Anti-Trump protest, Wiki

Protests were common following Trump’s victory in 2016, and UC San Diego student, Maria Ana Carrola Flores, was struck by a car while protesters blocked traffic on the I-5 freeway at 1:30 in the morning. Flores filed a lawsuit against the driver, the city and county of San Diego, the University of California, San Diego, and the UC Board of Regents, arguing that campus officials had encouraged the protest, did not control it, and failed to warn students of the danger of walking onto the freeway. Her lawsuit was tossed and all of the defendants have been cleared. [Note the hidden gem in this story: Flores said the University encouraged the demonstration. Where is the lawsuit against UC administrators for illegal use of taxpayers’ money to support a political cause?] – GEG

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit from a college student for injuries she sustained while protesting the election of Donald Trump on a freeway, after he declared victory in November 2016.

Protests on college campuses were a common sight after the election. At the University of California, San Diego, one such protest by hundreds of students began on campus, but ultimately moved to the nearby I-5 freeway at approximately 1:30 am. Students were presumably trying to block the freeway, a tactic which was common at the height of the Black Lives Matter protests.

As students fanned out across the lanes, they flashed the lights on their phones to signal oncoming traffic of their presence. A Caltrans (California Department of Transportation) vehicle tried to slow approaching drivers by driving in an “S” formation, but within moments, a driver went around the Caltrans vehicle and struck a student while moving at considerable speed.

The student, Maria Ana Carrola Flores, suffered a crushed pelvis and a fractured leg, among other injuries. The driver stopped and was released when it was determined he was not driving under the influence.

In 2017, Flores filed a lawsuit against the driver, the city and county of San Diego, the University of California, San Diego, and the UC Board of Regents.

Jon Rappoport Investigates the Cult of COVID

July 10, 2020 Jon Rappoport 1

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

Dr. Scott Jensen Accused by the State of Spreading Misinformation

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 3

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]
