VDH: Trump And The American Divide


We are not even two countries.

And the prospects for reconciliation approach zero.


Or war.

Keep your edge honed.

And your head on a swivel.


Plans For The Inauguration?

Just lovely.

Just watch.

The Angry Man


Head over to Brock’s place and read.

The Angry Men (and the Angry Women) are, in my opinion, the decisive variable in the Upcoming Festivities.

As Brushbeater pointed out the other day, that which has been done in the past has failed and is not worthy of repetition.

Going forward, if people are wise enough to change course, the history of this country can and will be changed by the Deplorables.

The Reds are going to Red.

The Government Stooges are going to stooge.

The Petty Nobility of so-called ‘leaders’ are going to continue to audition for the gibbet or the guillotine.

Jackboots are going to jackboot.

But what will the real Americans do?

Time will tell.

A Message From Bill Buppert


From correspondence:

Subject: Moon Landings


In this era of fake news, there is nothing new here; the USG and its media megaphones have always done this.

I highly recommend everyone take an evening to read McGowan’s brilliant analysis of the Never Ascend to Space Again (NASA) follies in the 1960s and the “legend”.

McGowan has an interesting list of firsts you won’t find paraded in a government schools (part VII):

The ‘debunkers’ are right about one thing though: the list of Soviet firsts that I included in an earlier post in this series is not entirely accurate. Truth be told, I appear to have sold the Soviets short by leaving out a number of the early accomplishments of their space program, including a couple of firsts that the United States was unable to match for decades. Here then is a more complete list of Russian firsts in the years leading up to and during the alleged Apollo missions:

May 15, 1957 – The Soviet Union tests the R-7 Semyorka, the world’s first intercontinental ballistic missile.
October 4, 1957 – The Soviets launch Sputnik 1, Earth’s first manmade satellite.
November 3, 1957 – A dog named Laika becomes the first animal to enter Earth orbit aboard Sputnik 2. Unfortunately for Laika though, she isn’t booked for a return flight.
January 2, 1959 – Luna 1 becomes the first manmade object to leave Earth’s orbit.
September 13, 1959 – After an intentional crash landing, Luna 2 becomes the first manmade object on the Moon.
October 6, 1959 – Luna 3 provides mankind with its first look at the far side of the Moon.
August 20, 1960 – Belka and Strelka, aboard Sputnik 5, are the first animals to safely return from Earth orbit.
October 14, 1960 – Marsnik 1, the first probe sent from Earth to Mars, blasts off.
February 12, 1961 – Venera 1, the first probe sent from Earth to Venus, blasts off.
April 12, 1961 – Yuri Gagarin, riding aboard the Vostok 1, becomes the first man in Earth orbit.
May 19, 1961 – Venera 1 performs the first ever fly-by of another planet (Venus).
August 6, 1961 – Gherman Titov, aboard the Vostok 2, becomes the first man to spend over a day in space and the first to sleep in Earth orbit.
August 11 & 12, 1962 – Vostok 3 and Vostok 4 are launched, the first simultaneous manned space flights (though they do not rendezvous).
October 12, 1964 – Voskhod 1, carrying the world’s first multi-man crew, is launched.
March 18, 1965 – Aleksei Leonov, riding aboard the Voskhod 2, performs the first space-walk.
February 3, 1966 – Luna 9 becomes the first probe to make a controlled, ‘soft’ landing on the Moon.
March 1, 1966 – Venera 3, launched November 16, 1965, becomes the first probe to impact another planet (Venus).
April 3, 1966 – Luna 10 becomes the first manmade lunar satellite.
October 30, 1967 – Cosmos 186 and Cosmos 188 become the first unmanned spacecraft to rendezvous and dock in Earth orbit. The United States will not duplicate this maneuver for nearly four decades.
January 16, 1969 – Soyuz 4 and Soyuz 5 become the first manned spacecraft to dock in Earth orbit and the first to exchange crews.
November 17, 1970 – Lunokhod 1, the first robotic rover to land on and explore an extraterrestrial body, lands on the Moon. Twenty-seven years later, the United States lands its very first robotic rover on Mars.
December 15, 1970 – Venera 7 becomes the first probe to make a soft landing on another planet (Venus).
April 19, 1971 – Salyut 1 becomes the world’s first orbiting space station.
August 22, 1972 – Mars 2 becomes the first probe to reach the surface of Mars.

