All comes down to another opportunity to virtue signal one's elitism. A tonic for their Ego.
Look at me.  I am so virtuous in my compassion and diversity and WOKEness.

I am reminded of the line from Shelley's great poem:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

LAPD’s Topanga Division Station Firebombed in Latest Attack on Law Enforcement
In the latest violent attack on Los Angeles law enforcement, the L.A. Police Department’s Topanga Division station was firebombed with an apparent molotov cocktail early Sunday. Authorities pursued and successfully apprehended the suspect.

An LAPD spokesperson confirmed to Breitbart News that the attack took place at around 12:55 a.m. Sunday morning. The suspect threw a glass bottle containing a flammable liquid at the station’s front window. The act was witnessed by multiple officers who went in pursuit of the attacker.

Curious when you consider this story:

Nice work if you can get it - BLM
Starting a brand like Black Lives Matter is highly lucrative. It was never about adjusting past wrongs, it has always been about grabbing power and money. Cullors is using race to grift the American population.

From real-estate website dirt.com:

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Lands Topanga Canyon Compound
A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

More here and here - Topanga is just under 20 sq. miles and has about 8,300 people. Quite the wealthy and/or bohemian hangout. Makes me wonder if Mr. Rosin (the perp - they caught him) is a friend of Ms. Cullors...

Peace in the Middle East - Biden

Looks like things are backsliding right according to schedule - from the London Daily Mail:

Navy seizes THOUSANDS of Chinese and Russian assault weapons, sniper rifles and anti-tank missiles hidden on ship 'sailing from Iran to Yemen' in the Arabian Sea

    • The U.S. Fifth Fleet discovered the weapons aboard a ship in the Arabian Sea off Oman and Pakistan
    • The Navy found nearly 3,000 Chinese Type 56 assault rifles, a variant of the Kalashnikov, hundreds of other heavy machine guns and sniper rifles, and dozens of advanced, Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles
    • The weapons appeared to be bound for Yemen to support the country's Houthi rebels, Navy officials say
    • Navy's initial investigation found the vessel came from Iran. Tehran has previously denied providing rebels with weapons
    • This recent seizure appeared to be among the biggest in recent years amid the long- running war in Yemen

Iran is a sponsor of terrorism.  There are very good reasons why there are economic sanctions against them. They have been providing arms and have been trying to develop nuclear weapons. The Biden administration are enabling them to continue this activity.  Why?   After all, we can't have John Kerry be proven complicit in sponsoring terror now can we.

Ruining our children - WA State

Sickening news from Legal Insurrection this morning:

Washington Gov. Inslee Signs Bill Requiring Critical Race Training For Public School Teachers
On May 5, Governor Jay Inslee of Washington signed Senate Bill 5044 into law, which requires Critical Race Theory (CRT) training for all school staff, board directors, teachers, and administrators in public schools across the state.

CRT is a toxic and divisive stew of marxist talking points. I look forward to the day when the adults return to the room.  This stupidity is going to cause untold damage to our next generation.

Loren Culp was not the ideal cantidate for Governor - little political and/or business experience - he was the police chief of a very small town in Eastern Washington.  That being said, he still won over 40% of the vote in 2020.  WA State is tired of the poor leadership and stupidity of Inslee.

An interesting development in the Arizona election audit.  I had written yesterday that the Democrats were not giving the auditors the administrative passwords to the voting machinery.  Either they did not have them (in which case, the voting was run by Dominion and not by the state (sooper illegal)) or they were trying to hide something (something sooper illegal?)

From The Gateway Pundit:

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Holds Emergency Meeting After AZ Senate Threatens Legal Action for Not Providing Passwords and Routers
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors held an emergency meeting yesterday after the County was reportedly unable to provide passwords to the auditors performing an audit of the county’s 2020 Election results.  They also did not provide access to the routers which were requested in the audit as well.

Probably a closed-door meeting and instead of having pizzas delivered, they are sending out for a couple cases of Depends.  They seriously thought they could get away with it.  That We The People would not notice the huge discrepancies in the numbers. Now that they are being called on it, they are stonewalling every inch of the way.

I wrote yesterday about how the admin access to the database server was crucial to see if the records had been tampered with. The routers are just as important.  There are supposedly records of Internet Protocol traffic to locations in Germany and China.  If this turns out to be true, that means that foreign agents were monitoring and/or tampering at the very heart of where the individual votes were being recorded. No semblance of security.

