Michael G. observes, "Citizen response to caravan invasion. Will this play into the enemy's hands?"

But those poor downtrodden desperate refugees aren't the people we need to worry about... RIGHT?

Michael then sends, "The walk away movement needs to expand - to walk away from K12 public schools, which might just as well be the Democrat party." Burn the government schools.

Virulent envirofascism was one component of John Ringo's horror story, The Road to Damascus, which I finished rereading yesterday, leading to food shortages and economic collapse. But that was just a story... RIGHT?

And nothing like that could ever happen here... RIGHT? Some of this, you do [Ctrl]-[H] on the buzzwords, and it's right out of the novel. Or a Nuremberg Rally.

Think about the kind of people who oppose self-defense.

    Michael G. sends, "American gun owners, gun industry are anti-Semites! How else do you explain them offering free weapons and training to Rabbis?"

    The World Sucks

    MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD

    BURN THE GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

    But remember, you right-wing knuckle-dragging misogynist Nazi, you should be banned from the internet for advocating violence.

    This is why racism still exists. Republican NRA members with MAGA hats never IMAGINE acting this way.

    Wrangler brand jeans is not answering the question.

    Where's your ballot?

    Down goes Germany.

    But that's not something we need to worry about... right? Which segues to:

    Michael G. sends, "2nd 'refugee' caravan is even more peaceful than the first. In the Progressive's opposites day sense, of course."

  • And any cop who tries to not open the border to rapists and murderers and plague-carriers gets sued by the ACLU, as Michael observes, "For following Federal law on detaining aliens rather than State law. Didn't Montana try one of those firearms freedom acts, where if a gun was made in the state, sold in the state and only used in the state it wasn't subject to federal firearms law? And didn't the first person to try it get arrested and lost in court because the judge ruled Federal laws had supremacy? Where was the Montana ACLU supporting state laws over fed laws in that case?"
  • AND THAT'S NOT HYPERBOLE IN THIS HORRIBLE PLACE.
  • WHERE THE POLICE ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE MOBS.
  • But they keep telling us to "work within" their system.
  • The system which keeps producing GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORIES.
  • "The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."

    Michael G. sends yet another FAKE HATE CRIME. "The suspect in a synagogue vandalism act that forced the cancellation of a Democratic event is reportedly a former City Hall employee who worked on anti-hate crime issues and is a Democratic activist." Of course all those bombs sent to Democrats were fake.

    Which segues to double standards of monopolistic censorship.

    Which segues to KAVANAUGH ACCUSER ADMITS LYING AND NOBODY WANTS TO DO A STORY ON THAT.

    Wrangler jeans, answer the question.

    You know, sometimes, the victim does deserve blame. Denial of self-defense is a crime against humanity. Which segues to:

    "Even Moses said, 'F*** this s***, let’s get out of Egypt and find a better place.'" I've been saying "get out of the cities" for years.

    To which dot Michael G. connects "Wire the border, or face wire inside the borders? As combat engineers place wire to strengthen border defenses some complain about it, but from Germany we can see the alternative might be enemies placing wire inside our borders."

    Michael then sends "Academia is a cult. Written by a man who grew up in a cult, and then became an academic before leaving that, too." -While in the sidebar on the same web page is nothing but articles calling Trump "racist"....

    And then, armed white supremacists rally with "assault weapons" for Republican candidateNO THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED. And that is why racism still exists.

    Because GENOCIDE IS NOT HYPERBOLE.

    Even the real National Socialists didn't offer baby body parts for sale - fresh.

    Watched a live Trump rally on YouTube last night and came up with a meme: Republicans freed slaves. Democrats breed slaves.

    Democrats are the party of lies, theft, hate, violence and murder.

  • GUN CONTROL SUCCESS STORY IT'S STILL NOT REPUBLICAN NRA MEMBERS WITH MAGA HATS
  • NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY REALLY BELIEVE OTHERWISE.
  • I'm pretty sure it was not Republican NRA members with MAGA hats in this incident either, in a place where self-defense is against the "law".
  • Think about the kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself.
  • When the National Socialists occupied France, or when the Black-and-Tans occupied Northern Ireland, and presumably when the Empire of Japan occupied China and Korea, there were summary executions for mere possession of a firearm. But nothing like that could ever happen again... RIGHT?

    The World Sucks

    And then I got out of bed and
    went back to work.
    Once you understand Dilbert is an ongoing documentary,
    the world makes a lot more sense.

