The Morning Report - 6/1/20

warsoro.jpg

Good morning, kids. Monday and another grim milestone of yet another day of America held hostage.

Except, America is not being held hostage by a Chinese virus or, to be more accurate, the phony propaganda about the virus as a pretext to take away our civil liberties. No, we are being held hostage by what can only be described as a pre-meditated, organized act of insurrection. For four years, the Democrat-Media Complex has failed in its singular mission to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States and destroy his wildly popular and successful agenda. Even its latest attempt - the forced strangulation of our economy with the concomitant loss of millions of jobs and businesses - is finally petering out, as are the slim chances of its standard bearer, a decrepit degenerate of mind, body and soul that can no longer be shielded from serious and substantive criminal charges, as well as a decades-long career of venality, arrogance, megalomania and incompetence. In that regard, Joe Biden perfectly encapsulates the essence of his party.

So what's left? We're now at the point in the film where after finally grabbing the cat, lighting the fuse, punching the accelerator in the escape pod and breathing a sigh of relief as the Nostromo explodes in a nuclear fireball in the rearview mirror, Ripley can breathe a sigh of relief as she strips down to her panties. And then...

As horrendous as the death of George Floyd was at the hands of a Minneapolis policeman, with three of his colleagues standing by and doing nothing to stop it, it in no way justifies the past several nights of out of control mayhem that have rocked numerous American cities. More to the point, it cannot have been a spontaneous reaction; someone or some group of people gave a pre-arranged signal to start this insurrection.

Former Secret Service agent and political commentator Dan Bongino:

"This is an organized internal coup by a small group of agitators acting as a domestic terror group. That's a fact...

"There were legitimate reasons looking at the tape of Mr. Floyd for all Americans who agreed in unanimity, for one of the first times I've seen in the last probably 10 years, that there was something seriously wrong there and you know what we're not talking about? Any of that because we're talking about an Antifa group, an organized group of agitators, committed unquestionably now to the destruction of the United States..."

David Horowitz, editor in chief at Frontpage Mag:

... Virtually every official in Minnesota with influence over the Minneapolis police and the decision to keep Derek Chauvin on the force despite his alarming record is a Democrat: the governor, the attorney general, the Minneapolis congresswoman and the mayor. The city council consists of 12 Democrats and a Green Party member. The Democrat Party is the "system" that protected the bad cop and led to George Floyd's death.

Just as the Democrats protected the bad cops, so they encouraged the rioters by fueling the myth of America's systemic racism, by not providing a sufficient police presence, when the mayhem started, to nip it in the bud, and by attacking Trump for "glorifying violence," when he warned the rioters that if the local authorities failed to protect law-abiding citizens he would meet force with force.

The organizers of the violence were two far left organizations - Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Until the Minneapolis riots Attorney General and former DNC head, Keith Ellison featured a picture on his website advertising the Antifa handbook for conducting civil war. The proximity of the Antifa-spearheaded riot in Minneapolis prompted Ellison to remove the photo, because Antifa's destruction of his capital city would obviously lead to bad press...

I see that Ellison's son has now openly pledged his loyalty to Antifa, along with the daughters of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Bro-Fo Omar/Nur and Bill DeBolshevik. They seem nice.

The estimable Daniel Greenfield:

...The Democrats created the atmosphere. They spilled the gasoline, lit the match, and are still too busy signaling their virtues and blaming Republicans, to do the hard work of putting out their own flames.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa are their organizations. The Minneapolis city authorities and the police force bosses are also their people. The atmosphere was the undiluted work of the Democrats. And with the pandemic fading, they dug into their old playbook and decided that it was time for a new crisis.

After locking down the country didn't work, the Democrats decided to set it on fire instead.

Bingo. From a political standpoint, I think the Democrats have done what one of their little darlings did last night - set themselves on fire with their own Molotov cocktail. And with President Trump officially declaring Antifa a terrorist organization, it's going to consume them. Already the brain dead meat puppets and warblers in the entertainment industry are rushing to defend a violent domestic terrorist organization, with cretins like Patton Oswalt trying to compare these cowardly sucker-punchers to the GIs who stormed Normandy. Calling Antifa "anti-fascist" is like Hitler declaring the Wehrmacht and the SS the same as the Irgun and Hadassah.

It's funny how everyone thinks Trump is brilliant at hoisting the Democrat-Media Complex on its own petard but it's not so much brilliance as it is common sense and the willingness to pull the rhetorical trigger. As David Horowitz notes, the mainstream Democrat Party going back almost 10 years to the astroturfed Occupy Wall Street event have embraced extremist and violent agitators in its quest to gain political victories. Even with 50-plus years of school brainwashing and reinforcement in the media, much of America finds what they stand for repulsive and abhorrent. With individuals such as Sanders, Warren, Bro-Fo, Rancida Taliban, Donkey Chompers and all the rest, there is no going back to the sham of pretending to be pro-American.

