It would take a heart of stone…

Not to revel in their self-inflicted humiliation.

Let’s face it – the Democrats in Congress have zilch to show their constituents next fall except videos of Adam the Anime-eyed Lollipop and Oompa Nadler losing in the Senate. And their primary is a disaster of epic proportions and it’s hilariously funny. Here’s how bad it is: Beto the Furry fell out and the stupidity/insanity axis actually rose.

Just last week, Chief Sitting Bolshevik assured her baffled audience that she would allow a trans nine-year-old to pick her Secretary of Education. Leaving aside that there are no “trans” nine-year-olds, only disturbed children egged on by terrible liberal parents who delight at how converting Kaden into Ashleigh will make themselves interesting, you at least gotta hand it to Pocahontas. That’s some incredible sucking up to the weirdo fringie set by the only person of color remaining in the race.

The rest of the Dems are failing too, each in their own way. Gropey J is staggering about, the unwatched impeachment clusterfark having done only one thing – made people wonder why that loser dope-huffing, sister-in-law-tagging son of his got millions from Ukrainian crooks. Bernie Sanders might well be the nominee, setting off a Democratic panic and ham-handed attempts to create a lane for Midget Mike. Wait, I thought billionaires were bad? Anyway, ripping off Bernie again will spark a sissy civil war with lots of whining and pinching and it will be hilarious and terrific.

And overall this smoking Democratic wreckage looms Donald Trump, bellowing in laughter as his poll numbers rise. The economy is booming. He has signed great new trade deals. We are ending the elite’s idiotic wars. And it is looking like Nancy Pelosi will have even more reason to drink herself into sputtering incoherence over next November when we take back the House.

It’s a painful time to be a Democrat. Good. Because Democrats chose to be terrible, and their agony should refresh and inspire us. Graciousness in victory? Pass. They tried to take us out by taking out the guy we elected. They tried to make sure we could never have a say in our own country ever again. They tried, and because they suck, they failed.

Rub it in their smug, tear-streaked faces.

You losers have only just started losing, and we have only just started winning.

Or, as Trump put it last night, the best is yet to come. I took that to mean that, come 2020, the gloves will really and truly come off, and he will continue the ruin and utter destruction of the Democrat-Socialist Party and the Left apace. I’m confident that he won’t forget or forgive the hellish nightmare they so wantonly put him, his family, and his supporters through for the past three years, and I hope his/our retribution will be so swift, painful, and encompassing that they can never, ever recover.

Reap the whirlwind, you scrofulent cankers. You think this week has been just awful for you? Say it with me one mo’ time ag’in: the best is yet to come.

Update! Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Despite the Democrats’ fervent attempts to see him removed from office, President Trump has succeeded beyond all expectations for the good of the nation. This is what so enrages the left; the man has done in three years what they have promised their voters for sixty-plus years but never accomplished — on purpose. The left has always promised what they never intended to deliver. Their plan for decades has been to keep us all down, begging them, the federal government, for sustenance. Their plan has always been to convince us we cannot thrive without their intervention in our lives and by intervention, they mean they will tell us how to live, breathe, eat, drive, work, etc.  Our left is authoritarian, fascist.

And they are also as ungracious as any group of people who have ever held office in America.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yet again embarrassed herself. This is a woman without an iota of grace or class. She has been determined to see President Trump unseated since the day he won the election. She is the wicked witch of the House; all-powerful but losing her grip on her caucus and her sanity; she is melting. She sat grim-faced, working her mouth in odd ways as always, trying to distract from the content of the speech by shuffling papers to make the point that she was not listening. She was purposefully rude. Her behavior should be mortifying to her colleagues but they all behaved in like manner.

As the president listed the many successes of his administration so far, the Democrats sat on their hands, refusing to applaud nearly all of the terrific things that have taken place these past three years. They made a point of appearing dismissive of the man and his words. They are very angry that it has been a non-ideological Republican who has achieved so much for so many, doing things Democrats have always promised but never fulfilled, stealing their thunder.  

Americans have just endured three years of the Democrats’ inability to accept the results of the 2016 election and the torment of the costly and phony Russia hoax as well as the Mueller investigation, which was in fact a cover-up scheme. Then Schiff brought us the long-planned Ukraine nonsense. We have all watched Schiff’s descent into madness; he is in need of a rubber room with his final ravings, and yet his colleagues still refrain from stopping him from making an ever bigger fool of himself. They have remained silent as he has made their party a laughingstock. Not a single Democrat has had the courage to shout that this wanna-be emperor has no clothes. Schiff’s obsession with removing Trump from office is clearly a sign of his mental instability. Trump is going to sell Alaska to Russia! Bring on the straitjacket and an incapacitating agent.

When the president’s speech was over, Pelosi furiously ripped up her copy of it on camera.

Is there a better, more telling act of her anger and disrespect for the office of the presidency? She is a harridan, a blight upon her city, her party and the country. The American Democrat party has become something it was never meant to be: it has morphed into a radically fascist party of autocrats. Certainly not all of them fall into this category but those who do not are cowards. Clearly they are afraid of the tyrants who control the party so they sit quietly by in fear of losing their seats. As we watched them all refuse to applaud the many successes of this administration and the members of the audience Trump celebrated, we should all realize that these people are not on the side of America or Americans.

We’d better. The last desperate hope of retaking our country without catastrophic violence depends on it. And just spare me that “not all of them” bushwa, please. The fact is, after three or four of them coyly fiddling and flirting with maybe voting to acquit so as to create a “judicious moderate” picture of themselves, every last Democrat-Socialist Senator cast aside the false cloak of “judicious moderation” and voted to convict on both specious articles.

This, mind you, while knowing full well that Shampeachment was a reckless, totally illegitimate stab at a 2016 election do-over. There was not one thing fair about it; not one thing procedurally or Constitutionally correct; not one thing respectful, somber, or honest about it. Neither of the fraudulent articles is a crime at all, let alone rising to the level of an impeachable offense. This was a naked, audacious attempt at a soft coup, one hundred percent politically-motivated and partisan, and not one jot or tittle more.

“Not all of them” my baggy old ass. Yes, every blasted one of them, to the last (transgender) man Jack of ’em. Wxhen it came down to the nut-cuttin’, they all stood as one to cast their votes in favor of removing Trump unanimously, in brazen defiance of the rule of law, historical precedent, and any rational concept of justice. That’s as clear a declaration of who and what they really are as anybody ought to need: a “radically fascist party of autocrats.”

All of them update! Yes, Joe Manchin too.

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia was one of the few Democrats contemplating how to vote on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. He continually said he would look at the evidence on an impartial basis. After all, Manchin voted “guilty” on both articles. 

Following the vote, Manchin explained his decision to a group of reporters outside of the Senate.

“I’ve always said if I can go home and explain it, I can vote for it. If I can’t explain it, I vote against it,” the West Virginia senator explained. “I can explain my vote based on the evidence that was presented. Under oath, the evidence was given to us under oath, by the testimonies from the witnesses that they were able to secure and the documents that we saw.”

