Just remember that there are plenty of non-whites who are also not buying the race-baiting bravo sierra.

The division is being engineered by the leftists.

Miss Swimsuit UK, 23, was stripped of her title and deleted from the competition's website after she posted 'All Lives Matter' on Farcebook

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8532239/Miss-Swimsuit-UK-23-stripped-title-posted-Lives-Matter.html



Her post said: 'This is ridiculous now. It HAS to STOP. ALL lives matter, if you look deeply into statistics, more UNARMED WHITE people DIED than BLACK last year. Yes some people may say George Floyd died when he was innocent but I am yet to see hard evidence of this. There is video footage of him refusing to get out of his car which warrants for the police officers to use whatever means necessary to restrain the person. Innocent people are dying because of the riots. What for?'

Miss Swimsuit UK quickly de-crowned the fitness queen, deleting all traces of Miss Archer-Jones from their website. Miss Swimsuit UK quickly disassociated with Miss Archer-Jones as they support the Black Lives Matter campaign.

Maybe they can put the crown on the dude who posed for Sports Illustrated's latest swimsuit issue.

I'm pretty sure it has an opinion that is more politically correctivist.

The Global Oligarchs Have Merged With The Global Communists


Well, it’s finally happened.

The global oligarchy has now merged with the global communists, and the only losers, will be the vast majority of the planet’s masses and middle class.

When one sees major American corporate icons such as the NBA kow-towing to Communist China and their sensibilities, or when Communist China starts passing global laws such as their National Security Law § 38 which subjects any and all global citizens to arrest and incarceration for life, merely for speaking out and/or criticizing the state, you know the game is over, and the jig is up.

The same thing happened at the end of the Soviet Union, when that nation state’s leaders and their oligarch minions merged in order to perfect and steal their world’s wealth while being protected by the intelligentsia, military, and police, while rupturing the state like a virus.

The same thing is now happening on a global scale.

The world’s wealthiest simply don’t care about the world’s masses, and they have nothing to fear from the state.

The blame squarely falls on the Anti-Trust Divisions of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, who for years (mainly under the Obama administration) allowed Big Tech and other massive monopolies to grow so large and uncontrollable, that they can literally depose or challenge any type of governmental activity to curtail their anti-competitive or dangerous monopoly power to completely and totally dominate the masses.

Trump’s Anti-Trust Divisions are no less to blame since we are now 3.5 years into his administration, and he hasn’t done anything about this, either (for him, it seems that swelling the economy with unregulated oligarch wealth/power is better than keeping these oligarchs honest, with a consequently smaller Dow Jones Industrial Average).

The head of the Antitrust Division is an Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust appointed by the President of the United States. Since September 2017, the position of Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust has been held by Makan Delrahim. The heads of the FTC Antitrust Division are also equally useless, ineffective, arrogant, and clueless.

True enough, all of those politicians who promised that they would “take on” various monopolies have all “kissed the ring” and instead taken billions of dollars in lobbying costs, consulting fees, speaker fees, and other mechanisms of legalized bribery of state/government officials, all at the expense of the masses and their children.

Meanwhile they are all in the process of riding off into the sunset, while the rest of the world starves and dies off from coronavirus and other possibly man-made/oligarch made/state made laboratory diseases.

Perhaps this coronavirus was just a “dry run,” and the real plague killing off the majority of the global population is yet to come, while the wealthy oligarchs “stay home” because they can, similar to how bank robbers like to see what the speed of the cops will be by staging a break-in.

Either way, what the American people have to realize, is that their elected officials will not protect them, and neither will their favorite multi-national corporations/oligarchs, either.

They’ve chosen whose side they’re on, and it’s not yours.

Like former President George W. Bush once said while addressing his wealthiest donors, “This is an impressive crowd. The haves and the have mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base.”

It seems like global, godless, totalitarian government, is just around the corner (months, not years) unless the masses of the world, and especially America, wake up.

Just being white is racist. Because this is the viewpoint of some very racist people. Actually I believe it's just an attempt by a few evil people to try and create racist division. Unfortunately there are some idiots who fall for these things.

Never Give The Mob An Inch: Nothing You Do Will Ever Be Enough, So Stop Trying To Appease Them

By Christopher Barron | Special Contributor | July 16, 2020 3:04PM


Frankly, most Americans – of all political stripes – don’t really care if we move statues of Confederates to battlefields and cemeteries. If the war on statues was really just about removing monuments to men only known for rebelling against the United States of America – then I think we could have built a pretty large national consensus in short order and the statues could be lawfully moved.
The Left Isn’t Looking For National Consensus
The truth is, however, that the left isn’t looking for a national consensus, which is why – moving forward – we shouldn’t agree to give the mob even an inch. Nothing we do will ever be enough, so it is time we stop appeasing them.
Demands to remove Confederate statues soon became demands to remove statues of Christopher Columbus. Those demands morphed into demands to take down statues of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Mount Rushmore.
Incredibly, even statues of Abraham Lincoln are now under attack.
The demands to topple statues of Jefferson and Washington come just three short years after the main stream media lampooned President Trump for suggesting that the statue warriors would eventually go after our Founding Fathers. The main stream media assured us that “statues of Washington and Jefferson aren’t next.”
In 2016, Senator Bernie Sanders praised Mount Rushmore, saying it made him, “proud to be an American.”

