Editor’s Comment: In this unusual move, higher orders are forcing the highest ranking military officer over Washington, D.C. at exactly 12:01 am on the day of the inauguration. The officer, Maj. Gen. Schwartz was not given a reason, and one can only wonder whether or not it signals a potential coup or threat to the incoming administration.

Will there be a peaceful transition? What happens if martial law is declared due to riots at the inauguration, or an assassination attempt is made. There is no predicting what may happen, or what kind of danger this may mean for President-elect Trump, but his open conflict with the intelligence community and the ranking establishment figures in Washington the media present many flash points. Is it JFK all over again?

Though hopefully nothing at all will happen, this odd procedural move opens up a vulnerability at the swearing in, and raises difficult questions about who is loyal to whom, and who holds the real seat of power over this nation and its affairs. Stay vigilant, these may be dark times ahead.

D.C. National Guard Chief Fired Days Before Trump Inauguration: “The Timing Is Extremely Unusual”

by Tyler Durden

“It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” rages D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) after Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz, who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration, has been ordered removed from command effective Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.

As The Washington Post reports, Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the midst of the presidential ceremony, classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.

“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post.

During the inauguration, Schwartz would command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration.

“My troops will be on the street,” Schwartz, who turned 65 in October, said, “I’ll see them off but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said that he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.”

Schwartz, who was appointed to head the guard by President George W. Bush in 2008, maintained the position through President Obama’s two terms. He said his orders came from the Pentagon but that he doesn’t know who made the decision.

D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) blasted the decision to remove Schwartz, especially on Inauguration Day.

“It doesn’t make sense to can the general in the middle of an active deployment,” Mendelson said. He added that Schwartz’s sudden departure would be a long-term loss for the District. “He’s been really very good at working with the community and my impression was that he was good for the Guard.”

Unlike in states, where the governor appoints the National Guard commander, in the District that duty falls to the president.

Schwartz said that he has not been told why he was asked to step down. “I’m a soldier,” he said, noting that he was following orders and has no regrets. “I’m a presidential appointee, therefore the president has the power to remove me.”

Is this just another part of Obama’s “smooth” transition? Or is something even more sinister at work here, since we already know that anti-Trump activists are planning “the biggest protest in US history” on the day of the inauguration?

*  *  *

As we noted previously, radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history.  Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal.  Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”.  My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated.  The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement.

In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times

Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: “No!”

“Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others.

The ad pointed people to refusefascism.org, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or not

Trump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself. He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America!

If you go to refusefascism.org, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th.  They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th.

Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20.  Of course that is short for “Disrupt January 20th”.  If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled.

According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation’s capital.  And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to “shut down the Inauguration”

“We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.”

If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented.

And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either…

Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has no publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct actions are encouraged.

“I can’t comment on specific stuff we’re doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect,” he says. “‘Have fun!’ I say.”

After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously.

Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won.  But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before.

And these protests are not going to end on January 20th.  In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights.  Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of “100 days of resistance” against Trump’s presidency…

Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency.

In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration.

“It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control.  If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his “police state tactics”.  And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly.

Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home.  Violent protests, blockades and riots aren’t going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.

    I’m not exaggerating

    A God of Chaos called Kek has been unleashed

    Hope you all stocked up over the years

    Praise Kek and good luck

      Awww man. I was hoping for a breather when Obama promised a smooth transition.

      Staying frosty all the time is tiring.

        Good luck FS

        Only if he stays in office.


      • HMULLER says:

        When I see the reaction to Trump by the mainstream media and official Washington I’m reminded of how demons reacted to the approach of Jesus Christ. I see hatred, fear, anger, an almost incoherent spewing of bile and curses.

        One collegiate snowflake named Jake Biddle even told Fox News Tucker Carlson that he advocates “projectile vomiting” to protest against Trump. (Perhaps, a tribute to Linda Blair in “The Exorcist”?)

