Robert Stacy McCain in noting the race hustle that is going on in Memphis give a piece of solid advice to those who are elevated to sainthood after death only without an examination of their lives to discover “heroic virtue” as the church does:

Don’t resist arrest in Memphis

Just once I’d like to the see the parents in one of these cases say: “I loved my son but he was a thug who got what he deserved.” That kind of declaration would save lives, but doesn’t generate generational wealth.

Speaking of Stacy it’s been many weeks since Elon Musk stated that conservatives who had been banned by the previous regime would be restored but there is still no sign of the @RSMCCAIN account on twitter that used to have 80K+ followers, me among them, however I notice that Ali Alexander has been suspended again. I have no idea what his underlying “offense” was but from what’s being reported the twitter code is practically designed to suspend people on its own.

It’s a great reminder of the wisdom of the start of Psalm 146:3-4

Put no trust in princes,

in children of Adam powerless to save.

Who breathing his last, returns to the earth;

that day all his planning comes to nothing

These type of problems have to be solved by ourselves

I used to feel bad for people in Minnesota for the type of government they managed to get saddled with. I had always presumed that they were sensible midwest folk who had just let the left get too strong a foothold in cities.

And then I see thigs like this:

The Minnesota Senate today passed a bill to enshrine in Minnesota law a right to abortion without limits at any time during pregnancy. Senators approved the bill, H.F. 1, by just a one-vote margin, 34-33. Gov. Tim Walz is expected to sign the sweeping measure into law.

Abortion to the day before delivery? No problem in Minnesota!

It’s news like this that makes me think that Minneapolis voters are reaping what they have sown from their worship of St. George of the fentanyl, after all why should the parent who vote to allow the murder of their kids even to the day before their birth be safe on the streets?

The Cry is “racism” as the Carolina Panthers hired Frank Reich, an experienced coach with a long record for the open job rather than elevate the interim coach of color who had played .500 ball with a .500 team as the man in charge.

Wigdor LLP, the New York City-based law firm that represents Wilks in his discrimination suit against the NFL, was “disturbed” by the Panthers’ hiring process.

“We are shocked and disturbed that after the incredible job Coach Wilks did as the interim coach, including bringing the team back into playoff contention and garnering the support of players and fans, that he was passed over for the head coach position by David Tepper,” the firm said in a statement.

I’ll make a deal with Wigdor LLP. I’ll start worrying about the supposed underrepresentation of blacks among NFL head coaches (10% of the league when blacks represent 11% of the population of the nation) when the NFL address the overrepresentation of blacks among those who play the game making six to eight figure paychecks annually (70% of the players when blacks represent 11% of the country).

Sooner or later an undrafted or released player will sue on those ground claiming “racism” and the fun will begin.

Finally as my wife has been picking up extra days at work to supplement her gardening budget for 2023 I have rediscovered the joys of going to a restaurant with a good book and slowly enjoying a meal while I read.

This week it was Commodore Hornblower by CS Forester I had a first edition sitting on my shelf but a book is not meant to sit on a shelf it’s meant to be read.

It’s amazing how relaxing such a thing can be and it’s a rather large contrast to all the cell phones around me.

Who ever thought reading a good book would be such a radical act?

Today I went to breakfast with DaWife and ended up in front sitting right in front of the TV with the local news on. I don’t do a lot these days. I mentioned yesterday that the March for Life was not newsworthy to the MSM and neither was it for the local Boston news despite many from Massachusetts who traveled there, however an infinitely smaller march in Madison WI in support of abortion was important enough to be covered with film.

For some perspective here is a time lapse of the March For Life this weekend.

I don’t miss local news, I don’t even bother with them for sports anymore, just not trustworthy.

Speaking of things not newsworthy to the local station A member of congress from Massachusetts, and not just any member the #2 Democrat in the house Katherine Clark the house minority whip had her son/daughter/whatever arrested yesterday for assaulting a police officer during Antifa event in Boston Yesterday.

Hey a local member of congress in a leadership position with a kid who is arrested for assaulting a cop in Boston with ANTIFA, that’s GOT to be newsworthy for a Boston station so I watched for it while I was eating breakfast.

Not a mention w

If she had an “R” after her name rather than a “D” it would be THE story trumping even the winter storm.

I did notice that there was a scroll on the screen which mentioned the Monterey Park Shooting. The left had a narrative all in play until the shooter turned out to be an Asian Male and the crime driven by a domestic dispute between a Husband and Wife.

One that became apparent the story suddenly and unsurprisingly became unnewsworthy for the national media. I guess the people who do the crawl for the station didn’t get the updated memo.

There is a lot I can say about the credibility of the MSM but when it comes to discrediting them they do a much better job than I could ever do myself, to wit:

Nothing says “peaceful protest” like a burning police car. David Limbaugh (Rush’s Brother) nails it:

Not if it clashes with the narrative they can’t.

For all the media’s spin on events, dishonest reporting, censorship and pushing narratives, one thing remains true. Reality doesn’t care what the narrative is as demonstrated by this story out of Seattle:

How bad has the rampant crime, spiraling homeless problem, and general dystopian appearance of Seattle, Washington gotten lately? Apparently, the conditions are bad enough that Nike has chosen to permanently shut down its flagship store in the city after 26 years in operation, which it did on Friday. At the same time, Regal Cinemas announced that it would not be renewing its lease on its Meridian 16 multiplex. Neither company has put out an official statement as to their reasons for leaving, but it’s pretty obvious to the residents of the city. Seattle has simply become unlivable over the past couple of years. Between the criminals, the illegal migrants, and the homeless (who are dying in record numbers), the city is almost unrecognizable. 

