BLACK LIVES MATTER -- DOWN FOR THE REVOLUTION WITH A MILLION DOLLAR HOME

Rural, mostly-white Topanga Canyon in California is the last place I would expect one of the trained Marxist co-founders of the radical violent communist front group Black Lives Matter would buy a $1.4 million house through a “corporate entity” …

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Lands Topanga Canyon Compound

cullors

Buyer: Patrisse Khan-Cullors

Location: Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, Calif.

Price:  $1.4 million

Year::2003

Specs:  (approx.) 2,400 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus 1-bed/1-bath guesthouse

Lot Size:  .27 acres

A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

[OCS: Not only is this area somewhat isolated, but it is also located in an area of extreme fire danger, especially in extremely dry brushy adjacent areas.  Ironic to locate in a known fire danger area when the rest of the nation is plagued by her Black Lives Matter activists/agitators with their radical tendencies to riot, loot, and burn other people’s property.

Seeing that she graduated from UCLA (and the University of Second Choice), one cannot help but remark that the University of California (Berkeley, and Los Angeles) have justifiable reputations for training “elite” radicals.]

Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. Since then, the largely decentralized movement has been at the influential forefront on issues of police brutality and racially motivated violence against Black people, particularly in the wake of George Floyd’s killing last summer that sparked massive protests across the United States and around the globe. Kahn-Cullors’ published “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” in 2018.

[OCS: Let us not forget that the entire Trayvon Martin affair was created by the mainstream media who thought George Zimmerman was “white” when he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Martin, a thief, and a thug initiated an attack on Zimmerman. Another example of the media creating their own firestorm to drive their progressive socialist democrat narrative and profits. And, it appears to be repeating in the Derek Chauvin trial concerning the death of George Floyd another drug-addled thug.]

A winding 15 minute drive from The Commons at Calabasas and a slightly longer and somewhat less serpentine drive from Malibu’s Getty Villa, the pint-sized compound spans about one-quarter of an acre. The property’s not-quite 2,400 square feet is divided between the a three-bedroom and two-bath main house and a separate one-bed/one-bath apartment capable of hosting guests long term with a private entry and a living room with kitchenette.

Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.

The two guest bedrooms and hall bathroom are fairly ordinary, as is the simple and up-to-date though not especially high-end kitchen, while the primary bedroom offers a vaulted and wood-clad ceiling plus a small sitting area with glass sliders to the backyard.

An un-landscaped dust bowl with little charm besides the natural beauty of the trees and rugged mountains that envelope the property, the backyard offers little more than a covered patio for alfresco dining, a small deck and a tiny freestanding cabin best suited as a home office, meditation retreat or art studio.

Not what I would expect from a communist radical down with the revolution.  It is not exactly an enclave of blacks like South Central, Baldwin Hills, or other “communities of color.” But, then again, Topanga has always been accepting of hippies and oddballs who want to be left alone.

Bottom line…

I guess that even a radical communist needs a place of refuge from time to time – when they are not encouraging others to destroy America from within. Funny, the very system that allows her to buy a nice property is the one she seeks to destroy.

We are so screwed.

SIMPLE: NOT REALLY

CHURCHILL

Perhaps one of the greatest leaders/statesmen to live is Winston Churchill who famously observed …

"All great things are simple, and can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, hope." 

Likewise, it appears that these simple concepts have their opposites…

freedom – slavery

justice – injustice

honour – dishonor

duty – unheeding

mercy – cruelty

hope --  despair

Choose one…

Now, ask yourself, which political party seems to ignore freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, and hope as they ignore freedom as they attempt to enslave us with taxes and restrictions on our freedoms, attempt to panic us into accepting their political agenda, create divisions between Americans with their identity politics, subvert justice with a tiered system that favors the politically-connected, and generally ignore all positive precepts of humanity?

I am not saying that the GOP is without its faults, primarily cowardice, fecklessness, and unwillingness to fight for American values. They may occasionally talk about these values, but they are ineffective and fail to use the instrumentalities of power when it is in their hands. By their words and deeds, they appear ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

What is needed is principled leadership…

No, not establishment types like Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader in the United States House of Representatives since 2019. Not establishment types like Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader in the United States Senate since 2021. Certainly not the chameleons like Lindsey Graham who jumps across the aisle to advance the progressive socialist democrat agenda much like his mentor, the late Senator John McCain.

Who then can lead the charge in 2022?

Folks, it is 578 days from today to the 2022 mid-term election on November 8, 2022. Less if you consider the bruising primaries and the early voting days in the mid-term election.

I don’t see a GOP platform.

