(CAMPUS REFORM) — The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee posted an opinion-editorial containing instructions on how to make and use a Molotov cocktail.
The editor-in-chief of the UWM Post, Adam Kelnhofer, wrote an op-ed on June 14 going over the history of the Molotov cocktail after protests broke out in Milwaukee following the death of George Floyd. The op-ed included instructions on how to “make a Molotov cocktail.”
After going over the history of Molotov cocktails and how they have been used in protests “against tyrannical governments around the world,” Kelnhofer says that while he does not “condone violence,” he supports individuals protecting themselves through “whatever means necessary.”
Original story, here. The author? The “Editor in Chief” of the student newspaper.
Maybe Bracken’s statement on what to do when you see someone light a Molotov cocktail near you is good advice….
Ignore the bogus claims of a popular “resistance” to President Trump’s “tyranny.”
A real resistance is rising against the anti-American, anti-white, anti-Christian pseudo-religion that threatens the safety, property, and historic rights of America’s core population. Here in my native Texas, armed citizens rallied to defend the Alamo, cradle of Texas independence and forge of Texan identity, from a leftist mob. And in the leftist blue heaven of our state capital, Austin, an armed motorist shot and killed an AK-47 toting terrorist who, together with his riotous BLM co-mobsters, was blocking a city thoroughfare. The good citizens of Weatherford stopped an attack on a Confederate monument.
Texans are fighting back, and likely won’t be the only Americans to do so.
Three Hopeful Signs
After leftist protestors defaced the Cenotaph at the Alamo in San Antonio, armed Texans who love their home and history showed up to protect the sacred site where Travis, Bowie, and Crockett held off Santa Anna’s army for 13 days.
The men call themselves the Texas Freedom Force, although the San Antonio Express-News, of course, tried to defame them as right-wing extremists, and the leftist Daily Beast claimed threats against the shrine to Texas liberty were bogus.
Nonetheless, the Texans sent a message. Even Sen. Ted Cruz was incensed: “Come and take it,” he tweeted.
In Austin, the late and lamented BLMer, one Garrett Foster, had bragged on social media about toting his Russian rifle. A photo shows him approaching the car, which BLMers had surrounded and were reportedly pounding, with that rifle. The car’s driver, who turned himself in, naturally felt threatened and opened fire.
No one should rejoice over Foster’s death. But one hopes it sends a message. The leftists blocking motorists and destroying cities should not expect people to simply watch their vehicles and property go up in flames, or the monuments of which they are justifiably proud be defaced and torn down.
In Weatherford, county seat of Parker County, Texas, a group of that fair city’s residents have had enough of leftist terrorists defacing and destroy monuments that honor our ancestors and the treasured history of our native land. When self-styled “progressives” demanded the removal of yet another Confederate statue at the county courthouse, counter protestors audaciously pushed back.
The benighted Fort Worth Star Telegram, a rag eager to prove its “journalists” can propagandize with the best of them, reported that 75 leftists, including BLMers, marched from a city park to the county courthouse on July 25. They planned a “protest,” which is leftist code for “tear down a ‘racist’ statue.”
But counter protesters showed up to rain on the leftist parade. Doing its level best to portray the good guys in the worst possible light, the Star-Telegram reported that they shouted “racial slurs,” and, even worse, some carried Confederate battle flags! A “progressive” called the good guys an “armed militia,” apparently a bad thing if the “militia” in question isn’t a gang of BLM terrorists. Two of the “progressives” compared the harmless clash to — what else? — “Charlottesville,” as well as a KKK rally. “Hate” was in the air!
Given the Left’s record of lies and distortions — with the mainstream media acting as the propaganda arm of the globalist Blob — color me skeptical of the State Telegram’s account. Still, to its credit, even if buried at the end of an article in the edition of July 27, the newspaper duly reported that the counter protestors included Jim Webster, a former county commissioner and businessman.
An eminently respectable citizen, Mr. Webster had the temerity to appear among the counter protestors with a “mock jail,” mounted on a trailer, depicting Bill and Hillary Clinton in prison stripes. The display similarly depicted Barack Obama, the leading sacred figure in the leftist pantheon until George Floyd eclipsed him as the new Messiah. And — brace yourselves, dear readers — the display included this blasphemy: “All Lives Matter.”
