Diagnosing A War On Poice

Seems like it is past time to call what is going on for what it is, a war on police.

Most Want ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Laws to Protect Police, Fear for Public Safety

Thursday, September 17, 2020 — Rasmussen Reports

Most voters believe there is a war on police in America today and want to make attacks on cops punishable as a hate crime. Blacks worry most that these attacks will make their communities less safe.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters think there is a war on police going on. That’s up from 43% two years ago and up from a previous high of 58% in 2015. Just 29% disagree, while 12% are undecided.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) also support the adoption of a Blue Lives Matter law in their state that would make attacks on police and first responders a hate crime and increase the penalties for such attacks. That’s unchanged from 2016 when Louisiana became the first of more than a dozen states to adopt such a law. Only 25% oppose a Blue Lives Matter law where they live. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters are concerned that deadly attacks on the police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety where they live, with 44% who are Very Concerned. Thirty percent (30%) don’t share that concern, but that includes only 14% who are Not At All Concerned.

Whites (63%) are bigger supporters of Blue Lives Matter laws than blacks (52%) and other minority voters (49%). But blacks (84%) are a lot more concerned than whites (66%) and other minorities (70%) about a potential shortage of police officers in their community.

I think the debate is over, time to believe the science.

Let It Rip or Rip It Up

I’m not sure how other people measure their disgust on the sliding scale but I know how I qualify my own. It has only been tested in recent events.

This week I had a short phone conversation with an acquaintance I’ve known for years. Everything was fine until at the end the person said I just hope we can do what we need to do not to re-elect this guy and he has to be voted out of office. That’s it, nothing about who else was running. Just throw Trump out of the White House.

I restrained from politics with this person, as I always have. It’s pointless. However, I could not resist suggesting, “careful what you wish for.” What do you mean” came a predictable response. I said “that alternative could be much worse.” So the conversation ended on that note with the person wondering what it meant. I thought it was fairly clear.

But isn’t that the point? They never consider alternatives or anything else for that matter. They know what they want. I could say what I want, too, but what good does that do?

That is the way it is with many people. No reasoned approach on what gets them to their conclusion. You can’t really have a dialogue with that. So I decided maybe I would put it in writing rather than waste my time. It is clear the person did not want to hear opposition.

It reminds me of the cancel culture. All they know is they want someone out, or marginalized from society. Somehow that goal fits their agenda and satisfies them. What a horrible way to view things, just cancel anything you don’t like or agree with.

Where does that power come from? It is part of mob mentality, meaning their voice and desire outweighs you or your views. And in the end, they cannot tolerate your view, belief or whatever – or you personally. It must go.

Now with the presidential race, they want to go backward and return to some euphoric Obama-Biden days. But the rest of us made it through and survived those years.

No, it was not easy.That was no picnic.

But we didn’t have a coup against the sitting president; no special counsel investigation of him; no one raking over of all his personal records; no public boycotts of anything to do with him; we didn’t prevent him from doing the job. And there was no impeachment designed and plotted from day one to oust him from office.

No riots and burning buildings with tens of thousands of decoys marching in the street. No attacks on Obama supporters. No band of people within government secretly working to undermine Obama’s administration. No courts lodging edicts to stop him. No press and media attacking him and Biden nonstop to delegitimize his election or presidency.

No sedition in the form of “resistance” to overthrow him.. No debate about the use of the 25th amendment to have him removed. No one telling people to “get in their faces” of Obama supporters, create a crowd and tell them they are not welcome in public.

No constant calls for impeachment from house members. No ripping up his State of the Union Speech in Congress. No games about preventing him from giving his SOTUS. No power plays to remove powers of the Constitutional presidency. No FBI executing phony FISA warrants and spying on him as a candidate and then as president. No surveillance of Obama’s team, and to frame him as a traitor to America.

No official of the DOJ refusing to follow and enforce executive orders or laws. No agenda to prevent President Obama from seeking or hiring people. No secretly telling other countries not to cooperate or work with the sitting president. No conspiring against him. No undermining of Obama as commander-in-chief within the military or Pentagon – or in the ranks. No working to undermine US military objectives by officials or former diplomats.

That would be only a starting point of the differences and what we endured for eight years as opposed to what the Left does now. They had their chance, wasn’t it enough?

9/11 Day Revisited

God Bless America …

On that day,
the day of memorial.

We know what this day is and what it means. But there is another side.

For me, for years, it is also a day of confrontation of what is wrong and evil which threatens us. Whether that be directly or indirectly; whether physically or by agenda. Within that realm is a lot to consider today, once all remembrances are done and respected.

At the nation’s Capitol on 9/11, Nancy Pelosi pulled off another stunt. (a poor attempt at one) She and her comrades came down the steps of the Capitol, supposedly in some reverence and symbolism, while carrying little American Flags in their hands. Someone led the singing of God Bless America. They had a moment of silence in remembrance and then turned, retreating back up the steps they descended.

Sure was a lot of symbolism there, wasn’t it? That’s all it was. But actually all those symbols Democrats are directly at odds and war with: the American Flag, unity, respect for our country, American-exceptionalism and our history.

Also, how could you try to appear to be all that while fully-engaged in sedition?

Yet there they were in stark contrast to all they really stand against – or what they stand for. Another repulsive skit in an election year, like everything else they do. But Pelosi has no shame and proved herself the queen of hypocrisy.

