    The lynch mob now turns on the police. Watch as more chaos and conflict will develop amid the growing witch-hunt hysteria, with police officers everywhere deciding it's just not worth it to continue to try to do their job.

    A new career in private security, probably much better paid and with much more anonymity, will be looking far more attractive to many.
    When did it become OK for police to shoot someone in the back who's running away? In all the discussion on TV about the Atlanta shooting, they show, but do not discuss, the fact that the suspect was fleeing and shot in the back by an angry cop.
    1. Brooks was fleeing with a taser, and had turned to discharge it at the cop (Rolfe).
    2. In Georgia law, a taser is a [potentially] deadly weapon. (And especially so in untrained hands.)
    3. How do you know Rolfe was "angry"? That seems like an emotional assumption on your part.
    I'd strongly suggest that the heavy charges pressed on Rolfe were to appease the mob. He's being sacrificed (temporarily) to try to deter further riots. But the charges are likely to be dismissed in court — and then all hell will break loose again.
    1) he was fleeing and was shot in the back
    2) he was not pointing the taser at anyone when shot. They should have chased him down and told him to drop the taser
    3) I would be angry in that situation, and I infer from the fact he shot the guy in the back rather than doing #2 above, that he was angry
    I wouldn't be angry I would be scared and ashamed and desperate to get my tazer back,he is shooting my own tazer at me after all.if he hits me what next,a casual stroll over and pick my gun up?

    State-Forming People: How Historical Justice Can be Restored With Just One Phrase

    By Arthur Evans
    By Guest Author On Jun 18, 2020


    Amid a public discussion going on in Russia about proposed constitutional amendments, minor changes to Article 68 (on language and culture) hardly raise any questions. However, added to the text of the revised Basic Law of the Land is a clause that explains why Russian is the state language of Russia, “the language of the state-forming people, a member of the multinational union of equal peoples of the Russian Federation.” The amendment thus recognizes the Russian people’s leading role in the creation and existence of Russia as a sovereign country.

    In Russia, people have often talked about the titular nation not being fully “equal” to the other ethnic groups living in the country. After the 1917 October Revolution, some Russian-speaking regions were handed over, against their will, to the newly formed national republics. The quotas set for local residents hampered the career growth of Russian-speakers in many of the country’s autonomies, straining to this very day relations between the Russian-speaking residents and the indigenous population in the newly-independent former Soviet republics. More often than not, all that ethnic Russians want is to be able to speak their native language, preserve it and granting it the status of at least the language of local self-government. In fact, it was the forced “Ukrainization” in the 100% Russian-speaking Crimea and Donbass that precipitated the tragic events that led to their exit from Ukraine. Small wonder, that Moscow takes the status of the Russian language so close to heart. Therefore, the recognition of the Russians as a “state-forming people” is a simple but very important acknowledgment of the historical fact that it was the Russian people who united the vast territory stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea, and peacefully coexisted with members of all the other ethnic groups inhabiting it without infringing their rights.

    Therefore, the proposed amendment is only fair and, what is most important, it is seen by Russian-speakers as indispensable. Well, some could call this nationalism, but given the need to support the country’s small peoples and their cultural heritage, one can hardly blame the amendment’s authors of harboring any chauvinistic intentions. And with pretty good reason too, since Russians, for the most part, are not nationalists, just the opposite. Suffice it to mention the names of Barclay de Tolly, Bagration, Benckendorf, Totleben, Rokossovsky – all these heroes and commanders in the Russian service are held by the Russians as their own. Most Russians will be surprised if told that de Tolly, the founding father of Russian military intelligence, or the engineer Totleben, were both Scots.
    “Wait a minute,” they would say, “these guys spoke Russian, attended the Orthodox Church and served our country, which means they are Russian!”
    This means that there is no such thing as nationalism in Russia. What there is, however, is the Russian people’s healthy patriotism and innate pride in their ancestors.

    Thus, the new amendment finally gives the Russians credit for creating their own country and clearly explains why Russian is the state language of this country. Moscow was not afraid to enshrine in the constitution the language and history of Russia, primarily created by the Russian people, as the cornerstone of its national identity. By introducing into the constitution the concept of a state-forming nation, Moscow is essentially establishing its sovereign and legal constitutional norms. And again, the present constitution was written in 1993, not without the help of Western advisers, and many important state-forming provisions were simply missing from the text of the country’s Basic Law. Therefore, it is only natural for the new strong Russia to significantly amend its constitution, while the lawmakers often introduce subtle, albeit important changes to its text. The common history, as well as the single path of the country’s spiritual development, and the role of the Russian people are now enshrined in law, which means that the state ideology and the shared values ​​of all Russians have now been formulated and included in the country’s Basic Law.

    My take away was that MADD is to blame for this person's death for their zealous and fanatic demonization of all drivers under the influence. They do not go after the drinking culture, of course, because that is the root cause but more importantly, a lost cause. So instead they attack the product of our poor choices, choices encouraged by society, and criminalize sleeping it off in your parked car.

    The cops should have anticipated the guy's move, as they are trained to do. But since they screwed that up, the guy resisted arrest, fought two cops to the ground, took a weapon from the cop, fired it at the cop, and tried to flee the scene. That's a no brainer.

    When #VaxLiesShatter There Will Be Criminal Indictments For Genocide
    18th June 2020
    The Bernician
    https://www.thebernician.net/when-va...-for-genocide/

    (A WEALTH OF INFORMATION HERE. EACH OF THE "RELATED POSTS" AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE LOOK LIKE THEY DESERVE A SEPARATE POST OF THEIR OWN--HYPERLINKS ARE PROVIDED )

    "Wondering why the Gates-funded UK government has reluctantly admitted that fines for alleged breaches of ‘social distancing laws’ cannot be legally enforced?

    Or why the government let the Soros-funded BLM protesters kick the **** out of the Metropolitan Police last weekend, even though they have legislated for a full-blown authoritarian Police State?

    Or why Johnson implicitly announced yesterday that there is an alternative ‘treatment’ to the unholy grail of a Gates-funded vaccine?

    The answer is the same to all three questions – everything the government has enacted since the Coronavirus Bill was passed last March has been unlawful.

    Dr Bonham’s Case
    Here lies a seminal Common Law precedent, which nullifies every action Parliament and the government have taken since the murderous lock-up began.

    In the 1610 decision of Thomas Bonham v College of Physicians 8 Co Rep 107a; 77 Eng Rep 638, commonly known as Dr. Bonham’s Case, in the Court of Common Pleas before Coke, the learned judge ruled that:

    “In many cases, the Common Law will control Acts of Parliament, and sometimes adjudge them to be utterly void: for when an Act of Parliament is against common right and reason, or repugnant, or impossible to be performed, the common law will control it and adjudge such an Act to be void.”

    Applicability To Lock-Down Laws
    This applies to all the Coronavirus Act 2020 and every one of the 90 statutory instruments which have since been decreed into lawlessness without Parliamentary scrutiny, for the following reasons:

    1. They purport to have suspended the common rights of freedom of assembly, freedom of movement and freedom of conscience, as well as the rights to justice and the protection of the law, Habeus Corpus, the presumption of innocence and a private family life.

    2. They fly in the face of reason because there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that the measures imposed have done anything except cause significant harm to the British people.

    3. They are repugnant on the ground that, far from fulfilling the repeatedly stated objective of “flattening the curve”, the Office of National Statistics data proves that the lock-up [not COVID-19] doubled the national mortality rate, rendering the actions of Parliament and the government both fraudulent and genocidal in nature.

    4. The measures imposed were and remain impossible to perform, on the simple basis that the Common Law forbids such actions to be taken under any circumstances.

    These actions represent clear and present ‘trespasses upon the person’, for intentional interference with the bodies and liberty of the British people, as per the rules set down by Dr Bonham’s case.

    The Common Law therefore adjudges the statute and the regulations which followed to be void ab initio, whilst Parliament automatically forfeited its legitimacy by attempting to suspend the rights guaranteed under Constitutional Law.

    Evidence To Indict
    In other words, we have enough evidence to indict the government [and every MP], since every action they have taken was and will always remain treasonously fraudulent and constitutionally unlawful.

    Is that why, if you listen very carefully, you can hear the slippery clenching of butt-cheeks every time the Secretary of State for Mandatory Vaccinations issues the daily propaganda briefing?

    Could it also be the reason why the government declared yesterday that Dexamethasone [a well established treatment for pulmonary altitude sickness] has proven in tests to be an effective treatment for ‘the deadly virus’?

    After all, there would be no greater trespass upon the person than Hancock’s threatened compulsory vaccination edict, which the government previously insisted was the only way out of lock-down.

    Murder By Vaccination
    However, he might also have been informed that the Secretary of State for Health in the Philippines has been indicted for crimes tantamount to the murder of children, who died after being vaccinated with Dengue Fever drug, Dengvaxia.

