Joe Biden to Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani: Lie to the World for Me

According to Reuters, Joe Biden pressured another world leader in a phone call to do something much worse than investigate a political opponent. Cue the chorus for impeachment, right? Fat chance.

Here’s a different way to look at his lying—Joe Biden may be a fading and angry shell of his former self, but the old man can still spin.

Sadly, spinning is one thing—trying to get a puppet president to lie to the world about your abject failure of a pull-out from an “endless war” is quite another. In fact, it’s criminal and worthy of a real impeachment.

Here’s the key part of the transcript:

BIDEN: Mr. President. Joe Biden.

GHANI: Of course, Mr. President, such a pleasure to hear your voice.

BIDEN: You know, I am a moment late. But I mean it sincerely. Hey look, I want to make it clear that I am not a military man any more than you are, but I have been meeting with our Pentagon folks, and our national security people, as you have with ours and yours, and as you know and I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things aren’t going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. And there’s a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.

Translation: Lie to the world for me.

Selective outrage

Tragically, Joe Biden’s attempt to pressure now former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani to lie about the conditions in Afghanistan led to the deaths of many Afghan civilians and 13 American service members.

Where’s the outrage, Speaker Pelosi? Why aren’t you unleashing your bulgy-eyed passive aggressive attack dog, Sheriff Schiff? Where’s the impeachment investigation to “save our democracy,” partisan media members?

It’s nowhere. Truth and transparency are lost virtues for a politically-driven media, ruling party and career politician president. Crusaders and power-mongers don’t give one whit about truth.

Morality is movable and moral compasses are for chumps, right, Joe? You’ve been lying all your life. Why stop now? Why not get others to lie for you? You’re honest about one thing—you’re no military man.

Lifetime liar

Captain Decency, back when he was ‘Ol Blue Collar Joe, lied about his class ranking, scholarship status and a nonexistent double major.  He’s also admitted to plagiary in some of his speeches while campaigning and in debates. 

Did Biden lie about his fitness for combat to dodge the Vietnam draft? After numerous deferments, high school football player Joe Biden received a “1-Y” classification for asthma in April 1968 that protected him from being drafted, except in cases of national emergency.

Asthma? Biden’s asthma didn’t keep him from running all over the field and catching touchdowns as a star receiver. Did Captain Decency “project a different picture” regarding his fitness for service “whether it is true or not.”

Maybe Blue-collar Joe relied on his blue blood connections to get a doctor to sign off on a classification that didn’t apply to him.

We don’t know and will never know, but we do know this—President Joe Biden pressured now former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani to lie to the world about rapidly deteriorating conditions in his country. And Biden did so to cover for his abysmal failure in trusting untrustworthy Afghan forces.

Yet again, Joe blew it. Ashraf Ghani’s response to Biden’s pressure was to flee his country. In doing so, Ghani demonstrated more honesty than his American master. He knew the jig was up and fled for his life while Biden absurdly and arrogantly continues to claim victory in the face of utter failure.

No decency

To make matters worse, while presiding over the “dignified transfer” of the remains of the 13 service members at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, his home state, the empathizer-in-chief failed again. While ham-handedly attempting to connect with newly-minted Gold Star families, Joe tried to assuage their grief by talking about the death of his son, Beau.

Clearly, Captain Decency doesn’t realize that empathy and connection happens when you dwell on others’ grief, not your own. His grief over his son’s death is not what freshly grieving families want to hear. Especially those who blame you for their loved ones’ deaths.

How does Joe not get this? How can he not know that checking his watch makes it look like he doesn’t care enough. It would be easy to blame Biden’s behavior on a slipping mental state, but his phone call to Ghani demonstrates a focused attempt to deceive and cover up. Is he losing it, or is he just another lying politician? I say both.

Perhaps Joe Biden’s political “skills” will be the last to fail him. His ability to read teleprompters, issue forceful defenses of his failed leadership, and lie through his veneers will remain to the bitter end.

One thing’s for sure, Captain Decency is far from decent. This persona is a myth. It always was.

Media partisans, this is on you. Your propping and protection of your chosen candidate gave us a typical lying politician for a president, not a leader.

Meet the Man Who Has Memorized Every Soldier Killed in Afghanistan

Ron White decided to memorize every single US service member killed in Afghanistan.

