Sharia law in the United States. CNN protest in ATL Saturday. EMP. Probably an interest rate hike coming today.

There were demonstrations across the country this past weekend against the expanding influence of Sharia Law in the United States.  Everywhere these demonstrations took place, the cockroaches of the left came scuttling out to try to suppress them. Doesn't matter what the topic, the Schumerites don't want any views expressed other than their own and they are perfectly willing to use violence to make this happen.

There's a protest against CNN scheduled for this weekend in Atlanta.

Debbie Dooley of Main Street Patriots is hoping hundreds will gather at the headquarters of CNN in Atlanta on Saturday to protest what its members consider fake news being produced by the giant media corporation.
Specifically, Dooley told Breitbart News that they object to the fake news being put out about President Donald Trump.

“We’re encouraging people to come out and support our president,” said Dooley, one of 22 national co-founders of the Tea Party and co-founder of Main Street Patriots. “And to condemn the extreme biased coverage at CNN.”

Dooley said she hopes the crowd is large enough to surround the building. So far, people from Georgia and neighboring states have signed on to participate, including one man from Pakistan who told Dooley he was having a “fake news” t-shirt made for the protest.

Dooley said:

CNN threw objective journalism out the window once Donald Trump was elected President and have begun to report DNC talking points as news. CNN can no longer claim to be a news organization that reports facts without bias, because they report innuendo with no facts as news with the intent on bringing down a democratically-elected President. They have simply become an entertainment network not to be taken seriously.

“Time for Trump supporters to get active and show the Democrats that we are very passionate about our support of President Trump and we will fight hard to pass his agenda,” the notice of the event states on Main Street Patriots’ website.

“Bring your signs and let’s show CNN that we support President Trump and call them out for becoming an arm of the DNC intent on bringing down President Trump with biased coverage and false innuendos,” the invitation on Main Street Patriots’ Facebook page states.

Main Street Patriots was co-founded by Ralph King, a Tea Party activist who served as a Trump delegate from Ohio, served as a Presidential Elector from Ohio in the Electoral College, and is the national co-founder of Tea Party for Trump.


The protest will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at CNN, located at 190 Marietta St. NW, Atlanta, Georgia.





Rumor control has it the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates today.

If you have any kind of loans, that's bad news.  Fixed rate loans won't be effected, of course, but continual incremental rate increases by the Fed can "eat your lunch" over time.   If you want to calculate new payments after the rate increase, here' s a very simple program for doing so.

Cartoons:









North Korea and EMP Weapons:









There have been several good programs on grid failure related events in the last few years.
One of the best was this British production.






An American version followed:






There are also several movies out there on the subject.  Some are good, some not so much so.







And there are a great many books. Here are just a few of the better ones.

Kunstler:








Forstchen:



note: I haven't read these last two by Forstchen. They come highly recommended by someone who has, and I have asked my library to temp loan copies for me.




Crawford



Not all of these books are solely related to an EMP or grid failure, but they are all studies of life without electricity.  Some of them, by the same author, are better than others. But taken as a whole they're good reading. Digital copies are a lot cheaper, but I think they are all still available in print, ast reasonable prices.

Thought for the day:

  1. I have only seen American Blackout, but I thought it was pretty good. I have read the first two Forschen books, but not the last. I enjoyed the first a lot more than the second, but both were good.

    1. Lisa, CC read all of them and he said the same thing, that the first book was the best.

      I watched American Blackout and the British version, and the difference in culture was very apparent. They were both good. I put the videos for both on the post because as far as I can tell, the DVD versions are not available in the U.S.

  2. The Kunstlers are really good, some better than others but still a good read.

    1. I thought the first book was the best. I don't like Kunstler worth a damn, but I do like his fiction. His book "The Long Emergency" is pretty good. He wrote another non fiction book, and I bought it but it wasn't too hot. Can't even remember the name of it now.