Whatever damage to Trump and the GOP that might have happened over the past few months, there is no way in hell real America is going to abandon him and embrace a Winnie Mandela 96-octane necklace. That's not just me talking:

... "This is going to get Trump reelected. Please stop. Think first. Do not get Trump reelected for your behavior," the woman said. "Please, Santa Monica. We don't want Trump reelected."

Even a dim-bulb in Soviet Monica knows that this does not play well in Peoria, despite schmucks like Ali Velshi felching up Baghdad Bob-esque hairballs of "mostly peaceful protests." Yes please, Democrats. Do tell us why Antifa are peace loving pro-American freedom fighters.

The die has been cast, and the Democrat-Media Complex has now declared open war on America to prevent what is now more than likely the re-election of President Trump and the further discrediting of their agenda and diminution of their elected power. But the forces of insurrection and treason are still at work and are not going to back down, especially as the weather heats up and we head towards both the Democrat and Republican conventions this summer.

...Who are those masked men in black with secret-service quality ear-pieces, military grade gas masks and backpacks full of Molotov cocktails? They are very likely professional rioters, recruited, transported and paid by the likes of some George Soros front group or other anonymous Cloward-Piven devotees who share Soros' hatred of America and want to see this nation bought to its knees. Panic over the virus was waning. These orchestrated riots across the country are the next ploy. Someone is organizing this madness. Someone is supplying the most lethal rioters with all the accoutrements of conflagration and moving them into place to all the affected cities. That all costs a great deal of money. Antifa owes its funding to Soros as do the more violent branches of Black Lives Matter. These players seem strangely secure that they will not be arrested or that if they are, they will be quickly released...

With the President officially declaring Antifa a terrorist organization, the full weight of the national law enforcement and national security apparatus must be brought to bear to destroy it. Frankly, death, destruction and mayhem warrant extreme measures as it is not hyperbole on my part to state that we face a mortal threat and open insurrection. Unfortunately, thanks to the Obama regime's almost total subversion of our national LE and IC agencies, there are doubts as to whether or not we can trust them to be on our side or the terrorists.

Here's an idea: declare war on Antifa and tap both General Mike Flynn and Rick Grenell to crush the insurrection. Target number one should be Nazi collaborator and convicted felon George Soros. He should be arrested and deported to Hungary as an actual Nazi collaborator, or better yet Malaysia where IIRC he has been sentenced to death in absentia. At the same time, all of his assets should be seized and every political front group be shut down immediately.

Obviously Soros is not the lone actor in all of this, and I strongly suspect individuals including Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and even Warren Buffet have been funding this madness as well. But the rot is deep; truly the Democrat Party is now an openly anti-American organization that seeks the overthrow of this nation. I'd say dissolve it as well but that's a bit more problematic. There's crossing the Rubicon but at some point I think the Rubicon will cross us, if it hasn't already.

35 One argument I'm getting tired of is that "since most of those arrested are local, there are no outside agitators."

That entirely misses the point, and uses a false model of what outside agitators do. They are not an army shipped in, but a relative few pros, who help their local allies organize and stir up "protests", then turn those into actual riots. If they're good at that, THEY will not be arrested. They're safely gone when the cops arrive, or at most watching from a distance.

46 Virtually every official in Minnesota with influence over the Minneapolis police and the decision to keep Derek Chauvin on the force despite his alarming record is a Democrat:


No way! They were in place to PROTECT Floyd. Trump is so evil and devious, he broke through the shields and ordered the death of floyd directly from the Oval Office. The only way to stop the violence is to elect democrats. We will not - uh I mean, the violence will not stop until democrats are in power!

47 Horowitz has it exactly right, of course.

It's the last rational thing Goldberg said, that when they blame the right, it's the right's fault. When the left is to blame, it's "America's fault."

That's true. Neither new nor deep, but what do you expect from Goldberg. This is as good as it gets for him. (He's only still around because a whale looked at him and said "I'm not THAT hungry.")

We wondered what they would do next? We are watching it.

Chinese Wuhan take over? Fail.
This will fail too, but not without many casualties as we are seeing. People now suffering with nothing left.

65 We could have and probably should have engaged in massive and violent riots when the Left tried to strip us of our votes and then locked us down in the greatest violation of civil liberties in U.S. history. It's still not too late, but given the horrible optics this will destroy the Left and its corrupt and evil house organ, the Democrat Party/Terrorists. We need to get serious and BAMN bring these monsters down one way or another.

