Transgenders should not be allowed in the Military.

The military exists to kill people and break their things. What possible benefit does allowing Transgenders to enlist, have towards our ability to wage war? Serving is not a RIGHT. It is a privilege, and it is by necessity, highly selective. There are a myriad of reasons you can’t or shouldn’t be allowed to serve. Having a mental disorder is a pretty good one.

Civilian courts ruled yesterday that we have to allow people who think their chromosomes don’t matter and have a high rate of depression, self harm, and suicide… into the military. And then they’ll have access to millions of dollars of military equipment that spreads death and destruction on our enemies.

They actually ruled against the Military, who says they don’t want them. Because a bunch of civilians in robes know SO MUCH more about the Military than those who have spent a lifetime serving and now command it.

Oh heck, let’s just admit it. The courts have become so politicized these days, that they would overturn the ‘ban’ just to thumb their noses at Trump without caring about the ramifications of their decisions. I’ll point to the Bowe Bergdhal and Kate Steine Trials as my examples of highly politicized cases and Trumps involvement.

But let’s go on…

Transgenders have a 41% rate of suicide compared to the national average of 4.6%. But sure, let’s drop them into a job where you WILL be bullied and hazed upon entry to the fraternity. It’s part of the Spirit De Corp. If you make it through basic training or boot camp and still suck, you will be hazed even more. Relentlessly. Until you leave or fix yourself.  Besides, it’s a well known fact that “Pain Retains” and “Through Pain comes Discipline”.

Even if you don’t suck, you will still be hazed. Until you ‘level up'(promoted) and get to haze others – it’s a vicious circle like that. I was never much good at it, and I liked almost all my guys.

But if you want to bring up bullying(hazing) leading to a higher rate of Suicide, you are supporting people joining a culture with a high rate of suicide already.  The Military suicide rate is twice as Civilians. And Transgenders are TEN TIMES higher than Civilians. So what does that make it? Like an 82% rate? I dunno. It’s math. But frankly, you are aiding transgender suicides by supporting this instead of supporting them getting mental health help.

Then there is the highly stressful rigors of combat and pre-deployment or just regular training and field ops or plain ole home life. It’s a life full of stress, misery, divorce, midget strippers, alcohol abuse, violence, money problems, and poor personnel decision making. It’s hard enough being a rational heterosexual male in the military as it is.

You’re gonna be bored, miserable, hot, cold, wet, and pissed off. You’re gonna argue, harass, and brawl with each other. It’s going to happen. And if you don’t buck up, you’re gonna get it even worse. Because the emotionally, physically, and mentally weak need to be weeded out.

And then there is showering. I showered with 70 other guys in Boot Camp. Then another six years with sometimes less, sometimes more. I saw a lot of weeners. You get used to it. Ironically, penis size jokes are rarely told. It’s hard to lie to someone when everyone knows what your packing.

So don’t think women acting like men, and men acting like women, will somehow go unnoticed. If you’re a transgender, you’d better get used to being naked in front of the opposite sex. But you probably want ‘safe spaces’ and private toilets and showers eh? Sadly, the military will probably be FORCED into creating these. Because why spend money on bullets and body armor when we can buy extra crap for a handful of people who feel different.

And I’m going to be straight up. Transgender Sexual Assault rates are 50% in the Civilian world. You’re going to be a woman (pretending to be a man) tossed into a group of horny, alpha males, with a high libido and love for drinking, fighting, and fornicating. I don’t believe the military has a Rape Culture, but there are plenty of dirt bags in it. The military does a good job with hammering these people into Leavensworth Prison. But they are out there.

(By the way, in the Marine Corps Boot Camp we were constantly instructed on morals and values…as well as symptoms of Pregnancy. Heh.. But they didn’t want us to be a bunch of mindless baby killers using flame throwers on huts because someone said so. They wanted us to do the right thing, all the time.)

So now we’ve a mess of issues that the military is forced to address now. And this opens the door to constant complaints like, “He hazed me because I’m a woman with a penis.” When really, you probably suck and deserve it.

But yeah, sometimes it’s gonna be because your transgender. Not saying it’s right, but it’s gonna happen.

Because people who stand out, get hazed the most.

Like Kylo Ren, I bet he got hazed to no end because of his goofy looks and giant ears. But now he’s a Marine Corps hero with a Lightsaber.


In my arguments against supporting the “Transgender Revolution”, this is the example I often use:

How is anyone looking in the mirror and thinking they are a man trapped in a woman’s body any different from someone suffering from Anorexia? They look into the mirror, and think that their 5’7″ frame at 82lbs is FAT. Both of you’re perceptions of reality is distorted, and it can be helped. But it only hurts you more when we tell you, yes – you are FAT or you are the opposite gender of what your Chromosomes say. Simply because we want to be ‘inclusive’ and ‘accepting’ and don’t like hurting people with truth that may save their lives.

Ultimately, pushing for acceptance and inclusion of Transgenders into society, instead of helping them overcome their problems, is morally and biologically wrong. But fools tend to think themselves wise so they shout us down as bigots and hate mongers and what nots.

So good job. Bravo. Thanks for weakening our military with your progressive ideology of ‘acceptance’.

If I could reach through the internet and slap you, I would.

And for those of you who would like to argue, I’ll point you in this direction first.




Conspiracy or Gross Incompetence – The Vegas shooting STILL STINKS.

I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but here we are, two months after the biggest Mass Shooting in history. 58 dead and 527 wounded – and barely any solid information being given to the public.

I’ve talked this over with many people, and right from the beginning things didn’t add up.  Which is to be expected in the first few days, but over time the questions continued to add up and the few (often changing) answers we got only ADDED to the confusion.

So at some point you have to ask, is there a cover-up, or is this gross incompetence on part of the law enforcement that is handling it. Or is it a mix?  Is it just the Political Hacks scattered through out the government and law enforcement in Vegas, trying to hide any inconvenient facts while they push for Gun Control? I bet if he had a NRA or FOX News sticker on his car – we’d know about it. But if he had ANTIFA posters on his walls and Obama’s Dreams of his Father on his nightstand, we would never know.