You can spin violent leftists as the summer of love, you can pretend that there is not problem and the national media can say things are overblown all they want, but in the end business is business and Nike and Regal Cinemas have decided that Seattle is no place for theirs.

Don Corleone: Give this job to Clemenza. I want reliable people, people who aren’t going to be carried away. I mean, we’re not murderers, in spite of what this undertaker thinks...

The Godfather 1972

Being of Sicilian ancestry this story out of LA seemed rather familar:

Los Angeles-area teenager who ran over a mother walking her child in a stroller in Venice in 2021 and received just a few months of diversionary camp as punishment was gunned down in Palmdale this week, according to FOX News.

The hit and run took place when he was fifteen and the video of it went viral but the pleaded sentence was….interesting:

The case made national headlines last year when Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón‘s office sought a five- to seven-month sentence in juvenile probation camp, a punishment for young offenders described as less severe than military school but harsher than summer camp.

Gascón’s office told Fox News Digital at the time that the sentence was “an appropriate resolution.” 

Now mind you this kid had already been caught trying to poison a classmate and the car he hit this woman and her kid with was stolen but this is a blue state and jailing criminals isn’t a priority

Cue Don Corleone:

Don Corleone: I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Don Corleone, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Godfather.” You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to do murder – for money.

Bonasera: I ask you for justice.

Don Corleone: That is not justice. Your daughter is alive.

The woman in question who had been run over with her child reportedly fled the state over the soft on crime business. She had this to say on the subject:

“I think I feel shorted – by the system because they didn’t hold him accountable and sad, not for him, but for his mom a little, because if George Gascón actually did his job this kid would still be alive in jail,” Rachel told FOX News.

Shades of the Trayvon Martin case where not punishing someone for theft for the sake of politics proved deadly

Both of Trayvon’s suspensions during his junior year at Krop High involved crimes that could have led to his prosecution as a juvenile offender. However, Chief Charles Hurley of the Miami-Dade School Police Department (MDSPD) in 2010 had implemented a policy that reduced the number of criiminal reports, manipulating statistics to create the appearance of a reduction in crime within the school system. Less than two weeks before Martin’s death, the school system commended Chief Hurley for “decreasing school-related juvenile delinquency by an impressive 60 percent for the last six months of 2011.” What was actually happening was that crimes were not being reported as crimes, but instead treated as disciplinary infractions.

Now like the Trayvon Martin case there seems to be no direct connection between the crime that young Mr. Baca committed and his shooting death, but I suspect as the criminal justice system in blue states continues to free people guilty of crime, sooner or later the victims will seek justice from another source.

If I was a Mafia Don I’d jump at this potential source of revenue that would only make me popular with the populace and would not likely draw a lot of commendation from police no longer allowed to do their jobs.

If I was a local gang leader I might do the same, of course I suspect that they will not be as careful to make sure that the punishment fits the crime.

Of course I don’t suspect this will be an issue in Georgia.

The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.

Louisiana Gov Edwin Edwards 1983

10th Doctor: Actually, the most impressive thing about you is that after all this time, you’re still bone dead stupid.

Doctor Who The End of Time Part 2 2010

For people who are both supposed to be progressives who have rejected the norms of Christianity and the smartest people in the room our democrat friends seem to be not only out of touch with reality but bone dead stupid as they still think it’s 40 or 50 or sixty years ago.

For example if Edwin Edwards running as a Democrat was caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl today, not only would he lose no votes from the party of “Drag Queen Story Hour” but the media would call anyone who objected “homophobic” if it was a live boy or “necrophobic” if it was a dead girl.

Put simply there is not a registered Democrat or Independent today who will vote against any Democrat based on a sexual tryst of any type.

But you know what a Democrat or independent will vote against a Democrat for, if they think their policies put them in physical danger.

This year both crime and illegal immigration are issues that are killing Democrats in Georgia, New York, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and all over the nation. The rise of violent crime particularly and the fear thereof is front and center almost everywhere.

So I ask this question to the Democrats in media, in politics and online: Ignoring for a moment the facts of this particular case, What narrative would you rather have dominating the news in the week before this election?

Paul Pelosi, husband to the person 2nd in line for the presidency while taking part in a tryst with a man in the Gayest city in America, which is nobody’s business but his own, was injured in his own home when it went bad.


Paul Pelosi husband to the person 2nd in line for the presidency residing in the most Democrat City in the Most Democrat state in the country was violently attacked in his own home by a mentally ill illegal alien who somehow gained access to it.

I submit and suggest the first story wouldn’t cost the left a single vote they hadn’t already lost years ago but the 2nd is dynamite because it suggests that under Democrat rule even the spouse of the one of the richest and most powerful Political leaders isn’t safe in his own home in a year when both crime and illegal immigration are issues front and center.

Now the facts are what they are and hopefully they will all be out there quickly but when I see every Democrat pushing the 2nd line thinking it will hurt the GOP all I can do is laugh and think of Casey Stengal’s famous cry when he saw the ineptitude of his 1962 Mets:

Can’t Anybody Here Play This Game?
