Communist’s Exposed

demoicrats-are-now-communistsIt don’t take a genius to see the Radical left for what they really are, Communist’s.  It’s as if they are following the Communist Manifesto word for word as we get closer to Inauguration Day.  Numerous so called “organizations” are planning all kinds of civil unrest in an attempt to stop the swearing in of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President.  Groups like DisruptJ20 are calling for numerous events to take place.  Project Veritas has released some undercover audio of what may be expected during the festivities this coming week.  Stink bomb attacks, blocking access to numerous events, physical attacks.

Of course, the Conspiracy Theory world is going crazy with all the possibilities, up to and including the use of a suitcase nuke.  I don’t expect much coverage of these things by the Radical Liberal media, coverage will happen online at numerous sites, which I will post as they come available.  It should be an eventful week.  With the Communist politicians exposing their true selves by disparaging Trump and planning to miss the Inauguration and join the protesters, the cat is out of the bag.  The enemy is exposed.  Now how do we deal with them?

    On Wednesday, Jan. 18 scores of radical leftists from the activist group, #DisruptJ20 plan to kick off their devilry “with a bang,” starting with a demonstration in front of Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s house, according to a newly leaked audio tape.

    It’s “our first big activist plan,” a propagandist’s voice can be heard telling a large crowd of cheering radicals who plan to participate in the shenanigans.

    “We got a bunch of folks who are going to be organizing that, it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s going to be his last few days living in Chevy Chase before he moves into the Vice Presidential Residence — and we’re going to send him off with a bang,” the organizer told the crowd.

    A private protest organization is offering $2,500 to participants who’d like to help disrupt the inauguration of the 45th US president, Donald J. Trump.

    A group called Demand Protest has created several online job postings targeting Democrat areas of the country “seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.”

    Claiming to be the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” Demand Protest says they “pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe.”

    “You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” say several job listings in different parts of the country, under the headline, “Get paid fighting against Trump!”

    A source claiming to work for NBC has contacted Infowars to warn of a CNN/Buzzfeed plot to release a damaging video tape of Donald Trump just 48 hours before he is inaugurated as president.

    According to the source, who wishes to remain anonymous, a two minute clip has been cut from out-takes of Trump’s appearances on The Apprentice which is “very damaging” and “nuclear in impact”.

    The tape has been circulating for a while in an effort to attract rich backers such as Mark Cuban or Larry Flynt who would be prepared to take the substantial legal risk of releasing the video.

    However, with Trump’s inauguration looming, “the plan is to leak it to CNN and Buzzfeed (as the ultimate f**k you) on Wednesday at 3pm,” claims the source.

  6. This should not be bothering any of you…..expect it…and who cares. Trump is POTUS….end of sentence. He will do what he wants and the media cannot stop him and they know it. This progressive movement is on the ropes and they know it.

    NOw I have a question for any one that wants to answer it……..Is there any one out there that thinks there can be a single payer system without the government running it? It is very simple and business has been doing it for a long time.

    • Oh, and you have to decide what “single payer” actually means…….and what geographical area does one have to cover? That ought to get some thinking started.

      • gmanfortruth says:

        It is quite possible for insurance companies to get together and have a single business entity handle all payments, but it will be failure and cause more problems than we already have. Two examples of this are the Va and workers comp (even when self insured, same rules apply). The VA’s issues are well documented. Workers comp is a mess, based on my experience and that of friends and relatives (I will never use it again after only using it once, and I didn’t want too then but employer demanded it).

        I would be against any form of single payer, not because it would affect me, because it wouldn’t, but because I don’t think it would work well in the country.

      Answer: No. Govt. will have to be involved for there to be a “Single Payer” system. It may not run it but it will regulate it and have to authorize it.

    Here’s a thought, is the resistance to curtailing “illegal immigration” which is undermining the rule of law in this country, not that we don’t have enough problems already, actually furthering the agenda of those that want more infringement upon the enumerated rights of our citizens in the quise of providing more safety?

    Or are the civil rights liberal leaders actually want another underclass of people that are lower on the socio-economic scale than they are so they can feel superior. In other words really “illegal” so can be manipulated even more by the constant threat of deportation, if you do not do what we want?

    • Just A Citizen says:

      Dale

      There are three reasons for all the illegal immigration, and each is related to the other.

      1. Cheap labor.
      2. Growing Socialist cultural base.
      3. Increase Democratic party voters.

      After watching the disgraceful police actions after the Boston Marathon bombing, which most people deemed acceptable, it would not surprise me if this type of event were to take place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_84

      Politically speaking, I think this may be considered should Trump win a second term combined with the purposeful failure of other methods employed during Trump’s first term. This would have to coincide with some other sort of False Flag to get the majority of Americans to accept it. Claiming that they are joining the Communist Party (blaming Russia again) in droves after all the things they have planned/will attempt to do this week will be a good start. Blaming Russia would be perfect and would force the Democrats to support the roundup.

      Gotta love a good conspiracy theory 😀

    The playbook is now clear. If you’re a big company, the kind that could end up on President-elect Trump’s radar screen and a target of his morning Tweets, you look at any preexisting expansion plans and leak them or announce them, making it look like you’re suddenly newly optimistic about the economy, eager to expand hiring, and happy to credit the president-elect. A few weeks ago, Trump tweeted about General Motors selling about 4,500 Mexican-manufactured Chevy Cruzes in the United States. Now GM is about to announce it will invest $1 billion in U.S. plants over several years.

    The left is getting all hot about “free” education. Sanders, Clinton jumped on and now Cuomo.

    Obviously as we know education as is anything NOT free. Somebody will pay. I dug into some of the education systems of the world, looking mostly at the US vs Russia. Pretty much the education up through secondary school was similar. However, in Russia as also in the former soviet union, at a natural break occured between the 9th year and the rest of secondary school student faced a choice. Go to a technical trade school or continue on in curricula that lead to tertiary, post secondary school (university) Technical schools included nursing and other trades. You did not go to college for these trades or careers. Their colleges generally were very specific and were 6 years. Bachelors and masters all in one. Today, they are usually set up like ours (Bologna style) with one paying for their masters. A bachelors is considered useless so they go on to masters and (pay) We here in the US have roughly 4130 colleges and universities with over 20M enrollees. In Russia they have around 3000 with just over 6M enrollees……clearly they force choices of careers early in the education process, like in HS to stay in trades, where in a way, much of our college training does that or also students taking whatever with no chance of any career in that field….In Russia, moving about in studies once in the university is very rare. The term was used when going to a university it was by reservation……the way I read that was it was not just there to “find oneself” Just reading the list of universities, they were not general studies. Most were very specific in their scholastic programs……our two nations have roughly the same populations. A huge difference between university populations, but in reality how many careers really require university training. Maybe they’re being much more practical?

    Even decades ago in Germany there was a split to go on to higher learning or go the trades route. The prctice may still be in place.

    Government pays all costs through whatever means, and dictates will follow as to what you will do or not do in a way of education. Hard choices will be made. be careful you students, you know not what you are wishing for.

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      I also noted that the US writeups showed 100% literacy rate in the US school systems. That is a stretch…..I assume that is in any language and not the primary one used here in the US (english).

        • There is no love lost between Obama and the Clintons. What if Obama issues a pardon for Hillary but words in such a fashion as to make her look as guilty as she really is? He could pardon her for perjury to congress, passing secret information to unauthorized individuals, withholding government documents, selling access to high office, bribery, and a host of other things possibly even treason. She would be off the hook hence no trial that could lead back to him but would be forever tainted.

          • Dale A Albrecht says:

            I think we will not see that, for the same reason’s Josh Ernest explained today about why Snowden was also not pardoned…..not convicted in a court of law, so nothing to pardon or commute…..but then again when has logical reasoning been consistant in politics

  16. Garth Brooks…..legendary country singer…reknown in Texas and danced to in every country venue down here has been…………….rejected. Garth Brooks was scheduled to be part of the entertainment at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo….and has been cancelled. Garth Brooks was scheduled for several concerts in Fort Worth and Houston…..and tickets sales have dropped to the point that 3/4ths of his appearances have been cancelled.

    He was visibly upset in an interview today as to why people are politicizing this……..REALLY? He pulls out of the Trump inauguration and is asking why it is politicized? You have got to be kidding…he really does not understand the reaction or feels that a reaction is not right? These guys have no concept….they really do not have a concept.

I guess they will just buy each others tickets.

      Remember a few years ago when Garth Brook’s retired from touring? Alan Jackson was asked what he thought about that and Jackson’s response was…..”people only have just so much money to spend attending live shows. All it means is that now more people will come to my shows”…..same outcome will occur.

