Trump: Military Solutions Are Locked And Loaded

Reuters reports:

U.S. President Donald Trump issued another warning to North Korea on Friday with a reference to American weapons as being “locked and loaded.” “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang.

    Un is sitting over there laughing his ass off. Trump has taken the bait – like the big mouthed carp he is – hook, line, and sinker. donnie is such a fucking fool….

    • Oh’behr in Minnesota

      and tool.

  • Insanity and ego locked and loaded in his senile brain!

  • Tawreos

    People are going to die because the Asshole in Chief can’t keep his fucking mouth shut.

    he also retweeted a couple of Fox and Friends stories about him going after McConnell and Flake

    • clay

      THAT should help. Who’s legislative liaison now that Priebus is “spending more time with his family”?

    • Tulle Christensen

      If McConnell goes, who will star in the new duck and cover cartoon?

      • Oh’behr in Minnesota

        Well, just turn Paul Ryan’s backward baseball cap around. Problem solved. /s

      Oh my god, I made the mistake of reading Sarah Palin’s FB page today about Cheetolini handing Yertl the Turtle a list of demands. Her loony followers are all out for Yertl’s blood. Mitch is toast for the crazypants crowd. They wants their healthcare taken away and the rich get a tax break, godammit!

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        Mitch thought he was sooo smart by being obstructionist but his shitty behavior gave rise to the polarization that is now threatening him.

        • Pat

          Couldn’t happen to a better slimeball. He owns it now, and it’s biting him. Delicious. (Not him, I hasten to add, but the uprising against him by his own).

        Yeah, you’ll pardon my skepticism

        Washington Examiner has always been a right wing rag

        And Trump is still saying he’ll build a wall.

      • GayOldLady

        This is the famed Rasmussen that is notoriously GOP biased. Their last poll showed him dipping with these same people. All it takes is the threat of using Nukes to get his ignorant base riled up.

        • Oh’behr in Minnesota

          Rasmussen lies. All the time.

        • Taylor

          I think this poll was done by Zogby…which is even less reliable than Rasmussen.

      • The_Wretched

        Putting Trump into a cocoon that shields him from the blowback of his insanity is not a good idea.

  • Dutchlander

    He has no plan. He has no strategy. He has nothing. The emperor has no clothes.

  • Zeldacat

    I bet nobody thought WWIII would be started on Twitter.

    • SoCalGal20

      Well if @jack would shut down Trump’s account for violating Twitter TOS this wouldn’t be an issue but no…

      • Tawreos

        Good point, people can be banned from twitter for saying mean things about others but not for tweeting us into a war.

        • Joe in PA

          Exactly. Sorry, didn’t see your comment.

          • Tawreos

            No big deal =)

    • ZhyKitty

      Just blows my mind every time I think about it.

    • Joe in PA
      • Lizard

        Twitter banning Trump. Wouldn’t that be something…

      • JCF

        Where is Twitter (and its servers) headquartered? If in the U.S, couldn’t Il Douche’ send in the jackboots?

    • Exatron

      I’m still surprised it’s being started by a circus clown.

      I may have to apologize to all the people who are afraid of them.

    • Karl Dubhe

      When the North Koreans are the ones who sound sane…

    • Pat

      Over to the generals who supposedly are in charge. Stop him.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    Chinese state-owned paper has said China will intervene and stop America if it attacks North Korea first : This loud mouth bluffing over nuclear war by Trump has completely backfired. He should keep his mouth locked.

    • BobSF_94117

      Trump’s plan has worked! In a crisis, China will now help us them…

    • Oh’behr in Minnesota

      I wish the USA didn’t have to deal with either (or any of them, Gop’eer Dominionists or any right wingers). Wish sanity would return to the USA.

    • thatotherjean

      Yeah, I’m finally with you. The Dominionist asshole scares me, but not as much as the idiot threatening nuclear war.

  • BobSF_94117

    Like they weren’t locked and loaded before this little tantrum?

      “….but the line *sounds* so good. Can I use it in ‘the show,’ please?!”

  • clay

    Yesterday he walked it back (though the news media called it doubling-down), saying he only meant if NK fired nuclear missiles, not the “any threat” he’d tweeted earlier. Now today, with this. If he just shut up and let Mattis, Haley, and Tillerson do their jobs . . .
    but Trump shutting up is NEVER on the agenda.

