In Chicago, Putin’s spetsnaz infiltrators do a little undocumented shopping:

I can remember when this Nike store on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile opened around 1993, soon after the 1992 Rodney King Riot in L.A. and the sizable Michael Jordan Riot in June 1992 to celebrate the Bulls’ second NBA title. Because it would, obviously, be the favorite target of future looters, it was built like a fortress, with all sorts of rails and grills to keep looters out. But it looks like in the calmer years between then and now, store management got overconfident and rebuilt it into a friendlier-looking storefront. Oh, well …

    Oh, no, don't get Mr. Sailer started on his Theodora "trope" again!

    Interestingly, the riots, which were largely defeated by Belisarius, preceded the massive wars of adventurism that saw defeat of the Vandals in Africa and the Gothic Arian rule in Italy (in effect, restoring the role of the Pope in Italy during the Exarchate) by Belisarius and Narses, plus what amounted to another stalemate with the Persians. That was a massive recovery in short order from Justinian's riotous near-overthrow. And it just about bankrupted the Eastern Roman Empire. The Plague didn't help much either.

    Then again, how would history have been different if the Vandals were still in Africa to fight the Saracens?

  34. What is it with blacks and Nikes? The shoes seem to have some kind of totemic significance for them.

    There’s a case of a teenager being murdered for a pair of sneakers in DQ Wilber’s A Good Month for Murder, about a month he spent covering police work in St George’s County DC. Perps and victim were all black. The cops ask the black woman in the house beside the murder scene if she heard anything unusual.

    “No”
    “No gunshot?”
    “Oh, apart from the gunshot, no.”
    “You heard the gunshot?”
    “No, I was on the phone with my headphones on. The person I was talking to heard it and told me”.

    Indeed. It would be nice if our knowledge of the time was not so reliant upon a single historian. But for the next couple of centuries, there wasn't even an equivalent of Procopius!

    But my main point is, even for empires in clear decline experiencing civil unrest, that does not necessarily even stop foreign wars of choice.

    Also, incidentally, if you want to look at a classic case of a defeated and demoralized people, a prime example must be 6th century Rome. The Eastern Romans/Byzantines came to restore Italy from the Goths, and the Romans could not even be bothered to take up arms alongside them in defense of their own city.

  44. Steve, maybe your story about the (not so) new Comiskey’s dual role will be proved correct. By the way, tsk tsk on the Obama- esque Comiskey ‘field’ in that linked article.

    I think a good SAT analogy question would be along the lines of Blacks:Air Jordans as Conservative Inc. : the Constitution. Each object seems to be a powerful magical totem for its respective idolators. D’Shontavius thinks by donning the shoes, he will suddenly be able to do 360 degree, between the legs, over the head dunks with his eyes closed. Charlie Kirk thinks a perusal of the founding parchments will turn Miguel into a modern day mestizo Patrick Henry.

  47. How is the Hispanics vs looting Blacks and Antifa in Miami going now?

    I take it Hispanics are behaving OK in Southern California. Seems like the 1991 Black Rodney King riots was pretty much the last gasp of Black AA criminal mobs.

  48. I was astounded by the shear incompetence of CPD last night in Chicago.

    Instead of the expected:

    we got from our new lesbian Black Mayor Lorrie Lightfoot and Black CPD Chief David Brown:

    The CPD let Macy’s (aka Marshall Fields) actually get LOOTED. F****ing incredible. They set fire to Central Camera on Wabash. Target. No arsonists shot.

    Totally. F-ing. Useless.

    Black Mayor, CPD Chief, State’s Attorney.

    Incompetent. Useless. Incompetent. Useless.

    Listening to some WBBM-TV (Channel 2) Black reporter yesterday and he was talking about how the police were practicing ‘deescalation’; BULLSHIT. They surrendered the City to the communists.
