There’s absolutely nothing good about this whole mess in Minneapolis. I mean nothing.
Floyd apparently paid for a meal at a local restaurant with a counterfeit $20 bill.
We’ll likely never find out whether he knew the 20 was fake.
Maybe he did. So what?
By now, everyone has seen the video. Two cops handcuff Floyd at, I guess his vehicle. Then they lead him over to the police SUV. Floyd trips on the curb and falls to the pavement. The cops drag him to the driver’s side of their SUV and one cop nonchalantly puts his knee on the back of Floyds neck. You can here Floyd begging for his life. He wasn’t struggling – nothing.
And again – over what? A petty property crime?
Bad deal man. So I’ll give my thoughts at the end.
from the American Thinker:
Shelley Luther is America’s New Rosa Parks
Dallas, Texas salon owner Shelley Luther has become the face of the movement to free the nation from the oppressive lockdowns imposed by despotic governors and mayors.
She is a modern-day Rosa Parks, but more on that in a moment.
An inspiration in these dark times to patriotic Americans who yearn to have their most basic constitutional rights respected, Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail on May 5 for daring to open her salon despite emergency decrees mandating the continued forced closure of businesses like hers that have arbitrarily been deemed non-essential.

Horowitz: States can declare martial law on citizens but can’t stop noncitizens from voting
A broken clock is right twice a day, but our judiciary is always wrong, as it has perfectly twisted fundamental rights inside out and has flipped state and federal powers upside down.
We have finally discovered a power that the courts feel a state does not have. At a time when states are violating our rights to life, liberty, and property, restricting free movement, regulating interstate commerce and travel, and forming interstate compacts – all against the most basic foundations of our Constitution – the courts have finally stepped in to limit state powers. A federal court has ruled states cannot … ask for proof of citizenship to vote.

Federal Judge Blocks California’s ‘Onerous and Convoluted’ Ammunition Restrictions
A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.
I use a day pack when hiking on the weekends. With my pack, I attach an additional canvas roll filled with what I consider additional essentials.
Christians. Pastors in parking lots and fields, preaching through bullhorns and over loudspeakers to their parishioners seated in parked cars. We drove past about five of these churches, all of which were on the verge of committing a series of misdemeanors. For, while drive-in services do not violate Gov. Ralph Northam’s stay-at-home order, if anyone were to get out of his or her car — that’s an illegal gathering.

The supreme Court has decided, because it feels like it, to once again overstep it’s constitutionally authorized duties and grant deported aliens the right of a new challenge to their original deportation.
22 years after a Columbian national was deported for a major drug offense the Supremes have decided he should get a new hearing. Sounds reasonable – right?
Marvel Comics has gone full P.C. with their latest superhero additions.
In an 8-1 decision with only the wise Latina dissenting. What a shocker!!
from the Blaze:
Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a lower court’s decision blocking the policy from going into effect in Arizona and California — the two border states within its geographical jurisdiction.
That injunction was set to go into effect on Thursday, before the Supreme Court stepped in this week.

Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill
While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.
It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration.
from Conservative Review:
Imagine you are a liberal judge on the federal bench. You know that the entire political system, which includes all three branches of government and both political parties, vests you with unlimited power to dictate policy with an injunction. Regardless of the law, Constitution, rules of standing for a judicial case, past and recent Supreme Court precedent, political fallout, or national security consequences, you can declare an opinion and have that policy unquestionably become “the law of the land.” Why wouldn’t you try your hand at being a judicial version of Kim Jong-un?
At some point, we should stop blaming the judges for legislating with impunity and start blaming the other branches for not only ceding that power, but actively giving effect to the judges’ usurpations of law.
