Trump vs. Obama

[High Praise! to The Silicon Graybeard]

I mean I’ve never seen a total outsider run for president and get this close. He has even less political experience than Obama had in ’08, and that’s really tough to do. To get less experience than Obama, a candidate would need to have negative experience. Heck, Trump essentially has negative experience when you consider how he thought politicians were convenient purchases to get things done for his businesses. D? R? Doesn’t matter. Buy ’em by the six-pack.

She’s as Healthy as a Woman Twice Her Age

Hillary apparently collapsed on the way back to her van after visiting the 9/11 Memorial. Since it can’t possibly be due to any health issues, it is probably the result of one of the following:

  • After fifteen years, the horror of the 9/11 attack finally made it through her diseased nervous system
  • She was momentarily overwhelmed with thoughts of Huma
  • Bill accidentally put the GHB in the wrong cup of coffee
  • She thought she heard the national anthem and tried to take a knee
  • The effects of the virgin sacrifice ran off more quickly than expected
  • She just tripped in her rush to get back to the van before time ran out and it turned back into a pumpkin and she turned back into a rat
  • It was just a trust/fall exercise
  • She failed to read the fine print in her contract with Lucifer….
  • Trump finally decided to fight her witchcraft with voodoo
  • An enemy must have tainted the baby’s blood at the Black Sabbat
  • Her Obamacare policy won’t pay for her Rascal Scooter without more documented proof of need, so she’s been staging falls

Are They SURE It Wasn’t a YouTube Video? Because There’s This One That Makes Her Knees Buckle

Hillary’s had a little “episode” in NYC

just after 5 p.m., a campaign official said Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, had examined the candidate at her home in Chappaqua, and Dr. Bardack said in a statement that Mrs. Clinton was “rehydrated and recovering nicely.”

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” Dr. Bardack’s statement said, adding that on Friday morning, after a prolonged cough, Mrs. Clinton was given a diagnosis of pneumonia.

“She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,” Dr. Bardack added. “At this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated.”

So… she’s “dehydrated”, has an “allergic cough”, (but no sneezing, watery eyes, or runny nose), “pneumonia”, and is “overheated”.

I can only assume that Lisa R. Bardack is one of Dr. Nick‘s pseudonyms.

September 11, 1683-20–

September 11th has now several times become an important date in the history of the West versus the Muslim world. On September 11-12 of 1683, the Ottoman Caliphate made its last bid to finally take Vienna and open up the heart of Europe for its ever expanding conquests into Christendom. Due to the fractious nature of European politics, there was little in the way of support for the beleaguered Viennese available from their scheming and forever bickering European neighbors.

The Ottomans counted on this, knowing they could not successfully invade a united Europe. But Poland, traditionally enemies of Austrians, managed to bring a force to their aid, and with the largest cavalry charge in history sent the Muslim army fleeing Vienna, never to return. They had just been on the cusp of breaching the city, but were dealt such a blow that over the following centuries the Muslim occupation of significant portions of Europe gradually receded into what is now modern day Turkey.

The West had won its “final” war with Islam and greatly surpassed the Islamic world technologically to the point where no united Caliphate army could ever seriously threaten invasion again. And so the West forgot about it.

But Islamists did not. They merely changed tactics using a combination of terrorism to undermine the morale and determination of their enemies, and the original jihad of immigration which has its roots in the immigration from Mecca to Medina by Mohammad himself and his followers. To Islam, immigration is conquest.

Various terrorist attacks occurred in the latter part of the 20th century, but none quite accomplished what the Islamists intended: to send the great western powers flailing about in wars they could not truly win, demoralizing their people and draining their resources.

On September 11, 2001, the key terrorist attack finally happened that would accomplish this Islamic goal. Due to the heroism of the patriots on Flight 93, their full plans were not realized; however it was enough to bring the USA and their allies into multiple wars, shaking up the power structure of the Middle East and ultimately unshackling many of the Islamist who had been suppressed by dictators for years.

On September 11, 2012, Islamists attacked a US consulate in the city of Benghazi, Libya leaving the US Ambassador to Libya and three American agents dead. In the following years, ISIS, a group whose roots began in 1999, took vast amounts of territory in the war torn countries of Iraq and Syria and for the first time since the Ottoman Empire was dissolved, declared itself a Caliphate. The primary goal of all the previous terrorism was now realized.

But that will not be the end of it. There will be more September 11s to add to the history books, unfortunately. It is an important date to Islamists, and they understand the psychological impact of attacking the West on that date.

You will read all over the internet today about American resolve and how no matter what the terrorists do, we will still “rise up” from it. While our resolve is great and our people are exceptional, I ask rise up to do what?

