Stoner Force

The US military will now begin accepting people who once tested positive for weed. I didn’t know that this policy had ever ceased. When I was in the military back in the 80s, you could get a waiver for THC use in your past, as long as you stayed clean after enlisting.

Military and Civilians

So many on the right keep claiming that the military would never fire on American citizens if they were ordered to do so. WRSA comes up with a few examples of the military firing on American citizens. They left out an important one.

The Bonus Army.

Congress had long paid a bonus to troops who fought in times of war, to make up the difference between a soldier’s full time civilian job and his soldier’s pay. Coolidge tried to veto the bonus for the troops of World War 1, but his veto was overridden.

Under the law that was passed,  each veteran was to receive a dollar for each day of domestic service, up to a maximum of $500 (equivalent to $7,900 in 2021), and $1.25 for each day of overseas service, up to a maximum of $625 (equivalent to $9,900 in 2021). Deducted from this was $60, for the $60 they received upon discharge. Amounts of $50 or less were immediately paid. All other amounts were issued as Certificates of Service maturing in 20 years’ time, or 1945.

By 1932, many veterans had been out of work because of the depression, so about 17,000 of them camped out in two Hoovervilles that were located in Washington, DC. They went there with their families, hoping to be paid the bonus that they were owed in 1932 instead of 1945. The two groups numbered as many as 50,000 men, women, and children.

 The camps were tightly controlled and well cared for by the veterans, who laid out streets, built sanitation facilities, set up an internal police force and held daily parades. A vibrant community arose, including churches in tents, kitchens, a library, and even their own post office.

They were told that the only way that they would be paid what they were already owed was to accept work in the Civilian Conservation Corps at Fort Hunt, Virginia.

Some accepted that and went to work, others did not. The veterans thought that by sitting there and refusing to leave, the government would eventually have to relent and pay them what they were owed. Instead, they were given an ultimatum: leave by May 22, or else.

Hoover ordered police to go in and clear them out on July 28, 1932. When some of the veterans refused to leave, one policeman drew his service revolver and shot two of them, both of whom were killed. General Douglas MacArthur then rolled in that afternoon with 1,000 armed troops of the 12th Infantry and 3rd Cavalry regiments, 800 policemen, and six tanks, all supported by machine guns.

Patton, who was in charge of the 3rd Cavalry, had this to say:

“If you must fire do a good job — a few casualties become martyrs, a large number an object lesson. . . . When a mob starts to move keep it on the run. . . . Use a bayonet to encourage its retreat. If they are running, a few good wounds in the buttocks will encourage them. If they resist, they must be killed.”

The infantry charge was made with fixed bayonets and suppported by the use of Adamsite (an arsenic based vomiting agent). Hoover ordered the assault stopped once the veterans had retreated across the river, but MacArthur chose to ignore the president and ordered a new attack, claiming that the Bonus March was an attempt to overthrow the US government. A veteran’s wife miscarried. When one 12-week-old infant died of respiratory complications caused by the chemical warfare attack, a government investigation reported he died of enteritis. In the end, a total of three civilians were killed, more than 1,000 were injured (some by gas, including an 8 year old boy left blind for life) and 2 police officers received injuries.

The negative publicity of the attack on its own veterans was believed to be one of the major factors in Hoover losing the 1932 election to FDR.

Not only were MacArthur and his troops willing to fire on and use chemical warfare agents against veterans and their families, in many cases the veterans who were being fired upon had served in the same units as the soldiers who were attacking them with bayonets. In the end, none of the veterans received a single cent of what they were owed, not in 1932, not in 1945, not ever.

Don’t make the mistake of believing for one single second that the military today would hesitate to kill you, if so ordered.

Concentration Camps

It has long been said that wealthy, elitist Democrats don’t care about illegal immigration because they don’t have illegal immigrants in their neighborhoods. Ron Desantis has proven that old saying to be correct by shipping some illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.

