Corrupt media who accused Trump of 'inciting' violence are silent when Democrat Maxine Waters does just that

Legacy outlets covered Trump's speech with the pre-determined premise of incitement. They have either ignored or dismissed Water's call to 'get more confrontational.'

On Saturday, California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters went to Minnesota and demanded militant demonstrators "get more confrontational" this week in the absence of a guilty verdict in the George Floyd murder trial of former Minneapolis Police Office Derek Chauvin.

"We are looking for a guilty verdict," Waters said. Anything less, would be an insult to warrant insurrection. "Not manslaughter. No no no, this is guilty. For murder."

Protesters gather in Columbus, Ohio after police shoot 16-year-old black girl attempting to stab another Black teen with kitchen knife


Comment: They sure are active these days, eh? This occurred right as the verdict in the trial of Floyd 'murderer' Derek Chauvin was being announced. Already the Twitterati are raging at the cop in this incident (also White) for shooting dead the girl attempting to gut another girl...

Protesters and police at the site of a fatal shooting by an officer in Columbus, Ohio, April 20, 2021.
Around the time a Minnesota jury declared an ex-cop guilty for last year's death of George Floyd, a 16-year-old black girl was fatally shot by police in Columbus, Ohio, sparking another Black Lives Matter protest.

Columbus PD officers responding to a 911 call about an "attempted stabbing" around 4:45 pm Eastern time on Tuesday. The caller said a female was trying to stab them, and hung up, police said, according to local media. One person was wounded in an "officer-involved shooting" and transported to hospital in critical condition, where she died at 5:21, police said.

"This afternoon a young woman tragically lost her life," Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther tweeted, urging residents to "remain calm" and allow the Bureau of Criminal Investigations to "gather the facts."

Comment: And here we go again. The timing of this almost seems planned.


Get out of the cities. Get out while you still can.

Minnesota cop Chauvin found guilty of 'murdering' George Floyd, faces up to 75 years in prison - Leftists, led by Biden, demand 'moar justice'

derek chauvin trial
Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on all counts - second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter - in the death of George Floyd.

The jury returned its verdict on Tuesday afternoon after just 10 and a half hours of deliberation.

As the verdict was read out Chauvin looked on with no visible emotion in the Hennepin County courtroom, where jurors spent three weeks listening to testimony about the day Floyd died - under the weight of the 45-year-old officer's knee - during an arrest on May 25, 2020.

Judge Peter Cahill thanked the jury on behalf of the state of Minnesota for not only jury service but 'heavy duty jury service'.

The state moved immediately to have Chauvin's bail revoked pending sentencing, which will happen in eight weeks. Judge Cahill did so and Chauvin was remanded into custody, and taken from the courtroom in handcuffs. On Tuesday night he was transferred to Oak Park Heights, Minnesota's only maximum security prison.

Chauvin faces a minimum sentence of 12.5 years and maximum of 40 years if he serves terms for each charge concurrently.

If served consecutively, he faces between 29 and 75 years.

Comment: This verdict doesn't mean that the situation in US cities will calm down and 'return to normal'.

The 'compassionate ones' are only just getting started. Continue maintaining social distancing from them. Leave to more rural, saner parts if you can. This 'inflection point', as Prezident Camacha Harris put it, will only embolden them to tighten their embrace with the forces of destruction and chaos.

In global lockstep: French govt launches Israeli-style 'Covid vaccine passport' for 'future freedom of movement'

France has become the first country in Europe to embrace a "digital coronavirus travel certificate" system - a controversial electronic vaccine passport similar to those that have surfaced in Israel and parts of the US.

The TousAntiCovid app is slated to debut next Thursday, a year after the concept was devised in Brussels to serve as the root framework for a contact-tracing program and immunity passport for France. Going forward, it will be expanded to include vaccine data as well, with the relevant information stored on users' smartphones.


Comment: Easy workaraound there: don't own (or disclose that you own) a smartphone.


During the trial, travelers will be registered as they pass through connection points in Corsica and overseas departements (similar to counties) in France. Paris hopes the design will not just confirm the positive or negative test status of users, but also track their vaccination status.


Comment: Paris hopes that, eh. Good luck getting a majority of French to voluntarily comply!


Starting on April 29, the trial system can be used to verify whether the carrier has been vaccinated or not, an official told Le Monde on Tuesday. The system will subsequently serve as one part of a "reinforced, consolidated, and standardized" pan-European system, according to Minister of Digital Transition Cedric O, who has been in contact with other countries and major airlines in an effort to set up a functional, glitch-free system going forward.


Comment: Yes, that is his actual surname! Watch as most French give O foxes about complying with this watered-down 'green pass/vaccine passport' surveillance system.

