Oh.. Now you talk about "O" butt kissing military men?
How appropriate.
There is a reason they are "retired".

Walt

Keep at it he/she,, your showing your true commie colors.

Walt

Rice, Brennen and Struck are being issued subpoenas.
That's just to start. That's a nice invite to show up.
Yup, "O"'s inner circil(of REAL jerks) should start sweating.

Mary Wanna

Obama is not President, Trump is, and he is blowing chunks.

"President Trump’s threats to use the U.S. military on protesters"

You mean besides Hurricane Hugo and the Detroit riot and the MLK riots and Hurricane Katrina and the Los Angeles Riots (and the Bundy Standoff and Waco on the more minor side)?

People either have damn short memories or they just invent it all as they go.

Paul Emery

George

Yes, it should be taken for granted that politicians of both parties stretch the truth when expedient . In this case my subject material was Ted Cruz so I thought it appropriate to share Trumps opinion of the man., Like everything else expressed by our Liar in Chief what he says is contextual and serves his needs at any given time. George, are we not to believe a word he says?

Walt

Emery.. Need a reminder of your boy "O" and his pack of lies?
Back to that crap again?

How bout those LIBS getting hauled befor the Senate Emery?
They got splain'n to do about their LIES...
Yes.. lets talk about lies, and the ones spit out to try and frame Trump.

Walt

I thought Emery wanted to discus liars? Lib liars?
Medication liars? Because Trump was for it, LIBS and the proggy press had to find quacks to discredit the medication.
The truth is coming out.
Yes Emery,, lets talk about those systematic lies from Proggy land.

Paul Emery

Let me know when there's indictments and convictions of Obama appointees Walt Trump already has a list and Nixon has dozens.

Walt

Run Emery Run!! The words of a scared ol' buzzard.
You were all for the subverstion of the Trump administration.
You care to confirm that? You had no problem with the illegal prosecution of Gen. Flynn. You have yet to retract your statements.


Now how long did it take for those convictions you hold on high take? Where they done overnight? Tell us of ponytail of BS.

You had two years of trying to take Trump down. That failed mission came to an end just how long ago?

Riots or no riots. Your boys are going down, and not behind closed doors.
The fun has just begun.

Hows that book "the world according to Emery selling in the fiction section?

Walt

Since Emery won't go to the news,, the news must come to him.
"WASHINGTON – The Senate Homeland Security Committee on Thursday authorized the issuing of nearly three dozen subpoenas of Obama administration officials as part of Senate Republicans' investigation into the origins of the FBI and special counsel probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign.

The Judiciary Committee, meanwhile, met to consider more than 50 additional subpoenas, but postponed action until next week."

Your LIB pals are REAL nervous.
It was OK when they did it for political reasons.

Walt

Not all "military" agree with rabid dog Mattis.
https://dailycaller.com/2020/06/04/retired-marine-cpt-john-m-dowd-mattis-lafayette-park-protesters/
"“I slept on your statement and woke up appalled and upset,” Dowd’s letter began. “You lost me. Never dreamed you would let a bunch of hack politicians use your good name and reputation — earned wiDowd went on to call the protesters in Lafayette Park “phony” and “terrorists using idle hate-filled students to burn and destroy.” He mentioned the fact that former President George H. W. Bush had used the military to help regain control after Rodney King was killed in Los Angeles.

“President Trump has done more to help our minority brothers and sisters in three years than anyone in the last 50. Ask the black pastors. Ask the leaders if the black colleges and universities. He got them funded. Ask them about the prison reform which ended the draconian sentences imposed on young black men by the laws enacted by Biden and his hacks. You need to bone up on your homework and stop listening to Uncle Leon,” Dowd continued.

He went on to criticize Mattis for saying nothing about “ugly, hate filled, disgraceful” comments made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and concluded by asking whether Mattis’ anger was “borne of embarrassment” for his own failures.th the blood and guts of young Marines.” "

Bill Tozer

Yeah Walt, let him know when those convictions come in.

Actually, with so much at stake, the Deep State will fight for and with the cabal with everything they got....especially so this current administration. The Swamp is huge and there are a lot of career personel that have their livihood, life, reputation, and necks on the line. And that don’t count the media, the forces of Soros and the globalists and the PACs, America hating TDS advocacy groups, Obama’s groups, Hillary ‘s pawns, and the movers and shakers funding it all. The Bureaucrats are blocking Trump at every turn as we speak. Wrey could have been fired along time ago.

