Just Make It Illegal to Arrest Blacks: to Honor the Memory of George Floyd, Social Justice Advocates Urge Big Box Retailers to Re-Think Calls to Police Over Shoplifting and “Low-Level” Crimes

by Paul Kersey, DC Clothesline:

In honor of the memory of George Floyd, those peddling social justice reform are advocating nonviolent criminal acts such as shoplifting from big box stores should no longer be a criminal offense. [Retailers urged to re-think police calls for low-level crimes after George Floyd’s death, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, April 12, 2021]:

George Floyd died in police custody after a corner store clerk reported he had used a fake $20 bill, a nonviolent offense so low-level that police don’t usually take people to jail for it.

Now, as the trial over his death continues to unfold, criminal justice reform experts and diversity specialists are hoping the case will prompt retailers — from small businesses to major chains — to reassess how they treat Black and other minority customers and how they can handle loss prevention cases more equitably.

AS BORDER CRISIS WITH RUSSIA ESCALATES, UKRAINE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY BYPASSES BIDEN AND CALLS ON EMMANUEL MACRON TO BRING PEACE TO SITUATION

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The massive build-up of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine has sparked new tensions in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have been battling pro-Russian separatists since 2014. “Ukraine’s sovereignty is under threat,” Macron’s office said heading into the talks Friday, adding: “All our work is aimed at avoiding an escalation and defusing tensions.” Zelensky’s meeting with the leaders of France and Germany, who have been mediators in the conflict since 2015, comes as Ukraine accuses Russia of threatening to destroy it.

COVID vaccine deaths: the numbers point to a catastrophe

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

A new May 4 report by independent researcher, Virginia Stoner, reveals US vaccine-death figures. The report is titled, “The Deadly Covid-19 Vaccine Coverup.”

Stoner uses the US government’s own numbers.

Here are key quotes from her report:

“There has been a massive increase in deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) this year. That’s not a ‘conspiracy theory’, that’s an indisputable fact.”

What The Plandemic Can Do For Our Evolution

by Corey Lynn, Corey’s Digs:

I was never labelled as a conspiracy theorist because my position as a newspaper editor gave me license to call out the consensus reality — and my stock market advice always made people money, which gave my other musings credence. That said, I am no longer a conspiracy theorist because the people in the stores with plastic bags over their heads and the ones jogging in the countryside wearing formaldehyde and Teflon-infused surgical masks have superseded me in the crackpot stakes.

This plandemic saved my life. I had been commuting 60 miles a day; getting up at 4am and returning home at 10pm. When you’ve sat on a cramped and stuffy coach for three hours in heavy traffic for the second time that day, after a long spell in an office, you start to entertain notions of spontaneous Ascension or becoming a dry-stone waller. After the first lockdown, the office told everyone to stay home and my daughter was home too, so it was the best of both worlds — just as I was about to crack. The plandemic was easy street in comparison with navigating far-off cities on three hours’ sleep a night.

Intel & TSMC on Chip Shortage: After Blowing $84 Billion on Share Buybacks since 2011 and Now Woefully Behind, Intel Clamors for $50 Billion in Subsidies for US Chip Industry

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

“We will not be anywhere near as focused on buybacks going forward as we have in the past”: Intel’s new CEO.

US semiconductor manufacturing has declined to where it is now only 12% of the world’s total, said Intel’s new CEO Pat Gelsinger in an interview with CBS on 60 Minutes. “And anybody who looks at supply chain says, ‘That’s a problem.’” It’s a problem, he said, “because relying on one region, especially one as unpredictable as Asia,” where 75% of the chips are made, “is highly risky.”
