More guns.


As the Supremes continue to take America closer to being a Christofascist state, it is important to read articles like the following from Tom Nichols ----writing for The Atlantic, to get a grasp of where we are heading as a country. I am afraid this trend will continue for awhile, because these Justices are still relatively young, and they have lifetime appointments. 

Just remember to vote next time. Elections have consequences. 

"I used to think of myself as a gun-control conservative—I supported both the right to own firearms and the interest of the state to limit that right—but America’s gun culture isn’t about rights. It’s about performative insecurity.

Back in 1959, the country singer Marty Robbins wrote a ballad about a murderous outlaw who met his well-deserved end at the hands of a handsome young Arizona Ranger who was carrying the “Big Iron on his hip.” (The song was supposedly inspired by a weapon Robbins saw in a shop, but there is some question about whether the Big Iron was a real gun.)

It’s a great song. But it wasn’t supposed to be a guide to life in modern America.

I don’t have the energy or expertise to debate whether the Supreme Court should have taken on the case of a New York State law that limited the ability to carry weapons around in public. Honestly, I just assume that many declines in the quality of American life for the foreseeable future will be announced with “In a 6–3 decision …” Elections have consequences, and with the current composition of the Court, this decision was inevitable.

The problem is not the Court’s decision. The problem is an adolescent, drama-laden gun culture, a romance with weapons that became extreme only in the past quarter century.

It didn’t used to be this way. I grew up around guns; my father had been a police officer, and we had two of them. My older half-brother, who lived a few streets away, was a police officer. Our next-door neighbor was a police officer. My hometown was a military town, and almost all of the men I knew were veterans who owned weapons and knew how to handle them. (There were some female veterans too. My mother, for one.)

What I remember about guns is that I remember almost nothing about guns. People owned them; they didn’t talk about them. They didn’t cover their cars in bumper stickers about them, they didn’t fly flags about them, they didn’t pose for dumb pictures with them. (I’ll plead one personal exemption: When I was a little boy, relatives in Greece once posed me in a Greek Evzone-soldier costume with my uncle’s hunting shotgun. I could barely lift it.)

Today, there is a neediness in the gun culture that speaks to deep insecurities among a certain kind of American citizen. The gun owners I knew—cops, veterans, hunters, sportsmen—owned guns as part of their life, sometimes as tools, sometimes for recreation. Gun ownership was not the central and defining feature of their life.

Don’t take my word for it that things have changed. Here’s Ryan Busse, a former gun-company executive who has now taken on his former industry, talking about the day someone showed up to a hunting party with an AR-15:

The unwritten rules of decency were enforced by firearm-industry leaders … I witnessed how this worked many times, including one occasion when a young writer brought his own AR-15 to a hunting event I was hosting in 2004. The senior figures there responded immediately. “That’s not the kind of thing we want to be promoting,” they said. The newcomer was shamed into locking the gun up for the rest of the event.

This kind of affirmation of cultural norms can be a lot more powerful than any law, and I suspect that the gun-culture extremists know it. They head off expressions of this kind of social disapproval by being aggressive and performative, daring anyone to criticize them for feeling the need to be armed while getting milk and eggs at the supermarket.

I have always trusted my fellow citizens with weapons. Now the most vocal advocates for unfettered gun ownership are men sitting in their cars in sunglasses and baseball caps, recording themselves as they dump unhinged rants into their phones about their rights and conspiracies and socialism.

The Supreme Court has now affirmed that all these guys can be the handsome ranger with the Big Iron on their hip. You can be angry with the Court for furthering and enabling this weirdness, but it’s not the Court’s fault. It is, as usual, our fault, as voters and citizens, for tolerating a culture that is endangering our fellow Americans instead of insisting that all of us exercise our constitutional rights like responsible adults." [Source] 

I have a slightly different take than Mr. Nichols, as I do put a little  more blame on the folks making the laws.  But I agree with his overall sentiment: This pseudo macho culture (mostly angry white men who want to make up for deficiencies in other areas, and young urban terrorist who measure their worth by the weapons they use) that has enveloped our society, will only cause things to get worse from here.

