COLOR ME AMERICAN IN 2022

One Citizen Speaking says …

CHOOSE-YOU

Has anyone else noticed that when the Democrats define or describe an individual, they are always life’s losers: evil or victims? Never individuals, but members of an identity group, You are either a target or a victim that needs to vote Democrat to address your grievances and be singled out for special treatment. You are never treated as an individual but as another member of a collective community expected to march in lockstep with the Democrats and engage in “groupthink” lest you be shunned or attacked.

The Democrats speak of equality but carve out exceptions under the law. Punishing individuals for the acts of random strangers who might superficially identify as a member of your community. As if YOU  are guilty of the same offense.

A clear example can be found when some crazy goes off their psychotropic meds and shoots up a school or workplace. Why is that suddenly the fault of millions of innocent, law-abiding gun owners? Or the manufacturer of the weapon. Truth be told, it is not about crime control; it’s about political power and protecting the elites from the consequences of their actions – as anticipated in the Second Amendment.

Reparations? Explain why billions of taxpayer dollars flow abroad to build new air-conditioned schools in Afghanistan when our inner-city schools are dilapidated and decaying? What of the billions flowing to inner-city projects, only to be siphoned off by politically-connected vendors and developers – charging outrageous sums for trivial goods and services? Much of it never used as it sits abandoned in warehouses beyond the reach of those most in need.

A friend of mine attended an auction where there were doors stacked on pallets. It seems they were purchased and were later found to run afoul of the purchase order specifications. He bid on the doors, all 800 of them at $2 per door, with a promise they would be removed from the premises by close of business. I guess nobody else noticed that the doors were fitted with $300 security locksets – which he removed and sold for $150 each. The system is permeated with waste, fraud, and abuse, but nobody seems to care.

Has anyone noticed the institutionalism of political corruption? Public employee unions support the politicians in charge of negotiating their contracts – with nary a concern for the citizens even though municipalities and states are technically insolvent when one puts unfunded pension liabilities back on the books. How is it that the teachers and some public employees get paid for not working while the rest of the private sector suffers? How can one standby and watch small businesses close and their employees forced into accepting government assistance, sometimes more than they would have made while working?

Bottom line…

Isn’t it about time you were treated as an individual? About time to curb rampant political waste, fraud, and abuse? Isn’t it about time we demanded equality under the law and quit dividing Americans as the Democrats go about destroying our country from within?

Enough! And it starts with being treated as an individual, with dignity, respect, and equality under the law. Choose “you” in 2022.

ARE JOE BIDEN, MITCH MCCONNELL AND OTHERS HOPELESSLY COMPROMISED BY THE CHINESE?

Elaine_Chao_official_portrait_2
Too angry to write something now after reviewing how Mitch McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Transportation, abused her office to promote family interests with ties to the Communist Chinese regime.

So it comes as no surprise that the DOJ refused to investigate the McConnell family and apparently went easy on Joe Biden. It was MAD – mutually assured destruction that would have caused the American public to distrust the leadership of both corrupt political parties. In China, Chao's family runs an American shipping company with deep ties to China's economic and political elite, where most of the company’s business is transacted. They are totally dependent on the Chinese Communist Party for their business fortunes.

DOJ refused to open Trump official abuse probe –report

Allegations have surfaced this week that former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao may have abused her position during her time in office to help out her family business but that the Department of Justice declined to investigate the matter further.

A report by the inspector general's office that was made public on Wednesday alleges Chao mixed government business with her family's shipping business. Notably a planned official trip to China in November 2017 that included family members and extensive plans to make stops at schools that received support from the Chao family business. The trip was later canceled.

Allegations of Chao's misconduct also included the use of government staff as personal shoppers and to run personal errands on behalf of her father... as well as "other potential misuses of position that warranted additional review."

The inspector general's office referred its findings in December to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia for criminal prosecution, which declined to open a criminal investigation, as did the Justice Department's Public Integrity section. <Source>

It’s all here…

March 2, 2021 -- Letter to Chairman DeFazio Regarding Potential Conflicts of Interest Involving Former Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao

On October 11, 2019, and December 20, 2019, Chairman Peter DeFazio of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure requested that we investigate reports of potential conflicts of interest and favoritism involving former Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao. Prior to receiving Chairman DeFazio’s letter, our office had opened a preliminary review regarding the issues raised in that letter as well as other matters. This letter provides information on our preliminary review and subsequent formal investigation into potential misuses of position. We referred our investigation’s findings to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia on December 16, 2020, and the U.S. Department of Justice Public Integrity Section on December 17, 2020, both of which declined prosecution. <Source>

