Before the 2016 Presidential Election, and both before and after the inauguration, I wrote specifically about how important the midterm election would be, and the results if the President should lose even one House of Congress. That happened: the Republicans just lost the House of Representatives. Now that the Democrats control it, not one piece of legislation will pass that is on the President’s agenda. In the supreme act of denial, the Republican party claims the “Blue Wave” was not successful; even the President declared a “victory” with the midterms.
Nothing could be further from the truth, on either count.
The Democrats intend to mount a non-stopping offensive against the President. First, they are going to demand that Mueller go on the attack again. They are already demanding the President’s tax returns. On Thursday, 11-8-18, thousands of people marched in Times Square in New York City in protest of Jeff Sessions’ departure from the White House…although Sessions was the one who tendered a letter of resignation. The mob of protesters carried mass-produced “No one is above the law” placards and signs.
Not one of those Marxists carried those signs when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resigned after Benghazi, where a U.S. Consular Outpost of the United States was destroyed, and the U.S. Ambassador and four of his staff murdered.
“Happy Veterans’ Day” is coming up, with the cliché eternal: “Thank you for your service.”
Nobody really cares about it, except the vets. Those who have to work receive time and a half for their pay, and Hallmark makes about another $50 million or so on the cards and gifts…about $10 million of that for the Government to “re-ingest” with the taxes….another day on the endless cycle:
The cycle of spending of disposable income, an indispensable part of the economy and all of the governmental employees on paid federal holiday, solemnly dispensed of at the expense of (to paraphrase Metallica) the government’s “disposable heroes.”
Where were the protests in the streets after Benghazi? Everybody was hidden, because at the time we were under Obama. When Donald Trump was elected President, a “hiatus” was granted from the nonstop march toward socialism/communism that reached a zenith as never before. Now that hiatus is shrinking, as the Communists and Marxists begin new offensives under their playbook “Rules for Radicals,” offensives targeting every area of the society.
Their plan should be obvious: to keep the President “backpedaling” and the economy faltering, in order to set the stage for the 2020 election. All of this I have written about before, and it came to pass with the Midterm elections. If they keep the President on the defense and keep pushing the “social issues,” it will render his administration ineffective…not delivering the change back toward the right that the voters wanted to see in 2016.
The Wall Street Journal published a piece on November 9 entitled “Democrats plan to pursue most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades.” They have been receiving plenty of help on this one, with the Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, and the recent murders by a former Marine last week. Here they come again! All of the legislators…with armed protectors paid for by you, mind you…clamoring for the guns. Here’s a piece of it for you:
Democrats say they will pass the most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades when they become the House majority in January, plans they renewed this week in the aftermath of a mass killing in a California bar. Their efforts will be spurred by an incoming class of pro-gun-control lawmakers who scored big in Tuesday’s midterm elections, although any measure would likely meet stiff resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans with “A” National Rifle Association ratings, while the candidates elected to replace them all scored an “F” NRA rating. “This new majority is not going to be afraid of our shadow,” said Mike Thompson, a California Democrat who is chairman of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. “We know that we’ve been elected to do a job, and we’re going to do it.”
Now of course the argument to this rationale will be that the Senate is needed before a law passes. Yes, we all watched “Schoolhouse Rock” and learned about the three-party system of checks and balances. The problem? Nothing was accomplished when the Republicans held both houses of Congress, and the Reds and Blues counter one another, and more:
The Democrats’ strategy is not to pass any laws: it is to stir up public controversy, win support of the “Zero” generation, and either force actions through the “tyranny of the majority,” or make it so horrible an arena that it detracts from or prevents any positive efforts and actions from the administration…setting the stage for the 2020 election.
Ocasio-Cortez just entered the House of Representatives at the “sage/sagacious” age of 29, and she is a self-described “democratic socialist” who favors single-payer healthcare, gun control, abolishing border controls, and declared that she would support the impeachment of the President. She was also part of Bernie Sanders’ campaign movement in 2016.
Lenin espoused some “gems” that should be considered. Here is one that falls in line with the “newly discovered wonderful possibility of socialism” the Zero-generation and twenty-somethings have fallen in love with hook, line, and sinker:
“The goal of socialism is communism.”
New York just placed a “democratic socialist” in the White House…a declared socialist, among all of the hidden Marxists camouflaged under the “progressive” or “democratic” monikers.
