AG Barr Speaks About the Domestic Terrorist Assault on America

It's here, if you want to watch.

If you don't want to watch, treat this as an open thread and talk about whatever you like. I ain't your daddy.

I mean, I assume I'm not your daddy. But who knows. It's a crazy world.

8 I can't even imagine the feelings going through someone's head that wants to join the police force.

And be used as a tool by coward politicians? Have hate heaped on you by the public? Have your every action turned into a sound bite and next 'viral' sensation?

Who needs that? Who wants that?

146 I'll flat out say that at this point, I don't think we have anything left. I think of what it must have been like to have been a Roman as the Visigoths sacked Rome, of a Byzantine as Constantinople fell to the Ottomans, of the English who watched their globe spanning empire recede into the sunset. That does not mean I will not do what I can, but I do not believe in any way that what I can do will accomplish anything against the array of forces that stand against us. It has made me physically ill this week, seeing the insurrectionists literally tear down this nation's foundation.

The George Floyd incident could have led to proper reform, one that the vast majority of Americans could have agreed upon, working together to do so. But the coup must override everything. And with the entire weight of the establishment behind it, with so many of our former fellow citizens either in open support or in submission to it, I do not see any light at the end of the tunnel. I will still vote, no matter what the obstacle but what good does it do if the left gets five(illicit) votes to my one?

The America I loved is dead, and I will mourn it for as long as I yet live. I still believe the founding principles are unmatched in human history in their promise and their rightness, no matter how flawed the application has been through the years. I'll take care of my family as best as I can, I'll never bow down to anyone else's demands, even if I pay a price for it, and I fully expect that I will, sooner than later. The enemy is as a roaring lion, seeking what it may devour.

I came THIS CLOSE to having the following exchange with her:

"Is your child white?"

"WHAT?!?! Who are you???"

"Your child looks white. She's blonde. You're white."

"And...?"

"So -- her life doesn't matter? Your sign says only Black Lives Matter."

"I'm calling 911."

"You're summoning the racist police? Remember --we're not suppose to do that. Besides since your daughter's life doesn't matter to you, why call the police?"

"Of course her life matters. All lives matter."

"YOU SAID 'ALL LIVES MATTER'!!! That's a white-racist code phrase! You are a white supremacist!!!"

But of course I didn't have that conversation. Because I'd be in jail now.

184 158 Ok, here is what I think of First Contact v Wrath of Khan.

Shut Up.

Ok, First Contact seems to be a movie designed around one liners and set pieces. Work on the dish. Picard in the Ready Room. The Cringeworthy Data griting out the Borg catchphrase. Everything else is just filler.

Wrath of Khan is of a piece. A story that has awesome moments, not 'awesome moments' with story filler.

Kind of an argument that you could make about a lot of movies.
Posted by: Aetius451AD at June 04, 2020 01:01 PM (A5zUN)

========

I don't think that First Contact is disjointed. There's a very clear line of thinking about vengeance and acceptance that runs through both Data and Picard's story. The B-story stuff doesn't really touch on the A-story stuff (another annoying thing about the movie, that it does the TNG A/B plot stuff), but it does provide entertainment and a solid setting for the meat of the story.

It's not a perfect film at all, but I think there's a lot to like there.

-vengeance and Ricardo Montalban. Essentially showing how a man of considerable gifts is completely destroyed by setting his feet upon the path. This thread also includes the idea of unintended consequences and not following up for Kirk.

-Kirk getting old (or at least feeling that way) and coming to grips with it.

-Loss. Real loss (that was undone at the end of the next movie, not undercut in the moment.)

-aside from those, there are no side plots with Scotty trying to get his still working again or Chekov trying on new wigs. There is no B story line, really to act as filler.

not following up for Kirk.



-Kirk getting old (or at least feeling that way) and coming to grips with it.



-Loss. Real loss (that was undone at the end of the next movie, not undercut in the moment.)



-aside from those, there are no side plots with Scotty trying to get
his still working again or Chekov trying on new wigs. There is no B

The new Dems, specifically the Justice Democrats like the Squad and Pramila Jayapal, are here to destroy America as we know it.

For example, Rashida Tlaib, self-identifies as Palestinian and previously worked as a paid (Soros) Open Society Org. activist, and she appears to have a much bigger agenda than lining her pockets and doing just enough pork projects for her district to stay in DC for 40 years.

309 That mini-trilogy, pretty much made on accident, made up of three complete stories, should be a template for how franchise movies make series of films.

I mean, if II was the end of it, we'd want Spock back, but it still felt like an actual ending. If III was the end of it, we got Spock back! If IV were the end of it, we got the Enterprise back!

He was such a loser it's amazing he won the first time. Mostly cause Ed Rendell had worn out his welcome and I think folks were beginning to see thru the Light Bringer.

So they put this old foagie up against a Philly lawyer and Boom. More voters than registered voted in some Philadelphia precincts!!!!!! What a surprise.

And Corbet was such a loser the farmers didn't bother to go into town to vote for him.

Corporate Cruiservative Tim Carney Claims That We Were Wrong To Dismiss Metastacizing Maoism on Campus

"We"?

Many of us took this very seriously and urged you to take it seriously.

You did not. You decided that things were pretty darn stable and so you could afford to agitate to give power to the Democrats for three election cycles in a row.

You ignored us, jeered us, and gatekept us away from your phoney-baloney Conservative, Inc. job opportunties.


Nice to see the Twitter Smart Set understand six fucking years after the rest of us did.

That's how you can tell who the Smart Ones are -- they're the ones who are always, always wrong for years and years and years, and then one day see the light and pretend they're the first to glimpse it.



By the way: We knew that these "kids" were a true danger to the safety, liberty, and prosperity of the United States partly because the standard response from the Coporate Cruiservatives who dominate "conservative" media was to surrender to their demands and attempt to appease them.

And virtue signal along with them on Twitter, to make sure everyone knows you're not a Garbage Person On the Wrong Side of History.

Oh: And also, ignore or attack those actually pushing back against them.

All of this resulted in the nominal right -- the pseudoright -- validating/confirming the Left's New World Order. Anyone who opposed the left's New World Order was a racist, or, at the very least, was to be suspected of being a racist for not taking pains enough on twitter to agree with the leftwing and thereby establish his bona fides as a non-racist.

As my friend says: the Corporate Cruiseservatives are the Defeat Mechanism of the conservative movement. They exist not to argue conservative principles to liberals, but to argue liberal principles to conservatives, and, when they deem it necessary, to impose liberal principles on conservatives.

Using the entire suit of tools they learned from their Very Good Leftist friends on Twitter -- deplatforming, cancellations, coordinated group denouncements, smear campaigns, etc.

Can conservatives afford to keep these traitors, saboteurs, and backbiters anywhere in the movement any longer?

When you have Maoist evil spreading through the country, and the supposed opponents of that Maoist evil are constantly looking for ways to excuse it and justify it as well-intentioned and idealistic, you know that the Maoist evil is not just winning but already almost completely victorious before the contest even begins.

Everytime. Everytime we warned them that The Humungous was a psycopathic death-machine, and every time, they told us to shut up, they could have good-faith dialogue with their Very Good Twitter Friend The Lord Humungous and persuade him with sweet reason and some Enterprise Zones.

These incompetent frauds and grifters are like Neville Chamberlain's toadies who realize in 1948 that "Oh yeah, that Hitler feller was a bad guy, I guess we should have paid attention to his words, declared intentions, and actual actions in furtherance of those declared intentions, instead of just calling anyone sounding the alarm about him a racist extremist bed-wetter who doesn't understand True Conservative Principles."

Hey, while I've got the attention of the Corporate Cruiservatives, can I ask a question?

Can we conservatives send you more of our hard-earned money so that you can openly advocate against us and in favor of your Very Good Liberal Twitter Friends?

Can we persuade you to allow us conservatives to put more of you non-conservatives in more positions of influence and power in media, political organizations, and government?

It's bothering me that only 90% of the positions in the "conservative" media, in "conservative" fundraising machines like Heritage, and slots in allegedly conservative governments are filled with "conservatarians," left-libertarians (albeit with a strong love of sucking corporate cock), and "Kennebunkport Conservatives," that is, pro-corporate liberals who speak with a Texas accent and mention abortion twice every four years.

I hate seeing something 90% competed but 10% incomplete.

Is there any way we can persuade Tim Carney, Jay Caruso, Seth Mandel, Antifapundit, and the rest of the Fake Conservatives who inexplicable dominate every level of conservative organizing to take all of the conservative money and all of the positions open to conservatives?

I'm anal that way. I'm a completist. I'd like to see a clean sweep, if you fellas would be willing to take more donations and more jobs to argue in favor of the left.

Conservatives are a minority in the country. A big minority, but a minority.

Okay, we accept that.

Conservatives are also a minority in the Republican Party.

Okay, we've... come to accept that. Barely. We're tired of being lied to be corporate-funded liberals who give us a bit of conservaspeak every 2 or 4 years and then go right back to advancing the cause of corporate neoliberalism.

But fine, okay, the game is rigged. We get that too.

But conservatives are also a minority in all "conservative" media and in all "conservative" fundraising grifts.

We must not accept that.

So why do we?

Jot down in your own mind how many real conservatives are getting money in a steady job at a "conservative" media property or a "conservative" extracting-money-from-old-people con.

Pretty short list, isn't it?

Why is that?

Why do we allow this continue?

The "Conservative" Media

Conservatives need not apply.

18 Willowed from prior thread, but this gave me some comfort so I'm pasting it here:


This too shall pass.

There will never be peace on this earth so long as it's the devil's domain. Darkness will never sleep, it only hides during the light.

As much as "repay evil with evil" dominates my mind morning, noon and night, I've been redeemed by the blood of Christ. And who can overcome Christ? No one. Not all the powers of Earth acting in rebellious unison.

