While the jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on all charges, he faces a maximum of 75 years in prison but what he would face is probably the hardest time of all. Why? Being a cop, he will be a target in prison and highly likely to be killed. Thus, they will probably keep him in special housing – protective custody. He will probably wish he got the death sentence for death will be a far easier way to do your time.
Most people would have said guilty even if this were not a politically charged case. But the real problem is all the political comments such as Maxime Waters. With politicians commenting before the verdict and even Biden saying he hoped the jury would make the right decision, there is no way he actually had a fair trial under the law and that can keep the case alive for probably the next decade. In the real world, he would be entitled to a new trial. But this is such a national case, it is hard to expect judges to actually rule according to the law. They would run the personal risk of people claiming they are protecting a racist.
This of course has nothing to do with his actual guilt or innocence. It would have been such a simple matter for politicians to just refuse to comment before the verdict. Most politicians reacted AFTER the verdict which is the way it should have been. That would have killed any appeal concerning the denial of a fair trial. Often, in a high-profile case, the trial might be moved to another court outside the area. But this is a national case so that stands little hope of finding an area that would be unfamiliar.
While in any other case, a defendant would probably win a mistrial motion. But in this case, it is hard to see how a judge would rule in Chauvin’s favor for a new trial without risking their own lives and that of their family. It is not a question of being innocent. It is just a question when politicians do not understand they have to keep their mouths shut and let the jury decide the case – that is what the Constitution is all about. While there will be appeals, I doubt he will win a new trial.
Police officers were called to the 3100 block of Legion Lane, north of Chatterton Road, in Columbus, Ohio, just after 4:30 pm for a disturbance call. When police arrived 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant (black female) was in the process of attempting to stab one woman with a knife and then attempting to stab a second woman (see screengrab below). One officer opened fire, Ma’khia Bryant was shot and killed.
Columbus police released the bodycam footage from the shooting.
JoeBama injected the advance racial narrative today giving support and cover for rioters in Minnesota if the outcome of the verdict in the Chauvin trial is not the “right” one according to his own views. Biden stated during media remarks: “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict, which I think is overwhelming in my view.”
To be clear, the intent of these remarks is to give cover to those who will take to the streets and riot if the jury does not “reach the right verdict”…
This is sociopathic level political manipulation by the Obama Chicago crew; the real team behind the administration. Continuing to push the ‘anger games’ in the United States is an ongoing effort of the Obama-minded leftists and communist activist groups who support them.
FULL ANALYSIS – In 2020 President Trump visited a vandalized St. John’s church in Washington DC. Democrats and national media immediately declared it a stunt, a “photo op”. However, at exactly the same time President Trump was visiting St. Johns’, candidate Joe Biden was visiting Bethel AME church in Wilmington, Delaware, and the media were very careful to avoid labeling this captured moment:
Like the organized riots, looting and subsequent media political constructs, the Biden (actually Obama team) strategy was heavily scripted and not organic. From the moment representative James Clyburn aligned his AME church network with Barack Obama’s Chicago machine there was a strategy at work.
Clyburn uses the old-fashioned racial playbook through the AME church network. The AME network includes Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Meanwhile Obama historically used the modern race-based network: the Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party. The NoI and NBPP are also allied with DNC Chairman Tom Perez.
Tom Perez was the head of the DOJ Civil Rights Division… which is not coincidental because the election of 2020 is the second time both networks have merged upon, and attempted to activate, the Black Lives Matter crowd. The first time they merged was in Orlando and Miami during the 2012 “Justice for Trayvon” movement.
Black Lives Matter came out of the organization known as “The Dream Defenders”. The defenders were the younger generational version of the civil rights AME network.
In 2012/2013 President Obama and Tom Perez were able to blend the Dream Defenders into an alignment with Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam, and the New Black Panther Party.
As an outcome of a more bitter ideology, the Dream Defenders became more antagonistic and combative when they launched the rebranded version, ‘Black Lives Matter’.
The newly blended Black Lives Matter network had their first heavy visibility with the “Justice for Mike Brown” movement that destroyed Ferguson, Missouri.
After the Mike Brown pretense collapsed the BLM group moved to Baltimore to exploit the false narrative that surrounded the death of Freddie Gray.
Baltimore was then set ablaze with the leadership of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who famously said it was important to give the riot crowd “space to destroy.”
While BLM was fulfilling their role as on-the-street activists, the parents of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown were making financial trips through the AME church network.
AME holds the faith-based role while advancing an older and more traditional generational approach toward racial grievance. The BLM message targets a younger generation with guilt and influence to break windows and riots on behalf of ‘social justice’. To achieve their common goal each group agreed to, or should I say: ‘learned to‘, stay in their lane.
When Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton made independent moves toward the younger BLM activists they were ridiculed and dispatched. Lessons were learned. The older race hustlers now stick to the AME crowd where there is a generational respect.
