  • US cities to pay record $80m to people injured in 2020 racial justice protests

    theguardian ^ | 05/25/2023
    Cities across the US have agreed to pay out a total of more than $80m in settlements to protesters injured by police during 2020 racial justice protests – a figure experts believe is unprecedented and will rise further as many lawsuits are still playing out. The brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers on 25 May 2020 sparked the largest nationwide demonstrations since the civil rights era, as upwards of 26 million people gathered to protest racism and police brutality. But, three years later, at least 19 US cities will pay more than $80m total to protesters who...

    American Greatness ^ | 20 May, 2023 | Mary Grabar
    We can see the agitation over the death of Jordan Neely as a call to another summer of rioting. Back in the summer of 1964, the first of many race riots roiled the nation. They began in Harlem, then spread to Rochester, New York, and then three cities in New Jersey. In the summer of 1965, the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles went up in flames. For the next three years, cities were rocked with violent upheaval, culminating with Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination in 1968. As American cities burned, the great black conservative journalist George Schuyler explained that the...
  • Mail fail! Seattle's out-of-control crime and drug problem in Democrat-controlled city have forced USPS to pause deliveries to an entire zip code this month

    Daily Mail ^ | 5/20/23 | Kamal Sultan
    Out-of-control crime in the Democrat-run city of Seattle forced the United States Postal Service (USPS) to pause deliveries to an entire zip code for a week. Around 900 residents in the 98118 zip code did not receive their mail as delivery services were halted due to mail theft and 'equipment security concerns'. They were told to pick up their mail from the local post office and stood in long queues of up to an hour while delivery services were paused for a week before UPS lifted the ban on Tuesday. Thieves had stolen a master key which is used by...

    Unconstrained Analytics ^ | Sep 8, 2020 | Steve Coughlin
    This book by Unconstrained Analytics is a guide for all citizens that are concerned with the chaos and violence occurring on the streets of America, regardless of political outlook. Though much of the violence clearly has political intent and purpose, that is outside the scope of this study. The goal – to explain the violence, who is perpetrating it, and how to avoid becoming a victim, sounds simple enough. However, this is a very dynamic situation, the amount of information available is immense, and much of it is opinion disguised as the truth. To help with this task, the writers...

    Hot Air ^ | 4/7/23 | David Strom
    Remember the George Floyd riots of 2020? I do. Vast swathes of my city were burned down including a police precinct–a first. The City of Minneapolis actually evacuated and abandoned a police precinct and let rioters burn it down. It was pretty traumatic for the city. It took days to get the city back under control. The National Guard had to be called out, and even then it took days to retake the city. I lent my neighbor a gun. As a Black man, he was surprised I would and very grateful. We were in it together, protecting each other...

    Its decline wasn’t inevitable. It stands as a warning to all Western nations about the speed with which bad (read: leftist) management will destroy a country. I received an email from a South African friend today, infuriated at his country’s destruction at the hands of his own government’s ideology and incompetence. This was not hyperbole. In fact, the power grid is on the verge of complete collapse, which will leave people without food or water, and, when combined with South Africa’s decay in all other areas, may lead to civil unrest on a scale that could trigger a full civil...

    Massive protests have begun in across the country Friday night following the release of the Tyre Nichols bodycam footage, as cities around the country brace for violent riots. In New York City, a man was photographed standing atop a smashed in police vehicle windshield. NYPD officers were soon after seen trying to drag him down from atop the vehicle and eventually arrested him. At least three have been taken into custody in the Big Apple Friday evening as part of the protests, according to NBC New York. Another stood over a cop car with a tattered American flag. Antifa has...

    It’s no secret that the majority of Antifa members are white kids from privileged backgrounds; you only have to look at the recent reports from the far-left riots in Atlanta, which confirmed the arrest of the ‘non-binary’ son of Democrat Rep. Katherine Clark, and the son of a millionaire surgeon to see an emerging demographic. The recurring theme is undeniable.