So if God is good, and he is, and he is sovereign over all, which he also is, than what need I fear?

My job is to remain faithful, regardless of the world around me and to pass that knowledge on to future generations.

If the end of things or the end of an era or the end of the first age of America is drawing to a close, there is not much I can or should do to try to subvert the will of God.

Maybe it's destruction is necessary such that a blessed garden may again rise from its ruins.

36 That's one thing that gets me about RDR2. It's a lovely game with fine gameplay, but one of the many ways it's hopelessly cucked is how it portrays the Klan as hopelessly incompetent retards. The fact is that the South was pretty good at running out carpetbaggers and traitors, and it had nothing to do with elections. The Union didn't like it, but also wasn't risking a new war with much bloodier rules to enforce matters.

Bottom line is, no one to the right of Hillary Clinton has any right to laugh at the KKK. Until the 50's, they were much more effective than most conservatives, and especially compared to our "allies'" in law, finance, and think tanks.

38 Nice to see the Twitter Smart Set understand six fucking years after the rest of us did.
++++++++++++
Anyone who had kids in college in the mid aughts knew about it well before six years ago.

I was there. I graduated college in '08. I have told people that it is damn good thing I wasn't born a year later, because I wouldn't have made it.

When I was in college in the mid-aughts, it was leftist as hell but I could push back on most of the bullshit without personal penalty. I have one professor with whom I could not, and I dropped his class and lit up the administration as to why. I suffered no retribution.

Then something happened in 2008. That something Barack Obama. I don't understand all of the reasons, but something broke when Obama came on to the scene. I was graduated and done with college before the convention, but the mood changed instantly when he started to make waves and pull ahead. Edges got harder. Conflicts got more ... tense, maybe, is the word. Segregation into groups down with the struggle and everyone else started to happen organically and quickly.

There was something about Obama that made the campuses go crazy and double down hard. In retrospect, I think I understand it but at the time, in the moment, everything just became harder and more ragged. When he won, it was turned loose. Colleges went from being incredibly leftist but still somewhat open to what we have today.

Six years or so is when most people began to realize it. If you were there when Obama came, you saw it almost immediately.

Conflicts got more ... tense, maybe, is the word. Segregation into groups down with the struggle and everyone else started to happen organically and quickly.

The change was that Obama was from the "academic" wing of the left, meaning the true believers in the progressive worldview. Since WWII the dems had been dominated by the "pragmatics", the blue-collar conservatives who voted Dem because grandpa worked for the CCC during the Depression, because mom was a school-teacher and dad a union welder. They liked the idea of a social safety net, public schools, etc., and they turned out to vote and work the polls.

Obama's election convinced the hard left that the pragmatics were no longer needed, which was fine because the academics have long despised the pragmatics. So they felt free to let their freak flags fly. At the same time, like most revolutions, once they thought that they had won they started turning on each other, fighting for power by imposing increasing purity tests.

90 My theory is that many of these conservatives are desperate to preserve the institutions because they didn't build them and have no idea how to function outside them. Bill Buckley, Ronald Reagan, Irving Kristol, etc. all built the post-war conservative movement. They were influenced by the international alliance of WWII, the need to maintain strategic alliances in the face of international communism, the value of free markets in that struggle, etc. But that all evaporated when the USSR collapsed. The old order is an increasingly fragile shell that the Goldbergs, Bill Kristols, David Frenches, etc. are trying to maintain because they've spent their whole lives rising up through and moving among the various "conservative" groups. They're like the high schooler who does everything to craft a perfect resume for college applications, but has no idea how to function in the real world because they've never taken a risk before.

91 very sadly predictable. You almost have to be a
James Woods type to say lolgf. Even those that lean conservative will
just give in. And doing it within hours makes it more clear that there
was no change of heart, it was pressure. He would have looked at least a
tiny bit better if he waited. Not that I want to advise the poor guy,
but that it was so immediate really makes him look worse.

94 As I said in the last thread, we are going to be gaslit 24/7 from now until November.

Are these riots helping the Dems or Trump? Are people getting as angry as we are or are they simply weary and hope that if Orange Man goes away so will all the unrest?

I don't know the answer to that. But I do know that the MSM and every leftist Twitter idiot and Dem pol is going to make it look like our side is losing. Just like they did during the summer and fall of 2016. I was sure then that Trump would lose big. That's what all the polls said! They told me that I was a freak, a member of a rapidly vanishing tribe of white deplorables who would be swept aside after the election brought Queen Hill to the throne.

Now they're telling us the same - that every decent white is perfectly willing to take a knee and grovel and abase ourselves for the sin of being born white. Really?

Like in 2016, it's next to impossible to know what's really going on out there because of the media noise. Are people willing to submit and vote blue just to get some peace? Or are they quietly becoming very angry at the left? We can't tell because nobody can speak their true minds in public without being called racist - just like people in 2016 couldn't put Trump stickers on their cars for fear of getting their car keyed or getting into trouble at work. They kept their mouths shut and voted for Trump anyway.

Posted by: ace at June 04, 2020 12:23 PM (PbpT7)

113 I am saying this as calmly and rationally as I can:

Liberals have lost their ever-loving minds. They've never had corporate cronies, they don't know what to do with them.

"A liberal with a corporation supporting him is a little like a mule with a spinning wheel: nobody knows how he got it and he'll be damned if he knows how to use it. (Heh heh. Mule.)"

Can't seem to assess it any other way. Poorly thought out false control mechanisms, lies about viruses propped up as" Science" with a capital S. Any and every little thought with no logical sense or facts to back it up, being accepted as capital T Truth.

We on the Right are left to deal with a giant, well-funded mass mental illness. I know there is funding, but it's not as though it's rationally spent on rational ideas. They're fucking insane. Giant companies with hundreds of thousands of employees leaping to defend censorship.

Ace, whoo boy. Glad when I revised this website you guys hadn't fallen into the well of bullshit. Probably cause y'all still have the best comment section on the entire internet. You're not afraid of opposing opinions. Trolls are smashed with ruthless efficiency.

You don't burn books in the digital age. You simply de-search them. That's what they're doing. "YouTube will pull all misinformation that isn't in line with Bill Gates' WHO. Um. I thought Google and Microsoft were supposed to be competitive businesses?

This is the real home of" antifa" because when a closed cabal of cooperative "businesses" with a monopoly on digital thought take over the message, drive the message, and force the state onto bended knee, we call that fascism. Rightly so. The group who claims to be "antifa" are like actually in favor of digital corporate fascism.

Always struck me as funny when old soviet places called themselves "People's Republic of Germany" or something. Because it was not run by the people and it was NOT a republic. Like. Wow. That's some high level mindfuckery but nobody would be stupid enough to try flipped words all over again. People would know to look out for it! Nope, apparently not.

Antifa is the same thing, where it's name describes the exact opposite of what it is. Mind-boggling.

I remember when I was at college in Maryland I was in the young Republicans who had like, 15 members. Meanwhile the democrats had like hundreds upon hundreds of people showing up. Probably just because they liked pot or whatever it was, but I'm sure there was some high level brainwashing going on in those meetings.

We all just watched that Kelsey Grammar comedy movie nobody remembers.

I apologize for the length of the comment but I'm sure I'm not the only one who got DRAGGED back into this mess by tiny little dictators protecting me from my own misguided views about science and my immune system. Fuck that shit.

121 The Democrats have completely screwed up their handling of the riots, and I have concluded the Democrats are purposefully destroying their cities.

Governor Walz called up the entire Minnesota National Guard on Saturday, and put them into the cities. The other Democrats should have seen the success in Minneapolis Minnesota no later than Monday morning, and made plans to copy the model of riot suppression. We had two full nights of relative peace by then, while everyone else had increasing shit shows.

They could have touted Governor Walz, and had a great replacement this Summer for Senile Joe Biden. Walz literally imitates old line Democrats like Hubert Humphrey and Scoop Jackson. Too bad he is a straight white male.

156 Conciliatory Conservatism.

See if any of this sounds like any of your friends that you consider to be right-wing.

on Trump: "I know he's a little crude and I wish he wouldn't tweet so much, but I think he's doing a great job!"

on Coronavirus: "It's a really bad flu, but I think the reaction is overblown."

on Floyd: "I understand the protesting and America definitely has a long way to go on racism, but this rioting is out of hand."

on the Environment: "No doubt we need to take better care of the planet, but the Green New Deal is outrageous!"

Most or at least many milquetoast conservatives always enter into any conversation with the "lead with submission before defending your position" mindset. It's weak. It's not really defending your position at all, it's kissing the ring before submitting your request.

I sometimes wonder if many conservative men say before coitus to their lady "I certainly know there a longer and girthier packages out there, but I'd appreciate if you'd allow me to mount you."

158 So how do we fight this? Is there a non-violent way to fix this? We are shut out of the media, shut out of academia, shut out of corporate power, shut out of government, shut out of the unions, even shut out of most mainstream churches. We have whatever small businesses are left after the COVID and the riots -- and what else? Do we just sink like Britain, into irrelevancy? Right now, I think Trump loses and the Dems sweep the boards. What do we do then?

NATO was founded to defend against the Soviet Union. The GATT, World Bank, and IMF all sought to create economic stability and reduce poverty (since instability and poverty might provide openings for Soviet expansion). Much of cuckservatism is an attempt to defend the international order brought about by those organizations, even though the world that produced them no longer exists.

That is part of the point of all of this. Fear, or depression.

Propaganda always has two uses. On the one hand, it is supposed to encourage your supporters in the blinding radiance of their cause, on the other, it is to tamp down on anyone who would think differently that they are alone and bereft of anyone who thinks like they do in the silent corridors of their mind.

