Judge in Kyle Rittenhouse case properly rules that while Rittenhouse's defense team is permitted to call the rioters and looters "rioters and looters," the prosecution is not permitted to call them "victims." Which I guess is the entire question for the jury.

Fox News:


Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal team can brand the men shot by the teen in Kenosha, Wis., as "rioters" and "looters" when his murder trial starts next week -- but prosecutors can't call them "victims," the judge has ruled.

In a pre-trial hearing Monday, Wisconsin Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder overturned a motion to bar the teen’s attorneys from using such terms while trying to prove his triple shooting in August last year was justified self-defense.

If prosecutors can try to portray Rittenhouse as "a cold-blooded killer," then his defense should be free to "call someone a rioter," the judge said, according to a Kenosha News court report.

The left is freaking out. One commentator noted that those inside the leftwing corporate media bubble simply have never been told, ever, that the antifa rioters were chasing Rittenhouse down the street with a gun, and in fact the gun was aimed at Rittenhouse when he fired a lethal shot of his own in inarguable self-defense.

When they learn this, it won't change anything. They'll just adjust their religious doctrines to explain why leftist paramilitary terrorists are allowed to chase down a man in a street, firing a gun at him, but also why that man is not allowed to fire in response.


Biden has rewarded the president of the National School Board Association -- the one who actually signed the letter calling parents "domestic terrorists" (and who presumably colluded with the White House before hand on what their sham, pretextual letter would say) -- by promoting her to a top position in the Department of Education.

The Department of Education appointed the president of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to a federal board overseeing student progress, despite a controversial letter the organization sent urging the Biden administration to investigate opposition to school boards.

Earlier this month, Viola Garcia was appointed by Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB), which has oversight over the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

...

Garcia signed the Sept. 29 letter asking the Biden administration to review threats and violence against education administrators and schools to determine if they violate the Patriot Act and hate crime laws.

As in the case of serial perjurer and corrupt cop Andrew McCabe, the DNC Deep State makes sure its corrupt operators always get paid off -- with your money.

Oh and looky here -- Biden has appointed a defender of 2020's election irregularities to a position overseeing election security.

Both Not the Bee and PJMedia were locked out of their Twitter accounts for stating the fact that Rachel Levin is not "the first female four-star admiral" for the simple reason that he is a man.

The only good thing here is watching Feminist Karens seethe that men have c***-punted them out of the position they were seeking atop the Oppression Hierarchy Pyramid.

The Independent Women Voters forum attempted to run an ad in Virginia, in the 11pm hour, showing the sexually explicit How to Have Underage Gay Sex Handbook (official title: "Gender Queer") but the ad was rejected for being too sexually explicit.

Even though they blurred out the penises (going into the mouths of underaged boys).

The actual book being peddled to 14 year olds in school does not blur the penises out.

Content warning for some of the pictures in the link.

So you can show this Baby's First Blowjob Instruction Manual cartoon book to kids, but you can't show fuzzed-out images to adults during the adult hour of 11pm.

Ethan Van Sciver and Ya Boi Zach always point out that these Woke, Leftwing Librarians let publishers know that they will use state money to fill libraries with leftwing identity-politics and sexual material. The sales can't be vast, but the comic book industry is tiny: guaranteed sales of, say, 3000 or 4000 is enough to make a book profitable. Any sales you make beyond the Leftwing Pervert Librarian Market is just gravy.

Posted by: G'rump928(c) at October 26, 2021 04:56 PM (yQpMk)

He wasn't "going for his" pistol, it was in his hand and he was aiming it. His first charge at Rittenhouse came to a halt when Kyle aimed his rifle at him and Lefty held his hands up in a don't shoot pose. What video showed was that his pistol was looped around his finger but on the back of his hand at that moment so in that instant Kyle may have thought him unarmed and didn't shoot.
10 measly seconds later he'd turned back to Kyle from a different angle, gun being leveled, and lost his bicep.

I'd like to feel sympathy, and I do when it is deserved.

Better than that, Rittenhouse had a failure to fire while on his back with "lefty" coming at him. "Lefty" paused at the FTF, and when Rittenhouse pulled his weapon off line to clear his weapon "Lefty" appeared to advance and be bringing his pistol up to shoot.
Which is why "Lefty" got shot in his pistol arm.

Rittenhouse did the cleanest, nicest clear and check under adverse conditions, the boy is good.

Here's the thing. It doesn't have to be 100 percent of us. It just has to be enough of us that there is a nonzero risk to the paramilitaries who are trying to round us up. [I am assuming it would be largely deputized special Party paramilitaries ("Organizing for America" and such) because the regular LE would be largely reluctant to play along, for a variety of reasons including their own and their families' personal risk, and would be unreliable.] So long as the potential cost becomes significant enough that roundup operations are rare enough, then we win in a guerrilla action.

