Nancy Pelosi Puts Hyperpartisan Lunatic, Conspiracy Theorist, and Hardcore Racist In Charge of Alleged "Security Review" of Capitol Incident

He claims the riot was an inside job, among other things.

Here, he claims that Trump wasn't doing a good enough job providing relief for Hurricane Maria because, of course, "racism."


"The president has shown again, you don't give a damn about poor people, you don't give a damn about people of color and the SOB that rides around in Air Force One is denying services needed by the people of Puerto Rico," the retired general said on CNN.

Since Monday, several more partisan and profane comments have come to light featuring Honore blasting Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mis.) and other Republicans for objecting to the 2020 election results, blaming conservative Capitol Police for "allowing Trumpsters" to get into the Capitol, and savaging President Trump.

"That little peace of shit with his @Yale law degree should be run out of DC and Disbarred ASAP," Lt. General Russel Honore wrote of Hawley in a now deleted Twitter post on January 11.

He's also a spastic authoritarian:

Incredibly, he also urged the feds to bar freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Co.) from flying on commercial aircraft, tweeting "put her stupid A** on a No Fly List @SpeakerPelosi."

Once again, I'm glad we got rid of all authoritarianism by ushering the Democrats into power.

Much more at the link. It's a constant churn of toxic, racist conspiracy-theory venom with this general, who certainly seems super-competent and like he really earned his promotions.


Decades of appointing leftwing radicals to our highest positions of authority in the armed forces have produced great fruits for the left.

But hey everybody, let's just go along with Conservative, Inc. in pretending this never happened, and that it's still 2003, and that it will be 2003 forever.

It's no fun changing our mindsets to reflect changed facts and changed circumstances! It's no fun confronting difficult, painful truths!

So let's just go back to 2003 and snap our neatest salutes and cheer the boys fighting The New Terrorism.

Clap harder, Conservative, Inc. Your leftwing friends monitoring you to ensure your applause for the tyrannical war on Middle America tell me that "Enthusiasm counts, make your palms sting."


Frozen-in-Amber Conservatism

Let us never wake from our drowsy dreams of 2003, a wondrous time when Corporate America is our friend, Bush is wise and popular, and the Taliban is just another thousand American casualties from becoming Republican Rotary Club members.

We never have to change! If we just collectively deny reality hard enough, reality will bend itself to our weak, feckless will.

59 Don't make the mistake of conflating the English language with what they are saying.

"White supremacy" in their eyes is not the belief in the racial superiority of whites, it is the absence of genuflection to other races.

"Terrorist" is not "people who engage in politically motivated violence to extort preferred policy outcomes", it is "the absence of universal vociferous and laudatory praise for my preferred policy outcomes."

They believe quite literally that 45% of America needs destroyed.

It is not like people were not warned this is where we were headed even back in 2004.

As I posted on the last thread, most (not all, but most) of the regular troops would refuse an order to fire on Americans, particularly if it came from obvious politicians in their chain of command. Indeed, you would have people in the chain of command being relieved because of their refusal. Guarantee it. That goes double or triple for the Guard, all of whom have to go home after their time in federal service is done, and who have families back in their communities. There would be some who follow orders, but a mutiny is not inconceivable.

I really have no idea what is going on with this guy. Of all the actual 'competent' names that could have been pulled out of the hat, this guy was chosen.
My guess is that he was always a little bug-fuck nuts, and Nancy had a report about that.
Which is why she chose him for this little task; he is "politically reliable". A slightly update version of Colin Powell. The conclusion has already been reached. Now they just need to fill in the blanks.

79 I've known some dumb ass racists but none were Klan members nor were they supremacists. They just were ignorant.

What we have to get past is this idea that racism is the ultimate evil or the unforgiveable sin. I can shrug at racism most of the time because its just people being rude. When I hear a hispanic guy rapping about how all blacks are stupid and should just die, that's his ignorance and rudeness. When I hear a guy wonder if "that n--" is working on the dock at the store, I just feel sorry for someone being that much of a loser.

But I mean, people are rude all day long. Its raging on the internet every moment of the day. People who game on PCs are stupid and old. People who like Pepsi are queer. People who like Prometheus have no taste in movies. Its just someone's strong opinion about a topic, delivered rudely. Often with ignorance behind it.

