From the New York Post:

Seattle pays ex-pimp $150,000 to offer ‘alternatives to policing’
By Lee Brown September 22, 2020 | 8:28am | Updated

Seattle now has a convicted pimp who once vowed to “go to war” with the city on its payroll — a $150,000 “Street Czar,” whose mission is to come up with “alternatives to policing,” reports said.

Andre Taylor — who appeared in the documentary “American Pimp” about his life as “Gorgeous Dre” — is getting $12,500 per month for a year, along with an office in Seattle’s Municipal Tower, according to the contract published by PubliCola.

It comes just a year after his organization, Not This Time, was paid $100,000 to sponsor a speaker series that was called “Conversations with the Streets.”

Taylor led one of the first rallies in Seattle after the police-custody death of George Floyd, the Seattle Times said.

He was later accused of trying to get millions from the city for militants who set up the controversial police-free Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone, the Seattle Times said.

“Don’t just leave. Leave with something,” he told activists in a meeting caught in a recording, telling them to demand $2 million to exit the hub of much of the city’s worst violence this year, the report said. They ignored his advice, the paper said, with one saying the money grab felt “off.”

Those same militants then accused him of betraying the, too, when he appeared at a press conference with the mayor to tell them to shut-down CHOP — the same day he was given his six-figure contract, the paper said.

The new Street Czar justified the contract to KOMO News as payment for his “particular genius in a particular area” — saying he can talk to “gang members, pimps and prostitutes” who “won’t sit down with anybody else.”

“Black people as a whole have not been in a place to be compensated for their genius or their work for a very very long time,” he said.

“Not too many people can go talk to gangbangers in their territory, and then go talk to the government in their territory,” Taylor also told the Seattle Times.

From Tom Wolfe’s 1970 book Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers:

Whites were still in the dark about the ghettos. They had been studying the “urban Negro” in every way they could think of for fifteen years, but they found out they didn’t know any more about the ghettos than when they started. Every time there was a riot, whites would call on “Negro leaders” to try to cool it, only to find out that the Negro leaders didn’t have any followers. They sent Martin Luther King into Chicago and the people ignored him. They sent Dick Gregory into Watts and the people hooted at him and threw beer cans. During the riot in Hunters Point, the mayor of San Francsco, John Shelley, went into Hunters Point with the only black member of the Board of Supervisors, and the brothers threw rocks at both of them. They sent in the middle-class black members of the Human Rights Commission, and the brothers laughed at them and called them Toms.

Then they figured the leadership of the riot was “the gangs,” so they sent in the “ex-gang leaders” from groups like Youth for Service to make a “liaison with the key gang leaders.” What they didn’t know was that Hunters Point and a lot of ghettos were so disorganized, there weren’t even any “key gangs,” much less “key gang leaders,” in there. That riot finally just burnt itself out after five days, that was all.

But the idea that the real leadership in the ghetto might be the gangs hung on with the poverty-youth-welfare establishment. It was considered a very sophisticated insight. The youth gangs weren’t petty criminals … they were “social bandits,” primitive revolutionaries … Of course, they were hidden from public view. That was why the true nature of ghetto leadership had eluded everyone for so long … So the poverty professionals were always on the lookout for the bad-acting dudes who were the “real leaders,” the “natural leaders,” the “charismatic figures” in the ghetto jungle. These were the kind of people the social-welfare professionals in the Kennedy Administration had in mind when they planned the poverty program in the first place. It was a truly adventurous and experimental approach they had. Instead of handing out alms, which never seemed to change anything, they would encourage the people in the ghettos to organize. They would help them become powerful enough to force the Establishment to give them what they needed. From the beginning the poverty program was aimed at helping ghetto people rise up against their oppressors. It was a scene in which the federal government came into the ghetto and said, “Here is some money and some field advisors. Now you organize your own pressure groups.” It was no accident that Huey Newton and Bobby Seale drew up the ten-point program of the Black Panther Party one night in the offices of the North Oakland Poverty Center. …

