Black Suspect Accused of Two Day Long Shooting Spree Was Targeting White Males, According to Police
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] Justin Tyran Roberts, a 39-year-old black man, was targeting white males in his two day long shooting spree that spanned two states, according to police.

Roberts is accused of shooting and wounding five people in Georgia and Alabama over the weekend.

Detective Brandon Lockhart testified on Monday that Roberts told police that "white men had picked on him and wronged him for all his life," according to a report from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.

"Basically, he explained throughout his life, specifically white males had taken from him, and also what he described as military-looking white males had taken from him," Detective Lockhart said.

The police do not believe that there was any connection between Roberts and the victims, all of whom are expected to recover.

The five shootings took place during three separate assaults in Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama.

Roberts appeared in court on Monday for his preliminary hearing regarding one of the incidents where he shot a man in the back who was entering his vehicle.

Lockhart testified that Roberts said, "I had to have him," about the victim, according to the Ledger-Enquirer’s report.

"Roberts also claimed that such men were ’shooting at him in a wooded area with a slingshot,’ and the wounds had infected his skin, Lockhart testified. But he said police saw no injuries to substantiate that," the report explains.

The public defender representing Roberts has requested that he undergo a mental health evaluation and claims he was suffering from "delusions."

"The officer’s testimony has demonstrated that Mr. Roberts is having delusions and a disconnect from reality," King told the judge.

Washington man accused of shooting thief, dragging him behind truck while still alive: report
[FoxNews] Campbell was charged with second-degree murder.

A Washington state man is accused of firing two rounds into a person attempting to steal his truck’s catalytic converter and then dragging the victim, who was still alive, and leaving him in a nearby field to die.

King 5, citing court documents, reported that the incident occurred at about 3:45 a.m. Saturday. Michael Scott Campbell, 54, told Lakewood police that he was sleeping and roused by someone trying to steal the car part.

Campbell, who has been charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping, allegedly told police that he noticed two legs sticking out from under the truck and fired two shots "straight down."

The would-be thief attempted to get back to his own car but could not make it and collapsed. Campbell allegedly told police that the individual was still talking when he tied his hands to the ball hitch of the F-150.

The report said the shooting occurred in a parking lot of a business. One witness told police that he saw the truck dragging some kind of object. Officers said the victim was dragged about 400 feet.

The would-be thief was still alive when dropped off in the field, charging documents said, according to Q13Fox.com.

#3  While I prefer Mad Max justice to courts, a catalytic converter, or even a whole vehicle seems too much to kill a man over.

#5  If I understand, catalytic converter theft is an absolute plague right now, and law enforcement overall doesn't seem very interested in it.

Campbell should have just blamed the truck. "Yeah, we saw the truck dragging something, but NOBODY WAS DRIVING!"

Surprised they even found a witness. I resident that aware at 4am is a neighborhood getting targeted.

#10  Stealing a catalytic converter involves cutting through two metal exhaust pipes. You could do it slowly with a hacksaw, but a battery-powered angle grinder or sawzall is a whole lot quicker. Either way is pretty noisy. And a bit unusual at 4am.

Expensive NYC School insults white women
[NYPOST] An ex-top trustee of Manhattan’s elite Spence School says she yanked her daughter out over her growing disgust with its racial indoctrination — capped by a class video that "tarred and feathered’’ white women.

Hispanic tech exec Gabriela Baron fired off a scorched-earth letter to the prestigious Upper East Side institution last week seething that the video — shown to her eighth-grade daughter and classmates on graduation day — "openly derides, humiliates and ridicules white women.

"They sat there in their graduation dresses while the white mothers of the white students — many of whom volunteer, donate, call, email and do whatever the school asks of them — were tarred and feathered in a video their teacher showed them. While their white female teachers were mocked,’’ Baron raged in the missive, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.

Baron said the footage, featuring racially charged comedian Ziwe Fumudoh,
... Ziwerekoru Fumudoh, child of Nigerian immigrants, graduate of the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, Northwestern University, and internships at Comedy Central and The Onion. Her idea of comedy was to get her white friends to come on her YourTube show and bait them in to unintentionally saying racist things, even if she had to edit the film to achieve the desired effect...
Wossa modda widdat? I used to do dat wid ma frien's alla time. Back when I had frien's.
was just another indication of what she and her husband "see happening at Spence (and many other schools in NYC).

"Over the last several years my husband and I have grown increasingly concerned about certain trends at Spence, including what we believe is a de-emphasis of academic rigor and a single-minded focus on race, diversity and inclusion that is now driving the School and everything that goes on within its walls,’’ wrote Baron, the daughter of Cuban immigrants colonists.

