Police brutality doesn’t belong to one race

Liberals see life quite differently.  I read this post after the subsequent riots over the murder of George Floyd: “Here’s an example of how white privilege sounds: You keep saying that “It’s horrible that an innocent black man was killed, but destroying property has to stop.”  Try saying “It’s horrible that property is being destroyed, but killing innocent black men has to stop.”  “You’re prioritising the wrong part.”

It sounds high-minded but actually it’s not.  It’s racist – white people (privileged) are portrayed as being more concerned with things than they are with black men (the victims) being killed.  I’ll never go along with that, for me it’s “dragon speak.”

The murder of George Floyd wasn’t about race, or “white privilege,” it was about police brutality.  I tried to point that out by referring to a previous incident in Minneapolis where in 2017 a white woman named Justine Damond was shot by a Somali cop.  I blogged about that at the time.  It took eight months for the police officer to be bought to justice, because of a “blue wall of silence” from the Minneapolis police.  At least the four cops in the latest Minneapolis police murder were dealt with immediately.

However I was shut down, accused of commenting on every political issue with “cherry picked evidence.”

I wasn’t allowed to continue and I didn’t get to mention that the year before Justine Damond was shot dead, Philando Castile, an innocent 32 year old black man was shot dead in 2016 by Jeronimo Yanez, a Hispanic police officer.

I stand on my opinion of police brutality – in these cases the police officers and victims are of all colours and backgrounds.

Quote about racism 1

I said that looting and rioting is not protest. Two days before, a retired St. Louis police captain has been killed by looters. His name was David Dorn.

Do you know which communities get harmed the most by this?  Black communities.

Businesses ruined by looters

Here’s another victim of rioting and looting.  He got away with his life but not his livelihood.  This man was just about to open after the Covid-19 lock-down, and then the riots happened.  He was at his business trying to clean up the mess left by the rioters, and while the cameras were there, looters came back for his safe.

He’d just started the business and invested his life savings into this sports bar.  Fortunately, good people came together and crowd funded to get him back on his feet.

Nothing changes.  Haters are going to hate, stirrers are going to stir, and looters are going to loot.  Tucker Carlson reported:  “Underneath it all, this violence doesn’t have much to do with the behaviour of the Minneapolis Police Department.  For evidence, watch this tape from the Los Angeles Riots in 1992.  It was 30 years ago.  It could have been shot this afternoon.”

Criminal mob destroys businesses & neighbourhoods, Tucker Carlson shows them the mirror

It’s heart-breaking.  You’ll see an elderly black business owner crying, “It’s not right!  “It’s not right!  It’s not right what y’all doing!  I came from the ghetto too!  Same as all of you kids.  Why are you destroying my business?  Why are you destroying my truck?  Why are you stealing my computer?  I tried to make it!  Can’t you understand that?”

Tucker Carlson: “It’s not a racial dispute.  The old man is fighting to defend civilisation.  The young men are fighting to tear it down.  And those are the battle lines, they always are.  Which side have our leaders taken?

The rioters in Minneapolis and other places act as if they’re allowed to loot and burn – and in fact they are allowed.  No-one stops them.  We’re told the crimes of the mob are “the punishment we deserve.”  That’s their argument, and many seem to buy it.  The game is rigged.”


Racism

It seems victim roles are automatically assigned by skin colour – white for privilege and black for victim.  It’s patronising and a lazy, slack, stupid way of looking at things – and it plays into the hands of the globalists, the billionaires who want to control us.

People of all skin colours experience racism.  It’s been that way ever since the Tower of Babel.  For instance, did you know that Black people experience discrimination in China, and the Chinese have experienced discrimination elsewhere?  It’s an unfortunate part of the human condition that Jesus came to save us from.  It won’t be overcome when we’re all pointing fingers at each other.   What would Jesus do?  Wouldn’t He say we all matter?

McDonald’s refused to serve black people in China and blamed coronavirus

Are the media stirring things up?

In Auckland, people went to a “Black lives matter march,” making a mockery of all the Covid-19 restrictions, especially distancing.  Who stirred them up – the media?  Why aren’t people protesting about China’s treatment of the citizens of Hong Kong?  Or why aren’t they protesting the violence being done against whites in South Africa?  Have they not heard about that?   Black violence in South Africa is not reported in NZ – we only get the syndicated stuff from the American news networks.

Just be aware of the media’s role in all of this, and watch for articles about “racism.”  United we stand and divided we fall.  Who is doing the stirring?  And why?  Who are the shadowy figures trying to divide and conquer along racial lines?

Hotep Nation: “Anyway, black lives matter is a front organization for the globalists. They are here to destroy so that the powers that be can gain more power. For example, they’ll complain about police brutality and the powers that be will provide the solution of body cameras which equals more Orweillian “big brother is watching” surveillance. To chant that phrase gives them power. I do not say black lives matter because that is redundantly rhetorical.”

All-Lives-matter


To say All Lives Matter or Black Lives Matter is to subject yourself to political correctness. If you say All Lives Matter you will be politically correct with a white conservative crowd but anger blacks and liberals. To say Black Lives Matter is to be politically correct among blacks but offend white conservatives.  Source: HotepNation

Black men speak out

This former officer Brandon Tatum is going viral for delivering this incredible response.  He addresses both black and whites.

The Hodge Twins: “Liberals – you pushing that lie, it’s to make you feel better.  You’re not helping them.  You’re digging that hole of oppression deeper and deeper.  They want to keep them on the Democrat plantation.  Most blacks killed by their own race.  Everyone knows black lives matter.”

