Pompeo posts a picture

 An interesting choice under the circumstances, to be sure. Note that he's down to three-minute intervals. UPDATE: Make that one-minute intervals.


  • A few final thoughts: The United States of America is the greatest country in the history of civilization.
  • There are consequences for interfering in the democratic process. Starting today, we are imposing visa restrictions on those involved in election interference in Tanzania. We remain committed to working together to advance democracy and mutual prosperity for both our countries.

Crossing the Delaware or crossing the Rubicon. Whichever the analogy, it looks these might go our way.

I figured out the FBI investigation into the troops narrative. They are likely updating or upgrading the security clearances of them which the FBI would be involved with for TSC clearance. Takes time because of the interviews. It's likely that most if not all the troops have secret clearance and if it's fairly up to date it wouldn't be as hard to upgrade

It is not that interesting, given the high price of silver and being that George Washington was just across the Delaware River to try to find the silver dollar that he threw across it. Secretary Pompeo and myself were both Tankers in the Army. And while I consider myself intelligent, I am not at the graduate first at West Point level. So while BB is making funny jokes about meal team six and the National Guard. I would not associate Pompeo s weight with a lack of intelligence, and definitely not underestimate him. P.S. When I was also in the National Guard, I made jokes about it as well; saying that it was mostly just for drinking coffee, eating donuts, and telling war stories (I didn't join till 2002, so not real stories). Regarding BBs joke, when I was on active duty; I was always well under the weight limit and always passed my Physical Training Test by a good margin. However, when the Army/National Guard was not paying the bills and I had over an hour commute to work and back... I didn't feel too hot when I was laid off and the State told me that I couldn't get unemployment because I already had a job... my $200 a month National Guard enlistment!

Mencius Moldbug thinks that the American revolutionaries only won because the Whigs in the British parliament were on their side.

>...what on earth is the British strategy? Why do the redcoats seem to be spending so much time just hanging around in New York or Philadelphia? Valley Forge is literally twenty miles from Philly. Okay, I realize, it’s winter. But come on, it’s twenty miles.

>I am neither a specialist in the period, nor a historian at all. So I will simply point out one undisputed fact in the matter, which is that two of the leading British generals, Howe and Cornwallis, were Whigs—in fact, Whig MPs.

>The cause of revolutionary violence is not oppression. The cause of revolutionary violence is weak government.

>...insurgency in the modern age is not what it appears to be. It is an illusion constructed for a political audience. If Fisher is right, it was not the Continental Army that prevailed in 1783, but the alliance of the Continental Army and the British Whigs. Together they produced a new Whig republic to replace the old one that had collapsed with Cromwell’s death.

- from https://www.unqualified-reservations.org/2008/05/ol5-shortest-way-to-world-peace/

Furthermore he thinks that "There has never been a successful right-wing insurgency."

If this is true, and if the Good Emperor truly is going to arrest the American "Ten Attendants" and overthrow their bureaucracy, does that mean there is a left wing group is backing him? Some shadowy organization that will use the attempted restoration of the republic as a means to seize power? If so, wjo could it be? Is it the group to which my nose is pointing me?

The President’s Advisory 1776 Commission,January 2021

"Far from creating an omniscient body of civil servants led only by “pragmatism” or “science,” though, progressives instead created what amounts to a fourth branch of government called at times the bureaucracy or the administrative state. This shadow government never faces elections and today operates largely without checks and balances. The founders always opposed government unaccountable to the people and without constitutional restraint, yet it continues to grow around us." (p.13)

"The choice before us now is clear. Will we choose the truths of the Declaration? Or will we fall prey to the false theories that have led too many nations to tyranny?" (p. 16)

"The Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.

Crossing the Rubicon is the better presentation for those of a greater knowledge of history. Iconographically, Crossing the Delaware is more readily available to the recollection of the most basically educated of Americans, and members of such empire. In a post literate society. On the latter imagery, less a matter of tactics or strategy and dialectic (fact), and more one of revolution and rhetoric (emotion). The Hessians are gon’na get it. And remember kiddos, Violence Is Never Acceptable, or so the blood stained Enemy says. Let history be the judge.

I have been to Washington's crossing several times over the years. There are parks on both sides of the river and are worth the visit. The river is only 300 yards wide at this point--though the painting gives a much more expansive view. The man holding the flag is supposed to be LT James Monroe--the future 5th President of the US. The man leading over the edge of the boat in front of Monroe (from the viewpoint of the viewer) is General Nathaniel Greene (victor of the future Southern campaign).

An important point to remember is that Washington's attack on Trenton initially did not go according to plan. The weather badly delayed Washington's time table. Two other columns were also suppose to cross the river at other locations, but they did not make it for various reasons. Enemy spies had informed the Hessian commander of probable American intentions, but he foolishly shrugged them off. One such letter was found on his dead body (unread) after the battle.

Washington could have easily lost his nerve--arriving at Trenton after sunrise (8 AM) with no word on the whereabouts of the other columns. He might have believed that he had lost the element of surprise at this point. Trenton was not a sure thing.

