Either four of America’s top generals committed perjury before Congress today, or Biden told a bald-faced lie to the people

In the midst of the Afghanistan surrender debacle last month, Joe Biden went for a softball interview with a Democrat partisan news reporter. As always, the President struggled to put words together. Finally, the reporter asked Biden point blank a leading question he could answer with a simple yes or no:

“So no one told — your military advisers did not tell you, “No, we should just keep 2,500 troops. It’s been a stable situation for the last several years. We can do that. We can continue to do that”?

Biden answered: “No. No one said that to me that I can recall.”

In testimony to Congress today, those military advisors directly contradicted Biden. General Kenneth McKenzie, Commander of the United States Central Command, testified under oath: “I recommended that we maintain 2,500 troops in Afghanistan.” The General testified that he gave that recommendation personally to Biden.

McKenzie’s testimony is consistent with the testimony of General Scott Miller, the commander of U.S. Forces Afghanistan until July. General Miller testified that he recommended to Biden that a few thousand troops be left in Afghanistan to keep the peace.

McKenzie testified that he was present when the Miller made that recommendation to Biden and he was “confident that the president heard all the recommendations and listened to them very thoughtfully.”

A third General contradicted Biden, namely Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the highest-ranking officer in the armed forces. Milley testified that he thought, “back in the fall of 2020, and remained consistent throughout, that we should keep a steady state of 2,500 and it could bounce up to 3,500, maybe, something like that, in order to move toward a negotiated solution.” 

The Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, testified that the Generals’ “input was received by the president and considered by the president for sure.”

So which is it? Did Biden lie to the American people or did four of the highest-ranking military men in the nation commit perjury in lying under oath to Congress? If the latter, those generals should be in the brig.

But we all know it’s not the Generals who are lying. It’s Biden.

Biden tried to wriggle out of his catastrophic misjudgments that cost American and Afghan lives by lying that his Generals failed to give him good advice. In doing so, he not only lied to us but wrongly threw under the bus his Generals — four men who have devoted their careers to serving the country — to save his own political hide.

Joe Biden is a horrible, horrible person.

  1. In Buzz Patterson’s book “Dereliction of Duty” he talks of the Old Gard reading the writing on the wall seeing many mediocre Officers getting obvious political promotions and took retirement. Obama dumped close to 200 high ranking officers if I recall, they built this military Leadership. I think our issues stem from there.

  2. Dereliction of Duty is by H.R. McMaster- about the failure of the Jt. Chiefs to confront LBJ before plunging into Vietnam. The book was on the Chief of Staff of the Army’s Reading List in the early 2000s. All of them should have read it at some point. I doubt Austin has, Milley – maybe – in between reading books on white rage. What a bunch of spineless cowards, who are more concerned about their rank and prestige than doing their job and standing up to sleepy Joe. Sad.

    • To be fair, he can recall vividly his epic confrontation with Corn Pop, whom he slew with the jawbone of an ass (or perhaps he “strapped” him?) — back when the distinction between good and evil was emblazoned like chiaroscuro in his bold young spirit.

  3. He didn’t save his hide, either. It will be evident soon enough that being caught in even a flagrant lie means nothing to the CIA-Biden Junta minions. If fact, they will pursue one for calling them on it.

    Some observations:

    1- Were Austin, McKenzie, and Milley men of honor, LTC Sheller would not be mewed up.

    2- COCOM Commander is a line job. Line jobs above O2 have command authority. McKenzie is a COCOM commander. COCOM commanders answer to two people only: SecDef and POTUS.

    3- JCS Chairman is a staff job. Staff jobs have no command authority. CJCS is an advisor to SedDef and POTUS.

    4- Milley weasels in saying he is out of the chain of command but in the chain of communication. He wants to think chain of communication includes command authority of some degree but he does not want to assert that he has command responsibility.

    5- Pelosi was trying to stampede senior DOD mil-side (civ-side is the DOD majority, by far, almost all Junta) into creating a D.C. bloodbath D-R UniParty could blame on Trump, premise being Trump was about to nuke CCP, which was a lie. She called Milley because she knew he hated Trump and Miller could not be induced to attack Americans for supporting their POTUS. But he chickened out. Now he wants to present as standing by his statutory authority and role, which did not and do not include command authority. The man has no honor.

    6- D-R UniParty were hoping to reprise the clearing of the Bonus Marchers only with lots of blood in the streets. Their desires were frustrated, and in any case, the circumstances were not the same now as then. In fact, they were reversed. After Communists and August heated them up, American Bonus Marchers tried to overthrow D.C. In this case, D.C. tried to overthrow American patriots.

    7- Neither Austin, McKenzie, nor Milley resigned in protest upon receiving the order to abandon Kabul. These are men of ambition, not honor.

  5. It’s pretty thin for Biden and his apologists to say, “They may have advised me, multiple times over a period of many months as they say, and I’m sure I would have deliberated over such advice as any responsible president would in connection with matters of life and death, but I’m just saying that I don’t recall it.”

    Everyone will have to conclude that he’s truly lost his mind, or he’s lying to us yet again. I’ll take either one.