You can say (I don't agree) that it's not the court's fault that we got where we are, but it is still their damn job to issue rulings that deal with how we are now.
They are utterly failing to do so multiple times daily at this point.
And yes, elections do have consequences, and everyone with two working neurons to rub together knew this was a done deal the night they called the election for Fergus.
It will continue to get worse every time a goddamn Republican is elected to any office of public trust or responsibility.

DC Rapper Noah Settles Turns Himself In After Tysons Mall Shooting

A D.C. rapper wanted in connection with a shooting at Tysons Corner Center​ last Saturday turned himself into police on Wednesday.

TYSONS, VA — A D.C. rapper wanted in connection with a shooting at Tysons Corner Center Saturday turned himself into police on Wednesday, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Noah Settles, 22, was sought on charges of attempted malicious wounding, discharging a weapon into an occupied building and use of a firearm in commission of a felony, police said.

"Noah Settles, at the age of 22 very sadly, is no stranger to law enforcement in Washington, D.C. He's no stranger to law enforcement in Prince George's County, Maryland, and now he is no stranger to the Fairfax County Police Department," Fairfax County police Chief Kevin Davis said at a news conference Thursday morning.

"He recklessly discharged a firearm on the second floor of Tysons," Davis told reporters. "It was a crowded, beautiful Saturday afternoon. A lot of folks were there shopping in anticipation of Father's Day."

IT WAS ANOTHER NEGRO HOAX - FERAL NEGRO JUVENILE Student charged with MISDEMEANOR disorderly conduct for nooses found near Evanston HAVEN middle school - Once again it was a fucking HOAX
Student Won't Face Hate Crime Charges After Nooses Found at Evanston Middle School BECAUSE HE IS BLACK!

Police in suburban Evanston say that they have completed an investigation into three nooses that were found on the grounds of a middle school, alleging that a student at the school was responsible for the display.

According to authorities, police were called to Haven Middle School on May 13 after reports of a disturbance. While at the scene, police spoke to a witness who led them to three ropes that had been fashioned into nooses and hung from a tree in the school’s recess area.



Police in Evanston, with cooperation from the Evanston/Skokie School District, conducted an exhaustive investigation, using surveillance footage, cellphone videos and eyewitness testimony.
Ultimately, police say that the nooses were put up by a BLACK student at the middle school.

That student will face misdemeanor disorderly charges in juvenile court, but will not be charged with a hate crime, according to authorities.

Police said that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and determined that “the actions and motive of the involved juvenile did not meet the legal, statutory elements of a hate crime” in the case.

It is the court's fault that we got where we are, but the Republicans are the enablers, packing the courts with out of touch Chisto-facists.

University of Michigan Law Professor Leah Litman called the current SCOTUS members the “YOLO court.” Because the wingnut justices are shamelessly enacting by judicial fiat all the wackadoodle right-wing policy that Republican politicians could never successfully pass as legislation because the majority of the public hates them.

So they don’t really care if the court has any democratic legitimacy anymore; they’ll just erect higher and higher riot fences to keep angry mobs from slaying them. They don’t care much about the law, either, since they were completely willing to disregard both the plain language and history of the Establishment Clause to destroy the separation of church and state, and funnel tax money to religious schools.

They’re gonna do what they want, consequences for the country be damned. They DGAF.

Disturbing dashcam video shows moments leading up to murder of Uber driver...

PITTSBURGH. Pa. (WPXI/KAKE) — Chilling dashcam video shows the moments leading up to an Uber driver's murder.

Prosecutors in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, played in court what could be their most compelling evidence against Calvin Crew: 20 minutes of footage from 38-year-old Christina Spicuzza's Uber, showing the last moments her family will see her alive.

Police said Crew got into the backseat. His hood was up and he wore a black face mask that covered all but his eyes. He sat still, only muttering a word or two.

