President Trump: “Looting Leads to Shooting” – MSM Go Bananas…

While watching the third night of mayhem, looting and riots in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, last night President Trump tweeted: “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts”, and the media went bananas.

Every person of normal and stable constitution knew the meaning was looting and violence leads to shooting and escalated violence; thus it needs to be addressed with urgency by local officials in charge of maintaining the peace.  However, the media needed to pretend they were unaware of common sense in order to turn the phrase into an attack against the president.  President Trump responds:

The background of George Floyd being killed by police officer Derek Chauvin is horrific.  There is no justification for Chauvin’s action and the seemingly cavalier attitude by those who were at the scene of the events.  Outrage and emotional reaction over the video of the events is not surprising; but the riots, arson and looting are another level of troubling.

CTH has not written about the incident, because there is obviously much more to the story than currently being presented by national media.

This is one of those incidents where a variety of interests seek to take advantage; and as each layer of interest attaches itself, well, the larger truth behind the originating event is lost. A rabbit hole is created.

Officer Derek Chauvin and victim George Lloyd knew each-other.  Chauvin was a security officer for a sketchy dance club named El Nuevo Rodeo, and had worked there for 17 years. Chauvin worked for El Nuevo Rodeo cantina and dance club longer than he was a police officer.  Mr. George Lloyd also worked at the restaurant/dance club as a bouncer, for several years.   Chauvin and Lloyd knew eachother.

The dynamic of the relationship between Lloyd and Chauvin is divergent from the media narrative.  Additionally, the media presentation of the club, and ownership, is also materially flawed.

The club is not what appears visible on the surface; neither is the relationship between the two men who both worked there.  CTH has reviewed the background, and made a decision to exit the rabbit hole.  Suffice to say it’s better to just sit this one out and watch.

Speculative reasons for disengagement:

El Nuevo Rodeo is owned by foreign interests: Omar Investments Inc.  The club appears to be a laundry operation; which is a semi-legitimate business set up as a front to launder illicit income streams which might include counterfeit operations.  Chauvin and Lloyd both worked there. The presented “former club owner”, seen on television, appears to be a purposeful ‘front’ (a face useful in deflecting attention from the primary operations).

With that in mind, the scale of false information in/around the visible event, horrible as it was/is, creates layers and layers of purposeful misinformation and a need to control what the public sees in the media.

Combine a sketchy background of participants who are all very familiar with each-other as noted on video; with a network of foreign interests and false fronts; and overlay a network of federal and national security operations that are well known and specific to Minneapolis… and, well, it’s a rabbit hole best left alone.

CTH is not going there.

Ignore the uniform angle in the video above, that’s a non issue.  The casual and familiar nature of the participants, in combination with what the “paramedics” do not do when they arrive on scene, seems to tell a larger story.

Regardless, a man lost his life; that alone is tragic.

      Yeah, and knowing Sundance, he has plenty of good reasons. For me, one of those reasons is that digging deep into this kind of stuff is HARD and takes its toll… I’m talking on an emotional level. Even though I followed the GG Mike case really closely, and helped in the crowd-sourcing here, I made a point to NOT get emotionally involved. That’s because I had learned my lesson from the Trayvon/George saga. That thing tore me up, and still gets to me if I think about certain aspects. Nope… won’t do it again.

    As to Trump’s tweet, I saw many comments today on TGP and BB, T supporters, who misinterpreted it. Let’s face it, sometimes tweets aren’t clear or can be taken many different ways. They should have clarified it much faster in response to the Twitter censorship.

    Twitter should be sued for inflaming the situation by ascribing bad motives to POTUS.

        (a) Whoever, without intent to effect the death of any person, causes the death of another by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evincing a depraved mind, without regard for human life, is guilty of murder in the third degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 25 years.

        (b) Whoever, without intent to cause death, proximately causes the death of a human being by, directly or indirectly, unlawfully selling, giving away, bartering, delivering, exchanging, distributing, or administering a controlled substance classified in Schedule I or II, is guilty of murder in the third degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 25 years or to payment of a fine of not more than $40,000, or both.

        609.205 MANSLAUGHTER IN THE SECOND DEGREE.

        A person who causes the death of another by any of the following means is guilty of manslaughter in the second degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than ten years or to payment of a fine of not more than $20,000, or both:

        (1) by the person’s culpable negligence whereby the person creates an unreasonable risk, and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another; or

        (2) by shooting another with a firearm or other dangerous weapon as a result of negligently believing the other to be a deer or other animal; or

A call transcript released by the Minnesota Police Department on Thursday reveals that the caller reported a customer for using a counterfeit bill to buy cigarettes at the Cup Foods in Minneapolis.

    According to owner, Mike Abumayyaleh, Floyd had tried to use a counterfeit $20 bill but was turned away by an employee. He is said to have come back a second time, using the fake bill, NBC News reports.

