Mid-Motes For Mid-Week

Further destroying America: A provision of President Joe Biden’s proposed $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, the American Jobs Plan, would erode “right-to-work” laws in states that do not force workers to join a union, and would include a controversial “card check” system. “Card check” does away with the secret ballot, and it could allow union organizers to intimidate workers — which is why even former Democratic Party presidential nominee George McGovern oppose the idea in 2008. Democrats claimed they were helping workers’ rights, calling “card check” the “Employee Free Choice Act.” This will continue to keep the unions in power, with your money.

It’s not journalism anymore: In accepting the Edward R. Murrow Award for Lifetime Achievement in Journalism on Tuesday, NBC News anchor Lester Holt gave a monologue on why “fairness” in journalism is “overrated.” Holt is squarely admitting what those on the right have recognized for quite some time. It’s not journalism. It’s propaganda.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Her killer still walks free.

Don’t let Uncle Joe read the news: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed a law allowing him to potentially hold onto power until 2036, a move that formalizes constitutional changes endorsed in a vote last year. Nobody tell Kamala either.

Has America been overloaded with “mass shooting” : After Atlanta (3/16), Boulder (3/23), and Houston (3/20), it seems like shootings just aren’t getting the media time they were. Could be everyone is just fed up? Or was the gun ban feedback so hostile they’ve decided to drop it for a while? They Dropped the Ashli Babbitt murder fast enough. Oh wait, they never followed it.

New words I like: Seems like everyone is coming up with new terms, names, and words. Like, “cisgender, heteronormativity inflicting violence our communities” or “my name is Blackwater Person”. But the best I’ve heard lately is “Herbacious inhalations”. Yeah, that one I could get behind.

Motes For A Second Monday

Not a Big scoop: Biden pooch craps in the WH. Well, his owner has been doing it for some time. Why should the dog be any different?

Yes, yes she is: Is AOC the dumbest “college graduate” ever? She says the use of the word “surge” with migrants at the border, is to summon images of Nazi “insurgents” and is a white supremist viewpoint. This means it’s a racist point of view and you should be ashamed.

Language sheriff: On Monday, Arkansas’ legislature passed a bill preventing minors from receiving sex change surgery, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and other medical procedures. Actress Sophia Bush has blasted Arkansas’ new law banning minors from receiving sex-change operations, puberty blockers, and other life-altering medical procedures, saying the legislation is “tantamount to murder.” The law only applies to minors. ˈtan(t)əˌmount/adjective; “equivalent in seriousness to; virtually the same as.” So, no Sophia, it’s not. You are literally using that word incorrectly. 😊

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. But nobody seems to be speaking up for her.

Part of the oath:  On his application form to join the Metropolitan Police, Ben Hannam was asked if he had ever been in the far-right British National Party or any organisations whose aims “may contradict the duty to promote race equality”. He ticked “no”. Now it appears he was a member of the neo-Nazi movement. I’m not commenting on the lack of background check, or the lack of anyone discovering Hannam was autistic before hiring him as a police officer. What I want to point out the oath includes “the duty to promote race equality”. A police officer’s job is to enforce the laws of the city, state, and nation. Not to enforce “right-think”.

Am I the only one surprised there was no further problems with the ship stuck in the Suez Canal? I was pretty sure it getting stuck was just the start. Maybe it was just a test.

Destroying America: During an interview with ESPN aired on Wednesday’s “SportsCenter,” President Joe Biden said he would “strongly support” Major League Baseball moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta over Georgia’s election law. What ever happened to States Rights? Since when does a sitting president urge financial repercussions against a state that actually (49.5 v 49.2) voted for his election?

Remember to always use the correct pronoun. Azzhole and shixhead are gender neutral.

Oh Crap, More Monday…Motes

Why is everyone (or anyone) surprised: It is reported NY Gov. Cuomo gave preferential treatment to family relatives and New York elites at state coronavirus testing centers. If you consider his other actions, and those of his brother, it should be absolutely no surprise. Likewise, it’s no surprise CNN is not covering the numerous “inappropriate” complaints being leveled at El Governor. He was elected to “rule” and “lead”, not represent. Just ask him.

They don’t even see their own Hypocrisy:  Al Sharpton predicted Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that boycotts of Georgia-based companies for not publicly opposing Georgia’s new voting law would be successful. Then he comments, “Veterans gave their lives to protect the democracy, and to think that some of those veterans could be, from Georgia, or from one of the 43 other states that are changing election laws is to really make mockery of what veterans have given their lives for.” So, if my state makes a law that you don’t agree with, you don’t live in my state, and you financially force my state to change that law, that’s “DEMOCRACY”? No, that isn’t. As a veteran, which Al is not, I fought for everyone, and every state, to make up their own mind. Whether you like it or not.

