Dem runs over Republican over political argument

BreitbartAccording to a local North Dakota report, early Sunday morning a man called 911 and admitted to the hit and run of an 18-year-old. His motive? A “political argument” with a Republican.

Forty-one-year-old Shannon Brandt said he was afraid 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was “part of a Republican extremist group and that he was afraid they were ‘coming to get him.'”

So he allegedly killed Ellingson with his car.

Not the first casualty in the slowly boiling pot of civil war. I hope he will be the last. But I don't think that's likely.

And he is already out of jail.

Canada's parliament upholds Emergency Act

Conservative TreehouseThe Communists (NDP) and the Socialists (LPC) united in the Canadian House of Parliament today to vote their support for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s deployment of the Emergency War Measures Act.

The vote was 185 in support and 151 against, as the Canadian government now officially declares war against citizens who protested against government.

The parliamentary support of the Emergency War Measures Act now gives the government the authority to hunt down their political opposition, arrest any dissident member who may have petitioned their government with grievances against the covid mandates, and begin seizing the financial assets of anyone who might still challenge the government mandates of Justin Trudeau.

The government of Justin Trudeau has already announced their intent to make the authority within the emergency act a permanent status in Canadian law. A state of economic civil war now exists in Canada.

The DiplomadThe destruction of Canadian democracy continues apace. The Reichstag Parliament has extended the Enabling Act Emergency powers, giving the Fuehrer Prime Minister the legal and political cover to continue dismantling Canadian democracy. I am no expert on Canadian politics, but some of the statements by party leaders were stunning; they voted to give Herr Trudeau the powers of a dictator in order to avoid the collapse of the government and the calling of elections. What? Isn't that one of the features that parliamentary government supporters always cite as the superiority over our Presidential system? If the PM loses support, elections are called. They don't have to wait as we do with Biden.

Canada has fallen. Putin has, evidently, taken what parts of Ukraine he desires. It appears things are about to get even more exciting. The WEF's Great Reset now stands revealed as yet another plan to take over the world, albeit one that has seen more success than most.

AZ Audit news heats up

Uncover DCThe Arizona State Senate issued new subpoenas on Monday to complete the Maricopa County forensic audit. Both Dominion Voting Systems and the Maricopa Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) are now in their crosshairs.

This is the first time Senate President Karen Fann and Arizona Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Petersen have targeted Dominion for information. Both the MCBOS and Dominion have been requested to appear on August 2 at 1 p.m. at the state capitol.

Enforcing the subpoena may be more difficult with one GOP holdout rumored.

In apparent response to the subpoenas, Twitter suspended nine accounts associated with several state audits. Once more Big Tech chooses censorship, a single day after announcing a partnership with the intelligence community that was undoubtedly unofficially in place long before the announcement.

TX bar association investigates AG Paxton over voter fraud lawsuit

Just The NewsTexas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton is the subject of a professional misconduct investigation by the Texas bar association regarding his assertions about fraud election after President Trump lost the 2020 reelection bid.

The claim is that allegations of voter fraud were "misleading and in bad faith". That strikes me as being more in the character of telling someone they aren't allowed to challenge the king than a serious objection, but the use of the bar association is designed to shut down the use of courts to address election fraud. Which, if successful, will just take away one more legal avenue for the people to use in seeking redress of grievances.

Pretty soon there will be no legal avenues at all.

And what happens then?

Supreme Court declines to hear Texas case

Fox News“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the Supreme Court’s order reads. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

The order does not foreclose any other pending or future election appeals at the Supreme Court, but time is running out. The states meet next week on Dec. 14 for the Electoral College exercise. And on Jan. 6 there will be a joint session of the House and Senate to count the electoral votes and certify President-elect Joe Biden as the winner.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas said they would have heard the case -- without granting other relief, like issuing an injunction on electoral proceedings. They added that they expressed "no view on any other issue."

There are other cases still alive. But the denial here of a clean, coherent case to address everything at once by a 7-2 vote is extremely disappointing. In reply I can only quote another judge:

Borepatch quoting KozinskiThe Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed - where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

The Supreme Court has just declared that it has no courage to oppose a blatant electoral theft. Where, now, do honest citizens go for relief from a government that has refused to provide for an honest election? When you remove all legal, peaceable remedies, when you silence the opposition so their voices go unheard, when you corrupt the elections such that the party of government always wins, what then is left to an honest man who will not bend the knee to a tyrant?

