WHO SHOT THE RAS? Did Bernel Tremel’s support for 45 lead to his untimely death? Hear Ras Bernel’s last and final words. #THEGODDEGREEWHO SHOT THE RAS? Did Ras Bernell’s support for Donald Trump lead to his untimely death? — The God Degree
By Daniel Bobinski
In the 1930’s, a skillful propagandist named Paul Joseph Goebbels was able to exercise great control over the news in Germany. Using radio – a new media at the time – and film, Goebbels influenced the country’s opinions on antisemitism, churches, and even the arts. One of his most useful techniques was censoring any message that didn’t agree with the Nazi Party’s objectives.
In 2020, the new media platforms of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are similarly influencing the world’s opinion on matters of antisemitism, the church, the arts, and even healthcare. And, like Goebbels, one of their most useful techniques is censoring any message that doesn’t agree with their common objectives.
If you’ve been tracking the news at all over the past five months, you know there’s a group of people downplaying every treatment that emerges for treating Covid-19, saying instead that the infection can be cured only with a vaccine. I personally refer to this group as the global medical establishment, but let’s call it GME for short. Generally speaking, the GME consists of organizations and agencies that wield great influence over public health information. Think Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Think the National Institutes for Health (NIH). Think the World Health Organization (W.H.O.). Think the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And we can’t leave out companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Merck, and Novartis, collectively (and not-so-affectionately) referred to as “Big Pharma.”
For those that don’t know, my 30 years of experience as a management / leadership coach kicks in whenever I look at an organization’s leadership: “What’s their motivation?” is a fundamental question. Why do I bring that up? You should know that the World Economic Forum has partnered with GME organizations in response to the coronavirus outbreak. To start connecting dots and understanding motivations, check out the World Economic Forum’s one hour and 20 minute movie about The Great Reset. I’ll give you a hint – there’s not a lot of selfless altruism.
You should also know that Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are giving GME organizations the final word in all things medical, and no second opinions are allowed. As proof of this, consider YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki saying this past April that any content on YouTube that goes “against the World Heath Organization recommendations” will be removed.
WebMD says you should get a second opinion whenever a treatment is experimental or there is no established consensus on a treatment, but the tech giants aren’t letting you have that. Especially if it has anything having to do with Covid-19. Their organization’s leaders don’t like President Trump (remember that motivation thing), so they can’t allow any hope, and they certainly can’t allow any low-cost, easy access treatments for Covid. They need Americans to be devoid of hope. Two things you can observe:
- An ‘expert,’ Anthony Fauci, is being used to downplay all hope and keep people confused
- A state of fear is being maintained so they can pin all unease on President Trump
Fauci, you may recall, is famous for countering President Trump on live TV after Trump heard from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko who said Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was effective in fighting Covid. Despite a 2005 Virology Journal article published by Fauci’s own NIH (titled “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread”), Fauci downplayed HCQ’s effectiveness.
Traditional media outlets friendly to the GME did their best to paint HCQ as dangerous, but both The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine, two highly respected medical journals, had to issue retractions and apologies after the “studies” they published damning HCQ turned out to be erroneous.
The truth about HCQ is finally emerging thanks to the efforts of people like Dr. Harvey Risch, an epidemiologist at Yale. The author of more that 300 peer reviewed papers, Risch recently announced that HCQ is “highly effective” in treating Covid, and recommended that we “start treating people with HCQ immediately.”
For whatever reason (remember that “motivation” question), Fauci continues to squelch any sense of hope that using HCQ will help fight Covid.
Social media is complicit
Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are also squelching any sense of hope. Let me use a personal example to explain.
Earlier this month I wrote a column titled, “A scientific look at the mask fallacy – and why we’re told to wear them.” In this widely read article I cited and linked to research by Dr. Zelenko on the efficacy of his highly effective HCQ / zinc / azithromycin treatment (known as the Zelenko Protocol). I also cited and linked to research on what I call Bartlett’s Nebulizer Protocol, developed by Dr. Richard Bartlett in Texas. His highly effective treatment uses a nebulizer to successfully treat Covid patients using Budesonide and zinc.
I also cited and linked to peer-reviewed research over the past 15 years on all the randomized controlled trials studying mask efficacy for preventing viral transmission.
Plain and simple, this is censorship. It’s like Soviet Russia in the 1960’s or the Chinese Communist Party today. They want only one story to be told – no second opinions allowed.
Coincidentally, the same day Facebook tagged my column, a group of medical professionals called America’s Frontline Doctors were broadcasting a press conference in Washington DC. These doctors said:
- Kids don’t spread the virus to adults
- HCQ/zinc/azithromycin works to cure Covid
- HCQ is available over the counter overseas but governments are restricting it in the USA
- Case numbers are irrelevant because of inaccuracies in testing
Before the social media giants realized this message was getting out, more than 17,000,000 people saw the video. Obviously, the information these doctors presented didn’t align with the GME’s narrative, so Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube began pulling down the video wherever they found it. At the same time, their partners in traditional and left-wing media embarked on a character assassination campaign for everyone involved in America’s Frontline Doctors.
Again, censorship. There can be only one narrative! No second opinions allowed. Not even from Board-Certified doctors.
Bias in social media ‘fact-checkers’
Have you noticed that left-wingers and Marxists rarely get censored? They post lie after lie and fill our feeds with false information, yet the social media giants turn a blind eye.
Conversely, Donald Trump, Jr. was blocked by Twitter for 12 hours for “sharing misinformation on Covid-19.” What information did he share? He linked to the doctors holding their conference in Washington, DC.
I invite readers to review the Project Veritas undercover report and watch Facebook’s “independent” fact checkers state for themselves on undercover camera how their political bias drives their decisions. Also watch the video showing Facebook “fact checkers” bragging about blocking and/or deleting whatever they want because they personally don’t agree with the content.
This should be alarming to every American.
In my opinion, Fauci is lying about HCQ. His own NIH researched it back in 2005, finding zero danger and positive results in treating coronaviruses. And Facebook is lying about my column. I didn’t present false information. I presented different information from what the Global Medical Establishment wants you to believe.
The problem? People are dying because of these lies. But, like Goebbels, Fauci and Facebook don’t really care. They’re too focused on their organization’s objectives.
Goebbels would be proud.

Democrats around the country tell Police to “Stand Down” as rioters assault, maim, and kill their constituents and loot and burn those constituents property!

Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman February 26, 2012. The media instantly went into race baiting mode to incite violence. They even reported to the public that Zimmerman was white, even though he was actually a Hispanic male.