Not equal under the law: Ashli Babbitt was the only person shot and killed at the D.C. peaceful insurrection. Since January 6th, 388 people have been arrested for their actions on January 6th at the Capitol. One of those charged is a member of Antifa. But nobody has been arrested or charged with Ashli’s murder.

Don’t call 911: Richard Pusey, who filmed four dying police officers at a crash last year while describing it as justice was “probably the most hated man in Australia,” a judge said Wednesday while considering his sentence. Stopped for speeding, the driver watched as the cops were struck by a passing truck then videoed the dying officers, with commentary. As other witnesses rushed to help, Pusey got out his phone and made two videos of the scene. He zoomed in on the faces and the injuries of the three male and one female officers and called the officers vulgarities. Others at the scene urged Pusey to help, but he shrugged them off, saying “they’re dead.” His attorney says Pusey has a severe personality disorder, including anti-authority traits. I say don’t call 911, ain’t nobody coming for you.

If I post a picture of me holding the severed head of Kathy Griffin, still dripping blood, is there anybody that doesn’t think I’ll be arrested and prosecuted? I didn’t think so.

Coopers Principles of Personnel Defense

Principle Six: Ruthlessness

Anyone who willfully and maliciously attacks another without sufficient cause deserves no consideration. While both moral and legal precepts enjoin us against so-called “overreaction,” we are fully justified in valuing the life and person of an intended victim more highly than the life of a pernicious assailant. The attacker must be stopped. At once and completely. Just who he is, why he has chosen to be a criminal, his social background, his ideological or psychological motivation, and the extent of injury he incurs as a result of his acts-these may all be considered at some future date. Now, your first concern is to stay alive.

Let your attacker worry about his life. Don’t hold back. Strike no more after he is incapable of further action, but see that he is stopped. The law forbids you to take revenge, but it permits you to prevent. What you do to prevent further felonious assault, as long as the felon is still capable of action, is justified. So make sure, and do not be restrained by considerations of forbearance. They can get you killed.

An armed man, especially if he is armed with a firearm, is dangerous as long as he is conscious. Take no chances. Put him out.

If you must use your hands, use them with all the strength you possess. Tapping your assailant half-heartedly, for fear of hurting him, will indeed make him mad, and since he has already shown that he is willing to kill you, he may try even harder now that you have struck him a painful though indecisive blow. If you choose to strike, by all means strike hard.

This also applies to shooting. If you are justified in shooting you are justified in killing, in all but a few quite obvious circumstances. Don’t try to be fancy. Shoot for the center of mass. The world is full of decent people. Criminals we can do without.

We often hear it said-especially by certain police spokesmen who, it seems to me, should know better-that in the event of victimization the victim should offer no resistance, for fear of arousing his assailant. Perhaps we should ignore the craven exhortation to cowardice made here. “Honor” may in truth be an obsolete word. So let us consider only results.

The Sharon Tate party did not resist. The Starkweather victims did not resist. The La Biancas did not resist. Mitrione did not resist. The next time some “expert” tells me not to resist I may become abusive. Apart from the odds that you will be killed anyway if you submit to threats of violence, it would seem-especially in today’s world of permissive atrocity -that it may be your social duty to resist. The law seems completely disinclined to discourage violent crime.

The sociopath who attacks you has little to fear, at this writing, from either the police or the courts. The chief of police of our capital city has stated in print that, “The greatest real and immediate hazard that the hold-up man faces is the possibility that his victim may be armed and might shoot the criminal.” (U.S. News and World Report, 8 December 1969, page 35.)

The syntax may be a bit garbled, but the meaning is clear. If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught to fear is his victim. If a felon attacks you and lives, he will reasonably conclude that he can do it again. By submitting to him, you not only imperil your own life, but you jeopardize the lives of others.

The first man who resisted Starkweather, after eleven murders, overcame him easily and without injury. If that man had been the first to be accosted, eleven innocent people would have been spared.

The coddling of murderers has brought us to an evil pass. If it is truly a wise and just policy (which we may have serious reason to doubt), leave it to the courts. When your life is in danger, forget it. If you find yourself under lethal attack don’t be kind. Be harsh. Be tough. Be ruthless.