The good news is when the FBI Boston Office became so corrupt that the FBI Boston Division were on the Mob payroll and even framed an innocent man and knowing he was innocent, put him in jail for life for a hit done by an FBI informant..on tape. It looked like nothing could ever clean the place up. Mueller always showed up at the convicted parole board hearings back in the day to block his release. Their own informative had done a hit for the mob and the FBI framed and convicted an innocent man. A small side note is the FBI chief in Boston had not been cashing his paychecks, leaving them in stack in his bottom drawer because he was living fine off the mob money.

Anyway, the FBI top brass quietly looked around to see who they had that could clean up Boston. Only one name came up, a man of impeccable integrity; John Durham. It was John Durban that moved to an FBI office in a nearby town (not Boston where the action and good restaurants and fun times are)...all business, has a job to do. He methodically built an ironclad case against the Boston FBI rats at the top. He is the one who secretly interviewed the secretary and found out about the uncashed paychecks and quietly brought them down. One in a hundred, maybe one in a thousand.

So Walt, that is the good news. The bad news is Durham is methodical, so he takes a long time. Durham and Barr want it right, not expedient.

Meanwhile, the cases brought against those indicted by Mueller are quietly shrinking. The Russia troll farm company? Dropped. Flynn...well not so quiet and still an open question. Obama’s previous lawyer for not filling out the proper form for working for a foreign government? Not guilty. Oh, that charge was the same one as they had against Flynn (besides lying), dropped as well. What? Started off a darn near 30. :). They got Manafort for tax evasion, someone Trump never met before he volunteered to run the campaign. Whipped! And they got Roger Stone on small stuff, after he refused to commit perjury and lie about Trump. Oh my.

[Hypocrisy & satire alert]

I just want everyone here to know that considering the circumstances I am totally in favor of the President of the United States unilaterally ordering active duty US military personnel into the streets to battle protesters. I'm totally in favor of militarized federal agency personnel from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and US Bureau of Prisons showing up without any identifying marks on their uniforms or any way to track who and what agency they work for showing up on the streets.

This after all is what we trained for in Jade Helm? Right?

It really simple, when Trump is gone and 20 years from now President Abrams uses that power I am sure all of you will be right there supporting the use of federal agencies for law enforcement :)

" I am totally in favor of the President of the United States unilaterally ordering active duty US military personnel into the streets to battle protesters. "

Just to be clear, you were against active duty military showing up for the LA riots or Hurricane Katrina?

I do like this video. Not just because it's a more mild version of looting (ie I'm not cherrypicking), but just to show how the police can't deal with large scale situations.

The Pubbers ticket that could win would be Kasich-Rubio but there's not a remote chance that will happen. My prediction of Biden-Warren for the Dems would be unbeatable. By the time the election comes around they would appeal because of Warren's economic message and Bidens maturity and general good nature. Bernie will easily endorse and support that ticket. . The Repubs are in general snarley and insecure once they get off their anti Obama wagon. No doubt they will opt to s moderate turned right candidate that will feel as uncomfortable in that role as did Romney in 12. At this point Walker, the incredible shrinking man, is disappearing and leaving only Bush, Rubio and Kasich with any sort of middle of the road appeal that wins ellections. The bible thumpers, Cruz Huckabee and Santorum (now below 1%) will bliss and flame out. The others are unelectable in the big leagues.

Posted by: George Rebane | 05 June 2020 at 10:09 AM

What a question to ask George. I don't support the threatened or widespread use of the active duty US military for domestic law enforcement duties under any circumstances.

In the case of hurricane Katrine national guard troops were used for disaster relief efforts...rescuing people, not law enforcement...and were identifiable from their unit and name patches. In the case of The 1992 LA riots national guard troops were federalized to assist law enforcement in a limited circumstance at the request of the Mayor of LA and Governor of California.

In the recent case of Washington D.C. troops were not requested by the Mayor of D.C; and were deployed in the case of federal agencies without the request of the Mayor and without identifying unite or personal patches.

The hypocrisy I am pointing out is that I don't see any posters here objecting to that use of agency and military personnel while they have been highly critical of the same or similar agencies actions in other cases, such as the Bundy standoffs.

The case I would make is that the POTUS does not have the constitutional authority to use troops or agencies this way whether under the current administration or a future administration.....period; thus I would oppose it 20 years from now as well.

But y'all don't get to have it both ways...you don;t get to bitch about federal overreach 364 days of the year then remain silent on it when President Trump over reaches.

Nothing more ridiculous than a pasty white guy dropping a "Y'all".


......I just figured you would be all in favor of the deployment of Federal assets.


