atlanta Colorado denver Georgia Georgia election law Governor brian kemp Intelwars major league baseball Mlb all-star game

MLB reportedly moves All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado, a state with similar voter ID laws

Major League Baseball has apparently found itself in the exact “tricky” spot reporters and critics predicted the league would end up in after pulling the 2021 All-Star Game out of Georgia in protest of the state’s new voter ID laws.

According to a report from the Associated Press, MLB will relocate the All-Star Game to Denver’s Coors Field — a move that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) blasted as hypocritical because Colorado has similar and arguably more restrictive voting laws than Georgia.

Last Friday, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred issued a statement declaring that MLB “fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions at the ballot box.”

MLB’s statement came after Kemp signed into law sweeping election reforms that, among other changes, would require absentee ballots to be verified with photo ID. Critics accused Georgia Republicans of attempting to suppress the minority vote in the state, despite the fact that the new Georgia law expands early voting for primary and general elections.

Several other falsehoods were told about the law, including by President Joe Biden, who falsely claimed the law would suppress the votes of working people and said he would “strongly support” MLB moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

Manfred said Friday “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft.”

The only problem with relocating the game to Denver is, as Gov. Kemp pointed out during an interview on Fox News Tuesday, Colorado has very similar voter ID laws to Georgia.

“Georgia has 17 days of in-person early voting including two optional Sundays, Colorado has 15,” Kemp said. “So what I’m being told, they also have a photo ID requirement. So it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.”

Kemp also criticized the president for appearing at the NCAA championship game in Indiana, given Biden’s comments, because Indiana was “the birthplace for the photo ID requirement.”

“So hypocritical,” said Kemp.

Watch:

Colorado law requires voters to show some form of non-photo identification when voting in person at the ballot box. “All voters who vote at the polls must provide identification. If you are voting by mail for the first time, you may also need to provide a photocopy of your identification when you return your mail ballot,” the Colorado secretary of state’s website explains.

Acceptable forms of identification include a valid Colorado’s driver’s license or valid ID card issued by the Department of Revenue, a valid U.S. passport, a copy of a recent utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or other government documents.

When voting absentee in Colorado, voters only need to provide identification for the first time they cast an absentee ballot. The state uses signature matching to verify a voter’s absentee ballots in subsequent elections.

The new Georgia law requires identification for in-person and all absentee voting. Georgia voters without ID can use the last four digits of their Social Security number, a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government documents (similar to Colorado) as acceptable forms of ID, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office told Fox News.

In addition to appearing hypocritical, MLB’s decision may have a disproportionate effect on minority-owned businesses in Atlanta, which will lose revenues from the All-Star Game to Denver, Colorado. The 2019 All-Star Game in Cleveland, Ohio, generated an estimated $65 million in local economic activity. Nearly 30% of the businesses in Atlanta are black-owned, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Census data reported by Fox News indicates Atlanta is 51% black, while Denver is 76% white.

A Georgia tourism official told CNN on Friday that MLB’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia could have a $100 million economic impact on the state.

Baseball’s 91st Midsummer Classic is scheduled on Tuesday, July 13, at the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field.

Boeing 777 Colorado denver FAA Intelwars ntsb united airlines

Frightening video shows airplane engine on fire after pilot declares ‘MAYDAY’ just minutes into flight

A United Airlines flight bound for Honolulu was forced to make an emergency landing on Saturday after the Boeing 777-200 plane experienced a massive engine failure just minutes into flight.

Video of the exploded engine went viral on social media, as did pictures that showed pieces from that engine land in residential areas near Denver, Colorado.

What are the details?

Just minutes after departing Denver International Airport, the pilot of United Airlines flight 328 sent a distressed “MAYDAY” call over air traffic control communications to report “an engine failure,” and request an immediate return to the airport.

Video of the exploded right-wing engine, with missing pieces and on fire while still in the air, quickly went viral on social media.

Barbara Underwood, a Hawaii resident, told Hawaii News Now that she saw the moment the engine exploded.

