Blinken Says ‘Several Thousand’ Green Card Holders and 100 Americans Still Left Behind

On Monday, Secretary of State Blinken dropped a bit of a bombshell that proves just how badly this administration has been lying about those left behind.

Blinken admitted that there are still several thousand green card holders still in Afghanistan.

Additionally, he stated there are still roughly 100 American citizens still here.

Can’t Be Trusted

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) put Blinken right on the spot.

He asked Blinken, “What is the number of Americans who are in Afghanistan as of the last update you received?”

Blinken responded, “Congressman, going back to this weekend, we had about 100 American citizens in contact with us who seek to leave Afghanistan. Those are the Americans we’re working with.”

He went on to say they don’t have an exact number, which translates to they really don’t have a clue, which I will get into more of in just a second.

Zeldin continued, “How many green card holders?”

Blinken responded, “Green card holders is something we don’t track directly.

“So what we’ve done is we’ve solicited people, if they are green card holders, to let us know.

“I think the best estimates are that there are several thousand green card holders in Afghanistan.”

The number regarding green card holders is atrocious, but the American citizen number is just a flat-out lie.

After the withdrawal was complete, several planes were held up by the Taliban.

All the while, Blinken and this administration stated there were about 100 Americans left behind.

When those planes were cleared, we found out some 200 Americans were on them, which does not include the Americans who flew home on the commercial flights.

Even on the low end, we are talking about more than 300 American citizens while this administration was trying to tell everyone ONLY 100 citizens remained behind.

Now Blinken is still saying there are 100 Americans in Afghanistan? Well, if there are still 100, that means there were at least 400 when your old us there were 100, so why should we believe this number now?

He’s lying… plain and simple.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
