Another Attack On US Military Troops’ Morale

The problem is that California increased the size of bonuses. Now the feds want it back. All of it, not just the increases. The decision to increase bonuses was made at the state level. If anyone should repay it should be the state of California.

“Report: California soldiers must repay enlistment bonuses”


Nearly 10,000 California National Guard soldiers have been ordered to repay huge enlistment bonuses a decade after signing up to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan, a newspaper reported Saturday.

The Pentagon demanded the money back after audits revealed overpayments by the California Guard under pressure to fill ranks and hit enlistment goals. If soldiers refuse, they could face interest charges, wage garnishments and tax liens, the Los Angeles Times ( ) said.


Soldiers said they feel betrayed at having to repay the money.

“These bonuses were used to keep people in,” said Christopher Van Meter, a 42-year-old former Army captain and Iraq veteran who was awarded a Purple Heart. “People like me just got screwed.”

Van Meter said he refinanced his home mortgage to repay $25,000 in reenlistment bonuses and $21,000 in student loan repayments that the military says was improperly given to him.”

Chicago: Proof Of How Well Gun Control Works

Chicago, Illinois has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. All they do is create restrictions for law-abiding residents. The rest don’t care what laws they violate.

Chicago politicians stick to the notion of stronger gun laws. They say the guns come from neighboring states that have less stringent gun laws. As we have noted before, that doesn’t make sense. A Glock pistol that would sell for about $500 in a gun shop can be had on the streets of Chicago for $200-$250.

This isn’t about straw buyers buying in Indiana or Iowa and bringing them into the city. It’s about guns that are stolen – sometimes from the police and federal agents. It’s also caused by the city police not charging miscreants with gun violations. Don’t want to have more faces of color in the jail.

“1,000 more people shot in Chicago compared with same time last year”

A shooting in East Garfield Park on Oct. 14, 2016, left one man dead and six others wounded. A thousand more people have been shot in Chicago this year compared with the same time last year, according to police and data compiled by the Tribune.

“Don’t wait!” the advertisement reads. “Prices will skyrocket after Crooked Hillary gets in.”


Clinton has advocated no such thing. Like President Obama, she has proposed stepping up background checks and closing loopholes that allow guns to be sold online and at gun shows with few restrictions on who can buy them.”

Who Are ‘The Elite’?

This morning there is this at Zero Hedge:

“The Elite “Have No Idea” – Society Is Near The Breaking Point”

The writer argues that the stupid elite have no idea what they are doing to the ‘Deplorables’ in the United States.

What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface. Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says “1788” on it. Something is close. Very close. Society is near the breaking point.

My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed. Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed. The Deplorables have the longest fuse. It is, however, a fuse.

Alt Left, on the other hand, are the Neo Fascists and Neo Neocons. It is Alt Left that thinks Free Speech means THEIR speech only. It is Alt Left that needs ‘safe spaces’ and wants to enforce thought crime.”

Today we have a report about the fire bombing of a GOP headquarters building in North Carolina. CNN is trying to blame it on the rhetoric of Donald Trump – as though he told the bombers to commit a felony.

I seriously doubt that it was a Republican who did the deed or spray painted Nazi slurs on the building. But they would like to obfuscate the facts in order to make Trump the demon.

But back to ‘Elites’. The emotional talk on the clip above came from a person who sees himself as an elite. Most televisions and film personalities do. But what about the real elites? People like Obama, Michelle, Hillary, or Valerie Jarrett?

I think they know just what they are doing. They are working hard to provoke the Deplorables into violence. The pressure is coming from every direction. Again, the writer at Zero Hedge says:

Perhaps most significant is that it is Alt Left who so quickly resorts to violence and vandalism when confronted with people and ideas with which it takes exception. Never has that been as clear as in this election cycle.

The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of society.

The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune. That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed. When the levee breaks, or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gob smacked.

Precious few of them are anywhere near as immune as they believe themselves to be. Additionally, what they might think, or hope, is their support, their security, their safe space, doesn’t really exist.

Most of society’s guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the Deplorables.

France was similarly constructed in the late 1780s. The elite were isolated only in thought, not in reality. Their protection was of a Potemkin Village nature: not actually there, but merely a facade that gave them false comfort.

