        Chris,

        There is a silent conservative aspect to Ocean and Monmouth Counties, especially among the retirees. Although I have not been to the state in abouttwo decades, I would be willing to bet that some of the other counties are beginning to shake off the machine and think more independently, but I doubt there is much conversation (openly) on the change.

        Please hang in there, and sorry about both your current Governor (the revenge of Goldman Sachs – I guess they are still mad Corzine was not declared dictator for life) as well as the new mask order.

        Best,

    Below is a message I sent to whitehouse.gov in the hope that we can get some help here. I’m also going to send it out to as many people who I think may be able to get the word out as possible. Next time it could be your hometown.

    There is going to be a massive protest in my small town this Sunday, 7-12-20. It is being put on by the same group that instigated the riots and violence in Minneapolis & Charlottesville. We have a very small police department and their entire plan is to tell the downtown businesses to board up and they will then stand down and hope for the best. We have a Soros-funded DA, so no rioters or looters will be prosecuted and anybody who defends themselves or their property from the mob will be prosecuted. We desperately need federal help, either in the form of troops or undercover federal officers that can infiltrate the mob, arrest and prosecute the rioters for federal crimes. This is extremely urgent. The mob has declared our peaceful little town to be a “bastion of white supremacy”. I have lived here for 27 years and it is nothing of the sort. Also, keep in mind that nothing happened here, there was no police brutality, no violence whatsoever. Now our town is being threatened.

      ” While they appear to be a peaceful group, we have intelligence that counter protestors will show up to protest against protestors.”

It was mainly to warn all the locals to stay the hell away because the police aren’t going to help and we’ll get no justice from the DA. She doesn’t do regular justice, only social justice.

          Sorry to hear.

          We are going through a similar problem here. A Police Forum was held last week, where a few plants demanded that our force be defunded by 50%. Our councilman made a statement that the rest of our ward agreed. Our chief and deputy ‘retired’ the day after. Mayor says he knew about this for awhile, but then why now is he just starting to look at candidates?

          I have been lobbing emails to the entire council, management and mayor since then.

      Key words: “hope”, “minimize”.

      Here’s a thought: before closing time on Friday, get a large group of local citizens and especially business owners to march to the mayors office. Demand to see the mayor.

      Tell the mayor: “We will hold YOU civilly liable for ANY destruction of personal or business property resulting from this protest. So you better figure out a plan to save your town, Mr. Mayor.”

      There’s no reason they couldn’t request assistance from the State Police considering there should be a reasonable anticipation of violence.

      Joe, I’m replying because I don’t want you to think that no one saw your post – or didn’t read it. You folks need real help – fast. I’m hoping that someone here, with better connections and more savvy than I, will see this and offer some genuine, viable assistance to your community of Martinez. There is sufficient evidence, demonstrated for almost two full months of protests, a number of which have turned into rioting, that warrants sending outside help to you.

      I would contact every, single U.S.Congressional Representative from California – TONIGHT – and your two U.S. Senators as well, regardless of political Party. Get some help from others in your community and all of you flood your elected officials in D.C. with messages and phone calls.

      Find a way to publicize their responses, or lack of response to you, nationally. They need to be shamed, but you all need to be protected from those who would provoke and execute incendiary activity.

      Put it out on the new social media vehicle “PARLER”. I’m not sure that FB or Twitter would be a safe harbor for all of you under the circumstances. IOW, I do not trust either of them.

      We have FEMA for assistance in natural disasters. What do we have for emergencies generated by disgruntled human beings who deliberately destroy property and think nothing of harming other human beings? One would think that these plans, to be executed by outsiders, and led by infiltrators, would warrant at least a healthy contingent of the CA State Police on site, if not National Guardsmen based in California.

      I am contacting my own Pennsylvania representatives and sending your post to them tomorrow morning. And I’m going to contact AG Barr’s office. At the very least, no one will be able to pretend that this “event” was a surprise.

      Praying for all of you. Let us know how you progress. I will do what I can with my phone and my keyboard. This would be a really good time for a miracle.

          Nobody will mind. The other side plans and organizes. The time is now for us to out-plan and out-organize the mob that’s trying to tear our country to shreds.

          When I suggested contacting all the CA Congress Reps, I was thinking that this needs to land right in front of Kevin McCarthy and Devin Nunez – even though neither of them is your Congresman. All of the D.C. types have to be alerted, provoked, and even shamed into “showing up”. We all need help. And they work for us.

