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.

Blast from the past 1968:

"Approximately 10,500 police were sent in,
and by April 6, more than 6,700 Illinois National Guard troops had
arrived in Chicago with 5,000 soldiers from the 1st Armored and 5th
Infantry Divisions being ordered into the city by President Johnson."

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.

70 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.

Yes. It is very clear what happened now. At that time, though, in the maybe three months involved when Obama dethroned Hillary and took over, it got manic and it was very weird to be in the middle of it. I didn't know as much then as I do now, but it was *very* clear that something big was happening - big and dangerous.

Either we are experiencing a real existential threat here, or this is just politics as usual.

If it is a real threat, and we are at war for our future, people better damn well get vigilant.

Enemies can be anywhere, and the "conservatives" in the media and elective offices are a threat PRECISELY because people don't know they are enemies.

It's easy to toss verbal grenades at CNN and NYT and Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff. Meanwhile, the conservative checkmark brigade, and Fox News, and people like Richard Burr and Rod Rosenstein operate with damn near impunity... until someone shines a light on them.

I was in college in the mid 90s and I saw what was coming. Like you I could push back and not be destroyed. But I was always in the minority of opinion. And I wasnt really all that right wing then. I was a a moderate for the times maybe slightly to the right of center. And still on campus I was a right wing crazy by comparison to the majority. It was a big wake up call to me, having grown up in a comfy middle class Republican suburb.

Yeah. I remember after he got elected, I saw a poster that basically said that, Obama was elected, and that was good, but we still had so very far to go to eliminate racism.

And I thought to myself...they will never let this go. It will never be enough. "Racism" will always be held against us.

It was kind of a thresh-hold moment for me.

Being cocky in blue state shitholes is how Trump got elected. Are most white Americans outside the urban areas going to see China flu and rampaging joggers only to go "yeah, let's put them back in power?" What is more disturbing (or "wonderful" depending on who you are) is that most conservatives look at mail in voting and say that's it- our government doesn't even pretend to have fair elections anymore.

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.

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.

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.

141 Conservatives are in commentary, generally the most lucid and logical stuff out there, but on the whole I do not think they value it at the same level as leftists. They tend to value producing, creating, building, etc. more than the world of images and words.

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?"

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.

Saw a video earlier on a twitter feed. Guy, off camera recording, stops a young mask wearing girl walking down the street and tell her he is employed by BLM. 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.

65 I saw all this coming in the late 80's after reading Allan Bloom's "Closing of the American Mind" and learning how the Marxists infiltrated the universities over a century ago.


I'm frankly surprised it's taken this long ... but they needed to get people like the Clintons and Obamas in the White House to really light the needed fire.

66 Well, it's complicated ...
I've been strong on the "terrible resolve" side for a long, long time, but I'm feeling a little shaken myself this morning ... tempered by the knowledge that that is the exact feeling that the enemy is trying to force on me (and all of us) by every available means.

I remember a Tet back in the day when commies won a huge victory with the aid of American "news" that was fighting on their side even then.
Without the help of traitors in America it would have been a huge defeat.
I do not want to see that happen again.

72 So, my 13 yo daughter is lamenting going back to school, not because COVID, because of all this. Why? The kids that call me a Cracker will probably be allowed to do worse. Allowed? Yes, she complained and was told that that was not racial and that she should go apologize to the kids who used that term on her. For what? For doing whatever microaggression it was that caused them to use it on her. We are doomed. I have no where else to share this because I will be lit up and shamed. Hard to have a "conversation about race" when the only answer is to kneel or roll over and expose your soft undersides before they knife you figuratively or literally.

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.

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*

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.

Rather than allow the Hennepin County DA to decide what charges to make and to try the cases, ham-handed Keith Ellison, the AG for the State of Minnesota, will elbow his way to the front of the accusatory queue and proceed to overreach and fuck things up. Count on it.

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.

In a nutshell there is no force on earth to stop us once we get pissed off, because thee most dangerous place to be on earth when it goes hot is between the enemy and a patriot's bullet.

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.

It's no good having F-U money if you can't say F-U once in a while.

This is what makes Trump utterly unique. He spent his professional life trying to be accepted in the NY media set, but when push came to shove after he became President he showed everyone what he was really made of.

He doesn't need the people he originally sought the acceptance of.

F-U, he said.

My friend, Dave, the retired pastor, who had a heart attack and a
pacemaker installed is now having paranoia and believing irrational
things such as his daughters have changed their names and want nothing
to do with him. I think the "hospital dementia" is not an unusual thing
for older folks (He's 75) or after a heart surgery in the hospital, but
it's scary for his family Prayers for he and his family would be
appreciated.



Has anyone here experienced this kind of thing with their mom or dad after surgery?

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.

I think he needs a change of Venue to South Korea, or maybe Nepal. I know his lawyer will ask for it, I wonder if he'll get it. My betting is that the Fix is gonna be In for him.