“Common sense will tell me, after the transcript, that a phone call from the most powerful president in the world to the most inexperienced leader of a country that’s facing Russian aggression would very much be intimidated and that’s not who we are,” Manchin said. “I have said before you can’t go around and we can’t be the country we are trying to encourage countries to accept democracy and enjoy the freedoms and liberties that we all enjoy by using that for a political favor. You can’t do that. That’s not who we are.”

Yeah, right, you lying fraud. “You can’t do that”—says who? According to which law, exactly? So now “that’s not who we are”—a vacuous slogan without one iota of either relevance or factual truth here—ascends to the level of “treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors”?

If Manchin truly believes this tripe, he’s too goddamned dim a bulb to be allowed anywhere near any sort of power at all, at any level higher than deciding what he wants for breakfast. But he doesn’t believe a word of it. He’s a cheap bullshit artist, and not even a very skillful one if this slapdash, thimble-deep piffle is typical of the stuff he usually peddles. He got nervous at the last minute, decided to cover his ass via striking a thoughtful pose, then scurried right back into lockstep with his slightly more frenzied co-seditionists when it counted—doing tremendous harm to an already-fractured nation, in several important ways, by so doing. To Hell with him, and with every other soulless, America-hating Democrat-Socialist too.

Blowback for Gibberin’ Nance

Polygrip Pelosi in the crosshairs.

Multiple lawmakers indicated on Wednesday that they were taking action against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for ripping up President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address last night.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) wrote on Twitter: “BREAKING: I’m filing an ethics complaint against @SpeakerPelosi for destroying @realDonaldTrump’s State of the Union speech. Her conduct was beneath the dignity of the House, and a potential violation of law (18 USC 2071). Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.”

In a letter addressed to Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch (D-FL), Gaetz requested that the Committee open an investigation “into Speaker Pelosi’s flagrant violation of decorum, as defined in clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII, and request a criminal referral for her potential violation of 18 U.S.C. §2071 (Concealment, removal, or mutilation of documents), following President Trump’s recent State of the Union address of February 4, 2020. Her unseemly behavior certainly warrants censure.”

Later in the letter, Gaetz added: “It is hard to overlook the symbolism of such a gesture — the sense that Speaker Pelosi was utterly dismissive of the President’s achievements, and, more importantly, the achievements of the American people.”

Gaetz said that Pelosi potentially committed a crime by violating 18 U.S.C. §2071.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) said Wednesday that he was introducing a resolution censuring Pelosi for her actions.

“In response to her classless outburst, I’ve decided to introduce a resolution to censure & condemn Speaker Pelosi,” Gosar tweeted Wednesday. “In a new low, she violated the Code of Official Conduct requiring Members ‘behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.’”

In a follow up interview with The Washington Examiner, Gosar said, “It is my honor to represent Arizona’s fourth district, which includes the family of Kayla Mueller. Speaker Pelosi’s petty outburst wasn’t cute or funny, it was a disgusting display of hatred and unbecoming of her office. Speaker Pelosi has proven she doesn’t deserve the speaker’s gavel. She didn’t just rip up a few pieces of paper, she ripped up one of the last Tuskegee Airmen, a child who survived birth at 21 weeks, the morning Mueller family, and a soldiers homecoming.

Well, actually, she and her fellow Commiecrats pissed all over ’em, more like. Either way, there damned sure ought to be a price for it—a very, very high one. Crush her, guys, and her odious comrades right along with her. This is a bill that’s WAY past due; time for them to pay.

God Emperor versus the Small People

S’cuse me if this sounds a little hyperbolic to you, but: a bravura SOTU performance by, hands down, the greatest President in American history.

I know, I know: the word ‘humble’ and the name ‘Trump’ sit uneasily in the same sentence. But read or listen to his State of the Union speeches. Trump proudly retails his achievements. But he also humbly affirms the reality that he is working for and that is much larger than any individual.

The State of the Union address this year was full of touching moments. For me, one of the most touching was the president calling out the great talk show host Rush Limbaugh, who just Monday announced to the world that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. The president first said that Rush would be receiving the nation’s highest civilian honor — the Presidential medal of Freedom; he then had his wife Melania present the honor on the spot, cinching the pendant around the teary commentator’s neck for all to see.

Donald Trump wasn’t a reality TV host for nothing. He understands drama. So not only did Rush get his Medal of Freedom, but a woman with two young children, whose husband was away in Afghanistan on his fourth deployment, suddenly, unexpectedly got her husband back. The Commander in Chief had ordered the solider returned from Afghanistan. At the agreed upon moment, he came striding down the aisle to embrace his wife and children. Ilhan Omar, who came to the event to represent ‘resistance’ against an ‘illegitimate’ president, just sat there.

Once again, the Democrats were falling over themselves to exhibit their rudeness. On one side of the chamber, people stood up and sat down more often than congregants at a Catholic Mass. Most of the Democrats, however, sat stonily in their seats, snickering or staring at the floor while others around them cheered. Rep. Ayanna Pressley issued a snarling tweet explaining why she would give the State of the Union Address a miss. So did Rep. Maxine Waters. So of course did Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They and many others proudly displayed their lack of common courtesy and rudimentary civil behavior in order to grandstand and wallow in unrequited feelings of hatred and unstoppable pettiness.

There was, of course, a surreal element to the proceedings. For the last several months, the president has been subject to farcical, wholly partisan impeachment proceedings, in outrageous violation of everything the Framers intended in outlining that awesome safeguard. Donald Trump did not utter the word impeachment during his long speech. Nor did he allude to his Lilliputian tormentors. Wednesday, February 5, 2020, is the day that the Senate votes to acquit the president. Nancy Pelosi said that, no matter what happens, the ‘stain’ of impeachment would always be attached to the name of Donald Trump, a malignant ‘asterisk’ declaring his essential failure. I think that she is right that the history books will feature an asterisk about impeachment. But I predict that it will call attention not to Donald Trump’s bad behavior but to the craven, nakedly partisan efforts of an embittered minority to overturn the results of the 2016 election and forestall the outcome of the 2020 election.

And it will be Pelosi and the Seven Dwarves themselves who will forever carry the indelible stain of their Shampeachment folly, not Trump.

One of (the) most difficult things to achieve is an accurate estimation of one’s age while living through it. The many claims of everyday life, to say nothing of the static of received opinion, makes an unclouded assessment exceedingly difficult. Just so, it is difficult for us, I think, to form a just estimation of Donald Trump. His style is often so foreign to our idea of what a president should be. But not always.  A couple of years ago, when President Trump gave his great speech on foreign policy and national identity in Warsaw, I conjectured that his model was Pericles of Athens. Some people made fun of me for that — ‘comparing Donald Trump to Pericles? Are you kidding me?’ In truth I did not so much compare Trump to Pericles as suggest that Thucydides had provided a model in his account of the Pericles’s Funeral Oration in the first year of the Peloponnesian War.