I knew what they were doing at the time, which was to sew division between blacks and whites. I don’t know if you realize this or not, but after Trayvon Martin was shot in 2012 Black Lives Matter was created. That’s right, BLM originated as a supposed “protest movement” after the killing.
Anyway, I was watching a video this morning that made me realize something that I had overlooked before. I highly recommend that you watch the video too, it contains some information that will surprise you so I’m including it here. Click the image below to watch the video.
Here’s the time line folks.
1.) Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a HISPANIC man, George Zimmerman. The media reports that Martin was killed by a “White” man.
2.) Black Lives Matter (BLM) was founded just after Martin’s death.
3.) It came out that the media was LYING and that Zimmerman was actually Hispanic. If you recall they reported he was a very “white looking Hispanic man” in an attempt to sew division.
4.) In 2012-13 the “uniform crime report” (or whatever report he found) listed the victims/perpetrator by RACE, including “Hispanics” (Like George Zimmerman)
5.) After the media could not pin Trayvon Martin’s death on a white person in 2012 like they wanted to, someone thought they’d be slick and they combined Hispanics with Whites on the crime tables! That’s right folks, you no longer have a “Hispanic” category on the index!
After not being able to say a “white guy” killed Trayvon Martin the media and buffoons that track this data apparently decided to combine whites and Hispanics so they can blame white folks for EVERY CRIME COMMITTED BY ILLEGAL ALIENS from South of the border!
Let’s see…….. Trayvon is killed by a Hispanic man (Legally I might add) and media tries to incite violence against whites by reporting Zimmerman was white, don’t work and BLM gets formed.
Then the very next year the Hispanic column disappears from these indexes because THEY DISHONESTLY SLIPPED IT INTO THE WHITE COLUMN!!! So now when they report crime statistics committed by race white people are being held responsible for all Hispanic crimes too!!!
I really don’t see what race has to do with anything, but if you are going to break it down into race don’t you think that Hispanics deserve THEIR OWN COLUMN???n You know, like they’ve ALWAYS HAD pre-2012.
The media takes this false information and hits white people over the head with it!!! And I NOW KNOW what the catalyst was for this BAD IDEA!!!
Will YOU please ask your state representatives & the news media why it is these numbers are being skewed??? Because there is only 1 reason to skewer these numbers and it’s to promote division and HATE!
I want to also recommend the following video by “Black Pilled” because right now is a time to be HONEST and not a time for PC bullspit!!!
The #Socialist #Democrats‘ new favorite term is “Existential Threat”. They toss it around like a little kid with a brand new toy in reference to “Climate Change”.
CO2 is actually GOOD for the planet, it is a by-product produced by human beings themselves!!! All of the trees and the plants on this planet “breathe” CO2 and “exhale” Oxygen, which human beings NEED to survive.
So their argument is flawed to say the least!!! Their BS “science” is designed for one purpose. CONTROL. They want to control EVERYTHING through government.
I am really sick of hearing how “Climate Change” is an Existential Threat!!! Big words and small minds don’t mix well!!
Let’s talk about the REAL Existential Threat. DEMOCRATS and the New World Order. They want to control EVERYONE on this planet!!! They want to micromanage your everyday life.
They want to control your diet, the information you are “allowed” to have, and even what information shows up when you do a search on Google.
The REAL Existential Threat we face as humans is these people who want to control us all!!!
That’s why they want to take your #Guns!!! You cannot exercise total control over people until you disarm them!!!
Friend………. They are looking to have TOTAL CONTROL over this planet and EVERYONE on it!!!
I personally believe they are such a threat to ALL of us that they need to be ejected from government altogether. Many of them BELONG in #Prison!!!
You better take notice NOW!!! Because they are fighting EVERY DAY to realize their dream of TOTAL CONTROL.
There have been more mass shootings in America since #Obama took office than there was in ALL OF HISTORY!!!
And the FIRST thing you’ll hear after each of these shootings is “Gun Control”!!! And “We must ban these guns and those guns and the other guns to guarantee our safety.
It has become such a regular occurrence that I have come to believe the Democrats themselves are involved in these mass shootings for the sole purpose of disarming YOU!!!
Nevermind the FACT that gun control would NOT have stopped a single one of these shootings.
Nevermind the FACT that disarming EVERY LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN in America WOULD NOT STOP THESE SHOOTINGS!!!
#Criminals do NOT obey the #Laws. So no matter what kind of law you create a CRIMINAL will ignore it!!! #Murder is already illegal!!! Most of these mass shootings occur in parts of the country that have the STRICTEST GUN CONTROL LAWS!!!
So it’s easy to see that it does NOT work. They don’t care!!!
What they want is TOTAL POWER over EVERYONE on the planet!!! In order to achieve that they MUST disarm EVERY LAW ABIDING CITIZEN IN THE COUNTRY!!!
Look at New Zealand!!! Islamic Terrorists have carried out 34,772 DEADLY ATTACKS since 9/11.
And 1 Mosque gets attacked killing 50 people or so and New Zealand instantly wants to ban just about all weapons!!!
These people will do ANYTHING to get TOTAL CONTROL over YOU and your family, including stage mass shootings in my opinion!!! It’s up to YOU to stop them!!!
Join the NRA!!! Write every Congressman in #Congress!!! DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT until your last breath
with EVERYTHING you have!!!
It’s the ONLY thing that protects humanity from these people gaining TOTAL CONTROL over them!!!
You want to talk Existential Threats Democrats? IT’S YOU!!!
#Vote #Republican and defend the 2nd amendment with your LIFE!!!
Conservative Thinker 02/15/2019
I generally only share stories, I do not do a lot of writing myself. This story had me awake at 4 am this morning, I’m too mad to settle down. Too disappointed in the system to calm down. This is one kind of injustice that we as Americans cannot tolerate! We may as well live in Nazi controlled Germany once we let stuff like this slide!
VIDEO: Violent Police Brutality
Glendale, Arizona’s finest pulled in behind a vehicle on 07/27/2017 that had just turned into a motel 6. The officer approaches the parked car and asks “Are y’all staying here”. The occupant Johnny Wheatcroft answers “About to get a room” Wheatcroft is the passenger and is in the front with another man (driver) and in the back seat is his wife and their two son 6 and 11 years old. The next question Officer Mathew Schneider asked is “You guys got your IDs on you real quick?” Wheatcroft asked “Who me?”. The cop then says “All of you”.
The officers then claimed the reason for the stop was failure to signal when turning into the parking lot. The vehicle was actually already stopped when officers approached it. But my belief is that officers targeted these people because of how they looked.
