An example of what two million dollars in donations will do to get a killer acquitted tracks nicely back to the plans executed by Kyle Rittenhouse's crooked lawyers.

First came the bad news about Kyle being dumb and stupid to the point that he dropped out of high school in 2017 in his freshman year, obviously with his mother's consent. Classmates described Rittenhouse to Vice as easily angered and confrontational. The Tribune and Sun Times reported that he had dropped out of school based upon information from Lakes Community High School in Antioch, IL. Later his mother told police that Rittenhouse had been "homeschooled."

No proof was offered and that had to be fixed, so Rittenhouse said during testimony on Nov. 10 that he is a college student at Arizona State Online studying nursing. ASU said no, not nursing, but admitted that he was so enrolled as a nondegree student. Rittenhouse told the court a lie claiming he had attained a high school diploma through some unnamed online program while living with his mom and sisters in Wisconsin (after the murders).

But a very short visit to ASUonline reveals that no documentation is required to enroll as a nondegree student but goes further to state that an applicant must be a high school graduate except those under 18, wherein a note from your school would be nice.

So there we have it. Normalcy attained with a few white lies. From here, normalizing murder just takes a few more white lies - like:

"They’re trying to take my gun away, ha-haaa!!? They’re trying to take my gun away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa? Remember how I ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to bad mouth me or I'd go berserk? Well - things got worse and worse and now you'll see I’ve gone completely out of my mind and you are - dead, he-he."

To this day, the Kenosha prosecutors don't know what hit them.

Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of Nasa scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen who last week warned only urgent action by the new president could halt the devastating climate change that now threatens Earth. Crucially, that action will have to be taken within Obama's first administration, he added.

From an interview published in The Guardian January 18, 2009.

I didnt think it was possible, but our Poor Man's *** ***** gadfly has out gadfly-ed himself with his latest, possibly chemically induced, lunatic rant which included fake quotes.

One interesting observation: to his/her/xer's credit, gadfly is no longer posting moronic screeds claiming Rittenhouse was handling his weapon in an improper manner, probably due to 2 reasons:

1) gadfly, who knows nothing about weapons and has been known to soil himself at the mere contemplation of self-defense against pedophiles and women beaters, got his/her/xer's arse handed to him/her/xer after his last lie-filled rant

2) Navy SEALs and Army Special Forces soldiers have now written extensively on Rittenhouse's superior techniques and split-second decision making and control

"Kyle Rittenhouse’s conduct on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was “textbook perfect,” Jonathan Gilliam, retired Navy SEAL, former FBI agent, and author of Sheep No More: The Art of Awareness and Attack Survival,..."

"Rittenhouse was not “praying and spraying in a total reaction,” Gilliam added. “If you look at who these people were that he actually shot, and what their actions were, and how he was trying to get away, and they came after him, everything he did was textbook perfect.”

“Even when he was on the ground, he was not engaging people unless they engaged him,” he remarked. “It was perfect.”


Now would be a good time to, once again, as always, point and laugh at gadfly.

Cheery News! [Not] Covid-19 vaccine unlikely to be as effective against Omicron variant, Moderna boss warns

London Times

The boss of the drugmaker Moderna has warned that Covid-19 vaccines are unlikely to be as effective against the Omicron variant in comments that have added to uncertainty about its impact and unsettled financial markets.

“There is no world, I think, where [the effectiveness] is the same level we had with Delta,” Stéphane Bancel told the Financial Times. “I think it’s going to be a material drop. I just don’t know how much because we need to wait for the data. But all the scientists I’ve talked to ... are like, ‘this is not going to be good’.”

[Reuters: Bancel added that the high number of mutations on the protein spike the virus uses to infect human cells meant it was likely the current crop of vaccines would need to be modified.]

Hours earlier President Biden said Omicron was not “a cause for concern, not a cause for panic”. He said that the US government’s medical experts “believe that the vaccines will continue to provide a degree of protection against severe disease”.

Yesterday Scott Gottlieb, a director of Pfizer and former commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration, was also more upbeat, telling CNBC: “There’s a reasonable degree of confidence in vaccine circles that [with] at least three doses ... the patient is going to have fairly good protection against this variant.”

Bancel said it would take several months before an Omicron-specific vaccine could be produced in large numbers.

“[Moderna] and Pfizer cannot get a billion doses next week. The maths doesn’t work. But could we get the billion doses out by the summer? Sure,” he told the FT, and predicted Moderna could make a total of two billion to three billion doses in 2022.

If this turns out to be true, soon we'll all be wearing masks again. Except for the dummies.

Gadfly the leftwing troll:

"Kyle Rittenhouse was a 17-year-old armed youth who volunteered to protect business properties at the height of the August 2020 arson, riots, and looting in Kenosha. He was pursued and attacked by three members from a larger group who chased the armed youth, presumably either to disarm, injure, or kill him—or perhaps all three.

Rittenhouse variously was assaulted, kicked, and had a firearm pointed at him. In reaction, he fatally shot two of his pursuing attackers and wounded a third. Kenosha prosecutors reviewed videos of the altercations. They saw clearly that Rittenhouse was running away from his assailants. He was variously rushed by one assailant, kicked by another, and struck with a skateboard by still another. Again, a final pursuer pointed a gun at him at close range.

No matter. The Kenosha district attorney’s office charged Rittenhouse with several felonies including two first-degree homicide charges. All four whom Rittenhouse fired at—whether he missed, wounded, or fatally shot—had lengthy arrest records. Three were convicted felons; the fourth had a long arrest record. "

Waukesha terrorist memory-holed by gadfly's favorite collective corrupt press

"As soon as it was revealed that the Waukesha mass murderer was a black career criminal who hated white people, it was a no-brainer to state that the huge story would fade from view as quickly as possible and that any reference to it would eliminate the perpetrator as much as possible.

