“Afghanistan Bananastan.” I don’t want to disturb the media’s unremitting focus on the latest Trump tweet, but it is time to consider machine-gun posts and Apache attack helicopter air patrols over the wall to protect the US from the Failed State directly to the south. Time for another Pershing expeditionary force? Overdue I’d say.

On Mexican State Collapse: a Guest Post by El Anti-Pozolero

You may have read the news just a few days back: the Mexican military captured not one but two of El Chapo’s sons in the heart of Culiacán, the Sinaloan capital. One son freed himself—which is to say his entourage and retainers at hand overpowered and killed the soldiers at hand—and then, in a decisive riposte, seized the entire city center of Culiacán to compel the liberation of his brother.

The forces that emerged were in the literal sense awesome and awful. Heavy weaponry that would be familiar on any Iraqi, Syrian, or Yemeni battlefield was brought to bear. More and worse: custom-built armored vehicles, designed and built to make a Sahel-warfare technical look like an amateur’s weekend kit job, were rolled out for their combat debut. Most critically, all this hardware was manned by men with qualities the Mexican Army largely lacks: training, tactical proficiency, and motivation.

Then the coup de grace: as the Chapo sons’ forces engaged in direct combat with their own national military, kill squads went into action across Culiacán, slaughtering the families of soldiers engaged in the streets.

Cowed and overmatched—most crucially in the moral arena—the hapless band of soldiers still holding the second son finally received word from Mexico City, direct from President AMLO himself: surrender. Surrender and release the prisoner.

[UPDATE: You might think nothing could be worse than ISIS. You’d be thinking wrong.

After about three months of training it was time for the “final exam,” which involved “cutting people up a special way,” Capache explains. Recruits took turns administering a specific, byzantine series of stabs and slashes to a live victim—usually a thief or petty criminal the cartel deemed deserving of such punishment. The first series of ordered knife cuts was meant to torture for information without killing. Then to strike fatal blows. And at last to cut up the body by hand for disposal. — In Mexico’s Drug Cartel Country, a Murderer Who Kills Murderers Tells His Story  Trust me, you don’t want to RTWT  ]

Okay Here’s the Plan

Trump’s lidless eyes never sleep. He is a 24/7 force of nature. No controversy is too trivial, too silly, too irrelevant to escape his Twitter commentary… Trump senses that the more he offends them, and the more they pronounce him a dunce, a nut, a boor, a criminal, an ogre, then they only reveal what many had suspected about them.Why Do They Hate Him So? – American Greatness

Trump’s going to force them to impeach him. That’s right. He’s going to back them into his corner and get them to, as we say in Communist Chinese Nikeland, “Just Do It.”

And then give them no choice but to pull the pin…


Now the Semi-Sane Left — along with their fully-fisted hand-puppets ( aka the Democrats) — are going to twist and dodge and delay and defenestrate and twerk and twist and gyrate like demented dachshunds on the floor of the House and in their little back-bedroom humpty-hump bordellos of sekreet meetings, to keep from actually “going full impeach…” but it will not avail them.

Trump is going to make them do it to it; to hit it and quit it. Trump is going to make them take their dog and phony show on the road and get down with their bad selves until they actually (No, really and for real.):
Hold.
An.
Impeachment.
Vote.
In.
The.
House.

You know, an Impeachment vote that has every single representative’s name attached to it. And if they are Democrat reps, even those in very unsafe and very marginal seats, they are still going to have to nail their name to this black hole sun of votes.

Result: Buh-bye to control of the House in 2020.

And when it comes to this result (which will happen to the Democrats like the force of gravity) all elected Democrats with more than three functioning neural networks know they will be sucked into that black hole of political oblivion and also know… There is nothing they can do to stop it.

If their bits aren’t bleached,
They must impeach.

What power compels them to commit this political seppuku? Donald Trump, in word, deed, rally, and tweet, is FORCING THEM TO DO IT. He knows what will happen to them if they impeach better than they do. And so he does not let up on them for a single semi-quaver of a news cycle.

He knows they will HAVE TO DO IT. He knows if he just keeps tweeting they will have to keep pecking at impeachment every day like the Drinking Bird bobbing over the poisoned chalice of despond.

Trump also knows the many hidden benefits of compelling the Democrats to impeach him. For example, impeachment voted in the House puts California in play. “In play” not because Trump can absolutely flip California, but because non-moonbat citizens of California would be so incensed by the Impeachment that the Democrats would be forced to defend California. Many other states and districts would be in the same situation going into 2020 following the abortive Impeachment.

This means that the enemy in 2020 — that thing in the Democrat skin-suit currently worn by the lizard left — has to defend everywhere while Trump’s forces allied with other American factions can attack where they please. Not only that, the coffers for the 2020 campaign will be swollen from the donations pouring in following the abortive impeachment. 2016 was done on a shoe-string. This coming campaign will be, in a word, loaded. Thank you Impeachers all.

The slaughtermeter, once Trump’s manipulation of his own impeachment is taken into account, currently stands at 250%.

