President Biden’s Authoritarian, Unconstitutional, and Un-American Vaccine Mandate

10 Sep

House Republicans were quick to condemn President Biden’s forced vaccine mandate that will impact over 100 million Americans. 

Make no mistake: Biden’s forced vaccine mandate is an unconstitutional, unlawful, and authoritarian power grab that has become a hallmark of Biden’s failed Presidency.

Key Inflation Indicator Hits A New Record High

10 Sep

President Biden and House Democrats’ out-of-control spending has caused a key inflation index to hit a new record high. The producer price index (PPI) climbed at the fastest annual pace on record for the fifth consecutive month in August.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Inflation is taxation, and it has gone up every month of Joe Biden’s presidency.
    • PPI jumped 8.3% year over year, according to the Labor Department in August, a new record high.
    • This is the largest jump since 12-month data was first calculated in November 2010.
  • The record high PPI numbers come just a week after the August jobs report fell well short of economists’ expectations.
    • The U.S. economy added only 235,000 jobs in August compared to an expected 720,000.
    • CNN called the August report a “big disappointment” while CNBC said it was “terrible news” for the American economy.
    • This is the weakest jobs report of Joe Biden’s presidency.
    • 8.4 MILLION Americans remained unemployed in August.
    • There are 10.5 million job openings.
    • The number of unfilled job openings has remained far above the 48-year historical average of 22%.
    • The black unemployment rate jumped from 8.2% to 8.8% in August.

It’s simple: Inflation is a tax on every American, and it has gone up every month of Joe Biden’s presidency. What are Biden and House Democrats doing to gain control of our skyrocketing inflation that is caused by their out-of-control spending?

They are ramming through Biden’s reckless $3.5 TRILLION tax and spending spree that will kill American jobs, increase taxes on Americans, and increase inflation even more.

Meet The New Afghanistan Government, It’s Filled With Radical Islamic Terrorists

8 Sep

President Biden and his Administration continue to showcase their weak and failed leadership when it comes to Afghanistan. They are now refusing to condemn Afghanistan’s new government, which is filled with radical Islamic terrorists.

Just days before the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, the Taliban announced that Sirajuddin Haqqani would be Afghanistan’s first minister of interior. This is nothing short of a slap in the face to the United States and our allies.

Haqqani is a U.S.-designated terrorist with close ties to al Qaeda, the group responsible for the 9/11 attacks that killed thousands of Americans. Unfortunately, Haqqani isn’t the only radical Islamic terrorist in Afghanistan’s new government.

MEET THE NEW AFGHANISTAN GOVERNMENT:

  • Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, one of the Taliban’s founders who is on a United Nations Security Council sanctions list, was named prime minister.

  • Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of the Haqqani Network — a US-designated terror group in Pakistan and Afghanistan with close ties to al-Qaida — was named interior minister. He is currently on the FBI’s most-wanted list, and there is a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head.

    • The FBI’s most-wanted list says Haqqani is wanted for “questioning in connection with the January 2008 attack on a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed six people, including an American citizen.”

  • Four of the Guantanamo detainees whom former President Obama released in exchange for former U.S. Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in 2014 now hold senior positions in Afghanistan’s government: Khairullah Khairkhwa, Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, and Mohammad Fazl.

    • On Tuesday, the Taliban announced that Khairkhwa would serve as acting minister for information and culture, Noori would serve as acting minister of borders and tribal affairs, Wasiq would serve as acting director of intelligence, and Fazl would serve as deputy defense minister.

    • Wasiq will reprise his role as the Taliban’s intelligence director, previously serving in the role prior to 9/11 terrorist attacks on America.

    • Thomas Joscelyn, a senior fellow for the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), has noted that Fazl will also return to his role as deputy defense minister, stating, “U.S. officials found that Fazl worked with senior al Qaeda personnel, including Abdel Hadi al Iraqi, one of Osama bin Laden’s chief lieutenants.”

  • Despite the growing list of radical Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan’s new government, President Biden and his Administration have refused to condemn them.

    • When asked what makes the Biden Administration think the Taliban has somehow changed? National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said, “Well, it’s hard to put a label on it…In part because we have yet to see what they are going to be now that they’re in control.”

    • Other U.S. officials shockingly raised the possibility of coordinating with the Taliban to conduct counterterrorism strikes against ISIS-K.

It’s simple: The Biden administration must take immediate action and denounce the appointment of Sirajuddin Haqqani, refuse to recognize the new Taliban government, and prohibit aid to the Taliban from the U.S. or international financial organizations.

