Has the White House made any statement why we are not hearing from our President tonight? This is a 20 year war..loss of so much life and money... he was VP for 8 years of the 20... we need to hear from him tonight. This is THAT important.

No public events on Biden's schedule tomorrow.

Well, there's one:

Biden finally made a statement... about when he'd be making a statement:

White House spokesgal Jen Psaki has also called a lid, and isn't coming back to work no matter what catastrophe unfolds:

This Good Time Stacey is whining about Hidin' Biden:

Mika Itchysnatch blames Biden:

Twitchy notes that Morning Joe's Zombie Liberal viewers are angry at Mika Itchysnatch.

Good Time Stacey notes Biden's previous vows that this would never, ever happen:

20 All these asshole lefty commenters on the networks squawking about how Biden "inherited" the mess in Afghanistan from Trump seem to have forgotten that Trump inherited the Afghanistan mess from Obama, and for the 8 years that those idiots were in charge of things, it was Biden who was supposed to be supervising Afghanistan.

So Biden really inherited a mess from . . . Biden.

Eh, I disagree. He had seven months in official capacity. For unofficial things - like the economic downturn that began the week after the election - then it is nine months. They did some planning during the transition period, but they couldn't actually do anything until January 20th. This Afghanistan debacle is all official, and the clock started in January.

Posted by: In Exile at August 16, 2021 12:14 PM (dPOAr)

95 I suspect that Biden's supporters in the WH are doing their best Afghan Army impressions and either running for the hills, or switching sides.

Biden is trapped: if he doesn't give a public address, he looks weak and out of touch. If he does, he's going try and blame Trump which no one will believe and may very well harden the population against him.

One of the things I keep hammering is that Biden has no core constituency. The closest he has are the upper-middle-class white progressives who comprise the managerial class and the bureaucracy's upper levels. They believed that Biden would "restore America's reputation" by which we mean their popularity with the rest of the globalist class. Instead, this disaster is a public humiliation of them as well. People will endure a lot of things, but public humiliation is one of the least.

183 I went back into the Army in 2001 after having been out for 9 years because I thought it was important to remind the world that when you come and kill Americans, we're going to respond and we're going to put a hurt on you. I never went to Afghanistan, but made four back-to-back tours to Iraq, including the initial invasion. Thankfully, I came home each time and despite a few boneheaded situations mostly of my own making. The Iraqis were never so corrupt, so perfidious, so disgustingly incompetent as is our own Federal Government. Going to Iraq was about helping to punish and deter our enemies, not flag waving or chanting "USA" on command. The fight for Freedom, for the ability to continue to live under the protections afforded to a just and moral people under the Constitution is here, and it is now. We have never faced an enemy so determined to have their way, their own misguided and dangerous way, as we do know, even if we take into consideration the traitorous actions of Jefferson Davis and the Slavocracy of the old South.

190 Granted this is further evidence that the president is asleep at the wheel and all that, but ... I'm finding it hard to care. Ace is absolutely right: this is a country where people have AK-47's like we have cell phones. If the people of Afghanistan don't want to be ruled by primitive, theocratic jihadist warlords, all they have to do is point, aim, and squeeze.

We should have been - at the very latest - out of that country within 2-3 months of Bin Laden's brains getting cold. And that was 10 years ago.

I hate the suffering that is coming to the decent men, women, and children of that place. I'm sure there are some. But knowing there's little we can do absent more prolongued occupation that just delays the inevitable, I'm finding it hard to care about any of this.

"Discovering" that Biden is incapable of handling these kinds of international crises is like discovering that water's wet.

Yes. Apparently there were solid intelligence reports that the Afghan "army", was collapsing all over the country, and were being bribed to leave their posts. This was happening weeks, if not months ago (back in May, at least).

224 FACT CHECK: Did President Biden Say Afghanistan Wouldn't End with Rooftop Helicopter Evacuations, When It Really Did?

We rate this claim as completely false. First, while Biden did make the alleged statement, he was only relaying a message developed by his press and State Department team, so they weren't really his words. Additionally, just as the mentally ill aren't liable for crimes they commit, Biden's reduced mental faculties absolve him of the responsibility of what he says.

