Lee Smith: Hillary Clinton Paid to Have Her Personal Conspiracy Theory Made Into Official US National Security Policy, and The Entire Nation Has Been Forced to Live Inside the Sick Imaginings of a Paranoiac for Three Years

Smith talks about his new book with Maria Bartiromo.

I downloaded his book, The Plot Against the President, yesterday but haven't started reading it yet.

It's the #1 Amazon Best Seller in books.

A correspondent writes,

He literally goes through the early drafts of "the dossier" and links specific media stories (leaks) to the "dossier" sentences...

As a friend in the military/security world told me from the beginning: "It's an op. It's obviously an op. I know it's an op because I used to be one of the guys running this kind of an op."

Meanwhile, Trump posted an obvious (and funny) photoshop of the hero Delta Force Dog.

The media and NeverTrump reacted with maturity, sobriety, and an unequaled sense of proportion and coolness of temper, as we have come to expect.




Seriously? You're fact-checking an obvious photoshop gag?

How do I explain this...? 1, the dog's identity is classified, so he can't appear in photos, 2, there's an obvious white line around the inserted image of the dog, and 3, see, WE DON'T GIVE THE PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM TO F***ING DOGS.


The Margaret Dumont Appreciation Society, Cosplay Conservative Wing, has decided that this silly photoshop is actually a terrible insult to the man who was actually given the award in the real picture.

This is Jeryl Bier, an extremely pathetic Beta Orbiter always trying to get his Senpai -- The Bulwark -- to notice him.



Yeah I'm sure he feels totally dishonored.

So many updates from this "reporter"!




This guy is paid by you. He "works" for VOA.

They're better and smarter and more important than you. You can tell, because all of the good, smart, and important people waste their entire fucking lives with #MuhTwitterz.

A correspondent writes:

RE the dog photoshop --Seriously, this goes back to what I was saying the other day about NeverTrumpers being humorless scolds. On top of having no sense of humor, they're just not all that bright. You see this over and over and over again.

Yes, they're SJWs. SJWs are known for being humorless scolds who are stupid and obsessive.

They're literally a bunch of nasty, venomous old ladies constantly shrieking about #MuhPropriety and #MuhScandalizedSensibilities and #MuhStarsandGarters.

Their T-levels are in the single digits -- beneath that of even the BuzzFeed "boys."

Exactly, Buzz:

Their entire political effort is predicated on the idea that they are intellectually and morally superior, thus they have a right to rule.

The way we beat them is by continuing to reveal them for the unqualified, feckless buffoons they really are, and holding them up for mockery and derision at every opportunity.

73 woof ... yeah, an op. Some of what is done now is "influence operations" ... which is what the wall to wall coverage of "The Whistle Blower" is about, with constant leaks, always another episode in the ongoing saga ... commercials tease the New Developments, walls closing in". It is a soap opera scripted for the masses ... but with real leaks that reveal elements of truth (this is sedition, maybe treason ... but yes, it is an "op")


A few people that try to testify to Mueller or others were rejected, cuz it is Mueller and DeepState running the damn ops, if the true whistle blowers get to vocal, they have to incarcerate or kill them. imo, Rosenstein also was 'influenced' ... the book notes how Nunes came under full (influence operation imo) pressure when he did his announcement, and they (DS) hence put him under investigation, and he was sidelined for a little while.

New Yorkers swim in an absolute sea of hyperbole. I used to live in a place with more New York transplants than locals. Everyone understands them, they are not a literal people.

DC, being the seat of governance, thus housing the huge ass of bureaucracy, is full of pedantic fuckwits who obsess about linguistic and paperwork precision in all things

You'd think DC would be able to talk to New Yorkers, what with how close they are, geographically.

New Yorkers actually have more in common with Southerners (aside from their bizarre politics).

Well, they have to keep that number growing!

The MSM is not being dumb when it does these fact checks, they are weaponizing fact-checking to declare someone/some entity (e.g. Babylon Bee) "fake news" --- and fake news is used by facebook and other sites as cause to hide and/or deplatform.

They will try to say that Trump "lies" on twitter, so he needs his account de-boosted, or his funny tweets hidden, etc.

The PDSA Dickin Medal is the highest award any animal can receive whilst serving in military conflict. It is recognised worldwide as the animals Victoria Cross. Instituted in 1943 by PDSAs founder Maria Dickin CBE, it acknowledges outstanding acts of bravery or devotion to duty displayed by animals serving with the Armed Forces or Civil Defence units in any theatre of war throughout the world.

148 muldoon---

yeah, here's the etymology of the word fusil:

late 16th century (denoting a flint in a tinderbox): from French, based on Latin focus "hearth, fire"

I had no idea that's what "focus" meant.

But the word does now mean "rifle" in french. I just can't imagine that "fusilli" does not derive from the rifle, given that the characteristic shape of both is the spiral.

A rifle without a spiral is just a smoothbore and not a rifle.

A fusilli without a spiral is just a noodle.

Fuselage- borrowed from French, from fuselé "spindle-shaped"

Posted by: Muldoon at October 30, 2019 03:30 PM (mvenn)

256 #148 The original flintlock muskets replacing matchlock muskets were called "fusils". When the first infantry regiments were equipped with them, they were called "fusiliers" and they kept that honorific title even once all of the very-late 17th Century and early 18th Century infantry regiments had all been equipped with flintlocks.

The new flintlocks were especially useful for troops assigned to guard artillery because there was minimal danger of a flintlock's spark setting fire to open barrels of gunpowder used by artillery (before extending the prepacked 'cartridge' idea to cannon-shot as had been done with muskets) contrasted with matchlocks' smoldering matches.

