The attempted coup crumbled

Now we're getting a better idea what really went on...


Odd choice of words,
 Alec Baldwin urges 'overthrow' of Trump and Republicans with voting

So, Mr. Baldwin, what if voting doesn't work, what if voters decide they want Trump and Republicans left in control?

Would you endorse overthrow by other means?

BTW, I've never heard of a politician being "overthrown" when he/she was voted out of office. It concerns me how readily the political left has adopted the language of coups and revolutions even in terms of everyday politics.

Sounds suspicious

Large scale gun thefts are sometimes trafficked to Mexico, or other black market hot spots. But how did the bandits know where the guns were, how did they get access with a U-Haul truck?
ATF: About 400 Guns stolen from UPS facility in Tennessee

Smacks of inside coordination.

Four hundred guns is a lot, but not exactly enough to equip an army. To hear law enforcement in borderline panic mode makes law enforcement seem cowardly and inept.

If there's credible information of an insurrection planned in connection with the theft, that might be different.

Update: Guns recovered. They were apparently on their way to Chicago.

The divide grows deeper, rule of law increasingly upstaged by emotion and mobs

"When Chuck Schumer states on CSPAN that "There is no presumption of innocence" then the Rule of Law and due process are both dead and he is inviting, provoking and in fact inciting civil war." -  Karl Denninger in a recent post.

Tactical omissions, perhaps

I've given the benefit of the doubt up until now. While not buying into Christine Blasey Ford's version of events, I've considered she may have confused fragments of memory, while not necessarily accurate, that she believes her remembrance (recovered or otherwise) to be the truth.

But the longer this drags on, the more skeptical I become.

I have begun to wonder if there may be tactical purpose to Ford not remembering the location or the date of the attack she alleges. By omitting such detail, Ford, the accuser denies Supreme Court nomninee Brett Kavanaugh potential alibi.

Should Ford cite a date not knowing Kavanaugh's calendar in '82, it might be determined Kavanaugh was away on a family vacation, or at a concert, or a family birthday celebration.

Longer this drags out, and the accuser's lawyers put crazed conditions (like the accused being told to tell his side only before the accusation is made), I grow exceedingly skeptical.

Late in the season sighting

We heard rustling among our muscadines Friday evening.

When we looked investigate, this fella came scampering out from among the vines, and made a dash for the woods.

We thought he'd get away before we got a phone camera ready, he'd already run cross the driveway when he gave a final look back, and we got a snippet of video. This image was lifted from that video.