The officers wished to run the occupants’ Identification cards to check for warrants. They could have cared less about a “turn signal”. This was all about checking them for warrants. Unfortunately for the officers, the man knew his rights, so he asked them what he had done to warrant being asked for ID. The man was a PASSENGER in the vehicle NOT the driver. The police cannot just ask you for ID for no reason, they must have “probable cause” to LEGALLY do this.
Of course the police engage in lying to the public EVERY DAY!!! This day was no different. The officer did not care that he was violating the man’s Constitutional rights. He wanted to see his ID! Because you know, America has become Nazi Germany and you don’t HAVE any rights here anymore.
Johnny Wheatcroft was about to check into a motel room. He makes the mistake of digging through a bag of his belongings. Then Officer Matt Schneider says “Don’t reach in your bag man. You said you don’t have any ID I don’t want you reaching in there”. Johnny Wheatcroft apologizes very cooperatively “Oh okay, I’m sorry”.
Then the cop asked him “What’s your name man?” Wheatcroft questions the officer “Why am I even being asked?” and the cop replies “You said you don’t have any ID (inaudible)”. Then Wheatcroft says “I don’t need an ID bro”. Then the scumbag cop says “Yeah, if your a passenger in a vehicle you need ID”. Wheatcroft asked “Why’s that? I have an ID but I don’t have to give it to you, I’ve done nothing wrong”.
Anyway, then the scumbag (Officer Matt Schneider) says “Well I can take you down to the station and fingerprint you” Wheatcroft is like “For what?”. Schneider says “Because we made a traffic stop on the vehicle brother” And it devolves from there.
Let me tell you something. Police DO NOT have the right to ask you for an ID without probable cause that you have committed (or are committing) some kind of crime in ANY of the 50 states no matter what their law states! You are protected by the Constitution. Unless the police are detaining you they have NO RIGHT to ask for your ID.
Of course cops mostly view you as having no rights, so if you try to assert them they’ll just put a BS charge on you and take you to jail anyway. One way to know if you are being “Detained” is to ask them “Am I being detained?” If they say “No” then you don’t have to show them sh*t!!! Legally anyway. But just like the Nazis, police will find a way to screw you if they want to! So unless you have a camera crew handy, you may want to give it some thought. Here’s a link to a video about ID and the police. https://youtu.be/s4nQ_mFJV4I
Officer Mathew Schneider apparently has made an appearance on the television show COPS, where they chased a guy and let the dog chew on him for a minute before calling him off. He’s a real prize, but at least that guy had ran and had a warrant. Not that that’s an excuse. Here’s a link to the scumbag on COPS
Asserting your rights pisses the police off! Especially scumbags like this guy. You see…. He has a small winkie, or he was beat up as a child, or maybe he’s a closet homosexual…. Whatever his problem is he’s going to take it out on SOMEONE!!! Today it just happened to be Johnny Wheatcroft, who THOUGHT he was going to assert his Constitutional rights. Nazis just don’t give a damn about your rights!!! Can you imagine??? Can you imagine if that was YOU??? What about if it was your SON and Grandchildren in that car???
Guys like Mathew Schneider need to be locked in Prison. Using your badge to bully people and take them to jail is MUCH WORSE than people who just bully. This scumbag could have killed that man!!! I know for a FACT he traumatized the guys kids!!!
Poor Johnny and (I think) his wife too sat in JAIL for 3 months because he could not afford bail!!! 3 months!!! Then prosecutors dropped the charges after seeing the horrific footage. But the prosecutor didn’t go after the scumbag bully cop or his scumbag cohorts! A prosecutor has a responsibility to prosecute wrong doing, or so we thought.
If you are a sadistic power abusing scumbag like Matt Schneider you just get a pass in Glendale, Arizona. The FACT that the police department itself not only did not pursue charges, but they actively covered for the guy! I think the prosecutor who failed to charge the cops, the police chief, every officer present that day, and any officers in the department involved in covering it up NEED TO GO TO PRISON!
They should ALL be treated harsher than I would be treated for the same crime!!! Because they are in a position of trust, a position of enforcing the law. They should be held to a HIGHER standard than you and I!!! Check this out, this is their official response to their Crew of Nazi cops sexually assaulting this man and wrongfully imprisoning him and his wife, and sending his children to CPS after violently assaulting their father in front of them. This is their official statement and a 30 second clip of the nightmare where they try to claim one of the Nazis got “Knocked unconscious”. By the way, I’d say he was on the ground because he touched poor Johnny Wheatcroft as his partner was electrocuting him to death, and got a little charge himself.
I’ve been up all night tweeting to Trump, the Senators of Arizona, every newsroom in America, along with many public figures and many leaders of the GOP. I’m pissed off about this. Are we as Americans going to sit still for abuses like this that go unpunished? This scumbag belongs at the end of a rope. But since we don’t do things like that anymore at the very least he needs to be prosecuted and sent to PRISON!!!
What Officer Mathew Schneider done to this man and his family is as wrong as it gets short of just outright murdering the man!!! Not only is he guilty of battery and aggravated sexual assault of Wheatcroft, he then locked the guy in jail FOR DOING NOTHING!!!
That’s justice huh? Frigging scumbag Schneider gets 3 days of paid suspension from work, and is out on patrol today, while poor Johnny Wheatcroft sits behind bars because he couldn’t afford the bond!!! I think his wife did too, not sure about that.
Add to that this innocent man’s children got to go to CPS, his vehicle was towed, and most likely (Unless he had a real good friend to pay his bills) he lost his car to the towing company, lost his house or apartment and all of it’s contents. His kids pictures, EVERYTHING! All because of this scumbag cop!!!
Boys in Blue, if you keep covering for guys like this you’re going to have problems!!! America is a nation of LAWS… And the police have to follow those LAWS just like the rest of us. If not, then this country is lost! We may as well get out the guns and ammo and get to it. Because I refuse to become a victim of a bunch of law breaking Nazis like this guy!!!
Enforce the law!!! Even if you enforce it each other. Because preferential enforcement is getting REAL OLD!!! Just like the DOJ and FBI who ALSO selectively enforce the laws.
They give Hillary Clinton and 10 other Democrats passes for “Lying to Congress” even when it has been PROVEN!!! But then you go and ARREST Roger Stone for the SAME EXACT THING! (without the proof)
It’s time to either straighten this country out or draw up battle lines, this kind of sh*t cannot continue. When the people charged with upholding the law are dishonest what kind of “LAW” do you have? I’ll tell you, you have MOB RULES.
