Jacob Blake Was Apparently Kidnapping a Child

De facto presidential candidate Kamala Harris says she is proud of Jacob Blake. This reflects alarmingly on her character, because Blake’s character is not in dispute. At the time he was shot while violently resisting arrest, Blake was wanted for felony domestic abuse. Now it appears he was in the process of kidnapping a child:

Police Officer Rusten Sheskey has told investigators that it wasn’t just his life he was defending when he fired his weapon seven times at Jacob Blake last month in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He said he used deadly force during the chaotic encounter because he was afraid Blake, while attempting to flee the scene, was trying to kidnap a child in the backseat of the vehicle.

“He’s got my kid. He’s got my keys,” Sheskey heard a woman say, according to attorney Brendan Matthews, who is representing the officer. If Sheskey had allowed Blake to drive away and something happened to the child “the question would have been ‘why didn’t you do something?'” Matthews said.

Officer Sheskey would have been in no position to do anything but bleed if he had not shot Blake.

At the time Sheskey opened fire, the lawyer said, Blake held a knife in his hand and twisted his body toward the officer.

This has been corroborated.

Matthews said a second officer at the scene, whom he also represents, provided investigators with a similar account of Blake turning toward Sheskey with a knife in his hand immediately prior to the shooting. That officer said he too would have opened fire but did not have a clear angle, according to the lawyer.

Authorities have said Blake had a knife in his possession and the weapon was found on the floorboard of the vehicle.

It was crazy enough to expect Sheskey to just stand there and let this vicious criminal gut him like a fish. Crazier still, he was supposed to let himself die to facilitate an apparent kidnapping.

To take crazy to the ultimate extreme, Kenosha was partially burned down to protest the “racism” of Sheskey not letting Blake kill him. Kamala Harris evidently approves of this.

As morally depraved as Harris, the liberal establishment continues to deify Jacob Blake. NFL players wear his name on their helmets. Tim Pool is right to be disgusted:

Convicted Cop Killer to Be Released

With police officers being shot in the street by mostly peaceful Black Lives Matter rioters, liberal readers will agree that now is a great time to release a convicted cop killer with a black supremacist background.

Via PIX11:

A man convicted in the 1971 Black Liberation Army assassination of two NYPD officers will be released on parole in October, the widow and daughter of NYPD Patrolman Joseph Piagentini told PIX11.

The killer is known as Anthony Bottom, though he now goes by Jalil Abdul Mutaqim. He is expected to be released within a month into a society much more receptive to his ideology, now that it has evolved into the quasi-official religion of the liberal establishment.

Bottom/Mutaqim has been in state prison for over 43 years. This is far too long. In a sane world, he would only have been locked up long enough to hold the trial.

Then he would have been executed. That way, we wouldn’t have to worry about the liberals who run New York setting him loose again.

Bottom lured two patrolmen with a phony 911 call so as to kill them. Murdering police officers has since been endorsed by the music industry through songs like “Cop Killer” by Ice-T and “F*** the Police” by NWA.

Bottom and two other BLA members had come to New York from California specifically to assassinate police officers.

When the officers responded to the housing project, they were ambushed from behind with a fusillade of bullets.

As if any other reasons were needed not inflict Bottom on the public, he is said to have coronavirus.

Bottom appeared before the parole board on September 11, reminding us how much things have changed in 19 years. The attack on America is on a far more massive scale now, and comes from within. Police are no longer honored for their bravery, but rather are vilified and sometimes even imprisoned.

President of NYC’s Police Benevolent Association Patrick Lynch is less than pleased with Bottom’s impending release:

“They knew that changing the parole guidelines would unleash more vicious killers like Anthony Bottom back onto our streets,” Lynch said. “They have chosen to stand with the murderers, cold-blooded assassins, and radicals bent on overthrowing our society. We have now seen 16 cop killers released in less than three years. We will continue to see more unless New Yorkers wake up and speak out against the madness being done in their names.”

That is not going to happen soon, with the last sane people pouring out of the state.

Background on Bottom shows that the more things change, the more they stay the same:

Bottom had joined the Black Panther Party in the late 1960s, after the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

He believed that armed resistance was necessary to address systemic racism in society.

