At 10:00 AM this morning, President Biden held press conference on the pandemic.  Of course, he attacked unvaccinated Americans again.  But after finishing his remarks, Biden took a question about his responsibility for the chaos at our southern border.  Rather than acknowledging that his radical open border policies are a complete disaster, Biden launched into a tirade against the brave Border Patrol agents on horseback who attempted to protect our border. 

You'd have to be a hermit to not be familiar with Lee Greenwood's hit, "God Bless The USA."  He wrote the song in 1983 to unite Americans and instill pride in the country.   Ronald Reagan loved the song and played it at the 1984 Republican National Convention.  It surged to the top of the charts in the aftermath of 9/11.  Greenwood was appointed to the National Council on the Arts by Republican President George W. Bush.  He was reappointed by liberal Democrat Barack Obama and by populist conservative Donald Trump.  But Greenwood was notified yesterday that the Biden Administration will… Read More

News broke yesterday that a group of Haitian migrants hijacked a bus that was taking them from the encampment under the Del Rio bridge, otherwise known as "Bidenville," to local airports for deportation flights.  According to whistleblowers, this has happened multiple times. Another group of illegal Haitian migrants attacked an airline crew and ICE agents after they landed in Port-au-Prince Haiti. I did not hear one Biden Administration official or one Democrat leader in Congress condemn these attacks by people who illegally entered our country.  Not one word.

he past week has been a colossal disaster for Joe Biden.  But if you're listening to the "mainstream" media, you probably don't realize just how bad it's been. President Biden was completely surprised by 15,000 Haitians showing up at our southern border.  Like all the other illegal immigrants crossing our border, most are unskilled and will end up on welfare.  Virtually none of them are vaccinated, and many illegal aliens are refusing to be vaccinated.  Joe Biden insists that you get vaccinated or lose your job.  But he's not forcing illegal aliens to get vaccinated, even in the middle… Read More

What's happening now at the southern border is unbelievable! We spend approximately $700 billion a year on national defense.  That's more than eight other leading nations combined.  What is all that money for if we can't or won't even defend our own borders?! We're telling Japan, South Korea and Taiwan that we will defend their borders from an invasion.  But we have leaders in the White House today who won't defend America from a slow-motion invasion of Third World "migrants."

I've heard friends and some Republican officials say, "I don't agree with Joe Biden, but he's a nice guy."  Well, it's driving me crazy.  Joe Biden is not a nice guy.  Just ask my good friend Justice Clarence Thomas, who was viciously smeared by Joe Biden. Biden may seem like your grandfather when he's whispering into the microphone.  But a nice guy doesn't insist that you pay for someone else's abortion.  A nice guy doesn't demonize people over vaccines and try to get them fired from their jobs.

National security issues have dominated the headlines in recent weeks.  The southern border gets worse every day.  (See below.)  The left's push toward socialism is accelerating.  But I just want to take a moment to remind you of what has been done over the last eight months to attack and undermine the Judeo-Christian foundation of America.

Do you remember the extraordinary success the Biden Administration had in withdrawing from Afghanistan?  Of course, you don't.  The whole world saw what a total disaster it was.  Yet Joe Biden's Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, went to Capitol Hill this week and shocked Democrats and Republicans when he insisted the withdrawal was an extraordinary success.  Once Blinken stopped spouting Biden's propaganda, he was forced to confess a few details about this so-called "success." 

I don't know about you, but I'm still furious about President Biden's outrageous speech on the coronavirus last week.  That was a dangerous speech – in some ways even more dangerous than the virus itself. As we have previously noted, Biden argued two completely contradictory points.  He demanded that everyone get the vaccine because it saves lives.  Research shows that few people get seriously ill after taking the vaccine.  We also know that the risk of "serious breakthrough infections" – fully vaccinated people getting infected and becoming seriously ill – is extremely low. But then… Read More

In spite of the dark events in Afghanistan in recent weeks or maybe because of them, there appeared to be a robust surge of patriotism on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.  I hope it continues.  And I hope it is sustained by a renewed commitment to defend the values of faith, family and freedom – especially as we watch Afghanistan descend into darkness.  Progress and prosperity are never guaranteed. 