There are so many questions, it’s hard to pick a start.

How many People were Actually Shot?

58 dead and 527 wounded. How many were trampled or hurt? 22,000 people is a heckuva panicked stampede. Were all 58 shot to death? Were all 527 wounded from gun fire? How many were physically wounded in the frantic trapped frenzy of tens of thousands of people confined to a killing ground with only a few exits?

Where’s the Vegas Security Videos?

This is VEGAS. In a high rollers Hotel, and the best film footage we have of this bozo is him falling down in 2012. So you can find and release that, but you can’t show us any film of him lugging the “over ten suitcases” containing dozens of guns and tons of ammo through the front doors? He had to have shown up on dozens if not hundreds of cameras scattered around the area, and not a single one has been leaked to the press? It was mentioned they ‘suspect’ he used the freight elevator – How do you suspect and not know? It should be on tape!

Where’s Security Guard Campos?

There is so much stink on this guy, it’s ridiculous. The guy sneaks out moments before a press conference, disappears for DAYS, then reappears on a COMEDY SHOW to talk about what happened. On Ellen Degeneres… Seriously? Apparently you weren’t paid, were you or your Hotel Employer afraid of tough questions? Was a scripted setting needed?

Not to mention when he disappeared, he went to MEXICO after the shooting. We don’t know when, but we know he came back a week after the shooting.  WHY? What was down there? And why in the world would the Law Enforcement LET HIM LEAVE? Key Witness here, sure bub, go to Mexico where there’s a full blown drug war going on and piles of dead tortured bodies being found daily. Enjoy the margaritas – just be back when we need you.

Does anyone even know where this guy is anymore? Does he have anything he wants to say? In the Ellen Interview, she says he won’t speak of this again. Why not? Is the Hotel/Police banning him from making statements or is he refusing to answer anymore questions on his own?

And the Timeline:

And then there is the timeline, so no video footage shown of what went on in that hallway. Weird and unlikely. But should be solid proof of what the changing timeline was. First Campos gets shot during the spree and that’s what stops it. Second, he got shot less than a minute before the spree began. Third, he was shot SIX FREAKING MINUTES BEFORE the spree. Six minutes. In a CASINO hotel room. Where’s the Security? Where’s the police? How do you not get this correct when you report it to the media? Yeah, yeah, Fog of Post-War Chaos. But this is such a simple, standard thing to have ironed out.

Speaking of the Police and the Timeline:

I’ll give some credit here. You get a shooting report, you get some cops on site, then all hell breaks loose. You get swamped with hundreds of 911 calls from varying locations that makes it sound like a coordinated attack from multiple places.

Police arrived on the 32nd floor at 10:17 when the firing stopped at 10:15. Then they moved down the hallway clearing every room on the way with a master key, and not hitting the suite until last at 11:20 by breaching with explosives. Even though the room had already been pinpointed by outside officers, as well as Campos who I’m assuming – had eyes on the hallway the entire time he was laying in one of the doorways.

So why take so long to hit the room? Maybe just procedure. I don’t want to be a Monday armchair quarterback, but why not hit the room first since you knew a shooter was in there? This is just a little strange to me.

The Single Fired Shot:

So first the police say no shots were fired – only to come out over a month later and say “Well, actually, a law enforcement officer fired his weapon in the room.”

At WHAT? Shifty, gun smoked filled shadows? This is interesting since Paddock ‘shot himself in the head’. THIS is why there are conspiracy theories. Was he actually dead when the police entered the room? Why take your word for it? For weeks you said no one fired, then you said they did. This is such a SIMPLE thing to get straight at a press conference. Why did you not tell the truth of the matter? No one can blame the cop for being on edge after blowing open a mass murderers door after clearing rooms along a hallway that probably resembled buildings in Fallujah. So why not admit it?

This picture was leaked, supposedly of an interior door that’s been shot through. Who was being shot at inside? Is this the door between rooms? It doesn’t appear to be the hallway door. And why does he have a rifle on bipod in the bathroom/kitchen?


Leaked Photos:

Speaking of which – the Crime Scene photos? What. The Heck. This investigation is so tightly under wraps that not a single second of video has been leaked, but you managed to let a set of crime scene photos get leaked to the press, of the shooters face and a bunch of guns and ammo. That’s just strange.  Who leaked it? I’m sure you have a list of every single person who walked into that room, did you check their phones? Or was it an intentional leak to guide the narrative? There SHOULD be intense scrutiny for a crime scene photo of the shooter with a gunshot wound to the head being splayed out across the media as to who allowed it to leak. That’s the kind of stuff people get fired over.

The Missing Hard Drive:

This bothers me, at one point some talking head said that ‘maybe the laptop never had a hard drive in it’. Yes, Genius, in addition to lugging thousands of pounds of firepower and ammunition into a hotel suite, he lugged a DEAD LAPTOP so he could stare at it’s BLANK SCREEN.

Sheesh. Where is it? What’s being done to find it? Was it destroyed? What was thought to be on it?

The Note with Ballistic Data:

The shooter has a piece of paper with handwritten ballistic information on it that was near the smashed out window. Okay, let’s assume no wind was blowing through a THIRTY-SECOND floor window and the physics of that effect on a small piece of paper. (Especially when it’s so conveniently staged looking, with a roll of tape barely on top of it and pen next to it by his legs.)


Apparently he tried to buy a large amount of tracer ammunition from a dealer, but they were out. So he wanted to see where his rounds were hitting. This would have pinpointed the lone shooters location and further reduced his ability to escape. Also tracers tend to be inaccurate as well, as they burn up in flight and tend to zing off in random directions, the further you are shooting the less you are going to get hits.

So he writes down some ballistic data of wind, distance, and drop.

