Cop put on leave after wrapping hands around suspect's neck

A shocking video shows the moment a Mississippi police officer taunts a young man while wrapping his hands around his neck and onlookers desperate try to get him to stop.

In the footage from 4.30pm on Friday, a woman standing nearby is heard pleading with the officer to let go, saying: 'He's not breathing. He's not breathing.'

The Jackson Police Department officer in the clip was placed on administrative leave Monday after the incident circulated on social media. Public information officer Sam Brown said the patrol man's name is Myron Smith, the Jackson Free Press reported.

The video was filmed outside the Beauty Zone and 88 Cent stores on Bailey Road in Jackson.


Biden Confuses D-Day With Pearl Harbor

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden confused D-Day and Pearl Harbor—as well as the date that Delaware declared its independence from neighboring Pennsylvania—at a Wednesday campaign event.

"We declared our independence on December the 7th. It's not just D-Day," Biden said in an online townhall with Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf, referring to Delaware's breakaway from Pennsylvania.


Wedding company denies refund after man’s fiancée dies

Not exactly the picture of kindness.

A wedding photography company refused to refund a Colorado man after his fiancée died in a tragic car crash — then taunted him online, according to reports.

Citing his rare and heartbreaking circumstances, Justin Montney, of Colorado Springs, asked the firm Copper Stallion Media to return a $1,800 deposit after his 22-year-old bride-to-be Alexis Wyatt was killed on Feb. 4, according to KRDO-TV.

“They said they’d extend my service to my next wedding, which was a very insensitive thing to tell me,” he told the station. “They should have been able to [refund it] because they didn’t render any services.”

But the Texas-based photography company denied his request, citing a “legally binding contract” signed in November.

As word of the refusal spread, people left dozens of negative reviews on the company’s social media pages, along with the wedding site, according to Fox 6 Now.


George Floyd protests turn deadly after man shot outside pawn shop

A man was shot dead outside of a Minneapolis pawn shop Wednesday night as violent protests over thedeath of George Floyd rattled the city, authorities said.

Minneapolis cops are investigating reports that the victim was a looter shot dead by an owner of the business, police department spokesman John Elder said at press briefing early Thursday.

The man was found with a gunshot wound outside of Cadillac Pawn and Jewelry on East Lake Street near Bloomington Avenue at about 9:25 p.m. local time, Elder said.

“That is one of the theories that we’re working into,” Elder said in response to a reporter questioning if there’s any credence to the narrative that the owner shot dead a looter trying to break into his store.

“As I said, the body was found outside. And we have a couple of different scenarios as to what may have happened,” Elder told reporters.


State Workers: Volunteer or Be Reassigned to Virus Response

California needs 10,000 workers to act as contact tracers, but it has only trained about 950. Gov. Newsom has said if state workers don’t volunteer to be contact tracers, they might be temporarily reassigned to the job.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration expects more state workers to volunteer for contact tracing assignments, and if they don’t, the state has the authority to reassign them to the work, according to an administration spokeswoman.

Newsom is recruiting 10,000 contact tracers to call, text and email people who have been in contact with those who tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

So far, California has trained about 950 state and local government employees to be contact tracers. Another 350 are in the pipeline, according to numbers provided by Ali Bay, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Joint Information Center.

“Our expectation is that state employees will continue to volunteer for contact tracing because they understand the critical nature of this effort and recognize that public service involves stepping up for our fellow Californians during an emergency or disaster,” Bay said in an email. “During any statewide emergency, and in the case of slowing the spread of COVID-19 to protect public health, state workers can be reassigned as disaster services workers to assist with response and recovery efforts.”

The administration has asked state departments to identify 5 percent of employees who could be redirected to contact tracing assignments, Newsom said Tuesday. California employs about 230,000 state workers.


Man At The VA

I talked with a man at the VA the other day - an 80+ year old man. I asked him if there was anything I can get him while this Coronavirus scare was gripping America.

He simply smiled, looked away and said:

"Let me tell you what I need! I need to believe, at some point, this country my generation fought for ... I need to believe this nation that we handed safely to our children and their children ...

I need to know this generation will quit being a bunch of sissies ... that they respect what they've been given ... that they've earned what others sacrificed for."

I wasn't sure where the conversation was going or if it was going anywhere at all. So, I sat there, quietly listening.

"You know, I was a little boy during WWII. Those were scary days. We didn't know if we were going to be speaking English, German or Japanese at the end of the war. There was no certainty, no guarantees like Americans enjoy today.

And no home went without sacrifice or loss. Every house, up and down every street, had someone in harm's way. Maybe their Daddy was a soldier, maybe their son was a sailor, maybe it was an uncle. Sometimes it was the whole damn family ... fathers, sons, uncles ...

