A 2×4 to the teeth is the fact during his last days in office Obama did everything possible to undermine the U.S. economy. The regulations etc.
it was a conjecture of mine the democrats would import ISIS fighters to support their coup. Now they’re engaged in a extreme immigration battle to get these people in before the door closes.
President Trump has moved into his winter White House in Florida. It was reported Melania felt unsafe in the Capitol.
President trump has been engaging generals x y and z in direct conversation at U.S. Central Command in Tampa.
There are leaks in the White House and state dept. from moles, or spy’s. Security offline.
The democrats are using obstructionist tactics to delay appointments as long as possible.
The left wing newspapers NY times Washington post and CNN msnbc are attacking President Trump using propaganda and bizarre logic, every chance they get.
Half the country has declared itself a sanctuary in bits and pieces along the east & west coast in defiance of the U.S. Government.
America First vs A socialist spiral into the ground at 600mph. People voted and elected Trump. The rest of those poor fools out there who couldn’t see the difference deserve an economic collapse and euthanasia. Sorry no service today. Your country has been canceled.February 7, 2017 at 5:11 pm #51183
And people wonder why I just bought an upgraded ballistic helmet…..

New level llla for me. I just bought a Romanian tt33 as a backup. Maybe I’ll get a black upgrade helmet, Spraypaint to white for Bradyday.February 7, 2017 at 8:35 pm #51186
I’ll stick to living in a place that even the goat humpers avoid.
Anyone notice that the stuff is slowing down, sure the idiot celebrities are flapping their gums, but even Pelosi pointed out that Trump can’t be impeached because people don’t like him.
The bad guys have guns?
The bad guys have always had guns.
And bluntly, I’m no more concerned about the New Black Panthers and neo-anarchists than I was yesterday or last year, or my great grandparents were concerned about Dillinger or Bonnie & Clyde.
Civil war? Not even in my top twenty concerns.
Every twenty minutes there’s a new crisis. I’m just not going to worry about the crisis of the day when I need to be concerned with long term unemployment, injuries, etc.
Because if I can weather six months out of work, protesters shutting down “X” for a week means little more than an inconvenience.
Much depends on your attitude.
We were discussing this at work this morning.
A coworker had put the “what doesn’t kill you” quote up.
I corrected her.
“What doesn’t kill me, will soon be duct taped in the corner, bleeding profusely, and whimpering for its mommy”.

I get what you are saying. What I have spent is hopefully a total waste of money. In the event that it isn’t, I will be fairly well geared up.
Do I think that there really will be another civil war in the US? No.
Are we one of the few countries that has not had major bloodshed on our shores due to war in the last 100 years? Yes.
Are the arsehats getting worse where I live and is the media ignoring it more often than not? Yes
Would I rather spend a couple grand on stuff that I hope to never use as opposed to needing it and not having it? Yes
Do I hope to be able to move out and away like you have in the relative near future, but can I do that now? No
People’s preparedness is 100% relative to their bank account and spouse’s understanding, imo.

Did a mob at Berkley take possession of the campus while the security and cops hid? Yes
A mob (3 dozen or more) of “tax the rich” protestors forced their way into a Nys legislative budget hearing yesterday. They were not arrested.
Yesterday I discovered a security guard at the local Sherriffs dept. I was registering my pistol. The guard wanted my license just to go thru a locked door and I was scanned for weapons. Behind that door is a secretary and half a dozen cops with weapons. Never saw that before.
They have a high security communications system operating now. Local cops bought an interceptor patrol vehicle. 160 mph?
A lot of Obamacare people here going to lose their insurance here. Good riddance to them.
This is not a big place but it is connected very much to a bunch of upstate cities and Nyc.
Its better to be overprepped than have money. We gave up on our whole family liberal and republican because of their normalcy attitudes. We are no more normal than people were before the civil war or ww2. The changes are happening so fast now we’re all being dragged along.
So some days I feel like a stranger in a strange land. Like I need a security clearance just to live here.
Do I think “they” are preparing for war. Civil war and/or world war? In dubitably. Without doubt.February 9, 2017 at 4:47 am #51198
Take heart, folks. There may be more going on behind the scenes than the media/press will EVER want us to know (that certainly includes Fox News). I just received the following from a source that virtually guarantees its legitimacy. Talk about wanting to stand up and cheer, right here in front of my computer!