Surprisingly given its bias, the Star Telegram included Mr. Webster’s views. He and other citizens showed up to defend the statue, which with good reason they feared the leftists would attack. They wanted to “tell us how to run our lives,” he told the newspaper. Mr. Webster further observed that both sides were armed, but no one was seriously hurt. He described the situation as “explosive,” and explained who started the confrontation: “They came to us. … We didn’t go to them. We didn’t start anything.”
Weatherford’s people, Mr. Webster continued, “won’t put up with being bullied.” Indeed, Mr. Webster, the good people of Weatherford are not alone. Many of us won’t put up with it.
There was talk that the statue, which belongs to the United Daughters of The Confederacy, would be moved when they can raise the funds, which at least meant the residents of Weatherford had prevented Leftists from destroying it. But, in a remarkable move, on Thursday county commissioners voted unanimously to leave the statue where it is.

Time To Organize
These counter-protests are just one healthy sign of a coalescing, but as yet unorganized and uncoordinated Middle American resistance, to the leftist-globalist Blob’s aggressive attack. It wants to destroy our country, our people, our culture, and our history to demoralize us, then assert totalitarian control over our lives.
Indeed, the seeds of a full-blown counter revolution are scattered around the country … in the police officers who came down with the “blue flu” in Atlanta … in the truckers who have declared they won’t deliver to cities that defund the police … in county sheriffs who have defied gun-grabbing state governments …. in the popular resistance to draconian gubernatorial “mask” decrees … in rumblings of counties from California to Virginia about secession from tyrannical metropolitan areas … in numerous individual acts of self-defense, like that of the man who shot Garrett Foster or the men who defended the Alamo.
The next step? A leader, or group of leaders, must organize these scattered resisters and counter the Blob through coordinated and purposeful action. The strategic objective is defending our people by carving out havens for Middle Americans to live their lives as they see fit. It will not be easy. The Blob’s militant wing, BLM and Antifa, enjoys enormous financial, media, and official support. The “Deep State” will back whatever outrage they carry out and smear those of us who fight back.
Yet we have “boots on the ground,” and our people are learning that our collective back is against the wall. We have a chance to salvage something for ourselves and our posterity. Logically, Donald Trump should help organize the resisters, but your humble servant doubts his strategic thinking and organizational abilities.
The Michigan Supreme Court handed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) another legal defeat on Monday when a majority ruled her coronavirus orders are no longer in effect.
On October 2, the Court ruled that the 1945 law Whitmer has been using to justify a “state of emergency” and her lockdown orders was unconstitutional, effectively negating any executive orders related to it.
Whitmer attacked the Court and claimed that her orders remained in effect until October 30.
“(The) Supreme Court ruling, handed down by a narrow majority of Republican justices, is deeply disappointing, and I vehemently disagree with the court’s interpretation of the Michigan Constitution,” she said.
“Right now, every state and the federal government have some form of declared emergency. With this decision, Michigan will become the sole outlier at a time when the Upper Peninsula is experiencing rates of Covid infection not seen in our state since April.”
In a motion filed last Monday, Whitmer argued she created that date to “allow for an orderly transition during which some responsive measures can be placed under alternative executive authority and the Governor and Legislature can work to address many other pandemic-related matters that currently fall under executive orders,” CNN reported.
On Monday, the Court responded: No.
“Justices ruled 4-3 that the orders issued under the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act ‘are of no continuing legal effect,’” according to ABC 12.
The majority said the decision “leaves open many avenues for our Governor and Legislature to work together in a cooperative spirit and constitutional manner to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Instead, after the initial ruling, Whitmer’s administration issued new guidelines through the Department of Health and Human Services, under the Public Health Code of 1978, which require “face coverings, gathering limits, nursing home safety measures and more.”
Those new regulations are not affected by the Court’s ruling.
