Emboldening goons by glorifying criminals as victims

Two LA County Sheriff deputies are fighting for their lives after a gunman shot both of them in an unprovoked attack.

To make matters worse, BLM protestors blocked the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling “We hope they die.”

These are the same people demanding their manifesto is the right path forward for America.

This sort of stupidity stems from:

Statistics obsessed sports stars who put feelings before facts and emblazon the names of criminals on their uniforms to paint them as heroes. Then the leagues who promote this woke activity wonder why audience numbers are plummeting.

Politicians like Kamala Harris who support groups which bail out criminals charged with rape, murder and assault.

BLM leaders who say that looting is just a form of reparation and that stores are insured anyway. An easy position to take when judiciaries led by district attorneys like Diana Becton require police to question whether looted items were necessary before pressing charges. Who doesn’t need a 75″ flat panel TV?

A media that dedicates days upon days reporting on “mostly peaceful protests” as cities burn while deliberately ignoring the murder of a 5yo kid shot in the head by a neighbor because it doesn’t fit a narrative.

Hollywood actors making woke videos to apologize for their white privilege and encouraging the defunding of police as they hide behind gates mansions guarded by armed rent-a-cops.

Day after day our newsfeeds are plastered with images of BLM protestors harassing law abiding citizens dining out. These mobs are descending on their neighborhoods in the middle of the night to yell profanities and threaten homeowners.

We have idiots attacking tea shop operators for not being black owned and attacking patrons for not supporting her madness.

A woman on a flight screamed “white privilege” at a cabin attendant just trying to do her job.

This is what the stench of identity politics delivers. No intelligent debate. Just glorification of people who commit rape, assault, battery, armed robbery, domestic violence, murder, deal drugs, resist arrest and hold guns to the bellies of pregnant women.

Perhaps this video of concerned citizens ‘physically’ restraining someone who attacked a cop is the perfect example of the true feelings of those who have had enough of false narratives perpetuated by the media which end up harming their communities way more in the long run.

As Tomas Sowell said, “Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole.”

Princeton study uncovers ugly truth about mostly peaceful protests

A Princeton University group studied 3 months worth of Black Lives Matter protests. The intent was to show they have been ‘overwhelmingly peaceful.’

Unfortunately, the report revealed that there were nearly 570 violent demonstrations, aka riots, in 220 locations spread all across country. Sure, riots may have been 10% of all recorded protests since the death of George Floyd but the negative impact – both economically and societally are quantum leaps bigger.

A must see 18 minutes – before it gets taken down

Kash Lee Kelly let’s rip over what he sees is happening in America. Nothing better than listening to unscripted, from the heart messages. We urge you to watch. Some profanity but a raw clip which resonates.

He touches on many of the points we have discussed in recent months and years. A complicit media desperate to stir up narratives regardless of the consequences as it is all for ratings.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Take it away, Kash Lee!

Rasmussen – GOP vs Dems re Police

Rasmussen Reports has put out a poll on how the presidential candidates identify on the side of the police. No real surprise at the results.

66% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Trump identifies more with the police in violent protests situations. Just 11% think he identifies more with the protesters, while 15% say he tries to be impartial…

…By contrast, 60% believe most national Democratic leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi identify more with the protesters in violent protest situations. Only 8% feel they identify more with the police. 23% think they try to be impartial…

…55% of voters think most reporters identify with the protesters in violent protest situations. Just 5% say most reporters identify more with the police, but 30% believe most try to be impartial…While 77% of Republicans and 54% of unaffiliateds think most reporters identify with the protesters in violent protests situations, only 37% of Democrats agree.

51% of voters believe government policies and practices encourage violent crime in some cities and states more than others. Just 24% disagree, while another 24% are undecided…But 66% of all Americans oppose reducing the police budget in the community where they live…61% believe violent crime will go up in communities that defund the police.”

George Floyd arrest body cam footage

Ben Shapiro breaks down the bodycam footage of George Floyd’s arrest which shows he was saying he couldn’t breathe from the beginning. Officers listened to his request to keep the windows down, to stay with him and showed no intent to murder him.

The end result is that Floyd still needlessly died while in the custody of Derek Chauvin who didn’t need to be on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Suffice to say Floyd’s autopsy revealed that he did not die of asphyxiation as was commonly claimed by the media.

We can imagine how rioting will reignite if Chauvin is acquitted of murder and charged with a lesser crime of aggravated assault.

The mainstream media will be only to glad to whip up misinformation for ratings as evidenced by the recent open letters from former staff at the NYT and MSNBC.

