Biden’s BIG LIES about Afghanistan

Biden’s BIG LIES about Afghanistan

One of the tragic realities about President Biden’s ill-conceived plan to end the war in Afghanistan is that he keeps making promises he has no desire or ability to keep – and I believe he knows it.  That means he is lying.

He promised that ALL Americans and Afghan special visa holders would be evacuated from the country before American forces would depart.  He even suggested that he would advance the August 31 deadline if needed.  Anyone with an IQ higher than a hockey score knew that Biden’s banter was bullsh*t.

And now we have the proof that Biden’s narratives were all lies.  In a conversation with then Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Biden said that he was aware that the government would fall after the military departed – but that was not what he wanted to tell the American people.

In the phone conversation, Biden said (highlight added), “I need not tell you, the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban.  And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

In other words, when Biden was telling the American people that the government in Kabul had the strength and resources to fight the Taliban, with malice aforethought, Biden was handing Afghanistan to the Taliban.

In that same call, Biden promised to continue providing air support for the national military.  In fact, such air support was terminated – and some observers cite that as the reason the Afghan forces collapsed.  They knew that without the United States air power, the situation was hopeless.  

Biden and his administration have been lying about virtually every aspect of the withdrawal of American forces.

In terms of Americans flown out, the numbers are confusing.  Initially, the administration believed that there were between 20,000 and 30,000 Americans in Afghanistan.  But as the deadline drew near, Biden bragged about getting 5500 American on departing C-10s – with only 100 to 200 hundred remaining in harm’s way.  Untrue.

Biden also blames those left behind for their own situation.  According to Biden, they had every opportunity to come to the Hamid Karzai Airport.  He said those remaining in Afghanistan may want to remain. Both claims are lies.  

Veterans’ groups, media and various Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are working around the clock to get the stranded Americans and Afghans out of the country.  CNN’s Chris Cuomo had a tearful American live on the phone pleading for help – and she was hiding with 37 others – Americans and Afghans.  These are all anecdotal cases, but they are coming to the surface in droves.  

Literally thousands of Americans are working to get tens of thousands of those left behind out of the country.  One organization estimates that there are literally millions of Afghans who want to leave the country. Obviously, not all of those are eligible, but it gives some sense of the scope of the problem – far greater than Biden’s self-serving mendacious narratives.

It is a pity that the Washington Post decided to end the awarding of Pinocchios for political prevarication.  It is too bad that CNN’s “Reality Check,” with john Avlon as the stand-in prosecutor, never focuses on Biden’s longstanding propensity to lie.

Fortunately, Biden is a bad liar in that his fibs – big and small – are discernible by anyone following the news – except for the hyper-partisan Democrats.  But even for Biden, his explanations regarding Afghanistan are based on humongous whoppers.

So, there ‘tis.

    Larry, You know what Biden didn’t lie about? Getting our troops out, something that should have been done after Bush declared victory 18 years ago.

      What is cricket again mean? Is that some type of libturd code? Yes, American people are being hunted down in Afghanistan because of YOUR stupid president doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing. Oh by the way. We’ve talked guns before. A report is out that more young people and minorities are rejecting gun control. Just saying. I didn’t write the article and it wasn’t put out originally by conservative news organizations So tomorrow stand and show your support for the taliban.

      Frank … we know that some families have been slaughtered since the Taliban began their march to Kabul. The official reports are in the dozens at this point … possibly approaching 100. It is believed that this is only a fraction because the most brutal and gruesome activities are taking place in the regions beyond Kabul — where this is not western news coverage. If you are suggesting that the Taliban are not taking revenge on Americans and American supporters and their families, you are just wrong .. wrong … wrong. You are falling for the Taliban’s PR campaign in Kabul. If you think the Taliban and other terrorist groups are turning into good citizens, you are a fool. They still see America as their primary mortal enemy in the west.

    The media and the Dems have been covering Biden for years by labeling his lies as “gaffes”. They are not gaffes, they are lies.

    Name one gaffe that is a lie. Uh huh… Are his stutters lies too?

    And you like liars, your guy is the biggest. Either that or the pussy grabber did not pretty bad nasties. Here’s over 30,000 of them delivered over his four years on this golden throne, documented, sourced, and supplied: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/01/24/trumps-false-or-misleading-claims-total-30573-over-four-years/

    Probably find as many gaffers = lies as Dan finds slaughtered Americans. You guys can really toss the shi……. but you can’t make it stick.

    I believe Biden did may have lied on Afghanistan; he certainly applied heavy spin to the point of a lie, but in the scheme of things pales by comparison. All Presidents do upon occasion, but the Liar In Chief, for all time, the record holder, is Donald J. Trump. And yet, hardly a walk back, never an apology. No one have ever seen anything like it in our history.

    The best part is all the people who don’t think he lies. Same people probably planning September Florida vacation too. Or a historical trip down to olde San Antone.