And how could they find out the identity of these leaders of the people? Simple. In their righteous wrath they would rise up and confront you. It was a beautiful piece of circular reasoning. The real leaders of the ghetto will rise up and confront you … Therefore, when somebody rises up in the ghetto and confronts you, then you know he’s a leader of the people. So the poverty program not only encouraged mau-mauing, it practically demanded it. Subconsciously, for administrators in the poverty establishment, public and private, confrontations became a ritual. That was the way the system worked. By 1968 it was standard operating procedure. To get a job in the post office, you filled out forms and took the civil-service exam. To get into the poverty scene, you did some mau-mauing. If you could make the flak catchers lose control of the muscles around their mouths, if you could bring fear into their faces, your application was approved.

Back to the Post in 2020:

As Street Czar, his contract tasks him to “provide recommendations to the City on de-escalation, community engagement, and alternatives to policing.”

Mayor Jenny Durkan’s spokesperson Kelsey Nyland told the Seattle Times the contract was offered because of an “existing working partnership.”

Taylor’s group was chosen because of its “lived experience with the criminal legal system, and their history of successful advocacy and activism on issues of policing and dismantling systemic racism,” Nyland added, noting that the city is spending millions this year on similar contracts with various groups.

From Mau-Mauing:

Sometimes a group of buddies who ran together, who were “stone pimp,” as the phrase went, would move straight into the poverty program. They would do some fabulous, awesome, inspired mau-mauing, and the first thing you knew, they would be hanging out in the poverty scene. The middle-class bureaucrats, black and white, would never know what do make of an organization like this. They couldn’t figure them out. There was one organization in a city just outside of San Francisco, in the kind of section that catches the bums, the winos, the prostitutes with the biscuits & gravy skin, the gay boys, the flaming lulus, the bike riders, the porno shops, peep shows, $8-a-week hotels with the ripped window shades flapping out. This area had everything you needed for a successful application for a poverty-program grant except for the one thing you need the most, namely, the militant youth. So that was when a remarkable ace known as Dudley showed up with a couple of dozen bonafide spurious aristocrats … his Ethnic Catering Service for skid row … There wasn’t one of them that looked much under thirty, and nobody had ever heard of any black youth in that area before anyway, but they could mau-mau as if they had been trained by the great Chaser himself … They got a grant of nearly $100,000.

Every now and then the poverty bureaucrats from the Economic Opportunity Council or from City Hall would hold an area executive board meeting or some other kind of session at their clubhouse, and it was always a bear.

There would be Dudley and his boys … Dudley, with his Fuzzy-Wuzzy natural and his welts. Dudley was a powerful man with big slabs of muscle like Sonny Liston and these long welts, like the welted seams on top of a pair of moccasins, on his cheeks, his neck, on the backs of his fists. These welts were like a historical map of fifteen years of Saturday night knife-fighting in the Bay Area. …

Dudley was the fiercest looking man in the Bay Area, but there would be him and all his boys sitting around like a covey of secretary birds.

That was the pimp look, the look of hip and supercool and so fine. The white bureaucrats, and the black ones, too, walked in trying to look as earthy and rugged as they could, in order to be “with the people.” They tried to walk in like football players, like they had a keg of beer between their legs. They rounded their shoulders over so it made their necks look bigger. … But the pimp-style aristocrats had taken the manhood thing through so many numbers that it was beginning to come out through the other side. To them, by now, being hip was striking poses that were so cool, so languid, they were almost feminine. It was like saying, “We’ve got masculinity to spare.” We’ve been through so much shit, we’re so confident of our manhood, we’re so hip and so suave and wise in the ways of the street, that we can afford to be refined and not sit around here trying to look like a bunch of stud brawlers. So they would not only cross their legs, they’d cross them further than a woman would. They would cross them so far, it looked like one leg was wrapped around the other one three or four times. One leg would seem to wrap around the other one and disappear in the back of the knee socket. And they’d be leaning forward in the chair with their heads cocked to one side and their chins hooked over their collarbones and their shades riding low on their noses, and they’d be peering out over the upper rim of the shades. And they’d have one hand cocked in front of their chins, hanging limp at the wrist with the forefinger sticking out like like some kind of curved beak.

