A gunman started throwing Molotov cocktails outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Tacoma, Washington early this morning. The perpetrator appeared to be targeting a propane tank with his firebombs, hoping to cause a mass explosion, but he also set a vehicle on fire. When police arrived they shot him dead. He has not yet been publicly identified.

In other news, a transformer fire caused a massive electricity outage in New York City this evening, blacking out parts of Midtown Manhattan and the Upper West Side.

14-Year-Old Posts Picture of Airsoft Gun on Snapchat, School Suspends Him for 3 Weeks

The principal calls it “very, very serious” wrongdoing.

A Maryland eighth grader was suspended for three weeks and did not get to graduate with his class in June. This was his punishment for appearing in the background of a friend’s video in which said friend held a disabled airsoft gun. The eighth grader also posed for a photo with the friend, who held him in a headlock with the fake gun pointing at his head. The picture was shared with 13 other friends on Snapchat.

Are you silently giving thanks that social media didn’t exist when you were a middle schooler? Me too. The 14-year-old boy later admitted he was trying to look like a “badass.”

Drone Footage of Epstein’s ‘Pedo Island’ Shows Weird Sun Dial, Mattresses Inside ‘Temple’ Building

4k drone footage of Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘pedo island’ shows mattresses inside the ‘temple’ building as well as a weird sun dial surrounded by rocks.

Epstein was arrested last weekend on charges of sex trafficking of minors.

The billionaire bought his 75-acre island, Little St. James, for $7.95 million in 1998, though locals now refer to it as ‘orgy island’ or ‘pedo island’ following revelations that girls as young as 12 were trafficked there.

Newly released 4k drone footage taken over the island shows a strange sun dial surrounded by large rocks.

Learn Why Facebook is Greenlighting Violence Against Conservatives

Facebook has chosen to explicitly green-light violence against individuals their own platform deems “dangerous”

Robert Barnes joins Alex Jones and Kaitlin Bennett to break down why Facebook has chosen to explicitly green-light violence against individuals their own platform deems as “dangerous,” most of whom happen to be conservative, patriotic Americans who probably voted for President Trump.

[Comment: Face-”Build-Your-Own-Dossier”-Book is the data collection arm of the deep state. It is being used to identify enemies of the deep state apparatus. Think of the times in history when the communists build lists of their enemies for liquidation once the reds come to power. That’s what happened in Hungary — enemies of communists were identified by communist groups BEFORE the communists came to power. When the commies achieved power they quickly rounded up and liquidated their enemies with such speed people were surprised. America, never ever relinquinsh your 2nd amendment rights.]

Rush Limbaugh on Fox: AOC-Pelosi Feud is Funny, But it’s Not the ‘Real Story’

When asked about the citizenship question on the Census, Limbaugh asserted the Democrats want open borders because it gives them more power, it gives them a reliable underclass and a voting base, which is why they want non-citizens to vote. “The first thing behind this is a globalist movement to eliminate the whole concept of citizenship. And look, I know some of this is going to sound strange but it really isn’t. This is happening. They want to replace the concept of citizenship with residence. And these are global elites who want to manage the world and control as much of the population as they can. And the first thing you do, if you really want to do that, is get rid of this concept that people are citizens of different countries. You replace that concept with residents.”

Texas Sheriff Apologizes to Patriots Player, Defends Deputy

RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — A Texas sheriff said Friday he has apologized to New England Patriots player Elandon Roberts for the actions of a deputy who referred to the linebacker’s race and size during a March traffic stop but also defended the deputy’s comment and the stop. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said during a news conference that he spoke with Roberts and his attorney and said the deputy should not have taken so long with the March 10 traffic stop.

Roberts was stopped as he pulled into the driveway of his Houston-area home and Nehls also said Deputy Adam Watkins was wrong to order Roberts’ wife back inside the home when she saw flashing lights and stepped outside.

“The way he interacted with his wife, I didn’t appreciate the tone,” Nehls said of his deputy.

Watkins, who is white, ultimately was issued a verbal reprimand for how he conducted the stop, according to sheriff’s Capt. Steve Holtz.

But the stop, which was captured on dash-cam video, was warranted because Roberts was traveling 59 mph in a 35 mph zone as he traveled home, Nehls said. Holtz explained the ticket later was changed to a warning at the deputy’s request.

