    Oh…but “women must be believed!”
    No.
    There are too many women out there who Lie, shamelessly, and this has been going on for a long time.

    I hope more and more examples like this are brought to light:

          Ask anyone in the health care industry. The ones that work
          with the sickest patients ( renal failure, COPD, heart issues,
          morbid obesity) will tell you this. A consistent percentage of
          these patients have mental health issues. Schizophrenia,
          borderline personality disorder, bipolar, oppositional disorder.

          Overwhelmingly, the patients with mental health issues are
          female. Whenever YTG gets to hear war stories from RNs,
          the ones about crazy behaviours are almost always about
          females. The exception is males with drug issues.

            I worked in a mental hospital for 25 years. (I am a female) I was always FAR MORE comfortable on the male wards in my caseload than on the female wards. The females were far more unpredictable and even overtly crazy.

            Even when dealing with a very mentally sick male patient—the other male patients were “watchful” and almost “protective” of me—-and I could feel it.

            I would NEVER automatically believe a woman’s accusations JUST BECAUSE she says so. The exception to that might be a woman recounting some deeply hidden abuses she experienced in very early childhood, especially at the hands of caretakers.

Whether you think I am on to something or am full of you know what look no further than grades and graduation rates in college.Its the …where you lack physically you develop mentally thingy. You can also see this evolution in physical abilities of Blacks verses Caucasian (although this is changing). Caucasians have relied more on using their mental capabilities over their physical capabilities therefor their physical prowess has become less than. Now apply this theory to women verses men in general. Back to the above post…yes women although more protective and nurturing can incorporate evil as a survival technique. THE END of my very un PC Junior analysis. Come to think about it Venus and Serena’s Dad was very wise to put them into a Caucasian dominated sport where women make a lot of money. No?

    • This was a major news story in the Dallas media market. Apparently she avoided charges because of a technicality. From the Dallas Morning News:

      “Officials say Dixon-Cole reported the alleged assault to Ellis County detention officers but not law enforcement investigators… Authorities in Texas have to check off certain criteria to charge someone with making a false report. The suspect must intend to deceive others and know the information is false, and the person receiving the statement must be a peace officer or federal special investigator conducting the investigation, or an employee of a law enforcement agency authorized to carry out the investigation.

      Detention officers are not peace officers, and they wouldn’t have the authority to investigate the offense, so complaining to them wouldn’t meet that requirement in the Texas Penal Code, said Brian Poe, a criminal defense attorney in Fort Worth.”

          Portland and Berkeley and a few other select places are special cases. In Boston there were free speech/antifa demonstrations too, but the police handled them effectively. Nobody got hurt, cars weren’t burned, windows weren’t smashed. If local law enforcement is told to stand down by liberal activist mayors to make a political point, and things get WWAAYYY out of hand, then you call in the National Guard. See Baltimore.

          Charlottesville is a special case too. The White Nationalists were represented in federal court by the ACLU, and granted a permit to march by a federal judge, to the protestations of VA and Charlottesville. **Two weeks before the riot** Department of Homeland Security **warned** McAuliffe and the D.B. Mayor that they had solid intelligence that both sides were planning on bringing weapons and engaging in violence, and that strong security measures were required. McAuliffe and the D.B. Mayor decided to ignore the advice of DHS, told local and state police to stand down on that day, and the rest is history. McAuliffe and the D.B. Mayor thought that it would be real cute if they made a political point — allow the march to get WAY out of hand, blame the White Nationalists as the instigators of the violence (i.e., there very presence), and tell everybody “See? We told you we shouldn’t let this group march!”.

          That girl’s blood is on the hands of McAuliffe and the D.B. Mayor as much as anybody else.

          It’s hard to whip up support for a Revolution when everybody’s too busy cashing paychecks.

  3. Democrats to regain House, Republicans will hold Senate says mid-term reports and polls.

    Democrats need to win an additional 24 seats to regain control of the 465-member House of Representatives.

    There are 250 campaign offices open throughout the country that were used in President Barack Obama’s political campaigns.

    These offices are now used by a group called Organizing for Action, a non-profit group dedicated to community organizing. President Obama heads this group.

    They are being used now to get Democrats elected nationwide.

    In two years, they will campaign to get Michelle Obama elected President.

      I remain registered as a democrat in CA for two reasons: 1.Probably less likely they throw my mail in ballot in the trash. 2. All my representatives are democrats (actually politically closer to communists). I think they pay more attention to my e-mails, since they are coming from a constituent registered as a democrat.

