    Nailed it, Chris. (Again)

  • JTC

    Actually ALL of those things benefit ALL Americans Pence…

    Again, the wall is not POTUS’ One Job, but it is his Job One.

    And it’s half past way too fucking late to get that job DONE.

  • JTC

    Mission statement for Zed:

    You’ve answered the call before. Do it again.

    Your hired gun needs your help. He needs ALL our help.

    • kadaka

      Comic fine print, Zed has worked for The Company, which does not necessarily involve helping the current Prez.

      • JTC

        News flash…Answering the call for his country, not for any politician except to help his country (as with the sandbox before and the wall right now).

        The Company R us and POTUS is CEO, helping him helps us.

      • Delilah T.

        I doubt that Zed is anyone’s beck and call boy.

  • kadaka

    The tax cuts didn’t help average Americans in need?

    Now that Assange is arrested, Trump should make sure they investigate Chelsea Transmanning and get that butt back in federal lockup. I want them to find out why Barry O gave them that Get Out of Jail Free card when he no longer had worry about sucking up to any special interest group.

    • Roland Deschain

      Actually, I had heard that people did not appreciate the tax cuts because their refunds were smaller. True story. They did not notice the slightly larger paychecks but noticed the smaller refunds. They are so brainwashed that they do not realize that it is their money they are getting back, not the “government’s money”.

      • JTC

        “…it is their money they are getting back, not the “government’s money”.

        True on the second part, gov got no money but ours.

        Which brings us to the first part. Let me suggest a primer on something called the Earned Income Credit (an hilarious misnomer if ever there was one)…they’re not getting anything “back”, they are the recipients of social(ist) redistribtion on a massive scale. Gov handed it out but it came straight from our pockets.

        Every year February was my biggest for sales, not December as you would expect. Some of my pawn customers talked for months about getting their check at which time they would bail out their pawned goods and spend like drunk sailors on anything their hearts desired…often well into the thousands of dollars. And all from “unemployed” or “disabled” able-bodied men, and women who got big bonuses for having too many kids by baby daddy’s they never married.

        That’s what has been somewhat curtailed and that’s why freeloaders and their enablers who counted on their bought votes are majorly pissed about the great “refund” reduction.

    DJT must know the Wall is going to continue to be a yuge issue and perhaps his worst liability for re-election. The more he raises the issue and gets more & more info, especially from those Americans directly impacted by the constant influx, the less credible the Democrats/mainstream media will look…

    Hopefully the “Never Trumpers” in the Republican Party finally realize what DJT is achieving and will put aside their personal animus against him.

    • kadaka

      There are “Never Trumpers” like William Kristol and The Bulwark suffering their own version of Trump Derangement Syndrome, and they’d rather let it all burn if they can’t have their version of a conservative Republican Party.

      The other type of “Never Trumpers” are resigned to “What the heck, we won, stuff’s getting done, we can play along and wait for President Pence or Cruz or Liz Cheney.”

      • Browncoat

        I’m of the second type… The “What the heck, we won…” subspecies.

        First, how the hell do you lump Liz Cheney in with the likes of Ted Cruz?

        Second, what makes believers like me (still have my Cruz stickers on my truck) different than Trumpkins who will unflinchingly vote for him without a wall?

        • PaulS

          I’ll put it this way, being a former Cruz’r Myself.
          Ted didn’t make the ticket, and since, has disappointed me with several actions and statements disparaging this President that don’t help the country.
          President DJT won, and in spite of the 24/7 Multifront investigation attack’s, has accomplished quite a lot of good for the country and has not disappointed me.
          Pretty much all of the “objectionability” I hear regarding PDJT are matters of style rather than substance, and shouldn’t we really be about substance?
          Sure I want the wall, does anyone really believe there is no progress there, or that there wouldn’t be Current sections being demolished under the other parties candidate(s)?

          Exactly how fast did you expect the unfucking of the Country to take? Especially when getting your own party onboard is as tough as the opponent. DJT ain’t the Teflon President, he seems to be more like the Unobtainium President!
          Now, bring in another delivery of ShitToFix(tm), stat!!