146 Does the DoorDash delivery person get paid upfront with the order, then the tip is on top of that? (I think that is how pizza delivery works) If so, $8 is way too much ... and hopefully "little miss attitude girl" gets banned for life, as well as owing for the food and reimbursing the tip. It must all be done with credit card.

175 I saw video of the Kenosha incident within minutes of it occurring. The actual shooting part, in the first encounter, was not captured, but the guy chasing Rittenhouse was, as I recall.

The second shooting was very clearly recorded. Rittenhouse being chased down the street, falling, and a series of idiot rioters proceeding to attack him, most missing with their blows, including a skateboard that could have easily killed him. Shows the guy being shot after missing with an attack and then persisting (don't remember exactly).

Oh - and the third shot fired, which hit the rioter in the arm. I believe other video showed this third shot receptor pocketing a firearm shortly before all this, but I could be misremembering. Anyway, no case here of any kind. This is worse than the Chauvin lynching, which is was also absurd, though for some reason many persist in trying to believe some kind of "punishment" was justified.

218 "When they learn this, it won't change anything. They'll just adjust their religious doctrines to explain why leftist paramilitary terrorists are allowed to chase down a man in a street, firing a gun at him, but also why that man is not allowed to fire in response."

This aptly capture the sine qua non of leftists, sophism. Every alleged argument is fallacy- and provably so. They don't care. They'll just count on the praetorian guard media, protectors of deception, to lance the truth. Even a pedestrian observer can figure out what's going on here. Any person still listening to them lol s clearly a true believer and acolyte of evil.

That's called establishing a government. The Spaniards merged and intermarried with local nobility.

253 I think it was in God Emporer where it was pointed out that the Sardaukar were so 'elite' due to the harsh conditions on Salusa Secundus.

Something like that, and also the training had made them so elite they were living well and not facing the harsh conditions. Frank Herbert was a huge fan of "tough living conditions and hardship make for better men" doctrine

I mean, not so much that he actually lived that way personally, but in theory.

If you want books without Herbert's... particular worldview set in that world, you can read his son's stuff. Lots of prequel work setting up the story. Not nearly as well written but interesting.

266 Update on my condition:

About 13 days after I tested positive for COVID, I'm now about 98%. I have a small, phlegm-less cough, but I could work out now if I wanted to, and I have no shortness of breath. IVM took out the fever in about a day or two, and I had some lingering aches and pains for another 5 days or so. The cough was the lingering, and annoying, feature. Some Robitussin suppressed the cough for a day, which was enough to stop most of the annoying coughs. I still have a cough when I wake up, but that's pretty much it.

Final verdict from me - COVID sucks in the same way that a nasty flu does, but it's not a killer. I certainly understand anyone wanting to get a shot to avoid it, but mandating a non-MERS-type treatment makes no sense. Total overkill. BTW, if I were 29*3 rather than 29*2, I'd have no problem getting the shot. Glad I didn't this time.

I always assume there's going to be a twist in every story. This one shocked me when I read it in the story about the judge ruling that the trans teen had sexually assaulted the girl in the bathroom.

"In court, the 15-year-old girl testified that she engaged in consensual sexual activity with the defendant two different times in a girls' bathroom at Stone Bridge High School but on a subsequent occasion was violently coerced into performing sexual acts."

He's still guilty in my mind, but WTH??

Eh, I've seen plenty that were more clear cut.

Rittenhouse shooting the bald guy in the beginning is pretty defensible, but it's not a slam dunk. A guy is chasing him and probably reaches out and someone fires a shot a short distance away.

You and me and most people on this site have no problem with this, but the people who want to blame Rittenhouse can pretty easily squint their eyes and say that's a questionable shooting.

Was baldy really a deadly threat at that point? For me, the guy firing a shot right before Rittenhouse opens fire is the clincher. But if you just look at a guy chasing Rittenhouse who probably reached for R's rifle, eh. That part's a bit grey.

It was just a feudal realm (lacking the grant of official titles which was a later major point of contention between the colonies and the Crown). The econmienda system was from Spain, not some sort of new invention. It's the grant of land and taxation rights(of the forms that existed in that age). The Black Legend is a pretty big distortion of what happened. The Laws of Burgos outlawing the slavery of natives predates Cortes's adventure anyhow.

It's not like we're talking Russian serfdom here.

373 tipping door dash makes no sense. These fees should be rolled into delivery.

One problem is that tipping is usually a percentage. That makes sense in a restaurant where more food = more work for server, and also higher priced joints require more work, so tipping as a percentage works out roughly representative of amount of service.

But door dashers do the same work no matter how much the food costs.