There still seems to be reluctance, in general, among our people and especially our government to identify who the enemy truly is and what it is they want. Without that, we will never defeat them. How many times can a people be attacked and then rise back up, only to simply go on with their lives while their leaders throw yet another trillion dollars into misguided military campaigns?

I think the best way that we as Americans can honor those who died in attacks such as 9/11 is to really come to grips with who and what the enemy is, what they intend to accomplish, and find a way to stop them with the clarity of understanding them. Toppling regimes in the Middle East obviously doesn’t work. Simply bombing things does not work. Trying to be “nice” to Muslims does not work.

It is not the Islamic world that is confused, it is us. They do not fit into our understanding of how the world works. The West in general seeks to apply its own set of principles to these people, when those principles do not apply in reality. Their culture is at odds with ours and it seeks to dominate the planet.

I don’t have a solution, but simply “destroying ISIS” is not enough. You can’t destroy an ideology with the military. But we had better come up with a solution quickly, or the 9/11s will continue. I ask everyone to pray for the families of the victims of all terrorist attacks and to honor those lost in the fight against Islamists, but to also understand that we are Vienna of 1683.

The enemy is at the gates and the cavalry isn’t coming.

A Great Nation

15 years ago today. It was an attack on American soil like no one living had ever seen. I was one of the “warbloggers” who started a blog soon after, feeling the need to get involved. So I made political posts with Aquaman references. Everyone can do something.

Times have changed. I’ve changed. But there’s still the belief that this is a great nation. There is something special about it. And the hope is there is a way for us to remember that without a huge tragedy.

Everyone seems so gloomy and depressed now, even though we continue to be a country with opportunity and ability like no one has ever had before. If we want to honor the dead and show our enemies, we need to reclaim the spirit we had after the attack on 9/11. The one where we knew that we are a nation who can take on any problem and any foe — people who are not going to get overthrown by their own angst and navel-gazing.

So whatever it is you do, put on a smile. Because you are in the greatest nation this world has ever seen. And kick some ass. Because that’s your duty.

Dual Survival: HRC Campaign Headquarters – The End

Joe: The first order of business is to find a safe source of water.

Matt: With all of the drinking fountains and the sink in the lunchroom, you would think this would be an easy task.  But you couldn’t be more wrong.  You can’t trust any of them.

Joe: Don’t forget, you are deep in Democrat country here.  For all you know, that water is coming straight from the Flint River.

Matt: Or even worse, the Animus River.  You can’t trust any of it.

Joe: That’s exactly right.  And the worst part is there is no way to easily process it.  Boiling it won’t remove the lead or heavy metals or chemicals.

Matt: And even if boiling would work, you can’t start a fire around here.  The fumes from all of the BS in this place are far too flammable.  A single ember and the whole place could go up in a raging fireball of death.

Joe: Another thing to be very cautious about is the refrigerator in the lunchroom.  Don’t trust anything in it.  Especially if you see a big, refreshing picture of fruit punch, just back away slowly.

Matt: That is one of the first rules of survival in any Democratic outpost.  No matter what, don’t ever drink the Kool-Aid.

Joe: And another place to definitely steer clear of is any sort of restroom.  Mens, womens, family, doesn’t matter how it is labeled, just stay out, dude.

Matt: It is important to remember that words lose their meanings around the Clintons.   The plaque on the door could mean anything.

Joe: I totally agree, bro.  You don’t know what you will find in there, but it will probably be something scary.

Matt: And something very irritable.

Joe: If you get confused and address it with the wrong pronoun, that is where your story ends.

Matt: Totally, bro.

Joe:  Shhh!  Did you hear that?  Quick!  Hide!

Matt (whispering): Is that what I think it is?

Joe (whispering): ‘fraid so. It’s Anthony Weiner’s weiner.

Matt: Oh, geez.  I wish someone would just tell him this isn’t Naked and Afraid.

Joe: I’ve had to stomach a lot of nauseating things on this show, but this is the closest I’ve ever come to losing my lunch.  Not even when I drank my own pee…

Matt: We need to get out of here fast before we suffer irreparable psychological scarring and potential gender confusion and associative male shame disorder.

Joe: If we could just clear all the zombies out of the office space and lobby, we would have a straight shot at the front entrance.

Matt: I agree.  That is the best approach. The last thing we want is to try for the back door when Weiner is around.  If we could find a way to lure them all away.  If I could just find a way to sneak past the zombies and get to the receptionist desk and use the intercom.

Joe: I’ve got a better idea.  It’s a good thing we kept that Obama phone after all.  I think I can work through the wifi and hack into the Clinton Headquarter server and gain access to the security system.  (working at the touchscreen on the Obama phone) What?  You won’t believe this.  The only protection the system has is Windows 10 built in security?