You may as well be the mafia.
EVERYONE PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SHARE THIS!!!

I watched an episode of Tucker Carlson on FOX News the other day that I wanted to share with everyone. I’m not big on watching “News” no matter who puts it out. All of the news channels have agendas these days so you can’t really just get the “News”.
So what you end up watching an “opinion piece”. I guess this would technically be an opinion piece too….. But I’m not representing it as “News” like they do.
When Trump was running for office I was not one of his supporters by any means. His long history of voting Democrat combined with campaign donations he had made to far left players in the Democratic Party convinced me that he was quite possibly going to turn out to be “Hillary Clinton by Proxy”. I didn’t trust him, and felt he was more of an “infiltrator” in the Republican Party.
A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. And so far Trump has done a pretty good job, and has pretty much done what he said he’d do. So I’ll admit I was wrong about the guy. He has my full support these days. There is only a couple of things I’d really like to see him do that he has not done.
One of which is to put Hillary Clinton behind bars, along with Obama and Eric Holder. Wouldn’t it be nice if while Democrats investigate Trump for no reason at all, if Trump were to counter by charging his Justice Department with gathering evidence and prosecuting the corrupt administration which came before him???
The others were talked about on the January 09, 2019 edition of Tucker Carlson. Today’s thoughts comes from this episode, which I enjoyed and agreed with a good portion of it. Trump has done a great job standing up for the wall. But there is a couple of issues discussed in this video that he also needs to address. The abuse of Trump supporters is one, and the censoring of Conservatives by Tech companies is another. Trump should go after those who would harass his base, as well as go after tech giants who discriminate against them as well!!! If he does this I believe 2020 will be his. If not…. Someone else will promise to and quite possibly win.
I suggest that you watch the whole episode. Tucker talks about Democrats and how EVERY Liberal “News” channel marches in lock-step with Democratic talking points. The first part of the video shows numerous examples of Democrats pounding the phrase “Manufactured Crisis” into the heads of Americans. It’s sad. They resemble puppets.
At approximately 13:45 in the video Carlson brings Jonathon Harris (A Democratic Commentator) onto the show to discuss the #Wall. One thing is for sure, this guy wants to blame Trump for the government shutdown. He only does it 25 times or so. He is a professional double-talker and a liar, that is his job. He appeared to struggle keeping his talking points on track. And his attempt at claiming 5 Billion dollars for a wall was a “Waste of Money” didn’t seem to fly either. 5 billion only solves 1/3 of our #Immigration problem according to him. SOLD!!! I’ll take that.
Moving on to my main point. Democrats have been discriminating against Conservatives for some time now. Since Conservatives are Trumps base, he needs to go after these people with a VENGEANCE! Because like the video says, conservatives have been targeted by the previous administration, as well as by the tech companies for some time now. Alex Jones was essentially silenced and thrown off of social media. Even PayPal dropped him, so he can no longer accept money the way he always has. Where does this end? They claimed he was a Racist, yet they proved nothing. They just shut him down.
Corporate America is now discriminating against white people when hiring. They even admit to doing so! Religious Freedom is under attack by the left too.
Left wing lunatics are attacking people because they are Trump supporters. People are getting punched in the face, having their skulls bashed in with bike locks, getting fired from their jobs etc…. And nothing is being done about it. The guy who hit multiple people with a bike lock (which is felony assault with a deadly weapon) initially got charged with the crime, but it was later dropped!!! How do you justify dropping charges against a guy who assaulted multiple people using a deadly weapon??? Why has nobody been charged with finding out who is responsible for this??? Why is that person not in jail too???
These are the things Trump needs to address. And he needs to address them NOW!!!
Like Tucker Carlson says in the video, if any of this stuff would have happened to Obama supporters the FBI would have been in their house before they got home. Democrats are trying to keep Trump “back on his heels” by launching 1000 investigations into him.
Trump needs to take control of his own Justice Department and start countering their legal attacks on him with legal attacks on Democrats!!! You have Maxine Waters calling for violence against Trump and his staff……. That must be illegal! You have leftist lunatics attacking people for wearing a Trump hat….. I KNOW that’s illegal!
You have public companies discriminating against people for their political views, shadow banning and censoring conservatives on Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Not to mention those who have their accounts deleted or silenced for a period of time because the liberal owners of these companies don’t like what they are saying.
It’s time that Trump starts looking out for his base!!!
He needs to prosecute those in government who protect these thugs. And he needs to file lawsuits on every tech company out there. And anyone who attacks a Trump supporter out of the blue for wearing a hat or a t-shirt needs to be prosecuted for a hate crime!
It’s time that we stop the madness. Trump has been doing a pretty good job, and I’m not knocking the guy……… But it is past time he addresses these issues. Not only is it the right thing to do, but I feel he’d wrap up his re-election by doing so. Because voters care about THEIR RIGHTS, and right now Conservative voters’ right are being trampled on over and over again…. and without consequence.
That’s unacceptable. It’s time to regain some form of order in this country. Because one thing is for sure, it’s NOT going to get any better!!! It’s going to get worse and worse. The more these people are allowed to get away with the more they’ll try to get away with. Allowing violence without consequences against ANY American citizen is unacceptable.
But allowing violence against your supporters when you are the President??? That’s just crazy!!! I know he has had his plate full. I know Democrats have been badgering him with unsubstantiated investigations and lawsuits and personal attacks.
But it’s time for President Trump to reign them in. Direct the #DOJ to put an end to this, NOW!!!
Because otherwise….. Trump is giving anyone running against him in 2020 ammunition.
Isn’t time – perhaps past time? – to disband and abolish the Democratic Party? And start over?
n the midst of all the statue pulling-downs, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi removing portraits of her predecessors as Speaker and demanding that various statues lining the halls of the US Capitol be removed, it is clearly the moment to ask:
Is it time to disband the Democrats? To abolish the Democratic Party outright?
After all, the portraits Pelosi removed were all Democrats. So too are those depicted in the statues she wants ousted. And, but of course, there was a reason.
Way back there in the ancient days of 2008, I took a detailed look at the Democratic Party’s record on race. It ran in The American Spectator with the title Democrats: The Missing Years. The Wall Street Journal picked up the piece as well.
I wrote the piece because as the Democratic Convention that nominated Senator Barack Obama was gathering, the Democratic National Committee had dedicated a portion of their website to recounting the party’s history. Except, well, the DNC’s account was missing – a lot. Not to mention was it deliberately and decidedly falsely trying to cast the Democrats as the party of civil rights. Clearly it was time to set the record straight, which I did. Here are a few excerpts:
“So what’s missing?
