BIg day today thanks for doing what you do.
Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.
Yes I am compiling a Blog about the great pandemic of 2020 and how my country stupidly shut down the economy. We will have opinions, political and cultural highlights, my personal experience, social media details, even TV reviews since I watch so much TV while in my home jail. We shall, as always, end with a smile.
MISC. PANDEMIC NOTES OF THE WEEK
(an update for my descendants)
The biggest pandemic news this week, as I alert my descendants, is the fact that many things are going open, much because of the griping of Americans done locked into their homes for two months.
Some states are stubborn, the Michigan Governor is still an asshole. But the people are mad and ain't taking it anymore.
The latest argument is for North Carolina to agree to host the Republican convention, with full attendance, this coming August.
President Trump says he's going to another state if he does not receive a firm commitment from the Governor of North Carolina. Who, as of this writing, has not done so yet.
MAJOR POLITICAL EVENT OF THE WEEK
Biden says vote for him or you're not black
It's big news this week. Democratic presidential contender, former VP Joe Biden, was in a chat with a radio disc jockey. Biden suddenly made the oddest declaration: "If you don't vote for me, you're not black"
Biden makes the assumption, as my descendants can plainly see, that all blacks will vote for him.
But he's made a lot of black people mad, descendants. And when one thinks about it, descendants, the Democrats should stop taking black peoples' votes for granted.
It seems that President Trump's new press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, is causing quite the stir with the "journalists" in attendance at a press conference.
Last week McEnany dictated five questions she would like the journalists in attendance to ask her. All of the questions involved the investigation of Mike Flynn. Questions which were NOT asked of that subject and I must ask, why not?
The FBI and the prior administration and some intelligence agencies of the 5,466 did everything they could to throw Flynn, a war hero and military leader, in jail that he never reveal his secrets and then they all could go after President Trump. The Mueller report was useless. The impeachment over Ukraine went nowhere.
So go after a prominent Trump administration official and somehow, maybe have him tell bad things about Trump.
This little session cause quite the stir in D.C. because McEnany slammed her folder shut and strolled out the door, ignoring all other questions thrown at her.
MAJOR CULTURE EVENT OF THE WEEK
(one more update)
I ask my descendants to never allow a lock down like this moment in time as I write. For sure do not ever allow the shutting down of churches.
This past week President Trump held a press conference and announced he was hereby opening all churches from lock down. Actually he ordered the applicable governor to do it but Trump said he would over-ride them if they did not.
This is President Trump who does not want to allow freedom to worship to leave the American life and as in our constitution.
For sure the churches must follow suggested protocols, such as social distancing, a limited amount of attendees....the sort of thing all essential organizations must do.
If the liquor stores were deemed essential, why were the churches not so?
Disney has gay main character
To my descendants who may have chanced to go to Disney World during some future beyond this writing, I must wonder does that organization seem to be as homosexual oriented as it is as I type?
Disney World even has an all homosexual day at their park. I've wondered just why those homosexuals couldn't attend the park with the heterosexuals. It's a damn amusement park. Why can't we all be amused together?
At any rate, it was only a matter of time that Disney would have movies with gay characters.
The 9-minute film debuted Friday as one of seven films in the studios SparkShorts program. SparkShorts aims to discover new storytellers, explore new storytelling techniques, and experiment...
main character Greg is preparing to move into the city with his boyfriend, Manuel. Greg is gripped by the difficulty of coming out as gay to his parents, who have paid a surprise visit to help him pack for his move....
I don't suppose it's a problem with having a gay character in a film but bear in mind that Disney films are engineered for children.
Or is that the intent?
PERSONAL NOTES FROM ME RE THE PANDEMIC
(that my descendants may know how I handled it)
Worst Memorial Day Ever
It was made worse by the fact that my hot water heater, which had been only half-working for a couple of years, sprung a leak.
It was Memorial Day. How the hell much would it cost to call in a plumber on this holiday?