♦SLIGHTED – Despite Barack Obama leaning heavily on the AME network in ’07/’08, by the time you get to ’12/’13, without re-election needs, the AME was less valued. The open preference for Obama toward the BLM team was visible. After reelection in 2012 team Obama shifted toward expanding political influence through the Latino community.
Tom Perez and President Obama sought to assemble another race-based coalition with hopes they could merge Latinos (La Raza) with BLM. However, all of this focus on BLM and the “dreamers” created a problem. Without maintenance of the social network the AME connection to the Obama-controlled DNC started to fray.
Obama’s focus on a youth movement meant Democrats were taking AME support for granted. Worse yet, the older AME activists gained nothing from the modern Obama coalition; ‘gaining nothing’ means financial benefits were diminished.
Without their traditional/customary indulgence fees the national AME leadership network, the racial patriarchs of the democrat party, were not happy.
The financial disappointment shows up in many visible ways throughout 2015 and 2016, but the most visible way was in September 2016 during the all black Baptist Convention in Kansas City Missouri. (see here)
There were 25,000 participants at the KC Convention and Hillary Clinton was scheduled to deliver the keynote address. When it came time for her speech only around ten percent of the general session audience showed up.
It was the first visible sign the AME network leadership was not at all happy with the modern DNC party apparatus as constructed by the new Obama coalition.
The AME network felt slighted and they literally left Clinton with tens-of-thousands of empty seats at the convention. CTH noticed but the media mostly ignored. Those of you around at the time will remember the CTH position after this convention optic was the 2016 election looked solid for Donald Trump.
LESSON LEARNED – Fast forward to just before Super Tuesday 2020. Bernie Sanders has momentum, and is about to become unstoppable. Bernie was a threat to remove DNC leadership power the same way Trump removed RNC party power in 2016.
Party power is money; billions from the big club at stake. Now we see why it was critical for Team Obama (BLM) and the AME team to unite quickly that Super-Tuesday weekend; which is exactly what they did.
While James Clyburn quickly notified the AME network, former President Barack Obama activated his control over the DNC network; and signaled to all other primary candidates they needed to drop out in a designed sequence. The DNC Club made offers they could not refuse. Remember, club rules.
James Clyburn delivered on his end (AME), and Obama delivered on his (DNC/BLM). The rest is history. However, within that history is also a realization that all the alignment means nothing if they don’t successfully activate the network. That unified activation is exactly what is happening now in the U.S.
The BLM team has been reactivated back onto the streets to create the Alinsky inspired chaos. Meanwhile the AME team openly embraced Joe Biden and push heavily for his election. As a result the optics of Joe Biden taking a knee at Bethel AME church were heavily scripted, carefully planned and ironically very appropriate.
The media narrative became “everyone must take a knee.” Note: the DNC network always use three-word phrases: “Hope and Change”, “Take A Knee” etc.
Without the AME network Joe Biden did not stand a chance. For all intents and purposes James Clyburn was/is calling all the shots. Clyburn was also the one to approve of Obama’s choice for Biden’s vice-president, Kamala Harris. The tone-deaf and arrogant lessons from Hillary in 2016 loomed heavy as leverage and as a stark reminder of just how important Clyburn was to Obama’s plan to install Joe Biden. The AME network will not let the DNC forget it.
The message from James Clyburn to DNC Chairman Tom Perez, and by extension to Barack Obama, was really simple: without me you would have been dealing with Bernie Sanders, and the DNC would be on the brink of disassembly… so ‘take a knee.’
Obama doesn’t care so long as the larger goals are achieved. Advance radical leftist policies, destroy the American capitalistic system and fundamentally change the United States by diminishing it, while simultaneously keeping all the wealth under the control of an elite group of aligned interests.
Ok, the Associated Press Stylebook has joined the woke crowd. They now have said that a “mistress” to a married man can no longer be called a “mistress,” but “companion, friend or lover.” I think many wives prefer “homewrecker” or just “bitch.” Meanwhile, realtors are told to no longer call the master bedroom “master” because that symbolizes slavery and it should be called the “primary” bedroom.
Kids in New York City schools have been told not to refer to their parents as “parents, mother, or father,” because that will offend some who is an orphan. I suppose the new title should be my “Thing One” and “Thing Two,” but perhaps that might offend those who have a thing in the box as in the “Adam’s Family.” So if you are married with a “mistress” on the side, she is now your “second companion,” and your wife is now your “first companion” in a divorce setting. Does this all change sexual harassment to unsolicited companionship? I guess next it will be wrong to call a politician corrupt. He is just someone who avoids responsibility! Perhaps we have to revise the entire legal system thanks to woke culture!
A follower of Louis Farrakhan named Noah Green attacked the White House and Capitol Complex earlier today killing one police officer and wounding another. The suspect rammed his vehicle into a police barricade before exiting the vehicle with a knife and being shot by responding officers.
Had this been a white male suspect the manipulative narrative about the need for capitol hill security would have been the preferred narrative of the media. However, with the race and ideological characteristics of the disturbed suspect now identified by independent sources, all useful pretense will be dropped and the story will disappear soon.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A motorist rammed a vehicle into U.S. Capitol police on Friday and brandished a knife, killing one officer and injuring another and forcing the Capitol complex to lock down in an attack that police said did not immediately appear to be terrorism-related.
