Just a Little Something You Can Do!

Yesterday at Refugee Resettlement Watch I reported that when Republican and Frightened Rabbit Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma proposed dumping Columbus Day from the federal holiday calendar, there was pushback at home and he quickly backed down.

I told you then that Mark Steyn says we must fight back and not depend on voting in November to show our displeasure at what the Marxists are doing.

She needs a mask, pronto!

Here is a little something you can do (besides preparing to protect your family and community from the mob):

Tell everyone you know to buy a few cans of Goya products this week.

I’m sure you didn’t miss the campaign Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk have started to destroy Goya foods simply because the company’s CEO praised the President.

Here is the news from Reuters:

Goya chief executive sparks backlash over praise for Trump

(Reuters) – Goya Foods Inc, the largest Hispanic-owned U.S. food company and a popular brand among Latino Americans, became the target of a boycott campaign on social media on Friday sparked by its CEO effusively praising President Donald Trump at the White House.

The hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya began trending on Twitter after Robert Unanue, chief executive officer of the New Jersey-based company, appeared with Trump on Thursday for the signing of an executive order creating an advisory panel aimed at spurring Hispanic prosperity.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder, and that’s what my grandfather did,” said Unanue, the third generation of his family to run the business. “We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

Remembering that Saul Alinsky instructed his radicals to use ridicule as a weapon (he said it is the best politcal weapon) besides buying some Goya products this week to make up for AOC’s boycott, send this around to get a chuckle from your family and friends. Hat tip: Cathy.

 

Go out now and get your Goya!

When “It” Comes to Your Neighborhood!

“It” in this case is Black Lives Matter thieves.

What a coincidence…

After posting earlier yesterday about being prepared!, last night I spent a largely unsuccessful hour searching for solar flood lighting with a motion sensor.  It needs to be bright, stay on for awhile, easy to put up, and here is the clincher for my husband—it cannot be made in China.

I’ll be back to my search again today. However, in frustration, I figured a better use of my time might be to check my hundreds of e-mails that I’ve ignored for over a week; and what did one regular follower send—bingo! an article showing the value of having good lighting on your property!

This is no ones house I know! It was from an ad for lighting.

 

The post, written by Mel, and published last month at the US Concealed Carry Association website is entitled:

It has come to our neighborhood…..

I’ve snipped some of Mel’s personal story, but please go to the link and read it all.

Last Sunday morning very early (before 6am), my wife and I was sitting on the back patio having our morning coffee as we do every morning…and suddenly we hear the Sheriff’s Dept. Helicopter flying above our home, circling about a 4 block square area…VERY LOW…like just barely above the trees. (This is EXTREMELY RARE for our neighborhood!)

As I watched our surveillance cameras monitor, we saw 3 to 5 Sheriff’s cars flying down our street.

We live in a very “bedroom community” type older subdivision with most homes on 1/2 to 1 acre lots…little if any crime and even then its usually just a domestic squabble at one of the rental houses.

[….]

The Sheriff’s helicopter presence in the neighborhood went on for almost an hour until I had a couple deputies knock on our door just as it became daylight. They came to ask to review our cameras (we live on a larger corner lot and have 10 surveillance cameras that view a large area of our main street into the subdivision and a side street).
The Deputy said they were looking for a brown or tan pick-up truck coming or going.

As I reviewed the video, the Deputy said there was 3 home invasions done within the 2-4 block areas of our home.

Said it appeared the criminals were scoping out homes to hit as they picked ones with elderly residents, no outside lighting, no cameras, no vehicles or just 1 vehicle in driveway and no signs of dogs at the home. He said our house would be an unlikely target BECAUSE we have heavy lighting around the entire house (motion detected spot lights on all 4 corners and a dusk to dawn commercial street light on pole in front yard, along with the several surveillance cameras and the multiple signage stating trained protection Dobermans on premises,“Do Not Enter Without Owner Present”! (We also have 5 vehicles parked in driveway even though there are only 3 drivers here).

[….]

Yesterday morning we were visited by a County Detective with our Sheriff’s Dept. and two F.B.I. Agents. They requested to view the videos live from my sysyem and asked how far back does my system retain video…I told them all of the cameras keep the recordings on our DVR for 10 days before they start over-recording…BUT, our camera supplier has a 60 day retainment kept in their company’s “cloud” (this was one of the reasons I chose them).

To put this in perspective…our town is just across the river/lake from Sanford FL…where all of the race baiting BS started with the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin fiasco and Obama’s famous race card comment “If I Had A Son, He Would Have Been Trayvon!”

