First the militant Marxists burned American flags. The elected Democrat leadership did nothing.
Then the militant Marxists burned police cars. The elected Democrat leadership still did nothing.
Now the militant Marxists have and are still attempting to burn down a federal courthouse. The elected Democrat leadership still did nothing.
The latest from the militant Marxists is to burn books. Specifically, copies of the Holy Bible. Predictably, the elected Democrat leadership still does nothing.
Portland’s Mayor Wheeler, Seattle’s Mayor Durkin, Washington’s Governor Inslee, Oregon’s Governor Brown, House Speaker Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Schumer – Democrats all, have yet to speak even in the slightest against this violence.
I have just two painfully simple questions;
What does any of this have to do with George Floyd?
What’s next… people?
I reported last night that some people were burning Bibles at the antifa/BLM protest in Portland. Here is video: pic.twitter.com/K5WK5qNYlA
Poor Gabriel Agard-Berryhill. I almost feel sorry for the little bastard.
The 18-year-old Portlander was just nabbed by the US Marshals Service (USMS) for slinging an IED at the federal courthouse in Oregon’s largest city. In the video below, Agard-Berryhill can be seen literally jumping for joy after the explosion at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse.
But like I said, I almost feel sorry for him. But not quite enough knowing that he could have killed or wounded federal law enforcement officials due to his shenanigans. No way in hell do I fell sorry for him for that.
Nor do I feel sorry for him knowing that if convicted, he faces a minimum of a mandatory five-year prison stretch (maximum of 20). Face it, by the time the lifers get done with his ass (literally), his farts will sound like the winds blowing through the Carlsbad Caverns. Nope. No pity from me over that.
The reason why I almost feel bad for this little shit is because of the actions of his own beloved grandmother.
Yep. Due to Grammie’s glowing online review of the body armor she purchased for this piss ant, that was the final clue the USMS and the ATF needed to snag him up.
U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that Gabriel Agard-Berryhill, 18, has been charged by criminal complaint with using fire to maliciously damage the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in downtown Portland on July 28, 2020.
“No legitimate protest message is advanced by throwing a large explosive device against a government building. Mr. Agard-Berryhill’s actions could have gravely injured law enforcement officers positioned near the courthouse, other protesters standing nearby, or himself,” said U.S. Attorney Williams. “I applaud the ATF agents and U.S. Marshals Service deputies who worked quickly to identify Mr. Agard-Berryhill before he had an opportunity to hurt others.”
ATF investigators reviewed social media posts from the night of the explosion and located videos of the incendiary object being thrown. The individual depicted throwing the object, later identified to be Agard-Berryhill, was a young, Caucasian male wearing a green colored vest, camouflage pants, and a mask. Investigators observed the person in other protest-related videos posted online wearing the same vest and attempting to hold a shield in front of a naked woman.
Investigators also found a post on Twitter depicting a product review for the vest. The review included a photo of a person wearing the vest who matched the description of the person seen throwing the explosive device. The review states “I got this [vest] for my grandson who’s a protestor [sic] downtown, he uses it every night and says its [sic] does the job.” Investigators later found the same photo on a Facebook page and, using law enforcement databases, were able to positively identify Agard-Berryhill.
In another interesting note, when taken into custody, Agard-Berryhill really should have kept his mouth shut. Instead, this entitled brat spun quite the tale for the investigators… all on the record.
Agard-Berryhill told federal officers that an unknown man in a ski mask handed him what he thought was a spinner-type firework that would rotate with varied colors when lit.
Agard-Berryhill said he was going to light it and throw it in the area of Southwest Third Avenue, but others told him that some people in the crowd have post-traumatic stress from tear gas launched by federal officers and directed him instead to throw it over the fence toward the courthouse.
He admitted he lit the device, described as the size of a piece of chalk, and threw it over the fence, according to Amanda Johnson, an agent with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Agard-Berryhill said he was shocked to hear the “concussive” sound that it produced and it scared him, Johnson wrote in the affidavit. He told federal officers he didn’t intend to hurt anyone.
As seen in the photo below, the review was submitted by “grammaf”.
On a happier note, Gramma F could find some solace in the knowledge that if found guilty, her little angel is sure to either make the boxing team or the dance team.
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were reportedly seized from rioters in both Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, according to authorities.
Seattle and Portland have been the scene of riots in recent months following the death of George Floyd. In Seattle, an autonomous zone – first dubbed the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” and later renamed the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” – was set up for weeks in June.
Portland has seen consistent violence from protesters as federal officers try to protect the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse.
Seattle Police Department Chief Carmen Best announced Thursday that a recent search warrant found multiple weapons, including an improvised explosive, according to Q13’s Brandi Kruse. The warrant was for an impounded van taken at Saturday’s riot.
Other weapons reportedly found included bear spray, tasers and improvised spike strips, according to Best. The items were reportedly being given to people in the crowd.

There was a simpler time in America when a “shooting gallery” was a place you went to at the county fair to win a Kewpie Doll for your best girl.
Well, these aren’t simpler times. This is 2020 America where Democrat politicians have demonized everything that’s good and decent.
As the New York Post is reporting, Manhattan’s shooting gallery is right around 40th St and Broadway. Sadly, it appears as if New York’s Finest is looking the other way as junkies are shooting up in broad daylight.
In all honesty, I don’t know if I could really blame the NYPD for looking the other way. I get the very real impression that the current resident of Gracie Mansion is itching for a reason… any reason… to toss even more cops off the police force.
Noted by New York Post reporters Julie Coleman and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon;
It’s the Great Black Tar Way.
A cluster of junkies has turned Broadway into a shooting gallery, injecting drugs unhampered in broad daylight and then shuffling around in a zonked-out stupor, seemingly oblivious to the Midtown bustle around them, The Post has learned.
If that wasn’t enough, the addicts are peppering the area with used syringes, turning individual planters on 40th Street and Broadway into mini needle parks.
“They’ve taken over the tables, blatantly using needles and shooting up heroin all day long,” said a local worker who asked that he only be identified as James. “There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
He called his own 311 calls “futile exercises.”
The Post spotted several of the spent needles dumped at the scene — and even caught one of the vagrants shooting up out in the open on Tuesday afternoon, with no one stepping in or saying a word.
In a single headline, “blacks” is capitalized, but “whites” is left small case. Interestingly enough, the hundreds of black Marxists are referred to as “activists”, while a handful of white counter-protesters were labeled as “a white militia group.”
Careful, AP and TBT. Your virtue signaling is showing.
But on to headier matters, both news organizations are noting that something called the NFAC (No F*cking Around Coalition), a mostly black Marxist militant group, has been holding a mass rally in Louisville, Kentucky.
Sadly for them, there has been some f*cking around amongst the NFAC faithful.
As reported by the AP and the TBT;
Earlier in the day, three people were accidentally shot at a park where Black activists had gathered, police said. The victims, all of whom were members of the militia group, were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
“This is a tragic situation that could have been much worse,” Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert Schroeder said in a news release. “I encourage anyone choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights to do so responsibly.”
There are a few questions I’d like to raise.
First of all, these NFAC clowns are all wearing the same solid black utility uniform, they all have black combat boots, all have on either a black baseball cap or black boonie cover, nearly all are wearing black web gear (body armor, backpacks, magazine pouches, LBE, etc.), and from the looks of it, there sure seems to be an awful lot of brand new ARs, AKs, and shotguns.
I find it fairly hard to believe that hundreds of people will all show-up wearing the same gear and toting pristine long guns all at the same time.
Just my personal opinion, but someone just dropped millions on this lil’ soiree. Hmmm… I wonder who?
Secondly, I’d like to think the LPD has in custody the weapons in question. Would it really be all that hard to track the serial number on the FBI background check to see who paid for those weapons? No, it’s not.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the… you know… you know the thing.” – Joseph R. Biden, Democrat candidate for the presidency of the United States.
When it comes to Joe Biden, only he can effortlessly segue into some inane, creepy, and blatantly weird shit at the drop of a hat.
Now I understand that in the course of human history, CPR is a relatively new thing, but mouth-to-nostril? That’s a new one on me.
As noted by the good folks over at Breitbart.com, Creepy Joe was virtually interviewed by the uber-liberal SEIU (Service Employees International Union), when this yutz actually stated;
“I had a nurse– nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving.”
Biden said such a thing wouldn’t be allowed “during COVID time,” but it’s not clear when such a practice would ever be allowed in a hospital setting.
Tom Elliott of Grabien News surmised Biden was referring to his stay at Walter Reed, when he had surgery to deal with a brain aneurysm.

If polls are to be believed, then Marine Corps recruits at both Parris Island and San Diego would be taught that Hillary Clinton is the top dog in their chain of command.
Suffice it to say, I’m not the only conservative who questions the veracity of polls, especially since the 2016 presidential election.
Unfortunately, no one seems to have informed the media. In particular, the Fox News Channel. Suffice it to say that the liberal Establishment Media still conducts themselves as the Ministry of Propaganda for the Democrats.
Nonetheless, case in point would be that nearly every one of the FNC news anchors and field reporters breathlessly telling the world just how badly President Trump is getting his ass handed to him by Joe Biden. With that said, I’m going to use the latest Trump vs Biden FNC poll (July 19, 2020) for illustration purposes.
Be it known that I’m the kind of guy who more often than not doesn’t take anything at face value. Just because someone “heard it on TV” or “saw it on line” doesn’t make it the truth.
