911 call with petrified mother surrounded by mob. Dispatcher says police ordered not to help

This is what happens when concerned citizens who are being threatened learn from the 911 emergency hotline that the police have been asked to stand down and there is nothing they can do. The distressed mother was told to file a complaint with City Hall. Like that is what any rational person would do if the mob were standing on the hood of her car.

So annoyed were other residents of Fredericksburg, Virginia they decided to push back and the police department issued a public apology.

#DefundThePolice? Pffft.

One thing conservatives need to learn is to push back rather than just dismiss left-wing lunacy as something that will pass. We must beat them at their own game.

Brextension

Brexit is a total shambles. The delay timetable must be channeling British Rail. The Remainer PM Theresa May, instead of first negotiating terms with her own party and allies on a deal from the start and then taking to the EU, has repeatedly done the reverse. Then she wonders why she keeps losing support each time. Apart from the preposterous decision to rally support from Marxist Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, Theresa May has asked for yet another extension to Jun 30. EC President Donald Tusk is offering a year ‘flextension’. When will she realize that she has no authority?

Tory members have been cutting membership cards in half and posting to social media. This Telegraph letters page sums up the mood. The revolt seems less and less to do with Brexit per se and more to do with the peons feeling utterly betrayed by those they voted for. MPs who have backed the PM better start filling in their P45s. Voters will not let this slide.

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is rapidly gaining momentum, picking up disaffected voters. If he contests the EU elections his party should do very well.

The Tories are toast. For a party that should have its core in serving free markets and less government intervention it sure has forgotten its roots. For many Brits they didn’t leave the Tories. The Tories left them.