With that attitude, maybe he can find work as an anchor on CNN.

Liberal authorities who release these fiends back onto the streets should be charged as accomplices to their future crimes.

Watch Seattle Protester Hit Cop in Head With Baseball Bat

When the media and corporate America praise Black Lives Matter, they praise the shooting of two police officers in Louisville yesterday in reaction to authorities’ refusal to immolate three other officers to the BLM cause (the indictment of one officer failed to placate the mob). The media and corporate America praise this:

A shocking video from Wednesday night’s riots in Seattle shows a man dressed in all black violently smash a police officer in the back of the head with a metal baseball bat.

More terrorist violence:

The Seattle Police Department also noted that an individual threw an explosive at law enforcement officers at approximately 10:45 p.m. on Wednesday night. The incendiary device “exploded near waiting bike officers.”

It wasn’t the only explosive thrown at officers last night.

Here’s video of the baseball bat attack:

Hear that crack? If the officer hadn’t been wearing a helmet, that would have been his skull.

Insurrection is not a game. It is past time to employ lethal force against “mostly peaceful protesters” who attack the police. If we wait until the situation gets any further out of hand, the leftist maniacs who rule the streets of Seattle may rule us all from Washington.

The media will screech like a scalded cat if appropriate force is used. That is because the leftists running the media and the brownshirts assaulting police officers are on the same team. Civilization is running out of time to stand up to them.

Cop Indicted in Louisville, Mob Not Placated

Lest a leftist mob burn down Louisville, Officer Brett Hankison has been indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree. His crime was to return fire after Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker had shot a fellow officer. Taylor was accidently killed in the incident.

Hankison is not the only victim of moonbattery in this heavily exploited case. Taxpayers are on the hook for a $12 million jackpot justice payout to Breonna Taylor’s relatives.

Yet still the mob is not satisfied. It will never be satisfied, so long as people yield to it.

Black Lives Matter types have taken to the streets for the predictable show of force. Presumably they want Hankison charged with murder, as well as the other officers involved, Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly.

Mattingly required surgery after he was shot in the leg during the firefight. A letter he wrote to his fellow officers should be read by everyone:

Mattingly writes, “It’s sad how the good guys are demonized, and criminals are canonized.” It’s not only sad but terrifying, if you consider where it will lead.

A civilization can only stand for as long as the people comprising it have the character to hold it up. We don’t need to have as much character as cops who face gunfire to keep us safe. But we must have enough to side with them against mobs. Otherwise, we will soon find ourselves ruled by criminals.

In the meantime, we get to live in a country where criminals know that the police may be imprisoned if they return gunfire.

Defund the Police Activist Alyssa Milano Calls Cops Over Nothing

Hollywood isn’t good for much anymore, but at least moonbat starlets like Alissa Milano can still lift our spirits by providing a good laugh. This righteous activist who demands that the police be defunded so that anarchy may reign called the police herself recently. Fittingly, it turned out to be over squirrels.

From the Daily Mail:

Alyssa Milano was quick to call cops when she believed an armed gunman was on her Bell Canyon property on Sunday morning.

The call ignited a response that included seven Ventura County Sheriffs’ vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team that sat down the street on standby.

Sounds like quite the operation. Must have cost taxpayers a fortune.

The “armed gunman” turned out to be a neighborhood teen shooting at squirrels with an air gun.

Here’s why calling the cops was classic liberal hypocrisy:

In July, the left leaning activist Alyssa tweeted out to her 3.7 million followers a link, urging them to sign the ‘People’s Budget L.A.’ that demands a 90 percent reduction in police funding.

A 90% reduction would not leave resources to maintain basic public safety, much less to investigate teens hunting squirrels with air guns. However, Alyssa doesn’t live in crime-ravaged Compton or Watts, but 20 minutes north of the city in a secure $2.5 million home.

A neighbor explains the discrepancy between Milano’s activism and behavior:

“She can tweet those things because at the end of the day she lives behind gates in a gated community. She knows the police will come to save her. But what about all those people who don’t have that luxury and live in unsafe neighborhoods? She obviously doesn’t care.”