    Indicted to face criminal charges with them is a negligent researcher, as well as as former and current employees of the vax manufacturer, Sanofi – the company currently working with Glaxo-Smith Kline to rush a COVID-19 vaccine on to the market.

    https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019...er-philippines

    #VaxLiesShatter
    Nonetheless, once #VaxLiesShatter in the minds of enough people, it is the politicians, their so-called ‘scientific advisers’ and the financiers of the mandatory vaccination agenda who will be locked up, until they meet their fate at the end of their trials for crimes tantamount to genocide, under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

    So please share the #VaxLiesShatter material on every social media platform you give your attention to, until we reach the tipping point, at which people of all colours will realise that no lives [except their own] matter to the murderous eugenicists who pull the strings of the puppet politicians peddling their genocidal poison.

    the man in the video was making the argument that whatever exists today is much closer to a familiarity bias than a racial bias. racial bias suggests fear and hatred and deliberate intent to oppress and mistreat. whereas familiarity bias is a natural result of having grown up around certain types of people and not others, and feeling a more natural comfort level with those around you as a result

    Yes, that is close to what I was trying to say.

    The total U. S. population may be something like 42% white, but it it not an even distribution, and will be greater or less in a given area.

    For example, I have been working mostly with hispanics. They are immigrants. At every possible moment, they switch to Spanish and their culture, and I am out of place. Well, unlike most other languages, Spanish annoys me. At times I have heard a lot of French or Dutch or something, which isn't bothersome, but, to me, at least, the sound of Spanish is too staccato, and is irritating. That is aside from the fact it is suffused with homophobia, not exactly a "phobia" but a hatred.

    So at times I am a minority if not the only one of my kind, and, our workday is like a second home to them, but I cannot claim to be more than slightly familiar with it.


    Concerning the mechanisms of the potential takedown, it seems that the American Jesuit is a unique character, related to the tricky position of English Catholics. They had little to do with the early U. S.; their numbers increased during the westward expansion. They had little actual power until around the 20th century, at which point "dominant in education" is their motif--and they can be found as opposed to Woodrow Wilson's pro-British stance. They started a magazine, "America", thoroughly anti-communist and anti-Soviet, and very pro-America. So they are definitely in terms of the right or far right or conservatism/resistance to change.

    Something must have come together in the 1920s-1930s, which is when the plan or plot of Synarchy has moved from theory to "on the ground", holding offices, and the beginning of Alice Bailey. Jesuitry and Liberalism may have had opposing values, but, during this time, came together as one big steamroller.

    Phelps's rhetoric such as "Jesuits and their Knights of Malta" does not seem accurate since, in the Order of Malta Constitution, the knights' loyalty is to the pope; besides, they are much older than Jesuits. So, I am still unsure exactly what the knights, as a body, have supposedly done.

    But in reviewing the literature, Jesuitry is no longer anything like conquistadors converting populations by force. Instead, they are satisfied if an area shows any potential that it might tolerate any kind of Christianity. They consider that a foot in the door. So Alice Bailey, or other similar forms of "weakened Christianity" suits them just fine. If you want to continue tribal traditions and just say the Lord's Prayer on Tuesday, they would be happy with that. They will work their way in through the smallest crack.

    That is a pretty good match with these insurrections that set up Totalitarian Democracy.

    They learn to adapt and adjust realistically, which means Usury from the 1600s, and then world government from WWII.

    The political thing about...changing America...seems pretty consistently British; and this plays to the favor of that world government, which is not Jesuitical in its main appearances--they have just learned how to work with it to continue their existence.

    Preparedness Tip: Lugol’s Solution

    THE TYRANNY OF THE “GREAT RESET”

    We now face a dual threat. Whether they call it the “New Normal” or the “Great Reset,” the forces of global control are in the process of using these two mantras to dismantle Western society, culture, free markets and personal liberty. They are using well-placed medical dictators and radical leftists as front men, respectively, in both crises. It is ominous to watch how the “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) violence has diverted people from their growing outrage over the restrictions of the Covid 19 crisis. Leftist extremists are ecstatic that the media is now pushing their causes as mainstream, no matter how radical. The exaggerated pandemic is driving the “new normal” theme, never intending to allow personal or economic freedom again without a vaccine, and the BLM movement is driving the “great reset” trying to harness corporate funding of radical causes and force all city governments into a subservient role to the Left. I am shocked at how rapidly companies are pandering to any demand the media broadcasts on behalf of protestors. None showed any such support for protestors vying for liberty during the pandemic. It is clear to me that globalist conspirators are funding and directing the larger agenda meant to destabilize the economy and destroy personal liberty as people become accustomed to bowing to these dictates.

    Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics wrote this succinct summary of the Marxist agenda behind the Great Reset:



    The rising civil unrest is starting to take notice of Bill Gates and his consortium hell-bent on changing the world economy. They have used the coronavirus as a ploy to shut down the world economy all for their Climate Change Agenda. There is a mountain of circumstantial evidence that points to Fauci funding the creation of this virus and transferring it to the Wuhan lab..., but this consortium which has planned this Event 201 on how to destroy the world economy and rebuild it from scratch. They are already introducing Guaranteed Basic Income, assuming they can wipe out over 300 million jobs and then pay people to sit home and watch TV, where they recreate the world in their own image which they are promoting as the Great Reset.

    Mac Slavo posted this warning on the “Great Reset” and the “new normal” brewing:



    Make no mistake, this will be absolute tyranny on a global scale. The mainstream media is silent as the elitists who want power over every human on Earth plan to meet in a Swiss town to discuss “the Great Reset,” a push to a one-world currency [and government] – one in which they have ultimate control.



    The plan is to make sure a “post-COVID” world is built the way they want it. Slavery and totalitarian control. If you haven’t figured out now that the system was put there to protect them, not you, line up for the Bill Gates sponsored vaccine. Things are going to get much uglier, and quick. The objective of this meeting is the “rebuilding” of the world’s economic and social system in order to make it more “sustainable.”



    It sounds good, right? But, by more sustainable, they mean more enslaveable.



    “Nothing will ever be the same again.” It was the mantra that we heard in many countries at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It came with a warning that a “new normal” would replace the existing order. Easy travel, interpersonal relations, large gatherings, even things like shaking hands would have to give way to long-term social distancing, drastic rules, and surveillance. But these changes on the personal level are only a part of the picture. The World Economic Forum, together with Prince Charles of England and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has launched an initiative revealingly dubbed “The Great Reset,” with the objective of “rebuilding” the world’s economic and social system in order to make it more “sustainable.” –Life Site News



    The End Game Has Arrived: ‘All Signs and Evidence Point to the Great Global Economic Reset’



    It was already being talked about before the Chinese coronavirus was moving out of Wuhan. On December 30, 2019, for instance, the Financial Times published a YouTube presentation under the title “Why capitalism needs to be reset in 2020.” (As if any country has capitalism anymore. Most, and yes, even the United States, are now at the very least, corporatocracies – the merging of governments and corporations, masquerading as crony corporatism.) [True.]



    But the globalists are pushing a theme that capitalism (which means no interference in the market/economy) is the problem, even though literally everything is centralized. The recurring theme is “stakeholder capitalism,” by which “a company’s approach to people, the planet, and innovation — including how it protects and applies the value-added of its data — must figure more prominently in capital-allocation decisions” (as the WEForum site explains).

    Everywhere you look, you see media relations people in every large corporation pushing CEOs to jump on the PC bandwagon and support BLM, tear down confederate symbols, and pander to the LGBTQ movement.



    Prepare by refusing to accept their new one-world currency. Stock up on precious metals, gold, silver, and lead.



    If you cannot be bothered to understand that the best way to protect yourself is to remove yourself from the system of slavery that was already set up, that they are desperately trying to keep you in, then you’re going to likely get caught up in this mess.

    His last suggestion may be our only option going forward—getting out of the way, if possible, and escape or evade. People in big cities all over the nation have suddenly realized that they are the prime target for power-hungry bureaucrats looking to curtail liberties, and at the same time are the prime targets for violent protestors. Suddenly thousands have decided to get out of the big cities, or at least to prepare a second home or refuge elsewhere. Fox Business noted that there is currently a rush for the wealthy to buy second homes in posh ski resorts in the West: “Luxury real estate demand surges in Aspen, CO, and Park City, UT.”



    Coronavirus lockdowns created real estate bargains: Prices for luxury properties in ski towns like Aspen, Colorado, and Park City, Utah, are “through the roof,” according to Mauricio Umansky, founder and CEO of real estate firm The Agency. Demand in Aspen and Park City has surged and supply is low as the coronavirus pandemic has hastened the trend of the wealthy vacationing year-round in those winter enclaves.

    The bargain prices of housing caused by the slump in the housing market during the corona crisis didn’t last long, especially in these resort areas. But it hasn’t been only the wealthy looking to get out of big cities. Now that many businesses were forced to have employees work from home, a lot of regular people who do most of their work on a computer are now considering working from home permanently, and their bosses can’t say “it can’t be done.” As Fox said,



    “People have realized that you can work from home,” he said. “And the big question has become: where do you want to sequester with your family in the event that this ever happens again? And so I think people are looking for space and looking for areas where there’s a lot less density.”

