“Man with a knife!”

The call goes out over the police radio, “Man with a knife!” The adrenaline starts pumping. An officer races to the scene (not waiting for backup), pulls up in close proximity (putting himself in danger), leaps from the car (his point of safety), and shoots the mentally ill person 6 times in the chest with a .40 caliber handgun dead. “I had to!

Really? If a bear or cougar had wandered into town, they would have got the local Game Warden (without all the drama and shouting, “Get on the ground! On the ground now! Get on the ground!”), he would have calmly walked up about 30 yards away, put the rifle to his shoulder and shot the bear or cougar with a tranquilizer dart, and its Miller time. Nobody’s dead. Not a lot of shouting. And the bear or cougar lives to see another day.

This very ‘man with a knife’ scenario, which is repeated countless times over the years, just appeared yesterday in the Washington Times  . And of course it ended up with the mentally ill man dead. I argued on the Facebook page that there were non-lethal means to incapacitate a man with a knife, but of course no one wants to hear it. They just gear up the excuse machine as to why a country that can put a man on the moon can’t stop a man with a knife without killing him.

If that same cop had driven up to a bear or cougar and started blasting away he’d be in trouble. An animal like that is a protected species. But an unemployed mentally ill person (often black, often inner-city), its open season! Fire at will! The cops race to the scene and call ‘dibs’ because they know they’re going to get to kill someone. Police protocol doesn’t stand up under scrutiny. A bear or cougar is much faster than a man, much stronger than a man and their hides are tougher. All their excuses as to why a tranquilizer dart wouldn’t work on a man fall apart. Shouldn’t a man be as much an endangered species as a bear?

I went to Wikipedia to look for the range of a tranquilizer rifle. They wouldn’t tell me that. But they would tell me all the reasons you couldn’t do it. They were an excuse machine too as to why they can’t be used on humans. Its ridiculous. “Humans weigh different amounts, tranquilizers affect humans differently, it could take 2 to 3 seconds for the drug to take effect, you could give too much drug, you could give too little drug…” All a bunch of bullshit. Watch the videos on YouTube. A 2 count and the animal is down. They are shot at 30 to 40 yards, more than enough of a safety cushion.

In the picture below the perpetrator is bare chested with his hands at his sides. Hardly a charging beast with his knife hand raised! You know those black bumper racks on the front of cop cars? I’ve seen those purposely used to clip a fleeing suspect. Why not a man with a knife? Why do cops always act like it has to be one officer standing in the open with no cover 15 feet from the suspect? That’s asinine! They always come up with these wild scenarios about why this won’t work, or that won’t work, well then work in a pair so you have a backup! If one of the non-lethal means fail you always have someone standing by with a firearm.

Pretend for a moment that a human is worth as much as a bear or cougar. So what if you might overdose with a tranquilizer (what’s so tough about setting up dosage for 180 pound?), it gives the suspect a chance to live. What the sam hell do they think 3 – .40 S&W rounds to the chest are going to do? When cops come up with all these excuses why they have to kill (once again ignoring all the times Game Wardens do it), you start to wonder, do they realize they signed up to be cops? Not librarians? There might be some danger.

The video link I provided above shows a Game Warden, with his protective vest on, shooting a very solid rifle, not some ‘blow gun’, dispatching a bear, from a very safe distance, all without being a drama queen cop. Just like happens all around the country hundreds of times a year. When I was looking at all the school shootings and what teachers could be doing, it always came down to teachers would rather let kids die than shoot a killer dead.

I said okay… what are the non-lethal means of bringing a shooter down? It came down to 7 categories of non-lethal weapons: Sonic, optic, electric, projectile, shield, net gun and gas. There are several variations within each category. Many ways a  passivist group of teachers could still protect children. Specifically stun grenades, flashbangs, smoke, laser, taser, rubber bullets, beanbag rounds, steel ball gun, shields, mace, pepper spray, tear gas, body armor and a net launch gun. You could have so many things exploding, hitting and blinding a shooter he wouldn’t know what the hell was going on!

One of the most ridiculous and pathetic excuses of the cops is they have to blast away with a handgun. That’s one of the most ineffective ways to shoot a man. In each police vehicle is a shotgun and a rifle. These are much better weapons and they give you a non-lethal alternative. A shotgun with buckshot makes it child’s play to take a suspect off his feet. A rifle makes it simple to shoot a man in the leg or knee. And from a greater distance. There’s nothing that says you have to drive up within 15 feet of a suspect and jump out of the car.

