Biden’s Campaign Staff is Bailing The Rioters and Looters Out of Jail

From Reuters:

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer.

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.”

I don’t want to hear this nonsense that Democrats don’t support the rioters. They do.

If they didn’t, the rioting would have been over days ago given that Democrats control all the cities where riots and looting are occurring.

The Democratic Presidential Nominee’s campaign staff is paying to bail rioters and looters out of jail. Not that Biden is aware of this, of course–he’s not aware of very much these days. But these are the people who will be calling the shots behind the scenes for Loopy Joe.

Did Space-X Just Get Busted by a Mouse? 🐭

I just stumbled across this video which appears to show a MOUSE crawling over the exhaust pipe of a vessel that was supposedly hurtling through outer space:

The guy who filmed the video clearly is convinced it’s a mouse.

I looked at the comments on the video and one person said it’s a chunk of ice that fell off. The first thing in the video that we see move is not a mouse, that looks like something that fell from somewhere and landed on the exhaust pipe.

But the second thing is not ice.

“Law and Order” Just Became The Most Important Issue in the 2020 Election

Social media might seem to be decidedly in support of the rioters and looters.

But the Silent Majority wants law and order.

The people in the suburbs are worried this is going to spill over into their neighborhoods.

Trump’s response since George Floyd’s death has been good. He immediately ordered an FBI investigation of the matter.

The people who think Trump is “racist” are always going to think that. Nobody who thought Trump wasn’t racist before this now thinks he is.

The only way Trump loses support here is if he doesn’t take action and reimpose some law and order in the burning cities.

The majority of Americans want law and order. They want peace. That’s what Trump needs to focus on here. These are the people that put him in the White House.

He shouldn’t waste his time trying to sympathize with the marauders and looters. He should appeal directly to his base: the people who want him to bring order to the chaos.

This is not the time for a “unity” or “healing” speech. It’s time for Trump to stand up for the silent majority by restoring law and order to our burning cities.

The media is going to have a cow but it doesn’t matter. The media is less relevant by the day. In fact the best campaign strategy for Trump would be to do the opposite of what the media wants every step of the way. The more hysterical the media reaction, the better the policy.

This is perhaps the best thing that could have happened for Trump in terms of the election. Joe Biden has no choice but to take the side of the rioters and looters.

All Trump has to do is step up and re-secure the burning country. He’s getting bad advice from whoever is preventing him from doing this. I know from his “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” tweet the other day that his initial instinct was to crush this insurrection with massive force.

But someone talked him out of it. Bad move. Trump needs to be the law and order candidate. This is not a time for “unity” and “sympathy.” People are not looting and burning down major cities because they’re in emotional pain.

These are violent, marauding thugs and Trump appealing to them in any way is an act of massive weakness and insecurity.

Ignore the media, ignore social media: the majority of Americans want peace and tranquility. They are not on the side of these rioters.

This is Trump’s moment to step up and impose some law and order; to take our country back from the barbarians. To strike a blow against chaos on behalf of the civilized, law-abiding folk. If he fails to do this, he cannot credibly claim to be the law and order candidate again.

Rioters: You Are Being Used

Of all the hundreds and hundreds of wild videos that have surfaced over the past few nights of rioting, this one is, to me, the most revealing:

This is not a spontaneous event. Maybe the first night in Minneapolis was, but everything since has been organized and planned by… someone.

That’s a pallet of bricks sitting out in front of a courthouse in what I believe is Dallas, Texas.

Those bricks were placed there deliberately by someone in order to facilitate greater mayhem and destruction.

These riots are not spontaneous and organic. These riots are planned and orchestrated.

I Don’t Want to Hear the Term “Social Distancing” Ever Again

Don’t tell me I can’t dine-in at a restaurant.

Don’t tell me I have to stay 6′ apart from everybody else.

Don’t tell me we can’t have gatherings of more than 10 people anywhere.

Anyone who has seen one minute of the coverage of these riots knows that Coronavirus is done. It’s over.

Either we’re under lockdown or we’re not. There aren’t exceptions.

There is no “rioting and looting” exception to the lockdown.

Either these people all get arrested and fined for violating the stay at home orders (plus whatever other crimes they’ve committed), or we are completely done with the coronavirus.

I will not live in a country where it is illegal to go a bar, but it is legal to riot, burn, smash, steal, loot and vandalize.

I Hate to Say It…

. . .but George Floyd was killed because he resisted, not because he’s black.

If you don’t resist, you will be fine. If you obey the cops and pose no threat to their safety, you will be fine.