Well of course God Bless America would sound better than God d__ America, as Rev Wright put it. But why the lie? You figure it out.

Let’s also remember that NY and Mayor De Blasio decided to forgo most of the 9/11 ceremony and traditional reading of names weeks ago. But Frank Siller’s foundation, Tunnels To Towers, stepped in to say they would pay for and do it. So they did.

The COVID virus is too dangerous and apparently the ceremony too hazardous for Gov Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio. Yet tens of thousands of protestors who march or roam the streets are no problem in a pandemic. Shows what priorities Democrats, progressives have.

…”the land that I love.” Say that Demonrat progressives.

Another Mostly Peaceful Event

Another “mostly peaceful protest” event took place in Rochester, NY on Fridayu night. Otherwise known as a Democrat registration drive — or Democrat outreach event.

I’m still looking for the mostly peaceful part.

The Daily Mail reports:

The crowd chants, ‘If you don’t give us our shit, we shut shit down.’

‘We’re shutting you down’: Violent BLM protesters attack stunned diners and smash up a restaurant in Rochester in shocking footage during protest over the death of Daniel Prude

  • · A third night of protests took place in Rochester, New York, over the death of Daniel Prude
  • · Footage on social media showed demonstrators shutting down a restaurant while residents dinned
  • · It mirrored a similar incident in Washington D.C. when some protesters demanded they raise their fist in solidarity for the cause
  • · Authorities deployed tear gas, and reportedly pepper balls, at protesters who did not disperse at their order
  • · The demonstration was declared an ‘unlawful assembly’ after the group marched through downtown Rochester
  • · Daniel Prude, 29, died of suffocation in police custody in March, but outrage ignited when new footage was released this week

Rochester First reports that the first few hours were filled with prayer and speeches, including one given by Daniel Prude’s brother, Joe.

As the massive crowed marched down avenues and streets, they chanted, ‘Daniel Prude!’

But as the group turned onto Court Street, they were met with a wall of law enforcement officers waiting.

‘Rochester police has deemed this an unlawful assembly,’ the officers shouted through mega phones at demonstrators. People who stayed behind would be arrested, authorities said.

See story: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8700321/Protesters-cause-diners-flee-panic-shut-restaurant-Rochester.html

So if you don’t give us our shit, we shut shit down. Well, did they shut down the DNC convention? I believe that answers any questions about it.

Can there be any doubt BLM is conducting violence? So we can stop listening to that lie.

Say the name….Riot!

Sick Man Walking

Now Obama will be known for something other than predator droning and a coup. He is the nastiest of former presidents, with unbridled vitriol.

So this makes me regret a whole bunch of things. Remember all those times that some conservatives preferred to bite their tongues, or refused to use certain language about Obama? Well, I would sure like a do over. It would have been more than appropriate considering the things Obama is saying now about Trump.

Face it, all of Obama’s speeches were laced in divisive rhetoric. But we know it was intentional because that’s his M/O and the way he is. Some people refused to admit back then that he was intentionally dividing, not unifying, America. It was no accident. But dividing is what he is all about. So many people in the Obama years refused to see what was plainly visible right in front of their faces. And he was rubbing their noses in it while they denied it. Now we know.

It’s just that once he achieved a divided America, he was going to blame us for the very divisions he caused anyway. That was the game. He was going to project all his faults on us. Now we see that was his plan. How Obama and his militants attacked anyone with the audacity to criticize him. Don’t dare besmirch Obama. Nice rules to the game!

Then he unleashes his trash mouth of vitriol on Trump, even after he ran a coup and tried to undermine democratic elections. ‘Oops, did I do that?’

I only wish people would have told that bastard what they thought of him at the time, and what he really was. Remember all those times people like McCain said no don’t call him a Muslim or criticize him. All the time Obama took shots at everyone else, all he did, but they didn’t respond in kind. Then any critics were attacked for daring to criticize him.

Remember how it worked? Can’t talk smack about the black man, no! There was a whole lot of denial in eight years about who and what he was. But apparently he is not through lecturing us yet, calling us names, or hating on America for that matter. What a sicko.

How many more years do we have to tolerate this charade and his partner in crime, Soros, wrecking the country with their radical agenda?

How Bad Is It For Dems? Backfire

This is the only DNC convention where it can happen remotely, and on another split screen you can watch the Demo-base celebrating in the streets of Portland or Chicago with fireworks, bricks and Molotov cocktails. But only on Fox News.

Not since 1968 has there been a convention this exciting.

Where Democrats can chip into Biden/Harris one minute and donate bail money for rioting thugs the next. What’s not to like about that? I think they covered all their bases.

If I hear their line once more that “it didn’t have to be this way,” I’m going to puke.

But how bad is it for Democrats these days? It’s so bad that even Demo-media comrades don’t want to show the rioting and looting palooza on TV. They’ve been blacking out BLM activities. (It would probably only incite more photogenic rioters.)

18 U.S. Code Section 2102. – Definitions (b)
As used in this chapter, the term “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.

So they’re self-censoring the riots and looting coverage. Why? Because at least they know how much it disgusts people and would reveal Democrats’ M/O. Nearly 3 months and the PR has only gotten worse not better. It’s so bad they refuse to show it.