The best way to summarize Washington's resolve is the following. General Sullivan sent a courier [just outside of Trenton] to tell Washington that the weather was wetting his men's gunpowder. Washington replied, "Tell General Sullivan to use the bayonet. I am resolved to take Trenton."

"There has never been a successful right-wing insurgency."

Depends on how you think about it. Until our modern times, almost all governments were right wing. An insurgency would be called a rebellion. It would be one right wing group against another, and the winner would be right wing.

The word "revolution" came from the French Revolution. The word implied turning things around, changing everything, and therefore not a rebellion. Of course the word is now corrupted, and every dump-ass rebellion is a revolution.

Maybe Pompeo doesnt know this history or meaning of the picture by Leutze. Its not Caesar crossing the Rubicon to end the republic and install himself as emperor. Its a boat load of diversity, citizen solders, with the father of the country, whom was given the real opportunity to be the god emperor to instead, stood down in humility, stepped back for a peaceful transition of power. It is an example for all to follow.

"For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the Independence and Liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings, and successes."

Moldbug is a fool, but he may not be totally wrong on this. I recall that Ol' Georgie was facing fellow Masons, and certainly there was an anti-war faction in Parliament. The British officer class was never famed for its competence, but even by those low standards, the war was not prosecuted very well.

He's either trolling the hell out of everyone or it's go time. I don't know which is more believable.

Where is this Pompeo ticker everyone is referencing? Not on his Twitter - just checked.

Pompeo tweeted John 8:32, "and yet shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."

If you don't see that as a signal, you are deliberately resisting the Holy Spirit.

Also his next tweet trolling election fraud in Tanzania.

Deep State my a$$.

Blogger Akulkis January 19, 2021 12:26 PM  

>> I didn't feel too hot when I was laid off and the State told me that I couldn't get unemployment because I already had a job... my $200 a month National Guard enlistment!

That's not WORK, it's TRAINING.
Therefore, you were, indeed, eligible for unemployment.

Anyone in the Guard and Reserves who isn't AGR is on a TRAINING status.

Biden can't be sworn in because if he's sworn in he's the President and whoever puppets him can issue 'lawful' commands.

One of my coworkers is NG and working to move up in the ranks. A couple of months ago, he announced he was going to be deployed for a year. This surprised all of us.

When I asked him about his most recent training exercises, he said, "Zombie apocalypse."

"What?"

"Think of it as riot control with sprinkles."

Tanzania?

Blogger John Adams January 19, 2021 1:02 PM  

@78 Yes, given Ratcliffe's pronouncement on interference, it seems reasonable to infer that Pompeo's reference to Tanzania is a non-so-thinly veiled reference to the US.

@98 Including Gina Haspel in the list of CIA greats is interesting. Disinformation? Or debunking the stories about the server being seized?

"security clearances of them which the FBI would be involved"

The FBI has nothing to do with military security clearance investigations.

Ashley Biden is prepping us for China Joe's assassination, and this is the assassination team. Presumably they will have paperwork to get past all President Trump's military?

I saw tankers? an oil rig? some maybe Navy ships? Where along that very long coastline was this taken?

Logan’s Run allusions are always appropriate. And don’t forget Soylent Green is made from people.

“The word implied turning things around, changing everything”

Or ending up right where you started! IOW, rebellions and revolts are reliably cyclical. Because as the maxim goes: in the end there’s only the war.

@95: Yes, the Chinese are using Cargo ships to invade the US.

They will take LA when the Union gets around to unloading their gear and then take the rest of the US!

yeah, lotsa cargo ships, tankers. But seems like a lot of navy in there too. I lived in LA for 2 years, worked occasionally in Long Beach. I know it's a busy port, but I never seen them so stacked up like that. Could be nothin, sorry

>> That's Trump crossing the Moskva River to protect Pelosi and Hillary from Putin, and prove, once and for all, that he's not Putin's stooge.

Which would be funny to because in less than a year, his army would be receiving weapons from the French, heavily subsidized by Russia.

My husband used to do security investigations for a living. You could not be more wrong. First, security clearances are on a need to know basis. Ergo, if you only need confidential, that’s what you get; not secret, not TS, not TS/SCI. My husband won’t say why but is extremely confident that the overwhelming majority of NG deployed to DC don’t have TS. Nor do they need it, as if they did they would not be deployed now.

Second, FBI only does their own clearance investigations and high level political presidential appointees’ clearances, possibly Members of Congress who are on the intel committee, etc.

Over 90% of security clearance investigations are conducted by DCSA or the few companies remaining that work the DCSA contract. Prior to DCSA being stood up, it was NBIB, and prior to that it was OPM FIS.

Fourth, as other commenters underneath you have stated, you have to fill out an SF-86, wait for months, do interviews, and ultimately wait for an adjudicator’s decision.

It's down to just two or three months now, it used to be six to twelve or longer in the 0bammy years.