Saturday Story

But of all the people I have ever known, the finest was the City and County, Prosecutor Charles Marsland. I first met him when he was serving as a deputy corporation counsel, City Defense Attorney, and I was being sued for the 1st time as a police officer.

It was a narcotics bust that had resulted in one of the sellers getting froggy and getting his jaw broken. Honest, Sid only hit him once but since Sid had arms bigger than the average mans thighs, it only took one.

Chuck had been assigned as our City Defense Attorney and he and I hit it off right away.

He was always very polite, nicely dressed, but you could always see a twinkle in his eyes.

He drove his signature Lincoln convertible as long as I knew him.

He wore a short, well clipped mustache that when he was really concentrating he would brush up and down with the fore finger of his hand. You could always tell when he was really thinking, that mustache would be brushed up and down faster and faster.

I shared a couple of community college classes with his son, Charles III. Chucker was also a doorman at a local club, The Point After. A club attended by both cops and crooks.

Charles III shared his father’s conservative attitude, was very pro-police and not afraid to speak up.

I’m not really sure which of these traits was responsible, but one of them resulted in Chucker’s murder. Her was found shot to death in 1975.

Charles Marsland was the 1st person “elected” as the City and County Prosecutor serving 2 terms in that position.

During those years, he took that office to a new level of competency and professionalism.

He would establish an investigative office and initiate cases outside or parallel with the police department.

Marsland will mostly be remembered for his crusade, vendetta, or investigations into Hawaii Organized Crime.

Objects of the investigations would claim harassment and vendetta.

The newspapers and TV reporters would use the words crusade and relentless investigations.

I guess it would depend on which end of it you were on.

All of this has been written to death. All the pros, cons, love and hate that surrounded Charles Marsland and his tenure as Prosecutor has been written to death.

To me Chuck was a kind, gentle man who loved life and his son.

He was aggressive and tenacious warrior for law and justice. For Chuck, those two weren’t always the same, but they were the goals he reached for.

Charles Marsland passed away 2007. He will be remembered.

Friday Motes, About Time

How about that V-P: Talk about standing up for your ideals. Yes sir, she don’t care if Uncle Joe wants her to do her job. No sir, she doesn’t  have to do anything he says. Especially go down to that nasty border and do something about those “immigrants”. No sir, not my V-P. (See what I did there?)

She has no idea: “The police, I think really believe and in some ways are led to believe that their greatest challenge and their greatest choir is to keep black people in their place.” Says the 81 y-o woman with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, has never actually held a real job, whose net worth is estimated at $2m and whose husband’s net worth is about $5m. Not bad for a “public servant”, Slapsy Maxy Waters.

Never heard it ‘splained any better. (mooseintheyard.blogspot)

Not a president: If Uncle Joe decides to use executive orders to circumvent the 2nd Amendment, allow lawsuits against firearms makers, and enact further Federal firearms regulations, he will be by-passing the legislative branch and he is not a “president”, he is a dictator.

If the cops are looking, don’t televise your cooking: After seven years on the run, Marc Feren Claude Biart was tracked down through a You Tube cooking channel he started with his wife, Italian Police said in a statement. The alleged gangster’s “love for Italian cuisine” — and tattoo ink — made his arrest possible, police said. Though he carefully hid his face, Biart failed to disguise his distinctive body tattoos, they added. He had been wanted for allegedly trafficking cocaine from the Netherlands since 2014, police said.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Her killer is known, but still uncharged.

Anti-Asian violence:  Is it only me, but it seems like every tv news video I see about “anti-Asian” violence, the violence is perpetrated by a black male against an elderly Asian. But we keep being told it’s “white supremacy” we need to be afraid of. Last week, two black teenage girls, killed and robbed an Uber Eats driver, two black teenage boys have been arrested for setting a white disabled man on fire and he died. But, it’s all about “white supremacy”. Huh?

Honolulu again this weekend, maybe I’ll get done what I didn’t do last week.

Thursday Motes To Think On

Dancing in the blood of innocents: The “gun control”  groups have no shame. The have enlisted the relatives of Pearl Harbor shooting victim Roldan Augustin. They are working with the “Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence”. Just to cover some history, a submarine sailor, Gabriel Romero, opened fire while on duty at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. He was “on-duty” security, in uniform, and used a government issued firearm to commit this attack. No civilian laws would apply in this incident. No laws that could be passed would have averted or prevented this action. But that won’t stop the “Brady” bunch from trying to disarm the rest of the nation.