        • JTC

          @Browncoat,

          Unflinchingly keeping the Cruz faith eh? And with zero accomplishments that I have seen, and quite a bit of disappointing behavior, not least of which was damn near losing his seat to frickin’ Beta Boy, would it be the same if he were POTUS running for re-election against him/it? Not very inspiring.

          And none of that gives me pleasure to say…in ’16 I was of the firm belief that DJT just wanted to win but did not really want the grueling task of being prez, and hoped for a Trump/Cruz ticket that would let the latter be a firebrand for four years and president the next four after The Donald went back to doing deals and living the high life in Palm Beach.

          I was wrong. Trump has stunned me with his stamina and his pure pursuit of what is good for the Deplorables that put him in the big chair, and by extension what is best for America and the world. Odd methodology for sure, but you just cannot argue with the successes that he likes to tick off as in the ‘toon here and in real life.

          Further and even more important, I have come to believe that his patriotism is real, that his heart is pure, and that his aims are dead-on accurate to save the country from devolving into a macrocosm of TBWGBUTB…or worse, a full-on Socialist Republic.

          Thank God things went as they did and Cruz was relegated to frustrated and envious sniping and obscurity. And let me say thank God for Pence as well…I don’t know if he is up to the top job, but by the time Trump is done in ’24 (prayers that it will be so) the country might be more able to be administered by someone with his quiet but strong methods and personality.

          • PaulS

            For a second there I thought I posted twice. 😉
            Amen brother!

          • JTC

            Yeah that little spiel has been a pretty common refrain from me. Amen is right!

        • kadaka

          Someone’s going to be the first female President. Would you prefer Representative Liz Cheney or Senator Elizabeth Warren? I don’t think Stacey Abrams is going to make the cut, and as Wikipedia puts it, “Cheney is the House Republican Conference Chair, the third-highest position in GOP House leadership.” Do you got a better choice?

          • JTC

            I like Liz. I like Judge Jeanine too, but not for prez, neither of them, nor any other female, at least in my lifetime; 20 years at the outside.

            And with two 40-something very conservative and quite accomplished daughters, it ain’t got nothing to do with misogyny or any of that other made-up lefty label crap.

            It just is not what the country or the world needs at this stage of evolution/revolution. SCOTUS OTOH…

  • Punta Gorda

    Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring… Banana-phone!

  • NotYetInACamp

    I suppose that is why he went down to Texas.

    Management by walking around enables an executive at any level to find out many things that one never gets to know if they stay in an office.

    On a trip to the border he gets to hear from people living and working near the border and not just what is filtered through the wall put up around him by …..

  • Bruce Frank

    The wall was the major reason for the hire. The rest is applying the art of the deal, Getting wages up; getting unemployment down (Way down). China is a security problem and turning the screws is proper. The rest of the world also needs our market more than we need their product…but it will winnow out!

  • eon

    As far as helping average Americans, putting a leash on the EPA, FBI and BATFET and taking the “progressives'” leash and muzzle off ICE would be a big help, too.

    The presidency of DJT is only a brief reprieve just before the USA goes fully to hell, losing its status as a real nation and folding into the new world order. If he can keep succeeding on his campaign promuses, including securing our borders, guve us second term, then leave his clone in office, we stabd a chance if surviving as a free nation. If he fails to keep the support of the American people, well, get ready to write off one country. Obama’s handlers will have succeeded.

  • Kafiroon

    Right On, Chris!
    Especially after talking to locals highly affected.
    Damn the opposition! Build the Wall! Full Speed Ahead!

    ‘Sick And Twisted’: Liberals Flip Out Over Trump Proposal To Drop Illegals In Sanctuary Cities

    And some of them suddenly appeared to be concerned that a rapid influx of illegal migrants might actually pose some of the threats Trump has been claiming it would.

    Trump has been lying, there have been no problems, we can keep absorbing 1,000 to 4,000 new people a day without issue. As long as we don’t put them in the communities that will welcome them the most and have sworn to protect them, because then ‘some people might do something’. Primo logic there, proggies.

  • Zed, answer the damned phone! There is still work to do, the sort that needs a certain specific set of skills. AHEM.