    • BobSF_94117

      If they fire a missile, how do you know if it’s nuclear until it lands?

  • Mike__in_Houston

    OT: I’m really having hell accessing JMG on my iPhone this morning. Not only am I getting those damned amazon ads again (started last night), but even if I open up JMG a second time, I can’t get down to the comments. I just keep getting more and more of those clickbait things. I only have an iPhone 5c, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

    I also got a full-page “2016 annual visitors survey” on my computer, but that was easy enough to get out of, since it opens on a separate page.

    Somebody really doesn’t want JMG to be accessible…

    • scorpiomike

      Are you sure it is all ads? I was getting the normal does of ads after the posts but before the comments. Then, I was getting a whole bunch of pics and links to old JMG posts. This is on my computer. Seems that the site had a change in format. I had to scroll and scroll and scroll to get to the comments. But now, it seems to have changed back.

      • Ernest Endevor

        Yes, it is. We were re-watching the Ken Burns The Rooosevelts last night, and in the 2nd episode I was struck by the size of Taft’s ass while playing golf. Like a rather more svelte version of our own beloved Trump.

        • Gustav2

          Taft asses on golf courses are quite common in Ohio, especially SE Ohio.

      Did The White house bring his specially-built bathtub out of storage for our current mountain of cottage cheese?

      • Ernest Endevor

        LOL. I’ve been wondering the same.

    • thatotherjean

      Taft probably didn’t cheat at golf, though. He was a graduate of Yale, a lawyer, a judge, civilian governor of the Philippines, President, a professor at Yale, and a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Trump is a failing businessman in the pocket of Vladimir Putin.

      • Ernest Endevor

        Exactly right. Taft got shit done.

        • thatotherjean

          He wasn’t much as President, but he did have a highly respectable career both before and after his stint in the White House–unlike its current occupant.

    That utter, abject FOOL is dangerously, lethally incapacitated.

    Are there no adults in the Republican party who will take charge to save the country and prevent the needless loss of human life?

    Are Republicans so power-mad that they will stand by and allow the destruction of an entire country, and risk global nuclear annihilation?

    This is mass Republican suicide, and they are taking the whole world with them. Jonestown 2017, and the Kool-Aid is Orange.

          Yup. It’s why Fred Phelps was excommunicated before he died.

      “Are Republicans so power-mad that they will stand by and allow the

    ROFLMAO. This guy is a blow hard and the entire world knows it.

  • TexasBoy

    I went to the zoo yesterday with two 8 year olds that we’re better behaved than Donald Trump.

  • GayOldLady

    No one who listened to Trump on the campaign trail can claim they didn’t know he was itching for war and a chance to use nukes. He made clear his willingness to use nukes on multiple occasions even asking a foreign policy expert “why can’t we use them”. Any SOB who voted for this madman and claimed that vote was because Hillary was a “hawk” should ROT IN THE HELL their madman is going to create WHEN he uses nukes. AND he WILL use them if someone does not intervene. The damned Congress and the VP needs to step up and 25th this madman before he set the entire planet on fire.

    Let’s throw another fly in the ointment. My prediction…………

    North Korea goes ahead with its threat, but the un-armed missiles go off course, and land instead at the border of Russia, China, and Mongolia. The US launches a tracking missile that…. follows them there, and voila, …..big BOOM!….against Russia and China, both.
    This is just like children playing with matches.
    It’s the unexpected that proves devastating.

    “Locked and loaded.” Some of us might recognize this prattle as a half-remembered phrase from the rifle range — in other words, as yet another macho feather-display by the Orange Peacock. Whether it translates into Chinese or Korean with any meaning is another matter.

    He certainly wouldn’t know a rifle from an entrenching tool. Dilettante.

    A prince ought to have no other aim or thought, nor select anything else for his study, than war and its rules and discipline; for this is the sole art that belongs to him who rules, and it is of such force that it not only upholds those who are born princes, but it often enables men to rise from a private station to that rank. And, on the contrary, it is seen that when princes have thought more of ease than of arms they have lost their states. And the first cause of your losing it is to neglect this art; and what enables you to acquire a state is to be master of the art …