Matt: Really?

Joe: Really, bro.  It would save me a lot of time if I could just crack Hillary’s administrator password.

Matt: Try Hillary2016.

Joe: No.  That didn’t work.  Monica_Sux?  Nope.

Matt: Black_Votes_Matter?

Joe: Nope.

Matt: Oh_Huma_My_Huma?

Joe: Nope.  And a no for Lawsareforthelittlepeople.

Matt: How about $$$Uranium1$$$.

Joe: Nope.  But I got it.   I’m in.

Matt: What was it?

Joe: Hillary2008.

Matt: Really?  2008?  She hasn’t changed her password since 2008?

Joe: Can’t say for sure.  Could be she just doesn’t know what year it is.

Matt: I guess it doesn’t matter.  At this point, what difference does it make.  Can you get into the security system?

Joe: I’m looking.  Wait a minute.  What’s this?

Matt: That looks like a price list for Clinton Foundation favors.  Who knew you could corner the US uranium market for only $50 million?

Joe: And for only $1,000,000, Hillary will erase your wife’s or daughter’s or mother’s or grandmother’s number from Bill’s contact list, but she’ll clear you of child rape pro bono, just for fun.

Matt: And it only cost $50,000 to get Chelsea canned from her fake job at NBC.

Joe: Well, that would have happened on its own.

Matt: Totally, bro.  The anti-charisma on that Chelsea woman, dude.  She’s got to be the leading cause of narcolepsy in males aged 14-45.

Joe: I’ll just save that file for later.  But, it looks like I’m in control of the security system now.  All their intercoms and alarms now belong to us.  Here we go: turning on the alarm.  (alarm claxons blare).  (speaking in the Obama phone linked to the intercom system) Attention!  Attention!  This is not a drill.  Someone wrote Trump 2016 on the sidewalk in chalk.  Please report to your safe spaces and do not come out until we give the all clear.  I repeat, please report to your safe spaces.  This is not a drill.”

(All the zombies scurry away from the office area and the lobby)

Matt: Now just give them a few minutes to clear out of the way.

Joe: That should do it.  And now we can walk out the front door.

Matt: This just goes to show that even if you get trapped in such a hostile place as the Hillary Clinton Election Headquarters, if you keep your head you can still make it out alive.  Hey, what are you doing?

Joe: Just writing Trump 2016 on the sidewalk with this Sharpie.  Then I’m going to go sit on that park bench and see how many heads explode.

That Thing That Doesn’t Count As Racist

[High Praise! to Mike Rowe Facebook]

Let’s assume that Donald Trump is indeed popular among white men who didn’t graduate from college.

The first question is, so what?

Is this information newsworthy? Obviously, thousands of journalists think it is. To your point, the words “uneducated white men” now appear in hundreds of articles about Trump.

But if this is truly important information, where were these reporters four years ago? In the last election, an even greater majority of African-American males who voted for President Obama had no college on their resume.

Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall any headlines or articles that delved into Obama’s popularity among “uneducated black men.”

Dual Survival: HRC Campaign Headquarters – Part 2

Joe (unzipping the backpack): Let’s see what resources we have to work with.  Well, there’s a fair amount of hemp.

Matt: We should take that.

Joe: Totally, bro. We can make some cordage out of that.

Matt: Yeah, cordage….

Joe: And some striped, footy pajamas?

Matt: Better take those too.

Joe: I’m not wearing those, dude.

Matt: Those are all that could be standing between us and hypothermia. The AC is really cranked up in here.

Joe: Which is surprising given that Hillary is known to be extremely cold blooded.

Matt: Just fighting global warming one cubicle at a time, bro.  Cooling the globe through technology.

Joe: I’m still not taking the PJs.  You can take them if you want them.

Matt: Then I’m sleeping toasty tonight.  What do you think about the Obama phone?  Take it or leave it?

Joe: That’s a tough call.  I don’t like leaving resources like that behind, but I just don’t know if I trust it, you know.  It’s probably what got us in this mess in the first place.

Matt:  Totally.  And the NSA will be using it to watch us, bro.  Could be preparing to send the drones out after us already.

Joe: It’s not the NSA I’m worried about.  The security on those things is so weak, odds are the Russians have already hacked it.  Putin is probably watching us.

Matt: Maybe you could look for some kind of reset button.

Joe: I’m really on the fence on this one.

Matt: Why don’t we just take it for now, and if we notice anything suspicious, we can ditch it.

Joe: Ok, I can live with that, but I’m not using the GPS.

Matt: Should we head, then?