Prosecutors in Lake County, Illinois have announced that they will not be filing weapons charges against 17-year-old volunteer lifeguard Kyle Rittenhouse, who is currently charged with first degree murder by prosecutors in Kenosha. The news comes as a victory for Rittenhouse’s defense team, which is currently fighting attempts to extradite the teen to Wisconsin.
The rifle used by Rittenhouse during the shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin was confirmed by investigators to have been bought, stored, and used in Wisconsin.
According to the Lake And McHenry Counter Scanner, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office revealed that an intensive investigation by the Antioch Police Department found no evidence whatsoever that Rittenhouse acted in violation of Illinois weapons laws:
The investigation revealed the gun used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin.
The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the investigation and determined no crimes were committed in Lake County.
Prosecutors said there is no evidence the gun was ever physically possessed by Rittenhouse in Illinois.
Rittenhouse still faces charges in Winconsin.
On September 22, the Rittenhouse defense team released a mini-documentary that serves as an-depth, multi-faceted record of the shooting and case for the exoneration of Rittenhouse.
The account that posted the video to video hosting website Wistia was later banned.
On August 31, Rittenhouse attorney John Pierce appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” television program to explain the defense’s case against the charges filed by Kenosha County prosecutors:
Pierce revealed that Rittenhouse, 17, traveled to Kenosha after receiving a phone call from a business owner who had lost two out of three properties to arson and looting and was fearful that his last business would be next.
The lawyer also stated that first protester to be shot, convicted sex offender Joseph Rosenbaum, attacked Rittenhouse from behind and tried to take his weapon, forcing the teen to act in self defense. The New York Times report that found Rittenhouse did not fire the first shot was also cited.”
“In this warzone, in this chaos that was occurring in the middle of Wisconsin, the only individuals that Kyle shot were the three individuals that were putting him at risk of serious bodily harm or death. This is a 17-year-old kid, this is amazing,” Pierce said.
Public support for Rittenhouse is still forbidden on most – if not all – Big Tech social media platforms, despite the fact that the case is a trending issue on social media, and a significant amount of video footage that Rittenhouse supporters claim exonerates the teen has been released by mainstream media outlets.
Michelle Malkin’s Twitter feed has a lot of photos and questions about the “orange vest person” who appears to be an approved Antifa photog.
In this video clip, Matt Doloff, the shooter, seems to be flying “wingman” for another person with the orange “tactical tell” backpack.
These are, IMHO, Antifa leadership stripes. We see these orange vests, orange straps, etc etc, over and over, city to city. The people withe the orange vests or straps/packs are never hassled by Antifa, even when they are doing close-range photography. Other times, “orange vest” Antifas appear when an Antifa/BLM is getting out of control, to chill them out, to prevent “bad optics.”
In this pre-shooting clip, watch “orange vest person” on the left signal with his hand to his face, his head on a swivel, then he loops behind Doloff and “orange backpack,” just before the shooting. @WRSA
Twitter: “Video of shooter walking up to the incident. Looking very sketchy.”
You know it’s getting bad when you can’t find .22LR in the denomination you prefer….
Sure, there’s .22LR out there, but even the cheap crap is .13 cents per round or more….let alone some of the more accurate breeds….RWS Special Match, which I use in my Ruger Precision Rim Fire is up to .50 or more per round….if and when you can find it!! All I’ve found is ‘extended back orders with no ETA’….
Yup….when .22LR is scarce, there’s a significant shortage….
So far, it’s only the ‘Honey Badger’ model, but I’m sure more will follow. Make sure you write your congress critters and President Trump and tell them the whimsical actions of the BATFE against LAWFUL gun owners on a previous legal, and interpreted to be so by the BATFE on several occasions.
If this is allowed to stand, about 5 million or more law abiding citizens become felons overnight.
Timing on this is telling, especially when many top ATF managers/executives were appointed by Obama and Holder.
Apropos, especially in these days of scant supplies in regard to rifles, pistols, mags and ammo.
I have two direct experiences with friends, who, having had been urged and urged by me to get their AR, a coupla cases of 5.56, at least a baker’s dozen of mags, a good pistol, mags and appropriate ammo when it was CHEEP and PLENTIFUL, like last year, waited until between July and September.
