#2  The Mayor and Governor of Washington need to put a end to these riots. Put in a curfew, say sun-up to sun-down and arrest anyone wandering around after curfew. Sort them out later. If that doesn't work, bring in the National Guard and give them clear ROEs that include shooting rioters. These people are dangerous feral packs.

Fifth Column
BREAKING: Car plows through a group of BLM protesters after they surround vehicle in Denver!
[NewsThud] A group of BLMers surrounded a vehicle in Denver during tonight’s protest, but the driver was determined not to be a victim and ended up plowing right through them:

These idiots never learn. I mean it’s a freaking car. Nine times out of ten the driver has the upper hand.

Here’s another angle:

I honestly don’t blame the driver. There’ve been enough of these incidents that went bad that I wouldn’t sit there either.

Of course, now the driver will likely be subject to harassment and death threats, as I’m sure they got the license tag and will probably show up at their home or something. I hope that’s not the case but it’s what I would expect.

#3  Denver police detain driver after vehicle plows into Breonna Taylor protesters

#4  The Wife I have discussed this scenario at length.
We agreed to the following, If no alternative unblocked safe route is possible.

1. Always have the front and rear DASH-CAM's working.
2. Use the horn to warn.
3. IF BOXED IN and/or SURROUNDED by a riotous mob. Slowly (coast) and carefully proceed to and thru the rioting mob.

4. If any Rioter/mob member jumps on the hood, roof or attacks the doors and/or windows, increase speed to 5mph and NOT stop until clear and safe. They will attack you break windows to get you and etc.

5. Once safely away from the scene call 9-1-1 and report the incident in great detail. Make sure to state 2 or 3x's "We feared for our Lives and safety while being attacked by this mob".

6. NOTE: Crosswalk laws only apply if the pedestrian is in the crosswalk with the Green OK to Cross light lit.

7. See your lawyer to counter-sue anyone suing you for 2x their amount. Frivolous Lawsuits counter suing.

Even the ACLU of Oregon is clear on the Traffic blocking Protests. A protest that blocks vehicular or pedestrian traffic is illegal without a permit. You do not have the right to block a building entrance or physically harass people. The general rule is that free speech activity cannot take place on private property, including shopping malls, without consent of the property owner.

#10  One should just have a hack doctor's diagnosis handy. And some prescriptions for an ailment like 'panic attacks' or something. Situation in America being what it is, one's bound to find sympathy from the bench as a freak of some kind.

#14  “He wasn’t gonna stop even though I was, like, on his hood," one witness said.

Seems like more than just a witness.

And if it's a problem for the witness, the driver could always tap the brakes so he rolls off the hood onto the ground in front of the car before punching it again.

Oh, and don't lose momentum or you may get stuck. A car can only apply about 1,000 pounds of forward force.

#23  I am talking about escaping a trap - not using a vehicle as a weapon. Try not to hit people if possible, not only is that the right and potentially legal thing to do, if you start bopping people and get disabled you will be in quite the spot especially if the reports are accurate about chasers who will follow escapees:

Heavier objects, it may be better to approach then push rather than ramming.

If you have to ram something of substance, and you can, go in reverse and use the trunk so not to damage the engine. Learn to do a quick 180 (I found it easier with a manual transmission, the auto took some practice).

Leave room between you and the vehicle in front of you so you have options.

Traffic laws are already broken. Not the time to worry about one-way streets, driving on sidewalks or off road such as the area between interstate directions. Do try to keep with normal traffic patterns as best as possible: approach Stop and Yield and Controlled intersections with caution - not the time to get T-Boned.

Don't get high centered.

There are other things, but the need to talk about them is not here. Yet.

#24  Traffic laws are already broken. Not the time to worry about one-way streets,

I recall the halcyon days of Freknik in ATL I lived on 10th St across from Piedmont Park. The cops told me to drive the wrong way down one way streets to get out.

#15  My Cliff's Notes take-away:

Team Blamtifa is well organized, and well equipped for their task. They use real time knowledge a la "Total War video game God's Eye" to direct their movements to captains, who then with chants a la drummers in a Napoleonic or Roman sense, issue march orders. Do we hold, advance, break stuff, so forth.

Hannibal is attributed the quote, paraphrased, "I do not have to overcome the organization of the Romans, all I have to do is overcome the General."

But swksvolFF, my fine feathered friend, they lost the war!

Indeed. What I'm getting at is that Trebia, that Lake Tresimene, that Cannae, was the re-organization of the Punic led forces defeated a rigidly organized force.

It occurs to me, that the locals are not so keen with the usurpers which is different than Punics in Italy.

Biden voters reportedly attack home of Trump supporters in Minnesota
The Democrats’ vow to "burn everything down" if they don’t get their way is allegedly being fulfilled. Last night in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, unknown arsonists attacked the home of two Trump supporters, burning the family’s garage and several vehicles and destroying a large Trump sign in their yard:

As shown in one of those photos, the arsonists apparently spray painted "Biden 2020," "BLM" and the Antifa symbol on a garage wall. This is the Brooklyn Center Police Department’s press release:

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Molla family. On Facebook, liberals are claiming that the Mollas set the fire themselves and spray painted the BLM/Antifa graffiti as an insurance fraud scheme. Their rationale is that BLM is a peaceful, law-abiding organization and Antifa members don’t like Joe Biden.

Not all the facts are in on this incident, obviously. It could be that the arson was committed by someone other than BLM/Antifa. But when those groups vow to burn down America, it is not surprising that many people find credible the possibility that they have done just that.

Syrian Army reinforcements deploy to front-lines with Turkish forces
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been moving in reinforcements to the al-Raqqa Governorate over the last 48 hours, with several convoys deploying to front-lines with the Ottoman Turkish military and their allies.
According to reports from al-Raqqa, the Syrian Arab Army sent reinforcements to the key town of ’Ain ’Issa, which has been targeted on a number of occasions by the Ottoman Turkish-backed forces.

The reason for the deployments is not known at this time; however, the Ottoman Turkish-backed forces have been increasing their hostilities east of the Euphrates, which threatens the government troops.

Furthermore, the Ottoman Turkish military and their allies have been monitored moving their forces to several areas east of the Euphrates, prompting the army to suspect a new offensive is coming.

The last major offensive conducted by the Ottoman Turkish-backed forces took place last September, when they entered northern al-Raqqa and al-Hasakah.
