Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. They Murdered Her for Saying All Lives Matter

 
Murdered 24 year old wife and mother
Murdered by the insurgency, her three year old will never know her

It is a season of remembering names. I am adding one to the list. She was shot dead on July 5 in Indianapolis for exercising her First Amendment rights by responding to mostly peaceful rioters proclaiming that black lives matter with “all lives matter”.

Her name is Jessica Doty Walker, and these hate mongers canceled her permanently. The cowards pulled guns on her and her friends, who responded in kind. So the BLMers deescalated, bumped fists, and waited nearby in ambush for them to leave and then fired from cover.

Disease and Death are making a summer of it. Disease in the form of COVID-19 is surging again following re-opening of the economy across the land. Whether you want to call it a first or second wave, numbers of new cases are at the highest level ever in many places. This is reflected by similar […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Mayor of Seattle’s Summer of Blood

 

The mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, and her comrades in city government may now have blood on their hands. They not only allowed but supported the CHOP anarchist zone in downtown Seattle by replacing temporary anarchist-built barricades with more permanent concrete ones but also allowed city officials to supply the anarchists with food and portable toilets.

In the early morning hours of Saturday, a 19-year-old man was shot and killed and another is in critical condition. Circumstances of the shooting/killing are not known because the police who responded to the 9-1-1 call were prevented from retrieving the victim and the other injured man.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Future of Our Cities

 

Buildings on Hamilton Avenue, Detroit.
In 1968, in the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King, a great many American cities were engulfed by riots. In one such city – Detroit – the mayor, a well-meaning liberal Democrat named Jerome Cavanaugh, made a fateful decision to rein in the police and let the riot burn itself out. To his judgment, the state’s governor – George Romney – deferred, and the riots went on for five full days. “Burn, baby, burn,” they said. And burn it did.

Eighteen years before, Detroit had been the richest city in the United States – with a per capita income exceeding that in every other urban area in the country. By 1968, it was no longer so well situated. But it was prosperous. It was vibrant. The architecture was stunning; the churches, beautiful; the picture palaces, a wonder.

I admittedly tread on treacherous ground here. My wife doesn’t know I’m about to share this story. She would likely spike this post if she did. It’s really personal. My wife is very upset over the coverage and reaction of the George Floyd murder. But not for the reason you think. More

Coleman Hughes joins Brian Anderson to discuss the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery, the widespread claims that his alleged murderers were motivated by racism, and public reaction to the killing—the subjects of Hughes’s article, “The Illusion of Certainty.”

Ahmaud Arbery’s violent death at the hands of Gregory and Travis McMichael has sparked nationwide outrage and reignited the debate over racial profiling. But “while it’s tempting to assume that the McMichaels were motivated by racism,” writes Hughes, “the only intellectually honest position is to admit that we do not know what motivated them—at least, not yet.”

I was listening to my pastor preach on Sunday morning (online, of course) when I notice something moving through the corner of my eye. When I turned my head I could see the shape of a wasp. No, it wasn’t flying around my living room, instead it was trying to get out of a plastic […]

Last Friday Tennessee was advised by the 6th US Court of Appeals that the right to abort one’s child is an essential. constitutional. right. And preventing the spread of Covid-19 cannot be allowed to hinder this “essential constitutional right”. Never mind that nobody knew until 1973 that this essential right was guaranteed by the Constitution. […]

The young Miss Thunberg is receiving some criticism from those not numbered amongst her ardent fans for what many are suggesting is a, well, frankly murderous suggestion: “World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that. We will make sure that we put […]

David French of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news that U.S. sanctions are inflicting a devastating economic toll and putting a lot of political pressure on North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un. They also cringe at reports that President Trump promised China two months ago that he would not condemn a Chinese crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong. And they hammer PolitiFact for refusing to criticize Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris over their characterization of Michael Brown’s death as murder. PolitiFact says, “Legally, it wasn’t. How much should this word choice matter?”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. More Rats! And Racism?

 

RatsThe left has settled on the election strategy of screaming “racist, racist, racist” at President Trump and any who dare show any support for him. It need not be true if it works, as Senator Harry Reid shamelessly admitted after smearing Mitt Romney into defeat. Yelling “that’s racist!” is also a defensive move by Democrats, fearful of President Trump showing they no longer have a monopoly on peoples’ votes based on skin color. President Trump can win bigly in the 2020 election, and put his tormentors on the back foot now, if he simply goes on offense, keeping his promises made in on Trump’s New Deal for Black America. In so doing, he can make a substantial positive difference in the lives of forgotten and exploited Americans, cleaning up the rats, and the dirty rotten rats in local and state governments.

RatsRats and violence in Baltimore, as in other cities, are indicators of basic civil society and local government breakdown. President Trump, as a developer between New York and New Jersey, has a long memory of stories that fed his tweets about Congressman Elijah Cummings’ hometown. This is not dinner-time viewing, but it is a fair sampling of local Baltimore stories since 2013. If you find the following a bit much, I note that cats chase rats, and you can chase the images here with a wonderful cat tale: “The Mother.”

The Atlantic had this 2014 story of an independent photojournalist documenting neglect of entire blocks of empty buildings:

This is what real “hate crimes” legislation and prosecution looks like: “A second man convicted in the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr. is set to be executed this week.” A second man convicted of dragging a black man to death is set to be executed by Texas this week. This monster would be spending the rest of his life, maybe, as a ward of the state in California, or Washington State, or New York, or fill in your Democrat-controlled state here.

In Paterson, New Jersey six people were shot, one killed, over a seven hour period last Thursday. It appears to have been four separate, and seemingly unrelated, shootings. New Jersey has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. If you are don’t mind paperwork and have good references you can own a gun […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Cuomo’s Abortion Law and Murder

 

A pregnant woman was killed in Queens. Witnesses heard her scream, “He’s going to kill the baby!” The attacker stabbed her repeatedly, including multiple stabs into her belly. It would seem he was indeed targeting the baby. The killer turned out to be the victim’s ex-boyfriend. He was caught and will be charged with one count of murder in the second degree.

You may ask, what exactly does this horrendous crime have to do with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Reproductive Health Act? Prior to that law being enacted there would have been additional charges for killing the unborn child. Now, aborting a child is never a crime, even if the abortion is performed against the mother’s will. The murder of the mother is still a crime, but killing the baby is not. That means this man will only be facing one count of murder.

I invested 10 hours or so in viewing “Tin Star”, a 10 part series, on Amazon Prime. I found the program to be interesting and involving, particularly in its depiction of family relations and loyalties as they face challenges to their family bonds. The performances were uniformly excellent and I just had to find out […]