        Of course, I’m not putting Trump in a class with J.C., I’m pointing out that when demons are confronted with a loss of power they react the same way, be it 2017 or 33 AD. Thanks to the email releases, we are beginning to see the strands connecting top Washington elitists (both Democrat and Republican) to satanic cults focused on child molesting and murder. The Podesta brothers and top people in the Hilary campaign are clearly involved in evil so enormous, few decent humans can wrap their minds around it.

        Trump is not battling against enemies of only flesh and blood. May the blood of the innocent, murdered children crying from the ground be answered by God’s righteous judgment. May Trump have the courage to exterminate these evil, globalist vermin!

            Forget most of this nonsense, it is just filler to distract you. What everybody needs to do is get out of the Cities and Get working on your Rural Homestead off the Grid.

            Found this good site packed with info to set up a homestead. http://newlifeonahomestead.com/

            And how to start homesteading when you are flat broke.

            Lots of good tips, just get creative.

            Your goals needs to be, towards being self sufficient in every way. Snowflakes need not apply.

            Yesterday out at my BOL, I fired up the smoker grill 3pm, and out of nowhere, a doe can walking up to me about 15 yards and just ignored me, and it stopped and was foraging on some leaves. It was not threatened by me, as if I was just some other animal standing at the grill. Too funny, got a few Pics.. Anyway, I finished smoking BBQ Raccoon that I caught in a live trap. Took me 2 hours to butcher it, and skin the hide. Salted the hyde down for more fleshing later. The Coon I quartered up and put in some pans with vegies, onions, potatoes, and sealed tight with tinfoil. Cooked 2 hours at 350, where a good meat thermometer to hit at least 160 degs+, then deboned the meat, and put it in the fridge, the next day, I chopped it up really good, because raccoon is a little tougher meat to chew unchopped, and I then added my BBQ recipe, then smoked the meat in a pan uncovered in juices for 3 hours, at about 160 degs. Had a few friends over last night for BB Sandwiches, toasted the French buns on the grill, and it turned out amazing, delicious. Lots of compliments.

            Everybody needs to get out there and practice really living off the land and preparing food before SHTF. Every new thing you do now, is another arrow in your quiver for later when in survival mode.

            Got your live traps? Got your charcoal, hickory, propane, grill, cleaning station, sharp knives, knife sharpener? Pans to cook it all in? You either have it or you don’t. You will either eat or you won’t.

              Yep just as I said, this is Filer/ FAKE NEWS, JUST HEARD THAT THIS DC NATIONAL GUARD CHIEF, IS QUITTING AND THAT IS HIS LAST DAY ON THE JOB, AND AT NOON TIME, HE RESIGNED. Not pulled off the job, that’s BS Fake News.


    • This Kek is a mere nothing compared to the only One True God and Jesus.

    • Archivist says:

      Is this “Kek” a 4chan creation?

      • twrh111 says:

        is it happy or merry kwanzaa ?

      • 2isone says:

        Kek is a real, oldtime, minor Egyptian deity that has been used as a meme pre election. There is a hieroglyph associated with it that suggests a computer keyboard… also a relationship to frogs… Pepe the frog meme is part of this soup that people are calling “meme magic”. It’s a new agey version of religion for the non-religious. From a Christian point of view, you could say that praising Kek is an invocation to demonic forces, so in reality, Kek is not a joke when it comes to the spirit of the times.

    • anon; says:

      and 4chan for resurrection of the kek meme

    Rats! The forecast for DC says 60 degrees on January 20. I was hoping for very cold weather. But on the bright side, maybe some of the “snowflakes” will melt.

  3. Captain Caveman says:

    To heck with Kek!

  4. Philosopher says:

    The timing is very precise. 12:01 p.m. Isn’t that the time that President Trump will be sworn in?

    • smokey says:

      The President is scheduled to be sworn in at 12:00 PM, although that may be delayed for one reason or the other. He does not become President at 12:00 PM, he must first be sworn in. At that time, he becomes President, so the 12:01 PM is written to coincide with the ‘official’ end of the Obama presidency.

      Legally, Trump cannot fire anyone until he is sworn in, either the transition team indicated they would not seek the General’s retention, and the Pentagon cut the order, or the Pentagon acted under orders from President Obama, who can fire and replace General Schwartz at will.

