People were upset, justifiably so and the sentiments were not best expressed.

Another Bob

Sitting here with the scanner on, listening to the local PD chase the rioters around. Rocks, bottles, fireworks being thrown.

So pointless.

Narciso

I think michael caine said it best 'some men (and women) just like to see the world burn"

Porchlight

Sorry to hear that AB. Nothing of rioting note on the Austin scanner tonight.

Melinda

Looks like the megaphones are being removed from the chessboards:

We already have multiple reports of journalists being arrested tonight. Here are the cases we have so far:

Did Russell Honore have any known head injuries during any of his deployments?

Narciso

Wasnt this excuse not to go after red army faction until the schleyer affair and even then

joan

Oh, Pin, it pisses me off to see police or whites taking a knee in front of protestors. They'd have to knock me down ... which they would since I'm an elderly white woman.

The groveling symbolism of that is repulsive.

Melinda

Weapons being removed from AnteFa vehicles tonight.

About to get to a new level. Be safe people.

Melinda

Joan-

It may have tagged the bad actors over the true protestors by taking a knee.

One would think the french ultimately invaded algeria and it took them 17 years to pacify the country.

This is a protest group on an interstate in Tulsa. They tried to stop a truck and horse trailer. Plucky demonstrator throws smoke bombs, fire works in on horses, man driving truck wont stop, people attacking his truck, idiots trying to force stop IN FRONT OF TRUCK get knocked down ... chaos. Horses burned.

Just a large number of spoiled, young anarchists getting their rocks off on violence, barbarism.

Totally disturbing video, thinking about fear of horse owner trying to protect himself, his horses from violence ... in a 'cause' they somehow think he and others like him owe them submission and support and a knee. Fuck them all.

Another Bob

New tactic: Nat guard helo doing a low hover over a crowd. Don’t know if the point is mere dispersal, or redirecting projectiles.

Morons on twitter bitching they’re violating FAA regs.

Narciso

They should have used the blue thunder copters on stealth mode.

Narciso


Now if they would start with strafing nbc news well theyd get somewhere.

Here's some red meat. The LA Times whitewashes Antifa.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2020-06-01/antifa-protests-donald-trump-terrorist-group%3f_amp=true

Designating Antifa a terrorist orga "would have a chilling effect on free speech."

"What kind of high do you get from fentanyl?"

Maybe when I was listening to Scott Adams podcasts? (I think his step-son died of it).
It must be wrong, but I've heard (somewhere) that Oxycontin is 100 times more addictive than heroin and that fentanyl is 100 times more addictive than oxycontin.
I don't think the high is anything special though.

MissM: "I have noticed a deep disturbance in The Force tonight"

Wasn't it clarice who, two days ago, felt something BIG was going on but couldn't find anything in the published news?

Italy is starting to recover.
"An Italian doctor says that the novel coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal."

https://legalinsurrection.com/2020/06/wuhan-virus-watch-new-study-to-probe-ventilator-use-amid-high-coronavirus-death-rate/


An Italian doctor says that the novel coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal.

“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the brunt of Italy’s coronavirus contagion.

“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” he told RAI television.

Italy has the third highest death toll in the world from COVID-19, with 33,415 people dying since the outbreak came to light on Feb. 21. It has the sixth highest global tally of cases at 233,019.

However new infections and fatalities have fallen steadily in May and the country is unwinding some of the most rigid lockdown restrictions introduced anywhere on the continent.

--Your criticism of TK barely registered so you weren't the target of my ire, but now that you're treating my paraphrase as just some dubious statement maybe you should be--

So you think it's reasonable to issue a demand that people give a yes or no answer to your question about someone else's statement without seeing the actual statement or the context it came from and if they don't they're going to be a target of your ire, and from your earlier comment, you apparently intend to do so until everyone accedes to your demand?

Did Maryrose ever apologize for whatever she said? If not wouldn't it make more sense to address her directly about the issue rather than threatening and condemning third parties for not saying what you think they should say about something they may not even have seen?

