So Now Biden Is Meeting With the Taliban To Discuss Releasing Their Frozen Funds

America is Back, Baby!

The Adults Are Back in Charge!

Afghan finance and central bank officials from the Taliban-led government have departed for Qatar to meet with U.S. officials. The move comes after last week's deadly earthquake highlighted how critical relief efforts have stumbled under the weight of the country's spiraling economic woes....

The Washington Post first reported that Biden administration officials are considering ways to allow Afghanistan's government to use its frozen central bank reserves to tackle the humanitarian crises there.

Wait I thought NeverTrump told us that Biden would be a sure hand at the till? I thought his 40 years of Senatorial experience were going to fix all of the amateur Trump's blunders?!

Dr. Strangetweet, @lone_rides, had something to say to the NeverTrumpers:

Dr Strangetweet or How I Learned to Love the RT @lone_rides

Jun 22

"I voted Biden but I didn't think he'd be this bad."

You were warned.

"Well, I'd still vote Biden over Trump."

Oh. In that case, shut up.

Imagine telling your fellow citizens "yeah your life sucks now after years of it not sucking, but I don't care."

"Well Trump was a danger to democracy!"

More of a danger than arresting political opponents like in Michigan? Because that's pretty damaging to democracy.

"I don't like Biden's policies but..."

There is no "but" to justify this.

None. Because anything you say either Biden has down and you ignored or Biden is doing and you're ignoring.

I remember the pseudo-Right saying we are voting for Biden but we will hold him accountable".

So when does that start? Because all I see is him curb stomping Americans and you bitching about the conservatives that want conservatism pushed.

Trump had a combative media on the Left and combative think-piecers on the Left and "Right".

What does Biden have? One reporter asking questions, everyone else ready to wipe his butt.

All you "just get rid of Trump and we'll fight Biden" fake conservatives are either cowards or liars.

Which is it?

"Voting Biden over Trump was the only logical choice."

High gas prices aren't logical. High food prices aren't logical. Spending millions on a proxy war isn't logical.

It's just that the alternative, a man you despised for succeeding where you failed, wasn't "your" guy.

You fought Trump more on a daily basis than you have Biden since he took office.

You're still fighting people who want the Right to be more than lap dogs.

So who's side are you really on?

Don't answer. We know.

Face it.

You were wrong about Trump.

You were wrong about Biden.

If you were fooled, you're not as smart as the people you look down on who told you about Biden.

If you weren't fooled, you're evil liars.

So which is it?

Are you stupid or are you evil?

Did you subject your fellow citizens to this because of your ego or because of your evil?

Personally, I think you get off on the suffering.

Cruelty is the point for you.

I keep saying this, but the pseudoright, the liberal Republican NeverTrumpers, the neocons-- liberals who became "conservative" only for purposes of supporting the policy of the Cold War against the Soviet Union -- have always hated, feared, and despised actual conservatives. And they have always feared a conservative takeover of America more than a leftwing progressive one.

They're 75% leftwing progressives themselves, so they don't fear that. They don't prefer it, you understand, but they also don't fear it.

They live in very leftwing Blue Cities in which ultraleft governance is the norm, in which ultraleft social norms are the norm, in which ultraleft political imperatives are the norm.

They are used to very leftwing government and have no visceral objection to it. They see it as merely a cost to pay for having easy access to the the-a-tre and tastefully ethnic restaurants.

On the other hand: they absolutely fear and despise conservatives, and would never agree to live in conservative-dominated regions.

They have remained "on the right" under one condition: The condition in which they control the actual conservatives and keep them out of actual power and keep conservatives from achieving the conservative priorities conservatives seek.

Oh, the neocons will agree to lead the conservatives -- as long as they can lead them away from actual conservatism, towards a more enlightened left-liberal Corporate Libertarianism.

The reason they hate Trump -- I mean, they hate him for other reasons, but the reason they H - A - T - E Trump -- is that he was the only man who could and would stand outside this Fake Politics the neocons had constructed with their openly liberal cousins in which conservatives had only two options, the Fake "Conservative"-branded version of neoliberalism, or the establishment liberal version of liberalism.

I'm really not a fan of Trump, and I would love it if he didn't run and just let DeSantis win 45 states in 2024, but let's give Trump credit: Literally no one was capable of standing completely apart from the Vast Fake Right Wing Conspiracy of grifter consultants, grifter fundraisers, grifter party leaders, and grifter politicians and saying "I'm going my own way, the fuck with all of you guys, I don't need your blessing and I won't repeat your mantras."

Again, I hate to say this, but give the man his due: Trump freed people's minds. He freed us from The Matrix of fake, forced "options" imposed on us by the Uniparty.

