American Cities Explode


George Floyd’s murder by Derek Chauvin while three other Minneapolis police officers did zero is an act deserving of mass protests. HOWEVER Floyd’s murder is now being used as a pretext for Marxist Antifa to spur anarchy with senseless violence, rioting and looting. If the Dems don’t stop their ideological anarchists I have a suspicion Pro-2nd Amendment property protecting will escalate. Justin Smith goes over some details that has struck this match inflaming America.

American Cities Explode

George Floyd’s Murder and Chaos Across America

It doesn’t matter whether #GeorgeFloyd was an upstanding member of society. It doesn’t matter whether blacks commit a disproportionate share of violent crimes. There is no excuse for the police to squeeze the life out of an unresisting individual. Period!”  ~ Dinesh D’Souza

 

No one finds justice served in the wake of any horrific, terrible tragedy, by burning their cities and towns down around them in the name of “peaceful protest”. Justice is not served by ignoring the due process of the law for police officers who have abused their authority and power, in a manner that can only be described as evil, no matter how justified one might believe one’s self to be in acting to mete out immediate, self-gratifying, vigilante justice. And justice absolutely was not served on Memorial Day, May 25th 2020, when a police officer ripped forty-six year old George Floyd, from the backseat of a police cruiser, and threw him to the ground and restrained him, with a known deadly hold, and pinned him by the neck until he was choked unconscious and died, as surrounding witnesses begged and pleaded for his life.

 

Floyd was an ex-convict who served five years stemming from an aggravated assault conviction in 2007, but he was trying to turn his life around, as seen in an old video, where he urges the youth of America to reject gun violence. At one point, Floyd states: “Our young are clearly lost, man, clearly lost, man. I don’t even know what to say anymore. You youngsters just going around bursting guns in crowds, kids getting killed.”

Floyd, 46, grew up in Houston, Texas, where he was known as a gifted athlete and hip-hop artist, according to the Houston Chronicle, and he was well known by the patrons of Conga Latin Bistro, where he worked security. As Luz Maria Gonzalez notes, “He’d keep us safe there”. On Tuesday, the restaurant shared a photo of Floyd in his blue security uniform, with the caption, “We’ll always remember you”.

 

George Floyd was a “gentle giant” and helpful man by all accounts, and sadly, the taking of his life, has left a little six year old girl without her father.

 

Floyd’s death came, after he supposedly “resisted” officers and was placed in handcuffs. But subsequent evidence has shown that he was not resisting or being violent, and he was not armed. He was first approached, around 8:00 pm, by four Minneapolis police officers — Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Kueng — who answered a call to investigate a possible forgery attempt and a counterfeit $20 dollar bill. What followed, at least in part, was captured in a video, that has exploded across social media sites, made by a young woman, Darnella Frazier, who was standing nearby outside the Cup Foods Market.

 

4 Murdering Minneapolis Cops (from Heavy.com)

 

[Blog Editor: Andrew McCarthy of the National Review (5/30/20 4:07 PM) adds some info to Mr. Floyd’s death that cannot be deciphered from video footage. The extra info does not help murderous cops but does add context to the whole idiocy.]

 

There on the corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue South, Officer Derek Chauvin is seen pressing his knee into George Floyd’s neck for nine long minutes, with Floyd’s face pressed so hard into the pavement his nose begins bleeding. And Floyd tearfully pleads with Chauvin: “Please, please, please, I can’t breathe. Please, man.”

 

“You got him down, man! Let him breathe at least” said one bystander in the background.

 

Someone asks, “You’re going to just sit there with your knee on his neck?”

 

One alarmed citizen exclaims, “Bro, he’s not even f###ing moving! Get off his neck!”

 

Another asks, “Did you kill him?”

 

Floyd told the officers he could not breathe twelve times, including within the first few seconds of the video. Floyd said, “I’m about to die … they’re gonna kill me”, and called out for his mother. Approximately four minutes into the video, he lost consciousness, stopped breathing and his body went limp. Forty seconds later witnesses were screaming that he was unresponsive. At least sixteen times bystanders begged the officers to take Floyd’s pulse. And all they received in return was a hard, cold, depraved indifference to a man’s life draining out beneath them.