      When necessary, i will switch my party. They have “jungle primaries” in CA, so it doesn’t seem that important to register as a Republican at this point.

      If she is in the 99% then the 99% is grossly irresponsible, many likely with parents who didn’t save a penny for their kids’ education.

      My parents saved for mine. They paid the tuition, I worked while studying and paid for everything else. I was extremely frugal, I lived in tiny apartments and I had few personal belongings. When I went to grad school I was entirely on my own, I paid for everything. I was a teaching assistant but it barely covered my expenses. In my last year I took out a modest student loan and it was paid back a year after I graduated.

      I have zero sympathy for snowflakes or their parents who borrow like crazy and then whine when they have to pay it back.

        Good for you, covfefe999! Similar story to yours for our son.

        We have one of the large Land Grant universities in town. Pay-as-you-go tuition was affordable there and we told our son that we’d pay his tuition if he went there and lived at home. He covered his textbooks and gas for his car.

        He graduated in 2000 and was smart enough to get a Bachelor of Science (Industrial Design). He did not want a BA degree. He didn’t want to move out of the area after graduation so it took him a little longer to get his 1st job related to his degree; about 6 months.

        Every now and then, he mentions to my wife and me that graduating from college debt free was the absolute best thing we ever did for him.

        (When he graduated and we were done paying for school, my wife went out and bought herself a Lexus. It was cheaper than paying for his college! 😆😆)

        I agree with you about almost everything you said. However, I don’t think parents have any obligation to save for a child’s college education. My father retired before he was 40 after starting a successful business and then selling it. He told us kids we’d not be receiving the money as inheritance because we had to learn to earn it ourselves and he planned on doing good with his money, which he did. I had to earn my way through school and never borrowed money to do it. I worked multiple jobs to pay for my education, but it meant a whole lot more than if my parents had paid for it. I think that if we’re calling kids adults at 18, then they can earn their own way. I’m not opposed to parents choosing to help, but things mean a whole lot more when you’re paying the bill. If we’d raise kids to understand saving money from the time they get their first allowance to their first job, they’d be a lot better off and not end up starting their working careers with debt.

        Hubby’s parents moved out of their very modest but close to the beach house every summer for 12 years(and lived in the loft of their single garage with makeshift kitchen and outdoor shower!) to pay for his education. He went to school about 60 miles away, caught a ride home every weekend so he could take cooked food back to eat for the next week. Didn’t own a car until age 26, after military obligation, and no credit card until late 30’s.

        Well, I am a different kind of parent. I didn’t save for my kids’ college because I don’t owe them a college education. My kids were told from the time they were in grade school that if they wanted to go to college, they had to make good grades, get a job as soon as they were able to, save money, and get scholarships because I wasn’t going to pay for it. Pretty much they had to figure it out. Of course I was there to help but I wasn’t going to foot the bill for them. Three out of four of my kids went the military route…2 Marine Corps officers and 1 Navy officer. Uncle Sam paid most of the bills and the rest their father and I helped them out. Some of their expenses they paid back and others we gifted. My kids are very proud that they pretty much did this on their own and happy that they are serving their country. They know mama loves them but she isn’t going to financially support them through life!

      This is bs. I’ve got a Humanities degree — I had no debt (scholarships, worked my way through, still graduated BA at 21), and I had a job once I got out and went seriously looking. It wasn’t a fancy job; it wasn’t in my major, but it was a job (out of college most people do not get fancy, high paying jobs in their major…you get a job/jobs, and build a work history, then you get a job more to your liking).
      Girlie probably doesn’t want to go out and do that, and she probably hung around college for too long: 25 years old? If she doesn’t have at least a Master’s or have a work history showing she had to go to school part-time, it means she was a professional student for a while — that doesn’t impress employers.
      And only 20K in debt translates to about a year’s tuition: so she probably was a professional student who drug out her college days and racked that up over and above any scholarships or grants she had. Just the takeaway I’m getting from this.

          No offense intended, but debt is something only a person who is acting foolishly enters into. I worked my way through school, built my career in business, and bought my first house (and five since then) all while paying cash for everything. Sometimes it took longer to get things, but I didn’t pour my money into the hands of bankers through interest payments. I may have waited for some things before I got them, but I ended up paying far less and ended up with far more than others because my parents taught me that paying interest is foolish. Hard work and patience pay off. America is the largest debtor nation in the world (contrary to popular opinion and even our booming economy, we are bankrupt as we have more debt than we can pay off). But American have come to think debt is okay and buy according to monthly payments, not purchase price. It’s foolish and we do our children a disservice not teaching them otherwise.