    And then I got back late because of stupid people.
    I mean this level of incompetence.
    All the damn day long.


    Washington state: Vote NO on I-1639

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    Brainwashed bigots....

    Psychotic delusions....

    Willfully ignorant....

    "...[T]he determination to destroy people, professionally and personally, for standing in the way of the ideologues." In this horrible place.

    And ever more of the same.

    I believe it was William F. Buckley who said something like, "Liberals claim to welcome alternative points of view, and are then shocked and offended that there are alternative points of view."

    Michael G. sends "Media refuse to run Trump ad on immigration. Proving once again that Trump is just like Hitler. Why, I can't remember all the times after Hitler became Fuhrer that the German press refused to run his advertisements and messages. Maybe the reason I can't remember it is because it never happened."

    Followed by a three part series on the invasion caravan: "Last paragraph of the last installment: 'These are not people casting off their old lands. On the contrary, they are taking their screwed-up homes on tour, and showing the world just how bad they are firsthand. But I will say that increasingly, nobody can look at their home countries and suppose the way things are is an accident. For people trying to flee lawlessness and violence, it’s curious how insistent they seem on bringing them along for the journey.'"

    It is not unfair or prejudicial to automatically assume allegations of criminality by Republicans are false and by Democrats are true. It's a pattern.

    And that pattern includes genocide.

    And genocide is still not hyperbole.

  • Hey remember all those dystopian books and films about totalitarian social credit systems and the like? Those were just stories... RIGHT?
  • When I see cops I see a death squad.
  • And all their "brothers in blue".
  • "Protect" and "Serve" WHO?

    In Lighter News

    Armed self-defense, and defense of others, works. Think about the kind of people who don't want you to have it.

    Remember those "Schoolhouse Rock" cartoons? Especially the ones about the Constitution and such? Michael G. sends "A means to counter grade school anti-American propaganda. A way for parents to get their kids to discover that America is a good nation."

    Posting this early and doing the rest of the blog later:

    Michael G. sends, "Our elite future leaders. Champions of rationality. Just tell them the tree was originally planted by a Confederate slave owner. Then they'll cut it down themselves and save the college the expense."

    Remember, peasant, media bias doesn't exist.

    Hey remember when separate drinking fountains was a bad thing?

    So Nancy Pelosi is once again two heartbeats from the Oval Office. (Well not yet but I expect she's drooling like any of Pavlov's dogs, fantasizing about plane crashes.)

    Michael G. sends, "Facebook again demonstrates their true standards. Constitutional conservatives are haters who must be suppressed, but selling an African teenage girl for marriage is totes okay."

    But hey let's have even more Immigrants Contributing to Society.

    The endgame of John Ringo's horror story, The Road to Damascus, was urban populations committing genocide against rural populations. But that was just a story... right?

    Which segues to, this weekend marks the anniversary of the Night of Broken Glass, and it looks like some people are celebrating early. (Andthisiswhyracismstillexists.)

    To which dot Desert Hermit Joel connects self-destructive Jews, which David Codrea also ponders.

    Which segues to the National Socialists making it impossible for certain kinds of people to do business.

  • In Washington state, thousands of peaceable human beings will become instant "criminals" with the stroke of a bureaucrat bigot's pen. Yes, Fudd, that means granpa's Woodsmaster too.
  • And another proposed "law" to enforce in Pennsylvania.
  • "...Willeford was certain he’d be jailed for doing the right thing."
  • "JUST A FEW BAD APPLES"

    Seen in comments to that death squad article:

    “Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

    “An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

    “When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.

    “These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

    “An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery.” (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

    “Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

    “One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

    “Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, ‘If there be any remedy at all ... it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.’ That was the ‘ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.’” (From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

    As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” (Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197).

    Police are not the good guys. The laws are wrong and to enforce them is evil.

    Something really interesting happening in Brazil.

    Likewise, Michael G. sends, "Veterans exempt from carry permit training requirements in Ohio. I thought this was a good point by Bearing Arms: 'Of course, a better solution would be to kill the training requirement completely.' I'd go farther and say Constitutional Carry, but I'll take any movement in the right direction as long as the movement is maintained."

    Then, "Today's point and laugh: In Nevada a Democrat lost a state legislature seat in a landslide to a Republican brothel owner who was dead. I'd like to see more of this, dead whore mongers are way less dangerous to our rights than live whore mongers are."

    And, "Man Bites Dog: A Federal judge advocates for jury nullification, in his own courtroom."