The 44-page letter contains the report…

Evidence Relating to Potential Ethics Concerns Discovered During the Course of the Investigation

During the course of its investigation, OIG discovered evidence relating to potential ethics concerns arising from the actions of the Secretary and Office of the Secretary (OST) staff under her direction. The facts underlying potential ethics concerns include:

a) tasking OST political appointees to contact the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about the status of a work permit application submitted by a foreign student studying at a U.S. university who was a recipient of Chao family philanthropy,
b) including family members and personal events in the Secretary’s planned, but subsequently cancelled, trip to China in November 2017,
c) providing DOT Public Affairs and media support to the Secretary’s father, and
d) using DOT resources and OST staff time for tasks for the Secretary that appear to be personal in nature.

Obviously, there is much more to be investigated regarding China-friendly statements (propaganda?) and actions taken concerning China, especially the Communist Chinese Pandemic.

Bottom line…

The establishment wing of the GOP needs to go as well as the progressive socialist democrats. No wonder why Mitch McConnell did not protect former President Trump. Chao’s qualifications for office are superb; it’s her family connections that are problematical.

We are so screwed.

BEFORE THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS DEFUND THE POLICE

A look at 47-hours in Los Angeles…

If the video has not been deleted by the tech tyrants, it can be found here.

Over 47 hours in L.A., 18 people were shot, 4 of them murdered. All of them were either Black or Hispanic. The youngest was 19. Send a clear message to the Police Commission that it's time to end the violence in our city by going to: http://www.whereistheoutragela.com (Los Angeles Police Protective League).

STATBottom line…

This is the type of statistic that illustrates that only certain black lives matter. The communist front group known as Black Lives Matter is little more than an un-American subversive group that wants to destroy America from within. The idea that the police exist, not to protect and serve citizens, but to hunt down and kill people of color is a vicious and absurd lie. Most police shootings involve criminal activity or active resistance to arrest.

We are so screwed.

GANNETT NEWSPAPERS: AFRAID OF THE TRUTH

gannett-fillmore

It appears that the days of protecting courageous political cartoonists who dared to speak the truth or poke fun at the establishment are over, at least at the McLean, Virginia-based Gannett newspapers…

Bruce Tinsley, creator of the 27-year-old conservative-leaning cartoon “Mallard Fillmore,” reports that his syndicator, King Features, notified him that Gannett newspapers across the country simultaneously dropped the comic over two strips critical of President Biden and transgender participation in women’s sports.

It is believed that two cartoons prompted the decision…

According to published reports, one strip was released on February 19, 2021, and shows Biden thinking: “For too long, segregation sullied women’s sports … They were restricted to women! Thank goodness those dark days are over.” The other strip was released on February 20, 2021, and, again, it’s Biden saying, “I hear what you, the American people, want me to do … kill fossil-fuel jobs … devalue Americans’ labor … and help more transgender athletes beat the *@!# out of biological females.”

It is not unusual for an editor or a single media outlet to drop specific cartoons or discontinue a strip. Still, it is unprecedented for an entire strip to be dropped nationwide by corporate dictates without warning and reason. However, in today’s malignant atmosphere of “cancel culture,” such actions appear to be politically-based and nefarious.

When do the progressive socialist democrats turn their backs on free speech, academic freedom, and civil rights? Apparently, when they reach a level of power that controls the majority of the government, institutions, and culture, they no longer need to make an artificial display of respecting the United States Constitution and valuing the rights of individuals who live outside their collective governance.

The Gannett Company owns over 100 daily newspapers and nearly 1,000 weekly newspapers, including many prestigious titles such as USA Today, Arizona Free Republic, Detroit Free Press, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Indianapolis Star, etc. Who actually is pulling strings is murky.”On August 5, 2019, New Media Investment Group, parent of GateHouse Media, announced that it would acquire Gannett. New Media Investment Group is in turn owned by another private equity firm, Fortress Investment Group. Fortress is owned by the Japanese conglomerate Softbank.

My favorite strip was declared to be anti-Semitic “hate speech” by the San Diego Union-Tribune…

mallard-fillmore-1

The decision is based on the Aug. 12 strip. In that strip artist Bruce Tinsley depicted Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar. Emailers and callers said the strip was anti-Semitic and dangerous given the recent violence directed at Jews, including the shooting at the Poway synagogue. (Readers can Google “Mallard Fillmore Aug. 12” if they wish to see it.)

