Why Do We 'Back the Blue' When They Won't Back Us?

Now that I've hooked you in with a provocative lead, let me add in a bit of nuance: Of course we should 'back the blue' insofar as the necessity of a well-run police force in our communities is maintained. Let's not 'defund' the police, and those cities that have climbed on that bandwagon (Seattle, Minneapolis to name two) are paying for it now in increased crime, and low morale among police officers.

But my point is, we need to never forget that the police are, first and foremost, agents of the state. Their first priority is to protect the interests of the state, not to secure your life, liberty or property. Oh, there may be a fair amount of overlap between these two things, but if they ever conflict, we, not the state that pays them, will be the ones who will not be served. Yes, I know that it is us who actually pay the police via our taxes, but our taxes get passed through so many hands before they are put into municipal paychecks that that point gets obscured.

In a sobering article from a few months ago, Angelo Codevilla wrote:

First, trust [the police] only insofar as you pay them, can hire and fire, or frighten them. Otherwise, realize that they will serve whomever pays them.

The justice system in Al Capone’s day served the Mob even though the cops and judges of the day were churchgoers and had been exposed to at least some moral scruples. Today’s justice system consists of people who know only sticks and carrots.

Second, take a lesson from those videos of the police standing aside. They didn’t protect the mobs simply because they were so ordered. They did it also because they were physically frightened by the mob’s use of a variety of weapons against them, as well as by the prospect of lawsuits and attacks on them and their families.

We watched the cities burn all summer, right? And this while the police stood around like potted plants, or ran away, or were otherwise nowhere to be found. We tell ourselves, "oh, the police *really wanted to* to stop the riots, but they were told to stand down, so they couldn't." Well, OK. So why is that, in all of the cities that burned this summer, *not one cop* defied the stand-down orders and started busting heads? Nobody wanted to be a hero. Not when they knew nobody had their backs and when even their homes and families might be in danger from antifa mobs. There's no evidence they really wanted to do anything at all except continue to get paid, and to go home at the end of the day in one piece.

Which is kind of what everyone wants, actually. Being human and all.

But what this means is that, ultimately, the police are not your friend. When you most need them, odds are they won't be there. Also, you'd better be real careful how you talk to them. And I'm talking about just the local constabulary, don't get me started on the FBI.

Having painted such a bleak picture, Codevilla's solution is for each community to to do its own policing, that is, establish "neighborhood watch" type patrols (presumably armed) that are directly responsible to the residents of the neighborhoods they patrol. I don't think I agree with this. It sounds good, but that's kind of how the mafia started in, what, the 18th century, right? You know, corrupt state, corrupt church, neither can be trusted, which resulted in families banding together and deciding to have nothing to do with either? Is this what we want? I'm not sure what the solution is, but it seems to me that Codevilla's has already been tried and found wanting.

I'll go back to the point I keep hammering on, and it is this: the reason we are in this situation is that for the most part, we have lost the most important government there is: self-government. If each on of us can't govern ourselves, can't control ourselves, no amount of external government is going to work. The founders of our country assumed that free, sovereign citizens would be able to do this, which is why they did not anticipate the need for much government at all. I wonder what the Federalist Papers debates would look like, what kind of government would the founders devise, if back then there were men sashaying around in dresses or assless chaps, whose passions were under no restraints and who believed that letting their freak flags fly was a virtue, not a vice.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com.


Prayer Requests:

9/30 – Coelacanth requests prayers for his son Cameron, for Godliness and clarity of thought and heart and purpose.
10/19 Update – Coelacanth sends thanks – they have seen a couple of small breakthroughs this last week.
12/9 Update – Coelacanth asks for prayers for forgiveness and an open heart and mind. A recent conversation with Cameron did not go well and he is refusing contact with them. Coelacanth’s wife is heartbroken.

