They continue to work with those, particularly Sheriffs, that they were working with to get the sanctuaries in the first place. Doomsayers will say what they want but VA is still ahead of most. About 56 of Obama's states need to get their frickin' asses in gear, in one respect or another, most rikki-tik.

All cities are on what is known as “just-in-time” logistical structures where by the food on the shelves will be gone in less than 24 hours without re-supply. If this all kicks off (likely due to a commie president / congress that collapses the USD similar to the housing crises), avoid major urban areas, and be prepared to control the perimeter of them to keep the rats on the ship. The absolute longest this will continue will be one winter as long as the urban population is forced to stay in their utopia thereby forcing them to accept the conditions set by the rural populations. Those conditions will likely look like a set of amendments to the USC that returns this nation to a Republic where the rule of law over government is restored.

But I’m just a Grunt, trained to carry a SATCOM, working as an instructor at a Sniper School..... what do I know?
The weak point is truck stops.
Typically located on the outskirts of cities, and refueling infrastructure is easily damaged.

Cascading failure in logistics will happen quickly.

Nancy Pelosi may think she accomplished something by tearing that paper in half...
...clearly she has never seen what Flex Seal can do.

Just like a good anecdote to disease having an outsider as the POTUS has drawn out the ugly reality of leftist....even moderate and liberal Democrats are seeing the insanity of the left. I have said it many times to those who vote Democrat that you are voting for all the baggage of the insanity along with your preferred policies. Tyranny of LGBTQ infiltrating our schools, the cities ruled by leftist policies are the violent social disease ridden cesspools they envision for the entire country, high taxes that will kill jobs and force companies to move out of the country, attacks on the wealthy, more marijuana laws for Democrat creating a more empathetic citizenry and cities that smell like skunks sprayed them, destructive social policies that keep minorities specifically the apathetic and downtrodden desperate dependent on government welfare programs, the divisive identity politics of the left, eventual Oligarchies replacing the republic meaning all opportunities to rise above your station will be gone, all freedoms protected in the bill of rights will be gone. Vote Democrat and that is what you are also voting for. They don't understand the complexity of the deceit in in the swamp Sanders, Gabbard and Buttigieg will never be selected by the swampycorrupt DNC to represent the party....they are too honest for their tastes but Warren and Biden are already indoctrinated on the slimy inner workings of D.C......America elected Trump because we can see it and so do a lot of Democrats as well. The inner circle of DC living n their own isolated bubbles of corruption ignoring the people they represent for their own deviant desires of power and wealth. Americans need to decimate its political representatives this election and get rid of the old gatekeepers and start the government fresh with new believers.

No matter what becomes the Trump legacy, the biggest single achievement is that the proverbial curtain has been pulled back. That curtain is in actuality peoples' eyelids, now opened. Many may have wondered whether that substance was blood or some other kind of stain. Trump is the bottle of hydrogen peroxide the left has never had dripped on them.

Even wannabe or slightly tentative true believers will often not quit and are in the dictionary under "cognitive dissonance." I've met many people who voted for Obama simply because they "wanted to think of myself as being part of something historic." Then they realized what an unqualified disaster he was. Change behavior? Nope. Let's do it again because "frankly I was embarassed that I could've been so duped the first time."

They won't quit. So tell your wife hitting the bulk ammo sale really IS about the zombie apocalypse.

Nancy Pelosi:

She has become a TOOL of the Radical Left, watching her pander to the radical liberal left democrat base was pathetic. She is an old swamp dwelling politico trying to hold on to power. When the radical left are done with her, she will be swept aside and forgotten. SAYO'UNA'RA nancy pelosi, BON VOYAGE...

Pelosi has always been a radical leftist. She just no longer feels the need to fake moderation or decorum to maintain her leadership role, since the rest of the caucus, especially those with seniority in leadership positions, is so far left it does not matter anymore.

For reference, here are her Americans for Democratic Action (leftist) and American Conservative Union ratings for her first few years in Congress:

1987 - 93 - 0
1988 - 100 - 0
1989 - 95 - 4
1990 - 100 - 0
1991 - 90 - 0
1992 - 90 - 0
1993 - 95 - 0

And in several cases where she did not get full credit from the ADA, it was because she did not cast a vote, not because she went against the left's position on the particular vote. Another was her vote on NAFTA, since that legislation, originally negotiated by the Bush Administration but put to a vote under the Clinton Administration, divided the left, especially the old-school industrial union left (as opposed to the new-school public-sector union left).