So I piled towels up around the bottom of the heater because there is no faucet to turn that will turn off a leak. I checked all around and noted the bottom of the heater was rusted through.
All night I prayed it wouldn't bust open and flood my house.
And don't forget we're all still under lock down here in Delaware where Carney is King. A Memorial Day stuck at home with water leaking all over the place.
The following day I did get a plumber out and it wasn't cheap, but there's a new hot water heater installed and life is looking better.
Masks Be Damned
King Carney has demanded, dear descendants, that we all wear masks.
I hate and despise those things. I can't breath right, they fog up my glasses and cause them to fall off.
And for a couple of months now I've heard this expert tell us masks were useless, that expert tell them they would save our lives, the expert over there say everyone should only wear this kind, and the expert from a government bureaucracy somewhere demand that we wear three face masks at all times.
If they demand that yon descendants wear face masks, fight it. I see people fiddling with their face masks, picking their nose....it's a joke, yon descendants.
Don't fall for it.
OVER THE INTERNET
(social media explains so much)
Below for one of my favorite scribes on the Internet.
TIME FOR A SMILE
#1 Headline: Soros-funded Antifa/BLM anarchists kill Coronavirus
So anyone discussing COVID-19? Anyone?
All over this country they are rioting and looting and guess what?
ONLY A FEW ARE WEARING MASKS!!!!
They all should go to jail.
There is a germ of truth in your cryptic post. I really do think these awful riots are going to take away all attention from the virus, which is already dead as I suspect.
Poor President Trump. What other horrible thing can happen during his presidency?
Well I can think of something but I won’t mention.
Well, looks like the riots have tossed Coronavirus of the DNCmedia’s table.
Times like these I’m so glad I live out in the countryside, far from the maddening (and looting) crowds. Makes it easy to isolate my old self from COVID-19, too.
Two things the drivebys will discuss this morning:
1. How this is Trump’s fault.
2. Why so many white supremacists are looting and burning down cities.
Here it is:
To All - Thread was pulled - possibly because of this comment:
Former MPD(Minneappolis police dept.) Officer Derek Chauvin Has Been Taken Into Custody In George Floyds Death, TBP wrote:
Interesting perspective: Staged Event?
Here is a comment that was removed from facebook that tells a tale that makes so much sense I had to follow it.Many thanks to yet another brilliant Freeper for firing it my way.RG. I have edited it down some and added a few things here and there.
The author begins by claiming that the officers had to be involved with something but nothing adds up.The author claims there is a possibility of more theatre here:
I think(the author not me) there is at the very least the possibility, that this was a filmed public execution of a black man by a white cop, with the purpose of creating racial tensions and driving a wedge in the growing group of anti deep state sentiment from common people, that have already been psychologically traumatized by Covid 19 fears.
(A powerful statement that could not be edited)
Racial events involving guns are all too predictable as was this event.Especially, with Trumps numbers rising in the black community.
Consider these points and contrast them to every other police brutality incident youve ever seen.
The filmed portion of the incident was about 10 minutes long. In that amount of time, three officers are holding the handcuffed George Floyd, down on the street. You only know that because of the pictures taken from across the street. You cant see the other two officers in the video because they are behind the vehicle. During 8 minutes of the entire video, the officer has his knee on George Floyds neck, which is not taught or approved by any law enforcement agency.
(after about 4 minutes much of what I have read suggests the perp would have been near death or dead)
Other than an Asian cop there is no shouting or voices by the cops,WTF,this is not normal.
