Black Lives Matter leaders blast Democrats for not supporting ‘defund the police’ movement

There have been numerous internal discussions by Democratic politicians on attempting to find out why their party underperformed in the 2020 general election. Some Democrats have blamed the party’s support of defunding the police as one of the reasons the DNC’s blue wave flopped as nothing more than a ripple.

Black Lives Matter leaders have responded to the criticisms of the defund the police movement by castigating Democrats who are not fully supporting the far-left policy.

During a DNC conference call earlier this month, some Democrats allegedly lambasted the party’s embrace of progressive ideas.

If the Democrats “are going to run on Medicare for All, defund the police, socialized medicine, we’re not going to win,” House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) reportedly said on the call.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) blasted fellow Democrats for espousing a far-left agenda.

“We need to be pretty clear, it was a failure. It was not a success,” Spanberger allegedly said during the call. “We lost incredible members of Congress.

“We have to commit to not saying the words ‘defund the police’ ever again,” she reportedly declared. “We need to not ever use the words socialist or socialism ever again. It does matter, and we have lost good members because of that.”

In another conference call this month, Rep. Vincente Gonzalez (D-Texas) allegedly said, “Defund police, open borders, socialism — it’s killing us. I had to fight to explain all that.”

Black Lives Matter activists across the country are incensed that some Democrats have abandoned the defund the police movement. In a report from Politico, numerous Black Lives Matter activists slammed Democratic politicians who jumped from the anti-law enforcement position.

“A half-dozen Black Lives Matter leaders said in interviews that they felt disrespected and frustrated by the debate over the slogan ‘defund the police,’ instead of the fundamental policy pushed by protesters for systemic changes to policing,” the Politico report stated.

The BLM leaders are now considering “counteroffensives to push back on the criticism,” and an “official rebuttal” on the controversial defund the police strategy.

“There needs to be a response,” said Cliff Albright, co-founder of the group Black Voters Matter. “We got to control the narrative because it’ll become a narrative that keeps us from being able to move further and faster on these issues.”

DeRay Mckesson, co-founder of the police reform organization Campaign Zero, said criticism of “defund the police” is a “smoke screen.”

“If people are confused about something, part of our responsibility is to make people less confused — forget the [Democratic] Party,” Mckesson said.

Rashad Robinson, president of the nonprofit civil rights group Color of Change, which is a partner organization in the Black Lives Matter movement, said he has “not seen the data sets to support” the idea of the defunding the police messaging causing the unforeseen losses in the House and Senate in the 2020 election.

“Which means that it’s reflective because it’s always easier to blame Black people,” Robinson added.

Domingo Garcia, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), disagreed with the notion that defund the police strategy didn’t scare away voters.

“It went from Hillary to Trump. Why? Because the issues of law and order are impacting Latinos quite a bit,” Garcia told NPR. “For example, a lot of the border patrol, law enforcement are heavily Latino in the Rio Grande Valley. So when you are talking about defunding the police, and you don’t stand up to those types of rhetoric, then it leaves an opening for Republicans to come in and take advantage of that.”

The US Military Buys Commercial Location Data

Vice has a long article about how the US military buys commercial location data worldwide.

The U.S. military is buying the granular movement data of people around the world, harvested from innocuous-seeming apps, Motherboard has learned. The most popular app among a group Motherboard analyzed connected to this sort of data sale is a Muslim prayer and Quran app that has more than 98 million downloads worldwide. Others include a Muslim dating app, a popular Craigslist app, an app for following storms, and a “level” app that can be used to help, for example, install shelves in a bedroom.

This isn’t new, this isn’t just data of non-US citizens, and this isn’t the US military. We have lots of instances where the government buys data that it cannot legally collect itself.

Some app developers Motherboard spoke to were not aware who their users’ location data ends up with, and even if a user examines an app’s privacy policy, they may not ultimately realize how many different industries, companies, or government agencies are buying some of their most sensitive data. U.S. law enforcement purchase of such information has raised questions about authorities buying their way to location data that may ordinarily require a warrant to access. But the USSOCOM contract and additional reporting is the first evidence that U.S. location data purchases have extended from law enforcement to military agencies.

Big Brother border patrol cellphone data mining Conspiracy Fact and Theory Headline News Homes Intelwars Law Enforcement Phones Police State ruling class spying trace Track Warrant

The Border Patrol Is Monitoring Millions Of Americans’ Cellphones Inside Their Homes

This article was originally published by Mass Private I at Activist Post. 

The Feds are using the pandemic as an excuse to ID and track millions of innocent Americans’ cellphones inside their homes.

This past August, a Motherboard article revealed the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) had signed a $476,000 contract with Venntel, a cellphone data mining corporation.

Motherboard went on to explain why the Feds signing a contract with Venntel is so troubling.

The news highlights how law enforcement agencies continue to buy data that may in some cases require a warrant or court order to obtain.

What Motherboard is saying is that the CBP is using Venntel to monitor Americans’ cellphones without a warrant.

“This new contract raises even more concerns about the cozy and ongoing relationship between the federal government and these data brokers, which operate in the shadows and can amass mountains of sensitive personal data without any restrictions,” Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, and Chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform said.

What makes this even more disconcerting is how law enforcement can use Venntel to monitor every cellphone in a ‘certain house.’

If you search a certain house, you’re only going to get three or four different signals out of there. I think from that standpoint, you could definitely try and identify specific people, the first [Venntel] source said. I think that was part of the goal in using it for government customers and things like that, is that you’re able to identify devices, and then you can do device searches to see where else they might have been, they added. A second person who has worked with the company [Venntel] said the data in a geofenced area is not going to contain 100 percent of devices in that location, and that identifying someone would be laborious.

Five U.S. senators were so horrified about law enforcement secretly monitoring millions of innocent Americans’ cellphones that they sent a letter to the CBP demanding an explanation.

As revealed by public contracts, CBP has paid a government contractor named Venntel nearly half a million dollars for access to a commercial database containing location data mined from applications on millions of Americans’ mobile phones. CBP officials also confirmed the agency’s warrantless tracking of phones in the United States using Venntel’s product in a September 16, 2020 call with Senate staff.

The letter asked what legal analysis did the Feds use to justify creating a national cellphone location tracking program?

.The senators also requested the inspector general investigate any legal analysis CBP’s lawyers performed before the agency started to use this surveillance tool and how CBP was able to begin operational use of Venntel’s location database without the DHS Privacy Office first publishing a Privacy Impact Assessment.

It is hard to imagine a more invasive national public surveillance program than what the CBP is conducting right now under our very noses.

The Feds don’t care if we know that they are secretly spying on our cellphones inside our homes

A recent Vice article revealed that the CBP is refusing to justify to Congress how it is legal to ID and spy on Americans’ cellphones inside their homes without a warrant.

“CBP officials confirmed to Senate staff that the agency is using Venntel’s location database to search for information collected from phones in the United States without any kind of court order,” the letter signed by Wyden and Warren, and addressed to the DHS OIG, reads. “CBP outrageously asserted that its legal analysis is privileged and therefore does not have to be shared with Congress. We disagree.”

As the Vice article pointed out, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is also using Venntel’s data to ID and monitor Americans’ cellphones without a warrant.

Allegedly, the CBP and the IRS cannot tell what nationality a particular person is based only on the information provided by Venntel, but they can track a particular person’s movements throughout the country.

The CBP’s admission that it is not restricting its personnel to only use Venntel near the border sends an unmistakable message to Americans everywhere: law enforcement treats everyone like a suspected criminal.

There simply is no justification for a so-called democratic country treating millions of its citizens like suspected criminals. Our country is on the precipice of becoming a full-blown surveillance state.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Dylan Stevens election Elizabeth Neumann Emergency Preparedness Gear Headline News Intelwars Law Enforcement lifestyle industry militarized police militia plandemic Preparedness Roman Zrazhevskiy scamdemic something is wrong tactical apparel Violence Virus

Americans Are Stocking Up On Military Gear Before The Election

Americans by and large on all sides feel like something is brewing over the upcoming election. Many of them are stocking up on military gear in advance to prepare for the already promised violence that’s coming down the pike regardless of who is selected to “win” in a mere 9 days.