Ten minutes into the rise, Spicuzza cheerfully asks, "Did you have a good day today?"

He mumbles and Spicuzza said "that's good."

Eighteen minutes into the ride, police said Crew, 22, inched to the middle of the backseat and pulled a gun. He grabbed Spicuzza's ponytail and pressed the pistol to the back of her head.

Detectives on the case said the video was heart-wrenching to watch but acknowledge it could be key to getting justice for Spicuzza and her family.

"She tried to reason with him, and tried to plead to his humanity," said Det. Laurie McKeel with the Allegheny County Sheriff's Office.

Det. Greg Renko said, "Knowing what's coming, watching what Crew is doing without Christina even know what's coming."

When the dash camera was ripped off the windshield, the ride didn't end. What we don't see is that police said Spicuzza was forced to drive for another hour while Crew accessed her financial apps like Venmo, PayPal, Dollar Bank and Square.


When these things happen, we need to execute the perps... and sterilize all of the perp's offspring.  As in, the gene pool just got a huge shot of CHLORINE from you!

He obviously doesn’t want to do away with the right to marry interracially, and doesn’t think that is likely to happen. And, honestly, it isn’t very likely.

However, once you start arguing for ripping up rights previously acquired in court opinions based on a contemporary interpretation of the 14th Amendment, and instead going back to the legal and moral standards of 1868, who knows where that might lead?

Even if Thomas voted no on a decision that would ban interracial marriage, he could and would be out voted by the other five radical justices. Think about what the court did with their 2010 decision, Citizens United, when they ruled that corporations are people and that money is speech.
This opened the door to unlimited dark money.

Here’s an easy explanation:

Republicans like rednecks who are in loving, committed relationships with their gun collections.

Republicans hate “slutty” women who accidentally got themselves pregnant and don’t want to give birth.

The interests of kids — either the fully developed, real kind who are getting shot at with AR-15s while attending school, or the fake kind that are actually clumps of cells in a woman’s uterus — weren’t actually a factor in the minds of the justices who made these Supreme Court decisions.

From Talking Points Memo....

A new CBS News poll shows Americans see the Court decision overturning Roe as a “step backward” rather than a “step forward” by a 21 point margin. 59% of Americans disapprove of the decision. 67% of women disapprove of the decision. Almost exactly the proportion of Americans who disapprove of the decision, support overruling it with a new federal law. That’s 58%. This is a YouGov poll and these results are if anything more favorable for the anti-Roe side than most. But it still shows a decision that is overwhelmingly unpopular. 50% of Democrats say they are more likely to vote because of the decision, 28% for indies and 20% for GOPs.

Plessy v. Ferguson was the 19th-century “separate but equal” ruling that underpinned much of Jim Crow. It was overturned by Brown v Board of Education in 1954.

I don’t foresee Brown ever being overturned.

As long as we still have a democratic system, the backlash would be too great.

On the other hand, if democracy fell, there would be no need to overturn a previous court judgment. It could just be ignored at that point. The new fascist Supreme Leader would issue a decree to round up the “Untermenschen” and his word would be law.

The abortion ban is a death sentence for some American women and a burden to millions of others. I will do my best to help as many as I can.

I once heard a presentation on Brown by a senior lawyer for the NAACP. He explained that they picked apart Plessy by going to the courts, time after time, with concrete examples of how separate but equal didn't work. Finally, it got to the point where it became clear to the Court that they had to just end it.

The Christian Taliban didn't do that. They put their allies on the bench until they got to the point where they could overturn Roe in one stroke.

OMG, this video!

https://media.gab.com/system/media_attachments/files/108/026/297/playable/4a8442b86abfb9b2.mp4

A man (specifics invisible) has climbed a high-voltage transmission tower and has walked out on the second of the 3 cross-arms on one side.  Spectators on the ground urge him to "wow it", the last of which appears to be the cameraman.  He reaches both arms out toward the top wire.  There is a flash of white-hot gas and a loud hum which lasts for a fraction of a second.  As a woman screams, the man, presumably now dead, falls through the lattice of the middle arm, down onto the lower arm, and then down to the ground.  The body bounces once.

