On Tuesday, former President Trump released a powerful new video message about the complete disaster in Afghanistan that comes courtesy of the Biden administration.

The title could not be more fitting: “Surrenderer-in-Chief”

The drama in this video is no exaggeration. As Dan Bongino reported Tuesday, the information we’re receiving out of Afghanistan is getting even worse. In ten days, Kabul has fallen into chaos. Our remaining troops have already started withdrawing, I assume to make 100 percent sure we have enough time to get out before the Taliban’s deadline of August 31. After all, the Taliban are calling the shots now, and we wouldn’t dare go against their orders, would we? Biden confirmed on Tuesday that we will not be staying past that date. Golly gee, the Taliban told us they won’t let us, so...hey, what are ya gonna do?

The Taliban also announced they won't let any more Afghan nationals go to the airport. One might say that ship has sailed. It could be a bloodbath for our friends left behind.

“They [the Americans] have the opportunity, they have all the resources, they can take all the people that belong to them but we are not going to allow Afghans to leave and we will not extend the deadline,” said a Taliban spokesman. They act as though they hold all the cards, because, with Biden nominally in charge of our side, they actually do.

As for U.S. citizens, they don’t know what to do now. The Embassy issued a “last alert” for them to leave right then or be on their own, but just 30 minutes later, they recalled it, essentially saying, “Never mind!” Just use your own judgment, they said.

As we've said, when Psaki admonished Peter Doocy as “irresponsible” for saying Americans were “stranded,” she was lying. Communications from panicked Americans say they absolutely ARE STRANDED. “Our lives are in extreme danger,” said one tearful American mom in a phone message. “We get more of the news to stay put than to be told that you are gonna be evacuated. This is not comforting at all. We don’t know if we’re gonna make it out.”

Obviously, Americans and our friends in Afghanistan made the mistake of awaiting instructions and trusting the U.S.military to evacuate them safely when it was time to go. They know better now.

The Taliban have surrounded the airport and control all comings and goings. As Sean Hannity put it Tuesday night, “Biden, he just signed the death certificates of every Afghan that, in fact, has helped the U.S. in the last 20 years…” Considering that the Taliban were able to retrieve computer data from the abandoned U.S. Embassy on the identities of all the Afghans who helped us, that is no exaggeration. Those friends of ours, and their families, remaining in the country will likely be tracked down and murdered.

Biden gave a scripted press conference Monday, bizarrely focusing mostly on vaccines and infrastructure. Later, White House press secretary Jen Psaki cheerfully praised the evacuation in Kabul as “the largest airlift in U.S. history” and said she wouldn’t characterize it “as anything but a success.” It was surreal. Psaki sported such a happy smile, it seemed at times she might burst into inappropriate laughter, just as Vice President Harris so often does. Perhaps laughter is contagious around the White House.

(It occurs to me that if masking-up wouldn’t stop the spread of inappropriate laughter, it would at least hide the maddeningly inappropriate smiles.)

Murders (at least 20 are known to have been killed), beatings, gassings, stabbings (including of children), and extortion --- this is what our “success” looks like, so far.

POLITICO national security reporter Alex Ward obtained a leaked report from the State Department saying that only 4,407 American citizens had been flown out since the evacuation began on August 14. This number is dwarfed by the “low-end” estimate of 10-15,000 Americans, and possibly many thousands more, who have actually been living there.

The number given by the White House yesterday was 21,600 people flown out from Monday to Tuesday. If that sounds impressive, keep in mind that this is not the number of American citizens but the total number of evacuees, period. We might never know WHO those people are who made it onto the planes, perhaps instead of Americans, their interpreters and other Afghan helpers. At this writing, officials still refuse to give an accounting of American citizens.

But on Monday, reporters received assurance from Jake Sullivan, Biden’s national security adviser, that “we are actually overperforming in terms of evacuation numbers.”

Even President Obama’s former ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, said on FACE THE NATION Sunday that Biden’s actions in that country have emboldened violent Islamists and created “a global crisis.” Specifically, he’s concerned about what the narrative of the Taliban defeating the “Great Satan” is going to do to rile up radicals in Pakistan, which is a nuclear power with 220 million people. Watch him here.

“What’s happening in Afghanistan won’t stay in Afghanistan,” he said. “It will be felt around the world.”

The NEW YORK POST ran a scathing (but mercifully brief) editorial on August 21, saying this chaotic withdrawal shows a “disengaged, befuddled President.”

Since their editorial appeared, conditions have deteriorated so much that even many on the left have joined in that opinion. And this still isn’t as bad as it’s going to get.

Of course, Biden has tried to shift blame to former President Trump, but this is all on him. In case you missed Margot Cleveland’s excellent piece on the 16th, I’ll link to that here.

Cleveland points out a number of very effective Trump policies that Biden simply trashed once he got into office. Everything regarding Afghanistan was ultimately his call. Even if it’s in our country’s best interest to withdraw, the horribly failed execution of the withdrawal is his fault. Shame on him for trying to weasel out and blame others.