    MASSIVE BLATANT DELIBERATE PERVASIVE NATIONWIDE ENDLESS VOTE FRAUD

    And other factors.

    REAL SOCIALISM HAS NEVER BEEN TRIED

    Massive media incompetence

    Think about the kind of people you are forced, at the figurative point of a government gun, to entrust your children to. Burn the government schools.

    And the colleges too.

    Enemy action in Wisconsin, and as previously mentioned, Kansas.

    Lying RINO backstabbing from California.

    Speaking of the Left Coast, no really gun control success story.

    African-Americans barred from applying for government jobsOH. WAIT.

    But they call us "racist".

    Many times I've referred to things as "entertainment rot". Art is rotting too, as Michael G. observes: "Seattle preparing art based Kafka trap. That's not what they're calling it but it is pretty obvious to people who pay attention to what they've done in the past. If the art you own, or display or even like is based too much on your own culture and ancestry you are racist for excluding others, and if it is based too much on other cultures you are racist for appropriating, and in other case the mob will be unleashed on you. And where is the sweet spot that is neither exclusionary or appropriating? It doesn't exist! This is all merely another way for them to exert power, and even if you are thoroughly cowed and do whatever you are told you might be chosen at random to be the sacrificial victim to keep others cowed. How soon does Portland copy this?"

    But remember, peasant, suppression of Conservative opinion doesn’t happen and it doesn’t affect your career.

  • Now connect that dot to this one and this one. Eighty years ago anyone suspected of being Jewish was a "red flag". Forty years ago anyone suspected of being "intellectual" was a "red flag". Now, anyone suspected of being conservative can expect to have their rights violated, their property stolen, their careers ruined, and even their very lives at risk.
  • By which I mean, over the past few days I've made comparison of thugs in America, like Antifa and black street gangs, to Kristallnacht. That comparison is valid. 'Rank and file municipal police officers were ordered by their superiors to “stand down;” to watch, observe, but not to contain the mob violence occurring on the streets. There are several instances of police inaction during the rioting.'
  • The other day was the judge who lost an election and expressed his tantrum through releasing every juvenile offender which came before his bench. Today Michael G. sends, "Federal judge blocks Keystone pipeline. Says it hasn't been studied enough. Are we up to three lawless judges in two days now? Is it a spate?"
  • Oh look yet another child molester with a badge. And remember these are the same costumed sociopaths who stand around watching while mobs threaten to exterminate us.

    Michael G. sends, "Vox, Doxxed. Co-founder of Vox has been doxxed in apparent retaliation for his 'The Carlsons had it coming' tweet. Any chance they will realize they don't like the new rules they've created before they completely destroy the old ones?"

    Aaaaand don't go to college, where psychotic racist Jew-haters expect to be rewarded for brainwashing students.

    Yeah burn the colleges.

    Michael then asks, "In France, is 'Freedom is Slavery' next? Because their president has made the Orwellian statement that 'Nationalism is Treason'."

    (That feel when Donald J. Trump is classier and more respectful than the President of France.)

    He then sends "Always believe the woman: Shoplifter says she was raped by male Sheriff's deputy. Video evidence shows it never happened, and that the deputy was a woman. So we get vindication with full video. How long before we stop getting 'reasonable doubt' when the video system 'malfunctions' or 'was inadvertently disabled'?"

    So recently I reread John Ringo's horror story, The Road to Damascus, set in Keith Laumer's Bolo universe. Comes now word that John Ross' broadly-comparable horror story, Unintended Consequences, is available in its seventh printing.

    Speaking of horror stories, Nineteen Eighty-Four was not supposed to be an instruction manual.

    Sink the Island. Both ends.

    Michael G. sends, "Mexico's government stops pretending to want to stop invasion caravan." Heeyyyy let's have another Mexican-American War.

    Enemy action in Michigan.

  • Michael G. sends, "Remember that argument against armed self defense, that when the cops show up they won't know who the bad guy is and will shoot you? Apparently it's true, even if you are wearing a uniform and are surrounded by other cops who are congratulating you on a job well done. But at least the cop got to go home alive at the end of his shift." “The very people that he wanted to be family with took his life.” Yeah, well, think about the kind of trigger-happy homicidal sociopaths who want to be cops. Jemel Roberson's disillusionment was brief in duration but eternal in effect.
  • Police make an industry of armed robbery.