10/7 – Lee Also requests prayers for her good friend who needs a lung transplant. He’s been on the list for a while, but it’s getting to the point where he needs it sooner than later. She also would like prayers for the family of the person whose untimely death will give life to her friend. They have lost someone they love. But their generosity will help her friend.
11/18 Update – Her friend has moved closer to the hospital, which means he’s up higher on the list. He’s getting rehab in preparation for the transplant, so keep praying for him, please. And prayers also for the family who lost a loved one and allowed their loved one’s organs to give new life to people like her friend.
12/23 Update – Her friend just got THE call. It may turn out that the lungs won’t be right, in which case, someone else will get them and he will have to wait. She requests prayers that her friend makes it through surgery successfully, and through recovery, and for the family of the donor, that they may have peace knowing that their generosity saved a life.

11/25 – Roxanne, Roxanne is in desperate need of prayer. She found out her husband of 10 years has been having an affair since March. They have two kids, a 5 year old and an 8 year old.

12/2 – Sgt. Mom is asking for prayers for her daughter and unborn grandson, Jamie. The Daughter Unit is 40, this is her first pregnancy, and because of her age, this is considered a high-risk pregnancy, with an elevated chance of Downs’ Syndrome for Jamie. They had an ultrasound this week and an amniocentesis is scheduled for the week of Christmas. The Daughter Unit will carry on with the pregnancy regardless – but prayers for a healthy, normal child are humbly requested.

12/2 – Tonypete asks for prayers for a wonderful gal that fell and whacked her head. There were pretty severe injuries initially, but she seems well on the way to recovery. Please pray for continued healing and getting back to her normal.

12/2 – Tonypete requests prayers of thanksgiving for Joyce. Her breast cancer was treated successfully with radiation only and chemo was not needed. No further signs are present, thank God.

12/9 – Roxxee asks for prayers for her daughter, who has developed a severe addiction to prescription Adderall, and is now in deep psychosis. She has cut herself off from family and friends and will not respond to any of them. Praying for a Christmas miracle that she wakes up from her psychosis and gets help.
1/4 Update – Roxxee reports: God works in mysterious ways. On the Tuesday before Christmas, her daughter’s mental health tragically deteriorated. However, this event enabled them to get her in a treatment facility where she is finally getting the intensive help she needs. Roxxee asks for continued prayers that the doctors help her and she is able to make a full recovery.

12/12 – Katya, the designated driver sends an update that she was in the ER with shortness of breath last weekend, and has found she has a blood clot in her lung now. The blood thinner she was on for the clot in her leg wasn’t doing the job, so she is giving herself injections twice a day of enoxaparin sodium. She feels good, mostly. She sends her thanks for prayers and support through her chemo treatments.
12/29 Update: Last week was her last chemo treatment. She still has 4 infusion treatments of Keytruda, which is the immunotherapy drug that is still in clinical trials in the US. She has an appointment on Wednesday with the surgeon to scheduler her mastectomy. She sends thanks for continued prayers and support.

12/22 – Homer’s Donuts asks for prayers for work. He was laid off on 12/22 with only a few days of notice, and it feels horrible not knowing when the next paycheck is going to come.

12/29 – NavyMom requests prayers for her family. Their daughter decided to cut NavyMom and her husband out of her life and her children’s lives. NavyMom’s husband is having lunch with her daughter’s fiancé on Wednesday, so prayers for the right words and hearts to be softened.
12/30 Update – NavyMom reports that the lunch went well, and they are hopeful that the divide can be healed. The next step will be lunch with their daughter. Prayers are still needed for hearts to continue to be softened. NavyMom sends her thanks!

12/29 – empire 1 asks for prayers for her husband, who recently died. She found him, and she probably could use some prayers, too.

12/30 – Prayers of healing are needed for Tikvah, who had part of her foot amputated today and requests prayers. She needs to stay totally off it for 6 weeks to heal.

12/30 – Fox2! requests prayers for his niece, VM, who is pregnant at a relatively high age for being prima (first birth).


For Healing:

11/29 – Pennsyltucky asks for prayers for complete healing from Covid.

