Afghan Debacle Causes Biden Approval Rating to Sink Again

It seems as though Biden’s numbers are on a slippery slope.

Published

There are plenty of ways in which American presidents have disappointed their constituents, but few are as serious and traumatic as the stunt that Joe Biden just pulled.

The Commander in Chief’s disastrous decision to expedite the US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the subsequent conquering of the country by the Taliban terror organization, has now led to an unforgivable sin:  Our nation was forced to leave the region before all of the Americans had been evacuated.  This means that there are hundreds of US citizens, some of them just children, who’ve been abandoned by their nation.

And, predictably, the nation was not enthused by these developments. 

Amid the chaos of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, President Biden’s approval rating slid to just 43% in the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.

That is down 6 percentage points from a survey conducted in July and the lowest mark for Biden in the poll since taking office. The decline is principally due to independents — just 36% of them approve of the job he’s doing, a 10-point drop.

That a majority of independents now disapprove of his performance is bad news for Biden and Democrats. They’re a key swing group, one Biden won in 2020 but who now think he’s off track.

The news comes just days after a similarly poor performance was outlined via a separate set of polls, and the combined criticisms are beginning to turn to calls for action among some Republicans.

Barr and Trump Have ‘Nonexistent’ Relationship as Former AG Squeals to J6 Committee

Uh oh…

Published

on

As the January 6th committee continues to run down its arbitrary list of people who just happened to be anywhere near Donald Trump at any point leading up to the attempted insurrection at the Capitol, new details are coming to light regarding the former President’s personal relationships.

The committee, which is barely trying to hide its hopes of affecting the outcomes of the 2022 and 2024 election, has been spraying subpoenas all over Washington DC in recent weeks.  Their hope appears to be that something will stick, or someone will flip, allowing them to demonize Donald Trump before the coming midterms.  This will give Democrats the ammunition they need to remain competitive in that election.

This week, as former Attorney General Bill Barr continues to cooperate with the committee, a stunning revelation about his relationship with the former President has come to light.

If Donald Trump is hoping for any help during this time of intensifying investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, he can no longer count on his former attorney general, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman warned Monday.

Asked about any remaining loyalty William Barr may have to his former boss, Haberman told Anderson Cooper on CNN: “They haven’t had a relationship in quite some time. Their relationship is nonexistent.”

One group the former attorney general does have a relationship with is the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot. Barr has been cooperating with the probe.

And that’s not all:

There were “things they agreed on. But there were a number of things they didn’t agree on over time. That began, frankly, long before Election Day,” Haberman added.

Barr, who blasted the former president’s inaction during the riot, has been “very, very clear on where he stands on Trump,” Haberman said. “That’s not something, as we know, that the former president takes very well to.”

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who interviewed Barr for his book “Betrayal,” called him a former “ultimate Trump loyalist.” That makes his “potential testimony” even “more powerful,” Karl warned.

He noted that Barr told him he looked carefully into every claim of 2020 presidential election fraud and determined they were “all B.S,” said Karl.

One can only imagine that this is why the committee is so interested in Barr, but refused to seat a number of Trump-loyal GOP lawmakers who wished to participate in the probe:  They are seeking only to reiterate their preconceived notions about the case.
