Looks like the dem running to be the next AZ gov has a discrimination verdict problem that should cause the woken to shun her -


Democratic gubernatorial frontrunner Katie Hobbs is trying to climb her way out of a hole that is beginning to look like a political grave.

On Thursday, Hobbs finally spoke about the firing of Talonya Adams, a Black woman who won her federal discrimination lawsuit last week after being fired from her job as a House Democratic analyst while Hobbs was House minority leader.

The hole only got deeper.

Hobbs did, at least, acknowledge that she played a role in Adams’ 2015 firing. That is certainly better than last week’s statement from her campaign, blaming it all on Republicans.

But Hobbs also insisted on Thursday there were good reasons to fire Adams that had nothing to do with race or gender. Yet two years ago, she publicly apologized to Adams and lamented that she hadn’t been a “stronger ally”.

Hobbs cites 'other factors' but won't elaborate
Now she says there was a pattern of issues with Adams’ performance.

“I can say with certainty on my part, my decision in the termination was not based on race or gender,” she told Arizona Mirror’s Jeremy Duda. “There were other factors.”

She just won’t tell us what those factors are, reasoning that she could be sued since they apparently didn’t come up at trial. Curiously, she also told Duda that she doesn’t want the state to appeal the jury’s verdict.

Make that, the second jury’s verdict.

Glancing at Drudge Report for the first time in a year or so, I did like this article on Life In Blue Mob America:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10226225/WATCH-Portland-police-cornered-garage-protesters-riots-Kyle-Rittenhouse-verdict.html

But I was mostly struck by the smash 'n grab looteries going on as the usual suspects are off to exercising their free speech rights and getting theirs from The Man. (Nordstrom in Walnut Creek, Louis Vuitton in SF fer two). It got me to thinking. Just how will the normalization of street crime as essentially legal change the layout of luxury good stores, kind of an economic geography problem.

. Increase number and quality of surveillance devices. Probably not useful as the looters are in cahoots with Blue Mob DA offices.
. Much higher degree of passive defense. Change store construction materials and layout to make it more difficult to steal, a kind of retail version of so-called 'hostile architecture'.
. Yet more move to internet sales, too bad for city centers.
. (My favorite) Push for made-to-order luxury goods. I just can't see a bunch of Cadillac SUVs and BMWs roaring up to the tailor or leathergoods shops to steal industrial sewing machines and bolts of cloth. Maybe we could reintroduce excellence in handwork and move away from Chinese (or Italian filled with Chinese workers) sweatshops.

Me too. It’s not the post verdict violence that grabs me as much as the smack and grab (pun intended’ that leaves me more in shock. I was shocked when the smash and grabs teenage hordes descended on a mall in Chicago a few years ago. 3-4 years ago, maybe. Pre-pandemic period.

I feeling I got reading about 80 robbers jumping out of 25 cars and blocking the street, racing in, and literally the place along with the cleaning out Walnut Creek ....and add the Louie Vuitton store demoralized me. WTF has happened to the Q of L? Respect for other people’s stuff? Lord of the Flies. Societal Breakdown...which is just another example to add to the long record at RRs. Our theme, if you will,

‘Thieves 'emptied out' SF's Union Square Louis Vuitton store, police say’
https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/San-Francisco-Union-Square-Louis-Vuitton-robbery-16637562.php

Have noticed some issues before the pandemic started have re-e emerged. Issues that were bubbling up to the surface with the temperature rising that took a break during the worse epidemic in 100 years. They’re backkkkkk.

The smash and grab is back. My temperature rose reading about the concerns of Latino parents in some densely populated Hispanic majority South LA area school districts quite upset with their school boards pushing the trans agenda on their children in school w/ cries about blow jobs and corn holing and indecency being rammed down their throats. Biggest insult from the parents’ POV is how the board dismissed them out of hand.

When the board would have public comments, a woke to the max select activist from other district’s board was the speaker at the cram-packed auditorium meeting who spent the time blabbing away all the minutes save a few. Teachers Union’s board members disguised as parents where called on first in the remaining few minutes of public comment to run out the clock.

The tale above was just one of stories that had my temperature rising at the time. A school district in eastern San Diego County, a place in the Central Valley and the tactics of packing the audience with teacher union board members and the big “we know what is best for your kids education” middle finger. Now Loudoun County, VA is the current flash point.....at least the latest poster boy that speaks for millions.

