  • "Happy" Memorial Day

    05/29/2017 6:18:24 AM PDT · 15 of 42
    Carthego delenda est to Peter W. Kessler

    The following is an email I received this morning from Brandon Webb, former Navy SEAL:

    “Hi xxxx,

    “As you can imagine, today is special at Hurricane—a mark on the calendar that is as personally-relevant to our mostly-veteran staff as possible. It’s a day to memorialize those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. And we all know someone in that category. And many of us know all too many. Memorial Day started shortly after the Civil War (under a different name) and is still of the utmost importance now.”

    “Today’s conflicts and wars aren’t like those we’ve read about in history books, heard about from previous generations or studied in the military. Today’s battlefields don’t feature distinct frontlines or hundreds of thousands of uniformed men. And victory and defeat often-times blend together and might even be absent of declaration or have so minimal of a difference that they’re one-in-the same.”

    “But just because numbers and nations are different, allies and foes ever-changing and outcomes undefined, war is still ever-present and affects us all. Don’t make any mistake—war has always been hell. And it will be to the end of time. And so too will the fact that people die in conflicts and are taken from us forever. This will never go away.”

    “But all this sacrifice and bloodshed ensures we still live in the best nation in the world. We enjoy unparalleled opportunities and freedom. There will always be people looking to take that away from us or otherwise disrupt our way of life—but I am confident that this is one victory that will remain decisive. History has shown that we are a people who will not give in or be ruled.”

    “So on Memorial Day, take a little extra time to remember and honor those who are no longer here. Every generation of Americans has personal connections to the loss and pain war causes and is forced to rely on memories of service men and women stripped of otherwise longer lives.”

    “And please take solace knowing that there are still bad men willing to go to dark places and thrust themselves in harm’s way in the name of freedom. Sleep a little easier at night knowing somewhere, one of your American brothers is poised to act on your behalf. Sometimes he must inflict violence. Other times he must show compassion. But he’ll always make his decision based on what we have and what so many have given their lives to protect.”

    “Happy Memorial Day.”

    Sincerely,

    Brandon Webb
    Former Navy SEAL
    CEO of Hurricane Group, Inc.”

    “Don’t you just miss seeing Chewbacca stepping off AF1 in her Walmart seersucker shorts with her butt cheeks hanging out, flip-flops on her feet, big scowl on her face, and her hair looking like it had just left a blender?”

    Thanks for the laugh! Chewbacca needed to resign itself to the fact that a linebacker in drag is ALWAYS going to look silly!

  • Gianforte Taps Out Quist In Montana Special Election

    What I don’t understand, is how Quist became such a libtard. He was raised on a ranch in Montana, played sports in high school, small rural town, etc. How did he go from that to pro-abortion, pro-Obamacare, pro-libtard everything, though I couldn’t find his position on 2A. Was it drugs? Is he a sodomite still in the closet? Perhaps he isn’t a Christian?

    At least he lost, but it was too close! Montana sure has become Californicated! It makes me sad. I spent two summers there many decades ago as a youth, staying with some relatives in the foothills of the Galatin Range. It really was heaven on earth for me and played an important part in developing who I am; spending weeks up in the mountains, working on a small ranch, learned to shoot and hunt. Now...last time I went through that area, about 20 years ago, I could barely recognize it. So many people! Lots of B&B’s and ‘dude ranches’, lots of athletic types seen running or bicycling everywhere, and it had a California ‘vibe’.

    “all persons on the tax return need a VALID SSN, if not they’ll just use 123-45-6789 or similar.”

    I had those thoughts too. Illegals will either just make up a SS# or pay for a confirmed stolen identity.

    “We could build a Death Star!”

    The ‘asteroid’ already is a hollowed out transport megalopolis for an alien species who were created by yet a different, highly intelligent species. The inhabitants of the ‘asteroid’ are miners, and they’re coming to Earth to gradually replace humans. The human species has been infected with the liberalism virus, which drastically slowed down the process of mining Earth. There was a need for a new species immune to liberalism, in order to get the mineral extraction process of Earth back up to speed. The internetz sez so.

    Yeah, sure John, your ‘word’ is gold. Forget about the little detail that the organization you headed was the world’s premier election rigging organization, responsible for toppling whole governments just so you can install a puppet who will dance to your commands. There’s absolutely NO chance you’d use your computer malware against these United States for the benefit of your Globalist overlords. Sure John, if you say so, it’s good enough for everybody, and The Ministry of Propaganda will repeat your words over and over and over, just in case there happens to be anyone who would dare to doubt you.

    It would be interesting to know how much money has been lost by computer/tablet/smartphone users across the globe due to this CIA created malware. After totaling up all the lost hours of work, ruined devices, expenses to repair, lost deals and contracts, etc., the dollar figure must be astronomical.

  • The Russian Narrative is Dead

    “Any Russian “interference” in the 2016 election wasn’t aimed at helping Trump win.....Their “interference” was aimed at making sure she was weakened and exposed to endless investigations from the moment she took office.”

    I disagree. I don’t buy into any “interference” in the first place. There wasn’t any “interference”. I suspect the whole Russian “interference” meme was created so that when Hillary won the election, they would already have an enemy set up to demonize in order to escalate the ‘conflicts’ in the M.E., and perhaps elsewhere. Remember, these are the people who create crisis in order to implement a ‘solution’ they desire.

    When the witch didn’t win, it was a move of convenience to fully shift the Russian “interference” narrative into saying the Trump campaign was complicit. At best, they could hope for him being removed from office, and otherwise just keep using it as a talking point to tie up his administration with constant accusations and investigations, as a form of damage control, to prevent him from un-doing all the ‘work’ they’d accomplished under Obama, as well as preventing Trump’s stated agenda from moving forward.

    The Russians didn’t want Hillary to be weakened. It’s the Clinton’s (and the Uniparty in general) who have been involved with giving the Russians our uranium and God knows what else. It’s all smoke and mirrors with these people, ALWAYS creating a ‘crisis’ in order to sell the public on the ‘solution’ they want. Exactly what the particular ‘solution’ they desired by creating the ‘crisis’ of Russian ‘interference’ was originally meant for is something only ‘they’ know, but given all the efforts that went into destabilizing Libya and the surrounding area, I fully expect that they intended to escalate those conflicts, claiming Russian involvement needed to end. Saying things like ‘Russian interference in our elections is the equivalent of a cyber 9/11 attack on our nation’ was just to generate public opinion of Russia as the ‘bad guys’ we needed to stop...again. Smoke and mirrors.

    “Also, I’m familiar with the misdirection the left uses. Whenever we’re getting close to something critical, they interject ‘bombshell’ evidence into the discussion. In due time they reveal the bombshell as a hoax, thereby not only discrediting the fake narrative, but the true, crucial elements of the issue as well.”

    Exactly! Most people cannot see this tactic and then throw the baby out with the bath water. An perfect example is as soon as ‘pizzagate’ started gaining traction, they sent that idiot with a gun over to the pizza parlor as misdirection.