    Government officials are calling for calm ahead of the planned nationwide protests over the Tyre Nichols bodycam footage, which will be released tonight, as the Georgia governor activated 1,000 National Guard troops and Capitol Hill amped up security. Many cities, including Memphis and New York City, are gearing up to protest after the gruesome footage, which has been described as worse than Rodney King, on the Memphis Police Department's YouTube page at 7pm. Police are releasing the footage later a night to allow people to get home beforehand. Nichols, 29, was brutally beaten like a 'human piñata' by five Memphis,...

    Miami Herald ^ | SEPTEMBER 16, 2022 | JACQUELINE CHARLES
    Since Monday, Haiti has been sinking into chaos in widespread anti-government protests that have turned violent in parts of Port-au-Prince, as well as rural cities like Petit Goave and Gonaives. The protests had been intensifying for weeks, stoked by the rising cost of living, a scarcity of U.S. dollars, political manipulation and the lack of fuel at the pumps after two suppliers, providing 40% of the market, stopped ordering. “This incident is simply unacceptable. The looted food was intended to feed nearly 100,000 schoolchildren until the end of the year and provide emergency aid to the most vulnerable families in...

    I’ve been warning about this since January 2020. Sounded crazy then. But it wasn’t. I devour history books and it’s all written over and over and over. Normalcy bias is a great killer of nations. There will be famine There will be actual pandemic There will be war There will be migrations big and small. Both personal and population-sized. Entire tribes will move, as has been happening already. Many of these Europeans and Americans will soon realize they did not just welcome in millions of individuals. They welcomed in tribes and groups that come with their own structures. These are...

    Experts have warned the risks of civil unrest are growing in even the wealthiest countries of Europe, particularly due to the skyrocketing energy bills and cost of living crisis. Risk consultancy firm Verisk Maplecroft warned that Germany and Norway are two developed economies that have already been facing some disruptions to daily life as a result of labour actions. Earlier today, pilots at Lufthansa went on strike, forcing the German airline to cancel hundreds of flights in Frankfurt and Munich.
  • Two Years After Kenosha Riots, Why No August 23 Committee To Investigate The Big Lie That Stoked The Flames?

    The Federalist ^ | August 23, 2022 | Kylee Griswold
    Aug. 23, 2020 is a night Kenosha residents can’t help but remember — but would rather forget. At the hands of vindictive Black Lives Matter groupies and other self-described racial justice activists, the Wisconsin town went up in flames two years ago today. Rogues started fires at government buildings. They set ablaze garbage trucks and torched upwards of 100 vehicles in the car lot owned by an Indian immigrant, smashing the windows of those who escaped the inferno. They vandalized the post office and a high school, and their flames completely consumed a century-old camera shop. That’s only a fraction...

Keep protesting. Because, keep making your point. It’s critically important. We can do a lot of things to accommodate the rights of women in the mean time.

    American Thinker ^ | 20 Jun, 2022 | Patricia McCarthy
    Our nation is being brutalized by violence in city after city: N.Y., Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and more. Criminals are being allowed to run free among law-abiding citizens in Democrat-run cities throughout the country. Soros-backed D.A.s were promoted precisely to do what they are doing: foment crime and chaos. Let the homicidal, drug-addled among our increasingly violent population run free to do what they do. During the summer of 2020, BLM and Antifa wrought violence and did billions of dollars in damage across America. The Democrat left supported those riots and raised money to bail out the...

    President Joe Biden might think he is the president of "unity," but this is another high-pressure election year, and legal expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax predicts a "summer of violence," with more unconstitutional abuses of power and politicized justice in America. "I'm afraid we will have a summer of violence if the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade, and we will see the Justice Department and this administration selectively enforcing the law," Dershowitz told "Saturday Agenda." "You won't find congressional committees controlled [by] Democrats evaluating whether there was incitement, whether by Black Lives Matter — or women's groups." Dershowitz denounced...

    This is going out mainly to the truckers out there, but everyone should start thinking about this: Is there a certain point – a price per gallon if you will, where the wheels start falling off the supply chains, the economy, etc. to the point of no return? A few weeks ago, I was talking with friends both on and offline; trying to calculate a number in which owner-operators and small fleets simply could no longer afford to operate under the current D.O.T. rules. If/When that happens, by logic, we assume one of more the following would take place: 1....
