Reason, rules, processes – these are the foundations of a free society, which is why the cultural left is so dead set against them. A citizen needs to be able to rely on clear rules and fixed processes to vindicate his rights in order to have any rights. But the rights of free citizens—your rights—are an obstacle to the Lil’ Stalins who yearn to rule over us. If the liberal establishment can create a society where you can’t appeal to facts, evidence, or law, then—until the peasants’ revolt—its poobahs can wield undisputed, undiluted authority. That’s their dream, a country where you live in terror of them because you can never be sure that what you are doing or failing to do is suddenly going to be criminalized.
Take the whole imbroglio about Stabby Girl, the teen psycho in Ohio who decided to filet a girl in front of a cop. Not surprisingly, to people who aren’t idiots, the officer ventilated her, saving the life of the innocent victim. But then, of course, the establishment and the media – including America’s #1 Matlock superfan—weighed in on how stopping this future felon was racist racism of racismness. Normal people were baffled, but then, it’s only if you haven’t been paying attention that you might think that non-criminal black lives matter to Black Lives Matter.
Now, let me put on my lawyer hat—no, I’m not your lawyer and consult one in your jurisdiction before you do stuff. There’s this basic Anglo-American premise in law—I know we’re supposed to pretend that our political and legal culture didn’t come down to us the British Isles but it did—that you can use deadly force in the defense of yourself or another when some bad actor is trying to cause death or great bodily harm. This is not subject to rational or honest dispute. With some minor tweaks, this is generally the rule and has been for over a thousand years. So, leaving aside that this is not only morally proper but a moral imperative, we have a clear law saying you can shoot someone to stop him, her, or xir from killing someone else.
Now, we take the facts (as revealed by the evidence) and apply them to the law. And here we have some pretty remarkable facts, all documented by unimpeachable evidence. Ma’Khia the Knife was caught on candid body camera in mid-slash when the officer, after calling out for her to stop, made his incredible four shots. So, there’s no meaningful dispute about how the evidence applies to the law. The facts and evidence disclose that he acted completely within well-established law.
Now, you might think this would present a problem for the fascists, but if you do you need to get woke. There’s no law anymore. Reason is a bourgeois conceit. They have figured out that you can simply deny the existence of law, evidence, and facts. And they figured out that Democrats like Grandpa Badfinger and the slobbering media hacks who engage in a perpetual media tongue bath of their lefty overlords will back them up.
See the problem? If you can’t rely on the law or the evidence, then you are at the mercy of the whims of the liberal elite. Sure, the cop did the right thing, and the evidence is indisputable that he did the right thing, but it doesn’t matter at all. The cop is wrong and subject to all sorts of sanctions not because he violated any rule but purely because it is useful for him to be guilty of something.
The Rule of Law has become the Rule of Power, which the bad guys possess for the moment. And they are so arrogant about it that they do not even bother to make a straight-faced argument against cops saving black children’s lives. Hey, it’s just a routine kid knife fight – no biggie. We all remember back in the day, hacking up other suburban teens with machetes and scimitars, and how the cops never bothered us. Not allowing black teens to be gutted is worse than Jim Crow—it’s Jim Eagle. Heck, it’s Jim Rodan.
And we all know if that punk planted a shiv in the other girl’s gut on the bodycam tape, the cop would be lynched for not stopping her. You can’t win, which is the idea.
You can’t have a society where normal people can’t possibly prevail by obeying well-established rules. You’re not wrong because you did something wrong but because you’re being wrong is handy for the people who hate you.
Today, we normal people can no longer rely on the law or the facts to protect us. We’re seeing this again and again. Scumbag losers threaten a family in St. Louis, who arm up to defend themselves, and they get charged. Some guy just wants to go home, get blocked by scumbag losers, and get arrested. On the macro tip, people who never owned slaves now somehow owe a huge debt over slavery to people who were never slaves. Guilt is determined not by law and evidence but by its convenience to the would-be tyrants. There’s no justice, just arbitrary exercises of power designed to reinforce the liberal paradigm. No matter how you act, no matter what you do, you are wrong, and if that requires tossing out the rules or ignoring the evidence, fine.
This is how our oppressors like it. But this is not how we like it. Normal people can only take getting bopped on the noggin by the southpaw monkey in the Nairobi Trio for so long before they hit back. You cannot have an enduring status quo where one side is firmly bound to rules and obligations while the other gets to make it up as they go along. Eventually, you will inevitably reach a breaking point. And that’s coming. Then the bad guys are going to miss the rules that they still expect to protect them.
Remember when characterizing entire groups of people with broad, unflattering stereotypes was considered unacceptable? Apparently the Biden administration doesn't, as evidenced by a recent Jen Psaki press briefing in which she said that the White House was trying to push their vaccine message to white conservatives by advertising on "The Deadliest Catch" (essentially a fishing show) and making outreach via Nascar and country music.
While not specifically referenced, we assume taxpayer-funded pro-vaccination ads are also being put on confederate flags and packages of chewing tobacco, while bumper stickers ("White Trash Matters - Get The Shot") are being handed out in trailer parks.
To be clear, Stilton's Place is in favor of the vaccinations (albeit not enthusiastically). So we'd like to give Jen Psaki a little advice: rather than assume that white conservatives are all inbred hillbillies who are just too dumb or obstinate to get vaccinated, why not work on your actual messaging?
Because it's just possible that some people are resistant to the vaccine push because it's coming from people whose torrent of lies puts Niagara Falls to shame. And for that matter, it's coming from people who clearly hate white conservatives and have consistently acted against their interests.
Or maybe it's because the Biden administration hasn't really made it clear what we can do when vaccinated that we can't do while unvaccinated? Can we gather in groups? Can we take off our masks? Can we put rusting wrecked cars on cement blocks in our front lawns and throw beer bottles into the crabgrass and then shoot at them like before the pandemic?