Going down and could not be happening to a nicer bunch of people.

Got to think that they are just not that bright if they seriously thought that they could pull this off.
I mean now... Biden?

Getting hinkier by the minute - from The Gateway Pundit:

AZ Audit Director Ken Bennett: Dominion Refuses to Comply with Subpoena and Turn Over Password to Their Maricopa County Machines
The Maricopa County Election Board claimed this week they do not have ‘Admin’ access to their county’s voting machines.

If this is the case, then the County did not own the election process they ceded it to their external vendor.

System administrators are individuals who have access to the systems at their highest levels. These individuals are able to perform all sorts of duties. They are able to perform most all the functions and changes in a system. They have complete and total control and can even delete or alter system logs.

I am betting that this last item: "and can even delete or alter system logs" is why they are withholding the access.  My SWAG is that the voting systems use some form of database and I am betting it is some dialect of SQL Server. These databases record every single operation that has ever happened from their day of creation to their last event. It would record if and when the system logs were altered or deleted.  Only an admin (root) would have the ability to read the database at that level of detail and granularity.

Here is Ken talking about the problem:

The roadblocks that they are throwing up indicate to me that there are significant problems with the accuracy of the 2020 Presidential Election. There are 2,700+ comments to the Gateway Pundit article that agree with me.  The Democrats knew that they did not have a chance - that the American Voters would not stand for their ideology. So, they did what they always do - they cheated.

They will continue to do this until we make it very painful for them to break the law.

The Chinese know what makes Hunter tick - hookers and blow.
From the London Daily Mail:

EXCLUSIVE: 'Your doggy chain necklace is waiting for you.' Flirty messages from Hunter Biden's Chinese-American secretary, 29, who worked for him when he partnered with the 'spy chief of China' are revealed

    • DailyMail.com can reveal messages between Hunter Biden and young Chinese-American woman who worked in his business venture with Patrick Ho
    • In an audio recording, Hunter described Ho to a friend as the 'spy chief of China'
    • The young secretary, JiaQi Bao, worked for Hunter during his partnership with Chinese oil giant CEFC in a multi-million-dollar deal
    • Bao, then age 29, scheduled flights, hotels and doctor's appointments for him
    • She sent him opposition research to help Joe Biden's 2020 election bid and wrote flirty and personal messages and ended up with his military dog tags
    • She also encouraged him to draw from the company's accounts before they was shut down
    • Hunter and Joe Biden's brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017, in a deal that was meant to generate billions of dollars
    • But the joint venture collapsed the following year when CEFC's secretary general Ho was arrested and convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution
    • It's unclear whether Bao was aware of CEFC bosses alleged links with intelligence services at the time and she has not responded to requests for comment

Hunter Biden's emails reveal his close relationship with the Chinese-American secretary who worked for him when he went into business with the man he called the 'spy chief of China.'

The mysterious young assistant wrote the president's son flirty messages, sent him opposition research for Joe's White House run and encouraged him to draw funds from the company's accounts when the joint venture collapsed and even ended up with Hunter's military dog tags.

In 2017 Hunter went into business with Patrick Ho, secretary general of Chinese oil giant CEFC.

Hunter described Ho in a call recording on his abandoned laptop as the 'spy chief of China', and the Chinese businessman was later surveilled by US law enforcement as a foreign intelligence threat before he was convicted of bribery in 2018.

After launching his multi-million-dollar joint venture with CEFC, Hunter was assigned a 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, who quickly struck up a close and intriguing relationship with her Biden boss.

At first, emails show the New York-based Bao diligently scheduled flights, hotels and even doctor's appointments for the president's son.

Much more at the site - the whole family is dirty as hell.

It is grift all the way down.  From the Daily Caller:

BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Has Funneled Business To Company Run By Father Of Her Only Child, Records Show
Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder and executive director of Black Lives Matter’s national arm, has funneled business to a company led by a man she identified as the father of her only child, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of business records, interviews and social media posts found.

The company, Trap Heals, was formed just days before partnering with Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and later became the charity’s “lead developer of the art & cultural efforts,” according to business records, interviews and an archived version of Trap Heals’ website. Two other activist groups Cullors led paid Trap Heals a collective $238,000 to produce an election night livestream and for consulting services, campaign finance records show.

