    Just fantastic!

  • ghostsniper November 19, 2021, 10:52 AM

    let the party begin

    • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:48 AM

      Sadly, the savages will be out looting and burning tonight.
      I hope that business and property owners will stand firm against them….like the ROOF TOP KOREANS, and like Kyle did.

  • Lance de Boyle November 19, 2021, 10:56 AM

    That Rittenhouse kid is a racist. Didn’t shoot a single person of color.

  • Yaacov ben Moshe November 19, 2021, 11:04 AM

    What a symbolic day. Old Joe Biden is having a colonoscopy at the same time that BLM/ SJW/ Minor Attracted People/ and all the other wokeists are getting a good judicial reaming. This is what I call a Hallmark Moments. There will be riots, keep your sidearms on you.

    • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:37 AM

      I prayed for that boy every day for weeks now.
      That it took 4 days of deliberations to get there is amazing.
      Now young Kyle needs to file lawsuits against CNN and the rest of the liars, sue FJB, sue Gaige Groskrieutz, sue the DA, and many others.
      His defense did not come for free. I am guessing upwards of a $quarter million$ in legal fees.

      And your observation re; symbolism is rich and apropos. It brought a smile to my face!

      • John Venlet November 19, 2021, 1:24 PM

        I prayed for that boy every day for weeks now.

        Don’t stop now, Kevin. Young Mr. Rittenhouse is going to need them now more than ever, me thinks. Notoriety does not always work in ones favor. Pray also, and fervently, that men of faith will begin to step up and defend America and American ideals with having to resort to bloodshed. I think that is why believers are admonished to pray for those who persecute you (us). It is not easy to pray this prayer. I try.

        • Brian_E November 19, 2021, 6:21 PM


          I’ve been praying for young Mr. Rittenhouse, his legal team, and the court for many months now. And it’s not over until the dust settles and he can settle back into a quiet life of anonymity, and/or can successfully parlay his newfound fame into something bigger and better – for himself and others. But truthfully, this is but one small step in a long journey, a small victory in a never ending war of good vs. evil – even when it’s only couched in terms of fighting back the forces that would try to take our freedoms away from us.

          To that end, I submit the following prayer for our nation, which I offer up daily. I cannot claim credit for composing it, but I do wholeheartedly recommend it. Please share, as you see fit. THIS is something worth of going ‘viral’:

          Heavenly Father, out country needs You.
          We have turned away from You and evil
          forces are pervading our land. Pour Your
          Holy Spirit on us. Open our eyes and ears to
          the evil around us. Raise up leaders who
          love and follow You. Give us courage to
          speak up so that we can once again live as
          one nation under God. Unite us. Protect us.
          Forgive us. We ask all this in Jesus’ name.

          • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 6:37 PM

            Thanks, Brian.
            And, John, you are correct -“now more than ever.”

  • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 11:05 AM

    Biden called Kyle a “white supremist”. The entire media apparatus was arrayed against him, filling the air with mendacity and fake news. Night after night the rabid, spittle-flecked pundits of the Democrat Party spat out their hatred for the young man. Big Tech marshalled its forces to toss Kyle in prison for life. The jury and the judge suffered though intimidation and threats, one assistant district attorney even pointing an unloaded AR-15 with his finger on the trigger at the jury. BLM and Antifa skulked in the shadows, ready to explode. Almost the entire Republican Party uttered nary a peep in Kyle’s defense, content to cower under their desks. Every mechanism of judicial and social power power controlled by the US Government and its myrmidons came out against him.

    And Kyle won. He defeated them all. One man—actually still a teenager. Against all odds.

    Tell me again how America is finished. Without hope. Gone forever.

    If you cannot be like Kyle, then of what use are you? Find another country to complain about—and go live there.

    • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:32 AM

      “Tell me again how America is finished. Without hope. Gone forever.”

      This nation is not dead. There is a God and he loves Kyle.

  • David Smith November 19, 2021, 11:27 AM

    Lester Holt and NBC managed their mid day coverage of the event to make a racial spin on it. Fox no mention of race.

    A watershed verdict.

    • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:30 AM

      Why would you listen to, or even care what NBC-ABC-CBS-CNN-PBS, et.al. have to say about this, or anything else? They are liars!

  • Ootenvault November 19, 2021, 11:27 AM

    “Tell me again how America is finished. Without hope. Gone forever.”

    Thank you for that Mike Austin…

  • Dave November 19, 2021, 11:34 AM

    Now, how about filing brandishing and reckless endangerment charges against BingBong?

  • PA Cat November 19, 2021, 11:42 AM

    From the Babylon Bee: “Rioters Flee In Terror As Kyle Rittenhouse Emerges From Courthouse With AR-15”: “‘The jig is up! Scatter!’ cried the terrified commie waifs as they skittered toward shadowy alleyways like cockroaches. ‘The Rittenhouse has returned! Judgment is upon us! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!’ Rittenhouse then appeared to descend the courthouse steps in slow motion, surrounded by a flock of doves and a heavenly golden light. At the terrifying sight, hundreds of Antifa fairies and murderous pedophiles shrieked in terror like a den of goblins, crawling into various holes and cracks in the earth. . . . Sources say that once Rittenhouse has completed his task of purging the land of evil and wickedness, he will return home to his mother, who confirmed he is grounded for a week.”


    • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:45 AM

      It is through mockery that we may defeat these evil people.

    • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 11:49 AM

      The Babylon Bee is now America’s newspaper of note.

  • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 11:43 AM

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but Casey, To your comment recently posted here @ AD, I do not agree that Evan Hafer and his pals @BRCC would be in the same foxhole as me, or any other American willing to fight for liberty.
    They are in it for the money and waving the flag is how they dupe folks. Open your eyes.
    Go read;

    • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 11:50 AM

      Evan Hafer would fight for Israel. He would never fight for you.

    • Casey Klahn November 19, 2021, 1:41 PM

      I do not expect all of my allies to be correct all of the time. Hafer may have fukt up; I think your mind is made up.

      But, when the trenches are dug, and patriots occupy them, you will look to one side and see Hell’s Angels and ex-cons, and to the other side you’ll see mothers against drunk drivers, democrats who’ve seen the light, the queer rights brigade, Mormon, flying gargoyles, great apes, mounted orcs on rhinoceroses; you name it; your cohort will be strange and unusual. Don’t comb their fine hairs too closely.

      • Vanderleun November 19, 2021, 3:35 PM

        I’m with Casey here. Too much perfection is a mistake.

        • Kevin in PA November 19, 2021, 6:50 PM

          Fair enough. I respectfully defer to your (both Gerard and Casey) age and wisdom.

          It is still a great day in America. Let’s count this as a win.

          But never forget what was done to this kid…..all of it. From the street thugs that attacked him to the malicious lies told by media, to the prosecutors, to the current occupant of the White House calling him a “white supremacist”, to the low-lifes that tried to intimidate the jury.

      • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 3:41 PM

        Dear Casey:

        It is not a case of Hafer “fucking up”. That measure could be applied to any teenager. It is a case of Hafer insulting all of those who supported Kyle and spitting in their face. He showed us what he really is.

        If Hafer were to jump into my trench, he would not like the result. I recognize an enemy when I see one. He is my enemy because his behavior made him so.

        Of course my mind is made up. Once decided, a man’s mind is resolved. Why would a man consider, then reconsider, then reconsider again? Such indecision is a mark of cowardice, of failure, of surrender.

        I am not combing hairs too closely. I am weeding out the sheep from the goats. It is not a case of accepting anyone who claims to be on our side. It is a case of having the wisdom to tell who is and who is not. Hell’s Angels are a bit hard core, but I’d rather have them with me than against me. Hafer’s loyalties have been duly noted. He is an enemy.

        I neither need nor want one such as Hafer on our side. Victory is never a case of numbers, it is a case of will. Give me the 300 of Gideon, rather than 3000 of Hafers.

        • Vanderleun November 20, 2021, 4:30 PM

          Went back and looked at the whole Black Rifle Coffee incident and I’ve changed my mind and have to denounce Hafer and the company.