I know, they will do it in federal court - just shows how evil and prepared Soros was for this: you get Antifa's/Nation of Islam's/CAIR's Keith Ellison and Kim Foxx in place in state government and they're like Holder: letting the activists off while bringing the full force of the law down on normies.

85 47 Horowitz has it exactly right, of course.

It's the last rational thing Goldberg said, that when they blame the right, it's the right's fault. When the left is to blame, it's "America's fault."

That's true. Neither new nor deep, but what do you expect from Goldberg. This is as good as it gets for him. (He's only still around because a whale looked at him and said "I'm not THAT hungry.")

And that's all I'm seeing from the left right now, at least on my own Facebook feed.

It's generic discontent not really tied to anything specific except the "American system", whatever that is.

So, it's just a bunch of anarchists and looters screaming about how much they hate America while Democrats pussyfoot with them when they're not bailing them out of jail.

I don't think this is going to play well with very large portions of the electorate.

124 Fellows of the Horde,

The day has arrived. They day I hoped would not, but knew in my heart of hearts would.

We have dithered too long. We have surrendered the initiative yet again. Now the enemy is in the open and burning down all we have worked to build.

Was it worth it? The businesses you were too preoccupied running that now lie in smoking ruins, first from lockdown, then from Antifa? The families that may have turned against you? The endless amusements made by people who load it with how much they hate us and what we stand for?

Was it worth it?

And now it will all be so much harder, what could have been accomplished even a decade ago.

I have stopped the pretense of being the praying type. Perhaps God and I will come to an accord in time. You, whatever your stance, make peace as you can.

The day is upon us.

We have one last choice: Surrender and go quietly...or make the world tremble under our footsteps as we did in older days.

The choice, as always, is yours.

I have no more to say on this, for there is no more to say.

His police department training department taught him.

So stand by for the riots when he walks.

I'm disgusted... appalled..and very worried that so many would behave so badly about the behavior of cops. It's extraordinarily rare for use of force outside of gunfire to result in death. This reaction shows that there is something else afoot.

This isn't about a dead suspect or a cop implicated in his death.

It's about a President. And a pretty good one.

If they oppose the protestors to save their cities, they have to attack their own most militant supporters.

Then the mayor and city council forget about the police force and police union, and move on to bigger challenges: Green New Deal-type crap and transgender concerns in the schools.

190 So my daily e-mail from MLB of news about the league this morning included an article about all the statements being made from MLB players regarding the George Floyd death.

Common theme is "Floyd should be alive today." And "white people need to understand what Black people go through".

Well, while that first statement is true, I noticed that none of the commentary from these athletes or anywhere else has stated that he would be alive today were he not involved in illegal activity. His arrest would not have even occurred were he not first engaged in illegal activity.

If we're going to talk about "what White people need to understand", maybe we need to talk about some things that "Black people need to understand" as well about participating in illegal activity.

This is an important point to remember, especially amid all the idiocy being spewed by athletes that this is all about racism and police "hunting" Black people. (Looking at LeBron James).

No one hunted George Floyd. He participated in illegal activity, cops were called, he was arrested.

Yes, call out the officer whose actions resulted in the death of George Floyd. But it is far past time that we addressed the case of actions by people leading to their arrest in the first place.

Also, the irony of everyone making this about racism. Had this situation been a Black officer and a White victim, this would have been nothing but a local news story.

George Floyd's death reverberates around MLB

204 As President Trump and we have been saying since EASTER/PASSOVER
The Cure is worse than the disease.

In 2014 when Mr. Floyd was released from prison in Texas, he moved to Minneapolis to start a new life. He was a truck driver and worked security (as he was a very large man) at a club/bar.
When the shut-down came as predictable as the spring brings leaves on the trees, People who live on the edge of life holding it together with string, were going to have serious problems.
And thus Mr. Floyd fell back on his old habits of drinking and or drugs.
It is clear by the video released of events from the very beginning of how the cops and Mr. Floyd came together, that the man was not in good shape.
He was a victim of what the President (and all fucking of us) warned. People are going to suffer. Sober people will lose their support systems and the regularity of their working life and fall off the wagon.
There will be death by overdose, suicide, abuse of family members, and inevitably DEATH by COP.
If it weren't for the EXTENDED shut downs, Mr. Floyd would be alive today.

Of course any trigger would have mobilized the goons to come out. But the crowds of the oblivious man mot have been able to be as manipulated without such a clear example of Deplorable Negligence and the acts of a soulless human being.

