Biden Abandons Americans – Unforgivable

Why is the decision by President Biden, his Vice President, Secretaries of Defense and State, national security advisor, silent field commanders, pliant members of Congress – to abandon Americans in Afghanistan so abhorrent? It goes to the heart of who we are. That makes it unforgivable.

The phrase dates to Roman times, “Nemo resideo” or “no one left behind,” part of who we are, “We, Americans,” since our founding. Embedded, it applies to living and dead, goes well beyond the military.

When veterans come home wounded, they are tended with loyalty, care, and empathy because we “leave no one behind.” When emergency responders risk all to rescue others from burning buildings, engulfed cars, forest fires, high seas, hurricanes, and disease – it is for that: “We leave no one behind.”

When Rogers Rangers, in the French and Indian War – later as Continentals in the Revolutionary War – concluded a battle, they “left no man behind.” Thousands of heroic rescues are animated by this sacred principle.

Americans virtually breathe it with a collective voice: One life matters.

Why has every president, until now, put aside everything to defend, protect, preserve, and rescue Americans’ lives – even one? Why did FDR, in January 1945, commission the Raid at Cabanatuan, rescuing those held by Japan after the Bataan Death March?

Why did we pull all stops for sailors on the USS Squalus in 1939? Why risk all for airman Gene Hambleton, Bat 21 Bravo, shot down over Vietnam?

Why did Americans risk death to save Captain Philips on the Maersk Alabama, or Iraqi POW Jessica Lynch? Why did President Ford – despite losses – rescue the SS Mayaguez crew? President Carter attempt Operation Eagle Claw to rescue Americans? Why deploy Green Beret, Rangers, Seal Teams, and Delta Force into peril on every continent in every year of their existence to save Americans? See, List of operations conducted by Delta Force; List of operations conducted by SEAL Team Six; The Army Rangers: Missions and History; United States Army Special Forces;

Why do we search – to this day – for 30,000 fallen in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam? Or writ larger, why has America never failed to rescue our own and allies, WWI and WWII to countless modern rescues?

Why have we placed such a premium on rescue of Americans from the Revolutionary War to Patton’s Third Army in Bastogne, daring rescue of an American doctor from Afghanistan by SEALs in 2012 to SEAL Team rescue of US citizen Philip Walton in Niger in 2020. Why do we do this?

Even as civilians, we concentrate all – often risk all – for an American life. Why did Americans rush into the Twin Towers on 9-11?

Why did we care about Apollo 13? Why do 1,150 Search & Rescue teams exist across the US?

The answer forces focus. It is fundamental. We “leave no one behind” because of that precept, inner ticker, principle – that every human life is sacred, and that every American life is part of us, within the family, what we live for, what we are willing to die for – lives in all of us.

This is part of what makes us different and what makes us whole. It is not logical but love never is. It is not mechanical, robotic, mathematical, explainable by cost-benefit, return on investment or politics.

It is about heart, the soul, living to our fullest – an innate understanding of things that often escape understanding, that we are not the end, but stewards of ideals that outlive us, that we are defined to ourselves and history by our willingness to stand, serve, sacrifice if necessary lose all for who we are.

Put differently, if we are not true to who we say we are, if we will not risk all to save others if we will not be who we say we are – if we instead turn high principle into low politics, breaking faith with our fellow Americans, sworn allies, those trusted our word, then who are we?

We, Americans – have always stood with those who counted on us, who believed we were different, true to values so deeply held that no evil, no cowardice, no concocted reasoning could separate us from our True North. This is who we really are, and why we have prevailed – as a People.

Are we different?

Yes, we are. We have kept faith, as much as any society in history, with the idea that principles guide us, that we owe something indescribably gripping that calls us to a higher level, bonds us to the wellbeing of other Americans, and those to whom we give our solemn word.

Americans are not cynics but people of courage. Cheerful, we are serious when chips are down, when it is do or die when we must rise or fall on truth and our word. Never is that more so than when evil rises to challenge the conviction and to separate us from our hearts.