 

Each time a concerned individual attempted to get Officer Tou Thao to check Floyd’s vitals or to stop Chauvin from choking him any further, Thao would become aggressive and combative and simply turn away from their pleas, exhibiting the same depraved indifference to a man’s life being snuffed out there on the pavement. Thao has previously had police brutality charges leveled against him, in 2017; the case settled out of court to the tune of $25,000.

 

Ms. Frazier told the Washington Post: “The police killed him, bro, right in front of everybody. He was crying, telling them like, ‘I can’t breathe’, and everything. … They killed this man.”

 

On Wednesday, May 27th, Bridgett Floyd, sister to George, said: “I would like for those officers to be charged with murder because that’s exactly what they did. They murdered my brother. He was crying for help.”

 

Representing the Floyd Family, Attorney Ben Crump observed: “It’s a ‘I can’t breathe’ again case in 2020, and it’s worse than Eric Garner in many ways because you hear the people even pleading with them, ‘Please get your knee off his neck. Have some humanity. This is a human being.'”

 

I have very nearly stated the exact words as Angela Stanton-King, Alveda King’s goddaughter, who tweeted: “Why didn’t someone stop George Floyd’s death? They should have fought at that pivotal moment. Instead of just standing there watching.” That was the time they should have been raising unholy hell, not a day later, not two and three days later and not against their own community.

 

Addressing the use of the knee on a suspect’s neck, Mylan Masson, a former Minneapolis police officer in charge of training, noted that once the officer has the individual under control, the hold is to be released. It is used until the threat has stopped. Floyd represented no threat whatsoever to anyone, as he lay prone on the ground in cuffs.

 

According to the Star-Tribune, George Kirkham, professor emeritus at the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida State University, said that placing the knee on a suspects neck is seldom taught in police academies anymore. The move has been acknowledged as risky and capable of causing brain death in a matter of a few minutes.

 

Water boils at 212 degrees, and in the aftermath of what can only be described as a callous and indifferent murder of George Floyd, Minneapolis and St Paul are exploding and burning at 1500 degrees in a violent response and riots across the area, as protests elsewhere in America unfold, from Minneapolis to Memphis, Los Angeles to Louisville, and Denver to Atlanta, even seeing barricades breached near the White House. Somewhere shortly before 9:00 CST, on May 29th, the 88th Precinct in New York came under attack by protesters, with police cruisers destroyed and multiple fires set, as reported by Bernie Kerik, former New York City Police Commissioner, to Fox News.

 

And, in fact, one of the four police officers, Derek Chauvin, was just arrested today, May 29th, and charged with third-degree murder/manslaughter, but shortly afterwards, Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News that there was enough evidence seen through a horrendous, gut-wrenching, soul-searing video to warrant a charge of second degree murder.

 

Ms. Stanton-King expressed her outrage, stating: “Choke a man to death with Your knee which we all know was intentional and you don’t get charged with 1st degree murder … How do he slide with just a manslaughter charge and 3rd degree murder?”

 

By Wednesday night, the situation had devolved to the point that Governor Tim Waltz and Mayor Jacob Frey called out the Minnesota National Guard to halt the violence that started around the 3rd Precinct Police Station, as protesters set fires and caused some massive damage to every business within a two block radius, according to CBS Minnesota. The 3rd Precinct had to be abandoned by the police and was soon overrun and completely destroyed by an angry mob.

 

More than one-hundred seventy businesses were also damaged and looted in the St Paul and “Twin Cities” area on Thursday, as the protests escalated. According to the Pioneer Press, numerous fires were set by large crowds across the city, and St Paul’s Mayor Melvin Carter noted that “the anger, the anguish, the sadness, the rage that we’re seeing in the community, it’s understandable.”

 

Disgusting and disturbing doesn’t even begin to describe what is occurring, as the left-wing interlopers of Antifa, anti-American fascists, are seen urging the destruction further, and young blacks are destroying their own neighborhoods and the very businesses owned and operated by their fellow black minority brethren and other minorities too.

