Guilty Verdicts Delivered Against All Three Men in the Murder of Ahmaud Arbery


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 24, 2021 | Sundance | 276 Comments

A Georgia jury has found all three suspects in the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery guilty of murder. Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William Bryan were all found guilty of murder.  Arbery was a black male victim and all three suspects -who claimed to be attempting to make a citizens arrest were white males.

Accusations of racism have propagated the framework of the case and the jury heard evidence that racism was a factor.  As with the Rittenhouse verdict, this verdict in Georgia was accurate to the details of the case.

GEORGIA – […] The jury found Travis McMichael, who fatally shot Arbery on Feb. 23, 2020, in a Brunswick, Ga., neighborhood, guilty of all nine counts brought against him, including malice murder.

His father Gregory McMichael, who was with him at the time of the shooting, was found guilty of four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony. 

William “Roddie” Bryan, who recorded the incident, was found guilty of three counts of felony murder, one count of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment and one count of criminal attempt to commit a felony. (read more)

Unfortunately, this case is again being exploited by a culturally Marxist media and those who promote race as a divisive business model.   The verdict against the three men was justified and accurate to the horrific events that culminated in the death of Arbery.  However, the exploitation of Arbery’s death to advance the divisive issue of race is destructive and damaging.

In the recent Waukesha, Wisconsin, mass killing and slaughter of people at the Christmas parade, the media went out of their way to deny the motive of race, because the accused driver of the vehicle, Darrell Edward Brooks Jr, was a black male targeting white people.  The racial motive was/is intentionally downplayed.

Contrast that purposeful media framework against the media narrative against Kyle Rittenhouse, a situation that had nothing whatsoever to do with race, and then overlay the events around the Arbery case, and it is clear the media has an agenda to promote racism in one direction only.

The New York Post provides one of multiple examples of the double standard that creates toxic division and conflict:

(story link)

Racism was likely a large part of the motive in the Georgia killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and The New York Post leads with that aspect.  However, racism was also likely the motive for Darrell Brooks in Waukesha Wisconsin, and yet the media avoids that entirely.

Race is only used as a promotional hook for the media story when the attacker is white and the victim is black.   When the races are reversed, the attacker is black and the victim white, suddenly political correctness dictates the racial dynamic is not safe for public discussion.  This type of cultural Marxism only makes racial animosity worse.

It is a very sad state of affairs when social division is beneficial for political and electoral manipulation.  Much of this intentional manipulation is what you find when you look into the conduct of the DOJ Community Relations Service (CRS), an agency within the DOJ civil rights division.

When the perpetrator is black and the victim(s) are white – the CRS activates quickly to instruct media and the judiciary system how to handle the racial component; the CRS goal is to downplay race as a motive.   However, when the perpetrator is white and the victim(s) black – the CRS activates to support the professional grievance activists who thrive on racism as a business model.  By approaching things this way, the DOJ-CRS actually flames racial animosity, the exact opposite of their presumed mission.

All of this is very unsettling… and THAT division is the tool of Marxists, in politics and media.

Friends – Who Needs Them?


Armstrong Economics Blog/New Norm Re-Posted Sep 28, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION:  Marty, computers in schools started to appear in the ’90’s. Do you see any relationship between societal shifts and classroom learning? Bill Gates influence?

LP

ANSWER: I don’t think so. I outfitted the grade school I went to with computers in the early 90s. I think it improved their skills to be able to function in the 21st century. However, the introduction of smartphones has changed the game. Now a 7-year-old is teaching their mother, who was in those classes in the 90s, how to forward and take pictures. There are a lot of studies now showing that young adults have fewer friends. Then there are studies saying that the average American has not made a new friend in 5 years.

I live on the beach. I see people walking the beach alone while on the phone. It is rather strange.

The World Of PC/WOKE

Ok, now they are saying we should no longer refer to incidents with sharks as an “attack.” That unfairly demonizes them as killers. Instead, we should refer to such incidents as an “encounter.” So if someone kills another at gunpoint in a robbery, he is not a killer, it was just an encounter. Interesting logic since a shark is not a ruthless killer; it is just hungry. So a thief is not a robber; he is a materially deprived person entitled to what you have because “equality” makes it just.

Woke USA Women Soccer Team Lose 3-0 at Olympics


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 21, 2021 | Sundance | 365 Comments

Perhaps if they spent a little more energy on soccer skills, and a little less energy attempting to be the woke champions of US sport, the outcome may have been different.  Alas, there’s a great number of Americans who shrug because USA women’s national soccer has evolved into a political assembly who happen to play soccer. The team’s egotistical, arrogant, pompous and virtue-signaling attitude is a considerable turn-off.

This is the same team that wears ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their uniforms, and kneels instead of stands for the U.S. national anthem to showcase to the world just how woke they are.  Team Captain Ms. Rapinoe refuses to sing the U.S. national anthem; kneels during ceremonies to make her hatred for America visible; and grabs every microphone to tell the media about her politics in an effort to increase her woke resistance credentials.

Team USA soccer loses in the first round of the Olympics to Sweden.  Meh, it’s a headline because, well, karma or something.

TOKYO (AP) — Sweden didn’t have to bunker down on defense against the Americans this time.  Stina Blackstenius scored a pair of goals and the Swedes stunned the United States at the Olympics with a 3-0 victory Wednesday in the women’s soccer tournament.

The Americans, ranked No. 1 in the world and the favorites to win gold in Tokyo, were riding a 44-match unbeaten streak heading into the match. But Sweden, ranked No. 5, has been the U.S. team’s nemesis of sorts in recent years. The Swedes bounced the Americans from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games in the quarterfinals, the earliest U.S. Olympic exit ever, by making a defensive stand. (read more)

“Free Cuba”

The Cuban People Deserve Freedom

Circle back White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that Cuban protesters yelling “freedom!” during anti-communist protests were in reality demanding “freedom from rising COVID cases.”

