Biden says he’s almost ready to quit Afghanistan

President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that he’s ready to quit Afghanistan, according to The Washington Examiner

According to the Examiner, the president’s first news conference indicated that the executive branch is concerned they won’t meet the previously negotiated deadline to make a complete withdrawal from the Middle East country. 

“It’s going to be hard to meet the May 1 deadline. Just in terms of tactical reasons, it’s hard to get those troops out,” Biden said, seeming to be warming reporters up to the idea that the withdrawal could take months, if not into next year. 

“I can’t picture that being the case,” Biden said. “But it is not my intention to stay there for a long time, but the question is, how and on what circumstances.”

According to the Examiner, the current administration has been backlogged with the logistics of pulling 2,500-plus U.S. troops, 5,000 NATO and partner troops, as well as 13,000 American contractors from Afghanistan.

“We’ve been meeting with our allies, those other nations that have NATO allies who have troops in Afghanistan as well, and if we leave, we’re going to do so in a safe and orderly way,” he said.

Biden’s decision to pull the troops at all could be considered ill-advised, at best. When word spread that NATO and the United States would be withdrawing, the Taliban issued a statement saying that it would again begin to terrorize U.S. forces as soon as possible.

“If someone ignores the Doha agreement and seeks excuses to continue the war and extend the occupation, then the mujahid nation of Afghanistan can courageously defend the values, the soil, the country, and their rights same as they have before, as proven in history,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in a statement

head of U.S. Special Operations Command Army Gen. Richard Clarke told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Afghan military is still in critical need of U.S. help to fend off the Taliban. 

“It’s clear that the Taliban have not upheld what they said they would do and reduce the violence,” Clarke testified referencing an agreement made with the Trump administration. “While progress has been made … the capabilities that the U.S. provides for the Afghans to be able to combat the Taliban and other threats that reside in Afghanistan are critical to their success.”

Just like the DEMORATS did Vietnam, their trying to DO IT AGAIN . . . “Throw them Away”, just like BEFORE, the only “Real” difference, is those COMING HOME no longer have to deal with “Civilans”, as we who were in the NAM had to, back in the day . . .

Biden will leave a lot of the military equipment behind to give the Taliban and ISIS more vehicles with weapons to strengthen their forces. The same thing Obama did before. They will just buy more to replace what they leave behind. He doesn’t have to pay for it so what does he care?

Solution to the problem:
of the press vilifying the police, by accusing the police of hunting down and killing minorities. The press has no evidence of such a trend. They are using this only to increase their ratings and sell papers. This is done by vilifying and endangering law enforcement officers, putting them more at risk for doing their job. The solution is simply to make the media and the press, also print the justification for their reporting, in other words if they can’t report the facts they should not report anything. If they report something that later is found not to be true, they must print a redaction on the front page, that covers at least half of the page, a long with an apology to any that might have been aversely effected by the report. You would soon see better more responsible reporting when the press sees redactions on the front page instead of hiding them in back where they are never seen. I think that all states need to put a law on the books, that would require all papers to put redaction on the front page, a long with an apology to any that may have been aversely effected by the report. Also media outlets could put redactions on their home pages for all to see. Now don’t you think that would be a good thing. To see people like Suckerberg, Darcy, have to take responsibility for reporting on their sites.

Biden at the border:
This is the mess that a duly unelected president has made for the country. A man who has no idea of what he is doing, and who ever is pulling his strings does not either. They don’t want to call this a crisis that it is challenging, well it is a CHALLENGING CRISIS, a mess of epic proportions that needs a man of epic proportion to solve it. It needs a Trump to trump it. The people now on the thrown have shown that they are not capable of handling the situation, and therefore need to step aside.

OUR SOURHERN BOARDERS HAVE BEEN A BIG PROBLEM FOR YEARS AND GERATIONS.
STARTING BEFORE PRESIDENT REGAN ALL CONGRESSES AND PRESIDENTS HAVE KICKED THE IMMIGRATION ISSUES DOWN TO THE NEXT CYCLE OR GENERATION.
ALL PRESIDENTS AND CONGRESSES HAVE ABROGATED T THEIR CONSTITUTIOAL RESPONSIBILITES AND DUTIES ALL THESE YEARS AND NOW PRESIDENT BIDEN HAS METASTASISED THE SIGNIICANT OVER FLOW AT THE SOUTHER BOARDER PROGRAMICALY OUT OF CONTROL AND AT SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE TO AMERICAN CITZENS AND IMMIRGATES.
IT NOW TIME TO REVERSE THE BIDEN EXEXECUTIVE ORDER IMMEDIATELY RE THE BOARDERS AND TAKE A VERY DEEP BPREATH UNTIL CONGRESS GENERATES LEGISLTIVE SOLUTIONS TO THE PAST AND BIDENS OWNED BOARDER MISS STEP JUDGEMENTS

The more this fool does or announces just adds to the basis for his impeachment. It can be — it should be — done NOW.

Taking credit for something President Trump was already doing. He had to wait a while, so no one would remember that. Obiden, actually do something for America that wasn’t already done or started by President Trump.

Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.
