Random Thoughts June 26, 2020

Note: I think, for a while at least, these “Random Thoughts” will replace my linkfests.  We’ll see how this evolves.  So far I’m liking the format – I get to expound more on a few topics rather than “quick hitting” when there are so many places to get lots of info like that, e.g., my I READ… list on the left.  Many of these places are where I get my info from anyway.  Please click through from here so they see traffic coming from me.
And stand by for blogroll / I READ maintenance & updates, coming soon!

Lead-in clickbait image from one of my Rule 5 posts, specifically done to get traffic:


Yes, I know it’s clickbait.  Deal with that.  Give me a better way to get eyeballs short of giving away money, I’ll do that instead.

Speaking of, here’s an excerpt from I’m ready to start shooting communists (bolding added):
The reality is the Left isn’t destroying the Lenin statue and is destroying statues of our Founding Fathers and anti-Slavery Americans because they agree with Lenin and hate America.
I’m tired of trying to debate with these people.
The only arguments I have for people who defend statues of Lenin and defend destroying statues of Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln should be made 55 grains at a time.
Looks like my early-blogging-career prophecy is about to come true.  Or my fears here; The .223 Solution.

Any link in yellow is a link to a purchase that supports me.  Any link in cyan is to something I’ve posted previously.  And anything in magenta is an organization that – IMHO – deserves a donation or paid subscription.
And please do check out my last five non-Rule Five / non-LINKFEST posts (any multi-part posts count as one; quickie-posts put together and counted as one):

Three blast-from-the-past posts – picked at my whim:
Speaking of the past: Volume I and Volume II.  (If I get inspired I may just fold them all into one…)
And my latest LINKFEST compilation (on hiatus as above), plus don’t forget my CARTOONS.  This was my first cartoon, and is still one of my favorites.



And for those interested, my last two Rule Five posts (again, preview images are clickbait, I know… so sue me) – and a notice on Rule Five posts in general:

A PLEA FOR HELP
I need a citable source for this alleged Heels-in-the-air Harris quote.
I fully believe she said this.  I want to see it in situ, so that I know it's true.  In general, please, I beg you – VET your memes.  E.g., the meme where AOC is promoting states to keep locked down is apparently false.  Do not be surprised if the Left is making these too, ones that appeal to what we want to believe is true, and then use the "big reveal" of their falsity to discredit us.

A man withdraws close to a half a million?  In cash?  Even assuming I had that much to withdraw, can you imagine the red flags that would be flying thick-and-fast if I pulled out that much in cash?  I’ve read about people getting $20K in cash (OK, in the US, so oranges vs. kumquats – but still similar systems in place) and having to go through enormous paperwork, etc.  False flag event?  And what about this?
[The body of 'George Floyd' that was lifted onto the gurney had no legs / 0:35]
And while I’d opine the video and resultant pictures are blurry enough that it’s not 100% certain, it appears that the Floyd being arrested had hair… and the figure on the ground does not (and the shortness of black hair is also a confounding factor).  And this is beyond disturbing; (WATCH) Additional camera views of George Floyd arrest (READ) Arrest complaint against ex-officer (bolding added)
Floyd fell to the ground again and Chauvin pinned him down with his leg on Floyd's neck, a restraint tactic that police are "taught is dangerous."
Floyd stopped moving. Kueng then checked for a pulse and couldn't find one. Chauvin kept his knee on Floyd's neck.
Two minutes later, Chauvin removed his knee from Floyd’s neck as medics arrived. He was pronounced dead at Hennepin Healthcare.
Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Nearly three minutes of that time was after Floyd became unresponsive.
A man, handcuffed, prone, is unresponsive and you keep kneeling on him?  And none of your supposedly-trained coworkers say f*cking-boo about it even after nobody finds a pulse?  (Comments at this post indicate it’s The Rule that a captive is the responsibility of the officer(s) who have him.)
In general, we’re being played.  And while this is clearly just a dramatization, it’s accurate to how the enemedia is playing this:

NITZAKHON PREDICTS:
And wait until the acquittal / mistrial comes.  In September / October.  Bank on it.  Same with the “felony murder” charge for the cop in Atlanta.  No way, IMHO, that results in a conviction.  And BOTH will be timed to do maximum damage to Trump electorally.

