  • Maxine Waters: ‘92 L.A. Rebellion Was A ‘Defining Moment’ For Black Resistance

    Your post #47.

    The "Rodney King" beating video was shown 35,814 times the first week 24/7.

    As I watched the television coverage, it seemed that the press had a pathological desire to bring about violence. Anyone with any experience in the media surely must have known that it was criminally irresponsible. Sure, go ahead and show the whole scenario to be up front. They kept on and on until all hell broke loose. No, they wouldn't even show the mitigating circumstances that brought on police action.

    As for Reginald Denny, the innocent truck driver hauled from his rig and stomped. Very little of this was shown. Rush Limbaugh used to refer to one of his attackers as "Football Williams". I believe this brutal man eventually got life for another crime.

    Up Canada way we have full CNN on our cable network. Tonight I watched a Jake Tapper. Again and again, brief videos of President Trump making pre election statements were shown. Then they were juxtaposed with what seemed to be contradictory statements by President Trump.

    I have seen it all in my time. The power of strictly controlled propaganda press in England. Necessary to "win the war" (WW2). An excuse for it then of course. The CNN is nothing but a massive propaganda machine for the Democrat Party. It is utterly and completely corrupt. It has not got the slightest inclination to at least show some fairness. Unbelievable.

    Your point well taken by me about the softwood lumber dispute. Good for a laugh on our precious Stanley Cup though.

    Your post on the predictable and coming press treatment of Marie Le Pen. we can either ignore or laugh at the subsequent articles lying about what she just said.

    I have had to search around for the likes of the British Press for an idea of Nigel Farage's statement to her. Bye Bye EU. My computer video with audio just got filled with a green screen blank out- nothing. Time to call in an expert, a lad who just lives in the neighbourhood.

    France needs to fight back unless it wants to be conquered.

    Agreed. I have observed the accounts posted on FR of the awful unlivable situation in Marseilles, France. It has become an enclave of a caliphate. Still more stories of the arondissments (divisions within a city). The original inhabitants have lost any semblance of control. This in Paris itself. Police and Firemen attacked on entry to do their duty.

    I can only assume that a large portion of French people live in - as yet pristine districts of small cities/villages. For surely if human nature is, as I believe it is, they would flock to Le Pen's side. They must think they live in a vacuum and only others have to face the problems caused. (IMHO)

    She will end up "unexpectedly" winning,just like Trump

    If she does win and I hope she does, one will have to sit back and watch the media. One will have to weather the caterwauling and the doom and gloom of these worthies. Oh calamity!

    Meantime, day in and day out, even as I type, the MSM Canada is droning on. Every day, every hour, it is Trump this and Trump that. Climate change, the Chinese, the Canadian dairy industry.

    Maybe it will change to be the horror of Le Pen and a world disaster. (chuckle).

    One thing to bear in mind is that like Italy (Lampedusa)and Greece. (Lesbos). Australia has detention centre/s on islands off shore. They have Christmas Island. Confining them close and well observed. Alas, once those who transferred to America, they will be right in the heartland. God know where they will end up - with no knowledge of where they are.

  • American Airlines Flight Attendant Accused Of Smacking Woman With Baby Stroller

    I have had a long experience on this planet. I have noticed that almost all people have an inner sense of what another person is about. My own actions have brought censure. If I felt very annoyed and did not say a single word or betray a facial expression, I noticed this.

    The slightest impatient shrug or jerk of the body is immediately perceived by the other person. I go in and out of the local coffee shop through the push doors every day. People simply know if you are pushy and impatient.

    What I am trying to say is that it is likely the attendant was very disturbed inwardly. He was fuming at yet another apparent breach of rules. He took out his frustration on the stroller. This nearly cause a nasty accident. One thinks of the old adage. "Don't slam the door on your way out."

  • The Shameless Sean Spicer Hitler Hypocrisy

    Didn't Churchill want to use poison gas but was overruled?

    Yes, in Northern India years before, gas had been used against rebellious tribesmen. Churchill knew of their fanaticism and cruelty to prisoners. He had no compunction for any cruel agonizing suffering from gas attacks.

    He then wanted the massive Royal Air Force bomber squadrons equipped with poison gas. His hatred of the Germans- with justification for their civilian targets in the UK, drove him to this. Top military advisers cautioned him against it.

    Churchill is quoted as saying "Amongst the victors, there are NO war criminals". He was right, he conceded if the war was lost he would have faced legal retribution. Or worse.

    Hitler didn't use chemical warfare in battle


    That's what he meant, of course.

