Joe Biden left the White House late last week to begin a two-week summer vacation in Delaware as multiple crises escalate in the U.S. and across the world.

Biden was forced to return to the White House on Monday to deliver a press conference on the situation in Afghanistan.

After giving his address, Biden headed back to Camp David and it’s unclear what he plans to do.

PRES. BIDEN JUST CONCLUDED HIS SPEECH ON AFGHANISTAN, TAKING NO QUESTIONS AFTERWARDS. THE WHITE HOUSE NOTES HE WILL NOW RETURN TO CAMP DAVID.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has slammed Biden for his handling for his mismanagement of the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which have descended into chaos over the weekend as Taliban forces seized much of the country and collapsed the Afghan government.

McCarthy is now calling for an investigation into Biden’s handling of the situation. 

McCarthy is now calling for investigations into Biden’s handling of the crisis and made his remarks late Sunday as Taliban forces moved to overrun Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul. 

Making his remarks on Punchbowl News, McCarthy called Biden’s decision to remove the totality of US troops from Afghanistan “a mistake that will haunt us for decades,” highlighting the president’s choice to select September 11 as the target date for total withdrawal from the country. 

McCarthy pointed out that it was also a mistake to withdraw US forces “during the Summer, when [the Taliban is] at their height.” 

The Hill reports that the Republican has indicated that he will be moving forward with investigations to probe the failures of the Biden administration and both US and allied intelligence that led to the debacle. He wants to know what the intelligence community knew in the weeks and months ahead of Afghanistan’s collapse. 

McCarthy’s remarks have been echoed by other top Republicans including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and former President Donald Trump, the latter who demanded Biden’s resignation over his policy failures and the crisis in Afghanistan. 

As the situation deteriorated in the region, the Pentagon announced it will be deploying up to 6,000 troops to assist with the evacuation of US personnel.

Conservative Brief reported on Monday that the Pentagon is planning to authorize the evacuation of upwards of 30,000 Afghans and relocate them to US military bases. 

“When I came to office, I inherited a deal cut by my predecessor—which he invited the Taliban to discuss at Camp David on the eve of 9/11 of 2019—that left the Taliban in the strongest position militarily since 2001 and imposed a May 1, 2021 deadline on US forces. Shortly before he left office, he also drew US forces down to a bare minimum of 2,500,” Biden stated of the situation.

“Therefore, when I became President, I faced a choice—follow through on the deal, with a brief extension to get our Forces and our allies’ Forces out safely, or ramp up our presence and send more American troops to fight once again in another country’s civil conflict,” he added. “I was the fourth President to preside over an American troop presence in Afghanistan—two Republicans, two Democrats. I would not, and will not, pass this war onto a fifth.”

Making matters worse, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is taking a break from her duties at the same time as the Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan.

Kamala Harris SLAMS Biden In New Book.. Implies His Administration Is Racist

Published

on

In New York Times Reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns’ new book  “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” the authors paint a negative picture of President Biden’s relationship with his Vice President, Kamala Harris.

The book, which is set to release soon, alleges that Harris was frustrated with Biden when he appointed her ‘Immigration Czar’, saying that she desired a more ‘softball’ assignment such as maintaining diplomatic relations with Nordic countries.

The book also claims that Biden’s ‘white inner circle’ looked down on Harris, implying that Biden and his top officials are racist.

Martin and Burns also claim that the now famous picture of Harris in black Converse sneakers that was featured on the cover of ‘Vogue’ was seen as ‘belittling’ by her office.

The Daily Mail Reports–

“Kamala Harris was not happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.

During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.

‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.

‘Excuse me,’ she said, ‘it’s the Northern Triangle — not immigration.”

The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.

‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.

‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.

BREAKING: Zelensky Claims That Biden Intentionally Provoked Putin In To Invading Ukraine In SHOCKING Interview

Published

on

Last month, Russia launched an invasion against Ukraine that has killed tens of thousands of people to date and brought mass destruction to almost every major Ukrainian city.

One of the primary reasons that Putin invaded Ukraine was his fear that the country was re-aligning with the West and could join NATO, further encircling Russia militarily and putting the hostile military alliance directly on his country’s western border.

Ukraine has had aspirations to join NATO since 2008 when it became a part of the alliance’s MAP program which would have put it on track to join at a later point.

According to President Zelensky, President Biden wanted him to pretend that there was a chance Ukraine could be admitted to NATO to antagonize Russia.

During the interview, Zelensky said that NATO and EU countries told him that Ukraine would not be admitted to either the European Union or NATO, but ‘publicly, the doors would remain open’. 

WATCH:

Its very likely that a public admission from EU and NATO countries that there was little interest in admitting Ukraine could have prevented an invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

Leaked diplomatic cables in 2008 more or less predicted the Russian invasion of Ukraine by explaining that NATO enlargement in to Ukraine or Georgia would be a ‘red line’ for Russia, yet the US and NATO countries have refused to give Russia reassurances that they would not admit Ukraine to NATO.

” Following a muted first reaction to Ukraine’s intent to seek a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) at the Bucharest summit, Foreign Minister Lavrov and other senior officials have reiterated strong opposition, stressing that Russia would view further eastward expansion as a potential military threat. NATO enlargement, particularly to Ukraine, remains “an emotional and neuralgic” issue for Russia, but strategic policy considerations also underlie strong opposition to NATO membership for Ukraine and Georgia. In Ukraine, these include fears that the issue could potentially split the country in two, leading to violence or even, some claim, civil war, which would force Russia to decide whether to intervene.” Said then U.S Ambassador to Russia William Burns.

Joe Biden: ‘I May Be Irish, But I’m not Stupid’

Published

President Joe Biden celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, joking about his Irish heritage during a speech on Capitol Hill.

“Father, before I begin — bless me, Father, for I’m about to sin,” he said as he began his speech by crossing himself and addressing the priest in the room. “I, well, I just want you to know, I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”

Biden was referring to his decision to marry his wife, Jill.

The president attended the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon hosted by Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Capitol Hill.

He appeared wistful by the spirit of the bipartisan event, expressing his desire for more events with both Republicans and Democrats.

“We should have more times like this where Democrats and Republicans get together, and we actually not only agree on one thing, but we remind ourselves we actually like each other,” he said, prompting laughter and applause.

The president delivered a rambling speech, recalling his Irish heritage and multiple sayings from members of his Irish family.

“My grandfather, Ambrose Finnegan, used to say — and I mean this — he’d say, ‘Joey, if you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough,’” Biden recalled.

“My dad’s expression was, ‘Family is the beginning, the middle, and the end,” he added afterward.

He also recalled a simple slogan from his mother.

“My mom’s expression, for real, was, ‘Joey, get up. Just get up. Get up,’” he recalled.

He also remembered another favorite saying from his mother.

“My mother’s expression, gotten from her grandfather, was, you know, ‘As long as you’re alive, you have an obligation to strive. And you’re not dead until you’ve seen the face of God.’

He focused on the importance of the Irish understanding of equality, quoting his dad.

“My dad’s: ‘No one is better than you, and you’re no better than anyone else,’” he recalled. “Not a joke.”

After his speech House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered an Irish toast to the president before he left, but not before he recalled another saying from his grandmother.

“Well, my grandmother had one. She said, ‘May those who love us, love us. And those who don’t, may they turn their ankle, so we know they’re coming by their limp,’” he grinned.