Well, assuming all his guns, including the AK, were in 5.56 or .308, you’ve got two different rounds coming out of different length barrels with different rates of twists and different sight systems(optics, iron sights, scopes, etc). That’s not taking into consideration the bullets themselves, is he using the same stuff? Or does he have a mix of various bullet weights and type?

All of this adds to variance. ESPECIALLY the sighting systems.

But shooting 500 yards into a large 22,000 crowd that covered several football fields, none of this was needed other than the range or hold over. (Aim above them and known that the rounds will hit below that) His killing field was MASSIVE.

To put the range in perspective, in the Marine Corps, we learned to make hits on man sized targets with IRON SIGHTS at 500 yards. Kids who have never shot before learn to make this shot after a couple of weeks at the range. That’s on a single target. Try 22,000 targets massed together. This guy had scopes, full auto, and thousands of rounds.

Ballistic Data has it’s use in accurate fire, but for his purposes it was unnecessary. He’s using a bump stock, which mimic’s full auto – Full auto by nature is less accurate than semi-auto. As we know, he was magazine dumping and firing as fast as possible which reduces his accuracy. He fired something along the lines of 1,100 shots in ten minutes. That ain’t a rate for accurate fire.

So why did he have it? Either he knows enough about shooting that he knows he doesn’t need it, or he knows nothing and assumes it matters but can’t properly apply it. Which is it? How did he get it anyways? Did he use his Laptop?  With the pen next to it, it looks like he wrote it at that spot. Did he copy it off something or write it down from memory – in which case, why write it down if it was memorized?

So – It gives off the impression of a staged prop. Or are they lying about the information on the note, and it’s actually a suicide/confession note they are keeping mum about it for investigation purposes? No solid answers, and the one we got doesn’t make sense. All we can do is speculate.

Was he Alone?

Numerous witnesses said there were multiple shooters. An audio analysis reports that he shot 280 rounds in 31 seconds at one point… If he was using Beta Mags, drums that hold 100 rounds, he reloaded twice and almost emptied three of them in under 31 seconds. Without a single jam/failure to feed/failure to extract. The things aren’t the most robust magazines ever, and it’s a lot of weight hanging off the magazine catch. Very unlikely, especially without melting the gas tube on an AR15.  But maybe he had three guns with one on each of them…? However, we had hundreds of vets in the killing field who were positive there was more than one shooter and many others who thought it was belt fed full-auto that sounded like ‘talking guns’. (When two belt fed guns/teams alternate firing to conserve ammo and keep from overheating the gun) How do we know for sure he’s the only one? Unfortunately, we can’t trust the information out of Vegas to clear this up because they are coming across as grossly incompetent. But CONVINCE US. Where they mistaken? Let’s talk about this.

Why TEN MINUTES and was there an Escape Plan?

Why did he stop? It wasn’t Campos or the Police. He had a TON of ammunition in there, he could have kept going and slaughtered hundreds before his room was breached. He had surveillance on the hallway, he knew there was no real effort to stop him.  Did he make any effort to escape? His car had tannerite, which is an explosive target plus ammonium nitrate which can be used to make bombs. But it wasn’t rigged to blow… What was the suspected purpose? Supposedly he had protective equipment in his car as well and a body armor/gas mask in his room. That sounds like he was ready for a confrontation and possibly attempt to escape.

The Door on the 32nd Floor:

Lots of misinformation was spread about this, originally the door was locked open, then closed, then open and closed.  But the Ellen interview cleared that up. Campos said he came up the fire escape stairs, and saw the door was blocked from opening. And called Security to send an Engineer up to look at it. Then he went back downstairs, and came up through the elevator on the opposite end, walked down the long hallway and saw metal brackets holding the stairwell door shut. He walked away and was fired upon about halfway down the hall. This makes sense, the shooter funneled any response to approach him from the hallway that leads directly to his door. But depending on the mechanism that was blocking the door, it seems like he didn’t have an escape plan in place. Unless he wanted to run to the only exit, the elevator on the far side of the floor.

The Surveillance of the 32nd Floor:

Of another note, we were told Paddock had cameras set up to monitor the hallway. And opened fire on Campos as he walked away from the Hotel Suite and locked door next to it. Where are these tapes? What’s on them? HOW was he viewing them? Was it through his disabled laptop? Or did he have a viewing monitor?

The Engineer and the Woman on the 32nd Floor:

At around the same time Campos gets shot in the leg and the guy is dumping magazines through the door, the Engineer sent to check on the locked door arrives through the same Elevator on the far side of the hotel. According to Campos this guy makes it halfway down the hallway before he yells at him to get back and the guy opens fire again, narrowly missing him(Or he never stopped firing, vague here).  His part in the Ellen Interview is pretty much limited to a couple sentences. He says he heard what sounded like a jack hammer that he figures was gun shots. But I’m assuming he wasn’t shot at until Campos yells at him to take cover. At which point, he ducks and bullets fly by his head.

So. Did the Engineer come up during the middle of the shooting into the concert? Or did Campos’s yelling/cameras alerted the gunman to start shooting at the Engineer? And why bother stopping shooting into a huge crowd to run to the other side of the room and focus on one unarmed guy walking down the hallway? How does this fit into the continuously changing timeline?

And Campos makes it sound like the firing was continuous, which it couldn’t have been. Unless the Engineer was oblivious to the dozens of rounds being fired straight at him down the hallway. I’m assuming this is a just miscommunication, and the shooter opened fire down the hallway twice.

But did he not notice the impact of bullets all along the hallway and into the far end by the elevator? Hundreds of rounds supposedly, how did he NOT see the bullet holes and damage? OR the shot up suite door at the far end of the hallway he was walking towards?

Don’t make no sense.

Now, a woman comes out of her room and almost walks into the gun fire at some point, and once again Campos saves her by yelling at her to get back.

So the Engineer and the Woman, two more key witnesses on the floor at the time of the shooting. We have a little bit from the Engineer on the Ellen Show, but what about the mystery woman? Did she see anything suspicious? Or notice anyone with Paddock? Did she ever interact with him and could state on his mental state at the time of their conversation? Silence.