FDR put inconvenient non-whites into military guarded camps. Now the left has found another group of non-white people to put into camps. Less than 36 hours after arriving in Martha’s Vineyard, which declared itself to be a sanctuary location, the immigrants that arrived there were shipped off to a concentration camp to be guarded by 125 National Guard troops activated for that express purpose.

It isn’t that liberals don’t understand hypocrisy or cognitive dissonance, as Miguel argues. They fully understand it. The leftists have simply decided that they don’t have to follow the rules that they have set for others.

In the meantime, everyone on the left who supports this needs to be called a racist who supports putting Hispanics into concentration camps.

Meanwhile, in Martha’s Vineyard

Residents of Martha’s Vineyard, which declared itself to be a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, are freaking out because Florida Governor shipped 50 illegals to their island. It wasn’t so long ago that residents there were posting shit like this:

Wait, they were just virtue signaling? Who knew?

Meanwhile, all of the residents of Martha’s Vineyard are like:

The best part of it was the liberal who said that: “Martha’s Vineyard is just a bunch of rich people. It’s weird that you all think you’re sticking it to the libs. Millionaires ranting about illegal immigrants aren’t liberals.”

My reply? “Don’t the Obamas own a house in Martha’s Vineyard?”

It’s easy to be a “sanctuary city” when there is no one there who needs sanctuary. When you are one of the states being overrun by illegals, it’s no longer academic. 50 illegals? There are millions of them in New Mexico, Arizona, Florida, and Texas.

See? They Can Find You, if they want to

In a follow up to a post from three days ago, it turns out that the cops CAN use plate trackers to find criminals. Or anyone else, if they really want to.

Show Your Work

A few days ago, I promised that I would post more about crime and race to support my contention that blacks are largely unsuited to following the law in a civilized society.

As I said yesterday, science is about following the evidence, wherever it leads. Sometimes the place that the evidence takes us to is inconvenient or flies in the face of our beliefs. The three most reliable evidence of race and crime to my knowledge are the National Crime Victimization Survey, the U.S. Justice Department Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that are based on that survey, and somewhat less reliably, the FBI’s Universal Crime Report (UCR). The NCVS surveys a large group of people about their experiences with crime victimization, so it is not based on what is reported to the police and what the police do with it. The Uniform Crime Reports is based on data from police departments, and is thus generally a less reliable measure of actual crime.

Let’s take a look at these sources and see where that evidence leads us:

We will begin by taking a look at the data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ Race and Ethnicity of Violent Crime Offenders and Arrestees, 2018, with regard to rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault, crimes that are referred to as “Nonfatal Violent Crime.”

When you look at this, you would think that Whites account for more violent crime than other races, until you account for the fact that whites are 60% of the US population, and blacks are only 13% of the population. I have posted numerous times about the statistical likelihood of blacks committing murder and homicide. In fact, the evidence is overwhelming and pervasive to the point that I could not find a single reputable source making a claim otherwise.

This poses the question if people of color live in more violent communities or if the local brand of justice is inherently selective. Experts have long been debating this matter.    

  • Around 2.5% of the US black male population was in prison by the end of 2016. 
  • 2,417 per 100,000 US black male residents were incarcerated by the end of 2016. 
  • There were 467,000 sentenced black male prisoners and 20,400 black female prisoners in the US in 2016. These figures exclude blacks with Hispanic origins and those with sentences that are one year or less. 
  • In 2015, 59% of black prisoners sentenced to more than a year in prison were detained for a violent crime.  
  • 18-19-year-old black males are 11.8 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group. 
  • Black males 65 years and above are 4.4 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group. 
  • In 2016, 34% of black inmates were doing time for public order offenses. 
  • While blacks and Hispanics comprise about 32% of the US population, they accounted for 56% of the US prison population in 2015. 
  • Blacks are five times more likely to be incarcerated than whites. 
  • If blacks and Hispanics share the same incarceration rate of whites, the prison population will decrease by 40%. 
  • As of 2001, one in three black males born in the said year would likely face a prison sentence in his lifetime. 
  • As of 2016, 48.3% of prisoners serving life and virtual life sentences are black. 

