The Notorious ACB

Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to replace the Cadaverous RBG, as expected. The ‘Splodey-Head Left, in their usual display of class, civility, and decency, between flinging poo right away, surprising no one. Stupidly, even some who claim to be on the Right are playing along too, “asking questions” about her adoption of two Haitian kids—something the vile Left is also poking their own shit-smeared snouts into, albeit from a slightly different direction.

According to Rightie concern trolls, most especially those on the DR, Barrett’s adoption of those two children can only mean she’s a race-traitor and a fraud, a virtue-signalling squish who knuckled under to the Left’s vituperation via the cowardly expedient of glomming onto a couple of ferrin’ pickaninnies purely as a talisman against the Left’s RACIST!!!™ voodoo. That there might be no more to it than an act of generosity and compassion by a decent woman, who was deeply touched by the kids’ plight and wanted to help, is not even remotely possible and therefore not worthy of consideration.

The Insane Left, of course and as usual, know in their bones that it’s Ol’ Blue-Eyed Beezerbub up to his/her old tricks again, just a-colonizin’ and enslavin’ as is his eternal wont. The well-worn Catholic canard, out of favor since JFK, is even being dusted off and polished for use against her.

Meh, let ’em all scream away, as loud and as long as they feel they must. I like her, myself. Sure, she could easily turn out to be another letdown like the Dread Turncoat Roberts has. But we can only hope she won’t, and personally I don’t really expect her to. Among other encouraging things she’s said, this seems pretty typical:

Last year at an event with Hillsdale College, Barrett’s student Stephanie Maloney asked the judge “What role, if any, should faith of a nominee have in the confirmation process?”

Barrett said, “None.”

“I mean, we have a long tradition of religious tolerance in this country. And in fact, the religious test clause in the Constitution makes it unconstitutional to impose a religious test on anyone who holds public office,” the judge explained.

“So whether someone is Catholic or Jewish or Evangelical or Muslim or has no faith at all is irrelevant to the job,” Barrett added.

“I do have one thing that I want to add to that, though. I think when you step back and you think about the debate about whether someone’s religion has any bearing on their fitness for office, it seems to me that the premise of the question is that people of faith would have a uniquely difficult time separating out their moral commitments from their obligation to apply the law. And I think people of faith should reject that premise,” she added.

“All people, of course– well, we hope, most people– have deeply held moral convictions, whether or not they come from faith. People who have no faith, people who are not religious, have deeply held moral convictions,” Barrett noted. “And it’s just as important for those people to be sure– I just spent time talking about the job of a judge being to set aside moral convictions, personal moral convictions, and personal preferences, and follow the law. That’s a challenge for those of faith and for those who have no faith.”

“So I think the public should be absolutely concerned about whether a nominee for judicial office will be willing and able to set aside personal preferences, be they moral, be they political, whatever convictions they are,” Barrett explained. “The public should be concerned about whether a nominee can set those aside in favor of following the law.”

“But that’s not a challenge just for religious people. I mean, that’s a challenge for everyone. And so I think it’s a dangerous road to go down to say that only religious people would not be able to separate out moral convictions from their duty,” she said.

Barrett won’t be perfect, certainly. No matter how good she might be, she’s still bound to come down on the wrong side of the argument once in a while. But as long as the Left continues to hate her with the intensity of a thousand suns, hey, that’ll be plenty good enough for me.

Update! Almost left out an imporant aspect: if confirmed and seated, ACB will break the traditional stranglehold on the Court held by the Yale-Harvard cartel. That can’t be anything but a good thing.

Updated update! Buck Sexton nails it just as clean and tight as I’ve ever seen it done.



Nothing whatsoever to add to that. It says it all.

No deal

Francis on folly.

The political trenches are heavy with commentators who write smart, literate pieces but who are utterly filled with folly. Folly, as Barbara Tuchman once wrote, is knowing better but doing worse. Persons who promote follies typically refuse to heed the lessons of the past. At least, that’s the most common form of folly in politics and political advocacy.

Here’s a sample of current relevance:

One of the big fears that some conservatives have about Republicans doing the simple thing that they were elected to do by confirming a conservative Supreme Court justice is that Democrats would respond by packing the court. As such, they are proposing a “compromise.” The idea, first put forward by Adam White in a thoughtful piece, is that President Trump nominates somebody, but Republicans agree not to vote until after the election (and to not confirm a nominee in a lame-duck session if they lose) as long as Democrats agree to not pack the court. The idea has gained adherents, including David French and Jonah Goldberg.

I don’t know anything about Adam White. I know little more about David French, other than that he’s a foaming-at-the-mouth NeverTrumper. But I followed Goldberg’s essays for some time, and I own one of his books. I have no doubt that he’s a smart fellow, his aversion to President Trump notwithstanding. However, these three persons are united in a folly of monumental dimensions: They believe the Democrats would keep a promise when violating it would be massively favorable to their interests.

The Democrats do not keep promises. The record is quite definite on this subject. Why, therefore, would the GOP’s Senate caucus trust the Democrats to do so in this supremely important matter – a matter the Left has been talking about for years?

Do I hear someone in the back rows nattering about “collegiality?” Where was collegiality during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings? Where was it during impeachment hearings and the Senate trial of President Trump? Where is it today, when prominent Democrats routinely slander President Trump as a dictator and anyone who supports him as either stupid or evil?

Given the open, venomous viciousness of the highest-placed Democrats at this time, why would anyone believe, against the historical evidence, that “this time it will be different?”

Folly, pure and simple.

He couldn’t be more right. From this day forward, Republicans should adhere to one rule first, last, and always: No deals with Democrats. Period, full stop, end of story, and to hell with French, Goldberg, this Smith fellow, and any and all others still foolish enough to believe that the Democrat-Socialists ever, EVER operate “in good faith,” or have any intention of honoring agreements made with them.

When in power, the Demonrats simply run roughshod over their opposition. They ignore reasonable objections; negotiate dishonestly; quash legitimate disagreement; and promote “compromise” with every intention of breaking its terms right from the beginning. No “deal” with them is ever worth the proverbial bucket of warm piss; they consider no oath, covenant, or contract to be binding—for THEM, that is.

At the moment, Trump inarguably has complete Constitutional authority to nominate a replacement for RBG at any time he chooses. Likewise, Senate Republicans are without question empowered to confirm that nominee, by whatever process they deem appropriate, at whatever time they deem expedient. Not one Democrat-Socialist shitweasel can say a word about any of it, either. Or rather, they can say anything they want. Republicans, however, are under no obligation to listen, much less to allow any suggestion and/or complaint from Team Tyranny to influence how matters do or do not proceed.

Democrat-Socialists have for decades wielded power ruthlessly, without the slightest regard for appearances, consequences, or blowback. Their ruthlessness, their faithlessness and megalomania, should now be repaid in full, to the last dram. In the SC fight, as everywhere else, they should be flatly disregarded, any attempt to slither their way into meaningful input beyond the yes-or-no vote the Constitution grants them smacked down with extreme contempt. In all situations, they should be dealt with not as the “partners” they falsely claim to be when they see advantage in it, but as the enemies they truly are.

In a different but still certainly related context, General Flynn’s family pulls no punches.

Abusive, intentional lawless actions committed against the Republic, the President of the United States Donald J Trump and his NSA Director and our brother, General Mike Fynn, by a vile cabal of thugs in the FBI, DOJ, and Special Counsel’s office threatened the national security of our country and all Americans…

The abject abuses of power of the Obama-Biden administration and those who deceived, lied, and conspired to destroy Gen Flynn and violate his rights must be held to account. He has been denied his liberty and freedom for four years. This must end. Judge Sullivan has one obligation. That obligation is to dismiss this case with prejudice, immediately.

The American people deserve to know the truth as to all the misconduct and the dishonest people culpable for their actions. Gen Flynn demands that the Government unredact this exculpatory evidence. It is high time that Barack Obama and Joe Biden be held to account for leading their campaign of injustice against Gen Flynn, the President, the American public, and the Rule of Law.

DAMNED. STRAIGHT. Lots more good stuff between my ellipses; the original is an image file, and my weary old fingers could only transcribe so much before conking out with an agonized creak. But you’ll enjoy reading the whole thing, I promise.

As Sundance so pithily puts it: “The time for diplomatic niceties is over.” And so it is. I repeat: no deals with Democrats. Our side has nothing to gain, and everything to lose, by continuing to pretend that they’re honorable men. As Francis said, that’s folly, pure and simple. No more of it. If crush them we must—and it’s clear that we must—the only thing we need to concern ourselves with now is getting on with the job.

Crunching the numbers

High-larious.

Below is the summary of events since Labor Day. President Trump has now held events with an estimated 187,730 event goers while Biden has entertained an estimated 84 event goers.

There literally may be more Trump supporters protesting Biden events than Biden attendees at his events.

Biden has not entertained a crowd greater than 30 people since Labor Day and probably no crowd greater than 100 since March.

The polls are garbage, the current race is not even close.

Earlier in the piece, Hoft notes:

In the 2016 election we kept track of event attendance after the Party Conventions for both candidate Trump and Crooked Hillary. We did this because the future President was setting records at seemingly every venue he visited while Hillary could barely fill half a high school gymnasium. By mid-August we determined that President Trump had 10 times the number of attendees at his rallies than Hillary did during the same time. This year it’s worse.

By election day 2016 we determined that tens of thousands of more individuals attended Trump events than Hillary events.

The far left mainstream media claimed Hillary was up in the polls. They claimed that rally attendance didn’t matter, but it did. Momentum and enthusiasm mean a lot.

