Naked Tennessee woman armed with ax accused of vandalizing Walmart
[FoxNews] A Tennessee woman was arrested Tuesday after she was found partially naked and using an ax inside a Walmart, authorities said.

Officers in Knoxville responded to the giant retailer after a caller said a naked woman was throwing items at employees and defecated on herself, according to a police report.

Nashea Brown, 35, was found in the sporting goods section with an ax and a knife tucked into her bra, police said. The officers ordered her to drop the ax but she allegedly refused to comply.

One officer attempted to use a Taser but it was ineffective. Another officer used their Taser and Brown was taken into custody.

She is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and vandalism up to $1000. She is being held in the Knox County jail.

The store estimated more than $500 worth of property was vandalized.
Sounds like drugs...

#5  Knoxville is getting weirder and weirder. There is a school that is predominantly Wakandan that has had 5 drive=by . The latest school shooting involved a Wakandan 17 year old who beat up his multi racial girlfriend. He was found hiding in a bathroom when police officers arrived. He was wearing a hoody with a pouch and was sitting on the floor. When told to stand and show his hands he refused. One officer moved to pick him up and he resisted. He stood up but refused to remove his hands from the pouch. The officer took hold of one arm and the Wakandan took out a pistol and fired. He missed the officer and the other officer, who is black, fired and killed the Wakandan. The Democrat Mayor went nuts, demanding release of the body cam immediately. The police commisioner refused until the investigation was complete. The house where the girlfriend lived was attempted to be set on fire in retaliation for her mom calling the police. There are places in Knoxville you do not go.

Not Knoxville but America -- the parts of America where Wakandan and Antifa savagery and Woke madness hold sway.

Wakandan-Woke America is an insane asylum. If we can't put the inmates back inside and under straitjackets, we have to separate their Mad Zones from the rest of us.

Re-segregation is now the only viable path for this country.

#9  Voluntary separation. Out migration from Wakandan-controlled and Woke jurisdictions.

Separate neighborhoods. Separate police forces, courts, schools, hospitals, companies. Separate legal systems. A separate bureaucratic / office job path for Wakandans serving in the military.

Separation now
Separation forever

#10  Sadly, this is an underclass (including the drugged and the mentally ill) — encouraged to run amok by the Progressives while the police are hobbled and handcuffed — versus bourgeoisie thing. Sensible African-Americans have also moved to the suburbs. I’ve been forced to conclude that even corrupt, racist policing is better for the poor than no policing at all.

#13  Sorry but we just need to separate from these people altogether.

"Diversity" and multiculturalism are no longer tenable. It would be a different story if our elite institutions and ruling class were not so completely captivated by this insanity, but they are.

Let's be honest with each other. Wherever the Wakandan element is involved, we no longer have due process, fair elections, rule of law, commitment to reason, pursuit to truth, free speech.

Either we abandon these foundational principles, or we separate from these lunatics.

We cannot live together with them in the same civil society -- because that society, that civilization we hold so dear, is expressly what they seek to destroy.

#16  Pretty ray to trace the downward spiral.

All the data shows race relations began going downhill in the Obama era. They were fine before 2009.

Race relations really started to go to shit during Barry's second term, with the BLM / Sts. Trayvon, MichaelBrown. Then the SHTF with St GeorgeFloyd.

We're beyond healing now. These bastards truly want to rip up what this nation built and became from 1776-2009. They hate us, they hate our heritage, our history values achievements -- they hate our civilization.

No way to get the toothpaste back in the tube now. Ballots are useless -- the system's hopelessly rigged thanks to absentee balloting and all the associated nonsense.

So we either
1) give in, grovel, confess our 'privilege' etc
or
2) fight fire with fire
or
3) leave them to their Blue shitholes and preserve and renew our society in the Red states and communities

#17  This is basic a Broken Window problem. Reinstitute active policing backed by strict judges, get the Progressive nonsense out of the schools and the workplace — again, backed by strict judges — and the mad and bad 10% of all races causing problems will no longer exercise their vicious whims on the 90% who’ll be happy not to misbehave when the environment doesn’t encourage misbehaviour (or 20/80 — the exact numbers aren’t as important as the general approach).

