Last year at this time, I remember reading an online argument in an article comment section where some people were finger-wagging at those of us who were deeply concerned about the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally. They won’t be violent, they said, and us claiming that they could be violent was demonizing and divisive at a time when we need to be united. Spoiler alert: They were violent. It is not clear how many people died from the attack on the Capitol, but some put it at nine, including post-event suicides by police. There was significant damage as well. … Continue reading A Year After January 6, What Did We Learn?

After my last post a reader who stands in opposition to what I said asked me some questions that I thought would be better answered in todays post then a simple reply to just him. He raises some points that I often hear from those who stand in opposition to my point of view. We will begin with
Since (Biden) took office, Gas prices in suburban areas of (LOCATION REDACTED) have hit highs of $5 per gallon.
Yes they have. I wish Biden had the power to put a cap on how much oil producers can charge for a gallon of gas, but until the socialist dream is achieved he doesn’t. Nor has any president. EVER. If you are upset about five dollar a gallon gas then start getting mad at the real culprits, the oil companies. Personally I think it’s because they see we are coming to the end of the age of the internal combustion engine and are trying to get as much cashola as they can before no one wants and/or needs their product. But if you think five bucks is high, wait till they start using Hurricane Ida as an excuse to raise prices.
And you know they will.
Since he took office, ISIS which was rarely heard of the previous 4 years are claiming to be responsible for the afghan airport bombing which killed many US marines and citizens that have been left there before being evacuated before the US army was to let in the Taliban to take over.
First of all, it was not ISIS that was responsible for the Kabul airport bombing but rather ISIS-K which is an off shoot organization not controlled by ISIS. US citizens were killed in the attack but many more of the dead were Afghans. That’s not an excuse, just a statement of fact. Could it have been prevented? I don’t know, but I do know that a second attempt was prevented with a well placed drone strike. I’m sure you were applauding the bold and direct action that Biden took.
Before he took office it was thought that there might be control on the current situation at hand but reading articles on CNN which is pro Biden, it looks like this August is worse than last year August (although you’ll claim it’s all others faults).
What control are you talking about? Trump’s “peace talks” with the Taliban? Look, let me make it clear, we had no business being in Afghanistan and we certainly had no business being there for twenty years. Biden said enough is enough, we’re not wasting any more money or blood on a place with no strategic value to our country. And if you want to cry about terrorists being there please note my earlier comment about the drone strike as an example of how to take care of things.
The Taliban have no friends, only those who give them money to buzz around and annoy Western democracies. Let them run an unrunable country. When the time is right an opposition group will take to the hills, just as the Taliban did twenty years ago, and begin a guerilla war that will end with them marching into Kabul. But if you think that will bring about a peaceful, serene Afghanistan I’ll remind you that the Taliban will just take to the hills and begin another guerilla war.

I was going to write about something else till local events overrode that plan. Once again the country faces yet again another (I can’t use enough synonyms for often) mass shooting. This one was a little closer to home which makes it no less sorrowful but much more impactful on those of us in NorCal. This was the largest mass shooting in NorCal history, eclipsing the 101 California Massacre in 1993. I hate that we have names for these unimaginable events. I’m sick at heart for the families who lost a husband, son, brother, best friend in an act that … Continue reading Names In A List
I was a cartoon kid. I grew up on them, devoting endless Saturday mornings to the careful study of the various nuances of Underdog, Top Cat, or Yogi Bear. But far and away my absolute favorites were anything that came out of the Jay Ward factory. Bullwinkle and Rocky, Tom Slick, Dudley Do-Right, Peabody and Sherman. I may not have understood every joke, in fact there were times I knew something was a joke but too “adult” for me, but I loved the way they just kept spitting them out.
One that I generally did get the jokes for was Fractured Fairy Tales. Take a story that even at the age of seven or eight I had heard a zillion times and put a funny modern twist on it. Add that great narration by Edward Everett Horton and I’d say I would be on the floor laughing but I was already on the floor and laughing.
I bring this up because whenever there is fighting between Israel and an Arab entity (be it country or terrorist group) as there has been the last two weeks inevitably there will be a wag out there opining that this is just two peoples fighting over which Middle Eastern desert sect wrote down the better/correct fairy tales.
Both sides fairy tales are fractured. As are so many of the fairy tales we tell.
Personally I’m an atheist. Where did the world come from? Don’t know, don’t care. I deal with what is, not what might be. I wish the rest of the people in the world saw things as I see them, I think we’d all be better off, but I’m willing to respect a person’s right to their own opinion. You want to believe in God, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, the Church of Bob, that’s your belief system and if it works for you then as the kids these days say, you do you.
Where I do have a problem is when you want to take your personal belief system and impose it on everyone else. I’m not in favor of universal excommunication of all religion, but if your religion says in effect “Only our fairytale is the correct way to live your life, follow or we will make your life worthless” then I’m going to have to say “With all due respect, bullshit”.
Throughout human history we have told these fractured fairy tales. Ancient civilizations were mostly structured by fairy tales. What is a king or royalty but a construct by which a fable is told that this person, by right of family or maybe because he pulled a sword from a stone, is to rule over the rest of the land. As humans have evolved many societies have done away with that particular fairy tale or at least turned it into a profitable center of entertainment.
Yeah, I’m looking at you QEII.
The fairy tales did serve a somewhat useful purpose back in the day. They taught children to not steal from their neighbors or to be careful of the wolf in the forest or to not judge a beast too quickly for he may be an enchanted prince (or at least a nice guy). They also gave hope in a time when many lives were frankly hopeless. Maybe your fairy godmother will get you to the ball or a handsome prince will wake you from a spell or that even an ugly ducking can turn into a beautiful swan.

