Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps. 246 years and still going strong. I’ve attended many birthday parties for the Corps. Some while in uniform, some as a (wretched) civilian.  The Marine Corps is a credit to the United States Naval Service.

Happy Birthday Marines



The Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution

It’s worth reading

Passed by Congress December 9, 1803. Ratified June 15, 1804. The 12th Amendment changed a portion of Article II, Section 1. A portion of the 12th Amendment was changed by the 20th Amendment

The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate; — The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted; — The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.— The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.


It appears that the 2020 Election will be going to the Supreme Court. Where they will rule that the election is invalid due to fraud or mistakes on a national scale. It will go one of two ways, either they will rule that all of the unconstitutional mail-in ballots will be removed and the states ordered to recount without them, or they will simply rule the election is invalid due to mass voter fraud. The mass voter fraud based on the company, owned by democrats, that was used to count votes, has been established by a number of affidavits, sworn under oath.

At that point it will be sent to the Congress/Senate for a vote.

The 12th Amendment lays out how the House of Representatives votes on who the President will be. It has nothing to do with which political party holds a majority in the House. Every State gets one vote and 30 State Legislatures are held by Republicans.and 19 by Democrats. They have to vote down party lines, based on the 12th Amendment to the Constitution and the Senate votes for the Vice President where a similar even will take place.

This is The law.

The only way President Trump won’t be President is if he concedes the election and that will never happen. It’s why the President won’t allow the Biden “transition team” into the White House because that could be construed as a concession.


The Insurrection Act of 1807

An Act authorizing the employment of the land and naval forces of the United States, in cases of insurrections. …more here.

Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller

The President is setting the stage for a situation for a response when unhappy donkeys will riot after he takes the Executive Branch for another four years. As Old NFO pointed out yesterday, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (who many consider to be a RINO) was removed from office for refusing to follow orders in this regard.

The President appointed Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected director of the National Counterterrorism Center, to be the acting Secretary of Defense. Presumably Miller would follow the orders of the Commander in Chief in all things as his oath requires.

Will Director Wray of the FBI also be replaced? He serves at the pleasure of the President as did Secretary Esper.


  1. h/t to the Marines, and to all who visit here that served and sacrificed, a hearty “Thank You!” for your service.

    The rotten fraud onion is getting peeled back layer-by-layer, and only one day into lawsuits. Affidavits coming out of the woodwork (at least some people told to cheat have some guilt-ridden integrity). The Dem’s know their victory is thin so are grasping at straws to hold the failing line. In the meantime, wonky Biden thinks he’s IN, calling world leaders in full (not Flynn) violation of the Logan Act.

    Tucker – as usual – brilliantly threw down the gauntlet last night, including a not-so-veiled rip on Cavuto’s prissy cowardly move against Kayleigh McEnany (real men do not do that to a woman regardless of stance). Proves that FOX will disappear to the trash heap and Carlson heads to Newsmax or a new network, maybe one started by POTUS as an in-your-face move.

    Covid is apparently now over as many predicted after a Biden “win”…safe to say the “non-super-spreader” street parties and MSM tearful emoting will turn on its head once it’s realized they actually lost? “Unite” my a$$.

    • The plague has ended!

      Who could have predicted that?

      And Biden, what a joke. What a pathetic husk of a man.

      • C’mon man!, he’s president-elect because some 70 million-thousand voted for the Hologram, and the unfair and unbalanced news media said he won.

        They are all pathetic and hollow. Watch how badly they sore lose.

      • On and on it goes, when it stops nobody knows. Gettin’ old.

        What’s with this guy telling free citizens they have to do anything he dictates? (it’s NOT law, but the compliant believe it is, just ask)

        Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to take my state supplied pill this morning.

        • We may be living in the Matrix, Camperfixer. Make sure to take the correct pill.

          WSF, and what if you and Banner refuse to wear your masks as you walk in the chill (virus killing) breeze?

          • Had a dentist appointment. Got a call. Seems the partner dentist tested positive for COVID so my guy per county mandate is required to cancel all appointments and get tested. COVID, like flu and other cold viruses, is floating around…it’s November and THIS IS NORMAL.

            Asked the gal “What if I don’t care?”…long pause…”Well, it still comes back to Dr. ‘X’…meaning the county would shut him down. This is how Marxism creeps into the narrative. All about fearing the officials.

  2. Minor tradition. Each November 10th I call my friend Mike. The conversation generally goes like this.
    “Happy birthday, Jarhead”
    “Thanks, Ditch Boy. Now go spit shine your shovel”.

