The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

I was having a conversation with some conservative friends about this whole "defund the police" thing and everyone was trying to imagine a country with no police, how would murders be solved, etc., and lots of snark about 'community workers' trying to stop crime.

But I think this misses the point.

Just because Antifa/BLM wants to "defund" the police doesn't mean they want to have no police. Or, more precisely, just because the Antifa/BLM wants to "defund" the police doesn't mean they want to have no *armed* police.

Just as the constant progressive caterwauling about gun control doesn't mean they don't want guns, rather, all it means is that they don't want *you* to have guns.

So when they say the want to "defund" the police, they just mean they want to defund the police as presently constituted. That is, they want to abolish the police force that enforces the law impartially and evenhandedly to protect the public so that there will be consequences to those who break it no matter who they are.

In religious terms, the laws that get enforced are some subset of the ten commandments. The size and content of the subset has varied over time, depending on historical and regional circumstances. But enforcement of this subset, whatever it is, has always been seen as a good thing in and of itself, and needs no further justification.

Not so with progressive legal theory, in which law is merely a tool to punish "out" groups and reward "in" groups.

Progressives consider the traditional philosophy of law enforcement to be retrograde, i.e. racist, sexist, protective only of white privilege, etc.

Again, this does not mean there's not going to be armed enforcement. There's going to be all sorts of armed enforcement, in fact, probably even more than there is now. The only difference is what is going to gets enforced. It will go something like this: groups in favor with progressives will be able to do whatever they want, loot, riot, murder, etc, and any opposition or protest by "out" groups, i.e the middle class, especially middle class whites, will be vigorously and ruthlessly suppressed. "Resistance" will no longer be cool. Rather, it will be seen as disloyal and subject to instant (and harsh) legal penalties.

We can see this, for example, by California's recent release murderers and rapists from prison supposedly due to covid-19 concerns. This is BS, of course. Violent criminals are useful to progressives because they are a low-cost army of "community outreachers" to terrorize the "out" groups. And, in case you were wondering, violent offenders will never be a progressive "out" group. It is no surprise that Trump got Nancy Pelosi sputtering about the "spark of humanity" in psychotic MS-13 gang murderers. Normal people want those jailed or deported. But Nancy doesn't, because her response to Trump was her recognition and acknowledgement that the MS-13 gang members are her peeps.

And the cells made empty by departing criminals will soon be filled with normal Americans who violate covid lockdown restrictions. Progressives are champing at the bit to do this. Prisons will say goodbye to rapists and murders and hello to construction workers, housewives, and John MacArthur.

I am reminded of the book A Clockwork Orange where some sort of change of government has taken place and prison officials are trying to ramp up usage of the accelerated 'rehabilitation' technique they've developed for violent offenders because they need to quickly get them out of prison to make room for "the politicals".

All the things we're afraid to do, that we've restrained ourselves from doing, the progressives will do, and have no compunctions about whatsoever. For example, as far as I'm concerned, I think the Portland police should start shooting rioters. They should make an announcement like this, "As of today, anyone who shows up at a protest wearing a mask, carrying a shield, a weapon of any kind, or throws a rock will be shot. The citizens of Portland feel that 78 days of rioting are enough."

Now, obviously, there are a ton of reasons why this can't be done. And that's fine. But if progressives gain the power that they want, the hypothetical use of deadly force I just spoke about will be used against us. And they won't bat an eye. They will think they're doing a good thing.

This is the future that we will be hurtling toward should Donald Trump lose in November.

Today's Edition Of The Morning Rant Is Brought To You By Gagh:

gagh 04.jpg

For those of you who aren't fans of Star Trek, "gagh" is a type of food eaten by Klingons, basically a dish or bowl of large, meaty worms, eaten raw. Naturally, over the years, fans of the show have concocted their own gagh recipes that can be used for Star Trek-themed parties, cosplay, and the like. Here is one I thought was interesting. It has you cook up a broth that your pour into drinking straws and the liquid gels as it cools and takes the shape of the straw.

45 That is correct; defund the police means to defund the people who currently enforce the law to be replaced by people who will destroy the patriarchy, the nuclear family, those who go to church, synogogue, or mosque, those who will not bend the knee, those who would defend themselves. You are already seeing this in the selective prosecution of the McCloskeys and the failure to charge the criminal animals who are rioting and looting. Our only hope is that the left started the militant part of their strategy too early, and there is still enough of America left to successfully resist them. COVID-19 is the crisis they have been waiting for. All of the dems who are shutting down their states/cities are attempting to destroy our liberty 'temporarily' so they will know how to do it permanently.