  • Auntie Analogue November 19, 2021, 11:54 AM

    If I could speak to Kyle Rittenhouse I’d say to him what John Wayne said: “You did good, Pilgrim.”

    • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 12:02 PM

      When the prosecution made its closing remarks, I could almost hear Wayne mutter, “That’ll be the day!”

    May the Kenosha Hat Trick live forever in our lexicon!

    • Vanderleun November 19, 2021, 3:36 PM

      My next bumper strip will say, “Beware the Kenosha Hat Trick.”

  • Casey Klahn November 19, 2021, 1:45 PM

    It’s obvious that KR had the Hand of God on him at the riot, and in the courthouse. Everything was stacked against him, but we just witnessed a miracle. That’s why he broke down at the reading – you cannot be touched by God and just stand there.

    OTOH, Kenosha hasn’t got God’s Hand upon it. It has the governor of Wisconsin, instead. Shit about to get real.

  • SLM November 19, 2021, 2:00 PM

    So what do we do when the feds indict him for civil rights violations?

    • Vanderleun November 19, 2021, 3:37 PM

      Target the Feds.

      • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 4:09 PM

        “The Feds” encompass an entire alphabet soup of the enemies of Liberty. The FBI, ATF, DOJ, CIA, NSA, DHS, DEA: All of whom hate our guts. I’m not yet sure how to deal with such vermin, except that I know—and they certainly know—that we outnumber them 10,000 to one. I’ll take those odds. They can easily sneak up to the unsuspecting, like Project Veritas—but only once. After which their enforcers must deal with Solzhenitsyn’s question:

        “What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?”

        Imagine being that guy who understands the risks. Imagine him knowing that he must be away from his home and family. Imagine the effect upon his resolve. Now imagine him—and many others—calling in sick for a week or so.

  • Dirk November 19, 2021, 2:14 PM

    It’s over, the jury got it right, put it to bed, move off the X. There is zero time to gloat. Round two is about here.


    • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 4:32 PM

      We are not gloating—well, not overly so—we are having our victory dance. After which will come the next battle. And the next. It will never until Christ returns. The our victory dance will go on forever.

      • Dirk November 19, 2021, 8:42 PM

        Brother, actually you can gloat all you want! I’m fine with it. Justice was served, and the Constitution upheld.

        many disagree, but I still see that silly founding document,, the Constitution, as what keeps setting the left on their heads.

        This Judge was outstanding, bent over backwards to prevent any opportunities for a miss trial. End of the day, this is what the justice systems supposed to work and look like.

        Will be interesting to see just exactly how Antifa,,,,BLM, change up there tactics after this verdict.
        This is the dog whistle, screaming, the counter protester actually can defend themselves. I really doubt this will be the last self defense case in the coming follies.

        Can’t help but think what a man or woman with a suppressed rifle perhaps 1000y off in the night just might accomplish.

        1000 Dorners!

        • Mike Austin November 19, 2021, 10:21 PM

  • brinster November 19, 2021, 2:22 PM

    It’s clear these dregs haven’t kept up with the trial, having gotten their news from the MSM. They’re still saying he illegally carried a scary assault weapon from Illinois into Wisconsin. Nope. He’s a vigilante! If he were a vigilante, he had a target-rich environment, and if he chose, could have ended the lives of more that two humans. And don’t forget “white supremacist.”
    And if y’all frequent Locals, RikietaLaw has kept up with the trial since jury selection and have done outstanding work analyzing the proceedings. VERY impressive bunch of lawyers and laymen have frequented there during the trial.
    And finally, this signifies the early death knells of the legacy media. Long time comin’.

  • Karen November 19, 2021, 10:59 PM

    I offer up a hallelujah and amen for his parents as well.

