Meanwhile, Over in 'The Land of the Free'...

 You may not own a small piece of plastic. [More]

My doesn't this fit a couple of convenient narratives to a "T": White extremists are the greatest threat who must be proactively disarmed, and semi-autos are machineguns that can be banned, including by executive order!

If the feds know who bought the hangers, I guess the "privacy policy" needs an "unless"...

A Matter of Reaction Time

Thu, 11/05/2020 - 10:09

Philadelphia cops release footage of the moment knife-wielding Walter Wallace Jr. rushed at two cops during 'mental health episode' before being shot dead - sparking riots [More]

Let's review the bidding:

Survival tip: If an officer orders you to put down a knife and you want to live, either be closer than 21 feet or listen to the man. You can't get a "social justice" law firm to sue over real or perceived rights violations during a police encounter if you're not around to pursue them.

True, you can't expect a person having a psychotic episode to behave rationally, which may explain why that appeal won't work on those looking for any excuse to loot and destroy under mob protection, but it might be helpful to find an approachable "community leader," put him through a Tueller simulation and have him spread the word.

Crazy Like a Fox

Thu, 11/05/2020 - 09:48
Furious Donald Trump called Rupert Murdoch to scream at him after Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden - but the media mogul refused to back down​ [MoreThe reason this is being widely shared, aside from another chance to diss a president they hate, is the DSM finds it advantageous to label Fox news as "conservative," meaning any news source to the "right" of them can be disparaged as "extremist. What's deliberately left unsaid in contemporary "reports" is that Murdoch is a "Never Trumper" who actually preferred Hillary Clinton (and his sons are even more "progressive.") Like all useful idiots, once their purpose has been served they become disposable. 
So look for Fox News to push even more to the left so the center and the goalposts are once again moved. You have to wonder how long Tucker Carlson's got with them.

Still Kweisi After All These Years

Kim Klacik blows through nearly $5 million trying to defeat Mfume and gets stomped [More]

"Progressive" Dan Rodricks, who frequents areas not victimized by the deadly policies he cheerleads for, says that like it's a good thing.  At least Democrat-voting residents who do will be hats-off grateful to know Massa Biden recognizes them as black.

Speaking of which, they sure have a curious way of defining  "success."

If this doesn't prove you and I need to be disarmed, nothing will.

Funny-- Moms Demand and Gungrabbygabby still don't have anything to say about this.
Naturally, their website registration is hidden behind a proxy.
Here's what it costs to be a member.
Guidestar lists gross receipts and assets at $0, but they didn't get an IRS ruling on their 501(c)(4) until 2019, so there's no Form 990 to look at yet.  What we do find is an address in Wichita belonging to an office plaza that rents both meatspace and virtual "suites" and that does not list them as a "tenant" in their directory
Here are the rope-selling capitalists.
There's not a lot now, but I have a feeling if we stay tuned for a year or so, a clearer picture of who has seeded this will emerge.

 What We Know Already About Election 2020 [More]

It's what we don't know I'm worried about.

Why the work stoppage?

What about the three disturbing facts?

Will it really turn out to be an "abject disaster" for Dems?

What''s really happening in Michigan with those alleged  200K "overnight" votes? (And why was the tweet deleted?)

Ditto Wisconsin?

Spinning Out of Control

Wed, 11/04/2020 - 11:30

 Throughout the evening last night, Big Tech prevented President Trump’s tweets to be shared and the media all night never allowed VP Biden to ever be behind. Florida and Texas were in the Trump corner very early on but the media would not call these big states for Trump. This prevented President Trump from being seen as the clear leader in the race. The media did however, call Arizona and Virginia for Biden even though in Arizona the Republican leadership says they still have a lot of votes to count. Wisconsin was another story. [More]

It's not so much the waiting as the not knowing who can be trusted to announce trustworthy results.

In re AZ, I don't hold out high hopes if it all depends on Maricopa County, which elected a Soros sheriff last time out.

The Other Side

Wed, 11/04/2020 - 09:16
Yesterday. What a day. 
We arrived to open the polling place at 5:30 a.m. For whatever reasons, and as usually happens, I was operating on around three hours of sleep. To compound matters, my back, which goes out on me on occasion, decided yesterday would be a fine day to seize up painfully several times as a protest against all that leaf raking I've been doing of late. And on top of that, only one other woman who worked the polls with me last time had returned -- most of the poll workers were new, probably because the old crew were high-COVID risk age and decided to sit this one out, so a lot of learning on the job had to happen. 
Voters were lined up when we opened things up to them as required at 6:30. The flow was steady and grew throughout the morning. We were rushing to accommodate everything, particularly with the new COVID procedures requiring sanitizing everything down for each voter on check-in, and in the booths after each use. A lot of people, much more than I've usually seen, came in during the morning, and we all scrambled to make sure everyone was processed through and waits were minimized. 
Throughout it all though, there were no real glitches or problems we were not able to resolve, and no incidents of hostility or even inappropriate conduct worth mentioning. What surprised me was how things slowed down after 5:00 p.m. We were all expecting an after-work rush that never came, and things only slowed down after that. I guess all that absentee and early voting, and the morning rush, meant people were serious about making sure their votes counted. 
In our last hour, waiting to close out at 7:30, I think maybe three voters showed up and the big challenge for me was to keep from dozing off. We closed down with a few challenges, but by following the checklists managed to get out in under an hour. 
I had looked forward all day to getting home and rewarding myself by going out to the porch with a cigar and two fingers of the good stuff, turning on the space heater, and catching another episode of a streamed series I'm watching. Maybe tonight. I barely had the energy to put myself to bed.
Ohio results were mixed. Big picture:  Trump took the day. Closer to home, a wretched gun-grabber was re-elected to the state assembly -- in fairness, his opponent really didn't do much to put fire in any bellies other than having an "R" after her name.
And now we wait for national results to see if continued volunteering to work the system will be something I still care to do, or if its integrity no longer matters because the outcome will be a foregone conclusion.

 ‘They can’t come out and SAY IT.’ [More]

Yeah, but Biden's got Lady Gaga.

I hope and pray these people predicting a Trump win to once more confound the "experts" is right. I'd love to be able to throw that in the face of the next smartass anti who disparages hopes and prayers.