Spence is among a slew of posh "woke" private schools in New York City that have come under fire for allegedly putting political correctness before actual learning and common-sense.

Baron — who confirmed to The Post on Tuesday that she sent the letter — is an alum of Spence, which includes actresses Gwyneth Paltrow
...Hollywood interchangeable blonde and Eva Braun taste-alike, who's convinced herself that it would be wonderful if Obama were given all the power that he needs. She was married to a guitar player in a rock band, but now she's becoming long in the tooth so he's moved on to somebody else...
and Kerry Washington and Michael Nanny Mike Bloomberg
...former Republican mayor of New York. He tried to take the credit for Rudy Giuliani's actions in the wake of the 9-11 attacks. He was known as Nanny Bloomberg for his war on 32-ounce Slurpees. Nanny was a candidate for the Dem presidential nomination in 2020. He won big in American Samoa, not so big anywhere else. He was born on Valentine's day, 1942, which makes him 79.25782 years old, which is pretty ripe. Mike has lots of money, some of which he spends on grass roots organizations pushing for common sense gun laws along the same lines as his common sense Slurpee regulations...
’s daughter Georgina among its graduates. The K-12 school charges more than $57,400 a year per student.

"The blatantly racist video,’’ shown during her daughter’s last middle-school history class was of Fumudoh’s premiere episode of her Showtime talk series "Ziwe,’’ which aired last month, Baron said.

It featured sit-downs with writer Fran Lebowitz, women’s rights icon Gloria Steinem — and four white women named Karen.

The caption to introduce Lebowitz read, "Author, Public Speaker, White Woman.’’ At one point, Fumudoh remarked to her, "I believe that you are not concerned with how annoying white women can be.’’

The host also said, "What percentage of white women do you hate? And there is a right answer."

Fumudoh asked Steinem how many black friends she has, then read her obscene lyrics from the rap song "WAP" by Cardi B
...the eminent American political analyst and entertainer, noted for her dignified performance at the Grammy awards and her well-reasoned commentary on race relations...
and Megan Thee Stallion and wanted to know whether the activist felt "empowered’’ by them.

Before the "Karens" took the stage, Fumudoh read what she said was an Urban Dictionary meaning for their name, which included "obnoxious, angry and entitled, often racist, white women.’’

At the end of the segment, Fumudoh gave the women temporary tattoos that said, "Karen & Proud.’’

"It astounds me that a Spence faculty member felt comfortable showing this to students and thought it was acceptable to do so," Baron said of the mocking, cringe-worthy footage.

"Had the video derided and ridiculed Asian women, Black women or Hispanic women, the Spence community would declare with one voice that it was blatantly racist," said the mom, executive vice president of strategy at the tech software firm KLDiscovery, according to her LinkedIn page.

Two Resignations From Major Medical Journal After Staffers Question 'Systemic Racism'
[AMGREATNESS] Two high-ranking employees have been forced to resign from a well-known American medical journal after they publicly criticized the notion of "systemic racism," according to Campus Reform.

The resignations came from Deputy Editor Edward Livingston and Editor-in-Chief Howard Bauchner, of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Livingston submitted his resignation to Bauchner, then his superior, in March after Livingston appeared on a podcast where he stated that "no physician is racist," a sentiment that was repeated in a tweet from the American Medical Association (AMA) promoting the podcast.

Livingston’s comments were criticized by far-left activists, including a black female doctor with the AMA named Aletha Maybank, who called his comments "wrong, absolutely appalling, and at its very core...a demonstration of structural and institutional racism." Maybank provided no evidence whatsoever to prove that Livingston was a racist, or that "structural racism" is even real.

Bauchner issued an apology on behalf of Livingston’s comments, declaring that he was "profoundly disappointed in myself for the lapses that led to the publishing of the tweet and podcast." Although Bauchner admitted that he "did not write or even see the tweet, or create the podcast," he was nevertheless "ultimately responsible for them" as the editor-in-chief of the publication.

Subsequently, Bauchner announced on June 1st that he would be resigning by the end of the month, after having served as editor-in-chief since 2011. He added that he had "always supported the AMA’s commitment to dismantling structural racism in the institutions of American medicine...and look forward to personally contributing to that work going forward."

A branch of Greta Thunberg's climate-change movement disbanded after declaring itself a 'racist, white-dominated space'
[MSN] A branch of Greta "Pippi" Thunberg
...an autistic sixteen year old Swedish expert on climate change...
's School Strike 4 Climate movement in New Zealand disbanded on Saturday, saying it "has been a racist, white-dominated space."