            I’m no big fan of debt, but taking out loans for college, if you get a degree in the right thing, is a good idea. If I didn’t go to college, I would be making far less than now. Like I said in my post above, doing this today is much harder than 30 years ago because education is way more expensive.

            The key is to pay the loan off very quickly to keep interest payments to a minimum.

    Brilliance, class and dignity. Thank you, President Trump for your unwavering support of Justice Kavanaugh.

    FTA – It’s encouraging that, in his first appearance on the Supreme Court after that awful nomination process, Brett Kavanaugh showed no hint of apprehension that he was there on probation or that he wasn’t fully deserving of being exactly where he was. It’s clear that by Tuesday, his estimation of the accusations being hurled at him only days before was exactly what they deserved – forgotten and put out of his mind.

    Kavanaugh is a brilliant jurist, considered possibly the best qualified candidate ever nominated to the Court. The strength of his mind was evident Tuesday in the way he waded right in with his new peers to hash over the legal intricacies of cases, statutes, and precedents. He was made for this job.

    Trump makes new overtures to Democrats

    PPresident Trump is making overtures to Democrats about working together next year, a move that would mark a major shift in his approach to dealing with Congress but one that could prove necessary in order to secure big legislative achievements ahead of his reelection campaign in 2020.

      Infrastructure bill as well as tax cuts 2.0 next items of importance, doubt TRUMP will get much cooperation on those two items.
      Without jackass ryan in the way we may actually get some real cuts to spending and the size of federal government with new budget.

      I think we can count on Schumer to lead Senate Dems in opposition to everything.
      We need to change the filibuster rules if we want to achieve anything solid.

      I think we can count on the some of the usual Republican suspects in the senate to betray us every chance they get. Luckily most have quit, but some are still there and one more is joining from Utah.

      Being the power broker is just too much temptation when the vote is close. At least our President knows how to wheel and deal and stroke egos.

      And the House will play dead letter office for everything Trump wants, should the leadership party change.

      So VOTE and get all your like minded friends to vote with you. Keep both houses in Republican hands and make sure the numbers are never close enough that one jerk can ruin anything McStain style.

      And maybe, given a good enough whoopin’, the Dems will work with the President. Don’t count on it, but still give them the whoopin’ they deserve.

      A worthy quote from that link for those who don’t want to click on it….

      Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has said Dianne Feinstein and her staff will be investigated to determine their role, if any, in leaking Christine Blasey Ford’s letter to the press. We hope Cotton and his fellow Republicans’ disgust with their colleagues from across the aisle isn’t feigned or forgotten. The last thing we need right now is a return to the kind of collegiality that allows the Democrats to play the dirtiest game imaginable while Republicans blather on about their “principles.” Republican principles are only good insofar as they protect Americans from the disastrous effects of the Democrats’ policies and political appointments. More often than not, however, those “principles” serve only to protect GOP lawmakers from those terrible effects, leaving Americans twisting in the wind.

  13. CIA used Tom Firestone and Bruce Ohr to set up meetings with Oleg Deripaska in the law offices of Baker McKenzie.

    Tom Firestone is an attorney. He was former Acting Chief of the Law Enforcement Section for the Justice Department at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.

    His bosses were Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, and Peter Strzok.

    He is another common denominator in the takedown of President Donald J. Trump. Firestone is a Partner in Baker McKenzie, the second largest global law firm in the world with over $2.3 billion a year in billings

    Bruce Ohr used Baker McKenzie’s office in the District of Columbia 49 times to meet Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska from 2009 to 2016, according to John Solomon of The Hill.

    Solomon’s sources are Deripaska, his attorney, Adam Waldman, “and several FBI agents”

      I was shocked to see the front page of our “previous” Commie rag, The Virginian-Pilot. TRONC (now Tribune Publishing) bought them in the spring. Over the past couple of months, there has been more balance, not only in the Letters to the Editor section, but the constant SJW victimhood saturation of the paper appears to be gone.

      Referencing the front page article – it was about incumbent Scott Taylor being 7 pts ahead in a new local poll, reasonably reliable. This is the 2nd District. Dems’ big money has targeted VA-02, VA-07 (Dave Brat), VA-10 (Barbara Comstock) – bigtime. At first, I felt it was a psyops to scare the Dems into making sure they GOTV. But this far out from election day, I’m not sure it would have that much of an effect.