“We don’t want hate speech in the Union-Tribune,” said Editor and Publisher Jeff Light. “Here’s a definition: Targeting people, particularly marginalized people, based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, race, color or sexual orientation. The ‘Mallard Fillmore’ strip was a blatant violation. <Source>

What makes this funny, or I should say ironic, is that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar is openly an anti-Semite, hates Israel, appears to have married her brother in an immigration scheme, apparently carried on a bigamous relationship, has transferred a large portion of her campaign funds to her boyfriend/husband – and yet retains her seat in Congress where she denigrates America. Perhaps the Editor and Publisher, Jeff Light, is virtue-signaling; perhaps he believes his audience is so ignorant and unknowledgeable to place the strip in context, or, most likely, a few letters and calls spooked him. It is easier to disappear the strip than deal with a little outrage.

More truth from Michael Ramirez...

Mrz030321-color-1mb_origBottom line…

I have always believed that “many a truth is spoken in jest” and that cartoonists are among the bravest people on Earth as they call our attention to irony, absurdity and are unafraid to speak truth to power. When cartoonists are censored or canceled, we have broken the mirror that provides for self-examination and self-correction.

We are so screwed.

THE TECH TYRANTS WANT A SURVEILLANCE STATE

BLUE-eye

People are identified by a unique SSN (Social Security Number) code, products are identified by a unique UPC (Universal Product Code) code, books are identified by ISBN (International Standard Book Number) code, vehicles have VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) code, and electronic devices and files have GUID (Globally Unique IDentifier) codes. All serve to identify, inform, and track individuals and goods.

Where have you been?

For several years, the Walt Disney Company and other content creators have been obsessed with protecting their intellectual property, especially since digital copies are virtually identical to the original, and digital goods like photographs, audio, and video can be reproduced cheaply by commonly available devices with no loss of fidelity.

In their zeal to enforce copyright, trademark, and patent laws, they have lobbied year-after-year for stronger-and-stronger protective legislation. Changing the responsibility for investigation and civil litigation against infringers from the content creator to the federal criminalization of infringement -- to be investigated and prosecuted with the unlimited resources of the federal government. And the embedding of an identifier known as a GUID (Globally Unique IDentifier) that allows content to be tracked to a device, and often to the individual using that device.

So why should we be surprised when we see an Orwellian story that is attempting to turn the United States into a surveillance state like Communist China with their social scoring system?

Technology and media entities join forces to create standards group aimed at building trust in online content

Adobe, Arm, BBC, Intel, Microsoft and Truepic form coalition to develop end-to-end, open standard for tracing the origin and evolution of digital content

A group of influential technology and media companies has partnered to form the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA), a Joint Development Foundation project established to address the prevalence of disinformation, misinformation and online content fraud through developing technical standards for certifying the source and history or provenance of media content

[OCS: This is absolutely un-American, un-Constitutional, and evokes Orwellian images of a government “Ministry of Truth” where the meaning of words are defined, and official narratives are concocted.

Disinformation or DISSIDENT information?

Even worse, because these large companies do significant business with the government and are the recipient of contracts, grants, tax allowances, and special regulations, they are extremely susceptible to government coercion and often act as de facto agents of the government without the restrictions incumbent on the government.

And, if you think that it can’t get worse, consider that these actions could be deadly for individuals and family members tracked by agents of hostile foreign powers looking for dissidents or those who produce embarrassing content. There is little doubt in my mind that each of the large companies mentioned has been infiltrated by foreign agents, and those who hold the “encryption keys to the kingdom” are susceptible to being compromised with threats, money, and sex.

What is not being mentioned is the need for a massive data warehouse to store the data, much like the secret billion-dollar NSA facility located in Utah used to collect and store all forms of electronic communications. Permitting government agents to mine the archives in search of data that can be cobbled together to form a damaging narrative of illegal activity. Alternatively, using documents can be authenticated and tracked using blockchain technologies.]

Founding members Adobe, Arm, BBC, Intel, Microsoft and Truepic seek to establish a standardized provenance solution with the goal of combating misleading content.

[OCS; This is the end of free speech and a chill on all opinions communicated using electronic devices.]

C2PA member organizations will work together to develop content provenance specifications for common asset types and formats to enable publishers, creators and consumers to trace the origin and evolution of a piece of media, including images, videos, audio and documents. These technical specifications will include defining what information is associated with each type of asset, how that information is presented and stored, and how evidence of tampering can be identified.

