Let’s begin with two knowns. One, the abject gall of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has no bounds; particularly when one looks at his nearly 50 years in Washington, D.C., bereft of any major accomplishments and full of distortions, bullcrap boasts, plagiarism, and outright lies. Second, Gen. Colin Powell was an exemplary military man who broke boundaries, established standards, and planned and executed victories in war.
Now, let us continue.
Powell died on Monday at age 84 from complications related to COVID-19, said his family in a statement. While Powell was fully vaccinated, he also had multiple myeloma, a cancer that suppresses the body’s immune response, as noted by U.S. News & World Report.
Biden, as head of state — with “Dr.” Jill in tow, of course — mourned the death of his “dear friend,” calling Powell a “patriot of unmatched honor and dignity,” as reported by Fox News.
Biden’s words about Powell were true. The same cannot be said of him.
Saying he “worked closely” with Powell while he (Biden) was in the Senate, Biden’s platitudes went like this, as transcribed by Fox:
“Over our many years working together – even in disagreement – Colin was always someone who gave you his best and treated you with respect. [He] embodied the highest ideals of both warrior and diplomat.
“He was committed to our nation’s strength and security above all. [His military experience gave him the perspective] better than anyone that military might alone was not enough to maintain our peace and prosperity.”
Biden continued — with complete lack of self-awareness:
“From his front-seat view of history, advising presidents and shaping our nation’s policies. Colin led with his personal commitment to the democratic values that make our country strong.
“Time and again, he put country before self, before party, before all else— in uniform and out— and it earned him the universal respect of the American people.”
OK, I can’t continue reading this, let alone writing it.
Pres. Biden remembers Colin Powell as a “friend” and “trusted confidant” following the death of the former secretary of state.

How can that guy say the above? Clueless to the reality of not only his own uselessness but also the destruction he purposely continues to wreak on this country? Easy, he’s Joe Biden. Who, I might add, in his addled state (and seemingly getting worse by the day), has willfully allowed himself to become the organ grinder monkey of the radical Left.
Don’t misunderstand; I had no intention of using the death of a distinguished American who made a difference in his life as an excuse to blister Biden. God knows those opportunities abound, daily — by focusing solely on Biden himself as he stumbles and mumbles from one self-created crisis to another.
That said, I was damn near angry as I watched the guy’s pathetic platitudes Monday morning, as I simultaneously thought about the disaster he created in Afghanistan and how Colin Powell would not have left Americans behind [but — but — but — it was “only” 200 Americans or less] enemy lines and at the mercy of the most brutal terrorist organization on the planet.
Nor would Colin Powell have walked away from strategic Bagram Air Base in the middle of the night, screwed America’s NATO allies blind, nor left behind Afghanis who helped America throughout the war, many of whom now face unspeakable atrocities.
Biden did that. The “patriot of unmatched honor and dignity” would not have. Soldier, civilian, or otherwise.
There. I’m done. Rest in peace, General. You deserve it.