If you presume everything you hear from the government is a lie, you are at an advantage over your fellow Helots.

Critical thinking is simply thinking about thinking to improve your thinking through better thinking. Systems engineering is simply examining complex systems to make them better. That’s it. Think for yourself.


Bill Buppert

To be clear: I know that the “we can win in Vietnam” story from the USG was widely known to be a lie by insiders by 1965.

I also am pretty damned sure that ol’ Lee Harvey wasn’t alone in shooting at Big Joe’s kid back in Dallas.



It’ll break my heart if it turns out to be a scam.

But even if it continues to hold up over time and logic, the essential point of the .pdf above holds eternally true:

“…It’s not being lied to about the Moon landings that people have a problem with, it is the realization that comes with that revelation: if they could lie about that, they could lie about anything….

Explication Of A Theme


Theme: Domestic Political Violence In FUSA 2017 & Beyond

BLUF: It will suck and you ain’t ready. But it’s coming anyway. Fast.

Medium: The following Spotify tweet collections:

Parts I & II

Part III

Part IV

Part V

Read all of this material; if you must choose (and save the rest for reading tonight), read Part V.

But then go back for the rest.

You do know that the Dems/Reds as a group and not a few Repubs have already started the political groundwork efforts, yes?

You will need to be truly Deplorable in what is coming.

Nor making making that passé hand gesture.

Denninger: Why We’re Doomed


“Healthcare” for Free Shit America will cause a total collapse of the FUSA budget in just a few years.

Accelerated by higher interest rates impacting the outstanding FedGov debt, I’d respectfully add.

If you thought all was going to be OK, think again.

Team Culper Sends: Intel Exercise Beginning 19 JAN – Battletracking the Inauguration Protests


Starting Thursday, 19 JAN, I’ll be hosting a free event in Austin, TX for anyone who wants to battle track the reds and dindus protesting the Inauguration. Just like we did with the Ferguson riots and the GOP Convention protests, we’ll producing real-time intelligence on the marches, protests, and riots. This is an excellent learning opportunity as we delve into Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield/Community and cover the Intelligence Cycle. By Thursday night, we’ll begin tracking the event once things pick up. (If you want to attend this event from out of town, I’ve negotiated a discounted rate at the hotel. There are numerous other hotels in the area, too.)

The event costs nothing and I’ll provide drinks and order pizza/Chinese/whatever for lunch and dinner. Volunteers need to bring a be-know-do attitude and be prepared to learn the battle rhythm of an event like this. This will be real-time, real-world, hands-on intelligence gathering, mainly OSINT and SIGINT/COMINT, as we’ll have radio operators in the DC area, too.

On that point, if you’re going to the Inauguration and would like to provide us with on the ground reporting, please get in touch. You’ll be feeding a group of volunteers information and we can send back a picture of the overall security situation.

If you run a company and/or service and would like to sponsor this event, also please get in touch. You will be on our live streams on Stitcher and the FO Podcast, and Facebook/YouTube for video.

If you’re interested in attending for a matter of hours or for the whole thing, you can reach me at rome (at) readfomag dot com. We would love to have a sponsor for this event, too.

I’ll get you the web address where we’ll have the live map up and running. This should be a really fun event and great learning opportunity. Thank you for the support.

From over the transom:

Before things got hot, a Kameraden was doing FID missions on the Dark Continent.

At an embassy meet and greet, there was (as he described) a piece of female Eurotrash, part of some NGO. She knew what he was, but was insistent, as the type are, on pontificating on things of which they’ve no clue.

On and on, about what a wonderful world it would be, if only there were no guns.

She was allowed to spew nonsense for awhile. When enough was enough, my friend put down his drink, looked her in the eye, and said:

Go ahead. Ban guns. Take them ALL away. Then, when no one’s left to oppose us, people like me, are going to tell people like you:

Get. In. The. Boxcar.

She paled, left for the restroom where she vomited, and left the function.

We’ve a limited window.

Stop thinking reactive.
