Joe Biden Traps Americans, Allies He Left Behind

NEW YORK — Is Joe Biden on America’s side?

This incredible question — unthinkable in recent memory — underscores the canyonesque depths of the president’s callousness and staggering disregard for his own countrymen and those who have stood with America in the battle against al-Qaeda and Biden’s new best friends: The Taliban.

In a development that is almost impossible to believe, Joe Biden’s State Department has worked hard to trap within Afghanistan the very same U.S. citizens, Green Card holders, and pro-American Afghans whom they abandoned by the thousands as part of Biden’s epic act of premature withdrawal.

Fox News Channel’s Peter Hasson on Wednesday reported exclusively on an e-mail sent from the State Department to Eric Montalvo. This private citizen is laboring as mightily as the Biden Administration should be — but isn’t — to deploy private flights to save Americans still in Afghanistan.

Rather than applaud and assist Montalvo’s valiant efforts, the State Department has impeded his mission. 

“No independent charters are allowed to land at [Al Udeid Air Base], the military airbase you mentioned in your communication with Samantha Power. In fact, no charters are allowed to land at an [sic] DoD base and most if not all countries in the Middle Eastern region, with the exception of perhaps Saudi Arabia will allow charters to land,” a State Department functionary e-mailed Montalvo on September 1.  

“You need to find another destination country, and it can’t be the U.S. either,” the State Department bureaucrat sniffed.

“Once you have had discussions with the host/destination country and reached an agreement, they may require some indication from the USG that we ‘approve’ of this charter flight. DOS will not provide an approval, but we will provide a ‘no objection’ to the destination country government via the U.S. Embassy in that country.”  

Such intransigence starts at the top, with Biden, and trickles down through Secretary of State Antony Blinken to the pencil-pusher who threw  monkey wrenches in Montalvo’s machinery of mercy. If Biden truly wanted every American in Afghanistan home in time for dinner, Blinken and his entire building full of deputy assistant undersecretaries would move Heaven and Hell to see that every guest of the Taliban instead supped with his loved ones before the soup got cold.

Instead, Montalvo and his band of heroes is told to back off.


Biden is several notches below a stubborn, yet negligent, father of five who drives home from the mall with three of his children at exactly 6:00 p.m. He knows full well that his two other kids cannot meet that deadline because they are being followed by MS-13 members. Nonetheless, he burns rubber out of the parking lot and speeds back to the family house.

Even worse, when concerned relatives arrange to transport the two trapped kids back to their residence, Biden arranges roadblocks so that they cannot escape the shopping center. So, they remain subject to the whims of local thugs.

Biden’s “Up yours!” attitude to his own countrymen goes 20,000 leagues under the minimal expectations of his harshest critics last fall.

Biden has become America’s sadist-in-chief. He shuttered the Keystone XL Pipeline and sacked its workers on his first afternoon in office. Biden’s no-border policy has exposed U.S. citizens to COVID-19-infected illegal aliens. And now Team Biden is laboring mightily to keep Americans behind Taliban lines. Do Biden & Co. enjoy hurting their fellow citizens? If not, then it’s beyond debate that Biden and his minions do not give a goddamn how much Americans suffer — even physically — due to their actions.

Even the execrable Bill Kristol must concede that “the bully,” Donald J. Trump, neither would instruct nor permit Mike Pompeo to ground Americans as they tried to fly out of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. 

Leave it to Joe Biden to transform the U.S. State Department into the enemy of the American people.

  1. Biden and Harris are losers. Our military equipment should have been bombed. No common sense. Biden and Harris can make it to California for their Governor but not to the southern border. Blinken is a loser too. He let China walk all over us on our own land. He has no oranges. I’m totally disgusted with the Republican Party. They should be standing up for Americans. They are not vocal enough.

      1. Our Embassy?
        We have no Embassy in Afghanistan.
        Embassies are at the pleasure of the host government.
        Trunp cut the previous Afgan government out of the Art of the Deal.

        1. youre such a moron hess, the embassy was taken over y the taliban under the biden f-up! ands ztop spreading lies. we aint falling for them. we’re well aware of what has happened there and everywhere. Everythin jo touches turns to dross,.

    1. How about Milley and the generals that swore to protect and serve, when now are serving themselves and lying about it.

