This is probably the death stroke to NATO, and to US credibility.
And the end came, for Afghanistan, and for the reputation of all the Democrats who had made Joe Biden president and who could no longer pretend that he was remotely competent.
The Democrats own Biden. And now they own Afghanistan. They own the chaos. They own the deaths of the people who held onto, and then fell from, the airplane that took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport—which perhaps the Taliban will rename Osama Bin Laden International Airport, or perhaps Joe Biden International Airport, which would be more fitting.
This is probably the death stroke to NATO, and to US credibility, and a massive gift to Russia’s Putin and China’s Xi. Our enemies are laughing. Our friends and allies are quaking— and hurling well-deserved insults at Biden. The London Daily Telegraph’s headline was “Parliament holds the president in contempt,” and described the criticism as an unprecedented rebuke to a US president.
This disaster is the second kick of a mule. This is Saigon revisited, only worse. Much worse. Those Democrats will own the street gangs of Taliban thugs going door to door to murder the women and girls who took “Gender Studies” courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. The Democrats own it all.
Colin Powell owns Joe Biden. Here’s what Powell said at the Democratic National Convention: “Joe Biden will be a president we will all be proud to salute. With Joe Biden in the White House, you will never doubt that he will stand with our friends and stand up to our adversaries—never the other way around. He will trust our diplomats and our intelligence community, not the flattery of dictators and despots. He will make it his job to know when anyone dares to threaten us. He will stand up to our adversaries with strength and experience. They will know he means business.” Colin Powell owns Afghanistan too.
Barack Obama said in his speech at the convention, “Joe knows the world and the world knows him.” It sure knows him now. Obama definitely owns Joe Biden. And he owns Afghanistan.
Biden himself said (this is cringe-worthy): “I’ll be a president who’ll stand with our allies and friends and make it clear to our adversaries, the days of cozying up to dictators is over. . . . I’ll always stand for our values of human rights and dignity.” Yup. You bet.
It was predictable, and predicted, that there’d be blood flowing in the streets of Afghanistan. And then on August 26 there was: in an attack on the airport, 13 U.S. servicemen were killed and 18 wounded, and 170 Afghans were killed and scores more wounded. Unbelievable carnage.
And the Democrats own it all, the Democratic office holders, and their media shills. And all their Trump Derangement Syndrome supporters who made it possible. This is their moment. This is their triumph. Lights. Camera. Action. Screen shots. This is history. This is their history. Who will ever be able to forget it?
Answer: It probably wasn’t even recorded on social media—or if it was, it’s probably already been scrubbed. And if you bring it up and ask any questions about it, you may be designated by the national security boys and girls (if they can tell themselves apart) as a domestic terrorist.
What’s next? A lot!
The Democrats own the crisis at the southern border too; illegal immigrants pouring across the border, by the hundreds of thousands, bringing crime and disease. They own all of that.
Because they own Biden.
And now there’ll be a lot more refugees, coming from everywhere, riding the wave, not even having to sneak across the border: just strolling across, bringing whatever they have to offer—disease, fentanyl, crime, pleasure killings: the Democrats own all of that too. All of it.
Because they own Biden. They all own him. Him and all his senility. They own it all.
Anyone can see Biden is at best senile—he struggles for words and thoughts, even, in one video, to find the path back to the White House.
What calamity, what catastrophe is next?
Now surely the time for invoking the 25th Amendment has come. If not now, when? If not to remove Joe Biden, whom?
But they won’t do it because they get their power from keeping the senile Joe Biden in office. Their power and their salaries. These are “public servants” mainly, which means they are getting paid far more than they are worth, far more probably than they could get in what’s known as the “private sector,” a sector many of them disdain.
It’s important to remember the perfidy of the Democrats and all the other Biden-enablers. Some of them may try, now, to absolve themselves, by saying Biden has become senile. Of course he’s senile now, but he was senile when they supported him during the 2020 campaign.
But it’s worse even than that. He’s also stupid—and everyone knows it—so stupid he lied about his law school class ranking, which was easily exposed. Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said of Biden, “He’s been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” which is just what you’d expect of a man stupid enough to lie in public about his law school class ranking. The Democrats own Joe Biden. They own his stupidity. They own his senility. And now they own Afghanistan.
This is as low a moment as America has suffered—perhaps ever. It’s time for Joe to go, but you know he won’t. He’ll remain, a senile giant, lurching from disaster to disaster, always supported by the sycophants, the media suck-ups, and the unbelievably and irredeemably corrupt politicians.
So the end came for Afghanistan. And so the end can come for everyone.
Even for us.