      While Virginia may well be a lost cause, if POTUS did a rally here, I think it would help a number of downticket races, and perhaps present a surprise for our Senate race – Corey Stewart vs Tim Kaine, who has no business being in office. Kaine’s son is a member of the Antifa.

        I have been reading about this since the ’70s and was at that time very concerned. Over time and reading papers and articles on the subject I began to see it as a political hoax intended as a means of controlling people with fear. Political Control is maintained by fear. We had a big fear of the Soviets that lasted until the wall fell. At that point a vacuum formed and the global warming narrative filled the space. Money flowed and science was corrupted and this fit with the leftest purpose to take control through fear. Is the climate changing: YES, it always has. Is the climate warming: yes, it has been since the little ice age. Does human activity change the climate: yes but generally locally (i.e. heat island) and globally very (!) slightly. The disastrous warming exists only in computer models tuned to various positive feedback and tied to the belief that CO2 is the primary cause. The predictions made by the CO2 theory have not materialized so the theory has been invalidated. Since the prediction is diverging significantly from the actual measurements the whole AGW structure is becoming questionable even to those not paying attention and it needs to be propped up. This means that the temperature measurements must be “adjusted” to match the model. Some of this is being caught. An interesting audit of the HadCRUT4 temperature record (major temperature database) shows significant errors. Very interesting:

          I am also an EE (& Physics major). Thanks for the reference. I’ll take a look when I have time.

          I saw a show a couple years back that explained how the ice ages work (based on procession of the earth’s orbit about the sun and about it’s axis of rotation with very nice diagrams. I’ll try to find it. I forget where we are in the cycle. Nowhere near a new ice age though, I do remember.

          What I can say from my own direct observations. 1. The glaciers in Iceland have receded quite dramatically over the last 30 years. 2. There are an enormous number of icebergs breaking off the southern coast of Greenland currently. In the summer, the coast off of Southern Greenland looks like a 7/11 Slurpie drink. This was not the case 30 years ago, or even 20 years ago.

          I am not saying that this is a result of increased CO2 content in the atmosphere, but I think that it is undeniable that there has been some sort of warming trend going on in recent years.

      Climate change IS real.

      The climate is Always changing. The climate has short term and long term patterns. Ex the climate is affected by the Sun’s cycles.

      We have had period of greater warmth (see climate of the Middle Ages or go back farther when we had no ice caps and tropical conditions at the in the artic regions) and we have had much colder conditions (see many ice ages periods).

      The hoax is the leftists insisting that climate change is man made and can be stopped/”fixed” by man, esp. via tax dollars. The current climate is not a set of permenant conditions and can not be frozen in place no matter how much we are taxed or how stifled our energy sector is.

      Climate Change is real but the claimed causes are fake and do not warrant crazy tax schemes the leftists are pushing or bad trade deals or other economically hampering deals pushed by the left. And this is what President Trump said.

            Thanks. I re-read it. The exchange seems too choppy to make final judgments. My point was that the “hoax” aspect as it relates to emotional manipulation and manufactured evidence (bad data in, bad data out) is very real, but I can see how it becomes confused with the term “hoax” as it relates to actual variations in the climate being real (and constant through history). It is confusing. But in-depth analysis and argumentation is not Trump’s style (which is fine, and one of the reasons for his success and popularity). Still, I think if he’d listed a few of the glaring dishonesties of the “climate change” movement (Michael Mann, the oceanographic weather readings showing no warming in 18 years, the massive corruption of data, the huge uptick in polar bear population, or any of the great points from “What’sUpwithThat”) he could have hammered home the “hoax” of it as a Narrative designed to fortify progressive politics and power.

        That’s correct. Climate Change is not well understood.

        Personally I think it’s scientifically dishonest to dismiss mad-made climate change because CO2 is indeed a greenhouse gas and it is indeed an emission from fossil fuels.

        The issue is that will it cause significant changes and what can we do about it? The answer to both questions IMO in no and nothing.

        Also keep in mind particulates (dust and smoke) can cool the earth.

        I’m not going to pretend to know what the President REALLY thinks about it, but my guess is that he doesn’t have a stone-set ideological view of it, as this tends to be how he operates on most issues.

          CO2 is plant food. Our Earth has greened amazingly because of the (extra?) CO2 in the atmosphere. When Earth warms, CO2 out-gasses from the ocean, at the very least. When cold, it “returns.” CO2 always lags heat and cold.

