Know the enemy

Today, I watched a video from BLM/Antifa called “what to do instead of calling the police: building community empowerment” Why did I watch it? So you don’t have to, but can still benefit from the intel. If you still want to watch the video, I will put up a link to it at the end of this post. Let’s start with an intro:

First thing that jumps out at me: haven’t they been saying that “defund the police” doesn’t mean getting rid of the police? Anyhow, let’s look at some of the people on the “panel” narrating this video:

Eliza claims to have been a social worker for over 10 years, who just graduated college with degrees in women’s studies and history. Brinley is a writer and yoga instructor. Sandra’s experience is as an “organizer” of students while she was in college. Katie has degrees in education and gender studies. This intro just reinforces the stereotype that the people pushing this movement are doing so because they have no real job or life skills, and their time in college was wasted complaining and protesting instead of earning an actual, marketable degree.

The video starts by telling the viewer to NOT call support groups for things like domestic violence, because the support groups just turn around and call the police. They are claiming that punishment is not the way to go with a “crisis.”

The video then goes on to say that psychiatric hospitals, foster care, and homeless shelters don’t work, then they list the reasons why. So what is the solution? Community. Yes, the community should solve its own problems.

Then they advocate that each person set up safety plans where they will learn to handle and respond to triggering events. Part of this plan should be to “deescalate” and attempt to calm the person down, so they can navigate through their own crisis, the one that is making them want to be violent.

“Do you need to do anything about someone shoplifting from Target? No, it is none of your business,” the narrator says. What to do if it is YOUR stuff getting stolen, she doesn’t say.

The video then spends 30 minutes asking for donations.

Every one of the people in this video are displaying a complete lack of understanding of human nature and the evil that lives in some people. It is obvious that they have all led sheltered lives. They all think that everyone is good, rational, and will respond to a good talking to.

They believe that if we all just work together, that no one will ever try to take more than their share, and that everyone just wants to get along. This is the biggest flaw with communism- the people who advocate for it assume that everyone will always try their hardest, and no one will take advantage of anyone else.

This is pure wishful thinking and shows that none of these people has ever had to live in the real world. They have spent their entire lives living on campus or in Mom’s basement.

What they don’t realize is that, once police are gone, they can pass all of the rules they want, no one will listen to them. Outlaw machine guns? Nope. Tell me to pay taxes? Nope. Shoot women’s studies members in the face? No one to stop it.

Idiots.

Ruining Tom Clancy

Tom Clancy said that the book Without Remorse began with one basic question: What would happen if an elite warrior like a Navy SEAL declared war on a criminal gang?

That is what happened in the original book- the main character experienced a personal loss when his wife and child were killed in a car accident. He blamed himself for being off fighting a war when his wife and child needed him. So when the woman who managed to make him into a normal man again turned out to have a checkered past, he wanted to help her. The people from her past murdered her and injured him in the process. He declared war on the gang himself and set off on a hunting expedition of his own.

They finally decided to make a movie out of what was an excellent book. And ruined it. First, let’s see what the critics have to say:

Despite a commanding performance from Michael B. Jordan, Without Remorse fails to escape its outdated patriotic tropes and forced franchise place settings.

Wait a minute- patriotism is outdated? Not for some of us. Duty. Honor. Country. Let me quote another movie: “You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall — you need me on that wall.

We use words like “honor,” “code,” “loyalty.” We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line.”

Patriotism isn’t outdated, you quisling cuckold, so go fuck yourself. I spent the vast majority of my life dedicated to the idea that some things are larger than the individual. First, in the military, then more than two decades running into places that most people avoid at all costs. One thing always guided me in my adult life: “No greater love hath man than he who would die so that others might live.” So anyone who thinks that this is outdated can kiss my ass.

In this movie, the plot of the book is changed. The protagonist’s wife is killed by the Russian military. Then he goes to Russia and seeks revenge. In short, the movie isn’t even close to the book. The only thing this movie has in common with the book are the title and the names of a few characters.

Even then, they screwed it up. Admiral Greer, the head of the CIA’s DI who was so ably played by James Earl Jones, is played by some ghetto looking black chick. She is “Lieutenant Commander Greer” a female Navy SEAL. Yeah.