There could be some additional foot-dragging on getting The Shot owing to reputable stories about Covid-19 variants "breaking through" the Pfizer vaccine (although current efficacy is still high), and little "oopsies" like the discovery that the AstraZeneca vaccine can sometimes cause a potentially fatal blood clotting disorder. But, you know, only rarely.
But really, Jen, all of these considerations can be boiled down to just one salient point: the Biden administration has no credibility among white conservatives. None. So quit throwing our hard-earned money at TV commercials which run during professional wrestling and "Beverly Hillbillies" re-runs. Instead, try giving us yokels some straight truth or, better still, just shut up. More comics and humor at…http://stiltonsplace.blogspot.com/2021/04/cheap-shot.html
Every once in a while, you cannot help but notice that the people who rule over us are operating like primitives from another age. A great example is this video in which Susan Wojcicki, the head of YouTube, gives herself an award. The award in this case is for her support of free speech. While accepting the award, she brags about the efforts of YouTube to stifle the speech of anyone with whom she disagrees. You see, slavery is freedom, war is peace, and she is a hero of free speech.
The amazing bit is where she mentions that her family was chased out of Poland because they kept saying and doing things the Poles did not like. She says this experience that she did not actually experience, is what drives her now to drive people off the internet who say and do things she does not like. You see, back then it was bad, but now it is good because she is doing it. More important, she is justified in doing it because Hitler, which makes everything right.
This is, of course, a primitive mindset. When one band of savages sacked the village of another band of savages, they would erect their totem. The presence of their god in the form of that totem made it all good. Everything was seen in terms of the blood feud, so everything was justified. The people being savaged had it coming because somewhere in the past their ancestors did something to deserve it. Today the claim is the bad people are white, so they deserve whatever they get.
What makes the video amusing is she found a shiksa who is literally blind to present the award to her. First of all, a blind video maker is something from a bad script writer or a hacky comic. Putting that aside, the only person unable to see the absurdity of Wojcicki giving herself an award is a blind woman. This is Kim Jung-un giving himself “Humanitarian of the Year” or Nancy Pelosi, after a few jugs of wine, proclaiming herself the most sober person in Washington.
John Derbyshire used to say there is hope in the comments. This is where you see that people are not falling for the lies. This is why most sites have banished their comment sections now. YouTube is about to banish their down vote button for what you see in that video. There are 116 upvotes from YouTube lackeys and thirty thousand down votes from normal people. The comments tell the story. Primitive dirt-bags like Wojcicki can give herself awards, but she is not fooling anyone. Continue reading...https://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=23546
Here is another recent and excellent piece from the same website which you should read entitled The New One True Faith @ https://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=23572
No need to argue anymore about defunding the police. The police across America have been successfully disarmed and castrated. Why would any cop with a sense of self-preservation interfere in the commission of a crime now? Just assume that the social contract is cancelled. You’re on your own.
Interesting factoids, by the way: rape reports are up 322 percent in New York City over the past year, shootings were up 97 percent and murders up 44 percent — a good start to the new era of all-against-all, where life is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. But don’t worry, Benjamin Crump and his legion of super-hero personal injury lawyers stand ready to enforce the suspension of law, seeking multi-million-dollar payouts in civil suits, such as the $27-million recently settled on the family of George Floyd, which is $27-million more than Jesus of Nazareth got for somewhat harsher treatment years back, though, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, George Floyd has by far outpaced the old lord-and-savior in sheer saintliness mojo. Looks like George and Jesus will soon be vying for Speaker of Kingdom Come in the new, revised cosmos of American Wokery.
Anyway, New York’s City Council voted last month to end qualified immunity for police officers, which formerly shielded them from personal lawsuits in the performance of their duties. Predictable result: they will no longer perform their duties. This is on top of Mayor Bill de Blasio ending the age-old practice of posting bail for charged felons pending disposition of a criminal case. Meanwhile, the city’s main jail, Rikers Island, is scheduled to be closed down in 2026. Abolish incarceration! Well done, Big Apple!For the moment, Derek Chauvin is on ice, having served his purpose as sacrificial goat in a trial that had all the fateful velocity of the Chattanooga Choo-choo. No need to rehearse the prejudicial actions of Rep Maxine Waters (D-Calif), oval office occupant Joe Biden, sidekick Kamala Harris, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune newspaper, Minnesota AG Keith Ellison, and other workers on the railroad of justice. The case will surely go on to appeal and by the time it is finally adjudicated the old USA will be on ice, too — in the mortuary of lost civilizations.
Minneapolis police officer Kim Potter is teed-up next in the death of multiple felony suspect Daunte Wright, who was turning his life around when he made the impulsive decision to evade arrest on an outstanding warrant for gun possession. And on deck: Columbus, Ohio, police officer Nicholas Reardon, who (it’s said all over Twitter and cable TV) unfairly interfered in a knife attack between a couple of girls just going about normal teenage girl stuff in, like, their normal, playful way.
Critical Race Theory, and its enforcement arm, Systemic Racism, have got America in a full nelson, having put over the idea that any regulation of behavior among 13 percent of the US population is a crime against humanity — effectively rendering lawlessness a new social entitlement. Waiting to see how that works out as 2021 rolls forward. The weather didn’t cooperate much this week of the aforesaid events, so there was little action in the streets after the Chauvin verdict and all — except in Portland, Oregon, city of masochists, where the nightly riots continued as usual.Is there a problem with all this? Only that the remaining 87 percent of the folks who live in the USA have so far failed to identify these operations for what they are, an epic hustle — by which I mean the seeking and acquiring of advantage, including large sums of money, by underhanded means. Sorry to tell you: the responsibility for this is on the 87 percent who are craven and feckless enough to allow themselves to be hustled. What’s the payoff for them in this game? A sense of radiant, self-informed moral purity for consenting to be coerced by the hustlers. The endorphin rush must really be something, a little like a snootful of fentanyl-and-meth.