Conflict is already on America’s streets in 2020, and “tactical apparel” has become a lifestyle industry serving militarized law-enforcement agents and the freelance gunmen who emulate them. Less than two weeks before Election Day, orders are rolling in as the public attempts to ensure they are protected from the violence, according to a report by Fortune

“It doesn’t matter who gets elected,” founder Roman Zrazhevskiy said of his new customers. “They think that no matter who wins, Biden or Trump, there are going to be people who are upset about the result.” This is exactly how the ruling class is going to play this. They have already planned this out.

“It’s evidence of what many people have been expressing concern about for the last six months — the stress associated with the pandemic, a frustration or anger about various government mitigation efforts and a belief that those efforts are infringing on their individual liberties,” said Elizabeth Neumann, a former assistant secretary for threat prevention at the Department of Homeland Security.

“We’ve seen a large increase [of participation in militia groups] since April — it’s only getting bigger,” said Josh Ellis, owner of MyMilitia.com, which allows users to find groups near them. The fastest-growing, four-month-old Angry Viking, has signed up 1,500 members and has “thousands” waiting to join, according to leader Dylan Stevens, a 41-year-old from Houston who was a personal trainer until Covid-19 hit.

This election has been promised to be violent. The best way to prepare is to stay out of any melee to the best of your ability.  Personally, I have no intention of going anywhere in the days leading up to or after the election. Be safe, be prepared, and this might be a food time to practice the “ray man” skill.

IMSI-Catchers from Canada

Gizmodo is reporting that Harris Corp. is no longer selling Stingray IMSI-catchers (and, presumably, its follow-on models Hailstorm and Crossbow) to local governments:

L3Harris Technologies, formerly known as the Harris Corporation, notified police agencies last year that it planned to discontinue sales of its surveillance boxes at the local level, according to government records. Additionally, the company would no longer offer access to software upgrades or replacement parts, effectively slapping an expiration date on boxes currently in use. Any advancements in cellular technology, such as the rollout of 5G networks in most major U.S. cities, would render them obsolete.

The article goes on to talk about replacement surveillance systems from the Canadian company Octasic.

Octasic’s Nyxcell V800 can target most modern phones while maintaining the ability to capture older GSM devices. Florida’s state police agency described the device, made for in-vehicle use, as capable of targeting eight frequency bands including GSM (2G), CDMA2000 (3G), and LTE (4G).

[…]

A 2018 patent assigned to Octasic claims that Nyxcell forces a connection with nearby mobile devices when its signal is stronger than the nearest legitimate cellular tower. Once connected, Nyxcell prompts devices to divulge information about its signal strength relative to nearby cell towers. These reported signal strengths (intra-frequency measurement reports) are then used to triangulate the position of a phone.

Octasic appears to lean heavily on the work of Indian engineers and scientists overseas. A self-published biography of the company notes that while the company is headquartered in Montreal, it has “R&D facilities in India,” as well as a “worldwide sales support network.” Nyxcell’s website, which is only a single page requesting contact information, does not mention Octasic by name. Gizmodo was, however, able to recover domain records identifying Octasic as the owner.

New Report on Police Decryption Capabilities

There is a new report on police decryption capabilities: specifically, mobile device forensic tools (MDFTs). Short summary: it’s not just the FBI that can do it.

This report documents the widespread adoption of MDFTs by law enforcement in the United States. Based on 110 public records requests to state and local law enforcement agencies across the country, our research documents more than 2,000 agencies that have purchased these tools, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We found that state and local law enforcement agencies have performed hundreds of thousands of cellphone extractions since 2015, often without a warrant. To our knowledge, this is the first time that such records have been widely disclosed.

Lots of details in the report. And in this news article:

At least 49 of the 50 largest U.S. police departments have the tools, according to the records, as do the police and sheriffs in small towns and counties across the country, including Buckeye, Ariz.; Shaker Heights, Ohio; and Walla Walla, Wash. And local law enforcement agencies that don’t have such tools can often send a locked phone to a state or federal crime lab that does.

[…]

The tools mostly come from Grayshift, an Atlanta company co-founded by a former Apple engineer, and Cellebrite, an Israeli unit of Japan’s Sun Corporation. Their flagship tools cost roughly $9,000 to $18,000, plus $3,500 to $15,000 in annual licensing fees, according to invoices obtained by Upturn.

Border Security criminal aliens ICE Illegal Immigration Immigration and Customs Enforcement Intelwars Law Enforcement

ICE arrests 170 criminal aliens in sanctuary cities

Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday announced the arrest of more than 170 criminal illegal aliens in sanctuary city jurisdictions throughout the United States.

ICE authorities arrested criminal aliens in Seattle, Denver, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., in a targeted enforcement operation that began on Oct. 3 and ended Oct. 9. According to a press release from ICE, the law enforcement actions were directed at illegal aliens who were arrested for crimes and had immigration detainers but were nevertheless released by state or local law enforcement agencies. ICE said more than 80% of those arrested had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges at the time of their arrest.

“Last fiscal year, 86 percent of people arrested by ICE had criminal convictions or pending charges. ICE focuses its resources on those who pose the greatest threat to public safety. The men and women of ICE put their lives on the line every day to keep these individuals off the streets,” acting DHS Secretary Chad F. Wolf said. “The Department will continue to carry out lawful enforcement actions in order to keep our communities safe, regardless of whether or not we have cooperation from state and local officials. Politics will not come before safety when enforcing the law and keeping our citizens safe.”

The ICE statement notes that in the New York City area alone, authorities arrested nearly 50 illegal aliens with histories of crime including sexual assault, sex crime, assault, robbery, larceny, family neglect, and DUI.

Among those arrested include a 29-year-old Mexican citizen who was convicted in 2018 of illegally re-entering the United States and convicted in October 2020 on charges of menacing-real/simulated weapon, child abuse, and violation of bail bond conditions; a 64-year-old Panamanian citizen convicted in 2010 of sexual conduct against a child in the 2nd degree; a 61-year-old citizen of Peru convicted in 2016 of a criminal sex act in the 3rd degree involving a victim younger than 17 years old; and a 25-year-old Guatemalan citizen arrested for commercial sex abuse of a minor in February 2019 who had previously been removed from the United States in 2013 and illegally re-entered the country.

This operation follows the arrest of 128 at-large illegal aliens last week in sanctuary city jurisdictions in California.

“ICE continues to protect communities by taking criminal aliens off the streets regardless of any locality’s cooperation policies – which is part of our Congressionally mandated mission,” ICE senior official Tony H. Pham said. “Officers and agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are sworn federal law enforcement officers who enforce U.S. immigration laws created by Congress to keep this country safe.”

Crime FBI Governor whitmer Insurrection Intelwars Law Enforcement Michigan militia

Federal authorities arrest six men in alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

Federal authorities have arrested six men in connection with what they say was a conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

The conspiracy was a described by the FBI as a plot to violently overthrow the state government in Michigan, WITI-TV reported. The investigation into this conspiracy involved multiple informants and undercover FBI agents.

Documents filed in court Thursday allege that six men — Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta — plotted to kidnap the governor.

According to the FBI, Croft, Fox, and about 13 other men met in Dublin, Ohio, on June 6 to form a self-sufficient society that would be based on the U.S. Bill of Rights. They allegedly discussed plans to achieve this aim violently.

“Several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor,” an FBI agent wrote in the court affidavit. “The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message.”

Fox allegedly reached out to a Michigan-based militia group to recruit men to attack the state Capitol building and take hostages, including the governor.

“Fox said he needed ‘200 men’ to storm the Capitol building in Lansing, Michigan, and take hostages, including the Governor. Fox explained they would try the Governor of Michigan for ‘treason,’ and he said they would execute the plan before the November 2020 elections,” the FBI said.

