  1. Your grandchildren will be singing songs of praise for the Trump family and their Great Big Beautiful Wall.

    A few immigrants? No problem. From Muslim countries? No… problem. After all, there can’t be that many. Besides, they’ll assimilate, won’t they? Besides, it could never be a problem here in Montana… could it? Here is the Mall of America in Minnesota, courtesy of James Woods. Get your Christmas shopping done early!

    Notice that these Muslim immigrants couldn’t just walk across the border, either. We will need a Policy Wall to stop their invasion.

    Immigration = War

  2. So the Cowgirl has been taken over by Margery?

    • Sorry.. is this not an open forum for intellectual discussion? Seems to me that if puerile attempts at smearing the Trumps are fair game, then mentioning the great benefits that they are working hard to bring to all Americans are worth a mention. Or is too much truth a bad thing?

  3. Intellectual discussion ? Sounds more like someone who believe they can impress people enough with their superior dialogue to follow this crazy regime we now have in power. Thank God for down to earth common sense people who are working very hard to save our nation from the most dangerous time America has ever faced.

    • The reason that we’re in the Most Dangerous Time America has faced is because we’ve been engaged in a 50-year affair with socialism while also permitting grossly irresponsible immigration, both of which are intended to undermine our American culture for the sinister purposes of those who hate it. It’s not common sense that we hear from the Left, rather Commie Sense that sways the useful idiots who feel, rather than think.

      Our country is on the ragged edge of balkanizing and/or descending into civil war as the various subcultures that have developed have been emboldened by the Left’s nonsense narratives and SJW ideas. I am merely trying to point out the suicidal foolishness of these policies. The good news is that more and more people are getting it, and fewer and fewer are buying what the Left is selling. This is especially true now that the Left, freshly out of credible victim groups around which to build a cause, has invented new ones from thin air.

      Case in point: The Left wants us to believe that so-called “transgenders” have a right to be in the military. NO ONE has a right to be in the military. There is no reason that the military should feel obligated to admit crazies of any type into armed services. Anyone who looks into a mirror and sees something that’s not there is, by definition, insane.

      That’s just one of many Leftist agenda items that have more and more Americans turning to men like President Trump to guide the nation back to saner policies.

      • SJWs are this countries greatest asset because the believe in “Liberty and Justice For All”.

        Transgender are not crazy people. They are every bit as capable as anyone else to serve in the military.

        Coincidentially, the DoD just announced that because they are unable to meet their recruiting goals they are going to allow more waivers for people with diagnosed mental health conditions. I guess there aren’t enough so-called patriots willing to serve the country they beller about loving. SAD!

        “The U.S. Army said Monday it has made no changes to its policy for granting mental health waivers to recruits entering the service.

        A statement from Lt. Gen. Thomas C. Seamands, deputy chief of staff for Army personnel (G1), came a day after USA Today reported that people with a history of self-mutilation, bipolar disorder, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the service under an unannounced policy enacted in August.”

      • Its an 80+ year affair with socialism. It began in 1932 when FDR got elected. Ahh, to go back to those magical conservative times before Social Security, when we could just kick old people out on the street. Whatever happened to America?

        • What happened to America? We won WWII, but the ensuing generation was spoiled. Bit by bit, we quit doing what worked and instead began doing what felt good, or what was “popular.” We caved to the Hippies, when instead they should have been spanked and/or thrown out of college. Today they are the professors who never had to serve, or even be responsible for anything of significance, and so they continue to preach nonsense to custard headed public school products. We embarked on a bank-breaking Great Society, assuming that we could tax successful people without limit, that those receiving the free stuff would still have incentive to work, and would be grateful for the help- instead they resent all of what they’ve been given because it’s not enough for them to live as well as those who work and are successful. With the Federal government assuming roles it was never intended to have- providing the common welfare rather than just promoting it- neighborliness, charity, civic duty, and a sense of community have dimmed mightily. Meanwhile, we continue to tell non-achievers that their problems are the fault of the achievers (who we disingenuously call “overachievers” to make the lazy feel better), and that they are being “systematically” discriminated against- even if they are football players making millions each year. We’ve reached $20 trillion in debt, but according to Obama we don’t have a spending problem- we just need to tax successful people even more. Our military is the smallest, least ready, and with the oldest equipment since WWII, lacing us at greater and greater risk.
          Yet the SJW left keeps doubling down on everything that has led us to this point, as if doing more of the wrong thing (socialism) will somehow work, even though it has failed miserably every time it has been tried and impoverished those nations without exception.
          The economy is in shambles; in order to have a standard of living even close to what their parents had, mothers and father must both earn a paycheck. That’s okay, because the State raises children now, freeing mom to work. By the way, mom has one or two kids at most, and so our native population is declining. That’s okay too, because mom knows that being a mother is a drag, especially compared with sitting in front of computer all day. Don’t worry about our population not making enough workers, though. Ina addition to the labor supplied by Modern Slavery (illegal immigration) we have legally and intentionally brought in Not-Americans at the rate of 1,000,000 per year for 50 years, creating a country with 300,000,000 people, when natural population growth would have only gotten us to 200,000,000 by now. Those 100,000,000 extras are not assimilating; they are hunkering down in their enclaves, implementing their own laws and perpetuating their own subcultures. Of the other 200,000,000, only half of them even work.
          That’s what happened to America. One hell of a ride, but the crash is going to be spectacular.