    AS we say repeatedly in Strategic Relocation: population density is your biggest enemy in any crisis. Andrew and I have just sent the new, 4th edition, of Strategic Relocation to the printer (the 3rd Edition is out of print and only available as a PDF download), and we can’t get it out fast enough. I have been inundated with requests for the book from people who are “awake” and see the long term threat to our liberties—threats that always hit first in the big population centers. The book will be available in early July at www.joelskousen.com.

    This phony pandemic and the official pandering to the radical BLM movement (which isn’t about black lives or injustice) has made me realize how quickly things are deteriorating and caused me to accelerate a lot of my preparations. Many other people are also suddenly realizing that time is of the essence. Mostly it is scary seeing how many people just accepted these exaggerated fear tactics, heightening my fear at how easily people could be talked into any form of dictatorial control. It was also shocking to see how easily big city councils bought into the defund police movement, and voted to transfer funding to soft social services that do nothing to protect people and property. It is a disaster that will come back haunt big cities, and already is. Criminals will love it.

    In NY City, lack of police action has already resulted in a war of rival gangs launching illegal fireworks at each other. The city has received over 1,700 complaints about pyrotechnics in two weeks. In Minneapolis, where police are being defunded, crime is already rising with 8 people shot within a 2 hour period.

    As a result of the police stand-down, armed citizens are already starting to make a show of force to counter the refusal of police to confront protestors and looters. And, for those citizens not able to carry arms, as in Chicago or NY, citizens are patrolling the streets with baseball bats. Dozens of reports are coming in documenting how police just stand by and don’t interfere with looters, especially if they are African American. Fear of being accused of police brutality has paralyzed most police departments. Dana J. Armstrong of Columbus Ohio posted on social media a text they got from a policeman reporting stand-down orders:



    Officers who were dispatched and responded to the calls for service are being ordered to stand down. Please do not put yourself and your loved ones in harms way. If you find yourself as one of the drivers being blocked in, we cannot do anything to that person because the City is defining them as a peaceful protester. So even if we do respond, you’re on your own. The new executive orders we received yesterday have completely tied our hands of enforcing the law now. Thank the City of Columbus politically motivated administration for these stand down orders. [The City denied the anonymous officer’s statement, saying only tear gas was prohibited by police.]

    Police Chiefs all over the nation even in Republican cities are jumping on the bandwagon and renouncing tear gas, chokeholds, and even protective equipment. Some good policemen are resigning seeing they won’t be supported by either their chiefs, the union, or city councils.

    Libertarian Allan Stevo has compiled stories about the growing resistance around the country against the Coronavirus edicts—though it is still very small compared to the millions who are blindly following the establishment’s demands.



    The resistance to corona communism is thriving. Though there have been additional hurdles, individual Americans are increasingly returning things to normal, one person at a time. Some backlash is also coming as people increasingly look to the normally insulated public health community and demand they explain the damage they caused and continue to cause.



    Chicago PD Not Protecting, Guns Hard To Get, So Individuals Protect Themselves & Their Neighbors — With Baseball Bats



    Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who recently cussed out an alderman who complained about her inability to keep the city safe, criticized locals for wanting to keep themselves safe by forming neighborhood watch groups and open carrying baseball bats. Kudos to those who refuse to believe the narratives of local pols that they have everything under control.



    Some Chicagoans are protecting their property and their neighborhood from looters by openly carrying rifles, as can be seen in this amusing video taken by a hysterical observer who seems bothered to not be able to freely rob a local store. The video is taken on the southwest corner of south 73rd Place and Stony Island, across from Mosque Maryam, the Nation of Islam headquarters. For decades, legally owned firearms were difficult to come by in Chicago, unless one was a police officer or politician. [That is still true.]



    Victory in Palm Beach County! “The county commission voted 5-1 on May 5 to ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to lift restrictions designed to stop the spread of the new coronavirus anyway, and he approved. On Monday, restaurants, salons, and malls flung open their doors, albeit at 25% percent capacity.”



    The article neglects to mention that Sunday, May 3, two days before the county board vote, there were 1,200 boats in the water at a single event at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach County, filled with people not social distancing, Craigslist stayed as active as ever, and the so-called #FloridaMorons who never took the lockdown seriously were long past done with it.



    The Palm Beach County Board opened just in time to avoid being laughed into utter irrelevancy. The county board looked like nincompoops forcibly shuttering businesses while neighboring Martin County boomed and was open for business, attracting the people of Palm Beach who were ready for normalcy.

    Stevo rightly says that the “grand takeaway from this” is never move to a place run by bureaucrats. Live somewhere free from these kinds of spineless officials. They trouble is, as we point out in the new edition of Strategic Relocation, even most conservative states are increasingly run by mainstream Republican governors that were almost as bad as the radical Democratic governors because everyone was following the leader.

    Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota was the only governor who refused to shut down her economy, and for this reason, SD was the only state to receive a higher rating in our 4th edition. All others were downgraded, some dramatically, like Colorado after its turn to the radical Left. California couldn’t get any lower than zero unless we start having negative ratings—which we may have to in the future. Stevo now mentions some group conferences that are going ahead despite stupid social distancing rules:



    Bravely Reopening — Support These Conferences That Don’t Fear Corona:



    Though it’s not clear how long the hysterical 18-month rolling lockdowns called for in the Neil Ferguson “research” will continue, a few conferences have been announced for the months ahead. Instead of following the conference trend of taking the year off, they are showing leadership. I, for one, am grateful.



    Moderately Brave — Money 2020: Money 2020 has announced it will take place in Las Vegas, in October with a “toned down” 6,000 participants.



    More Brave — Bit Block Boom: With some states unwilling to promise they will even fully open up by August, the brave organizers of Bit Block Boom vow to have their third conference this August in Dallas, Texas.

    Stevo missed mentioning the biggest of all the conservative-libertarian conferences: my brother Mark’s annual Freedom Fest, which he is hoping will officially break open the restrictions on conferences in Las Vegas on July 13-16. He was the first to get the Las Vegas venues to agree to let him hold a convention after this “pandemic,” and is scheduled to hold it at Ceasar’s Palace. Mark always has a fascinating list of speakers, including Senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul, Steve Forbes, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Peter Schiff, Rep. Bob Barr, Prof. Randy Barnett (Georgetown Law), Tom Woods (Mises Institute), and Stephen Moore (Heritage Foundation), plus dozens more.

    Stevo also mentioned how public protests at the homes of these dictatorial health officials caused some of them to resign:



    After instituting corona communism in Orange County, California, America’s 6th most populous county, a move that brought untold death and destruction and little benefit, Dr. Nichole Quick took it a step further by ordering face masks. That was a step too far for the locals.



    This unelected bureaucrat had to be put in her place. They took it to her house, where her three children could hear protestors reflect on their mother’s impositions on their own lives. Marxists in public health like Dr Quick were taught to make the personal political, a deeply immoral act. Orange County protestors did the opposite and brought the political stage into her personal life, until she cracked and suddenly resigned on Monday, June 8, 2020.



    Congratulations Orange County protestors. The wicked witch is gone, but her awful face mask order which is neither legal nor data-driven remains. Next up Dr. Clayton Chau, her replacement.



    The afternoon of Thursday, June 11, Orange County repealed the mandatory face mask order. This was the direct result of public pressure.



    Director of Rio Grande Health Department — FIRED “After polling local health directors across the state at a meeting last month,” Theresa Anselmo, the executive director of the Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials, “found about 80% said they or their personal property had been threatened since the pandemic began.” It’s refreshing to see the awful public health profession begin to receive pushback.



    Ohio State Health Director — RESIGNED. Having previously been praised by the Washington Post for her tough corona response, Ohio’s state health director, Amy Acton, who had armed protesters come to her house, resigned Thursday, June 11, 2020.



    Detroit’s Senior Public Health Adviser, Dr. Kanzoni Asabigi — RETIRED EARLY

    North Carolina Health Director of the Year — “RESIGNED”

    New Jersey Health Official — Conflict of Interest — FIRED

    Cook County, Illinois Public Health Officer — FIRED

    Connecticut Health Commissioner — FIRED

    Two Dozen Other Health Directors — Fired, Retired, or Resigned



    “A review by Kaiser Health News and The Associated Press finds at least 27 state and local health leaders have resigned, retired or been fired since April across 13 states. “From North Carolina to California, they have left their posts because of a mix of backlash and stressful, nonstop work, all while dealing with chronic staffing and funding shortages.”



    Defund Public Health As Americans come to recognize that they’ve been duped and that public health is another word for Marxism, it would be wonderful to see more of these troublemakers fired and ideally replaced with no one as their budgets are defunded. (Defund Public Health!) Under the guise of health, with little oversight, and with extensive taxpayer funding the Marxist-dominated field of public health has done great harm to our society.



