  1. You just blew me away! I didn’t know any of this!

  2. Donald Trump spoke admiringly of the Communist Chinese government’s massacre of students at Tiananmen Square:

    QUOTE from Trump: “When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength.”

    Trump also praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un:

    QUOTE from Trump: “You’ve got to give him credit. How many young guys (he was like 26 or 25 when his father died) take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden… he goes in, he takes over, he’s the boss.

    It’s incredible. He wiped out the uncle, he wiped out this one, that one. This guy doesn’t play games.”



    I think Trump is a would-be tyrant who worships power, and fantasizes about being a dictator and ruling with an iron fist.

    If he wins in November, get ready for a federalized police force, Gestapo-type police powers, a Patriot Act on steroids, and universal background checks for gun purchases (no doubt portrayed as a “great deal” by Donald).

    Even if Trump doesn’t turn against his white supporters, future presidents will use draconian laws passed by Trump to oppress white people.

    An authoritarian Trump presidency will advance the ball for Team Tyranny, just as George W. Bush’s presidency did.

    • AmPat,

      And what the fuck do you think fUSA would look like under your heroine Hillary Clinton ?

      You Democrats (Communists) are no better than a Muslim.

      • It seems to me the point is that laws will be passed under “I’m your friend and I need these extra restrictive laws. I promise to never use them against you.”

        There are no good options in the presidential race.

      • Good to see the “non-keyboard commando” chiming in……. The irony grows thicker with every post of yours I read.

        • So Lol….I assume you’re referring to me. If so, explain your “keyboard commando” reference. If you can.

          While you’re at it, what “irony” are you refering to ?

          Seems you’re just another Trump basher and a Republican establishment supporter. You GOPe folks are thick as thieves.

      • QUOTE: “And what the fuck do you think fUSA would look like under your heroine Hillary Clinton ?”

        Hillary Clinton is Donald Trump’s hero, not mine.

        She and Bill were at Trump’s wedding and were/are close friends of Trump.

        Her’s what your idol Trump said about Hillary:

        “Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman,” he told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren in March of 2012. “I am biased because I have known her for years. I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard.”

        “I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job. I like her,” he added of the then-secretary of state.

    • Mark Matis

      PAST Presidents have ALREADY used draconian laws to oppress white people. And Trump, as President, can pass NO laws. It is your fine friends in Congress who do so. Regardless of which side of the aisle they purport to stand.

    • And the “conservative, patriotic” masses worship him a the masses worshipped obama in 2008.

      Your bit about a man who worships power is 100% correct and ive even had a few of his supporters say they dont mind if he acts like such if “it helps restore rightful liberty and constitutional govt”.

      Anger right now is blinding people’s reason and decision making skills. Its no different then the hop and chamge crap from year ago.

      • Stewed,

        “Anger right now is blinding people’s reason and decision making skills.”

        Thank you for your astute observation. What is YOUR solution to the Hillary Clinton nomination ?

  3. In other news, Trump is already reportedly compromising on immigration.

    He allegedly told the New York Times that his immigration policies are negotiable, in an off the record interview.

    The Times apparently has an audio recording of the interview, which they say they will not release without Trump’s permission.



    • AmPat,

      Odd, how you attack Mr. Trump but you’re so accepting of the known scoundrel Barack Hussein soetoro-obama.

      You Democrats (Communists) masquerading as conservatives and “patriots” are a joke. Then again you just may be a disgruntled Jeb Bush supporter.

      BTW….what is it with you clowns who use the word “patriot” in your screen name ? Patriot to what, the DNC ?

      • SameNoKami

        AmPat probably still thinks we can vote our way out of this mess.

      • You trumpkins live in the land of cognitive dissonance. Everything he’s ever stood for before entering as a candidate was on the far left and wanting for more big fed.gov.
        He was fun in the beginning when. He was kicking rinos in their shriveled balls, but only a fool would believe anything he says… he’s about on par with his good friends (politically and socially) when it comes to honesty.

        • LoL,

          Keep waiting.

          In fact why don’t you refresh my memory as to the wonderful efforts I’ve made to sustain your Freedoms and Liberty.

          In the meantime why don’t YOU comment on your favored POTUS candidate ?

          Keep up the Alinsky…..it is indicative of the mindset of fools.

