The Fools of Kenosha

Original Article

‘Fools rush in.” Three centuries after they were written, those words ring as true as ever. And nowhere are they as relevant at present as in the case of Kenosha, Wis. On Sunday, a black man named Jacob Blake was shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha after Blake refused to comply with his orders. The details of what happened remain murky. We know that the cops were called in response to a complaint by a woman who claimed that Blake had taken her keys; we know that there was a warrant out for Blake that cited sexual assault, trespassing, and disorderly conduct;

It is my understanding that it is a sexual assault of a 15-year old girl. I know there are Democrat-controlled areas that allowed the failed Obama policies of "look the other way" concerning criminals. Is that the case with Jacob Blake. No idea. I am wondering why he is allowed on the streets. We have created such toxic environments for the police that I am not going to judge this police officer's actions. I think it is failed policies all around. Kenosha was in the headlines after the George Floyd situation so I can only imagine that tempers are flaring. The Mayor of Kenosha is a Democrat and I don't give Democrat policies credibility. We have altered definitions of dirty cops and now it seems as if every cop is a dirty cop. Yet, we forget that they are human beings behind those badges. Oh sure, we can judge from the sidelines but given the actual situation, how would we react? Can't say. I do know this that Jacob Blake had a chance every day to rehabilitate his life but why should he? He is egged on by many individuals not to take responsibility or ownership of his criminal activity. A 15-year old? Sick.

Okay, so now I am not certain if the assault of a 15-year old girl by Jacob Blake is true. I read it in a previous article and do not know if it is credible. So I will revise my opinion. Sexual assault of any person at any age is unacceptable and sick.

America has sown to the wind, and is now reaping the whirlwind. Having raised at least one entire generation of black men in homes with no fathers, at least some of them (many?) are like Jacob Blake, men who have no morals and are so self-centered that they will not respond to authority. Not only had he sexually assaulted someone, but he then violated a court order to stay away from her by visiting her residence. For someone with his mindset, overwhelming force (in this case, several bullets) is the only authority to which he will respond. It should be no surprise that, after a lifestyle of debauchery and disobedience, he gets shot and killed while disobeying a cop. If the known facts are all we ever learn, then Jacob Blake got exactly what he deserved to get...just ask his victim of sexual assault.

As in almost every other case along these lines, it is not so much the people of the community who are "protesting" (and sometimes looting?) but outsiders, sometimes PAID outsiders (Can you say George Soros???????), in the case of Kenosha coming from Chicago and environs. And then we have the Democratic Mayors and Governors who refuse govt. help.........so in a way I DO (as a former Wisconsinite) blame the people of Kenosha and Wisconsin for voting these idiots ion just because they don't like Trump's personality....or because they ALWAYS vote Dem no matter what.

Here is an example of the misinformation we are up against. #2 son, far left, told me that the man shot by the police was at the address to break up a fight between two women - he was a peacemaker who was unarmed and innocent and was shot by the police because he was black. The level of misinformation on the left is astonishing.

It has been reported in the media that the three people that were shot by the 17 year old during the riots were all White men, at least one who hit the 17 year old over the head with a skate board immediately before the shooting started, and were convicted criminals who served time in the past. Additionally one of those criminals was videoed in possession of a hand gun which would have been unlawful for him to possess. Chances are those criminals were paid by entities or persons yet unidentified to take part in the riots, create as much violence as possible, and that they did not in reality give a hoot about Black Lives.

Jacob Blake and George Floyd are useful idiots, nothing more. Antifa was ready and waiting to create pre-election chaos and those two criminals served as triggers. Jacob's family need not worry that their son caused any more damage than what he did personally. The real martyrs in this national temper tantrum are the little children who were caught in the crossfire. Jacob's incident happened in Kenosha but it would have just as likely have occurred in any other democrat city where people are quick to kill each other over almost nothing. Drugs, girlfriends, insults, disrespectin' or whatever, we have within the United States a primitive culture that is failing at the process of civilized life. Donate all of the money you like to BLM, it won't change anything and will probably make it worse.