Thinking back on it now, however, I suspect that I was too stingy with my praise. In my view, Trump’s major speeches — and tonight’s was no exception — will go as among the most eloquent and important in the nation’s history, just as his stupendous, world-changing achievements will be hailed as the fulcrum upon which the nation began to turn its back on the agenda of dependency that has hobbled this country at least since LBJ’s malevolent ‘Great Society’ programs created a permanent underclass and a parasitic bureaucracy to nurture it and feed upon it.

The president’s speech tonight was nothing less than magnificent. Notwithstanding the gnat-like creatures that swarm about him, he has continued to accomplish great things for America. ‘This nation is our canvas,’ he said in his peroration, ‘and this country is our masterpiece. We look at tomorrow and see unlimited frontiers just waiting to be explored. Our brightest discoveries are not yet known. Our most thrilling stories are not yet told. Our grandest journeys are not yet made. The American Age, the American Epic, the American Adventure, has only just begun!’

Adam Schiff was unavailable for comment.

No matter; the pop-eyed, hydrocephalic, sniveling little pussy has never uttered a single syllable worth bothering to listen to anyway. His place in American history, along with his shameless, putrescent colleagues, is assured. It is not one any decent or honorable person would care to occupy.

As Kimball says above, the Limbaugh moment was probably the most poignant, the most moving of a night chock-full of them. Rush was clearly overwhelmed and gratified to be so honored. But Limbaugh’s time in the SOTU spotlight was about more than just him alone. Not to slight Rush in any way whatsoever, of course; as the single man most responsible for the rebirth of American conservatism, for his efforts on behalf of several worthy charitable organizations and the US military specifically, he has earned the highest of accolades many times over.

No, Rush’s hour of grace was bigger, more significant than merely that. Because the simple truth is, the MoF and other such awards and recognitions had been besmirched and sadly diminished by Trump’s vile predecessor, who much preferred to spend his time denigrating America and convincing the rest of us of the essential rightness of its deserved lapse into decay and despair. Who cares, really, about getting an award from a “leader” whose sole interest is in “managing the decline,” whose primary concern is not reversing but accelerating it? What pride can be taken from honors received from the dishonorable, from accolades bestowed by scoundrels, losers, and creeps? Just add patriotism, pride, and the restoration of their previous value to the ever-lengthening list of things Trump has Made Great Again.

For anyone who missed it, I simply must include Trump’s tribute to Limbaugh here:




I confess, I puddled up a little myself watching last night. It was but one of many remarkable moments from Trump’s SOTU. But alas, now we must address the other, uglier side of the coin, though: the disgusting, craven, childish behavior of the hateful brats in the Disloyal Opposition.

As a lead-in to that unpleasantness, another fine moment was this one:

President Donald Trump honored one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen at his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

Charles McGee who is 100-years-old, flew more than 135 combat missions during World War II, attacking targets in Italy and helping support the rescue of 1,000 prisoners of war in Romania.

Mr Trump signed a bill promoting Charles McGee from Colonel to Brigadier General and earlier on Tuesday pinned the stars onto his shoulders during a private ceremony at the Oval Office in the White House. 

More:

Trump pointed to Iain Lanphier, a 13-year-old from Arizona studying at an aviation academy, as a potential recruit for the new Space Force.

“As Iain says, ‘most people look up at space, I want to look down on the world,’” Trump said as he gestured toward the eighth grader.

Sitting next to Lanphier was his great-grandfather, Charles McGee, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen — the first group of African-American fighter pilots, who served in World War II.

Whereupon McGee, looking quite spiffy and squared-away in dress blues complete with full salad-bar, smiled at Trump and snapped off a sharp and proper salute to the CinC, bless his heart. Like the SOTU entire, it was heartwarming. Inspiring. Uplifting.

Incredibly, though, EVEN THIS the goddamnable Democrat-Socialist scum couldn’t bring themselves to applaud. Obviously, they would far rather indulge their own bitter, selfish rage than step back from their partisan game-playing to bestow a moment’s common decency upon a courageous, noble American veteran and his admirable young descendant. They owe—this entire nation owes—one hell of a lot more than a mere modicum of respect to such a one as McGee, more than the most piffling encouragement to a young man dreaming such heady dreams. But the despicable toe-rags couldn’t even trouble themselves to THAT pathetic extent.

Such a display of generosity and humility lies well beyond the pitiful reach of our Democrat-Socialist “leaders.” Francis says it:

To call their attitudes and behavior sour and spiteful is to give them very faint coloration. Every shot of the assembly shows the Democrats resolutely refusing even to smile at the many excellent developments of which President Trump could boast. The sight of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ripping up the copy of the speech, which the president is required by courtesy if not by law to give her, was the jewel in their sour-mouthed, sour-faced crown. It was the plainest of demonstrations that Trump’s success — America’s success — is anathema to them.

Admitting to error is no one’s favorite pastime. It’s particularly galling to politicians. The Democrats have many errors – if errors they were in truth – to answer for. Having Donald Trump, whom they revile personally as well as ideologically, enumerate them to their faces was the bitterest medicine a politician can be fed.

But it was time the Democrats were compelled to face their own record. Not that they’d ever admit that those failures were actually theirs, of course. It was all “Republican obstructionism” or “lack of cooperation from the private sector.” And the public was entitled to see the refutation of it in living color.

As I was thumbing around the radio dial this morning, I tuned into the local talk station for a sec, where I heard the show’s host (no idea who that is; the car radio is usually welded to the local classical-music outlet, but they were playing some excruciating modern Mondo-Weirdo crapola at the time, which will send me diving for the switcher every time) wonder how “any reasonable person could POSSIBLY vote for a Democrat” after last night’s disgraceful tantrum. The thing he’s missing is this: no REASONABLE person would.

By all rights, Trump’s lustrous SOTU triumph should have hammered the final nail into the Demonrat’s coffin, finishing them off as a national Party for all time. It’s stupefying to realize that it won’t; there are still those blighted urban Red zones in play, and the delusional or credulous or just plain stupid voters will low like the witless cattle they are and lumber on off to vote for whatever dog’s breakfast of a candidate the D-S’s manage to puke up for 2020. Assuming they can figure out how to correctly rig a caucus or primary in time to nominate one, which after their Iowa debacle might be doubtful.

Unless he’s captured on video strangling puppies and setting kittens afire on the White House steps before election day, Trump will win a crushing reelection victory over them. But sooner or later, one way or another, they’ll be back. It’s a damned shame, and speaks quite poorly of a significant portion of the American electorate. But…well, there it is.

Update! Full text and video of Trump’s brilliant speech is up here.

Enemies, domestic

I like the cut of this guy’s jib.

A Republican lawmaker in Montana claimed Saturday that the Constitution allows for the shooting or imprisonment of socialists.

