It might seem otherwise but it’s actually true. I hang out on places like Daily Kos. All of the people I follow on Twitter are progressive or liberal Democrats. To me, the Republican Party is the enemy, especially this blatantly fascist latest version. Thing is though, don’t be fooled. They’ve always been like this.
I’ve been on the Left my whole life. People keep telling me I’m a conservative, so I’ve been researching conservatism all over the world. I more or less hate it everywhere. It always the same garbage, against everything I stand for. I know I take a lot of anti-SJW points on here and I don’t write many liberal articles, but that’s because my audience has been mostly conservatives and Republicans forever.
Most liberals hate me and don’t even ask about the people further left, who seem to want me dead. Liberals come here for a bit and then freak out and run away, screaming, “Racist! Sexist! Misogynist! Homophobic! Transphobic! Bigoted! Conservative!” It’s sad because I’m probably left on the vast majority of issues and I’m only conservative on some social issues, and even then, I’m not as conservative as a Republican social conservative. But liberals and Democrats are party-liners nowadays, as bad as Communists.
So I’ve never had much of a liberal audience, and hence there’s no audience for me to write for. But I’m definitely a man of the Left. And the Republican Party is absolutely fascist in its present orientation, Trump’s presidency has been a horrorshow that doesn’t even seem real because it’s so beyond anything I’ve experienced. And right now, of course Trump is trying to steal an election. Really the Republican Party is trying to overthrow a liberal winner of an election with a coup.
That’s what the Latin American Right does. I said the other day that our breed is starting to resemble them. The Latin American Right believes in minority rule forever and they also believe that the Left has no right to rule their countries, no matter how many elections they win. They’re simply not allowed to win.
If they lose an election, they typically scream fraud when there never is any, or they foment a military (Honduras), legislative (Paraguay), judicial (Brazil), or economic (Venezuela) coup of some sort or another. The Latin American Right is absolutely fascist in character and behavior.
There is absolutely zero evidence for any of the crazy voter fraud (actually election fraud) allegations levelled by the Republicans. I’ve studied them all in depth. For one thing, there’d be a vast blue shift in the difference between the outcome and the exit and pre-election polls. Instead there were a mere two blue shifts.
And there were 39 red shifts, many of large percentages. There is no way on Earth you could possible have 39 red shifts, often of a significant number of points, in any election. Poll failure, especially massive failure of all the polls – mass poll failure, does not occur. The polls are not rigged for the Democrats. In particular, exit polls pretty much never go off. They can’t. Any time you have mass shifts in outcomes versus exit polls, the only explanation is fraud.
In a number of states, the Republicans stole up to 10 points. They’ve never been this brazen before. I’d tell you if the Democrats cheated and they didn’t. The Republicans are projecting. They’re the ones who engage in election fraud via the voting machines that they own and run.
The latest appalling news is that the legislatures of 17 Republican state governments (many stolen with voting machine election fraud, particularly in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Wisconsin. They had a lot of help from gerrymandered districts that make it almost impossible for a Democrat to carry them.
Outrageously, the Supreme Court approved these blatantly anti-democratic gerrymanders. The Republicans have been engaging in mass voter suppression for 20 years now. When you have mass voter suppression, you do not have democracy. When you have gerrymandered districts that the opposition can never win, you do not have democracy. When you have continuous election theft via electoral fraud with voting machines for two decades, you do not have a democracy.
I don’t know why Democratic morons keep screaming about saving our democracy. Supposedly we just rescued our democracy this time around. Like Hell we did. We simply made a dent in the rightwing authoritarian government we have had for at least 20 years in this country. America has no democracy. We are an authoritarian state – a dictatorship in a sense. Americans need to quit insisting we have a democracy here. That went away a long time ago.
The trick now is to get it back, which is the project I support. I support bringing democracy back to the US and rescuing it from this rightwing corporate dictatorship. And for that we need to do some extreme things like pack the Supreme Court, expand the lower courts and pack them too, add DC and Puerto Rico (if they wish) as new states, etc. I don’t want to fill the judges’ seats with unfair partisan Democrats. Then we will be replacing their Republican dictatorship with a Democratic dictatorship. I will settle for fair-minded justices who are committed to bring back our democracy and sustaining it going forward.
I remember watching the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968. That was pretty impressive. Saw the whole thing on TV at age 10. I was already quite interested in politics and foreign affairs at that age. Mayor Daly, a Democrat, hauled his cop goons out and they set about busting heads. Not long after that was the Days of Rage, and that’s when the peaceful antiwar movement petered out. Now the antiwar movement had a violent wing.
Out of this wing grew the Weathermen. The Weathermen and others set off 50,000 bombs in US in the early 1970’s. The almost always phoned them in ahead of time so people could be evacuated and they usually went off in the middle of the night.
They did kill one man, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, staying late in the lab when a Weathermen bomb went off at 3 AM. Everyone screams about that, but the Weathermen were trying to stop the war. That’s what all the bombs were about. They killed one guy. How many did Nixon kill? Who killed more? The Weathermen were trying to end the war and save lives. Was Nixon? Hardly.
I still support the bombing campaign of the Weathermen to this day. In fact, in the 1980’s, I was on the mailing list of their aboveground organization, the John Brown Book Club out of the Bay Area. I got their bimonthly, Breakthrough. They were already pretty insane by them. Hell they were insane back in the day.
Remember that lunatic Bernadine Dohrn’s crazy rants praising the Manson murders? These idiots were already on the “White people are evil” thing. Dohrn would give speeches telling young White women to kill their White babies after they were born so as not to create more evil White people.
Ten years later, in 1981, they hooked up with some crazies called the Black Liberation Army. I believe the BLA was a radical split from the Black Panthers. In the early 1970’s, debate swirled around the Panthers. The war was still on. The Panthers had not achieved their goals. But they were still ostensibly committed to more or less peaceful change. At least they were not committed to open armed struggle.
The bomb-throwers called the peaceful change types sellouts. They felt, as usual, that peaceful change would get them nowhere and the only way to achieve their revolutionary goals was armed struggle. Most of this group split off from the Panthers and the Panthers said good riddance. Attempts to link the Black Panthers to the BLA radical armed revolutionaries are false and sleazy. Don’t fall for it. The Panthers were ok.
Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) was one of their most famous guerrillas. They were completely insane of course, like all the armed groups back then, but I have to admit she was one badass bitch. She’s in Cuba now.
She’s wanted for the shooting death of a police officer who was killed in a shootout with BLA members they pulled over in a car. She’s innocent. She got shot and was badly hurt. Hell, she was in the back seat and didn’t even have a gun. The driver, a man, fired most of the shots including the bullet that killed the cop. He himself was killed.
Incredibly, Chesimard escaped after that shootout (!). She was later imprisoned in a federal prison but the her comrades in the BLA actually broke her out of a federal prison in Florida by disguising themselves as workers delivering linen to the prison. They broke her out in a wild scene and even managed to escape. Chesimard then vanished off the face of the Earth for 2 years.
Actually she was underground, but you have to realize that the Weathermen, etc. were being helped by a huge network of maybe 1 million people, the vast majority of whom have never been caught and have never even been suspected of a crime. 2 years later, Chesimard mysteriously popped up in Cuba!
In 1981, the remains of the Weathermen had taken up the radical Black cause of the BLA, who were Black separatists who wanted to set up a Black state. The remaining Weathermen apparently felt that Blacks were the leading edge of the revolution.
See the parallels nowadays with BLM? The similarities don’t end there. The leadership of BLM itself and its associated organizations includes the remains of the old Weathermen, now reorganized as the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, still Communists but now apparently pursuing the peaceful road to power.
Another group called the Freedom Road Socialist Organization is also behind a lot of the BLM protests, especially the violent aspects. These are also Communists. I hate to give credit to wild rightwing accusations, but I assure you that the leadership of BLM and its associated organizations are literally Marxists and Communists.
The Weathermen and the BLA robbed a Brinks truck in September 1981 and a wild shootout ensued. Some guards were killed along with a some BLA men. It looks like the BLA were the ones who shot the guards. They were pulled over on the freeway and BLA fighters burst out of the back of the van, guns blazing. More people died. The survivors got away again but were quickly caught. So there ended the saga of the Weathermen.
The FBI conducted raids of activists associated with the Weathermen and the BLA soon afterwards but they came up empty-handed. Everyone had been tipped off and fled ahead of the feds. In one case, the suspects had left so quickly that the coffee kettle was literally still heating on the stove when the FBI burst in. I’m wondering if the Weathermen and BLA had people inside federal law enforcement who tipped them off.
The Weathermen who were arrested in the Brinks robbery, including a few women, are still in prison. One, (((Kathy Boudin))) died in prison of cancer recently. Incredibly, her son, who is probably quite radical himself, recently won the election for District Attorney for the city of San Francisco!
Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers went underground and stayed there for ~20 years (I told you they had a good support network), but were captured after decades on the lam. They were given very short sentences and pretty much let off the hook. I heard Ayers on the radio recently and he was completely unrepentant, defending every bomb the Weathermen ever set off.
They are both now professors in the Education Department of the University of Chicago. They are in deep with the Democratic Party in the area the Democratic city government in Chicago and are pretty much political fixtures in Chicago. Yes, Barack Obama appeared at a couple of roundtables where they were present. Much was made of this by the Retard Right, but there’s less there than their seems. Everyone who is anyone in Democratic politics in Chicago knows Ayers and Dohrn.
They’re cleaned up now anyway and for all intents and purposes, they’re respectable citizens. What’s wrong with this stupid country anyway? In Latin America, former armed Leftist guerrillas lay down arms and then get elected to top posts in the government. The Presidents of Uruguay and Brazil in recent years were both former armed guerrillas from long ago. Why are we so hung up and weird? Let me know when we join the rest of the continent of the Americas, as is our inevitable destiny .
First of all, all three of these men were absolutely antifa, but antifa is not a group. Instead it’s an idea. It’s like saying they were all Communists or anarchists. Are you going to make an organization called “Communism” or “anarchism” illegal? See how dumb it is to try to make antifa illegal? Antifa’s not an organization, and you can’t ban an idea. At least not yet. Don’t worry though, the SJW’s are working on it!
First, 37 (not 38 as everyone says) year old Joseph M. Rosenbaum, later Joseph Don Rosenbaum, after a name change. His race is often given as White, but prison records actually list it as Wigger.
I learned quite a bit about this fellow in doing in depth research into this charming fellow yesterday afternoon.
Born in Texas. At some point moves to Pima County, Arizona, where his father appears to be an attorney.
At age 16, he appears to have married in Arizona. He seems to have divorced afterwards, but there’s no record of it.
Around age 18, he enrolls at Pima County Community College, but his time there is short.
At age 18 in 1992, he is sentenced to 12 years in prison on what looks like two counts for Sexual Contact with a Minor, 10 years for one count and 2 years for the other count. I have revised my view of this crime, and I now think he raped a 15-17 year old girl with either force or drugs.
He ends up suing the state for prison conditions a couple of times, once because his toilet overflows. The toilets are terrible in those places, I must say. I think they are designed to overflow.
He gets out in 2014, now aged 30. But he hasn’t learned much as the first thing he does after he gets out is get arrested for absconding on parole. He’s sentenced in 2016 and apparently serves one year for this offense. He seems to act better this time in prison. I did find some documents on this case, but nothing much of interest.
I think for all of these cases, someone would need to go to Pima County Superior Court and do a record search.
He moves to Wisconsin at some point, and he ends up being the father of a two year old child. The girlfriend and child live in Waco, Texas, Rosenbaum’s hometown. When he moves to Wisconsin, he has to register on the Sex Offender Registry, but he’s listed as non-compliant.
He has a conviction for Carrying a Firearm while Intoxicated. He also has a record for the minor crimes of Disobeying an Officer and Disturbing the Peace (Excessive Noise). He was affiliated with an antifa grouping called People’s Revolution. A member of this group has been accused of shooting at a police officer in Wawatosa, Wisconsin. He’s generally considered to be White. We tried to find information to see whether his race was White or Wigger, but we were unable to find any. Please comment with any updates on Grosskreutz’ race.
I find this quite shocking that so many of these White rioters have criminal records. It’s almost like antifa are a bunch of criminals!
Rittenhouse, 17 years old, of Antioch, Illinois is a member of a group called The Libertarians. There are reports that he is also associated with the Three Percenters, but these are not verified. There are also reports that his social media sites (now wiped) are full of White Supremacist and misogynist content, however, none of those posts was produced. There’s no evidence at all that he is a White Supremacist or a misogynist. Kyle is a cop-fan and served as a police explorer. He is a member of many Blue Lives Matter groups. He’s also apparently quite good with an automatic weapon. He’s obviously had some sort of training.
Kyle answers a call on Facebook for people to go to Kenosha on the third day of the stupid riots over nothing there in order to defend the innocent businesses that are getting destroyed, looted, and torched. Kyle and a group of 300 other men answer the call to go protect the businesses. Kyle is armed with an AR-15 automatic weapon, which shouldn’t even be legal in the first place and is in fact not legal for him to possess due to his age. He also brings along a first aid kit to help any injured protestors.
There is a photo of him erasing graffiti on a public building the previous day. The cities in his area have been hit by Black Lives Matter protests/riots for some time now. A woman who lives across the street from Kyle said everyone there is sick of these riots, which she attributed to outsiders coming into their city. She also stated that there were cases of Whites being pulled out of their cars and beaten for the crime of Being White, soon to be a misdemeanor in the US. It’s not illegal to be White yet, but don’t worry, the SJW’s are working on it.
Kyle drives himself to the riots. A rumor that his Mom drives him is not true. He joins the rest of the militia. At one point, a police vehicle stops and asks the group if they want anything, such as water. Kyle says he wants water, and a bottle is thrown to him. There is also a report that police congratulated the militia for what they were doing. Personally, I think it’s great that these brave men answered the call of their land and their people to go to Kenosha to protect perfectly innocent businesses from getting destroyed. Kyle is also interviewed by a citizen journalist that evening.
At some point later on that night, a disturbance ensues. From what we can tell, an antifa mob is chasing Kyle and threatening him. Kyle is terrified and is running away from them. (((Joseph Rosenbaum))) throws an object at him that appears to be a Molotov cocktail but is not. He then pursues Kyle through the gas station where Kyle has taken refuge from the violent mob pursuing him. A shot is fired by a man who is also pursuing Kyle behind (((Rosenbaum))). Kyle turns around at the sound of the shot.
Soon (((Rosenbaum))) closes in on him and is on top of him or almost on top of him. He tried to take Kyle’s gun away. Kyle wrestles the gun away and fires four shots at (((Rosenbaum))), hitting him in various places on his body, most importantly one shot to the head. I feel that this is straight up self-defense of a man assaulting him and trying to take his gun away from him. If you try to take a gun away from a lawfully armed person, they can shoot you to keep you from taking your gun away, as you may well use it on them after you take it. This is no murder. It’s Justifiable Homicide.
A crowd forms around (((Rosenbaum))), trying to help him. (((Rosenbaum))) will later die of his wounds. Kyle hovers on the edge of the crowd for a bit. He pulls out his phone and calls a friend, reporting that he just shot a man. He is soon running away from the people around the dying man. He starts running faster. Antifa start yelling that Kyle has just shot a man.
Kyle runs into the street, pursued by an angry mob of antifa yelling to get him. A shot is heard. Kyle turns around in responses. He then turns around again and keeps running down the middle of the street. He trips and falls. The mob sets on him. The first antifa runs up to him and kicks him in the head! Kyle turns and fires at him, but misses.
Soon a second antifa, (((Anthony Huber))) – hey wait, what’s with all these parentheses? You’d almost be inclined to think that antifa are a bunch of Jews!
(((Huber))) sets on Kyle and smashes him in the head with a skateboard. Also tries to grab Kyle’s gun. Kyle turns around and shoots at (((Huber))), hitting in the chest. Huber staggers backwards. He later dies also. This shot was also absolutely in self-defense.
Next Kyle is approached by antifa Gaige Grosskreutz.
