In an extraordinary move, the City Council has apologized for the city’s historic role in slavery, discrimination and denial of basic liberties to Black residents and voted to provide reparations to them and their descendants.
The unanimously passed resolution does not mandate direct payments. Instead it will make investments in areas where Black residents face disparities.
Councilman Vijay Kapoor who has often split with Young and Smith on police and budget issues said he supported the measure for moral reasons. But he said skeptics could look to the “practical reason”: data showing showing large disparities between African Americans and other Asheville residents.
“We don’t want to be held back by these gaps,” Kapoor said. “We want everyone to be successful.”
We all know how these initiatives go. Still, it is good to see this happen at a local level so the rest of us can observe and note the issues with diverse leadership and its inevitable push to subsidize the underclass at the expense of the majority. Reparations-with-repatriation for all non-WASPs remains the best option for an American future.
“For far too long public safety has been equated with more police,” said Mayor Jesse Arreguin.
The reform plan also seeks to remove armed officers from homeless services and mental health and crisis management, the East Bay Times said. It also establishes a community safety coalition and steering committee, and initiates an analysis of police calls and responses. Details are to be determined by the city manager and auditor.
Numerous studies have shown Black motorists are much more likely to be stopped by police than whites for minor traffic infractions and the results sometimes can be deadly.
More hacks to try to make diversity fair even though it is inherently unfair since no one gets what they want, which is a nation for their group in which it alone determines its own future. If we dropped an honesty drug in the water, most people would realize that they want to live among their group alone and be separated from others by strong borders if not big fat oceans.
Seymour has said publicly he has done 138 stories about Scientology over more than a decade, including reports for Today Tonight. Seven news has been supportive over the years, sources say.
Seymour, who has filmed inside the Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles for an earlier story, told Guardian Australia he couldn’t comment on why the program was not being launched and we should contact Seven.
A spokesman for Seven refused to confirm suggestions the series had been cancelled for legal reasons.
Attention anti-Jew people (the term “anti-Semitism” is too vague and loaded to be of much use): in a democracy, any organized and well-funded group exhibits power that resembles a conspiracy. With diversity, this becomes ethnic and racial as well. Instead of focusing on who the groups are, it makes more sense to focus on what creates this system of internal division and infighting.
Long at the center of the debate has been the potential price tag of paying slavery descendants, for which studies broadly include most or all of the 41 million black people in the country.
A new study from three college professors said that the ultimate cost could be $6.2 quadrillion. Quadrillion comes after trillion, and one quadrillion has 15 zeros.
The study suggests a payment of $151 million each, and the cost to every person would be $18.96 million.
Paying them $100k each to relocate to Africa would only cost $4.1 trillion, which is roughly what we spend on entitlements every two years. If we factor in the high costs of affirmative action, riots, lawsuits, diversity officers, and other drains on our productivity, we would be making money within three years.
“We should be dealing with economic crisis. And we should be dealing with the racism that is in our country, to which the president speaks to, because he has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacist,” Hirono said.
“That’s a lot of his base and who he speaks to, so the divisiveness continues.”
Divisiveness naturally and inevitably arises from diversity itself, which is what the Left is trying to cover up with statements like this one. Ending diversity would unite the country and end the constant infighting and parasitism. Leftists possess one insult: “you are not egalitarian!” which should surprise no one, since Leftists are egalitarians and the rest of us, by definition, are people who do not believe that egalitarianism should be the organizing principle of our civilization. If all the Leftists ended up in Venezuela, the rest of us would continue in our inegalitarian ways, namely rewarding people for doing good, punishing those who do bad, and ignoring the mediocre.
Methane (CH4) has a warming potential 28 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period and its concentration in the atmosphere has more than doubled since the Industrial Revolution.
Over a 20-year period, it is more than 80 times as potent.
While there are a number of natural methane sources such as wetlands and lakes, the team behind the study concluded that 60 percent of CH4 emissions are now manmade.
The CO2 fascination falls because we can see that instead of “climate change,” we should have simply be focused on the problem of pollution itself. Methane, microplastics, particulates, toxic complex chemicals, and litter all have the same end result: they overload the ability of the ecosystem to regenerate. Not surprisingly, these are having local weather effects everywhere they are tried, which is everywhere since humanity is urbanizing every region of the planet.