Did I mention that every white male in the movie is either a bad guy, or is killed in the early parts of the movie?

It would have been closer to the book if Antifa were the bad guys. I would have paid money to see that movie, but this shitty assed Wokefest? No thanks. American movies used to be the best in the world. Now they are just formulaic special effects crap with two dimensional characters that have the depth of a mudpuddle. Still, they screwed this up even worse than they screwed up Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger.

When was the last time that Hollywood came out with a movie that was worth watching? I couldn’t tell you. I think the real problem with Hollywood is that no one in that liberal cesspool has any idea what Clancy’s target audience values. They have no idea what those of us on the right feel is important.

That is why all of their movies suck.

Wait for the appeal

The courts have finally put a stop to the government forcing landlords to absorb the cost of their unconstitutional lockdowns.

That is good, because the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was also getting involved, claiming that collecting the debt from tenants who shafted their landlord was also illegal.

According to the CFPB’s analysis and other data:

Millions of families are at risk of being evicted: In December 2020 about 18 percent of renter households were behind on their rent, which means nearly 9 million households at risk of eviction. In a typical year, there are about 900,000 evictions nationwide. Over 27 percent of households with annual income under $25,000 were behind on their rent.
Stopping evictions saves lives: Research shows that COVID-19 infection rates and mortality rates were higher when eviction moratoria were removed. The CFPB’s rule will help ensure that more renters are able to take advantage of their protections and avoid eviction.
Evictions increase racial inequality: Black and Hispanic households are more than twice as likely to be tenants than white households, and they are also twice as likely to be behind on rental payments as of December 2020, according to a March CFPB report . Evictions impose substantial costs on individuals, families, and children, and having an eviction on your record can make it much harder to find a new rental property. Even an eviction filing can make it impossible for a family to locate new housing.

You see what the real reason is? Blacks are refusing to pay rent at a higher rate than whites, so evictions are racist.

The appeal will come in 3…2…1…

Don’t give up your guns

This is what governments do when they are unopposed by armed citizens.

Additionally, a bill passed in Hong Kong last week empowers authorities to bar anyone, without a court order, from entering or leaving Hong Kong – essentially opening the door for mainland China-style exit bans – and fails to prevent indefinite detention for refugees.

Don’t be loaded into the boxcars. Armed citizens are MUCH harder to load into boxcars.

No go zones

Even when they call 911 for help, citizens near 38th street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis (the area called “George Floyd Square”) will get no help. Why? Because police have abandoned the area due to the threat of violence. It is an area where police, and to a large extent white people, are not welcome.

This is right out of the CIA insurgency handbook, which describes the second of the three phases of a revolution:

Phase II (guerrilla warfare phase) is the first level of armed violence. Irregular forces engage in sabotage, interdiction of communication and logistics links, assassination, and selective attacks against government forces. Insurgents expand their secure base areas and, where possible, link them to form strategic enclaves of political autonomy.

The second phase continues until it has caused the government to lose authority and legitimacy. This is soon followed by financial collapse, a breakdown in authority, strong symbolic actions, and perception of dual sovereignty or provisional authority, among others.

A great example of this would be Northern Ireland in 1972 was in the crisis state. The maintenance of barricaded “no-go” and “free” zones in Derry/Londonderry and Belfast during this period contributed to perceptions of provisional authority and separation of resistance from opponents. This is exactly what is happening.

Citizens then cry out for protection. The would be revolutionaries then step in and restore order. The revolutionary forces are then seen as a better solution than the now ineffective government.

This is where we are headed.

Black gun stores are racist

Amid all of this talk about how white supremacy is the largest threat to America, we see this article. To date, we hear about how the gun culture is filled with whites who hate the fact that black people want guns. This article shows something different.

Blacks are arming themselves because they don’t like whites, if this story is to be believed. The black gun store owner showcased in the story had this to say:

“It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News. “I looked around the room and there was nothing but white men behind the counter. There wasn’t even a woman there.”

She claims to have been treated badly, but the only thing she can point to is that there were no women or blacks working there. The story then doubles down:

After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.

Still a third black woman had a gun buying experience:

The class of 20 new gun owners was predominantly Black — exactly what fellow student Erin Wood was looking for. “It’s just nice to have people that look like you in the group. It just makes you feel a little more comfortable to have the instructors be from your community,” Wood said, emphasizing that she sought out Redstone Firearms specifically because it is Black-owned.