Notice, too, how all this racial psychodrama is an effective smokescreen for other nefarious actions afoot by the Democratic Party. I refer to the various bills moving through Congress now to pack the Supreme Court, turn the District of Columbia into the 51st state (to gain two more senate seats), and to institutionalize voting fraud across all the states (HR-1). Not paying any attention to that? It’s just a gang of power-hungry maniacs trying to destroy your country. That is, unless Joe Biden & Co. manage to start World War Three in Ukraine or Taiwan before that bidness comes to a vote. Oh, and here’s the moral of the story: life is tragic. Sometimes things don’t turn out… they just turn. Continue reading...https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/peak-national-dysfunction/

We have all seen this coming. Admit it.
“We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”—Ayn Rand
On April 15, 2021 Metallicman , a group of retired spooks that discuss things that you’ll not find anywhere else published on Metallicman dot com https://metallicman.com/laoban4site/buildup-to-a-second-american-civil-war-to-overthrow-the-elites-that-control-america/ :
‟Rule by brute force.”—That’s about as good a description as you’ll find for the sorry state of our nation.The list of abuses being perpetrated against the American people by their government is growing rapidly.
Our freedoms are already being made to disappear.
We have seen this come to pass under past presidents with their use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements.
President Biden’s long list of executive orders, executive actions, proclamations and directives is just more of the same: rule by fiat.
Now the Biden Administration is setting its sights on gun control.
Mark my words: gun control legislation, especially in the form of red flag gun laws, which allow the police to remove guns from people “suspected” of being threats, will become yet another means by which to subvert the Constitution and sabotage the rights of the people.
In Radley Balko's study of police raids of the homes of civilians for the CATO Institute, he described the mayhem currently taking place at the hands of federal and state governments in the United States in the name of law enforcement:
"Americans have long maintained that a man's home is his castle and that he has the right to defend it from unlawful intruders. Unfortunately, that right may be disappearing. Over the last 25 years, America has seen a disturbing militarization of its civilian law enforcement, along with a dramatic and unsettling rise in the use of paramilitary police units (most commonly called Special Weapons and Tactics, or SWAT) for routine police work. The most common use of SWAT teams today is to serve narcotics warrants, usually with forced, unannounced entry into the home.
"These increasingly frequent raids, 40,000 per year by one estimate, are needlessly subjecting nonviolent drug offenders, bystanders, and wrongly targeted civilians to the terror of having their homes invaded while they're sleeping, usually by teams of heavily armed paramilitary units dressed not as police officers but as soldiers. These raids bring unnecessary violence and provocation to nonviolent drug offenders, many of whom were guilty of only misdemeanors. The raids terrorize innocents when police mistakenly target the wrong residence. And they have resulted in dozens of needless deaths and injuries, not only of drug offenders, but also of police officers, children, bystanders, and innocent suspects."
- from the Executive Summary of a research paper titled,
Overkill: he Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids in America
by Radley Balko, CATO Institute.
These “red flag” laws, growing in popularity as a legislative means by which to seize guns from individuals. They are an excuse. The excuse sounds so reasonable. People who are viewed as a danger to themselves or others, have their guns removed. Yes, this is yet another Trojan Horse, a stealth maneuver by the police state to gain greater power over an unsuspecting and largely gullible populace.
Nineteen states and Washington DC have red flag laws on their books.
That number is growing.
As The Washington Post reports, these laws “allow a family member, roommate, beau, law enforcement officer or any type of medical professional to file a petition [with a court] asking that a person’s home be temporarily cleared of firearms. It doesn’t require a mental-health diagnosis or an arrest.”
Someone in the neighborhood doesn’t like you…
… they claim that you are a witch…
…or you are a communist…
…or a child sex offender…
…or are a danger to yourself.
In the midst of what feels like an epidemic of mass shootings (the statistics suggest otherwise), these gun confiscation laws—extreme risk protection order (ERPO) laws—may appease the fears of those who believe that fewer guns in the hands of the general populace will make our society safer.
Of course, it doesn’t always work that way.
SWAT team raids "The Garden of Eden" The beast is gaining more and more unbridled power to lash out as he did this week at "The Garden of Eden" - a small organic farm in Texas reported by a RT News. This is but one of many raids that take place on a daily basis throughout the U.S. In this case they held 6 adults at gunpoint and handcuffed them for 10 hours saying they were looking for marijuana. Throughout the day the police conducted their search, destroying parts of the farm in the process. However, the property owner Shelley Smith told the media, "They came here under the guise that we were doing a drug trafficking, marijuana growing operation. They destroyed everything.”
The residents believe the raid was only an excuse to allow them to change the farm's "unconventional appearance." Code enforcement cops came along with the SWAT team and Smith said that they had been issued a number of code violations recently including, “grass that was too tall, bushes growing too close to the street, a couch and piano in the yard, chopped wood that was not properly stacked, a piece of siding that was missing from the side of the house and generally unclean premises,” The cops found no drugs or criminal activity but arrested one of the members of the group for an unpaid parking ticket.
-Axis of logic
Anything—knives, vehicles, planes, pressure cookers—can become a weapon when wielded with deadly intentions.
With these red flag gun laws, the stated intention is to disarm individuals who are potential threats… to “stop dangerous people before they act.”
While in theory it appears perfectly reasonable to want to disarm individuals who are clearly suicidal and/or pose an “immediate danger” to themselves or others, where the problem arises is when you put the power to determine who is a potential danger in the hands of government agencies, the courts and the police.
It took place in August, 2005 when a SWAT team killed an innocent man in his home while his wife and 4 year old son hid in a bedroom closet in Sunrise Florida. After killing the man, the police claimed they knocked on his door and announced they were police. But according to neighbors who watched the scene unfold from their window, the police in black masks did not identify themselves before smashing down his door and using a flash grenade expecting to find drugs and guns. The neighbors said that if the police had yelled, "POLICE!" - they would have heard it. The police claimed that 23 year old Anthony Diotaiuto (a two-time Iraq war veteran) fled from his bed into another room and "armed himself." Radley Balko (quoted above) reported that the police initially claimed that he fled to the bedroom for a handgun and pointed the gun at them. Later, the story changed with a spokesperson for the police saying that the "found the weapon next to his body" after they killed him.