            The same unspoken rule thats become obvious in the Trump era i.e. that you should wait for “the rest of the story” should definitely apply to ANY story like this.
            Thats where the ‘genuine’ so called ‘peaceful’ protesters err.
            They are responding emotionally, which causes the critical thinking part of the brain to go mute, if the emotion is strong enough.

              Thanks as always for your insights. You of course describe the conundrum of the nonexistent but nevertheless real “court of public opinion” that ironically has never actually tried a case but is expert in knowing how.

              Your post, especially your parting paragraphs again point to my continuing thesis that is is the continuing loss of virtue among nearly all Americans, and in this particular context, among conservatives (and curiously even some Treepers) that makes us even more vulnerable to the manipulative wiles of our enemies.

              Finally, as to your point about the First Amendment, there is also the principle that just because I have a right to do something, begs the more important questions for us as individuals—SHOULD we exercise it in a given situation and if we say yes, then HOW do we express it?

                  I submit that many “Globalists”, that is those “progressives” etc., including ceo’s and corporate boards, Dem politicians, etc.,…and ‘average voters’, university indoctrinated, etc….are starting to be confronted by REALITY.

                  They have been manipulated, and are just now begining to realise they have been APPEASERS of Conmunism.
                  Churchill said an appeaser is someone who feeds others to the crocodile, in hopes they will be eaten LAST.

                  Firstly, I would direct the readers attention to a blog article, on todays AmericanThinker, titled:
                  “ESPN’s Chris Palmer NIMBY moment”, detailing how this lamebrain was posting all sorts of support, not just for ‘peaceful protest’, but for looting and burning,…until it got to HIS neighborhood.

                  Secondly, look at Chris Mathews. His career path similar to George Snuffleupagus, he started out in Kennedy/Johnson admin, the media, eventually ending up as host of “Hardball”, viewed as a leftist version of Buckleys “Firing line” where he would regularly attempt to slice and dice Conservative guests and policies, while advocating for “Progressive”policies.
                  Then, he did a little editorialising, where he said, (paraphrasing) “I have always advocated ‘progressive’ policies, and will continue to.
                  However, I have seen first hand, the ravages of CONMUNISM, and in no way support it.”

                  Within a week, he was OFF the air, and I doubt he could get an op-ed published, anywhere.

                  Should the Conmunists achieve control, these enablers will be seen as a potential threat, and so be the FIRST to be put up against the nearest wall, and a bullet in the brain.

                  And, I THINK they are just beginning to realise it.
                  Riding a tiger can be exhilerating, but at some point you have to get off.

                  These idiots all thought that, come the ‘transformation of America’ (revolution) that they would be in charge, on top, part of the small cabal that would run things for their benefit,….and are now just beginning to realise the CCP has NO intention of sharing power,…its the Conmunist way.

                  Small satisfaction,….but perhaps this awakening is also occurring in SOME of the masses of idiots?

                  Another great insight. Of course as history and the present shows, those pushing hardest for totalitarianism rule by some “elite” regardless of the particular flavor—socialism, communism, anarchy, fascism etc.) seem to always assume they will be in that ruling elite, and since many of these people are in one or more present “elites” (politicians, wealthy—especially big tech, Hollywood, academia, Top management of “woke” globalist corporations, top military brass, (anti) social media “”influencers” etc.) it is natural they envision themselves continuing in such vaunted roles.

                  Thus their view of the utopia they seek includes stores full of food and goods with not having to stand in line with the other lesser “comrades,” excellent “special” medical care at “party” hospitals, upscale housing, education at “elite only” schools, free (no travel “papers” required I mean) travel, vacation dachas in the country among the “comrade peasants,” a shiny car, “help” around the house from lesser comrades scraping together a “living” etc.

                  While some may end up in the new ruling elite, many others will be liquidated as “useful idiots” who served their purpose and their ambition and “wokeness” then makes them enemies of the State. Later, those initially in the ruling elite can look forward to themselves being liquidated as even more “elite” members of the ruling elite realize they can climb the ladder of “eliteness” over the bodies of weaker members of the ruling elite (as Mao did in murdering most of his politburo and a 100 million more Chinese) and so it will go.

                  That reminds me of something that happened a few months ago. My wife and I have been helping a friend clean up her mom’s house after she (her mom) had to go into a nursing home. It was kind of a “hording” situation, so a real mess. As we went through the furniture, most of the stuff we’d find in drawers didn’t amount to much of anything, but of course we still checked closely anyway… didn’t want to just dump it all without checking. But one of the dressers was really old and moldy and nearly falling apart, to the point the drawers wouldn’t open.

                  The junk guys were there preparing to haul off some stuff, including other furniture we had already gone through. I tell our friend that I can’t get the drawers open and she says just let them take it anyway, since nothing much was in any of the other furniture. But I decided not to give up, got out a hammer and crowbar and… 🙂 Anyway, once I got it tore apart, 90% of it WAS junk. BUT there was also a fold-up flag (triangle fold), and when I showed it to her she was like “Oh!” I guess it was from the military funeral of a close relative she had forgotten about.

