I hope they appeal. No agent of the state should ever help itself to your home without due process…or arrest you for refusing to consent to the intrusion.

UH-OH: ‘American Sniper’ Effect: Rival Benghazi Movies Aim to Capitalize on War-Film Trend.

I must confess I find it amusing to see knee-jerk commenters around the web go into fits at the mere mention of this movie.  Not that it’s a movie made to please neo-conservatives, (it’s a Warner Bros. release, for crying out loud).  Haven’t seen it yet, anyway.  But my general take on Hollywood war movies past and present is that they are more about sacrifice than about glorifying war.

At any rate, don’t expect these Benghazi movies to put Hillary or Obama on the spot, either.  But at least they’ll keep the tragic events in the popular mind for a time to come, maybe into 2016.

Rachel Maddow, Call Your Office: After ISIS execution, angry King Abdullah quotes Clint Eastwood to U.S. lawmakers.

So the brilliant, old man who was dismissed as a virtual Alzheimer’s patient for daring to compare POTUS to an empty chair is not only the hot director of the moment, but an example of strength to be imitated by a non-radical Muslim leader. Funny how that happens…

I’m sorry to say it, but this is starting to smell of a World War.  If only the president had left all those troops in Iraq instead of removing them to…why did he do that, again?  I guess he needed them so that he could keep expanding our military presence in Africa and Afghanistan.

Symbolism should be limited to novels, films, poetry and the like.  Better to keep it out of military decisions…

Peak Left: France’s 75% ‘supertax’ quietly dies with few mourners: “The fate of the supertax mirrored the wider trajectory of the troubled Socialist presidency, which was elected in a surge of left-wing enthusiasm but has been forced to temper its initial approach in a desperate bid to escape the country’s economic quagmire.”

Toxic Rhetoric, Toxic Results: NYPD Shooting Suspect Referenced Garner, Brown Cases.

What a deplorable, unnecessary tragedy.   I just realized I didn’t blog much about the Garner death grand jury aftermath or the Ferguson one, though I did discuss it at length on Facebook (my time is too limited these days, it was one or the other).  My feeling is that though no one has to submit to the police in every circumstance, at the same time one can’t resist arrest without consequence in any circumstance.  Cops don’t have a duty to acquiesce if you resist, though excessive violence can’t ever be justified. But the state is force.  And cops are agents of the state (besides being human beings).  So you resist at your own risk.  If we want cops to have less opportunities to arrest us, we need to reduce state power in many areas, including decriminalization of many victimless offenses.  Asking cops to go out to their jobs – which often involve applying state force – and then expect them to walk on eggshells while performing their duties is asking too much.  There are cops there who amount to thugs with badges, sure, but most of them are just good people trying to do a job for which they have been trained.  And the training involves, again, the use of force.

Now, that’s one issue.  The other issue here is that race hustlers and radical activists for over a month now have taken the Garner and Brown deaths and turned them into battle cries against a supposedly racist society (which elected a black president to office, twice) and capitalism in general (how does boycotting Black Friday help anything?  Beats me.  I figured city governments could use the sales taxes to train police or buy wearable video cameras, but what do I know?).  And now that toxic rhetoric, in the immortal words of uber race hustler and Obama mentor Reverend Wright, has come home to roost.
