Friday: News clips. What happened in Tennessee vs what happened in Connecticut. An op ed article that sums it up.

Spectacular sunset last night. I can't really see it here at the house because the forest hems me in so much this time of the year that I can only see a little of the sky over the meadow. But I watched it on the Brasstown Bald web camera.  Today is shaping up to be another day of heavy rain and thunderstorms. Didn't make it into town yesterday, but I'm going to try to get there again today.

While I'm in town, I'll do my daily walk.  These pictures were taken at the park when the water was down. We've had enough rain to get the creek and the river back up to normal now.

Here's the rain forest surrounding my meadow and buildings. At this time of year, it's like a solid wall of green.

Here's an air photo . You can see my meadow in the upper left. 

Not much to tell today, and not much really planned .  I'll just see how the day unfolds.

News Clips:

Democrats try to use shootings in D.C. to attack gun ownership.

D.C. Shooting were the actions of a left wing extremist.

MS-13.  Growing stronger.

Guess who's coming to dinner!

Here's some good news from Georgia. The two escaped convicts who murdered two guards and disappeared were captured in Tennessee when they tried to steal a vehicle from a drive way.  The homeowner and his neighbor produced their guns and held the killers for police.

 This story would have ended a lot differently if the citizens had not been armed.  Probably like the case in Connecticut where the two paroled prisoners murdered a man's wife and two daughters while he cringed on the floor.

Convicts captured.

It could just have easily ended like this, if the Tennessee people had been the same kind of sheeple as the Connecticut man was.

An Op Ed article that makes perfect sense.

Resist movement, violence are tearing America apart
Antifa, others terrorizing America

By Judson Phillips - - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

The Washington Times

The first skirmishes of a second American civil war have begun.

No, this is not a metaphorical analogy to that bloody conflict that killed approximately 620,000 Americans. It is an objective statement of the reality in America.

Since the election of 2016, the left has gone crazy. Their version of the tea party is called Resistance, and the spearhead of that is a loosely formed terrorist group called Antifa.  Antifa is short for Anti-Fascist. The irony of their name is not lost on those who actually know history, as their tactics are straight from the fascist playbook.

In the past few months, these groups have repeatedly disrupted peaceful pro-Trump rallies. They have called for and used violence against people who support the president or disagree with them and even against members of the media who will report things Antifa doesn’t want reported.

Just a few days ago, a woman associated with Antifa attacked a police horse, using a flagpole with nails extending from it. At the same incident in Pennsylvania, other Antifa terrorists had sharpened bamboo poles and baseball bats.

Conservatives and those perceived to be conservatives have been attacked. The weapons have included glitter  gel, urine bombs, chains, bicycle locks and baseball bats. As their violence becomes more intense, it is now only a question of when, not if,someone will be killed.

Violence is not limited to pro-Trump rallies. The same Antifa group has made college campuses virtually no-go zones for conservatives. Noted conservatives such as Ann Coulter, Milo Yiannopoulos and Ben Shapiro cannot go onto many college campuses to speak without having their events disrupted to the point where they cannot go on.

If this violence continues, the choices are not good. The left-wing academic establishment has quickly surrendered to these groups. They are allowed to riot on campus and even given relief from homework and exams so they can riot.

Is there a solution short of a real, violent civil war in America?

California and Hawaii have recently announced that they would sign agreements with other nations so they could join the Paris climate change accord. Liberal states have this amazing ability to read things in the U.S. Constitution that people haven’t been able to  find for over 200 years, but they ignore the plain language of the document that organizes the United States of America.

At this point, is there any way that America can hold together as a single, united country?
When states are wanting to sign their own treaties with other nations and when one-half of the political spectrum in this nation wants to strip the other half of its rights and engage in violence against them, survival seems improbable.

After Donald Trump was elected as president, the hashtag  #Calexit  started trending on social media. Members of the radical left pushed the idea of California leaving the United States. That idea was tried once before with less-than-great results, but maybe it is time for a peaceful solution that would allow California to leave the Union.

There was a time when Americans, despite their differences, clearly identified as Americans above all else. That time has now passed.

Thought for the Day:


  1. Hey Harry,


    Feed the MS-13 members to the Panthers in North Georgia.

    1. I think the panthers would get indigestion, you know how greasy Hispanics are. They might get food poisoning, too, from eating garbage.