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Ig: "So you think it's reasonable to issue a demand that people give a yes or no answer to your question about someone else's statement without seeing the actual statement or the context it came from and if they don't they're going to be a target of your ire, and from your earlier comment, you apparently intend to do so until everyone accedes to your demand?"

I'm guessing that CH does, indeed, feel it is reasonable. OR, PERHAPS, might concede it is unreasonable but has no remorse.

Does anyone even know what this is about? I thought I had scanned the comments but I think I completely missed this.

No, I do not want a summary. Or to be brought up to speed.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

I thought I has posted this but I don't see it.
Protest coming to my suburb!

They will march on Friday as the day darkens. All the local liberals are ecstatic and supportive, but ...
1) no org claims they've organized it
2) no mention of city permit
3) a march at 5pm might mean the protest goes until dark, at which point it may change its nature
4) no word on the route. will they block traffic by marching on the main street? will they fan out into the neighborhoods? my home is only a block from the main street. will there be destruction on the way to the end-point? or perhaps on the way back?

As far as I am concerned, Ig, you never read the full interaction between maryrose and me. So seeing “actual statements in context” should not matter.

Chicago’s western suburbs got hit hard over night. Naperville, Elgin. Lots of shooting as well, although it is tough to get a clear scope from twitter.

hoyden

Chicago, lots of shooting, another day ending in y.

MissMarple2

Good morning!

Here's a nice op-ed by Brad Parscale, talking about Twitter's attempted censorship of President Trump.

It boils down to a polite "F-U". HA!

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

"Chicago, lots of shooting, another day ending in y."

Although, don't they normally confine the shooting to poor blacks on the South Side? If there's shooting in the burbs, that's news.

MissMarple2

Today is our Wu-Flu modified primary election day. (It was supposed to be last month.) I discovered that my county has gone to "election centers" so I spent some time looking for where they are, only to find that I can still vote in the same place.

I will probably do that when I go pick up my grocery order at 9.

MissMarple2

Here is another view of President Trump walking to St. John's, which the President re-tweeted (and given the commentary of the poster, I find it hilarious). I wonder how many pearl strands will be clutched this morning!

Someone posted a link to a story about Officer Chauvin's wife filing for divorce.

My first thought was she wanted out due to her life being disrupted.

But, dear lawyers, could she (also) be sheltering assets?
Along with criminal charges, I assume the officer is likely to be hit with civil suits. If they're divorced perhaps she can keep their house? If assets are moved to her name only.
Otherwise they could lose everything.
Is that right? Or are assets "frozen" at the time of the offense so that hungry lawyers can come after them?

MissMarple2

Narciso,

That series of tweets that Jeb re-tweeted show me just what a complete asshole he is. I despise him !

I just got done listening to Victor Davis Hanson talk about his book "The Case for Trump" and how the political elite despised him. It was extremely enjoyable, as it brought back the memories of all of those debates and how, no matter what, Trump was always in the center of the group. HA!

MissMarple2

Jim,

I think it depends on the state. I wouldn't know, as our assets disappeared (except for the house and my diamond) before my husband ever filed.

Look at what the corrupt previous occupant of the white house has put out. Notice that 'just and equitable' phrase again. Also showing up in the statements of 'elite' school after elite school.

https://www.obama.org/anguish-and-action/

We work to help leaders change their world—and the world needs changing. The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the loss of far too many Black lives to list, have left our nation anguished and outraged. While now is a time for grief and anger, it is also a time for resolve. Find resources below to learn what you can do to create a more just and equitable world.

clarice

Yes, Jim, you remembered correctly. I had a very strong feeling something big was about to happen just before the riots began.

https://amgreatness.com/2020/06/01/no-trump-should-not-rescue-cities-again/

Well, to me Julie is getting in the same situation as those who are overcome with TDS.