This is how you have Nazi or Stalinist situations. There were probably a majority of people who were going 'Hey, something ain't right here.' But the 20% who were fervent devotees were able to dominate them into submission.

This also seems to always work by inertia. People want to try to figure out what the hell is going on before they act and potentially risk whatever it is they have. The bad guys keep things moving so fast no one has any time to think and once they finally do have time to think, it is too late.

This is why the 2nd Amendment is so very, very important. Without it, it means that a vocal and mobilized/militarized 20% CAN dominate the other 80% after inertia wears off. That is why it HAS to be the last redoubt we stand on- because we will not have a chance to after.

222 I think my hope is still that Trump (and the people in his administration actually working for his agenda) will use the power of the government (sue, arrest and/or use miltary force) to:
-arrest blacklisting companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, CNN, NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS,
-arrest AG's and Politicians who don't enforce the law (letting all the criminals out).
-fire all the Obama holdovers (don't know how to make this legal).

Sigh. I don't know that any of this will happen. But it's what I hope for. Probably not very conservative of me to have so much reliance on the government.

I heard the comment from AOC yesterday, she was walking and talking about how all this was supposed to work, and at first I laughed and thought "what a dumb little bint she is." And then I remembered, she's an elected Congresscritter.

They dare not use the word "communism," but that's the common thread throughout all this. They want a communist takeover.

So as we're looking for all our parallels in history, 1917 might be as good a place to look. Lenin only got off the train AFTER the Czarists abdicated. He only took control because nobody tried to stop him.

He only kept power because the opposition was disorganized and unable to figure out what the hell they stood for and why they needed to fight back.

261 Nice to see the Twitter Smart Set understand six fucking years after the rest of us did.


What?!?

Six years? Ace, you've been aware of what's happening on campuses since at least 2002, if not earlier.

I've been warning specifically about Maoist and Maoism in the US since 2003.

Glad to see the warning is finally getting some traction.

What 99% of people don't understand -- even "conservative pundits" don't understand -- is that the revolution that is happening is specifically a switch from Soviet-style communism to Maoist-style communism.

Most people are still stuck in the mindset that "communism=Soviet/Stalin/Kremlin." Not any more.

In truth, the USSR was a lumbering, ignorant behemoth. Stalinism was top-down and innately bureaucratic.

The communists int eh US were dominated by the USSR for decades and decades. But now that there isn't any USSR to sponsor them, them has been an accelerating shift to Maoism, or at least an American-interpretation of Maoism, that is in fact vastly more dangerous and insidious. Because Maoism tries to conquer your soul, not just your body.

Intellectuals have taken Mao's ideas and sharpened them even further for the US market.

People on the right often still make te mistake of thinking that the opposition is top-down, that there are "people in charge," that a cabal of malefactors are financing and controlling the Left's actions. Not true. Maybe people behind the scenes lit the match, but the "prairie fire" now burns on its own.

This is just how it happened in Mao's time, too. Mao announced the beginning of the Cultural Revolution. And that was it -- the government for the most part did not carry it out. The dirty work, 95% of the horrors, were carried out voluntary by the people themselves, self-directed, no one forcing them or giving them orders.

That's what we're seeing now. An American Cultural Revolution.

I don't see it either. This is the inherent problem with conservatism. It just doesn't understand radicalism or how to respond with proportionate radicalism. Our side can talk about the appalling Left but only in politely outraged terms, as if our outrage can scandalize them into good behavior. To them, it's war; to us, it's debating society.

We need to make the commitment to war, and we're not even close.

287 So as we're looking for all our parallels in history, 1917 might be as good a place to look. Lenin only got off the train AFTER the Czarists abdicated. He only took control because nobody tried to stop him.

He only kept power because the opposition was disorganized and unable to figure out what the hell they stood for and why they needed to fight back.

Communist takeovers backed by the USSR typically involve a vanguard of useful idiot anarchists followed by strongmen promising law and order and protection of tradition(the devil can quote Sripturr for his purposes sort of thing). The USSR is dead however so I'm skeptical we'll see follow up.

289 Second point: A lot of people on the right think that a war with the left would be easy for us.

They are weak, trust fund babies. No military experience.

Those "pussies" are face to face with major police forces and tear gas every day and night this last 10 days. And have them on their knees.

Under-estimate them at our own peril.

Right now things are only semi-ugly.

But if the left ever decides to go full kinetic (shooting)...

This will get bloody. Very, very bloody.

Absolutely. Postmodernism is often called "cultural Marxism" but it behaves more like Maoism. This is one of the reasons for the schism in the Dem party. The gangsters and Marxists and Maoists are fighting each other. For now, the Marxists (like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders) are aligned well with the Maoists (like AOC and the entire Squad and the university communists), but this will end when they defeat the gangsters.

And when it ends, the Maoists will be feasting on the Marxists' blood.

311 That is part of the point of all of this. Fear, or depression.



Propaganda always has two uses. On the one hand, it is supposed to
encourage your supporters in the blinding radiance of their cause, on
the other, it is to tamp down on anyone who would think differently that
they are alone and bereft of anyone who thinks like they do in the
silent corridors of their mind.



This is how you have Nazi or Stalinist situations. There were
probably a majority of people who were going 'Hey, something ain't right
here.' But the 20% who were fervent devotees were able to dominate them
into submission.



This also seems to always work by inertia. People want to try to
figure out what the hell is going on before they act and potentially
risk whatever it is they have. The bad guys keep things moving so fast
no one has any time to think and once they finally do have time to
think, it is too late.



This is why the 2nd Amendment is so very, very important. Without
it, it means that a vocal and mobilized/militarized 20% CAN dominate the
other 80% after inertia wears off. That is why it HAS to be the last
redoubt we stand on- because we will not have a chance to after.

Ding, ding, ding, you got it. There was an affirmative action case before the Sup Court a very long time ago when Sandy O'Connor was still there. She said basically, I know that AA is wrong and Unconstitutional but we are allowing it to "right past wrongs" or some shit. Then she mused something along the lines of "but how long should we let it run, when will enough be enough" to reach equilibrium of past injustices. The correct answer is never. The left will always want more. What you do will never be enough for them. Not just regarding AA but regarding everything.

340 See if any of this sounds like any of your friends that you consider to be right-wing.

on Trump: "I know he's a little crude and I wish he wouldn't tweet so much, but I think he's doing a great job!"

on Coronavirus: "It's a really bad flu, but I think the reaction is overblown."

on Floyd: "I understand the protesting and America definitely has a long way to go on racism, but this rioting is out of hand."

on the Environment: "No doubt we need to take better care of the planet, but the Green New Deal is outrageous!"

Most or at least many milquetoast conservatives always enter into any conversation with the "lead with submission before defending your position" mindset. It's weak. It's not really defending your position at all, it's kissing the ring before submitting your request."

If you've read any of Scott Adams (Dilbert) writings on persuasion, he has a different take on this tactic. (I don't agree with him completely, but he has written a lot about it) One of the keys to his approach of Persuasion is that in order to get someone else to agree with you on anything, you first must find some point of agreement that you can emphasize; this allows you to get inside their mental defenses, after which you may be able to talk about things in which you want to persuade them to your way of thinking. Without that, there's really no point in talking at all to anyone on the other side at all.

An example: I despise the global warmists, and I would like to tell all of them 'You are scientific nincompoops who have created a false religion to help you impose your marxist dreams on humanity!" And then of course, they'd call me names, and we'd either shoot each other or never speak again.

I've decided, for myself, that there is no chance of me converting a true warmist, so I will never talk to one, I will never be a "friend" of one, I won't ride in the same car with one or work with one if there is any way to avoid it - because we can't co-exist. But, for people who's situations may force them to be around this walking pieces of human garbage, some coping mechanisms are necessary so that every minute of every day isn't constant war.

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Yamamoto's apocryphal quotation, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve," is, at least in part, an accurate description of America. We are slow to anger, we accept the status quo even when it is not in out best interests, and most of all we have accepted the slow and steady degradation of our culture and our country at the hands of our politicians.

We are a mostly apolitical people. Go to backyard barbecues or slide onto a bar stool or go to a baseball game and we won't be talking politics much. Because by and large we are doing well enough to push those issues aside. Sure, we discuss the (literally) burning issues of the day, but our default is to accept that we will eventually arrive at some accommodation, that our politicians, flawed as they are, will muddle through and get something accomplished.

No more. We no longer have the luxury of burying our heads in the sand and expecting the typical American result. Because we are now in a battle for the core values of our country. This is no longer a battle that we can ignore.

When the rule of law, the guarantees of our rights in the Constitution, the concept of equal application of the law falls by the wayside...sacrificed on the altar of progressivism, globalism and anarchy, we cannot stand back and say, "Somebody ought to do something." That somebody is us.

Vote, contact your politicians, exercise your rights as a free people, push back in whatever way you can against the encroachments of the anti-freedom, anti-liberty forces that are better prepared, more organized and certainly louder and more aggressive. Boycott the most outrageous of the corporations that are mostly arrayed against their own customers...the silent majority, the guy next you at the bar or the little league game or church. Buy weapons and learn how to use them. Create informal or formal networks of like-minded people. Speak out at town council meetings, campaign events and every public forum, and support only those politicians who are willing to join you in pushing back against the forces that will destroy American Exceptionalism.

The question is: are we going to awaken, and if we do, will it be to bend the knee or to exercise that "terrible resolve?"

16 speaking of boycotting companies, i walked into a Dick's/Field & Stream a few days ago, they had some major ammo sale going on.

it was the first time I've been in one in over 2 years, since they went leftist. I was actually stunned at the lack of ammo, not that they didn't have any, but they obviously had gotten rid of a bunch of "bad" ammo.

so i walked back out, safe in the knowledge that i did nothing more than waste their time.