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        The majority of people like to be entertained by entertainers, not lectured to especially by people who rely on someone else to write their words for them and direct them in their careers. A successful film, TV show, concert tour, has hundreds of people working behind the scenes ensuring that the “Star” is successful. Mess that up and and these people will be amazed how fast producers….the ones who front the money…..will drop them.

        Look at the credits on an old movie….just the main stars, maybe the cinematographer, director. Look at today’s credits and they run longer than the film…..when all these little peoples lives get jeoprodized changes of attitudes will be forthcoming…….keep your opinions to yourselves is what I recommend to the stars, your careers depend on it..

I think even Sean Penn, hey dude, has had a bit of a dry spell after totally supporting Chavez. No apologies for endorsing turning a fairly vibrant and rich country into an absolute shithole.

          • What’s the deal with Venezuela anyway, anyone know? When I was in 7th Grade, Nixon did the VP Latin America tour and was attacked in his limo. Are they still pissed off over the debt crisis of 1907?

        • Dale A Albrecht says:

          critics love movies that have a “MESSAGE” and usually rate them very high, but they also do not understand why for the most part those same films bomb at the box office. Yet movies that they pan tend to do very well, with us plebes. They’re just plain entertainment. If we wanted to be scolded we’d go see our Mother’s.

          If one listens very carefully in many old movies there are in fact jabs and comments on some archaic government policy or another. But they are usually wrapped in a joke or a very innocent comment. If you weren’t subject to the policy, they’re easy to miss and you actually have to go look them up. But the jabs were never the focal point of the film, so the censors usually missed them.

          I like watching for them, like editing mistakes in a film. Atlas rocket on the pad then cuts to a Saturn launching, or take off in a 707 and land in a 747….simple stock footage, they could get the editing right

    I know it is a noble thing to do for Obama deciding to stay in DC for the next two years while his daughter finishes school. Honestly I do not think he has an ounce of caring about anyone but himself….

    However, my gut feel is after appointing some very key staffers to positions in DC, which are fairly innocuous in themselves, he’s setting up a shadow WH where the dems and any opposition to Trump will be beating a path to his door daily, strategising on how to disrupt anything Trump does or attempts to do. He’s keeping his dearest advisors close for a reason..

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already removed 86% of his country’s currency from circulation in an attempt to curb tax evasion, tackle corruption and shut down the shadow economy.

    Should the US follow suit?

    Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist, thinks so. Phasing out currency and moving towards a digital economy would, over the long term, have “benefits that outweigh the cost,” the Columbia University professor said on day one of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos…

    “I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency,” he said, “so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cyber-security, but it would certainly have big advantages.”

    https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/the-us-should-get-rid-of-cash-and-become-a-digital-economy-says-this-nobel-laureate-economist

    Fortunately, this shouldn’t be a concern for 4 to 8 years.

    • So then obviously the getoutoftowninahurry cash in safety deposit boxes or in jelly jars becomes worthless and the government knows about every damn dime you own. What, I ask, could possibly go wrong with that?

      • gmanfortruth says:

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      Digital currency just makes it easier for the government to get it’s fair share and then some when it has some shortfalls. People move money underground to avoid what they perceive as a corrupt government. I’d like to see how the masses of people that are not near a bank or ATM handle transactions……they’ll move to a non-monetary system called barter and the black market, which most outside of Mumbai probably use now anyway.

      One of the reasons the USSR did not collapse sooner was the vast black market that existed bringing to the people at least some goods, like fresh FOOD not factored in the latest 5 year government plan.

    Rather than train staff to identify and help sexual abuse victims, former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Trevino said her employer taught them how to identify undercover journalists.

    Trevino, who managed a Planned Parenthood in Texas when Live Action released its undercover investigation, said she initially believed the abortion group could and would fix the problem. But when she attended a manager training meeting, her views quickly changed.

    “When were called into this meeting, I went in really believing that … they really do care about women and this is something that really concerns them,” Trevino told Live Action. “They begin to play all of the previous undercover investigations that had been put out about Planned Parenthood, and I became very perplexed.

    “As time went on, I raised my hand and said, ‘I’m confused. When are we going to actually begin the retraining? What can I do as a manager to take this information back to my staff and enforce policies and procedures that would help protect women?’ [The Planned Parenthood speaker] immediately shot me down. She said, ‘We’re not here to talk about that.’”

    Also present at the signing was White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, who played a key role in forging Mr. Obama’s policy of restoring diplomatic ties with Cuba in 2014.

    The agreement does not include a return of U.S. fugitives that Cuba has harbored, including [Joanne] Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur. Convicted of murder for the shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster in 1973, she escaped prison in 1979 and received asylum from Cuba. The omission of fugitives from the agreement was first reported by USA Today.

    Cuba’s shielding of Chesimard and other U.S. fugitives, including Puerto Rican nationalist William Morales, wanted for the 1975 Fraunces Tavern bombing in New York City that killed four and wounded 50, has been a source of friction between the two governments for decades.

    In a massive slap in the face to both the defense and intelligence communities, outgoing President Barack Obama commuted the sentence for Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning, sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking military details to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. Manning has served just seven years of his sentence; he is transgender and has changed his name to Chelsea Manning. Manning wasn’t Obama’s only controversial commutation: he also commuted the sentence of General James E. Cartwright, former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who lied to reporters about leaking information about the Stuxnet virus directed by Israel against the Iranian nuclear program; Obama commuted Oscar Lopez Rivera, an FALN terrorist who was convicted to a 55-year sentence for seditious conspiracy, forced robbery, and firearms charges.

    So, what drove Obama to make these decisions? And what is their impact?

    Here are a few thoughts.

    1. Obama Hates The National Security Community. Manning revealed documents to WikiLeaks that damaged American national security severely. According to the Associated Press, as The Weekly Standard notes, “The government presented [an] uncontested written statement that former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden asked for and received from an associate the Afghanistan battlefield reports that WikiLeaks published. The material was found on digital media seized in the May 2011 raid on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, [lead prosecutor Maj. Ashden] Fein said. Bin Laden was killed in the raid.” Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) rightly stated, “I don’t understand why the president would feel special compassion for someone who endangered the lives of our troops, diplomats, intelligence officers, and allies.” And Obama’s other commutations reveal a deep disdain for our allies and our defense community: FALN is a terrorist organization, and the leak of the Stuxnet virus information only helped Iran.

    2. Democrats Pretending They Care About WikiLeaks Have A Lot To Explain. Obama and other Democrats have suggested that Donald Trump was elected thanks to the Russians “hacking the election.” What they really mean is that Russia sponsored the WikiLeaks hacking of John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee. And they’ve been fighting mad about it – many top Democrats have used the WikiLeaks stories as a pretext to call the incoming administration illegitimate. But now Obama has commuted the sentence of the man whose information made WikiLeaks famous. So leaks are only bad when they hurt Democrats – when they hurt America’s national security, they’re no big deal, apparently.

    3. Republicans Who Like WikiLeaks But Angry About Manning Have A Lot To Explain. Sean Hannity has become quite friendly with WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange ever since WikiLeaks helped destroy Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But back when WikiLeaks was pumping out Manning’s material, Hannity wanted Assange prosecuted. Hannity’s not the only one in this situation. Republicans seem deeply upset about the Manning commutation, even while many of them pooh-pooh Assange’s involvement in the election process.

    Everybody’s a hypocrite when it comes to leaks these days. The only astonishing thing is how blatant Obama’s hypocrisy is – and how little he cares about exposing Democratic hypocrisy on WikiLeaks to the light of day on his way out.

      Let me address #3.

      There is a big difference between Wiki Leaks and those who take the information and give it to Wiki Leaks. One is a publisher of information, the other a thief or possible traitor.

      Now #2

      Wiki Leaks did NOT DO THE HACKING of Podesta or the DNC. False accusation.

  30. Just A Citizen says:

    So Trump’s appointees openly disagree with him during testimony. Since they are of the same view as the Congress critters doing the questioning, I don’t know how they could justify not approving them. The complaint is that because of this Trump’s actual policy is not known. I point out that this is usually the case and the whining is childish.

    No matter what a President Elect says his policy is, it always gets upset within months. Fade back to Bush II……….. we are not going to engage in nation building any longer.

    Back to now. I see a bigger question. The Colonel commented he thought it good that Trump had people around who disagree with him. This is true………. to a point.

    What happens when Trump declares he wants a policy in conflict with most of his appointments? Do you think these people with huge egos and political futures are just going to go along like good little soldiers?

    I see one of two things manifesting quickly. Either great conflict and angst in the Administration, with Trump revising his policy, or a large turnover in key appointments.