#AlyssaMilanoIsALie previously trended on Twitter when she abandoned the #MeToo movement to side with Joe Biden against Tara Reade, who has accused him of sexual assault. Looks like it is making a comeback.

Minneapolis City Council: Where Are the Police?

After the leftists comprising the Minneapolis City Council exploited the George Floyd spectacle to declare war on the police, even unanimously pledging to abolish the police department, crime predictably shot into the stratosphere. Now the city’s rulers wonder, where are the police?

Minnesota Public Radio reports on a Tuesday meeting of the Minneapolis City Council:

[F]or much of the two-hour meeting, council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings. And they asked Arradondo what the department is doing about it.

What police officers are doing is laying low so that they do not get thrown in jail to await kangaroo court trials, like the cops involved in the arrest of George Floyd, who apparently died of a massive fentanyl overdose while in police custody.

To quote councilmember Jamal Osman,

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?”

About 100 officers have left the department so far this year. The rest are probably in hiding from the local government, which has ostentatiously sided with criminals against them.

The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019.

No one could be surprised by any of this, considering the aggressive emphasis on glorifying criminals and hobbling the police for being “systemically racist.”

Council members in wards which usually don’t see high levels of violence say their constituents are feeling “terrorized.”

Terrorizing is what terrorists do. The council enthusiastically backed Black Lives Matter in the terror campaign that resulted in the destruction of hundreds of local businesses.

You can’t expect anything other than an explosion of criminal violence after moonbattery like this:

Recently, the council took more than $1 million from the police budget to hire “violence interrupters” to intervene and defuse potentially violent confrontations.

Council member Phillipe Cunningham continues to believe that we don’t need police if we have violence interrupters:

“If we have these systems in place we are getting ahead of the violence,” said Cunningham. “That’s why I have advocated so strongly for the violence interrupters, because if they are interrupting the violence before the guns are being fired, then the MPD doesn’t have to respond to that violence.”

If only we had moonbattery interrupters, liberal cities like Minneapolis might yet be saved from ruin.

“What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into MPD,” Cunningham said.

Better late than never.

It is likely that Phillipe Cunningham, who apparently took hormones to grow a beard and identifies as a man, has spent much of her life in a state of flabbergastation.

Moonbat View on Self-Defense

I don’t know who the guy narrating the video below is, but by the way he talks, he sounds like a genuine moonbat. Let’s see what he has to say about the crucial issue of self-defense, particularly as it pertains to law enforcement:

“A cop shouldn’t just be able to shoot somebody in self-defense. Nobody should be able to shoot somebody in self-defense, unless there’s obviously like uh you know, I don’t know [giggle]…”

It’s good to know that these people think their positions through before trying to impose them through domestic terrorism.

Applied BLM Ideology: Los Angeles County Deputies Shot

There is a price to be paid for whipping the public into a rage against law enforcement. Fortunately for the ideological arsonists comprising the liberal media, they aren’t the ones who pay it. People who live in crime-ridden neighborhoods pay it. So do the police:

[T]wo Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were shot in their patrol car Saturday by a suspect who “opened fire without warning or provocation,” authorities said.

The attack occurred around 7 pm in Compton. Both deputies are in critical condition after receiving shots to the head.

The prevailing ideology makes the most likely motive obvious.

One of the officers is the mother of a 6-year-old boy. You can’t make a racial justice omelet without breaking some eggs.

The shooter is described only as a “dark-skinned male.”

He looks like a little kid, young enough to be manipulated into accepting the BLM narrative at face value. Overpaid athletes are primary role models in hellholes like Compton. This is what those athletes have been theatrically kneeling to. More explicitly, the triple platinum rap album Straight Outta Comptom includes the song “F*** tha Police,” which calls for assassinating police officers.

LEOs have been executed on behalf of BLM’s ideology in the past (e.g., New York, Dallas).

Whatever the shooter’s motive, he has support. Mostly peaceful protesters went after the hospital treating the deputies.

A local faith leader who came to the hospital to pray for the deputies, told a KABC reporter that some of the protesters had been shouting slogans like “Death to police!”

Protesters were blocking the entrance to the hospital emergency room and yelling, “We hope they die,” referring to the two deputies, the sheriff’s office said.