Still, let’s not get cocky.

Locked? Loaded? Good.

[UPDATE: I love it when Rush Limbaugh agrees with me:

“Trump’s got them taking positions simply because they hate him that are positions they’ve never taken before. It’s gotta have some of their serious supporters scratching their heads out there. “Do we really want to vote for somebody that wants to send troops all over the world here? This is not what we thought we were about.” So all I am saying is that I think this impeachment thing is actually a gigantic failure.” Pelosi’s Nixon Gambit – The Rush Limbaugh Show]

Something Wonderful: “Unforgettable” The Cole Duet

The backstory:

In 1991, after Elvis Presley’s musical director Joe Guercio had the idea, Cole’s original 1951 recording of the song was edited and remixed to create a duet with his daughter, Natalie, which won three awards at the Grammy Awards of 1992: Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance.

Overdue: The Beginning of the End of “Safe Spaces”


davidthompson: Preening Interruptus

Acts of planned and gratuitous aggression, including narcissistic aggression — which is what these “protests” are – should be treated accordingly. It’s important that these cossetted pinheads, so gorged on their own sense of entitlement, learn to fear those on whom they recreationally impose themselves. Their expectations of impunity should be shattered. Along with the conceit that the way to make people sympathetic with your cause, whatever it may be this week, is to screw them over – because you can – and then applaud yourself for doing so.

If the police aren’t doing anything to remedy the situation, then the citizens can and will. There is so little sympathy for these people, I can see this happening more and more.

Looking forward to it.

{UPDATE} Earlier this week some morons climbed ontop of trains in the London Tube for their “protest” by stopping people on their way to work. Since the police do nothing, a few of the lads on their way to the job climbed on top of the trains with them and pushed them off into the crowd below where, I hope, they were tuned up to hospital level. Here’s the reaction when it was shown on the news in London later.

[UPDATE 2 VIA HARRY] This is a start too. Get back to me when the schmuck with the bullhorn is taken down to the nearest beach and buried up to his neck just below high water mark.

A CALL TO ACTION: “Stand” – We Will Remember The 129 Republicans Who Refused to Stand With President Trump… Posted on October 16, 2019 AT THE LAST REFUGE / CONSERVATIVEA TREEHOUSE by sundance

When we see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when we see that in order to invoke our right to due process, we need to obtain permission from those who rebuke the constitution; when we see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when we see that representatives get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and our representatives don’t protect us against them but protect them against us; when we see corruption holding influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified; we may well know that our freedom  is soon to perish….

The Conservative Treehouse is often criticized for being too accurate outlining the schemes, and not putting enough emphasis on what actions can be done -by ordinary Americans- to counteract the duplicity and corruption amid DC politicians. Well, last month we outlined exactly what YOU can do when we wrote “STAND“.

It is the responsibility of each of us to stand, defiantly if needed, and support a President who is waging a battle against multiple adversaries on our behalf. “Stand” means to be visible. “Stand” means let your voice be heard. “Stand” means telling your republican representatives what your expectations are. They represent us; WE are the people.

Why is this important? Well, today 129 Republican House members spat upon our President as he works tirelessly to defend our interests and put America First. 129 Republican House representatives voted against the one Republican who is doing everything he possibly can to fulfill the expectations of those who elected him to office.

129 back-stabbing cowards, voted to condemn President Trump for withdrawing the U.S. military from Syria; the same military engagement those same spineless cowards in the House would not vote to authorize. Those 129 Republicans should be shamed.

It is important to note the entire Republican leadership in the House voted against President Trump. “The Entire Republican Leadership” team. All.of.them…. While the Democrats are trying to impeach him. Think about it.

Do not look away from the names. You can find the ROLL CALL VOTE HERE.

Absorb the anger as fuel to empower you to contact them and let your voice be heard. It might be difficult to accept that: Doug Collins, Devin Nunes, Liz Cheney, Kevin McCarthy, Mike McCaul, John Ratcliffe, Steve Scalise, and Lee Zeldin all voted to spit in the face of our president…. BUT THEY DID. So what are you going to do about it?

There were decent Republicans who stood with our president. Sixty of them to be exact. Including Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Louie Gohmert, Andy Biggs and fifty-six more who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with patriots and with our President. They too should be contacted with words of appreciation and praise.

(202) 225 – 7000 [Specific Extensions Here]

However, the 129 scheming, back-stabbing cowards who call themselves representatives and yet voted against the will of We The People who elected President Trump… well, those lying war-mongering creatures of the deep swamp, they should hear our voices loudest.

Stand“?

Your decision.

As we bear witness, anyone trying to convince us this entire assembly of our union is headed in the right direction, well, they might want to revisit their proximity to the 2020 election ballpark. Because they’re not just out of the city – they’re also out of the same state the election ballpark is located in….. Then again, the media know that.

David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for democrats, liberals, progressives et al to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending ‘not to know’ there is no guilt, no actual connection to conscience. Denial of truth allows easier trespass.

