  1. Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · 5h The Lamestream Media is doing everything within their power to foment hatred and anarchy As long as everybody understands what they are doing, that they are FAKE NEWS and truly bad people with a sick agenda, we can easily work through them to GREATNESS!

  4. Someone Who Attended That Crowded Lake Of The Ozarks Pool Party Has The Coronavirus Missouri officials are asking the people who attended the Memorial Day weekend festivities to monitor themselves for potential COVID-19 symptoms......... https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/davidmack/coronavirus-lake-ozarks-pool-party-case-covid-19
  5. Far-Right Extremists Are Hoping to Turn the George Floyd Protests Into a New Civil War Armed extremists are showing up to protests and urging a “boogaloo” — code for civil war — online. ...........The “boogaloo” is code for impending civil war or violent confrontation with law enforcement, and that’s what they’re hoping to get out of the protests. Their main reason for being there is their antipathy toward law enforcement, and so they’re trying to position themselves as allies of Black Lives Matter protesters. They’ve made police brutality one of their central issues, which was explored at length in a Bellingcat article this week. Their approach to police brutality links the victims of the deadly standoff with federal agents at Ruby Ridge in 1992, to the victims of modern police brutality, including Floyd. But unlike the vast majority of protesters, they refuse to acknowledge the fact that police brutality is an issue that disproportionately impacts people of color. ............. In addition to their physical presence at the protests, the #boogaloo hashtag on social media has been flooded with memes in the last couple days egging on violence, and talking about how they hope this is the beginning of a civil war. ........ perhaps the most troubling of all are the hardcore “accelerationists” who are encouraging their neo-Nazi followers to go to the protests and carry out acts of violence against black people — all with the goal of “exacerbating the ethnic tensions” and sparking a “race war.” ......... https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/pkyb9b/far-right-extremists-are-hoping-to-turn-the-george-floyd-protests-into-a-new-civil-war
  6. Far-Right Infiltrators and Agitators in George Floyd Protests: Indicators of White Supremacists ".......Right-wing extremists and accelerationists The demographics of a largely white, young, and destructive group fit more with a movement known as accelerationists than Black Lives Matter. The accelerationists, if you have never heard the term, are an extreme subset of white nationalism whose goal is to bring about chaos and destruction. The basic tenet of accelerationism argues that since Western governments are inherently corrupt, the best (and only) thing supremacists can do is to accelerate the end of society by sowing chaos and aggravating political tensions. “Accelerationist ideas have been cited in mass shooters’ manifestos — explicitly, in the case of the New Zealand killer — and are frequently referenced in white supremacist web forums and chat rooms,” Zack Beauchamp explained........... The goal of accelerationism is to burn everything down and to use violence both to target enemies and to instigate an overt and extreme response from the government. Their strategy echoes Gustavo Gorriti’s writings about the Shining Path terrorist group that the movement’s “goal was to provoke blind, excessive reactions from the state… Blows laid on indiscriminately would also provoke among those unjustly or disproportionately affected an intense resentment of the government.” Similarly, accelerationists hope to “demolish the state apparatus that stands between them and a white-dominated future.” And the White Supremacists here could be of a different orientation too – organized to discredit the protesters with no clear or deliberate vision for greater political change in mind.............. even if the protests include outsider participation to foment chaos and spark an overreaction, it doesn’t mean that the driving sentiment launched by these protests should be minimized or ignored. If the protests are being infiltrated by police provocateurs, accelerationists, or other bad actors, we can expect a lot more violence in the lead-up to the 2020 election.

  7. Nicholas Burns @RNicholasBurns Chancellor Merkel refuses Trump’s invitation to a DC Summit. America’s ties to our allies in Europe are at their weakest point since NATO’s creation in 1949 . One of Trump’s most costly and needless mistakes. https://www.politico.eu/article/angela-merkel-rebuffs-donald-trump-invitation-to-g7-summit/
  8. Supreme Court denies California church's challenge to state restrictions "The Supreme Court issued a rare late-night ruling on Friday against a California church challenging the state’s stay-at-home order.In a 5-4 vote, Chief Justice John Roberts broke from other conservative justices to rule in favor of the state. The case was brought by the South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, Calif., which said Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) stay-at-home order ignored religious freedoms.Roberts noted in an opinion concurring in the unsigned ruling that the restrictions in place apply to nonreligious gatherings and therefore don’t pose a threat to religious liberties. “Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with the free exercise clause of the First Amendment,” Roberts wrote............ https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/500240-supreme-court-denies-california-churches-challenge-to-state
  9. Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid · 3h So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof? ================================================== Jonathan Capehart @CapehartJ · 3h The Attorney General failed to acknowledge the white nationalists involved in the protests, as warned by every Minnesota official who has spoken today.
  10. Isabella Rowling @Isabellarowling · 5h Replying to @LovesTheBern I can’t confirm this man’s identity by name, or if he actually returned to the police station, but he is certainly white. Inciting violence and property destruction has been a tactic used by racist groups for decades. They’re using the same old playbook......... see: https://twitter.com/LovesTheBern/status/1266171136330444800
  11. Nancy Duncan @ndduncan59 · 5h Last night in Louisville. Protesters protected an officer separated from his squad.
  12. Joy Reid @JoyAnnReid Remarkable info coming out of this presser: Gov. Tim Walls, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter and now MN attorney general Keith Ellison ALL alleging outside forces, domestic and possibly foreign, have post-Tuesday infiltrated the state, and are in organized fashion setting fire to historic businesses in communities of color, and causing mayhem. Ellison cited the widely circulating video of a white man in a gas mask holding an umbrella who was caught by protestors on video breaking windows. .............Mayor Carter said EVERY person arrested last night during the protests was from out of state. The governor said it is at least 80 percent, and that they will begin releasing the names. Dept of Safety Commissioner John Harrington says they are contract-tracing arrestees: He adds that white nationalist groups are posting messages promoting going to Minneapolis to “get our loot on” and cause mayhem. He says they will investigate those using the outrage over the murder of George Floyd as a “cover” for illegal activity............. Mayor Carter says they saw mayhem starters throw incendiary devices and then run behind legit protesters and “use them as a human shield.” He says being out after curfew allows yourself to be used........... see: https://twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/status/1266741059163389952
  13. Sat., 5-30 for THE ESSENTIALS: MOIRA SHEARER......... (again, not on daily schedule...........) ** 10:30 PM (ET) Man Who Loved Redheads, The ( 1954) ** British comedy that follows the romantic escapades of a married man, who as a young boy falls eternally in love with a redhead. He never forgets her and thus pursues extramarital affairs with redheads as the years progress. Dir: Harold French Cast: Moira Shearer , John Justin , Roland Culver . BW- 86 mins, ".....well-received in the U.S., with Variety deeming it "a light and wholly enjoyable British comedy" and The New York Times describing it as "a charming lark, light as a zephyr and just as welcome." The Times review continued: "Terrence Rattigan must have drunk copiously of that mysterious nectar that inspires some playwrights to weave bright comedy out of what is often flimsy, run-of-the-mill material... [His] situations and dialogue never lack for color and his lightweight dig at dalliance is a pleasure... In essaying the roles of the 'redheads,' Moira Shearer has developed acting talents that are both surprising and refreshing. The ballerina...moves gracefully from the role of a dewy-eyed 16-year-old, to a mincing Cockney, to a temperamental but tender Russian premire danseuse and, finally, to a smart manikin." see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/82748/Man-Who-Loved-Redheads-The/articles.html