The VIDEO in the Room:

Reports came out that he was filming himself shooting. Where is this footage? What’s on it? Does it show the before and aftermath of the shooting? Does it show the officers coming through the door and one of them firing the later-reported single shot? Does it show Paddock giving a statement or killing himself? Does it show anyone else in the room at any time who may have seen the stacks of guns and ammo?

The TWO rooms/TWO firing positions/And The Drilling:


Campos mentioned he heard what he thought was drilling. The County Sheriff said he was trying to drill next to the doorway, to either place a video camera or make a firing port. Well strange, cause once he shot through the door he pretty much made a firing port.

Then there is the two busted windows. Which leads credence to either two shooters, or why people thought there were two shooters. Did Paddock fire between the two? Did he only use one? Why did he make another port if he didn’t use it? This also brings up the question of were there sensors on the windows to report to security if one broke? And how long did it take to break the windows? I’ve never tried shattering a 32nd floor window with a baby sledge hammer, but I assume it isn’t easy.

But why two rooms? It appears that he could smash a window out a dozen feet away and have a similar vantage point for firing without having to run into another room. Was it to secure another possible entrance into his suite?

What was found in the other room? Anything? More guns and ammo? Possibility of another shooter?

Information would be nice to have.

The Girlfriend:

What does she know? Does anyone really believe she had no idea? She was conveniently out of country when the shooting was going down and beforehand he wired her $100,000. Which is an odd amount for a multi-millionaire who is about to commit mass murder and most likely die afterwards. So why limit it? Was that all he could legally send? And the narrative changes here, at first it was reported she was concerned for his mental health, later it was reported that she thought he was fine. Supposedly she was something of a ‘caretaker’, yet she was out of the country constantly. Why was she out so much? Was it to visit her mom? Or was she traveling to multiple foreign countries?

The ISIS connection:

ISIS claimed responsibility. This is rather odd considering nothing has come out about Paddock ties to radical Islamic terrorism. Sure, they may just be acting like the opportunistic vultures they are, grabbing on lone wolfs acts and saying they inspired it. But since this has no obvious connection, why would they say that? A rich white dude isn’t their normal killer type. But what about the traveling girlfriend? Any connection with her?


What was it? Was it mental duress? Accepting the sort-of-sort-of-not word from his Girlfriend, he maybe had some mental problems. His brother couldn’t think of any motive, he thought he was fine. Did he have financial problems he couldn’t overcome? The autopsy showed no brain abnormalities that would lead him to suddenly turn violent. People don’t do things without motives, especially life changing(and most likely ENDING) decisions.  Like committing mass murder with a high likely hood of being engaged and killed by police. We got a little information from a hooker, not being the most trusted of courses, that he was an angry white dude.

The Break in of the Paddock Residence AFTER the shooting:

A week after the shooting, Paddock’s house is broken into. And… nothing. Lots of mention of it in the news, and law enforcement investigating. And supposedly it was under security as a crime scene. But multiple intruders entered the building and their intent is unknown. Supposedly nothing was taken, well was anything planted? Match the crime scene photos taken after the raid on Oct 3rd with the after photos taken on Oct 11th when it was realized it had been broken into. And compare.

So, inside a retirement community development. No video, no information, no arrests or suspects, no motives.  Not a single follow-up report.

This is suspicious as hell.

Speaking of The House:

We know he had a bunch of guns and ammo.  Don’t get caught up in ammo count, the media loves to spazz out on that number. As if the higher the ammunition count owned, the more nefarious the person. But a single box of .22’s for $15 can hold 550 rounds.It’s not a big surprise for an average weekend shooter to have ten thousand rounds or more of ammo at a given time. Especially when it’s cheaper to buy in bulk or on sale, and they shoot a lot of little 22s. So a high round count rarely means anything.

But what else?  Did he have other planned information, escape info, another computer with a search history? What is on his emails? There should be a wealth of information here.

NOTHING. No news on what was found other than some guns and ammo.


Ultimately – I’m no loon. I try to be rational. But this thing STINKS, and the less answers we have that make sense the more we speculate. And no one seems to really CARE to answer them, and at this point, the only ones demanding answers are the victims families and survivors who are suing.  Perhaps when their case goes to court we will get details that make sense.


Two AWESOME things worthy of mention.

First, Black Friday sold over 203,086 guns. That’s enough to arm the entire glorious Marine Corps and the little Coast Guard, with some left over. Yet, strangely, we won’t witness 200,000 plus murders occur this week, or next month, or next year, or the next decade. So weird! I thought guns = mass murder?

Second, Congress has FINALLY passed a bill allowing military surplus 1911’s to be sold via Sweet! I hope mine has notches carved in it from all the dead Nazis and Imperialists it slayed in RIGHTEOUS 1940’s AMERICAN FURY!

A picture got put on the internet today from a bin of 1,500 guns that were being prepped for transfer to the CMP. They look pretty good, with some nice WWI 1911’s in the mix. So far, as you can read in the link below, the picture checks out as being authentic.

The first rumor I’ve seen is they are going for $900. Which seems steep considering that M1 Garands are almost all sold out, and Service Grade Garands are going for $730.  But who knows, the CMP doesn’t make much money anymore since Clinton took their public funding away because he hates guns and freedom and apple pie and his wife. (Can’t blame him on the last one.) So maybe they will be stupid expensive. It’s not like there is a lot of military surplus guns left that can legally be imported until we over-turn this annoying full-auto ban. At any rate, the super rare ones will end up in their auction going for lots of monies. So save your pennies.

So you wanna be a Communist in America, eh Comrade?


A poll came out that nearly half of millennial’s would rather live under a Communist or Socialist government than America.

Link to Poll by Victims of Communism.Org


Well, the 100 million people who died under Communist rule in the 20th Century would tell you how horrifically STUPID you are… if they could. But they can’t, because they are dead. And when they were alive, they couldn’t then either, because they’d be killed for complaining. Because that’s the Communism you love so much.