• There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery. There were 6 from 1840-1860.
• There is no reference to the number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves. There were 7 from 1800-1861
• There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were 20, from 1868-1948.
• There is no reference to “Jim Crow” as in “Jim Crow laws,” nor is there reference to the role Democrats played in creating them. These were the post-Civil War laws passed enthusiastically by Democrats in that pesky 52-year part of the DNC’s missing years. These laws segregated public schools, public transportation, restaurants, restrooms, and public places in general (everything from water coolers to beaches). The reason Civil Rights heroine Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the front of a “whites only” bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.
• There is no reference to the formation of the Ku Klux Klan, which, according to Columbia University historian Eric Foner became “a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” Nor is there reference to the University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease’s description of the Klan as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”
• There is no reference to the fact Democrats opposed the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. The Thirteenth banned slavery. The Fourteenth effectively overturned the infamous 1857 Supreme Court Dred Scott decision (made by Democrat pro-slavery Supreme Court justices) by guaranteeing due process and equal protection to former slaves. The Fifteenth gave black Americans the right to vote.
• There is no reference to the fact Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866. It was passed by the Republican Congress over the veto of Democratic President Andrew Johnson. The law was designed to provide blacks with the right to own private property, sign contracts, sue and serve as witnesses in a legal proceeding.
• There is no reference to the Democrats’ opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1875. It was passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses Grant. The law prohibited racial discrimination in public places and public accommodations.
• There is no reference to the Democrats’ 1904 platform, which devotes a section to “Sectional and Racial Agitation,” claiming the GOP’s protests against segregation and the denial of voting rights to blacks sought to “revive the dead and hateful race and sectional animosities in any part of our common country,” which in turn “means confusion, the distraction of business, and the reopening of wounds now happily healed.”
• There is no reference to four Democrat platforms, 1908-1920, that are silent on blacks, segregation, lynching, and voting rights as racial problems in the country mount. By contrast, the GOP platforms of those years specifically address “Rights of the Negro” (1908), oppose lynchings (in 1912, 1920, 1924, 1928) and, as the New Deal kicks in, speak out about the dangers of making blacks “wards of the state.”
• There is no reference to the DNC-sponsored Democrat Convention of 1924, known to history as the “Klanbake.” The 103-ballot convention was held in Madison Square Garden. Hundreds of delegates were members of the Ku Klux Klan, the Klan so powerful that a plank condemning Klan violence was defeated outright. To celebrate the Klan staged a rally with 10,000 hooded Klansmen in a field in New Jersey directly across the Hudson from the site of the Convention. Attended by hundreds of cheering Convention delegates, the rally featured burning crosses and calls for violence against African Americans and Catholics.
• There is no reference to the fact that it was Democrats who segregated the federal government of the United States, specifically at the direction of President Woodrow Wilson upon taking office in 1913. There is a reference to the fact that President Harry Truman integrated the military after World War II.
• There is a reference to the fact that Democrats created the Federal Reserve Board, passed a labor and child welfare laws, and created Social Security with Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal. There is no reference these programs were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks. Neither is there a reference to the thousands of local officials, state legislators, state governors, U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators who were elected as supporters of slavery and then segregation between 1800 and 1965. Nor is there reference to the deal with the devil that left segregation and lynching as a way of life in return for election support for three post-Civil War Democrat presidents, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt.
• There is no reference that three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House came from Democrats, or that 80 percent of the nay vote on the bill in the Senate came from the Democrats. Certainly, there is no reference to the fact that the opposition included future Democratic Senate Leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member) and Tennessee Senator Albert Gore, Sr., father of future Vice President Al Gore.
• Last, but certainly not least, there is no reference to the fact that Birmingham, Alabama Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor, who infamously unleashed dogs and fire hoses on civil rights protestors, was in fact — yes indeed — both a member of the Democratic National Committee and the Ku Klux Klan.”
Now, of course, all of this history of judging – and punishing – by skin color has now morphed into so-called “identity politics” – the son of segregation and grandson of slavery. The Democrats – past and very much present – are the Party of Race.
Pelosi’s removal of portraits of four of her predecessors, not to mention various statues, is a quiet admission that all of them were, yes indeed, leaders of the Democratic Party. The move by Princeton University to remove President Woodrow Wilson’s name from the university’s public policy school is a quiet admission that Wilson, a former Princeton president elected as the Democrat governor of New Jersey and who, as the leader of the progressive movement that was at the core of the Democratic Party, was indeed a serious racist. Which is exactly why Wilson was so at home as both prominent member and leader of the Democratic Party.
So as the statues come down and the portraits of Democrats are removed the obvious question.
Isn’t time – perhaps past time? – to disband and abolish the Democratic Party? And start over?

I propose that Americans call for EVERY OATH VIOLATOR currently holding political office in America to be REMOVED!
Can @realDonaldTrump & @TheJusticeDept & @GOP read???
Here is a FEDERAL STATUTE that has been violated by EVERY Mayor and Governor in riot stricken states!!!
WHY have they failed to REMOVE THEM???
Now I’m no lawyer myself, BUT I CAN READ!!!
I believe it’s beyond the time to ask for those in government seeking to overthrow our system of government be HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!! EVERY Mayor and EVERY Governor who has thumbed their noses at their oaths of office by ignoring the chaos and lawlessness in the streets as they ordered Police to stand down!
They ARE Enemies of the State!
They ARE Criminals!
They ARE guilty of violating their oaths! REMOVE THEM NOW!!!
So … if you’re White and are the proud parent of a Black Lives Matter placard or bumper sticker, or any derivative thereof, there’s a more appropriate decal missing from your car’s rear window — “Punked By My Black Brothers.”
If America is a racist country, can someone tell me why is it that the majority of African immigrants become successful, in short order?
Over the years, being curious about how Africans regard Black Americans, I have spent lots of time having that conversation with a number of Africans, and they have all disclosed the same, surprising response.
On balance, African immigrants have disdain and contempt for American Blacks and vehemently discouraged any inferred likeness … nor any empathy or sympathy for American Blacks. They believe that American Blacks are a “mongrel” breed that is lazy and in constant pursuit of entitlements that are not theirs to have. And chief among their objections has been the appropriated “African-American” moniker.
Does anyone find it odd that few … very few Blacks of my generation (66) and older have little-to-nothing to say of racism, leaving the majority of race-centric grievances to come from those too young to have experienced the grief about which they habitually complain?