“I looked out the window and I saw the engine,” she said. “I noticed it was just shaking a lot. And I thought, well, it’s the turbulence.”

“And then as I was looking at it, it just blew fire. And that ring thing around it just flew off and then it was just smoking. And I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, I don’t know what’s going to happen next,'” she explained.

Shockingly, Underwood said many passengers were unaware of what had happened.

“I was on the window on the right side, and nobody saw it except the people that were on the window and nobody screamed. And like I looked over and people were still reading their books. They kind of didn’t know what was going on,” Underwood told Hawaii News Now.

Pictures showing debris from that exploded jet engine also circulated on social media. The debris fell over Broomfield, a suburb of Denver.

Kieran Cain told NBC News he was playing basketball with his kids in Broomfield when he witnessed the debris rain from the sky.

“We heard a gigantic boom and, as we did that, we saw a huge puff of smoke and then stuff started falling out of the sky,” he said. “That’s when I called 911.”

Did the plane land safely?

Fortunately, the plane was able to land without further complications. The plane was carrying 231 passengers and 10 crew members.

There were no injuries.

The National Transportation Safety Board will lead the investigation into the incident, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

Colorado denver Illegal Immigration immigration Intelwars Joe Biden Sanctuary City

Immigrants ‘facing deportation’ explain they’re very excited about a Biden presidency

Illegal immigrants who live in Denver, Colorado, and are facing deportation explained recently why they’re hopeful about the prospect of Joe Biden being president.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Denver County is a sanctuary county, meaning, the county does “not honor ICE detainer unless accompanied by a criminal warrant or some other form that gives legal authority to hold the individual.” The county implemented the policy in April 2014.

What did the immigrants say?

KCNC-TV spoke with several illegal immigrants who have found sanctuary in the Denver-area. According to the network, the immigrants they spoke to are “facing deportation.”

One illegal immigrant, who has lived “in sanctuary” for two years at the First Unitarian Church in Denver, told KCNC she hopes Biden changes the immigration system for the benefit all illegal immigrants.

“My hope is this new president create change in the immigration system,” Jeannette, who is facing deportation back to Mexico, said. “Yeah, my hope is it’s about time, not just for me but for more than 11 million people.”

Another immigrant, Ingrid, lives in sanctuary at the Unitarian Universalist Church. She has reportedly been living in sanctuary the last four years over fears of being deported back to Peru. She told KCNC that Biden gives her hope of immigration reform in which she and other illegal immigrants no longer have to depend on sanctuary policies.

“Yes we have more hope with this president, Joe Biden. With this administration we tried but had a lot of doors closed,” she said.

What is Biden’s immigration policy?

The illegal immigrants who spoke with KCNC have good reason to be hopeful about a Biden presidency.

Biden’s immigration policy, as stated on his campaign website, is centered on reversing President Donald Trump’s. “Trump has waged an unrelenting assault on our values and our history as a nation of immigrants. It’s wrong, and it stops when Joe Biden is elected president,” Biden’s campaign website states.

In fact, within the first 100 days of his administration, Biden vows to “immediately reverse the Trump Administration’s cruel and senseless policies that separate parents from their children at our border” and “end Trump’s detrimental asylum policies,” among other initiatives.

Biden also plans to give illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

“Biden will immediately begin working with Congress to modernize our system, with a priority on keeping families together by providing a roadmap to citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants,” Biden’s campaign website states.

“Biden will aggressively advocate for legislation that creates a clear roadmap to legal status and citizenship for unauthorized immigrants who register, are up-to-date on their taxes, and have passed a background check,” it adds.

Arrests ballots control counting crash the system democracy is a scam denver Denver Police Donald Trump elections are selections elitists Emergency Preparedness enslavement Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Martial Law militarized police New World Order pepper balls Police State portland Riots Scam system voting doesn't matter

Martial Law Alert: Denver & Portland Declared “Riots,” National Guard Called In!

Things are going exactly how the elitists and the ruling class want them to. These riots will only worsen as the system drags out this vote and this is by design.