Having someone, you love, sent off to war ... it wasn't less frightening than it is today. It was scary as Hell. If anything, it was more frightening. We didn't have battle front news. We didn't have email or cellphones. You sent them away and you hoped ... you prayed. You may not hear from them for months, if ever. Sometimes a mother was getting her son's letters the same day Dad was comforting her over their child's death.

Kathy Griffin: Stabbing Trump with syringe containing 'nothing but air inside' would 'do the trick'

Kathy Griffin advocated plunging an air-filled syringe into President Trump.

Reacting to a tweet from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta that said Trump pondered whether or not he should be given an insulin regimen at a White House diabetes event Tuesday, the comedienne said: "Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick. F--- TRUMP."

In medical procedures, air accidentally injected into the body's bloodstream through syringes or IVs can cause air embolisms, which can be fatal.

Within moments, Twitter users were remarking how Griffin can expect another visit from the Secret Service.

Griffin stirred controversy in 2017 when she held up a bloody prop of Trump's severed head in a photo shoot, a move that disrupted her career and prompted a visit from the Secret Service, according to her lawyers.

“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” Griffin told reporters in tears after the photo became public. “I’m going to be honest. He broke me.”


‘Wretched Orange Man’: Twitter Official Overseeing Misinformation Efforts Is Anti-Trump Partisan Who Donated To Planned Parenthood

The Twitter official overseeing the tech company’s efforts to combat misinformation is a left-wing partisan who in the past has derided President Donald Trump as a “wretched orange man” and said he donated to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of site security, is the man in charge of the platform’s fight against election-related misinformation. Some of Roth’s past political comments from 2016 and 2017 began making the rounds in conservative circles Tuesday after Twitter fact-checked a Trump tweet predicting that universal mail-in voting would result in widespread fraud.


Here's Who Joe Biden Could Pick for the Supreme Court

Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, has pledged to appoint the first African-American woman to the Supreme Court if he prevails in November.

Biden's promise is a nod to the black voters who revived his once-flailing presidential campaign. His zealous courting of black votes has been awkward in stretches, as when he told radio host Charlamagne tha God that African Americans struggling to choose between himself and President Donald Trump "ain't black."

There are two broad groups Biden might select from, the first including sitting judges on federal and state courts, the second with more academic backgrounds. The leftwing group Demand Justice, which is pressing Biden to release a shortlist of potential nominees, has released its own list, which is heavy on academics and cause lawyers. A Washington Free Beacon analysis found the most likely candidates are U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger, and U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, with Stacey Abrams as a possible wildcard pick.

Every president since Ronald Reagan has made at least two appointments to the Supreme Court. Biden's pledge gives him a relatively small pool of candidates with a traditional background for elevation to the High Court. According to biographical data kept by the Federal Judicial Center, there are 17 black female federal judges under the age of 60, the upper limit for Supreme Court nominees in recent decades. Trump's two appointees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, were 49 and 53 respectively. Only a handful of black women on the federal bench are under 55, meaning Biden will have to cast a wider net for potential picks.

If elected, Biden will have to balance three competing problems when selecting a nominee: mounting pressure from the left to pick a candidate with varied occupational experiences, a possible Republican majority in the Senate, and the prospect of an expansive search.


Everyone Should Watch This

Attorney General Frosh Files Lawsuit Challenging Trump Administration’s Rollback of National Clean Car Standards

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today joined a multistate coalition in filing a lawsuit challenging the Trump administration’s final rule rolling back the national Clean Car Standards. The previous standards required appropriate and feasible improvements in fuel economy and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from passenger cars and light trucks, saving consumers money, reducing harmful emissions, and helping protect public health since they were introduced in 2010. The Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient Vehicles (SAFE) rule stops this progress in its tracks, hurting the economy and public health.

In the lawsuit, the coalition argues that the final rule unlawfully violates the Clean Air Act, the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act.

“Rolling back the Clean Car Standards will endanger the health of countless Americans. It will pollute our air and water, accelerate climate change and be costly for consumers,” said Attorney General Frosh. “It’s heedless and illegal. It’s a gift to the fossil fuel industry at great expense to the American people.”

In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the California Air Resources Board, and car manufacturers established a unified national program harmonizing greenhouse gas emission standards and fuel efficiency standards. Two years later, the agencies extended the national program to model years 2017-2025 vehicles. As part of the program, California and the federal agencies agreed to undertake a midterm evaluation to determine if the greenhouse gas emission standards for model years 2022-2025 vehicles should be maintained or revised. In January 2017, the EPA completed the midterm evaluation and issued a final determination affirming that the existing standards were appropriate and would not be changed.

