The Time Grows Short My Friends

Under three months until election day. A doddering fool who was never very smart to begin with picks an empty shell as his running mate. Kamala will do whatever she is told in order to gain and retain power, just ask Downtown Willie Brown. Biden is leading in the polls all over the place and while I understand the inherent problem with polling in 2020, demographic changes plus a media that learned their lesson plus what will certainly be widespread voter fraud equals a tough road for Trump's re-election, assuming he even wants to be re-elected. Kamala Harris is a wet dream for the anti-2nd Amendment crowd and old politicians who have a hankering for younger skanks alike.

The general ammo shortage shows no signs of abating and if anything prices continue to skyrocket. The manufacturers I work with who produce AR-15s are telling me that they are months out on production. For example, CMMG who makes premier quality ARs and the Banshee PCC is at least 12 weeks out on production....



12 weeks from today is November 9th, almost a week after the election. Rock River Arms, another higher end manufacturer of AR-15s, is running 90 days out on AR uppers. In other words, if you don't have your orders in pretty soon, there is a decent chance you won't get them until next year and by that time Biden could be sworn in and that could quickly be the end of the AR industry.

Meanwhile violence continues unabated across the country, hidden from view by the media but there nevertheless.

Portland has been dealing with nightly riots for months and a motorist was nearly beaten to death a few days ago. American citizens are facing the grim choice between getting dragged from the car and given the Reginald Denny treatment or using lethal force to protect themselves and likely facing arrest for doing so. Getting kicked in the head or hit with a blunt object is often lethal so I know which option I will choose.

City after city reports record breaking violent crime. We know about the rampant crime in places like Chicago, Baltimore and St. Louis but now it is spreading to other, smaller cities.

In Cincinnati, Ohio where I worked for a number of years, there were 18 people shot in 4 incidents overnight Saturday with four people killed. This is just part of the trend in Cincinnati in 2020.

There have been 110 more shootings in Cincinnati this year when compared with 2019 to date. There have been at least 326 fatal and nonfatal shootings in Cincinnati this year, a 55% increase compared with the same period last year. 

Shootings have been elevated all year. Homicides are also up. Sunday's killings bring the total to at least 65. Last year at this time, there had been 46 homicides. 

Cinci has always had some trouble spot, like Over-The-Rhine, but these numbers are huge in what is usually a quiet city. At this rate, Cincinnati will have more shootings that any year since 1971, the year I was born.

A friend in Louisville, Kentucky reports that L'ville has more murders already in 2020 than all of 2019 with more than four months to go in 2020. Carjackings are also skyrocketing.

In Denver, Colorado the story is the same:

The city is on course to have the highest number of homicides seen in the city in a single year since 2004, data collected by The Denver Post shows. Fifty-eight people have died in homicides so far this year, including seven who have died in shootings and stabbings on Federal Boulevard.

Philadelphia has been a slaughterhouse all year:

7 Dead, 25 Hurt in 25 Shootings During Another Violent Weekend in Philadelphia

It was yet another violent weekend for Philadelphia plagued by the highest number of homicides the city has seen up to this point in more than 13 years. 

Deputy Managing Director Vanessa Garrett Harley, the city’s top official for violence prevention, and Temple University gun policy researcher Jason Gravel told NBC10 that they believe the COVID-19 pandemic could be compounding a gun violence epidemic that has been getting worse in recent years.

Lots of these stories quote the cops as saying that coronavirus is the reason that shootings are up, not that police pulling back has emboldened the criminals. We all know better.

In nearby Fort Wayne, the numbers are grim. I pulled this from the webpage of the Fort Wayne police department:


The increase in charges for assault and arson are likely tied to the "mostly peaceful protests"/riots and looting over the summer but murder is way up. My post in January looking at homicides in Fort Wayne, The Color Of Crime In Fort Wayne, identified 29 people murdered in Fort Wayne/Allen in 2019. We are going to blow right past that number in 2020.

Just as a note, I didn't look very hard for this information but most people don't really know this is going on. They think things are bad in whatever city they are near but that it is isolated when in fact it is almost universal.

What do you think things are going to be like in a few months? One of two things will happen:

1. Trump wins re-election against all the odds. 

If Trump wins again, the Left, having been thwarted time and again in trying to reverse the election of 2016, will go crazy. They know that Ruth Bader Ginsburg won't make it four more years. I would expect serious violence to break out across the country and I wouldn't be surprised to see an attempt at a violent coup. The Secret Service is good but if 2000 armed antifa storm the White House gates, what would they do? It wouldn't surprise me if the military was quietly put on standby on election night, just in case. Regardless of the winning margin, the Left will claim the election is illegitimate. States and cities might stop recognizing Federal authority. Bottom line, the Left won't tolerate a Trump win. They can't.

2. Biden/Harris wins

If placeholder Joe wins, I have been predicting pogroms of vengeance against White, middle-America Trump voters. It would surprise me if we didn't have some sort of false flag mass shooting involving the rare White male shooter by the end of the year or early into next year to give political cover for politicians to pass a new "assault weapons" ban.

When AR/AK rifles are banned, if the ban includes a ban on current owners, it will become a test of wills. Citizens won't surrender these rifles, nor handguns with "high capacity magazines". Will the government try to force the issue, leading to bloodshed and mass revolt, or will the government let people thumb their noses at the Feds?

Either way, the unrest is just getting started and with less than 90 days until the most contentious election in my lifetime, you are running short of time.

  1. The largest city near me (Charlotte NC) is on pace to break it's 108 person highest ever murder rate from last year. Already at 76 for this year. It's definitely not isolated to any specific city.

    1. For now, the violence is mostly contained within the black community as it has been for a long time, just at higher levels, but I see it spreading as they realize that most White people won't defend themselves.

  2. When Trump wins there will be a blackout for a while. Electricity runs everything except violence.

    1. Joe, I can't imagine something you could say that I would dismiss out of hand. If Trump wins, everything is on the table.

  3. I expect a landslide win for the Dems, in the House, Senate, and the Presidency. Expect a constitutional convention in 2021, to get rid of the 2nd amendment and to add a new reparations amendment. Expect the additions of at least four new Supreme Court justices also.
    This country is doomed, only war can save us now.

    1. I am not thinking a Senate landslide but enough to change control, esp. when you consider the RINO Republicans like Susan Collins and Mitt Romney. Increased control in the House. An electoral college slaughter. Definitely more justices on SCOTUS unless Clarence Thomas makes a deal to resign in return for not adding justices. We are in the beginning of the end stages.

    1. You can feel it and sense it from people you talk to. People are preparing for a massive change.

  5. >Citizens won't surrender these rifles, nor handguns with "high capacity magazines".
    Yeah they will. One at a time if necessary, but "Red flag confiscations" have already taken place, with no backlash.
    >Will the government try to force the issue, leading to bloodshed and mass revolt
    There won't be mass revolt. Let's look at the the current climate. Things are the worst they've ever been, murder is being indiscriminately carried out every day and shows no sign of abatement, unfettered violence on a country wide scale and the only villians who get arrested are racist Whites who try to defend themselves. If ever it was time to revolt, it was a year ago. Who (or what) would the mass revolt be against anyway?

    1. 1. A couple here and a couple there, but tens of millions won't

      2. A revolt like the revolutionary war with uniforms and generals? No but tens of millions of people refusing to comply? That is a revolt of it's own.