Friend A paid a dollar a round for .40 JHP for 500 rounds; over $800 for an AR that would have cost about $450/$500 year ago, and $12 ea for AR mags. $500 for optics that would have cost $100 or more less last year, and .90 per round for 500 5.56 rounds. This friend went back and got 500 more.
Total outlay that I know about: $2,800, give or take, not counting taxes and/or shipping.
Friend B waited, purchased basically the same thing, and that friend’s total was closer to $4,000.
Lesson Learned: If, in the future, some friend of yours is telling you to pick up some cases of ammo when it’s .38 per round, simply do it. When the friend tells you to pick up a couple AR’s on sale, do it.
There’ll be a lot less tears later.
Now, at least, they’re both armed, and in the midst of being trained. They will be able to protect themselves and families much better than they could previously.
And THAT is where the value of the product far exceeds any price paid in FRN’s.
In a recent poll, 61 % of Americans said we’re on the verge of civil war. What’s coming is cataclysmic, but there are better ways to describe it. Instead of civil war, think revolution.
Some believed the proletarian revolution was coming in the 1930s, during the Great Depression – others, during the rise of the New Left in the 1960s.
But they were only sparks that never ignited.
What was kindled decades ago, now has burst into flames.
The pieces are all in place: rioting without end, war on the police, government complicity with anarchy, one party firmly in the grasp of revolutionaries, ongoing efforts to erase our history, radicals with a death-grip on the culture and an election from which there could be no turning back. To view any of these elements in isolation would be a tragic mistake.
The riots following the death of George Floyd have been anything but spontaneous. They were planned and organized by Black Lives Matter, Antifa and others. The founders of BLM describe themselves as “trained Marxists.”
Every time there are charges of police brutality (given the sort of characters the police are forced to deal with on a daily basis, these are inevitable), the switch is thrown: first come the useful idiots with their signs and slogans, then the outside agitators (with U-Hauls disgorging riot gear), then the looting and burning, then the assaults on police, then the calls to defund the police and on and on.
The goal is chaos, leading to uncertainty, apprehension and politicians willing to give the terrorists whatever they want to buy peace. What they want is to raze this country and build something resembling Cuba or Venezuela on the ruins. That’s how the Biden camp intends to Build Back Better.
The police have taken the brunt of this. According to a story in the September 26th New York Post, in New York City alone, 472 officers have been injured in rioting — 319 seriously enough to be hospitalized. Across the country, cops have been shot, stabbed, burned and run over with cars.
Police retirements have reached a record high. Police chiefs have resigned and ordinary crime has soared. Calls to defund the police grow. Biden wants to put shrinks in squad cars to help the police deal with domestic violence.
Cops are our first line of defense against the jungle. Joseph Wambaugh called them The New Centurions in his 1971 novel of the same title. Crippling law enforcement is an all-important step on the road to revolution.
Democratic mayors and governors are complicit. In September, the Department of Justice designated New York City, Seattle and Portland jurisdictions where “local governments … are permitting anarchy, violence and destruction.”
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler refused to allow police to use tear gas to dispel rioters. (The city’s chief of police rhetorically asked, “How much violence is enough?”) The mayor of Seattle allowed Antifa to occupy an historic area of the city for a month.
In the first Presidential Debate, Joe Biden declared, “I am the Democratic Party right now.” When queried if he’d asked Democratic mayors to address the rioting more forcefully, he responded, in effect: What can I do. I’m a private citizen? That’s how much the Biden Party wants urban anarchy to end.
Prosecutors elected by George Soros’ PACs refuse to prosecute rioters, who are often back on the streets in a matter of hours. St Louis City Attorney Kimberly Gardner was elected with $190,00 of Soros money and reelected with $119,000. A police official described his department’s relationship with her as “abysmal.” Gardner is prosecuting a couple for defending their home with guns, while refusing to charge the trespassers who were menacing them.
Kamala Harris tweeted out a link to a group raising bail money for Minnesota rioters. Biden campaign workers contributed themselves. Biden described Antifa as “an idea.” Try to imagine Churchill calling the brown shirts “an idea.”
