Range report on the Rittenhouse Rye:   Quite good, makes a nice spicey old fashioned.

Rittenhouse is not on my "straight sippin' whiskey" list, but it's very good in Old-fashioneds and Sazeracs. The first time I had it was in a Sazerac in a speakeasy.

Idaho State Liquor shows a bunch available locally. At 25 bucks a bottle, I should go get a bottle to support the team.  =D

It's interesting watching all the commie governors and commie big city mayors from states that are not Wisconsin all coming out and screaming that we need to do something about this verdict. A verdict in a legal trial, by a jury that obviously took this seriously enough to deliberate for three days, and knowing that it could have been easier to just ignore the evidence and find him guilty to appease the mob and protect their own lives.

I agree, this has been bothering me today too.

For all those governors, mayors, representatives, etc that are making comments saying this is a "miscarriage of justice", etc; I'd really like to know exactly what about this trial or the justice system of having trials by peers they think constitutes a "miscarriage of justice".

This article is not surprising on multiple levels.  "Woke", "Liberal", "Female", "PoC", self-righteous, hypocrite, etc.  :facepalm:

I wonder how much of the doctrinaire Left's outrage is the fact that we now have a very high-profile example of someone defending themselves with an AR-15. And they helped make it famous.



Even if the hard Left, and gun control true believers will never admit it was self-defense, millions of people will never again believe that ARs are nothing but mass murder machines or LARPer toys.

As much as he wants to become a nurse, I think he should really think long and hard about the military.  Or, if wokeness wasn’t infesting the military I’d suggest that.  He’d make one heck of an NCO, especially in a combat role. 

And as wise as laying low would normally be, it might behoove him to take advantage of the money making opportunities available right now.  A few years from now the interest won’t be nearly as much.  That $2mil bail fund is unlikely to wind up in his hands, so the speaking circuit, paid interviews, book/movie deals (as a consultant if not subject), etc could be very lucrative.

Would you trust the current military leadership to leave him alone? 

He will figure something out.  There are people out there who would give him a job.  He may have more trouble than most in finding those opportunities.  Give it 6 months or a year and see how much publicity still follows him.

Jury acquits Gifford man who claimed self-defense after girlfriend killed by sheriff's SWAT team in 2017 raid
https://news.yahoo.com/jury-acquits-gifford-man-claimed-195415308.html

A separate case, but I saw someone point this one out as another case where a man was acquitted.  Only this man was black and he actually shot at police.  So self defense isn't just a white thing. 

It does look like he was tagged for a felon in possession charge.

This kid should make enough from defamation lawsuits over the next couple of years that his entire extended family will live like Midas. Nick Sandman has already reached out to him, and the lawyer that first got the OSHA rule stopped is offering to go after Biden for him. He’ll never have a normal life, might as well have a comfortable one.

Considering he just went through a criminal case, I don't know if the media has the same liability with this case versus Sandman.  With Sandman, the media fabricated the whole story out of thin air and essentially attacked and publicized a 16 year old minor who did nothing wrong (and they knew it).  I think that is why Sandman is getting settlements as his case won't be so easy to fight.  I don't know if Kyle will get the same result as his case was very public. 

Zimmerman sued NBC (I think) who edited the 911 recording to make him look racist and guilty.  His lawsuit got tossed, but I don't remember if there was some reason that happened.

Yeah, as despicable as the media has been with Rittenhouse I don’t think he’ll get anywhere with suing the media.  Maybe the ones that have kept pushing the lies even after the evidence was reported in court.  But, e.g. the Young Turks walked back their BS during the trial.  They’re probably pretty safe from Kyle, unfortunately. 

Kyles best bet will be paid speeches and interviews and such.  If were his lawyer I’d advise him not to count on getting settlements, and to make use of such opportunities while his 15 minutes last.

Seen at the protest graffiti. “All cops are Kyles.” Guys, please think this over. You had a much better chance of survival when they were just bastards. The murder death kill stats are about to be lit.

And in THIS instance, the cops were actually raiding his place with a WARRANT! I still don't understand...

Plenty of links for people to find and look at, but it appears "peaceful protests" are spreading, most in the usual places. At this point, in places like Portland and Oakland, I'm almost gleeful to see them burn their own city down. It seems to be what they want.

From Oakland:

Also, I've read at least a half dozen articles now where this was an "unfair" trial because the defendant was white and the jury was predominately white. Why do I never hear about "unfairness" when it's a POC defendant and the jury is predominately POC? I certainly hear complaints when the defendant is POC and the jury is predominately white, yet for Kyle, they want a POC jury for "fairness".

Should have been a jury of wise Latinas, obviously.

Oh, I mean Latinxs. Latinxes? Latinxi? Maybe it's Latinxen, like "oxen."

The problem with suing the media is they can claim, with enough plausibility to fend off a suit, that they were just reporting on what the prosecutors were saying.  Sandmann won all his settlements largely because there wasn’t any crime, let alone criminal charges or trial, so they didn’t get that cloak to cover themselves from liability.  The prosecution has nearly impenetrable immunity from liability when acting officially. 

Where Kyle might have a case worth pursuing will be with those media outlets that continue to make blatant false claims even now that the trial is over and he was acquitted. 

While Biden’s comments post verdict were vile, suing him successfully will be very difficult.  By now Kyle a “public figure” which means proving actual malice to win a lawsuit.  All Biden has to say is that he disagrees with the legality of what Kyle did, but [NPR voice] clearly [/NPR voice] wasn’t malicious in nature.  How many courts will smack Biden with a clue-x-4 over that?

Here's what CNN has to say about "the two men killed and the 'sole survivor' ". Rosenbaum was just an innocent guy in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the one line about his multiple instances of child molestation were written as "sexual conduct".

Oh, and they have this right under the above article:

Many MSM outlets especially MSNBC are still running with many of the same proven false narratives they were before the trial. They think they're immune from any consequences and are still trying to inflame riots and a full on race war. Time to let them know just how wrong they are.
