It was still the State of Barry Goldwater. Then we became the State of John McShame and we went downhill from there. Blasternaz Dec 13 2020 at 3:49 pm Yes, we did. Tried to impeach or recall that asshat twice that I know of and of course, the only thing he brought to his presidential run was Sarah Palin. He could of had a major stroke on Jan 23 (assuming he won) and it wouldn’t of bothered me a bit. Tucson has always been blue but between them and the Cali’s flooding in and Soro’s money…. Prep, lock and load. Sigh, … JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:52 am Many states were made blue but the counties and the real people are not. Maybe we can work out a mass prisoner swap; a lot of good Patriots behind those enemy lines that will be needed in a possible civil war. But maybe it doesn’t have to be a war…I would be very much in favor instead, of a “civil separation” if that could happen. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Dec 13 2020 at 1:07 am “Civil separation”. Nice wish. From your prayers to God’s ears. May He make it so. But from my humble, earthly, sinner’s point of view, ain’t gonna happen. Bren Dec 13 2020 at 7:17 am The last one began as a civil separation, but Mister Lincoln saw that notion off. If we want freedom, We’ll no doubt be forced to fight. Also, I’m ashamed that my state did not join. Wyoming is filled with conservatives, and went MAGA to the tune of 70%, but our politicians, while center-right, are machine center-right. As demonstrated by our carpet bagger congress critter. Malatrope Dec 13 2020 at 12:45 pm And, to my everlasting shame, my state, the great Free State of Idaho, did not join. JTC Dec 13 2020 at 2:21 pm Plenty of time to add red states and red parts of others; as the lines are drawn they will evolve in our favor. And when faced with massive force and resolve will the Blues accept a civil separation? Likely not as their agenda is not about their people except as foot soldiers, slaves, and eunuch enablers all of whom are expendable to them. Rather shocking, but really not, that they do not grok that it is they who are ultimately expendable and extinguishable. cb Dec 13 2020 at 2:00 am Was pondering ‘civil separation’ earlier. If nothing else it’d give time for opposing sides to come up with uniforms. Tends to get messy not knowing who is who… friendly fire and all. eon Dec 13 2020 at 7:51 am It will never work. The enlightened elite’, like the Roman patricians they so resemble, are obsessed with having it all. Like the “looters” in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, they will never let a single state, or even a single person, escape their power. They feel they have their bootheel on this nation’s throat, and they intend to either crush it into permanent, universal submission- or crush the life out of it. A lot of them dream of Utopia. Probably an equal number dream of watching the world burn. Both dream of standing atop the ruins, limned against the sunrise, as they proclaim their Brave New World. But to get the full effect they crave, they have to have the ruins. And all the survivors as their slaves. Those they allow to survive, that is. You are not dealing with reasonable or even halfway-rational people. They are the product of a system of academic radicalization, plus a culture of proclaiming themselves perfect, which has gone uncontrolled for far too long. We sowed the wind in letting it happen. Now we are reaping the whirlwind. clear ether eon chris muir Dec 13 2020 at 11:03 am No blackpilling here. JTC Dec 13 2020 at 11:51 am @ eon, powerful description of the dark forces of greed and lust… Was that a synopsis of 2020 or 1860? eon Dec 13 2020 at 11:54 am Actually, I was drawing a parallel between a 1957 novel and the rhetoric of the typical progressives on Twitter and etc. Their dreams sound exactly like the rantings and actions of Rand’s villains. The thing is, they’ve probably never read the novel. cheers eon JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:06 pm Why read it when they can write it…their own new, perhaps final, chapter. And of course the novel was itself a shadow commentary/warning of the methods employed by the First Rino. Henry Dec 13 2020 at 6:16 am I’ve sworn off the “retreat and regroup” strategy. Like Epador, I’ve used it, and it has a terrible failure rate. It’s like finding termites in a bedroom and dealing with it by closing off the room. Any territory you cede to the enemy is entirely lost to you, and they simply begin again to sap what remains of yours. Look at Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Virginia, and now Arizona. Sadly, there’s only one workable strategy for dealing with parasites. TBeholder Dec 13 2020 at 6:45 am Since it’s not «the refusal of suffrage to asses» time yet, you are noticeably ahead of the predicted curve. Of course, the problem with being ahead of the curve is — how to pull enough of the others there, before it becomes a moot point? Roland Deschain Dec 13 2020 at 1:34 pm I do not believe that a “civil” or peaceful separation from these communists can be peaceful. I pray to GOD that we can resolve our differences and come to some solution but the commies are already talking about retribution on Trump and all of his supporters. Nothing civil about them. JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:58 am And Mr. Muir that is one awesome graphic that needs to be a flag if it’s not already. JTC Dec 13 2020 at 1:07 am And just becoming aware that this being the Sunday episode, appropriately occupies the entire six-panel space. Paladin Dec 13 2020 at 9:33 am Yep… merchandising.