    American Lutheran Church Tucson, AZ — Still Here: Arizona never demanded that churches close. Pastors and church councils just complied out of total ridiculous, uninformed fear. At least one church (and likely hundreds of others that are staying quiet) refused to close even a single Sunday. American Lutheran Church of Tucson, Arizona is still here! Thank you to those brave folks. I’ve watched them from afar in admiration and their courage has been contagious.

    And, if you want the definitive technical answers as to why wearing a mask is counter productive and doesn’t stop a virus’ spread, here it is from scientists, Lisa M Brosseau, ScD, and Margaret Sietsema, PhD. Dr. Brosseau is a national expert on respiratory protection and infectious diseases and professor (retired), University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Sietsema is also an expert on respiratory protection and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    While they must pay homage to many of the claims about the Covid pandemic, they are skeptical that masks will help except in situations such as coughing. As you can easily observe, the biggest flaw in any mask is the loose fit—negating any filtering effect. Virus are too small to be trapped by ordinary masks. Here is an excerpt:



    We do not recommend requiring the general public who do not have symptoms of COVID-19-like illness to routinely wear cloth or surgical masks because: There is no scientific evidence they are effective in reducing the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission... Sweeping mask recommendations—as many have proposed—will not reduce SARS-CoV-2 transmission, as evidenced by the widespread practice of wearing such masks in Hubei province, China, before and during its mass COVID-19 transmission experience earlier this year. Our review of relevant studies indicates that cloth masks will be ineffective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, whether worn as source control or as PPE (personal protection equipment).



    Surgical masks likely have some utility as source control (meaning the wearer limits virus dispersal to another person) from a symptomatic patient in a healthcare setting to stop the spread of large cough particles and limit the lateral dispersion of cough particles. They may also have very limited utility as source control or PPE in households.

    THE HYPOCRISY OF COVID RULES AND PROTESTS

    A local editorial writer in Southern Utah dared to point out the supreme hypocrisy of state officials accepting and praising the mass BLM protests compared to livid condemnation of similar protests against the state restrictions on Covid 19. Kudos to Bryan Hyde of the St. George Sun:



    What a difference a week makes. It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago, public gatherings were being roundly criticized for flouting the rules of public health in a time of pandemic. Individuals who asserted their rights of peaceful public assembly and free speech were treated like pariahs and held up as the embodiment of selfishness by politicians and various bureaucrats. Public officials fear-mongered and clutched their pearls over the potentially deadly implications of these gatherings.



    They hid behind bureaucratic rules, judges and emergency orders to protect the public from what they described as reckless and dangerous disregard for the health and safety of others.



    Now, we see thousands of people gathering in the streets with nary a concern for social distancing and those same politicians and bureaucrats assure us that there is no reason for concern.



    What’s the difference? Apparently, Covid-19 is only dangerous to gatherings where people are standing for their freedom and self-determination. On the other hand if your political message is couched in the kind of collectivist groupthink that doesn’t diminish their power over you, then the virus somehow knows to stay away.



    Did something change in the nature of the threat we were facing or can we finally come right out and state what most of us figured out some time ago? The danger and the models being followed were greatly exaggerated for the purpose of consolidating political power.

    Wow, someone finally had the courage to say it in a local paper. All the others are pandering to the official narrative.



    You’ll understand if I never again take seriously those who agitated for shutting down the economy, stay-at-home orders and the shaming of anyone who dissented or questioned their policies. It’s perfectly clear now that these were political opportunism writ large.



    The larger question that looms is when those who implemented, supported and maintained such policies will ever be held accountable for the unprecedented damage they’ve caused. How many small businesses have closed their doors for good due to the government-mandated shutdowns?



    Where did politicians, bureaucrats and their functionaries get the legitimate authority to designate which people and businesses were “essential” and which were doomed to suffer because they were deemed “non-essential”?



    We’re still in the early stages of surveying the damage but multiple analyses are saying that 50 percent or more of those businesses will not make it. Jon Miltimore and Dan Sanchez, writing for the Foundation for Economic Education note:



    “A recent survey by Main Street America found that 7.5 million small businesses in America are at risk of closing their doors for good. A more recent survey showed that even with federal loans, close to half of all small business owners say they’ll have to shut down for good.”



    Blaming this devastation on the coronavirus is nothing more than an attempt to manage the narrative so as to avoid the reality that politicians and their bureaucratic enablers consciously made the decision to force the economy to a close. Even worse, they enacted arbitrary and unconscionable directives and orders and had them enforced as if they were laws to punish those who dared try to survive.



    Saying, “Whoops!” Isn’t going to cut it. Those who are responsible need to face real accountability and precedent must be established to ensure this never happens again.



    Thankfully, there is just such an organized effort under way. It’s called “We Are Essential” and it’s worth your consideration.



    Attorneys Garrett Smith and Neil Skousen are filing a class action lawsuit in federal court seeking damages from state and local government officials who issued these unconstitutional orders and destroyed the economy and damaged the finances of small business owners.



    Make no mistake, this is not an effort to enrich a few attorneys with a vengeful lawsuit against government institutions. These attorneys are working pro bono and low bono to help right a measurable wrong done to business owners and to ensure that it cannot happen again.



    This lawsuit allows a speedier and less costly means of holding the authorities involved individually responsible. Through Freedom of Information Act and GRAMA requests, it should be possible to determine exactly which individuals signed off on and agreed to these policies with such callous disregard to what it would do to those they deemed “non-essential.”



    This effort will also help to penetrate the smokescreen of fear that has resulted in a large number of Americans supporting these policies without a clue of the actual cost to small business owners and the economy at large.



    Most importantly, it will allow the voices of those who have been harmed to be heard, understood and, if not made whole, at least protected from such tone deaf measures in the future.

    We are hopeful that one of the major conservative legal foundations like Pacific Legal Foundation or Institute for Justice will help out in formulating this lawsuit—the only ones I know of going after the core issues: the false authority States are assuming under the auspices of an emergency in order to mandate these restrictions on our liberties. Sadly, the accountability demanded by Hyde, though correct, is currently thwarted by the “qualified immunity” the Supreme Court long ago granted to government officials who violate rights or the law in the exercise of their official capacity—something the Supreme Court refused to change or amend this week.

    SUPREME COURT DENIES YOUR RIGHT TO DISCRIMINATE ABOUT LGBTQ

    There were 3 major attacks on liberty by the Supreme Court this week, with Justice Roberts joining with the pro-government side of the court in every case.

    The first and most dramatic was their creation of a new protected class people, by declaring private discrimination of gays, lesbians, transgenders and queers. The court decided by a 6-3 vote that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 known as Title VII that bars job discrimination because of sex, among other reasons, also includes bias against gay and lesbian workers. This is the second major betrayal at the hands of Trump appointed justice Neil Gorsuch, who authored the majority opinion. Naturally he was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts. As the Christian Broadcasting network wrote,



    The US Supreme Court stunned court watchers on Monday with its ruling that has redefined the very meaning of the word "sex" to protect LGBTQ workers from discrimination in the workplace. However, when the law was written in 1964, there were only two options: male or female. Now "sex" also means both one's sexual orientation and one's gender identity.

    This is how the courts make new law, by redefining and broadening the terms improperly.



    Title VII of the Civil Rights Act already protected people from employer sexual discrimination as well as discrimination based on race, color, religion, or national origin.

    I disagree with all anti-discrimination laws as a violation of your fundament right to deny association or commercial dealings with anyone for any reason on your own property or business. If you don’t have the right to determine with whom you will associate on your own property, you have lost a most fundamental right.



    Dr. James Dobson, president of the James Dobson Family Institute, believes the justices' decision is an attempt to redefine nature, making it an offense against God.



    "In an outrageous ruling that should shake America's collective conscience to its core, the U.S. Supreme Court has redefined the meaning of 'sex' under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to include 'gender identity' and 'sexual orientation.' Not only was this decision an affront against God, but it was also a historical attack against the founding framework that governs our nation," Dobson said in a statement.



    "Our judiciary is constitutionally charged with interpreting the law, not making law. In its 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court acted as a super-legislature and failed to carry out its primary duty to the American people. And we will all pay the price," he explained.



    "Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of 'race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.' 'Sex,' as used in Title VII means 'male and female,' a simple fact supported by the overwhelming weight of legal authority. Any change to its statutory meaning must come from Congress, and Congress has refused to make such a change for the last 45 years. What gives six justices the right to decide otherwise? Not the Constitution!" Dobson continued.



    "In his dissent, Justice Alito writes that the majority decision 'is like a pirate ship. It sails under a textualist flag, but what it actually represents is a theory of statutory interpretation... that courts should 'update' old statutes so that they better reflect the current values of society.' In plain words, it's not the job of the high court to infuse new meaning into the laws of our land. Americans should be able to rely on what the law says.