[OCS: This is already being done, even printers use a dot-code that can link documents to their source.]

The C2PA’s open standard will give platforms a method to preserve and read provenance-based digital content. Because an open standard can be adopted by any online platform, it is critical to scaling trust across the internet. In addition to the inclusion of varied media types at scale, C2PA is driving an end-to-end provenance experience from the capturing device to the information consumer. Collaboration with chipmakers, news organizations, and software and platform companies is critical to facilitate a comprehensive provenance standard and drive broad adoption across the content ecosystem. <Source>

[OCS: This would turn neutral platforms into detection and reporting entities that would empower governments and other evildoers. Chipmakers? Do you mean the people who design cheat codes and backdoors into their electronics? For “diagnostic purposes, of course.

As for trusted sources of information, do you mean like the New York Times, NBC, MSNBC, and other sources who routinely lie to you?] 

If you think Microsoft is not doing this now, consider that every Microsoft operating system, component product, and application program uses GUIDs embedded in the files you produce. Even Microsoft’s Azure platform has this capability.

Commercial marketplace partner and customer usage attribution

Customer usage attribution is a method to associate Azure resources running in customer subscriptions, deployed to run your solution, with you as a partner. Forming these associations in internal Microsoft systems brings greater visibility to the Azure footprint running your software. When you adopt this tracking capability, you align with Microsoft sales teams and gain credit for Microsoft partner programs.

Create GUIDs

A GUID is a unique reference identifier that has 32 hexadecimal digits. To create GUIDs for tracking, you should use a GUID generator, for example via PowerShell.

Register GUIDs

The GUIDs must be registered in Partner Center to enable customer usage attribution.

After you add a GUID to your template or in the user agent, and register the GUID in Partner Center, future deployments are tracked.

<Source>

Bottom line…

We have definitive proof, bolstered with sworn testimony and subpoenaed documentary evidence, that our nation’s premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been politically captured and compromised. Even worse, we find that our secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which was designed to protect individuals in the one-sided hearing, was not only compromised, but the court refused to hold an evidentiary hearing and hold those responsible for perpetrating a fraud on the court – and the American public – accountable for their actions.

To say we are rapidly approaching a surveillance state is an understatement. In many respects, we are there now. This current initiative is meant to protect private companies currently spying on you – and sometimes providing the information to the government.

Goodbye, privacy. Goodbye, freedom. And you thought you owned your computer? We are so screwed.

PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT CHILD ABUSE ON DISPLAY FOR ALL TO SEE

In the socialist utopia, a land of unicorns and self-licking lollipops, the progressive socialist democrats are turning America upside down.

CHILD-ABUSE

(Picture Source: Washington State Department of Health: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.)

Where Martin Luther King, Jr. was about children not being judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character, we find the democrats subverting the American ideal and telling children it is all about color. And, if you happen to be white, you are an awful person, a racist, and need to bow down before people of color and confess the sins of your race and atone for the misdeeds of your forefathers.

Nary a word that slavery, segregation, and bigotry pre-dates America's founding and existed primarily in cultures of color. Or that the Democrats were most associated with slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and led the anti-civil rights movement.

In the Orwellian world of progressives, where up is down, left is right, and evil is good, you have racists telling us we need to be “anti-racist” – as if that were a thing not invented by self-serving race-baiters and race-hustlers like Ibram X. Kendi and others capitalizing on progressive insanity.

What the hell are we doing to our children when the Cartoon Network runs a “woke Anti-Racist” Public Service Announcement that tells American children to “See Color?”

You can view the despicable children’s commercial here before it is censored by the tech tyrants.

See Color | The Crystal Gems Say Be Anti-Racist | Cartoon Network

It's important to SEE people in all their beautiful COLORS. When you see color and the unique experiences that come from it, you can recognize the role racism plays in our culture AND appreciate everyone and their diversity.

Consider cartoon characters portraying a white child, a black child, and a purple alien, dancing a circle and celebrating “colorblindness.” <Source>


All: “Colorblindness is our game because everyone’s the same. Everybody join our circle, doesn’t matter if you're white, black, or purple.”

When the purple alien suddenly changes its mind… “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. Hold it a minute here."

Alien: “ Ugh, who wrote this? I think it kinda does matter that I’m purple. I mean, I’m purple because I’m literally an alien.”

Black Child: “Well, I’m not an alien, but it definitely matters to me that I’m black.”

White Child: “Yeah, it makes a difference that I’m white. I know the two of us get treated very differently.”