In other news, the first legal hearing is being held for the McMichael's in the Arbery case, in Georgia. From the bits I'm seeing, it is going very, very badly for them. Even before all of this, I was arguing with Branca and saying that this was slam dunk conviction.

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.

Uh huh.

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."

Absolutely despicable.

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.

i didn't care about statues to various general. but i DO care about history. and the removal of these statues for no other reason than, "They offend me" is beyond the pale. erasing history does not get rid of it.

everyone forgets, the UNION pardoned the rebels after the war. they were allowed to rejoin with nothing more than renouncing their previous desire to split the US.

yes and as I said above, that has to do with the ill defined nature of the mission. And very little to do with who the Commander in Chief is.

396 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?

397 91 Systemic by definition means embedded in the system. Therefore, they're calling for a different one, and the necessity of overthrowing the current one.

It's not that there is no plan for the next system, because there is one very important part of the plan for the new system about which they are certain: they will be in charge.

They will be making all the new rules, and the rest of us will just grovel and comply. Or die.

I wonder if it is mostly about power only secondarily to the money that power will yield? Once they control more, picking winners and losers/graft is even easier than now. There are so many programs, and govt agencies, DOE, DOT, CDC, NIH, so many jobs to be handed out. All of which apparently do nothing to improve our readiness for a pandemic, or improve our children's success in school.

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.

When I was a child, the local paper still ran Kids cartoons, along with Mutt and Jeff. Of course, those were what they call 'ghost strips,' since the original artists had died long ago, but the syndicate kept hiring hacks to crank the things out.

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.

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.

This will never be over, because the Democrats will be using blacks-- and muslims and illegals-- as victims forever.

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.

This man is Northern European. Most of the men in jail are black. He didn't put a black square up on his Facebook page. He doesn't have to.

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.

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.

Wow, I've never heard those words before. They.must only know Philly from the brief moment in time where Center City was pretty nice (fifteen years, maybe?). Actually, I bet that's true of most cities. There's been a lot of new construction this century for the urban hipsters with the high tech jobs. It's a veneer.

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? I would suggest that they donate at least 40 hours a week to doing work for black charities or the NAACP or some such nonsense. Maybe after dedicating THEIR LIVES to helping people of color, they might ease their feelings of guilt. 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.

Posted by: An Observation


Biden is ahead because......it's and op. Weighted polling data skewed towards Democrats, and sure....Biden is ahead.

Really good polling is not really possible anymore, as people either don't have a landline, or have Caller ID, and won't answer an unknown phone call. Most polling people are calling from Area Code 202, by the way.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at June 04, 2020 08:03 AM (s2VJv)

Not a bad bet, JJ.

Michael Grunwald, a former editor at Time magazine, wrote a book trying to argue about all the good Porkulus did the country.

I'll never forget a section in the beginning of the book, where he writes that he was in a rush to collect gov't information about the stimulus for his book, because all the records were going to be erased from the public record shortly.

As a reporter, there was not one word of outrage that any evidence of where the money was going was about to be erased. The book, as you would expect, was a complete whitewash of the whole sorry financial episode. He was nothing more than a court stenographer.

Between that, and all those financial fines levied on the 'banksters' that ended up going to Obama-approved nonprofits, this weeks' insurrection was very well capitalized, indeed.

249 "As an undergrad I ended up in political philosophy because that seemed to require the fewest early morning classes."

You reminded me of the Heirarchy of class majors in College when I went. If you were really ambitious and smart, you went into the STEM field somewhere, preferably pre-med. (i was pushed into pre-med for 2 years by my parents, who really wanted a doctor in the family, until I finally told them "listen, I hate blood and I hate being around sick people.") Those who couldn't quite grasp the science but could still do math went to Business school, where they learned to make a lot of money.

If you were too lazy to do the work required for STEM of Business, then you went into History or Philosophy of some kind or any other Liberal Arts Major; now of course, many ambitious people took this route because it was an easy way to get a 4.0 if you're headed to post-grad.

Those who couldn't do math, and couldn't do science, and who couldn't even manage to get through the textbooks in your average History or Philosophy book, went for a decree in Education.

there was one final group - if you couldn't do math, and didn't understand science, and had no reading comprehension, and if you hated EVERYONE else, especially kids (so Education was out), then you had to go into something called "Social something or other."

That last one was almost a guarantee for a career as a University Administrator.

Unless there are stocks of weapons being held somewhere in case this thing flames out. And I still remember that Obama wanted to fund some sort of internal security army that would have more money than the Defense Dept.

258 Yes, Trump Can Use Military to Quell Spreading Riots - And He Should, If States, Cities Fail to Do the Job

___________


On his show yesterday, Mark Levin described how six presidents since the dawn of the 20th century (and dozens in total since it was signed into law by Jefferson in 1807) have invoked the Insurrection Act or federalized that National Guard for various national emergencies: Wilson, Hoover, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and both Bushes.