One of the more amusing aspects of the Cadaverous RBG dustup has been the many declarations—including the suspicious and unsupported invocation of the “Gramma’s dying wish” clause in the Constitution—that propriety and precedent both require that there be no consideration of Ginsberg’s replacement “until we have a new president.” Nobody seems to have noticed the problem with that, which I’ll set in the form of a question:

Assuming a bit much there, ain’tcha?

So once again, the Democrat-Socialists and NeverTrumpTards alike are just taking it as read, a rock-solid inevitability, that Trump will not, cannot, win.

Y’know, just like they did in 2016.

But…but…but…MUH POLLS, MUH POLLS!!!

Yeah, how’d that work out for ya LAST time, bright boy?

There is NO—zero, zip, nada—enthusiasm for Biden out there on the hustings, but everybody’s wild about Trump. Search for the feeblest Biden spark as diligently you like, everyplace you like, and you see…nothing. Your search will be in vain.

Boat regattas. Car parades. Biker runs. Speeches. Rallies. Press conferences. At every public appearance Trump makes, all across the country, we have thousands of people who are happy to stand for hours in lines that stretch for miles, literally, just on the off-chance that they MIGHT get in. We have people, hordes of them, camping out for days waiting to get tickets…to a friggin’ political rally.

Meanwhile, on the ever-rarer occasions they can persuade Zombie Joe to rise from his basement crypt—Alive! He’s alive! IT’S ALIIIIVE!!!—and dope his reanimated carcass up enough to prop him at least somewhat convincingly before a microphone, we have…

*crickets*

The enthusiasm that Trump generates is quite simply unprecedented, while enthusiasm for Biden is nowhere to be found. Folks, how can this be anything other than entirely dispositive? If this election is anything remotely resembling fair and honest, Biden will have trouble winning a single state. According to all visible evidence, Biden is well on his way to a drubbing of Mondale-esque proportions here (in 1984, Mondale won an embarrassing 13 electoral votes to Reagan’s 525, the worst election ass-whupping in American history).

Yet somehow, nobody really expects anything other than a hotly-contested election that most likely won’t be settled for weeks, if not months. In fact, there’s a very good chance this thing will end up being decided in the Supreme Court. But if the evidence that voter enthusiasm offers—easily discernible by numerous manifestations that are all right out there in plain sight—is any guide, Biden ought to just go ahead and give the concession speech now, while he still retains the power of speech.

Don’t get cocky? Yeah, yeah, I get that, and the truth is it’s probably sage advice. The Democrat-Socialist fraud machine may yet pull this off. But absolutely everything we can see says otherwise. I ain’t gonna go into what that says about the integrity of our election process, among other things. It speaks for itself, I think.

What the hell, why not update! Speaking of the Gramma’s Dying Wish Clause.

WASHINGTON, D.C.— At a somber ceremony this morning, leading government officials announced that the US Constitution, the oldest surviving national constitution and the founding document of the world’s leading democracy, will be entirely replaced by the last wishes of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“She was a super lady and everybody loved her,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “I think the least we can do to honor her memory is get rid of that musty old Constitution, which I’ll remind you nobody likes anyway, and replace it with the last wishes of Justice Ginsburg, who was much less old and musty than the Constitution and definitely smelled much better, I promise you.”

Among the list of Ginsburg’s wishes that will now make up the governing principles of the nation are the right of all Americans to a nice bowl of soup, the requirement to have all thermostats set to 87 degrees year-round, and unlimited foot rubs with that bunion lotion they sell at the Walgreens.

Now that I’m getting old and decrepit myself, that all sounds pretty damned good to me.

Confirmation of what we all already knew

Bidens busted.

With the release Wednesday of Senator Ron Johnson’s (R-Wis.) long-awaited investigation into the Biden family’s corrupt, possibly criminal, ties to Ukraine and other countries, one thing is clear: Had the information in the report been made public a year ago, it’s nearly impossible to believe Joe Biden would still be the Democratic nominee for president.

The fall of 2019 seems like a lifetime ago, but it’s worth revisiting to give context to this bombshell report.

As the Democratic race for president took shape last year, the media started asking uncomfortable questions. “Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Father’s Campaign?” read the headline of a nearly 11,000-word exposé in the July 2019 issue of The New Yorker.

Other news organizations followed suit. Senate Republicans finally were zoning in on the shady business dealings of their former colleague’s son.

Well, you know the rest of the story. House Democrats successfully changed the subject by manufacturing an impeachment case against President Trump based on the account of a partisan “whistleblower” connected to Biden. The country, once again, was thrown into political chaos.

The Democrats’ gambit worked. They knew Trump would not be convicted by a Republican Senate, but Hunter Biden’s name quickly vanished from the headlines. America’s complicit news media cowered to the mob-like threats of Team Biden and have since kept their mouths shut. Hunter Biden, unscathed, even made a cameo appearance at the virtual Democratic National Convention.

Trump’s impeachment served two purposes: to bury one more scandal under the self-proclaimed “scandal free” Obama Administration and to save Joe Biden’s candidacy. It was straight-up interference with the 2020 election because without the impeachment diversions, it’s very likely that either Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, not Biden, would be on the November ballot right now.

It was straight-up interference with the 2020 election because without the impeachment diversions, it’s very likely that either Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, not Biden, would be on the November ballot right now.

But, as the Democrat-Socialists bring their upcoming election-fraud plans further out into the clear light of day, how much can the identity of the lead puppets in the 202 Election-kabuki really matter? There can no longer be the least doubt about the intention here. Nor should any Real Americans be indulging themselves with soothing dismissals of their chances for successfully pulling this scheme off, either.

Don’t kid yourselves, people: with deadlines for counting (fraudulent) ballots extended recently in some putative toss-up states to as many as six (6!) days after election day, the Demonrats will be “finding” ballots all over the place—in trunks of cars, underneath whorehouse chaise-longues cushions, and tucked securely into the scrotum-pouch of Biden’s skidmarked Underoos—the totting-up continuing until they reach the number needed to “win.” Let’s not overlook just straight-up throwing Trump ballots away, either.

Then, after all the folding, spindling, mutilating, and simply discarding they deem necessary, the Democrat-Socialist election-theft apparatus will happily announce a tremendous, Constitution-saving Biden “victory,” followed by a demand that Trump be bodily expelled from the White House AT ONCE by the US military, to be tried and duly punished for Crimes Against The State The People Democracy. The order will be complied with by the Puzzle Palace with alacrity, an oh-so-somber, frowny-faced “concern” written all across the “honest” faces of the Blue Falcon flag officers “serving” in the Obama Replacement Corps.

Every bit of this hackery, jiggery-pokery, and brazen lawless chicanery enjoying the full-throated endorsement of Leftymedia, of course. Their choked-up, tear-streaked sincerity as these “journalists” report the Fake News with nearly 15% more fairness and impartiality than ever before—thereby saving the country and changing the course of history, just the way they were taught to in their J-school classes—will fairly well make the welkin ring with admiration for their selflessness and “patriotism.”

Such a fulsome realization of the “ethics” of their “noble” “profession,” demanding and uncompromising as those standards are, will surely swell the hearts of their countrymen with awestruck gratitude. Who among them dared to hope that such heroic courage, such dedication, such fierce resolve, might yet abide in their humble midst? O brave new world/That has such people in ‘t!

So let there be no further doubt about what’s coming: the Demonrats ARE GOING to steal this election. Not just “plan to”; not just “try to.” STEAL. IT. Lock, stock, and barrel. Which leaves us with but three things to be decided:

  • IMPORTANT: What, if anything, will Real Americans do about that, assuming there’s a damned thing that CAN be done about it?
  • MORE IMPORTANT: is there any limit or restriction on the actions undertaken in order to stop them?
  • THE WHOLE ENCHILADA: SHOULD there be?

Yep, Real Americans are caught on the horns of the prickliest dilemma this nation has ever faced, with absolutely everything riding on the direction they pick to jump off ’em. No matter what your religious convictions (if any) might be, the option of prayer has never looked like a more rational, realistic choice.

If you’re really interested in further discussion and analysis of the intricacies of Johnson’s and Grassley’s report, you can find some here and here.

Myself, I am emphatically NOT interested. As my post-title up there says, the report is merely formal confirmation of things we all already knew anyway. The election, the effort to hijack it, and the larger and rapidly-escalating conflict with the Left have totally eclipsed it.

Should the election turn out badly, there will be no further thought of addressing the crimes enumerated in the report anyway; it will go straight into the burn-bin of history, a non-event to be burned out of the national memory for all time. So to my mind, whatever relevance is still borne by it lies not in the details or conclusions therein, but entirely and exclusively in its usefulness as a weapon to obliterate not only Biden, but the Democrat-Socialist Party itself.

Democrat rioters gun down two more cops

Mostly-peaceful domestic terrorists.

Two police officers were reportedly shot in Louisville during Wednesday night’s riots.

The crowd scattered after several loud bangs shortly after 8:30 PM.

NBC News later reported that the police department confirmed that two officers had been shot. The officers were reportedly transported to Louisville University Hospital. Fox 43 News also reported that two officers had been shot.

Then there’s this:

And now…

Armed militia members are marching into Louisville.

Oh boy.

Via Anonymous, the militia has been identified as members of the “National Patriotic Defense Team” a right-wing militant group that operates in Kentucky.

A “right-wing militant group.” Hey, ain’t they all? Nary a mention of the violent mob’s political leanings to be seen, natch.

