on ‘Plan B’ if Iran Nuclear Talks Fail

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said the US and Israel are working to develop a “Plan B” for if the indirect negotiations to revive the Iran nuclear deal fail.

According to The Times of Israel, Gantz warned if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it would trigger an “international arms race,” a comment that ignores the fact that Israel already has a nuclear arsenal and is the only nuclear-armed country in the Middle East.

“The United States and Israel share intelligence information, and the cooperation with the United States in this field is only getting stronger. We are working with them in order to establish a Plan B and to demonstrate that if there is no deal, other activities will begin, as President Biden said,” Gantz said.

Biden and Bennett tone down US-Israel relations

When Benjamin Netanyahu met a U.S. president, there was always an air of tension. Whether it was caused by the rancorous relationship between Netanyahu and Barack Obama or the lovefest with Donald Trump that set Democrats’ teeth gnashing, there was always some discomfort on Capitol Hill.

New Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was determined to strike a very different tone in his first meeting with President Joe Biden on Friday. He aimed to mend the fences Netanyahu tore asunder between Israel and the Democratic Party, while also avoiding the appearance of acquiescence to Biden in areas where they differ on policy, most notably the Iran nuclear deal and the prospect of a Palestinian state. His success was unqualified.

Biden's gambling on another death tax to fund his budget goals

Our nation's job creators have endured an economic calamity unlike anything we have ever seen in modern times — the crushing blow of COVID. In response, President Joe Biden promised to “Build Back Better” America’s economic growth and prosperity opportunities. But his proposed American Families Plan threatens the very foundations of those opportunities — a foundation long supported by small businesses across America.

Republican and Democratic presidents before Biden offered plans to sustain America's greatness; however, these goals often become lost in the bureaucracy of Washington's partisan fights. The real tension is about who sacrifices and pays for the cost of prosperity.

Psaki says deaths of 13 US troops don’t ‘take place of all the PROGRESS’ made in Kabul as Biden takes flak for Afghan nightmare

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has set off online outrage by suggesting the killing of 13 US troops in last week’s Kabul airport bombing was an acceptable price to pay for the Biden administration’s evacuation ‘successes.’

“The men and women who gave their lives... that doesn’t take the place of all of the progress, all of the work that’s been done to evacuate people,” Psaki said on Sunday in a press briefing. She added that the 13 fallen service members sacrificed their lives to save thousands of people, “and that is something that should be honored, should be valued, and we will continue to look for ways to do that.”

Biden praises US military for success of Afghanistan airlift, says diplomacy will rescue those left behind

Thanking the US military for ending the withdrawal from Afghanistan “with no further loss of American lives,” President Joe Biden asked the country to pray for everyone involved, including refugees, until his address tomorrow.

“I want to thank our commanders and the men and women serving under them for their execution of the dangerous retrograde from Afghanistan as scheduled – in the early morning hours of August 31, Kabul time – with no further loss of American lives,” Biden said in a statement the White House released on Monday evening, after the Pentagon confirmed the last US planes had left Kabul.

More bad polls for Biden: More than a third of voters believe Biden will leave at least 500 Americans behind in Afghanistan and HALF say sticking to Aug. 31 deadline was a poor decision

Voters have turned against President Joe Biden on his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, according to a poll published on Monday, with more than a third believing that more than 500 Americans will be left behind after the August 31 deadline.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey found that only 32 per cent of likely voters rated the Biden administration’s handling of the current situation in Afghanistan to be good or excellent. Some 52% said it was poor.

The numbers come after Biden's worst week in office.

Biden Botches Meeting with Pregnant Widow of Dead Marine, Talks About Son Beau In 2-Minute Convo

Joe Biden met with the families of the fallen U.S. military members over the weekend, and the meeting was reportedly an unsurprising disaster.

13 U.S. service members were killed last Thursday in a suicide blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul due to Biden’s catastrophic handling of the military withdrawal of Afghanistan.

Biden’s meeting with the pregnant widow of 20-year-old Marine Rylee McCollum went particularly bad.

The remains of the 13 US troops killed in an ISIS-K suicide blast are currently the Dover Air Force Base for dignified transfer, according to the Pentagon.

The Pentagon declined to confirm whether President Joe Biden would attend the dignified transfer at the base in Delaware, his home state, which is the domestic intake point for US military fatalities abroad.

‘Sleepy Joe’ Trends on Twitter as Biden Appears to Fall Asleep During Talks With Israel’s Bennett

The US president met the Israeli prime minister on Friday, with their conversation focusing on the two countries’ “historic partnership”, COVID cooperation, and the supposed “threat” to Israel and the Middle East “posed by Iran”.

