    Some nice news for a change ... Thai Restaurant in Minneapolis, Protected by Black Volunteers, Lends a Hand MINNEAPOLIS — Save for one shattered window, Khun Nai Thai Cuisine in Minneapolis was protected from looting by a group of volunteers, which include black Americans and Jamaican-Americans. “Luckily, our shop was not damaged at all since we have a volunteer group protecting the community right across from our shop,” Suniporn Yotharak, owner of Khun Nai Thai said by online messages Tuesday. “Without them, all the shops in the area would have been destroyed,” she added. The restaurant responds with kindness: cooking free Thai meals for a Jamaican restaurant across the street who organized the volunteers that saved Suniporn’s business. The Jamaican restaurant, called Pimento Kitchen, in turn donates the food along with other essential goods to the community. Suniporn is one of the Thais and Thai-born American citizens caught in the protests and unrest that erupted after a group of policemen were seen suffocating a black man named George Floyd to death. “White or black or whatever race, we should all have equal rights,” said Suniporn, who has lived in the U.S. for 13 years. “If we are nice and not discriminatory, and respect their human dignity, then people are nice back.” Amazing Thailand, another Thai restaurant owned by a Thai in Minneapolis, is also reportedly untouched by the violence. The restaurant also put up messages calling for justice for Floyd as well as providing free meals to those in need, according to photos posted by Amazing Thailand. “Amazing Thailand and our staff are all doing okay this morning,” a statement by the restaurant said. “We are heartbroken for the pain our city is experiencing and thankful that our business, built and tended to by immigrants and people of color, can continue serving our community today.” Thai businesses in other cities have not been as lucky – Sunday local time, a Thai restaurant and a jewelry store in Thai Town had been looted. https://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/2020/06/02/thai-restaurant-in-minneapolis-protected-by-black-volunteers-lends-a-hand/

    1959 , holy Lord. Die Stadtverwaltungen von Siegburg, Troisdorf, Beuel, Bonn und Godesberg hatten die Strecke mit Girlanden und Spruchbändern tapeziert, das "Kuratorium Unteilbares Deutschland" hatte die Bevölkerung zu einer "machtvollen Demonstration" aufgerufen und - wie die Firma Pepsi-Cola und die Flüchtlingsverbände - Papierfähnchen verteilt, die sein Anliegen zum Ausdruck brachten. I found this piece confirming the flags had been supplied by Pepsi Cola. Leader khunsanuk should be in tears reading this.

    Mostly. But Bubi lives. Roughly 60 years ago President Eisenhower visited a place called Siegburg in Germany where I went to highschool at that time. He was greeting the crowd and I was waving an American flag. I swear this is the truth. Now look at Trump, I start vomiting.

    I got news for you. The U.S. is fucked either way. Overall, Trump has been a mitigated disaster. Do we have one ally left? Really, we literally have no allies. That is just one of a laundry list of things. Every Republican in the last 50 years ended their term with a crash or recession and more debt than they started with. Not that the Democrats are gods gift to politics, but the Republicans have no record to stand on. The party of fiscal sound governing is complete and utter bullshit. Obama lowered the unemployment rate and the stock market hit new high and debt went up most of his term. The Republicans kept talking about the debt. Trump gets in and all of a sudden the debt isn't an issue and its the stock market and unemployment is touted. Trump shows complete hypocrisy from what he criticized Obama about. He was right about some things about Obama's term but then did the same and worse. He'll lose big in November likely. One term and out and history will not be kind. I guarantee you by 2024, anyone who supported him won't be admitting it. Just like you can't find anyone who'll admit to being big for Bush. The only Republican any of them will admit to is Reagan. That's it. The Eisenhower supporters are mostly dead.

