Portland police push back…

leave a comment »

Antifa thugs had set fire to Portland’s North Precinct Friday night and committed all the other crimes as they have done elsewhere.  But on Saturday night,  when the rioters were trying to barricade the Central Precinct,  Portland police in riot gear  marched forward,  using their batons and body blocking to move the rioters aside.   Many rioters  ran away from the cops,  no doubt wishing to protect their tender little snowflake asses from some baton taps.  The part I liked best in the video is the white woman trying to confront a smaller police woman.   The lady cop does not give one inch.  Good for whoever allowed the cops to do their jobs!

Herschel Walker offer…

leave a comment »

Herschel Walker was a football star at the University of Georgia before spending a dozen years as a star running back in the NFL.  Add bobsledder,  sprinter,  and mixed martial artist to his resume.   He is also an enormously engaging man who possesses abundant common sense and a delicious sense of humor.

Through Twitter he  has offered  to work with airlines in order to fly those who don’t want any police to countries which don’t have any.  Why do I suspect that his generous offer to make  malcontents happy  will be met with shrieks of outrage from all on the Left,  despite Mr. Walker being black himself.   Those too afraid of COVID-19 to fly can move to the group of cities in this country which effectively have no law enforcement.   Mr. Walker was raised in poverty,  but his family taught him values and ethics,  and he has passed those on to his own son.  This comes after he volunteered to be a black leader to help Congress come together to work on easing racial tensions and promoting real change.   I don’t believe anyone has been smart enough to take him on on that,  either.

How can…

leave a comment »

Rush Limbaugh points out how to spot  media bias:  the peaceful armed protesters in Michigan were described as domestic terrorists, while  the rioters  in Minneapolis  who have looted a Target store and damaged many others are characterized as mere protesters.   he media has done the same thing for Antifa and other left-wing loonies.  I have been waiting a long time for someone to explain how destroying a black business help the cause of a black man essentially killed by bad cops,  or how lawless behavior makes your protest more noble.

Wise cop…

leave a comment »

A New Jersey  gym opened  up to its members Monday morning in violation of Gov. Murphy’s orders.  FOX News had host Pete Hegseth there as well as a camera crew.   A police officer did appear,  informed the crowd of about 200 that they were in volition of the governor’s order,  then wished them all a nice day and waked away to the group’s loud approval.  Similar scenarios are being repeated daily across the country,  but in some cases,  power-mad governors and mayors insist law enforcement arrest violators.    No one has mentioned that the police units who showed up to face off with the  Michigan protesters  were not beat cops,  but riot squads and SWAT teams,  in full armament and gear.  The reason they did nothing is that the protesters were armed.

We now know that Vitamin D increases our defenses against coronavirus,  so getting outside in the sun and exercising improves not only our immune systems,  but also our mental health.  Multiple studies show that the coronavirus is far less transmissible  outdoors.   Democrats and other lock-down proponents are  shifting the  goal posts from not overwhelming the health system,  to flattening the curve of new infections,  to testing everyone,  to having no new cases,  to having a certain cure,  to having everyone vaccinated.    Don’t kid yourself — progressives don’t give a damn about you or your family as individuals,  only  as votes or a part of a group useful as campaign props, then discarded.  You would matter much more if you were an illegal alien,  because they’d be fairly sure you’d stay on the government plantation,  unlike the ungrateful blacks and others who have escaped.  Always remember that the goal is to have government be afraid of you,  not for you to be intimidated by the government.   That could loosely be called Irish democracy,  when the people run over the government,  or civil disobedience,  which is so much more high-toned and is reserved for Antifa thugs and other groups the Left approves of.

The owner of  this group  of restaurants is being prosecuted,  unconstitutionally in my view,  by former Congressman Keith Ellison.  one could conclude that Ellison’s being a Muslim would make him inimical to establishments favoring alcohol,  But he has been quite happy to cheer on the street violence of Antifa.   Normal Americans are beginning to rebel against overbearing government,  and it is right that they should do so.   It’s also high time.

Oh Canada, overreaction?

leave a comment »

Canada’s newfound thirst  for disarming  its citizens practically guaranteed that police would accost a restaurant employee dressed as a Star Wars storm trooper because the costume included a fake  plastic blaster.   For being part of the eatery’s promotion she got ridiculously  rough treatment  and a bloody nose.

Sometimes karma is a lazy little bitch,  but in this instance she was Frances Fleet of Foot!

35 years cold…

leave a comment »

…but never forgotten.   DNA has solved a 35-year-old murder case,  making  justice delayed,  but not denied.   Hats off to the police who didn’t quit,  and to the scientists who used modern technology to find the killer.

Lesson not learned…

leave a comment »

British police have had to pay the same street preacher for a  second time after arresting him for preaching the Gospel.  Before you laugh too scornfully,  realize that American cops have done the same thing more than once.

Change your diet!

leave a comment »

If you are a criminal and pass  gas so  loudly that the cops find you,  your dietary practices are seriously in need of an immediate overhaul..   Your standards for personal hygiene may also be suspect…

Norris photos intimidate…

leave a comment »

mere photo of Chuck Norris in action has been deemed as too intimidating and threatening for the police in Quebec to use against a crowd.  Of course a political-science professor filed suit against the 9 policemen who transported an agitator at the G7 summit in a van adorned with images of the action hero.

Doughnut disaster…

leave a comment »

We all make fun of doughnut-inhaling cops,  so we shouldn’t be surprised that they have  made fun  of themselves with a burned-out doughnut truck.

UPDATE:  Krispy  Kreme has  stepped up with a big delivery to make up for the loss of the burned out truck and the delicious treats.  now that is some sweet corporate responsibility!