The no longer failing New York Times has an article today about how police departments across the country are making attempts to weed out “political extremists” (the rest of us call them Fascists) from their ranks. Imagine that, far right wingnuts patrolling our streets, armed and pretty much impervious to judicial oversight. Who could have imagined? The article centers on an Oklahoma sheriff who was part of the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6.

It’s been awhile since I wrote about an American mass shooting. The reason is genuinely horrible: they’ve become so commonplace that we’re *almost* getting used to them. That’s an appalling place to find ourselves in, but that’s how things stand in the summer of 2019. The El Paso shooting is particularly horrific: the shooter went to that Walmart because so many people cross the border to shop there. It’s what happens when Mexicans are demonized by a sitting president* for his short-term political advantage. As always, the GOP is offering thoughts and prayers without informing the public what will happen … Continue reading Still Numb

No, he’s insane. When someone is as psychotic as this guy is I never take what they say about politics and culture seriously. They could just as well claim to be helping the Martians invade.
Apparently he has three accomplices though so it will be interesting to see what kind of mental cases they are.
Crazy person: “Those (fill in the blank) are dangerous.”
Crazier person: “Yeah!”
Crazy person: “Those (fill in the blank) are all terrorists.”
Crazier person: “Yeah!”
Crazy person: “Those (fill in the blank) need to be wiped out in a holy war.”
Crazier person: “Yeah!
Crazy person: “Those (fill in the blank) are all animals.”
Crazier person: “YEAH!!”
Crazy person: “There’s a war coming against those (fill in the blank), and we have all the guns.”
Crazier person: “YEAH!!!!!!”
Crazier person shoots up a building full of (fill in the blank)
Crazy person: “Where in the hell did you get THAT idea? You’re just a crazy person.”
And so on….
Of course, only crazy people hate other people because they pray in a different language.
Muslims should not be shocked that some fruitcake hit back. Their terrorist “martyrs” have been killing innocents for years and now when they get hit, the whole world’s left wing establishment screams its head off about innocents being killed. You live by the sword, someone is going to die by the sword.

Own goal is known in military circles as a “false flag” operation, a term from naval history where ships raised their enemies’flag and attacked another partisan to start a war. This is what we have here.
Any conservative minded person in their right mind would shudder at the idea of doing something like this. Do you really think that makes the first bit of difference?
I’ll give the guy this much: he certainly understands the American right, at least as far as FreeRepublic goes.

Coast Guard Officer Accused of Terrorist Plot Targeting Media, Lawmakers
Military,com ^ | February 20, 2019 | By Hope Hodge Seck
“military.com”? Damn that liberal media!!

A Coast Guard lieutenant assigned to the service’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., has been arrested on drug and gun possession charges, and is accused of plans to “murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” according to documents filed in Maryland District Court.
Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, an acquisitions officer for the National Security Cutter Acquisition Program, was arrested Feb. 15 and charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition by an unlawful user or addict of controlled substances, and possession of Tramadol, a Schedule IV pain medication.
A motion for detention pending trial, filed by U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur, paints a much more menacing portrait of Hasson’s crimes and planned crimes.
“The current charges, however, are the proverbial tip of the iceberg,” Hur wrote. “The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect government conduct.”
Hur cited a draft email written by Hasson in June 2017 in which he said he was “dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth” using a “Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax” or some other mass toxin.
Another draft letter to a “known American neo-Nazi leader” identified Hasson as a white nationalist looking for an opportunity for “a little focused violence” to establish racial supremacy.
When Hasson was arrested in Silver Spring, Maryland, earlier this month, the document states, law enforcement agents found 15 firearms, including shotguns, rifles and handguns, and “conservatively, over 1,000 rounds of mixed ammunition.”
A list of potential targets allegedly compiled by Hasson in January included “prominent Democratic congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities” including TV host Chris Hayes; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California; Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York; and many others.