The other problem is that a tip means it is voluntary and goes up and down with service quality. But there is no service except walking the shit to the door. The reward for being fast is that they can get another delivery, so why the need for customer to reward dasher? there is none.

I believe you have the terminology correct.

The J&J vaccine is a viral vector vaccine. They splice the genetic sequence of the SARS-2 spike protein into the genome of an adenovirus. The adenovirus is what gets injected, the spike protein is manufactured by the host's cells locally at the injection site and presented to T-cells to initiate the immune response.

388 bonhomme: "Was baldy really a deadly threat at that point? For me, the guy firing a shot right before Rittenhouse opens fire is the clincher..."

Baldy had already introduced himself earlier as the most belligerent actor. He was agitating the mob (and aggressively going after Rittenhouse) long before he got shot near the vehicles. He was perhaps the central provocateur of the entire episode. So there was a predicate for Rittenhouse's stronger defense of his life when Baldy closed on him later. They were going to assault and likely kill him right then and there.

The only positive thing that Christie did was pardon a number of people who got caught up in NJ's idiotic gun laws being strenuously applied to otherwise law abiding people whole letting criminals and gang bangers go or plead down to nothing.

Also, on the way out the door, as a parting gift to NJ, he signed the raise in gas taxes into law.

404 Well, it was pretty close. Of all the great colonial powers the Spanish were the worst and closest to the modern academic characterization of colonizers. Heartless, abusive, racist, etc.

English were the least problematic. If you look at former English colonies, they are all in pretty good shape still. Not so much French or Spanish.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at October 26, 2021 05:52 PM (KZzsI)

India isn't in great shape. Which coincidentally is one of the few British colonies to have a large native population remaining. Furthermore, most of the Spanish colonies were in pretty good shape near the end of the 19th century, they mostly got done in by waves of socialism. An argument about African slavery might be made, but as far as native slavery goes the Spanish colonies ended that pretty quickly as they ultimately were looking to have a pretty standard European set up (with the Indians as subjects much like most people back home).

The natives in South America are essentially still living there(having to some degree merged with the Spanish, to some degree not) and predominantly make up the population, unlike the natives of North America.

It's their Sympathy Gap that determines their response. They don't have any sympathy for Rittenhouse, so they won't have any sympathy for Rittenhouse.

I think this might be why they think that we can only be okay with the Blake shooting if we have no sympathy for Blake.

But for me, it's entirely situational. If Blake was killed as the radicals describe it, "walking to his car", that would be one thing. I'm really not ardent that they should have shot him for grabbing a knife, but I also know that I have heard cops explain how much the layman underestimates the damage somebody can do--and quickly--with a knife.

But it's not a lack of sympathy as much as exhaustion: if the cops are called because you're violating a restraining order placed to protect a woman you had beaten badly, that's a jailable offense. Walking away is resisting arrest. Pulling a knife out??!!

433 Saw DUNE -

I liked it but didn't love it. Basically, it hit all the same scenes as David Lynch's version only at a lower key and a slower pace and ended at roughly the midpoint of that movie.

The 1984 version explained much better what Spice was and why it was important by "showing" us how it changes everything around it. In 2021, Spice ism mentioned vaguely once, and somehow uses giant elongated urinals as Star Gates.

Most of the duplicated scenes were done better in the Lynch version. Cuz they were quick, snappy, and alien feeling and looking as befits 10000 years in the future.

Better actors in 84 as well. And Baron harkkonen was a stone cold bore. BONUS! Not a lot of acting required by Zendaya.

Anywho, I'd like to see part two and hope they finish things with more vim and vigor.

The story itself is an opera, which the '84 version captured. The 2021 version is more a guy whistling while he walks his dog in the park.

By "pure" that means this dude we'd consider black or hispanic is a "white" guy. Race is hella weird down there. Also the intermarriage with local nobility by the new rulers was documented at the time. But if we're looking at massive native population colonies (which English colonies largely aren't), the fair comparison is India.

Into the late 17th century? Off by about 2 centuries there mate. They imported African slaves because enslaving the natives was illegal. The French were massacred in Haiti.

Comparing countries of predominantly English people with countries of predominantly Native Americans is not a very fair comparison. By population, India is the majority of Britain's colonization. And it's a shithole with a lot remnant caste system attitudes.

463 Into the late 17th century? Off by about 2 centuries there mate. They imported African slaves because enslaving the natives was illegal.

I dont know what history you are reading but I suppose technically the natives being enslaved weren't actually "slaves" because they did get paid... like coal miners did in 1910 Appalachia. Meaning they were charged for everything and ended up with no money and could not leave. You can decide if that's slavery or not.

MANY contemporary accounts detail the horrific treatment of the natives by the Spanish colonizers. I'm not sure where you are getting your information.