    Years ago there was a rally in Tennessee, in which conservative protesters were accused, by a member of that state's legislature, of displaying a "Nazi" or "white supremacist" flag... which turned out to be the state flag of Tennessee, which a member of Tennesee's state legislature did not recognize. Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, now sends: "Bolshevik Barbie is annoyed that Amazon will be opening a major facility in her district in Long Island City. There’s just one problem: Long Island City isn’t in her district." And... jobs are bad? I guess?

    That Tennessee legislator was a very indignant black woman, if I recall correctly. And that, and this from a year ago, is why racism still exists. Not Republican NRA members with MAGA hats. Which I have pondered.

    But I can think of another demographic known for carrying guns who are violently prejudiced against certain kinds of people.

And I’m ever more deeply trapped here with no place to go and no way out." Just as I'm stuck in this horrible place on the other end of the continent.
  • Gun Control Success Story
  • Not the first time this exact thing has happened: Remember, peasant, society needs government to provide vital goods and services to those in need.
  • What "law" would you not enforce?
  • What order would you not obey?
  • Bears repeating: when you see a cop, run or start shooting. Based on their documented and ongoing pattern of behavior, any other choice is likely to get decent people killed.

    The World Sucks

    NO, REALLY, MASSIVE VOTE FRAUD.

    Michael G. sends, "If Dems can't win/steal election they poison the well, to cause others to lose faith in the system, and see the Dems as their future saviors. That's what is happening in GA."

    It's not paranoia if they really are conspiring against us.

    It's not paranoia if they really are out to get us.

    Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends: "Treachery. I’m glad Flake is leaving, but we’re stuck with all the other treacherous gutless wonders in the 'Republican leadership'. Considering that it’s the freaks in the black robes who really run the show right now, the importance of judicial appointments is huge, and this idiot will gum up the works to protect the pointless Russia thing. It’s stories like this that remind me that I don’t have enough ammo stashed, and in lovely New York, I have to pay full retail because I can’t buy it online for cheap. I’ve moved past the walls closing in feeling and on to the walls are caving in on me."

    Followed by, "King Andrew Of New York speaks the obvious: The only reason that any businesses move into or stay in NY is because the state hands out tax breaks like candy, while jacking up the personal income taxes and the residential property taxes."

    And those walls are everywhere. As Michael G. sends: "Washington state freedom, where you are free to do whatever the state tells you to do, and free not to do what the state tells you not to do. It's another gay wedding case, this one involving a florist. And the prosecution persecution was all from the state. The gay couple never filed a complaint, respected the florist's beliefs and accepted her offer to find them a florist of equivalent skill who was willing to do the job." So how did the tax-paid persecutors even find out about it?

    It's not racist if WAKANDA!!! really is like this.

    But hey let's bring even more of those people into our country.

    Action in North Carolina, Tuesday the 20th.

    I am suddenly reminded of a temp assignment I had, years ago, to inventory a bunch of computer equipment and make a spreadsheet of it. I completed the task, put the file on a floppy disk (yes, that long ago) and handed it to the Information Technology guy for the whole company. ...Who had no idea what to do with it. The rot has been spreading for a long time.

  • Michael G. sends, "Women never lie about assault! I especially like the line at the bottom that they didn't use liar's name in the story because she had never been charged with a crime. Why not? I don't even insist on prison time, just something to give her a felony record to serve as a red flag the next time she goes off on someone she hasn't seen in years because her feelings were hurt back in the day."
  • But keep working within their system.
  • OR ELSE.
  • "...[S]he meant to draw and fire her Taser, not her gun." Not the first time we've heard that excuse. Or the third or fourth or maybe the twentieth.
  • "...[W]oman who was wrongfully convicted of drug charges and sent to prison with the help, in part, of a rogue federal law enforcement officer." And the pig isn't swinging from a gallows because...?
  • The kind of people who make a career of "law" enforcement.

    POOR PEACEFUL DISADVANTAGED UNDERPRIVILEGED "REFUGEES"

    Republican NRA members with MAGA hats don't act like this.

    Burn all the government schools, all around the world. It seems Common Core is alive and crippling young minds in Japan.

    To which dot Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, timely connects: "The rot spreads. Seriously, New Zealand? High school seniors don’t know the word 'trivial'? Hell, my 6 year old knows what 'trivial' means."

    Then, "The New York Slimes blames California wildfires on those nasty people who insist on living outside of cities. Herd ‘em into the cities, disarm them, and control the masses oh so much more efficiently." Which I have also pondered.

    Michael G. sends, "The Last Centurion was just a novel, right? And Fallen Angels too?" (ref & ref)

    "Perhaps you can comfort her by telling her that although, thanks to folk like you, he didn’t have a gun to defend himself, at least he wasn’t shot."