They would look like one of those supercool secretary birds that stand around on one long A-1 racer leg with everything else drawn up into a beautiful supercool little bunch of fluffy feathers at the top.

… Anyway, the dude comes lollygagging in, as cool as you please, and walks over to where Dudley is sitting like a secretary bird and leans over and whispers something to him. …

“Say what, man?” says Dudley. “Don’t you see I’m trying to hold a con-fer-ence in here?”

“But like man,” says the Dude, “this is ve-ry im-por-tant.”

“What the hell you into that’s so im-por-tant, sucker?”

“Well, man, just wait a min-ute and let me tell you. You know that wino, Half and Half, that hangs out in the alley?”

“Yeah, I know him.”

“Well, man, he’s out there in the alley trying to burn down the buil-ding.”

Dudley doesn’t even move at first. He just peers out over his shades at his boys and at all the bureaucrats from downtown, and then he cocks his head and cocks his index finger in front of his chin and says, “We gonna have a tem-po-rary re-cess. The brother ask me to take care some business.”

Then Dudley unwinds very casually and stands up, and he and the brother start walking toward the back door, but so cool and so slow, with the whole rolling gait, that it looks like Marcel Marceau doing one of those walks where he doesn’t actually move off the spot he started on. They open the door like they’re going out to check out the weather, but once they’re on the other side–whoosh!–it’s like somebody lit their after-burners. They’re up those stairs like a rocket and out into the alley and on top of the wino, Half and Half, in just under one half a second.

… The old crock hates these black studs who have turned up down on his skid-row cul-de-sac, and he keeps trying to burn up the building. He has a big pile of paper and excelsior and other stuff shoved up against the wall and he has it smoldering in a kind of fogged-in wino way, trying to in-cin-e-rate the mother.

All of that is going on outside in the alley. From inside the clubhouse at first there’s nothing: silence. Then you start to hear a sound that sounds like there is a paddlewheel from off a Mississippi steamboat out there in the alley, and to every paddle is attached a size 12E motorcycle boot, and as the wheel goes around every one of these boots hits the wino … thunk … thunk … whop … whump … thunk … thunk … whop … whump …

And then the white bureaucrats look at the black bureaucrats and the black bureaucrats look at the white bureaucrats, and one of the bureaucrats who is dressed in the Roos-Atkins Ivy League clothes and the cordovan shoes starts going “Unh, unh, unh.” The thing is, the man thinks he doesn’t have any more middle-class Uncle Tom mannerisms and attributes, but he just can’t help going into that old preachery “Unh, unh, unh.”

thunk … thunk … whop … whump …

“Unh, unh, unh.”

thunk … thunk … whop … whump …

“Unh, unh, unh.”

Then it stops and the door opens again, and Dudley and the Dude come walking back in even slower and more cool except for the fact that they’re breathing hard, and they take their seats and cross their legs and get wound back up and cocked and perched, and Dudley peers out over his shades and says, “The meeting is resumed.”

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Taylor was living large with her drug dealer live in boyfriend. There was a warrant issued and the cops announced themselves. Boyfriend shot it out with the cops keeping it real. She got shot.

    We’ve all heard about Ronnie McNutt and Jake Gardner. Today I learned that an old friend of mine buried his brother over the weekend.

    It’s a familiar story: an Iraq vet blew his head off. He left behind a 15-year-old son and an unborn child.

    He had PTSD from having to kill a kid in Iraq who was running at them with an ied strapped to him or some shit. He got divorced around 2010-11. He developed financial and drug problems later, then I guess he got some girl pregnant that he didn’t love. I only met her last week. And according to my other brother he had apparently been told he had spots on his lungs also, idk.

    He had been in the VA a few weeks ago because he told my mom he was having suicidal thoughts

    It is my most fervent wish that the people responsible for the U.S. invasion of Iraq burn in Hell for all eternity.