Yesterday afternoon, President Biden addressed the nation to unveil his latest plan to combat COVID-19.  Remember, he promised us last year that he had a plan to "crush COVID" and save the economy.  Well, he lied – 241,000 more people have died from COVID since Joe Biden took office. Biden's new big idea basically boils down to brute government force.  He issued a series of new mandates, ordering federal employees and approximately 80 million private sector workers to get vaccinated.  In doing so, he proved that he lied back in December when he said he would not mandate vaccines.  White… Read More

No, this isn't an item about the weather or climate change, although it is about the changing political climate in America.  In yesterday's report, I outlined the devastating start to the Biden presidency – how in less than eight months Biden went from sky-high approval ratings and hopes of a return to normalcy to disaster and division. As one columnist put it, "Joe Biden went full Carter faster than Jimmy did!"  It took Jimmy Carter four years to wreck the economy and have a major foreign policy disaster.  Biden did it in less than eight months.

A little over seven months ago, Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States, allegedly with the support of 80 million voters.  He took office with sky-high approval ratings, pledging to unite the American people.  Now just over seven months later, not only is his political honeymoon over, but he has collapsed in the polls. His approval rating is down to 41%, and polling shows that one in five Biden voters now say they regret their vote.  What happened?

The incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan has been a national embarrassment and a political disaster for President Biden.  His approval ratings have tanked.  One credible poll has his approval rating down to 41%.  He obviously wants to move on and hopes that the American people will forget about this.   That doesn't seem likely.  A recent poll found that 20% of voters regret casting their ballots for Joe Biden.  And Afghanistan is an ongoing disaster. 

I was on a great call yesterday with President Trump and many other faith leaders. The president sounded rested, energetic, really on his game, and raring to go.  He talked for more than 30 minutes on a wide variety of subjects.  The record call was "off the record," so I can't go into the details.  But suffice it to say that Trump has not missed a step, and he remains deeply concerned about our country.

Two top officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have resigned citing political pressure from the White House to push COVID booster shots without appropriate scientific reviews.  There is increasing pushback from the medical and scientific community regarding the need for booster shots.  (Here, here, here and here.) Eleven other officials told Politico that there is "growing exasperation" with the Biden Administration, and more resignations may be coming.  The left-wing media outlet adds that the FDA "is facing a potential mutiny among its staff and outside vaccine advisers."

Virtually no one in America is proud of how we left Afghanistan.  In spite of the heroism of 6,000 U.S. troops and the sacrificial deaths of 13 military personnel, Biden's Afghanistan fiasco has deeply demoralized the country.  But our tone-deaf president angrily went to a microphone yesterday to do a victory lap around all the unnecessary pain, suffering and betrayal that he set into motion. It appears to most Americans that 20 years of blood and treasure were just wasted.  To our veterans: Your service was not wasted.  You gave our country 20 years without another 9/11.  God bless… Read More

Yesterday, just before 3:30 PM ET, the last of our heroic soldiers left Kabul.  The last American soldier to board the last U.S. flight out of Afghanistan was Major General Chris Donahue, commander of the 82nd Airborne Division. Not long after, celebrating Taliban jihadists, dressed in American military uniforms thoughtfully supplied to them by President Biden and the Pentagon brass (SARCASM ALERT), fired their weapons in the air and rushed into the Kabul airport hangars to inspect their new military equipment. Other videos poured out of Afghanistan showing Taliban fighters celebrating… Read More

That's the best estimate of how many Americans are likely to be left behind in Afghanistan, but no one knows for sure.  Unofficially, about 117,000 people have been airlifted out of Afghanistan.  The overwhelming majority of them are Afghans refugees, some without any paperwork at all, but we couldn't get every American out.  The Biden Administration assures us that they have assurances from the Taliban that the radical Islamists will cooperate in getting any remaining Americans home in the days and weeks ahead.  Seriously. 

Afghan officials report that 169 people were killed in yesterday's attack at the Kabul airport.  Among them were 13 U.S. military personnel.  Eighteen servicemen were injured.  The attack led many of our NATO allies to abruptly end their evacuation flights.  A British spokesman said they shut down their processing center this morning, and will only evacuate those people currently inside the airport.  The last British flights will leave today. The danger is far from over. Hundreds of ISIS fighters are in Kabul.  Yesterday's devastating attack will only whet their appetite for more blood. 