  6. In video of the committee meeting today, Senator Blackburn burns stars. That I see she has two sessions, the first early on, fairly ordinary but on point. The second, towards the end, is historic. In 78 years I have never seen or heard anything like it. It is extempore from the heart. She prepped the facts, obviously, but the assembly is on-site and breathtakingly powerful. She speaks, she acts simple Anglo-Saxon language and syntax everyone understands immediately in their souls. No doubt print versions will be shared, but the video only can convey the power of her expression. C-Span’s split screen of Blackburn on one half and Milley on the other has it all.


  7. Integrity and Honor. What should a military leader do when the President disregards advice that they believe will result in disaster? There have been times in our past when a resignation or resignations would have been the result as it is the only way to make the public and politicians know there is a disagreement. As the CIC the President have every right to disregard advice but what should a real leader do? Resignation may reduce your pension and probably kills any chance of lucrative board seats and/or million dollars consulting fees. But then personal sacrifice is part and parcel of military service. Or is that only for the grunts? We know the answer.

  8. As Michael Burke stated so memorably, “horrible, horrible” exists because good men do nothing. Clearly the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will do and say nothing about this man, proving that they are neither good nor, in all too many cases, even men.

    • In case my analogy between the military establishment and the world’s most prominent religious establishment isn’t clear, the same institutional rot prevails in both. One no longer believes in Christ, the other no longer believes in America. In the ranks of both, a remnant can be found, which must step forth.

  9. Yes … those generals should be in the brig.

    Just like Marine Lt. Col Stuart Scheller right now at the USMC Brig at Camp Lejeune.

    Lt. Col. Scheller has honor though … he properly questioned the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal and retreat demanded by Jackass Joe Biden. Biden has been in politics since the early 1970s. This is the kind of crap we get in America from a political hack with some five decades of experience.

    I’m guessing these generals must approve of Scheller’s brig confinement, otherwise he wouldn’t be there right now.

    The stink and taint of Biden has contaminated these generals and now no amount of wash, rinse and spin will get this smell out of their uniforms.

    The generals … if they had honor, should have resigned the moment they received Biden’s assclown orders to give Afghanistan to the Taliban, and now to all the other Islamist terrorist forces too.

    Does the pro-feminist and pro-LGBTQ Biden Administration feel smug and proud about their “extraordinary success” in withdrawing and retreating from Afghanistan? Now the Taliban are raping, subjugating and forcefully enslaving the girls and women of Afghanistan while any few self-identified Afghani LGBTQ types are hiding in fear of certain cruel tortures and mandatory executions.

    Biden should pin some more medals and ribbons onto these barrel chested generals. How about awards and decorations for Women’s Rights in Afghanistan and a rainbow colored medal for advancing Afghan LGBTQ?

    In the meantime … thank you for your service Lt. Col. Scheller, the apparently one diamond in the rough.


  10. When these active and retired GOs sat down across the candle-lit tables from their respective wives this evening, their wives started in with something along these lines:

    “Sweetie, YOU, YOU, YOU NUMBSKULL, you just got undone by a little old senator. A FEMALE! And I mean undone, tongue-lashed before the world’s millions, on split screen so they could see your face as she dug your grave. And you sat there and took it. YOU SAT THERE AND TOOK IT! For God’s sake — PAY ATTENTION TO ME — when MacArthur was CSA and took a beating like that from House Democrats, who wanted to abolish the Army’s Officer Corps, he stood up and left the room. He told the honorable representatives, ‘Gentlemen, you have insulted me. I in my profession am as high as you in yours. When you are ready to apologize, I shall return!’ But you, You, YOU and those nitwits you like to work with just sat there in front the world, the WHOLE WORLD, tongue-tied like a two-year-old at a fraternity bash, all your reputation for bullying flushed down the drain in a matter of seconds. AND BY YOU! YOU DID IT! You took a beating EVERYBODY could understand. I’ve NEVER been so HUMILIATED in my life! At least MacArthur was trying to protect the Army. You, You Fool, YOU were sitting there babbling gobbledygook trying to protect your privileges. Everyone saw it. And you just threw them all away. THREW THEM ALL AWAY!!! And you threw me away. You threw my prestige away. And a little old lady did it to you. To US. Don’t you get that? To US, to our reputation, my career! She did you in, mister big shot soldier man. An old female senator from a no-account state. She got your number and did you in on live TV. My God, what were you thinking? Now there is no one who can put you back together again. Who would even want to after that performance? I sure as hell don’t. Even if I did, I can’t. You gave yourself no out. You gave ME no out. All the girls are looking at me now and saying behind my back, ‘Jeez, I’m glad I’m not her.’ You’re disgusting. Now, I’ve said my peace. Enjoy your steak and cognac, and I’ll have the help fix your favorite breakfast in the morning. You pathetic old bully. You can’t even rise to the occasion. Now I have to live with your colossal stupidity. God, I hate you. You ruined my life today. Are you happy?”

  11. I am getting very blabby regarding this post. I hope our gracious host indulges my loquacity in this instance. I beg leave to mention, if I may, that, in addition to known human weaknesses — envy chief among them — motivating this particular national infusion of truth, production of embarrassment, and, I am sure, inflection for our betterment, is a conceptual history going by the name of Revolution in Military Affairs. FWIW, a brief discussion, with links, of RMA is here: https://theological-geography.net/?p=58532
