Democrats’ ‘War Game’ for Election Includes West Coast Secession, Possible Civil War

Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election, according to a report by Ben Smith in a New York Times column Sunday.

The bulk of Smith’s column is devoted to the question of how the media will handle Election Night coverage, given that the result may not be known for weeks. Vote-by-mail, which many states have only recently adopted — ostensibly, to prevent the spread of coronavirus in polling places — could lead to an uncertain result.

The Morning Briefing: The Summer of Love Sure Has a Lot of Violence and Murder

 

Endless Summer, But Not the Good Kind

Wishing all of you joyous Tuesday, Kruiser Morning Briefing readers.

How is everyone's Summer of Love working out so far?

Yeah, that's rhetorical.

As this year moves into its seventeen-thousandth month it gets to be more of a crap shoot looking at the news every day. Alas, it is part of the job. We've reached a point this summer where the days in March and April when we were only worrying about dying from the plague seem rather halcyon now.

A couple of posts grabbed my attention yesterday that indicated we may not be reaching our potential as a species and that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan was way off with her prediction about how this summer was going to play out.

Bryan highlighted an article from the Wall Street Journal that had some disturbing numbers about the rise in murder rates in many of America's major cities:

Rarely do we witness ...

Shock Survey Finds That Funding Is Being Reduced For “Nearly Half” Of All Major City Police Departments

By Michael Snyder

The Economic Collapse

August 4, 2020

In recent weeks there has been a tremendous amount of debate about whether police departments around the country should be “defunded” or not, but what most Americans don’t realize is that it is already happening on a massive scale.  At a time when crime rates are absolutely soaring and civil unrest is raging in major cities across the nation, police budgets are being deeply cut and in some cities there is talk of eliminating police departments altogether.  I knew that a few cities had already made moves in this direction, but I had no idea that it was happening on such a widespread basis.  According to a report prepared by the Police Executive Research Forum, nearly half of the law enforcement agencies that they surveyed “are reporting that funding has already been slashed or is expected to be reduced”

The Canonization of John Lewis

 
Blog
 
August 4, 2020
 
The extravagant tributes conferred by the conservative establishment on the onetime civil rights leader and longtime Atlanta Democratic congressman John Lewis are as ineffectual as they are utterly tasteless.

Lewis’s moments of fame came when he accompanied Martin Luther King, Jr., on his March on Washington in 1964, demonstrating for what became the Voting Rights Act. They then fatefully crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965, leading to a clash with police in which Lewis sustained serious injuries to his head. Whether or not one approves of the Voting Rights Act, no one should question that the black protesters were treated brutally and that what happened to Lewis was inexcusable.

Lewis later made a career out of this inexcusable treatment on Bloody Sunday, holding a congressional seat in Georgia’s overwhelmingly black 5th District from 1987 until his death. The media, including—or especially—Fox News, presented Lewis as an exemplary “man of principle.” I heard this phrase so often from authorized conservatives that after a while I came to think of it as a form of doxology. One editorialist at the neoconservative Boston Herald balked at the idea of renaming the Pettus Bridge in Selma, which still bears the name of a “racist” Confederate commander, for the deceased Lewis. Although this gesture, it has been suggested, might help morale what with the town’s sagging economy, the editorialist complains that renaming the bridge might not be enough. More grandiose ways must be devised to honor the civil rights leader.

This genuflecting from the right comes despite the fact that is impossible think of anything Lewis did in Congress that would please a non-leftist. He played the race card against Republicans and attacked Trump with extraordinary ferocity as a “racist,” particularly in a widely noted speech on July 17, 2019. Lewis also refused to go to Trump’s inauguration and worked tirelessly to get him impeached. Although Trump never hesitated to fire back, it was clear that he was going after someone who loathed him profoundly and who thought he was a dangerous white racist.

Lewis also railed against the Confederate Battle Flag almost as obsessively as National Review Editor Rich Lowry and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-N.C.)—as a hate symbol that should never be publicly displayed. Curiously, Lewis and King had once considered that battle flag as a symbol for the black civil rights movement. Lewis also became an enthusiastic backer of the LGBT cause, although his venerated mentor Martin Luther King had expressed views on homosexuality that would nowadays cause him to be canceled, even by Conservatism Inc. Apparently, principles change even for the impeccably principled, but not so for Lewis’s righteous indignation, which continued to erupt.

