There are so many stories out of Afghanistan that are heartbreaking and infuriating that I hate to have to relate them, but sadly, this is the news under President Biden. So in the hopes that this message will actually penetrate his thick border wall of arrogant, defensive stubbornness, I will share these stories:
Among the people Biden left behind to fend for themselves are 24 Sacramento school children who were prevented by the Taliban from reaching the airport and who are now in hiding.
There’s also a report of a pregnant American woman who was trying to get past a checkpoint with her husband when she was kicked in the stomach by the Taliban. She’s now in hiding as well.
And then there’s the story of the Afghan interpreter who actually helped save Biden’s life in 2008 when he and two Senators were in a helicopter that was forced to land in a remote valley due to a snowstorm.
After years of service and helping our soldiers in over 100 firefights, he and his wife and four children are in hiding from the Taliban because their efforts to get out were blocked by bureaucracy. He has a message from his hiding place: “Hello, Mr. President. Save me and my family. Don’t forget me here.”
I hope you’ll join me in praying for the safety of everyone who's been left behind, and for our President to stop congratulating himself on his "extraordinary success" and do something to help all these people, if it’s not already too late.
I would also suggest that the motto of the Biden Administration be “Accountability? What’s that?” if it didn’t have so much competition from “Competence? What’s that?”
But to show just how desperate the Democrats are to doge accountability for the four-alarm dumpster fire that Biden created in Afghanistan, House Democrats blocked efforts by Republican members who are Afghan war vets to introduce a bill requiring the White House to present a plan to bring the Americans Biden left trapped in Afghanistan safely home. Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell, who was presiding over the chamber, gaveled them out of session, not only blocking the legislation but also their efforts to read the names of the 13 service members who were killed in last week’s suicide bombing at Kabul airport into the Congressional Record.
Dingell shut down House debate as some members shouted at her, “How can you not read the names?” and “Turn your back on your country!”
I will remind you that these are the same House Democrats who arranged the equivalent of a State Funeral for a Capitol Police officer who died after the January Capitol riot that they’re trying to gin up into an actual insurrection attempt, even though he really died of a stroke unrelated to the protest. Yet they won’t even allow the names to be read of military veterans who really did give their lives fighting genuine violent terrorists in the service of their country.
I could tell you what I think about this and the remedy for it, but Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media saved me the trouble by writing an article titled, “Banish Democrats From Office Until They Elect Some Non-Commie Adults.”
Kruiser traces the recent history of the Dem leadership and how it’s separated from regular working Democrats to become an insane, juvenile, far-left madhouse motivated almost entirely by spite against Trump and Republicans. He notes that their adult toddler tantrum has gone from tedious to disturbing to now having a body count, and that’s enough. What must be done? He answers:
“Should we make it to November 2022 relatively intact, it is imperative that American voters who don’t live in the coastal commie bubbles (or Chicago) rise up and make sure that this current crop of Democratic party rulers isn’t allowed anywhere near any kind of power again.
The 2021 Democratic elite are a metastasizing cancer that is rapidly killing a lot of the good in America. Cut that you-know-what out.”
By the way, he makes it clear that he’s not calling for one party rule, only that the voters rid the Democrats, and all of us, of their current insane, America-hating cult. Maybe then, moderate adults like Sen. Krysten Sinema can once again fill the leadership of the Party instead of being a rare outlier whom the leaders are trying to destroy for standing in the way of them destroying the country.