But who the hell cares? Nobody should be either surprised or the least bit bothered by the blatant propagandizing at this late date; libmedia “reporters” are just additional players in the game now. And they’re every bit as much the enemy as the rest of them are.

Good hunting, boys.

“Small masters of not so small betrayals”

Codevilla calls ’em all out.

Understandably, senators such as Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who have made careers of talking conservative while doing their utmost not to displease the ruling class that despises us, don’t want further to energize opposition to their reelection. Hence, they kind of promise to vote “no” now while kind of promising to vote “yes” after the election.

The question before President Trump and McConnell is whether to identify with these small masters of not so small betrayals. If they do, they would discredit themselves and their party. Why should voters believe that, all together, they will do after the election what they have the power to do now but refuse? What is the difference between before the election and after the election?

There is only one difference, namely: to act before an election is to submit one’s actions to immediate judgment by the sovereign people. As you act, you must explain to the voters why it is right to act as you do. The voters then decide on you.

And why would a worthy nominee agree to undergo the certainty of vilification by the Left knowing that, after the election, the newly reelected weak Republicans would be stronger than ever in pressing the concerns of their ruling class donors against Trump, newly a lame-duck, regardless of voters whom they would not have to face for another six years?

Angelo recommends one day of hearings, a total ban on Democrat-Socialist carnival acts and freakshows, and limited floor debate, none of which ought to be considered in any way radical or outrageous. The Repubs hold a majority in the Senate; if they refuse to start acting like it, they won’t for much longer. This is an opportunity for the RINOs to redeem themselves, at least somewhat. If they let it pass them by, it will cost them dearly. And it certainly should.

Happily, though, it looks as if Lindsey v2.0 might be making a most welcome comeback.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday night said his party has enough votes to confirm a new Supreme Court justice before the November election.

“We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg’s replacement before the election,” Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“We’re going to move forward in the committee, we’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election.”

Bold mine, and quite encouraging words they are too. Even better:

Yesterday, Graham sent a letter to his Democratic colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee politely informing them that he’s here to kick a** and chew gum, and he just ran out of gum. Here is a quote from the end of the letter:

“Lastly, after the treatment of Justice Kavanaugh I now have a different view of the judicial-nomination process. Compare the treatment of Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh to that of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, and it’s clear that there is already one set of rules for a Republican president and one set of rules for a Democrat president. I therefore think it is important that we proceed expeditiously to process any nomination made by President Trump to fill this vacancy. I am certain that if the shoe were on the other foot, you would do the same.”

OK then. It’s on.

Good stuff all, to be sure, but now we come to something truly astounding.

The Constitution gives the President the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees. Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the President’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.

Simple, direct, rational, and perfectly reasonable. So who said it?

Better sit down for it, folks. Trust me.

Punch back twice a thousand times as hard

Started to attach this as an update to that first SCOTUS post down below, but it’s just too damned good not to have a post of its very own.

You threaten to riot? You threaten to shut it all down? You show up at McConnell’s house to protest the very night RBG dies? Fine. Do that and I’ll advocate for hardball to be played right back with the ball to be hit directly into your face. You want it, you got it.

It isn’t just last night. This is the accumulation of decades of ever increasing nastiness re: Republican SCOTUS nominations. This is the threats of court packing, this is hearing vileness, this is *gestures* all of it. I didn’t want this game. But I’ll play it to win.

Since we’re going to play this stupidest possible game, then play it as hard as possible. I want the nomination Monday, the vote Tuesday, and the swearing in on Wednesday. Hearings are an insulting joke. Everyone knows how everyone will vote. Just do this thing.

BUT BUT YOUR PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES, I SAY! You know what my main principle is? I don’t give in to threats. I’m done with this pretending that this is about anything other than pure power plays. In the era of the Golden Scalp Weasel came the Great Unmasking.

Since the masks are off, let me take off mine. I am, underneath it all, an utterly cold blooded pragmatist. I loathe to my DNA that SCOTUS is now most powerful. But it is. That’s not changing. And thus I want that power to be on my side as much as possible.

If that means ramming a vote through as hard and fast as possible, so be it. So be it. I screamed my throat raw and typed my fingers bloody for decades telling everyone not to get to this point. I lost that argument. I lost that argument entirely. Will to power it is then.

I am, by the by, fully aware of what will happen when the roles are reversed. How can I not be? It’s been laid bare for years. I am doing my enemies, and it is clear now they are not opponents, the favor of taking them seriously. I’m just using the power they want first.

Since this is the game that will be played, play it we shall. And play it to win.

A hearty a-friggin’-MEN to every single word. I have but one caveat: Team Liberty should not consider for one moment leaving ANY tactic, weapon, or dirty trick off the table or out of bounds in this war—a principle which applies both to the SCOTUS skirmish specifically and to the wider war. For war it most certainly is; like it or not, there is no longer any shying from it. Frankly, I doubt there ever really was. There is but one way forward for us now: straight the fuck through their asses.

No, we didn’t want war; we didn’t want any of this. But it has been pressed upon us nonetheless, by a dead-serious, committed, and truly dangerous enemy that has only been emboldened by our reluctance to engage them—that being a product not of cowardice or weakness as our enemies delude themselves, but of nothing more than basic human decency and sanity.

And if there’s one lesson we all ought to have gleaned from so many decades of futile, bootless “police actions,” “liberations,” and “nation building,” then it’s a simple one, and here t’is: if it’s war we must wage, then we must fight to win. MUST. Our guiding ethic in this can only be war to the knife, knife to the hilt. No holds barred, no quarter asked or given, no stopping or easing off until our enemies are well and truly vanquished.

When the dust has settled, they must know that they’ve been kissed, as the old saying goes. Should there be the slightest question about that after all is said and done, then we didn’t do it correctly…and will only have to repeat the whole dismal process all over again, until we finally get it right. Which is something we really, REALLY don’t want.

Call to arms: STOP THE STEAL

Roger Stone responds to shitlib outrage over the Alex Jones interview I mentioned the other night—with both barrels, right square into their pinched, smarmy faces.

And it is BEAUTIFUL.

Before Trump blew their minds with his unprecedented annihilation of their pompous, lazy, treacherous, and epically corrupt nominee, numerous well-known Democrats (along with a number of now-obsolete never-Trumper RINO’s) made sure to add their smirking little sureties to that epically-smug, soon-to-be-humiliated-beyond-belief chorus of know-it-all blowhard pundits and overexposed celebrity big mouths who assured the world, with metaphysical certitude, that Donald Trump would NEVER(!) be president.

Little did they know what was about to happen. But now they do know, and are surely prepared to do anything to make themselves right this time.

Which brings us to the Democrats’ other insufferable speech-slurring female windbag, cult leader and perpetual political parasite – Pelosi, Nancy. One each (thank God). Madame (Speaker) and countless other Democrat seditionists, socialists and communists have repeatedly made demagogic statements to the effect that Trump will “not be re-elected… NO MATTER WHAT”.

Aside from their nearly four years of deceitful partisan machinations, phony investigations, and the repugnant Adam Schiff as their implementer of nonstop war against the president and his allies, their constant bleating that Trump would be removed from office, one way or another, was certainly not idle. Just like their counterfeit impeachment, they were blatantly admitting up front that they would stop at nothing, that no public interest or duty was too sacred, to toss aside in the cause of vanquishing our President.

Further proof of this destructive seditious insanity they are intent on inflicting on the country is the astonishing statement by an increasingly mentally-unstable Hillary Clinton, almost insisting that Joe Biden must not and can never concede “under any circumstances”, presumably to include even Trump’s winning the election by a landslide or really any result that re-elects the president. This psychopath could not restrain her seething vengeful mania and intent to  burn down the country and end the American Republic than permit Donald Trump’s re-election. Given this type of extremist rhetoric (from some of the most ruthless criminals the world has ever known) a few million fraudulent ballots is child’s play.

It is clear from their own big mouths that the only thing the Democrats have not lied about is their intent to perpetrate an unprecedented fraud upon the American people and that they will never accept a democratically-derived decision by the American people, if it results in Donald Trump’s re-election as president.

This is why we must not only be prepared for what happens on election day, but also do everything we can between now and November 3rd to protect the integrity of our elections and STOP THE STEAL.

It’s a long ‘un, it’s as righteous a blast of full-bore truth as I’ve ever beheld, and trust me, you are going to love it. Bravo to you, Mr Stone.

The “Cause” election

The price of having allowed them to make their old “the personal is political” slogan a reality.

Politics used to be about things like tax cuts. When politics was about tax cuts and subsidies and spending on projects and putting a stop sign at the end of the street, Americans could bear to get a little more or a little less from election to election. An election result could be disappointing. But it was not catastrophic. Quality of life is very important to Americans. But quality of life is not all-important. Americans will argue with each other over quality-of-life issues. But they will not kill each other over them. Settling things like tax cuts through elections worked out just fine.

But politics is not about things like tax cuts anymore. Now politics is all about causes. Causes like Black Lives Matter. Causes like LGBTQ+. Causes like Climate Change. Causes like Defunding the Police. Causes like Systemic Racism, and Open Borders, and Reproductive Rights, and Trans Rights, and Dismantling the Cis-Normative Patriarchy. And on. And on.

You cannot settle causes like these by vote. For one thing, they are indivisibles. They will not bear compromise. To suggest compromise may be considered a form of “violence.” Nor may you watch, in silence, as the issues unfold — for silence, too, may be considered a form of “violence.” Besides, many of the issues are simply unsolvable. Politics has no answer to them.

Which leads to the larger reason causes like these cannot be settled by vote: Causes like these bear too great a resemblance to religion — the nature of man, his original sin, his fallenness, and his salvation from it. Politics cannot settle disputes over dogma. They are neither soluble nor dissoluble.

