Fire With Fire

I want to live in a society where someone (on the Left or Right) can say something terrible, apologize, and then go on with their life. I really do.

Unfortunately, the Left and the mainstream media disagree, and to prove it they have launched scorched earth campaigns against everyone from rodeo clowns to college speakers to the number one star of cable news (O’Reilly) — and they all went down.

Jon Nolte with a good explainer on the shift in tactics. Vox Day is more direct In his approach. This is a war, and has been. If you are weak knees about pushing back on people who gleefully destroy lives for holding opposing views kindly fuck off and get out of the game.


Barack Obama’s team secretly disclosed years of illegal NSA searches spying on Americans | Circa News – Learn. Think. Do.

More than 5 percent, or one out of every 20 searches seeking upstream Internet data on Americans inside the NSA’s so-called Section 702 database violated the safeguards Obama and his intelligence chiefs vowed to follow in 2011, according to one classified internal report reviewed by Circa.

Wow, who would have thought a petty turd like Obama would have abused the 702 database? I was steeped in old 70s thrillers like the Parilax View and Three Days of the Condor. Disappointing these deep state guys are such guck ups.

John Podesta Unloads on Trump – POLITICO Magazine


This article is unintentionally hilarious.

The wide-ranging conversation covered everything from infighting on last year’s Clinton campaign (“if those 70,000 votes had gone differently in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, … we would have all been geniuses”)

If we had won the election we would have been winners, but we lost and I was the conductor on the biggest train wreck of a campaign in political history. With managerial skills and insights like this he better hope his Hot Dog Stand doesn’t go out of business.

ISIS Drones Containment and Persuasion.

The move to encircle then kill as many jihadists in place as possible — rather than letting them exit a city and targeting them as they flee — reflects an increased urgency to stop battle-hardened jihadists bringing their military expertise and ideology back to European capitals and other areas.

This article lays out the current plan to destroy ISIS. Apparently Scott Adams laid out this plan in 2004. fascinating stuff.

SC-05 Runoff Breakdown – Decision Desk HQ

As the primary was very competitive, we were looking at were the areas that didn’t support Pope or Norman went. Looking at the first map in this post, this would be the orange and purple precincts. The third place finisher, Tom Mullikin, who’s base was in Kershaw County, stayed neutral. The fourth place finisher, Tom Connelly, endorsed Norman.

Great breakdown of the runoff by the best in the business.

Revisiting Haing Ngor’s murder: ‘Killing Fields’ theory won’t die – latimes

I was part of Operation Bevel Edge with a CIF Platoon with the III MEF. I was a machine gunner with Lima Company 3/3 and our machine gun section was spun up by SOTG to be ready.

I was off CIF duty and was preparing to go from Camp Hansen to MCBH Kaneohe Bay. Our gear was polarized and we were field dating the barracks to kill time. 90% of us were nursing hangovers from Kinville.

The Cambodian Civil War started in roughly 1970 and continued through mid to late 90’s which is where our platoon came in. I became interested in the area and the Killing Fields in particular.

I followed the trials of Pol Pot’s regime with interest and the attempt to turn the site of such brutality into a vacation destination. Somehow, I missed the story of Haing Noir’s homicide. 

I was aware he passed away but not the nature of his murder or the possible involvement of the “Long Arm of the Khmer Rouge.” He was a brave man, and did much to shed light on the horrors perpetrated on him and his people.
