The Royal Flush

The prince and consort (sometimes referred to as “the flush”) are on the rubber chicken circuit, meeting with the great and near great, for cash, lamenting the racism and long list of grievances that have landed them in this sorry predicament in the Colonies. The colonies wish that they’d go home to Old Blighty and simply live on the state the way that the rest of the royals do. Take up a cause, appear at tea parties, ride a polo chukar now and then, and all that.

Lecturing the American public as “our betters” doesn’t go very far. After all, we’re only colonists.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Duke of Lancaster and of Normandy, Lord of Mann, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, please take them back.

 

The New Military Service Ribbon

Some of you commented on it. Here they are, in all their glory.

Air Force Lt. Col. Robert Carver, spokesman for the Virginia Air National Guard and director of Joint Task Force-DC Joint Information Center, said, “In recognition of their service as part of the security mission at the U.S. Capitol and other facilities in Washington, D.C., before, during and after the 59th Presidential Inauguration, the District of Columbia National Guard plans to present all Soldiers and Airmen who took part in the mission one or both of the following decorations: the District of Columbia National Guard Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon and/or the District of Columbia Emergency Service Ribbon.”

And they have a new patch, of course.

Supporting the coup. It’s a coveted, progressive, award.

Memphis Street Scene – 2021

There are a lot fewer people hanging out, eating BBQ, listening to music. Dystopian…

 

Article II  of the US Constitution requires that the president address Congress on the “state of the union,” including a budget report and legislative proposals. In 2021, it may be delivered in writing, presented to Congress on behalf of a mentally incompetent man who was a fool even when he had his faculties.

 

Fancy and Functional

 

As the interests of our ‘warrior class’ diverge from the interests of the rest of society, even with the best of intentions the tendency is going to be for the warriors to seek to preserve their interests and status with the tools they have, which is to say all of the tools. Tradecraft, operational flexibility and exploiting systems that were not designed to be exploited are weapons too.

The New Communist Party (in Nevada)

NOT LONG AFTER Judith Whitmer won her election on Saturday to become chair of the Nevada Democratic Party, she got an email from the party’s executive director, Alana Mounce. The message from Mounce began with a note of congratulations, before getting to her main point.

She was quitting. So was every other employee. And so were all the consultants. And the staff would be taking severance checks with them, thank you very much.

On March 6, a coalition of progressive candidates backed by the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America took over the leadership of the Nevada Democratic Party, sweeping all five party leadership positions in a contested election that evening.

  1. With the newer water-saving toilets, a royal flush is the one that works 100% the first time.
    Interesting compare and contrast there.

  2. The Royal Flush…she’s an actress, anything she says is suspect. Please spare us the hurt feelings and go back to Mum on bended knee and beg for forgiveness. Do some penance…Harry can mow the lawn for once and the Mrs. Spite could offer to tend the palace fires or vacuum the tapestry’s.

    Nice patches…Got something similar in Cub Scouts. The NG “guarding” OUR Capital from…what, space aliens?…should leave, let the cowards fend for themselves inside the cyclone fence and razor wire.

    Wyoming just pulled it’s Cold Virus Public Control Measures…starting NEXT Tuesday? I guess that’s the magic day Covid leaves the state, whereas it left Texas today and never arrived in South Dakota.

    Are the new Nevada Dem Party leadership actors like AOC? I suppose it’s sort of a guild of subversives. Do they get a patch?

    • Maybe we can just go back to getting the flu again?

      The Nevada Communists likely will get arm bands with hammers and sickles on them. The commies have always been big on arm bands. And little red books where they can quote Bernie, Camela and the rest of the trailblazers.

      • But, but, LL, don’t you listen to the MSM, there are no more Cold or Flu cases, they’ve been miraculously eradicated by the WuFlu. And no more “regular” deaths either, all China Virus. The drumbeat of 500,000+ dead from Sars-2 confirms this.

        Numbers don’t lie (unless you are of the mind that 2+2=5…and you are not an accountant). 2019 & 2020 overall deaths are statistically the same. No massive die-off (except in New York where Mr. Emmy The Thug Award winner oversees). But we do Have the Not Royals to help us cope.