I can tell you I’m not in line at Wal-Mart hearing lots of people say “if only I could be in Portland or Seattle rioting now.” It ain’t glamorous even to Democrats.

Yet these are the same commie thugs and criminals Democrat pols are defending as peaceful protestors. Show me ten Democrat protestors and I’ll show you a riot in the making. Give ‘em an hour and a half. And their networking capabilities are great.

But the Demo-media are complaining about Trump using the words nasty, mean or angry. Have you ever seen people more angry or hate-filled than this bunch of Democrat activists? Even back in the 60’s, The Resistance would have been a garage music band.

Weather Underground was more shadowy. These cats have the support of elected pols. Now sedition is the bell-bottoms of the 70’s. Rioting is the new sit-in. Blocking an interstate is the new street festival – peace out!. Anti-peace is the new activism. Injustice for all.

But it doesn’t look good to American people. Cheering them on is not attractive either.

So how do you piss off a Democrat? Viva La Flag! It works every time.

Race Theory Meets Political Theory

It is clear, Democrats are running purely on race or racism. But at some point that tank runs empty. Joe Biden at the top of the ticket isn’t the best message. They don’t care.

Democrats are so infatuated by race that it is all they can see. You could sell me on a lot of big problems with culture or our systems today but that is not at the top of my list, nor is it even in the top five. I would go along with systemic corruption in politics, I could go along with some disparities – controllable or not controllable – but race is not the qualifier.

If I hear constantly that the Constitution is old and that this is the 2000’s now, so we must view things in modern context, without looking back; then why is it necessary to frame everything, namely politically, in terms of slavery or racial perspectives? And yet the Constitution must be molded like some Play-Doh with no regard for original meaning. You cannot make coherent meanings based on nothing, with no foundation.

But we are well on our way to canceling out almost any hint of our history or Constitutional intent. Everything is up for grabs with only that one constant remaining: racism and the race card always applies, like a limitless credit card.

Wikipedia says in explaining Critical Race Theory:

“Critical race theory (CRT) is a theoretical framework in the social sciences, developed out of epistemic philosophy, that uses critical theory to examine society and culture as they relate to categorizations of race, law, and power. It began as a theoretical movement within American law schools in the mid- to late 1980s as a reworking of critical legal studies on race issues, and is loosely unified by two common themes. Firstly, CRT proposes that white supremacy and racial power are maintained over time, and in particular, that the law may play a role in this process. Secondly, CRT work has investigated the possibility of transforming the relationship between law and racial power, as well as pursuing a project of achieving racial emancipation and anti-subordination more broadly.”

But face it, these people – Democrats in particular – don’t want racial emancipation. They want “racial” dominance in all issues across society. It’s the biggest cultural and political contradiction I’ve ever seen. From Harvard to kindergarten, and DC to the suburbs.

So these people have been cooking up this concoction for decades. They’ve finally added every ingredient in the kitchen and garage. This potion is not good for what ails you; it is guaranteed to make you permanently sick whoever you are, whatever your pleasure.

Put it into politics as the all-encompassing, sole force and you get the ugliest, most divisive, polarizing toxin in the nation’s bloodstream. One that affects and infects every area of life in society. Identity politics is the chaser. There is no 2nd act, it is the entire show.

Next week promises to be the National Convention On Racism…. or is it of?

With Democrats, they are not like a box of chocolates ’cause you always know what you are going to get.

Tomorrow’s Leaders

One of the things that always intrigued me was the idea of tomorrow’s leaders. I remained on the optimistic side until the early 2000’s. Then the pessimism began to outweigh the positive thoughts. You can read any reasons into that you like.

At least I tried to be optimistic that our future would be in decent hands. I don’t know that I can say that too much anymore. It’s sad. That’s not to say our leaders have been all that great or wonderful. But my hope was tomorrow’s leaders would reach new goals and highs, much like science and technology advances. (realizing not all advances are good)

One can hope future leaders improve and learn from past errors. Even void of history.

Of course those lessons are harder when no one talks about or acknowledges those past errors. Or if they refuse to admit there were errors. Without that, it seems to me, we cannot learn to not repeat them. Another way to look at it is: if we learn that those errors were positive and we need to do more of it not less, then we seem doomed to failure. But that could make some people happy.

Nowadays I have to apologize for not generally being positive. There just seem to be so many negatives staring me in the face. That is being realistic about it. I still feel the hope for the country and all, far as that is possible. But the leadership, to me, is very much in question. I suppose there can be no guarantees. Maybe I would like to see more signs of positivity for the long run?

It seemed like a big dose of positive for the future just getting Trump into office. He more than accomplished my basic desires. I can’t list them but a huge one was to break the monopoly and shake up the system enough to change status quo. That was a help. With that, as I assumed, we got all the attacks we should have expected. But it got much worse than I expected. Okay, so that is only confirmation of how badly it needed it. I get that.

Then came the official, organized resistance and all the rest. Again, predictable. Though at some point you evaluate if we have made headway in the long run. It is hard to see it. Then what happens if and when we let up even for a second? You know. That is also why I am convinced in seeing it as evil. And it spreads.

I sure would like to feel more optimistic for the future in good hands. But I’m seeing that glass as half empty and that is not enough to repel the enemy within. Is it a matter of training? I don’t know. Maybe I am looking at it only from my small perspective.