Diotaiuto returned from his night shift at one of the two jobs he had to provide for his family. According to his friends, he had a shotgun and handgun which he kept for protection with a valid concealed weapons permit. Balko surmised that he rose from a deep sleep, disoriented by the crashing of his door and flash grenade and ran terrified into another room. After they killed him, the police claimed that they found 2 ounces of marijuana, some plastic baggies and a scale. But by the time the case went to a jury trial, that amount of marijuana was determined to be 16 grams, a little more than half an ounce. The Broward County medical examiner reported 10 bullet wounds in his head, chest, torso, and limbs.
-Axis of Logic
We’ve been down this road before.
Remember, this is the same government that uses the words “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably.
This is the same government whose agents are spinning a sticky spider-web of threat assessments, behavioral sensing warnings, flagged “words,” and “suspicious” activity reports using automated eyes and ears, social media, behavior sensing software, and citizen spies to identify potential threats.
This is the same government that keeps re-upping the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allows the military to detain American citizens with no access to friends, family or the courts if the government believes them to be a threat.
This is the same government that has a growing list—shared with fusion centers and law enforcement agencies—of ideologies, behaviors, affiliations and other characteristics that could flag someone as suspicious and result in their being labeled potential enemies of the state.
For instance, if you believe in and exercise your rights under the Constitution ...
(namely, your right to speak freely, worship freely, associate with like-minded individuals who share your political views, criticize the government, own a weapon, demand a warrant before being questioned or searched, or any other activity viewed as potentially anti-government, racist, bigoted, anarchic or sovereign),
...you could be at the top of the government’s terrorism watch list.
Moreover, as a New York Times editorial warns, you may be an anti-government extremist (a.k.a. domestic terrorist) in the eyes of the police if you are afraid that the government is plotting to confiscate your firearms, if you believe the economy is about to collapse and the government will soon declare martial law, or if you display an unusual number of political and/or ideological bumper stickers on your car.
Let that sink in a moment.
Radley Balko’s White Paper, Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids in America:
Balko said that botched raids such as this one are not 'isolated incidents.' Other examples of SWAT teams misused are the hundreds of raids conducted each year at a wrong address. Often the people targeted are completely innocent, unlike in the Diotaiuto tragedy. Further, the 'no-knock' and 'quick-knock' raids often rely on anonymous tips and 'dubious informants to obtain the search warrants.'
The raids are intended to terrify. The police generally break down the doors with a battering ram or blow them off with explosives. Sometimes police use a flash bang grenade. Once inside, police force the occupants to lie prone, generally at gunpoint...
Now consider the ramifications of giving police that kind of authority: to preemptively raid homes in order to neutralize a potential threat.
It’s a powder keg waiting for a lit match.
Under these red flag laws, what happened to Duncan Lemp—who was gunned down in his bedroom during an early morning, no-knock SWAT team raid on his family’s home—could very well happen to more people.
At 4:30 a.m. on March 12, 2020, in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic that had most of the country under a partial lockdown and sheltering at home, a masked SWAT team—deployed to execute a “high risk” search warrant for unauthorized firearms—stormed the suburban house where 21-year-old Duncan, a software engineer and Second Amendment advocate, lived with his parents and 19-year-old brother.
The entire household, including Lemp and his girlfriend, was reportedly asleep when the SWAT team directed flash bang grenades and gunfire through Lemp’s bedroom window.
Lemp was killed and his girlfriend injured.
No one in the house that morning, including Lemp, had a criminal record.
No one in the house that morning, including Lemp, was considered an “imminent threat” to law enforcement or the public, at least not according to the search warrant.
So what was so urgent that militarized police felt compelled to employ battlefield tactics in the pre-dawn hours of a day when most people are asleep in bed, not to mention stuck at home as part of a nationwide lockdown?
According to police, they were tipped off that Lemp was in possession of “firearms.”
Thus, rather than approaching the house by the front door at a reasonable hour in order to investigate this complaint—which is what the Fourth Amendment requires—police instead strapped on their guns, loaded up their flash bang grenades and acted like battle-crazed warriors.
In May, 2010 Joseph Weekley, a Detroit cop shot and killed Aiyana Stanley Jones, a seven-year-old girl when they raided a home during the early morning hours as she lay sleeping on a sofa in her home on Lillibridge Street in Detroit. Aiyana was shot in the head and neck. Assistant Police Chief Ralph Godbee said the heavily armed "Special Response Team" was executing a "no-knock" search warrant for a homicide suspect and they threw a flash grenade through an unopened window around 12:45 a.m. before charging in with guns drawn but they got the wrong house. It may have never gained international attention except that it was recorded by a reality TV crew, which was filming an episode of “The First 48,” a program like "Cops" and other racist TV shows that feed off the misery of victims in praise of the work of US police.
In June, 2013 Weekley went on trial for involuntary manslaughter with a possible sentence of 15 years in prison. The cop claimed that he had "physical contact" with the little girl's grandmother, Mertilla Jones, after entering the home. On June 18, the trial ended in a hung jury and he is now to be retried. In the trial, Grandmother Mertilla testified,
"I saw the light leave out of her eyes, and blood gushed out of her mouth. I knew she was dead.” After the first trial, Mertilla stated, "He admitted he shot and killed her. He's a dirty cop because he said I touched him. I never touched that man. ... I was never anywhere near Joseph Weekley. He's a lying [expletive] cop."
This is what you get when you live inside a Military Empire.
This is the blowback from all that military weaponry flowing to domestic police departments.
This is what happens when you use SWAT teams to carry out routine search warrants.
This is what happens when you adopt red flag gun laws, which Maryland did in 2018, painting anyone who might be in possession of a gun—legal or otherwise—as a threat that must be neutralized.
