Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Stereotypes and the Martyr Complex: A Dangerous Combination

 

If you’re like me, you’ve spent the last few months trying to figure out the reasons for the near collapse of law and order in this country. Most of us realize that events following the George Floyd death have been in the planning stage for a long time; the Marxists saw a moment of weakness in our society and capitalized on it with merciless determination.

I get all that.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Black Lives Matter Goes Mainstream?

 

Last week, Julie Pace of the Associated Press was on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baer. She made a statement that stopped me in my tracks. (I seem to be doing a lot of that lately.) She said, “Black Lives Matter has gone mainstream.”

I asked myself what she could possibly have meant, and when I did a little research, I realized the insidious nature of her comment, and how we are in the process of making Black Lives Matter a mainstream movement.

After struggling for days with (mostly very distressing, and, as much as I hate to admit it, downright at times depressing) ideas of how to write about the monstrosity which has descended upon us in the form of “mostly peaceful” riots in numerous cities with untold loss of life and property, deliberate murders like those of retired Police Capt. David Dorn in St. Louis, injuries all across the Nation we love and revere, my search ended when I saw this heart-rending sign in a shop– begging for mercy. Begging! Figuratively on her knees pleading to the animals of lawlessness to please, please, please let her continue to make a living and provide for her children. Please!

I had originally started to write something based on Paul Harvey’s famous broadcast in 1965, entitled “If I Were The Devil”, bringing it up to date to show how what we are seeing in the last week is as pure an example of the work of Lucifer as any of us will ever see but decided, after seeing this image (which I believe, based on what research I was able to find, was of a shop in Santa Monica) nothing could more graphically illustrate the work of the Prince of Hatred than this pathetic sign.

This morning my blood ran cold when I heard the latest recommendation from the Minneapolis City Council: disband the police department. Sundance at the Conservative Tree House explains the background for this action:

The term ‘community policing’ has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Roberts Robs Citizens of Crucial Information

 

There has been plenty of commentary, on Ricochet and elsewhere (see first and especially Amy Howe’s analysis), about the decision penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by the four consistent leftists in relevant parts on Department of Commerce v. New York. One issue, and important consequence, seems unaddressed. By sending the matter back to the Federal District courts, without imposing a very accelerated calendar and requiring a decision back to the Supreme Court by the end of the summer, Roberts has effectively pushed back any actual count of the illegal alien population by a decade! He has kept the political process uninformed, except by competing guesses, presented as statistical models and sample data. This is the point on which President Trump should be hammering daily.

Roberts did not rule that a citizenship question is unconstitutional, but he did not need to, as his opinion, as written, runs out the clock nicely. Instead, he relied on insinuations that Wilbur Ross had racist motives and had lied to cover up these racist motives. By entertaining this smear job by the lower courts, Roberts diverted the conversation from the ultimate bipartisan elite goal, perpetuating their numbers racket.

From the Ricochet Twitter feed, via James Poulos: Using the threat of an unlimited Treasury investigation, the President and Senator Dick Durbin stopped Walgreen (WAG) from moving to Switzerland. The wreckage of some $10 billion in lost stock value for mostly Main Street investors was left as a grim reminder not to cross the government […]

We’re all pretty unified on the topic of the lawless behavior of Barack Obama, like when he chooses not to enforce various provisions of Obamacare or immigration law. I’m sure most of us would like to believe that we would hold a Republican president to higher standards than Democrats hold Obama. But I wonder if […]

Those of us in the Commonwealth of Virginia who take our ability to defend ourselves and our ability to keep and bear arms seriously have had to put up with the ridiculous behavior of not just our committed enemies in the federal government, but also with those in the state government. Delegate Joe Morrissey is […]

As Martin Luther once nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church of Wittenberg in 1517, Ted Cruz has released a list of 76 ‘lawless’ actions performed by Obama. I love the imagery of it all, I only wish he had literally nailed it to the front door of a capital building […]