11/30 – IronMikeGolf has had a hard time with Covid and was in the hospital. Prayers are needed for healing.

11/30 – AnnaPuma had a heart attack and a stent was put in. Prayers are requested for complete healing, and that the Veterans paperwork would go through smoothly.

11/30 – mpfs was having an 8-hour infusion to help with her MS. Prayers are asked for, that the symptoms would be much lessened.

12/10 - Jewells asks for prayers for her oldest daughter, who is experiencing horrible neck and
shoulder pain, which has now turned into nerve pain in her left arm and hand. She is on many medications now, and nothing is helping. She will begin PT and hopefully that will help.

12/16 – Mishdog requests prayers for his mother-in-law, who lives in Russia. She has had high blood pressure for a couple of years and has been taking medication for it. A few weeks ago, she had to call an ambulance because her BP was over 200, but they couldn’t take her to the hospital because their hospital was only taking Covid patients. She was finally admitted to the hospital last Saturday but didn’t see a doctor until Monday. Additionally, they do not have staff to look after her, so she must track her own BP, heart rate, medication, etc. Please pray for a solid diagnosis and treatment plan.

12/21 – Toad-O requests prayers for his mother, who has just tested positive for covid-19. She is 88 years old and in a nursing home.

12/23 – Notsothoreau requests prayers for Jesse in DC’s mom. They believe she has had a stroke. She is in the hospital and being transferred to the stroke unit. She is 94 and would appreciate prayers for healing.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com.

38 My theory is that our communities can actually manage crime pretty well without a police force. Contrary to popular depiction the Wild West wasn't all that lawless. There is risk and expense associated with maintaining a police force, with the risk side of the equation increasing dramatically in recent years.

I think I've lost all of that respect, and most of the fear, of the police now. I don't mind the local PD, though there are some dicks there. But I can't say I trust or respect the Seattle PD, especially the upper brass.

Keep a rifle in the car. Rifles and shotguns get respect.

53 479 I'm just a little tired of hearing about securing "future" elections. Why do people still believe? Do they actually clean up the voter rolls in between elections? No. At least not in Wi, where the usual gambit is to wait until after primaries are held to bring it up as a wedge issue, wait for the court decision that says there's not enough time before the general to do so, and so the issue remains for the next cycle.

Just like guns. Just like abortion. Just like any of the issues that could be resolved for good or ill, but resolved nonetheless. They are not because they are the issues that make the electorate think politicians are necessary and important. We need them to make sure the "other guys" don't win, and by golly the stalemate they've managed to win for us proves how valuable they are. So the issues never, ever, ever get solved. It's by design.

You wonder why both parties look at their voters with contempt? Well, at least one party throws their dogs a bone once in a while.

54 "...establish "neighborhood watch" type patrols (presumably armed) that are
directly responsible to the residents of the neighborhoods they patrol."
I agree with this. The police, paid by our little progressive city council, does nothing to prevent burglary, home invasion, etc. It's out of control (California). We have no other choice. The Mafia was established for the same reason.

56 Sort of willowed: I'm in Ohio. I have received letters from both my R Congressman and R Senator saying that there is NOTHING they can do about the Electoral College vote, it is absolute. However, election fraud in the future is something that is concerning. The R Congressman "Troy Balderson" also went on to say that IF there was fraud in this election, it was not enough to change the vote.

I started reading about the first Civil War when I was a teenager. Then all the Generals (with a few exceptions like Custer) were 'old' men in their 30's and 40's.

Now...only a few of the leaders, North or South, are younger than I am now.

68 The problem with neighborhood or "community" watch outfits is that the neighborhood is always a part of a city that is acting against them, with the force of the state. Italian neighborhoods in South Philly formed armed (with baseball bats) groups to protect the statue of Columbus, and that ended with them branded as racist vigilantes and the statue slated for the scrap heap.