"Sleepy Joe" trended on Twitter in the United States over the past 24 hours over a video showing US President Joe Biden looking like he’s literally fallen asleep during a conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet during the latter’s Friday visit to the White House.

The viral footage, captured by CSPAN and other media and shared countless times, features a masked, almost completely motionless, Biden clasping his hands and slumped over with his eyes shut for nearly 30 seconds as Bennett drones on about writing “another chapter in the beautiful story of the friendship between our two nations”.

Iran’s Leader Blasts Biden as ‘Predatory Wolf’ No Different Than Trump Amid Stalled Nuclear Talks

On the campaign trail in 2020 and in his first months in office, Joe Biden promised to return the US to the 2018 Iran nuclear deal and slash sanctions against Tehran in exchange for a commitment by Iran to reduce its uranium stockpiling and enrichment activities. The two sides have held indirect talks on the issue, but these stalled in late June.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has slammed President Biden over his administration’s intransigence on negotiations relating to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Iran nuclear deal, accusing the current White House of being “no different” from the Trump administration, under which Iran-US relations collapsed to a historic post-1979 low.

ABC’s Karl: Biden Admin Is ‘Describing Something That Isn’t Reality’ While Spinning Afghanistan ‘Disaster’

ABC News’ Jon Karl said Sunday on “This Week” that the Biden administration is attempting to spin the evacuation in Afghanistan.

Guest anchor Martha Raddatz said, “Jon, I want to talk to you first here. Listening to President Biden in his top national security advisers before the horrible bombing, they were making this sound like a smashing success, but you heard what Secretary Blinken just said.”

Karl said, “They have been describing something that isn’t reality. This has been an incredible airlift. More than 100,000 people evacuated, but what a disaster. Clearly, Thursday was the worst day of the Biden presidency, and we don’t really know, Martha, how bad it really is. We know the disaster that has unfolded. Now the big question is, does Afghanistan once again become a safe haven for terrorist attacks on U.S. interests around the world or at home?”

Raddatz said, “Which is, of course, why they said they were getting out. that was solved.”

Ben Sasse: ‘Biden Has Been Repeatedly Disconnected from Reality’ in Afghanistan

Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that President Joe Biden relied on “happy talk” instead of dealing with the reality of the situation in Afghanistan.

Sasse said, “There is clearly no plan. There has been no plan. Their plan has basically been happy talk. People have died, and people are going to die because President Biden decided to rely on happy talk instead of reality. And so they decided to outsource security around the perimeter of the airport to the Taliban.”

He continued, “They passed a list of American citizens and America’s closest allies, people who fought alongside us, they passed those lists to the Taliban, relying on them, thinking they could trust on them. It was stupid then. It’s insane now. And their plan still seems to be, ‘Let’s rely on the Taliban because the Taliban cares a lot about what world opinion thinks of them at French restaurants.’ It was a disgusting revelation of yet again no plan.”

Report: Taliban Offered Biden Control of Kabul, but He Declined

The chaos in Afghanistan could have reportedly been avoided altogether if President Joe Biden had accepted the Taliban’s initial offer for the U.S. to have full control of Kabul and the airport.

According to a report from the Washington Post, as the Taliban began taking control of Afghanistan, senior U.S. military leaders met with Taliban political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar in Doha, Qatar, where an offer was made for the United States to have control of Kabul until all U.S. troops had withdrawn; the offer was declined. From the report:

In a hastily arranged in-person meeting, senior U.S. military leaders in Doha – including McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command – spoke with Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of the Taliban’s political wing.

“We have a problem,” Baradar said, according to the U.S. official. “We have two options to deal with it: You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Thursday, Rep.

The Republican congressman began with harsh words for the current administration.

“I am so tired of being disgusted with what is going on in our country in general, but with this administration, with this Congress, it’s been mistake after mistake,” he said.

“There’s nothing at all in what they do that reminds me of American exceptionalism or Americanism, and the same here,” he added. “The America I know is strong and powerful and brave, courageous and smart.”

Fox News’ Lara Logan Eviscerates Biden For ‘Basically Condemning American Citizens And Our Allies To Our Death’ In Afghanistan

Fox News host Lara Logan fired back at President Joe Biden on Tuesday after he caved to the Taliban and agreed not to extend the August 31st deadline to remove all US forces from Afghanistan.

