    I’m so glad that you’re finding ways to keep “Wade’s” memory alive. Well done, Son.

    • Pamela

      Ditto to that

  • JTC

    Lovin’ DT doing his Eastwood squint.

  • Tim

    Oh, if only wishing made it so.

    • Ozymandias

      Amen to that.

  • Kevin M

    Pretty to think so. –E. Hemingway.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    I’m not as handsome as Wade, but I’m still willing to pick up a weapon in service to this country. Dems, RINOs, presstitutes, all same-same to me. Just point me in a direction.

    • Weapons are memes, for now.

      • For now. Let us hope the memes carry the weight to preclude the actual weight of iron.

      • Grunt GI

        SO, the best meme I have seen is the one that says

        “Liberals want to have a civil war. One side has 8 trillion rounds of ammo, the other side can’t figure out which bathroom to use.”

        Heh, that made me smile.

        • Swansonic

          That is awesome.

        • Pete in NC

          Yep.

      • Too Tall

        Best. DBD. Ever.

        I got nothin’

      • RooftopVoter

        Amen, let’s hope they are effective and prepare if they aren’t.

  • Interventor

    With 40.5 years in defense of the nation, as soldier and civilian, never thought the worst threat would be a bullet in the back.

    • MasterDiver

      Or a knife.

      Zar Belk!

  • Interventor

    Until, now!

  • WayneM

    There’s room here for a pun about DJT having to wade in to drain the swamp…

  • Brilliant. Felt good.

    • What will make it feel better is some level of reality to this storyline. Yes, shooting them would be one way. Voting them out, and doing it to the level of shame, will be better.

      • GWB

        You have to not just vote them out individually, though. They will have to be tossed in bulk – all three branches, from the President to the lowliest bureaucrat. And that requires a return to an attitude of self-sufficiency and belief in the ideals of our Founding Fathers among the electorate at large. A return that I have a hard time seeing happening.

        • Exactly.They are a symptom of a populace that has lost its morals-it’s virtue,in the Greek-and its way.Ground up is the key, and Irony calls them…Deplorables.

          • Dienekes

            Now that’s a pinwheel X if there ever was one! Well said.

  • Bill G

    Truth is the weapon the statists fear most; that’s why they want to block Talk Radio and the free internet.
    If the guns come out we all lose, even though the statist elites figure they can stay on top no matter what.
    Speaking of memes, I love the one that says:
    Folks keep talkin’ about another civil war. One side has 8 trillion bullets. The other doesn’t know which bathroom to use.

    • Rock and roll! 😀

  • Graybeard

    “America is at that awkward stage; it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” – Clair Wolfe, 1995

    Not by much…

    • GWB

      I need to put that one on a plaque. Maybe with a countdown clock on it…….

  • Redleg

    Why is Trump taking a vacation? Now is the time for a shootout.

    Use recess appointments to fill any vacancies that Trump has submitted nominations that the Senate hasn’t had time to approve. If the Democrats are determined to hamper Trump by “slow walking” consent, Trump has a Constitutional response: recess appointments.

    Fire government employee resistance members. I think a Facebook statement, “Resist Donald Trump” or the like should be sufficient grounds for firing, even for permanent employees. Recess appoint replacements.

    • GWB

      Except the SCOTUS said you can’t use them just to bypass consent.

      • David Lang

        note that they approved 78 appointments on their last day of work (more than they had done since the election). Trump needs to take the next couple of weeks and setup the next big batch of appointments and get them to the Senate so they are hanging over their heads along with their other work when they get back.

      • Redleg

        As I recall, SCOTUS said the Senate decided when it was in recess. The President (big zero) couldn’t decide the Senate was in recess (over the weekend) and make recess appointments.

        McConnel has declared the Senate in recess, clearing the path for Trump to make recess appointments. To prevent Obama from making recess appointments, the Senate held pro forma meetings during what normally would have been recesses.

        Trump is free and clear to make recess appointments; not to say that some Seattle judge may try to override him.

    • David Lang

      Trump is not going to be in DC, that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to be working.

      I seriously doubt that he is going to take what most people would consider a “vacation” for the next several years. He’s too much of a work-a-holic for that. With Congress out of session, he doesn’t have a big need to be in DC, the White House needs some repairs, so he will be working elsewhere for a couple of weeks.

    • Pamela

      They are doing renovations of the West Wing according to the News.
      I think they are on a BUG HUNT for Leaks and Critters with big ears. They should also look at the Gov’t issued cell phones and computers to see when they were purchased (maybe under O’s tenure) and then check on added spyware. Just saying.

      • Halley

        What you said. The malignant rot from 09-16 is deeper than anyone imagined. RAID raid?

      • JTC

        Had not thought of that or seen it speculated but it makes perfect sense…good call, P.

        • JTC

          But as to the most recent and most egregious leak, scripts of PDT convo with heads of state, passed to the damn NYT?

          Very coincidental with the firings of two insiders that I had a bad gut reaction to right along, Priebus and Scaramucci, and I wouldn’t put it past either of them to sell us out for payback. Mooch came along well after but Rancid has been there right along, and I’ve felt a RINO vibe from him since way pre election.