Alien: “I just think it’s messed up to compare me being an alien to you two being different races. Your both human. You're totally biologically the same Adding purple people into a lesson about human racism makes no sense.

Both Children: “Yeah. That’s pretty weird.

White Child: “I think people like the black, white, or purple thing because adding a fantasy race in there helps distract from the actual racism black people have to deal with.”

Black Child: “Right. My experience with anti-black racism is really specific. Other people of color experience other forms of racism, too. But you won’t see any of that if you don’t see color.’”

Purple Alien: “This entire public service announcement could be a ploy to avoid talking about racism altogether. Hey, could we get a re-write where we appreciate each other without erasing what makes each of us different?

White Director: “Okay, but it’s going to add a couple hours to the shoot.”

[OCS: Whoops. An error in messaging – the director, the authority person, is white, while the camera is manned by an overweight woman, and the sound person appears to be black.]

The children chatter.

Purple Alien: “Ah, you’re rolling just now, weren’t you? Can we just slap some credits on this and call it a day?”

CARD: “SEE COLOR. BE ANTI-RACIST!

This is not a public service announcement; this is progressive propaganda designed to divide and ultimately destroy American values, ignoring human nature to perfect imperfect individuals.

Fast forward…

What is the psychological impact of repetitively telling an entire race they are bad and responsible for the ills of the world? What do you think will happen when white children and Asian children grow older and find that they were denied educational and employment opportunities because they were white or Asian? What happens when all adults find out that they are unable to compete in the modern world because progressive teachers reduced everything to the lowest common denominator and concentrated on trying to elevate the lowest achievers while ignoring or punishing the highest achievers in order to achieve "equity?" Knowing it is far easier to knock-down the few at the top rather than elevate the masses.

Boston Halts Advanced Learning Program Because Too Many Asian, White Students

Boston Public Schools are halting a selective program for high-performing kids in grades four through six because of a lack of racial equality in the makeup of the student population, local media have reported.

The decision to pause the AWC is based on a district analysis of the program, which found that more than 70 percent of the students enrolled were Asian or white. By contrast, a Massachusetts state analysis of the BPS suggests that out of the district’s 48,000 students in the school year 2020-21, 42 percent are Hispanic, 29 percent are black, 15 percent are white, and only 9 percent are Asian. 

Similarly, New York City last month replaced the admission test to its Gifted and Talented program with a lottery, as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s effort to ease what he considers is a problem of racial disparity. <Source>

Placing unqualified children in advanced programs is a recipe for failure, anger, and disciplinary issues. 

More division and more racism. But, of course, that’s the goal of the progressive socialist democrats who want to bring about a revolution to destroy everything and rebuild their mythical utopia. Why not ask France how their revolution worked out? Or the revolutions in Russia, China, Cuba, Venezuela, and other places this idiocy has been tried.

Are you paying attention?

If you are paying close attention, you will see that the progressive socialist democrats no longer speak of “equality,” they have moved on to equity – the deserved (not earned) equality of outcomes among unequal individuals and circumstances.

Bottom line…

Enough with the racist bullshit propaganda from the un-American progressive socialist Democrats. The GOP may not be perfect, but they certainly are not at the root of radically transforming America into a European-style communist society. We are all Americans and should resist being brainwashed by the disaffected, the disgruntled, and the elites who believe they have the moral superiority and wisdom that conveys the right to rule over us.

We are so screwed.

JOHN BRENNAN ASHAMED TO BE A WHITE MALE?

John Brennan, the Prince of Darkness, is a Professional Liar…

brennan

Responding to a comment by former Senator Claire McCaskill's observation about CPAC on Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, former CIA Director John Brennan claims, "I'm increasingly embarrassed to be a white male."

If the video appears to be missing, it can be found here unless it is being censored by the tech tyrants.

[OCS: Still trying to turn ALL Trump supporters into insurrectionists or buffoons, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace questioned former Senator Claire McCaskill "why CPAC attendees were so adamant about rewriting history about the Capitol insurrection on January 6th."]

McCaskill: “Because they want to be the victims, not the perpetrators. I have never seen so many whiny white men calling themselves victims as I saw over the weekend at CPAC. These are all people that think they have a huge grievance from a position of significant privilege.”

Brennan: “To Claire’s point, I’m increasingly embarrassed to be a white male these days with what I see other white males say.

