Rich punks!

Arrested perps from recent Atlanta, GA rioting, guilty of shooting police officers, massive destruction of property, and a host of other crimes of violence, as it turns out are mostly rich, white punks from places other than Atlanta!

In stark resurrection of the murderous “Weather Underground” of the 1960s, today’s violent ANTIFA thugs are mostly affluent, non-working, non-contributing children of rich, white families, all living comfortably on grandfather’s money!

This armed “Marxist political militia,” operating freely and unhindered throughout America, is shamelessly/openly employed by Democrats in a modern-day pogrom with the goal of intimidating, maiming, and murdering political opponents and destroying their property, in exactly the same way Nazis used the “Sturmabteilung” in the 1930s to accomplish precisely the same goals, and in exactly the same way!

Violent political militias are supposed to be beneath us here in America, but amoral, leftist Democrats have found them (ANTIFA) all too useful, as we see!

These same Democrats simultaneously, smugly insist that the rest of us should have all our guns forcibly confiscated, because they want us all to be “safe.”

What they really want is for their obedient and murderous political militia to be safe, from us!

“Without fail, humans will subjugate other humans, via violence.

To be unarmed is to be subjugated, involuntarily

Never doubt it!” Norwitz

This s the same scenario during the “Summer of Love” in 20-21. Did you really think all those people in the Seattle “CHOP” zone were from Seattle? In Detroit there were busloads of “mostly peaceful protesters” brought in from all over the country. Last I heard, inter-state travel to commit violent crimes WAS a federal crime and was investigated by the fbi. Oh, what was I thinking? A Chicago lawyer headed the team of over 200 members, who interviewed more than 1,400 witnesses and studied FBI reports and film of the confrontations. The report was released on December 1, 1968, characterized the convention violence as a “police riot” and recommended prosecution of police.

Saturday Story

Captain Revenge

I once had a Captain that believed if he gave me enough rope, I’d hang myself. I used to call him Captain Revenge, but never where he could hear me. I’m really not that stupid.

One night he picked me and 3 other’s he didn’t like, and told us he wanted us to go out and write nothing but bicycle citations.

I figured he was planning on us writing 5 or 6 citations each and then goofing off the rest of the shift. Then he could complain about our “non-performance”.

Three hours into the shift I radio’d dispatch asking if the motor pool truck was available. When asked why I needed the truck I replied “we” had confiscated some unlicensed bikes. How many? Well, at last count it was 27 but might be more by the time the truck got there.

There was radio silence and then a voice asked our location.

“University and Wilder” I answered. University and Wilder, was probably the most bicycle traveled intersection in Honolulu, it was right on the edge of the Manoa Campus of the University of Hawaii. So we had stopped every bike coming down the road or off the campus.

All those bikes had to be checked against the stolen bikes print-out I’d made, and 8 of them were reported stolen and since we had given the riders citations and got valid id, the detectives said we could turn them loose and copy the report to the detectives.

Then all those bikes had to be logged, tagged, and entered into evidence. For 27 bicycles, you’re talking a whole lot of paperwork. Enough to keep all 4 of us back at the station, inside, for the rest of the shift.

The Captain was not amused.

So next time, he ordered me to patrol Ala Moana Park, on foot from 6pm to 11pm. I was not to leave the park.

Yep you guessed it. It didn’t work out quite like he expected.

I’m a “sneaky type”, so I walked quietly and looked while I was walking.

Just outside the lights from the Tennis court was a parked car. As I walked by, I noticed there were 2 males in the front seat. They both seemed to be watching the parking lot by the tennis courts, watching so intently they didn’t see me walking by the car.

I looked through the passenger window and low and behold, on the hump between the seat was what appeared to be a 38/357 revolver and a sheathed k-bar knife. And they still didn’t know I was there.

I stepped back into the shadows, called for back-up and waited.

When another patrol unit came down the road, the 2 guys slumped down and the passenger appeared to reach for the pistol.

I turned on my flashlight, aimed it and my revolver inside the car. The patrol unit stopped. Turned on his lights and did the same thing on the driver’s side.

Both occupants were a bit surprised by all the actions. They surrendered without any further actions.

