The guy the cops in the US shot recently is seen here wearing a 'we are change' t-shirt' so it looks like he was a truther. Another guy ambushed the cops and killed one and this truther guy pulled his conceal and carry firearm and took down the shooter. It sounds like the cop then shot him thinking he was the shooter.

 

I don't know if that's what really happened but anyway, it looks like he was one of us:

47C in Canada?! 😯

I would die if I don't chain myself in a supermarket and hide there.

According to the standard, 38C in 2019 has been the highest for UK.

I don't know what's the fuss about this? 🤔

 

Chris Whitty is surrounded by two happy chappy.

 btw, you can see police vans in the background and they obviously didn't think it was a big deal.

David gets these warm greetings when he meets cheery strangers on the streets and don't complain. He smiles with them.

Granted that CW looks a bit out of sort, may be he is usually surrounded by grumpy people. lol

Bill Cosby, convicted of sexual assault by a Pennsylvania court, has had his conviction overturned. The court found that Cosby should not have been charged in the first place because the prosecutor's office had a deal in place that should have prevented it. If memory serves, the original prosecutor left office and it was his/her successor who went after Cosby in spite of the deal. It remains to be seen whether a new trial will now go ahead but Cosby has served 2 years of a 3-10 year term, though he has not cooperated with any of the sex offender programmes on offer in prison. My guess is that Cosby won't see the inside of a cell again.

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who oversaw Iraq war, dies at 88

WASHINGTON – Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has died at the age of 88, according to a statement released Wednesday from his family.

“It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Donald Rumsfeld, an American statesman and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.  At 88, he was surrounded by family in his beloved Taos, New Mexico,” the statement read.

 

“History may remember him for his extraordinary accomplishments over six decades of public service, but for those who knew him best and whose lives were forever changed as a result, we will remember his unwavering love for his wife Joyce, his family and friends, and the integrity he brought to a life dedicated to country.”

On the heels of the September 11 attacks, Rumsfeld directed a U.S. military attack on Afghanistan that led to the toppling of the Taliban. Two years later, Rumsfeld oversaw the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a move aimed at removing then-Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Rumsfeld, who initially earned praise for leading America’s military into conflict, was later criticized as the nation grew war-weary of the Iraq War. In 2004, Rumsfeld was blamed after photographs of U.S. soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners detained at Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad emerged.

Rumsfeld resigned as Secretary of Defense in 2006 and was replaced with Robert Gates.

 

Before leading the Pentagon, Rumsfeld served as President Richard Nixon’s ambassador to NATO. Under President Ford, Rumsfeld served first as White House chief of staff, then as Secretary of Defense, the youngest person ever to lead the nation’s largest federal agency.

If only....

 

''The reality of to 'who controls the media' is well hidden in plain site......We all have control of it...

A band plays live, lots of people going to watch it.....nice...great!

But without the people.....no budget for touring logistics nor anything else.

 

Same applies to the Media! We are the ones who decide either it exists or not. But again lol.....if only the majority stopped watching it...that would be the end of it.

Wow, this is utterly ridiculous. 

Don't know why it's not showing, but the link is of an Aberdeen Councillor who inappropriately felt up and kissed a waiter at a Black Tie event.. 

 

"Politicians guilty of ‘trivial’ sex attacks should not lose their job, claims convicted Aberdeen Councillor" 

I wouldn't say it's trivial if you're kissing someone and touching them without their willingness! Creepo!

Yesterday was Canada Day. It was disappointing to hear in the news of Canada Day events being cancelled in various communities across the country, with some citizens ashamed of living in one of the greatest countries on earth. One can really see the influence of the infiltrators and their quasi-Marxist adherents at work here. All the good about Canada, which far, far outweighs the (magnified) negative, ought to have been the focus of the national holiday. Instead, there were numerous skeletons at the feast, party poopers, and others who seemingly took great delight raining on the annual parade. What a disgrace. No doubt there were many others, however, who celebrated the day from coast to coast with a sense of patriotic pride, waving their handheld flags, perhaps even clad in their "Make Canada Great Again" ballcaps, glad they are not to be living in places like China, or Iran, or North Korea, fully aware of the precious freedoms they have living in a democracy.

Batley and Spen. Fancy that. Jo Cox's sister takes the seat for Labour. I always knew that politics was an incestuous business and here's your proof. Starmer bigging up the win and trying to appear as if he cares for the working people of the country. Pass the sick bag please...