Last night, as U.S. military forces were scrambling to evacuate Americans from Kabul by the August 31st deadline, officials once again warned American citizens to stay away from the Kabul airport. They also warned those at the gates to leave immediately due to a specific threat from ISIS. This morning, ISIS attacked the Kabul airport in what the Pentagon described as a "complex attack."  There are reports of multiple explosions, and at least one suicide bomber.  The numbers continue to change, but as of now reports indicate that 11 U.S. Marines and one Navy medic were killed. 

The White House announced yesterday that President Biden would address the nation at 1:00 PM.  His statement was billed as an update on the withdrawal in Afghanistan. More than four hours later, Biden began his remarks by trumpeting the socialist victory that Speaker Nancy Pelosi pulled off in the House yesterday, setting the stage for a massive, inflationary spending binge.  Biden had just sent the CIA director to negotiate with a terrorist group.  The Taliban essentially spit in his eye and refused to give us "permission" to take any extra time to rescue our citizens from Afghanistan… Read More

This is a sad day, my friends.  Joe Biden has surrendered to the Taliban. It has been clear for days now that the Biden Administration so badly botched its Afghanistan withdrawal plan that it had no plans to safely rescue all Americans in the country by August 31st.  And I'm not the only one saying that. Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democrat chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, emerged yesterday from an intelligence briefing and said it was "very unlikely" that the Biden Administration could get every American out of Afghanistan by the end of the month.  Schiff also warned that the… Read More

As President Biden's botched withdrawal plan goes from bad to worse, the White House is in full damage control mode.  The president who intended to continue his summer vacation was forced to address the nation again over the weekend. Yet every time Biden speaks, he makes it worse.  And administration officials don't even seem to be talking to each other.  For example, Biden has repeatedly justified his hasty retreat by claiming that Al Qaeda is no longer in Afghanistan.  He's wrong.  The Pentagon contradicted Biden's claim Friday afternoon.  Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said, "We… Read More

I warned yesterday that we could be facing the worst hostage crisis in our nation's history.  I thought about it some more, and it occurred to me that we are already facing the worst hostage crisis in our nation's history.  Thousands of Americans are trapped in what is now enemy territory.  Many are hundreds of miles from Kabul.  And our own leaders are already talking about these trapped Americans as if they are hostages.

I woke up this morning with a thought many Americans likely share:  Something is deeply wrong at the White House.  Something seems to be wrong with the president.  And you're right to be worried. The Afghan pullout continues to be a disaster.  As many as 15,000 Americans are scattered all over that country, and the Biden Administration just said they can't guarantee the safety of our citizens who have to get to the airport on their own.  Short of a miracle, we could end up with the biggest hostage crisis in the history of our country.

We're just seven months into his presidency and already Joe Biden has committed the greatest military and national security blunder in modern American history.  In 1975, America suffered a black eye when the world watched the fall of Saigon and the desperate South Vietnamese trying to escape the communists.  It took years to recover from that debacle. 

After horrifying images of Afghans and Americans running for their lives in Kabul stunned the world, President Biden decided to interrupt his vacation and address the nation.  His speech was too little too late, and it was filled with lies. If you think I'm being too harsh, CNN's Jake Tapper said Biden's speech was "full of finger pointing and blame."  Former Obama CIA Director Leon Panetta compared Biden's Afghan debacle to the Bay of Pigs disaster, and said that Biden needs to "take responsibility."

I'm sad and beyond angry, and you should be too, watching the scandalous disaster unfolding in Afghanistan.  Yes, it is a scandal.  It's happening because we have cowards at the highest levels of government.  Sadly, too many military leaders are more interested in satisfying the left than they are in being worthy of leading our brave troops into battle. I can't imagine the emotions that millions of veterans, active-duty military, their families and the families of the fallen are feeling today.  So, my message is for them.

I am not for endless wars. Trump had an organized plan to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan while keeping the Taliban at bay by the use of sustained U.S. air power. Biden has completely botched it, and the Taliban does not fear him.    The situation is degenerating so rapidly that Biden this morning, before leaving on vacation, ordered thousands of fresh troops to help evacuate embassy personnel and other Americans. Separately, Great Britain is sending 600 troops to support British nationals leaving the country.