    What happened to Taylor was tragic, however, it’s worth noting that the police insisted since the incident back in March that they (1) did not go to the ‘wrong’ apartment – her name was on the warrant, or (2) execute the warrant in “no knock” fashion, as the Kentucky AG said, the evidence from cameras and a neighbor eye witness is that they knocked and announced their presence before they were fired upon. It’s getting shot at from inside which led to their firing back in self defense and why they were not even indicted like ham sandwiches. Ironically and sadly, it is also the kind of messed up thing that happens and which in the attempt to avoid it is used to justify not knocking and announcing first.

    The family made both false claims, e.g., “thought they were being robbed”, and the media has run with this agitprop for six months despite the facts being available and easily verifiable the whole time, and indeed they are still repeating them.

Now Jenny Durkan, Seattle’s, present mayor, after allowing riots to take place in Seattle streets, has put a pimp on the City payroll, and soon the people of Seattle will replace her as mayor with Kshama Sawant, a Trotskyite from the Indian sub-continent.

    It’s kinda the way the Establishment views White working class people. As a weird alien group that must follow the dictates of somebody.

    There were calls for GOP “elders” to shut down the Trump phenom via pronouncement. The GOP leaders actually tried it. It didn’t work. It’s true that Whites are more orderly and in normal times get in line (especially the more orderly ones). But once things get to a certain point, they often self-organize in dangerous ways. See the Scots-Irish. See how Santa Anna misread the Anglo population in Texas.

    The underlying opportunity/threat is that our Establishment is clueless about most of the American population.

    An internal report written by Louisville Metro Police after officers fatally shot Breonna Taylor on March 13 sheds more light on the reasons why they chose to forcibly enter her South End apartment the night she was killed.

    It provides no explanations or evidence aimed at justifying the shooting…. But the 39-page report and corroborating evidence do show that Taylor had more extensive ties than previously made public with an accused drug trafficker who was at the center of a larger narcotics investigation in Louisville.

    The whole “War on Drugs” is a tragic exercise in absurdity.

    I have never tried illegal drugs, and I don’t think it is wise for anyone to do so.

    However, a very large number of people — and an awful lot of white people (including Hunter Biden) — are determined to use drugs. We’re not going to stop it as long as so many people are so determined to do it.

    So,, yeah, the whole mess with Breonna Taylor should never have happened.

    That being said…

    The absurdity of the War on Drugs is not the fault of low-level cops. It is the fault of legislators and, more broadly, the hypocrisy of society at large.

    And, critically, Taylor’s moronic boyfriend shot at cops!

    This is, at best, terminal stupidity.

    She should not have died, but there is plenty of blame to go around. And very little of it attaches to the cops.

    Pimps are, by definition, con artists who persuade women to grovel to pimps and give the pimp their own money. Well, guess what? Seattle has a city council of 9 people, six of whom are women, with hippy-dippy chick Jenny Durkan for mayor. Well, you know what they did? They groveled to a pimp like he’s their lord and master (Save us, oh Pimp, from disgrace that will destroy our left-wing political careers because the stupid blackamoors won’t leave us alone!) and they gave a pimp money, some of which (via taxes) comes out of their own earnings.

    The stupid leftist chicks are acting like pre-programmed biological bots that automatically kowtow to every pimp and to Give. Pimp. Money., exactly as if they’re his grovelling hos.

    Seattle is reminder that women should not be political leaders is this is how they think problems should be solved. Giving criminal blacks mafia-style protection money so blacks won’t attack whites! Sheesh. What a bunch of retards.

    From the sadly-left-behind-in-the-dust-by-tech-advances William Gibson’s “Pattern Recognition”

    Donny had been more problematic than most other Cayce Pollard boyfriends, and she has come to believe that this had all been signaled in the first place by the fact that he was called Donny. Donny was not something, a woman friend had pointed out, that the men they went out with were usually called. Donny was of Irish−Italian extraction, from East Lansing, and had both a drinking problem and no visible means of support. But Donny was also very beautiful, and sometimes very funny, though not always intentionally, and Cayce had gone through a period of finding herself, though she never really planned to, under Donny, and Donny’s big grin, in the none−too−fresh bed in his apartment on Clinton Street, between Rivington and Delancey.

