VODKAPUNDIT PRESENTS YOUR DAILY INSANITY WRAP: ‘Fiery But Peaceful’ Is a Thing Now.


Much like the flight of the Enola Gay......lovely flight, clear weather, mild winds aloft......you know.....mostly peaceful!

scenes

I wouldn't sweat the RCross post. It's such weak tea that I can't even get the energy to be slightly irritated, it's like most of Paul's slide posts.

I did like this one from http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com/

"THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 2020
Exporting Rioters
This is about the only place you'll hear this:
FYI witnesses at the scene report that at least 6 huge luxury motorcoaches arrived, a Chicago limo company. As the buses were letting people out witnesses recognized Miracle Boyd and others from the Chicago protests/riots. This was reported on social media.

Then the owner of this limo company claimed he was not transporting protesters but transporting "troops like we do every day" however the Wisconsin National Guard responded that they use their own transportation. The Guard does not hire limos or buses from Chicago.

Then the limo company owner said oops! Meant to say he transported military personnel from Great Lakes. But wouldn't you know it? A call to Great Lakes naval training center revealed that they had never heard of this Chicago limo company. So who was he transporting to Kenosha and who paid for those 6 motorcoaches? And why was he lying about it?
Forward this one around."

Worth keeping an eye on.

Scott O

Looking at the lefty press on the Kenosha events it's clear that this country is totally splitting apart. The left is now openly lying about the latest police shooting in their efforts to fan the violence.
The narrative they're pushing is that an un-armed black man tried to break up a fight and when he tried to get in his vehicle a cop shot him in the back 7 times right in front of his children.
I really like the constant stress on the 'right in front of his children' part. And as the governor said "...in broad daylight..."
I'm surprised they don't stress that it was "on a public street"!
No wonder they're going after Tucker. His big 'crime' is pointing out that sane people knew what was going to happen and the left wouldn't listen.

A funny sort of synchronicity, I was thinking about this very thing.

https://twitter.com/CityBureaucrat/status/1298547028918710273

"Occupy Mainstreet's radical anarchist agenda:

-Consolidate police power with the Federal Government

-Destroy local businesses to consolidate the consumer economy under a cartel of multinationals

-Remove impediments to corporate global labor arbitrage

-Menace downscale whites"

I was considering how this whole situation plays perfectly into the hands of megacorps.

. People use the internet to perform any consumer purchases as COVID + AntifaBLM burnings shut down retail.
. Open Borders activism continues (driving down labor rates).
. Increasing internet use for all activities leads to more surveillance.
. Push to remote work leads to surveillance of workers plus the ability to more easily automate their jobs (hint: jobs done completely on a computer keyboard and mouse are the low hanging fruit for automation, regardless of how much 'knowledge work' you think you are doing).

I did like an idea from Brendan O'Neill here (worth watching) of this being a revolution of the bourgeois. Minorities are simply a tool at hand.

First, disarm the police from using rubber bullets and other non-lethal crowd (out of) control during a riot of looters and other peaceful protestors committing carnage and mass destruction. A weapomized crowd of mass destruction, if you will. But, don't hurt the children of Marx and anarcists.

Then have liberal TDS DAs slap their little wrists with a wet noodle and free immediately those arrested for overt criminal acts. Show the children by example the adults have left the building and there are no consequencies for their unlawful actions. Next we now have the drum circle pounding out, "Kill the Beast, Kill the Beast!

Dr. Rebane @ 11:36 am

“with these bolshevik thugs ANY excuse will do to disrupt the order of an existing regime to be overthrown.”

I may have been born at night, but not last night. I have come around to the bigger picture that these riots have nothing to do with race or BLM, We are witnessing the ole classic Class Warfare. Bernie Sanders’ stuff, along with AOC and the New Democrat Party. Pure Lenin playbook. Race is just a convenient tool in the Marxist toolbox. Nothing new under the sun.

