Riding on the Tweeter/Twatter

WEBSTER, MA – Urged by the crowd’s chanting, Police Chief Michael Shaw joins in laying on the ground for 8 minutes while screams of ‘mama’ and ’I can’t breathe,” the last words of George Floyd, are yelled out during a Black Lives Matter protest on Saturday, June 6, 2020. [T&G Staff/Ashley Green]
Three Arrested For Setting Police Cars On Fire


UPDATE: Oh foo… the above tweet leads to an embarrasment for the Mayor’s “issue.” Must have been very painful and so the image had to be suppressed. No worries! I kept a copy and am posting it at the end of this item so you still HAVE TIME NOT TO LOOK

    No human society beyond a small number can exist without cops.

    If you abolish cops in America at sunrise you’ll have to recreate them before the Sun sets.

    Most cops are pretty good.

    Bad apples set a horrendous climate, I know.

    And given the esprit the corps, they suffer the same limitations for self cleansing that medical personnel suffer: the bad apples are tolerated because of the “what if it happens to me?” . . . or . . . “what WHEN it happens to me?” given the nature of their trade.

    And the militarization of the police sets a very bad tone and shouldn’t have happened.

    And we may have to solve our LE problems.

    But this entire anti-cop climate has little to do with cops and very much with leftoxenomorph insurrection.

    Leftoxenomorphs are getting away with the murder of our society.

    Decent folks and decent cops are on the same side.

    That dude should be fired.

    The leftoxenomorphs should be stepped on as if they had found themselves in front of Godzilla.

    Any normal and healthy society would be burying a few thousand leftoxenomorphs by now.

    But we are not normal any longer.

    We are a dying wimpoid society worn down by decades of leftoxenomorph indoctrination.

    Basically . . . they have won or are very close to winning.

    Will there be another Trump after the current one?

    Or another hussein soros-etoro this time of the female persuasion?

    It’s not just about defunding the police. Rather, funding the thought police.
    Nor is it enough for the left to be free of oppression. Rather, they won’t rest until they are the oppressors.

    Yes, Thomas, cussing just don’t cut it after more than a week of this nonsense.

    I am just sitting and watching in disgust at the cowardice of the “ruling class”.

    These clueless wimps have clearly no understanding of history. For if those they attempt to appease achieve their desired “proletariat revolution”, they will be the first to be offed when their real goons take control.

    Almost overnight, city, county, and state governments stripped away rights guaranteed by the constitution, forced people into wearing those humiliating masks, destroyed the livelihood of millions, and made it a crime to walk on the beach, or let kids play on a swing set.
    No big deal. The nation complied without a whimper.
    Recall a couple weeks ago I posted about riding bikes through a “major protest” over all this consisting of hundreds of people in downtown Huntington beach.
    But the masses who rolled over for all that without a peep, suddenly are whipped into nation wide riots for two weeks over a lowlife criminal who died in police custody. And just as fast as the public rolled over for the virus hoax, they erupt in total fury over “Systemic racism”, and engage in nation wide looting, and destruction, because…
    It doesn’t add up. It doesn’t make sense.
    I cannot wrap my mind around this level of insanity.
    A nation this sick isn’t going to live long.
    Or maybe it’s already dead, and we just didn’t realize it.
    Where’s the goddamn meteor?

    3 years ago I got on a plane, I think it was in Denver, and had had a long layover and a glass of bourbon. I noticed Our distinguished ex-speaker, GOP, getting on the plane with us. When I passed his FC seat, I shook his hand as I have in the past to greet him, and I leaned down because of the noise and made sure to say: “Please support our president (Trump); we LOVE him.”

    I must’ve seemed like a douche, with bourbon breath and my message of hate.

    Now I wonder why I didn’t start the counter to the counter revolution right then and there. Fukking retard Republicans. They don’t represent Americans and they fukking know it’s so.

    I had an inkling that maybe the stand down of the regular army in the capitol was because the riots had started to subside. Thankfully, the LEO and the NG turned the tide this weekend. Esper’s still a dick, but maybe not for this last couple of days’ actions.

    Police reform? Can’t say I support their stupid cuckold activities like kneeling at riots. But the dem idea of reform is eliminate. What could possibly go wrong now?