Simply turning that on someone because of their ethnic background does not make it the worst evil ever. Its what you DO with that rudeness and bigotry that matters, not the bare existence of it.

I regret deeply not paying closer attention to those here who were ringing the bell as hard as they could about the Obama era purge and promotion in the upper tiers of the military.

He didn't do much during Katrina. There was such a vacuum of leadership that anyone semi-competent coming in seemed like a rock star.

This is a valid point--due to the way things have been going EVERYONE knows the score and can plan accordingly. The gulag thing only really works if everyone channels the this-is-fine dog until 'they' suddenly start raiding houses in the middle of the night to consolidate power.

That's not true, but I know what you mean: many people who otherwise embrace conservative ideals are often just under that layer a big government type who just wants the power to enforce their own rules.

It comes up here every so often. Social conservatives are often the worst; wanting small government except the power to enforce their vision of a Godly nation and the government's power to make it happen.

More likely there was a PsyOp led by the Stand Down cops, and the DC mayor, and likely involving approval by Pelosi and China Mitch.

222 For years in Washington there was an unwritten code both sides abided by. If you became too radical and crossed certain boundaries, expect equal treatment when the other side takes power. As Republicans became weaker, and purveyors of platitudes they used "principles" as their shield against criticism. Like the voters, Democrats knew this was a sign of weakness. It was a bluff Democrats called. It's why you see Democrats continue to curb stomp Republicans and half the country. They know Republicans won't fight back. There isn't a "deal" they are all too willing to take to save their face, and throw us under the bus. Again. Look at what passes for "leadership" on the party: McConnell, McCarthy and people like Cheney. People who have existed in Washington for decades and have done exactly zero they said they would do. They are the first to go after their own party members and the last in any real, meaningful fight. They are nothing but another line of defense for Democrats. They abandoned any semblance of being an opposition party who actually represents the people. They only exist on paper for fundraising and occasional email telling us how they're going to fight for us. It's sad.

The KKK is old hat. The Aryan Brotherhood are the new guys. If you were take the entire membership of both organizations, they would comfortably fit in LSU's Tiger Stadium with room to spare. And keep in mind that most AB members are in prisons.

Even if we acknowledge that there are committed, real white supremacists out there who aren't affiliated and, say, quadruple their numbers, you're still at under a half million. Round up and you're at a whopping 0.14% of people in this country.

There are indeed white supremacists in the United States. White supremacy, however, is most decidedly *not* a problem in the United States. Just because you meet a bigot, it doesn't mean that the system is structurally bigoted.

Scope and depth are different things. A military has incredible depth, they do after all have the power to kill people. The scope tends to be fairly narrow. The bureaucracy has incredibly broad scope and usually moderate depth, but does things which nobody asked them to do and controls things which no one wanted them to control. Literal actual size(# of personnel) is usually a more serious problem than access to powers like executions.

237 Social conservatism is merely the recognition that some behaviors are poisonous to a society.

Ideally, yes. Social conservatism is the foundation of all conservatism: if you abandon virtue, you will have nothing else to conserve.

But its often held by people who just want the government to make society THEIR way, which isn't any better than the leftists. Both this sort of SC and the wokester have the same goal: use the power of the state to force everyone to behave their way.

True social conservatism strives for liberty and justice for all, shaped through a virtuous people led by faith, not forced at the point of a gun.

Biblically, and yes in the New Testament, the remedy to this was exile. Christians are supposed to exile(not necessarily in the sense of remove to a far away land but disassociate) unrepentant malefactors from this midst. There's a series of steps first beginning with talking to them privately and then bringing in more people like elders but it eventually ends with kicking them out.

It's purely tactical. The people who drive the messaging on the Left have observed that "white supremacist" is an effective slur to deploy against the Right in order to justify and deflect attention from their own subversion and power grabs. Since they control the mass media and social media battlefields, the Right has no effective means of counter-messaging.

They'll keep doing it as long as it keeps working until every white person is dead (however they define "white person") and all vestiges of white culture (however they define that) have been eradicated, simple as that.