NBC News reported that the involvement of that militia in the plot to kidnap the governor “appears to be minimal as the group charged today allegedly discussed keeping the broader militia out of their plan.”

More from WITI:

According to the FBI, it learned of the plan through confidential sources and undercover agents over several months who attended militia group meetings. The FBI said the militia group would hold field training exercises on private property in remote areas of Michigan, where they would engage in firearm training and tactical drills.

At one point, the FBI said the group had a meeting in Grand Rapids in the basement of a shop that was accessed through a trap door hidden under a rug on the main floor. At that business, the FBI said they discussed the plan for the Capitol and planned to use “Molotov cocktails” to destroy police cars.

The FBI said Fox called Whitmer a “tyrant b****” and asked the group to be linked with other systems and asked for ideas of what they can do.

The militia group also met in Ohio and Wisconsin, the FBI reported,
and on July 11 in Wisconsin, Croft and another member tried to make an
improvised explosive device using black powder, balloons, a fuse, and
BBs for shrapnel.

The FBI said they have recordings of conversations discussing plans to attack a Michigan State Police facility and to shoot up Whitmer’s vacation home. In one of these recordings, Fox allegedly said the best plan was to “kidnap her outside her vacation home.”

“Snatch and grab, man. Grab the f***in’ governor. Just grab the bitch. Because at that point, we do that, dude — it’s over,” Fox allegedly said, according to the FBI.

The FBI said in late August the alleged conspirators took pictures and video of Whitmer’s vacation home and researched how far the police were from its location. A few weeks later in mid-September, the group allegedly created and detonated an IED surrounded by human silhouette targets and planned to put a similar device under an overpass to divert police while they kidnapped the governor.

The FBI said Fox told one of their sources he had purchased an 800,000-volt taser to use in the kidnapping. In conversation with an undercover officer, the group determined it would cost about $4,000 to get the explosives they allegedly intended to use for the IED and made plans to raise the funds over the next few weeks.

Agenda 21 arrest prevented beast system dictates Headline News Humanity Intelwars Jeff Berwick Law Enforcement leave the system no face mask woman saved no masters no slaves Police State stand together stand up stop tyranny stop using their currency the ruling class the solution tyranny Waking Up

This Is How We Beat This Beast System: What Unity Looks Like

People want solutions to the tyranny and beast system being shoved down our throats, and even though it’s simple (stop believing others have the right to rule you) they need real-world examples of what that would look like. Well, here’s one.

Citizens in Spain united together to stop the Spanish police from arresting a woman who refused to wear a face mask. The entire exchange was caught on video. The people banded together and literally stood up to the governments’ enforcers and prevented the police from arresting the woman.

The clip shows officers attempting to pull the older woman away from the crowd, but the crowd still manages to wrestle her away from the cops, writes Paul Joseph Watson on Summit News.

“In Spain, police tried to arrest a woman for not wearing a mask. Dozens of people took off their masks and then helped the woman,” states the description accompanying the video.

This is a perfect example of how we beat this system and take it down. People need to stop just watching the tyranny around them and actually stand up for their fellow human beings. We are all being enslaved at a rapid pace and if we cannot figure it out it will be permanent enslavement.

This will immediately end when we all respond this way. When we decide to come to the aid of those who are being forcibly terrorized, we will be able to rise above these monsters violently pushing the dictates of the ruling class on us.

Tyranny Ends When We Say It Does, and The Time Is NOW!

If we cannot wake up to what’s being done to us, put politics aside (because it’s all just theater anyway), stop believing in the illusion of rulers and government, we will end up in a prison for our minds that will rival George Orwell’s 1984.  That is not an exaggeration either and if you’ve been paying attention, you know that.

Are Directed Energy Weapons Starting Fires In California and Oregon!?

Jeff Berwick also explains in his most recent video the simple solution. Because the “ramifications of what’s going on are unquantifiable,” it’s hard to predict what will happen. explains Berwick.  But we have a choice. We wake up, realize no one has the right to rule us, steal from us, or force us to use their money, or we don’t. We are far past the stage of a “gray area” small government situation. We are either free, or slaves, and it’s us who will make that decision. If you do not wish to watch the entire almost 33-minute video, go to 11:40 to hear his take:

“You don’t need to protest the Federal Reserve,” Berwick explains. “Really, humanity needs to wake up a little bit and stop using [the Federal Reserve’s] currency, dollars or pesos or whatever, and start using cryptocurrencies. By doing that, if enough people did it, it would just get rid of the central banks all on its own.” That’s a very simple solution, but understandably, most grocery stores don’t normally take Bitcoin, so it could present some difficulties.

“A lot of people just need to wake up,” Berwick reiterates.  “Just move away from all their systems. Stop obeying the authority. Stop using their currencies. And very quickly, we can get rid of a lot of the problems.” It really is simple, but people do need to realize that they are hopelessly dependent on the system and the false left-right paradigm before we can evolve as a human race and be free instead of slaves.

The good news is that “a lot of people are starting to wake up.” People are slowly beginning to realize that no one has a higher claim over their life and property than they do. Once there are enough people who realize that reality, it’s over for anyone wanting to control anyone else.

“People are waking up to the fact that the government is not their friend,” says Berwick. And he’s right.  Left, right, or anything in between.  Once power is given it is never ceded willingly.

Intelwars Jacob blake shooting Kenosha Law Enforcement Police Tony evers Wisconsin

Wisconsin gov criticizes police over shooting despite admitting ‘we do not have all the details’

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, seemingly criticized law enforcement Sunday following an incident in which a Kenosha police officer shot an unarmed black man, Jacob Blake, seven times.

The incident, which happened Sunday evening and was captured on video, sparked protests and riots in the southern Wisconsin city.

What did Evers say?

Despite acknowledging that “we do not have all the details yet,” Evers still criticized law enforcement.

“Jacob Blake was shot in the back multiple times, in broad daylight, in Kenosha,” Evers began. “While we do not have all the details yet, what we know for certain is he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or in our country.”

The governor went on to say:

We stand with all those who have and continue to demand justice, equality and accountability for Black lives in our country — lives like those of George Floyd, of Breonna Taylor, Tony Robinson, Denise Hamilton, Earnest Lacy, and Sylville Smith. And we stand against excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black Wisconsinites.

I have said all along that although we must offer our empathy, equally important is our action. In the coming days, we will demand just that of elected officials in our state who have failed to recognize the racism in our state and our country for far too long.

What happened with Blake?

Video of the incident shows several police officers surrounding Blake. The police were allegedly called to the scene in response to a domestic incident, WLS-TV reported. Witnesses said Blake had broken up a fight.

The video shows that Blake walked around a parked SUV as several police officers pointed their firearms at him. Blake then reached inside the vehicle. What followed were seven audible shots; it’s not clear whether only one of the police officers opened fire or multiple officers discharged their weapons.

When the gunfire happen, the video clearly shows that Blake’s back was facing the officers. An attorney representing Blake’s family said Blake’s three young sons were inside the vehicle when police shot him, CNN reported.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting.

Blake did not die from his injuries; he was rushed to a Milwaukee hospital, where he remains in serious condition.

billboard Intelwars Law Enforcement Police Sioux city

South Dakota citizens launch billboard campaign supporting law enforcement

A group of citizens in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has purchased ad space on billboards in the city to show their support for the men and women in blue, in an effort to push back against the attacks on the law enforcement community amid nationwide anti-police protests.

What are the details?

The Argus Leader reported the campaign was launched by Kirby Proehl, who decided to buy two billboards at the beginning of the effort. But when word got out, money started pouring in.

“What compels me, and so many others working with me, is to say thank you to the overwhelming amount of ethical law enforcement out there, at a time when they need to hear it most,” Proehl told the newspaper. “Police have a very difficult job. In the current environment, they have nearly an impossible job.

“So, let’s offer some humanity when it seems to be in limited supply today because I believe it to be contagious,” he added. “And if law enforcement feels the compassion, I assure you that they will spread it too when they are out protecting our community.”