I’ve very slightly changed (and/or removed) a few insignificant details that COULD be potentially identifying. I would wish no harm to the person who wrote this to his military academy grad relative. I learned through years of government service that they will do all they can to identify individuals that express “inappropriate” thoughts, and start narrowing down, based on where a person works, certain identifiable demographic detail pieces, etc. The original version of this went around a closed group of trustworthy people, but leaked out from some member of that group, and is at least doing a mini-viral right now, apparently. I’m happy to see it, but don’t want to contribute to any source identification. Just read it as authentic, and for what it is really all about – not the details of who/where it came from. There may be hope yet!
From a good friend and classmate…
(I hope this relief extends to all the operating forces, too.)
Most of you know that xxx works in a leadership position within US Special Operations [section deleted] at the Pentagon. I spoke with him last night to get his view of how the first week of the Trump administration was perceived there. It was a short conversation but very informative.
He said the difference is nothing short of amazing. It is almost as though you can feel it in the air, in the pace of people strides, in the expressions on their faces. But beyond that, the change in process has been immediate. Within 48 hours several action orders that had been languishing for up to six months between State, NSC, and the White House, were approved and executed. Over the last 8 years ( xxx has been there for [considerably longer]) and particularly, the last 3 to 4, the atmosphere has been stifling. Every little thing had to be vetted by dozens of 30-year old State Department lawyers (with no military experience) before it even got up the chain, effectively neutering the senior officers and reducing effectiveness to near zero.
This past week, xxx took something to General Dunford, our Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and within minutes it was approved by the SecDef, General Mattis (both Marines, by the way) and green lighted.
There is new energy flowing through the whole building. There is a new sense of purpose, a new resolve that is palpable. A cloud has been lifted.
Say what you will about our new president, and there certainly is a lot ( pro and con) that could be and is being said, the folks at the pentagon are walking with a new skip in their step.
Hat tip to Jackie Gleason: “How sweet it is!” Things are happening at the top and on down the chain that the media people are helping to keep hidden, portraying a totally different sense in Washington, and working to reduce the hope of the American people. No, I am not breathing a sigh of relief and assuming that now all is well. Far from it. Trump himself could blow it all, and if he doesn’t, there are far too many on both sides of the congressional aisle willing to do him in. But that there is new motivation and hope among our military is a great building block for hope (and maybe real change). Maybe, JUST maybe, full-on civil war might be averted (or at least delayed – giving us more prep time, not time to relax and rest).

How sweet it is! Sessions confirmed. Mass arrests of criminal illegals to begin immediately. The disgraceful era of liberal judges protecting violent felons and releasing them back onto the streets to commit more crimes is over.
The deplorable state is rising.February 9, 2017 at 4:25 pm #51204
I wonder if I could get a taxidermist to work on any liberals I bag ? Just a head trophy mount , not full body .February 9, 2017 at 6:44 pm #51210
Very interesting read. Too many have underestimated the resolve of the radicals/anarchists on the left. Granted they have been given free rein to do as they will without consequence for quite a while, but it is an open question whether Trump will be able to change that. A good test will be whether any of the rioters arrested on inauguration day will go to jail. My guess is that none of them will.
None of us can know for sure where this is all headed, but the far left is ratcheting up this steadily.February 10, 2017 at 12:23 pm #51222
I think this is a time to find out not what the resolve of the left is, but the resolve and sand of the conservatives.
Are we willing to sit back on our heels and watch all that has happened come to naught?
Are we willing to stand up and make them earn every penny, every inch? Or are we going to stand and deliver?
I for one had an attitude adjustment back in September, it continued through until Christmas.
Long story short, my easy and laid back attitude took a hit and I had to really look at what I believed in, and what I was capable of/would do.
The left/criminals want to ramp up their attacks and activities? Great, that makes it easier to identify them and take care of them.
They want to hurt me and mine (this includes members of my former profession), my response will be nothing short of epic. I am done with the bullspit and molly-coddling, two simple words exemplify my attitude and future actions:
No Quarter.February 10, 2017 at 2:48 pm #51226
I would think that any Civil War scenario today would have to be figurative, as the disparity of arms between the establishment and the anti-establishment would pretty much rule out any literal domestic conflict in a fairly short timeline. This isn’t like 1865, where any local foundry could shuck out half a dozen cannon and mortar in a week. 100 million people with guns cannot stand against modern mechanized armor.
