    Ahhhh, YESSSS! But where is Cecil the Lion?

    Spot on, Chris. And yet, there’s something about The Donald’s hair. . . . oh, yeah, it’s too neat, it appears combed back instead of combed over. (just kidding)

    And as for being “entertained”, yes and no. It’s like watching a slo-mo train wreck. You know it’s going to happen, it’s inevitable, you’re just not sure who the last one standing will be. You feel pity for the poor Lo-info voters who have to make a decision based only on what what is presented to them. Yet at the same time it’s great fun to see the RINOs and DemonRats exposed and knocked down into the mud of their own making. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” And yet there he/she/they stand, in all their naked emperor “glory”, open to the ridicule of the middle class.

    And I hope that either Trump or Cruz (prefer Ted) will jump the wall and openly confront, even puts the “sword” to those who wear the red and royal purple.

    • GWB

      Concur on The Hair. It should be much more… dynamic, given the action in the scene. 🙂

  • All I want is someone who will do what must be done. I want no bullshit, I want brutality on those who have committed the treason on the nation I still stand ready to defend. I spent 20 years of my life, 74-94, defending this nation against what was installed. I want the brutality of the arena in DC, and I’d rather have it NOW!

    • Heck, we don’t need “the brutality of the arena in DC.”

      There are all those street lamps, and they do need decorating, right?

      Can you say “Democrat piñata”?

      • I’m good with that. Oh yes, I’m good with that.

      • GWB

        And we can put more up if need be.

        A question, though: whence comes the rope? Some say we should buy American, while others would appreciate the irony of using the Chinese stuff, or that American-made rope is too good for the likes of them. What says the crowd? Thumbs up or down?

        • rooftop voter

          I prefer we use good old NOS Com Bloc 7.62X54 in Mosin-Nagants……..

          Rope is too good for the traitors.

          • Pamela

            They aren’t worth the powder and the rope is reusable.
            Think of the environment please.

    • Pamela

      And let God sort them out.

      Where would the lineup stand once the sorting was done?

    It is pleasing to see what Trump is currently doing to the overall conversation. The fun part is how the media set this up themselves. They went into their usual routine of pretending to show support for the most unlikely, outrageous Republican in the mix, while ignoring or attempting to destroy those they actually fear.

    So Walker and Cruz got the character assassinations, and Trump got softballs. Now they can’t figure out how to deal with a guy who is speaking plain truths that they cannot contain within their narrative, or how to attack a guy who admits the things they are accusing him of. Great fun, but having watched who and what the Donald is for over twenty years, he isn’t an option for my presidential vote, because he isn’t an honest conservative, and never has been.

    But there’s a great deal of time between now and decision day.

  • Shonkin

    Okay, the guy getting the gut wound in panel #1 is Christie. But who’s the casualty in panel #3?

    • Snafu F. Ubar

      Is it a woman’s hand there?

    • Snafu F. Ubar

      ok. The Donald pitched his sword at some gobletted-wine drinking aristocrat.

  • Snafu F. Ubar

    This is no simple war we are in…
    When I read of Valley Forge,
    When I read every word of Patrick Henry, spoken on March 23, 1775,
    When I study the corruption of our very money,
    When I witness the forcing of wrath at every opportunity,
    When a most wicked and evil slaughter of the most innocent and most defenseless is, let alone countenanced, but, approved of by great names and corporations, and concealed from the public,

    Then we need much help from (a term learned here) the CINC-ALL.

    It is said: They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

    Our enemies have made lies their refuge. If we will not stop it, when it is stopped by the CINC-ALL, our nation will be stopped as well.

    There is no fence upon which to sit.

    Returning to P. Henry:
    … it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty?…
    …For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it…

    • Iconoclast

      CINC – ALL ??? Couldja enlighten this simple country boy on that one, Snaf?

      • pyrodice

        commander in chief = CINC
        for naval fleets, we had CINCPAC and CINCLANT.
        “all” implies the actual commander in chief of the armed forces.

      • Bill G

        The combo is new to me, but…CINC, or CinC is Commander in Chief.
        Commander in Chief of ALL would be God.

        • Snafu F. Ubar

          I took its meaning to be as Bill G explains it.

    • GWB

      I often turn to Patrick Henry when people speak as if one more election, with just a few more Republicans, will return our freedom.
      Well said, SFU

  • Cliff

    Donald is not a man wedded to a particular philosophy. He is a builder. He is a practical man who will use what ever assets he can find. Ted is more wedded to the Constitution. He sees it for the remarkable document it is. The Constitution is the Gold Standard which is the wealth of our country.

    • Snafu F. Ubar

      And the foundation of the Constitution is the Declaration which required two- hundred years of gestation. There is much to dedend and protect.

      • Snafu F. Ubar

        correction: defend and protect

        • GWB

          Though, for many today it is “depend and to get”

    • Immanuel Goldstein

      Donald is first and foremost a crony capitalist. He specializes is sweetheart real estate deals with the government most interested in his projects. He has shown no interest in governing beyond insulting anybody who disagrees with him. He’s not interested in governmental service and will never have the touch of a chief executive, much less a diplomat.

