Manufactured Outrage – The George Floyd Story
Last Monday, May 25, 2020, was Memorial Day in the United States. It was also George Floyd’s last day on earth. At the early age of 46, Mr. Floyd passed away during a medical procedure in a Minneapolis hospital, according to police reports.
In the years prior to his death, Floyd spent five years in prison for armed robbery. He was no angel (not that any of us are) and being handled by law enforcement and corrections officers was not new to him.
In the hours immediately preceding his death, he broke the law by attempting to make a purchase with a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill. In the process of being arrested, Mr. Floyd was taken to the ground by the officers at the scene. After he was handcuffed, he was held in place by Officer Derek Chauvin who used a neck restraint.
Watching Ofc. Chauvin use the restraint was not a pretty sight. But then, most use-of-force events are not pretty to watch, especially if you are an untrained civilian. It was reported that Floyd told the attending officers, “I cannot breathe,” more than once. Sounds bad.
Once on the street, rookie cops quickly learn that it is quite common for people who have been arrested and are on their way to jail to suddenly claim some kind of horrible medical problem.
“I can’t breathe.”
“I’m having horrible chest pains.”
“I’m feeling dizzy and have no sensation on my left/right side.”
“When you punched me, I think you broke my arm, wrist, hand, shoulder, ribs, yadda, yadda, yadda. I need to go to the hospital.”
Experienced lawbreakers are doing everything they can to delay their entrance into the jail because they know that they have a much better chance of escaping from a medical facility than they will have escaping from a jail cell.
It’s an old song and most cops quickly grow tired of hearing it. It is usually shrugged-off unless there has been some evidence of the problem previously as the incident unfolded.
Ultimately, after an unknown amount of time dealing with the criminal, (Floyd) at or near the store, medics arrived to check him over and he is then he was whisked off to be checked at the hospital and ultimately, held at the local Iron Hotel.
THE COMMUNITY SPEAKS OUT
As is common these days, members of the public were recording videos of the incident. A few seconds of it were parsed and presented to public via social media.
It was intended to show the ‘awful’ things the four ‘bully cops’ did to this poor, defenseless, unarmed man who did not deserve such harsh treatment. As a result, Minneapolis citizens began to protest against what they saw as excessive force being used by their local cops.
They didn’t like it and they took to the streets to let their opinions be known.
They had every right to do that.
Over the years, experience has taught cops everywhere a lesson. The average Joe in the community believes this falsehood: Contemporaneous videos which are recorded at the scene and shown later tell the entire story. And, of course, they are always 100% accurate.
Many times, the videos meet those expectations. In this case though, the video led the viewer to a conclusion which was 180 degrees off-the-mark.
People demonstrated in the streets of Minneapolis. They appeared in huge numbers and their voices were loud. Their demands and their desires sincere. All of that is very much part of the fabric of America; it has been since our founding.

Joe F. commented on travesty 2020-04-14 07:34:20 -0400Former lawyer and current journalist Laura Ingraham recently interviewed Attorney General William Barr for two hours, aired on her TV news show ‘The Ingraham Angle". It was a wide ranging discussion covering many subjects, but of particular interest was Mr. Barr’s comments re: the ongoing investigation of what’s called ‘Spygate’, a term that refers to events where high ranking officials in various government agencies allegedly abused their power to illegally spy on the 2016 campaign of Donald Trump.
During this extraordinary interview Mr. Barr said; “My own view is that the evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes and sloppiness. There’s something far more troubling here.”
He went on to say; “I think what happened to him [Trump] was one of the greatest travesties in American history, and without any basis they started this investigation of his campaign, and even more concerning actually, is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president to sabotage the presidency.”
In a pre-virus news world, these statements would have made headlines everywhere. Nonetheless, in language that is as forthcoming as could be considering the case against these high ranking suspects is still being built, the Attorney General is telling us that there was a soft coup attempt to “sabotage the presidency.”
What remains is for prosecutors to present irrefutable evidence in open court that can withstand a defense team’s obfuscatory strategy. We’ve never seen anything like this because there’s never been anything like this.
Joe F. commented on stoppress 2020-03-21 09:29:32 -0400One of the suggestions was to record the WH briefings and then have ‘media experts’ tell U.S. what was said.
This kind of institutional arrogance took many, many years to develop. God only knows how it will ever be fixed .. maybe cut their absurdly high salaries and let ‘em earn that $15 hourly wage they’re so enthused about.
Joe F. commented on deplorables 2019-12-26 09:06:20 -0500We live in a divided country. On one side there are those who live media-centric lives. These folks either have jobs related to media-land or are full time consumers of what media-land produces. This large group of people mostly populate metropolis America.