House Majority Leader's office vandalized

Daily CallerHouse Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office in California was vandalized Monday, according to an Instagram post by the congressman.

McCarthy, whose local office is in Bakersfield, Calif., posted photos of the suspects and some of the damage. Two young men were caught on surveillance camera outside of the office, which had its window smashed in by a large boulder.

“Does anyone know these two guys? They threw a boulder thru our office window and took office equipment,” McCarthy wrote on his Instagram account.

I wonder if these people will ever be caught and publicly identified? Watergate was a "third rate burglary" until the President got involved in trying to cover it up; so will there be any connections to the Democrat party found here?

We'll probably never know, because the media doesn't like to ask those questions, never mind look for answers.

Meanwhile, a security guard at a Washington DC Fox affiliate had to shoot someone breaking into their studio.

Daily WireOne Fox News 5 anchor reported, “We have had a shooting here at the Fox 5 studios. This happened shortly after 3:00 this afternoon. What we are being told at this point is that there was somebody who was trying to get in to our front lobby, which is what you are seeing on your screen there right now. You can see the police tape that is up around the building, quite an active scene here, someone tried to get in from what we understand, was able to get through one door, we have a double set of doors, and tried to get into the building, but a security guard that is employed here was able to was able to fire off a shot."

It seems like there are incidents of political violence almost daily now. Some days are quiet and some days have multiple incidents to make up for the quiet. What I almost never see are incidents of political violence from the right directed at the left. Sometimes, briefly, the media tries to paint a mass shooter as being politically motivated from the right, but closer examination invariably (so far) has shown they were just nuts with incomprehensible political ideologies.

This seems like a significant escalation from the usual. Assuming it's not simply a false flag, someone prepared an explosive device and placed it in a location where it could be found by the target, which was presumably the left-wing billionaire George Soros himself (it was found in his mailbox). The employee who found it was suspicious and NYPD detonated the device.

We see so many fake hate crime incidents and so few real ones from the right that I seriously question whether the situation is as it appears to be.

But if it is, we're a lot closer to a domestic civil war than we were yesterday.

New York man charged with threatening Senators over Kavanaugh

CNNA New York man was arrested and charged Friday by federal prosecutors with threatening to assault and murder two US senators in retaliation for their support of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court. The man, Ronald DeRisi, left more than 10 threatening and "expletive-laced" voicemails for the two senators beginning September 27, according to the complaint unsealed Friday by prosecutors in the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York.

I don't really have a problem with people swearing at their senators. That's free speech. Threatening them is another matter, and we've seen a lot of people crossing that line lately. Not just in phone calls, either. Republicans are getting driven from restaurants by angry mobs, attacked at home, targeted by letters laced with deadly poison, their trucks set on fire, and shot at on baseball fields.

If there are Democrats who do not endorse violence, it's time for them to start calling out both their colleagues and their leadership to make that clear.

I'll do my part. In my local neighborhood, people are complaining that their Beto signs are getting stolen or torn down. "Beto" is a stage name for Robert O'Rourke, a privileged white male who tried to flee the scene of his DUI and wants to impose gun control on Texas and everywhere else.

Republicans: Please stop stealing Beto signs. Allow your neighbors to exercise their free speech rights and support stupid candidates without becoming victims of theft or intimidation.

Democrats: Please stop trying to murder Republicans.

GOP office in New York vandalized

Daily CallerThe Metropolitan Republican Club on Manhattan’s Upper East Side was vandalized Thursday night with broken windows, a spray-painted anarchy sign, and a threatening message that the “attack is merely a beginning.”

The building is the headquarters of the Manhattan Republican Party and the New York City regional office for the New York Republican Party.

This sort of thing is far from uncommon. Republican signs on college campuses get vandalized regularly. Free speech and association are under definite threat these days. And yet Republicans (so far) keep winning elections. The discrepency is the result of a massive media propaganda campaign designed to keep ordinary people -- Republicans -- ashamed and in the closet politically. Search engines and social media are working other angles. This blog is my way of fighting that.

UPDATE: Possible poisoned letter sent to Senator Susan Collins. And I forgot to mention the recent ricin attacks on Trump and Cruz, or the truck burned for having Trump bumper stickers. Maybe Hillary should call for peace and stop the violence?

