ATLANTA, GA-

Symptoms of dementia:

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty in communication
  • Difficulty handling complex tasks
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Hallucinations
  • Agitation

There are of course many more. One look at Joe Biden and it’s pretty simple even for amateurs to diagnose.

He hasn’t lost a step…he’s lost 100 yards—you know, the length of a blade on a windmill. He also once again forgot that he’s the president, not Kamala Harris. 

Biden’s latest foray into the land of the lost occurred during a bizarre appearance in Georgia Tuesday, when he went on a confusing, sometimes unhinged rant about voting rights, alternating between barely coherent to yelling, still incoherently.

Biden’s appearance in Georgia came as Democrats are continuing to tout the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” and the “Freedom to Vote Act,” bills which would more accurately be labeled the “Democrats Need to Cheat to Win” acts.

The choice of Georgia is odd, since recent voter integrity laws in that state are actually less restrictive than laws in blue states such as New York, Connecticut, and Biden’s home state of Delaware.

According to Breitbart, during his unhinged rambling, Biden told the audience, consisting primarily of black students, on the grounds of Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University that he had been arrested during the civil rights struggle, although there is apparently zero evidence that ever happened.

This is just another in a long line of “Biden being Biden” claims which have no grounding in reality.

Biden’s speech told the students at the HBCU’s that a vote on these bills would be a “defining” moment, and would decide whether lawmakers chose to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis.

Given the fact this speech was given at a university, it’s unknown if the students even know who Lincoln and Davis are. But we digress.

The struggle to protect voting rights has never been borne by one group alone. We saw Freedom Fighters of every race, leaders of every faith, marching arm in arm—and yes, Democrats and Republicans in Congress of the United States and in the presidency.

I did not live the struggles of Douglass, Tubman, King, Lewis, Goodman, Chaney and Schwerner, countless others known and unknown. I did not walk in the shoes of generation of students who walked these grounds.

But I walked other grounds, because I’m so damn old I was there as well. [Thank you Captain Obvious]

They think I’m kidding, man. It seems like yesterday, the first time I got arrested—anyway. But their struggles, here, they’re the ones that opened my eyes as a high school student in the late 50s and early 60s. Thy got me more engaged in the work of my life.

Biden caught himself when he said he had been arrested—probably realizing that he was dropping another line of BS. However a number of people caught the obvious lie.

As mentioned, Biden often has issues telling the truth. For example, in 2020 he had to pull back on a claim he made that he was arrested in South Africa while trying to see Nelson Mandela in jail, a blatant lie.

During the presidential campaign in 2020 in South Carolina, Biden was confronted with claims he made in 1987 during his first run for president, when he claimed in New Hampshire that he had “marched in the civil rights movement,” which was a lie.

“I was one of those guys that sat in and marched and all that stuff.”

The problem was it never happened.

In such low regard is Biden currently held even in his own party due to his cratering poll numbers, that the governor of Georgia who never was, Stacey Abrams, didn’t even show up at the event with Biden.

Biden has always had an issue with the truth, from claiming his father was a coal miner in Scranton, Pennsylvania to his having been a truck driver to him not knowing anything about his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings.

You’ve heard the saying that George Washington “could not tell a lie?” In the case of Biden, he “cannot tell the truth.”

WASHINGTON, DC- “The buck stops here!” That’s what Joe Biden says…while in the next breath, he blames former President Trump for his incompetence.

For someone who has overturned every policy implemented by the former president, Biden now finds it convenient to try to blame Trump for his ineptitude in handling the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

At a press briefing after the airport at Kabul, Afghanistan was attacked by ISIS terrorists, resulting in thirteen American service members losing their lives, along with over 100 Afghans, Biden waited six hours to come out and make the claim that he “accepted responsibility” for the attack before quickly blaming Trump.

Now of all places, the Associated Press basically assigned four Pinocchio’s to Biden’s claims. When a leftist like Biden loses the AP, you know something is off.

According to the AP:

“As President Donald Trump’s administration signed a peace deal with the Taliban in February 2020, he optimistically proclaimed that ‘we think we’ll be successful in the end.’ His secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, asserted that the administration was ‘seizing the best opportunity for peace in a generation.’

“Eighteen months later, President Joe Biden is pointing to the agreement signed in Doha, Qatar, as he tries to deflect blame for the Taliban overrunning Afghanistan in a blitz. He says it bound him to withdraw U.S. troops, setting the stage for the chaos engulfing the country.

“But Biden can only go so far in claiming the agreement boxed him in. It had an escape clause: The U.S. could have withdrawn from the accord if Afghan peace talks failed. They did, but Biden chose to stay in it, although he delayed the complete pullout from May to September.”

In other words, while Trump had made an agreement in principle with the Taliban, they had not fulfilled key parts of that agreement, thereby rendering it null and void.

The Taliban was committed to achieve certain benchmarks and when those benchmarks were not reached, the deal should have been called off. But Biden, ever the feckless one, kept the U.S. in the deal and put the Taliban in charge.