On the other side are those who pay little attention to media-land. These folks have jobs where the focus is on what must be done, not talked about. Their well being, financial and otherwise, is directly tied to the daily work of their hands. This large group of people populate every town across America.
The great divide in our country is because watching and talking about things are not at all the same as actually doing them. The great divide is because metropolis America has lost contact with working class America, calling them deplorable for their faith in traditional values. This great divide is what the angry noise is all about.
Welcome to election year 2020. Are you registered to vote?
Joe F. commented on letter 2019-12-17 18:41:15 -0500“Perhaps most insulting of all is your false display of solemnity. You apparently have so little respect for the American People that you expect them to believe that you are approaching this impeachment somberly, reservedly, and reluctantly. No intelligent person believes what you are saying. Since the moment I won the election, the Democrat Party has been possessed by Impeachment Fever. There is no reticence. This is not a somber affair. You are making a mockery of impeachment and you are scarcely concealing your hatred of me, of the Republican Party, and tens of millions of patriotic Americans. The voters are wise, and they are seeing straight through this empty, hollow, and dangerous game you are playing.”

Joe F. commented on UKvotes 2019-12-13 07:21:55 -0500The Trump Revolution is now a global phenomena. The tide has turned. The leftists are being pushed into the political wilderness and they’ll be there for a long time.
Our friend sundance @ CTH writes;
At the center of this realignment is “America First“. A reestablished economic leverage that can reward allies and punish adversaries. Globalism becomes a thing of the past and is replaced by economic nationalism; an international tide to lift all boats – peacefully.
“Economic security is national security”
Joe F. commented on IGreport 2019-12-09 19:08:19 -0500Why were they so unconcerned about the wide trail of evidence they were leaving behind? Because President Hillary Clinton would never allow anything they did to be scrutinized.
Trump winning was barely conceivable in their collective minds. But just in case, Strzok had an insurance policy, which was executed with even greater stupidity than the attempt to rig 2016.
Joe F. commented on neverseen 2019-10-02 17:34:38 -0400So true Sandra. Colluding to take out a POTUS used to be a serious crime. (The Lincoln conspirators were hung).
I’d settle for some jail time, which may well be how it ends for many of our current coup conspirators. AG Barr will be heard from soon … I think.

100% correct sir. The good news is that the Dem Playbook is out of date in the age of Trump. He takes it away and slaps them with it.
Joe F. commented on small 2019-08-15 17:14:01 -0400As much as someone can while living a ‘common’ life, I’ve paid attention to our national politicians since boyhood, after watching the Kennedy-Nixon debates in 1960. It all seemed very important to my young eyes and I was hooked on “The News”. This life long hobby has never made me money, nor provided happiness. But it did prepare me to notice the huge difference that is Donald John Trump. At a 2015 rally, Trump told U.S. (paraphrase) “I know these all talk, do nothing politicians, I’ve given them money because as a businessman, it’s required to get anything done. I know all of them personally and let me tell you, they are even worse than you think”
He’s had my full attention ever since.
Joe F. commented on newsconf 2019-06-30 07:29:12 -0400The North Korea problem goes back to 1950 and Harry Truman. For 69 years and after 11 presidents, No one had been able to get a grip on what to do about NK … until now.
Our POTUS will earn the Nobel Peace Prize .. and this time it won’t be a joke.
Joe F. commented on Orally 2019-06-19 22:06:45 -0400I’ve been reading what the enemies of POTUS have been saying. UniParty Inc. is stunned that after all the poison they’ve injected into the body politic, Trump is stronger than ever. The whole Never Trump universe is trying to shake off the reality of his triumph in Orlando .. a political tour de force. And the Trump 2020 campaign raising $25mil in a 24hr period only adds to their despair.
Joe F. commented on gaza 2019-05-06 22:23:15 -0400Iran has given the scum running the Gaza terror state a new weapon. This is what the people of Israel are now facing:
The Iranian Badr 3 missile explodes within 20m of target and releases a 1,400-piece shower of shrapnel fragments. On Monday, April 6, hours into the Gaza ceasefire, Palestinian and Iranian sources released a video showcasing the new Iranian weapon targeting Ashkelon, 13 km north of Gaza. At least four of the new Iranian missiles were shown on May 4 and 5 during the 700-rocket blitz on the Israeli population from Saturday morning.
The Badr 3 was said by Iranian sources to have been supplied, possibly with technology and components, to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas’ partner in the latest round of rocket attacks. While earlier versions of the rocket carried 40 kilos of explosives, the Badr 3 has an explosive warhead of 250 kilos.
