An American Coup D'etat?

This has gotten completely out of control. I never thought I would see our country's politics reduced to the degrading levels of a Banan...

Iran and Things

Had a nearly complete digital meltdown. I had an identity theft issue whereby some clowns were out trying to get credit cards and phone service using my name and data. USAA and Experian were big helps in getting that under control--at least for now. In addition, or part of the same, all my emails disappeared, along with my ability to send any new ones; that crisis is slowly being resolved. So, as you can see, I was cut off from the WORLD! FROM THE WORLD!

In my digital absence, of course, the Iranians took advantage of the power vacuum, and pulled one of their classic stunts: shooting down an unarmed US drone flying over international waters in international airspace. Outrageous crap from the Delusional Ayatollahs and their Iran Revolutionary Guard clowns. I see they and their protectors are already putting out the usual nonsense that maybe the missile that downed the drone was fired by some "rogue" element not under Teheran's control. Yes, yes. We've seen this before: remember the "students" who seized the Embassy? The Houthis who bombed an airfield? Mysterious others who fired missiles into Israel or put limpet mines on tankers? The Iranian regime is composed of cowards who want their cake, and have it enriched, too. They must sorely miss Obama.

I don't advocate for a war with Iran because we don't need one to keep these SOBs under control. In addition, of course, as we become ever more energy independent--All Praise to the Frackers!--we need the Middle East less and less. A sharp, painful response, however, is required just to let the Ayatollahs know we aren't buying their nonsense, and we aren't going to let them imperil our people at no risk: Sink their fleet in their harbor; knock out some important economic target; hit their missile batteries, are among the many possibilities. The President should take his time and come up with something appropriate. The Dems would be wise to knock off their impeach nonsense for just a bit, and give the White House room to maneuver.

Now we can go back to worrying about the impending doom from global warming cooling change whatever, that means we will have less more snow, fewer more hurricanes wetter drier winters,  whatever, etc.

  2. Dealing with Iran would be so much easier if the Europeans were not such short-sighted wussies. And if the Democrats were not bought & paid for by every international bad actor.

    Still, this is the world we live in. Thank the Lord for President Trump!

  4. We know Iran's plans from the late April defection of Chief intelligence officer Brig. Gen. Ali Nasiri.
    We are, according to the Suns shift in its magnetic field, going to have another little Ice Age. So instead of drowning due to warming and ice melting, we will freeze and starve to death because of the shorter growing season.

  5. It is significant that the country most affected by interruption of oil delivery through Hormuz is China. Trump is meeting with Xi at the G 20. I wonder if Hormuz will come up ?

    1. Xi JInping loves Iran. They tweak our nose, and may conveniently distract us when Xi wishes to invade Taiwan. As for the oppression of China's Muslims, the Ayatollahs doubtlessly think that as Sunnis, the Uyghurs and the Hui deserve what their Chinese friend and protector dishes out. And I doubt any Chinese tankers have been attacked.

  6. All those who seek to destroy Donald Trump’s reelection chances, now rather good, ought to know, and likely do, that yet another war in the Middle East is likely the surest and the shortest means to accomplish it.

    2. 'spect the peeps, at least the half of the US Electorate who support the CinC, would be pleasantly surprised, if he could arrange a 'Glass Parking Lot' display of American Engineering, to include Tehran and surrounds. Of course, giving the locals 24 hours to vacate would be a nice show of concern for the innocent Iranians! Certainly would provide a convincing Demo of what the next set of Islamist bad actors will receive, when the choose to attack the USA on Patrol. Then again, I expect our progressive Democrat enemies within would prefer that we allow the Islamic shitheads to get a crack at US first. Time will tell just how much, slack we should extend to the dishonorable opposition before we jerk a knot in their collective asses! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

    3. Ordinary Iranians will be unable to escape, as all the roads will be gridlocked with fleeing mullahs in their stretch limos.

      Delete
    4. Threading the needle to afflict the mullahs and comfort the ordinary people will be the task. Obama watched them be massacred in the interests of his great realignment in the Middle East. I have often wondered how much Jarrett had to do with that. These days, mosque attendance is at 2% and the birth rate has crashed. The people are not our enemy, much like the ordinary Russians were under the Soviets.

  7. Being that Trump really made most of his biggest name on the reality game show circuit, maybe it's time for: "You're Fired: Who wants to be America's 51st State?"

    1. Hmmph. While teaching in Taiwan, I met an American salesman of Mexican birth. He mentioned his only gripe with his adopted country was that we stopped where we did back in 1847. Further, in the game of who wants to be America's 51st state, I think I know some Salvadorenos who'd be game. I also understand there are Taiwanese interested.

    2. At some point, we'd have to add 'California' to the list of potential suitors. :)

  8. I know a few Albertans who wouldn't mind...especially if we get statehood and 2nd amendment protections.

      Sodom & Gomorrah! Sounds like a good reason to get the hell outta their! Mark Steyn's been dodging leftist Canook manure for close to a decade! Yes, I believe the petitioner for 51st state residency as a viable case for inclusion! Full disclosure: I do have a broken branch of the On Watch clan who sailed out of skandahovial ports across perilous ocean currents and stormy seas and beached their Dragon Boat in Edmonton, near where my Great Grand Unkle Johannes (aka John) started a Golf Course, his son my Uncle Dave, signed on as Engineer for Boeing! His sister, my Aunt Audrey married a Mountie and they raised a pack of conservative Mushers! I believe they'll all be wanting to head South before the Global Ice Age sets in!

  11. Trump wanted that drone shot down. Why else would we operate a $120M drone inside the SAM threat with no ECM support? RQ-4 standoff sensors could monitor the straights of Hormuz from >100 mi away, and Satellites can provide a deep look. That particular drone may have even been gutted of sensors to minimize the lo$$.
    Trump notified congress of a retaliatory strike to smoke out leakers and traitors on our own side, always knowing he was going to call it off. The cancellation also made Trump look cool and level headed, and up the Media's derangement.

  12. Dear Brutha Anon, your informed analysis of the Drone shootdown affair was captivating, and in retrospect so obvious! However, while the 'cancellation' phase may have elevated perceptions of Presidential Cool, found it hard to believe that 'Media derangement', already off the charts, could get any higher! Of course my expired clearances would preclude my access to more sensitive sensorial measures, I'll check with 'Google'!
