More proof of the Cult of Democrat, grandparents reject grandkids

Kevin Nicholson may have once been the president of the College Democrats of America and spoke at the 2000 Democratic National Convention. But that was then, this is now.

Appearing on the FNC morning show Fox & Friends, the Republican hopeful to unseat incumbent Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin in 2018 told of his conversaion from being the leader one of the largest Democrat youth organizations in the country to becoming the GOP senate hopeful for the Badger State.

I’ll let you see the video for yourself … but it honestly saddens me to know that a husband and wife would actually go out of their way to estrange themselves not only from one of their children, but also their grandchildren.



I equally feel bad for F&F hostess Ainsley Earhardt, who obviously wasn’t briefed that Nicholson and his parents have no contact with each other. She was also obviously very embarrassed and apologized profusely.

All I can say about how horribly I view the grandparents, it just reminds me of how so many were ready to abandon family for love of the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

Top Marine General warns troops: ‘There’s a war coming’

When the Commandant of the Marine Corps tells his Marines to be ready for a “big-ass fight” coming their way, even non-Marines tend to pay attention.

Speaking to one of the Marine battalions that rotate six-month tours of duty in Norway, Gen. Robery Neller was quite upfront telling his Leathernecks, “I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming.”

As reported by Military.com;

The Norwegian Home Guard base near Trondheim that houses the Marine rotational force was the first stop on Gen. Robert Neller’s annual Christmas tour.



The stop was a new one for the tour. The first Norway rotation, from 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, deployed in January and was replaced by a new unit from 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines, in late August.

Neller emphasized to the Marines that they should remain ready to fight at all times, predicting a “big-ass fight” on the horizon.

“I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming,” Neller said. ” … You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”

Neller later told the Marines that he expects the Pacific and Russia to be the service’s operational points of focus as the nation looks beyond the fights in the Middle East that have stretched into the better part of two decades.

The United States’ position that Russia presents a major threat was re-emphasized in the new National Security Strategy released Monday. The document discusses Russia’s practice of “using information tools” to interfere with other nations’ democracies and militant aggression that crosses borders.

“With its invasions of Georgia and Ukraine, Russia demonstrates its willingness to violate the sovereignty of states in the region,” the strategy states.

Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Ronald Green put the Marines’ role starkly.

“Just remember why you’re here,” he said. “They’re watching. Just like you watch them, they watch you. We’ve got 300 Marines up here; we could go from 300 to 3,000 overnight. We could raise the bar.”

Marine Artillery Rains Hell on ISIS; ‘Burned Out’ Two Cannons

Don’t expect to hear much of this from the Establishment Media, but the US Marines were just an integral part in the crushing defeat dealt to the ISIS terrorists occupying their de facto capital city of Raqqa in north central Syria.

NY Times Launches Slime Attack on Gen. John Kelly’s Patriotism

Apparently, a presidential Chief-of-Staff sharing the same definition of patriotism as his boss is now a bad thing.

But that’s only if the C-i-S in question is John Kelly, and the president in question is Donald Trump.

In all fairness, it should also be noted that the ones casting the accusatory finger is none other than the paragon of objectivity and fairness, The New York Times.

As **achem** “reported” by Peter Baker of The Times, the writer bemoans that Kelly hasn’t reigned-in Trump to his satisfaction;

For all of the talk of Mr. Kelly as a moderating force and the so-called grown-up in the room, it turns out that he harbors strong feelings on patriotism, national security and immigration that mirror the hard-line views of his outspoken boss.

Imagine that… a man who spent well over 40 years in the Marine Corps happens to be a solid pro-American patriot. Whoda thunk it?

These are the type of men General John Kelly led as
Commander of all Multinational Forces in western Iraq.

Tell it to the Marines: General Kelly Tells of the Best Job He Ever Had

I’ll admit it – I love Gen Kelly. I love him as a father-figure, as a strong national leader, as a true role model in every sense of the word.

But what I admire most about the man is his strength of character. Specifically, his sense of humility.

Just listen to the general as he describes;

  1. The hardest job he’s ever had.
  2. The most important job he’s ever had.
  3. The best job he’s ever had.

America needs more like John Kelly, and a helluva lot less of the likes of Rahm Emanuel.

Gen Kelly fires back at Democrat Luis ‘Kelly is a Disgrace to the Uniform’ Gutierrez

John Kelly has been many things in his life; a Marine Corps officer, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Chief-of-Staff for the President of the United States, just to name a few.

But what most Americans don’t know about about General Kelly and his wife, Karen, is that they are both Gold Star parents. They lost their son, 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly, USMC, who was killed in combat operations in Afghanistan.

Nonetheless, a certain pip squeak of a politician has taken it upon himself to publicly insult Kelly, as reported by Fox News;

In a statement last Tuesday, [Rep. Luis] Gutierrez said Kelly “has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the President’s actions by ‘just following orders.’”

Never serving as much as even a reservist’s weekend duty, the congressman representing the 4th Congressional District, nicknamed “Chiraq” due to the death and destruction that normally follows Democrats in charge, Gutierrez is ostensibly lashing out at President Trump’s adherence to the Constitution in regards to giving Congress a six-month time frame to legislate a solution to Barack Obama’s temporary immigration fix popularly known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

Predictably, Gutierrez offered up zero proof of Kelly being a supposed “white supremacist.” On the contrary, common sense dictates that during Kelly’s 42-years of military service, he regularly entrusted his very life to fellow Marines of every race, creed, color and religion.