24 The race riots of 1967 and 1968 got us Richard Nixon in 1968, and he barely beat out Hubert Humphrey.

And the country was frankly a lot more "center right" than it is today.

I don't think there is any formidable "terrible resolve" to be had.
A lot of people are scared and mad about this, but there is no "terrible resolve". That's a lot of horse puckey.

When a career Marine retired general (James Mattis) refers to the sitting president as some kind of "Nazi", then you know that something is really rotten somewhere.
Mattis is just a retired sorehead now, but a lot of career soldiers think the same thing.

"Can't we all just get along, and keep the appropriations coming for my service?"

They will all bend the knee toward whoever controls Congress.

36 Speaking up for yourself is a precondition of liberty.

At the same time, there are going to be a lot of people-- maybe a few million of them-- whom we can't persuade, who don't want to hear an opposing argument.

There is a bigger problem here than not being assertive enough.

How do you defuse a buttload of riled-up people who are angry about police brutality? Hell, in this case, it's not the most puzzling reaction. I have met some of the lower-wattage protesters around town: very young (none of them looking older than 30), mostly female too. Maybe they're being ignorant but I doubt Soros is paying them.

So, all clear on the courageous self-defense stuff. Still a lot of aimlessly angry humans here to deal with.

48 Thank you CBD. You included many of the elements that make up the First Amendment in your rant. Speaking up. Assembling. Publishing your viewpoints. May I add another? To me, the most important element of the First Amendment is the right to worship. The right to the free expression of conscience. The right to believe as you wish, and not look to the Government As God.

May I suggest in using all the other rights, including the 2nd, that we remember to avail ourselves of the right - the necessity - of seeking God's protection and provision.

Back in 1960, the Green Bay Packers had a disappointing season. At the beginning of the 1961 season, coach Vince Lombardi went to the locker room. He held up a football, and said - "Gentlemen, this is a football." In other words, he stripped things down to the fundamentals.

Never forget the fundamentals this country was founded upon.

He has been tasked to stop white people and ask them to kneel in solidarity. She dutifully gets down on her knees. By this time I am sick to my stomach. He then says to apologize for her white privelege. All this in a perfectly normal tone of voice. She then says she is not sure what to say, but apologizes. I couldn;t take anymore.

What has happened in the last week is not the end.

It may quiet down for a few weeks, but something else will start it up again.

The BLM and Antifa instigators did not take enough casualties, or get arrested in large enough numbers, to deter their next operation. And another operation will definitely come this summer.

What absolutely slays me is Mattis saying about Trump what he did, and the famous "Scholar" General does not realize that he is looking at asymetrical warfare being waged in the US by BLM/Antifa.

I haven't eaten from that place since they turned on the Salvation Army. I do got to Mcdonalds and they have been a bit shaky over recent years. I even have gone to BK a couple of times and they are full on lefty as a brand, and the places are usually dirty and unfriendly. But only Chick FIl A turned on its defenders. That is something I can not abide.

I bet we will never know how much they lost over that issue. But then again, It seems the attacks from the left have stopped. They made a business decision and likely decided they owned the South and their future growth required knee bending.

82 One thing we can do is start countering their propaganda.

If Apple, Nike, Ben and Jerry's, Twitter et al care so much about black lives then they can open factories and offices in black impoverished areas in Minneapolis and Ferguson.

If Patton Oswalt and Seth Rogen and Disney cares so much they can move from LA and to black impoverished areas, demand movies are shot there and setup movie studios and the like.

Instead they use black people as their personal slaves - paying them off to do the dirty work they claim to support.

Make them put their money where their mouth is - turn it back on them.

1. Buy as many weapons and as much ammunition for them as you can afford, and become proficient in their use, care and upkeep.

2. Make sure you have a Go Bag ready for everyone in your family, and a Go Place that you can get to reasonably quickly if necessary.

3. Make sure you have a network of 'rons and 'ettes you keep in contact with in your state regularly, who also know to get to the Go Place when things get crazy.

4. Have a throwaway phone with your 'ron and 'ette friends' contact information added, that you store with the battery and sim card OUT, for single use to call for your Bug-Out/Escape/Meet Up.

Probably a good idea to talk about these things at MoMes in person with friends once MoMes are no longer against The Best Medical Advice(tm).

97 Yamamoto (IIRC) had traveled around the US.

The world powers at the time were either geographically huge, like Russia and China, or densely industrial like England and Japan. The US was both, and so had a great potential capacity that would make it a terrible foe in a long war. Japan had no likely victory in a +2 year war. Yamamoto understood this but was unable to explain or impress upon his superiors.

bad tactics - he needed to wear a mask, be far away from a truck with a license number that could identify him, and he needed to be well hidden, under cover, with a planned escape route. After that, all he would have had to do is take 5 or 6 shots into the crowd at random and then skedaddled. That would have stopped them cold.

He has been tasked to stop white people and ask them to kneel in solidarity. She dutifully gets down on her knees. By this time I am sick to my stomach. He then says to apologize for her white privelege. All this in a perfectly normal tone of voice. She then says she is not sure what to say, but apologizes. I couldn;t take anymore.

133 From the ONT:

Trial will be very interesting.

And I think we all have to hope that as more evidence comes out, the prosecutor will not try to over-charge Officer Chauvin and then lead to an acquittal based on the evidence not meeting the requirements for conviction for the high charges.

For example, I think I read that yesterday they raised the charge from 3rd degree murder to 2nd degree murder. From what we already know, I don't even think they would have been successful with 3rd degree murder. So I do not understand the move to 2nd degree murder charge at all.

The prosecution is setting themselves up to fail.

Unless either...

--- they want to fail and get him acquitted and stir up racial rioting all over again when that happens
--- they know they can charge him with anything they want and he will be convicted, because no one wants to see more riots
Posted by: Clyde Shelton at June 04, 2020 07:11 AM (Do5/p)


Thinking about this, and thinking about the charges for the other 3, I wonder if the change to murder 2 is necessary to charge the other 3 with an accessory crime, because the intent standard for murder 3 is not high enough to support the accessory, aiding and abetting, charges.

I love that one. Reminds me of when Holder implemented a DoJ policy where managers had to reaffirm their LGBTQ employees sexuality; he said managers who didn't were to be assumed to be disapproving of it. Can you imagine HR telling you that you have to walk up to you gay employee and say, "Hey Pat, I think it's really awesome you're gay. Just wanted you to know that we're all supporting you in your gay lifestyle!!" *big smile, thumbs up*

Not only stupid, but not appreciated. How many black people really want to have a white person tell them they empathize with their struggle? They don't/ It's just setting up conflicting rules so that you can't win, you can't even opt out.

He has been tasked to stop white people and ask them to kneel in solidarity. She dutifully gets down on her knees. By this time I am sick to my stomach. He then says to apologize for her white privelege. All this in a perfectly normal tone of voice. She then says she is not sure what to say, but apologizes. I couldn;t take anymore.

To get a conviction, all the Prosecutor is gonna need to do is walk up the front, look at the jury, and say "This Guy! (points to Chauvin) Amiright???? The Prosecution rests." Guaranteed, he'll get a conviction.

182 If Trump loses in November, will his presidency be seen as a success or a failure? Obviously, it depends on who is doing the viewing. But the bottom line will be that under his watch Americans lost more of their rights and the Constitution was degraded to levels never before seen. Fair or not, that's what happened.

Any idea that he needs to wait until the election before he truly commits to a war with the Left is a fatal misapprehension of current events.

What does committing to war mean? We all have different ideas, I'm sure.

Here are 5 things I propose.
1. Radically overhaul how we meet and talk to the press. End the implicit deference we cede to them as inquisitors or even as legitimate agents of inquiry. Every gathering or briefing should begin with a presentation of their lies and journalistic derelictions, using names and specifics. Formalize a cheerfully aggressive and confrontational posture.

2. Call out democrats as historical and systemic racists. Cite history. This must be programmatic, unwavering, not just a one-off. (Too many one-off outbursts on our side with no follow-up).

3. Begin swift legal pursuit of Antifa to shut down their funds and leaders. Name names, keep public posted. What can't be legally prosecuted, call out in every public forum.

4. Begin an administration-wide education crash course in Leftism. Get the entire cabinet involved. Leftism and what it means must become the term of the day, preface every public utterance.

5. Form a "war room" of top well-spoken warrior conservatives such as Tammy Bruce, Candace Owens, Kurt Schlicter, David Horowitz. Develop proactive strategies to expose, embarrass, confront leftists in every corner of the culture.

that is the last school I would have expected. I assumed it would be T.U. or something about San Antonio. I don't know the details here to say the least. But if they were doxxing regular conservative Aggies, and the school made a point of joining in, that could be a problem. I have heard the place is left of what it was a couple decades ago, like almost every institution in this nation.

But if the school participated in harming students who are conservative, at a conservative school, this will not end well. When they contact the alumni, that will cause a real problem. Texas AM alumni are probably the most loyal and most giving in the nation. They are also the most conservative for a public school. My guess is the alumni will be having a talk with some of these more liberal admins.

Those companies get sued all the time. If a corporation does not retain the particular characteristic of personhood necessary to be sued (ie you cannot sue a wall or a stove or a tree), it would be IMPOSSIBLE TO SUE THEM. This would probably lead to invalidation of the limited liability nature of corporations, allowing individual shareholders to be sued for any malfeasance of said companies, but that'd be it's own series of legal difficulties.

Yes indeed! My MIL in her late 70s had this problem after heart surgery. She became very paranoid in the hospital and the staff couldn't even go near her. They called me in to sit with her in the middle of the night. Thankfully that calmed her down.

They figured out she couldn't tolerate the opioid pain relievers but I do think that just the anesthetic could cause problems like this in the elderly. She got better quickly.

Looks like good news.

3+ years after the plot.