Another thing that can’t be settled by elections is the fundamental conflict between tyranny and liberty. In fact, that’s the main issue in this election, as it will be in every other one going forward (if any), until the Left is utterly and permanently annihilated.

Tell it like it is

I’m loving this one, too.

Roger Stone Calls for Trump to Declare Martial Law If He Loses
Pardoned Roger Stone is making extraordinary calls for President Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act if he loses on Election Day.

“I don’t want to overplay the facts here, but if somebody would study the president’s authority in the Insurrection Act and his ability to impose Martial Law if there’s widespread [fraud], if he will have the ability to arrest [Facebook founder Mark] Zuckerberg, to arrest [Apple CEO] Tim Cook, to arrest the Clintons, to arrest anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity,” Stone, political trickster, told Alex Jones’ “InfoWars” on Thursday.

Curiously, there’s a link embedded in the “Alex Jones” portion of the above text that, for some odd reason, goes to Media Matters instead. As one would expect, the MM drivel copiously moans and kvetches that the VERY IDEA of widespread Democrat-Riot Party election fraud—a practice they’ve diligently, consistently pursued since Tammany Hall, if not before—is a “baseless accusation,” “entirely unfounded,” a “conspiracy theory” which “would likely intimidate potential Joe Biden voters.”

Snort. I can think of a thousand and one much better ways to “intimidate” them, bitch. Including a few, shall we say, permanent ones. Anyways.

“There’s going to be widespread, obvious, blatant, flagrant illegality,” Stone continued. “The authority exists to stop that. It will have to be used, if necessary.

“I do not advocate preventive detention, but people who commit crimes and think they can continue to get away with it, because we have a two-tiered justice, are just wrong.”

“This is not complicated and it is 100% legal,” Stone concluded.

“Force will have to be met with force. That’s the way this is going to have to work. It’s really unfortunate. I’m not an advocate of that. I’d like to have an honest election in which the real winner takes office. The real winner will not be Joe Biden. There is too much voter fraud already going on in Florida and Nevada.”

Correct in every particular. But it’ll be the “force met with force” part that will really resonate before all is said and done, I’m afraid.

Via Bill, who laments that “Trump won’t do it,” and I’m afraid he’s all too right also.

Theft in broad daylight

The coup, out in the open and bare-ass naked.

I know you guys are growing ever weary of discussing the Chinese coronavirus. It is maddening that there is so much curiously contradictory information out there. There are still so many other reasons to remain peeved, including the obvious abuse of children and the psychological and potentially irreversible damage being inflicted upon them (and us). But as the Great Prophet Mark Steyn warned us on the Rush Limbaugh Show yesterday, you have to view the current Covid machinations as a very useful tool for the left to use against President Trump as we inch closer to the American presidential election.

The relentless slander against President Trump, the ongoing riots and violence in Democratic-run cities, the lies the media tells you about the violence (“mostly peaceful”), and a veritable Home Depot of other tools are all an integral part of their “flu d’état” planning.

We are being primed for the theft. Primed for theft by the left. Friends, when the left tells you who they are and what they are going to do, you had better well listen. It’s time for our side to take off the gross, ridiculous surgical gloves, rip off the mandated masks and revert back to common sense on all fronts – to take charge of our own lives, our own families and our own risk assessments, government fiats be damned.

I’m afraid we’re well past the point where it will do much good; it definitely isn’t going to stop them. The COVID ruse was only the beginning; we’re playing in a much bigger arena now. The coup plotters have gone past the point of exposing themselves and are now just waving their schlongs at us openly.

Schlesinger asked an insane question to Piketty at one point in the segment: “Do you believe that the pandemic presents an opportunity here?” Piketty then gave the cringe response: “What we see from history is that crises like pandemics are sometimes necessary, unfortunately in a way, to deliver big political change or ideological change.” Piketty then hedged himself by saying, “but we should not just count on crises to get very bad so that after crises, you know, things will get better. Because in practice, crises can also deliver political monsters as we’ve seen, after World War I in Europe.”

Sounds eerily familiar to when George Soros told an Italian newspaper that the pandemic was providing a “revolutionary moment.”

Gee, there’s that name again. Sheer coincidence, I’m sure.

Piketty exploited the coronavirus to attack capitalism: “The pandemic illustrates, you know, I think, the need to change the economic system and to get in the direction of a more equal and more equitable and more sustainable model of economic development.” Schlesinger never mentioned anything about how Piketty’s work on income inequality has been repeatedly chastised for flawed arguments.

No surprise there; the guy IS a shitlib, after all, his entire worldview is flawed. As I’ve mentioned before, though: with so many people chalking this talk up to Democrat-Socialist “desperation,” am I the only one out there to whom it looks and feels a bit more like supreme confidence? Hubris, even?

In any event, what all this is leading up to couldn’t be clearer.

This isn’t normal campaign rhetoric, and it belies a feverish mindset on the left going into November that any outcome except a Biden win—by any means necessary—won’t be legitimate. That’s why Hillary Clinton has publicly urged Biden not to concede “under any circumstances.”

Indeed, paranoia and an assumption that any action by the Trump administration to ensure the integrity of the election is tantamount to stealing it pervades our elite class. The Transition Integrity Project’s war games played out various scenarios, utterly divorced from reality, in which team Trump “succeeded in invoking the Insurrection Act and sending active-duty military troops into US cities to ‘restore order,’ ‘protect’ voting places, or confiscate ‘fraudulent’ ballots.” In another scenario, Attorney General Bill Barr ordered “the seizure of mail-in ballots to ensure that vote counting would stop.”

All this tells us much more about the mindset of the people running the simulations than it does about what Barr or Trump are likely to do in November. The left simply cannot imagine an election in which Trump doesn’t win by cheating, hence they’ve decided they will accept only one outcome. Rahna Epting, executive director of MoveOn and a participant in the Fight Back Table discussions, told The Daily Beast, “It is very obvious that Trump is laying the groundwork for claiming victory no matter what.”

This is doublespeak. What should be obvious by now is that a broad coalition of left-wing groups is laying the groundwork to reject the results of the November election if Trump wins and claim victory, no matter what. The same left-wing groups that have been fomenting riots and street violence for months will again mobilize, only this time they won’t be calling for the abolishment of the police but the effective abolishment of popular government—an end to our constitutional system, and with it, an end to the republic.

Alas, this kind of electoral hostage-taking isn’t new. In the months before the 1860 election, southern leaders and newspapers warned in explicit terms that electing Lincoln would mean disunion, perhaps even war. “Let the consequences be what they may—whether the Potomac is crimsoned in human gore, and Pennsylvania Avenue is paved ten fathoms deep with mangled bodies,” declared one Georgia newspaper. “The South will never submit to such humiliation and degradation as the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln.”

Most northerners thought this was just bluster, that Lincoln’s election would never lead to actual war and bloodshed. They badly underestimated how lightly the South regarded the Union, and what southerners would do to the country to be rid of it. They should have taken the South at its word.

Now, 160 years later, we face what could be a similar crisis. There’s a rich irony in the elite assumption that post-election violence will come from “right-wing militias” or “vigilante groups,” when the last three months of rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists have in some ways been a dress rehearsal for what the left is planning in November. You don’t need to read between the lines to understand this, you just need to take these people at their word.

Large as the coup-specific issues loom, the big picture still dwarfs ’em.

The Democratic Party with its deep state auxiliaries begins to look like a monstrous hybrid of Matt Taibbi’s fabled Vampire Squid and the skulking Kraken of the maelstrom, devouring the innards of our republic in its deep, dark depths one institution at a time while a storm rages on the surface and citizen’s eyelids flutter in horror, frozen like sleepers in the paralysis of a nightmare, at the rising havoc and ruin. Or, to put it plainly: what the fuck is going on in America?

Ongoing sedition is the answer, with fetid slime trails across the political landscape everywhere you look. We’re informed hours ago, for instance, that the top lawyers in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel operation wiped all the records from their cell phones before the DOJ Inspector General could collect evidence of their communications from the SC team’s three-year exercise in overthrowing a president. How is that not an obstruction of justice, and who will answer for it?

And now, like a fever building to climax, comes the news right out-front that the Democratic Party intends to foment insurrection if the election goes against them. They’re supporting the coming siege of Lafayette Square set to kick off fifty days of “protest” across from the White House beginning Sept 17 as a warm-up for anarchy in the streets across the nation following the Nov 3 vote. Behind us is the summer of riots, arson, and looting, and who paid to support all that? Who paid for flying Antifa and BLM personnel from city to city, feeding and housing them, paying for their “commercial-grade” fireworks, pallets of bricks, gas masks, lasers, bullhorns, black riot outfits? Why is it hard to find out who bought the plane tickets, booked the hotels?  Months have gone by since all that started. Is someone in the DOJ following the money? And following their communications (especially considering the crimes against property they’ve committed)?

Why is Christopher Wray still director of the FBI? Why is Bruce Ohr still collecting a paycheck from the DOJ? Why is Eric Ciaramella still keeping a seat warm at the CIA? What exactly was US Attorney John Huber doing for two years? Why is Mark Esper still running the Pentagon? Why is General James Mattis not facing a military court of inquiry for proposing a coup against the president? Why is Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan still defying the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case against General Flynn? Why is it taking years to resolve the legal issues around Julian Assange while he rots in jail? Where exactly does William Barr stand with all this? And is it possible that John Durham’s efforts to unravel the giant hairball of sedition begins-and-ends with one lame guilty plea of petty fall-guy Kevin Clinesmith?

