The shooter, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse has been arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide — and more.  Additional information about Kyle Rittenhouse HERE.  and has allowed the situation in Kenosha to spin out of control to the point that Kenosha citizens need citizen militias.

John Antaramian, the major of Kenosha for 16 years, and the situation in Kenosha after the shooting of Jacob Blake to spin out of control — to the point that the citizens of Kenosha felt (still feel?) the need for citizen militias.

How foolish of that "political analyst"! Remember that CNN settled a multi-million-dollar defamation law suit in favor of Sandman.  Perseveration!

Video: Black Lives Don't Matter To Democrats

 From the Washington Times:

Kimberly Klacik is a young Black Republican woman now running for Congress in Maryland’s 7th District — seeking to occupy the seat once held by the late Elijah Cummings. She has emerged with an emphatic new campaign video shot on the streets of Baltimore City. “Democrats don’t want you to see this. They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat-run cities. That’s why I’m running for Congress. Because all Black lives matter. Baltimore matters. And Black people don’t have to vote Democrat,” Ms. Klacik advises in the three-minute outreach released on [August 17, 2020]....

"Among all the composers alive Cherubini is the most worthy of respect." So said Beethoven when asked who, aside from himself, he considered the best of his contemporary composers.

"Medical Solitary Confinement"

This is unacceptable!  See Cruel to be Kind: Nursing Home Lockdowns by Tammy Swofford, John's sister.  Excerpt (emphases mine):

...[John] is paying for the crime of needing to be kept “safe”. We are keeping Americans “safe”! And in the process, destroying what it means to be human.

John has gone from almost five months with no family contact, no holistic hugs and encompassing love, to the added burden of weeks of what is, for all practical purposes, a variation of solitary confinement. He has a roommate. But he doesn’t have… us. He is in a file cabinet… filed away as a numeric that reflects he is “safe”....

Read the entire essay HERE.

America needs to do better than impose sentences of "medical solitary confinement."  Why haven't we done better thus far, all these months since March?

Black Lives Matter Endorses Looting

Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.
The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody. At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to "reparations."
Read the rest HERE.  Also watch the short video. 

So much for "peaceful protests," commemorating the death of George Floyd, huh?

See Two months since the riots, and still no “National Conversation” by Michael Tracey (July 26, 2020). Excerpt:

We are now approaching the two-month mark since the riots that erupted across the United States in late May and early June. There is a reasonable argument to be made that these riots were unprecedented in U.S. history — or at the very least, since the 1960s. Yet if one surveyed the national media today, you’d barely even know anything happened. Nor would you likely be aware that those who bore the brunt of the destruction — largely minorities whose sensibilities don’t fit into any neatly-delineated ideological category — are still acutely suffering from the fallout.

Yes, civil unrest has of course occurred before. But the riots of 2020 exhibited features which belie any easy historical parallel. For one thing, consider their enormous geographic scope. While the most extreme riots in cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and particularly Minneapolis did receive considerable attention — however fleeting, incomplete, and unnecessarily inflected with knee-jerk partisanship — there were also smaller-scale riots in surprisingly far-flung places that you hardly would’ve known about unless you lived in the area, happened to visit, or intentionally sought out what remains of the bare-bones local media coverage. To take just a small sampling: Atlantic City, NJ, Fort Wayne, IN, Green Bay, WI, and Olympia, WA all underwent significant riots, at least per the normal expectations of life in these relatively low-key cities. Did you hear anything about them? Because I hadn’t, and I’m abnormally attuned to daily media coverage. Only because I personally visited did I learn of the damage.

Read the rest HERE.

For the vast most part, WE THE PEOPLE can only be informed as much as the Enemedia want us to be informed.  How can WE THE PEOPLE really remain informed?  By seeking out alternative media!

"The Poetry" Of Joe Biden

From Video: The Poetry of Joe Biden is an Eye Opener That Every American Should Hear....
The Daily Caller video below begins with a clip of Joe Biden garbling his words but then switches to a tough-guy character in a black t-shirt who recites Biden quotes like it’s poetry. It’s frightening because it’s so hard to believe that this candidate is the frontrunner who may win in November. The video is also funny because of the set-up of the background music and ‘Noir’ lighting....

How can any American consider voting for this man?

By the way, when Biden appears with it for a few minutes, I surmise that he's been injected with B Vitamins and vasodilators. That combination helped my grandmothers to be think and function normally, albeit temporarily.

Remember This....

Related reading, from the Patriot Post, July 25, 2020: Stolen Elections Show the Vulnerabilities of Absentee Ballots.  Excerpt:
No question about it: some people need absentee ballots — those with disabilities, those living abroad and others who can’t make it to the polls on Election Day. But pushing for more absentee balloting — even all-mail elections — is unwise. It would make election fraud far easier.

In-person voting occurs under the supervision of election officials, with election observers there to make sure everything is on the up-and-up. This transparency is a vital hallmark of the democratic process. Mail-in ballots, however, are susceptible to being stolen, altered, forged and forced.

All states ban electioneering in polling places, but there are no such bans on electioneering in voters’ homes. This leaves at-home voters vulnerable to intimidation and coercion by campaign staffers, political party activists, and others with a vested interest in the electoral outcome.

Four elections in California, Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina — stolen through absentee-ballot fraud — demonstrate some of the problems.....

What would Stalin have said about mail-in ballots? Hmmmm?