    President Bush: Floyd Protests Call to Examine Nation's Failures Former President George W. Bush voiced his support Tuesday for demonstrators against the police death of George Floyd, while calling for Americans to examine the "tragic failures" of the United States and to push for equal justice. "The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving," Bush said in his first statement about Floyd's death, reports The Hill. "Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place." He added that he and wife Laura had initially resisted speaking out because it was "time for us to listen" rather than "lecture," but said he's "anguished" by Floyd's "brutal suffocation" that occurred when a white police officer kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes. Demonstrators, meanwhile, are showing strength when they, "protected by responsible law enforcement, march for a better future," said Bush, stressing that justice will only come through "peaceful means." "Looting is not liberation, and destruction is not progress, but we also know that lasting peace in our communities requires truly equal justice," he said. "The rule of law ultimately depends on the fairness and legitimacy of the legal system, and achieving justice for all is the duty of all." The former president also called it a "shocking failure" in the United States that many African Americans are still harassed and threatened, and called on Americans to start a "courageous and creative effort" on inequality. https://www.newsmax.com/us/bush-floyd-minnesota-police/2020/06/02/id/970233/?fbclid=IwAR2UCfXkK9agQEQClPOuXrDOJ49Jl3QDR4pV-hHNilGU1Nq-2WDIKFjnZUA

    I want to point out one thing. The media, the so called left wing media, will use different language when the looter is of a different hue. I've seen two news reports where there was obvious looting. One older white woman taking clothes out of a store that was looted and saying "we don't know if she may be working there and is taking the items home" Some shit is endemic. Everyone is looting. Its across all demographics. This is Seattle, not Brooklyn or Atlanta.

    I do find one thing about that article curious. Why does it have to be no other cause but race related but the various opposite matters that make the media its up for debate. If that guy had a white girlfriend for example, can we say it was race related? There could be other extenuating circumstances. He's simply a mugger and a car thief. Why can't that be the simple explanation?

    There are never any pristine uprisings in America. None. The current protesters learned from others. America was founded on violent revolt. The various uprisings and revolts in American history, that today are celebrated by all if not most, Whiskey Rebellion, just after the country was founded, various union protests, both right and left wing. 1968 Chicago convention for the Democrats, the Selma marchers being attacked, Bundy farm having armed people ready to shoot law enforcement. So, forgive me if I find the current protests, revolt, uprising, riots, whatever we choose to be consistent with ALL such actions in America from all sides.

    in other news, white supremacist Congressman Steve King loses his primary race. He was the guy who was making comments for years about the end of 'western civilization' to outside people and then he just came out and said why is white nationalism and white supremacy a bad word? what a dumbass. It wasn't like the GOP didn't know he was a blatant racist, they just didn't do anything about it. Then King gave them no choice but to strip him of any committee duties, no power except his right to vote on legislation. His district in Iowa though, still gave him a fair amount of support which tells you how parts of 'middle America' is. They kept saying he misspoke and he's a fine Christian man. He is one of Trump's 'very fine people'. I've never found an American who can trace his arrival to America prior to 1619. Are there some out there? Sure, but they are such a small number, you have look hard for them. Blacks were brought in from 1619 and are still not 'western' to Steve King and others who think like him. Native Americans aren't western and they were hear for 1000s of years. So you see how asinine the reasoning is that doesn't pass a logic test.

    Start by grasping the phone in your hand as you normally would, between the thumb and the partially closed fingers of your hand , with the screen up but with the bottom of the phone pointing away from you. Once you have achieved a suitable grip move your hand near to your pants pocket. Ensuring that there is indeed an opening in the pants pocket carefully guide the bottom of the phone to engage with the opening. Carefully continue with the insertion process until the phone is well inserted into the pants pocket. Note that this might require your hand to be fairly deeply embedded in your pants pocket, do not worry and resist the temptation to consider redeployment of your hand. Once the phone is securely embedded in the pants pocket release your grip and withdraw your hand taking care not to allow the phone to become withdrawn at the same time. With your phone now safely located in your pants pocket you can complete the registration task. Retrieve the pencil offered by the outstretched unwashed hand of the grinning security guard dressed in the latest uber scarecrow and who has his face mask wrapped around his chin and one finger deeply ensconced in a nostril. Sign your name, address, date of birth, social security number, sexual orientation, sexual preference, sexual pricing preference and favourite sexual accessories. Write a 200 word statement praising the remarkable achievements of the glorious Snr Sgt Oberstleutnant General Kleiner Schwanz Prayut. Et, voila, shop-on!