It may sound paranoid, but I feel compelled to ask: is Barack Obama running some kind of shadow government from his Kalorama fortress —that is, issuing suggestions (or instructions) to scores of loyal high officials in federal agencies for opposing and undermining everything the current president attempts to do — such as Mr. Trump’s executive order this week to cease and desist the depraved “critical race theory” and “white privilege” struggle sessions run all over DC by obscenely highly-paid “diversity-and-inclusion” consultants? And what role is Hillary Clinton playing behind-the-scenes these pre-election days, since her foundation is so heavily invested in the DNC, and she is issuing directives on subverting the election through a complicit news media?

How on earth can responsible adults pretend that the empty shell of Joe Biden is a plausible candidate for president? What will Joe do in the two scheduled debates without his teleprompter or an earpiece? He can’t possibly perform without them (and barely even with them, it appears lately). When was the last time Joe Biden took impromptu questions from reporters? When has he stood before a crowd of actual voters, not live-action-role-players picked by his handlers? Who is trying to hustle the USA out of existence and what are you going to do to stop them?

That’s the biggest question of them all, innit? One thing’s for sure: the later we wait to stop them, the more difficult, painful, and messy it’s going to be. But stop them we surely must, at any and all cost.

And hey presto!, with that we have ourselves another new entrant into the bookmarks and Ye Olde Blogrolle, all thanks to Bill, via whom etc.

Electoral College: why it matters is also why they hate it

The latest installment of Wilder’s CW Weather Report is up, and as usual with John’s stuff it’s a toughie to excerpt without doing real violence to the whole thing; the way he weaves seemingly disparate or unrelated concepts together into a cohesive whole makes collecting bits and bites of it…well, tricky, shall we say. But I just gotta make the attempt with this one anyway.

I firmly believe the United States has had stolen elections in the past. But the nice thing about the Electoral College is? It makes it really, really hard to steal an election. Impossible? No. Hard? Yes.

Every single person in every graveyard in Chicago, California, and Queens can vote for a Democrat, and it doesn’t matter. The Electoral College adds legitimacy to an election by breaking corruption at the state lines. That’s one reason the Left hates it. It makes elections hard to steal. In my state, my vote doesn’t really matter – my state will go for Trump even if every person in every grave, ever, votes Democrat.

Mail-in voting changes all of that.

It’s hard to cheat in a Red State. You have to steal zillions of counties. It’s easy to cheat in a Blue State – you just have to cheat in the big cities. If everyone in Chicago voted Trump, Illinois would still go 60% for whatever Democrat was opposing him. But with mail-in voting?

Examples I have seen show the party on the outside of the envelope.  How hard would it be to casually “lose” a few thousand votes from envelopes that had a big, fat, R on the outside? Or a few thousand from precincts that consistently vote Right? Not hard at all. This is on top of demonstrated voter fraud in Left cities where poll workers were caught on camera dumping ballot after ballot into the box on election day.

If mail-in voting passes? We’ve had our last election day. From now on? It’s selection day – selection of the candidate that the Left wants.

There’s more, he’s dead right, and you must read it all.

So 13 percent of the population wants to start a “race war” against 70 percent of it?

I don’t think they’ve thought this thing all the way through.

Low intelligence, poor impulse control, defective future orientation, emotionalism, difficulty with abstractions. So say psychologists who study racial differences. The literature is voluminous, though suppressed. (The predictable assertion that these scientists, nearly all white, are racist is belied by their consistent finding that Ashkenazi Jews are at the top in intelligence, followed by East Asians, then whites. Racists do not establish the inferiority of their own race.)

These traits, plus poor understanding of the world beyond their visual field, and difficulty with abstract reasoning perfectly explain the senseless murders, the periodic yet unceasing riots and burning of cities, usually of their own neighborhoods and stores. Watts in 1965, much of the country in 1968, LA in1992, more recently Baltimore, Ferguson, Minneapolis. They explain the young black woman on network television sobbing that she is afraid to leave her house because the police might kill her, the black man roaring that he is tired, tired, tired of the police hunting down blacks to kill them. The absurdity of the first claim, the fact that blacks kill far more of each other than whites do, do not occur to an emotional, poorly informed and innumerate people.

Many students of black behavior have concluded that it is innate—genetic, as we say. This thought is of course verboten, an ender of careers, so many who know of it remain very quiet, as do the millions who have long suspected it. Liberals also seem to suspect it as otherwise they would say “Let’s study the matter carefully and find out.” Fairly obviously they fear what they might find, so instead they shy away from the questions in something resembling terror. In human affairs, questions avoided are questions likely to have the wrong answers.

If blacks as a race (there always being degrees and exceptions) cannot fit into a modern society, as seems to be the case, what now? It will be pointed out that blacks are decent people when not enraged or impulsive, that they are emotionally warmer than whites, immensely talented in music and acting, that they are human beings and should not be forced by circumstance to live in grim ghettos, that some are highly intelligent. All true. It can also be pointed out that many of my age grew up listening to the Platters, James Brown, the Supremes, to bebop and doowop and later Coltrane and Davis and so on at endless length, and that is somehow disagreeably ungrateful to think of their race as incompatible with mainline civilization. True…uncomfortably true.

But the killings, the crime, the arson never stop.

Whatever the answer might be, what we are doing now isn’t it.

Probably the single worst thing that could ever happen to them would be for them to get what they claim to want.

Battlespace preparation

We didn’t so much finally find a hill to die on as that it punched us right in the face.

Let’s look at the scenarios the Washington Post article presented to understand that theirs was not so much a theoretical exercise as it was a roadmap for insurrection, a rally cry to the leftists burning down Seattle, Portland, Kenosha and any other city they can target before the election. First they gave us four possible scenarios A Biden Landslide, A narrow Biden win, but with electoral and popular vote victories, a narrow Trump win, but with a large popular vote loss and a period of uncertainty after the election.

Not once did they even play out the possibility of a Trump landslide, because then they would have to admit that riots in the street would also take place given that eventuality. It is more what they don’t say than what they do, that matters. 

The crisis they see coming is the use of the Insurrection Act by Trump to “teach these anti-American terrorists a lesson.” Not to quell violent unrest by Biden voters that will not accept the outcome of the election, as played out when Hillary lost and continues to this day, but some invention of Donald Trump’s imagination, fear and hatred. (Notice that all of those playing out the Trump side were hostile anti-Trumpers.) The Washington Post is building into the narrative the purpose and excuse for their insurrection, nothing less. After the Donald Trump landslide and if it is not it will be a result of cheating and intimidation by Biden voters, they plan to take the streets, perhaps even drag Trump out of the White House, perhaps with Deep State cover from the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Every indication I’m seeing for a Trump victory is much greater than it was in 2016. The polls, even heavily weighted to the Democrats, are showing Trump much closer to Biden than he was to Hillary. He will probably still win, but not by the amount he would in a stand up election. The riots have influenced a lot of people who won’t claim support for Trump, but will nonetheless vote for him on election day.

The riots after election day, with cover from the media, will lead to insurrection and all of us will be on the front line in one way or another. You have trained, stock-piled and while it was hard to tell what for a lot of the time, this is what for. This is the hill to die on, not because of Trump himself, but because the communists want it bad enough to kill you in broad daylight for it. They will kill your whole family if they can, before they take power or after. It is only the preparedness and coolness of head that Kyle Rittenhouse showed that will bring us through it. Some of us won’t make it. But, what better reason to die than defending your families and your freedom? I can think of none.

All of them, from the rioters and looters to the MFM to the Democrat-Socialist-Riot Party itself, is telling us openly and in plain language what they intend to do. It’s time we started taking them at their word, and taking their words seriously. As for the WaPo “war game” article mentioned by TL, David Harsanyi examines it more closely.

In their “war game” scenarios, however, it’s the Democrats who refuse to accept the will of courts to adhere to the constitutionally prescribed system rather than hysteria, and it’s the Democrats who wishcast the wholly imaginary “popular vote” into existence.

One of the scenarios, we learn, “doesn’t look that different from 2016” — a contest in which, it must be pointed out, not one vote has been proven to be uncounted or altered. In that outcome, America is confronted with “a big popular win for Mr. Biden, and a narrow electoral defeat.” In the real world, incidentally, that scenario is called a “Trump victory.”

In the fictional war game, however, John Podesta, playing the role of Biden, contends that his party won’t let him concede the race and instead alleges “voter suppression” — the catchall go-to every time a Democrat loses — and persuades the Democratic governors of Trump-won states such as Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

In the meantime, California, Oregon and Washington threaten to secede from the union if Trump takes office. The Democratic House unilaterally names Biden president. “At that point in the scenario,” the New York Times’ Ben Smith explains, “the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.”

This scenario is what a real-life “coup” might resemble. It is, needless to say, utterly insane that Democrats would destroy the nation’s longstanding and peaceful transition because they refuse to accept the mandated process of electing the president. All of which is to say the proactive — and retroactive — delegitimization of the Trump presidency has been a successful four-year project.

Well, for them it has, I suppose. But for sensible, sane people, all they’ve really done is destroy their own credibility and harden his supporters’ hearts against them. It seems a Pyrrhic victory at best, one that might just turn around and bite them on the ass before long.

NEVER underestimate the enemy

It’s always and forever a mistake. If you don’t believe that, ask the Left; they’ve been doing it with Trump from the very beginning, to their eternal frustration and great cost.