They lust for power with an insatiable thirst that can never be satisfied. Wrap it all up under social justice. Did notice the peaceful protestors in Seattle wandered into residential neighborhoods telling people to get out of their homes because those abodes belong to the crowd. Private property really gets their goat, as did with Karl Marx, Stalin, Lenin, and Chairman Mao...along with all the other minor dictators in history.

Nothing organized, just an organic protest right? -

KENOSHA, Wis. - Three vehicles, a black school bus, bread truck and tan minivan were stopped by Kenosha police Wednesday evening, Aug. 26 after police said officers suspected the occupants "were preparing for criminal activity related to the civil unrest." This, on the fourth night of protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, and a night after two people were fatally shot during demonstrations.


Police said this began with a citizen tip that the vehicles planned to meet in a remote lot near State Highway 50 and Green Bay Road
|
Officers began surveilling the vehicles after locating them, assisted by U.S. Marshals -- and confirmed the out-of-state plates.

Police said officers followed them to a gas station near Washington Road and 30th Avenue, where officers observed the occupants of the bus and bread truck exit and attempt to fill multiple fuel cans.

At this point, "suspecting that the occupants of these vehicles were preparing for criminal activity related to the civil unrest," officers attempted to make contact and investigate.

Police noted, "the officers exited their vehicles, identified themselves, were wearing appropriate identification and then detained the occupants of the bus and bread truck."

The driver of the minivan tried to pull away, but the vehicle was stopped and police forced entry -- arresting the occupants.

According to police, the vehicles contained various items that included helmets, gas masks, protective vests, illegal fireworks and suspected controlled substances.

'What Is the Violence in American Cities All About?'
Victor Davis Hanson · Aug. 27, 2020

"Globalization eroded the middle class. Inner-city America is far too violent — and far too neglected.

But these are not the apparent concerns of those who carry off shoes and phones in U-Hauls, kick the unconscious on the pavement, destroy art and sculpture, or seek to torch public buildings with public servants inside.

The point of the mob is to wipe out what it cannot create.

It topples what it can neither match nor even comprehend.

It would erode the very system that ensures it singular freedom, leisure and historic affluence.

The brand of the anarchist is not logic but envy-driven power: to take it, to keep it, and to use it against purported enemies — which would otherwise be impossible in times of calm or through the ballot box"

Daily Quotes

For the record: “Rachel Maddow of MSNBC broke away from South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s speech because Maddow felt it was ‘very wrong’ to say that cities have been hit hard by crime and looting. She brought on Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to dispute the claim. Earlier this week, Seattle rioters tried to seal police officers inside a building using quick-dry cement, in order to kill them.” —Mollie Hemingway

Political futures: “Republicans are pitching optimism, opportunity and the limitless possibilities of the individual in America, regardless of background, religion, race, ethnicity or the obstacles that have existed and continue to exist. Democrats are pitching anger, hatred, victimhood, resentment, class and racial warfare, and self-loathing. If there is any hope, it lies solely in the hands of an ever-larger government — led, it must be noted, by the same people who have presided over the devastation and catastrophic failures noted above.” —Laura Hollis

Observations: “The DC crowd thinks when they call Donald Trump a nationalist, they’re insulting him. As if the American president isn’t supposed to base foreign policy on America’s national interests!” —former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grennell

Touché: “Joe Biden had the audacity to say if you don’t vote for him, ‘You ain’t black.’ Well to that, I say, if you do vote for Biden, you don’t know history.” —civil rights activist Clarence Henderson

The political winds are shifting: “Burning down communities is not protest — it’s needless violence. Violence that endangers lives, violence that guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community. That’s wrong.” —Joe Biden

D'oh! “The simple reality is that we are seeing more and more chaos and violence under the Trump presidency, and there’s no reason to expect that it would get any different or any better if he were reelected.” —Pete Buttigieg, giving away the Democrats’ game plan if they lose

