So Romney's national security adviser was head of the CIA's counter-terrorism unit on 9/11. Doesn't that just frickin figure? Does he have useless fuck tattoo'd onto his forehead? I want to see their faces when the mobs loot Park Slope and Upper Manhattan and there's not a cop to be found. Bite the Big Apple, don't mind the maggots.

California's government is expecting a 20-25% reduction in revenues this year. They're smoking crack. 20% unemployment ain't gonna bring back the economy anytime soon. So all of these states that were on the edge are about to fall off, and when that happens the people who actually pay the bills are going to revolt. It's till the older rule, and these fucks have been misspending other people's gold for far too long.

This isn't about police brutality. It is about an edifice of incompetence and malice that we have allowed to fester in our cities for the past 50 years. The federal government has pumped trillions of dollars into the cities with little return on the investment. The schools pump out functional illiterates with no skills and no prospects except phony jobs programs and more money down the rabbit hole. The political largesse flows into the pockets of the politicians who keep the system in place to keep the donations flowing. The values we know that we know work; focus, hard work, and perseverance have been cast aside so that people can sit in their darkened living rooms and play video games. Then comes what looks more and more to be a phony crisis that has in itself caused a much grater crisis, both economic and behaviorally. How do you deal with a nation of unemployed neurotics? The Left and their enablers have pulled a Hail Mary. This mornings mass public vomiting by the "intelligentsia" was caused by a vicious media and their political allies. Mattis and the rest really are misinformed. The Left was out for Trump's scalp from day one and has never relented. And we have beed fed a steaming pile of horeshit by our leaders, none of whom is, actually, a leader.

They're protein DrJ! Nothing like a gnat in your cab! Narc, I love Christo. He brought so much color into the world one couldn't help but smile. His Central Park installation was awesome. The umbrellas in the Grapevine were a mad beach party in a way. I saw a couple of others over the years. Did I understand it? I don't think it was meant for us to understand, just to enjoy the folly of it all. LAPD should have busted those miscreants for not social distancing and wearing the approved mask of the day.

Anaheim went under curfew at 6:00 last night because of protests at City Hall, @ 3 blocks from home. Went out to dinner in Westminster at a great Vietnamese place and drove past Disneyland, where the K rails were in place with cops and park security keeping a presence. I expect Mickey Mouse was back there somewhere with a baseball bat. The protest was uneventful and the PD did a great job. No riot gear and de-escalated things. Daughter #1 had to drive from Hollywood to downtown this morning and the stores are all boarded up. She asked me for a gun yesterday. She is/was a liberal. The one thing the media can't hide is watching the looters run wild or the rioters throwing rocks and burning cars. SoHo, Midtown, Fairfax/Melrose, The 3rd Street Promenade, The greed and violence are on display. We infantilized our children and this is the result. They allowed the inner cities to fester under Democrat corruption, shitty schools and no hope. And all of the talk about income inequality is just bullshit. Everyone in my parents generation lived paycheck to paycheck except a few, and in my generation as well. Now the Left talks about income security as they cause the biggest economic meltdown in our history. It will be very interesting to see the Covid numbers in 2 weeks. If they are down, we know for certain that we have been had.

We had a case out here in the next town over of 4 cops kicking to death a homeless man named Kelly Thomas. Two kicked the sh*t out of him and two stood by. It is never right to beat the living crap out of someone, much as one would like to. We were glued to the TV last night watching the LA riots. Two of our kids and one of my nieces live within 1/2 mile of the Fairfax & Melrose intersection. Luckily my niece was down at her folks house last night, but the others were scared to death. They robbed the Beverly Center and The Grove, both high end malls. And reading the LA Times this morning made me sick to my stomach. Hardly any coverage of the looting while they interviewed veteran protesters and community leaders. The local news stations were all over the fires and were filming the looters running out of the stores loaded down. Those weren't protests, they were daylight and streetlight robbery.

How is it that pallets of bricks show up where the protests are? How is it that some mint from upstate NY tosses a Molotov cocktail into the back of a NYPD van?

Minneapolis was where a Somali born cop shot a young woman point blank and murdered her and got away with it. Maybe the real problem is with Minneapolis justice.

Any ME who concludes that quickly without substantial evidence and a file an inch thick is just plain nuts or crooked. Toxicology takes months to get back. Autopsies take a lot of time unless the cause of death is obvious, like a bullet hole. Even then they like to dig around. I'd ask for a second opinion. I'm going to guess that a lot of the rioters were locals from Mogadishu on the Mississippi. There's nothing like burning tires and bars and Targets to make them feel right at home.

I think Cuomo was relying on Ezekiel Emmanuel for advice regarding the nursing homes.

So we finally have our own Mogadishu. They planted it right in the middle of perhaps the most welcoming state in the union. Why is it that the reaction every time seems to be looting and arson? Some poor Kirean grocer or store owner gets ripped off and this is their cry for justice? There comes a point when justice must be equally applied to all and we are past that point. Do the crime. Do the time. With surveillance cameras we can identify the ones without umbrellas and masks and track down the others. Show up at these assholes doors with a iPad and ask them "is this you?" in the video and haul them downtown for 30 or 60 days.