    Here is the big effect that this decision will have on our entire society. It isn’t just illegal now to discriminate in employment, but illegal to discriminate over some distorted kid’s view of what gender he thinks he is, despite the biological facts. The most powerful commentary on the long-term ramifications of this terrible ruling came from Daniel Horowitz, senior editor of Conservative Review:



    When Anthony Kennedy discovered a right to force states to redefine marriage in the 2015 Obergefell case, he promised that religious liberty would remain untouched. “The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered,” wrote the former justice for the majority at the time. -Yeah, right.



    Thanks to Justice Gorsuch’s contorted reading of the word “sex” in anti-discrimination law, you now have a right to sue for protection for biological traits you do not possess. This means that legitimate rights of others will now have to yield. Anyone who can’t see the devastating real-world effects of this decision – well beyond firing someone simply because you hate their private behavior – is clearly not paying attention.



    Codifying into anti-discrimination law the concept that a man who says he is a woman must be treated according to his mental illness is not something we can live with as a society. Gorsuch might want to dismiss the earth-shattering ramifications of his opinion, but he knows well that there are already pending lawsuits to demand that men be treated as women, in very dangerous or disruptive ways that go well beyond trying to use the boot of government to stamp out mean or discriminatory behavior.



    Here is an outline of some of the most immediate threats from this decision. These are not hypothetical societal and legal problems:



    Forcing states and doctors to perform castrations

    Forcing employers to retain gay employees and not fire them simply because of their private behavior sounds very innocuous and even laudatory. But what about forcing doctors to perform “sex change” operations and forcing states to fund them? Codifying the desires of someone afflicted with gender dysphoria into sex-based anti-discrimination law will force states and hospitals to treat anyone who believes they are really the opposite gender as that preferred gender.



    In fact, the Supreme Court has already tacitly mandated this. In May, justices declined to take Idaho’s appeal from the Ninth Circuit, where the lower court ordered the state to pay for a castration surgery for a male serving time in Idaho prison for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.



    Similarly, a federal judge in Wisconsin mandated that the Badger State use its Medicaid funding to pay for “gender confirmation” mutilations, which can include castration, mastectomies, hysterectomies, genital reconstruction, and breast augmentation. Will Gorsuch be there for us to overturn those decisions?



    Women’s bathrooms, locker rooms, and all-female sports

    Barring a male who says he is a female from an all-girls sports team, bathroom, or locker room now constitutes sex-based discrimination. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 reads as follows:



    No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.



    It’s not even a jump to apply this ruling to that law; it’s a logical outgrowth. All separate gender school activities and private dressing rooms are out the window because the 1972 law, which liberals already felt included transgenderism, will now be so interpreted.



    College dorms

    As Justice Alito warns, similar lawsuits may be brought under the Fair Housing Act against colleges that have separate dorms for males and females. Also, female prisoners will be subjected to males living with them. Again, once sex is redefined, it is no longer limited to employment or animus-based discrimination. As Alito warned, “The Court … argues, not merely that the terms of Title VII can be interpreted that way but that they cannot reasonably be interpreted any other way. According to the Court, the text is unambiguous.” This wasn’t even a close call for the majority, and it will therefore reverberate across all areas of law, politics, and society.



    Religious schools must become pagan

    We were told not to worry about Obergefell creating a right to gay marriage because it was merely an issue of a marriage certificate and would never affect private religious institutions. Well, what happens now if a cross-dresser or a prominent homosexual activist wants to teach in a Catholic, Orthodox Jewish, or Muslim school? The majority opinion blithely denied these concerns and noted how title VII protects religious liberty by offering some long-standing exceptions. However, those exceptions have been interpreted more and more narrowly as time goes on. The same way Gorsuch has evolved on the definition of a sex, the courts are evolving on religious protections, and the former will now accelerate the latter.



    What about pedophilia, nudity, and the next frontier in our “evolving” society?

    What happens when the next letters of the alphabet get codified into the sacrilege of the sexual behavior legal protections, such as “N” for nudity and “P” for pedophilia? “My sexual orientation is to be with children.” “My sexual orientation is to express myself freely and be proud of my body, not to hide it.”



    You might laugh, but at the speed with which transgenderism became in vogue, there is nothing stopping more sexual fetishes from joining the quasi “legal” distinction with a fancy acronym. The mainstreaming of pedophilia is already under way. Could employers still not fire those individuals for being disruptive to the decorum of the office the same way they can’t fire a man who walks in one day dressed like a woman, even if he has to deal with clients? Those ideals can be read into the word “sex” of a 1964 statute just as much as transgenderism can. After all, gay expanded to LGB and T, and then an undefined “Q” got added in. Others add on IAPK to include “intersex, asexual, pansexual, and kink.” It has broadly become known in those circles as “LGBTQ+.”



    Freedom of speech

    As Justice Alito warned in his dissent, the New York City government has already made it a criminal offense not to address someone by his or her preferred pronoun.



    Supporters of this decision claim that because the court did not create a constitutional right, merely a retroactive reinterpretation of statue, Congress is still free to legislate. But who are we kidding here? The Civil Rights Act is as politically untouchable as the Fourteenth Amendment, and there is no way Congress will have the guts to deal with this fallout. State legislatures will be cut out from the process entirely.



    Also, as Alito warns, the jump from codifying transgenderism into statute to into the Constitution is nothing more than a hiccup for its supporters to overcome, and the court has consistently done that in the past. There are already numerous cases percolating in the lower courts to do just that. Once the lower courts codify a new right, we have seen the Supreme Court first ignore the lower court radicalization and then downright legitimize it.

    The next move by the court was a refusal to reconsider a growing movement to remove “qualified immunity” from government officials when they knowingly violate your rights or the law. Jay Schweiker of the CATO Institute has the story:



    This morning, the Supreme Court denied all of the major certiorari petitions [challenging the decisions of a lower court] raising the question of whether qualified immunity should be reconsidered. This is, to put it bluntly, a shocking dereliction of duty. As Cato has argued for years, qualified immunity is an atextual, ahistorical judicial invention, which shields public officials from liability, even when they break the law. The doctrine not only denies justice to victims whose rights have been violated, but also exacerbates our crisis of confidence in law enforcement. By holding police officers to a far lower standard of accountability than ordinary citizens, qualified immunity deprives the entire law enforcement community of the public trust and credibility they need to do their jobs safely and effectively.



    There was simply no excuse for the Court to decline this golden opportunity to begin addressing its mistakes in creating and propagating the doctrine of qualified immunity. The petitions before the Court plainly demonstrated both the moral injustices and practical absurdities of the “clearly established law” standard. In Corbitt v. Vickers, for example, the Supreme Court let stand an Eleventh Circuit decision granting immunity to a police officer who shot a ten year old child in the back of the knee, while repeatedly attempting to shoot a pet dog that wasn’t threatening anyone. And in Baxter v. Bracey, the Court let stand a Sixth Circuit decision which said that a prior case holding it unconstitutional for police to deploy a canine against a suspect who had surrendered by lying on the ground did not “clearly establish” that it was unlawful for police to deploy a canine against a suspect who had surrendered by sitting on the ground with his hands up.



    Justice Thomas was the only member of the Court who would have granted any of the petitions. He dissented in the Baxter case, writing that “[b]ecause our § 1983 qualified immunity doctrine appears to stray from the statutory text, I would grant this petition.” It’s especially disappointing that Justice Gorsuch didn’t join this dissent, as he has otherwise demonstrated himself to be a principled advocate of textualism and originalism, and also willing to reconsider misguided precedent. And it’s surprising that Justice Sotomayor had nothing to say regarding these cases, given her previous comments in a dissent (joined by Justice Ginsburg) noting that qualified immunity had become an “absolute shield for law enforcement officers” that has “gutt[ed] the deterrent effect of the Fourth Amendment.” Perhaps one or more of these Justices will agree to hear some future case. But for now, Justice Thomas stands alone.



    In the tumultuous wake of George Floyd’s brutal death at the hands of Minneapolis police, this development could not come at a worse time. The senseless violence committed by Derek Chauvin—and the stunning indifference of the officers standing by as George Floyd begged for his life—is the product of our culture of near zero accountability for law enforcement. And while this culture has many complex causes, one of the most significant is qualified immunity. By effectively rewriting and undermining the civil rights law that was supposed to be our primary means of holding public officials accountable, the Supreme Court shares a huge portion of the blame for our present crisis.



    It’s impossible to know for sure what motivated the Court to deny all of these petitions. But one possibility is that the Justices were looking closely at developments in Congress—where members of both the House and the Senate have introduced bills that would abolish qualified immunity—and decided to duck the question, hoping to pressure Congress to fix the Court’s mess. It is certainly encouraging that so many legislators have finally turned their attention to qualified immunity. But the mere fact that Congress can fix this mess doesn’t absolve the Supreme Court of its obligation to fix what it broke—the Court conjured qualified immunity out of nothing in the first place, and the Justices had both the authority and responsibility to correct their own blunders, no matter what happens in the legislature.



    Qualified immunity will go down in history as one of the Supreme Court’s most egregious, costly, and embarrassing mistakes. None of the Justices on the Court today were responsible for creating this doctrine, but they all had a responsibility to fix it—and except for Justice Thomas, they all shirked that responsibility.