The NFL Is on the Brink

1595071987864.png


The National Football League celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This should be a time of self-congratulation for the brutal sport, which has no similar counterpart outside the United States.


The NFL's megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America's national sports event.

The league has survived all sorts of crises in the past. It was one of the first professional sports to integrate its teams, doing so in the 1920s. But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn't reintegrate until the mid-'40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially-blind meritocracy.

The NFL successfully absorbed the rival American Football League in 1966. So far, the NFL has avoided federal safety regulations that could curb the incidence of physical trauma inherent in the sport.

The league's owners are a cross-section of America's most successful entrepreneurs and old-money families -- many of them politically well-connected.

Yet the NFL is in deep trouble like never before.

In 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem. He claimed he was protesting the treatment of African Americans.

Kaepernick was an odd revolutionary. His mother is white, his father is an African American of Ghanaian-Nigerian ancestry, and he was raised by a middle-class white couple. Kaepernick's only prior controversy was being accused by another player of using the N-word. He denied it but was still fined by the league.


CARTOONS | Gary Varvel
View Cartoon
Kaepernick's rejection of "The Star-Spangled Banner" eventually spread throughout the NFL. Even though he was a backup quarterback, Kaepernick became a resistance idol. Soon he was a corporate ad man pitching Nike sneakers.

Then game attendance fell. So did television viewership. Apparently, lots of fans had no desire to spend their Sundays watching 20-something multimillionaires lecture them that the American flag was not worth honoring.

In 2018, the league belatedly banned players from kneeling for the national anthem. By then, Kaepernick had left football and become a megaphone for even more corporate sponsors.

Now the NFL is in the news amid national protests and violence following the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police.

The inspirational song "Lift Every Voice and Sing" -- also known as the Black national anthem -- will be played before every game of the first week of the season. The league is considering letting players wear protest insignia on their helmets or jerseys. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell apologized to players for not listening to them about racism.

Yet the NFL capitulation poses fundamental problems for the league. It has now essentially green-lighted the sort of activism that in the last few years has been eating away its profits.


NFL owners and head coaches are almost all white. But nearly three-quarters of the players are black. Those who play the game obviously want to see more diversity in coaching and ownership.

In a culture so obsessed with identity politics, is it the players or the owners and coaches (or both) who do not "look like America"?

Bronson Stocking

Given that about 13 percent of the U.S. population is Black, and given that the Black Lives Matter movement embraces concepts like proportional representation, today's NFL teams hardly qualify as diverse. Social activists might argue that the league should mentor and recruit more Latinos, Asian Americans and Native Americans to better reflect their percentages of our diverse national population.

Perhaps an NFL compromise could ensure that 30 percent of coaches and owners are nonwhite, thus reflecting current U.S. demography. But then, in reciprocity, the players would match such mandatory demographic diversity -- leading to Native Americans, Latinos, Asians, whites and those of mixed ancestry accounting for 87 percent of the player population. The NBA might also take note.

This progressive model of proportional representation could also apply to overrepresented white athletes in hockey, tennis, golf and swimming -- sports faulted by identity politics groups as being unfairly overrepresented by whites.

Obviously, such racial gerrymandering will not happen because fans value meritocracy over ethnic affiliations.

Or at least they did.

If the multibillion-dollar NFL decides that multimillionaire players have no obligation to stand to honor a collective national anthem, and that there will be separate anthems and politicized uniforms, then millions of Americans will quietly shrug and change the channel.

And that silent protest will make the 2016-17 anthem protest look like child's play.

Spin zone: 63% say media biased, agree with Bari Weiss rip on New York Times

Not only is the political media biased, but it’s sending consumers searching for “news that is accurate, opinions that are vital and debate that is sincere,” according to a new survey that polled on a quote pulled from the resignation letter of the New York Times’s Bari Weiss.


The latest Rasmussen Reports survey found continued dismissal of the media as biased, twice as much by Republicans, 87%, than Democrats, 42%.

It said that 63% “believe most major news organizations in this country have their own political agenda." Just 27% said news organizations “generally remain impartial.”

The poll followed the resignation of Weiss earlier this week. She issued a scathing letter that said the New York Times has caught clickbait fever and writes only for the liberal audience.

