Afghanistan Burns While Joe Biden Takes a Vacation!

Afghanistan Burns While Joe Biden Takes a Vacation!

Afghanistan is being consumed in death and flames, and where is our illustrious Commander-in-Chief? On freaking vacation!

Republican members of Congress have been very critical of President Biden – and rightfully so — for spending time at the Camp David presidential retreat instead of the White House as the Taliban fought to finalize a takeover of Afghanistan.

“Why is Joe Biden on vacation?” asked Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “I don’t think he’s taken one question from the press this entire weekend, so this is a frightening situation.”

It was confirmed on Sunday morning that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country as Taliban fighters entered Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul.

Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., accused Biden of “dereliction of duty.” Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., and Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., also echoed the criticism.

Camp David has historically been used both for work and relaxation by U.S. presidents and is fully equipped with secure video-conferencing technology. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last week that Biden “likes Camp David.”

“It’s a place to be outside, spend time with family, and certainly has beautiful, beautiful scenery there,” Psaki continued.

Two House Democrats also took to Twitter to blast the Biden administration for how they handled the Afghanistan withdrawal.

Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota said, “As a Gold Star son of the Vietnam War listening to the White House briefing on the Afghanistan War withdrawal, my heart particularly aches for the thousands of Gold Star families of an eerily similar and painful episode forty-six years later,” referring to Saigon.

“There’s no way to hide it. The situation in Afghanistan is another shame on this admin. Withdrawal was never going to be easy, but it didn’t need to come to this,” Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of Texas tweeted. “The US must do everything in its power to help our partners & allies to safety & protect our national security.”

The White House tweeted out a picture Saturday of Biden sitting down at Camp David and taking notes during a video conference with his national security team.

And on Sunday, a White House official told Fox News that Biden has “spoken to members of his National Security team on the situation in Afghanistan and will continue to receive updates and be briefed throughout the day.”

Jordan – one of Biden’s harshest critics — said he doesn’t believe the United States has seen something this “crazy” in foreign policy since the Vietnam War, referring to the infamous finale at the Saigon embassy, where Americans were evacuated from a rooftop by helicopter in 1975.

“Let’s hope we can protect American lives. But this would not happen. This would not happen if President Trump was in the White House. We know that we would not be treated the way we are from our adversaries,” Jordan said. “We would not have what took place up in Anchorage, Alaska, a few months ago, where Secretary Blinken was treated the way he was by his Chinese counterpart. That just would not happen when you project strength and confidence from the White House. But unfortunately, we don’t have that today.”

    The entire Biden/Harris Administration is composed of incompetent and stupid individuals.

    This entire war has been a debacle. Your partisan hit job to score political points is just that. Once Bush landed on that aircraft carrier and proclaimed mission over after a quick 18 months, that was it. But his Warhawk puppet masters couldn’t help but institute “mission creep”. So the next 18 years we’re spent there… for what? What was accomplished?
    When Obama took over it was already the second longest war we ever fought. Trump openly bragged that he negotiated with the Taliban and set in motion things that Biden couldn’t undo. This entire 20 year debacle is yet another stain on America. Once again, we haven’t learned from our past.

    I am not sure about quoting Gym Jordan about paying attention to what is going on in the showers is appropriate anything to score a talking point thought.

    I’m with trump, 20 years of water lives and wasted money, Biden is doing what should have been done 18 years ago.

  6. Joe

    Hidenbiden is a total embarrassment, he has caused all of this, by opening that corrupt, lying, pie hole of his, and telling the Taliban every move were going to make. This incompetent, senile,frail,old,sockpuppet,fool, needs to be removed form office for total incompetency. The idiot is going to get Americans and allies slaughtered, because of his stupidity, he needs to go now.

      It was trump that negotiated with the Taliban for our departure date. Well ahead of time.

      I’m not putting this all on trump, it’s been 18 yrs of an absolute debacle. Plenty of blame to go around, including us voters that didn’t insist on sticking to the original mission and allowing this to go on for 20 years. There is no good answer, but to put this all on Biden is disingenuous.

    Hmmm… this is the same Jim Jordan, who supported Trump, who took 1/4 of his entire 4 years off for golfing (at taxpayer expense, besides the fact that his properties were making money off of every trip), and also stood by silent while the team doctor molested dozens (or was it hundreds?) of boys in Jim Jordan’s wrestling program… I think he’s already blown his credibility to attack others on just about any topic.

    Boebert (who is a nutcase Q-Anon conspiracist with a criminal record) and Banks, both of whom have supported Trump’s “Big Lie” are no strangers to dereliction of duty – and both skipped House votes claiming “COVID” while they were off at the CPAC convention. At least Biden is vacationing at a government facility with full communications and access to his staff, and we’re not putting money in his pocket while he’s there.

    And let’s not forget Trump’s “historic” + “peace deal” with the Taliban… How’s that working out for you? Trump, master negotiator that he is, let out some 5000 Taliban prisoners, including many of its leaders. What did he get in return? I’d say he got hornswaggled, i.e. bupkis, i.e. nothing out of the deal.

    What do you expect Biden to do, go to Afghanistan? It was a Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld debacle, made even worse by Trump. If Afghanistan’s army of 700,000 can’t handle 30,000 rebels, then the prudent thing to do is give up and pull out. They’ve been training for 20 years, nothing that Biden does in the next 4-8 years is going to change that.

    If you’re going to criticize the President, at least find some members of Congress who have even just a little credibility. The whole Republican Party, with only a handful of exceptions, is full of cowards deathly afraid of Trump, who enabled his criminal behavior during his term in office, and were and/or continue to support Trump’s traitorous failed coup attempt.