The quiet effort started by Proehl has spread. Another member of his group, Rob Thurston, explained that their goal for the campaign “is extremely large.”

They want to see other communities in the Midwest join them in sending the simple message displayed on billboards in their city: “THANK YOU LAW ENFORCEMENT. Paid for by your law abiding citizens.”

Anything else?

The effort in Sioux Falls comes after weeks of protests in the U.S. sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody. The movement has spurred a push by activists calling for the “defunding of police.”

Riots have also devolved into vandalism during several demonstrations, often leaving behind anti-police graffiti in their wake. Several police officers have also been killed in the violence.

The backlash against police is taking its toll. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms (D) told CNN that she believes morale in her city’s police department is down “tenfold,” and the outlet reported that one Los Angeles Police Department supervisor told them morale in his department “is the worse he’s seen it since the aftermath of the 1992 riots.”

Anti-cop movement cops Defund the police Intelwars Law Enforcement NYPD Police

NYPD sees ‘exodus’ after spike in uniformed cops retiring since George Floyd protests

Following weeks of anti-cop rhetoric after the death of George Floyd, the “defund the police” movement gaining popularity nationwide, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) declaring that he will be shifting funds away from the NYPD, it appears that some law enforcement in the Big Apple have had it with the treatment they have received in the past month.

The New York Police Department announced that 272 uniformed officers have filed for retirement in the time since George Floyd’s death on May 25 until June 23. Compared to the same period in 2019, this year is seeing a 49% increase, according to the New York Post.

Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said that NYPD cops are “at their breaking point, whether they have 20 years on the job or only two.”

“We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?'” Lynch told the Post. “And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

“We are worried about a surge in attrition reducing our headcount beyond what we can sustain without new recruits, and are afraid the City Council has not taken the surge into account,” a source told the Post.

Mayor de Blasio said he was “committed to moving resources from the NYPD to youth and social services.” The Democratic mayor said New Yorkers “need to be reached, not policed.”

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, said an “exodus” has begun and nearly 80 of his members have recently filed for retirement, and that morale is “at the lowest levels I’ve seen in 38 years.”

“People have had enough and no longer feel it’s worth risking their personal well-being for a thankless position,” Mullins stated. “There is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies. Department brass is paralyzed (and) too afraid to uphold their sworn oath in fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”

Between May 28 and June 11, more than 350 NYPD officers were injured in the police brutality and Black Lives Matter protests that have turned violent at times.

Earlier this month, at least seven Minneapolis Police Department employees quit their law enforcement jobs. The MPD cops left their positions because they were frustrated with the way the police department and city leaders failed to support them following the George Floyd protests.

The entire SWAT team of the Hallandale Beach Police Department in Florida resigned three weeks ago after their police chief kneeled with protesters.

VIDEO: Protesters request police presence for ‘defund the police’ rally, citing their safety

Over the weekend, a video of a police officer went viral. In that video, an unidentified police officer explains that he was called to provide security for protesters.

The irony, the officer explained, is that the protesters requested police presence for a…wait for it…”defund the police” rally.

“So I come in this morning and we’re informed there’s gonna be a protest to ‘defund the police.’ Well, that’s fine, I like protests,” the officer explained.

“Except they requested a police presence, you know, for their safety, at the ‘defund the police’ event,” he continued. “I s**t you not.”

It was not clear where the officer worked, as he had removed his badge from his uniform, presumably so that his location could not be identified.

Three police officers were fired from the police department in Wilmington, North Carolina, after a video audit of their patrol cars found them making racist statements to each other.

Police Chief Donny Williams released details of the exchanges to the media in a briefing on Wednesday.

“When I first learned of these conversations, I was shocked, saddened and disgusted,” Williams said. “There is no place for this behavior in our agency or our city and it will not be tolerated.”

According to The Charlotte Observer, the police officers were recorded lamenting that the department only cared about kneeling with protesters. Then they used racial and homophobic epithets to express their anger.

Later in one recording an officer is heard saying that he thinks a civil war is coming and he is ready for it.

“We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them [expletive] Blacks. I can’t wait. God, I can’t wait.”

He then added that a civil war was needed to “wipe them off the (expletive) map. That’ll put them back about four or five generations.”

Williams said the officers did not deny that it was their voices on the recordings, nor did they deny making the ugly comments. But they explained that the comments were made as a result of extreme stress from the protests over the death of George Floyd.

The district attorney’s office will review cases involving the officers to find whether they committed crimes or were biased against the suspects in those cases.

Here’s the video of the media briefing:

Police officer goes viral for praying before his shift

An Oklahoma police officer is going viral on the internet after his fiancée shared a photo of him praying before his shift.

What are the details?

In a widely shared Facebook post, social media user Karmen Nalley said that her betrothed, Ty Hignite, prays nightly ahead of his scheduled watch.

Nalley shared a photo of Hignite kneeling before a vehicle, his head bowed and his hands clasped in front of him.

“I snuck this picture as Ty was leaving for work. He prays every night before he leaves for his shift and I think this photo exemplifies exactly who he is as a person,” Nalley wrote.

“Ty is brave, strong, loving, kind, patient, and so much more,” she continued. “I have a prayer that I say as well, and it always begins and ends with asking God to keep him safe.”

She added, “It is a scary world we live in now, I am not ignorant to that. I wish more people could know Ty and I wish ALL cops were like him. If EVERYONE were as kind hearted as Ty, the world would be a better place.”

At the time of this writing, Nalley’s post has received more than 400 likes.

LAPD investigating defense lawyer over social media posts calling for blacks to murder police

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating social media posts from a criminal defense lawyer who advocated for black people to murder police officers.

KTTV-TV in Los Angeles obtained screenshots of the posts attributed to San Gabriel criminal defense attorney Mark McBride on Instagram.

“It won’t stop until black people start murdering cops, which they should do often and with great relish. These ****sucking, low IQ, can’t get into law school jarheads need an asphalt nap, during which they’re bleeding out on the street where they’re shot down. I would have no problem with them,” the comment read.

“I would absolutely 100% defend to the death of any African American who picked off a cop or two. It’s time, it’s well past time,” the comment continued.

McBride allegedly posted another incendiary comment in a different post.

“It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve defended ‘terrorists’, sign me up pro bono for somebodies granddad putting a couple of hollow points between the eyes of these PTSD addled rednecks, I’d take one or two pro bono,” the comment read.

‘Disheartening and disgusting’

An LAPD union representative excoriated the comments.

“When we first saw the comments it was disgust, it was anger,” said Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz, vice president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League. “There are so many good police officers in this country and to be painted with a broad brush and then threatened with bodily harm, just for wearing a uniform, it’s disheartening and disgusting.”

When KTTV Fox 11 attempted to obtain a comment from McBride about the comments, he refused, but did not deny that he had authored them.

The LAPD told Fox 11 that the comments were extremely disturbing and said an investigation was underway.

Here’s more about the investigation:

chicago civil unrest crack down on peaceful protests Derek Broze Derrick Broze Donald Trump escalation General William Walker gun turrets mounted Headline News heaily armed soldiers helicopter Humvees injured Intelwars Law Enforcement Mark Esper Martial Law military forec National Guard Pentagon police brutality Police State protesters disappearing Protests Safe troops Violence Washington D.C.

Helicopters and Military Humvees With Mounted Gun Turrets Deployed for Protests In D.C.

This article was originally published by Aaron Kesel at Activist Post. 

We have seen a lot of police brutality and crazy rioting over the past week. As a sign of potential escalation, video has emerged of Humvees with machine gun turrets mounted on the top driving down the streets of DC, while a black red cross medical helicopter was used by the National Guard to show force against protesters at the capitol. And if that’s not enough, there is news of protesters disappearing in Chicago.

U.S. President Trump vowed to use force against protesters and to deploy the U.S. military to DC, the nation’s capital. He also expressed he would do the same elsewhere if the protests didn’t die down and rioters didn’t stop the vandalism and looting that occurred in some places. Trump also said he had dispatched “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” to Washington, D.C.

