4 years ago, noticing Rodham's unresponsive carcass being hefted into her hearse by her hired muscle was a "conspiracy". This year, Trump trying not to slip going down a slick ramp raises health concerns.

First? Good afternoon from the woods of Maine! Gov.Mills has deigned to opened the restaurants in southern Maine. What will be the cost of renaming all these bases? Oh,never mind.

Why don't we start by renaming every last damn piece of Robert Byrd crap and then we can get talking.

Looking at that list of Black Medal of Honor winners Calvin Rogers as a light colonel when he won the MOH---but he retired as a Major General.

Of course he won the MOH while commanding an artillery unit in the invasion of Cambodia--so maybe the woke will say he doesn't qualify.

But Trump does not gravitate towards "feel-good" when there is a chance for a shouting, divisive brawl.

From a link Jane posted at the end of the last thread about Biden:

Once I sat down, Biden got up and started to yell at me. He bellowed “you are going to lose this issue. You are going to lose this issue because the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment sounds good and the American people are stupid and will support anything that sounds good.”

Given what we’ve seen the past three months, and what between 40 and 50% of the electorate apparently is OK with, it’s hard to see where that statement is wrong.

James "Given what we’ve seen the past three months, and what between 40 and 50% of the electorate apparently is OK with, it’s hard to see where that statement is wrong."

I think the lesson from the last three months is we are now past having to worry about having the support of "a lot" of Americans before the government sets off down any path they want on their own.

The Infamous Ignatz

--Former Secretary of Defense Gates comes out in favor of re-naming the Army bases currently named for a bunch of Confederate losers and traitors who, BTW and thank Heaven, lost.--

Is it really beyond the grasp of someone as intelligent as TM to understand that these monuments and place names were placed there and maintained primarily to avoid humiliating and crushing a defeated South and to healing and reconciling the country after so great a rupture?

Is it also not apparent that those tributes to reunification and forgiveness are being targeted by people preaching divisiveness, unforgiveness and hate?

The Big Lie is never about duping anyone. It's about social pressure to cause conformity and compliance rather than independent thought by people who know in their heart the Big Lie is just that.

JamesD @4:11...many years ago,when the daughter had been in D.C. a few years,during one of our visits,her aunt and uncle and two young cousins drove from Pittsburgh to meet us there. Our nephew was probably eight years old and decided he was tired and bored. He asked us,"why is everything in this town named after Washington?"

It just occurred to me that all the broken glass and looting might resuscitate some shopping malls. If the shoppers aren't concerned about the violence, the shopkeepers might be.

cathyf

You know, there’s a reason why America stole all those Confederate heroes after the war. The Civil War had two sides: the side that lost fought for the idea that their 11 states made up a separate country, while the side that won fought for the idea that the people they were fighting were their own fellow countrymen. The flag that led Union troops into battle had 33, 34 & 35 stars. (34 was Kansas, 35 was West Virginia).

After the war, the people on the ground who put the country back together were the American veterans who erected monuments to their American heroes. They were opposed by Democrats, who all along agreed that the Confederacy was a different country.

150 years later, when all of those 150-year anniversaries flowed by over that 5-year span, it was very quiet and those anniversaries went uncelebrated and unremembered. Because there was a Democrat in the White House, and Democrats have never believed that the Union cause was right.

Now, 155 years after we all thought that the Democrats had finally lost the argument about whether the southern states were “us” or “them”, the Democrats have sent rioters into the streets to repudiate our victory at Appomattox.

The Main Slime Media did more to investigate ‘John Barron’ than they have the ‘John Roberts’ on Epstein’s flight manifest.

Most AF Bases are named after Air Force Officers who demonstrated heroism or first of a kind air service. Some are named after their location like Plattsburgh AFB. But thank God we didn't have a Confederate air force in the Civil War except for the occassoinal hot air balloon.