UPDATE: Two Republican candidates attacked.

Truck burned for Trump bumper stickers

Fox NewsA truck adorned with several stickers supporting President Trump was reportedly set ablaze and vandalized with spray paint outside a bar in Washington state, in what the owner believes was a targeted attack.

"If you say anything that someone doesn't like, you are ultimately a target," Johnny MacKay told KOIN-TV of Portland, Ore. "You're automatically the enemy and they have to hurt you."

When you demonize your political opponents as being literally Hitler, as the Left and the media have been doing for years now, there are consequences.

Civil War?

WFLAA Winter Haven man was arrested on Thursday after posting on his Facebook page that he was going to shoot members of Congress and their families, depending on which way the Supreme Court justice confirmation vote went.

He also allegedly threatened to shoot any local or federal law enforcement who responded to his home on Jim Keen Boulevard.

Unlike the usual examples, this guy appears to be on the right and is actually a gun owner. He says he was making fun of liberals. His friends seem to support that.

I'm posting this to note that the violence is escalating on both sides. Even if this guy wasn't serious (and since he was arrested without incident, I'm inclined to think that's the right take... but that doesn't necessarily mean he shouldn't face consequences for the threats), the constant actual violence and threats coming from the left are starting to get a response on the right. And that's a significant danger signal.

Multiple ricin attacks in the mail

There do seem to be a lot of these ricin attacks, at least when you extend the timeframe. Sometimes years go by between attacks but they keep coming. It makes you wonder if the FBI is ever bothering to investigate.

The latest targets are Senator Ted Cruz and the Pentagon.

The timing of the ricin attacks so far seems to involve domestic politic tensions of the left-wing variety. Putting Cruz in the hospital, or even just giving him a good scare, might be the one vote the left needs to stop Kavanaugh.. and why not go after the one Senator you hate the most, in that case?

When you dehumanize your political opponents and characterize their ideas as violence, some people are going to behave violently. I'm more and more convinced this isn't just considered acceptable to the left. More and more it seems to be the intended result.

Like the attack on Steve Scalisce, these ricin attacks seem to disappear down the memory hole very quickly.

UPDATE: Trump, Mattis targeted.

UPDATE: Arrest made.

Black Lives Matter now tracking down police officers at weddings

Washington TimesBlack Lives Matter protesters on Saturday crashed the wedding venue of one of the two police officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark in Sacramento earlier this year.

A small group of protesters tracked down the officer’s wedding at a vineyard about an hour outside of Sacramento and showed up just hours before he was set to say, “I do,” a local CBS affiliate reported.

This whole thing where leftists track down people they don't like in their private and personal lives and harass them needs to stop. It needs to stop because it is going to get someone killed, probably by a complete stranger who read about some other complete stranger on the internet and got mad.

UPDATE: And a leftist arrested for soliciting the murder of an ICE agent, not to mention an actual Dem candidate endorsing the beating of Senator Rand Paul.

To borrow a phrase, the news reads like that part of the history books that come immediately before the chapter with all the maps and arrows.

Attorney-Client privilege no longer a thing, I guess?

Hot Air quoting NYSlimesPresident Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording.

The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them…

Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed the payments with Mr. Cohen on the tape but said the payment was ultimately never made. He said the recording was less than two minutes and demonstrated that the president had done nothing wrong.

So Trump talks to his lawyer, Cohen, who records it for unknown reasons. Prosecutors with ties to Mueller then raid Cohen's office to get the recording in a clear violation of attorney-client privilege. The recording then somehow ends up in the hands of the New York Times, which prints a story on it because it embarrasses the President even if no payment ended up happening and nothing illegal was done.

This bullshit is going to continue until the Trump admin finds some way to push back against the people doing it.

Scott Pruitt resigns citing unprecedented attacks

Washington Times“It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it as a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also because of the transformative work that is occurring,” he wrote in his resignation letter obtained by Fox News. “However the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us.”

Trump's announcement on Twitter was very positive about Pruitt and doesn't suggest Trump asked for the resignation. I think Pruitt really is fed up with the attacks and threats on his family. Which the left will likely read as blood in the water, and swarm on the remaining targets.

The people doing the stalking and harassment and threats and actual violence need to be jailed.