        • Brian,

          Why the term “trumpkins” ? Is that your miniscule effort to denigrate those of us, 10s of millions of “fools”, as you call us ?

          Why don’t you cite some specifics as to why the “fools” are wrong ? Additionally, why don’t you provide some substantive reasoning behind whoever YOU believe should be annointed POTUS….you know, one of the establishment hacks like Clinton II, Sanders, Cruz, Bush, Rubio, Christie, etc. ?

          Like your Butt Buddy LoL….I’ll wait.

      • No more ironic than a “non-keyboard commando” using a veiled reference to 3 percenters in his screen name…… Remind us again how much more you’re doing than the rest of the “non-keyboard commandos”….. I’ll wait.

      • QUOTE: “Odd, how you attack Mr. Trump but you’re so accepting of the known scoundrel Barack Hussein soetoro-obama.”

        Where have I ever been accepting of Obama?

        Go back and read my previous posts on this website.

        QUOTE: “You Democrats (Communists) masquerading as conservatives and “patriots” are a joke. Then again you just may be a disgruntled Jeb Bush supporter.

        BTW….what is it with you clowns who use the word “patriot” in your screen name ? Patriot to what, the DNC ?”

        Yawn…more ad hominem attacks.

        How about instead of simply whining like a child and name-calling, you actually respond to the points I made?

        I noticed how you didn’t do that in previous threads, even though I replied substantively to your posts.

  4. I suppose we should take consolation in the fact that the gov can’t get into encrypted phones …….yet.

    • Dude, we are being tag teamed here. This whole Apple versus FBI inception thing is Kabuki theater.
      As Patrick Henry said it “I Smell a Rat”. The fix was in before this began because the fix was in for the feds to obtain backdoor status into Apple encryption. There is no doubt to the outcome because the outcome is established already. If the feds really had an Apple as an adversary who refused to comply, they would have already assassinated somebody in the corporate structure to get the rest to obey.
      This show of resisting bullshit is a fucking joke. It’s quid pro quo cu bono so Apple has plausible deniability and using the FBI as the stalking horse.
      They just excited LeVoy Finnicum and are running a kangaroo court farce to make political prisoners out of everyone associated with his corpse. These are the homicidal psychopaths who murdered over a hundred Americans in Waco and Ruby Ridge, involved in Fast & Furious. For them to be playing the “lawful” “Legal” game of tag in the courts and congress, that is so yesterday its preposterous.

  5. Trumps an establishment cnt. When will you people learn. There is no “alternative candidate”. But by all means keep voting. I’ll be over here sharpening my ax and building a rain water system. I may be just a low speed red neck but I fully intend to be one hell of a speed bump.

    • Tom,

      You Democrats (Communists) are all alike:

      “Trumps an establishment cnt.”

      Really ? What establishment ? How many times has he been “re-elected” ? How many times has he run for a political office and failed ?

      You folks will do anything to support your fellow Marxist Hillary Clinton, eh ? I would think you and people like American, hahahahahahahaha, “Patriot” would be denouncing Sanders and especially Hillary Clinton. But you’re not. You’re attacking the ONLY individual opposing the scum Clinton, who could actually defeat the Democrats (Communists) POTUS nominee.

      Interesting while you and your homeboy AmPat bad-mouth Mr. Trump, you both ignore the real threat to our lives….Hillary Clinton ! Amazing. Simply amazing.

    • Tom, isn’t it obvious, the guy is fomenting a revolution. He is creating the most powerful weapon ever created. A plurality that has withdrawn consent from the political elite. It’s now nothing to do with who is president. This is an insurgency now.
      Trump isn’t running for president, he’s running through hell with an open can of gasoline.

      • And Hell is terrified.

      • QUOTE: “A plurality that has withdrawn consent from the political elite.”

        Yes, that plurality has withdrawn their consent from the existing elite, but they have instead blindly given their consent to Trump.

        What is the benefit of rejecting one set of authoritarian rulers, and replacing it with a personality cult?

        It’s reminiscent of how the Russians withdrew their consent from the Tsar and his elite, and instead gave their blind consent to Lenin and the Communists.

        As Stewie said, anger is clouding people’s judgment.

        The solution is to withdraw your consent from ALL the elite traitors, not to reject the Bushes and start worshiping Trump.

