DC knew Biden would botch Afghanistan

All of Washington wanted to get rid of the president. On this Republican and Democrat leaders agreed. They whipped up a fake scandal, greased the skids for an impeachment, and got the press to convince the public the president must be replaced.

His replacement was a reliably lame congressional lifer.

I could be talking about Nixon/Ford or Trump/Biden.

It is the same deal.

This is what Washington wanted. Instead of a competent executive whom the people backed, they wanted an old hack in the Oval Office. That he was ill-prepared or ill-suited for the job mattered not.

Alan Steinberg wrote on June 10, 2020, "Our nation presently, as in 1974, is badly in need of a healer who can bind up our nation’s wounds.  The divisions in the Watergate downfall of Republican President Richard Nixon in 1974 were not nearly as acute as those of the present; they were strictly political, as opposed to the current interracial conflict that is rending the social fabric of our nation.

"It is as if we are presently experiencing four major years of national crisis simultaneously: 1918 (the year of the last global Pandemic), 1929 (year of the stock market crash, signaling the onset of the Great Depression), 1968 ( year of racial and anti-Vietnam War civil unrest), and 1974 (year of revelation of major presidential misconduct).

"On both occasions, our nation has been badly in need of a healer.  Most people have forgotten that at the beginning of 1973, our Vice-President was the horrifically corrupt, disgracefully anti-Semitic Spiro Agnew.  Had he been Vice President in August, 1974 at the time of the resignation of President Nixon, the divisions would have worsened.

"America was saved, however."

And what did we get from the Sainted Jerry Ford?

Inflation and the Fall of Saigon.

But Ford was a puppet of Official Washington. He is remembered fondly while Nixon, who engineered a graceful end to the Vietnam war, still is shunned. 

Biden is Ford II, just as Kabul is Saigon II. The Deep State and Congress wanted an occupant in the White House, not a president because they feared an end to their trillion-dollar game of needless wars, dependency on Red China, and getting cheap labor, votes, drugs, and sex toys (girls and boys) from Mexico and Central America.

They impeached President Trump twice, ruined the economy, unleashed a pandemic panic, and harvested ballots from the graveyards and nursing homes. Still they did not have the votes to defeat Trump on election night. It is incredible.

The price for sabotaging his presidency (Republicans stuck him with a homeland security secretary who opposed the wall) and disposing of him is being paid by others at the supermarket and in Afghanistan.

Roger Kimball wrote, "Afghanistan and the Cost of Having a ‘Normal’ President." His was a dump on the Fake Conservatives.

He said, "I do wonder whether such people, who helped put Biden in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue deserve to be heard on the question of his liabilities. I offer that for future consideration: should those who helped put Biden in office now deserve a hearing when they are complaining about his performance?

"I confess that I do not listen to them." 

None of us do. Not even their wives.

We should have stopped listening to them when they foisted Jerry Ford upon us. He was incompetent just like Biden, although far less crooked. Heck, Rod Blagojevich was not as crooked.

Don't get me wrong. Most Americans tired of Afghanistan and want to leave. President Trump left Biden with a pretty good way out.

Which Biden rejected.

John Ellis wrote, "What do you suppose the chances are that Secretary of State Anthony Blinken thinks the U.S. abandonment of Afghanistan — the 'handover to the Taliban,' as Former U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker put it the other day — is a good idea? None would be my guess.

"What do you suppose the chances are that you could find more than 5 people at the Pentagon, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and the National Security Council who think the handover is a good idea? My guess would be none as well.

"Handing over Afghanistan to the Taliban is President Biden’s idea, if that’s the right word, and his alone. It is terrible policy, on any number of levels. 'Worse than a crime, a mistake' (Talleyrand’s phrase) describes it best."

Indeed, Kane at Citizen Free Press reported that Blinken said on CNN, "Biden was wrong."

Even Mike Allen, the co-founder of the liberal Axios, blasted Biden, writing, "Rarely has an American president's predictions been so wrong, so fast, so convincingly as President Biden on Afghanistan. Usually military operations and diplomacy are long; the outcomes, foggy. Not here."

But you know what?

Those tears are from crocodiles and other denizens of swamps because no one is calling for Biden's removal because no one in DC cares about the country any more. It is all about power and getting their kids in the right schools, getting tax breaks for their donors, and pocketing a share of whatever money Chairman Xi is handing out. 

Obama said, "Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fuck things up."

That was what Official Washington was counting on.

President Trump called for Biden's resignation over the war. I fully agree.

    2. Which is why Biden won't be asked to leave. She is incompetent, and all of DC knows it. But you cannot have her as the first black female president - because everyone knows it will be a train wreck. I think everyone already knows DeSantis will be the next president, because Biden is inept, and Harris is worse. And they all know it.