More strongly enforced policing. Imagine a world where every business, every neighborhood, every private entity with the means to protect itself (basic human rights). Now, imagine if antifags and BLMers show up there.

++++++++++++
There are relatively few America-loving schoolteachers. Remember, teachers are largely produced by colleges of education. Colleges of education are the lowest-tier programs at virtually institution, even worse than the J schools. They are populated, by and large, with incompetent, ideologically poisonous dull-normals (both students and staff) who take that unaltered into the world. There can never be a movement from within to reform education. The only way to possibly save it is to break the union, stack the board, and make it start raining pink slips until new people can improve it.

But I think it would be better to just do away with public education in general. Vouchers have their own perverse incentives, moral hazards and other problems - but I'll take it. State-owned education just needs to end.

92 They want to defund the police and replace them with their own armed insurgency, just like all dictatorships.

Its just like how they want to end mass incarceration, but will still incarcerating everyone for thought crimes the second they get back into power.

That's why if Trump wins he needs to play their game. Day 1 he needs to state that Antifa have one day to stop rioting, assaulting citizens and committing terrorist acts, on day 2 they get arrested enmass and tried on federal terrorism charges, their funders also should be pulled in for financing terrorism. Do to them what they'll happily do to us.

Somewhat related, I was out and about yesterday, enjoying God's country, and a van pulled in front of me, like a douchebag. Said douchebag had Rhode Island plates. My first thought, what the hell, they let anybody in this state, and my second thought was, that's a funny looking boat (how else would they get it off the island).

After a mile or so, the Rhoder pulled over and let me pass. I don't think I was driving all that menacingly, but I guess those island people aren't used to the ways of normal folk.

In countries that have gone down this path - most South and Central American countries at various times, Spain before it's civil war, many other examples - once the police are removed and effective law enforcement stops, then a wave of targeted assassinations from all sides begins. Even the hard core communists knew that you never *stop* law enforcement, you have to try to get control of it instead. That's what made the Nazi's so effective, they were very skilled at that.

148 I've been reading about free speech in America and noting the long historical consensus on the imperative of free expression. From the Founders down through every president and the great justices, the hallowed liberals, Hugo Black, Learned Hand, Thurgood Marshall, even every politician up to a certain point in modern times.

That is all gone.

When is the last time you heard a democrat or "liberal" justice rhapsodize on the glory and primacy of free speech, the need, the obligation to tolerate dissenting voices, even and especially opinions you hated?

The idea and beauty of free speech was imbued in the poetic soul and noetic nature of America.

No more, it seems.

Yeah. It reminds me of something that my brother said that has always stuck with me. I was driving him home in a 1994 Lincoln Town Car with eroded paint and that burned plenty of oil. There was a teacher's union demonstration strung along a mile or so of the main road. He rolled down the window to shout at them. Before he did that he said to me, "This will be fun. Watch how many of them yell at me for being a rich guy trying to starve them while I ride around in a Town Car."

I laughed at him and said, "This is a 20 year old car with crappy paint that burns oil."

Sure enough, someone did indeed say, in response to his comment that public schools should be defunded, "Says the guy in the Town Car! You're doing alright thanks to your public school!"

I asked him how he knew that would happen. He said to me, "These people are all intellectual children. They think in symbols and never go further than that. I'm in a Town Car.

In countries that have gone down this path - most South and Central American countries at various times, Spain before it's civil war, many other examples - once the police are removed and effective law enforcement stops, then a wave of targeted assassinations from all sides begins. Even the hard core communists knew that you never *stop* law enforcement, you have to try to get control of it instead. That's what made the Nazi's so effective, they were very skilled at that.

183 "... according to the movie Shadow Gate -- now on bitly because it is Hate Speech-- AI "enforcement." Posted by: shibumi

at the end they mention how sci-fi like RoboCop hint at some real life activity. imo the future of policing is AI watching our spending and internet activity, and probably assigning some sort of social credit score. Support for "hate groups" (anything Christian/White/RedPilled) becomes an actual crime ... or maybe just a shadow banning and/or black mark on your job application.


It would be lawfare with more teeth, and that probes more deeply into our internet history. They can already tell who the "problems" are ... they only target those that start to really make a difference ... like Millie Weaver, for instance. Or the True the Vote woman, visited by 5 fed agencies to be harassed ... for stopping vote cheating.


The problem is most people underestimate the power of such control .. but as we see DAs let rioters go free, but happily prosecute those that defend themselves (St. Louis couple for instance) ... the silencing of dissent for the majority becomes clear ... those that can't afford a million dollar lawsuit will tend to "behave". (Sturgis being an exception ... it is the rank and file that faces the daily oppression and tends to incrementally submit)

Andy Taylor was allowed to sheriff a town without a gun on his hip because Mayberry was full of people who respected the law. In a lawless Antifa-run city, there is no compact, there is no code for the basis of right and wrong -- which is why the minuscule CHAZ operated for mere hours before social order began to break down.