Others might have died as a result of obstructed access to the emergency room, but it was all for a good cause, according to what we have been force-fed relentlessly by the liberal establishment.

Language alert — watch BLM activists on a mission of mercilessness to the hospital where the “murderers” (i.e., the deputies someone attempted to murder) are fighting for their lives:

Al Sharpton Contra Black Lives Matter Ideology

You know the Left has gone off the rails when premier race hustler Al Sharpton emerges as a relative voice of reason. While Bill de Blasio et al defund the police, driving the crime rate into the stratosphere, Sharpton demurs:

“To take all policing off is something that I think a latte liberal may go for as they sit around the Hamptons discussing this as some academic problem,” Sharpton said.

“But people living on the ground need proper policing,” he said.

Specifically regarding New York City,

Sharpton noted how certain neighborhoods are indeed suffering from gun violence when asked about the safety of the city.

That would mainly be black neighborhoods. Blacks are the first victims of the antipolice Black Lives Matter ideology that has been embraced by the liberal establishment.

Comic Projection: Biden Accuses Trump of Wanting to Defund Police

Democrats are so used to the media gaslighting on their behalf that no projection of their own flaws onto their opponents is too obvious a lie. Biden has even proclaimed that “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump.”

Seeing is not believing with Democrat pols:

Biden proclaimed in an interview with Ady Barkan that he would “absolutely” redirect funding from the police, who he had just characterized as having “become the enemy.” But this stance is not playing well in the polls, so Biden pins it on his opponent.

Via Breitbart:

[Biden] accused Trump of attempting to cut $400 million from “state and local help.”

A Breitbart News Fact Check from July found Biden’s repeated claim to be “false.”

A major source of Biden’s claim seems to stem from the proposed $244 million cut from the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP), which assists state and local agencies with detaining illegal aliens who commit crimes.

Instead, Trump wants to use that money for border enforcement instead, shifting resources closer to the problem.

Painting Trump as hostile to the police is a tough sell for the party that has ostentatiously aligned itself with the rabidly antipolice rioters of Black Lives Matter — especially considering that Trump has been endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police and the National Association of Police Organizations. But no doubt the media will help Biden as best it can.

Free School Supplies Feature Radical Propaganda

Leftists saturate every aspect of our world with propaganda, with an emphasis on the young and impressionable. A particularly insidious example occurred last Monday in Pueblo, Colorado.

Community Resources United and the Pueblo Education Coalition put on a free school supply drive. Parents could drive through the parking lot of the El Pueblo History Museum and pick up a bag of supplies that included a pencil case, highlighters, pencils — and a coloring page with the theme “All Cats Are Beautiful” that caught one parent’s eye:

“I noticed the A.C.A.B letters written on the side of the border. And it kind of triggered something in my brain,” she said. “It was like, I’ve seen that before, I recognize A.C.A.B.”

So would anyone who has seen unairbrushed coverage of the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots that have wreaked devastating havoc for the past 3 months. Mostly peaceful vandals spray paint “ACAB” onto every available surface. It stands for “All Cops Are Bastards.”

Compared to burning down Minneapolis, this might seem too subtle to be the work of today’s emboldened moonbats. But it was no coincidence. The bag also included a flier listing reasons to defund the Pueblo Police Department.

At this point, you can no longer ignore them. They have infiltrated everything. It’s not as if you can turn on a ball game and escape from leftism. All you can do is turn and fight back.

How a BLM Activist Learned His Lesson

It does not appear that the police did anything wrong in the shooting of Jacob Blake. Jarrett Maupin, Phoenix’s answer to Al Sharpton, should be able to explain why, after taking part in a police training exercise:

The narrative that the police racially oppress blacks is fake. It has been proven seven ways to Sunday that Michael Brown was shot in self-defense. George Floyd probably died of a fentanyl overdose. Jacob Blake was shot while going for a weapon. In none of these cases has any evidence been presented that race was a factor. The Black Lives Matter movement consists of malice wrapped in a lie.

Despite the lesson he learned from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Maupin continues to exploit the lie as leader of All Black Lives Matter Arizona. He recently planned a march in Phoenix that might have degenerated into yet another devastating riot. But he called it off, supposedly due to threats. Maybe his conscience acted up.