The August Jobs Report Was A Big Disappointment As Biden’s Economic Crisis Rages On

3 Sep

President Biden’s economic crisis continues as nearly half a million FEWER jobs were created in August than expected. CNN called the August report a “big disappointment” while CNBC said it was “terrible news” for the American economy.

The August jobs report is the weakest of Joe Biden’s presidency, with 8.4 MILLION Americans remaining unemployed despite there being 10.5 MILLION job openings in America.

THE AUGUST JOBS REPORT BY THE NUMBERS:

  • The August jobs report fell well short of economists’ expectations adding only 235,000 jobs in August compared to an expected 720,000
  • This is the weakest jobs report of Joe Biden’s presidency.
  • 8.4 MILLION Americans remain unemployed in August.
  • There are 10.5 MILLION job openings.
  • The number of unfilled job openings has remained far above the 48-year historical average of 22%.
  • The labor force participation rate remained unchanged at 61.7% in August.
  • The black unemployment rate jumped from 8.2% to 8.8% in August.
  • Food services and drinking places lost 42,000 jobs in August.
  • Employment in retail trade lost 29,000 jobs in August.
  • Food and beverage stores lost 23,000 jobs in August.
  • Transit and ground passenger transportation lost 8,000 jobs in August.
  • Local government education lost 6,000 jobs in August.

It’s simple: President Biden and House Democrats’ Far-Left policies have slowed America’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and are incentivizing Americans to stay out of the workforce.

Biden Calls 13 Dead Service Members And Hundreds Of Americans Abandoned An “Extraordinary Success”

31 Aug

President Biden called his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan an “extraordinary success” this afternoon. Make no mistake: Thirteen dead service members and hundreds of Americans stranded behind enemy lines is an abject FAILURE

Biden’s tone-deaf remarks came just hours after House Democrats BLOCKED Republican efforts to ensure transparency from the Biden Administration about the withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

The Afghanistan Withdrawal Oversight and Liability Act would require Biden to submit withdrawal reports to Congress, including one that details how many Americans remain in Afghanistan and another that discloses “any agreements between the United States and the Taliban.”

Begging the question: What are Democrats hiding?

THE FACTS ABOUT BIDEN’S FAILED WITHDRAWAL: 

  • President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. 
  • President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has led to:
  • The Biden Administration has no plan to get those Americans they left behind in Afghanistan out of the country. 
  • Terrorists are now emboldened to attack Americans.
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.

Joe Biden Abandons Hundreds of Americans In Afghanistan; He Has Failed Us As Commander-In-Chief

31 Aug

President Biden has failed America as our Commander-in-chief. Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan came to an end yesterday, and contrary to previous promises, Biden abandoned hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. 

During an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos just 12 days before, Biden promised,” if there’s American citizens left, we’re gonna stay to get them all out.” 

That was a LIE. 

BIDEN HAS FAILED AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF: 

  • President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. 
  • President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has led to:
  • The Biden Administration has no plan to get those Americans they left behind in Afghanistan out of the country. 
  • Terrorists are now emboldened to attack Americans.
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.

It’s simple: We don’t leave Americans behind. President Biden failed to get every last American out of Afghanistan that is unacceptable and un-American.

Pray For Our Troops

26 Aug

Our hearts break across the country for the brave service members who made the ultimate sacrifice and for all those lost today. Their families are facing unimaginable news. Please join us in praying for them.

Sadly, it didn’t have to be this way. 

The terrorist attacks at the Kabul airport are a horrific national security and humanitarian disaster. This is a direct result of President Biden’s weak and failed leadership. This administration’s incompetence has led to the loss of American lives and has left countless more at risk. 

Today has been the deadliest day in Afghanistan since Obama was President. The buck stops with the President of the United States, and right now Joe Biden is MIA. 

BIDEN’S FAILURES HAVE EMBOLDENED TERRORISTS:

Make no mistake: President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan has created a terrorist breeding ground that poses real and pressing threats to our homeland just before the somber 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Pelosi Shows Off Her Detachment From Reality By Defending Biden’s Judgment

25 Aug

Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed how detached from reality she is when she defended President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, telling reporters that she trusts Biden’s “judgment”

WHAT? Is Pelosi watching the same news as everyone else? 

President Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is indefensible and has been criticized as a disaster by both Democratic and Republican lawmakers. 

It’s simple: Afghanistan is President Biden’s Saigon, and Americans’ don’t trust President Biden’s judgment when it comes to Afghanistan for good reason.