State Rep. Rodney Garcia (R) first made the remark on Friday following a speech by former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, according to the Billings Gazette. Garcia told Zinke he is worried that socialists are “entering our government,” and suggested the Constitution permits jailing or shooting socialists.

ARE “entering our government”? Wrong tense and poor sentence construction there, buddy. Try “HAVE entered,” or perhaps “ARE IN COMPLETE CONTROL OF…” etc for better grammar and greater accuracy.

Zinke did not engage Garcia, the Gazette reported.

However, when Garcia was questioned about the comments on Saturday, he doubled down and called socialists “enemies of the free state” and said their ideology is “very dangerous.”

“So actually in the Constitution of the United States (if) they are found guilty of being a socialist member you either go to prison or are shot,” he said.

As I say, I have no real beef with it. But if we do start taking all that guff about the proper way to deal with enemies and traitors seriously again, who the hell’s gonna be left to run against Trump in 2020?

Hm. Just realized I have no real beef with that either, actually.

“They’re enemies of the free state,” Garcia added. “What do we do with our enemies in war? In Vietnam, (Afghanistan), all those. What did we do?”

Well, we 1) refused to define our objectives clearly; B) let ourselves get suckered into “limited engagements,” nation-building, and “hearts and minds” campaigns when we should have been stacking enemy corpses like cordwood; and iii) wound up declaring “victory” just before skedaddling in ignominious defeat, however we might have rationalized it at the time. So those might not be the absolute best examples of how to handle the problem, I’m thinking. Here’s an alternative approach:

PORTLAND, OR—The CDC has announced a full quarantine of Portland to prevent the spread of a dangerous virus known as communism.

While communism has been around for a while, experts believe the 2020-Antifa strain could develop into the worst communism pandemic in decades.

“We are enforcing a ban on all travel in and out of Portland until a cure is found,” said one CDC official. “We simply can’t risk deadly viruses like communism spreading out into the world. Millions will die.”

Don’t look now, but millions already have.

Although there is no known cure for communism, there are preventative measures that experts recommend, such as reading history books. Signs that someone you love may have communism already include wearing ski masks, sporting Che Guevara shirts, and not showering regularly.

“If you see something that indicates someone you know may be infected with communism, say something.”

In a shocking turn of events, all Democratic candidates were found to be carriers of the disease, though they assured everyone it was actually a democratic version of the virus.

Well, hey, that’s diff’runt then. Carry on.

That’s a wrap

The curtain is finally being brought down on Schitt’s Shampeachment Schow.

The Senate voted 51-49 on a motion to support prior constitutional precedent and avoid further witness testimony in the Senate.  Republican Senators Susan Collins and Mitt Romney voted with Democrats to break constitutional framework and support witness testimony in the Senate that did not originate from House impeachment process.

Because OF COURSE they did, the dirty, treacherous scum.

Senators are now recessed for dinner while holding meetings within their caucus to debate next steps. A disagreement within the republican caucus seems to be framed around Senators wishing to have debate time to present their own personal positions on the Senate floor prior to a final vote to remove or acquit President Trump.

One likely scenario is a vote on a resolution tonight outlining next steps, open to amendment and voting; then recess for the evening around 9pm, and a return at 11:00am Monday. That would position a final acquittal vote for Wednesday.

Hoft ain’t happy with that.

This is a travesty.

The US Senate is purposely pushing the President’s acquittal until after the SOTU Address!

This also gives Democrats plenty of time to make up more fake news Ukrainian stories.

How awful!

Meh, it ain’t like they weren’t gonna do it anyway—that, and worse. But there’s another angle to consider here:



I like it. Then too, there’s this:

Don’t forget that Trump will deliver his State of the Union address on Tuesday, in front of a crowd half-consisting of fully humiliated Democrats. Presumably, that’ll be one night before Cocaine Mitch has his chamber vote to acquit, but it’s SOTU so all the Democrats present will have to feign civility.

Savage, indeed.

“Feign civility”? What, you mean like they did last time, the time before that, and every other damned time? I’d strongly recommend you not hold your breath waiting for any “civility” from the swinish, grubby asstards, Steve. Your odds are way, WAY better with buying Powerball tickets.

Moreover, this won’t be the end of anything at all, when you get right down to it. If there’s one thing the Commiecrat slime NEVER does, it’s give up and admit defeat. Mention has already been made of follow-on rounds of Shampeachment after this one, and once Trump is safely re-elected we should expect the long knives to REALLY come out for him…and us. Hard to see how they can possibly double-down from this new low, but count on it: they will.

As I always say: They won’t stop. They will NEVER stop. They will have to BE stopped. Which looks more and more like requiring a, shall we say, more permanent solution if we ever hope to smell the last of such garbage from them.

Schadenboner update! Schampeachment flops; Backstabbin’ Bolton hardest hit?

During his four decades as an accumulator of power in the nation’s capital, a holder of high offices in the State Department, and finally a stint as President Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton has been well known for his scrupulous attention to the hiring and firing of his staff.

He always has demanded unwavering personal loyalty as well as fealty to his own—not his president’s—policy agenda. He has performed the most rigorous vetting on all who have been selected to serve on his various staffs, both the small number of political appointees a political appointee such as himself is allowed to have as well as the more numerous personnel selected from the foreign service, civil service, military services, and intelligence agencies.

This incident illumined in high relief that Bolton’s loyalties are never to his superiors but always to himself and to others only so long as they remain his sycophants.

The strange case of the Vindman twins (Alexander and Yevgeny) should be examined in the light of Bolton’s Roi du Soleil management style.

Bolton is totally responsible for this pair of unusual hires. There is no explaining this strange duo of appointments as something that the bureaucracy simply slipped over on Bolton. That is not Bolton’s way.

The American people have John Bolton, and only John Bolton, to blame for the presence of the self-serving Vindman twins on the NSC staff. We have only Bolton to blame for empowering this gossipy pair and their confidants who have made a mockery of the common-sense security precept of “need to know.”

Ahh, but we have Trump to blame for keeping them on, and not giving them the Bolton bum’s rush instead. Still, it’s most satisfying to see the flimsy house of cards he constructed come crashing down on his monstrously swollen head.

Britain regains independence

I never thought I’d see the day, truly I didn’t.

Britain’s iconic Union Flag was ceremoniously lowered, folded, and taken away in the European Council building in Brussels ahead of Brexit at 11 p.m. on January 31st.

Video of the history-making moment shows a sombre atmosphere as EU functionaries lower the flag of what had been one of the bloc’s top economic and military powers — powerful imagery symbolising the island nation setting out as a free-standing democracy once again and the diminishment of what is now a 27-member confederation.

Might Farage’s and Johnson’s unexpected victory inspire a drive for withdrawal in other dissatisfied member-nations still under the thumb of this decrepit WW2 relic? We’ll see, I guess. But for now, Merrie Olde England has, against all odds and to however slight a degree, reestablished governance in accord with the will of its people. And that’s always something worth celebrating.

