Savor this victory, for rarely is one so sweet or so well-earned.

Moments ago, the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse case announced its verdict: Not guilty on all counts.

The Globalist American Empire brought all its power to bear to obliterate Kyle Rittenhouse for the “crime” of protecting himself from a pedophile rapist, a violent psychopath, and an Antifa felon. They wanted to leave a smoldering crater where there was once a kind-hearted teenager, as a warning to any other do-gooders who might think about protecting their communities or themselves. What if other upstanding, moral, law-abiding Americans saw Rittenhouse as a model? What if they too began using legal self-defense against the freakshows and pedophiles and lumpenprole criminals who people the Antifa “movement” and act as the GAE’s ideological shock troops?

They know, deep down, that Rittenhouse was a higher tier of person than the BLM creatures he slew, or the politicians who condemned him. He had to be destroyed.

But this time, the GAE failed.

Everyone in America should enjoy and celebrate Rittenhouse’s vindication. But justifiable celebration must not crowd out necessary self-reflection. There are bitter lessons in the Rittenhouse case.

The first, and most important, is that this verdict does not vindicate the American justice system, or represent a turning point. In fact, the very fact that this outcome counts as a “victory” shows how bad things have become.

Prosecutor Thomas Binger, who sported multiple Star Wars-theme lapel pins during the trial, acted as a near-caricature of a soyfaced Reddit prosecutor, desperately trying to score “points” against Rittenhouse with flimsy character attacks. During his cross-examination of Rittenhouse, Binger suggested Rittenhouse might be guilty because:

  • He had played Call of Duty, America’s most popular video game franchise

  • He ran to put out a burning fire

  • He participated in a Kenosha cadet firefighter program, so he was “lying” when he said he was part of the fire department.

  • He didn’t immediately provide first aid after shooting people, while fleeing for his life

  • For exercising his right to remain silent after being arrested.

At other points in the trial, Rittenhouse “victim” Gaige Grosskreutz admitted he was pointing a gun at Rittenhouse (accidentally!) when he was shot, and admitted lying to police about it. During testimony from Daily Caller reporter Richie McGinniss, prosecutors tried to twist his testimony to say that convicted child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum was “falling” toward Rittenhouse, instead of “lunging.”

The prosecution’s conduct was so shoddy and so underhanded that at one point Judge Bruce Schroeder literally shouted them down in the courtroom.

In short, this case was a sham from the beginning. There was no ambiguity, no doubt about the just outcome. This case should never have been brought. Yet it was anyway, for political reasons. Every day that the sham continued, the press did its part to lie to the public (and, potentially, the jury, which was not sequestered for the trial).

At the Washington Post, “reporters” ignored egregious misconduct by prosecutors, to instead vilify the judge who held them in check.

Kyle Rittenhouse came perilously close to being convicted of murder. The fact he escaped does nothing to undo the shame that this happened at all, and it does nothing to undo the chilling effect on the American people.

This verdict could easily be the “last gasp” of a real justice system in America. Judge Bruce Schroeder, who has done so much to shut down the underhanded and malicious tactics of the prosecution, is more than seventy years old. The pool of Americans with his character and skill is declining by the day. In the years to come, thousands of millennials, people who take to soy like a fish takes to water, will occupy the nation’s benches. And if one of them was overseeing the trial, the outcome could easily have been very different.

Everything about the Rittenhouse prosecution represents the decline of America. In a functioning civilization, Rittenhouse would never have had to defend himself at all, because leaders would not have allowed an entire city to collapse into looting and mayhem. At the first sign of trouble, they would have sent the police out with a clear mandate to keep the streets clear and orderly by any means necessary. Would-be looters would have received the instant justice they deserved, and businesses would be protected. But America increasingly isn’t a functioning civilization, so leaders cowered, told police to stand down, and abandoned law-abiding citizens to the mob.

In a functioning civilization, even after the shooting, Rittenhouse would never have been charged. All three shootings were caught on video for the entire world to see. Every video made it obvious that Rittenhouse was defending himself. Revolverwrote about it literally the very next day.

FLASHBACK: Kyle Rittenhouse Did Nothing Wrong: All Available Evidence So Far Points to Clear-Cut Case of Self-Defense

Yet despite Rittenhouse’s obvious innocence, most of the conservative movement spent the last year and even the last week in abject cowardice, refusing to defend him.

The NRA babbles endlessly about the right to self-defense, yet in the single most high-profile case of such self-defense in a decade, they were silent. National Review may have defended Rittenhouse during the trial, but a year ago, instead of praising Rittenhouse’s bravery, they moaned that he “should not have put himself into the middle of Kenosha’s civil unrest” and complained that he violated a curfew (oh no!).

Even the non-Tucker Carlson wing of Fox News, as of late, has finally jumped on the pro-Rittenhouse bandwagon.

Ted Cruz enjoys posting anti-Big Bird memes, but he’s never posted a single thing supporting the Kenosha Kid. Neither have Marco Rubio, or Rand Paul, or Mike Lee. In fact, as far as Revolver could find, there aren’t any Republican senators who have expressly spoken in support of Rittenhouse. Instead, they have stayed silent, or triangulated by simply calling the whole thing “a tragedy,” as Ron Johnson did.

In fact, it’s easier to rattle off the short list of conservatives who did rally behind Rittenhouse. Tucker Carlson, to his eternal credit, said that Kyle “maintain[ed] order when no one else would.”

Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona defended Kyle’s innocence from the very beginning.

Matt Gaetz spoke up for Rittenhouse as well.

But tellingly, the strongest statements aren’t from elected Republicans, but instead mere candidates, like J.D. Vance, Blake Masters, and Joe Kent.

If Rittenhouse’s acquittal is to be a true turning point in American history, then the reactions of Vance, Masters, and Kent must be the default response of the entire GOP. Republicans must realize that the system can’t be trusted, that prosecutors can and will bring trumped-up, political charges solely to humiliate and terrorize their enemies. 

The passion of Kyle Rittenhouse is only the beginning of what is to come. This stumbling, dishonest, incompetent, malicious abortion of a prosecution was the product of the Kenosha County district attorney’s office trying to execute the mandate of the Globalist American Empire.

Soon, a whole raft of defendants will face bogus, politically-motivated charges for their involvement in January 6. They won’t benefit from a middle-American jury pool or middle-American judges. They won’t be facing a handful of hack attorneys, but instead the full force of the federal government, with an unlimited budget and thousands of lawyers to draw upon.

If Republicans refuse to call the 1/6 Inquisition what it is, a political purge of regime enemies, then they will be submitting to the new reality the attack on Kyle Rittenhouse helped create. And if they refuse to launch counterattacks when they have the ability to do so, they will simply be marking time until the next Kyle Rittenhouse is targeted for destruction. The Obama administration sent the DOJ on fishing expeditions against police departments that shot too many criminals. Republicans should launch investigations against the prosecutors responsible for these sham persecutions.

Because make no mistake, more sham prosecutions will come.

Nevertheless, Americans should still savor this victory. They should take delight in the shrieks of agony from the hateful creatures of Twitter and Washington, D.C., who can neither understand nor comprehend a hero like Kyle Rittenhouse. And a hero is exactly what Kyle is. Normal people don’t run out into a braying Antifa mob to protect homes and businesses. Normal people, charged with murder, don’t take the stand in their own defense; the attorneys will all say it’s too risky.

But Kyle Rittenhouse did go out to face the mob. And he did take the stand in his defense. Why? Because it’s what a hero would do. A smart person avoids trouble and saves his own skin. A hero races into the mouth of danger, oblivious to harm. A hero does what is right, not what is easy.

All hail Kyle Rittenhouse, Champion of Antioch, Savior of Kenosha, Slayer of Pedophiles! All hail the conquering hero!

Thank God for this judge and jury!

Since there are already rumors of retribution against Kyle and his mom coming from the left, I suggest that they move to a solid red state where they would not only be left alone, but the locals would protect them if need be.

Actually, all politicians should STFU when a case is pending. Don’t fault Republicans for not speaking up for Kyle. The fault is with any politicians who said anything at all.

Who is this clown in “americasvoice” in the video? “take on woke capital”. That’s a coward’s cop-out, fleeing to the Left’s attack on “capitalism” instead of looking at WHICH individuals control the media. Which individuals control Hollywood. Which individuals control the Israel Lobby. Which individuals are the biggest donors to the Democrats.

No, just blame “capital”. That’s like blaming “government” for Biden – which actually would make more sense, since government naturally attracts leftists.

“Under Wisconsin law you’re not allowed to run around and point your gun at people.”
– Thomas Binger (during closing arguments in Rittenhouse case)

Binger then proceeded to point an AR-15 at jurors in the case….

Binger needs to be arrested and face prosecution.

Predictably so, the Brandon administration has weighed in on the verdict and called for “peaceful protests” (which is dog whistle for burn Kenosha to the ground tonight).

How is this any different than Trump calling for peaceful protest to vote outcome, other than of course, location ?

Don’t know why anyone would be surprised at the NRA’s silence, they are a gun control organization that only pays lip service to the right to keep and bear arms. Here from the “Horse’s mouth:” “The NRA supported The National Firearms Act of 1934 which taxes and requires registration of such firearms as machine guns, sawed-off rifles and sawed-off shotguns. … NRA support of Federal gun legislation did not stop with the earlier Dodd bills. It currently backs several Senate and House bills which, through amendment, would put new teeth into the National and Federal Firearms Acts.” —American Rifleman, March 1968, P. 22

So a 17 year old boy fought the Antifa thugs, while better, trained men sat at home with their arms. There were No combat Vets in the area? No trained retired LE? Obviously the local Gov Polezi couldn’t be bothered either.

Kyle is one of many across America who WILL defend themselves…. and their families, neighbors, churches, businesses, and the Constitution… against the lawless who want the fall of our way of life. America is the home of the brave… But we will only win by getting and staying aware, fit, armed. and trained… as is our right… and VOTING! Even in the face of corrupt elections… and corrupt lying media… and corrupted Justice system… weaponized DOJ, FBI, IRS, CDC, and the rest. If we don’t VOTE THEM OUT we are lost.
APATHY and COWARDICE will allow the minority morons who want ANARCHY in this, the greatest country ever on earth! They would see the law of the jungle prevail.
I am encouraged by the verdict, but We The People will see more attempts to kill the Lady of Liberty… unless we defend her… as Kyle did.
VOTE THEM OUT IN 2022! GoDT2024!

Not a “great moment”; just another very sad moment illustrating how the majority of citizens, both left and right politically, are so easily fooled by fake events orchestrated by an evil, out of control government. They are laughing at you.