I have been told on LinkedIn by multiple lily-white Leftists that people like Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele, Larry Elder, and others are not “genuine blacks” and should not be speaking for the black community.
The arrogance, the sheer unmitigated gall, of Leftists to be the determiner of who is “legitimate” black should tell you that they still think they own black people.  And somewhat related:

And I’m about 1/4 of the way through this book by Sowell:
With some other books by him, Williams, and Elder:

This is fascinating.  Troubling, but fascinating; HOW THE DEMOCRATS COLLUDE TO ENABLE VOTER FRAUD:
One of the most pernicious phenomena of modern times is the collusive lawsuit. This is how it works: a left-wing organization sues a government agency that is also controlled by the left. The lawsuit alleges that the agency is obliged to do something that the agency would like to do, but the Democrats can’t get it passed. Then the parties–supposedly adverse, but actually in collusion–“settle” the case by having the agency agree to do what it wanted to do all along. If all goes well, a court enters an order enforcing the settlement. So the net effect is that a policy that the Democrats couldn’t get passed is now a court-ordered mandate. This happens often.
I keep saying this – Leftists are MISSIONARIES.  And while they do seem insane:
You cannot underestimate them.  They are shrewd, and they are committed.  (Aside: in my youth a family friend went off-the-edge insane.  But as we wondered what we could do, he was still very clear in some ways, like making my parents swear they wouldn’t contact his family as to his condition – they did it anyway.)  And something I learned from here:
is that it’s often not arms, or size of forces, but rather the side that wants it the most that ends up winning.  Just go watch the videos here (HT Peter Grant):
Pulling the videos to post, but the links remain, so as to preserve the “credit chain”:

They’ve been at this for a LONG TIME.  They have Marxianic Zeal.  They are TRUE BELIEVERS in the idea that they can do Socialism “right” this time:

They have a plan.  They have been working that plan for decades.  The time to stop giving them even a scintilla of the benefit of the doubt has long past:

Can you just feel the wonderful benefits of being diverse and multi-cultural, and want more of them to come to the West?

NITZAKHON QUOTABLE:
Many years ago, as an atheist and then-still liberal, I was concerned that the boogie-man of the religious right would attempt to purge people like me.  The reality of today’s situation is 180 degrees from that: the Atheistic Left is attempting that purge in actuality.  Of religious people.  Of Conservatives.  Today’s Left has become the very thing I feared of the Right.

A noble sentiment.  A pity such a seed will fall on dry and infertile minds.  Related, a video here:
And check out some of the videos in the comments at this tweet – black MAGA supporters.
Related is this must-read piece at Bastion of Liberty: Provocation And Counterattack
Note the part about the Chi-com weakening of POWs.  Same technique in sales.  Get a small concession, then another comes just a little more easily, and so on, until the sale is made.  As above, the Left is insane, but not stupid.

Remember, we have an enemy in the Left that is without honor, decency, ethics, or morality.

Fantastic application of Alinsky Rule 5:
I tend to be very caustic, even on LinkedIn under my own name.  I love-love-love poking these Leftist hoity-toity intellectuals, getting them to respond, and then deflating them with links and evidence.  Not that they, specifically, will accept it… but it makes them look like fools in their own feeds.

The mob doesn’t stop at statues. Rioters have already torched police precincts and low-income housing in Minneapolis. Churches and synagogues have been vandalized. Next, perhaps, the mob will target the homes of police officers. And soon enough, the mob may come for you, and your home, and your family.
Like I said in a very early essay in 2017 (link in original):
In the wake of Charlottesville and the seemingly-overnight eruption of violence, the tearing down of statues, the ramped-up burning of American flags, and what feels like an explosion of both anti-police and person-to-person violence, and even more dangerous rhetoric, I will open by quoting a good friend of mine who opined many months prior to any of this: “America has not been this divided since the Civil War”. He is a student of history and an all-around pretty sharp guy and is, I fear, right.
Sounds familiar, right?  Almost as though this is a systematic plan of action for the Left.
I asked my next-door neighbor what he thought if it comes to our neighborhood.  “Shoot first, ask questions later” was his reply.  I think he and I need to talk more, and find others who think similarly.