    I had read several historians take on this particular decision by Hitler. He had been informed that the British had massive stockpiles of lethal gas. That should his forces use it against allied forces, there would be a massive retaliation.

    Another view is and conceded highly debatable is of Hitler's own experiences in France WW1. Gas was used by both sides. Some soldiers were blinded, but careful treatment by medical means, cured them. It was recorded that some soldiers became so distraught they could not see for much longer than normal. Their sight returned eventually. It was not documented as far as I know, but some say Hitler was temporarily gassed. He was a dispatch runner.

    Sad, sad, it is that Sean Spicer could have stood on the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. Told them to move on, and stood firm. The awesome power of political correctness, is a menace. Two women candidates in Canada standing for leadership of the Conservative Party recently were wiped out. They teared up before left wing tools of the Justin Trudeau crowd. When interviewed on CBC.

    Every one, please excuse this rant.

    He's come along to drain the swamp! He's not a bit PC!

    Almost alone and a dominant figure, the President holds the key to demolishing PC. As has been sadly proved, even closed associates can fall prey to the PC vultures. Witness the case of Sean Spicer. He had only simply declare on the furore over his recent statement re poison gas.

    I have the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. My opinion stands. Live with it.

    The scumbag media could have done absolutely nothing. Why? because as yet even with the apology from Sean Spicer, he is still there. (Albeit bruised and chastened by PC)

    German Jews were quite assimilated until their persecution began in earnest in Nazi Germany.

    I understand in that brutal senseless carnage of WW1, German Jews fought the same war as their German comrades. Hitler must have been stark raving mad to have picked on the Jews. After two successes in Austria and the Sudaten.He then had troops invade Poland. The war was on, he had about six years to live.

    On the subject at hand. Well said Dershowitz. Why Sean Spicer did not invoke the 1st Amendment to the Constitution is a pity. What could the scumbag press have done to him anyway?.....nothing!

    He demonstrated bad judgment. He gave the sharks red meat. Case closed. Time for lunch.

    Once again conservatives have fallen prey to the politically correct vultures. The scumbags of the press. I ask rhetorically this. If Sean Spicer said

    "This is my opinion and I have the 1st amendment, do your worst!"

    What could the press have actually done?. This considering the laws of free speech.

    Please wake up conservatives.

    ...that a gas attack could render him immobile but alive At least that's what witnesses reported he said.

    I read of a phenomenon which afflicted soldiers in WW1 gas attacks. I read that Hitler suffered this. Being blinded by the gas, it was a temporary blindness until proper rest and treatment. Some soldiers were so distraught, they became blind for a longer period. Said to be psychological. The serial killer Reginald Christy hanged 1948 in England had this problem.

    Once again I wince at the apologies by Sean Spicer. It bought the politically correct scumbags circling like sharks in the water. If only,if only, he could have just told them. "My opinion, do your worst." I ask rhetorically.

    Just what in the name of reason, could the scumbag press have done about him?

    Wake up Conservatives.

    My parents could easily fall for it.

    I assume your parents were usually very perceptive old fashioned style. I am 85 years old and was in a vulnerable state, after successful surgery. As a gift to myself I got a brand new tower. I thought I was pretty adept myself. Somehow I got locked in to Mumbai.

    I still cannot understand how I allowed myself to be duped when I knew about India/Mumbai.They played mind games for about six hours and I almost broke down. They then put me on a regular network which still works ok. Sociopathic scum, could have bilked me for the 225 dollars Canadian and left me in ten minutes. (Excuse the rant, I feel better for telling this).

    A name sticks in my mind and I am not sure whether this is the company that bilked me. Anyway a company that even exists in Massachusetts is Guru Aid. Very dicey but has recommendations by the dozen, might be planted by pros. This as well as many dire warnings. Mumbai is mentioned.

    The same scammers will just "represent" your power,water,phone company,or your bank,or your internet provider, or,or, etc.

    As I found out to my cost. I purchased a plastic card regular size from a local electronic store. It was a NORTON SECURITY card. $39, It was to enter an anti-virus guard. It mentioned also "NORTON GLOBAL SUPPORT". This would walk one through the installation if one was not computer savvy. I got a phone call on applying the support service.

    A voice from Mubai conned me all of $179 US funds. Norton did advertise this as a package. It was never installed and they took me for $225 Canadian funds with the exchange. Norton did not want to know. Never answered my e-mails. That company from Mumbai may have offices in Massachusetts.

    I would like to know eventually what penalties these birds or sociopaths would face.?