The secret election model predicted this scenario of chaos.  The elitists wanted chaos that will result in martial law, and they’ve got it. Out of this, will spring the New World Order regardless of who is chosen to “win” this election.

National Guard Put On Standby For The Coming Preplanned Chaos

Caravans of Denver police officers have deployed pepper balls and clashed with protesters who started a fire at the intersection of Washington and Colfax, according to FOX 31. FOX 31‘s Gergory Nieto added that a “handful of arrests” have reportedly been made. The protesters, who claim to be anti-fascist, carried a banner which read “Death to Fascism and the Liberalism that enables it” and were heard chanting “No Borders. No walls. No USA at all,” according to a video shared by the Daily Caller.

Police also shared photos of items that had been allegedly seized from protesters in Portland, Oregon, which include commercial-grade fireworks, hammers, and spray paint.

Racism is Dead! Racist Elk Statue Burns In Portland, Oregon

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office announced that the National Guard has been deployed by Governor Kate Brown to respond to acts of violence as well as “maintain public order and ensure community safety.”

“Guard members are trained in crowd control and will be riding with local response teams. They are dressed in military-style garb, which is their uniform,” the Sheriff’s office said. “Oregon National Guard members are civilian community members helping to protect us. We don’t take this decision lightly.” This is an effort to desensitize the public to martial law. Remember who will be rolling out the coronavirus vaccine?

Trump: “The Military Is Ready To Deliver A Vaccine”

Protesters took to the streets in Seattle on Wednesday as well, as people demanded that every vote in Tuesday’s election be counted. Hundreds were protesting in both cities against President Donald Trump’s court challenges to stop the vote count in battleground states.

The promised election violence is here and the longer this election is dragged out, the worse this is likely to get. We all knew this was coming. Brace yourself, stay aware, stay alert, and stay prepared.

Antifa BLM denver Denver communists Denver shooting Intelwars John tiegen Patriot muster Patriot rally

1 dead, 2 in custody after fatal shooting in Denver near ‘Patriot Rally’ and BLM-Antifa counter-protest

Two suspects were taken into custody by police on Saturday afternoon after a person was shot and killed in downtown Denver.

An event dubbed the “Patriot Muster” rally organized by John “Tig” Tiegen was held at 2 p.m. at Denver’s Civic Center Park. “It’s time we let these communist socialists know we have had enough,” a description of the event read. “Fight back, push back. Time to take our country back!”

Once the Denver Communists organization caught wind of the rally, they scheduled a counter-protest called the “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive.”

“We scheduled our action after learning that the militia-fascists had called a ‘patriot muster’ against the Black Lives Matter movement, anti-fascists and Marxists,” a spokesperson for Denver Communists said. “That’s us — guilty as charged and happy to oblige with our presence.”

“The plan is to set up our tables and tents in Civic Center Park, as near as we can be to the fascists,” Denver Communists said. “We’ll have soup for our family, music, speakers, communist books, and plenty of angry anti-fascist chants.”

KUSA reporter Marc Sallinger was covering the rally and the counter-protest.

“Hello from downtown Denver where far-right militia groups are holding a rally,” Sallinger wrote on Twitter. “Far-left Black Lives Matter Antifa groups are holding a counter protest nearby.”

Police separated the two opposing groups with fences.

At 5:48 p.m. EST, Denver Police’s official Twitter account wrote: “Officers are investigating a shooting that occurred in the Courtyard by the Art Museum.” The police said the shooting victim was transported to the hospital.

The Denver Police shared updates that two suspects were in custody, and that the shooting was “now being investigated as a Homicide.”

“A man participating in what was billed as a ‘Patriot Rally’ that also included a presence of self-described BLM-Antifa protesters, sprayed mace at another man and that man shot him with a handgun,” The Denver Post reported.

Video from the area shows an orange cloud of smoke or vapor followed by the sound of a gunshot. Footage shows Denver Police rush to the scene with guns drawn, then order two men to the ground, including a man dressed in all black with a handgun. Meanwhile, the victim lay motionless on the ground.

