The U.S. civilian population may soon find itself up against a military that cannot prevail elsewhere.

#6  @#4: Rachael Correy planted her a$$ in front of a bulldozer. Any damn fool can figure out when one of those things start up, engage the transmission and begin to move forward. Ms. Babbit was merely part of a crowd and was fired upon by one of "America's Best" without warning.

#16  I liked reading Murat. He seemed to have an honestly different take on events and trends. I thought he was wrong more often than not--for example on the EU. Within living memory Greece had nasty dictators--Greeks could easily have a more relatively benign view of Belgian rulers than somebody from France would.

Maybe he deteriorated before he left--I wasn't reading the site for a while. (It can take a bit of time.)

#23  Chairman of the Joint Chiefs says Critical Race Theory is important, blames Capitol Riot on ‘White Rage

What, no mention of Antifa and the nutjobs and their roles? Millie has become a poque and a tool for pushing this leftwing narrative crap. Many of the videos of Jan. 6th show that capital police and others LEs seemed to be inviting protesters into the House. LE also appeared to way undermanned on the 6th.

#24  I've been reading Rantburg for about 15 years. Today is the first time I've heard of 'Horseshoe'. Have you had another name in the past?

As for the General. He spoke of 'White Rage'. I saw no rage there with people wandering around the capitol building (after being invited in). There were a few (but not thousands). And if he doesn't know what the people were upset (but not raging) about then he's must be pretty ignorant - or stupid enough to believe CNN.

Raucous Virginia school board meeting on transgender rights cut short
[NYPOST] Two people were arrested during a fiery
...a single two-syllable word carrying connotations of both incoherence and viciousness. A fiery delivery implies an audience of rubes and yokels, preferably forming up into a mob...
public meeting Tuesday night of an embattled Virginia school board, which cut off public comments when a fight erupted during discussions on a proposal on transgender rights, according to reports.

More than 300 people attended the raucous meeting — many voicing opposition to the proposed Policy 8040, which would require teachers to use a child’s preferred gender pronouns, Loudoun Now reported.

Former state Sen. Dick Black also assailed the board for its push to include Critical Race Theory

...teaches that skin color is the most important characteristic of any person, which translates to separate but equal with a different bunch in charge. All whites and Asians are born racist and racism permeates every aspect of society, which should be dismantled and the remains turned over to the kind of dipshit who pushes this nonsense...
in the curriculum, claiming that it teaches kids to hate others because of their skin color.

The crowd repeatedly cheered public speakers who slammed school board members and denounced the plan that would provide bathroom and locker room access based on students’ gender identities.

Transgender student-athletes would be allowed to participate on teams based on their gender identity, and teachers and staff would be required to use students’ preferred pronouns.

#3  It costs money to hire a tutor or to pay for a private school and then you're still stuck paying taxes for the public schools. It's cheaper to fix the schools.

This is correct. Even with supposed "local control," a parent or group of parents is up against a leviathan. You can't override the teachers unions. Better to leave the public schools entirely

Biden announces crackdown on guns and will let states and cities seeing crime surges use $350 billion in COVID relief to hire MORE cops after defund the police gutted forces across the US
[Daily Mail, wenre America gets its news]
  • President Biden said summer spike in violence would worsen as U.S. reopensHe said no-one needed weapons firing 100 rounds, unless they thought 'the deer are wearing Kevlar vests'

  • Homicides rose 30% and shootings spiked by 8% in large cities last year

  • President laid blame squarely on the proliferation of guns on Wednesday

  • He promised a 'zero tolerance' policy for gun sellers found breaking the law

  • Biden, 78, is carefully straddling his opposition for the extreme 'defund the police' movement and fulfilling his promise to deliver concrete judicial reform

  • Republican AGs warned last year the summer riots would lead to a crime surge

  • Gun rights advocates have criticized Biden for pointing the finger at gun dealers rather than criminals