So what we are really left with is a battle of words, people will scream and chant and wave their signs, but as we have already witnessed in DC with the rioting there, those who resort to violence will be dealt with post haste. I think they arrested over 200 of them, for busting windows and setting a limo on fire and going fisticuffs with a few cops. Despite the volume of the protests, the reactions was relatively mild. I guess if this is civil war, it will be a dud. Given the fact that the vast majority of the LE and military community are enamoured with this president, those who would likely attempt more violent means of disruption would face some stiff and insurmountable resistance, and would become good examples of the don’t let this happen to you crowd. Sure, the MSM won’t likely report on it without a definite slant against the administration, but it doesn’t sound like DT cares much what they think anyways, and neither do most of the people working for him.
My suggestion would be to not engage those who lost and didn’t get their way and are now whining and throwing a tantrum. They will lash out at anyone that opposes them, and besides, why give them any greater voice? We won, we are going to get our way, and there’s nothing more they can do about it that we don’t allow. Let them make their noise and hold up their signs, they aren’t going to convince us we were wrong, and if they try to take it to a physical confrontation they are only going to experience yet more pain, and I don’t have to do anything but let the people in power deal with them. But you will see some stupid people try to engage them anyways in poorly chosen venues, and then they get beaten and on the news. Best not to challenge these people and end up with a bullseye on your back. Just go on with your life and if we just ignore them and continue on with what we are doing they will eventually give up and go home. Be ready, but don’t go out of your way to engage them, because none of them will listen at this point. We know what is right and we have the power now to make it happen, if we tune out the noise. Plus, don’t forget that many of these screamers and defilers are being paid to do a job. I liken it to walking through the mall where all the peddlers are trying to engage me to buy their perfume, lotion, cellphone, etc. If I just keep walking, I don’t end up wasting time nor money. My reason to be at the mall has nothing to do with them.
Observe, learn, prepare, plan, and act. I watched a video on the protests going on in Portland Oregon, where the protesters stopped traffic at an intersection and frustrated commuters were engaging them to no effect. Then the riot police showed up and the protesters scattered like cockroaches when the light comes on, except for one who didn’t move quick enough and got stomped in front of a cheering crowd. After that, the protesters just became noisemakers while everyone went about their business. They are paid to protest, and we pay others to keep them in line. Not our job. They can break the law at our inconvenience, but they end up bleeding and out of breath if they persist. If they cross the line too far, they will end up a statistic in a self defense report. Nothing new about that.February 10, 2017 at 9:40 pm #51230
benjammin, On your statement: (I would think that any Civil War scenario today would have to be figurative, as the disparity of arms between the establishment and the anti-establishment would pretty much rule out any literal domestic conflict in a fairly short timeline. This isn’t like 1865, where any local foundry could shuck out half a dozen cannon and mortar in a week. 100 million people with guns cannot stand against modern mechanized armor. )
Well if that were true then how come we have NOT won many of the wars with much less then 1 million armed like Afghanistan, and even Vietnam. We are talking about 100 million with over 500 million guns! it will talk 20 years for them to try to win and even then with what army? The army is made up of the same people. Will the army kill there own families, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers? Many will turn on them. I do not think the government can win!
I do not agree with you on this. The liberals are now radical communist that will not give up. They will go on till they win back power or get confronted by the other side with the truth every time they lie. Understand that they have been lying throw the news media, president, stars, and all the left wing politicians for eight years so they will not stop. This is our time to stand up with the truth and not let them lie to us anymore.February 11, 2017 at 2:47 am #51231
Well, perhaps, except that Afghanistan (and every other conflict our military has engaged in recently) was a political conflict with a limited objective and the rules of engagement were not set for total victory. Domestic civil conflict can only escalate so far because insurrectionists simply cannot arm themselves to a combat level sufficient to compete with US armed forces. A definite contrast in the two paradigms.
Also, it has been fairly indicative that leftist protestors don’t tolerate armed confrontation well. They tend to avoid direct contact with armed security. Those that don’t usually get the bum’s rush to jail as they lack experience and the will to stand and take a beating. Even so, a prudent conservative will not go looking to start an argument with them, as just like all cowards, they will strike if they detect weakness.
Ever notice how those on the losing end of an argument that can’t accept they are wrong simply get louder to try to assert their position? As if yelling will change the truth. The thing is, even with the media and politicians on their side, the average joe already knows the truth. That’s why they aren’t gaining any traction.
Regardless, once I have established my argument is valid, the debate is over for me. If they can’t refute my point, then I won’t pay attention to their noise. It’s a waste of my time. If they want to get nasty about it, they can deal with the law, and if they make it personal, I will break their hearts. But I won’t stay engaged otherwise.
