Multiple bodycam videos have been leaked to the Daily Mail showing more evidence of Floyd’s excited delirium during the incident that led to his death.

The footage shows the uncooperative George Floyd, in a suspected drug fueled rage, resisting arrest and claiming “I can’t breathe” while standing upright and shouting at the officers.

Main reason for assuming a nuke is nearly the circular cloud that formed on ignition. I have to concede that the the explosion was not bright or strong enough to be a nuke of any type we are familiar with. Saw amonium nitrate cited from an apparently mideleastern media outlet, which is more trust worthy then anything else I can come up with right now.

Chicago-Area Leaders Call for Illinois to Abolish History Classes
State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history teachings overlook the contributions of women and minorities

Leaders in education, politics and other areas gathered in suburban Evanston Sunday to ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an alternative is decided upon.

At a news conference, State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history teachings lead to a racist society and overlook the contributions of women and minorities.

Before the event Sunday, Rep. Ford's office distributed a news release "Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools," in which Ford asked the ISBOE and school districts to immediately remove history curriculum and books that "unfairly communicate" history "until a suitable alternative is developed."

The representative instead suggested that schools devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand democratic processes.

"It costs us as a society in the long run forever when we don’t understand our brothers and sisters that we live, work and play with,” Ford said.

This was covered in class and the textbook, back when I was in school, which was a lot longer than half a decade ago. It was always about slavery, and for at least 20 years and perhaps longer (idk I didn't go to school all the way back then), Texas schools have taught that it was about slavery. Don't confuse Texas with the rest of the South that clamored about states' rights, Texans were quite open about it being a slavery issue.

The Tulsa race riot was an isolated event that had no major historical impact to anyone that wasn't from Tulsa

The coronavirus pandemic threatens America with a new wave of homelessness due to a cratering economy, expiring unemployment stimulus payments and vanishing renter protections.

What they're saying: "I've never seen this many people poised to lose their housing in such a short period of time," said Bill Faith of the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio [to AP].

The big picture: 23 million Americans are at risk of eviction and exposure to the shelter system during a pandemic, the AP reports, citing the Aspen Institute.
- The latest Census Bureau [Household Pulse Survey] found last week that more than 26.5% of American adults 18 or older questioned whether they would be able to make last month's rent or mortgage payment or had little or no confidence they could pay next month, the AP notes.

Many lower-income Americans initially got by on credit cards and stimulus checks, National Apartment Association CEO Bob Pinnegar told Axios' Kim Hart.
- Now those options are gone. "The hole that they're getting in from a financial standpoint is going to take years for them to dig out of, if they ever can."

Are masks giving men a licence to leer? Women report a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' since face coverings became commonplace as an expert warns they 'provide anonymity' for threatening behaviour
-- Women online are reporting a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' from men in masks
-- Social media users are sharing stories of 'so much hard staring happening'
-- UN Women UK Executive Director said to be aware of 'anonymity masks provide'
-- Claire Barnett told FEMAIL: 'We need to create an understanding that behaviour like unwanted and persistent staring is intimidating'

Women across the country are reporting a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' since the introduction of face coverings in some public places.

New laws introduced over the weekend force customers to wear face masks in all shops, stations, banks and post offices, while it is also mandatory to wear coverings on public transport.

But many women have been sharing stories online of 'aggressive eye contact' and 'hard staring' from men wearing masks, with one tweeting: 'Grown men staring at you with a mask on is worse than when they don't have a mask.'

UN Women UK Executive Director Claire Barnett told FEMAIL: 'As we work to "build back better" following lockdown, we need to prevent the lack of witnesses of antisocial behaviour due to less populated public spaces, as well as the anonymity face coverings can provide, leading to further rises in harassment and threatening actions towards women, girls and minoritised groups.

Indeed, certain thoughts are slowly diffused in the population that lock people unconsciously into predefined behaviors. This creates a kind of soft social manipulation that gradually deprives people of their free will.

Multiple explosions rocked Downtown Beirut Tuesday, according to several eyewitnesses. Buildings several kilometers away suffered material damage and the explosions were heard over 20 kilometers north of Beirut.