Non compos mentis: “Madison Cawthorn made it a point to stand [for the national anthem], suggesting that all Americans to [sic] should stand during the pledge of allegiance & national anthem. It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl — including black athletes who are currently sitting out games — protesting police brutality.” —"PBS NewsHour" correspondent Yamiche Alcindor (“How on earth could you possibly turn the rather moving act of a FREAKIN’ PARAPLEGIC rising for the national anthem into some weird BLM trip?” —National Review contributor Jeff Blehar)

And last… “The point of the mob is to wipe out what it cannot create. It topples what it can neither match nor even comprehend. It would erode the very system that ensures it singular freedom, leisure and historic affluence. The brand of the anarchist is not logic but envy-driven power: to take it, to keep it, and to use it against purported enemies — which would otherwise be impossible in times of calm or through the ballot box.” —Victor Davis Hanson

Biden claimed that there were no race riots during the Obama-Biden administration and the National Guard was never called. He seemed to have forgotten that the Black Lives Matter movement started in 2014, and rioted in Ferguson, Missouri; or that the National Guard were called in to quell race riots in Baltimore, Maryland after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody in 2015; or that five police were murdered in Dallas, Texas, during a Black Lives Matter march in 2016.

PaulE 917pm - I thought you already learned from me and others here that formally the Rose Garden and South Lawn are not considered a part of the WH in which partisan activities are not supposed to take place.

Paul 9:28 - And we've never had a situation like we're facing now with CV19. Look Paul - politicians have used public spaces and buildings for decades for speeches and political activities. Where do the newly elected presidents stand while delivering a self-serving political speech? Where do presidents go to deliver the state of the union speech? It's not an official act. There's no requirement in the Constitution or in law for that to happen the way it does.
The bald fact of the matter is that if the Dems did it, you wouldn't have said a word.

James Howard Kunstler speaks.

"The Democratic Party ought to worry that the voters are onto their game, because it looks like they’ve completely blown it only a week after anointing the most decrepit old pol in their donkey stable to run for president. Speaking of whom, Joe Biden finally crawled out from under a rock yesterday to issue a few timid peeps about the rioting, looting, and arson that went on in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for three nights running — and for three months in other cities around the country — during which he said nothing to halt the trashing of Kenosha’s downtown.

The different story that events themselves are telling voters is that young Americans act like savages when given the green light by politicians who refuse to enforce the laws against public violence, theft, and the destruction of property, and who justify all that with a fabricated narrative about systemic racism. Since Memorial Day, the Democratic Party has used the Black Lives Matter and Antifa orgs as shock troops in a stupid campaign aimed at abolishing the police. Well, now America can see exactly what happens when the police get functionally disabled by mayors and governors who order them to not do their primary job: maintaining basic civic order. The voters have seen it in Kenosha, Chicago, New York, Denver, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon."

I bet there will come a point when Senator Rand Paul just wastes his hands of the Democrat Party completely and all those Biden-Bernie voters and supporters.

First he was shot at by a crazy Bernie Bro at a ball field. Then, his Lefty neighbor busted up his ribs. In between, they scared the shit out of his wife and children by going to Paul’s home in mob style yelling and threatening pounding on the door and windows when the senator wasn’t home. And now they try to attack him on the streets.

@RandPaul
Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to

Bill Tozer

An inevitable political misfire: “So far, if I’m not mistaken, impeachment has been mentioned more at the RNC than at the DNC. A sign that the politics of impeachment did not go as the Democrats planned.” —Matthew Continetti

Upright: “As [Jacob Blake’s] mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name. You shouldn’t do it. People shouldn’t do it anyway, but to use my child or any other mother or father’s child, our tragedy to react in that manner is just not acceptable.” —Julia Jackson

For the record: “Joe Biden has turned his candidacy over to the far-left, anti-law enforcement radicals. And as a senator, Kamala Harris pushed to further restrict police, cut their training, and make our American communities and streets even more dangerous than they are. … The differences between Trump-Pence and Biden-Harris are crystal clear. Your choices are the most pro-law enforcement president we’ve ever had or the most radical anti-police ticket in history.” —National Association of Police Organizations president Michael McHale