    The third major issue this week was a bizarre ruling by Chief Justice John Roberts to block the Trump administration from ending the Obama era DACA program granting legal status to millions of young people brought into the country illegally by their parents. ABC News reports:



    Roberts said there's no question President Trump has the power to end DACA but the issue was how he did it -- the reasons he gave and the process he failed to follow. "DHS’s decision to rescind DACA was arbitrary and capricious under the" Administrative Procedures Act, Roberts wrote. "The dispute before the Court is not whether DHS may rescind DACA. All parties agree that it may. The dispute is instead primarily about the procedure the agency followed in doing so."



    He says Trump and DHS did not adequately consider the impact on the DACA recipients themselves and the potential hardships for the some 700,000 young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children by their parents.

    Of course they considered that. What are they supposed to say, that it doesn’t have a negative impact on DACA recipients? Had they said so, I presume Roberts would have found that a reason to block it.



    Apparently in response to the ruling, the president tweeted: "These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!"

    More justices like Gorsuch who Trump appointed? If Trump actually chose a non-Deep State controlled judge, like Robert Bork, the Senate would never confirm them.

    NEWS SHORTS:

    Colorado Bill would Require Re-education for Anti-Vaxxers: Colorado has introduced a bill that has passed committee that would “re-educate” parents who refuse to vaccinate their child with the coronavirus vaccine—forcing them to watch pro-vaccine “online education modules” and certify that they have done so before they can claim any of the state exemptions against taking vaccines. As Mac Slavo writes,



    This plandemic was never about health, it was about forcing everyone to get a vaccine: an injection of whatever the hell the ruling class decided to put in the vaccine. These vaccines are not being required for the health of anyone unless it’s for the health of Big Pharma and the ruling class.

    The big question is, “What happens if the ‘re-education’ fails” and the person still doesn’t want to take the vaccine. Eventually, the state will push to make it mandatory.

    AG Barr Goes After Big Tech? Barr was making the right noises this week, but I doubt he will follow through. Barr is threatening to alter the law which grants big tech companies immunity for what others post on websites like Facebook and Twitter, because they censor unfairly—but trying to impose a fairness doctrine on them will be tough. According to the report, it also appears that the Justice Department won’t try to strip tech companies of their immunity for censoring “objectionable” content, instead the aim is to spur Big Tech to be “fairer and more consistent in their decisions to take down content they find objectionable.” (Allum Bokhari) Good luck with that!

    John Bolton’s Claims about Trump: Bolton has written a tell-all book about Trump making all kinds of accusations through leaks to the press: 1) trying to get Xi Jingping to help him get reelected. Bolton claims to have the exact transcript, which would mean he got that through his Deep State buddies, 2) that Trump defended Saudi's Mohammed bin Salman over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi to keep the spotlight off the revelation of Ivanka using a private email account. (Wrong, it was because he was pandering to Saudi Arabia), 3) that Trump asked Theresa May if Britain had nuclear weapons, said invading Venezuela would be 'cool' and it was 'really part of the U.S.,' and thought Finland was in Russia. (Probably True given his ignorance of things.)

    China and India in Limited War: Fighting has broken out in the brutal Himalayan border between these two long-time enemies, escalating to significant casualties on both sides. India has given the go ahead to bring up more formidable weapons. India reports that its soldiers were mutilated after being beaten to death by Chinese troops in a brutal Himalayan border battle - and revealed the nail-embedded metal rods used in the brawl.

    Turkey Launches 'Largest Ever' Air & Ground Assault Into Northern Iraq: As Zerohedge reports, Turkey is taking advantage of the US preoccupation with unrest to start up again its assault on the Kurds in Iraq.

    On Tuesday evening the Turkish Defense Ministry announced the start of “Operation Tiger Claw” a ground and artillery barrage against the Syrian Army. Iraq's Ministry of Foreign Affairs - outraged at yet another violation of Iraqi sovereignty - promptly summoned the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad and lodged a memorandum of protest.

    Below is a bit more "on the ground" local reporting of the situation in Atlanta. But I will say, this is going to get worse before it gets better. Police across the country are facing a reckoning, one which is really only partially their making. The system is corrupt. And trying to paint over rotten wood just isn't going to fix anything, much less trying to say that the wood is not even rotten.

    If America is being "taken down" it's as much due to her own choices as it is to any outside influences. There is so much ancestral trauma from so many different angles that is being exposed right now---there is no easy way out. Cleaning out these wounds that have been festering for generations is going to be painful.

    Those that would like for BLM to just disappear are ignorant to how deep this wound goes. The systemic bigotry and corruption have rotted our entire justice system to its core. Those who just want some reform are basically calling for a little bit of paint over rotted wood. Those that want to complain about how the movement has been hijacked are missing the point. Of course the movement has been hijacked! Every. single. meaningful. movement toward addressing corruption. That does not mean that people should stop fighting.

    I do wonder that while the rot is being exposed, what will people do when they see how truly deep it is?

    In the end, it is my hope that the rot will be removed and that we will have a better world for it. But it's not going to be easy, and it will be painful.

    Hi Sarah, compared to some kind of unrealistic, hypothetical utopia, the U.S. appears to be rotten. but compared to the rest of the world (and compared to our not too distant history) it is a shining beacon of hope, despite everything going on now. much of the world is ruled by brutal thugs. large numbers of people are starving and don't have access to clean drinking water...or any water for that matter. some live in mud huts, among civil war torn lands devoid of any of the amenities or technologies or conveniences we all enjoy here. I'm working part time in a pretty low paying job, and I can still get a steak and a beer pretty much whenever i want...and still pay the rent too. Poverty in America represents luxury in many other places. In that sense, a preoccupation with race is practically a luxury

    it's never been easier to be alive. for anyone. especially if you live here in the U.S. and look, i'm not some red white n blue foam finger waving patriot either. there are some things that need to change, but to blow the whole thing up is nuts. for example, we all have an internal guide to meaning; the psychologists call it the "orientating reflex". it's that place between stasis and transformation. it basically asks you to maintain your structure even as you update it in the face of constant challenges. if you blow up your basic structure it's just chaos(i.e 'defund the police' or 'disband the police'); if you don't change at all you become stale and antiquated. balance. this conversation we are having now, for example, is within a tradition that is sufficiently general so we can all understand it, and is being sufficiently updated all the time. that's how society needs to move forward, imo.

    criticizing it all is perfectly ok. striving for improvement is admirable and perfectly ok. but imo it should all be within the context of enormous gratitude for what we have built here. otherwise it's immensely disrespectful to all the millions of people - black and white and whoever - who have toiled so hard for so long to build it.

    i think we all have a kind of collective amnesia when social justice enters the arena; we all suddenly forget all the wonderful and life changing things those systems have provided us with.

    when we're kids and we don't get what we want we may huff and puff and hyperventilate and scream: I hate you! I wish you were dead!, all over something that seems meaningful in the moment but likely isn't..to a set of parents who have done nothing but nurtured and fed and loved us and kept us alive. but when they don't buy us that lego set, we suddenly forget all that. not a perfect analogy, but you get the point

    if we're going to acknowledge systemic racism, fair enough!..but then we also have to acknowledge systemic historical ignorance, systemic entitlement, systemic lack of gratitude, systemic victim-hood, systemic black on black crime, systemic absentee black fathers, and so on and so forth.

    it would be easy for me to start with the word 'systemic' and add just about any word i want immediately after and proceed to build a case around it to prove some kind of hypothetical oppression. it's because, yes, it's true, there is suffering all over the world. it's not all fair. life isn't fair. but it's no excuse to blow it all up. those systems actually work pretty good; if there is anything wrong with them with regards to racism or whatever, (which there is always going to be,nothing is ever perfect) it's a problem with the individual people running them. in other words, it's a problem with individuals, not systems; it's a problem with individuals, not entire races of people. you can't legislate love and compassion, unfortunately. nor can you change attitudes thru so called "bias training"

    so where does that leave us? well, it all ultimately distills down to individuals. identity politics are never, ever useful. all it ever does is create opposing ideological tribes.

    and if there is such a thing as ancestral trauma, i don't see why it would disproportionally effect black people more than anyone else. history is filled with horrifying acts of injustice and oppression, and if you go back far enough and long enough, everyone has experienced some form of it. and you don't really have to go back too far actually. we have the holocaust from the early 1940's, right? the jews don't seem to be collectively traumatized in any way at the moment. seem to be doing just fine. some even say they're ruling the world
    Hi Mike,
    I'm not comparing America to anything else other than to her own self-proclaimed ideals. And those are lies that are built to benefit a few at the expense of others, not just the low-income and minorities here in the US, but of whole other countries. The American people have been sold a lie that was built on propaganda and oppression.

    America is most certainly not the only industrialized country with access to steaks and running water. Many people in many other countries are living not so differently than we do in that regard. To hold up the US as some beacon of hope is rather arrogant. Try talking to some of the many members here that live in countries other than the US.