Had this story been reversed, and a white gun store owner or gun buyer would have said they want to buy guns and take classes from people who look like them, Biden’s DHS would be dropping a JDAM on the store by now.

BLM in NC

A police shooting in Elizabeth City, NC has caused BLM to start rabble rousing in the area. One of my friends from my days in the Navy lives in the area and found the following note on his front door last night. How is this different from the Klan?

No police?

The founder of BLM says that we need to abolish prisons, jails, and police.

Would she still feel the same if someone were destroying or burglarizing one of the five houses she bought with the money that her followers donated?

Another sob story

Stories of people who are not paying their rent and getting evicted. We are supposed to feel sorry for the people who are living in apartments rent free, and have been doing so for more than a year.

There is Mariva Robinson, who was more than $5,000 behind in rent, and expected the landlord to waive everything and let her stay in the home (still without money to pay) as a part of the Orange County, Florida government giveaway. As a condition of accepting the government giveaway, the landlord has to agree to waive all claims against the tenant, as well as to other, unspecified conditions. In January, she owed $5,000 in back rent. After receiving no payments, the landlord finally evicted her in March, with her owing $12,700 in back rent and other expenses.

Then there is Lichelle Reynolds, who rented a two story home near Tampa for $1,835 a month. The home came with access to a community pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse: all things that the landlord must pay the HOA for, whether the tenant uses them or not. In Florida, if the home owner doesn’t pay the HOA fees, the HOA can foreclose on the property.

At any rate, Ms. Reynolds tried to make partial payments. If a landlord accepts a partial payment, they can’t evict. So the landlord locked her out of the online payment system. I would do the same. Accepting even $50 on a rent of $1835 would forestall eviction and this would be a huge money loser for the landlord.

By the time January came around, Reynolds owed more than $10,000 in back rent. The landlord lost in court, so now she still lives there for free, and owes more than $15,000 in back rent. I’m sure she is heartbroken as she lays by the pool, watching her kids take tennis lessons.

The third sob story involves a man who claims he suffers from blackouts as a result of a Harley motorcycle accident and can’t remember the landlord calling him to ask for money. In this case, the landlord claims he is not subject to the CDC declaration. The article doesn’t say why, but I am guessing they will claim that it isn’t COVID that is preventing him from paying, it is the motorcycle accident. I agree.

The article states “it’s the big, deep-pocketed corporate landlords with property portfolios spanning multiple states that have been the most aggressive in filing eviction cases, even as they have thrived in the pandemic.” The reason for this is simple: the small mom and pop landlords can’t afford the attorneys and exorbitant costs of a legal eviction, while the deadbeat tenant gets a free lawyer. So, the small business owner is forced to eat the cost, and has to shoulder the burden that the government has placed upon the economy. The landlords have had their property taken to house people without compensation, an obvious violation of the takings clause, if we had an honest court system.

There are similar articles from places like Memphis, where a Federal judge has ruled that the Federal government has overstepped its constitutional bounds. There is also this article from Tampa, where tenants are complaining that landlords are refusing to sink any more money into maintaining property that isn’t producing any income.

I feel sorry for these people, I do. However, it is wrong to blame landlords for a situation that they are suffering under but did not cause. If the government is going to deny evictions, then the government should be the one paying for it. At the end of the day, the landlord owns the home, is paying insurance, maintenance, taxes, and HOA fees on the home, but the government tells them that they must let people live there for free.

Sure, they claim that the eviction order doesn’t erase the debt, but let’s be honest here- how exactly is a landlord supposed to collect a year’s worth of back rent? The only option is to evict a tenant to control the losses, knowing that you likely will not see the remainder of what they owe, and yes, future landlords need to know that this tenant is the type of tenant that will go a year without paying rent. Name another business where the business must give away its product for free, plus may not tell anyone else that the company stiffed them.

Imagine a law that said a consumer can buy a car, and then refuse to pay for it, but the car dealer can’t repossess the car, can’t report the default to the credit bureau, and must still provide warranty service if the car breaks down. THAT is what is happening.

New Book

It is sad to me that satire is becoming reality.
