As I have been saying, the CIA insurgency manual is being followed almost to the letter by the Democrats. One of the things that must happen is show trials of political opponents. Now they are going after Rudy Giuliani:
Silence the opposition
Not THAT SCOTUS case, the other one
I want to talk about a Supreme Court case. Not the one every other Conservative is talking about, but the other one. The one where the Democrats are fighting to expose the names of political donors.
There will be plenty of time to talk about the gun case, but this case already had oral arguments on Monday, and the ruling will come out in June. If the court decides to rule in favor of California, names of political donors can be released by Democrat politicians. We all know why–
Sending a message
Not only will they destroy people who cross the goals of the left, but anyone who dares defend them from the mob will be destroyed as well. They are making lists, and will destroy anyone who they deem worthy of destruction.
So now they are going to destroy the reputation of the defense expert witness from the Chauvin trial. Once they are done with him, any cop accused by the left will have no chance of being able to defend themselves, because no lawyer or witness will dare come forward.
This sets the stage for what communists always do. They engage in show trials before shipping people off to the gulag.
Silence the opposition
CAS mission vs. civilians
I see an article this morning that the California Air National Guard was planning a Close Air Support Mission against civilians protesting lockdowns and again for civilians protesting the results of the 2020 election.
The report, according to emails obtained by the Los Angeles Times, was that an F-15C from the 144th Wing was ordered onto a 2 hour alert status on several different occasions.
a lieutenant colonel sent a message to Guard members who maintain the F-15C, advising them that a jet must be “ready to take off within two hours,” beginning the Monday morning before the election.
The good news contained in the article was that enough officers expressed concern that the CO of the squadron had to send a memo saying that “there is no expectation that the F-15C will be used in any way in support of civil unrest.” He went on to instruct the recipients to keep him apprised of “any requests or upcoming requests” from California Guard headquarters in Sacramento.
This seems to indicate that at least SOME of the NG officers would refuse such an order. Now such an order isn’t DIRECTLY a hazard: AFAIK, the F-15C is an air superiority fighter and, other than strafing, isn’t really capable of a ground support role, but the presence of the fighter flying overhead would send a clear message to any protestors on the ground: you can’t fight us when we are willing to use fighter jets.
This was ordered by Democrats, who if you remember, were incensed when a medivac helicopter hovered over rioters in DC. These idiots don’t understand that, once you cross the line into using combat forces against noncombatants, you are opening the door to combat.
They are correct in saying that there are no ways for US civilians to fight against supersonic fighter jets. However, those jets have a long logistical tail. The pilots, the people who arm, repair, and service those aircraft, their families, and the people who supply the spare parts and ordinance for those jets all become fair game. They, and their support are easy to get while they are on the ground.
Guard the jets, then the fuel convoy is fair game. bring them inside the base, and their families become fair game. The essence of the National Guard is that they are from and part of the very citizens that you are planning to use them against.
The problem with Democrats is that they hate and have such a fear of weapons and the military that they have very little understanding of what they are doing. Some people aren’t scared by the mere sight of weapons.
Not only that, but what makes them think that a pilot who just got done watching them crucify a police officer for the death of a single black man would be willing to pickle off ordnance from a fast mover and not consider what would happen if it turned out that he killed even one wrong person?

The Conservative Treehouse reports that the Postal Service spying scandal isn’t spying on ALL Americans, just the Conservative ones. Since the election, Democrats have been making lists of enemies of the state. In the beginning, they openly bragged about it, but then were told to keep it quiet. Now that list is being expanded and we are on lists. Not only is the government doing it, they are crowdsourcing it.
If you get mail from the NRA, Republican politicians, the Second Amendment Foundation, GOA, veteran’s organizations, gun stores, or other right leaning sources, you are on the list. If the ads on your web browser or the emails in your spam folder are for gun related or Conservative websites, you are on the list. Even reading this blog, well-
As I have blogged before, Vzyali was a word that struck fear in the hearts of Soviet citizens. It means “have taken,” with “they” implied to have done the taking, as in “They have taken.” There was no pronoun or noun needed to indicate who “they” were- “they” were unspeakable. It was never “arrestovani” or arrested, because those who were taken were never seen or heard from again.
One of the things that has scared the shit out of me is the communist habit of “disappearing” people. When I was a boy scout, my scoutmaster was a man who was born in the Soviet union. His parents smuggled him out hidden in the trunk of a car when he was a teenager. He never saw or heard from them again. They were taken, because the government found out that they committed the sin of smuggling their child to safety. Shot in the head, sent to a gulag. Who knows?
When the Soviets disappeared someone, they didn’t usually kill them. In fact, they usually didn’t, unless the killing was being used as a high profile example to drive a point home. Even in the days of Obama, the Federal government was targeting Conservatives. Now that the Democrats have seized control, they are about to get their tyranny on.
Some of the lists are openly on the web. So go to this one, and see if you are on it. Whether you are or not, find prominent Conservative citizens in your area and keep tabs on them. If they begin to disappear, you will know that vzyali. Likewise, get together a list of left wing locals. Keep tabs on them as well. Intelligence is the best tool we have right now.
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.