      My guess is that the transition team indicated General Schwartz would not be retained, and the Obama administration ordered him to retire at 12:01 PM in order to muddy up the Chain of Command on Inauguration Day when rioting may occur, thus making Trump look bad or overreact.

      • Cancel Celebrations says:

        President Trump should AVOID ALL Ceremonies, Parades, Balls, etc.
        My advice: Schedule celebrations, make the plans publicly. But do NOT show up. “Don’t go to your own party.” Divert.

        Trump should get sworn in, Take office. Then head out of Washington DC ASAP to safety. Put his own job selections in office IMMEDIATELY.
        No pomp. No fanfare. No celebration.
        Just get to work Cleaning out the Obama Communist Bilderberg UN NWO puppets. Protect America from Deep State.

        President Trump should remove himself from where ever he is expected to be.
        Be unpredictable. Keep Safe as priority over fluff.

        REMOVE ALL OPPORTUNITY FOR NWO MISCHIEF and Coup attempts by US Intelligence Communities, Bilderberg puppets, NWO Demon worshippers.

        You must acknowledge your enemy. The Enemy is Satanic Bilderberg NWO UN.
        Jesus Christ is your only real protection.

        You should Learn what they are building for you:

  7. That list of protesters is a who’s who of Marxist Communists. If I have to choose between Communism and Fascism, I’ll go with Fascism. After all, every educated person knows that Communists killed many many many more people than Hitler is alleged to have killed.

    Are we back in the Weimar Republic? It sure seems like déjà vu.


    • Katie says:

      This is exactly what they want . They want the 75% that would not vote for either of their clowns to choose a side. They are not concerned about the idiots that voted, they’ve always had them. They are concerned about the 75% because we aren’t playing their bs games anymore by voting which only legitimizing this criminal occupational force tyrannizing we American Nationals. My advice to you and all is DON’T choose communism or fascism, hell we own the joint, it belongs to every American National. All the land, the resources, the roads, the buildings, etc.. Why settle for scraps when you are a king/queen, the sovereign power of this country, they, criminals pretending to be your representatives. The commies and the fascists want to slaughter one another let em, sit back, and direct them into one anothers camp. I will not be ruled over by any collective, and any collective that has and or would is the enemy. We are freemen on par with the crown heads of Europe, and the powers that be KNOW this. Our law is our Bill of Rights, the procedures to prosecute our lives amongst fellow American Nationals is laid out therein. We were NEVER to be ruled over by ANY fed. or state entity. Remember, WE the people are the govt. Anyway, DON’T pick a side, unless you enjoy communist or fascist tyrants. Check out the radio broadcast http://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/

    • Anonymous5 says:

      There is no practical difference between communism and fascism. Both are totalitarian in nature. Neither one is an option. If given the choice between the two, take the option of resistance and rebellion to the point of death if necessary.

BUT, And I must capitalize this…. WE DON’T NEED MORE CONSUMERS GOD DAMMIT! Ok got that said. We need to sterilize turd world countries OR stop sending aid to them! If you can think beyond the next 20 years what will all your bullshit do? Empower the turds worlders to be more healthy so they can breed more rats to feed? What the hell sense does that make? Breed more people because you are a selfish idiot with no care for humanity? C’mon now… get a grip on reality and STOP BREEDING! Fook, this world can take only so much!

        Wow, a eugenicist in our midst, just what we need, NOT!

        Someone please explain to this pseudo-genius that human beings are made in the image and likeness of God, with immortal souls, and are thus priceless in His sight. Hmm, who was it who said, “Be fruitful and multiply”?

        That said, if you want to think of YOURSELF as an animal and talk about your own “breeding,” that’s up to you. But leave the rest of us alone.

  8. Well, well, well.

    There was a little trouble at some of the many, many rallies. But not that much even while the Fake News (MSM) spewed how “violent” Trump rallies were. It wasn’t that bad. The Fake News lied.

    They said they’d stop him in the primary. They didn’t.

    They said they’d disrupt the convention. Bikers fixed that.

    They said they’d disrupt the elections to make sure he wouldn’t be elected. Miserable failure and a landslide.