Now that I’m on my rant, let me mention that my lifelong conservative heroine Phyllis Schlafly received nothing like Lewis’s sendoff when she died four years ago in her nineties. Not surprisingly, the lying media sneeringly chronicled the passing of this aged reactionary who believed in fixed gender roles and other Hitlerian notions. But Conservatism Inc. was almost as silent about Phyllis’s passing, and one might imagine that Phyllis would have had to be a black leftist to be treated with the week-long adulation accorded to Lewis. National Review Contributing Editor Jonah Goldberg did note her passing in  in a mixed assessment that began: “I had my disagreements with the legendary conservative activist.” It appears that Jonah couldn’t forgive Phyllis for backing Donald Trump.

Although the marathon adulation bestowed on Lewis gave multiple occasions for virtue signaling, it’s unlikely to have changed many votes on the right. Those who supported Lewis politically are not about to join the GOP because of Fox News’s not-very-subtle pandering. One would have to be invincibly dumb not to see the ulterior motives behind this grandstanding. Although some blacks may vote for Trump in November, it’s doubtful they’ll be doing so because of Fox News’s endless tributes. These black Trump voters are probably religious Christians, threatened inner-city businesspeople, and policemen. They would most certainly not be progressive, leftist Democrats like Fox-contributor and eulogist Richard Fowler, who seems to hate Trump as much as he revered Lewis.

Another obvious reason Conservative Inc. put on its politically correct display last week was to engage in its customary game of triangulation. Media conservatives feel driven to show friends and associates on the left that they are not like those bad reactionaries whom good moderate conservatives shun. These good people care for most of what the left does, but in a more moderate, less confrontational way. The fact they can virtue signal on what we are assured is a conservative channel or publication makes anything they say right-wing by association. As my acquaintances assure me, if something appears on Fox, in National Review, or in The Wall Street Journal, it must be right-wing. Why else would it appear there?

To his credit, President Trump is not dissembling about his venomous defamer. He sent his condolences in characteristically sloppy English to the family of the deceased congressman and then declined to pay his respects to Lewis’s casket. This may have been Trump’s moment of dignity.

Residents of Democrat Ruled Cities Have to Protect Themselves

Residents of Democrat Ruled Cities Have to Protect Themselves

https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/08/04/armed-residents-offer-no-nonsense-response-to-peaceful-invaders-marching-to-seattle-police-chiefs-home-955856? [1]

Armed residents offer no-nonsense response to ‘peaceful’ invaders marching to Seattle police chief’s home

August 4, 2020, Frieda Powers

The home of Seattle police Chief Carmen Best was targeted by “peaceful” protesters who were deterred by armed neighbors protecting their property.

Residents in Best’s Snohomish County neighborhood confronted the leftists as they attempted to make their way to her home, making a clear case for the importance of the 2nd Amendment and the protections it offers.

A road into the neighborhood was blocked by residents who also apparently posted on social media about the group of about “200 persons, mostly white men and women in their twenties” who were “dressed in black with masks and black hoods and carried signs that read “Black Lives Matter,”  according to the Lynnwood Times.

“Black Lives Matter protestors shouted profanity and insults at neighbors, took license plate information on vehicles, took pictures of homes, and asked little kids who lived in the neighborhood what schools they attended,” the outlet reported, adding that some of the protesters carried “large duffle bags” and attempted to get to Best’s home in the neighborhood.

One video showed the rude awakening some of the group received by locals who clearly were not going to put up with their antics.

“This is a private drive, get out of the road,” a man can be heard telling the approaching protesters.

“We are peaceful! You pointed a gun at my face!” one protester yelled back to the armed residents.

“That’s why you are peaceful,” the resident quipped.

Best noted that her neighbors “were concerned by such a large group” in a  letter she fired off to Seattle’s City Council, urging the members to “forcefully call for the end of these tactics.” She added that the residents “were successful in ensuring the crowd was not able to trespass or engage in other illegal behavior in the area, despite repeated attempts to do so.”

“The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has been supportive and accommodating to all peaceful protests that have occurred in our jurisdiction,” Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney said in a statement. “With that said, protesters targeting one individual’s house is a bullying tactic that will certainly require an extra patrol response to ensure every resident in Snohomish County can feel safe in their own home, with their loved ones, no matter what they choose to do to make a living.”

Though the activists and the liberal media claimed there was no violence during the event on Saturday, residents who posted on social media called out the “antifa” crowd planning to protest in front of Best’s home, as groups has already done in events targeting the private residences of other City Council members and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

A neighbor reportedly informed residents of Best’s community about the number of cars coming into the area and they soon “established a perimeter to protect her home from possible mischief,” according to Lynnwood Times which also reported that some neighbors were worried after their private information was allegedly disclosed on social media.

“They were very organized. They had radios, talking to each other. They had numbers they used to decal all their cars for who knows what. So, they were identifying all their vehicles individually by number,” one neighbor told the outlet. “They came with a mission…They were out here intimidating us.”