“Gary’s removal from SFMOMA is non-negotiable,” read the petition. “Considering his lengthy tenure at this institution, we ask just how long have his toxic white supremacist beliefs regarding race and equity directed his position curating the content of the museum?”
The petitioners cite few examples of anything even approaching bad behavior from Garrels. Their sole complaint is that he allegedly concluded a presentation on how to diversify the museum’s holdings by saying, “don’t worry, we will definitely still continue to collect white artists.”
Garrels has apparently articulated this sentiment on more than one occasion. According to artnet.com, he said that it would be impossible to completely shun white artists, because this would constitute “reverse discrimination.”
Man says anti-racist thing, gets called a racist and has his career destroyed by bullies who would be silent in times when only the useful are rewarded.
In a larger sense, the mainstreaming of calling out the danger that white women and their tears pose has been building up to this moment. There’s the oft-cited stat that 52% of white women voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Meanwhile, the constant lies of white women like Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders in service of the Trump Administration have made it abundantly clear that white women can and are often complicit in oppressive systems. Coupled with the rise of social media and the smartphone camera, the longtime narrative of white women as helpless victims in need of protection is now being challenged by video evidence of them as instigators of not only conflict, but violence.
When did Time become pozzed? This stuff is such a collection of Communist buzzwords that it becomes comical to even try to analyze it. It is like someone collected all the anti-Jewish and anti-Catholic conspiracy theories and replaced the terms for those religions with “white women.”
In 1950, women were having an average of 4.7 children in their lifetime.
Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation showed the global fertility rate nearly halved to 2.4 in 2017 – and their study, published in the Lancet, projects it will fall below 1.7 by 2100.
Instead it is being driven by more women in education and work, as well as greater access to contraception, leading to women choosing to have fewer children.
In many ways, falling fertility rates are a success story.
This repeats a tired Leftist trope: send women to work, and they have fewer children, and humanity benefits from having its population under control. The Leftist future for humanity is one where everyone works an office job, has extensive useless education, and basically spends their time on irrelevant stuff so that they are perfect obedient conformists for the power structure. In reality, people are having fewer children on average because more people are dropping out and not breeding, starting with our most intelligent. The Leftist “success story” is an epitaph as usual.
In a June 30 episode of his podcast “Cannon’s Class,” Cannon interviewed Professor Griff, a rapper who had been part of the group Public Enemy until he was fired in 1989 for saying that “Jews are responsible for the majority of the wickedness in the world.”
In the interview, Cannon praised Griff and the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and promoted conspiracy theories about the Rothschild banking family and claims that people of African descent are the “true” Jews. “You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” he said.
Everyone advances the interests of his group. This means that groups will conflict in a diverse society.
“In total, 87 people were arrested,” LMPD said in their statement. “Due to their refusal to leave the property and their attempts to influence the decision of the Attorney General with their actions, each person was charged with Intimidating a Participant in a Legal Process (Class D felony), Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree (Class B misdemeanor), and Criminal Trespass 3rd Degree. (Violation).”
As more evidence comes out showing that the George Floyd story was a hoax and the Breonna Taylor event involved police announcing themselves, people are tiring of these protests and more willing to arrest the rioters, since those have lost the presumption of moral legitimacy because their quest is based on lies.
Companies such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat will have 24 hours to remove other “manifestly illicit” content, according to the law, which sets up a specialised digital prosecutor at the courts and a government unit to observe hate speech online.
This is wonderful. They are going to censor everything Right-wing and drive the mainstream Right underground along with the far-Right, resulting in everyone becoming radicalized. That in turn will spell the death of the “socialist Right,” and cause us to transition away from modern systems entirely toward a more traditional order of aristocrats, feudalism, nationalism, and strong faith.
Christopher Cantwell, a New Hampshire resident who rose to prominence in 2017 after a violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has remained in federal custody since he pleaded not guilty to using the Telegram messaging app last year to threaten to rape the wife of the person he was having a dispute with. He also threatened to publish the person’s personal information on the internet.
Cantwell was initially charged with extortion and sending interstate threats. But on July 8, he was indicted on additional charges of cyberstalking and threatening to injure property or reputation.
