It cracks me up

By Patrick Van Roy On June 4th, 2020 at 4:38 pm

I start my day with a pot of coffee and the Press. I scan a couple of dozen publications and pick out what catches my eye to read. If you check my twitter feed you can what I’ve read that morning before I start my day by the first 10 articles I’ve tweeted.

One of the advantages of this is not just the stories I spend the time to read, but viewing that many publications across the spectrum I get a feel for the general spin of the day. There is a pattern that has amplified over the past 3 months, it’s been there for the past 4 years, but has intensified greatly over the past 3mths.

The left and the Democrats some how have the distinct impression that they are winning the battle for hearts and minds. It cracks me up.

The past 3 months have been a living hell for most Americans. They locked us in our homes, took away our ability to earn, took away our ability to visit family, to go to church, even go to the Park or Beach. They’ve arrested people for walking with their children, couples sitting together on a park bench, and even for going to church. All while allowing Animals out of Jail because they may catch a cold.

Then these same Officials have allowed 10s of thousands of Animals to burn and pillage for an entire week.

Yet if you scan the headlines the Majority of the press blame Trump. You also see a constant flow of headlines about his losing pol numbers, who in his own administration think he’s wrong, and a 100 other little tidbits of how horrible everything is and how it’s all Trumps fault.

It’s a nice narrative, but that’s all it is a narrative. There is no meat in it.

The majority of Americans A) Want to get back to work, B) Don’t blame Trump for the Lockdown, and C) Blame the Democrats for the Riots. Yet the Democrats and the Press think they are winning.

I make no predictions about the coming election, I just can’t wait though till the day after. I got a feeling the results are going to be Interesting.

May you live in Interesting Times.

George who ?

A Federal Protective Services officer has been killed in protests after two officers suffered gunshot wounds in California.

Two Federal Protective Service officers were shot during a protest in Oakland in California on Friday night, police told CNN. One of the officers died from his injuries.  “Two Federal Protective Services officers stationed at the Oakland Down Town Federal Building suffered gunshot wounds. Unfortunately, one succumbed to his injury,” the police department said in a statement.

No one will know this Officers name, no one will set up a GoFundMe Page, and more important NO ONE will burn and rob over his death.

These Riots have nothing to do with race.

The death of George Floyd, who was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin was a tragedy. A Tragedy acknowledged by ALL. There were no separation of sides. No closing of ranks. The death of this man in this manner was condemned by everyone on all sides. The country was United in the condemnation.

That Unity was lost as soon as the Riots began. Riots are not Protests. Burning and Robbing are not Protests. Riots in cities not involved in the incident are not Protests. This an organized front of paid Provocateurs whose only goal is chaos.

This is only going to escalate. The only way to stop it is going to be violence directed against those breaking the Law.

It worked in Philly under Rizzo, it worked in NY under Giuliani. You use the Police the way they were meant to be used. You deploy the Riot tactics. Horses, and snow fences to isolate the crowds and then you isolate the very few individuals that are provoking the violence, and arrest them. It works. It has worked every time it is used.

When you allow RIOTERS to “vent” you are not relieving the pressure, you are pouring gasolene on the Fire.

It is now time for not the THREAT of violence from the Police, but the organized application of it. Once it has reached the point it is now at the only way it ends is with force, and force will be applied.

 

Not everyone in Minnesota is rioting

7 hours ago in St Paul

This is not a racial issue as everyone is trying to push. This is an education issue. The poor man was killed by that Cop. He kept his Knee on his neck for 7 minutes and 53 seconds. While the man could speak he told them he couldnt breath. You can restrain a suspect by placing your knee on his chest, back or shoulders. If it slips onto his neck it can not stay there for longer than 45 seconds. That is written rule for that restraint.

Now lets look at a few things. This City is Democrat Controlled and has been for almost 100yrs. The Police Chief is Black, the force and the city are your typical large urban American city. Which means there is a large section of the population that are uneducated, unemployed on drugs and violent. That population here is both Black and White. If you look at the rioters you will see all races.

What you are seeing is the lost of our society. Not a race war or riot. The gentleman that was killed had a record as long as your arm and was being arrested for a crime. The cop needs to be prosecuted but this was no angel pulled from a street corner by a pack of racist cops. This was a criminal who died while being arrested.

The excessive force was thankfully caught on tape, because this cop has been brought up on charges for excessive force multiple times. Amy Klobuchar declined to Prosecute him when she was the cities prosecutor, gues she won’t be Joes VP…

However those rioting there and now in other cities aren’t rioting for any injustice. They are rioting because they can. They can use this mans death as an excuse to rob and burn. Not to seek Justice but to profit off the death. They have been educated that they can do it and get away with it.

The Gentleman in the clip above are the educated, family oriented Law Abiding Citizens. Guarding their livelihood from the miscreants…… It’s not racial to them.

When I’m 64……

Graham urges senior judges to step aside so Trump, GOP can replace them.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is publicly urging judges in their mid- to late 60s to consider stepping aside ahead of Election Day to help ensure that their seats could be filled by Republicans.

Asked during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt if he knew if any judges would take “senior status,” a semi-retirement status that opens up their seat, Graham said, “If you are, take it.”

“This is an historic opportunity. We’ve put over 200 federal judges on the bench. I think 1 in 5 federal judges are Trump appointees. … So if you’re a circuit judge in your mid-60s, late 60s, you can take senior status; now would be a good time to do that if you want to make sure the judiciary is right of center. This is a good time to do it,” Graham added.

