Could a Single Marine Unit Destroy the Roman Empire?

No. Battles may be won by weapons and training, but wars are won by logistics.

The only possible way they could win would be to rapidly take out the leaders with a clandestine attack, then take their place. They'd better learn to speak latin (or at least greek) first.

America gets Trump

The media doesn't.

1. “Russia Is Fake News”

Even the media should get this one. The media is so focused on their narrative, that "Trump is somehow colluding with Putin," that they can't understand when he says there is no there, there... thus fake news.

2. “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine”

What the media describes as botched is simply the media blowing things out of proportion. The stories are damaging only as far as the hostile media expresses outrage. That outrage didn't exist for Obama when he did far worse. Remember how the media continually reported that the Trump campaign was in turmoil? It wasn't. They won.

3. “The leaks are absolutely real; the news is fake”

Completely understandable when you don't live in a fake news bubble. The leaks are real. Stop. Any problem understanding that? The news is fake. What news? The narrative that every time Trump talks to a world leader it's the beginning of WW3. That Trump is not getting along with others is the fake news.

4. “I’m not ranting and raving” 

He wasn't. But the media continues to misconstrue what he says (as described here in.)

5. “Nuclear holocaust would be like no other”

He's trying to make a larger point that the media refuses to acknowledge. Good relations between the two most powerful nations, capable of wiping out life on earth, might have some benefit!?

6. “I am the least anti-Semitic person that you have seen in your entire life”

When you repeatedly, on a daily basis, call Trump an anti-semite Hitler he might feel like responding? The press, rather than dealing in facts, has taken every opportunity to portray Trump (and his family) in the most vile way possible. Frankly, he's been very cool in his responses. I'd be much more directly angry. Trump is showing considerable self control.

7. "The greatest thing I could do is shoot that ship"

It was a hypothetical. He did not indicate he would do it. But for the record, there are times when that is exactly the right response... like when Iranian ships harass our warships... there need to be consequences that deter that sort of dangerous behavior. If it comes to pass, Americans would support it.

8. “Are they friends of yours?”

It's a natural question. He pointed out he'd like to meet with them and others but some will not because it would cause the media to turn on them.

The Americans that voted for Trump get it. The media is confused because they can't see past their own fiction. They need to escape their bubble before they are completely irrelevant.

Shadow government

Remember 3 days of the condor? Have the democrats installed such a shadow govt. inside the Trump admin?

Williamson told TheDCNF in an interview, “I truly believe it’s orchestrated and it’s part of an overall strategy. The objective is to piece-by-piece, dismantle the Trump administration, to discredit Trump.  This is part of an overarching plan.”
This is treason within our govt. orchestrated by Obama who, unlike every other president, did not go away.

This seems really bad.

Another example of the art

Funniest conversation ever!!!

How to fight democrats

Dems have no problem over ruling the people with judges. So...

Misunderstanding "Peace and Security"

Many people have read the bible prophesy at 1 Thes 5:2,3 thinking it means the world will declare 'peace and security' to have come just before Armageddon. But what if the understanding is a bit different? The thought occurred to me after reading about the latest North Korean missile test.

Instead of being a cry that it had been achieved, could it instead be a cry that it was being threatened?

Which reminds me of the Woody Allen prophesy that, "two countries will go to war and one will win."

In other words... Thes may not be useful predictively, but simply confirmational after the fact.

This is treason

The left would paint Steve Miller as an extremist. Here he is at 17 being extremely truthful.

It has been pointed out (was it by Jerry Pournelle?) that if our education system had been imposed on us it would be an act of war. Yes, it is.

More fake news

Now they can no longer claim that zero terrorists came from the seven muslim ban extreme vetting countries as many with the lefts talking points have been claiming on fake news. Since 9/11...

— Somalia: 20
— Yemen: 19
— Iraq: 19
— Syria: 7
— Iran: 4
— Libya: 2
— Sudan: 1

72 in total while 25 of those became American citizens. Those lefty judges than overruled the clear constitutionally legal authority of the president should be impeached.

Left is mad because Trump is doing what he promised his voters he would do.

Think about this... One of the left's talking points is that deportation will break up families. For any other crime that also breaks up families it would obviously be a losing argument. This is why we need to revise the law to deal with the anchor baby problem which was never intended to be the result of the law. I can hear the uproar now when they do, but now is the only chance they will have to fix this because the majority (contrary to fake news) support the president on immigration law.

Expect 'the news' to crank out lot's of these stories.

Gamergate elected Trump?

I'm sure it helped. The thing is, the Donald has an ability to expose corruption that we've never seen before. Whatever corruption he himself represents is lost in the noise. We don't expect Trump to be perfect (far from it.) What we expect is for him to fight and we haven't been disappointed so far.

A bit of good news

I had an appointment today in Show Low with my kidney doctor. My kidney function improved 3% from my last visit. But I also have a new list of diet restrictions. Potato salad is now out along with other stuff. I was accidentally drinking the right soda since I don't drink Cola (too much phosphorous.)  My anemia is still low at 12 but much improved from 6.

So... I can live with that.