    They said they’d disrupt and co-opt the electoral college. Nothing. Well, except a few delegates defected that WERE FOR CLINTON! …and went to Bernie of someone you never heard of.

    Then they said they’d disrupt and keep him from getting Legislative Branch Confirmation. Just a little BS leak and that was done.

    Am I missing anything, so far?

    I don’t think so. Like Obama, these people don’t know how to tell the truth and face reality. They’re all blowhard liar/criminals and they just don’t get it. Either that or they are brainwashed race baiting bastards. Most of them say things about Trump that are just dead wrong.

    Let them do their thing. Bikers! You know what to do. Don’t kill to many of them. We’ve got a landfill problem already, we don’t need to fill it up with even more of that rank garbage!

    Regardless, these people are nothing but BS. Blowhard, grandstanding BS spewing liars. They are wasting their time. Let them waste it. The rest of us have jobs. The gravy train for the parasite class is coming into the station. They’ll just have to get used to pulling their own weight.

        Never start a fight that will cause you to be in much worse shape after its over than you’re in right now. Thats what they’d be doing. But, like Obama, these people don’t know how to deliver. They’re failure and being humans as well as being anything but whiners.

        Do they really think they can succeed? Do they realize the Bikers will be there AND many gun owners? Most of the gun owners I know are people who need guns the least. They could take down a crowd barehanded. These people will be heading into *THAT*. Not only that, the people in these crowds are pissed because of all the lies and insults that have been thrown their way and Trumps way. I would venture to say that even being mildly anti-Trump in that crowd could get you your ass handed to you.

I agree don’t spend your life NOT enjoying it, just BE AWARE and watchful, and have a plan and preps ready, use common sense about where and when you go places. ENJOY life as much as you can because we never know when that may end.

  9. Houston/Cypress/Katy/Shtf says:

    I do not trust that black general. A man with a face and look like that is not a good man. I am a good judge of character, and I do not trust that man. All current generals have all one thing is common, they signed a form that says that they will have the military and foreign militaries fire on the American people. The Pentagon White hats and other white hats in Blackops had that general removed for the safety of Trump. I support that generals removal from power. If a false flag goes down, that general will mobilize soldiers, allowing Obama to declare martial law. What will follow, instant revolutionary war, this they want so that they can bring out the blue helmets. Then they are going to attack Texas. Just 7 days from the day, the revolutionary war starts. That firing was a white hat removal form Trumps safety. A black general will support a black president, not a white president. Its not to allow rioters, its to allow martial law once the riots start after the false flag. I have my opinion, and this is what I think might be happening. Econonmist V said that the 4 star general told his source, that they planned a trigger event. This is only major even of this year, and I think that this might be that event. If Trump gets in, the world will change in a positive direction and wars will stop or possible end. This is not what the globalist planned, they want a 90% kill off ratio globally, with a 250,000,000 kill off in America, leaving only 25 million including a mass extinction of women by 2025.

    I AM GOING TO TELL YOU ALL THIS AGAIN, HE WAS REMOVED BY THE WHITE HATS FOR TRUMPS SAFETY, AND HIS REMOVAL WAS NOT DONE BY obama, it was done by the Pentagon White hats, Period. You will see Trump get sworn in safely, and no false flag will be allowed to happen. Like I said, I have my opinion, I may be right, maybe I am incorrect, lets see what happens?


    • Captain Crunch says:

      Praise Kek brother

      The battle for America has commenced

      See you on the other side

    • Katy,

      I considered the same thing. Either he was removed by the opposition because he will help stop a False Flag or he was removed by the White Hats to prevent a False Flag.

      I’m betting on your side just because I’m optimistic and I see a similar that you mentioned.

      Lets all keep Trump and the crowds in our prayers.

      …The Pentagon White hats and other white hats in Blackops had that general removed for the safety of Trump…

      …Its not to allow rioters, its to allow martial law once the riots start after the false flag…

      Sounds very plausible.

  10. Being a presidential appointee, I suspect he was told he is done as soon as Trump takes office. I have heard several people respond that they wereally done at 1201 pm is not extended by Trump. Hopefully they have advised him that he needs to fill this position asap. I would think that Trump would just plain e him back in command unless he refused the offer.