Gun control, coming at us once again, and once more, a quote from Lenin for you:
“Disarmament is the ideal of socialism. There will be no wars in socialist society; consequently, disarmament will be achieved. But whoever expects that socialism will be achieved without a social revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat is not a socialist. Dictatorship is state power based directly on violence. And in the twentieth century – as in the age of civilization generally – violence means neither a fist nor a club, but troops. To put “disarmament” in the program is tantamount to making the general declaration: “We are opposed to the use of arms.” There is as little Marxism in this as there would be if we were to say: “We are opposed to violence!” – Lenin, “The Disarmament Slogan,” from October of 1916
The next two years should be interesting, to say the least. Keep in mind: the President is not throwing in the towel, however, he has one more year to turn the tide…before he has to campaign. There is still another way, though: I mentioned it in the last article that I wrote. Bush Jr. used this technique successfully when he was trailing Kerry in the polls. Margaret Thatcher used this technique when she was about to be shown the door, and turned it around, remaining in office.
The “technique” is a war, whether a “quickie” (such as the Falklands War…Malvinas, if you prefer), or a protracted one (Iraq “II” where victory was declared within months of started, and it was achieved…with the decades and a half of Military Industrial Complex contracts…and the transition of the United States into a Surveillance and Police State).
The technique is a war, and if you keep abreast of what is going on, you will see that Russia and China are gearing up for a war, the nations are “decoupling” themselves incrementally from the dying fiat-backed Petrodollar, and North Korea is once again raising itself as a nuclear threat (on its own, or encouraged by one or more nations). A war could either suspend elections, or propel the incumbent into a victory based on the populace’s perception of what they need. Remember this last quote from Lenin, and let it sink in good:
“A standing army and police are the chief instruments of state power.” – Lenin, State and Revolution, 1917
The ultimate truth: the elections are akin to the Stock Market, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average. It doesn’t matter how many shares are bought or sold, as long as there are fluctuations and flux. The winners are the brokers, who pocket their commissions on every trade…a sell or a buy. The same exists here. The blue donkeys versus the red elephants. The “tribalism” of men, and their needs of a social order…a cohesive social grouping that reflects what they believe in…is exploited to its maximum advantage. All the while, the paradigm shifts almost imperceptibly, until before you know it….twenty years have elapsed, and you are not looking at the same country anymore.
The “art” is to make the people think they will be getting what they want…dupe them into believing it is something good, when it’s not. It took the blood of heroes to form and defend this nation. The downfall is precipitated by traitors from within…bleeding the nation white by circumventing existing laws and replacing them with the greatest injustice and threat to personal liberty of all. What is that greatest threat? A foreign enemy? A spontaneous collapse of everything?
No. The greatest threat is the acceptance of the people of the illusion of “social justice,” that really translates into something for nothing by taking from those who have earned, and giving it to those who live within the entitlement cesspool of their own sloth. Such a mentality pervades our society today. In order to save the United States, we have to return to our fundamental values and become an ass-kicking, straight-shooting people who fear God and care for their families, neighbors, and nation once more. If we do this, we may emerge from the coming night as a nation once more. Ready your NVGs, and steel your hearts for the challenge before it arrives…now…at the twilight’s last gleaming.
May Veterans’ Day bring remembrance to your mind, may your heart find peace, and may any who serve in your family be safe and sound.

I have found that relatives and friends in Calif are talking about things that Trump has said that I have never heard mentioned where I live. they are being fed a line of BS by the media where they live. they refuse to listen to me when I tell them they are nuts it never happened. The dems lie very well and create an army of hate out of thin air. If we stand idle and do nothing we will get what we put up with. We must stand firm and fight back for once instead of being professional victims of the left. Stop being masochists
MS: I agree with you. Folks, on the Right, you best get off your asses and actually do SOMETHING or it is going to be a very, very sad & painful day come 2020 when that fugly beast – Crooked Killary finally becomes President!! The Left has cracked the heads of so many on the Right and nothing….crickets. Guys, it is NOW do or die. If you all do nothing, you might as well pack up EVERY single Gun you own and all of the other toys and hand them over, because that is exactly what is coming down the Pike…mark my words.
The sooner the hot war starts the sooner these traitors to our republic are dead.
Im serious about this fellow Patriots: JJ is spot on here. The Dems ARE coming for our guns. Buy as much 223/556 as you can, I assume everyone already owns an AR.
The Dems will try and go for an AWB, and a high cap mag ban and outlaw sales of 223/556. By spring there will likely be an AWB and a HIGH-CAP MAG ban, by summer the aforesaid 223/556 ammo will be available by NICS check only, eventually banned to the public.
The so-called universal background check is actually a greatly expamded check run by a to-be-created deep state bureaucracy hostile to gun owners, that will expand the banned list into the scores of millions overnight. I see that coming by next fall.