    2. How many of our troops would have been lost to bombing our equipment?
      More than 13?
      How much in dollars?
      I am so disgusted with Republicans who failed to bring a 16 year failed invasion to a close.
      Joe did it seven months.
      At a cost of 13 dead troops.
      On the scale of a failed invasion losses, BFD.

      1. Bull crap shut your lieing pie hole. Keep spewing out lies. Go back to your own country oh I forgot it’s communism ran and you didn’t like it so you’d rather have it over here. This is the land of the free and the free will win. We are many and you can’t take us all. We are free willed the whole world knows this covid crap is man made to control and depopulate. Ppl are NOT as stupid as you may think.,, Al get a job that doesn’t make you look like you have your finger up your A s s .

          1. Oh you mean south Ohio close to the ocean right… you wouldn’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Except you have your finger in it wiping it on the wall cause you don’t believe in TP

      2. You are as big a liar as ole demented Joe! You are as big a joke as ole Joe who loves little girls! Ole evil Joe has done nothing good for our country in the last 7 months! Actually, ole Joe was in the Senate for 40 years and accomplished nothing!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Truth hurts, doesn’t it Albert?

      3. Wow are you that ———- – I won’t even say it – I guess you fail to say that 8 of those years -your favorite son OBUMMER was running the show for half of the war — your savior – I know Bush was a nit -wit – Trump had everything well in hand – in less that 4 years he pretty much ended the war other than leaving the space – God I love your lines – money is right up their – thanks we know where your heart is — By the way Running is not an acceptable means of leaving and only a coward would do that and I can tell by your comments you never served – well pal – your in for a long meaningless life

      4. The DEATH’S of AMERICANS IS NOT OVER DUMBO, the taliban has thousands of hostages, and dictator bi den talks with the taliban, he trusts the taliban, the F N taliban are in AMERICAN UNIFORMS WITH AMERICAN WEAPONS!!! YOU ARE EITHER BLIND OR STUPID!!!

    3. WHAT ELSE CAN YOU EXPECT FROM GUTLESS WONDERS AND BACK-STABBNG RINOS WHO SUBBORNED AND AIDED IN THE REMOVAL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP?The 2020 electon awas the mst fraudulent one in history and every DAY more evidence of it is discovered in lost ballotsor lost records or a variety of other serious irregularities in all ofthe contended States which the Left assiduously tries to deny or cover up! If they have nothing to hide as they constantly claim,, why act so stronlgly to hide it? Good and valid question: so where is the reply, good bad or ugly?

  2. Will we be attacked on the 11 th by Obama/Biden ? And the Muslim brotherhood? The writing is on the wall ! They hate America and have led the would be democrats to this end ! So sad. 😔🙏🏻😔🇺🇸

    1. If we are attacked, and it’s probable, it will be on Jihad Joe and his band of demons. He’s the biggest threat to the entire globe, and if he wasn’t so demented he would make a perfect anti-Christ.

        1. You just dont get it, Albert. Trump won and Biden lost….You cannot win an election when it was stolen, what is it you don’t understand?????

    2. Agree with you! Obama has been very very busy since he left office. Spent a lot of time with Fauci in the Wohan Lab in 2017, and with Fauci and Melinda Gates way back in 2015. Something is very strange when they choose to spend time together at a Laboratory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. What dates was Fauci in Wuhan?
        I am always amazed when ever any leader, past, present, or future, meets with one of the founders of one of the most successful companies in America.
        A thousand times more successful than Trump Inc.

        1. Albert, all your replies are so dumb….stop, we see you for the communist that you are. We know you hate Trump, who is the greatest President since Kennedy. Trump loves our country and we know ole demented Joe hates this country…he already sold out the US to China!

    3. Biden, Obama and the Muslim Botherhood will be giving a blow by blow commentary on a couple of people of color beating hell out of each other on
      It is all colored folk are good for.

      1. Your sick quit race baiting it’s not gonna work. Ppl are a lot smarter then you think. It’s the left who thinks we are stupid. Just wait snd see what happens l

    1. every single one of them, all the fbi, all the doj, all the secret service, all heads of every department and send the other member of the department to work in Timbuctoo

      1. As you and Hess know, the deep state is deeply entrenched. Trump could not even control his own DOJ (Barr’s burying the Hunter Biden so it would not affect the election, and Durham’s investigation being shelved pending the election outcome).