He also encouraged judges who want to make sure a successor can be confirmed by the November election to announce their plans to retire sooner rather than later, adding that he would “need some time” to get them through the committee.

So this 64yr old career politician scumbag has “Served” for 27 years in Congress….. If anyone should RETIRE his name should be at the Top of the List.

No one more than me would like to see more constitutionalist Judges appointed to the Bench, but I am outraged that this leach who has spent his life sucking at the Taxpayer teet has the nerve to tell anyone to retire.

Take your own advice Senator, and don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out…..

Ahhh the first pin falls

The spin is built into the wackjob minds of those that suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Trump ordered it, Barr did it on Trumps orders. and a 1000 other little denials of the TRUTH will now be spewed by the mentally afflicted.

The TRUTH is General Flynn was entrapped and blackmailed by James Comey at the orders of Barrack Obama. The Obama Administration had been running a KGB style operation called Hurricane Crossfire. That used Honey Traps, Foreign Spies, and Falsified Evidence to try and Frame a Candidate for President. General Flynn was the only member of the incoming Administration with any Capital Hill experience.  Not just Capital Hill experience, but experience in running the Intelligence Industry. There would be no way to hide their operation that was still running even after Trump won the Presidency, it was crucial Flynn be removed. So they tried to entrap him, and when he wouldn’t go for it they threatened his son. As any good father would he was willing to sacrifice himself rather than put his Son in the hands of Obama’s KGB.

This is just the first piece to fall into place, the rest of the puzzle is being assembled by Durham.

Here is the info from the AG that made the evaluation to drop the case.

The DOJ said in a court filing Thursday that it no longer believed it could make a case against the former three-star Army general.

“The Government is not persuaded that the January 24, 2017 interview was conducted with a legitimate investigative basis and therefore does not believe Mr. Flynn’s statements were material even if untrue,” the department said in its motion. “Moreover, we [do] not believe that the Government can prove either the relevant false statements or their materiality beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The department’s motion will need to be approved by a judge.

Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney in St. Louis who Attorney General William Barr had tapped to review Flynn’s case, said he had recommended dropping the charges.

“Through the course of my review of General Flynn’s case, I concluded the proper and just course was to dismiss the case,” Jensen said in a statement. “I briefed Attorney General Barr on my findings, advised him on these conclusions, and he agreed.”

Living on Covid time…..

What a beautiful day, it hit 70F today in Pennsylvania. The Sun was shining to perfect to sit in doors. I wandered down the road about 40 minutes to French Creek State Park Hopewell Forge Lake. I saw a half dozen father’s and son’s on the side of the bank engaging the bonding ceremony of drowning worms under a little red and white bobber.

A mother with two 5 to 7 year old boys was doing her best to keep them at least moving in the same direction, preferably not into the water. Elderly couples walking with their dogs, even one whole family of 10 all ages sitting where the creek fed into the lake eating a picnic.

I grabbed my rod lit a nice Dominican Churchill and walked, looking for clearings in the bramble where I could get to the water’s edge. after hitting a few spots I worked my way towards a long flat shallow area the summer weedmat is just beginning to grow. I tossed a floating popping hollow frog working it over the weeds and more importantly the pockets and BAM!

A nice female Largemouth Bass fattening up in prespawn devoured my Frog….. it made the perfect moment. I of course let her go, and as I had reached my physical limit I headed back to the car….. finishing my cigar with a nice satisfied smile on my face…… Living on Covid Time.

Find some humor

I’m sorry this is wrong on so many levels, but I loved it.

What Next ?

By Patrick Van Roy On March 30th, 2020 at 12:47 pm

The World is in lockdown as we hunkerdown to prevent a world wide catastrophe by this so called Pandemic. Don’t get me wrong it fits the definition of one, but not the deaths associated with one. COVID19 is SARS2 both are variants of the 7 main varieties of the Flu, the majority of which most of us have a certain level of immunity. The reason this may hit very high numbers of dead, and by high numbers I meen around 200-500,000 world wide nowhere near the 50-100 million killed by the Spanish Flu is because NO ONE has any level of immunity and the weak and infirm will get the Chinese Flu develop pneumonia and die.

That however whether I’m on the money with my estimates or totally wrong in them, that part of our problem is just that 1st part of it. The real problems come next.

The cure for this germ has been to shut down the world. Business WW has shut down, economies are in free fall and by the end of April that will be the real catastrophe.  In history when this happens War follows. Every major collapse of society on this scale has caused one.

I ask this audience, what is the condition of your country, does it have the reserves, was it financially stable before this catastrophe, and the most important thing does it have the flexibility and leadership to recover ? Most of Europe does not. That is where your concern should be. What have your nations done in preparation to turn everything back on ?

If I am totally wrong and this thing does kill millions that will make turning things back on even more difficult. So as you sit in your homes surrounded by your loved ones ask, has your government set in motion the things they will need to do to recover and guarantee those children playing in the other rooms future ?

That is the question and the worry, what happened the last World Depression ? How did where you live now fare then ?

We all know how to get through the next month, and some of us will get sick. It’s a virus no matter what we do we’re going to get exposed, just like we all get exposed to every flu, every year. This one will be back again, the next time it won’t be as bad. The thing is what will this event trigger, and what have your leaders done to deal with it.

Ask, don’t just sit there and whine on line. It is time now to start pressing those who command the reigns of power “What are your plans ?” and ask yourself do you know, and if you don’t know why not?

Stay safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Sane, but it is time to start asking….. What Next ?