The cops don’t know you. They’ve seen some messed up shit in their lives. They don’t know your intentions, they don’t know what you’re going to do. They’re extra cautious. If they feel threatened, they’re not gonna hesitate to take action against you. If they feel like it’s your life or their life, they’re going to look after their own lives.

The moment you resist, they are not gonna treat you nicely. They’re going to look at you as a threat to their lives. You lose any benefit of the doubt they were willing to give you the moment you start resisting.

You are on your own the moment you start resisting.

Now, that cop in Minneapolis definitely was wrong to kneel on Floyd’s neck. And then to continue doing so after he had already lost consciousness (in all likelihood, died).

I am not on that cop’s side. Not even a little tiny bit.

Just because Floyd was giving them a hard time doesn’t mean he deserved to be killed.

The cop was wrong. What he did was indefensible.

And everyone acknowledges this.

But Floyd did himself no favors when he stopped cooperating with the police. There is no scenario where not cooperating with police can lead to any good outcome for you.

I’ll say it once again in case I wasn’t clear enough: even though he gave the cops a hard time it doesn’t mean he got what he deserved. But he opened himself up to that possibility when he started resisting.

So what “radical changes” do these “protesters” actually want? What are they hoping to achieve?

Make it illegal to call the cops on a black person? Make it illegal to arrest a black person?

You will never get to a point where the police are perfect and never make mistakes. You will never get to a point where there are no dickheads and assholes in the police force.

What do you want? Perfection? Does anything short of 100% perfection warrant riots?

It’s a noble goal to want police to be perfect, but it’s never going to happen. You’re dealing with human beings. There will never be a time in history where all cops are perfect angels who never make mistakes. You are setting yourself up for disappointment if your demand is perfection.

Nobody is defending the cop that killed George Floyd. No meaningful number of Americans think he was right.

The overwhelming number of Americans think the officer was wrong.

They were on your side–until you started burning your city to the ground.

What are these rioters and protesters so angry about? Who do they think they are opposing?

Who doesn’t think black lives matter?

People in Washington D.C, Atlanta, Los Angeles and all over the country are protesting one police officer in Minneapolis.

An officer who has already been fired, already been charged with third degree murder, and who is already under arrest. He’s sitting in a jail cell right now.

What more do you want?

I think the people involved in these riots and “demonstrations” just want to be angry. They want to riot. They want to feel like they’re part of a historical moment. They want to feel like they’re Doing Something Great.

The white people just want to virtue signal and show they’re Not Racist. That’s a given.

As a whole, they’ve been brainwashed by Hollywood and the media to believe America is a racist hellhole.

But honestly, what can be done to make sure this never happens again? What policies could be implemented?

Literally nothing. The cop broke the law.

George Floyd was murdered by a cop. It’s sad that it happened. It should not have happened. The cop should be brought to justice, and George Floyd’s family should be paid a fat settlement from the city of Minneapolis because they were wronged.

I’m not saying arresting the cop and paying Floyd’s family a settlement makes it right, because nothing will bring a dead family member back to life.

But sometimes these things happen in our messed-up world. If we lived in a perfect world, we wouldn’t even need police in the first place.

There is literally nothing that can be done to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future.

Except for people to not resist when they get arrested.

According to the Washington Post’s database, since 2015, there have been 49 unarmed, not-fleeing-the-scene black people in the US that have been killed by police.

There are 42 million black people in America. At the very least, you have to admit there is not an epidemic of black people being “slaughtered” by police.

There’s an epidemic of media coverage, of course. But there is no epidemic of killing.

Three unarmed black people have been killed by police this year. One was fleeing.

Last year, there were nine unarmed black people killed by police. Six were fleeing.

The WaPo database doesn’t even have information on how many were resisting arrest. Fleeing the scene is the closest thing they have.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics only has arrest data for years up to 2014, and in 2014, there were 11,207,143 people arrested in America. In 2015, there were 994 people shot and killed by police.

Since we don’t have data on total arrests for 2015, we can look at other years to see if we can ballpark it. In 2013, the number of total arrests was 11.3 million. In 2012 it was 12.2 million. In 2011, it was 12.4 million.

So the number of total arrests in America actually decreased by 1.2 million between 2011 and 2014.

Let’s just assume the number of arrests didn’t fluctuate very much from 2014 to 2015, and that 11.2 million is a fair estimate for the years since 2014, i.e. that we can reasonably estimate about 11.2 million people were arrested in America in 2015.