  3. Can we say,”Hit the nail on the head” with this article!!! Wanna bet the dems will never see this article because Nancy Pickled-losi and Schmuck wont allow theirm minmnions to see anything negative about their chosen one!!!

  4. He needs to be removed from office. He is not running the Country, former Obama personnel are. He and the Demo party are unamerican. What a disgrace!

    1. I’ve been posting your sentiment for quite a while. Most times it doesn’t get much traction because many people voted for the election of the molato, not once but twice. Here we find ourselves in his 3rd term.
      If people don’t wake up by Nov 2022, let alone 2024, we won’t be here posting opinions.
      It no longer will be allowed. I hope I’m wrong!

    2. I believe that Obama and only Obama is running everything. He has been working on this for years. He lives right around the corner from the White House. It would not surprise me if they don’t have a tunnel to the White House.

      1. Look no further than Susan Rice. She is the puppet master. Biden lacks the mental acuity to make these decisions. Ms. Rice’s education is international affairs. She helped Obama develop his policies of appeasement and apologizing for America.

      1. You are not worth responding to Albert…why are you on these posts….Oh I know you just love stirring the pot…it is just so bad for you to lie like you do.

  5. If “Sniffy”… had got every single American out before the collapse… he could have proclaimed “Mission Accomplished” … but he didn’t. Instead he blamed the mess on Trump. The 2024 election is going to be a real BARN BURNER!

    1. Don’t be too sure. There are a lot of liberals on both sides of the isle who are willfully blind and woefully ignorant. There are a million illegals who are going to be granted instant citizenship just before the 2022 election. We know which way they will go. The Democrats will leave o stone unturned to wipe out conservatives and the Republic we stand for. A small ‘earmark’ slipped into the so called infrastructure bill by Nancy Pelosi grants all illegals instant citizenship, free health care and education. If you don’t believe me check the bill yourself. It’s over a thousand pages just to confuse any member of congress who would take the time to read it. However, since most of us have internet and cable shouldn’t it be a law to post all bill so citizens who do want to read them can print portions of hard copy? I’m tired of reading these shadow bills after the fact..

    2. Bush declared Mission Accomplished.
      Bush lied.
      Biden recognized that the mission would never be accomplished.
      Trump did not.
      What does Mission Accomplished in Afghanistan really mean?
      That the vast majority of Afgans accept Jesus H. Christ as their personal Saviour?

  6. .
    None dare call it treason???
    If that be the case, then those who do not dare do so, are untrustworthy cowards … in the extreme … and/or are themselves treasonous bald-faced liars!

  7. Folks, Biden is evil to the core and why the media is not willing to admit that is beyond comprehension. To support Biden is to support the collapse of Our America, for Biden supporters that is a one way ticket to Hell.

  8. What a piece of human excrement, hidenbiden and his minions are, We need to get rid of these TRAITORS, RIGHT AWAY,they are totally incompetent, and have left Americans hostage, and allies hostage.

      START WITH bi den, then kameltoe, pel osi, schumer and so on UNTIL ALL THE TRAITOROUS COWARDS THAT COMMITTED TREASON ARE GOOD AND DEAD!!!

      1. Work for 2-3 hours 1n your spare OO time and get paid $1200 0n y0ur bank acc0unt every week…i

  9. Just unbelievable. Joe Biden, is destroying America. He left all of our military equipment to the Taliban, let all these refugees into America, without being vetted. Treating illegals like American citizens, while treating American citizens like invaders. Fook you Joe Biden, you are a real stand up piece of sh!t. Go get our American, citizens out of Afghanistan, and I’m not referring to the Taliban.

    1. Donna, unfortunately this was all intentional.
      American citizens are now the invaders and terrorists. My main question is:
      Are there more of them or us???
      Because at some point I don’t see this being sustainable. I truly believe that only a miracle will knock some sense in some people.
      I believe the hole we dug is now way to deep.
      But, I must remain hopeful.

        1. He finished what Trump started, and did so in a manner that reflected a surrender. That was quite intentional, and not at all the way Trump would have withdrawn had he been re-elected.