Oh, and train girls as well as boys to defend themselves and others when attacked, with the promise that they won’t be punished for it if their skin is the wrong shade. This standing back and filming on phones is no doubt useful for the police when they eventually get there, but does nothing to stop the attacker’s attack.

I disagree that it’s too late, though the Blue communities and states are going to continue their program of self harm for a while longer before those who stayed behind realize they are the only cause of all their problems.

Off-Duty Jersey City Officer Brutally Beaten By 10 Men
[DAILYVOICE] An off-duty Jersey City police officer was hospitalized after being beaten by a group of 10 men in a racially-motivated attack over the weekend, authorities said.The 42-year-old white officer was bleeding form his head and face when his colleagues were flagged down near Grove Street and Newark Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

The officer was assaulted by a group of 10 males, who were also shouting racially motivated insults at the victim, she said.

The unnamed victim identified himself as an off-duty police officer multiple times throughout the assault before losing consciousness, Wallace-Scalcione said.

He was transported to a local hospital with severe head trauma, where he was treated and released.

#3  /\ No there won't be a race war. The election and voting systems have now been subverted. The government is re-shaping the military into their WOKE image. As soon as local law enforcement can be dissolved and a blanket Federal LE system can be established, firearms are confiscated .....it's over. See the current Kommuis governments of Rhodesia and South Africa for details and the obvious end-game.

StL: defending one's home is No Excuse for Being Whiteand well-off. Atlanta: the elegant residential district is fast becoming a ghetto -- no-go zone for cops.

Suspect in 'unprovoked' stabbing of Asian woman was freed from jail days earlier
[NYPOST] A 94-year-old Asian woman was stabbed multiple times in an "unprovoked" attack in the Socialist paradise of San Francisco
...where God struck dead Anton LaVey, home of the Sydney Ducks, ruled by Vigilance Committee from 1859 through 1867, reliably and volubly Democrat since 1964...
by a burglary suspect who was released from jail nine days earlier, according to police and court records.

Daniel Cauich, 35, was wearing an ankle monitor when he was arrested Wednesday on charges including attempted homicide, elder abuse and committing a felony while on bail or release, NBC Bay Area reported, citing police.

Cauich, who had reportedly been arrested five times last year on burglary charges, was sprung by a judge on June 7 to await his trial after his most recent arrest for burglary on May 18, according to court records cited by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Authorities said Cauich was taken into custody without incident less than two hours after the elderly victim was stabbed several times in front of her apartment.

"Officers also located a knife near the scene of the crime believed to have been used in the commission of the stabbing," police said in a statement. "At this time Sherlocks believe the attack was unprovoked and are working to determine if race was a motivating factor in the incident."

The victim, Anh Taylor, was recovering at a hospital Wednesday and is expected to survive, according to NBC Bay Area. She had surgery on her wrist, which was badly cut during the attack, a news hound for the station tweeted.

"A man seemed like he had bumped her into a wall and then I heard her scream," a San Francisco woman identified only as Jasmine told NBC Bay Area. "When I ran over, I saw blood gushing all over. I said, ’What happened?’ She said, ’I don’t know, he stabbed me.’"

In September, Cauich was one of three suspects arrested in a string of burglaries in San Francisco’s North Beach section, where homes were robbed of bicycles, police said.

Cauich was convicted on multiple burglary charges in March, receiving a one-year jail sentence along with probation. He ultimately served more than 100 days before being released early in April, the Chronicle reported, citing court records.

Five years earlier, Cauich was arrested along with his brother in the fatal stabbing of a 55-year-old man, but a judge dismissed the case in February 2019 upon finding no sufficient cause to believe he was guilty. A third suspect in the case remains in jail awaiting trial, the newspaper reported.

Two executions in South Carolina are BLOCKED until the state can form a firing squad so that the inmates are able to choose how they die
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • The state's Supreme Court on Wednesday blocked the planned executions of Brad Sigmon and Freddie Owens until they can choose how they die

  • Under new capital punishment law, inmates are able to choose death by electrocution, lethal injection or firing squad

  • Sigmon and Owens both chose lethal injection, but the state doesn't have the necessary drugs for that method of execution

  • Corrections officers have also not yet assembled a firing squad, therefore electrocution would be the only option

  • The new revigorated opponents of capital punishment, who sent the state's governor a letter urging he call of the executions

Little Late Camels have been in the USA since about 1855



In 1855, under the direction of then-Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, Congress appropriated $30,000 for "the purchase and importation of camels and dromedaries to be employed for military purposes." Davis believed that camels were key to the country's expansion westward; a transcontinental railroad was still decades away from being built, and he thought the animals could be well suited to haul supplies between remote military outposts. By 1857, after a pair of successful trips to the Mediterranean and the Middle East, the U.S. Army had purchased and imported 75 camels. Within a decade, though, each and every one would be sold at auction.

