Parroting the Talking Points

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:28

The report highlighted several cases, including fatal shootings related to protests and the F.B.I.’s arrest of 13 men accused of plotting to kidnap the governor of Michigan, a Democrat.  [More]

What, you mean the low-hanging fruit loops that included a BLM supporter and two anti-Trump anarchists?

The Thing That Would Not Die

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:24

 Fast And Furious Has Never Died [More]

I have two big problems with this:

  1. Terminology matters. Operation Fast and Furious was the name of a specific program run out of Phoenix. I know there were similar operations conducted under Project Gunrunner and have written about several of them myself over the years, but they were not "Fast and Furious." 
  2. This perpetuates misunderstandings about Wide Receiver I have been trying for years to dispel but nonetheless keep being raised.
As I noted earlier: All I can "vouch" for on Fast and Furious is what Mike and I reported. I'm aware there are other "theories," including about cartel deals and those relying on the testimony of criminals trying to mitigate their punishments -- I'm not discounting any of the reports, but merely saying anything I haven't worked on is outside the scope of what I have found and been told by vetted sources that have been proven credible to me.

If Wishes Were Fishes

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:10

 Luckily, states do have recourse. State legislatures can prohibit local entities from participating in direct federal-grant programs that usurp their traditional prerogative. Governors can refuse to participate in programs that similarly transfer decision-making authority. Of course, both require the relevant actor to prize the long-term health of our federalist republican government over the short-term infusion of lucre. [More]

In other words, it'll be a done deal.

Last Chance to See Reason

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:08

 You may be in the glow of martyrdom. You may think you are heroically going against the grain like Martin Luther nailing his ninety-five theses to the church door at Wittenberg. In fact, you are completely the opposite. The very villains you think you are opposing are using your intellectual arrogance to seduce you. You are opposing everything you value. The main reason you can’t see this, is that you are working from an old and obsolete model. [More]

He gives them more credit for merely being misguided virtue signalers than I do. If they were persuadable by reason, they wouldn't need to be persuaded.

They are either stupid, or evil, or both. They are giving aid and comfort to the destroyers and they need to be loudly condemned for it.

Gone Fishing

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:05

Jeez, guy, do they have to come right out and tell you they're trying to incriminate you if they can? Unless you have more expertise than this guy, what are you doing inviting vampires to cross your threshold
And why not ID your persecutors? The blowback to you will certainly be personal and with no regard to protecting your identity, and sometimes, shining light and banging pots are your best defenses for making them back off.

'Sounds Like a Dream Come True for the Democrats'

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 11:02

 “Nationally, there is this impression that Puerto Rico is Democrat, and that those two additional seats would allow the Democrats to control the Senate,” he said. “This has created a window of opportunity for us in the Democratic Party.” [More]

GRNC lawsuit against Wake County sheriff continues [More]
Evidently, the ace "Authorized Journalists" at CBS 17 Raleigh don't know the difference between a TRO and a lawsuit...
Also, here are GRNC's voting recommendations.

'Not In My Name'

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 10:43

 In my "Low-Hanging Fruit" article, I mentioned how many who identify as Three Percenters don't understand the first thing about the principles of the concept or of its founder.

Here's what Mike Vanderboegh had to say about that.

Stuck with the Weasel Whisperer

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 10:33

Tarheel State Second Amendment Supporters Should Trust Thom Tillis With 2nd Term [More]

Not a word about talking out of both sides of his mouth on  "Gun Confiscation SWATing"?

What does Tillis think all those "good" votes he's cast will be worth once he "legalizes" all those "pathway to citizenship" Democrats? I notice that's not even mentioned -- which, considering the source, isn't surprising.

And so by withholding information, what some of us like to call "lies of omission," gun owners are deliberately deprived of information vital to the protection of our rights by the very people we turn to for complete and cogent analyses.

So what do I want? The anti-gun Democrat adulterer to win, particularly with the Senate in jeopardy?

What I want is for national and state gun groups and for "gunbloggers" and "gunwriters" to get their heads out of their be-hinds and honestly address the greatest political threat we face. Had they done that, this fraud might have been primaried by someone who really has proven trustworthy and we wouldn't be stuck with him now.

We're the Only Ones Concerned Enough

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 10:26
The Ohio State Highway Patrol, which handles security for the governor and his residences, was notified of the report by local law enforcement. The Patrol will not say if it launched an investigation or if any probe is ongoing, citing security concerns.[More]Forgive me for suspecting the initiator of the suggestion was one of theirs attempting to identify and provoke some low-hanging fruit in order to gin up some narrative-amplifying headlines. It's not like that's not SOP.
Kudos to the entrapment target for not being stupid.

Radio Redux

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 10:17

Here are the archive files for the shows I was on Friday:

I actually got a call mid-day from Mark Walters to come on Armed American Radio but had to beg off due to being "on-call" to work with tech support on my computer issues.

Please Stand By

Mon, 10/26/2020 - 10:08


I mentioned technical difficulties on Friday and that I'd be able to post article and radio appearance announcements but not much more. The problem has not been resolved and I expect tech support to contact me any minute to resume troubleshooting analysis via remote access.

I did get some news tips over the weekend, plus I have some new stuff of my own to post-- I'll try to get as much posted as I can before that happens, but when it does, I have no idea how long I'll be down.

So please-- please: Don't send me more stuff until I give the "All clear"?

Gun Owners Should Welcome Tommy Lee’s Threat to Leave U.S.

Fri, 10/23/2020 - 10:20


So will Tommy Lee come to gather up our guns and melt them into a Hillary Clinton statue before he leaves? Or does he have more blacks to assault and women to kick first? [More]

Actually, he won't do the gathering-- he's got bodyguards.

Tear Down That Wall

Fri, 10/23/2020 - 09:49


I'll be joining in on two radio shows today:

  • The Michael Dukes Show: They'll' be calling me this morning at 10:25 Eastern and streaming outside of Alaska on Facebook Live.
  • Lock N Load: I'll be talking with Bill Frady this afternoon at 5:30  Eastern on Genesis Communications Network (Channel 3).

Technical Difficulties

Thu, 10/22/2020 - 19:14


PC crapped out on me this afternoon -- it's relatively new and still under warranty, so I had tech support doing remote surgery for the past few hours. They don't have it licked yet and will need to resume tomorrow.

Bottom line, sorry, I will not be able to get to literally dozens of news tips still in my inbox and probably won't even be able to get to them tomorrow -- anything more than a new article announcement and promos for two radio shows I'm going to be on probably won't happen.

So please:

  1. Understand if I can't consider your contribution.
  2. Don't send any more 'til Monday.

Mask Required

Thu, 10/22/2020 - 18:59

 I remember this from when I was little -- I had this exact mask:

Yea, it was stupid, but it kept me out of Mom's hair for a bit while I spent time cutting it out and then playing with it until I quickly got bored.
So, what are you going to be this Halloween?

Get one for yourself while supplies last!

Time for Your Tonguebath, Mr. Chief Justice

Thu, 10/22/2020 - 14:36

 To stand in the center, the Chief must stand apart. [More]

Who says he's supposed to, on either count?

And is Dolly jealous, having to share him with a "Tax Prof"?
