Meanwhile, innocent people are having to deal with the poisonous element hiding amongst the legitimate protestors. There are videos of unarmed women deterring looters, standing in the way of businesses being targetted. So did David Dorn, a 77 year old retired police captain who was shot by looters as he tried to protect his neighbourhood, and he was black. Could do with a few rifle-toting flag-wavers in those cases, but I guess they're having trouble finding the courage.

So something posted yesterday like this?

Okay that is just the most batshit answer you could give. First as previously mentioned, not all women can take the pill for a wide range of reasons. Second, where the actual flying fuck is the respon

You know Interfax is a Russian state agency right?

And the greater irony to this is that the incidents in many of the major cities (which are also Democrat controlled btw), don't make it onto the MSM, for example:

There's more going on here than the so-called "peaceful protests", and all it's doing is giving people two choices.... either the red pill or the giant red suppository and also...

Well it's no surprise that the mostly democrat controlled cities have incidents. Most cities are democrat controlled, even in deep red states. Some of those headlines in the image are very odd though.. 1000 protesters did not clash with police and the secret service at the white house. The secret service (not DC police) just outright unleashed teargas and rubber bullets on them, also beating up anyone in their path, because the big orange baby with the tiny hands wanted a photo op.

Which is the problem here as those cities (like Seattle) are known to have their mayors issue stand down orders to police, often with the police chiefs being complicit in following the orders.  I suspect the frustration caused by those orders, combined with perhaps letting the cops be a bit too free with how they police, are likely what's causing a lot of the police brutality as it's just frustration and what would be known in the private sector as bad corporate culture.

They look odd because the MSM is suppressing information about this and calling all the riots "peaceful protestors".  I mean, I can go drive through part of Dallas where a "peaceful protest" occurred... and see MANY businesses destroyed.  While this is about a seven hour stream, jumping around in it you can get a decent feel for what exactly these protests especially when looting occurs (at about 6:44:00 in the video).

Yeah, spend enough time in the above video and you'll see the holes in that narrative.

I suspect that Antifa is involved, as we know at least the Portland, OR chapter (Rose City Antifa) is being ran a little too coordinated to just be a disconnected random group of people.

Other relevant stuff to this entire thing, when you have memorials and monuments in DC getting defaced, having people be on guard with a site that's not only the Presedential home, but also a museum and property of all of the US citizens.  I mean, here's some of the defacing that's occurred:

dcvandalismprotests.jpg?itok=AXdPA9Y0

What irks me the most about this is that they defaced the WWII memorial, which is frustrating especially since one of the most fighter escort groups from that era are the Red Tails aka the Tuskegee Airmen, aka the first black air squadron ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_Airmen )

And here's some cold hard truth about George Floyd....

What I find completely shocking about all of this is that David Dorn and Dave Patrick Underwood are not getting NEAR the coverage as George Floyd... likely because George Floyd fits the MSM narrative for what a black person "should be".

The highlight of Vegas on your map is about conservative minded people intentionally causing trouble. You're just popping up random stuff you know nothing about.

Meanwhile Biden and Pelosi are out in the demonstrations talking to people, and where is Bunker Boy? He's doing basement inspections. _O-

Yes, because this shooter is oh so clearly white:

Edit:

Why don't you go read an actual account of what happened that night? https://heavy.com/news/2020/06/police-officer-shot-head-las-vegas/

G. Floyd's past is irrelevant.  At the time of his death, he was unarmed and four police officers were holding him down with one of them placing his knee on his neck for nearly 9 minutes (3 minutes of which, he was non-responsive).  That's the point, full stop.  Candace Owens--who sold her soul years ago--reading off a laundry list of everything that G. Floyd did wrong in his life is just your typical deflection.

Can't some of the security detail start shouting breach breach breach and take Trump to the bunker, Jerad must have cleaned up Fridays' shit by now. Switch off power and give him an appropriate sound-track and we have ourselves the best reality show ever. Think of the ratings, he'll love it :)

This video sums up the situation quite nicely:

 

Trumps poll numbers are currently the lowest of any modern day President.

He's tied with Biden in Texas.  In Texas.

I think that sums it up nicely.

Elections aren't today but things look bleak for Trump. But, as Almagus says, what do you expect from a celebrity?

How can anyone think about voting for Trump this year

Because stuff like https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/04/stock-market-futures-open-to-close-news.html keeps happening:

Dow jumps 900 points, Nasdaq hits a record after surprise U.S. jobs surge

When the economy is bouncing back - the economy Trump built by the way - combined with Democratic cities doing dumbass stuff like disbanding police forces ( https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/05/minneapolis-police-union-bob-kroll-us ) which is only going to cause further chaos in the cities, enact policies that make stopping the riots extraordinarily difficult ( https://www.foxnews.com/media/police-panel-on-looters-quickly-released-under-ny-bail-reform-law ) because it's letting the rioters get back to rioting quite literally the next day (rather than waiting for the rioter to post bail like the way the system usually works).  With all of the rioting, it seems like the minorities are the ones hardest hit as it's their neighborhoods that are burning - which really raises an eyebrow as there have been out of state rioters caught and arrested.

Throw in the following democratic hypocrisy, and the question really should be "why would you want to vote democrat?"

Welk, since they are still 5 months away you can’t dat anything yet, of riots stops, protests continues and economy won’t recover, I don’t see Trump winning; of protests get put of hand, economy recovers Trump had better chances I guess

Everyone who sees how economies expand and contract, knows the American economy is always inherited from the previous administration. Trumps just been riding the coat tails of Obama's vision for America.

Also, Wall Street and the other investment indexes are controlled by algorithmic programs upwards of 90%. So the fluctuations don't give one fuck who the President is.

That's true... only for the first one or two years...  We're in the fourth year, so the economy is Trump's beast.

Not the case for reality and especially not for Trump. It took Trump at the least a year to get his administration to bare bones existence, let alone making and setting policy into action. Along that period, Obama appointees and civil service employees were still following previous set policies. Then, while and after, Trump went on a slash and burn of the old guard, it took near two years to have the slightest semblance of functionality. During those first two years and lingering on to today, came the deregulation purge changing policy, which has little direction and often meanders according to the mood of the President. Constantly changing appointees within his own administration, many of whom Trump brought in or ranked up, only to kick them to the curb. This creates vast time lengths of inconsistent policy, only mortifies what was already almost dead.

Wall Street doesn't reflect anything in regard to Trump. It is its own entity with near autonomous thinking and breathing, and is only marginally affected to any current change on US policy and regulation. Main street economy and Wall Street economies couldn't be farther apart than right now and contain no reflection on real life.

edit: I found this a day later.

The part in all this that I consider fucked up as I eluded to many pages ago is this. After Trump is gone, it will take four years to undo all the damage Trump has done to the US. This effectively makes the next President a presider over damage control and not a player to lead forward. Probably the best thing the next President can do is make a blanket rollback of every Trump change all at once via an executive order, then proceed from that starting point. Proceed and pin point problems to fix, rather than waste fours years working from a broken minds idea.

Trump may claim this is his beast, but this coming from a hyperbolic, megalomaniac, self absorbed narcissist, could anyone expect any less?

President Trump finally gets his border wall, black painted and all, to keep out illegals.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/white-house-almost-completely-surrounded-by-more-than-a-mile-of-fencing/ar-BB158t5Y

“How do we get to the White House?” asked a woman, pausing in the middle of 17th Street NW to squint at her phone.

The man standing beside her snorted. “Simple,” he said. “Just follow the fence.”

 

Biden gets more done hanging out at his own house than the whole Trump administration gets done squatting in the White House.