Trump knew a lot of inside gov't baseball and thought he had it sussed but he wasn't introduced to the deep state guys at that level cause you don't get to know them until you've made your bones.

310 203 Its more a general statement. Usually social conservatives (such as myself) are strong on small government, but sometimes that disguises a desire for the government to be big enough to make people do what they think are right.

Every time someone says "there ought to be a law" that's a push for bigger government. Every time someone says "the government should do x" that's a push for bigger government. Increasing government power to accomplish a goal = bigger government.

336 What historically stands up in "strength" if it is vanquished by strength is understood and often forgotten as a "losing faction".

What stands up in clear *principle* is cited.

I can't imagine that Locke's letters would have been quite effective to a nation that hadn't seen one side and then another tortured and executed for a version of "Christian" belief, simply by a change in power (Cromwell,e.g.).

So the suffering of citizens is an unfortunate illustration of the "Golden Rule" and makes people receptive to the mutuality of suffering.

Once again, the "U.S. Military" is made up of individual soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, the great majority of whom have no interest in taking up arms against fellow Americans, and whose junior chain of command not only doesn't want to, but knows something about war crimes and what inevitably happens when they are found guilty. There are some who will follow orders without question and some senior people who may give such orders, but they are the exception, not the rule. Mutiny is not out of the question under those circumstances, and with National Guard troops who have homes and families and neighbors, it's even less likely that they would obey an order to fire on civilians.

See, small military = small government is a nebulous generality, and furthermore historically inaccurate. See nomadic cultures such as the Cossacks and the tribal cultures that influenced England.

Cultures with disproportionately high warrior populations are more republican. When war is the domain of the aristocracy, the country is naturally more dominated by the elite.

You've internalized an overly broad and sweeping interpretation.

Smaller military for sure, but the secret to conservatism isn't merely smaller federal government, but more local control of everything. Smaller state government as well, but more power at the local level. The more local the more powerful, because it not only is much more subject to immediate feedback and public dislike, but is much more likely to represent local beliefs and positions.

Polish beaches!
Posted by: CN

On the Baltic! Where the water (where it's shallow) can get up to 25 C (that's 77 F) in the summer!

Did you notice hardly ANYONE is in the ocean? Like visiting the beaches in Western Michigan. Beautiful beaches, but Lake Michigan is cold. Hardly anyone swims in it, unless you really don't mind cold water.
Same with Superior, only more so. Superior will have ice on it into late May, early June.

Her celebrity whore friends starting giving her snarky remarks over her husband running around in a MAGA hat and talking about how black people should think for themselves and shit. There may also have been a decrease in swanky fashionable invitations.

Well who expected more from a dimwit actress? She was a retard on Star Trek, how much more idiotic must she be in real life?

But while we're likely to say something similmar about a big city "NYC has it coming after all those years being Democrat" the difference is this:

We're talking about a direct, clear connection between one-party corrupt rule, and she's making some kind of moral judgment like the wrath of Mother Nature against non-Democrats.

For us its a clear line of connection between policy and results. For her its some kind of mystical religious vengeance against the people for voting for the wrong party. Like God is punishing the Amorites.

Arguably, neither has this plan of government unless we can save it through the process of itself.

People became less vigilant over time and wanted things for themselves, so they promoted leaders who would "give them what they wanted" ("itching ears"?) and really ramp up the rhetoric ("CROSS OF GOLD!") to get their way.

This has led to a main role of Government as giver and granter and no wonder people have lined up at the trough of what has become mainly seen as a trough to line up at.

This, is the saga of the Democratic Party.

Our military is large! No, it literally isn't. Our military budget is large is saying something different. Our military is oriented to doing X, has experience doing Y, these present such and such problems are specific things.

Our military is not large. We are not quantity oriented at this stage. Less than 1% of the population. Read some history.

Large militaries drawn from the population of citizens generally increase their position in the balance of power as compared to highly professionalized, aristocratic, or mercenary forces.

I honestly think we're in one of the better outcomes. Instead of the ambiguity of Venezuela's early elections, Trump delegitimized the government on his way out. Obviously the ideal would've been the government in our hands but this is a relatively good starting point to avoid the gulags.

