Joe Biden is completely failing to do his job and rescue Americans from Afghanistan following his massive gift to the Taliban. Recently, against all logic and reason, Biden pulled our troops from the country, paving the way for the terrorist group to take over Afghanistan. The Biden administration has rescued some people, but very few of them have actually been Americans. To top it off, the Taliban are blocking roads to the airport and have, according to numerous reports, been beating Americans in the streets. Until recently, Biden refused to send our troops on rescue missions like the U.K. and Germany have been doing. But thanks to shame, Biden is selectively rescuing Americans from the area surrounding the airport. Unfortunately, this is the Taliban we’re dealing with, and Kabul terrorists just suicide bombed an area where American civilians are meeting to be rescued.

Two explosions rocked the area near the Baron Hotel in Kabul, which the U.S. and the United Kingdom are using as a meeting place for civilians who have been stranded. So far, it is unknown how many have been hurt and killed, but we do know that terrorists are to blame.

The Fremont Tribune reports:

 A U.S. official says several Marines were killed and a number of other American military were wounded Thursday in an attack on Kabul’s airport.

U.S. officials have said that information is still coming in and they are trying to determine exact numbers of casualties.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing military operations.

The Pentagon would not say what troops were involved but acknowledged that “a number of U.S. service members were killed.”

Sources say the suicide bombings were carried out by ISIS. The Taliban, of course, fake-condemned the attack on Americans, but we knew in advance that one was imminent:

Western officials had warned of a major attack, urging people to leave the airport, but that advice went largely unheeded by Afghans desperate to escape the country in the last few days of an American-led evacuation before the U.S. officially ends its 20-year presence on Aug. 31.

These casualties rest squarely on Joe Biden’s shoulders. He has botched Afghanistan at every level — and every move he makes just makes things worse.

Early reports said the number of aircraft given to the Taliban by Joe Biden when he handed them the country at under 10. But now we know that the air force Biden gave the Taliban is much bigger than originally reported. Now we know that the Taliban now have control of more than 200 aircraft — and they were largely purchased with your hard-earned tax dollars.

The Gateway Pundit reports that there were over 200 aircraft left behind in Afghanistan, making the Taliban #26 when tanked against other countries in the number of military aircraft. This includes over 100 helicopters, 20 light attack planes, 18 recon planes, 60 transport aircraft, and more.

“The helicopter fleet there is large – more than 100 Mi-17 helicopters of various types,” says Alexander Mikheev, the head of the Russian state exporter Rosoboronexporter. “Of course, this fleet requires repair, maintenance and spare parts supply.”

In addition, the Taliban now has possession of as many of 105 ScanEagle drones, nearly 5,000 Humvees, over 20,000 grenades, 1,400 grenade launchers, and other weapons. The exact number of gifts Biden gave the terrorist organization is unknown. But the numbers keep growing and growing — and we know that the Taliban intends to use them on us.

It’s unclear why Biden did not order the destruction of our equipment when he hastily pulled us out of Afghanistan. But now he has given a terrorist organization everything they need to wreak havoc: a country, about a dozen military bases, enough aircraft to form one of the 26 most powerful air forces in the world, enough weapons to supply an army, and ground vehicles to support them.

Dark days are ahead. We must vote Biden out in 2024, but also remember to show up in 2022 and retake control of Congress. America is in trouble if we don’t. Watch the Taliban showing off their U.S.-funded weapons below:

It’s common knowledge that Americans are not just stranded in Afghanistan, but that the Taliban have been beating them in the streets. But according to Biden Administration Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki, that’s not a problem — because Psaki denies Americans are “stranded” in Afghanistan at all in some weird attempt to defy reality.

Asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy whether the White House’s official stance is that there are no Americans stranded in Kabul, a fiery Psaki answered:

“I’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan, when I – when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home,” Psaki said. “We are going to bring them home. And I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand.”

The problem is that everyone, even the New York Times, has reported this. It’s not like we don’t know what’s going on over there. Rather than correct the record, a White House official emailed Fox News to back Psaki up: “As the president and his team have made clear, the circumstances in Afghanistan are heartbreaking and we are bringing the Americans who want to come home, home.”

Despite Biden and friends’ claims to the contrary, a mother and government worker told Fox that she and many others are indeed stranded. “We are stranded at home. We can’t get to the airport,” she said in a “Fox and Friends First” interview Tuesday. “When we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives.”

After pressure mounted, Biden eventually began rescue operations to rescue this woman and others like her — but such missions are cherry-picked by four-star generals and above — likely to avoid a “Black Hawk Down” scenario Biden fears will damage his reputation.