          Mr. Piddles mentioned the CHP. That made sense to me. Mr. Piddles, above, also had a really good suggestion which I’m going to paste back in here below:

          “Here’s a thought: before closing time on Friday, get a large group of local citizens and especially business owners to march to the mayors office. Demand to see the mayor.

          Tell the mayor: “We will hold YOU civilly liable for ANY destruction of personal or business property resulting from this protest. So you better figure out a plan to save your town, Mr. Mayor.”

          There’s no reason they couldn’t request assistance from the State Police considering there should be a reasonable anticipation of violence.”

          I will follow through in the morning with contacting those I proposed above.

      Tiny towns. Tiny highway #9, they are marching on is one of two roads providing access to hospitals.

      Ben Lomond is where Deputy Gutzwiller of Santa Cruz County Sheriff was gunned down by Steven Carillo. Carillo was at the Oakland BLM protest and shot at both, but killed one, of the black guards at the Federal courthouse in Oakland.

      Rubbing it in our faces. Seems coordinated. If you go to Scotts Valley ‘blm’ effbook page you can see their talking strategy and how to deal with us.

      They realize they won’t get anywhere calling VSGPDJT, ‘orange’. But they are not allowed to say his name.

      Ask them to name the 45th President and watch them squirm.

I just can’t shake the feeling that we haven’t seen it all yet. I keep thinking that Biden is the shiny object. And we have all surmised that Biden, if elected, would not be running anything. But what happens if at the last minute Biden is declared too ill to be elected? Could that not happen? We can’t have an election without at least two parties competing for the position of POTUS, can we? We know the Dims absolutely would not allow PDJT to continue unchallenged so . . .what?????

      https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/08/politics/joe-biden-bernie-sanders-task-force-recommendations/index.html

      Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign on Wednesday released a raft of policy recommendations crafted by allies of the former vice president and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, underscoring the party’s unity less than four months from November’s general election.

      The hilarious thing is that they’re giving us the “Sanders Revolution”, but with a Doddering Old Fool in place of the energetic, charismatic, and ever-popular Commie-Senator-Slash-Ultra-Progressive-Pop-Icon-From-The-Green-Mountain-State, Bernie Sanders.

      So is that supposed to attract the Centrist Democrats and Left-Leaning Independents who otherwise wouldn’t vote for Sanders himself?

      The Biden strategy is plain as day… he just told the world the other day he wants to “transform America”… in other words: totally cede control to The Lunatics.

      There will be an election, even if Biden drops out the day before the election. Technically you are voting for who will be your presidential electors for your state. Even in most regular elections dead people can and have won. It depends on the state and when Biden drops out who’s name will be on the Ballot.

            Also, I didn’t see the entire broadcast but right at the end of McCallum’s show that Trace Gallagher is hosting this week, KT McFarland was on reporting that John Durham wants to hang back on doing anything with his investigation until after the election because he fears action now will be viewed as political.

      Teabag14,

      In the worst case scenario (and a section of the CIA used to game this out in the 1970s and 1980s – there are older books on this matter), the election will be delayed due to threats regardng voting locations (or in our case Covid). The original planning involved Weather Underground types of organizations.

      They would plan around 2-3 month delays, with the POTUS staying in office during the term. The general plan was to expect civil unrest over the delay and for responses to be formulated to quell these events by various law enforcement units (my guess is that the original gaming started around the Nixon administration).

      Should this event actually take place, I do not think it will matter in this case. The DNC is in complete disarray as they continue to fight internally (hence the Duckworth olive branch).

      Please do not worry; stay healthy and positive. All will be fine, and their “bench” has zero to offer in terms of viability.

  10. Regarding Kanye… was just doing some math for fun, using 2016 exit polls.

    If Kanye legit entered the race and got on all ballots… and if we give him all the Jill Stein, Anderson, McMullen, other votes… and if he were to take 44% of the black vote (with Biden getting 48 and Trump 8)… Trump would win the popular vote by around 6 million.

    What does that mean per state… well, it would give Trump a near 50/50 chance of taking California. That’s how crazy it could be with Kanye entering the race.

      Third Party Candidates just about always end up hurting the incumbent. Careful post election analyst shows this (quick news room stuff does not); I am unsure if Trump has anyone he trusts on his campaign staff that would understand the true pitfalls of a third party candidate to an incumbent. Kelly Ann would know this stuff, but she is not involved in the 2020 race; and she has some home problems this year.

      Incumbent elections are different from being a Challenger, there are pluses and minuses; some are not obvious.