Father jailed for calling his transgender child, who was born female, his 'daughter' and denouncing 'her' medical treatment

Placard saying, Protect the Trans kids, during the Trans march. Spectators displayed their support towards the transgender and non-binary people while demonstrating on the streets of Toronto in a Trans March during the Pride Month.
Canada - "True North, strong and free," according to its anthem - is in thrall to transgender ideology. On Friday, a father was sent to prison. His crime? Speaking out against the medical transition of his 14-year-old daughter.

The man complained about doctors giving puberty blockers to the 14-year-old, and referred to the child with the pronouns 'she' and 'her', in defiance of a court order. He was sent to prison for six months for contempt of court.

British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Michael Tammen denounced his behaviour as outrageous contempt of a court order imposed to protect the girl's identity. He handed down a "strong denunciatory sentence" on the man for "blatantly, wilfully and repeatedly" defying publication bans.

But what else could a father do when his daughter suddenly decided that she was a boy, and was then promptly affirmed by a psychologist before being referred to an endocrinologist for puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones?

Comment: This is what makes Bill C-16 so dangerous, and what Jordan Peterson was speaking up against.

Former home of defense witness in Chauvin trial targeted by vandals: police

Vandals targeted the former home of an expert who testified in former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin's defense, leaving a pig head and blood, according to police.

The Santa Rosa Police Department said in a statement on Saturday that officers responded to a call at approximately 3 a.m., after an unnamed victim said a group of individuals dressed in black threw a pig's head on their front porch and spattered blood on the front of their home.

Barry Brodd, a use-of-force expert who was called to the stand by the defense in Chauvin's trial last week, previously lived at the house. Police said that in the statement that it appeared "the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony."

However, Brodd had not lived at the residence for several years, and he no longer lives in California.

Police said the blood appeared to be animal blood.

Approximately 45 minutes after officers arrived at the house in the California city, a large statue of a hand in front of a shopping mall was also vandalized with suspected animal blood. The perpetrators reportedly left a sign in front of the statue with an image of a pig that read "oink oink."

Comment: If Chauvin is found not guilty, the jurors may well have to enter witness protection! Especially with Biden and Waters fanning the flames.

Arizona bans 'vaccination passports' and ends wearing masks in school requirements, prompting backlash

Glendale, Arizona vaccination site
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says the state's progress in the immunization campaign means the nearly yearlong school mask mandate can be repealed and that there is no need for people to present proof of vaccination.

The Republican governor signed an executive order prohibiting state and local officials from requiring people to provide their vaccination status in order to receive services or enter a specific area.

Arizona residents must not be required to share their private medical data, Ducey tweeted. "While we strongly recommend all Arizonans get the #COVID19 vaccine, it's not mandated in our state - and it never will be," he wrote.
Ducey added that nearly 4.5 million vaccine doses have been administered across the state with a population of over 7.2 million. He said that over 1.9 million people have been fully vaccinated in Arizona to date.

Comment: While some folks are enjoying a breath of fresh air, others cling to the restrictions as if their lives depend upon them.

Apple lifts ban on social network Parler after it agrees to 'content moderation' but users worry 'free speech' site's now neutered

The self-proclaimed 'free speech social network' Parler will be allowed to return to Apple's App Store after it was previously banned for not censoring enough content and was also accused of allowing threats of violence.

In a Monday letter to Republicans, Senator Mike Lee (Utah) and Representative Ken Buck (Colorado) - who had requested info on Parler's ban - Apple claimed that the app could now return to the store as it had "proposed updates to its app and the app's content moderation practices."

"Apple anticipates that the updated Parler app will become available immediately upon Parler releasing it," the company continued. Apple said the decision was made after "substantial conversations" in an effort to "bring the Parler app into compliance" with app-store guidelines.

Comment: The gatekeepers proved they can lock access any time they want.

Fear and loathing in Tallahassee: Joy Reid's baseless allegations against Ron DeSantis show just how scared the media are of him

MSNBC's Joy Reid • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis
MSNBC host Joy Reid implied an investigation into rep. Matt Gaetz may implicate Florida governor Ron DeSantis, despite there being not a shred of evidence. Imagine the media reaction if Tucker Carlson did the same to a Democrat.

Ron DeSantis is a rather popular figure among conservatives in the United States. His brashness and anti-lockdown stance have resonated with many on the right. On top of this the Florida Governor is a strong advocate of constitutional rights, specifically the rights of, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms. These elements are steadily coming together to make him a strong potential candidate for the Republican nominee in the 2024 presidential election.

No wonder Democrats fear and loathe him so much, especially those in the media.

Joy Reid of MSNBC encapsulated this animosity recently. She was discussing the sex trafficking allegations against Florida representative Matt Gaetz on her show, and spitballed the idea that the investigation might find something on Ron DeSantis. Reid said:
"If you're Ron DeSantis, does it feel like it's creeping closer to you? Because these are your friends, these are your allies."