      • Kafiroon

        And that is supposed to be worse than what we have now?
        Note sweetheart deals to cronys and voting “present” is the mainstay of our current non-executive.

  • Iconoclast

    OK, I get that Trump pitched his sword into the stands, although the target is hard to comprehend. Looks like a female with a platter of goblets? Or is it just that the KY Post Turtle is so wimpy he can pass as female?

    • Chris Muir

      turtle.

  • formwiz

    So where’s Jindal and Fiorina?

    Walker and Carson?

    For that matter, where’s the mightiest gladiatrix of them all, Palinia Barracudas Maximas?

    I seem to recall when Maximus re-fought the battle of Zalma, he had a pretty good posse with him.

  • Bill G

    Calling on Alinsky is appropriate for them. They destroy, with no clue of what they want to build.

    • eon

      Many, if not most of them, don’t really want to build anything. Their hatred of civilization is so great and all-encompassing that they just want to burn everything down and toast marshmallows over the funeral pyre.

      The more self-aware primitive socialists want a Bronze Age agrarian feudal collective, with themselves as the nobles living in castles and the half-billion survivors they define as the “carrying capacity of Holy Mother Gaia” as the serfs living in mud huts and working in the rice paddies. Sort of like “The Hunger Games”, except the gladiatorial games would be daily, not yearly or every four years.

      (Let’s not get into their yen to have random peasants tortured to death as dinner entertainment every evening while they get orally “serviced” under the table by a comely slave- gender optional.)

      The true primitive nihilists don’t even want that. They want everyone else dead, so they can obliterate themselves and leave the Earth “pristine”. The old HC series “Life After People” was their wet-dream in all its “glory”.

      This is why all of the above have a romance going with Islam and all things “Eastern” and “mystical”, going back to the Sixties. They love the brutal, superstitious primitivism of the Second and Third World, with rule by self-anointed “philosopher-kings”- or just whoever is the most homicidally psychotic, which amounts to the same thing.

      In their dreams, the future is a barren wasteland, with them standing limned against the sunrise, with a rictus snarl worthy of Islamic Rage Boy on their faces as they crush a peasant’s windpipe with their bootheel.

      Except for the ones who want the future to be titled “Still Life Without Humanity”.

        Perfectly said….

      • MasterDiver

        Fully concur. All I see in the Greenie is a desire to go back to Life in the State of nature: Nasty, Brutish, and SHORT! They build nothing, but want to profit from everybody else’s labor, and would gladly kill everyone else die as long as they can live in luxury (See Tom Clancy’s “Rainbow Six”).

        Well said. From experience and great personal cost I know that government in the world and the USA is now molded to guide money into certain pockets. Actually solving any problem’ does not fit into their equations. Solving a problem earn retribution from the powers profiting from the ‘problem.’

        We must help create a future unlike those horrors have devised for all.

  • Matthew F.

    Trump’s key supporters are very frustrated (as am I) about immigration. I do not support him for President, but I do support that he should have a cabinet post even though I’m hesitant to even agree. How about the Department of Homeland Security? If he could clean up the immigration mess, then that would be an extremely noteworthy accomplishment for the history books (unless one is an AP history exam writer). Whomever wins the Republican nominee will get my vote though. It is as simple as that after the whole process is over.

    • eon

      The GOPe counts on everyone to be (justifiably) frightened enough of a Democrat extremist in the Oval Office to put their chosen “moderate” in. The trouble is, said “moderate” is still from Codevilla’s Ruling Class, and shares their hatred for the Country Class, i.e., everybody else other than their pet constituencies (whom they simply despise rather than loathe).

      The change has to begin at the top of the GOP. Put simply, the “e”s have to go. Fortunately, time will take care of most of them, as few are much below the old “three-score and ten”.

      Granted, the same holds true for the Dems, but unlike the GOPe, they have an entire academic farm team system to produce bright, shiny new Che’! fans.

      Although they have their own problem, namely that their septuagenarian ruling clique’ is no more anxious to give up power than the GOPers are. (And their prime Fearless Leader has them well trained- but would you expect anything less of Lady MacBeth?)

      There’s an old saying that old ideas aren’t replaced by new ones because people change their minds, but because those who hold them die and are replaced by younger people who have different ideas. This is what is happening in the entire developed world now.

      Just do not expect the Ruling Class to go quietly into the night. They will at least demand cloning, or having their brains preserved in jars. And of course, Absolute Power Forever.

      Failing that, expect them to try to take everyone else with them. One more good reason not to let Hillary! anywhere near the “football”.

      Trump has the ability to get as a resounding victory. This is what is soooooo frustrating to me, yes, Cruz is my man, but I am fully aware that he cannot win, he does not have the ability to connect with people like Donald does.

      We have to win the office to steer the boat.