Lara Logan Sounds Off

“What President Biden is doing is basically condemning American citizens to death in Afghanistan. He is condemning our American allies to death in Afghanistan … you start to feel like you are in the twilight zone, Harris,” Logan told her fellow host Fox News Harris Faulkner.

“Can you imagine the deputy commander of the Taliban, the head of the Haqqani Network, Siraj Haqqani,” she added. “They are the Afghan al Qaeda. He swore allegiance, loyalty to Osama bin Laden. Haqqani’s manifesto, that he released more than a decade ago, is exactly al Qaeda’s manifesto.”

The fatal failure of Gen. Mark A. Milley over closing Bagram Air Base

Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, must go.

President Biden claims that the military advised him to close Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and instead use Kabul’s airport to evacuate Americans. They were the ones who said the Afghan army would hold, that the pullout would go smoothly.

If Biden is telling the truth, this disaster is on Milley’s watch. Or Biden is lying (the more likely scenario, based on what sources inside the administration are saying) and Milley failed to do his duty and push back against a commander-in-chief who is making deadly decisions. Either way, he is derelict in his duty — and must either take responsibility for what went wrong or tell Americans the truth about their president.

Video: Biden Refuses to Answer Questions on Afghanistan, Gets Lost on Way Out During FEMA Remarks

Having finished his speech at a Sunday FEMA meeting on the disastrous Hurricane Ida, Joe Biden initiated a little off-script action, offering reporters who were willing to ask questions to "go ahead" even though he was "not supposed to take any questions".

However, the mood for taking questions swiftly disappeared after the first one appeared to be about Afghanistan.

"I'm not going to answer on Afghanistan now", Biden snapped, slapping his hand on the desk and immediately deciding to head out.

The president had trouble finding the right direction to go and was assisted by an aide. The combination of his revelation that he was not "supposed" to do something, his refusal to take Afghanistan-related questions, along with the desk slap and the immediate departure caused some confusion and bewilderment.

Iran Says Biden Illegally Threatened Tehran During Bennett Meeting

On Saturday, an Iranian official said President Biden illegally threatened Iran during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that took place in Washington on Friday.

Alongside Bennett, Biden told reporters that if “diplomacy fails” with Iran, the US was ready to “turn to other options.”

Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, denounced Biden’s choice of words on Twitter. “The emphasis on using ‘other options’ against [Iran] amounts to threatening another country illegally and establishes Iran’s right to reciprocate … against ‘available options,'” Shamkhani wrote.

Iran’s fears of being attacked by Israel or the US are not unfounded. Israel frequently attacks Iran covertly, and these missions are tacitly endorsed by Washington since the US never condemns them. Ahead of his meeting with Biden, Bennett told The New York Times that Israel will continue clandestine attacks against Iran.

Kabul Attack Biden's "Worst Nightmare", He'll "Have To Go Back In" - Says Obama's CIA Director

Having beheld a disastrous two-decade long failed war and occupation, with immense US blood and treasure lost, and over $2.3 trillion spent and counting - and now with horrific suicide blasts killing over 100 people including 13 US troops during the chaotic exit - the national security state hawks are already pushing for Washington to get straight back into the fight.

Former CIA chief and ex-Defense Secretary under Obama, Leon Panetta, is urging just that. On the day of the twin suicide attacks at Kabul airport he went on CNN to say President Biden will have to "go back in" if he wants to avenge the deaths of Americans on Thursday.

The vast majority of students who said they voted for or supported Biden’s nomination expressed regret for supporting him.

One student said, “He’s failed a lot on a lot of his promises”.

Another, speaking on Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, called it a “disaster."

When asked about Biden’s “Build Back Better” campaign slogan, students were not convinced he had done so.

“If you’re looking at the straight facts, it’s apparent that he’s not [building back better],” one student said.

Dem Rep Who Travelled to Kabul Blasts Biden Admin's Handling of Pullout as 'Total F**king Disaster'

Two US Representatives, Democrat Seth Moulton, and Republican Peter Meijer took an audacious and unauthorized trip to Afghanistan earlier in the week to "oversee" the ongoing evacuation. The move prompted debate and reportedly angered officials at the Pentagon and the US State Department.

Democrat Seth Moulton, just back from Afghanistan, shared unflattering comments on his interpretation of how the ongoing evacuation is organized, speaking to New York Magazine.

“The thing that everybody needs to understand, even if you completely agree with the Biden administration’s decision to withdraw, the way they have handled this has been a total f**king disaster,” said Moulton. “It will be measured in bodies, because a lot of people are dying because they can’t get out.”