And in a sad twist of irony, over 71% of you Millennial morons couldn’t even define what Communism is. I guess that’s what we get from public education, liberal indoctrination , poor parenting, and a lack of corporal punishment. This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so… in Trumps words… SAD!

But I’ll help you out:

What is Communism?

noun: communism; noun: Communism; plural noun: Communisms
  1. A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

Somehow, people read that and think – hey sounds nice! I can do nothing and get everything I want! (Gee, who does THAT sound like in America today?)

No, your a slave, another irrelevant cog in the churning Communist machine.  But the ruling elite can get and do what ever they want without fear of reprisal – they can crush dissidents and political opponents by fear, intimidation, torture, and execution.

The ‘Free Speech’, that you like to hide behind while you act like butt holes, while you burn the American Flag, kneel during Anthems, block off roads, protest, chant obscenities, dress up like vaginas, and wave crude home made signs about how horrible America is – Doesn’t apply in Commie-Land. If you aren’t squished by a tank, you’ll be snatched away with a black sack over your head to be tortured in an undisclosed location before being dumped into a mass grave with a bullet in the back of your head. Your family will never know what happened to you and they’ll be too afraid to ask.

That Electoral College that you ignorantly believe ‘cheated you’ out of your Hillary and Al Gore ‘Popular Vote’ wins? You ain’t got to worry about that no more. You probably won’t even have to worry about voting either, because it’s either suspended or a phony election with predetermined results. You have no political power, you have no voice, or choice in the direction of your country.

The Free Tuition you want, its free alright, but its indoctrination. You don’t get to study Feminist Ideology or Gender Fluidity or whatever stupid sham of a degree you pick. You are FORCED to study what the government chooses. Because indoctrinated and ignorant masses are easy to lead. Speaking of which, if you are one of these evil professors preaching this Communist/Socialist crap – chances are you would be the first to dragged off to a gulag. That’s a labor camp, where your soft, supple hands and your haughty ideology won’t last long as you starve and work yourself to death. Because Professors and the ‘Higher Learned’ are direct threats to those in power. But I’m sure you Pinko-Commies will be more than grateful to lick their boots… assuming you (Like Bernie Sanders) ever find the courage to move to one of the countries you so highly praise. Or if you continue to drive our Country in that direction, and by some strange fluke people like me and hundreds of thousands of others with guns no longer have a say.

But good luck in Venezuela, though, (Bernie Sanders favored example of Socialism) they are eating cats and dying in the streets. Professors are turning to prostitution to survive and people are selling their kids in hopes someone else can provide for them.

And Universal Healthcare? Sure, you can have that. Even though the hospitals have a hard time getting basics like clean water or ibuprofen, and the mortality rate goes way up and life expectancy plummets like a rock. Oh, you need medicine, cat scans, MRIs, dialysis, cancer treatment, or band aids? Good luck. And technological advancements? They don’t exist unless they are government funded, and the government don’t care to spend millions experimenting through trial and error to find a cure then GIVE IT AWAY FOR FREE. (That’s why medicine costs money, because of the HUGE investment that is spent on the numerous failures before they get a hit.)

Then you pray and hope, that a country as great as America steps in, stomps your dictators face first into the mud, and hands you the freedom that WE paid for with OUR BLOOD.

But don’t worry, we don’t expect anything in return. The Liberals won’t let us take your oil as reparations for the tax money our citizens paid to fund the mighty military machine that freed you. And you Freedom Hating brainwashed losers will probably just elect the next Tyrant that offers you bread and circuses to distract you from your eventually re-enslavement anyways.

So think about all this while you whine about the evils of Capitalist Imperial America on Facebook and Twitter with your computers or smart phones while wearing your Che Guevara berets and Karl Marx t-shirts. All of those being products that would never exist anywhere except a Capitalist Republic like ours. Because Profit motivates people, and Profit creates innovation and advancement. Socialism/Communism is stagnation. And oh my goodness, what would you do without the latest $1,000 Iphone X?!?!

Sadly, an unfortunate consequence of Capitalist Innovation, is that it allows you ignoramuses to voice your ignorance to the world. Just because you can speak, doesn’t mean you should. Kind of like voting, just because you can vote, doesn’t mean you should Forest Gump your way into the polls and cancel out our EDUCATED votes with your STUPIDITY based off a celebrity opinion you read in Cosmopolitan.

Rush Limbaugh sums up what is happening in our society, and why the left pushes this crap in schools and society.

(If you read to the end, I have a picture of Taylor Swift to show you!)

We Are on the Cusp of a Second Civil War

America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.

I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.

Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If you’re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.

None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. Antifa didn’t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.

They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing — and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, it’s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. That agenda is to distort, erase, and impugn our history. It is crucial if they are to succeed. Because, you see, if enough Americans can be persuaded that America, as founded, is unjust — if enough Americans can be persuaded that America as founded is inherently racist and immoral and illegitimate — then it will be all that much easier to erase America as founded.

The two go hand in hand, which is the objective of all of these groups on the left. Whatever they’re called and wherever they go and however they organize and whatever their day-to-day purpose, their objective is to erase the history of America. It’s to restate it, to recharacterize it in such a way as to convince a majority of Americans that their country is illegitimate and has been from the get-go — is unjust and racist and bigoted and has been from the get-go.

If enough Americans can be persuaded of all of that — that America is inherently racist, that America is and has been a lie — then it’s over. That is the objective, and we are in the midst of it. Sometimes you’re so close to the forest you don’t see the trees. That’s what we are in the midst of here: An ongoing effort to erase America by discrediting the entire premise of our culture, our history, our founding. The objective is to create in as many American minds as possible that America as founded is not worth defending. Serious times.

