How about Trumps promise to pull us out of Afghanistan and his promise that Mexico would pay for the mythical wall that was not built while he was President?

Paul Emery


Link to Trump quote Oct 7, 2020:

On Wednesday evening, just a few hours before the vice presidential debate, Trump wrote on Twitter that “we should have the small remaining number of our brave men and women serving in Afghanistan home by Christmas.”

PaulE 1159am - Well, it sure looks like Trump did the right thing as new info came in about the resurgence of the Taliban. That kind of thinking was not possible in the Bumblebrain administration which resulted in our catastrophic surrender of Afghanistan to the most primitive band of murderous ragheads on earth today. And the wall, wasn't that opposed by all the leftwing idiots in Congress at the time who cut off funds for it. Those same idiots build walls around their homes at our expense, and are now looking funds to quietly build more wall along our "secure" southern boundary. Talk about lies. And thanks for bringing this up.

But would love to hear you assess Biden's foreign policies re Russia, China, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudis, Venezuela, ... - now there's been a clean sweep of genius from the halls of this administration.

Don't forget the gift of billions in abandoned weapons and equipment when Biden pulled the troops. Like Christmas morning for the terrorists not that they celebrate.

“How Do People Know the Truth?”: Biden Unleashes Tirade Over Musk Restoring Free Speech Protections on Twitter

Afghanistan: Everyone warned Trump, everyone warned Biden. Do not fight in the Mid East in summer!! Leave in the winter when they are not set up. That’s the time to exit. The Taliban and all those Stone Age savages we left with billions of dollars of high tech weapons in their hands always fight in lspring through summer, but not in winter. It’s been that way for centuries. It’s Biblical.

“It happened in the spring of the year, at the time kings go out to battle, that Joab led out the armed forces and ravaged the country of the people of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem. And Joab defeated Rabbah and overthrew it.”

Cross reference:

“In the spring, at the time when kings march out to war, David sent out Joab and his servants with the whole army of Israel. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah, but David remained in Jerusalem.”

But, nooo. Biden knew better. And we all paid. There are still Americans in Afghanistan left behind to this very hour, not to mention the lost of 13 US Marines which could have been avoided with timing.

However, I think we all underestimate the ‘Biden Knows Best’ disaster. Afghanistan started the shift away from Biden. It’s was Afghanistan when it started.
Joe Biden was packaged as an emphatic caring man whom himself had face big tragedies in his own life—the suddenly death of his wife in a car wreck and later his firstborn son who died of brain cancer. Joe knows your pain.

But Afghanistan showed Biden to be a cruel person. The cover of empathic Joe was blown. Cruel, heartless man. No GOD; no Good Orderly Direction. It’s not leaving Afghanistan that is the question, but how it was done. It did not have to end in total chaos….in summer when all the kings’ armies gathered and marched for war. A few months later would have made a world of difference. Not leaving that he’ll hole, but the execution of the departure is the big black eye. After that, Biden looked like a different kind of person. Mean, boneheaded, leaving carnage in his wake.

Punchy Punch Emery. Ya, I remember when Clinton said our boys would back from Bosnia by Christmas. How many years after the “wave of air strikes in our first air war” did we stay there? Home by Christmas sounds like a Hallmark Movie.

Hang tight to that Jan 6 stuff. Hang vary tight. Meanwhile, you have hitched your wagon for a real McCoy war monger who will not allow a negotiated settlement. They want war with Russia so much that are slobbering all over themselves as I say, Chao.

Opps: correction to above

“Afghanistan: Everyone warned Trump, everyone warned Biden. Do not fight in the Mid East in summer!! Leave in the winter when they are not set up.” —wrong.

“Afghanistan: Everyone warned Trump, everyone warned Biden. Do not FLEE in the Mid East in summer!! Leave in the winter when they are not set up.” —correct