195 Revelation Time:

I have often wondered how media companies operate. It used to be: send out your reporter...reporter returns with a story...editor fine tunes...presto.

Now, it's different. It is now a world of grifters and prostitutes. Here we go:

Well connected financially well off party/individual with a goal contacts a third party broker (Use GPS Fusion as an example). The broker has a stable of reporters in various news outlets throughout the world. The broker determines which of those reporters to use in their clients goal, determines what coverage area they require and sets a price for the original client.

The price is paid, and the broker then formulates the specific content to be included in the blanket story. They determine the drop date. And, they determine what media entities drop when. For example, if it is a particularly murky story with few sources (or just made up)...they start with a disreputable entity and allow the more "reputable" media contacts to quote from that original piece. This bypasses due diligence and provides plausible deniability on poorly sourced (or totally made up topics).

In a way, outlets like the Bullwark are less egregious in that they are just representing the opinion of the party paying their bills out in the open. The truly egregious and deceitful parties are the "regular journalists" in the Main Media Outlets who do stories commissioned by self-interested well off parties who are never identified or discovered.

Want to know why the media outlets do thousands and thousands of stories negative to the current administration while their bottom line falls into the toilet? Well, there you go. Sure, there are the ideologues that would do it either way. But, I'm pretty sure a significant number of these stories are commissioned under the table by news brokers.

Personally, I think how the Soros Foundation operates. I think they've been doing it for years. And, I think some of these "reporters" are recruited throughout their careers to "make a little extra money on the side."

224 When I was a kid, my father had a boat. As I was the oldest of 3 girls and knew how to swim, I got to accompany my dad on the weekend forays to the lake house of a business friend. As my dad owned a bakery and worked nights and had to be available 24/7, these trips to the lake were treasured times. I do think this is a middle class, blue collar retreat from everyday hassles. To this day, I like nothing better than to be flying along in a fast boat.

Definition of a boat: A hole in the water into which one shovels money.

I have a 14' flat bottom with a 15 horse Yamaha. I've spent more on yearly registration than anything. It's as bare bones as you can get and it gets me off the bank, which was the intent and purpose of its purchase.
Boat was $750Outboard was $2,100 dealership delivered new in box.Gas tank was $45Anchor $15
Not ever going into salt water, runs up and down the Tennessee river anywhere a $50,000 bass boat will and can get into shallower creeks than they can.

236 Just returned from a fishing weekend in MI. Granted, this is anecdotal and from outside Grand Haven, a bright red area, but I lost count of the Trump signs (in front of houses, along the road, on boats, flying from pick-up trucks, on huge flagpoles on lake houses, etc.). I saw one Biden flag on a boat and one Biden sign in a front yard in downtown Grand Haven.

2 thoughts:

1 - It must be nice to live in a place where you can openly support your preferred political candidate without fear of having your property damaged.

2 - I felt slightly better about Trump's odds in MI after the trip

You are already seeing this in the selective prosecution of the McCloskeys and the failure to charge the criminal animals who are rioting and looting. Our only hope is that the left started the militant part of their strategy too early, and there is still enough of America left to successfully resist them.

Fascist prosecutors can prosecute anyone they want.

Doesn't mean they'll get a conviction, and even if they managed to get a conviction with a tainted St. Louis city jury, it would never stand on appeal.

So... defend yourself. If you think your life is in danger, don't go down without a fight. Chances are VERY good, even in a commie state, if you get a fair jury, you won't be convicted.

Because I'm afraid of going to prison for life and being labeled a 'fascist terrorist.' Thought I mentioned that.

That's why you don't see me writing 'tough guy' talk about shooting BLMs and Antifas: I can't cash that check, and neither can any of our other tough talking guys.

Look at how WE revile the Charlottesville guys. What was their offense: bad optics. Fashy haircuts and tiki torches. Big ass deal. What did they do that rises to the level of violence that BLM and Antifa employs? But still we revile guys WHO WERE ON OUR OWN SIDE.

293 That's why if Trump wins he needs to play their game. Day 1 he needs to state that Antifa have one day to stop rioting, assaulting citizens and committing terrorist acts, on day 2 they get arrested enmass and tried on federal terrorism charges, their funders also should be pulled in for financing terrorism. Do to them what they'll happily do to us.

That's a crossing of the Rubicon so to speak. Once engaged in such a way, you have to win and not by half measures. Doing to them what they'd do to us and not finishing the job makes it okay for them to do unto us. We've seen this in other parts of life for decades now.
So, if it ever comes to that, You. Have To. Win.

or die.