The following year, the Trump administration took its first step toward dismantling the national Clean Car Standards by reversing the final determination with a new mid-term evaluation that alleged the standards were no longer appropriate or feasible. The administration later made its rollback proposal official, despite the fact that the auto industry was currently on track to meet or exceed the Clean Car Standards.

17 Diseases Named After Places Or People

While liberals and woke media elites obsess over calling Republicans racist for using the term “Wuhan virus,” the practice of naming a new disease after a population or the site of its first major outbreak is actually pretty common. In fact, pundits used the term widely to identify the origins of the epidemic.

In this case however, it’s even more important to identify the new Wuhan coronavirus sweeping the globe with its origin in the Chinese city of Wuhan as China tried to mask the warning signs of a global outbreak and downplay its severity leading to what the World Health Organization has now declared a “global pandemic.”

Here are 17 other diseases named after populations or places:

West Nile Virus

Named after the West Nile District of Uganda discovered in 1937.

Guinea Worm

Named by European explorers for the Guinea coast of West Africa in the 1600s.
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

Named after the mountain range spreading across western North America first recognized first in 1896 in Idaho.
Lyme Disease

Named after a large outbreak of the disease occurred in Lyme and Old Lyme, Connecticut in the 1970s.
Ross River Fever

Named after a mosquito found to cause the disease in the Ross River of Queensland, Australia by the 1960s. The first major outbreak occurred in 1928.

The Governor also said his team encourages local leaders to be innovative. He gave examples of street closures to allow restaurants to spread out  tables and allow for more outdoor seating than typical.

The Things You See On Facebook...

(Has anyone else heard this?!?)

Italy has allegedly discovered Covid is not a virus, but a bacterium. It clots the blood and reduces the oxygen saturation from dispersing throughout the body. They went against the World Health Organisation's "law" that no bodies be autopsied.

When Italian Ministry of Health ordered many autopsies, they found the blood was clotted in all of the patients veins. They immediately started using aspirin 100mg and a coagulant medication. And have had immense success. 14,000 people were released from the hospital as "healthy" and Covid free.

Italy is demanding Bill Gates and the World Health Organization be held accountable for "crimes against humanity" for misleading, misdirecting, and withholding life saving information from the world, which cost the lives of thousands.

Ventilators and ICU units were not necessary. A mandated vaccine is not necessary. Covid-19 is a bacterium, easily treated with aspirin and anticoagulant. Spread the word! Make this global.

All Laws Must Comply With the Constitution or They Are Void

AIM4Truther Mike N. wants all patriots to be aware of this information about the courts and constitution. We have included his entire note to us so that no details are missed:

In today’s (3/26/18) “My Bad” video/audio with Thomas, you stated that, “They’ve taken away all our Constitutional rights in these things [the agreements so vast they know we’re not going to read them].”

I don’t know if you’ve looked at the 8-page document I emailed to you a few weeks ago entitled, Non-authority of the Feds, which you said you passed on to the Conclave. So, I’ve attached another copy of it which I hope you will go through.

I doubt that any lawyers on your teams will agree with what I’m presenting to you, but they’re B.A.R. members and would be ostracized for straying from official and accepted doctrine.

First of all, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in several different decisions from the past that Congress has no exclusive jurisdiction over us unless we live in Washington, D.C., federally-owned lands, buildings, forts, etc., and the U.S. territories. FEDERAL STATUTES and REGULATIONS have no lawful applicability and effect on the citizens of the states. In fact, the U.S. Constitution has no effect on us, either, unless we’ve sworn and subscribed an oath of allegiance to it.

Of course, all those employed in the 3 branches of government have (purportedly) sworn that oath and are bound by it. The ONLY power/authority/jurisdiction that the Constitution gives to the federal government is enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 – the Congress to enact legislation in pursuance of those enumerated responsibilities, the President to execute that legislation, and the judiciary to arbitrate disagreements that arise over those responsibilities.

It’s all a ruse. There are no courts of law anymore – merely administrative courts that have no lawful power to prosecute and punish. The U.S. Supreme Court was put in place only to arbitrate disagreements between states and to serve as the ultimate appeals court. Decisions made by the U.S. Supreme Court have applicability and effect ONLY upon the two litigants in a case – the plaintiff and the defendant – NOT the whole stinkin’ country!

President Donald Trump continued Wednesday to raise questions about former President Barack Obama spying on his campaign during the 2016 election.