The Insurrection Act of 1807 grants the president the sweeping authority to use military force within the U.S. if he deems it necessary to prevent an uprising that threatens a state or civil rights.

259 The politicians and cops won't let you go to church, a prohibition upheld by the SCOTUS. But it's okay. If you try to go anyway, some rioter will burn it down. And then go free or be set free.

In NYC, the insane bail reform means a lot of arrestees don't even spend 24 hours in jail. It doesn't matter how many people they arrest for violating curfew or setting fires or beating people or killing or stealing. They just walk away.

The DAs, AGs, mayors and some police chiefs (though some seem to be somewhat sensible) are destroying our major cities. They are doing it on purpose. They are on their side. Many local governments and the federal LE/IC agencies and courts are actually on the side of America's enemies. Our enemies. The destroyers of our cities. They are aligned *against* this country and her citizens.

293 Everyone is missing the simple solution. Blame it on Europe! Shift the blame. I'm only half kidding.

They're the ones who colonized and split Africa into little pieces. They're the ones who have had a slave trade since Roman times. They're the ones who bought the slaves from various warring African warlords. That's a historical fact. They didn't just go into the jungle with nets. They bought black slaves from other black people.

That's the thing that always baffles me is people believe in a picture of slavery wherein a bunch of white dudes with nets just ventured into Africa and the poor Africans were just so surprised by these albino weirdos that they couldn't escape. No. They were already enslaved by the neighboring tribal chieftain.

Seriously though. Pinning all of slavery on the US is like pinning the car companies with garbage because people sometimes throw garbage from their cars. It's dumb. And this won't last because it's that dumb.

So I say we blame Europe. They're the ones who came here first and said "Fuck Indians."

They resent it because their values don't resonate with fitting into American culture so they are trying to redefine and destroy. The pandemic was not their D day so now they are trying something more clever because it's more honest in addressing the core emotions. America was founded on a Constitution and a Bill of Rights. Leave it to the liberals to conflate a small protest which didn't work with war, which did work. And look how they are having "war" where they can control the theater - in deep Blue.

Rosie admits he's accountable for approving erroneous FISA warrant applications. That surely means he committed a felony, yes? And will be prosecuted?

Well, I'll bet the law says persons signing the application broke the law only if they "knowingly" signed a false, inaccurate, or incomplete application. That's why Rosie said over and over again that he didn't read the entire application or ask any questions about it, and that what he signed was the product of a broken system.

Nice work if you can get it.

An additional note is that the Arab trade went north and provided slaves to the Ottoman empire. The Portuguese had trade posts on the west coast of Africa that provided slaves for the triangle trade(African tribes again functioning as the kidnappers). There's some additional complexity with the Papacy and Spanish Crown attempting to stamp out enslavement of Indians plus the relatively low resilience to European diseases that contributed to demand for African slaves.

Oh this one I was aware of. I looked into it once and there was some evidence that the English exported large amounts of Irish slaves to South America. They were actually treated worse than black slaves because they were less valuable. Irish women were used for breeding basically because a half-black slave was worth more than an Irish slave. Some of this has been disputed by historians so take it with a grain of salt but I dunno. Makes some sense. As an Irish-American, fuck the Queen. I get sick of all those European monarchy categories on Jeopardy too. I'm not about to burn down random businesses over it because that doesn't make any sense. Small government makes sense.

439 I just read a Facebook post from one of our parishioners. She posted a
three minute video on systemic racism, and white privilege, and steps I
can take to combat that.


I feel your pain. I have a decades long work relationship with a company in Manhattan. They are all limousine liberals, and sometimes it's really, really difficult for me to deal with them. I have another client in NC who is another raging liberal; he actually moved to NC so his vote would "make a difference." I don't think his company, which is in the entertainment industry, will survive the lockdown.

I like them all as people... but it's hard. The other day, Bozo Conservative just sort of shrugged and said "they get what they deserve. They voted for all of this, and they support it." And I agree.

442 New Orleans has been quiet until last night. A group tried to block a bridge after the police allowed them to block the interstate the night before. They fired tear gas and now that's the big story.
A lot of the protestors and especially the media were feeling left out of the attention the rest of the country were getting and saw an opportunity to become internet famous.
Right before the police took action the protesters announced "White allies to the front!". I'm not making that up.
The media runs this country.

445 Thanks, JJ for the write up. I can't even look at the links. Unless and until we get some arrests I feel scared. I do worry that if Trump uses the military the MSM will gaslight him even further. I want those AG's who let all the rioters go without charging them with federal crimes to be arrested and RICO'd for the Soros collusion. Even if they don't get sentenced the process is the punishment - let the MSM cover the outrage and inform the LIV!

Posted by: SorryBlackOrchid at June 04, 2020 09:25 AM (j9HX3)

He had no choice. All of his income for the rest of his life depends on keeping corporate endorsements. When his corporate masters yanked his chain, he had to do what they were told.