The gun turned out to be another damn pellet gun, but the knife was real enough.

While I did my paperwork ( 2 “Felony”, multiple “Misdemeanors” arrests, towing the vehicle, storage inventory, etc.). In the squad room of course, the detectives interviewed the 2 suspects.

The suspects freely copped out to their plan. They were going to rob the 1st person(s) that walked into the dark area where they had parked.

And they wanted to know how I snuck up on them. They never saw me coming.

The detectives told the Captain I had prevented at least one “armed” robbery and should be commended for my sharp eye and good instincts.

That never happened.

The Captain was not a happy camper. He kept giving me crap and I kept making him eat it. He tried one last time, but that didn’t work out so well either. That’s another story.

Always enjoyed smiling at him.

Friday Motes, Finally?

Don’t be my valentine: A couple years ago there was the “Snitch Out Your Ex’s Gun Stuff” on Valentine’s Day. This year skip the chocolate. It’s called “Love Bites,” and for a donation of $5, $10, or $20, you can name a mealworm, cricket, or veggie after your loved one (or not-so-special someone), then the zoo will feed it to a zoo animal. They will also send an e-card to whoever you named the snack after, letting them know just how delicious they are. The bugs, not your ex.

At it again: Race hustler Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) has a bill she introduced, HR 61, dubbed the “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023.” According to the NYP, HR 61 “aims ‘to prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.’ This legislative trash is an unconstitutional intrusion on privileged speech under the First Amendment. In the unlikely event it passes, if there are any functional, principled courts left in the appellate system, it’ll get slapped down, but probably not before a few individuals get their lives wrecked Jan. 6-style. But why does it only apply to white people? Is it only white people can be racists?

Make you throw up your lunch: Check out this video ; ttps://twitter.com/i/status/1617344069851836418   The “news” shows the last 20 seconds, but if you watch the whole thing, you’ll wanta puke. This freakin’ kid obviously knows what he was doing, that he was totally wrong, and will milk it for everything it’s worth. Tell you what, this guy was a whole lot more patient than I would have been, mom or no mom.

Too much fentanyl:  The production of opium increased sharply in Myanmar, rising to a nine-year high. The UN believes this is driven by economic hardship and insecurity, along with higher global prices for the opium resin that is used to make heroin. Myanmar is the world’s second-largest producer of opium, after Afghanistan.

Oscar night: I will be watching re-runs of “My Mother the Car”. Award shows are a waste of time and consist of a bunch of “elites” patting each other and themselves on the back. Pick up a book.

Saturday Loki and I will be attending “Puppy” school. Amazing what I learn.

Thursday, New Day, Notes

The American way: Four illegal immigrants were busted stealing goods from Macy’s at the Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island, N.Y.: Despite being allowed into the country, given a free cell phone, food, a bus ticket to New York City, and a free room in a midtown Manhattan hotel, four lads from south of the border decided they need more free booty. The greedy purloiners must have thought that Democrats run Macy’s and helped themselves to $12,489 worth of plunder.

F A F O : A “pet” chicken found out. While playing, the chicken named “Hei Hei” pecked the daughters face causing damage and almost striking the child’s eye. The result was heihei nuggets for dinner.

Wow: We’ve watched the first 2 episodes of “Accused”. Incredibly powerful stories, great acting and just fantastic writing. If you haven’t watched it, do it. The first episode with Michael Chiklis was intense and will start conversations.

Check the label: On Tuesday, the EU gave the green light to the sale of the larvae in powder, frozen, paste and dried forms. The crickets can be sold as partially defatted powder. The maggot-like larvae of lesser mealworms — a type of shiny black beetle — and house crickets will become the third and fourth insects that can be sold as food for people in the European Union. Be sure your food in fat free, gluten free, and insect free.

Really tired of this: Joe Biden commemorated MLK day by threatening his fellow citizens. “I love my right-wing friends who talk about the tree of liberty is water of the blood of patriots. If you need to work about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s. You don’t need an AR-15.” Mean tweets are a valid cause to attempt removal of a chief executive. Strutting around like the bully in a neighborhood bar and threatening to target Americans with Hellfire missiles is a sign that the “adults are back in charge.” Have you got that?  His “nazi” like speech last year is another example of Uncle Joe’s intent to keep the single party “large and in charge”. Be aware. Be prepared. Be warned.

