"Conservative" Grifter Group "The Lincoln Project" Launches Anti-Confederate-Statues Fundraising Campaign In Middle of National Racial Riots

Hey, how about vandalizing these statutes, antifa? And burning down these buildings?

Isn't this a little provocative, in the midst of the current crisis?

Doesn't matter -- Rick Wilson and the cuckold clown George Conway need money and the only people that'll pay them are their leftist supporters.

91 Two New York Attorneys Arrested For Throwing Molotov Cocktail At Police

Jonathan Turley


Yesterday we discussed the four arrests associated with two attacks on New York police officers using Molotov cocktails. It is now being reported that one of the defendants arrested, Colinford Mattis, 32, is a furloughed Pryor Cashman associate. Mattis is a graduate of New York University and Princeton University. He was reportedly arrested with a second attorney in the attack. Mattis is accused of driving a van and passenger Urooj Rahman, 31, threw a Molotov cocktail. Rahman is reportedly a human rights lawyer but also recently lost her job.

snip~

They are now charged with causing damage by fire and explosives to a police vehicle. If convicted, each of them faces up to 20 years behind bars. There is a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years.

165 Yeah, let's erase history with the Magic Eraser.

A big part of the reconciliation after the end of the Civil War was the recognition that Confederate veterans were US military veterans, and the Army adopted a lot of Confederate generals names for bases.

Fort Bragg, for instance. (and Braxton Bragg was kind of a lousy field commander). And Fort Hood. etc., etc.

People get a good shine on what they think the Civil War was like, but once you read enough history and read between the lines, it was all pretty bad. At once a big adventure, and a real horrific shit show.

A real big story for the generals, a real shit show for the common soldier. Crappy food, disease, getting killed or maimed. What fun.

Tearing down statues is like burning books. And they think that they will erase history.

They say exactly what they want at their website - see the statement they had published in the NYT:

The 2020 general election, by every indication, will be about persuasion, with turnout expected to be at record highs. Our efforts are aimed at persuading enough disaffected conservatives, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in swing states and districts to help ensure a victory in the Electoral College and majorities that don't enable and abet Trump's violations of the constitution; even if that means Democrat control of the Senate and expansion of the Democratic majority in the House. . .

We look to Lincoln as our guide and inspiration. He understood the necessity of not just saving the Union, but also of knitting the nation back together spiritually as well as politically. But those wounds can be bound up only once the threat has been defeated. So, too, will our country have to knit itself back together after the scourge of Trumpism has been overcome.

187 What is the point of this?

Why are they dragging this up now, when it is not an issue?

Posted by: Lizzy at June 01, 2020 04:16 PM (bDqIh)

It has been an issue for five years now. It wasn't a national issue for the previous 150 years but yeah, they are not letting this go. I would guess sooner or later they will all be gone. They should protect the cemeteries and battlefields though, but who knows.

But I have seen George Washington commemorations taken down. I remember reading a large multitude of schools remove his name every year. What happens when they put Lincoln, Grant, and Sherman under the microscope? As the kids these days say, they will be problematic.

Eisenhower adored Lee, he put his bust in the Oval Office. I wonder if Ike statues will go down. The next big thing will be US Army bases. I could never recite them all but there is Fort Benning, Fort A.P. Hill, Ft. Bragg, Fort Polk, Fort Hood, Fort Jackson and the list goes on and on. The funny thing about that is the guys from the most famous forts were not very good generals. Lee is a tiny base as I recall. A soldier is proud of serving at Benning for example. No one equates it with the civil war but their modern service. No one there teaches about Benning, who was not so much.

I understand if this is a really a burning issue for some, I can't speak for them or fully understand their view. But I know for a fact that the vast majority didn't give a damn five years ago, they were told to care just like people in twitter are told to care about the grievance du jour.

My personal answer is to put up more monuments to freedom fighters and those who suffered under slavery, teach all the history. There might be exceptions, but I doubt many monuments to the CSA have been put up over the last many decades. Put up more monuments and teach more history. We need more real history in this nation, not less, if that is even possible.

205 Police: Rioters Set Fire to Home with Child Inside, Then Block Firefighters

You built this media and Obama and democrats

Now own it.

The chief of the Richmond, Virginia, police department said Sunday that rioters set fire to a multi-family home with a child inside while blocking access for firefighters to get through to save the child.
...

"They prohibited us from getting on scene," the police chief continued. "We had to force our way to make a clear path for the fire department."

Luckily, officers found a way to access the building, saving the child and the rest of the family.



Not only are the firefighters risking their lives going into burning buildings, but on top of that they have to deal with the feral subhumans while trying to do their jobs.

Get in touch with your neighbors. Set up call trees to notify each other of intruders. Think about how you can close off the neighborhood if needed, who has medical skills etc.