    3. The democrats need to get moving. They will Agnew Hoeis and name a VP who they think has more skills - Stacy Abrams?

      Delete
    4. Abrams is a disaster. Maybe Mayor Bootie-Judge?

      If the CA recall goes the right way, Newsom will be at loose-ends, so maybe plug him in as VP. He is a CA hot-house plant like Horizontal, no real retail political skills, so he'd wipe out just like Horizontal.

      If the CA recall goes the wrong way, they could appoint Handy-Andy Cuomo as VP, since he's at loose-ends right now, too.

      One off-the-wall suggestion I've heard is Pence for replacement VP. Rationale being if the Dims proposed him, all the RINOs would vote for him. But then the Dims would be betting on Biden actually making it all the way to 2024.

    1. The picture of the evac from our Saigon embassy was some years after we had turned the fighting over to the South Vietnamese and our troops had been withdrawn in an orderly manner.
      When the Democrats cut off money to the government and President Ford did not full fill the promise to provide air support, the Vietnamese resistance collapsed.
      In June 1969 we started Vietnamisation which ended in March 1973 with a cease fire with North Vietnam. The evac was in April 1975. The North Vietnamese attacked in force and some South Vietnamese units ran out of ammo.
      Our enemies watch our news and when congress and the president abandoned South Vietnam, the North knew what to do. They did exactly what I would have done had I been them.

  7. Don, I think you're being a bit harsh on President Ford. No matter who or what was to blame in '74, the Dems held the whip hand and called the tune. Ford stepped up and shepherded the party through the remainder of Nixon's term. That's all he was required to do, as he assumed office without benefit of election. I do recall in the '90's, walking into Norshipco in Portsmouth, Va. and being a bit surprised to see a ship in the first pier one encounters when walking through the main gate. It was the Mayaguez. The only other person in the repair business I was working at, that knew the significance of the ship was my boss. In any case a comparison of President Ford to President Joke Biteme does a disservice to both men I think; unwarrantedly elevating the vegetable and needlessly denigrating a reasonably decent Republican president.

  8. I actually disagree with you, Don, that Biden is a bumbling fool. I think he is in the throes of dementia, and getting worse every day. He's gone into hiding during the current debacle because the handlers, run by Obama and Susan Rice, are afraid to let him talk about it in public.

  13. Primitive Islam defeats SJW Progressivism.

    This defeat of the progressive U.S. is a clear sign of the weakness of the whole SJW house of cards. When primitive Islam defeats the U.S. this easily, our side, that still adheres to the Western values, will defeat the SJW-led rotten system even more easily than the Taliban did. In the near future, all the multicultural activists in all the presidential palaces will be escaping like rats, just like the puppet government of Afghanistan is escaping today.

  18. Not buying any of it.

    A-stan was on nobody's front burner. Even Trump's way out didn't raise a howl.

    And Jerry Ford didn't lose Saigon. People like Jack Javits and George McGovern did. Don makes the mistake of military bureaucracy of blaming who's in charge rather than who's responsible.

    Who's responsible for this is still up for grabs. It may be FICUS, more likely not.

    The reason they picked him has little, if anything to do with A-stan. They wanted an old white man who would front for their infrastructure and vaxxing and the rest here.

    A-stan is small potatoes, except for all the Deep State pals who were making money off the contracts.

    The fact things went so badly so quickly, I think, has the Lefties scared people will realize the whole crowd is a pack of idiots and will demand a change.

    And Chlamydia ain't the change.

  19. It’s unlikely Biden will resign or be impeached, but it is almost a certainty that this has effectively ended his presidency. Anyone attached to his administration will be tainted forever and it’s even possible that the legacy media will suffer further erosion after their sycophantic coverage of President Magoo.

  20. I think we need to step back and understand that tho the US failed to keep it's word, it's the Afghan people who have lost their country and that's not the fault of the US.

    As in other Islamic countries who after being offered democracy have turned their backs and reverted to the oppressive Islam of the 7th century they've refused the opportunity.

    If we truly believe in a peoples/nations right to decide their own fate then we should recognize that their decisions may not be what we would wish.

    We should remove ourselves from all of these countries and let the chips fall where they may. We have enough problems of our own and may find ourselves fighting for democracy (well representational democracy) soon.

  23. Enter the CCP. Afghanistan shares a tiny bit of border with China, an opening to the Persian Gulf through Afghanistan (soon to be a CCP economic partner through the Belt and Road Initiative) and Iran (already a CCP economic partner). The Taliban might be ruthless and battle hardened but they are also an organized crime organization - 'let's see the color of your Yuan, Xi, and we'll show you a protected road and rail transit route through our 'hood'. Hey, Death To America, riiiight?' US consumer dollars put to use to pay off Taliban crooks, and China now has a port in the center of US foreign oil supply. Simple.