    Aaaaand Quislings.

    Monopolistic censorship which segues to:

  • "Finally some are getting around to calling it what it was: Extortion."
  • Ex post facto "law"
  • Speaking of made-up malum prohibitum "laws", the libertarian position on prostitution is anti-prohibition. Think about the kind of people who get wrist-slaps and tax-funded pensions for doing the same things they'd destroy any of our lives over.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Seriously, these steroid-addled impulse-control-lacking sociopaths aren't even safe from each other. Remember all these things every time you see any cop of any kind.
  • The place where Britain used to be. Click through and look how proud the costumed sociopath is to be robbing people at the implied point of a government gun.
  • Two years ago now I accused the anti-self-defense perverts of having genocidal fantasies AND NOW THEY PROVE ME RIGHT IN SO MANY OF THEIR OWN WORDS.
  • To which dot connect.
  • Years ago I wrote, "Finally, the real shock sank in: He hadn't seen a single police officer since he boarded the shuttle at Geneva. On one hand, the immigrant was intimidated by the sight of so many armed people, but on the other, exhilarated: for the first time in his life, he didn't have to worry about UNPF troops - the United Nations Police Force, faceless behind riot-armor masks - halting and searching him for no particular reason, or simply opening fire on someone they judged suspicious with their automatic shotguns." Now Michael G. sends, sometimes the system works, but that's not the way to bet: "Pigs are flying! The man charged with assault-by-panic-attack was acquitted, working within their system. I don't call it a win, the process is the punishment, but at least it was a better result than experience has led us to expect." The problem remains; a victim of assault and kidnapping now has a "criminal" record for attempting to resist being assaulted and kidnapped. The real criminals will keep expecting to get away with it until real consequences are applied to them.

    Be prepared to lie to your doctor.

    More riots downtown today. As I type this at 10am I predict the police will stand around watching while communists assault and attempt to murder patriots. I would also not be surprised if a leftist acquires a firearm, with appropriately-scary aesthetics, and uses it to mow down Republican NRA members with MAGA hats, while pretending to be one. Because that's how socialists have always operated.

    We can all be pretty sure it was not Republican NRA members with MAGA hats doing this either.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan Skypes, "$700,000,000 in taxpayer munnies, it runs out of fuel, and NA$A just turns it off. I wonder how long it's gonna take for someone to buy it offa NA$A for a dollar, and then hire SpaceX to fly up a new power cell?"

    Which kind of segues to the "Republican war on science".

  • Michael G. sends, "DC Police tactics are to act like an army of occupation. And surprise! it turns out that when you trade liberty for temporary security you lose both liberty and security." Fear the "protectors" more than what they claim to protect us from.
  • Then, "Law of Self Defense: Unarmed force can be deadly force. Andrew Branca looks at a man convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 years in Texas for unintentionally killing a man he was trying to subdue physically. The law defines deadly force by its effects, not by the means it was delivered. If your bare hand attack can be lethal, you can only use it against people who are an immediate threat to others. And not a drunk urinating in public. Note that the killer is the husband of a sheriff's deputy." Which is also a thing I have pondered.
  • "The ACLU does not support due process."

    NO REALLY BRAINWASHING CHILDREN TO HATE ME FOR THE COLOR OF MY SKIN.

    Not unrelated, Michael G. sends the bizarre, psychotic, inverted-pretzel-logic blood libel o' the day: "Jews accused of committing Armenian genocide. And the web site that claims this runs a banner of socialist Jeremy Corbyn. Lying, anti-Semitic socialists. Where have we seen that before? I must be mistaken, everyone knows we are the Nazis of today's world."

    "Black people are no longer oppressed." Though some are becoming oppressors....

  • Already observed from The Captain's Journal: small-town police chief won't enforce I-1639. I have questions. How many people have he or his department robbed and kidnapped for bearing arms without a government permission slip? Alternately, if he does keep his word, how long until child porn is "found" on "his" computer? Never trust a cop of any kind - even if you are one.

    Hm, increments in Ohio. Again I ask, who came up with the "duty to retreat"?

    Michael G. sends, "Let's make a habit out of this: PeTA nut fined for stealing a fisherman's catch, that was going to be his family's dinner. The $500 fine isn't so big, the court costs help there, but if this happens every time these jerks do this kind of thing maybe they will learn." And that is why I want to go hunting some year, just to tick off the domestic terrorists. Gotta get out of this horrible place first.