We are not at the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning. It looks like another case of an overeager DA looking to prosecute charges before seeing all the evidence. That’s the problem. Going for maximum sentences without knowing all of the facts means that over-promising and under-delivering becomes toxically incendiary.

Alienating the audience for good

At what point in the WNBA decision making process did these woke social justice warriors ever factor in how walking off the court before the national anthem was played may have alienated their ultimate paymasters – the crowd?

Watching sports used to be all about being a distraction from the grind of life. To zone out for several hours watching professional sports stats entertain. No thoughts about work, horrible bosses or financial pain. Just fun.

Now the politics in sport have become a bigger feature than the game itself. Perhaps these teams should back themselves in their ability to read the tolerance levels of their fans and require they wear BLM adorned clothing as a condition of entry.

We will have absolutely zero sympathy if these sporting codes collapse or find themselves in severe financial distress as a consequence of capitulating to this insidious ideology and biting the hand that feeds them.

Americans let Nancy Pelosi know what they think of her

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, never one to shy away from full-blown identity politics, said, “Americans across the country are calling for an end to racial injustice and police brutality. Tune in at 11 pm ET for my conversation with Congressional Black Caucus Chair Karen Bass and Soledad O’Brien.

Note she is also prepared to speak alongside BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist and the racist Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley who said, “we don’t need any black faces who don’t want to be a black voice.

We thought the comments on Nancy Pelosi’s Facebook invite were quite telling:

She is the cause

AMERICANS are calling for an end to the looting, the riots, the destruction to property, the loss of innocent lives, to the Democratic Party using the black community as pawns.”

“You are an embarrassing mess”

But what we are calling for is an end to people who hate this country!! We want to trade YOU for citizens of other countries who are thankful to live in a country where they love and YOU HATE! Let us help you pack!

Nancy, you and your minions sat by and watched Black-owned businesses being burned to the ground, Black-owned businesses looted and destroyed, and did nothing because allowing it to continue and keeping cities shut down to wreck the economy played into your evil plan. Now you want us to believe you care about Black lives? You are a joke.

“All lives matter!
Pelosi, you have guts and I admire you for that but the issue is whether Police Rules and regulations were wrong?
Yes, they were!
So, why blaming the police instead of those who had made those rules?
Police follow the rules, just like soldiers!
Why blaming Police officers for following the rules?
The rules were brutal!”

You said no to consideration to the Justice Act 3 weeks ago.
You refused to talk about it.
BLM Movement grabbed the corporate millions and ran with it.
Democrats ignored reform and change and went on vacation.

The BLM movement is a hate group, it’s the same thing as the KKK. They chose the name to make it seem racist if you don’t agree with them. This is called a Misnomer. It’s used the same as a loaded question, that many news anchors use, it’s used in a way that if you respond correctly, it gives the illusion you’re a bad person. It’s very deceitful, and wrong..
Cause yes black lives do matter along with white lives, brown lives, ALL LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well except pedophiles, screw them guys.

“We have watched the Democrat leaders kneel in the halls of Congress for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in honor of George Floyd, a black man killed at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen soldier.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands upon thousands of aborted babies.
I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white, black, Hispanic or Asian police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of black on black murder victims. 18 in 24 hours yesterday and 191 just in the first 5 months of 2020 all in Democrat-led Chicago.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in our nursing homes as a result of Coronavirus decisions enforced by Democrat governors.
I have never seen them kneel or even recognize the attacks or deaths at the hands of violent protesters and riots still taking place today.
I have never seen them kneel or recognize the utter devastation of already struggling businesses across the nation.
Of course, what happened to George Floyd should never happen again to anyone no matter their color and especially by police who are supposed to protect us.
But WHY are Democrat leaders and even the mainstream media completely ignoring these other deaths and destruction? Don’t they deserve to be honored too?

“continuing to stir up problems instead of fixing them…..😡

There is no racial injustice and police brutality is rare. Democrats are just trying to divide us.

Free market a far better manager of coronavirus than the political class

From The Straits Times Archives: Past 'mass hysteria' cases in ...

As states across America were coming to grips with ‘flattening the curve‘ of COVID-19 through punitive mandated lockdowns, who knew that coronavirus cases would surge after protestors assembled after the murder of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020?

New Cases

The same goes for the state of Victoria in Australia. While Premier Dan Andrews openly punished and heavily fined those who dared to play golf, sail or walk in a park, he turned a blind eye to public protests where little social distancing could be practised. Now he is reaping what he sowed. As much as we dislike the deeply socialist policies pushed by Andrews, the reaction is none-the-less absurd.