I know what you are thinking, but he’s actually a German. Wisconsin is full of Germans, you know. And there are not many Jews. Probably all the Jews in Wisconsin showed up for those riots.
Grosskreutz is armed with a Glock pistol and charges rapidly at Kyle, closing in on him. Kyle shoots him once, incredibly blowing part of the man’s arm away. Hey, assault weapons are weapons of war, you know? Gaige later said that the only thing he regretted was that he didn’t kill Kyle.
This was absolutely a self-defense shot.
The rest of the crowd runs away and some put up their hands. Kyle then starts walking. Some shots are fired off, apparently warning shots fired by Kyle. After a while, Kyle is walking. He approaches a fire truck and two police vehicles. He attempts to flag them down to let them know he just shot three men, but the police can’t be bothered. They soon descend on the scene, rope it off, and try to figure out what happened.
A warrant is later issued for Kyle’s arrest and he is found in Lake County, Illinois. He is charged with a couple of counts of First Degree Murder for the first two (((kills))) and a count of attempted murder for the shot that hit Grosskreutz.
As far as I am concerned, this kid is innocent. All shots were absolutely fired in self-defense. You know, it’s not a good idea to attack an armed man. He has the right to use that gun to defend himself, you know?
I obviously don’t care if he’s a misogynist, and I doubt if he is anyway. He’s a bit young for woman-hating. I used to argue against the notion that gay men hated women. I used to tell women I dated that in order to truly hate women, a man would have to be a heterosexual! This always brought down the house believe it or not, and for some reason I often had sex with them soon after I said that. Almost like apologizing for straight men’s misogyny turns women on.
I also don’t care about the White Supremacy, which hasn’t been proven anyway. If he is, that is lamentable, but it doesn’t detract from his heroic deeds. And yes, to me, Kyle Rittenhouse is a hero. He blew away two SJW’s and badly wounded a third, something I’ve been itching to do forever now (but never will of course, as I am generally homicidal only in fantasy).
I don’t care about his politics either. Of course he’s hard rightwing. Everyone against antifa/BLM (AB for short) and SJWism in general is rightwing, often hard rightwing. And everyone on the left and center is either supporting AB and SJWism or, in the case of some Centrists, have gone neutral. Everyone that is except for me and hopefully some other folks on the Alternative Left. We’re probably the only people on the left cheering Kyle on, but then, we’ve always been weird.
To me, Kyle is a man with a message. He looked around and saw that his nation were under threat from violent, destructive SJW’s, anarchists, Western Commies, radicalized ghetto Blacks, and other assorted dipshits. Our buildings are in rubble, looted, and aflame for no damned good reason at all. His nation was under attack by violent mobs of brainwashed shitheads.
For BLM. For a lie. Because BLM has always been nothing but a gigantic lie.
Amidst all of this, Kyle Rittenhouse sent a message:
The latest police shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, age 29, occurred yesterday at 5 PM in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He is still alive, but he was shot seven times in the back. Of course, Blake was basically ghetto, a thug and career criminal.
The vast majority of these young Blacks getting shot, often fatally, by police are not good people at all to say the least. What sort of people have regular run-in’s with the police. Not fine upstanding citizens. They’re ghetto thugs and thugettes. They’re shitty people. Now, I’m not saying shitty people should be shot. You may well be a few million young Black men who are pretty damn lousy people. But I don’t support killing any of them. Even the ones in prison for terrible crimes. I just don’t believe in executing people no matter how awful they are, sorry.
But don’t fool yourself that most any of these people are any good. Most are real lousy people, to say the least.
Blake, who looks horribly ghetto, has a criminal record. Two years ago, he pulled a gun on people in a bar. When police arrived, he refused to cooperate with officers and had to be taken down by a police dog. Seems like he had a death wish, conscious or unconscious. This almost looks like a suicide by cop.
Police officers are sent to an address with a report of a domestic disturbance. There is a fight going on there between several ghetto Black women. Blake indeed does break up the fight.
WARNING: this video is extremely graphic.
Police in Kenosha, Wisconsin appear to shoot a man seven times in the back at point blank range after he ignores commands. We’re no other non-lethal methods considered, @KenoshaPolice? pic.twitter.com/dO4VimGCky
As the video opens, there is enough of a commotion for someone to start filming. Police already have their guns out as the video opens, which never happens unless something very serious is going on.
A struggle is going on on the other side of the car, probably because he’s resisting arrest like almost all these guys are, which is pretty much why they get shot in the first place. He’s down on the ground. One cop punches him in the ribs and another cop tazes him to get him under control. But a Tazer only knocks you out for five seconds. Blake gets up and all three cops jump backwards and pull out their weapons. He’s apparently armed himself with something, apparently a knife.
The video on this page shows that Blake was involved in a huge fight with police before he gets free of them, whips out a knife, and starts to walk away.
He gets up after being tazed and walks along the opposite side of the car.
An object appears in Blake’s left hand. Turns out it’s a knife, apparently a karambit knife with a curved blade. This is an Indonesian silat knife.
He turns in front of the car, the police looking very alarmed and still yelling for him to drop the object. It sounds like they are yelling, “Drop the gun!” but they could be yelling, “Drop the knife!”You can still see the knife in his hand.
He turns and starts moving down the near side of the car heading for the driver’s seat. The police are right behind him, yelling. He opens the car door and starts to get in. Police are pulling on his shirt to try to pull him out of the car. He seems to bend down into the car and appears to be reaching for something behind the driver’s seat under the seat. Suddenly the police start shooting. Seven shots are fired. Correct, into his back.
However, there is now a rumor that when Blake was fighting with police, he said he was going to get a gun out of his car. Then he walks over to the car, opens the door, and appears to reach down behind and under the front seat. Guess what? This is exactly where he keeps his gun. In that very car too. We know this because in a previous arrest, his car was searched and his gun was found in this precise place. That’s an excellent reason to shoot him right there, gun or no gun, it doesn’t matter.
This combined with the previous incident shows strong tendencies towards suicide by cop. Whether these young Black men are actually suicidal or are just so angry that they don’t care, I’m not sure. At a certain point, you’re so furious that you don’t care if you live or die. It’s not suicidality. It’s like being in a war. Instead of being suicidal, I think a lot of these young Black men are blinded by rage and consciously or not wish to go down fighting. Like a lot of soldiers in wartime.
A very ghetto Black woman shows up and starts screaming hysterically. The video ends. Blake’s three children are sitting in the car and witness their father getting shot. Not a very good experience for them.
From the looks of it, Blake was resisting arrest, like almost all of these idiots.
Quite honestly, if Blake has that knife in his hand, and he won’t drop it, police have a right to shoot him right there, sorry. I don’t see why police have to wait until the suspect actually tries to stab them with the knife before they start shooting. He could have easily stabbed that cop pulling on his shirt. And that cop could have died. Got a knife in your hand and won’t drop it, get shot. Furthermore, by his own admission, he appears to be reaching for a gun in his car.
Large protests follow. The crowds are mostly mixed people with BLM signs. Interestingly, the crowds are half-White and half-Black.
Riots follow in the night. The rioters seem to be more Black than the very mixed protestors, but there are some White rioters too. It’s hard to tell because it’s so dark. There is a video of people smashing up a storefront with bricks and all of these rioters were Black. People with guns are leading the mobs. A man with a gun shoots up a police car. Trash trucks are set on fire. An entire city block is in flames. A parking lot full of cars goes up in flames. A police officer is hit in the head with a brick, a potentially deadly weapon, and goes down.
In other words, much of the usual mayhem ensues. The governor of Wisconsin issues a provocative statement attacking police and sympathizing with the rioters. Very irresponsible.
It is now daylight. The riots went on through the night. It is now calm and there are calls to come clean up the damage.
Alpha Unit: I am responding to this narrative that all this destruction and violence is a “Black” thing. That’s not the whole story.
I would agree with you that the riots are not all a Black thing. Head on over to American Renaissance and see how these are being portrayed as Black riots. Well, there are Black riots in this country, but these don’t really qualify. In some cities, in these riots it is mostly Blacks rioting. Those are cities in the South like Atlanta, Louisville, Birmingham, and some other places that elude me at the moment. I believe there were Whites in the crowd in Atlanta though.
In general, the rioters were a mix of young Black, Hispanic, and White men, mostly antisocial and living on the edge of society, most without decent or any jobs or much to lose. I saw many young men rioting right alongside the Blacks. The Whites looked like skate punk and Antifa types. A lot of Whites were holding up BLM signs and chanting BLM slogans.
In LA, most of the rioters tended to be Hispanics.
In Las Vegas, the crowd was very mixed, mostly Hispanics with some Whites, even including White women, with a few Blacks in the mix too. The white rioters seemed to have more of the fancier materials you need to start a riot.
In Minneapolis, many of those smashing and setting things on fire were young White men, often skate punk types. In some cases, they worked right alongside inner city type Blacks. However, I did see an interview with a Minneapolis Black gang member who said that all of the gangs in the city (mostly Black) were working together in these riots to cause mayhem even though a lot of them were enemies normally. So there is also a criminal gang element, but that shouldn’t be surprising.
The riots seem quite multiracial in New York, but it was hard to get a breakdown. There were a lot of Blacks but also some Whites.
There were many Whites in the Washington DC riots but also a lot of Blacks of course.
Rioters in Seattle and Portland tended to be young antifa type Whites.
Chicago seemed to have a lot of Blacks, but there were also Whites mixed in.
The truth is that these for the most part are multiracial riots. Yes, many rioters are Black, but there are quite a few young White and Hispanic men in the mix.
I will say one thing. It seems like most of the looting is being done by Blacks. I did see a few Whites looting in Minneapolis and New York. Hispanics are known to loot but I’m not aware of how many of them did. In the Rodney King riots, the looters were heavily Black and Hispanics. However, when they moved up to Hollywood, a lot of more or less regular young White men got in on, targeting high end items.
I was happy to see the stores of the rich looted and smashed up though. That’s who they should be targeting.
Looting does tend to be a Black thing. Hispanics don’t seem to loot as much, and it seems like a lot of Whites, even White rioters, are averse to looting. A White rioter will smash stuff up, set a building on fire but then refuse to loot other buildings. Not sure why that is, but I think Antifa doesn’t like looting. Plus a lot of Whites are afraid to steal or perhaps they even consider it morally wrong.
Alpha Unit: And leftwing people are not delusional for thinking there are rightwing people out there seeking to capitalize on these protests.
Correct, but I am seeing little evidence of this.
Three Bugaloo Boys went to a demonstration and tried to turn it violent, but the crowd did not buy it. Further, the Bugaloos are a mixed bag. Yes most are rightwingers, often racist ones. However, there are other Bugaloos who are on the left and a number of them are antiracists. So the Bugaloos are just a group of “tear it down” folks who are insurrectionists against the government for a variety of reasons – right, left, racist and antiracist. The only thing that unites them is the desire to smash it up and take down the state.
I am watching leftwing subs on Reddit, and all they ever say about these riots is that it’s White Nationalist racists and undercover police instigators who are setting off the riots or even doing most of the damage. I went to the page of one liberal, and he said all the destruction was being done by White nationalists and undercover police instigators. He also said Russia was behind the riots.
Black people don’t want to think it’s their people rioting. That’s a typical human Dindu reaction. They are correct, the Black rioters are having a significant amount of White and Hispanic help. That’s the better response. Pawning it off on cops and rightwing racists ain’t gonna cut it.
Leftwingers and antiracists object to the notion that these are leftwing antiracist riots. Once again this is the typical human Dindu reaction. Dindu reactions tend to be more of a human response than a Black cope. People don’t like to take responsibility when their group does bad things, so they blame it all on outsiders or better yet, their enemies.
Rightwingers are notorious for this but as we can see, leftwingers and antiracists are not immune to it either. The defenses are Denial and Projection. “Blaming other people” isn’t just something pathological people do. Most people go through life blaming other people in some way or other. I don’t object to blaming other people, but I think the less you do it, the better.
But that’s exactly what they are – these are indeed leftwing antiracist riots. And antifa-type and BLM (neither of which are organizations) elements do appear significant. The young Whites may be apolitical, or if they vote at all, they vote Bernie. The Blacks and Hispanics just vote straight Democratic if they even vote at all. I think a lot of these rioters are apolitical in the sense that they are outside of organized politics and might not even vote.
I admit I am a bit of an antisemite. Not too much of one! Nazis are evil! But just a bit. You know those recipes that call for a “pinch” of this or that? I mean not 1/4 or even 1/8 of teaspoon. Less than even that! Well, that’s how antisemitic I am. Just a pinch.
Actually I think all Gentiles should be. Judeophilia is stupid as blind love for any race is stupid. No race should be worshiped blindly. We are all humans, and all human races are a bit evil or have that potential simply on account of being made up of humans, as humans are at least a bit evil, and that’s on a good day!
And as a “pinch antisemite” type, I have chosen to worship Saint Henry Ford as one of my antisemite secular Gods. Feel free to hate on me for that. I’m used to it.
Saint Ford was not perfect. No saint is, not even Saint Jesus. St. Ford’s scriptures, the long-running, Hadith-like commentaries in the great Dearborn Independent, are actually excellent and hardly antisemitic at all. They’re just one endless cynical and exasperated lament at the typically terrible Jewish behavior of the times. Check them out if you can dig them up. Fascinating stuff.
His greatest scriptural document, The International Jew, was excellent and was not even particularly antisemitic at all. In fact as antisemitic documents go, it’s one of the mildest and least offensive ones ever written. Antisemitic speech tends to be nasty as Hell, often murderous and not uncommonly genocidal. TIJ is neither. Further, it was written with a kind heart in the spirit of racial peace. It was actually an early antiracist tract!
He was mostly just exasperated with Jews for being such separatist, selfish, and Other-hating jerks. TIJ was a call for Jews to knock off the Gentile-hatred and especially the Jewish Ethnic Wars against the Gentiles, which were quite hot at that time.
At one point in the book his exasperation is clear. He points out that he never supported one pogrom and thought that pogroms were sickening and horrible. He called for the Jews to stop fighting us and smoke the peace pipe. He said Jews were too busy being Jews to be real Americans, and that was sad and frustrating.
Quit being Jews and start being Americans instead was the message. In other words, TIJ and even The Dearborn Independent are just a couple more works in favor of the assimilation of the Jews, which is generally a good and even progressive thing anyway. Unassimilated Jews don’t act real great. Face it.
Come, Jews! Come join us Gentiles in building a better America!
– Henry Ford, The International Jew
What a beautiful, albeit exasperated, remark! Of course the Jews didn’t listen, and I’m still not sure if they have joined the rest of us here in the US or not. I wish to believe they have, but I do wonder.
But even this scripture, TIJ, is flawed. Ford believed in the Czarist forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a hate book that led to the murders of a lot of Jews. That book is just stupid.
And no, Jews don’t “act like that anyway even if it’s a forgery.” Bad argument. It’s just a stupid and wrong bit of hate speech and hate lie that killed a lot of people. Nasty stuff. Well, St. Ford ignorantly believed the Protocols. Dumb, almost criminal stupidity. His later meetings with Hitler were downright stupid too and even ignorantly wicked. He accepted the genocidal maniac Hitler’s praises, and that was more criminal idiocy.
He paid for it when the Jews tried to murder him by running his car off the road in the mid- 1930’s. Most people don’t know this and the Jews will scream, deny it and call you an antisemite for bringing it up, but oh yeah, it definitely happened all right. He almost died. He eased up on the Jews after, which I guess was smart.
My former Jewish girlfriend and I really split on the subject on St. Ford. Usually she agreed with everything I said about Jews and then one-upped me to go beyond that. Jews are profoundly antisemitic themselves as the sin is currently defined.
I defended St. Ford and boy was she mad. She really hated him. She grew up in Detroit and St. Ford was Antisemite Enemy #1 to Detroit Jews.
We had a fun relationship. During the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1996, I openly supported Hezbollah and cheered them on right to her face. She would just laugh, tell me to shut up, and defend Israel. I’d say, “Go Hezbollah go!”, she’d laugh and retort and the match was on. Good times!