Not all Americans are Christian, but roughly two-thirds count themselves so. All respect the Constitution, drawn from natural law, the idea that freedom is God-given. Perhaps that is why we insist on being true, understand verses like John 15:13: “Greater love has no man than this, to lay down his life for his friends.”

Perhaps a nagging combination – our history, higher angels, sense of moral obligation, honor, integrity, and sanctity of our “word” is what makes us believe, when we say “no one left behind” – we mean it. And maybe that belief – held in every American heart – is why we feel revulsion at what has just happened. An American president has abandoned Americans – and those with whom we promised to keep faith – to face evil alone, knowing thousands will die. Unforgivable.

Removing Biden from office is NOT the solution. Look at this a a GIANT PEZ dispenser. You pop the top and get a tasteless piece of candy and then you pop the top again and get another just as tasteless piece of crap even worse than the first one.
We American will have to suffer through this ordeal but the DEMOCRATS have to OWN this disgrace AND then suffer the consequences!

I am as disgusted and angry as anyone can possibly be. Biden should be impeached and we then need to watch Giggling Harris closely and remove her as well. Who knows who will be named as VP when she moves up a sickening thought, but necessary. What Biden has done is unforgivable and he should be condemned in history. The Democrats can ignore this disaster and change the subject in an effort to move on, but most Americans who can think will never forgive him.

What about the divorce rate in America? No-fault Divorce? When and how did it start. It’s been reported to be 52% or more both in the church and outside the church? How many have been hurt and left behind, lives ruined? What does the Bible say about divorce? What is truth? America is no longer a Christian nation. But a pluralistic secular nation with many gods! And money is near the top of the list. “The ‘love’ of money is the root of all evil.”

Biden’s handling of the evacuation process, including authorizing it in the first place, is about as unAmerican and unforgivably unpatriotic as one can be. Lord, I pray that you help us out of this predicament before it brings the Nation to civil war.

He needs to be out of office! NOW! He is a puppet for someone who is totally not in America’s best interest! Be it Obama, Susan Rice, or Soros! I doubt that we will be much better with the VP, but we will just have to see! Impeach him, fire him, just do it now!

The Rosenbergs were executed for treason. Biden makes them look like teenage pranksters. In a better day and age, Biden’s head would be on Traitors’ Gate. But a single execution is too good for him. Its too lenient.

Biden’s ineptitude to be an American president, well conform to his “first helper” and “jest” Vice what? –“ka,mala ha!- ha!- Ha!-rris” as she laughter when someone ask her for a report to the American people about our southern border crisis as “special interest aliens” are among those who defy our immigration laws, and unlawful enter to our country.–As she said that’s not anything to worry about; (DHS) Secretary Mayorkas take everything under control… She “jokingly” ha!-ha!-[…] According to,,(USCBP) officials we are at great risk if Biden persist an “open borders.”

This will adversely affect our military, how many young patriotic Americans will not volunteer to join our military knowing that we no longer live by our “never leave behind” vow? Joe Biden, his cabinet and our senior military commanders have committed an unforgivable act of treason. When you no longer care for your countrymen, you no longer have a soul. These traitors are a disgrace to America. America is no longer that “shining light on a hill”. We must cast out all these traitors!

You are absolutely correct in all of your words of American integrity, bravery and decency. The obvious massive issue is that the criminals who took over our country have been in business with these communist and terrorist countries in the past and probably still are owned by them. I believe it’s all intentional, as was the biological attack virus to, hand over and destroy our country and, all that character and honor

My family has served America since 1776. And they have fought with Abraham Lincoln, served in the Civil War, died in WWI and served in WWII. My mother took a leave from teaching to serve with seven other women as USAAF military police officers while my father served in the US Navy. I would serve in the US Army, as a third generation volunteer firefighter my senior year in high school and later retire as a police officer. One thing was made very clear to me in my youth amid the American flags, those Memorial Days, noticing the ribbons on uniforms, seeing the Gold Stars in windows, the Gold Star Mothers in cars and later in combat or in black and whites on the meanest of streets – ‘We all come back or we all die together.’ It was a credo instilled in us and in me. Today, the idea that a feckless US president has bungled the planning for the evacuation of our citizens, dependents, Allies, and our Afghan loyalists in the face of a monstrous and growing evil makes me physically ill. But when I learn that this same president gave the murdering barbarians now occupying Afghanistan the names and the credentials of those who are trying to escape because he “trusts” the Taliban, more apparently than our allies because he never contacted them in advance of our sudden disappearance and country-wide retreat, borders on sheer insanity and murder – it absolutely appalls me and I must call for President Biden’s impeachment.