Watching five minutes of CNN or MSNBC, or reading five minutes worth of the New York Times or the Washington Post will tell you that.
Anyhow, just a few fine points I’d like my fellow conservatives to take as peek at, especially when it comes to steering folks into **believing** how we collectively will vote.
Side note: Nearly as bad as liberals, many conservatives have the very nasty habit of believing any given headline (regardless of how outrageous it is) is Gospel truth. If you see a headline claiming Nancy Pelosi has been impeached or Ilhan Omar has been deported, it’s total bullshit. Go to the article itself, you’ll more often than not will see that no half-way reputable news service is cited. The whole thing is just made up fake news clickbait.
Anyhow, back to the topic at hand.
1). Does it really make a difference who conducts any given poll?
One would think this is a no-brainer. Saying this in all objectivity, both Left and Right have their own biases. That’s simply human nature. I would no more trust a CNN poll as I would a Newsmax poll.
Even polls that are supposedly “right down the middle” (such as Fox News or Pew Research), simply aren’t. A bit deeper into this article, I’ll point out how.
2). Beware the MoE!
Rarer than a transvestite Yeti on roller skates, just try finding a poll that doesn’t have an MoE (margin of error).
All the MoE does is to allow the pollsters the opportunity to shift the verdict as they see fit, period, end of sentence, full stop.
The cited FNC poll states their inquiry has “a margin of sampling error of ± 3 percentage points.” Keep in mind that I’ve seen MSNBC and CNN polls with MoEs as high as 7-11 points.
Example, if 10 or 100 or 1,000, or billions upon billions of people were asked “Will you vote for Candidate A or Candidate Z?”, the least amount of legitimate responses are the following;
Not sure yet/someone else
Prefer not to answer
Just for illustration purposes, let say that 100 people were polled regarding Candidates A and Z with an +/- MoE of 6.
55% said A
44% said Z
1% said Not sure yet/somone else
0% prefer not to answer
It sure seems simple enough to say that Candidate A is crushing Z by double digits (11 points), right? Well, not really.
This poll can arbitrarily change the numbers simply by implementing their MoE of 6.
Candidate A has now magically dropped by 6 to a new percentage of 49, now in second place.
Candidate Z has now magically taken the lead by adding the MoE of 6, ensuring that Z is cited as receiving 50 percent of those polled prefer him.
Seriously, how hard is it for a pollster to add up the totals where only four responses were possible?
3). It really is important how many people were polled?
This may be presumptuous of me, but in a nation of roughly 330 million people, you’d think that FNC would pose such an important question to more than a miniscule 1,104. Right?
You would think.
4). The voter status matters.
“Likely Voters” are the beast gauge of people who really will cast their ballots. Nothing short of Nuclear Winter will keep these folks away from the ballot box
“Registered Voters” (what Fox News did) is code for slack-assery. Just because your 30-something Starbuck’s barista with a Master’s degree in Lesbian Dance Theory was registered to vote when he got his driver’s license doesn’t mean a damn thing.
“Adults” is the worst category of people to poll. For all the pollster knows, they could have on the phone a stoned 18-year-old illegal alien.
5). “Political Identification” and what it means.
For whatever bizarre reason, in the FNC poll, they polled more Democrats than Republicans.
Here’s the real kick in the avocados… they knew exactly who they contacted due to Fox simply going off of whatever party the voter in question registered as. Here’s the numbers of who Fox polled;
46 percent Democrat
42 percent GOP
12 percent Other/Independent
If you find this particularly outrageous, FNC admits that they have quite the history of pumping out bullshit numbers.
Example, they note that from 23-26 Feb. 2020, they polled 50% Dems, 41% GOP, 9% Indy/Other.
Also, during 27-30 Oct. 2019, they polled 49% Dem, 41% GOP, 11% I/O. How in the world is this fair?
6). MoE for “Subgroups” is where pollsters REALLY lie to you.
Be advised, BEFORE pollsters starts skewing thing with their stated MoE of 3%, they FIRST monkey around with “subgroups”.
Deep in the weeds… in the very small fine print buried deep in the bowels of the poll is where we find out just how bad the lying has been (page 19 of 39).
Before FNC kicks in the overall MoE of 3%, they factor in the dozens of listed “subgroups”.
For instance, here are just a handful examples of how FNC (supposedly a non-partisan poll) paints the picture they want;
The meat and potatoes of the Fox poll was Question 8 (page 5 of 30: “If the presidential election were today, how would you vote if the candidates were: Joe Biden or Donald Trump or Other/Wouldn’t vote/Don’t know”
IMPORTANT! FOX, and no one else for that matter, ever cites the raw numbers… but let’s just throw out a few possibilities.
In regards to Question 8, what if Trump had an overall raw number of 55, Biden – 40, everyone one else, 5.
Fox gets those raw numbers, then REALLY monkey’s around with them (page 19 of 39).
For white RV (Registered Voters) overall, regardless of sex, age, income, education, etc., both Trump and Biden supporters specifically each have a +/- MoE of 5%. Please keep in mind that this can shift the numbers a total of 10 points. So technically, they can recalculate the raw numbers to Trump dropping down to 50, Biden rising 45.
Hmmm… interesting, huh?
But wait, there’s more. As soon as they’re done screwing with the numbers for Trump and Biden supporters, THEN they further shift the All RV’s by an additional 3 percentage points to play with. They can lower Trump again… raise Biden by 3.
Another example, non-white women (a Democrat stronghold), regardless of age, income, education, etc., give Biden supporters a whopping 9.5% MoE. Trump supporters are listed as N/A. In other words, Trump is considered to be so unpopular among non-white women, he’s given a 0% rating.
But we’re not done yet regarding the non-white woman demographic. Once the pollsters change up the Biden supporters numbers by 9.5%, THEN they further change things up with All RV non-white women overall with ANOTHER MoE. This time, it’s another eye-popping 8%.
By the time the pollsters get done shifting the raw numbers to what THEY think we should be told, THEN they kick in the final +/- MoE of 3%.
When you lay with dogs, don’t be surprised when you catch fleas…
Remember when New York City’s chief of police (official title: Chief of Department) Terence Monahan posed for the cameras and joined the mob in ‘taking a knee”, as seen in the video below?
Well, Terry may have thought he was in tight with the thugs, but now it seems that these jackals have turned on the same guy that knelt with them.
As it turn out, there was (yet again) another “peaceful protest”, this time on New York’s famed Brooklyn Bridge.
For whatever bizarre reason, Chief Monahan thought it was a good idea to make a showing. Even more bizarre, Monahan thought it was a good idea to only have a handful of officers escort him into the belly of the beast.
In retrospect, that wasn’t too bright of an idea. At least two other officers injured and an undetermined number of stitches later, and at least 10 arrested…
Monahan received “non-life threatening injuries” during the scuffle and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
A police source said Monahan’s hand was injured and required stitches after protesters attacked NYPD officers with a chain during the morning rally. At least two other officers were also injured.
The attack on Monahan came just one day after he [Monahan] said in an interview that there’s “a feeling on the street that the police are handcuffed,” and “are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement.”
“[T]here’s a lot of different factors into it. We’ve mentioned bail reform and COVID releases, but just as importantly, if not more importantly, is the animosity towards the police that was generated after the Floyd protests,” he told New York’s 1010 WINS.
“The new law that was passed by the city council has cops hesitant. They are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement. The disbanding of anti-Crime, obviously, has a huge effect. Those are our best cops out on the street, grabbing guns. So, there’s a feeling that it’s safe to carry a gun on the street.”
Wednesday attack comes in the wake of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) confirming that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of NYPD, despite a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest.
Three officers violently attacked by protesters crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. The officers sustained serious injuries.
Ghislaine Maxwell kept a cellphone wrapped in foil to try to shield her location while hiding out on a sprawling New Hampshire estate, prosecutors revealed Monday.
FBI agents discovered the amateurish attempt at counter-surveillance during a security sweep of the secluded mansion where Maxwell was busted earlier this month, according to papers filed in Manhattan federal court.
While searching the place, the feds “noticed a cell phone wrapped in tin foil on top of a desk, a seemingly misguided effort to evade detection,” prosecutors wrote.
The crude cloaking effort was clearly aimed at law enforcement and not “the press or the public, which of course would have no ability to trace her phone or intercept her communications,” prosecutors wrote.
Would it be out of bounds of me to publicly wonder out-loud if we should happen to find her suicided while in custody?
If revisionists want to erase history, then go all the way…
Everyone from Antifa to Fox News contributor Gen. Jack Keane (US Army, retired) have called for the removal of memorials to Confederates and/or renaming certain US Army bases that up until now have commemorated a handful of CSA Generals.
According to these historical revisionists, Confederate leaders, both military and political, are guilty of a multitude of sins. Their rationale runs the gamut of propagating slavery, to high treason against the United States.
Of course, these same people who damn Southerners from the 1860s judge them by 2020 (usually Leftist) standards.
Not wanting to rehash a debate that’s been raging at least for the past 160 years, the re-writers of history are in dire need of assessing history from the macro level.
Examples would certainly be Shawnee Chief Tecumseh as well as Hawaiian King Kamehameha. After all, both of these men waged war against the United States. Additionally, both cultures have historical episodes of taking rivals as slaves.
In all fairness, Kamehameha never really “went to war” against the United States, but he did authorize an attack on a US merchant vessel, killing the entire crew, save one.
Without a doubt, Tecumseh waged war on the US, not once, but twice. First as leader of an Indian Confederation during 1810’s Tecumseh’s War, and later siding with the British during the War of 1812.