These young and malevolent malcontents know nothing … absolutely nothing … of racism. Their plight simply is what I call, “victimhood entitlement.” They have been coddled for so long that they have evolved … or devolved … to demand a “right to be victims,” even though their chief victimizers stare back at them from their bathroom mirrors.
Yes, I agree. There is, in fact, something “systemic” about America, nowadays, but it has zilch to do with racism. Instead, it is Black America’s enslavement by denying themselves the binding of children to fathers and establishing the much warranted social parity and foundation upon which a meaningfully successful life can be built.
And sitting at their elbow, as Grand Pretorians, are guilt-ridden, Liberal White America, sanctioning, securing, and also demanding the notion of unrelenting victimhood for these grieving malcontents. Liberal White America have lain themselves prostrated in sacrificial homage to a cause about which they know no more than it obliges them with emotional release.
Instead of realizing the ruse on which they have been taken, Liberal White America has willingly come to its knees, puckered up, and are now fattened from the long suckling of the guilt teat. Through their participation in marches and riots, they have canonized their self-loathing and bestowed exotic royalty upon Blacks by the over-use of “African-American” as a new distinction and recognition of Authentic Blackness — a jewel of denial.
And the inherent danger in this behavior should not be ignored, for victimhood entrenchment is self-selective and, worse, self-fulfilling, meaning “…so long as ye both shall live.”
What Liberal White America is missing is that there is no real solidarity among Blacks … none, at all, as evidenced by the horrific incidents of Black-on-Black violence and murders. This guise of “togetherness” is a ruse, a notorious Snipe Hunt designed to “punk” Whites and gain their participation in their everpresent threat of mob violence, which, to date, has worked without any signs of abatement.
As those of us keen on the absence of raw racism look across the landscape to observe Whites joining in the incendiary protests, teetering on violence, we know that such White participation amounts to one of the most egregious displays of racism possible, which simply says that, without the involvement of Whites, the Black throngs simply are too marginalized, too racially insignificant to matter and, so, are undeserving of any serious consideration. Therefore, it is up to them, the Whites, to weigh in and bring warranted might to the fight.
Isn’t it time for Liberal White America … and their woke comrades … to take a different sort of knee? Let alone the Black rioters, the Black majority predictably ignorantly vote against their own interest, when they queue up behind Democrats who have never gained them anything. As such, they bear striking resemblance to what Russian demigod, Vladimir Lenin, referred to as “the Useful Idiots.”
If these Blacks are Useful Idiots, who and what does that make Liberal Whites who, by those idiots, are punked? Huh?!!
Perhaps, this creates the need for those Liberal Whites to take a break and slip into something comfortable … like a coma?

It’s sure refreshing to see an HONEST article for a change!
We MUST abolish POLICE UNIONS and Qualified Immunity!
EVERY BAD COP hides behind both of these
Secondly, police MUST stop “Broken Window Policing” and treating citizens as “revenue-cattle”
Policing for Profit is DESTROYING the relationship between communities and law enforcement across the country
Thirdly……. WE MUST be enforce the law EQUALLY ON EVERY CITIZEN! And what I mean by that is Police, Politicians, and Wealthy Elites (The Ruling Class) MUST be held accountable under the law THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE!
I’m a Police Accountability Activist and I see it all the time
For instance, Hillary Clinton & the Clinton Foundation owes the #IRS $400,000,000 and she has not been arrested
She didn’t get arrested for destroying the phones with hammers and wiping the server ALL had been subpoenaed by the FBI
If you or I did that we’d have our assets seized and sold at auction and we’d be put in federal prison FOREVER
You CANNOT enforce these insanely harsh laws on regular citizens and then completely IGNORE THEM when the ruling class violates them
That is the epitome of #Injustice. Bill Clinton perjured himself in federal court (it don’t matter what it was about) he perjured himself and WENT UNPUNISHED I’d have got 10 years in prison!
On what planet is that fair? Police violate people’s rights and sometimes beat, kick, even KILL citizens (sometimes completely innocent citizens) and go unpunished
The Police “Investigate themselves” and find “no wrongdoing”. EVERY POLICEMAN & EVERY JUDGE should be REQUIRED to serve 30 days in jail BEFORE they are allowed to send other people there!
If you watched “60 days in” on A&E you’d see that 3 police officers volunteered to participate in the show where they went to jail for 60 days.
EVERY ONE OF THEM QUIT THEIR JOBS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AFTERWARDS! EVERY ONE!
Because they could not justify to themselves sending people to that hellhole for stupid things like marijuana and traffic tickets after seeing the violence and mistreatment in America’s jails!
We MUST END POLICING FOR PROFIT! And we should ELIMINATE all police EXCEPT Sheriffs, who are ELECTED!
City Police answer ONLY to the Mayor! So citizens CANNOT fire them if they treat their community badly! We should have Sheriffs only.
EVERY ONE ELECTED by voters!
This would be an amazing start! This would change the face of policing and bring communities and police TOGETHER instead of dividing them.
In North Dakota rioters TRIED to burn their town to the ground! But the local Sheriff knew the community and treated them with respect!
So when Police needed help with these violent thugs the ENTIRE COMMUNITY armed itself and stood shoulder to shoulder with the Sheriff’s Department!
Not one person was injured, and not one fire was lit! Even though the town had bus loads of the same rioters that burned down half the country!
THAT is how EVERY COMMUNITY SHOULD BE!
After the Great War, the Great Depression, and the Holocaust, many thinkers tried to figure out what was wrong with the world. I’ve discussed some of their work in earlier posts, especially “The Idiocracy Experiment,” but have been saving The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements for when the uprisings, which I predicted in the middle of March, began. It’s not clear these widespread agitations will coalesce into broader rebellion or civil war but in any event, The True Believer is worth considering.
This little book, first published in 1951, made a big splash by taking an interdisciplinary look at the root causes of fascism and communism. Its author, Eric Hoffer (1898-1983), was a longshoreman and autodidact. Between unloading and loading ships and frequenting brothels, he eventually managed to write enough books to teach at Berkeley, albeit “only” as an adjunct.
Hoffer realized that the “abject poor” are too busy scraping by to cause much trouble for anyone. “Frustrated” people who thought they were going to have better lives are the ones who join rebellions and mass movements. The abject poor expect nothing and hence are not disappointed when that is what they receive. The frustrated had, or at least expected to have, a little something and when they lose it, or realize that they are not going to get it, they are susceptible to whatever ideology they happen to bump into.