A rifle or shotgun allows you to stand off 35 yards, easy. A man can’t close that distance quickly. Its just insane the scenarios these excuse makers come up with. They cannot see beyond their self-imposed paradigm. They ignore that police in the UK had to develop these techniques as most cops there still do not carry firearms. And they ignore what Game Wardens do this all the time with a much more dangerous animal than a human. And I have to reiterate, a sane man does not advance on a cop holding a knife. A mentally ill person does.

[I clean forgot to mention the other point. Our soldiers overseas have quite restrictive rules of engagement as to how they must proceed before firing their weapons at a foreign national. It used to be they had to be receiving fire before they could shoot back. That was changed when it was noted a lot of times it was just yahoos shooting their guns in the air. It then became they had to be receiving “credible” fire. Our cops, like in Toledo just drove up and blasted away at a 12 year old holding a toy gun. They weren’t receiving fire. They weren’t receiving credible fire. They just drove up and murdered a 12 year old holding a toy gun. And got away with it.]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Funny, a tranquilizer worked just fine for this 600 pound polar bear. Quick too. And he’s one hell of a lot stronger, faster and has a tougher hide than a man.

Funny, a tranquilizer worked just fine for this 4,000 pound elephant. Quick too. And he’s one hell of a lot stronger, faster and has a tougher hide than a man. Its just ridiculous. Every day around the globe a cougar, a bear, a polar bear, a lion, a tiger or an elephant wanders in somewhere he isn’t supposed to, and some man with a rifle tranquilizes him safely and the animal is transported to a safe place. Why can’t we do that with a human? Instead cops act like its an ‘either or’, when in reality there’s no reason it can’t be a ‘both’.

Can it be done?

Michigan Representative Justin Amash, in a self-defeating style typical of Republicans, called for President Trump’s impeachment on Monday. Within hours, Michigan State Representative Jim Lower announced he would challenge Amash in the primary for the House seat. The big question is, are Republican voters in Michigan’s 3rd District smart enough to throw the bum out?

We are talking about a party that put up John McCain and Mitt Romney for president. Amash needs to be got rid of, he can be rid of, but will the voters get rid of him? They keep Susan Collins around for decades…. so who knows. And House races aren’t sexy. But they are the most vital. Good luck James!

Yeah the modern conservative thinks activism is pissing and moaning on social media. Au contraire. In order to actually make activism work, you have to make the phone call, mail the postcard and send the check. Justin Amash isn’t going to defeat himself, he’s going to have to be thrown out on his ass. Skidding across the parking lot.

They broke their oath

After every election Senator Grassley, Senator Ernst and Representative King put their hand on a bible and swear an oath to the Constitution. And the very next day they break that oath. Article 4 Section IV of that Constitution requires them to protect the States from foreign invasions. All they care about is keeping the border open for Big Ag. As long as they bring home the welfare for Iowa’s farmers, they’ll get reelected. Is that sick or what? The cost of illegal immigration to the states is astronomical. The last number I saw floated for the nation is $134 billion dollars a year. Every year. Just $20 billion would build a wall to shut that down. – Jim Roach

Dive! Dive! Dive!


Ann Coulter

Scary, that’s what the hell she is. I saw a picture of the Central American Mexicans flooding into our country and it reminded me of a quote of hers: “Our new country is going to be great!” She has been known to employ 5 megaton sarcasm from time to time, so I wouldn’t take that sentiment at face value. But perhaps what is most disturbing, is who she is now dating . So much for being the world’s most attractive woman. – Jim Roach

Campus full of cowards


Nick Fuentes

I happened to catch a bizarre little show on KASI 1430 this morning called ‘Iowa State Update‘. The host and an Iowa State Daily reporter (spelling) Devon Leese had their knickers in a bunch about a recent speaker at the ISU campus named Nick Fuentes. Trying to find out who Nick Fuentes was, all I was able to find after a search online were characterizations of his speech, not his speech. That’s the trouble with liberals, they’re all about shutting people up. And not telling you what he said, but telling you what they think he said. Men going to college nowadays have to check their balls at the gate.

I saw a picture in the Daily of these protestors doing all they could to prevent the thoughts of this 21 year old kid from being expressed. Think about that.  They are like self-appointed thought police. This 21 year old kid’s thoughts are so dangerous their entire world view collapses if this kid is allowed to speak. My God what a pathetic generation. Back in my day if someone was full of crap you ignored them. Today the intrusion of an impure thought upon our college student sends him or her into an apoplectic rage! (So much for live and let live.)