In the end, I do have faith that God is in charge and He will see us through. But that does not prevent bad things from happening to us. We can cause problems. Technology improvements themselves can cause problems, too. It is not all good.

When it comes to leaders though, I sigh and ask ‘will these new ones have to learn things all over again?’ Does the whole sequence have to repeat itself? Can’t we build on what we know and not on what we don’t know? I ask those questions in confidence because I don’t always like the answers I get. What about cynicism, is that fashionable now?

That is just touching the surface and I could litter this with examples. But at this point, I don’t think they are necessary. One more question for the road. Maybe we never really took on the communist threat the way we should have – or seriously enough?

Evolution Of The Left

It is troubling how words and definitions of the Left change over time. For instance, the word liberal meant one thing at one time, then the left adopted it to soften the badgered progressive term. The word liberal so corrupted would never be the same.

Many of their terms do not mean what they once did. Their language evolved to suit their fancy. And people allowed it or we went along with it. We knew it but no one objected effectively. We all went on with it.

Here’s one of my own. A well-heeled liberal used to be one thing and now it is another thing entirely. It was a snobby liberal, usually a Democrat, who claimed to stand up for rights and working people but was caught up in institutionalized, ivory-tower hypocrisy. It was a dreamy person who thought they had the answers to all problems. The smart snobs.

Now a well-heeled leftist is not actually a liberal at all, in the traditional sense, but an anti-American zealot who’s only connection to working class is solidarity with socialism or communism. They only see working people as a political-power base.

Other than that, he or she has no relationship with working people.

Even apologizing for America is not good enough anymore. One must despise the roots of everything meaningful to American history or American identity. Doing so openly and loudly is the rule not the exception. They have posited everything in political disagreement is their enemy. Their duty is foisting that hatred on the rest of the country, until it all bends or conforms to their will. “Submit!”

We used to accept the well-heeled liberals as just wrong. Now Leftists have become the problem with almost everything because their ilk are embedded into every part of government or dysfunctional bureaucracy. But that is the nature of the modern radical.

Today there is no difference, politically, between the well-heeled Left and Democrats. They are collectively radicalized, organizationally or loosely, to oppose the foundations of the country. The US, and we, have become the problem and enemy to them. Anything that hurts the country they will support. A quick glance at recent hearings will confirm it. They do the bidding for violent protestors, BLM or antifa right in the US Capitol. Whatever constituency which sent them to DC is not even a distant concern.

But the fools may be those very people who did put them there and continue to keep them there. But the well-heeled certainly are not working for constituents or their interests. They have been cannibalized by the most radicalized elements in their party. Then the whole party base seems to follow them right down that hole.

So the two words that most offend me now are peaceful and protestors. That’s because those words have been so corrupted by leftists. Peaceful is not what we think it means and protestors do not fit a first amendment definition of protestors. They are revolutionaries. Willful marchers who do not know that are only fodder for their movement.

But I can play the language game, too. I’d like to rename them more appropriately. They are not really protestors; they are fauxtestors. Pretend protestors. Just as there is no truth to the peaceful adjective. When did terminology become so errant and controversial? Calling antifa, violence or looting “peaceful protestors” really takes the cake.

I’ll just call them fauxtestors and be done with it. They never evolve the other way.

Changing Times

There is a whole series of things that don’t add up, or make sense, in the way they used to.

We are now told by Democrats that the schools are not safe for our children.
Further, they tell us parents should refuse to send them to protect them.

In a local exercise in one town, the kids created a mural. Part of the design process in developing it asked each child to name one thing they hoped for. A fourth-grader said safety and security. Another older kid explained he hoped for a safer community, so they would not be afraid to walk the streets and just feel secure. And those two kids happened to be black. See any themes there?

That security could take some policing. But look at the defunding-abolishing police plans. How does that help? Wait a minute, police do not make the community unsafe. Yet we need to do away with them. How will that make us more safe and secure?

In fact, if safety and security are on the minds of kids, let’s also take cops or security guards out of the schools. That should make kids feel better and safer.

Schools are too unsafe and risky. But joining thousands of unknown, random protestors in the streets is encouraged. Peaceful protest is lighting buildings on fire; going to church threatens the community. Rioting is exempt from rules — for the good of the country.

Splitting up people walking on a beach is necessary, while marching shoulder to shoulder in the streets with protestors is protected and sanctified.

It used to be people stood at attention for the national anthem. But kneeling is now protocol. The flag and anthem used to be a symbol of pride, honor and respect — not the object of disdain. The flag is triggering. Kneeling at the flag or anthem used to be a form of protest, but today that is the symbol of conformity. Standing at attention is now protest.

Demand the economy be shutdown and remain closed, then complain about the unemployment rate and economy. How’s that make any sense?

You cannot risk going out to vote… but get out there and protest.

Let’s not forget protecting vulnerable nursing homes by forcing COVID-19 into them. That protects thousands of lives. Then blame nursing homes who were forced to take them.

In other news, Beijing Biden is all about creating jobs by destroying them in mass. That is called a progressive economic plan.

USA, we have a problem

Let’s break all this violence, protesting, rioting down to the least common denominator.
It is so basic even a grade-school kid can understand it

1) These mayors, governors and public officials got elected.
2) Then they swore an oath.
3) Now, either they can do the job or they can’t. Which is it?