How to tell if someone is not controlled by the Corporate Establishment: you will never hear their name spoken, you will never see them mentioned, they will never appear on TV in any capacity. That's why everyone you see with a Public Persona is corruptible; if they aren't, they are kicked out forever.

Remember when Louie Gohmert at least used to be allowed to say something on Fox once in a while? I haven't seen him on anything in nearly a year, I think. (maybe he was allowed to sneak on Tucker a time or two) It isn't because Louie has stopped talking; it's because everything he, and anyone like him, says or does is completely embargoed from the public.

Drew Brees was told he was going to lose all of his income for the rest of his life if he didn't knuckle under.

480 Coming back to the slave trade, fascinating reads if I do say so good comments learned a lot.

I guess what pisses me off is this is the classic liberal "victimization" tactic that they use to divide people. I don't like terms like "kidnapped" and "stolen". As far as I can tell, I kind of make up my own history based on human nature.

You had lots of various African nations warring all the time, and the winners took the losers as their own slaves. The losing side had the same chance of winning and taking their own slaves. No one was fighting *against* slavery. You were just hoping to be the side that ended up with slaves because that meant that you didn't become a slave.

The idea that "innocent" Africans were just randomly "kidnapped" by "others" to me only serves to continue the victimization narrative that black people are subjected too by psycho liberals who need their votes. This wasn't always the case. It happened gradually as a way to divide and conquer the American people from a socialist direction.


In my opinion the best way to fight this liberal narrative is to undercut the fabricated story of victimization. They weren't victims. They were valiant warriors who lost. Shared human heritage yada yada yada. It would take a lot of work to dismantle this liberal lie but it's work that must be done if we are to live in a country where a man is judged by the content of his character and not the color of his skin. To me the left has ALWAYS been MUCH more racist.

I know I'm speaking to the choir but whatever.

Brother Tim, I hear you. This ordeal has strained my faith as well. Particularly the COVID. I thought at times that maybe I had no faith at all, I was that low. But God is faithful, even when we are not. If you can't hold on to Him right now, let Him hold on to you.

Remember, Jesus himself was killed, as well as all the apostles except John. The Bible never said life here on Earth was going to be great. It has fallen. At the end of this age we lose the battle.....but God himself shows up and wins the war. And we are in a spiritual war. The history of the world repeatedly reinforces this.

I predicted it last night as soon as I heard he stood up for the flag. It was obvious modern corporate America allows only one position and that is the position of the social media Left. No doubt he got hit hard by every advisor, agent, etc he knew and many he didn't. It is easy to take shots at Brees now but we should at least acknowledge how chilling this is. Pretty much all celebs have been made to bend the knee when they say the wrong thing.
Remember when Steve Martin had to delete a condolence tweet about Carrie Fisher? I keep telling these guys to turn the damn net off for a couple of weeks and they will move on. Maybe not in Brees' case but still. Every time someone bends the knee it makes it even more difficult for the next guy. They should think about that.

Posted by: Quint at June 04, 2020 10:01 AM (hHxp2)

490 Hi all. Many of you helped me when I was feeling low, so I'm going to return the favor.
First off, despite what the polls say, I think Trump wins the election. People really are tired of this shit. They may be touched by all the meaningless trite of kneeling etc, but they're not going to let Democrats disarm them. They see Democrat mayors standing by while neighborhoods burn, and they damn sure don't want that for their neighborhoods. The latest - with that St. Louis DA freeing 500 criminals? How well is that going to play in the suburbs?

I was greatly encouraged by what I saw in the PA primary, with the incumbent (Trump) getting more votes than Biden. That tells me people are going to crawl over broken glass to vote for our guy.

Second, I believe the COVID lockdown is over. The economy is going to get better. I don't know if there will be a COVID spike, but I doubt people will accept another lockdown.
Just my two cents



Posted by: Mike at June 04, 2020 10:09 AM (WWn8/)

491 I looked into it, and Tiger Woods has probably made more in endorsements than any human. His net worth is over $1.5 Billion. And when compared to other sports stars, Woods makes the highest percentage of his earnings, over 90 percent, from endorsements.

496 I don't have a problem with Bush or Mattis disagreeing with Trump since he can say and tweet some really poor comments. However, their comments in support of the lies of the left against Trump has turned me against them. These protesters are mostly anti-American and anti-capitalist. Trump is doing a good job overall compared to anything the left can offer.

As far as law enforcement; I've heard many here rail against them just as the left does. Frankly, law enforcement might as well go home and let the National Guard and military handle everything since the left thinks their racists and some on the right think their the Stasi. As far as our endless and stupid wars; well we're still in Afghanistan, Iraq as well as Syria so maybe they are necessary.

Something good out of all this is the democrats have exposed themselves as the true leftists they are. Also, Trump is improving in the way he presents himself as President and he gets things done.

Oh FFS! Move over condom for safe sex, your kit better include a mask as well.

Couples should have sex while wearing face masks to reduce the risk of transmitting Covid-19 to one another, a new study suggests.