Confiscation of civilian firearms[edit]

Controversy arose over a September 8 city-wide order by New Orleans Police Superintendent Eddie Compass to local police, U.S. Army National Guard soldiers, and Deputy U.S. Marshals to confiscate all civilian-held firearms. "No one will be able to be armed," Compass said. "Guns will be taken. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns." Seizures were carried out without warrant, and in some cases with excessive force; one instance captured on film involved 58‑year‑old New Orleans resident Patricia Konie. Konie stayed behind, in her well provisioned home, and had an old revolver for protection. A group of police entered the house, and when she refused to surrender her revolver, she was tackled and it was removed by force. Konie's shoulder was fractured, and she was taken into police custody for failing to surrender her firearm.[86][87]

Angered civilians, backed by the National Rifle Association and other organizations, filed protests over the constitutionality of such an order and the difficulty in tracking seizures, as paperwork was rarely filed during the searches. Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association, defended the right of affected civilians to retain firearms, saying that, "What we've seen in Louisiana - the breakdown of law and order in the aftermath of disaster - is exactly the kind of situation where the Second Amendment was intended to allow citizens to protect themselves." The searches received little news coverage, though reaction from groups such as the NRA, the Second Amendment Foundation, and Gun Owners of America was immediate and heated, and a lawsuit was filed September 22 by the NRA and SAF on behalf of two firearm owners whose firearms were seized. On September 23, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana issued a restraining order to bar further firearms confiscations.[86]

After refusing to admit that it had any seized firearms, the city revealed in mid-March that it did have a cache of some 1000 firearms seized after the hurricane; this disclosure came after the NRA filed a motion in court to hold the city in contempt for failure to comply with the U.S. District Court's earlier order to return all seized firearms. On April 14, 2006, it was announced that the city will begin to return seized firearms, however as of late 2008, many firearms were still in police possession, and the matter was still in court.[86] The matter was finally settled in favor of the NRA in October 2008. Per the agreement, the city was required to relax the strict proof of ownership requirements previously used, and was to release firearms to their owners with an affidavit claiming ownership and a background check to verify that the owner is legally able to possess a firearm.[88]

Here's a few pics of Marines "rescuing people" (per Mr. Frisch) in LA.

https://www.wearethemighty.com/history/marines-la-riots

Yeah.....Marines might have been a little much!



When the Los Angeles Police Department responded to this particular domestic dispute during the 1992 LA riots, they likely didn't need the backing of the United States Marine Corps – but they had it anyway. Upon approaching the house, one officer was hit by a shotgun blast of birdshot. He called back to the Marines to cover him. Unfortunately, what "cover" meant to the Marines and to the LAPD were two different things.

The officer just wanted the threat of M-16s pointed at the house to keep the shooter from shooting again. The Marines thought the 200 rounds they fired into the house would be enough. They were probably both right. But that's not how the U.S. Army National Guard would have done it.

Hey Y'all, The Trump Dumpster Fire continues to burn out of control, The Buffoon thinks he was responsible for the Space X launch,

"A new petition, signed by thousands of people, is calling for U.S. president Donald Trump to stop taking credit for SpaceX and NASA accomplishments. The petition was created in response to a recent “Make Space Great Again” video released by Trump’s reelection campaign, which included footage of SpaceX’s recent successful launch of two NASA astronauts.

According to Ars Technica senior space editor Eric Berger, a “lot of people” at both NASA and SpaceX are furious about the ad.

“This campaign video, created on June 3rd, implies that the return of crewed launch on U.S. soil is solely to the credit of his Administration,” reads the petition. “This implication is untrue; the NASA Commercial Crew Program has been around since the Obama Administration (started in 2011) in its current form, and its roots go back to the Bush Administration.”

Daily Quotes

Good question: “Why didn’t President Barack Obama’s administration deal with this alleged ‘systemic’ or ‘structural’ or ‘institutional’ police brutality against blacks in his eight years in office? Meanwhile, over Memorial Day weekend in Obama’s adopted hometown of Chicago, 10 people were killed, and 49 were shot. In a city where roughly one-third of the population is black, 70% of the city’s homicide victims, according to the Chicago Police Department, are black. When and where do the protests begin?” —Larry Elder

Food for thought: “There is no natural place where one can logically stop with the collective culpability racket. If I as a ‘white’ American of multi-European ethnicities have ‘benefitted’ from the political and economic systems in the United States, one could just as plausibly argue that I benefitted from the Irish Potato Famine, the Inquisition, the Thirty Years’ War, the bubonic plague, the sacking of the library at Alexandria and every other historical event that somehow made it possible for me to be who and what and where I am at this moment. … History has proven — amply — that a political system founded upon class resentment, blame, hatred and violence destroys everything and helps no one.” —Laura Hollis