Watkins, in speaking to a colleague, referred to Roberts as a “big, black male” but Nehls defended the reference to race, saying the deputy was simply offering a description of the driver. The sheriff didn’t comment on why it was necessary for the deputy to invoke Roberts’ race…

The Democratic Party’s Terrorist Arm Antifa Needs to be Taken Down by President Trump’s FBI and DOJ Before They Trigger Civil War, Thus Ensuring Their Own Annihilation

Antifa Are Mainstream Media Supported Domestic Terrorists

by By John C. Velisek, US Navy, Retired

Jonathon Soros, the son of George Soros has founded the “Friends of Democracy” which is nothing more than an activist fund to be used to increase civil unrest

Portland is a city out of control. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is allowing Antifa to take over his town and silence dissenting voices with violence that is sanctioned by Wheeler and the police standing down. This is not the first time this has occurred. In June of 2018, the ICE office in Portland was surrounded by protesters refusing to allow ICE to enforce immigration laws.

Calling themselves anti-fascists, they use the same organizational mobs of white thugs dressed in black to attempt to intimidate any who disagree with them, and damage or steal property. They are no better than the shock troops during Hitler’s regime and will meet the same fate. In any confrontation, the masks must be torn off, and those behind them exposed.

They wear masks the same as the KKK did in days gone by because they are cowardly and don’t want anyone to know who they are. It allows them to move freely and do what they want, what they want most in the same trash that anarchists have always wanted. They don’t consider that many people disagree with them, and if there is disagreement, you will be beaten down. That is because Antifa considers those that disagree with them to be a non-person. It doesn’t matter whether you are confronting them or not. If you are walking by you stand just as good a chance of being set upon like a pack of rats by Antifa.

There are large swaths of the education and celebrities that have been taught that the U.S. is an evil nation. Racist, homophobic, xenophobic. That is why Antifa along with other anarchists are keeping pressure on our government and the citizens themselves to tear down statues, destroy paintings, and do whatever violence they deem necessary to destroy the history and culture of this great country. They are incapable of original thought or action and only parrot what they have learned as theory. They have been convinced that they are the romantic nobility of the revolution who are the only ones who can save us. It is not the ruin of the present President that they want. What they want is the destruction of culture and the rule of law that our country is built upon.

One of those rules of law is 18 U.S.C. 241 which prohibits any conspiracy to “injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in the exercise of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States”. Another law 42 U.S.C. 1983 states that if two or more persons conspire or go in disguise for the purpose of depriving any person of the equal protections of the law, the party injured may recover damages from any or all the conspirators.

Combined with 42 U.S.C. 1986 which creates liability for anyone having knowledge that wrongs have been done or are about to be committed and fail to prevent them is also liable. These rules of law put Mayor Wheeler directly in the sights of a federal RICO lawsuit and fines based on federal law. Wheeler says that he didn’t foresee the violence; it has happened in the past many times. Antifa has blocked roads, attacked pedestrians, and beaten anyone who they feel could disagree with them.

The media are willing accomplices, inferring that Antifa is right. The Mainstream media continues to inflame the political violence and division that makes Antifa possible.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have found Antifa to be an “anarchist extremist movement” who are “the primary instigators of violence at public rallies.” DHS formally classified Antifa activities as “Domestic Terrorist Violence” as far back as April 2016.

Antifa has learned organization and tactics while Trump was running for President. Both Antifa and the MSM blamed right-wing Trump supporters for the violence at his rallies, knowing full well it was the far left anarchists of Antifa that were responsible for the violence.

Let’s go back to Portland Mayor Wheeler. If the Mayor does not do the job he was elected to do, there are only two alternatives. Both sides will escalate the violence until the members of Antifa are extinguished. I have found that unless they are in a group and outnumber their target, they will do everything in their power to cause harm. They appear to think that ordinary citizens are with them, allowing whatever they feel is necessary to stifle dissent.

Antifa has a clearly defined agenda that they use to advance the objectives they seek. They must keep the citizens in a state of intense fear and chaos. They have identified the groups of favor by race, ideology, and other esoteric favoritisms. If one of the favored groups suffer a setback, it is always someone else’s fault, usually someone of traditional religious affiliation such as Jews or Christians. If that can’t be made to work, then the overall blame on capitalism always works with those in the media that support Antifa.

They will also never admit that they could be wrong but blame everything of the adversary, whether political or not. They don’t care about the small business owners whose lives have been turned upside down, and will scream at any crises that they feel can be used for the cause. They do not understand or allow civil discourse, do not allow government policies to get in their way, and believe that a centralized government, run by them, of course, is the only resolution that they will agree to.