Published

on

Ron White is a former naval intelligence officer. He also happens to be a two-time US memory champion. Yes, they actually hold championships for memory. You can hand Ron a completely randomly shuffled deck of 52 cards and after he looks at them for one minute, he can set them back down on the table and tell you the order of those cards both frontwards and backwards. That’s the kind of memory he has. As the founder of America’s Memory (check him out here), Ron decided to use that memory to honor our fallen heroes. Having served in Afghanistan himself, Ron decided to memorize every single US service member killed in Afghanistan. His story and his dedication to remembering his fallen brothers and sisters is incredible and he tells us all about it on the latest episode of the American Freedom Tour Podcast (which you can subscribe to here).

Biden is Soft on Putin; Trump was Tough on Putin

Trump enacted more than 50 sanctions or policy actions on Russia, many being severe

Published

on

Joe Biden thoroughly fears Vladimir Putin, and so Ukraine and the world suffers. Donald Trump did not fear Putin, and so Russia did not gain one extra inch of Ukrainian territory from 2017 to 2020.

Leftist Lies

In May 2017, the ultra-obnoxious late night TV show host Stephen Colbert apparently delighted his legions of ignorant fans by repugnantly joking that, “The only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.” Amazingly, Colbert is still singing the same tune.

Along with Colbert, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and the ‘mainstream’ media continue their non-stop, massive lies about Donald Trump being ‘soft’ on Russia. On June 28, 2020 Pelosi blabbed, “I don’t know what the Russians have on the president,” referring to the “Russian bounty”’ hoax.

The media machine fervently wants you to believe that Russia/Putin “have something on Trump,” which impeded him from taking aggressive action to curtail Putin’s excesses. Concurrently, no U.S. president in recent history was tougher on Russia than Donald Trump.

Let’s Look at the Record

What did President Trump do in relation to Russia during his time in office? Here are only a handful of examples:

* Imposed sanctions on Russian companies and Russian entities, blocking at least $3 billion worth of deals from going into Russian coffers.

* Placed harsh economic restrictions on a group of Russian oligarchs which effectively puts more pressure on Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader has illegally amassed enormous wealth – exceeding $25 billion – in the last two decades, but he can’t hold all that wealth in his own name, so he appointed oligarch cronies to be his trustees. Putting his oligarchs on sanctions hurts Putin big time.

* Levied considerable financial sanctions and travel restrictions on 50-plus individuals who have been accused of human-rights abuses and corruption under both the Magnitsky Act and the Global Magnitsky Act.

* Criticized NATO allies for not spending enough on defense (and was accused by the lamestream media of encouraging Russia to test alliance resolve). NATO allies, however, have taken steps to pay more, and NATO appears stronger than before, which is decidedly not the outcome Putin wanted.

* Authorized the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the U.S. in the wake of nerve agent attack on British soil, allegedly at the hands of the Kremlin.

* Approved the export of lethal weapons, including American-made Javelin antitank missiles, to help Ukraine shore up its eastern defenses against separatists backed by Moscow. More defense cooperation with Ukraine, as well as weapons sales are on the near horizon.

* Killed more than 200 Russian soldiers in Syria – U.S. troops are present as in Syria as much to limit Russian and Iranian influence on the country’s future as to fight the remnants of the Islamic State.

* Facilitated U.S. sales of more coal to energy-strapped Ukraine, while weakening Russia’s hold on oil exports.

* Ramped up militarily to pressure the Russian Federation as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Defense Secretary work to strengthen alliances and military cooperation with Baltic states that share borders with Russia.

* Offered a proposal to Poland to host a permanent contingent of U.S. troops, in the way that Germany and Italy have done since World War II, to help secure Poland’s 180-mile long border with Russia.

* Discussed with Ukraine’s president the enhancement of cooperation in security and defense sectors, and the importance of keeping tight sanctions on Russia – to Putin a most unwelcome development.

* Pressured Germany over its status as the largest buyer of Russian natural gas, and as a huge buyer of Russia coal and mineral oil.

* Sanctioned four Russian entities and seven individuals in response to a 2018 attempt to interfere in U.S. midterm elections, including Russian financier Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a wealthy loyalist nicknamed “Putin’s chef” who has his mitts in many pies.

* Suspended its obligations under the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty because Russia was not complying with it.

No Kid Gloves

In all, as a Brookings Institute analysis revealed, the Trump administration enacted more than 50 sanctions or policy actions on Russia, many being severe, from May 15, 2017 – four months after Trump took office – to 2020. Even half of what Trump had done is massive and thoroughly refutes the orchestrated, perpetual Democrat lies about Trump being soft on Russia and Trump somehow colluding with Russia.

The New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Left, in general, would much prefer that you remain ignorant about these actions. Indeed, they make their living from it.
