In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


WHD Exclusive: White House Offered Biden for Bergdahl

White House Dossier has obtained an exclusive transcript of a conversation in the vice president’s West Wing office in which White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough informed Vice President Biden that Biden would be going to Afghanistan as part of a trade for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was kidnapped by the Taliban.

We present to you here the transcript in full.


McDONOUGH: Mr. Vice President, we want to have a word with you.

BIDEN: Sure, go ahead, you got an idea? Let’s kick it around!

McDONOUGH: As you are aware, a U.S. service member, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, was kidnapped by the Taliban. We are thinking of arranging an exchange.

BIDEN: You don’t say? Let’s do it!

McDONOUGH: Yes, I think we should.

BIDEN: Who are we going to send? One of their guys?

McDONOUGH: No, one of our guys





BIDEN: What the . . .

McDONOUGH: We know you are a brave man, particularly after a couple of scotch and sodas, and so we thought you might be willing to do this for your country.

BIDEN: For my country.

McDONOUGH: There are also several fringe benefits to the exchange.

BIDEN: Like what?

McDONOUGH: Well, once the Taliban have spent a certain amount of time with you, our intelligence agencies have assessed that they will start killing themselves.

BIDEN: I see.

McDONOUGH: You’ll be a cancer within the Taliban. Kind of like you are in the White House.

BIDEN: Okay . . .

McDONOUGH: It’s also a way to way to get our foot in the door with the Taliban. And to get you out the door.

BIDEN: Me out the door?

McDONOUGH: Yes. Now, this is all good because the Republican leadership has signed on because they don’t feel they can impeach Obama while you are vice president. We’ve decided it’s worth the risk.

BIDEN: Okay. I guess that makes sense. Who will the president appoint to replace me?

McDONOUGH: Anybody. It doesn’t matter. Anybody else.

BIDEN: I’m not sure I want to so this. What do they eat?

McDONOUGH: Lots of kabobs.

BIDEN: Every day?

McDONOUGH: Well, some days there’s chicken, some days there’s lamb.

BIDEN: Is there Thai food?

McDONOUGH: We don’t think so, Mr. Vice President.

BIDEN: Can I wear slacks and a golf shirt? I don’t want to walk around in my pajamas all day like those guys do.

McDONOUGH: If you are talking about traditional Afghan garb, you may have to wear what they wear.

BIDEN: But I don’t speak their language.

McDONOUGH: It’s okay, some Taliban speak English. Several make more sense in English than you do. Nevertheless, we’ve brought someone here from the State Department to try to teach you some basic phrases that you may need.

ARNOLD: Hello Mr. Vice President. I’m Arnold, from the South Asia desk. Please repeat after me: Allahu Akbar

BIDEN: Allahuuu . . .

ARNOLD: Allahu Akhbar

BIDEN: Ahh . . .  Ahh . . .  Alakabar

ARNOLD: No, Mr. Vice President, Allahu Akhbar

BIDEN: Alakabar

ARNOLD: Allahu Akhbar

BIDEN: Alakabee

ARNOLD: Gentleman, I don’t think this is possible. Let’s try it in English. They’ll understand. It means “God is great.”

BIDEN: Isn’t that kind of demeaning? Sounds like you’re talking about a can of soda or something. Like, “Hey, Sprite is great!”

ARNOLD: No, it means “great” as in “sublime.”

BIDEN: What’s “sublime?”

McDONOUGH: Just forget it. Just say it when you get there. Now, you’ll be leaving immediately.

BIDEN: Can I have a glass of milk first?


BIDEN: Can I bring my Phillies cap?

McDONOUGH: Well, sure. Now –

(Secretary of State John Kerry enters)

KERRY: Wait a second boys. The president has just decided we’re going to send five senior Taliban leaders from Gitmo for Bergdahl instead.

McDONOUGH: What? That’s absurd. Mr. Vice President, please get packed.

KERRY: No, really. Five Taliban.

BIDEN: Thank goodness. I’m not sure I was going to like it there. But you got me hungry. Please order me a chicken kabob for lunch. And bring me my pajamas.

  1. This would be kinda funny…
    But everything about Obama-Biden when it comes to “US National Security” is SO,SO, SO PATHETIC…
    And NO ONE in this Obama “WH press corps” OR “Main Stream Media” will ever question OR challenge Obama when it comes to “US National Security”.

    I am a USN Vet,
    and seeing this USA hating Obama as the so-called “CINC”, with that dope Biden as “VP”, that loser Hagel as “Sec. of Defense”, that a##hole Kerry as “Sec. of State” (with the red-head & blonde bimbos as ‘spokes-people’), that IDIOT Susan Rice as “Nat. Sec. Advisor” AND the COWARD 4 star Generals/Admirals on the “Joint-Chiefs of Staff”…

    All of it just makes me sick.

  2. Langley, I could not agree more wholeheartedly. Our nation is being run by useless corruptocrats who have diminished out standing in the world irreversibly. Sadly, the electorate is either too stupid or too distracted by their smartphones to notice what the United States has become under the watch of these miscreants.

    1. “our” standing, not “out.” Typing with one hand as I eat my $6.00 sub at my desk, like most small business owners. No fanfare for us.

  3. I object! MrBiden might not be the brightest bulb in the package, but until we hear differently, he’s served his country honorably, if not well.

    I wouldn’t have traded a dead American sewer rat for the traitor/deserter.
    I would have let him rot there. Tradition be damned.

    1. Sorry, but I lost any sense of honor about him when he giggled his way through his debate with Ryan. Not to mention suggesting Republicans were racists with the “chains” comment.

  4. You’re on a roll, Keith! I love it. Like a breath of fresh air on a day when the stench of this White House is overwhelming.

    1. …Imagine the ‘laughs’ latter tonight (6:45pm EST) on FNC when Bret & Greta “interview”(?) Hilliary…
      No offense to Bret & Greta I am not looking forward to any REAL questions ~OR~ REAL answers from Hilliary… ESPECIALLY with todays “capture” of a Benghazi suspect.

      (thankfully there is a ‘Simpons’ re-run at the time)

      1. Funny you should mention The Simpsons. When I read Biden’s satirical exchange above, I pictured the Simpsons episode when the FBI agents try to get Homer to understand his new identity upon entering the Witness Protection Program.

        FBI Agent #1: “Now Homer, your new name is Homer Thompson. Hello, Mr. Thompson.”

        HOMER: (With puzzled look on his face, turns to FBI Agent #2) “I think he’s talking to you.”

  5. Keep Joe. He has to be good for something and best I can tell he does have a warm spot in his heart for this country.

    Send Kerry. Don’t brief him. Parachute him in.

        1. I know – didn’t mean it to sound so serious, just a slightly sardonic way of saying I couldn’t devote myself to humor full time, even if I were sure I had the talent for it . . . too many more important things.