Interestingly enough, the US Navy has most recently had Tecumseh and Kamehameha as the namesakes of two separate nuclear ballistic missile submarines, the USS Tecumseh (SSBN-628) and the USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642).
By their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Navy never again name any US naval vessel after either of these men, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their personal leadership and fighting prowess.
Speaking of the Navy, they must cease forevermore naming ships after Indian tribes. Examples would include such as the USNS Cherokee Nation (T-ATS-7) and the USS Seminole (AT-65).
After all, more than a few Indian tribes not only waged war against the United States, the vast majority also had the nasty habit of taking captives of other tribes, then making them slaves.
As it turns out, the Navy isn’t the only guilty party.
The US Army honors American Indian tribes by way of naming helicopters after them. The fast, agile and deadly AH-64 Apaches and the UH-60 Black Hawks are two prime examples.
Alas, much like the naval examples of the Cherokees and the Seminoles, the Apache and the Black Hawk tribes not only went to war against the United States, they were also known for forcible slavery.
Again, by their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Army should never again name aircraft after any Indian tribes, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their warrior ethos and fighting spirit.
However, the below video is relevant due to its reporting that members of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation are actually celebrating the South Dakota National Guard’s UH 72 Lakota helicopters.
The aircraft will be utilized as secondary emergency medical evacuation helicopters for the state’s many Indian reservations.
This may be presumptuous of me, but I get the impression that these particular Native Americans are proud that this helo is named after them.
President Trump warned of the upcoming War on Christianity…
While it’s widely accepted that among the canon of saints, Catholics and Orthodox have a special veneration for the Virgin Mary.
Both would agree that even our Protestant brethren would never knowingly disrespect the Blessed Mother of Jesus Christ.
After all, it’s a certainty that Our Lord followed the Fifth Commandment. No Christian worth his salt would even think of purposefully dishonoring His Holy Mother/Theotokos.
Nonetheless, possibly following part-time BLM spokesman and full-time fake black guy Shaun King tweeting out that any and all images of Christ and the Blessed Mother should “come down,” this weekend is almost at an end, and on Saturday a Catholic church in Florida has been set on fire, and also during the weekend statues of the Virgin Mary have been vandalized in Boston and Brooklyn.
All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down.
They are a gross form white supremacy.
Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda.
At around 10:00 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a call about a fire in the area of 284 Bowdoin Street in Dorchester, the Boston Police Department said in a Facebook post.
“On arrival at Saint Peter’s Parish Church, officers observed a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary which had been set on fire,” the department noted.
In a similar instance on Friday, the Diocese of Brooklyn said the New York City Police Department (NYPD) was investigating the vandalization of another statue of the Virgin Mary at the Cathedral Prep School and Seminary in Queens.
“Security footage shows an individual approaching the 100-year-old statue shortly after 3 a.m. Friday morning and daubing the word ‘IDOL’ down its length,” the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reported.
Sadly, the Catholic parish of Queen of Peace in Ocala, Florida, isn’t like most Catholic parishes. This parish regularly celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass, the core of which goes back to the 4th century.
But what makes this particular parish stand out today is that a man with a criminal record just today drove his vehicle through the church’s front doors, the proceeded to pour gasoline out onto the vestibule, then set the church alight.
In the church as the time were a number of parishioners preparing for morning Mass. None were reported as injured.
As reported by the official Marion County (Fla) Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook account;
However, the Orlando Sentinel is also reporting that Shields doused the church with an undisclosed amount of gas before setting the church on fire.
The paper is also citing that Shields is also facing the following charges;
Attempted second-degree murder
Burglary with assault
Eluding law enforcement
Coming as a surprise to no one, Shields already has quite the violent criminal past.
A Dunnellon [Florida] man found himself behind bars late Sunday night after a woman claimed he wanted to murder her.
The victim told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that 23-year-old Steven Anthony Shields allegedly had swung a crowbar at her twice before telling her to lie on the ground so he could hit her on the head and kill her. She said she fled from their Dunnellon home and went to a neighbor’s house to call for help.
Deputies then spoke with Shields in the front yard of the residence. He claimed that he did want to murder the victim with a crowbar but denied swinging it at her, a sheriff’s office report says.
After being read his rights, Shields allegedly said he wanted to “kill her because she was a ‘stupid (expletive deleted).’” He also claimed he wanted to use the crowbar because he did not want to “dirty his blades,” the report says.
It goes without saying that due to Bill de Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm Jr.) gutting the NYPD’s budget by over $1 billion, coupled with his saddling-up with the domestic terrorist known as BLM, has police morale dipping to historic lows.
Of course, members of New York’s Finest have pretty much had it.
So much so that the number of officers submitting their retirement papers have seen an increase of up to 411 percent.
A surge of city cops filing papers during the past week more than quadrupled last year’s number — as the city grapples with a surge of shootings — and the stampede caused a bottleneck that’s forcing others to delay putting in their papers, officials and sources said.
The NYPD said Wednesday that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, an astounding 411 percent increase over the 35 who filed during the same period in 2019.
The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.
That number represents a 75 percent increase over the 287 who filed for retirement during the same time last year, the NYPD said.
Sources said the deluge of applications had overwhelmed the department — due to cancellation of overtime for the workers who process them — and that the number of daily applicants was being limited as a result.
Seemingly hellbent on turning the Big Apple into more of a Third World dung heap than he’s already succeeded in doing, officers are voicing their reasons for putting in their papers.
As penned by reporters Craig McCarthy, Tina Moore, Larry Celona and Bruce Golding, a line was actually seen forming outside of police headquarters at One Police Plaza in downtown Manhattan, a number of officers spoke on grounds of anonymity (emphasis mine);
“Apparently, the pension section is only taking a certain amount of people per day and I think they are backed up ’til late July, early August,” one cop said.
“That’s why you don’t see like 100 a day, because they are only doing like 35 to 40 a day, by appointment.”
“There’s just droves and droves of people retiring. But there’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job?” one cop said.
“Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do?”
“This is the best time to leave,” one cop said.
“You’ve padded the numbers as high as you can pad them.”
Another cop noted, “When they cut the OT, a lot of people were done.”
“Also, there’s another class hitting their 20th year in September, so that will be another group leaving,” the source added, noting that cops often retire once they hit the minimum requirement for pension vestment.
On a personal note, this reminds me of an old Russian saying; “People get the leaders they deserve.”
Maybe a bit more direct, to the people of New York City: This is the guy you voted for to be your mayor (twice) … this is what you get.
According to the release, “The email, sent by “Chaney P. Pickard” (per the emails, Pickard is with the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Center), via an official government email address: “Chaney.email@example.com”. The invitation was sent to an unknown number of recipients, but likely in the thousands if the invitation went to all Redstone Arsenal Army civilian and uniformed personnel.”
Yet whoever Chaney P. Pickard is, the same email claims to have both the imprimatur and nihil obstat of the US Army, claiming; “it is by the ‘U.S. Army Equity & Inclusion Agency’ and ‘Assistant Secretary of the Army – Manpower and Reserve Affairs'”.
Furthermore, Congressman Brooks’ office specified, “The illegal, racist and politically partisan material includes a pyramid graphic that claims the following are evidence of “White Supremacy”, and, hence, racism:”
Using the phrase “Make America Great Again”
“Education Funding from Property Taxes”
“Calling the Police on Black People”
Using the phrase “All Lives Matter”
“Denial of White Privilege”
“Celebration of Columbus Day”
Talking about American “Exceptionalism”
Stating “There’s Only One Human Race”
And dozens more!
For his part, Rep Brooks has stated, “Heads should roll,” and “The U.S. Army is not the place for political indoctrination or reeducation experimentation.”
Isn’t it awesome when liberal city council members get accosted by Antifa turds, then the same piss and moan because no cops are around?
Or how ’bout when bottom feeding criminal defense lawyers have to pull out the hardware when militant SJWs crash their gated community?
Yeah, few things are as satisfying as limousine liberals having to actually sully their lives when it comes to actually being a face-to-face with the same professional crybabies they champion.
Well, it is rather funny when the residents of a rather well-to-do (and decidedly liberal) neighborhood start complaining when sex traffickers and dope pushers invade your safe space. Nothing increases property values like used Love Twinkies and discarded heroin syringes strewn on the same sidewalks where your kids play.
Anyhow, coming as a surprise to no one is MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) reporting that the Powderhorn area of Minneapolis is now doo-dad deep with hundreds of homeless pitching their collective tents (double-entendre intended) within raping distance of their front porches (emphasis mine);
Every night, Angelina Roslik says she can watch a steady stream of cars pass in front of her home on a dead-end street overlooking Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis.
The cars — backing in and out, pulling up next to each other, or idling for long stretches at a time — are a new presence here, she says.
Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month.
“If you sit here long enough, you’ll start to see people coming and going. Coming to the passenger side window. Like we see right there,” Roslik said, looking out from her front porch on Saturday night. “A lot of times, it’s a woman getting in and out.”
She and some of her neighbors are conflicted. They want encampment residents to have stable housing and access to the services they need. At the same time, they feel the encampment is unsafe and unsustainable, for all involved.
But Minneapolis Park Board Commissioner AK Hassan said the crime neighbors are pointing to is not linked to the encampment. “When we talk about crimes that happen here, these are not new crimes,” he said at a press conference at the park last week. “Let’s not find excuses.”