Joe: We’re right in the middle of mindless zombie country, and you know how I am about forced protection, so give me a minute, dude.

Matt: I think you are right.  We definitely need something to keep the horde back if we happen upon them.

Joe: The problem with these Hillary thralls is that their brains are so tiny, it makes them really hard to kill.  You can fill their head with holes, I mean, really turn their skull into swiss cheese, and they just keep on coming cause you haven’t even grazed the brain yet.

Matt: So, what do you suggest?

Joe: Our best bet is to find something that will ward them off or scare them off.

Matt: Send them scurrying away into their safe spaces.  I like it.

Joe: Anything that looks like a gun should do the trick.  They have no experience at all with real weapons, so any reasonable facsimile should do it.  Anything with a pointy end and a handle should open their bowels right up.

Matt: Too bad I already ate my Pop Tart, bro.  Hey, maybe we can use this stapler.  Just swing it open at the hinge here. You can even shoot some staples at them if you were in a bind.

Joe:  I like it.  And if you do it fast enough, they might even think it’s some sort of automatic weapon.

Matt: An unregulated assault stapler.

Joe: That should make them run crying for their crayons.  Oh, but before we go.  A couple more quick things.  I’m going to take this Sharpie and obscure my marine tat.  And you better turn that Bernie 2016 shirt inside out.  If they see military or Bernie, those Hillary zombies will start seeing pink, and I don’t even think the staplers will slow them down then, bro.

Matt: On it.  Are we ready then?

Joe: Let’s go.

Dual Survival: HRC Campaign Headquarters – Part 1

Narrator: Special Operations veteran Joe Teti and primitive hunter-gatherer Matt Graham , two guys with two opposing survival strategies, are wading through one of the nation’s sleaziest places to show us how to make it out alive.

(Snap cut to Joe)

Joe: Once you get sucked down into it, it’s almost impossible to get out.  This place is very aggressive.  The minute you get here, you are fighting for your soul.

Narrator: HRC Campaign Headquarters, dominated by rubes, radicals and corrupt, foreign donors, this place has over 65,000 square feet of cubicles and conference rooms manned with hostile social justice warriors who would like nothing better than to turn you into one of their dead voters.

(Snap cut to Matt)

Matt: This is one of those wild frontiers left where a person can wander in and disappear for years, only to resurface to take up permanent residence in a sanctuary city, a faculty lounge or the lobby of the unemployment office.

Narrator: These offices are home to a number of venomous creatures like leftists, race-baiters, and cop-killers.

(Snap cut to Joe)

Joe: This is a very hostile environment.  Everything here is trying to take you out from the beginning.

Narrator: It all provides cover for the most deadly apex corruptor of them all, Hillary Rodham.

(Snap cut to Matt)

Matt: It can get up to five and a half feet tall, pushing almost 250 pounds, and it can lash out with a vicious and unreasoning vitriol.  When you hear that grating fake laughter, your heart just stops and tries to flee through any sphincter it can find.

Narrator: In this scenario, Joe and Matt take on the role of Bernie supporting millennials who mistakenly wander into the HRC Campaign Headquarters.

(Snap cut to Matt and Joe)

Matt: Reality is so fluid and twisted in here, you’ll find yourself lost with no clear direction how to get out.

Joe: You’re in a white water swamp, surrounded by progressives, with no way to navigate out.  You make a small mistake here, you’re gonna pay for it.  This is where your story ends.

Narrator: This is Dual Survival.

Joe (approaching two backpacks on the floor): These guys got themselves in a bad spot, and that’s putting it mildly.  I can imagine they had the munchies and probably had some money left on their food stamp card.

Matt: And those are use it or lose it, you know, bro.

Joe: Exactly.  So they had their free Obama phone out using the GPS to locate the nearest Whole Foods or Organic Market so they can get their organic wheat grass.

Matt: Or their Chilean sea bass flavored tofu snacks.

Joe: Or whatever.  But what they don’t realize is that the people who programmed the Obama GPS were the same folks who programmed the Obamacare website.

Matt: It was a packaged deal, really, bro.

Joe: Totally. It was in all the papers.  So anyway, they’re following the crap GPS, and before they know it, they’re right in the middle of hostile territory, surrounded by dangerous natives with no idea how to get out.

The Truth About Wolverine

[High Praise! to Basic Instructions]

Wolverine is a superhero. He murders villains with knives that are built into his arms. He can also heal really fast, and has an unbreakable skeleton, but without the knives, he wouldn’t be much use. He’d mostly serve as a distraction, allowing the enemy to beat him mercilessly while the rest of the team does more important work.

I think he’d be called “The Pummelee.”