  10. Designated Foreign Terrorist Organization The Talaban, why were was Biden giving weapons of war to them when it is against the laws of the United States?
    International laws as well as United States laws broken by Biden orders to give weapoms of war to the Talaban.
    It is unlawful for a person in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to knowingly provide “material support or resources” to a designated FTO. (The term “material support or resources” is defined in 18 U.S.C. § 2339A(b)(1) as ” any property, tangible or intangible, or service, including currency or monetary instruments or financial securities, financial services, lodging, training, expert advice or assistance, safehouses, false documentation or identification, communications equipment, facilities, weapons, lethal substances, explosives, personnel (1 or more individuals who maybe or include oneself), and transportation, except medicine or religious materials.” 18 U.S.C. § 2339A(b)(2) provides that for these purposes “the term ‘training’ means instruction or teaching designed to impart a specific skill, as opposed to general knowledge.” 18 U.S.C. § 2339A(b)(3) further provides that for these purposes the term ‘expert advice or assistance’ means advice or assistance derived from scientific, technical or other specialized knowledge.’’

  11. Biden and his Administration are doing everything in their power to highlight Covid and mandates to get the focus off his abysmal fiasco of how he left Americans behind in Afghanistan. He needs to keep us masked, muzzled and afraid. Again the Democrats seek to divide us, now by vaccinated versus unvaccinated…because the race card was overplayed and we are waking up to its fallacy. Don’t let them succeed in taking more freedoms from us and obtaining more power at the Federal level.

  12. Jo is such an evil man – no conscience, no soul, no heart, no honor and definitely not upholding the constitution, which doesn’t seem to bother many of the senators and congressmen including the state that I am from. Am disgusted in McConnell, knew he was not a good man, but to allow our country to be destroyed without any fight is pond scum behavior. General Milley and the generals helping with this communist take over of America – these are the people obama installed after firing the good generals – are the vilest things walking the earth. You take a oath to uphold the constitution, and protect from foreign and domestic and in this process you admittedly lied to president Trump and are assisting the taliban a terrorist group that kill indiscriminately and enjoy it and you have no soul or conscience in not assisting them.

  13. Sez Biden: ‘Oh…TALIBAN…I thought you said Salad Bar!’ I propose a new moniker for the pResident: TaliBiden. .

  14. Arrest Biden for TREASON against the US Constitution and the People of America and that does not include illegal aliens What is wrong with ALL the Representatives in Washington are they not Americans sworn to represent the People of this Country.

    Time To lock and load and start again

  15. Biden and all of his Administration are all American haters and are for the Communist Party. They prove their alliance to them everyday since being in office. People are finally opening their eyes to what is going on in our country and the smart ones that aren’t being blinded and led like Satan groups, are finally aware of what these people represent. They need to be held accountable and taken down for Treason.

  16. It was obvious to me months ago that Biden is scum. Any full-grown male so obsessed with spreading infanticide (aka abortions) across the world as he so clearly avows is a callous, cowardly vomit bag harboring no redeeming qualities. His true colors have emerged; even thousands who defended him before are stepping forward to admit they voted for a loser. Why are we all surprised? Anyone who regards human fetuses as disposable as a gummy wrapper will equally have no conscience for Americans trapped behind enemy lines.

  19. Is there no chance America can replace this tragedy with a competent, sane leader? Right now ! Not next week, not next year, not tomorrow, NOW ! The damage he is doing to the Republic is fast becoming irreparable.He has never been a good man, always a loud, foul mouthed political hack. I can think of a dozen Democrats that would have been a better choice for them to run for president. We can’t wait another month or another three yeas to replace him. Stop the disaster now. .

  20. Send all of the demon-crats, Rinos and socialists news media over there. They obviously care more about our enemies than they do our country or us legal citizens.

  21. Neither Crazy Creepy Joe or any of the other misfitsin the Administration from Hell created by the most fraudulent election in our National history HAVE ANY TRUE IDEA OF HOW MANY AMERICAN CITIZENS THEY ABANDONED TO A NEARLY SURE FATE OF VIOLENT EXECUTION BY BEHEADING BY THE TALIBAN! If confirmation comes that this obscenity has occurred, the entire Administration should be indicted and charged tried for treason, and mass murder of those they were sworn to protect and serve and dereliction of duty, oath violation, and malfeasance in Office and; they should then end the same way as those they abandned . THAT would be the only true justice WE HAVE SEE IN DECADES AND THIS TIME, IT SHOULD BE FORCED ON THESE VERMIN!; so it serves as a warning to all others in Government to live up to their responsibilities or suffer the consequences! And for this fiasco by these frauds, it us high time they ARE held responsible and accountable for their incompetence and unwllingness to do whatever was NECESSARY to bring our people HOME! THE LOSS OF AN ESTIMATED $83 BILLON IN SOPHISTICATED WEAPONRY ABANDNED TO THE TALIBAN WAS BAD ENOUGH BUT, THE ABANDONMENT OF OUR PEOPLE IS INSANE AND UNFORGIVEABLE; ESPECIALLY TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE SO ABANDONED BUT, ABOUT WHOM WE HAVE HEARD NOTHING FROM THE USUALLY LOUDMOUTHED MASS MEDIA!