    But this final and particular time, watching him phase−shift into what she’d learned to recognize as the run−up to one of his ever−reliable orgasms, she’d for some reason stretched her arms above her head, perhaps even luxuriously, her left hand sliding accidentally under the cockroach−colored veneer of the headboard. Where it encountered something cold and hard and very precisely made. Which she brailled, shortly, into the square butt of an automatic pistol held there, probably, with tape very similar to the tape she’d used here, this morning, to conceal the hole in her Buzz Rickson’s.

    Donny, she knew, was left−handed, and had so positioned this so that he could reach it conveniently as he lay in bed.

    Some very basic computational module instantly had completed the simplest of equations: if boyfriend sleeps with gun, Cayce does not share bed, or bod, with (now abruptly former) boyfriend.

    And so she’d lain there, her fingertip against what she assumed was the checkered hardwood of the gun’s grip, and watched Donny take his last ride on that particular pony.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/24/saudi-heir-and-jared-kushner-inch-kingdom-towards-deal-with-israel

    The heir to the Saudi throne views the region through a different lens to his predecessors, seeing Iranian expansionism as a bigger threat to stability than the seven-decade failure to bring about a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. According to two sources familiar with Prince Mohammed’s thinking, his views have been greatly influenced by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, since the two met in 2017.

    “Kushner was just as transactional as his father-in-law,” said one Saudi source. “He was all about user pays; if you back a cause, or a person, they need to have your back. It was a language MBS understood and he wasted little time applying it to new Saudi positions on Palestine and Lebanon, both of which had become a never-ending burden.”

    Later that year, the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, was summoned by Prince Mohammed to Riyadh and given a version of what a new Saudi-approved Palestine would look like.

    Abbas has never spoken publicly about the meeting, and has not been back to Saudi Arabia since. But Palestinian officials, who insisted on anonymity, like everyone else contacted by the Guardian for this story, said the plan put to the veteran Palestinian leader was a lot like the blueprint of Jared Kushner’s peace deal, which was presented earlier this year with little fanfare.

    “The crown prince told him Palestine could be Gaza and part of the Sinai, with a land bridge to what was left of the West Bank,” the official said. “The Egyptian president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, was involved in this obviously. It wasn’t a Saudi royal’s prerogative to be giving away part of Egypt without consent.”

    This is by Martin Chulov, another of those brave, wholly-owned Guardian types, so caveat emptor .

    Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

    Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas ….

    To wit:

    — $13 trillion with a T of lost revenue from lack of lending to African American entrepreneurs, LOL

    — $2.7 trillion lost because African Americans were paid lower wages

    — $218 billion with B due to redlining

    — Approximately $100 billion lost via blacks who were not admitted to universities and the signalling power thereof

    The commenters at …

    https://althouse.blogspot.com/2020/09/now-major-bank-has-put-price-tag-on-how.html

    Yeah, there’s a lot of “if the gaps are closed” in there—it’s not a study, it’s a fantasy.

    Do they assume that the average American Black IQ is 100?

    I read it. They don’t provide the underlying modeling data to get to the $16 trillion, just the summarized calculation which is understandable in a short publication. But, so many assumptions have to be made to quantify the final number that the range of outcomes.

    The conclusion is: “Why Gaps Exist: Racism and Inequality Are Little Improved”

    There you have it. E.g. it’s racism and inequality that causes an education gap, which leads to lesser representation in higher paying jobs. It’s not cultural in any way. The paper quantifies an effect for which the cause was pre-determined. Based on their own data, we apparently aren’t racist against hispanics.

    The report assumes rather than proves racial discrimination against blacks is the reason for the economic achievement gap between the white and black population in the United States. The bank report recommends a number of solutions which amount to taking money from people who it earned and giving it to black people who didn’t. How that grows the pie or makes up for the failure of blacks to be as productive as whites is missing. Shocking that the bank would allow this crap to be published under their name.

    I have never tried illegal drugs, and I don’t think it is wise for anyone to do so.