    Thai Enquirer has a nice piece today 😀 Actually quite fact laden despite the intention being elsewhere. http://www.thaienquirer.com/13861/foreign-affairs-unrest-continues-for-a-seventh-day-in-former-british-colony/ Foreign Affairs: Unrest continues for a seventh day in former British colony Unrest and protests continued for a seventh straight day in the former British colony of the United States as the government vowed to use its military to end the demonstrations, US media reported on Tuesday. The protests began in the small province of Minnesota, located in the agrarian ‘Middle West,’ over the killing of an ethnic minority by state security forces. Protests led by the minority ‘black’ community have erupted throughout the country with the minority group calling for equal rights and better treatment from the government. Protesters have set fire to government installations and looted buildings throughout the country as clashes with security forces continue. The security forces have tried to disperse the protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets and batons but to no avail. US President Donald Trump, who was ‘elected’ in 2016 despite the majority of votes going to his rival candidate, vowed in a speech to bring in the military to end the protests. “I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said in a national address. Trump used the opportunity to walk to a religious temple in the national capital Washington DC to proclaim his religious affiliation. Holding a Christian bible in his hand, Trump declared the US “a great nation.” Religious Fundamentalism and persecution of minorities Religious fundamentalism and minority suppression has long been a problem in the former British colony. The United States has had a long history of suppressing and persecuting its various ethnic minorities since the country gained its independence from the United Kingdom in 1776. The treatment of its indigenous ‘Native Americans,’ its imported Asian and Black communities, and its Hispanic community has long been a source of friction. American black minority groups were under a program similar to South Africa’s Apartheid policy until as recently as 1964. Today, the ethnic black community is still detained and killed with impunity by the state security forces and black Americans make up the majority of those incarcerated under the country’s archaic judicial system. Religion also plays a major role in governance with religious beliefs separating key state organs including the country’s highest court where many social laws are passed based on the justices personally held religious convictions. [Disclaimer: Native Americans is in quotations because it is a blanket term used by the ruling class of the US to call the country’s original inhabitants before the Anglo-European invasion. The ‘Native Americans’ are comprised of thousands of tribes, all with their own culture, language and traditions.]