The other alternative is a federal RICO investigation of all involved, including those, like George Soros who finance the violence. Their tactics are nothing more than intimidation and violent extortion with the sole purpose of shutting down dissent or even engage in constitutionally protected political activity. Perhaps there is not a way to investigate and arrest the perpetrators. After all, the cowardly wear masks to keep from being known.

And it will get worse if nothing is done. Jonathon Soros, the son of George Soros has founded the “Friends of Democracy” which is nothing more than an activist fund to be used to increase civil unrest that will continue to increase until the declaration of martial law. Like in Portland, Antifa looks to own the streets in areas such as Washington, Los Angeles, Baltimore and other progressive socialist urban areas.

But there are ways to identify them. Spray paint is one way. Spray their face and follow them back to the Antifa command. Federal Marshalls should be given more leeway. If attacked by Antifa, don’t continue to back up. Take them on with the full force of the law enforcement protocols you have been given. I was once part of the Provost Marshalls office in the Far East during a riot. The simple response was, as they attacked, we used billy clubs on their shins and knees. As they dropped, we threw them in the truck. It was foolproof. They couldn’t say it wasn’t them with the torn up knees and shins that they caused to occur.

Antifa is nothing more than gullible and highly indoctrinated foot soldiers whose sole purpose is to intimidate those who disagree with the garbage they believe. They have an overblown romantic notion that they are freedom fighters saving our nation when the truth is they are nothing more than domestic terrorists. Between Antifa and the sycophants at CNN, MSNBC, CBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post and others will always attempt to find a way to blame President Trump and his supporters. The media is complicit in the dangers faced by the American families that support our President, and everyone should be charged under RICO and put in jail.

Italy: Death Threat: Salvini Blames Left After Receiving Bullet in Envelope

Italian deputy prime minister and minister of the interior Matteo Salvini has blamed left-wing extremists after being sent an envelope containing a bullet in the latest death threat against the League leader.

The envelope, which contained a .22 calibre bullet, was discovered at the centre of the Italian Post Office in Sesto Fiorentino earlier this week and was addressed to “Minister Duce Matteo Salvini” — a reference to the title used by the late fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, Il Giornale reports.

After the discovery of the envelope, the Carabinieri were called to the post office centre where a bomb squad conducted an investigation, and the state police say they have also begun an investigation to trace the identity of the person who sent the envelope.

Italy: Telecoms Companies Must Issue 28-Day Bill Payback

Council of State rules

The original reimbursement deadline was December 31, 2018, but it was suspended after the Council of State upheld a request for suspension from telecommunications companies and while judges awaited a filing of motivations by the Lazio TAR.

Ted Malloch: Can Britain be Great Again?

This very next week the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will have a new Prime Minister.

Gone is the lame, feeble Remainer Theresa May, who will go down in history as the worst political leader ever. She could not do a damn thing. As President Trump said, she is inept and “made a mess of Brexit.”

Her intransigence and foolhardiness have led to three years of demise, polarization and most significantly — NO BREXIT.

She was booted out, resigned and held in both contempt and no confidence.

The contest to replace her in the Conservative — Tory Party had many contenders but boils down to a copycat of May-Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt, another Remainer, with no new ideas or plans just more of the same, AND Boris Johnson, the charismatic, dynamic former Mayor of London, who is in many ways, the Trump of the British Isles.

He is irreverent, brash, colorful and promises one thing, come hell or high water-LEAVING the EU on October 31st.

‘BOJO’ as he is known in a moniker has the MOJO to restore Britain and to carry the day.

And I am not joking ala Austin Powers or Monty Python, either.

The Etonian and Oxonian is from the high classes but he connects with the people.

He is distinctly Churchillian and doesn’t care what the elites or the establishment say or think. He is a fighter.

In a word: he is a patriot.

He helped to rid the UK of its “stupid” and venomous “wacko and pompous” anti-Trump ambassador last week, so he is off to a good start.

The best guess I’ve seen is a high-yield, 100 — 200 megaton, cobalt thermonuclear bomb.

A bomb that size, two to four times more powerful than the biggest ever exploded, the Soviet Tsar Bomba (limited to 50 MT to allow the delivery plane a chance to escape) a bomb that size is awful enough but if it is encased in cobalt it becomes the most lethal munition ever built.