Laws surrounding threats were designed to tackle people directly threatening each other in situations where this could lead to violence, not someone spouting off over the internet.
Prosecutors say Denton was leader of a group called Atomwaffen Division. More than a dozen people linked to Atomwaffen Division or an offshoot called Feuerkrieg Division have been charged with federal crimes since the group’s formation in 2016.
Denton and his conspirators’ targets in 2018 and 2019 included the Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, then-Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and Old Dominion University in Norfolk, where one of the members of the swatting conspiracy attended college.
Denton also placed swatting calls to the New York City offices of news outlet ProPublica, and to a ProPublica reporter in Richmond, California. ProPublica articles had identified Denton as an Atomwaffen leader.
The Right does everything but what it needs to: unite on a platform that will allow us to seize power and repeal all the Leftist laws that keep the Left in power.
Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, 58, acknowledged his role in a scheme in which donors made large contributions to Chabad of Poway but then secretly got most of the money back, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Typically the synagogue would keep a portion of the contribution — perhaps 10% — then funnel the remaining 90% back to the donor, the newspaper said.
Authorities said the donor could then claim a large charitable contribution on their taxes, despite having only put out a fraction of the claimed amount.
Foreign groups specialize in tax fraud in America because it enables them to force the moronic majority of voters to pay for these foreign groups, allowing those groups to become more powerful at the expense of the dying majority.
A coroner’s report on Robinson’s death said he died of asphyxiation and blunt force trauma, exacerbated by asthma. The coroner said there were signs of trauma on Robinson’s neck and that the death was classified as a homicide.
“While a homicide is the killing of one person by another, not every homicide is a crime,” Connick said in a news release. “As in all cases, our review must focus upon the elements of proof as well as any legal justifications or defenses that may apply.”
As the Narrative fades, the pushback toward sanity begins. We clean up yet another democracy/diversity tantrum, tack the costs onto our debt, and move forward as best we can.
Prof. Yaakov Nahmias says that his research shows that the novel coronavirus is so vicious because it causes lipids to be deposited in the lungs, and that there is a solution to undo the damage: a widely-used anti cholesterol drug called fenofibrate.
Interesting analysis and if he is correct, a promising treatment. Blood thinners seem to help, which may lend support to his thesis.
A massive boycott was launched against Goya Foods after its CEO Robert Unanue gave a speech at the White House Rose Garden this past Thursday. Unanue proclaimed that Trump was “a builder,” like his own illustrious grandfather, and called for Americans to pray for their president.
Since then, former Member of Congress Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) tweeted a video proclaiming that he would “no longer be buying” Goya’s products. Gutierrez claimed that Goya as a company has betrayed “their once loyal Latino consumers” and called upon his followers to “Join me in taking a stand as a consumer and boycotting Goya. #Goyaway.”
A Twitter user responded by tweeting an image of stacked Goya adobo canisters July 11. A Day prior, the same user posted a can of Goya’s black beans wearing a MAGA hat. Twitter censored both posts, placing an interstitial, or filter, on them and suggesting the images contained “potentially sensitive content.”
The Left specialize in symbolism, not reality, but their hysterical supporters seem not to care. In the meantime, everyone else is inching away from what increasingly looks like a failing dogma that has turned to totalitarianism in order to keep its tenuous hold on power.
“This is clearly hyperpolitical,” Watkins said.
The first question of the night, posed to all three challengers, was: “What is your response to the charges?”
Watkins, who was hit with three felony charges and a misdemeanor count, is accused of having used a Topeka UPS store as his registration address for the 2019 local city and school board election and voting in the wrong City Council district.
Watkins later listed the address for an apartment complex about 2 miles north of the UPS store as his residence, then corrected his voter registration form in mid-January to list an apartment number.
The Left want to get as many cucks back into office as possible. Controlled opposition is the best kind, in their view.
The victims are Hispanic and the suspects are African American.
Diversity coming undone as the fragile minority coalition fights itself. As saner voices said years ago, diversity means everyone fighting everyone else for control of something that eventually, no one will want. It is a path to becoming a third-world nation and nothing else.
