Gen. Cornwallis to George Washington: “Someday You’re Gonna Regret This”

The picture above is the painting “The Surrender of Lord Cornwallis” by John Turnbull. The original hangs in the Capitol Rotunda.

In October 1781 the British Army was surrounded at Yorktown. The British commander, General Lord Cornwallis, chose to surrender rather than face slaughter. His surrender ended the war and effectively made the United States free and independent.

Not everybody in America was rejoicing. British loyalists in America, known as “Tories,” who were the first known people to declare, “If X wins I’m moving to Canada,” found themselves moving to Canada.

I don’t have any proof (but neither does Adam Schiff) but I feel fully confident that a common British reaction to American independence was “They’re gonna regret this.” That is what opponents of Brexit are saying now, and it’s what they told us four years ago about electing Donald Trump.

The Democrats based their whole “Resistance” strategery on the idea that Trump would be a spectacular failure who would be abandoned by his supporters. But the only spectacular failure has been The Resistance.

The day may yet come when America regrets winning our independence. And a day may come when I regret voting for Donald Trump. But today is not that day.

      Paul then took to Twitter, disclosing his question. “My exact question was: Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together,” Paul stated, “and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”

        Rand could challenge the refusal of Roberts to read the question but Mitch likely doesn’t want a distraction to end this shit show tomorrow and Rand likely doesn’t have a majority vote without Mitch’s support.

    Our forefathers had the amazing ability to look ahead and understand what man is capable of doing with freedom. the good and the bad. Our Constitution was written with that in mind. To contain excess, and protect man from himself. I do not know of another country that is lucky enough to have this wonderful thing.

    If I lived in Schiff’s district and voted for him, I’d regret that vote…….but I don’t and even if I did, I wouldn’t vote for that bug eyed asshat.

    I definitely don’t regret voting for DJT either time, primary or general. I can’t wait to cast my vote for him again!

    In other news, that crazy gossip columnist that claims POTUS raped her in a department store dressing room claims to have saved her dress with DNA on it. I smell a set up. Either a government or military coupist got POTUS’s DNA and planted it on the dress for her OR she wants his DNA to plant it for the next “victim” to emerge closer to November.

    John Hayward
    No more witnesses should be called as a matter of principle. The Senate’s job is not to fix a bungled House impeachment or turn a slipshod referral into an open-ended political fishing expedition. Teach the House that it needs to get this right on the first try, or don’t bother.

    omg, anyone watching Laura Ingraham’s show tonight? She is covering the Dem insanity from tonight. Schiff did it again, made up a conversation between Trump and Putin at the Impeachment hearing. Nanz and Dems are saying Trump’s lawyers should be disbarred for defending Trump. Nana and the Dems are saying if Trump is acquitted, it won’t be a real acquittal because it wasn’t a real trial in the Senate. And much more. They are fucking crazy tonight, full blown panic has set in. You should look for Laura’s show on YouTube when it is posted.

        • Angie says:

          50-50 vote means no witnesses per impeachment trial rules.
          I think the vote will be minimum 51-49 no witnesses.
          Mitch is obviously letting Collins vote no because she is up for reelection in Maine (and she voted yes on Kavanaugh). She will vote to acquit.
          Meanwhile, Mitch gave Murkowski a pass on voting on Kavanaugh. She’s not getting another pass. I think she voted no on witnesses.
          But as I said, even without her, there will be no witnesses.

            *letting Collins vote yes, not no.

          • DandyTIger says:

            PROCEDURE AND GUIDELINES FOR
            IMPEACHMENT TRIALS IN THE
            UNITED STATES SENATE

            The Chief Justice has voted in the case of a tie in an
            impeachment trial on two occasions. On March 31, 1868, a motion
            was made that the Senate retire for consultation. The yeas were
            25 and the nays were 25, and the Chief Justice voted in the
            affirmative. At this point the Senate retired to its conference
            chamber.
            Various amendments to the impeachment rules were discussed
            in this conference. As a result of the vote by the Chief
            Justice, Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts moved “That
            the Chief Justice of the United States, presiding in the Senate
            on the trial of the President of the United States, is not a
            member of the Senate, and has no authority, under the
            Constitution, to vote on any question during the trial, and he
            can pronounce decision only as the organ of the Senate, with
            its assent.” \77\ This was defeated by a vote of 22 yeas to 26
            nays. Senator Drake then proposed the following: “It is the
            judgment of the Senate that under the Constitution the Chief
            Justice presiding over the Senate in the pending trial has no
            privilege of ruling questions of law arising thereon, but that
            all such questions should be submitted to a decision by the
            Senate alone.” \78\ This was defeated by 20 yeas to 30
            nays.\79\

    My feelings about Trump running for President was a gut reaction. I was not a fan of pre 2016 Donald. I found him tacky. The day he came down the escalator changed everything. I felt it.
    Has anyone else ever had one of those moments where you feel like you are being shown more than what you see? When you have gotten a visceral reaction. I don’t buy psychic stuff, but on Christmas Eve 1997 I was in a divebar by myself ( no pity I was managing a restaurant – you can’t fly home) . I went there every year for the holidays. It’s called Rudy’s. Love it but it is an armpit. A handsome man with a sexy southern drawl befriended me. I was like whatever I can do a Christmas Eve hook up, but then he started giving me vibes. I knew in my heart something was not right. I had told him I was going to catch a buzz and then go watch Scream 2 and was sticking to my plans. I was highly self entertained by my plans. He then told me I was going to die alone in a bar, put his cigarette out in my drink and dumped it on my head. Then fled. I skipped the movie because I felt this psycho might be there and just drank. Two days later I was walking to work on 9th Avenue there were wanted signs in all the windows with his face. Suspected murderer and he had beaten two guys to near death on Christmas Eve. I had just gotten this feeling about him which made no sense. He was young (so was I, ugh) fit and attractive, but I had this primal feeling about him.
    Has anyone else ever had an episode besides knowing obama was wrong?