They paid dearly for their arrogance and ignorance.”

Could This Even Happen In An American University?

The fact that the Muslim attacked a woman would be kept quiet. The man who put him in a choke hold to stop him would be charged and expelled. The students know that. It’s a powerful incentive to refuse to intervene. Instead the would have had to watch the beheading while doing nothing.

A Good Samaritan who interrupted a violent attack at a University of British Columbia dormitory is crediting his martial arts training for his quick actions that led to the suspect’s arrest.

Adam Casey, an engineering student at the school, said he ran up the stairs after witnesses ran out of the Salish House residence on Tuesday looking for help.

Witnesses said they saw a male student holding down a young woman with a knife to her throat. Her neck was partially cut when they ran through the open door.

“I tried to get his hands off of her neck but he was holding quite tightly,” Casey told CTV News.
“I had to go to him and put him in a chokehold.”


The suspect is an international student from Saudi Arabia, and was studying engineering. He has been banned from the campus following the charges, and remains in police custody.

The true number of child marriages in Germany is believed to be much higher than the official statistics suggest because many are being concealed.

In May, an appeals court in Bamberg recognized the marriage of a 15-year-old Syrian girl to her 21-year-old cousin. The ruling effectively legalized Sharia child marriages in Germany.


German authorities are debating the contours of a new law that would crack down on child marriages after it emerged that some 1,500 underage brides are now living in the country.

The married minors are among the more than one million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who entered Germany in 2015.”

When A Progressive Gets Sad He Says Stupid Things

“I Listened to a Trump Supporter”


I talked at length with a Trump supporter I grew up around. I wanted to understand. I respected her growing up. I wanted to know why a person as kind and compassionate as I remember her is voting for someone like Donald Trump.


She’s voting for Donald Trump. I disagree with her choice, but I understand why she rejects Clinton so fiercely, and why she’s been swept up in Donald Trump’s particular brand of right-wing populism. I feel that on the left, it’s increasingly easy to ignore these people, to disregard them, to write them off as racists, bigots, or uneducated. I think that’s a loss for everyone involved, and that sometimes listening can help you to at least understand why a person is making the choices they make, so you can work on the root causes.


This is a wounded person. Insulting her or continuing to hurt her isn’t going to help. She’s swept up in Trump’s message because she feels someone’s finally listening.”

A 13-year-old girl who shot a couple at a beauty store in July is “not a monster” and should not be certified to stand trial as an adult, the head of the NAACP office in St. Louis said Tuesday. The man and woman, both in their 70s, were shot July 19 while working at their daughter’s store, Kings Beauty Supply, at 10073 Lewis and Clark Boulevard in Bellefontaine Neighbors. Adolphus M.

“Spain Is without a National Government — And Spaniards Are Digging It”


With neither major party able to secure a majority of seats in the national legislature and the two parties unable to agree on a coalition government, for the last 10 months Spain has had a do-nothing caretaker government for the first time in its history. While basic government services continue, no new legislation is being proposed, foreign policy is stuck in place, and many infrastructure and other government projects are frozen. In contrast to dire predictions of chaos, everything is proceeding smoothly and some Spaniards are learning a valuable lesson about the resilience of society when left to its own (voluntary) devices. The lesson has been pithily summed up by Felix Pastor, a language teacher, who states:

No government, no thieves.”

“Why Do Police Sometimes Shoot Unarmed Citizens?”

Never have I seen the problem cops face regularly explained so thoroughly and dispassionately.


If You Are Going To Be Called A Bigot, Own It

This young woman, Irma Hinojosa, has done a study of Islam. She has read their teachings and rejects them. She gives her reasons and they are sound. One by one she addresses the laws and one by one she reminds us just how out of touch with modern western values they are. She also demands to know why western feminists are silent about Islamic mistreatment of women:

I find it truly bizarre that any person in their right mind would defend Islamic teachings. Men are in charge of women and are allowed to beat them? Am I supposed to be okay with this?

Quran 4:34 Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.”



