    Very well done,Chris

  • Norm

    A little “battle of the bulge” reference?

    • GWB

      In the movie Battleground, the German is being released back through the lines after meeting McAuliffe, and his aide gets out of the Jeep. He turns to one of the main characters and asks, “Herr General is confused. This ‘nuts’… is it affirmatif oder negatif?”
      The soldier responds, “Oh, it’s negative, definitely negative!”

    Speaking of pain, my thoughts and prayers to the families and coworkers of the police officers murdered in Dallas.

    THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

    Who takes the place of King George? BHO or HRC?

    • JSStryker

      Well done! and the answer is yes.

    • Methinks that today’s culture, by and large, doesn’t have the balls. Only those who are truly dedicated, who have sworn their lives to the defense of this nation and that glorious anchor of this nation, knowing what it was, might stand.

    • Barbara Skolaut

      “Who takes the place of King George? BHO or HRC?”

      No reason it can’t be both.

      • Pamela

        There are many that want the good life without understanding the price previously paid or working for it.

        Neither play well with others and the thought of them sharing anything, even infamy, conjures a picture of two year old brats squabbling over a toy, then breaking it.

    Look it up, BOINGO-Bitch….

  • NotYetInACamp

    The whole battle, as far as the progressives go, has been to bind everything in the nation to the center, federal power, then to take over that center and rule.
    Whys and how are a different matter. they have taken the center and believe that their rule must dominate, and that all must obey them. All who do not obey shall be subject to the one order, “EXTERMINATE!” “EXTERMINATE!” “EXTERMINATE!”

    The appropriate response to their demands for surrender and submission is correct and concise. I repeat the answer that you stated so succinctly (We do live in a target rich environment):

    “NUTS.”

  • NotYetInACamp

    Those White house response things they have set up for response from the “people.”

    With instructions i will set one up with just that one word.
    Otherwise someone here who has swam in the net more so that I can do that. then I will add my name to it. I wonder if we can hit a million ‘signatures?’

    I would like to have my name at the top of it, but, that honor belongs elsewhere unless relinquished or not claimed. Would they even understand it?

  • Spin Drift

    What the elites in DC regretfully understand is that we have them fully surrounded, the poor bastards. Keep pushing fools and see where this ends up. I used to live in Dallas and met the pretty wife there. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families. Please let the future not be filled with most days.

  • Gunner

    We are going to be having a long hot summer, very reminiscent of Detroit/’67, or Miami/’80. LA/’92, Cincinnati/’01, Ferguson/’14, etc etc etc.

    The festering boil that is black bigotry, coupled with widespread police malfeasance and a rightly and heavily armed population..and the ever present video cam or cellphone….is about to POP! with a very ugly result. 50+ yrs of the effects ever increasing Liberalism is just about ready to blow the top off the nation…and its going to be a very..very ugly thing.

    • Where I see a certain perverse beauty in it.

  • Delilah T.

    My thoughts are with the families of the police officers killed and wounded in Dallas, TX and other places today.

    The public process of choosing an elected official must not be disrupted by a pack of fools who underestimate their opposition. That is US. One whack job with a hair up his ass does not a movement make, or at least not in the direction he intended. It is, instead, bringing a LOT of people closer together, people of ALL sorts, who want the same thing: an END to the race-baiting and the attempts to destroy this free country of ours.

    “Sir, the enemy has us surrounded.”
    “Good! We have them exactly where we want them.”

    I have said for years that men who take power by coup do not willingly relinquish it. I fully expected martial law if Dear Leader lost in ’12. Then repubs nominated Romney and I KNEW we had dodged that bullet for another 4 years.

    The only fly in the ointment I can see with any plan to bring about a declaration of martial law is Hildabeast going along with it. There were sources 8 years ago that indicated Hildabeast’s workers had been threatened (a few were, apparently roughed up) so she stepped aside without raising too big a stink. If I were Dear Leader and wanted to hang around for a while, I’d have told Lynch and Comey to go after her with everything they had. And I don’t think some anonymus envelopes with pix of Chelsie’s house with a mil-dot reticle superimposed over it would impress Cankles all that much. So, I don’t know … But it’s gonna get real “interesting” real quick.

    Now I I was the one hoping to stay in office, I might “arrange” for some serious civil unrest AFTER the big election. That way Hildabeast gets to go down in history as the first woman elected president while still not having to give up the perks of being POTUS. After all, if Dear Leader actually leaves office who’s gonna pay for Mooshell’s multiple-million doallar excursions?

    • David Gonzalez

      The BoFP, perhaps? In the same vein, I’d love to see Dear Leader awarded a richly-deserved third term—he could serve it in Fort Leavenworth!

      • Indeed.

      • Old Codger

        Remember DeBalzac’s sage words
        “The law is a spider web that lets large flies slip through while trapping smaller ones.” If the Federal Bureau of Incompetence HAD actually recommended prosecuting Hildabeast, I would have started listening for trumpet arpeggios aand scales as Gabriel was warming up his lip for that solo to end ALL solos (literally).

      • DASTARDLY DAN

        No, not Leavenworth, GITMO with the other Muslim enemy combatants.

        • Barbara Skolaut

          +100

  • Bill G

    Bwah-hah-hahahahaha! Yes, a reference to military history would be completely over the head of Dear Leader who says ‘Corpseman’.

    Little known fact;

    General Anthony McAuliffe, acting commander of the 101st Airborne at Bastogne (Gen. Maxwell Taylor not being present; McAuliffe was in fact the CO of the 101st’s attached artillery) had previously been in Materiel Command. While there, he supervised the development of both the 2.36 Rocket Launcher, better known as the Bazooka, and the 1/4 Ton Utility Truck, 4 x 4, better known as the Jeep.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_McAuliffe

    His aide noted that “Nuts!” was a regular part of General McAuliffe’s vocabulary, as he did not use profanity. Apparently the only general officer in the U.S. Army in the ETO who didn’t.

    (Even Ike said “Damn” once in a while, and as for Patton, well, you know.)

    Will it take a Snow in August to stop the insanity..

    • Barbara Skolaut

      Pretty much. Luckily it looks like we’re getting global cooling.

    • David Gonzalez

      Depends upon your latitude in the southern hemisphere. In, say, southern Argentina and/or Chile, the “Rockies” (or however they refer to them) oughta be *loaded* with white stuff! Location, location, location! : )

      • Pamela

        I was thinking more of Pete Hamill’s book “A Snow in August”.
        Do we as a Nation need to bring forth a Golem to rid US (us) of those who that desire with all their being to subjugate, enslave and destroy?

        It is as if anyone who believes in God, Family and Freedom is being targeted. Are there yellow stars in our soon to be future?
        Will there be killing fields dotting the landscape?