Behind on your alimony? turn in your guns. A feminist screams at you and reports you for a hate utterance? turn in your guns.
When CW II happens, I want to be in charge of executions in the camps. Having researched WW II Europe in depth, I believe I could do such work with Teutonic efficiently. I’m tired of paying for Earned income credit, TANF, WIC, SSI, Section 8 housing, head start programs, EBT…..
The America we knew is gone, and no amount of “voting” is going to bring it back. Those who can’t face that need to disabuse themselves of that delusion.
The leftists are focused, they want another soviet union, and they want it here. They are not afraid, unlike most casual Americans.
Being that I love dogs more than ponies I will take the dogs side in this show……
We all have been preparing for this for a decade. Some of us longer than that. I have two main points to make today, first, The Rule of Law is as dead as it can get. It is now just a political tool to be used against Republicans. If the Democrats can break the law with impunity, I suspect we can as well. They can pass any damn law they want, then they can come enforce it, or die trying.
Second, our votes were the last non-violent thing we have at our disposal to take our country back. We see today, that voting means nothing… Its the people who count the votes that matter, and they all want all of us to disappear.
When the Democrats pass legislation aimed directly at the heart of patriotic Americans, the Senate can say no. If they say yes, then President can say no. If Trump says yes, its up to each of us to say NO. Or, we are all finished.
“If the Democrats can break the law with impunity, I suspect we can as well. They can pass any damn law they want, then they can come enforce it, or die trying.”
Is a very profound and accurate remark.
I always say I do not violate any Constitutional Federal, state, or local laws. I view most Democrat actions as unconstitutional.
Bonefortoona: You are 1,000,000,000% Correct my friend!!!! It is upon us, what are WE on the Right going to do? So far, everyone is a bunch of useless pu$$ies and that disgusts me beyond words, while the Left does pretty much anything the no good cunt$ want. And what do we do, wine and cry like a bunch of retards…all talk and no action, just like every other time. ALL the Mr. Tough guy talk. Sell all your silly guns and buy pink dildos, you will need them all you little honeys out there.
Bone, good points. I’ve always said that nothing government does has any legitimate basis to it. The govt. officials all consider themselves to be above the law but we’re all expected to follow those same laws regardless. There’s no rule of law anymore, just the rule of evil, corrupt people, so we don’t have an y obligations to such people. Civil war 2 can’t seem to come soon enough.
“A man’s rights rest in three boxes. The ballot-box, the jury-box, and the cartridge-box.”
OOPs–did I just get in NSA’s view box??
Seems the world has gone full retard,
Who is John Galt!
Apparently, John Galt is your imaginary friend. Do you play like you are John Galt when no one is around?
Do you really think your anonymous?
Anonymous, I think Nailbanger was asking a question so you don’t know what you’re talking about.
Don’t feed the trolls. Just ignore them.
One god thing about the Democrats return to control of the House, the establishment Republicans can start introducing bills to repeal Obamacare again and can start introducing funding of the border wall without fear something might actually pass and get signed into law.
That’ll make them look good to their supporters and help get them reelected.
I think you don’t understand the process.
There is no introduction* of ANY Bill in the HoR without the permission of the Majority.
(*If by “introduction” you mean that the Bill will be discussed or considered in any way at all.)
The way the System works is that any Bill that is to be considered is submitted to the relevant Committee that has ‘jurisdiction.”
This System can be by-passed, but it is rare and will require the permission of the Speaker and other top dogs.
What happens to any Bill introduced by the Minority Party (automatically) and perhaps a Maverick of the majority?
It is most likely “tabled” by invoking the Parliamentary Rules of Order in the Committee with a vote to do so by the majority of the members (who are the Party in Power.)
There will be no discussion of the Bill….at all, and no vote.
So I guess you can brag back home and in your Campaign Literature that you “introduced” the Legislation…
Is that what you meant?
That’s pretty much the way I meant it.
Jim, same here. Let the scum bring it. They just won’t be careful about what they wish for.
Deplorable: I hear ya brother. To all my fellow Patriots out there, buy buy buy high cap mags and 223/556 ammo, before they are banned, hang on because we are in for a “Great American Ammo Shortage Redux”. The left is listenin’ to us and will try and ban and confiscate what we need.
