Police State Power Grab The Collapse

End runs

Let’s say that the police want to search your home, but they don’t have the probable cause needed to get a warrant. So to solve this “problem” they come up with a plan. They have a criminal on speed dial who they recently caught committing a burglary do them a favor in exchange for the cops not arresting them. In this case, the burglar breaks into your house then anonymously calls the police to report seeing a dead body in the home. Or perhaps bomb making material. It doesn’t matter what he claims to have seen. This call falls under one of the exceptions that would allow the police to enter your home.

That’s a dick move, right? Would you consider that to be a violation of your Constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure? In this case, the police didn’t have the legal ability to search your home, so they got another person to do it on their behalf.

Isn’t having a private business violate your First Amendment rights the same thing?

The “liberal” or “progressive” stance has always been that free speech is only about state suppression, not about private companies or individuals.

The argument has always been that Facebook/Twitter/Google etc. are private companies that have every right to decide what appears on their platforms. Of course, if the state is actively instructing the private companies on what to remove…that argument crumbles to dust.

Now do a little thinking and let me know what other Constitutional rights are being subverted because the government has enlisted others to do the violating.

Only one

The US government has decided that only their employees can be called astronauts, unless you do what they say.

According to the FAA, space explorers must go through training and fly beyond 80 kilometres above the Earth surface as a flight crew on a permitted launch or reentry vehicle to be considered an astronaut. They also must have “demonstrated activities during flight that were essential to public safety, or contributed to human space flight safety.”

By that definition, there were no US astronauts from 2011 to 2019, since all Americans who went into space in that time period were passengers on Russian spacecraft.

Not a toy

Florida man accidentally shoots himself while playing with his pistol in a bar.

  • Carrying a firearm without a permit
  • Illegal discharge of a firearm
  • Being a complete and utter dipshit

AWB propaganda?

It looks like the press is about to begin beating the “easily converted” drum to have semi autos declared to be NFA. What do you think, do these look like DIAS for ARs?

Fascism

New Mexico and Tennessee have something in common. New Mexico’s Supreme Court decided to hold gas stations accountable for the acts of drunk drivers. The theory is that a drunk driver couldn’t get in an accident if he didn’t have the gas to drive around. This is the same theory that lies at the heart of suing gun manufacturers for the acts of a mass shooter: companies are now responsible for the criminal misuse of their products, bars for serving people who get drunk and then get in an accident on the way home.

This policy deflects responsibility from the person who committed the act onto a third party who had little to nothing to do with what happened. This is something that “no recovery/no fee” ambulance chasing trial lawyers LOVE. Drunk drivers generally don’t have deep pockets. Gas stations, bars, and their insurance companies do.

It flips liability on its head, in that companies engaged in legal commerce are now charged with law enforcement. This is a path to tyranny, and appears to be the perfect end run around the restrictions placed upon our government by the Constitution. Want to enforce an unconstitutional edict? Use the courts to create a liability upon companies. Their corporate policies will make a defacto law.

We saw that happen in the 1980s. For those of you old enough to remember, every newspaper in America used to have a firearms section of the classifieds. People could run an ad in the paper, advertising their personally owned firearm for sale, and sell it there. It was kind of like Gunbroker, but every newspaper in the country used to participate. I bought my very first handgun that way, a Smith and Wesson Model 59.

So what happened? Newspapers decided that they would no longer allow ads for firearms.

This policy will have far reaching consequences, and it will allow the courts to shape our nation in multiple ways. Now any liberal judge will be able to apply this doctrine to any business or industry that they wish to see destroyed.

Business and government, working together for tyranny. That is the very definition of Mussolini Fascism, the granting of powers to business.

Back again

The good thing about working where I do is that our normal shift is three- twelve hour days per week. I managed to get the schedule worked, so that I had to work the first three days of the week and the last three days of this week. I refused to work overtime these two weeks. That left me with a continuous eight days scheduled off. I used those eight days to travel to Maine for some fishing.

I have a cabin up there. I keep a boat and some supplies up there. So I went fishing. My wife and in-laws left two weeks before I flew up to join them. We caught bass, pickerel, white perch, yellow perch, and chub. We threw everything back. The fishing up there is incredible. If you aren’t catching a fish every couple of minutes, you need to check your line to see if it’s baited.

The weather was a nice escape from Florida’s oppressive July heat. It was 20+ degrees cooler the entire time we were there. There is a lack of technology in the entire state, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s tough to get any internet there by cell, and even hardline based is slow and unreliable across the entire state, with the exception of the southeast part of the state.

Maine’s future doesn’t look good. I have been fishing there each summer for a decade, and I can see that the cities on the coast are being filled with refugees from the liberal cities of the northeast, especially Boston and New York City. They just made all plastic bags illegal, the cities of Maine are papered and painted in the new rainbow flags, and the laws are slipping to the left. The inland counties hate it. The people I talked to up there don’t want it, but the coastal cities are driving a hard run to the left.

The inland areas are still using plastic bags, still not dying their hair blue, and are resisting, but that won’t last long.

Now it’s time to go back to work.

Missed deadline

I am currently fishing on the Penobscot River, just a few miles south of the Canadian border. There isn’t much in the way of cell service up here, and since you are reading this, it means that I didn’t get today’s post done due to lack of internet access.

Tax filing

I find it ironic that this article makes the claim that Intuit is “screwing over” taxpayers by charging them to use its products without mentioning how it is the government screwing over taxpayers by making the product necessary in the first place.

Misleading press

Here is an article about people who are in jail because they haven’t paid fines stemming from previous criminal convictions. The reporters frame it as debtor’s prison in more than one article, claiming that “they wouldn’t be in jail if they were rich.”

There is a difference between consumer debt and fines. If a person says they can’t pay a fine, what other penalties are available?

Ferals

The skateboard wielding Antifa terrorist in this video admits to committing a felony. He admits on camera to using hairspray as a weapon. Since the label on that can says it is a violation of Federal law to use that product in a manner inconsistent with its instructions, spraying it on a camera or in someone else’s face is a Federal crime.

Not only that, but I have seen enough skateboards used as weapons to consider everyone wielding one as a threat.

All of this to protect the “rights” of a tranny to show his dick to little girls in a public bathroom.