Mehinks Biden is trying to weaken the US military to make it less risky for the China to forcefully tale over an area in eastern Asia so that it can manufacture nuclear weaponry without risking nuclear accidents on Chinese soil. And it puts them closer to the Muslim murderers to use them against non-ORIENTAL foes and have some degree of plausible deniability. I and would have though before Biden, this would be pretty far-fetched to posit, but now …. not so far.

The hateful Progressive billionaires behind everything that Biden does have no loyalty to fellow countrymen or anyone else. They not only don’t care about leaving anyone behind, they prefer that more die in order to continue their goal of reducing population. We are not dealing with God fearing, rational people here. We are dealing with god complex, self centered fascist elites.

We can see why this depraved man had to be put into office by means of fixed ballots and rigged software by his masters in the democrat socialist organization. He and members of his regime fit the term depraved to a tee, and this abhorrent act clearly shows that these creatures are America’s internal enemies that need to be arrested and put on trial by a military tribunal.
Remember, Dirty Joe was vice president under the other false president Barry Soetoro with the Benghazi affair. So why should we be surprised that this happened?

Trust in a dRat and you’ll end up in a hole somewhere that because they turned their backs on you and left you for dead.
No sane individuals would ever consciously desire to be left behind under those circumstances.
But that’s exactly what happened in July 1969 when Mary Jo Kopechne trusted a dRat to drive her home.
In 2012, dRats ignored and left behind an American Ambassador and several others in Benghazi.
And now, once again in Afghanistan the dRats display their true cowardice to the world!

Nothing this administration does surprises me. Afghanistan being only the latest in an ever lengthening list of American citizens overseas being disregarded, ignored, left to their own devices, you name it. I have several friends that are “ex-pats” in foreign countries. When Biden was pushing to get “all” Americans vaccinated against the CCP/Wuhan (aka COVID 19) virus, my friends went to the embassy to see if there would be a plan to get “ex-pats” vaccinated. In every country, the answer was a resounding NO!!. Other countries were offering vaccines to their overseas citizens, but apparently the Biden Administration could not be bothered. What is happening in Afghanistan is a disgrace, but not surprising. To get our people out, Biden needs to be told the all voted for him

The communists in the current Democrap Party have led to this philosophy, like Melonie said, it started with cheapening life through abortion, now it progresses to leaving citizens behind, and eventually Communists just start killing dissenters.

Anyone notice how soft handed the News Media is handling all of Biden’s critical gaffs and seems to glide past the facts in relative silence. If Trump had done that, he would be barbecued on a hot spit lined with poison and held over a huge bonfire. The news media has, in general, compromised its guaranteed role of “freedom of the press” to become “propagandists for the DemocRat Party,” with some exceptions (Fox News to name one).

And the citizens in 1929 thought the stock market crash was a National disaster … and it was because with the help of the news media, measures to ease its effect were blocked to allow continued brow-beating against partisan opposition. It worked well for the Democrats until a large faction of them got political jealousy against Roosevelt for blocking their greedy path to taking charge as POTUS. Greed has a big role in the DemocRat Party … and historically pretty much has since the Civil War.

In general I’ve been leery of the honesty and integrity of the DemocRat Party for most of my adulthood. And now it has turned to great dislike, disgust, and fear. As a nation holding to a Constitutional Democracy virtually since its creation, the present day DemocRat Party has become a real and present danger of throwing that in the trash can for a Communist system.