She wrote, “Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative.”

Of her line that the American public, as a result, is searching for more accurate news, 58% agreed, said Rasmussen.

What’s more, nearly half of likely voters said the media is trying to block President Trump’s agenda. “Just 30% of voters trust the political news they’re getting, and 44% believe most reporters are trying to block President Trump’s agenda. By contrast, 48% thought most reporters were trying to help President Obama pass his agenda in 2010," read the analysis.

I don't need to read this beyond the title. I've been saying this all along. They won't stop, they won't negotiate, they'll never be satisfied and they won't stop coming after us until they're dead, or we are! Finally people are starting to understand that!

They are Commies! They’ve been at this since the early twentieth century. We all need to realize it will not go away. We are in a war for the soul of humanity. It will be a Marxist authoritarian slave state or it will be Freedom. Take your pick and prepare yourself for battle. No matter how old you are, you’re in it, so fight any way you can. Use your brain and don’t give in.

Cut your cable to DEFUND the nba, nfl, mlb crapcar etc.

Just talked to a friend this week. His neighbor sells Amish built storage sheds. Went from 10-15 a month to 60-75 a month sense the lock down began. Cleaning out the garage so they can park the cars inside. Home office. Man / Woman shed etc.......

My guess is as people are staying home they are finding out cooking is not hat hard and the savings is paying for a lot of things they never expected like higher end gas grills, patio furniture, home upgrades etc. They also will have extra time without a commute so things like bicycles, camping, hiking, photography & outdoor activities / markets should do well.

I can guarantee you they won't be shooting this guy in the back of the head kneeling in front of a mass grave. It will probably be the other way around. I may be older but I'm not that old and remain very dangerous and quite able to deliver the hurt

Any way we can say FU to the overlords is good. The more you can do for yourself is great. Disconnecting from their indoctrination and programming channels is paramount.

Seek out quality products that do not push an agenda. After all what business are they in?
Will I even own another pair of Nike's? Nope.
Never owned a pair of Oakley sunglasses. I had Smith & Wesson shooting glasses.
Vote with your wallet & seek out unique products, hopefully made locally as much as possible.

That’s the spirit! They might end up killing me, but I’m going to try to make sure I’m shooting back at those bastards while they’re killing me. I’m like you, I won’t be kneeling with my head down and hands tied, over a big hole in the ground and I won’t get on the box-car going to the gulag.

Yeah, rereading your post makes me think about The Borg, from Star Trek or The Terminator. They just keep coming, like an unstoppable force and have to be destroyed. You can not negotiate or reason with them. There is nobody there to reason with. They are programmed to do one thing, any way they can do it and that is to destroy what is and they don’t really know what they are destroying or why they are destroying it. They don’t even really know or care what will replace the current system, it doesn’t matter. We are effectively fighting the equivalent of The Borg or The Terminator. Something to keep in mind at all times.

Oregon AG sues feds over arrests of Portland protesters



Zane Sparling Saturday, July 18, 2020


Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum announced the lawsuit and an investigation on July 17.

PMG PHOTO: JONATHAN HOUSE - Department of Homeland Security officers arrests a Portland protester during a demonstration on Friday, July 17, near the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt federal building in downtown Portland.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum will take the feds to court — alleging that law enforcement officers working for several national agencies arrested local demonstrators without probable cause.

Rosenblum announced the lawsuit just before 10 p.m. on Friday, July 17, saying the legal action would seek a restraining order preventing further arrests from being made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Federal Protection Service.

PMG FILE PHOTO - Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is siding with Oregon leaders demanding that federal authorities stop interfering with Portland protests.



"The current escalation of fear and violence in downtown Portland is being driven by federal law enforcement tactics that are entirely unnecessary and out of character with the Oregon way," the A.G. said in a statement. "These tactics must stop."
Her office and the Multnomah County District Attorney also will launch a new state criminal investigation into the injuries inflicted on Donavan LaBella, a 26-year-old protester who was shot in the head by an impact munition fired by federal police on July 11.
LaBella was holding a boombox and standing across the street from the federal courthouse when he was fired on by officers. The incident shattered bones in his face, requiring major surgery, according to the young man's mother.






PMG PHOTO: JONATHAN HOUSE - A federal police officer sends a plume of pepper spray into a crowd of protesters during a demonstration in downtown Portland on Friday, July 17.

Rosenblum said she also is concerned with a spate of mysterious snatch-and-grab arrests involving federal officers in unmarked vans. Federal police have made more than a dozen arrests since they were called into Portland by President Donald Trump — but in one particularly high-profile incident described by OPB, they reportedly detained a protester for several hours for simply walking home from a rally.