Maybe, just maybe, 3 years from now we'll get around to exposing the Coronavirus fraud committed by blue governors. 4 years from now we'll get around to exposing Antifa.

We're always years behind the Left. Always on defense. Always responding.

And no I'm not saying "but I waaant it nowwww!" It's just an observation.

There are very thoughtful military members charged with carrying out these orders who will do it irrespective. However, as is the case with any order they are mindful that other options exist. While they also agree the threat of force is a useful tactic, it could have been done more tactfully by CiNC. The Twitter shit is juvenile bullshit and he needs to make it less about him and more about us. I will follow him either way not just because it is my duty, but it is my choice. But he is not above criticism that is fair and intelligent. I criticized the last guy for dividing the nation against each other and not using what is an undeniable "gift" he had to bring people together. He deliberately and with malice chose politics over comity. I will never forget that. But I also think this CiNC chooses himself first, always playing the victim and vomiting thoughtless pathos crap on Twitter, over thoughtful reflection. I get it. They tried to bring him down in the worst political scandal in our history. But get over it and let other people handle it. March forward and don't be distracted. People are looking for leadership, hope and direction. CiNC has the talent to do that, but he's wasting it on only being thought on the OPFOR scumbags. People are seeing that and wondering where the hell his leadership is. Instead we get another spur of the moment Twitter response to Mattis. Seriously? So protect your vanity over healing the country? Leave that to the people who work for you and stop stooping down to this garbage- and once and awhile at least consider the advice people give to you. But what do I know...

I wrote this to the question in the last thread.

Just after my dad had quadruple bypass surgery, when visiting him in the hospital he told me that the man in the bed opposite was an agent for the author Robert Ludlum (who I think was already dead by then) and was sent by Ludlum to steal stories of my dad's time in the Royal Navy to make into a novel.

Later when I told him what he said he refused point blank to believe it.

Unlike the two assassins, Chauvin would have been ignored had it not been for the people Billy Barr will only pretend to threaten. Floyd was not a President or even a leader of anything. He was an unemployed ex-con who's being used as a symbol by someone else. I don't think Chauvin meant to kill him, and the Minneapolis PD policy and procedure for restraint was conveniently removed from the website.

I have been watching some older South Park episodes recently, and it's amazing how prescient they are.

The episode about Mohammed images, obviously at the time was about a different group that was insisting everyone bow down to them. And Comedy Central did, indeed, bow down, not letting the episode show Mohammed.

Anyhoo, one of the illustrations of where we are, in the episode, everyone decided to get a pile of sand, bury their heads in it, and hope the Muslims would understand the weren't going to WATCH the tv show that was going to show Mohammed, weren't going to hear it, see it, or condone it in any way.

If we kneel down before them, bury our heads in the sand, maybe... just maybe, they'll not hurt us.

332 So if every police officer in the nation can be smeared as a racist and a murderer based on the actions of a few, then we can smear every Black Lives Matter "protester" as domestic terrorists based on Idris Elba's and LL Cool J's messages:

Here's some sample lyrics:

"Jumping up and down on police cars and vex. After Chauvin killed George Floyd we got next. Molotov cocktails anarchy on the set. The rich took the loot so now we loot s***," the Grammy-winner says. "Feeling like a caged tiger that's whipped to do tricks. That's why I started fires and yelled and threw bricks. They tried to run me over and arrest me and s***. "Tazed, pepper spray and a gaze with the kid."


Time to stop blaming just antifa and put the blame squarely back on everyone who claims to be a part of, or support, the Black Lives Matter movement.

Idris Elba Tweet: "This ain't a movie / ain't calling cut / we cutting the throat of the old system / so if you ain't with us / then you better run. New breed."

We have to start protecting first amendment rights. We can't have freedom of speech if the Left is allowed to bully and dox anyone that thinks differently. We need to open the churches back up TODAY. And we need to cut funding to the schools and universities. I would like to see changes to the laws to allow anyone that is qualified in a subject to teach it. No degree required.

337 No Floyd did not die of a heart attack. He died because the carotid sinus choke, applied for almost 9 minutes, caused his heart to slow down so much that it lost its ability to beat. If you don't understand what a carotid sinus choke does, and the coroner almost certainly doesn't, he would describe the heart not beating as a "heart attack".

340 This too shall pass.

There will never be peace on this earth so long as it's the devil's domain. Darkness will never sleep, it only hides during the light.

As much as "repay evil with evil" dominates my mind morning, noon and night, I've been redeemed by the blood of Christ. And who can overcome Christ? No one. Not all the powers of Earth acting in rebellious unison.

So if God is good, and he is, and he is sovereign over all, which he also is, than what need I fear?

My job is to remain faithful, regardless of the world around me and to pass that knowledge on to future generations.

If the end of things or the end of an era or the end of the first age of America is drawing to a close, there is not much I can or should do to try to subvert the will of God.

Maybe it's destruction is necessary such that a blessed garden may again rise from its ruins.

There was something put out recently that I reposted on the intertubes showing a black cop choking the living shit out of a black kid, you hear anything at all about that? I know, doesn't fit the narrative, but that's why I believe this is more about abuse of authority than about black/white issues.

I asked that several times now. Nobody has pointed to any evidence that this death was caused by racial animus. The cops involved were of different races. The cop who had his knee on the neck was a guy who apparently has a long history of using excessive force -- against suspects of all races.

There isn't any evidence that this was a racially-motivated incident.

375 As far as the "Silent Majority" goes:

I remember how low I felt during the summer and fall of 2016. I didn't think Trump had a chance in hell of being elected. All the polls showed the witch beating him by a zillion to one.

The media wanted us to believe we were just isolated little pockets of deplorables - sure, the stupid rednecks would vote for Trump, but all the "decent people" were for Hill. We heard that over and over and over again for months.

Now they are doing the same. They're telling us that a majority are fine with BLM and looting, ready to take a knee for social justice and all "decent" white people are OK with abasing themselves. And always, always there is the implication that if Trump is defeated, this will all end.

And we don't know because outside of AOSHQ so many are afraid to speak their true minds lest they be called racist. But many people who knew that if they put a Trump sticker on their car it would be keyed went into the voting booth and voted for Trump anyway.

I have no idea if the left's attempt to bully us into submission is going to work or not.

384 339 I saw that video as well. He was obviously already dead. They took no care with the body. What struck me was how disrepectful they were. Basically dragged his body onto the stretcher. We have all seen emergency personnel put an injured person a back board or put a collar and then have multiple people help to put the person on the gurney and then into the ambulence. They just grabbed him and kind of threw him on the gurney. No medical attention at all. Not even a pretense of it.
They deserve whatever they get. You wouldhave thought that after the Justine incident with the Muslim untrained cop that they wouldhave learned their lesson and gotten rid of a cop with 18 complaints against him but seeing as no one else even tried to stop that officer for 9 minutes, it is the whole department at fault here.

Christian Toto should know by now that this doesn't just happen organically.

Celebrities are a wing of the #Resistance/DNC coordinating their message via tools such as the "Decency Collective" a (no longer) secret twitter group. A lot of them hold positions within activist organization. For example, prolific producer Shonda Rhimes is on the BoD of Planned Parenthood, As such, she weaves abortion stories into all her shows.

These celebrity tweeters are no different from a DC journalist publishing a Fusion GPS story that's been prepared for them. They are coordinating their message, they are using scripts prepared for them by the DNC, BLM, etc.

Inaccurately being labelled a Nazi will elicit a rather visceral response from most everybody. This does not apply to Antifa. Freely and accurately label them Nazi. Or perhaps a Nazi-NKVD hybrid.

Oh, and advice. Asking advice from people circling you with knives is not wise. That has been his biggest problem.

402 Good luck winning anything when you can be stopped cold by being a called a racist or an anti-semite. You all never stand with your own people against the racial stranger so the battle is already lost. You live and breathe human equality which is the creed of your enemy. You look at the racial voting breakdown since Hart Cellar and Civil Rights; then believe somehow next election violent dumb brown people will suddenly see the light. Insanity.

403 "So how do we fight this? Is there a non-violent way to fix this? We are shut out of the media, shut out of academia, shut out of corporate power, shut out of government, shut out of the unions, even shut out of most mainstream churches. We have whatever small businesses are left after the COVID and the riots -- and what else? Do we just sink like Britain, into irrelevancy? Right now, I think Trump loses and the Dems sweep the boards. What do we do then?"

How did you fight it before? Everything and everyone with power and importance in this world hates Trump, and yet he is still president and alive. That's a literal miracle, and miracles don't come from man. Trump is where he is to serve a plan that God devised, and whatever comes next, remember it too is God's plan. And we know that his plan allows that a powerful Satanic force (or two) will conquer the earth, and most people that live will bend the knee, and most that don't will be killed. If you cling to your life, you will lose it.

78 I find these Dutch 'every day life' paintings to be fascinating. First, the sheer artistic talent needed to use light, detail and perspective so convincingly is powerful. I could spend hours noting the details of each object. Second, they reveal so much about the culture and customs of the country: what is included, the pets in the household, the arrangement of the rooms and their contents. Finally, the artist's choices of colors to best represent the objects.

Looking at other van Hoogstraten paintings, the man seems to have a sense of humor such as the face of the man, seated in the second room, who is seen from the back in the main painting.

Thanks, CBD, for including today's work.

110 ust back from the grocery, and it's already heat index close to 90 out there. I need water.

Here's a First World problem: I can't park my car in the shade under the trees in front of my door, because birds. (Twice this month I've walked out to see my car looking as if it had been decorated like a wedding cake, only, ewwww.) So I have to park in the NE lot, which has no shade at all until close to sundown -- which is not until 8 pm nowadays. Yes, I put up sunshades and the windows are tinted, but it gets HOT in a car. It makes me reluctant to go anywhere after about 9 in the morning.