 

One surely must wonder where was a similar outrage and calls to allow due process to take its course, and where were the riots, when Minneapolis Police Officer Mohammed Noor murdered Justine Damond. It’s hard not to miss the incongruity and hypocrisy of the views of the protesters, rioters and their apologists; and, with that said, the video evidence in the Floyd case is so damning that Chauvin’s arrest within four days’ time was one-hundred percent the right call, however, the charge may need to be revisited as all the evidence unfolds in the coming days.

 

Floyd’s family released a public call for an end to the violence, while also thanking all those who have actually been protesting peacefully. Speaking to the unrest, Courteney Ross, George’s girlfriend of three years, said, “I am heartbroken.”

 

Ross continued as she spoke with the Star Tribune: “Waking up this morning to see Minneapolis on fire would be something that would devastate Floyd. He loved the city. He came here [from Houston] and stayed here for the people and the opportunities. … He was about love and peace. … I want people to protest in a peaceful way.”

 

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is pursuing the murder charge against Chauvin and investigating deeper to see what charges might be forthcoming in regards to the other officers, who seemed to exhibit a disturbing and marked indifference to what was transpiring right in front of them. President Trump and Attorney General William Barr are also actively monitoring the case, and U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald and FBI Special Agent in Charge Rainer Drolshagen will be conducting the federal investigation. And, in the meantime, as of May 28th, Freeman has acknowledged that all four officers involved in Floyd’s murder are not cooperating with the investigation and are pleading their 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination.

 

Now, newly released reports, by Anna Lastra and Eric Rasmussen, indicate that there exists a high probability that Chauvin, who has had 18 complaints of police abuse placed against him during his nineteen year career, knew Floyd from the El Nuevo Rodeo Nightclub, where they both had previously worked security for Maya Santamaria. According to Santamaria, Chauvin worked there for 17 years, as outside security, while Floyd worked as inside security. This certainly should be raising some eyebrows and demanding an intense bit of scrutiny and deeper investigation.

 

Some have suggested that we need to know what happened in the hour before the video was made, but it doesn’t really matter. Even if Floyd had allegedly committed a bank robbery or a murder in that time frame, police all across the nation take down and capture violent murderers every day without killing them in the process.

 

Yes, most police officers are outstanding, good and decent and honorable men and women, and they normally have a rough job and are asked to do unimaginably tough things, as they carry out their duty to “protect and serve” the community, that has hired them and where they usually also live. That same duty also extends to suspects, especially suspects in non-violent crimes, and especially when a suspect is cooperating and not resisting, as was the case with George Floyd. Their duty demands that they subdue and arrest suspects, in such a case, without taking the person’s life in the process.

 

Tragic as this case is, it still is not a free license to loot and destroy, simply because people are angry, and not one single criminal looter should be given a pass from any misplaced sense of justice, to assuage the outrage that may be genuinely felt by many, since many other outraged citizens have, in fact, expressed themselves angrily, loudly and peacefully.

 

At the same time, these police officers who set themselves up as judge, jury and executioners of George Floyd must pay for their gross negligence, their lack of professionalism and compassion, and their inexcusable depraved indifference to the distress Floyd’s mind and body experienced, as he knew his death was imminent. Not only did they prevent a female EMT from trying to save Floyd’s life, but for nearly 5 long minutes after warnings from witnesses, Chauvin kept his knee pressed on his windpipe, as all the officers knew Floyd was unconscious, was not breathing and that his body had gone limp. If the witnesses could so readily see that Floyd was dying, the officers had to have also known as well, and yet, they denied him oxygen, never attempted CPR, never took his pulse and never tried to save his life. The level of inhumane treatment in this case that took George Floyd’s life demands criminal charges for the other officers involved and prosecutions that end with hefty prison sentences for all four officers.

 

These officers failed to live up to anything remotely associated with simply being a good human being. Any further revelations will not change the simple truth, that with just a little more care and a sense of urgency and some common sense, one check of Floyd’s vitals at the first sign of distress, George Floyd would still be alive. Even sadder, it seems the price of a man’s life today sets at twenty dollars.

Reliving the Fall of Rome?


Elsa Schieder from WorldTruthSummit.com

Intro to ‘Reliving the Fall of Rome?’

Intro by John R. Houk

Intro date: 6/22/15

Updated: 6/22/15 4:10 PM CT

 

Elsa Schieder Ph.D. is a Liberal/Progressive academic from Canada. The appellation of the word “Liberal” usually means she is the enemy as far as my political spectrum goes. However I have to say she is a Liberal I admire.