My blood pressure is thru the roof. People I speak to haven't slept in days because they are watching nihilists, emotional wrecks, and evil souls human beings destroy and disrespect civil society.

The Democrats/Left are a plague.

He's worse than Kennedy. At least with Kennedy there was a pattern, so you could predict that, if anything related to sex was involved, he'd go wrong, but if free speech was involved, he'd be right. Thus, the question marks were the cases they clashed, like the bakeshop.

But Roberts is like an electron. You never know where he'll end up. The lefties can't trust him any more than we can. The "institutionalist" label works up to a point, but has little predictive power. The best I can say for him is that his own rulings try to have minimal scope; he avoids broad rewriting of the Constitution and laws.

But that's like saying "We burnt only one store."

Director Wray ia all over it crying crocodile tears, which confirms to me the Wray has been in on the Coup from the very start, and has been actively opposing Trump and Barr at every turn.

My guess is that the only reason he stays is that Trump has decided it's better to fire him after the election, although I think that's a mistake. But Wray is as dirty as the rest of them.

Posted by: ALH at June 01, 2020 08:43 AM (w4wzp)

226 I posted this in the ONT at 1363,
My heart bleeds for the rest of the country.

It took us four days of screw ups to get it right here in Minnesota.

Up here in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, a quiet Sunday Night is followging a quiet Saturday night, which followed three complete flaming, looting shit shows in a row, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Why the change?
1. They declared a Curfew and Enforced it finally.
The declared a curfew Friday.
No one cared, no one obeyed it.
Just like the totally fucked up Thursday, Friday night had TRAFFIC JAMS around the big fires.
Idiots were out driving, biking, and walking around the rioters looting and burning.
The idiots blocked the fire department access and provided cover for the Criminals.
Saturday night they finally enforced the curfew and started scattering the mobs.
Sunday night they actually rounded up and arrested curfew breakers. They surrounded a crowd of about one hundred with 200-300 police. They took their time and let the curfew breakers settle down. They got the crowd to sit down, and then peacefully, respectfully took them into custody, one by one. No one got hurt, no one was disrespected, they all got sent to jail.
They did the same across Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
On Saturday and Sunday, they shutdown the freeways in Minneapolis and Saint Paul from 6 pm to 6am. The FREEWAYS!!!

2. They had enough people.
Wednesday and Thursday, The progressive Mayors of Minneapolis and SP tried to control the streets with just their own police and county sheriffs and were completely overwhelmed. Both cities were looted and burned.
Friday the governor stepped in with an extra 200 State Highway Patrol and 200, later 500 National Guard, but were again overwhelmed. Both cities were looted and burned. (See the trend?)
Finally Saturday Morning, Governor Walz called up the ENTIRE MINNESOTA NATIONAL GUARD!!!
He also called up all the state police, even the Department of Natural Resources Wardens. About 600 more police.
Saturday night they had 4100 National Guard out.
They blocked major intersections and bridges, isolating Antifa and the criminals from their targets and their get away routes.
They chased the rioters around so much, they couldn't cause trouble.
But they didn't arrest many.
Sunday Night with 7100 more National Guard, they started arresting anyone out after dark.
It was soooo quiet, the newscast which ran 24 hours a day for four days straight went to scheduled programs and infomercials.

3. The public got pissed off at the criminals and arsonists.
They started blocking off their own streets.
They yelled at anyone out after dark to go the f---k away!
The protesters out during the daytime emphasized they were peaceful.
They stopped the tagging.
They still did stupid shit like walking on the freeways.
Amazingly. When the Semi ran into the crowd, after they stopped it, a dozen protesters kept the driver from being beaten to death.
If the semi had pulled off the freeway or they only stayed off the freeways Sunday, it would have been almost a perfect day.

4. The Minneapolis and Saint Paul Police found a lot of Antifa "work cars."
Easy to spot, they had no license plates and had darkened windows.

NBC - Some fringe groups, most notably anti-government "Boogaloo" members
with guns, were seen in numerous cities, stoking fear that more severe
violence could be ahead. Law enforcement officials have also said they
are looking into anarchist groups that have previously shown up at civil
rights protests.

And anecdotal reports of white supremacists and
other extremist groups fomenting violence have been amplified by similar
claims from authorities, including Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who
tweeted on Saturday that the city is "now confronting white
supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and
possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our
region."








They are really going to push this lie no matter how thin it is that it's white supremacists doing this. Now I know some real dumb fck liberals who will fall for this but I really hope a lot of the suburbanites who are seeing this shit show up on their doorstep decide that this is what being oh so progressive gets them.

No one hunted George Floyd. He participated in illegal activity, cops were called, he was arrested.