The greatest thing about the pre-lockdown hoards of normally non-activist parents descending at the local school board meetings was a protest sign that caught my attention and got me quite interested in the topic: “Democrats Do Not Care About Immigrants” it read, held up by a Hispanic woman with baby on hip. One of several. :)

‘Amid bias rebuke, FBI raids homes of GOP election clerk, conservative activists in Colorado’
FBI raids on Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters and Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert's former campaign manager follow those earlier this month on conservative journalists associated with Project Veritas.

“Even as the Department of Justice Inspector General released a report this week criticizing the politicization of the department, the FBI on Tuesday raided the homes of a Republican election official and several of her associates in Mesa County, Colo., in connection with a dispute about efforts to preserve 2020 election files.

In collaboration with state and county law enforcement, the FBI raided the homes of Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters, Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert's former campaign manager Sherronna Bishop, and two others.

The FBI operations targeting skeptics of the 2020 election results follow the bureau's raids earlier this month on the homes of conservative guerrilla journalist James O'Keefe and several of his associates with Project Veritas.

Numerous elected officials, reporters, and the American Civil Liberties Union have voiced their concerns about potential infringement of press freedom by the FBI and Justice Department in the O'Keefe raid. These fears were exacerbated when information collected in the raid was published in the New York Times, which has been defending itself against a lawsuit filed by Project Veritas.

The DOJ's inspector general released a report this week rebuking the department for straying from its own policies on avoiding the appearance of political bias.“

How much are the parents for the brain washing -

When a Wisconsin jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse of murder charges last week, that development hampered the progress of science, a Virginia university's chemistry department suggested in a series of online posts that at least one critic is deriding as inappropriate "politicized rhetoric."

The communications on James Madison University's official Instagram account also briefly included a so-called "student takeover" video in which a JMU student lamented the "murdering" of "two beautiful Black lives" – even though the jury agreed that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense and the two men he fatally shot were both White.

PEAK WOKE: NO TRIGGERS ALLOWED
One of the dumbest aspects of today’s academia is the “trigger warning,” where students are alerted to the possibility that what they are about to read may be traumatic. Traumatic, I take it, to people who are pathologically unable to cope, which evidently is the standard in today’s universities. But now England’s Warwick University has gone one better. It has stopped using the phrase “trigger warning” because triggers are…triggering:

A university has scrapped the term ‘trigger warning’ because it fears its use alone could upset snowflake students.

“Warwick University has deemed the phrase too ‘provocative’ for those on its literature and drama courses and is instead now using the term ‘content notes’.
***
in reply to a Freedom of Information request, it has revealed: ‘”Trigger warnings” are now referred to as “content notes” due to the word “trigger” being itself a provocative word.’

Because, where do you find triggers? In guns.

We can only hope that it is university administrators, and not the youth of today’s Western world, who are hopelessly incompetent to deal with reality.

‘Biden Taps Strategic Oil Reserve 11 Months After Suspension Of Oil And Gas Leases’

————————-
“Keep the trains running on time and fix the potholes,” is what is on people’s minds where the rubber meets the road down on the ground closer to the stink.
Virginia is a good example. One year the Governor of Virginia hiked the DMV fees for registering one’s vehicles. It became the central election issue and the governor was defeated for re-election. The media was dumbfounded per SOP.
Remember when some banks charging ATM fees? Oh, the national outrage erupted. A 50 cent of two dollar charge got ‘the people’s’ hackles going big time. Dovetailed with OWS in New York City.

In Washington State they tried to raise DMV fees, but because of that state’s laws, it went to a referendum vote. Defeated, but not deterred, the government of the state found a work around. When someone buys a used car or it is gifted to them or an elderly neighbor sells you her good running car because she doesn’t drive anymore for say, $50O-$800, the WA DMV now taxes you on the Blue Book value of the vehicle, not the purchase price....or which ever is greater. They are going to squeeze blood out of the yokel turnips if is the last thing they do. If you need to hide something, bury it in a law or addendum to a bureaucrat regulation. Enough of that letting the people decide.

All that to say is it not recommended to underestimate the Biden caused inflation at the pump. Puts folks in a disturbed mood and hurts the poor and those living paycheck to paycheck the most, including the soccer moms and the Sweet Baby Gang.

After her home state of New Jersey went to now-President Joe Biden by a wide margin, she wrote on Facebook, 'I won't stop. They have to kill me,'" according to Insider. "Her defense lawyer, Elita Amato, stressed that Abual-Ragheb was inside the Capitol for only about two minutes and did not cause any damage or commit any acts of violence.