The three awesome women in my life.

Loving wife, wonderful middle daughter, and oldest daughter.

Half Week (weak?) Motes

Think again stupid: “At some point in time, Harley Davidson will be all-electric,” the executive [Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz] says. “But that’s a long-term transition that needs to happen. It’s not something you do overnight.” This is what happens when CEOs focus on acceptance by elites in the media, other corporations and governments. Or when they listen to their kids home on break from college. The First rule of sales is “Know your customer.” Just ask AMF.

Hey, did you know: In 1968 at the Chicago Democratic National Convention where there were 10,000 protestors. One out of six were federal undercover agents. You do the math. The city administration issued the first report, blaming the violence on “outside agitators”, described as “revolutionaries” who came to Chicago “for the avowed purpose of a hostile confrontation with law enforcement”.

Especially not in Hawaii: Former Vice President Mike Pence informed Congress Tuesday that he discovered documents bearing classified markings in his Carmel, Indiana, home on Jan. 16 from his time as vice president. Following the revelations that classified documents from President Biden’s tenure as vice president were found at the Penn Biden Center think tank and Wilmington, Delaware, the vice president’s team conducted searches of Pence’s Indiana home and the office of his political advocacy group. Anybody want to bet there are NONE found anywhere associated with the “Teflon Pres”? I didn’t think so.

For thought: “We’ve been conditioned to think that only politicians can solve our problems. But at some point, maybe we will wake-up and recognize that it is the politicians who created our problems. Ben Carson

Will there be a protest: In December 2022, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland announced that her department would expedite plans to build solar farms across tens of thousands of untouched public lands in 11 Western states. The announcement has garnered little to no national attention, save for the occasional report that the Biden administration is expanding renewable energy production. No worries about the bird life, ground cover, and other living things that use that ground. Also, “Screw those hicks who live out there.”

It’s Ruby Tuesday Motes

True love: Congratulations to US astronaut Buzz Aldrin who tied the knot for a fourth time on Friday. Aldrin, a New Jersey native, is best known for his venture to the moon on the Apollo 11 space mission in 1969 with Neil Armstrong. Aldrin married Dr. Anca V Faur, in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles, and are as excited as eloping teenagers.” Faur, 63, has a PhD in chemical engineering and is the executive vice president of Aldrin’s company, Buzz Aldrin Ventures. The pair currently reside in California. I wonder if they “had” to get married. Snicker snicker

Just sayin’: The mutilated body of a prominent Cameroonian journalist was found on Sunday near the capital Yaounde five days after he was abducted by unidentified assailants, the press union and a colleague said on Sunday. XX Just after sunset on Thursday, February 10th, two men in a white Dodge Ram pickup pulled up in front of Heber Lopez Vasquez’s small radio studio in southern Mexico. One man got out, walked inside and shot the 42-year-old journalist dead. Lopez’s 12-year-old son Oscar, the only person with him, hid, Lopez’s brother told Reuters. XX  These reporters were killed for telling the truth. Our reporters get promoted for telling ….not truths. Maybe they are on to something in those places.

World “Economic” Forum: Attendees included 116 Billionaires; 52 heads of state; 600 CEO’s; 56 Finance Ministers; 30 Trade Ministers; 16 American politicians including war veteran John Kerry and fbi director Chris Wray. Hummmm.

Speaking of the “elite” fbi: A former top FBI counterintelligence agent based in New York who investigated the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia in 2016 has been charged with money laundering and violating US sanctions by trying to help Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska evade the penalties, the Justice Department said Monday. Who will investigate the investigator’s?

Nothing here: Just a comment; there have been over 1400 CONVICTIONS of election fraud connected with the 2020 elections. But there was no organized fraud, it’s all coincidence.

Uncle Joe’s choice: Biden named Dr. Demetre Daskalakis as the White House National Monkeypox Response Deputy Coordinator. On Friday Dr. Daskalakis announced that the CDC will now allow you to get the COVID vax, Flu vax, and MonkeyPox vax at the same time.