    • There is a third, I think……..” What happens when Trump declares he wants a policy in conflict with most of his appointments? Do you think these people with huge egos and political futures are just going to go along like good little soldiers? ”

      I am not ready to assume that the people appointed, while with huge egos, have political aspirations. They, for the most part, do not need a political job to become rich….they are there. It is quite possible…..possible, mind you……that Trump, et.al are genuine……..time will only tell. He has not done anything yet…and he has the whole elitist world up in arms and the progressive movement on the run…and he has exposed the left.

They swore they’d hold his feet to the fire and make him veto the bills…..I’d be very evasive and answer just like most of them do in such a way it;s deniable. Where was all the outrage when the Chinese were hacking into government systems. Where were they when Hillary signed off on the uranium deal with Russia, I’d do what I had to do and then claim, upon seeing more information, I’ve changed my stance.

    When Barack Obama commuted Manning’s sentence yesterday, he signaled once again that, even after eight long years as commander-in-chief, he simply does not understand the essence of military leadership or the core of military culture. By minimizing Manning’s crimes, he violated his own obligation to men and women in uniform. It was his job to enforce the lawful military norms that have been forged through centuries of bitter battlefield experience. Instead, he violated those norms, ensuring that Manning will serve no more time than men convicted of far more mundane crimes.

      • I am curious, tho……I am not so sure that Obama will carry much power after three weeks. I just do not think so and here is why…….the press is complete melt down because Trump reaches about 60 million people every time he tweets……20 mil on Twitter and it is conservatevely estimated that anothr 40 or so mil where tweets are forwarded or copied. The White House press has demanded that Trump send them the tweets first before going public…saying that refusal to do so violates the spirit of the press corps and denies the press the scrutiny of holding him responsible.

    • Get real.

      The US Military is nothing but destructive baby killing gangsters for the bankers and industrialists, paid for with the blood sweat and tears of your children and grandchildren, supported by an idiotic barbaric populace.

      “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
      ― Smedley D. Butler

  32. But…But, as I told Charlie the other day if you are agin Cory Booker, you are an out and out racist. Let’s all hear it for the NEXT president of the United States, Cory Booker, the Great Black Hope!

  33. Blah blah blah blah blah blah….

    Any and all conversations about politics are as pointless as they are futile unless you address the problem. That being that your whole system of organization, from local to globally, is based on coercion, murder, destruction and theft.

    Base it on peace and love of life instead, because it’s really easy to get along. All you have to do is mind your own business and otherwise try to look out for folks.

    If humanity cannot at least figure that out, there is nothing worthy of our species, suggesting we are crap and deserve extinction.

    If I were E.T.’s looking at humans from an objective perspective, I would kill us all before we become advanced enough to be a threat to the rest of the galaxy.

    “Monkey’s throwing poop”

    • This was settled back in 1951 with “The Day The Earth Stood Still”. Have a listen.

      • Great classic, ..puts things into perspective.

        • You mean the perspective of ” we do not care what you do on your own planet, we only become concerned if you wish to bring it to our planet ” But no matter how you look at it, they have a race of robots that are the police who have the power vested into them by the government of planets to enforce a law decided on by governments, that cannot even be revoked and these ET’s gave up their freedoms to be government by a violent police force.

          • I see it much simpler than that. Humans are a violent territorial aggressive crap ass species. It is only a matter of time before we are spilling our disaster over to our galactic neighbors. If I were them, I’d kill us like I would a roach infestation.

            Of course, I could be wrong. Maybe our galactic neighbors are far enough away that in order to reach them, we would have to be quite a bit more advanced, thus requiring a much better and peaceful social organization.

            Maybe that is god’s way of making us grow up before we can do any real damage?

            • But you are missing the point…..they still have a galactic police force to whom they gave up their freedom….In other words, according to his speech, the race of robots cannot be repealed…So I am having trouble reconciling your approach…..you seem to advocate violence. Even their society has problems or they would not need a galactic police force.

  34. Consider this;

    Beginning in early childhood, and generally speaking of course, we are taught all the basics of social skills and organization, a premise for social development and later success, …simple things like don’t lie cheat or steal, hit or bite. We are taught to share, be nice, etc…

    As we grow and become more independent beings, as we develop these skills and enter the world as adults, we are doing so in a system of organization that is completely antithetical to the entire premise of social success we are taught from early childhood.

    Don’t lie, cheat, steal, or hit. Share and be nice in a world where your success is dependent upon your ability to organize socially to assault destroy murder cheat and steal in an environment of vast amounts of bullshit.

    It functions as an inherent antithetical dynamic of perception, a built in form of hypnotic induction whereby people must rationalize their perception of reality. Add ‘Goebbels-ism’, stupid and selfish, then multiply that by a few billion. It equals Idiocracy Meets Nineteen Eighty Four.

    • I still say…..after reading everything you write…….you are still advocating a live and let live approach…..which still means survival of the fittest…..no rules. Your definitions of violence fit everyone up to and including the hippie sitting on the beach strumming his guitar. I was re-reading your “imaginary lines” concept, yet you still want boundaries. It seems to me that you want the same things we have now except you shift the responsibility to individuals.

      Unless I am misreading you, and I do not think that I am….you wish to abolish all forms of government and enforcement of everything and let individuals ban together and cooperate among each other and take care of each other…..without currency, without rules, except what the two of you agree upon. If that is the case, then the minute you go to your neighbor and the two of you agree upon bartering….he has a skill in farming and you have a skill in construction….you slap each other on the back and you build his house while he farms for you….you just not only created a government, you also created a trade deal. Extrapolate further…a third neighbor moves in and builds a dam and drills a water well. Then the three of you form a triad…and the three of you now have food, water, and shelter.

      What happens when the 4th neighbor moves in and has no social skill what so ever and demands that the three of you provide for him….following your premise, then the three of you should supply him with whatever he wants and desires. If you get together and say no, then you are a government ( you do not have to be elected to be a government ), you have enforced your brand of trade agreement ( policing ), and if this individual does not recognize boundaries per your edict, then he simply can walk over to the farmer and take his crop, without recompense, he can walk over and take the other’s water, without recompense, and he can come to your place and take whatever tools and construction equipment he wants, without recompense. He cannot be stealing because in your world, it is sharing.

      So, I do not see any difference in styles except an elected legislature. The result is the same. Now, I understand that this is a very simplified example, but please stay with this for the benefit of an old retired member, who knows nothing, of “the US Military that is nothing but destructive baby killing gangsters for the bankers and industrialists, paid for with the blood sweat and tears of your children and grandchildren, supported by an idiotic barbaric populace.”

      • “I still say…..after reading everything you write…….you are still advocating a live and let live approach…..which still means survival of the fittest…..no rules.”

        Not without rules, but rather without rulers. And live and let live can be simplified to minding your own business.

        “Your definitions of violence fit everyone up to and including the hippie sitting on the beach strumming his guitar.”

        Violence means to abuse or mistreat. I like to define it more specifically in relation to rights, being any time your inalienable rights are abused or encroached upon.

        “I was re-reading your “imaginary lines” concept, yet you still want boundaries.”

        There is a distinct difference between establishing private property and forcefully regulating or prohibiting free travel. You are rightful to establish whatever boundaries as per land ownership, but the minute you encroach upon the rights of others, you are being violent.

        Land management is easy. Simply don’t encroach on other people’s land or block the roads, and defend your property as necessary. Arbitrate disputes as necessary by whatever means is best suited for your community. But don’t violate or steal from people simply because they own land(land taxes).

        “It seems to me that you want the same things we have now except you shift the responsibility to individuals.”

        Yes and no. People should have the freedom to decide. You want to live in a totalitarian community? Sure, knock yourself out. But keep it to yourselves. I will live over here with all the Libertarians. We’re going to live peacefully and efficiently and show you how it’s done. Fuk with us and we will annihilate you without hesitation.

        “Unless I am misreading you, and I do not think that I am….you wish to abolish all forms of government and enforcement of everything and let individuals ban together and cooperate among each other and take care of each other..”

        Essentially, yes. More specifically, I posit that any social organization devoid of criminalizing or forcefully regulating victimless behavior is acceptable and qualifies as Libertarianism or anarchy.

        In other words, you can still have cops and infrastructure and county commissioners and all that you have now, just without being forced to cooperate or associate. The difference is things like the cops aren’t telling you what to smoke or demanding a number on your car, or killing innocent people for holding their hands in the air or walking, etc, but are instead patrolling your neighborhood defending against criminals, ..Your taxes are completely voluntary and things get built and done when there is enough pooled into a fund.

        “…..without currency, without rules, except what the two of you agree upon.”

        What? Where do you get that idea? You can do and/or have anything you do now, just without bossing people around with guns telling them how to think and live and who to be.