But being a man of honor, Kelly has responded to Gutierrez’s slanderous and factless tirade;

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired back at a prominent House Democrat who called him a “disgrace to the uniform,” in the Gold Star father and retired Marine Corps general’s first public response to the personal attack on his service.

Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez had leveled the criticism at Kelly over his support of President Trump’s decision to end a controversial program that shielded young illegal immigrants from deportation.

In an email to Fox News late Sunday, Kelly responded by saying Congress did “nothing” to help so-called Dreamers when they had the chance.

“As far as the congressman and other irresponsible members of congress are concerned, they have the luxury of saying what they want as they do nothing and have almost no responsibility,” Kelly said. “They can call people liars but it would be inappropriate for me to say the same thing back at them. As my blessed mother used to say ‘empty barrels make the most noise.’”

He concluded, “The congressman has a right to his opinion.”

Proving that his comrade in arms, Gen. James “Chaos” Mattis isn’t the only quotable person in the Trump Administration, Trump’s C-o-S made headlines during the historic assault on Baghdad when he informed a nervous Los Angeles Times reporter who thought the heavily outnumbered Marines just may face defeat when they launched their offensive against the heavily defended Iraqi capital city;

“Hell these are Marines. Men like them held Guadalcanal and took Iwo Jima. Baghdad ain’t sh*t.”

The All-American Marine finally buried at home.

While the vast majority of Americans enjoyed a turkey dinner with all the trimmings this Thanksgiving holiday, a mere handful of octogenarians and nonagenarians remember when a certain Thanksgiving didn’t smell like baked ham and apple pie, but of human flesh either burnt or bloated and rotting in the 115°F (46°C) equatorial heat.

Old Corps, New Corps… now the Obama Corps.

Political correctness be damned. Arguably the greatest Marine who ever lived, the quotable Lt. Gen. Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller once famously opined,

“Our Country won’t go on forever if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.” Continue reading The Spirit of Obama Claims Another Victim — Yoga for the Marine Corps

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (via the Reuters news service), roughly 22 American military veterans kill themselves every day. That equates to one dead vet every 65 minutes. Especially with cases of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder through the roof, the Marine Corps is now taking flack for developing a “Spiritual Fitness” syllabus to strengthen any given Marine’s “mental resilience necessary for war.”  Continue reading Atheists Threaten USMC with Lawsuit over ‘Spiritual Fitness’ Training

Cartwright pleads guilty to lying to the FBI…

According to the official directions of HQMC (Headquarters Marine Corps), the core values of every single person who wears the Eagle, Globe and Anchor are honor, courage and commitment.

Specifically falling under honor, it’s further defined that no Marine will ever “lie, cheat, or steal.”

Unfortunately, retired General James E. Cartwright seems to have forgotten those very simple truths. Either that, or he never believed in them to begin with. Continue reading Rotten to the Corps: ‘Obama’s Favorite General’ Pleads Guilty

Numerous unexploded devices found…

UPDATE: Fox News is reporting that in the trash bin where one device exploded, there were “three to four” other pipe bombs that failed to detonate.

Some may call it pure coincidence, other may call it an act of God. However one desires to frame the happenstance today in New Jersey, the slight delay in a race’s start time just may have saved more than a few from death or injury from a concealed pipe bomb.

Obama’s Broken Campaign Promise X3

obamaWe are leaving in 2014. Period.” -Joe Biden, 2012.

For a third time, the campaign promise made by Team Obama/Biden during the 2012 presidential race has been matter-of-factly relegated to the dustbin of politics as usual. While Joe Biden’s promise to the American people that all US troops would be out of Afghanistan, in Biden’s words, “We are leaving in 2014. Period,” the truth of the matter is that particular Democratic Party talking point has proven itself to be a blatant lie.

Precious Snowflake Alert: Time to bring back National Service

It’s been almost a half a century since America stopped drafting poor and middle class males. Fortunately for the nation, in the 70s, 80s and 90s there were enough young men available to fill the ranks of America’s newly resurrected all-volunteer Armed Forces.

But that was then. This is now. Continue reading Precious Snowflake Alert: Time to bring back National Service

If I don’t cooperate with them that they were going to do everything in their power to ensure that my mother would be deported. – US Marine threatened by military investigators.

As any Marine will tell you, it’s never a good thing when the enemy is making every attempt to kill you. And as the fighting Leathernecks of 1st Platoon, Fox Company will make equally clear, it’s worse when your own officers and government want you dead. Making the entire episode all the more disgusting, most Americans don’t even know anything about this.

We have met the enemy, and they are us.

A Retired Marine’s 12 Days of Christmas – NSFD (Not Safe For Democrats)

12DaysYes, it’s that time for the obligatory Christmas posting. So with tongue firmly placed in cheek, I certainly hope you enjoy my somewhat irreverent take on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

As for the “Caveman” reference, that was my call sign in the Corps. With that said, I do ask that after viewing the below video that liberals don’t freak out, anti-gun nuts don’t go into melt-down, and that militant atheists go on a screed.
