Today we take our readers to the Heritage Foundation to read, “Joe Biden Has Been a Monumental Disaster.” It’s a bit of a circuitous ride, since this commentary originally appeared in the U.K.’s The Telegraph (which requires a subscription.).
Joe Biden is rightfully getting whacked by our stunned allies as well as Americans who are appalled by the horrific visuals we have seen accompanying his botched withdrawal and stunning defeat in Afghanistan. The terror is real. Parents, trapped in massive crowds at the airport, surrounded by multiple circles deep of armed Taliban militants, and lacking a clear pathway forward, are desperately throwing their own infants and young children over barbed wire topped barricades to strangers in hopes of saving their lives. People have been trampled to death at the airport.
And in true Biden fashion, before taking off for his weekend retreat, he was quick to place the blame on everyone and everywhere except on his own feeble shoulders. Former President Donald Trump is always a convenient Biden go-to worthy of blame.
Colonel Richard Kemp, the former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, spoke forthrightly when he stated on ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ Sunday evening that “Biden has surrendered to the Taliban.” He went on to say, “In my opinion America is the greatest country in the world, but it is about to go into deep decline. I don’t say this lightly and I’ve never said it about anybody else – any other leader in this position.”
“People have been talking about impeaching President Biden,” Kemp told Levin. “I don’t believe President Biden should be impeached. He’s the commander in chief of the U.S. armed forces who’s just essentially surrendered to the Taliban. He shouldn’t be impeached. He should be court-martialed for betraying the United States of America and the United States armed forces.”
Col. Kemp added, “I would encourage the people of the United States to turn this situation around.” In other words, viewing the current calamitous situation, the former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan is encouraging Americans to elect Republicans.
Biden’s statements and actions of the past week show a disengaged, befuddled president who doesn’t care about Americans or their allies in Afghanistan. He is also emboldening the Communist Chinese who have been eyeing a takeover of Taiwan, and now view us as not standing up for freedom loving democracies.
Unsurprisingly, Biden’s poll numbers have continued to plummet.
