    The south residence of the Double D has become like a Fire Academy training asset. It catches fire on a regular basis.

    Dawgs down? Sounds like bogus intel.

    • John M.

      “Dawgs Down” – is Rhett saying the dawgs are on the ground and in contact, or out-of-commission?

      • Lucius Severus Pertinax

        Dawgs Down, strongly suggests the Latter.

  • Whoa, that’s a whole new chapter of the same old book…

    Clarification of radio chatter needed asap!

  • Too Tall

    OTOH, a target rich environment for Naomi with the CheyTac. Are we about to be treated to multiple instant replays of Zed’s last shot as an operational sniper? Will they come with Squeeees?

  • I was about to say how Rhett is one of my least favorite names ever, due to that stupid annoying fake-ass insulting excuse for a movie, but then I saw the Rhetts here, the choppah pilot and the sponsor of today’s toon (what a coincidence right?), and figured I’ll wait to see if they can change my mind about that sullied moniker. 😉

      The movie comes nowhere near the quality of the book, which is a true masterpiece.

      And where’s Scarlett Johansson?

    • Shooter 2.5

      I’m not sure what you mean about the movie being fake. I noticed a great deal of people complaining about poor CGI when back in the day I watched actors in front of painted screens. It didn’t take away from the story.

    • A masterpiece of writing , but a completely false narrative and revised/imagined/romantacized history of the real decisions and struggles to throw off oppression and form a new sovereign nation…

      Add in the ridiculous acting and posing and scripting of the movie and you have succeeded in planting a fabricated and enduring image in many or most people’s minds of the reality that we face again right now almost exactly…and can you imagine how Hollywood would treat that screenplay? About the same as GWTW but with less beautiful imagery like those painted backdrops, and far less beautiful and sympathetic characters playing the roles of what is about to be, pretty much has to be, the new iteration of rebels, to wit: the Signatories to the CRA.

      Art may mimic life but it is so highly edited and stylized as to be relegated to the shelves of fiction and not true history. We have to write and act out this next one ourselves.

    Could this be a reappearance of the Mopar based cyborg?

    (Think “Automated Tabasco” with the AI of the smart-ass Jeeves unit)

    [Sam got creative]

  • John M.

    Rhett’s gonna need a bigger bird than that 269 for “Dustoff” service… “Toly got something else tucked away?

    • John M.

      BTW – is Rhett a new “member of the family” or a Cameo?

    • Perhaps he’s going to “Dust them down” with a tank full of CS powder?

      (Gee, Sheriff, I was just crop dusting an invasive species!)

    Ah, a bug hunt. Green Goo maybe?

    Sounds like the situation on the southern border. A full scale invasion. Way to go! to the people who voted for that idiot old man in the White House and his minions in the House and Senate. We HAD a nice country….once. But it is over now.

  • Mike-SMO

    Swarm attacks ain’t never fun, for either team.

    Pretty cheesy plot device to have half the team scoot off for ‘burgers. Even Ol’ Clausy knew not to “divide the fleet”.

    • eon

      The SOP with coyoteros and their enablers is to keep watch on potential targets along the border. When targets are vulnerable, they use their cell links to call the main body, who spring in, loot and burn en passant, and continue north.

      It’s a way of marking their “new” territory- “This is ours, now”.

      Sort of like a dog pissing on a tree.

    Are those “migrants” hanging purses on a tree to spook anyone?

    Hows about a “surprise” of some kind for the trespassers?

        Oh! Oh! A sticky rainbow glitter bomb with Cats In Heat Come and Get Me Baby I want to Party like it’s 1999 scent.

        I suggested something similar* on Baen’s Bar last year or longer back. The subject was locked down** as it was discussing illegal acts. Apparently, things such as Chemical Dispersal Mines, Moats, and Punji pits(Look it up or go watch the Ballad of the Green Berets with John Wayne)are not legal methods to defend one’s home or Property. A law that needs to be reviewed I’m thinking. At this time, still considered Illegal in all but maybe one state.

        * For those who are wondering, I was looking at the various Paintball Mines that are available(or can be made at home from PVC)filled with Hot Sauce or clothing dye.

        ** (It was in Mike’s Madhouse in the Bar, and may be available for viewing if/when the Bar reopens)

    This is exactly one of the reasons that the 2nd was meant to fully includes fully auto weapons of whatever caliber the owner can afford to feed it. Like to see slow Joe standing out there defending the ranch with his single shot.

    “R200, how do you shoot illegal aliens?” asked Naomi.

    “Easy,” answered R200, “just don’t lead em as much.”

    Ready on the right, ready on the left, range is hot.

      You don’t have to lead at all when they’re coming toward you…

    • JTC

      She is terrified of her own family and acquaintances…I do hope that does not apply to you or others here.

      And her focus is wrong. They are not the enemy, they themselves are victims by and large of the incredibly efficient and multi-tentacled leftist machine…they are Liberals still holding on to what that used to mean, and it is almost certain that virtually none of those who have enough gray matter and/or other attributes that you would engage them in the first place will commit violence against you.