  2. I lived a year near Stone Mountain when I lived close to Atlanta. I remember it rained a lot there. They had a vine weed that was pretty much taking over. I think it was Kudzu. Do you get a lot of that where you live?


    1. Stone Mountain was once a really nice place. Now, if you stray from the park, it can be dangerous. kudzu is from Japan. It , like the water lilly plants in Southern Georgia, was brought in because the state thought it would serve a useful purpose. Instead, both have become plagues.

      We have a lot of kudzu here. It can completely cover abandoned buildings in a remarkably short time.

  3. Harry - i have been staying on all of your most recent posts, which are excellent, btw. my problem is - i don't know what to say??? except that you are providing links and news of what is really going on down in the US and it is frightening. it's getting to the point of being beyond crazy??? how can that be???

    i have absolutely nothing to offer except please stay safe. and try your best to get your family with you. we both send much love to you and yours. and captain crunch too.

    your friend,

    1. Kymber, I don't know what to say about all this myself. Even the sixties during the Vietnam war weren't like this. It was bad then, but it's worse now. There's no common ground at all between the two camps, and if the left keeps growing more violent, they're going to get some harsh pushback. Then, who knows what will happen?

      I am pretty safe up here. I wanted to go to the rally in Atlanta this weekend, but I'm not driving all the way down there into that hell hole.

      Good to hear from you, as it always is.

    2. Talk about crazy, I just read that Canada is passing a law that will make it illegal to address somebody with the wrong pronoun. It would be considered hate speech. Liberalism is a mental disease, and it is catching

    3. The left seems to be completely out of touch with reality. It would be ludicrous if it weren't so indicative of serious problems in society.

  4. I have no problem with allowing California to leave, as long as we build a big, strong wall along their border to keep any of them from coming back to the U.S. Jana

    1. Jana, that was such a beautiful state in the early sixties. Now it's a Third World lunatic parlor. The sooner they start their own Republic of Cloud Coo Coo land, the better off the rest of us will be. Maybe they will annex the crazy parts of Oregon and Washington too.

  5. Hey Harry,


    Feed the Antifa members to the Panthers in North Georgia also.

    "a woman associated with Antifa attacked a police horse, using a flagpole with nails extending from it. At the same incident in Pennsylvania, other Antifa terrorists had sharpened bamboo poles and baseball bats"

    I am looking forward to the news headlines in big bold red letters on Drudgereport "Several Antifa Members Gunned Down by Police"

    I will pull a bottle of Crown Royal and a can of Coca Cola out of storage and proceed to toast and celibrate by opening and closing my remote garage door 'up and down' on the neck of a black clothed 'dummy' with a red bandana on its face.

    That would make for one hell of a youtube video:)

    At some point 'Americans will get fed up with Antifa and the police will proceed to 'remove the kid gloves' and life will be made very uncomfortable for Antifa members.

    1. I think it's going to be a long, hot summer. Antifa is getting emboldened, and summer is the traditional time for BLM and it's minions to show their collective asses. I don't think we are going to be bored. I won't be sorry if someone, the police or others, stacks up a few of the black clad ninja. They richly deserve it, and until there is some risk associated with their antics, they aren't going to stop.

  6. There was a RESIST booth up at the Juneteenth celebration on Marietta Square today. I was happy to see that there were police officers strolling around (don't usually see them at events on the Square).

    I took the Ben Carson bumper sticker off my car yesterday because I'm getting a little nervous at how openly hateful people are getting against conservatives and Christians. No sense in provoking them.

    1. Chipmunk, another fellow and I had a big discussion about bumper stickers. He said he didn't have any because he didn't want to get hassled. I said I didn't want to take mine off because I felt like it was letting myself be intimidated.

      But the last time we went to Chattanooga, my wife was really worried and wanted me to cover mine up with something on our Jeep. She was afraid we would be attacked because some of my bumper stickers are like red flags to the Goblins.

      I haven't taken them off, but I think if I have to go to Chattanooga again, I may just rent a car. It doesn't cost much, and I won't have to worry about getting into a nasty situation that could wind me up in jail for shooting people.

    2. That's just it: the thugs wouldn't get in trouble for attacking you, but you would for "inciting" them and defending yourself. Best to just avoid the whole situation if possible.

    3. That's an accurate assessment, Chipmunk. Goblins don't have much to lose, they get arrested so often and turned loose, the thought doesn't phase them. I'm not interested in interacting with that kind of people on any level