In numerous public mentions of their work, Cullors and Turner did not disclose that they had a child together. But in at least one instance, Turner said Cullors was directly involved in Trap Heals’ partnership with BLM Global Network.

A little bit of nepotism going there.  Eithics be damned. BLM is a funraising tool for Cullors and her cronies.

Idée fixe???  Definition     A great quote from Jeff Goldstein at protein wisdom (December 2005):

DEFINING THE TERMS:  RACISM, FEMINISM, AND THE PROBLEM OF IDENTITY POLITICS
An obvious problem with the grievance aspect of identity politics is that the grievance needs to be perpetually maintained in order to justify the identity aspect of the politics.  And in an era of academic specialization wherein just about every individual identity group has its own set of researchers and theoretical champions—as well as a widely accepted generic narrative of grievance—the observation that continued relevance (which translates into political power) is contingent upon the nursing and care of the grievance is something that too often goes unexamined by a society that, at base, really does wish to understand and fix the problems and frustrations expressed by individual identity groups.

So true - the groups suffer from the same problem that all bureaucracies have.  If they fixed the problem that they were created to address, they would be out of a job and on the streets trying to come up with a new hustle. It is not in their interest to fix problems - War on Poverty? War on Drugs? Environmental Protection Agency? Department of Education?

Milch cows each and every one of them.  Same thing as we are seeing with Black Lives Matter - the founders are getting rich and the supporters on the street are getting squat.

More at David Thompson's site (December 4th, 2013):

Because Lying and Resenting is What Angels Do
Many moons ago, in a post on classroom radicalism and the grooming of students, I wrote,

The problem is that adversarial role-play, like that of leftist academics Grover Furr and Rhonda Garelick, has little to do with reason, refutation or how the world actually is. It does, however, have a great deal to do with how those concerned wish to seem. In order to maintain a self-image of heroic radicalism - and in order to justify funding, influence and status - great leaps of imagination or paranoia may be required. Hence the goal posts of persecution tend to move and new and rarer forms of exploitation and injustice have to be discovered, many of which are curiously invisible to the untutored eye. Thus, the rebel academic tends towards extremism, intolerance and absurdity, not because the mainstream of society is becoming more racist, prejudiced, patriarchal or oppressive – but precisely because it isn’t. As mainstream society becomes less fixated by race, gender, sexuality, etc., so peddlers of grievance and victimhood must search out - or invent - something to oppose. Overstatement and escalation are all but inevitable.

Much more at both sites - some insightful comments too.  Quite the trip down memory lane.  These are from around ten years ago and people are still pulling this shit.  Nobody has called them on it so they are getting away with it and making some very serious bank. Sometimes, I wish I did not have scruples.  I would be a lot better off financially.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

Major Sanctions Relief on Table for Iran, State Dept. Says
The Biden administration is considering granting Iran significant economic sanctions relief, according to U.S. and Iranian officials, confirming that Iran is making headway in its demand that America unwind many of its most crippling measures.

Negotiations with Iran in Vienna are centered around the scope and scale of sanctions relief, a State Department spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon, confirming similar comments issued this week by Iranian officials. Iran is pushing the Biden administration to nix nearly all of the sanctions applied by the former Trump administration, including those targeting the country’s nuclear program, terrorism operations, banks, and oil trade. The Biden administration says it is willing to lift all sanctions necessary for America to make a full return to the original nuclear accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which provided Iran with billions in cash assets.

A few steps forward with President Trump and now, sliding a few miles back down the mountain.
Biden's handlers are continuing Obama's program of appeasement.
How many millions is this going to cost us - taxpayer dollars and human lives.

A couple of headlines:

The total was around $10,000 in several contributions from several people.  What gets me is NOT that our putative leaders can be bought but for how little they recieve for selling us out.

Yeah - long hot summer all over again. Brought to you by the commies in 1967.  Brought to you by the useful idiots of today 54 years later. Fscking activists. A kind of mental illness.

Some good news.  Don't forget that she is making very good money pushing this crap. Great photo at the link - what a harpy.

She is the St. Louis Circuit Attorney - released all those "peaceful" protestors.

Geee - if there was only some way to - 'ya know - restrict travel at the border?
The precursor chemicals are coming in from China and the cartels are making it.
How much money are they paying Pelosi and Schumer to keep the borders open?

This is my surprised face.

