    Ya just gotta love that guy. Both of ’em.

  • How about some of these?

    Get to the point, Edna.

      If you find my answers troubling perhaps you should ask better questions.

      I like the way “Mad Dog” thinks and acts, especially what he demands of his people.

      • Grunt GI

        Seriously how awesome would it be if Mad Dog visited his old comrade Zed at the DDQ? Imagine the swooning?!

        Chris..are you out there?? :). Whaddya think?

      If anyone had reservations about Trump like I did, then I hope Trump’s choice of Mad Dog settled your concerns like it did for me.

    Winston’s the one we need to borrow a TARDIS for taking out to dinner and a chat… 🙂

      Dinner, Cigars and a nice Madeira

    • NotYetInACamp

      Fine suggestion. Mine’s on the fritz. Sad. If you locate another it would be a marvelous dinner and smoke with some fine Madeira, and I would love to join you all for the pleasantries. The company would be fantastic.

          “The Mistress”

  • Bill G

    Looking for an amusingly appropriate quote to suggest as an answer for the General I found that Mr. Clemens had said this:
    “Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.’

    • eon

      Another general had a similar opinion to Mr. Clemens;

      “If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast.”

      —-General William Tecumseh Sherman, 1863.

      and

      “Newspaper correspondents with an army, as a rule, are mischievous. They are the world’s gossips, pick up and retail the camp scandal, and gradually drift to the headquarters of some general, who finds it easier to make reputation at home than with his own corps or division. They are also tempted to prophesy events and state facts which, to an enemy, reveal a purpose in time to guard against it. Moreover, they are always bound to see facts colored by the partisan or political character of their own patrons, and this brings army officers into the political controversies of the day, which are always mischievous and wrong. Yet, so greedy are the people at large for war news, that it is doubtful whether any army commander can exclude all reporters, without bringing down on himself a clamor that may imperil his own safety. Time and moderation must bring a just solution to this modern difficulty.”

      —-Sherman, 1864.

      Words as true today as they were at Gettysburg and Manassas.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    LOVE that conversation. It’s a good thing my wife wasn’t up here, she’d wonder what was wrong with me.
    But why is President Trump (that will NEVER get old) talking to Gen Mattis about the presstitutes? Spicer should be in on this conversation.

  • Spin Drift

    In dealing with the presstitutes, I’d paraphrase one of the Generals heralded comments. To wit “this time I’m bringing artillery.”

    Spin
    War Damn Screaming Eagle
    Semper Fidelis

    • Bill G

      That’s the one that I wish could be applicable. But General Mattis would not need artillery for a handful of media scum.

      • MasterDiver

    • No. All he needs is 30 seconds of staring at them.

  • JTC

    CNN did miss. As have they all as this President’s Men intentionally lure them in and draw fire, until the “enemy of the people’s” arsenal of lies is depleted. And then the artillery.

    I for one look forward patiently to the day when that pompous, familiar blurb, voiced by a defeated and despondent James Earl Jones, becomes…

    This…WAS CNN.

  • I like this one, because it scared off a mugger on my back steps: You know, I haven’t killed anyone since 1968. You want me to start now?

    See the scar above my left knee? Do you want to find out what happened to the guy who gave it to me?

    • NotYetInACamp

      I love that.
      Friends have told me horrific stories that they had, of course, survived. Some by way of talk. Others by way of horrific actions by them on the assailants. Thank God they were not shrinking violets, though some had the appearance of being such. I have heard the other stories also.
      I am glad your statements worked.

    • Pamela

      Delilah

      I used the following for a cretin that would not take NO for an answer.
      “You even try to hurt me, and once I’m done, I will come after you with friends.”
      I then pointed to several Gentlemen behind him. He left.

      In Islam it says that it is a compassionate act to send the homosexual to see Allah. So it is also compassionate to send the Muslim to see Allah, Islam says in paradise.

      • Pamela

        Well they can go and try to see whomever they want.
        Getting past the Guardian of the Gates to Paradise is another matter entirely. She’s right picky on who gets in. Pedophiles, Defilers of the Innocents, Slavers, Destroyers of life, limb and land please exit down the stairs to your eternal rewards. Oh, it is a bit warm. Well maybe more along the lines of hot. Burning Hot.

        • NotYetInACamp

          paradise is not Paradise.

          Allah is the Great Deceiver.

          Satan is the Great Deceiver.

  • The more accurate quote is, “Kill them all. God will recognize His own.”

    • John

      It dates from at least the Albigensian Crusade, which has been cited as “the first ideological genocide”. Let this be a warning, the Albigensian Crusade was Christian against Christian.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Islam has committed ideological genocide from its inception. Death to the infidel.

        Several Crusades were perverted to personal gains against other Christians.

    Speaking of getting shot at… The dhimmicrats claim on President Trump (I can type President again without cringing): “This is not even close to a normal Cabinet,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said earlier this month. “I have never seen a Cabinet this full of bankers and billionaires, folks with massive conflicts of interest and such little experience or expertise in the areas they will oversee.”
    In other words Chuckie, A Cabinet of successful, accomplished people that Know what the are doing instead of politicians and dreamers.

    • eon

      Chuckles obviously doesn’t know the history of his own party. See Woodrow Wilson’s cabinet, FDR’s “Dollar A Year Men”, JFK’s cabinet on the domestic side, etc.

      I think JFK valued competence; he wanted cabinet officials who knew what they were talking about. FDR mainly wanted people who would do what he told them to.

      It was Wilson who set the pattern for Democrat cabinets in the last half-century (LBJ and later).

      He wanted people who would tell him he was Right About Everything.

      Splunge.

        Obama did not need people who would say anything to him, or needed any orders from him.
        The IRS knew to obstruct and destroy the conservatives, libertarians, faith based, and independents who , everyone who mattered, knew were the evil scum of the earth and should have been executed at a wall in a perfect world, which they were all attempting to create. This is similar to how much of the Ummah thinks and acts. no communication is necessary to extend the cause.
        The EPA, The DOJ, All in the federal administration, who mattered, knew what to do against the evil ones not of the body.

    • If you substitute ‘buffoons’ for ‘dreamers’, I would agree with you.

    • NotYetInACamp

      I can almost say Did Obama have a Cabinet?”

      It is hard to put a name to more than one, if that.
      Obama had un-vetted czars. That is how Obama ruled, along with his phone and pen.

      People who see reality and can make decisions and make a difference are what is needed. The Democrats seem to set the village idiots up in positions of power, and then attempt to pull the idiots strings.

      • Ozymandias

        Czars.. My people left Europe to get away from that kind of crap.

    General Mattis – a realist

  • Bill G

    Another Mattism would be excellent advise for the President in dealing with the DMC:
    “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

    • NotYetInACamp

      That concept has kept me alive in a few situations. Personal situational awareness is important. For the President it includes National situational awareness.

  • NotYetInACamp

    The invader is the invader. Treat them as such.

  • Swansonic

    And a report from the joint session – the dems segregated themselves so they could be seen dissing the President. Guess they don’t want to be considered American like the rest of us….

  • JTC

    My favorite Mattis because it flies in the face of #29:

    “a country that armed Stalin to defeat Hitler can certainly work alongside enemies of al-Qaida to defeat al-Qaida.”

    Smart man.