Abual says police did not turn her away or give her a sign she shouldn't be in Capitol. She says she really wanted to see the 'beautiful Capitol' for the first time," MacFarlane reports. "Abual said she didn't know she broke a law until agents came to arrest her. She says she couldn't even hurt a bug… and wouldn't try to take over the country.".....

Lets be glad Manchin has been listening to his voters -

About 63 percent of West Virginia voters said they do not support the amnesty plan, while about 31 percent said they do support the plan. Large majorities across racial lines said they oppose the amnesty, including 74 percent of Hispanics, 71 percent of black Americans, and 62 percent of white Americans.

The amnesty plan is especially opposed by West Virginia swing voters. About 66 percent said they do not support the plan, while only 25 percent said they do.

In addition, 65 percent of West Virginia voters said they would be less likely to vote for Manchin or other politicians who support the amnesty in the Build Back Better Act.

About 63 percent of West Virginia voters said they are opposed to the policy and 72 percent do not want chain migration extended to illegal aliens who would be eligible for the amnesty plan included in the Build Back Better Act.

Majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and swing voters in West Virginia said they are opposed to chain migration.

The poll comes as similar polling has shown that Arizona likely voters are mostly opposed to the amnesty plan. Support from Manchin, who is facing reelection in 2024, along with Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is vital to Biden’s Build Back Better Act.

Money quote: "...but what will likely make the biggest difference in price inflation is time."
Yeah - that's it!
Just wait around a few years before you buy anything and the prices will surely come right back down solely due to time!
That's the ticket.

From your link I found this...among many similar.

‘Shelves aren't empty, oil prices are heading down, but Republicans are locked into a disaster story’

“The same thing is happening in 2021. Inflation is increasing because the nation is once again being pulled out of the ditch by Democrats. And if some of those numbers are currently unusually high, that’s because Trump was such an incredible low.”

Here's one from a month or so ago that's worth considering.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/illinois-high-school-student-gets-probation-slave-ad-hate-crime-n1282032

Here's the short version.

. Black and white 14 year olds are friends
. White 14 year old pulls dick-move (being 14)
. Takes picture of black 14 year old, puts on Craigslist with 'Slave for Sale' ad
. (here's the good part) local DA charges white 14 year old with 2 felonies and a misdemeanor
. Kid pleads guilty, gets probation, now has 2 'hate crime' felonies.

Think about this for a minute. I ran into some similar situations but won't spam the topic.

Life in Blue Mob America. Those wacky teens edition.

" An 82-year-old man was surrounded and assaulted by a group of people riding dirt bikes and ATVs in Boston last Thursday. Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

The victim, a Brookline man, suffered serious injuries and remains in the hospital. He is expected to survive.

State Police said the man was driving his 1996 Buick Century from Park Drive to Boylston Street when 30 to 40 dirt bike and ATV riders forced him onto the curb. Several of the suspects then began smashing windows of the victim’s car."

@ 8:17 am. A Clockwork Orange has arrived. There will be hundreds of similar stories across the land.

Somewhere scenes posted four possible explanations of the left-media-mob mindset for an reasonable person to make heads or tails of. Make sense out of it all. From the top of my head four horsemen ranged from were Ignorance to full blown evil. Covers the bases pretty well.

Boy, did Andy Ngo grab those screen shots and videos posted by the alleged Christmas Parade Mow Down suspect or what? He grabbed them before they were taken down and is blow the narrative completely out of the water.

That dude is one sick MoFro. Pimping bitches across state lines. How did he know she was a minor. Took her from LA and pimped the bitch in Vegas. I don’t think he cares for white people much or getting popped to add to his rap sheet. Oh my. Taking out the Marching Grandmas is something I would not do, but nobody’s perfect. Grandma died doing what she loved best.

What is it with wannabe rap stars and criminals? It seems the glove does fit.

Anyway, kudos to Andy Ngo.

The only "accomplishment" is destruction of life as we knew it.
https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2021/11/24/hillary-clinton-americans-dont-appreciate-bidens-accomplishments/

"HILLARY CLINTON: Democracy is messy. People got kind of frustrated looking at the messy process of legislation. They didn’t really appreciate that within a year, the Biden administration has passed two major pieces of legislation through both the House and Senate. They’ve passed another major piece through the House that will soon be in the Senate. By any measure, those are extraordinary accomplishments and they will help millions of Americans with health care and prescription drug prices, as well as climate change and so much else. But because of the way we are getting our information today and lack of gatekeepers, and people who have a historic perspective who can help us understand what we are seeing, there is a real vulnerability in the electorate to the kind of demagoguery and disinformation that the other side is really good at exploiting."