Another time, two different friends walked camels South from Alice ( very open country) and all went well till they got to the Flinders Ranges and the camels absolutely, positively, would not walk under trees. Caused about a hundred mile detour.
Camels are megafauna, and megafauna is controllable right up till when it ain’t.
Just in case any Burgers are thinking about camel ranching!

Ammo shortage shows no sign of improving: Smith & Wesson
[FoxNews] Ammunition inventories that were depleted during the pandemic are showing no sign of improving, according to Smith & Wesson Brands CEO Mark Smith.

Gun sales in the U.S. have soared over the past 15 months as people sought protection in response to the wave of civil unrest that occurred following the death of George Floyd as well as an increase in socially distant outdoor activities amid COVID-19 lockdowns.

Firearms enthusiasts also stocked up to prepare for the possibility of stricter gun regulations during the Biden administration.

The unprecedented demand for firearms has made it difficult for manufacturers to keep ammunition on store shelves.

"It's widely known the ammunition shortages continue," said Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith. "There is still a lot of interest in firearms."

Smith & Wesson said it shipped nearly 2.5 million units last year, up 70% from 2020.

Strong demand continues in 2021.

NICS background checks have climbed 6.8% year over year to almost 1.63 million through the first five months of 2021. Last year they soared 40% to a record 39.695 million.

Background checks are indicative of sales trends but don’t translate directly to sales. For example, customers can purchase multiple firearms at once and only be the subject of one background check.

A survey of 1,800 customers conducted in April by market research firm Southwick Associates found three-quarters of respondents encountered out-of-stock issues when trying to purchase ammunition. That was down slightly from the four in five customers who faced the problem in 2020.

Chinese Defector's Identity Confirmed, Was Top Counterintelligence Official
[Red State] We now know the name of the Chinese defector who has been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for a few months and what his position within the Chinese military and government was, among other details.

Matthew Brazil and Jeff Stein at Spy Talk reported on the "rumor," and gave the name and background of the rumored defector:

Chinese-language anti-communist media and Twitter are abuzz this week with rumors that a vice minister of State Security, Dong Jingwei (董经纬) defected in mid-February, flying from Hong Kong to the United States with his daughter, Dong Yang.

Dong is, or was, a longtime official in China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), also known as the Guoanbu. His publicly available background indicates that he was responsible for the Ministry’s counterintelligence efforts in China, i.e., spy-catching, since being promoted to vice minister in April 2018. If the stories are true, Dong would be the highest-level defector in the history of the People’s Republic of China.

RedState’s sources confirmed that the defector is, in fact, Dong, that he was in charge of counterintelligence efforts in China, and that he flew to the United States in mid-February, allegedly to visit his daughter at a university in California. When Dong landed in California he contacted DIA officials and told them about his plans to defect and the information he’d brought with him. Dong then "hid in plain sight" for about two weeks before disappearing into DIA custody.

RedState’s sources say that Chinese officials did demand that the United States return Dong, but Blinken didn’t exactly refuse; at that time Blinken wasn’t aware that Dong was with the US government, the sources say, and told China that the US didn’t have Dong.

It’s only in the last three to four weeks that anyone outside DIA knew about the defector, according to RedState’s sources. Prior to that time, DIA was vetting the information provided and confronting Langley officials with what they’d learned without divulging the source.

Experts quoted in the Spy Talk piece essentially say that the defection is just a rumor and that rumors happen all the time, but that if it’s true it’s a big deal but "not game-changing." Based on conversations with sources familiar with the information Dong has already provided and its quantity and reliability, that’s simply not the case. Not only does Dong have detailed information about China’s special weapons systems, the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and the Chinese government’s assets and sources within the United States; Dong has extremely embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the "terabytes of data" he’s provided to the DIA.
Which the Biden Administration will promptly bury.