-Land of the Free
Biden': 'If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.''
"And after President Joe Biden nuked the suburbs of Columbus, Omaha, San Angelo. Natchidotches, Louisiana and Senatobia, Mississippi, there was peace throughout the land as a docile population pooled their remaining money for reparations, Spanish lessons, and the construction of new mosques in every city, town, and village"

This is the perfect illustration of the difference between being ruled and being governed. Obama was "ready to rule from day one" and the Tea Party is no more. (Oh? You thought it died a natural death?) Trump attempted to govern as a mediator between equal parties. He argued, he called names, he pointed fingers, but Think Progress and Move0n keep ticking right along. The French, Russian, Italian, and even German resistances all operated under the assumption that even if you don't have artillery, you can quietly kill the artillerist. There are consequences, of course. Just ask Lidice. I consider killing Heydrich to be Right, nuking Omaha to be Wrong.

POTUS: you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.
Yes, the dems are really that stoopid.

Every time gun control devolves into taunts about men with rifles against a government with jet fighters and nukes, I explain that Chechens fought the Russian Army to a standstill, twice.

And history, recent history, is replete with similar examples of men with guns fighting a modern military to a standstill.

In a fight between an insurgency and a government, my money is on the insurgents.


Kurt Schlichter gives journalists some questions to ask the president after his comments about needing F-15s and nukes to fight the government
Twitchy has the Twitter series (thread?), which gets pretty technical. I now know what BCTs are. Also tweets from a few others on the subject, like Dana Loesch.

#6  The expected words from someone who comes to power in a putsch. They think they've taken everything because they own the election machinery and feds. History tells us these things are only strong until a population decides to put up with a constitution. The day they realize it doesn't mean jack shit anymore...

As for fighting in urban environments, unless the Leftist Government is willing to raze its own substructures of power, paint themselves the scum of the earth, it will be Ceaușescu-ed with hunting rifles, baseball bats and dynamite. If inbred pashtuns with 80s gear and low tech tactics can force the American military to the arm-wrestling tables, I have much greater faith in Bubba with his S&W3000 and Todd with his military XP.

What's more, the deepState itself will prevent the crazy Left leadership once a physical clash begins to ramp up.

A considerable use of militant force could actually bring the real deepState to its senses and force it to negotiate terms, cutting out the Dems and entrenched globalists. Not to mention, erect a real checks & balances edifice more in character with the ideal of a Republic. For bureaucrats and professional pols, after all everything is about money and the perpetuation of power to make money, right? Only some elitist loons in the Democrat party and a black marxist minority believe it's about re-making America. Cut them out and they're insignificant. Tie them off later, with the blessing of Washington 2.0 and consolidate control as a majoritarian Republic.

#9  ^ We don't have to look as far as Afghanistan. The gangs in Chicago don't have nukes or F-15's, but do have thousands of members, use guns routinely, and have yet to be suppressed by the authorities. If Biden wants gun control, let's see him start small: disarm the Vice Lords.

Biden suddenly OUSTS Border Patrol chief who supported the wall two days before Kamala's trip: White House prepares for immigration leadership overhaul - as 21 Republicans move to censure the president over migration crisis
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott announced in a Facebook post on Wednesday that he was told by President Biden to relocate, resign or retire

  • The announcement comes as the administration prepares to overhaul the agency amid a prevailing migration crisis

  • It also comes just two days before Vice President Kamala Harris plans to head to the U.S.-Mexico border

  • At the same time, 21 House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to censure Biden over his failure to secure the U.S. border

  • Biden put Harris in charge of dealing with the migration crisis in March

  • The announcement of a trip comes after Trump already said last week he will visit the border on Wednesday, June 30 – Harris will beat him there by five days

  • Trump released a statement Wednesday claiming Harris is only going to the border now because he decided to go to the border

  • He wrote: 'If Governor Abbott and I weren't going there next week, she would have never gone!'

