    The prepared remarks were pretty flat, but what a great performance by President Trump in the Q&A.

    I predict there won’t be too many teddy bears at the border this time around. Just a hunch. Then again, I could be wrong.

    I sure hope Gen. Mattis is up to the task of stopping a few thousand unarmed civilians. He’s never been up against an enemy like that, I hope he can do it, even if it takes the entire United States military — including the Navy — to somehow find a way to stop this diabolical horde.

    Did I mention they were unarmed civilians?

    Might just have to take off, and nuke the entire site from orbit.

    It might be the only way to be sure.

      The United States Space Corps (USSC). I didn’t realize they would have such immediate relevance.

      A person seeking help comes to the front door, asks to come in, and I decide whether to let them in or not. If you try to sneak in through the side window you will die on the window sill.

      I see people walking in mass. They don’t look like they have suffered much as they smile and seem to party along the way. What I do know about communism is that they TELL people what to do. There may be pay but the real pay may be in the hell they can expect if they aren’t successful in obeying orders from China or Russia.
      That said, they still need to be stopped and I don’t care which hell hole in Mexico they land in. I bet the borders will be stronger when they try to cross back to VZ.

        My point is that it’s beyond ridiculous, beyond absurd, that it requires a brain trust of generals to figure out how to stop… wait for it…


        If the local police force can’t stop a few thousand unarmed civilians, they should all be fired.

        If the MILITARY can’t stop a few thousand unarmed civilians, then we should just quit now. This is STUPID.

        I’m &#$% sick and tired of being lied to, gaslighted, propagandized and bullshitted. They’re UNARMED CIVILIANS!!!

        If unarmed civilians can take over the United States of America, then why the *&^$ don’t we all march on Washington and take our &^%$ing country back TONIGHT?!?

        Apparently “unarmed civilians” are such a powerful force that no military on the planet ever conceived of facing such a threat, much less stopping it.

        So let’s go.

        If this is the ‘reality’ we’re supposed to believe — that unarmed civilians CAN’T BE STOPPED — then what the *&^% are we waiting for?

    If our military lines up along our southern border to keep the caravan from coming in, you know there will be a big bunch of Hollywood leftists showing up to protest. What a zoo this could become.

      I love it when the Hollywood moonbats come flying out during a full moon. When they talk it removes all doubt about their education, intelligence and judgement. One is tempted to throw doggie treats to them and say get down and quiet.

      A big bunch of Hollywood leftists show up: I imagine a scenario where the “confusion” is such that the Hollywood leftists get the same “treatment” as the invading army. Fabulous!!!! er I mean soooo sorry.! fog of war and all that.

      Pur–hopefully there will be a long line of citizens/patriots with their firearms and lots of ammo. Like what happened at the Bundy standoff

    See the participant list. I’ll bet they get their asses chewed over recent security failure in Kandahar:

    US mil exit from AFPAK imminent, I would guess. Secretary of AF probably on the way out for blocking Space Force.

    Hoo-boy! Good thing these characters are on our side… as for Trump, effortlessly directing such formidable personae to his subtle ends, very few other U.S. Presidents were capable of dominating such a group.

    • nrgmizer says:

      Trump can dominate people if he wants to, but that is not usually his style. It’s more like managing such a group, or presiding over them as their Commander and Chief. He nearly always speaks well of staff, even on their way out. For those who openly betray him, that’s another story.


  10. Zabadak says:

    Treepers, please. Time to change the dialogue on this. This is an INVADING HORDE, not a freakin’ caravan. Let’s call it what it is and get it into the mainstream lexicon. No more PC crap. Stop playing their game. Please! We need to be accurate and direct.

    Is the President ready and willing to deploy the following…Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets, High Pressure Water ….all non lethal but painful repellents used in crowd riot situations. If not….and these criminal invaders reach the border the US will NOT be stopping them. If not….better get Mexico to stop them or its over. They will be coming into the US.

  12. Anybody know if we have perfected and possess an array of those gigantic sonic blasters? The ones that use high frequency audio pulses that can be directed at mobs to disperse them? Mount a bunch of them on all terrain vehicles, create a northern perimeter and flank them to the east & west and drive their asses back from where they came from.

    Whatever we do, we had better be working something out with Mexico NOW, because all this has to start several hundred miles south of our border. The invaders shouldn’t be allowed to even think they are going to get close to our border or we lose.

    Here’s an idea: declare martial law in every sanctuary state/city and have the military checking/eVerify citizenship of every resident, deporting everyone who fails. No hearings bs, just deporting. Let’s get serious. Illegals DO NOT have American civil rights, no matter how long they have been here illegally.

      These paid mercenary invaders want to create a Fake News victory. It is another attempt by Dems to win the mid-terms dishonestly, and will require martial law to shut the invaders down and deport them. The military has had experience in dealing with similar problems before.