And now a word from Handsy Joe: “I’m a tactile politician. I really miss being able to, you know, grab hands, shake hands — you can’t do that now. But I can, in fact, appear beyond virtually, in person, in many of these places. That’s what you’re going to be seeing after Labor Day.” —Joe Biden, who can’t keep his hands to himself

Alpha jackass: “[Trump] views this as a political benefit to him. He’s rooting for more violence, not less, and is clear about that.” —Joe Biden

Well that’s one way to put it: “I believe [the rioting] will ultimately burn itself out.” —Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler

And last… “For all those upset at the lack of social distancing and mask-wearing at the White House, just pretend for a second they’re trying to burn down a neighborhood furniture store in the name of racial justice. Then you’ll feel okay about it.” —Ben Shapiro

re: the 21 lies and/or misrepresentations: do your own homework.. there are plenty of fact checkers available on the internet. you might learn something. but then again, truth doesn't matter to you folks so what's the point. You will just call it 'fake news' like everything else and move on.. so there is really no point in providing a link. Your 'provide a link' mantra is just another dodge to avoid confronting reality, much like the 'fake news' and "TDS" dodges..

Larry 'n George.

There's plenty of Trump 'lie' lists out there. Practically all trivial, or out of context, or a shade of truth. The main point is to get a big list, not a good one. He's in the public eye a lot and every word is eagerly analyzed, so whether he's worse than your average politician is tough to tell.

The word 'lie' has been expanded in any case, rather in the way that 'fascist' now applies to anyone somewhat to the left of Bill Clinton and going rightwards. 'Nationalist' now means fascist as borders are another form of original sin. Work goes on to redefine 'racist' (and has been changed in at least one dictionary) to include a much broader swathe of behavior. In the medium run, 'anti-racist' will declare a narrow definition and 'racist' is everyone else. At some point, algebra will consist of 'lies' as math class is a white construct.

Roberto, no doubt, thinks of he/she him/her as immune from all of this, being on the right side of history and all. Good luck with that. Even the folks who run the struggle sessions eventually end up on the central chair.

Newspeak is a real thing and continues to expand it's hold. The 'friendly' face of the Left are simply enablers to a thing a lot more evil and grasping.

—————
Oh my, Stevie won’t like this one bit. Neither will our local News Director walking about shoveling a microphone in their face and peppering them with questions. “Your honor, he’s leading the witness!”

‘A Most Consequential Presidency’

“Trump has also changed the character and composition of the GOP, making it more of a working- and middle-class party. Where George H.W. Bush sought to build a “New World Order” with America as global hegemon and George W. Bush preached a global crusade for democracy “to end tyranny in our world,” Trump is all-in on “America first.” Bush transnationalism belongs to yesterday.“....

Under Trump, the GOP ceased to be a party of small government whose yardstick of success was how close it came to a balanced budget.

“Trump signed on this spring to $3 trillion in deficit spending to rescue the economy from a depression into which the government had shoved it to control the spread of the coronavirus. He is prepared to spend a trillion dollars more.

By opening new lands and seas to exploration, building pipelines, permitting fracking and slashing regulations, Trump has brought the U.S. to an energy independence which other presidents only promised.

The Trump GOP has abandoned an ideological commitment to free trade that dates back to the Kennedy administration and reembraced the economic nationalism of the 19th-century Republicans who built the world’s greatest industrial and manufacturing power.

Globalism has been relegated to the ash heap of history as our populist president trashed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accords, and began to impose tariffs on countries that have looted America’s manufacturing base.

While Trump has been prevented by the Russophobia of our Beltway elites from seeking a detente with Vladimir Putin, he has managed to avoid a military collision.

Trump has also ended the decades-long freeriding of NATO allies on the U.S. defense budget, convincing many of them to contribute more.
*[Thats the issue that got Punchy upset that mean ole Trump was extorting money from our NATO allies for defense money they cannot afford. Poor poor counties like the Krauts. Steve wasn’t happy either, Trump talking that way to our allies like a dictator, not as an equal among equals.]