        “If that is the case, then the minute you go to your neighbor and the two of you agree upon bartering….he has a skill in farming and you have a skill in construction….you slap each other on the back and you build his house while he farms for you….you just not only created a government, you also created a trade deal. Extrapolate further…a third neighbor moves in and builds a dam and drills a water well. Then the three of you form a triad…and the three of you now have food, water, and shelter.”

        You confuse social organization, free association and trade with government.

        Government is distinctly different than social organization because government is premised on the use of coercion, murder and theft, destruction to impose it’s false reality mythical bullshit on paper.

        For the UMPTEENTH BILLIONTH TIME, it is all about the principle function of force. Everything government does, it does forcefully. It says “It shall be forced” in regard to all things. Death and destruction is it’s ultimate answer to all things. It is inherent, the very thing that defines government. Remove the element of force and it must operate as a service. It no longer qualifies as government.

        Government is the triad hiring people to go around stealing and murdering people for not doing what they say.

        “What happens when the 4th neighbor moves in and has no social skill what so ever and demands that the three of you provide for him….following your premise, then the three of you should supply him with whatever he wants and desires.”

        If there is extra and plenty and you feel charitable, let him hang out and pool together, teach him some skills and assist in empowering him. Make him useful and create a worthy ally and friend. If it doesn’t work out, then tell him to fuk off. If he doesn’t, make him. You have a right to disassociate and are not responsible to take care of him.

        ” If you get together and say no, then you are a government ( you do not have to be elected to be a government ), you have enforced your brand of trade agreement ( policing ), …”

        Not so. Government would be having a ceremony and saying magic words and writing on paper that his land is yours and he cannot wear socks and has to paint his home every week, or be punished with death.

        Dissociation is simply denying him service or engagement. It is saying “Get your food and water elsewhere and build your own home, Mr. Four” You are within your right to dissociate.

        “and if this individual does not recognize boundaries per your edict, then he simply can walk over to the farmer and take his crop, without recompense, he can walk over and take the other’s water, without recompense, and he can come to your place and take whatever tools and construction equipment he wants, without recompense.”

        ..or get shot.

        “He cannot be stealing because in your world, it is sharing.”

        No, stealing is stealing. Theft is any time property is taken against the owner’s consent. In your world, it’s called taxes.

        “So, I do not see any difference in styles except an elected legislature. The result is the same. Now, I understand that this is a very simplified example, but please stay with this for the benefit of an old retired member, who knows nothing, of “the US Military that is nothing but destructive baby killing gangsters for the bankers and industrialists, paid for with the blood sweat and tears of your children and grandchildren, supported by an idiotic barbaric populace.” ”

        It takes one to know one, right? I am also guilty of being a stupid destructive baby killer gangster, Colonel. Remember, I am an armed forces veteran. While I have not directly killed anyone, I did deliver a lot of bombs to be dropped on whoever. I thought I was doing good because I was a brainwashed idiotic statist serf.

  36. Dale A Albrecht says:

    Headline: “Trump and the end of the American Century” Trump’s election repudiates the political establishments long held belief of an essential expansive America.

    isn’t that what Obama has been doing for the past 8 years of pulling back. Proclaiming that America is NOT exceptional but just one and no better than the smallest nation.

    Biden’s last speech at Davos and the worlds elites…not my words….warns of the collapse of all the progressive accomplishments of the global progressive order.

    He kept harping on Europe and barely mentioned the US. That also goes in line with Obama, wanting to make the US more like Europe. I look at it as though, if America had not gotten involved in Europe they would be under either the National Socialists boot or the USSR’s.

    Biden decried about economic injustice in a world where the rich are getting richer and the middle class is being diminshed….isn’t it great talking to the predators who are in fact doing it. In 8 years of Obama’s leadership there has been NO prosecution of any banks, bankers and elites…..there have been deals made with these entities to avoid prosecution as long as they gave to organiztions that support their agenda…..why were there NO prosections of tax evasion of those people who hid with criminal advise from the swiss banks…..I believe many were large donors to the dems, or they just paid off. If they had been republicans or conservatives (the enemy) th eprosecutions woulf have been page one in bold

    Comment on one of Trump’s supposed proposals.

    I saw the other day that Trump is supposedly proposing some fixed % reduction in the budget and another % reduction in federal employees.

    This is the WRONG approach and I am a little surprised since it is not Good Business either. The general budget cut is fine, but specifying employment or any other detail at this point is just wrong.

    When faced with the need to cut costs you first have to prioritize your goals and objectives. What is your mission? What will it cost to carry it out? If you don’t have the money then reconfigure your strategy or tactics. If this doesn’t work then redefine your mission.

    This very last step has been missing for some time. Many agencies have been undergoing huge budget and personnel reductions ever since Clinton. These being land mgt. agencies primarily. These agencies are on the verge of not meeting their mission, that is the one Congress gave them.

    What needs to happen is agency heads or the new Secretaries need to go to Congress and tell them “We cannot afford the mission as you have defined it”. Either change the mission or increase our Budget and the Taxes needed to pay for it.

    Then We The People can have a real discussion about what we want and are willing to pay for.

    • Change the mission from little funding to absolutely no funding and complete dissolution of all departments of government forever.

      Create a new system whereby people VOLUNTARILY donate to a fund[s] managed under whatever terms necessary or desirable.

      Why is this plain wrong? Fixed reduction in general expense, like you said, is fine….but the first place that I would look right off the bat is the excess in employee force. Employees are, by far, the greatest expense a business can have. You know that Trump will not go in and say fire this one and that one….no business man would do that…..but I would go in and say to any department head….we need a reduction in expenses and your employee expense is one of the places to look….we need to identify redundant work. I would have no problem in addressing a department head saying, you need to reduce your work force 10%…can you do it and still accomplish the mission. This is how I think he will do it……

      • Just A Citizen says:

        d13thecolonel

        I explained why I thought it was bad. Some agencies have been reducing employees for over ten years. They were targeted by Clinton then left to founder under Bush and again targeted under Obama. They are down to a staff level that does not allow them to get the work done Congress has told them to do.

        I am betting there are many in this boat.

        I went through this before while in Govt. This is NOT a business like way to handle cutting the budget. I see that some leaks are getting out on more details. These are more targeted and that is what I am saying is the Correct way.

        Do not cut 10% across the board. Figure out what you need and cut COMPLETELY what you do not need.

        I love it. Preliminary estimates are 10 trillion in cuts over ten years. And this is without addressing entitlements. Oh Lordy, Lordy, the Fight is On. Get some popcorn.

Obamas problem is that he NEVER tried to get any input from that opposition other than calling them obstructionists and repeatedly the “ENEMY” that is not the way to “Win Friends and Influence People”

            Obama and HRC continually rail on Trump’s ties to Russia and Putin…..totally ignoring the huge technology transfers from the US to Russia after the historic “Reset” in setting up what is now a Russian “Silicon Valley” with a huge amount of the transfers facilitated by the Clinton Foundation and Podesta. Maybe the Russians were tired of paying millions of graft to the foundation instead of going directly to the companies themselves in this new world free economy.

    VA performance at their new Greenville facility……Had an appointment for 1430 today. I arrived 1/2 hour early and checked in. Decided to give blood samples at the lab as requested by the doctor. All completed by 1415. Walked back down to the waiting area, and was called at 1417. The nurse completed all the questions and did all the normal pre appointment measures. 1430 the Doctor walked in. They were all set up for the proceedure that I was there for. Out and heading for checkout and future appointment scheduling at 1500……like clockwork.

  45. Confession: Forgive me SUFA, for I have had a serious attack of patriotism today. It’s been 8 + years since my last attack (more like since 9/11)(shout out to SK, he knows a similar line)

    It started as I saw Trump exit AirForce 2 and the welcome brass met him with a salute, and Trump saluted back. Sweet! But there was a genuine smile exchanged there also, which I didn’t expect, but I won’t forget that. The military has his back and he has theirs. Then he was speaking at an RNC celebration. He seemed humble and at ease. thanking his staff and supporters. Then the concert, which was awesome. When he marched his family up to where Lincoln sits…first, I never grasped the bigly yugeness of that statue…but I can only imagine what was running through his mind. It had to have been overwhelming, even for him. I have had to choke back or wipe tears several times today. And its just weird. I’m stealing a line I saw in a comment section earlier:

And I do say NICE, because I’m not against it.

            • Granted, as mentioned above, human nature is problematic. Look at how bad we have fuct up our planet and ‘civilization’.

              But who says government systematic violence and enslavement is the answer to that? Is there another way to work around the human nature problem? Because extermination isn’t exactly ideal either.

      Taking a trip to the Mall is well worth the time. Plan on several days. Stay in Alexandria and take the metro in. Then get a pass on the trolley that goes and stops at all key spots. You can get on and off at your leisure. The stops are all arranged that you then can see several things, then get back on. The Mall is bigger and distances are further than you think. Regardless of politics it is awe inspiring.