Biden Admin Says Likely Americans Will Be Left Behind

During a White House press conference on Wednesday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned about the possibility of Americans being stranded in Afghanistan after August 31, and whether or not the White House has plans in place to rescue them after that date expires.

"Well, I would say first, we've sent out, as Secretary Blinken noted, 19 messages to American citizens over the course of the last few months," he replied. "We’ve also done a great deal of outreach and advertising, providing information for anyone who wants to leave, including the offering of financial assistance in recent weeks for people who want to leave Afghanistan."

Blinken also “emphasized that Israelis and Palestinians alike deserve equal measures of freedom, prosperity, and dignity, which is important in its own right and as a means to advance prospects for a two-state solution,” according to a statement by State Department spokesman Ned Price.

Israel’s potential place on the U.S. visa waiver list also came up, with the two agreeing to advance the issue and “on the importance of working toward Israel’s inclusion … to benefit both U.S. citizens and Israeli citizens.”

“Our guidance continues to be to all American citizens, including elected officials, this is not the time to travel to Afghanistan,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (CA); Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Mike Rogers (AL); and Michael McCaul (TX) sent a letter to Biden on Wednesday that said:

The ongoing chaos in Afghanistan profoundly concerns the American people. The horrifying scenes on the ground and the resulting erosion of America’s worldwide geostrategic position raise troubling questions about your administration’s ability to competently manage a major foreign crisis.

As elected officials, our primary duty is to protect the American people. Thus, we were shocked to hear White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declare that no Americans are stranded in Afghanistan.

As evacuation efforts entered their final hours, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace appeared to signal in a briefing to MPs that there are few places left on British planes.

There are also warnings of an increased terror risk from jihadists ISIS-K, with US officials last night saying there was a 'very real risk' of an attack by the terror group who are the Taliban's rivals. .

‘Disaster… bigger than Saigon’: US Afghan war veteran who lost both legs slams Biden’s ‘horrendous’ exit strategy in RT interview

The US pullout from Afghanistan has been “completely botched” and demonstrates Washington’s lack of political will to do things right, a US Afghan war veteran told RT, adding that the war lasted for too long in the first place.

The way the American troops withdrew from Afghanistan was “a blunder on a worldwide scale” that made many Afghan war veterans feel “let down” and “angry,” Gabriel E. Martinez, a veteran who served in the United States Marine Corps and lost both of his legs to a mine blast in Afghanistan, told RT.

This is a disaster. This is bigger than Saigon.

The chaotic withdrawal, which saw the US troops abandoning their military equipment and munitions at their Afghan bases and virtually leaving thousands of civilians who worked with the US and its allies to their fate was a wrong move on all accounts, Martinez believes.

During his Thursday remarks on the terrorist bombings in Kabul that killed 12 US soldiers and dozens of Afghan civilians, US President Joe Biden at one point took questions from reporters, performing the action, however, in a way that immediately became a viral topic of discussion.

Putin Reportedly Rebuffed Biden’s Push to Put US Troops in Central Asia Amid Afghan Withdrawal

After announcing plans to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan by September this spring, the Biden administration sent out diplomatic feelers to the nations of Central Asia to discuss whether the latter might be interested in hosting American soldiers.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told US President Joe Biden flat out at their Geneva summit in June that Moscow would be opposed to the deployment of US forces in Central Asia, the Wall Street Journal has reported, citing senior US and Russian officials said to be familiar with the matter.

According to the paper’s sources, Putin told Biden at their 16 June meeting that Russia would reject "any US military role" in Central Asia and that China would also oppose any such plans. One official said that Putin "emphasised the point" of keeping US forces out of the region even though Biden "didn’t seek Mr. Putin’s support" on the matter.

Disgrace: Weak Biden Struggles Through Remarks After 13 Americans Killed

The day 13 American service members and an unknown number of Afghans were killed by suicide bombings in Kabul, Afghanistan, President Joe Biden was 25 minutes late to address the nation in a roaming speech marked with labored breathing and a few choked-up moments.

Biden said he's "outraged as well as heartbroken" after "ISIS-K took the lives of service members standing guard at the airport" in Kabul Thursday.

"These American service members who gave their lives" in Kabul "were heroes," Biden said. "Heroes who've been engaged in the dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others." The dangerous mission is, of course, the result of the Biden administration's misreading of intelligence that led the world to watch Afghanistan fall to the Taliban in a matter of days.