Additionally, the police had no goal. They werent trying to subdue him for arrest, he was already handcuffed and all they needed to do, was place him in the back of the car. There is no plausible explanation for taking him to the ground and having three men on top of a handcuffed man, a knee placed on his neck. Mr. Floyd presented no threat and was not resisting. The only goal that there appeared to be was exactly what happened:
To be filmed brutally killing a black man.(this was an execution on film perpetrated by the four cops,intentionally for some reason we can only speculate)
Think about this, these officers did not care about being filmed, in fact the officer stared into the camera with soulless eyes and an emotionless face, reminiscent of an assassin, as he knowingly killed an American Citizen. None of the officers spoke among themselves or did they speak to Mr. Floyd. They did not respond to his pleas for life.(extremely unusual) They just sat and kneeled on him until he passed out and then waited an additional 4 minutes after Mr. Floyd lost consciousness to ensure that Mr. Floyd was dead and could not be revived.( a vivid explanation of what happened,and truly bizarre)
The bystanders are verbally communicating to the officers, that he isnt breathing. Unlike any other similar incident, you never see the officers getting on police radios. You never see or hear them calling dispatch for backup. No other police units arrive on the scene and ￼strangely enough, the crowd does not seem to grow either.
(little makes sense here,where are all the other cops,where are the people?)
Finally an ambulance is called Floyd is flopped on a gurney and taken to the hospital where he is pronounced dead.There were extenuating circumstances.(see link below) He was under the influence and did have other ailments that entered into the situation. But, after having his air cut off for as long as he did it was a fate comple.
Seems there is another side of Floyds life that has remained unexposed. Its here:
Seems Floyd was featured in at least one porn video where he and three other black men had rough sex with one girl. Its anything but art.More like rough sex than anything else. Here is a clip from the link above that also suggests that Floyds death is more complex than seen in the video.
Floyd is heard saying I cant breathe on the video, but a recently released autopsy says that the suspect did not die from asphyxiation.
The autopsy released on Friday asserts that there was no signs of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Many speculated that the officer essentially strangled Floyd by pinning his neck. But the autopsy says this is not how Floyd died.(had to be a huge contributing factor)
Instead, the autopsy attributes Floyds death to being restrained, his underlying health conditions, and any potential intoxicants in his system.
What ever happened during the arrest on Monday, it appears that we are learning more about the life of George Floyd both the good and the bad.end clip #2.
Shortly after the video(initial video of Floyd being choked) went viral, a fake Facebook page supposedly belonging to the officer, at the center of the murder appears and pictures are uploaded that say Stand your Ground and Trump 2020. A picture of the cop with a red ballcap that says Make America White Again. A friends list populated with obvious sock accounts and people clearly not his friends.
This is the same kind of fake Facebook stunt that happened with a group made to look like support for the men involved with the Ahmed Aubrey case.
(Now its looking all too contrived not to have been explicitly planned.)
Is it mere coincidence that this happens the week after race becomes a major political issue after the Biden You aint Black gaffe, started to threaten the black vote the Democrats so desperately count on?(no way this is coincidence!!)
Is there a political advantage not to arrest the officer immediately especially with the video evidence?
Is it mere coincidence that this happens right about the exact moment the COVID-19 fear campaign falls apart, and after it has psychologically traumatized the entire country and got everyone at each others throats and suicide attempts are spiking? Is it mere coincidence that this happens after the Auhmed Aubrey case... Which somehow eluded the mainstream media completely until two whole months after he was killed? When has that ever happened?(brilliant stuff here) Timing issue? Is it mere coincidence that Supreme Race Baiter Obama was making videos a couple weeks ago connecting COVID with Systemic Racism?
FINALLY....‼️‼️ this entire scene plays out with the cop car and license plate that says POLICE. The plate was perfectly framed for maximum subliminal impact. This also means he was literally just 1 foot away from the back seat of the police car. These cops thought it was smarter to kill a black man on camera, than to pick him up and move him one foot into the back of the police car.(what was the motivation to kill the perp?)
RE: Your section: Churches Reopen
Here in Alabama, the Sunday Buffet was THE thing to go to after church. You could find a buffet almost anywhere, and much of the food was Southern home-cooked heaven. Fired chicken, ribs, BBQ pork, pulled pork, meatloaf, green bean casserole, greens, fried tomatoes, banana pudding... YUM!