(CAUTION: Graphic video)

A man dressed in black appears to be walking away from the crime scene and yelling, “One less white f****** supremacist, right in the f****** dome!”

Another video features a person screaming, “Die fascist scum!”

Earlier in the day, rival protesters got in each others face. There were also agitators dressed in all black burning a thin blue line flag in front of Denver Police.

At one point, men dressed in all black with umbrellas scream at police for speaking to an older woman. The woman instructs everyone to “relax.”

Arrests Breonna taylor cops denver Headline News Intelwars Los Angeles Louisville Mainstream media Murder no know warrant NWO Oakland Police propaganda

Media Declares “Violence Is Inevitable” As 2 Cops Shot In Louisville; Reporters Arrested In Aggressive Police Crackdown

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

As we reported last night, protesters hit the streets in Louisville, NYC, LA, Denver, Oakland, Washington DC, and other cities across the US after a Kentucky grand jury decided that no officers would be charged in the killing of Breonna Taylor, a tragic accident that was the result of officers serving a “no-knock” warrant.

In Louisville, the city where Taylor was shot and killed, 2 police were shot as gunfire broke out downtown after hundreds “peacefully” marched earlier in the evening. But as has become distressingly familiar, the real hard-core agitators came out after dark. A suspect in the shooting of the two officers was taken into custody shortly after, but he wasn’t the only “protester” who was packing heat at the “non-violent demonstration.”

Amazingly, left-leaning media outlets had the gall to frame the shooting of two police as an “inevitable”, while framing the events of last night in distorted terms that served to support their narrative of a corrupt justice system absolving three murderers, instead of reporting the facts: that a jury of their peers – not some unassailable magistrate – decided on the indictments for the three officers.

The Daily Beast reported that none of the officers were charged for Breonna Taylor’s killing. While that’s technically true – officer Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing into a nearby occupied apartment, not for the shots that killed Taylor, which were fired by a colleague – the result is misleading, and intentionally so, we suspect.

But we digress. Circling back to the events of Wednesday night, the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department – better known as the LMPD – aggressively enforced curfew violations after the shooting. Several reporters – including two journalists for the Daily Caller – were arrested during the sweep, and despite protests from their editors, were charged with breaking curfew and attending an “unlawful” assembly. It’s believed that dozens of protesters and reporters were taken into custody during the sweep of Jefferson Square, which has served as the base for BLM protesters who have been out demonstrating every night for the past 118 days.

As far as violence goes, this video has gone viral after being shared by several mainstream media outlets.

The DC reporters arrested included Jorge Ventura and Shelby Talcott.

When editors reached out, the department refused to budge.

Circling back to the wounded officers, Interim LMPD chief Robert Schroeder confirmed the two officers had been shot and sustained life-threatened injuries, and that a suspect was in custody. One of the officers was shot in the abdomen, while the the other was shot in the thigh.

“I am very concerned about the safety of our officers,” Schroeder said. “Obviously we’ve had two officers shot tonight, and that is very serious. … I think the safety of our officers and the community we serve is of the utmost importance,” Schroeder said, according to the Courier-Journal.

As of 11 pm local time on Thursday, police had arrested 46 people, which includes those arrested in the sweep of Jefferson Square, which reportedly happened around 8 pm.

Independent video journalist Brendan Gutenschwager narrowly avoided arrest last night. Afterward, he chronicled the eerily silent streets and surveyed the damage.

Thousands gathered across NYC and LA, and hundreds more in Portland, Chicago, Atlanta, and other cities around the country as others marched “in solidarity”.

Expect the unrest to continue Thursday, as it has for nearly 120 days.

Activists Block denver Evictions Intelwars protest

Activists block entry to Denver municipal building in effort to stop landlords from filing evictions

Organized activist groups held a demonstration in front of a municipal building in Denver, Colorado, on Thursday, linking arms and blocking the entrance in an effort to keep landlords from entering to file eviction notices.

What are the details?