The Detective told us that those described cars were occupied by 8 to 10 blacks (both males and females) associated with a known gang…and I made comment “Who, BLM?”…and he just kind of stared at me…(I didn’t realize how true this was until later).

[….]

It is commonly known in our area that most of the crime committed at our businesses and in the next town commercial districts are committed by both black and whites who associate themselves with BLM and who come from the areas west of us…Sanford, Orlando and its County of Orange Co.

[….]

He said the 3 homes they had hit was 1 that was just 4 houses up the street from ours (this confirmed previous neighborhood gossip). That home is owned by an elderly White lady who was widowed about 3 years ago and lives alone with a few cats. They only terrorized her and shoved her a couple of times…but she will be okay…thank God! They ransacked her home and stole some jewelry, electronics and a couple of old guns.

[….]

Now here is the REAL CLINCHER!!!

I asked the Detective why we hadn’t seen anything on the news about this…and UNBELIEVABLE…he says because of the volatile racial environment right now in our country…ALL of these type crimes are on a MANDATORY MEDIA BLACKOUT!The Police and Feds are not to inform the media, use special frequency radio communications during the investigation and to downplay any questioning of what took place by the news people. SAY WHAT?

[….]

Later when it was just the Detective and I, I asked him if they WERE BLM members and if so, how they associated them with BLM and he said the trucks female driver is a well known activist for them and one of the original promoters of them. She has a long criminal record and from the Detectives comments, is VERY WELL KNOWN by the authorities. Because of this is why the FBI was now involved. (The FBI agents never said anything to me the whole time they were here, except greeting and saying who they were.)

[….]

And as a NOTE to this incident…As you can see…heavy lighting around your home, several cars in driveway showing probably several people inside, Beware of Dog(s) signs and multiple and visible surveillance cameras surrounding your property are THE BEST “PREVENTION” against becoming a victim…and probably MORE IMPORTANT than any firearm(s) you may have inside!

More details here.

What are You Doing to be Ready?

I didn’t write anything yesterday, partly because I worked hard outdoors and the heat fries my brain a bit, but mostly because I was thinking about the question of being ready and how I might not be doing you a service by yammering on about wonkish policy, or which evil-doer we admitted to America has killed or raped someone,  or which creep ripped off the SNAP program or Medicaid/Medicare as if everything was normal.

Your time is limited, are you reading and yakking or preparing to stay alive and well?

It isn’t normal and I was firmly reminded of that when my friend Leo Hohmann’s post was sent to me in an e-mail from another friend asking if she and her husband could come live on our farm.  I chirped back that they were welcome as long as they brought their arsenal.

In recent days another friend told me he and his wife abruptly sold their home in Washington, DC and moved temporarily to Florida.  They had lived near the Friendship Heights section of DC that was wrecked by rioters in late May.  But, it wasn’t the noise at night from on-going unrest, it was the fact that some of their neighbors were “taking a knee” in the street and making sure others in the neighborhood were informed of their capitulation to the mob that sent them south.

So how am I not doing you a service?

Well, first you must read Leo Hohmann’s post from two days ago entitled:

Welcome to the new abnormal: How to survive the growing civil unrest

 

(I’m not even going to snip any of it because I want you to read it all!)

So how am I doing you a disservice?

My blogging is simply adding to your addiction to the news and taking time away from what you must be doing now—you and your family must get ready for the unimaginable as November approaches and that is the possible breakdown of civil society.

I know most of you are addicted to reading news (so am I), and it makes you feel good (maybe even smug) because you know that you know more than most people around you about what is happening with the presidential campaign, the Left’s strategies, or what dirt Ghislaine Maxwell may or may not be dumping (if they keep her alive).

But, is knowing the latest news and yakking about juicy tidbits on Twitter or Facebook, or commenting at your favorite websites and blogs going to help you survive what could happen in the coming months?

My continued writing about what the latest plans are from say Bloomberg’s New American Economy and his sidekicks at Welcoming America is, I think, a way of making you believe everything is normal and we are just having disputes between warring policy ideas for the future of America.

And, thus reading time is taking your precious time needed to prepare, to even consider moving if you live in a vulnerable location.

Maybe I’ve read too many dystopian novels, but there is no downside to being the most prepared you can be.

If the Marxists’ takeover attempt fizzles and we have a normal election and a calm aftermath as Trump is reelected then we can thank God.  But, in the meantime, it will give you some peace of mind to be ready for the worst possible outcome.

