The likes of logging and poaching have pushed 500 mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians to the point where they’re hanging by a thread, research found.
This is yet more evidence that the world’s undergoing a sixth mass extinction, scientists argue.
Prof Chris Johnson of the University of Tasmania said the current rate of extinction of species is higher than at any time since 66 million years ago, when the collision of a space-rock with the Earth killed off dinosaurs and many other species.
Will we ever love ourselves, if we murdered the best gift ever set before us, existence?
We kill our environment, and we kill ourselves with soulless jobs, diversity-wracked cities, bureaucracy, ugly architecture, sexual servitude (sorry: “liberation”), ruined families, moronic pop culture, and of course the constant pollution, including of human waste people.
We can fix all of this, but we have to want to be good (arete) first.
He denounced “acts of domestic terror” after nationwide protests against the death of an unarmed African American George Floyd in police custody devolved into days of violent race riots across the country.
“I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and a lengthy sentences in jail,” Trump said as police could be heard using tear gas and stun grenades to clear protestors just outside the White House.
Only consequences will stop these people. Did anyone ever get successfully prosecuted for what happened to Reginald Denny? In the meantime, when your “peaceful protests” always turn into mass theft, assault, and arson, it seems as they are just a cover story. Diversity has never worked, and now once again it shows us the high cost of ignoring that fact.
I have no idea if the neighbor’s comments had a racist undertone. But it felt like the times in my childhood, first in New Zealand, then in a Bay Area suburb, when I had seen my Philippines-born parents, stunned and silent, get dressed down or humiliated by angry, callous white people.
No one likes foreigners around. We know that they are our replacements.
Lloyd wrote that there was “no email, no explanation, no courtesy call or text” from Twitter to explain why he had lost his verification badge.
However, Lloyd speculated that it could be related to his recent tweets where he has condemned looters, argued that “not all cops are bad,” and retweeted Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s viral “take the red pill” tweet.
Social media is just propaganda at this point.
But government sources said it was being put on hold until Wednesday because it was not ready for publishing.
They now say it has been delayed further because it is in “close proximity to the current situation in America” and it would be a “bad combination” if it was released amid global outrage over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
If life sucks for minorities everywhere in the West in multiple ways, maybe it is not “racism” that is to blame, but simply diversity itself.
“The people who want to make their voices heard did so peacefully, respecting the First Amendment rights and the property rights of other people,” the sheriff said. “But all those businesses being damaged – those are livelihoods being damaged.”
The peaceful protesters are just giving the rioters cover, as usual. The group consists mostly of goodwhites and angry minorities.
I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights,” Trump said in the extraordinary address, which was delivered as police fired smoke devices outside to push protesters back from the White House.
“We are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now,” Trump said.
Trump said that governors should deploy the National Guard in great numbers so that they “dominate the streets.”
At this rate, even if he kills a few thousand rioters, he will have saved lives. #LooterLivesDoNotMatter
The media, visibly exhilarated by this latest explosion of black rage, had its own explanation for the chaos: people were outraged that the officer who had kept his knee on Floyd’s neck for a sickening eight-plus minutes had not yet been arrested and charged. But when that arrest came, along with murder and manslaughter charges after a lightning-fast investigation by the district attorney, the anarchy continued—not just in Minneapolis but across the country, intensfied by Antifa radicals.
You cannot have rule of law in a diverse society because the infighting will always dominate any unity. In other news, when a 6’6″ dude on meth and fentanyl starts raging against four five-foot cops, they are going to hold him down until backup arrives. If he later dies from a heart attack brought on by the excitement, it is legally impossible to prove that it was caused by him being subdued, since the excitement of the arrest itself might have killed him.
University of Alabama at Birmingham archeologist Sarah Parcak took to Twitter Sunday evening offering details on how to bring an obelisk down as demonstrators in the city’s Linn Park defaced a Confederate monument and tore down a statue of Confederate Naval captain Charles Linn Sunday night.
“Moderate” Leftists wink, nudge, and aid “extremist” Leftists. We are going to have to send all of these people to Venezuela permanently.
