Attn Allahpundit Trump is Making Inslee’s and Durkin’s production of #CluelessInSeattle Go National

We interrupt our series on a world without police in order to explain to Allahpundit, whose take on the President and Seattle is clueless on Seattle:

It’s the Insurrection Act debate all over again. Rather than wait for evidence that local cops and the National Guard can’t deal with the problem themselves, he’s trying to bigfoot local officials by inserting the military into the situation. He really wants a presidential show of force against Americans to underline his “law and order” message.

and explain exactly what Trump is doing.

What’s most odd about this cluelessness is that he almost gets it when he gives POTUS advice on what he should do.

Trump should skip the tough-guy chatter and instead calmly emphasize that a Democratic-run city can’t be trusted to protect its own citizens from woke thugs. Turn up the heat politically on Inslee and Durkan by focusing on their complicity in the takeover, minus any threats. Let voters draw their own conclusions about whether to empower Democrats at the national level this fall.

What Allah doesn’t understand is that this is exactly what POTUS is doing by tweeting the whole “you handle it or I will” stuff because he understand DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of media outrage that states:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

At a time when the Democrat / Media / left is desperately trying to spin away any contention that they want to disband and/or defund police (not to mention whitewashing protests and looting in general and ANTIFA in particularly the last thing you need is a black ANTIFA warlord taking over parts of a Democrat city, beating people who disagree with him ,extorting cash from merchants and building a friggen wall around the area becoming a national story.

Or do you think it was a coincidence that the Governor felt safe in pretending he had no idea what was happening

‘That’s news to me.’: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee gets the giggles when asked about Seattle being taken over by anarchists

He knows the media is in the tank for the Democrat / Antifa / left . As long as the national media continued to ignore or downplay the story he could pretend it wasn’t happening and minimize any Damage to the Democrats both locally and nationally.

However once POTUS Tweeted what’s going on in Seattle becomes a national if not an international story. Now it forces a response, and from some a really stupid one as even Allah notes:

It says a lot about the country in 2020 that both the governor and the mayor thought there’d be more political benefit from goofing on him and his demands than from siding with him against an armed occupation of several city blocks:

Click to view Durkan’s full tweet and you’ll see that it contains some raised-fist emojis — at a moment that part of her own city has been declared off limits to police by “armed paramilitaries.” What?

emphasis (but not BOLD in origination)

Actually it says a lot about both the Governor and the Mayor. They “goofed” on him because to do otherwise brings more attention to their productions of #cluelessinseattle than the President already has.

The reality is thanks to his Tweets Trump can’t lose here. If Durkan or Inslee take action, he can say it was his due to him prompting, but if they don’t every day Mayor Durkan and Governor Inslee play #CluelessInSeattle is a win for Trump and a loss for the Democrats, a loss that the can emphasize in a single tweet at any time without warning to emphasize any individual act of outrage by the “autonomous community” or cowardice or indecision by the Mayor & Governor. (In fact I was was POTUS i’d use the hashtag #cluelessinseattle while doing so.

He can let this simmer for weeks while assigning a General to plan on how to retake the area giving time for a detailed plan to be developed and the forces and resources needed to carry it out can slowly and quietly be marshaled while state officials ditther.

But there is no need to hurry. After all the people of Seattle freely chose Mayor Durkan and the people of Washington freely chose Governor Inslee and I suspect President Trump will wait until all the plans are made and everything is ready to move at a moment’s notice, so that when he decides “enough is enough” he will be able to strike, quickly and decisively.

Until then with no more than an occasional tweet he’ll let the people of Washington State in General and Seattle in Particular enjoy the production of #CluelessinSeattle getting as all voters in a republic do, the results of the government they deserve, good and hard!

These riots are the end result of progressive indoctrination

The death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer was an appalling crime, one worthy of outrage from everyone.  The despicable nature of the crime more than justified widespread protest across the United Sates. 

Unfortunately the protests turned into the wide scale rioting and destruction because far too many college students and young adults have been brainwashed into believing that violence is an acceptable form of protest.  This is something that they are being taught on college campuses.  Had they been taught civics and the original meaning of the Constitution they would know that peaceful protesting is the only valid form of protesting.  Here is the exact text of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The right to protest is a combination of the rights of free speech, assemble, and petition.  The amendment clearly states that the right to assemble must be done peaceably.  Rioting, looting, throwing rocks, and other forms of violence are not peaceable therefore they are not valid forms of protest.

For decades college students, and recently high school students, are being taught that the United States is now, and has always been, an inherently racist nation.  They are receiving a highly edited history of this nation with only the worst components of our history blown way out of proportion.  That has led to tremendous and unjustified anger, especially in the minority communities.

ANTIFA is a common entity on college campuses whose members are very often recruited and taught on college campuses. They are being taught that the use of violence is an acceptable form of expression especially against people who have different beliefs. Check out this Breitbart article

A new poll has revealed that young and college-educated Americans are more likely to support the recent riots that have taken place in major cities around the nation. 58 percent of respondents with a four-year degree agreed that riots are “fully or partially justified,” including such acts as burning a police station down.

Progressive indoctrination has also misled whole generations into believing that capitalism is an unjust system that exploits everyone especially minorities.  That has led to the belief that looting is an acceptable remedy for this injustice.

Restoring our educational system is the best way prevents these riots from happening again.  We must teach again concepts such as liberty, and the original understanding of the Constitution, and the true virtues of capitalism.

The Media/Left Goal for these Riots: A Dead Useful Idiot

Let me bluntly state what the goal for the Democrat/Media/left here is.

A dead “protester” (preferably of color) shot by a supporter of the president (preferably white) .

It won’t matter if said “protester” was looting, it won’t matter if they were throwing bricks or Molotov cocktails or even armed and threatening said Trump supporter, his business or his family.