Fortunately I'm on walkabout at home. But it's still annoying.

My company's CEO sent out an email that had a generic reference to not tolerating racism in the middle of a paragraph talking about the disruption to the business over the past few months.

Yeah, something is definitely "wrong" here.

It strikes me as if an alien was trying to simulate an environment a human would understand, but didn't quite get the details right.

Knowing nothing of the artist or his thoughts about why he created this, I'd presume this is intentional. He's TRYING to convey something being wrong.

Not sure what. Maybe the clues are found in symbolic messages that I don't have the tools to decode.

It requires a small air compressor, receiver, and a vortex tube.

You hit a button and cold compressed air pushes out the hot air before you get in. Any car with air suspension already has the compressor and possible a receiver. Vortex tubes are tiny and small solenoid valves are easy to get.

Only issue I see is that it might be a little noisy.

248 My company sent this out today:

Our Message of Inclusivity, Hope, and Action

The recent events surrounding the death of George Floyd and so many that have come before him, are a heart-breaking tragedy that has deeply impacted each of us in a personal way. The pain, anger, and sorrow that echo across the globe remind us that we are not yet where we need to be as a nation and as a people - that racial and social injustice are real, divisive, and intolerable. This is not someone else's fight; inclusion and diversity belong to each of us, and we must remain committed in realizing our shared vision of freedom, equality, and justice for all.

As a company and as a nation, we draw strength from our diversity; we achieve our greatest success through our inclusion; and we influence and change the future through our innovation where inclusion and diversity intersect.

We remain steadfast in our belief that each individual has the indelible right to be treated equally, to have a sense of belonging, and to have the opportunity to bring their best self forward. We have always worked toward creating conditions that promote inclusion on a daily basis and we are profoundly moved at the fierce compassion, desire, and drive for change that so many of you have already shown through your words and actions. Each of us has the power and capacity for change and we will continue to learn, share, and transform - building a future where all are treated fairly and with the dignity and respect that each of us deserves. To do anything less is to hold ourselves back from realizing our true capacity for human progress: achieving equality for all.

While our country may not be where it needs to be, we must not lose our sense of hope and purpose. At (company name), we will continue to uphold voices of diversity, to lift up the communities where we live and work, and to be the change we want to see. Now is the time to be bold; it is the time to unite. To look through the lens of possibility, to make the positive changes we need to move forward as a company, as a nation, and as a people. This is a topic of humanity, and people have always been at the heart of our mission.

We are here, we are listening, and we are acting. We welcome further dialogue and diversity of thought as we remain committed to our values and united by grace and respect to lift each other up and to be the voice and action of change.

We are all in this together, and together we are stronger.

Signed by our VP of Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Innovation. I wish I were making that title up.

264 One problem with trying to deal with the racial arguments of the Left is forgetting that they aren't racial arguments-- they're Marxist arguments, applying the same 'class struggle' bullshit to race.


Race is the vulnerability in a diverse* society like ours. Instead of class division (given that American culture is far less structured by class than most others), it becomes easier to factionalize between ethnicity/race.

277 One problem with trying to deal with the racial arguments of the Left is forgetting that they aren't racial arguments-- they're Marxist arguments, applying the same 'class struggle' bullshit to race.


Race is the vulnerability in a diverse* society like ours. Instead of class division (given that American culture is far less structured by class than most others), it becomes easier to factionalize between ethnicity/race.

Thanks CN you said this well.

So I've been really heartbroken about this. I really was born in Philly and I do love my city and I lived there thru college and for fifteen years afterward, and only moved b/c I couldn't get my eldest into a charter school, honestly.

pretty much everyone I work with (office in the city) lives in the city.

and now it's not my city anymore. it's gone. not so much bc of the rioting altho partly that, just because of your second thing. I'm not wanted there anymore.

so it finally has sunk in, and our stupid plans to move back when the eldest went to college are WAY WAY OVER WITH.

it's fine I feel better today but I had to go thru the stages of grief.

the people we know who live in town - even in the nabes (other than south philly of course! and probably the Far Northeast) are ALL IN on the "protesting" and I'm telling you it's just b/c they are SO SCARED. they cannot accept that they have no place in Philadelphia any longer and they think they can "pay the danegeld" and be allowed to stay. they are just doing little self-abnegating rituals to try to stay alive there, basically

I'm not mad at them anymore, just sad.

It's over. Philly is lost.

Marxism: Bourgeoisie vs. proletariat
Post-modern social constructionism: Oppressor vs. oppressed

This is why Marxism has largely failed, and post-modernism is ascendant (in the West, anyway). In the original Marxist dichotomy, there was a defined loser and a defined winner, a defined hero and a defined villain. But collectivism doesn't work, so any semblance of stability has to be destroyed to enable continuous revolution. Mao started to figure this out, but the PoMo's really figured it out.

The oppressor/oppressed dichotomy is *much* more useful because you can move the goalposts with ease. Once they eliminate the oppressors (white people writ large, and anyone else who is down with traditional American values, market economics, private ownership, etc.), there will suddenly be a group of new oppressors to be destroyed in the next turn of the revolutionary crank.

SJWism and every other offshoot of the postmodern clusterfuck is perfectly Marxist in terms of core philosophy, but it isn't economic - it's cultural. That is why it is so much more powerful. The economic dichotomy in Marxism is not flexible enough to do what they need. A constantly shifting cultural dichotomy is much more adaptable and useful to you if you're an evil collectivist.

381 Would you'll like to see what General Lengyel, the 4-star head of National Guars Bureau, sent out to all personnel? Of course you do!

To the Men and Women of the National Guard:

I am sickened by the death of George Floyd. I am horrified his 6 year old daughter will grow up without a father. And I am enraged that this story of George Floyd, of Philando Castile, of Trayvon Martin, and too many others keeps happening in our country, where unarmed men and women of color are the victims of police brutality and extrajudicial justice.

Our country has seen peaceful protests descend into unspeakable brutality at lunch counters in Montgomery and on bridges in Selma. Right now, anger and outrage are spilling out into the streets all across America. We all bear the scars of history, of oppressors and the oppressed. We cannot erase this legacy, but we can listen, we can learn, and we can be better. We must be better.

Everyone who wears the uniform of our country takes an oath to uphold the Constitution and everything for which it stands. If we are to fulfill our obligation as service members, as Americans, and as decent human beings, we have to take our oath seriously. We cannot tolerate racism, discrimination, or casual violence. We cannot abide divisiveness and hate. We cannot stand by and watch. We ask for the intercession of what Abraham Lincoln called "the better angels of our nature". Join me.

It doesn't specify, but I assume he then knelt in solidarity and self-flaggelated as penance for his inherited sins of slavery and racism.

I'm sure - hopefully! - that the admin knows this and is taking their own precautions, not trusting the IC to give them good info?!?!? I hope so anyway.

I guess the next question is what are they personally doing to help people of color?

Until they take action, I would point out that their words are meaningless, as is their apparent guilt.

477 I had an idea for a device to quickly cool a hot car that I haven't had the time to experiment on.
It requires a small air compressor, receiver, and a vortex tube.

You hit a button and cold compressed air pushes out the hot air before you get in. Any car with air suspension already has the compressor and possible a receiver. Vortex tubes are tiny and small solenoid valves are easy to get.

Only issue I see is that it might be a little noisy.
Posted by: sniffybigtoe at June 04, 2020 10:06 AM (1ISKN)

I think you'd find it needs a lot of air. The air compressors used for air suspension are quite small.

You know what might work? Stored coolth. Fill a cylinder like a scuba tank to 2000 psi. Cool the air from the compressor as it goes into the tank, but also have the tank in a cold chest cooled by the A/C system. On a signal from your key fob, a valve opens, and chilled air from the tank expands, cooling even more, and displaces hot air from the car interior. And as you drive off, and engine-driven compressor recharges the tank.

You'd have to run all the numbers, the PV=nRT stuff, to see if it would work.

Fen, there are several factors in play. A heart attack in itself often leads to depression and serious mood changes. Surgery anesthetic can also cause issues with brain chemicals. Medications can often cause these types of mental issues.

This needs to be addressed with his physicians. A possible change in meds and support counseling regarding the heart attack and his physical limitations would be the best place to start.

I don't recall what the head of the National Guard Bureau does exactly. but it is less than most think even with that name. And since I was in the Guard, it shows he isn't really that big of a deal since I still don't know.

But damn, what a thing to send out to men who are deploying. Why do so many act as if there has been no progress since Fort Sumter? Why do things seem ten times as bad as they were in the 80s? No one will ever convince me the internet wasn't a key factor in all of this. Sure there were so many other factors like fewer people attending church, fewer nuclear families, the 24 hour news cycle etc. But it just makes no sense that in the last ten years race has become some huge deal that is commented on on a daily basis and blamed for everything.

People were so worried at the Millenium that something bad would happen. We were happy when it didn't occur. My argument is it did occur but we just didn't realize it at the time.

Remember when the NBA and the Houston Rockets and others in the media went completely silent while their ChiCom masters cracked down in Hong Kong? They were all "the opinion of this one employee who tweeted #standwithhongkong does not reflect the opinions of the NBA or the Houston Rockets."

Now what? Now they're climbing over each other to support a LESS pointed version of protests. Hong Kong folks were literally just trying to maintain their laws. They were organized and they had a message. CAN'T ALLOW THAT. Buncha aimless dumbass looters? WE SUPPORT THIS.

Just more Big Gov bullshit message management.

567 Fen, there are several factors in play. A heart attack in itself often leads to depression and serious mood changes. Surgery anesthetic can also cause issues with brain chemicals. Medications can often cause these types of mental issues.

