Kamala Harris is “proud of Jacob Blake”

You have to hand it to the Democrats. VP Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, said that she was “proud of Jacob Blake when she visited him in hospital. At the very least we have to say her messaging is consistent. After all, she backed the Minnesota Freedom Fund which bailed out criminals, some charged with murder and rape. Jacob Blake’s father is an anti-Semite. It is amazing what makes an “incredible family” in America these days.

Maybe that is why she could show pride in Jacob Blake, who resisted arrest, fought with police officers (including headlocking one of them), ignored their instructions repeatedly while returning to his car for a weapon. He also was arrested in the past for brandishing a firearm in a bar while drunk, carrying a concealed firearm inside a public building, battery, assault, domestic violence and had an outstanding warrant for sexual assault and trespass.

The Democrats now claim they are for “law and order” which in reality is about as honest as Joe Biden is for “fracking.”

Kamala Harris’ hypocrisy in her own words can also be found here.

BLM asks Hollywood to strike over Jacob Blake

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors has requested that Hollywood join the strikes surrounding the police shooting of Jacob Blake. She said,

I think it’s time for talent, writers, executives, the guild and SAG to show up for Black lives as well…Join this strike. Now is the time and our movement is really looking to unions to step in in a particular way and say ‘We’re going to hold back on allowing for the exploitation and the degradation of Black communities to continue under our watch.’ I think Hollywood can really show up in this moment.

Who better to have join a cause than the world’s biggest hypocrites? The very people who turned a blind eye to the antics of Harvey Weinstein for the betterment of their own careers over decades. The same people who lectured mothers who drive their kids to sports practice in second-hand SUVs over climate change before they headed to their third homes via private jet. The same people who went vegan at the awards ceremony for sustainability.

The irony is that Cullors somehow believes that mainstream Americans will get chills down their spines if Hollywood makes threats to strike and cringeworthy videos from their gated 20 bedroom mansions. Has she not seen the audience figures or MLB, NBA, NFL, NLS etc?

Let’s not forget who Jacob Blake is. A man who had an outstanding arrest warrant for violating a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault.

The Kenosha police union claimed that Blake was armed with a knife at the time of the shooting — and had put one cop in a headlock and shrugged off two Taser attempts while resisting arrest.

Prior to this warrant, Blake was charged with brandishing a firearm in a bar while drunk, concealed carry of a firearm in a public building, battery, assault and domestic violence.

No matter one’s view on the use of ‘excessive force’ or not, it is not hard to imagine that Blake wouldn’t have been shot or end up paralyzed if he’d obeyed the instructions of the police. Period.

Still it wouldn’t surprise us if Hollywood rushes to the defence of such an outstanding member of society. It would be utterly consistent with all of the other hypocrisy and out-of-touch actions that define so many of them.

As for BLM, the organization’s reprehensible double standards are self-evident. When children were being murdered in Chicago, Cullors was utterly silent.

Californian crime prevention at its finest

You have to hand it to the compassionate State of California. During this pandemic, there is a zero-bail policy in force. That means the chap pictured, Dijon Landrum committed 3 crimes inside of 12 hours and was released each time with just a citation for the felonies committed. Glendora Police Dept listed the following.

“On Wednesday, April 29th, at about 8:28 a.m., our officers responded to a call of a male who was attempting to break into a vehicle in the 1400 block of South Grand Ave. When we arrived, we contacted Dijon Landrum, M/24, from Monterey Park, as he was attempting to drive away in a stolen vehicle. (The vehicle had been stolen out of East Los Angeles.) In addition to driving a stolen vehicle, he had stolen property and narcotics with him. Landrum was arrested. Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, he was issued a citation and released.

Approximately one hour after Landrum was released, at about 2:20 p.m., we received a call of an unknown male in the area of Bennett and Pennsylvania. This male was carrying a box and was walking through front yards of residences. It appeared that the male was placing items in this box as he was walking through the properties. When we arrived, we contacted Dijon Landrum a second time, and it appeared he had property in his possession that did not belong to him. Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, he was issued a citation, and the property was recovered by our officers.

Several hours later, at 8:49 p.m., we received a call of a vehicle that had just been stolen out of a parking lot in the 1300 block of South Grand Ave. Our officers were able to track the vehicle and found it westbound on the 10 freeway in the area of La Puente. With assistance from outside agencies (LA County Sheriffs and California Highway Patrol), they located the vehicle and a pursuit began. The pursuit ultimately ended in Pasadena, and Dijon Landrum was again arrested for being in possession of a stolen vehicle, and also for evading officers. Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, Landrum was released with his third citation of the day.

We want to thank all of the citizens that helped with this investigation, particularly those that called when they noticed something suspicious. If anyone has any additional information regarding any of these investigations or noticed any suspicious activity on home surveillance cameras during that time frame that may be related, please contact our dispatch at 626-914-8250.

Liberal lunacy. We thought catch and release was a fishing terminology…

Truth 1, Identity politics -1

Jussie Smollett gave us the perfect example of why identity politics is so poisonous. Here was a man potentially willing to make a claim against two innocent white people and jail them for up to 20 years for hate crimes not committed just to bump his salary and smear 63mn Trump supporters at the same time. Smollett appears to be exactly what he condemns.