I posted this before in the ONT and Morning Report, but this is how you stop the riots. Minnesota screwed up every way they could, but are finally getting it right. President Trump is right. Minnesota proves it. OVERWHELMING FORCE!

-----------------------
My heart bleeds for the rest of the country.

It took us four days of screw ups to get it right here in Minnesota.

Up here in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, a quiet Sunday Night is followging a quiet Saturday night, which followed three complete flaming, looting shit shows in a row, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Why the change?
1. They declared a Curfew and Enforced it finally.
The declared a curfew Friday.
No one cared, no one obeyed it.
Just like the totally fucked up Thursday, Friday night had TRAFFIC JAMS around the big fires.
Idiots were out driving, biking, and walking around the rioters looting and burning.
The idiots blocked the fire department access and provided cover for the Criminals.
Saturday night they finally enforced the curfew and started scattering the mobs.
Sunday night they actually rounded up and arrested curfew breakers. They surrounded a crowd of about one hundred with 200-300 police. They took their time and let the curfew breakers settle down. They got the crowd to sit down, and then peacefully, respectfully took them into custody, one by one. No one got hurt, no one was disrespected, they all got sent to jail.
They did the same across Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
On Saturday and Sunday, they shutdown the freeways in Minneapolis and Saint Paul from 6 pm to 6am. The FREEWAYS!!!

2. They had enough people.
Wednesday and Thursday, The progressive Mayors of Minneapolis and SP tried to control the streets with just their own police and county sheriffs and were completely overwhelmed. Both cities were looted and burned.
Friday the governor stepped in with an extra 200 State Highway Patrol and 200, later 500 National Guard, but were again overwhelmed. Both cities were looted and burned. (See the trend?)
Finally Saturday Morning, Governor Walz called up the ENTIRE MINNESOTA NATIONAL GUARD!!!
He also called up all the state police, even the Department of Natural Resources Wardens. About 600 more police.
Saturday night they had 4100 National Guard out.
They blocked major intersections and bridges, isolating Antifa and the criminals from their targets and their get away routes.
They chased the rioters around so much, they couldn't cause trouble.
But they didn't arrest many.
Sunday Night with 7100 more National Guard, they started arresting anyone out after dark.
It was soooo quiet, the newscast which ran 24 hours a day for four days straight went to scheduled programs and infomercials.

3. The public got pissed off at the criminals and arsonists.
They started blocking off their own streets.
They yelled at anyone out after dark to go the f---k away!
The protesters out during the daytime emphasized they were peaceful.
They stopped the tagging.
They still did stupid shit like walking on the freeways.
Amazingly. When the Semi ran into the crowd, after they stopped it, a dozen protesters kept the driver from being beaten to death.
If the semi had pulled off the freeway or they only stayed off the freeways Sunday, it would have been almost a perfect day.

4. The Minneapolis and Saint Paul Police found a lot of Antifa "work cars."
Easy to spot, they had no license plates and had darkened windows.
They pulled them over, everyone bailed, sometimes they caught one or two.
The cars had demolition tools, and flammable materials, or rocks and bricks.
Now they are finding flammables and the like stashed in bushes near their targets, and are warning the public to look for them and report them.

My take is that she will divorce him when she can do it somewhat quietly. He comes across as a man who has no problem being a public spectacle even if their children become collateral damage.

There's a scene in The Fighting Sixty-Nineth where the National Guard Division is being formed up. On one side of the Division street, Regiments from the Northern states. On the other side, regiments from the Southern side.

The last time those regiments had met was on the field of battle, 1860-1865. On opposite sides.

The majority of law schools, IMO, are indoctrination centers. They only teach the constitution to point out how corrupt, racists, and unethical it is, and to devise ways to either work around it or remove it.

The inordinate amount of law school grads who neither practice law, or worse, go into politics supports my opinion.

it was part of the reconciliation that occurred but has been forgotten. Heck, Lee's home at Arlington is called a National Shrine by the US park service. If anyone doubts this, look it up. The Memorial Bridge goes basically from Arlington to the Lincoln Monument for a reason.

JFK was so enamored by the eternal flame at The Eternal Light Peace Memorial at Gettysburg, that his wife insisted he get an eternal flame.

I think that's the best approach, and easiest too since you only have to manage one sales channel. With Kindle Exclusive I think the royalty goes up to 70%, and then you get paid per page with their Kindle Unlimited program, so overall you wind up making just as much.

With Amazon Advertising you can expand your reach too with low cost campaigns, just a matter of targeting low cost keywords and poaching Kindle readers from the general publisher bigwigs.

Another option is Naviga / Zinio, though I think they're more magazine oriented. They'll do it all including converting the book to various formats to sell almost everywhere for a 50% rev share.

It was a battalion. The other American battalion was named after George Washington. Both part of 15th International Brigade. The Washingtons were amalgamated into the Lincolns after heavy losses at Brunete.

So hijacking American patriotism to serve Communism goes back at least to 1937.

