from The Still Report:
by Ryan McMaken, Mises Institute:
Looting and arson have followed what began as peaceful protests in response to the apparent killing of George Floyd by Derek Chauvin, a now-former member of the Minneapolis Police Department.
But whatever was the spark that set off the current round of rioting in the Twin Cities area, it is clear that most property owners and residents will have to fend for themselves where riots have taken place. In other words, any unfortunate shopkeeper or resident who finds himself in the path of the rioters ought to just assume that police won’t be around to provide any protection from the mob.
For example, The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports:
from The Waking Times:
Wireless radiation is ubiquitous in the world today but had only gained widespread use several decades ago. With the quickness in which it has been rolled out and utilized, many people have started to question its long-term impact, both on the environment and our health.
While many exciting changes have occurred as a result of the technology, like wireless internet and cell phones, evidence suggests there may be some serious trade-offs as well.

When the U.S. market begins trading on Monday, the first day of June, it could be very interesting for the silver price. Why? Well, the silver price closed right at an important technical level on the last trading day of May. More importantly, the silver price closed just a few cents shy from the highs for the month. This could be very bullish for traders, depending on where silver trades during the Asian market on Sunday night.

I know, I know, we’re all tired of hearing about the story no one wants to talk about. We’re tired of the social engineering of the manipulated memes of “wear a mask” and “social distancing,” and of dirty doctors connected to the Baal and Malicious Gates Foundation trying to set policy for how, when, and under what circumstances churches may open and worship. I have a couple of words for said people: anathema fiat (and I mean that). And while it appears that all this Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan-Baal Gates virus narrative hysteria is running out of steam, and that “they” have cued up a new crisis de jour with the rioting, a little story stole in under the radar. Fortunately, the regular readers of this website who send me articles, spotted it and passed it along. In this case, it was L.G.R. and the article has me wondering all sorts of stuff.
by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
The murder of George Floyd in broad daylight by police was disturbing to watch. I don’t know how anyone can watch that and not feel the weight of the boot of police state we are in. Nonetheless, the mainstream media quickly went to race-baiting while other tyrant cops backed up the murderer by protecting his house from protestors.
We live under the boot of tyranny. The cops have chosen their side. They are siding with the ruling class elitists, the cabal, the politicians. They do not protect and serve us, they never will. They are getting paid with money stolen from us against our will to make sure the demands of the rulers are obeyed. That means they will commit any level of violence to keep us in line, as evidenced by the killing of George Floyd.
by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:
The only thing between several businesses and a bunch of people rioting is a couple of unnamed armed citizens.
As all hell breaks loose in Minneapolis over the lack of action taken against a police officer who killed a citizen on video, some self-titled “free Americans” helped store owners protect their property. They heard that the store owners had boarded up windows and were standing guard with machetes, and they went to help.
But if you think the men were there because they disagreed with the protests, you’d be incorrect. In a statement to Max Nesterak, a reporter for the Minnesota Reformer, the men said:
by Paula Bolyard, PJ Media:
St. John’s Episcopal Church at Lafayette Square in the District of Columbia burned Sunday night, having been set ablaze by rioters in another long night of nationwide protests over the killing of George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer dug his knee into the handcuffed man’s neck until he stopped breathing.
by Richard Moss, MD, American Thinker:
I took hydroxychloroquine for two years. A long time ago as a visiting cancer surgeon in Asia, in Thailand, Nepal, India, and Bangladesh. From 1987 to 1990. Malaria is rife there. I took it for prophylaxis, 400 milligrams once a week for two years. Never had any trouble. It was inexpensive and effective. I started it two weeks before and was supposed to continue it through my stay and four weeks after returning. But I stopped it after two years. I was worried about potential side effects of which there are many, as with all drugs right down to Tylenol and aspirin. These, however, are rare. At a certain point, I was prepared to take my chances with mosquitoes and plasmodium, and so I stopped.
by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:
Be careful what you wish for…. you might get it.
Minneapolis. The predicate looks obvious; a black man with a white cop’s knee on the back of his neck.
For several minutes while other cops stand around and watch, doing nothing to intervene. Which, incidentally, is an awful lot like what the video-taker did in Georgia (and got charged with Murder 2), right?
Floyd dies in an ambulance.
That looks like manslaughter or worse for every cop that was there.