Growing up I was always taught to be respectful of others and the way they chose to follow their religion or set of beliefs. Religion was never forced on me, however I was raised with Christian values and the teachings of Jesus Christ to love thy neighbor and be a forgiving person. I was raised with ethical, civil, and moral obligations as a human being. We all grow up with certain ethical and moral beliefs, some more ethical than others. This is a fact of life.

I briefly learned about the basics of Islam in Junior High and in High School. I never thought much of this belief system until I was in college years later. My World History professor, born in Africa, condemned Islam and taught us the truth about Muhammad their prophet, a hallucinogenic pedophile warlord who claimed “Allah” would speak to him. After many lessons, I knew that Islam was not a religion of peace but a “religion” of terror, subjugation, and conversion by force or death.”

“Texas officially withdraws from US Refugee Admissions Program; feds cannot assure security screening of all refugees”

“Governor Greg Abbott has officially pulled the plug on Texas’ participation in the federal refugee resettlement program after the Obama Administration rejected specific security conditions.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Greg Abbott seem to be in sync this week on protecting Texas from not adequately screened refugees.

The move by the Texas governor stops the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (THHSC) from coordinating the resettlement of these refugees that the Obama Administration has repeatedly said they cannot certify not to be a threat to the residents of the state. His action follows the rejection of a proposal announced previously where Texas officials demanded a certification that the refugees were not a security threat and a limit on the number of refugees to the original 2016 plan.”

The Next Goal Of The Left: Destroy The Excellence Of The USMC

Poor little snow-weenie didn’t like Marine Corps boot camp. No one likes Marine Corps boot camp. It’s that way for good reason. But this little man suffered emotional trauma and has set out to destroy the institution. That’s how progressives roll. If they don’t like something, even if it’s valuable and has been working superbly for hundreds of years, they can not respect it for what it is and that they don’t have what it takes to finish it. Instead they will, without remorse, destroy a great thing because they got their little sensibilities chafed.

Within months, he began suffering a breakdown. He was hospitalized with suicidal thoughts and refused to continue training at Pensacola, Fla. He was sent home with an “other-than-honorable” discharge, according to military documents.

In November, he and his father, Troy, began fighting his discharge, saying his breakdown was the result of the abusive environment at Parris Island.

“They say it’s a rite of passage to us,” said Weaver, 21, of the abuse. “That that’s why they put us through hell. But in no way is it benefiting us, or anything. It’s pointless. I just felt like someone has to say something, and I know I’m probably going to get a lot of flak and whatnot, but it’s the right thing to do.”

There Is A Reason They Are Called ‘Riot Guns’

Fred Reed has a new post up that deals with riots across the country and what to expect in the future. If you read it you will find many points that you agree with.

When government will not or cannot enforce the laws, people prepare to go it alone. This merits attention. It won’t get it. Instead we will hear from the media about gun nuts and white racism, about slavery and discrimination and how we need to confiscate guns leaving black criminals as the only ones that have them. (It will not be expressed so candidly.) When part of the population arms to defend against attack by another part, it is time to think.”

Interestingly, Mason Dixon Tactical has a piece up about defensive guns – and the bayonet.

I was asked the other day if I thought a semi auto rifle like the AR or AK was a good “Anti riot” gun. My response was that although either of those rifles would do fine, I was a bigger fan of the 12 gauge shotgun, specifically one designed with an extended magazine, rifle sights, and is designed to mount a bayonet.

The individual started laughing and said “I don’t see myself doing a bayonet charge, Sarge.” To which I replied, “Do you know of any other firearm that is designed for close in defense, can fire non lethal ammo like rubber balls, pepper dust, or pepper balls in the same repeatable way you can with lethal ammo, can accurately hit and drop a man sized target at 100 meters, and can immediately and effectively disable a vehicle engine with accurate hits.?” His answer was “No.”.

The shotgun isn’t necessarily a “Death Dealer”, but it generally is a “Fight Stopper”.”

Shotguns with short barrels are referred to as ‘Riot Guns’. If the subject is defense during a riot they should come up. They are infinitely more effective than handguns and a lot easier to hit with.

The subject of bayonets, though, is interesting. It transforms the pump shotgun into something far deadlier than it started out. It also tells everyone that the owner expects he may have to deal with violence at arms length.

The writer has some data on shotguns and ammunition. It’s worth a read.