Only 94 of the 992 shot and killed by police that year were unarmed, and only 56 of those 94 were both unarmed and not fleeing the scene.

56 out of 11.2 million. That’s 0.000005%.

And we still don’t even know how many of those 56 people were resisting. We don’t know how many of those 56 cases the police were actually justified in killing the suspect.

But even if we assume all 56 cases of unarmed, non-fleeing perps being killed were unjustified and wrong, that’s still only 0.000005% of arrests.

56 out of 11.2 million comes out to 1 in 200,000. You have a 1 in 200,000 chance of being killed by a cop while you’re unarmed.

And the media focuses on the 1, not the 199,999.

Reminder: 80k Americans died during the Flu Season 2017-18

Coronavirus has killed 100k Americans, according to official figures, and we had to shut our entire country down for two full months.

Not only are the death numbers likely inflated, it’s also worth pointing out that 80k Americans died of the flu just two years ago and nobody batted an eye:

The point of all this was not the virus, it was the lockdown.

The elites know that the best way to get Americans to give up all their freedoms is a “global pandemic.” This has been a success for them beyond their wildest dreams.

Rubicon Moment: Twitter Censors the White House

The White House Twitter account retweeted the President this morning. But Twitter hid the tweet:

If you click on it, you can see the whole thing:

Screen Shot 2020-05-29 at 1.46.27 PM

Leftwing “journalists” have been begging Twitter to censor the President since the day he took office. Most of them want him outright banned.

Now Twitter has given them what they want. I’m sure this has nothing to do with the fact that it’s an election year.

This is a major moment in the Social Media Era. The Social Media Giants are now so confident in their own power that they are now comfortable strong-arming the White House. The Social Media Giants are out of control.

Why Did George Floyd Die?

I’ll preface this by saying I’m well-aware the horse is already out of the barn. The court of public opinion has already long since made up its mind that George Floyd was killed for the crime of being black, and for no other reason.

I’ll also add that I’m completely open to the fact that the police killed him.

I just want to figure out what happened. Because it seems like nobody really knows. Again, I understand nobody really cares, either, but there should at least be some priority given to facts, shouldn’t there?

I’ve seen two videos of the incident: the one with officer with his knee on Floyd’s neck, and then the security camera footage from the storefront that shows the officers apprehending Floyd. In the latter footage, which people are citing to prove Floyd didn’t resist, the officers can be seen slapping the cuffs on him and then starting to lead him towards the police car. Here’s a still:

Somehow, Floyd ended up in this situation:

EZIqOQkWkAETsWT

What I don’t understand is how Floyd went from being escorted by police to being on the street underneath an officer’s knee.

What happened between Picture 1 and Picture 2?

New York Post says “video doesn’t appear to show George Floyd resisting arrest”:

Screen Shot 2020-05-28 at 6.24.40 PM

But we don’t have video of the entire sequence of events. So how do we know he wasn’t resisting?

Most people are recoiling at the visual of the officer with his knee on Floyd’s neck. I agree, it looks very bad. There’s a video that’s over 9 minutes long that shows the officers with Floyd on the ground:

But it doesn’t show how he got into that position. I would be willing to bet a scuffle or something happened from the time he was first apprehended to the time he wound up underneath the officer’s knee.

When you’re handcuffed, you go to the police cruiser and they put you in the back. For some reason, that did not happen with George Floyd. The process did not go smoothly, for some currently unknown reason.

No cause of death has been released, according to Star Tribune.

The DA investigation is still ongoing, and today the DA of Hennepin County said that “there is other evidence that does not support a criminal charge” against the officers involved in George Floyd’s death.

The knee on the neck video looks bad. The officer is in that position on top of Floyd for over nine minutes, and Floyd is clearly unconscious for a good 4-5 minutes of that. The officer has to know Floyd is unconscious because the bystanders on the street keep yelling it at him over and over.

We’ll have to wait and see what the official verdict is. We need to see the full video of his arrest: from the moment he is handcuffed to the moment the police officer gets him on the ground and puts Floyd’s neck under his knee. We need to see how it went from A to B.

The DA is in a horrible position. There is no more impossible job in America than the DA investigating this case. Either you clear the cops and provide the mob with an excuse for more looting and rioting, or you sentence a potentially innocent man to a very long prison sentence.

I don’t know if the cop is innocent or guilty. He definitely doesn’t look innocent from the video. Although I’m sure he didn’t have his full weight on the knee that was on Floyd’s neck, that still didn’t look good.