Once again the “elite” are mad at a state they don’t live in: Georgia recently passed some voting laws. These laws only apply to Georgia. The usual Hollywierd’s have started, again, to scream and complain. None of them live in Georgia, but it’s “for all the people”. Please SDASTFU.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Change my mind.

Becoming the new “law”: Salem, Oregon, several black clad “antifa” thugs turned out to head off what the thought were a bunch of white supremacists, consisting of one old white man. His truck was pummeled by debris, shattering windows and hitting him. As he gets out of his truck, the terrorists peaceful protesters continue to throw objects at him as they close in. Surrounded and under direct threat, the old man draws his pistol and racks a round. Seconds later police come running in. Cops draw their weapons and order the old man to the ground. He tosses his gun into the bed of his pickup truck as he hits the ground, arms outstretched. Twitter users refer to the “far right” as being the cowards, yet apparently has no issue with gangs of able bodied 20’s somethings of antifa ganging up on an old man.

Chicago last weekend,36 shot, 4 dead. But doesn’t Chicago has strict gun control laws in place already?

This is a shame: A 58-year-old man who was facing execution for terrorizing an Idaho family — torturing and murdering a 9-year-old boy after also killing his brother, mom, and his mom’s boyfriend — has died of brain cancer, officials said. Thea shame is that this PoS was allowed to live 15 years after killing 8 people, 6 of them children, after being sentenced to death 3 times.. I hope is soul his in flames.

Rules for them, not for you: A plan to house migrant children from the surging crisis at the US-Mexico border will leave a Renton foster family with no place to call home. Edmundo Serena Sanchez said he and his wife were notified in February that they would have to vacate the Renton house where they have nurtured and raised Washington state foster children for nearly seven years. The couple have fostered about 20 children over the years in the spacious house along Lake Washington. The house is part of a campus of facilities owned by the Friends of Youth, a non-profit based in Kirkland with a 70-year history of providing services and housing for homeless and foster youth. So much for the Constitution. Then Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution reads as follows: “Nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Oh, and Renton WA is 1,264 miles from the Mexican Border. But I haven’t heard a word from the MSM about the .gov bussing “children” across the country. Literally.

Hump Day Motes

  Some people have no shame: A Girl Scout troop leader from Ohio has been indicted for her alleged role in pocketing money from cookie sales and event fees. Jill Gauthier, of Pataskala, has been indicted for her alleged role in the theft.    Gauthier, 49, is said to have transferred $12,500 into her personal bank accounts in a span of about five years, according to an investigation. She    deserves an “adult-size timeout”, say 3 ½ to 5 years.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Why has no one had to answer for this murder?

Invalid Conclusion: “Americans are broadly in favor of regulations on assault weapons and background checks for gun purchases, a new poll finds”.  However, these measures are likely to only have a moderate impact on rates of violence. The poll conducted March 19-21 (after the shootings in Atlanta but before the shooting in Boulder), surveyed 1291 likely voters. So, they based this “conclusion” on .00003912 percent of the country. HUH? Remember what I say about polls. By asking the question in the right way, in the right location, I can make a poll say anything the guy that pays me wants it to say.

Sad Good-Bye: Larry McMurtry, the Texas-born novelist who authored Lonesome Dove, The Last Picture Show and Terms of Endearment and won an Oscar for co-writing the adapted screenplay for Brokeback Mountain, has died. He was 84. McMurtry was the author of 29 novels, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lonesome Dove, three memoirs, two collections of essays and more than 30 screenplays. He wrote five pages a day — no more, no less — on a manual typewriter. His talent will live forever in his pages.

Green future: Oahu ratepayers may face a significant increase in electricity costs in late 2022, as the island’s power company turns to oil temporarily to fill the gap when it shutters a coal-burning power plant now producing about one fifth of the island’s power. Anytime they say “may” you can replace it with “will” and always be accurate.

From “pjmedia”: “Nancy Pelosi Falsely Claims She Can Unseat ‘Any Member of Congress’ She Wants.” When the hell did an old crone, elected to “represent” (and I use that term in its widest meaning) the state of Calipornia, become the most powerful person in the country? When did she become the know all/be all of the U.S. legislative system? Why the hell are the people putting up with it? My head hurts.

The next cancel target?

Late news, a sad Goodbye: G.Gordon Liddy, 90. I was introduced to Liddy years ago by our mutual friend the late Tiger Wong. One year for Tiger’s birthday Liddy sent a video message of respect.He was a class Like Tiger, Liddy was a man of honor, courage, and respect. He will be missed.