That, Hoffer believed, explained the otherwise inexplicable phenomenon of Fascists becoming Communists and vice versa. “When people are ripe for a mass movement,” he argued, “they are usually ripe for any effective movement, and not solely for one with a particular doctrine or program. In pre-Hitlerian Germany it was often a tossup whether a restless youth would join the Communists or the Nazis.”
Mass movements, Hoffer noted, “do not usually rise until the prevailing order has been discredited. The discrediting is not an automatic result of the blunders and abuses of those in power, but the deliberate work of men of words with a grievance.” Articulate people with grievances abound today and they enjoy platforms as never before and many eager listeners.
Frustrated people suffuse America, making it ripe for mass movements, even ones based on incoherent or exploded ideologies like radical environmentalism, socialism, or, if I may coin a phrase, Lockdownism, the largely irrational belief that COVID-19 necessitated shutting down most of the economy.
Most importantly, many African-Americans expected big improvements stemming from improved access to the polls, the election of Barack Obama to the presidency, and better employment opportunities. Some looked forward to reparations for slavery or at least to a reduction in the ferocity of its heinous offspring, the carceral state.
But then the novel coronavirus hit and many African-Americans frustrated by the economic lockdowns, which either cost them their jobs or small businesses or, perhaps worse, saw them cajoled into assuming presumably large health risks to do “essential” jobs that paid no more than when they were considered just lowly service jobs. Then came data showing that they were dying disproportionately from COVID-19. The George Floyd video was the final straw.
Lots of other Americans are also frustrated. Their putative leaders have infantilized them through decades of paternalistic laws that try to micromanage their lives. It is beginning to dawn on them that election results are unlikely to change anything under our duopolistic, or revolving monopolistic, political system.
Leaders tell young Americans that they must graduate from university to enjoy “the good life” but many students accumulate more debt than valuable skills. Worse, many learn to hate themselves due to their gender, skin color, and/or religious beliefs and are inculcated with falsehoods about the crucial role of markets in our society.
Public schools and many universities, public and private, brainwash young people to believe that “democracy” means “voting,” as long as the vote is for a Republican or, better yet, a Democrat. Votes cast for others are simply “thrown away.” The fact that voting to change the outcome of an election is essentially irrational is not discussed. Celebrities tell people to “vote or die” and many of them do vote but, of course, never receive satisfaction, even when their Frick defeats the evil Frack. Or is Frick the evil one?
Either way, somebody wins and somebody loses and most people (those who don’t vote and those whose side loses, which combined almost always constitute a majority) remain frustrated as years turn into decades. Some turn to drugs and overdose, or kill themselves outright, or eventually succumb to diabetes or suffer other “deaths of despair.”
Others turn their desperation outward, seeking meaning in an otherwise frustrated life by telling other people how to behave. “A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding,” Hoffer warned. “When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people’s business.”
That intrinsic paternalism is one reason why classical liberalism does not lend itself well to mass movements. Another issue, Hoffer explained, is that “freedom aggravates at least as much as it alleviates frustration. Freedom of choice places the whole blame of failure on the shoulders of the individual.” The True Believer can believe in just about anything except him or herself.
“Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God,” Hoffer explained, “but never without belief in a devil. Usually the strength of a mass movement is proportionate to the vividness and tangibility of its devil.” He was speaking metaphorically of course and meant there must exist some credibly dangerous foe to combat, members of a despised race, religion, or political party perhaps. Americans today see more devils than one can count, from antifa to the KKK, One Percenters to the Deep State, and POTUS to the Speaker of the House.
The uprisings can be viewed as a search for the right devil, the one that will unite the most people with the most power because, as Hoffer explains, “common hatred unites the most heterogeneous elements. To share a common hatred, with an enemy even, is to infect him with a feeling of kinship, and thus sap his powers of resistance.”
But hope remains. The silent majority may well come to see the protestors as the devil to defeat and adopt sensible reforms, like the wholesale adoption of South Dakota’s constitution and laws. I kid you not. In 2015, I explained the way that South Dakota’s government and culture combined to ensure a thriving entrepreneurial political economy in Little Business on the Prairie.
Not even South Dakotans believed me then but anyone who has been paying attention will see that the state did not lock down, its economy is doing as well as it can given the negative externalities caused by the lockdown of its trading partners, its record on COVID-19 is solid, and as on Sunday night, as May turned into June, it easily repulsed an attempt to burn down its biggest city, Sioux Falls.
Don’t get me wrong, South Dakota has problems, but they pale in comparison to those in most other states. No state income taxes, Constitutional carry, high marks on economic freedom, and high scores on standardized national exams, achieved without creating a bunch of baby commies, should look pretty good to lots of Americans right about now. And precedents for copying the constitutions, statutes, and case law of other states abounds. Delaware, for example, copied New Jersey’s corporate law in toto to win the great charter mongering war in the early twentieth century.
In short, we may not be able to bring about libertarian paradise right now, but an approximation of it is achievable, if the media would only pay attention to “the land of infinite variety.” Right now, youngsters are playing tee ball and other forms of baseball in South Dakota, where people on radio stations remind listeners of their “personal responsibility” without getting fired and if they are razzed for it, it is for stating the obvious.

Mark Zuckerberg and his merry band of scumbags are stealing more from you than you know! I know a lot of people say “I don’t have anything to hide” but you’d be amazed at the information they steal from you. And let’s not even mention their business practices of selling that data, all while Censoring your Free Speech on their platform. Facebook deactivated my account for posting information about the coronavirus that did not fit their narrative, and I have never been so happy!
I want to share a video with you today that I REALLY SUGGEST YOU WATCH!!!
This video is on YouTube and is authored by The Hated One. I’ll tell you this, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook will surely be hating the “Hated One” for exposing this information to you!!! I’m really hoping to see Facebook go the way of MySpace. Their censorship of truthful posts and manipulation of people’s accounts for their benefit without giving consideration to their users makes me sick!
Here’s the Video!!!
I named this blog “America at War” when the Obama Administration was at war with our founding principles. Now America is truly at war with anti-American groups
I’m actually a Police Accountability Activist. So you will find few people more sympathetic to the cause of holding police accountable for their actions and stopping police brutality & misconduct against US citizens.
Police across this nation have been hiding behind Police Unions and Qualified Immunity for far too long. Both allow Bad Cops to go unpunished when they have truly broken the law, brutalized people, and violated citizen rights.
Democrats have been sewing the seeds of this insurrection literally for years. George Soros, Democrats, and media champion “Black Lives Matter” as some sort of legitimate organization which fights police brutality. Nothing can be further from the truth. Those same people even refuse to condemn the violent actions of the terrorist group “Antifa” when they brutally attack people around the country. Trump has finally declared Antifa a terrorist organization. But is Black Lives matter any better?