    Speaking of PC and SJWism, the other day I saw a comment suggesting that CHL holders would be reluctant to intervene to save innocent lives because they fear the government more than the mass-murdering monsters.

"A friend of mine who is a political activist said something interesting the other day, and that was for most people on the left political violence is a knob, and they can turn the heat up and down, with things like protests, and riots, all the way up to destruction of property, and sometimes murder... but for the vast majority of folks on the right, it’s an off and on switch. And the settings are Vote or Shoot F***ing Everybody."

  • "How strange that judges know a law is bad if it applies to them, yet they are willing to apply it to us."

    Then, "Tests for subconscious racial bias produce subconscious racial bias. Impressive racket. Administer a test that produces what you are testing for, then point to the existence of what you were testing for as justification for you and your allies to exercise power against the people you were testing." Meanwhile, the neighbors on the other side of the wall, and the other end of the bell curve, are conforming to stereotype. And what am I supposed to do about that? Go over there to complain? They'll knife or shoot me on the spot, or wait until I go to work to refill their EBT cards, then break in and steal my property. Call the police? Yeah I know whose side they're on. That walls-closing-in feeling.

    The other day Jacob N. sent an item on New Zealand students not knowing common words. The rot continues to spread. As will the bridge collapses and airliner crashes and medical equipment failures and infrastructure interruptions and....

The pickup had earlier been used in a smash and grab burglary of guns at a pawn shop. The suspect arrested has a Hispanic name. What is his status? If illegal, did Colorado's sanctuary policies have anything to do with his presence? Or could he be a DACA dreamer? And where were the stolen guns intended to go, or were they just going to be sold off to anyone with cash? Also the dead teacher sounds like a real bleeding heart liberal. Did any of his actions while alive contribute to the criminality that led to his death? If we get the answers to these questions, this story may end up touching on many aspects of the assault on gun rights and their defense."

Lower state courts ruled in his favor but the Indiana Supreme Court said that while the fine was excessive, that part of the Eighth Amendment didn't apply to Indiana until the Supreme Court specifically said it did. However, how the Supreme Court does something is as important as what the Supreme Court does. George Will wants them to use reining in civil asset forfeiture abuse as a means to throw constitutional originalism under the bus. Of course he does." Um, Constitutional originalism is to restrain government and leave people the f*** alone.

An editorial from the Monday November 26 edition of the University of Iowa's newspaper, the Daily Iowan, that calls gun control "common sense" without defining what specific proposals they are talking about, states by implication that rights are decided by majority vote, and states that opposition to his positions (which are still vague) is purely politics while implying his positions are completely politics free." Yyyeah when your article starts out kind of celebrating the erosion of free speech I can tell where you're going.

Nobody would ever dream of setting up a panel of doctors who would decide to euthanize you if they decide that you’re not practical to treat." And they laughed at Sarah Palin....

    Jacob follows with: "Entitlement. OK, so this person has a college degree and works a food service job for minimum wage. I wonder what she majored in? I understood when when I started college that not every major lead to a decent career path. I knew from elementary school that I wanted to be a teacher, and I really love ancient history. So in college I majored in physical chemistry and took history classes for fun. (I ended up with a history degree in addition to my chemistry doctorate, but that was later on, for fun, once I had an established teaching career.) Why physical chemistry? Because science teachers are always WAY more in demand than history teachers, and also because chemistry allowed me a fallback career path in the pharmaceutical industry as well. Do I like physics and chemistry? Yes, but not as much as I like History, but there’s just no money to be made as a historian. So I chose to do something I didn’t like as much in order to ensure a better future for myself. And you know what? Those choices I made 25 years ago paid off, since I’ve never been out of work since 1999. Sure, I’ve changed jobs a bunch, and I’ve had some jobs that really sucked, but I’ve always been able to find jobs that had actual paychecks. And nobody gave me handouts, and I never took money from the government, and I paid for my schooling by working a job while I went to school, and I never expected society at large to pay my way. And the reason I’m trapped in NY has more to do with the fact that I have a decent career and a bunch of kids who have friends and lives, and I’m too lazy at this point in my life to start over (and more importantly, make my kids start over) somewhere else, and evil NY has been boiling this frog slowly, so I’ve found that I can take more crap than I thought I’d ever put up with. At least I live upstate away from the pit of hell that is NYC. So the bottom line is that I compromised on the hopes, dreams, and idealism of youth and took the more economically sound route, and in the end, I have a mostly tolerable life, and I don’t man a deep fryer for a living. Wow, that turned into quite a rant."