A former Marine, Luke Thomas, commented on the video asking “Why HMMWV’s rolling through DC city streets with their gun turrets mounted?”

Although we can speculate what’s going on here with these Humvees and the horrible things they could be used for, it’s best to instead deal with the facts as they stand.

The Associated Press reports that approximately 200 active-duty troops that were brought in to help if needed with the civil unrest in the nation’s capital will return to their home base. However, we have no way of knowing whether or not these troops returning home are the same that were seen driving down D.C. streets with turrets attached to their Humvees.

The official who spoke on condition of anonymity to the Associated Press, also noted that there were a total of 1,300 troops in the capitol region early this week as protests turned violent. Protests became violent in the aftermath of the death in Minnesota of a black man, George Floyd, who died after a white police officer pressed his knee to Floyd’s neck for several minutes causing asphyxiation.

If Humvees with mounted turrets weren’t enough to wet your police state whistle, a medical military helicopter was used to disperse protesters in D.C. as well, while the police on the ground kettled them and beat them. Even a CNN journalist was beaten up by brutal riot cops. This all showcases that our First Amendment right to peaceful assembly is being threatened in many cases.

The incident occurred on Monday night after protesters failed to disperse during the curfew at the capitol at 7 p.m. EST. The helicopter flew low to the ground and was positioned just above those violating the curfew. The chopper sent gusts of dust and trash into the air near the demonstrators seen in the video below.

Since the event, it was announced today that the District of Columbia National Guard launched an investigation into the low-flying maneuver by one of its helicopters over protesters, CBS reported.

“I hold all members of the District of Columbia National Guard to the highest of standards,” Major General William Walker said in a statement Wednesday. “We live and work in the district, and we are dedicated to the service of our nation.”

Thus far there has been no investigation announced for why U.S. military was driving around Humvees with gun turrets still attached to the top.

It was also just reported by the Associated Press that the previous call by the Pentagon to have some of the troops return to the home base has now been abruptly reversed by Defense Secretary Mark Esper in what they are calling a “dynamic situation.” Shortly after, buses arrived with military personnel:

If all of that wasn’t bizarre enough, Chicago is being accused of “disappearing protesters,” Vice reported. Chicago, Illinois is the same state that had a CIA-like black site torture prison at Homan Square. This is the same black site that The Anti-Media previously reported had detained thousands of Americans illegally. With that said, are they back to being operational? It seems very strange that protesters are vanishing again in Chicago.

What does all this highlight? As Jeremiah Mostelle wrote for the Charles Koch Institute, “the increased use of military equipment has coincided with an increased use of military tactics, such as SWAT teams and no-knock raids.”

As a result of all these actions and the various videos being seen online of police using excessive force against innocent unarmed protesters, we can surely expect massive lawsuits, maybe even class-action lawsuits to commence.

Activist Post colleague Derrick Broze, in fact, was among those arrested last night in Houston while he was covering the protest as media. He stated that he will be fighting the charges. In the video below, Derrick provides more details of the arrest and the police behavior that he witnessed.

Five Solutions You Won’t Hear from Politicians on How to End Police Violence Now

This article was originally published by Matt Agorist at The Free Thought Project.

Since the George Floyd protests began last week, they have since morphed into a much broader movement which is now exposing a problem this country has suffered from for a long time. The system of law enforcement in this country has morphed into a militarized standing army, preying on the poor, and rife with corruption. Naturally, people are pissed.

As we have stated from the beginning of the riots, this reaction was inevitable. Minorities and the poor have been pushed into a corner and ignored as the state preyed on them through a system of extortion and violence. One can only be ignored for so long before they eventually lash out.

Remember when football players were peacefully protesting by taking a knee, and the country — including the Commander in Chief — collectively lost their minds telling them to shut up and sit down? Trump even called for them to be fired for this. Now, because these folks were ignored and told to shut up during their peaceful protests, the inevitable non-peaceful protests have begun.

For decades there has been a perfect storm brewing in this country as minorities and poor people have their doors kicked in and are terrorized by cops during botched raids for substances deemed illegal by the state and watch helplessly as their family members die in video after video at the hands of cops. Now, we have record unemployment, lockdowns, cops murdering people on video and facing no immediate charges, and those in charge sit at the top and point fingers.

Because the system will always refuse to accept responsibility for the situation it has forced onto the people, the blame game always comes next. Instead of realizing the error of their ways, government is now blaming the riots on Antifa, White Nationalists, the Alt right, “thugs,” and any other scapegoat they can find to blame besides taking responsibility. They are even blaming Russia now. You cannot make this up.

Naturally, this will never lead to any positive change. It will only prolong suffering, create more divide, and perpetuate a system of injustice for decades to come. Those who want to incite peaceful change, however, have been pushing these ideas out for a long time. Now, people may finally listen.

To lower the likelihood of future chaos, America’s system of law enforcement needs radical change. Instead of threatening to execute suspected looters with no due process — the discussion we should be having right now is how to fix this broken system. It is not difficult, it is based in logic and reason, and its effects would be significantly felt almost overnight.

Over the years, TFTP has been proposing these solutions, and below we have compiled a list of five main actions that could affect this much-needed change, right now.

The first and most significant solution to this pain and suffering would be to end the war on drugs — today. Legalize every substance out there. 

Richard Nixon, in his effort to silence black people and antiwar activists, brought the War on Drugs into full force in 1973. He then signed Reorganization Plan No. 2, which established the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Over the course of five decades, this senseless war has waged on. At a cost of over $1 trillion — ruining and ending countless lives in the process — America’s drug war failed, miserably, and has created a drug problem that is worse now than ever before.

This is no coincidence.

For years, those of us who’ve been paying attention have seen who profits from this inhumane war — the police state and cartels.

The reason why the drug war actually creates a drug and violence problem is simple. And those who profit most from the drug war — drug war enforcers and cartels — all know it. When the government makes certain substances illegal, it does not remove the demand. Instead, the state creates crime by pushing the sale and control of these substances into the illegal black markets. All the while, demand remains constant.

We can look at the prohibition of alcohol and the subsequent mafia crime wave that ensued as a result as an example. The year 1930, at the peak of prohibition, happened to be the deadliest year for police in American history. 300 police officers were killed, and innumerable poor people slaughtered as the state cracked down on drinkers.

Outlawing substances does not work.

Criminal gangs form to protect sales territory and supply lines. They then monopolize the control of the constant demand. Their entire operation is dependent upon police arresting people for drugs because this grants them a monopoly on their sale.

It is incredibly racist too. The illegality of drug possession and use is what keeps the low-level users and dealers in and out of the court systems, and most of these people are poor black men. As Dr. Ron Paul has pointed out, black people are more likely to receive a harsher punishment for the same drug crime as a white person.

This revolving door of creating and processing criminals fosters the phenomenon known as Recidivism. Recidivism is a fundamental concept of criminal justice that shows the tendency of those who are processed into the system and the likelihood of future criminal behavior.

The War on Drugs takes good people and turns them into criminals every single minute of every single day. The system is set up in such a way that it fans the flames of violent crime by essentially building a factory that turns out violent criminals.

It also creates unnecessary police interactions — disproportionately carried out on black people — which leads to resentment, harassment, civil rights violations, and even death. When drugs are legal, there are far fewer doors to kick in, fines to collect, profit prisons to fill, and money to steal.

Secondly, we need to end qualified immunity for police. 

When it comes to police accountability, one overarching question remains. ‘Do we want to live in a society whereby law enforcement officials can completely violate a person’s constitutional rights and get away with it?’ For our society to be free, the answer to that question must be a resounding, powerful, unwavering, ‘Hell No!’

Unfortunately, however, this is the case most of the time thanks to law enforcement personnel’s use and abuse of Qualified Immunity.

For those who may be unaware, qualified immunity is a legal doctrine in United States federal law that shields government officials from being sued for discretionary actions performed within their official capacity, unless their actions violated “clearly established” federal law or constitutional rights.