Anti-police group Afro Liberation Front organized the event dubbed #CancelEvictionsNow, sending a message online telling followers, “join us during business hours to ensure no landlord passes our line.” The group also advocates for abolishing the police and providing housing for all.

Protesters began arriving at the targeted Webb Municipal Office Building in the morning, promising to stay all day. Fellow progressive group Wall of Moms Denver also promoted the event online, tweeting, “We have a wall blocking one entrance. The more people that show up, the more entrances @AfroFrontCo can block to #StopEvictions.”

Wall of Moms called on people to “come say hi and make some #GoodTrouble.”

Denver Post reporter Sam Tabachnik was at the scene, and reported that a group of around 25 “activists linked arms to form a human chain” in front of the building.

Tabachnik wrote:

After police told activists they couldn’t block the doors, people sat in a line in front of the building. But police soon told them that was also not allowed. Some 20 officers in SWAT gear and two officers on horses arrived, informing protesters they had three minutes to disperse or they would be subject to arrest.

Evictions resumed July 1 in Colorado after Gov. Jared Polis (D) lifted the moratorium he put in place in March as unemployment spiked due to the coronavirus crisis. However, the governor’s executive order requires that landlords “provide tenants with thirty (30) days’ notice of any default before initiating or filing action for forcible entry and detainer.”

Advocacy groups fear the timing means those eviction notices will start rolling in, reflecting months of backlog. The COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project estimates that between 300,000 and 400,000 Coloradans could face eviction and end up out on the streets.

Last week, a spokesman for the Denver Sheriff Department said the department has not yet seen the wave of evictions some expected. “We anticipate a large influx, but that has not surfaced,” Maj. Lanceford Alexander told KNCN-TV.

Alexander explained that serving an eviction notice is always a difficult task, and especially so amid the economic hardships caused by the pandemic. “The people who are being evicted are going through a crisis,” he told the outlet. “Deputies show up on scene, they talk to them, they offer resources. They try to be as professional as they can to be sure they’re still being treated with dignity and respect.”

Animal Cruelty Couple shoots dog denver Denver colorado Denver dog killing Dog shot and killed dogs Intelwars

Police are looking for a couple caught on surveillance video shooting and killing a dog in broad daylight

Police in Lakewood, Colorado, are seeking a couple who were caught on surveillance shooting and killing a dog in broad daylight.

The disquieting incident occurred on Saturday at about 7 a.m. The video was released by the police after a resident in the neighborhood provided it to them.

The video shows a man and woman who appear to be arguing. The man holds down the dog while the woman aims a gun and shoots him.

Police say they were called to the incident after reports of a shooting were phoned in. When they arrived they found the dog apparently deceased from the shooting injury.

Witnesses told the police they saw the couple pull over in their silver Chrysler 300 while arguing. According to Lakewood police spokesman John Romero, the witnesses say they saw the shooting of the dog after the man struggled with it.

“The dog was with the couple the entire time,” Romero added. “It appears the dog was a pet of theirs.”

Captured on video

The police released the video given to them by the neighbor, but they edited the actual moment that shows the woman shooting the dog. Instead, it shows a video snippet prior to the shooting and afterward.

Romero confirmed that the shooting of the dog was captured on video.

Police are seeking help from the public to identify and find the suspects. They offered a description of the suspects they sought:

  • A white or Hispanic man with black or dark hair. He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans with white shoes.
  • A white or Hispanic woman with blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a black, long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
“We don’t see stuff like this,” Romero added. “That’s why we want to find the people who were involved to find out the circumstances of what happened.”

Here’s the video released by police:

denver George floyd George floyd protests Intelwars Police viral videos watch

Protester jumps on hood of vehicle surrounded at intersection — but driver is in no mood to play

Protesters rioting in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd are not the only ones up in arms. Indeed, unrest and violence has been spreading to other American cities such as New York and Los Angeles.

Even in Denver several shots were fired near the Colorado Capitol building Thursday evening amid protest marches.

In addition, KUSA-TV reported that demonstrators blocked an interstate as well as major thoroughfares through downtown Denver.