I don’t see specific ready-to-go programs that will counteract, repeal, and replace Democrat socialism.

I certainly don’t see a grassroots organization.

I do not see pushback against the mainstream media, court challenges, and coordinated messaging.

I don’t see the vetting necessary to keep candidates safe from opposition research and outright lies.

I don’t see Special Counsel John Durham’s report. Why does attorney Marc Elias still have his law license?

I do see a self-proclaimed leader in former President Donald Trump who claims he is the de facto head of the GOP. Unfortunately, lazy as ever, surrounded by dodgy people, and spending significant time fighting various lawsuits.

I do see the Romney-Bush-Rove establishment team working behind the scenes to spoil the election if they cannot elect one of their own. I also see the GOP supporting earmarks by simply rebranding them as “community project funding”— outrageous spending be damned. 

I do see that we are screwed.

ICYMI: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IMPLEMENTS CREEPING FASCISM

creeping-socialism

It appears that the Biden-Harris Administration is avoiding the protections afforded to U.S. citizens by the Constitution by using corporations to implement policies that are prohibited or are politically distasteful, and that would create significant public pushback.

For students of history, the government’s covert/overt control or coercion of private organizations is fascism, somewhat short of socialism, where the government owns and controls the means of production in the name of the people, where oligarchs that support the government do well, and the others disappear.

Thus, we find ourselves faced with creeping fascism as we approach China’s State Capitalism model, where the state engages in public/private corporate activities which benefit the state but where the state does not claim ownership of the means of production. Many believe this is a necessary step in transitioning to socialism or communism.

An example of corporatists selling out the United States…

Consider Apple, where the highly-paid and wealthy executives want to do significant business in the expanding markets of China and benefit from the low costs of labor, including forced slave labor under inhumane conditions, to fabricate its products. Not only will Apple refrain from loudly criticizing China’s human rights violations, especially in Asia, but they may implement certain product features which are beneficial to the Chinese Communist Party. Features that give rise to real-time location and activity tracking of the type that would be prohibited to the U.S. government under the U.S. Constitution. Tracking that the China-friendly, some say bought and paid for, Biden-Harris Administration might use to track their opposition on a path to securing perpetual power. Or Apple will restrict a free-speech app (Parler) from its store while allowing censored state-friendly sites free access. Or IBM, which missed by the personal computer and internet revolutions and is a major vendor of governments and large corporations.

Improving the user’s experience or something more nefarious?

There is little doubt in my mind that the progressive socialist democrats want enhanced surveillance capabilities and a way to limit a citizen’s freedom and especially mobility.  Can you think of any reason for short-range electric vehicles that operate in battery-degrading extreme temperatures or force the user to log in to receive power at every step of a long journey?

Consider the development and implementation of a private tracking system, one whose data can be freely aggregated with other commercial databases and sold to the government? Here is New York’s concept. Remember, New York State is run by a socialist Governor and the City of New York by an out-and-out Communist Mayor.

ny-york

Notice the use of the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of freedom, in the background.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the launch of Excelsior Pass — a free, voluntary platform developed in partnership with IBM, which utilizes proven, secure technology to confirm an individual's recent negative PCR or antigen test result or proof of vaccination to help fast-track the reopening of businesses and event venues in accordance with New York State Department of Health guidelines.

[OCS: Considering progressives believe the poor and people of color are too stupid or lazy to obtain a photo-id to vote, how are these individuals going to get smartphones and printed passes to enjoy other activities?]

Similar to a mobile airline boarding pass, individuals will be able to either print out their pass or store it on their smartphones using the Excelsior Pass Wallet app. Each Pass will
have a secure QR code, which participating businesses and venues can scan using a companion app to verify proof of COVID-19 negative test results or proof of vaccination.

An individual's data is kept secure and confidential at all times.

[OCS: Considering the recent breaches of government, corporate, and healthcare systems, can you believe this bullpucky? Remember those super-secret HIV/AIDS list that leaked?]

As part of this initial launch, participating New Yorkers may choose to use Excelsior Pass to verify their COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results as needed to gain entry to major stadiums and arenas, wedding receptions, or catered and other events above the social gathering limit.

[OCS: Social gathering limits are a direct violation of the Constitution’s First Amendment, doubly so for religious services. This is Hobson’s “take it or leave it choice: your "free" choice to obey instructions or forfeit your participation in desirable events.]

Interested New Yorkers can opt in to use Excelsior Pass and learn more here ; interested
businesses can opt in and learn more here . Major venues have already announced they will begin utilizing this technology in the coming weeks, including Madison Square Garden in New York City beginning next week and the Times Union Center in Albany. Beginning April 2, Excelsior Pass will expand to smaller arts, entertainment and event venues.