    And while we’re talking about dereliction of duty, this article is almost identical to a story in USA Media Times. Mr. Sheridan is getting lazy…

    While I don’t necessarily think the absolute right thing has been done here-the situation we find ourselves in is mainly due to the incompetence of the Pompeii/Trump foreign policy (that is without getting into the Busch/Cheney incompetence where we lost our focus on Afghanistan and wandered over to Iraq to destabilize that country). As one of your conservative competitors noted in a discussion with a former military person-the US does not negotiate with terrorists, but that is exactly what the trump regime did-without even bothering to include the legitimate government of Afghanistan in those discussions. Disgusting! Bottom line, I believe the the “peace treaty” that trump bragged about should have been renegotiated with Afghan government participation by the Biden administration. However, criticizing Biden for this situation without being critical of Trump/Pompeo is really disingenuous-they are the real folks responsible for this mess….

    Joe should have known better than to follow Trump’s lead. Look at all of Trump’s loyal followers that have been left in the shitter. Cheaters, liars, and felons all. Barrack was the latest to be indicted. Broidy, pleaded guilty, awaiting sentencing. Paul Manafort convicted in 2018 on federal bank and tax fraud charges. Was he guilty? Well, he said he was in court, got 7 and 1/2 years, and got pardoned — sure, looks like he was guilty, guilty, guilty. Now he’s busy trying to get an insurrection started while you guys are scared of the Muslims he works for. He’s a top Trump guy. Bannon got hit with fraud charges before being pardoned. Again, you know you are guilty if you get pardoned…. Stone, convicted, 3 years, pardoned, guilty again I guess. Gates, guilty, got 45-days since he turned on Trump. Flynn, guilty, pardoned, guilty. Cohen guilty, got three years, no pardon since he turned on Trump. Papadopoulos, guilty, 45 days, for lying to FBI. Nadar, guilty, sex crimes. Weisselberg, indicted, case pending, but he’s guilty…

    Many more criminal indictments under Trump, Reagan and Nixon than under Obama, Clinton and Carter. Basically the tally is 142 for the uptight white Republican Conservatives and 3 for the Democrats.

    Joe should have known better than to follow Trump’s plan. I mean the man has a following that overwhelmingly the cause of the current covid Delta surge found predominately in Trump states. That’s what you get for following Trump. A trip to the hospital while he gets special drugs, medical attention and the vaccine. I mean look what following Trump got Desantis and Florida. It’s bad ju ju.

    The old fool probably thinks it’s a great thing for America to be put in danger from radical rag heads

  11. frank stetson

    Rag heads? What rock did you crawl out from under? The last and yugest “radical raghead” attack was on YOUR watch.

    WTF did you expect, to stay there forever? To win? Don’t you think occupying a foreign land makes “ragheads” everywhere hate us? Shouldn’t they?

    What the hell would you have wanted to happen? Tell us. Cuz Trump is not the answer, at least based on Trump scattered results.

    This Taliban takeover was set up under Trump’s watch. Trump set the deal with the Taliban, made the agreement with the Taliban. What makes you think this would have gone any different under Trump’s watch? Probably work the same way he solved North Korea; they are building and testing nukes as if he never struck a deal with his bestest new little friend, another dictator with a bad haircut. Or the way he got Iran to restart their nuclear program when they were tearing it down before he reneged on America’s word, not for cause, but just because. His foreign policy set American back 20 years with the only good thing being the Israeli/Arab treaties. He allowed his Turkish best buddy with bad hair and a desire to kill his adversaries, to freely attack the Kurds, no pushback. Iran now has enough nuclear material to build bombs, they had none before Trump. The Bagdad embassy was bombed frequently under Trump’s watch.

    What did you expect to happen in this under Trump?

      Hah! I think you triggered Frank there Tyree.

        He’s probably out of meds. Should I have said sand ni&&ers or camel jockeys?

    President Trump’s Disgraceful Peace Deal with the Taliban

    Time, MARCH 3, 2020


    If you read the peace agreement itself, you’ll note immediately that it gives the Taliban a series of concrete, measurable gifts. First, there’s an immediate allied withdrawal – down to 8,600 American troops (and proportionate numbers of allied troops) within 135 days. The remainder of American and allied forces will leave within 14 months.

    At the same time, the United States will immediately and substantially reinforce the Taliban by seeking the release of 5,000 Taliban prisoners by March 20. Even worse, the United States further agreed to a goal of “releasing all remaining prisoners over the course of the subsequent three months.” It will do this at the same time that it commits to the “goal” of removing sanctions from members of the Taliban that include travel bans, asset freezes, and an arms embargo.

    The combination of the planned American retreat and the planned prisoner release would represent a substantial change in the balance of forces in Afghanistan. This would come without any agreement by the Taliban to cease hostilities against our allies.

    At this point, the deal looks worse than a simple withdrawal. America can leave all on its own without also agreeing to seek the release of Taliban prisoners. It can leave all on its own without promising to ease sanctions. So why agree to the additional concessions?

    America is making these concrete concessions in exchange for unenforceable promises from an untrustworthy enemy. The Taliban promise that they will not allow its members or members of al-Qaeda to use Afghan soil to threaten American national security. The promise to “send a clear message” that those who threaten the United States “have no place in Afghanistan.” Yet the agreement released to the public provides no verification or enforcement provisions for these assurances, and once America is out of Afghanistan, our ability to enforce those promises absent a new, substantial military buildup will be limited to nonexistent.

      Ben you are using the oldest, lamest tactic in the political liars handbook. Blame the previous administration for all the travesties of the present one. It has never been persuasive, and it certainly is not now.

      And nobody with any sense gives a damn what David French thinks.

        What part isn’t accurate ?
