Both Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris claim that, five years ago, Michael Brown was unarmed and ‘murdered,’ by a white police officer, which set off the Ferguson riots. Warren was a law professor at Harvard and Harris was the Attorney General of California, and so they know that their use of the word ‘murder’ is incorrect. According to the Department of Justice under President Obama, an extensive investigation found that Brown had not been murdered and that he probably had attacked Police Officer Wilson first, reaching for his gun, and shooting his own thumb during the scuffle. The Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association slammed Warren’s remarks in a letter that lamented, “Your reckless tweet will only serve to create hatred towards Police Officers and place them in danger of more assaults and perhaps death.” -GEG
FRANCONIA, Grafton County, New Hampshire — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Wednesday defended her false claim last week that 18-year-old Michael Brown had been “murdered” by police in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014.
Speaking to reporters after a town hall event in Franconia, New Hampshire, Warren said that Brown had been unarmed when he was shot “in the middle of the street, by police officers, and left to die.”
The 18-year-old Brown, who was unarmed at the time, was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014. That much is true.
However, left-wing activists falsely claimed at the time that Brown was innocent of any crime; had been shot in the back; and had put his hands over his head and said, “Don’t shoot!” (hence the slogan, “Hands up, don’t shoot!”).
None of those claims turned out to be true — though they were circulated by Democrats and mainstream journalists.
The incident revitalized the “Black Lives Matter” movement, bringing focus to claims of police brutality — but also bringing unrest to many American cities, and prompting police to pull back from fighting crime in black neighborhoods. Race relations, according to Gallup polls, suffered a decline from which they have not recovered.
Trump has ordered the Pentagon to prepare the US military to deploy domestically inside the US. As the violence escalates, people will welcome the military. Minnesota is using ‘contact tracing’ techniques to track rioters – and then everybody.
Every state has plans for contact tracing. In Washington state, where contact tracing is said to be voluntary, non-compliant individuals may be sent to prison and fined up to $2,000 per day for non-compliance.
The NYPD said that several officers sustained injuries, including one who was struck in the head with a garbage can and another who was punched in the face. Protesters shut down the street around police headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.
Riots broke out in Minneapolis, and fire crews responded to 30 intentionally set blazes during the protests, including at least 16 structure fires. Violence spread a few miles away to a Target store in St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood where police said 50 to 60 people rushed the store attempting to loot it.
Trump’s executive order can be reversed by his successor when he leaves office, therefore, Congress should pass a law against censorship. But it won’t because politicians accept generous campaign contributions from big tech.
Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx relied on bogus computer models to frighten politicians into shutting down the country. Last week, after 39-million Americans lost their jobs, Fauci acknowledged that staying closed could cause “irreparable damage!” [Every school child in the country could figure that out, so why did he do it?
Church pastor Jerry Waldrop filed a lawsuit against the city of Holly Springs, alleging police officers had disrupted Easter service, and some believe that the fire was set by people who support the lockdown.
JP Morgan CEO Jaime Dimon acknowledged that the stock market is rising only because the Fed is using taxpayer dollars to save large companies. These bailouts are rewarding bad behavior by banks and their favored businesses, and it is creating massive debt that will destroy the nation.
While Bill Gates was spreading panic over the coronavirus and pushing for a 3-month lockdown, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was buying up tech stock, such as Apple, Amazon, Google-parent Alphabet, and Twitter, all of which did a booming business during the lockdown.
Twitter “fact-checked” President Trump when he criticized universal mail-in voting that can be easily corrupted.

South Africa: Vicki Momberg, a white woman, was convicted of ‘hate speech’ and sentenced to two years in prison for yelling a racial slur at a black policeman after thieves broke into her car. A video of her rant went viral in which she requested a white or Indian officer and said that black people are “plain and simple useless.” [Far worse things now are being yelled at white people in South Africa but, as always happens when there are laws to control thoughts and speech, they are applied unequally, depending on who controls the government. You cannot change people’s thoughts and opinions by making them illegal. Good example is the only way.]
Los Angeles: Jane Fonda has joined with Black Lives Mater in a campaign to stop the construction of two new jails and to give subpoena powers over the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to civilians committees. Fonda says that black males, who account for 6% of the population, commit 52% of the homicides and murders in the US because of white supremacy. She says that “poor and working class Whites must be made to believe that they have privileges and advantages not afforded [to] Blacks.”