      Right now I am all in for Trump, and praying for a Trump/Cruz ticket, oh GOD would that be a ticket.

  • bill3542

    how fitting as is what our nation has become… a pack of worthless socialists lead by a closet muslim in the White House.

    Bread and circuses for all the peasants as the emperor has dictated.

  • Bill

    Man. I want some of what you’re on Chris. This is so good I’ve soiled myself

  • It was said of Lady Cuda, “Reagan in a skirt”.

    It’s not true; she possesses some, but lacks many of RR’s traits and talents.

    And now it might be said that the Donald is “Palin in a suit”.

    Speaking impolite and unPC truths, firing up the faithful, disrupting the board meeting and exposing its pretenders…and scaring the piss out of the Blue People. Yet he too lacks much of what RR had.

    But he does have independent wealth, which lends credibility as the money must always be followed; his as well as others’ to its source.

    But Chris’ final clear message in this post, that the most valiant and ruthless warrior in the coliseum today, is playing out a role, entertaining the people and himself. He does not want, nor is he capable of, occupying the throne once the battle is won.

    But the thinning of the herd, the lesson that raw truth can Trump PC and business as usual, is an extremely positive force, and one hopes a presages a sea change in the tides of political and historical directions.

    And it is YUGELY entertaining, just as planned.

  • Damn I forgot the final line and prime message:

    Still looking for our Ronnie, but DT is buying us some time.

  • NotYetInACamp

    We are at war.

    Yet the fate of the war is decided in the arena. Feelings do count.

    The Americans are defeating the nobility created favorites one by one.

    Trump. I heard top in his Class at Wharton Business School.

    Cruz. Top of his class at Harvard Law. The enemy professor says that Cruz was the best debater he ever saw.

    With both many hours at the best undergraduate business school in the nation and many hours in a graduate business school and a jurs doctorate,
    I say that these are great champions of America.

    They do us proud.

    May they massacre the opponents, and I ask little of how they do it.
    This is war.
    Western Civilization and the USA are at stake.
    I care little for the blasphemies any of my champions may utter. I need them. You need them. If any fall, I hope a lesser champion picks up the dropped sword and wins the day for the USA. Those on the thrones and heirs to the thrones must be taken out. And it will feel good and be entertaini9ng, and be the right thing to do.
    Without our champions victories, we are ended. This is real.
    We must win the arena. Then we must win the war.

  • Turk

    Well played sir, well played……

  • All that Ivy League cred is cool and all, but RR was far from being the brightest bulb in the bin…that can be hired, and Ronnie knew that. The nebulous “something” that he had is lacking in all of the wannabes.

    I’ll say this though; if Ted stripped off his shirt in the next debate and he looked like Chris caricature of him? He’s got my vote right then and there.

    One thing about both him and Trump; there’s no way in hell either of them would take the veep for the ultimate establishment choice; that’s what killed the ‘cuda of course. I can’t say that about any of the other wannabes, and that in itself disqualifies them from my consideration for the top job.

    • NotYetInACamp

      The Ivy League cred that I see is valid is that they were different at their establishment schools and excelled over the rest.
      Cruz was totally swimming upstream or against the tide with regards to all of the progressives, Marxists, and Alinskyites that held sway at Harvard.
      Trump is older. Trump has executive experience. A Trump / Cruz ticket could cruise us into 16 years of the President not being a Progressive Alyinskyite Democrat, or a RINO same thing.
      That would be the argument for Trump. There are still lots of good arguments for Cruz.
      Some serious house cleaning and expelling of invading armies might be done in those 16 years, along with opening America back up for innovation and excellence.

      those progressives might get more pensions paid to their government workers if they di that. Otherwise they, too, will sink as the boat goes down. Obama has seriously holed the ship of state and economy in his time at the helm. he stered directly for the rocks, and calls the damage good.

      Ronal was unique, yet not so. he reflected what Americans thought and believed. he encouraged excellence. We need a different style warrior today. A warrior who will not compromise with those who consider a compromise to not be a solution, but just another step to the original goal that must be eventually broken. Witness the Reagan Amnesty that never resulted in the promised Democrat legislation to make it possibly work.

      Cruz would only do it as a strong VP / President in waiting. Trump could live with that, I believe. He delegates power all of the time as it is.

  • I do believe much of what you say… Where we disagree is that we do need a pot us the wall encourage the people to excel, without that we have a captain with no crew to get things done and no passengers to pay the cost of passage. Could that be cruise? Maybe. He has just recently said that the IRS needs to not exist, that in itself could propel the people and the nation to greatness once again.… But I do not think he would take the role of second little, he could not wait eight years to do what he wants to do. As for the Donald? He has done a great deal to turn the process on its head, and I have said that is a very positive accomplishment… But I remain unconvinced that he is in it to win it.

  • Heh… Sorry for the typos and spellcheck, voice text at its best on my phone 🙂 that of course would be potus that will, and Cruze not playing second fiddle …