484 > But he did have that info at the time. He was the explicit target of Baldy after Rittenhouse extinguished the dumpster fire all the way until Baldy attacked him by the vehicles. Rittenhouse repeatedly tried to leave the presence of Baldy but Baldy refused to let that happen. Rittenhouse was already is flight mode when Baldy went for the weapon.

There's video from before the dumpster fire where baldy is doing the ape aggression display. That's the instigator part Rittenhouse wasn't there to see.

From the time baldy targeted Rittenhouse for putting out the dumpster fire to the time baldy closed and made a grab for the weapon, there's not a lot of indication baldy is a lethal threat. I think lunging for the weapon is fairly reasonable justification, but it's not black and white.

For me, the gunshot from a third party just before Rittenhouse shoots baldy changes the equation a great deal. If Rittenhouse believed baldy had fired a shot at him, then lunged at him, that IS black and white.

490 I've never seen imagery of the first shooting (Kyle vs. whoever in the shadows between the cars). The 2nd and 3rd are plain as day, and am astounded there could be any question about self-defense. In the 2nd, Kyle shoots after several idiots have taken runs at him, including a skateboard swing that would have ended his life or normal life if it had connected to its target, his head. In the 3rd, the guy rushes up on him and menaces him, and I think reaches for what earlier video suggests was a handgun.

That there is any prosecution here is wildly redundant confirmation that the US is a Third World shithole, generally, and what took centuries to build is mostly gone.

I wonder if USAID still has "democracy & governance" programs to help poor benighted furrin countries just emerging from civil wars and dictatorships? Where would the "instructors" come from? Singapore? Chile? Americans are no longer credible reps of law-based open society, generally.

Well you can look at the sources and look at who was actually in a position to speak on these matters. Were the natives serfs initially? Yes, though this is not unique and didn't represent a particularly new standard of conduct. Imported African slaves undoubtedly got the short end of the stick, natives were ultimately not particularly worse off than peasants in many other European or European colonized countries. The need for such a massive importation of slaves was because native labor was simply not viable, despite their large populations then and now.

Most "contemporary" historical depictions of atrocity are from Bartolome de las Casas, who wasn't in any sort of informed position to comment on the matter. Later materials from largely hostile sources often are derived from him. The account is about as accurate as the popular narratives regarding Galileo.

Were the natives driven out and effectively wiped out like they were in North America? No.

One of the things you have to watch out for in Colonial South American history is the Black Legend, which was started in part by the English who were competing against the Spanish in the New World and in Holland.
Further, every coup was run by someone who had to explain why they were better than the people they usurped, and then the Marxists are all full in to how bad colonialism was and how they are the solution.
It is the joke of the Soviet Union, the future is always glorious, it is the past that kept getting worse.

True horrific slavery, colonial overreach and abuse happened in Haiti leading to the first slave revolt against the Ancien Regime, and the attempt by Napoleon to retake the colony ending before they could carry out a planned genocide.

It's weird. That shot doesn't do it for me. It happened so fast (almost concurrently?) that the decision for lethal force was already determined. The mere act of all pointed, previous hostility PLUS the reaching for his weapon in restricted space with limited exit was the driver for a reasonable self-defense with his weapon. Any loud noises (even gunshot) is essentially superfluous.

It probably helped DJT that Christie put Jared Kushner's dad in prison. Jared wasn't too predisposed to like Christie for that one.

528 Island Giveaway - a limerick

I once met a Catholic priest from Goa.
Who wore a bright pink feather boa
Who said, in a huff
"If you that ain't ghey enough
Just ask me, I'll give you Samoa!"

531 Huh, they were wiped out? I live within ten miles of several reservations and know a lot of local natives. They seem to be pretty not wiped out.
You have poor history teachers.

532 So, all the people here that had a problem, back in the day, with my being upset with enforced vaccination of kids for things like MMR, step up and claim the prize of soon to be having your kids and grandkids forced to take *this* shot.


As for this "Dr. Ruben" fucker. Where's he live? Where do his kids or grandkids live and go to school?

They want to endanger other people's kids? Theirs ought to be fair game.

535 Catherine-

I homeschool. A friend is a speech therapist teaching at the local state university. My kid gets free ST over Zoom from students learning to be therapists. Zoom makes it so the therapist can see the face, and vice versa. But my kid's need is mild, couldnt say his Rs and a few other sounds.

Homeschooling is worth everything. And there are ways to work around.

And yes, the shot mandates are coming for school admittance. Keep them out!

537 He has said several times that Guiliani, et. al. screwed up. Challenging the vote counts was a fool's errand, the vote counts would always be pretty close to reported. The way to approach was to challenge the canvas. Many, many votes in the totals were ineligible.