Roslik disagrees. She said she has seen violent disputes at all hours of the night over the past couple of weeks, and people pulling out guns in broad daylight. She’s seen needles and feces scattered in yards up and down the street.
But on a much more serious note, KSTP-TV of the Twin Cities is reporting (video below) that the once safe Powderhorn area is now developing quite the rep for “sexual assaults”, also known to the politically incorrect as plain old rape.
Undoubtedly, one of the more powerful voices both before and during the War Between the States was undoubtedly that of freed-slave, Frederick Douglass.
While the latest fad amongst historically illiterates of the Marxist bend, destroying statues and memorials to long dead Confederates considered blasé, not only are the Founding Fathers, Catholic Saints, Christopher Columbus, Mohandas Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, US Grant… even images of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother are considered fair game by the Left.
The latest on the hit list is Frederick Douglass.
On the 168th anniversary of Douglass delivering an anti-slavery speech in Rochester, NY (1852 to be exact), sometime over the 4th of July weekend, a statue of the famed abolitionist in the same city was forcibly removed from its base and sustained minor damage to the statue itself (see news video below).
The statue was found roughly 50 feet from the largely destroyed base, leaning against a park fence.
While no group or individual has publicly taken credit for the vandalization of the statue, one plausible reason could be nothing more than Douglass was a member of the Republican Party. As noted by Bartelby’s, one of the more famous quotes attributed to Douglass;
“I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.”
Disgusting! We should all realize this movement is about promoting Marxism not stopping racism. They’re not going to stop folks.
Democrat candidate for western New York’s 27th Congressional District Nate McMurray just last month got his ass handed to him by now-Rep. Chris Jacobs (R-NY) in a special election to fill the seat vacated by Rep. Chris Collins earlier last year.
Nonetheless, if Rep. Jacobs wants to stick around in DC longer than six months, he’s going to have to run for election all over again this November.
Proving that everything old is new again, Jacobs will be facing leftie Democrat Nate McMurray… again.
But it’s doubtful that McMurray stands a snowball’s chance in hell. As previously noted, McMurray got his clocked cleaned last month.
Not only did Jacobs win, he kicked McMurray’s ass all up and down the street by a margin of nearly 70 percent of the vote for Jacobs, while McMurray garnered only 29.5 percent.
From the looks of the messages McMurry is sending out on social media, it sure looks as if he has some sort of a political death wish.
As re-tweeted by First Amendment activist Matthew Kolken, on July, 1, McMurray is urging American citizens to “report” Trump supporters;
Far left Democratic candidate for Congress calls for people to report "support" for Trump. The same candidate said if you support Trump you are a traitor, and hence guilty of treason.
This is a dangerous chill of 1st Amendment freedoms. #1A
I’d like to say this is actually something out of The Onion, Babylon Bee, or even one of my stabs at satire, but it’s not. This is real.
Leftist activists strike again. I’m sure they’ll find a way to claim this is all Trump’s fault (sarcasm, off).
As the New York Post is reporting, the world renown statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s famed Little Mermaid has been defaced and labeled as a “racist fish”;
Police said it had not yet identified the perpetrators. The 107-year-old sculpture, which is visited by 1 million tourists each year, has been vandalized before, including by anti-whaling campaigners and pro-democracy activists, twice suffering decapitation.
“We consider it vandalism and have started an investigation,” a spokesman for the Copenhagen police said.
Protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement around the world have in recent months rallied against statues of historical figures who played a role in racist oppression, such as slave traders and colonialists.
Perhaps putting things into the proper perspective would be Ane Grum-Schwensen, a researcher at the Hans Christian Andersen Center at University of Southern Denmark, who told the Danish news service Ritzau;
“I am having a hard time seeing what is particularly racist in the fairy tale ‘The Little Mermaid’”.
First things first… can we all agree that Jesus was ethnically a Judean? Of course He was.
Common sense and Sacred Writ both dictate that Jesus wasn’t German, Mexican, Ethiopian, or Japanese. He is as He was born, a Judean, period.
Nonetheless, various cultures have often times in the history of Christianity depicted the Holy Family as members of their own particular ethnicity.
For centuries, many a missionary have agreed that if depicting the Blessed Mother embracing the Infant Jesus as a Navajo or Laziale or Yoruba helped those same people better relate to the Madonna and Holy Child, then all the better.
But with all that Church history aside, one of the head honchoes of the BLM movement, Shaka Afrika X (born: Reginald “Reggie” Driggers of Yemassee, South Carolina) has filed a federal lawsuit against not only against the Roman Pontiff, but also against the Patriarch of Constantinople.
Mr. X’s complaint? That both Eastern and Western Christendom never correctly portrayed Jesus, as X claims, as a Sub-Saharan Black African.
Possibly taking his cue from professional fake-black guy and fulltime grifter, Shaun King’s rather provocative tweet calling for the destruction of any statues/depictions of the Holy Family as European.
All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down.
They are a gross form white supremacy.
Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda.
In an interview with the Picayune Intelligencer, X correctly notes that during the Third Council of Carthage (Canon XXIV, pages 649-650) held in 397 AD, Church leaders from throughout the Christian world definitively placed into canon which Sacred Scriptures are indeed the Inspired Word of God, and what isn’t.
Prior to Carthage, there were literally dozens of “gospels” and scores of other “epistles” that may have been well intentioned, but certainly not the Inspired by God, as believed by nearly all who profess themselves as Christians.
But back to Mr. X. He blames both the Catholic Pope and the Orthodox Patriarch (who officially separated in the 11th century) for “perpetuating the myth that Jesus what white.”
X also erroneously cited the Apocalypse of St. John as stating that “Jesus had hair like white wool, and His skin was like polished brass.”
In Hitler’s Germany, it was known as the Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda (Imperial Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda); in the days of Stalin, they were known as the Otdel Agitatsii i Propagandy (Department for Agitation and Propaganda); Mao initiated in China the diacritically-friendly the Zhōngguó Gòngchăndǎng Zhōngyāng Wěiyuánhuì Xuānchuánbù (Chinese Communist Party Central Committee Propaganda Department).
Call it what you will… but when you get right down to it, it’s nothing more than fake news, AKA: propaganda.
In a move that surprised no one, in a joint news conference the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, Tom Perez, and CNN president Jeff Zucker have announced that CNN is now the official “culture consultants” and exclusive news network of the Democrat Party.
Formally known as the Official Bureau of Exploitable Yokels (OBEY), CNN anchorman Chris “Fredo” Cuomo was quoted as saying, “Duuuuuh“.
For those who believe this article is rather hard to believe, you’re right. This is just satire. But just barely.
To those that find this cultural shift to be patently absurd, please know this is satire. But just barely.
While anything and everything that draws an actual delineation between male and female considered fair game, a college professor from Weissbrot, Minnesota has been rocking the linguistical boat towards some very dangerous shoals.
Dr. Lili von Shtupp, head of both the Lesbian Studies and Cultural Marxist Theory Departments at Augustus LächerlichBlass Community College in Weissbrot County, plainly stated in an interview with the campus newspaper, the Exiguous Examiner, her accusation that the Spanish language is “sexist, misogynism, and Islamophobic” all at the same time;
“While I have no academic standing in any particular language, I do know that the Romance Languages have both the so-called ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ nouns. The greatest offender would have to be Spanish, simply because it’s spoken by well over half-a-billion people… and that’s just too much word-rape as far as I’m concerned.”
“No longer ‘Latino’ or ‘Latina’; no longer ‘Mexicano’ or ‘Mexicana’; we have taken it upon ourselves to change the language to forcefully incorporate ‘Latinx’, ‘Mexicanx’, etc., regardless if Spanish-speakers like it or not,” von Schtupp proclaimed.
“Something else that gets my panties in a wad, when I do bother to wear panties, is the blatantly racist manner in which Spanish uses the word ‘negro’. Spanish needs to be told that ‘negro’ went out in the 1960s. The proper Spanish word for black is now ‘African-American.'”
Getting down to the nitty gritty, the professor continued, “Just as a for instance, a Spanish-speaker in Peru would say black as ‘Peruvian African-American’, a Spanish-speaker in the Dominican Republic would say black as “Dominican African-American”; a Spanish-speaker in the former Spanish colony of Equatorial Guinea, which Spanish is still the official language, would say black as ‘African African-American.'”
It should be noted that Dr. Schtupp consistently mispronounced the Spanish word ‘negro.’ As properly pronounced in Spanish, phonetically is said “neh-GROW’ with a slight rolling of the “R”. For whatever bizarre reason other than her own ignorance, Schtupp kept pronouncing it “KNEE-grow.”
Perhaps the most head-scratching claim by the tax-payer paid educator was that the Spanish language is Islamophobic. Regarding the Muslim invasion of Spain in the 8th century, she claimed, “The peaceful Moors were able to actually see Spain from their vantage point at the Maḍīq Jabal Ṭāriq [also known as the Straights of Gibraltar], therefore, the peace-loving Muslims had a valid claim to all the Iberian Peninsula.”
Getting even deeper into the weeds, “However, when the evil, imperialistic Spanish Catholic monarchies illegally displaced the peace-loving Muslim Moors, the Spanish language legitimized not only a city name, but also a family name Matamoros, literally translated as ‘Killer of the Moors.'”
“We the Word Warriors of the World need to consolidate our power to purge the Spanish tongue of Matamoros. That surname and city name desperately needs to be replaced with ‘Perdónamemoros.'”