From Minneapolis, Minnesota station WCCO:

Derek Chauvin’s Attorney Files Motion For New Trial
Attorney Eric Nelson has filed a motion for a new trial for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.

Nelson filed the motion on the grounds of juror misconduct, and that the court abused its discretion for failing to agree to the defense’s requests for a change of venue and sequestering the jury.

The filing comes in the midst of a controversy surrounding a photo of juror Brandon Mitchell at the March on Washington last August, which included speeches from George Floyd’s family members. He is seen wearing a T-shirt that says “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks.” In his juror questionnaire, Mitchell wrote that he had not attended any protests about police brutality. Mitchell told WCCO Monday that he was at the march in support of ramping up voter turnout for the 2020 presidential election.

Pants on fire. This was a show trial straight out of the Communist playbook.  People need to understand that history repeats.  People did this back in the 1930's and they are trying to do it again.  There is no rational explanation.  Shades of the French Revolution. The history books are littered with cases like this.

Finally showing some backbone - from the Multnomah County District Attorney:

DA Mike Schmidt files charges after May Day civil unrest in Portland, Oregon
Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt charged three people connected to the civil unrest that occurred on May Day.

The Portland Police Bureau announced the arrest of six people on May 1, 2021:

    • Three of the arrestees were charged today, May 3, 2021 (see individual case details below.)
    • Two of the arrestees had outstanding warrants. There is no allegation that either committed a new crime on May 1, 2021.
    • One case is referred back to law enforcement for additional investigative follow-up.

The release goes to list the goblins involved - nice people. They need to be seperated from the rest of us for 10-20 years.  Make anarchy not fun. Make people responsible for their actions.  Simple as that.

The Feebs got a Judge to sign a warrant and they busted into his appartment at 6:00 AM a few days ago taking a lot of his electronics equipment. The media was quick to report - they had their own "internal sources" after all.
From the New York Post:

New York Times, WaPo, NBC forced to retract false claims about Giuliani
The New York Times, Washington Post and NBC News all issued retractions Saturday for their coverage of Rudy Giuliani following a raid of his Manhattan apartment by the FBI.

The Times appended their correction to a story about the role Giuliani may have played in the 2019 recall of ambassador Marie L. Yovanovitch and whether he received a warning from the FBI about Russian disinformation.

“An earlier version of this article misstated whether Rudolph W. Giuliani received a formal warning from the F.B.I. about Russian disinformation. Mr. Giuliani did not receive such a so-called defensive briefing,” The Times wrote Saturday in a note attached to the piece.

More at the site - they all got core elements of the story dead wrong.  Funny thing - the reports were all of them MORE damaging to Giuliani than LESS damaging.  It was like they were going out of their way to slam him instead of just making a simple (and random) mistake on their reporting.

Guess they need some new "internal sources"

Could not have happened to a more deserving elitist fool. When he walks into a room, the collective IQ diminishes by 40%.
From The Washington Free Beacon:

Zarif Had No Knowledge of Israeli Strikes Until Kerry Told Him, Translation Reveals
Leaked audiotape of Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif indicates he had no knowledge of covert Israeli military strikes before former secretary of state John Kerry provided him with the information, new details that contradict the State Department's recent defense of Kerry.

Kerry is protected because his stepson (Christopher Heinz) is one of the two other people who were doing deals with Hunter Biden and the Ukraine and China. Kerry has the goods on Joe and cannot be touched. The whole multi-billion Rosemont Capitol deal.

Will this be enough to bring him down?  I love this video - a perfect encapsulation of Kerry's awareness:

Kerry is the personification of all that is wrong with our cultural elite.

This might not have the reaction that the children in Portland are hoping for.
GOOD!  Let them enjoy the consequences of their stupid behavior.  Good and Hard.
From Bryan Preston writing at PJ Media:

In Chilling Video, Antifa Doxes, Threatens to KILL Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler
Late last week Portland, Ore., Mayor Ted Wheeler took to video to plea for the community’s help to “unmask” antifa. The violence-prone anarchist-fascist group has terrorized Portland with months of violent and destructive insurrectionist riots despite Joe Biden merely calling antifa an “idea.”

Someone purporting to represent antifa has responded to Wheeler with a new video. In this video, the masked individual pushes anti-American themes and publishes Wheeler’s home address. The individual finishes the disturbing presentation with a veiled threat to kill Mayor Wheeler.