This needs to be addressed with his physicians. A possible change in meds and support counseling regarding the heart attack and his physical limitations would be the best place to start.
Posted by: Jen the original at June 04, 2020 10:56 AM (QR/xh)

As you surmise, medications can play a huge role in this kind of thing; in fact, people who have been relatively healthy and never had much hospital time are often most affected, because they have never built up any resistance to any drugs.

My father, who passed away last year at age 85, had an extended hospital stay about 3 years ago. He didn't have dementia, but something similar happened - we were with him when he was recovering after a procedure, and he was talking fine, seemed very coherent, but he kept looking out the window in his room, and getting noticably agitated whenver he did. We asked him "dad, what's wrong?" and he said "well it's those palm trees - see them? It's the gorillas that keep running up and down them, I can't believe they're letting them run free like that!"

There was nothing outside the window save for a parking lot full of cars. We worked out later that it was a bad combination of drugs, combined with one that they had written down wrong and were overdosing him on, that was messing with his mind so bad.

581 Another amusing hospital bed story - we were with my dad, and now he had a TV in his room, and some drug commercial came in (seemed to be in poor taste for a hospital tv, but whatever) and he brightened up and said "Oh, you remember that company? (talking to my mom) That's the one where we drove down to tour the plant, and they wanted me to buy it, and we almost did, but then they asked for all these ridiculous terms and tried to get us to sign that contract we just couldn't agree to...."

And my mom said "um, honey, all of that happened while you were laying in this hospital bed right here." And he said "really?" and you could tell he still kind of believed it was real even though, logically, he knew it couldn't be.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 04, 2020 10:47 AM (+eVzC)

*************




Just after my dad had quadruple bypass surgery, when visiting him in the hospital he told me that the man in the bed opposite was an agent for the author Robert Ludlum (who I think was already dead by then) and was sent by Ludlum to steal stories of my dad's time in the Royal Navy to make into a novel.

Later when I told him what he said he refused point blank to believe it.

The Morning Report - 6/4/20

kneejerkmat.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and I'm doing everything I can to muster whatever sense of optimism and hope left in me. But right now, I'm here to tell you that I'm close to running on empty. And yet, when I can stop, catch a breath and really examine things, part of me believes that what we're seeing may not be the December 1917 Revolution but quite possibly the 1968 Vietcong Tet Offensive. Unfortunately, it's not 10,000 miles away on the other side of the planet. It's right here, down the street, not just in the literal sense for me in Manhattan, but for all of you, because what's being done physically and politically to this city and Marxist-controlled blue state America is the fate that will befall the rest of America not only if Trump loses this fall, but if Democrats are allowed to run this country ever again.

Circling back to Tet, the media led by the most trusted liar in US history, Walter Cronkite, acting as an agent for the North Vietnamese government, spouted the lie that we could not win the Vietnam War, intentionally hiding the truth that Vietcong were all but wiped out in what was effectively a two-day banzai charge at American forces. I'm not going to get into the what-if's of alternate history, but the salient point was the damage was done and ultimately, all of Southeast Asia became a giant death camp of communist killing fields. Ironic considering today's geopolitics of that region, but I digress.

In the here and now, it is evident that a well-armed, well-organized terrorist force is not reliant on a foreign power and striking at a unified nation. They are comprised of fellow citizens - in name only - and backed by one of America's two major political parties. Once again, they're being promoted as noble freedom fighters by the same duplicitous media, but more dangerously, they're being shielded and given carte blanche to terrorize the populace by agents of law enforcement and national security at every level who are supposed to be protecting us. Rioters and looters may be arrested but with one or two exceptions, they are being released without bail to commit further acts of mayhem thanks to DA's and A'sG who are in fact part of the insurrection.

On top of that, even as police officers like St. Louis' David Dorn are butchered while trying to defend lives and property, or last night where two cops in Brooklyn who weren't even near a "protest" were ambushed, many of their fellow officers around the country have debased themselves by actually taking a knee in solidarity with... what exactly? George Floyd? No. They kneel and grovel at the feet of the terrorists over the myth that George Floyd is a victim of "systemic white supremacy." Whatever problems we have with the police and law enforcement, it is now crystal clear that the Left has finally turned this insidious, fictitious blood-libel of America as irredeemably racist and founded on racism into gospel truth.

Most horrendous of all, while President Trump is both figuratively and quite literally holding back the barbarians at the gates, the foul words of General James Mattis, dripping with venom, jealousy and spite yet lacking in anything even remotely resembling truth, were used like a rusty switchblade from under the soiled pillow of a $2.00 whore and thrust into his back. I have never served in the military, although I have had relatives who fought and died for this country, and at the risk of overstepping my bounds, from my perspective, Mattis is a disgrace to the uniform. With the nation on the verge of heading over a cliff, he's there to give it a hearty shove. I do not care about his military record; to see him wearing the same uniform as men who faced hell on earth at Pelelieu and Iwo Jima is beyond hateful. He is despicable and dare I say it, given the situation, a traitor.

The President, like all of us desperately clinging to and trying to preserve the last vestiges of sanity and our nation, stands alone. The people and institutions that he thought he could trust to stand with him in times of peril are now clearly part and parcel of the peril he is facing.

Turning what was a moronic phrase a few short weeks ago into something that now has real meaning, he and we are alone in this together. G-d I feel low.

JHC on a cracker. State Failure. And who frigging put the people who are failing so spectacularly there? You did, Minnesotans. And come next election, you'll still do the same thing. You voted in an anti-American, hate whitey, woman abuser in a statewide election for AG, you voted in an anti-American, hate whitey jihadi broad who wraps her head in a bath towel and does nothing constructive, other than bash the United States. You want this anarchy. You brought it on yourselves, so don't cry in your beers over state failure. You're the failures! Good GAWD.

37 Who funds riots? According to the JJS link in the first section, we all do. Yes, Soros is sending them money but so are taxpayers. This is depressingly familiar; every time we hear of some cultural outrage, there is a funding tie to some legislature it seems. Having worked to raise money for charities this amazes me to no end, because in my experience it's hard to get grant money.

38 Gosh, I loved it when Obama tried to bring everyone in America together by spearheading a fake treason investigation into the opposing party's candidate for president based on pure bullshit.

That really brought us together to say Russia all the time.

It was great.

41 Do you remember why Mattis resigned? Because he wanted our troops to stay at war in Syria forever, and Trump disagreed. Who talks about Syria now? No one in the media, because Trump was right, and Mattis was wrong. I think that's when Mattis' hatred of Trump really began; the egotistical little prima donna could not stand being proven wrong by an amateur, and he's been dying to stick a knife in him publicly every since.

Whatever Mattis once was, today he is a Traitor to this country, and a Disgrace to the Uniform.

43 I pray always for everybody and America. Here, in the Detroit area, protesters have tried to start riots and trouble, but, in all honesty, our governor ( whitmer)
Has done much more damage to our state than any protesters could. Before all this started , people protesting her were arrested, harassed, ticketed and ridiculed. Now? Protesters are not even chastised for not maintaining the social distancing rule. It is so disheartening. Our biggest enemy is within! We are just fortunate she was on vacation when this broke out. She never would have allowed the mayor of Detroit nor the police chief to take the necessary steps to keep this under control.

The $800 Million in Porkulus every year since 2008 - which has never been accounted for - is probably funding a lot of it as well.

And it's run out of the Kalorama Kommie Kompound. I'd bet on that.

Sadly, this brings me zero comfort. Comfort in knowing anybody will be prosecuted and imprisoned. Comfort in tearing down these radical insurrectionists. Comfort in pulling the roots out. I have no comfort that it's nothing but talk. And come November, remembering this massive, coordinated structure they already have in place, tells me they're ready for Operation Fraud. I have to be honest. If Donald Trump gets reelected, it will be a miracle. An absolute miracle. Convince me otherwise. Talk me off the ledge, 'cause I'm pretty much there.

54 why is Mattis so concerned about photo ops? Where in the Constitution do they ban presidential photo ops?
These guys either really think Trump scored big here or they think he failed so badly this is their chance to finally ruin him. I could be wrong as I try to avoid most of this stuff and watch sitcoms. But my guess is the American public doesn't give a damn about a photo op a block or two from the White House. I mean, who the hell cares if they used smoke or cs. They said they popped smoke btw.

Trump needs to fire his closest advisors, no doubt there. Whoever has sent this long cadre of disloyal jagoffs needs to be fired. Trump said it would be easy to pick a great cabinet. He was wrong about that.

57 The citizens of some town in California, Yucaipa I think it was, turned out to drive the Antifa types out of town before they could get started. About fifty or so men beat the ever-loving crap out of a couple of professional rioters and they left in a hurry. The cops were not there to protect the rioters (which obviously helped). Hope to see lots more of that.

75 Good morning

just read the Mattis statement in full

it's clear he went NT at some point

the thing about statements like these is, (to me) that the speaker assumes things about his audience that don't make sense

you can't appeal for unity to people who aren't interested in unity. You can't counsel peace to people who enjoy chaos. Mattis seems to ignore or not get that there is a sizeable cohort out there which is perfectly happy to break glass and steal things, to burn buildings for the thrill, to attack persons for no reason other than to act out evil fantasies.

You can't make emotional moral appeals to nihilists. These rioters are amoral- their actions 'make sense' to them. I don't know how we correct that.

We are headed for formations of vigilante death squads. Perhaps cops, ex or even off duty will join in.
This is where someone on the inside gets all the personal info on a rioter and then goes to their house and "protests" just like they did on police cars. IYKWIM.

The rioters and protestors were told to leave, it was curfew, it was violent, and the cops are correct to protect the President. The left went nuts becuz what Trump did was such a powerful and symbolic move and so they had to taint it

TBH, Lizzy, it won't matter. Project Veritas does really good work exposing terrible elements operating behind the scenes. If he has 100 pantifas on tape saying they're being instructed to kill white people and are being paid by Soros and directed by Barack Obama, the only thing that would happen is for it to get a little play on conservative blogs, maybe a long segment on Hannity or Tucker, and would be completely ignored by everybody else. We've been there...multiple times, countless times. 99.8% of the rest of the country would never even know what he exposed.