Second, photos from Afghanistan which make it appear a helicopter landed on the roof are misleading and lacking appropriate context. The helicopter was much too big to land on the roof of the US Embassy, and instead landed in the ground within the embassy compound. Completely false!

264 Yes. Apparently there were solid intelligence reports that the Afghan "army", was collapsing all over the country, and were being bribed to leave their posts. This was happening weeks, if not months ago (back in May, at least).
Command was either in disbelief or ignored it. Or maybe they wanted this debacle.


I saw a report online that Tolly-bon had NVGs and Afghani checkpoints and patrols didn't. Tolly-bon fighters were able to roll up on checkpoints, wipe everyone out, and disappear before anyone even knew they were out there.

He's moved on to the next phase, and won't be coming back to visit. If he was even as "together" as he was 8 weeks ago, he'd have already had a presser. Granted, 3 minutes, no questions, but something. He's too far gone even for that.

I agree.

Government, as well as the family and the church, comes from God.
When government fails in its duty to punish evil and protect the good and instead protects and rewards evil while punishing good, it turns God's plan upside down.

The media NeverTrumpers and the GOP establishment are one in the same. Whining incessantly about them does f*ck-all. The GOPe have a track record of fvcking over its base for decades way before 2007. Ask Reagan about the 76' convention.
We place far too much on political parties and not enough on ourselves(citizens) to do something. Crying about the Republican Party doing something or being an opposition party is idiocy beyond the pail at this point and the joke is on you. A lot more people need to wake the fvck up.

I can practically guarantee this is intentional on the part of the Pentagon. Those assholes have been dragging their feet on the evac this whole time, advising that carnage and death would occur if things didn't happen on their timeline and with their blessing. They probably refused to put together a plan in furtherance of this foot dragging. They're probably all pointing fingers at the IC and at Biden himself and saying all this is their fault and they warned everyone.

Continuing a convo we were having a month or two ago, some of us were thinking we've got 2 factions fighting for control behind the curtains. Jill I think is in the group that's wrested control from the (IMHO) Obama sect. I think Harris was a concession for Obama, and whatever they had planned as far as replacing the turnip in chief went into the shitter around May. I mean really, does anybody seem to be in charge at the moment? Hopefully they find them all dead in Camp David or Martha's Vineyard. I think Obama's B-Day bash was cover for an emergency meeting of the elites knowing the feces were about to collide with the air circulator.

Jill is fighting back and Harris is so unlikeable that they don't dare put her into the Oval Office until absolutely necessary. The problem is that even if they invoke the 25th, "Biden" can just submit a letter to Congress that he's feeling better and then Congress has 21 days to vote on the matter.

Did those idiots hate PDT that much, or, are they so callous, they figured something like this was their road back to power?
Posted by: Blake - semi lurker at large at August 16, 2021 12:40 PM (Twgay)

My guess: we can blame the Afgan fallout on Trump as a way to wedge his supporters away. Plus, it makes the dems look bad, so they will win by default. Except this time, Reagan will be Bush. They will get a couple more spicy government depts out of the deal, steak and blowjobs all around!

Other than the Taliban and their asshole supporters, the only person truly and sincerely happy about all this is Jimmy Carter. He hung on until he was 96 years old, and can now die with a smile on his face, knowing that the number of people who would and did say the same about him has gone from 9 figures (hundreds of millions) to 3 figures (hundreds) just in the last 7 months. And those hundreds are all people who were (like Joe) completely senile when Joe was elected, so they haven't been keeping up. I seriously expect Carter to die peacefully in his bed before the end of the year: he has no reason to hang on now.

Biden, Psaki and Harris are running away to get time to find the right way to blame this on Trump, and the GOP will be - led by the usual suspects - all too eager to join in the condemnation.

Mid-terms are over a year away. Once this fades from the headlines and some bread-and-circus school shootings or St George of Floyd riots, leavened with Dominion vote-counting and nobody will give a shit anymore.

The problem is that even if they invoke the 25th, "Biden" can just submit a letter to Congress that he's feeling better and then Congress has 21 days to vote on the matter. But Congress would need 2/3s majorities to uphold Harris as Acting President.