“Ted, we are asking for the last time that you resign,” the video’s narrator says. “If you ignore this message outright, the destruction to your precious way of life is going to escalate. Blood is already on your hands, Ted. The next time, it may just be your own.”

Those last words have Wheeler’s clearly legible address superimposed over them.

The article has both this video and some others (setting the stage).  They are showing their hand.  If we had a Federal Government with a backbone, the US Marshalls would have been in Portland months ago putting a stop to all this.  The rioting could be shut down in two weeks if officials wanted to do it.

Now, they are making actionable threats against elected officials - see what happens next.

Not surprised - from Judicial Watch:

Documents Show CA State Officials Coordinated with Big Tech to Censor Americans’ Election Posts
Judicial Watch announced today that it received 540 pages and a supplemental four pages of documents from the office of the Secretary of State of California revealing how state officials pressured social media companies (Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube)) to censor posts about the 2020 election. Included in these documents were “misinformation briefings” emails that were compiled by communications firm SKDK, that lists Biden for President as their top client of 2020. The documents show how the state agency successfully pressured YouTube to censor a Judicial Watch video concerning the vote by mail and a Judicial Watch lawsuit settlement about California voter roll clean up.

Much more at the site including source docments.  Not surprised at all - the Democrats have nothing to offer us so they have to cheat to gain power. They do not represent us. They are only out for their own personal gain.

The Giuliani raid

A. F. Branco has it:

20210429-branco.jpg

From last evening - Rudolph Giuliani's website:

Statement by Robert J. Costello on April 28, 2021
Rudolph Giuliani has authorized Robert J. Costello to release the following statement regarding the events on April 28, 2021:

The Biden department of justice has completely ignored clear evidence (which the FBI has had for over a year) in texts and emails on Hunter Biden’s hard drive of failing to register numerous times as a foreign agent, child pornography, money laundering, and 30 years of the Biden Crime family taking millions and millions in bribes to sell his public offices.

Instead, the Justice Department decided it was a higher priority to serve (at dawn) search warrants for electronics at the home and law office of former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

The search warrants involve only one indication of an alleged incident of failure to register as a foreign agent. Mayor Giuliani has not only denied this allegation, but offered twice in the past two years through his attorney Bob Costello to demonstrate that it is entirely untrue. Twice the offer was rejected by the SDNY by stating that while they were willing to listen to anything Mr. Costello had to say, they would not tell Mr. Giuliani or Mr. Costello, the subject matter they wanted him to address.

And a bit more (I am only excerpting from a long statement)

The electronics taken are, also, replete with the material covered by the attorney-client privilege and other constitutional privileges. The warrant served on Mr. Giuliani’s law office is another disturbing example of complete disregard for the attorney-client privilege protected by the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution.

Remember the newspaper reports that explained that twice before, the SDNY went to Main Justice to seek permission to obtain a search warrant for Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices and twice before the request was rejected. What changed? A new Administration – a new Attorney General. Were they ever informed of Mr. Costello’s offer? Was the Judge who signed the search warrant ever informed of Mr. Costello’s offer? We think not.

Costello hits the nail on the head.  New administration and a new Attorney General. We are seeing the content of Merrick Garland's character. Thank God he was not appointed to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Ginsberg.

I love that they left all the Hunter Biden material - this will come out and blow up in their faces.  They could have so easilly taken it and put it into that Government Vault right next to the Ark of the Covenant.20210429-ark.jpg

Guess what? From Jason Rantz at Seattle station KTTH:

Seattle’s socialist councilmembers collectively worth over $3.5 million
Socialists on the Seattle City Council have taken advantage of our capitalist system, getting wealthy off the low-income voters they claim to fight for.

In fact, Socialists Kshama Sawant and Tammy Morales are collectively worth over $3.5 million. In Washington state, they’re both one-percenters: the very people they regularly demonize.

Councilmembers must submit financial disclosure forms every year. It allows the public to see any potential conflicts of interest. But it has the added bonus of highlighting how many get wealthy off their socialist grift. It turns out, the only way socialism works, apparently, is selling your brand to kids who live at their parent’s homes, while convincing them to give you more power.

Kshama Sawant gets rich off hating the wealthy
Councilmember Sawant has built a brand over demonizing the rich. But while she drums up anger amongst her cult-like followers of 20-something Antifa radicals and local college professors, Sawant and her husband get rich.

