There is a crisis taking place in Afghanistan right now and the Biden administration could not care less. In fact, they have decided that they are in need of a vacation. It must be nice! White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has elected to get some rest and relaxation, as things get worse and worse.
The mess that they have made isn’t enough for them to care about. Meanwhile, Joe Biden is already on vacation and he refuses to address the general public in any meaningful way. Is anyone surprised, though? We know that we are not. If you are sending any questions to Jen Psaki at the moment, guess what?
You are going to be greeted by an automated recording that tells you she will be back in the office on August 22. It’s pretty convenient timing, isn’t it? “I will be out of the office from August 15th-August 22nd,” reads the auto-reply message that is being sent to reporters at the moment.
Where is Joe Biden?

“To confirm Fox reporting – We asked Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki for comment about Afghanistan. Here the actual automated response: “I will be out of the office from August 15th-August 22nd,” the Techno Fog Twitter account confirms. Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who is black, has been forced into the thankless role of answering for this fiasco.

This is the progressive administration, too. That’s how they portray themselves, at least. Do they actually care about anyone outside of their cozy little cabal of Democrats? You already know that they do not. They are placing their lack of concern for their fellow man on full display this week.
Afghanistan’s new de facto leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is already issuing a victory declaration. He and his fellow Taliban members are referring to the country as the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan”. This seems like a colossal failure to us but what do we know? We are not smart enough to have gone on vacation as soon as the proverbial you know what hits the fan.
If you do not think that this was planned by the administration, we have a bridge to sell you. Baradar was at the presidential palace in Kabul when the statement was made and our blood ran cold when we saw it for ourselves. For their part, they seem pretty confident that they have regained control of the country.
“We have achieved an unexpected victory,” he said. “Now is the time to test, to show how we serve our people and ensure their future in the best possible way.” Instead of being on hand to deal with the crisis that he has created, Biden has taken off and he hopes that the news cycle will benefit him in some way. Just wait until something else magically happens to push this story off the front page.
You already know that it is coming. This administration is putting in all of the calls that they can. They are going to want to distract people’s attention away from this quagmire. 20 years in Afghanistan and trillions of dollars spent, with nothing to show for it. It took us 20 years to establish something worthwhile over there and within a week, it is gone forever.
The victory was unexpected for the Taliban because they never expected that Biden would walk away and simply hand over the country to them like this. We saw it coming a mile away but we had hoped that cooler heads would eventually prevail. Biden turned tail and went home, while the nation burned. This is a bitter pill to swallow for all of the Afghan residents who do not support this coup.
We wish that this administration cared as much about anything as they did about pandering to the progressives. They would rather let the world perish than to admit that they were wrong. Psaki, Biden and all of these Democrats are absolute cowards who ought to be ashamed of themselves.