[OCS: Big Brother is watching.]

Universal Airline app…

IATA Travel Pass for Travelers

The IATA [International Air Transport Association] Travel Pass is a mobile application under development allowing travelers to store and manage certifications for COVID-19 tests or vaccines. The app should be available in iOS and Android stores by March 2021.

The information provided through the IATA Travel Pass can be used by governments requiring testing or vaccination proofs as a condition of international travel during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. A critical aspect is the fact that the information supplied is verified. It is a secure means to manage health requirements, much more efficient than paper processes.

With this app, IATA also aims to provide governments with the confidence to reopen borders without imposing quarantines on incoming travelers.

How the IATA Travel Pass works

The IATA Travel Pass will help people to travel at ease while meeting any government requirements for COVID-19 tests or vaccines. It will encompass:

  • Global registry of health requirements – to find accurate information on travel, testing and vaccine requirements for journeys 
  • Global registry of testing/vaccination centers – to identify testing centers and labs at departure location which meet the standards for testing and vaccination requirements of the destination
  • Lab app – to locate authorized labs and test centers to securely share test and vaccination certificates
  • Digital passport module - to enable passengers to create a ‘digital passport’, receive test and vaccination certificates and verify that they are sufficient for their itinerary, and share testing or vaccination certificates with airlines and authorities to facilitate travel. This app can also be used by travelers to manage travel documentation digitally and seamlessly throughout their journey, improving the travel experience.
  • Governments decide the requirements to travel; airlines and passengers need to comply - Traditionally there have been visa and vaccination requirements in many countries. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic governments have imposed additional restrictions: quarantine measures, testing requirements and eventually vaccination requirements. IATA Travel Pass is a tool for travelers but communicates with governments,  airlines, and test centers/vaccination providers to get verified information to those who need it in a safe and secure manner.

<Source>

Consider the creation of a master travel itinerary and check-in points for all other activities. Bye-Bye Freedom.

Bottom line…

Rahm Emanuel should be Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for describing the method by which his country was compromised and lost to the sands of time.

GLOBAL WARMING UPDATE: MEH!

EGW

The only benefits I can find from the Chinese Communist Party virus and the resulting global pandemic are a massive breaking of normal and customary habits, both personal and professional, as we responded to government-forced limitations, restrictions, and power-grabs; and the near absence of those caterwauling about the planetary emergency of global warming.

Considering that the original terrestrial temperature datasets have been lost through improper archiving or corrupted by endless statistical adjustments and homogenization efforts to give weight to an as-yet unproven hypothesis of man-made global warming, we turn to the most incorruptible data that exists, satellite data which actually is more accurate, more global, and more incorruptible than the terrestrial data. Unfortunately, the data only extends from 1979.

One degree C., in seventy years…

University of Alabama, Huntsville Global Temperature Update for March 2021
Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for March, 2021 was -0.01 deg. C, down substantially from the February, 2021 value of +0.20 deg. C.

UAH-DATA

REMINDER: We have changed the 30-year averaging period from which we compute anomalies to 1991-2020, from the old period 1981-2010. This change does not affect the temperature trends.

Right on time, the maximum impact from the current La Nina is finally being felt on global tropospheric temperatures. The global average oceanic tropospheric temperature anomaly is -0.07 deg. C, the lowest since November 2013. The tropical (20N-20S) departure from average (-0.29 deg. C) is the coolest since June of 2012. Australia is the coolest (-0.79 deg. C) since August 2014.

The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.14 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.18 C/decade over global-averaged land).

[OCS: If it wasn’t for the billions of government dollars washing through institutions, projects, and principal investigators and the use of a climate-augmented scenario to drive a globalist socialist agenda, do you think anyone would jump up-and-down screaming that “We the People” had only  9 – 12 years to avert a planetary catastrophe – when the “scientific data” indicates that the Earth’s average temperature (using the rate since 1979) would rise by one degree C, in 70 years. Well within the range of climate’s natural variability, including times prior to the industrial revolution. 

The full UAH Global Temperature Report can be found on Dr. Spencer’s blog]

The global and regional monthly anomalies for the various atmospheric layers we monitor should be available in the next few days at the following locations:

Still waiting…

(1)  For someone to develop a scientifically valid and verifiable method to determine the Earth’s optimal temperature given geography and among competing bio-diversity interests.