Not only did Sawant list her net worth as $550,000 this year, but it’s more than doubled since 2016 when it was listed as $270,000. And that completely grassroots campaign of supporters to defend Sawant against the recall campaign she’s pretending is fueled by the right? Her husband Calvin Priest serves as its political director.

At one point, Sawant vowed to only accept an “ordinary worker’s salary” for her work of about $40,000. She would donate the remainder to the Kshama Sawant Solidarity Fund. The majority of the donations made its way back to Sawant via Socialist Alternative.

SCC Insight called this scheme “laundering” in 2017, though noted it’s legal. She stopped updating the page noting the donations in 2019.

It’s worth noting that Sawant doesn’t list her home address on her disclosure file. Presumably, she doesn’t want people showing up to harass her. Sawant faces recall, in part, for leading radicals to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s home. The mayor’s home was to be private over security concerns stemming from her job as a U.S. Attorney.

The Deep State at work

President Trump may have been replaced by our flacid *Resident but the deep state are still running their agenda.
From The New York Times:

Federal Investigators Execute Search Warrant at Rudy Giuliani’s Apartment
Federal investigators in Manhattan executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the Upper East Side apartment of Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who became President Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, stepping up a criminal investigation into Mr. Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, three people with knowledge of the matter said.

One of the people said the investigators had seized Mr. Giuliani’s electronic devices.

Executing a search warrant is an extraordinary move for prosecutors to take against a lawyer, let alone a lawyer for a former president, and it marks a major turning point in the long-running investigation into Mr. Giuliani.

Wasn't the whole Trump Ukraine telephone call thing debunked? And, as we get to paragraph nine:

The investigation of Mr. Giuliani grew out of a case against two Soviet-born men who aided his mission in Ukraine to unearth damaging information about Mr. Biden and his son Hunter, who was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. The prosecutors charged the two men, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, with unrelated crimes in late 2019 and a trial is scheduled for October.

It's not about justice.  It's about protecting Hunter - keeping him out of the news.
Can't embarrass a sitting *Resident now can we...

Defund the police

This is the camel's nose under the tent.  The liberals are looking to replace the local police with Federal police.
Has this been done before in history? Yup. Has it been good for We The People? Nope.
From The History Place:

The Gestapo is Born
Although the Gestapo is generally associated with SS Leader Heinrich Himmler, it was actually founded by Hermann Göring in April 1933.

Upon becoming Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler had appointed Göring as Minister of the Interior for the State of Prussia, Germany's biggest and most important state, which controlled two thirds of the country, including the capital, Berlin, and the big industrial centers. As Minister of the Interior, Göring thereby had control of the police.

The first thing he did was to prohibit regular uniformed police from interfering with Nazi Brownshirts out in the streets. This meant that innocent German citizens had no one to turn to as they were being beaten up by rowdy young storm troopers drunk with their newfound power and quite often drunk on beer. These young Nazi toughs took full advantage of police leniency to loot shops at will and terrorize Jews or anyone else unfortunate enough to be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sound familiar? Hmmmm? Portland? Seattle? Michigan?

Much more at the site.  The timeline is being followed with sickening accuracy and the end result will be the same if nothing is done. If people remain complacent. This is evil walking the land and it needs to be stopped.

a careful management of appearances.  The Homeless Department. From FOX News:

City of Los Angeles accused of moving the homeless in order to prepare for the Oscars
For the first time in its history, the 93rd Academy Awards is being held at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.

It’s an area that is plagued by homelessness. But come Oscar Sunday, the homeless will not be seen anywhere near Union Station.

"They came to us about a week ago saying that we had to move by Friday 6 p.m. because they were trying to clean up for the Oscars and they told us if we didn’t move, they were gonna just demolish our stuff," says DJ, a man living in a tent in downtown Los Angeles.

DJ says the city did offer an option.

"They forced us to go to the Grand Hotel on 3rd and Figueroa and they kicked everybody out of Union Station so it looks better for the image," says DJ.

No surprises there - from Big League Politics:

FactCheck.org’s COVID-19 Project is Funded by Foundation That Has 15 Percent of Its Assets in Johnson and Johnson Stock
A FactCheck.org project addressing common COVID-19 “misconceptions” owes its existence to a philanthropic organization that has around 15 percent of its assets tied up in Johnson & Johnson stock.

The top of the project homepage reads as follows: “SciCheck’s COVID-19/Vaccination Project is made possible by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundation.”