Some of the synagogues damaged as a result of vandalism, graffiti and looting by protesters include Congregation Kehilas Yaakov, also known as Rabbi Gershon Bess Shul, and Tiferes Tzvi (Rabbi Ganzweig Shul) on Beverly Boulevard in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. Elder of Ziyon, a pro-Israel activist, recorded clips of some of the damage done to the synagogues in Fairfax.
Old diversity, meet new diversity.
The country waited more than one week before publishing the genome of the novel coronavirus on 11 January, despite the fact three different government labs had fully sequenced the genetic code.
And for two weeks afterwards, China also delayed providing the WHO with more detailed data on patients and cases, according to the recordings, making it difficult for officials to judge whether the virus could spread between people, and what risk it might mean for the rest of the world.
One WHO official reportedly complained: “We’re going on very minimal information. It’s clearly not enough for you to do proper planning.”
Globalism has died. It only worked when we thought it meant a permanent peace. Now we see that it means the bad guys get ahead on our dime.
The Pastena family is still trying to process the last three months. First, they had to close their three restaurants because of COVID-19 and now they are picking up the pieces of the unrest Oakland faced over the weekend.
They recently took down a sign from their window that read “Black Owned” after receiving threats telling Jana Pastena she is not black enough.
“My responsibly to help my black community, I want to speak about those things but I don’t have time for people who want to destroy us just because they think that I’m not black or because I’m in an interracial marriage,” said Jana Pastena.
The ghetto always burns itself, then they are shocked to find that prices are higher in the rebuilt stores.
It wasn’t until the 19th century, as industrialising cities exploded in size, that the formal study of crowd psychology and herd behaviour emerged. Reflecting on the French Revolution a century earlier, thinkers such as Gustave Le Bon helped promote the idea that a crowd is always on the verge of becoming a mob. Stirred up by agitators, crowds could quickly turn to violence, sweeping up even good, upstanding citizens in their collective madness. “By the mere fact that he forms part of an organised crowd,” Le Bon wrote, “a man descends several rungs in the ladder of civilisation.”
The last week has certainly proved his point.
“Police are lynching people right on the streets of American cities,” he wrote. “They are strangling citizens, beating them up, ramming them with cars.”
Mr Kadyrov called on international institutions and the United Nations to intervene to protect against “human rights violations … and extrajudicial executions”.
The comments will have surprised many of his compatriots in Chechnya, the Islamic republic on Russia‘s southern border, where he has a long history of crushing dissent and systematic human-rights violations.
The rest of the world is cheering on these protests because they want to see America be weaker. In their narrow short-term sight, a weaker America means that they are stronger, but they forget that they must actually produce more — both product and goodness, including culture — to actually be stronger. They just got fooled by the parallax motion, where America sliding backward makes them think they are moving forwards.
It listed Mr Floyd’s cause of death as “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression”.
In other words, law enforcement brought on something that was inevitably happening, and we have no idea what part of the arrest did it. He may have gone into cardiac arrest when they first put the cuffs on him. Despite what the armchair lawyers out there say, for a murder or manslaughter conviction, the risk of death must have been discernible or anticipatable. Invisible heart conditions and covert drug use do not qualify.
He said officers were attempting to disperse a large crowd of demonstrators in front of the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino on the Vegas Strip and were being hit with rocks and bottles form the crowd. While trying to detain some people, Lombado said, “a shot rang out and our officer went down.” The officer was on life support and a suspect was in custody.
“Peaceful” protests by “innocent” victims.
People rushed into a Nike store and carried out armloads of clothing. Near Rockefeller Center, storefront windows were smashed and multiple people arrested. Bank windows were smashed. Wreckage littered the inside of an AT&T store.
As usual, the riots are about revenge and theft, not any serious political idea.
“There won’t be any Zionist state like the one we speak about [in present-day Israel]. … The Palestinian minority will become a Palestinian majority of what is today called Israel,” said Barghouti, JNS reported
In the course of admitting his movement seeks to destroy Israel by eliminating its character as a Jewish state, Barghouti trotted out all of BDS’ favorite themes, from importing millions of descendants of Arabs who left Israel during the War of Independence to the lie that Israel is an “apartheid” state.
Demographic replacement is the third-world goal worldwide. If they succeed, they will merely achieve equal poverty, but socialists always do that.