(2)  For someone to develop a scientifically valid and verifiable method to quantify the impact of the true drivers of global climate including the Sun’s energy output in all spectral bands, cosmic rays, the Earth’s position relative to the Sun, the Earth’s precessional and rotational dynamics, plate tectonics and vulcanology, the deep ocean currents, the internal dynamics of the Earth, and the greatest greenhouse gas of all” water vapor. None of which. I might add, can be altered by man on a global – or even a local scale.

(3)  For someone to develop a scientifically valid and verifiable method to measure man’s climate signal amid nature’s climate normal variability in a chaotic system with complex feedbacks.

(4)  For someone to develop a valid and verified non-parametric (no plug-in values) modeling system for computing the feedback of water vapor in the atmosphere in addition to all of the other variables.

(5)  For someone to tell me that, given the geological timescales involved in global climate, why man would not adapt to shifting environmental changes over the next thousand years. Certainly, by then we will have developed desalinization, food production, and clean, cheap, portable energy.

(6)  For some self-regulating body to sanction dishonest scientists, journals, and peer-reviewers and deal with funding-induced bias.

(7)  And, most importantly, how to approach and control the political and institutional corruption that is impeding progress in controlling harmful pollution and destroying America from within.

Bottom line…

Evaluating the gross temperature of the entire planet involves an inherent level of uncertainty that most assuredly exceeds the decimal point precision shown in most graphs. If you believe decimal point precision is anything more than the artifacts of arithmetical division in averaging numbers, you might well believe the bullpucky dished up by those with large dollar-value self-interests.

Conclusion: weather is variable and mostly unpredictable over long time periods. Climate is the net sum of the weather over longer time frames. Or in the case of most measurements, they are reported as a deviation from a mutually agreed upon baseline and known as anomalies.

We are so screwed.

CHAUVIN TRIAL: IS THE MEDIA CREATING A RIOT SCENARIO?

MN-RIOT

It appears that significant civic response issues may be developing in the Minnesota murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, charged in the in-custody death of George Floyd.

From what I see as an untrained non-legal professional, the defense adequately meets the prosecution's case-in-chief with a skillful cross-examination that contradicts the prosecution's theory of the case and continues to introduce significant doubt about the details of Chauvin's actions in the death of Floyd.

However, it appears that the media is conditioning the domestic battlefield in Minneapolis and elsewhere by selectively reporting mostly on the case being presented by the prosecution and interpreting the information in a biased manner that appears to make Chauvin guilty of the improper use of force.

One-sided coverage by the media?

Not being fully covered is the cross-examination, which negates a portion of the prosecution's presentation and introduces further doubt and inconsistencies into the case.

Thus the one-sided coverage is likely to produce a violent reaction from the crowd that may be pre-primed by professional activists and agitators to expect a conviction and nothing less than one of the murder charges. If Chauvin is acquitted or given a minimal sentence, these same malign forces could move a mob of protesters closer toward a major riot. A civil disturbance may be used as a cover for arsonists and looters -- while the police fail to take affirmative action.

Minneapolis Mayor Defends Stand-Down Order As Rioters Burn Police Precinct

Another night of rioting, looting and arson in Minneapolis and again Mayor Jacob Frey appeared before reporters completely clueless.

During an early morning press conference, Frey was grilled by reporters after multiple building in the city were set on-fire including a police precinct.

Frey told reporters “the symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life, of our officers, or the public. We could not risk serious injury to anyone and we will continue to patrol the 3rd precinct entirely, we will continue to do our jobs in that area, and you know, brick and mortar is not as important as life.”

A reporter pressed the mayor, asking him “what's the plan here? What are we doing? Here in the streets, a lot of businesses have been burned down, a lot of livelihoods have been hurt, we've seen very little police out there just in general, at the 3rd and throughout and I'm just wondering what's the plan and who's in charge in this city."  <Source>

Bottom line…

This media coverage issue is critical as any disturbance in Minneapolis is likely to be replicated elsewhere in Minnesota. Given the actions of violent radical activists and agitators such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter, it may quickly spread across the country.

While we will have to wait and see how the media covers the defense, it would be prudent to prepare for civil unrest and possibly curfews and other restrictions. Some areas may find that their local stores are closed, some having been burned, looted, or simply boarded-up.

I cannot even begin to imagine the pressure on the jury to convict Cauvin to prevent civil disorder.

Beyond the necessities, and knowing that law enforcement officers may not offer suitable protection before, during, or after an event, you may wish to develop your own use of force scenario if you or your family are threatened. You may wish to consider an arsonist an existential threat and shoot to kill if you have limited or blocked egress.