Therein lies the danger of these red flag laws, specifically, and pre-crime laws such as these generally where the burden of proof is reversed and you are guilty before you are given any chance to prove you are innocent.
Red flag gun laws merely push us that much closer towards a suspect society where everyone is potentially guilty of some crime or another and must be preemptively rendered harmless.
Where many Americans go wrong is in naively assuming that you have to be doing something illegal or harmful in order to be flagged and targeted for some form of intervention or detention.
In fact, U.S. police agencies have been working to identify and manage potential extremist “threats,” violent or otherwise, before they can become actual threats for some time now.
All you need to do these days to end up on a government watch list or be subjected to heightened scrutiny is use certain trigger words (like cloud, pork and pirates)…
…surf the internet,
…communicate using a cell phone,
…stay at a hotel,
…attend a political rally,
…serve in the military,
…purchase materials at a hardware store,
…take flying or boating lessons,
…appear confused or nervous,
…fidget or whistle or smell bad,
…be seen in public waving a toy gun or anything remotely resembling a gun (such as a water nozzle or a remote control or a walking cane),
…question government authority,
….generally live in the United States.
Be warned: once you get on such a government watch list—whether it’s a terrorist watch list, a mental health watch list, a dissident watch list, or a red flag gun watch list—there’s no clear-cut way to get off, whether or not you should actually be on there.
You will be tracked wherever you go.
You will be flagged as a potential threat and dealt with accordingly.
This is pre-crime on an ideological scale and it’s been a long time coming.
The government has been building its pre-crime, surveillance network in concert with fusion centers (of which there are 78 nationwide, with partners in the private sector and globally), data collection agencies, behavioral scientists, corporations, social media, and community organizers and by relying on cutting-edge technology for surveillance, facial recognition, predictive policing, biometrics, and behavioral epigenetics (in which life experiences alter one’s genetic makeup).
To that noxious mix, add in a proposal introduced under the Trump Administration and being considered by Biden for a new government agency HARPA (a healthcare counterpart to the Pentagon’s research and development arm DARPA) that will take the lead in identifying and targeting “signs” of mental illness or violent inclinations among the populace by using artificial intelligence to collect data from Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo and Google Home.
It’s the American police state’s take on the dystopian terrors foreshadowed by George Orwell, Aldous Huxley and Phillip K. Dick all rolled up into one oppressive pre-crime and pre-thought crime package.
If you’re not scared yet, you should be.
Connect the dots.
Start with the powers amassed by the government under the USA Patriot Act, note the government’s ever-broadening definition of what it considers to be an “extremist,” then add in the government’s detention powers under NDAA, the National Security Agency’s far-reaching surveillance networks, and fusion centers that collect and share surveillance data between local, state and federal police agencies.
To that, add tens of thousands of armed, surveillance drones that will soon blanket American skies, facial recognition technology that will identify and track you wherever you go and whatever you do. And then to complete the picture, toss in the real-time crime centers being deployed in cities across the country, which will be attempting to “predict” crimes and identify criminals before they happen based on widespread surveillance, complex mathematical algorithms and prognostication programs.
Hopefully you’re starting to understand how easy we’ve made it for the government to identify, label, target, defuse and detain anyone it views as a potential threat for a variety of reasons that run the gamut from mental illness to having a military background to challenging its authority to just being on the government’s list of persona non grata. Finally, add in the local police agencies and SWAT teams that are being “gifted” military-grade weaponry and equipment designed for the battlefield and trained in the tactics of war.
It all adds up to a terrifying package of brute force coupled with invasive technology and totalitarian tactics.
This brings me back to those red flag gun laws.
In the short term, these gun confiscation laws may serve to temporarily delay or discourage those wishing to inflict violence on others, but it will not resolve whatever madness or hate or instability therein that causes someone to pull a trigger or launch a bomb or unleash violence on another.
Indeed, those same individuals sick enough to walk into an elementary school or a movie theater and open fire using a gun can and do wreak just as much havoc with homemade bombs made out of pressure cookers and a handful of knives.
Nor will these laws save us from government-instigated and directed violence at the hands of the militarized police state or the blowback from the war-drenched, violence-imbued, profit-driven military industrial complex, both of which remain largely overlooked and underestimated pieces of the discussion on gun violence in America.
No matter how well-meaning the politicians make these encroachments on our rights appear, in the right (or wrong) hands, benevolent plans can easily be put to malevolent purposes. In this way, even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be—and has been—perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation.
The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.And what is next…

The great Bolshevik revolutions of the last century in Russia, in China, and in Cuba all followed a familiar pattern: a group of young, energetic, endlessly corruptible, but not yet corrupt outsiders take on, in the name of the people, a tired corrupt establishment.
A civil war ensues in which the people side with the revolutionaries because they (mistakenly) think that things can never be worse.
Revolutionaries win, slaughter the establishment elites, and proceed to rob and enslave the people in even more outrageous fashion.
In May, 2008, a SWAT team raided a home in Norwalk, Connecticut after a prostitute called the police telling them that the home contained drugs and weapons. She gave the police a false name and after the killing no weapons were found but the police killed Gonzalo Guizan and dragged the home owner, Ronald Terebesi out in handcuffs. In February, 2013 taxpayers from 5 Fairfield County towns were ordered to pay $3,500,000.00 resulting from the raid on the residence in Norwalk that left Guizan dead, Terebesi traumatized and heavy damage done to his house. Reporter Jonathan Turley expressed his view of the $3.5 million settlement:
"Now, Easton First Selectman Thomas Herrmann insists that the settlement does not reflect any negligence by his officers or those of the other towns: 'While the defendants, police departments and officers from Darien, Easton, Trumbull, Monroe and Wilton maintain they were not responsible for the unfortunate death of Mr. Guizan, the insurers for the defendants, who will bear the full cost of the settlement, believed that it was best to resolve the matter rather than incur further attorneys’ fees, which were anticipated to be significant. The defendants concurred, further believing it was important to facilitate the Guizan family being relieved of the combined burden of litigation.'
