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”.

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.

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.

Small Victories

Two notorious charlatans finally caught by the law:

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has filed charges today against two political operatives for allegedly orchestrating a series of robocalls aimed at suppressing the vote in the November general election.

Jack Burkman, 54, and Jacob Wohl, 22, are each charged with:

  • One count of election law – intimidating voters, a five-year felony;
  • One count of conspiracy to commit an election law violation, a five-year felony;
  • One count of using a computer to commit the crime of election law – intimidating voters, a seven-year felony; and
  • Using a computer to commit the crime of conspiracy, a seven-year felony.

The charges were filed today in the 36th District Court in Detroit. Arraignment is pending for the defendants. The Attorney General’s office will be working – with local law enforcement if necessary – to secure the appearance of each defendant in Michigan. It’s too early to say if formal extradition will be necessary or if they will present themselves here voluntarily in the very near future.

Burkman, an Arlington, Virginia resident, and Wohl, a Los Angeles, California resident, allegedly attempted to discourage voters from participating in the general election by creating and funding a robocall targeted at certain urban areas, including Detroit. The calls were made in late August and went out to nearly 12,000 residents with phone numbers from the 313 area code.

I basically did a happy dance when I saw that one of the pieces of excrement was Jacob Wohl……