Interestingly enough, Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-04) has discovered that 15.9 percent of the foundation’s assets consist of Johnson & Johnson common stock. Out of $11.9 million in assets, nearly $1.9 million has been invested in J&J. The figures come from a 2019 financial statement:

From Bizpac Review:

Wheeler’s epiphany: Portland mayor declares it’s time to ‘take city back’ from Antifa
After nearly a year’s worth of rioting and violence that has led to at least one high-profile murder, Portland’s Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler, is appealing to residents of his city to help stop the endless protests that have been largely led by the anarchist group Antifa.

How many millions of dollars have been wasted by this fekless idiot's pandering to the left. He could have shut the riots down in the first weekend.  Arrest the rioters and prosecute them.  Make sure that they get the message that rioting is not fun in Portland.  Send them to jail for 90+ days. $,1,000,000,000 bail.  Play hardball. They would have gotten the message in a few days.

The loss of business is tragic - good people's lives have been ruined by the little six-year old kiddies acting out.

This will be fun - epic battle

More like shooting fish in a barrel - from Breitbart:

Marjorie Taylor Greene: AOC Agreed to Debate Me on Green New Deal
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tweeted on Wednesday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) agreed to debate her over the Green New Deal.

Democrats regularly frame the Green New Deal as a legislative attempt to combat “climate change” and “global warming.”

Greene attached a photo of her and Ocasio-Cortez on the House floor to a tweet mentioning her New York colleague, “I’m glad I ran into you today … to plan our debate about the Green New Deal. After I finish reading all 14 pages, like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate.

AOC is funny when you get her off-message.  Not that bright.  She is another meat-puppet.
Should be a lot of fun if the media allow it to see the light of day.

Our own duly elected *Resident - from The Western Journal:

Black Lives Matter Says Communities Are Being 'Terrorized' More Under Biden Than They Were Under Trump
President Joe Biden is allowing police to become more of a threat to black Americans than former President Donald Trump ever did, at least in one aspect, Black Lives Matter now claims.

What? Didn't get that chunk of Federal lagniappe so you are lashing out like a petulant six-year-old?  Need to buy another mansion or two?

Grifters - pure marxist grifters.  Looking for $$$ and political power.

From FOX News:

Pelosi faces intense backlash after thanking George Floyd for 'sacrificing your life for justice'
Speaker accused of viewing Black people as pawns in her political cause
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is facing intense backlash after she thanked George Floyd for "sacrificing your life for justice" Tuesday following the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges.

No shit.  Good.  Stupidity like this should hurt.  She needs to retire from public office - she has enough money and has done enough damage. Her legacy is the homelessness and drug camps in San Francisco.

Nice of him to weigh in - from The Hill:

Obamas praise Floyd jury, urge more action: 'We cannot rest'
Former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama said the jury in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin did the “right thing” in finding the former Minneapolis police officer guilty on all charges brought against him in the death of George Floyd, but added that true justice “requires much more.” 

What is this moke trying to do? Burn down the nation? A bit more:

“We cannot rest. We will need to follow through with the concrete reforms that will reduce and ultimately eliminate racial bias in our criminal justice system. We will need to redouble efforts to expand economic opportunity for those communities that have been too long marginalized,” they said.

Actually Barry - we were doing really well for the last 30 years until you and your fellow travelers came along and decided that now would be the time to institute communism. Dr. Martin Luther King's whole idea of color of skin and content of character - we had that going really well. Your comments like:"If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon" and the liberal's anointment of murdered thugs as cultural martyrs really served to create the divide that we are now dealing with.

You are really good at tearing down the hard work of other people.  What are you planning to build.  Give us your five year plan.  Your manifesto. Whatch'a got?

Your morning Maxine

News Flash: Biden is polling at 59 Percent Approval Rating - from Pew Research Center:

Biden Nears 100-Day Mark With Strong Approval, Positive Rating for Vaccine Rollout
Joe Biden approaches the 100-day mark of his presidency with a relatively strong job approval rating and the public continuing to express positive views of the coronavirus aid package passed by Congress last month.

Stuff - and then the money shot:

Currently, 59% approve of the way Biden is handling his job as president, while 39% disapprove.

Them's the numbers - like it or not. But wait...  This is a long document.  Seven pages. Scroll down to page seven:

20210418-pew.jpg

So, your sample was 5,109 of which 33.39% were Republican or leaning and 63.67% were Democrat or leaning.