I’m not saying to stop reading altogether (you need to get the best prep ideas), but I am suggesting you sit down with your family and make plans for your immediate family and with the help of like minded patriots for your local community.

That said, I will shut up.  Definitely read Leo’s post and get to work where you live.

Dear Joe, Make My Day! Please Pick Susan Rice for the Veep Job!

After all, you are pals and she has the cred!

And, it would be so much fun to write about her here at ‘Frauds and Crooks‘ because I followed her time in the Obama White House fairly closely at RRW and have a handy archive of juicy stories to draw upon.

Kamala ‘meh!’ same for Elizabeth Warren. Some of the other names being thrown around—‘meh’ too!

But, Rice, a worthy subject deserving of whatever can be thrown at her!  And, think about it, it will be the closest thing we could have to going after Obama himself!

From The Hill:

Susan Rice sees stock rise in Biden VP race

Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are getting most of the buzz, but former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice is also getting a lot of attention in Joe Biden’s campaign as he considers who to pick as his running mate, sources say.

Rice, who also served as former President Obama’s national security adviser, has seen her stock rise amid a series of crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I know she’s very much in the mix,” a source close to the Biden campaign said.

One factor to watch is Biden’s relationship with Rice. The two worked closely in the Obama administration, and personal chemistry is an underrated factor in vice presidential decisions.

“I know they have a good relationship — perhaps the best relationship of anyone on the list,” the source close to the Biden campaign said. “They’ve known each other for years, they’ve worked alongside each other and she’s been tested in a way that a lot of folks on the list just haven’t been.”

Biden, who has committed to selecting a woman as his running mate, has said repeatedly that he is looking for someone who is “ready to be president on day one.”

 

 

Scary stuff!

“She’s a rock star who has the confidence, stature and gravitas to be vice president.”

[….]

Rice wouldn’t confirm or deny that she is “in talks with the Biden campaign” during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow this week.

More here.

Rice on the ticket would surely bring out gal pal Samantha Power and that would be double fun for me.

Why didn’t anyone ever write a book about the women behind Obama—Susan Rice, Samantha Power and Valerie Jarrett—sure could come in handy now!

Leo’s Latest, a Must Read: The Bolshevik army shows its face in Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain

It really is time to get ready.  If you are like me, you might be thinking that you don’t want to imagine the worst, that things are tough enough between the Chinese Virus ‘crisis,’ the election, the riots, and the economy, but it could be worse and here Leo Hohmann tells us how bad it could get.

Conclusion: Best to swallow the red pill and be prepared.

Black Militia at Stone Mountain denounced even Black Lives Matter

 

From Leo Hohmann.com:

The Bolshevik army shows its face in Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain

 

We’re witnessing the convulsions of a nation breaking apart at the seams.

Each new convulsion will be deeper, more traumatic and more violent than the previous.

The latest escalation occurred Saturday, July 4th, in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

According to the nonprofit group Georgia Law Enforcement, which posted a description of the event on Facebook, an armed group of “protesters” carrying AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, marched through the streets of Stone Mountain yelling threats at white people.

[….]

Let’s cut to the chase. This is the Bolshevik Army showing its face in America. They are signaling that they are for real and they are ready for action. The time for talking is over.

Black Lives Matter is just a smokescreen meant to lure in the do-gooders. You know the type, those who feel all warm and fuzzy when they virtue signal about their lily white hearts, which bleed for the oppressed while accusing America of “systemic racism.” These social-justice warriors are hopelessly lost and lacking in discernment as to where things are heading, and it may be too late to save them from what’s coming.

[….]

Short of some miracle that unites the country, neither side is going to accept the outcome of that election. Certainly not the left-leaning side.

That means more violence in November, and it will be worse than what we saw in June, far worse.

[….]

Most conservatives make the fatal mistake of underestimating their enemy. We tend to look at the mostly white rich kids knocking over statues and think this is the face of our adversaries. Weak. Pathetic.

But behind this façade is a well-trained coalition of highly trained white and black militants associated with groups like the Weather Underground and the Muslim Brotherhood. Underestimate them at your own risk.

I advise every American who is concerned about these leftwing militias to contact their local sheriff and ask him or her where they stand with regard to mobs of people tearing down monuments, shouting violent or threatening slogans, and now, increasingly, starting to arm themselves.

I’ve only snipped a very tiny bit of the post, you must read it all.

Addendum: To add to your discomfort this morning, see Ann Coulter, here.