However, they have now fixed those pesky glitches that count valid votes. Hums like a top now. Any and every pretense of fair and true voting is now officially over. Because now they can triumphantly change, add, subtract votes right in front of us with no regard.

219 On the subject of local police, some cities actively recruit bully-types. It's what they want. One of the worst examples is Independence, MO, my home town and Harry Truman's home town. The police in that city are horrible people.
I am a Truman fan. When he left D.C., he and Martha took the train home and no one saw them off. That tells you he wasn't 'one of them'. But when he got home to Independence, the welcoming crowd was there waiting. And he remained living in his modest Independence home until his death.

229 Took a short break from reading mysteries and checked out a book that caught my eye at the library, Frederick Brown's "The Embrace of Unreason, France 1914-1940." I don't like Brown's writing style or his way of organizing materials, but it's a depressing and illuminating read. By the 30's, France had fallen into such moral and political confusion that it's not hard at all to understand how the Germans were able to stroll right in in '40 and find plenty of willing collaborators. Plenty of frogs hated millions of their own countrymen (and not just the Jews) far worse by that point than they hated the Krauts. Can easily see the same happening here.

Start rolling over all the Traditonal IRA's and 401K's into Roths to protect your wealth from Beijing Biden and his henchmen. Do as much as you can tolerate this year (I'm moving 80-90 K at zero tax because CREDITS), and because the tax code is already set. Next year is up for grabs.

And the head of the Gestapo wasn't even a Nazi, just an old Good Cop who strongly believed that All Rules Must Be Followed. no matter what they are.

According to reliable sources, military intelligence is on Trump's side, and you'd think they'd have the goods on SOMEBODY by now, and start locking people up in dark holes SOMEWHERE. When Trump spoke yesterday, he spoke of things coming out over the next couple of weeks - sounds kind of late.

Maybe he's relying on Pence to send it back for investigation, or something, as if it hadn't already been investigated, with way more evidence than needed. He's not really going to do Jack, is he? Even though it would practically guarantee his succeeding Trump? Obviously, the Senate Republicans are co-conspirators in the steal, save a few.

278 I just want y'all to know that my family accounted for 3 republican votes in Gwinnett county. We did our part, all we could do.

I'm just so sorry for America, sorry for all of us and what I think is coming.

We are dealing with our own personal, ongoing tragedy now with my mother in hospice at home. She is slipping away day by day from last stage cancer and my superman dad who turned 80 a couple days ago is diligently and tirelessly taking care of her desperately focusing on all the medications, pain-killers and feeding machine to keep her going as long as possible because he can't stand the though of losing her. 53 years marriage.

But anyway, we are all experiencing a more generalized tragedy now and unfortunately it's going to get more personal for most of us I think. I suspect they are going to try for the slow-boiling frog method as long as they can.

Pray, but plan and be ready to act.

Rolling it over to gold and silver coins might be a wiser move.
Way ahead of you. Thats a good point though. I bought a lot when it eas cheaper and buried it here and there. I was always wary of those gold IRA's, where you don't have physical possession, its in a fucking depository somewhere, just waiting for Biden to pull a dick move like FDR did and outlaw gold. You know when the currency crashes , they'll be coming for the gold.
I think a currency crash is inevitable, so I'm buying trying to move it as tax free as possible and buying hard assets with it now (looking at real estate now)

And go back to what? The Mittens Romenemy wing? Look Trump was his own worst enemy sometimes, but he wasn't a politician and he got shit done. All against a media and social media culture that fought him every step of the way and a couple of bullshit nonstop Rrrrruuuussia pap smear. And yet he persisted. I am never going back to holdong my nose and voting for pieces of shit like Romenemy etc. The Repbulicant party can FOAD for all I care.

==================

Even Dems don't REALLY believe Biden got 82M votes.

Nobody's looking at the Biden election and trying to see how they can capture that magic. Nobody seriously thinks that Biden got 30% more people to get out and vote for him than Obama.