The new weapon made its Middle East battlefield debut in Yamen in early April in the hands of the Iranian-backed Houthi insurgents. Jihad in Gaza was therefore the first terrorist organization to use it against Israel.
DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that the Badr 3 has a range of 150km. Its greatest asset is that it explodes 20 meters above the target before landing, showering 1,400 pieces of shrapnel across a wide area. This feature greatly enhances its capacity to harm multiple human targets and wreak damage to buildings over a wide radius.
Due to this capacity, many people in Ashkelon and Ashdod were injured after hearing the rocket alerts before they were able to reach safe shelter. Four people were killed and more than 250 Israelis were injured – many from flying shrapnel and many buildings took direct hits.
Joe F. commented on CTH 2019-04-23 13:38:59 -0400If sundance can lay it out for U.S in the public square like he has done. .. then you can be sure that privately the POTUS & AG Barr know all of this and More.
The coup is collapsing but still ongoing .. and the now desperate conspirators are even more dangerous than before. The imperative is to have an indictment of one of conspirators to signal that it’s truly over.
Arrest just one traitor who has left the most obvious trail of criminality .. and let the great unraveling begin.
Joe F. commented on over 2019-04-18 19:18:26 -0400“I doubt that anyone who spent the last three years pushing utterly concocted conspiracy theories will own up to it, let alone confront any accountability or consequences for it.
But certain facts will never go away no matter how much denial they embrace. The sweeping Mueller investigation ended with zero indictments of zero Americans for conspiring with Russia over the 2016 election. Both Donald Trump, Jr. and Jared Kushner – the key participants in the Trump Tower meeting – testified for hours and hours yet were never charged for perjury, lying or obstruction, even though Mueller proved how easily he would indict anyone who lied as part of the investigation. And this massive investigation simply did not establish any of the conspiracy theories that huge parts of the Democratic Party, the intelligence community and the U.S. media spent years encouraging the public to believe.
Those responsible for this can refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing. They can even claim vindication if they want and will likely be cheered for doing so.
But the contempt in which the media and political class is held by so much of the U.S. population – undoubtedly a leading factor that led to Trump’s election in the first place – will only continue to grow as a result, and deservedly so. People know they were scammed, that their politics was drowned for years by a hoax. And none of that will go away no matter how insulated media and political elites in Washington, northern Virginia, Brooklyn, and large West Coast cities keep themselves, and thus hear only in-group affirmation while blocking out all of that well-earned scorn."

Joe F. commented on Over With 2019-03-23 10:06:15 -0400The Russian Collusion Delusion: It was a hoax .. it was the ‘insurance policy’ that Peter Strzok and his co-conspirators planned.
Over 2 years of our time invested .. billions of words spoken and written .. thousands of hours of TV coverage .. 100’s of millions of our $$$ spent .. untold damage done to the Trump presidency and our country.
There will come a time to settle accounts.
Joe F. commented on Chairman 2019-03-13 19:35:36 -0400Yes .. the Volusia Republican Party works hard.
Yes .. President Trump is bringing new voters into the GOP.
But the main driver of our success in Volusia Co. is the Democrat Party itself. They have morphed into something unrecognizable to working / middle class Americans. Democrats have allowed the most radical elements of the Left to take over their party.
The Donkey Party is now a clique whose members reside largely in urban areas, with NYC and LA County their strongholds. These places do not represent the majority of U.S. 2020 is going to be a political war.
“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
Joe F. commented on vagov 2019-02-02 07:58:33 -0500In his short time as Gov. .. Ralph did more to help re-elect Trump than anyone could have imagined. His “I have no regrets” support of infanticide permanently marked the Democrat Party as radicals and moved the needle away from their toxic brand. And unless they collectively renounce their passion for killing the unborn and the just born .. that needle won’t ever move back towards them.
Joe F. commented on emergency 2019-01-27 09:00:59 -0500President Trump is trying to force Congress to own the border issue with him and in the name of the American people .. fight for our sovereignty. If that actually happened, it would be a powerful signal of national strength for all to see .. boosting every aspect of America influence across the world.
But we know the bitter truth – The Democrats are traitors who hate the idea American greatness and want crime, drugs, disease, gangs and endless welfare for illegals inflicted on U.S. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3f8adcdd32114047edc6f534f5243d7bb69dbfd28defbbc091e7b51fa5168d51.jpg
They’ll use these scorched earth tactics in an attempt to defeat Trump 2020 .. which is the overriding mission of the fanatical donkey party and of their state media / Hollywood co-conspirators.
