Dindunuffin, Georgia Terrorist Threatening to Kill Black People Was Actually a Black Woman Creating a Hoax Crime

October 2, 2021 | Sundance | 54 Comments

GEORGIA – […] Since last December, a Douglasville, Georgia neighborhood has been gripped in fear due to racially charged messages that have anonymously been left in the mailboxes of residents of color, reports Fox News. But now police said they have made an arrest and the alleged culprit is not who the neighbors expected.

Wednesday, the Douglasville Police Department confirmed that they had filed criminal charges against Terresha Lucas. Lucas is a 30-year-old Black woman who they believe threatened people in her community while posing as a Ku Klux Klan member...

A friend, 37 and in excellent physical health, has served 16 years in the Army Infantry and National Guard. Did a couple of tours in Iraq and saw plenty of combat. Came home with PTSD but has overcome it and is just a great guy with a great wife and two cute kids.
The NG says get vaccinated or get the boot. He has decided to take the boot even though it will cost him his benefits.
He is by no means an anti vaxxer; just wants to know that what he is putting in his body will not cost him his health in the long term. The state doesn't believe he has the right to decide that for himself.
His body; their choice.

From Ace:

"Poppy Anderson was concerned for her beloved cat, Brioche, when he wouldn�t stop drinking water.

The 18-year-old owner was worried her 10-year-old kitty was suffering from kidney failure � and even forked out �200 in vet fees to check up on him.

But Brioche�s excessive thirst was actually down to a far less serious, and pretty hilarious, reason.

The moggy had been munching on chilli flakes in the kitchen."

Canberra went from welcoming the ‘Asian Century’ to arming itself with nuclear-powered submarines in less than a decade of the Chinese president’s rule.

I’ll leave now before I get irritated, that was an effort in imprecision that needs its own zip code.

They are in the process of de-commissining 4 of the LCS's; the Independence and Freedom have already been de-commissioned. The next 4 are the Coronado, Detroit, Little Rock and Detroit.

All of them just @ 10 years old and sucking up millions of dollars in repair costs.

The Arleigh Burke works. The new frigate looks good. The whole LCS project was a complete waste. Nothing was learned and we had a bunch of undergunned rambling wrecks.

In the meantime, Japan's new super destroyers are capable of being converted to Jeep type carriers. I'm sure the new PM will continue their military expansion. They have to because they really can't rely on the United States anymore. The SK's have a weenie president but are still forging ahead because they have no choice with NorthKorea. If we can get our heads out and reinforce the Vietnamese and Filipinos it will cause China major agita.

Taiwan has to step up as well in their own defense. Singapore's AF is very capable and their job is to control the Malacca Straigts, which would really screw China over.

Things don't seem to be aligning very well for the Emperor. But we have our heads up our you know where's.

The PLAN is very much a top down structure, which does not bode well for independent action. No one is interested in invading anyone else but China, so it's about control of the Taiwan Straights.

Years ago there was discussion of unmanned subs that could just sit on the ocean floor and launch on command. Don't know if that went anywhere. Thewas also discussion of converting some freighters into missile ships a la the 18th/early 19th Century. Those would be force multipliers. Raining bomblets and HE on Chinese airfields would definitely put a cramp in their style.

The British used rocket ships during the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812 very successfully. Scared the hell out of the French. Don't know how much physical damage they did.

The Chinese have a lot of rocket boats themselves. The Type 22 is stealthy, but not really.

Let's hope they have some common sense and back off.

Morning Clarice. The only thing electrical vehicles are catching is fire. Strange thing to subsidize.

clarice

No kidding. But they are GREEN.

Sammy Small

I don't think Matthew Continetti realizes that all of these inconveniences must be embraced as part of the "fundamental transformation" of America. Get used to it. And the $3.5T booster is just to help cement in the human infrastructure to go to the next phase. It can't be overcome with just a new administration. It took decades to get us to this point and it will take just as long to undo it if its even possible.

Jim Eagle

Did someone mention Green:

Durham’s seeming lack of urgency strongly suggests that he has already found overt acts in furtherance of the conspiracy stretching into 2017 - and maybe beyond - so he is not concerned about statute of limitation issues.

Sammy "It took decades to get us to this point and it will take just as long to undo it if its even possible."

To me, seeing that it is global, and seeing that we are not the people, here or anywhere, that dragged us out of the Middle Ages in the first place, and even in this of all countries we no longer share common roots, heritages, beliefs, experiences or values, BUT given that the Bell Curve of human natures remain as they always have been since Cain & Able, we are going to have to recede back into a New Dark Age, knowing that the law of the jungle will reassert itself, before we evolve once again into a people who can recreate some sort of society that encourages a flourishing of the best humanity has to offer the greatest number of its members.

Men who want to be left alone.

sammy, that booster is going nowhere IMO. And neither is Biden or the squad. They've managed to alienate too many people with their nonsense.

Melinda, I think the likely explanation for Durham's seeming pace is that organized crime investigations can take forever. In the early 2000s, I was on a special organized crime grand jury for the federales. We met over two years. Some of the cases we started with were still plodding along when we left. Add in the inevitable slowdown due to the Xi Floo, and the time it is taking is not surprising.

Thomas Collins

Mueller's investigation didn't take that long because there was "no there there".

henry

Occasional perspective. Except WI does not register firearms.

@fltdoc1

Last year, just in the state of Wisconsin,569,000 deer hunting licenses (gun) were issued - 569,000 people with at very minimum 569,000 guns-all legal and registered. (only 1 fatal hunting-related GSW)

As far as numbers , that would rank us the worlds 8th largest army

--seeing that we are not the people, here or anywhere, that dragged us out of the Middle Ages in the first place--

Nobody was dragged out of the Middle Ages. The Roman Empire [and the Republic before it and the Greeks before them] were brutal and violent dictatorial regimes [yes even the Republic and Athens].
When Rome fell Europe transitioned from a decrepit brutal dictatorship into several smaller brutal dictatorships.
It can and is plausibly argued that European society could only begin evolving toward self governance upon the fall of the suffocating, sclerotic Empire.
The people who paint Rome and the Renaissance as shiny, healthy, bright and clean as opposed to the dirty, diseased, stupid and squalid Middle Ages are almost universally the guys who birthed the Renaissance and their admirers.
It's the historical equivalent of climate science by historical proxy except their hockey stick occurred five or six hundred years ago.

clarice

Interesting that you say that, Iggy. I remember decades ago in college when a visiting professor from Italy tried to persuade us of that and we, dummies, dismissed that.

jimmyk

Yes, remember they used to be called the "Dark Ages," a term apparently coined by Petrarch, who was Italian and probably nostalgic for the Roman Empire. This summarizes why that view no longer holds sway:

https://www.historyhit.com/why-were-the-early-middle-ages-called-the-dark-ages/

As Iggy noted, there was plenty of progress during those years, whereas the last few hundred years of the Empire were one catastrophe after another, including succession of coups d'etat that would make even banana republics blush.

Great pieces, Clarice. Does anyone know what is the latest on MM--is she still in the hospital?

I assume Miss M is still in the hospital. Haven’t heard anything.

"Chinese have landed at Bagram"...

and have our situation well in hand.

What next?

A POTUS who abandons $85 billion in equipment and got 13 servie people killed is tellnig you 100% is 90%; that $2000 is $1400; tht he drove and 18-wheeler-- and a $3.5 trillion bill will cost "nothing."

Worst. POTUS. Ever. ... and Carter smiled.
