F*ck Ashli Babbitt

Too provocative? Maybe. But no more so that an elected United States Representative [and QAnon asshat] Paul Gosar [R, AZ] when he maligned law enforcement, asking FBI Director Wray:

“Do you know who executed Ashli Babbitt?” and “The Capitol police officer that did this shooting appeared to be hiding, lying in wait and then gave no warning before killing her.” See how he frames the actions of the LEO, but not Babbitt?

I have no animosity against Babbitt, she was an anti-American useful idiot. I most certainly harbor sincere animosity against those in positions of authority who would attempt to martyr her in the pursuit of a lie. The unnamed Capitol Police Officer who fired the lethal shot, was manning the barricade [with a mere three other officers] that constituted the inner, and last ring of defense outside the House Chambers……not as some elected Representatives have claimed, the insurrectionists being “like normal tourists”, or “staying within the rope lines”……..but rather violently assaulting U.S. Capitol and its police, and breaking through doors and windows to gain entry.

Sheep attempting to exculpate the ‘deep state’ elites and their sycophants in pursuit of a lie [in the absence of any credible facts], are guilty of everything the acolytes of the charlatan claim in the opposite. And they should pay….dearly.

Cultists Gone Wild

I’d really like to hear even one cultist, who thinks that Trump can be “reinstated” (even though he lost the election)……and who claim that they live and die by the Constitution…….explain where this mechanism exists in said Constitution.

I’ll be left waiting of course…..

You’re Constantly Being Lied To…..

An attorney for DC Police said in court, for the first time, that the department did indeed use tear gas on protesters around Lafayette Square Park last June. Protesters and the ACLU are suing federal police, and MPD, over their use of tear gas.

MPD has consistently said that it was “not involved” in what happened at Lafayette Square Park on June 1, 2020 when protesters were forcefully cleared minutes before former President Donald Trump walked to St. John’s Episcopal Church.

WUSA9 collected evidence and showed video that proved federal police agencies fired tear gas canisters at protesters at and around Lafayette Square Park on June 1.

Why do you put up with it?

Pardoned War Criminal Confesses to War Crime

Nearly two years after being found not guilty of killing an unarmed ISIS fighter, retired Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher has made an earth-shattering admission: Neither he nor any of the other SEALs on the scene tried to save the wounded fighter’s life.

“The grain of truth in the whole thing is that that ISIS fighter was killed by us, and that nobody at that time had a problem with it,” Gallagher said during an interview for the finale of “The Line” podcast, which aired on Tuesday.

“We killed that guy,” Gallagher continued. “Our intention was to kill him. Everybody was on board.”

Remember, Eddie is a hero to a certain faux-macho demographic….

On Hiatus

No surprise to any one who still checks in here. There’s simply no free time…and no interest to be honest. At least for now.

I’m deployed again, and have been for a bit now. The Iranians and their proxies demand just about all of my attention…which further compels me to wonder why the hell we’re still over here. That we’re here to defend Iraq against ISIS, is a canard that is well past it’s expiration date. We’re here to keep the eastern Syrian oil fields out of the hands of the Syrians themselves [how’s that for respecting someone’s national sovereignty?]. Remember that if we [or a certain ‘third party’] attack Iran in the waning days of the Trump Regime….or if they strike first. If it happens, remember why our sons and daughters were sacrificed…..

At home, the Leftists and the Trump Cultists continue to try and out-stupid themselves in the race to see who can destroy the Republic and piss on the Constitution more, or quicker. Snowflakes and beta-boi’s on both sides….some dressed in black and some in their airsoft finery….all trying to compensate for poor life choices and low self-esteem….make me glad that I can retreat to my homestead upon my departure from one shithole country to return to an emerging shithole country.

Yep, my country is becoming an embarrassing example on par with so many others…..’exceptionalism’ my ass. And, I’ve earned the right to think such.

Punked by their own words…yet again…

“The consequences to the republic for overthrowing a democratic election because you don’t like the result — because you believe that the election was somehow corrupted, when in fact, the evidence shows that it was not. That’s an interesting approach. I think it’s crazy, frankly” – Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), early 2020

This won’t matter to the seditionists, cosplaying electors or airsofting commandos……but normally anytime one utters anything contrary to the Trump Cult, they are tarred and feathered with the moronic and undefined moniker of “deep state”.

The Post-Election Tantrum in a Nutshell

From the reliably Conservative Andrew McCarthy at National Review, on 13 Dec:

So what happened in Wisconsin?

Judge Ludwig denied the state’s claims that the campaign lacked standing. Instead, he gave the campaign the hearing they asked for — the opportunity to call witnesses and submit damning exhibits. Yet, when it got down to brass tacks, the morning of the hearing, it turned out there was no actual disagreement between the Trump team and Wisconsin officials about the pertinent facts of the case. The president’s counsel basically said: Never mind, we don’t need to present all our proof . . . we’ll just stipulate to all the relevant facts and argue legal principles.