Update! EUrocrats, shabby and spiteful to the bitter end—like all bureaucrats everywhere.

Brexit goes through today, and Britain is finally independent, free from the clutches of the European Union. It’s a great event regardless of how it happens, but in this case, it was cool beyond description. 

It all ended with a pretty amazing flourish, one that told us a lot about both the European Commission and newly sovereign Britain itself. Chief Brexiteer Nigel Farage made his last speech before the European Commission, which was a great scolding and call to shut down the whole operation altogether, which was subversive enough. But he drove it even farther. 

Farage and his buddies ended the whole thing by explicitly waving the British flag of sovereignty right in the faces of all the angry little European Commission eurocrats, even as they sputtered and cut off his mic.

What freedom-loving person couldn’t love it? Breathes there a man with soul so dead

Metaphor, anyone? It was the mother of all metaphors, a Britain that asserted its sovereignty in waving its symbolic flag as its soulless eurocrat masters got angry and tried to stop it, not on political grounds, not because they were afraid the other member-states might follow, but on petty rules grounds, little administrative state foot-stamping, insisting on cookie-cutter order and obedience, no exceptions, in the face of a newly freed state that just asserted that it can do what it wants.

That last is what REALLY frosts the EU-rats’ withered, desiccated little nuts. Again, like all bureaucrats, all around the world. Seems to me this auspicious, thrilling occasion calls for running the famous Sixth Canto of Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem in its entirety:

Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;

For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

Well said, cousin. Yes, I know Scott was actually a Scotsman, not Ainglish. But I can call him a small-c cousin anyhoo, seeing as how I’m through-and-through Scots-Irish myself, on my mom’s side. So there.

Hostile takeover

At last, some good news.

In Major Deal, The Babylon Bee Purchases Competing Satire Site CNN
U.S.—The Babylon Bee has been the world’s best satire site for thousands of years, spawning dozens of secular knock-offs that just aren’t quite as good.

The site announced a new acquisition this week, one that immediately made the site the largest satirical site on the planet: a purchase of competing satire site CNN for $12 billion. The move more than quadrupled the site’s catalog of hilarious, satirical articles.

“We’ve long admired CNN’s ability to parody leftist media organizations so effortlessly, and we’re thrilled to have them under The Babylon Bee’s umbrella,” said site CEO Seth Dillon. “When you can’t compete with hilarious satire like CNN, you obviously look for ways to get them on your team, and an acquisition seemed to make the most sense.”

The new conglomerate organization will be called BNN. CNN writers and hosts will be instructed to simply keep doing what they’re doing.

Great news for sure, but a decision not without risk. I mean, there’s always the possibility, be it ever so remote, that the perenially-floundering Most Busted Name in News might drag the Bee’s ratings straight into the toilet with them.

The common touch

A man of the people.



And that’s just what he did.

Trump has demonstrated his love and respect for ordinary, working-stiff Americans plenty of other times over the years, and it isn’t hard to figure out why. Just for one thing, how much time do you figure the man might have spent slogging around in muddy construction sites, cheek-by-jowl with the roughneck types working for him on various projects? He’s a fabulously wealthy man, yes, but a most rare type of one: he never forgot who it was that helped make him wealthy in the first place, that his fortune wasn’t made all on his own, but as part of a team. He’s made his deep, abiding love for his country and the people who built it and keep it running more than clear.

Now, compare and contrast: can any of you seriously imagine HILLARY!™ eagerly jumping out of her up-armored, blacked-out limo, sidestepping her full-auto-equipped bodyguards, to go press some of that good ol’ Deplorable flesh? Or coming off as anything but smarmy, supercilious, and utterly false if she ever did?

Hell no, you can’t. It’s simply inconceivable; it contradicts absolutely everything we know about the wretched, sozzled old shrew’s character, personality, and instincts. Her overweening sense of entitlement, of her own presumed Elite status, would prevent her from ever harboring such a notion. Likewise Barky, likewise any of the other Klowns in the Democrat-Socialist Kar. Well, okay, Senile Uncle Gropey might, if he thought there was any likelihood of either A) glommable bribe money, or B) a few approachable, sniffable underage girls hanging around the job site. And even then, he’d botch the whole blasted thing somehow.

Cunning and devious as they are, for some reason the Democrat-Socialists obviously can’t begin to grasp how to pull something like this off successfully. In fact, it would never occur to them at all. It’s kinda curious when you think about it. But it would never occur to Trump NOT to do it, and as the vid demonstrates, there’s no stopping him when it does.

This, I remind you, even as the Shampeachment smear-job staggers on to its disgraceful conclusion. As Glenn wryly notes, Trump sure doesn’t seem much bothered by that dumpster fire, now does he? Betcher life that any of those firemen who weren’t Trump supporters before this are rock-solid for him now.

Watch the video—I have, about ten times today, with an irrepressible chuckle each and every time I showed it to somebody—and tell me how it’s possible not to just love the guy. For all his faults, he’s still the best damned President this country ever had, and we’re damned lucky to have him.

Whither to?

We already know what kind of government we have. What we’re going to find out next is what kind of country we have. Schlichter poses the question: what now?

What now is that you continue with the momentum from the rally and before. This is an insurgency – a peaceful one, despite the “de-escalate” crap your Jazz Singing’ chief executive is shoveling – and you need to keep up the pressure. This is about guns, which are the backstop of freedom but the liars and losers of the media want to pretend you don’t think so. They want to pretend you are looking for a chance to commit violence. They want to pretend you want to hurt people. That’s how they plan to delegitimize you.

Don’t fall for it.

We talk a lot about the obligation of others to observe our Constitution in letter and spirit, but we have that obligation too. We must use the processes the Founders laid down to achieve our goals. The steps outlined above, like taking the issue to the people in the next election and using the courts to vindicate our rights, are the foundation of our Constitution. Our Constitution is a tough old guy, and it can take this punch from those Dem weenies and stand right back up.

Virginia, you made America proud on January 20th. You defied your dishonest and obnoxious governor, who was crossing his fingers hoping for trouble. You defied the media liars who called you horrible names. You defied the few fools and cretins who showed up at the rally looking for trouble. You came out in the cold, normal Americans, proud and patriotic, and demanded your liberties peacefully, powerfully and gloriously.

Now you have to finish the fight. Organize. Vote. And never give in.

You will win.

Correction: the fight will NEVER be truly finished. Not as long as even one, count ’em, (1) Democrat-Socialist holds office of even the least consequence, up (down?) to and including dog catcher or USPS branch 2nd assistant deputy manager. And should Americans wise up and refuse to grant power of even the most insignificant sort to one of these red-in-tooth-and-claw slime molds, we’ll still need to remain vigilant—continuously, and forever. Rights not most scrupulously, jealously guarded have a way of becoming rights lost…or taken.