      I thought it very interesting even when DC was being layed out Congress passed a law the forbade any government building and land purchases from being constructed or bought on the Alexandria side of the Potomac because of the huge land holding of George Washington and the Custis’s

    • Ya got it right kid. Was down in AC for a quick trip and got to watch it (the concert) on one of those 52 inch screens with the wife. Told the wife that even if the whole Lincoln statue thing was planned, choreographed, had it been President Elect Trynosky there, I would have instinctively done the same thing. Earlier, when he was in the box and the kiddies were running around, told Denise that had he put one of those girls on his lap would have been a nice family touch. So……the guy, in front of the Lincoln Statue has the Granddaughter right in front of him and puts his hands on her shoulders. What a touch.

  47. This blog is losing what made it special when US Weapon created it 8 years ago.

    It is less a debate of the relative merits of the issues of the day – a place where liberals and conservatives could come to rationally debate. It has become a place openly hostile to liberals. It is a relentless attack on our ideology – not a debate – an attack.

    If you continue to alienate us – Todd, Charlie, Buck, myself – there will be no liberals left. You will have nothing but another echo chamber.

    I miss the old SUFA.

    In the words of our new President: “Sad.”

      Guilty as charged! I wish I had the time to write long articles that could be debated, but recent history has shown that the subject is mostly ignored and the subject matter goes in another direction.

      Here’s what will be kind of fun, now I get to bring up new policies to attack and discuss. I will be equally hard on the Republicrats. I still do not see much difference in what is going to happen in Congress. More of the same, with some exceptions maybe.

      As far as debates, bring on a subject and let’s chat about it. You and Buck (and others) have been treated with due respect and will continue to to be treated so. While I do attack the Progressive Left, I don’t direct my attacks at any individuals, it’s more of a wholesale thing and there will always be exceptions. I consider you and Buck as good people, and our debates have been fun and informative.

      While we can debate kindly, I still think the Liberal media will continue their name calling nonsense. Frankly, it’s them that my disdain is aimed at, as I’m fed up with all the negative labels.

      • I thought you and I had great debates. Yes, I do not agree with your ideology and I, openly, am not a one worlder nor am I a greater good…but I do not think I attacked you….I thought you and I had a fun time. I miss you and Buck being on here….come on back. AND…..I challenge you, and I will have your six, if you are feeling attacked. Now, if you are worried about attacking your ideology, derogatory remarks would not be in order, but if I think you are off base or not in my hemisphere, I will ask you why….but if you have a belief, I do not think anyone has attacked it….I don’t think? But sometimes the guilty party does not know they did….so if I have….give me a shout out.

        • G man……I suggest a start on a new thread to discuss something that is still all over the news ( depending on which one you watch ) on the issue of the popular vote vs the electoral college….I think this is highly important because I have actually swtiched horses in the last month. Buck and I had a short converstion on it.,,,and I agreed with him that perhaps the electoral college was out dated and something new needed to be done…but I no longer think that way….I am electoral college all the way now especially since I have seen the breakdown of the geographical areas of the vote. So..I think an indepth discussion on this would be good……just a suggestion.

          • Better yet…..keep this one going for awhile and I will write an article….have it by monday….just have remember how to get it on here on the dashboard.

      • It’s not about “writing long articles.” And I agree that the conversation has a will of its own.

        But there’s a tone and an attitude.

        We liberals are not the enemy.

        Last time we spoke, I asked for some civility and you responded by suggesting I should be made to eat some crow instead.

        Your last three articles were the left are communists, the liberal media sucks, and Democrats are babies.

        How about “POETUS nominates… ” or “Here’s why Trump’s business interests do/don’t represent a conflict of interest” or “Let’s use some hindsight and take a wholistic view of the Obama Presidency” or “What does it mean for Trump’s “legitimacy” given that he won, but lost the popular vote by 3mm+ votes”?

        Any of those? No? How about Predictions for the Trump Presidency? What he might do? His strengths? Weaknesses?

        “What in the hell is going to happen with ObamaCare?”

        No?

        Obama’s gone (in 6 minutes). The Red Shirts control pretty much every level of government. Do we consider this a problem that one party has so much unchecked power?

        No?

        Well then let’s just continue beating up on the liberals.

        Trump won’t take a question from CNN and suggests that he’s going to pick-and-choose who gets to sit in the press room? How is that not a chilling prospect?

        No?

        Clinton was mistaken for Big Foot while hiding in the woods of Chapaqua.

        Are we seriously going to ignore that?

        Trump (or his advisors) ask the military to roll tanks and STA missile launchers down Pennsylvania Ave (N. Korea style). Does that not raise an eyebrow?

        No?

        Let’s talk about the intelligence community’s judgement that Putin interfered in the election to get Trump elected. Do we care about that?

        No?

        Let’s talk about how the Ethics chairman got attacked after suggesting that Trump wasn’t doing enough about his conflicts of interest.

        No?

        What, if anything, is going to happen to gay rights? What’s going to happen to health care? What’s going to happen to minimum wage? What’s going to happen to.. hell, a lot of things. Pick one.

        You say you’re going to hold Trump and the Conservatives accountable. How about doing that. And stop attacking us liberals. We’re not the enemy. We the majority who are being dominated by the minority.

        The whole tone in this country treats us like we’re the enemy. It feels very McCarty-esque. I don’t need it here, too. I won’t participate on those terms.

        • Ummm…who was this aimed at? ( Yes, I ended a sentence with a proposition ).

          • I thought you and I had a very productive debate series a while back and I have never felt that you were “hostile” to the left, but rather just view it as a difference of opinion. I never got the impression from you that you view us as whiny or fundamentally dishonest or such. Rather, and perhaps I’m projecting, it seems that you few the left as your fellow countrymen who just so happen to be very mistaken about the roll of the government and economics and some social issues.

            On the inverse, the “vibe” I’ve been getting from a lot of what I’ve read here – and I’m not going to point fingers – has been openly hostile. Treating the “left” as the enemy. Treating liberals as evil or immoral or stupid or whiny or disloyal to America.

            And it seems that SUFA has decided to obsess over accusing the left and is ignoring the new administration. I didn’t come to SUFA to be part of a community that mocks “my side.” I came to debate ideas and the events of the day. And I feel like I’ve lost that (outside of our wonderful debate series).

            • gmanfortruth says:

              The new Administration is now in the Big House, so to speak. But in all honesty, you have always been free to bring up any subjects for discussion. This has been an “open mic” forum for some time now.

              As far as eating crow, it was what it was, you called the election over long before any votes were cast. But, that is now in the past, so there is currently no crow for you to eat 🙂 You are free to have a big steak 😀

      Mathius

      I have never been hostile towards any real Liberal. 😉

      What is missing is the articles. The debates within have not changed much except when you guys go quiet. USW had to back off because of the burden of doing the articles. I told him I would help and like others, have been overwhelmed by other duties.

      I think one improvement would be for you to call folks out when you think it has degenerated into stupid name calling. But don’t run off and hide. Stay engaged on the higher road.

      So what did you think of Trump’s speech today?

  48. Something to debate-What’s up with the republicans trying to pass a budget that would add almost 10 trillion to the debt? I know why the dems didn’t vote for the bill but I don’t understand the republicans trying to pass it in the first place.

    • Hi V.

      The reason is that the Republicans are not the party of Fiscal Conservatism.

      They are as spend-thrift as the Democrats (and then some, because they won’t accompany their spending with taxes, so it’s pure deficit).

      They are only fiscally conservative when it makes a good excuse to stop the Blue Shirts from getting their way.

      The only difference in terms of spending will be where they direct their spending and who will benefit.

      Remember, it was Cheney who said “Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter.” And, of course, Reagan could only do that by running deficits in the first place.

      The selective amnesia of the ruling class of the Red Shirts is awfully convenient, but they’re back in the saddle now, and gee golly, are they every going to spend spend spend.

      And Trump, who has suggested more than once that we can/should just print our way out of debt, may not have any inclination to reign them in. After all, spending is stimulative, and there’s nothing in the world any of them would like more now than a boost in the economy.

  50. Canine Weapon says:

    (then again, just to be safe, maybe they should put some glass between him and Trump today…)

  51. Here’s a conversation topic.

    I don’t think they should be praying publicly, quoting Solomon or Mathew (as they are doing right now), at the inauguration. We are a secular country, and it is not appropriate. Tradition be damned.

    Unless, of course, Black Flag is correct and we are actually a Christian Theocracy.