The idea is terrifyingly simple: Just encase a really powerful H-bomb in massive amounts of cobalt.

When it explodes, it makes the cobalt radioactive and spreads it around the area or the globe, depending on the design. The half-life of the radioactive cobalt produced is about five years, which is long enough to give the fallout plenty of time to settle before it decays and kills, but short enough to produce intense radiation for a lot longer than you’d last in a fallout shelter. There’s almost no upper limit to how much cobalt and explosive power you can put in nukes that are buried for deterrence or transported by sea, and climate simulations have shown how hydrogen bombs can potentially lift fallout high enough to enshroud the globe, so if someone really wanted to risk the extinction of humanity, starting a C-bomb arms race is arguably one of the most promising strategies.

Russian Navy Officer: Fire on Russian Nuclear Submarine Could Have Led to “Planetary Catastrophe”

“The large-scale fire was provoked, according to our information, by heat dispersal of the battery, which was followed by a series of explosions. The personnel in the front compartment died. So powerful was the shock wave that it was even felt on the mothership. At the moment of the explosion, the apparatus [submarine] was in the process of docking onto it. The survivors sealed off the central compartment, completed the docking, shut down the nuclear reactor and evacuated to the BS-136 Orenburg. Fearing further explosions and that the fire would spread to the carrier, the crew of the mothership flooded the submarine, and this is why by the time it arrived at its base in Severomorsk the submarine was completely underwater.”

Because of the flooding of the submarine, it took over four days to recover 10 of the 14 bodies of the officers. The report about the explosions on board the Losharik would also corroborate a statement by the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority, according to which they had been notified by the Russians of a gas explosion aboard a vessel in the Barents Sea. The report by the Norwegian Authorities had been denied by the Kremlin.

How U.S. Tech Giants Are Helping to Build China’s Surveillance State

An American organization founded by tech giants Google and IBM is working with a company that is helping China’s authoritarian government conduct mass surveillance against its citizens, The Intercept can reveal.

The OpenPower Foundation — a nonprofit led by Google and IBM executives with the aim of trying to “drive innovation” — has set up a collaboration between IBM, Chinese company Semptian, and U.S. chip manufacturer Xilinx. Together, they have worked to advance a breed of microprocessors that enable computers to analyze vast amounts of data more efficiently.

Shenzhen-based Semptian is using the devices to enhance the capabilities of internet surveillance and censorship technology it provides to human rights-abusing security agencies in China, according to sources and documents. A company employee said that its technology is being used to covertly monitor the internet activity of 200 million people.

Civil Disobedience/Noncompliance Are Damaging New Zealand’s Gun Control Efforts

If you want to know how to beat gun control, look no further than New Zealand. Noncompliance with the new mandatory gun buyback law is kneecapping the government’s ability to enforce the law they wrote.

As of last week, only 700 weapons have been turned over to New Zealand’s government under new gun control laws written in haste in the wake of a mass shooting at Christchurch mosques. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns-with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms-in the country overall.

SHTFPlan mentioned the fact that Kiwis were disobeying the law, and things have still not changed. Gun owners in New Zealand have all but officially nullified the law by ignoring it…

New Zealand’s government also stepped up censorship and domestic surveillance after bloody attacks on two Christchurch mosques earlier this year, flinging itself into full-blown authoritarian tyranny. But that isn’t convincing the public that they need to obey the commands of the government. As it turns out, people want to be free and noncompliance is the way they are maintaining a shred of their liberty. Gun owners, at this point, will most likely never turn their now-banned weapons in either.

New Zealand Gun Owners Forced to Hand in Firearms, Shortchanged by ‘Buyback’

Dozens of Christchurch gun owners on Saturday handed over their weapons in exchange for money, in the first of more than 250 planned buyback events around New Zealand after the government outlawed many types of semi-automatics.

Police said they paid more than 430,000 New Zealand dollars ($288,000) to 169 gun owners during the event. The money was paid directly into the bank accounts of gun owners.

Out of Power Nationally, Politician Finally Tells Truth on “Global Warming”

“We’re all as honest as we can afford to be,” noted late comedian Lenny Bruce. One man who can now afford to be far more honest is politician Barnaby Joyce. Once a two-time deputy prime minister of Australia, Joyce is now a “backbencher” only representing rural New South Wales. As such, he has finally told everyone what he really thinks about the man-made climate-change agenda:

It’s “barking” madness.