    As far as the many third world countries still living in mud huts, I'd ask why? Most of them are stuck in that state because of imperialism, many directly due to American Imperialism. America did not become a super power without a cost, and that cost can be tallied in violence and in lives. That is the kind of history we must reconcile. And we cannot reconcile that if we do not acknowledge it.

    I'm not saying "blow up the structure" but whenever I have tried to look at the deeper, core issues, I've found layers like an onion. And peeling off those layers have left me with a pile of rotten peelings.

    We are at a point where we must face our own history. We cannot continue to paint over all the injustices that we, as a country, have done.

    I believe that it is the people--not the government, not the huge corporations--that form the gold nugget at the center. It is the people who, in spite of living with lies and propaganda and oppression, choose to reach out to each other and build better lives and leave the world in a better place than when they found it. Be grateful for that, not for what was built on the backs of human misery.

    The ancestral trauma I spoke of does not begin nor end with black Americans, but they do play a major part. And we can certainly start there.

    Here in the Tulsa, OK area the anger has amped up in everyone here in the last day. My wife became extremely irritable all yesterday. The neighbors were arguing, and everyone in the area is tense. I think they've upped the Hertz of the cell towers like they did a U.C. Berkeley to stir up anger and tension. They're ramping up to try something in Tulsa me thinks. You can just feel it now in the air here the day before the event. Something has changed in the frequency of the space we're in down here. I'm thinking of taking my wife outside the area for the event time just to get her away from the frequencies.

    The lynch mob now turns on the police. Watch as more chaos and conflict will develop amid the growing witch-hunt hysteria, with police officers everywhere deciding it's just not worth it to continue to try to do their job.

    A new career in private security, probably much better paid and with much more anonymity, will be looking far more attractive to many.
    When did it become OK for police to shoot someone in the back who's running away? In all the discussion on TV about the Atlanta shooting, they show, but do not discuss, the fact that the suspect was fleeing and shot in the back by an angry cop.
    1. Brooks was fleeing with a taser, and had turned to discharge it at the cop (Rolfe).
    2. In Georgia law, a taser is a [potentially] deadly weapon. (And especially so in untrained hands.)
    3. How do you know Rolfe was "angry"? That seems like an emotional assumption on your part.
    I'd strongly suggest that the heavy charges pressed on Rolfe were to appease the mob. He's being sacrificed (temporarily) to try to deter further riots. But the charges are likely to be dismissed in court — and then all hell will break loose again.
    1) he was fleeing and was shot in the back
    2) he was not pointing the taser at anyone when shot. They should have chased him down and told him to drop the taser
    3) I would be angry in that situation, and I infer from the fact he shot the guy in the back rather than doing #2 above, that he was angry
    I wouldn't be angry I would be scared and ashamed and desperate to get my tazer back,he is shooting my own tazer at me after all.if he hits me what next,a casual stroll over and pick my gun up?
    He was not shooting your own tazer at you, he was fleeing with your tazer. Shooting him twice in the back to get your tazer back is pretty extreme.

    No sorry I don't agree at all.he turns around pointing the tazer with extended arm at the officer,that is very clear footage
    I will clarify I don't agree with shooting him dead.

    Not disagreeing, but this weekend is a solar eclipse, summer solstice, new moon, and Mercury retrograde... so it's entirely possible that's affecting things, too.

    If I may add my own input here. Arresting the cop in Atlanta for doing his job is now a threat to the entire city really! If we allow bad guys to tase good guy cops doing their jobs then the bad guy can obtain the gun too as well as the tase from the cop he tased! For that matter once the one cop is out cold the bad guy could kill both cops, and now he has two guns, two tasers, and anything in the down cops wallets, their badges if he wants them, handcuffs, and their car!

    I ask you does that sound like a good situation for the city you live in to any of you? For the escapee to now have all of that at his disposal to potentially terrorize your town? How reassuring huh? Or should the cop have protected and served the community by shooting the threat dead the second he had a weapon pointed at him in the dark! ?How did the cop know the guy pointed the taser and not a real gun has anyone thought of this? Hint he didn't! For all he or the other cop knew the guy escaping was hiding a gun the entire time and that was why he ran! Maybe it was why he was resisting as he did! For all the cop knew it was a real gun being pointed at him in the dark as he ran.

    But either way, even if the cop thought about none of this if the bad guys can tase the cops and the cops are supposed to go against their training instead of go with what they are taught in school and shoot the guy pointing a weapon at them it puts the cops in a damned if they do and damned if they don't situation! Is it any wonder so many walked today in Atlanta? If they do as they are trained only to then have their lives ruined by the very ones hiring them to do their jobs no one can blame a cop for cutting his losses with something rather than lose it all when he follows his training only to be ruined financially having to defend himself in court against his or her own employer. To be prosecuted for it when you followed the book isn't a problem with the cops then the problem is with the training not the cops. The problem is they need to reset the standard for how they are training cops to react.

    Someone said earlier one bad protester misbehaving or even two or three do not make for all protesters to be bad! Then why do one or two bad cops now and then make all cops bad to where everyone under the spell of the leftists chants now wants to defund the cops? My grandfather was a game warden. He was shot once by a perp trying get out of a ticket! My dad was a state cop and got a domestic abuse call only to be smacked in the back of the head with a skillet by the wife that called them to her aid about her abusive husband! My brother was until a few months back the chief of Police in Capon Bridge, WV and my other brother a couselor in the federal prison bureau! I stand with the cops! A lot of my family are cops!
    The genius consistently stands out from the masses in that he unconsciously anticipates truths of which the population as a whole only later becomes conscious! Speech-circa 1937

    The lynch mob now turns on the police. Watch as more chaos and conflict will develop amid the growing witch-hunt hysteria, with police officers everywhere deciding it's just not worth it to continue to try to do their job.

    A new career in private security, probably much better paid and with much more anonymity, will be looking far more attractive to many.
    When did it become OK for police to shoot someone in the back who's running away? In all the discussion on TV about the Atlanta shooting, they show, but do not discuss, the fact that the suspect was fleeing and shot in the back by an angry cop.
    1. Brooks was fleeing with a taser, and had turned to discharge it at the cop (Rolfe).
    2. In Georgia law, a taser is a [potentially] deadly weapon. (And especially so in untrained hands.)
    3. How do you know Rolfe was "angry"? That seems like an emotional assumption on your part.
    I'd strongly suggest that the heavy charges pressed on Rolfe were to appease the mob. He's being sacrificed (temporarily) to try to deter further riots. But the charges are likely to be dismissed in court — and then all hell will break loose again.
    1) he was fleeing and was shot in the back
    2) he was not pointing the taser at anyone when shot. They should have chased him down and told him to drop the taser
    3) I would be angry in that situation, and I infer from the fact he shot the guy in the back rather than doing #2 above, that he was angry
    I wouldn't be angry I would be scared and ashamed and desperate to get my tazer back,he is shooting my own tazer at me after all.if he hits me what next,a casual stroll over and pick my gun up?
    He was not shooting your own tazer at you, he was fleeing with your tazer. Shooting him twice in the back to get your tazer back is pretty extreme.
    No sorry I don't agree at all.he turns around pointing the tazer with extended arm at the officer,that is very clear footage
    I will clarify I don't agree with shooting him dead.
    Yes, you are right. I saw the video where he turned around to fire the taser at the officer. However, the video I originally saw on TV left out that part! And it's not just me. I was watching McLaughlin Group and Eleanor Clift seemed to have seen the same video I saw, and had the same reaction. However, I can't find that video!

    The End Game Has Arrived: ‘All Signs and Evidence Point to the Great Global Economic Reset’

    I suggest we go after this one.

    Not as a "protest", more like an exterminator.

    The Reset I have in mind is similar both to how the U. S. Constitution originally explains Lawful Money, and, to a group of related principles that has been posted a few times around Avalon, about Fractional Reserve Lending and so forth.

    It was pretty much the main political platform of the U. S. until the Civil War.

    Since the Reset is open to suggestions, we know it is nothing more than a sales pitch. This would be a way to tell them "you're out of business".

    If the system is allowed to rebound in any way, even if it pays some tax or cuts down on pollution, it will continue to benefit basically the same few at the expense of everyone, who will not notice, because they got something small they want.

    If a democratic advocacy group have a problem with a lunatic fringe that they cannot control, and who commit violence and destruction to property, they should be very receptive to the proposal that police officers are embedded within them, who will tie anybody who breaks the law. That is protecting peoples rights to peaceful assembly.

    BILL BINNEY: NSA Official Who BUILT their SPYING PROGRAMS explains the SECRETS they hold right NOW! (42:16) [June 8, 2020]



    This may relate to the coming reset mentioned in this thread and elsewhere, as well as all the psychological warfare meant to distract from it, so that it goes a certain way. I got tired of trying to clean up the parts of the transcript I wanted to include, so here it is partially cleaned up.