PaulS Dec 13 2020 at 10:49 am De oppresso liber Steveb919 Dec 13 2020 at 3:06 am Seems like I mentioned separation of states last week. Oh well. JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:16 pm Steve, where exactly was that discussion? Of course we’ve discussed it in some detail for the last year…but now, beyond the musings and rankings of we the oppressed, at least eighteen states, some of which are not contiguous, are giving serious official mention to separation by various means. I prefer civil, as stated above. But I am prepared and supplied for the alternative. Oh well JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:17 pm …musings and rantings… ottersmith Dec 13 2020 at 3:28 am I see what you did there. Well referenced, and well done. (Red ground, blue snake, white letters, civil flag? Red, white, and blue marpat, with RWB marpat snake, mil flag? ) Mike-SMO Dec 13 2020 at 3:45 am MO? Separation of states is intolerable. They have the cities which are historical artifacts of the 19th Century. The rail(container) yards, the jobs, the airfields, the residential areas, the rest stops, the truck stops, etc are all out in the surround, which is, for the most part, conservative, traditional “Red”. “Downtown” will be a clean and safe attraction in Las Vegas, or Six Flags. Now the cities are the dumping grounds for the corrupt and the non-productive, often burned out and looted by the “Democrats”. Separation means building walls and throwing occasional food packages from the tourist viewing points. There is no way that the Corruptocrats and Ghettocrats get the harbors and resources. Even in California, the Blues are concentrated in the wreckage. The beyond is Red farms and Marines. With ~20 states facing ~25 states, I didn’t expect “No Standing”. Maybe a lack of “Ripeness” since most of the GOP legislatures in the Four have not chosen Electors, or refused to do so, or did so and then were ignored by their Masters. The Consititution says “state v state” goes to SCOTUS. If SCOTUS refuses its duty and we are deprived of free and fair elections, that also abrogates the Constitution which mandates a Supreme Court. Think of the opportunities! The Supreme Court site would be a fine location for one of The Trump Enterprises new hotels, with indoor parking in the heavily remodeled “Hoover Hovel”. After 2024, of course. I am still curious about the evidence and the “foreign election interference” Executive Order that maybe in the works. The Executive Branch has its own powers, independent of the defunct SCOTUS. The rest of the Federal Court system is just a feeder for SCOTUS maintained only by law and not the Constitution. Let the Big Boys solve their own problems. Normal humans can’t afford the fare for those august halls. Think of all the cash we’d save on laundry costs for the black dresses alone. Being “abandoned” has its upsides. Henry Dec 13 2020 at 6:21 am “The Consititution says “state v state” goes to SCOTUS. If SCOTUS refuses its duty…” Goes to establishing the “long train of abuses and usurpations,” Your Honor. Badger52 Dec 13 2020 at 8:45 am Precisely. The Black Robed Druids have now signalled there is no CIVIL recourse or remedy to be found in that instance where a state and its people are wronged by another state. The plea will simply not be heard. Strike the word “civil” and proceed accordingly. MAJ Arkay Dec 13 2020 at 5:13 pm Excuse me? Kindly refrain from equating those nine robed cowards from Druids. My dogtags say my religion is “Ortho Druid.” The abbreviation seems to imply my religion was some kind of insecticide. In that case, we Druids would be inclined to use that insecticide against the pestilence that’s invaded our fair nation. Those nine robes are not occupied by actual Druids. pyrodice Dec 13 2020 at 5:20 pm It’s orthopedic, f you put your foot down. Bren Dec 14 2020 at 4:16 am Druid is a misnomer. Druids are the holy secrets the “keepers of the Druids” keep. Or so my grandma McDonnall told me as a lad. KenK Dec 13 2020 at 7:31 pm From http://www.amerika.org/politics/where-we-go-from-here/ First we should ask why the Court punted on the Texas suit. The answer is that SCOTUS wanted a different suit that was closer to Bush v. Gore, since it has fears of giving the states too much power over each other; this is nonsense, but the court did not want to be seen as politicized, especially with its new members appointed by Trump being under scrutiny. They got bullied, in other words. Texas obviously has an interest in the election being fair, since Texas is also ruled by the president, and