This is a very, very serious effort that is underway. Sadly, it has a lot of allies. It has a lot of people helping it that ought to be opposing it, but they are choosing what they think is the path of least resistance, which is defined by the media. You’ve got several Republicans who I believe are unwittingly participating in the effort to cast America as indefensible, particularly with Donald Trump as president. Trump as president is, in their view…

The attacks on Trump, the characterization of his presidency, is designed to show how really flawed America is. That somebody like this could be elected, that means it’s time to get rid of the Constitution. That means it’s time to get… Whatever made Trump possible, it’s time to change it and get rid of it. This is very, very serious stuff happening here, and it has the aid and support of the media, which means it has the aid and support of the worldwide left and the Democrat Party.

America’s profound morality, kindness, widespread prosperity, and design for equal opportunity should be self-evident. But that assumes that factual, historically accurate reporting in education is taking place, and we know that it isn’t. It is a shame and a near crime that the profound morality and greatness and kindness and widespread prosperity and equal opportunity that is America isn’t known. It is a crime that those characteristics of our country are in the process being recast and erased. We are getting hysterically inaccurate reporting.

We have been in the midst of hysterically inaccurate education for generations. America is unique. America copied no other country. Every other country was a copycat of others, with governments that denied individual freedom, denied opportunity, denied sovereignty. That’s what was copied. Tyranny was copied, nation to nation, people to people. That is the history of humanity: Living in tyranny, living under authoritarianism, living in poverty, living in sickness — until the United States came along, which copied nothing.

The United States and its founders rejected all of that tyranny, oppression, poverty. In America, the individual was the supreme power. That is being erased under the premise that the individual is corrupt. The individual is likely a racist or a transphobe or a homophobe or some other ill-prepared sack of humanity, and so we need to overcome the corruption that is the individual, that incomparable embrace of humanity that is the United States of America.

There’s no place on this planet that human beings would rather be than the United States of America. And yet people born and raised in this country have been persuaded that America is a sinkhole, a hellhole, a sewer, a garbage dump, or a dungeon, and they’re in the process of actually creating all of that — under the guise that civil rights, equality, and liberty. The incomparable embrace of humanity that is the United States is under attack. Leftists, Democrats seek control over 100% of the population. They accomplish this with lies, such as the Affordable Health Care Act.

They accomplish it with one lie after another. The lies being told today are the lies designed to convince people their country is not worth maintaining as it is, their country is not worth maintaining as founded because it was founded as racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic (you know the drill), immoral and illegitimate. Ignorant people will not remain free for very long. The media is working on a path parallel with school systems to actively and passively distort information to wipe out from the vestiges of our history and our memory any collection of stories that testify to the greatness of America and her people.


And because we all love Taylor Swift, I give you her timeless advice.


But at least SOME parents are teaching their kids about the horrors of Anti-Capitalism. Maybe there is some hope out there, and since Millennials are so big on being ‘worldy’, maybe you should go visit some of these crap-holes before you declare we should follow them.

But go Donald Trump Jr:


And now I need to go watch the Historical DocumentaryRED DAWN, just to feel clean again. But not that garbage remake with North Koreans and Thor. The original, with Russians/Cubans, high school kids, and FREEDOM!!!

I love Elephants – But we need to slay them, eat their flesh, and wear their skins!

Disclaimer – I both love Animals and I support Hunting.

If I was on the Ark, I’d never let them off.

I say that, then think about how much our English Mastiff annoys me… so after 2 days of being cooped up with them I’d probably make them all walk the plank and into the ocean.  Two by two. (Not enough is said about Noah’s patience.)

But I support hunting. I wish I had the time, energy, and ability to do a lot more of it.  Maybe when I get to move to Wyoming…  And personally, I don’t care for the sitting and waiting, and bonding with nature and reverting to your primitive self stuff… I find that boring. But I like the POW-THUD! Part. And meat, I love tasty, tender morsels of flesh.

But here we are – Elephants!

Trump to lift ban on importing elephant trophies from Africa

And the US of A goes collectively nuts. The left complains because they complain about EVERYTHING, and because their hero Obama put the ban in place. The right complains because hunting isn’t as popular, understood, or accepted as it used/should be.

Everyone seems to agree that it’s just so SAD to allow them to be killed!

But tell that to the African’s who have eleven-foot-tall, 13,000-pound animals for neighbors. And not just one or two, but HERDS of them.  Who will stomp your fences, ruin your crops, poop in your yards, and occasionally go on rampages that destroy houses and cars and kill you, your family, or your neighbors.

So what’s worse?


Or putting upwards of $50,000 into an impoverished economy, humanely and quickly killing a troublesome elephant, giving literally thousands of pounds of meat to the starving locals, and getting a hunt of a lifetime, some pictures, and maybe a pair of ivory tusks to hang on your wall?

Easy answer.

But you know what else all that evil, rich, white hunter money goes towards?

Anti-Poaching teams and land/game conservation efforts.

Take that away and see how well these dirt poor countries do at keeping their animals alive. Starving people don’t give a crap how rare an animal is, they’ll eat it as fast as they can kill it. HUGE swaths of Africa are nothing but wasteland because there has been no conservation efforts. But most countries understand the VALUE of leaving them alone for hunters to come pour money into their economy and food on their table.

An elephant getting killed is cause for celebration to local villages. They pour out by the hundreds to start hacking off slabs of meat. Nothing goes to waste.

Now here’s where people say, “But they are magnificent creatures!” (Yes. Yes they are!)

They are intelligent, clever, with a family like social structure, and they even mourn their dead!

Just like Pitbulls right? And they are out right banned, and sometimes confiscated from their owners and killed for simply existing in many cities across America because of the ‘threat’ they pose.  And dogs are family members.

They are attractive, intelligent, and social animals, just like Elephants. Except they are loyal and protective.

Mr. Elephant don’t care about you.

So what’s your point?

“They are RARE! Right?”Sure, more rare than the most common breed of dog in America, that so many people automatically hate because of a bunch of crappy owners raising crappy dogs and getting plastered all over the news? Rhetorical Question!

Yes and no, but that’s where conservation comes in.

And believe it or not, conservation is not ‘sit back and let the animals do what they want and never get involved’. Conservation is taking the responsibility of carefully cultivating a species to maintain a healthy population.  This means culling. Selectively choosing a certain portion of a herd and removing them to keep the herd healthy.

