Mordor Across the River

The fires out here have finally blown the virus out of the government topic of the day. Something about imminent danger and the fact that a poor response is immediately visible to politicians and the voting public seems to change the topic.

We here across the river have smoke and foul air but nothing compared to our former home.

The picture from my phone does not do the visuals justice as the software attempted to brighten up the photo way beyond what your eyeball perceives. Those are not clouds, they are smoke. Air quality in Portland is now measured at “worst in the world”.

We are here waiting to hear if my daughter in law, grandson and his abulea are evacuating their home in Springfield or not.

All other noise fades away.

Like today in 2001, reality rules, spin and nonsense fades away

Will voters wake up to the fact that clearing out fire starting underbrush and making sure you have adequate fossil fuel or nuclear powered electric capacity are not debatable but necessary?

One can only hope. Cities are unlivable and the suburban alternative is under threat from mobs, fires and power shortages. The choices in November get starker by the day.

  1. President Donald Trump received a second publicized nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    Winners are announced in mid-October. The sudden collapse of a Socialist regime is about going back to work then safely keeping what you earn. The world cheers!

    A few DemSocs may be discovered hanging from light standards – but do not worry.  Truth, justice, and the American way will boost that into triple digits.

    One of my online students is in US Army Intelligence active reserves. They have evidence many of the west coast fires are set by ANTIFA.

    I have seen lots of “fact-checkers” disputing this.  Legacy Media says “false.”  Big Tech is suppressing it.

    It could be just rumor.  It could be true.

    The thing is, there are probably arsons going on.  They may or may not have anything to do with AntiFa.  Arsonists should hang whatever their politics are.

  3. “Fact checkers”? LOL you mean Google, Twitter, Facebook snot noses when they are no longer in their black ANTIFA/BLM uniforms burning, looting and scaring senior citizens trying to have a drink and dinner in a sidewalk cafe?

    My source is active military police called back into service as we speak on his way to Minnesota and he has a large network of associates in relevant USG units. He seems quite sure about this.

    Hopefully, this can help out a little bit.

    Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover “”domestic,”” as opposed to international, terrorism.   A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act “dangerous to human life” that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to:  (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.  Additionally, the acts have to occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and if they do not, may be regarded as international terrorism.

    Section 802 does not create a new crime of domestic terrorism.  However, it does expand the type of conduct that the government can investigate when it is investigating “terrorism.”   The USA PATRIOT Act expanded governmental powers to investigate terrorism, and some of these powers are applicable to domestic terrorism.

    The definition of domestic terrorism is broad enough to encompass the activities of several prominent activist campaigns and organizations. 

    Antifa and some subgroups are considered to be agents of the Chinese Government. 

    Please see the following below:

    The Patriot Act increases the government’s power to spy in four areas

    The Patriot Act increases the governments surveillance powers in four areas:

    1. Records searches.  It expands the government’s ability to look at records on an individual’s activity being held by a third parties. (Section 215)
    2. Secret searches.  It expands the government’s ability to search private property without notice to the owner. (Section 213)
    3. Intelligence searches.  It expands a narrow exception to the Fourth Amendment that had been created for the collection of foreign intelligence information (Section 218).
    4. “Trap and trace” searches.  It expands another Fourth Amendment exception for spying that collects “addressing” information about the origin and destination of communications, as opposed to the content (Section 214).

    1.  Expanded access to personal records held by third parties

    One of the most significant provisions of the Patriot Act makes it far easier for the authorities to gain access to records of citizens’ activities being held by a third party.  At a time when computerization is leading to the creation of more and more such records, Section 215 of the Patriot Act allows the FBI to force anyone at all – including doctors, libraries, bookstores, universities, and Internet service providers – to turn over records on their clients or customers.

    PowerThe government has power to rifle through individuals’ financial records, medical histories, Internet usage, bookstore purchases, library usage, travel patterns, or any other activity that leaves a record.

    • The government no longer has to show evidence that the subjects of search orders are an “agent of a foreign power,” a requirement that previously protected Americans against abuse of this authority. 
    • The FBI does not even have to show a reasonable suspicion that the records are related to criminal activity, much less the requirement for “probable cause” that is listed in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.  All the government needs to do is make the broad assertion that the request is related to an ongoing terrorism or foreign intelligence investigation. 
    • Judicial oversight of these new powers is essentially non-existent.  The government must only certify to a judge – with no need for evidence or proof – that such a search meets the statute’s broad criteria, and the judge does not even have the authority to reject the application. 
    • Surveillance orders can be based in part on a person’s First Amendment activities, such as the books they read, the Web sites they visit, or a letter to the editor they have written.  
    • A person or organization forced to turn over records is prohibited from disclosing the search to anyone.  As a result of this gag order, the subjects of surveillance never even find out that their personal records have been examined by the government.  That undercuts an important check and balance on this power: the ability of individuals to challenge illegitimate searches.

    So if they have identified people who are known to be firebombing, why haven’t they been arrested?

    Police and Federal Agents have identified Antifa members driving up and down roads and coastline throwing fire bombs, molotov cocktails, homemade thermite agents, etc.

    Good friend of mine an Arson investigator with Cal Fire has also confirmed this and are going over surveillance footage and evidence.