    However, a very large number of people — and an awful lot of white people (including Hunter Biden) — are determined to use drugs. We’re not going to stop it as long as so many people are so determined to do it.

    So,, yeah, the whole mess with Breonna Taylor should never have happened.

    Yeah, just stop enforcing laws. In drug dealing there are many concomitant crimes to not enforce as well. And what about all the crimes resulting from increased drug use? Violent crimes dropped 35% when drug dealers started receiving stiff prison sentences since early 80’s. Illegal drugs kill 45k per year in the U.S. And the costs to society are incalculable— from children to families to neighborhoods to the economy. But hey, at least we won’t have black swan Breonna Taylor cases or all the costs associated with enforcement and incarceration.

    There’s this concept called “Human Biodiversity”, HBD. So, a group of people, we’ll call them white people, hang out together, survive and prosper (some of them) and interbreed over many generations.

    The HBD part not only involves heritability in general appearance, but in psychology.

    These white people form organizations in which the roles are at least partly genetic. “Leadership” means something to these people.

    It was kind of a joke in the organization man 1950’s and thereafter. Even if you had a small company, you still had to have vice-presidents and executive vice-presidents, because otherwise you couldn’t have meetings with big companies. Vice-presidents only talked to vice-presidents, you see.

    It’s a masterpiece of Times spin. It goes on and on about the young lady’s hopes and dreams. Then it starts to sketch in some factual details and you start to get confused about her two boyfriends. Finally the wagon comes completely of the wheels way deep down in the piece, where we learn that she was making prison phone calls, bailing out “associates” of her imprisoned drug dealer boyfriend, who was also visiting her apartment … But wait, doesn’t she have another boyfriend, the trigger happy one? … And she was photographed at the other raided place, and oh a local paper just got ahold of tapes of her prison phone calls, and so on.

    And apparently the cops and prosecutors still have not released all their evidence. The feds are investigating, which will produce a Ferguson like result, I predict: No charges against the cops, but as a face saver the police department will have to do anti bias training or something.

    I agree entirely with the Grand Jury verdict in this case. However, although Taylor was living with her drug dealing boyfriend, the warrant the police executed was for another drug dealer living at another address a good distance away. The warrant was also a “no knock” warrant so the police did not announce themselves before breaking in. Witnesses all testify that the police did not announce themselves.

    I don’t know about you but if a gang of strangers broke into my house early in the morning shouting and screaming, I’d reach for my (legal) pistol, give them a warning and then start shooting in self-defense. At that point I wouldn’t care what excuses the intruders shouted back at me, particularly if they were firing back in volleys, wounded me and killed my girlfriend.

    This is why “no knock” warrants are a bad idea. They are also prima facie unconstitutional; just one more erosion of our rights which our globalist elites justify as being in our best interests. The so called “war on drugs’ was an early, handy excuse for violating our rights and liberties, even before the “war on terror” became another useful excuse. “No knock” warrants first appeared in the 1970s as the “war on drugs” began, one of the first results of that war. Senator Paul has introduced legislation to severely restrict if not outlaw their use.

    It’s interesting and important to look behind the scenes of what’s going on — e.g. among other things to ‘follow the money’.

    Twitter/Cassandra FairbanksU-Haul Seen Distributing Shields, Weapons to Louisville Rioters Rented to Holly Zoller of Louisville Bail Project (many board members were soros fellows)

    The Louisville Bail Project is the local office of the larger/national organization The Bail Project — per their 2019 Annual Report, The Bail Project was founded by former NYC public defender (and Jew) Robin Steinberg — basically, its mission is to bail out black criminals and to stigmatize their charging/jailing as somehow systematically unfair/unjust (‘a system that marginalized entire neighborhoods and devastated communities of color’; read Steinberg’s note) — looking at their funding (see ’09 Our Donors’/pg 40), in 2019 they got > $5m (!) from Blue Meridian Partners, an organization ostensibly primarily interested in ameliorating child poverty, and formerly known as Edna McConnell Clark Foundation (link) — the name McConnell comes from David H. McConnell, the founder of Avon Products.