    But as a Jew, I wince when I hear “we come to you our heavenly father in the name of Jesus” as part of a swearing in ceremony for my new leader. “Glory to the father, the son, and the holy spirit – we pray this in the name of Jesus, amen.”

    That’s just not appropriate. And, for what it’s worth, my Jewish tax dollars are going toward that. Certainly that should violate the First Amendment, no?

    (Disclaimer: I felt the same way about Obama and Bush II and would have felt the same way for others if I had been old enough at the time).

    • Congress didn’t make a law and Jesus was a Jew. Your tax dollar issue is your own fault, statist.

      • Congress did made funds available for the use of this time to talk about Jesus.

        It’s happening on Federal land.

        It’s be no different if they, say, erected a 10-commandments monument on the Washington Mall.

        And, yes, Jesus was a Jew. But I’m a really bad Jew. And, in any event, my religious beliefs are private. I think religion should be BANISHED form the political sphere – that whole “separation of Church and State” thing.

        • What does the first say?

          Did you vote?

          Are you anti-Semitic? Anti-Christian? Have a problem with free expression?

          • What does the first say?

            The First says, amongst other things, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof […].” This has pretty solidly been interpreted to mean that the government favor one religion over another. Spending money to support public prayer absolutely fits the bill. It’s why it was kicked out of public schools. We just haven’t gotten around to kicking it out of the other government spheres.

            Did you vote? Of course. First Bernie. Then Hillary.

            Although, technically, my 4-year old cast the Hillary Clinton ballot.

            However, I live in NY, so my vote is irrelevant thanks to the EC. If I want my vote to count, I need to move to a swing state.

            Are you anti-Semitic? Anti-Christian? Have a problem with free expression?

            I have no issue with any religion except when they seek to impose their doctrine on me. This is especially true when they do so via government fiat.

            I have no issue with free expression, either.

            But I DO have an issue with the government taxing me and then using those funds to facilitate the promotion of a religion (or, generally, Judeo-Christianity in general). That’s not the role of a secular government. It is a violation of the First Amendment (disclaimer: I am not actually a federal judge). It does not respect those of us who do not believe in the religious doctrine (Jews, atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, etc). And, generally, it is simply inappropriate.

            They are taking a major political government event and using it, effectively, to say, “hey, we’re a Judeo-Christian country” and that simply is not the truth – or at least, it shouldn’t be..

            By the way, “in God we Trust” on our money, and “one nation under God” are similarly inappropriate.

            • Why is this a hot button with you? I am not Christian, I am not Jew….I am not anything…..Religion, or any semblance thereof…is private. But it does not bother me with the “In God we Trust” thing…..as a matter of fact I simply do not care….do you think that I should? Am I missing something here?

              • You should care for two reasons.

                1. It’s against the Constitution, and if you care about such things, it shouldn’t be selective.
                2. It perpetuates “Christian rule” of this country. That is not a good thing. We’ve never elected a non-Christian. No (open) atheist has even made it into congress. There are blue laws. Sexual repression laws. The federal gov’t meddles in sex education in counter-productive ways. The Judeo-Christianity lends blind support to Israel. And so on.

                It’s toxic. There’s a very, very good reason the Founders insisted so strongly on Separation of Church and State and chipping away at that or failing to militantly uphold that that divide is bad for everyone.

              • Fair enough…..but is not the constitutional phraseology of the separation of church and state a pretty subjective topic? That is to mean, everybody or most everybody, has a differing version. Separation of church and state, to me, means no theocracy. Nothing more. I do not see “In God we Trust” falling under the theocracy issue. I do not see the ten commandments being posted in the Supreme Court to be a theocracy issue….

                Theocracy….. 1. a form of government in which God or a deity is recognized as the supreme civil ruler, the God’s or deity’s laws being interpreted by the ecclesiastical authorities.
                2. a system of government by priests claiming a divine commission.
                3. a commonwealth or state under such a form or system of government.

                Is that not what the framers had in mind? To make sure we were not European? England?

            • “The First says, amongst other things, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof […].” This has pretty solidly been interpreted to mean that the government favor one religion over another.”

              Congress did not make a law saying your presiturd had to be any particular faith. Nor does it prohibit him from swearing on a bible.

              “Of course.”

              You demand it.

              “I have no issue with any religion except when they seek to impose their doctrine on me.”

              Did your new presiturd use legal authority to make you praise Jesus?

              “I have no issue with free expression, either.”

              Okay.

              ” But I DO have an issue with the government taxing me and then using those funds to.. … … … ..inappropriate.”

              Then why do you demand it?

              What I am getting here is that you are a Jew who voted to demand a government that you feel is supposed to protect your rights by not making laws to favor religions or prohibit free expression, but is imposing Judaeo-Chrstian religion upon you by members freely expressing their faith that you have no problem with.

            • Dale A Albrecht says:

              To your first point…..bernie was the better candidate on the Democratic Party side. He was actively derailed by the collusion of the DNC and HRC.

              To your second point. Other than NYC most of the rest of NY State did not support HRC. Other Than LA and SF in California, the rest of the State did not support HRC. The EC was designed that a few huge population centers with one set of problems that are atypical to the rest of the nation do not neccesarily rule the roost. A candidate has to appeal to more than what HRC did.

              I do not remember in the beginning of this campaign cycle anybody here on SUFA supporting either Trump or Hillary. They just happened to be the last two standing. Hillary was a known entity after 3 decades in the government fray. Trump is a diamond in the rough and I mean rough in the strictest sense. However when cutting and shaping a diamond, the slightest mistake can turn it into a worthless pile of sand or may become a brillient gem.

        • Dale A Albrecht says:

          Like I said…..I’m not holding my breath…..the course of our nation over the past many decades has varied little regardless of who has been in power. “change” is an illusion and a propaganda tool. I’m only saying past decades because it is a timespan that all of us here are intimately involved in, in some form or manner.

          None of the NSA or intelligence agencies action of violating the constitution will be withdrawn. Seizure of assets by the government without warrant or charges will not be withdrawn. The ACA will be struck down, but the operative words have been it will be “REPLACED” I’m sure it will be just as FUBAR as the 1st pass. A new “Cold War” will come to pass because it is with a succinct opponent and not some nebulous ISIS. But the actual biggest risk to the world at large is in fact that army tearing around in the M/E. The only way to combat them is not by B-2 stikes or drone strikes but combat teams hunting them down. Assad was far less risk than what we were supporting as a replacement. Same in Libya. We dodged a bullet in Eygpt because the Army stood strong there. We will se a massive shift of the former Eastern Bloc back towards Russia, as long as Russia does not enforce it with tanks and KGB. They will consider the EU as a lost cause and will NOT IN any way stand to protect those countries over riding interests. The EU only considers what is good for Germany or France. And if Holland is ousted and replaced with more right wing groups like Le Pen France will be gone also like with De Gaulle…what do ones do you wish to bet on? England done with the EU, they just have to disentangle the rules and regulations. Italy is next, then Spain, Holland will finally stand up against their rulers who fold everytime unelected officials in Brussels threaten. Congress will fold here on the climate change policies of Obama and they will continue.

      My Father was a very peaceful person and I rarely ever saw him get upset or truly angry. However, in the 50’s while working on the SAGE project he and one of his lead engineers a “Black” man were denied rooms at a hotel in DC our nations capital. He came back to NY so angry he was spitting nails.

      Blacks were probably protesting by being visibly absent….however it is a mistake on their part. The hispanics and other immigrant classes will continue to push them aside and pursue their dreams of advancement in our nation instead of complaining…..Just make make sure the immigrant is documented and ever onwward.

      The City of Raleigh over a decade ago ever concience of racial discrimination in hiring, was widening the road I lived on and pushing the sidewalks out and re-landscaping. What was observed was the crews were black originally and spent a vast potion of their time standing around holding up their shovels…..very shortly the crews were replaced with Hispanics and the project was completed in a few weeks, all aspects after going nowhere and being stalled…..The same here in New Bern, sidewalk projects start with one crew and then within months to move it along they switch to Hispanics. The entire new city welcome center built next door was entirely built by a crew of hispanics. Totally built by hand and no prefab. If rain days caused delays they worked on weekends and nights and holidays to stay on the overall schedule. If you are willing to work you get and keep the job…if not you get by-passed.

    And I have a bridge to see you.

  57. Trump: “Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.”

    Trade wars are great!

    (Mathius is short Amazon)

    • Serious question…….what do you consider a trade war? I do not consider equal trade a trade war ( That is to mean dollar for dollar ). Here is where the actual slippery slope gets started, is it not? Slapping tariffs on imports simply to be protectionist is not what I would do. However, equating tariffs is not protectionist. A tit for tat… Mathius land puts an import tariff on Colonel land goods….Colonel Land responds with an equal tariff on imports from Mathius land…Would you consider that a war?

