WASHINGTON, DC, Aug 16 — Nice going, Joe. In less than seven short months, you’ve managed to accomplish quite a bit.
For one thing, most recently, you disgraced the nation by handing Afghanistan over to the Taliban, rewarding them with tons of shiny new weaponry to play with, arms they can use to play havoc with our remaining troops, the people of Afghanistan, and their neighbors. Along the way, you have disrespected the lives and memories of American fighting men and women who lost their lives in Afghanistan over the past two decades.
And you may have triggered a whole new world war of terror.
And where were you when all of this was happening? It turns out you were at Camp David. When Senator Tom Cotton [R-AR] found out, he tweeted: “Why is Joe Biden in hiding? He should immediately address the nation and answer for the catastrophic situation in Afghanistan. Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis.”
The Taliban in Afghanistan gave refuge to perhaps the world’s most wanted enemy at the time — Osama Bin Laden. They aided and abetted him as his minions terrorized the civilized world. Perhaps you did not realize that the war our soldiers and those of our allies were fighting over there actually put an end to what was perhaps the unprecedented era of international terror the world has ever known.
Some are saying that what you have done has emboldened the Taliban and may have ushered in a new era of global terrorism– a second world war against international terrorism. You can bet that they are wasting no time harvesting their poppies as a way to pay for deadly intentions. That alone will be enough to pay for a new army of terrorists who may soon be targeting, yet again, innocent men, women, and children. Or maybe they can use the money to purchase airline tickets for flights they can use as guided missiles. Remember that?
Apologists for the president tried to compare the abandonment of Afghanistan with that of the American withdrawal of our troops from Viet Nam, forgetting the most important difference between the two: the terrorists. No matter how hard you seek to compare America’s retreat from Vietnam to what we did by abandoning Afghanistan, you can’t. That’s because the difference is that the Viet Cong were not threatening to continue fighting on our homeland, unconcerned about who they kill — including civilians of all ages.
As South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham put it, “It is only a matter of time until al-Qaeda reemerges in Afghanistan and presents a threat to the American homeland and western world. President Biden seems oblivious to the terrorist threats that will come from a Taliban-run Afghanistan.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, you thought the Afghan military would take care of miscreant Taliban assaults and that your advisors didn’t expect any pushback from the bad guys until sometime in the fall. “Instead, a carefully planned strategy carried out by the Taliban has produced swift battlefield advances, allowing insurgents to seize a succession of provincial capitals since Friday.”
Let’s change the subject; it must be uncomfortable for you. Let’s talk about money, specifically about the $3.5 trillion budget, better known as the invoice for the wants and desires of your progressive socialist cronies in Congress. Correction: it turns out that when all is said and done, the bill you’ll be handing over to the American people will be closer to $5 trillion.
Nice going, Joe. But then you have been a bit too cozy with the progressive socialists in your party, and that can be distracting, indeed. For example, your new budget contains enough leftist spending to embarrass even the most ardent member of the old Soviet Ministry of Finance. Not to worry, says the left-leaning contributors to the spending bill; let the capitalists pay for it.
Economist Larry Kudlow, in an interview over the weekend, said, “I don’t know how much taxes they’re going to ask. It’s going to be a minimum of $3 trillion in taxes, and the middle class is going to pay for that – virtually every nickel.” But, Kudlow added, when the Congressional Budget Office adds up the budget’s 10-year impact, the cost of the Biden budget will add up to a total of more than $5 Trillion. And, he pointed out, 70% of corporate taxes are paid by wage earners, people who make $50,000 to $200,000. Watch out all you capitalists out there.
It’s been a difficult presidency for you, we know. You have all those illegal immigrants knocking at our doors on the Southern border crossings. And then there is the out-of-control inflation Americans are facing under your leadership.
Yes, Mr. Biden, you’ve accomplished a lot between January and August. I’d love to see what happens next. Or do I?