On 8 May, researchers at Harvard University published a study in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine on the safest ways to have sex during the coronavirus outbreak.

On Monday, new laws were implemented in England that made it illegal for couples who live in different homes to have sex indoors and stay overnight.

Guidance in place in the rest of the UK also prevents people from having sex with anyone outside of their household.

Despite it being against guidelines to socialise with different households in many US states, the Harvard scientists have ranked different sexual scenarios on the basis of how likely it is that you would catch coronavirus while doing them.

Meet Karen. Meet white guilt, uninformed, virtue signaling Karen.

A viral video circulating on social media shows a young man purporting to be a Black Lives Matter member commanding a white woman to drop to her knees and apologize for her so-called white privilege to “show solidarity for the situation.”

“Excuse me. I work for Black Lives Matter. … Since I work for that company, my CEO has told me to come out today and to bring you on your knees because you have white privilege,” the video footage shows the man saying to the woman.

“So if they see that a white person is getting on their knees, that shows solidarity for the situation the situation. And could you just please apologize for, you know, for your white privilege? Just apologize. It’s big. It’s large in this country.”

A message from the leadership of NTEU Chapter 280
June 2, 2020

Content warning: racism, violence, death

Black lives matter. Black voices and experiences matter. We value, respect, and support our black colleagues and acknowledge that just saying those words is not enough.

It has been almost six years since Eric Garner’s last words: “I can’t breathe.” The number of black lives unjustly and violently taken by police between when Eric Garner said those words and when George Floyd said those same last words as he was murdered last week is horrific. Empty promises of reform and change since well before Eric Garner’s death have not saved the thousands of black lives lost to police brutality in this country, so it is no wonder that people have taken to the streets to try to make their voices heard even in the midst of a pandemic.

When black voices, experiences and lives have been devalued and treated as expendable by their own government for centuries, it makes sense that black people in America and their allies are demanding to be heard. We support the protests and demonstrations and the full and free exercise of First Amendment rights. We do not support the use of violence by police or protesters.

For many of us who are not black, indigenous and/or people of color, some of the current feelings or experiences may be new or recently intensified for us. Feelings of constant fear, anxiety, uncertainty, frustration, emotional exhaustion, or losing trust in institutions or people meant to serve the public. It is important that white people and others with privilege and power acknowledge that systemic racism, which is built into the foundations of our country and culture, imposes a constant environment of oppression on people who are black, indigenous and/or people of color that can generate those same kinds of feelings at all times and in all contexts. If that seems overwhelming, it's because it is. It is our responsibility to use our power and privilege, little though it might seem to us at times, to do whatever we can to dismantle systems that perpetuate racism and injustice, to listen to black voices, and to follow through with our actions. We need to look inward as well and find the ways that systemic racism has shaped and benefited us and then do everything we can to change that reality for the future.

We, the leadership of NTEU Chapter 280, want to acknowledge the burdens that weigh, consciously or subconsciously, every day on our members who are black, indigenous and/or people of color. We thank you for your commitment to public service despite the grievous wrongs imposed on your communities, historically and currently. We honor and respect your commitment to a better and more equitable future for all people through your public service and recognize that continuing to work toward that future is harder some days than others. For us, this is one of the hardest days.

We are not yet doing enough. We commit to continuing to educate ourselves and to ensuring that NTEU Chapter 280 becomes a strong and active anti-racism force within EPA and the broader federal and DMV communities. We welcome your feedback and participation in that effort.

In solidarity, and with best wishes for all of your safety and health,

Amer Al-Mudallal, President
Diane Lynne, Executive Vice President
Andrea Medici, Chief Steward
Allison Hoppe, Senior Vice President

Looting, assault & murder. Better living through Antifa, according to Teen Vogue.

As violence, looting and rioting continue to plague almost every American city, virtue signalling leftist publication Teen Vogue told its readers that the ring leaders of the carnage, Antifa, really just wants to create a better world.

“Antifa grows out of a larger revolutionary politics that aspires toward creating a better world, but the primary motivation is to stop racists from organizing,” a tweet from the publication reads.

Are there times when it is OK to be an asshole? The time and place to be one.

There is a time and a place to be an asshole. That time is not “always” unless you’re as rich, famous, and talented as the late Steve Jobs, who managed to make it work somehow. It’s also not “never,” because there are people in the world that are going to push you to your limits and if you don’t set them straight, you’re going to have a really bad time. It is worth noting that there is a purpose to being an asshole and if it’s not serving that purpose, it’s the wrong time to do it. You don’t behave like an asshole because you feel bad, because you woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning or because your boss yelled at you earlier today and you are looking for someone to take it out on. Being an asshole to someone is a little like hanging them. Do it if you have to do it, but you better make sure that they deserve it.


That's Mr. Asshole to you.

The problem was the ingredients were not organic. Açaí Berry meth just isn't good enough for you.