I don’t want to get to heavy into this. But if you allow a herd of deer to reproduce without culling, you’re going to have over-populated area problems. Starvation, disease, car accidents, and predators moving into the area. (Coyotes don’t care what’s on the end of your leash, be it Poodle or Kid. Food is food.) And at the rate of two Bambi’s per Doe a year, they reproduce FAST.

If you think it’s sad for hunters to humanely shoot deer and eat the meat or mount the rack on their wall, think how sad it is for hundreds of deer to slowly starve to death or die of disease?

Coming back to Elephants, it’s the same thing. There may be less of them, but they need to be properly managed by HUNTERS and CONSERVATIONISTS. They don’t need a bunch of people hollering that every single elephant is precious and should be allowed to live!

They need to be treated like a protected and treasured resource.

If an area can’t support a population, they MUST be culled until it can. And African countries get this, that’s why they have permits and put resources in place.

This is the jist of the argument:

Basic Americans – “Don’t hurt them!”

Basic Africans – “Kill them! Kill them all!”

African Governments – “Here, go kill whats needed and give us tons of monies.  And Stop Poachers! Because they are screwing our balancing up!”

And please don’t bring up the whole ‘evil hunter’ thing that just pumps bullet after bullet into critters. It shows ignorance.We are not poachers spraying Elephants with full-auto AK-47’s and RPKs.

First off, because we can’t buy full-auto guns like that. (Write your congress critter – cause we’d like to!)

Second – No one likes to have to track an animal. It takes time and effort and it sucks. You may not find it, you may have to wander around in the woods with a flash light. That REALLY sucks for a hunter. One shot drops are where it’s at and what we all hope for. Be it bunny, deer, or Snuffaluffagus. But if need be, we will hurl another bullet into them as fast as possible if the first didn’t finish them off.

Elephants, Lions, Tigers, Bears, and Oh-My’s are no different. Except those critters may very well kill you if you don’t kill it quick enough.

And probably Snuffy too. Don’t let his Sesame Street behavior fool you.

Personally, I don’t have much interest in shooting an Elephant. Not my thing. I hear Cape Buffalo are a real dangerous thrill and that Hippo’s are not the giant peaceful cows people think they are.  But I’d love to wax a Rhino. Won’t happen in my lifetime, but with good conservation and poacher-prevention, and a big inheritance, maybe they will be plentiful enough that my descendants can kill one for me.

Also – Sat is opening rifle day, so I’m going hunting for many deers. Wish me luck.



EDIT – After writing this, this link was shown to me.  A quick and worthy read.

To sum up, countries that ban hunting had severe Elephant herd declines due to poaching where-as countries that allowed hunting and promoted conservation saw Elephant herds INCREASE.



On the writing side of things, I discovered SCRIVENER a couple days ago. And actually made myself motion-sick last night by scrolling, cutting, pasting, scrolling, repeating, over almost 80,000 words last night into the program. But it’s supposed to be awesome, right now it’s just kind of confusing. But being able to bounce easily between chapters instead of searching a YUGE 170ish page Word document for the part I need to edit or left off at, is nice.

I’m 35 today and the USMC is 242!

35.. I guess my life is half over now. Or a third maybe… I dunno, but it’s a big chunk. Been a good ride so far and I expect great things in the next 35… except for my kids growing up. That’s gonna be a headache…especially with a daughter. :/

But I’m lucky in that I get to share my birthday with the USMC, I got a lot of grief over that when I was in, but its still pretty sweet. I adore the Marine Corps, it’s a cult – a glorious throat stomping, bayoneting, alpha–male dominated cult of awesomeness.

If you watch ‘A Few Good Men’ and you aren’t in the Marine Corps, you probably think that Tom Cruise is the Hero and Jack Nicholson is the Villain. For Marines, it’s the other way around. Jack Nicholson is our hero because he puts the spoiled brat lawyer in his place while defending the Corps unofficial Hazing Policy on Marines Who Suck.

Enlisting was one of the best decisions I ever made, I didn’t have any direction, discipline or drive after I graduated college. USMC fixed that real quick. You never forget standing on those yellow foot prints at Parris Island, with Drill Instructors screaming at you, and realizing you may have made a seriously poor life decision. Fast forward 13 weeks as you are handed the EGA (Eagle/Globe/Anchor), and you realize you’ve never been prouder of yourself or what you have become a part of. It’s done wonders for my ego. 🙂

But it stays with you to the end of your days.

If you’ve never heard of Mike Mansfield, you’re missing out. He was an ambassador to Japan, the longest serving Majority Leader in the Senate, huge advocate for Civil rights, a Democrat, but he wasn’t afraid to bash his own party when they were wrong. Extremely accomplished guy. He’s not buried in Arlington in the ‘politician’ section, he’s buried with the common soldier and his grave marker says nothing but:

Michael J. Mansfield, PVT. U.S. Marine Corps

That’s how big a deal it is to be in the glorious Marine Corps. The lowest rank in the USMC, and his proudest accomplishment!

As for my birthday? It’s been great. I took a day off from work, hung out with my wife and toddler all morning. Then I went to the range and shot for a couple hours. My intention was to sight in a rifle for deer season, but I forgot to bring a screwdriver needed to adjust the rear sight. I’ve been told by my dad for decades to get a Swiss Army Knife – so it is time! At the last range trip, my wife’s Bersa Thunder had suddenly decided to start stove-pipping(where the shell casing gets stuck coming out of the pistol and sticking upwards), so I cleaned it up really well and took it out with me to try again. Still jamming on 4 rounds out of 10 on several types of ammo. Time to search the gun forums and figure out whats wrong.

Luckily, since my rifle and the wife’s gun wasn’t working, I had brought my old Ruger Mark II and was wearing my Glock 19 carry gun. I shot about about 500 rounds through the pair of them.

Good times were still had!