I support this bill
The MSM and the left (I repeat myself) is all aflutter because a Republican in Minnesota has proposed a law that would strip convicted rioters of their ability to receive government giveaways. They claim it is a violation of the rights of the criminals. Let me explain why it isn’t:
1 You have a First Amendment right to PEACEABLY assemble. If you are convicted of a violent crime, you aren’t a protester, you are a rioter. Therefore, punishing someone for violent acts committed during a riot is not a violation of your first Amendment rights, any more than convicting someone of unlawfully shooting and killing a person is a violation of their Second Amendment rights.
2 You don’t have a right to those things. They are benefits. If people had a right to them, then you could not be denied for things like income.
3 They claim it adversely affects Blacks. Well, since BLM is a black organization, and that organization is the one rioting, that isn’t surprising. Who should it affect?
Don’t want to lose your benefits? Protest, but don’t riot. Are you really so stupid that you don’t know the difference? Or do you think WE are?
Hey Biden: GFY
Biden says that he will cancel 4th of July unless people do as they are told. You aren’t my boss, you fucking dictator wannabe. I am gonna buy fireworks, beer, and have myself a big, fat, tasty BBQ. I am checking the Constitution, and I don’t see jack shit in there about the President having any power over that whatsoever. So, Biden- Go Fuck Yourself.
Anyone who voted for him can go fuck themselves, too. You told me Trump was a dictator. You hadn’t seen anything yet.
Why isn’t the economy getting better?
Restaurants in Florida can’t get enough staff to fully open. Some are so desperate for workers, they are offering signing bonuses of up to $400 for wait staff. It turns out not to only be Florida, and not just restaurants.
So what’s going on? Unemployment is at 6 percent, so it isn’t so low that we have full employment. The labor participation rate is at an all time low- only six out of every ten adults are working.
Why? Because the government is paying people $575 a week to not go to work. That works out to $30,000 a year. But that isn’t all. Unemployment isn’t subject to Social Security and Medicare taxes. This means that a person on unemployment is taking home the equivalent of $32,300 a year. Now we find out that there is a program beginning in July that will pay people another $300 per month per child.
So let’s explain what is going on here: (Sorry about all of the math and numbers)
A pair of parents were working to support their two children. They were both working in the tourism industry in Orlando. Together, they were making $50,000 a year. This made them middle class, putting them in the 43rd percentile. Usually, they worked different days, but would occasionally pay for daycare. In all, day care was costing them about $400 a month. This left them about $3,000 a month.
They were laid off at the start of COVID. Now they are getting unemployment in the amount of $1,150 per week between the two of them. There is no longer a need to pay for child care, and they get to spend all of their time in leisure, instead of working. They now are left with $3,600 a month.
Why would they ever want to return to work? It isn’t COVID that is destroying this nation. It is the government. What we are doing is living off of our credit cards. Sooner or later, the cards will be maxed out and the bill will be due. The powers that be know this. The clock is ticking, and we are running out of money and time. What is coming will have to happen before we are out of money.

Hey! Military investigators- while you are purging the Military of people who express political opinions, why don’t you investigate this idiot?
You won’t, though, because he isn’t on the right. Yes, he is an idiot. He calls for the military to mutiny and “point our weapons at the people who keep killing black people.” The police kill a dozen or so black people a year. That isn’t even a single weekend in Chicago. Wanna point your weapons at those who kill black people? Point them at other blacks.