"That seems a rather belated concern for the Guizan family since you first launched a virtual military assault on a drug allegation, then killed the unarmed Guizan, and then fought their claim for damages until you had little practical alternative but to settle."
The only thing the police found were two smoking pipes and a tin with a minuscule amount of drugs. Jonathan Turley described the raid and this part of his original story has since been redacted,
"One would have thought this was the alleged bin Laden raid, as it looked like a military operation in a war zone. Heavily armed police and SWAT teams raided a home owned by Ronald Terebesi based on a tip from a local stripper that she had a “dispute” with Terebesi. This sounds pretty harmless so far, but SWAT team members dressed in armor bore down on this home with flash grenades, snipers surrounding the house, and a virtual tank supplied to this police department after the cover up of 9/11 by DHS.
"When all was said and done, one man, Gonzalo Guizan, was killed and Terebesi was dragged from his home. Both of these men were unarmed, and had done nothing to warrant this raid, and in fact were cowering in a corner when the spray of bullets were fired."
Soon enough the old guard revolutionaries become every bit as corrupt as the ones they have replaced if not more so and the cycle repeats itself.
In America, the situation is rather farcically backwards.
In America, the corrupt establishment elites have decided to stage a Bolshevik coup against the American people rather than the other way around.
A Tsar fully in command of his own kingdom staging a coup against his own people is a bizarre development to say the least, and yet, here we are in 2021 America.
Like always, there are reasons.
First and foremost among them is the sheer scope of the nepotism and corruption of the American elites in business, government, technology, and the intelligence services.
This scope has very likely far exceeded anything previously known in human history.
Had the dimensions of the robbery perpetrated by the American ruling classes against the American people become widely known earlier, America could well have experienced a more typical revolution, one by the people against the elites.
Well aware of the possibility if not probability of such an outcome, the people who run America put in place a plan to make it all but impossible.
The plan involved the gradually escalating erosion of the limits on government powers put in place by the Constitution with a parallel erosion in the God-given rights guaranteed every American by the same document.
This was a fully bipartisan effort, put in place immediately after president Reagan departed office.
It is sufficient to observe the exponential increase in government versus private sector employment in America from 1988 to 2019 to fully grasp this point.
Stopping immigration from countries that have (or at least used to have) a tradition of personal freedom and limited government while throwing open the spigots for immigration from countries that have neither was the second part of the same plan.
The destruction of family values and Christianity in America was the third.
On the whole, the plan was a spectacular success.
Americans proved easy targets for propaganda on pro-gay rights and every other kind of moral depravity and have learned to bite their tongues and bow low whenever they heard the phrase: “diversity is our strength”.
White Americans learned to internalize guilt for something they had no control over – the very color of their skin.
Americans allowed themselves to become squeezed out of well-paying jobs by the elites-induced trifecta of low and high-skilled immigration and automation, with nary a whisper in protest.
All was going well for the elites until they had a panic attack, a freakout of unheard of proportions when a non-establishment person, Donald Trump managed to get himself elected president.
The problem for the elites inherent in Trump’s election was simple: they have not done much, if anything, to cover the tracks of their massive robbery of the American people.
That meant that when Trump assumed office even their best efforts would likely not be good enough to stop him from perceiving at least a glimpse of the true scale of their crimes.
There is a certain irony in the fact that being criminals themselves, the American establishment has found, in Trump, the one true nemesis.
For he is a New York developer who cut his teeth dealing with the New York building trades, which are, of course, a criminal element in and of themselves.
Trying to pin on Trump their own sins of sexual corruption, nepotism, embezzlement, etc. has not been a well-thought out strategy on the part of the American power elites.
This is simply because it enabled him to begin educating the American public as to the breathtaking scope of their own criminality.
And that pretty much explains what happened during the election of 2020; a coup d’etat against the American people, the American Constitution, and the American Republic itself.
Since the elites still very much permeate every hall of power in America, this is a one-off deal in which the rulers of a country set out to violently overthrow the very political structure of the country they are ruling, but, as they say, it is what it is.
The cover may be different, but the playbook is the same, so we are already being exposed to the oldies but goodies of…
Now we are entering into a new phase, that of secret trials with a predetermined outcome.
Apparently congressional Democrats are going to hold impeachment hearings (read Bolshevik tribunal) at a secret location with no rights whatsoever being afforded to the accused.
Unfortunately for all of us, however, the scope of their criminal acts is such that they cannot contemplate any due process without committing political and even non-political suicide.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said federal government programs that armed police “with the weapons and tactics of war” had led forces across the United States to become unnecessarily and dangerously militarized.
“The use of hyper-aggressive tools and tactics results in tragedy for civilians and police officers, escalates the risk of needless violence, destroys property and undermines individual liberties,” the ACLU said in a report.
It said police forces set up special weapons and tactics (SWAT) units initially to face emergencies such as hostage situations and active-shooter scenarios.
But after studying more than 800 SWAT deployments conducted by 20 law enforcement agencies between 2011-2012, it said the specialized teams had moved away from that original role and were increasingly used to search people’s homes for drugs.
It said the raids were often violent, involving 20 or more officers armed with assault rifles and stun grenades, breaking down doors and windows, and screaming at occupants to get on the floor. It said children were present on numerous occasions.
The ACLU said the militarization of policing was also evident in police training that it said encouraged officers to adopt a “warrior” mentality – something it said was reinforced by the use of equipment such as battering rams, flashbang grenades, and armored personnel carriers.
It said the shift in culture was partly driven by U.S. Supreme Court rulings that gave police increased authority to force their way into homes, often in narcotics probes.
All things are on the table right now, including things that now sound crazy like setting up a parallel Supreme Court having declared the Constitution illegitimate because it was written by white males some of whom supported slavery and ratified without African American and other minority votes.
Needless to say, such actions may well precipitate an armed conflict we know of as civil war, but that would not be an unexpected outcome for the elites.
We know now that the American intelligence services all work for the elites and not for the people.