The Supreme Court created qualified immunity in 1982. With that novel invention, the court granted all government officials immunity for violating constitutional and civil rights unless the victims of those violations can show that the rights were “clearly established.”

As Anya Bidwell points out, although innocuous sounding, the clearly established test is a legal obstacle nearly impossible to overcome. It requires a victim to identify an earlier decision by the Supreme Court, or a federal appeals court in the same jurisdiction holding that precisely the same conduct under the same circumstances is illegal or unconstitutional. If none exists, the official is immune. Whether the official’s actions are unconstitutional, intentional or malicious is irrelevant to the test.

An example of this would be the family of George Floyd attempting to seek compensation for his death. Because there has never been a “clearly established” case of a cop kneeling on a man’s neck until he dies being declared unconstitutional, a judge in Minnesota could easily dismiss their case.

It is essentially a get out of jail free card for cops and it perpetuates the problem of police violence by giving bad cops a free pass.

After removing a cop’s ability to trample rights without consequence, it is time to hold them liable. That’s where personal liability insurance comes in.

As the Free Thought Project has reported extensively, police officers, even when found at fault for their abusive actions, are almost never held personally liable. It is the taxpayers who foot the bill. However, all that can change overnight by requiring cops to carry personal liability insurance.

Imagine, for a moment, the result of all police officers being held personally liable for their actions and forced to pay their victims. In nearly every other profession on the planet, if someone hurts someone else while on the job, they are held liable — personally. Why can’t cops carry personal liability insurance just like doctors?

As instances of police brutality and police killings continue to be exposed, there is no doubt that the US is in dire need of reform. The simple requirement for police to be insured for personal liability is an easy fix — especially to remove repeat offenders from the force.

All too often, when a tragic death such as George Floyd occurs, later — as was the case with Derek Chauvin — we find out that the officer should have never been given a badge and a gun in the first place because of their past. However, insurance companies, who can’t fleece the taxpayers to pay for problem cops, would have to come out of pocket to pay for them and would make sure that these officers are uninsurable.

If the officer becomes uninsurable, the officer becomes unhirable — simple as that.

There are likely many cops out there right now who would be denied insurance coverage by any company, due to their track records. A requirement for personal liability insurance would, quite literally, weed out problem officers — almost overnight.

The fourth solution to preventing police brutality and violence would be to bring predatory policing to a halt. 

All too often we hear the ridiculous statement from the police apologist crowd saying, “If you don’t break the law, you have nothing to worry about.”

However, that statement couldn’t be further from the truth.

Former NSA official William Binney sums this myth up quite accurately, “The problem is, if they think they’re not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does.”

Attorney Harvey Silverglate argues that the average American commits three felonies a day without even knowing it. Most of these crimes have no victim either — like possessing marijuana, driving a car with dark windows, or a burned-out license plate light.

While most everyone in America commits these same infractions designed for revenue collection instead of safety, most of the people targeted by police for these crimes are the poor, minorities, and the mentally ill.

As the 2014 death of Mike Brown in Ferguson exposed, in 2013, African-Americans accounted for 86 percent of traffic stops while making up only 63 percent of Ferguson’s population.

For those too poor to pay their tickets, routine traffic stops in Ferguson ended up in repeated imprisonment due to mounting fines. Ferguson was running a de facto debtors’ prison.

Revenue collection, persecution of the poor, and debtor’s prisons take place in every county, in every city, across every state. This institutionalized cruelty is little more than a day’s work for the millions of bureaucrats involved in the racket.

Sadly, until this system of wealth extraction is defunded or brought to a halt through radical policy changes, cases of cops preying on the poor will continue at an ever-increasing rate until the whole country is one big prison — or, burned to the ground.

Lastly, we should end the monopoly that American police have on law enforcement. 

Simply put, police officers can be corrupt, kill with impunity, and are rarely held accountable because Americans have no other choice. We are stuck with them. In any other job market on the planet, if they had a death toll of 1,000 Americans a year, they would be out of business overnight. However, because cops have a monopoly on law enforcement in America, the death toll keeps rising.

By allowing competition in law enforcement, the incentives for policing would drastically shift. Violent police departments would be fired and replaced with less violent ones. Cops would have an incentive to serve their communities by solving real crimes like rape and murder instead of kidnapping and caging people for victimless crimes.

If this sounds like a pipe dream to you, then you’ve probably never heard of Dale Brown.

Dale Brown of Detroit’s “threat management center” has shown that crime can be stopped and lives can be saved by independent people using nonlethal tactics.

In areas of Detroit where police don’t answer 911 calls, Dale Brown took matters into his own hands and started taking those calls himself, and because Dale was not “above the law” as police officers claim to be, he had to solve these crimes without hurting people, because he would actually be held accountable for his actions.

Yes, businesses pay for these services. However, as a side effect of providing businesses with security, Dale has also been able to provide service in poor neighborhoods for free, by financing his business through providing security for high-income areas.

Instead of policing from a place of fear, self-preservation, and extortion, Brown polices through love. He offers of some timeless advice that we could all use right now. “The cornerstone for protection is love, not violence, not guns, not laws, you cannot truly protect anything that you do not love.”

George Floyd Had COVID-19 in April & Killer Cop’s Neighbors Thought He Was A Real Estate Agent

To anyone who has been paying attention, this shouldn’t come as a shock.  Mainstream media outlets are now reporting that George Floyd had COVID-19. He apparently tested positive back in April.

According to a report by the New York Post, Dr. Andrew Baker, the chief medical examiner at Hennepin County said that the coronavirus was not a factor in Floyd’s death. (Obviously. We saw it.  It was murder.) “Since … positivity for [COVID-19] can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent … positivity from previous infection,” Baker wrote in the report, which was released Wednesday with the permission of Floyd family.

The full 20-page report maintains that Floyd’s death was a homicide and that he died when his heart stopped while officer Derek Chauvin compressed his neck in the widely viewed video of his arrest.

Floyd’s family had conducted an independent autopsy that was released this week and it claimed the cause of death was different. But it was still homicide. Floyd’s death was caused by asphyxia from both neck and back compression due to the weight fellow officer Thomas Lane pressed on his abdomen.

The medical examiner’s office’s findings included “other significant conditions” of Floyd’s such as heart disease, fentanyl intoxication, and recent methamphetamine use. These details were released in the initial report that angered Floyd’s family attorney, Benjamin Crump. Crump said the inclusion of those conditions, which were not ruled to be a factor in his death in either autopsy, was an attempt to assassinate Floyd’s character ahead of the officers’ trials.

As far as the “killer cop” goes, his neighbors had no idea he was even a cop. They thought he was a real estate agent.

How interesting that the mainstream media is leaving this part out. Perhaps it was all just a psyop.  Perhaps it was to incite violence and bring in the troops fro martial law. Many Americans are now seeing “wartime” military in their hometowns under President Donald Trump.

It’s also the police that have supplied the rioters with bricks.  There’s a lot of people still siding with the government and looking for ruler to dictate their lives, but it’s time to wake up.  You are being played. We all are.  You can hate the messenger all you want, but it doesn’t change what’s happening.

The coronavirus lost it’s fear factor when people started to wake up to what the government was doing and the ruling class needed a different crisis.  They couldn’t get martial law after they impoverished the masses, so on to the next crisis.  It’s probably going to be one thing after another now until we either wake up and break free or end up in chains we’ll never get out of.

There are also people being paid to disrupt peaceful protests. George Soros has paid agitators for years. This isn’t new information. The mainstream media is desperately trying to keep ahold of the official narrative on this crisis too. We have to start lifting the veil and looking beyond. We’ve been conditioned our whole life to not question “authority” and they are telling us not to now.  Or what? They’ll label you a “conspiracy theorist” and “antisemitic.” 