Police arrested a Colorado man after discovering an unusual methamphetamine lab in his garage. Instead of run-of-the-mill meth, the man claimed to be making a bizarre concoction which he told police was a “healthy” blend of açaí berries and methamphetamine.

According to local news outlet Longmont Times-Call, the man has been identified as 49-year-old Craig William Rogers and he was arrested following a traffic stop by police officers who had been surveilling his address.

US session drummer Jim Gordon, murdered his mother by pounding her head with a hammer. A diagnosed schizophrenic, it was not until his trial in 1984 that he was properly diagnosed. Due to the fact that his attorney was unable to use the insanity defense, Gordon was sentenced to sixteen years-to-life in prison in 1984. A Grammy Award winner for co-writing Layla with Eric Clapton, Gordon worked with The Beach Boys, John Lennon, George Harrison Frank Zappa and many other artists. via thisdayinmusic.com

LOLGF! Posthumous Genius Award Winner.


PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police are investigating a series of ATM explosions after several loud booms were heard throughout Philadelphia overnight. In all, a source tells CBS3 some 30 ATMs were damaged, and a botched attempt left one person dead Tuesday morning.

Chopper 3 was over West Susquehanna Avenue and North 2nd Street in Kensington around 6 a.m. Tuesday. The bomb squad had been called in after an ATM explosion rocked the neighborhood.

Police say a 24-year-old man tried using an explosive device to blow up the ATM by Sidekicks Sports Bar, but when the device went off, he was thrown to the ground with serious injuries. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and died.

Police say the explosive device never penetrated the ATM’s safe. Live explosives were recovered at the scene.

37 George Floyd - C-19+.

Just in case anyone was wondering.

For some reason this makes me recall the point early in The Walking Dead show where they go to CDC and find out that *everyone* is infected.

So racism caused C-19, which killed Floyd, or racism killed him. It gets confusing as an intelligent person living in an idiotic, medieval, dumbed-down culture.

84 It's widely acknowledged by most that I am mildly retarded, strange, foolish, and often drunk.

With that said, I find it strange that this year in successive order we got:

Criminals released from jail.
Businesses forced to abandon their stores.
The wearing of face-hiding masks mainstreamed

And then, of a sudden...

Massive race riots by thuggish individuals breaking into unmanned stores wearing masks that hide their identity.

I'm just f*cking retarded enough to think it's not all a coincidence.

85 Continuing argument with my anarcho-communist, 21-year-old DD, who thinks protests and riots are the same thing. I realized something today, though. If cops are so very eeeeevvvviiiilllll, why are all these people of color turning out by the thousands to places where they know there will be hundreds of cops? Aren't they in fear of their lives? If the cops are so evil, why are we hearing about hundreds of "protesters" hospitalized or dead at the hands of the cops? We aren't hearing that because it's not happening. I asked her about this, and said, this couldn't be because most cops are decent people trying to protect their communities, could it? She changed the subject.

Just the loved the video I saw somewhere today (here maybe?) of some "protesters" blocking a car and one of them subsequently sort of getting run over... and then the "protesters" *immediately* start calling out to the cops to arrest the driver! Apparently we should only abolish the cops after they catch the people who do bad things to *them*? The stupid, it burns... and they can't even see what hypocrites they are.

Telling cops not to shoot but attacking cops.

Demanding justice, ignoring that the cops are all arrested and brought up on charges.

Screaming BLM, but never telling anyone who actually said they don't.

Calling the police racist but never giving any proof.

Posted by: Jordan61 at June 03, 2020 10:18 PM (OzQGF)

116
So, here was my 11:00 hour this morning...

I took Vanessa in to have her shunt checked, because the pressure in head has been too high. Sure enough - it's going to a fifth surgery for a fourth revision tomorrow. AWESOME! Then, at the very moment the doctors were giving me this fantastic news, she had "the problem."

Sometimes when the pressure in her head gets too high, she gets nauseous while eating.

Some of those times, she vomits. Because of her head shape, she will occasionally choke on it.

Very occasionally, she chokes so hard that her little jaw will lock shut, and she can't force enough through her nose, and then just goes limp with terror. This requires CPR, and I've been to that particular rodeo three times, as of this morning.

Now for the disturbing part: this was a multi-disciplinary clinic appointment... I was in a room FULL of doctors. I normally would've started the moment she went limp on me, as I've done twice before, but I stupidly thought "hey, it's a room full of doctors; they'll handle this."

They dithered until she was turning blue in my arms, and then called a fuckin' crash cart. A fucking stupid crash cart, from down the hall. At that point, I just put her on the changing table and did it my fucking self in front of all of them.

The room filled up with ER people, who these people had to inform that the g-ddamn patient's dumb hillbilly daddy had pulled her out of it already.

I mean, I get that these people are surgical specialists, not ER docs, but Jay-zus, they went to medical school, right? I learned this from a 20 minute DVD and maybe an hour of practicing on a doll.

With everything being so crazy, I wondered if there is some type of situational awareness training my husband and I could do. Not exactly self-defense, but how to avoid, escape, or respond to danger.

