The Spark that Lit the Powder Keg

George Floyd is not the reason for the rioting and looting, but his death is the spark that ignited the fire. The facts surrounding the death of George Floyd are not all in. It looks terrible judging from the videos. Having seen so many cases that are not what they seem, I prefer to wait until the investigation is completed to form a final opinion, but some things seem very clear to me.
The death of George Floyd ignited the smoldering embers of inner city people shut in too long during the Covid-19 pandemic response. People that lost jobs, lost income, have nothing to do and are having to shelter in place for weeks or months at a time were ripe for blowing up. The officers gave them the reason. 

There is no justification, however, for the looting, and the burning, and the shooting of other people. It is ludicrous to believe this is anything more than street thugs using the death of one man to justify their arson, thefts, assaults and killing of others.  

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot


In Chicago in May alone 56 people have been shot and killed, 269 shot and wounded and no one is rioting over the loss of those lives. Lori Lightfoot, the embarrassment of a Mayor of Chicago, tells the President F-U when the President rightly says this is about thugs not righteous indignation. This is a Mayor who has more black men in her city being killed than anywhere in America, and there is no outcry from anyone including her. Her example to our youth as a leader is why people continue their bad behavior as she models it for them.
The intrusive stay at home orders in the inner cities has created a powder keg. This was predictable. We cannot indefinitely lock down a nation. The media instills fear in people about Coronavirus. Wages have been lost, and people have nothing to do. They are restless, and when you combine that in areas where there are already inner city problems like gangs, and homelessness and broken families and drugs and lack of education and disdain for police, then you add the behavior we saw by police in the case of George Floyd, the spark blows that powder keg.
The rest of the country follows like lemmings, using moral outrage as an excuse to destroy people’s businesses that serve their communities, to damage the places they live and harm the people in those communities, and to attack good police officers nationwide.
Officers make millions of contacts with people every month and less than 1/10 of a percent result in any use of force. To use police brutality as a reason for this violence is a false narrative. That said, one bad act by any officer damages all of the good work 99.9% of officers do every single day. Common sense should tell officers that excessive force begins when resistance ends.
The stupidity of politicians to enact zero bail policies and to release criminals from jail has added fuel to this fire. Now what will your irresponsible policies do when we have people robbing and stealing and shooting and burning cars and buildings? Will they get zero bail and be out to pillage society again and again? 
It is the politicians who have created all of this by coddling criminals and thinking that restorative justice helps society in any way. Our elected officials have betrayed the public and this is the result.

Linda I think that you are the first person this week to tell it like it is and being 100% on target. The poor judgement politicians have created this mess. A sad moment in History.

Shitcago always has and always will be a scum hole. The mayor is probably a Ghetto Girl disciple. Furthermore I would like to know the cost and who paid for that lying sack of crap Independent Medical Examiner. We also know that the unethical bottom feeders cost more than that family could afford.

Today, it is accepted that Biden’s administration is not only inept but dangerous. While drowning in its own stupidity, Biden still insists on its success in his masterful Afghanistan withdrawal, the Covid-19 scam, and the open border over which floods of disease-infected third world illegals. This administration is dangerous to a Republic form of government; indeed, its aim is to destroy it and impose Marxism…

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Biden and his clueless stooges keep falsely and shamelessly telling the world how much they care about Human Rights. The very Human Rights that Biden and the Democrats shamelessly and repeatedly remind a flabbergasted world, how Racist Americans are. If we paraphrase Churchill’s speech to describe the State of the Union under Biden’s watch, it would look like this: “Never in the field of diplomacy have so many been betrayed by so few.”

There is great controversy and social divide over the jab issue within families and friends. What sports owners and coaches don’t realize is the fact that the American population will only allow so many moves of the goalpost before they don’t participate in supporting the attendance when a front seat at home will suffice just fine…

Beal warns us the coronavirus vaccines could cause serious illness for which there is no cure, and they could cause weird mutations in the natural world which we cannot control – which perhaps we are already seeing as we move from delta, to mu to nu… and possibly soon needing to use the Klingon alphabet. There’s a lot that could go wrong, as a result of genetic changes brought about by the lab-made sequences in the vaccines…

Here we are, ten short years later, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has become the official platform of the Democratic Party. Their hatred of our country is no longer fringe – it is now mainstream, and it controls the White House, as well as both chambers of Congress. We are not a democracy. We are not a Democratic Republic either. We are a banana republic, with Joe Biden as our Banana in Chief…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #4

I’m trying to save my husband’s life! Please, help me. What can be done to keep my husband from being put on a ventilator? – If I have T-cells in my body after recovering from COVID, is there any chance of me unknowingly being a carrier of COVID and giving it to my unvaccinated elderly parents? – I heard Dr. McCullough say that once you’ve had Covid19, you cannot get it again. Does that include all variants, ie, Delta?
