"Well, he looked like a nazi, so it's his fault!"

Witt says he’d just pulled in to the parking lot of the Steak ’n Shake in Sheridan, Colo., and was opening his car door.

“All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me,” he said.
Sooner or later one or more of these dickheads is going to attack someone and get shot, and the dickheads will all collectively crap their pants in outrage and start rioting.  This crap is likely to get monumentally ugly.

My lodge had its annual fundraiser yesterday,

and between the prep stuff the days before and all the fun from the time I woke up(way too early), I'm still tired.  And the rest of cleanup is today, yay.

Yes, there is news out there.  A very short version of bitching about it:
Really?  Connected to an extremist group?  Who could've guessed...

"Someone used a car to kill someone else!  We need more gun control!"  Because the mayor of Charlottesville is an idiot. Who doesn't know the law, and has a shaky grasp on history.  And plays the usual "I'm a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, BUT-" game.  And plays the "It's all the fault of the Alt-Right!" crap; because pointing out the left's involvement in the problem Just Isn't Done.

Gets called race-traitor(again) and nazi supporter in 3, 2, 1...
“I’ve always ignored them!” he continued. “Rick, I’m 54 years old. I’ve never thought about those statues a day in my life. I think if you ask most black people to be honest, they ain’t thought a day in their life about those stupid statues. What we as black people need to do: We need to worry about getting our education, we need to stop killing each other, we need to try to find a way to have more economic opportunity and things like that. Those things are important and significant. You know, I’m wasting time and energy screaming at a neo-Nazi, or [saying] ‘Man, you’ve got to take this statue down.’”

"Don't be Evil(unless it serves the cause)!"

And that's it for now.

How effing stupid and in the tank are our Professional Journalists?

Liz Sheld • August 17@1:40 PM chat 10 comments

I really can't think of anything to say about this. Just speechless.
Not kidding....@wolfblitzer just said the Barcelona attack is a "copycat" of the Charlottesville attack.
That friggin' stupid.

Short Version: The EffingBI cannot be trusted,

neither can the Justice Department.  A whole lot of people in both need to be out looking for jobs.
Previously, the FBI told the ACLJ that they found no documents. But, the batch of documents the ACLJ released previously showed FBI employees who were involved in email threads with DOJ officials.

The ACLJ celebrated the decision on their website, saying, "While we appreciate that the FBI has ‘reopened' the case file and is now ‘searching' for documents responsive to our duly submitted [Freedom of Information Act] request from more than a year ago, it stretches the bounds of credulity to suggest that the FBI bureaucracy just discovered that ‘potentially responsive' records ‘may exist' on its own accord."

Speaking of political operatives with bylines.  Loves terrorists, hates our own troops. 

Remind you of anyone?

The remains of Ming Dynasty Wanli Emperor at the Ming tombs. Red Guards dragged the remains of the Wanli Emperor and Empresses to the front of the tomb, where they were posthumously "denounced" and burned.

Found at Wiki on the page about Mao's Red Guard.

Well, McAuliffe is a liar

Along with other unpleasant things.

Like that bit of video where he refused to condemn the Antifa thugs for their violent acts.  Because he doesn't want to speak badly of his friends and minions.

Remember: bad as Trump may be on some things, at least it's not Hillary Clinton in the White House with McAuliffe & Friends as advisers and brownshirts.

A new(to me at least) projectile & brass source

Somebody had a link to Reloading Valley a while back, and after looking things over I ordered some 110-grain Hornady .308 bullets and some Nosler 210-grain .338 to try.

It's mostly brass and bullets that were pulled from ammo for whatever reason, and they state in the bullet description
These bullets are from a pulldown operation, so they will be slightly tarnished and you may notice light tooling marks from the demil process.
When these came in I checked them over; some slight marks on some of them, all in places where I think the jacket would engage the rifling; the .338s had some slightly-mashed noses.  I've only had time to load and try a few of the .338s with a known load; they shot well.  And the price was damned good, especially considering shipping is included.

Take a look, might find some stuff you can use.

'Internet of Things'; not in my house

Hundreds of Internet-connected locks became inoperable last week after a faulty software update caused them to experience a fatal system error, manufacturer LockState said.
That's a problem.  A BIG problem.  And that was just a botched update, not intentional action.

I do NOT want my heating/cooling/locks/lights/refrigerator capable of being controlled by anyone who can sneak or hack into the system.  No, thank you.

I'm seeing a lot of crap on social media along the lines of "If you say 'Antifa and the National Socialists are both idiots', that makes you a Nazi sympathizer!"

Maybe in your idiot world, but not in mine, dumbass.  We need a meme saying "If you think yelling at both sides means you support one of them, you're a fucking idiot."

You wonder why there's less respect for cops?

Because we now hear about garbage like this, and the cops get away with it.

The Harris County District Attorney's office did not return calls from Reason, but county prosecutor Natasha Sinclair told the Houston TV station KRIV that "no one in this office stands by the search the way it happened," but she also said the officers' "bad judgement" might not rise to the level of criminal offense.
BAD JUDGEMENT?   That's how you 'excuse' this shit?

Every good cop on that force is going to catch shit for this, and a helluva lot of people are going to say "You want our support?  Clean your damned house, and then maybe."

Added: part of the response letter from Harris County:

So they BADLY violated policy(ignore the law for the moment), and are causing your agency a freakin' huge amount of trouble- and will probably cost the taxpayers a fortune unless some judge says "No qualified immunity for you"- and they still have jobs.  Great.

So, two groups of socialists are beating on each other

and I'm supposed to think one is better than the other?  Nope.
Sick to bloody death of both of them.  One's either wearing hoods or carrying swastikas, the other's wearing masks and carrying Soviet flags.  Screw 'em both.

And damn most of our media as well.
...Seattle police said in a statement that three men were arrested on suspicion of obstruction and assault. Confiscated weapons included ax handles, 2-by-4s and balloons containing an “unknown liquid substance,” the statement said.
NBC doesn’t tell us who, exactly, got arrested and carried ax handles, 2-by-4s and an “unknown liquid substance,” but it was the “antifa” fascists.
Counter-protesters — including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party — marched “in solidarity against hate,” specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence” of the “far-right” organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags, yelled “f*ck America,” squirted police with silly-string, and burned the American flag.
Most of the talking heads on TV and print aren't reporters, they're political operatives with bylines, and not to be trusted.  At all.

Also: politicians.  That slimy bastard McAuliffe, Governor of VA, blamed the ACLU for the crap in Charlottesville.  Because "I didn't want to allow THOSE people to speak, but they made me."  Which tells you exactly what he defines as 'free speech': "MY thugs get to speak, but not THEIRS."  I have my problems with the ACLU, but here they're right: those people had a right to gather, like them(or what they had to say) or not.  That bastard also had plenty of time for the cops and NG to prepare in case of trouble, but apparently had them stand back and let things blow up instead.  Wonderful guy, isn't he?

By the way: yes, the Nazis were/are socialists.  Deal with it, lefties.
