Pelosi Shows Off Her Detachment From Reality By Defending Biden’s Judgment

Pelosi Shows Off Her Detachment From Reality By Defending Biden’s Judgment

Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed how detached from reality she is when she defended President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, telling reporters that she trusts Biden’s “judgment”

WHAT? Is Pelosi watching the same news as everyone else? 

President Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is indefensible and has been criticized as a disaster by both Democratic and Republican lawmakers. 

It’s simple: Afghanistan is President Biden’s Saigon, and Americans’ don’t trust President Biden’s judgment when it comes to Afghanistan for good reason.

BIDEN’S SAIGON:

  • President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. 
  • Biden is the one who decided to pull out U.S. forces by the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
    • Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump struck a deal that included a conditions-based withdrawal of our military. 
    • The conditions of that agreement were continuously violated by the Taliban and the Biden administration did not hold them accountable. 
    • The Biden administration had been warned that the Taliban would stop at nothing until they retook the country. Now, the Taliban is back and the United States is less safe . 
    • The decision by the Biden Administration to abandon Bagram Air Base early and leave only a few hundred troops at Hamid Karzai International Airport opened the door to the Taliban’s rapid takeover. 
  • Due to Joe Biden’s failure to adequately plan, there are now more than twice the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan than when he took office. 
  • Biden has surrendered to the Taliban’s arbitrary timeline. 
  • The Biden Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan. This is unacceptable and un-American. 
  • Rather than cave to the Taliban and comply with an arbitrary deadline, the President must guarantee every single American is evacuated, no matter how long it takes. 
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.
  • The Taliban are now in possession of American weapons, including helicopters, airplanes, tanks, Humvees, and other military-grade weapons.

Joe Biden must fight for every American life until the mission is complete. Anything less is unacceptable and UN-AMERICAN.

President Biden Caves To The Taliban’s Timeline

President Biden Caves To The Taliban’s Timeline

Today, President Biden surrendered unconditionally and agreed to the Taliban’s arbitrary withdrawal timeline rather than ensuring Americans’ safety. 

This should not be a negotiation. America doesn’t cave to terrorists, we set our own timelines. The President must guarantee that every American is safely evacuated no matter how long it takes.

President Biden is turning his back on the safety and security of the American people who are STRANDED behind enemy lines. His Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan.

Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal has put U.S. weapons and military equipment in the hands of known terrorists who will use them to attack innocent people, solidify their reign of terror abroad, and threaten our national security.

Joe Biden must fight for every American life until the mission is complete. Anything less is unacceptable and UN-AMERICAN.

  • Joe Biden has surrendered to the Taliban’s arbitrary timeline. 
  • President Biden’s indefensible decisions and failure to lead are squarely to blame for the situation in Afghanistan.
  • Every single American must be safely evacuated as quickly as possible from Afghanistan.
  • The Biden Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan. This is unacceptable and un-American. 
  • Rather than cave to the Taliban and comply with an arbitrary deadline, the President must guarantee every single American is evacuated, no matter how long it takes. 
  • Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs John Kirby joined CNN where he ADMITTED the Administration has NO PLANS to help Americans get out of Afghanistan.
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.
  • The Taliban are now in possession of American weapons, including helicopters, airplanes, tanks, Humvees, and other military-grade weapons.
  • White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to admit that Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, despite an abundance of evidence to the contrary.

Biden Still Can’t Guarantee Safe Passage for Americans In Afghanistan, U.S Allies Uneasy

As the world looks on, President Biden continues to exemplify weakness and failure, instead of confidence.

The Biden Administration STILL cannot guarantee safe passage for Americans being forced to hide in Afghanistan. Americans should not have to rely on the Taliban to safely get out of Afghanistan.

France and the U.K. are having their troops leave the lines of the Kabul airport to help evacuate their citizens. Why is President Biden not doing the same to save stranded Americans?

This is unacceptable and UNAMERICAN. Why is there no clear plan to get Americans, our friends, and allies out of Afghanistan?

WE ARE STILL WAITING ON BIDEN’S PLAN: 

  • The Biden Administration has yet to present a clear plan to Congress
    • How the U.S. will get Americans safely out of Afghanistan; 
      • According to the Pentagon, there are 10,000-15,000 American citizens still in Afghanistan – how will the Biden-Harris administration ensure their safety?
      • Relying on the Taliban is not an acceptable strategy.
    • How the U.S. will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan;
    • How the U.S. will prevent terrorist organizations from regrouping in Afghanistan; and 
    • How will the U.S. protect the homeland from emerging terrorist threats in Afghanistan.

