    Based on what? Where is the intent?

    Have you even looked at the readily available footage showing there was no knee on his neck? Have you looked at the MPD manuals that instruct him to do the very thing he did under those circumstances? Do you even know what murder means?

    But it’s astounding how narratives proliferate today.
    The narration drives the processing of the information. People will quite often believe what they are told that they are seeing over what they are actually seeing.

    Most people simply do not know how stupid and easily led they are. And they are doomed to continue to be until they realize it. Then at least they have a chance of believing their lying eyes.

    They also have a lot more motive for doubling down than just saving their pride.

    I think the one that stands out to me is the one about masks having negative health effects. THEY ABSOLUTELY DO. You can debate how severe it is and if you believe the trade-off is worth it, but you CANNOT debate that impeding someone's fucking breathing like that has negative health effects. I have OBSERVED this not just in how I have FELT wearing the damn thing at times but also in actual measurable numbers. Fucking around on an exercise bike, I experimented with a very light cardio routine alternating mask on/off for intervals. Mask on bumped up the heart rate every time. There's some room for debate on a lot of this shit even if I disagree with their stances, but there is NONE on the fact that the masks have negative effects on health.

    Project Veritas
    ...and then they cancelled O'Keefe. Clearly he hit a nerve there. I wish him luck proliferating his future endeavors online, it's gonna be a hell of an uphill battle I am sure. He's very good at getting to the bottom of this stuff though. If what I heard about how they snagged this latest CNN guy is true, our intelligence agencies ought to take notes.

    Looks like "beyond a reasonable doubt" is getting harder to reach.

    Admittedly, I havenít thoroughly looked into it much past watching the video. Once all the BLM hysteria got attached to it, I made a conscious effort to avoid anything to do with it at all costs.

    Iím still at work at the moment but I will have a read of the link you sent me this evening.

    Gyms/Hospitality sector in the UK is back open as of last week, and rather than rejoicing of that fact the media here are running daily hysterical headlines about new deadly mutations of Covid thatís going to put us all back into another lockdown. The silly bullshit just goes on and on.

    Anyway, on a brighter note, I was able to train with barbells this week for heavy 5s instead of pumping out endless reps with the dumbells I managed to get hold of during lockdown. So thatís good. People are starting to take the masks off now. So again thatís good.

    They have to sell it as they do so they can guilt you with the "Why can't you just do this little thing?" I've had people who have told me that, even though they don't think that the mask protects anyone, I should, like them, wear one out of "respect". I am sorry, but I won't coddle insanity.

    And even if the "dosage" of wearing a mask while walking to the restroom in a packed restaurant where you have been eating maskless for 45 minutes doesn't equate to any negative consequences, there are a ton of psychological down sides.

    But just like Rip posted the article about certain people loving the lockdowns, there are people (if we can call them that) who love the mask for the anonymity it provides. It's along the lines of some pervert "hiding" behind dark glasses.

    College, for many young people, is learning how to think like a liberal. Itís not an easy process to reverse when the network that you build in school is filled with leftists.

    Iím not disagreeing with your second paragraph, but donít be fooled into thinking that the education system isnít part of the problem. College, for many, os mind control.
    I was in school mid 2000s at a "prestigious" university whose name you would certainly recognize. I had a tenured philosophy professor stand in front of our class and tell everyone that if gender norms were erased, men and women would develop and present physically equally. He was dead serious. He had no interest in teaching, though, and except for a couple indoctrination sessions, left almost all of that to a TA (who was actually pretty decent, thank God). Luckily, this was just a humanities requirement and had nothing to do with my major. The engineering professors, on the other hand, were very competent and simply did their jobs. That is probably all in the process of changing now, though, as the cancer inevitably spreads.

    Oh yeah, criminals love the mask mandates. They don't get regarded as suspicious for hiding their faces anymore.

    The convo over the past few days that Jenni sparked over indoctrination and whether certain majors have a better grasp on analyzing reality was fascinating, but IMHO totally irrelevant:

    All of those majors, whether they've been prepared to sniff out BS or not, have to pay taxe$, like good little serfs.

    And, whether we "awaken" college attendees, to choose to avoid their own indoctrination, or not, the fact remains that all those taxe$ are what allow this to occur. Cut off the money flow and all this college indoctrination stops (and a whole lotta other usele$$ gov't stuff, as I've mentioned before).

    So, I think Dave is right, but too inconsequential, with his solution of building stronger communities, cuz you still gotta pay the Fed$, funding your own demise, and even when your community rightly defends itself from the Communists, the Fed$ are right there to support BLM,AntiFa, the Communists, and the looters, against YOU.

    And Jenni is right but also not effective enough, too, cuz awakening the sleeping, indoctrinated youth doesn't stop the money flow, and the Feds are always going to find new, stupid, woke $hit (or simply pointless wars and trade agreements) to blow all that money on.

    Now, these two solutions attack the boundaries of the problem, but never get to the core. Us retreating into communities or trying to "convert" the braindead just kicks the can down the road, like everyone who's sixty now tried to do when they were thirty in the nineties- just keep your head down, work hard, pay your taxe$, and support your family. But look where that got us. The thing is, the Leftists are REALLY good at winning these battles when they're only fought at the perimeter. And, dammit, their "perimeters" were breached with the Tea Party protests Trump's election, and this Capitol "uprising," yet look who's still coming out on top!

    They've got us still following their restrictions more than a year out, and have practically implented their wet dream of UBI! NO ONE has answered for their participation in the BLM riots at the same level as those Capitol insurrectionists (I'll be glad to be wrong on that one)! Do we know of any Leftists whose cars were keyed over bumper stickers, who missed out on promotions over political beliefs, whose children get harrassed by teachers and administrators for wearing Biden hats, who have to keep silent in public about their opinions? How many American powerful people and institutions must be compromised, for such incredible victories!?




    So....Jenni, thank you for your reply (LONG AGO but I've been busy!) about the institution of the "temporary" federal income tax in the early 20th century, but I had already looked up most of those facts.
    Look, the history books will show that the Bailouts occurred to help save our economy, but those paying attention will know that a lot of politicians had money in those bank$ and their derivative$, and that influenced their decisions.
    Similarly, sure, the history books tell us that funding the "war effort" is why Americans and their leaders agreed to turn us all into tax serf$. What *I* was asking is if anyone's aware of backroom deals and other blackmail and general sleaziness that helped get that atrocity (the temporary federal income tax to fund the war effort) heaped upon us!

    It really sucks, but probably only violent solutions help free us from the tax (slow-boiling ourselves to death) problem- just as our founders did to the Brits so long ago.
    How much did the Russians pay to the Tsar in taxes after the Revoltionary war was won? The Uzbeks to the Russians after the USSR collapse?How much is the Crimea paying to Ukraine in taxes now, after its seccession? :P

    By all means, don't initiate these needed "solutions" yourself - look where the peaceful protesters at the Capitol, the D'Souza's, the Flynn's, hell, the Wesley Snipes' of America, ended up! But don't kid yourself that these "perimeter" solutions help at all if you're still being fleeced as a tax $erf to fund your own culture's demise, as you seclude your community and try to red pill the next generation.


    So.....how'd that perpetual federal tax get dumped on Americans whose great, great-grandparents spilled blood and lost treasure to free themselves from British tax serfdom??