I think so too. Our Reds failed to learn from the Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, or from Salvador Allende. Making too overt a move too soon led to a nasty outcome. Let us hope, at least, for the same here.

445 They will claim a national insurrection and ask for UN aid.

We will have a foreign army on our soil for the first time in over 240 years.


Pray that they will be that stupid.

If China comes, it will be like a property deal, amiright?

446 Really, get to know those in the military, and former military, before you thank them for their service. Some are your enemy, and want you dead.

The way I see it, it's pretty similar to how things'll go in every facet of American life. The military will crack along the same fault lines as the rest of us. I'm sure they all hate each other as much as the rest of us do. This is two countries, down the line, and we're enemies.

449 Our military is not large. We are not quantity oriented at this stage. Less than 1% of the population. Read some history.

Read some yourself. The military we've maintained post World War II is the largest peace time force ever kept in modern Western Civ. Not surprisingly - the government that wields it has become quite power mad. And now they're going to aim that military at the citizenry.

It's already started. I tell you what - reading may be too tough, so try a video assignment. Watch DC right now. It's being occupied. By Federal troops.

Standing forces will probably lean disproportionately to the central government and the state in which their base is located. Being stranded in some random base with a mish-mash of people tends to do that. Those who aren't standing will probably breakup as you say.

So your objection is specifically to peacetime size. First time you've ever said that, some might accuse you of moving goal posts, but I was only ever trying to get you to be specific and look at things closely. By historical metrics, less than 1% isn't very large for a military.

Where the forces are located, how they are funded, what their primary roles are all important questions in what kinds of threats a military may pose to the population.

If we were an infantry-oriented military with more historically normal quantity and troops regularly rotating out and back into the general population, ie a larger army, would that be more or less of a threat? What if our army was based on calling up men and minimal standing forces, the proportionally largest model?

453 And before you go off and rant about how I'm all about military spending, there is no advantage to our side at this point to have military spending. That's not a new position for me either. We're beyond the point of sloganeering about things though and need to seriously look at what we're up against, the how and the why.

456 I think someone with Mr. Honore Beauregard Sacrebleu's distinctive patois is quite right and fitting for the provincial occupation Vichy Government in the D.C. Reich. He has that certain je ne sais quoi, and I can't doubt Marshal Pétain would agree with his views on Harvard & Yale Law Schools. He's so stuck on stupid he's actually perfect for the puppet job.

457 Regarding the US military.

The Army from 1865-1939 excluding the WWI period (1917-1919) was exceedingly small and rather unpopular with the average citizen. Very few young men wanted to be an EM in the US Army. The Officer Corps however, was small and very elite. West Point was considered an elite Engineering school and in terms of social standing almost up there with the ivy league.

Today's its different.

Posted by: rcocean at February 19, 2021 04:50 PM (evE25)

458 The army after WW2, was historically large and included three big buildups, The Reagan build up, Vietnam, and Korea. Lots of draftees, and not just bottom of the barrel either. Plus a lot smart guys who served in WW2, stayed on as Nom-coms for 20 or 30 years. Mondale and Dukakais were both in the US army in the early 50s.

I doubt many of our "Best and the Brightest" have much to do with the US Army anymore.

459 Its astounding how crazy and just plain stupid these Democrats are. And they get zero blowback from the DC republicans.

Posted by: rcocean at February 19, 2021 04:55 PM (evE25)

460 Did anyone from the DC republicans or Conservative Inc. attack Pelosi for unconstitutionally contacting the JCS and telling them to "don't obey Trump"? This was in the news, and poof it was gone. With no real comment. It's insane of course. And was probably illegal. but who cares? Its the Democrats!

461 Honore being a General should be expected. The Military is affirmative action on steroids. Powell was a clever man, but zoomed up to Chief of Staff due entirely to his skin color.

Posted by: rcocean at February 19, 2021 04:59 PM (evE25)

462 Lets talk about how this 73 year old wore the U.S. Army Expert Infantryman Badge and Basic Parachutist Badge; but somehow avoided service in Vietnam. I bet the families of so many young men that were killed or wounded there would like to know too.

I think you need to know how much force can be projected by the military not necessarily the manpower.

Obvious solution is to give her more power by destroying the elites or something.