Heh, those bought and paid for stooges of the Uniparty and CCP? I'd bet $5 that Harris's people could find a 2/3 majority to uphold the Stunning And Brave Harris as acting president, to be foresworn in as soon as they could get the embarrassing and uncool old white guy bundled out of there.

FWIW, Afghanistan was different 10 mos. ago: https://tinyurl.com/tprvfcn9

But longer term, Mike Flyn was making a big deal an=bout the situation on Afghanistan being much different/worse than what the general were saying -- the entire Afghanistan Papers project started when General Michael Flynn filed an IG report that the Pentagon was lying about the war

. . . and then he got ensnared by Deep State (so he wouldn't serve under Trump). That's another significant way in which Trump was hobbld/unable to act in Afghanistan.

Yep, Trump's hands were tied in more ways than one.

Then, when you consider we have opened our borders to a million people through June.... The poor are getting hammered hard in the Biden economy.

592 There actually is a non-ridiculous argument over the effects and wisdom of the "peace process" Trump's team undertook that led to an agreement in February 2020.

But if one steps back and keeps the overall picture in mind, I find the claims by some that the demoralization of the Afghan regime/forces which is allegedly a byproduct of that process/deal was the key to this rapid collapse ..... unpersuasive.

Even, for analysis, granting the premise that any deal with the Taliban would have huge corrosive effect on the regime's ability to operate and resist - which is itself quite reasonable - what was the alternative?

We're not talking about pulling the Colts out of Baltimore in the dead of night here. It is difficult to imagine a disengagement process that could be kept secret, and that wouldn't have the same effect on Afghan regime morale and calculations, *regardless of the details, style, or timing*.

So the Wizards of Smart are going with "We thought there was a possibility of the Taliban taking over once we broke the agreement Trump had that was signed off on by every guy with any sort of power in Afghanistan, including the Taliban, and was detailed as to who was going to do what, when people were going to leave, and how the equipment was going to be moved out"?

600 Continuing a convo we were having a month or two ago, some of us were thinking we've got 2 factions fighting for control behind the curtains. Jill I think is in the group that's wrested control from the (IMHO) Obama sect. I think Harris was a concession for Obama, and whatever they had planned as far as replacing the turnip in chief went into the shitter around May. I mean really, does anybody seem to be in charge at the moment? Hopefully they find them all dead in Camp David or Martha's Vineyard. I think Obama's B-Day bash was cover for an emergency meeting of the elites knowing the feces were about to collide with the air circulator.

This, Jill is holding on with both hands and will not let anything get in her way of being FLOTUS and ghost president. She might have a terrible accident and Joe have to resign in mourning.

____________

The million who came in the first six months are only the number who were stopped and officially counted by ICE. The real numbers are much, much higher, because ICE only encounters about 10% of illegal border crossers.

So as bad as it is to think that a million illegal aliens, most of them poor and unskilled and uneducated, many of them diseased (over 80% of current COVID patients in McAllen TX hospitals are illegal aliens, being treated on the U.S. taxpayers' dime), many of them criminals, have flooded across our southern border in just the past six months, the reality is much, much worse. The real number is closer to 10 million. In just six months.

669 Because the 50/50 split in the Senate becomes interesting when Harris become President. Could the Senate simply refuse to fill the spot, leaving the Senate truly split?

If the GOP wanted a fun fight, they could announce that they'd *only* support Jon Tester or Joe Manchin for VP.

Make the Dems lose the Senate to get the VP slot. And make those two senators really pissed when the Dems refuse.

I don't think we'll ever know the entirety of what happened. I think the Chinese and the Iranians have been planning all this for at least the last decade. There's also all the Tolly-bon Generals Obastard released from Gitmo.

There's the fact that Afghanistan is controlled by about 40 different warlords who are easily manipulated by offering to settle scores for them. There's also the fact that a lot of the Afghani military were there for a paycheck and some fun. As soon as it stopped being fun and a paycheck, they were out.

Plenty of trainers have stories about entire groups of Afghani trainees getting frustrated or angry and quitting on the spot during training. The trainees also mostly couldn't read, write, drive a vehicle, and were uncoordinated imbeciles.
