Stick (grenades) and Stones will Break your Bones

Russian Model 1912 ‘Lantern Head’ grenade

Concussion stick grenade, TNP explosive charge, timed fuse, grip safety. One of the few pre-WW1 modern grenade designs.

It doesn’t take much to guess that this is a Russian hand grenade. I’m sure that they worked some of the time, we know that they were heavy and rugged, and if the fuse didn’t burn, you could use them to stave your enemy’s skull in.

Bills

National Guard operations are about two weeks from grinding to a halt as a $520 million tab to reimburse the force for protecting lawmakers during its months-long Capitol Hill mission remains in limbo amid partisan bickering.

If Congress fails to act quickly, the National Guard will shut down most training through Oct. 1, the start of fiscal 2022, Gen. Daniel Hokanson, the head of the National Guard warned Congress in May.

Congress won’t act quickly and may just stiff the states for the $520 million for the bullshit occupation of the nation’s capital. There is a lesson in this. Don’t trust Congress or the Federal Government.

 

Meme-of-the-Day

 

Furthermore

We learned this week that when the President uses two terms, the situation is the exact opposite of how he portrays it. When he used the term “literally”, you can now rationally conclude that he means “figuratively” at best, and “fictionally” at worst. When he says something is “not hyperbole”, you can be assured that what he is saying is totally hyperbolic and histrionic. The purpose behind his use of these terms is to distract from and discourage any rational discussion of the voting bills in question. It is a typical rhetorical ploy along the lines of “it must be obvious to anyone with a brain” [when it is not], or “no rational person could possibly disagree” [when many rational people might not agree] and of the sort of rhetorical device that you see from freshman high school debaters, but otherwise unworthy of any serious person engaged in public discourse. From the mouth of the President, it is pure indefensible demagoguery.

The Reason for the Treason

Tim Allen is credited with writing this.

Here are some interesting points to think about prior to 2020, especially to my friends on the fence, like moderate Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents and the never-Trump Republicans and those thinking of “walking away” from the Democratic party.

Women are upset at Trump’s naughty words — they also bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray.

Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.

No Border Walls. No voter ID laws. Did you figure it out yet? But wait… there’s more.

Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege.

And just like that, they went from being against foreign interference in our elections to allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections.

President Trump’s wall costs less than the Obamacare website. Let that sink in, America.

We are one election away from open borders, socialism, gun confiscation, and full-term abortion nationally. We are fighting evil.

They sent more troops and armament to arrest Roger Stone than they sent to defend Benghazi.

60 years ago, Venezuela was 4th on the world economic freedom index. Today, they are 179th and their citizens are dying of starvation. In only 10 years, Venezuela was destroyed by democratic socialism.

Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign. Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Trump was the one investigated!

Nancy Pelosi invited illegal aliens to the State of the Union. President Trump Invited victims of illegal aliens to the State of the Union. Let that sink in.

A socialist is basically a communist who doesn’t have the power to take everything from their citizens at gunpoint … Yet!

How do you walk 3000 miles across Mexico without food or support and show up at our border 100 pounds overweight and with a cellphone?

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants to ban cars, ban planes, give out universal income, and thinks socialism works. She calls Donald Trump crazy.

Bill Clinton paid $850,000 to Paula Jones To get her to go away. I don’t remember the FBI raiding his lawyer’s office.

I wake up every day and I am grateful that Hillary Clinton is not the president of the United States of America.

The same media that told me Hillary Clinton had a 95% chance of winning now tells me Trump’s approval ratings are low.

“The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”— Margaret Thatcher

Maxine Waters opposes voter ID laws; She thinks that they are racist. You need to have a photo ID to attend her town hall meetings.

President Trump said — “They’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just in their way.”

 

Sturmgeschütz IV 

Built upon the highly successful Stug III that was based on the Panzerkampfwagen III, this assault gun was based on the more advanced and better armored Panzerkampfwagen IV, and augmented later in the war to greatly increase the effectiveness of the largely destroyed medium and heavy tank battalions of the German war machine.

Designed by Krupp, Grusonwerk AG, and Magdeburg-Buckau, it was the product of Krupp desiring to create an assault gun just as effective as the Stug III. Reports of the great success of Stug III and other assault guns often matched or bettered the Panzer III and IV counterparts. As a result, the German High Command ordered that a new doctrine should be assessed focusing more on vehicles capable of both anti-tank and anti-infantry roles, built cheaper than tanks with a revolving turret.