They were so afraid of his words! The whole gist of the interview  was trying to find out who had the audacity to bring him to ISU?? Failing to mention that ISU’s resident leftist mob got Milo cancelled 3 years ago. Leftists are afraid of words! I heard Fuentes called white nationalist, white supremist, alt-right, far right, on and on and on. This current crop of cream puffs are the biggest bunch of pussies I’ve ever seen! Just the hat Fuentes is wearing in the picture above is enough to send these commie libs into spasms of SJW rage!

(Think about that, the words ‘Make America Great Again’ send them into paroxysms of violence. People are accosted in the classroom, the bus, the Post Office, the street, a bar, anyplace you can imagine for wearing this red hat with white letters.  Once again, they will tell you what the hat says in their minds, not what it actually says. Words, thoughts, hats, its nuts.)

With the censorship being practiced on social media by Facebook and Twitter, topped off with college campuses having to have designated “free speech” zones, it does not look good for the First Amendment in America.

The Iowa State Daily, like all newspapers*, is just an extension of the Democrat Party. 

Jim Roach

*Forgive me I can think of only 2 papers that aren’t ‘balls-to-the-walls’ Leftists. The Washington Times and The Wall Street Journal. The WSJ is just a Republican establishment rag. Don’t ever confuse Republican with conservative.

Its more than pissing and moaning on social media

Today I thought I’d waste some time and put up the mailing addresses I’ve accumulated over the years. Being a grassroots activist my whole life I’ve picked up a thing or two. An example of this is how the offices of Congressional Districts calculate voter feedback. An email might represent the thoughts of 5 other people. A phone call 25. A letter 100. A lot of people have strange ideas on what ‘activism’ is. Some people seem to think they are making a difference by listening to talk radio. Yeah? Or by being informed by watching the news channel or reading the local paper. I suppose it beats being dumber than a doorknob. Or by pissing and moaning for hours on Twitter or Facebook. Those are time wasters, not productive pursuits. Another waste of time (usually) is amateur blogging.

What’s really amazing is the number of people who have never written a letter to the editor. Never gone through a parking lot putting fliers under windshield wipers. Never had a cable access TV show. Never gone door to door for a candidate or cause. Never stood outside an event handing out fliers to people coming in. Never called their senator’s or representative’s office. Never written a letter to a TV or radio station. Never marched in a parade. Never made phone calls for a candidate. Never given money to a candidate. Never called up a radio show. Never been a blogger for 13 years. And perhaps most amazing, is that the people who have never done any of these things, is going to tell the guy who has done all of these things what politics is all about.

So even though its a complete waste of time to make all these addresses available, its what activists do. We can’t help it. Activists in 2008 in one of the rare grassroots efforts for conservatives, formed the Tea Party. The first thing establishment types like that scumbag ISU Political Science Professor Steffen Schmidt did was to derisively call them “Tea Baggers“. The establishment  worked overtime to marginalize these people. The laugh was on them. 8 years later these heroes formed the core that made Donald Trump president! So F-You Schmidt! In your face you establishment pukes. We took the apple cart and turned it upside down. Then we stuck the pieces up your ass.

Aunty Fah gets stuffed

The big guy might be Allen Puckett, former MMA Fighter turned street preacher. This is said to have taken place in Portland, Oregon. Home of the commie lib. I’m not even sure Squirrel Bait knew he could have been folded up like a pretzel by the big guy and snapped. They ain’t real smart. – Jim Roach

Why not let Earl May be Earl May?

Here in Ames springtime comes and everyone turns into a garden supply store. Grocery stores, hardware stores, gas stations…. I wouldn’t want to be an actual lawn and garden store trying to stay alive with everybody skimming on you. I needed some weed and feed, the guy at Earl May knew exactly what I needed (for clover and dandelions), took me right to it. Boom! Done. Try getting that expert help at a hardware store, or the grocery store, good luck.

You’ll hear on the radio a lot of “buy local” campaigns because brick and mortar is getting killed by Amazon. Malls dry up and blow away. Mainstreet never thought of that 50 years ago when they were stocking their shelves with cheap Chinese crap. They could have cared less about American made goods. Now all of a sudden were supposed to care about them? They don’t give a damn about anybody else. Buy local? Mainstreet didn’t, they bought Chinese.

