  • How a Justice Department unit functioned as agitator following the death of Michael Brown

    Basil Duke to detective

    I served in a media relations capacity for former St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley for many years. (Charlie was County Executive when Michael Brown attacked Officer Darren Wilson and died for his sins.)From the relationships I cultivated as a result of this work, I know for a fact that at the apex of the rioting - when the BLM terrorists were setting fire to various Ferguson buildings, smashing windows, scaring the crap out of ordinary area citizens (of ALL ethnicities) and generally running amok, President B. Obama called Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and County Exec Dooley and told them to “Let ‘em vent.” That’s why the Missouri National Guard stood down, and local police agencies were so passive during the orc offensive. Like good Dems, Nixon and Dooley toed the company line. Obama wanted to let his lads tear things up. And so they did.

    NO, it is NOT finished! That’s what the left WANTS us to think, so that we throw up our hands in disgust and despair and quit fighting. If you knew the true numbers - i.e., the number of ‘them’ versus ‘us,’ - you’d realize how weak the demonic swine truly are. They thrive on deceit and bluff. Why did the ‘progressives’ suffer such blistering defeats in ‘10 and ‘14? (Not that the resulting GOP gains have done us much good.) We are far from finished.

    “They will be required to set goals....” What’s the penalty for non-compliance? How will they enforce this totalitarian dung - consent decree? Withholding of federal monies? Homeland Security disappearing squads? How much federal money does Cornland, Illinois (an actual community) receive? Similarly, what happens if Cornland, Illinois simply ignores the whole matter - no ‘goals’ and no reports?

    This is all part of the master plan - make it as difficult as possible for normal Americans to own/operate motor vehicles so that escape is hopeless, force us onto orc-filled buses and trains where diversity can be embraced to its fullest, shoe-horn everybody into “sustainable/walkable neighborhoods,” and, presto, fundamental transformation!!! Everyone is trapped in the same, leftwing rat hole. Bike fetishists claim a majority of Americans DEMAND more bike lanes and fewer lanes for motor vehicles, but it’s all nonsense - pure community organizing clap-trap fiction. I know this for a fact. These fascists poll themselves at bike riding events, and then claim the results are a scientific survey: “98 percent of Americans say they’d ride bikes everywhere, every day, if they just had the lanes to do so!” You’d get as legitimate a poll if you surveyed all the patrons of a San Francisco drag bar and asked if they support gay marriage.

  • Federal report faults police actions during (Obama-incited) Ferguson unrest

    Ferguson, like Baltimore, was nothing more than political agit-prop theater - directed by the ‘community organizer,’ with all the power of the federal government at his disposal. He has no qualms about loosing his foot soldiers on an entire community to burn and loot. They’ll do worse by the end of ‘16, I imagine. Baltimore was the logical next step. There’ll be more. Any ‘outrage’ will suffice to keep the pot bubbling - like the ridiculous pool party incident in Texas. (I should add that the bodyguard I mentioned in my first post was physically present in the room when Governor Nixon got his non-marching orders from Obama.)

    Basil Duke to E. Pluribus Unum

    I’ve mentioned this before on a previous thread, so excuse the redundancy: I work and live in Clayton, Missouri (St. Louis County’s ‘seat’), and interact daily with the St. Louis County Executive’s office - and have for many years. Several weeks ago, the previous County Executive’s (Charlie Dooley) full-time bodyguard during the Ferguson circus told me that Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (DEMOCRAT) ordered the Missouri National Guard, Missouri Highway Patrol, local law enforcement etc., to stand down because Obama personally told Nixon to ‘Let ‘em vent.” And Nixon obeyed orders - no doubt expecting to be rewarded with a cabinet position by doing so. So, you see how this works: Federal government orchestrates a days-long riot in which dozens of stores are burned and looted, and an entire community is held hostage by the orcs mobilized, financed and turned loose by same said federal government - and the same federal government then blames local law enforcement for the riots. Ergo: white America is racist, and changes must be made!!!!!