Psaki’s attempt at gas-lighting was a complete fail.

On Sunday Cuba experienced the largest protests against the brutal communism they are forced to live under in recent memory. If they were protesting against “rising COVID cases” why were they not wearing masks and shouting “Death to COVID.”

Cheater in Chief waited 24 hours to release a flaccid statement about the Cuban protests, claiming the US will  “stand with the Cuban people” and against their repressive communist “Cuban regime.”   Biden did not repudiate the Communist Party or its Marxist ideology, of course. We all know his Chinese handlers would not look kindly on that statement.

How many times have we heard those on the left make excuses for oppressive communist and socialist regimes, saying communism works, they just didn’t “do it right.” Too many to count.

The New York Slimes actually came out and said the word “freedom” is “anti-government.”  In fact, the word freedom is like garlic to a marxist vampire, they can’t stand the thought of people making their own choices and living free.

The Cuban pro-democracy group Cuba Decide confirmed the disappearance or arrest of 57 people since protests erupted throughout the island on Sunday night, many of them prominent critics of the communist regime. This is how a brutal communist dictatorship operates.

We support the Cuban people in their fight against the tyranny of communism. We think Americans need to take a good look at what’s happening in our own country as the marxist Biden regime has adopted many of the communist tactics used to enslave their citizens. Freedom can disappear quickly if we do not stand up and push back.

Already the FBI wants you to snitch on your neighbor or family for “suspicious behavior” and the Biden stormtroopers are planning to knock on your door demanding your vaccination “papers.” (Put up a NO TRESPASSING SIGN and refuse to answer the door.)

In Havana they are waving American flags, in Portland, they are burning American flags.

Let that sink in.

Inflation On Track into 2024


Armstrong Economics Blog/Inflation Re-Posted Jul 14, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty, it is amazing how you are the only one capable of forecasting this trend years in advance. I have been attending your WEC events since 2011. You have forecast long ago that the deflation would end in 2020 and that this wave would be inflationary with shortages in commodities. If the world simply raised the white flag and ran the economy according to the ECM, all our lives would be far better. I fully understand your desire to have Socrates continue after you. It’s time to go public.

GH

REPLY: The problem has always been that forecasting is just opinion. That is why they try to ignore our forecasts or plagiarize them and pretend they thought this in the shower. The entire global economy was set for shortages to start with. Then these people in government, confronted with the Monetary Crisis Cycle, have taken the dark path to Marxism dangled in front of them by Schwab. They have inspired racial conflict to claim that the people want Marxism to achieve EQUALITY. Schwab puts out this scenario that unrest will get worse because they want his communist solution. It is a brilliant strategy. You create the crisis and then offer the solution.

You then start this defund the police so you can replace local police with federal who will no longer be local as in the Nika Revolt. Then you have Gates buying as much farmland as he can and with political pull, he gets Biden to claim there is a surplus of food (a lie) and he then pays Gates for not growing food while over 20 countries are on the verge of starvation.

Inflation continued to surge in June, with consumer prices accelerating at the fastest pace in almost 13 years. The Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index, which measures a basket of goods and services as well as energy and food costs, jumped 5.4% in June up from last year. That’s higher than May’s 5% year-over-year price rise.

Based upon clients reporting from Italy, much of their crops have had to be destroyed because there is now also a shortage of cans. Indeed, I happen to like V8 juice. None is available in cans anymore – only plastic bottles. End fossil fuels and you kill plastics. California will be forced to reverse its climate change decrees for there is a severe shortage of power and without air conditioning, a lot of elderly will die. They will probably blame some COVID variable.

Black National Anthem – Deliberate Reestablishing Segregation?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Jul 6, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Interesting Point of View. Politically, all socialist governments have the same ob jective – to segregated and prevent the people from uniting. Even Amazon was trying to keep very diverse workforces and the document that surfaced showed that by keep the workforce diverse, it was less likely to unite and join together to form a union. This appears to be a deliberate strategy to divide and conquer the American people by PREVENTING unity. They are deliberately trying to pit one race against another. This is a historical well-documented strategy.

Open Border Activists Demand White House Confront The “Insurrection of Rebellious States”, AKA Red State Alliance Sending Help to Secure Border


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on July 5, 2021 | Sundance | 252 Comments

This was so predictable CTH wrote about it HERE.  Several states responded to the call from Texas Governor Greg Abbott asking for allied states to send law enforcement and national guard to secure the southern border after the Biden administration actively, intentionally and purposefully works to keep it open.

With the potential for cooperation from states, what I call “extreme federalism“, to secure the border regardless of the Federal inaction, an assembly of various activist groups are petitioning the White House to confront the states with direct military action.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), a far-left communist advance group, is asking Joe Biden to fight the state effort with all measures possible, including armed confrontation.

WASHINGTON DC – […] “We told the president in no uncertain terms, this is an insurrection by recalcitrant and rebellious states that must be stopped,” says Domingo Garcia, national president of LULAC. He said Mr. Abbott, who hosted former President Donald Trump for a border visit last week, was “fomenting dangerous racial hatred targeting Latinos.”

LULAC’s Texas director, Rodolfo Rosales Jr., compared the states’ actions to the Civil War. “We are being invaded by governors of the defeated Confederacy to arm the border against brown women and children escaping political persecution, hunger, and death,” he said.

The states LULAC cited — Arizona, Nebraska, Idaho, Florida and South Dakota — don’t exactly match with the contours of the Confederacy, and questions over states’ ability to influence federal immigration policy extend well beyond the current Biden administration border crisis. (read more)