Tuesday, (I got nothing) :)

You don’t have the right: Hawaii’s strict limit on carrying firearms is lawful, a panel of federal appeals court judges ruled Wednesday in a lawsuit by a man who tried unsuccessfully several times to obtain a license to carry a loaded gun in public. He first filed his lawsuit in 2012, 9 years ago. Three federal appeals court judges later ruled in his favor but the state asked for a fuller panel of judges to hear the case. The newest ruling says, “the Second Amendment does not guarantee an unfettered, general right to openly carry arms in public for individual self-defense. Accordingly, Hawai‘i’s firearms-carry scheme is lawful.” The ruling comes on the same day the Hawaii attorney general’s office issued a report showing that all private citizens who applied for licenses to carry a gun in public in 2020 were denied. Part of the problem is finding legal representation. In Hawaii, any attorney that takes on the Demo power structure, on anything, especially trying arm the citizen, better be independently wealthy. Just saying.

Lawyers will say anything: Lawyers representing attorney Sidney Powell, who was sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems in January, argued this week that “no reasonable person” would have believed her claims about election fraud and she is therefore not liable. Powell had pursued a theory that Dominion voting machines, operating with Smartmatic software, were manipulable and had been responsible for switching votes from Trump to Democratic challenger Joe Biden. So, was she lying then, or lying now? Can’t be both.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. A Capitol Security “Special Agent” murdered her. Why hasn’t he had to answer this accusation.

A PoS for an employer: A man from Fayetteville, Georgia, got his final, overdue paycheck from a local auto shop in the form of a pile of pennies with a note that read “f**k you” attached to it. The 91,515 coins, covered in motor oil, weighed about 504 pounds, and were delivered to the worker after he was forced to contact the government to get his last pay stub. Walker, the former employer, did speak with other local media outlets. He told FOX 5 that he had paid Flaten in U.S. currency and did not wish to speak further on the matter. When questioned, Walker finally responded, “I don’t know if I did that or not,” Walker said in a brief interview when questioned about the pennies. “I don’t really remember. It doesn’t matter; he got paid, that’s all that matters.” Guy should run for office, he’s already got the answers down. Besides, everyone already hates him.

I’m sorry this didn’t post yesterday. Welcome home my Brothers.

Monday Motes, Already?

Now is not the same as then: Where’s AOC and her tears now? How come she’s not outside the cage’s pods with her cameraman?

Two sides to every switch: Lots of woke people complaining about this tv show, or that actor. I got a novel approach. If you don’t like it, turn it off. There, problem solved.

It’s only okay to question an election outcome if you’re a Democrat: Stacey Abrams was exhibit A. Nancy Pelosi is exhibit B. Earlier this month, the Democratic speaker gave the House Administration Committee her blessing to move forward with a probe into failed candidate Rita Hart’s challenge in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District. Hart lost the race to freshman Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks by six votes, a result certified by bipartisan state election officials after multiple recounts. So, it’s okay to demand multiple re-counts until you get the outcome you want.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Why hasn’t the killer had to answer ?

Great argument:  (From https://www.learnliberty.org/ )

Them: I don’t want to take away dog owners’ rights. But we need to do something about Pitbull’s.

Us: So what do you propose?

Them: I just think that there should be some sort of training or restrictions on owning an attack dog.

Us: Wait. What’s an “attack dog”?

Them: You know what I mean. Like military dogs.

Us: Huh? Pitbulls aren’t military dogs. In fact “military dogs” isn’t a thing. You mean like German Shepherds?

Them: Don’t be ridiculous. Nobody’s trying to take away your German Shepherds. But civilians shouldn’t own fighting dogs.

Us: I have no idea what dogs you’re talking about now.

Them: You’re being both picky and obtuse. You know I mean hounds.

Us: What the #$&@.

Them: OK, maybe not actually ::air quotes:: hounds ::air quotes::. Maybe I have the terminology wrong. I’m not obsessed with vicious dogs like you. But we can identify kinds of dogs that civilians just don’t need to own.

Us: You can?

But nobody wants to take away your dogs. Let’s just practice some commonsense restrictions.

They said Spring Break could be dangerous: Two out-of-town visitors to South Florida were bitten by sharks last week, and both wounds are suspected to have been inflicted by blacktip sharks. those who venture into the water should be aware that one of the world’s largest shark migrations is going on right now.

Just info: Forty years ago I took the Border Patrol entrance exam. I passed in the upper 8%, of the nation. They then passed a hiring freeze. By the time they raised the freeze, I was 57 days too old.