If they cannot or will not do the job, then there is a big problem. The rioters and Antifa are now only part of this whole mess. The solution to violence is not defund or abolish police.

But it appears in some cases, despite the public outcriy and destruction, going on for months on end, that some of these elected officials cannot even be forced to do their jobs.

Now who is going to do his or her job?

It does not and cannot get any simpler than that.

Where Oh Where?

Everyone has heard of the Tunnels To Towers organization, the group that helps fallen and wounded first responders or vets with their housing or mortgage expense.

A great organization doing great work.

Well, in their ads are quotes from some of the soldiers they are helping. One line always grabs at me every time I hear it: “where do you go when home isn’t home anymore?”

Those powerful words hit me like a ton of bricks and I have no answer to the question. That is a wider question, too. Where do you go when home isn’t home anymore?

I know the context there but that is a profound thought and question worth consideration.

Right Ring | Bullright | © 2020

Malicious Intent Of Radicals

I will try to make this brief to the important point. There has been a lot of radical activity lately, what with protests, counter protests, antifa, rioting, doxxing, violence and the like. Most of it carries a pernicious theme. It is almost too much to take in at once.

However, we have some typical reactions to it, along with desensitizing ourselves to it all. We have mob behavior and then we have the reactions to it from Democrats. Enough has been said about Democrats sympathies toward Marxist radicals. They just can’t help themselves from aligning with radicals’ goals and agenda. You know birds of the feather.

But something else comes through, best exemplified in a recent comment from Judge Jeanine on her show. She was talking about all this and referred to the elected officials in Seattle saying “what are you stupid?” It would be easier if we could write all this off as Democrats’ stupidity in how they respond to lawless radical activity of the Left.

We can no longer afford to be that naïve to call them stupid. In many or most cases, they do know what they are doing. And often they have reasons for it . Those reasons are malicious in themselves. Democrats come out of the same radicalism that spawns these protests and riots. Civil disobedience is only a means. But it is way past “civil disobedience.” It is lawlessness.

Now contrast that all with what we see happening on a daily basis. Often the elected and Democrats appear to operate in concert with the thugs – or at least do things to encourage, enable or sympathize with them. This is not by accident.

See the problem is we want to attribute what officials do as being stupid. What if it isn’t? What if it all is intentional? Now that is the only way the whole thing makes sense. In other words, if they know exactly what they are doing. If so, then officials operate collaboratively. Why should we ignore the obvious or pretend otherwise? Because we don’t want to admit the real malicious intent behind what these elected officials are doing. But haven’t we seen enough to have our worst fears validated? I think we have.

Dan Bongino began posing such a question about the mayor of NYC, Bill De Blasio. (real name Warren Wilhelm Jr.) About all the stuff he is doing that harms NYC, he asked, what would someone do differently if they wanted to destroy the city? Nothing, he says. So they would do nothing differently if they intentionally wanted to destroy the city. Get it?

Everyone needs to ask themselves the question if he/she is one of those being naïve about motivations of these radicals? With radicals, it doesn’t matter much whether they are on the street or in government somewhere, same difference. They are serving the same ends.

It can be traced back to Obama politicizing government. So it doesn’t matter whether you are serving in it or outside protesting it. Both sides share the same aspirations. And that radical ideology (for lack of other word) is the same that drives the actions of both.

The real question then is why would we attribute ignorance or stupidity to leftists when they are quite aware of what they are doing, and the consequences of it? Seems pointless.

A current example: the husband and wife in St. Louis, Missouri who defended themselves by bearing arms outside their residence to a mob of protestors, threatening the homeowners on their own property. The prosecutor charged them for threatening “peaceful” protestors.

Judge Napolitano on Fox noted that both husband and wife are lawyers. He said maybe the Soros-funded prosecutor had not considered the charges she placed on them could affect their ability to practice law? But no, no! What if she knew and realized that? Additional harm to her targets? You see, it starts to make sense when you apply reasoning.

Why else would radicals do what they do but to cause intentional harm to their political opponents? It’s the only way it makes sense. Maybe wider damage is the whole purpose.

Another thing we must consider is that reform is antithetical to these radicals. Actually, the last thing they want is reform, in the end, if their real intent is to tear down the entire system. Reform is a much slower way to get to their goals. But they would even use reform (or abuse any reform process) to get their real goals, though that takes work.

In this way, it makes these people part of a larger insurrection hell bent on taking down our government and economic system to replace it with another, Marxist, socialistic system. Even socialism light is not enough for these people. Reform is way too moderate for them. They are more the hard-line Leftists, Marxists of the European flavor.

Closing argument.

Fox news host Tucker Carlson was a target of Leftist attacks and boycotts in the past. His home was vandalized and attacked, repeatedly, and he and his family were threatened. So finally he moved his family and voila, NYT has a piece in the breach to publish (doxx) his new location. Notice how intentional it all is to cause as much harm and inflict as much pain as they can. Ignorance? Not a chance. The Only thing remaining is malicious intent.

So what if we mis-attribute ignorant, naive intentions to Dems they don’t have or deserve? Now who is being stupid if we do that? So is there something wrong with instinctive reactions that play down the malicious objectives of radicals’ actions? Yes, sure is.

And to fight them, we should understand their motives. But we miss that mark when we attribute stupidity, ignorance, or naivete to their motivations. Can we just accept it?

