The Afghan Withdrawal: Just Another Debacle For A Fallen America

 

As with every other left-induced debacle in contemporary America, the debacle of the Afghan withdrawal leaves rational patriotic Americans shaking their heads in disbelief and disillusionment.  As with all the other debacles: COVID response, open borders, mollycoddling violent criminals, pushing socialism, transgender madness, out of control trillion, zillion spending – they are left to ask the question:  How can all of this be happening in the greatest country in the history of mankind?

But let’s focus on Afghanistan for now, while keeping in mind the context of an America in severe decline.  Look, whether we had twenty years or a thousand years, there was never going to be a way for us to fix Afghanistan.  Why, we could no more fix what’s wrong with Afghanistan than we, apparently, can fix what’s wrong with . . . Portland!  Or San Francisco!  Or Baltimore!  Or Chicago!  Or you name the ruined, Democrat-run American city.  Or for that matter, you name the particular section of the ruined American heartland, which is fast and deliberately being filled up with endless illegals.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up all crazy martinis today!  First, they cringe as Joe Biden literally forgets where is giving a speech, showing more evidence of decline just weeks before Democrats officially nominate him for president. They also dig into the long game of the Democrats and their media allies, as they hammer the COVID responses of the GOP governors of Texas and Florida.  And they get a kick out of how the Joe Kennedy III Senate campaign is lashing out at Boston Globe after the paper endorsed incumbent Democrat Ed Markey.