BIDEN’S FAILURES LEAD TO AMERICA’S ERODING STANDING IN THE WORLD 

  • Biden’s catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and put doubt in the minds of our allies
    • China, Iran and Russia wasted no time attempting to advance their own interests by seizing on President Biden’s failure.
    • U.S. allies are questioning U.S. resolve and frustrated that the President’s decisions have put their own national security at risk.

British lawmakers vented their anger at President Biden over the collapse of Afghanistan into Taliban hands, calling it a failure of intelligence, leadership and moral duty.

The Biden Administration Refuses To Commit To Safely Evacuating All Americans

Both President Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to commit to safely evacuating all Americans in Afghanistan during a press conference this afternoon. 

This is unacceptable and UNAMERICAN

The Biden Administration cannot guarantee safe passage for all Americans being forced to hide in Afghanistan because they have no plan. 

WHERE IS BIDEN’S PLAN: 

  • The Biden Administration needs to present a clear plan to Congress promptly on: 
    • How the U.S. will get Americans safely out of Afghanistan;
      • According to the Pentagon, there are 10,000-15,000 American citizens still in Afghanistan – how will the Biden-Harris administration ensure their safety? 
    • How the U.S. will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan;
    • How the U.S. will prevent terrorist organizations from regrouping in Afghanistan; and 
    • How will the U.S. protect the homeland from emerging terrorist threats in Afghanistan.

It’s simple: Every single American must be safely evacuated as quickly as possible from Afghanistan. Anything less is an unAmerican failure.

Joe Biden has NO PLAN

The Biden Administration’s spokesman John Kirby told CNN this morning that the Biden Administration has no plans to help Americans hiding in Afghanistan get to the airport to be evacuated. 

Let that sink in. President Biden has NO plan to help Americans who are hiding from the Taliban get out of Afghanistan. 

Kirby’s comments come less than a day after President Biden told the nation and the world “the administration planned for every possibility,” a talking point that is proving more and more false with each passing day. 

WHERE IS BIDEN’S PLAN: 

  • The Biden Administration needs to present a clear plan to Congress promptly on: 
    • How the U.S. will get Americans safely out of Afghanistan’
      • According to the Pentagon, there are 10,000-15,000 American citizens still in Afghanistan – how will the Biden-Harris administration ensure their safety? 
    • How the U.S. will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan;
    • How the U.S. will prevent terrorist organizations from regrouping in Afghanistan; and 
    • How will the U.S. protect the homeland from emerging terrorist threats in Afghanistan.

 THIS IS BIDEN’S SAIGON:

  • President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. 
    • Biden is the one who decided to pull out U.S. forces by the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
    • Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump struck a deal that included a conditions-based withdrawal of our military. 
    • The conditions of that agreement were continuously violated by the Taliban and the Biden administration did not hold them accountable. 
  • President Biden did a lot of finger-pointing during his address to the nation on Monday, but it was his indefensible decisions and failure to prepare that have created the national security and humanitarian crisis currently unfolding.
  • The administration had been warned that the Taliban would stop at nothing until they retook the country. Now, the Taliban is back and the United States is less safe – all because of the irresponsibility of the Biden Administration.
  • The decision by the Biden Administration to abandon Bagram Air Base early and leave only a few hundred troops at Hamid Karzai International Airport opened the door to the Taliban’s rapid takeover. 
  • Due to the Biden Administration’s failure to adequately plan, there are now more than twice the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan than when President Biden took office. 

IT’S SIMPLE: This is President Biden’s Saigon. This is President Biden’s fault. This is what failed and weak leadership looks like. Our allies and adversaries around the world are watching the most significant foreign policy and national security failure in a generation. 

President Biden’s Weak Address on the Taliban’s Takeover Of Afghanistan Before Returning To His Vacation

President Biden finally came out of hiding to briefly address the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan before quickly returning to his vacation. When the world was looking to the President of the United States for leadership, they saw nothing but failure and weakness. 

President Biden spent much of his speech taking no responsibility and blaming others for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. President Biden and his actions are to blame for the situation in Afghanistan, no one else. 

HIGHLIGHTS FROM BIDEN’S SPEECH: 

IT’S SIMPLE: This is President Biden’s Saigon. This is President Biden’s fault. This is what failed and weak leadership looks like. Our allies and adversaries around the world are watching the most significant foreign policy and national security failure in a generation. 

Afghanistan Is Joe Biden’s Saigon

Afghanistan Is Joe Biden’s Saigon

Below are statements from Leader Kevin McCarthy, Representative Michael McCaul, the Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Representative Mike Rogers, the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, regarding President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

FROM LEADER MCCARTHY:

“For 20 years, our troops have endured months-long deployments, hardships, and time away from their families to serve their country during tours of combat in Afghanistan. They dutifully responded to the call of service, and bravely fought to protect our national interests abroad. For far too many, that sacrifice meant life-altering injuries, and some even paid the ultimate sacrifice with their own lives. 