    Then, "Well, whaddya know. Hurricanes more destructive than ever. Note the subheading: 'It has surprisingly little to do with climate change.' It has everything to do with building too much luxury housing on the beaches."

    As for college, Michael G. sends, "Another college to add to the Avoid/Ignore list. That is, avoid allowing anyone you care about to attend and ignore anyone who graduates from there. They would have made the list just by having a 'Social Justice Month', but paying the Hogglet to speak during that month is further confirmation." Jacob evidently went to college when something useful could still be expected of the experience and the expense. Nowadays, in my view, not going at all is the smarter choice.

    And for the love of whatever gods you choose, get your children out of the government schools.

    "RAAAAACIST"

    Real Space Enthusiasts Hate NA$A I have my own vision for Mars.

    Old Media, Illustrated. Which segues to,

    This is real socialism. Every time.

    Science fiction author Larry Niven postulated organlegging, abducting and murdering people to steal or sell their organs as spare parts. But that was just a story... RIGHT?

    Among other Contributions to Society.

    Hey remember when the National Socialists discriminated against certain kinds of businesses?

  • Tattooed gang member shoots person for cell phone. Truthful.
  • And lest that be seen as harsh, remember years back when a toddler was blamed, by the police, for not getting out of the way of the grenade they threw in his face at the wrong address? It's a pattern of behavior. Any cop. Anywhere. Of any kind.
  • Prohibition is the greater evil.

    Constitutional Carry action in North Carolina, again. If I ever do escape this horrible place, where self-defense is against the law and the police are on the side of the mobs, Constitutional Carry will be the litmus test and first cut.

    That same natural human right to keep and bear arms includes knives and I demand jail time or a noose for any hypocritical thief-with-a-badge who ever "confiscated" an "illegal" knife, and for any prosecutor-persecutor or unstable-freak-in-black-robes who upheld such bigotry.

    Increments in Italy? Maybe they're getting tired of all those "vibrant contributions".

    In TrumpKeepsHappening news, Michael G. sends, "Supreme Court rules a species must actually live in a habitat for it to be critical habitat. Even the Obama judges couldn't bring themselves to say that an area where a species is unable to live is critical habitat for that species."

    The World Sucks

    THIS HORRIBLE PLACE AND THE POLICE ARE OBEYING ORDERS TO BE ON THE SIDE OF THE MOBS. "Tied with Vancouver, Washington [just across the river, the mass-transit systems are connected], Portland is the most depressed city in the entire United States." IT'S NOT JUST ME THIS PLACE REALLY IS THAT BAD.

    Speaking of establishments taking the side of the creatures that want to destroy them, the place where Sweden used to be.

    And the GOP is doing what for us?

    In support of my don't-go-to-college position, Students at Williams College Demand Freedom from Speech. I'm starting to see some of the results in the workplace, especially on auction day, when the drivers show up from the temp services, put themselves in positions to harm others or be harmed, and become furious at the slightest criticism or even basic instruction.

    Which segues to, there was that bridge collapse in Florida due to diversity hires, there have been ship collisions at sea due to diversity hires, and now there's an allegation of mass murder due to diversity hires.

    Which is not unrelated to entertainment rot. To which dot connect.

    Michael G. sends the cultural vibrancy of the day: "Some good questions on immigration no one wants to answer. And as a personal observation, note the broad overlap between those supporting no borders and those wanting to end vaccinations. Go team pandemic!"

    Followed by, "Right wing Republican anti-Semite calls for elimination of IsraelOH. WAIT."

    But Immigrants Contribute So Much to Society.

    Again with the lynch mob....

    Your Tax Dollars At Work, dehumanizing and demonizing a segment of the population as a precursor to genocide. You don't have enough ammunition and you haven't been getting enough practice.

    Commit massive vote fraud, get paid more in one year than I work for in some decades.

  • Paving the way for death squads in Wyoming.
  • Infringements and discrimination in Detroit and Florida.
  • To which Michael G. adds, "Sioux City, Iowa bans the carrying of BB guns. 'Outside of the city’s council chambers, Sioux City Sergeant Scott Hatting held up a BB gun police confiscated three years ago from a shoplifting case turned robbery.... He says the goal is to stop a major crime before it happens.' Yeah, you'll shoot your eye out, kid."
  • Remember, peasant, work within their system.
  • OR ELSE.
  • Never trust a cop of any kind or anything that looks like one.

