I regret having to omit City Council news last week. Timing circumstances have to be adjusted due to production schedules. Work-around is under way for next meeting.


A response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion"

Hi Kelly,
Your complaint concerning my misquote of your statement last week is valid. I accidentally omitted "accused marauding criminals", though I would have added "questionably" accused in those cases inflicting punishment by solitary confinement for misdemeanors like "Parading in Capitol area". My sincere apologies.

Though "Guns are not the only weapons that can cause severe bodily harm”, the absence of guns was my subject. Also, we were discussing the activity during the six-hour Capitol riot, not "the days preceding the riot" or whatever may have been found "across the river" by unknown parties.

Exactly one death occurred during that six-hour riot, that of an unarmed female Air Force veteran, shot by a negligent Capitol Police Officer, neither explained nor punished.

As to alleged Trump conspiracy, again: Nor was it ..."the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential [election]...( Please cite any contradictory information.

"Five people died either shortly before, during, or following the [Capitol] event: "One was shot by Capitol Police, another died of a drug overdose, and three died of natural causes."

COMPARE that with the summer of BLM and Antifa riots of 2021: "According to a September 2020 estimate, arson, vandalism and looting caused about $1–2 billion in insured (not counting un-insured!) damage between May 26 and June 8, making this initial phase of the George Floyd protests the civil disorder event with the highest recorded damage in United States history.[7][34]'"At least 25 Americans were killed during protests and political unrest in 2020." How much FBI investigation targeted this - compared to six hours on 1-6-2020?

Black Lives Matter "Google has committed $12 million, [to BLM] while both Facebook and Amazon are donating $10 million..." Apple is pledging a whopping $100 million." But who's in charge?

BLM was founded by three African-American women, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometiln. "In a revealing 2015 interview, Cullors said, “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.” (American Heritage).

Kahn-Cullors quit (if she really did) after The Post revealed that she’d spent some $3.2 million buying real estate across the country, including a $1.4 million home just outside Malibu, Calif.

One BLM demand proclaims that: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear-family-structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.” A partner organization, the Movement for Black Lives, or M4BL, calls for abolishing all police and all prisons.

Another M4BL demand is “the retroactive decriminalization, immediate release and record -expungement of all drug-related offenses and prostitution and reparations for the devastating impact of the ‘war on drugs’ and criminalization of prostitution.”

"Who exactly is running the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the legal entity that runs the national BLM movement, and deciding how to spend the $60 million it has on hand?"

Most recently, the major players in BLM have disappeared, together with that $60 million.

No thinking, God-fearing, loyal American citizen should support BLM. It is a poisonous, fraudulent, Communist, America-hating organization, joined with the other Communist (can I say domestic terrorists?) worldwide to destroy democracy. "The [BLM]group's radical Marxist agenda would supplant the basic building block of society—the family—with the state and destroy the economic system that has lifted more people from poverty than any other. Black lives, and all lives, would be harmed." (This piece originally appeared in the NY Post). The Heritage Foundation."

The January 6 rioters (thanks for not referring to them as "insurrectionists") did not seek to "overthrow" the government. They sought to remedy a fraudulent election. I will, next week, reprint the numerous mathematical proofs from those MIT, Harvard, Stanford, mathematics PhDs, et al, and challenge all competent deniers to disprove their work. They stake their professional reputations on that work. I'll condense it and will skip the thousand-plus eyewitness testimonies of fraud.

Checking the FBI's "definitions" page, under "Domestic Terrorism" I believe most of the 1-6-2020 rioters should not qualify, under any reasonable application, with some exceptions. Again: Exclusive: "FBI finds scant evidence U.S. Capitol attack was coordinated ..." Question: why the ambiguous use of the word "scant"?

But, to be clear, the riot was unlawful. The central issue, however, is equal justice under law - how it is administered fairly, without prejudice.

On the racism remark, how else can a reasonable person interpret it? In an age of fools (not you) who proclaim mathematics to be racist, you should expect everyone to be "extremely sensitive" if only in self-defense.

Next week - sound the alarm! Red Handed, How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, by Peter Schweizer; just released. Why we should believe the U.S. is on the cusp of being subdued, financially and militarily, which makes all this talk of Capitol rioting comparative political amusement. And, why it's not fiscally prudent for anyone to be (now) $30-Trillion in debt.