Biden’s condemnation of the war on civilization is worse than nothing at all.
After avoiding the matter for months, at last, when the polls turned against him on the issue, he disavowed “all forms of violence,” while refusing to condemn Black Lives Matter or Antifa (which is a fantasy, after all). He equated isolated instances of police misconduct (“police violence”) and mythical “right-wing militia groups” with the Marxists and anarchists who have set our cities ablaze. How can you spot the white supremacist at a race riot? He’s the one on the ground, bleeding from multiple wounds.
Public schools and higher education are the breeding grounds for the next generation of incendiaries. As the president said in his July 4 Mt. Rushmore speech: “Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but were villains.”
When they’re not distorting history, our schools simply refuse to teach it. In one survey, only 27% of those under 45 years of age had a basic understanding of U.S. history. Only one in three could correctly identify the three branches of government.
Indoctrination (like the 1619 project) is complimented by the steady stream of anti-American, anti-Caucasian propaganda from Hollywood, and the wealth of Fortune 500 firms poured into Black Lives Matter. They’re marching through the institutions — from the classroom to the newsroom, to the screening room to the boardroom.
Against this backdrop we face the most consequential election of our lifetime, now less than 30 days away.
The Democratic Party is ruled by the revolutionary left. Vice President Biden is its Marshal Petain – the smiling, doddering old fool. Sanders, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talaib, Schumer and Pelosi will pull the strings behind the scene.
If they win, Antifa and BLM will be used to attack and intimidate opponents of the regime — morphing from storm troopers to S.S. Resistance will be labeled racism.
With statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico (and who knows where else), court-packing and ending the filibuster, our system of government will be permanently altered to assure that this election will be the last real election.
Like France in 1789, Russia in 1917 and Germany in 1932, we stand at the brink. Thank God Trump is no Louis XVI.
Don’t think civil war. Think firing squads, gulags and death camps. Think the Black Lives Matter flag flying over the White House and Capitol.
I just posted this comment to the below article at FrontPageMag. The quote is the concluding sentence of the essay, that I used to begin my reply.
“Don’t think civil war. Think firing squads, gulags and death camps. Think the Black Lives Matter flag flying over the White House and Capitol.”
That might be the DemSocRat Party concept of operations, but it won’t happen.
Americans are armed to the teeth, and half of us (at least) are still patriots who do understand the lessons of history, and the evil record of Communism, with its 100 million (at least) victims of mass murder and intentional starvation.
Another country that has historically been well armed is Switzerland. Everybody can cite that they have never suffered a foreign invasion as a result. Fewer understand that the Swiss have also never been ruled by a despot. Despots cannot rule where millions of sharpshooters would have them and their henchmen in their sights and scopes.
In the USA, patriots will fight back. This is why tens of millions of us have purchased AR-15s in the past decade alone. (Almost every one of them mounts an optical sight making them accurate to 100s of yards. And I have not even mentioned many more millions of scoped “deer rifles” capable of accurate fire at 500 yards and beyond.) Anticipation of this attempted Communist revolution and resulting civil war is why shelves are empty of ammunition. My friends don’t count their ammunition by the dozens or hundreds, but by the case, that is, by the thousands of rounds.
Millions of us have military training. Tens of thousands of us (at least) have training in special operations, insurgency/counter-insurgency, and urban warfare. Every former Green Beret, Ranger or SEAL can create platoons of trained guerrilla fighters: for the Army Special Forces, this always was and still is their primary mission. (We just never expected them to need to put this skill to use at home in a struggle against Communist revolutionaries, but here we are, for all the reasons the author cited.)
Patriots will be “stay behinds” embedded in every government office. Information and plans about purges, raids or gulags will be leaked to the “free forces.” Any FLEAs (federal law enforcement agents) stupid enough to participate in gun confiscation raids will find ambushes around every corner, based on their operations being compromised by patriots. Every FLEA who takes part in Communist-ordered purges or gun raids will find themselves hunted down like the oath-breaking traitors that they are.
There will be no gulags in America. There might be a bloody civil war, but there will be no gulags.