One they have their dead protester they will label Trump supporters as killers throughout the media, just as they have blamed all police for the incident in Minnesota (while oddly INSISTING that all protesters not be blamed for riots, arson etc committed by some).

Furthermore the longer this goes on the greater the need for said dead protester as people generally don’t like having to worry about mobs torching & looting business, neighborhoods and have a dim view of pols who a week ago were willing to arrest people who went to beaches or cut hair but are not willing to speak up for fear that it might cost them votes from their base.

At that point they will need to change the subject, and the best way to change the subject is a body. After all this certainly changed the subject from the successful reopening of Florida, Texas & Georgia and the revelations concerning the Flynn investigations.

All they need is a body oh useful idiot, beware as they will be happy to have yours.

You have been warned

Heathens aplenty right here

I’m having one of those moments again. So I’ll do what I always do: point you to something interesting.

Man tries to save the souls of carcass-worshipers.

In a recent Facebook post, musician and investigative writer Daryl Davis described how he’s been treated by others and members of his own race [he’s black], from being called a “sellout” to every imaginable racial slur. Until this week….

Davis was part of a panel in Philadelphia aimed at reducing hatred and violence in the country. This included both right and left wing people who he states were successfully getting along. However, he says that Antifa members upset about the conference refused to join the party, accusing him of being a “white supremacist!”

Davis has been the subject of the documentary Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America and a Ted Talk about his adventures. He’s traveled to over 50 countries and played music in 49 states as a professional blues musician.

For decades, he’s interacted with and interviewed people with opposing viewpoints. He has even convinced a couple hundred KKK members to disjoin. He’s interviewed members of all different hate and extremist groups, both black and white. His most famous story was about his relationship with Klan leaders and was the subject of his book, Klan-destine Relationships.

Read the whole thing and watch the videos.

And know this: there’s an element in these United States that has a vested interest in keep Americans of different races at each other’s throats. Those who hate this man for reaching out to his perceived enemies feed on anger, hatred and fear. They are addicted to it; if they could shoot it into their veins, they would.

Mr. Davis is a hero.

Quick Thoughts Under the Fedora, Quarterbacks, Portland Antifa, Yes Minister, Stacy Women and Math is hard for Greta

If you are a Patriot’s fan you probably like what you see after two games in the new rookie quarterback Jarrett Stidham so far after two games. I predict that if he continues to do well we are going to hear the same nonsense about trading Tom Brady as we did in the past about Jimmy G. Let me remind everyone of two things:

  1. These games don’t count.
  2. The Patriots QB job is Brady’s as long as he wants and can do it.

Nothing else matters.


Every time I see Antifa beating up people in Portland and the police sitting back and letting them do it I’m reminded of three things.

  1. The people thereof voted for the government that is letting them do it.
  2. There are a lot of liberals nationwide, particularly in my opinion journalists who would like to beat their political opponents in the same way.
  3. I’m damn lucky I didn’t move to Portland when I had the chance 30 years ago.

As John Wayne’s Rooster Cogburn said in the original True Grit “You can’t serve papers on a rat,baby sister, you have to kill them or let them be. ”  It’s the same with Antifa, you have to go in with force to arrest them and defeat them or let them rule the streets.  Portland has chosen the latter.  Although in fairness it’s still my opinion that the left wants one or more of these Antifa guys to get shot and killed to try and Kent State Trump.


The most amazing thing about the television series Yes Minister / yes Prime Minister is how timeless they are. When you watch episodes of them you realize that the very same debates on the very same subjects with the very same dynamics are still going on both in England the United States. Most importantly the division in the show isn’t by party it’s the pols vs the bureaucrats which has always been the division in government.


I was Reading Stacy McCain’s latest who even when he’s listening to the radio on a drive with his wife can’t escape crazy feminists:

 She is a clichéd stereotype of the neurotic liberal woman: “In all honesty, I never even imagined myself becoming a mother. My teen years and early 20s were spent just trying to get my act together. I had an anxiety disorder, depression and was married and divorced from my first husband by the time I was 23 years old.” Her sex life? Also a cliché: “Before I met my husband, I dated a bunch of not-nice guys. I peppered in a few nice guys here and there, but I think I was so insecure and unhappy at that time that I either drove those good guys away or grew bored of their niceness.” 

While I’m always happy to hear about these people added to the list of who I refer to as “Stacy’s Women” as I have a standing prayer intention for them, I’ve noticed that invariably these people have mental illness, admit they have mental illness, yet the left is rushing to embrace the ideas of such people as a model for their lives.

It’s a good thing the left doesn’t hire mechanics to fix their brakes using this standard or there would be bodies all over the highway.


Finally this story demonstrates why it’s a bad idea to leave decisions on how to run your government or business to children:

Climate activist Greta Thunberg causes more greenhouse gas emissions from her sailing trip from the United Kingdom to the United States than if she had flown. About five employees would sail the yacht back to Europe, said Andreas Kling, spokesman for Thunberg skipper Boris Herrmann, on Thursday the taz.
“Of course, they fly over there, that’s no different,” says Kling. Herrmann will also take the plane for the return journey. The sailing trip triggers at least six climate-damaging air travel across the Atlantic. If Thunberg had flown with her father, only two would have been necessary to come to New York.

I know that math is hard but I would have thought young Miss Thunberg could figure out that 6  > 2 .  Moreover if she really cared about her “carbon footprint” why didn’t she just attend the conference via Skype without leaving her house.

Can you imagine what’s going to happen once she hits 21 and the novelty of being the child prophet of climate change is gone?  Let’s hope that in 12 years I’m not reading about her on Stacy’s blog talking about her problems adjusting.