They will fight on their side in the coming war. What we don’t know is to what degree the armed forces have been infiltrated, especially the mid-level officer corps.
The outcomes of such cataclysms are never possible to predict, but we know what we know.
American ruling classes have long since betrayed her and her people to make themselves fabulously, generationally rich and powerful.
They could have cut a power-sharing deal with the American people as represented by president Trump; his hand has always been open to them.
They didn’t take him up on it.
Massive anger is building up in America now and the battle lines are drawn: either the American republic overthrows her own criminal elites or they overthrow her.
Which shall it be? To quote the Commander in Chief of the forces of light: “we’ll see what happens.”
Nothing is going to happen domestically. People are getting ready, ready, ready but there isn’t any “trigger” that will enable the unleashing of holy terror internally.
If something is going to happen, then it will happen externally.
Which brings up all these “waltzes” and “dances” that the Biden administration is involved in regarding other nations. It’s very blatant and “in your face”. Here’s my terms, you lowly Chink.. you lowly scum Russki… you evil Iranian… accept them or we will squelch you like the vermin you are.
Is it intentional? Or is the leadership complete morons? It’s difficult to tell these days. So I must ask…
What is the end game?

We live in an insane asylum pic.twitter.com/1YTb9jxxC8— Milly 👁 (@milli_vanillii) April 27, 2021
I'm NOT so worried about eating out...since this lock-down has pretty much "cured" me of my eating out rituals. "Eating IN" allows you to choose who is in the room with you--the smarter choice in 2021 at least!~
What I AM CONCERNED ABOUT is my favorite hobby of both yard sales and thrift shops (used furniture, clothing, bedding, linens, etc.)
I am in the market this week for "gently used" bedding which I have purchased in the past (after my puppy peed
on my duvet.) NOW...I am hesitating going to my local thrift--which also supports one of our churches--and
need to evaluate my pattern of shopping--PERIOD.
ONE EXAMPLE ON "SHEDDING"--
An exclusive Florida school (with tuition around $25,000 per year per child) has notified its staff and clients
that they should AVOID ALL VACCINES from this point on.
They site research on-going now, that there is reasonable supporting evidence that people who have been vaccinated DO SHED SPIKE PROTEINS. Among other things (read the full transcript from one video up on GLP yesterday) the "shedding" from vax'd individuals to NON-VAX'D individuals is showing serious harm to reproductive systems of both males and females. They have also stated they will NO LONGER EMPLOY
ANY STAFF who have taken the shots. So, this isn't just VAX "WOO-WOO"--this is mainstream news FROM A SCHOOL NOW.
If there is shedding from these "experimental shots" then we are needing to be CAREFUL until more studies are done as to contamination in anything shared between folks that is "intimate"--say directly on your skin after being on another's...even WITH careful laundering. Notice:
(I don't call the shots vaccines as they really are NOT if you look up the definition of a vaccine--NO PROOF that these shots produce antibodies at all.)
Below is the FULL TRANSCRIPT of one of the current videos circulating on GLP that PROVIDES CLEAR INFO about the "shots" and the "shedding" information known as of April 2021. Read it...and be careful of USED ITEMS at yard sales and thrift stores until MORE STUDIES can be done:
This is the thread with the "featured video" (page 1 post 1)
where I have transcribed this important report. This is
NO JOKE, folks:
FROM THIS THREAD post 4-26-2021
Thread: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COVID-19 VACCINE SPIKE PROTEIN SHEDDING, Doctors think the vaxxed should be quarantined! 89 more shots on the way! (Page 6)

note: I have not altered nor added my own words to this transcription of the bitchute video on the above
referenced thread. It is word-for-word (except for my
spelling or punctuation errors.) It was difficult to
transcribe since it is NOT my own field--but I believe you will have a better idea of the "shedding theory" that some are embracing--and WHY it is so "concerning" between VAX'd and NON-FAX'd individuals. I hope you will take the time to read it.
When studies are done on injections which are thought to be "vaccines"Last Edited by The Oracle's Cookie on 04/27/2021 07:53 AM
...we sometimes need 7...10...or even 15 (fifteen) years to really understand
what the injection does to the body and what it does to those around us.
So...there is AUTOMATICALLY this assumption that when the authorities tell us these injections are "safe"...that we actually have enough adequate data
and ADEQUATE OBSERVATIONAL DATA...to understand whether or not
these injections are indeed "safe." Bottomline is that we actually don't have adequate data to understand its safety.
Another thing is...we are made to believe in the public eye that this is a vaccine against a SARS COVE-2 viral infection.
So, the ENTIRE world is thinking that...um...this is a vaccine to protect us AGAINST the SARS Cove-2 virus INFECTION. And, when you have a vaccine that is supposed
to be EFFECTIVE as a vaccine against SARS Cove-2 infection...you are supposed to have ANTI-BODY IMMUNITY against the SARS Cove-2 virus. And...that has never been evaluated with these injections to see whether or not we gain antibody immunity against the SARS Cove-2 virus.
INSTEAD...what we have is the genetic information of what is "believed to be a PIECE of the SARS COV-2 VIRUS--and that PIECE is called "The SPIKE PROTEIN."
...And, The technology that is being used in this vaccine is the technology to make the injection (that's never been used in vaccine science or methodology before with any kind of success)...We are essentially taking the genetic instructions that make a synthetic spike protein--believed to be a part of the SARS Cove-2 Virus--and we are giving those sets of instructions into the human body and asking the human body to take the genetic instructions of that spike protein to make more of it with our own body's machinery.
So this "messenger RNA technology" (which is what it is called) is delivering the genertic information for us to MAKE THE SPIKE PROTEIN. The problem is that no study has ever been done to test the spike protein safety. Also, there has never been any study to determine
that once the spike protein production is TURNED ON...whether or not the spike protein production is ever TURNED OFF! And so, spike proteins in the NATURALLY OCCURING SARS COV-2
viral infection has been shown to cause: brain inflammation and neurological damage, heart attacks, lung disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and interacting with male and female
reproductive systems along with effecting blood binding to oxygen and blood clotting.