And if there is such a thing, what is it called?

Thank you!

Posted by: Emmie at June 03, 2020 10:09 PM (clsJu)

=====
Emmie,
I posted the following in the thread where you asked this question earlier today:

Call local indoor gun ranges and ask if they have Defensive Awareness training classes, or a shooting instructor who teaches that to individuals. Or go to the NRA website and look for a list of NRA-Affiliated gun ranges in your area. Contact those ranges and ask if they offer classes or individual training sessions for what you want. An hour or two class will cost at least $75 per person - my guess about that.

Posted by: Gref at June 03, 2020 03:53 PM (AMIL/)

Addendum: I forgot about the InterWebs! Google for indoor gun ranges in your area. If they offer any classes or instruction, they are likely listed someplace on the range's website. Same with websites for NRA-Affiliated Shooting Ranges or Clubs. The Defensive Awareness term is my best guess at what you are looking for is called. Good luck finding what you need.

He gives six handguns five are unloaded one has a live round in the chamber.
He tells her to randomly choose pistols and fire at him.
Would you be willing to be the assistant who shoots at him.
I don't think I would. I know it's a magic act and involves a trick but I wouldn't want to risk shooting a man.

She ends up shooting him but in a small piece of his body which was protected by a piece of metal.
He said he was not predicting which gun she would fire but where she would shoot.

150 The Portland cops have wised up - some of them took a knee at earlier protests, but they apparently figured out that literally bending the knee shows weakness and makes the riots worse.

Last night, at a barricade, an unruly mob claimed that they would peacefully disperse if the riot cops behind the barricade kneeled. The cops didn't, and eventually dispersed the mob with lots of tear gas.

Demanding that cops bend the knee reminds me of the Persian messenger in 300:

I'm more surprised that they just blanked, being medical professionals. When I was ten or so, my 3 year old sister started choking in a restaurant. I'm pretty sure my parents know what to do, and I was a cub scout, so I'd done the training and got the badge, but when it happened, we all just looked at each other like we were trying to agree that it was happening (to be fair, my parents started to do something, but I'm not sure what). Another diner came out of nowhere, did the Heimlich, and then disappeared.

It doesn't matter what you know, if you don't know when to do it is all I can say.

182 Also a few days ago i commented on how all the Anti-Police videos were being pushed by Twitter accounts with K-Pop avatars and unintelligible names.

Last night they started spamming a #WhiteLivesMatter hashtag, in opposition to it, so now they got some news headlines.

The news is reporting it as "K-Pop fans are taking on racists" and the like, but from looking around at the multiple instances of it, and where and what hashtags they kelp surfacing under, it looks like it's a Hacker group or a paid spamming company, those made to boost follower counts. The text and videos they post all seem similar, and the wording in others reads like it is being said by an account you'd more likely see following Jay-Z.

I doubt the news would actually dig in to them, but I'm guessing it's either US Hacker groups, or like all the BLM posts around Ferguson, probably Russians and Chinese trying to help democrats by sowing division in this country.

They were studying the schematics for the Nike Hercules guidance system and they decided the schematics had to be wrong. So they looked up the Federal Stock Number for the guidance system and ordered one to study how it actually worked. Six weeks later this big crate arrives at the Lab. They uncrate it, and there is a complete Nike Hercules Rocket with warhead. Was it a nuke? Nobody wanted touch the damn thing. Needless to say they shipped it back where it came from, while explaining that wasn't quite what they wanted.

Micro chip was destroyed so we could only tell from the break in his tail he had as a kitten. He was only 12 months old and my best little buddy, a awesome, friendly little dude, followed me around like a doggie on the farm. His twin sister Blink and his other doggie sister Billie are crying looking for him. We are buggered and lost right now.

I am worn out. I've been working like a dog the past two days. But I can still do it. Start in the morning and work 'til the sun goes down.

I've been doing what those of my intellectual acumen usually end up doing: digging ditches. I needed to put in a 250'-ish trench in for a feeder from my shop to this pole shed. I needed that for the new well, of course.

So, yesterday I got one of those walk-behind trencher things, B&S powered. This job was about too big for one of those -- a Ditch Bitch would've been easier, but this this one did the job.

And today, I got the USE cable down the trench and covered. Then it was time to get the tiller in the garden. Which I ran until sundown.

And now I'm one worn out SOB.

Well, I don't know about that particular situation. That may have been the same at any routine, scheduled outpatient clinic appointment at any hospital, which is what I find kind of disturbing.

I am getting concerned about the number of revisions... 40% of shunt placements fail in the first year, so it isn't unheard of. But this is getting weird. As soon as it's done, I'm seeking opinions from other doctors, unconnected to this hospital system.

The problem is, this is both by reputation and by the numbers, the best facility in the region. I expect I'll hear "Yeah, it fucking sucks, dude, but that's the way she goes. Bear with it, they'll land it eventually."