No politician really believes that you can have a Red Wave led by the POTUS candidate, and then lose, with a stellar record of achievement, and 20% more votes than last time - and that number's after millions were switched to Biden, and millions more simply trashed.

We may never know how big Trump won 2020, but it;s a good bet that it was Trump who legitimately had over 80M votes - certainly Biden didn't.

352 The situation is grim. It's a giant excrement sandwich and we're all going to take a big bite of it.

The garden of delights planned for us by our betters boggles the mind. Gun control? Yep. New Green Deal. Bet your $7 a gallon gasoline and mandatory EV policies. Reparations? Every black person in this country will get paid, but unlike with true reparations, they'll come back for more. And more. And more. The woke stuff is going to go off the deep end. Critical race theory will be the law of the land. Illegal immigrants will overrun the border and be granted instant citizenship, as long as they'll vote to keep the Uniparty in the power.

All of this because we can't properly administer free and fair elections. And the GOP squishes are shaking in their panties about ANTIFA coming to their houses. I'm sure a Night of the Long Knives ANTIFA/Burn Loot Murder event is headed to a nice GOP-voting suburb near you. The only people who'll be arrested will be those defending their lives in property. The goon squad will get off scot free.

As I said before, PRAY early and PRAY often. God is in control, but the ride is about to get a bit bumpy.

356 Re: Seizure of 401ks / IRAs -- note that any attempt to do this will be met by bloody resistance from the legal community. Lawyers self-fund their retirement accounts (and even big law firms typically don't have a match). The lawyers will go to war to stop it.
A different tactic (one that should be guarded against, IMO), is life insurance companies getting a government regulation requiring a portion of 401k proceeds to be invested in annuities for income preservation. Similarly, the government may try to require a portion of 401ks to be "invested" in government bonds, for the "good" of the beneficiary. These tricks are more likely to succeed than direct seizure of 401ks.

But without Trump, there would have been no Republican administration in 2016. Without Trump, we wouldn't know the extent of their theft machinery and as a result the takeover would have been silent and unnoticed.

The Republicans, like the Roman Empire, were dead already. Trump beat the horse vigorously enough to give the appearance of life. He tried to revive your lousy, ungrateful, corrupt, evil asses.

With timber prices being through the roof right now there are a lot of big-acreage opportunities to pick up for cheap. 30-50+ acres for $80-$100K because they've been cleared and the owners / timber companies just want to be rid of them now.

I wish I'd have dumped more of my liquid money in gold a few months ago. And, you still can't go wrong with precious metals.

Property is almost always good, especially in certain areas (like CA). At worse, you've got a place to live, and if you get a rental property (or 2), you've got a steady income. If you find good tenants, keep them, even if you could make more.

The one thing you shouldn't be doing is just sitting on it in the bank. It's losing value as we speak. Keep enough for emergencies if you do real estate.

They're always looking for excuses to NOT back candidates or causes, because they aren't pure enough; whereas leftists fall over one another to put the fortunes of themselves and their institutions into leftist causes, no matter what.

And look who wins. The people who sacrifice and will do anything to win.

You brag about being a fuckboy in their 40's which is sad and pathetic. True fuck boys happen in highschool and early college because real men are desirable at an early age because genes. we grow out of that bullshit in our 30's because we know it is unhealthy for society, women, and men.
You are a light weight in the public square and politics. Seriously, Congrats on the red pill rage you are experiencing in 2020. Been through that as a teenager and early 20's.

Posted by: Lady in Black at January 06, 2021 11:59 AM (O+I8R)

I may or may not have a similar amount coming in the future (family is very vague on this), and the only thing I can think of to do with it (if it is indeed coming) is to buy a house (assuming I don't get refused on my otherwise inability to finance without it).

My father will probably bitch that it should all go into the market, but seeing as it may be my only shot at buying a house...

Nothing that you own or have earned or handed down to you is safe in a socialist society. The state will tell you what to do with it if they don't just take it all away at once.
