Defunding Rioters On Welfare

| August 30, 2020

Here’s a splendid idea:  Defund rioters who are felons.

From the article:

The legislation would remove eligibility for buffed coronavirus unemployment benefits for anyone convicted of criminal conduct at and during the course of a protest. The federal government has been paying for buffed welfare payments in the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, and Banks raised concern that left-wing rioters are taking advantage of the welfare to embrace a lifestyle of full-time riot agitation and political crime. – article

The terms of the legislation are at the link above.

The fact that Banks is a Republican from Indiana will probably get boos and hisses from the left side of the political fence. In addition, one obstacle to this is identifying who the people are who are engaging in criminal conduct at these events. Criminal conduct includes looting, destruction of property and arson, among other criminal acts, all of which are recorded by the perps themselves, as we’ve seen. There seems to be a need in them to let the entire world know that while they engage in vandalism, they’d be disowned by the real Vandals. I’m not sure that even the Huns or Goths (Ostro or Visi) would claim them.

But back to criminal conduct: in order to defund these twits at either the state or federal level, they have to be ID’d and that requires arresting them. That also requires catching them in the act and in reality, will likely require an increase in the numbers of law enforcement personnel at all levels. This will have a tangible effect on city, county, state and federal-level budgeting.

No issues here with the proposal itself, but the methods involved in enforcing it require taking other issues, both logistic and financial, into consideration.

    Well, unless rioting pays, they don’t have day jobs. Makes sense.

    • USMC Steve says:

      It does pay. Soros has an organization called Crowds on Demand, that has been paying people, particularly Antifa types, to show up and cause trouble wherever and whenever possible. That is not the only one like that either.

      At many riots, there are photos of busses that brought the rioters in from other places.

    Unfortunately lib judges are turning the little cherubs loose and dropping the charges as fast as they are caught

  3. Commissar says:

    They identified the Portland shooter that shot the Patriot Prayer protestor as Michael Reinoehl, a “professional” snowboarder,

    I would link sources but you all can google his name and pick your source. As this information spreads sources you trust will start discussing it.

    Any source i give you all will likely dismiss.

    Apparently, Michael Reinoehl has a gunshot wound to his arm. I am not sure if that occurred at the time of the shooting of the Patriot Prayer counter-protestor, or if it occurred from an earlier shooting.

    A convoy of 699 vehicles full of Trump supporters came to counter protest. Most of them armed.

    There are videos of the driving by and throwing things at protestors and driving by and shooting protestors with paintball guns.

    There are some unsubstantiated claims that some are taking potshots. But I can’t find a video of that.

    So people are speculating he was shot by another Trump supporter then “got revenge” by shooting the Patriot Prayer counter protestor.

    But that is all speculation. And it is based on he fact that he appears to already have a bandage on his arm in the video at the time of the Patriot Prayer shooting.

    • Commissar says:

      Correction 600 vehicles..not 699.

      Typo. Tiny keyboard.

    • JarHead Pat says:

      Oh you commie dirtball, none of what you said is even remotely true, but that is the commie way huh scumbag.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Gee whiz, JarHead, the Great Commie Numbskull Commissar can’t find any videos of stuff that was all over the interwebs last night and before, and that includes perps getting shots here and there.

        They were everywhere. Such poverty-stricken search skills. No wonder he can’t find real work.

      • Commissar says:

        Exactly what is not true?

    • Sapper3307 says:

      He says he is a “Vet”, is he your battle buddy?

      • Commissar says:

        No. Was he yours?

        And I am not sure I buy the vet thing either.

        • Anonymous says:

          If has was just treated at a vet maybe…

        • USMC Steve says:

          It has been relatively reliably reported that he “was in the Army and hated it.”

          Based upon the anarchist rioters past behaviors, he shot that guy with no provocation at all. That is how they behave. The Trump types have yet to just start dropping bodies unless someone tries to harm them first.

    • Sapper3307 says:

    • timactual says:

      ” Most of them armed.”

      Got a source for that?

      Never mind, I know you can’t disclose sources and methods to us right-wing types. We might abuse them.

    • Sapper3307 says:

      The Gateway Pendent has a good video of the Lars/LARPERS throwing rocks at cars from a overpass.