      Hang in there Frank. I started a commentary dealing with Biden’s lies. I am drawing the list mostly from the Washington Post and Politico fact checking. It will take a few days because the list is a LOT longer than even I imagined. I doubt it would match Trump, but Biden is a prodigious liar — more than what we have come to expect from politicians. I try to select the most egregious and then explain the truth according to the fact checkers. That means I can only deal with a very small percentage of them in one commentary. Stay tuned. I also deal with Trump and Dale’s “most notable lies.” Didn’t that strike you as rather petty and inconsequential. That has always been my criticism of Trump. He lies about small stuff. I know you will point to what has become known as the BIG LIE … but after that is mostly nothing more than bragging and bs.

    It is about time that the AMERICAN PEOPLE demand that Biden resign IMMEDIATELY, he is a perpetual liar. BUT some of his lying is not all his fault, some is because he is losing his mind, some is because of his handlers tell him exactly what to say and when. You can see this happening every time the the press lady answers questions from the media, she is also a liar, because she is doing so to keep her job.

    GOD BLESS AMERIC A, ONE DIVIDED NATION UNDER GOD.

      I am currently preparing a commentary on the Biden history of lies — much of which is drawn from left-wing media reports like the Washington Post. That publication referred to Biden as a serial liar. But of course, the media does not report his lies repeatedly like they reported on Trump.If we used the same standard as the Washington Post, I think Honest Abe my lose his nickname…lol

    Dan, once again the only sound we hear when we ask you to show support for your baseless claims is crickets chirping. What Americans have been hunted down? The 200 just allowed to leave by the Taliban?

    And why would I support the Taliban? Seems that you dream of the Taliban slaughtering Americans so you can prove your lie. Then you could be right, prove Biden bad, all the things you’re been telling us.

    And, by the way, what’s guns gots to do with it? Absolutely nothing. It’s just Dan.

      I was pointing out that more younger people are rejecting gun control. I didn’t write the report. Don’t shoot the messenger No pun intended. More people are being awakened. I knew that the commiecrats would overplay their hands and piss people off. And lots of liberals are rethinking the defund the police ideas. The natural survival instinct is kicking in. I just like to remind people that the 2nd amendment becoming more about survival We aren’t living in a movie script where all’s well that ends well.

    Larry-you talk about Biden’s lies, but somehow the lies of one Larry Horowitz are never addressed. Biden’s “Ill conceived plan to end the war in Afghanistan”. While I would not have handled it the way Biden did-the wheels were well in motion when he entered the WH. Troops had been reduced to just 2500 when he entered office. The disaster was negotiated when his predecessor was in office. You ignore all that. Why? We know, but if you wanted to show any degree of credibility you would assess blame where blame is due. Instead it is the same old one-sided Larry trying to sound important but failing….

    Yet another Afghanistan/Biden hit-piece, number 7 I believe. When are you blockheads going to acknowledge that Trump surrendered to the Taliban? That’s the (other) Big Lie that you keep perpetuating.

    I feel sorry for any Americans left in Afghanistan, and by your own admission the reports are anecdotal cases, but you expand that into “droves” while citing only one case. The 20,000-30,000 estimate was the number of Afghans that had supported the US government that we wanted to evacuate.

    And again, Trump surrendered and anounced the pullout of US troops back in March of 2020. And Biden announced his decision to leave Afghanistan as a campaign promise, but also several months before his August 31st deadline. Afghans being evacuated went from ZERO in the last two years to over 100,000 in a few weeks. Any US citizens had a year and a half to leave – what were they waiting for, an engraved invitation?

    How long are you going to beat this dead horse? By the way, a Polish buddy of mine tells me that, in Polish, that’s a euphemism for masturbation… this is old news, and yet you’re still at it.

    Larry, uh…..a liberal Slavic cares :>) And Slavs and Poles don’t even get along, but here, Larry, in America, we believe all people are created equal, equal rights is the law of the law, and that you, you are a racist.

    The other Larry, you said: ” I know you will point to what has become known as the BIG LIE … but after that is mostly nothing more than bragging and bs. Dude, bring it on. And if it’s so big, or you want to match WAPO’s repetition or focus on the small lies, just post a link to your massive Biden lie database. That’s ez enough.

    Cuz you up against over 30,000 lies, in a span of just four years (are you using the same clock, Larry? Of course not….), 503 lies in just one day, peaking around October of 2020, documented, and categorized, with all repetitions documented as well. Can’t wait for this one Larry. The most amazing part is that you think you will come close….. Just amazing how you continue to breathe deep, hold your nose, and pretend this man does not stink to high heaven. Politically, personally, and professionally, he’s a real stinker. And now we are going all the way back to the beginning, to 2016, and those mysterious communications between Trump servers and the Russian Alfa Bank, which are still resurfacing to this day, just the start of his long Presidency full of thousands of lies each month, hundreds per day, tens of thousands per year, over and over.