Even the left acknowledges that blacks are arrested and convicted of crimes at far higher rates than are whites. They attribute this to a criminal justice system that is racially prejudicial by claiming that whites and blacks commit crimes at the same rate, but blacks are being arrested and convicted at much higher rates than are whites. I reject that for one simple reason: That isn’t what the evidence shows.

In order for this claim to be true, cities that have higher white populations and are otherwise of similar in population density would have similar crime rates to those with higher black populations. That isn’t the case. In fact, the 6 largest cities in the US with the highest murders per capita so far in 2022 are New Orleans, Baltimore, Birmingham, St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Cleveland. All cities with a high percentage of their population being black.

This is why 28% of the residents of the USA are responsible for 53% of the homicides, with the 10 largest cities in the US having 20% of the homicides. Those ten cities are: New York with 333 killings, Chicago 415, Detroit 332, Philadelphia 246, Los Angeles 578, New Orleans 150, Baltimore 234, St Louis 159, Washington DC 104, and Indianapolis 135 means that of the approximately 14,000 murders in the US in 2014, nearly 2700 of them- about 20%- occur in just those ten cities.

In short, it’s been reliable data in this nation for decades: majority black neighborhoods are crime ridden enclaves. If blacks and whites were committing crimes at the same rate, then black and white cities would have similar crime rates. That is demonstrably not the case, therefore black and white crime rates are NOT the same.

Anyone with evidence to the contrary, please provide it. I am however, going to ask that you provide more than “Nuh, uh. You are wrong you racist.” I have shown my work. You show yours.

If a person cares about this country and the people in it, you must care about ALL of the people in it, even the minority groups like blacks. If you want to improve the nation and its people, then you have to first admit where the problems are. If you are going to do something to fix the black crime problem (and there IS one) then you have to do more than simply say that blacks aren’t committing crimes at a higher rate than all other demographics and claim that it’s just whites are being racist. That isn’t going to fly.

I Bet They Don’t Show

A van full of men were pulled over on the Florida Turnpike because a trooper discovered that the van they were riding in had over $1,100 in unpaid tolls. The driver and one of his passengers (who is also the owner) didn’t speak English or have a driver’s license, nor have they ever had a driver’s license. The driver and the owner were arrested and taken to the Lake county jail. They each posted their $1,000 bond (meaning that they paid $100 each to secure a bail bond) and are due in court on September 27.

  • No English
  • Don’t pay tolls
  • No license

I’m sure that they don’t have valid insurance, either. You can’t get insurance without a license. The scam here is that an illegal buys a van with a valid plate from someone who is legal. They leave the tags on the vehicle, because they can’t get new tags or insurance without a valid license. They use the vehicle until it either gets impounded or in an accident. The driver they hit is left holding the bag, unless they have uninsured motorist coverage.

I wonder what the odds of them being illegal aliens are. I also wonder what the odds are that the two actually show up.

This exact scam happened to me on July 4, 2002.

I was on my way home from work when my pickup truck was rear ended. The car was incapable of driving away, there was transmission fluid on the ground. The man who was driving the car did not have a driver’s license, nor any other form of I.D.. He was cited for no license and no proof of insurance. He never showed up to court, because he was an illegal immigrant. I never saw or heard from him again.

The damage to my vehicle was over $1,200. I have a $1,000 deductible and uninsured motorist coverage, so the ordeal cost me $1,000. This same story plays out all over the state every day. You can add this to the true cost of illegal immigration.

They Know Where You Are

USA today recently discovered that Florida police are tracking people through plate readers and toll transponders. This isn’t new. Police have been doing this for years. I first reported on this way back in 2011, when I did a post on plate reading cameras.