    F’king cotton!

    “You just HAD to have cool shirts, huh?! Had to have fancy sheets and table cloths, did you? Well, in OUR day, we wore Beech bark underwear. Sure it caused massive rashes and infertility, but we were tough. Cotton bedding!? Ha on that! We slept on sticks and pine cones. Sure we got blood poisoning. But did we complain? Heck no! We were made of sterner stuff. The Germans among us were made of Schterner Schtuff. You Colonial pussies!”


    barbarian invasions (ours are morlock insurrections)
    Encyclopedia Britannica. https://www.britannica.com/place/ancient-Rome/The-barbarian-invasions

    The reentrant triangle of land between the upper Danube and upper Rhine had to be permanently abandoned to the barbarians around it in about 260. [IN OTHER WORDS, LET THEM HAVE THE ROTTING BIG CITIES.] The Pax Romana had then, in all these manifest ways, been seriously disrupted. On the other hand, in Egypt, where inflation is most amply documented, its harmful effects cannot be detected. The Egyptian economy showed no signs of collapse. Furthermore, some regions—most of Britain, for example—emerged from the half-century of crisis in a more prosperous condition than before. A summary of the effects of crisis can only underline one single fact that is almost self-evident: the wonders of civilization attained under the Antonines required an essentially political base. They required a strong, stable monarchy in command of a strong army. If either or both were seriously disturbed, the economy would suffer, along with the civilization’s ease and brilliance. If, on the other hand, the political base could be restored, the health of the empire as a whole was not beyond recovery.


    After Claudius II’s unexpected death, the empire was ruled from 270 to 284 by several “Illyrian” emperors, who were good generals and who tried in an energetic way to restore equilibrium. The most remarkable was Aurelian. He first gained hard-won victories over the Alemanni and the Juthungi, who had invaded the Alpine provinces and northern Italy. To cheer the inhabitants of Rome, who had succumbed to panic, he began construction of the famous rampart known as Aurelian’s Wall. And while crossing the Danubian provinces, before marching against Palmyra, he decided on an orderly evacuation of Dacia, an undefendable region that had been occupied by the barbarians since the time of Gallienus. In the East, he defeated Zenobia’s troops easily and occupied Palmyra in 272. Shortly afterward, an uprising broke out in Egypt under the instigation of a rich merchant, who, like a great part of the population, was a partisan of the Palmyrene queen. In response, Aurelian undertook a second campaign, plundering Palmyra and subjugating Alexandria. [IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN DETROIT, NYC, ETC., CUT UP ROUGH, HANG THE MAYORS.] These troubles, however, along with the devastation of the great caravan city, were to set back Roman trade seriously in the East. Later, rounding back on the Gallic empire of Postumus’ successors, he easily defeated Tetricus, a peaceful man not very willing to fight, near Cabillonum.

    The unity of the empire was restored, and Aurelian celebrated a splendid triumph in Rome. He also reestablished discipline in the state, sternly quelled a riot of artisans in the mints of Rome, organized the provisioning of the city by militarizing several corporations (the bakers, the pork merchants), and tried to stop the inflation by minting an antoninianus of sounder value. His religious policy was original: in order to strengthen the moral unity of the empire and his own power, he declared himself to be the protégé of the Sol Invictus (the Invincible Sun) and built a magnificent temple for this god with the Palmyrene spoils. Aurelian was also sometimes officially called dominus et deus: the principate had definitely been succeeded by the “dominate.” In 275 Aurelian was murdered by certain officers who mistakenly believed that their lives were in danger. [SHOULD HAVE OFFED THEM EARLIER, BY TREBUCHET.]

    [In other words, he kicked ass, abandoned the rotten and enemy cities and provinces, restored what was left, rebuilt the economy, restored Roman pride, took no shit.]

    Gerard is a lot better off than James Bennet’s former employer– on the one hand he gets Woke Cred for having hired an Editor of Color. OTOH, as Miss Olive lacks opposable thumbs (for now), he doesn’t have to worry about her setting the litter box on fire, turning the kitchen into a food desert, going online to start a Defund Animal Control movement, or paw-printing “Black Cats Matter” on Chico’s Main Street.