    As expected, Collins is voting for witnesses. Said she needs to hear more. She is stupid, I listened to a lot of the Q&A the last two days, there is nothing else to hear. And Lamar Alexander said he is NOT voting to hear witnesses, voting to acquit.

        • taw46 says:

          I always thought that was why the DNC selected him over Hillary. They knew they could play the race card whenever someone criticized his policies and they could get away with most anything. The woman card wouldn’t work with Hillary because people had been criticizing her for years.

          • DeniseVB says:

            That’s when I knew HRC could care less about us, she caved for the race card.

          • Anthony says:

            From what I heard from someone privy to the R&B Committee machinations, DNC leadership believed that more Dems would go to the polls to vote for for a black man than a white woman. There was a meeting at Feinstein’s house the night before that lasted until 3:30am. In attendance were the Obamas, the Clintons, Madelyn Albright, John Kerry, The next day, HRC capitulated and gave her votes and delegates to The Dog Eater. The rest is history.

    Sounds like the Senate vote comes down to Murkowski. I have a feeling she’ll vote no witnesses, but not sure. But I wonder if there are not going to be witnesses, will any red state Dems add to that. Just like some might vote to acquit.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Reading further it seems like many don’t think Roberts would break a tie if the vote were 50-50. But, um, it’s Roberts. So hoping Murkowski does the obvious thing.

    I would love to see a concerted effort to have mittens removed. He was gifted his seat to be a check on Trump. The old guard is deceased and should be buried. I don’t think any of the elite blogger class/NRO schiffs grasp why Donald holds such appeal. They are willfully blind or actually hate us.
    I started moving to the right a little before 9/11. It was an odd time for me. Rudy woke me up. The city transformed before my eyes. Dinkins and Koch had allowed it to become a shithole.
    Unless you were there I think it impossible to fathom what Rudy did. Time Square was dreadful. What you see now did not exist in 1993. Yes there were other factors. Largely the gay men renting in Hell’s Kitchen. There was little if any CCTV back then. A few bad assed mothers took to the streets and filmed/taped the guys picking up prostitutes and then published what they found.
    Curtis Sliwa and his Guardian Angels were patrolling the streets under Dinkins, but no one had their back.
    I worked at Joe Allen on restaurant row in 1994. It is one of the most famous celebrity haunts in the world. I ran the door on Sundays. We boxed up great food for The Angels. Every viable restaurant fed them. We each had a night. These toxic men made it safe to walk from an eatery to a show. Rudy made the Angels almost obsolete. He did it with common sense. Quality of life crimes. You jumped a turnstile you got arrested. criminals do criminal things. They caught tens of thousands of people with warrants because they wanted to beat the fare. Time Square became a no go zone for petty idiots. I lived on 45th and worked on 46th between 8th and 9th. I was there for the change. It is an amazing place. Did not look like that under Dinkins or Koch. I fear big bird is turning back the clock. The same with terrorism– we have had very little since Donald! Under oblahblah it was common. Boston, San Bernardino, Pulse nightclub on and on. Trump will unleash the Kracken if and when idiots hit our soil. He will not make apologies and the father of a mass murderer will never sit behind him at a rally a few weeks after his son guns down 53 club kids at a gay bar. Killary has Secret Service protection. No way they didn’t know who he was!!!!!!
    Anyhow I saw leadership under America’s Mayor and I began my shift to the right.

    • elliesmom says:

      Any Republican who can get elected to statewide office in MA isn’t going to be a Republican like the rest of the country expects a Republican to be. As much as I admire Charlie Baker, the current Republican governor, and how much I think as former CEO of the highly successful Harvard Pilgrim Health care he could add to the healthcare debate nationally, he would only be marginally better than Ed Markey on other issues. The difference between Baker and Romney is Baker isn’t a drama queen. Romney is an attention whore. I have no doubt he contributed to the success of the Salt Lake City Olympics, but it’s not much of a stretch for a successful businessman to be able to do. But everything he does he needs adulation. Can you imagine him stopping somewhere to help someone without alerting the press? I can’t.

      That was funny. I hate garage sales too, that’s why I refuse to have one or participate in my neighborhoods bi-annual ones. I once told a woman I’d rather douse my nursery set with gasoline and set it on fire than sell it to her for $5. $5 she offered for a Jenny Lind convertible (to a bed) crib and matching dresser with changing table top. Set had the mattress and changing pad, both of which were always covered.

      The entire set was in pristine condition marked at $20 to move it because we were moving and the birch low balled me with $5 😡 Then she stole two packages of vacuum cleaner bags, that were marked .15 each or both for .25. She tucked the two packages under her coat and attempted to make off with them, over a quarter 🙄 I caught her at the end of the driveway and snatched them out from under her coat. I literally set fire to them in the street and told her to GTFO my property or I’d call the police. I loaded up my stuff and took it to Goodwill.

      I tried the one here in the neighborhood once. I lasted about 45 minutes and took my stuff to Goodwill. People most of which are junk dealers……I’ll give you .20 for these 5 outfits…..me….they still have the tags on them, these two are designer…..twenty cents my final offer……me……GFY.