      • You are such a cartoon! Your posts are Un-American, “stale bait for popularity at the expense of the public good…and the perverted ambition of another class of men, who will either hope to aggrandize themselves by the confusions of their country, or will flatter themselves with fairer prospects of elevation from the subdivision of the empire into several partial confederacies than from its union under one government.”(A.Hamilton, The Federalist Papers)
        You deny being one thing but your confused fact-value propaganda confirms that your convictions are ones that America has already judged inimical to her heart. There is a common theme in your crude attempts to manipulate history and the writings of the Founding Fathers in order to disingenuously obfuscate what you REALLY believe in.
        You state in this post and others that, “ too many non-European countries has undermined our American culture… It is a nation of people, with a culture derived from those descendants…,” and, “America is a real, particular place with real borders and real, flesh-and-blood people…,” and, “ The Founders were concerned about their own circumstances; they owed a duty to their own people…,” as well as, “Consanguinity!—blood ties! That’s pretty much the opposite of being a citizen of the world…,” and, “ The Founders frequently use the words we and us throughout the Declaration to describe that people…,” or, “various subcultures that have developed have been emboldened… undermine our American culture for the sinister purposes of those who hate it.”
        Now WHERE have I heard these ideas before? Lets Compare your statements to some selections of the original authors of your warped philosophy. They will far more succinctly convey the true viperous nature of your philosophy which you lack the courage or ability to plainly state.
        -“The State guarantees the internal and external safety of the country, but it also safeguards and transmits the spirit of the people, elaborated down the ages in its language, its customs, its faith.”*
        -“(The state)…sees not only the individual but the nation and the country; individuals and generations bound together by a moral law, with common traditions and a mission which suppressing the instinct for life closed in a brief circle of pleasure, builds up a higher life, founded on duty, a life free from the limitations of time and space, in which the individual, by self-sacrifice, the renunciation of self-interest, by death itself, can achieve that purely spiritual existence in which his value as a man consists.”*
        -“The State is only a means to an end. Its end and its purpose is to preserve and promote a community of human beings who are physically as well as spiritually kindred.”**
        -“We who are fighting for a new philosophy of life must never take our stand on the famous ‘basis of facts’, and especially not on mistaken facts. “**
        -“The vessel can have a meaning only if it preserves and safeguards the contents. Otherwise it is worthless.”**
        -“Hence the supreme purpose of the folkish State is to guard and preserve those original racial elements which, through their work in the cultural field, create that beauty and dignity which are characteristic of a higher mankind “**
        I hope your engineering is better than your understanding of anything American. Your 2+2=5 historical math makes me wonder if, as a rocket scientist, you were in charge of the Mars Climate Orbiter team.

        • Interesting quotes and all. I understand that SJW Tactic Number 1 is to attempt to pin the labels of “Fascist” and “Nazi” on the opponent, but as usual you missed the mark because there were no corollaries between what I quoted/wrote and what you cut-and-pasted above. Nice try though. Don’t forget to try calling me a racist next- that one seems to require no evidence at all for SJWs to get on board.
          By the way, decrying my ideas “Un-American” doesn’t make you sound at all like Joseph McCarthy. Snort.

          • By the way, if American citizenship is nothing special, why don’t you denounce yours? You can just be a “Citizen of the World”…. although I’ve never seen the passport for that type of citizenship.

            • ” You can just be a “Citizen of the World”…. although I’ve never seen the passport for that type of citizenship.”

              N.W.O. are still printing them. You would know if you were not so busy polishing your Jade Helm.

          • Not sure who or what “SJW” is but feel free to cling to whatever helps you. Is it some spooky Muslim group? Are you a Racist? Maybe, maybe not. Are you a fascist? Undeniably. Seems to me you pin yourself. Is there any other way to describe fascism as other than Un-American?

            “Have we not already seen enough of the fallacy and extravagance of those idle theories which have amused us with promises of an exemption from the imperfections, weaknesses and evils incident to society in every shape?” John Jay

            • Nice try at the false if-then-else, but there’s a small problem:

              Fascism /ˈfæʃɪzəm/ is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

              Considering my comments in light of the definition of the word, I am demonstrably, undeniably, not a fascist, any more than I am a piano. Perhaps you should quit using words you don’t understand. Since by definition I am not a fascist, that destroys your simplistic equation asserting that I am Un-American. I am an American Nationalist, which also does not make me Un-American- to the contrary, really. Besides, slinging labels my way does not counter my assertions. I wonder why you don’t try a rational argument? Oh, wait…

              You, on the other hand, are likely to be an SJW. I leave it to you to look up the meaning. You might even like the title.

              PS: The Jay quote is irrelevant.

      • What a rattling nut job. I will no loner waste my time responding to such trash.

  4. So, when Troy Dowling looks in the mirror and sees a Montanan, he’s insane? OK, so I will give you that one.

  5. Sorry, Downing.

  6. Downing is toast–dry toast at that.

  7. Another CARPETBAGGER!!!!!! Definitely not a Montanan as his pitch for office suggests.