The Nation reports that a Customs and Border patrol SWAT team known as the Border Patrol Tactical Unit, as well as the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group, were involved in the mysterious arrests.
U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon Billy J. Williams also has vowed to investigate both the arrest of Portlanders pulled into unmarked cars and LaBella's injuries, but that hasn't satisfied a brigade of ranking Oregon politicos, who have called for the feds to either leave Portland or disengage from policing protests.
Rosenblum said the presence of federal police had drawn more demonstrators into the streets and infringed on their First Amendment right to free speech.
"The federal administration has chosen Portland to use their scare tactics to stop our residents from protesting police brutality and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement," she said. "If this can happen here in Portland, it can happen anywhere."

'Secret police force': Feds reportedly pull Portland protesters into unmarked vehicles, stirring outrage


Federal law enforcement officers have used unmarked vehicles to detain protesters in Portland, according to news reports and at least one protester who spoke to USA TODAY.

Videos shared online show officers driving up to people, detaining them without explanation, then driving off, Oregon Public Broadcastingfirst reported. The ACLU filed a lawsuit Friday evening to try and end what it called "lawlessness" on the streets of Portland.

The lawsuit — the first of several that the ACLU said is to be filed against the Trump administration in Portland — seeks to block the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies from attacking journalists and legal observers at protests.

"Federal agents are terrorizing the community, threatening lives, and relentlessly attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality," the ACLU said in a tweet. "This is not law and order. This is lawlessness — and it must be stopped."


Conner O’Shea, 30, a Portland resident who’s been attending protests for almost two months, told USA Today that early Thursday morning, around 2 a.m. he and a friend had left protests downtown and were walking back to their car when they were suddenly pursued by men who they believed to be federal agents.

O’Shea said after being warned by other protesters that federal agents were driving around in unmarked vans "snatching people," a van pulled over to the side walk and “four of five dudes in camo jump out and start charging at us.”


Both O'Shea and his friend ran in opposite directions. O’Shea did not see any sort of identifying markers on the men — badges or numbers or words on their camouflage uniforms. O’Shea managed to get away, and was later picked up by another friend and driven back home. But his friend Mark Pettibone, 29, has told media he was arrested and booked by federal agents, a story O’Shea confirmed.


“Nothing so far has been as scary as this,” O’Shea said. “Even with cars speeding around protesters (during marches), nothing has come close to how terrified I was the other night.

Pettibone told the Washington Post that officers placed him in a holding cell in a federal courthouse, where he was read his Miranda rights. After Pettibone, who did not respond to calls from USA TODAY, declined to answer questions, he was released, he told the Post.

In a statement Friday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed that it detained a protester but disputed accounts that it did so without reason. The agency, which did not name Pettibone, said agents had information about a person suspected of assaulting federal agents or destroying federal property.

"Once CBP agents approached the suspect, a large and violent mob moved towards their location. For everyone's safety, CBP agents quickly moved the suspect to a safer location for further questioning," the department said, adding that agents identified themselves and were wearing the agency's insignia.

The statement did not address the use of unmarked vans.



Protests in Oregon's largest city following the police killing of George Floyd have continued for 47 days. The Trump administration has sent federal officers from multiple agencies to the city, and tensions escalated after an officer with the U.S. Marshals Service fired a less-lethal round at a protester’s head on July 11, critically injuring him.

The heavy federal presence has drawn criticisms from Democratic lawmakers, local leaders and civil rights groups. House speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted that "Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped."


Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, compared the unidentified federal officers to a "secret police force." Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, called the incident involving Pettibone "chilling," and Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, described it as "authoritarian."

Merkley and other lawmakers from Oregon are asking the inspectors general of the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security to investigate, decrying the “unrequested presence and violent actions” of federal officers in Portland.

“The jarring reports of federal law enforcement officers grabbing peaceful protesters off the street should alarm every single American. This is not the way a government operates in a functioning democracy,” Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Oregon, said in a statement.


A spokeswoman for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Border Patrol agents have been deployed to Portland to protect federal property amid ongoing protests.

"While the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) respects every American’s right to protest peacefully, violence and civil unrest will not be tolerated. Violent anarchists have organized events in Portland over the last several weeks with willful intent to damage and destroy federal property, as well as injure federal officers and agents. These criminal actions will not be tolerated," the agency said.


However, officers appeared to detain people who weren’t near federal property, and it isn't clear that all of those being arrested had committed a crime, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.

O’Shea called the situation an “insane escalation” in a city that’s seen more than 50 consecutive nights of Black Lives Matter protests.

“The feds have been ramping up their brutality, but I didn’t think this was gonna happen,” O’Shea said. “After the other night it was like, ‘OK, this is a testing ground for federal occupation of cities.’ This is just furthering the weird authoritarian fantasy (President Donald) Trump is living in.

State officials in Oregon are keeping an eye on the situation.