    Casey sed: “What could possibly go wrong now?”
    I say, let em rot. Let the amcom’s do everything that want, get out of their way.
    I also say sane people should distance themselves from the amcom’s as they are buying a one way ticket straight to hell and will take as many as they can with them. Remus Rule: “Avoid Crowds”. Ghost Rule: “Avoid everyone cause in this day and age no one can be trusted.”

    As John noted above, “I cannot wrap my mind around this level of insanity.”
    I say, “Don’t even try to figure it out. Just get the fuk away from it. Or kill it in place”

    Notice the majority of the insanity participants. Born in the last 30 years, since the beginning of the Klintin Reign of Terror. They were raised by uncaring parents that turned them over to the public indoctrination system and the communist run colleges. Their brains have been destroyed. It’s doubtful they can be fixed. The best that can be done is to just eradicate them and their enablers.

    “The World is trying the experiment of attempting to form a civilized with non-Christian mentality. The experiment will fail; but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time: so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization, and save the World from suicide” (T. S. Eliot, Lambeth Conference 1930).

  • Annie Rose June 8, 2020, 6:55 AM

    The past two weeks I have received multiple emails from businesses and groups that I frequent or belong to, all beating their chests and rending their shirts in an effort to show how woke they are in supporting the rioters and looters. I have ignored and deleted all of them. But then my state professional organization had to send a second email not two days after the first that was even more ridiculous, including the announcement of forming yet another additional committee to study our profession’s failures on race, along with links to donate money to these terrorist groups.

    I lost it.

    My profession? Speech pathologists and audiologists. We are a HELPING profession. We work with people with life-changing challenges, such as strokes and autism. We wouldn’t have gone into our profession if we didn’t deeply care about people of all kinds and were eager to advocate for their rights. My national and state organizations were woke before anyone ever knew what woke was.

    We are the wokiest of the wokes. We are trained from the beginning to never react to differences or refuse to work with people from a race, religion, income level, culture, sexuality, or solar system different than our own. In fact, we can lose our certification and licensure if we refuse to do so. This is ingrained in us to be fair, respectful, and just to all people and species-identifying others. But now we will have our dues spent on one more worthless feel-good measure so we can be lectured and finger wagged about how we should feel bad that those of us who have white skin have achieved a measure of success in our lives.

    In a series of emails with the executive director, it came out that he had been schooled in his recent wokeness and knee jerk reaction by—a young black student who hasn’t even finished her degrees and has zero knowledge of the over 50 years of my professions outreach into communities of color. Yes. A grown man was terrified into revising his original email by a student lest he be labeled a racist. All she had to do was to tell him that his efforts were puny and indicative of his white privilege. He then lectured me that my letter was the only one they had received criticizing them as if my voice doesn’t matter. It is past time that we all start pushing back against this is insanity. I will start by defunding such beasts when it is time to pay my annual professional dues.

    Greetings and a full and informative post and comments.

    I was interested in this potential threat to rural America, and the news media all say that these are just unsubstantiated rumors. Which means the opposite is probably true. These same media who say the riots are non-violent, and you don’t need a gun.

    What is coming? Revolution. Some people will fight.


    What is not pictured in these photos (above link) is many, very serious people that will not allow themselves to be in any camera lens view finder. This area is near Ruby Ridge in Idaho. It was cops that were the murders at that fiasco. ANTIFA or some other Soros and company sponsored gang will eventually tip the egg off the wall and all hell will break loose somewhere.

    Citizens of Idaho are safe due to their own vigilance. Not the police. Police are viewed as no one’s friend or defender here. They are the paid thugs of the ruling politicians period. The enforcers of horrible laws. The champions of breaking and entering and theft of private property. Immune from virtually all prosecution. The defenders of the hive of thieves and ruling class.

    That prone cop is a proof of the pudding example of what level the police have sunk to in the mire. A true coward through and through. He should receive the John McCain award for traitor of the year.

  • Gordon Scott June 8, 2020, 9:01 AM

    Note the four stars on the shoulder of the police chief of Webster. In the armed forces, a full general would be running a major command, with possibly 100,000 men and women serving under his or her orders. In Webster, the police chief has 29 police under him. What’s more, there are only five ranks: patrolman, sergeant, lieutenant, assistant chief and chief.