#4  Buried the lede:

In addition, Dong has provided DIA with the following information:

Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2

Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world

Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research

Plus:

Names of US citizens who provide intel to China

Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government

#5  Suspect. A man in 'spy catching' knows all about defectors and double and triple sided tale tattlers and plants and traps. If China wanted to plant a disinformation source it'd be him. And he would have to come with verifiable data, mostly on his American counterparts, which could be confirmed with only a slight digging. His China info will remain unverifiable and might even contain overestimation of Chinese 'special weapons systems'.

While Biden's administration plays 'hide the Dong' with him, he will help you dismantle your own networks in east Asia, forcing you to start from scratch. But to the Chinese players you can't do anything, not for biowarfare, not for spying, nothing.

Assuming of course any of this is true.

#8  #5 But how do you make deputy minister of security to throw away his life to implement such a program of deception, Dron?
I think, we have here a looser in internal power struggle who had to flee for his life, and trying to buy sanctuary - doesn't mean his info is 100% reliable.

#9  What is telling for me is that he chose the DIA, and they insulated him from CIA, FBI, State, DoJ DHS and the rest of the alphabet soup agencies. If he is authentic, it would make sense if those agencies are deeply penetrated/compromised, and he wanted to get away from immediate visibility. It also supports my own sense that the DIA animus that goes back to Flynn and Obama, and the massive silencing job they did on him was because he knew things at DIA that were very very damaging. If he is a false flag deep disinformation agent, wouldn't he be more interested in the deeper effects that would have across the wider spectrum of the 17 intel agencies instead of the narrow focus of the DIA? It is a wilderness of mirrors and the risk of an James Jesus Angleton massacre is possible, but while this is highly visible now, it also may be a gift to reveal how deep the rot has gone. Who knows what internal CCP politics may have prompted his defection?

#10  Who knows what internal CCP politics may have prompted his defection?

Maybe this: Corruption is rife in China’s state-directed economy, and it may have washed up on Dong. “He worked closely with Zhang Yue, who's now serving 15 years imprisonment for corruption," Dr. Han said. “Zhang was a confidant of Ma Jian, former MSS executive vice minister, who is also in prison for corruption.”

#8  From yesterday:
So don't say "Urbanism doesn't work". Say "American cities become liberal hellholes".

Urbanism works, until it doesn't.

Every city is the product of manufacturing or/and service. The Legacy Cities are a product of both.

*Service is trade route hub or/and government

The rest of the population is there to support those enterprises.

Centers of Learning, traditionally, need a gathering of information, a library, and a conductive environment, food shelter and curiosity. Information hubs were best found in major trade hubs.

That is, population density is irrelevant to the quality of a Center of Learning, other than perhaps enough people to care for the daily chores of said learners.

Traditionally.

My kids laugh at me when I tell them that to do my school work, I had to go the the library and know the Dewey Decimal System.

I laugh at them, because the have the entire knowledge of human history in their pocket and they are using it for cat memes, and can't even figure out the proper way to say meme.

So no. Cities are not pre-requisites for science, technology, or arts; they just tend to share the same location.

It ticks me when City People think they are the end-all fountain head, when in reality they are the end product. I'm not hating on cities, or city people, or even city culture. I'm just noting that connections are important.

And the problem with Urban Theory is not just an American problem.

Afghanistan
Covid Emergency at US Embassy in Afghanistan
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul on Thursday ordered staff to avoid leaving their quarters to cope with a surge of Covid-19 cases that has filled intensive care units and led to multiple evacuations and the death of at least one staff member.

An internal management notice reviewed by The Wall Street Journal described a chaotic situation at the embassy. Some 114 coronavirus cases have been confirmed among staff, it said.

The rapid spread of the illness has stretched medical facilities, according to the notice, forcing health units to create temporary wards to deal with an influx of patients. The intensive care unit at the U.S. military hospital that supports the embassy is at full capacity and several staff members have been evacuated.
-1. How could people not be vaccinated by now in the embassy.
2. Obviously, this is not just at the embassy but country-wide.

Economy
Jobless Claims Exceed Expectations - Unexpectedly!
[Washington Examiner] The number of new applications for unemployment benefits rose 37,000 last week to 412,000, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.

