  • Black Lives Matter Needs To Care About All Black Lives, Not Just The Few Ended By Police

    The Federalist ^ | June 22, 2020 | Lipton Matthews
    If BLM leaders care about black lives, they ought to focus on what can improve the quality of life for black Americans — starting with stronger families. >Positing that “Black Lives Matter” is such an obvious fact that repeating it sounds banal. Only an outright racist would question this premise. Therefore, the frequent “All Lives Matter” retort of critics often inflames the sensibilities of activists, with many in the BLM movement find this assertion objectionable on the basis that it misinterprets their message. The phrase “Black Lives Matter” is not a declaration that other lives are unimportant, activists say, but...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – San Francisco police will stop responding to neighbor disputes, reports on homeless people, school discipline interventions and other non-criminal activities as part of a police reform plan the mayor announced Thursday. Mayor London Breed said in a news release that on calls that don’t involve a threat to public safety, police would be replaced by trained, unarmed professionals to limit unnecessary confrontation between the police department and the community. “We know that a lack of equity in our society overall leads to a lot of the problems that police are being asked to solve,” she said...

  • Ignoring Warnings, Mich. AG Sued to RAISE Lake Level Ahead of Dam Break—to Protect Mussels

    In her ongoing audition to be Joe Biden’s veep pick, Michigan Governess Gretchen Whitmer all but convicted a private dam owner for the disastrous floods that struck the middle of the state last Wednesday. However, it wasn’t the dam company that was trying to save a few clams—it was Whitmer’s radical attorney general, Dana Nessel. Nessel was suing the dam company to raise the lake level three feet in order to save mussels—both endangered and common—and in their response, the dam company cited safety as a reason for not doing so. But to Dana Nessel, who is also suing to...
  • Obama Knew Details Of Wiretapped Flynn Phone Calls, Surprising Top DOJ Official In Meeting With Biden, Declassified Docs Show

    President Obama was aware of the details of then-incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn's intercepted December 2016 phone calls with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, apparently surprising then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, according to documents released Thursday as exhibits to the government's motion to dismiss the Flynn case. Obama's unexpectedly intimate knowledge of the details of Flynn's calls, which the FBI acknowledged at the time were not criminal or even improper, raised eyebrows because of his own history with Flynn -- and because top FBI officials secretly discussed whether their goal was to "get [Flynn] fired" when they interviewed him in...

    This has gone on long enough. This was sold as 14 days, then the new pitch became Easter and "maybe" May 1, 2020. As I drive around the San Francisco Bay Area I see restaurant after restaurant "CLOSED!!!" I do not see how they come back. That is, I don't see how most of them come back. It takes so much capital to open a restaurant and then you are guessing how many people will come in that day, what your rush hours are and what will they order. That kills 30-40% of the restaurants currently closed. There are new...

    The "jackass, loser, fat-tire biker" that CNN's Chris Cuomo berated on radio has filed a formal police complaint against the Prime Time anchor. The 65-year-old Long Island man, David Whelan, was the subject of a Cuomo tirade during a broadcast of "Let's Get After It with Chris Cuomo" over an alleged verbal confrontation between the two on Easter Sunday. According to the East Hampton police complaint, obtained by The Independent, Cuomo allegedly threatened Mr Whelan, saying he hadn't "seen the last of him" and that "he would beat the crap out" of him.

    A Long Island, N.Y., bicyclist has filed a police report after getting into a testy exchange with CNN anchor Chris Cuomo in front of a Hamptons home on Easter Sunday, according to a New York Post report. The reported filing with the East Hampton Police Department came after Cuomo shared a story on his SiriusXM radio show on Monday about a "jackass, loser biker" who got in his "space" because he was in the front yard with two women and three children at the home, which is still under construction. The bicyclist told the Post that Cuomo had purchased the...

  • Federal courts shuttered by coronavirus can hold hearings by video and teleconference in criminal cases

    03/31/2020 5:49:49 PM PDT · by Libloather · 2 replies
    With courtrooms shuttered for most in-person hearings, the federal judiciary is for the first time broadly allowing certain criminal proceedings to take place by video and teleconference, a sea change for technology-resistant trial courts throughout the country. The shift in policy announced Tuesday is intended to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus by allowing judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys and defendants to work and appear remotely. It is unclear whether it will lead to lasting changes in how the federal judiciary operates, and some are concerned that the video and teleconferences could cut off media and public access to what...

    “One hundred years after the lethal 1918 flu we are still vulnerable,” warned Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), at a Smithsonian seminar on the 1918 pandemic. “Without a universal vaccine, a single virus would result in a world catastrophe.” Could a 1918 scenario could repeat itself? “It’s clear that we have a much greater capacity to respond, and we would expect to respond more effectively to a 1918-like virus, but we could have [a strain] more transmissible and more severe,” Daniel Sosin, the CDC’s deputy director for preparedness said at a recent...

    Federal detention centers are definitely a lot less pleasant than cable news' greenrooms. Former liberal media darling and frequent CNN guest Michael Avenatti was recently held in a "rat-infested" jail cell for a 10-day stretch and “and was able to shower only twice in about two weeks,” according to The Washington Post. Citing a letter Avenatti’s attorney sent to a judge, the Post reported that the former lawyer to porn star Stormy Daniels had a rough time during a lockdown at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan, where he's being held since last month after being found guilty of...

    Snoop Dogg said Saturday he wasn't threatening CBS News anchor Gayle King over a recent interview in which she broached the Kobe Bryant rape case following his death last week. The clarification comes after CBS News president Susan Zirinsky said the network "fully supports" King while vigorously condemning “reprehensible” threats made against King. "When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family," Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., said in a video on Instagram on Saturday. "Now with that being said,...

    A week after being roasted for tweeting a fake conversation between Republican senators, CNN political commentator and former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart claimed Wednesday night during the Senate trial’s dinner break that an argument used by Trump legal team member Alan Dershowitz was “un-American” and akin to those used by “authoritarian people” to justify “genocide.” OutFront host Erin Burnett asked Lockhart what he made of Dershowitz’s claim that a presidential action done “in the national interest...cannot be a quid pro quo that results in impeachment.” Without hesitation, Lockhart stated that while he’s “worked on about a dozen...

The store clerk can be seen scanning the item and putting it in a plastic bag.