    I have been overseas continually for over 10 years. I've met hundreds of fellow black Americans. For the purposes of this post, I'll refer only to non military black Americans. I've only known 3 black American males who have moved back permanently to America. 1 got married to a HS sweetheart, the other didn't plan on staying but...get this...got a job as a stunt man. He is in LA, younger guy, 32 I think, payed his way around the world as a street performer, doing street dance. The guy has crazy moves. He stumbled into the career when a friend of a friend said a movie set was looking for a black guy double who can do 'falls'. Anyway, I digress, they are the only two. No one has stayed for longer than 2 years without leaving permanently. Women are another matter. Many if not most come back, my guess is to look for a marriage partner. Tough for any western woman, especially of a certain age to find suitable marriage partners overseas. America is a fantastic country. Its hard to think of a better country specifically if you are black to fulfill your potential in any field you want to pursue. However, at any time, randomly, you can experience things that are life altering. It can be great for days, weeks, months years and then that one time. I've had a gun pointed at me about a half dozen times in my life. With one exception they were all police officers. And I'm not the argumentative 'why are you stopping me type". I comply. First, you can't win. I know before hand he or she has control. All i can do is argue my case after. Second is my parents. I'm the son of an old school baptist Deacon who was addressed and answered with yes sir, no sir, if he spoke to you sternly. Dad or pop if it was safe...haha. My parents did not accept any disrespect of authority figures by their kids. If you felt the adult was wrong, you told them. They said it was their job to fight on your behalf, not yours. So, I never argued with teachers, cops, security guards, etc. That said, I can think 2 incidents where I could have been shot and those were days there were no body cams. Once in LA, hot summer day, I was told by one of two cops to put my hands on the hood. The hood was scorching hot and my instinct reaction was to pull my hands off it. He pointed and said deliberately "Put....your...hands...on....the....car and I heard the click". My life flashed before me and I said officer, I can't, its too hot". He wasn't buying it in the moment. I didn't know what to do. Luckily his partner who was running my license and plate came out when he saw his partner point and realized the situation luckily. without seemingly to embarrass his partner in front of me he told him, I'll take him. Search the car. He saved my life. I knew it, he knew it and his partner was none the wiser and I hoped he told his partner later after I was released. Would this have happened to Cav or Flash? Maybe...maybe not. I was in south LA at the time, a rough area so the cops are on edge. I co own a condo with my brothers in LA. On hot days I used the pool. Residents have asked me if I am a resident or have a guest pass. I said Im an owner and this lady said, I've been living here for years and have never seen you. I said , I can assure you I am. She proceeded to call the cops .I get it. But an easier solution is the HOA supervisor. Tell them. The homeowners have an elected member you can call. I know this because I wonder why we are paying this person an ungodly amount extra in our fees to sit on their ass. haha. It was what she said in the 911 call that I didn't appreciate. She embellished the story. I was bothering guests, I was aggressive, I was sneaking into the pool. I was wondering who this person was she was describing. The cops came, she made excuses that she had to be careful, "there have been robberies and rapes". Bullshit. This area of the San Fernando valley, was predominantly white, jewish and persian (nice mix...lol) and a stolen bike is about as bad as it gets. I put down a nice chunk of a stock option buyout to get us that place. Its vetted. Its not the hood. LOL. Anyway, things can happen randomly to anyone. There are mass shootings for god sakes. But there are just too many incidents and the minute you leave your house you are well aware that your speech, clothes, body language, etc, has to convey "I am NOT a threat!". No such feeling in Barcelona, Korea, Dubai (where I'm presently on lockdown..worse places to be ), Thailand, etc. I may be seen as one of those boorish Americans but I'm not a physical threat. I'll take being assumed I'm a Trump supporting war monger than the alternative. My cousin said something profound on his social media, when someone said 'When is this shit gonna stop?" and he said "It will stop when Blacks folks react the same way white guys would under the same continual circumstances" and that was a sobering, hmmm..moment. There is a straw and camel's back moment that may happen at some point. It happened in the summers of '67 and '68. Dozens of cities in the north erupted in riots due to a confluence of many factors: The promise of equal rights hadn't stopped police brutality and access to union jobs, etc. The civil rights era turned militant with the Black Panthers and Nation of Islam becoming more prominent than the Civil Rights groups. You also had a lot of black Vietnam vets coming back and had no problem killing someone because it was their job for 2 years and they were facing discrimination after fighting for the country and finally you had the deaths of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr, two voices that were now gone and with it many thought any hope of change. Today, you have a similar match stick scenario. Thousands of gang members in these cities who have no problem shooting a gun, 1000s of former Iraq and Afghanistan vets. These cities have been hit hard economically by Covid 19 with African Americans being the most affected both by the virus and loss of jobs. Also, non black millennials are now sympathetic and may take the streets as well. All this could be a powder keg. The last thing the cities want is a reason for people not to come out and spend their money. People can take a side but one thing is clear, there aren't going to be any winners if it all kicks off. And although the police and possibly the national guard if its brought in can quell it eventually, the optics of that playing globally in this electronic age as well as the lasting economic ramifications, well, you can see its not good.