He has made the Republican Party the pro-Israel Party, recognizing Israel’s annexation of the occupied Golan Heights and East Jerusalem by moving the U.S. embassy there. He effected the recognition of Israel by the UAE in return for Bibi Netanyahu’s postponement of the annexation of the 30% of the West Bank envisioned in Trump’s own “Deal of the Century.”

While Trump has not extracted this country from the forever wars of the Middle East — Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria — he routed ISIS and kept us out of Libya’s civil war.

Unlike his predecessors, Trump has tabled the issue of immigration, especially mass illegal migration across the Southern border, and made progress on the border wall he made a feature of his 2016 campaign.

A discredited NAFTA has been replaced by a new trade deal, and a leftist government in Mexico City is helping prevent migrants from entering southern Mexico on their way to the United States.

Trump has done as much as Reagan to deregulate the U.S. economy and reduce taxes on workers, producers, and investors. Before COVID-19 hit in force in March, stock markets were hitting all-time highs and unemployment rates all-time lows.

He has nominated and elevated two Supreme Court justices and hundreds of federal judges.

The horizon, however, does not appear to be without perils.

Bellicosity toward Beijing is being reciprocated, and China appears ready for confrontation to validate its claims in the South and East China seas and Taiwan Strait.

What Beijing is doing to America — espionage, intellectual property theft, forced technology transfers, running up $600 billion trade surpluses at our expense — is Trump’s concern, not what Beijing is doing to restrict democracy in Hong Kong.

While his outreach to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un failed to persuade Kim to surrender his nuclear arsenal in return for recognition, trade and aid, even some of Trump’s enemies applauded his effort.”

More Pat if you are into it: Sooner or later Biden has to make a stand. Come out, come out wherever you are!

‘Is Biden Ceding the Law-and-Order Issue?’

“Eventually, the country is going to go with law and order, for, no matter how the liberals’ recoil from the phrase and its associations with Barry Goldwater and Richard Nixon, without law and order there is no justice and there is no peace. What Nixon said in ’68 remains true: “The first civil right of every American is to be free from domestic violence.”
Is Joe Biden forfeiting the law-and-order issue to Donald Trump?

So it would seem.”.....

“The Republicans have chosen. They stand with the cops.

And if and when Biden comes out of the basement again, he is going to have to take a stand. Declaring evenhanded neutrality won’t cut it.“

But then I have to think of this (from The Last Plantagenets, Costain)...

"It seems possible that he had realized the sorry truth that leaders of popular causes have to face sooner or later; that an issue, based on idealistic reasoning, cannot hold men together for any great length of time. Few are capable of holding to a faith without any concern for personal satisfaction or gain. A certain proportion of every mass recruited to demand a change or to further a cause will seize the opportunity offered for looting and thievery. Still more will let their emotions involve them in uncontrollable excesses, in the destruction of property and the massacre of those who stand in their way. It was too much to expect that all of these many thousands of angry peasants could be held for long on a tight rein or under any form of discipline."

Billt: "Right of Bill Clinton?"

Actually I said right of left of Bill Clinton, but it's a hard thing to express.

Everyone knows darned well that if you, though the magic of technology, stuck Trump's head on a speech by Obama or Clinton on something like immigration, the Blue Mob would shriek about Nazis and whatnot.

The Plague gave the crazy people their big chance at hegemony. Dunno if it will work. The main thing is to root the craziness out of government, schools, and HR departments. Even if Biden's troops quit burning cities, the genuine threat to liberty is still comfy in it's den.

Biden election numbers virtually the same since June-He leads Trump by 7. No convention bump.

Bill Tozer

“No bump from the convention for Trump after his boring epic rant.”