    Do you think that if the protest don’t do well we will soon be hit with terrorist attacks? Always something.

Make em’ empty their pockets like a TSA shake down, including make them take off their shoes hiding silverware, before they get their last limo ride across town, where his wall is being built around his Mac Mansion in DC. Then slap an ankle bracelet on him and Hillary at the Inaugural. Trump can just arrest Hillary at the Inaugural and put her in prison until her criminal trial.

  18. Did any of you read the article that was posted from the main source? Washington Post. Stop believing everything you see without researching it.

    Per the article:
    Military officials and Trump transition officials provided contradictory versions of the decision to replace Schwartz. As is customary for presidential appointees, the general submitted a letter of resignation to give the new administration a clean start.

    Two military officials with knowledge of the situation said the Trump team decided to accept the resignation. A person close to the transition said transition officials wanted to keep Schwartz in the job for continuity, but the Army pushed to replace him.

    He submitted his resignation which is customary when a new president gets elected. In DC the president decides who is in charge of the NG. Unlike in the states that decision is left up to the governor.

    This is all fear porn. Get a grip and research what you read online. Wtf. Intel gathering should be priority #1.

    SOOOooo…..My thinking is, considering the suspicious nature of this move and the inordinately large number of militant moonbats pledging to end trump’s inauguration and presidency…that we the people should be prepared to enforce the domestic tranquility the liberal president and the enemy/state refuse to.

    By NANCY FLORY Published on January 13, 2017 How Fences Star Denzel Washington Lives Out His Faith in Hollywood
    Faith and family come first for this Hollywood superstar.

    Denzel Washington, one of Hollywood’s finest leading actors, has succeeded in the business by any standard. He’s received three Golden Globe awards, a Tony award and two Academy Awards. But as he recently told T.D. Jakes there are more important things in life than being a movie star.

    From his relationship with God and his family, to the life he now wants to lead, Denzel spoke with Jakes about keeping his priorities straight. (See the full interview with Denzel and others from the cast of his new movie Fences below.)
    Jakes was curious how Denzel and his wife of 34 years Pauletta have survived so many years in the spotlight. “By the grace of God. Really, I’m not taking credit,” he replied. “And a great wife. A strong, strong, strong (woman) … she has done the heavy lifting. She has been the consistent one. She has given daily religious instruction. She makes breakfast, she took them to school. I was out killing the lion, bringing home the meat, you know, providing.”

    Even though the actor has a hectic schedule and is frequently shooting films far from home, he insists his family has always come first. “I don’t want that regret,” he said, when talking about raising his kids. “I don’t care how many Oscars and all that stuff, I don’t want to be that guy. I want to be the one that did the best I can for my children.”

    Denzel not only stars in Fences, but directed as well. Mykelti Williamson, best known for his role as Bubba in Forrest Gump, plays Gabriel in the film and has nothing but praise for Denzel as a strong, Godly leader: “Everyday this leader, Denzel, brings the Word. On Broadway we would circle and have a word of prayer, we would cover one another, and he was serious about it, every single day. ‘Alright, we’re about to bring the Word,’ and Denzel was waiting for you and you’d better be on time.”
    Denzel added, “When we’d have our circle — cause there’s a young girl in the film too — so the young girl, sometimes we’d let [her] lead. Of course, out of the mouths of babes, you know, so we’d go out there together unified with a purpose.”
    It wasn’t just the cast members who prayed with Denzel during the movie shoot. Two neighborhood women who watched the filming from their homes each day became his “prayer warriors,” he said. According to Christian Today, these ladies touched Denzel’s heart. “A woman on the corner, she was watching me. She made her house a quiet place of prayer for me, and I’d go in there when things were getting overwhelming and just take a breath. Sometimes I’d just have a prayer with her.”