The SS4C Auckland announced its disbandment on Facebook. The group said its organizers had "avoided, ignored, and tokenized BIPOC voices and demands," especially those of Pacific Islanders and Māori individuals.

"Going forward, we will only be using our social media to uplift BIPOC-led climate justice spaces in Auckland," the organization said. "We apologize for the hurt, burnout, and trauma caused to many BIPOC individuals, including current and past members, as well as BIPOC-led groups. We also apologize for the further trauma caused by our slow action to take responsibility."

The blue state exodus: How Americans fled New York and California for Republican states of Arizona, Idaho and the Sun Belt to escape lockdowns and skyrocketing crime
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • People fled New York, Illinois and California for Texas, Idaho, Arizona and The Carolinas according to data from moving company North American Van Lines

  • The states of Florida, Texas, and Colorado also saw a greater influx of movers

  • Despite the pandemic the company claim people continued to move at rates that were comparable to 2019

  • The data showed that states that have much less densely populated areas were a big draw for people looking to relocate amid the COVID-19 pandemic

  • The move away from the likes of New York was driven, in part, by an increased fear of living in densely populated cities and rising crime amid the pandemic

-Short Attention Span Theater-
NSA Spy Released From Prison & NYT Double Speak Exposed
Remember Reality Winner?
The Ex-Ft. Gordon NSA worker caught leaking classified documents in 2017.

Well She is getting out prison today.
An she only served 4 yrs of her 5 yr federal prison sentence that she received in August 2018 for violation of the US Espionage Act.

She illegally released TS-SCIF NOFORN materials about possible Russian interference in the 2016 elections to a news outlet.
She leaked a classified report on Russian hacking, so this really should be Page 3: Non-War on Terror.
A news group, which ☺ bungled ☺ it like the Keystone Cops, in its handling and even helped in exposing her. Documents, which were later used in part during the Russia/Trump Coup attempt to help lay Adam Sh*ts false narrative.

But read deep into the NYT article.
It accidentally provides a hidden gem of double speak. In going after Trump/Russia in 2016-2018, it pretty much stated National Elections could have been or was compromised by Foreign Governments (Russia/China).

Something the NYT, now that Biden is in, strongly denies could have ever happen in 2020.

BTW: Remember how Trump compared her 5 year sentence to Hillary's slap on the wrist by the Jeff Session run DOJ? When Hillary was caught "inadvertently" releasing similar data?

Who has the most nuclear weapons: How many do India, China, Pak have?
Good to know, though not directly connected to the War on Terror.
[OneIndia] China, Pakistain and India have 350, 165 and 156 nuclear warheads respectively as of January this year and the three countries appear to be expanding their nuclear arsenals, a study by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said on Monday. It also said as per its assessment, Russia and the US together possess over 90 percent of the estimated 13,080 global nuclear weapons.

There are nine countries in the world that have nuclear weapons: the US, Russia, the UK, La Belle France, China, India, Pakistain, Israel and North Korea
...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche...
"China is in the middle of a significant modernisation and expansion of its nuclear weapon inventory, and India and Pakistain also appear to be expanding their nuclear arsenals," the study said. It has been more than a year since the military standoff between the armies of India and China erupted in eastern Ladakh on May 5, 2020, during which there were fatalities on both sides for the first time in 45 years. India and China have made limited progress in achieving disengagement at the Pangong lake area while negotiations for similar steps at other friction points remained deadlocked.

The SIPRI''s study also talked about the fissile raw material stocks that the countries have for their nuclear weapons. "The raw material for nuclear weapons is fissile material, either highly enriched uranium (HEU) or separated plutonium...India and Israel have produced mainly plutonium, and Pakistain has produced mainly HEU but is increasing its ability to produce plutonium," it said.

China, La Belle France, Russia, the UK and the US have produced both HEU and plutonium for use in their nuclear weapons, the study mentioned. "The governments of India and Pakistain make statements about some of their missile tests but provide no information about the status or size of their (nuclear) arsenals," it noted. Approximately 2,000 of the total 13,080 global nuclear warheads in the world are "kept in a state of high operational alert", said the study mentioned in the SIPRI Yearbook 2021.

It also said Saudi Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. Fifteen of the nineteen WTC hijackers were Saudis, and most major jihadi commanders were Saudis, to include Osama bin Laden. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman quietly folded that tent in 2016, doing terrible things to the guys running it, and has since been dragging the kingdom into the current century...
, India, Egypt, Australia and China were the five largest importers of major arms in the world between 2016 and 2020.