In other words, rights don’t protect us; WE must protect THEM. The Founders knew this—and said so, repeatedly and explicitly. As I’ve said myself so many times regarding the supposed inability of the Constitution they bequeathed us to safeguard our most basic rights: the fault is not in our stars, but in ourselves. The Constitution didn’t fail us; we failed the Constitution.

Richmond provided a first step towards answering the question of what kind of country we have—no more than a small one, perhaps, but a step nonetheless. Yes, the chance of any such gatherings ever stopping further gun-grabber legislation is slim to nonexistent. But I’m coming around to the belief that they’re useful just the same, in other ways. The statement made by the VCDL’s protest this week assured their supporters that they are by no means alone out there. It made the same point crystal-clear to their—our—adversaries. As I always say: that ain’t nothing.

Even small victories are still victories, after all. And sometimes they can lead to bigger ones.

Hold that line

I rarely watch these things, and can’t recollect ever embedding one here. Which just tells you how hair-on-fire, gott-dang good this one is.


WHOA, that’s good squishy! Related verbiage:

(The) closing line echoed McConnell’s blistering speech the day after Democrats in the House voted to impeach President Trump.

“The Senate’s duty is clear,” he declared. “Only one outcome will preserve core precedents rather than shatter them into bits in a fit of partisan rage.” McConnell urged the Senate to reject the articles of impeachment in order to “serve the stabilizing, institution-preserving, fever-breaking role for which the United States Senate was created.”

Indeed, that is the role of the Senate — and Republican senators would be wise to heed the message. As of Tuesday night, it appears they have. Every single Republican senator voted against Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) amendment to subpoena the Trump administration for documents. The line is holding.

Senate Repubs sure-damned better see that it continues to do just that. Should they falter on this, one of the gravest responsibilities they ever have or ever will confront, the consequences could very well swamp not just them but the nation itself.

Gloves: OFF

Shut ’em the fuck DOWN.

The Democrats just lost their third battle of Trump’s impeachment trial as the Senate voted against subpoenaing Ukraine documents THREE TIMES.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wanted to subpoena the White House for documents regarding Ukraine and his amendment got tabled in a 47-53 vote along party line.

Schumer’s amendment requested documents related to Trump’s phone calls to the Ukrainian government and ‘delayed’ military aid.

The Democrats also asked for any communications from White House staffers and their efforts to investigate crooked Joe Biden.

In a separate second request, Democrats asked for State Department documents related to Ukraine and copies of Rudy Giuliani’s communications.

Republicans voted to reject the subpoena for State Department documents again in a 47-53 vote.

The Senate again voted to reject another amendment requesting to subpoena documents from the Office of Management and Budget.

‘Cocaine’ Mitch vowed to table ‘premature’ amendments, “Nobody — nobody will dictate Senate procedure to the United States Senators.” he said.

Nor should they be allowed to. Letting the Dem-Soc scum turn the already-risible Shampeachment into another Schiff circus would be an egregious, unpardonable mistake which could very well break the Republican party like Humpty Dumpty. As canny a professional politician as he is, McConnell has to know that. For him to proceed otherwise would be to open a Pandora’s box likely to create disastrous havoc reaching far beyond the confines of the Senate chamber.

Update! Teh Ted brings the pain.

In a move that likely foreshadows the bare-knuckle fights ahead, the seven House impeachment managers appointed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Tuesday attacking his role on the Trump defense team while alleging he is a “fact witness” to the events in question.

But Sen. Ted Cruz struck back hard in a Facebook post with an argument few Democrats likely want to face.

Describing the letter as “Democrats’ opening salvo,” the Texas Republican had one question: What do they say about Rep. Adam Schiff?

“The Sixth Amendment provides the accused the right ‘to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense,’” Cruz wrote. “Note that the Sixth Amendment does not apply to the prosecution; it protects only the accused. Under the standard put forth by the House Democrats today — that any potential fact witness cannot serve as counsel in the impeachment hearing — there is an obvious person who should be disqualified: Adam Schiff.

“Schiff, it has been alleged, spoke directly with the so-called ‘whistle-blower’ and may even have helped him draft the complaint that launched this entire impeachment.

“So, maybe we should disqualify Schiff as a lawyer, and schedule him instead as a witness to explain his role in creating the ‘evidence’ in this proceeding?”

“Maybe”? No sir, ain’t no “maybe” to it. Put the lying, pencil-necked, bug-eyed shitstain under oath and grill his ass but good. Then put him in cuffs and shackles, dress him in an orange jumpsuit, toss him in a bus with bars on the windows, and march his puny punk ass off to federal lockdown with a sign around his neck saying “Free chew-toy!” Lather, rinse, repeat with Comey, Brennan, Strookzzzzcchkkk, Page, Clapper, and the whole goddamned gang of Klown Kar Koup conpirators right the way up to Ogabe himself.

Then Trump should repeal FISA; dismantle the FBI root, branch, and bough; sharply snap the CIA to heel, and remind them of what their job is actually supposed to be; and hold each and every Foggy Bottom department up by the ankles, shaking violently and pounding their heads against the ground until they all vomit and pass out. Go through the Deep State swamp like a tornado through a trailer park, until not one brick is left standing upon another. Burn the ruins, scatter the ashes, and salt the earth under them.

While we’re at it, the Prez should then hold a press conference to announce that, effective ten minutes ago, all press passes and privileges heretofore adhering to CNN, MSNBC, the WaPo, the NYT, and ABCBNBPBS are officially revoked, and that any “journalists” tarrying about the White House grounds at precisely five minutes from now will be arrested for criminal trespass and, possibly, conspiracy to commit terrorism. Announce that a federal bounty of 25,000 US dollars has now been issued for the delivery of the scalp of Jim Acosta, Shep Smith, Brian “Tater” Stelter, Paul Krugman, Rachel Madcow, Jessica Valenti, or Bill Maher for starters, with another 25k bonus for bringing in the entire pelt. More names to be added later.

Then have lunch, and take a nice nap.

Yeah, I know, I know. But a guy can dream, can’t he?

Richmond AAR

First, I must admit to being entirely too pessimistic right along when it came to the likely outcome of this thing. Credit is due to the VCDL, who if nothing else managed to demonstrate to ordinary Virginians who may not feel as strongly as VCDL’ers do about the 2A that the real threat of violence does NOT come from law-abiding gun owners. They showed themselves to be calm, rational, reasonable Americans who are willing to expose themselves to great hazard to exercise their Constitutional rights, both First and Second, peaceably.

No, it is not in the least likely that any meaningful number of minds were changed by the protest. It’s a lead-pipe cinch that no Democrat-Socialist politicians will rethink a damned thing; they’ll be back again, and again, and again, until gun owners either knuckle under or a not-insignificant percentage of them are swinging from lampposts, or at least given a ride on a rail sporting a new tar and feather suit.