"If media reports of their actions are accurate, federal officers arresting Oregonians without probable cause is extraordinarily concerning and a violation of their civil liberties and constitutional rights," said Charles Boyle, deputy communications director for Oregon Gov. Kate Brown.






On Thursday night, federal officers fired rounds and deployed tear gas to break up a crowd of a few hundred people gathered near the federal courthouse, according to The Oregonian. Some protesters remained in the area early Friday and were detained, but it was unclear how many arrests were made by either Portland police or federal officers, the newspaper reported.

Stephen Vladeck, a constitutional law expert at the University of Texas School of Law, said the most important takeaway from the Portland situation is that “we should not be allergic to the idea that federal officers are allowed to enforce federal laws in our cities. What we should be allergic to is federal officers abusing their authority by arresting protesters who have broken no laws, and doing so in a manner in which it’s not clear what they were arrested for or by what authority.


“The critical question we should all be asking is, which one of those two scenarios are we talking about in Portland?”

Vladeck wrote extensively about the situation Friday. Many more details are needed, he said, to fully understand what happened and the legal implications of it.

President Donald Trump declared victory at a news conference on Monday, praising efforts by federal officers to address violence in the city, which he said was "totally out of control."

"We’ve done a great job in Portland," Trump said. "I guess, we have many people right now in jail, and we very much quelled it. And if it starts again, we’ll quell it again very easily. It’s not hard to do if you know what you’re doing."

Brown, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and other local leaders have said they didn’t ask for help from federal law enforcement and have asked them to leave.

"We’re aware that they’re here," Wheeler said on Twitter. "We wish they weren’t."

Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf also drew criticism from local leaders when he visited the city Thursday hours after calling the protesters “violent anarchists."

"I told Acting Secretary Wolf that the federal government should remove all federal officers from our streets. His response showed me he is on a mission to provoke confrontation for political purposes," Brown said in a tweet. "He is putting both Oregonians and local law enforcement officers in harm’s way."


In tweets over the past weeks, Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said Border Patrol agents were assaulted by protesters who threw rocks and used baseball bats to break down the doors of the federal courthouse in Portland. Morgan said the agents “deployed less than lethal force.”

“Criminals, armed with weapons, continue to organize attacks on Federal property in Portland,” Morgan tweeted Thursday, echoing the president’s language. The Trump administration “is committed to supporting law enforcement officers, maintaining law & order, and protecting Americans.”

'Secret police force': Feds reportedly pull Portland protesters into unmarked vehicles, stirring outrage


Federal law enforcement officers have used unmarked vehicles to detain protesters in Portland, according to news reports and at least one protester who spoke to USA TODAY.

Videos shared online show officers driving up to people, detaining them without explanation, then driving off, Oregon Public Broadcastingfirst reported. The ACLU filed a lawsuit Friday evening to try and end what it called "lawlessness" on the streets of Portland.

The lawsuit — the first of several that the ACLU said is to be filed against the Trump administration in Portland — seeks to block the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies from attacking journalists and legal observers at protests.

"Federal agents are terrorizing the community, threatening lives, and relentlessly attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality," the ACLU said in a tweet. "This is not law and order. This is lawlessness — and it must be stopped."


Conner O’Shea, 30, a Portland resident who’s been attending protests for almost two months, told USA Today that early Thursday morning, around 2 a.m. he and a friend had left protests downtown and were walking back to their car when they were suddenly pursued by men who they believed to be federal agents.

O’Shea said after being warned by other protesters that federal agents were driving around in unmarked vans "snatching people," a van pulled over to the side walk and “four of five dudes in camo jump out and start charging at us.”


Both O'Shea and his friend ran in opposite directions. O’Shea did not see any sort of identifying markers on the men — badges or numbers or words on their camouflage uniforms. O’Shea managed to get away, and was later picked up by another friend and driven back home. But his friend Mark Pettibone, 29, has told media he was arrested and booked by federal agents, a story O’Shea confirmed.


“Nothing so far has been as scary as this,” O’Shea said. “Even with cars speeding around protesters (during marches), nothing has come close to how terrified I was the other night.

Pettibone told the Washington Post that officers placed him in a holding cell in a federal courthouse, where he was read his Miranda rights. After Pettibone, who did not respond to calls from USA TODAY, declined to answer questions, he was released, he told the Post.

In a statement Friday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed that it detained a protester but disputed accounts that it did so without reason. The agency, which did not name Pettibone, said agents had information about a person suspected of assaulting federal agents or destroying federal property.

"Once CBP agents approached the suspect, a large and violent mob moved towards their location. For everyone's safety, CBP agents quickly moved the suspect to a safer location for further questioning," the department said, adding that agents identified themselves and were wearing the agency's insignia.

The statement did not address the use of unmarked vans.



