We can all breathe a little easier today because Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts. This verdict means that Kyle Rittenhouse is a free man. He cannot be charged again. The jury deliberated for about 30 hours. That is actually a good thing, in retrospect, because it reduces the “rush to judgment” criticisms. I would not expect much violence in Kenosha this weekend for a couple of reasons. One being that the National Guard is on standby and more importantly, the weather is a factor. It will get up to around 50 tomorrow and Sunday, but when the sun goes down the temperature drops rapidly. Rioters definitely prefer warmer weather.
The MSM absolutely embarrassed itself by deliberately misrepresenting the facts in this case. Kyle Rittenhouse is white, all of the people he encountered were white, and he has no known connection to white supremacists. The MSM was not only wrong about this, but they were also absurdly wrong.
There are already attorneys lining up to represent Kyle Rittenhouse regarding some very serious lawsuits. This will be similar to what happened to Nicholas Sandmann. Sandmann sued the MSM for defamation and appears to have collected millions. That pales in comparison to the damage done to Kyle Rittenhouse. A lot of people would be wise to start lawyering up, but that horse has already left the barn.
This is also a devastating blow to a justice system that appears to be motivated more by political considerations rather than facts. The prosecutor was desperate to gain a conviction and lacking the facts he resorted to the ridiculous and including what appears to be deliberate misrepresentation of material facts. I honestly believe if he had been convicted, it would have overturned on appeal, if not overturned immediately by the judge.
The real problem is that people we should be able to trust have proven themselves completely untrustworthy. That includes people in the MSM including MSNBC, NBC, and CNN. Even if you were one of those people who wanted Kyle Rittenhouse to be prosecuted, you have to be concerned over how much they got wrong.
That includes the establishment in the Democratic Party. The ridiculous assertion by Joe Biden and people like the Attorney General of the United States, Merrick Garland, that white supremacists are the greatest threat to us, other than global climate change, evaporated with that not guilty verdict. The jury, who listened to the facts was obviously not impressed. People are figuring this out regarding almost every democratic talking points. That includes climate change, criminal justice reform, tax and spend, woke politics, critical race theory, reparations, mask mandates, vaccine mandates and even racist bridges. Credibility, once lost, is extremely difficult to get it back. This was a slap in the face to the MSM and to the entire Democratic agenda. We should not overlook that.
Similar things are playing out all over the country and the world. Austria tried to lock down everyone who is unvaccinated, forgetting that at least some of those people were police officers. The police are not only unwilling to enforce this nonsense, but they are also joining the protests.
Someone leaked that memo from the Attorney General regarding targeting parents. Clearly there are a lot of people in the DOJ and the FBI who are fighting back against the obvious politicization of justice. There are numerous leaks from White House staffers regarding Kamala Harris. “Let’s Go Brandon” is going viral. People are showing up in droves at college and professional football games. They are crammed together, not wearing masks yet there have been no reports of super spreader events. It is impossible to ignore the obvious hypocrisy demonstrated by high ranking Democrats who wear ludicrous masks whenever they see a camera only to get caught frolicking in social events with no masks in sight.
The silent majority is very real and is silent no more. Those who ignore the reality of this do so at their own peril. In the meantime, as I predicted previously, Kyle Rittenhouse may just become a legend. He was surprisingly articulate when cross examined. He is about to be rich, very rich. He has just been given a voice that may soon become very loud. They tried and failed to destroy him. Don’t be surprised if he is a major factor in a nationwide movement to destroy them.
This may happen sooner than you can imagine. CNN is already talking about shredding staff and returning to a legitimate news organization. The only way that can happen is if noticeably big and prominent names are axed. They used a myth, to attack a man. That failed and the result may be a legend that will haunt them for a long time.