You can argue about the definitions of words all you want. But their structure remains the same. The word “government” can be split into two words: 1. (guvernare) meaning “to control” and 2. (mens or mentis) meaning “mind.” SO GOVERNMENT MEANS “TO CONTROL THE MIND.” Arguing about how much control others should have over our minds is not a solution. The solution is to start thinking for yourself and stop letting them control you.

Pay attention and stop allowing the media and the government to tell you what to think. Look into things and figure out the difference between right and wrong on your own.

Evil fallen people freedom George floyd government agents Headline News Humanity Intelwars Law Enforcement looting Martial Law Nightmare police brutality Rioting SLAVERY United States Violence

Hear The Tale Of A Fallen People Destined To Wander Their Broken Land

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog.

America is falling, is falling, and violence covers the land like a flood.  Let us cry for this once great land because a day of reckoning is at hand.  As I was reflecting on the nightmarish events of the past several days, a line from a song from one of my favorite bands of all-time kept coming to mind, and I have made that line the title of this article.

We are truly a fallen people, and we definitely live in a broken land.  The death of George Floyd is evidence of how far we have fallen, the police brutality that has gone on for way too many years is evidence of how far we have fallen, and the out of control rioting and looting that we have been witnessing day after day is evidence of how far we have fallen.  Of course, the truth is that just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine has been exploding in our society in recent years, and the American people just keep going back for more.  We have had an insatiable appetite for wickedness, and now we are reaping what we have sown.

Do you think that it is just a coincidence that so many of our young people are completely and utterly lawless?  We raised them in a completely upside-down society that says that good is evil and evil is good, and so the way that they are behaving now shouldn’t surprise us at all.

If our young people truly wanted to honor George Floyd, looting retail stores is definitely not the way to do it.  Sadly, many are taking advantage of this crisis to go on a crime spree, and we are witnessing looting on a scale that is unlike anything we have ever seen before in this country.

For example, one of the most famous retail stores in the heart of New York City was absolutely mobbed by looters on Monday night…

Disturbing footage shows swarms of looters rushing into one of the world’s most famous stores — Macy’s flagship on Herald Square — as Midtown descended into chaos overnight.

One overhead video showed looters racing into one of the boarded-up entrances shortly before the curfew started Monday night — with only a small unexplained explosion seeming to halt the rush.

There has been a tremendous amount of looting on the west coast as well, and a video that showed a wild mob voraciously looting an Amazon delivery truck made headlines all over the globe

While looters targeted various clothing stores in Santa Monica, one onlooker posted a video to social media showing a group of people breaking into an Amazon van, throwing objects at the vehicle to break its windows before gathering in the back as a larger group of people appeared to run away with packages.

What in the world has happened to us?

I have been asking that question a lot lately.

To me, it is absolutely unthinkable that looters would be allowed to loot a store for 15 hours straight, but that is precisely what just happened at a ShopRite location in Philadelphia

The owner of a West Philadelphia ShopRite says looters ravaged his store for 15 hours straight, taking whatever they wanted from the pharmacy, liquor department and cash register. Owner Jeff Brown says looters ransacked the ShopRite of Parkside and several other businesses at the ParkWest Town Center on 52nd Street over the weekend.

Many of the businesses were already on financially shaky ground after weeks of COVID-19 closures. They’re now left cleaning up massive damage.

Where else in the entire world would such a thing be permitted to happen?

Once upon a time we thought of ourselves as a shining example for the rest of the planet, but now the only example we are setting is a bad one.

One of the things that has been particularly alarming to me is the amount of violence that we are seeing directed toward police officers.  In St. Louis, four officers were shot by rioters last night alone

Four police officers were shot in downtown St. Louis early Tuesday as a day of peaceful protests turned into a violent and destructive night in the city.

Hundreds of people had gathered across the St. Louis region Monday to protest the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

And in Las Vegas, one police officer is fighting for his life after being shot in the head

In a night of deadly violence aimed at police officers, a cop in Las Vegas was shot in the head and is now on life support.

Despite George Floyd’s own family calling for an end to violence, multiple cities were again hit by mayhem last night.

A suspect was taken into custody after an LVMPD officer was shot in the head near Circus Circus late last night.

Being a police officer in this environment is one of the hardest jobs in America.

And things are not going to get any easier in the days ahead.

So many of these young people have hearts that have gone completely ice cold, and they don’t seem to have respect for even the most basic human values.  A perfect example of what I am talking about just took place in Richmond, Virginia

The chief of the Richmond, Virginia, police department said Sunday that rioters set fire to a multi-family home with a child inside while blocking access for firefighters to get through to save the child.

“One incident that is particularly poignant, that truly illustrates the seriousness of the issues we’re facing,” Chief Will Smith told reporters. “Protesters intentionally set fire to an occupied building on [West] Broad Street. This is not the only occupied building that has been set fire to in the last two days.”

When I use the word “evil” to describe such people, I am not exaggerating one bit.

Unfortunately, many Americans are still in denial about how badly our society has decayed.

Did you know that there are people that actually write to me to tell me that my articles are “too negative” because I report about such things?

I suppose that we could all stick our heads in the sand and pretend that everything is going to be just fine somehow, but that wouldn’t do anyone any good at all.

What we desperately need to do is to fundamentally change course as a nation and start focusing on solutions that will give us real hope.  With that in mind, let me try to end this article on a positive note.  The title of this article was taken from a song entitled “Morningstar” by a band called Whiteheart, and the following are the full lyrics to that song…

Hear the tale of a fallen people
Destined to wander their broken land
Their eyes are vacant,
Full of empty meaning
What they’re missing they just don’t understand

Beyond the dark horizon
Out where the people are crying
A Morningstar will be rising
Rising to show us the way

Long ago a secret treasure was given
To change the heart
Of every woman and man
But somehow the treasure
Was forgotten
It lies buried underneath
The shifting sand

Beyond the dark horizon
Out where the people are crying
A Morningstar will be rising
Rising up with the bright
Dawn of healing
Rising up to show us the way

Our eyes are not seeing
Our hearts are not feeling
We want to believe…

Activists Apple app Apps Arrests Contact tracing control enslavement Google app Headline News Intelwars John Harrington Law Enforcement LIES Martial Law mass surveillance National Guard Orwellian power power over people propaganda Protesters Secret Internet Protocol Router SLAVERY unite warnings

Police Use Contact Tracing And Big Tech To Identify Protesters

EDITOR’S NOTE: Well who could have guessed that the government would ever use the plandemic’s “contact tracing” to mass surveil the public?

This article was originally published by Mass Private I at Activist Post. 

Countless warnings about how law enforcement could use contact tracing apps to monitor people have gone unheeded. As BGR.com revealed, police are using contact tracing to identify protesters’ affiliations.

According to Minnesota Public Safety Commissioner John Harringon, officials there have been using what they describe, without going into much detail, as contact-tracing in order to build out a picture of protestor affiliations — a process that officials in the state say has led them to conclude that much of the protest activity there is being fueled by people from outside coming in.

A Twitter feed titled “Minnesota Contact Tracing” revealed how police are using contact tracing to identify and arrest protesters. “Minnesota Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington says they’ve begun contact tracing arrestees.” 

Recently, 100 human rights groups warned that an Apple/Google contact tracing app could be used as a cover to identify activists and minorities.

An increase in state digital surveillance powers, such as obtaining access to mobile phone location data, threatens privacy, freedom of expression and freedom of association, in ways that could violate rights and degrade trust in public authorities—undermining the effectiveness of any public health response. Such measures also pose a risk of discrimination and may disproportionately harm already marginalized communities.

So despite all assurances to the contrary, it appears that 100 human rights groups were right; law enforcement can and will use contact tracing to identify protesters.

As NBC News noted, contact tracers also use geofencing to help identify protesters.

“Geofencing” captures the social media posts of people entering a specific area. The technology locates any cellphones that cross into the area by locking onto their geolocation systems, and then records social media posts and sometimes other data from the phones.

Time exposed how the military (National Guard) uses a classified system called “Secret Internet Protocol Router” or SIPR to monitor protesters. (To learn about Perspecta Inc.’s role click here & here.)

