Not only has President Biden been working behind the scenes with the Taliban, but he has now admitted to it. Biden claims the Taliban are our allies, and we are now left to rely on THEM for OUR protection. On the other hand, our WOKE Generals seem to be too busy focusing on diversity, inclusion, and white rage, instead of the crisis unfolding in Afghanistan. This is, tragically, all at the cost of Americans lives stateside and in Afghanistan. Airborne Ranger qualified Captain, GOP Congressional Candidate in Georgia, and Author, ‘A Higher Calling: Pursuing Love, Faith, and Mount Everest for a Greater Purpose,’ Harold Earls, joins the show to break down the crisis in Afghanistan, as he shares his take on what ‘no man left behind means for him.’ You can also learn more at earls.org.
Biden has turned his back on America. His lack of response and leadership in this crisis is so appalling, that it’s hard to even wrap your mind around. Does he really think the Taliban have our best interest at heart? How incompetent is he? They are now in control of billions of dollars of our U.S. military equipment and gear, yet they are going to work with us to try and help us? None of this makes sense, and it’s truly a tragedy at the hands of our administration. Joe Collins III, California Congressional Candidate (R), and U.S. Navy Veteran, details Biden’s lack of response in Afghanistan, and how he is taking action to impeach Biden.