Identity politics creates a marketplace for victimhood. CM made these very remarks as the #metoo market started to gain momentum 18 months ago. How many men have been wrongfully accused of crimes they haven’t committed? Has anything happened to those women who admitted they lied about SCJ Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulting them? Are we just to believe all women? All LGBT without question? Do activists truly speak on behalf of all minorities? Of course not. The truth is that the overwhelming majority of women, LGBT and minorities are fair minded people. Most don’t tie themselves up in this nonsense.

Look at how quickly Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Maxine Waters & Nancy Pelosi jumped behind Jussie to condemn the racist MAGA lynch mob. No facts. Just feelings. More ammo to condemn Trump. Instead of openly apologizing to those they hastily condemned, they did the exact opposite – dishonorably deleting the tweets which showed them up for the double standards they clearly uphold (and we worry about Trump’s twitchy finger on the nuke button with knee-jerkers like this?!?). So out of touch are the liberals who blindly backed the false claim, that Jussie Smollett even lost serial SJW Alyssa Milano’s support. That’s a miracle in itself.

What of the $100,000s the Chicago Police Department was forced to spend to investigate a lie? What thought did Smollett give real victims of crime to divert resources away just to promote his own career? The CPD Chief was bang on the money with the selfish act.

Smollett’s Class 4 felony carries up to a 1.5 year jail term. If he is found guilty, he should serve the maximum penalty possible. Being gay or black should play no part in sentencing. All crimes should be equal in front of the law regardless of political affiliation, race, gender, sexual proclivity or any other identity marker.

On the plus side, Smollett has substantially undermined the identity politics industry. This, like Covington, will be a gift that keeps giving for libertarians. The numerous Democratic presidential nominees only showed how dysfunctional they are to champion identity ahead of character. This wasn’t about policy and praying for a united America. It was all about tribalism. All they did was make their base out to be fools.

Some suggested there be leniency shown toward Smollett in sentencing. There in lies the problem. The media are so desperate to run narratives that fact checking be damned. So frothing at the mouth have they become that anything will do if it can smear those who hold different opinions. How soon the repentant media forgot the promises over their mistakes surrounding Covington before their derangement syndrome got the better of them again.

The really sad part is that the media were so desperate that Smollett’s original hoax was true that they fell apart when it was found to be a lie. Disappointment when the narrative fails to back up subjective views. The mainstream media want disunity, discord and animosity to feed their ratings. Enemy of the people? Certainly not friends.

Perhaps the irony in all of this is that had Smollett truly cared to stage a believable attack he should have paid white actors to do it. The problem might have have been that they cost substantially more than the two gentlemen he paid by personal cheque (talk about leaving paper trails). Proves the old adage, “you get what you pay for.” False economy in a nutshell.

Had Smollett embraced libertarian values of meritocracy, hard work and opportunity he may have earned his pay rise legitimately. By embracing liberal values of perpetual victimhood by throwing 63mn people under a bus, he has now self-inflicted his own demise. Just desserts, even in prison.

When it is citizens that require sanctuary

D7002D14-5FFC-433C-8898-B03A1E605F9E.jpeg

For all the loony decisions that are out there, how can jurors in a San Francisco court possibly acquit a person that was deported 5x for multiple felonies and awaiting a 6th deportation before he ended up murdering a citizen, Kate Steinle in 2015? The court ruled it wasn’t murder but an accident because he didn’t intend to fire the gun. So even if the perpetrator, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, didn’t intend to discharge the weapon in her direction he was none-the-less in possession of a weapon in a manner that had a risk of killing someone intentionally or not. It is irrelevant whether the bullet ricocheted. Steinle is needlessly dead. Not even a manslaughter charge and the taxpayer funded the defence.

For all the arguments supporting sanctuary cities, how little care for actual taxpaying and law abiding citizens can there be if convicted felons get hit with a feather duster while friends and family members end up being traumatized for life as a result? While he may face 3 years jail for possessing a stolen firearm, what society do people want when sentencing is so lenient for people who aren’t even legally allowed to be there?

Which again begs the question of illegal immigrants or refugees seeking asylum. If they are fleeing oppression or any place where their lives might be in danger, what on earth are these people doing trying to be anything other than grateful, courteous and law abiding individuals? Then you have to question the sanity of some Californians thinking these people deserve voting rights! Hmmm.

Even Zarate’s actions are dismissed as being a minute percentage it doesn’t prevent the fact that any country should maintain strict control of its borders and focus on helping those truly in need rather than turn a blind eye to those that exploit the social and economic generosity of others.

While some will no doubt use the Las Vegas shooting as a yardstick, the major difference is that the shooter purchased guns legally and was a citizen. That doesn’t justify what happened rather a shortcoming in gun laws that allowed bump stocks. If enough Americans don’t like it then they’ll force the change. Sloppy Immigration policies where poor screening and even worse border protection is self evident then that in and of itself is no less important a discussion to protect citizens of any country.