  22. Don’t forget the people who let democrats steal 2020 election!!
    Mitch McConnell, Linsey Graham,Paul Ryan, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, FBI director Wray, CIA director, DOJ Barr. All these people new Muller investigation was fraud. Republican Party is the deep state. Working against Americans and Trump.
    All working for US Chamber of Commerce, Big Tech, Soro’s, Bush family Globalist and Communist China 🇨🇳 money.
    Sad Washington DC is totally corrupted and now we know All top 5 Military general’s and state department are all totally corrupted.
    American people Won 2020 election 75 million strong !!
    Biden did not get 80 million votes!
    Demand your republican congress person and senator start demanding every state do a true Audit like Arizona!!

  23. IGNORE ALBERT HESS! … Don’t even “thumbs down” him. Addressing his post only gives attention to his ramblings! I give the same advise for the ramblings of the KKK and BLM.

  24. Maybe we should route the people left behind through India. They’re nearby and are strong allies with need to contain Pakistan, China, and the Taliban.

  25. Biden has sold America dow the toilet, Biden tries to defending the Indefensible on 9/11 by his breaking of long established US laws, against the will of the average American citizen , democrats, will look back on that decision with regret forever, the war will continue on now, since we re-equiped them with weapons of war, a victory, a place to call their own, financial incentives to continue on, thank you joe biden for your lack of wisdom, just to look good on 9/11, history will remember the bidens, because of the way we left Americans, Allies behind on the battlefield, Let’s ask the Cuban’s, the Hongkong residents,the Philippine people,Tawain people,our European allies, how they feel about your decisions, or would you ask for review the Telaban, China , Russia. The American people will not forget your decisions, they are part of history now, democrats will pay the price for your decisions at election time.

  26. I am embarrassed that so many conservative Congressmen and analysts are missing the mark in their interpretation of what happened in our withdrawal from Afghanistan. A very wise friend indicated to me last week that all of this (except the bombing) was Biden’s plan – it was not an accident, it was not his senility, it was meant to be a surrender. When I asked why, my friend observed that Biden is continuing Obama’s apology for American policy. Obama learned about American imperialism from his radical Muslim father, and the communist maternal grandfather who raised him. His foreign policy was based on appeasement in practice, and he was an internationalist. Biden is continuing that policy. In this instance, as Laura Logan on Fox News has observed, we have supported Iran, and made deals with the Muslim Brotherhood and now the Taliban. We left weapons in their hands … these were not blunders but intentional. The intended result was to know America down so that we are like the other nations. To what end? Obama detests American exceptionalism and thinks flag-waiving patriots are right-wing, Bible hugging crazies. He (and Biden and Blinken) would have the United Nations be the world’s peace keeper. We must be diminished so that power is more equally shared internationally. Everything that has occurred in the last month has been according to plan. The TV personalities who decry Biden’s incompetence are victims of their own inability to grasp or accept this reality. The sad part is, these peace loving leftists have made the world much more dangerous. Now we have a nation that will be a breeding ground for terrorists (with the continuing support of Pakistan (which is also not being addressed). We also live in a world under Biden (and I suspect Susan Rice who is Obama’s surrogate in the White House) in which the Chinese are quickly assuming our place as the world’s most powerful nation. That cannot be good for humanity.

  27. Why would you listen to anyone telling you to find another airfield? Just fly in and land the damn plane. If they tell you to depart, tell them sorry, but you are going to have to shoot us out of the sky. If they do, that is the end of the ENTIRE BIDEN ADMIN. Small price to pay, and a small risk… Biden has already sacrificed the entire USA.