  3. Semper Fi you Jarheads! Your Uber is waiting. We’ll drop you off and drink coffee while you take care of business! 😀 Frankly, I’m surprised Esper lasted this long.

    • My heart always swelled with pride that I could make beaches safe for Marines to land on. (Go Navy)

      Esper was a bureaucrat during time of “war”. Not the right guy. Let’s see what Miller can do.

  4. Good on the USMC. Though I still feel that getting rid of Armor is a big big big mistake. The Marines of WWII thought they didn’t need armor either, as Naval Gunfire Support was supposed to be good enough, even on a small 1×3 mile island. The experts were vastly wrong. And an Amphib isn’t ‘Armor.’ Dumb-ass Commandant.

    As to the Steal… Doesn’t matter to Florida, as the voters of Florida have voted to slit their throats. We’s going to a $15/hr minwage! YAY! WE’RE FORKED! YAY! PRICES GONNA RISE! YAY! Seniors and disabled now only able to afford bargain dogchow! YAY! Assholes… Fucking Commies! Fuckers need to die!

    I hope that we get a 2nd Term for President Trump. But the commies have a lot of control, and they’re calling in their markers right and left.

    Haven’t slept well since Nov. 3rd. As I see every gain made since Jan 20, 2017 goes away practically overnight.

    I hope and pray that the Donald will stay the President. And that he gets some sort of voting reform much like we’ve talked about here on previous days takes over.

    • We live in uncertain times, Beans, but it’s a great time to be a hamburger turner temp in Florida as wage inequality accordions into one number and businesses close, and unemployment is extended to infinity as it becomes the new welfare.

        • McD is working hard on automating the whole thing with possibly one attendant in case of a malfunction. They might pull it off.

      • Problem is, well, Florida has little big industry, it’s mostly Ag and Service and those tow segments die under a high min wage.

        My favorite grocery chain, Publix, is known for great starter jobs at about a buck over min wage, and they hire a lot of ‘developmentally challenged’ individuals. Jacking up min wage means that the DC people will no longer be affordable by the company.

        All those small restaurants and businesses, already suffering under the Covidiocracy, will die under even a $1.25 increase in min wage.

        Doomed. Doomed I say. And not in a sarcastically funny way, either.

        • You’ll simply need to lobby for a larger COLA to your pension. I’m sure that grateful taxpayers will pass that.

  5. Happy Birthday, Marines.

    I have a question: I am aware from past elections that voter fraud is a big deal in America. Given that this is an issue, why has it not ever been sorted out /policed differently / given to an independent body? Particularly that this was guaranteed to happen given the anti-Trump drama.

    • The democrats have held power in places like Chicago through machine politics and the joke, as long as I’ve been alive has been that the dead vote democrat. It’s not just a cliche. There are places in the USA that are run by that party. Take California. I received five ballots by mail in California to various locations where I have lived – that I know of – and two where I have not lived (my girl’s homes). My girls shredded the ballots that came to their homes. I don’t know for sure what happened to the others. A friend of mine had a California ballot ADDRESSED to them in Arizona – not mail forwarded. Workers at nursing homes and care facilities where ballots come, vote democrat for those people and bundle the ballots off to be counted.

      There is corruption on a massive scale, but it’s the only way that democrats can be assured of a victory and they appoint judges to the bench. After a point you have a one-party system. Tax money is also used to buy votes through programs that are lavishly funded by democrat state legislatures. It’s how the poor inner city people vote to keep democrats in power. The fear of losing your program if the Republican Party wins keeps them on the plantation.

      I’m not proud of it, and at this point, it will be interesting to see where the backlash takes it. President Trump is very likely to stay president, legally, as I’ve pointed out on the blog over the last few days because of the fraud. The Supreme Court can send the election to Congress, each state gets one vote and 30 of 50 state legislatures are Republican. Of course that will lead to widespread looting and destruction by lawless democrats. It’s completely dystopian.

      Of course, where I live, there are very few people and they are armed, and leave peacefully.

    • The only people who could crack down on voter fraud are the Parties.

      The Parties don’t want an honest vote, they just want to win no matter how.

      Only the losing party wants reform, and they are in the minority.

      There is no desire nor mechanism to reduce fraud, among those with the power to do so.

      Just because the Democrats are better at corruption than the Republicans, don;t think the Republicans aren’t corrupt too.