One thing is guaranteed. There would be only one use. The entire world would unite to prevent another, leaving an attacked nuke state with no ability to reciprocate. And then for the next 70+ years everyone would talk about how terrible it all was.

-War on Police-
Footage shows cops doing NOTHING after innocent people are shot during Atlanta drive-by because mayor has banned police pursuits: Residents of affluent Buckhead say its a warzone and demand to secede
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • A video shared to Tucker Carlson Tonight shows police cars passing by a drive-by shooting in Atlanta

  • It shows people walking past a dark-colored van parked on the side of the road, when a white car starts shooting at the van, with one shot piercing the vehicle

  • In January, the Atlanta Police Department established new rules for car chases

  • The rules state that officers can only engage in a pursuit if they believe the fleeing suspect has committed or attempted to commit a 'forcible felony'

  • Meanwhile, crime rates have increased over the past few months

5 Polio Vaccination Campaign Workers Killed in Nangarhar
[ToloNews] Five workers in a polio
...Poliomyelitis is a disease caused by infection with the poliovirus. Between 1840 and the 1950s, polio was a worldwide epidemic. Since the development of polio vaccines the disease has been largely wiped out in the civilized world. However, since the vaccine is known to make Moslem pee-pees shrink and renders females sterile, bookish, and unsubmissive it is not widely used by the turban and automatic weapons set. Currently the disease is only found in Pakistain and Afghanistain...
vaccination campaign were killed and four more were maimed in five separate attacks in Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
province on Tuesday morning, said Ataullah Khogyani, front man for the provincial governor.

The attacks were perpetrated by unknown gunnies in Sorkh Rod and Khogyani districts and the city of Jalalabad, Khogyani said.

He said that two of the maimed are at death's door.

Khogyani said that special security measures were not provided to the campaign workers even though security agencies have been asked to cooperate with health workers.

So far, no group has grabbed credit for the attacks.

This comes as three women working for the polio vaccination campaign were killed in two separate attacks in the city of Jalalabad in Nangarhar province on March 30.

Figures by UNICEF show that 56 new cases of poliovirus were reported in Afghanistan in 2020.

The campaign is expected to cover 9.6 million children under five years of age in the country.
According to sources, this is not the first time that vaccinators have been targeted in Afghanistan.

It had also been reported that vaccinators were killed in Ghor, Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
and Nimroz Provinces.
From An Nahar:
The polio workers were bumped off in three different locations over two hours, in a "co-ordinated attack", Nangarhar police front man Farid Khan said.

"This is the work of the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
, targeting health workers to deprive people of polio vaccines," he said.

Health ministry front man Osman Taheri confirmed the attacks.

The Taliban denied responsibility.

Polio has been eradicated across the world apart from Afghanistan and neighbouring Pakistain, where distrust of vaccines and eradication campaigns is rife.

Officials said two vaccinators were killed and one maimed in Tuesday's attacks in Khogyani district, while two were killed in Surkhrod.

In the other attack, three vaccinators were maimed in the quiet provincial capital, Jalalabad.

The vaccination drive in the province had now been halted, another health official told AFP.

Feds Investigating Chinese Spies' Return to US Ahead of COVID Travel Ban
[Free Beacon] Intelligence officials are investigating why suspected Chinese spies returned to the United States on student and work visas at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to internal government documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

Hundreds of Chinese nationals are the subject of a federal probe after law enforcement officials flagged their travel at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chinese nationals returned to the United States earlier than expected in January 2020, often having modified their travel plans. Then-president Donald Trump signed an executive order restricting entry from non-citizens and residents from China on Jan. 31, 2020.

The episode is recounted in an internal report that circulated among various national security and law enforcement agencies on June 3. That report surmises that the Chinese students returned to the United States earlier than expected in order to avoid future travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The United States recorded its first COVID-19 case on January 21, the same day a Chinese scientist said the virus could spread person to person.

"The team examined 58,000 inbound Chinese F/J visa holders in the [Passenger Name Record] database and identified 396 individuals whose return travel was [scheduled] after January 2020 but had returned in January 2020," the report reads.

Retail Sales Tank As Prices Continue To Skyrocket Due To Inflation
[Federalist] Retail sales crashed and wholesale prices skyrocketed in May following unprecedented federal spending binges, the U.S. Department of Labor reported on Tuesday. Although most government-mandated lockdowns and school closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic ended months ago, the U.S. economy has been slow to bounce back.

New data from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics released on Tuesday show that massive federal spending and loose monetary policies from the Federal Reserve have resulted in significant increases in inflation across nearly all goods, services, and sectors of the economy — the biggest inflation spike in 13 years. The latest release shows that producer prices spiked by 6.6 percent during the last year, with prices increasing a whopping 0.8 percent over the last month alone
(10.0% yearly run rate).
The rise in producer prices mirrors that of consumer prices, measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which have increased 5 percent over the last 12 months.

