The BLM (NOT the Bureau of Land Management, although both foment illegal activity) seems to be engaged in using any hyperbole to start riot, criminal damage, you name it.
In the name of ‘give us what we are owed, because we are Black, and Whitey wronged us!’ Or something.
Most recently in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Because a police officer shot a Black man.
Here are Five More FACTS (courtesy of a Brock Townsend link):
1. The Officers at the Scene of the Shooting Were Wearing Body Cameras, the Mayor Says
2. A Loaded Gun Stolen From a Home During a Burglary Was Found After the Shooting
3. Smith’s Criminal Record, Which Police Called ‘Lengthy,’ Included a Misdemeanor Conviction for Carrying a Concealed Weapon & Traffic Offenses
4. The Shooting Sparked Unrest in Milwaukee That Led to Several Police Vehicles Being Damaged & Businesses Burned
5. A Friend Says Smith, a Victim of a Previous Shooting,’Was a Nice, Good Person’ Who Was ‘Really Respected’
Obviously, a fine young man. (/sarcasm font)
Is this a valid comparison?

More U.S. military personnel have been killed by Muslim members of the U.S.Armed Forces than Muslim U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq.Via Mike
Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient Captain Humayun Khan died heroically. But his exceptional courage in Iraq and his Muslim father’s post-Democratic convention histrionics on TV do not erase the security threat posed by killer warriors of Allah infiltrating our troops.
Don’t take my word for it. Ask all the forgotten Gold Star moms and dads who have lost their children because politically correct pushovers at the Pentagon looked the other way at the Muslim military menace.
Don’t take my word for it. Just re-read the ignored warnings issued by Muslim soldier Nidal Hasan, the vengeful mass murderer who gunned down 13 service members—including a pregnant private first class who lost her life and her child—and wounded more than 30 others at Fort Hood in 2009.

“We have a lot of people outside our house, yelling and shouting profanities,” he said. “I yelled at them, ‘Please leave the premises.’ They were showing a firearm, so I fired a warning shot and, uh, we got somebody that got hit.”
“Someone was shot?” the operator asked.
“Well, I don’t know if they were shot or not, ma’am,” he told her. “I fired my warning shot like I’m supposed to by law. They do have firearms, and I’m trying to protect myself and my family.”
This dude messed up by the numbers, killed a man, and wrecked his life and his family’s life, in addition to those of his victim and his victim’s family, all because he was stupid and believed a lot of the sort of BS self-defense advice you pick up from well-meaning ignorant morons in gun stores and on the internet.
Folks, self defense with a firearm is no joke. This is life and death stuff right here; it literally does not get more serious than that. With great power comes great accountability.
I’ve posted regarding the pollution, takeover, perversion ad infinitum ad nauseum of the Democratic Party (and other traditional movements, like the NAACP) by the progressives, socialists, communists, leftists, Marxists (whatever they’re calling themselves this week) many times.
But Free North Carolina posted exactly how it happened.
Capital Research Center (CRC), launched in 1984, is America’s investigative think tank focused on monitoring the center-left.
CRC lifts up the hood to expose how left-wing entities and donors operate to fundamentally transform American politics, and how they seek to consolidate government power while manipulating public opinion.
Scott Walter, the new president of CRC, sat down for this exclusive 26-minute video interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation and explained the Democrat party previously directed and controlled the left’s agenda and funding of all allied groups.
But much of this tactic has changed.More @ The Daily Caller

Communism did kill, Courtois and his fellow historians demonstrate, with ruthless efficiency: 25 million in Russia during the Bolshevik and Stalinist eras, perhaps 65 million in China under the eyes of Mao Zedong, 2 million in Cambodia, millions more Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America–an astonishingly high toll of victims. This freely expressed penchant for homicide, Courtois maintains, was no accident, but an integral trait of a philosophy, and a practical politics, that promised to erase class distinctions by erasing classes and the living humans that populated them.
Courtois and his contributors document Communism’s crimes in numbing detail, moving from country to country, revolution to revolution. The figures they offer will likely provoke argument, if not among cliometricians then among the ideologically inclined. So, too, will Courtois’s suggestion that those who hold Lenin, Trotsky, and Ho Chi Minh in anything other than contempt are dupes, witting or not, of a murderous school of thought–one that, while in retreat around the world, still has many adherents. A thought-provoking work of history and social criticism, The Black Book of Communism fully merits the broadest possible readership and discussion.@ Amazon
I know, I’m mostly preaching to the choir here. But with the constant bombardment of the so-called ‘facts’ wonderful lands like Zimbabwe and Venezuela show us…
I’ve friends who work ‘in the media’. They become annoyed with me when I criticize the media en mass, as though all were tentacles connected to the same head.
While I DO recognize that even some big media outlets offer disparate opinions, one does have to wonder about the editorial power being used…
Yale Students Tell English Profs: Too Many White Male Poets: Ill-prepared to take race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity coursesVia Billy
Some Yale University students are demanding changes to the English Department curriculum: specifically, they don’t think it should feature so many English poets who were straight, white, wealthy, and male.
“It is your responsibility as educators to listen to student voices,” the students wrote in a petition to the faculty. “We have spoken. We are speaking. Pay attention.”
The “Major English Poets” sequence, a mandatory two-course commitment for English majors, is particularly problematic, according to the students. These classes cover Geoffrey Chaucer, Edmund Spenser, William Shakespeare, John Donne, John Milton, Alexander Pope, William Wordsworth, and T.S. Eliot. It’s not the most diverse line up, to be sure, but it’s the one that best reflects history the way it actually happened. Inarguably, these are the most influential poets in the English language.
But students think this sequence “creates a culture that is hostile to students of color.”More @ Reasonh/t Brock Townsend

For the first time, a federal judge has suppressed evidence obtained without a warrant by U.S. law enforcement using a stingray, a surveillance device that can trick suspects’ cell phones into revealing their locations.
U.S. District Judge William Pauley in Manhattan on Tuesday ruled that defendant Raymond Lambis’ rights were violated when the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration used such a device without a warrant to find his Washington Heights apartment.
The DEA had used a stingray to identify Lambis’ apartment as the most likely location of a cell phone identified during a drug-trafficking probe. Pauley said doing so constituted an unreasonable search.