    ------------------------------------------------------
    MH == Michelle Holiday
    BB == Bill Binney

    00:44

    MH: Bill is the man who actually created the spying programs that are still utilized today by the NSA. It's very important for everyone to understand that those programs were created in order to spy on foreign enemy governments. They were never intended to be used to be spying upon American citizens and there is no one on the planet who knows these programs better than Mr. Bill Binney and we are so honored to have him with us today.

    --------

    15:49

    BB: and by the way CIA, according to Casey, back in the early 1980s, he said that we are infiltrating the media and you'll know that we've succeeded when virtually everything is or 70 at least 70% of what is believed by the American public is false. That was straight from Casey, a former director of Central Intelligence back in the Reagan years, in the early 80s.

    MH: That's a quote from him.

    BB: Yeah, and now you can see the effect of that, is what we've got today. He was director of CIA under Ronald Reagan's first term

    --------

    23:48

    BB: There was a final point that they removed that protection by the way so that all the data came in from the filtering it was no longer filtered they all came in and all the identities were there and nothing was protected, and then the final one was we audited who came into our network to see who went where, what they did, and what they did with the data. So for example if they had our program in place at that time, using that audit routine, they could have picked up Edward Snowden pulling out data as he did it, you know within milliseconds of him doing it so but they removed that. Why? Because they didn't want anybody in Congress knowing what they were doing with the information, or with money, and because all those money transfers go across the network too, and we would have all of that data there, and they didn't want anybody to know that.

    --------

    25:00

    MH: When did the surveillance programs that you created, when exactly were they turned into a situation where everyone was under surveillance? When did that happen?

    BB: It actually started in October of 2001, and it was determined that the core people at the decision to do this were Bush, Bush the Jr., Cheney, Hayden and Tenet. Tenet was the director of CIA at the time. Those four made the decision to do that and Hayden basically made it possible with the programs by removing the filtering and removing the protections and their encryption and getting rid of the audit routine to allow that program to run and collect everything on everybody on the planet including starting first with US citizens.

    MH: From October 2001.

    BB: Right, and in fact Mueller in his interview with Bart Gellman in 2011 before he was initially scheduled to leave the FBI but it was later extended. He said that he and the FBI had been using the stellarwind program since 2001. Well the stellar wind program is the data based collection of all US citizens so all that data collected on U.S. citizens was in this stellar wind database and he basically said that they've been using it since 2001.

    MH: And Bill, what was the goal to have every person in the world under surveillance?

    BB: It gives you power over everybody, not just individual citizens, but members of Congress, members of Parliaments around the world, members of leaders of the world, everything. You get as much data as you can on everybody in the planet that gives you power over everyone. It's a straightforward totalitarian process, which is why I left NSA, why I kept saying that that's what it is since the beginning of going public in 2011. It's a totalitarian state process. We are moving to a police state.

    --------

    28:40

    MH: So Bill, this is morphing into a very interesting situation, because these spying programs from October 2001 were picking up everything that everybody did and said and throughout that period of time it is suspected that some very substantial financial crimes were being committed. For example on Wall Street, the bankers were thought to have been involved in naked short-selling, which is selling shares that do not exist, and in money laundering, but there has never been any proof so this is a stunning realization that indeed there is proof if that happened, and that it is being held right now in the NSA programs that you created.

    BB: Well, it's in the storage that's associated with them. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, that's right in in for example the Utah facility at the at the you know the million square foot storage facility to go out there they also have a 600,000 square foot facility built down in San Antonio, and they got the major computer centers and in computer buildings here on Fort Meade and lots of storage at NSA and also in Denver and various other places around the world. So in a distributed network, they've got a lot more storage than anybody really realizes.

    MH: And it's all been stored on everyone since October 2001?

    BB: Yup, and actually even some people, even before that.

    MH: And some people even before that.

    BB: Right.

    MH: And I know that you have said that you carry a sense of responsibility over creating the programs that you intended to protect our country but that were turned and used against the American people, but from what you're saying there's a very ironic twist to this because these same programs that were spying on everyone may have been secretly recording some massive criminal behavior, because it is estimated at about 100 trillion dollars that belong to the American public disappeared on Wall Street.

    BB: Well I mean it's uh all of that should be recorded too. You know all the transfers, everything.

    MH: This is, this has, it has almost a Shakespearean twist to it, because this massive amount of money that came up missing and left so many people completely devastated with no idea of what happened, so to find out now that all of that activity was being spied on and these criminals didn't know that they too were being spied on, so what would it take for you to tap into these programs and pull out that information?

    BB: Well you'd start with the social networks built by NSA over the last ten to thirty years which all of that is handled and compiled they're in form of a graphing routine or graphing programs. And so what you would do is need a seed there and all you do is use that seed and pull out all that data and information which is also indexed to the content and databases and you can pull out all of that content and immediately start analyzing who's involved in what and every activity of all humans on the planet is recorded there in that form so you just pick what form do you want? Do you want dope smuggling? Do you want money-laundering? Do you want, what do you want? It's all recorded and graphed.

    MH: So all of that activity on Wall Street say in 2008 when all those banks fell and all that money disappeared all, everything they were doing, is recorded in those programs.

    BB: Yeah, it's in the form of bank transfers [...] you know that kind of thing.

    MH: So you can go back and find out where all that money went.

    BB: Yup, yup.

    MH: This is just so stunning as an American citizen because honestly we thought, I'm sure the majority of the public thought, that money was just all gone, there was no proof of who did what or where it went or what happened and it's just gone but that's not the case.

    BB: Nope, no I mean the evidence is still there in one form or another, in one department of the US government or another one or in all of them put together, maybe, they just don't know they've got it, because they got too much data they can't see it.

    MH: So if it's in within those programs and these are the ones that you built, so you know how to pull out that information.

    BB: Yeah, the devices they're using to take down and collect data off the fiber network will take down the entire fiber, everything on the fiber, so it's not a question of you know whether it was banking data, phone calls, emails, chatter, you know, surfing, whatever, the web, all of that's in the fiber, and all of that is taken down by these devices and put into storage. You know it's just a, and by the way there's no dark fiber. All the fiber contains light all the light is reconstructed into data, so there is no dark fiber.

    MH: What is dark fiber, Bill?

    BB: Well, people refer to dark fibers, things on the web that people don't know are there, so it's like a dark, they call it the dark, the dark web or the dark fiber. It's actually just not indexed by Google or Yahoo or somebody, you know?

    MH: But it's in your program?

    BB: Yes. Because all of the data, whether you call it dark fiber or not, is transmitted along the fibers, in the form of light and that is all all the light is transformed into data and stored, so it's not a question of dark or not dark, it's all stored.

    MH: I'm telling you this is just a stunning revelation so I'm going to nutshell this one more time just for myself and for everyone else what you're saying to us is that from October 2001 until now everything everyone has done has been spied upon and is held within programs, the programs that you created that are still utilized by the NSA, and that you yourself have the power to go in and pull out that information and see what's going on. Bill would this take years?

    BB: No, it's very short a matter of time. As long as you had the seed that's all you'd need. You know, some indication that one person was involved in an activity. That would be enough.

    MH: Oh, the seed meaning the suspicion.

    BB: Right. That's right. Otherwise we could simply graph all transfers of funds of any significant size or of all sizes you know, whatever the amount was transferred, we could graph and build a relationship that way and use software to kind of sort out what looked suspicious and what didn't.

    MH: Who would have to bring you in? Would it be the President to actually go in to the programs? Who do you need permission from at this point?

    BB: I would think there would have to be a a White House directed initiative because the bureaucrats and all the agencies would resist it in any way they possibly could. This is the way these bureaucrats operate. You know they make it look so make it they make a problem difficult to achieve, you know to solve so you have to anticipate that that would be the case, and you have to have the power and authority to push them out of the way, okay?

    --------

    38:58

    MH: Is there anything that I haven't asked that you would like to add to this particular topic?

    BB: Just you know the affidavits of judges in the courts or she appear to be trying to keep this information from being testified in federal court I mean there in the public it's in the open and it's documented you know and so in the case of Roger stone and the case of general Flynn they didn't seem to appear to care to have the truth about Russia gate and read into their court so to me that smacks of the courts a part of this process you know that just smells that they're involved in this also and they want to keep it out of sight out of mind you know and that these judges are also involved in that.

    MH: It's just so important for the American people as a whole in the whole world as a whole but our country right now is so divided and again as I mentioned about you know half of our country still thinks that the president is a terrible person and that all of this really happened and he got away with you knows and then the wall street criminality that just the things that have been just despicable happening in this bill by people that did it because they were trusted and that's the truth and did it because they were trusted and you your revelation that the very programs again it's like a Shakespearean twist the very programs that were taken to be used against everyone in spy on everyone picked up everything including some things that people didn't realize they were being spied upon doing.

    BB: yeah that's and that's why they remove the auditing routine on the end of our software so that they couldn't be audited see but the information is still there. So all we'd have to do is have that audit routine and then go in and and we could do all of this stuff with very little very little effort.
    The only place a perfect right angle ever CAN be, is the mind.
