If the verdict goes the "wrong way," count on peaceful attacks of BLM and Antifa mayhem to break out all over. No. I would not want to be that judge or for me or mine to have served on that jury.

Unless the NG is authorized to stop the rioting and looting, what's the point? We all know the minority in power are peaceful protesters, always on the wrong side. What chaos are they expecting? We let these fools do the same thing in the sixties, and look where it got US? From the ranks of those peaceful protesters will come the future government tyrants. The rioting, burning, and looting is simply their training ground; it's where they get their twisted bonafides.

Wisconsin can call up 10,000 National Guard troops but if they are told to stand down, what good are they? I doubt the Governor has the courage to do what is right. I am sure Antifa and BLM already have the pallets of bricks being delivered to various locations for their convenience when it gets dark. You probably can’t buy a black hoodie in the state either because they are all sold out. The serious rioting will begin as soon as the sun goes down. Democrats have enabled and supported this chaos and they expect return on their investment. They want this chaos to frighten us into submission. In a perfect world, thousands of Wisconsin’s would show up and stand against the lawless destruction that we all know is coming. If law enforcement won’t protect our communities, we have a responsibility to protect them ourselves or at least we did in the past. This is the crux of this trial. This administration is telling us in no uncertain terms that self defense is no longer a legitimate action when confronted with imminent danger. My heart goes out to Kyle Rittenhouse, and the good people of Kenosha. No one deserves what is surely coming.

#6. Ya know Mayor Daley did that once. There was supposed to be this big riot and he came out and said that the police were ordered to "shoot to kill" any rioters. It was the quietest evening in Chicago ever. Your thought works.

Someone should take down the "Racism kills" signs, as those who were shot in self-defense by Rittenhouse were all white. And it is telling, that MSNBC and CNN showed only the closing arguments for the Prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse and not the closing arguments for the Defense of Kyle Rittenhouse. Those two networks are so biased.

THIS is why the passengers, who watched and taped a women being raped by a naked illegal alien for 40 minutes on the SEPTA train in Philly, did nothing to help her. If anyone had tried to help her THEY would be in jail and tried and the illegal would have been set free to rape again. The criminal goes free in today's world and anyone who steps in and tries to help is put in jail, tried and sentenced and broke trying to defend themselves. According to the libs you are not allowed to defend yourself or help others. Criminals have all the rights in todays world.

Fingers crossed that the jury is sane and not intimidated. I saw the original video after it happened and believed it to be self defense. But watching the prosecution last night had my blood boiling. I've never seen so much second guessing and distortion in my life. Frankly, the prosecutors should be disbarred. I've pretty much lost faith in the judicial system, the government, our institutions and at least half of my fellow citizens. I have no confidence that the correct verdict will be reached.

Binger broke literally every safety protocol while handling the AR in the courtroom. 1. He did not personally check to see if there was a round in the chamber. 2. He waved it around not paying attention to where the muzzle was pointing. 3. He then aimed it at the jury. 4. He had his finger on the trigger. Sound like Alec Baldwin anyone?

I believe Mr. Rittenhouse made a major error by going to the Kenosha riot. Not because he didn't have the freedom to be there but because it was going to be a very volatile dangerous situation. BUT he defended himself which he has the right to do. Not guilty.

Rittenhouse had every right to be in Kenosha as the others there, I wouldn't have done it. With that thought you ask why bring a gun? He went to help secure business establishments what else would he use to secure and show force if someone wanted to loot or burn it down. That's what happened at the car sales places. Don't go if you don't bring a gun. For a very young man Rittenhouse showed much restraint before using his firearm to the detriment of the rioters who wanted to beat Rittenhouse 'for sport' they got what they deserved. That night was not a game the dead and wounded learned the hard way.

Of course, #27. ANY excuse to riot, burn and loot is a valid excuse. The parasite class can not resist such a good time and WE OWE THEM. Joe has not yet fulfilled his reparations promise. They are expecting to see NG troops stand in neat straight rows and do nothing but watch them while they carry out clothing, running shoes, big screens, makeup and everything else that is popular these days but one normally needs a job to be able to own such trinkets. Buses will be arriving with paid protesters from places where they had no idea where Wisconsin is.

Kyle Rittenhouse had every right to be there at that riot. He has family members in that community of Kenosha, like Grambo, his own father, and cousins. His own grandmother was there, packing heat in a holster. Hence the nickname Grambo. He was not the outsider the media and DA would like you to believe #18 and others. But then it was not in the media or DA's best interests to be honest about Kyle was it?

In a race that ain't even close, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is the most visible member of the Democratic Congress. No lawmaker has enjoyed more free airtime than the California congressman, despite his outright falsehoods about having definitive proof of Trump-Russia collusion. In a sane media world, Schiff would have been jettisoned to obscurity a long time ago. Any old-school television news producer would have declared Schiff as someone not credible, all while being incredibly predictable.

With the jury quietly tucked away deliberating Kyle Rittenhouse's fate, decorum outside the Wisconsin courthouse dissolved into angry protests on Tuesday with the arrival of BLM activists and Second Amendment enthusiasts. The jury has now begun deliberating whether or not to convict the teenage gunman, whose case has divided the nation. Rittenhouse, now 18, was 17 when he shot dead two white BLM protesters at a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last August, and injured a third. His lawyers say he was a scared boy acting in self-defense, eager to protect the town as it fell under siege from an angry mob.

The nation's top infectious disease expert says he believes the definition of being 'fully vaccinated' against COVID-19 in the U.S. could change to include booster shots. Currently, any American who has received both shots of the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, is considered fully vaccinated. But Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said this may need to change to include extra doses. 'In my opinion, boosters are ultimately going to become a part of the standard regimen and not just a bonus,' he told Axios on Tuesday.

The second-ranking general in the US military has sounded the alarm about China’s weapons development — warning that Beijing may soon have the capability to launch a surprise nuclear strike against America. “They look like a first-use weapon,” Gen. John Hyten, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told CBS News Tuesday. “That’s what those weapons look like to me.” (Snip) “From a technology perspective, it’s pretty impressive,” he said. “But Sputnik created a sense of urgency in the United States … The test on July 27 did not create that sense of urgency.

Is Joe Biden plotting with House Democrats to replace Kamala Harris? Sure looks that way, given some curious goings on reported by Fox News's straight-news congressional correspondent, Chad Pergram (snip) The Pergram report follows from another rumor just a day ago of a Biden plan to kick Harris upstairs: Rumors have circulated that Biden may even be considering nominating Harris for a Supreme Court seat if one becomes vacant so that he can select a new Vice President. (snip) What's significant about that is that Joe has decades of friendships, alliances, and honor-among-thieves relationships throughout Congress. Harris, by contrast, has few allies, given her self-serving and ambitious nature.