    You’ll be hearing a lot more from Ferguson in about six weeks, when the social justice orcs launch a new terrorist offensive to coincide with the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death. The South Carolina church massacre was just too perfect - providing the race grifting commanders all the fodder they need to prop up their ridiculous meme about rabid whites hunting blacks for sport. The Ferguson Front will reopen with a vigor.

    Basil Duke to originalbuckeye

    In my experience (as a middle-aged male, divorced for seven years), American women are, in general, arrogant in almost a feral way - at least the younger ones. They run in packs, and, although they at heart despise each other, they reserve their venom for any hapless lad foolish enough to attempt to engage them in conversation. Since birth, these narcissistic beasts have had their rear ends kissed by their fathers, their hands petted and stroked at school and generally flowered into the human version of a Venus fly trap to believe that they’re incredibly special - and that their male counterparts are boorish and unncessary at best, and something to be destroyed and humiliated if at all possible. Their contempt for the opposite sex is palpable. Oddly, older women - having imploded their marriages in their early cougar phase and subsequently and simultaneously found themselves broke and sprouting wrinkles, stomach pouches and faint mustaches - are much more humble and nice. Some of them are even generous! Desperation will do that, even to a woman, I suppose. A pity they have to wreak so much havoc and misery before reaching that stage.

    Feminist hyenas have been sputtering about the invidious “male gaze” - i.e., a man’s natural inclination to look at a woman - for many moons. Talk about science denial. In the estimation of your typical women’s studies professor (or one of the hundreds of shrikes she’s ‘mentored’ and turned loose on society during her tenure), human sexual nature is artificial, and demeaning to women. Many young people have either consciously or subconciously absorbed this fascist, anti-humanist nonsense, thus producing the idiotic remark from Seinfeld’s daughter. She’s been indoctrinated - programmed, really. In a few years, she’ll be accusing some poor SOB of rape eighteen months after they engaged in entirely consensual sex after a night of cocktails. Yes, boys ARE indeed in world of hurt. And it’s only going to get worse. The fundamental transformation is ratcheting into high gear.

    Nixon looked like such a feckless tool in so many different ways - particularly when he let the local ‘social justice’ clowns hijack HIS press conference. They forced him from the podium, and he slunk off like the neutered hound that he’s always been! I’d love to know what Obama promised him -and then failed to deliver. If the guv had any higher aspirations before last August, they’re certainly bottoms up now.

    I work in Clayton, MO - St. Louis County’s seat, and the scene of some of last year’s tamer “social justice” demonstrations. Earlier this week, I talked to the chief body guard of the (now-former) St. Louis County executive. Per the bodyguard (a St. Louis County cop privy - due to his regular proximity to the county exec - to personal and phone conversations not intended for the peasants), the decision to let Ferguson burn last November “came from way above the governor.” After a few seconds, I asked: “The White House?” “Yep,” the bodyguard replied. “Obama told the governor and the county executive to “let ‘em vent.” And that’s why we just stood by like fools and let them do whatever they wanted. Obama wanted to let ‘em vent.”

    I had a somewhat similar experience. Flat tire in a black neighborhood. Not more than a minute after I got out and started the changing process, the local orcs started to form up across the street. Luckily, they dispersed after I violently rapped my tire iron several times against the wall of my truck bed. I looked several of them directly in the eyes the entire time I was wailing away. I have no doubt that they would have assaulted me - at the very least - had I not displayed aggression. It’s like a friggin’ jungle environment with these feral mutts.

    ‘White privilege’ is the left’s latest agit-prop talking point - an abjectly meaningless phrase that’s supposed to pass for serious debate and summarily silence all dissenting voices (similar to “Koch Brothers,” “Faux News,” “Tea Baggers” and “Haliburton”). More recently, they vigorously pushed the war on women fairy tale, and had their red hats handed to them in November. So it’s time to re-set. We of the alabaster flesh are, I presume, supposed to kneel and confess our sin - the sin of ‘melanin deficiency.” And then sit in the corner until we die. It’s Mao’s ‘struggle sessions’ regurgitated with a shiny new bow. I was born, therefore I am irreparably flawed.