So why would we want to disarm ourselves?
The only obvious question left then is: ‘are we serial deniers?’

Ode To Charlie Daniels

Here is sort of a tribute to Charlie Daniels by Charlie Daniels, in an interview with Pastor Allen Jackson. He did a bunch of interviews out there but I think this is one of his best.

So this is a smattering of Charlie.

“Never Look At The Empty Seats” by Charlie Daniels.

 

But there is an interesting thing. A few weeks before he passed, he wrote a piece on his Soap Box with a timely message on the state of things in our country. Here is a primer and the link. Check this one out. Now it seems even more pertinent.

Pick a Side

The time is swiftly coming in America when everybody who cares about having a future is going to have to pick a side.

When you get past the very thin patina of “peaceful” protest and look beyond the fallacy that violence and destruction brings about racial equality, you have to come to the conclusion that there is a radical fringe of people who would literally burn this country down, given the opportunity.

You’ll never hear it in the media, but if you’re willing to scratch the surface and dig a little bit, it will dawn on you that this is not a simple protest against the unjust killing of a black man, but a revolutionary street battle against America and everything we stand for and it IS funded and lead by socialist factions, and it’s not just in the US but in many democratic nations around the world.

In other words, an all-out socialist attack on our Republic.

I don’t remember a time in my 83 years when the cowardice, incompetence, indifference and downright impotence of governors, mayors and others responsible for the protection of citizens and their property have been more evident, disappointing and disgusting.

What’s going on in our nation is not a “Block Party” or a “Summer Of Love”…../

At the time, I thought he had put it all in perfect terms. Time to pick a side.

Well, the country is going to miss you, Charlie. Heaven must have called you home because you wouldn’t have left it any other way. RIP

Cancelled Then Or Now?

One pf the most famous post-founding speeches, delivered on a battlefield by Abraham Lincoln, declared the world will not long remember “what we say here,” but it “can never forget what they did here.”

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”Gettysburg Address, 1863.

Wait a minute there, are you telling me that was all a big lie and, at least until recently contested by Black Lives Mater anyway, is still a lie?

Again, I ask, I just wonder when and at what cause would the Left be proud of America? It’s a really simple question. What would it take, since they are not currently proud of America?

Price or cost of that anyone?

Lincoln went on to highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A new birth of freedom? But Leftists have criticized even the motivation for our country. Why would they believe Lincoln? That’s just more rhetoric propaganda to them.

How much different that speech would have been if it were a concession speech on a Confederate victory: “Sorry, boys, it was all in vain but I can assure you we tried.” But no, Lincoln referred to the birth of the country and this “new birth” – as a further consecration of that original dedication and purpose.

Now then, about this current state of our cultural affairs
.

Oh, Lincoln waited for Black Lives Matter to come along to call him out by correcting it all. He knew they would. Of course Lincoln was wrong and just did not do it the right way. The poor soldiers who fought the war, then, were highly misguided of the entire purpose.

So what do we have some 150 years later? The BLM movement. It has attracted a crowd of attention. People have allied with it and their perception. Just call them “the minders”.

Now what I see on the streets is a whole lot of people who signed on to BLM and have made a choice for which there is no recovery. Without hesitation, they’ve all gone lockstep with something that many probably don’t even understand. Mob rule is not pretty. They would rather have that than even democracy.

They have lent themselves to a revolution to rip this country apart. And they are about to reap the fruits of it. On one hand, the BLM dismisses what was done in the Civil War, while calling forth their own counter-revolution to undo the first revolution. Without giving much thought to the consequences of their action. On the other hand, they misinterpret the original conception of the country.

But Lincoln should have clarified that, to anyone hearing or reading it, both the intent of this nation and the civil war itself. One would think.

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.”

What he admitted there is that this was a test for the survival of that consecration. It was bloody. Now 150 years later, Leftists and the BLM are ripping away at it, asking if we can endure their mobocracy of disdain for it? Or will it too be cancelled in the end?

But then I think Lincoln knew something about the Cancel Culture.

Stealing America

Wake uo America, people are trying to steal your country out from under your feet. It requires brutal warning. But I don’t know if we’re all getting the message?

So while you are sitting on your couch, planning your next barbecue or doing repairs around the house, these people are out on the streets physically doing their best to steal this country. Never mind what plans they have for it. They are holding parts of it hostage against your will, using radical means or any means necessary. If they cannot pry it from its mooring they will bring it down around you. Then probably blame you for it,too.

But they are already part way there.

I can honestly admit I am not a certified source or expert on the subjects. I don’t claim to be. But I have closely followed what the Left has been doing for about 25 years, seeing myself the lies, the parsing, the bullshit denials they traffic in.

This is an insurgency, a seditious movement hell bent on taking the country over. I know, alarmists have said that for years. Yada yada yada. Don’t underestimate it based on those repetitious cries over decades. Some of those alsrmists had good intentions, though somewhat premature. They were not pushing conspiracy theories.

Now is for real. The enemy has their teeth sunk in to such an extent that it is bound to leave extensive permanent damage. Of course that is not only me but plenty of people saying it. However, I understand people are jaded and rhetoric-weary.

I developed a bias, too. I see people who are not alarmed about it because they’ve seen some unrest before, like many politicians, and just think protests and chaos will run their course in time. Many feel it all fades off.