        All a lie…like Harry and Meghan (“Meg” or “The Meg”), grifting off public mask-wearer believers (who have not read the mask box warning label), who have been re-breathing their own exhalate and have fogged brains.

        “We will never be a Socialist country!” (POTUS @ the SOTU). The gauntlet was thrown, and the subversives said “Okay, we’ll start from the bottom up.”, and the sheep voted them in like clockwork.

        • I think you nailed it, Camperfixer.

          Yes, things in the US would have been much worse if Harry and the Meg hadn’t shown up in Brentwood, CA to save us all. It’s not clear to me how much of their bill is being picked up by the US taxpayers as they grift their way through life. Bodyguards, household staff, butlers, drivers, footmen, nannies, and so forth require a lot of supervision and the Meg finds that exhausting. Harry wanders around in a daze, his balls in his wife’s purse, and he parrots every leftist freak in Hollywood – which is reaffirming to the freaks.

          • I’m part Scots-Irish so I’ve got nothing against redheads (better on the gals in my opinion)…but ‘ginger’ fits this guy to a tee. Apples-Tree.

            And The Meg…wasn’t that a Gerard Butler disaster movie?

            Wait! Butler also did Olympus Has Fallen…he’s clearly a prophet. Maybe check his other disaster movies to see what’s coming down the pike.

  3. The National Guard is now awarding ribbons for “protecting the capital” against Americans engaged in lawful protests. I can’t wait to see the ones awarded for non-participation in “peaceful protests”.

    • Maybe an actual trophy?

      Or a V device for the valor that the National Guard has showed. A Congressional Medal of Honor for each guardsman who protects Congress?

  4. msn just headlined “virus relief package in sight, Biden on the cusp of greatness.” that must be some gooood koolaid. what greatness? passing a boondoggle bill that was already agreed to before the election? talk about handing out trophies… all my buds still in the service are bugging out. sadly one bud’s son who was ets’ing came home, looked around, went back to Italy and re-upped. “i thought you were getting out?” “i did, i start sf training next month.” he didn’t like the prospects around here, but regular army was worse. frying pan, meet fire. good luck to you, trev…. and to john jr., he went super secret squirrel. jj was a little weird anyway.

    • There are a lot of failed donkey programs that need trillions to be made whole. Biden’s biggest achievement may be eliminating gender, and declaring victory in the war against DNA. He will leave Camela the long march against the weather.

      I feel sorry for young men and women in this American era. What do you do? What career can you choose that is free of donkey influence? Some of that is clearly diminished when you live in a free state as opposed to a slave state where there are more donkeys. But it’s pervasive and sort of like a cancer…or a plague.

  5. Looks like the US slowly slides towards socialism. Russia and China need only to wait a little longer and they will become three in the club. The Democrats has already started to use a similar language they do in Russia and China when handling the opposition.

    The process will speed up when KH and NP and the squad starts to take action after JB is sent to rest. The national guard will have more medals, ribbons and patches in the time to come.

    It will be interesting to follow how it all turns out. Maybe many will speed up the evacuation from the D places and move to safe places where R governs. I predict there will be many new walls in the US in the years to come.

    Glad I visited the US years ago. Hope you all will survive. Take care.

      • I guess that will be the safest way to arrive. Then I won’t need to bring my own equipment too. In the past I had a little book called Guerilla. It is long gone now, the book. But the content seem still to be relevant. The experice from Afghanistan tells that a guerilla can create trouble. Especially the use of IEDs made trouble and causialities.

        I guess no one knows what KH, NP and the squad will do to punish all the ones they define as their enemies but I trust they will not follow the defund police strategy. More the NKVD and Stalins way of doing things.

        I am optimistic and hopefully things will work out and the socialism and woke movement will grow up and vanish.

    • You need a derringer, Jules. Even in Old Blighty, you’d feel more comfortable with 2 rounds of .45 ACP ready to go in your pocket.

      I like Memphis, but wonder, when the dust settles, how many iconic restaurants and clubs will never re-open.