    Here is your Real American o' the Day.

    Bears repeating: Constitutional Carry action in South Dakota and North Carolina. More. If you're there, hit the phones and emails to do your part.

    All that complaining about entertainment rot and media bias and someone is doing something about it.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan sends schadenfreude. What did they think would happen.

    This is not funny because
    it reminds me of the temps who
    show up to drive on auction day.
    And some of the people who've
    worked there for elebenteen years too.


    In the alternate-history TV series The Man in the High Castle, J. Edgar Hoover is an enthusiastic National Socialist and head of the Reich Bureau of Investigation. Maybe that history isn't so "alternate" after all.

    They really do hate us and fantasize about waging genocide against us.

    Meanwhile in one of those third-world tinpot-dictatorship banana republics, the secret police threaten to depose their president by forceOH. WAIT. You should buy more ammunition now.

    Enemy action in Florida and for all you Fudds who think none of that will apply to granpa's sporterized Springfield, "...[T]hey don’t define sniper rifle, so presumably that is going to cover every bolt action rifle with a scope on it." And you thought Matthew Bracken was writing fiction.

    Michael G. sends "Even when they're right, they're wrong. National Review's Robert Verbruggen says that the Executive branch doesn't have the power to ban bumpstocks. But he says Congress has the power to ban bumpstocks, and that they should." Also Trump godsdammit stop.

    Then, "Poor, uneducated people have no rights. I don't do Twitter because I didn't see a use for it, but apparently it is good for letting progs commit DC gaffes, i.e. inadvertently saying what you really believe." Which segues to:

  • Think about the kind of people
  • who don't believe you have a right to defend yourself.
  • In this horrible place, as in most others, that would be the government and the police. On the side of the mobs.
  • Think also about the kind of people who seek a career that gives them power over others.
  • Your Tax Dollars At Work, helping costumed sociopaths get away with murder.
  • And that is neither slander nor hyperbole.
  • Dangling from streetlights along every Airport Way in the country, birds pecking at their lifeless eyes....
  • Nobody needs a silencer! Only assassins and criminals use silencers! [Police department spends tax dollars on silencers]
  • Weapons of war have no place on our streets! The only purpose for these weapons is to kill a lot of people quickly! [Department of Homeland Security spends tax dollars on grenade launchers]
  • Michael G. sends, "A deputy was called to a car / deer collision. A bystander wanted to buy a salvage tag from the deputy. The deputy refused. Later the deputy was seen sawing the antlers off the carcass. He did not have a salvage tag but even if he had, a salvage tag requires the removal of the entire carcass not just part. So by my count the deputy violated the law at least twice." Because he expected to get away with it. Because his union and his "brothers in blue" made him believe he could.
  • "PROTECT" AND "SERVE" WHO?
  • YEAH WE KNOW.

    In Lighter News

    Will SCOTUS actually rein in the armed robbery in costume?

    Anne McCaffrey's shellpeople series postulated people with severe injuries or birth defects being implanted in ships, or city control centers, so they could live full and useful lives. Something like that? Of course I have a different approach....

    TRUMP GODSDAMMIT and Fairfax too.

    Oh look yet another fake hate crime. Because there still aren't enough real ones and haven't been for decades.

    But there is entertainment rot.

    And then, landlord tells Harvard student to move out for being JewishOH. WAIT.

    Do you want to know why racism still exists? This is why racism still exists. Pointing it out is not racist. The behavior is racist and the people doing it are racist. Racism is not my fault, or Trump's, or the NRA's. Racism is THEIR fault.

    Here is your they-are-all-so-f***ing-ignorant o' the day.

    To which dot connect your tax dollars at work.

    Aaaaaand burn the government schools

    Aaaaaand the colleges too.

    Think about the kind of parents who don't want anyone defending their children.

    All those totalitarian dystopian stories....

    Michael G. sends, "My baby got sick and died after I drug her across a desert and river: it's the US gov.'s fault."

    Among all those other Contributions to Society.

  • Soooo, yeah, Big Brother really is watching.
  • Which Michael G. segues to, "There is no deep state protecting the left - and it is just coincidence that the FBI has raided the home of a whistle blower who was exposing the Clinton Foundation."
  • Think about the kind of people who don't want women able to defend themselves against sexual predators and domestic abusers.
  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because they have all that training.
  • Remember, peasant, you don't need a gun because police will be there to protect you.
  • And remember, peasant, no one is above the law.
  • Nobody is safe anywhere near cops. Not even other cops.