Protests in Oregon's largest city following the police killing of George Floyd have continued for 47 days. The Trump administration has sent federal officers from multiple agencies to the city, and tensions escalated after an officer with the U.S. Marshals Service fired a less-lethal round at a protester’s head on July 11, critically injuring him.

Well ya know, someone needs to restore law and order to America's cities. In this case these guys are taking out the Zionist communist Bolshevik infiltrators of America.

Please save the 'modern Gestapo' analogy BS, this is the polar opposite and these two treasonous, tyrannical cretins can kiss my pasty white ass!!!

'Boogaloo' on the loose: Experts warn Congress about extremism on the right

Yeah, that's right. Never mind those leftists who are burning down our cities....

https://www.yahoo.com/news/boogaloo...s-about-extremism-on-the-right-195350624.html

Authorities who study extremism told Congress Thursday that far-right groups, not the radicals of antifa, currently pose the most serious threat of political violence in America — including attacks on the police.

“The facts are right now that right-wing extremism is the bigger problem. That’s where the violence is coming from,” said Heidi Beirich, the recent co-founder of the Global Project Against Hate and Extremism and former director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, where she spent the past two decades tracking and reporting on far-right extremist activity in the U.S.

Beirich was called to testify Thursday as part of a virtual hearing of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence & Counterterrorism, along with JJ MacNab, a fellow at George Washington University’s Program on Extremism, and John Donohue, the former chief of strategic initiatives for the New York City Police Department and a fellow at Rutgers University’s Miller Center for Community Protection and Resilience.

The subject of the hearing, led by subcommittee Chairman Max Rose, D-N.Y., was “assessing the threat of accelerationists and militia extremists,” such as members of the so-called boogaloo movement, which has recently become the subject of increased national interest following the arrests of several alleged boogaloo members on charges mostly related to violent actions or plots relating to the Black Lives Matter protests. Among them was an active-duty Air Force sergeant arrested in May and charged with fatally shooting two law enforcement agents in California, including one federal security officer, and injuring two others.


Rose made a point of declaring at the top of the hearing that “this ain’t about politics today.”

“If there’s something happening [anywhere] on the political spectrum that involves violence, upending society, threatening institutions, we gotta look at it,” Rose said, insisting that “it is incredibly irrelevant to me which groups we look at so long as we are looking at the principal ones that threaten people’s lives.”

Since late May, when protests against police killings of Black people began spreading to cities around the country, there have been dueling narratives about who was responsible for instigating violence, including damage to property and clashes with police, at the otherwise largely peaceful demonstrations.

President Trump and others within his administration, including Attorney General William Barr, have consistently sought, without evidence, to blame violent activity at these protests on antifa, an amorphous movement made up of various radical leftists and anarchist groups united in their willingness to use violence against neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anyone else they consider to be “fascists.”

At Thursday’s hearing, Republican Rep. Mark Walker, the ranking member of the Subcommittee on Intelligence & Counterterrorism, insisted that antifa is not just “a conservative talking point” and should be reviewed along with other violent extremists, including those with ties to white supremacy, antigovernment militias and other far-right accelerationist movements, such as the boogaloo.

“Over the past three months, there’s been a consistent effort by antifa supporters to infiltrate protests to lay siege to government buildings and target law enforcement,” said Walker.

However, a growing body of evidence, including intelligence reports, leaked law enforcement documents, as well as a number of indictments filed by Barr’s own Justice Department, has revealed significant threats against police and protesters by followers of far-right accelerationist and antigovernment militia movements, including the boogaloo. There has been little evidence of similarly coordinated efforts by groups associated with antifa.

In her written testimony, MacNab addressed recent efforts to paint “Antifa as the Fictional Enemy.”

“Known for confronting racists and right-wing militant groups at protests, causing property damage, and engaging in street violence, the various subgroups that make up Antifa are not without fault,” wrote MacNab. “They are not, however, the hyper-violent army that anti-government extremists make them out to be.”

MacNab acknowledged that “in the last two months, there has been a noticeable rise in left-wing private paramilitary groups.” However, whilethe right-wing/left-wing labels may not be as clear as they once were,” she wrote, “the overwhelming majority of anti-government extremists are still right-wing.”

MacNab also sought to disentangle the somewhat confusing web of extremist ideologies that have come to identify with the boogaloo, emphasizing that the white supremacist wing of this movement is much smaller than the antigovernment extremist faction.

“Both movements want to tear the nation apart, to accelerate the downfall of society so that they can rebuild it to fit their idea of utopia, but they have different visions of what that utopia entails,” she wrote in her statement.

During the hearing Thursday, MacNab said that “most boogaloo members are libertarian anarchists who hate cops.”

“Guns are the common denominator in most antigovernment extremist groups,” she added. “Racism is not.”

