McConnell Defends Joe Biden From Republican Impeachment Cries

If abandoning Americans in a nation run by literal terrorists isn’t an impeachable offense, then what is?

The US troops withdrawal from Afghanistan was an unmitigated disaster, undoubtedly, and that’s putting it lightly, and with some sort of air of authority over how it will be remembered.  The truth is, it’s not over yet.  There are still hundreds of Americans and thousands of our Afghan allies who were unable to evacuate by the Taliban’s August 31st deadline, and who now must navigate a nation ruled by a terror organization with a chip on their shoulder against America in order to get back home.

The outcome of President Joe Biden’s acceleration of the drawdown has been largely criticized as a main reason why the Taliban were so swift to reconquer the country, and it has prompted a number of calls for his impeachment.

That’s just not something that Mitch McConnell can get behind, however.

“The president is not going to be removed from office. There’s a Democratic House, a narrowly Democratic Senate,” McConnell said when asked if he supports impeachment, per the Hill. “There isn’t going to be an impeachment.” Other Republican senators, including Sens. Marsha Blackburn and Lindsey Graham, have said Biden should either resign or face impeachment over the chaotic exit from Afghanistan, reports CNN.

The Senate Minority Leader had another idea:

McConnell, however, looked ahead to next year’s midterm election, when the Democrats could lose their very slender majorities in the House and Senate Republicans. “The report card you get is every two years,” McConnell said. “I think the way these behaviors get adjusted in this country is at the ballot box.” He added: “Typically there is some buyer’s remorse.”

Lee Greenwood Booted from Arts Council by Biden Administration

What?!

on

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

on

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.