This hate-filled Democrat ideology relies on our willingness to accept their lies, falsehoods, and scripted presentations; and then demands we grant benefit amid their seeds of doubt.

There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior, it’s called Cold Anger.

Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed when we meet. You cannot poll or measure it; specifically, because most who carry it avoid discussion… And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

We watched the passage of Obamacare at 1:38 am on the day before Christmas Eve in 2009. We watched the Senate, then the House attempt passing Amnesty in 2014. We know exactly how it passed, and we know exactly why it passed. We don’t need to stand around talking about it….

We know what lies hidden behind “cloture” and the UniParty schemes.

We watched the 2009 $900+ billion Stimulus Bill being spent each year, every year, for seven consecutive years. Omnibus, Porkulous, QE1, QE2, Bailouts, Crony-Capitalism. We know exactly how this works, and we know exactly why this ruse is maintained. We don’t need to stand around talking about it…. We’re beyond talking.

We accept that the entire Senate voted to block President Trump’s ability to use recess appointments in 2017, and 2018, and 2019. Every.Single.Democrat.And.Republican.

Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.

We’ve waited each year, every year, for ten years, to see a federal budget, only to be given another Omnibus spending bill by “CONservative” politicians.

We’ve watched the ridiculing of cops, the riots, and the lack of support for laws, or their enforcement. We’ve been absorbing all that. We’ve been exposed to violence upon us by paid operatives of the organized DNC machine. We know; the media trying to hide it doesn’t change our level of information.

Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

We watched in 2012 as the Democrat party thrice denied God during their convention. The doors to evil enterprise opened by official proclamation and request.

Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob. Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the riot goer. Mannerly.

We’ve watched our borders being intentionally unsecured.

We’ve watched Islamic Terrorists slaughter Americans as our politicians proclaim their uncertainty of motive. We know exactly who they are, and why they are doing it. We do not need to stand around discussing it…. we’re clear-eyed.

Cold Anger evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic and more purposeful. Eric Cantor’s defeat, Matt Bevin’s victory, Brexit, Donald Trump’s highest vote tally in the history of presidential primaries or President Trump’s victory might aide your understanding.

Cold Anger does not gloat; it absorbs consistent vilification and ridicule as fuel. This sensibility does not want to exist, it is forced to exist in otherwise unwilling hosts – we also refuse to be destabilized by it.

Transgender bathrooms are more important than border security.

Illicit trade schemes, employment and the standard of living in Vietnam and Southeast Asia are more important to Wall Street and DC lobbyists than the financial security of Youngstown Ohio.

We get it. We understand. We didn’t create that reality, we are simply responding to it.

The intelligence apparatus of our nation was weaponized against our candidate by those who controlled the levers of government. Now, with sanctimonious declarations they dismiss accountability.

Deliberate intent and prudence ensure we avoid failure. The course is thoughtful vigilance; it is a strategy devoid of emotion. The media can call us anything they want, it really doesn’t matter…. we’re far beyond the place where labels matter.

Foolishness and betrayal of our nation have served to reveal dangers within our present condition. Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise. We know exactly who Donald Trump is, and we also know what he is not. He is exactly what we need at this moment. He is a necessary glorious bastard.

He is our weapon.

Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.

When the well attired leave the checkout line carrying steaks and shrimp using an EBT card, the door is still held open; yet notations necessarily embed.

When the U.S. flags lay gleefully undefended, they do not lay unnoticed. When the stars and stripes are controversial, yet a foreign flag is honored – we are paying attention.

When millionaire football players kneel down rather than honor our fallen soldiers and stand proud of our country, we see that. Check the NFL TV ratings – take note…

Not Soon But Sooner Than You Think

The Colonel by Carolyn Forche

“What you have heard is true. I was at his house. His wife carried a tray of coffee and sugar. His daughter filed her nails, his son went out for the night. There were daily papers, pet dogs, a pistol on the cushion beside him. The moon swung bare on its black cord over the house. On the television was a cop show. It was in English.

“Broken bottles were embedded in the walls around the house to scoop the kneecaps from a man’s legs or cut his hands to lace. On the windows there were gratings like those in liquor stores. We had dinner, rack of lamb, good wine, a gold bell was on the table for calling the maid.

“The maid brought green mangoes, salt, a type of bread. I was asked how I enjoyed the country. There was a brief commercial in Spanish. His wife took everything away. There was some talk then of how difficult it had become to govern. The parrot said hello on the terrace. The colonel told it to shut up, and pushed himself from the table.

“My friend said to me with his eyes: say nothing. The colonel returned with a sack used to bring groceries home. He spilled many human ears on the table. They were like dried peach halves. There is no other way to say this.

“He took one of them in his hands, shook it in our faces, dropped it into a water glass. It came alive there. ‘I am tired of fooling around,’ he said. ‘As for the rights of anyone, tell your people they can go fuck themselves.’

“He swept the ears to the floor with his arm and held the last of his wine in the air. ‘Something for your poetry, no?’  he said. Some of the ears on the floor caught this scrap of his voice. Some of the ears on the floor were pressed to the ground.”