So we KNOW that the natural disease of the SARS COV-2 virus--because of the effects of the
spike protein--is making people SICK with all of these kinds of systemic illnesses.
NOW...We are taking that spike protein genetic instruction and we're asking our bodies
to make MORE OF THAT SPIKE PROTEIN... And so by making more of the spike protein (ourselves
in our own genetics) we are essentially creating the symptoms and the illness of Covid-19
by giving people the POTENTIAL to have brain damage and neurological damage, heart attacks,
lung disease, liver disease, strokes, kidney disease blood clotting issues, and male
and female reproductive impairment.
There are no studies to SHOW when the body STOPS MANUFACTURING THE SYNTHETIC SPIKE PROTEIN--whether or NOT we EVER turn off the production of the spike proteins. We KNOW THAT THE SPIKE PROTEIN IS PRETTY DAMAGING TO HUMAN TISSUE. We know that spike proteins have been found in saliva...
it has been found in the anus...and we have to ask the question: "Does it come out in the
exhalation molecules in our breath? Is it in the structure of our skin when we sweat and
we smell--do the spike proteins COME OUT and if so...does that effect those around us?
So what we have beens seeing is a massive increase in those who have been given the injection --blood clotting problems, miscarrages, stillborns, inferty, strokes, heart attacks,
auto-immune diseases and death just to name a few. and...That's for those who have been injected.
So, Certainly, there should be a suspicioun when you see people AROUND the injected people --who have NOT been injected--beginning to get the TYPICAL SYMPTOMS as COVID as well as the miscarriages, bleeding, missed/IRREGULAR MENSTRAL CYCLES etc. IT should be a VERY VERY STRONG suspicion.
SECOND PART OF THE TRANSCRIPTION:
The SPIKE PROTEIN IS WE ARE TOLD JUST SPECIFIC TO THE SARS COV-2 VIRUS. So,
that when your body makes the synthetic spike protein you are SUPPOSED TO PRODUCE
AN ANTIBODY THAT KILLS THE SPIKE PROTEIN. Now, we don't know that once the body
begins to make the the spike proteins if it just keeps going and going...and that would make the antibody production going and going as well. And the THING IS...WE ARE
FINDING NOW that the genetic instructions of the SPIKE PROTEIN ARE NOT JUST SPECIFIC
TO THE SARS COV-2 VIRUS.
The genetic instructions of the SPIKE PROTEIN are ALSO similar to--or the same--as the
many many proteins already EXISTING in the human body itself. And so therefore, if we
are going to produce antibodies against the genetic structure of the SPIKE PROTEIN...those antibodies are going to find Every bit of protein tissue in the body that MATCHES THE
GENETIC INSTRUCTIONS OF THE SPIKE PROTEIN.
THAT ANTIBODY TO THE SPIKE PROTEIN GENETIC INSTRUCTION WILL THEN PRODUCE AN ATTACK
ON ANY OF THE PROTEINS AND TISSUES IN THE BODY THAT ARE SIMILAR OR THE SAME AS
TO THE GENETIC STRUCTURE OF THE SPIKE PROTEIN.
FEMALE GUEST: So that is why we can expect AN increase in AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASES COME UP.
NARRATOR: Yes...So that is why you'll see auto-immune diesases...BUT...MANY MONTHS
AGO...there was an article in a European medical journal literature where there were several
proteins in the male and female REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS that were found to have similar
genetic instructions to the genetic instructions of the spike protein.
The scientists expressed their concerns that if we were to inject the genetic instructions of the
spike proteins into the body and CAUSED THE BODY TO MAKE AN ANTIBODY AGAINST THE
GENETIC INSTRUCTIONS TO THAT SPIKE PROTEIN...WE WOULD ALSO CAUSE THE BODY TO MAKE
AN ANTIBODY AGAINST THE MALE AND FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS because they had similar
structures in their proteins.
They raised a very strong concern about it as it would basically immobilize and
TAKE OUT THE SPERM from being able to cause fertilization of the egg...that it
would ALSO IMPAIR THE EGG ITSELF...and it would impair the placenta. And so, the
"experts around the world" did the following: When they heard this scientific conern
...their expert response was to say: "Oh, the amount of the of genetic proteins of the
male and female genetic instructions is SO SMALL in similarity conpared to the genetic instructions
of the SPIKE PROTEIN...that it "really shouldn't make a difference."
So, lady and gentlement, that is how we come up with the "science" that says:
"THERE SHOULD BE NO CONCERNS ABOUT INFERTILITY AND MISCARRIAGES AND MEN AND
WOMEN. So therefore...it didn't matter!
There were NO STUDIES...there was just an "opinion" that said the genetic instructions
on the proteins of the male and female reproduction systems were such SMALL
SIMILIARITIES to the spike proteins...that it didn't matter.
So what we are seeing with women who are getting the injections are a
huge increase--100's of percentages of increase--in the miscarriages and
stillborns in their babies. All of these are being reported to the VAERS.
And now what we are seeing is women WHO ARE JUST "AROUND" OTHER WOMEN (WHO HAVE
HAD THE INJECTION) ARE HAVING THE SAME SYMPTOMS.
This has to RAISE THE SUSPICION that not only does this messanger RNA make
the body prouce spike protein on an on-going basis...but that SPIKE PROTEIN
IS probably "SHEDDING" OUT OF THE BREATH...THE SALIVA...THE SKIN...and who knows
where else the sheding might occur.
JUST THIS ONE LAST POINT:
THAT is just what we THINK THAT WE KNOW AT THIS POINT. However, myself and Dr. 10-penny
believe ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS THERE IS REASON TO BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE OTHER
mRNA messenger protein instructions in the vaccincines to make all sorts of proteins that
we may NOT EVEN BE AWARE.

The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.
Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.
Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.

You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.
NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.
It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as 'The Factory,' which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.