          So a full gut-job and housecleaning is in order at the WH because a traitor in the house is not mutually exclusive of surreptitious bugs, but if it comes back that slimeball was behind it? Well then it’s time to ask Gen. Kelly how they might deal with that kind of subversion in USMC, and I’m pretty sure reverting to Wade’s non-metaphorical “firing” method would come quick to his lips. And that would be a Public Service I could get behind.

          • Pamela

            I remember something about a tap into the WH Comm systems during the Clinton years. Whose to say some outside/inside bad actor source isn’t at it again.

    • NotYetInACamp

      The REPUBLICAN House and REPUBLICAN Senate will remain in a pro forma session with few minute meeting every three days for each house.
      If they were not in this contrived session, the President could name all of the temporary appointments he desired. ‘Permanent’ appointments require the vote of the Senate.
      The Senate required no objections to do this.

      ‘Who is on the side of the American people?’ is a good question.

      I believe Obama just tried to appoint someone during a pro forma session. That may be why the US Supreme Court smacked it down.

    • Interventor

      Congress is still officially working, not in recess. Specifically to stop appointments.

  • Bill

    Damn. Excellent.

  • NotYetInACamp

    They really can’t stand up to the truth.

    Truth wins. By memes or other ways.

    More winning. They can’t stand, and will censor, winning.

    Wade right through and bring more winning.

    The American people know what truth is. They know what is right. They know who should be winning. They know who is winning. They stand up for what and who is right and they win.

    • Pamela

      Truth is anathema to them.
      It does not fit the story line where they are the Redeemers of the Republic they wish to cast asunder for the Greater Good. They remind me of Boromir when he was bewitched. As it is there is no way they can be redeemed at the last minute.

  • Dick Parks

    Too many apostrophe’s. Call ’em “Rinos”.

  • Richard

    I read one story that said we had 600,000,000 guns and 12,000,000,000 rounds of ammunition. I can see the next Civil War (The American Revolution 1.1) starting in New York where they have confiscated 34,500 the weapons of legal gun owners, and the Idiot Governor said that he will fight if Congress passes Constitutional Carry.

  • Kafiroon

    That is a nice dream, but when those inbred idiots start it, they will hide out in their bolt holes and let the low levels take the hit. SJwhiners, anti-whatever, Blacks Mattering killing blacks, Vag hat skreechers. But the academics, judges, presstitues, hollywierd, and many crooked politutes will just lay low until they come back out to continue their rot.

  • JW

    Attorney General Russert: For the record, I don’t like the way this turned out any more than you do, but this is the world we live in and justice does not always prevail. It’s not the Wild West where you can clean up the streets with a gun…{looking him straight in the eye}… even though sometimes that’s exactly what’s needed. Bob Lee Swaggert, you’re free to go.

    Shooter 2007

    • Two thumbs up on the Swaggert quote.

  • JTC

    The shootin’ irons are a not-so-new-fangled meme, a metaphor for what needs to happen…what is happening really, albeit at excoriatingly and excruciating pace.

    The Ranger Wading in is a metaphor too of course, for the cascade of Deplorables that have to stay the course and keep the pressure on for the “firings”.

    This is one vast swamp, with patches of quicksand where you least expect it. The process to drain it will continue to be long and painful…and deadly, prayers to God that too will be metaphorical. But it could turn all too real, if the alternative is them or us.

    • Pamela

      I’m not sure of the percentage of civil servants that would be terminated for not doing their jobs or for watching porn during working hours ~ which in the private sector would get them fired immediately ~ but the houses of Government need a cleaning just as a rank outhouse needs clearing out.

      • John

        The only way to clean up the Civil Service is to contract their jobs out. The whole country would be better served if the only civil servants were those whose job was to draw up and enforce those contracts. That leaves private enterprise to streamline services, whatever they might be, and puts a premium on requiring Government to actually draw up well defined enforceable law.
        The Deep State would find very little wiggle room in such an environment.
        Fat chance of this happening though.

        • Interventor

          Contracting out hasn’t worked well. Cost more than government employees . After first contracted period. Plus, they leave, with institutional knowledge. Repair tanks, artillery, etc. No contractor since WWII has completed a towed artillery contract. Civil servants at Rock Island Arsenal had to complete the contract. One example.

  • Lewis P Snyder

    So you’re a fan of Once Upon a Time in the West! Well done. People never see their past coming up behind them!

  • armedandsafe

    Think about this:
    U.S. Code › Title 10 › Subtitle A › Part I › Chapter 13 › § 311
    (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
    (b) The classes of the militia are—
    (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
    (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

    Some time after that, the United States passed a law that the Federal government could not discriminate on basis of age, over the age of majority. Thus, the “under 45 years of age” disappears.

    Some time after that, the United States passed a law that the Federal government could not discriminate based on gender. Therefor, the “males” disappears.

    That leaves us with “able-bodied” ” at least 17 years of age” and “who are, or who have made a declaration to become, citizens of the United States…”

    If you are able-bodied, over 16 years old and a citizen or have declared, you ARE the militia. Whether you join a group to become “A well regulated Militia” is up to you.

    • Sweet perfection of the evolution of the meaning of militia re: 2A.