    So a foundation that represents (at least part of) the legacy of David H. McConnell, founder of Avon Products, a company that grew by selling beauty and household products to ‘nice white ladies’, now gives millions every year to bail out ghetto Blacks (as well as, apparently, to provide ‘rioters’ ‘peaceful protesters’ in Louisville with ‘shields’ and ‘weapons’).

    Entire PNW coastal zone has severe vitamin D deficiency. It is what it is.

    Some intrepid people ought to do a study on the connection between vitamin D deficiency and extreme left wing political views

    White people in areas like the NW also meet fewer people due to being indoor so much of the time. So more angry cat moms is what it breaks down to.

    This year we have a strong La Nina cycle in the Pacific. Unfortunately pretty sure that means the jetstream hovers over PNW all winter.

    If you look at voting maps you will see that cities like Seattle, Tacoma and Portland pretty much dominate the entire area.

    Meaning small but dense areas of liberals set the agenda for larger regional areas that would happily kick them back to California if possible. Colorado now has the same problem with Denver.

    Taylor was living large with her drug dealer live in boyfriend. There was a warrant issued and the cops announced themselves. Boyfriend shot it out with the cops keeping it real. She got shot.

    Not quite. But the truth will have to wait, since the cops and prosecutors are withholding information.

    The trigger-happy boyfriend was a second guy who has not been adequately identified, profession-wise. The drug dealer ex-boyfriend was in prison, I think. She was talking to him open on the phone, and there are recordings. The sleepover boyfriend shot one shot and it wounded a cop. The cops didn’t announce themselves because it was a no-knock warrant, and they used a battering ram. The cops thought she was alone, due to a surveillance gap. I’ve read the local paper’s timeline and the NYT report, and there are a lot of unanswered questions, such as the location of $18,000 in drug cash that the con says she had in the apartment, to pay bail for him and his friends.

    “The stupid leftist chicks are acting like pre-programmed biological bots that automatically kowtow to every pimp and to Give. Pimp. Money., exactly as if they’re his grovelling hos.

    Seattle is reminder that women should not be political leaders is this is how they think problems should be solved.”

    Like all gimlet-eyed realists, Lanz von Liebenfels, “the man who gave Hitler his ideas,” has been treated as a wild-eyed psycho. 2020 proves him to have been a prophet. From his master work, Theozoology (1905):

    “Women can only make up for the sin of Eve through reasonable love, devoid of ape-nature (Timothy 2.15). Woman indulged in more Sodomite lust, therefore she must suffer more today — especially at the hands of the sons of the Sodomite lovers of her mother.”

    Prefiguring today’s man-o-sphere, Lanz demands that “their quite strange preference for Satyr-like — so-called ‘interesting men’ — must be obviated as much as possible.” Men however will also be called on to do their duty; the natural choosiness of the Aryan male “must be further developed and expanded in a systematic way so that husbands will only be potent with their own wives, and with all other women they will be impotent in the literal sense.”

    At the same time, we must —

    “Intensely fight against the intrusion of women into public life. The ultimate outcome of these efforts would be. . . unilateral women’s rights, which would make the world into a brothel in which everything revolves around penises and pussies in a silly and absurd satyrs’ orgy while the proper wife, the loyal mother of the house, and the healthy strong troop of children will be mercilessly driven out of the chaste and legitimate home.”

    “No one other than those women with their lascivious ape-like natures destroyed the cultures of antiquity and they will bring down our culture as well if men do not stop and think soon.”

    Extreme? Provocative? Indeed. Yet, as we see in today’s media the BLM mobs composed almost entirely of black males and white women (with a handful of what Lanz would perhaps call “soyim”), the mobs of white women proudly holding signs reading “Welcome Immigrants,” the TikTok exhibitionists and OnlyFans whores advertising for black audiences, and the horde of she-mayors and she-governors and she-prime ministers imposing more and ever-greater restrictions “because virus,” one may find oneself saying. . . “up to a point, Lord Copper.”

    This is merely another reason why the “war on (some) drugs” is a failure. Possession of ANY substance should never be a crime.