      • Free trade is (generally) the best thing.

        Unfortunately, I’m running low on time, so I’ll try to make this brief.

        Any time government intervenes in free trade, it is a loss. Period, full stop.

        Now, that money might go on to be used for good purposes elsewhere, but that’s irellevant.

        What matters is that it disturbs the efficient allocation of resources.

        And if we impose tariffs, and they impose tariffs and we say “dollar for dollar” all you’re doing is creating a bureaucratic nightmare to navigate and increasing the cost of doing business which, at the end of the day, means goods cost more, are scarcer, and/or are lower quality.

        If I want to buy a pair of shoes from Italy, it’s not the government’s job to get in my way.
        If I want to sell a hat to an Italian family, it’s not the government’s job to get in my way.
        Period. Full stop.

        The goal shouldn’t be to make it harder and more expensive to do business with other countries – the goal should be to make it easier and cheaper and more efficient to do business with Americans.

        And if they’re going to cheap (no environmental controls, currency manipulation, etc), then it’s fine to demand that they compete on equal footing. And if they have a tariff on us, it’s fine to demand they remove it. But to say “they do it, so we will, too,” well, that way madness lies.

        We’ll impose a tariff and they’ll raise their tariff and businesses and supply lines will be disrupted. That country’s economy will be hurt, our economy will be hurt. Countries who loaned those countries money will be hurt. Fewer goods and services will flow. Remember, we are still a country that relies heavily on exporting.. so we bring back 10 jobs, but lose 100. Does that make sense? And, in the process, we destabilize the economies of China and India – there’s no way that can be a bad thing, right?

    4. How does an arc control for the climate needs of the various species? Surely a desert-dwelling lizard requires different accommodations than polar bears?

    • Now, this is the Mathius that I remember,,,,,jovial.

      1. If it was just one family, does that mean we’re all inbred? (yup. See, also, Adam & Eve)

      To believe in Adam and Eve, does that not require a belief in the Bible or a facsimile thereof?

      2. What did they feed the carnivores? (answer: Where do you think the unicorns and dinosaurs went?) Great Question…..but then you would not have a Big Bang Theory either then or on TV.

      3. If he had two of every animal, does that include sea-life? How did god “drown” all the other fish?

      Well, if you believe in God….doesn’t it stand to reason he/she/it could do it?

      4. How does an arc control for the climate needs of the various species? Surely a desert-dwelling lizard requires different accommodations than polar bears?

      Hmmmmm…I did hear a theory once that all the animals of today were not present then….and why did Noah save the friggin flies and chiggers and ticks and things.

      • He could have left the mosquitoes behind, too.

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        The chiggers, ticks and fleas and flies clung onto their hosts and was an unintended consequence. There obviously was NO health inspection of delousing upon entering the ark.

        • Where did he find TWO of whatever creature lives on Donald Trump’s head?

        • Dale A Albrecht says:

          The fish and whale point is valid……here’s another point to ponder…..what about the plants and vegetation., much less all the animals that were in no way resident in that biblical area. Good story but goes no further……I much more prefer the Tower of Babel” story, It much more related to the hubris and ego of the human species.

          • Dale A Albrecht says:

            Bottom line is “god and creation” did not stop at the “Garden of Eden”, nor with just the earth, shock of shock to the earth centric believers. There are thousands of “petrie” dishes out there in the universe and heaven forbid they accidentally cross-pollinate.

            The story of Noah’s flood is nothing but a great example of what a scientist does to an experiment that has failed in their expectations. They take out what the consider “good” and flush the rest. And then back to the drawing boards.

  59. Welp, it seems like Obama missed his opportunity to impose Sharia law, confiscate everyone’s guns, or imprison conservatives in FEMA camps.

    • Chumming, are we? I am not biting on this one…never believed any of that.

    • gmanfortruth says:

      LMAO. I was out for awhile and missed the whole show, catch it later I guess. A couple points to make on some of your comments.

      The popular vote——-If we would have had a popular vote, the margin of victory in California and New York (4.5 million for HRC) would have won the election for HRC. Instead, 30 different States made a difference as well as the 98% of the Counties in the US going to Trump.

      The religion thing———Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. There are no LAWS made to respect an establishment. It would also be illegal to deny such a ceremony where religious belief is used, because it says so.

      Looking forward to D13’s article on the Electoral College, should be a fun debate!!!!!

    • Just A Citizen says:

      You forgot the “marshal law” meme.

  60. gmanfortruth says:

    Just watched Trump’s speech.

    It was nice to hear a speech where the President wasn’t constantly talking about himself, but rather talking about the people.

    He slammed Congress, Obama and the establishment. Doing so without throwing out a few F bombs was impressive.

    Trump is not a great orator. America First sounds like a good idea, wish the rest of the people in DC would have thought of that.

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      Neither was Obama the ‘tele-prompter-in-chief” If the machine broke he was “speechless”

    • Does anyone else find these kinds of speeches unbearably awkward? I mean, he basicly was saying, “Things are going to be so much better now that the idiotic tyrant sitting behind me whose hand I was just shaking is gone!” I could hardly stand the awkwardness while listening in the safety of my own home. If I had been on that stage, I would have had to crawl under my chair to avoid it.

      • I liked it. The guy has no fear. Took it to ’em right in their own yard. But I bet there were a few FUs going through some heads behind him. 🙂

      • gmanfortruth says:

        It was as non-partisan as I have heard come out of DC in a long time. He said some things that the politicians needed to hear and the people needed to hear as well. Everyone deserved what was said.

  61. gmanfortruth says:

    Protests turning violent, on the main cable news networks or here:

    • gmanfortruth says:

      Not sure calling the J20 people Anti-Fascist is very accurate.

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        J20 or J-20 may refer to:

        *Chengdu J-20, a Chinese fifth-generation fighter aircraft
        *J20 SuperElit, a Swedish junior ice hockey league
        *County Route J20 (California), a county road designation in California
        *Jeep J-20, pickup trucks
        *Nissan J20, a 2.0-litre (120 cu in) engine developed in the 1960s
        *Soko J-20 Kraguj, a Yugoslavian light attack aircraft
        *January 20, 2005 counter-inaugural protest, a large number of demonstrations held in Washington, D.C. and other USA cities to protest the second inauguration of President George W. Bush
        8The ICD-10 code for acute bronchitis
        *Toyota J20 series, a predecessor chassis of the FJ40 Land Cruiser

        Obviously there is a lack of imagination by some group,

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      In this video….weren’t most of the people shown “protesting” the media. It appeared to me that each protester had his or her own set of media groupies. Like 10-1

  62. Sounds like Matt got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

    This blog is losing what made it special when US Weapon created it 8 years ago.
    ….and thanks to Gman he has singlehandedly managed to keep it afloat. I never heard him claim to be anything close to USW . Thanks Gman! I miss the old SUFA too, but I’m glad its still around.

    But there’s a tone and an attitude.
    ….I agree, and hope I’m only a minor nuisance, but this is not the original SUFA

    Trump won’t take a question from CNN and suggests that he’s going to pick-and-choose who gets to sit in the press room? How is that not a chilling prospect?
    …it really isn’t chilling. Considering CNN had just finished slandering him with fake news. You can get into the details of it…CNN just reported that a rag site reported…that a source got from a source…that he has weird sexual flings in Russia. Seriously? He should have kicked they guy to the curb for being obtuse!

    Let’s talk about the intelligence community’s judgement that Putin interfered in the election to get Trump elected. Do we care about that?
    …Lets. Putin hacked the election to benefit Trump…but Hillary won the popular vote. Does that even make sense? Besides, they hack, we hack, everybody hacks. That’s why nobody trusts anybody.

    What, if anything, is going to happen to gay rights? What’s going to happen to health care? What’s going to happen to minimum wage?
    …Gay rights, they got them. The end. Healthcare, we’ll see. Its on its way to repeal. Minimum wage, His labor nominee is not a fan, saying it will hurt business. Trump says it needs to go up, but thinks it should be a state issue.

    Then comes two hostile memes. Who’s hostile now?

    We are a secular country, and it is not appropriate. Tradition be damned.
    …Thanks for rewriting history and burying our spiritual heritage. With all the reference to God around DC, I think its safe to assume the people of the time approve.

    I have no issue with any religion except when they seek to impose their doctrine on me.
    …you mean like when the force religious institutions to supply birth control against their doctrine?

    Other than the Obamas, Clarence Thomas, and a marine, I haven’t seen a single African American…
    ….I see Americans, many of whom voted for Obama. Who’s the racist here?

    According to the new president:

    According to Anita and the Eagles:

    You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Nice to see you ’round again Matt.