Yes, call out the officer whose actions resulted in the death of George Floyd. But it is far past time that we addressed the case of actions by people leading to their arrest in the first place.
_______________

Yep, and while cops should not be kneeling on anybody's neck, if Floyd had simply gotten in the back of the cop car and sat down without resisting and struggling, he'd be alive today -- although probably not for long, given his apparently advanced state of coronary artery disease.

This isn't a Justine Damond situation, where a completely innocent person was killed without justification by a poorly-trained or incompetent cop. Floyd bears some of the responsibility for what happened to him, although the thugs currently trying to make him into a saint will never admit that.

They had someone with a stolen police radio playing rap music. I knew last night was going to be bad. The rioters are organized, they know where the cops are and they just keep them running around.

Law enforcement better get its shit together pronto.

Here, we worried about hospitals being overwhelmed, but it was really the police being overwhelmed that we had to worry about.

Posted by: bicentennialguy at June 01, 2020 08:53 AM (vg8iE)

267 Yesterday I put links to the police blog in Chicago ( second city ) and the concervative treehouse blog. The conservative treehouse ( link in nic) has interesting facts about the connection with the counterfeit money and Somali residents in Minneapolis, and the second city blog tells how many police in Chicago are in the hospital with serious injuries. We need to pray about this situation, and remember that the darkest hour is just before dawn.
I usually compare how Detroit is handling this ( NO RIOTS) although not from lack of trying by the agitators. But no news crews -except local news- and no mention on national news about how the Detroit mayor and police chief are doing this right. I've decided the PTB do not want this to stop. So it's up to us. Please pray and remember these stupid mayors and governors are being exposed. New York and Chicago will not want another De Blasio and Chicago will not want another Lightfoot, and people will realize that electing people like Whitmer ( who has not been heard from since this started) has real , undesirable consequences. The whole presidency of Pres. Trump has been like being in a maze like a funhouse mirror as they throw obstacles at us and him, but so far they have all not only been unsuccessful, but have worked to our advantage. I think we have a chosen leader, and all things work together for good for those that love God. And God is preparing a table before us in the presence of our enemies. So pray for all who are in danger and know that God is in the field whether we know it or not. That's a line from my favorite hymn.

288 With the President officially declaring Antifa a terrorist organization, the full weight of the national law enforcement and national security apparatus must be brought to bear to destroy it. Frankly, death, destruction and mayhem warrant extreme measures as it is not hyperbole on my part to state that we face a mortal threat and open insurrection. Unfortunately, thanks to the Obama regime's almost total subversion of our national LE and IC agencies, there are doubts as to whether or not we can trust them to be on our side or the terrorists.
++++++++++
And you've nailed the problem, JJ, intentionally or not. You phrase this as "must be brought to bear" - a directive - and not "shall be brought to bear" - a statement of fact.

The FBI is largely in charge of domestic counterterrorism. Yes their track record is a mix of covering up domestic terrorism (Las Vegas, New Mexico, etc.) or actively recruiting domestic terrorists and then losing control of them in bloody fashion (Pulse nightclub, San Diego shooters, various others). At least, the parts of the FBI aren't committed to coup attempts and railroading citizens do this.

Even if the FBI were competent (which I doubt), I don't think they're willing to do this job. If anything, their sympathies like with Antifa and BLM. They won't go after the big guys like Soros and his on-the-ground minions. They might round up a few cell leaders into a paddywagon, but it is unlikely they go further than that.

We have no Federal law enforcement or counter-terrorism - and little local law enforcement - that is not explicitly on the side of the terrorists. Trump can declare them a terror group and it is long since past due that he did so, but it won't make our Antifa-aligned (or at least Antifa-sympathetic) governments do a damn thing about it.

Oh, and then a non-white, super peaceful 'protestor' cold clocked a white reporter (totally not racism to attack someone based on the color of their skin, right?) on live TV, stole his wallet on camera, then a crowd of 'totally peaceful protestors' curb stomped him on live TV when he dared try to retrieve his wallet.

Reporter was peacefully beaten.

So yeah, there's a natural criminal class always out there, just waiting for a go signal to loot and cause mayhem.

I believe any unrest in Texas is being shut down pretty quickly. Of course the other side can always launch a surprise attack, like they did Friday night, but the response has been strong.

It also helped that we had Mayor Joe Riley who had been mayor since the 70s. He was out front of everything, making peace. He was a Democrat through and through, but he's still a good man (goes to my church, by the way).

If they really don't want to go back til August, then that church is dead already. It's not coming back, move on and don't feel bad about it.