      Make no mistake, the leftists do have dedicated soldiers/operative who would/will kill you by one method or another. So when the writer’s oft-repeated event of “when the balloon goes up” it needs to be us that sends it, preemptively declaring independence and loyalty and action to establish and defend the new sovereign Constitutional Republic of America.

      And I am betting that 99% of those that she fears would rat her out or track her down or kill her in her sleep, will instead take up virtual and literal arms beside her, and you, with you, to defend from the real enemy who hates them as much as they hate you…

      She is right about one thing, that a Civil War will eventually take the place of the Civil Cancel Culture and replacement soldiers (like the ones heading for the ranch), and that violence and bloodshed are certain and imminent.

      Prayers that it be peaceful, but the preparation and planning that Hoyt preaches are critical, to protect and defend from whatever form their hatred and cancellation of us and our rights and our freedoms may take.

      Time’s up! Release the balloon! CRA now!

        Something spooked her, that’s all. Good reason to avoid an online presence in your own name, even a little bit.

        Just sayin”.

      • eon

        Actually, she’s probably correct. Behavior such as she describes is why I haven’t had any contact with my blood relations since my mother’s passing. And that was over two decades ago.

        As somebody once said;

        You must understand that some people never really grow. They never learn their lesson.

        They never recognize their mistakes, they never acknowledge their faults, they never admit that they were in the wrong.

        You will never receive an apology from them, and they will never change.

        And yes, under certain circumstances, people like that can be as dangerous to you as Jason Voorhees is to a promiscuous co-ed.

        All they really need is someone they “worship” to tell them that “their” violence is “speech”. And we’ve already reached that point.

        The idea of someone with the missionary mindset of a Jehovah’s Witness and the propensity for violence of a Tonton Macoute might seem funny, but it’s not. Not when they decide to “proselytize” you.

          Strange…. my sister and I both had a massive falling out with our kid brother. He thought he was entitled to more of Ma’s estate than the two of us put together but Ma’s will said otherwise. That was 25 years ago. He also did and said some things about my sister’s offspring that were grossly rude and completely uncalled for, and when she told me about it, I said it was no surprise, but I sympathized with her completely.

          It’s the “entitlement” mindset that comes into play, whether it’s what your parents left to you or difference in political views.

          Some family rifts can never be mended, period.

        • Exception proves the rule doesn’t it?

          An abusive upbringing and betrayals by family are heart-rending, and to have to physically fear them for your politics must surely twist your perception of broader reality.

          • eon

            The thing is, they never even knew my politics. I never mentioned it around them.

            If they had…hoo boy.

            I probably wouldn’t be here now.

            But they’d tell you about their politics.

            Oh yes, they’d tell you.

      Haven’t read your link, but the answer to the question you post, is that people need the direct comparison. Look at Germany in the Cold War Era, and why it was touted so much, as compared to Greece and Yugoslavia, or South Korea and North Korea. Germany, divided East-West, was a clear and concise argument as to which system was better.

      Now, we have people who lived with some lousy administrations run by DNC/PLD idiots, with pretty tepid GOPe administrations in between. Then we had the MAGA Administration of Honestly and Duly Elected President Donald J Trump, which arguably, was maybe even better than Reagan’s Administration.

      Now, we’re stuck with Biden-Harris, and the failures are piling up like highway mass accident, and it isn’t Biden-Harris alone who’s looking like idiots. Newsome in California has two million signatures on the recall petition already, Cuomo is having to deal with Sexual Harassment charges, and fifteen thousand dead senior citizens his policy killed, and every governor who followed his example there.

      The Price of gas has increased by over 45% possibly as much as 65% in some states, due to the energy policies coming out of Fortress DC, and tens of thousands of people who were working long-term, full time jobs have been laid off because of Biden-Harris.

      Do you really think the DNC/PLD will be able to hold the House and Senate in 2022? I don’t, and I hope enough Moderates and Conservatives are lining up to be workers in their states Polling stations, to make absolutely sure that the vote is as honest as possible.

    SitRep(Situation Report) is a condensed version of events done for the sake of brevity and to try and keep an enemy from triangulating where the person making the report is. This one is bad news;

    ‘South Parcel residence on fire’ means the house has been set on fire(Obviously).

    ‘Dawgs down,’ refers to the robotic sentry/guard units, and that they have been disabled or destroyed.

    ‘Hundreds of illegals headed your way,’ means that upwards of 100(probably more like upwards of 400-500)Illegal Immigrants have decided they are going to take the main house complex, and against that many, even if Zed and associates were willing to shoot them, they likely would be overrun. That’s the reason for the ‘Get back for Dustoff.’ command.

    A hard choice, but the correct one, since the DNC/PLD would be hoping to hang a Murder/Mass Murder charge on the occupants of the Double D.

    In other News, tried to spread the word about the PLD attack on Baen Publishing.

    My mistake was thinking these people might be allies in the fight;
