Nancy Pelosi, House Ditch Town As Joe Biden’s Afghanistan Crisis Worsens


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representatives are skipping town as Joe Biden’s Afghanistan crisis is worsening by the day.

“There is an ongoing and high threat of terrorist attack. Do not travel to Kabul Hamid Karzai International Airport. If you are in the area of the airport, move away to a safe location,” the United Kingdom’s government told citizens there, Fox News reported.

“Because of security threats outside the gates of Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so,” the U.S. Embassy in Kabul said to Americans.

Fox News added:

A senior U.S. official elaborated to Fox News, saying the threat by ISIS-K or another affiliate of a vehicle bomb or suicide bomber has been measured as “more likely than unlikely” for over the last 24 hours.

But the House of Representatives in its two days in session this week took no votes on Afghanistan-related legislation. The only major votes it took were on a Democrat-backed elections bill and a procedural “rule” that advances Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending plan while scheduling a vote for the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tore into Pelosi for refusing to “focus” on the crisis.

McCarthy said Pelosi was around the U.S. Capitol “late into the night” working on Democrats’ spending agenda but “not one moment of that time was spent on getting Americans home from Afghanistan.”


McCarthy continued: “What do you think those Americans were doing late at night, trying to find a path to get to that airport?… Not one moment was spent on – not one dollar was passed this time in Congress. Five trillion just deemed not debated, none of that money going to help an American get back.”

“The president told us that the Taliban would let you go to the airport. The Taliban is now shutting it down. We watched that people aren’t being beaten – but that’s the report that we’re getting,” McCarthy said.

“Why wouldn’t we spend time on that in Congress? Why are we departing now? The speaker has control over that,” he added.

The United Kingdom’s Houses of Parliament officially voted to hold Joe Biden in contempt over his disastrous handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Senate Democrats are planning to investigate the Biden administration’s “flawed” American withdrawal from Afghanistan.


The Senate Intelligence and Foreign Relations Committees — both chaired by Democrats — are planning to investigate the catastrophic withdrawal.

Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott suggested using the 25th Amendment to remove Biden from the presidency.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has slammed Biden for his handling of the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which have descended into chaos over the weekend as Taliban forces seized much of the country.

McCarthy is now calling for investigations into Biden’s handling of the crisis.

Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she is drafting Articles of Impeachment against Biden as the debacle on his Afghanistan withdrawal of troops continues.

Kamala Harris is also reportedly refusing to accept any responsibility.

A source reportedly said that Harris refused to be part of addressing the American people after the terrorist group took over Kubal, the capital of Afghanistan.

A source said Harris screamed: “They will not pin this sh*t on me!”