Grocery stores selling gas, department stores selling groceries, discount stores undercutting optometrists, on and on… everybody’s skimming. It would be like if every February 13 all the stores stocked up on roses to undercut the florist. Florists live for Valentines, Mothers Day and such. Grocery stores nowadays are as much liquor stores as anything else, all the attention to beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets. They end up doing a crappy job at actually selling groceries! I have 3 products its impossible to find anymore because they devote so much shelf space to everything but groceries!

Now all of a sudden we’re supposed to fret about buying local? You should a worried about buying American, you should a worried about doing what you do well, instead of skimming the cream.

[In the old days, pre-1980, there sometimes existed a phenomenon known as “business ethics” (I know that sounds like an oxymoron). Not all the time, not everywhere, but sometimes in places like Iowa, where the grass is greener and the people are keener too! The sole-proprietor  would look at the guy trying to make a living down the street and think, “Hmm, rather then needlessly piss him off, I think I’ll not do that!” Iowa character was foreign to metropolitan areas, and is also gone from Iowa now. You could see it in like 2 competing shoe stores on main street. 1 store would carry A, B & C brands of shoes, the other store would carry D, E & F brands. They would still compete with better service or bigger sales, but the would keep it clean. Not so today.]

Why are Americans so stupid?

I started to make it, “Why are people so stupid?”, but I realized I don’t give a damn about other countries. The only reason I care what’s happening here is that we are being drug down by society’s anchors, those people incapable of functioning at an autonomous level. For some reason we give these incompetents the right to vote. Its ridiculous their vote should count as much as mine. All you have to do is look at the ranks of employed politicians to see what I mean. Once you get past D. Trump, Jim Jordan, Louis Gohmert and Devin Nunes, I really can’t think of a politician worth his paycheck. Voters put these derelicts there, every last one of them.

What kind of idiot does that? I can honestly say I never voted for the 3 idiots representing me at the Federal level (or State for that matter). One big institution that keeps people stupid of course is government education. That’s a big part, but there are people like me that grow out of it. We don’t all stay stupid. But there is a persistent majority that does. Roughly half the people vote, and of that half, all vote stupid. Except for that one time we elected Donald Trump. Danged if I’ll ever understand that. But the rest of the time you get the Congress like the one we have now. Repulsive, cowardly and corrupt.

Take the border as one example. We are being overrun and replaced by Latin Americans. And you ain’t gonna Make America Great Again with Latin Americans. Ain’t gonna happen. Not to mention a report today from the Daily Caller has a Jordanian being arrested in San Antonio for smuggling in Yemenis (muslims). So its not just undocumented welfare recipients flowing into the country but terrorists as well. Another hotspot right now (also to the south) is Venezuela. Speaking Spanish, they of course are a society on the brink.

They of course are of zero importance to us, but it is a coin flip as to whether we get invovlved or not. The American taxpayer to pay and the American soldier to die. How long we been doing that, huh? I was listening to Kim Strassel give a talk on YouTube yesterday, “Can the Swamp be Drained?” The answer was no, it can’t. But the amazing part wasn’t that, but how blatant the corruption is, and how purposely oblivious Americans are. Thomas Jefferson of course having warned us that freedom requires an active and informed electorate. That counts us out.

Subjugation

The 1984 film ‘Terminator‘ introduced us to the T-800 cyborg who was part of an AI network controlling humans through Skynet. The video above introduces you to just the non-classified urban weapons our government is deploying against us. They won’t use the military on the border to stop a foreign invasion, but they will use it to control citizens. It figures. But I digress. The narrator goes through the weapon systems you see on the railcars there. Laser weapons, sound weapons, weapons that detect the electromagnetic patterns of your heart to target and kill you.

Imagine the weapons they have in store for us that are classified? 

Leroy with his trusty Winchester .30-.30 might have a tough time resisting the government that he funded to enslave him. Our government grabbed control of primary education for a reason, to keep everyone stupid. Otherwise in a functioning educational environment kids would learn that our Founders never intended the government to be a militaristic empire that we have become. They didn’t intend the taxpayer to have the burden of funding the World’s Policeman. To have goddamn 20 year wars in Afghanistan.

Nope, George Washington himself warned against “foreign entanglements”. Dwight Eisenhower warned against the “military-industrial complex”. John Fitzgerald Kennedy warned against a “shadow government“. But between a corporate media that had long ago been absorbed and a government run education system that said the government could do no wrong, these warnings fell on deaf ears. The end of freedom may not be now, but  you can see it from here.

The Terminator movie takes place in 2029. Just 10 years from now.
