Heavily armed civilians have been filmed protecting businesses in Kenosha after arsonists set buildings alight, torching much of the black business district Monday. In footage taken by a local reporter, a small group of men can be seen carrying rifles and wearing combat gear as they protect local shops. They deny they are part of a militia.(Snip) 'I'm on your side but you can't burn down your local businesses.' Another adds: 'We’re out here trying to protect residents, we’re trying to protect the innocent people and we’re trying to protect the businesses of the citizens out here.'

Allowing Marxists to control our schools was a grave mistake. Also, why does anyone bother to pay taxes when things are so far out of control that people have to defend themselves as if we live on a battlefield?

Oh yes, Jacob Blake, the gentle soul who was going to pre-med school, volunteering at a Jewish Hospice, tutoring school children in math and science and volunteering at the local food bank and homeless shelter, and who loves giving back to the community any way possible. Our hearts go out to him and we are wondering what the piece was under his seat he was reaching for. My bet it was a Sig, Glock, or Smith & Wesson 9mm. Betting pool anyone?

The only way these Riots will end is if the National Guard is allowed to shoot real bullets! It's time! Enough of these Thugs taking over cities all over the country. Burning businesses, looting stores and setting Police cars on Fire. It's time to take control of our country. I think Trump should tell the Governors he is sending in the Guard, like it or not, and they will be armed and if anyone throws bricks at them, they will be shot. Tell the Pansy Governors to get the word out because the Guard is done playing around with these people! It might be a fire fight, the "Peaceful Protesters" have guns and know how to use them, but the Guard also has guns, big ones and they also know how to use them better and faster, so get the women and children inside and lets have at it! I am so over this whole stinkin mess!

I saw a defense effort that I thought was very clever the media seems to by trying to conceal. 1. I saw people take up positions on rooftops, yes with sniper rifles. 2. But the best thing they had were less-than-lethal options: pellet guns and a pressure washer filled with some sort of mild acid. (I think pool or window cleaner, possibly with added insecticide.) The people getting sprayed started complaining about skin and eyes burning, then started puking. Funniest was some guy screaming "What are you gonna do?! Shoot me?" Then a guy popped him in the chest with a pellet gun. Doubt it broke the skin, but they started screaming "I've been shot!"

Cool. At least a couple look like they saved their Uncle Sugar issued gear from their last deployment to the sandgox and put their own AR15 into a similar config to their issue M4s. The arsonists probably aren't going to burn anything around there. And in response to the "are you going to shoot me?" incredulous question, the proper answer would be, "If you try to burn a building, YES. If you are actually peaceful, NO. YOUR CHOICE."

Has it ever been so clear exactly why the Founders, in their wisdom, created the Second Amendment? We have governors, mayors and police chiefs turning their backs on American citizens who are under attack by violent mobs. But they are not defenceless-- they can take up arms and defend themselves. It's interesting that we are even seeing the language of the Second Amendment playing out: militias are defending neighbourhoods and businesses. At this point they are mostly spontaneous formed, but as the violence continues, we will no doubt see "well regulated" (ie well trained) militias. And this enactment of the Second Amendment-- the Second Amendment come alive-- is what will ultimately end the riots. Let these thugs be met by heavily armed citizens who know how to use firearms, and are ready and willing to use lethal force to protect their homes and families, and the cowards will find other ways to spend their evenings.

He had a big curved knife in his hand against his shirt and, I'm told, he had 3 guns in the car. Also in the car were children, so he had 3 guns accessible to those children.

Kenosha, Wis.—A man was injured after attempting to protect a Kenosha mattress store before it burned down during violent protests Monday night, Aug. 24, a day after the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The man in his 70s was hurt while trying to stop people from burning the building down, but fire leveled the building and the longtime owners are angry and emotional. Pamela Moniz and her husband, Keith McCoy, watched as the building burned. "Is there words for it?" asked Keith. "The picture should say it all." The couple said their co-worker attempted to protect the building.

Here’s a shocking number: Democratic presidential candidates have received an average of nearly 90% of the Black vote for more than five decades. But why? Many Blacks live in big cities run by Democrats, and conditions there are pretty awful. What’s more, once Democrats get into the White House, they don’t deliver for the Black community. During the campaign, the candidates promise they’ll do a lot. Then when they win, they don’t. Every. Single. Time. And yet election after election, Blacks turn out in droves to support the Democratic candidate. It’s not like Republicans haven’t been trying to woo them.

The line stretched a quarter-mile before the sun was barely up Saturday, snaking around corners like bread lines in the 1930s. But the hungry in Queens are today’s New Yorkers, left jobless by the coronavirus. Until the pandemic struck the city, La Jornada food pantry used to hand out groceries to roughly 1,000 families a week. Now, the figure tops 10,000. And volunteers serve lunch every day to 1,000—many of them kids with growling stomachs.(Snip) Seniors, moms and kids, singles—many immigrants from China and Mexico—wait for hours. They turn out in droves wherever, and whenever, the food pantry’s truck shows up.

The National Guard was called in to quell fiery riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin—as protesters defied a curfew to loot and destroy a mostly black business area they are supposedly trying to defend following the police shooting of a local black man. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers summoned 125 members of the National Guard Monday after protesters set cars on fire, smashed windows and clashed with officers in riot gear Sunday after the shooting of Jacob Blake. But that and a dusk-to-dawn curfew did not stop the city from exploding once again on Monday night—with blazes set near the scene of Blake’s shooting

Manila—Philippine military officials say Muslim militants allied with the Islamic State group have set off a powerful motorcycle explosive followed by a suicide bombing that together killed 14 people, many of them soldiers. It was the worst extremist attack in the Philippines this year. A regional military commander says at least 75 soldiers, police and civilians were wounded in the midday attacks in southern Sulu province.

After looters crashed through his floor-to-ceiling windows and stole $1 million worth of booze in May, Chicago-Lake Liquors owner John Wolf wanted to protect himself from a repeat occurrence. Like property owners throughout the world, he wanted to install security shutters on the outside of his building. The investment would not only prevent rioters from entering his store, it would protect his windows—which cost $50,000 to replace. But Wolf ran into a big obstacle: The city of Minneapolis has barred security shutters on building exteriors since 2004. Unlike St. Paul, which allows external shutters as long as owners request a permit,

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,
