SJW paradise: San Francisco thief brazenly fills trash bag with store items as security guard can only record the crime

A thief was caught on video filling a trash bag with items from a San Francisco Walgreens store Monday while a security guard stood in the aisle and recorded the crime.

The crook ended up easily bicycling past the guard — who attempted to snag the bag to no avail — and exiting the store in broad daylight.

Comment: Wherever there's a rise in crime due to lax law enforcement, look for Soros' Open Society Foundation somewhere in the background. It made a huge push for control of state and local judiciaries. Those unfortunate cities are now reaping the results:


North Korean defector says 'even North Korea was not this nuts' after attending Ivy League Columbia University

As American educational institutions continue to be called into question, a North Korean defector fears the United States' future "is as bleak as North Korea" after she attended one of the country's most prestigious universities.

Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim.

One of several hundred North Korean defectors settled in the United States, Park, 27, transferred to Columbia University from a South Korean university in 2016 and was deeply disturbed by what she found.

"I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think," Park said in an interview with Fox News. "I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying."

A car drives past the scene Monday, June 14, 2021, where police and witnesses say a woman was killed and multiple others were injured when an SUV struck a parked car and tossed it into demonstrators during a protest late Sunday in Uptown Minneapolis.
A woman was killed and three other people were injured when a vehicle drove into demonstrators during a protest in the Minneapolis neighborhood where a Black man was fatally shot this month during his attempted arrest by members of a federal task force, police said Monday.

The crash happened at about 11:40 p.m. Sunday in Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood. Witnesses said the driver of an SUV struck a parked car, tossing it into the crowd of demonstrators. Police spokesman John Elder did not confirm that account, and said authorities are still investigating.

Comment: There are big changes in the climate and environment in that part of the world and on the whole planet in general.

Are all these changes influencing people who live there to do crazy things?

Did the PTB intentionally used the 2014 Ferguson unrest to create and fund the violent BLM movement, so they can distract the public from the real dangers such as the rapid changes in nature?

Is this tragic incident just another in a row that will be used to distract people from the real problems, like drastic environmental changes and catastrophic economic decline?

The main focus of the people is on BLM protests and the "police brutality" that is hugely exaggerated by the media.

In fact, most of the violence comes from the BLM movement. It looks like the PTB is just directing and manipulating people's anger and energy in the direction they need so they can accomplish their agenda.

Jon Stewart tosses media grenade: Hijacks Colbert Show with lab-leak rant, liberal Twitter melts down

Jon Stewart appears on Colbert Show
Comedian Jon Stewart overpowered Stephen Colbert's ability to shill on Monday, hijacking the Late Show's return to a live (and fully vaccinated) audience with an epic rant on the COVID-19 lab-leak theory.

"I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science. Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic, which was more than likely caused by science," Stewart said after Colbert asked how he was feeling about the scientific response to COVID-19.

"Do you mean perhaps there's a chance that this was created in a lab?" asked Colbert, adding "There's an investigation."

"A chance?" shot back Stewart - kicking the door open.

Comment: Jon Stewart is an original who has never been afraid to buck the MSM narrative, unlike sellout Colbert.

Satirical site The Babylon Bee took on The New York Times and won. Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon asked for a correction, and they got it.

Satire site The Babylon Bee took on The New York Times and won. Censored by Facebook back in March, The Babylon Bee became the subject of a Times story in which the Grey Lady claimed that the Bee was an example of a "far-right misinformation site" that "sometimes trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire."

Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon asked for a retraction, and they got it. Dillon posted to Twitter that the Times had responded to the letter and actually removed the defamatory statements from the article.

The real reasons why California leftists are terrified of the AR-15

Mao quote
This past week a US District judge in California struck down the state's 30 year ban on high capacity semi-automatic rifles which leftists label "assault weapons". The judge called the ban unconstitutional (which it is). In response, the progressive media has lost their collective minds, screeching in horror at the idea of AR-15 rifles being legal within the borders of their carefully manicured socialist Utopia state. Their most commonly expressed reaction seems to be fear.

Fear is rarely a rational thing. When someone operates based on fear they tend to make terrible decisions and support oppressive causes and laws. Fear leads to an obsession with control. Fearful people also tend to look for large mobs of other terrified people so they can feel safe and secure and anonymous. They want to be able to act impulsively on their fears without having to face consequences for it later.

Leftists are driven primarily by two factors: Narcissism, and yes, fear. I've discussed their narcissism at great length in past articles; now I think we should delve into their fear.

The most common leftist retort to the question "Why are you so afraid of the AR-15?" will usually be a snort of indignant disbelief followed by the words: "Because it's a military weapon designed to kill a lot of people quickly...idiot!"

But this is not an argument, it is an expression of irrational fear. Why are they, as individuals, afraid of the AR-15? What are the chances that they will EVER be faced with a person intent on killing them with an AR-15? And, why do they believe that disarming innocent law abiding Americans will somehow save them from their paranoia?

Houston Nurses protest after losing their jobs for refusing COVID-19 shots

Houston Nurses Protest
More than a hundred hospital employees and supporters gathered in protest of the firing of employees who reject COVID-19 shots.

On Monday afternoon, employees of the Houston Methodist hospital system were joined by supporters from around the Houston area as they were suspended without pay for saying no to COVID-19 injections. The employees are now suing Houston Methodist in an effort to fight against COVID19 mandates.

The Houston Methodist hospital operates eight hospitals with more than 26,000 employees. On March 31, Methodist CEO Dr. Marc Boom announced that the shots - which have not received approval by the US Food and Drug Administration - would be mandatory for all employees. Houston Methodist hospital employees were told to take the shots by June 7th or lose their jobs. Methodist also required hospital managers to have at least one COVID shot by April 15th. Those who chose not to receive the treatments by Monday now have 2 final weeks before they will officially be fired.

"Mandating the vaccine was not a decision we made lightly. ... Because science has proven that the Covid-19 vaccines are not only safe, but extremely effective, it became an easier decision to make," Boom wrote in a letter to staff in April.

Comment: No. Mandating the unproven and very arguably unsafe vaccines for his employees was an easier decision to make because Boom is a know-nothing bureaucrat who was probably "incentivized" to do so.

Despite reassurances from Boom, 117 employees filed suit against Houston Methodist for "forcing its employees to be human 'guinea pigs' as a condition for continued employment" by requiring an experimental treatment which has only been authorized for emergency use.

Supreme Court rejects retroactive sentence reductions for small amounts of crack cocaine

A general view of the Supreme Court on June 1, 2021, in Washington, D.C.
The Supreme Court ruled against a Florida man who sought to have his sentence for a low-level drug crime reduced, holding that a bipartisan push in Congress in 2018 to ease such punishments didn't address his circumstances.

Though the question in the case was narrow, it arrived as bipartisan majorities in Congress have sought to rethink long sentences for relatively small amounts of drugs. And it sparked a heated debate between one of the high court's leading conservative voices and one of its leading liberals over the history of drug sentencing and whether Congress should "right this injustice" - despite the fact that all nine justices agreed on the outcome in the case.

Associate Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the opinion for the court. Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a concurring opinion in which she agreed with most of the court's reasoning but described the outcome as "no small injustice" and encouraged Congress to change the law to address similar situations.
