Editor's Note: Graphic Language A black woman in Chicago filmed a Facebook live video of armed citizens defending local businesses. According to the woman, people should be allowed to loot stores because they're already insured. "They let these people come outside with they AK-47s. Ak-47s to protect they stuff from black people. They ready to kill black people, the Arabs, the fake a** Ramadan mother f**kers. They got M-16s, AK with they people's out here. Everything y'all. Look at this s**t," she said, flipping the camera to a nearby store. "They got mother f**kin' AKs out here and I'm going to get my cousin that's a police officer right now

She rips on the armed men for "protecting their material sh*t". This would be the same "sh*t" she feels entitled to steal. The thinking is so morally vacuous and irrational that I can't even start to get my head around it. How many like this are there? We are in trouble here. I wonder where they learned to "think" like this.....

She has given us a colorful narrative: No manners, zero refinement, zero empathy for others, 100% ghetto trash, churned out babies by transient sperm donors, no religious bearings whatsoever, no morals, zilch. A complete waste of oxygen. How does anyone in his right mind communicate with that?

So, when you hear that there were 18 or 20 shootings in Chicago over a weekend.....think of this woman and the probably 6 or 8 kids she has brought into the world and taught to "reason" just like she does.

I find it quite interesting how the "Armed Koreans protecting their stores" thing has become a "known fact" and accepted, often referred to in media. The implication is that there were some Koreans who used guns to protect their stores effectively. One might imagine Korean shop owners mowing down marauding bands of looters. THAT part never happened. Fortunately, better than the majority of these sort of urban stories, there is a LARGE kernel of truth to this one. I happened to be in LA during the King riots, and watched lots of local TV and read the local papers for several days before my flight home. And that piqued my interest and I spent time afterwards reading a lot about it, in gun-related publications and the standard sources. The key point that some may not know, which does not in any way invalidate the basically true story, is that from what I was able to gather at the time, these Korean store owners had TOY AR-15s, not real guns. They patrolled from their store rooftops, and therefore were visibly armed, and did warn some looters away, but of course, no shots were fired and nobody harmed with their plastic toys. But the threat of the ability to effectively protect their stores was enough. I always wondered if this would work at ground level where the 'fake gun' nature might be figured out at closer visual range. On the roof nobody will get closer than 20-30 feet, where the better plastic ones are pretty convincing, pretty well impossible to tell from the real thing. More power to the Korean businessmen and their toy AR's .

She is crazy, but she isn't stupid. At the core of her insanity she has the utmost respect for the AK-47 rifles she sees. Screaming and swearing but she will NOT take one step out of the car toward those blankity blank AK-47s. And the worthless cops won't help her disarm those Arabs so she can loot and then burn their stores for cheap stuff from China. All of that makes perfect sense to her. Only in America could such a mental defective have the time to drive around in a nice car and complain about not being able to loot. You don't reason with a rabid animal. You prepare to fight or die a painful death.

Several prominent liberal groups are joining the push by some Democrats to expand the Supreme Court to eleven justices, a move designed to eliminate the Court’s current 5-4 conservative majority. An open letter signed by several organizations backs a plan to expand the Court to eleven members: The activist conservatives who control the Supreme Court are poised to trample existing rights, from reproductive freedom to LGBTQ rights — and to block any significant progressive legislation in the future on urgent crises from climate change to health care to gun safety.

Black Lives Matter is a political advocacy group, “[f]ounded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer,” according to the group’s website. Never mind that the George Zimmerman trial was a complete fraud, as Joel Gilbert brilliantly explained in his recent book and movie, “The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America.” BLM is a self-described global network, which explains why protests and riots sprang up seemingly spontaneously all over the world after George Floyd’s death. Starting in Minneapolis, protests quickly spread to far off locales including New Zealand, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. On their website, BLM states that they, “practice empathy.”

The recent turmoil that has gripped our nation in the form of riots, looting, arson, and other criminal acts is another reason why President Trump will be re-elected in a landslide. When you look across our country and see masked marauders beating store-owners unmercifully because they were trying to save their businesses, and there are no cops in sight to protect them, you know that liberals are in charge in those places. When you see news clips of rioters roaming through commercial districts in large cities, ripping down storefronts, pillaging the contents, and running off with flat-screen TVs on their shoulders,

Not since making rubble bounce in Baghdad as a captain in the 101st Airborne has Cotton kindled so much chaos in the heart of an enemy.

"El Nuevo Metodo de Votar." The year was 1993. Control of the Pennsylvania state Senate turned on a special election in Philadelphia. Although the district was heavily Democratic, the Republican was running a strong campaign, with organized labor and minority support.