“It should have been the government’s responsibility to execute a responsible exit as we withdrew the remaining forces from the country. But in a matter of months, the Biden administration has led a botched withdrawal process that has now predictably handed an entire country over to terrorists.

“President Biden must immediately focus all efforts on making sure there is a plan to safely extract all American service members and civilians still remaining in Afghanistan. He also owes the American public an answer on what he plans to do to make sure the region doesn’t turn into a breeding ground for more violent extremism that will lead to large-scale global attacks of terrorism.”

FROM REP. MCCAUL

“I am shocked and extremely concerned by reports of President Biden’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan by September. This will mean we are not leaving a residual force to address the counterterrorism threats emanating from Afghanistan, abandoning our Afghan partners during critical peace negotiations, and allowing the Taliban a total victory despite their failure to fulfill their commitments under our agreement. This premature withdrawal shows a complete disregard for the realities on the ground, and will not only put Afghans at risk, but endanger the lives of U.S. citizens at home and abroad. I have urgently requested details on this decision and strongly urge the President to reconsider.”

FROM REP. ROGERS:

“For months, I have pressed President Biden for a plan to avoid the very situation that is now happening in Afghanistan. Now, American lives are at risk because President Biden still doesn’t have a plan. Weeks ago, President Biden promised the American people that we would not have a Saigon moment in Afghanistan – Now, we are watching President Biden’s Saigon moment unfold before us.

“The turmoil happening in Afghanistan is a surprise to no one. Unfortunately, I believe the worst is yet to come.  

“Our allies are watching as Afghanistan rapidly deteriorates and President Biden still claims he does not regret his unconditional withdrawal. Make no mistake, the consequences of President Biden’s haphazard withdrawal will be felt for decades.

 “All we needed was a plan to avoid this very moment. Mr. President, where is the plan?”

Biden’s Push For Price Control Will Lead To Less Innovation And Fewer Cures

Make no mistake about it, President Biden and Speaker Pelosi’s “negotiation” is nothing more than a Socialist price control scheme that will lead to less innovation, fewer cures, and no hope for those suffering from debilitating diseases. This disastrous policy is a key part of the Democrats’ reckless tax and spending spree legislation that will be before the House in the coming weeks. 

THE FACTS ABOUT SOCIALIST PRICE CONTROL SCHEMES LIKE SPEAKER PELOSI’S H.R. 3:

  • Would devalue the lives of and discriminate against people with disabilities and those with chronic illnesses and preexisting conditions. 
  • Could lead to as many as 100 fewer drugs entering the United States market over the next decade. 
  • Price controls on prescription drugs are also a threat to national security.  

It’s simple: We must say NO to socialist price control schemes and protect American innovation for lifesaving cures and treatments.

Fortunately for the American people, there is a bipartisan plan that would lower prescription drugs’ costs and protect American innovation for lifesaving cures and treatments.

Key Inflation Indicator Soared To A Record High In July

President Biden and House Democrats’ out-of-control spending caused a key inflation indicator to reach a new record high in July

The Producer Price Inflation (PPI) index rose 7.8% over the last 12 months This is a new record high since the Bureau of Labor Statistics first began calculating the index in November 2010.

BIDEN’S INFLATION BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • Inflation has increased every month since Joe Biden became President. 
  • Americans are now also earning less than they did last year because of inflation.
  • The PPI index hit a record high in July.
  • The Consumer-Price Index (CPI) rose 5.4% in July from a year earlier, holding at a 13-year high over the 12-month period.
    • This matches the CPI’s largest jump since right before the financial crash in August 2008.
  • Americans are paying more for just about everything: 
    • Car rentals are UP 73.5% 
    • Gas is UP 41.8%
    • Hotels are UP 24.1%
    • Airfare is UP 19%
    • Steaks are UP 10.7%
    • Fish is UP 8.5%
    • Sports equipment is UP 7.2%

It’s simple: Inflation is taxation. While Americans are making less, they are paying more for just about everything, and President Biden’s out-of-control spending is the reason why. 

Biden’s Border Crisis Is LITERALLY Off The Charts

President Biden’s Border Crisis is so bad it’s now off the chart. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 212,672 border apprehensions at the southern border in July. That is a 420% increase from last July

BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • Border Patrol stopped 212,672 illegal immigrants in July.
    • This is a 420% increase from last July. 
  • That’s the HIGHEST number in 21 years. 
  • July was the 5th straight month of 170K+ apprehensions.
  • There have been over 1 MILLION illegal crossings at the southwest border since President Biden took office. 
    • That’s a higher total than any year since 2006.