American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson explains how Joyce became an “honest man,” writing, “Like the United States, Australia is subject to agitation for CO2 emissions reduction in the name of ‘saving the planet.’ As deputy P.M. serving in coalition under the leadership of warmist true believer Malcolm Turnbull, Joyce could not speak his mind for fear of those interests.”

“But Australia has a new liberal (conservative) government following federal elections last May 19, with the margin of victory attributed by most observers to the opposition by Scott Morrison, the new leader of the Liberals, to closing a major coal mine,” Lifson continues.

Consequently, “Joyce is now a backbencher and can finally tell the truth about the global warming scare,” writes the Herald Sun’s Andrew Bolt (story paywalled).

Regardless of how it took becoming a backbencher to find backbone, Joyce’s comments are so to the point and powerful that they warrant reprint in toto. As he wrote on Facebook:

“The very idea that we can stop climate change is barking mad. Climate change is inevitable, as geology has always shown.” These are the views of New Zealand lecturer of geology, David Shelley. A person vastly more competent than me and the flotilla of others telling the kids the world is going to end from global warming.

“Sweden is at War”

In 2018, Sweden experienced a record number of lethal shootings, 306 in all. Forty-five people were killed and 135 injured nationwide, most deaths occurring in Region South, where Malmö is located. In March, the Swedish National Forensic Centre estimated that since 2012, the number of shootings classified as murder or attempted murder has increased by almost 100 percent. The Centre also found that the most popular weapon used in the shootings is the Kalashnikov assault rifle. “It is one of the world’s most manufactured weapons and used in many wars,” said the Centre’s team manager, Mikael Högfors. “When they are no longer needed… they are smuggled into Sweden”.

In the first six months of 2018, according to the police, almost every other shooting took place in a “vulnerable area”, also known as no-go zones. In 2017, a Swedish police report, “Utsatta områden 2017” (“Vulnerable Areas 2017”) disclosed that there are 61 such areas in Sweden. They encompass 200 criminal networks, consisting of an estimated 5,000 criminals. Most of the inhabitants are non-Western immigrants and their descendants.

Anti-ICE Protesters Deface American Flag, Raise Mexican Flag Over Colorado Processing Center

Thousands of anti-ICE protesters gathered outside of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) center in Aurora, Colorado, on Friday afternoon. After breaking through barricades, protesters removed a U.S. flag at the Aurora ICE Processing Center and replaced it with a Mexican flag.

Protesters additionally hoisted a Blue Lives Matter flag upside down, spray-painted in red with the words, “Abolish ICE.” The Blue Lives Matter flag, which can also be called the “Thin Blue Line” flag, depicts the U.S. flag with black and white colors with one stripe being replaced by a thin blue line to represent that law enforcement is the line that stands between chaos and order.

Exclusive — Paul Gosar: GOP/Dems Gifting Tech Elites More Foreign Labor to Replace Americans

Rep. Paul Gosar is blasting the passage of a bill that will allow Indian nationals to monopolize the United States’ green card system, providing Silicon Valley’s tech elites with an endless flow of cheaper, foreign workers.

This week, 140 House Republicans, 224 House Democrats, and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) — led by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — voted to allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least the next ten years, providing a constant stream of foreign workers that American professionals will be forced to compete against for white-collar jobs.

In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, Gosar slammed the green card giveaway scheme, known as HR. 1044, supported by both political establishments, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Indian outsourcing lobby, and multinational tech conglomerates.

California Parents Horrified at New Sex-Ed Agenda

The debate over whether schools should teach sex education to minors has been going on for decades. But now, perhaps more than ever, many parents are horrified by what their children are being taught — especially when parents, despite their religious beliefs, have no say about the teaching materials.

In a small California community, parents and clergy were so appalled at the explicit and LGBTQ-inspired lessons, they went undercover to investigate deeper. What they discovered at a Riverside County Comprehensive Health Education meeting so horrified them, they determined to stop the curriculum.

Our Watch President Pastor Tim Thompson said:

“We don’t want our children exposed to some of these things they are showing, th(is) pornographic, sexually explicit material. It has no place in the classroom. It’s not right, and it won’t be tolerated.”

Thompson was referring to Positive Prevention Plus, the text for sex ed classes. John Andrews, parent of a student in the Murrieta School District, was sick over the explicit material depicted in the “educational” materials. He said:

“They talk about mutual masturbation. They discuss gender roles, the gender spectrum, and in the support materials . they take it even further. They discuss everything, topics like roleplaying for different genders, blood play, dental dams . fisting is mentioned. I mean, they mention it all.

