Reasons Why I Carry – Example#….OK, I Lost Count

“I’m going in there with 20 strong men, I’m going to speak to the school board and I’m going to give them an option. They can leave or they can be removed ” said Steve Lynch who is running for PA Governor, “Make men men again”, he said during Freedom Rally today.

And….

At protest in Santa Monica today before the vote on mask-mandate, Jason Lefkowitz has the home addresses of each LA City Council member on his sign. He says they are going to the homes of whoever votes for it, and if it passes, it’s “civil war, get your guns.” From @chadloder

Soon is coming the time for patriots to grab muskets from over the mantle, secure shot and ball, and prepare to defend our nation from the Cult of the Unmitigated Asshole. Those self-aggrandized snowflakes who allow their impotent rage to convince them that they’re victims because of <insert baseless reason here>.

A reckoning is indeed coming, but they mistakenly reckon that the cause of Patriots is on their side.

They will be proven wrong.

The Absolute Absurdity that is MTG *Updated*

We don’t need the daily does of Trumpy-thought directly from the source anymore…..there are minions who have stepped into that role nicely. Prolific among them, is one Marjorie Taylor Greene, who today proffered the following statement:

“Do you want to know why you are at home right now being overwhelmed with the news, overwhelmed that the Pfizer vaccine has been FDA approved early?”…….”It was supposed to be approved after Labor Day but magically is being approved today because President Joe Biden said to speed it up. Speed it up.”

Not “I think” or “I believe”….or “it’s possible”. But a bold, definitive statement claiming an action by another. Now, if she had some….any….proof, she would have offered that as evidence. But, alas….she did not, because she does not.

Allow me to play devils advocate for a moment and employ a sad, lazy crutch….just for funsies: “Marjorie Taylor Greene is a liar” – Prove Me Wrong.

Yeah, I still don’t get the fetish with that.

Update: The perpetual motion idiot machine that she is, now decides that since Kamala Harris hasn’t personally flown over to Afghanistan (because that security nightmare would make things better), that she should be impeached…..also. Because….. reasons? Idiocy….yeah.

National F.O.P. Finally Speaks

On Tuesday, the National Fraternal Order of Police decided to “clear up confusion” about its position on the January 6 assault on the Capitol by enraged Donald Trump supporters. “Those who participated in the assaults, looting, and trespassing must be arrested and held to account,” it said in a statement. “We continue to offer our support, gratitude, and love to our brothers and sisters in law enforcement who successfully fought off the rioters, and we will be with them as they grieve and recover, however long that may take.

The FOP does not often have to clarify its position on matters of public concern; the organization is usually rather strident in expressing its views. For example, in 2016, the FOP demanded that Walmart cease selling Black Lives Matter T-shirts. It denounced Nike for its ad campaign involving Colin Kaepernick, who was purged from the NFL for protesting police misconduct. If you go to the FOP’s Twitter feed, you can find a steady stream of clips from conservative outlets such as Newsmax and Fox News showing FOP representatives attacking policies like bail reform, slamming Democratic elected officials, and blaming Black-rights activists for the recent rise in homicides. These posts are interspersed with tributes to homicide victims, attacking “rogue prosecutors,” “activist judges,” and “progressive policies” for their deaths.

Took long enough to at least obliquely refute the canards of “Capitol Police letting everyone in” with or without “hugs and kisses”….of my favorite idiocy that was doubled down upon by the speaker, “was just like any normal tourist group”.

The ~140 LEO injuries reported that day [not to mention the trampling of Roseanne Boyland, who apparently didn’t fit the requisite narrative to be ‘Horst Wessel-ized’ like Babbitt did], gives lie to all that, without the F.O.P.’s tardy statement.

“Back the Blue” has been shown to be yet another bullshit narrative, except when it involved killing unarmed black men. The common remark I’ve see regarding George Floyd, was that “he should have not placed himself in that situation, and should have responded to Officers commands’. Ghost of Ashli Babbitt……are you listening?

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.

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”.

Irony x2

Two choice head scratchers…..that would make a rational person wonder how those that traffic in perfidy and cognitive dissonance, can square the hypocrisy, even in their own mind.

First, The host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News said it was time to stop lying on Monday, hours after the network had to cut away from a string of lies by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

“How do we fix it and bring the country together?” Carlson asked, rhetorically.

“How do we make in America you want to live in? The only answer, the only solution is honesty. Let’s all stop lying,” he urged. “Lying about everything that matters, every day of our lives.”

Possibly, change could start from the top? Heh…..


Secondly…..we’ve already covered how the media “calls” an election. So prior to that night, Trump and his sycophants ‘demanded’ that the winner of the Presidential election be determined on Election Day…..knowing full well that States don’t complete counting, canvassing and certifying votes until weeks later.

Now that Trump has lost the election [baseless allegations and frivolous lawsuits notwithstanding], these same cult members are breathlessly exhorting that “the media doesn’t determine the winner”.

Is it just easier to be stupid…or is it reflexive? But at least the Administration that has been a comedic shitshow….is consistent to the end.

Is this guy for real? Part II *Updated*

Big problems and discrepancies with Mail In Ballots all over the USA. Must have final total on November 3rd. – Donald J. Trump October 27, 2020

Bolding mine.

That’s not that works Little Donnie. Not ever.

Over half of the States in the Union mandate that absentee ballots can not be counted until on or after Election Day. No State certifies its election results on Election Day itself, for reasons obvious to everyone but Trump.

The earliest I found was Delaware with a date of 5 November. All others are beyond that, with many extending into December if necessary.

The media….and only the media, “calls” results on Election Day…based on exit polling and precinct totals.

 So NOW, this guy wants the election called by the “fake news”, based on “fake polls”?

So in essence, Trump is saying that he would rather disenfranchise the votes of our Servicemen & women are are stationed outside of their home state or serving overseas [not to mention anyone else who had a valid reason to vote absentee, or none at all as permitted by their respective state]. Doesn’t seem like “supporting the troops” to me.

Either Trump is stupid…..or he thinks you’re stupid. You decide.

——-Update—–

Jesus, the stupid just doubled down:

Strongly Trending (Google) since immediately after the second debate is CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE? This refers changing it to me. The answer in most states is YES. Go do it. Most important Election of your life!1:53 PM · Oct 27, 2020

Sure, go try and commit voter fraud. Exactly what the Chief Law Enforcement officer in the nation should be telling people to do. Note that he directs this specifically at those who would vote for him. Thus, the answer to the question above is answered.

He thinks you’re stupid

– On edit, it turns out that in some states, you can change your early vote. It’s cute though, that he thinks it’s all Biden voters that had a change of heart…..

Trump just bragged about executing an American Citizen

At his Covid petri-dish rally today:

“We sent in the U.S. Marshals, took 15 minutes and it was over. They knew who he was, they didn’t want to arrest him, and 15 minutes — that ended.”

Yep, the President of the United States bragged to sycophants, that his armed agents of the State, intentionally executed an American Citizen. What the U.S. Marshall’s knew, or intended……is not known…..all we have to go on, is the words of the Enemy of the State.

Trump is a Traitor to the Republic, as are those who keep him in power.

* As an addendum, it appears that Steve Scully got suspended from the venerable C-SPAN for lying about an alleged Twitter hack. Good. Liars and hypocrites are among the lowest forms of life.