    That has already been tried in SF. Possession of heroin is de facto legal and it has been a disaster. Liberals of SF thought they could fix the problem by tolerating it.

    Tolerating an extremely destructive drug does not improve society.

    Behind the scenes these junkies run up huge medical bills. They live like zombies and contract all kinds of diseases. Their addiction causes all kinds of complications that normal people don’t have. So anyone that thinks that society saves money from keeping them out of jail isn’t aware of the full extent of the problem.

    Numerous Asain countries solved their opiate problems through force. It’s a libertarian lie that you can’t control the drug trade. Anything can be controlled, it’s just a matter of will.

    forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious

    themselves
    , they lose once and for all their sense of probity.
    To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil

    but the some in the MSM dispute various details. What is undeniable, though, is that he went to the riots with a gun, and Orwellian Doublethink has many attacking Kyle and defending Grosskreutz for the same action. What is also undeniable is that Grosskreutz chased after Kyle, feigned surrender, and then pointed the gun at Kyle, and he later said that he regretted not just unloading the entire gun and killing Kyle immediately.

    Not only that, the corrosive effects and the loss of civil liberties is a much greater problem.

    “No-knock raids”, “civil asset forfeiture” (legalized theft under color of authority), currency controls and reporting, the “drug exception” to warrantless unconstitutional searches are but “end-runs” around the Constitution and have done much to damage the fabric of American society.

    Police departments, prison systems and the courts LOVE the idea of “illegal substances” as their funding depends on keeping certain substances “illegal”.

    Today’s “drug problem” is due to questionable unknown potency of these substances due to the ((illegal)) nature of the system. Potency and adulteration of these substances cannot be assured or regulated due to their illegality.

    Liverpool England, once a hotbed of heroin addiction and criminal activity due to addiction has been “cleaned up” by the distribution of drugs under controlled circumstances. Liverpool addicts hold jobs and function normally as they do not have to wonder where their “next supply” is coming from or search for their next “supply”.

    Numerous Asian countries solved their opiate problems through force. It’s a libertarian lie that you can’t control the drug trade. Anything can be controlled, it’s just a matter of will.

    Singapore and China supposedly execute drug dealers (and sometimes do) but that doesn’t stop it. Other than the underground, tiny SuperMax federal prison in Colorado, all other prisons in the US (so it is reported) have drugs sold/used inside even in maximum security units. So it’s not a “matter of will.” This corrupts the guards and staff of course, and finances prison gangs inside and out.

    Illegal contraband generates huge profits to sellers. Human nature triumphs “will.” No nation has “solved” their opiate problems through force. That is a myth.

    The social/economic problems of drug users can be managed. See several nations in Europe and much of the rest of the world, where drug use is tolerated but still illegal.

    If currently illegal opiates (other than super strong fenytal or high potency meth, etc.) were Rx dispensed at nominal prices to adults, the black market would disappear. Like alcohol. That is still a social problem (booze) but managed. Recall, fellow boomers, that the social approval of both drunks and cig smokers has largely disappeared. While both are tolerated they are strictly legally and socially regulated. No more “happy drunks” on TV or cig puffing detectives and singers. Or in your office or in public places. (I know, decades back I was a heavy smoker.)

    Personally I would advocate, even as a libertarian, excise taxes on currently illegal drugs (not too high, but some) to fund rehab programs, etc. Still would cost much cheaper than the illegal stuff. Also mandatory prison for harmful conduct/acts for those high in public endangering others.

    Drug zombies should be arrested if loitering/camping in public, for some jail rehab. Where are the work farms of yore! Children of course should be removed from druggie households if any detectable problems there. Random drug tests for govt. welfare recipients. Common sense.

    Not utopia, but ending the black market (Black!) would stop the drug economy. Of course the drug peddling underclass would be unemployed. Bring back shovel digging CCC federal workers if need be. Lots of environmental remediation in their neighborhoods and out in the countryside.

    If something isn’t done as I suggest, eventually the US will have to invade parts of Mexico to stop the cartels. (A great idea for my Netflix series, BTW).
