Lindsey Graham Torches State Department Over Afghanistan Disaster

Lindsey Graham is NOT playing around anymore.

None of this is okay.  There is no silver lining and no bright side, and it’s highly doubtful that greener grass exists within seven ZIP codes of this situation.

No, the Biden administration’s handling of the American troop withdrawal from Afghanistan is wholly and unequivocally unacceptable, and has fallen far below the standard that our nation should be holding itself to.  We cannot be a bastion of freedom in this world when we simply step out of the way and allow Taliban terrorists to institute their extremist ideology on a national level.

And it’s because of these failures that Senator Lindsey Graham is looking for heads to roll.

The South Carolina senator took aim at Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman’s performance during Wednesday’s press conference, saying he couldn’t “believe” his ears when Sherman “went through all of her efforts to improve the lives of Afghan women going back to 1997 and now believes that those words matter.”

“The Biden Administration has abandoned Afghan women!” Graham tweeted. “The fate that awaits Afghan women, at the hands of the Taliban, is a direct result of the Biden Administration’s failure to adequately plan for an ill-conceived withdrawal.”

And then…

Graham called Sherman’s words touting “how much she cares for Afghan women” amid the controversy surrounding the Biden administration for their botched troop withdrawal “beyond shameless” and said it was time for a shake-up at the Department of State.

“The best thing that can happen for Afghan women is if those in charge of this debacle at the State Department resign and be replaced by more competent individuals,” Graham tweeted.

The situation in Afghanistan is turning unfathomable, and has only been exacerbated by the Biden administration’s unsatisfactory response, which has not only taken several days to materialize, but was wholly unconvincing at best once it did arrive.

Lee Greenwood Booted from Arts Council by Biden Administration

What?!

If there is one thing that the Biden administration is superb at, it’s putting its foot right in its mouth.

Maybe this was to be expected.  Biden is, after all, the most gaffe-prone President that our nation has ever seen.  But the sheer ignorance the team maintains for PR issues is still astounding, and this week was no exception.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday removed country music singer/songwriter Lee Greenwood from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Greenwood was first appointed by President George W Bush in 2008. Greenwood was reappointed to six-year terms by both Presidents Barack Obama and Donald J Trump.

“You know, it’s a six-year appointment and I was appointed by George W. Bush 43,” Greenwood told Fox and Friends. “So I served under his term. Also, President Obama’s term. Of course, President Trump’s term.”

Greenwood was shocked by the move.

The singer’s most renowned hit was “God Bless The USA”, and was a feature of a great many of Donald Trump’s political rallies, making this move by the Biden administration appear terribly petty.

But, for a White House that appears to be completely unaware of their own image, why would we expect anything different?

Taliban Will Bring Back Amputations and Executions as Punishment

This is the Biden legacy in Afghanistan at work. 

Published

In a lame attempt to soften the blow of bungling the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the Biden White House began peddling a downright offensive storyline in which this new Taliban would operate in a much more benevolent way than they did during their first reign in the 1990’s.

This appeared to be some sort of consolation prize in the eyes of the administration.  Hey, we really screwed the pooch on this one…at least they said they’ll be nicer.

Of course, it only took a few weeks for this charade to go belly-up, and now the Taliban appears to be back to their old tricks.

One of the founders of the Taliban and the chief enforcer of its harsh interpretation of Islamic law when they last ruled Afghanistan said the hard-line movement will once again carry out executions and amputations of hands, though perhaps not in public.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi dismissed outrage over the Taliban’s executions in the past, which sometimes took place in front of crowds at a stadium, and he warned the world against interfering with Afghanistan’s new rulers.

There was no mistaking the intent.

“Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Turabi told The Associated Press, speaking in Kabul. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran.”

The Taliban had previously suggested that women refrain from leaving their homes, as their own soldiers weren’t well enough trained to keep from assaulting them.