    Face The Facts: US COVID Death Numbers Are A NYC Epidemic, NOT A National Epidemic The sheer ease with which the American left has politicized the deaths of thousands of Americans has shocked even me. The United States is approaching 100,000 deaths and the left seems determined to make sure the public blames President Donald Trump for those deaths. As PJM’s Tyler O’Neil noted, the Democratic Coalition is trying to make “Trump Death Toll” a thing. While Tyler effectively demonstrated the absurdity of blaming these deaths on Trump, I’m going to show that despite the headlines that suggest things in the United States are the worst in the world, that is emphatically not the case. First, let’s take a look at the total confirmed deaths of the ten worst-hit countries in descending order (based on the numbers from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University as of 9:30 am ET May 24). USA (96,046) UK (36,757) Italy (32,735) Spain (28,678) France (28,218) Brazil (22,013) Belgium (9,280) Germany (8,275) Iran (7,417) Netherlands (5,841) But, here’s what happens when you adjust these numbers per capita. The following countries are arranged in descending order by their coronavirus death rate per million people (based on population data from The CIA World Factbook). Belgium (791.76) Spain (573.38) UK (558.95) Italy (524.58) France (415.90) Sweden (391.87) Netherlands (338.01) Ireland (309.86) USA (288.74) Switzerland (226.80) It makes an amazing difference, doesn’t it? The United States dropped from number 1 to number 9 once you adjusted for population. Oh, but wait! I’ve previously documented how the United States’ coronavirus numbers are skewed by downstate New York. So, here’s the same list as above, treating downstate New York as a separate country from the rest of the United States: Downstate NY (1,771.86) Belgium (791.76) Spain (573.38) UK (558.95) Italy (524.58) France (415.90) Sweden (391.87) Netherlands (338.01) Ireland (309.86) USA sans downstate NY (233.44) Once you separate downstate New York from the rest of the United States, it jumps to the top (by a long shot), while the rest of the United States is at the bottom—barely edging out Switzerland. It should be noted here that several countries are reportedly undercounting both cases and deaths, including Iran, China, and Russia. It’s very possible that the actual case and death numbers for these countries are much higher, possibly even putting them in the top ten, but without reliable data I can’t correct for this. As usual, the media wants the public to believe that the situation in the United States is worse than anywhere else in order to make Trump look bad. The United States approaching 100,000 coronavirus deaths is a grim milestone to be sure, but these deaths should not be politicized. Trump’s response was quick and decisive, and likely saved thousands of lives. https://en-volve.com/2020/05/25/face-the-facts-us-covid-death-numbers-are-a-nyc-epidemic-not-a-national-epidemic/?fbclid=IwAR2s6yaThsCqZBWAg45x1blKB2O3MPi1wqGGonNp1Sny-7d_nSfUhtYQ7LY

    Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season. Some things to think about... The average age of the men who landed on the five beaches in Operation Overlord was 20. Twenty years old. So next time you wonder if you can make it to classes in the middle of winter, or find your classes, or talk to a professor, remember this fact. The average D-Day age was 20. Fact: Assuming KIAs accurately represented age groups serving in Vietnam, the average age of an infantryman (MOS 11B) serving in Vietnam to be 19 years old is a myth, it is actually 22. None of the enlisted grades have an average age of less than 20. The average man who fought in World War II was 26 years of age.

    I've often felt Mr. Fiery Jack was due for some international recognition, perhaps a Pulitzer (sure there is a relevant category), an Interpol notice, maybe even a textbox in the latest edition of the Lonely Planet, as living history of the Nana Hotel or some such. I'm not sure that his employ of a broad range of emojis will age as well as Mr William Shakespeare's reliance on iambic pentameter, but the two men are certainly in the same neighborhood when it comes to capturing the vicissitudes of this human life we share. More recognition of a poster than any particular post, yet nonetheless - my hat-tip and thanks to Mr. Jack! YimSiam 🙂

It is a privilege for another country to be an ally of the USA. CS and others clearly show their hate for the democratic republic of the USA. Wake up call, the USA does not need such anti-American people!!! ...and of course CS fails to mention the TRILLIONS that Nancy Peloser has pushed thru the Congress...like that doesn't add debt to the USA? nice cognitive dissonance!!!