This is “Doctor” Daskalakis

Yep, that was my thought too.

Monday Monday,dah dah dada( think Mama’s and Papa’s)

Suspicions confirmed: Viet Nm veteran John Kerry let it all hang out in his talk at Davos today. As we reported earlier, Kerry, who served in the Viet Nam war, said that what they all wanted was money, money, money. In addition, combat vet Kerry expressed that he was part of a “select group of human beings” who were called to save the planet. Kerry also served in the Army during the Viet Nam war. War veteran Kerry has always thought very highly of himself.

I like it: For several weeks I was reading comments how bad the re-boot of Night Court was. The original held its own against the likes of Taxi, Barney Miller and Cheers all of which featured great jazz music scores, really good writing, and solid actors. Well, those commentators can kiss my gavel. The new is every bit as good as the original.

Just what we need: Gov. David Ige’s administration wants to create a new statewide police agency that would allow its officers to investigate crimes and enforce laws independently from county police departments, state officials said Friday. Yeah, another “police agency” to just get in the way of all the others. How long before they go undercover on each other?

Four rules: All guns are loaded until YOU unload them. Keep your finger off the trigger until READY to shoot. Never point a gun at anything you aren’t willing to DESTROY. Always know your target AND what’s behind it. Rules: 4  Baldwin: 0

 Real heroes exist: Royce Williams was a real-life “Top Gun” 10 years before Tom Cruise was even born. On a cold November day in 1952, Williams shot down four Soviet fighter jets – and became a legend no one would hear about for more than 50 years. The now 97-year-old former naval aviator was presented with the Navy Cross, the service’s second-highest military honor at a ceremony Friday in California.

A slippery slope: Democratic lawmakers in a handful of states are trying to send a message two years after the “violent attack” on the U.S. Capitol: Those who engage in an attempted overthrow of the government shouldn’t be allowed to run it. Why do I say slippery slope? We all know there was no “violent attack”, but over a thousand citizens have been charged with an incredible number of ludicrous charges. If those in power achieve the legal right to “ban” anyone from office, they will ban anyone that doesn’t agree with them. Remember, a right once lost, is NEVER regained.

Recently a blogger I visit regularly chose to take his own life.  He was sick, and in deep chronic pain and just couldn’t handle it anymore. I know how he feels. Constant unending pain does horrible things to your mind and soul. I hope he has found the peace he deserves.

2023 Shot Show, Las Vegas, NV, First Day:

Why are American gun and ammunition manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, dealers, trainers, and gun-owners so enthusiastically celebrating this 2023 SHOT Show?

In what other nation could we, or anyone, openly celebrate like this?

Within Communist regimes in China, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, etc leftist dictators and their henchmen are simultaneously celebrating the “2023 Whom We Shot Show!”

“Whom We Shot Shows” (that were so enjoyed by Joe Stalin), where films of pitiable, forcibly-disarmed “dissenters” being lined-up and shot to death by impromptu firing squads are being shown to frightened, involuntarily audiences who nervously applaud out of morbid fear that they will be next, whenever their “devotion” doesn’t appear quite genuine enough!

That doesn’t happen here yet, because our domestic Communists (masquerading as “Democrats”) have so-far been unsuccessful in forcibly taking our guns away from us (while they keep theirs).

Isn’t our individual “Right to Keep and Bear Arms” (that is firmly embedded in our nation’s Constitution) a wonderful, fantastic freedom?

It is a personal freedom never enjoyed Communist slaves!

Yes, we boldly cheer our American SHOT Show, in the year of our Lord 2023!

Saturday Story

This is one of my personal favorite stories, and two of my favorite people.

The Cook and The Tattooed Lady

For years one of the favorite bars in downtown Honolulu was “Mickey Hummer’s Downtown Boyd’s Saloon”. Mostly just referred to as Hummer’s.

It was a downtown businessman’s place with a limited menu of sandwiches, soups and salads, and most importantly, CHILI. The place opened Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 8 pm or so. Earlier on Saturdays. Later on Fridays.

The clientele was mostly from the surrounding office buildings, stockbrokers, insurance people and such. So when “Lady Blue” walked in, she got noticed.