          Earth, during many glacials, has had mimimal CO2, down to frighteningly low levels – for life. We might even enjoy we humans adding some, rather than weeping and wailing.

          (Warming over the eons appears to be fast, fluctuating wildly, and dangerous to living creatures – See Washington State scab lands — not those caused by communists.)

          Earth is not as warm today as it was during the beginning of the Holocene. In fact, each cycle of warm and cold is becoming cooler. A nice aspect of return to glacial conditions from interglacials is that it is slow.

          Today we have our smarts and technology to help us, if those AGW-fraudsters do not get to have their way — destruction of developed societies and sovereign nations so that all of beautiful Earth belongs to them. The peasants, peons, slavies, all everypday-people can live in slums or worse, if they remain alive. We have plenty of history as to how this functions. Latest case study: Venezuela.

          I will take a beautiful, green Earth from CO2 with science and technology turned to focusing. There will be plenty in a glacial. (Think of awesome, beautiful Zion NP and surroundings, the product of one of the largest deserts ever on Earth (that exists — remember plate tectonics, a way of “recycling” earth.)

          With Earth’s surface made up of 70% water, why should there be droughts today anyway? Think control — keep prosperity to a minimum.

          The other area of technological development would be to minimize the damage of advancing ice sheets. Think we can do it? I do.

    Awesome thread by Imperator Rex that completely sums up the 60 Minutes interview.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/_ImperatorRex_/status/1051701602921279489

    Leslie Stahl’s trainwreck of an interview with Trump on @60minutes is useful as a window into the ignorance – as well as arrogance – of the elitist left.

    Stahl appeared confused on the facts and unable to understand the responses. Easy game for Trump

    One thing that really struck me – after I realised that she was sober – was how SIMPLISTIC and SHALLOW her understanding was.

    It’s a zero-sum circuitry:

    Obama – GOOD. Trump – BAD.

    Evidence and facts be damned.

    For example, she seemed incapable of accepting that Obama also separated families and children at the border, as well as detained kids in CAGES.

    It was cognitive dissonance. When Trump pushed the point home, she ran for the hills.

    Stahl then trotted out the Obama/Clinton Trump-Russia lie as fact.

    I mean, anyone with half a brain knows that there are YUGE questions about the entire narrative, by now.

    I know, I know. She’s a partisan hack. But this was a glaring example of how DUMB these people are.

    As Trump repeatedly tried to explain to Stahl, there is no YES/NO answer, when it comes to the most difficult and powerful job in the world.

    It’s often a choice between two bad options – ‘the least worst’. Of trying to work with evil people.

    The harsh reality of the world.

    In Stahl’s world of fawning adulation & narcissism aka #FakeNews, everyone has so much money, that they’ll never have to worry about the real world impacts of their ideology.

    All they need is never-ending narcissistic supply. Trump won’t give it to them – they hate him for it.

    So, Leslie Stahl will now return to her staff.

    Will the producer tell her the truth?

    ‘Leslie, that was utter shit. You made yourself and us look like total idiots. There are people on twitter who know more than us. Pack your bags.’

    No. Course he/she won’t.

    It will be a standing ovation and yet more fawning adulation, of course.

    ‘Leslie, you are a genius.’

    ‘Only Leslie could have taken on Drumpf and won.’

    ‘Today, we are ALL Leslie Stahl’.

    On and on it goes. A 24/7 circle jerk of group narcissism, based on lies.

    And yet another bottle of champagne will be cracked open as they toast each other & themselves, all using each other as a mirror to bask in their greatness.

    While Trump laughs his head off.

    The modern left is a #BonfireoftheVanities

    Stahl proved that, again.

    MAGA
    The end.

Followed my a few seconds of ERRRR, Then a few more UMMMMs. Followed by 3 and a half minutes of utter horseshit, incoherent, rambling, stuttering, horseshit. They probably only asked him 3 questions. Questions like what is your favorite color?, How about that weather lately? and my favorite…describe your feelings on blank. That guy couldn’t pass a job interview at a local bank, and yet he was installed as President..twice. He was also hailed as the most brilliant. I could be brilliant too, if I read off a script. Off script he was like Joey from Friends. I’ve seen 3rd graders with more depth. He was good at exactly one thing…rabble rousing. Well, and trying hard to f up america. It is a damn shame that Trump never got to actually debate this fool. He would of made him a drooling, stuttering, flagellant fool.

