All of the posters who were screaming about Trump not doing his job have been silent about what's happening at the border. Is that because the border was a Trump thing, or because they are just being team blue players, or both?

What did Biden do with the playbook developed in the Obama Biden administration?

He was given a 95% effective vaccine and still has more Covid deaths under his belt than trump.

You must not have been paying attention to Trump and the GQP's rhetoric then.

While President Joe Biden busies himself accumulating power over Americans and turning the country into a bankrupt socialist cesspool, he’s ignoring something that was primary in his predecessor’s mind — protecting the American people.

Relatives and loved ones of Americans held hostage abroad sent a letter to Biden asking him to do his job and bring them home as promised.

The letter, delivered Monday, was signed by dozens of relatives questioning the Biden administration’s commitment to rescue their loved ones.

They suggested that the administration appeared to be getting "bogged down in burdensome processes or policy debates that keep our loved ones from coming home and keep us uninformed of what you can and cannot do to help us." The letter continued, "We need to be shown that the promises of your administration to prioritize the return of our family members are not empty. Now is the time for action. Now we need you to bring our fellow Americans home."

The issue of American citizens left in Afghanistan has been marred by Biden’s broken promises to the American people as well as outright lies.

During an August 18 interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden promised that U.S. troops would remain in Afghanistan until all Americans had safely exited the country.

He broke that promise less than two weeks later. After a chaotic withdrawal of forces, Biden claimed that he had left approximately 100 American citizens stranded in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

Until late last week administration officials repeated the claim that the number left behind was "around 100," despite reports from sources on the ground stating otherwise.

Unfortunately, most of those 120,000 evacuees were Afghan nationals, largely unvetted.

He left hundreds of Americans behind.

The administration now puts the number at close to 400, according to a senior congressional source who was briefed Thursday by the State Department.

"We now know this administration repeatedly lied to the world about the citizens of our country it abandoned in Afghanistan," said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., to the Washington Free Beacon. "But it did something even worse: It broke a sacred bond of trust between Americans and their government. This isn’t close to over."

Government’s primary obligation is to protect its citizens. Former President Donald Trump understood that.

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson listed the top 25 accomplishments of the Trump administration — most of them directly benefitting the American people. But one not listed that he was most proud of was brokering the release of Americans held hostage in foreign countries.

In August 2020 Trump announced that "we brought back over 50 hostages from over 22 different countries," adding that "we are very proud of the job we did."

And unlike Obama, he did it without shipping pallets of cash to rogue regimes.

He did it instead through a change of policy and focus, according to experts.

Biden also described the withdrawal of forces as an "extraordinary success." But in truth he didn’t put an end to hostilities — he increased tensions in the region and turned Afghanistan into a giant petri dish promoting the growth of terrorism.

The late novelist Octavia Butler cautioned her readers to "choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought" in her book, "Parable of the Talents."

She explained that:

"To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears.

"To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool.

"To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen.

"To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies.

"To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery."

With Biden, Americans are arguably governed by all five: a coward, a fool, a thief, a liar and a tyrant.

I completely disagree with a blanket statement of "protecting Americans". Protecting Americans from foreign threats, while abroad, yes. Me in my home, at my work, in my car, in another state - no, not his responsibility at all

Is this the same National Enquirer that protected Trump from disclosures about his year-long affair with girlfriend Karen McDougal? Ole' Donnie was two-timing both Melania and Karen at the same time when he had his $130K one-nighter with Stormy Daniels!

You got me there.

Is Biden’s rhetoric more effective?
Well considering MAGAT's and the right subscribe to a cult and the messaging has been going on long enough to condition many of the deplorables before Biden came into office and continues though today might have something to do with it.
