“I am not surprised by the news that the head of the Pentagon, Generalissimo ‘White Rage’ Milley conspired with Red China and fellow officers to block President Donald John Trump. Appalled, yes. Disgusted, yes. Hoping for a sentence of 20 years of hard labor, yes. But surprised? Nope because this is what Washington wanted all along. The American press called for a military coup months before President Trump was elected!”
You have to wonder: if Milley was willing to overstep his authority in January, what’s stopping him from believing that an 80-year-old Joe Biden might be incapacitated to the point of not being able to make clear headed decisions regarding actions in, say, Afghanistan?
Media pundits and Milley defenders aren’t looking at the long game. But they should. Milley does not become a patriot by suddenly aligning with the wild fantasies of #Resistance Twitter. If he’s willing to overstep his authority with imagined scenarios in the Trump era, how far would he be willing to go in the real world?
How much authority was Milley granted on President Biden’s catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal? How much say did Milley have in a drone strike that reportedly targeted and killed a US-aligned aide worker and seven children in Kabul?

Quote O’ The Day – The health stuff is just a masquerade.
Just in case you might not recall:
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad,
when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?...
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! …….”

I’m looking forward to the day he isn’t called “president” anymore.

“Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens.
And that’s where the circle closes.
Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period.
Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them.” — Charley Reese

“So. The first ISIS was Obama-ISIS. Now we have Biden-ISIS?”
Quote O’ The Day
Democrats are the modern Bourbons:
They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.
I changed this to Quote o’ The Day, because I found a better comment.
No, it is not “a historic humiliation of the United States.” It is a humiliation of Biden & Co.
The rest of us aren’t humiliated … we’re livid.
There’s a difference.
“Higher education in America increasingly resembles a sort of intellectual autoimmune disorder. Or perhaps what a foreign conqueror would impose on a defeated population in an effort to break its will.” —Prof Glenn Reynolds

“I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.” ― Joseph Stalin .

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.” –President Ronald Reagan.
I agree, there arecertain people that should not own firearms. My problem is with who decides who gets the power to decide who those people are. Pratt’s thought about no restrictions on what type of firearm is the same as mine. People should be held responsiblefor what they do not for what they own.
That’s the endgame. It’s obvious in the terminology. There can be no such thing as “gun violence,” because an inanimate object cannot be violent. It can be used in a violent manner but it cannot be violent in and of itself. Admit the use of the term and the discussion is lost.
Any restriction on firearm ownership that is based on the firearm and not the owner is unsupportable. I will grant that certain people should not be allowed to own firearms. I will not grant that those who may own them should be restricted in any way from owning whatever firearm they are inclined to own.—-Douglas Pratt
Quote O’ The Day
“If you look at every issue in this country, every issue I believe traces back to this fact: On the one hand, the elites in the ruling class in this country are robbing us blind, and on the other, if you dare complain about it, you are a bad person.” – J.D. VANCE
About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern.
But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter.
If all men are created equal, that is final.
If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final.
If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final.
No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.
If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people.
Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress.
They are reactionary.
Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers…………………
“We’re currently dealing with this generation’s version of the National Firearms Act (NFA), The Gun Control Act, the ’86 Amendments to the NFA, or 1994 Crime Bill. There are administrative attacks coming from the ATF with their shenanigans and we are dealing with the hostile to freedom Biden-Harris administration. The United States dodged a bullet by having the sunset provisions of the failed “Assault Weapons” ban. The anti freedom caucus is playing for keeps now and will do anything in their power to cripple the private citizen’s ability to keep and bear arms. There are friendly forces in the halls of congress, and we need to acknowledge that too.” – John Petrolino

“The virus was not the cause for global catastrophe. It was the response to the virus that crippled the global economy and our society. The disease was not nearly as damaging as the ‘cure’ for the disease.”-– Jordan Schachtel