Be well, be safe, and be prepared.

JOE BIDEN: LIVING IN HIS OWN KINGDOM OF THE MIND

It is a sad day in America when a major political party knowingly nominates and promotes a mentally impaired individual to the United States Presidency. Even sadder still when some behind-the-scene advisor shoves a note in front of a cogitatively disabled senior citizen, and he mouths words he may not know to be untrue. But the greatest sadness of all comes from a hyper-politicized mainstream media that knowingly amplifies and endlessly repeats these lies to the American people.

Joe Biden on Georgia’s voting law reform…

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work.” — President Biden, in remarks at a news conference, March 25. 2021

The truth…

On Election Day in Georgia, polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and if you are in line by 7 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot. Nothing in the new law changes those rules. Being in a long line is not voter suppression. 

As for early voting, when offices are traditionally staffed during “normal” business hours, “Counties can have early voting open as long as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a minimum. In larger metropolitan counties, you might not notice a change. For most other counties, you will have an extra weekend day, and your weekday early voting hours will likely be longer.”

Few Georgians and even fewer Americans will read the newly passed legislation and attempt to understand its provisions compared to the original law or in the context of the laws of other states.

Chris Christie calls out Stacey Abrams for praising NJ law that allows less early voting than Georgia's

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Sunday called out Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams for praising a New Jersey in-person early voting law that provides fewer days of pre-Election Day in-person voting than a Georgia measure President Biden has compared to Jim Crow laws.

The New Jersey bill was signed last week by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, while the Georgia bill became law with the signature of Republican Gov. Brian Kemp on March 25.

"Stacey Abrams was in New Jersey, in my state, praising Phil Murphy this week for a voting law where New Jersey early voting is nine days — half of what Georgia’s is," Christie said during an appearance on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

"Yet she’s on TV in New Jersey — I saw it myself — saying that this is one of the greatest voting expansion bills we’ve ever seen," Christie said. < Source>

For those who do not know of Stacy Abrams, she is the radical partisan who believes she is the rightful Governor of Georgia and that the 2018 election was stolen by “voter suppression” in the black community. Ignoring, of course, one of the largest turnouts of black voters in Georgia’s history.

"I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said, according to NPR. "But to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin his hopes for election on suppression of the people's democratic right to vote has been truly appalling." [OCSNote: She has never conceded the Governor’s race.]

Still, nationally, the turnout in 2018 was higher than average by historical standards, FiveThirtyEight reported. In Georgia in 2018, "an estimated 55 percent of eligible voters exercised their right to vote, which is about 21 points higher than the state’s 1982-2014 average. That was the biggest change from the average of any state," FiveThirtyEight also reported.  <Source>

Bottom line…

Some know what they feel, reinforced by corrupt mainstream media and their peers' similarly uninformed opinions -- individuals who are unwilling to take the time to read, research, and understand the environment in which they live. Apathy, laziness, or the belief that their side is righteous and the other side is evil appears to be contributing factors.

You cannot reason with these people who are motivated by emotion and feel good about their peer group acceptance. Logic is the loser. It appears you can only reinforce the opinions of those of a like mind and speak to fools only when there are bystanders who might consider what you are saying. To do otherwise is to speak to a rock and attempt to change its position.

Don’t become a fool.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THE DAY...

I never thought that I would see the day when a patriotic American institution like Major League Baseball would turn toward partisan politics, let alone un-American politics promoting racism, Marxism,  and Communism…

Even worse, condemning legislation that promotes election integrity while supporting sponsors and vendors profiting from actual slavery and the suppression of human rights.

2021-04-03 19_38_46-Greenshot2021-04-03 19_39_34-Greenshot

Never forget: one, ALL lives matter; and two, black lives matter is a communist front organization founded by trained Marxist community organizers. Demand an audit of the organization to see where the large corporate donations have gone.

Bottom line…

It’s time for patriotic Americans to strike back.

If you are a patriotic fan, don’t attend games, don’t watch games on television or streaming services, don’t purchase merchandise.

If you are a patriotic citizen, demand the end to the League’s antitrust exemption and open the field to new competition. Demand that tax abatements and advantages be rescinded or heavily surcharged. Demand that public stadium agreements be renegotiated. Demand the end to using public money to support Major League Baseball and its activities. Ramp-up high school and collegiate sports.

Demand that Major League Baseball explains, in detail, how the Georgia election reforms suppress voter activity.

If you are a shareholder of a large public corporation, demand that donations to social justice programs be taken out of executive pay and bonuses rather than the shareholder’s pockets.

We are so screwed.