And at one intersection, protesters had surrounded a vehicle — and things got ugly fast.

Video shows the driver moving through the crowd around the vehicle, but one protester is seen kneeling on the hood. It isn’t clear from the video when he mounted the hood.

Image source: YouTube screenshot

But as the driver accelerated, the protester was forced to hop off.

Image source: YouTube screenshot

But the driver made an immediate U-turn and hit the protester, knocking him to the street.

Image source: YouTube screenshot

Naturally that got his comrades even more fired up, and they ran after the vehicle.

The protester hit by the vehicle didn’t seem hurt, KUSA said.

youtu.be

What else?

According to the Twitter user who posted the now-viral clip, the hit protester “was not on the hood of her car before she started moving. He jumped up because she wouldn’t stop accelerating towards the people surrounding her car. ‘It’s illegal to jaywalk and block traffic.’ It’s illegal to murder an innocent human being.”

The Twitter user — who goes by Anabel — also said “we wanted a peaceful protest. Everyone had walked away from the car, and she purposely turned around and ran him over” and that video and images of the vehicle’s license plate have been sent to Denver police.

A different Twitter user commented that “I was there at this moment and was nearly run over myself, he was on the hood because she attempted to ram her car thru a crowd of us a first time. That’s how he ended up there to begin with. It was a [Black Lives Matter] protest. She attempted to ram her car through an entire crowd of people.”

Dissenting opinions

But not every commenter was sympathetic to the protester who got hit:

  • “I’m going to assume you were all just crossing the street legally in the crosswalk and she blew through a light. That is how he ended up on the hood of her car. Now, if that isn’t the case, and you all had surrounded the car like a mob, what do you expect her to do?”
  • “If she wanted to hit him, she wouldn’t have stopped.”
  • “Some guy deliberately jumped on the hood of some girl’s car & refused to dismount as some girl repeatedly sounded the horn to express disapproval of some guy damaging her car & blocking some girl’s travel on a public street. She didn’t have a knee in the game. Gimme a damn break.”
  • “Well…as far as I’m concerned…she passed the driving test.”
  • “Let’s be real here. He deserved it.”

arrest Coronavirus denver Intelwars Jail Philadelphia Police

Denver police arresting fewer suspects in effort to keep COVID-19 out of jails

The Denver Police Department has implemented a new policy of issuing summonses to some non-violent suspects who would ordinarily be arrested and sent to the slammer, in an effort to prevent COVID-19 from spreading to jails.

Jurisdictions across the country have implemented similar measures amid the coronavirus outbreak not only to protect incarcerated individuals and jail personnel, but the law enforcement officers who continue to serve the public.

What are the details?

The Denver Post reported that that DPD and nearby Boulder County have enacted guidelines for officers to “default to issuing summons instead of arresting people suspected of low-level, non-violent property and drug crimes,” noting that “those given a summons could still face charges, but they won’t be taken into custody.”

DPD Chief Paul Pazen told the newspaper Monday, “We don’t want to unnecessarily introduce infection in the (Downtown Detention Center) or the county jail for a low-level crime. We want to use good judgment to reduce risk and reduce exposure.”

The Colorado counties are not alone.

On Tuesday, the City of Philadelphia implemented a policy delaying the arrests of suspects for an array of “nonviolent” crimes after courts were ordered to close until April 1, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw issued an internal memo announcing that:

“Effective today (March 17, 2020), during the 4pm x 12am tour, arrests for the following offenses will be effectuated via Arrest Warrant:

  • All Narcotics Offenses
  • Theft from persons
  • Retail theft
  • Theft from auto
  • Burglary
  • Vandalism
  • All Bench warrants
  • Stolen auto
  • Economic crimes (bad checks, fraud)
  • Prostitution”
The directive included a highlighted paragraph clarifying: “If an officer believes that releasing the offender would pose a threat to public safety, the officer will notify a supervisor, who will review the totality of the circumstances and utilize discretion, in the interest of public safety, in determining the appropriate course of action.”