Big Tech’s hands are dirty with federal money paying for new ways to monitor Americans.

A recent Business Insider article describes how police use Big Tech to monitor activists and protesters the moment they walk out their door.

Law enforcement agencies have made full use of high-tech surveillance tools as protests sweep the country following the death of George Floyd. A predator drone operated by Customs and Border Patrol circled above protesters in Minneapolis.

Buzzfeed News warns,

law enforcement has a wide breadth of surveillance technologies that could be used to monitor and target protesters — including controversial facial recognition software Clearview AI, license plate readers, body cameras, and video analysis tools.

Both of these articles reveal a frightening array of Big Tech surveillance devices being used by police nationwide.

Minneapolis police and the Minnesota Fusion Center are also using Clearview AI, BriefCam, Ring doorbell cameras, Axon police body cameras, ShotSpotter, and license plate readers to create an intimate view of people’s lives.

BuzzFeed’s article also revealed how police use Arxys “Milestone” software which uses video detection and analytics to identify people.

The Minneapolis Police Department said in a surveillance white paper that it uses Arxys [Milestone] software — a video management tool that claims to offer “video motion detection” and “video analytics” — to analyze CCTV footage.

While both articles do a great job of revealing some of the ways law enforcement can monitor anyone, it really did not go into detail about how invasive Big Tech’s surveillance devices truly are.

Let’s say you use your smartphone for everything; texts, phone calls, pictures, music, etc. — if you also use Alexa or a NEST thermostat or any smart device in your home, these devices collect, store and transmit all that personal data, which police can use to identify a person. Police can also identify people who use a tablet or laptop because like a phone they have an IP and MAC address.

If you use any of these devices to make online purchases, police can ask those companies to provide details of what you bought and when. Anytime you use a credit/debit or customer rewards card, someone is compiling a database of everything you purchased.

Let’s say you drive or take public transit, police can track your vehicle and they can use facial recognition to identify where you work or which bus or train stops you use.

If you drive or take an Uber or Lyft, chances are your personal information is being recorded and used to build a massive database of your comings and goings. From the moment you step outside of your home, your neighbor’s Ring doorbell or Flock cameras have identified you, your family, and your vehicle.

And if they are any social distance snitches in your neighborhood, they have recorded you and reported you to police via Ring Neighbors or Nextdoor.

Thanks to Big Tech, a person’s everyday life is no longer private. Now everything we do is being recorded in real-time. Things like what and where you eat, who your friends and family members are, who your family doctor is or where you worship are all available to law enforcement.

Despite what Big tech, politicians, and law enforcement say, AI and smart devices are being used to identify activists and protesters.

abolish slavery American soil boots cops culling the herd elitists enforced tyranny freedom Future Headline News human beings humanity's future Intelwars killing Law Enforcement liberty LIES lincoln memorial Mainstream media Martial Law moral culpability peace political parasite power President Donald Trump propaganda Protesters ruling class SLAVERY slaves Soldiers submission taxation is theft two options tyranny United States wake up WHITE HOUSE

Military Show of Force at Lincoln Memorial: Soldiers & Cops are Enforcing Tyranny

At the commands of the ruling class government, the police and military have decided to force tyranny and enslavement on the rest of us.  There has been little to no dissent from the order followers of the state, which doesn’t bode well for our future.

It seemed like we were making progress with waking up the masses.  However, there’s still a lot of people willing to enslave their fellow human beings on command. Soldiers and police are still only human beings, and as such bear moral culpability for the orders they follow.  As humans, they still have free will like the rest of us, and we need to make sure they understand that they are no better than the Gestapo at this point.

David Icke To LEOs & Military: “Look Your Children In The Eye” & Tell Them YOU Enforced Tyranny

A military show of force on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington caused a social-media uproar Tuesday night, and rightfully so. On American soil, the troops people have been stolen from for over a century to fund are now being used to make sure we submit to enslavement.

It’s time to open your eyes and look at whose boots are on your face.  The United States government is terrorizing the public and the military, made up of simple humans like the rest of us, are going along with it.  Don’t worry though. They are collecting a paycheck while a good number of Americans are out of work thanks to the government’s response to the plandemic.

The show of force came after President Donald Trump on Tuesday again urged governors to call in National Guard troops to quell nationwide protests that have often turned violent, after threatening Monday night to deploy military forces. On Monday, federal police aggressively cleared a peaceful crowd of protesters in front of the White House, so Trump could have a photo op at an historic church across the street, a move condemned Tuesday by many congressional Democrats but few Republicans. –Market Watch

We have to wake people up to what’s going on, or this will be the end of humanity.  We will all be slaves to be treated as the ruling class sees fit. If you thought we were nothing more than cattle before, brace yourself. It’s going to get a lot worse.  There are only two options and I’ve said this before. One, submission to enslavement and forever loss freedom to the point that humans will never even know what the word means.  Two, learn and wake up to the fact that no human should ever have power over any other human for any reason. That’s slavery. We will either be free, and the ruling class will be eliminated, or we will be slaves.  There are no other options. We cannot reform the government.  Any time power is given it will be abused.  That has been proven throughout history.

Jeff Berwick mentions these two options at the end of his most recent video (30:45). Which one would you prefer? You can’t be a slave and also be free.

Personally, I see a bright future. But it all depends on how many people wake up and stop letting other human beings enslave them. We are still a ways off from it, but it’s within our reach.

abolish government battle for your mind brainwashing break free Bricks chaos Curfew don't comply don't play Donald Trump elitists end their game free your minds freedom governments Headline News Humanity Intelwars Law Enforcement liberty lockdowns Mainstream media Martial Law modus operandi plandemic Police Protection provoking people ruling class scamdemic Self Reliance Self-ownership SLAVERY staged events stand up Violence wake up

No One Is Talking About The Plandemic Anymore

Instead of focusing on the tyranny of the lockdowns due to the scamdemic, people are focused on dividing themselves once again because the ruling class and mainstream media told them to. The modus operandi of governments and their mainstream media is lies, fear, and chaos.

Just like that, people forgot that the government scammed them out of their freedom and livelihoods using fear and a plandemic. No one is talking about this anymore. No one is talking about how the people who spent their lives in servitude to the state and voting for the master of their choice were destroyed by the very people they are loyal to.

Now that same government has been tellin you who to hate, who to fear, when to ignite chaos, and what everything means. Even those who KNOW the mainstream media (the liars for the ruling class) is using propaganda to bring to fruition all of the world’s elitists’ agendas at once, people are still falling for it. They need you to believe that you need them. They need you to believe that without their enslavement, you wouldn’t be able to live.  That’s the furthest thing fro the truth.  Because we don’t need them.  They need us.

The government and it’s “enforcers” the police are staging this entire event. Go to 9:45 in the video below to see who is responsible for the pallets of bricks just randomly laid out in all major cities. They WANT people to get violent so they can swoop in with martial law and put the chains around your neck permanently.

We can all live our lives outside of slavery and that’s what the ruling class (governments, elitists, mainstream media) hope you never realize. We will not have a world to leave to our children if we cannot move past allowing others to control and manipulate our minds.

Isn’t it fascinating how almost no one is talking about the scamdemic anymore? They are playing us.  It’s time to end their game by refusing to play. Get things sorted out in your own head and stop falling for their brainwashing. Use critical thinking and do some research.

This is what the ruling class elitists and their hired goons do. They need chaos in order to get people on board with their own enslavement. Again, stop falling for this!

We are running out of time. This is humanity’s last chance to stop the enslavement of mankind.

“This is mostly caused because of the idea of statism,” says Jeff Berwick. “This idea that you have this giant tyrannical authoritarian government with tons of guns, and they enforce whatever laws they want…but the police don’t protect you. They extort you and kidnap you and kill you.” It’s time to take care of yourself and stop relying on the ruling class. Become more self-sufficient, and take your power back. Break free and never let anyone control you or your loved ones again.