Remember that popular movie from the early 2,000s where two helicopters are downed during a rescue mission in Somalia and solders are forced to struggle to survive? Great film, right? It was such a good movie that even Joe Biden, with his clear and present cognitive malfunctions, remembers it. In fact, he remembers it so well that Biden refused to rescue trapped Americans because of this 2002 movie. Though the movie was based on a true story, Biden worried not about the lives of our soldiers (18 died in the real-life Black Hawk Down tragedy), but that he might look bad.

Thousands and thousands of Americans — a number the Biden Administration refuses to disclose — are still trapped in Afghanistan, and not just in the Kabul airport where Biden is failing to evacuate them. The Taliban are blocking roads to the airport and, according to numerous verified reports, beating Americans in the streets. But Biden refused to send our soldiers out into those streets to rescue said Americans. All because he watched that classic movie and he was afraid that a similar situation might develop. Because if that happened, it might make him look bad (as opposed to how good giving a terrorist group an entire country, complete with an air force, we guess). The Daily Mail reports:

In a video conference last week, the president also negatively commented on how quickly the Afghan government fell apart and told commanders he wanted them to be focused on beefing up security at the airport.

During the call, the president alluded to the ‘Black Hawk Down’ tragedy of the Somali Civil War, which saw 18 US personnel killed.

In 1993, US forces tried to capture key allies of Somali general Mohamed Farrah Aidid. Adid had overthrown President Mohamed Siad Barre’s socialist government.

During the raid, 18 Americans and two United Nations soldiers were killed after two Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters were shot down by RPGs.

Ultimately, after facing pressure for his refusal to rescue Americans in trouble, Biden authorized rescue mission. But his petty refusal to do anything to help when it mattered most is something that should be remembered and investigated. We deserve to know how many Americans were hurt or killed as a result of Biden’s desire to protect his ego.

It’s obvious that the media and the elites wanted Joe Biden to become President. But they are joined by a very notable historic figure — the man who was behind the most horrific event ever to happen on American soil, the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As it turns out, Osama Bin Laden wanted Biden to become President and even said not to kill him.

In a letter to a subordinate, Biden issued orders not to kill Joe Biden, even if the opportunity arose. According to the letter, Bin Laden believed the current occupant of the Oval Office to be completely incompetent and said that a Biden presidency would likely “lead the U.S. into a crisis.” The Daily Mail reports:

Bin Laden – then-leader of al Qaeda, and the man that America went to Afghanistan to kill – penned the 48-page missive in May 2010 to an aide identified as ‘Brother Shaykh Mahmud’, real name Atiyah Abd al-Rahman.

In it, he discusses the need to direct resources away from terror attacks in other Muslim countries and instead focus on direct attacks against the US.

On page 36, he outlines his desire to form two hit squads – one in Pakistan and another in Afghanistan – whose job it will be to plot attacks against then-US President Barack Obama and ex-CIA director David Petraeus, should they visit either country.

“Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there,” Bin Laden says in the letter. “Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the US into a crisis.”

So the plan was to kill Obama and install Biden as President to throw the U.S. into turmoil. He also planned to kill General Petraeus, who he described as the “man of the hour in this last year of the war.”” According to Bin Laden, “killing him would alter the war’s path.”

Bin Laden was a lot of horrible things, but he was absolutely right. Not only did Biden start off his presidential term by creating a crisis at the border, but he ignored intelligence that Afghanistan was vulnerable to Taliban takeover and announced that such an event was “highly unlikely.” Now, the U.S. is in crisis — just like Bin Laden wanted.

It’s up to us to fix the problem with our votes — not just in 2024, but in 2022 when we have the chance to take control of Congress and mitigate the continual harm being done by Joe Biden.

We’ve watched Joe Biden allow the Taliban to occupy Afghanistan, wreaking terror on the country’s citizens, as well as on the tens of thousands of Americans who were and are still trapped there. Biden’s Afghanistan mishap is largely viewed by the world as one of the most seriously policy blunders in American history. So why is it any surprise that he and his fellow Democrats are just as inept when handling domestic terrorism? Portland Antifa militants now occupy a waterfront “Autonomous Zone,” one of many such camps that the domestic terrorist organization has formed in leftist-run cities for years.

The new camp is called, probably accurately, the SSPAZ. Leftist terrorists originally held a protest against a patriotic celebration at the location. And when there wasn’t much of a police presence to respond to it, they got other ideas. HumanEvents reports:

Antifa insurgents violently disrupted a patriotic-themed event in Portland Sunday, seeking violence and a clash with the opposing group. 

Hundreds of black bloc Antifa militants arrived at Portland’s Waterfront Park to counter-protest the “Summer of Love: Patriots Spreading Love not Hate” event which was scheduled to begin at 2, per the Post Millennial. 

In efforts to escape possible violence, the group moved the event to a different location. 