If China is moving artillery up things just got more serious. I wonder if the Indians will call their bluff? India and China are near peers and if the Chinese don't dial back the aggression I don't think India will back down. I do believe India has Gurkhas as well. Don't mess with Gurkhas. China is about to get stuck in the corner, from what I am seeing.Rissia is now taking next steps in Libya trying to maintain an air presence, but perhaps the Turkish drones and other forces could make it less tenable than Syria. Much farther distance for resupply as well. Our enemies are, I think, miscalculating. Trump is better than Ali at rope a dope. But with pussies like the former commander of the Roosevelt throughout the military, who knows? We need warfighters if conflict does appear on the horizon. The Chinese are not emulating Sun Tzu. They are coming on like a kid who just finished wrestling season going up against seasoned pros. They have fought any kind of conflict since 1979 against Vietnam and they lost that one. Now that Wang has got a taste of big city life, I don't think he's going to react well when his buddies start dying around him. The Little Red Book just doesn't hold the allure anymore and why would he want to fight against the formerly peaceful people's of 20 different countries. Emperor Xi may need the external diversion simply to maintain power. Bad position to be in.

This is what happens when there is no brake by the authorities on violent conduct. Somewhere a cop is going to be shot in revenge for Floyd's death. The Left's victimization of African Americans is a targeted campaign to rouse the rabble to their flag. What I am afraid of is the backlash. If these riots and others continue, the rest of the country simply won't give a sh*t anymore about some Chicken Little's saying the sky is falling. Bad all the way around. We know who the bad actors are: Soros, Sulzberger, Bezos, the media as a whole, and the disgusting offal called Democrats in Congress. It is all of a whole. Scorched earth tactics eventually lead right back to the sources.

This is the same Minneapolis where the Somali gangs pretty much run wild, isn't it?

Manhattan is probably somewhere above 75% Karens. The UWS is the kvetching capital of America. Over on the UES the kvetching is just as bad, but is done in tony accents. There is, I think, going to be a lot of Karen on Karen fratricide coming over the next year or so, especially if Trump is reelected.

So what you're really telling us, JiB, is that China wants to re-establish its monopoly on tea so that we have to pay them in taels of silver instead of Treasury bonds?

The Acela corridor is ground zero in this whole dam thing. Population density, mass transit, and stupid government decisions all have contributed to the toll. California, Florida, Texas and elsewhere seem to be doing okay. But the media will cherry pick every single thing to keep the narrative alive. Screw them.

Harold M. Kennedy - DOW - February 4, 1944 - Anzio He survived one jump behind enemy lines in North Africa, Kasserine, jumped behind enemy lines at Salerno, fought alongside Darby's Rangers 10 miles down the road from Monte Cassino in the Italian mountains, landed in the first wave at Anzio. By the end of the war 7,000 men had passed through the battalion. They ended up on a hill in Belgium right after taking a village called Sadzot and were disbanded, only 40 men able to stand and be counted. And the New York Times takes this day to memorialize the Covid dead. We are living in a time of tragedy, but it shows tremendous disrespect for the fallen.

Did anyone in the media even read the transcript of the Biden - Poroshenko phone call? It's damning. We can argue about the past, but I think we need to keep our eyes on the future. What Sessions did or didn't do or whether Rosenstein was a white, gray, blue, mauve or black hat is irrelevant. We need to focus on crushing them at the ballot box. Trump ran a brilliant campaign in 2016. We need to expand upon that. Contrast DeSantis with Cuomo. Contrast the do-nothing House with Trump being in the line of fire every single day. Focus on the criminal conduct of Nadler, Pelosi, Clyburn, Schiff and the rest. There are no more rocks for them to hide under. Obamagate is, in fact, a thing and we need that to resonate in our communities. We need to offer hope where the Left offers despair. That's Reagan 101. It's going to hurt, but we are just now turning the corner. Things are going to be different but with a lot of hard work we can do better.

We have a vaccine for the flu and 62,000 deaths? We have none for the coronavirus and we have less than 100,000 dead to date. Didn't the governor's predict millions of deaths? Fauci? The experts? It's been rough but we've seen rougher. I got the LAPD rundown on side effects related to the disease yesterday and what they have seen is: 1) less arrests because of the low or no bail, including misdemeanor warrants. 2) homelessness has increased because of releases without plans (began with AB109 and Prop 47, but has increased with the pandemic) 3) crime is starting to creep up, but may be under-reported due to many factors 4) closing of front desks at police stations 5) decreased or eliminated enforcement of some crimes 6) traffic enforcement has been curtailed and citations have declined (less traffic) 7) child abuse reports down by 50% because mandated reporters (teacher, counselors, etc) are not making contact with the children 8) family and domestic violence is likely not being reported, unless it is at a crisis point 9) many social services have been eliminated from the field in Los Angeles County (Dept of Children and Family Services, Dept. of Social Services, Dept of Mental Health, Adult Protective Services) and are now done telephonically/remotely, which has shifted the responsibility more to our first responders in the field. There is supposed to be a much larger study released in the next few days, but right now it is very hard to tell the true impact of the virus on behavioral health.