At least one onlooker claps in applause.

A few seconds later, a fat black woman in a black-striped yellow top passes the camera left to right, holding her hand over her mouth.  She is accompanied by a taller black man in a red shirt and a black baseball cap.  The video cuts off at 26 seconds.

Instead of urging the victim to climb back down, at least two and maybe three onlookers urged the victim to "wow it".  The woman who was obviously upset at the man's fate is NOT heard until the fatal contact, suggesting that she was simply too stupid to see the disaster before it came to fruition.  Then there's the onlooker who applauded, as if a fatal electrocution and fall was merely entertainment to him.

Black lives don't matter to blacks.  The proof is right there.

Trump Won Arizona said...

https://uncoverdc.com/2022/06/29/predetermined-algorithms-source-of-widespread-election-fraud-in-arizona/

Predetermined algorithms caused widespread election fraud in Maricopa County, Arizona. Jovan Hutton Pulitzer told a packed room on June 27 that he conducted a forensic kinematic investigation of the ballots that “shows sufficient and irrefutable evidence of pervasive voter fraud and widespread election fraud in Maricopa County, Arizona.” Pulitzer explained that “specific ballots” were repeatedly and fraudulently inserted to predetermine the election’s winner. In short, the Maricopa election was an absolute mess that robbed many voters of their 14th amendment rights. Pulitzer said he is still knee-deep in the investigation.

To be clear, a kinematic investigation means Pulitzer actually followed the physical and cyber “trail” of the Maricopa County ballots from the time they were manufactured to the “printing, the folding, sorting, and mailing” of those ballots. Pulitzer then “followed the mailing process, the return process, the election handling process, and eventual scanning, tallying, and election recording of the votes—and reporting of the final outcome.” In addition, Pulitzer drilled his investigation down to the precinct level. He and his team processed over 20,895,610 digital and forensic images in multiple formats.
Predetermined Algorithms and Strategically Inserted Ballots

Pulitzer says he can prove that predetermined algorithms caused the election to be skewed toward a win for Biden.

“91.62 percent of the predetermined ballots were cast in favor of Joe Biden.”

Approximately 406,972 of the over 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County were “of a predetermined origin” because of the use of algorithms. 38 percent of the mail-in ballots for Biden were found to be of a predetermined nature. 33 percent of the Trump ballots on election day were predetermined. After removing the fraudulently cast ballots, Trump got 59% of the votes. To find that “true vote,” Pulitzer removed the ballots contributing to the predetermined outcome. Biden only got 41 percent with the removal of the predetermined ballots.

They didn't have a warrant for the house, but came in anyway, and busted my roommate for some leafers and a bong. I testified at his trial in Berkeley and told them about the fat pig who came out of his room with the bong and the tray of leafers saying "This shows us that you're a smoker not a seller and you probably won't have a case number behind this". The DA asked me to tell the court the officer's name and I told her that I don't think we were introduced.

(Unless you want to go back an entire century to the Spanish flu epidemic.) And he defiantly refused to wear a mask in court, after being asked to by his colleagues.

This just goes to show that even people with law degrees from Harvard and Yale can get brainwashed, too, if they get all their news from garbage media outlets like Fox. Or, alternatively, it means that Republicans managed to stuff the court full of the dumbest smart people in America.

It’s pretty horrifying if the lib-owning circus sideshow has arrived at the Supreme Court, which was previously the most serious, sober branch of government.

Theoretically, that was the whole point of giving these folks lifetime appointments: so they weren’t tempted to act like crowd-pleasing, grandstanding, dancing-bear performers, as the elected politicians are.

If being un-fire-able by the voters is STILL not enough to make you concentrate on doing your job right, instead of making a big show of spitefully flipping the bird at people you don’t like, then you are one sorry motherfucker.