Many Antifa came armed, hoping for violence:

Eventually, Antifa put up fencing and occupied the zone. They have guns. They have explosives. This is not only a terrorist attack — but one on Americans soil.

The Antifa mob attacked members of the media and all the while, police stayed out of the way. The Portland Police offered nothing but excuses. “There were no immediate arrests, but detectives are reviewing evidence to determine whether charges can be brought for any criminal activity,” Portland Police said in a statement,” adding:

“As stated before today’s events, officers were not deployed to stand in between individuals intent on confronting one another. But that does not mean the crimes committed will not be addressed. Arrests do not always happen in the moment. As in past such events, we are conducting follow-up investigations, gathering evidence, and will make arrests when probable cause exists that specific persons committed crimes. Just because arrests are not made at the scene, when tensions are high, does not mean that people are not being charged with crimes later.” 

We won’t hold our breath on charges. It’s not like they peacefully trespassed at a government building or anything. Democrats are perfectly fine with this brand of domestic terrorism, the same way they are perfectly happy to allow Afghanistan to be occupied on a larger scale by the Taliban. It’s time for a change in leadership — not just in the Oval Office, but in every single city. If there’s one thing recent years have taught us it’s that electing the right Governor is just as important as the right President.

America hates Joe Biden. This might seem like a guess based on what seems to be the general sentiment toward the current occupant of the White House. Republicans hate him. Independents hate him. Even Democrats have been turning on him ever since he handed the country of Afghanistan to the Taliban. But there’s data to support it. According to a recent poll, most of the U.S. has an “unfavorable” view of Joe Biden’s job performance.

Joe Biden has been a complete failure as a President. He kicked things off by making a series of terrible decisions at the border, creating the worst crisis we have seen in the nation’s history. Illegals have been flooding across the border. Cartels have expanded operations and are working in broad daylight. Human and drug trafficking is up. And people who cross the border are spreading COVID to every community they encounter. Many have wondered what Biden could do that is worse than how he has handled the border crisis he created. Then came Afghanistan.

Biden recently withdrew troops from Afghanistan, leaving the country ripe for the picking for the Taliban, whose presence quickly expanded. Then they took control, including of 11 U.S. bases. They have an air force now. Almost 300 U.S. taxpayer-funded Humvees. Munitions. Weapons. And while Biden promised to rescue Americans from Afghanistan, he has so far failed that mission. In fact, most of the people rescued have not been Americans and the Taliban are blocking roads to the Kabul airport. Instead, Americans are being beaten by Terrorists while the Biden administration is paralyzed by fear and indecision.

A CIVIQS  poll reveals that Americans have noticed how badly Joe Biden is running the country. In fact, only 12 states have a favorable view of Biden.

This list of states that hate Biden includes many that he “won” in 2020, including the hotly-contested Georgia and Arizona. If the election happened today, it’s likely that whoever runs against Biden would win. If President Trump wants a rematch in 2024, he probably will wipe the floor with this failure of a President.

Ever since Joe Biden handed Afghanistan to the Taliban, things have been a mess. The terrorist group took control of 11 military bases, acquired an air force, is riding around the country in U.S. taxpayer-funded Humvees beating and killing dissenters and enforcing their control with U.S.-bought weapons. People are waiting to be rescued in Kabul as the Taliban block roads and beat U.S. citizens. Rescues are happening, but at a much slower pace than expected. And though Joe Biden has promised to get Americans home, it isn’t exactly happening. Over 17,000 were rescued from Afghanistan this week. Guess how many were Americans?

You might assume that U.S. citizens would be top priority, but you’d be wrong. Taliban are blocking routes to airports where rescue operations are being conducted and assaulting Americans — despite promises to play nice — but our soldiers aren’t even allowed to leave the airport perimeter to help them. In fact, only 14 percent (2,500) of those who have been evacuated from Afghanistan have been Americans. And while French and British troops are conducting rescue operations through Kabul, the United States is sitting on its hands and refusing to help the up to 20,000 Americans still in Afghanistan.

Major General Hank Taylor says that the United States has only rescued 2,500 Americans — that’s fewer than the 5,200 troops we have on the ground at the Kabul airport. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports:

Army Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor, Joint Staff deputy director for regional operations, told Pentagon reporters on Saturday that of the 17,000 people evacuated since Aug. 15, just 2,500 have been Americans. U.S. officials have estimated there are as many as 15,000 Americans in Afghanistan, but acknowledge they don’t have solid numbers.

The evacuations have been hampered by screening and logistical strains at waystations such as al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar, which hit maximum capacity. U.S. officials said they have limited numbers of military and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol screeners at the transit points, and they are struggling to work through glitches in the vetting systems.