But was it worth doing anyway? I dunno; my feelings on that are a bit mixed. Looked at from a purely pragmatic angle, the protest made little or no real difference. The Democrat-Socialist gun-grabber legislation remains in play, wending its way through the Virginia legislature regardless, with more and even worse in the pipeline. A pre-Lobby Day post from Cam Edwards examines the details:

As we get closer to Virginia’s Lobby Day on Monday, I’m seeing more and more hyberbolic posts on social media about how Virginia is now under the thumb of a tyrant, misinformation about non-existent bills being signed into law, and other attempts to gain attention or stoke people’s fear and anger.

To say this isn’t helpful is an understatement. We’re currently just a few weeks into Virginia’s legislative session, and the fact is, not one bad bill has become a bad law. Nothing’s been signed by the governor yet. In fact, nothing has even gotten to his desk at the moment. We’ve had three gun control bills pass out of the Senate, but the House hasn’t even had a single committee hearing on any gun control legislation. In fact, Virginia gun owners are actually having an impact on the debate in the legislature, thanks to the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement that’s swept across the state and has led to tens of thousands of engaged citizens contacting their lawmakers to oppose Ralph Northam’s gun control agenda.

I don’t believe that Northam has the authority to institute his gun ban in Capitol Square, but unfortunately the Virginia State Supreme Court didn’t reach the merits of the case brought by VCDL and GOA. Instead, the court ruled that the groups didn’t file the necessary paperwork with the Court, and refused the petition, leaving open the question of whether or not the governor has overstepped his constitutional authority.

As for Northam’s gun control legislation, here’s where things actually stand right now…

Clearly the civic engagement of gun owners in Virginia is helping to mitigate some of the worst of these bills. We are having a positive impact on some pieces of legislation, and the Democrats are far from unified in what their gun control bills should look like. It’s one thing to cut a campaign ad promising “common sense gun safety measures.” It’s another thing entirely to actually write a piece of legislation that isn’t a total mess.

Gun owners in the state of Virginia need to keep contacting their lawmakers to politely but firmly urge them to reject Northam’s gun control agenda. Now is a time for civic engagement, not civil war. Even if the worst of these bills become horrible laws, they can and will be challenged in court. Virginia gun owners need to play the long game right now. We are making a difference at the state legislature, but that will likely change if there is any violence during Monday’s Lobby Day.

Thankfully, there wasn’t any. In another post, Edwards highlights a real jawdropper:

The Second Amendment Sanctuary movement is alive and well, even in the state of New Jersey, where Cape May County freeholders unanimously approved a resolution this week declaring the county a “sanctuary” for gun owners. As NJ.com reports, the move comes just a couple of weeks ahead of a campaign rally for President Donald Trump.

NJ.com goes on to say that “nearly half of Virginia’s counties” have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries, but according to the Virginia Citizens Defense League the current tally is 91 of Virginia’s 95 counties, along with 45 cities and towns in the state.

For now Cape May is the only county in the state to adopt such a resolution, but as the website notes, two towns in the northern part of the state adopted similar language in late 2019. Other counties and townships may soon follow.

New JERSEY? Wow. I didn’t see THAT coming. Like, ever. Who knows, maybe some few NJ fence-sitters might find the example set in Richmond this week reassuring, and inspire a gradual, step-by-step migration over to the right side of the issue.

As I said, I’m conflicted about all this. Herschel’s view is probably closest to my own at the moment:

Don’t get me wrong. I sincerely appreciate the folks who could make it today. I had initially intended to go despite my belief that it was a perfect opportunity for a false flag event. I changed my mind when I found out about the cages. I reconsidered when I saw that the rally was big enough to accommodate armed folks outside the cages, but I had to work today. I think it would have been nice to be there with like minded folks.

But this isn’t the end. It’s only the beginning.

Now the real battle begins. It’s going to be vitally important in the very near future for Virginians to know where their county Sheriff stands, or where there city police stands, and to know where their neighbors stand. The real work will be taking local county commissioners and Sheriffs out for coffee, fisking their true intentions, personal training, organizing a militia, and making sure that communities stand together when the time comes to defy the laws.

Defiance of the laws means no state agent arrests citizens for ownership of MSRs or standard capacity magazines. It means counties are sincere, clear-headed and intentional in their opposition to unconstitutional laws, and it means that they know the cost and are willing to bear it.

This will have to be done by Virginians, while everyone else tends to life back in their own communities and presses forward with the same sorts of plans. It was always going to be this way. A rally was never going to stop the controllers.

But what it does do is prepare the ground. When the state is surprised that there is armed opposition to enforcement of the gun laws, your community can honestly say, “We warned you and you didn’t listen. The warnings are finished, and froggy time has begun. Lie in the bed you made.”

Public protest is undeniably part of the blood, bone, and sinew of this nation, going all the way back to the Boston Tea Party. In more recent history, mass protest didn’t end the Vietnam War, abortion, or the war/occupation/whatever it is in Iraq and Afghanistan. Protests, marches, and rallies didn’t resolve racial discord or mend relations between the (two! TWO!) sexes. Nor have they had any discernable impact on climate change, famine in Africa, poverty in Detroit, or murder in Chicago.

But in evaluating the usefulness (if any) of the Richmond event and other such protests, surely the passage I boldfaced above is worth taking into consideration too. If the only worthwhile result of events like Monday’s Lobby Day march is to provide a little reinforcement and inspiration to our like-minded fellows—a confidence-builder, a morale-booster, however slight—well, that ain’t nothing. A little encouragement in the right place, at the right time, can lead to great things. Even a presumably trivial nudge can act on the right sort of person as a tonic of unimaginable strength.

But, to invert Herschel’s statement: this is indeed only the beginning. It cannot, MUST not, be the end. If the good feeling generated amongst gun owners by Richmond inspires them to sit back, rest on their laurels, and let their guard down, then all may well be lost. Because the only thing we know for certain is that the Left will never, ever stop.

Truth hurts

Suck it up, buttercups.

Republican Arizona Sen. Martha McSally ripped into CNN Capitol Hill reporter Manu Raju on Thursday, calling him a “liberal hack” after he asked a question about President Donald Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial.

“Sen. Martha McSally, a Republican facing a difficult election race, lashed out when I asked if she would consider new evidence as part of the Senate trial,” Raju, a University of Wisconsin graduate tweeted Thursday.

That would be treacherous, double-dealing John McStain’s old seat, in case you didn’t know already.

The freshman Arizona senator then responded by posting a video of the exchange to her Twitter account, doubling down on her contention that Raju is a “liberal hack.”

Then she started selling “liberal hack” merchandise, bless her stout, very un-McCain-like heart. Which most edifying sequence of events, naturally, drove the liberal hacks of Enemedia right into quivering paroxysms of terror at such a vicious, brutal “assault.”

Anchor Wolf Blitzer said on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room” that Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) calling CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju a “liberal hack” was “disgusting.”

Blitzer said, “Manu, I want to ask you something that happened today with you up on Capitol Hill when you attempted to air a very fair, serious, important question to Republican Senator Martha McSally of Arizona. A question about the upcoming trial in the Senate.”