Sessions, 73, was wounded by Trump’s criticisms after he recused himself in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. The first U.S. senator to endorse Trump during the GOP presidential primary campaign, Sessions insisted throughout his attempted comeback and again in defeat that he was required by law to recuse because he was a potential subject and witness given his campaign ties to the president.
Populists want to remove the “principle over results” Republicans because these guys are idiots; the only meaningful upholding of principle is in achieving positive results, and those who like to lose gracefully are, well, losers. Their goal is to go out there and preach negativity and fail, then go back and tell everyone how their failure was Christ-like because they kept their principles intact.
Unions are the real power in the Capitol, and they see AB 5 as a template for similar action in other states and Congress. If they can’t compete, they’ll use the political process to kill the competition.
Any conservative who still supports legal protection for unions has a mental health problem.
Seems like some issues with cancel culture have made it into the mainstream. Dilbert is now making fun of the Leftist Regime the same way it makes fun of corporate office culture, idiotic trends, and mass conformity. Maybe these are one and the same?
As riot police were deployed, protestors began to chant, “Death to the Armenian.” These pro-war protest emerged after Azerbaijan’s failed invasion in Tavush, Armenia, where over a dozen of their soldiers died.
People continued to chant, “We are not going without Karabakh!” The protestors then called for the resignation and death of Azeri General Najmaddin Sadigov, who has been the Chief of General Staff of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces since 1993.
Soon thereafter, Azeri demonstrators broke into the parliament building. Riot police began to restore order by attacking the rallies and beating them, causing them to exit the building.
Diversity continues failing everywhere that it exists.
A sculpture of a Black protester with her fist raised in the air has been erected in a stealthy night-time operation in place of a 17th Century English slave trader whose statue was toppled by anti-racism demonstrators in the port city of Bristol.
Leftists specialize in symbolism and fail at the more complex task of reality.
The debate in the Senedd has been called by nationalist party Plaid Cymru on the back of opinion polls showing increased support for breaking away from the UK over the course of the coronavirus outbreak.
The most recent survey found a record high 25 per cent backing for independence — well short of the 54 per cent reported in Scotland but four points up since January.
As diversity collapses in flames, people are considering whether its precursor, the nation-state, should exist at all. Perhaps we are better off as nations: ethnic groups ruling themselves, separated from all others, with no one to blame or sponge off of.
The MOEA attributed this strong showing to local firms relocating their production facilities back to Taiwan since the second half of 2018 in response to the U.S-China trade war. This has been supported by several government initiatives targeting Taiwan companies, including the Action Plan for Welcoming Overseas Taiwanese Businesses to Return to Invest in Taiwan launched early last year, the ministry said.
Trump won, and stopped our industry from further subsidizing Communism in Asia and Socialism in Europe.
The body camera videos and transcripts were filed in court last week by Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, as part of a motion to have Lane’s case dismissed. Gray said at the time that he wanted the videos to be made public, telling the Star Tribune that they would show the “whole picture.” Gray said the bystander video shows just the last piece of what happened and “is not fair.”
The video footage could provide a more vivid picture of what happened the night Floyd was arrested on suspicion of passing a fake $20 bill. The transcripts show Floyd appearing cooperative at times but becoming agitated as he begged not to be put in a squad car, saying repeatedly he was claustrophobic. The transcripts also detailed Floyd thrashing about in the back of the squad car to the point where he injured himself.
The Narrative collapses as the facts come out, despite being suppressed by Judge [[[ Peter Cahill ]]]. Boats to Ireland and Africa!
At that time, Telegram deleted not just Terrorwave’s main channel but also the backups it had created for sporadic removals. The platform also booted others, including Misanthropic Division, the militant wing of the Azov Battalion, and RapeKrieg, a vile Satanist neo-Nazi group.
We need to own our own services and backbone providers. I suggest we quit screwing around with extremist groups and focus on a mainstream platform to drive out the Left and replaces the laws that keep it in power.
Then, all of a sudden, that seemed to change. When Reddit announced last week it was shutting down a noxious pro-Trump group that had violated the site’s rules for years, Kelley could scarcely believe it.
The media praises those who obey it. Reddit deleted a whole bunch of conservative groups in the lead up to an election, and this makes media Leftists happy.