But I got news for them, this is not all fading away any time soon, maybe never. They’ve gotten this far and they aren’t going to let go now. They are entrenched and see foundation weakness or cracks – even if we choose not to see them.

Once again, I’ll provide a couple separate examples — old and present, both true.

A few years ago a career police officer in the greater Seattle area wrote a column. He was also a lifelong Christian and very active member in the same local church for years. He brought his family up there. But he felt change getting worse in the community.

The hatred against cops had gotten so bad, plus the church was standing up with radicals, that he had to make a tough decision. First he took his concerns to the church leaders. It fell on deaf ears. So he had no choice but to resign from committees and remove his family from the church. It was no longer safe for him or his family. It hurt deeply. Now what we see with hatred of cops is nothing new. It has only gotten worse.

The second is on the east cost, last week. A police department decided to have a small, local support rally for officers and the department in view of the stressful times in a pandemic. It could also build community ties while having this “back the blue” type event.

BLM heard and immediately organized a large rally putting out the word for a protest. So police didn’t want any trouble and decided to cancel their event. But BLM showed up anyway and were mad because the police cancelled their event. BLM’s leader gave a list of grievances including canceling for fear of violence. They were offended demanding an apology and wanted police to show support for Black Lives Matters. Then sent it to City Hall. They demanded a response and statement of agreement with BLM.

There is no choice except agreeing with BLM. They demand you support them. If you don’t, they will attack anyone to force that pledge of support. This is devious and dangerous. The message is no one is allowed to even voice support for police. (local or otherwise) You get attacked for supporting the community structure.

We know the locally elected leaders don’t help any. In fact, they often cave to BLM which encourages more hostage taking. It empowers them.

One more, if you need a third. A mainline evangelical church has already sent out a few newsletters vowing their unity, support and solidarity with the BLM movement – aka standing up for equality against systemic racism. A lot of buzz words there, no?

That brings it full circle. Years back with the cop near Seattle, people said that is the radical Northwest. Some suggested he move his family, as it was too politically radical. But I said it was not just there. Some didn’t believe that. What was normal there is now becoming common everywhere. It didn’t take long. Look which side the momentum is on.

I am still discouraged by a lack of public concern about it. People see it more as a passing fad that will eventually fade. (like the occupy movement did?) But old Leftists never fade away, they just regroup and come back another day.

Now I am wondering if people are finally getting it? Do they take it seriously? Are they prepared to choose which side they are on? Because we already see others throwing in with the radicals like BLM, even if they don’t know what they are doing.

Me, I cannot ever side with cultural Marxism or pledge to support that. I don’t believe it is a Godly or just cause either. Does anyone think supporting them could have any influence on them? At the same time many churches refuse to show support for pro-life, yet they jump on-board with BLM. So I think it is time to steel America before it is stolen.

BLM Ties To Terrorism

Black Lives Matter fundraising handled by group with convicted terrorist on its board

by Jerry Dunleavy, Justice Department Reporter |  Washington Examiner
June 25, 2020

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter names a convicted cop killer as one of her heroes, and the BLM national organization is fiscally sponsored through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist.

Alicia Garza, one of three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter national organization, has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Susan Rosenberg, a member of the board of directors for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the intake of donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who, among other things, was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison. …/

BLM has ties to terrorism? I’m shocked. Good read and reminder.

What Will You Kneel To?

Well, after 4-5 years in the making, has it all come down to this kneeling thing? There sure is an obsession about it. I can’t resist stating but kneeling for all the wrong reasons.

It started with Colin Kaepernick, when we all watched the protest symbol of decades become taking a knee to the national anthem. It was poo-pooed as a real issue but then respected by some as a form of protest. And protest it was but against cops, America or most everything about it.

It made Kaepernick famous for all the wrong reasons. It pretty well outed him as the radical he was. And those socks didn’t help any.

So we went through this cosmic kabuki dance where we decided we didn’t need that celebrated for the political opinion that it is. Sure we could have respected his right to his own views and speech, but this was football and his job, not his own youtube video.

But then, like everything the left does, they have to keep on pushing it. Why is it just because he is in perpetual protest I should have to agree with him? I shouldn’t and that is the point. After all, I have my free speech too. That freedom becomes a problem.

That all seems to go upside down now.

Black Lives Matter came along and we knew what they were about. It was a radical outfit with views that did not represent all Americans. BLM chased people off the stage and screamed over people, interfering with their free speech for not repeating those words and endorsing BLM’s views. Even Bernie was targeted.

They claimed they were not a political group or party. They were called non-political. Now we know them for the highly political group they are. We argued, then, that they were a radical shill for Democrats. They denied it.

Since Kaepernick started off his protest by kneeling, what better thing to do than have everyone kneeling to BLM and a movement of radicals? Now of course, anyone who does not is shunned and branded a racist. How many people bowed down to Black Lives Matter? Do they know what they’re doing?

If you didn’t understand it before, everyone should now. It is a complete turn around. Company’s grovel at BLM’s feet sending them cash. For what we don’t even know? They can all pretend BLM has no political agenda. They can even pretend what this is about.

Where did BLM go to reform itself and change its radical ways? It didn’t, it didn’t have to. Seems everyone came to them. It’s now mainstream and everyone is cool with it. What changed was the people. They have accepted these political pariahs and misfits as the cats meow they are not. And everything is supposed to be perfectly fine with this picture?