    There is no balance to this “justice”. There is no going to court and law fare tactics that get the perps off. The deed is done, and it was done because the cop could kill that man while other cops served as security for the perp.

    I agree with SD and have refused to enter the hole with Bugs Bunny to speculate on the crime(s).

    Yet, the one comment I will make here and have made on other blogs is that the leftist politicians, MSM and celebrities making fools of themselves have never stopped to realize; every one of these “racial” tragedies, dating back to Obama’s regime, has occurred in a long-time democrat run municipality with democrat municipal authorities responsible for hiring, supervising and firing the all the employees of that municipality involved in the incident. Further, it is the leadership of those same democrat run (mismanaged) municipality responsible for the creation of the socio-economic environment of that municipal entity.

    Nobody in the media will say it, so it needs to be spread via the social web. If one follows the logic of the leftist politicians, MSM and celebrities then the democrat party promotes racism and bigotry while profiting politically and financially off their handy work.

    This is the reason the politicians from Baltimore went nuts when the President pointed out this fact and the reason the media went nuts in 2016, when Candidate Trump ask the crowd in Detroit “what the hell have the democrats done for you”.

    Democrat municipal and congressional politicians create the environment for the tragedy, spark the tragedy and then encourage their constituents who live in that municipality to burn down their own town. They even bus in storm troopers to help. Note that none of the property of the politicians is touched.Then there are the fly by celebrities and reporters, who do not live in the municipality being burned, who encourage the residents to keep burning down their own homes.

      It doesn’t matter if the patient is dead or alive trained medical people do not move patients by yanking them around.

      As you point out Mr e-man they turned him over by yanking him ( no protective cervical collar) and then dumped him on the stretcher in a very unprofessional way.

      Paramedics usually arrive at the scene, asses the patient and then move them according to procedure.

      This takes time.

      These paramedics showed up almost threw the patient on the stretcher and was out of there in a flash.

    Ha!

    At the press conference some too-clever-by-half reporter asked:
    “Mr President, were there ‘good people’ [there at the riot] ?

    I think it was snark intent but reporter didn’t realize he was serving up a softball for PresTrump

    Of course there were some ‘good people’ there, honestly protesting — note, NOT the ones looting and arsoning … the other ones

    y’know – like I said about that other riot couple years ago

    ya dummy

    It’s weird.

    When these riots happened every other weekend during the Obama administration, I was saddened and felt the animosity had been stoked purposely, false narratives to gin up emotion, etc.

    Now I’m just apathetic. I feel bad for the people living in the community, but otherwise, I don’t care anymore. Upon reflection, perhaps it’s a little bit of rioters having it right this time, it was murder – at least according to what is known right now, and some is watching the police haul off mommy and daddy in a park somewhere for pushing their toddler on the swings, and perhaps the biggest part is knowing the DOJ and FBI and other law enforcement agencies are entirely corrupt. Sure, I don’t see why Target or some AutoZone franchisee should pay for that corruption, but really, I’m simply too fatigued to care anymore. F** it.

    I guess what I’m saying is, there’s a message for Bagpipe Barr somewhere in here.

    First impeachment, then the virus, now the riots. Anyone got ideas on the next election year doomsday scenario once the riots subside? I keep telling people its only going to get worse as the left are determined to destroy Trump by any means necessary.

    Yep, not worth digging into right now. Missing and misinformation is dominating everything now. One thing is true, the guy was killed by a known dirty cop.

      I suspect the other guys with him were dirty too: they needed the other guy silenced. They were all involved in crimes involving that club and counterfeiting, and that includes the deceased.

        Exactly.
        Cops are dirty as a requirement. Clubs are auto-dirty as well.
        Lots of us are dirty in our own ways, too.
        But straight killing a man in broad daylight, with NOBODY able (or willing) to stop it?
        This may be a giant rabbit hole, but the prima facia looks like a summary execution.

    No EMTs. Is he really dead or was this staged?
    More of these to come?

      The EMT’s didn’t check vital signs, if none they did not start CPR and provide manual ventilation. If there is a code (death) in the field there are protocols to be followed. None of that took place. I would love to know if the ambulance left with sirens and lights (code 3 run).

        If you look at the very start of the video you’ll see a person with white gloves with a finger in the General vicinity of the aorta that appears to checking for a pulse.

        I really don’t get, is why that Leo continues to kneel on his neck when he’s obviously dead. You can also see in the video what appears to a urine stream heading down towards the curb that may or may not be the loss of bodily function due to death.

    Another Democrat act of destruction against law abiding citizens. MN governor and MPLS mayor are 100% responsible for the devastation to their cities.

    This is all about leadership, the wromg kind for our country.

    If the riots were planned or hijacked, WHY?

    Theory:

    Drive POTUS’ black support down.
    Drive Buden’s black support – critical – up.

    And as many have said, this is about 1 to 2 Supreme Court seats. Period.
