Some link roundups, and a few of the links featured in each case.

- A judge knocks the latest Bloombergian nonsense off the Washington state ballot. Our own Comrade X had something to do with this. And the billionaire victim disarmers hoisted themselves on their own petard (i.e. their sheer incompetence).
- Georgia cop tasers an 87-year-old grandma who was cutting dandelions. His department defends him, ’cause you know, an old lady with a knife has a “capacity” for attacking a cop, even if she isn’t.
- Another one bites the dust. Shopify not only gun-related retailers, but also any lingering commitment to free speech.

There is more information on a self-defense shooting from a few days ago. Teen fatally shoots mother’s abusive boyfriend, will not be charged.
Specifically, about who trained her in shooting, before he died, and more information about the gun used has come to light.
The children’s late father had taught the girl and her siblings how to shoot and safely handle guns, allowing her to effectively use the single-action Colt .45-caliber revolver that had to be cocked between shots, said District Attorney Ted Bell.
As someone said, “Well done dad!”
“It was absolutely clear that the mom’s life was in jeopardy, as well as potentially the children, and so in that situation we absolutely support the right of somebody to defend themselves and others with deadly force,” [Bell] said. “I commend the 15-year-old for doing a very difficult thing by saving her mom’s and siblings’ lives and showing an amazing amount of maturity.”
The previous posting on this incident can be found at this link.
Self-defense is a human-right, and in North Carolina, it appears to be your legal right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. (Hat tip to Twichy)
I guess they need to beef-up their admittance procedures. (Of course I think they would first have to have some procedures before they could be improved.) ISIS sex slave survivor says she met her captor in Germany.
ISIS was hard on the Yazidi. The Western media pretty much ignored the Yazidi people. (Most spell checkers don’t recognize that name.) It was hard to swing the narrative I guess, given that it was a bunch of Christians being terrorized, abducted and sold into slavery by Muslims.
Ashwaq Haji Hami was only 14 when she was sold in her home country of Iraq for $100 to an Islamic State fighter named Abu Humam.
You would think that would create some movement in the West, but not much of one.
She ran into him in Germany, and he seemed to know quite a bit about her life there.
She told the Associated Press that Humam’s real name was Mohammed Rashid and that after fleeing, she allegedly encountered him in Germany in 2016 and again this February. She reported the incidents to police, but fearing for her safety, she moved back to Iraq in June.
Think about that for minute. She left Germany, and went back to Iraq, where it was safer.
Her family is currently trying to get to Australia “as part of a special program for women abducted by ISIS.”
Germany is reacting to the bad press by saying “she didn’t give us enough information.”
Actually this story is about the impacts on one of Venezuela’s neighbors. Pentagon prepares to dispatch hospital ship to Colombia amid refugee crisis.
As a result of a dire economic and health care situation, rising numbers of Venezuelans are joining an exodus that has set off alarms across Latin America. The United Nations said earlier this week that an estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans had fled the crisis-torn country as of June, mainly to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil.
Those refugees have apparently overwhelmed the health care system of Colombia. And other South American countries. Several hundred thousand refugees have escaped from Venezuela, a large number of them are malnourished.
RZA (of The Wu-Tang Clan) was responsible for the soundtrack for Kill Bill. He didn’t write all the music, (I think he did write and produce 1 song), but he was fan of Kung Fu movies, and so Quentin Tarantino recruited him for his Kung-fu/Samari/Whatever movie.
This song is sort of the quintessential melding of Spaghetti-Western-meets-Eastern-Spiritual-Kung-Fu. Which is crazy, because Gheorghe Zamfir is a Romanian Pan-flute player. (I think that the flute reminds me of the original TV show, Kung-Fu.)
Anyway this is “The Lonely Shepherd” from the Kill Bill Vol. 1 Soundtrack album. The only place I know it is playing is in the scene where Hattori Hanzo (Sonny Chiba) is giving The Bride (Uma Thurman) the sword he has made for her.
This being the UK, there is damn little info in the press. Quadruple stabbing in London park in latest knife attack within city’s ‘murder mile’ .
Four are in hospital. Witnesses (who universally didn’t want to be identified) said that at least one of the 4, appeared to be very seriously injured.
Scotland Yard said six males were arrested and are being held in custody. The four injured are believed to be teenagers.
That is pretty much the sum-total of the facts handed out by authorities.
In the middle of some prevarication and bit of hand-wringing, Police Superintendent Annmarie Cowley‡ had this to say.
It is beyond comprehension.
File this under, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” The area in question is known as London’s “Murder Mile.” Doing the math from there would indicate that another knife attack is hardly beyond comprehension. Or at least it should be for a police department.
‡ I tried to figure out what Scotland Yard means by Superintendent. More than a sergeant. Less than Chief. Yet another example of the British and the Americans separated by a common language.
The Left (or the activist class) seems to be the same in Australia. It’s a 2 minute video, that is worth your time.