Stacey Abrams Makes Millions Running Local Elections in Fulton County
[DJHJMedia] Stacey Abrams has found it to be extremely profitable to supply temporary workers for election in Fulton County elections. She owns a temporary agency, Happy Faces, that supplies the people who counted the votes in Fulton County, Georgia. How confident would you be in an election where Abrams decides who counts the votes? Sure, there is no conflict of interest there. And she got rich doing it.

Evidence presented at this morning’s public meeting of the Fulton County Commission shows former Democrat gubernatorial candidate and State Rep Stacey Abrams controlled and financed the main contractor used in Fulton County elections during the Nov 3rd poll and the Jan 5th U.S. Senate runoff.

Evidence showed direct financial underwriting of the staffing service Happy Faces Personnel Group, by groups controlled by Abrams. In other words, a highly partisan Democrat political operative controlled the elections in Fulton County, which also involved a Nigerian national.

And make money, she did. She provided temps for elections in Georgia amounting to $3,198,798.04! She also somehow managed to receive two Paycheck Protection Program Loans (PPE):

Socialist Wins Dem Primary in Buffalo, NY
Thank goodness I grew up in one of the very Republican suburbs despite it being where the University of Buffalo professors lived.
[NYPost] In a stunning upstate upset, Democratic-Socialist insurgent India Walton toppled four-term incumbent Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, an ally of Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Tuesday's primary election.
Brown refused to debate Walton and didn't campaign much. There were only about 15% turnout. Other Socialists picked up city council seats.
Walton, a 38-year-old mother of four and staunch union supporter, was propelled to victory, in part, through strong backing by the leftist Working Families Party; and will likely become the first female mayor in Buffalo's history.

"I became a mother at 14. The majority of my campaign's leadership team is working mothers. People like us often get told we don't belong in politics. But WFP [Working Families Party] believed in us and invested in us," she said in a statement Wednesday.

A self-described socialist, Walton was backed by the Buffalo chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Ballot count underway in NYC mayoral primary: Eric Adams has 10-point lead as Wiley, Garcia battle for second
[NYPOST] Eric Adams commanded a formidable 10-point lead of the first-choice votes in New York City’s hotly contested Democratic mayoral primary Tuesday. Late returns showed the Brooklyn borough president well ahead of the pack — but it will be a couple of weeks before a winner can actually be declared.

"New York City said our first choice is Eric Adams," he told a roaring crowd of supporters at his election night party in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

"Brothers and sisters, the race is not over but the movement is here," Adams continued. "New Yorkers said the more we know Eric, the more we like Eric."

"Tonight all of us, we are on the precipice of gaining the keys to the prosperity of our city."

The first round of the Democratic mayoral primary voting had Adams (253,234 votes), Maya Wiley (177,722 votes) and Kathryn Garcia (155,812 votes) one, two, three, with 96.62 percent of the precincts reporting.

But Adams, a former NYPD captain, has opened a daunting lead, with 31.66 percent of the 799,827 ballots counted as of 1:48 a.m.

With 99% of the precincts reporting, an abrupt stop in the count was noted at 4-5:01 AM this morning. The tally 'reset' with 60% of the 3 candidate exchanging numerical counts by extremely accurate talleys...one candidate received 56 thousand and 3/5th votes with the previous front runner loosing 19 thousand and 2/5th votes, with the 3rd runner upp candidate being disqualified because the district lines were moved in the afternoon of the election day.

As you know, this is New York, in a Democrat primary, anything can happen, you witnessed it so its legitimate according to our rules.

Biden to blame crime wave on guns rather than post-protest tolerance for lawlessness
How clever of him, to be sure.
[NYPOST] President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created ... by the — you know — you know, the thing......
on Wednesday will unveil a "zero tolerance" policy for "rogue" gun dealers accused of violating rules as his administration blames a national crime wave on guns and the COVID-19 pandemic rather than big-city pushes to defund the police and increased tolerance for lawlessness following nationwide police brutality protests.

The zero-tolerance policy will be enforced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — which may soon be led by David Chipman, an anti-gun activist whom gun rights groups are seeking to block from Senate confirmation.