During Thursday’s hearing, MacNab also explained that while the Hawaiian shirts, igloo patches and seemingly jovial jargon associated with the boogaloo (a term that itself evolved from an internet joke to refer to the anticipated civil war) are new, the disparate movement that has evolved around the boogaloo is simply the latest iteration of the broader antigovernment extremist movement, a loosely affiliated network of right-wing groups.

“The idea of a second American revolution, where armed patriots gather, rise up and overthrow the tyrannical government has been the dream of the antigovernment extremist movement for decades,” she said.

Over the last several months, she continued, “renewed conversations about gun control laws and restrictions, the COVID-19 pandemic, the recent mainstreaming of ‘deep state’ and anti-vaccine conspiracy theories, high unemployment rates, civil unrest in major U.S. cities, and the extreme divisiveness plaguing the upcoming general election have triggered a recent rebirth in the segment of the movement that focuses on firearms.”

This resurgence of antigovernment extremism coincided with the spread of boogaloo jokes and memes from the 4chan and Reddit boards where it originated to more mainstream social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, where the term was adopted by other antigovernment militants.

The boogaloo aesthetic and jargon grew increasingly popular among antigovernment and pro-gun groups on Facebook after a number of militants in Hawaiian shirts and boogaloo patches were seen among the more than 22,000 mostly armed protesters at a gun rights rally in Richmond, Va., in January. Antigovernment militia groups like the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters soon began co-opting the boogaloo identity (including the Hawaiian shirts) within their Facebook groups, while on more secure message forums like Discord and Telegram, white supremacists and neo-Nazis were doing the same.

Days before the Richmond rally, the FBI arrested three members of the violent white supremacist accelerationist group the Base, who had allegedly plotted a shooting at the scene to create chaos. It was one of the first prominent examples of the accelerationist strategy of usurping otherwise peaceful gatherings to provoke armed confrontation.

Over the next several months, mainstream social media platforms, particularly Facebook and its private groups, served as a breeding ground for the boogaloo movement, as members of other antigovernment groups were drawn to boogaloo-themed pages. As the U.S. became the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, these groups helped spread disinformation and conspiracy theories about the virus, and fomented opposition to lockdown measures. Followers of the boogaloo began showing up at reopen protests, and later, the nationwide demonstrations against police brutality and racial injustice sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May. At least one group of self-identified members of the boogaloo movement, who were arrested last month in an alleged plot to incite violence at a Black Lives Matter protest in Las Vegas, had originally met at a reopen Nevada rally, according to prosecutors.

However, Facebook did not take action to stop the violent movement spreading across its platform until late last month, after several alleged boogaloo followers were arrested on charges mostly related to violent actions or plots relating to the Black Lives Matter protests.

Amid an ongoing advertiser boycott over the social network’s policies on hateful content, Facebook announced on June 30 that it had removed 220 Facebook accounts, 95 Instagram accounts and 106 groups associated with the boogaloo for violating its policies against organized violence, as well as an additional 400 groups and over 100 pages associated with the movement. The statement also included the somewhat confusing announcement that Facebook was officially banning from its platform “a violent US-based anti-government network” that uses the term boogaloo “but is distinct from the broader and loosely-affiliated boogaloo movement because it actively seeks to commit violence.”

“The true accelerant of these movements is the internet,” Beirich wrote in her prepared testimony. Beirich compared modern extremists’ use of mainstream internet platforms to spread their hateful ideology and inspire violence to the way “Hitler used the new radio to push his views into German families’ homes, thereby radicalizing an entire country into genocidal thinking.”

Beirich and the other witnesses urged Congress to take action to stop the spread of these violent movements through social media, and called for oversight to ensure that tech companies are held accountable for enforcing clear and consistent policies against the kind of content used to recruit people to these movements and inspire acts of violence.

“Congress has oversight responsibility to find out what the heck is going on in the social media world on this front,” she said. “I would suggest Congress call the tech companies to account for what’s in their terms of service and how they are enforcing their terms of service.”

In a question posed to the panel, Rose asked whether, by failing to crack down on the growing threat posed by these extremist movements, Congress would be unnecessarily putting the lives of law enforcement officials and law-abiding citizens alike at risk. All three experts agreed that the answer was yes.

While Beirich warned that inaction from Congress on the spread of these movements via social media could lead to mass attacks like the deadly shooting at a Walmart in El Paso last summer that left 22 dead, MacNab said it remains to be seen whether and how the violent surge of these particular movements would continue long-term. “Short-term,” she said, “I think we are looking at mass casualties.”

“It could be three, it could be 50. It could be protesters, it could be cops, it could be press, it could be medical workers,” she said, predicting that deadly attacks could be instigated by a variety of triggers, whether it’s renewed coronavirus lockdown orders, ongoing civil unrest, the upcoming presidential election or any kind of effort to impose new gun control legislation.