Dr. Schieder (I believe she prefers Dr. Zee) is one of the few Liberals that gets it about the threat of Islam (she would probably prefer Radical Islam) to Western Civilization. The reality of life is that all sides of the Western political spectrum should be concerned of just how anti-Western and in my perspective Anti-Christian and Anti-Jewish.

Dr. Schieder is a busy gal. I know her from the World Truth Summit is a forum for prominent Counterjihad writers to expose Islam. She is also a bit of a poet (which is beyond my barbarian expertise), a Blogger, a critical thinker (Idea Emporium) and probably more pans in the fire than I know.

I’m on Dr. Schieder’s email list. Her 6/21 email has observations about the West in which I wholly agree. She entitles it “Reliving the Fall of Rome?” After you read I think you may agree a better title would have been from her own words – “Brain Wreck”.

Dr. Schieder precedes her thoughts with some poetry to music videos relating to peaceful unity, the idiocy of Islamic hatred and a somewhat ethereal poem about YOU being the wild card to effect global chaos. However I am more interested in her thoughts about reliving world leaders allowing the destruction of the fabric of society. Thus I am placing the videos at the end rather than the beginning.

Reliving the Fall of Rome?

By Elsa Schieder PhD

Sent: 6/21/2015 6:15 AM

Sometimes I feel I’m living through the fall of Rome. More on that in a bit. First, something that’s not on the idea side. 3 songs – one on what we’d love to have (The Garden), one on what we’re up against (Too Many Heads Off), and one on the role of the joker (The Joker is Wild). So 3 songs, and then back to Rome, Nero and the present.

Sometimes I feel I’m living through the fall of Rome. I remember reading about Nero fiddling, and about huge spectacles held to keep Roman citizens happy – gladiators killing each other, Christians thrown to lions.

And now I’m living through stories in the news that make no sense to me, with my care for facts – American blacks rioting and a president siding with the rioters when a white cop shoots a black thief, though there is massive evidence that the cop was more than fair. Islamic State – beheadings, sex slavery, ongoing suicide murdering – and the ongoing denial by many people in the West that Islamic State, which quotes from Islamic texts, is Islamic. The stories are just too insane.

And then there is the massive influx into Europe and the States of people whose Islamic ideology favors destroying every ideology but theirs, destroying any ideology that is pro male female equality, pro-democracy, pro the acceptance of other religions.

It makes no sense. If this were a dream, I would tell myself to wake up.

Instead, a huge part of me just cannot believe that what is happening could possibly be happening.

Another part asks: how does one stop this? What more can I do to turn the tide?

Quite an expression – to turn the tide!! Quite something to even think of doing.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about BrainWreck – the wrecking of people’s brains in the West. It goes with something I’ve thought and written a lot about – Think or Sink: We Think or the West Sinks.

How to deal with wrecked brains – like the brains of the politically correct? Like the brains of those who refuse to look at the content of Islam and instead intone “all cultures are equal”? In fact, do we deal with such brainwrecked people? Or do we concentrate on people with un-wrecked – or anyway, relatively unwrecked – brains?

Something to think about.

By the way, how do you like the term, brainwrecked – rather than the milder term, politically correct? Does the term resonate for you?

Here’s my viewpoint. I understand the value of using terms people know. I also understand the value of using a new term for something different.

Politically correct is the term for a mindset. Brain wreck is a term for something different: what’s needed inside the brain for a person to be politically correct. Inside the politically correct: a brain wreck.

And finally, before ending, an announcement: I’m going to try something new. A short Wednesday video – 5 min max. Why Wednesday? It’s mid-week. Far away enough from the weekend before, and the weekend coming. My guess: people may have a few minutes. The goal: to give something not just to watch, but to share.

And now, all the best to all of us who care and dare,

Elsa

PS. More on brainwrecked brains. Here’s a great short video on the content of Islamic texts and the Islamic response: . Once again, inside the brain, a brain wreck.

PPS. By the way, if you like any of the songs, please share. My sense: something is blocking our having a music of our own. And of course, if you like any of the ideas, please also share those.

And finally, something new.