The policy could have a significant impact on federally licensed gun dealers. In fiscal 2020, for example, the ATF performed nearly 6,000 inspections of licensees and found violations in about 44 percent of cases, though most received warnings or no penalty and just 136 of 2,550 violators lost their licenses.

Biden will announce the policy during a Wednesday speech addressing the surge in murders, shootings and certain other forms of violent mostly peaceful crime, such as carjackings. The speech will also underscore that localities can use COVID-19 relief funds approved in March "to hire more officers" for police forces, a senior White House official said.

Graham calls cartels, Taliban, China 'winners' in Biden administration
[NYPOST] Sen. Lindsey Graham
...soft-spoken senator from South Carolina, former best buddy of John Maverick McCain. Since McCain's demise, Graham has become more outspoken, more Republican and more of a supporter of President Trump. The speech he gave in support of Brett Kavanaugh was downright manly and really cheesed off the Dems...
accused the Biden administration (aka the Wilmington comorra)
...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know...
Tuesday of practicing "incompetent domestic and foreign policy" that is only benefiting criminals and US adversaries.

"All these policies are blowing up in the Biden-Harris administration’s face," Graham (R-SC) told Fox News’ "Hannity." "Six months since they’ve been in charge — let’s name the winners in the past six months.

"Drug cartels in Mexico, human traffickers and coyotes in Mexico, the Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
in Afghanistan, the Iranian ayatollah, Russia, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, and China have all been the biggest winners of incompetent domestic and foreign policy," the senator added.

The Department of Homeland Security is set to announce Wednesday that thousands of asylum-seekers whose claims were dismissed due to failure to appear in immigration court will get a chance to come to the US make their case, a move Graham described as another example of the White House being "incompetent and foolish when it comes to managing illegal immigration."

Curtis Sliwa cruises to easy win over Mateo in Republican primary for NYC mayor
[NYPOST] Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa cruised to a big victory as the Republican nominee for mayor, handily defeating rival Fernando Mateo following a feisty and entertaining primary fight, according to Board of Election returns released Tuesday night.

"Curtis won and we want to unite the Republican Party and we hope Fernando Mateo will join us," Sliwa senior campaign adviser Rob Cole told The Post.

It was a rout.

Sliwa captured 68.8 percent or 34,758 of the Republican votes to 27 percent or 13,655 votes for Mateo, a restaurateur who advocates for bodega owners and taxi drivers.

More than 95 percent of the precincts were reporting.

A victorious Sliwa stepped up to the podium at the Empire Steakhouse in Midtown to chants of "Curtis! Curtis!" surrounded by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and supermarket mogul and 77 WABC owner John Catsimatidis.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have just won the Republican Party in an overwhelming way," Sliwa said.

"It was a long period of time that took going door to door, street by street, subway station by subway station, and spreading the word. It could never have happened had it not been for John and Margo Catsimatidis. And to Rudy Giuliani, who endorsed me along with other major Republicans all over this city," he said.

Analysis says Biden's tax plan will effectively cut lower- and middle-class wages
[NYPOST] Here’s something new to worry about when it comes to President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. The very model of probity.......
’s tax plan: It could hit you in the paycheck.

A new analysis from the Tax Policy Center shows the White House’s plan to hike the minimum rate on corporate taxes to 28 percent from the current rate of 21 percent will effectively hit the finances of lower- and middle-income taxpayers to the tune of $300 — in the form of lower wages.

Some readers may have understandably been scratching their heads on Monday when the Tax Policy Center’s report got released, as its verbiage framed the hit as an actual tax increase.

"About three-quarters of middle-income households would face a tax increase averaging about $300," according to the paper by Howard Gleckman. "But nearly all would be a result of those higher corporate taxes."

Reached after the report’s publication, Gleckman clarified that the $300 was actually a reference to his projections of lost compensation. In addition to companies cutting wages to offset higher tax bills, Gleckman predicts that anyone with a 401K will likely see their net worth shrink as the tax plan deflates the stock market.
