Apparently, Biden now forgets common vocabulary words, such as success.
According to Webster, success is defined as “the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals. the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like. A performance or achievement that is marked by success, as by the attainment of honors: The play was an instant success.”
When Trump obliterated ISIS, that was a success. When Trump backed the Taliban into a corner they were too afraid to step out of, that was a success. However, I think the word Biden is looking for might be “clusterf*ck.” (Sorry, mom. Sometimes f words are necessary.)
Today, Biden demonstrated his extraordinary inability to act as a leader. First, by pointing the finger. Then, but pretending he accomplished something of merit. Age old tricks from a guy who’s been a Government leech for fifty years.
It Was Trump
Throughout this crisis, Biden made statements such as “the buck stops here,” and “I won’t blame others, I take full responsibility.” Only, the second the clock ran out, Biden shouted “it was Trump. Trump did it! Blame the orange man, because it wasn’t me.”
Fox News details Biden’s finger-pointing.
“Let me be clear,” Biden said. “Leaving August 31 is not due to an arbitrary deadline. It was designed to save American lives.”
Biden then shifted, saying his “predecessor signed an agreement with the Taliban to leave by May 1,” adding that by the time he took office in January, the Taliban “was in its strongest military position since 2001.”
“The previous administration said that if we stuck to the May 1 deadline they had signed on to leave by, the Taliban wouldn’t attack any American forces, but if we stayed, all bets were off,” Biden said.
“So we were left with a simple decision: Follow through on an agreement made by the last administration and leave, or say we weren’t leaving and commit another tens of thousands more troops going back to war,” Biden said. “That was the choice. The real choice—between leaving or escalating.”
“I was not going to extend this forever war, and I was not extending a forever exit,” he added, noting that the decision was “based on unanimous recommendations of my civilian and military advisers.”
As for the evacuation mission which began in Afghanistan on Aug. 14, Biden acknowledged that there are Americans who have been left behind, but claimed that his administration has been warning those individuals “as far back as March.”
Hmm. The way I read that is Trump warned Biden of the delicate situation. And Biden listened to his many advisers instead. But what do I know? I’m just a civilian who understands the president to be operation with either a traumatic brain injury, or a medical condition several limiting his thought processes.
What’s more unbelievable than Biden’s attempt to spread the blame to the Trump Administration is the fact that Biden actually believes he was a massive success.
The president touted one of the “biggest airlifts in history,” noting more than 120,000 individuals were airlifted to safety from Kabul, saying that “no nation has ever done anything like it in all of history,” calling the mission an “extraordinary success.”
The president described the rush to evacuate Americans and Afghan allies as a mission of “mercy.” But he also noted the terrible toll.
Twenty service members were wounded, Biden noted, and thirteen “heroes gave their lives.”
“We owe them and their families a debt of gratitude,” he said. “We can never repay. But we should never, ever, ever forget.”
He said their sacrifices helped accomplish an objective no other nation could fulfill.
“Only the U.S. had the capacity, the will, and the ability to do it, and we did it today,” Biden said, applauding the “bravery and selfless courage” of U.S. military, diplomats and intelligence professionals.
“My fellow Americans, the war in Afghanistan is now over,” Biden said, saying he is the “fourth president to face the issue of whether and when to end this war.”
“When I was running for president, I made a commitment to the American people that I would end this war,” Biden said. “Today, I honored that. It was time to be honest with the American people again.”
Calling Joe Biden honest is like calling JFK a Jew. During his comments, Biden actually said, “”As we close 20 years of war and strife and pain and sacrifice, it’s time to look to the future, not the past. To the future, that safer future, that more secure future.”
I guess he’s what they call blissfully ignorant. As I pointed out earlier: “Virtually every statement Biden made regarding the Taliban, our exit strategy, and the logistics between the two is completely fabricated. Not one ounce of truth can be found, starting with the president’s earlies assertions. According to Biden, this pull-out would occur in an organized, orderly, and even peaceful fashion.” Instead, “Americans and Afghan allies alike were left scrambling to enter the Kabul airport for evacuation, navigating Taliban checkpoints and enduring beatings from Taliban fighters. An ISIS-K suicide bombing outside the airport killed 13 American service members and dozens of Afghans.”
Here are a few more Biden lies:
- The Taliban can be trusted.
- They are not angry with America.
- Americans had safe access to the airport and plenty of time to get out.
- We won’t leave a single American or ally behind.
- No one saw this disaster coming.
- The Administration planned for every contingency.
But here’s the REAL truth:
The Taliban is going door-to-door executing the Afghanis who worked with us over the past two decades. It’s a blood bath. Millions of women and little girls now must prepare for the rape and torture ahead. Our NATO allies no longer trust us. And we should prepare for the war to make it’s way to our homeland, as the Taliban seeks revenge.
If that’s what you call success, then by all means, Biden is clearly “The Man!”