Is this the Rubicon that Trump and his nutjob supporters have finally crossed?
Have they, at long last, no sense of decency?
And a double-wide is not a “house”.
Just so ya know.
Only 15 firearms?
Yep. Only 15. Piker.
How many can he shoot at once anyway?
Um – two?
And anything less than 10,000 rounds is not significant.
I’ll pass that info along to the residents of Thousand Oaks, the Pittsburgh Synagogue, Jacksonville Landing, Orlando, Fla., Scottsdale, Ca, Santa Fe, Tx., Stoneman Douglas High School, etc, etc, etc.
As far as his koko’s list goes who doesn’t have one of those?
Who indeed? In related news, the FBI just got its probable cause warrant to search Free Republic’s server for this nitwit’s IP address.
The guy is a piker
I already said that.
and as usual the government is vastly overstating its position. “If the federal government was put in charge of the Sahara Desert tomorrow in five years we would have a sand shortage”. Milton Friedman.
To:moonhawkWhy do these people always write down/publicize their stupid plots?yeah, how convenient. Maybe because for a false flag to work, the “ evidence” needs to be indisputable?
Writing for First Draft is one of my passions. It’s often my therapy. This has been one of those times. The MAGA Bomber’s failed attempt at mass assassination shook me to the core. Then, the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh left many of us questioning what it means to be an American in the Trump era. I am proud to be an American, but I am ashamed of our current leadership’s inability to respond with an ounce of human decency or a scintilla of empathy. As far as the president* is concerned, it’s an inconvenient interruption of … Continue reading Kristallnacht In Broad Daylight

Suspicious package sent to Obama intercepted by Secret Service
The Hill ^ | October 24, 2018 | Avery Anapol
Posted on 10/24/2018, 9:09:53 AM by EdnaMode
The Secret Service has intercepted a suspicious package addressed to former President Obama in Washington, D.C.
The Secret Service said in a statement that the package, and another sent to the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York, were identified as “potential explosive devices and appropriately handled as such.”
The statement said that the Obamas and Clintons did not receive the packages, and were not at risk of receiving them.
The package sent to the Clintons was reported earlier Wednesday and was intercepted late Tuesday night, according to the Secret Service.
“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the Secret Service said in a statement. “The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.”
The Secret Service said it had initiated “a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.”
NBC New York reported that the package sent to the Clintons is similar to the explosive device found at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros on Monday.
Well, I wonder what the first comment is going to be….
********************************Soros yesterday, The Clintons and Obama today. Right before midterms. Has to be a hoax.
As I said on the Clinton thread, this is not the MO for conservatives.
We enact change at the ballot box or if necessary the cartridge box.
It is typical for the left to try to send bombs through mail because they have no problems with scaring people into compliance or killing them if the person disagrees with them.
At age 29, Rudolph was the perpetrator of the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta, which occurred on July 27, 1996, during the 1996 Summer Olympics. He called the police, warning about the bomb before it detonated. The blast killed spectator Alice Hawthorne and wounded 111 others. Melih Uzunyol, a Turkish cameraman, who ran to the scene following the blast, died of a heart attack. Rudolph’s motive for the bombings, according to his April 13, 2005 statement, was political (…)
Rudolph has made it clear in his written statement and elsewhere that the purpose of the bombings was to fight against abortion and the “homosexual agenda.” He considered abortion to be murder, the product of a “rotten feast of materialism and self-indulgence”; accordingly, he believed that its perpetrators deserved death, and that the United States government had lost its legitimacy by sanctioning it. He also considered it essential to resist by force “the concerted effort to legitimize the practice of homosexuality” in order to protect “the integrity of American society” and “the very existence of our culture”, whose foundation is the “family hearth.”
After Rudolph’s arrest for the bombings, The Washington Post reported that the FBI considered Rudolph to have “had a long association with the Christian Identity movement, which asserts that Northern European whites are the direct descendants of the lost tribes of Israel, God’s chosen people.” Christian Identity is a white nationalist religion which holds the view that those who are not white Christians can not be saved. In the same article, the Post reported that some FBI investigators believed Rudolph may have written letters that claimed responsibility for the nightclub and abortion clinic bombings on behalf of the Army of God, a group that sanctions the use of force to combat abortions and is associated with Christian Identity.
DAMN those lefties!!
I don’t care who is doing this, they need to be found, found fast, before anyone hurt. This violence is what comes from, or rather, an escalation and response of what Democrats have done, directly and through proxies like Antifa.
Thanks for clearing that up for us.
All need to be shut down. Immediately and completely. Good to see White House is out front on this. Make it across the board, no violence by anyone will be tolerated.
I try my best not to take the news personally. That’s been impossible this week after I realized that the most analogous event in American history to pipe bomb mania was the Lincoln-Seward conspiracy. Then, the MAGA Bombers enemies list … Continue reading Florida Man, MAGA Bomber
