Breaking Scoops

@KarlousM  I passed the field sobriety test and the cop told me I was lucky because he really wanted to still arrest me but something else came up

"Carnage," "radicals," "overthrow the government": How Fox and other conservative media cover the protests

As thousands of demonstrators continue to protest the killing of George Floyd, health experts are worried that a second wave of COVID-19 infections could be sparked by the mass gatherings.

Thousands of protesters marched at a Black Lives Matter rally in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with crowds chanting "black lives matter" in solidarity with U.S. demonstrations following the death of George Floyd.

Justin Trudeau’s pause says a million words...

lol dunno, clem. Joe went on to talk with actual protestors without the US Army and without tear gas.

Here’s a list of more than 85 black-owned food businesses in Los Angeles

@RepMarkMeadows  Nadler's response: "He told the Committee that he could not find the time to testify because of that epidemic—but took the time to tour the peaceful protests at Lafayette Park just minutes before riot police fired tear gas into the crowd. "

JUST IN: Los Angeles County has issued another curfew order that begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday and runs through 6 a.m. Wednesday. It applies to all incorporated and unincorporated areas in the county.

Exclusive: President Trump moves military forces to near-wartime alert level in Washington D.C


Scoops of the Day

Here is what was happening outside the White House as President Trump was giving his Rose Garden address and saying he is an “ally of all peaceful protestors.” Peaceful protestors being tear gassed outside of the WH gates. I confirmed because I was teargassed along with them.

Today Trump declared war on the people of the United States, threatening states that if the did not request federal troops in their states, the troops would be deployed forcibly. That’s illegal, and it would invoke a civil war.

What would Jesus do? I’m guessing he wouldn’t target people with tear gas and rubber bullets so he could get a photo op holding a Bible upside down. Just a wild hunch.

"A riot is the language of the unheard." -Martin Luther King Jr.

ANOTHER harrowing account from ANOTHER priest working outside St. John’s who says they were run off by tear gas, etc before Trump’s photo op. Ends with a defiant decree: “I am now a force to be reckoned with.”

"I hope that my 13-year-old son grows up to be just as amazing as they are." Rahul Dubey opened his home to nearly 70 strangers overnight and sheltered them during D.C.'s curfew. He says our country needs people like THEM. FULL INTERVIEW:

Now that people are listening; we've got a message to all US federal troops. Do not engage in illegal orders. If you do engage in illegal orders there will be severe consequences. It is illegal for federal troops to enter states without Governor approval #Anomymous 

CNN last week, "How are we going to stop these sunbathers on California beaches?!!!" CNN this week, "Masses in the streets walking arm in arm. Good for them."


Scoops of the Week

Minnesota police arrest CNN reporter and camera crew as they report from protests in Minneapolis

Breaking: Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer just announced every single officers' body camera was NOT ACTIVATED during the shooting last night that resulted in DavidMcAtee’s death. Not one.

Trump is hiding in an underground bunker rn. No joke.

I’ve long worried how Trump would react when forced into a corner/ nervous/angry. For 3 years, he’s mostly gotten his way - passing though impeachment proceedings and various scandals; but times could be changing and reaching a head. The signs look dangerous.

It’s almost like, I don’t know, Americans been told several times a week for 3.5 years that reporters are the enemies of the people.

Houston Police Chief@ArtAcevedo : “Let me just say this to the President of the United States, on behalf of the police chiefs of this country: please, if you don’t have something constructive to say, keep your mouth shut.”

We’re drowning in videos of police abuse: cops cars running over protestors, an officer shoving a petite woman so hard she had a seizure, cops shooting rubber bullets at reporters on live TV. It’s clear who is escalating violence.

Amazing scene unfolding in Flint, Twp, Michigan. Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson has joined protesters in a peaceful march. Read More: @MichStatePolice  @gretchenwhitmer 

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people. #V 

If you think this is just about racism, you are wrong. You are being distracted. This is about a police state doing whatever the fuck it wants. Here and abroad. This is what everybody should be focusing on.
