Pittsburgh, the Caravan, predictions, and foil hats

@Odysseus and others; for some reason I’m unable to comment on my own blog!  So please take this as my reply to your comment on yesterday’s post.

While most American Jews have traditionally leaned Left (sometimes, IMHO, to the point of tipping over) there has been, even at my Left-leaning Synagogue, an increasing discomfort with the Left’s open embracing of anti-Israel and even openly anti-Semitic persons and candidates.  Nothing truly discussed, but I’ll opine that I can tell there’s something “in the air”.  That discomfort is also present in the various Jewish-related news sources I read.

So how conveeeeenient that a white man railing against Jews goes on a mass murder spree just days before the election.  The message is clear: Ignore the anti-Semitism behind our curtain because look, a loony-tune hates you because Trump told him to.

As I said in my just-prior post, my Marine friend predicted something like this.  As have several other of my friends.  And consider:

The Invader Caravan: wiped from the news even as it advances on our borders; swept off the headlines by...

The bomber: who I think, as do many others, stinks to high heaven (and on a side bet, I predict will be fatally shanked before he gets to trial) - more here and here.  All the flaws, inconsistencies, and inconvenient questions about him are swept off the headlines by…

The Synagogue massacre: not only does gun control raise its head just before the election, but this is a message to American Jews that “Trump’s ‘good people’ are coming to get you”!  And while I’ve said I don’t particularly care for Vox Day*, he too is saying it (link in original, bolding added):

Apparently the Fake Bombs didn't work, so Plan B is in effect:

Eight people have been killed and a number of others injured after a shooting situation at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday. KDKA’s Meghan Schiller reports that a suspect, a heavy-set white male with a beard, has surrendered. The SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured. It is unclear the extent of his injuries.

Shooting people is bad and all bad things are caused by the bad orange man calling the media fake, therefore all good-thinking people must vote for Democrats. It is science.

And now my prediction (and I pray I’m wrong).  Before the election we’ll see another “event” but this time targeted at blacks who are, increasingly, turning from the Democrats as the Trump economy is giving them record low unemployment, the #walkaway movement is making significant inroads especially among blacks (from what I read), and spokesmen like Kanye and Candace Owens are effective communicators who are helping them leave the Left’svote plantation.  And the message after it, 24/7 until the election, will be “Trump’s ‘good people’ are coming to get you”!  (Just as with Saint Trayvon of the Holy Hoodie; had George Zimmerman been named per his Hispanic ethnicity, e.g., Jorge Sanchez, it wouldn’t have been a local story for a day or so.  Zimmerman’s white-sounding name was manna from heaven for the Left who drummed, constantly, “Whitey’s coming to get you”!)

Sarah Hoyt predicted this about the caravan when it reaches the US border (bolding added):

Also, while at it, and I’m putting this here AND in PJ because I want my marker down ahead of time: if they get to the border and there’s ANY confrontation, a pregnant woman will get shot.
How do I know that? Aren’t there way more men than women, and aren’t only some women pregnant? Aren’t the odds staggeringly against it?
I know it because EVERY TIME there’s a big confrontation staged by communists (and the left are ultimately that) a pregnant woman gets shot.  Since it’s so against the odds, I think that if needed the left shoots the pregnant woman themselves.  But I learned this through countless incidents.  EVERY TIME.  And then there’s hagiography built around this woman and the left advances a bit more.

We know, through the example of history, that there are people and organizations capable of killing innocents to achieve their political ends.  That one human being can consider and do this is bad enough.

But take a look at the timing of many mass shooting (and other mass-casualty) events.  Consider the predictions made by my friends – and me!  And now jump to Big Conspiracy territory: that the Left / deep state has, somehow, the ability to set off people deliberately.

That is truly scary.  But perfectly in line with the Big Conspiracy: something so awful that most people say “That can’t be true”!  But the more I watch what’s going on, the more I am convinced it is true; the timing of these events, multiple times, is just too pat.
As my friend said, citing his military experience: Once is incidence, twice is coincidence, three times is an enemy action.  Looking back over the years, there are a whole lot more than three...  Tremble at that thought, and shudder at what’s coming.
I fear this Yeats poem’s dread words are going to prove frighteningly prophetic, and sooner than we think:

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.

The Left believes in power.  Only power.  They are missionaries per David Horowitz, locked on their desire to create a one-world Socialist government that will rid the world of hunger, want, hatred, violence, and every ill that has ever plagued humanity.  They truly believe they can accomplish this: they are seeking it, all their thought is bent on it… and they will rationalize every evil deed to bring it about.


There is no safety for Conservatives but to assume every evil of Liberals.


 * I do not have to like a person to recognize a keen intellect who says thought-provoking things; nor am I obliged to agree with everything someone says to, again, recognize a sharp mind.


  1. On a more practical level I can't speak to why Synagogues don't "Tyle the lodge", I can say that with even some pretty conservative churches there's a nasty combination of normalcy bias and "the Good Lord will save us." arrogance/fatalism.

    1. Better get close before that drawn sword in their hand can do much good. My shul has "greeters" who, as another Right-leaning Jew who also CCWs said, will be speed bumps to someone with ill intent.

      We don't go much; too much activity with the fam. But in a discussion with the wife the other night I'm hoping to push us towards a harder-core shul. Ideally, truly Orthodox. Since she's not Jewish, the kids really should get a full-on Orthodox conversion.