    • Stephanie Osborn

      Last we saw of Zed, he was on the south 40 with Sam, surveying the damage, remember?

  • JTC

    But not as funny as some of the wackjob unhinged crazy that oozes I’m from time to time. 🙂

    • JTC

      Oozes in…hey Skidmark you’re right that is funny!

      • JTC

        Well shoot, leave a guy snarking with a ghost why doncha Muir?

        Yeah yeah I should know that by now ;I

        • Gammas like him
          gonna gamma, but not here.

    • This is a good idea!

    • NotYetInACamp

      I agree.

      Barring the building of sufficient security along the border to reduce the democrat encouraged and often paid for invasion, put them where it damages the bad people in charge of the horror shows they call their progressive governments. They call doing it to good governments a Cloward-Piven Strategy, named for the 2 Columbia radical professors who proposed this form of it.

      The strategy has been used for millenium as a means of war against populations one desires to defeat or destroy. Clog them up with useless consumers of the state’s production. an old and venerated plan.

  • NotYetInACamp

    The too recently often, to me, Disappointing Glenn Beck returns to good work with a description of some of the people active in the caravan invasion force organizing, payment, and implementation. He brings back some of his old charts that he was correct about, and some new ones that hit to the heart of some of the matter.
    We got Chicago rising star super hero Marxists. “Church” people. Soros. And many others including usual suspects.
    It’s an invasion, I say. Marxists tring to destroy yet another country so, this time, they can create Utopia. They might get the destruction.

      “Church” people.

      Just saw tonight on the teevee news where Bannon has gone to the source of that shit to attack the king of Vatican City where he lives, even buying and refurbing a castle compound to live in and found a school to teach the ways of true religion devoid of the rancid depraved pure marxism that has consumed that place and so much of that “church” which is the furthest thing one can imagine from belief in the teachings of Christ.

  • Once you know the game, you know the game doesn’t change.

    If you want to get hyped up over one party verses another, have at it and enjoy yourself, but they’re still both parties of Babylon. They know how to speak your language, or how to ignore it, such as it suits them. Welcome to the machine. Welcome to Rome. Welcome to Babylon.

    Welcome to the Hotel California. You can checkout any time you like, certainly, but you can never leave because the alternatives presented as competition all lead you back to another franchise of Hotel California. They even pretend to hate each other, and may even put one another’s branches out of business, but it’s all to keep up the show so you’ll always be putting your hope into one of their affiliates. It’s the Dialectic Method.

    • JTC

      Lyle, if the rise of Deplorables has exemplified anything it is that parties no longer mean shit, if they ever really did. lt ain’t about a party.

      Also, in this particular venue it is more than a little annoying to try to come off as the only one uniquely gifted with the insight that for the most part politicians are only about their own perpetuation. Got it.

      But as usual the exceptions prove the rule and what is undeniable is that there are factions who have real and dark agendas bent on destruction and domination and a few who are willing and ready to fight to the death to prevent it.

      Fatalism is not preordained but it is self-ordaining.

    • Chris Muir

      No blackpilling,please.

      • kadaka

        I was trying to figure out if there was an “originating thought” then the word generator took over or if it was all “click Compose”. It’s not WaPo article quality but it could do long Twitter posts.

      • Swansonic

        blackpilling? Could someone explain that term to me?

        Thanks in advance.

        • kadaka

          Thinking it’s hopeless, going nihilistic, we’re going to lose anyway so might as well blow shit up, etc.

          • NotYetInACamp

            Cut to the Doom, Despair, and Agony, OOO OOO song from Hee Haw. 🙂 They also blow things up real good on that old show.
            Hee Haw was prophecy?! ooo ooo

    Two years of collusion delusion didn’t speed things up.

  • You want blackpilling? Screw it, just light the atmosphere of the planet. Kill everyone, everyTHING not underwater. And then give it a hundred years or so before those you know are already in underwater domes to survive same come up. Screw it, I tire of it all.

    OR, Remember Your OATH. Mine had no expiration date, as I recall.

    President Trump, call us old farts back in to clean up the enemies of our Republic, of our Constitution. From the halls of government to the alley ways by the dumpsters.