Never before in American history has a president ceded our position to the enemy, least of all a group of virtual goat farmers. Yet here we are.

Continuing the AP said:

“U.S. officials made clear at the time that the agreement was conditions-based, and the failure of intra-Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw.

“One day before the Doha deal, a top aide to chief U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said the agreement was not irreversible, and ‘there is no obligation for the United States to withdraw troops if the Afghan parties are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith’ during negotiations.

“These negotiations were intended to begin within a month of the deal being signed but were delayed amid disputes between the Taliban and the Afghan government over prisoner releases.

Amid fits and starts, the negotiations had not produced any outcome by the time Biden announced his withdrawal decision in April. Nor have they done so since.” [emphasis added]

On Thursday in an interview with Breitbart News, the former president said the deal he signed in 2020 with Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar was based on the condition there would be no American casualties.

“And the people that I was doing a very good job of dealing with—remember, we haven’t had a soldier killed in a year and a half,” Trump told Breitbart. “That was part of—that was a condition. No soldiers were killed—no American soldier was killed.”

Trump laid the blame for the chaos in Afghanistan squarely on Biden.

“When you have something that’s so obviously stupid and everybody else goes along with it, he must be to a certain extent calling the shots,” he said.

“Take a look at what happened. He came up with a plan so crazy, and stupid. And the people can’t be that dumb they would go to approve it. So he must have said this is what he wants to do, and they went along with it.”

“All he had to do is a similar thing—what I was doing just taking the military out last, and when everybody is out, when all the equipment is out, and everything is gone, and then we just take the military and we wave ‘bye bye,’” Trump said.

“Call it a bad experience. And we would have got out with great dignity, and we could have even claimed victory. This is a pure loss.”

Trump also slammed Biden for removing the military before all the civilians were out.

“Because everybody knows. A child would know, you take the military out last. You get everybody out, then you get all the equipment—you take your $83 billion worth of equipment—then you blow up the bases.

And perhaps you stay at, you take a certain area you may want to keep like Bagram [Air Base] and keep the base Bagram because it’s next to China and Iran.”

As the AP noted, Trump’s proposed withdrawal of US forces was “conditions based,” yet there was no clear-cut obligation for the US to pull out all the troops if the Taliban and Afghan government couldn’t come to an agreement on a coalition government.

Trump also, the AP noted, threatened the Taliban that he’d “rain fire and brimstone on the Taliban” if they tried any “bad stuff.”

The AP concluded that what this whole mess boiled down to was that Biden wanted the troops out of Afghanistan even though he wasn’t obligated to do so. Our thought is he wanted a notch under his belt to have all troops out of the region before the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks next month.

Biden and his advisers clearly didn’t care at all about the consequences of such a reckless and hasty withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

Only when ISIS attacked the perimeter of the Kabul airport did Biden acknowledge “some” responsibility for the withdrawal, however still trying to pin it on President Trump, where clearly the decision was his to make and his alone.

He has shown no hesitancy in overturning other executive orders, policies, and agreements made by President Trump, so his excuse that he had “no choice” in this matter is laughable.

Thirteen American heroes paid with their lives for his incompetence. That is the legacy Biden will leave behind.

In case you missed it, here’s a prior report we filed where Biden was slammed by President Trump for his handling of Afghanistan. 

DIG DEEPER

UNITED STATES- On Thursday, August 19th, former President Donald Trump explained in a statement the correct way President Joe Biden should have conducted the Afghan withdrawal – and it starts with getting Americans out first.

Trump’s statement said:

“First you bring out all of the American citizens. Then you bring out ALL equipment. Then you bomb the bases to smithereens. AND THEN YOU BRING OUT THE MILITARY.”

He added:

“You don’t do it in reverse order like Biden and our woke Generals did. No chaos, no death — they wouldn’t even know we left!”

Trump’s critique of Biden’s withdrawal underscores the unknown amount of Americans still trapped in the collapsed country since Sunday, August 15th.

Reportedly, estimates have ranged from 10,000 to 40,000, with the Associated Press (AP) reporting on Thursday, August 19th, that 15,000 Americans are stranded.

The United States has evacuated only about 2,000 Americans since the 15th and Russia has since offered to evacuate Afghans.

The AP also reported that the Taliban have erected “checkpoints and curfews” that have limited the number of Americans and Afghans able to enter the airport.

The State Department has asked Americans to travel to the airport to be extracted, however, the U.S. military stated that they cannot guarantee Americans will be safe doing so. On Wednesday, August 17th, the U.S. embassy in Kabul announced a “first come, first serve basis” for flights out of the country. The statement said:

“Please be advised that a significant number of individuals have registered and space on these flights is available on a first come, first serve basis. You may be required to wait at the airport for a significant amount of time until space is available.”