  6. This is how the regime kangaroo court’s you. How it justifies cold blooded murder of undesirable American’s. It is Waco in a nutshell. The war of northern aggression that has never ended. War against secession, secession of the mind and spirit. There is so much in this farce and spectacle of a show trial it will boil your blood. If it isn’t clear it is time to start breaking these political prisoners out of the gulags and Lubyanka prisons. They are imprisoned to shut them up, make others afraid, to rot away because who and what they are and represent is existential death to those in power. How so many of the government are so morally bankrupt and corrupt, the totality that so many is vindication of LeVoy Finnicum was right. Why he was executed.

    Burns Chronicles No 12 – Jon Ritzheimer and the Grand Jury

    …Perhaps a bit of background and educational foundation of SA Armstrong is in order. According to the Affidavit, she has been employed by the FBI for “one-and-a-half (1 ½) years”. Surely, that is sufficient time for a novice FBI Special Agent to prepare the foundation for a case that the Court, based upon a “Government’s Motion to Declare Case Complex, Vacate Dates, Set Status Hearing, and Exclude Time Under Speedy Trial Act“, is considering waiving, “the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial“, as protected by the Sixth Amendment.

    However, that is not all that is rather curious about SA Armstrong. This quote, from her credentials, “I have also acquired knowledge and information pertaining to violations of federal law from numerous other sources, including: … informants,” as if informants are a part of the educational curriculum of the “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity” agency of our government.

    Now, the Affidavit was signed on January 26, however, it excluded LaVoy Finicum from those named. So, we must assume that the Complaint was prepared and filed AFTER LaVoy was murdered on the side of US Highway 395.

    The Affidavit, with the exception of reference to videos and the arrest of Brian Cavalier (Budda) on January 11, both of which don’t require strong investigative skills, as the former only requires an internet connection, in the latter, access to the NCIC (National Crime Information Center) database, based upon events that occurred prior and up to January 7, 2016. It would seem that the government, then, has had well over a month to prepare their case. So, why do they want to deprive the accused patriots their constitutionally protected right to a speedy trial? After all, the government has unlimited agents, lawyers, resources, and money (ours) with which to prepare their case. The have already delayed “discovery”, removing time for preparation by the defense attorneys, who have limited manpower and resources.

    So, let’s look at the “public trial“. Suppose you were charged with a crime. Suppose, also, that the government wanted more time to make sure that they had all of the dirt that they could get on you. Suppose, further, that the government wanted to see if they could find evidence of a crime that they weren’t even aware of, by taking a little fishing trip to the Refuge. And, suppose that they did everything they could to prevent the defense attorneys from looking over their shoulders to see what sort of fish they might catch, maybe even planting some fish to justify the rather feeble case they already have.

    Now, we do have the Criminal Complaint, but as you will soon see, it is conjecture, not fact, at least in part. Most of the remainder is gross misrepresentation. The charges against the accused patriots are not based upon the Criminal Complaint, that is only justification for arrest warrants that were, demonstrably, issued after the arrests were made (hint: there was no arrest warrant for LaVoy Finicum, so the warrants would have been made out after they knew that they could not arrest a dead man.). Quite simply, they arrested six people and murdered one person, and without having the constitutionally required warrant. Within that Criminal Complaint (Redacted), we see that they have redacted (blocked out) only the month and date of birth, leaving in the years. Well, that is the first time in the federal judicial system (Beecher, Massey, Wolf, & Barbeau, etc.) where I have seen birthdates included, as they are really not relevant to the charges.

  8. Everyone is under the impression that people do not know who Trump is at heart. I think we all know.

    It is time for the elephant (and the jackass) to be killed.

    If you are going over a cliff, do you want to tap the brakes as you go over or do you want to make sure you get a full running jump so you hopefully land in the deep water away from the rocks.

    Yes, swimming will be hard and the currents pulling; however, with people like Trump or Hillary in charge then we will have absolute clarity of where the rocks are and it will make IFF a whole lot easier.

    • JV,

      “…..with people like Trump….in charge….”

      So JV, who would you like to see, or recommend, “in charge” ?

      Or are you suggesting Anarchy would be best for the citizenry ? Which, I believe is the ultimate expression of Freedom.

      What say you JV….who or what is your alternative to Mr Trump or Clinton II ?

      • Only weak incompetent cowardly men dismiss Anarchy. Learned helplessness is not anything to be proud about. It’s hard to respect slaves. Slaves will always remain POOR.