The Sturmgeschütz III and IV were the most produced armored vehicles by Germany during WWII.

It was armed with a 7.5 cm StuK 40 L/48 cannon with a combat load of 63 rounds. It had a secondary weapon, a 7.92mm MG-34 located in the hull.

It was protected by moderately thick armor 80mm thick frontally, and 60mm on the sides and rear. Later models were smeared with Zimmerit anti-magnetic mine paste.

A Maybach HL120 TRM V-12-cylinder gasoline engine capable of pushing out 300 horsepower powered the vehicle. They weren’t cross country tanks, but in a defensive role, they didn’t need to move fast. Featuring a ZF SSG 76 Aphon 7 gear suspension, with 6 forward and 1 reverse gear. It rode atop a relatively simple but proven reliable leaf spring suspension. It could reach a top speed of 25mph/40kmh and had an effective range of 130mi/210km.

Assault guns were necessary for Germany, then fighting a largely defensive war. With the need for raw materials slowly dwindling, the need to continually create cheaper and cheaper resulted in designs such as this. Fixed casemate superstructure, but still heavily armored and able to take on almost anything it came across.

    • Even though they are much larger, the military weapons used against drones are “space guns” and the US Navy (as well as other navies) have mounted lasers on ships as a defense against hypersonic missiles.

  1. “fictionally” is a perfect description of how this stuttering cluster-foxtrot of a dumpster fire presidency was spawned.

    Except of course for the fact that it’s non-fiction…..

  2. The VP70 was no space gun with a death ray but it looked like it should have been. It would have gone well with a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.
    I like the Tim Allen quotes. A lot to think about there.

  3. Tim Allen- Always liked him — “Despite being ABC’s second-highest rated sitcom for the 2016–17 season, the network declined to renew Last Man Standing for a seventh season…for being too conservative.”

    Their prerogative…but, nah, there’s no censorship in media. Move along folks and get your SI Swimsuit Edition for the new wacko world order.

    And the Left constantly talks about how we are the insurrectionists. If it walks like a subversive…

    The Bubblehead in Chief is starting to short-circuit more and more, a despicable person fowling the Office of the President in every reprehensible mode possible. History repeats, only now it’s a direct threat to the Constitution and our Republic.

    • You should enjoy tomorrow’s blog…

      I could go on a rant about the propaganda ministry but I’m going to hold back for the moment. I have to ignore them. However if you can figure out a way for me to reach through the TV screen and bring CNN hosts to the WWM, let me know. I can handle it at this end. They are horrible people.

      • Good thought, join the long line on that one. Unfortunately these people are more than just shallow deranged morons, they are transparently hollow, nothing to grab on to even if we could invent the capability of hauling them thru the screen. Maybe when Musk invents the transporter we could lock in on them from our living rooms to offer some reality re-education…behind the woodshed.

    • That sounds suspiciously like a racist comment. All crime is due to white supremacy. Put the black national anthem on a continuous play loop while you sleep. You’ll find the love for the democrat party.

  4. Joe Gaff-o-matic. Fumbles McPuddingbrain. SloJo. He’s been lying and cognitively disabled for over 20 years, more like 40.

    And the ‘Tim Allen’ thingy? Truth. Sadly.

    As to the Double-45? Definitely not a gun for limp-wristed pussies. (Hey, you left-tard jackalopes, ‘Pussy’ is a derivative of ‘pusillanimous.’ which means weak willed weakling with limp wrists et al.)

  5. Not an original thought on my part but all this emphasis on “black” is as racist as it gets. Accomplished something with your life? Achieved? Yes, but, you needed “help” to overcome someone else’s “privilege”. Therefore, your accomplishments and achievements must carry an *.

    • Take up the white man’s burden, etc.

      At another age, it would be racist. Today it’s progressive, exceptionally woke.

  6. I wouldn’t want to be within 100yds of the Russian grenade.

    Oh, Boy! Buck Rogers! Somehow an “Atomic Pistol” with a model number of “U-235”, with the words “Absolutely Harmless” on the box takes me back to my childhood.

    So the Fed is sticking it to the states that supplied the troops to “defend” the Capitol. Gee, weren’t most of the troops from “woke” states? Oh well, sometimes you really do get what you pay for. Like a little lube with that?

    Huh…SloJo (or his handlers) are masters at doublespeak.

    I read what Tim Allen has to say, and I agree 100% with him. “Always Remember The Reason For The Treason”.

    As far as the German assault/anti-tank guns, sometimes simpler is better.
