No, I Absolutely DO NOT STIPULATE That Kyle Rittenhouse Shouldn’t Have Been In Kenosha

Image Image
  • The thing that has gone wrong in America for Kyle Rittenhouse to have to do this is that men are no longer men, that they have allowed a Marxist revolution to steal the country, and that no one has the stomach left for having and keeping liberty.  What has happened to the effete, cloistered, foppish, dainty men in America?  Good Lord. 
It has become all the rage.  That is, to partially defend Kyle’s actions as probable self defense, but then to raise the following stipulations.  First up, Leon Wolf writing at The Blaze.
Kyle Rittenhouse should not have been patrolling the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Tuesday night. Whatever failures might have existed on the part of state and local government (and there appear to have been many), the idea of a 17-year-old with a loaded rifle being dropped into that powder keg can only happen when some horribly bad judgment has occurred.
We’ll get to that in a minute.  Next up, Steven Hayward writing at Powerline.
Let’s stipulate starting out that Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, who has been arrested and charged with murder for shooting two people during the Kenosha riots two nights ago, should not have been present at the scene with a semi-auto rifle. That’s no place for a 17-year-old, even if he is a regular at the gun range. And resorting to vigilantism is a sure path to a breakdown in the rule of law and perhaps even open civil war.
Steven is massively naive.  He raises two points – his age, and the resort to “vigilantism.”  Let’s hold in abatement the issue of age for a moment.  As for vigilantism, surely he isn’t thinking clearly or perhaps hasn’t admitted the truth to himself.

The King Street Riot of 1876: Part 2, Conclusion, of

 St. Matthew's German Evangelical Lutheran Church, the way it looked in 1876 (1883 photo).

The next night, Wednesday, September 6, 1876, the Democratic Hampton and Tilden Colored Club of Ward 4 met at Archer's Hall, corner of King and George Streets. The meeting was conducted by black Democrat J. B. Jenkins, vice-president, with some whites present. White lawyer Joseph W. Barnwell spoke as did several blacks including Jenkins himself, Isaac B. Rivers and J. W. Sawyer. There had been a threat made that two black Republican gangs, the Live Oak and Hunkidory Clubs, planned to break up the meeting and kill the black Democrats, so when the meeting adjourned around 10:15 p.m., each black Democrat was put in the middle of six or seven whites2 and the line headed out onto King Street led by Joseph Barnwell. 

GOA: Media Demonizes Apparent Self-Defender Kyle Rittenhouse

Gun Owners of America (GOA) Senior Vice President Erich Pratt released the following statement on Kyle Rittenhouse’s citizen-involved shooting:

“Based upon publicly available video evidence, it appears that Kyle Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense. And despite fake news media reports, it is clear that Kyle was not firing indiscriminately into a crowd.
“GOA has reached out to Rittenhouse’s attorneys and the Lake County Public Defender’s office, and we have our own attorneys use of force experts looking into this case, as well. In the meantime, we demand fair treatment from the media, because up till now, their coverage has been horrific. With no evidence, they have labeled Kyle as a racist and a vigilante, but that just indicates how the media elites view all gun owners.
“More to the point, the media has given more favorable coverage to rioters and looters over the past several months than to gun owners who appear to be protecting their lives from violent attackers. The media excuses the violent torching of American cities as ‘mostly peaceful’ protests. And they now minimize the hatefulness of Kyle’s attackers, calling them mere ‘protesters.’
“But if Leftists want to question why Kyle Rittenhouse was in Kenosha, then they should begin by asking that question to the ‘protesters’ who have criminal records and who have come from out of town to terrorize business owners.
“The bottom line is this: every human being has a God-given right to protect themselves. And when a person’s life is under attack, the Constitution protects their ability to use firearms without ‘infringement’ in the defense of that life.”

Big-Name Legal Team Steps Up To Help Kyle Rittenhouse Fight Kenosha Murder Charges


Illinois teen Kyle Rittenhouse will not be alone as he faces murder charges related to a shooting Tuesday night during the chaotic rioting that has ripped through Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Attorney Lin Wood has rallied to find the teen the best legal representation he can have.
Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, Illinois, was arrested Wednesday to face charges of first-degree homicide in connection with the shooting deaths of two people during rioting in Kenosha.

Wood, who has represented former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann in his lawsuits against media outlets that smeared him and his Kentucky classmates in relation to an incident at the 2019 March for Life, led a very public charge to find Rittenhouse a good criminal attorney in response to a tweet from Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley, a member of the progressive “squad” of House members. The Massachusetts congresswoman called Rittenhouse a “terrorist.”

SARS-CoV2 and the Rise of Medical Technocracy. Lee Merritt, M.D.

Via Terry

This is a link to presentation provided by Lee Merritt, M.D. on the big lie about the virus itself, the "preventative" measures that are just the opposite, and the suppression of a safe, effective, and inexpensive solution in the form of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ.)

A couple corrections:

One slide states that the Ebola particle size is 1.0 micron (1000 nanometers) - it is actually 0.08 microns (80 nanometers)

She states that hydoxychloroquine (HCQ) acidifies the cell environment - it is just the opposite, HCQ is a weak base, it reduces the acidity of the environment, and viruses prefer acidic environments - that's one of the ways that HCQ works

Apart from those two mistakes, I found the presentation very enlightening, and the Marxist background of the WHO Director especially so. That explains much.

Dr. Merritt's presentation complements, but is not as complete, nor as detailed, as that provided by America's Front Line Doctors a couple weeks prior. In particular, the first 15 minutes of the second session, on the 5 specific mechanisms as to how and why HCQ works, and why zinc is an important component to that protocol as well.

Comment on Fight For Your Life

This will be obvious to most here:
DON"T get separated from your unit.
Cover your face and wear gloves.
Use a brass catcher if possible.
Buddy teams - never lose sight of your buddy.
Drill the Center Peel - you and your buddy can get out of a lot of trouble using that.
Brock - sorry if this was submitted twice.
Best Regards,

Elderly man defending store during Kenosha riots has jaw broken

An elderly man’s jaw was broken in a sickening caught-on-camera attack as he tried to protect a store that was eventually torched during the Kenosha protests, according to reports.

The man — only identified as Robert and in his 70s — ran toward a mattress store where he works and used a fire extinguisher to chase away arsonists who broke in Monday night during protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, his bosses told Fox6.

“They just threw a bottle at this guy,” a woman filming a now-viral video complained — seconds before a man dressed all in black ran up and knocked him down with a punch to the head.

“No! No! No!” the videographer repeatedly cried as the senior collapsed to the ground, leaving a woman crying hysterically.

Commies who were injured and killed. Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish.

David just pointed out that I had his weight wrong. Being a humble sinner I can only say I am truly sorry........:)
