Not Guilty

Last week I wrote a blog about the Kyle Rittenhouse testimony immediately after he finished testifying.  


I was nervous the jury was going to return a verdict before the blog went out the following Wednesday.  As it turns out that was not something I needed to be worried about.


I am writing this blog post on Friday, November 19th at 10:45.  Minutes ago the jury finally reached a verdict, after three plus days of deliberation.  Of the five counts levied against Rittenhouse, the jury found him NOT GUILTY on all five.


Kyle Rittenhouse is a free man.


The MAJ and I discussed the ongoing jury deliberations during the week with deep concern.  


From reading my blog, or having talked to me in person, you all should be aware that both the MAJ and I felt that Kyle Rittenhouse was completely justified in using deadly force against each of the individuals he shot, or shot at.


Evidently the jury agreed with our assessment.  


Though, they sure took their sweet time coming to that conclusion!  (Or perhaps they didn’t.  We will never know at what point the jury realized they were in unanimity when it came to Rittenhouse’s use of force.  It may have happened early on, and they knew that the magnitude of a verdict reached “too soon” might be problematic.  Or, perhaps, they analyzed everything on a granular level… ultimately coming to the correct conclusion.)


Regardless, it was a nail biter.


When I got the alert on my phone that the jury had reached a verdict, I tuned into my court watcher app and saw the verdict was already being read.  Count one had already been stated and I had no idea what it was.  I simply saw Rittenhouse standing at the defense table with a stoic look on his face.  Then came count two:  not guilty; count three:  not guilty; count four:  not guilty; count five:  not guilty.  That is when Rittenhouse literally bowled over sobbing.  I knew at that moment he had been completely exonerated.  


This was confirmed by the many notifications that immediately started popping up on my screen showing he was acquitted of all charges.


This trial has stood for many things, and for that, there has been a massive vested interest on the part of the Collectivists for Rittenhouse to go down.  Like the victory in Virginia, the “almost” victory in New Jersey, the trouncing of the New Jersey Senate leader, the collapsing confidence in the Biden Administration, and the wave of retirements among House and Senate Democratic Congressmen… the Rittenhouse verdict is another nail in the coffin.  


The biggest winner:  Well, clearly, Rittenhouse himself, and to a very, very limited extent the American judicial system.


The two biggest losers:  The Assistant District Attorney… and the media.


The media had to hold water for the Administration.  During the election, the Democrats praised the rioters.  (Vice President Harris set up a bail fund for those who were arrested.)  Cities burned and people died.  The Democrats had their own Brownshirts essentially recreating Kristallnacht… and we were all told this was completely acceptable.  To disagree meant you were a racist!


Then Rittenhouse did the unthinkable:  He defended himself against the rioters with:  Gasp… an AR-15!!!  With a 20-round magazine!!!  Loaded with FULL METAL JACKET BULLETS!!! (Good Lord… don’t get me started!)


(If you have arrived here from our newsletter, continue reading here…)


To the Collectivists, this could not stand!  First off, a few of their own comrades had fallen to this kid, this “White / Republican / Militia / Racist / Christian / QAnon nut job”.


At least that is what they called him… needed him to be.  Like the Covington kid, the truth was irrelevant.  They needed a villain, and they were going to control his origin story to create their narrative.  


The legacy media (the propaganda division of the Democratic Party) ran with it.  They libeled Rittenhouse without any evidence to support their conclusions.  Not that that matters, this is not an empirical study!  It is a normative one.  They couldn’t care less what “is”, they only cared what “it should be”.  


Worse… he used a God Damn AR-15, people!!!!


No one NEEDS an AR-15!


The prosecutor wanted to know why Rittenhouse didn’t just have a pistol!


“I could not legally have a pistol.  I could only legally have a rifle for my protection.”


(Legal tip:  Don’t ask a question of a witness unless you know the answer.  And for God’s sake… know the law if you are a prosecutor!  Better to not ask the question than to be schooled on firearms jurisprudence by an 18-year-old boy!)


The Collectivists needed to have Rittenhouse found guilty to show their support for their Brownshirts.


The anti-gun crowd needed Rittenhouse to be guilty because of his choice of weapon.


The jury apparently would have none of that.


Will this cause the Mandarines to pivot?  Will they look at the crumbling edifice before them and think perhaps their agenda is not working out as planned?


Doubtful.  Insanity is the act of doing the same thing that hasn’t worked repeatedly, hoping for a different result.  Our betters in office… all offices, federal, state, and local… are filled with the certifiably insane.


Fortunately, their claws could not permanently sink into Kyle.

    What are your thoughts about the situation in GA? I think I know your answer but was wondering your thoughts.

      I think it is just as Correct & Righteous as the verdict was for Kyle; minus the camera man, but that is for a latter discussion.

    What can be said about him going there with a gun? Could the violence have been avoided if he had not gone there with a gun? The State should have taken precautions to contain the protesters should things get out of control.

    I agree that once he was faced with a threat of deadly violence he was justified in his actions. But, would those threats have been made had he not had a gun? The outcome, unfortunately, probably would not have been the same if this had happened in California.

      Let’s not forget Kyle was not the only one there with a gun, and was actually less a hazard than the others there with guns because he was actually open carrying it, as logic & the Constitution prescribes.

      Let us not forget that he was not the only one there with a gun, and that he was actually less a hazard than the others that were there with guns too since he was open carrying it, as logic & the Constitution prescribes; and as you mentioned: another thing that California is violating.

    I’m looking forward to the defamation lawsuits. At what point will the msm realize being the PR debt for the leftists is too costly? (Hopefully not before they are bankrupted…)

    November 19th was a small but, much needed victory. A year from now I hope we will be celebrating another one in Congrress.

    Anyone can see Kyle was chasing the victims….. just by running the video backwards.

    Spot on Steven! and it is happening that more and more of our society is coming to the same conclusion. The last 10 or 20 years have been a huge wake up call for America. If we learn the valuable lessons (existing laws actually work….if we enforce them) while at the same time raising our collective awareness of important issues, then we all will come out of this stronger as a nation! It is a painful time, but God bless America!

    I was concerned that the attempted intimidation of the jury might lead to a “CYA” verdict. I’m so glad that didn’t happen. Kudos to the jurors, who called it as they saw it, and didn’t buckle under the pressure that I’m quite sure they must’ve felt.

    I hope I am wrong here when I believe that this boy is free not because he was absolutely innocent, but because Soros didn’t pay enough those in charge to put him away. So called Democrats are very dangerous group of people determined to continue with their agenda that started 1933 overseas.

    Excellent as always! Thank you!
    I have friends that moved to Idaho…Boise/Meridian & also Sandpoint. I loved what they did… when they found out Antifa/BLM was coming to Coeur d’Alene & Boise. The people came together & joined forces to protect their town, family, friends, stores, etc… with all their big guns…. men, women, boys, girls, young and old! They texted me how it went and sent me videos… maybe you all saw it. But I feel that it’s good wisdom is to never go alone. That is dangerous. Even Jesus said when speaking about preaching the Gospel said to go in 2’s. I believe its just good wisdom to connect with legal, civilized, organized, wise, like-minded people that know the law and how to go about it, like they did in Idaho, and Antifa didn’t even THINK about causing trouble! They kept walking and left their towns. What a great victory!
    THANK GOD Kyle was safe! What an amazing kid he is. I think it would be amazing if he would become good friends with Nick Sandman. He would be a great support for Kyle, but I’m sure they would become good support for one another.
    God bless you! Thank you for all your great wisdom!