“As long as there is chaos these groups will thrive,” said MacNab. While some members of extremist militias are waiting for a catalyst to launch the violence, many others, she said, “will do what they have to do to bring chaos to the situation.”

Simply put, MacNab told the subcommittee, “if you do nothing, people will die.”

the caveat:

During a smallpox outbreak in March 1662, officials in East Hampton, near the eastern tip of New York’s Long Island,(1) tried to cut off movement between the town and surrounding Indian villages. “It is ordered that no Indian shall come to towne into the street after sufficient notice upon penalty of 5s. or be whipped until they be free of the smallpoxe,” they decreed. Town residents who visited nearby “wigwams” were to suffer the same punishment.

Englewood, Colorado, a major suburb of Denver, has made it a crime to leave your home without wearing a mask.

And ‘crime’ means crime. They’re not talking about a fine or slap on the wrist.

Anyone over six years old must wear a mask at all times, anywhere in public or in private businesses. And the punishment for breaking the law is up to a year in jail.

By comparison, Colorado sentencing guidelines provide similar penalties for felonies like illegal weapons possession, forgery, theft, and failing to register as a sex offender.

For authoritarians, any silly little law they can think of comes with a year in prison.

It’s like an automatic stamp, new law, BOOM-- year in prison.

Just your weekly reminder that there is no crime so trivial that the government won’t throw you in a cage over.

Cops track fast food order to bust party violating lockdown

Ambulance workers eating at a KFC in Australia somehow caught wind of a large order coming in to the fast food establishment.

So naturally, instead of minding their own business, they called the police. That’s what you do in the time of Covid-- snitch on your neighbors.

Police followed the delivery driver to the home that ordered the large amount of fried chicken. And sure enough, some horrible criminals were having a birthday party.

But don’t worry, the Australian police issued a total of A$26,000 (over $18,000 US) worth of fines to the partiers.

Covid-19 is all the excuse authorities need to go full-on police state.

Interesting since the death rate is pretty much gone to zero. You have to ask yourself what's the reason for ramping up the fear and taking even greater control

I can guarantee you they won't be shooting this guy in the back of the head kneeling in front of a mass grave. It will probably be the other way around. I may be older but I'm not that old and remain very dangerous and quite able to deliver the hurt
When that time comes, I will have a few surprises up my sleeve for the bastards. They'll get no warning and will not know what hit them.

Global Elites Announce ‘Great Reset’ Plan—And It’s Even More Radical Than the Green New Deal
1595197992718.png

At a virtual World Economic Forum meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world.

At a virtual World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world economy.



“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this [COVID-19] crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” said Prince Charles, one of the leaders of the event.



The purpose of the “Great Reset” is to use the coronavirus pandemic as a justification—attendees repeatedly referred to it as an “opportunity”—to completely overhaul the entire global economy, including the U.S. economy, to make a more “equitable” world and to fight climate change, which was on numerous occasions identified as the world’s next great “crisis.”



In an article published on the World Economic Forum’s website, WEF founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab said “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”



“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” Schwab added. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”



Schwab wasn’t the only one calling for the world “reset” capitalism, either. Countless leaders at the event, many of whom hold incredibly influential positions in international governing bodies or in foreign governments, demanded far-reaching economic changes that sound remarkably similar to Bernie Sanders’ and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal”—except on a global scale.



Sharan Burrow, the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), said we need to use the present crisis to help “rebalance” the global economy.



“We need to design policies to align with investment in people and the environment,” Burrow said. “But above all, the longer-term perspective is about rebalancing economies.”

Global Elites Announce ‘Great Reset’ Plan—And It’s Even More Radical Than the Green New Deal
View attachment 173184
At a virtual World Economic Forum meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world.

At a virtual World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world economy.



“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this [COVID-19] crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” said Prince Charles, one of the leaders of the event.



The purpose of the “Great Reset” is to use the coronavirus pandemic as a justification—attendees repeatedly referred to it as an “opportunity”—to completely overhaul the entire global economy, including the U.S. economy, to make a more “equitable” world and to fight climate change, which was on numerous occasions identified as the world’s next great “crisis.”



In an article published on the World Economic Forum’s website, WEF founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab said “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”



“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” Schwab added. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”



Schwab wasn’t the only one calling for the world “reset” capitalism, either. Countless leaders at the event, many of whom hold incredibly influential positions in international governing bodies or in foreign governments, demanded far-reaching economic changes that sound remarkably similar to Bernie Sanders’ and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal”—except on a global scale.



Sharan Burrow, the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), said we need to use the present crisis to help “rebalance” the global economy.



“We need to design policies to align with investment in people and the environment,” Burrow said. “But above all, the longer-term perspective is about rebalancing economies.”
