    Donald J. Trump
    Kevin McAleenan has done an outstanding job as Acting Secretary of Homeland Security. We have worked well together with Border Crossings being way down. Kevin now, after many years in Government, wants to spend more time with his family and go to the private sector….
    Donald J. Trump
    Replying to
    ….Congratulations Kevin, on a job well done! I will be announcing the new Acting Secretary next week. Many wonderful candidates!

    Rogue SDNY concocting a pretext to arrest the President’s lawyer:


    I think I mentioned this… they are not beneath doing this. Insurrection is at hand and the Marines should be sent in to clean house.

    This is the same SDNY which has done nothing with the Weiner laptop other than giving Weiner himself a slap on the wrist.

    Jason Whitlock on Tucker tonight. EPIC take down of Nike’s involvement and control over China messaging/racism labeling of Trump by sports teams.

    Right up the CTH alley of analysis and data drilled down to the finest MAGA points.

    If you’ve got the video please post!

    Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had!

    After 26 years of active duty and into his third year as a police chief a soldier published 12 of 15 of what he titled as; ‘A Soldier’s Lessons Learned’. They were to serve as the prelude to a book he was writing. The title of the book is meant to establish in a few words the overall conclusion of the book, which lays out in detail how the soldier arrived at each of the lessons learned. The original title of the book was; ‘Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had!’ Side Note: After B.H. Obama was elected to his second term the title was changed to: ‘Rape, Pillage, Plunder; American You’ve Been Had and It’s Your Own Damn Fault!’ Sadly, since Donald Trump came down that escalator Americans are being provided daily proof of the validity of the soldier’s lessons learned and the title of his book! Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

    Note: In an attempt to bring the lessons learned into the current political climate I have inserted a short comment where I deemed appropriate.

    1. Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.

    Note: Were this one not true I fear to imagine how many of us combat veterans would have already lost all control and commence to apply our skills against those who pose the greatest threat to the American people!

    2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.

    Note: Members of Congress take note. In my opinion you on the left have proven you are masters of Co-mission, while you on the right have proven you are the masters of omission! In short, all of you have proven you are cowards and trying to instill the Seven C’s of Leadership in any of you is a waste of time!

    3. The most cost effective personnel management tool for incompetent personnel assigned to leadership positions in combat units (and probably elsewhere) is “Fragging!”

    Note: This is a forbidden subject for veterans. If you desire details send a self-addressed envelope with a note from your doctor attesting that you have the emotional strength to deal with stress.

    4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

    5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

    6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

    7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

    8. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.

    9. My guns were always turned in the wrong direction.

    10. Washington, DC is the most target rich environment I have encountered in all of my years as a soldier/cop.

    11. If recalled to active military service the only position I will accept is; Commander, Revolutionary Forces.

    12. There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.

    13. American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more. (Added 2019)

    14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)

    Note: Sorry, not enough room herein to start to list the individual personalities whose activities will provide absolute proof of this statement.

    15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    Please, one final note: Contrary to the implications of several of my lessons learned, I have long ago abandoned any desire to negate (Negate, the procedure that the British SAS [Special Air Service] utilizes to transfer subjects from the persons of interest list to the persons no longer of interest list.) those of the any of four communities who would threaten and/or interfere with soldiers/cops actions to protect/serve the American people. No, these days I would support rounding up the most obnoxious of the communities, issuing each of them a tent and a bus ticket to California, and instructing them that if they leave California it better be on a sailboat (must consider the environment you know) heading to China!

    Bob, trump had nothing to do with your firing. In fact Fnc blessed you with many second chances. Using Shep’s classy exit to take this dishonest swipe at a bunch of good hardworking people is disappointing.

    Shepard Smith is leaving Fox News. I worked at Fox for six years. Shep was a REAL reporter. I attacked Trump daily. My firing was a setup up by people inside & outside Fox. With Shep gone Fox Is no longer a News network. It’s run by Trump Sadly it will go down with him.

    Steve Bannon is back with Trish Regan tonight.
    Bannon says it is time for the Deplorables to mobilize again.

    Bannon says Deplorables sat out 2018 and got beat in the House of Representatives. If Deplorables do not want to see their country go the way of the violence at the Milwaukee Rally last night, the Deplorables need to mobilize once again and get out the vote! 6:37
    Bannon is correct, once again.

    I just finished reading two rather interesting articles on Zero Hedge. Both brought up the very interesting corelation between Congress (Dems/Rino’s) intensifying impeachment pressure on President Trump and the President’s Syria/Iran policies.

    Basically if President Trump decides to disinguage from the Middle East, Congress immediately ramps up impeachment pressure on the President until he changes his stance. They have so far done this twice forcing the President to back track.

    However this third time Congress seems to have jumped the gun on impeachment.

    So now President Trump has basically said O.K. you have ramped up the impeachment pressure, for no apparent Middle East reason, your abviously going to try and impeach me beifore the 2020 elections anyway, I have nothing left to lose now, so I might as well use the opportunity to pull out of northern Syria which is popular with both Dem/Rep non-war voters!

    Notice even AOC opposes President Trump’s pull out of Syria! Notice also Mitchell’s said he would have to take up the House’s impeachment in the Senate.

    Hopefully SD will also address the ebb and flow of impeachment with Middle East policy.

      Troublemaker10: What I really liked about the blackouts was all those green Californians with solar panels and Tesla cars, couldn’t use them to provide power to their homes! Serves them right!
