In case you have missed the memo, which I highly doubt, the world is on fire right now. In my opinion as a former Intelligence Analyst, this looks an awful lot like an attempted “color revolution.

This one may be the full monty, or it may be a dress rehearsal for November. I don’t buy for a second this is an organic protest. Someone is pulling the strings, which we can infer from the fact that the protests are worldwide.

The scariest part of this isn’t the popularity or destruction. It is the fact that the government we pay to protect us, has largely decided to sit this one out. While our cities are quite literally on fire, we hear over and over again decisions to pull police back. “Give them space to protest.” Or a decision to just not prosecute anyone. That last bit has probably been the most shocking. How do you encourage bad behavior? As any parent knows, refuse to punish it.

Southern heroes used to be American heroes: Southern Poets and Poems, Part IX


EDWARD COOTE PINKNEY (1802-1828) of Maryland was born and partly raised in England where his father, William Pinkney, was the U.S. Minister.  After publishing a good deal of poetry, he attempted to join the Mexican Navy during that country’s war of independence. From this venture Pinkney returned home to Baltimore, his health shattered.  He continued to write prolifically well-regarded verse until his death at 27.  Pinkney’s grave is located near Sidney Lanier’s in Baltimore.

Roof Koreans: How Civilians Defended Koreatown from Racist Violence During the 1992 LA Riots

 Roof Koreans: How Civilians Defended Koreatown from Racist Violence During the 1992 LA Riots

The riots of the spring of 2020 are far from without precedent in the United States. Indeed, they seem to happen once a generation at least. The 1992 Los Angeles Riots are such an example of these “generational riots.” And while most people know about the riots, less known – though quite well known at the time – were the phenomenon of the so-called “Roof Koreans.”

The Roof Koreans were spontaneous self-defense forces organized by the Korean community of Los Angeles, primarily centered in Koreatown, in response to violent and frequently racist attacks on their communities and businesses by primarily black looters and rioters during the Los Angeles Riots of 1992. Despite their best efforts, over 2,200 Korean-owned businesses were looted or burned to the ground during the riots. It is chilling to imagine how many would have suffered the same fate had the Koreans not been armed.

South Vietnam - New Equipment


The efforts of General Westmoreland and his successors to equip the Vietnamese infantry with modern small arms, communications, and transportation equipment deserving special attention. But then the United States offered to re-equip the ARVN with a newer family of U.S. weapons. With the help of its foreign allies, the Saigon government embarked on an extensive program to upgrade the weapons and equipment of its fighting forces, as well as a program of fringe benefits for servicemen to improve morale. Improved leadership had done much by 1969 to boost ARVN morale and proficiency, but one of the greatest spurs to aggressiveness was the re-outfitting of the armed forces with modern weapons.

Poll: 55% of Democrats Support ‘Defund the Police’; 64% of Americans Oppose

A new poll released Friday showed that 55% of Democrats approve of calls by the Black Lives Matter movement to “defund the police” — though 64% of the country as a whole opposes the idea.
ABC News reported:
Strong majorities of Americans oppose the movement to “defund the police” and some of its most significant goals, specifically reshuffling funding away from law enforcement to support mental health, housing and education programs, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday finds.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans oppose calls for defunding police departments, compared to 34% who back the movement, and 60% specifically oppose reducing the budget for police to reallocate it to other public health and social programs, while 39% support that move.

Democrats stand as the lone faction among the political tribes that approve by a majority of defunding the police (55%) and redirecting it to mental health, housing and education programs (59%).