Watching President Biden and his team, the question more and more are asking is this: If these people were to deliberately set out to ruin America’s place in the world, to destroy America domestically and internationally, from within and without, what would they do differently? What would they NEED to do differently? I know, I can’t think of anything, either.

    No Impeachment for Biden, BUT ARRESTED FOR MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE, HE PREMEDITATED THE MURDERS TO HAPPEN WHEN HE CANCELED THE POLICY THAT WOULD HAVE PROTECTED THEM, AND HIRED HIT MEN, called the Taliban, TO COMMIT FIRST DEGREE MURDER AGAINST AMERICANS AND AMERICAN ALLIES! What else could it be called? He gave money to the Taliban, in the way of equipment from the military for the real TERRORIST GROUP, THE TALIBAN, to use IT to kill 13 American soldiers and American allies, by bombing the airport where the Americans and Afghans who helped Americans, were TOLD TO GO.
    Biden had Means, Motive, and Opportunity. 1st Degree Murder! If lawyers claim he is 'unfit to face trial', then he is unfit to be President of the United States of America. PERIOD!!!

    Since there have been no satisfactory answers as to why there is such difficulty getting Americans out of Kabul (in addition to the whole of Afghanistan) and why Biden seems dumb-struck and why the military acts like totally inefficient and rather cranky inexperienced Army privates, it is time to consider that the administrations reaction - at White House, State and Pentagon - has been ruled and directed by the Chinese government. It is so apparent that there is every reason for China to totally control this president and to suspect that Biden over his years as vice president while he and his son were doing deals with the Chinese for significant amounts of money is now totally in their grip. It is a worst nightmare come true. To stack up all the Chinese influences that have been brought to light in our country - university control, scientist infiltrating our scientific community, Biden's unwillingness to call them out - and I'm sure many dozen more examples are available to those who specialize in foreign affairs - is enough fodder to really wonder the extent of China's power over our administration and deep state. Just listen to Mike Pompeo and read between his lines his true meaning and it can be understood that he and his aides in the former State Dept understand the depth of China's involvement. Too bad - at this point - that no one has the courage to come out and make this allegation about Biden being totally in bed with China and presenting the facts. Perhaps after China tries to take Taiwan those in the know will find the courage to speak up. We need statesmen like the Colonel who recently spoke truth - had been relieved of his command - and will now leave the military sacrificing his retirement in the future. This man has courage - almost to a fault - and these times demand that steps like his be taken to save our republic.

    The democrats had such a great success in the last election of 2020 by restricting access to polling places and encouraging, forcing, voting by mail and are now trying to set the stage to repeat their successful venture by rigging a national "pandemic" which will again require voting by mail. They, the democrats, are doing just that in California's recall. All voting is done by mail, no voting centers allowed. Lets see how this will impact the election in California

    Disturbingly it's as if Orwell's novel Animal Farm was based on American current events.

    Mike, good morning and thank you for your daily newsletters. I’m a wife, mother, grandma and registered nurse. My husband and I share your viewpoints. I’ve lost friends over my beliefs, including freedom to choose what I put in my body. I respond to posts with facts, not opinion and it saddens me to see people I thought I knew turn radical in their beliefs thanks to msm. I still believe good wins over evil and my faith in God. Thank you again sir and God bless America!

    I want our Republican Representatives to stand up united and demand answers. I want to see them do this outside the State House where we can see that they truly are representing us that believe in the Constitution , believe there in the justice system it represents. I am tired of the Republican Party "do nothing" rhetoric. They are becoming as much "the problem" for not standing up to the far left socialist.
    I want those with a voice, to call out these Republicans ( by name) and shame them for the way they are not leading.
    I love you Mike Huckabee and respect what you stand for, but I want you, Shapiro and the rest of the conservative press to start demanding all of our Republican representatives to stand up and actually lead us. Call them out by name and demand they publicly lead and Do Something and Follow Through and most of all be accountable. I believe the the silent conservative majority and Constitution believing citizens of this country are looking for this kind of leadership.

    Hello. I can't find the reference to the 3 potential terror threats on dhs site, when I google it. Can you provide the location for those?

    In a longer narrative on the dhs bulletin, there is reference to domestic extremists, but not the 3 point threats that are shown on your new (or the reviewers article).
    Please advise Thank you!

    They were stupid enough to leave our equipment behind. Now that it has fallen into the hands of the enemy, is it not the height of stupidity to leave it for them to use against us rather than blowing it up ourselves?.. we have drones capable

    Questions from Peter Docey.
    I do not think Biden bowed his head and gripped his notebook because he did not know how to answer the question but instead it was a more because he called on a reporter he was not told to call on. He had his usual list. FOX reporters are not on the list, ever. He accidently called on a face he recogonized and when he realized he had gone off scrip and disobeyed his instruction from his handlers, he lowered his head in a "O my gosh, what have I done, I will get into trouble for this," moment. To me, this is the most likely senerio and then he fumbled through until he could get out to his "next meeting:;. The little boy was in trouble and mommie was going to fuss at him!!!!