While the admin alternates between dont believe your lyin eyes and let them eat cake, meanwhile tone deaf creepy grampa joe jets off to feast at a billionaires mansion for turkey day there is actual food rationing happening -

NBC’s South Florida affiliate reported the empty shelves are not set to be restocked anytime soon, nor are the food shortages just confined to holiday foods.

“The limits are for all stores in our seven-state operating area,” a Publix representative told the station. “There is not a set time determined for these limits, and the list can change to include more items or remove items.”

Though Publix has not yet rationed turkeys, Winn-Dixie, another massive grocer, has rationed the turkeys.

A Winn-Dixie spokesperson told the NBC affiliate the rationing is to “ensure all families have an opportunity to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.”

Foods costs have skyrocketed in recent months.

Breitbart News reported the price of turkey has increased by more than 24 percent from 2020.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the list of rationed foods include the following:

Canned cranberry sauce
Jarred gravy
Canned pie filling
Canola and vegetable oil
Cream cheese
Bacon
Rolled breakfast sausage
Paper napkins
Disposable plates, cups and cutlery
Bath tissue
Refrigerated snacks (Lunchables-type items)
Sports drinks
Aseptic-type juices (Capri Sun)
Canned cat food (variety packs)
Refrigerated pet food

DB 7:25 - "...he will be canceled..."
Nah - they'll just down play it or erase it.
The important thing here is to hang these 3 guys for "what should have happened" in the KR trial.
The feds are already planning to charge the 3 without a shred of evidence that the crime was racially motivated. The LSM can't even present a truthful description of what happened in the AA case even after the guilty verdicts. The video clearly shows the kid running over TO the guy with the gun and fighting him. Take your fists to a gun fight and I'm pretty sure you're going to lose. A stupid white guy and a stupid black kid. That's all there is to this case. Just because you're casing houses doesn't give anyone the right to go after you with a fire arm.
That Catholic Univ. better make room for another painting of a new 'saint'. Funny how the black kids that actually do go to college and get good jobs are called names by the lefties when they decide to leave the Democrat Plantation and have ideas of their own.
And we note that even though the white guys were found guilty, Biden says there's 'more' that needs to be done. I guess he's mad because the stores don't re-stock fast enough for the looters.

Let's get back to the Covid "crises". Lock downs and violent riots in Europe and Oz. Yet the cases are rising. Compare to our state where the cases are plummeting. At the present rate we should be down to around a hundred new cases a day by Christmas for the state.
And what is our unemployment?
4th in the nation at 2.8%.
https://idahonews.com/news/local/idaho-unemployment-rate-drops-to-28-among-best-in-nation
We just went through a large amount of Nebraska twice this fall including an overnight stop. No one was wearing masks or following any sort of Covid 'protocols'. They're the top of the list for unemployment. Idaho has one of the lowest rates for "fully vaccinated" and yet we best not only other states, but most Euro states for the lowest amount of cases. I read about the restrictions the rest of our nation is going through as well as the rest of the world as if they were all on another planet. Here the children play outdoors per normal and the neighbors all mingle as well as those going downtown and to the stores and work without a thought of covid fear. Is this is because Idaho and Nebraska etal are 'isolated'? Not at all. Consider that places like Australia can easily isolate and have outrageously rigid lock downs and still have covid while places in the American west have zero lock downs and laughably loose protocols with far less covid cases. Meanwhile Biden invites millions of illegals into the country with zero covid testing and uses tax payer money to fly infected illegals to areas no where near where Biden or his cronies live.
People positive with covid are allowed to mingle with the general population in restricted areas because they have vaccine 'passports' while those with no covid are denied because they have natural immunity and haven't bowed to the govt dictates. Covid is real. It came from China under obviously suspicious circumstances that no other country is willing to investigate and it is being used to subjugate the populaces into hideous and overt usurpation of civil rights. The govt, military and major industries are being purged of free thinking and strong minded people. This is the equivalent of the NAZIs and Commies getting rid of the intelligencia by whatever means. In the 30s those people had the free world to flee to. Whence do they flee now?

I kept waiting for you to post the Norman Rockwell thanksgiving pic until I realized that horrid pic is triggering to so many folks nowadays. Not only on the white privileges and white supremacy angle, it also makes people feel sad that they don't have such a large non-functional family. Thankgiving is NOT a warm fuzzy Rockwell Thanksgiving, but one based on oppression and bad juju.

With that said, Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, your loved ones and to all those who make up the vast Glum Lot. Gobble, gobble.
