This is what winning looks like
This is what winning looks like.

Just as the President-Elect had promised, Donald Trump keeps true to his word to “Make America Great Again” with his newest picks retired Marine General James N. Mattis as Secretary of Defense and retired Marine General John F. Kelly as Secretary of Homeland Security. These picks to Cabinet-level positions just about secures that promise.

From the Associated Press:

President-elect Donald Trump said Thursday he will nominate retired Gen. James Mattis to be his defense secretary, making the announcement at a post-election victory rally in Cincinnati.

… And from the Washington Post:

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly to run the Department of Homeland Security, turning to a blunt-spoken border-security hawk who clashed with the Obama administration over women in combat and plans to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, according to people familiar with the decision.

General James N. “Mad Dog” Mattis, known to some of his enemies as the Slayer of Bodies, Proudest of Boys, Giver of No Fucks carries the nicknames of “Warrior Monk” and “Mad Dog Mattis” from those who have served under him during his 41 years of Marine Corps service, and he comes into the pivotal role as SECDEF as an Internet Legend. During his career of active duty service to the nation, Mattis has been Commander of the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) and led the 1st Marine Division into Iraq in March of 2003. Mattis heralds certain warrior ethos with such quotes as:

“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.”

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

Due to these appointments of such raw, patriotic embodiment of the American Spirit, liberals have gone into complete, anaphylactic shock. Their outbursts currently on Social Media and in the comments section of Mainstream Media articles written about these two Warriors shows they are now ready to win, and keep winning.  


Born in Indiana but was raised in Connecticut and Virginia. Joined the United States Marine Corps in 2001 and spent 8 years visiting exotic places, meeting strange people and always having a plan to kill everyone he met along the way. Has (4) tours of combat under his belt, both in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now has a much calmer lifestyle with his wife, Cristina. Enjoys powerlifting, drinking whiskey, shooting guns in the (still) free state of Virginia and making liberals lose their fucking minds. You can reach him at @mattycakes0231 on Twitter.