    The terrorists will almost certainly pillage in Clayton - the county seat (and where I live). It’s affluent, and serves as home to the courthouse, prosecuting attorney’s office, St. Louis County Police hq and the County Government Center (where the County Executive works). Metrolink - the region’s light rail system - is conveniently situated, and will drop the thugs off just two blocks from the courthouse (and about three blocks from my place).

    Clayton actually has a fair amount of rental property - much of which is occupied by university types (Washington University professors and students, mainly, and most of whom are Chinese and Indian). I live in a 12-unit building, and am the only white person there. I would also bet that I’m the only armed person there, as well. A perimeter defense would be next to impossible to coordinate, as my neighbors barely speak English and likely have no clue about the true nature of the threat that will erupt once/if the grand jury issues a no bill. Clayton residents who live in single family houses are nearly all very wealthy, and vote Democrat. Think “Granny Warren” and you’ll come up with a national candidate to their collective liking. If the storm does engulf us, they’ll get what they deserve.

    Yep. Many consider the Panther to be the finest medium tank produced by any country in the entire war. High velocity 75 mm cannon, sloped glacis armor and wide tracks made it an excellent, all-purpose tank. The Germans frittered away a lot of time and material on dead-end wunderweapons like the King Tiger and Elephant, when they would have been far better served maximizing Panther production - and jet fighter development.

    The malls, chain restaurants (like Applebee’s, Red Lobster, etc.), public amusement facilities, Laclede’s Landing, Delmar’s Loop, etc. are all being devoured by these savage parasites. And yet they stand in the middle of W. Florissant Avenue (Ground Zero in Ferguson for you non-St. Louis residents) and demand that WE change our behavior and way of thinking. Their M.O., though, is rather clever: they mass their strength and deploy it against a numerically weaker enemy. I mean, they’re going up against individual families at Six Flags - thirty or forty sociopathic beasts swarming five normal humans from the suburbs (only one of whom is a grown male). It’s the same scenario in Ferguson. The taxpayers up there aren’t organized (although they SHOULD be), and have no hope of confronting the several hundred screaming zulus who’re stomping through their streets at midnight screeching “No Justice!

    Basil Duke to ozzymandus

    In reality, Ferguson has some extremely nice neighborhoods - hundred-plus year-old houses that are very well maintained. A small but extremely dedicated group of businessmen have worked for decades to establish and maintain a commercial base in the town, as well. Sadly, many of these businesses rest on W. Florissant Road. Ferguson is basically an island of civilization in a ghetto sea. It shares a border with Kinloch - an absolute basket case of a muni - and Berkeley, ditto (although not as bad as Kinloch). It seems highly unlikely that Ferguson will be able to recover from the domestic terrorism unleashed on its streets by the Brown shooting. The very same jackals who burned Quik Trip down are now threatening the corporation to rebuild... “or else!” Or else what? No mentally balanced company in the world would want to build in Ferguson.

    The terrorists are even running wild in the town’s open air vegetable market - scaring the hell out of housewives and threatening vendors. They’ll kill that off, too - per their plan.

    According to a farmer friend, it’s legitimate. He hired a water witch to locate water for a new house (on ground in the country, that the water witch was unfamiliar with), and the guy was successful. He used two metal divining rods, bent at right angles at their tips - and held one in each hand, with his arms stretched out straight in front of him. When the right angles turned to face each other (it took a bit of walking), he turned to my friend, and said, “The aquifer (spelling?) is directly below us. I don’t how deep it is, but it’s down there.” And it was.

Acknowledging that ‘change,’ however, does not mean I support the Kyoto Treaty or any other leftwing effort to deliberately cut our economy’s hamstrings for the sake of “our children’s future.” More empty prattle from Obammy: a catch phrase that means absolutely nothing except to his true believers.

Any one can sue anybody for anything, just as I could take out a restraining order against my neighbor for absolutely no reason other than the fact that I’m a sociopathic jerk.