The "manufactured consent" that leftwing rabble-rouser Noam Chomsky wrote about? He didn't know the half of it. And he didn't know the real "manufactured consent" psyops operations were being directed not against the left but against the right.

This is why they are so determined to take out Trump. Part of it is backwards looking-- they want vengeance against the man who stole the power they had tricked conservatives into granting them.

But most of it is very forwards-looking: they think that if they can discredit and destroy Trump, then they can put us all back into the box, where we all accept that our choice is between Jeb! flavored Fake Conservatism, or Marco Rubio flavored Fake Conservatism, or Kristi Noem flavored Fake Conservatism.

If they can just rid themselves of this turbulent anti-priest, then the Rubes will calm down and accept reason and accept their place as The Ruled, not the Rulers, and finally start obeying the neocon branch of the neoliberal establishment Uniparty again.

I don't think they're right. I sure hope they're not right, because if a movement is to endure, it has to be capable of existing without its founder. It cannot die when the founder's lifespan ends.

The neocon NeverTrumpers are sure hoping that's all this is, and all there is to Trumpism is a bunch of Zombies mesmerized by Trump's Dark Charisma, and if they can just get rid of the Zombie Master, then the spell will be broken, and we'll all go back to being hypnotized by them.

They don't understand -- they can't understand -- they won't understand -- that this is much less about allegiance to Trump and much, much more about a declaration of war against them.

Trump was and is a rallying point. A figure to gather around. A flag to gather under.

But others can serve this function.

To be honest, I don't give a shit if they release Ted Kazynski from prison and he becomes the new MAGA standard bearer -- I'll rally around him to oppose the corrupt, smugly-toxic Ruling Party.

They all pretend they were "just fighting Trump."

That is the biggest lie of all.

They were attacking Trump. They weren't fighting Trump. They weren't denigrating and dehumanizing Trump.

They were doing all those things to us, and they know that.

In 2016, we got sick of complaining to the Establishment that our voices were being ignored and openly mocked -- "Hobbits!" After years and years of being ignored, you stop asking, and you start telling.

We told them. We voted for Trump.

We told them that we were going to pursue a different kind of politics than the one the Establishment corporate service officers of the GOP had been pursuing for fifty years.

And we won.

But we didn't.

Because instead of allowing us to enjoy the victory we'd lawfully, rightly, legally obtained, NeverTrump decided upon a scorched earth strategy to subvert, undermine, block, and discredit us and stop us from doing any of the things we had just won a popular mandate to do.

They were insistent that we should have the choice between two options: Establishment Neo-liberalism and Fake "Conservative"-Branded Establishment Neo-Liberalism, and we were simply not permitted to make any selection except for those on the menu made by the Ruling Class, and as we had acted above our station and mistaken ourselves for free men, we would have to be Taught a Lesson.

NeverTrump would now turn itself to ensuring that the policies we had lawfully, honestly won the right to put into practice would fail, so that Trump would fail, so that our movement would fail, so that we would realize that we were all Stupid Little Hobbits incapable of choosing for ourselves and go back to obeying Paul Singer and Bill Kristol and Mitch McConnell and AEI and its donors.

And NeverTrump really thinks that after all this, after making treasonous war on their former allies for six fucking years, we're going to support them when they try to force Kristi Fucking Noem on us?

Or -- Liz Cheney?

Are you kidding me?

You are dead to us. You are nothing but traitors, and no one trusts a traitor, not even the side they defected to.

But you would do better to follow Bill Kristol's lead and simply start attempting to create a Neocon Bubble inside the Democrat Party, because you will never be permitted any success in the GOP again.

I will vote for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez before I vote for a NeverTrump candidate. I will vote for Bernie Sanders before I vote for a NeverTrump neocon.

I will affirmatively do what NeverTrump did -- I will work to destroy everything and burn it all down, in order to gain back power for my faction -- rather than submit to you, ever again.

Death to the NeverTrumpers.

Death to the Neocons.

Death to fake conservative charlatans and internal saboteurs.

Is it clear now, AllahPundit?

Taking down Trump is not the win you've been jerking yourself off about for six years.

Mollie @MZHemingway

Totally apart from her GirlPower work with Pelosi running roughshod over due process protections in Congress, this sexist trope is such a stupid and lefty thing for Liz Cheney to say. It's Hillary Clinton-esque.

Well the NeverTrumpers did all support Hillary Clinton in 2016, so.

Oh wait, they claim they didn't -- they just used all of what influence they had to direct people away from voting for Trump, while encouraging people to vote for either Hillary Clinton or spoiler third-party candidates like the pothead from Arizona.

Totally different from "supporting Hillary Clinton!"