Antifa tactical units are organized into standard ‘company structure’ of up to 20 individual soldiers under the immediate control of a comany commander. While there are ‘special units’, most notable the ‘reconnaissance & coordination’ teams of bicyclists, the base of the C&C structure for Antifa is the company.

Company commanders are ‘first lieutenants’ and may be idenfied in the field by their actions within the group, and frequently by possession of DX SDR units of some form. These ‘duplex (send/receive) software defined radio’ units will be small, and most probably attached to a smart phone. It is through the SDR’s that the encrypted commands are passed to operational units. On arrest, 1st Lieutenants have been observed disarding their identifying equipment as well as destroying their phones.First Lieutenants can also be identified as being the local hub for bicycle traffic. In observations of rioting/looting activity, particularly with long distance videos of qualtity, bicyclists can cleary be seen reporting to 1st Lieutenants & even seeking them out in the mob. For this activity, bicyclists have been noted to employ ‘proximate apps’ to locate their units & commanders.

The Anitfa field orgnaization has up to 4 companies reporting to a ‘captain (coordinator)’. Antifa Captians may be identified by common actions & equipment. Captains are ‘free floating’ within the mob movement, but will always be associated with increased bicycle traffic as well as ’emblems’ of authority/command. These emblems include sepcific types & shapes of video camera gear. Antifa soldiers are trained to center on the emblems of both 1st Lieutentant as well as Captains. Some of the Captains have been observed pulling their command together by holding up the long lens video camera overhead while running a pattern of flashes from the light bars. These are swept around the mob & new organization results.

Most of them may be doot-brained pussies just out LARPing as soldiers—disorganized, cowardly, and easily scattered at the slightest sign of opposition. But many of them are not, not at all. More of this truly must-read S2 material at the link, all of it interesting, indeed essential stuff. But the most fascinating part of all, for me at least, comes in at the end:

The structure of Antifa in the field most closely resembles the ‘color’ revolutions created by the CIA. The tactics employed so far in these Antifa field actions have very simiular targets & tactics as was observed as far back in time as the Viet Nam conflict, and in other arenas in which the CIA created wars and destabilized regimes.

While this is the end of this report on the Antifa C&C structure, it is worth noting that, in the observations taken from video footage, there is a suggestion of an ‘Unknown Actor’ (UA) within the activites involved in the looting. This UA is, like Antifa, organized, and can have many operatives within the mob at any given point. This UA does not appear to be engaging in escalation, rather appears to be most focused on ‘tagging’ the Antifa, with the presumed goal of identifying active members. These ‘tagging’ incidents have been observed employing very sophisticated UV light reflective paint ‘dots’ and ‘lines’ being placed on individual Antifa by UA agents using what appears to be a ‘nylon tipped marker’. Several of these markers with no product identifying marks have been recovered in debris following looting episodes. Also in one instance, a small bag of magnetic field reflective ‘dots’ of self-adhesive vinyl was also recovered. It is assumed that UA is using these as trace & track methods for their own purposes. The UA agents are exceptionally well trained and disciplined, exhibiting awareness of video activity sufficient to allow these agents to not yet be identified.

HMMMMM. Might these “unknown actors” actually be FBI or DHS, perhaps? Or dare we hope that this is some sort of militia/Threeper countersurveillance op, providing intel on where these twerps reside, their patterns of movement, contacts, etc for use when the time is ripe for action?

Years ago I attended Cousin Regbo’s change of command ceremony at NAS Norfolk, when he took over the Navy’s venerable Rampager squadron, VFA 83. One of many things I well remember from that most memorable of nights is a conversation at the O-Club after-party where the band played, between a crusty old Marine lifer and a gawky, still-soaking-wet butterbar. The Marine, gruffly chomping out sea-stories around a fat stogie to the enraptured (and endrunkened) audience at our table, was asked by this uncut youngster just what section it was he worked for.

“Little thing called Logistics, son,” he proudly purred, the sly grin of a hungry tiger beginning to widen as he anticipated dropping the hammer on another easy meal.

The LT, who seemed to be a fighter-jock hopeful himself, was not overly impressed by this admission, not in the least. He almost seemed to think that an apology might even be called for, for the old leatherneck having had the gall to tell tales of derring-do—doubtless all heavily embellished, if not outright fabrications conjured from behind the rear-area desk he must certainly have spent his entire career cowering behind.

LT Green’s evident skepticism led the Captain, clearly expecting such callow ignorance of all military history, to lean back and wax philosophical. “Wars, all wars, are won and lost not by you handsome flyboys streaking around way up above the battlefield in them fancy aeroplanes of yours, dropping bombs on real warfighters’ heads. They’ve always and forever been won by two things and two things alone: Intel, and Logistics.”

As our current conflict intensifies and escalates, it might come in useful for everyone to keep that old jarhead’s wisdom firmly in mind. One hopes that the LT, wherever he may be now, did.

Lots more needful things at Scout’s place from Bracken, too.

Reality check update! A former Marine confirms the lesson.

In all the training that I’ve been through (in) my life, I’ve never been in one where in the first five seconds of the scenario you’re blinded with a strobe light and sprayed with pepper spray…. That changes everything. They were throwing these rocks from 15 feet back in the crowd, you couldn’t see who the fuck through it, etc. things like that…It’s just a good talking point for guys that carry concealed, but you need to think through all these different scenarios.

It got way worse after that video ended, they chased us for 11 city blocks. They had a convoy of about 25 vehicles that cut us off at the next intersection, They had scouts on the corner with radios, they had a drone following us, they had a bull horn calling us Nazis, and the crowd was following a red strobe light that was up in the air on a stick, so they would announce Nazis and then people would follow the red strobe light, That video is just the beginning, I’ve got a fucking fractured hand from a baton, everyone of us has black and blue bruises up and down their legs and back, I had a guy spit in my face from 6 inches away, call me a pussy and a coward for not doing anything about it, and then tell me that he was going to find where I live, rape my mother, rape my children in front of me and then kill me.

I’ve never been more angry about something in my fucking life, the level of restraint that it took for us to not fight back in any capacity whether that was with a gun or fists is incredible. All of us have kids at home. The only thing going through all of our minds was we have to be able to justify deadly force if we’re going to go that route, there’s also hundreds of these people, we can’t see straight because of all the pepper spray, and it’s hard to PID exactly who is throwing these rocks and hitting us with batons, because they would hit you and fucking run and their buddy would run up and hit you. It was an incredibly stressful situation, they did a very good job tactically of taking away your situational awareness, and in my opinion complicating your legal defense when you split one of their faces open with a hollow point.

The certain fact that you WILL be arrested and prosecuted vigorously for daring to defend yourself during one of these gang attacks—while your attackers skate away scot free, to do it all again to somebody else the next night—might be the most offensive aspect of all.

But this guy’s story underscores Ol’ Remus’ oft-repeated rule: stay away from crowds. The miserable worms of PantiFa ain’t all punks and creampuffs. And even punks and creampuffs are perfectly capable of inflicting some serious damage if they can cut you out and then dogpile you. It’s awfully hard to exfil unscathed from a no-win tactical situation like that, no matter how tough or well-trained you might be.

The coup is coming here

Michael Anton is on a real tear of late.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

He briefly outlines the treasonous, anti-American actions and statements from a pantload of treacherous Obama-appointed military nabobs, then:

All this enthused Joe Biden, who threw subtlety to the winds. The former United States Senator (for 26 years) and Vice President (for eight) has not once, not twice, but thrice confidently asserted that the military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. Another former Vice President, Al Gore, publicly agreed.

One might dismiss such comments as the ravings of a dementia patient and a has-been who never got over his own electoral loss. But before you do, consider also this. Over the summer a story was deliberately leaked to the press of a meeting at which 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks got together (on George Soros’s dime) to “game out” various outcomes of the 2020 election. One such outcome was a clear Trump win. In that eventuality, former Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, playing Biden, refused to concede, pressured states that Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote, and trusted that the military would take care of the rest.

Gee, curious how the name Soros just keeps popping up, innit?

These items are, to repeat, merely a short but representative list of what Byron York recently labeled “coup porn.” York seems to think this is just harmless fantasizing on the part of the ruling class and its Democratic servants. For some of them, no doubt that’s true. But for all of them? I’m not so sure.

Remember that phrase from the Dem war game: “street fight.” In other words, a repeat of this summer, only much, much bigger. Crank the propaganda to ear-drum shattering decibels and fill the streets of every major city with “protesters.” Shut down the country and allow only one message to be heard: “Trump must go.”

I.e., what’s come to be known as a “color revolution,” the exact same playbook the American deep state runs in other countries whose leadership they don’t like and is currently running in Belarus. Oust a leader—even an elected one—through agitation and call it “democracy.”

The events of the last few months may be interpreted as an attempted color revolution that failed to gain enough steam, or as a trial run for the fall. Is the Trump Administration prepared?

Anton has a few suggestions to make regarding said preparation, one of which I really hadn’t much considered:

They also need to set up or shore up—now—communication channels that don’t rely on the media or Big Tech. Once the ruling class gives word that the narrative is “Trump lost,” all the president’s social media accounts will be suspended. The T.V. channels, with the likely exception of Fox News, will refuse to cover anything he says. Count on it. He’s going to need a way to talk to the American people and he has to find the means, now.

True, dat. Why Trump didn’t dump Twitter already and switch to one of the other available alternatives like Gab is a mystery to me. He has millions of Twitterati following him; my guess is that if he simply posted a final announcement there about the move and included a link to his new, more free-speech-friendly home, most if not all would immediately make the jump right along with him. That would both encourage the growth of a truly impartial and open platform, and maybe even do some real damage to the Twitter propaganda machine into the bargain.