There are also readers that track toll transponders without charging the driver a toll. They are everywhere. Then there are people tracking your cell phone. Ask the J6 protesters about that.

That’s the reason why every vehicle I own as a Faraday bag in it. If I ever want to be more difficult to track, I just drop the cell phones and transponders into the bag.

Of course, USA today didn’t care then, and they didn’t care when I showed that NYPD was doing it back in 2014. The only reason that they care now is because they want to make DeSantis look bad. They just fail to mention that the program has been going in for far longer than DeSantis has been in office, and it taking place in more places than just Florida.

US Military Running Out of Money & Supplies

The US has sent about $49 billion in aid to the Ukraine so far in 2022. That is about $1.75 billion per week, or $1,100 for every man, woman, and child in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the US Air Force has announced pay cuts to some airmen, citing lack of funds as the reason.

Not only that, but it turns out that the US military doesn’t have enough artillery shells, rockets, and missiles. It turns out that we have given the Ukraine 800,000 shells for 155mm artillery pieces and another 108,000 shells for 105mm cannons. Nearly a million shells given away, and we don’t have enough as it is.

That isn’t smart.

Scorpions

For the past few days, the news in Memphis has been dominated by the reported abduction of a school teacher who was kidnapped while out for an early morning jog. Her abduction was caught on tape and the story was made even more compelling since she is the granddaughter of a philanthropist billionaire. Her body was positively identified this morning, found less than a mile from her accused abductor. The cause of death hasn’t been released, but we can all assume that it wasn’t due to COVID. I’m also guessing that there will be evidence of sexual abuse.

The man accused from abducting her is Cleotha Abston.

Abston has quite the lengthy criminal history, dating back to when he was just 12 with charges including aggravated assault with a weapon and rape, all before the age of 16. Then, just after his 16th birthday, he graduated to the big leagues when he kidnapped a prosecuting attorney Kemper Durand at gunpoint in 2001, before forcing the man into the trunk of his car. Abston drove Durand around in the trunk of the stolen car for hours before taking him to a gas station ATM in order to force Durand to withdraw money.

Durand would later testify in court that he believed he would be murdered after the withdrawal. As luck would have it, an armed guard happened to enter the gas station during the robbery, and Durand would plea for help. Abston was convicted of the kidnapping and sentenced to 24 years in prison after being tried as an adult. He was released less than two years ago. In the two years since being released, neighbors have referred to him as the “creepy pervert” living down the street. He stayed with his brother, who is also a convicted felon (armed robbery). I mention the brother because he was also arrested last week for possession of drugs with intent (fentanyl and heroin) and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. (I wonder why they didn’t add possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, which would add a 5 year minimum under Federal law. We don’t need more gun laws, we need to enforce the ones we have.)

On Monday, Abston was arrested on charges of identity theft, theft of property under $1,000 and fraudulent use of a credit card, all unrelated to Ms Fletcher’s violent abduction. I’m sure they are about to add first degree murder to that list of charges.

Isn’t it time that we admit that blacks are largely a race of criminals who have a pathological inability to live in civilized society? It’s well documented that more than half of all homicides and nearly half of all violent crimes, are committed by blacks. In Memphis, the chances of becoming a victim of violent crime are 1 in 119, compared to 1 across 341 in Tennessee.

If the young teacher in this case had been willing to admit this fact, she would not have been out jogging in the early hours of the morning. I’m sure that she felt safe, but safety is an illusion. I’ve said this before: Stay away from areas where blacks congregate. Stay out of the cities, and be armed at all times.

As for Mr Abston, I wonder how attached his victim’s grandfather was to her. If I were a billionaire philanthropist and someone murdered my granddaughter, I would find a way to let someone in the jail know that, should her killer meet a particularly painful death in the prison, there would be some kind of reward coming. I might even see if I could arrange for the prison guards to assist in the effort. Justice would be done, and vengeance would be mine.

Isn’t it time that we had enough of this bleeding heart shit?