Once I asked her why she was defending Israel, and she thought a bit and said, “I ‘m defending my people.” Great answer. Nothing wrong with defending or supporting your people. Racial self-haters are rather disgusting to me. I even with Blacks to take pride in themselves.
Sure, Blacks are fucked up. Duh. But are you, a good Black person, fucked up too? Well, of course not. Then take pride in being a Great Black Man or Woman, whichever it is. Pride is always admirable and groveling is always disgusting, no matter the race or ethnicity.
Assassination of a Computer Programmer Working on Federal Voting Machines in the 2004 Election (2004)
Bush stole both elections that he won, the first by fraud and other shenanigans in Florida in 2000, the second by hacking the voting machines in 2004. John Kerry’s wife, heir to the Heinz fortune, accused the Republicans of stealing the election and causing her husband to lose.
One of the main places they did this was in Ohio where the reactionary Black Secretary of State Ken Blackstone diverted ballots to a basement of a bank in Knoxville, Tennessee, where they are altered and then sent back to Ohio, allowing Bush to win Ohio. So Ken Blackstone stole Ohio that year for Bush by election fraud.
Furthermore, I am convinced that Bush and Karl Rove were in on the hacking and knew about it. Rove was involved in another hacking plot in 2008 where he once again tried to steal Ohio by hacking the voting machines. But the operation was not successful and Obama ended up winning the state.
Anyway, a computer programmer in Florida made allegations that the elections were hacked so Bush could win. Everybody blew him off as a kook, but he was right. I guess he got on Bush’s nerves though because Bush’s thugs murdered him by breaking into his hotel bathroom and killing him in his bathtub. They then made it look like a suicide.
This happens a lot in government sponsored assassinations. The government has someone murdered and then they fake the scene to make it look like he committed suicide. It’s called getting suicided.
To add insult to injury, before he was murdered, Bush’s thugs killed his dog at the motel he was staying at. I guess that was a message to shut up or else, but he kept talking, and they followed through on the obvious threatened murder plot. I can’t recall his name now, but he was fairly famous at the time. If anyone knows his name, please give it to me.
The Assassination of Democratic Congressman Paul Wellstone (2002)
Or you get Wellstoned, the treatment given to progressive Minnesota Congressman Paul Wellstone,who was murdered by during the Bush Administration by Dick Cheney’s Deep State thugs who tampered with his airplane, causing it to crash. Former California senator Barbara Boxer admitted to people privately that she thinks Cheney had Wellstone killed.
This crap goes on more often than you think. We don’t have any kind of democracy here as long as the Deep State and the Oligarchs run things.
Saw this old Alpha post she wrote seven years ago. Seven years! Jesus. We’re practically a married couple by now! No wait! She’s already married and she’s against bigamy. Plus her husband is a big, badass former Marine named “Big Dog,” if you can believe that.
He’s White. A White guy with some sort of Black chick fetish. And Alpha’s got a “White guy her age fetish.” Whoops, don’t say that!
Panmixia baby! I’m sure Jason approves.
If this site is anything, it’s pro-Black-White integration. And it’s run by a White guy and a Black woman, just to show what integrationists we are. Yay! We are hardcore integrationists here and I personally think Blacks should spend more time with Whites and vice versa provided the Black person is not from that half of the Blacks that are those people, you know.
Alpha’s probably one of the most un-ghetto Blacks I’ve ever encountered. She’s the polar opposite of a ghetto Black. She acts Whiter than I do! She called me up once and she sounded like a librarian. If she’s anything, she’s unfailingly, Southern Belle, graciously proper polite. Which I guess makes sense because she grew up in Mississippi! And I just thought of that!
From what Alpha has told me about him, I really like her husband. He’s seriously chill, and he actually understands women. He’s an ultra-laid back, don’t give a damn, reserved (actually just properly chilled I think), brief, pithy words of wisdom type guy from Polar Bear’s state.
And he totally doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks about his Black wife. I like that. This guy knows how to not be bothered. I like that. I’ve also heard that he knows how to be bothered if it must come to that, and I would not want to tangle with the guy.
Anyway, to show my gratitude for all the free work Alpha does on this site,* I will repost this post from probably way back when when we first met, which is another story altogether!
*She does all the categories!
St. Peter, don’t you call me, ’cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store.
Nobody’s sure who wrote “Sixteen Tons.” People usually attribute the song to Merle Travis, who recorded it in 1946. A singer-songwriter named George S. Davis claimed he wrote it during the Depression. I don’t know if there’s any way to settle that question. But the couplet above sums up what it felt like sometimes to be a coal miner in nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century America.
Before labor reforms were enacted and enforced, the life of a coal miner, like that of sharecroppers and other laborers, was often just one step above slavery.
Coal mining was vital for the widespread industrialization that got underway in the nineteenth century. Before then, there were two types of coal mines: drift mines and bell pits. They were small-scale operations that yielded coal for homes and local industry. But the growing demand for coal due to industrialization made coal mines deeper and mining more dangerous. And there was a lot of money in consideration.
Mining operations were in remote, rugged areas, naturally, so mine owners had to provide housing for their workers. In fact they provided just about everything for their workers, typically. This was because paying the miners posed a problem.
You have to remember that this was before there was a national currency in the United States. Neither was there a sufficient supply of coins. Mining operations were far from banks and stores. Mining companies saw great advantage in the closed economy that resulted from creating the company store and paying in scrip.
Whatever a miner needed he could buy – and often had to buy – at the company store. The tools of his trade he bought there, along with whatever other goods he and his family needed. If the company store didn’t have it in stock, he had to do without it. The company store could charge whatever the mine owner wanted. If wages were increased, the company store could increase prices to make up for it.
Some companies paid exclusively in scrip. Others used scrip as a form of credit that miners could use between paydays. In this case, the scrip amount would be charged against the miner’s payroll account and deducted from his next pay. Some companies let their workers trade scrip for cash, but not always at full value. Some paid as little as 50 cents on the dollar; others paid as much as 85 cents per dollar.
Not only were the supplies for the miner and his family deducted from his pay, but so were his rent for company housing, utilities, fuel coal, and doctor’s fees.
Mining companies were creative in withholding as much money as they could from workers. One practice they engaged in was cribbing. A coal miner was paid per ton of coal that he brought up. Each car brought from the mines was supposed to hold a specific amount of coal – 2,000 pounds, for instance.
But companies would alter cars to hold more coal than the specified amount, so a miner could be paid for 2,000 pounds when he might have actually brought up 2,500. Workers were also docked pay for slate and rock mixed in with coal. How much to dock was left at the discretion of the checkweighman – a company man, of course.
On payday, a miner was given a pay envelope with all the check-off deductions listed and any balance due him inside. Often the envelope contained a few pennies, or nothing at all.
The United Mine Workers, a merger of two older labor groups, was founded in 1890.
This organization – whose first convention barred discrimination based on race, religion, or national origin – set about to make mining safer, to gain miners’ independence from the company store, and to secure collective bargaining rights. Among its specific goals:
a salary commensurate with dangerous work conditions
an 8-hour workday
payment in legal tender, not company scrip
properly working scales: improper or outright dishonest weighing was a big concern for miners
enforcement of safety laws and better ventilation and drainage in mines
an end to child labor: “breaker boys” as young as 8 would remove impurities from coal by hand – hazardous work that led to accidental amputations and sometimes death
an unbiased police force: mine operators owned all the houses in a company town and controlled the police force, which would evict miners or arrest them without proper cause
the right to strike
The UMW was able to secure an 8-hour workday for coal miners in 1898. During its first ten years the UMW successfully organized coal miners in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. It finally achieved some recognition in West Virginia in 1902. It spent the next several decades organizing strikes – some of which ended up being deadly – and getting involved, controversially, in politics to further its goals.
Labor contracts and legislation eventually outlawed the use of company scrip. World War II marked a turning point for scrip, and by the end of the 1950’s almost all coal mining operations were paying their workers in legal tender.
What a long haul.
English has had a genocidal affect on the other languages spoken here, but many non-English languages still survive and some are quite thriving.
Pennsylvania Dutch is still quite alive with 300,000 native speakers. I think is is just a dialect of Rhenish German. It’s actually two separate languages and they can’t understand each other.
There are many other languages in the US that have been taken out by English. Most of the Indian languages spoken here have been driven extinct or moribund by English. A few like Cherokee, Sioux, Navajo, Mohawk, Pueblo, some Alaskan languages, a couple of Indian languages of the US South, are still doing well.
Most of the others are in bad to very bad shape, often moribund with only 10 or fewer speakers, often elderly. Many others are extinct. However, quite a few of these languages have had a small number of middle aged to elderly speakers for the last 25 years, so the situation is somewhat stable at least at the moment.
Almost all Indian languages are not being learned by children. But there are still children being raised speaking Cherokee, Navajo, Pueblo, Mohawk, and some Alaskan and Southern US Indian languages. Navajo is so difficult that when Navajo children show up at school, they still have problems with Navajo. They often don’t get the language in full until they are twelve.
However, there are revitalization efforts going on with many to most Indian languages, with varying amounts of success. Some are developing quite competent native speakers, often young people who learn the language starting at 18-20. I know that Wikchamni Yokuts has a new native speaker, a 23 year old man who learned from an old who is a native speaker. In California, there is a master apprentice program going on along these lines.
There are a number of preschool programs where elders try to teach the languages to young children. I am not sure how well they are working. There are problems with funding, orthographies and mostly apathy that are getting in the way of a lot of these programs.
There are many semi-speakers. For instance in the tribe I worked with, many of the Indians knew at least a few words, and some of the leadership knew quite a few words. But they could hardly make a sentence.
Eskimo-Aleut languages are still widely spoken in Alaska. I know that Inuktitut is still spoken, and there are children being raised in the language. Aleut is in poor shape.
Hawaiian was almost driven extinct but it was revived with a revitalization program. I understand that the language still has problems. I believe that there are Hawaiian medium schools that you can send your child to. There may be only ~10,000 fluent speakers but there are many more second language speakers with varying fluency.
There are actually some European based languages and creoles spoken in the US. A noncontroversial one is Gullah, spoken on the islands of South Carolina. There may be less than 5,000 speakers, but the situation has been stable for 30-35 years. Speakers are all Black. It is an English creole and it is not intelligible with English at all.
There is at least one form of French creole spoken in Louisiana. There is also an archaic form of French Proper called Continental French that resembles French from 1800. It has 2,000 speakers. Louisiana French Creole still has ~50,000 speakers. People worry about it but it has been stable for a long time. Many of the speakers are Black.
Texas German is really just a dialect of German spoken in Texas. There are only a few elderly speakers left.
There are a few Croatian languages spoken in the US that have diverged dramatically from the languages back home that they are now different languages. The status of these languages vary. Some are in good shape and others are almost dead. One of these is called Strawberry Hill Gorski Kotar Kaikavian spoken in Missouri. It is absolutely a full separate language and is no longer intelligible with the Gorski Kotar Kaikavian spoken back home.
There are other European languages spoken in the US, but they are not separate from those back home. Most are going out.
There are many Mandarin and especially Cantonese speakers in the US.
There are many Korean speakers in the US, especially in California.
There are a fair number of Japanese speakers in the US, mostly in California.
There are many speakers of Khmer, Lao, Hmong, and Vietnamese in the US. Most are in California but there are Hmong speakers in Minnesota also.
There are quite a few speakers of Arabic languages in the US. Yemeni, Syrian, and Palestinian Arabic are widely spoken. There are many in New York City, Michigan and California.
There are also some Assyrian speakers in the US and there are still children being raised in Assyrian. Most are in California.
There are quite a few Punjabi and Gujarati speakers in the US now. We have many Punjabi speakers in my city.
There are quite a few Urdu speakers here. Most of all of these speakers are in California.
Obviously there are many Spanish speakers in the US. English is definitely not taking out Spanish. They are mostly in the Southwest, Florida, and New York City, but they are spreading out all across the country now.
There are a few Portuguese speakers in the US. All also speak English. They are mostly in California but some are back east around Massachusetts.
The Sicilian Italian spoken in the US by Italian immigrants is still spoken fairly widely to this day. It has diverged so much from the Sicilian back home that when they go back to Sicily, they are not understood. This is mostly spoken in large cities back east.
There are quite a few Armenian speakers in the US and children are still being raised in Armenian. Most are in California.
There are some Persian speakers in the US, but not a lot. Most of these are in California too.
All of these languages are the same languages as spoken back home.
Right. The Dayton mass shooter was not the first “antifa mass shooter,” as the drooling, unhinged nutcase Andy Ngo insists. I don’t think this idiot deserved to get beat up by antifa, but he’s definitely a full-blown nutball.
Yes, Connor Betts was associated with the far left in the US and with the antifa portion of it with all of the behaviors that go along with that. He hated cops and fascists. His random shooting of nine innocent people outside of a bar in Dayton, Ohio had zero political overtones. “Antifa” does not advocate taking guns and killing innocent workers and other citizens. It advocates nothing of the kind.
Obviously mass shooters will often have a political ideology, especially in our ideologically blighted times. After all, they are adult Americans and nowadays most adult Americans have some sort of politics. In a nonpolitical shooting, a shooter may have any politics whatsoever from Far Left to Far Right and everything in between, and none of it matters one whit. That is because the shooting had nothing to do with politics, so the shooter’s politics is absolutely irrelevant.
By the way, the sex life of the shooter is also irrelevant. The Gilroy and El Paso shooters didn’t seem to do well with women, but neither was complaining about it, and there’s no evidence that misogyny or incel ideology had anything to do with the shooting. Believe it or not, any man can go on a mass shooting, from virgin to playboy. As long as the shooting has nothing to do with his sex life, obviously his sex life is utterly irrelevant.
The Dayton shooter did quite well with women, but he also had some serious anger towards them. Yet the shooting, which fired into a mixed crowd and killed more men than women in addition to killing his beloved best sister, was clearly not motivated by misogyny.
Instead, Connor Betts appears to have been suffering from sort of psychotic disorder, possibly Schizoaffective Disorder or Bipolar 1 Disorder. We know that he had been hearing external voices from an early age.
Politics in this country is getting seriously retarded with each passing day, and I blame both the Right and the Left for that because nowadays the Right and Left are equally deranged ideologically.
They don’t have much in common with each other except for a lack of connection with the real world and a tendency to lie, make stuff up, hallucinate, and engage in wild hyperbole and conspiracy mongering. Neither the Right nor the Left is as bad as the demonizers on the other side make them out to be.
Connecticut, West Virginia, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, Idaho, Nebraska, and Alaska have at least one thing in common: each has a Panhandle (WV has two). The Nebraska Panhandle is the westernmost part of Nebraska, where the prairie turns into rocky mesas, buttes, and pillars, such as Chimney Rock. It’s where the Midwest becomes the West.
Cattle outnumber people by about three to one in Nebraska. While Eastern Nebraska has excellent cropland for corn, the rest of the state is abundant with grassland for cattle grazing. In the semi-arid Panhandle, cattle ranching dominates. That means Rocky Mountain Oysters are a celebrated delicacy.
This past April the Sidney Shooting Park held its 8th Annual Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry and Fundraiser at the Cheyenne County Fairgrounds west of Sidney, Nebraska. At the Silver Dollar Bar and Grill, also in Sidney, you can stop in for cold beer, onion rings, and Rocky Mountain Oysters – described by one satisfied customer as hot, fresh, and tender.
They might have been hot, fresh, and tender, but you and I know that there aren’t any oyster reefs in Nebraska. These Oysters are bull testicles – or, more accurately, calf testicles. In spring or early summer, ranchers dehorn and castrate bull calves that they won’t be using as breeding stock. They call these non-breeding stock steers. The males that keep their testicles and are later used as breeding stock they call bulls. The main purpose of castration is to calm their tempers, says Dr. Jake Geis, cattle rancher and veterinarian.