      • its not so much the covid bs as it is the pestilence that preys on the tourists on beal street these days. it used to be such fun, even into the wee hours it was safe there. local tells me not to go even in daylight now. what a shame.

  6. Ribbons issued by an illegitimate government occupying the U.S. capital. Right. I wonder if they come with a Jill Biden cookie?

    I read now that there is talk among the donkeys of establishing a green zone around the capital.

    • I think that there are designated “Green Zones” and “Red Zones” now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the government used eminent domain to expand those to install more defenses, barracks for twenty thousand troops, etc.

  7. Wonderful news out of Nevada.

    As to the “Royals”, they do help the sale of tabloids at check out stands. Helps the economy and all that.

    Nice ribbons and patches, earned sleeping in parking garages and eating rotten food.

  8. I want one of those pretty ribbons! They would make a neato halloween costume iffn’ I get enough of them before ghost and goblin day and I do speak of the current political elite…

  9. Re those two and O… Who cares? They are lying grifters. Moving on… Seahorse, don’t remember the type, but a Mustang they wanted to sell the Navy, who didn’t want it because it wasn’t a radial.

    Memphis sure has a LOT more neon than it did when I was there in the 70s. Beale St is still the place to go, it looks like.

    • Was meeting with a bunch of fellow pilots last night. We got on the subject of why the Navy liked round engines. Seems you could blow a jug (cylinder) on a radial and make it back home, albeit with difficulties. A straight, water-cooled engine like they have in a Mustang just doesn’t do so good; lose a cylinder and you lose the whole shebang. Also if you lose the coolant, radiator or cooling lines get punctured, you lose the engine. Makes good sense.

      Also that is why most Naval aircraft have at least two engines; lose one and you can still recover especially if you are far from any sort of land.

  10. Please keep them – the UK does not want them back. Hewitt & Sparkle are no longer considered part of the Royal Family now – we do not forgive traitorous scum over here.

    • Does the UK still own St. Helena Isl?

      Just trying to get them out of our hair, back to British soil, but out of sight.

      • St Helena is indeed a part of British Overseas Territory (also encompassing Ascension and Tristan da Cunha islands, in the South Atlantic Ocean), featuring Diana’s Peak(!) and Cuckold’s Point(!!) and many other natural elements which they can enjoy.

        St Helena has an airport now, as does Acsension, but Tristan is still only accessible by sea.

  11. The ex-royals. They need to be ex-parrots….

    Are you *required* to wear all your awards at certain times? What would happen if someone “accidentally” forgot that particular ribbon when they were in dress?

    That patch raises my blood pressure, and not in a happy way. Agitprop to me.

    The aircraft looked like a naval version of the Mustang, but I’d never seen one.

    The street scenes of Vegas at night during the fauxdemic looked equally eerie, like they were setting up for a movie shot.

    “Cute” Derringer. What caliber? I’ve only shot one chambered in 22LR, and it was a hoot.

    Commies in Nevada? Who’da thunk it. Russian Mafia, maybe?

    Follow the money…..

  12. I have 21 years of total Military service. Thirteen of them was with Joint Services which gave you a medal for every training mission and two for a real world mission. I retired as E-7 Master Sargent in the AF and I have 11 rows of scrambled eggs. Two thirds of them are BS ribbons and medals that were participation awards. The DC service medals would be right in line with the those bullshit medals. I was not a hero but just a grunt that did his job. My dress uniform with all of my medals is embarrassing as I was at the rear with the commo gear making sure the phone calls and emails went out. There were real hero’s out there that dissevers more credit. I did more as a contractor after I retired than I did when I was in the service. I had the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs award me with his coin as a contractor. That meant more to me than my 2 AF Commendation medals or 5 Meritorious Service medals.

    • The basis of awards, ribbons and “I was there” have been sorely eroded over time. Thanks for sharing your experience, above.

  13. The SPC was mocking those ribbons last night. What a pathetic joke. That aside, I loaned a derringer to a butler once, in London. He was arrested and want to gaol for stealing his master’s cars. We called him “Gentleman John.” There’s a pop song about him, somewhere on the internet.