Hey Democrat Party: “WHENEVER THE LEGISLATORS ENDEAVOR TO TAKE AWAY AND DESTROY THE PROPERTY OF THE PEOPLE OR REDUCE THEM TO SLAVERY BY ARBITRARY POWER, THEY PUT THEMSELVES INTO A STATE OF WAR WITH THE PEOPLE, WHO ARE THEREUPON ABSOLVED FROM ANY FURTHER OBEDIENCE. – John Locke
Hey Republican Party: “WHEN MEN REDUCE THEIR VIRTUES TO THE APPROXIMATE, THEN EVIL REQUIRES THE FORCE OF AN ABSOLUTE. WHEN LOYALTY TO AN UNYIELDING PURPOSE IS DROPPED BY THE VIRTUOUS, IT IS PICKED UP BY SCOUNDRELS-AND YOU GET THE INDECENT SPECTACLE OF A CRINGING, BARGAINING, TRAITOROUS GOOD AND A SELF-RIGHTEOUSLY UNCOMPROMISING EVIL. – Ayn Rand-ATLAS SHRUGGED.
Ayn Rand was an atheist. What’s the basis for objective morality (good vs evil and right vs wrong) without Yahweh? If there is no GOD, there is no such thing as objective morality. This is how evil justifies itself.
If there is no God, there is no evil.
Maranatha: Do not shoot the messenger. Her atheism was rooted in the disdain for the Russian Orthodox Church, which allowed itself to be co-opted by the Bolsheviks. Should we discount Mr. Locke’s words because some of the Founding Fathers who used them were Freemason or Deists? Truth will always be its own defense, regardless of who speaks it.
You do realize, do you not, that they reject such statements ?
We are living in the waning years of the Republic. Demographics are not on the side of western civilization and those conservatives of European decent in the US. It is only a matter of time and I will probably not be around for the actual fall. But, that does not mean I am being complacent in my preparing in case of SHTF — because you just never know.
As I was taught by great manager “…never think short sighted…” So look forward….
If we have any economic down turn or another major blip on the economic radar in the next two years those who voted for dems will take the full brunt of the Trumps ire in told you so comments like “…and if we were given the opportunity to continue our policy in the 2018 midterms this would not have happened…” For Trump it is nice to have that out.
Most of the dems major accomplishment of the last 100 years have not been legislation but the judicial activism of the courts. By retaining the senate Trump can influence the Supreme court on down with conservative judges and possibly reverse minor activism. I would not expect major reversals in the next 2 years.
Administratively Trump can still get his people approved with a republican senate. This is good news because Trump will most certainly shake up his administrative offices.
If dems subpoena than Trump will stone wall them as past presidents have done.
And lastly Trump like Obama and Clinton will use the pen and phone to run the government. Bill Clinton was the “king” of EO’s and Trump can do likewise…
In the long run take a peek at history. We parallel the Roman empire in a multitude of ways. The result is simple:
– The trend is down hill.
– Trump is a stop gap president ( I voted for him and support him 100%).
– The race is to see if socialist economics dies sooner or later.
– The longer socialist economics hangs around the higher the chance of civil war.
” Bill Clinton was the “king” of EO’s and Trump can do likewise…”
If the courts let him.
Think of recent court fights on everything immigration and foreign travel related and how the courts have blocked and then re blocked or otherwise modified them to support a pro open borders/immigration stance.
When it comes to gun control laws, I hope EVERY patriot will file suit against the government and cause havoc in the courts for years to come. It would keep them busy just dismissing the law suits. And that EVERY patriot refuse to pay taxes. When all else fails, then Civil War to preserve the Republic. “In war the only sure defense is offense, and the efficiency of the offense depends on the warlike souls of those conducting it.” General George S. Patton
” By retaining the senate Trump can…” do nothing. The Dems/Communists have flipped the Senate election results in FL, GA, MS, AZ and TX to Dem. Jan 1st it will be 53 Dem to 47 Stupid in the Senate. Trump will never make it to 2020. With both houses of Congress in Communist hands, The Donald will be legally, verbally, and probably physically harrassed 24/7/365 until he resigns. Then, the Communists will probably have him killed. So, knowing Trump is lame duck, who will fire the first shot?
The problem is not Democrat’s verses Republicans.
The problem is the Oligarchy. Oligarchs are few.
When in 1913, Rothschilds succeeded in an illegal implementation of a Rothschilds Non-Christian Bank.
The IRS enforcers of the unconstitutional tax on labor called income tax which is actually a tax on labor or tax on employment. Only the profits of corporations are taxable. The Constitution is not dead, it lives on in our hearts and minds. But these Oligarchs have violated and neutered it with their control of money and our government.
Down with the Oligarchy.
Rothschilds took the land in the Middle East by getting the USA into a war. It was WW2.
Rothschilds took Control of England by trickery in the stock market.
Rothschilds is behind everything. Rothschilds is the problem. Rothschilds and Rothschilds fronts created the invasion and takeover of Russia, the first Country and the richest, which under the banner of Communism, was raped and pillaged. The USA is under attack by the same.