As seen in the tweet below, rich, white, English-speaking liberals wokesplain to all the backwards Spanish-speaking people of the world.
Remember Harriet Beecher Stowe’s famous 1851 book “Uncle Tom’s Cabin“? More than a few scholars credit Stowe’s anti-slavery novel as being one of the moving factors in Abraham Lincoln eventually embracing the abolitionist movement.
With that in mind, on the heels of a mob in San Francisco ripping-down statues of St. Junipero Serra, the first Catholic saint canonized in the U.S., and also the man who penned the Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key, the same mob also unceremoniously took down a statue of Pres. Ulysses S. Grant, the same man who also led the Federalist Army during the War Between the States, as reported by MSN News.
Here’s what the liberal media won’t tell you, a statue of Harriet Beecher Stowe was collapsed by an angry mob.
So as I rhetorically ask, why would liberals want to defile a monument dedicated to one of the major anti-slavery icons of her time? Simple. There’s an internet rumor floating around that Stowe’s maternal grandfather, Eli Foote, might have been involved in the slave trade in the late 1700s.
As it turns out, all hoaxes do have a grain of truth to them. Noted by the academic reference website NCpedia, “Between 1789 and 1792 the Footes [Eli and his brother, Justin] sponsored several trading voyages to Martinique, St. Croix, St. Martin’s, and St. Eustatius [all three are Caribbean islands renown as waystations during the slave trade].”
That’s pretty much of the “evidence” against Stowe’s grand-dad.
In fact, NCpedia went into further details of exactly what type of cargo the Foote brothers imported into the newly born United States, “Their Murfreesboro [NC] warehouse was packed with articles of commerce when, on the night of 17 Apr. 1791, they became victims of Murfreesboro’s first crime of record. Thieves broke into the warehouse and made off with chintz, linen, silk, and other goods.”
While no one with a lick of common sense would advocate dropping a statue to Stowe, please know I just made this whole thing up. This is nothing but satire… but just barely.
As L/Cpl Animal Mother once famously asked on the battle-scarred streets of Hue City back in 1968: “You talk the talk. But do you walk the walk?”.
That’s probably what’s going on in the mind of Raz Simone, failed rapper and self-anointed warlord of the world’s latest political entity, the Empire of Chaz (or CHOP or CHEEP or CHIRP. Whatever the hell they call themselves this week).
“It’s not enough that the City of Berkeley, the Greater London Council, or the Realm of New Zealand have all declared themselves nuclear free zones. The full weight of the People’s Republic of CHOPizonia joins with our oppressed sisters, brothers, and assorted siblings of undetermined or sundry genders in renouncing any running dog imperialist American nuclear weapons breach the hastily constructed walls of CHAZistan.
It was then that an aide whispered into Simone’s ear that the name de jure is currently Transpeoplevania. Unfazed, Il Douche continued;
“The same ban applies to nuclear energy. After all, we’ve already proven that we can live without fossil fuel, so obviously, we won’t need nuclear power.”
Simone continued, “Keep in mind that the only time we’ll need light would be after sunset, fire not only fulfils that need, but also ensures we can cook whatever food is either sent by our parents, or we liberate from the indigenous people of…. what are we called again? Oh, yeah… Transpeoplevania.”
The de facto leader concluded, “As long as we have abandoned small businesses spontaneously bursting into flames, all of our energy needs will be met.”
Thankfully, none of this is true. It’s all satire. But just barely.
The United States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were mistaken for people of importance.
Later in the same futuristic sci-fi novel, Heinlein also penned of the American obsession with the opinions of athletes and actors;
… so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be both ignorant and subliterate every time he opens his mouth. (Most of his fans were just as ignorant and unlettered; the disease was spreading.)”
Armed with the prophetic words of Heinlein, it’s being reported that Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr., of Marshall College has uncovered ancient writings possibly proving that everything old is new again.
As Dr. Jones plainly stated;
In a years long archeological excavation along the Tiber River, a number of stone tablets were painstakingly re-assembled after they were destroyed by patricians, praetorians, and plebeians alike, apparently due to growing tired of being subjected to the endless dronings of overpaid athletes and those who play pretend for a living.
Thankfully, many tablets of protest from the populace were also discovered fully intact.
One such artifact was chiseled for posterity by an anonymous shepherd sometime in the early 2d century BC. Loosely translated from the colloquial Vulgate Latin; “I’m fed-up with that loudmouth Culusae Nothus Kaepernicus. He had one good year with Ludus Gallicus, then went downhill from there. Now his latest stunt is to kneel during the Luxque Romanum? No way. I stand for the Luxque Romanum, and kneel only for Jupiter.
Yet another tablet discovered is that of 1st century AD Roman politician Lucius Neratius Priscussine. In a scathing attack on Screechus Joylessia Beharus, the lawmaker opined, “In a recent performance of Visum held at the Flavian Amphitheatre, I’ve absolutely had it. Her constant and largely libelous screeds against the Emperor have pushed me to the edge. If this second-rate comicus hack isn’t careful, she just might find herself going on a ride with the Brazen Bull.”
Just to be clear, please know that none of this is true. It’s all made up, just satire. But just barely.
As the world waits with bated breath, the vaccine for the COVID-19 virus just may have already been found. Interestingly enough, the touted cure has not been developed by any particular government, but a privately owned company.
In an unverified leak from an anonymous source overheard in a darkened stairwell, the Frostbite Falls (Minnesota) Picayune Intelligence is reporting that Dr. Bunsen Honeydew of Henson Labs has discovered an aerosol vaccine for the same virus that just so happens to have a 99.7 percent survival rate. Click this emmitsburgems.org/
As supposedly noted by the fictitious publication;
Dr. Honeydew has factually stated that either equal measures or even unequal measures of CS gas, popularly known as “tear gas”, as well as pepper spray, popularly known as “Aaaargh, my eyes!”, has quite the medically palliative effect on the human body once exposed to COVID-19.
The researcher expanded on his breakthrough experiment;
“One solid whiff of that stuff, the coronavirus inexorably evacuates the body, usually in the form of snot, tears, boogers, phlegm, and sometimes lunch.”
The rather animated scientist went on to excitedly relate his latest research;
“My experimentation assistant Mr. Beaker and I are on the cusp of a secondary vaccine. Our work with tactical rubber bullets has shown promise. As Beaker will testify, a 37mm chunk of hardened rubber flying at 600 feet per second to the chest, abdomen, or ‘nads will literally knock the shit out of you.
Beaker will have to undergo further trial tests to determine scientifically if the same shit knocked out contains any of the coronavirus.
We should know more in a few more months.”
By the way, none of this is real. It’s all made up. Just satire.
While most historians place the blame directly on the Empire of Japan for the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, a university professor is forwarding the notion that the Dec. 7, 1941 sneak attack is actually the fault of the United States.
According to the University of California at Berkeley Department Head of Revisionist History Dr. P.R. Seitz, the fault of the battle should actually be laid at the feet of the United States.
Of course the open warfare was the fault of the U.S. It was the United States that purposefully initiated hostilities with the pastoral sons of Nippon.
As evidenced by the Congressional Representative from Georgia, Hank Johnson, islands can not only capsize, but can also float. Kind of like how that giant floating mountain of ice ruined Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s post-coital bliss.
Anyhoo… here was the Imperial Japanese Battle Group, peacefully practicing dropping bread on those subjugated by white devils, over the horizon appeared the Hawaiian Islands; complete with the American Pacific Fleet, an entire US Army division, as well as numerous military airfields.
It should be noted that Seitz abruptly cancelled the interview when asked if it was possible that the Japanese islands of Honshu and Kyushu accidentally drifted into the areas where the Americans were live-fire testing Fat Man and Little boy.
It’s fully understood that anyone with an iota of common sense would be furious if this were true, but it isn’t. The entire article is satire. But just barely.
The most recent casualty of the war on police has been the Frank Capra classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.” As shocking as it may sound, the driving force behind NBC’s cancellation of their annual Christmastime airing is due to actor Ward Bond’s positive portrayal of “Bert the Cop.”
In a recent interview with People’s World media, NBC’s Sr. Vice President of Social Justice Compliance, Laurence Beria, matter-of-factly stated;
Not only is Bert the Cop falsely depicted as a jovial, “anything I can do to help” type of person, the character is also guilty of glorifying war, Western imperialism, and white privilege.
It was revealed towards the end of the film that the character of Bert was a member of the US Army during WWII, served in North Africa, and was awarded the Silver Star medal for personal heroism.
With that aside, Mr. Beria concluded his rather laconic statement;
The grittier alternate reality timeline of Capra’s propaganda film in which Bert is darkly portrayed as a skull-busting oppressor of the proletariat is undoubtedly closer to the truth.
At least that’s what I was taught at Berkeley.
While I understand that this may be seen as patently absurd to anyone with even an iota of common sense, fear not. Just to make sure your paying attention, this is satire. But just barely.
As seen in the video below, Minneapolis’ tousled-haired grad student turned mayor ostensibly got his groove back.
While Mayor Jacob Frey may have earned his Juris Doctor degree at the Villanova University School of Law in 2009, he actually started-off in the world of higher education in 2004 at Virginia’s prestigious College of William & Mary.
Majoring at Contemporary Urban Dance Theory at W&M’s Drama and Theater Department, Frey showed-off some of his college educated super-groovy moves while he danced for peace.
Hizzonor also made a point of highlighting his Minor degree, History of Twenty First Century Hipster Haute Couture.
