A man died tragically after being held in a savage knee-to-neck hold by a policeman. What was the officer thinking? Protests have turned to riots in several of our big cities. Why does this happen? History is a teacher but we ignore its lessons. The “we” above, however, is more of a “they.” In a nation of about 330 million, those who refuse to learn number only a few thousand: the few law enforcement officers who abuse rather than protect and serve; the elected officials who don’t police the police nor police the riotous, and even tacitly encourage violence; and

In 2019 10 unarmed black people died by police. 20 unarmed whites were killed and 89 police were murdered. Terrible BUT this is not as prevalent as we have been told. (Unless you are a cop) Follow the data NOT the media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSkmy-Y1gVU

There are many more bad doctors than bad cops but they don't work under the same scrutiny. No perfect anything and will never happen.

I have seen figures that on an annual basis a cop has 18.5 times the chance of being killed by a back man than for a black man to be killed by cop. Further more black and Hispanic cops are more likely to use lethal force against black men than white cops are!

When you try and fight a police officer, bad things can happen. The more you escalate, the tougher the police will respond. This was death by cop, plain and simple. If Mr. Clark would have gone peacefully, he’d be sitting in jail right now....

The wife and I turned on the TV last night, to get a local weather forecast. All we got, for about 30 minutes, until we turned it off in disgust, was over and over coverage of a bunch of protesters walking across the 'Crescent City Connection' inner Orleans. It was peaceful, but I asked myself, what do they think they are accomplishing? Stopping legitimate workers from getting to their jobs, is not going to gain them any support. And it's not going to bring Floyd back or get the police department eliminated. Everyone agrees that what happened in Minnesota was wrong, but people, black and whit and brown, die at the hands of police officers every day. The meme that 'black lives matter' and needs to be protested is rendered a joke, when you note the number of blacks killed by blacks every day in the US. Maybe the protesters could go protest in the faces of politicians who allow that, and let the rest of us go on about our business.

I too wonder why people in NOLA are marching in protest. Floyd had nothing to do with NLA or the NOLA police. Gauleiter Cantrell can barely veil her contempt for whites, NOLA is defined as a chocolate city and the police allow gangbangers to slaughter each other unimpeded. It is a Antifa, BLM utopia.

Remember the operations of inner city police departments have been managed by leftist and liberal Democrat politicians and police chiefs at the State and local political levels for decades. In that respect the city of Minneapolis has a very liberal Democrat Mayor and a liberal Democrat Black Police Chief. It has been the responsibility of those Democrats to ensure that their police departments conduct their policing in accordance with the law and established modern law enforcement policy. What happened between the police and George Floyd during a police encounter in Minneapolis shows that that those Democrat politicians were incompetent in preforming their duties both before the killing of Floyd occurred, and in their dealings with the “peaceful” Black rioters who then destroyed the drug and grocery stores and other critical commercial businesses that served the Black and low income “communities” there. Common sense will tell you that the Democrats both locally and in DC throwing up fraudulent political distractions designed to blame President Trump for the local police lawlessness and the resulting riots is not going to work out for the Democrats in the end.

Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown What do they all have in common? They are all 'heroes of the BLM'. They are all 'sacred black innocents' murdered by the police. Now, the other side of the story: They were all committing, or had just committed, crimes. They all had a criminal history. They were all thugs. Eric Garner: died due to violently resisting arrest, had underlying medical conditions which exacerbated his problems. Trayvon Martin: shot while assaulting a citizen. George Floyd: died due to resisting arrest, had underlying medical conditions which exacerbated his problems. Had Fentanyl and Meth in his system at time of death. Freddie Gray: died in police custody while trying to injure himself to avoid jail. Michael Brown: shot while assaulting a police officer and attempting to grab his firearm. These are the heroes of the left and the black community. Why are there no marches for David Dorn? Where is Revrun Al, where is Crumb?

President Trump was happy as heck at the news that Michael Pack, his choice for new director at the Voice of America, finally got confirmed by the Senate. It came as a sort of miracle, given the dirty, protracted battle from deep state's Obama holdovers to keep him out. It was so underhanded it involved a last-ditch Kavanaugh-style bid to smear Pack as corrupt if for nothing else to delay his Senate confirmation to eternity. It was deep state at its worst and it failed. Now, what's probably the last solid Obama bastion of deep-state government has toppled. (Snip for tweets) But if you want to know who's howlingly happy

Radicalized district attorneys in cities across America are putting violent rioters and looters back on the streets, and letting other hardened criminals walk. More than anyone, one man is responsible for this outrage: Billionaire socialist George Soros. St. Louis is a case in point. There, prosecutor Kim Gardner let 36 people arrested for looting and rioting go scot-free, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Gardner’s office used the pathetic excuse that it needed “essential evidence” from the police, implying it had none. One wonders how people caught in flagrante delicto could simply be released. The answer is, Gardner is a

President Trump, who put in a stellar leadership performance with the coronavirus crisis - recognizing the danger, rendering aid with record speed, deregulating, leading on the cure, bringing in many players, and unlike the blue-city and blue-state satraps, moving to close the operation as the curve flattened. It was Trump's classic "hotel manager" crisis management at its best. But something's gone wrong with his strange silence and ineffectual tweets with this crisis.

CNN's obnoxious Chris 'Fredo' Cuomo, who hates his job at CNN and actually told a radio host that, has now lost half his viewers in wake of the coronavirus crisis. According to the Daily Mail, it followed a series of Fredo-grade stunts. CNN host Chris Cuomo's ratings have plunged 49 percent in the two months since he announced he'd contracted coronavirus, data from Nielsen Media Research shows. Since the week of March 30, Cuomo has dropped from first in his 9pm time slot among cable news hosts to bottom of the barrel, last week averaging just 440,000 daily viewers in the age demographic prized by advertisers.

You never want a good crisis to go to waste.” That was Rahm Emanuel’s now-infamous prescription for the Democratic Party following the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Now, China’s applying that same dictum globally, as the Wuhan virus ravages nation after nation, freeing Beijing to do its mischief. For years, Americans of all political stripes operated under the delusion that China, though nominally communist, was becoming more like the West every day. Our massive, but one-sided, trade with the country would bring changes, we thought. An inevitable consumer economy in China would expand, and bring with it ideas of freedom, human rights

The COVID-19 Death Count?

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced

For the past 18 months we have seen a concerted effort to vilify the Trump administration for declaring a national emergency on the southern border and all the actions that have been taken in support of that declaration. The left continues to talk about “cages” and “family separation.” They say that all these actions were mean-spirited, racist, and xenophobic. They say it was inhumane and there was no reason to do it, so it must be about hatred toward immigrants. It has been their battle cry to demonize President Trump, the Border Patrol, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

During the event, Obama said he rejected a debate that emerged in “a little bit of chatter on the internet" about “voting versus protests, politics and participation versus civil disobedience and direct action.”“This is not an either-or.

The council is working with the state’s Department of Human Rights on a stipulated restraining order that would require some immediate changes to the police department. The order would also set up a timeline for an investigation into whether the police department participated in racial discrimination over the last 10 years.

We’ve got to move to aggressively cut off the funding of domestic terrorism. Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation.

Amid nationwide protests ignited by the police-involved killing of George Floyd early last week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that up to $150 million will be cut from the L.A. Police Department as part of relocating some $250 million from the city’s budget to fund programs in communities of color. The United States has been rocked by widespread protests demanding justice and social reforms since Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died May 25 after being pinned to the ground by the knee of a white police officer against his neck. Garcetti called Floyd’s death during a Wednesday evening press briefing “a modern-day lynching” and the