Living things fight to stay alive, and Church organizations are living things. Or, when they stop trying out of fear or sloth, they become dead things. Mourn the loss, but also realize everyone else like you in that church is also figuring this out right now, and going elsewhere.

+++++++++++++++++
I don't know. I think Trump's odds are far less today than they were recently. I don't think it's unwinnable, though. Leftist terrorism in our cities is a double-edged sword. It plays very badly for the Left, since they're doing it. But a lot of people will attribute to Trump the responsibility for dealing with it. This is true to a point - if the locals can't or won't contain it, then the that is what the Insurrection Act and federal troops are for. It comes down to how people think about this. If the popular perception is that this is all Trump's responsibility and he failed, then that is bad. If the popular perception is that these mayors and governors are corrupt and incompetent and let things get completely out of hand, then it is less bad (still not good, because chaos and violence never are).

This is another important point to make... one could easily state that were it not for the Governor's stay-at-home orders over the COVID-19 scam, George Floyd would be alive and gainfully employed today.

Unless there is some evidence to come out later to say he has been involved in some illegal counterfeit money scheme, seems like he fell back into his old illegal activity lifestyle from Houston out of desperation after his job was taken away by the Governor's shutdown orders.

It was truly a random act and the left didn't have the assets on the ground to take advantage of it. I mean, Charleston isn't exactly some hot bed of left wing activity (though it's still the most left wing part of the state).

It also helped that we had Mayor Joe Riley who had been mayor since the 70s. He was out front of everything, making peace. He was a Democrat through and through, but he's still a good man (goes to my church, by the way).

Well..just go back and look over the news since late last summer/early fall -

the Left has been promising "Days of """Outrage!!!11"""" this summer since that point in time.

And here they are.

Imagine that.


Anything...anything at all could've been the fuse.

They would've preferred something to do directly with Trump,

but this has been planned and organized for a while.

350 Managerial incompetence by Democrats?
Think we're at a point where a lot of them *want* a revolution, so they're here to assist. See people like Keith Ellison.

Oh, there are useful idiots, too, such as these idiot mayors who are tweeting out their concern that - after many caveats about peaceful protests. need for change blah blah blah - we really need to stop this violence, OK?

Gee, did you miss all of the Bernie and Justice Democrat people talking about revolution, killing the rich? Spoiler alert: this wasn't hyperbole. They meant it. Helps when you recognize that it's people like Ilhan Omar, Linda Sarsour, Cenk Uygur and others who have no allegiance to America. They saw their familial homeland in flames and think this is a perfectly reasonable, realistic form of politics.

We say: "This is not America!" - well, we welcomed a lot of people into our country who are fine with this, because it's not destroying what they love, what they know.

Just because the owners pay assholes large amounts of money doesn't mean they're complete idiots. In both cases they'd be terrible at what they'd be hired for and it would be a public relations nightmare to get rid of them. People forget that Kaepernick was probably the worst quarterback who made it to the Superbowl and only concentrate on that the team made it that far.

If any owner thought there was a sliver of a chance they'd be any good, the virtue signaling alone would justify the hire.

358 I think they bunkerize the President whenever things get sporty at the boundary - not because they think they can't contain the riot and defend the White House, but because they take no chances with the President.

I'm with the OP, the fact that we are informed that the President was bunkerized encourages the terrorists.

Either it is a lie manufactured by the Enemedia, it is a deliberate leak to the Enemedia, or yet another example of the foolish naivete within the White House to even let his information out.

The statement that Trump was "bunkerized" only helps the Enemy portray the president as scared, weak and desperate while encouraging the rioters to go in and finish the job.

Clearly the Secret Service isn't going to stop the rioters.

There are reports that sixty SS agents were injured. That is sixty SS agents not available for duty. And the commander of this group probably is thinking more of the movie rights and book deal for telling the story on how the rioters prevailed and saved the country from Trump.

I trust absolutely no one in government.

359 How many white supremacists among the thousands arrests around the country or did they all manage to slip away?

Posted by: Ripley at June 01, 2020 09:09 AM (MxEKc)

360 Minneapolis needed a strong statement condemning the cop's actions, since it was so flagrantly against policy (handcuffed and subdued and still knee on neck ... no cops I know of have anything but condemnation). ... The response instead was timid, and they basically offered up cop cars and businesses as compensation.


But behind the scenes, imo Soros (or those like him) are not only funding terror groups, they are funding politicians and others to stand down and even promote the anitfa/BLM reign of terror. "Make room to Riot" is insane policy, but that is probably just an excuse to actually promote the anarchy and terror. (Room to Riot supposedly is a pressure relief valve ... but the arson and vandalism is only destructive ... it further terrorizes neighborhoods, the opposite of justice, it promotes more injustice, more real victims)

361 Minneapolis police manual allows officers with training to use the knee on neck technique to render a combative subject unconscious



Even NBC has a story about this, which is going to seriously complicate any prosecution.