I like how it goes unmentioned that roughly half of those "American" lives were Confederates. Who were pardoned after the war. And made full citizens again. And whose graves are now US war graves.

But we can't have statues honoring important figures from this momentous historical event, including ones depicting some of the greatest military minds this nation ever produced, because fatty blue hair's feelz hurt totes bad....

She said she understands why blacks believe they are being subjugated , because look at what they have been promised for years by the left/Democrats, and of which virtually none has come true. They are worse off today than they were in the 60's when the promise of the Great Society was foisted on them by LBJ and every subsequent Democrat.

I taught CITR to sophomores. I hadn't read it until a few months beforehand, and I was stunned that... the Baby Boomers seemed to have read it wrong. I thought maybe I was just relying on my own interpretation too much (that happens).

But my students identified right away that Holden Caulfield wasn't a rebel; he was depressed and trying to fit in. He kept talking about the phonies in the world, but he was also a phony and despised himself.

As I recall, he missed the funeral because he was in the hospital after injuring himself when he smashed the garage windows and punched the station wagon windows. My students figured it was one of those things he probably blamed himself for.

_________________

There was a Redskin a few years back who got shot in the leg during a burglary in his home (by some of his own homies). Bled out before the ambulance could get to his house.

It would be relatively difficult to shoot an approaching attacker in the calf, since it's a pretty small target. The thigh is bigger, but the chances of hitting an artery there are pretty good if you make the shot. And if you do hit the thigh artery, the person is going to be just as dead as if you hit them center mass, maybe more so, because some center mass shots don't kill.

Yeah I like smaller, personal stories more than big epic sweeping ones. That's why I truly enjoyed Conn Iggulden's books. He would take a huge, epic story over decades and nations and turn them into personal stories that you cared about and could identify with. It wasn't "here's Genghis Khan's battles and conquests" it was "here's Genghis Khan the person and why he did what he did, why it worked, and the effect it had on his people".

Lord of the Rings is amazing for what it is, but it works better than most epic fantasy because at its heart, its about Sam and Frodo.

599 Willow time for sure, but on-topic, the whole thing about effacing history and Confederate statues/changing street names marked an irreversible turn - steeply downward - in the country's culture. Few have much historical or international context or experience to even appreciate what this is.

Taliban is a contemporary, dramatic comparison, but actually understates how disgusting and sad it is.

Among the very good unique traits of the US has been something for which there's no good simple name, but which was represented by not obliterating everything to do with a major historical event, if the winning/"right" side was not involved.

Not restoring that particular bit of degradation, it's permanent.

Hammett published his earliest stories in the '20s, and was done with writing by 1935 or so, so he is more "early 20th." Chandler started in the mid-'30s and wrote his last in 1959, so he is more mid-century.

656 > Grant was an outstanding horseman also.

I remember one section of his autobiography where, as a junior officer, he was put in charge of the mules and wagons (this was during the Mexican-American War, I believe).

Two problems he had:

1) The mule dealers had sold "trained mules" to the Army that were nothing of the sort, but rather raw, unbroken mules.

2) Most of the men who claimed to be experienced teamsters were also nothing of the sort, but rather just guys who'd figured out that teamsters got to ride on a wagon rather than humping a heavy pack on foot.

Unbroken mules plus unskilled "teamsters": hilarity ensues. Something like eight guys with nooses around the mule's neck, strangling it into submission while it was hitched to the wagon, then, after the "teamster" had gotten on board, all eight of the men suddenly turning loose of the ropes.

Another bit was about one mule that was the bane of young Grant's existence. Just a completely worthless and vicious animal. The regs did not allow him to exchange it, but a careful reading revealed that he could get replacements for mules that had "run off".

Grant managed to imply, without actually admitting it, that he STRONGLY ENCOURAGED this mule to "run off".

Funny stuff, and some excellent writing.

Its not so much the .22 being underpowered that concerns me as the tendency to jam. It's probably on me to some extent for not understanding how to clean it better or making some fine adjustments to the ejection (may need some Dremel?) but it's just not reliable enough for a defense scenario.

yes.

A couple of years ago, I dropped someone off driving home from Seattle. When I entered the small road to the last dozen homes near or on Lake Wash waterfront, I was tailed by a local cop the entire few blocks, cop stopped and watched me drop off the two people that lived there, and followed me all the way back to the freeway.

It was nuts. My car was newer, clean, and I drove following all laws.

And I hated Lancelot before the book was even done, not to mention that slut Guenevere and her overdone make-up when he last saw her.

I preferred Odysseus because, although he slept with Circe, he kind of had to because she turned his men into pigs. Penelope wasn't a weak-willed slut, and she knew none of those suitors could hold a candle to her man.

He was also not a big drinker. He was one of those guys that just got really weird when he touched the stuff. It was likely a form of an alcohol allergy, it does happen.