It remains unclear what caused the explosions. At least one explosion took place near former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Downtown Beirut residence, LBCI reported. Another local TV station, MTV, quoted a security source as saying that the explosion took place at a storage facility at the Port of Beirut.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-global-race-protests/oregon-says-federal-agents-to-pull-back-from-portland-after-clashes-idUSKCN24U2GW

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Oregon’s governor on Wednesday said the federal government has agreed to withdraw agents from Portland, a step toward ending a standoff with U.S. President Donald Trump over the use of federal force, although the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it would maintain its presence until conditions improved.

Governor Kate Brown said the government agreed to a phased withdrawal from a federal courthouse in Portland after weeks of clashes between activists and agents, some of whom did not have identifying badges and were seen on video footage pulling protesters into unmarked vans.

The withdrawal in Oregon coincided with the announcement of a deployment of federal law enforcement officials to Cleveland, Milwaukee and Detroit, expanding a separate program aimed at curtailing a surge of murders and other violent crimes in some cities.

“Beginning Thursday, all Customs and Border Protection and ICE officers will leave downtown Portland, and shortly thereafter will begin going home,” Brown said in a statement.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said it had agreed on a joint plan to end the violence in which state and local law enforcement would begin to secure areas around federal properties.

“The department will continue to maintain our current, augmented federal law enforcement personnel in Portland until we are assured that the Hatfield Federal Courthouse and other federal properties will no longer be attacked and that the seat of justice in Portland will remain secure,” DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement.

Republican President Donald Trump, seeking re-election in November, has sought to crack down on protests to highlight his focus on law and order amid protests and unrest across the country after the May 25 killing of a Black man, George Floyd, by Minneapolis police.

Guess who's officially under a criminal investigation?

https://apnews.com/ffdad3a4983088224245dbf761c6d113

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City prosecutor fighting to get President Donald Trump’s tax returns told a judge Monday he was justified in demanding them because of public reports of “extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization.”

Manhattan District Attorney District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. is seeking eight years of the Republican president’s personal and corporate tax records, but has disclosed little about what prompted him to request the records, other than part of the investigation related to payoffs to two women to keep them quiet about alleged affairs with Trump.

In a court filing Monday, attorneys for Vance said the president wasn’t entitled to know the exact nature of the grand jury investigation.

They noted, though, that at the time the subpoena for the tax filings was issued to Trump’s accountants, “there were public allegations of possible criminal activity” at the president’s company “dating back over a decade.”

They cited several newspaper articles, including one in which the Washington Post examined allegations that Trump had a practice of sending financial statements to potential business partners and banks that inflated the worth of his projects by claiming they were bigger or more potentially lucrative than they were.

Another news article described congressional testimony by Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who said the president would overstate the value of his business interests to impress people or lenders, but then deflate the value of assets when trying to reduce his taxes.

Trump is only immune from Federal prosecution, not state. Mueller pushed some of stuff to New York for this very reason. So New York AG Letitia James can indict the sitting president, with tax fraud, bank fraud and money laundering being the most likely charges.

>“What is becoming clearer each day is President Trump’s intent to use this chaos to create a crisis for our democracy."

A new report published Wednesday details months of willful failures to confront the coronavirus pandemic by the White House and paints President Donald Trump’s authoritarian tactics during that national crisis as an overt assault on the nation’s democratic institutions ahead of elections in November.

The report by Common Cause—titled “Intentional Disregard: Trump’s Authoritarianism During the Covid-19 Pandemic,” (pdf)—highlights Trump’s coronavirus response as part of a larger effort by the president to attack U.S. democracy.

As evidence to support its thesis, Common Cause points to the president’s repeated claim that mail-in voting—favored by 58% of Americans according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday—will result in a “rigged” election. The report also shows how the administration is actively undermining the U.S. Postal Service by naming a top GOP donor with no USPS experience as postmaster general.