Simply put, bulls like to fight. They fight to establish dominance and even after they settle the hierarchy, they fight to re-assert dominance. Dr. Geis says that he’s worked on bulls that have been banged up fighting each other; sometimes the animal is so badly injured that a rancher has no choice but to put it down. Breeding bulls are essential so the problem can’t be entirely avoided, but castrating the non-breeding animals reduces the number of bulls from half the calf crop to three or four.
Also, bulls are more aggressive toward people than steers. Castrating bulls makes them mellower and safer to work with. A herdsman could be seriously injured or killed by a bull while loading or unloading them via trailers.
Another problem, says Dr. Geis, is that when bull calves reach puberty, they want to start breeding. Young females, or heifers, on the other hand, aren’t ready to breed. They can get pregnant but they can’t yet safely deliver and raise a calf. Castration eliminates this problem.
Arguably the most important reason for castrating bull calves is that Americans prefer the taste of steer meat to that of bull meat. The hormone profile of steers with their reduced testosterone changes the flavor of the meat. Dr. Geis says that not all cultures share this preference. He mentions that in Italian culture bull meat is preferred. This means they raise the bulls to harvest weight but have to manage all the problems with aggressiveness and fighting.
With a pair of organs coming off each calf, ranchers could easily end up with scores of them in a day’s work. The dogs get their share before the ranchers, herdsmen, and their families cook the rest just as they would any other part of the animal. The same as cattlemen have done for centuries all over the world.
When they’re not castrating bulls, beef cattle herdsmen are doing various other things with cattle such as feeding, giving vaccinations, tagging or branding, trimming hooves, assisting with births, performing artificial insemination, loading animals onto trailers, driving feed trucks, maintaining pastures, mending fences, and just about anything else that needs to be done on the ranch or feedlot.
Zamfir: You say Trump “stole the election with computers”. Really? What are you talking about here? I’ve looked into these bizarre claims and never found any proper evidence of anything.
They’re not bizarre. Republicans been doing it since 2000 because the public doesn’t really support them anymore, so like all capitalist, ruling class, and oligarchic political parties, they have to lie, cheat, and steal to stay in power. See the Latin American Right for example. The Republicans been stealing them with computers, especially since 2004. Bush out and out stole the 2004 election.
We can tell they were stolen by how the exit polls went radically off compared to the actual vote. Exit polls are the gold standard of politics for over 50 years now. They always reliably track with results. Out of 50 states, polls will be off in maybe two states, no more. They’ve been going off, often by a lot and almost always in a Republican direction, since 2000. This is when the Republicans started stealing them with the computers. That’s why the Republicans put the computers in in the first place – to steal elections.
In Michigan, all polls for weeks before the election – hundreds of them – were all off, including the exit polls. That can’t possibly happen. So Michigan was stolen. They refused to count 70,000 votes in Detroit for no reason except that they are nigger votes I guess. And many fraudulent votes for Republicans were found even before the recount. A recount was never done because all Michigan politicians opposed it. Why did they oppose a recount?
Wisconsin was also stolen. Exit polls were off but always in Republican districts. There was no real recount in Wisconsin. There was only a fake recount, and some precincts were incredibly shady to where it appeared to witnesses that they were seeing actual fraud taking place.
Also 30,000 fraudulent votes for Republicans were found before the recount even started. The vote in Milwaukee was not possible, and I think they never even recounted it. Write-in’s supported Clinton and those lean rightwing. All exit polls showed Clinton winning. Exit polls were perfect in all precincts that had hand counted ballots but went off in all precincts that had computer counted ballots.
50,000 fraudulent votes were found in Pennsylvania before the recount even started. Write in votes supported Clinton and those tend to lean conservative. There was no recount in Pennsylvania because the DNC governor fought it in court! All exit polls showed Clinton winning.
The vote in Florida was not possible. 70% of votes were write-in’s and they supported Clinton by a decent margin. For Trump to win, a huge number of voters on election day would have had to support Trump. That number was so large as to be statistically impossible. Republican turnout was not elevated on election day anyway. As many Democrats came out as Republicans.
Trump started saying the election was going to be stolen because he was going to steal it himself. He always accuses his opponents of doing what he does or is going to do. This is called projection but it is particularly prominent in this man. It is considered to be a primitive and immature defense that kids use a lot. Yes, adults use it a lot, but people who project all the time are notably unhealthy. It is particularly prominent in personality disorders.
Also Trump, Conaway, and Guiliani became unusually calm about Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania a few days before the election. All polls were pro-Clinton. Manafort said he had just talked to the Russians, and they said not to worry about Michigan. I assume the Russians may have been in on the vote-hacking. Vote-hacking in this last election was never investigated by the FBI or by anyone.
I will add that sleazy Democrats do this too. Hillary had to have stolen a number of primaries. There is no way for the exit polls to go off like that, and the DNC laid down the law that Sanders could not win. Democrats don’t seem to want to fix these machines either I guess because they use them to steal elections themselves.
Republicans are fanatically opposed to all recounts of elections and to fixing the damned voting machines. They must know that the way they are set up now, they are hackable.
Really we need to get rid of them altogether and go back to hand counted ballots. States that hand count ballots never see their exit polls go off.
Updated June 15, 2018. Note: I have been accused of “plagiarizing” or “stealing” all of this information by members of the most execrable subreddit on Reddit since r/deadchildren. The absurdity of repeating rumors or speculations of others as “plagiarizing” (!) or “stealing,” is bizarre. Plagiarization is the word for word copying of something from somewhere else. Of course I don’t do that. “Stealing” is laughable. Did these people copyright or patent these speculations? Perhaps they should sue me for violating their copyrights or patents. Authors, especially investigative reporters, receive their information from many places. That said, I have never read or listened to any of the sources I supposedly stole from here. In fact, I had never even heard of them.
freska eksa writes: Uh….. there was a member of this very forum who posted this “conversation with a friend in LE” or something of that nature. That post would have happened well before the Lindsey blog post. He stole that from this subreddit.
Perhaps this is from the same source, but I have not even read that horrible Reddit in three months, and I never read anything like that there. Our source here was a woman, a forum member who reported this to us. I am not sure where they got the information. ProtectiveIonCannon wrote everything below:
ProtectiveIonCannon writes: He absolutely still visits this sub. Funny enough that was also a thread where Anna Williams (or someone claiming to be) commented in
Basically just ripped this post and took some points of what we speculate could be the issue like contaminated DNA, chain of custody, etc.
I never read that post which is from 16 days ago, and I still have not read it. As I said, I quit reading that Reddit three months ago. I have no idea what is in there. Our source was from a private IM conversation with one of our best sources on Facebook, a person who lives in Delphi. How can I have ripped that post if I never read it? Now granted, we may be repeating the same rumors from different sources. My article does not mention contaminated DNA. I have never read anything on their diabolical little Reddit where they speculated about chain of custody. As I said, our source who suggested a chain of custody issue was a man, a forum member who reported this to us in our forum.
ProtectiveIonCannon writes: It’s also pretty funny how GH decided to do a video on a cold case from 2012 and comparing similarities of it to Delphi within a week of this post.
I am very familiar with this case, and I have written about it many times on this site. In fact, I tipped LE about a suspect in this case, and an ISP detective asked me to write up a report for them. I wrote up a 15 page report on my suspect and gave it to Indiana State Police. I have never seen Gray Hughes’ video from a week ago. I had no idea it existed. I mostly refuse to watch to watch his videos because he’s an awful human being like the maggots on that Reddit sub, and I despise him.
ProtectiveIonCannon writes: …if he mentions the super unknown similarities like them being within a few miles of a meat processing plant in his follow up video I’m calling shenanigans.
Thing is, I have already written about the Evansdale case and the Delphi case and the similarities. In fact, that was the subject of the paper I prepared for ISP in Spring 201 7. One of the similarities I wrote about was the closeness of hog plants to each crime. I wrote that piece about a year ago on this site.
ProtectiveIonCannon writes: I think when this is solved we’ll find some rumors to be true. I think Gray Hughes, Greeno & Stroup, and RL all have secret motives for everything they report in this case.
Hilarious. I guess my secret motive must be to ruin my life because that’s all that happened to me since I started writing about this. There is no secret motive. I started writing about the crime early on, got obsessed with it like I do about some things, and soon my articles became the top links on Google search about the case, so I decided to capitalize on that publicity of course. The site is not monetized, so traffic here is irrelevant. Yes, writing about this case brought in money from donations and forum memberships, and that has also been a motive. I don’t write for free. This is how I make part of my income. That said, this case does not bring in much money any more. Last year it brought in a lot more. I had a group IM on Facebook with just me and 10-15 women, set up by a female friend of mine. I got my information from there, particularly from one woman who lives in Delphi and is a superb source. More information came from a private IM on Facebook with another woman who was in that group. It was there that I was told the Delmar Apartments story, and the three person murder team and drug motive theories. This woman also resides in Delphi and has their ear to the ground in a superb way. In addition, two of the rumors below came from members of my forum, one from a woman and another from a man.
First Delphi Murders post in a long time (almost six months), but it’s a good one. I hardly post these anymore because half the world beats the Hell out of me every time I write one of these posts. After a while, you don’t want to write anymore.
Also, our sources are getting better. Now we are getting information from LE, people very close to the families, the friends and associates of a major suspect, in addition to people who have an ear very close to the best rumors floating around the depths of the Delphi Underworld. We are getting a lot better about sorting out the crap rumors from the good rumors. Do you have any idea how many rumors we don’t print? You have no idea. We kill so much stuff because we don’t think it’s high enough quality or sourced well enough. We toss far more material than we run here.
The Latest from Law Enforcement Sources
Although our group does have LE sources from time to time, mostly we don’t get much if any information out of them. We received a number of tips sourced somehow or other from LE early in the investigation, however, I must warn you that even some of those LE-sourced tips went bad on us. I even had one in a screenshot of a man talking to a LE friend of his discussing the crime scene. Sound pretty good, right? Forget it. Bad tip. You really have to take everything at face value in this case. We have had so many rumors go bad on us
If you would like though, here is our latest information from an LE source. We asked him about the case, and he said he had many friends who were working on it but, he couldn’t tell us much obviously. However, he did say a couple of things. Q: Do you think the case will ever be solved? A: They think they already know who killed those girls, but the investigation got screwed up so badly in the early days after the murders that there is a worry that they may never be able to get a conviction in the case.
Ok, so there was some sort of mangling / trashing / mishandling of evidence. I am thinking a chain of custody issue. Q: Can you tell me how the girls were killed? A: You really don’t want to know.
Although I would hate to be vindicated for something like that, I am afraid that some of the more gruesome rumors we repeated on here and were so roundly pummeled over may well be. I shudder to think. Source: A member of our forum.
About My Favorite Suspect
I would like to make one official statement about this man, who I still will not name. I am 100% convinced that this man played some sort of a role in these murders. However, I am not sure if he was at the bridge that day much less if he killed those girls. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t. At one time I definitely thought he was at the bridge that day, but now I am not so sure anymore. And on top of that he may be 100% innocent.
What I mean when I said he played a role in the killings is that he was either one or more of the following:
Present at the bridge that day and killed those girls.
Present at the bridge that day and somehow assisted in the murder of those girls.
Participated in the planning of the crime beforehand.
Had knowledge of the planning and planned execution of the crime beforehand but was not involved himself. However, he did not go to LE with this information. I will point out that this is 100% legal. Even if you hear a crime is about to be committed, you don’t have to contact the police or warn the public.
Completely innocent of involvement in these murders, but heard about them in detail only a few days after the crime. This is also 100% legal. If you hear the details of a crime after it was committed, you are not obligated to contact LE or the public with this information.
The Mystery of the Delmar Apartment Complex
The reason I state 1-5 points above is that we have just received information that my suspect was present in an apartment complex in Delphi called the Delmar Apartments only three days after the crime. He was in an apartment with two other men, both also members of the Delphi Underworld. The phrase Delphi Underworld was used by my source in talking about these men, so I am repeating her use of the phrase. They were drinking and talking loudly about this crime, how it was done, what went wrong, what could have been done differently, etc. They seemed to have intimate details of the crime that had not been released at the time and still have not been released. The only way they could have know this is if they were in on the planning or commission of the murders or if someone told them the details of the crime soon after it was committed.
A woman next door heard them and called the police. Officers came to the complex. We don’t know what happened, but I assume there is a police report on this, and someone might want to go find it. In addition, this woman has some sort of a transcription of what those men were talking about next door to her that night. How she got any sort of transcription of that conversation, I have no idea. However, she’s gone silent, and she won’t give up the transcription either. She’s terrified like everyone else.
These apartments were raided shortly afterwards by LE. A man who was thought to be The Bridge Man himself was seen two times in the laundry room of the complex. Both times residents called police, but by the time they arrived, he was gone.
Look back in the papers to see that LE did indeed raid those apartments around in July, and a number of arrests were made. Little is known about the raid, but at the time people thought it was connected to the murders. The complex was raided again in December 2017 and another several men were taken away. That apartment complex is a known hot spot for the local drug culture and all sorts of misdeeds.

The Worst Rumor of Them All, That Not Only Won’t Die But Keeps Getting Stronger, or Does It?
Truthfully, I have always hated that damned rumor about one of the girls, most recently Libby, being pregnant. I really don’t care if one of those girls was pregnant or not. I’m not a Victorian, prude, or Puritan like my critics.
But we got so beaten up over that rumor that I was more than happy to bury it recently based on some evidence we received on the condition of the bodies post-mortem. Yes, we have contacts who saw the bodies post-mortem after they were removed from the scene.
So it is with great despair that I must tell that this horrible rumor is rearing its awful head again. I would love to have not even printed this, but the problem is that the source of this rumor keeps creeping closer and closer to the families. At this point, we are about one ear away from one of the families.
One of the members of these girls’ families, and I will not say who (though you know them well), is apparently stating that Libby German was indeed in the very early phase of pregnancy. What what we have heard is that Anna Williams knew about this because Abby told her. The Germans, in particular Becky German, had no idea of Libby’s condition. However, Becky German discovered that Libby was pregnant in going through her things after her death. People say that Becky is denying Libby’s pregnancy because she is in denial about it.
You might wonder why nothing official has never come out, but these things often do not come out until later, perhaps at trial.
On the other hand, another source, a member of our forum, states that she is closer to the families than one ear away (that is, he is in direct contact with the families, specifically the Germans), and he says he can confirm that neither girl was pregnant.
Another source on our forum said he spoke to Carrie, Libby’s mother. Carrie states that Libby was absolutely not pregnant.
We are hearing three different well-sourced rumors stating the opposite things here. However, two of the negative rumors are sourced directly to family members, and the one positive rumor is still an ear away from a family member. None of this makes much sense, but most things about this case don’t make much sense. The longer you study this case, the less sense things seem to make. I will continue my efforts to clear up this matter further if that is even possible. In the meantime, this rumor will now be downgraded to Unconfirmed, Possibly Untrue status. Whew! I am so happy for that!
More Awful Rumors about the Murders Themselves, Better Sourced Now
Speaking of sensationalism! You want some new dirt? Here goes:
The girls were gagged, apparently with duct tape, at some point. That may be why no one heard them. Source:A relative of a family member.
At least Libby had some sort of solution poured over her body to kill DNA. Bleach? I don’t know what it is. It may have been poured on Abby too. Source:Someone close to a very well known family member.
Some sort of object was jammed into poor Libby’s vagina somehow or other, either before or after death. I don’t know what this is, but this could be bringing us back around to the horrible stakes and sticks in girls’ bodies rumors that I got so pummeled for. I don’t know if it was a stake or a stick. All I know is it was some object. The source referenced the DNA-killing solution and “whatever object that was that he stuck up her.” Source:Someone close to a very well known family member.
A New Theory of the Murders: Three Killers – An Older Man, a Younger Man, and a Young Woman
There is a new theory going around Delphi that says there were three killers who killed the girls:
A man in his 50’s, the Bridge Man. A major local criminal. He controlled meth manufacture at the bridge, and he controlled a lot of the meth being sold around Delphi. At the time of the murders, this man had small children, a niece and nephew, living with him. They were taken away from him at one point and sent to grandparents. This man was the children’s uncle. Both of the children told their grandparents that their uncle killed those girls. When the girl saw the photo of the Bridge Man, she said, “Look! That man is wearing Uncle X’s jacket!” Although this man is a major meth dealer in the area, he never seems to go to jail. He seems to have a cooperative relationship with LE and may well be a confidential informant. He has given up many of his associates to LE, and it is thought that he stays out of jail, and they let him deal as long as he keeps giving people up.
