There is no denying that the strategic choices that Joe Biden made in the expedition of a US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan are going to haunt him for some time, as it not only handed the terrorism-adjacent Taliban a big win on the world’s stage, but it also paved the way for a number of explosive attacks by other Jihadist groups.
This is now a major piece of the Biden legacy, no matter where that legacy goes from here, and even if that includes being removed from office for his incompetence.
U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn, a freshman Republican from North Carolina, is calling on Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Biden from office following the deadly, botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
“Our nation is at a crisis point,” he wrote in a letter to Harris and the rest of the Cabinet Thursday.
He warned of China’s ambitions on the world stage, the resurgent Russia, rising inflation, chaos at the southern border and other global predicaments threatening the U.S. — and argued that confronting them will take strong, decisive leadership.
“Joe Biden’s physical inability to lead is not a political talking point — it’s a demonstrable fact,” Cawthorn told Fox News on Thursday evening. “He is not mentally fit to serve as president of the United States.”
And then, sternly:
“I cannot sit idly by and watch the nation that I love spiral into death and devastation because our leader cannot discharge his duties,” he said. “There is no time to wait, the time for action is now.”
In his letter to Harris, he wrote that as a member of the president’s inner circle and a former presidential primary debate opponent, she has seen clearer than anyone Biden’s “current cognitive limitations.”
“As the person that works closest with the president, you are also the one who best knows the differences between the perception the West Wing wants to project and the ugly reality,” he added.
Cawthorn has been a frequent target of the far-left, who have long suggested that he himself bears some responsibility for the events of January 6th.
The White House has not responded to Cawthorn’s letter as of this writing.
