  • Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College – Appeal Brief Filed – NAACP Supporting College

    Legal Insurrection ^ | June 5, 2020 | William A. Jacobson
    Oberlin College and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo have filed their Appeal Brief (pdf.) in the Gibson’s Bakery case. The NAACP also has filed an Amicus Brief (pdf.) in support of the college. Full copies of both briefs are at the bottom of this post. The Oberlin College Brief is redacted because some information was filed under seal (the information at issue in the various motions to unseal we previously covered). It’s not clear whether any Amicus Briefs will be filed supporting the Gibsons, to my knowledge no one is coming to their assistance...The NAACP Amicus Brief is the easiest...

  • What I believe will come out of the protests.

    06/05/2020 6:21:03 PM PDT · by Jonty30 · 29 replies
    Liberals tend to favour government fines and removal of government services for unpaid fines, instead of upfront enforcement of the law. What I believe will happen is that liberals will create more offenses and those offenses will be enforced with fines Unpaid fines will result in an inability to get driver licenses or criminal checks. The net effect will be to make it even harder for blacks to join society.

    VIDEO There was quite a bit of shock today when it was announced that the unemployment rate DECLINED in May despite most economists predicting it would rise to 20%. Here are a few shocked reactions to the May jobs report. My favorite reaction is from the angry guy who is whining that the unemployment really rose but that the stats were faked by the Labor Department.

    Two videos of him, below, making the same basic points. He's on shows hosted by people you will not like (Amanapour, Cooper), but he's worth listening to. His basic notion is this: American education has long been absurdly overpriced. He notes this is the only industry in America which has yet to face significant pressures to cost-cut. He says that parents are getting to see what their $76,000 per year is buying them-- because now they can see the witless profs lecturing to their kids on the Zoom sessions they have online. And parents are thinking: "This is worthless. I...

    If you’re not sick, everytime you put your mask on, the same masks worn by ANTIFA terrorists, you are allowing them to control you. From the middle of March until just about 9 days ago, there was one persistent and consistent message drilled into our heads around the clock – it’s not safe to go outside. COVID-19 was spreading faster than it could be contained, they said, and the only remedy was a total lockdown of the economy, and of the people. Breathless news updates from Bill Gates, CNN, the CDC, the WHO, Fauci and Birx made us to believe...

    The news media are trying to rationalize violent riots. CBS News published a piece headlined, “Protests underscore worsening racial wealth gaps: ‘Justifiable anger.’” Authors Aimee Picchi and Irina Ivanova exploited the murder of George Floyd to suggest that the “nationwide protests” have also drawn “attention to the stark socioeconomic differences between black and white Americans.”

    The hypocrisy of mega-rich celebrities calling for reparations for slavery is astonishing. Black Entertainment Television Founder Robert Johnson, as summarized by CNBC, said that the “U.S. government should provide $14 trillion of reparations for slavery to help reduce racial inequality.” He’s currently worth an estimated $550 million.

    Politico ^ | 6/02/20 | Alex Isenstadt
    Republican National Committee officials are considering Nashville and other locations as potential sites for the GOP convention amid a standoff with North Carolina over whether it will allow the party to hold it in Charlotte as planned. Party officials are expected to make a trip to Nashville later this week, likely Thursday or Friday, according to a person familiar with the deliberations. Nashville is one of several locations in which Republicans are expressing interest. Others include Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Georgia. All of the prospective sites have directly expressed interest in hosting the convention, and party officials...

  • INSURRECTION: Pallets of bricks are being pre-staged in flashpoint cities across the country

    05/31/2020 12:00:03 PM PDT · by MassMinuteman · 42 replies
    Reports from citizen journalists continue to spread on social media that indicate palletted bricks have been strategically placed within known riot locations across the country. These pre-staged stockpiles have been documented in several flashpoint cities including Minneapolis, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle and Fayetteville, NC. In most cases, the bricks have been placed right along demonstration routes.What organization is behind this effort to effectively arm demonstrators with the steady supply of projectiles being used to spread injury, destruction, and in at least one case, possibly death?One thing's for sure, those responsible for it have access to real money and logistics.

    ...Good news for looters, you can find some overpriced junk with Teigen's name on it at Target....Maybe if Target stopped doing business with radical lefty celebs who help looters and rioters, its stores would be less likely to be looted. But Vladimir knew what he was talking about. Corporate America can't and won't stop following the lead of the radical lefties...Keep doubling down on social justice and eventually you'll run out of stores. When you make America a target, you also make yourself a target.

    The Grumpy Economist ^ | May 29, 2020 | John H. Cochrane
    As the economy recovers, public policy faces an inevitable dilemma. How do we wean the economy from support? This comes to the head with federal support for unemployment insurance -- $600 per week, set to expire at the end of July. The unemployment rate will still be high in July. Congress seems to have largely given up, in public, of thinking clearly about the economic purpose of policies, and now the discussion is entirely in terms of who deserves additional "help," often in moral terms -- "people" vs "corporations," various regions, sizes of business, "communities," and so on. How can...

    Yesterday, shops were broken into and looted, and a police station in the city was set ablaze. Police used tear gas and even arrested a CNN reporter. The situation is very serious, but the intention of some “protesters” or should I say, looters had nothing to do with the police brutality! There was a video of one man down on the ground being treated by police outside of business last night. The man was reportedly shot after trying to loot a pawn shop. Also it safe to say that they completely destroyed the city and especially the black neighborhoods! To...
