Any reporter who says the release of the Flynn transcripts shows anything other than actual damn good flat out lying. The sinister way we were told this phone call nothing of the sort. As a foreign polic guy...I’m pissed at how we were misled

Donald Trump threatened violence. Joe Biden offered empathy and promised “real police reform.”

“If we as human beings do not harm one another, but help one another, serve one another and be compassionate with one another, then we will have a peaceful world," the Dalai Lama shared following the death of George Floyd.

Excitement starts something. Execution completes it. Excitement feels good. Action is good.

“I heard the police chief talking to one protester, saying that ‘We’re giving you the streets,’ the chief said, ’But you can’t touch and confront our officers.’” - CNN’s Ed Lavandera reporting in Dallas as protests erupt over the death of George Floyd.

"If he was here, he would say that he's a man of God." George Floyd remembered by friends and family as hardworking "gentle giant."

Scoops of the Day

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

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.

Stunning. President Trump says nothing about Minnesota as the nation is on edge and leaves the Rose Garden without taking questions.

Coronavirus: Monkeys 'escape with COVID-19 samples' after attacking lab assistant

As a reporter, I’ve been detained in Iran, spied on in China, and followed and harassed in Russia. I’ve never had colleagues arrested and handcuffed while doing their job here in the US.

Let’s name all of them: CNN Correspondent Omar Jimenez, CNN Producer Bill Kirkos and CNN Photojournalist Leonel Mendez — ARRESTED by Minnesota State Police for lawfully doing their jobs. #CNN 

HAPPENING NOW: Atlanta#protests  in response to the #GeorgeFloyd  killing have turned chaotic as police in riot gear are called in:

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.

This is not accurate - our CNN crew identified themselves, on live television, immediately as journalists. We thank Minnesota @GovTimWalz  for his swift action this morning to aid in the release of our crew.

CNN crew has been released. Governor has apologized. For the record: arresting journalists is the kind of thing that happens in dictatorships and authoritarian regimes. We live in a democracy.


Scoops of the Week

You're not stealing that TV to honor George Floyd or protest police brutality. You're stealing that TV because you're a POS. And yes, of course the officers in that video should be prosecuted to the full extent of their lawbreaking.

I think a lot of Americans really don't know how much the American Revolution was precipitated by the Crown's abuse of the policing power against the colonists. It was *central*, and often led to unrest, riots, tarring and feathering and the like.

Andrea Jenkins, vice president of Minneapolis City Council, says George Floyd and Officer Chauvin worked at restaurant near Third Precinct. "They were coworkers for a very long time."

@jack  Read the letter and please do the right thing. If you agree, please retweet. #Pleasedeletethosetweets 

It is estimated that the Boston Tea Party, the riot that gave birth to this country, resulted in $1.7 million dollars (in today’s dollars) in property damage (tea). I’m just going to leave this right here for whoever needs to read it.

White America, don’t you EVER talk to me about riots. I know too much history. In that history, your rioting, slaughtering and massacring is epic.

BREAKING: President Trump will sign an executive order regarding social media companies tomorrow

‘It’s time to move on’ says government that’s worked harder to safeguard one man’s job in three days than it has to protect frontline workers and care home residents in three months.

T.J. Klausutis to @jack : "The President of the United States has taken something that does not belong to him — the memory of my dead wife — and perverted it for perceived political gain." He wants Twitter to delete Trump's tweets accusing @JoeNBC  of murder
