    The Shame of the Never Trumpers
    By Kurt Schlichter – Posted: Aug 26, 2021 12:01 AM

    This is on them, those brave and bold MSNBCNN warriors who sold out the conservatives who once took their cruises until Trump exposed the grift; these True Conservatives™ then proceeded to help elect Grandpa Badfinger pseudo-president. Well, at least they are consistent – when they were nominally conservative, the GOP squishes they backed led us to disaster, and the Dem libs they back now are doing the same.

      The truth is Never Trumpers don’t have enough decency to even have shame. Morning Lucille.

        Spot on Menagerie!
        There is no honor ethics or morality among them, so shame will never plague them!
        It’s all about lining their pockets and their friends and family, period. The rest of us are just cannon fodder.

        Exactly right, Menagerie! They simply showed their true colors and were only conservatives when it met with their monetary desires. Too bad they got away with their perfidy for so long.

    “Our favorite Charlie Watts story was told by Keith Richards in his autobiography.
    In 1984, the Stones were in Amsterdam. Keith and Mick returned to the hotel at 5:00 AM. Mick wanted to talk with Charlie.
    “Don’t call him, not at this time,” said Keith. “But he did, and said: ‘Where is my drummer?’ There was no answer, and he hung up the phone.”
    According to Keith, 20 minutes later someone knocked on the door of the room he was in with Mick. It was Charlie, who, far from showing up in his pajamas at that hour, looked perfectly dressed in a suit, tie and perfume.
    “I opened the door and he didn’t even look at me, he walked right past me, stood in front of Mick and said, ‘Never call me your drummer again. I am not your drummer, you are my damn singer.’ Then he grabbed him by the lapels of his jacket. and gave him a right hook “, Richards recounted.
    Rest in the pocket, Charlie.” (From Abbey Road Tributes)

    Mornin’ All. My youngest granddaughter turns one today. She is a very happy baby. I had to ask her mother if she was just turning one. It has been such a long year. Her daddy was overseas the whole time, but they face timed so at least she will know him when she finally gets to see him. It infuriates me that he has to quarantine for two weeks and all those people coming from Afganistan and the illegals from all over don’t have to do that.

    It was all the way down to 73* this morning. It felt absolutely cool. I think that is the first time in months it has been below 78*. I’m still all sweaty. Hope everyone has a nice day.

    Morning, all…as recognized would happen by any adequately sentient person, the jihad killing fields have started in Afghanistan. Many think it will make the Cambodian Khmer mass murders look like a minor incident.

    Sundance has an article on what was happening at the time he posted. I’m not sure, of course, what’s happening right now but received a note from Michael Yon that his sources say 4 of our precious Marines are dead. And there’s an article saying same at thegateweaypundit.com….

    US State Department Goes Into Hiding, Cancels Press Briefing After 4 US Marines Killed, 3 Injured in Kabul Blasts

    The entire country needs to be precision leveled NOW…take out the Taliban wherever they are, destroy all that equipment BIDEN GAVE THEM, sparing as many civilians as possible, of course. But Biden and his handlers are weak people…weak minded and weak in courage–no, non-existent in courage. They are blithering idiots besides being evil to the core.

    AND IT ALL COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. This is why Biden must be impeached and thrown out the White House door.

    Why Is Congress on the Sidelines as Afghanistan Burns?
    by Pete Hoekstra – August 26, 2021 at 4:00 am

    But the oversight — the real-world exercise of the constitutional separation of powers, checking and balancing each other — that is what our host leadership wanted to avoid.

    Importantly, it was the leadership–not those who served under them, often on the front lines–who resented the very thought of oversight and resisted at every turn. The troops and embassy staff were always thrilled that we took the time and ran the risk to see first-hand what was happening… Members of Congress, on the other hand, were just everyday people who knew nothing about what needed to be done or how to do it.

    People are dying. America is suffering humiliation. And the president and the bureaucracy are trying to get away with it. Hats off to Meijer and Moulton, both military veterans, by the way, for showing us all that Congress is an equal branch of government — and for refusing to let the Biden administration cover up its catastrophic failure in Afghanistan.

    Hey friends. I’m a week out from shoulder replacement surgery and still feeling like a Mack truck ran over my right arm. Lots of pain and not much movement yet. But getting better in tiny increments. Typing is awful, so not doing much of it. Thanks for your prayers. Much appreciated.

      Prayers are continuing, Tundra. May each day see improvement for you.

      I just ran across this today from the writings of St. Augustine on prayer which is found in what is designated “Letter 130): “The deeper our faith, the stronger our hope, the greater our desire, the larger will be our capacity to receive the gift, which is very great indeed. …. The more fervent the desire, the more worthy will be its fruits. When the Apostle tells us: Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:16), he means this: Desire unceasingly that life of happiness which is nothing if not eternal, and ask it of him alone who is able to give it.”

      Such deep thinking brings total admiration for the mind God gave St. Augustine.

          I guess I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, Tundra. I tell my Pops every time I’m with him how thankful I am about the “good bones” he blessed us with. The whole musculoskeletal thing he provided us has certainly been a challenge to stay ahead of. 😉 You are 100% spot on about the growing old part, as well. Best of luck.

    My heart is heavy for our Service People in Afghanistan today and the civilians that have been killed or injured during this attack. I am also heavy hearted as to what America has come to. Our great America has been duped by the Clintons, Benghazi, and now by the liberal media who facilitated the Biden election. I only see these issues getting worse for the people that care about such things as American lives.

    • Lucille says:

      Exactly, tblakney! The key to understanding the Biden failure/s in Afghanistan is to accept the reality THAT THEY DO NOT CARE. They refused to accept the fully laid out strategic planning done by President Trump and his security advisors but just threw it in the trash. Then they compounded that crime by not making a plan themselves. As has been said, “No plan is THE plan!” That’s how much his handlers and their sycophantic media hate America.

    UK and Russia Tipped Off US on Kabul Attacks After Biden Trusted Taliban for ALL SECURITY — Terrorists Already Demanding Ransom for Stranded Americans
    By Jim Hoft – Published August 26, 2021 at 4:25pm

    This afternoon, The Gateway Pundit spoke with a trusted intelligence source who told us Islamists are already demanding ransom for the delivery of US citizens to the airport. The Biden administration has still not announced how many Americans are left inside the country.

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/08/uk-russia-tipped-off-us-kabul-attacks-biden-trusted-taliban-securirty-terrorists-already-demanding-ransom-stranded-americans/

    Note from Lucille: One of the atrocities that Michael Yon wrote about is that these jihadis find it amusing to capture an enemy, take his cell phone and begin recording the torture and perhaps death. Then they send the video to everyone in the cell address book. Remember, people, that jihadis believe this will gain them points with their god. And these are the people Biden trusted to provide security for Americans.

      I believe it is 12 marines, and one Navy corpsman dead. I watched Tucker Carlson tonight and the people he had one were totally incensed. I couldn’t believe they way they were talking about Biden the way they were. It was all true, I just couldn’t believe they said it out loud.