In the end, though, all the preparation in the world will be a pointless waste of time without resolve, along with a willingness to abandon the traditional defensive crouch and take the offensive in pursuit of total victory (y’know, like Trump himself has been doing all along—AHEM). Without those things, the highly-polished and carefully tended-to Arsenal Of Freedom stays locked away in the gun safe, the cartridges remain in their box until the powder finally goes sour…and shit like this keeps right on happening:

A member of the Proud Boys is hospitalized with severe injuries from being hit by a car after attending a memorial for Aaron “Jay” Danielson, the President Donald Trump supporter who was murdered by Antifa in Portland.

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio told The Gateway Pundit that the victim is bleeding from his brain, damaged his left temporal lobe, has a concussion and is suffering from amnesia and cannot remember the incident.

The Proud Boys are a pro-Trump male social group that frequently stands against Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants — which has made them a hated target of the left.

The Gateway Pundit has been asked to only identify the victim by his first name, Shane, at this time.

Following Danielson’s memorial in Vancouver, a group of Proud Boys went to a bar down the street, according to Tarrio. He said that a man who appeared to be a member of Antifa began taking photos and recordings of the people inside.

A man who witnessed the incident, Rex Fergus, told the Gateway Pundit that the man “started walking around the bar and recording us, putting his phone in our faces, supposedly for doxing.”

“As he was doing that, one of our guys confronted him and said ‘hey, get out of here, we don’t want you filming us. This is a private establishment and we’re not in public.’ The man continued to try to pick fights with people in the bar at the time, until security finally kicked him out of the bar,” Fergus said.

As the man was kicked out of the bar, there were several Proud Boys in the parking lot smoking cigarettes and just arriving from the memorial service. Fergus explained that the man had also become combative with them, so Shane pulled his phone out and started filming him back.

“Once the guy started his vehicle up and started to drive off, he hit Shane,” Fergus said. “Shane tried to get out of the way and the guy ran him over.”

Fergus said that Shane’s body went up on to the roof of the truck and his head hit the concrete when he fell.

“Immediately he was unconscious. After he hit him, the driver of the truck gassed it and left the parking lot, leaving Shane on the ground, bleeding out of his ears,” Fergus said.

These psychos are now just brazenly, openly hunting us down out there. Meanwhile the Demonrat coup attempt, which has continued without pause since before Trump even won election, will keep grinding on too. If the Dems and Deep Staters really are fearful of final defeat—on the ropes, at their wits’ end, and desperate, as a lot of folks confidently contend—well, I dunno, maybe they could be at that. But damned if they ain’t doing a pretty fair job right now of hiding it, seems to me.

The political problem—the Demonrats’ maneuvering, manipulation, and skullduggery, loathsome as it all is—we can probably afford to wait out for a bit longer yet. All the visible evidence strongly suggests an overwhelming Trump victory in November, maybe even lopsided enough to foreclose the attempt to hijack or nullify it. As long as even a gossamer-thin wisp of hope remains that the political and legal processes can still be made to work properly we should indeed be patient. In fact, we MUST.

However, the not-overtly non-political part of the equation—the contra-Constitutional lockdowns; the unchecked rioting and violence; the escalating depredations of out-of-control thugs and the accompanying mama’s-boy sissymaries in train with them—are all part and parcel of the Demonrat coup plot as well. And those things must be dealt with as well.

At the end of the day, though, all of that can and should be considered cogs in the same evil machine, different fronts in the larger struggle. And anyone who believes that the chaos and strife will all end after the election can anticipate an excruciatingly rude awakening.

Wander around America and talk to average Americans about the ongoing madness in the streets and you will find one commonly held assumption. Things will get worse between now and Election Day but then this will subside. “We will get back to normal.”

Wrong.

Yes, things will get worse between now and November 3rd. No, they are not likely to get better thereafter.

Despite suppression polls and the complicity of most major networks in refusing to cover Joe Biden’s obvious mental decline, the winds are shifting. Fears of COVID-19 are fading. Violence in American cities has turned off a great many Americans to the Democratic Party. Black Americans perhaps most of all are shifting to supporting Donald Trump and a law and order agenda.

But, for the people in the streets and the men and women directing them, this was never about an election.

Antifa, Black Lives Matter (BLM), and all their sister organizations are Marxist entities. As such they are built around the concept of “the struggle.” This is the process by which the existing capitalist and democratic system is destroyed and replaced by “the dictatorship of the proletariat.”

The “struggle” is an explicitly non-democratic process. The current system will not be voted out of office – it will be torn to pieces. In fact, only in this way, can true revolution be accomplished. Anything else is just tinkering around the edges.

The foundation for a rejection of the election results is already being laid.

What follows the increasingly likely Trump victory in November will not be calm.

It will not be a return to normal. The Marxist/Anarchist forces in this country, emboldened by a complicit media and supported by Democratic Party functionaries who thought they could control the mob, have grown too strong. They have been biding their time for decades – growing stronger and extending their reach. This is – they are convinced – their moment.

The terrorists and agitators will not go back to their homes, hang up their hoodies and helmets, and move on with their lives. A ‘Trump win’ will only convince them that much more that the only road to the Communist paradise they desire lies through increased violence. The tactics in use – which are already becoming more lethal – will shift from burning and vandalism to assassination and bombings.

The genie is out of the bottle.

The genie is out of the bottle.

What could have been crushed in its early stages by the determined use of law enforcement and intelligence assets and the resolve of state governors has become something much more dangerous. The republic is in peril, and it will take firm, decisive action across this nation to crush this insurrection and preserve the Union.

Nothing ends in November. This is just getting started.

I dearly wish I could come up with a halfway credible argument that Faddis is all wet on this. But I can’t come up with one…because he isn’t. Unless the monsters born of the rabid Left and sicced on America by the Demonrats are crushed, annihilated utterly, our irretrievable flat spin will not only continue but accelerate and worsen, until we auger in to a fiery crash of lawless disorder, total anarchy, and blood-soaked horror.

And then: war for real, and for keeps. Encompassing, inescapable, and unpredictable.

Sorry, but this wretched state of affairs IS our “normal” now. No matter what the result, November’s election will end nothing, will resolve nothing. It won’t even amount to a fleeting moment’s respite. Ironically enough, with somber war-warning tocsins sounding—sounded not by some comical, dismissable lunatic-fringe group but by ostensibly responsible high-level officials of one of the two national political parties, flatly declaring their intention to either fictionalize the results or just ignore them altogether and seize power regardless—the 2020 election begins to look less momentous, a matter of almost no lasting significance at all.

The coming unpleasantness

Bracken, bless his crusty old seadog heart, puts it to ya straight:

OpRedMirage.jpg

Study it, enlighten yourself, and come fully to grips with what they have planned for us, and for America. It ain’t pretty, it won’t be pleasant, and it cannot be allowed to prevail. They intend to rig this election, by hook or crook, then complete the “fundamental transformation” of American That Was into yet another floundering Marxist dumpster fire—a dead-end path we’ve traveled way too far along already. No matter what it takes to thwart them, they must be stopped. There are absolutely no lengths to which Real Americans should not go to ensure that their evil schemes go unrealized. Full stop, end of story, period fucking dot.

The way forward

Can’t remember where it was that I ran across this guy, but into Ye Olde Blogrolle and bookmarks he’s surely a-going, with a quickness.

The title of today’s essay is the answer to the pressing question, “What would you do were you Trump?”

Opening fire is what I would do if I were in charge. What you are I ourselves should do is a difficult question, when even self defense against the mob is a crime. (If you’re white or unwoke.) But that it is such a difficult question is why I, if I were in charge, would open fire.

Now it is not legal to riot, burn, loot, pillage, commit mayhem and murder, even if done in the name of “anti-racism” or whatever other slogan the rabble uses to justify their rapine. It is, however, legal to use force, even deadly force, to quell riots. Further, everybody knows all these things and the reasons behind them. So opening fire is justified, though perhaps not prudent. I say it is prudent, and hope to convince you of that.

Everybody also knows progressive mayors, governors and most of our oligarchs are encouraging the riots, asking their own people, as it were, to shit in their own backyards and then light themselves on fire. These rulers have no love for their peoples, and are acting immorally to increase their own power. These rulers thus have no moral authority and can and must be usurped by higher authority. Part of “opening fire” would include the arrest, trial, and hanging of those mayors, governors, and oligarchs convicted of treason and dereliction of sacred duty.

Opening fire might indeed lose Trump the election, because propagandists would scream “Literally Hitler!” with demonic fury—well, with increased demonic fury. These propagandists would be believed by a sufficient number of the easily persuaded. If Trump loses because of opening fire, right wing purges would begin in earnest next January, and our approach toward the leftist singularity would accelerate.

But don’t forget we accelerate if Trump loses even without opening fire. The perplexed, unbelieving looks on the faces of aging right wing boomers gripping their yellowed copies of the Constitution as new “laws” are passed to confiscate guns, limit speech, and ban “hate” might even be worth seeing. If you can’t have a sense of humor as the world burns, then you will never learn to laugh.

Yep, I definitely like the cut of Briggs’ jib. I especially enjoyed the bit about arresting, trying, and hanging these criminal governors and mayors. All joking around aside, that’s a proposal that, while perhaps distasteful in some small ways, is seriously in need of following through on. He has more and even better ideas, all of which I support wholeheartedly. And then there’s this one:

Looting As Reparations Is A Good Idea

Even though riots, looting, pillaging, murder and mayhem and treason are illegal, immoral, and unethical, and that putting them down through the use of violence is historically validated, legal, moral, and ethical, we all know violence is wrong. So, even though I advocated opening fire on the lawless rabble two days ago, I now see no good Christian can advocate fighting the lawless takeover of our cities. I therefore embrace looting as a means to redress in social inequities.