I agree. We have a President, Vice President, Cabinet members, and the whole Biden administration deliberately and purposefully avoiding, running, attempting to escape responsibility and accountability for their choices and actions taken in accordance with abandoning our military and citizens of our country in enemy territory as well as here at home. American, wake up! We have been sold out! These people are educated in stupidity and incompetence and are no more trustworthy than the Taliban. We need to take this country back and get rid of those trying to destroy this country (ie Bernie Sanders, AOC, Talib, Omar, Schumer, Pelosi) that God has blessed so greatly! Let’s take our country back!

Is anyone truly surprised by what has happened with the biden administration? (I know, I should have capitalized biden, but I just can’t bring myself to do that.) Have we forgotten Benghazi already? What happened in Benghazi was the pre-cursor to what we’re seeing play out today. We have the left in full control of our government. Forget about the feckless administration of Ford, the inept administration of Carter and the immoral administration of Clinton. Those were trial runs by the puppet masters of the obama/biden controllers. We are a new nation, where the lunatics’ are running the asylum. We have a defective congress that does not listen to the people. The justice department serves the master, not the people. Despite the apparent conservative tilt on the Supreme Court, they have on many occasions, failed to uphold the Constitution of the United States, instead, caving to the left. And make no mistake, they( the left), plan to run it full speed straight into the ground. There will be few survivors, those few will be the elites that plan to be the overlords in the new communist society with the rest totally subservient to them.

Am LIVID @the POS ‘so-called president,’ VP KamelHair, PruneFace Pelosi, etc. and the rest of the Damn Dumb Dems for so mismanaging the Afghanistan withdrawal and thinking nothing of leaving American citizens and our devoted Afghan helpers behind to be slaughtered. Biden already has the blood of 13 US servicemembers on his hands — he is a traitor and a murderer. Time to overthrow this illegal regime and move back toward being ‘America’ again. Trump, DeSantis, Gowdy, Haley, so many loyal patriot names come to mind. Time to take America back… with force if necessary.

Stupid, incompetent and just un-trust worthy explains the current administration in Washington. Biden and his minions need to answer to the American people, not the Taliban, China or Russia. The world and our allies are looking at America with shame and skepticism. Have we as a nation lost our will to fight for what is right. I fear many of us have. This is not the country I grew up in, and it’s not one I want to live in under these conditions. We need to take America back from the Socialist Democrats who are destroying our nation.

Let us raise our voices in unison in a cry to impeach Joe Biden. Write, call, text email your Congressional Representative and insist that the House of Representatives initiate Articles of Impeachment against the President. Lets not simply use our voices in anger on AMAC-lets raise them where they might do some good. And remind your representative that you VOTE, and it won’t be for he/she if he/she does nothing in this situation because that means he/she is PART of the PROBLEM!

What are We The People waiting for ? The election was proven to be a farce, the newly “elected regime” is taking our country, our rights, and our freedoms! To them our Constitution means nothing.
Why have they opened our borders to terrorists, criminals and those infected with disease, only to come here and get on welfare, medicaid while we the people are burdened with the cost ? Since when do we arm our enemies and leave our citizens and military to those who torture and kill them ?
Why do we waste time and allow this horror continue” Lets give a vote of no confidence to a falsely elected president and all the politicians who do not represent the People of the United States!
No longer can I watch as Biden and his puppeteers commit treason on a daily basis! They should all be arrested, tried, locked up, and throw the key away!
Just a few months ago the United States was a world power with many allies and the example of strength and freedom.. Now look where we are. People don’t let this happen.

I’ve been contemplating what I’ve seen on the news the last few days and I’m appalled. I thought, who have we been fighting in Afghanistan for the past two decades? Who did our commander in chief put in control of security for people going in to the airport to be evacuated? And, to whom did he give a list of names, American and Afghanis that need to be evacuated ????? And the answer to all three questions is the TALEBAN!!! JUST HOW STUPID CAN ONE MAN BE???????????

I could not have expressed it any better. Basement Joe and his entire administration had they had an INTEGRITY would and should resign. I served, albeit a long time ago 1953-1961 in the Marine Corps, I would never believe that any American let alone the current President could even contemplate such an action. In short it is disgusting and demonstrates just what kind of a low life our POS President really is!
