Blake's now not being charged with anything and the handcuffs have been removed, I believe he is paralyzed though.

Sen Rand Paul believes the protesters that harassed him and his wife last night meant to do them bodily harm, if not kill them. He also thinks they are paid operatives, will this be investigated, I don't think so.

A rough ride ahead for sure.

"Well, I suspect that he [Rittenhouse -- an Austrian name, btw; obviously influenced by u-no-hoo] will have a spirited, well funded defense. "

Don't count on it.

24 protesters at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville are defendants in a civil suit engineered by self-described "loud-mouthed Jewish lesbians from New York."
Their stated intent is to bankrupt the individuals: "hound them for payment for the rest of their lives;" to "crush" such protest movements.

The Jewish plaintiff's lawyers have accumulated millions of dollars, seeded with a $100,000 donation from ADL.

Defendants have been harassed from ability to use GoFundMe; have been unable to find counsel willing to take the case; have been subject to stiff fines imposed by the court for failing to produce certain items in a timely fashion. One Defendant who had found a lawyer was ultimately unable to pay him, whereupon the lawyer got court's permission to terminate representation.

Charlottesville is a center of legal talent in Virginia, drawing upon UVa's very fine law school.
But the Old Line law firms seem to have aged out, or been bullied into silence.

Realize that this is a CIVIL suit, brought for the express purpose of bankrupting and "crushing" the UtR protesters. Unite the Right participant James Fields was tried by the State and convicted of homicide after his car drove into a crowd of counter-protesters. A public defender represented Fields, poorly, and he was sentenced to 400 years in prison.

Contrast the situation Fields was tried and sentenced for, with that of many, many of the participants in BLM 'protests,' where deliberate mayhem, destruction and even death were perpetrated, but nobody seems to have been arrested or charged.

Not charged with anything? More cowardice!

Col.,

One of the men, to quote the NYDailyNews: "Online arrest records show Huber was arrested several times on battery, drugs and other charges." had attacked Rittenhouse, who was running away and fell, with his Antifa prefered weapon - a skateboard. The second individual shot had a pistol - illegal for him to own as an ex-con - in his hand. "" Rosenbaum had an open criminal case on battery, disorderly conduct and domestic abuse charges, according to the Wisconsin Circuit Court website." "

Rittenhouse did not shoot him a second time nor shoot the person who put his hands up. Google won't autofill " Gaige Grosskreutz + gun", because how can you control the narrative otherwise.

Did anyone bother to ask Joe about the assualt upon Senator Rand Paul and his wife or the use of bliding strobes, another BLM/Antifa tactic? Where's Speaker Pelosi, the Mayor of DC and the Senator from California?

They are all just getting practice to unleash the violent coup when Uncle Joe loses, if they don't rig it first.
A final point about the lefts new icon of victimhood, Jacob Blake has apparently had his felony warrant for sexual assault vacated.

"In May, Blake was accused of unlawfully entering a home and sexually assaulting a woman in her bedroom before leaving with her vehicle, CNN reported, citing a criminal complaint it obtained."

No. The BLM/Antifa people are Marxist revolutionaries much like the scum who took over Russia in 1918. Black people who fail do well in this country have themselves to blame.

No idea what you are talking about. You should stick with music. You don't have take responsibility for anything there. the Marxists in the street are not innocent souls who want to be allowed to live differently. they are people who want to impose their own tyranny.

“Video eye” does not lie. Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. Murder charges are factually unsupportable. An egregious miscarriage of justice is occurring with respect to this 17-year old boy. I love truth & justice. I deplore lies & injustice. Had those feelings ALL my life.

Lin Wood was Nick Sandman’s attorney who sued CNN for defamation and got a settlement. He’s gonna represent Kyle.

The Antifa victims of Rittenhouse in Kenosha were cockroaches coming out of the cracks. It is expected with 30 million unemployed and 40 years of bipartisan deindustrialization and free trade.

Having said that, a 17 year old, driven to Kenosha by his mom, armed with an AR-15 is a really stupid idea and an accident waiting to happen. The Kenosha police apparently were supportive of a militia rabble; this is inherently unprofessional. If the Kenosha police had sent the militia rabble home, this would not have happened.

Does the US Army or Marine Corps send 17 year olds out into urban environments untrained and fully armed without experienced guidance?

If this sort of thing continues, things are going to blow.

Jack

Sir

Maybe we don’t get any debates. Pelosi has already called for that. If we do, maybe it is a virtual one.

The open question is if Trump wins the election what will the Democrats do? Hillary has already advised Biden to not concede. What happens in states like Michigan and North Carolina if they’re unable to call their election due to contested ballots?