And I learned that the 30 round magazines for pistols are pretty fun. Since I don’t have a full auto Glock 18, I never saw the purpose. But today, I practiced multiple target acquisition drills on a pair of steel plate dueling trees – from the low ready. (Basically, I pointed my pistol at the ground, then swung up and popped a metal plate that swings from side to side. The ‘dueling trees’ have six plates, the objective is for two people to shoot them and the ‘winner’ shoots them all onto his opponents side while he tries to shoot them all on your side. ) Since the magazines I had were already loaded with Corbon PowRball defense ammo and I didn’t feel like unloading them –  I realized I had the 30 round magazine that came with the pistol in my range bag. The previous owner even put a +2 round plate on the bottom. Sweet. So I had 32 rounds between reloads. It looks ridiculous as all get out, but it was nice to save the reload time. And it gives your hands a heckuva workout, gripping it for 32 shots.


Speaking of good times, last week I did a Spartan Beast Race (12-15 miles with 30ish obstacles) with a buddy of mine to wrap up our second Trifecta. It was in Spartanburg SC, never been there before, really nice city! Way nicer than I expected. Still wouldn’t want to live there, population density is like 1,000x higher than what I want. But very nice. I knew some Marines that live down there, but didn’t have time to look them up. Sorry guys! I’ll be back next year!

Since it was just the two of us bach’ing it without our wives, we went super cheap when locking down a room online. It was like 55 bucks or something and was a smoking room. (We got upgraded to a non-smoking room upon check-in though.)

We \ran the race then went back to the hotel check in and shower off the caked mud and debris.

Yeah, it was a cheap hotel for reals. The kind you rent by the hour. Ever heard of RoadWay? Not I!

The microwaves laying scattered around the dumpsters should have been a warning. Or the fact that it was situated between a McDonalds, ABC store, Gas Station, and Burger King. (Everything a man needs for a good time with a hot date at the rent-an-hour motel!)

There was a mini-van on blocks in front of our room, next to it was a car with blankets over the windows. Some of the rooms had charcoal grills and lounge chairs outside of them from permanent hotel dwellers. Some Jabba-Hut looking woman in a McDonald’s shirt was sitting(laying?) down outside a room door on the phone and smoking.

But we are two big dudes who carry guns, so we weren’t about to leave.

The room next to us, was a family that consisted of a woman and a little boy and girl. They were running back and forth across the walkway, chasing each other when we showed up. We checked in, got some showers, and my buddy went downstairs to get some drinks from the vending machines. Which weren’t were the signs said they were, because they were moved closer to the office (I’m guessing so people would stop breaking in and stealing all the quarters) when he came back up, the little boy was yelling at his sister that she was fat. (“You FAT! REAL FAT!”)  They were like, 6 and 7 years old. Real charming!

The mother yelled a few choice things that I can’t repeat with words that certainly shouldn’t be said to people you like.

I ended up with the bed closest to the door, apparently because my buddy wanted me to soak up all the drive-by bullets.

But we felt reasonably safe, it seemed like the family next door lived here. So we figured the kids were our alarm system, if the mother runs out and grabs them, or if they drop to the ground and crawl into their room – we’ll know something bad is about to go down.

And besides, we had our guns and our white privilege to keep us safe.

Nothing happened to us, so maybe white privilege does exist(!) and that’s why? Or maybe it’s because we are big dudes with little hair, smoking cigars, and looking like we don’t mind brawling. We also wore hoodies outside because it was cold, so maybe they thought we were one of them? Enh, who knows. But good times in deed!

I edited this into the last post, but this picture is to great to not put in again. This is Spartan Race. It is muddy. That wall behind me? We had to go under it, in that thick stinky nasty muddy water. Stuff gets in all your crevices, a week later I’m still trying to get clean.

After weeks of build up to an Antifa-Apocalypse, with the threat of millions of communists, fascists, and anarchists expected to turn out to overthrow our elected President, we were so stoked. Hundreds of thousands of Americans spent the 4th of November hoping to go out and do some patriot stuff.

Across the nation they loving selected their favorite rifles and pistols, loaded magazines to full capacity, made sure their American flag was unfurled and flying in the breeze, strapped on holsters and magazine carriers, fueled up their vehicles, and prepared for the righteous slaughter that was to come…

But sadly, all the ANTIFA fascists stayed at home.

Probably because their mom wanted them to clean up their room in the basement.  Or they were grounded. Or they had a test on Monday at Liberal Loser University in ‘Communist Theory’ and ‘Underwater Sign Waving’.

The “Revolution” turned out to be a fizzle and some poor guys made a lot of wasted signs and wooden bats then looked rather stupid standing among piles of unused makeshift weapons.

For us it was like hunters spending weeks in anticipation, only to find out the season has been canceled because there wasn’t any game to hunt.

Thanks guys – there is nothing as miserable as unloading magazines when we should have been sweeping up fired casings and planting American flags in mounds of your unwashed and uneducated corpses.

Anyways, go wash your face masks, put another coating of lacquer on your shield, and spray paint another cardboard sign. I’m sure you cowards aren’t finished being obnoxious yet.

I hear you guys have another planned protest tomorrow on the anniversary of Trumps election. You plan on collectively screaming at the sky in an attempt to ‘rouse a sleeping giant’.


Good luck with that.

We will be waiting on your violent revolution, and this poster below from Hellhound Apparel shows what our response will be.


And final word of this post goes to legendary Lt. Col Jeff Cooper:

“Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view.”


(For the record – I was out of town running a Spartan Beast race, and I never figured it would amount to anything anyways. But I did have my Glock and a few extra magazines, and a couple thousand pounds of motor vehicle to keep me safe during the ‘mass protests’. I’m told that getting a ‘pretty dunk wall’ picture is a big deal, well this is as pretty as it gets with me…)



EDIT – A fellow Marine just had his first article posted at Appalachian Tactical Academy, on Hardening Your Castle. It’s a great article and from everything I hear, ATA is a fine place to get tactical training for the Citizen-Warrior. Read the article, do some upgrades, then go get training.
