Unfortunately, no one wants to hear the truth.Most would rather stick their fingers in their ears and pretend it's all going to be better. Have you not met most people out here? This "situation" is a real eye opener seeing all the dogs happy to just roll over. I hold little to no hope this will get better without mass problems.

I doubt anybody would get ten recruits for sanity from sitting them together and playing your latest video, Karl.

It would be useful mostly for figuring out who one's real friends were and who could be safely written off and shunned---"cancelled," if you please---without losing anything of value, because they will be worse than useless when times get really tough.

Honestly, at this point, that would be most of them.

The only thing on anybody's mind is 9mm and 5.56.

From Breitbart article lead in -

"Six months or a year ago, an observer might have thought that this presidential campaign would be waged over impeachment, or Iran, or the coronavirus, or maybe China. Instead, were having an election over rioting, violenceand law and order. On August 25, CNNs Don Lemon said of the riot issue, "It is the only thing right now that is sticking.""

Breitbart article link - https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/09/05/pinkerton-the-crime-election-trump-vs-biden/

But this podcast is behind the curve for this came out of Portland, OR from a solid (I personally met him 20-22 years ago - pre-Y2K, remember that?) one the ground observer - Doug MacIntosh aka Doomer Doug and here is his blog post in full for August 31, 2020 so you will read it!

OPEN CIVIL WAR IS NOW UPON US 8-31-2020

ESSAYS
24 Comments

In the Two Towers movie, which was the best of the three Lord of the Rings movies, in my opinion, there is a scene between Aragorn and Theoden, King of Rohan, where they are arguing about what to do as the forces of Sauron mass for an invasion of Gondor. Aragorn says, Open war is upon you, whether you like it or not. And so I say to you all, my loyal blog readers, open Civil War is now upon the USA, and ESPECIALLY DOWNTOWN PORTLAND WHERE I LIVE. You may have whatever illusions you wish to, where you live, and whatever you plan to do in these dark times. Still, the Rubicon has now been crossed with the brazen murder of that incredibly naive Trumpster. I mean, what did those naive, MAGA hat wearing yahoos think was going to happen when they came sauntering into downtown Portland, my turf, an area OWNED BY BLM AND ANTIFA. Did they seriously think these Marxist SCUM WOULDNT WASTE THEM. Seriously? The only reason I have lived through the last three months is a mixture of cunning, situational awareness, and the ability to unleash deadly, lethal force if I need to. It also helps that I havent been outside my apartment after 6pm since March. If you do stupid things, with stupid people, in stupid places, you will regret it. The place where he was murdered was about 4 blocks away from where I live now. In fact, I have stood on the exact same spot where he was shot as recently as a week ago. You take antifa, blm seriously, like I have, or YOU WILL DIE A STUPID DEATH. CIVIL WAR TWO IS NOT COMING: IT IS HERE!
So here is the situation in downtown Portland, related to the complete collapse of the social order.
One: The Feckless political leadership. Worthless Wheeler, Medusa, and both the city council and Multnomah county council openly followed policies that let a Trump supporter get murdered as a result. Trump, well the Trump, Brown and Wheeler battle has little direct impact on daily life here in Sodom and Gommarah on the Willamette. The Antifa blm types are strutting around now, a smirk on their face, or a cheetah up in the tree licking its chops are a kill. Well now, they have made a a fatal mistake of not realizing the kind of blowback they have now unleashed. Trump wont send in the tanks, and Brown and Wheeler wont ask for them, so we are in kind of a stalemate where the armed militias are pondering what they will do. And it has put the fear of God in the blm and antifa types that they now consider 5,000 pissed off MAGA hat wearing redneck types, are going to come back into downtown Portland, only this time they will have AR-15s and 1000 rounds and be looking to shoot anything that looks like blm or antifa, and they really all do look alike, they see. And you better F#%%% believe that the people living here are pondering that, despite what brown and the rest think they are TERRIFIED of a MAGA hat wearing invasion that leaves 2,000 blm types rotting on the streets.

That is the context, here in downdown as the collapse of the social order plays out to its inevitable end.
Now in terms of my personal situation, well lets just say anybody who can has left the general area, especially downtown. I did laundry today so I cant say what is really going on. All the construction workers are still around. For whatever reason they are still building the new Ritz hotel, as if anybody will ever stay in it. This is what I mean by this thin layer of normal smoothed over a social order in chaos. The normal level of crazy, not related to blm antifa has also doubled, plus the homeless types are coming in like the Danes into England in 900 AD. :vik:

I now carry two revolvers on me, with a total of 60 rounds, in speed strips, speed loaders and in the loaded revolvers. I am about as ready as I can be under the circumstances. I rate the city of Portland as in a state of civil war every night, with the outbreak of violence, on a nightly basis, as inevitable.

This has already ended in blood and fire, gang.

You should expect my situation to spread to every major urban city here in CONUS, as early as Labor Day, and certainly no later than the election on November 3rd, WHICH I NO LONGER EXPECT TO HAPPEN IN AN ORDERLY FASHION.