20.5% of all Victorians have been tested. 0.44% of those tested have returned positive to COVID19! That means 99.56% of those tested are fine. How does the media rationally look at the data? The headlines read “New Record Hit.” So what? Could it be that telling the public 99.56% of those tested are returning negative results won’t drive ad revenue? Best focus on the minuscule and blow it out of proportion.

Should we cynically view editors as expediently casting aside all the lessons on journalistic ethics and integrity in order to push clickbait that fits a narrative, regardless of who is affected?

Worse, politicians – who live in fear of the 24-7 news cycle – cower behind medical experts who have given nothing but wildly inaccurate forecasts to the detriment of the economy. Now that a ‘second wave’ is imminent, lawmakers are only too eager to double down on all of the mistakes made at the beginning.

When are we going to grow a collective pair and stand up to this nonsense? It is not hard to work out that the more we test, the more we detect.

Why aren’t politicians just making it clear that the pandemic will outlast the economy if we choose to let it? Why doesn’t the government conduct daily press briefings on suicide, motor vehicle accidents or the flu? In the US, twice as many people die each year from medical errors than have died so far from COVID. Where are the daily updates? Where are the media reporting these updates?

There is absolutely no attempt to be balanced. Of the 3.7 million confirmed COVID-19 cases, this is still around 6% of the 60 million who contracted H1N1 swine flu under the previous administration. Orange man bad. Let’s jettison context and perspective.

19 Jul COVID deaths

In the chart above we tally a list of COVID-19 deaths in Australia and the US by state.

NY has the highest number by a factor of two. Even though NY Gov Cuomo thinks he has been the most effective at handling the crisis. Never mind the number of deaths that resulted from his direct policy to put infected patients into nursing homes.

Pop Tested Corona

Let’s look at some more data – 13% of Americans have been tested as of July 20th. Of that, only 9% have tested positive to coronavirus. New York has tested a quarter of its residents and returned 8.5%.

Infection as % test

Yet death rates are far from scary in the US. New Jersey has the worst rate of 0.17683% deaths vs the state population. New York is marginally lower at 0.16549%. That means 99.8% of those living in these states haven’t died from it. In Hawaii, 99.998% haven’t succumbed.

Come to think of it, why haven’t the Australian mainstream media bashed Tasmania for having more deaths per head of population than Victoria? Where is the narrative shaming Taswegians?

deathsbtstate

The infections data in NY are at 2%. So 98% of people aren’t knowingly infected. 99% of South Dakotans aren’t infected either.

infect

We know we are well off finding a vaccine. So the more panic porn the media indulges in, the worse it will ultimately be for them too. They will be killing the golden goose. The economy can’t survive with well over half the workforce being subsidized by the government. Prudent risk management is the order of the day.

Politicians need to step up and push back. Reintroducing lockdown laws and pulling up the draw bridge at the border are kneejerk, one-size-fits-all approaches which only expose how hopelessly equipped the political class are at handling crises.

Premier Andrews has demanded that people must wear masks. He openly encouraged people to make their own if need be. Wear a tea cosy? Essentially what he is saying is that mask efficacy is utterly irrelevant. Only the gesture is required. So what is the point?

Perhaps we just need to reflect on our own behaviours. Sure most of us squirt some sanitizer if we see it and politely keep our distance by standing on dots stuck to the floor but it is dawning on many of us that the risk/reward ratio is getting ridiculous. Anyone with half a brain could see that BLM protests would cause a spike in cases.

Remember when people became panicked about flying after 9-11? It was only when cheap airfares were offered that the free market was able to coax travellers to risk their lives for $25 return to WhoopWhoop.

Therein lies the answer. The free market will be a far better manager of coronavirus than the political class. Let stores decide on mask policies or seating arrangements. If customers don’t show up they must innovate in ways to attract them. Necessity is the mother of invention, not incompetent elected officials telling us they know better. They simply don’t.

Powerful speech from Senator Tim Scott

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott slams the hypocritical Democrats for blocking the discussion on police reform, especially from the 4-minute mark. He correctly points out that the very legislation he is suggesting could have been introduced by the Democrat leadership in cities where many of the problems lie decades ago.

Isn’t it ironic that despite the Democrats being invited to suggest their own amendments to the proposed bill, the party that proudly tells Americans it deeply cares for minorities blocked a discussion on the very legislation designed to help them?

Who knew? Minneapolis Diversity vs Damaged Properties

Minny

Who knew that those areas most racially and ethnically diverse (shaded green) suffered the brunt of the damage done in the riots?

As PSO said, “If one were actively trying to reverse integration, one would have done precisely this.”

We are not very confident that the Minneapolis City Council has all the answers. At the very least, insurance companies will be able to make a stronger case in assessing risk management if they bother at all from hereon.