Not so much. This is verbatim from MPD procedures:

"The Unconscious Neck Restraint shall only be applied in the following circumstances: (04/16/12)

On a subject who is exhibiting active aggression, or;

For life saving purposes, or;

On a subject who is exhibiting active resistance in order to gain control of the subject; and if lesser attempts at control have been or would likely be ineffective.

Neck restraints shall not be used against subjects who are passively resisting as defined by policy. (04/16/12)

After Care Guidelines (04/16/12)

After a neck restraint or choke hold has been used on a subject, sworn MPD employees shall keep them under close observation until they are released to medical or other law enforcement personnel.

An officer who has used a neck restraint or choke hold shall inform individuals accepting custody of the subject, that the technique was used on the subject."

They see Biden for the dead man walking that he is. Wait until the campaign ramps up and you see Biden standing next to the Antifa thugs. The images are already out there, but they will be used heavily

Biden supports this violence. All the left do.

395 So, with the risk of sounding like Hannity, I know there are good police officers out there.

However, if you are in a Democrat run city and have a Democrat police chief, it seems to me that the purpose of the police is to harass white Christians for non-violent infractions that put them in no danger whatsoever. When the going gets tough and "minorities" start to riot, the police seem to check out completely, and let the rioters do whatever they want. And, from what I can tell, most businesses have riot insurance, so really, it's a victimless crime. Protestors get to destroy and loot, police don't put themselves in any danger and destroyed businesses get insurance money. So it's a win for everyone.

The bigger story over the long term that was completely crowded out by the rioting is that the SCOTUS just declared that the First Amendment doesn't apply if there's an "emergency."

They gave the case to Minnesota Attorney General Ellison, the Communist Islamist Father of an Antifa supporter.

Expect Ellison to overcharge everyone. The other three cops get acquitted. Chauvin is either acquitted, or has a hung jury.

Mike Freeman actually got a conviction of Minneapolis Police Officer Noor but it was only for 3rd degree murder. Noor who shot an unarmed night gown clad Justine Damond and got all of twelve years.

Ellison will mess it up, and Minneapolis will burn again. My prayers are that the trial happens in January or February, so maybe the violence can be limited.

419 Roberts wrote a short opinion to express his agreement with (and to explain) the denial of the church's request. He began by noting that COVID-19 "has killed thousands of people in California and more than 100,000 nationwide," but there is "no known cure, no effective treatment, and no vaccine." Moreover, he added, people "may be infected but asymptomatic" and therefore can infect others unknowingly. The California order at the heart of this case, he observed, temporarily restricts the number of people who can gather in public "to address this extraordinary health emergency."

It's because, as was discussed here last week, there isn't a grand conspiracy. Everyone in the press and government is just aligned in the same direction.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at June 01, 2020 09:09 AM

Thanks for that info, Bandersnatch.

The part about "exhibiting active aggression" is interesting. Because the charging documents state that Officer Chauvin and one of the other officers in the vicinity were talking about worries of excited delirium. And it was also stated that Floyd was resisting arrest and throwing himself on the ground to make the arrest difficult, prior to the eventual incident where Chauvin put him on the ground and put his knee on his neck.

If it is shown that Floyd was exhibiting active aggression and they were worried about excited delirium, they could make the case that they used the correct training technique to restrain Floyd.

That will not go over well with anyone...

Last night as the rioters started to move out of Chicago to the burbs, she was talking to me about it with fear in her eyes (I was loading and checking the few I have at the time) I said, it's time to purchase a few more, including some longer range than the ones I have.

I cannot see Trump hiding in the basement unless SS tied him up and carried him. Now Melania and Barron are probably somewhere safe.

And hell, let's be honest. The protesters are not going to try to actually storm the White House. They have been going after soft targets and only attacking where there is no defense or they can count on the defense standing down. It would be a bloodbath there.

Now, you have to figure they might actually try, but a lot of their foot soldiers are going to have a sudden change of heart when bodies start falling. They would have to hope they had enough 'outside contractors' to actually make such a thing work.

Either way, if they did, this whole thing changes complexion immediately and becomes an open coup attempt. Not sure they are ready for that.

You must know that the only reason for the White House protests was the hope that they could get live video of protestors being shot in front of the White House. That's the only thing they wanted, and the idiot protestors on the front line were just cannon fodder to be sacrificed.

We've got to always be mindful that these are *Political* attacks, with Political goals. The response needs to be firm, but NOT give them what they want, which is video of shootings.