Well, they’re all back open, both churches and buffets, but no one’s going.
Could be the end of a 100 year old Southern tradition.
Covid is now intertwined with the antifa attacks.
#1 Headline: Soros-funded Antifa/BLM anarchists kill Coronavirus...
Barr and PDJT need to be serious, and make this Soros’s Waterloo.
Near University of Cincinnati, a cop’s helmet stopped a bullet.
1. Crush Antifas.
2. Expose, educate, reeducate the world on who they are over and over...make it Mceneny’s talking point daily.
Here is some of what we know about the officers involved in the killing of Floyd.Seems Floyd was arrested for passing a fake (counterfeit?)20 dollar bill. Problem is a big seizure of counterfeit bills from china had just been received by local Minn. authories. They were all $1.00 bills.900k worth. no twenties.
The company that Floyd worked for the Conga Latin Bistro was a suspected of money laundering.
What we know about Derek Chauvin and Tou Thao, two of the officers caught on tape in the death of George Floyd
Four officers on scene have been fired. They have not yet been officially identified by department officials.
By Andy Mannix Star Tribune MAY 26, 2020 11:25PM
Video filed by a bystander shows a Minneapolis police officer identified as Derek Chauvin with his knee on the neck of George Floyd. Floyd later died.
The Minneapolis police officer shown on video kneeling on George Floyds neck as Floyd pleaded for help, along with another officer who stood by and watched, have both been involved in use-of-force incidents over their careers.
Officer Derek Chauvin has been identified as the officer pinning down Floyd in the now-viral video, which shows Floyd saying he cant breathe repeatedly before losing consciousness. Floyd later died. Four officers on scene have been fired. They have not yet been officially identified by department officials.
Chauvin, 44, is a 19-year department veteran. Department records and news accounts show that he has been involved in several police-involved shootings over his career.
(this guy is a 19 year vetran soon to be vested in retirement WTH is he doing this stuff for?)
In 2008, Chauvin shot and wounded Ira Latrell Toles during a domestic assault call. According to a 2011 article from the Pioneer Press, Chauvin and other officers showed up to an apartment in south Minneapolis just before 2 a.m. Toles grabbed for an officers gun and Chauvin shot him in the abdomen.
In 2006, Chauvin and five others responded to a stabbing. After Wayne Reyes, 42, allegedly pulled a shotgun on the officers, one of the officers shot and killed Reyes, according to a report titled Stolen Lives from Communities United Against Police Brutality, a police watchdog nonprofit based in Minneapolis.
The other officer identified in the video is Tou Thao. According to a deposition he gave in a 2017 lawsuit, Thao started with the department as a community service officer. He went through the academy in 2009. He was laid off for two years and returned to the department in 2012.
Another of the officers, from a video of Mondays incident on Facebook.
In 2017, Lamar Ferguson sued Thao and another officer, Robert Thunder, for excessive use of force. According to the lawsuit, Ferguson and a woman who was eight months pregnant were walking home when Thao and Thunder stopped and searched them without cause. The officers handcuffed Ferguson, and Thao threw him to the ground and began punching him, while Thunder kicked him, according to the allegations.
The officers took Ferguson to the hospital for medical treatment. Afterward, they escorted Ferguson to jail wearing only his underwear and T-shirt, rejecting hospital staffs requests that he be allowed to fully dress, according to the complaint.
In a deposition, Thao said they arrested Ferguson due to an outstanding arrest warrant. He said he only punched Ferguson after one of Fergusons hands slipped out of the handcuffs.
He tries to pull away, Thao said in the deposition. And he puts his hands on me and tries to give me a stiff arm in a way to try to get me off of him. After at this point hes actively resisting arrest. He so I had no choice but to punch him. I punched him in the face. It causes him to pause a bit which gives Officer Thunder the time to come around and help.
The case settled out of court for $25,000, according to Seth Leventhal, one of Fergusons attorneys.