“With very few exceptions, like Mitt Romney,  Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, there are so few Republicans in Congress who value truth, honesty, and integrity. So they’ll continue to gaslight the country the way Donald Trump did. The fact this has such security and safety implications for the American public and for the members of Congress, again, as Claire said, it is just a disgusting display of craven politics that should have no place in the United States in 2021.”

Johnny, aren’t you lucky that your party of progressive socialist democrats have made it so easy to click your heels and self-declare yourself to be a woman, self-declare yourself to be a minority, be it black or an American Indian, and, even better, demand the rest of the American population, under the force of law, support your self-delusion?

After serving as former President Obama’s Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from March 2013 to January 2017, and responsible for foreign intelligence operations leading to the Trump-Russia collusion hoax and the “pee-pee” claim, how can you possibly speak about “truth, honesty, and integrity?”

Gaslighting the country appears to be your modus operandi and is indicative of a pattern and practice of deception throughout your career.

As for a “disgusting display of craven politics,” aren’t you projecting the behavior of the progressive socialist democrats onto others, especially the opposition GOP?

The fact that you call out Mitt Romney,  Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger and claim they value “truth, honesty, and integrity” is to highlight their continuing dishonesty and discerption.

Bottom line…

If there were such a thing as justice in today’s world of politics, you would have been investigated, indicted, tried, and serving a prison sentence next to Hillary Clinton and her cadre of communists.

We are so screwed.

THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSE IF MINNEAPOLIS DOES NOT CONTROL RIOTERS, LOOTERS, AND ARSONISTS

UPDATE: The Minnesota Judicial Branch has set up a public web page for all court proceedings, procedures, and documents.

Minn

Monday, March 8, 2021, appears to be a red-letter day for the City of Minneapolis and the rule of law…

Minneapolis Police Office Derek Chauvin goes on trial for murder in the death of George Floyd. The charges facing Chauvin will be second-degree unintentional murder and second-degree manslaughter. Of course, the actual trial will start much later after all of the challenges, preliminary motions, and jury selection. A costly affair that will see the need for budget-busting manpower in the month or so needed for the trial and any response protests.

Question 1: What did George Floyd actually die from?

Considering the physical evidence produced in an autopsy report, there was no indication of strangulation or asphyxiation. However, a drug-screen produced evidence that Floyd consumed a dose of Fentanyl that would be considered lethal under less dramatic circumstances. If Floyd had died at home, it might have been ruled an accidental overdose. Floyd’s behavior on the fateful day was consistent with “excited delirium.” Floyd also exhibited the classic symptoms of a fentanyl overdose, complaining repeatedly of an inability to breathe and foaming at the mouth. Depending on the angle of captured video, it may be Officer Chauvin was using a police-approved tactic of leaning on Floyd’s shoulder not his neck. The “truth” is, you cannot always rely on appearances in video records.

Question 2: Can Derek Chauvin get a fair trial given the actions of self-serving politicians, prosecutors, and a jury mindful of their personal safety and the possibility of another riot that endangers individuals and causes the destruction of public and private property? Or will the politicians and prosecutors play to the mob and the media? Certainly, the optics and commentary were horrible, but did the restraint of Floyd equate to murder.

Question 3: Given the lead-time for the trial, will city officials be prepared to uphold law and order? Or will they order the law enforcement authorities to stand down or restrict the actions of any National Guard soldiers who may be present? What are the rules of engagement in the face of improvised weapons, chemicals like bear spray, fire accelerants, and explosives like fireworks? It appears that the City is preparing for attack with concrete barriers, boarded-up windows, barbed wire, and a force of 2,000 National Guard troops with another 1,100 out-of-state police officers to keep the peace.

Question 4: Has the City employed intelligence sources to identify individuals as trained agitators or provocateurs?

Question 5: Will the City impose and enforce a curfew. Preparing secure holding areas for mass arrests if necessary? 

Question 6: Will the media moguls and social media tech tyrants withhold or distort, or alter the news – censoring or canceling the accounts of individuals who may communicate their opinions and beliefs?

Question 7: Will the Biden Justice Department take action against Chauvin with a politically-motivated civil rights prosecution if he is acquitted or gets a token sentence?

The prosecutor is a known Marxist and radical black activist…

You cannot find a worse prosecutor than the politically-motivated, self-serving Keith Ellison, the Minnesota Attorney General who will be the lead prosecutor and who had already made prejudicial statements to the public when he called the prosecution “a positive step forward in the path toward justice for George Floyd, his family, our community, and Minnesota." The correct statement should have been that the justice system was seeking justice for all parties concerned. Ellison, aka Hakim Muhammed and Hakim Muhammed, is an un-American, anti-white, anti-police, radical communist associated with the racist, anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam, a large, militant, left-wing black separatist group that flies under the media radar.