      “michael_reinoehl” on Instagram:
      “Every Revolution needs people that are willing and ready to fight. There are so many of us protesters that are just protesting without a clue of where that will lead. That’s just the beginning that’s where the fight starts. If that’s as far as you can take it thank you for your participation but please stand aside and support the ones that are willing to fight. I am 100% ANTIFA all the way! I am willing to fight for my brothers and sisters! Even if some of them are too ignorant to realize what antifa truly stands for. We do not want violence but we will not run from it either! If the police continue to pick on and beat up innocent citizens that are peacefully voicing their objections, it must be met with equal force! We are currently living through a crucial point in Humanities evolution. We truly have an opportunity right now to fix everything. But it will be a fight like no other! It will be a war and like all wars there will be casualties. I was in the army and I hated it. I did not feel like fighting for them would ever be a good cause. Today’s protesters and antifa are my brothers in arms. This is a Cause to fight for This truly is fighting for my country! I have children that need to live in a world run by Common Sense and human decency. And I will do anything to make sure that happens. Now is the time to change the course of humanity. If we fold now just because they show some Force we will be lost for another hundred years. And I don’t think the planet will let us live that long if we don’t straighten shit up. Please be safe strong and United. I love you all❤️💪🙏

    • Gwdusn says:

      You lost me. What does your comment have to do with the subject of taking away state and federal benefits of people who are charged and convicted of felony offenses in the State on Indiana?

      • KoB says:

        Gwdusn; Berliner’s comment is the manifesto of the person that killed the Trump supporter in Portland. What this useful idiot (Michael Reinoehl) probably doesn’t realize is that his life won’t matter in the grand scheme of things and he will be tossed upon the ash heap of footnotes to history. IMO this shows that BLM does mean, BurnLootMurder.

        Maybe Berliner put it here to show what we are up against.

    • PTBH says:


  4. I heard on Fox a little earlier that Trump may visit the perp blake that was shot during a warrant arrest. WTF. If that’s the case, how come he didn’t visit Charles Manson when he was alive. I wonder if he is now going to pander to get votes. Anyone out there hear anything about this?? Was about 45 minutes ago.

  5. Ex;

    How can those birds that you have a pic of tweet without a cell phone which I don’t see. Tweet Tweet twidily deet, rocked in the tree tops all day long.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Oh, well, it’s Mom feeding the last young-un (and trying to get the little snot to go find his on food, too), so their tweets are long and harsh.

      Besides, birds don’t need no stinking cell phones. They sit on telephone wires all the time! They can hack access that way and make calls all the way from Massachusetts to California birds without it costing a cent.

  6. TRS says:

    I heard that the Blake family wants to make peace with the President. Parler, actually. The President has made peace with people, I like peace. Be safe everyone.

  7. 5th/77th FA says:

    Good idea, but a bad plan. And this legislation will go nowhere. There has been absolutely NO progress on “reforming” welfare since the days of the Freedman’s Bureau denying the promise of 40 acres and a mule. The roots of today’s problems stretch back to that. Many a documented case where the former slaves were just hanging out around the office waiting for a handout instead of looking for paying work. When the Carpetbaggers took over the former plantations and started the sharecropper system, then they were forced back to economic bondage…by their supposed liberators. But I digress.

    The whole “extra” unemployment thing for the dempanic is a joke too. Lotsa folks don’t want to go back to work because they are making way yoner more on these programs than they would be at regular pay. Only the threat of cutting off all of the “free money” has forced some folks to report back in. And then you had the “essential workers”, my Sister included, who had to continue to work the entire time that got exactly 0 extra dollars.

    These are not “Government Funded Programs” these are “Taxpayer Funded Programs”! The government is not a producer of money, it is a taker of money. From working people. Stub out your Camel, get off your ass, pick up your shovel, and go to work. Everyone has the same equal opportunity as everyone else…and many of the minority groups have even more opportunity.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      If you recall, 5th/77th, it was Lyndon Baines Johnson who started the whole welfare program back in the 1960s so that he could get votes from them there po’ nword folks. He and a couple of his buddies ran Texas politics for a very long time and yet, until JFK took him as Veep, he couldn’t get the nomination for President.

      And he’s the one who started the welfare program that has done more damage than anything else ever did. Blame what is going on now on him. His grave needs to be spat upon.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Truth for the money shot! Yesum, LBJ was probably the crookedest demonrat of all. His sleazyness is well documented. “…have them “nwords” voting our way for the next 300 years.” And JFK was pretty much told by the DNC that he, JFK, HAD to have LBJ as a running mate, period. And we can’t forget LBJ’s “heroic” war service and his awarding of the Silver Star. /s/ And no one will ever convince me that LBJ was not neck deep in the assassinations of JFK and Bobby. LBJ hated the Kennedys, especially Bobby with a passion. Those of us that came of age during these time frames remember seeing it as it happened and don’t have to depend on watered down Wiki links to get the story.