In this, I follow California in saying we need to “Consider Needs Of Looters Before Charging Them“. Looting can be a positive good.

The theory how looting is good insists only BLACKS!—this spelling is racism-free—were ever slaves, and only whites their masters. All whites share in the guilt of slavery, because they are white and whites share in all evils because they are white. Every BLACK! was beaten, raped, tortured and killed daily while a slave, which traumatized the genetics of their descendants. (Yes.)

The idea is that all these other races, like whites, must pony up because they have benefited from the labors of the slaves. The reasoning goes like this: sewers, corn off the cob in cans, electricity, and other whatnots are here and being used, and slaves were once here and were made to do work. Therefore, all are beneficiaries of slavery, and so all must pay.

Of course, modern BLACKS! also benefit and use these same services and infrastructures like everybody else, and have done so for a long time. These usages would have done some good to BLACKS!, like they have to other races, but because of thing called systemic racism, the good didn’t stick in BLACKS!

Systemic racism is officially defined as the racism that remains once racism has been removed.

So it’s reparations. New reparations, that is. The older reparations, such as sixty-some years of Affirmative Action, quotas in hiring and matriculation, set asides in contracts, endless woke corporate donations and pandering, an official History Month and federal holiday, accelerated promotions, the worship of the BLACK! bodies and BLACK! culture, and so on and so on and so on were not really reparations because they were not called reparations. Words matter.

They do at that. Just so long as we make certain that they all wind up folded, spindled, and mutilated into meaning the exact opposite of what was originally intended, hey, it’s all good.

Irreconcilable differences

Just another fantastic piece by Tal Bachman.

The truth is, there’s nothing particularly “united” about the United States these days. Even basic perceptions now differ. After watching the same video of 17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse, half the country thinks he committed pre-meditated murder, while the other half thinks he justifiably defended himself against weapon-wielding attackers. Same with the McCloskeys over in St. Louis: half the country saw them illegally threaten peaceful passersby; the other half saw them legally deter a mob of trespassers threatening their safety.

Half the country can’t glance at Trump without envisioning him in a Nazi uniform shouting from the Luitpoldarena podium in Nuremberg; the other half just sees a pragmatic, commonsense guy, albeit of eccentric appearance, who just wants to make America great—hell, even just functional—again after decades of mismanagement.

Half the country sees Joe Biden as a mentally sound, principled, independent man who’ll “calm everything down”; the other half sees him as the increasingly senile, corrupt, amoral puppet of cunning corporatistas and violent leftists. And we could spend another three hours thinking of examples just of the perceptual differences.

Sure, perceptual differences are one thing, but here’s the rub: objectively speaking, is one side right, and the other wrong? Does observable reality confirm the correctness of one side’s opinion, and refute the other’s? Because if it does, then any throat-clearing, mealymouthed tapdancing around to concede a “respect” for the side whose argument got demolished by objective reality, to grant that they “may have a point,” begins to look a whole lot less like politesse or civility and more like confusion at best, cowardice at worst.

As a result, we must say that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron revealed a dangerous naiveté during his Tuesday night convention speech when he concluded that “we all just want the same things in the end”. No, we don’t. Some of us want to live in safe, clean communities, populated by strong families, pursuing meaningful, shared, morally-grounded lives of noble purpose. And some of us—quite a lot of us, actually—don’t.

Those that don’t have been obsessively destroying lives, careers, educations, reputations, property, everything they could, for months now, under protection from Democrat politicians. And remember that this ongoing destruction is only the most recent manifestation of a multi-decade effort to sow dissension, and co-opt or destroy every institution of influence necessary for healthy civic order.

No country can remain intact and democratic with moral and perceptual divides this great, nor with this many citizens actively or passively trying to destroy it. A house this divided just can’t remain standing for much longer, at least in its current form.

So where does that leave us?

In one hell of a pickle, that’s where, with no way out that won’t be difficult, painful, and surpassingly bloody. Tal posits three possibilities, the last and least likely of which is what he calls “national divorce.” It will never happen, for reasons I’ve specified here before and won’t revisit now, but Tal nevertheless paints a most appealing picture of what it could look like.

In the newly-created People’s Republic of Leftistan, for example, citizens could live out their political fantasies without being hindered by the gap-toothed, cross-burning, Bible-thumping, flyover-country yokels they believe populated most of their previous country, or by their orange, evil, racist, Nazi Klansman Führer hero, Donald Trump.

They could ban electricity, cars, straws, diapers, soft drinks, meat-eating, Christianity, heterosexual marriage, the English language (“the language of the slave owners”)—anything they wanted.

They could expand upon their infanticide fetish by offering Sunday morning child sacrifice rituals in their town squares.

They could import all 652 million Latin Americans and all one billion sub-Saharan Africans, then give them all guaranteed-incomes for life.

They could legalize crack cocaine, human-animal marriage, and even cannibalism. Come to think of it, they could appoint super-Democrat, author, and real-life cannibal Reza Aslan as their official Cannibalism Czar. He could visit Leftistan’s elementary schools to tell the kids all about the wondrous multiculturalist bona fides he earned after snacking on human brains during his CNN special. They could do anything they wanted.

And here’s the thing: Why not?

Yes, in ceding territory for Leftistan, the United States would be giving up some great California beach front, the New Jersey Boardwalk, Manhattan, and a few other valuable patches of land; but then, they’d also be excising a malignant demographic cancer comprised of demented, destructive humans which no healthy nation can tolerate. Without them, the United States would actually have a chance at being united again.

Not only that, but shorn of its would-be destroyers, America would begin to thrive like never before, building great families, great communities, great schools, great parks, great recreational activities, great churches, and great businesses. For my money, getting a lunatic-free country for a few beaches would be a damn fine trade.

Now, I admit a national divorce would be sad for some. Breakups, even the necessary ones, usually are. No one wants a beautiful dream to die.

I only say that the beautiful dream of Idaho, Alabama, Wyoming, and Mississippi one day seeing the world the same way as California, Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey, and then unifying to forge a brilliant national future, was never going to come true; and more importantly, that beautiful dream has transformed into a real-life nightmare. Without a hard demographic reset (like violent lunatics all moving—or being moved—to Leftistan), the nightmare will never, ever end. If Trump wins in November, the riots, the delegitimizing of the victory, the refusal to accept the results, the false accusations, the pernicious media confections…it will all continue. And if Biden wins, the managed deconstruction of the United States—largely halted the past four years—will resume. Again: As long as these people are around, the nightmare will never, ever end.

The good news is, it ends as soon as they’re gone. Then a new dream begins—and that dream is one that, maybe, really could come true.

Probably so. In fact, it WAS true—American’s assumed birthright, more or less, which began to crumble only when Americans began taking it for granted—for many, many years. But before it can be brought to life again, we’re going to have to get them gone from us. And we all know that, as a practical matter, there’s only one way to do it.

An aside: I only recently learned that this Tal Bachman fellow, who’s been doing most of the heavy lifting of keeping Steyn Online alive as far as I’m concerned, is actually Randy Bachman’s son, a chip off the ol’ rock-block with a couple-three hit ditties of his own under his belt. Which biographical curiosity, happily, provides me with all the excuse I’ll ever need to trot out a good ol’ Bachman-Turner song.




Not all THAT old, actually. But good just the same.

Is it insurrection yet?

I’d say so, yeah.

Sen. Rand Paul: My wife and I were attacked by a mob — Dems would worsen problem by bowing to rioters

Don’t look now, Senator, but they aren’t just “bowing” to them. They’re encouraging them, covering for them, lying about who they are and what they’re doing to help maintain the facade of legitimate protest, and ensuring that they’re exempt from the law by ordering cops to stand down and refusing to prosecute the handful who do get arrested.

The Dems aren’t “worsening” the problem; they ARE the problem. They need to be made to pay for that, and dearly.

My wife Kelley and I were attempting to leave the White House event. We were staying at a hotel directly across the street, maybe 50 yards from the gates of the White House. But as we went to leave, it became apparent there was no safe exit out the gates and through the unruly mob that had gathered there.

Why? Because another Democratic-run city had decided it would bow to lawless rioters instead of protecting its citizens. Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by the Secret Service to allow wider and better protection for those leaving the White House Thursday night, but she refused.

Mayor Bowser and many others are responsible for what happened. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called my Senate colleagues and me “enemies of the state.” Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris has advocated paying bail to get violent rioters out of jail.

Three Democratic House members who are part of the socialist “Squad” have called for people to “take to the streets.”

Well, national Democrats, your people are listening to you. How does it feel to watch it happen?  Are you comfortable watching the mob go after my wife and me?

Of course they are. To them, you ARE the enemy. If you learn nothing else from your ordeal, Sen Paul, please learn that these filthy snakes in the grass are neither your colleagues nor your countrymen. They are well and truly enemies, and dangerous ones at that—enemies not just of you and your wife personally, but of every decent American, of the Constitution, of the country entire. And they aren’t just playing around here; the insurrection is for real, they’re all in and playing for keeps, and they firmly intend to win.

My question is: Who are these people? Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this.

And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction. The American people are starting to catch on and grow tired of it.

So I ask Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris this:

Will you stand up finally and denounce this violence and destruction? Will you quit inciting it and urge other leaders to do the same?

My wife and I await your answers.

I hope you aren’t holding your breath.