Bias much?

I would call that busted.  Totally and unequivocally busted. Busted with a side of fries and extra tarter sauce. 

Government in one simple meme

From My Pensieve:

20210418-federalism.jpg

The "activists" never ever want to fix anything.  If they did, they would be out of a job.

They make mouth-noises about the problems but their direct actions do nothing but intensify and exacerbate those problems.  They seek chaos, not relief.

Do not read the media stories that are published about these activists. Look. Watch. Listen. See what they actually do.  You will see that the media is lying to you and that what I just said is true.

Want to see something really sad:

20210414-riot.jpg

Imagine all the healing that could be happening right now. All the building.  What these activists are doing is counter to the interests of the people.  It is counter to the interests of civilization. Counter to the interests of life.

Follow the money - the border

Not surprising - from the Washington Examiner:

Ron Johnson launches investigation into $600M worth of no-bid contracts given to group with Biden ties
A Senate Republican has launched an investigation into the Biden administration's awards of two no-bid contracts for handling migrants, worth more than $600 million, to an organization whose senior director has ties to top Biden officials.

Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Health and Human Services to turn over all emails related to the contracts, as well as “any communications” between and among ICE and HHS employees or representatives of Family Endeavors, the group that was given the two massive contracts.

Someday, I would like to know who is making all the money off this.  Who is paying for the migrants to come here, who is profiting.  There is a huge scandal happening right under our noses and nobody is reporting on it.

Good to know - plan for the future

Looks like the 'rona is going to be with us for a long long time.
From America's Newspaper of Record - the Babylon Bee:

'It Is Still Not Safe To Go Outside,' Says Fauci's Head In A Jar In Year 2739
An intercepted transmission that appears to be from the year 2739 shows footage of Dr. Anthony Fauci -- or rather, just his head, which has been preserved in a jar. In the video from the future, Fauci says it's still not safe to go outside, go to movie theaters, or eat indoors.

"Honestly, even if you've been immunized and are quadruple-masking, per current recommendations, I don't think I would risk it," he said. "Although we eradicated the virus some seven centuries ago, we can't be too careful. We must remain vigilant."

"If we let up even a little bit, we could end up right back where we were in 2020."

More at the site and the last sentence nails it:

Despite the grim outlook for the pandemic 700 years in the future, Fauci says he is optimistic that he will remain in the public spotlight at least until the heat death of the universe.

He is another grifter.  No real substance to his career.  Graduated Med School and went right into administration.

Looks like even the color of your skin will not be enough to avoid the purge.
Content of character went by the wayside decades ago.
From The London Daily Mail:

Twitter BANS black reporter for criticizing BLM founder for buying $1.4m home in '88% white LA neighborhood' - as he slams big tech for making the movement a 'sacred cow despite its financial GRIFT'

    • Patrisse Cullors, 37, has bought an expansive property in Topanga Canyon
    • The district in which the BLM founder will now live is 88% white and 1.8% black
    • Critics accused her of abandoning her social justice and activist roots
    • Sports journalist Jason Whitlock was among those remarking on her purchase
    • Twitter on Friday locked him out of his account in response to his tweet
    • Whitlock told DailyMail.com he remains blocked by the social media network
    • Twitter is demanding he delete his tweet linking to a celebrity real estate blog
    • Whitlock says he remains 'in Twitter jail, because I won't post bail'
    • The action is the latest draconian step in censorship by the Silicon Valley firm

A prominent black sports journalist barred from Twitter for the 'crime' of discussing the $1.4 million house bought by a Black Lives Matter co-founder slammed the company for trying to silence legitimate debate.

Jason Whitlock, 53, told DailyMail.com on Monday that Twitter was 'going too far' by blocking him from posting to his account, which has nearly 450,000 followers.

The censorship by Twitter comes as social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook, have increasingly 'de-platformed' figures who stray too far from opinions they consider acceptable.

'BLM is one of Big Tech's sacred cows,' Whitlock told DailyMail.com 'I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years.'

'I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,' he said.

Pure marxism - grift and power.  Everything for the people until you cement your position at the top. Then?
Screw the people. Time and time again. Russia? Cuba? China? Venezuela? All the same.

The advantage with marxism is that it sounds reasonable to dumb people. They buy into it and enable the tyrant their power.