          Besides, I just had to see the part where he said, “I’m the President and your not”.

          Daniel 6:23 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.

          24 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.

        My complaint here is that when you only use “conservative” to describe anyone supporting and protecting representative government, free speech, and all the other freedoms, you do not identify what conservatives are conservative of. This leaves the term somewhat empty — except here at CTH — and available for use by way too many individuals with negative purposes (e.g., GOPers for years). I think we need more assertiveness around “conservative” so everyone who hears the label is absolutely clear.

      Sure hope PTrump takes on a much more aggressive role on immigration (legal and illegal) after the successful midterms, assuming lots more judges approved by the Senate in the meantime. I could care less about hosting diplomats from obscure countries or tweeting on foreign princesses I had never heard about (or ever care to). Americans are suffering and even dying at the hands of these invaders, so I guess I would call these rather frivolous “filler” activities until he can do REAL substantive work on the immigration front like he has done on the trade and other national security ones.

Doubt any tribe would accept me even if I had 1/16th blood given my family history in very early Ohio. My grandfather and uncles way back then were the fleetest white runners in the region who were hired as scouts for retaliating against the local tribes for surprise attacks. They were the only ones who could keep up with the retreating warriors so they could report back to the furious colonists for bloody revenge as recorded in the old history books.

        Re my comment above. Those of European ancestry and those of Native American ancestry have ancestors in common (east Asians do not) in our human past. I had always heard that Native Americans never could be made “good or reliable slaves” in the colonies or the U.S.

        Maybe there is something common in that ancient DNA that longs and works for freedom and entrepreneurial purposes.

        I have always believed that only the most freedom-loving individuals (haters of state authority, totalitarianism) migrated to the U.S. Perhaps there is something special in “our DNA.” The effort and courage it took to create this country was special. We are the only ones in world history that I know of to do so. I don’t think of it as “exceptionalism” as more like the model for all those in the world who want the same freedoms. I believe there are many.

        President Trump is calling all Americans of freedom’s heritage (includes all immigrant-citizens of a multitude of backgrounds) to join for this election, to begin MAGA with triumph and assertiveness. No more hamstringing (and worse) by marxist lawfare and weaponization of government.

The setup is perfect too, something carefully thought through I’m sure. The cretins have no microphone, he has a captive audience, camera only on him, with little chance that we’ll have the clown show that Sarah has to put up with every day. The WH press room has become simply an ambush point, and Trump has obviously rerouted his lines of communication to deemphasize it. Reagan did similarly, for those of us old enough to remember. Sam Donaldson made his bones shouting questions over the helicopter noise, and when Reagan didn’t want to answer, he simply cupped his hand over his ear and said he couldn’t hear the question. Trump has sculpted the Reagan approach and actually asks the questioner to repeat the question if he can’t hear it… “Say it”…. he’s not dodging questions, he answers them, while deflecting the inevitable nonsense. This guy really gets it.

      I was stationed in Germany twice during the Cold War- ‘76-78 and ‘83-86. Both times, our training scenarios worked like this:

      Day 1- the balloon goes up. All units deploy to their wartime defensive positions ( in the ‘70s w/ the 3D Armored Division it was the Fulda Gap, in the ‘80s w/ 32d AADCOM it was to positions around Bitburg Air Base).

      Days 2-4- Fight like crazy to slow the Soviet/East German juggernaut down (we were basically doorstops- our survivability was pretty near 0%).

      Day 5- Use tactical battlefield nukes to destroy the enemy while at the same time deploying units from the US to reinforce what was left of NATO units. End of exercise.

      We always knew the Soviets and their Warsaw Pact allies would most likely overrun us. That is an awesome thing to think about when you are 20 years old and stationed 40 miles from their most likely avenue of approach. The only other time in my life I felt that way was when I was in Korea during the 1st Gulf War. When I first arrived in country, I was told that the NKPLA had artillery sighted in on every American base there, and we would know when the balloon went up by artillery rounds landing on our camp before the alert sirens even went off. By then I was a thirty something NCO with a lot of experience (and a cocky SOB to boot- just ask any of my supervisors lol). We had a Hot Platoon that had to be ready or roll out the gate 24/7/365 in 30 minutes.

      NATO would not have been a blip. We, along with our comrades in the German and British Armies (BAOR) (and the Air Force- can’t forget the zoomies lol) would have attrited hundreds of Soviet and Warsaw Pact tanks and fighting vehicles prior to turning their Areas of Operation into glass.