    • gmanfortruth says:

      Thanks Anita and well said throughout. 🙂

    • Sounds like Matt got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

      I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old. I haven’t slept past 5:30 AM in months.

      We are all recovering from, what I can only assume is the wrath of God himself Ebola. I’ll spare you the specifics, suffice it to say it was horrific. It took out both my kids, my wife, myself, our nanny, AND one of the dogs. That’s right, even the dog got sick and threw up on the bed, stairs, couch, and rug. AND.

      Let me just tell you how much I love cleaning up dog vomit and baby vomit while running back and forth to the bathroom myself. I wish I’d weighed myself before and after – I bet I’m down 10lbs.

      I haven’t eaten anything beside toast since Wednesday.

      To top all this off, Trump was just sworn in.

      So, yes, yes, it is… possible… that I got up on the wrong side of the bed.

      ———–

      Regarding the rest of your post, I read it, I appreciate the feedback, and I promise I’d love to respond, but my three days of Bubonic Plague Swine Flu have left me waaaaaay behind on work. (I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to SUFA on Inauguration day, though).

      ————

      You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

      Ah, but remember, I DID check out of California. I’m an LA expat. 🙂

      ————

      Then comes two hostile memes. Who’s hostile now?

      We are a secular country, and it is not appropriate. Tradition be damned.

      “memes”?

      Anyway, there was no intended hostility. But it is still my firm opinion that it’s inappropriate in a secular country for the government to be making official de-facto endorsements of God in any way shape or form, whether that is money, pledges, or inauguration speakers.

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        Mathius…..With having lived a lot of years in both NY and California…..If I had no other place to go, i’d pick NY above Westchester Co, Maybe extend up towards Albany but if above that stay to the east of the Hudson. Lot of nice territory up there. However the taxes are just killers. Right now a nice old 300+ year old city suits me just fine.

      • I have no pity. I did four with no nanny. I wisely never did the dog thing.

  63. gmanfortruth says:

    I wonder what letter(s) will be missing from the keyboards in the White House this time? 🙂

  64. Mathius…………………” Ah, but remember, I DID check out of California. I’m an LA expat ”

    OMG…….no, can’t say that…..Oh…Lordy……nope, that one either……….HOLY SHIT…..nope….

    ahhhhhh…..SONUVABITCH…..there………now

    Sonuvabitch……from LA to New York……….no wonder you think the way you do…..you did not have a chance at normalcy. I would imagine that would fall into the…..handicap….territory. Now it makes sense why you would want Obamacare….

    ( No SUFA….that was not derogatory….Mathius and I go way back. Hell, the man even keeps a Pirate locked up in his basement )

    • By the way….and perhaps it is because you are an LA expat moved to New York….four year olds and one year olds are your fault ( I can tell you what caused that in case you are wondering )………………….and, as I warned Buck……they grow p to be teenagers…then they drive.

  65. I am Happy. Well done. The guy teared up as his old High School Academy went by. The speech, great. I saw the shock on Bush 2’s face. Obama did great acting like it didn’t affect him and I can imagine both McConnell and Ryan needing a bathroom soon.

    Took till about 6:50 for Fox’s Brett Baer to finally say what I expected to hear much earlier. “There’s a new sheriff in town.”

    Not a single peep about Russians, Russia, KGB, Putin. Heavy on innuendo directed at the Peoples Republic.

    Matt, you are wrong. I cannot for the life of me see what you people miss regarding unfair trade and/or US Companies making their money here but spending it elsewhere. In the end we collapse. It should be a zero sum game it is not and has not been. As the man said The DC folks do very well. As he did not quite say , in my vernacular, everyone else is screwed.

    Just a reminder for those “frightened” , from my very first inaugural as an awestruck 13 year old.

    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. John F. Kennedy

    That’s scary. Just ask the 57,939 folks whose names are on the black wall in Washington.

    • Nice! How bout the vid of Bill checking out the Trump ladies and Hill busted him. I laughed so hard. Good times, the whole election season was fun.

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        Anita….did you see on your internet homepages a photo of one of the inaugural concerts during Obamas last outing. It was a shot of Boyance. Obama was standing behind her clapping and enjoying the show. ChucK Schumer was standing in view with his glasses down on the end of his nose looking over them with this leering grin on his face. I’m sure the drool was photo-shopped out. Did Biden do any grab assing which he was notorious for. I’m sure the secret service would have shot him if he went near Ivanka or Melanie. A good face plant and hand cuffs would have been OK also

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      I could not bring myself to visit the “Wall” until 2010. Probably one of the most vivid experiences ever. Brought home by touching the names of those you knew and went to school with.

      • I have not done it yet…..I did go to the travelling wall….but could not handle it well and left quickly. I did make some imprints of friends and the men I lost. But I cannot bring myself to go to Washington for any reason. When I was at the Pentagon for a brief period of time, I purposely did not go to Arlington or the Wall….not ready for it.

        • Dale A Albrecht says:

          I had gone to the guys funerals when they were returned to LA in 70/71 and that was very hard. The memories that we were just playing the big game the year before. my parents wanted one last trip to DC before my Father passed away. He was unable to make the walk to the WWII memorial so he stayed at the Korean War Memorial and talked to other veterans who were unable to get around. Dad was to old for Korea but his brother did the full duration. Since WWII the memorials really are vivid. They are NOT glorious. They really make you stand and think about what the service men and women went through and what they did to the nation and the sacrifices that they went through. I go to the actual battlefields of the Civil War and hire a personal resident historian to walk me through the battle and actually stand on the places where the generals stood and made decisions and stand in the fields or bloody lanes. The battles around Fredrickburg are on my list but walking is a must. Same with Richmond and Petersburg because you have to also had up all along to Appomatox. Then on a trip west see Chattanoga, Shiloh and Vicksburg. Done Gettysburg, all the Valley Campaign, the West VA battles such as they were. Usually the battles are so extensive they ask of any particular regiments you want to follow….also I try and get to the battlefield here in the south from our war of independence. God the southern army dragged Cornwallis over heck and begone before he got pinned into Yorktown..

  66. He goes right to work.

    Mattis and Kelly get confirmed and Trump signs their commissions.

    Signs executive order to “ease the burden of Obamacare” No details given.

    Priebus (why him?) issues memorandum instituting a freeze on new regulations.

    Promises turning into action. Yes I’m counting.

  67. Dale A Albrecht says:

    I just was brought up to date today on the passing of family members during 2016. My Mother’s sister died at 90 just after Christmas. The family had three sisters pass that were offspring of the original immigrants to this country from Austria. One was 95 and the other two were over 100. All in all the average age of my Grandmothers family was 95 with now three reaching over 100….only three that I know off did not reach 90. One was one of my Great Grandfather’s and he still beat the actuarials of the time by 10 years. One of his sons died of a serious medical failure at around 45-50. The oldest son who drank a tumbler of Jack Daniels black label at breakfast each day beat the current ages by 7 years…..we will never see those ages under our current health systems and eating habits.

  68. Dale A Albrecht says:

    I just watched much of Trump’s speech. Then I went to and read the leading headlines on my home page. Clearly guys like Chris Matthews and I watched and heard different words that were in plain english and spoken slowly so nobody misunderstood.

    I can not imagine the height of heels that Melanai wore and the flats Trump wore so their heights were equal. Her gowns were stunning and unique……and YES Trump’s tie was to long commiting a male social faux pas,

    I couldn’t believe the womens groups out protesting. Bet he does more than any previous recent president on women in business….and also erasing the Womens Lib movement stigma that has placed on those that want to stay at home and raise their families.

    The anti-america first diatrabs on the web were crazy. Yes there is an old biblical line that we are our brothers keeper…..but there also is one that CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. What one has left over after taking care of your immediate circle can be given away. But if so much is given away that there is none left at home….we’re screwed….that will possible also stop or at least be slowed down. Europe will be forced to pay their agreed upon share of their collective security. Europe in general has rode on our largess for their security to long and needs updating or they will be left holding their johnsons in which ever hand they choose to use..

  69. I concur with Dale above. watched both the national Prayer Service and the Woman’s March. The former was full of people who believed in something the latter people who believe in nothing. I guess I’ll stick with the former.

    The media is all atwitter about there being MORE women participating in DC than came to the inauguration yesterday. from what i have seen and the signs I have seen this is the very 1st Pro Abortion Rally, nothing more, nothing less.

    Listened to Larry Kudlow’s show just now. Many conservative thinkers who ALSO DID NOT HEAR a word Trump said. These guys score very low (both sides) on comprehension. They cherry pick a word then attribute it to the wrong part of the speech.

    Now, t anticipate VH, I wonder if the Media will spend 1/10th of the time on the upcoming Right to Life March that they did on the Right to Death March today?