Police responded by firing on the suspect, who died.
Yogananda Pittman, acting chief of the United States Capitol Police, told a news conference that he drove into the officers then hit a barricade and got out of the car, lunging at them with a knife in his hand.
One officer was killed and the other was injured, she said.
“It does not appear to be terrorism-related but obviously we’ll continue to investigate,” said Robert Contee, acting chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington. Police said the suspect was unknown to them, they had yet to determine what had motivated him, and they did not identify him.
“Clearly this was someone who was actively trying to just get at whoever or whatever – we just don’t know right now, so we have a responsibility to investigate that to get to the bottom of this. Whether the attack was at law enforcement, or whoever, we have a responsibility to get to the bottom of it and we’ll do that,” Contee said. (read more)
Just a short note to bookmark for later 2024 reference about political opportunism and parseltongue. You might remember South Dakota Kristi Noem being adamant that she was not vetoing a legislative bill blocking male (transgender) athletes from Women’s sports. [HERE] Yesterday she took action to send the bill back to the state house. Read the rejection letter from the governor’s office:
Note: “bills returned shall be treated in the same manner as vetoed bills”…. with her signature; yet she still proclaims she did not veto the bill.
It’s a small note, but a note worth making nonetheless. For a politician who claims she speaks frankly and truthfully, there’s a great deal of parseltongue, a decepticon trait, on this one. Disappointing, just sayin’.
When asked why she doesn’t support the bill, Noem said she has received advice and counsel that the law would fail if challenged in federal court. Specifically Noem implied the NCAA would sue South Dakota and she believes the state would lose a lawsuit based on the law. If that is her position, essentially she is attempting to avoid litigation, proactively planning to lose that litigation, on a law supported by the majority in her state.
Boulder, Colorado, law enforcement have named the suspect in the King Sooper’s grocery store shooting yesterday. The shooter is 21-year-old Ahmad al-Aliwi Alissa.
WASHINGTON POST – Ten people killed at a Colorado grocery store, including a Boulder police officer, have been identified, as has the 21-year-old rifle-wielding shooter.
Law enforcement officials said the suspect, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, was shot in the leg as he carried out the attack with a rifle, and was in the hospital on Tuesday morning, prior to being booked into jail and charged with 10 counts of murder in the first degree. They offered no details on a suspected motive. (link)
And just like that the media will drop the story, because the shooter is not a white male and subsequently his race and ethnicity does not align with the preferred narrative for gun control suspects.
Well, WOK means everyone is offended by something. The game Monopoly is caving in and changing all its cards. Winning a beauty contest collect $10 was pictured with a man. So not sure people this is offensive to a guy suppose.
While those supporting the Great Reset are all about preventing any movement that requires people to drive with fossil-fueled vehicles, they are deliberately ignoring the social cost to children. The Washington Post, which is so left they would fail a sobriety test unable to walk a straight line, wrote: “A year later, a rethinking is underway, with a growing sense that some changes may last.”
While the grade-school level of under 13 is less stressed about virtual school, they are at risk of losing social skills. However, what makes a civilization function is the very fact that people come together. Divide them to work and live in isolation, you also risk losing the very essence of humanity. I can personally say working in a trading room was ALWAYS better than in isolation. Besides the comradery, there was always a synergy that emerged that was greater than the sum of the individuals.
There has been a surge in student suicides nationwide. I was walking the beach and was talking to a man standing there while his two teenage boys were paddleboarding. He asked if I was a native Floridian. I laughed and said I think I have only met one such person. We are all transplants from other states. He then told me he left New York and moved here because his two boys were so depressed he feared that they were becoming suicidal. To teenagers, sports maybe everything from scholarships or dreams of becoming the next famous sports jock. He said he moved here to save the mental health of his children.
I have to say, he is not the first parent to tell me the same thing. This “save the planet” push to use COVID as an excuse to change society is very serious. These people are fixated on a single objective and are ignoring everything else. Economists do not help when all they want to talk about is socialism, fairness, and equality. Anyone daring to question lockdowns suffers a huge backlash despite the fact that lockdowns have failed to prove effective and have never before been is in 6,000 years of recorded history.
The Guardian has put out the truth, perhaps ahead of schedule. There are those pushing for lockdowns every two years to meet the Paris requirement of zero CO2. Everyone’s future is to change and they never once allowed anyone to ever vote on this agenda nor have they been honest about what the agenda entails.
The virtual school has the danger of creating the exact opposite of the reason that builds civilization. Empires rise with global warming and decline with global cooling when people become more isolated. Welcome to the future these people are creating all to stop climate change which is a normal cycle since the climate has always changed.
There are Shara cave paintings that show what is a desert today was once lush and filled with animals. I suppose there must be time travel where a bunch of people took their SUVs back in time and changed the climate then as well.