It's very interesting though that even though these weapons were all smoothbores (for the most part) that "fusilli" has to do rifling too.

286 I was reading something the other day that was comparing statistics of registered voters to people on social media. It went on to say there were about 153 million registered voters in the US and about 83 million "unique US visitors. Of those 83 million only a fraction are widely read or viewed.

The point was that people on social media have a delusional perspective on how influential they are at shaping public opinion. It also noted the users have an over inflated sense of self worth and ego.

Short version, nobody really gives a shit what these people write to their flabby male concubines they pretend are "friends" on Twitter.

I recall reading that several rifles have been found/dug up on civil war battlefields that had 6 or 7 balls in the barrel. The belief is that the battle was so loud that the infantryman never realized his gun wasn't firing, and he kept reloading in battle even though he was just pounding in one ball of top of another.

362 The 95th Rifles' Rifleman Harris's (IIRC) memoir had him saying that they always kept some undersized bullets for when rate of fire was more important than accuracy.

And Frederick the Great's fusilier regiments, contrasted with the musketeer regiments and the standing grenadier battalions, were formed later from less-impressive recruits and were named "fusiliers" and given metal "mitre caps" a bit like the grenadiers' mitre caps as a morale-booster and in an attempt to deceive opponents that they were facing good-quality infantry.

found/dug up on civil war battlefields that had 6 or 7 balls in the

even though he was just pounding in one ball of top of another.

It's entirely possible that those soldiers weren't capping. The ordnance surveyors who recovered rifles at Gettysburg found one with 20 charges rammed down the barrel.

As for not noticing that the gun has discharged, that has happened to me (and others) at reenactment battles. A 60gr blank charge doesn't have noticeable recoil, and if the cap misfires (which is what happened to me), you might not notice the flash from the barrel with all the noise and confusion. And that's even without all the death and blood.

394 #332 Tom, I've read that the overloaded RMLs found on ACW battlefields were from pacifists and Quaker types (not literal Quakers) who weren't actually shooting, just reloading with the other ranks. (Maybe from Paddy Griffith??)

That with the old smoothbores, even 'aimed' fire was complete chance whether it would hit someone or not so you weren't guilty of murder shooting them; but with aimed fire from a rifle being so much more accurate, that they thought it was the same as a deliberate killing.

Don't know if it is true or not but that is one thought about it.

Right now on MSN online news, is a headline from some kind of analyst , describing Trump's mental instability is revealed by the fact he hasn't owned a pet.

How they know Trump has never owned a pet is beyond me. And I will say, I admire Trump for not forcing some little Yorkie or some big Labrador to live in a high rise in NYC , where the help would either have to walk him or he would have to crap on pads in the laundry room, getting scolded if he missed. All while Trump and family were traveling.

Pet's aren't decorative items.

Well loud doesn't cut it, those things kick like a mule. You KNOW when
they fire. Unless you're so terrified and out of your mind you don't
know anything except drill.

More of a leetle shove than a kick. Unless you're using something from a slightly later period - like a rip off your shoulder 45-70.

AOC will be governor of New York by 2024, though.

Just load another en bloc clip and blast away. Thumb first, strong downward push. Bolt isn't released til you remove pressure, plenty of time to swivel thumb out of the way.


Greatest battle implement ever devised.

440 The biggest reason we stopped issuing full auto M16s was because upon contact everyone in the squad would unload and then everyone was quiet while changing magazines.

Plus, even more wasteful of ammo.

I liked one of the Mythbusters where they showed how long it took to empty a magazine on full auto with like 10 different guns. It was almost exactly the same time period for each one, around 4 seconds. Always annoys me in movies where some guy is firing for ten minutes with an Ingraham or something. Those thing run dry awful fast.

Yes, it is. The orders in the "Load in nine time" sequence include "Draw Rammer" and "Return Rammer".

Imagine being the poor guy on the other side who got hit by a rammer flying through the air, rather than a bullet.

I recall reading about one pinned to a tree below Culp's Hill at Gettysburg. Rammers make a funny sound when you fire em down range though.

President's getting dogs is a type of virtue signalling. I'm sure Poppa Bush really had a dog, but Obama and Clinton--no.
It's a prop, like when Clinton or Obama would make a show of going to a bookstore and being shown carrying "certain" books.
Or like Clinton with that Big Black Bible during Lewinsky....

I see that usually used for ones used for muzzle-loading cannons while the full word "ramrod" is usually used for musket/rifle ones in my circle at least.

450 In 2016, Katy Perry dressed up as Hillary Clinton for a Halloween party
and posted a paparazzi photo of her in costume on her Instagram page.
Now, exactly three years later, the photo agency who owns the rights to
the picture is suing her for $150,000, plus . The group, Backgrid, filed
its lawsuit on Tuesday, October 29. It claims Perry violate federal law
by posting the photo.

457 What Trump has done this week, getting people to be mad he killed a terrorist and screaming about his jokes about a dog...this shit will be studied in schools one day. It's amazing. He's a master at this shit. It's incredible how they fall for his traps over and over and over again, yet I have to hear about how much smarter and better they are than me just because I like this guy.

460 The story of Conan the she barbarian malinois that slayed the jihadists is somewhat bittersweet for me. Sad for the malinois and other USA trained bomb sniffing dogs given to the Jordanians. These dogs have been dying due to neglect and abuse.

**I hope that some of you google this tragic story and email the department in charge of this travesty. All the info needed is in the news article. At least the dogs that have died are at peace now. It's the ones starving neglected abused and sick in Jordan and Afghanistan that are suffering still. **