    He explained how the second woman approached him. “Even before we started shooting I met her and I came and said, ‘Oh thank you for coming out.’ She said, ‘We’ve been watching you for a long time.’ I said ‘Well, pray for me.’ [And then] she said, ‘Denzel, I’ve been praying for you for 35 years, my family and I,’” he said. “‘We’ve been watching, we know how hard it is.’”
    As this point in his life, Denzel says he’s content and ready to serve others. “You know, I’m in the service business now. I’m fine. I’ve done well. I don’t need anything else. I don’t need watches and jewelry and all that. So I’m here to serve. I’m here to serve God, I’m here to serve my family, I’m here to serve.”

    Here’s the full interview on the T.D. Jakes Show: (Note: I do not support Jakes; he holds a LOT of unorthodox positions, and may not even be a Christian; but the interview is good)

I literally drive around with my SHTF mountain bike just incase my car drops from a possible EMP or grid collapse..told my woman to call in sick and keep her ass home, while I got to work just to be on the safe side. I will make it back, but she may not..i am taking this whole thing serious.. when we get back from the gym, me and one of my locals are heading out to the BOL to make some adjustments..to let a few of my distant neighbour’s know not to shoot our asses on site incase I have to show up in the middle of the night, post SHTF..

Among blacks, nearly 5 million children, or 54 percent, live with only their mother. Importantly, only twelve percent of black families below the poverty line have two parents present (don’t worry – whites are catching up with fatherless families – thanks, feminazis!)

Trump ought to initiate thousands of radio and TV licensing revocations against all major media outlets. Imagine no more news on NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, MSNBC … the only programming they will be allowed to do is push their Hollywood scum-trash programming. Imagine 95% of the big six owned newspapers going out of business due to being banned regarding their lies!! I won’t hold my breath, I still think the status-quo or worse is going to occur regardless of name of president.

  40. Reader1 says:

    I wouldn’t assume this is some sort of “coup”. Barry’s just a spiteful, hateful guy who likes to destroy everything he can. He’s the spiteful kid who breaks his toys before he’s forced to share them with others. And we know he hates this nation and everyone in it and always has.

    I’m not a military genius, but doesn’t canning the good general really amount to very little in the short run? The deployment is already planned, contingencies have been planned, orders issued, and the troops prepared. They don’t need a general at this point to carry out crowd control duties, especially since their troop leaders and unit leaders are still there (as far as we know). (I served and I always felt like the more senior the leader, the less important he really was.)

    I kind of think losing the general is really more of an issue in the long-term policy-wise. So the DC nasty guard won’t be getting the new Trannies in the Ranks directive next month and the new plans to issue all the troops with Don’t Drink and Drive plastic keychains won’t happen til’ next quarter. Whoop-ti-freaking do. I’ll believe it’s a disaster when I actually see some evidence of it.

    Also, we still don’t know why he was actually fired. Maybe he was crooked? Maybe he stole stuff or raped a soldier. More likely, Barry found out he voted Trump and rewarded him for his political and racial loyalty. Bathhouse Barry can’t be unemployed soon enough.

  41. anon says:

    I see Bill and Hillary will be at Trump’s Inauguration. Of Course Moochell and Bath House Barry.
    I want to know if they will attend any Trump parties. I hate your guts but will drink your booze and eat your food, type of revenge celebration. Could Hillary be hoping that a sea of lefties will overcome the Conservatives and install her as President right there on the pavilion.
    I’m sure “Chucky” Schumer and “Bride of Frankenstein” Pelosi, will be planning a welcome for Trump’s Plans in Congress.

You all know Lindsey Williams.. realist news on YouTube, that dude, who keeps up with the webbots, and Lindsey Williams talked to his elite friend and they are scared of Donald Trump because they no control of Donald Trump, the elites said they have been set back 50 years and cannot turn it back to how it was before, they are in a lot if trouble because Trump is and independent, not Democrat or republican, he is working and literally answering for the people needs…

    It’s is my belief, me HCKS. that the timeline has changed course in the positive direction but let me caution you. Hmuller explained that divine intervention has steeped in the American People have reaching. Its God, and a God stepped in.. as a Christian and servant of God I believe that the cabal will collapse and if they pull a bad stunt at the inauguration, the patriots, the veterans and the cops, and white hats military, which consists of the white hats Navy, a response is expected, so they won’t dear pull ant bullshit and Trump will be sworn in. Social Media a helped us do it, sites like this one. This is literally evolution of our Species.. we the awakened and are a new species, we have evolved.. to stop our evolution is messing with mother nature and messing with God’s creation. So the fucking shit as now hit have fan..God does not put up with luciferian bullshit and stepped in through us and we will end it..the bastards fired on the cops in Dallas and that opened the eyes of law enforcement to take a deeper look into there overlords activity as to who is really running them up top..