It could have been the very small tank top showing lots of boob or the numerous tattoos, but she got your attention. This was the late 70’s and not very many women had full front and back tats and full sleeves.  And Lady Blue, she had it all.

She also had a mad love for life, and infectious laugh, and was just plain fun to be around.

Lady Blue was not young, but certainly not to be considered old. You could say she’d “been around”.

Within a very short period, Blue became a member if the “Hummer’s Saloon” family and was there more nights than she wasn’t. Don’t know what she did for a living but she always seemed to have enough to pay her tab and wasn’t above buying someone else a drink.

Since there was food served, Hummer’s “kitchen” had a cook. At this time it was a youngish (24-26) man with limited life experience but had been a familyresturant cook for most of his life. Sandwichs, salads, and chili were easy for him and it left him lots of time to surf.

Now, I said he had limited “life experience”; this went for women as well. And very few people had ever had experience with a free spirit like Lady Blue. They met one afternoon while he was sitting at the bar making a shopping list.

Lady Blue sat down next to him, asked his name, and decided he was just the cutest thing she’s seen in a long time. They started talking, she started showing him her tats and they were still at it come closing time.

That became a daily occurance. He’d wait at the end of the bar after his shift, she’s come in and they’d talk and laugh and act like a couple of high school sweethearts.

It continued for several weeks and nobody thought about it until the bar opened one Monday morning. Lying on the floor under the mail slot was the door key and a note.

As you can guess, the note was from the cook.

He and Blue were leaving together. They were going to see the world, live large, and she was going to be his guide. We never saw either of them again.

But I know 2 things for sure;

  • He probably saw more of life than most people ever do
  • And, it most defiantly was a wild ride.

Friday, Almost the Weekend Motes

Unholy crap:  British cop, who served in London’s Metropolitan Police force, has been described as one of the country’s most prolific sex offenders in history after he admitted to numerous sex crimes over an 18-year period. The officer to 49 charges of sexual assault — including 24 rape counts — during an appearance at London’s Southwark Crown Court on Monday. The heinous crimes were committed between 2003 and 2020. The serial rapist, 47, admitted multiple counts of rape, violence and sexual assault against 12 different women. The disgraced cop was previously slapped with over 80 sexual abuse charges — including at least 48 counts of rape — last month. Met Police Commissioner Mark Rowley said the defendant “should not have been a police officer.” Ya think?  No Internal Affairs? No sex crimes detectives? No investigations? WTF

Soon to be no more: One of the world’s strictest anti-tobacco laws has been imposed in Mexico, setting in force a total ban on smoking in public places, including hotels, beaches and parks. The new law, which is part of the country’s General Law for Tobacco Control reform, came into force on Sunday. It will also see the total ban on the promotion, advertising and sponsorship of tobacco products. The sale and use of e-cigarettes and vapes are also due to face new restrictions. Geez, I remember when it was common, no a custom, to light up a smoke after a meal of during Happy Hour. They’ll have to form a new “Tobacco Police” to arrest everyone. They’ll have to issue a lot of citations to make up for the lost tax revenue.

A sad Good-Bye: As Italy was pulling itself from the rubble of World War II and the grinding oppression of fascism, a young actress emerged as the face of la dolce vita, a siren beckoning Romans to once again indulge, celebrate and embrace. Forever beloved in her homeland, Gina Lollobrigida, 95, died in Rome, the Italian news agency Lapresse said, quoting Tuscany Gov. Eugenio Giani. Lollobrigida was an honorary citizen of a Tuscan town. Her accolades, and boyfriends, are too many to mention. A woman of her beauty, grace, and fire will always be welcome at the Table of Heroes.

Oh hell no: Joe Biden met last week in Mexico City with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the 10th North American Leaders’ Summit. The three leaders signed onto a document that looks like a prelude to a North American Union, which the globalists talked a lot about during the George W. Bush presidency. It looks like the push toward a merger of the U.S., Canada and Mexico may be back on the front burner if this document is any indication. Uncle Joe, you really want to start that Second Civil War? Try putting this into effect, that’ll get things going quick.

Oops: I got the words “jacuzzi” and “yakuza” confused. Now I’m in hot water with the Japanese mafia.
