This week's poll from the Lester & Charlie Institute of Forward Thinking:

Gun sales have spiked since Obama's re-election. Petitions for secession have appeared in all 50 states. Sarah Palin is tweeting like crazy. Citizens with big guns are angry and they're itching for a fight. Is your government ready?

You'll be glad to know it is!

See, a "thought exercise" described in an article published by the non-profit Small Wars Journal (co-written by a retired Army colonel and a Civil War historian) tries to figure out what the federal government should do if, say, the frustrated Tea Party gets a little too caffeinated and forgets that their muskets and tricorne hats are supposed to be props.

What really scares the authors is the possibility that an armed teabagging rebellion wouldn't stand a chance of being dunked by local law enforcement -- because the locals would be too sympathetic to the rebels. Yes, it may sound paranoid. But it turns out that the U.S. Army's operating concept for 2016 to 2028 considers a threat by "radical U.S. citizens operating domestically and abroad" to be highly likely.

Conservatives were outraged that anyone was even considering such a scenario. The Washington Times called it "cartoonish" and "farcical."

We're not so sure. After all, just two years ago in her bid for the U.S. Senate, Nevada Republican Sharron Angle threatened that her criminally insane supporters would resort to "Second Amendment remedies" if the GOP didn't get its way. True, she lost. But not without getting 45 percent of the vote. And we're pretty sure that her 45 percent own a lot of guns.

Funny. Yet the guncrazed excuse for the 2nd Amendment is that Americans require these weapons in the event that their government gets overbearing and dictatorial. I'm surprised they've waited this long.

I say, follow the "Gullible Conservatives" with a camera and get them on film at the store with their food stamp card, or the doctor with there medicaid card, at the tax office putting in for a waiver on their property taxes, turning in the application for a Pell Grant, and walking into the Plan Parenthood Clinic.

here are a few more suggestions for how to stop the impending crush of zombiebaggerz:

- substitute krazy glue for their denture adhesives

- slash the tires on their motorized carts

- offer a huge 2 day sale at Walmart

- substitute valium for.....their other blue pill

- show a weekend marathon of "24"

- tell them the battle plans are online, but they need a secure wi-fi connection AND a password for access

but perhaps the easiest way to quell a TP uprising would be to tell them that General Mitt Romney will be leading their troops...

  L.B.  .. YOU MEAN LIKE, PIGEON POO, RIGHT !!! Oily sticky poo !!!  got it.

Based on a series of cases in the 1940s and 50s, it is not illegal for Americans to advocate the violent overthrow of the government; it is illegal, however, to advocate immediate action to overthrow the government.

However, I strongly agree that discretion is warranted

Those who banter about direct action may have to be suspected of being agents provocateur.

[. . . For the record, with reference to the domestic terrorism law and other terrorism laws, regulations and executive orders, universally, I do not morally (or otherwise) support acts that are dangerous to human life, violate criminal law and "appear to be intended" to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion . . ."]

I wonder what you'd have said if you'd witnessed the Obamanut liberal Irishman (who called me a racist for not voting for Obama) say with liberal tears in his eyes that he and his wife loved their adopted Ethiopian grandchild more than their natural grandchildren.

Now that I have a problem with!  Overcompensation, perhaps... or...or...

 

HAD A LADY GAS ATTENDANT AT THE SMITHS GROCERY GAS STATION, TELL

The majority of the masses will keep their haeds in the sand and deny that anything like dictatorship will ever happen . But one day they will awaken and find out , it happened and now they can't really do much about it . There is no talking with liberals about it or even trying to convince them . They all live in their little world of denial dispite what is happening right under their noses . God Help Us !

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