How a controversial study found that police are more likely to shoot whites, not blacks

Are more whites killed by the police than blacks?

The notion that police are involved in some mass shooting of black men is not at all true and the numbers back that up. Here are the FBI stats: Table 21

Lives matter

What Egypt thought of Obama

Here’s a bit of (black) humour. It’s Obama prattling on about “climate change being their biggest national security threat.”  Seriously?  The weather?  It’s just as well he’s going.  I hope the US can bounce back from him.

Here’s what the media in Egypt thought.  It’s refreshing after the sanitised, air-brushed version of president Obama that we’re presented with in the news.

Here are some of the comments:

“Is he insane?”

“He’s on drugs?”

“What do you expect from an affirmative action president?  He never served in the military, nor worked a day in his life.”

“Did you see that video of him working out?  My daughter has bigger biceps than him!”

“America is getting weaker by the day under this president.”

“Look what he did in Libya.  It’s all part of his plan.

“Your enemies no longer fear you. And your allies no longer trust you!”

The gratuitous U.S. government grab for non-U.S. assets, and that’s a FACTA

FACTA cartoonI believe our birth right in the West is to be free. The money we earn and our personal information should be our own.  The place where I’ve found that our government thinks otherwise is at the bank.

I first noticed the erosion of our rights in the early 1990’s, when the NZ government wanted to link our IRD (tax) number with our bank accounts.  It was optional, but if you didn’t give the bank your IRD number, any interest earned on your bank account would be taxed at 33%.  When I told the bank teller that they couldn’t have my IRD number the teller said “It’s coming you know.  You can’t fight it.”  I replied, “Well if everyone in the country has this attitude, you will be right!”

She was right.  Within a year, our government, wholeheartedly following it’s money master’s neo-liberal economic doctrine, sold that NZ owned Post Bank to a foreign bank.  The bank in the shopping centre soon disappeared, along with her job, and bank fees averaging $28 per month were introduced.  The government also upgraded our tax legislation – granting the IRD scary powers, exempting it from our privacy laws.

So that was back then.  Today the IRD can just reach into our private bank accounts and take our money if we don’t pay.  I discovered that last year on one of their forms.

FACTA

FACTA Bank cartoonAnyway, fast forward from the early 1990’s to late 2014, when I was at the bank filling out a deposit slip; and I overheard a man opening a bank account at a nearby desk being asked if he was an American citizen.  Then I heard the bank staff member explain they have to ask the question because of “FACTA”, a new law.

That got my attention.  I am married to a man who is an American, even though he left the US as a child. When I got back to the office I told him about this new banking law.  When we looked up FACTA, we were horrified.

The US government regards anyone who has been born in the states as a taxable resource.  Citizenship Based Taxation, FATCA, is designed to serve as a capital control; Human Capital.  The US, along with Eritrea, does Citizenship Based Taxation.  Eritrea was recently condemned by the UN (Resolution 2023) for doing it.

Take the case of London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson.  He was born in the USA but returned to England with his parents at the age of 5.  The U.S. government forced him to pay the capital gains tax on the sale of his Islington home.  He has never lived in America, but that means nothing to the IRS. They are hunting everyone everywhere.

I was thinking through the ramifications of FACTA for us;
What happens when we want to save for our retirement?
What happens if we want to open a new bank account?
What happens if we sold my house that I bought and freeholded before I met my husband?  Would the IRS be alerted if the money went into our joint bank account?
What happens to my information?  I am a non-US citizen, and my personal data would be sent to the US with no privacy protections.
It doesn’t matter that we already pay taxes in NZ.  The only way around all of this is for our accounts to be separated.

The form that US tax subjects have to fill out is a FBAR form.  If you get any information wrong on the form the IRS can substitute penalties for taxes. I’m sure you get the drift.

We decided that if asked about my husband’s citizenship we’ll answer truthfully that he is a NZ citizen and let his US passport rot in a drawer.

If the letter from the US government does come, my husband said he would renounce his US citizenship.  I told him he would be better to “relinquish” it, in case he ever wants to visit the US.

noo_zealandWe were appalled at the privacy invasion.  New Zealand has agreed to hand over our bank account details to a foreign country!  Our privacy laws are useless, they haven’t been overhauled in years, and IRD with its massive powers abrogates them.  This signifies the unacceptable encroachment of the government into the lives of every citizen – both here and in the US.

More about this here:

A New Zealand government didn’t want the political fallout which would come from breaching our privacy legislation, so they used IRD, being immorally above that privacy legislation, as a backdoor for US to spy on its own citizens.  If they did this once, why won’t a future government find it convenient to use the Teflon IRD on other issues that might be a bit embarrassing politically? Answer: there’s nothing stopping any government doing this. It’s the premise of this blog that IRD and its huge powers, is where the rubber meets the road to our total serfdom. All the Left protesting against GCSB, NSA and PRISM, what’s the difference, again, please?

Just to add insult to injury – the cost of enforcing US tax laws should be borne by the USA and FATCA, but the cost has been passed on to our spineless NZ government.

FATCA_Uncle_SamThe US government treats its citizens like a bankrupt bully with a gambling addiction.  It’s got it’s children, and their children’s children into debt; and now it’s raiding their piggy banks.  This is what it looks like when the financial elite get control.  My advice is protect your wealth and your assets from them.