    “There’s a huge gap between the world as reported by the news media and the world as it really exists,” Newt Gingrich recently said.”

    No duh.

    The real fake news is the lying, lamestream media, a la Pulitzer winner Walter Duranty of the NY Slimes telling us no one was starving in Stalin’s Ukraining Holodomor (2.5 to 7.5 mm died), famed reporter Lincoln Steffens telling us “I have seen the future and it works” in Stalin’s USSR. And of course there was Stalin’s Englishman, Guy Burgess – who of course started out at the BBC. More recently there was fiction writer extraordinaire Jayson Blair of NYT (google him if you have forgotten), Dan “I found a memo on Bush” Rather, the whole media adulation re. outed faked Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu (originally accidentally exposed by a fellow leftist), or my fav, Mikey Mann’s fake global warming hockey stick dealing with the whole BIG GREEN MONEY fraud, which Dr. Richard Lindzen, prof. of atmospheric science at MIT, Dr. William Gray, the #1 hurricane forecaster in the world (and we are at historic hurricane lows not seen since the Civil War) and John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel (go to YouTube and search for JohnColeman+global warming) have all called – and I quote ipsissima verba “a *scam.* (Even Mr. Warmer himself, Kevin Trenberth, wrote back in 2009 – and as outed in the ClimateGate revelations the media also “forgot” to tell you about – “[W]here the heck is global warming? The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can’t.”

    I will listen to Streep or any of the other Hollywierd Learjet leftists the first time just ONE of them just opens up just ONE room in just ONE of their zillion room mansions to just ONE indigent person or illegal immigrant for just ONE night. Thankfully, with the complete hypocrisy of these limousine liberals, I am safe.

    All – Interesting thoughts concerning the 20th of January, a day that will go down in history. I am way west and don’t expect the trouble to get here for a few days if it occurs. However, I have prepared the RV to be ready to roll. Obama will do almost anything to stay in office, I believe he would sell Michele to stay in office, so Trump needs to take the oath, make a 5 minute speech, then bug out to Area 51 for a few days so things cool off. Since he does not use the press, he can just come back and not tell anyone.

    I believe this to be ‘fake news’. I’m not suggesting that ZeroHedge got the story wrong, not at all, just that the story is not truthful. My prior military contacts from Washington, D.C. (now retired) tell me that this man is trying to make a statement and has portrayed the ending of his assignment falsely to draw attention to himself and to intentionally discredit President (elect) Trump. I was told he CHOSE to step down on the day of Trump’s inauguration. It was not demanded of him. It was not even requested of him. All people in similar positions routinely tender their resignations to the new POTUS. Some resignations are eventually accepted and others are retained in their current assignments. Bogus story. Disgraceful really. Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz – you’ve disgraced yourself.

    • Buff, you are correct. They all offer up their resignations. Trump wanted him to stay on until the day after the swearing in. The General chose to step down, in order to embarrass Trump. Trump made the right decision to accept his resignation. The Generals antics are grounds for disciplinary proceedings.

  57. Jack May says:

    The state, district or territory AG is more than likely to be a purely political appointment without regard to active duty criteria for appointment. There are states like Florida that allows the time in grade to dictate the tenure of the AG. However for those who are political appointees, they know their tenure ends with the installation of a new executive. To say this was a surprise and their should be outrage is coming from the voice of the ignorant. The AG does not directly control the mission activities of the troops. Trust me there are much more qualified leaders handling that. The hyperbole of the left is becoming a droning distraction to the real issues that face it. Oh, by the way I am a retired National Guard officer and know of what I speak.