208 Someone on the last thread was saying that the Constitution is dead and maybe it is- at least for now we only have the first ammendment if our governors grant it to us. (Thinking of my own emperor Inslee)

But the thing is the rights guaranteed by the Constitution are rights from God, not rights granted to us by human institutions. We still have them even if evil people try to take them away. If that happens we must fight to get them back as best we can.

My opinion on churches for example is that they should have never shut down. They should have set their own guidlines for disease control right from the start rather than have the government dictate to them. Go underground if need be, but don't knuckle under to tyranny. If a church had already done that the Supreme Court decision wouldn't affect them.

Of course civil disobedience can have a price but we've got to be ready to pay it.

I say all this without having been tested yet (except I did make it into Costco without a mask a couple weeks ago, which ain't much in the larger scheme of things.) I am praying that when the necessity for standing up to tyranny arrives my courage won't fail.

210 San Diego's had very limited action. Worst incident was actually mostly a surprise, in a very calm normal suburb (contiguous, eastern border) a few nights back. Pretty clear distinction between protesters, day time, and rioters/hooligans, starting around 8PM. And there was some vandalism and looting downtown, but very limited, and cops never disappeared or bunkered down or kneeled or were particularly stupid about anything.

Mayor's worthless, only value is what's become of the CA "GOP". Less stupid, racist, corrupt, stupid, alien, fascist, stupid, and laughable than the Dems - but beyond that, bupkis. Panders to every increasingly idiotic thing that comes along. Gee, why did the CA GOP disappear??

Last "GOP" mayor ever, or at least for decades, I imagine. So things will get worse after he's out - more corruption, more union theft, more racism, even worse city services (it's a shadow of what it was for decades already).

Every now and then some wise guy would order a major end item "Helicopter, Tactical, 1 ea" just to see how far up the chain it would get. Also had to be careful on the quantities, ordering 5, not 5,000. I still have a coffee can half full of drywall nails. My dad bought this huge box of them in 1971 to refinish the basement. He was not a carpenter, and must have overestimated a tad.

228 I doubt the news would actually dig in to them, but I'm guessing it's
either US Hacker groups, or like all the BLM posts around Ferguson,
probably Russians and Chinese trying to help democrats by sowing
division in this country.


Considering that when the FBI arrested the three white nationalists today, that they rolled up about 1.5% of all of them in the country with that move. Yeah, its probably Chi Com bots.

YD... that sucks donkey balls. Hopefully your baby is OK for the time being now and I will pray hard for her well being. I will also pray the jackass doctors are way better at surgery than they are at CPR.

230 Our nation can still be saved but at this point it will take total brutality and I really don't think you understand the concept of total brutality!

231 So I was walking in a park in a lily white suburb today and some asshole put up a "Black Lives Matter" sign in it. I was tempted to tear the damn thing up, but I thought if there are security cameras or someone around filming me doing that, my life will become hell in no time. "Racist white woman tears down BLM sign! News at 10." Goodbye, any future employment.

So I cursed under my breath and walked on. I suddenly thought to myself that decent people who lived in Nazi Germany must have felt the same when they saw "Jews forbidden!" signs.

232 In happier news, the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board unanimously voted to change their uniform colors from blue to green, but an amendment to change their titles from officer to ranger failed.

233 158 70 Serious question: Has there been any serious looting in cities with Republican mayors? Biggest are San Diego, Jacksonville, Fort Worth, El Paso, and Oklahoma City. Has there been any serious looting for more than one day in city in a state with a Republican governor? St. Louis maybe?

Fort Worth had a big ugly crowd on the 7th Street Bridge, leading to a big commercial district, last Saturday Night, but the police stopped them before they went anywhere. Next night, 8 pm curfew in effect.

Miley's brother, who is working at Bojangles was laughing about a Karen incident they had. They haven't opened the dining room yet, and they've taken this opportunity to do a clean and spruce up, and that's what he's doing, cleaning and sanding and refinishing the tables and chairs.

So some bitch comes in the drive-thru. The kid running the window forgets to give her the receipt. He throws it away. Well, she turns around and gets pissy about it, and then really gets pissed that he has to fish it out of the trashcan.

She calls their corporate HQ, and demands to be comped for her ordeal. Wanted free food for a while. They didn't do it, of course.

Karen indeed.

The purpose of curfews is not to limit looting. Looting is illegal with or without a curfew in place. The purpose of curfews is to limit peaceful protest. The preemptive use of curfews has escalated this situation, endangered the public, and is almost certainly unconstitutional.

243 The local college where I teach P/T sent out a letter that makes the NETU seem like grads from Hillsdale. I actually printed it up just so I could crumple it up and throw it out.
I quit teaching today.

245 It's my understanding that somebody at the "protests" strangled a puppy while livestreaming over the internet.

Think this BS has anything to do with Mr. Floyd's death?

Was Seattle bad last night? The crowd I saw in the early evening looked very white and definitely Antifa scum.