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that nearly 4,500 American troops are protecting the airport while the State Department evacuates those trapped amid the chaos and increased brutalization by the Taliban within the country.

On Thursday, August 19th, the New York Times reported that Taliban terrorists are “intensifying” their searches for individuals “they believe worked with U.S. and NATO forces,” including among the crowds of Afghans at Kabul’s airport.

The Taliban has said it will “kill or arrest their family members if they cannot find them.” A Washington Post columnist tweeted that Biden left so much military equipment behind in the country that he practically gave the Taliban an air force. 

Reportedly, from 2003-2019, the American taxpayer sent the following to Afghanistan:

75,898 vehicles;
599,690 weapons;
162,643 pieces of communications equipment;
208 aircrafts;
6,191 pieces of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance equipment;
7,035 machine guns;
4,702 Humvees;
20,040 hand grenades;
2,520 bombs; and
1,394 grenade launchers

The Hill reported that as of June 30, 2021, Afghanistan had “211 U.S.-supplied aircrafts in their inventory.” Among those aircrafts seized by the Taliban are Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft.

Over the last two decades, the United States has spent an estimated $83 billion training and equipping Afghan security forces. It is unclear exactly how many weapons have fallen into the hands of the Taliban, but the Biden administration has acknowledged it’s a “fair amount.”

On Wednesday, August 18th, more than two dozen Republican senators demanded a “full accounting” of U.S. military equipment given to Afghan forces over the past 12 months, what’s been seized by the Taliban and what plans there are to either recapture or destroy the equipment.

The 25 senators, led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin:

“As we watched the images coming out of Afghanistan as the Taliban retook the country, we were horrified to see U.S. equipment, including UH-60 Black Hawks, in the hands of the Taliban.”

They added:

“It is unconscionable that high-tech military equipment paid for by U.S. taxpayers has fallen into the hands of the Taliban and their terrorist allies. Securing U.S. assets should have been among the top priorities for the U.S. Department of Defense prior to announcing the withdrawal from Afghanistan.”

CNN reporter says Taliban is “chanting ‘Death to America'” but says “they seem friendly at the same time”

August 17th, 2021

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – In what can only be described as a bizarre scene Monday, CNN chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward translated an interview with a Taliban fighter in Kabul, who she described as “friendly,” while other fighter chanted “death to America” nearby.

The interview was conducted following the fall of Kabul to the Taliban as American troops leave the country. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani reportedly fled the country upon the arrival of Taliban forces.

Ward interviewed a Taliban fighter outside the abandoned U.S. Embassy. Ward said that the Taliban were clearly in charge of Afghanistan:

“As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge. Taliban fighters have flooded the capital. Smiling and victorious, they took this city of 6 million people in a matter of hours — barely firing a shot.

“This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see: scores of Taliban fighters, and just behind us, the U.S. embassy compound. Some carry American weapons. They tell us they’re here to maintain law and order.”

Ward described the streets of the city as mainly filled with the Taliban, and that there were “far fewer women” than normal. Ward said that she was even treated differently by the Taliban because of her gender:

“They’ve just told me to stand to the side because I’m a woman.”

Many Afghans are trying to flee the city as the Taliban take control, but Ward said the group has a “bizarre sort of mystique” which leads some to view them as heroes:

“It’s a very odd cocktail that you find on the streets of Kabul with so many people hiding, and other people peeking out to see what comes next, and nobody really knowing what on Earth to expect.”

For those caught in the Taliban resurgence, which took hold of the country much faster than the Biden administration expected, Ward said the Afghans seemed trapped with no escape plan:

“There’s definitely no plan in place to try to evacuate these people safely.”

President Biden and other U.S. officials were caught off guard by the rapid Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, which threw the planned withdrawal of American forces from the country into chaos. The withdrawal quickly deteriorated into a mission to safely evacuate American personnel from the country.

By Sunday night, senior officials were forced to admit they were surprised by the advance of the Taliban and the collapse of Afghan security forces. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told news reporters:

“We’ve seen that that (security) force has been unable to defend the country, and that has happened more quickly than we anticipated.”

National security adviser Jake Sullivan said Monday that Afghanistan fell faster than the administration expected, and blamed the government’s fall on the Afghans themselves:

“At the end of the day, despite the fact that we spent 20 years and tens of billions of dollars to give the best equipment, the best training and the best capacity to the Afghan security forces, we could not give them the will and they ultimately decided that they would not fight for Kabul, and they would not fight for the country.”

President Biden, facing increasing criticism from both sides of the aisle, interrupted his Camp David vacation to address the country on the events in Afghanistan on Monday afternoon. During the speech, after saying he accepted responsibility for the chaos, the President passed the blame to the Afghans.

“I stand squarely behind my decision. After 20 years I’ve learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw U.S. forces. I am president of the United States of America. The buck stops with me. The truth is, this did unfold more quickly than we anticipated.

“American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. We gave them every chance to determine their own future. We could not provide them with the will to fight for that future.”