The Wikipedia treatment…

“The 2020–2021 Minneapolis–Saint Paul racial justice protests are a wave of local civil unrest, comprising peaceful demonstrations and riots, against systemic racism towards black Americans, notably in the form of police violence. The Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area in U.S. state of Minnesota experienced prolonged unrest in 2020 and 2021 largely as a cultural reckoning on topics of racial injustice. A number of events occurred beginning soon after the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, by a white Minneapolis police officer on May 25. The vast majority of protests over Floyd's death were characterized as peaceful events, however, Minneapolis–Saint Paul experienced widespread rioting, looting, and property destruction over a three-night period in late May that resulted in $500 million in property damage—the second most destructive period of unrest in United States history, after the 1992 Los Angeles riots.” <Source>

Influencers?

It appears that the City of Minneapolis is shoveling money into so-called social media and community “influencers” to combat “misinformation.”  What misinformation? Do you mean the narrative of the progressive socialist democrats? Do you mean the narrative of the so-called “black community?” Or the distracting and disruptive narrative that misdirects people from concentrating on the “ provable facts” surrounding George Floyd’s death and the tremendous undeserved attack on the law enforcement community? The truth is that these “influencers” are little more than paid, self-serving propagandists and agitators who align with the progressive socialist democrat agenda. And that includes the various religious leaders who are more about media attention, fundraising, and political power than truth and justice.

Bottom line…

There is no winner; in this case, everybody, including the city, loses. No matter the outcome, Chauvin’s life has been altered forever, and he will face security threats to himself and his family for years to come.

To tell the truth, I believe this is little more than a political show trial conducted by progressive socialist democrats to court favor with their minority base and to advance a Marxist agenda.

LESSONS FROM THE 2021 CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference)

Aside from its carnival “see and be seen” atmosphere, there is little I learned from CPAC…

cpac-2021

Ain’t it the truth…

“Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any President in modern history, that’s true. Already the Biden administration has proved that they are anti-jobs, anti-family anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women, and anti-science. In just one short month we have gone from America first to America last. Think about it, right? America last. There is no better example than the new and horrible crisis on our Southern border. We did such a good job. It was all worked, nobody’s ever seen anything like we did and now he wants it all to go to hell. When I left office just six weeks ago, we had created the most secure border in U.S. history. We had built almost 500 miles of great border wall that helped us with these numbers because once it’s up, they used to say, ‘The wall doesn’t work’ Well you know what I’ve always said? Walls and wheels, those are two things that will never change.”  ~ Donald Trump at CPAC

Perhaps, we should commemorate the Biden Presidency with a redesign of the Presidential Seal?

PROOF POSITIVE THAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS ARE CORRUPT CRAZYMAKERS

uncle-sam-gun-head-blue-border

There is no doubt in my mind that the progressive socialist democrats are following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to create enough chaos and confusion to disrupt and eventually destroy our present political system in the United States.

Consider the political strategy outlined in Alinsky Rule #4, “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

With all the current emphasis on disarming the law-abiding system with onerous gun controls, releasing criminals back into the community, and the implementation of restorative justice, which places the perpetrator on a par with their victim by claiming the perpetrator is also a “victim of a broke and failing systemically racist system,” what sense does it make to fight for criminal’s rights to own and possess a firearm?

Statement by Joe Biden Three Years After the Parkland Shooting

This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer. Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets. We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now. <Source>

Yet, here we find George Gascón, the George Soros-backed radical communist District Attorney of Los Angeles County and formerly the District Attorney of San Francisco, championing criminal's rights.

Los Angeles DA George Gascón Defends Law That Puts Guns in the Hands of Criminals

Assembly Bill 3234, by Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), which was passed last year by the California Legislature after being gutted and amended, created a diversion program allowing criminals to continue to own or possess guns.

“Meanwhile, gun violence in Los Angeles is soaring. Murders in Los Angeles County are up 136.4% and shootings are up 261.5%. Attacks on police officers are up 300% from January 1 through January 18, 2021 when compared to the same time period in 2020. The chance of becoming a victim of any firearm crime (violent or property) in Los Angeles is now 1 in 33.” <Source>

From the FACT SHEET: AB 3234 makes most misdemeanor crimes eligible for dismissal—eliminating firearm prohibitions. Assembly Bill 3234 excludes only a few misdemeanor crimes from potential diversion. (Crimes requiring registration under Penal Code 290, 273.5, 646.9, and 243(e)(1).) This law would make all these misdemeanor crimes diversion eligible, and therefore there would be no firearm prohibition regardless of the conduct leading to an arrest.