    This particular incident occurred before the advent of the web, but I did a “small town” number on the SOB: wrote a letter to the editor of my hometown newspaper (which was duly published) and named him - after describing the incident and his intrusive, fascist behavior. Word got around quite quickly. The incident itself unfolded like this: Six or seven of us were sitting on camp chairs around the morning fire. To reach us, one would have to open a heavy, iron farm gate and then drive back a mile on a dirt road through timber and a big cornfield. This jackboot did just that, and pulled up to our site, got out of his kampfwagon and started questioning us as though we were criminals: What were we doing there, did we have permission to be there (the owner was seated beside me), did we have any firearms with us, etc. I asked him in a very cold, hostile tone if we needed the state’s permission to camp on our own ground, and then told him that if he wasn’t going to arrest us for camping on private property, to leave immediately. (My friend, the landowner, is far too passive, so I did all the talking.) Ranger Jerkwad and I exchanged a few more terse words, and he left. But he had his hand on his holstered pistol the entire time he was there, trespassing and harassing free born Americans enjoying a fire on their own land.

    In Illinois, the king’s men can come and go when and where they please. Conservation officers can forcibly enter and search your home without a warrant if they have “reasonable “ suspicion that you’ve got illegally taken game inside. They can open your freezer and empty its contents on your floor in their hunt for poached squirrels. They can come onto your privately owned timber any time they please and harass you and your friends for sitting around a campfire at eight in the morning. (I know, because it’s happened to me.) Most of these ‘public servants” are on the wrong side of history, and will be on the wrong side of the line when things go really south. Bear in mind, Illinois’ FOID card requirement (Firearms Owners Identification) gives it the power to (A) deny you your Second Amendment rights and (B) establishes a handy list of gun owners’ addresses. In many, many ways, Illinois IS the blue model for the rest of the nation.

    Mine actually blew up. Well, more like a slow leak. During the day, I began to feel nauseous, and then, that night, I began to vomit as violently as I’ve ever vomited before or since. By morning, a subtle band of pain around my mid-section gradually worsened until I couldn’t move. Had to roll off the sofa and crawl to the phone to dial 911. Bad stuff. Lucky to be alive. Also developed a staph infection from the removal operation that also nearly killed me.

    A 55-gallon drum can easily be converted into a woodburning stove. We had one in our log cabin, and it kept our uninsulated box of logs quite toasty, even in the nastiest of central Illinois winters.

    That’s exactly right. They’re trying to condition us - and themselves - for this sort of thing on a large scale basis. Any sort of resistance to “the state” will be met with immediate and lethal force. No knock raids for suspected doobie possession and unpaid college loans, drone surveillance, email and phone monitoring, the shooting on sight of children carrying toy guns, etc. and et al are part of the program, too.

    My best friend from childhood lives on a farm in central Illinois. It costs him, at $5 a gallon, $4,000 to fill up his propane tank. A tank lasts him a month. Best friend from childhood is now looking to move into town.

    ‘Complete Streets’ is the name for this particular toxin here in St. Louis. Bike nuts - who comprise less than one percent of regular road users but who pretend their numbers are legion - insist that regional transportation agencies do exactly what unleashed the Spaniards’ rage: ‘road diets.’ In other words, four lane roads - with two driving lanes in each direction - are winnowed to one driving lane in each direction, and a ‘bikes only’ lane striped for each of the other two. Thus, half the road is reserved for the seven or eight bike riders who cycle on a daily basis. And thousands of motorists are left to idle and curse. But it’s ‘green” and “progressive,” so it’s all good. And if you object, you’re a hater, or, even worse, a watcher of “Faux News.” The goal, of course, is to make driving a motor vehicle such a pain in the butt that fewer and fewer people will choose to do so. And with the removal of the car, so goes the masses’ ability to ‘go’ - to get the heck away from the hellhole ghettos that the leftwing wants to herd us into under the guise of “sustainable neighborhoods.’

    By the rationale of this particular ruling, would not the owner of a soul food restaurant be legally obligated to cater a wedding of two klan members? Or a Jewish deli owner the wedding of a pair of neo Nazis?
