The Blood On Joe Biden’s Hands

The best-case scenario under Joe Biden’s Afghanistan plan was the United States running away from Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble fast enough to avoid offending troglodytes who pass the time waiting till they find a 12-year-old girl to marry by sexually violating even younger boys. Let that sink in. Now there are 13 Americans dead among 170 slaughtered by terrorists. But at least there are no mean tweets, right? Unfortunately, there aren’t any coherent actions or words either. Joe Biden has blood on his hands he can’t ever wash off.

The attack came a day after a report that the White House was of the firm belief that they deserved praise for their handling of a situation their incompetence created. Politico reported, “The president and his team have taken it on the chin for the past week. Now, amid a massive evacuation effort, they want kudos too.” Even before the attack, that was like OJ demanding people celebrate him for all the days he didn’t cut people’s heads off. 

This is an unbelievable situation for the world’s only remaining superpower. A few months ago, I would have been less surprised to discover Joe Biden was actually a Taliban sleeper agent than he was so incompetent that he’d find a way to arm a terrorist state, look like a coward doing it, and run away from protecting the lives of Americans after they’d been attacked. 

To be sure, the United States has had some moments of embarrassment in our 245 years – the Bay of Pigs, Barack Obama’s apology tour, Jimmy Carter’s administration – but to run from this band of unshowered child molesters while ceding them some of the most advanced weaponry the world has ever known as the blood of our bravest is still sinking into the earth is a new low. Publicly demanding pats on the back in the process is the cherry on top of the cherry that was already on top. 

I suppose we should be grateful Joe Biden hasn’t sent them pallets of cash like the Obama/Biden administration did with Iran. Well, at least not yet or that we know of. 

The problem with this level of incompetence is it’s impossible to know when they’re done making things worse. When people continually find new and creative ways to disgrace themselves, there is no “Thank God that’s over” moment because it never ends. It can’t. 

Bill Clinton was a goofy womanizer with an embarrassing past most people thought he would put behind him once he assumed the office. After all, what kind of moron would think you could get away with philandering while in the White House? Just because he’d met JFK didn’t make him JFK; even Stevie Wonder could see the media landscape had changed. Yet, one intern’s underwear flash and it was game on. He counted on his significant subordinate to be able to keep her mouth shut about his getting her to not keep her mouth shut. 

Smart people act dumb all the time because everyone has dumb in them somewhere. Dumb people can’t act smart, no matter what, because all they have is dumb. 

Joe Biden has always been dumb. Having been in elected office his whole life is not a sign of intelligence, it’s a sign of being personable when it matters and having an ability to pander.

Some people are leaders, natural born. They inspire people to follow them through their words and actions. Other people can read a room and tell them exactly what they want to hear, jump out in front of a parade and act like they’ve been leading it the whole time. Joe Biden’s career has been following waves to whatever beach they crash on, then setting off to find the next one. He’s a man with no beliefs. That’s how he can take a speech after the murder of 13 Americans and make it about his son who died of brain cancer. 

Biden, we are told, is a “devout Catholic.” He pretended to struggle with abortion, claiming to oppose it personally, but not wanting to impose his personal beliefs on others through the law. That was the “safe” opinion among Democrats. Now it’s not. Now, taxpayer-funded abortion on demand is, so that’s where Biden is too. Not many people, near the end of their lives, flip on deeply held beliefs that are a matter of personal faith…unless they were lying before.

Joe Biden is a bad leader; he’s a dumb man with no core beliefs and wild ambition. His instincts have always been wrong, but he has one of the most dangerous combinations of characteristics you should never have in a leader: ignorance and arrogance. He doesn’t know what he doesn’t know, and you can’t tell him anything contrary to what he believes because he thinks he knows. 

He wanted out of Afghanistan by August 31st, period. He gave his “word as a Biden,” or something. Facts weren’t going to change that, circumstances on the ground and the deaths of Americans clearly don’t matter either. And he and his army of flying monkeys want kudos for that? Hell no.