The number of new jobless claims represents the number of people who filed for unemployment in the previous week. The new figure was more than forecasters' expectations of 359,000 new claims. The number is also higher than the week before, which saw 375,000 filings.

Weekly jobless claims are being watched closely as the U.S. economy recovers because recent monthly jobs reports have been less than stellar and have added to concerns that the country could be in the throes of a labor shortage.

The economy fell slightly short of expectations last month and added 559,000 new jobs, a number that was below the 650,000-consensus level but was still far more positive than the surprisingly bad report from the month before. Only 278,000 jobs were added in April, a figure way below predictions of nearly 1 million additional jobs.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
After years of delays, Jordan said to nix Red Sea-Dead Sea canal with Israel, PA
[IsraelTimes] Report says kingdom will pull the plug on pipeline and instead focus on internal desalination project.
They’ve taken long enough to get to the inevitable. Because for Jordan’s rulers, working with outside Palestinians would give the local lot dangerous ideas, while working with the Joos is too icky for words.
Jordan has decided to cancel a highly touted joint project with Israel and the Paleostinian Authority for a canal linking the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, after years of the plan stagnating, the Kan public broadcaster reported Thursday.

According to the report, Amman has decided to finally pull the plug on the joint pipeline, citing unnamed sources saying there was "no real Israeli desire" for the plan to go ahead.

Instead Jordan will reportedly focus on a potential internal project that will see water pumped from the Red Sea and desalinated at a facility in Aqaba.

However,
a hangover is the wrath of grapes...
even if donors are found to fund that internal water supply project, it will take time to build and the kingdom will in any case still have a shortfall that requires continued purchase of some 50 million cubic meters of water per year from Israel supplied under the peace agreements between the two countries, Kan said.

The Red Sea-Dead Sea canal project had long been delayed by bureaucratic hurdles, financing difficulties and environmentalist objections, compounded by Israel’s lack of a functioning government for two years.

The project was further harmed by diplomatic tensions between Israel and Jordan although newly installed Foreign Minister Yair Lapid appeared to court better ties on Monday, praising King Abdullah as "an important strategic ally" and promising to work with him.

After being talked about for years, an agreement on the canal was signed in 2013 with the aim of helping to alleviate Jordan’s severe water shortage while helping replenish the fast-shrinking Dead Sea.

According to the plan, a desalination plant in Jordan would provide much-needed drinking water to the region while its leftover brine would be pumped north to the Dead Sea to replenish the fast-shrinking lake, while also producing green energy
... the attempt to produce energy without using fossil fuel. The preferred methods are solar, wind, geothermal, phlogiston, philosophers' stones, and rattling bears' teeth. The approach with the most promise involves attaching generators to perpetual motion machines, but using Words of Power to summon energy-rich demons may also work. The green in the term refers to the vast number of dollars that have been thrown at the problem since 1973 with indifferent results...
through the use of water turbines.

Israel was to see very little economic gain from the canal project, which would have cost the country around $1 billion, but as well as the environmental impact on the Dead Sea, there was also the strategic aim of the pipeline helping to maintain Jordan’s stability.

A devastating drought in Syria, from 2006 to 2011, is credited with helping to fuel the deadly civil war there, as farmers moved to the cities, where unemployment intensified discontent, which was further exacerbated by food shortages.

Jordan is one of the most water-starved countries in the world. It draws nearly 60 percent of its water from underground aquifers, extracting at twice the rate that the groundwater can be renewed. The rest comes from rivers and streams.

In the capital, Amman, water is supplied to rooftop tanks once a week; other areas of the country are supplied even less frequently.

According to one estimate, Jordan’s water is enough to sustain two million people, in a country that has close to ten million — a figure swelled over the past decade by 1.5 million refugees, most of them fleeing civil war in neighboring Syria.

Companies will be able to take over your DREAMS with commercials, scientists warn in letter calling for laws to ban them
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news] Nearly 40 dream researchers published an op-ed letter warning the public of companies taking over their dreams with commercials.

This technology, called targeted dream incubation (TDI), uses specific audio and visual stimuli, such as a movie, to induce specific imagery and sounds into the brain that people then see in their dreams.

'Our dreams cannot become just another playground for corporate advertisers,' the letter reads, urging the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to revisit its policies banning subliminal advertising to include ads that creep up in your sleep, too.