Posted by: Lady in Black, sans mask at June 04, 2020 08:12 AM (O+I8R)

83 I don't completely agree with Mattis, but you'd be foolish to ignore a few of his points. The president has done very little towards overcoming our divisions. His focus has been mostly consumed by fighting the bad guys. But he should be uniting us around destroying that common enemy. Talking about using active duty troops or the military at all, is always a very dynamic situation. You never really want to throw that grenade out haphazardly. You want to tactfully let people know it's an option. He makes a lot of this about "him" when it's about "us".

It's not like I'll ever vote for a Democrat. But he needs to rethink what his tactics. He is losing support with some people. IMVHO

After downtown Naperville IL was ransacked on Monday some still want to bend the knee. Peace, love BLM and looting



Naperville residents covered some downtown businesses with signs and messages to open hearts and promote understanding between neighbors Wednesday.


It was a different scene outside a boarded-up Apple store Monday, where a live video showing cleanup efforts in the area caught a man yelling at young women as they hung hearts saying "BLM" and "Spread the Love" on boarded-up storefronts.

"Young people are trying to give a sense of community that Black lives matter. It broke my heart. It still does, so I made 60 little hearts," Heather Roets said.

"Especially us girls who experience white privilege, we want to help people of color's voices be heard, we want to bring attention to this movement and we're here to say that we support Black Lives Matter, and we support everyone and spreading love," Hale said.

This is why DuPage county has gone Dim. Brainwashed dumbfucks like this. Maybe during the next riot the peaceful protestors can permanently beat the white privilege out of them

123 If there's a bright spot where the light shone through, it was Tucker Carlson's brilliant piece last night that showed the gigantic lie that's being foisted on the nation concerning "systemic racism."

It does not exist and hasn't for a long time.

TuCa cited police stats from recent years that showed only 10 unarmed blacks were killed last year. Ten. That's all. Only 10. Now we've known this for a long time and it's about time somebody in the media pointed out the massive Prog lie that America is a racist country. It (and we) are not racists.

Police don't go hunting blacks to kill, but that's not what PROGDA's propaganda wants you to think. This whole thing is based on a lie and I'm Thankful that the truth was finally shown for all to see. Thank you Tucker for finally standing up and exposing this outrageous falsehood that has cost so many lives for no reason other than power.

133 >>> 83 I don't completely agree with Mattis, but you'd be foolish to ignore a few of his points. The president has done very little towards overcoming our divisions. His focus has been mostly consumed by fighting the bad guys. But he should be uniting us around destroying that common enemy. Talking about using active duty troops or the military at all, is always a very dynamic situation. You never really want to throw that grenade out haphazardly. You want to tactfully let people know it's an option. He makes a lot of this about "him" when it's about "us".

General Mattis has regurgitated every single lie told by the Professional Liars regarding the President's walk to St. John's Church. I won't bother to refute them all here. But that act will long be remembered as a True Patriot showing American resolve, retaking the streets from rioting scum, enemies of our civilization.

The general is just the latest in a long line of gold-plated DC phonies--Hey, Esper--that President Trump has exposed just by being President Trump. He's Truth Serum. It is his super-power.

Mattis can stand with the Communist ANTIFA, the terrorists, the Agit-Prop Media, the cop-killers and the church-burners if he wants, just like he sided with Obama and his Ayatollah on the Iran Deal.

But long after this over-rated stuffed shirt is forgotten, Americans will remember dearly their President Who Stood Up For Civilization--and the Constitution--When No One Else Would.

Posted by: Brother Cavil Tim at June 04, 2020 08:04 AM (iKMuO)

On reading this, I'm not sure if you're referring to big picture things we all know about, or something more personal. Suffering personally is very hard to take, because being human we all want to know "Why?"; but "why" is a guestion that is never answered. Many over the centuries have felt that the answer in Job is very unsatisfying, but it's simple a statement of reality - that's the only answer for most of life that we're ever going to get.

Now as far as the big public things we're all watching, that's much easier to wrap our minds around. That is not being done by God; that is all being done by Evil Men. Why can they do this??? Because we don't live in the Garden, we live in a fallen world where Evil Men have the power to do Evil Things, if they so choose. And God doesn't step in and stop it; it's up to us to stop it, or not. Just as it was up to us, not God, to stop it in 1945, and 1918, and 1865, and an endless parade of dates back through all of the generations.

Sometimes I picture G_d looking down at all of us, and rhetorically shaking his head sadly, saying "Why do you keep blaming Me for all of the things that YOU do to yourselves???"

It's not like He hasn't tried telling us how to live, so that these things don't happen.

158 If I were Trump, I would go on national television and calmly state that I hear people's concerns about the constitutionality of sending in troops and will therefore be withdrawing all assistance that has not been specifically called for by the Governors.
Then, I would point out that due this circumstance, and after having offered assistance, any blame for the destruction of your cities belongs to your locally elected officials who are allowing it to happen.
Then, walk away.
The left wants Trump blamed either way. Either for the destruction they are allowing (since he didn't stop it) OR for using too heavy of a hand to stop it. Don't play the game.
I could care less if Chicago/NY/LA burns to the ground...I don't live there and if the people who do have no desire to demand that their local government put a stop to the destruction then I have zero fucks to give.

170 Obama: "Just Remember This Country Was Founded on Protest"


__________



Oh well, it's not as if he gave aid and comfort to an enemy like the the ISIS Muslim terrorists by blaming their behavior on the Crusades or something. Oh, wait.


Speaking of giving aid and comfort to the enemy ... F*ck Mattis! Were my ex-Marine father alive, he'd call that pussy a disgrace and a lot of other things -- and literally beat his ass into the ground had he the chance.

As an undergrad I ended up in political philosophy because that seemed to require the fewest early morning classes. While there I witnessed the incredible harassment against the faculty Straussians at my school. There are very few left now (anywhere), and even those people are old, but it was a harbinger of what has come to be. We are headed into very dark times.

174 On Wednesday, George Floyd's son, Quincy Mason, traveled to the spot where his father took his last breaths. After kneeling for a word of prayer, he didn't say much, but emotions were high.

"I'm united with my family, trying to get justice for my father and no man or woman should be without their father," Mason said.



Is this the son who hadn't seen his father since he was 5 years old, and didn't know who he was until his mother pointed Floyd out to him on TV?

177 I for one am very optimistic! These issues that have been festering, hidden or disguised for my whole life are coming to the fore. The enemy is naked for all to see. While the great american experiment is dead from the ashes a new one will be reborn. It will be bloody, costly and our foreign adversaries will try to take advantage but this catharsis will give birth to greater freedom and liberty.

181 It will make zero difference. It will run in a limited, closed loop in conservative circles and be starved of oxygen in the mainstream.

Depends. If Trump Tweets about it, a lot of people will see it. Which is why Ace's sidebar rant about people (including commenters here) who get the vapors about that stuff is apt.

I am a big fan of PV and they have made a significant impact.

One of their wins was the undercover with the Antifa-ish group (forget what they were calling themselves) in January 2017 -- they recorded them plotting to attack inauguration-eve events and the inauguration parade. They immediately contacted the FBI, etc, and we can only imagine what havoc they prevented.'

Their tapes of Creamer and is field organizer was also huge. There's a difference between suspecting what the Left does and getting proof. That video was proof, these asshoe's laughing about, the false flag ginning up of real violence at political events that their Democrat and MSM pals then blame on Trump or whoever their current target it. They admitted they've been busing people around states/across state lines to commit voter fraud for decades. Huge.

I really hope they have the goods on Antifa this time.

194 Tucker absolutely eviscerated the media's bullshit lie about 'genocide' and rampant murder of unarmed black people. The blanket statements being parroted by the media that black people are being 'hunted and killed' by the police. It's 100% bullshit. And not even good bullshit because it's so easily proven false.
But there's the rub. The people this is intended to rile up into violence don't fact check anything. They just accept it as truth.

Probably the best two episodes of Tucker these past two nights.

Don't forget these truths - MORE unarmed black people were killed during Obama's same term than Trumps. And those numbers are falling at a very fast rate under Trump.

197 "I'm told we suffer to seek His help and reveal His glory - but causing suffering to further your own glory?"

imo that is wrong doctrine ... on all points. "above all things God wants us to prosper and be in health, even as our soul prospers." three johns 2

the path is not clear, it is an athletic adventure to defeat the evils in our path. imo man is too accepting of evil, and must fight harder to win. I'm not sure if that is a "collective" thing (among fellow believers and patriots) ... or what exactly. I quit doing Christian outreach about 30 years ago, now moved toward political "work", maybe it's all my fault. heh


But most Americans still have fewer troubles than Paul faced, or many others in more perilous worldly conditions. Resist the devil and he will flee? Well at least he may lose in 2020 ... and he is being revealed as evil day by day. Perhaps the more evil of the left are losing with the majority, even as they smash and grab. idk, but "prosper and be in good health".

200 Take a look at Mattis and Esper and it becomes painfully obvious why, outside of the Cold War (and if you want to count it, Grenada) the United States has lost every war it has entered since WWII. The officers are petty ass politicians and victory is just an option. The cops kneeling are surrendering to the terrorists on your dime. Those guys not only won't be fired but will be promoted.

The Left always tries to impose Year Zero. We need to do so in response.

Replying to @RichHiggins_DC
Mattis left critically wounded SF guys on the battle field in Afghanistan. His element was the closest & only available relief force within reach. He left SF guys & allies die, because he didn't have a"clear picture on the ground" even his subordinate staff were ashamed. Disgrace
