Trump steps in to restore order.

I’ve been off line for a time due to illness which thankfully I’m recovering from. There seems to have been a lot going on in that break in service which has necessitated some speed reading and article scanning to catch up with events, but there is one advantage to such an exercise – you see interesting developments evolving over that time period. There were many trends that practically leap out of the screen at me.

The biggest one was the complete breakdown in law and order in certain cities and states run by the Democrat party via state governors and city mayors. If you follow the fake news outlets, which I’m careful to do, they are of course doing their usual hype up the hysteria, getting behind the assorted variety of rioters which consist in the main of criminal elements, far-left agitators trying to force socialism on America, Antifa and of course the BLM terrorists, who magically reappear just before any presidential election to get the black voter good and outraged and then go back to sleep until the next election.

The truth is that the riots are happening, but not in as many cities and to the extent that the fake news media are trying to manufacture as a perception in the heads of the gullible. These uncontrolled riots are a direct product of police officers being directed to stand down by local politicians and let them happen. Also, lunatic proposals to defund the police, which actually means to abolish them. NY city have been forced to put a cap on the number of police officers allowed to take early retirement because they’re leaving in droves, but that won’t prevent the younger ones just quitting. If politicians prevent you enforcing the law and you’re being assaulted and walking around with a target on your back with no prospect of offenders being punished, it’s a pointless job, a no-brainer. It’s simply not worth the risk.

The cherry on top of the evolving chaos is a significant element within the judiciary have become highly politicised, which is exacerbating the situation. In places like NY City, if you’re arrested for committing a crime, even assaulting a policeman, you get zero bail and are out back on the streets the next day to continue with your merry pastime of rioting and looting.

When one of these riots spilled onto their home property, a coupled in St. Louis telephoned the police who said they wouldn’t come to their aid. In response the fetched their guns and prepared to defend themselves and their property. The end result was the police coming the next day to confiscate their guns, which had not been fired because they weren’t loaded anyway, and it looks like they’re slated to be prosecuted on some phony charge by the local judiciary who mandated a hands off approach to the rioters in the first place. The prosecutor suppressing their second amendment rights had 70% of her campaign funds donated by George Soros who has an interesting Nazi past and well motivated to destroy America. If that isn’t buying a judiciary, tell me what is.

Add up the frightening effect that particular incident has had on the average American. Protecting your life and property from violent rioters trespassing on your home property, the police refusing to help, getting stripped of your legally owned guns and then getting prosecuted for nothing more than a display of force to protect yourself. The second amendment no longer applies to ordinary law-abiding people.

Basically, the Rule of Law has been totally subverted by politicians and a bought and paid for lower circuit judiciary. It simply doesn’t exist in some towns and states. One of two things will inevitably occur – vigilante law or the federal government will have to step in to restore order. If the breakdown in law is allowed to continue, the appearance of roving bands of local vigilantes to protect themselves is inevitable. If the police are not allowed to protect you and the judiciary continue to support the rioters, albeit covertly but sometimes overtly, the ordinary person will go back to basics and acknowledge it’s up to them to protect themselves by force of arms, because nobody else will.

Trump as usual has played the long game. Let it get totally out of hand and after local powers have been seen by all America plainly doing nothing at all but actively encouraging it, be seen to step in as the strong president and crush it. Places like Portland Oregon have suffered over 60 continuous days and nights of rioting with injury, death and colossal damage to businesses being looted.

Pretty soon, what businesses are left will relocate to safer cities, and when they go, the blue and white collar workers will follow in search of the employment that can no longer be found in Portland. Ordinary people there have had enough. If city authorities continue to encourage and allow this environment of complete lawlessness and violence, then within a decade or less it’s going to look like Detroit, a crumbling city abandoned by 90% of its population, a ghost town.

Make no mistake, cities can die and completely disappear off the map within a few decades for a variety of reasons. Baltimore, Chicago and Seattle amongst others are on that same road to Detroit. People are fleeing lawless cities just as they did New York city in what used to be called the bad old days. Newsflash NYC, those bad old days are making a big comeback courtesy of a murderously incompetent state governor and a Lala Land city mayor.

The first duty of an American president is to protect his country and its citizens. He’s making his move and it’s hardball. The governor of Minnesota recently requested federal money to repair all the damage done by the rioting and got a flat refusal. The message was clear – you created the problem for your own political ends, so I’m not giving you a red cent. Let your own law enforcement off the leash to do their job. That was a warning shot which was ignored.

Addressing the president’s duty to protect ordinary citizens, he’s sent into Portland various federal law enforcement agencies to make real arrests and pacify an out of control but relatively small element of the population who’re attacking federal buildings, and they’re being charged with federal crimes, so they won’t be getting the local free passes from the rioter friendly judiciary they previously enjoyed.

Basically, in the absence of local politicians choosing not to address the mounting chaos, the federal government is simply bypassing them, and conducting a wave of arrests. There will no doubt be a snowstorm of lawfare suits being filed to prevent this, and though that might slow him down, it won’t stop him.

After all, he already has control of the Supreme Court and when Ginsberg finally pops her clogs, it’ll be even more in his grip. Another not often appreciated advantage he enjoys is that he inherited a WH that was too lazy to fill nearly 150 vacant posts in the judiciary and he’s been busy filling those posts with his own appointments. The disproportionate makeup of the judicary’s Left leaning is being addressed big time.

I’ve often referred to the swamp dwellers living inside a bubble of unreality and in a similar way, Antifa, BLM and other extremists live inside their own little particular bubble of unreality. They think they’re going to oust Trump in 2020, install some sort of socialist state but the reverse is actually true. His strong actions in quelling the disturbances will have boosted his support massively in my estimation.

According to the polls, he was trailing behind Biden, but by this stage if you still believe any of the polls, just remember Hillary getting 98% to Trump’s 2% in the poll of polls on the eve of the 2016 election. All that burning down cities, looting and murder and mayhem will achieve is a massive landslide to Trump because the average American is at heart a conservative, and all these disturbances are achieving is pushing them into his open and welcoming arms. Realistically, he was already well in the lead anyway.

The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) endorsed President Trump’s reelection last week. It represents more than 1,000 police associations and 241,000 officers. He already had their vote after the support he’s given them, so the endorsement was a mere formality, especially after Biden got behind the defunding them craziness. If things get really extreme, he’ll have no problem declaring martial law in some cities since he enjoys the unswerving loyalty of both the police and armed forces.

The essential problem the rioters have is that inside their little terrorist bubble, they are operating under two false assumptions. The first is that they enjoy popular support from the average person, which they very definitely don’t, and the second is that he wouldn’t dare to take such draconian measures against them, which is also a grave miscalculation.

He has a habit of doing the things that need doing and to hell with his opponents screaming he can’t do that. If he’s forced to bring in the National Guard or the Military to restore order, he’ll do that. It’ll guarantee him being reelected, and it’ll be at their expense.

    I was watching the Tucker Carlson show on the 7/25/20. It was about the riots in Chicago. Since the start of ’20, over 2100 people have been shot dead. You hit the nail on the head – he said ordinary people were fleeing the city.

    The Dem politicians say – dear police, protect the DNC convention but not the ordinary people who voted them into power.