BIDEN’S SAIGON:

  • President Biden is to blame for the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. No one else. 
  • Biden is the one who decided to pull out U.S. forces by the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
    • Unlike Joe Biden, President Trump struck a deal that included a conditions-based withdrawal of our military. 
    • The conditions of that agreement were continuously violated by the Taliban and the Biden administration did not hold them accountable. 
    • The Biden administration had been warned that the Taliban would stop at nothing until they retook the country. Now, the Taliban is back and the United States is less safe . 
    • The decision by the Biden Administration to abandon Bagram Air Base early and leave only a few hundred troops at Hamid Karzai International Airport opened the door to the Taliban’s rapid takeover. 
  • Due to Joe Biden’s failure to adequately plan, there are now more than twice the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan than when he took office. 
  • Biden has surrendered to the Taliban’s arbitrary timeline. 
  • The Biden Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan. This is unacceptable and un-American. 
  • Rather than cave to the Taliban and comply with an arbitrary deadline, the President must guarantee every single American is evacuated, no matter how long it takes. 
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.
  • The Taliban are now in possession of American weapons, including helicopters, airplanes, tanks, Humvees, and other military-grade weapons.

Joe Biden must fight for every American life until the mission is complete. Anything less is unacceptable and UN-AMERICAN.

President Biden Caves To The Taliban’s Timeline

24 Aug

Today, President Biden surrendered unconditionally and agreed to the Taliban’s arbitrary withdrawal timeline rather than ensuring Americans’ safety. 

This should not be a negotiation. America doesn’t cave to terrorists, we set our own timelines. The President must guarantee that every American is safely evacuated no matter how long it takes.

President Biden is turning his back on the safety and security of the American people who are STRANDED behind enemy lines. His Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan.

Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal has put U.S. weapons and military equipment in the hands of known terrorists who will use them to attack innocent people, solidify their reign of terror abroad, and threaten our national security.

Joe Biden must fight for every American life until the mission is complete. Anything less is unacceptable and UN-AMERICAN.

  • Joe Biden has surrendered to the Taliban’s arbitrary timeline. 
  • President Biden’s indefensible decisions and failure to lead are squarely to blame for the situation in Afghanistan.
  • Every single American must be safely evacuated as quickly as possible from Afghanistan.
  • The Biden Administration can’t even tell us how many Americans remain in Afghanistan. This is unacceptable and un-American. 
  • Rather than cave to the Taliban and comply with an arbitrary deadline, the President must guarantee every single American is evacuated, no matter how long it takes. 
  • Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs John Kirby joined CNN where he ADMITTED the Administration has NO PLANS to help Americans get out of Afghanistan.
  • The catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and puts doubt in the minds of our allies.
  • The Taliban are now in possession of American weapons, including helicopters, airplanes, tanks, Humvees, and other military-grade weapons.
  • White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to admit that Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, despite an abundance of evidence to the contrary.

Biden Still Can’t Guarantee Safe Passage for Americans In Afghanistan, U.S Allies Uneasy

20 Aug

As the world looks on, President Biden continues to exemplify weakness and failure, instead of confidence.

The Biden Administration STILL cannot guarantee safe passage for Americans being forced to hide in Afghanistan. Americans should not have to rely on the Taliban to safely get out of Afghanistan.

France and the U.K. are having their troops leave the lines of the Kabul airport to help evacuate their citizens. Why is President Biden not doing the same to save stranded Americans?

This is unacceptable and UNAMERICAN. Why is there no clear plan to get Americans, our friends, and allies out of Afghanistan?

WE ARE STILL WAITING ON BIDEN’S PLAN: 

  • The Biden Administration has yet to present a clear plan to Congress
    • How the U.S. will get Americans safely out of Afghanistan; 
      • According to the Pentagon, there are 10,000-15,000 American citizens still in Afghanistan – how will the Biden-Harris administration ensure their safety?
      • Relying on the Taliban is not an acceptable strategy.
    • How the U.S. will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan;
    • How the U.S. will prevent terrorist organizations from regrouping in Afghanistan; and 
    • How will the U.S. protect the homeland from emerging terrorist threats in Afghanistan.

BIDEN’S FAILURES LEAD TO AMERICA’S ERODING STANDING IN THE WORLD 

  • Biden’s catastrophic failure in Afghanistan has emboldened our adversaries and put doubt in the minds of our allies
    • China, Iran and Russia wasted no time attempting to advance their own interests by seizing on President Biden’s failure.
    • U.S. allies are questioning U.S. resolve and frustrated that the President’s decisions have put their own national security at risk.

British lawmakers vented their anger at President Biden over the collapse of Afghanistan into Taliban hands, calling it a failure of intelligence, leadership and moral duty.