 An open secret…

Many gun-related crimes, which should be treated as serious felonies with an enhancement for the possession or use of a firearm, are never charged, or the more serious aspects of the felony are plea-bargained down to a misdemeanor. According to the text of the legislation,

“This bill would authorize a judge in the superior court in which a misdemeanor is being prosecuted to offer misdemeanor diversion to a defendant over the objection of a prosecuting attorney, except as specified. The bill would authorize the judge to continue a diverted case for a period not to exceed 24 months and order the defendant to comply with the terms, conditions, and programs the judge deems appropriate based on the defendant’s specific situation. The bill would require the judge, at the end of the diversion period and if the defendant complies with all required terms, conditions, and programs, to dismiss the action against the defendant, and would deem the arrest upon which diversion was imposed to have never occurred, as specified. The bill would authorize the court to end the diversion and order resumption of the criminal proceedings if the court finds that the defendant is not complying with the terms and conditions of diversion.<Source>

Thus, a criminal not only has no prior offenses that would mandate more serious charges, but they are also still able to own and possess firearms.

In the words of Joe Biden, “A Bad Dude”…

George Gascón: A Rogue Prosecutor Whose Extreme Policies Undermine the Rule of Law and Make Los Angeles Less Safe

George Gascón, the Soros-backed former District Attorney of San Francisco, is now the District Attorney for Los Angeles County. He has, in mere weeks, put into place radical pro-criminal and anti-prosecution policies and is, in a twisted way, the gold standard for rogue prosecutors. The impact of his reckless and dangerous policies is just starting to be felt—and will come into full bloom in the months and years ahead.

Gascón’s Special Directives and Their Impact

Gascón’s policies, issued in a series of Special Directives, which all prosecutors in the office are required to read and know and which have been incorporated into the office’s Legal Policies Manual, are nothing short of nuclear explosions aimed at his own office and prosecutors, undercutting and undermining them in the performance of their duties. Written by or with the assistance of his “transition team” or “public policy advisors”—virtually all of whom are criminal defense attorneys or radical pro-criminal activists—these policies benefit murderers, cop killers, child and adult rapists, career felons, and other dangerous criminals. None of his policies benefits victims of crime.

While this might sound hyperbolic, unfortunately, it is not. Gascón is a rogue among rogues.

Unlike all the other elected rogue prosecutors, Gascón’s policies apply not only to future cases, but also to all ongoing and even past cases. Let that sink in. And once it does, it becomes obvious that the cumulative effect of Gascón’s radical new policies is to eviscerate the ability of the District Attorney’s office to protect the public, to defang the enforcement of criminal law in Los Angeles County, to let many criminals (including violent ones), go free—and even to unwind many past convictions. If the goal of a prosecutor is to seek justice, Gascón certainly has a perverted sense of it. <Source>

Among other things, Gascón is opening old police cases and placing previously-cleared officers in renewed jeopardy for the pleasure of the mob.

Newly elected Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon has selected a deadly 2015 police shooting in Long Beach as one of four cases he plans to reopen, the Long Beach Post reported Thursday.

The shooting occurred April 23 when Officer Jeffrey A. Meyer shot 19-year-old Hector Morejon while responding to a report of trespassing and vandalism at a vacant apartment unit in the 1100 block of Hoffman Avenue, which is in the Cambodia Town area of Long Beach.

Police said at the time Meyer fired his weapon when he saw Morejon turn around and extend his arm outward as if pointing a firearm. Morejon died later at a hospital, police said. No weapon was recovered. <Source>

I remember this case; the optics are horrible; the victim appeared drunk out of his mind and unable to respond to police officers hidden from view. The shooting occurred when the victim turned toward the police holding a while “holding a pistol-grip water hose nozzle” for some unknown reason. There were numerous procedural failures, but none rise to the level of re-opening the case. The City of Long Beach settled the civil suit for $1.5 million.

Bottom line…

To all the progressive socialist democrat idiots: it’s a crime control, not gun control. Guns do not decide to kill or injure individuals, any more than cars without drunk drivers  at the wheel represent a threat that demands automakers be responsible for drunk drivers.

We are so screwed. Let us hope the pendulum swings toward the middle once again.