If they can get it through COVID, fine. But if they can get *better* chaos through rioting, then they can allow COVID response to stand down.

Nope.

Yep. It was attempted earlier in Georgia. This is an op, just like coronavirus, which the smarter communists are trying to return to because they know this isn't going well for them.

I disagree. Just like you said, the Georgia incident failed.

How likely is it that you get a stupid cop that is so oblivious of what he is doing wrong in front of cameras for EIGHT MINUTES!?!?! Derek Chauvin was even smirking as he ground that disobedient perp's neck into the pavement.

Bleeding nose? No problem. Rookie officer saying Floyd had no pulse? Keep gring that knee. He was going to teach that mofo a lesson!

Where could you get a picture perfect, out of control cop?
AND ON VIDEO! With people saying STOP!

The worse part is Ellison will help Chauvin beat the rap too.

558 "More to the point, it cannot have been a spontaneous reaction; someone or some group of people gave a pre-arranged signal to start this insurrection."

I said early yesterday this was the dry run for a full scale insurrection/coup in November following the election.

It is testing reaction time, organization, the ability to target government locations, political influence so the police stand down, reaction time of civilians "counter-revolutionaries", organization and willingness to use force of said "counter-revolutionaries", reaction time of the federal government, degree of response of the federal government, and other factors necessary for a full analysis of the planned action.

And I would expect there are contingency plans for a repeat in January should the November Revolution fall short. Remember, even Lenin needed more than one uprising.

Are you old enough to have been alive when that happened? Of course not. I'll tell you exactly what happened - that was the end of the riots in America. It was like a light switch was flipped. Once people realized the guard meant business that was that.

The anti-war protests ended when the draft did. It was never about the "poor Vietnamese people." It was about saving their own skin. Once the lefty boomers knew they were safe, they didn't care anymore.

No protests or concern about what subsequently happened in SE Asia as a result.

569 No one hunted George Floyd. He participated in illegal activity, cops were called, he was arrested.



Yes, call out the officer whose actions resulted in the death of
George Floyd. But it is far past time that we addressed the case of
actions by people leading to their arrest in the first place.

_______________



Yep, and while cops should not be kneeling on anybody's neck, if
Floyd had simply gotten in the back of the cop car and sat down without
resisting and struggling, he'd be alive today -- although probably not
for long, given his apparently advanced state of coronary artery
disease.



This isn't a Justine Damond situation, where a completely innocent
person was killed without justification by a poorly-trained or
incompetent cop. Floyd bears some of the responsibility for what
happened to him, although the thugs currently trying to make him into a
saint will never admit that.

Posted by: TrivialPursuer at June 01, 2020 08:47 AM (k4dH2)

It is extremely questionable whether Floyd committed a crime even if he did pass a counterfeit $20. That is only a crime if it is done with the intent to defraud the recipient. 1 of every $10,000 is counterfeit so most people will have inadvertently passed on counterfeit money in their lifetimes.


It is very disheartening seeing people excuse the murder of this man in the way I am seeing it from some here (and elsewhere on the interwebs). Chauvin was a lousy violent cop. He is that despite the fact rioters have been using his victim as an excuse to burn the world down.

You neglect to mention that an Army recruiting station in Kent Ohio the night before was torched and burned to the ground.

Also, there is evidence that suggests the Guardsmen were actually fired upon first by the Weathermen who were responsible for the previous night's arson. They were there to foment violence.

Again, play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Too bad some college kids got killed in the melee but they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I don't understand what "I failed to mention" changes anything I said.

The students who were killed were not shooting at anybody.

YOU "fail to mention" that conservatives nationwide condemned the actions of the Guardsmen after an exhaustive inquiry.

The actions of the OH NG can't be defended, & even the MILITARY didn't attempt to do that.

Well, unless the cop was mobbed up and was sent to make an example out of a desperate employee who stole their money. In that case, he may have reasonably thought trying to create a public scene would have made it harder for the cops to murder him.

I saw stories suggesting the guy's wife is a model or beauty contest winner or something, and he has a second house in Florida. Being a cop in Minneapolis must pay pretty well, or maybe...

The Guard was not posted there for no reason. There was violence and threats from the Weathermen the night before and even a year up to the shooting. Just like today, the nation was on the verge of tearing itself apart, with the Left fully to blame for the violence, using the Vietnam War as an excuse to foment insurrection at home. Agnew's comments, sadly, were CYA.

It's easy to condemn things from a Monday morning quarterback position.

Sad that the students got killed but as I said, they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the Weathermen willing to use their dead bodies as propaganda tools with which to further sow division.