if that president is chosen by fraudulent means, Texas is being dominated by other states, unfairly. However, the Court was not thinking about that, but how the decision could be expanded to become a state-versus-state version of the Fourteenth Amendment — you now see why this one has to be replaced by something clearer saying “be fair, taking into account the unequal status of all participants by nature of who they are” even though that would abolish Obergefell v. Hodges — where Texas says, basically, the some other state is not doing things to Texas standards, so they must adhere. That would come into conflict with some other amendments, so the Court had reason to doubt, and when it can avoid a complex matter, it does. It basically sent back a little note telling Trump how to refile his case so that it would not clash, eliminating objections from the Left; this is an exercise in compromise, but also in avoiding making overly-broad decisions which will be misapplied at lower levels. Summary: SCOTUS punted on a procedural matter, asking for the suit to be refiled. This is being done. My cynical side says that the Court wanted to keep Leftists from burning down America over the weekend, since lots of buildings will be empty. NotYetInACamp Dec 14 2020 at 12:17 am Supreme Court allowed legislative action by the Executive branch in most of these states. So have the separation of powers been abandoned. SC should use its authority now or soon. Or they will be treated as President Jackson treated and ignored them or more. The violation of the Constitutional rights of the voters of those states and the nation may just be remedied by the executive branch. All elections must now have votes cast on one day (Military and legitimately unable to attend for valid reasons to be worked out). ID required in all voting. (Signatures and witnesses for all absentee allowed). All ballots shall be counted by hand in front of all available party witnesses. All counting of ballots shall be videoed and possibly streamed. All ballots shall have a secure chain of custody, with various party representatives as witnesses and police, to the county election office where the counting will be repeated. All ballots will be secured with constant recording of their repository outside and in until a future time to be determined. Use appropriate federal forces and national guard as needed. The goal is transparency and truth. Follow the laws and follow the US Constitution when it is superior to laws. Get wonks and honest lawyers (or at least good ones) to advise as to the best course, but get to the goal of honest elections. Details can be worked out better than the statewide absentee ballot drops were worked out. Easy peasy. A transparent election. Start with the Georgia Senate runoffs. Then the US Supreme Court can render an opinion that won’t make them worry about themselves or their children and relatives We are still not completely cartel run. (There are many cartels.) Mo muss. No Fuss. Just an election run honestly. And no separation. (I can think how some will yell and demand some entitlement or the other.) interventor Dec 13 2020 at 8:01 pm I wouldn’t abandon the SCOTUS building. Fill it with competent conservatives, yes! DNC HQ would make a nice hotel site. Stan Dec 13 2020 at 7:27 am Yeah, where’s Missouri? We’re right in the middle of all this. Hardthought Dec 13 2020 at 7:35 am You forgot Missouri. We would have all of the Gulf State seaports plus energy production and most of the food. Should be fun! GWB Dec 13 2020 at 8:06 am While the enlightened elite are certainly trying to drive this train, don’t be fooled. The education system has already indoctrinated the vast majority of Americans – of all colors – into progressivism. It’s the electorate that’s powering this train, and they all believe a lot of things that they shouldn’t – even so-called conservatives. And it’s worse the younger they are. Even with a “civil separation” – or an un-civil one, for that matter – our remaining republic will be full of people who believe progressivism to some extent. It’s not that there are termites in the house. It’s that the owners of the house are keeping termites as pets. The only way to change the direction is to indoctrinate and evangelize the proper morals and civic thought that can restore self-government and the proper balance of individual-family-community-government. Browncoat Dec 13 2020 at 8:09 am Conservatives can survive quite easily without Progressives/Liberals. Not so the other way around… Sheriffs and militias… I like the sound of that.