At the same time, retail sales also crashed, falling 1.3 percent over the last month, according to data released on Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Amazon To Bring Cashierless Checkout Tech To 'Full-Size Grocery' Store
[DAILYWIRE] In the latest setback for those seeking an increase in the federal minimum wage, Amazon announced that it will be opening its first full-size and fully operational grocery store, complete with "cashierless checkout technology" in Washington state.
But anybody that's left will be making $18 an hour.
This "Amazon Fresh" store will utilize what the Big Tech giant has dubbed, "Just Walk Out" technology, which means that you do not have to stop at a checkout register to pay for your items. Upon entry to the store, customers scan a QR code with their Amazon account details, while the store infrastructure tracks what is selected from the shelves. The customer can then leave, and Amazon will bill their account automatically.

"The new store will also allow for customers to use Amazon One to scan their palm or insert a credit or debit card linked to their Amazon account to enter the store," CNET reported.

According to the outlet, the "Amazon Fresh" store will open on June 17 at the marketplace at Factoria Square Mall in Bellevue, Washington. "It’ll also have Amazon package pickup and returns, Alexa kiosks and the Amazon One payment system, as well as traditional checkout registers if you want to pay for your groceries in the usual way," CNET added.

"Just Walk Out technology is made possible by a combination of computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning, and adds convenience to customers’ grocery shopping experience by giving them the option to come in, pick up what they want, and skip the checkout when they’re done," Amazon explained in a statement. "Anyone shopping at the new Amazon Fresh store can take advantage of the technology, which connects to customers’ Amazon account or credit card. Customers are prompted at the store’s entry gates to choose if they want to use Just Walk Out shopping or the traditional checkout lanes."

Home Front: Politix
Senate unanimously passes a bill making Juneteenth a federal holiday
(CNN)The Senate unanimously passed a resolution on Tuesday establishing June 19 as Juneteenth National Independence Day, a US holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.
Not a bad thing to commemorate.
The legislation has gained momentum since the massive Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd last year and the Democrats' takeover of the White House and Congress.

But Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson blocked the bill in 2020, saying that the day off for federal employees would cost US taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. Johnson dropped his objection this week despite his concerns, paving the way for the bill's passage in the Senate.

"Although I strongly support celebrating Emancipation, I objected to the cost and lack of debate," said Johnson in a statement. "While it still seems strange that having taxpayers provide federal employees paid time off is now required to celebrate the end of slavery, it is clear that there is no appetite in Congress to further discuss the matter."

The measure needs to pass the House and be signed by President Joe Biden to become law. On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger announced in Galveston, Texas, the end of slavery in accordance with President Abraham Lincoln's 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

#8  The Emancipation Proclamation, or Proclamation 95, was a presidential proclamation and executive order issued by United States President Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862, during the Civil War. The Proclamation read:

That on the first day of January in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.[2]
On January 1, 1863, the Proclamation changed the legal status under federal law of more than 3.5 million enslaved African Americans in the secessionist Confederate states from enslaved to free. As soon as a slave escaped the control of the Confederate government, either by running away across Union lines or through the advance of federal troops, the person was permanently free. Ultimately, the Union victory brought the proclamation into effect in all of the former Confederacy.

On factual historical note.
The CSA was already a seperate nation.
So the US union presidents proxlamaition was equal China telling us to pay Reparations.

It had zero legal standing until the north invaded and defeated the CSA.

Plus the north still at least 4 slave states fighting under the union banner the whole.

So the end of the war was the actual freeing of slaves... and even then only after a constitutional amendment about 2+ years later around 1867.

#11  Twenty years a slave,
was Mister 113th.
An upright good man,
he dreamed of only
respect, freedom and oh!
Maybe an Amendment 15th?

His wishes are dust,
for the wrong brain trust,
got wind of a great hustle.
And fresh off their boats,
with dubious quotes,
they began to demand... a teenth.

[a teenth is a 16th of an ounce in street, the smallest quantity of drugs, given out as samplers]

#2  STD rates were 1-2 times higher for Hispanic and Latino populations than non-Hispanic white people. Rates for American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander populations were 3-5 times higher than their white counterparts.

Data also showed STD rates were 5-8 times higher among Black populations.

White privilege is everywhere?

#3  Yes, I blame Donald Trump, the internets, church camp meetings, failure to follow primal instincts, and the establishment of strong, monogamous family units.