        Today’s black youth have lost sight of the struggles of their grandparents and that it was, indeed, the demonrats that helped destroy the traditional 2 parent Black Family. And it hasn’t been just “Southern Demonrats.” They had plenty of help from their Yankee counterparts. Lincoln had his hands full of the Copperheads and other demonrats, as you pointed out in the other comment about Tammany Hall in Noo Yawk City. Or the original Chicago Political Machine that was pushing hard to get Douglas instead of Lincoln. And how many of Lincoln’s Generals were demonrats, helping to prolong/lose the war to make sure he was defeated. Sickles, McClellan, Freemont, Butler, among others. And don’t forget his own cabinet members, Seward and Stanton who both along with Noo Yawks Seymore (sp?) thought they could do better.

        I have no problem with any person of any ethnic or gender different from me or the same as me earning their way thru life. I do have a problem with anybody who is trying to destroy us and our way of life.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          This is where I still ask why Jack Ruby went down to the police station in the first place? And why was he toting a gun?

          That will never be answered, any of it. I have my own suspicions, that’s all.

          • 5th/77th FA says:

            Word. And Jack Ruby went to the po po station to finish what Officer Tippets was supposed to have done. Kill Oswald.

            We know, for sure that the truth will not come out in our lifetime or even the lifetime of our children, if ever.

            I will say this on LBJ. When he came to Macon GA during his Campaign in ’64, there was a large Black Republican population there then. Lots of white Repubs too, with the massive numbers of Vets and Rosie Riveters that had supported Ike. Had an uncle and a BiL that were LEOs that were part of the local security detail when he met with many of these Black Leaders and basically promised them moon, stars, and the pie in the sky for their votes. He was passing out his personal copies of the Voting Rights Act AND the Civil Rights Act of ’64/65, both of which were strictly political ploys, along with promises of Federal monies “as needed.”

            On my way to my reward I do want to stop off in hell long enough to shovel a few more coals on that bastard.

          • UpNorth says:

            And why was anyone granted access to that area of the station? The press has no right of access to anywhere in a police station, so why would DPD let anyone in?

          • I was in the Great Lakes Boot Camp on Nov. 22, 1963 when we lost JFK. We Had Rope Yarn Sunday the next day.

        • Jarhead says:

          Your reference to the Copperheads will confuse many; but awaken a few who look up the term on Wikipedia. Having to bite my tongue on much that wants to be written, I will say this. Rioters, looters, burners, etc. will best remain above ground by NEVER trying to push and bully their way anywhere South of Atlanta or into L. A. (Southern Alabama, AKA Lower Alabama).

          It was Biden who said, “You Ain’t Black if You Vote For Trump”. It is Jarhead who says, “You Ain’t A Reb If You Don’t Have At Least A Thousand Rounds of Ammo Stored up”. Truth be known, a more accurate number would be 5,000 minimum. We tend to enjoy hunting and target practice around these parts.

          • 5th/77th FA says:

            My tongue has teeth marks all over it. Hard to squeeze nearly 65 years of research and study into a milblog comment, and this isn’t always the place for it. A number of the good folks here “get it.” It being it is OK to Honor the Soldier but despise the politicians who made them do their bideng(sic..c what I did there?).

            Oddly I don’t frequent WBTS Blogs very much at all, too many Larsi Boi types who got their info from either Wiki or the latest college textbook on “Slavery Was The Only Cause of The War!” Buncha stitch nazis there too.

    • USMC Steve says:

      True dat. People tend to forget that there is no such thing as a government funded program. The government cannot fund anything. We do.

  8. Green Thumb says:

    I wonder if All-Points Logistics has figured out a way to take advantage of this….

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Give them a call, GT, and let us know if you get an answer, 🙂 They’re missing out on some serious cash here.

    A link about BLM and who is associated with them…

  10. Jarhead says:

    5/77….Just out of curiosity, you don’t by any freak chance belong to the Mid-Ga. Gem and Mineral Society in Macon? They meet nine months out of the year at the Museum of Arts & Sciences.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Not a member JH, but do know of them and some of their members are affiliated with other organizations that I am a part of. And one of the very best eating places in Ma-conga is right down the hill from there. You are prolly fairly close by to 2 of my brothers in LA. Semmes and on the river outside of Mobile.

      • Jarhead says:

        Personally knowing a few of them myself, I can guess the ‘Injun” (one hell of a GOOD man) and a few others we both know. It’s a truly fun club for serious rock hounds. As for your Bros, nope as we are in the opposite corner. Just barely up the road from Three Egg, Fl Bro Jonn once posted pictures of on this site. We are not far from Bainbridge at all. If you are in the Macon area, we need to get together some time and reminisce over Little Richard, Ken Shamrock, and who could overlook Jason Aldean? In case you are wondering, as Willy sang, I’m still crazy after all these years. Were we to meet in person I’m 100% POSITIVE a LOT of our conversation could never be printed.
