In this morning's update (see here), we told you that Republican AND Democrats don't think every American will be evacuated from Afghanistan by August 31. A couple of hours ago, Grassfire received an email alert from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasting Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats for their botched handling of the crisis.
At a press conference today, McCarthy criticized the so-called Commander-in-Chief's actions as "disastrous" and "dangerous," insisting that Mr. Biden's failures "run the risk of leaving Americans behind in a Taliban stronghold." The highest-ranking Republican in the House added:
"Less than 24 hours ago, President Biden made the decision to not shift the August 31st deadline to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan. With that announcement, the message he sent around the world is that under his leadership, the United States now caves to the demands of terrorists.
"And with the very real prospect of thousands of Americans still stranded in Afghanistan on September 1st, the Biden administration is willing to accept the fact they will be leaving Americans behind in a Taliban-stronghold. This President’s misguided decisions run the risk of creating the largest international hostage situation we have ever had to face....
"The most embarrassing part though is that he refused to take questions, and turned his back to walk away – an image that has come to define his presidency. He has turned his back on our own citizens stranded in Afghanistan. He has turned his back on our allies and partners. He has turned his back on his duties as Commander-in-Chief."
McCarthy also slammed the House's top Democrat: "Speaker Pelosi called an 'emergency session' this week. Not to try to get accountability for how many Americans we still have left in Afghanistan. Not to help figure out how to get our own citizens home. Not to help our partners and allies, but to pass a $5 trillion liberal wish list. ... You deserve leaders in government who will stop the situation in Afghanistan from spiraling further into chaos, and that is what House Republicans will remain focused on."
If you're outraged by the Biden regime's lies, failures and weakness, Grassfire wants to empower you to make your voice heard. Sign the national petition to "BRING OUR PEOPLE HOME!" Take immediate action to demand GOP Senators "take the baton" from House Republicans and pressure Joe Biden to evacuate EVERY American from Afghanistan ASAP.
Thousands of American citizens are STILL TRAPPED under Taliban control. Joe Biden MUST do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get EVERY one of them home. The "Commander-in-Chief" continues to fail, lie and literally turn his back on the Afghanistan crisis and on those it's hurting the most. Mr. Biden is putting American lives at risk, and that's simply UNACCEPTABLE.
"[We] watch the president have a press conference and walk away afterwards, and 30 minutes later [members of Congress] have a conference call with the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State and the Joint Chiefs of Staff where they contradict what the president just told us," McCarthy said. "If I was a Democrat, I’d stop playing politics and focus on the American people."
This is NOT a partisan issue. So please, add your name to the "Bring Our People Home!" national petition now. When Grassfire reaches 20,000 signatures, we'll deliver your petition to Republican leadership on Capitol Hill. Thanks, in advance, for making your voice heard today.
For life, liberty and limited government,
The Grassfire Team