“I feel incredibly unsafe,” another said. “We think it will happen again… Their objective was not completed; they never made it to her house, we stopped them… so we think they will be back.”

“She [Best] thanked us all for banding together,” one neighbor told the Lynnwood Times. “It made us feel awesome. She felt she had to apologize to all of us, that this was happening to us and we said no. We apologized to her that this is happening to her.”

Twitter users applauded the community’s residents for their handling of the protesters.

Joe Biden Denies Taking Cognitive Assessment – After Claiming ‘I’ve Been Tested’

DUNMORE, PENNSYLVANIA - JULY 09: The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden speaks at McGregor Industries on July 09, 2020 in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. The former vice president, who grew up in nearby Scranton, toured a metal works plant in Dunmore in northeastern Pennsylvania and spoke about his economic recovery plan. …

Just weeks after claiming he has “been tested” for cognitive decline, Joe Biden is now saying he has not taken such a test.

Biden was asked if he has taken a mental exam during an interview with the National Association of Black Journalists, and he snapped at Errol Barnett, “No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” before likening such a test to the journalist being tested for cocaine.

Joe Biden’s mental ability is a campaign issue that can’t be ignored: Devine

August 5, 2020 | 10:26pm | Updated

Joe BIden

He might be riding high in the polls, but Joe Biden’s mental acuity increasingly is an issue in the election campaign, and growling at reporters who ask about it is no way to alleviate voter concerns.

Asked during an event with the National Associations of Black and Hispanic Journalists if he had “taken a cognitive test,” Biden snapped.

“No, I haven’t taken a test! Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon, man!”

Frowning and irritated, he paused before ripping into the reporter, Errol Barnett of CBS News.

“That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” said Biden in an interview to be streamed Thursday.

Ouch. Barnett had hit a nerve, and Biden’s flash of anger was a reminder of his interview in May with a black man, radio host Charlamagne tha God, when Biden blurted out the ruinous line that if you vote for Trump, “you ain’t black.”

Kamala Harris typifies the Democrats’ love for dictatorial control

Kamala Harris typifies the Democrats’ love for dictatorial control

Last year, Kamala Harris may have become the first presidential candidate in history to laugh derisively at the idea that the Constitution limits what a president can do.

When Joe Biden said that her plan for gun control by executive fiat didn’t pass constitutional muster, she scoffed and deployed one of her canned one-liners: “I would just say, ‘Hey, Joe, instead of saying, ‘No, we can’t,’ let’s say, ‘yes we can!’  ”

Yes, we can — flippantly blow by the constitutional requirement that new laws be passed by Congress.

Harris was one of the Democratic field’s great enthusiasts for unilateral rule and paid no price whatsoever for it in the campaign. Her presidential bid stalled out for her lack of a message and authenticity, not for her lack of constitutional scruple. In fact, her rejoinder to Biden in the debate got ­applause, and if the ­reporting is to be believed, she now is a ­finalist to join the Biden ticket.

Joe Biden’s Capitulation To The Crazy Left Is Alienating Democrats Like Me

Unlike Biden, Trump is delivering a clear and appealing message: Send kids back to school, support police officers, and get people back to work now.

By Scott J. Street
AUGUST 7, 2020

Last year, Joe Biden’s path to the presidency seemed clear: Treat President Donald Trump as a historical anomaly whom Biden would replace, then restore American values, overcome petty politics, and get government working again. This message was designed to appeal both to Democrats, like me, and to Republican and Independent voters tired of the toxic political environment we’ve suffered since 2016.

That strategy initially worked well. Despite constant attacks from opponents and the press, by March 17, Biden had effectively wrapped up the nomination, and polls showed him trouncing Trump in key states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania.

In recent weeks, however, Biden’s messaging has changed. Now it is pushing millions of voters toward Trump just as regular Americans start paying closer attention to the race. Most Beltway Democrats don’t recognize this, of course. They see polls showing Biden with a large lead over Trump and believe the former vice president is headed for a blowout win.

They might be right, but the winds seem to be changing. Polls that failed to predict the outcome of the 2016 presidential contest seem just as likely to fail now, with 62 percent of Americans afraid to say what they believe because of our toxic political environment. The more Biden caves to the left, the harder it becomes for him to win middle-class voters, especially those in the upper Midwest who typically decide presidential elections.

Leo Terrell Reacts To Biden ‘Diverse’ Comments: ‘The Mindset Of A Plantation Owner’

“Joe Biden is unfit to be president and Joe Biden is a racist,” Terrell said. “Joe Biden has the mindset of a plantation owner. He thinks he knows how every black person thinks, how we walk, what we should eat. Joe Biden doesn’t understand that black people are individuals. Condoleezza Rice and Al Sharpton are different individuals. We have a different mindset.”