Blitzer said, “Yeah, it’s awful. I take it, she or her staff, no one has reached out to apologize to you, have they?”
Raju said, “I have not heard from them at all.”

Blitzer said, “If they did the right thing, she would personally call you and say, ‘I’m sorry.’ It was an awful, awful thing that she did.”

LOLgetfucked, you sniveling, gutless pussies. Right in the liver, with a rusty railroad spike.

That’s how you do it

Aesop, after posting several items pointing out the potential pitfalls of the VCDL’s upcoming Richmond rally, has a better idea.

1000 brainless yahoos fapping in the park at the statehouse are a juicy target for the leftards, the media, and the minions of jackbooted thuggery. And the dimmest bulbs among your ranks are target-locked on being the meal in that particular shark feeding frenzy. Why is a mystery, unless arsenic in your wells, a pandemic of fetal alcohol syndrome, and a steady juvenile diet of lead paint chips. Just stop. The question of why you shouldn’t do that has been asked and answered here times beyond counting.

But 500 or 1000 folks at the county meeting or sheriff’s office is a voting bloc that won’t be ignored. Because how in hell did all y’all get those 2A sanctuary votes pushed through? Hmmm???

So how about leading with your strength, instead of your chin for a change?

Dear Sheriff Dawg,
We, the citizens of Bugtussle County, respectfully require that you come up with a plan to deputize auxiliary deputies, to prevent or oppose any unconstitutional enforcement actions in Bugtussle County, effective ASAP.  – signed, 500 registered voters

If he does it, you’ve just grown fangs for liberty teeth. If not, you’ve identified that he was just paying lip service, and needs to go in the next election, if not sooner.

That sounds like it might be pretty danged effective to me. He goes on to lay out several more along those lines, then mentions the benefits, including:

The fact that you’ll also provide a ready manpower pool of demonstrated competence for helping your friends and neighbors with wee problems like hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, floods, fire, and other emergencies, is merely a happy side benefit.

Long before this, Gov. Blackface Babykiller and his idiot minions in the legislature are going to be crapping their pants, and falling all over themselves to back water on their jackassical antigun plans.

And you’ll have the framework of a fearsome political machine to get out the vote and spank them out of town at the next election opportunity (hot tar and chicken feathers optional, but heartily recommended.)

But just to be safe, your auxiliary and the sheriff should release information to the effect that any attempt to decapitate your leadership, by sequestration, detention, or arrest of TPTB, will constitute a de facto automatic call-up of the entire force, until further notice, and no stand-down will happen until the sheriff and the people of the county agree to it mutually and publicly.

Mess with one of us, mess with all of us.

I like it. It ought to be tried; it just might be last thing standing between us and genuine catastrophe, one from which we may well never recover. Surely we owe it to ourselves to find out.

WW3 CANCELLED!

Shhh, don’t anybody tell David French, the Treasoncrats, or Bill “Kuck Kluck” Krystal. They’ll be crushed.

If you went to bed early Tuesday, you were surprised to wake up Wednesday and learn that World War III has been delayed. No doubt you were also shocked that Iran blinked, oil prices were tumbling and the stock market was soaring.

Once again, the Chicken Little chorus got everything all wrong. The sky isn’t falling and Donald Trump pulled off a huge victory. Oh, and he’s still president.

That last is the part that hurts ’em most of all.

Iran’s decision to pretend it was retaliating for the death of Qassem Soleimani by lobbing ineffective missiles is terrific news for America and freedom-loving people everywhere. So was Trump’s Wednesday offer of negotiations, which he wrapped in even tougher economic sanctions and warnings against any new attacks on Americans.

Over the last week, the president has put on a clinic in seeking peace while projecting strength. Just don’t expect to find the outcome described that way in the New York Times or on CNN.

Comically, the Times tried to turn America’s victory into defeat, with its top headline declaring that “Trump Backs Away From Further Military Conflict With Iran.” Imagine the headline if he had chosen the military option.

Still, if you’re keeping score at home, this marks approximately 1 million times Trump has escaped a doomsday certainty. Alas, his survival only seems remarkable because he has such fools for opponents. And I don’t refer just to the Iranians.

Heh. Okay, that bit’s pretty sweet for sure. But this one’s my favorite:

It’s true that if any Democrat or your average Republican were sitting in the Oval Office, Soleimani would still be strutting around the Mideast, spreading mayhem and death like an evil Johnny Appleseed. But that’s only because no other politicians on the stage have Trump’s America First convictions and the courage to act on them.

And the solid-brass balls not to give a flying fuck at a plate glass window whether his domestic enemies approve or not, too.

Update! Did somebody mention Trump not giving a flying etc just now?

During the rally tonight in Ohio President Trump blasted lying pencil-neck Adam Schiff.

Via 100% Fed Up:

President Trump: “Adam, you little pencil-neck… He has the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it is loose.”

I ask again: how could any Real American not love the guy? The only thing about this that bothers me is that I’m afraid he might’ve said a lot more that wasn’t transcribed, and I missed it.

Down-update! Sinking like a rock—in certain quarters.

U.S.—President Trump’s approval rating among terrorists hit an all-time low today according to a CNN poll. This comes just days after he killed several of them. 

Of those surveyed, only six percent of terrorists–mostly white nationalists–said they approve of Trump’s performance. Of the 94 percent who disapproved, just half said they would like to see the president dead. The others claimed they would be perfectly happy with a pallet full of cash.

I bet so. Actually, though, I’m just fine with sending more pallets o’ cash to Ragheadistan—as long as they’re dropped from high altitude without a ‘chute, directly onto their empty heads.

All the marbles

Wow, looks like the gun grabbers don’t give a damn WHO knows they’re fascists anymore.

Breaking: Virginia vows to shut down all gun ranges not owned by the state

Clearly, they are NOT taking the 2A sanctuary movement at all seriously. They must be shown the error of their ways, or all will be lost.

According to House Bill 567, any indoor shooting range would be prohibited by law – UNLESS it was inside of a building owned by the state. 

And any business owners who decided to defy the law could be facing up to a $100,000 fine and potential civil penalties.

According to the bill, which has not yet been voted on or approved, would prohibit” the operation of an indoor shooting range, defined in the bill, in any building not owned or leased by the Commonwealth or federal government.”

For those that would be staying open, the state wants them to act as a data collecting operation, creating a state-controlled list of who is using the range as well as their photo ID and home address.

Let’s be clear. This is a very real threat against the rights laid out in the Constitution. Americans have the right to defend themselves. And the state is literally trying to stop gun owners from training and improving their skills.

This is an attack on our liberties. 

Well, duh! Of COURSE it is. The Democrat-Socialists are vehemently opposed to any and all liberties, and firmly believe that the common serf has absolutely no rights their rulers are obligated to respect. Virginians stupidly voted them into power last time around; now they get to pay the price for that most grievous mistake, by either surrendering their most basic rights…or risking life, limb, and livelihood fighting to preserve them.
