(Aug. 21, 2021) — The continuing cataclysm unfolding in Afghanistan gets worse with each passing day as somewhere between 10,000 and 40,000 American citizens remain trapped in the country. One, of course – let alone thousands –, would be too many. As for the situation at the Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport, leftist flak George Stephanopoulos interviews and asks the Goofball-in-Chief about the pandemonium taking place there.
The Goof – bereft of anything resembling a “plan” to evacuate Americans after his intentionally treasonous actions precipitating their peril – casually comments: “Well, but look, no one’s being killed right now…” as he knocks on a wood side table positioned next to his ox-blood red leather chair, safely ensconced in the District of Columbia. He then adds: “God forgive me if I’m wrong about that…, but no one’s being killed right now.” Seriously? Maybe he should check with “that guy who runs the Pentagon.”
This piece of human waste is actually justifying his actions by claiming that no Americans have yet been killed by the Fifth Century hyenas he incentivized to overthrow the then-existing Afghanistan government. Worse yet, he invokes the name of the Lord to “forgive” him if he is wrong about that claim. If it turns out that a single American is proven to have been killed, the narrative will immediately shift to the meaning of “right now,” reprising Slick Willie Clinton’s defense of “it depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”
Rest assured, the Democrat Party Goebbels propaganda arm will rush to the Goof’s defense, lipstick at the ready, and claim that when he said “right now,” he meant at the precise moment that he answered Stephanopoulos …, and was not referring to the exact moment when the as-yet unidentified American was, in fact, murdered in Kabul by a hyena wielding a military M-16.
We now learn that even one of the U.S. generals at the airport is reported to have admonished his British counterpart to stop venturing out from the airport perimeter into Kabul on rescue missions. Those actions were making the U.S. look “bad” since U.S. forces are under orders to remain inside the perimeter to make sure the airfield is secured. The Brit reportedly told the U.S. general to “pound sand”… or something more colloquial.
Memo to everyone and anyone reading this post: this is what happens when leftists, socialists, and, as now, Democrats are elected to office. This is what happens when mainstream media propaganda, social media platform censorship and emotional animus – rather than rational thought – shape and determine electoral decisions. This is what happens when unfolded “mail-in” ballots are run through election tabulator machines… multiple times. This is what happens when more votes for the Goof show up at 4:00 AM than there are registered voters in the county.
And yet, this is what the Democrats strive to legitimize and weld into federal law through their vaunted H.R. 1 and S. 1 monstrosities. Pray that Manchin and Sinema preserve the filibuster.
On a more optimistic note, a recent Rasmussen poll indicates that fully 9 percent of Democrats who voted for the Goof in 2020 now regret that decision. If one utilizes the “always-accurate” (just kidding) 2020 general election figures from CNN, the Goof received 81,284,666 (interesting final number…, no?) votes and President Trump received 74,224,319 votes.
If one subtracts 9 percent of the “now-regretted” votes from the Goof, but adds none of those votes to the Trump total, the Goof would have garnered 73,969,046 votes… and would have thus lost the popular vote. If on the other hand the 9 percent were added to President Trump’s total, he would have garnered 81,539,939 votes, or some 250,000 more votes than the Goof originally was credited (ummm… by CNN) with receiving. Interestingly as well, the poll also revealed that, a scant eight months into the Goofball Regime and knowing what they know now about this loon, “13 percent of Democrats even said that they would vote for Trump today.”
These numbers, of course, measure only the popular votes, not the Electoral College votes, which ultimately determine who becomes the president…, a matter addressed and discussed here and here…, thank you, Michael Pence. Still, 13 percent of Democrats who comatosely voted for the Goof in 2020 would now vote for Trump. Even using CNN’s numbers, that percentage amounts to 10,567,007 votes. Too bad those Democrats did not emerge from their coma before now, because they were warned and knew, or clearly should have known, of the cancer now infecting the Oval Office.
And now, we have perhaps as many as 40,000 American citizens stuck in Afghanistan…, and the Goof’s latest plan to extract them is to knock on wood… and ask the Lord to forgive him if he is wrong. Oh, and remember, this addled misfit has access to the nuclear launch codes.
But I digress.
Unlike the mythical King Midas, who had the power of turning everything he touched into gold, the Goofball, his enablers, his marionette masters (ummm… where are Susan Rice and Barack Obama …?) and his “Goebbelsesque” propaganda apparatchiks possess the ability to turn everything they touch into (here, faithful P&E readers, insert your favorite pejorative noun).
The Goof needs to either resign (and his sidekick, too… what to do about the Speaker of the House is another matter…) or be removed from office. Impeachment with the Wretch from San Crapcisco still in power is unlikely, so invocation of the 25th Amendment may be the only immediately available scalpel.
Any other suggestions for heading off at the pass even more bad…, even really bad… things? Let us hope for the best, and plan for the worst. And perhaps all of us should knock on wood.