For the record: “The truth is that we have a much larger, deeper and more chilling problem on our hands. There is no doubt in my mind that foreign intelligence services are orbiting in or around this issue and contributing to the violence. They see an opportunity to further destabilize the United States. They want to roll back our influence. Unable to defeat us militarily, they want to strike at us economically and to chip away at our society, causing the population to lose confidence and trust in our system and structure of government. We must not play into their hands.” —Armstrong Williams

Upright: “It is only through honest conversations with your neighbors, your friends and the new people you bring into your life that we can begin to really hear one another again. Our political polarization has helped inspire extreme reactions. When we are ranting at one another from our own separate corners, our own news sources and our own social media clusters, we cannot listen, and we cannot solve anything. We have to stop reacting to everything out of our deep-seated ideologies and start having real conversations with one another again.” —Jackie Gingrich Cushman

Non compos mentis: “We’re devastated, grieving, and outraged by violence against Black lives. We must continue to demand accountability, justice, and an end to the inequity that continues to define every moment of life for Black America from the racist institutions that uphold white supremacy.” —Planned Parenthood, which, as Tyler O'Neil points out, butchers 247 black babies in the womb every day

Alpha jackass: “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people.” —Joe Biden

Race bait: “[America is] a private club founded by old rich white men, for rich white men.” —Charlamagne tha God

And last… “The same politician who destroyed your business a few weeks ago is now making value judgments on when and where you can practice your freedoms. It is a massive scandal.” —David Harsanyi

Nearly 4 in 10 American adults reported engaging in dangerous cleaning practices to prevent COVID-19, such as washing food with bleach, using household disinfecting products on their skin or intentionally inhaling vapors from cleaning products, according to a recent survey.

The amendment language would have made an exception for anyone who already lawfully owned an assault weapon as long as they registered it with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
But the court in a 4-1 opinion said the ballot summary was misleading because it said weapons lawfully possessed before the initiative was passed would be exempted.

The court ruled that voters would be deceived because the initiative wouldn't have protected the weapon itself, but rather the person who lawfully owned it. In other words, people who legally owned a weapon wouldn't be able to sell it or give it to someone else.

“While the ballot summary purports to exempt registered assault weapons lawfully possessed prior to the Initiative’s effective date, the Initiative does not categorically exempt the assault weapon, only the current owner’s possession of that assault weapon. The ballot summary is therefore affirmatively misleading,” the court wrote in its opinion.

Bad news for LIBS.. Unemployment numbers are headed downhill on skates. Not going up like the proggy press predicted with glee.
So much for the 20% unemployment prediction.
In other words,, GOOD news for Trump.

So you blueball LIBS,, you go right ahead and "swallow" for Biden. (note to self... Copyright that bumper sticker.)

George's 7:04,, To Them,, a rock is an assault weapon.(in the hands of a Righty)

Hell Doc... They are looking to put plenty of shotguns on that list. Bolt action rifles. Lever action rifles. ANY gas operated
rifle. If our military ever used it... It's supposed to be on the list.
Some are working a muzzle energy designation (over 10,000 joules)

https://nationalpost.com/news/liberal-gun-ban-quietly-expanded-potentially-putting-owners-unknowingly-on-wrong-side-of-the-law

OTTAWA — The RCMP has quietly outlawed hundreds of rifles and shotguns over the past month, adding to the list of 1,500 firearms already banned by the Liberal government on May 1.

The list has been expanded without public notifications from either the RCMP or the federal government, raising concerns among gun sellers and owners that they could have unknowingly bought, sold or transported illegal firearms in recent weeks. The recently banned firearms have all been deemed illegal retroactively, as of May 1.

The new list also includes a number of single-shot and semi-automatic shotguns, and at least one Russian-made pump-action, despite repeated claims by Public Safety Minister Bill Blair that Ottawa’s sweeping ban would not include guns used for bird hunting.

Blair defended the sweeping prohibition in early May, after some confusion emerged over whether some 10 and 12-gauge shotguns could be included in the ban, due to a provision that outlaws any firearm with a bore diameter greater than 20 millimetres.

WASHINGTON POST DISMAYED BY GREAT ECONOMIC NEWS

“At first glance, it might seem shocking the the Post writes its story to fit a preconception before it knows the facts, but on reflection, that is pretty much what it does all day, every day.”

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/06/washington-post-dismayed-by-great-economic-news.php

Read an article a few days ago and one line jumped of the page at me. “always confident, but often wrong”. I parlayed that in my head to a number of people, including the bony fingered one, Obama, and others. Feel free to use it anytime.

"They're NOT assault weapons"

Sure they are... assault weapon is a meaningless term.

What they are not is "assault RIFLES" which has meaning... a light selective fire machine gun.

