Well I don't know about Taki, but I'm not going down without a fight, and I suspect there are millions like me. So go ahead and write off this country if you want, but a bunch of uneducated malcontents with more mouth than brains isn't going to ruin this country.

The Socialist mindset is always lurking in any society where there is a disparity in wealth and opportunity. The shock of the CCP pandemic attack and the accelerated impact it had on the job security of millions was a fertile field of resentment and envy that the Socialists sought to harvest using their long established playbook of "spontaneous" demonstrations and compliant media campaigns. Add to that the match that was lit by the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police and you have a perfect conditions for a fire storm of chaos and social upheaval. The left never wants to unite in a crisis, they see it as a chance to divide and conquer. All that is necessary for them to succeed is for good men who know what's really at stake to do nothing. Unfortunately, the good men are also blinded by their personal and political hatred of President Trump and they are willing to risk their own undoing just to get back at him for his victory in 2016.

What this pilgrim wants to know is when György Schwartz, his spawn and his craven coward sock puppets -including the Rotten Apple's commie mayor- are going to be designated terrorists, their assets seized, tried and convicted of sedition, and either disposed of with dispatch or Gitmoed for the rest of their miserable lives?

It’s not about man made political ethos! It’s a battle between the forces of good and those of evil! People’s hearts have been hardened as God has been removed from every aspect of America! We will not survive without his blessing and we must turn from our sin and seek his face through Jesus Christ. All else is folly!

FTA: “No whites in the Bronx,” screams an intimidating 6-foot-6 black BLM leader by the name of Hawk Newsome. “We don’t want white people in the Bronx, otherwise we’ll burn the place down.” OK, I'm fine with that. Let it devolve into the hell on earth that is depicted in "Escape from New York" for a while, and then, if the survivors what help, perhaps we can help them. Currently, these things only are happening in a few of the more insane cities, totally run by Demonrat Communists who are ordering the police back and supporting their antifa street thugs and BLM violent anarcho-Communists. Perhaps the national partition shown in Indian Country, the dystopian novel by Kurt Schlichter may be coming to pass sooner than we think. If it would contain this contagion of insane leftism, I'd go along. Lots of us WON'T agree to what these anarcho-Communsts want, but it seems like many folks in those cities and even their states, are just pleased as punch with their version of hell. Will NYC and Minneapolis and Chicago, and Portland and Seattle and California vote out these violent usurpers? Or will they continue to vote for more insanity, more violence?

Lots of on point comments, I like this from #2 -- " The left never wants to unite..." No they don't but they'll coerce and call it the same thing in service to the "greater good", six on one, half dozen of the other. Let's say they get their way election day, then what? They'll probably forget about us quickly as they scramble for the spoils and decimate one another. Who will be left to pick up the pieces? The people who can actually do things.

Posted by earlybird 7/13/2020 4:42:32 PM Post Reply
David French has written a deeply dishonest story today about the prosecution of Roger Stone, and how the commutation of his sentence by Pres. Trump doesn’t change the “facts” of the case. Well, if you’re looking for “facts”, David French’s “story” isn’t the place to start. “Mueller’s investigation revealed Stone’s contacts with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 during the 2016 campaign.” So, what did Mueller’s investigation “reveal” on this question? Not nearly as much as the repeated recitation of innuendo and guilt-by-association being passed off as “facts” in the media would lead you to believe. But that “innuendo” is what French seemingly relies on to form his views

The U.S. Army sent an email to its military and civilian members after the Fourth of July that included a graphic that claimed innocuous words and phrases like “colorblind,” “all lives matter” and the Trump Campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” are evidence of “white supremacy.” The graphic also listed “Celebration of Columbus Day,” the “Denial of White Privilege,” “Talking about ‘American Exceptionalism,’” and saying “There’s Only One Human Race” as behaviors that are indicative of white supremacy. After Army personnel brought the offensive email to the attention of a U.S. Congressman, the Army said the material was “unapproved” and sent out “in error.”

Why is it important to understand the duality of purpose for the appointment of the special counsel run by the figure-head (in name only) of Robert Mueller?……Because from the outset the seventeen Lawfare lawyers who formed the resistance unit operation took control over the DOJ. That was a large purpose of their installation. The Mueller resistance unit controlled everything, including every impediment to congress. Despite the fact they should have been aware of this, many individual Senators and congressional representatives now claim they had no idea of this purpose.

One of the biggest mistakes many people have made in their evaluation of Rod Rosenstein is separating him from the Special Counsel investigation run by Robert Mueller’s team of resistance lawyers. The reality is Rosenstein was always a willing active participant and co-dependent enabler.

Meghan Markle is learning: sometimes best friends make the worst enemies. Markle’s former bestie, Jessica Mulroney, is said to be “devastated” that the Duchess won’t talk to her and feels abandoned by her pal, according to a report in the Daily Mail. Even worse for Markle, Mulroney is contemplating writing a tell-all book about their time together in Canada, where Markle lived while filming the TV show “Suits.” The two fell out over the “White Privilege Scandal” — in which Mulroney sent black social media influencer Sasha Exeter a string of threatening messages and vowed to ruin her career after taking offense to an Exeter post.

The transcript from the body camera worn by J. Alexander Kueng shows clear evidence that George Floyd was suffering respiratory distress before police laid hands on him. He died from a Fentanyl overdose, not from being choked out by Minneapolis police.

Shenzhen New World Group, owned by Chinese billionaire Wei Huang, received the lump sum over two separate loans for hotels operating in Los Angeles.

Ashburn, Va.—Washington’s NFL team will get rid of the name ‘Redskins’ on Monday, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported. That came in the aftermath of prominent sponsors FedEx, Nike, PepsiCo and Bank of America asking the team to change the name.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

Many of the nation’s 3.5 million teachers found themselves feeling under siege this week as pressure from the White House, pediatricians and some parents to get back to physical classrooms intensified — even as the coronavirus rages across much of the country. On Friday, the teachers’ union in Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest district, demanded full-time remote learning when the academic year begins on Aug. 18, and called President Donald Trump’s push to reopen schools part of a “dangerous, anti-science agenda that puts the lives of our members, our students and our families at risk.” Teachers say crucial questions about

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

The Left’s “Boycott Goya” campaign to bully and silence Goya Food CEO Robert Unanue for praising President Trump has backfired in epic fashion after scores of Trump supporters launched their own counter-boycott called “Goya Buy-cott.” The “Buy-cott” campaign inspired countless Trump supporters to go to their local stores and buy up Goya olives, seasonings, beans, and frozen foods like it’s Christmas. In fact, Goya couldn’t have asked for better marketing if it had paid millions of dollars in prime-time TV and newspaper ads.

In a virtual town hall meeting on Zoom, AOC desperately tried to shift the blame for the alarming surge in shootings and murders in Democrat-run cities where police have been pulled back.