We also know that the opposite would have occurred if the perpetrator had been on the right and had hated black people and been a Trump supporter. The media is dedicated to amplifying whatever it thinks furthers the leftist narrative and stifling what it thinks does not. And of course it’s not limited to the media – it involves social media and virtually the entire Democratic Party, in concert."

gadfly - do you think it's NORMAL to commit arson and get away with it? 50 million in white-left rage-damage in Kenosha and you are OK with that?

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

IMPORTANT TO "... tell readers about the criminal histories of the men who were shot. All three have criminal histories (read our previous story on that here). Rosenbaum’s is arguably the most relevant because, video and eyewitnesses show, he was the instigator that night. He was seen acting aggressively and using a racial slur in a gas station parking lot and pushing a burning dumpster (a witness and video show Rittenhouse used a fire extinguisher to help put it out). The criminal complaint against Rittenhouse says Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag and tried to grab the teenager’s gun."

deprogramming gaadfly:

Given the lengthy and quite horrific rap sheet of Rittenhouse’s first attacker Joseph Rosenbaum (including multiple counts of pedophiliac rape), it is difficult to understand why the latter was not in jail (he had been released earlier that day from a mental facility to which he had been committed after a failed suicide attempt). The common denominator to the various prior convictions of his other three assailants was that they should have led to consequences far worse, given that many of their arrest charges were dropped, or bail was sometimes waived, or plea bargaining turned serious charges into merely bothersome ones. The release of violent offenders on little or no bail seems now thematic in Wisconsin.

Shortly after the August 2020 shootings, the media, Joe Biden, and most of the left-wing commentariat had claimed Rittenhouse was a “white supremacist,” even though there was no evidence of such a libel, then or now. Remember, the Kenosha shootings took place just nine weeks before the November presidential elections, at a time when the Left was framing the incumbent Trump as a “white supremacist” and Joe Biden a “healer.”

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

..
The shootings were immediately declared to be “racial.” Yet both the shooter Rittenhouse and all of his attackers who were wounded or killed were white (a fourth assailant, an African-American who kicked Rittenhouse while he was on the ground escaped without injury).

What followed in the media was the most egregious example of concocted fictions since the Russian collusion hoax. Rittenhouse was falsely accused of crossing “state lines” (plural), while unlawfully armed with an “illegal automatic weapon.”

In truth, he did not buy the Smith & Wesson semi-automatic rifle, much less bring it into nearby Kenosha, Wisconsin from nearby Antioch, Illinois. It was legal for Rittenhouse to possess and use the firearm. The gun itself was not unlawful. He did not purchase it but had been given it by a friend. And Kenosha was his alternate home in that it was where his father and other relatives lived. Rittenhouse, then, was constructed as the proverbial white supremacist of the sort warned about by the likes of Joe Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley.

more..
At various times during the trial, the prosecuting attorneys called Rittenhouse a coward. They claimed he should have faced the pursuing mob of at least a dozen and willingly taking a beating from them face-to-face, in at least one case at gunpoint. The jury inter alia was told that the ongoing arson and other violent acts were not serious crimes, and that the three who attacked Rittenhouse were near-heroic victims.

[[[[[(that is the democrat party in a nutshell: you will take the left's beating and abuse, and you will accept our rage filled arson of your business)]]]]]

Protestors outside the courthouse tried to intimidate the defense and jurors. A journalist sought to follow the jury bus, ostensibly to divulge their identities or to intimidate them (MSNBC was subsequently banned from the courtroom).


and now - the corrupt collective left are stalking and harassing Rittenhosue.

"Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster..."

Yes, we should definitely use dictionary definitions to decide which words to use, because billionaires can buy dictionaries with the change from their couch, and control our speech. Merriam-Webster is right out of the book, 1984. If you tried to understand "I felt the baby kick today" by using their dictionary, it would come up as the absurd idea that a baby that had already been born had kicked its mother, and that it was such a remarkable event that she... oops, the birthing person, remarked on it, since they redefined 'baby' to exclude not yet born children.

It's all about killing a respected institution and wearing its pelt and demanding the same respect the Institution formerly commanded. It's two different senses of the word command, on denoting an earned respect, and the other an enforced respect, but the people who have taken over the Mirriam-Webster Dictionary have zero ideas of subtle differences in the senses of words. Just like the new head of Twitter has conflated "white people" and "racist" in his mind into having a single meaning.

Long distance call from Kabul on the white courtesy phone.

Oh wait, another call from the Mexica Border.. Another large shipment of ChiCom Fentynal and trafficked 'sex workers' just got through as well as another couple hundred thousand illegals that he invited in have crossed into the country this month. But do't worry, flights from Africa have been banned!

Calls from gas stations across America are rolling in, as Biden's demands that OPEC increase production and his release of the reserve oil that Trump had set aside when Trump's policies had created American abundance have had zero effect , after his crippling regulations on American producers and his hostility toward pipelines from Canada begin to bite.

Joe Biden is in pure panic mode due to bad decision after bad decision, and panic isn't a good look for a president.

Update on the corrupt liar left's harassment of an innocent man named Kyle Rittenhouse:

Rittenhouse made a mistake by revealing his acceptance at ASU. He may have been acquitted, but that doesn’t matter to the left. They made it very clear how little they believe in the concept of self-defense. When the media and even the sitting president of the United States falsely brand you a white supremacist, nothing, not even the facts, will change what the leftist sheep believe.

While the circumstances surrounding Rittenhouse’s enrollment at ASU aren’t entirely clear, the planned protests claiming he is a blood-thirsty murderer and a white supremacist have given Rittenhouse and his lawyers new proof of the impact the media’s and Joe Biden’s defamation has made on his life.


Nazi liar left to continue to hound and harass.