Antifa is nothing more than a Communist group of radicals hoping to destroy America as we know it. Their goal is the total collapse of American government, PERIOD.
They are not fighting “Fascism” they ARE the Fascist! Black lives Matter began in 2013 with this claim:
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people. BLM regularly holds protests speaking out against police killings of black people, and broader issues such as racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.
The problem I have with the above claim is simple, BLM promotes violence, they encourage Racism, and “systematic racism” simply does not exist in America except for the systematic racism against white people that has recently started.
I am against police brutality and misconduct towards ANY person! I have been an active activist against it for over 2 years now. These are REAL ISSUES in every police department across America. These issues are not black issues, they are American issues! Police brutality happens to people of ALL colors. To stop police brutality against ALL people has been my mission for the past several years. So when BLM makes the claim that this is a “black issue” I find it to be a Racist claim because they are choosing to ignore all victims of police brutality EXCEPT blacks. This organization is funded by George Soros and radical socialist democrats who want to destroy this country. They claim to be a peaceful group but since 2013 I don’t believe they have had a rally that did not end in violence and property damage. So their claim is a bald faced lie. PERIOD!
There is nothing that I’d like more than to join forces with ANY GROUP that fights police misconduct and brutality, and endorses police being held accountable for their actions. But that group cannot live in fairy tale that claims this has anything to do with racism! I’m not even going to claim there are no racist police because there may be, I suppose. But I’ve NEVER seen it, and I’ve literally watched THOUSANDS of legitimate police misconduct videos obtained from body cameras or cell phone video.
The same thing that allowed these riots to get out of hand is what has led to a rise in police misconduct. That is lack of accountability! Police officers are very rarely held accountable for crimes against the public because they are protected by Qualified Immunity and defended by Police Unions. Both should be abolished.
The riots and looting we have witnessed over the past few days is a direct result of police not arresting people for violence and property damage! Generally under the direction of their democrat bosses in the Mayor’s Office and/or Governor’s Office. These people are NOT protesting the death of George Floyd! They are agents of chaos funded by enemies of the United States, many from inside our own government! I personally believe that their goal is to implement martial law on the streets of America. I speak ill of Democrats but Republicans are no better. I mean they talk a good game but when it comes down to actually doing something it never happens!
They are two wings of the same bird. Republicans held BOTH HOUSES of Congress and passed nothing that Democrats would have not passed themselves! Party does not really matter, their loyalties lie with corporations and people like George Soros who wants to destroy this country. With that being said at least Republicans don’t spew nonsense about socialism the way Democrats do. But their ACTIONS are relatively the same. It’s all a show to keep America divided and keep them in power. THAT is all they care about.
Americans are angry over their rights being violated during the “PLANdemic” and they needed a diversion. So politicians feeling the heat, along with the corporate controlled media incited these riots using those they have been indoctrinating for YEARS.
President Trump has performed pretty well up until now despite surrounding himself with deep state scumbags, to my surprise. Unfortunately he has begun listening to these jackals before making policy decisions. I may be wrong, but I believe Trump genuinely loves this country and the American way of life, demonstrating that at heart, he is no politician! I was not originally a supporter, but have grown to respect him.
This is where Trump MUST prove his mettle. As an American who fights police misconduct and violence on a daily basis I have to tell you that I was disappointed with the lack of action by Police during these riots! It reflects badly on Trump and ALL government, which is exactly what these groups wanted! These groups were NOT protesters, they were terrorists! And they should have brought under control by ANY MEANS NECESSARY! If that means shooting them down in the streets then I’m okay with that. I advocate against “unnecessary violence” by police, not for giving up! Their job is to keep Law and Order and they failed miserably at it!
While I’m against police brutality when it’s unnecessary, there comes a time to lock and load and go to work! What message did we send to the WORLD over the past week? That you can pretend to protest and take over police stations, beat people to death in the streets, and to be unchallenged while doing it? Because that is EXACTLY the message I saw sent. Police needed to make arrest, and if they needed the Marine Corps standing behind them to make those arrest then so be it! They KILL people attacking police every day of the week but these people get a pass? WTF???
These are petulant children who have lacked an authority in their lives. With the exception of their radical college professors, and the radical racists at CNN & MSNBC. When they attacked the White House without consequence I KNEW this was a plan to institute martial law. I no longer have faith in my government! And what is sad is THAT is exactly what these terrorists are fighting for! I believe that the Chinese have bought every politician in America. We know they’ve bought most of the college professors in this country! We have proof of it, they have been charged with Treason.
When I advocate for Police Accountability I’m NOT saying to “Give up”! There comes a time to stand your ground folks! The past several days have been that time! These agents of chaos will KILL YOU! The way to stop that is to KILL THEM FIRST! I hate to advocate for putting the military in American streets, since that is probably what the Tyrant scumbags in our government want, but there comes a time to show who runs this show! And that is NOT criminal thugs, rioters, and looters! I believe that Trump stopped short when he declared Antifa a “Terrorsts organization” because BLM has PROVEN that they are a terrorist group as well! They have not had one rally where violence and property damage did not result since 2013.
So for Pete’s sake Trump, get control over the country, your cabinet, and EVERY government Agency in this country and STOP letting them lead you by the nose, in the direction they want you to go! Your instincts are pretty good from what I’ve seen. So go with them! We MUST have law and order to maintain our Liberty!
Black Lives Matter is funded by radicals and enemies of America like George Soros. They ARE a racist group, no matter what they tell you. Their NAME is racist!
I will support ANY non-racist group that advocates for Police Accountability and reform. Because there are BAD COPS hiding behind the Thin Blue Line, Police Unions, and Qualified Immunity! I see videos which PROVE IT every day! Just like these rioters, police need to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE and arrested when they do wrong. That would show them bad behavior WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! That in and of itself would prevent 95% of Police Brutality and Misconduct, I guarantee it.
It’s no different than the criminals we see in the streets of America. Once they KNOW they’ll be arrested and held accountable for their crimes, 95% of them will stop! If police arrested these criminals on day ONE we would not have seen days 2,3,4, and 5 etc….
Discipline enforces good behavior. Lack of Discipline encourages BAD BEHAVIOR. PERIOD! That goes for Cops, Kids, and Criminals folks! God Bless You ALL, stay safe and defend yourself, your family, and your property. DEMAND Police are held accountable and also DEMAND that violent criminals and thugs are held accountable too! That is the balancing act that Freedom REQUIRES!