Always the political fashion plate, Frey went full Pajama Boy when he transformed his signature skinny jeans into clamdigger skinny jeans. Eat your heart out, Laura Petrie.
It sure looks like Frey’s $127,000 college debt for his BA was money well spent.
Just to make sure you’re paying attention, this article is satire.
A Federal Protective Services officer was shot and killed Friday night in Oakland, California, during the riots over George Floyd’s death, the FBI said Saturday morning.
In a statement, the FBI the shooting occurred at the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in downtown Oakland. A vehicle pulled up to the building and a suspect fired gunshots at security officers outside the building, the FBI said.
The shooter hit two contract security officers, with one dying from his injuries. The second officer was wounded, but the FBI did not list his injuries. The FBI said it is working with the Oakland Police Department on the investigation.
Federal Protective Services officers prevent and protect terrorism and criminal acts threatening government infrastructure and buildings. It is part of the Department of Homeland Security.
In the wake of the death of Minnesotan George Floyd, as well as millions of dollars worth of riots and arson, The Washington Times is reporting that Floyd didn’t die from asphyxiation, as suspected by many.
George Floyd died Monday from a combination of preexisting health conditions exacerbated by being held down by Minneapolis officers, not from strangulation or asphyxiation, based on the medical examiner’s initial report.
Preliminary findings from a Tuesday autopsy conducted by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner found “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxiation or strangulation,” according to the criminal complaint filed Friday against former officer Derek Michael Chauvin.
“Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease,” said the complaint from the Hennepin County Attorney. “The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.”
Finally… upwards of $450 million a year will stop flowing into the never satiated gaping maw of the United Nations’ WHO (World Health Organization).
It doesn’t end there. The President is also bringing to a screeching halt the Communist Chinese presence on the campuses of US colleges and universities. Known as “Confucius Centers”, many are actually riddled with diplomatic, military, and industrial spies working directly for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).
Pres. Trump also hit Beijing directly in the wallet by cancelling Hong Kong’s preferred trade status, in the shadow of the CCP essentially ripping up the British-China 1984 reunification treaty which guarantees HK’s autonomy until 2047.
The Communists have recently declared Hong Kong’s autonomy essentially null and void.
Democrat hearts everywhere are just all aflutter over the first black woman to become the President of the United States (of course, if Joe wins. Even then, he’ll resign after six months “for health reasons).
Despite more buzz than my graduating class in 1977, all the hype regarding Sleepy Joe choosing an ethnic minority female running mate may end-up being all for naught.
As reported by Breitbart.com, Biden certainly appears to be backing away from bringing onboard a “woman of color” as his running mate;
Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump “ain’t black,” told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction.
“Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet,” the former vice president said when asked if his running mate would be a woman of color. “There are women of color under consideration and there are women from every part of the country under consideration.”
“There’s a lot of really qualified women that are ready to be president, but I’m not making that commitment,” Biden added.
It’s no secret that President Trump and the social media titans don’t have much love for each other.
While more than a few conservatives very well may agree with the Prez that the likes of Twitter and Facebook have a distinct bias against conservatives, we’ve also wondered what could ever be done to ensure these internet giants cease and desist from their collective heavy-handed silencing of anything and everything that even dares to slightly lean right.
With the official title of White House Correspondent, Jeff Mason of the Reuters news service is noting that White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has cryptically told the WH press corps that President Trump that something, indeed, will be done.
.@realDonaldTrump will sign an executive order shortly about social media and internet companies, @PressSec tells reporters on Air Force One. The president has been very critical of @Twitter in the last 24 hours.
While McEnany was short on specifics, many on the Right are breathing a sign of relief that the very same supposedly “politically neutral” tech companies that have an almost total stranglehold on social media will finally be brought to heel.
While the likes of Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have a special dispensation from the US Congress that these Silicon Valley companies are not technically considered news organizations, there is speculation that the President very well may deem them such, therefore making them subject to anti-monopoly legislation.
Cuts of hundreds of staff members at the White House and at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have curbed leaks and stifled anti-Trump activists within both agencies, according to senior administration officials.
Acting DNI Richard Grenell, who stepped down Tuesday, streamlined ODNI in his four months in office by reducing staff and contractor positions by as much as 400.
Mr. Grenell said other positive reforms during his brief stint included declassifying congressional testimony showing no collusion between Trump officials and Russia in 2016, and imposing rules to protect the identities of U.S. officials inadvertently captured in overseas intelligence intercepts.
The changes were aimed at shifting the focus of ODNI away from being a separate intelligence agency and toward its original mission as a coordinating body for 17 U.S. spy services.
In response to questions about cracking down on unauthorized disclosures from within, Mr. Grenell revealed that his team had uncovered a leaker inside the office “clearly misusing classified information, and we referred the individual to the FBI.”
No other details were provided, but the leak was said to be damaging. The FBI is in the early stages of conducting an investigation into the ODNI official.
A senior Trump administration official said ODNI and the National Security Council staff until recently were two repositories of resistance to Mr. Trump and his agenda by people who “felt they had a duty to undermine the elected president of the United States.”
If you aren’t exactly sure who Sheldon Whitehouse is, he’s the pasty-faced, doughy, somewhat lispy junior US Senator from the great state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (yes, that’s the full name of the state).
With that aside, Sen. Whitehouse also has somewhat of a habit of pissing off certain high-level federal judges.
Example, as recently reported by The Federalist, Whitehouse filed a brief threatening the SCOTUS to either rule the way he sees fit on a pending case involving firearms and the state of New York, or else.
As reporter William Maurer of The Federalist reports, Whitehouse’s brief is best summed up as “A friendly reminder, like when a mugger tells a witness not to go to police or his legs might break.”
It’s bad enough that Whitehouse has already threatened the Supreme Court, but now he’s going after Judge Neomi Rao of the District of Columbia’s Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.
As Maurer cites, Judge Rao is (emphasis mine) “one of three judges on the panel that will hear the emergency petition for a writ of mandamus filed by General Michael Flynn. The writ General Flynn is seeking would order the district judge hearing General Flynn’s case — Emmet Sullivan — to grant the motion of the United States to dismiss the charges altogether, ending the prosecution.“
However, reporter Maurer also notes of the situation Whitehouse has plopped himself into the middle of (emphasis mine),
“In this case, the defendant agrees with the prosecutors that the case be dismissed. So there’s really no case or controversy left, that is, no reason for the judge not to grant the petition for a writ of mandamus. So how did Senator Whitehouse react? “Where you see Neomi Rao,” he tweetered Friday, “you can expect a lot of Trumpy dirt to follow. She’s a cartoon of a fake judge.” It was a shocking message on the eve of a judicial proceeding and from a member of the Judiciary Committee.”
The Marshall County (Mississippi) Sheriff’s Department is investigating as arson, the burning-down of the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs, MS, as reported by MSN.com news.
What makes this decidedly local story relevant to a nation-wide audience is that the pastor of First Pentecostal, Rev. Jerry Waldrop, recently sued the Holly Springs city government against the COVID-19 prompted stay-at-home order.
MSN is also reporting that the Marshall County S.D. cited that a none-too-subtle (and poorly spellchecked) graffiti message was also found on-site.
“Bet you stay home now you hypokrites” was found spray painted on the parking lot asphalt.
Along with the rather illiterate message was also painted the atom symbol with the letter “A” inside, according to the New York Times, which is also used as the logo for militant atheist groups.
To make things even more interesting, MSN is also reporting;
Waldrop sued the city in April, saying police disrupted an Easter church service and Bible study.
City Attorney Shirley Byers said the church had violated quarantine rules by gathering in a group of nearly 40.
Waldrop argued the parishioners had been practicing social distancing inside and had only congregated indoors when weather left no other option.
Gov. Tate Reeves’s (R) statewide restrictions have treated churches as essential services and allowed them to remain open, but the city’s rules were more stringent. In late April, it amended its order to allow drive-thru church services, according to the AP.
Byers said Waldrop’s lawsuit has not yet been served.
In the meantime, Gov. Reeves sent his condolences to the faithful of First Pentecostal;
It’s always a sad thing when an ex-child star seems to think his or her political opinion is somehow of relevance to the rest of us lower lifeforms .
Case in point would be Alyssa Milano, whose better days were a couple of decades ago.
As seen in the picture shared on Twitter (below), Nick Arama of RedState.com probably put it best; “This is so the perfect symbol of liberalism, complete virtue signaling, no reality, achieving nothing.”
Needless to say, Milano was hammered on Twitter with casinos list.
Remember back in the old days when you and all your buddies were all packed into your car after a hard 48-hours+ of equally hard drinking?
If you go back as far as I do, you may also remember (vaguely) that whenever you and your previously mentioned hammered friends ended-up getting pulled-over, and the cop resolved the problem at-hand by asking “Which of you is the least drunk? OK, you drive everyone home.”
Yeah, things have really changed over the years. I mean you had to really put forth a ton of effort to get tossed in jail for a DUI decades ago.
Much like driving while blind, society now frowns upon all forms of sexual harassment/assault.
Even in a CNN video from a mere dozen tears ago, Wolf Blitzer describes then-Sen. Joe Biden’s “playfully” stalking of co-eds back in the 1960s.
“Playfully”? How much of a creeper did you have to be to actually get arrested back then?
How easy would it have been for U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan to simply ignore Gen. Mike Flynn’s legal defense team’s request that Hizzoner be removed as the presiding judge in the now disgraced case against Flynn by the Department of Justice?
Very easy, that’s how. He just simply ignores it.