There are many, many innocent people in those cities. I hae no objection at all to brining in the military and rounding up those instigators like that evil elf guy who was handing our cash and giving directions.

I also would be pleased to see him drag those democrat big shots who coordinated this off to jail.

One of the comments about his walk to St. John's Church pointed something out I hadn't seen last night:

"He walked ahead of the rest, making himself a clear shot so that no one else would get hurt."

rse

The UK is hyping as protesters were tear-gassed so trump could get a photo op.

MissMarple2

There is a NEW THREAD with the same title.

Apparently TM wants to test our IQ. LOL!

Captain Hate

you apparently intend to do so until everyone accedes to your demand?"

Nope, it's a done deal with me after AB and Mel owned up to it having happened. You can act however you want.

hoyden

Jim, it’s Democrats sharing their diversity with the burbs.

Captain Hate

Did Maryrose ever apologize for whatever she said?

No.

If not wouldn't it make more sense to address her directly about the issue rather than threatening and condemning third parties for not saying what you think they should say about something they may not even have seen?

I already did which apparently occurred during some Twilight Zone episode when some of you were in an alternate universe. Have you ever known me to not directly confront someone like I'm doing now?

Robin, eff 'em all

Along with criminal charges, I assume the officer is likely to be hit with civil suits. If they're divorced perhaps she can keep their house? If assets are moved to her name only.

Is that right?

My private practice CPA dad put everything in my mom's name - house, cars, investments, all of it - to protect assets in case of a lawsuit. They joked that my mom could throw him out penniless. The first thing that came to mind was that the officer and his wife had a similar arrangment with the understanding that she would file for divorce.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

There's a new Minnesota Burning thread (third so far).

Porch,

Could you describe that YouTube video you linked? It was pulled down.

It was clips of rioters getting punked.

I got behind here. Finally passed out after being up for 34 of 37 hours. Don’t feel like I slept at all. Need more covfefe.

Fentanyl is very powerful and is dosed in micrograms. If memory serves it is roughly 100 times more potent than morphine. Carfentayl was developed as and is used as elephant tranquilizer and much more powerful than fentanyl. Again, relying on a questionable memory, l believe a grain or two can be fatal. Scary, scary stuff. It was and probably still is being used as a cutting agent in heroin.

Back to ketchup, which does not belong on hot dogs.

Another Bob

Correct on all counts GJ.

But using this to cut h? Never heard of that. Makes no sense to me.

asw

Thanks CH. I hope that situation is closed. I think conversations are missed both because of catch up and killfile.

Just for the record, I am a woman and live in Chapel Hill. And I add for Dave I have a Timneh African Grey and kooky ideas as well.

Rocco

I guess they cut meth with Fentanyl too. One's an upper and one's a downer so it probably wouldn't make much sense to do them together, they'd probably cancel out each others effects, but that's a guess.

The researchers found that 80% of the crystal meth and 40% of the cocaine tested at Insite were also contaminated with fentanyl. Researchers tested more than 1,000 drug samples, asking Insite clients whether they wanted to test their drugs voluntarily. About five of the center's 600 daily visitors tested their substances, according to Dr. Mark Lysyshyn, the medical health officer for Vancouver Coastal Health and the lead researcher on the study.

Hello from Denver! I arrived yesterday from MT. Like entering a different CRAZY world. Angry angry people here. All masked😷. Have to be here to meet my son and DIL who are coming from South Carolina. The boy just received his medical degree and he and his bride, who is from the UK and is a pediatrician, planned to fly back to the UK. That plan has obviously changed. They plan to quarantine here for two weeks before they head up to MT. I am packing up the hubbie’s expensive stereo equipment and driving down to our house in AZ. I’m under curfew’s now in both states so I can’t leave until 5 am from Denver and have to be in my house in Maricopa by 8 pm. Plan to leave AZ at the curfew lift at 5 am on Thurs. and hopefully get as far as Pocatello to spend the night. Will kiss the ground when I’m back on the Point in MT. Crazy crazy times🤡