  • John the River November 20, 2021, 5:57 AM

    Kyle has passed through the fire and emerged on the other side, different. Stronger perhaps, prematurely mature probably, and with his name recognition ‘Off the chart’. That last bit can either be a curse or a blessing. Would seem that little else is in front of him except the public life. I hope he chooses well.
    I was thinking about Zimmerman. His post-apocalyptic life has been rocky, I’m sure that he wakes up most mornings wishing it had all been a dream, a nightmare of a dream. Similarly, his nightmare was scripted by many of the same demon-scribes employed by the Devils of American Media.
    I don’t think the First Amendment was written with todays monopolistic, single-party media in mind.
    I saw a clip from before this all started, some venomous mouth on CNN was ranting on the shooting death of Jacob Blake by police officers. The police were the initial target if you remember. And I had to check but; No, Jacob Blake was still alive. Mending nicely too. Careless? Or calculated?

    Lies are their main weapon, that has been shown time and time again.
    Our greatest shield is the truth. Thank God.

    • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 8:03 AM

  • Casey Klahn November 20, 2021, 7:53 AM

    It would be good to turn the narrative around to: democrats rioted all across America in 2020 and drove a wedge into the population, essentially beginning CWII.

    The whole story is dizzying. Imagine trying to summarize this irredeemable shitshow to your college students 50 years hence, or to your great-grandchildren.

    DC got unmanageable by the people, and this was called the Deep State. It began to take on aspects of Mao’s China, Lenin’s Soviet Union, Marxism, and Fascism, but also to become a political entity in itself, characterized by intensive, unelected bureaucracy and criminal politicians.

    Trump was elected as a turn-around CEO, kicked ass and took names, and generally got the economy roaring and almost every war lowered below the boiling point: he never got the US involved in any new wars, and refused to escalate conflicts that he inherited. He turned the border crisis around and threatened the Deep State with his policies and successes.

    The Deep State, along with a corrupt media, went full-time to oppose Trump, to the extent that they manufactured a health crisis out of a virus that came from China shrouded in mystery. Although it was serious to have China Flu, the reaction to the flu was so over the top that governments from mayors and governors, and bureaucracies such as the CDC, the medical community, and large businesses, all colluded to lock-down society. People weren’t allowed to work and travel was restricted, and yet the numbers of sick and dead were not dramatically high, and the CDC and the medical community lied and fudged the numbers to include those who died of other causes but may’ve had Covid as well.

    The death of reliable news created panic among the citizenry, and to the point where people couldn’t trust the government or govt. agencies. Distrust for the FBI, the CDC, and Congress was sky high, and in the midst of the epidemic lockdowns, the democrat party began sending armed militias into the streets to foment race riots. All of this happened in order to cover for the theft of the 2020 presidential election and to prevent Trump from being reelected.

    Worries about personal safety and Constitutional rights and privileges were exacerbated by media and political gas-lighting of the people. People began to believe that they were entering into a time of a new Civil War.

    In an unusual, and yet easily recognizable pattern of corruption, presidential election-theft, the very popular Donald Trump was unseated and a corrupt and inept old and established politician was put in office using a mixture of established election fraud and a new, computerized form of theft in which vote numbers were switched, en masse, to show a win for Joe Biden, who essentially did not even campaign, using the excuse of the epidemic and of his frailty.

    In a dramatic and frightening move, the political and bureaucratic occupants of Washington DC fortified and occupied the national capitol using a large force of national guardsmen to seal off a “green zone” from imaginary rioters. In the chaotic time between the vote and the inauguration of the fake president, the FBI coordinated a pretend riot and a politically theatric occupation of the capitol during the counting of electoral college votes in which 5 or 5 key state’s votes were accepted although they had been, following the same pattern, switched from Trump to Biden in the dead of night.

    This had all the marks of a Color revolution, which is a type of intelligence service (CIA or NKVD or Stasi) operation that generates unrest and political violence to overthrow a government.

    These times also resembled closely the cultural and October revolutions that brought the Russian and Chinese communist take-overs.

    In America, and also much of the world, similar events happened that had happened under 20th Century totalitarian states; shipping was mysteriously stopped at West Coast ports, and also at ports around the world, energy was involved in artificial crises that created high prices and shortages, schools were a bizarre place for Soviet-style indoctrination and if parents tried to interfere with the state’s plans, they were crushed by state threats and investigatory abuse.