A woman in her 20’s, this man’s daughter. Appears to be heavily into the local drug/meth scene from the looks of her. She has a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder.
A man in his 30’s, a very well-known local. This man confessed to the murders to a male friend a few days after the crime. He also had a huge scratch across his neck the day after the crime. His confession was reported to LE. Last I heard they wanted his DNA, but he was refusing to give it. This man was the boyfriend of the woman above. This man’s aunt openly states that he killed those girls. I know this man well and I would diagnose him as a psychopath. He also has prominent narcissistic tendencies.
As the story goes, Bridge Man did indeed round up the girls and walk them across the creek. On the other side were the younger couple. The young man killed both of the girls. The young woman then inflicted some gratuitous overkill-type injuries on Libby.
These rumors are coming directly from the Delphi Underground. The sources are friends and associates of the older man above. They openly state that he killed those girls and have provided the story above about how it happened. Now we have had all sorts of rumors floating around about this crime for over a year now, but this is the first time that we have people actually coming forward and openly pointing the finger at people and accusing them of committing this crime. Keep in mind that this man’s very own friends and associates are accusing him of committing this crime! That’s pretty powerful evidence.

An Old Motive Rises from the Past: The Drug Motive, Specifically Methamphetamine
Although these rumors are going about town, everyone is absolutely terrified because some of the people involved seem to be underworld types who may be able to have people killed. Also the crime motive seems to be drugs, and a local man was supposedly killed recently for owing money to a meth dealer. The man is named Daniel Lipps. He was found dead in Schafer Lake in Monticello, Indiana a couple of weeks after police appeared at a house he was in due to a report that he and another man had OD’d. He ran away from police at that time, and went missing for two weeks.
His father made a post on social media telling whoever was holding Daniel that he would pay the drug debt if they would give him evidence that Daniel was still alive. However, Daniel’s death was ruled an accidental drowning. I spoke to a sheriff of the county in which Daniel’s body was found, and he stated that the case was still considered an accidental death and was not being reopened as a homicide.
Nevertheless, the locals still think Lipps was killed, and think if they speak up against this group, they will be killed, so no one wants to talk, especially on record. They also do not want to talk to police. The reason given is that many people in Delphi think that the local police are corrupt and there is a fear that the local LE are somehow involved in the local drug trade, possibly by protecting some of the big dealers.
The motive? It’s one of the most hated rumors of all, especially by me. I have been attacking this motive as incorrect forever now. And now here it is, coming back to haunt us again like those other awful rumors. The motive is drugs, specifically methamphetamine. So we are back to the meth rumors again that were so common early on.
Some Very Strange Goings-on in Delphi Just Before the Murders
Shortly before the murders, some strange things happened.
Some tainted meth was being circulated. A number of people had gotten sick or crazed by this bad batch of drugs. Some people are blaming Derrick German, father of Libby, for selling this bad batch. A local man says Derrick’s bad batch caused the man’s girlfriend to miscarry, and he blames Derrick for the death of the baby. This man later falsely confessed to the murders in the midst of a meth psychosis. This false confession was breathlessly covered by Michael Greeno.
Derrick German owed the older man above (possible Bridge Man) a lot of money for meth, and he was unable to pay.
A large amount of drugs, possibly meth, suddenly went missing.
The motivation for the crime then, according to this theory, is retribution or paybacks to Derrick German for any of various things: a bad drug batch harming people who took it, the large amount of drugs gone missing, or owing money for drugs he could not pay back.

A Family Member Knows Who the Killer Is?
Oh and one more thing. This just in.
A new rumor that a family member has known who the killer is for about a month now. As far as what they have done with this information, I have no idea. Source: Members of our forum.
However, another source in direct with Becky Patty insists that this rumor is not correct. Source: A friend on Facebook who knows a lot about this crime and is in touch with the families. This rumor will remain Unconfirmed for now.
Until next time!
NOTE TO COMMENTERS 1: I am getting really sick and tired of saying this over and over, but most of the material below is made up of rumors and my own opinions and theories. None of that is represented as fact. Furthermore, I am not using rumors as reliable sources as has been alleged. I never said they were reliable sources. How reliable is a rumor? That’s for you to determine, but in general a rumor is not considered to be a reliable source, and they are not treated as such below. The only thing that is represented as fact are statements sourced from LE or the media. If you have issues with rumors, theories, opinions. etc., just quit reading right now and get off my site and don’t come back. You will not be missed!
NOTE TO COMMENTERS 2: I thought I made this one thing perfectly clear as Richard Nixon used to say: I have no sources whatsoever among the families of the girls. I have no sources whatsoever in LE, local or otherwise. There ya go. What I do have is sources close to the families. These people generally live in Delphi and the surrounding region. So that makes my rumors even more hearsay. I’m not even talking to the families. I am talking to people who talk to the families! Of course I have no LE sources. I thought I made that clear. Never have. Yes, I have talked to some of them, but of course they didn’t tell me a thing. A couple of times they told me that a certain person was a POI or that a certain person had been cleared with an airtight alibi. I suppose they don’t mind giving out that information. But other than that, they don’t tell me jack. It’s hard enough to even get them to call you back. I think if I asked them if my name was Robert Lindsay, they would say, “I am sorry, but I cannot comment on matters relating to an ongoing investigation.” That’s how bad it is. So what do I have? Once again, I have sources who are close to LE. They get their information from LE, then they talk to me. So once again this is even more hearsay, as I am not even talking to LE but to the people who are talking to LE. I really wish people would quit claiming I have LE or family sources. I just don’t. If you think I have these sources, just quit reading my stuff right now and go away. You will not be missed! NOTE TO COMMENTERS 3: The lies never end. The latest is “Lindsay takes other people’s theories and claims they are his own.” Of course I don’t. This website is nothing but a compendium of rumors from all over the Net regarding this crime. I go through the rumors and try to rank them on a scale of weak to strong. I compare them against other rumors to see which one is better. All sorts of theories have been flying around since day one. I report those too. The theories are really just more rumors. I’d say the vast majority of the rumor theories reported here were thought up by other people. I find most of my theories on other sites about this crime. That’s how it works, you know. You get theories about the crime from others. Yes, you use your own theories, and you use other people’s theories. I really do not have time to down through the list of theories and say where I got them from. I have come up with a few of my own, but even with those, I guess someone else thought of them first. Also a lot of the theories here are also the result of constant brainstorming I do with my fellow sleuths. Notice: All of the really hot discussion and sleuthing on the site has headed over to the private password-protected forum, where our team of ~200 websleuths has been working on this case and has assembled a huge case against our suspect, including videos and many photographs. Instructions on how to get on the private forum.
This is a profile of a man who we feel is the best suspect in the double murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German in Delphi, Indiana on February 13, 2017. In also contains some new evidence on the crime and a new rundown of the crime itself.
But first of all, we have some new important information on a Vehicle of Interest in the crime.
Vehicle of Interest
We believe we have identified a Vehicle of Interest (VOI) in the Delphi Murders case. It is a late model white Dodge Dart with paper plates. This vehicle was spotted by a witness at the north end of the bridge at 3 PM on the day of the murders around the time the girls were killed. To our knowledge this is the only vehicle at the scene that was not cleared, so we believe it may be the Bridge Man’s car. We believe the car was a rental car, and the paper plates were stolen.
This same vehicle was also spotted seven miles south of Delphi in the early AM on the morning of the murders at a woman’s home. We believe that our suspect is in this photograph with the VOI. He was visiting a woman’s son, BH, at the home. The woman thought the suspect looked suspicious, so she photographed him and wrote down his license number. We have that license number, and we have several photographs of this vehicle with the suspect standing next to the trunk.
Later the woman’s son, BH, was swabbed for DNA by LE. Reports indicate that the woman who took the photo, shown photos of our main suspect and the man on the bridge, said our suspect was both the man by the car and the man on the bridge. However, her statements have been very inconsistent, and she is not the best witness out there.
One story is that this man was there to pick people up to go off in the woods near the bridge to make methamphetamine. However, I question that, and it has not been proven that our suspect is involved in manufacture of methamphetamine. Further, we are not even sure if our suspect is meth-involved at all.
However, it does appear that at some time later, the woman’s daughter M, her boyfriend KC and another man named TJF did leave (probably in a separate vehicle) to go make methamphetamine in the woods near the bridge. It does seem that there were two small teams making meth in the woods around the bridge sometime during the day or night of February 13. This is part of the “Meth Theory” according to which some of these people murdered the two girls. I am quite dubious of the Meth Theory of the Delphi Murders.
We believe that the car photographed may have been the same car used in the crime. We investigated the license plate and traced it back to the nearby city of Kokomo. We believe that the license plate was either stolen in Kokomo or provided by someone in that town. The license number is #G908510. At the time of the crime, the license plate was still valid, but it expired in April. We believe these plates have probably been discarded. This information has been shared with LE, but we have no idea if LE agrees with us that this may be the VOI in the crime. This is simply the car that the Beyond Highbrow team of ~200 websleuths believes may be the VOI.
We have reason to believe that LE may be interested in this photograph although they have not made any statements about these photos. Nevertheless, we feel that if you recognize the man in the photo or if you saw this vehicle or license number around the time of the crime, we think you should notify LE. We also would also like to talk to you. Contact information for this site is on the Contact page.
If you are innocent and you are the man in the photo, or if that is your vehicle, or that was your license plate number, we feel you should go to LE and inform them of that so you are no longer under suspicion. Nevertheless, we have serious doubts that an innocent man, vehicle or license # is in this photo.
It is correct that LE has not released any information about this photo, but perhaps they may in the future. Although these photos have been released on some Facebook fora, they have sparked little interest. We have been holding these photos for a long time and were afraid to release them for fear of interfering with the investigation. However, with the release of the composite and after thinking long and hard, we are having a hard time understanding how releasing this information harms the case. Instead, it may well prompt more tips. Also, MSM news sites may pick up on this story, which may prompt even more tips.
At least some of us sleuths here sometimes work with LE on this case. We cooperate fully with LE on all of these posts. After publication, LE was asked if they wanted us to take down any photos or information on this page due to possible harm to the investigation. We were not told to withhold any of the information or photos here, so we are going to continue publishing this material until we are told to stop. These photos were specifically turned over to LE on Friday morning, July 21.
The Actual Murders
Items Owned by the Girls
We doubt if Libby’s phone was recovered by LE. We believe all of the information on the phone was taken from the Cloud before the phone died. We believe her phone was taken by the killer. We continue to believe that he may have disposed of it in a gravel pit lake on the Mears property next door to Ron Logan’s property. We do not believe that LE has yet searched or drained this lake. They would probably need a warrant to do that, and I doubt if the Mears wish to give LE permission to search or drain that lake.
The Audiotape of the Crime
One of the victim’s family was allowed to hear only the first six minutes of the audio. It is from the following listening session that we have learned the following:
Only six minutes of the 40 minute video are known. After the killer say, “Down the hill,” there are only the sounds of people walking through the forest for several minutes. There are muffled voices of more than one person talking at this time, although it is hard to make out what anyone is saying. Towards the end of the six minutes, the Bridge Man and the girls can be heard crossing the creek, which was knee-high where they crossed, albeit icy cold.
At some around this period, you hear both girls screaming on the audio, probably before the attack took place. Why no one heard these screams is not known. We believe the actual attack started after the three had crossed the creek. It is unknown what prompted the attack. We believe that the first attack consisted of a knife attack to the back of the neck of one of the girls, and the victim went right down after this attack. It is not known what is on the rest of the audio, but it appears to consist of the sounds of the two murders taking place. Both murders were apparently caught on audio in full.
The following consists of a number of rumors about how the girls were killed. Most of these rumors have not yet been validated and should be taken with a huge grain of salt. However, the rumors in italics are apparently true to the best of our knowledge:
Probably or Fully True Rumors
Both girls were disrobed either partially or fully. One was naked, but the other had a top on. Both girls were bottomless, and the panties of both girls were found at some distance from the crime scene. Some of the girls’ clothing was found in the creek. One girl was propped up against a tree in a sitting position. One girl had the top half of her body covered with leaves. There was blood and dirt under Liberty’s nails and dirt under Abbie’s nails. Abbie’s nails were badly torn up. One girl had an F carved or burned into her chest. Police believe that Libby had 4-5 chances to escape, but did not flee because she was so dedicated to her friend that she vowed to not leave her friend in this horrible state with this monster. In real life, they were inseparable. One or possibly both girls had their throats slit. One girl’s throat was so badly cut that she was nearly decapitated.
More Uncertain But Plausible Rumors
At some point, at least one of the girls was stricken with the blunt end of a gun.
At least one of the girls had the back of her head badly bashed in with a heavy object, possibly a rock.
A stake was driven vertically into the abdomen of one of the girls by the killer who was standing over her body. This is another persistent rumor that we have made great efforts to refute but still have not been able to.
One girl had a knife wound to the heart and another to the jugular vein in her throat.
Both girls were beaten nearly beyond recognition.
This stake to the stomach is one of the reasons for the consistent rumors that one of the girls was pregnant. It is not known if either girl was in the early stages of pregnancy, however this is a persistent rumor that we have not been able to refute despite our best efforts to do so. The rumor initially stated that one girl was pregnant, but now it says that the other girl was pregnant. Another rumor is that part of the attack was set off by the killer becoming enraged when he found out one girl was pregnant. How he found this out is not known, but perhaps she told him in an effort to spare her life.
The killer used some sort of strong chemical to try to destroy any of his DNA left at the scene.
The girls were “posed” in the crime scene.
There are inconsistent rumors of whether the girls were sexually assaulted. One rumor says they were, and in fact, it goes into some detail about what happened during and after the assault. We will not go into the details of this rumor at the moment for obvious reasons. But the latest rumor, apparently from an excellent source, is that the girls were not sexually assaulted.
The Bridge Man and Our Suspect: Too Many Coincidences
We believe that the Bridge Man is wearing boots from the Indiana Packers plant in town. The suspect formerly worked at Indiana Packers for a significant period of time from the mid-90’s to mid 2000’s and may have retained work boots from that job. We believe that the Bridge Man is a fisherman. The suspect is an avid fisherman almost to the point of obsession and fanaticism. The Bridge Man is definitely left-handed. The suspect is also left-handed. Actually he is ambidextrous, but he prefers his left hand. The Bridge Man is bowlegged. The suspect is also bowlegged, probably from extensive horse riding as a youth. We have a photograph of the suspect next to a horse. The suspect grew up right around the area of the crime in the vicinity of a lot of horses. The Bridge Man is duck-footed; that is, his feet go outward when he walks. The suspect is also duck-footed. The Bridge Man has an injury to his left knee which is obvious in the moving gif’s of him walking on the bridge. The suspect also has a serious injury to his left knee, has several deep stitches on it, and sometimes wears a brace. We have a photograph of the suspect’s scarred left knee and a photograph of the suspect wearing what appears to be a knee brace on his left knee. The Bridge Man is 50-60 years old. The suspect is 52 years old. The Bridge Man is 5’8 – 5’10 and weighs 180-220 pounds. The suspect is 5’8, and when last weighed was 170 pounds, but that was a few years ago, and he seems to have gained weight after his recent release from prison. The Bridge Man appears to be in good shape for his age based on the way he easily navigates the rickety, frightening bridge. Being an avid outdoorsman, the suspect has been in great shape his whole life, but he has developed a paunch as a recent middle-aged development. The Bridge Man smokes and is smoking during the crime. He may also smoke cigarillos, as a cigarillo wrapper was found at the scene. The suspect also smokes, and he does smoke cigarillos. We have a video of the suspect smoking a cigarillo.