Don Bessee

Note to the frishy one the status of DC is my point, the insurrection act is not necessary in DC since it is a Federal District, clear?

The seat of the U.S. federal government in Washington is located in a federal district called the District of Columbia

George Rebane

Gregory 823pm - Thank you again Gregory. To those in the military 'assault weapon' is very meaningful term. It is any military procured and issued weapon to be used in an assault. They come in many shapes and sizes including mounted, self-propelled, launched, crew-served, and individual. Assault rifles are just one kind of assault weapon. That's what it was when I was a combat arms officer and they remain the same today. My 704pm was meant to reject the anti-gunners' labeling of weapons that no military today would procure and issue its troops for the purpose of carrying out assault (or even point defense) missions. But then again, armchair warriors have a different set of semantics.

“But then again, armchair warriors have a different set of semantics”.

Off topic, but I didn’t know whether to laugh or shake my head when Ilhan Omar said the tanks in the street where scaring her constituents. I guess she doesn’t know the difference between an armored vehicle and a tank. Hey, doesn’t the Nevada County Sheriffs have one of the Swat Team tanks?

Gregory

And in exactly the same way, an "assault weapon" is a weapon used in an assault, differentiating it from, say, a wall decoration.

"Assault weapon" as a term was invented to confuse the voters into banning semiautomatic rifles thinking the were full auto "assault rifles" first introduced by Germany circa 1944 but made famous by the Soviet AK-47 and the US M16.

Joe Biden Blames George Floyd for Delayed Jobs Plan, Claims He Was ‘Held Up Against That Curb’

Lets not forget the Greatest Generation -

All too many have been, for 76 years since that fateful June 6 on France's Normandy beaches, when allied troops in 1944 turned the course of World War II and went on to defeat fascism in Europe in one of the most remarkable feats in military history.

Forgotten they will never be. Revered, yes. But Saturday's anniversary will be one of the loneliest remembrances ever, as the coronavirus pandemic is keeping almost everyone away — from government leaders to frail veterans who might not get another chance for a final farewell to their unlucky comrades.

Rain and wind are also forecast, after weeks of warm, sunny weather.

“I miss the others," said Charles Shay, who as a U.S. Army medic was in the first wave of soldiers to wade ashore at Omaha Beach under relentless fire on D-Day.

Shay, 95, lives in France close to the beach where he and so many others landed in 1944. He knows of no U.S. veterans making the trip overseas to observe D-Day this year.

“I guess I will be alone here this year," Shay said before he performed a Native American ritual to honor his comrades by spreading the smoke of burning white sage into the winds lashing the Normandy coast Friday.

The eerie atmosphere touches the French as well as Americans.

“The sadness is almost too much, because there is no one," said local guide Adeline James. “Plus you have their stories. The history is sad and it’s even more overwhelming now between the weather, the (virus) situation and, and, and.”

A closing thought on our valiant warriors -

Were it not for National Guard soldiers deployed to Washington, D.C., this week, all of the most cherished monuments in the nationa's capital would have been defaced by violent protesters, Fox News' Pete Hegseth said Friday night.

In addition, the White House likely would have been besieged, the co-host of "Fox & Friends Weekend" said during an appearance on "Hannity."

Hegseth knows firsthand, because he spent some time serving with the Guard in D.C. during the unrest.

"I was there for three nights on the streets of Washington, D.C.," Hegseth said. "At one point, it was me and a handful of other guys standing at the Vietnam War Memorial to defend it from people who would want to deface it, after the Lincoln Memorial."

Hegseth said that while he was stationed at The Wall, he prayed and began to think how similar the situation was to that experienced by troops returning from Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s, many of whom received hostile welcomes in the U.S.

"I remember saying a prayer there and thinking, 'This is what it’s like to be a Vietnam veteran -- what they went through when they came home,'" he said.

The Union Newspaper has me flagged for moderation of any comments I make on any article. And they disable those comments as well. Why is it when another person attacks the things we hold dear they allow that to stay but a response by me is taken off? This is why I canceled my subscription. The Union is now the gatekeeper to keep out dissent especially from me. But if I scare them and the liberal democrats so much you know I must be effective. This is a small example of why the press and these local papers are headed to the dustbin. They cannot stand a conservative voice and when we defend ourselves from their minions attacks, they have to silence us. The Union is no different then the censors of Facebook and Twitter who flag and remove conservatives. I know the censors at the Union will tell you that I am too aggressive or provocative in my defense of the values and conservative ideology. But is that not what makes America different than Venezuela? I think these censors are a danger to America and I suggest you all tell them to stop or get a different profession.Fascists.