The more the merrier… My Way or --> Dec 13 2020 at 8:48 am Strange days we’re in…. I used to take home any novel in my school library that was based in historical context. I once told my history teacher that I thought we were falling into the same disastrous decay that doomed the Roman Empire. She said she thought we were already there. That was so long ago it seems like yesterday now… and here we are…. but this march into -(whatever these morons think they want)- is faster. The Empire didn’t have instant communications like we do. Stalin at least waited until he knew for sure that Lenin was dead. Well, when you have two generations (not mine or yours) that are nothing but spoiled brats who think the world owes them a living but they can’t get jobs, and now we have a dictatorship started by sucking up to a bug you can’t even see, then you understand Hanlon’s Razor: “never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity”. E Hines Dec 13 2020 at 9:54 am Blue States can indeed hiss off. They can leave; I’ll hold the door. But this is my nation, and I refuse to abandon it. Full stop.

Ohio, Missouri, others joined since then! Richard Dec 13 2020 at 10:57 am You left Missouri (who joined the suit off the list) but added Alaska (who didn’t join) Don in AK Dec 13 2020 at 11:42 pm Richard, Alaska DID join. For some reason most outlets did not pick up on it. But our Governor had a press release detailing our reasons for joining and the importance of it. Kentuckysnapper Dec 13 2020 at 11:10 am Where the he11 is Kentucky? Is 2/3 red not good enough? Christopher Ryan Johns Dec 13 2020 at 10:16 pm AGREED Halley Dec 13 2020 at 11:12 am Blue Meanies have a final solution – yes, they crave their one-party totalitarian State, but the dark intent that drives them even more than that is to punish, steal from, and eventually kill the creators and makers, the productive and innovative, anyone who is proudly self-reliant and free. They would soon be invading the Red States to accomplish this goal. eon Dec 13 2020 at 11:59 am That was pretty much my point. Bullies will bully. It’s how they affirm themselves. And they can’t be “reasoned” out of it. People who believe that the world is a zero-sum game that they are determined to win do not believe in, or practice, “live and let live”. clear ether eon Kafiroon Dec 13 2020 at 12:23 pm https://youtu.be/1VR3Av9qfZc JTC Dec 13 2020 at 12:46 pm Nothing says the CCAR (Constitutional Confederacy of the American Republic) redraw the lines..Cali for instance is more than half red, give them the part that is not and add to their hive of villainy with the prisoner exchange I mentioned above, employ the methods of their beloved Fidel by emptying our midst of the thugs and educators and aliens that belong to them in exchange for the oppressed and trapped citizens that belong to us… It works for Korea, why not us? They are the Loko Noko’s and we are the South, then as now. But this time we are prepared to defend from incursion by civil and/or other means as needed. Man up boys and girls. Kafiroon Dec 13 2020 at 1:40 pm Kurt Schlichter’s novels were based pretty much on that concept and I believe that may have some basis to continue to live together on this continent without “Kill Them All and let God Sort Them Out”. NotYetInACamp Dec 13 2020 at 12:51 pm If we would have applied the law or US Constitution, over time, we would have had less non citizens in the nation, and a less Democrat votes. This invasion fostered in various ways has been a long term part asymmetric war against the USA by many parties. Reference the past 3 Chinese Defense Ministers, Asymmetric Warfare by two Chinese colonels, Democrat statements, statements by the past many Mexican Presidents and in their schools, the Muslim Brotherhood, Sharia practitioners, US university professors, most of the traditional EU leadership, Franklin School, and more, cb Dec 13 2020 at 1:26 pm Indeed, don’t forget China: Two Million CCP members & Spies Exposed and Doxed === https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3915026/posts Pamela Dec 13 2020 at 1:42 pm Chris~ Sweetie, you forgot this State. https://www.newcaliforniastate.com Halley Dec 13 2020 at 2:52 pm .. and we’re still not sure PDT didn’t even carry New York State. +7,000,000 millions votes wiped, switched or stolen is quite the heist..

Cali is the most prominent example but as I said there are many patriots trapped behind enemy lines; in some cases they can eliminate their oppressors and take back the reins of their state, but when that is not possible as in CA, NY, and others give them the spoils and we will take the good by micro-separation or relocation. Pamela Dec 13 2020 at 4:49 pm JTC~ Were my ancestors, who were here in California before it became a Republic and a State, alive today they would be having a necktie party after a speedy trial for the traitors to the State and the Nation.

Blackrifle081 Dec 13 2020 at 3:11 pm The New Republic should be run from Texas.

But then…then some hidden hand of logic and reason and hope and resolve takes over and writes those last three paragraphs for him.
