  1. Look for more of this nonsense if police are no longer policing.

    Like the Muslim No Go Zones in Europe, the terrorists at Antifa think they run the show when police aren’t visible.

    “Stop calling, texting and talking to your less-civilized relatives until they wise up and get woke. That’s the conclusion of the far-left New York Times. According to an article posted on The Right Scoop: the people at the Times did their best to convince others to clamp down on those who are not as “woke” as they are, an effort the website reporter derided as “pathetic.”

    Right Scoop explained: “In the wake of the New York Times debacle with the Tom Cotton op-ed, now they’re literally telling people to be emotional extortionists.” In his original column posted on Friday under the title “I Don’t Need ‘Love’ Texts From My White Friends,” writer Chad Sanders grumbled: “So please, stop sending #love. Stop sending positive vibes. Stop sending your thoughts.”

    Sanders then listed “three suggestions on more immediately impactful things to offer instead:” The first item was money, which should be used to “pay legal fees for black people who are unjustly arrested, imprisoned or killed or to black politicians running for office.” Second was texts, which would go to “your relatives and loved ones, telling them you will not be visiting them or answering phone calls until they take significant action in supporting black lives either through protest or financial contributions.”

    The final suggestion was for protection, which should go to “fellow black protesters who are at greater risk of harm during demonstrations.” “Yes, these actions may seem grave,” Sanders noted. “But you insist that you love me, and love requires sacrifice.” “If you’re feeling the need to check on me as your black friend, don’t,” he continued. “I’ll let you know what I need. If you don’t get a message from me, that’s a message.”

  8. Defund the police, order them from some areas, create a vacuum.

    “In Chicago, Hispanic Gangs Protect Their Neighborhoods From Looters: “Get the @#$% Out! We Won’t Let Our Neighborhood Burn”

    As calls to abolish the police reach a fevered pitch, we see a glimpse of what might fill that vacuum”

    “In the absence of elected leadership and in the face of police standing by and watching looting in Chicago, Latin gangs are protecting their local businesses and running would be looters out of their neighborhoods. It’s hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement?

    Because that’s what we can expect in cities that are considering abolishing their police departments—remember, the leftist and anarchist protestors want the police abolished, it’s the political wing, the Democratic Party, that substituted “defund” and is now walking even that back because it’s so vastly unpopular among their own voters.

    Create a vacuum, and it will be filled. In Chicago’s Hispanic neighborhoods, the Latin Kings and other street gangs are reportedly stepping up and doing what their elected officials and police departments have not been able to do: protecting their neighborhood businesses from arsonists and looters.

    These are alleged street gangs, so this video comes with a heavy-duty LANGUAGE WARNING:”

    “Trump’s Plan to Pull U.S. Troops from Germany Irks Merkel Government and the Media

    German newspaper Handelsblatt: “Trump’s planned withdrawal of U.S. troops causes distress.””

    “President Donald Trump’s decision to cut the number of U.S. troops in Germany has irked Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government and German media.

    The White House plans to withdraw 9,500 out of 35,000 U.S. troops stationed in Germany by September, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

    The move came after Germany ignored President Trump’s repeated warnings and kept defaulting on the agreed defense spending, leaving the U.S. to pick up the hefty NATO bill.

    “The United States is spending far more on NATO than any other country. This is not fair, nor is it acceptable,” President Trump said at the 2018 NATO summit. The U.S. shoulders more than 70 percent of the NATO defense budget.

    Peter Beyer, a German politician and a key Merkel ally, called the planned U.S. troop withdrawal “completely unacceptable” to Germany. “It’s not just about 9,500 soldiers, but also their families, an estimated 20,000 Americans,” he added.”

    —–

    “Germany, under Merkel’s 14-year rule, has shown little inclination to fulfill its NATO spending pledge.

    “It is true that Germany will not meet the NATO threshold, agreed in 2014, of spending 2% of gross domestic product on defense by 2024,” German state broadcaster Deutsche Welle admitted following the U.S. announcement.

    The out-going U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, had repeatedly reminded Berlin to meets its defense spending obligation.

    “It is offensive to assume that the U.S. taxpayers continue to pay for more than 50,000 Americans in Germany but the Germans get to spend their surplus on domestic programs,” he told German media in August.

    The planned withdrawal will impact German communities around the U.S. bases, Deutsche Welle reported. The move “could have big economic consequences for the small towns where they have been based for nearly 70 years,” the public broadcaster noted. “Small towns in the south of Germany such as Grafenwöhr in Bavaria or Ramstein in Rhineland-Palatinate have developed since World War II on the basis of the presence of thousands of US troops, their families and US civilians working at bases there.”

    Poland was first to welcome the move. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that he “deeply” hoped that some of the troops moving out of Germany would be transferred to his country, the German media reported on Monday.”

  10. We are blessed with a system of checks and balances, thus a government that moves slowly. That helps. Now if the media (not all!!) would just report what is actually happened. If all people felt safe to give opinions (including media, but marked as such)

  12. Just so there is no misunderstanding: My post about the media is not the average reporter just doing their job (my own daughter was also accused of biased because of township meetings she reported on and she was as unbiased as she could be) but for those who are deliberately sowing seeds of discord by distorting the news.

    I have watched ABC post on the man who was injured by being knocked over with the tape cut in such a way as to make it look worse for those military people. I see quotes on various channels cut to deliberately mislead all the time. I am able to see a lot of the actual hearings or actions so notice these things. Most are too busy working and raising families to see it, so they swallow it whole. It makes me sad to see the division that brings about.

    Seriously, watch it first without the sound. It’s like watching Animal from the Muppets lose it.

    “Seattle protesters storm City Hall, demand mayor resign after driving police out of area, declaring autonomous zone”

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/seattle-city-hall-protesters-autonomous-zone

    “Hundreds of protesters, aided by a sympathetic City Council member, stormed Seattle’s City Hall Tuesday night to demand the mayor’s resignation, just days after seizing a six-block downtown zone that includes a shuttered police precinct.

    Demonstrators remained peaceful, without reports of violence or injuries, but are pushing Mayor Jenny Durkan to step down if she refuses to defund the city’s police department.”

    “The protesters continued to camp out in a self-declared “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ)– a region spanning six blocks and encompassing the precinct– which has effectively been abandoned by law enforcement after the Seattle Police Department closed the East Precinct on Monday.”