You forgot to say, “dark” boring epic rant. But what Punchy says may be true. However, let’s look at the same stuff from another angle. Like having two artists paint the same oak tree. Different perspective:

“This “bounce” seems to be a function of respondents viewing Biden less favorably than before, rather than viewing Trump more favorably. Morning Consult found that Biden’s favorability numbers have weakened while the president’s have remained steady.” Say what? Hold yer horses, there is more!

EARLY POLLING FINDS TRUMP GETTING A CONVENTION BOUNCE

“The Morning Consult survey is just one poll. We shouldn’t read too much into it.

However, Allahpundit calls attention to a YouGov poll (for Yahoo News) that also suggests a GOP bounce. It too finds that the Biden lead is down to 6 points — 47 to 41. At the end of July, YouGov had Biden up by 9 points.

YouGov states:

The convention appears to have boosted perceptions of Trump’s “strength” and convinced a small number of former Biden supporters to move toward the president. But the unrest in Kenosha, Wis., following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a major talking point at the RNC, has not had a clear impact on voters’ choices — at least not yet.

(Emphasis added)

A 3 to 4 point convention bounce wouldn’t be bad by contemporary standards, especially given that the GOP Convention wasn’t a ratings smash.

If the two polls cited above accurately reflect the current state of public opinion, the Trump campaign still has plenty of work to do. However, it also has a message that seems to move voters.“

This reflects the important numbers. 270TOWIN averages all the State polls and comes out with this map showing Biden ahead 278-169 with 91 tossups. For Trump to eak out a win he has to win all the tossups and flip a state now blue. Trump has to win in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina , Ohio, and parts of Maine and Nebraska plus flip a blue state that has 10 or more delegates.. Check it out. The map is interactive so you can try your own formula.

Some data crumbs for the pony tail of ignorance -

The Hill reported:

Twenty-four percent of registered black voters in the Aug. 22-25 survey, which included the first two days of the convention, said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 76 percent said they disapprove.

That is up 9 points from the previous survey conducted Aug. 8-11, where the President received 15 percent support among this group.

The survey found support among Hispanic voters also grew by 2 percentage points, from 30 percent in the last poll to 32 percent in this most recent survey.

Cahaly wrote on Twitter that 63.8 percent of undecided voters in the company’s recent poll want Big Ten football this fall.

He said Donald Trump’s support of holding a football season makes those undecided voters more likely to support him by 4-to-1.

Breitbart News previously reported Whitmer has been the “lone governor” holding up the season.

“I was also told that one roadblock to the new plan is the fact that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been vehemently opposed to football being played – at the high school and college level – in the state this fall,” Ohio State insider Jeff Snook said

The Great Equalizer in this dialogue buts Punchy in the same bind as us purveyors of the truth and defenders of life, liberty, and the pursuit of doing your own thang. There just ain’t enough recent and actuate State polls out there, and they don’t out enough. That is if one was a polling junkie. That’s ok, but it’s the addiction to outrage and all the Drama Queen stuff that I find rather juvenile.

Let me dig up that link I saw a few days ago, this week. The guy really feels his and Punchy’s pain. The State Polls are just too damned slow! Feed me Seymour, feed me all night long.

Can’t find it. But the writer was jonesing waiting for new State Polls and pointed out that some state polls are a moth old or from early August, some from July, and just one state two weeks ago and the one new poll was 3 days.

So, Punch, looks like what we have here is a Mexican Standoff. We both don’t have what we need to start counting the electoral college path. Knock yourself out and break a leg. Didn’t recall you so gun hoed over state polling in 2016. It wasn’t your bag then, I reckon. Oh, sure, you paid it some lip service......

Nothing like a big honking humongous surprise, eh? Got caught with your pants down around your old man stockings with your ass flapping in the wind last time. Ouch. Live and learn. You won’t be fooled again. It’s the Electoral College you idiots! Go Paul, go. Bring home another participation trophy to go with your Ann Coulter doll. Did you hear her latest?

Riviere said Clinton’s comments were very revealing about her approach to politics.