We believe that a white compact vehicle may have been used by the Bridge Man to commit this crime. The suspect was photographed the night before the crime in Indianapolis, and the photographs were posted to a social media page the night of the crime. We have two of these photographs. In one of these photographs, the suspect is standing next to a white compact car. We believe that this photograph was used by the suspect to foreshadow the crime he intended to commit the next day by leaving a tantalizing clue, which is something that he loves to do.
In the number and strangeness of the tantalizing clues this suspect leaves about his crimes, the suspect resembles the Zodiac Killer, the BTK Killer and others. The suspect also likes to ridicule and mock LE. If this case ever goes to trial, it may go down in history on the same level as those other crimes where the criminal left clues behind to tease and taunt LE.
We have quite a few more coincidences between the suspect and the Bridge Man, but we do not want to release that material now due to fears of harming the investigation. All of our material was officially turned over to LE on Friday, July 21.
More About the Man on the Bridge
Although the Bridge Man is said to be wearing a fanny pack in the bridge photo, he is actually wearing what is called a deer kit. This typically contains scissors, knives, etc. for cutting up the game that the hunter has killed, and the Bridge Man’s pack may have contained similar items. He may have used some of these items to cut up the girls.
We know the Bridge Man is left-handed because he has a left-handed gun holster strapped to his right side with a semiautomatic pistol in it. We believe we know more about this holster but are not releasing it for now.
We know the Bridge Man has a gun on him as it can clearly be seen in outline under his jacket. We believe we know more about this gun but are not releasing it now.
We believe that the Bridge Man’s gun is either unregistered or stolen. If stolen, we believe he may have stolen it from Ron Logan somehow. If this is true, we do not understand this aspect of the case.
We know much more about the Bridge Man but are not releasing it due to fears of harming the investigation. All of this information was officially turned over to LE on Friday, July 21.
Suspect’s Background and Life Story
The suspect resides within a 20 mile radius of Delphi.
The suspect is a former resident who grew up in Delphi right around the area of the crime and still knows all of the landowners around there, including Ron Logan, Marvin Sandifur, the Mearses, and Ivan Brumbaugh. The suspect is either Amish (shunned), German Baptist or is strongly associated with one of those communities. He knows the area around the crime scene, including Logan’s land, Deer Creek itself, and the bridge like the back of his hand.
The suspect has a low education level but probably graduated from high school.
The suspect had a very messy divorce with his ex-wife, including violent child custody issues. The suspect did a short stint in prison for badly assaulting his ex-wife.
The suspect has a long record of mostly minor crimes with some jail stints and one short prison stint. All crimes were committed in Indiana. Crimes were mostly repeated drunk driving but also assault and harassment charges. All of his ex-wives have no-contact orders against him, which implies domestic violence on his part in each case.
In terms of crimes for which he has not been caught, he has been accused of petty theft. We also have suspicions that he has been involved in arson, perhaps multiple arsons and that one or more of these arsons has resulted in homicide. We believe he may be a serial killer, and we suspect he may have been involved in another at the very least one other multiple murder in the local area. We are currently investigating his background to look for other possible crimes he may be tied to, especially arsons and homicides.
The suspect is no longer employed and is on disability, but in the past he worked at different jobs, including handyman and electrician.
Suspect – Social Aspects
The suspect has strong, warm feelings towards his two grown children and seems to have a great relationship with them.
The suspect has a new girlfriend about his age who may be a native of the region. She is a kind, sweet, gentle lady who absolutely adores the suspect and nearly worships him as a god. They appear to have a stable, warm, loving relationship. She is apparently completely clueless about his dark side.
Relations with the ex-wife are not known, although both the suspect and the ex-wife showed up for his son’s recent high school graduation. Some say that the suspect has strong hatred for his ex-wife, but this is uncertain.
The suspect has a circle of warm friends with whom he has good relations. These are very masculine, tough, hard, outdoorsy men of about the same age who think he is completely on the up and up. He’s fooling them all.
The suspect can seem quite warm and friendly, “like your best friend.” He is easy to befriend, when befriended seems charming and disarming, and seems increasingly harmless the more you get to know him.
Suspect – Psychological Profile
The subject has Axis 2 Cluster B pathology. The suspect is a psychopath and has narcissism/Narcissistic Personality Disorder/Malignant Narcissism. He has no Axis 1 Disorders. He is not psychotic. In fact, he is very sane, almost too sane, and that is part of how he gets away with his crimes. There are no signs of mood disorder. The suspect appears calm with little or no anxiety issues.
The suspect is strongly heterosexual. Although rage and hatred towards females seems apparent with the crime the suspect committed, these feelings are otherwise not obvious in his life. The suspect sometimes displays hostility to women. A lot of men do this when provoked, but he does it with little provocation, and his reactions are quite extreme, often including vague rape and death threats.
The suspect is very masculine in the manner of many middle-aged men in the area. He is a hard, tough man who uses foul language and has a rough and sometimes menacing way of speaking.
The suspect seems normal, but the following concepts also describe him well: sneaky, devious, unreadable, slick, bad boy, naughty, playful, outlaw, gleam in his eye, and rebellious. He appears to be hiding something or keeping a secret. There is a general feeling of what you see is not what you get.
The suspect is the ultimate chameleon. He is an enigma, puzzling and hard to figure out, an actor who sees life as a series of roles. He does not appear suspicious to most observers. Instead he hides in plain sight and blends right in with society. He is very capable of fooling people, an Academy award-winning actor who sees life is an endless series of roles to be played based on whatever the needs of the given situation may be.
The suspect is capable of fooling people so easily because he is a sneaky, devious, underhanded, conspiring and plotting man. Most of his actions are well plotted and planned, even calculated to the point of being choreographed. The suspect displays little spontaneity other than regular rages.
His IQ is surely within the 84-116 normal range (2/3 of the population) and probably within the 90-110 range (half the population), though he may be towards the lower end. However, the suspect is much more intelligent than he appears and possesses a sheer animal, devious, and cunning intelligence. In terms of this sort of intelligence, he has a genius IQ. He is a very hard man to fool, and he is an expert at reading others.
The suspect has a violent hair-trigger temper which can be set off at any time with little provocation. Although he has committed acts of serious violence in the past, this temper nevertheless generally takes a verbal rather than physical form and consists of menace, threats, stalking, harassment, terrorizing and intimidation.
The suspect takes little or no responsibility for his actions and blames others for everything. He attacks others and then claims to be acting in self-defense.
The suspect is a pathological liar. Truth is mixed in with lies and fabrications to the point where he believes his own lies and even gets caught in them. Reactions when caught in his pathological lying are temper tantrums, rage, ranting, and veiled threats via angry and menacing language.
In his court cases, the suspect engaged in shameless, pathological, defensive lying and blaming of others.
The suspect has the following life themes: You can’t win, They’ve got it in for me, Life is a game, I’m fooling them.
Suspect – Verbal Style
The suspect has a versatile verbal style and can seem sentimental, poetic, moving and even philosophical. He is capable of fooling people into thinking he is a person who cares deeply about life’s small and kind wonders.
Verbal defenses are denial, rage, rants, and especially redirection. Other defenses include an excellent ability at distracting people and directing attention away from what is important. For this, he utilizes red herrings, irrelevancies, redirection, minor details, fussing, wrong turns, wrong directions, wrong way streets, and misdirection.
The suspect is also a storyteller and likes to tell long, rambling, colorful, Mark Twain-style stories that tell it like it is about what seem to be ordinary people and communities but in fact are anything but. He can be entertaining in this role. He turns off some who find him a quasi-literate blowhard, but others find him endearing, as his stories could be seen as charming.
The motivation for this crime is hard to figure out, but we suspect it may be similar to many serial killers. Although there is no evidence yet that the Bridge Man has killed other people beyond this crime, he certainly may have. Hence we believe the suspect is a “serial killer type” instead of a serial killer. In that case, the motivation for the crime is that of a sexually sadistic psychopathic serial type killer.
Suspect – Appearance, Lifestyle, Habits, Beliefs and Opinions
The suspect has one large tattoo on his upper right front shoulder. We do not know what this is a tattoo of.
The suspect has some sort of gang ties with the Aryan Brotherhood (AB), possibly as a result of his incarceration. We have photographs of the suspect throwing Aryan Brotherhood gang signs. Nevertheless, we have little evidence that he is a White Supremacist, and on his social mediapages, he comes across as an anti-racist, even a coastal liberal variety. He may have only joined the AB for protection in prison.
The suspect appears to be a carefree practical joker who lives a playful, laid back, easy-going lifestyle where most things are jokes, and little is to be taken seriously. He is the life of the party.
The suspect is a regular drug user. He mostly uses marijuana, which he enjoys a lot.
The suspect was formerly a very heavy drinker, and many problems, especially legal ones, resulted from this. We believe he may now be sober.
Beliefs and Opinions
The suspect’s philosophical outlook can be summed up as a cynical one that humans are lowly animals who are corrupt at their core and are driven by low, base interests. He accuses LE and small town government people in the local area of being incorrigibly corrupt. His reaction to the picture he paints of Tobacco Road sleaze in the underbelly of Mayberry RFD small town White America is offended, cynical, fatalistic and somewhat disgusted – the good citizen outraged by omnipresent sleazy corruption.
The suspect has a very low opinion of LE in Delphi and the surrounding area, as he claims that they ran him out of town as a habitual drunk driving offender. He has a grudge against local LE.
The suspect’s political beliefs are quite liberal. He comes across as an aging hippie type, unusual for Indiana.
Suspect – Role in the Investigation
The suspect has inserted himself deeply in the investigation to an almost unprecedented degree. He is now one of the most well-known people who are “trying to find the killer.” In part this is being done to try to divert attention away from himself, but another factor seems to be narcissism, possibly even Malignant Narcissism, which means he can’t help himself. He loves the limelight and the sound of his own voice, is something of a publicity hound, likes the idea that he is hiding right under the noses of everyone and getting away with it, and thinks this is all some sort of a joke.
The suspect’s attitude towards the investigation is hard to figure. We believe he is nervous and fearful of being caught but also sees the whole thing as a hilarious game of cat and mouse. He’s fooling LE and all of society, getting away with murder, and hiding right under their noses. He also seems to be playing a game of, “Neener neener. I’m the killer, and you’ll never catch me ha ha!” In this sense he resembles the Zodiac Killer and the BTK Killer.
The suspect sought out LE (FBI) early in the investigation in order to leave a tip. We have a video of him calling in this phone tip.
We believe he did this as part of a plan to frame an innocent man. We believe he was originally going to commit this crime and then lay low, but that changed after he was photographed and recorded on audio. Over the next month we believe he then formulated an elaborate case to try to frame an innocent man, a former workmate who he had had a falling out with. This consisted of a very long and elaborate theory which did not make much sense on examination. Further, the man he attempted to frame did not seem like the type to do such a crime. The suspect also included a number of videos as part of this plan. He then went out on the Internet and tried to promulgate this theory on a number of websites and on Facebook and Youtube. He was fairly successful at this until some people started catching on to his scheme.
A commenter on the protected post comments on her view of the state of cultural collapse of the White working class in Northeast Indiana around the area of the Delphi Murders:
Cathie: I am loss for words when I look at the posts of all these young women, babies at a young age, meth, with wannabe “Ganstas.” It truly saddens me. What the heck is going on in the world? Lack of education, opportunities? As I said before, I bet the Midwest was really hard hit by the last recession.
Mer criticizes me every time I bring this up, but I feel the same way you do. It feels like the White working class in these Flyover states is in a state of cultural collapse. Maybe I am showing my age, but it was not like this when we were growing up. Girls didn’t pop out babies right after one another right after high school. I grew up on the beach. Long hair, rock music, surfer chicks, promiscuity, pot, LSD and sadly later cocaine somewhat, but it was all well managed.
Young men and teenage boys are always bad boys, but I look back and I think the bad boys nowadays have gotten so much worse. Most of us stayed out of jail. Our heroes were hippies like Tim Leary. Surfers had sort of gangs to some extent, but not really. More like “my beach, my waves” stuff. We did not imitate ghetto Blacks. Joining a white supremacist prison gang was not cool. It was very not cool to go to prison, much less jail, but if anyone did, it was for selling acid or coke, and they came out OK, still peaceful hippies.
Dope/booze, promiscuity, bad boys, bad girls: all of these things are timeless elements of teenage and young adulthood, but there is a difference of degrees. And White people have gone seriously downhill on all this stuff. The sex is worse, the STD’s are worse, the dope is worse, the music is worse, the role models are worse, the male and female behavior is worse, the irresponsibility is worse, the imprisonment rate is much worse, and the gangsterism is horrifically worse.
Sorry, but all this stuff is a matter of degree, and these new young people have really gone off the cliff.
I hate to say it, but I have noticed that a lot of folks from that part of rural Indiana around Delphi cannot spell, punctuate or use grammar to save their lives. Many can barely write a proper English paragraph.
Indiana has a low rate of college graduation, something like 11%. That’s very much on the low side for the US.
It’s not much that the people there are dumb. They’re probably around as smart as anywhere. But I have been told that most people in Indiana who are college material either leave the state for university or go to university in Indiana and then leave the state for work. So what is happening is that plenty of bright people are being born and brought up in the state, but most of them are taking off around college age for school and later for work.
So what’s left is a lot of people with a high school education who can’t write English very well.
In their defense, I would say that if you live in a town like that, you simply do not need a university degree, and you sadly you don’t even need to be able to write a proper English paragraph. The jobs that are available there mostly don’t care how well you write and a degree is not needed for most of the jobs. No one cares if you can’t write proper English, so there is no social penalty for not writing well. Humans are basically lazy. If there’s no overriding reason to learn something, they usually don’t bother. Instead humans are adaptive. They learn whatever they need to learn to do whatever they need to do. Anything more is seen as superfluous and a waste of time. Some people like me learn things as a near-sensual activity, but I’m not a normal or typical person and most folks don’t have that same attitude towards learning new things.
They are being raised in working class communities where the emphasis is just to graduate high school and go get yourself a job. There’s no premium or status given to intelligence, education, erudition or knowledge.
So this tends to discourage people from self-educating themselves, which believe it or not, even people like me have done a lot of.

Woodlands are a pig’s natural habitat. But pigs are adaptable to just about any environment. They live on every continent (except Antarctica).
In the forests and woodlands where wild pigs live, trees and vegetation provide them with shelter and their preferred foods. They like places where they’ll have year-round access to water and moist ground for wallowing, such as swamps and marshes.
In spring they graze on grasses and clover. Throughout the year they’ll forage for berries, nuts, acorns, mushrooms, insects, and sometimes small rodents. But one thing a pig was designed to do is root. A pig’s snout allows it to navigate and interact with its environment – sort of like a cat’s whiskers.
The nasal disc of a pig’s snout, while rigid enough to be used for digging, has numerous sensory receptors. In addition to being useful as a fine and powerful tool for manipulating objects, the extensive innervation in the snout provides pigs with an extremely well-developed sense of smell.
Pigs can smell roots and tubers that are deep underground and in the wild can spend up to 75 percent of their day rooting and foraging. Some homesteaders put pigs’ rooting instinct to work for them and use pigs to “till” garden plots.
Daniel MacPhee and his wife use Guinea Hog piglets on their New England farm, but unlike some farmers, they don’t plan to eat their pigs.
Instead, the piglets are meant as an environmentally- and -budget-friendly cleanup crew of sorts, rooting around to clean out tough, tangled roots after a small flock of sheep has grazed at the couple’s farm, Blackbird Rise in Palermo [Maine].
By having the animals do the work, “we’re not buying machinery and we’re not wasting fossil fuels,” said MacPhee, 35. “They’re eating the roots and vegetable matter, processing that and putting nutrients back in the soil through manure. They’re doing all the same things a tractor does but without the environmental impact.”
The Guinea Hogs on their farm are a “heritage breed,” the name given to any of the distinct breeds that can be traced back to the period before industrial farming. Generations ago, there were hundreds of pig breeds on homesteads in Europe and the United States. But a lot of the historic breeds fell out of favor as the pork industry moved toward leaner carcasses and began large-scale confinement operations. This was in part the result of corn production.