A KYW-TV reporter confirmed on Twitter that while Philadelphia police will arrest and release individuals for certain non violent crimes, “those arrested will be re-arrested at a later date.” He added, “It will be case by case meant to avoid overcrowding/close contact by prisoners during #CoronavirusOutbreak.”

CDC centers for disease control and prevention Coronavirus Coronavirus america Coronavirus outbreak Coronavirus us dance Dance party denver Intelwars neighborhood neighbors social distancing Video

VIDEO: Denver neighbors hold a ‘social distancing dance party’ in the street to beat back the coronavirus isolation blues

As community life has come to a screeching halt across America amid the coronavirus outbreak, residents of a Denver neighborhood found a creative way to beat back the social distancing blues — by holding a neighborhood dance party.

One neighborhood resident caught the dance party on video and posted it on Twitter.

“Meanwhile on my block: Social-distancing neighborhood street dance party. 4 songs, 14 minutes of fun and community — while 6 feet apart,” the caption for the original tweet read.

In the clip, you can see people of all ages in the street, dancing with each other while remaining 6 feet apart. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes the virus is usually transmitted person-to-person “between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).”

Many cities and towns around the country have closed down bars, restaurants, and shops in hopes of stemming the community spread of the coronavirus. Schools have sent students home and businesses have asked employees to work remotely.

The CDC issued updated guidelines Sunday, recommending that event organizers cancel or postpone events consisting of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks.

President Trump also issued guidelines from the White House Monday that advised all Americans to avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people and avoid discretionary travel for the next 15 days.

As of Tuesday morning, more than 4,500 in America had tested positive for the virus, resulting in more than 90 deaths.

36 arrests Armenta-vasquez Blackett denver Detainer Detainer request ICE illegal illegal immigrant Immigration and Customs Enforcement Immigration detainer Intelwars sanctuary cities Sanctuary City Stabbed a judge

Illegal immigrant who has been arrested 36 times was released three times under sanctuary polices. Now he is accused of stabbing a judge.

An illegal immigrant from Mexico recently charged with stabbing a Denver-area judge was reportedly the subject of three deportation attempts that failed due to local sanctuary policies in the months leading up to the alleged crime.

According to a new investigative report from KUSA-TV, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement lodged three separate detainer requests for Jose Armenta-Vasquez, 39, last year — only to have Denver Sheriff’s Department deputies ignore or deny them each time.

ICE submits detainer requests when someone suspected of being in the country illegally is arrested for a crime. The detainers are designed to inform local law enforcement so that they can hold the individual in question until federal immigration officers perform an investigation.

In this case, Denver law enforcement chose to release Armenta-Vasquez back into the public without giving ICE “adequate notification.” Just one month after the third detainer request, police believe that Armenta-Vasquez repeatedly stabbed Adams County Magistrate David Blackett near his east Denver home. Blackett nearly died from his stab wounds, KCNC-TV reported.

Though the crime was committed last summer, the suspect was not arrested until Jan. 14.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation reported that Armenta-Vasquez has been arrested a whopping 36 times over the past two decades and has used two dozen aliases.

KUSA reported:

The detainer requests remain a sore subject in an ongoing feud between the city of Denver and ICE. Denver city officials have repeatedly said they cannot continue to hold anyone — no matter their immigration status — without a signed order from a judge.

ICE leadership, on the other hand, has repeatedly criticized the city of Denver for not being more cooperative with its detainer requests. …

… When an inmate under a detainer request leaves the Denver jail — in lieu of bond, for example — Denver has elected only to give ICE what amounts to a short “heads up” via fax of the imminent release. Sometimes the fax comes a half-hour before release, and sometimes it comes a few hours before release, according to documents.

“They’re not allowing us to assume custody in their jails,” ICE Deputy Executive Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Henry Lucero said on Fox News last month with regard to Denver’s practices.

Denver is not the only jurisdiction in the U.S. that has adopted sanctuary practices that ultimately put the public at risk.

A recent Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General report found that sanctuary policies employed in jurisdictions around the country have amounted to more than 17,000 illegal aliens being at large as of last year.