Only murky to the anti Trump crowd at NRO, only to them. The rest of us know what the guy did. He turned to reach into his vehicle for his weapon. When cops tell you stand still, you do not disobey that request. Given that the national nerves of the Police Profession are as tight as Elvis's pants right now, who can blame the cops for protecting themselves, and bystanders from crossfire bullets?

The largest tragedy here is that this is happening because the dems/media/Left believe they need the chaos to win the election. As desperately noted by Don Lemon, they now need to tone it down because there is a backlash building. Riots shouldn't stop because mindless riots, destruction, and assaults are bad for a free republic in general but because they might cost the dems some votes. This is yet another example of dem situational ethics. If it works in favor of dems "bad" things are "good". If they work against dems then "bad" things are "bad" and even "good" things can be "bad". As in this case, the dem responses pivot quickly as the situation changes. Situational ethics = NO ethics and THAT is the truth of the dem party. Not just foolish but extremely dangerous and destructive to society in general. The reality in this Country is that very few "unarmed" Blacks are killed by police. In fact, fewer today that when BO left office. When police kill someone, investigations at multiple levels are triggered. The majority of them correctly assign proper responsibility. Most police are eager to avoid a shooting but many situations that the public expects them to manage FOR US are dangerous and unpredictable. The low numbers of "unarmed" shooting is a testament to the success of most officers to avoid such an outcome. The proper response to such a shooting is a demand for accountability, which will probably happen anyway, and patience. The stoking of this as a campaign tool by the dems is reprehensible.

Both contracted the disease at long-term care facilities, but her mother in-law died at a hospital. New York apparently does not include cases like the mother-in-law’s in totaling up the nursing home death count. Thus, New York is under counting the number of deaths that arose at such facilities. Dean has long wanted to testify about New York state’s disastrous response to the coronavirus in nursing homes.

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers urged President Trump to call off his trip to Kenosha this week — fearing the president’s visit to the city will “only hinder our healing.” The governor made the plea in a Sunday letter, portraying Kenosha — where Jacob Blake, 29, was shot seven times by police on Aug. 23 — as a divided community that’s already on the mend. “I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state,” Evers wrote in his letter.

At least 175 people have been arrested during the recent civil unrest in Kenosha, Wis., with 104 having addresses listed outside of the city, according to numbers released by police on Sunday. The arrests were related to the protests that have occurred every night, and have sometimes turned into destructive rioting, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Aug. 23. Kenosha Police said in a media release that the arrests were from people located in 44 cities, although authorities didn't elaborate which states they came from. A total of 69 people were arrested for curfew violations.

If it were up to Joe Biden, the national shutdown implemented due to the coronavirus pandemic would never end. When he accepted the nomination for president on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, he promised that if elected, he would pass a federal mask mandate as part of his effort to defeat the virus. “It’s a patriotic duty,” he declared. Of course, Biden didn’t bother to elaborate on this proposed mandate or explain how his administration would enforce it — because he knows that such a heavy-handed restriction would be legally dubious and almost impossible to enforce.

As always, follow the money! Forgive my insensitivity, but what happened Thursday night at Citi Field was easier done than said because it was a matter of money. In this case, not much of it was at stake. And every person at or near the top of sports who publicly declares his or her support for Thursday’s Marlins-Mets race-based boycott is full of it. Whatever the issue or cause, it’s a lot easier to be righteous when there are no paying customers to send home. Timing was everything.

You can almost smell the sweat. The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden’s prospects. The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities. Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims. First, it’s President Trump’s fault. Second, it’s not that big of a wave. The first is patently absurd on its face. Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help. The blood is on their hands.

Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

San Jose’s bishop, Patrick McGrath, wrote a letter to his flock in which he said that Donald Trump’s complaint of a rigged system “borders on the seditious.” According to the Italian press, many of Pope Francis’s aides viewed Trump’s victory as a “bitter defeat.”

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.