Teacher harasses public official during dinner

New York PostEnvironmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt became the most recent Trump administration figure to get an earful while trying to get a mouthful at a DC restaurant, according to a Facebook posting Monday.

Teacher Kristin Mink was shown approaching Pruitt as he chowed down with a pal at the Teaism restaurant Monday, four blocks from his office at the EPA’s headquarters.

What kind of example does this set for her students? Is harassing people over policy differences now acceptable? They are doing it to ordinary people now, even just strangers wearing a Make America Great Again hat. We're seeing stories like this even day now.

The Left needs to back the fuck off before they get people killed.

Considering in one of the links above the victim was likely carrying a gun, likely it will be the attacker who gets a few extra breathing holes, which is only appropriate. But I'd rather have a political debate than a political civil war.

Rand Paul and family threatened with death by axe

Courier JournalA man is accused of threatening to chop up U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax.

The man has been arrested. He allegedly called in the threats to Paul's Bowling Green office.

"Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe," Paul said. "It's just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this."

It's funny how the targets of this sort of thing are almost always Republicans. (Giffords was an exception, but the man who killed her was just stark raving nuts).

The Vindicator“He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

“He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

“He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

“He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

Heckler's veto

Daily WirePatriot Prayer, which has been associated with elements of the alt-right, had a permit to demonstrate in Portland’s Federal Plaza Saturday, but Antifa showed up for a “counter-demonstration.” Before marchers had even stepped foot on the street, police had already seized “utility knives, clubs, and chemical sprays” from Antifa “counter-protesters” and detained several people clad in black associated with the group.

“Anti-fascist counter-demonstrators immediately began lobbing eggs, half-empty water bottles, and firecrackers at the conservative marchers, prompting federal police to fire paintballs filled with pepper-spray into the crowd,” the Oregonian said.

Antifa managed to strike only four people in their assault, but the projectiles began what police called a “riot.” The police were then forced to revoke the Patriot Prayer group’s permit and dissolve the demonstration.

Four members of Antifa were arrested.

Funny how bad acts by the "counterprotesters", including obviously premeditated violence, were used to shut down the original demonstration.

The left is going full Weimar

Front Page Mag What they want is to wreck America, go full Weimar, move to street violence, and then, by persuasion or force, impose their own system to deal with the emergency. What better way to trash most of the forms of government, the Constitution, checks and balances, than by burning everything down.

The excuses, border separation, police shootings, etc are just excuses for that endgame. They're propaganda to achieve an end.

We got here because all the brakes came off the left's train. It beat its liberal opponents. And now it's going to scream endlessly that everyone on the right is a Nazi because that justifies its intended violence. And that violence is intended to further radicalize everyone to the left.

Civility? Please.

The whole purpose is an overthrow of the existing order in the name of a political emergency. It's what every totalitarian system does. Set off violence, then seize power. The left doesn't have good odds of pulling it off. But the Dem leadership is incapable of controlling them. Or preventing them from wrecking its electoral plans.

They might have been able to resist once they got through the primaries, but the retirement of Kennedy will raise the stakes. They backed themselves into a corner with the various filibuster policies, and they are going to have to pay the price for that.

Death threats against Republicans rising...

Daily CallerRepublican Arizona Rep. David Schweikert says he received more death threats in 2017 than every other year he’s been in office combined.

“My fear is this is the playbook of a lot of our brothers and sisters on the left — they’re going to get fringier and fringier, louder and louder, angrier and angrier, and as you and I know, we sometimes have some folks in our society who aren’t completely healthy,” Schweikert said while appearing on “Plaidcast,” a podcast hosted by Republican Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin.

“And we had more death threats last year, in my office, even one towards my little girl, than we’ve ever had in all the other years combined and my fear is that this rage that is being generated for political turnout is actually really becoming unhealthy for our political society,” Schweikert continued.

The Arizona congressman has served in Congress since 2011.

“It’s incredibly troubling, because I’ve had threats against my family and my children as well — horrible things said,” Duffy agreed. “We know what happened to [House Majority Whip] Steve Scalise last year and our baseball team and with that, I don’t think the left recognizes that this isn’t the way the system was set up.”

“We’re supposed to debate, we’re supposed to argue, and we can be passionate, but then we go vote and we have elections and after we have winners we kind of step back and let them govern,” Duffy said.

And not just against politicians, but sometimes against their kids.