    The economy went from being robust under Trump, to crisis mode almost overnight. Food and fuel shortages, false lockdowns for invented health reasons, overbearing vaccine mandates, a politically motivated emptying-out of the otherwise apolitical military based on political witch-hunts and vaccine mandates all swept through the country like a maelstrom.

    The only thing creating friction or resistance to the absolute tyrannical overthrow by Marxist and Fascist-style politicians, big technology and a corrupt media, and an unelected bureaucracy, was the unusual constitution of the United States, and the empowered citizenry of the US. Although their constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of conscience and religion, freedom of the press, freedom from unusual legal overreach, and most importantly the freedom to own and use firearms, were under heavy attack, these rights were enshrined as law and the people made use of them as best they could.

    In particular, the people were an army unto themselves, and so well-armed that the corrupt totalitarians feared them, and held memories of how the patriots who beat the most powerful nations on Earth in wars including the Revolutionary War, and the two World Wars, and also who fought a bloody civil war, fought like hell-unleashed and would not tolerate a loss of their liberties.

    This was the lead-up to Civil War II…

    • Casey Klahn November 20, 2021, 7:57 AM

      5 or 6 key states. Arizona and Nevada were both in question, and possibly the number of corrupted states was much higher, although the pattern of shutting down counts was in the 5 states, iirc.

    John, more than a few are saying Blake was killed by the “racist” police, including the chair of the DCCC as best I remember. They’re also saying he was unarmed. Well, not too much lying, right. And even if it is a lie, it has its desired effect.

  • Anne November 20, 2021, 9:04 AM

    Here is your new anti American slang. The phrase the Chinese communists have taught our democrats to use anytime the issue of self defense comes up, or any other issue of freedom. Your new phrase to be used to put down anyone that believes in the Constitution is this;
    “self rights activist” or maybe just “self rights fanatic”. How about “self rights lunatic”?
    Watch for it–it’s here now and coming quickly into the lexicon of the MSM

  • azlibertarian November 20, 2021, 9:58 AM

    I’m a thousand miles from Rittenhouse and am unlikely to meet him in a hundred lifetimes. That said, I look at his acquittal on charges that never should have been brought as though I might be seeing my own son go through something similar. His acquittal was a profound relief. That kid was always as innocent as a dove of these charges. Rittenhouse is a unicorn….the one truly innocent defendant in a court system where practically everyone else is guilty of something, if not the charges brought against them.

    And in the irony of ironies, the stone cold hard fact that Rittenhouse’s prosecutors/persecutors (choose your noun) engaged in multiple offenses against him (insulting his 5th Amendment rights, lying about not knowing the identity of “Jump Kick Man”, accepting a video from an anonymous source [AYFKM?] and then violating Rittenhouse’s Brady rights by only providing a compressed copy of it to his defense team, among other errors) illustrates the need for the Court Reform that the BLM/Antifa low-lifes cry about. If the Left were smart (as they clearly are not), they’d use Rittenhouse as their mascot.

  • Humdeedee November 20, 2021, 1:25 PM

    I am so thankful for the Not Guilty verdict I can’t even describe the feelings of euphoria and gratitude I experienced as each one of the 6 Not Guilty verdicts were read. Kyle, through out, from the start of the attacks against him during the riots to the attacks against him in the courtroom exhibited uncanny calm and aplomb, not to mention skill in handling a gun so that only his attackers, seeking to take his life, were the ones who suffered the business end of that AR-15. A mere boy by today’s standards showing such courage, strength and fortitude should be esteemed as an example for all young men. I hope and pray for his protection during the coming years, while he exacts just rewards against his persecutors, legally and within the law. I hope all of them are sued into oblivion, some of them jailed and all of them ruined by their evil, un-American, Satan inspired behavior.

    The two times that Kyle broke down during his trial – the first when describing the crux of the event that happened during the night of the riots and the second when he realized justice was his – were genuine and true. I pray for his safety and that of his family and I hope he can survive the notoriety that he will bear in the years to come. Thank God, indeed! For Kyle and for the courageous jurors who came to the only decision they could honestly make. And thank you, Casey, for your succinct telling of this historical event.