BCA: The real problem is that the Republicans all talk shit and do nothing!! That is the primary problem….Sad and pathetic.
So if the Fed Reserve is a corporation, do they also pay taxes on their profits? They may be behind in taxes since 1913. Id say the National debt is the amount of Taxes the Fed reserve Owes America for the 105 years in arrears for failing to file and pay taxes.
To get Americans hooked on Debt, they allowed you to deduct all the interest charged on your credit cards, on your yearly federal tax return. Then in 1986 they pulled the rug out from under those in debt, and phased the interest deduction 50% first year 20% then 10% in the third year. That was under Pres Ronny Raygun and his 8 yrs of deregulation of the banks, which lead to market bubbles and crashes like we have now. Another bank robbery of Americans and created a mass generation of credit card debtors.
History of the personal interest deduction
Credit card interest and other forms of personal interest were deductible on income taxes some years ago, but Congress eliminated those deductions in the Tax Reform Act of 1986.
According to the Treasury Department, the personal interest deduction was seen as encouraging Americans to spend money rather than save it; in reality, it also reduced tax revenues. That’s because money that people put in savings earned them interest, which was taxable income, but if they ran up credit card debt, they could deduct the interest from their income, which lowered their tax liability.
A little overblown…
A Tax Deduction is just a discount.
I don’t remember (and am too lazy to research it)the Tax Rates from back in the 80s, but let’s just guess that for a majority of the Middle Class people who had CC debt back then that it was 20% as the marginal rate.
If you had a $1000 credit card interest deduction that year, the return to you would be $200 at that marginal rate.
If you measured it against the Average Tax Rate you paid that year, it is even lower.
What you want is Tax Credits, not deductions 🙂
Ah well… just when you think you have enough 30 cal SMK……
Been a lot of talk ’bout Hilldog running in 2020. I might just for “shits and giggles” vote for her just to get this Civil War ball rolling.
Reper: Oh that thing will run again you can bet on that and the beast will in fact win next time…bet on it, no doubt about it unfortunately!!!!
RS and CC, I doubt it very seriously. Not with the health issues she has.
All dems have “health issues” lol.
The Dems plan on launching a non stop attack on the President? No, it’s a non stop attack on us. Act accordingly.
Folks, time for TALK has pasted by, so what are WE going to do? This is extremely serious and damn concerning people. NO more talk, talk is for pu$$ies.
there is always a lot of tough talk here but no one is going to DO anything, just talk by keyboard commandos.
Him, let the Dems bring it. They’re going to regret the day they decided to try to harm us.
They will always stop short of igniting a spark. That is their method to provoke you…
Do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes.
Or they are in range of your .300 winmag…
Methinks when the Dems begin their pursuit of the Donald he will take the gloves off and hopefully release the docs which will expose the corruption and treasonous activities.
I’d wager against that happening.
Trump was supposed to have already done that, but he back-peddled. He was probably warned not to. And,even if he did, no one will do anything about it.
Gooberpleae you gave a good laugh with your key board commandos thanks
Well you idiots who state we gotta do something. your just spouting bullshit & being a Keyboard commando. Im satisfied to be patient and not do anything other than prep. Most of our adversarys on the left will simply starve. Then after the 90% die off we need to make certain that those countinuation of Government folks never emerge from their Hidey Holes at places Like Mt Weather. Trump isn’t going anyplace. He will get reelected. But 6 years isn’t a very long time. and the next president will not have the same Strong will & thick hide. The NWO and Agenda 21 folks make long term plans and if the leaders all croaked tomorrow it wouldn’t matter. There are others just a evil who will take their places. Its really a simple choice we become Peasants ,Serfs or Slaves. Or all infrastructure must be destroyed and we are Free people living a Stone Age existence. With only one Law. Survival of the Fittest. either choice isn’t a very pleasant outcome.
Very well put.
Life is a game of Chess, not poker.
“Bobby Fischer creates a chess masterpiece in only 21 moves against Robert Eugene Byrne” – Look for it on youtube
Fischer backed Byrne into a corner from which he could do nothing, so, he threw the game. Basically surrendered, because he spent too much time trying to match Fischer’s moves, and in the end, he was in in Check, no matter what.
Can you not see, the Republic is in Check?
relik, I have a full house. Whats in yer hand lol?
All this talk of Civil war is nonsense. People will just take it like they have for 50 years or more. I heard people talking of a Civil war since the 1960’s. All these Preppers with their Guns will just slowly Die off from Cancers ets. Its too late. Sorry but thats how i see things unfolding.