D

The beginning tone of this thread hit me the wrong way.
My husband is a Civil War buff and we have seen many of the battlefields in the South.
Renaming these forts to me insults our history.
The same with the statues.
If you want to rename or take down statues there needs to be a vote by the people of that particular state and then they should be placed in a museum if the people of the state vote that way.
This is vandalism tearing them down like the Taliban did.
Disgraceful and lawless.
Again the inmates have taken over the asylum.
President Trump is blunt and pulls no punches.
I happen to like blunt people because you know where you stand with them.
Also I no longer want to see any relatives of these criminals whining on tv after these hoods resisted arrest.
Go after police you take your chances.
You just might end up in a bad situation that had you complied you wouldn’t find yourself in.

Exactly,cathyf! When Obama didn't visit any Civil War battlefields during the 150th anniversary,I finally got a clue and thought WTH is with this guy?! Think of all the battlefields in the backyard of Washington,DC that he could have visited.

Cathyf:
Excellent post.
We have taught our son all about the history of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.
I detest this attempt to destroy our history because to them trying to appease people and pander for votes is more important than respecting our America and our flag.

While Pelosi galore is considering renaming military bases, I can think of one that should fit right in for democrats. Kunsan airbase in Korea, better known as The Kun (pronounced koon) in Air Force circles. Their unofficial motto: There's no slack at The Kun.

The Civil War is a mandate to any young person to learn about and study for their own sense of history. Once, you decide the Civil War is not history then it truly is Fukiyama's "The End of History".

MissM posted a good (brief: 18 min) interview with VDH by Sebastian Gorka. VDH mentioned a couple of things:
1) Petraeus (for example) could have pushed for base renaming any time during his tenure but waited till now.
2) These sequential statements by military and ex-mil leaders are clearly meant to undermine Trump. They are not thoughtful suggestions.

Let's be clear. Every possible weapon is being brought to bear on Trump's re-election. If only the idiot Dem primary voters hadn't selected a senile racist ancient white man they'd have a better chance LOL.

I'm told ticket requests for the 1st Trump rally are now almost at 1 million. The last Biden online (convention address) drew I believe 68 people. Most people think the president's "bombast" is warranted and expresses what they think.

His enemies have turned him into the hero of "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". In the process the people who consider themselves the elites, have exposed themselves as bitter, intransigent idiots.When he wins again, they'll be like the eunuchs departing the Chinese palace in "The Last emperor", rattling their now desiccated man parts in fancy containers.

Do you really think that naming all of these bases after black medal of honor winners will solve anything? How naive.

Let's just strip away the heroes who founded our nation and preserved it over and over again. There are plenty of them. Let's forget the trauma of Reconstruction and the purpose of the names of military installations and ships, and shred the land again. Bases are named for historical purposes. Ripping up old territory never advanced a cause, but I can tell you losing a place and a name that was dear to you can tear out your heart.

We are dealing with ONE murder that hasn't even gone to a preliminary hearing AFAIK, and woke people want to rip up the country yet again. Unfucking believable.

This sounds like a new edition of 4D, from a commenter at New Neo:

Rumors are flying in the conservative legal blogosphere that Chief Justice Roberts joined the majority so that he could assign Gorsuch the opportunity to write the opinion. Otherwise, it would have been a 5-4 opinion written by Ginsberg.

Why does that matter? Well, it appears that Gorsuch took pains in the majority opinion to ensure that this wouldn’t affect religious organizations. It’s unlikely that Ginsberg would have shown that kind of deference.

If true, it's a bad sign that Gorsuch is so far off base on this, and unfortunate that his senior colleagues on the right couldn't take him to the woodshed to knock some sense into him.

If it was going to be Biden, and he still had a functioning survival instinct, he'd have already picked the VP, which would have made him much more difficult to Arkancide. (Would his replacement get to fire his VP choice and make a new choice? What if his replacement isn't higher on the social justice hierarchy than his choice? What if his choice is a "black" half-Jamaican, half-Indian woman?)