In the end, after all the heated rhetoric, what did they tell the court the case was really about? Just three differences over the manner in which the election was administered — to all of which, as Ludwig pointed out, the campaign could have objected before the election if these matters had actually been of great moment.

There was no there there. Despite telling the country for weeks that this was the most rigged election in history, the campaign didn’t think it was worth calling a single witness. Despite having the opportunity of a hearing before a Trump appointee who was willing to give the campaign ample opportunity to prove its case, the campaign said, “Never mind.”

The legal arguments were not much more weighty than the vacant factual presentation.

The Trump team started out as audaciously on claimed constitutional violations as it had been on public allegations of fraud. It claimed Wisconsin officials had run roughshod over the Constitution’s Electors Clause, Due Process Clause, Equal Protection Clause, and First Amendment — the array of allegations they’ve made in other battleground states as well. When it became clear, however, that the court was willing to entertain the president’s case but would scrutinize it closely, the Trump team quickly dropped the First Amendment and Due Process claims. In addition, as Ludwig recounts, the president’s counsel “offer[ed] no clue of a coherent Equal Protection theory,” and “offered neither evidence nor argument to support such a claim.”

And the money shot: But every time a court offers him an opportunity to establish by proof what he is promoting by Twitter, Team Trump folds. Why is that?

Smoking Kraken *Updated*

No, not a play on “smoking gun“, a play on “smoking crack“.

I’ve not commented much here recently due to my workload, and certainly not on Trump’s refusal to concede the election…..primarily because the soap opera drama and utterly juvenile legal challenges seem to shift, twirl and change on a daily basis.

But I’m fascinated by the pathology of those who not only think that Biden [or some multi-named nefarious entity] “stole” the election….who believe that Trump actually won by a landside….but the also the sheer mythology they’ve created and bought into along the way.

Sidney Powell [of whom I was told on another site, was a sign of…..”serious lawyering“….heh], has been spouting off about a “Kraken”…..allegedly a DoD Cyber Warfare program that was either employed to steal the election on behalf of the “deep state” [meaningless and undefined moniker] or will actually expose such evil deeds. Powell [once a much respected attorney] publicly announced a few days ago, that she has “released” such a beast. Crickets…..

Other conspiracy-minded folk including retired General Tom McInerney [a staunch war hawk, regime-change advocate and reliable right-winger…he’s a real piece of work] have claimed that there was actually a firefight in Germany between CIA elements and Army Special Operations units, over an alleged seizure of a server that somehow held evidence of such electoral chicanery. Whew.

And to top it off, these people claim that the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion at Fort Huachuca, AZ…is the site of or manipulator of, said “Kraken”. Yep, an Army Basic Training unit is responsible for the Republic-ending calamity that now faces us……

At this point, to be believable……one would have to offer that nearly every person or entity in this nation, outside of the Trump legal team….is in on the great con against Lil’ Donnie. Someone is being trolled here.

I remain sad for what’s left of our Republic…..but also utterly fascinated.

*UPDATE* Commenter Paul posed a question where my response included the potential for a Martial Law declaration. Lo and behold, that same call [tweeted out by toxic leader and persistent national security risk Michael Flynn], calling for such a declaration, and a new election, ‘overseen’ by the military. Link

Banana Republic……you have arrived.

Wait…I thought the Proud Boys were just “pro-Western Values”…..

Infighting has broken out between two leading members of the Proud Boys group, with one announcing he will be taking control of the far-right organisation to address “White Genocide” and the “failures of multiculturalism.”

White nationalist Kyle Chapman—who set up the “tactical defense arm” of the Proud Boys, the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (FOAK)—has criticized the group’s chairman Enrique Tarrio while announcing a so-called rebranding of the organization.

“Due to the recent failure of Proud Boy Chairman Enrique Tarrio to conduct himself with honor and courage on the battlefield, it has been decided that I Kyle Chapman reassume my post as President of Proud Boys effective immediately,” Chapman wrote. “Our logo will forthwith be changed to reflect the core beliefs of Proud Boy members.

“We will no longer cuck to the left by appointing token negroes as our leaders. We will no longer allow homosexuals or other ‘undesirables’ into our ranks. We will confront the Zionist criminals who wish to destroy our civilization.

“We recognize that the West was built by the White Race alone and we owe nothing to any other race.”Link


Good god……between Antifa, Trump cultists, QAnon and these clowns……are there many sane people left in this country? Oh well…..another lie gets exposed. This one is special because they dress up in their finest Airsoft gear and pretend that they’re ‘patriots’.