But not so fast, Judge Sullivan. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals just dropped a legal bombshell on you.
The 18-member Appeals Court just ruled today that Judge Sullivan has but 10 days to respond to the court filing against him that he be removed as reported by the Washington Times.
And there’s even better news for Flynn and his team – in the wake of the DoJ dropping the case against Flynn, the Court of Appeals has also invited the very same DoJ to give their opinion on Sullivan being replaced.
The Washington Times is also citing;
The order also revealed that two Republican-appointed judges will oversee Flynn’s bid to have the charges he lied to the FBI dismissed.
Judges Karen Henderson, an appointee of President George W. Bush, Neomi Rao, an appointee of President Trump, and Robert Wilkins, who was appointed by President Obama, will hear Flynn’s appeal.
I would think that no one really needs the likes of Adam Schiff to completely fabricate out of thin air a conversation that never really took place in regards to California’s Gov. Gavin Newsome’s attempted shakedown of President Trump.
The Golden State’s governor has made it quite clear that if he doesn’t get literally billions of federal taxpayer dollars (that’s you and me, folks), the first ones to be furloughed will be the thousands first responders employed by the many villages, towns, cities, and counties in California.
Appearing on Jake Tapper’s CNN program, “State of the Union” (video, below), Newsome was asked what would happen if California doesn’t get a rather health chunk of Nancy Pelosi’s proposed $3 trillion COVID-19 bailout.
Tapper: “Can you explain what you think will happen to California if the federal government doesn’t give you money to help you out?”
Newsome: “I hope they’ll consider this: the next time they want to salute and celebrate our heroes, our first responders, our police officers and firefighters, consider the fact that they are the first ones who will be laid off by cities and counties.
The folks who are out there, the true heroes of this pandemic, are healthcare workers and nurses. … They’re the first ones to be laid off.”
CA Gov. @GavinNewsom says his state’s budget deficit is directly related to the coronavirus pandemic and federal funding should not be looked at as charity, “when it’s fundamental purpose of government is to protect people’s safety and to protect their well-being.” #CNNSOTUpic.twitter.com/9XpDngudxV
California taxpayers will be cutting $500 Wuhan coronavirus stimulus checks to illegal aliens living in the state, Gov. Gavin Newsom proudly announced on Wednesday.
“California is the most diverse state in the nation. Our diversity makes us stronger and more resilient. Every Californian, including our undocumented neighbors and friends, should know that California is here to support them during this crisis,” Gov. Newsom said. “We are all in this together.”
Many years ago, I remember quite the D-lister movie hitting multiplexes everywhere, a real dud titled “Surf Nazis Must Die”.
Not only did I not know what a Surf Nazi was, I was also not quite sure who had the authority to put them all to death.
Here we are 33-years later, who knew this monumental belly-flop of a movie would end-up being prophetic?
As the Memorial Day long weekend is nearly upon us, New York City mayor and aspiring Oberst-Gruppenführer Bill de Blasio (born: ‘Warren Wilhelm Jr.’) has laid down the law to both New Yorkers and out-of-state visitors that if you hit the waves, the aqua-cops will be tossing you into a presumably soggy Paddy Wagon.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) warned Monday that the city is serious about keeping swimmers out of the water at its public beaches Memorial Day weekend, even as other locations begin to lift their coronavirus-related restrictions.
“Anyone tries to get in the water, they’ll be taken right out of the water,” he told reporters.
The mayor said that city officials would not put up police barriers at beaches, giving New Yorkers the chance to comply voluntarily. Swimming, lifeguards, parties, barbecues and sports would all be prohibited on the beaches, de Blasio added, and social-distancing rules will still apply.
“It’s a dangerous situation to ever go in the water if there are no lifeguards present,” he added, saying officials are also concerned about scenarios where large numbers of people take the bus or subway to beaches.
Only residents of the communities surrounding the beaches would be allowed to use the beach as “just open space you can walk on,” he said.
Are you one of the tens of millions who’s lost their job due to never-ending government quarantine orders?
Good news! After watching six-hours worth of videos from Johns Hopkins University, you’re qualified for the final exam. This may be unfair of me, but I’ll bet that test will be abought as tough as passing the placement exam for the University of Phoenix.
But there’s better news! According to NPR, “In all, 44 states and the District of Columbia now have plans to expand their contact tracing workforce…”
But, wait. There’s more! Know how much you can make by legally spying on your family, friends, and neighbors? Upwards of $65,000 per year as reported by CBS News. The Tiffany Network also cites that between 100,000 and 300,000 people will be hired nationwide as “contact tracers.”
If you’re worried that the free, six-hour course might be a bit too intellectually challenging for you, don’t sweat it. The decidedly leftie-leaning Wired.com reporter Megan Molenti cites (emphasis mine);
The free six-hour course, which teaches a mix of virology, epidemiology, medical ethics, privacy, and interview techniques, opened for registration on the online educational platform Coursera. Though it’s geared toward people with ambitions of joining the ranks of tracers, it’s open to anyone.
So that’s why on Monday morning, I AeroPressed an extra cup of coffee, turned off my Slack notifications, and settled into a sunlit corner of my couch, ready to take notes on how to catch a coronavirus killer.
Color me impressed. Who knew that virology, epidemiology, medical ethics, privacy, and interview techniques could be boiled down to a free, six-hour online course?
Also, is it just me, or does the line about catching a “coronavirus killer” sound just a tad bit de-humanizing?
A new Coursera class developed by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is now available to train contact tracers on the principles of the public health strategy many consider critical for slowing the spread of COVID-19.
The free six-hour course is open to anyone, but taking and passing it will be a requirement for thousands of contact tracers being hired by the state of New York to fight the pandemic. Within hours of its release Monday, more than 400 people had already registered for the class, according to Joshua Sharfstein, a vice dean at the Bloomberg School.
Amazingly enough, Lo-Flo Hidin’-in-the-Basement Sleepy Joe has proven to the world that between all the Botox injections to his rather plastic looking fivehead, then all the hair plug implants, poor Mr. Biden’s powers of recollection have been subject to some serious ass-whoopins.
As evidenced by his disastrous “virtual roundtable” with three Democrat governors, a more honest description would be the Zoom version of four clueless and completely out-of-touch political buffoons. Yes, it was that bad.
While Biden hosted Democrat governors Phil Murphy (NJ), Ned Lamont (CT), and Gretchen Whitmer (MI), as seen on the video below, during an exchange between the ex-VP and Connecticut’s Lamont and New Jersey’s Murphy, they all bemoaned of a problem that President Trump solved over a month and a half ago.
Specifically, why is there no single go-to-guy responsible for the ulcer-inducing task of coordinating all the supply/logistics on the federal level regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
As Biden complained (emphasis mine);
Well, one of the things I think you all did, and I’d call for really early on, was the need basically for a supply officer. If this were a military operation, if we’re going to war, you have to know where every weapon, every tank, every missile, every plane is at, and there’s a supply officer.
You go to where the need is the greatest, the troops that need the most help. And the best of my knowledge, that doesn’t exist right now.
Is there a one place you can call to get an answer to what is available and not available for you, or do you go to multiple places within the federal government, if at all?
Seriously… none of the four members of this particular roundtable knew that President Trump formally and quite publicly assigned the US Navy’s resident logistical genius, RADM John Polowczyk (pronounced: Pole-uh-chuck) as the head honcho of FEMAs COVID-19 “Supply Chain Stabilization Task Force.”
Don’t forget, Biden wants to be the President of the United States, and I wouldn’t doubt for a moment if he fills his would-be cabinet with the same low-caliber dolts that participated in that absurd “virtual roundtable” with.
Much like Hillary Clinton blowing-off hard-core campaigning in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, etc. during the 2016 presidential race, maybe Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should have spent a bit more time in New York’s 14th Congressional District instead of hobnobbing on late-night TV shows.
As Sleepy Joe Biden would say, “Here’s the deal, man”, turns out that AOC is seeing a very serious challenge to win the 2020 Democrat congressional primary from newcomer Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.
So serious is the challenge from Caruso-Cabrera that she is asking for campaign contributions on conservative Facebook Groups. From how often her FB ads keep popping up on the same conservative sites, she’s assumedly succeeding raking in some serious coin.
But one way AOC could ensure she’s on the ballot, even if she does lose the Democrat primary to MCC, would be that she could always fall back on being the candidate for the uber-leftist Working Families Party.
When I say “uber-leftist”, I’m not joking. Suffice it to say they make Barry Goldwater look like Bernie Sanders.
Anyhow, as reported by Emily Zanotti of the DailyWire.com, all Team AOC had to do is get 15 signatures from registered voters belonging to the Working Families Party. Hilariously, Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t even ensure that her minions successfully completed that amazingly simple task.
As noted by reporter Zanotti;
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have unintentionally handicapped her own re-election campaign after failing to get the necessary 15 signatures to place her name on the November ballot in New York under the “progressive union-backed Working Families Party (WFP)” per Fox News.
Ocasio-Cortez wanted her name placed on the ballot under the WFP apparently as a way of ensuring that she remains a choice for voters in November, even if she doesn’t make it through the Democratic primary for her Congressional district. She’s currently facing a tough primary challenge from Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, another Democrat with local ties to the Bronx, who has pledged to spend more time working with Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents and less time seeking national prominence.
“The Working Families Party is an independent political party that cross-endorses progressive candidates through New York’s fusion voting system — which allows endorsement across ballot lines — to press Democrats to the left and extract concessions without being dismissed by voters as a spoiler,” Fox News reported.