As the larger settled farms of the Midwest began to produce excess corn, the availability and low cost of this feed attracted pig production and processing to the region. By the mid-1800s the states that produced the most corn also produced the most pigs, and production declined in the East and New England. The industry was becoming geographically centralized as well and the number of breeds of pigs began to decline. Several breeds became extinct by the early 1900s.
Pigs are for the most part no longer produced and sold by independent producers on open markets. Since the late 20th century, pig production in the United States has come to be dominated by a few large, vertically-integrated corporations that control every step along the way from the selection of breeding stock to the retailing of pork. A lot of the farmers who are still in the business are contract growers for the corporations. But there are independent pig farmers who are dedicated to bringing back the old breeds and are raising them in the traditional way, on pasture and in woodlands.
Some heritage breeds are very rare and are listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Among heritage breeds is the very popular Berkshire pig, a black pig designated “first class”. Farmers say that Berkshires have an excellent disposition and are very friendly and curious.
The Tamworth is a golden-red pig and a direct descendant of the wild boars that roamed the forests of Staffordshire. They are considered very outdoorsy and athletic. (They make the best bacon in the United States, according to some fans.)
The Large Black retains the traits of its ancestors that lived on the pastures and woods of England in the 16th and 17th centuries. They are hardy animals that can withstand cold and heat. They are well-known as docile hogs.
The Hereford is a medium-size pig that is unique to the United States. Its name is inspired by its striking color pattern of intense red with white trim, the same as that of Hereford cattle. These pigs also have a reputation for being easy-going.
The Red Wattle is especially in danger of extinction. It is a large red hog with a fleshy wattle attached to each side of the neck. These pigs are very hardy with an especially mild temperament.
There are other heritage breeds, some of which number as low as a few hundred worldwide. Heritage pig farmers want to increase demand for their breeds, because to eat them is to preserve them, they say. There is, in fact, a growing market for heritage pork, which is more tender and tastes much better than mass-produced pork. Just looking at a cut of heritage pork you see a striking difference. It’s typically darker than pork from industrial farms, some as red as beef.
Of course, there are heritage pig farmers like the MacPhees, who just like having pigs on the farm, performing those unique tasks that pigs do.
If you’ve got children, there are heritage pig breeds they would easily get along with. Brian Wright raises heritage pigs and says that some are considered docile while others are seen as “evil, killer hogs” – in other words, very aggressive. You’ve got to do your homework before picking a breed.
The Rossi Farm in Rhode Island began breeding Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs several years ago and the pigs have become a favorite. Nicknamed Orchard Hogs, these pigs originally foraged for windfall apples and are distinguished by the black spots on their white coats.
The Rossis say Gloucestershire Old Spots are extremely friendly and laid-back. When the pigs are in the pasture, the children are often out there with them. And the pigs love having their ears scratched by the kids.
Tulio sums it all up so perfectly. These are just vicious circles that endlessly feed back and loop into each other like a dog chasing its tail. One wonders what the solution is. Provocation, revenge attacks, revenge attacks for the revenge attacks, jumpy cops, belligerent suspects, and worst of all, increasingly frightened and angry people looking for more revenge, paybacks and pre-emptive reactions, it just goes on and on.
Hatfields and McCoys.
Tulio: The Black man shot in Milwaukee was shot by a Black cop. Which makes this race rioting all the more bizarre.
This has all been stirred up by the media. When the media focuses on something and starts a narrative, it can lead to a moral panic. Many Black folks, even ones that have never had any violent encounter with the cops, think they are currently under siege. Even if the statistics show that an innocent Black man being killed by cops is more rare than being struck by lightning. Or that 95% of Blacks die at the hand of other Blacks. It doesn’t matter. The news shows it over and over, and it whips them into a frenzy that feeds of itself.
And then people overreact, and there are race riots and retaliatory cop killings. And then race relations began a downward spiral. Whites turn on the news and see Blacks tearing stuff up, setting buildings on fire and shooting cops, which makes them more racist. Then Blacks see Whites becoming more racist and say, “See that, they hate us! Just like we said all along!” Cops who now have to deal the possibility of being shot on the job may be even more inclined to have hair-trigger responses with Blacks, which then feeds into the notion that cops are out to get Blacks, and then you just have one big clusterfuck spiraling out of control.
While I’m not a racist or a racial separatist, the separatists do make good points. If we didn’t share the same nation, we wouldn’t have to worry about intractable race problems. Or the differences in behaviors and perceptions that cause race problems. Dividing up the country into racial territories is never going to happen, but I see why some people would be in favor of it as a solution to race problems, and it makes completely sense in a lot of ways.
Peace in a multiracial society can be fragile. Everything can be humming along fine, and all it takes is for someone to get shot by a cop, and all Hell lets loose, and you see that this pent-up resentment was there all along under the shallow skin of a “post-racial” nation (yeah right).
Also, Whites are capable of this moral panic as well. In their case, swap cops for Muslim terrorists. Even though the statistical likelihood of being killed by a Muslim terrorist on any given day is probably even less likely than being innocently murdered by a cop, Americans think they are constantly under siege from terrorists and that terrorism is more prevalent than it actually is in reality. We have a presidential candidate that doesn’t even want Muslims stepping foot on US soil, and a large of America that agrees with him. Even though we’re orders of magnitude more likely to be killed by a homegrown mass shooter.
So to whites, there’s a terrorist hiding behind every tree ready to kill you. To Blacks, the nation is full of racist cops that want to shoot you dead over a broken taillight. And it’s not that there aren’t terrorists, or that there aren’t cops with an itchy trigger finger and racial biases. It’s that these scenarios are wildly exaggerated by the media, and 99.9% of the Muslims living in America aren’t bothering anyone. And 99.9% of cops will never shoot an unarmed man that isn’t threatening anyone. But the news will keep harping on the .01% exceptions and brainwash people into thinking it’s the norm by running a narrative. And most people are too dumbed down and gullible to question it.
Famous case from late 2014 in Chicago. It didn’t happen the way the media said it did. He wasn’t walking away from police. He was approaching them and he was armed with a knife. Cops had guns drawn and warned him repeatedly to drop the knife but he continued to approach police armed with a knife. When he got to within 10 feet of police, one officer opened fire. However, 16 shots were fired, many of which when he was already down on the ground after being shot, and that doesn’t seem to make sense at all. The officer Jason Van Dyke is on trial for murder. The trial has not yet started.
Mr. McDonald was not portrayed properly in the media. Photos showed him as a boy and another showed him with a graduation cap on, but that must have been from junior high as he never graduated from high school to my knowledge.
McDonald was 18 years old going on a very early grave, full speed ahead. I figure this shooting postponed the inevitable for probably less than 10 years. He had already been shot multiple times by rival pharmacy organizations while he was employed as a Street Pharmacist for the New Breeds Pharmacy Group, a profession he took up at the tender age of 12.
The ward was born to a 15-year-old mother who herself was a ward. The teen mother entered DCFS care at the age of 12 because of her mother’s extensive drug history, including giving birth to a substance-exposed (PCP) infant, her lack of participation in services, and her extensive criminal history for drug charges.
By the age of 18 the teen ward lost custody of her then 3-year-old son and his younger sister after she left the children home alone and the younger sister suffered extensive burns which required hospitalization. The mother was indicted for inadequate supervision. The two children were placed with several relatives and were returned to the mother in 18 months under an order of protection.
A year after they were returned to their mother, the then 5-year-old boy and his sister reentered DCFS custody because of physical abuse by the mother and her boyfriend. The boy reported that he often witnessed domestic violence between his mother and her boyfriend. His father was incarcerated.
The mother, then 21 years old, did not participate in services, struggled with continued drug use and did not visit her children. After several failed placements, including one where the boy was sexually abused, the maternal great-grandmother took the children into her home. In first grade the boy was described as sometimes explosive. In 2006, when the boy was nine, the great-grandmother obtained subsidized guardianship of the children and DCFS closed its case.
The boy became involved with gangs and selling drugs on the street at age 12. He was a member of the New Breeds gang and had sold drugs for the gang and had been shot at by rival gang members but did not engage in gang violence. At the age of 13 he was arrested and referred to juvenile court for possession of a controlled substance.
At the age of 16 he was incarcerated at the juvenile detention center for violation of probation. He was released and placed on electronic monitoring so he could visit his 79-year-old great-grandmother before she died and attend her funeral. Afterward DCFS became his guardian and learned that he had been living with his mother prior to his detention.
While in detention he exhibited aggressive behaviors, but his behavior was uneven. At times he was respectful and insightful; however his poor judgment put him at risk of harm. At one court hearing he was high on PCP and had an aggressive outburst in the courtroom resulting in his being taken into custody and placed in detention.
He violated probation several times and cut off his ankle home monitor. His mother became involved in treatment and began family therapy with her son.
The community service provider recommended intensive outpatient treatment while probation recommended commitment to the Department of Corrections or a residential treatment center. The court-appointed advocate recommended residential treatment. A DCFS staffing resulted in a referral to an intensive specialized foster care program for dually involved (delinquent and child welfare) youth. He and his mother agreed to attend therapy. His uncle agreed to have the youth placed with him.
Intensive probation stayed involved and the ward was enrolled in an alternative school. He was suspended once but was enrolled when he died.
Judging from the biography of this famous young American Black man, this is looking more and more like what I call a “PSK” or Public Service Killing. Nevertheless, I do not agree that Black scumbags should get the death penalty by extrajudicial execution without trial. Black scumbags suck all right, but they should be dealt with properly by the criminal justice system via the courts, and penitentiary system. We don’t want to turn into a banana republic with death squads running around. Despite the Hispanicization of America, we are yet too good for that at this early date. Death squads are not just White, at least not US White. American White people don’t do it like that, not yet anyway.
However, I will disagree with the narrative and I do think this punk bitch was a threat to the officers. But he was no threat lying on the ground shot armed with a knife.
I am just hearing about this right now, but it has been going on for a couple of days now ever since Saturday night, August 13. There was more rioting on Sunday night on August 14 and early this Monday morning on August 15.
This is a very ugly race riot. It reminds me of the Watts Riots and the LA Riots in 1993. The things that remind me of those riots:
Ongoing rioting for more than a day. A riot lasting more than a day is always an ugly riot.
Multiple buildings looted and seven businesses set ablaze or destroyed.
Eight police wounded. That’s a lot.
Heavy gunfire through much of the rioting. During the very bad LA riots mentioned above, there was usually a lot of gunfire such that police were often pinned down and unable to respond.
People wounded by gunfire. People getting shot is always bad news. A lot of people got shot in the Watts Riots.
Attacks on fire trucks and firemen. When they start attacking the fire trucks and firemen, you know it’s a bad riot. There were a lot of attacks on firefighters in both LA riots. The Watts Riots were especially bad in that regard.
Attempts to pull White motorists out of their cars so they can assault them. This is how the famous assault on Reginald Denny occurred in the LA riots. This sort of thing was also going on in the Watts riots. When a bad race riot like this breaks out, all Whites really need to stay the Hell away and not go lookie-looing at it.
Two police cars set ablaze and several more damaged. When they start setting police cars on fire, it’s always a bad riot.
When things like that start happening, it is more than just a police riot. Now you have an out and out race riot similar to the ones we had so many of back in the 1960’s.
August 13, Night
Several cars, including one police car, set on fire.
BP gas station, O’Reilly auto parts store, beauty supply store and BMO Harris branch bank set on fire. The gas station was looted before it was burned.
Supermarket and liquor store destroyed.
Metro PCS along with other stores looted.
When police arrived, gunshots were heard. Firefighters could not put out gas station fire at first due to gunshots but eventually got the fire under control. Rioters attacked fire trucks with bricks. One fireman injured when hit with a brick. Reporters and photographers attacked. One shoved to the ground and assaulted.
Four police wounded.
17 rioters arrested.
August 14, Night
Crowd threw objects at police.
White man shot and wounded near the rioting, apparently by Black rioters. Possibly targeted due to his race. Police needed armored car to retrieve him.
Rioters attempted to pull White motorists out of their cars in order to assault them them.
Gunfire reported. 30 shots fired during the rioting.
August 15, early AM
Three police cars and one BearCat vehicle damaged.
One vehicle and one dumpster set on fire.
Windows broken on store.
Four police wounded.
14 rioters arrested.
Good God, cops are getting shot just about every day now on average.
One in Indianapolis and one in Watts. In Watts, police were called to Nickerson Gardens and interrupted a shooting in progress. One cop got shot, and the gunman was killed. The killer was quite possibly Black. In Indianapolis, a man was stopped for a traffic stop and then took off on a wild high speed chase. In the course of the chase, he shot at cops, wounding one. Another cop was injured in some unknown manner but not by gunshot. The dead man is a young Black man with long dreadlocks.
I have been to Nickerson Gardens before. It is not a pretty place. Watts is truly the heart of the ghetto. As bad as you think the ghetto is, the very heart of the ghetto is where it is the worst of all. I also noticed that the Blacks in very heart of the ghetto seem to be darker-skinned than in the rest of the ghetto. It is not unusual to see Blacks in Watts who are so dark that their skin is almost blue.Ghetto Blacks are not all that friendly anyway, but the ones in the heart of the ghetto really, really hate Whites.The deeper you go into the ghetto, the ore the hate Whites and in the very heart of the ghetto, the White-hatred is so hot it’s almost about to catch fire. You can feel it in your bones, from both the students and even in some of the teachers. Just pure, sheer, utter hate.
Watts is a scary place. I taught there for only one day, and some Blacks disabled my car battery. But this really cool Black Auto Shop teacher fixed it for me. The Black administrators in Watts are really cool. They know it’s hopeless and they are more or less kicking back, holding down the fort and enjoying the show. Teaching students there was hopeless. I substituted for one class and they kept making excuses to get up and go to the bathroom. Then they would never come back. One after the other. Then I got mad and would not let anyone leave anymore. So the students would just stand up and walk out the back door of the class. Then I caved in and said I would let them out on break. One after the other, they raised their hands with some bullshit excuse to leave class.It was literally a dog ate my homework type thing. It was pretty funny and after a while, I was almost doubled over in laughter when another one would raise their hand to be excused. I would just laugh and let them go. I tried to get them to do some work but they simply refused. Nothing was getting done anyway, why not just let them all go home, right? The whole day more or less went like that.
Finally, a new Bigfoot news! This long awaited edition will consist only of some very interesting photos that I have found, including one from Fallbrook, California which is being presented to the public for the very first time. Hopefully, I will have another edition coming out soon with more photos and some text too because I definitely have a few things to write about.
I really think I have writer’s block about these Bigfoot posts. I always say I am going to write one, and then I never do it for some reason. I think I associate them with a lot of anxiety due to all the Hellish controversy they inevitably spawn from the semi-human inhabitants of this ghastly field of Earthly Hellions and assorted lowlifes, cranks, fools, idiots, out and out jerkoffs, loudmouths and belligerent know-nothings.
This photo was submitted to me by a regular housewife from Fallbrook, California who knew nothing whatsoever about Sasquatches and didn’t even necessarily believe in them. It would be hard to find a more naive submitter. She took a photo of her daughter, and when they went to look at the photo, there was what appeared to be a Sasquatch in the background. This happens so many times. She also sent me another photo of the same area, and the Sasquatch looking object was not there.
Do these things make themselves invisible to the photographer somehow (by cloaking?) but somehow they are not invisible to the camera? In other words, you can’t see them with the naked eye for some reason but the camera can pick them up? It might make sense because a camera is not an eyeball. Yes, they both see things, but you eye is an organ in your body that has one way of seeing things, and your camera is a mechanical object that uses a different way of seeing things than your eye uses. Cameras surely do not have irises, optic nerves and an occipital sector in their memory bank.
She was dumbfounded as to what this creature was. She said she was going to France for vacation but would be back in a while. She also said that her dogs had been acting very strange recently, and no one could figure out why. She described the land in the background as “wasteland.” As you can see, the Sasquatch is frozen in some sort of leaning over position. I cannot tell you how many photos I have seen where these things freeze like this. I suppose it is one of their ways of sort of going invisible when they feel they have been seen (freezing). A lot of mammals (and even insects) freeze when spotted by a potential predator. It is a classic means of predator defense to freeze in place.