Remember Tea Parties were shunned and branded extremists. The BLM who are extremists and radicals are mainstreamed. Welcome to Crazy Town. The population is growing fast but be quiet about your normal views or we’ll ask you to leave. Common sense will not be tolerated. Thinking for yourself is not allowed.

So they’ve made taking a knee normal and the proper thing to do. But it is also kneeling to an organization with Marxist roots and no allegiance to this country, or freedom.

It has an entirely anti-American agenda and political platform. It is a radical organization run by the same It doesn’t respect our process or accept our economic system. It wants to change all of it. Venezuela and Cuba are its models. They are hardliner Soviet-style Bolshevik revolutionaries in the style of Socialists, Maoists and communists. There is no room for freedom loving nationalists, in their view.

Take a knee to that, and them, I don’t think so.

Then again, in all of it kneeling for the wrong reasons. It isn’t even in protest anymore, It is kneeling in submission to a Marxist political movement. Since when do we do that? While we could be on our knees to God asking for help to oppose and resist this humanism plot.

First it was sit down and shut up, and now it is kneel down and submit.
Just curious what oath our elected officials swore to? And what do they kneel to?

Somewhere in the back of it all, Freedom Still Matters.

Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Word Salad

The dingbat Mayor Jenny Durkan, on planet Seattle, had an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on June 11th. Here is how it went. My comments below.

Chris Cuomo: “How long do you think Seattle and those few blocks look like this?”

Mayor Jenny Durkan: “I don’t know. We could have the summer of love.”

Cuomo: “Tell that to the police who are supposed to be in that precinct though. But I understand your sentiment mayor. I wish you well. We’ll stay on this story. You’ll always have this platform to talk about it.” [yada yada, nothing to see here]

Durkan: “Hey Chris. The police will be policing in there. I want to be very clear on that. Our chief of police was in there assessing today. We take public safety very seriously. We met with businesses and residents today. We don’t have to sacrifice public safety for First Amendment rights. Both can exist and we’ll make sure that both exist in Seattle.”

 
Here’s how an interview with Jenny should have gone:

Now wait a minute there, Mayor Dingy. Summer of Love is one thing but you also said you take public safety very seriously and that cops would be policing. It was designed as a cop-free zone — or didn’t you read the pamphlet?

It was their whole purpose to keep cops out and you moved them out of the precinct.

Then you said public safety and First Amendment rights can co-exist happily together. So what part of the First Amendment gives anyone a right to seize and occupy property? I can’t find that in there. That is not a right at all. They are occupying part of your city.

As to public safety, there has been no public safety there from the beginning. And who oversees this public safety of yours? Who is accountable for it? How about a title?

You are 0 for 2. 

Now I have to ask you a tough question, Mayor Jenny,  but what oath did you swear to? Were occupied territories in it? Were antonymous zones in there, or did you just create and annex them out of thin air? Sort of like that First Amendment you’ve been referring to?

If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s not a Cadillac — or a block party.

But then a decent and professional reporter/jouralist of any kind would have asked the Mayor those questions. Wouldn’t they?

Sickness In Seattle

Someone in Seattle has called the CHOP autonomous zone a peaceful occupation protest. Wait a minute. If there is any part of it that is an occupation, then it is not. When you are holding people or property against their legal will, can it still be called peaceful?

If a person goes into someone’s home and lays siege to it as a peaceful occupation — because he didn’t hurt someone in the process — does that make it right? Of course that is a siege, an illegitimate one. I suppose they can try to claim it is “peaceful.”

This is America for Pete’s sake.

But that is what the Left is doing. They are giving legitimacy to illegality. Oh sure, they could call it civil disobedience or whatever they want such as a protest. That doesn’t make it legal. So brand it a protest to give it all the legitimacy they need.

On the other hand, what is going on across the country is sedition. To call it anything else is just crackerjack. Not calling it that does not change what it is.

Then there were shootings in CHOP/CHAZ over the weekend. Details are sketchy because they refused to let cops in. One 19 year-old male was killed by a gunshot but it seems no investigation can be done. CHOP experts will investigate. Too bad for the victim.

By Monday, a statement comes from Council member Kshama Sawant calling the Seattle Seige a “peaceful Capitol Hill occupation.” There’s that inflammatory word, peaceful.

Here is what Attorney General Barr said:

“Protests and demonstrations are fine, but when they become mob violence we need to restore public order. We can’t be ruled by mobs, we have to be ruled by the legal process.”

“There’s obviously legitimate demonstrators out there raising concerns about police abuse. But, a lot of these demonstrations have been hijacked by, essentially, anarchistic groups and professional agitators who are really in it just for the violence and confrontation.”

But the minute legitimate protestors hijack or lay siege to property, it cannot legitimately be called peaceful. This all goes back to years of the occupy movement “protests.”.

Is occupation peaceful? By definition that is an oxymoron. Is lawlessness a protest?

Several things the Left are now experienced at are coups, sedition and occupations. But calling them other terms is laughable. Oh, and making lists of political demands.

 

Also the same council member suggested the shooting was a “right-wing attack.” Further, here is CHOP’s official statement about the “incident.” (only for referrence purposes)

Note: they are also calling for Mayor Jenny Durkan to resign. (emoticon that)
Voices of CHOP: “no organizations, protests, or revolutions are perfect ….”