    Patrolmen and sergeants would wear stripes. So with three ranks needing officer insignia, one had to be the highest–four stars–that the military offers.

    It looks to me like the lieutenant could wear a gold bar. The assistant chief could have a silver bar. The chief could wear the double bars of a captain, and wear a whole lot less pretentiousness.

  • Casey Klahn June 8, 2020, 9:18 AM

    I knew full well that I might be being gaslighted all weekend and sure as shit I was. If there truly had been a split between civilian and military in the capitol, that would’ve been Lexington and Concord on steroids. Conservative news and common taters fell for it and greased it along: Esper disobedient to Trump! Service chiefs teetering! NG disarmed and army retreating from DC!

    In fact (and in the hallowed recesses of my thin threads of sanity I expected as much) the police and the NG turned the tide of rioting in DC over the weekend. Lexington Green and Concord Bridge. Little Round Top. D Day in Normandy. The Pacific Islands. And now June 5-8, 2020 in Washington DC enters into the finest moments of the American irregulars.

    But for the lack of proper news I was shitting brix the whole time. The insurrectionist counter revolutionaries have the elements of surprise and the media narrative sewn up. We have the flag. See those uniformed members kneeling? They represent your loss of combat strength. There’s a scene in Mel Gibson’s Patriot where Heath Ledger goes into the church service and calls for muster of the militia. A portion of the men respond. Mel Gibson goes into the tavern and recruits the ugliest bunch of militiamen he can find. Many get killed and some desert. The warriors fight. Here we are today.

    What’s next? I guarantee you that there will be misinformation so crazy-making and enraging that you will think you’re losing your mind. Filter everything.

  • JacK June 8, 2020, 9:29 AM

    Here, in the black majority (infested) Deep South there have been the usual marches, flamboyant speeches filled with demands and the ever present media coverage but thus far no rioting, looting or burning…at least not that I am aware of.

    With a long and unbroken history of black mayors, all black city council and 99% black police there is a semblance of order and possibly some kind of an awareness that they live in a city whose utility infrastructure has collapsed, viz, backed up sewage, periodic water shortages and crumbling inner city streets and buildings, and, if they shit in their own soup, they’ll have to eat it. And, they know that Massa Trump ain’ gon gibbum no mo’ money if de teaah up dey own shit……

    So far so good and each day I check the morning news to find that these beloved citizens are only killing each other with no one upset about it. With that assurance, and the fact that I live out in the country, I take heart in the knowledge that I don’t have to wear my .45 in the house but I won’t leave my home without it.

    But this crap isn’t over yet, nope, not by a long shot and as mayors, police chiefs and other cowardly “officials” play into the hands of these black and Antifa thugs, more of them are sure to follow. It’s an interesting show, particularly when you realize that the most powerful nation in the world, with its entire history of liberty, democracy and work for the betterment of humans, seems to be collapsing under the demands of the assholes who are pushing this agenda. I’m stunned that Trump has not called out the military, grabbed the leaders of Antifa and done whatever is necessary to stop the mindlessness of these rioting marxists.

    And our military….WTF is wrong with Mathis and Powell and others who are turning on the POTUS? Their behavior is traitorous but I believe they fully plan to emerge from the dust of any coup, regardless of who is running the show, demand that the active military and NG fall into formation behind them and then impose military control over the entire country. I can only hope the military, under subordinate commanders will refuse to engage against American citizens. But you never know.

    Strange days indeed!

  • James ONeil June 8, 2020, 9:36 AM

    Just another relaxed day up here on top of the world.
    I noticed my freezer is full.
    Also, oddly enough I seem to be buying a lot of foods, canned, dried, whatever, that store well.
    I’ve been cutting a lot of trees, increasing the field of view and open perimeter around my house and stacking up a heck of a lot of firewood.
    I’ve spent time assuring my pickup truck, my Jeep, my tractor, my boat, my Kawasaki Mule are all in optimum running condition and fuel tanks are never less than half full.
    I’m sitting here thinking about I’ve probably spent more rounds on target practice in the last month or so than I have in the last four or five years.