    I wondered about this as soon as I read that the four cops had worked together at the nightclub. Was this more than just a random happening? George Floyd and Derek Chauvin worked at same club and may have crossed paths, owner says George Floyd and Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with killing Floyd, worked security at the same local club for much of the year before their fatal encounter on a Minneapolis street last week. The owner of El Nuevo Rodeo said the two were in close proximity once a week for their Tuesday night shifts, though she did not know if they ever actually met while working at the club. Maya Santamaria said she had been paying Chauvin, when he was off-duty, to sit in his squad car outside El Nuevo Rodeo for 17 years. She said Floyd worked as a security guard inside the club frequently in the last year. In particular, they both worked on Tuesday nights, when the club had a popular weekly dance competition. Santamaria reflected Friday evening on how her business suddenly became central to a death that sparked anguished waves of protest, first in Minneapolis and then in cities across America. Chauvin was fired from the police department last week and charged with third-degree murder for pinning Floyd by the neck. She said Floyd was well known and liked by her patrons. He was "beloved in the Latin community because he worked at another Latin club too. When she'd check in during work, she said Floyd would ask her, "How are you?" or cheerily, "How you doing, boss lady?" Outside the club — which burned down last week as protests against police violence flared into civil unrest — she'd meet with Chauvin after each shift. "We would wrap up at the end of the night and do a review," Santamaria said. They'd discuss the times Chauvin was called in to the club to remove a patron, or dealt with someone outside the club. She said employees never complained about Chauvin, but sometimes patrons would complain about how he handled them. Santamaria said Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has contacted her to discuss Floyd's and Chauvin's employment. She has also reached out to Floyd's family, whose attorney Benjamin Crump said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he believes Chauvin and Floyd's El Nuevo Rodeo connection means Chauvin should face tougher charges than the third-degree murder and manslaughter counts that led to his arrest on May 29. "That is going to be an interesting aspect to this case and hopefully upgrading these charges to first-degree murder because we believe he knew who George Floyd was," Crump said. "We think that he had intent." Video taken by bystanders on May 25 showed Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes while Floyd pleaded, "I can't breathe." The criminal complaint against Chauvin said Floyd was "non-responsive" for the final two minutes and 53 seconds of time Chauvin was on top of him. Santamaria said she wants her former employee punished. "We have to make Derek Chauvin an example so that police around the country realize that it's not OK, and they're not going to get away with it and there will be repercussions.

    *** If *** Trump doesn't get another four years as president, the USA is royally fucked!!! The Trump replacement will be the usual globalist, bowing to their masters at a huge loss to the USA...Of course the replacement won't get shit done and will blame their lack of actions/results on Trump, the usual Washington DC shuffle...

    I see this year as "them" pulling out all the stops! Recently...Ukraine gate, virus gate, protests/terrorists, coming covid-20... Word is, Russia is buying all the hydroxychloroquine it can get its hands on! Turkey has been using hydroxychloroquine as well as India, with good results. The USA in under an organized attack from China and Russia. Soros is funding these "protests". China has been doing land invasion drills as they will soon invade Taiwan. "They" want President Trump gone and as we see, "they" will do anything to make that happen.

    https://nj1015.com/racial-attack-victim-dies-wheres-the-outrage/?trackback=fbshare_mobile_top&fbclid=IwAR09i5Fpsxb_oGxQirZucRbKmMKHos-k9ZZX8QDGW-xJ5JPnf1xSUpgbXd0 Where's the outrage???? Hatred and violence against anyone because of the immutable characteristics, race or gender or appearance, is considered a hate crime technically only the violence would constitute a hate crime — just hating them but not committing violence wouldn't . Violent hate crimes usually get broad coverage in the media. This one didn't, because he's a middle-aged white male. Jerry Wolkowitz was brutally attacked in the parking lot of his apartment complex in Freehold, according to police. He was attacked from behind, struck in the head and face and received horrendous injuries. The suspect then stole his car and ran him over with it, police said. Jamil Hubbard, 25 was later arrested at his house in Sayreville, where police found Wolkowitz' car. Investigators determined Hubbard, who is black, attacked the victim because of his race — and only because of his race. The two didn't know each other, police say. This happened back in May and almost no attention was paid to this horrendous story. Sadly, Jerry Wolkowitz died this week from his injuries, after almost 6 months in a vegetative state.