Kirby refuses to say what security problems are preventing us from doing what other countries are doing for their citizens. Asked about Americans being brutally beaten by the Taliban, Kirby shrugged the problem off.

“We’ve actually been talking about this for several days here, here at this particular podium,” Kirby says, adding that “it wasn’t just Americans that he talked about that have been harassed and in some cases beaten,” and that “We don’t believe it is a very large number.” He claims that “by and large, most Americans who who have their credentials with them are being allowed through the Taliban checkpoints and into the gate and onto the airfield.”

“Now, I have to caveat it and I’ll do it again,” Kirby adds. “We are aware of sporadic cases… where they aren’t being allowed, where there is some harassment going on and yes, some physical violence has occurred.”

Don’t worry though. Kirby claims that U.S. commanders have made it “clear to Taliban commanders” that violence is “unacceptable.” The problem is that they aren’t listening and Biden is too weak-willed to do anything about it. He can’t even get our citizens out of the country.

Now that his administration has handed the Taliban full control of Afghanistan, reports are surfacing that Americans are being brutally beaten as Joe Biden fails to rescue them from Afghanistan. Thanks to Biden, the Taliban has acquired 11 U.S. bases, complete with 6 aircraft, 174 Humvees, 10,0-00 high-explosive rockets, and more. Since Biden handed them a country, the Taliban has reportedly been going door to door, searching homes and beating dissenters. While Americans have been promised safe passage out of the country, we all know that terrorists lie.

Recently, it was reported that of the 2,000 people (well below the capacity the Pentagon says it has the capacity to rescue daily) evacuated from Afghanistan, fewer than 300 were Americans. The sad reality is that thousands and thousands of our citizens are still trapped within the country’s borders as Taliban soldiers block roads to airports where evacuations are taking place. And what’s life like for Americans who are still there? Newsy reporter Sasha Ingber says they are not great.

“A source tells me, ‘Situation [in Afghanistan] is rapidly deteriorating… We’ve had Americans get beaten throughout the night,'” Ingber writes on Twitter. “One of them, an American woman, was beaten ‘twice’ even though she was carrying a U.S. passport.”

“Yesterday @PentagonPresSec said Americans are not being impeded as they travel to the Kabul airport, no Americans harmed. The Taliban agreed to let them evacuate,” she adds. But this is a lie. “What I am hearing suggests otherwise. Americans have been injured and stopped from boarding planes.”

“I’m also told Taliban is targeting Afghans US worked with, ‘going door to door and executing anyone that has worked with the US,'” she adds. “That ‘Taliban are searching the cars at checkpoints to find out something related to the foreign countries specially United States.'” This information comes from multiple sources.

Joe Biden will be remembered for two things: his colossal failure with regard to Afghanistan and his betrayal of Americans and the world.

As many as 15,000 Americans remain trapped in the Taliban-controlled country of Afghanistan. While Joe Biden and the Democrats assure us that they are doing their best to get our citizens out of the country, those efforts have not exactly materialized. Of the 2,000 people evacuated from Afghanistan in the past 24 hours, less than 300 were Americans.

“What proportion of the 2,000 are American citizens…what proportion are women?” a reporter asked Pentagon spokesman John Kirby on Thursday. Kirby replied that he doesn’t have any statistics on gender even though women should be top priority in an Islamist nation that treats women like garbage. But he says that out of 2,000 who have been rescued, “nearly 300” have been Americans.

Asked how many Americans are still in Afghanistan, Kirby replied that he “doesn’t know.” The Daily Mail reports that Biden is well behind schedule on removing people from the country:

A dozen US Air Force C-17 cargo jets removed 2,000 people from the region overnight – an average of just 160 people per flight, despite the planes being able to carry 600 people – six fewer aircraft than in the previous 24 hours. Since August 14, the US has only removed 7,000 people in total from the region. 

They’d promised to lift between 5,000 and 9,000 out per day and there are at least 50,000 waiting to be taken to safety but people are not being processed quickly enough because of manic crowds at the airport’s gates and on the roads, which are being blocked by the Taliban.  

Despite reports out of Kabul that the Taliban is blocking entrance and forcing the US military into negotiations over who can get into the airport, Kirby said Thursday that there have been ‘no hostile interactions’ between the insurgents and Americans trying to get to Hamid Karzai International Airport.

“And I think as you also know, not every American citizen in another country – there’s no obligation that they register their presence and that you can have a perfectly accurate count,” Kirby says.

Currently, about 50,000 people are awaiting rescue. But the Taliban is blocking roads to the airports and impeding the removal of Americans from the country despite promises to help Westerners leave. Even ABC journalists with paperwork proving their identities have been blocked from leaving.

Thanks, Biden. You’re entirely to blame for this.