“None of President Trump’s efforts to thwart oversight of his administration’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic come as a surprise. Throughout his presidency, Trump has abused his power to avoid accountability and install loyalists in key oversight positions.”
—Common Cause

“The Trump administration’s failed response to the Covid-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented public health crisis leading to a worsening economic crisis. What is becoming clearer each day is President Trump’s intent to use this chaos to create a crisis for our democracy,” said Common Cause president Karen Hobert Flynn.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/gop-reps-push-resolution-to-ban-democratic-party-over-past-slavery-ties

A group of Republican House members, led by Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, introduced a resolution Thursday that would effectively ban the Democratic Party from the House or force a party name change over past slavery ties -- a response to the recent efforts to remove tributes to past members of the Confederacy from the halls of Congress.

It specifically cites the Democratic Party platform's support for slavery between 1840 and 1856, and other racist actions by party members through the early-to-mid 1900s, before calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy" from the House and its properties. The resolution also says such a party "shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives."

Gohmert, in a statement accompanying the bill, told Democrats they should rebrand to "avoid triggering" anyone.

"As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred," Gohmert said. "Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan."

He added: "To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur."

This should be more widely known. The 1965 immigration act that removed discrimination towards non-white countries was passed with the explicit disclaimer that it wouldn't significantly change the ethnic make-up of the country. 50 years later, they're celebrating how white people are going extinct

Free Hong Kong protesters held a peaceful rally in New York City on Sunday.

The "Delay No More, Democracy Now" gathering was hosted by New Yorkers Supporting Hong Kong, a NYC-based volunteer group formed to aid the democratic movement in Hong Kong as the resistance fights for autonomy from Communist China.

Signs were laid out in Times Square with "Global Solidarity" painted across them, aligning the "We Are All Hong Kongers" theme. Protestors sang "Glory to Hong Kong," the anthem of the Hong Kong protests, as others waved the Hong Kong flag alongside the American flag. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed communists in America burned the nation's symbol on Independence Day.

Participants were urged to cover in unidentifiable clothing to protect themselves against the National Security Law, NY4HK organizers noted on the group's Facebook event page.

In June, Chinese legislature unanimously passed a new national security law for Hong Kong that could deem anything a threat to "national security" under its provisions. "Secession," "subversion," "terrorism" and "collusion with foreign forces" incur maximum penalties of life imprisonment. But these offences are so broadly defined that they can become catch-all circumstances used in politically-motivated prosecutions.

Two days later, 12 opposition candidates were disqualified from running in the upcoming Legislative Council election. Among them was Joshua Wong, who won the highest voter share in the primary and was allegedly disqualified for calling the National Security Law "draconian."

2. The excuse they use is that I describe #nationalsecuritylaw as a draconian law, which shows that I do not support this sweeping law. pic.twitter.com/7TGttyYxr7— Joshua Wong ??? ? (@joshuawongcf) July 30, 2020

And on Jul. 31, arrest warrants were issued for six pro-democracy activists residing overseas, including one US citizen.

Despite the atrocities Hong Kong has faced, today's peaceful protest was also facilitated without vandalism, looting, arson, and assault, among other "free speech" demonstrations carried out by Antifa militants and Black Lives Matter activists.

The Left is redefining what "civil disobedience" means in a country that upholds free speech, radicals advocate for communism against so-called fascists who have given the socialist movement the space to speak and the platform to protest, and violent George Floyd rioters continue to abuse their constitutional protections and encroach further on the First Amendment.

Yet the BLM message is backed by Democratic leaders, even painted by NYC mayor Bill de Blasio in every borough, while "Free Hong Kong" is suppressed by the elites.

Hong Kong is historically a Chinese city and was forcibly removed from China to serve as a gateway for British opium. I do not understand why these demonstrators are complaining about its return to China, except to take over local power themselves under the cloak of defending "democracy". Moreover, it is natural that China wants to re-impose its law there. This is provided for in the retrocession act: the laws of the whole of China will have to be applied to the whole of the Chinese territory. Why is that a problem? It is the same in any sovereign state (as it is also the case in the USA).

Moreover by its geographical position, the Chinese demography and the rise in power of China (military and economic), a return of HK to it is inevitable no matter what other nations say, who by preaching democracy only want to weaken China. It is thus a game of external and internal powers in which HK is only a pawn.
