AOC rejects Judicial Review

AOC would rather we had a Soviet style government where the courts cannot overturn laws passed by the Politburo.

Of course she does.

Chauvin prediction

The jury will get the Chauvin trial today. I expect that deliberations won’t take long. We should have a verdict by tomorrow night. Here is my hot take:

Chauvin will go to jail. How he gets there, and what he is convicted of, will depend on a few of things.

The jury:

No matter what the evidence says, the jury hasn’t been in a news blackout. We KNOW that there are people who desperately wanted on that jury, and they made it. The jury also knows that eventually, they will be doxxed. For those reasons, I would have made sure that I was not picked for this jury. There is NO WAY I would put myself in this position, if I thought there was the remotest chance that I would be morally compelled to vote “not guilty” because I know what that would mean to my future. The people on that jury are not stupid, and they likely see things the same way. For that reason, I don’t see any verdict other than guilty being possible.

The Democrats:

Never let a crisis go to waste. The Democrats NEED Chauvin to be not guilty, at least of the most serious charges. What’s that, you say? Aren’t the Democrats the ones who WANT Chauvin convicted? No, they aren’t- what the Democrats need is an energized electorate who is angry enough to demand that things change. Mollifying them by tossing Chauvin in jail doesn’t do that. They need perceived ‘injustice’, they need rioting, they need anger. Now that doesn’t happen if Chauvin is convicted on the most serious charges. So mark this one down as “guilty, but of lesser charges” or perhaps even walking away on the state charges, but later tossed in jail on Federal charges like the cops in the Rodney King trials. That will produce rioting and allow more power to be seized on the heels of this ‘crisis’.

In the meantime, stay away from cities and stay away from large groups of black people, at least until things cool down a bit.

Killing the rental market

There is a nationwide eviction moratorium. There is a push to eliminate security deposits. It sounds great, but now the landlord has to file a claim for any damages done to the property by the tenant. This increases costs and risk to the landlord.

Now the newest thing is laws that prohibit credit checks, using a prospective tenant’s rental and credit history in making application decisions, and makes the risks of being a landlord too great for most small businesses.

I know that my wife and I have decided that if this sort of thing comes to pass, the amount that we would have to increase rent to compensate for the added risk would price our rental out of the market. This means that we would no longer be making enough money to make up for the higher risk that this would entail. For that reason, we would likely not renew tenants’ leases, clean the properties up, and then sell them. I don’t think that we would be alone in that.

It’s like the left is deliberately destroying the country.

Commies hate property ownership

One of the things that Communists love to do is destroy landlords. Property owners in California beware, they are actively finding ways to screw property owners and landlords. Where California goes, America follows.

Florida is back, and MSM hates it

The MSM hates that Florida is doing fine. They are painting it as a nightmare. The problem is that no one is buying it, as evidenced by the fact that we are crammed full with people from locked down, Democrat controlled states. The hotels are full. The highways are covered with cars bearing off color license plates.

The left hates that, because the left hates America.

Disney more woke?

Having lived in the shadow of the mouse for decades, I can’t tell you just how stunning it is that Disney World is relaxing grooming requirements- called “The Disney Look.” The story behind that is that Walt Disney once took his brother’s children to a carnival. He saw the unkempt workers and decided that he wanted to open a park where a family could take their children to see a wholesome, family oriented carnival. The idea of Disneyland was born, and that look remained unchained for over four decades.

Now all of that is changing. Disney says that they want to be more inclusive. One of the people in comments wasn’t happy and said so. One lefty responded:

“Cast Members” include all employees, not just those who dress up as characters. Those who clean the bathrooms, man the retail shops, the food service workers etc. ALL employees, not just the characters. So this is great, makes more opportunity for more people, If the MAGA crowd cannot stand to even LOOK at people different than they are, I suggest they go somewhere, like an island, where they can all look at each other and not be offended.

This is more projection- I am betting you that if the tattoo looks like this, the person criticizing above wouldn’t be so supportive of inclusion.

Federalizing the police

Try to find any information about the number of National Guard troops currently deployed in Washington, DC to guard the capitol. The information was there yesterday. It doesn’t seem to be available today. Almost like we are not permitted to know. The last I saw, it was 2,500 troops authorized until at least May 23. The Capitol is fenced off like this:

Nancy Pelosi has selected the commanding General of the Washington, DC National Guard as the Sergeant at Arms, or head of security for the Capitol. The Military is now in charge of Capitol Security. (Of course, Pelosi is claiming that she would have fought off the attackers in hand to hand combat. Big talk from a woman who fled with her armed secret service detail.) The Capitol will be a walled fortress, staffed by armed troops, just like this famous building:

I also would like to know how the Vice-President was giving orders to the Army, seeing as how he isn’t in their chain of command. Doesn’t seem to me that his orders would be lawful ones.

The National Guard troops in the Capitol have formed a QRF, which they recently deployed. Note in the picture below that the QRF has no firearms, and there are no armor panels in their plate carriers. At least three of the eight members of this squad have mags in the ammo pouches. Does this mean that they are only armed with riot gear for this specific mission, but have the option of firearms?

Meanwhile, the US military is busy purging itself of anyone who is remotely Republican or has Conservative leanings. This, coupled with a push to call all police forces tools of racist oppression, makes me believe that we are seeing the pieces being put in place for a national police force. This is typical of communist takeovers- the personnel for the national police force comes from pro-Communist forces. That’s right- BLM and Antifa will likely be the core of this new police force, if history is any guide. In fact, documents leaked in 2016 show that George Soros was planning exactly that, and has been funding BLM to achieve this goal. Barak Obama himself advocated for the Federalization of the nation’s police in 2011.

The Hill has been calling for that since last July– the Federalization of all local police. The Republic would have finally become the Empire.

Armed Insurrection

Politico published a story that talked about the Oath Keepers having “stashed” weapons in a Virginia hotel during the January 6 protest, as if they were up to something nefarious. The entire trope was put in place by the government and their lackeys in the press.

The reality is exactly the opposite. It is virtually illegal for anyone to have firearms in Washington, DC. So the protesters followed the law, leaving their firearms in the nearest location where it was legal for them to be. They rented a hotel in nearby Virginia, stashed the weapons there with a person tasked to ensure they didn’t fall into the wrong hands, and proceeded into Washington for the protest.

Instead of proving some nefarious plot, it shows me that the people involved were doing what they could to comply with the law. If they were actually trying to overthrow the government, it was the worst plot ever.

Gulags are here

The people being held due to their arrests stemming from the January 6 incident are being beaten and tortured by guards while in custody, reports Politico.

One Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, was severely beaten by correctional officers, is now blind in one eye, has a skull fracture, and detached retina. One of the prisoners reports that a guard declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

One attorney remarked that his client was taken to an area of the jail that was out of sight of security cameras, then beaten by guards. “I have seen Ryan. He has two black eyes to this day, two weeks later. All the skin is ripped off both wrists, which shows the zip ties and how tight they were,” said the attorney.

We continue to edge ever closer to the concentration camp phase, it is unreal.