What more can be said regarding the terrorist attack in the South of France? What do we know? A Tunisian emigre, armed with one pistol, two fake assault rifles. And a fake grenade. And a truck. Chose to use the 19 ton refrigerated truck as an ‘assault vehicle’.
84 dead, another 202 injured.
And while he didn’t use either the real or fake weaponry, in largely gun-prohibited France, it took the usual solution – a call to the men with guns to stop the terrorist.
ISIS claimed responsibility.
I see two solutions here. One short term, and a second longer.
AND, promote doing the same in all other nations, including the United States!
Before it is too late.
Of course, this will never happen. Especially here, where illegal aliens make up as much as 33% of the service industry work force.
I heard on the ‘news’ the other night that one-half of one percent (0.5%) of Islamic folk are estimated to be radicalized. This translates to one million people World-wide!
Imagine if this were a regular army?
Instead, they are agents-provocateurs (agents of change – outside agitators in the very least)! Community Organizers?
Saboteurs and terrorists.
Free people need to be able to defend themselves. Period.

July 15, for the un-Shakespearean…

The hacktivist group Anonymous is now calling for nationwide Day of Rage protests on Friday, July 15th. The video below promotes the protests.(WARNING: There is some disturbing and graphic violence in this video):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEWtsSffvQg [About 5 ½ minutes; it isn’t necessary to watch it for purposes of the warning being given].Use this as a list of places NOT to be on Friday the 15th. While the video by Anonymous does specify non-violence and denounces the actions taken against police officers that were not involved in these deaths, with the tagline “Day of Rage” I think it’s safe to expect emotions to be running very high on both sides of the line. No matter how great your empathy might be for those who have unjustly lost their lives, these protests are not safe places to be.These are the locations and times for the protests:Phoenix: 5:00PM (EASTLAKE PARK, 1549 E Jefferson St , Phoenix, AZ 85034)Tucson: 5:00PM (CATALINA PARK, 900 N 4th Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85705)Little Rock: 6:00PM (OUTSIDE STATE CAPITOL BUILDING, Dr Martin Luther King Jr Dr., Little Rock, AR 72201)San Francisco: 4:00PM (CIVIC CENTER PLAZA, 355 Mcallister St, San Francisco, California 94102)Oakland: 4:00PM (FRANK OGAWA PLAZA, 1 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612)Los Angeles: 4:00PM (LEIMERT PLAZA PARK, 4395 Leimert Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90008)Denver: 5:00PM (CIVIC CENTER PARK, 100 W 14th Ave Pkwy, Denver, Colorado 80204)Washington DC: 7:00PM (OUTSIDE WHITE HOUSE, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20500)Atlanta: 7:00PM (OLD DECATUR COURTHOUSE, 101 E Court Sq, Decatur, GA 30030)Tampa: 7:00PM (OUTSIDE HILLSBOROUGH COURTHOUSE, 800 E Twiggs St, Tampa, FL)Orlando: 7:00PM (LAKE EOLA PARK, 195 N Rosalind Ave, Orlando, Florida 32801)Miami: 7:00PM (GWEN CHERRY PARK, NW 71 St., Miami, Florida, 33147)Chicago: 6:00PM (RICHARD J DALEY CENTER, 50 W Washington St, Chicago, Illinois 60602)Des Moines: 6:00PM (IOWA STATE CAPITOL, 1007 E Grand Ave, Des Moines, IA 50319)New Orleans: 6:00PM (LAFAYETTE SQUARE, New Orleans, LA 70130)Baltimore: 7:00PM (201 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202)Boston: 7:00PM (MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE, 24 Beacon St, Boston, MA 01233)Detroit: 7:00PM (Campus Martius Park, Detroit, Michigan 48226)Lansing: 7:00PM (STATE CAPITOL BUILDING, Capitol Avenue at Michigan Avenue, Lansing, MI 48933)Ann Arbor: 7:00PM (THE DIAG, Burns Park, Ann Arbor, MI 48109)Minneapolis: 6:00PM (MINNEAPOLIS URBAN LEAGUE, 2100 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55411St. Louis: 6:00PM (GATEWAY ARCH, St. Louis 63102)Carson City: 4:00PM (NEVADA STATE CAPITOL BUILDING, 101 N Carson St, Carson City, Nevada 89701)Manhattan, NY: 7:00PM (TIMES SQUARE, Manhattan, NY, 10036)Newark: 7:00PM (NEWARK CITY HALL, 920 Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey 07102)Durham: 7:00PM (200 E.

Make plans to stay safe and hunker down with emergency food and purified water, or to go someplace safer.
Now, I truly hope these events turn into a big ‘so what-who cares’, and no one shows up! But, given the attitude de BLM (as reported ad nauseum) it might be wise to avoid these areas and nearby neighborhoods.
I’m all about the right to protest (a fine American tradition!), but given recent events, the suggestion this is about incitement to riot and not peaceful protest is rather obvious.
And I’m too old and infirmed to be in the middle of a race riot and possible assaults on police.