And no matter what these Marxist fools want in Portland, the National Guard, or even RA combat troops will be driving around Portland, also as early as Labor Day, or no later than Halloween, in my opinion.

Lock and load. Keep your powder, although that doesnt really apply anymore, dry. Expect the unexpected. Assume anything, can happen anywhere, to anybody, and at any time The US Republic has had a good run of 244 years. It is now over. It will collapse, as soon as the end of 2020 into blood, fire, death and chaos. I will see you all on the other side. Take care.

seems like people in other countries are getting it, worth a viewing:



about half-way through this businessman starts making similar points as what is discussed in this forum:



i used to eat at the place that he profiles in the video. Great food, but the owners did suck every dime out of it. Nobody makes anything even approaching perfect in NYC in the service businesses or dining.

NO... You're not crazy Karl ! But as far as getting 10 people to looks at your presentation, I think I have no chance at all.

I have no children of my own but my wife has 2. With they spouses thats 4. We are just about to have a family feud with this covid ****.
My 2nd door neighbor as well as my backyard neighbor have their eyes rolling wondering what I'm talking about. They have no clue. My 3rd door neighbor backsup 1 ft if I advance 1 ft towards him.

So I struck out 7 times out of 7. The worst part... I'm MSc Chemistry !?!?!?
You'd think that they would listen to a hardcore scientist like me ! NOPE !!! They are all too scared zombies ! What a pitty. They'll really have to live through it like our parents did in the 1940's - 1950's before they open up their eyes. Too bad it's gonna be too late. I'm done with them.

As far as grocery goes you are right. I get bullied at the smaller grocery store even though I tell them I had a pulmonary embolism and don't want to wear a mask so I go to Costco where they give me a plastic card to clip on my t-shirt and they gladly let me in. A **** world and they dont even see it.

Masks are critical in order for us to reach herd immunity. This allows people to constantly touch their faces and spread all sorts of viruses. It is actually a stroke of "genius" and will make the need for a CV vaccine moot.

If people would only use masks on cruise ships during Nora virus outbreaks that virus would quickly run its course and be over. But no... they clean everything and people wash their hands slowing the spread. Just get it over with: "Use that mask". :-) Hawaii is the key!

@m1919a2 ....don't forget 300 Blackout :)

No one seems to want to solve this problem and/or admit their initial projections of COVID were wrong. Right now there is no power in "yes" or "compromise," there is only power in "no." Stoking the fear of COVID is allowing Marxist authoritarian fantasies on all sides to come true it seams. And everyone in DC is in ass covering mode is seems.

The Left is using the riots and supposed "racial injustice" to embolden their base ...and paying them off with aid at a level more of what most were making as Baristas, or teachers, or thieves...or whatever they were doing. They are using COVID to enforce their will and try to make people fall in line (sheeple?). And no one can convince me that they are not trying to keep the economy purposfully depressed till after the election. Also, if everything stays shut down young people can have the time to go out and "protest." And they can release low level criminals so they won't get COVID....so they can go out and "protest."

Most of the lower wage workers who still have jobs that I know are actually loving the power the new rules give them...they get to yell at people and kick them out of stores for not following guidelines..it's an authoritarian dream come true.

The Right is using the same social unrest and COVD fear to try to shuffle more of the moderates to the Right. The skilled white collar workers, regardless of political affiliation, have decided they like "working from home" and getting paid the same amount pre-COVID and don't want to spend 40-60 hrs cooped up in an office again.

Me...I'm stockpiling food and and picked up the hobby of building ARs...I'm actually thinking of leaving corporate America on the East Coast and moving back to the Midwest and coming a gunsmith/armorer. I've also started fishing and camping again like I did in my youth...it comes back quick and feels great to cook up a Bass for dinner.

If I put my conspiracy theory hat on, I start to think that the political/controlling class WANTS this thing to turn hot...they want the guns. Their idea of a proper 2A is a six shooter with one bullet in your pocket...or held by the sheriff.

@Billhrny - Regarding the projections, the experts are saying that the mitigation efforts they suggested such as lockdowns and masks are the reason why the deaths are less. They ignore Sweden.

Heads they win, tails they win, its a rigged game for them with the media compliance.

This made me feel a bit better about things overall. At least the Brits have enough tradition left in them to allow folks to gather in front of the Prime Minister's residence and sound off. I believe the general public is slowly getting fed up with all the Covid BS. There were many comments posted from people who were glad to see they aren't the only ones thinking in a sane fashion.

It will likely take much longer than what Karl proposes, but it appears the snowball has begun rolling down the mountainside. Whether that's enough is yet to be seen. I don't know if an organized resistance will ever form. It seems more likely to me that at some point everyone will just ignore the official line of crap and go on with their lives, though I'm sure the world won't be "the same" afterward.



The video is under 2.5 minutes long, but the tune sticks in your head for a lot longer than that. Some of the commenters posted the lyrics in case you have a hard time deciphering the British accents.