The hard truth is that our economy wasn't working for folks long before this crisis. It's why we can't just go back to the way things were - we have to build back better.

We've got to create an economy that works for everyone - not just the wealthy and well-connected.

A lot of the jokes were about her voice and heavy accent, which she plays up for comic effect. Very feminine while also being able to joke about it, which is why she was the highest paid woman on tv for years.

Posted by: Yo! at August 17, 2020 11:51 AM (GIeIM)


There used to be a place in Florida from where male boat owners could rent bikini girls to hang out on their boats for a few hours topless. Like if you were going on a fishing trip with a bunch of your buds, they would be sunning themselves on the deck. They weren't prostitutes, and I'm sure there had to be a 'do not touch rule' but you could look all you wanted.

299 'Doesn't mean they'll get a conviction, and even if they managed to get a conviction with a tainted St. Louis city jury, it would never stand on appeal.

So... defend yourself. If you think your life is in danger, don't go down without a fight. Chances are VERY good, even in a commie state, if you get a fair jury, you won't be convicted.'

There are huge costs involved in a criminal defense trial. And rolling the dice on getting a fair judge and jury is a bad bet.

305 > So, here is my question: if threatened in your car or your house, how does a person legally defend themselves without going to jail for defending themselves?

If the DAs are on the side of the criminals, the public may eventually wise up and take them out or drive them out. Then they can dispense justice as they see fit without fear of an unjust justice system. Of course, that will be true anarchy, but it will only last until the criminals and looters are eliminated or tamed. Most people would hunger for a restoration of law and order.

307 I am not sure about the laws on self defense. I just know that my hubby and I, and my range instructor have discussed defending life and property.

I, for myself, believe that I would not hurt anyone to save my property. Not even my house with my precious moments of my children and grandchildren. It just doesn't seem right to me to endanger another person's grandchild over stuff.

Now, if the person was threatening physical harm to me or any other person, well all bets are off. And I believe that is how these things usually go down.

You want my money, car, whatnot, fine. The minute you make a threatening move, however, all bets are off.

Or they would be if not for that tragic canoe accident.

No Trump boat parade for me.

It's all about timing. As long as Law Enforcement is still in place, then of course this is off the table. We speculate about what happens if Antifa gets what they want - for the record, I don't think they will. Also for the Record, I think the Charlottesville group got a raw deal, but their timing was terrible, and they had no support. That battle was lost, no point in expending energy trying to undo what cannot be undone.

312 193 When charges of looting are dropped for black looters, is that considered black privilege?
_____________

Of course not. There is no such thing as black privilege. It's a raaaaacist white construct. Just because blacks get special, race-based considerations in college admissions, job hiring, government-contract awards, etc., doesn't mean they're privileged. And just because nobody is allowed to point out blacks' super-high crime rates doesn't mean they're privileged. And just because nobody is allowed to criticize blacks' high welfare usage, promiscuity, high abortion rate, high drop-out rate, low graduation rate, high drug use, etc., doesn't mean they're privileged. And just because there is an orgy of non-stop hysterical media coverage anytime a black person is killed by a non-black person, in a country where blacks kill whites and blacks kill other blacks at a much higher rate than anybody non-white kills blacks, that's not black privilege.

There is a tenured psychology professor in Florida, a white gay man, who is currently being targeted (by students and the college administration) for daring to point out (on Twitter) some of the ways in which blacks are privileged in this country. Students have "protested" at his home, and the college is looking for ways to try to fire him for his hateful and racist speech. All because he had the temerity to speak some obvious truths that the left can't bear to hear.

If you remember back when Oblabla was running for Preezy, he made 6(?) interview youtube videos concerning various subjects and his opinion on what he'd like to do and accomplish.

And one of the videos concerned the military and the police.

In it Obama stated that he wanted to build an interior "army" of community organizers that would be as well-funded and as well-armed as the regular military and the police.

That is exactly what this is or, at least, what Soros, Obama, et al hope it will become.

I couldn't find the video but if it's still available, it is a real eye-opener.

I'm still surprised that he was elected after saying that. That's practically Mao 101.

Sad.

323 I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met in a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until my wife and I started having quarrels at home because I couldn't satisfy her in bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and I am 51 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that I was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when I read about a doctor called DR.Moses Buba. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.Moses Buba. I got the doctors Emailsbuba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she loves my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheats on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.Moses Buba, and I want to say a big thanks to the Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email buba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) OR WHATSAPP +2349060529305, you can even contact me to know my result or see it with your eye on whats-app or you can call me +886981036185 or