The suspects then jumped into six different cars, three dark colored cars and three white cars, before speeding off towards Gravois. Police believed one of the cars was a KIA while another was a white Subaru with a hood scoop and a factory spoiler.
Somehow the usual Leftist demands for gun control are not appearing.
The Pentagon’s annual report on China’ military strength from 2019 describes the A2/AD strategy as a means to “dissuade, deter, or, if required, defeat third-party intervention against a large-scale, theater-wide campaign” mounted by China’s People’s Liberation Army, or PLA. In short, it appears Beijing’s aim is to prevent American and allied military forces from operating freely in the A2/AD airspace and maritime “bubble” around China’s coastline.
Covered by the Clintons, China has been preparing for war for a long time.
The manslaughter charge against former Columbus Police Officer Canyon Boykin has been dismissed with prejudice, meaning the case is now closed permanently.
Circuit Judge Lee Coleman signed the order on Monday.
Boykin was charged in the 2015 shooting death of Ricky Ball.
People want law and order. The Left wants anarchy and theft. It has never been clearer.
The online activist collective has seen millions of new accounts follow its profiles and huge numbers of people sharing its posts.
But even the biggest accounts involved seemed confused by the new attention, which appears to have been partly supported by fans of Korean pop music.
In recent days, many of the biggest Anonymous accounts have pledged their support to protestors against police brutality and racism that began after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The Left just fully absorbed Anonymous, continuing its path of the past few years. If you were some anon with an account that had a hundred thousand followers, would you turn down a giant bag of cash to post some Leftist woo? Of course not. Thus the NGOs easily fold these groups.
These employees expressed disappointment and shame in the decision by Facebook’s leaders to leave up a Thursday post from Trump in which the president said that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
Leftists simply want censorship. They want their side to win in the great football game of politics. What comes after that? They have not given it a single thought.
Donald Trump complained “the Jews always flip” after a number of former Jewish associates agreed to cooperate with the Mueller probe, according to an explosive new book by journalist Michael Wolff.
This is probably fake and paraphrases older comments by Richard Nixon.
The next day, Falwell tweeted that he was “adamantly opposed” to the mask mandate “until I decided to design my own.” With it, he posted a picture of a mask bearing a racist photo that appeared on Northam’s medical yearbook page and — when made public last year — sparked a scandal that nearly forced him from office. The photo showed a person in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan costume.
Each year, more race guilt… and less of a nation.
Colinford Mattis, a 32-year-old corporate attorney, and Urooj Rahman, 31 year-old human rights lawyer, are accused of torching a police vehicle in Brooklyn on Saturday during an eruption of violent demonstrations over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white Minnesota police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and pleading for air.
One set of rules for Leftists, and a much harsher one for the rest of us.
“I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told reporters during a news briefing.
“And if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone.”
This is normal, sane and healthy. Soyfroot pyjama boys clutching cell phones under the bed is broken, insane, and unhealthy.
The app currently lets people filter potential matches according to their age, height, weight and ethnicity.
But critics say the ethnicity filter fuels discrimination and that the app does too little to tackle racism.
Announcing the change, Grindr said it had a “zero-tolerance policy for racism and hate speech” on its platform.
Better not be discriminatory when searching for sodomy.
With the programs, Wichita police officers will stop issuing tickets in low-income areas for equipment violations, like a burnt out headlight. Instead, they’ll issue a voucher to get the equipment fixed.
Another shakedown for free stuff. It never ends, until we default and end up a third world nation.
Video of Atlanta police officers pulling the students from a car and shocking them with Tasers has sparked national outrage and resulted in the termination of two of the cops. The others have been placed on desk duty.
Humans cannot stop seeking their fifteen minutes of fame by riding the latest trend. If anyone was thinking (no one is) they would object to this obvious negative influence on the legal process, which is one of our most sacred and necessary things.
In Birmingham, where Rudolph lives, the graffiti-covered, pocked base of a massive Confederate monument was all that remained Tuesday after crews dismantled the towering obelisk and trucked it away in pieces overnight. Other symbols came down elsewhere, leaving an empty pedestal in Virginia and a bare flagpole in Florida.
Most humans operate by pretense and sentiment. In the dying days of a society, it switches to democracy, and so this wins out, leading to history being erased. If the West falls, no one in the future will know why, because nothing truthful will remain.