What will Trump do if DC, NY and other big cities riot in scale? He’ll be POTUS until January.

upstater

The US Army and USMC have sent many 17 year olds into combat with not much training. You don't know that? Where the hell have you been? Yes, things are going to blow if the revolutionaries are not suppressed. I suggest free range prison camps in the Aleutians with the best camping gear that money can buy.

I understand that we stand on the edge of the abyss.

tim s

Sir, thanks for posting on Kyle. He needs all of the support he can get, and keeping it from being swept under the rug should be the least we can do. You are right, the abyss is opening. Kyle did what he had to do, and the same challenge will be faced by all good people. God bless him.

Fred

upstater,

There are millions unemployed due to Democrats like Cuomo declaring them 'non-essential' and ordering them not to go to work.

"The Kenosha police apparently were supportive of a militia rabble; this is inherently unprofessional."

Is that what you are calling BLM/Antifa now? Call the democratic mayors and ask them why they are forbidding the police from clearing the streets of rioters. Oh, wait, the mayors are complicit in this, just like Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, Baltimore, D.C., and on and on. Except Atlanta, that black lady democrat mayor down that way ain't letting this crap destroy her city. Too bad the rest of the left don't have a spine, balls, and some sense like her.

Colonel, SST;
Could it be just mere coincidence that all three attackers are ex-cons? Seems to violate Goldfinger's "law of three".

P.s: I am impressed by Rittenhouse's fire discipline. As someone here said before he is a natural. I am less impressed by his teammates. How did he get separated?

GEORGE CHAMBERLAIN

the latest, Rittenhouse was at his job in Kenosha as a life guard!
After work went to the school to help wash off graffiti.
the guns were not transported across state lines.
this changes everything.

Not only was his fire discipline excellent, he was also a superb marksman. He shot from tough angles while under attack from multiple directions. He did not fire indiscriminately either.

Amazing kid! Glad he's got a good attorney and will get serious financial support to mount a credible legal defense to a spurious indictment.

Barbara Ann
Filling a Vacancy on the National Ticket: In the event of death, resignation or disability of a nominee of the Party for President or Vice President after the adjournment of the National Convention, the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee shall confer with the Democratic leadership of the United States Congress and the Democratic Governors Association and shall report to the Democratic National Committee, which is authorized to fill the vacancy or vacancies.
The above is an excerpt from the DNC's "CALL For the 2020 Democratic National Convention" document, the first link in the article below.


If this is the plan, my sense is we are in the phase before the imminent 'discovery' of poor Joe's mental decline where Dem voters need to be scared (by the prospect of losing the election with Joe) into accepting the DNC's pick of savior, just before the election.

I made money in business after I left the government but never liked the process at all. I was always a public service guy. I understand your point. BTW my Francophone ancestors arrived in Canada in 1617 and the Anglos in 1802. That branch moved back to the states in the the late 1830s after the rebellion against the crown which split the family.

Deap

Democrats own the riots and the violence. Chicago 1968 redux.

Deap

DNC succession policy: at least this slot does not automatically go to Kamala Harris.

But who else would take the top of the ticket at this time, under these circumstances? My money is on Eric Swalwell. Maybe Wasserpoodle would take one for the team - the historic two woman ticket - Florida remains in contention. At least I think that would make it a two female ticket, but it might need blood tests for confirmation.

Deap

In a capitalist society, no everyone needs to win. Some can simply benefit due to the fact winners exist and they create trickle down. .

Under socialism, everyone loses. Except for the children of the new government elites. Thus by the third generation you have wealth stratification all over again again, but floating only on OPM. Those funding the OPM at that point rise up and throw the bums at the top out.

News from Kenosha. I suspect thatyou won't hear about this on CNN...

https://www.unz.com/isteve/giant-conspiracy-or-recreational-rioters/

Not your garden variety food trucks. Amtifa logistics all the way from the Left Coast, more like.

Are we there yet, Daddy? An organized, well-funded sedition, that is? Wonder if the Federal authorities would care to take a look at this? Not all of them, of course.

JerseyJeffersonian

Also in from Kenosha:

The guy who got shot. Seems like a fine, upstanding fellow to me.

But then the police union had a few things to say about how the case was being handled and characterized through selective "facts" being floated by the local and state ideologues:

But wait, there's more!

Sniff, sniff. Do I smell money money? They should all be compensated for being made to feel so tired.


Deap

Since arriving 1687, there was never a time when my own, now well-expanded and highly dispersed, family name members were not involved in politics and government. This family name tradition was the mother's milk, upon which I was raised. Never thought much about this until now. I like our country. Deep roots within the family stories do create a sense of protective stewardship.

Vegetius

Antifa and BLM wear red (and black), not brown. The only time they wear brown is when they do false-flags to sucker people.

I know a couple of generations have been conditioned by the television to shriek "Fascist!" at anything that seems un-American, but SST is celebrated for its high standards of historical accuracy.