Former White House Doctor: Biden's cognitive 'issues' worsening Afghanistan chaos

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), the former White House doctor for Presidents Obama and Trump, told Just the News that President Biden has cognitive "issues" that are worsening the situation in Afghanistan during the evacuation of U.S. citizens and Afghan allies and "impacting our safety and our national security."

Jackson previously called for Biden to take the same cognitive exam that he administered to former President Donald Trump. Given the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan as the U.S. military withdraws from the country, Jackson argued that Biden's cognitive issues are now clear.

"I still believe that needs to happen, but the reality is I don't even think it's to the point where he needs a test anymore," Jackson said on Wednesday after criticizing Biden for claiming Al-Qaeda is no longer in Afghanistan. "I think he's proven to the entire country right now that he has issues and these issues are impacting our safety and our national security.

'He Needs to Resign': Biden's Joking Response to Afghanistan Evacuation Question Raises Eyebrows

Amid the chaotic evacuation of Americans and NATO states citizens – as well as their Afghan allies – Joe Biden's administration is under pressure to extend the deadline for getting people out of Afghanistan beyond 31 August. This date has been called a "red line" by the Taliban*.

US President Joe Biden has been branded “terrible” and a “callous human being” after he gave a sarcastic answer to an NBC reporter asking about the fate of Americans in Afghanistan.

NBC's Peter Alexander asked the POTUS during a cybersecurity summit on Wednesday what he would do if any US citizens remained in the country after the 31 August deadline to get them out expires.

“You'll be the first person I call,” Biden joked in response.

Erik Prince, 52, was described on Wednesday by White House press secretary Jen Psaki as having no soul, and of profiting from 'people's agony and pain'.

Yet Prince, who founded Blackwater in 1997, reminded that Tucker Carlson his team rescued Biden himself.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that 'of course' the US policy is still not to negotiate with terrorists, as Biden administration officials say they are relying on the Taliban to allow safe passage of Americans and American allies to Kabul airport.

'Why haven't we heard the president say, 'The United States does not negotiate with terrorists?' Is that still U.S. policy?' Fox News' Peter Doocy asked the press secretary at a daily briefing.

'Well, of course it is, Peter,' Psaki replied. 'But I would also say that there's a reality that the Taliban is currently controlling large swaths of Afghanistan. That is the reality on the ground, and right now our focus and our priority is getting American citizens evacuated and our Afghan partners evacuated.'

The parameters of the tumultuous Afghan exodus are becoming both clearer and more muddled at the same time. Most American and Western citizens will get out on evacuation flights.

Many Afghans, if they have proof they worked with the US and European countries, will also get away.

The total numbers could reach 200,000 or more. Some 88,000, mostly Afghans, along with several thousand foreigners, have been ferried from the country since August 14.

As the clock ticks down to the August 31 deadline for US and other foreign forces to leave Afghanistan, the complications are mounting up.

China to cushion Taliban from Western sanctions

This week will stand out as a pivotal moment in Joe Biden’s presidency. It has been a humble moment yet bold and decisive, farsighted but tactical, and focused on America’s self-interests.

It underscores that the United States’ capacity to force its will on other countries – or even non-state actors – has dramatically diminished.

To Biden’s detractors and critics, this might seem a moment of weakness – that CIA director William Burns had to travel to Kabul to seek a concession from the Taliban leadership to extend the August 31 deadline for the evacuations at Kabul Airport, which Taliban political chief Mullah Ghani Baradar plainly refused.

Nonetheless, Biden belongs to the pantheon of world statesmen who have shown the ability to make difficult decisions and hold the line. He is utterly convinced that continuing the war in Afghanistan would damage America’s priorities of national regeneration.

Biden needs friendly meeting with Israeli P.M. ‘desperately’ — Israel lobby advises White House

Tomorrow, the new American President Joe Biden is due to have his first meeting (ever, reportedly) with the new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett; and the Israel lobby is working hard to argue that the American president needs Bennett a lot more than Bennett needs him, so as to shore up his battered reputation internationally post-Afghanistan.

So the U.S. should do even more for Israel, and offer lip service on the principle that Biden said was at the core of his foreign policy– human rights– when it comes to Palestinians living under conditions leading human rights groups agree is apartheid and the ICC is investigating as war crimes.

Aaron David Miller at CNN writes that Biden needs this meeting “desperately.” Why? Because the Afghanistan crisis has damaged U.S. relationships with allies and Biden can “project the confidence and assurance of a president consulting closely with a core US partner.”

Speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Blinken said as many as 1,500 Americans are awaiting evacuation in Afghanistan following the 4,500 Americans who have been airlifted out of the country so far.