New York greatly scaled back the number of signatures candidates need to get on the state ballot in order to avoid candidates and their campaigns going door-to-door and potentially spreading the novel coronavirus. The state announced that just 14.5 signatures (functionally, 15 signatures) are necessary to earn a spot on a ballot line.
Ocasio-Cortez turned in “only 13 signatures from members of the progressive group that has dubbed itself the ‘Tea Party of the left’ — two short of what she needed to get on the ballot.”
If you think for one second that ‘America’s Confirmed Bachelor’ Sen. Lindsey Graham intends to bring his buddy Barack Obama before the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, guess again.
In regards to the declassification of the Obama Administration’s cover-up while they framed President Trump’s former National Security Advisor, Lt Gen Michael Flynn, the Palmetto State’s senior senator made clear that he has zero intention of ever calling Comrade Barry to testify before his committee.
Senate Republicans will investigate the Obama administration’s decision to target national security adviser Michael Flynn following the 2016 presidential election, but they do not intend to subpoena former President Barack Obama or require him to testify in front of a panel,Politico reports.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told media Tuesday that his committee is prepared to investigate former Obama administration officials, particularly officials affiliated with the Department of Justice, and the FBI over their targeting of Flynn in light of Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop perjury charges against the former national security advisor. Barack Obama will likely be left off the list of those asked to testify.
“I’m not anticipating calling President Obama,” Graham said, adding that it was likely the panel will question FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
HEIR TICKET TO PARADISE is the blood-red headband and the small metal key that they wear into battle. ”Sar Allah,” (”Warriors of God”), some of the headbands read in Farsi script, identifying the wearers as divinely designated martyrs who will use their keys to go directly to heaven if killed in the holy war against Iraq declared by their leader, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
The headbands and the keys are worn by young boys, aged 12 to 17, who are recruited by local clergy or simply rounded up in the villages of Iran, given an intensive indoctrination in the Shiite tradition of martyrdom, and then sent weaponless into battle against Iraqi armor.
Often bound together in groups of 20 by ropes to prevent the fainthearted from deserting, they hurl themselves on barbed wire or march into Iraqi mine fields in the face of withering machine-gun fire to clear the way for Iranian tanks.
Across the back of their khaki-colored shirts is stenciled the slogan: ”I have the special permission of the Imam to enter heaven.”
Living up to his promise made just a few short days ago, former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) made public the names of Establishment Media so-called “reporters” that are essentially little better than mouthpieces for Deep State Democrats.
Appearing on the FNC question-and-answer program “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, Gowdy must have decided that now is the right time to namedrop.
Richburg had the guts to tell many Americans exactly what they didn’t want to hear. Namely that the myth of Mother Africa is just that; a myth.
A foreign correspondent with The Washington Post, Richburg was The Post’s go-to guy in Africa from 1991-1994.
As noted that when he wrote the book back in the late 1990s, the government of Zimbabwe offered a glimmer of hope that it wouldn’t “tumble down the same slope of bloodshed, chaos and instability that had engulfed much of the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.”
Yet in the very next paragraph, Richburg laments, “Mugabe has destroyed what there was of a middle class. The country is in ruins, unable to feed itself; half the population of 12 million people is dependent on outside food aid.”
Then Richburg drops the hammer on Mugabe’s communist paradise, “The currency is virtually worthless, with inflation over 200 million percent.”
You read that right – inflation is over 200 million percent.
In his handful of years in Africa, Richburg’s had an AK-47 shoved in his face in Somalia, witness the handiwork of boy-soldiers in Uganda, and seen the stacks of corpses in Zaire prepared for dumping into mass grave.
The very first sentence of the first chapter leaves little doubt as to what a gut-wrenching horror story his first-person account of what Africa is really like (emphasis mine): “I watched the dead float down a river in Tanzania.” Richburg describes men, women, pregnant women and girls, children… even babies, bloated, discolored, some disemboweled, some with limbs macheted off, all floating downstream to Lake Victoria.
But what really caused an avalanche of hate from the American Left were these few short paragraphs (emphasis mine);
Sometime, maybe four hundred years ago, one of my ancestors was taken from his village, probably by a local chieftain. He was shackled in leg irons, kept in a holding pen or a dark pit, possibly at Goree Island off the coast of Senegal. And then he was put in the crowded, filthy, hold of a ship for the long and treacherous voyage across the Atlantic to the New World.
Many slaves died on that voyage. But not my ancestor. Maybe it was because he was strong, maybe just stubborn, or maybe he had an irrepressible will to live. But he survived, and ended up in forced slavery working on plantations in the Caribbean. Generations on down the line, one of his descendants was taken to South Carolina. Finally, a more recent descendant, my father, moved to Detroit to find a job in an auto plant during the Second World War.
And so it was that I came to be born in Detroit and that 35 years later, a black man born in white America, I was in Africa, birthplace of my ancestors, standing at the edge of a river not as an African but as an American journalist – a mere spectator – watching the bloated bodies of black Africans cascading over a waterfall. And that’s when I thought about how, if things had been different, I might have been one of them -or might have met some similarly anonymous fate in one of the countless ongoing civil wars or tribal clashes on this brutal continent. And so I thank God my ancestor survived that voyage.
Thank God my ancestor got out, because, now, I am not one of them.
In short, thank God that I am an American.
In the video below, this may explain why Richburg stated why he was glad that his ancestors were taken as slaves, but now that he and his family are Americans.
Allow me to also state that I could no more “celebrate” the life of Ginsburg any more than I could “celebrate” the life of any other person with the blood of millions of unborn children on their hands.
“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.”
Granted, Ginsburg was referring to the 2018 Barack Obama nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, yet somehow, Democrats conveniently forget that this particular sword cuts both ways.
How does forcing out four men of integrity equal a BLM “victory”?
In what’s being hailed as a victory for the Black Lives Matter terrorist group, Police Chief La’Ron Singletary, Commander Deputy Chief Joseph Morabito, Deputy Chief Mark Simmons, and Commander Fabian Rivera have all tendered their resignations from the Rochester, NY, Police Department.
Interestingly enough, both Singletary and Simmons are black. Morabito is of Italian lineage. Rivera was the highest ranking Latino on the RPD.
Rochester has seen multiple nights of rioting well over four months after Daniel Prude died while in police custody.
As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times (CST), Prude’s family “told police they suspected he was under the influence of the powerful hallucinogen phencyclidine, or PCP.”
The CST also cites that “community organizer” Ashley Gantt accuses the Rochester PD of treating Prude, “inhumanely and without dignity.” It was also noted that then police initially approached Prude, “he walked naked and bleeding down Jefferson Avenue in the southwestern part of the city.”
Buried deep in the article, the CST eventually noted;
“Toxicology tests as part of the autopsy found a low level of PCP, also known as angel dust, in Prude’s blood. The drug can induce schizophrenia and wildly erratic, violent behavior.
The autopsy report listed “acute phencyclidine intoxication” as a complication of his death. The medical examiner did not say whether the levels of PCP in his blood explained Prude’s behavior before and during his detention by city police and did not make any mention of preexisting mental health issues that might have come into play.”
With all that aside, MSN.com is describing that the resignations of the RPD’s top commanders “as a victory for the racial justice movement.”
With Chief Singletary leaving the RPD at the end of the month, he was quoted as stating (emphasis mine);
“As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character,” Rochester Police Chief La’Ron Singletary said in his open resignation letter.
“The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity,” he accused. “The members of the Rochester Police Department and the Greater Rochester Community know my reputation and know what I stand for.
The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude’s death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for.”
Yes, you read the headline correctly. A woman as below described is wanted by the Boulder PD for attacking a 12 y/o boy while he was riding his bike. Oh, and the boy also had with him a Trump yard sign.
A 12-year-old boy had to use his Trump campaign yard sign to block the flying fists of an attacking woman on a Boulder street earlier this week. That’s according to police documents acquired by CBS4 on Thursday.
The attack happened just after noon on Monday when the boy was riding his bike northbound on Folsom Street near Glenwood Drive. Police said a woman on a moped passed him and spotted the sign that he had on the back of his bike.
She then pulled a U-turn and drove up to him and started hitting him “in the back of the head and the arms” with closed fists, apparently because the boy supports President Donald Trump’s re-election bid. The woman then allegedly tried to take the sign away from the boy, but he was “using it to defend himself against the attack,”reporting officers said in their report.
The boy said he was struck between four and five times and also got scratched on the arm.
In a related report, the Denver Post cites (emphasis mine);
Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh said the suspect drove up to the boy and said something to the effect of “you want something to look at,” and used a closed fist to strike the boy in the back of the head and arms four to five times, and scratched him.
Keep in mind, this isn’t the first time liberals have attacked a child for sporting Trump gear;
Outside the DNC Convention tonight, radical leftists attacked a 7 year old boy.
First Lady Melania Trump chose to add a handicapped accessible sidewalk to the White House’s famed Rose Garden, which is certainly her right as the de facto cultural caretaker of the Executive Mansion in Washington, DC.
Unfortunately, NBC and MSNBC news analyst Howard Fineman has illustrated perfectly just how sick and twisted the Leftist mind really is.
Only a Leftist could equate a sidewalk specifically designed for folks in wheelchairs, that somehow he’s now deigned the same to be a modern-day Nazi parade ground.
Perhaps we should all thank the likes of Fineman. After all, individuals like him personify the truism of “Liberalism is a mental disease.”
