1- Where do all the fireworks come from in ALL these riots? They are now generally restricted for sale in the US. And how about the pallets of bricks, pre-positioned stolen cars in groups and all the other raw material of the rioters.
2- As you can see today, the instruction to Antifada+ is now to intimidate the police, National Guard and all others present at confrontations to kneel on demand to the rioters. Nothing could be clearer as a message of whom is winning control. This generally a successful tactic.
3 – In re Richmond, IMO the graffiti and obscenities now adorning the statues of Lee, Jackson, Davis and Jeb Stuart should remain there for all eternity a a memorial to the "contextualization" of Richmond's shame and disgrace. Someone tried last night to saw off Stuart's leg. I wish I had been there.
4. Trump tonight rejected Kushner's ass kissing response to the mobs and placed CJCS in charge of the emergency. We will see what happens now. I recommend Thiers' response to the Communards. Too bad Clemenceau had skipped town before the French Army caught him. Nika! Nika! pl