“If I were to show that material to a child, I would be brought up on charges. But somehow our public schools are allowed to teach this to junior high and high school kids.”

The graphics in the instructional guides use cartoon images so detailed that many parents found them inappropriate. Wanting to discover more about what children would be learning, Thompson’s group attended meetings held by the school boards. At one particular meeting in Riverside, a woman went “undercover” and recorded the event. Thompson said he was shocked to discover some of the biggest contributors to the new sex ed curriculum included Planned Parenthood and Cardea Services, which he said is a huge advocate for the LGBT community. Another shocker was that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was on hand to explain how to excuse children from class to get abortions without parents finding out.

Study: Psychiatric Diagnoses Worthless and “Scientifically Meaningless”

Since psychiatrists have a whole thick book of “mental disorders” (the DSM-5), it’s too bad that it is essentially meaningless for diagnostic purposes.

That’s the conclusion of a new study, anyway, published in Psychiatry Research, which “concluded that psychiatric diagnoses are scientifically worthless as tools to identify discrete mental health disorders,” reports NeuroscienceNews.com.

“The study, led by researchers from the University of Liverpool, involved a detailed analysis of five key chapters of the latest edition of the widely used Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), on ‘schizophrenia’, ‘bipolar disorder’, ‘depressive disorders’, ‘anxiety disorders’ and ‘trauma-related disorders’,” the site continues.

The DSM (currently in its fifth edition) is considered the “psychiatrist’s bible” and was “created to provide a common diagnostic language for mental health professionals and attempt to provide a definitive list of mental health problems, including their symptoms,” NeuroscienceNews.com also informs. Unfortunately, far from being infallible, the researchers warn that the book’s diagnostic labeling represents “a disingenuous categorical system.”

The study’s main findings were, NeuroscienceNews.com tells us:

  • Psychiatric diagnoses all use different decision-making rules
  • There is a huge amount of overlap in symptoms between diagnoses
  • Almost all diagnoses mask the role of trauma and adverse events
  • Diagnoses tell us little about the individual patient and what treatment they [sic] need

In summary, lead researcher Dr. Kate Allsopp, University of Liverpool, said in a release, “Although diagnostic labels create the illusion of an explanation they are scientifically meaningless and can create stigma and prejudice.”

[Comment: There is no scientific test for any of the diagnoses. It’s all done by “voting”. Remember “Oppositional Defiant Disorder” — supposedly all patriots and conservatives suffer from this “malady”. ]

        • “Devil Comes Back to Georgia” featuring Mark O’Connor with Daniels, Cash, Tritt and Marty Stuart

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0XUTD7QYcs

          Despite not being a rabid fan of C&W myself, seeing that genre’s patriarch mugging it up for the camera is oddly heartwarming.

          I saw O’Connor open with Dave Grisman’s quintet to warm up for the immortal jazz artist, Stéphane Grappelli. The show’s highlight was a duet of Stéphane and Mark with the elder tossing out lines which O’Connor would shred with gleeful abandon.

          The annual Fiddler’s Green competition had to change their rules so that Mark would not keep winning every year. Truly, that evening’s finale was an unaccompanied duet concert and felt like a scene with Bradbury’s book people at the end of Fahrenheit 451—where the young learners are being passed another generation’s torch.

          So was it on stage that night in one of SF’s smallest venues. The show closed with a jaw-dropping set by Grapelli, on grand piano, no less.

          I’ll leave out driving 200 miles after the show for a camp out in Yosemite. My sweetie never had been camping before and it took years for her to realize that not all breakfasts in the wild begin with a round of freshly brewed Keoke coffees.

    • This is a promising development in the sense that by elevating perverts ahead of feminists in the Victimhood Olympics, the radical left runs the risk of splitting the movement. At least some of the academic feminists have awoken to the realization that they are being thrown under the bus in favor of perverts and at the expense of all women. After all, it is women who must give up their privacy in public toilets, their prizes in female sports, and their lofty position in the victimhood olympics. They have already fallen behind perverts, islamists, people with more melanin, and homosexuals. Any further of a fall and they will be behind dogs, endangered smelt, and desert tortoises. At some point, even the most obtuse overeducated academic feminists should start to realize they are just tools of the radical left to be used and discarded when their usefulness has diminished in favor of newer and better tools.