The president previewed new information that proved the Obama administration spied on him, adding to claims he has made publicly before:

“New papers make CLEAR that the Obama Administration SPIED, in an unprecedented manner, on the Trump Campaign and beyond, and even on the United States Senate,” he wrote.

Trump spent Tuesday night retweeting news and information on Twitter about the Russia “hoax” investigation as Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennell spent his last day declassifying new documents about the case.

China Builds Massive Spying Capacity in Africa

State-linked firms have built almost 200 government buildings on the continent

The Chinese government has established an unparalleled spying capacity in Africa by encouraging Chinese companies such as Huawei to construct government buildings across the continent, according to a recent report.

The report, published by the conservative Heritage Foundation, found that Chinese firms—many of which are state-owned or linked to the government—have built or renovated 186 government buildings in Africa. Many were constructed in the last two decades. Senior Policy Analyst Joshua Meservey, the report's author, said the buildings are "a likely vector for Chinese spying," given the Chinese government's history of using such buildings to spy on its inhabitants.

"Beijing may have better surveillance access to Africa than anywhere else in the world," the report reads. "The Chinese government could use the information it harvests to advantage its companies competing against American and other firms, glean insights into U.S. security assistance and counterterrorism programs, and recruit or influence senior African government officials."

The report comes at a time of heightened U.S. interest in China’s activities in Africa, where the communist regime has undertaken hundreds of infrastructure projects in a bid for influence. The U.S.-China Economy and Security Review Commission—a bipartisan body sanctioned by Congress to research China-related issues—held a full-day hearing earlier this month to evaluate China’s strategic aims in Africa.

"The Chinese development model [in Africa] often serves to enrich the PRC and expand its perceived sphere of influence," Christopher Maloney, a senior official at the U.S. Agency for International Development, said during the hearing.


OPINIONPublished 8 hours ago Judge Andrew Napolitano: Coronavirus shutdowns ordered by governors and mayors are unconstitutional

The governors of all 50 states and the mayors of many large cities have assumed unto themselves the powers to restrict private personal choices and lawful public behavior in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

They have done so not by enforcing previously existing legislation but by crafting their own executive orders, styling those orders as if they were laws, using state and localpolice to enforce those so-called laws and – presumably when life returns to normal and the courts reopen – prosecuting the alleged offenders in court.

It is hard to believe that any judge in America would permit a criminal trial of any person for violating a standard of behavior that has not been enacted into law by a legislature.

Video: How Planned Parenthood Uses Uber to Arrange Secret Abortions

The abortion mill utilizes the judicial-bypass process to exploit teenagers.

An attorney who helps minors to obtain abortions via the judicial-bypass process has claimed that Planned Parenthood pays for Uber to transport teens for abortion procedures without parental knowledge.

In a video interview with Progressive Massachusetts in April, attorney Christine Bonardi told interviewer Jonathan Cohn that she feels laws requiring parental consent or notification before a minor obtains an abortion is “part of the patriarchal society that we live in that women do not have the ability — no matter how old they are — to make decisions on their own about their own healthcare.” Bonardi claims she is usually contacted by Planned Parenthood by text when a minor is seeking an abortion but must wait until the minor contacts her personally before she can assist the minor in obtaining a judicial bypass. A “judicial bypass” is an order from a judge stating that a minor may obtain an abortion for herself without adhering to a state’s laws mandating parental involvement.


Robin Smith: Pathogens, Pelosi, Policies ... They're Connected

San Francisco is losing residents because of policies that preceded coronavirus.

News headlines have reflected the movement of citizens out of several cities due to COVID-19 in recent days. The New York Times, CNN, USA Today, and others —including us — have noted the flight of residents to suburbia or other destinations to escape the densely populated areas hardest hit by this pathogen.

But it’s not just individuals worried about catching a bug who are leaving large cities.

A few weeks ago, self-described moderate Tesla founder Elon Musk declared to his 34 million Twitter followers, “Take the red pill” — a reference to the movie “The Matrix” and the idea of being freed from a false construct of civilization. Tesla was being forced to close its Fremont, California, manufacturing facilities for a prolonged period, even as other states were reopening their economies following the complete societal shutdown.


Book claims Bill Clinton had an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell

Bill Clinton had an affair with British-born socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of helping recruit underage victims for notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to a blockbuster new book.

The ex-president — who denies cheating on wife Hillary Clinton with Maxwell — reportedly engaged in the romps during overseas trips on Epstein’s private plane, a customized Boeing 727 that’s since become known as the “Lolita Express.”

The nation’s 42nd head of state also repeatedly sneaked out to visit Maxwell at her Upper East Side townhouse, as detailed in this exclusive excerpt.