This is one of the greatest Sasquatch photos that have come out recently. Randles runs a tip-top shape outfit called the Olympic Project. He is a bit controversial in the field, but one thing I know about him is that he is absolutely above hoaxing in any way, shape or form. And the team has some quite professional procedures that they follow. They even have a forensic guy, Rich Germeau, a police officer. Germeau is a very nice guy. I have spoken with him. All in all, I would say that Randles, despite a bit of controversy around him, is one of the best and most ethical people in the field today.
The Olympic Project got a call about suspected Sasquatch activity on the property of an elderly couple who lived on the Olympic Peninsula. It’s hard to say whether they believed in these things before all manner of weirdness began happening on their property. Anyway, they were baffled, and called in the Olympic Project to investigate. The team worked the site for a while and at some point, they set up a night vision camera in a spot and left it on for the night.
There are cows visible in some of the video because the owners run some cattle on their property. Skeptards have been dismissive of this video simply because of the presence of cows! How ridiculous. When the team went back to review the footage later, they saw this obviously alive object peeking over the ridge in the direction of the camera. We know it is alive because it is lit up by the infrared camera, and only living things light up the camera.
The skeptards were once again contemptuously dismissive, and a lot of them claimed the object was obviously a raccoon. Well in that case, it is a raccoon that is quite a bit larger than a man!
It’s not a raccoon. And the shape of the image very much resembles a Sasquatch, which is what the couple suspected was on their property.
It’s not a raccoon, no. As you can see in the blowup above, you can make out the shape of a human shaped living object with two eyes, a nose and a mouth. The eyes, nose and mouth are all a lot larger than those of a human. Note also the wide shoulders, maybe 40 inches wide. No human has shoulders that wide. Note also the lit up area around the breasts. I strongly suspect that this creature, like Patty, is a female.
Here is a comparison shot with a human standing in the same place that the Sasquatch was standing in the photo. As you can see with the superimposition, the human shaped creature is quite a bit larger than the man used as a comparison prop. And it’s no raccoon, unless it’s a raccoon as big as a gorilla.
Ok, then maybe it was a man in a suit. Well first of all, who put a man in a suit out there? Randles doesn’t hoax. This naive elderly couple is sneaking around in a suit in the middle of the night so they can pull off a Bigfoot hoax? Get real. Furthermore, it can’t be a man in a suit because suits cannot expand the size of the human body. Note the size of the body as lit up by the infrared. Your body is as big as it is, no matter what sort of over-fitting suit you put on. The biggest suit around doesn’t make your body any larger, and the suit doesn’t show up on infrared. Only living entities and their components light up on infrared.
Once again, it’s a raccoon. A raccoon the size of Andre the Giant. Uh huh. This is actually the argument by the “science” side that this photo is not real. The “science” guys say it’s a raccoon. An eight foot tall, 800 pound raccoon. So much for “science.”
The lame skeptard argument here is that either Stacy or his father ran through the deep woods of Florida in the middle of the night without a flashlight extremely fast and using the exact same gait as a Sasquatch does. But humans cannot reproduce the gait or a Sasquatch. It can’t be done. No one can do it. And the Browns are not hoaxers. Stacy Brown is a bit of a controversial figure, but he is no hoaxer, and neither is his father. If you see the original video, this thing is running incredibly fast. How does a human run in the deep woods with no flashlight? It doesn’t. It doesn’t run at all. People cannot run fast in the middle of a thick forest at night with no flashlight. Not possible.
Note also the superimposition of an infrared photo of a human taken in the same where the original was taken imposed on the photo. Look at how much larger the object is than a human. That thing is lit up by infrared on Flir. Even if you put a massively over-fitting suit on, you still can’t light up your body any larger on infrared because the suit won’t show up on infrared. Only your body will. You could put a suit as big as a Volkswagen on, and assuming you did not suffocate in it, your image would not show up in infrared any larger than your body.
This is one of Meldrum’s favorites. That thing sure is fast. The skiiers seem pretty naive.
Let’s see. The skiiers got their friend to put on a monkey suit, no wait, carry a monkey suit up that very steep hill in the deep snow (How does he do that even?) up to the top of that ridge and then put that monkey suit on and run extremely fast through 2-3 feet deep snow. How does anyone do that?
Furthermore, the thing is only there for 2-3 seconds. Why would anyone hoax for 2-3 seconds? Hoaxes usually last a lot longer than that.
I have no idea what in the Hell that thing is, but that is one of the most out and out freakiest and most disturbing crypto photos I have ever seen. It has a dead animal draped over its shoulders. Why would a hoaxing human kill a big animal and hang it over this shoulders to hoax a what? A Dogman video. A Dogman video? What the Hell is a Dogman? No one has even heard of these things? Who ever hoaxed a Dogman video? No one did ever. Most people don’t even think they exist, including me (sort of).
And look at the way that freaky thing looks. Someone made a Dogman costume? What? Who did that and why? No one has ever made a Dogman costume. No such costume is known to exist. Anyway, most people don’t have the faintest idea of what these freaky things even look like.
How many people sling dead animals over their shoulder to make Bigfoot hoax videos? No one does ever.
Ok, these things are just way too frightening. Sasquatches vary in their temperament, with maybe 75% being pretty easy-going, another 20% being pretty mean and bad-tempered and maybe 3-4% being what experts call “pure evil.” Sort of like humans, right?
But what we hear about these Dogman freaks is that 100% of them are stone evil to the core. There are even reports that they have murdered humans by ripping them to shreds. There is a report out of Appalachia of a Dogman invading a camper parked at a lake and killing everyone in it by tearing them to shreds. Sheriffs came out later but called it a homicide (by a human). Know any killers that rip human beings to shreds? Neither do I. I don’t mind Sasquatches, but I must say that I hate these Dogmen. Kill em all. Let God sort em out.
Ok, that’s weird. This has supposedly been debunked by the skeptards, and almost everyone believes their verdict. The verdict is that that weird object (once again frozen – note that it is frozen in the exact same pose as the Fallbrook creature above) is a cow. Yes, a cow. Isn’t that lame? Well folks, science has spoken, and that creature in that photo is a cow. That’s right, a cow. Does that look like a cow too you? Me either. But hey, science has spoken folks, so the debate is over, science being infallible and all that. All bow down to the Great God of Science!
This is a cool video. The guy who shot is some good old boy who went hunting one day. He had no idea what this is, so he put it up on Youtube saying what the Hell is this? It’s a Skunk Ape. A skunk ape is just a Sasquatch. That’s the name for the ones that live in the Deep South. Look at the shape of the hands on that thing. Those hands are not human. Ever seen a Bigfoot hoax with hands like that? Me either.
See that sheen glowing off the coat of that thing? That means it’s real fur on a real living object. The sheen is from the oils on your skin. They come to the surface and give animals’ coats a sheen in the sun. No hoaxer has ever been able to reproduce this sheen. Actually, they never even try. Furthermore, I have seen many costumes that our Glorious Special Effects Gods have made, and I haven’s one single costume that had a sheen like this on its coat visible in the sun.
But these Special Effects Gods can do anything, right? No really, they can. Go ask them. They can make a costume that perfectly reproduces any living thing on Earth. No really. I’m not kidding. They all say this. All of them, arrogant-as-Hell bunch that they are. And the vast majority of people believe the Special Effects Liars when they say this. One born every day.
The skeptard argument about this one is truly stupid. This very old couple, who have a vacation home far out in the wilds of Ontario, somehow hoaxed this video! These are old people, in their 70’s. There’s nothing weird about them. Everyone says they are upstanding folks. But an elderly couple in their 70’s hoaxed a Bigfoot video! Never mind that has never happened. There’s never been one case of an elderly couple doing a Bigfoot hoax, but no matter. Science has spoken, folks! Listen up, the Almighty God of Science has spoken, and the scientific fact is that these old people hoaxed this Bigfoot video.
Look at the very weird way that thing looks. I have seen another photo of a Sasquatch from Ontario and it looks exactly like this one, with the deep-set eye-holes and the very tall domed head. Note the philtrum. That head does not even have human proportions. See those eye holes? The hoaxer goofs have never reproduced that, probably because they never even try. And I’ve never seen a face as good as that one, with a philtrum no less.
That face is way too large for a human. How does a human put on such a large mask and still retain the obvious bone and muscle structure that one can obviously see in the shot. You can’t. A mask too large for your face, if it would even stay on, would droop all over the place and would look very fake. Plus it would probably be falling off all the time if it was way too big for your head like that. And your eyes would not fit in the eye holes, your nose would not fit in the nose protuberance, and your mouth would not fit in the mouth hole. Look at that wild fur. There is another shot of this bizarre creature that shows this fur in much wilder shape. That photo was taken by the same couple. It is a back shot.
The back story. The couple lives part time way out in nowhere in Temangami, Ontario. Temangami means “way out in the sticks so far no one ever goes there.” Or something. Well, that’s what it means to me anyway. The couple were hearing a lot of weird noises, and apparently they started taking some photos of the area outside of the cabin.
One argument is that this is Photoshopped, but very good Ontario researchers did a good job of thoroughly investigating this couple and concluded that they were not hoaxing. Furthermore, it’s not Photoshopped because the photos were still in the camera when the investigator came out to look at the case. Anyway, since when does some ordinary couple in their 70’s have such advanced Photoshop skills that they can make a Bigfoot hoax with Photoshop? And you can’t use Photoshop if the file is still in the camera. Photoshop doesn’t work on images that reside only inside of cameras.
I believe once again, the couple thought they were just taking photos of the outside of their cabin, and they only saw the Sasquatch when they were reviewing the photos in the camera. How many times do we hear this? What the Hell is going on?
Yep, it’s a gorilla all right. Look closely at the head, face and especially ears. He sure fooled a lot of people though. I am pretty mad at this idiot though because hoaxes are not funny, and the hoaxing ruins this whole field of research because we have to sift through all sorts of hoaxed crap to find anything real. Further, it throws up the spectre of “hoax” in front of every bit of evidence that we have. So far, “science” has proven that 100% of the voluminous evidence for the existence of Sasquatches is all nothing but hoaxes. Thank God for science! Science to the rescue again!
That thing is massive, and if you see the video, it moves in a very bizarre way that does not even seem human. But I have seen other Sasquatch photos and videos with this exact same bizarro movement going on, which I cannot describe here in words.
Also the video is very poor quality. Why would anyone make a hoax of such awful quality? That makes no sense. All known hoaxes are clear as air. That’s the purpose of the hoax. A hoax with very poor visual quality doesn’t even work as a hoax. Hoaxes must be clear, or they are useless.
Look at the size of that damn thing. It looks like a gorilla! These things are not gorillas or even apes anymore than we are, but it’s quite common for people who get a quick look at one to describe them as gorillas. I remember one famous photo out of Maine where a Sasquatch was raiding an apple tree. In that case, the man who owned the property where the photo was taken said he had spoken to some people who asked him if there was a traveling zoo in the area because the man said he saw a gorilla run across the road. Another man fishing on a lake said he saw a gorilla by the shore of the lake. So you see these things are often mistaken for gorillas, which they superficially represent.
The photo is a female Sasquatch kneeling down in front of the motion activated camera. There is apparently a baby Sasquatch hanging onto her back, but that’s what the babies do – they hang onto the backs of the mothers.
See the famous Memorial Day footage of an adolescent female Sasquatch running across a field, picking up a baby halfway, and putting it on her back. The baby rides on her back for most of the rest of the run until it gets up on her shoulders.
This thread will include the two “killings of unarmed Black men by two White cops,” which includes the killing of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the “terrorist shooting attack on Dallas Police” which killed five police and wounded seven others, done by a ex-US military Black militant armed with a sniper rifle and an automatic weapon who had obviously had good tactical training.
First of all, to dispense with the usual bullshit and lies.
These were not more cases of “White cops killing unarmed Black men.” In the case of Philando Castile, the cop was a Filipino, not a White man. I guess they are evil anti-Black racists too. I suppose their racism against Blacks is due to something called Filipino Supremacy, an epidemic and structural problem that runs all through US society.
Second of all, neither of these men were unarmed. They were both packing! Yes, they were both armed with handguns. In the sad case of Castile, he actually a concealed carry permit, which is one more reason why these stupid permits should be handed out very judiciously and not like candy as they are now.
In the case of the much worse behaving Alton Sterling, another Michael Brown-like “gentle giant” with a criminal record as long as a novella, he was also armed with a handgun, illegally as it turns out as he was breaking the law by carrying a handgun in public. Sterling also very seriously resisted arrest, and the police knew he had a gun. The fact that he had a gun on him, as in the sad case of Castile, was absolutely the main and probably only reason he got killed. So if you don’t want to get killed by cops and you’re a Black man, number one, don’t go out in public packing whether you have one of those Wild West style permits or not.
I genuinely feel sorry for the cops in the Dallas case, and I don’t even like cops. In fact, I pretty much hate cop,s and as it turns out I have some very good reasons for feeling that way considering I have been arrested a couple of times, and my hatred of cops goes back to those incidents. But I realize that they have a job to do, and of course I support them in that job. Also if you stay away from them and have as little dealings with them as possible, cops will not be much of a problem in your life. Right now, criminals are a much worse problem in my life than cops. Cops barely even rate as an annoyance. Most of the time, I hardly even hate them, and I even like them or feel neutral about them.
We can’t have people running around assassinating police officers. All you cop haters, let’s try an experiment. Let’s remove all the police from your city so you will be happy to be rid of those evil cops. You can guess what is going to happen to your city in the next several months, if it even lasts that long as a functioning metropolis. “We need cops, but they need to act better” is my position.
Second point, this was not terrorism. It’s never terrorism to shoot cops, especially when they are armed and in uniform. You can argue that this guy was not a guerrilla, but that is exactly what he was in fact. This man was at war with the police. He was a one-man insurgency. And this anti-police violence is starting to look like an insurgency or guerrilla war.
The abuse of this stupid term “terrorism” is truly unfortunate, but it is usually states who are the ones abusing the term. Any and all armed non-state actors and organizations are terrorists, bar none. Tell that to the Abraham Lincoln Brigades of the World War Two partisans in Europe and Asia. There are indeed terrorist groups who target civilian targets of no military significance, and that right there is the definition of terrorism to target a cop or any sort of soldier, off-duty or on.
As expected, the White nationalists have heralded this as the onset of the glorious RAHOWA (racial holy war) that they always long for. And yes, they do long for this. Hang out on their fora long enough, and you will see it, even on the rather dainty American Renaissance site. Their glorious RAHOWA is not here, nor is it coming anytime soon. Sorry, guys. Maybe later?
The case of Mr. Castile is a tragedy. He was not a bad person, but he did have a conviction for driving without a license. But I know some Whites close to me who have been charged with that crime also. I think the cop just badly screwed up in this case and thought Castile was going for his gun when in fact he was reaching for his wallet.
The case of Sterling is much more complex, and it looks like he was an armed man struggling very hard with the officers. I have no idea what to say about this except that it looks like another SNAFU case. I need to learn more about it. Sterling was a lousy person, but he didn’t deserve the death penalty for being a dirtbag.
Ok now, take it away, commenters!
Big G: If the demos keep pushing gun control the Republicans will win. The only republican to win any contested government seat anywhere was over the gun issue. Another William Playfair Web: certainly does cut into support of battlegrounds like Iowa, Virginia, N.C.
In W.V. that and coal are we are reddening by the hour.
She will win Iowa, Virginia and North Carolina. All three of those states are trending quite a bit more liberal over 20 years.
However, West Virginia is trending dramatically more conservative over the past 20 years. There are not a lot of states trending more conservative, but that is one of them. Tennessee is another.
Red states trending more conservative are West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Utah and Arizona. A few blue states are going a little more conservative, but they are still solid blue. I am thinking places like Massachusetts and Rhode Island are getting more conservative.
