How Easily We Forget (especially when we want to)

2021 September 4
by bc3b

15 months ago George Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody and the world went bonkers. There was rioting and looting in Minneapolis, Chicago and dozens of other US cities – large and small. The media provided nonstop  coverage. His funeral was almost a state event. Professional sports leagues had tributes to George Floyd with messages on the field and players’ uniforms.

13 brave, young patriots were killed in a suicide bombing at the Kabul Airport. 11 bodies were transported to Dover AFB last Sunday for a “dignified transfer.” Joe and Jill Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and General Mark Milley attended the event even though many/most of the deceased members’ families didn’t want them there. Joe Biden was a complete jackass, looking at his watch numerous times and talking about his late son Beau rather than focusing on the deceased service members when meeting with families that were willing to meet with him. It’s less than two weeks and, with the exception of a few local demonstrations of respect, they have already pretty much been forgotten. Nancy Pelosi refused to let their names be publicly called out in the House of Representatives. CNN isn’t covering the individual funerals.

Let’s compare George Floyd with the 13 service members who died in Afghanistan:

  • Floyd was a career criminal who spent years in prison. He once pointed a loaded gun at the belly of a pregnant woman. If George Floyd ever did anything positive in his entire life, no one noticed.
  • The deceased service personnel died in service to the country. They enlisted to serve the country and that’s what they were doing in Afghanistan.
  • George Floyd was an accessory to his own death. Had he not broken the law by attempting to pass counterfeit money, had a large amount of drugs in his system and resisted arrest, he wouldn’t have died that day.
  • The 13 who died went in Afghanistan because their units were ordered to deploy. In no way did they play a role in  causing their own deaths.
  • George Floyd’s relatives will receive millions. The families of the 13 will receive next to nothing.
  • The police officers whose screw-ups resulted in Floyd’s death lost their jobs and have either been sentenced or are likely to be sentenced to prison. Nothing will happen to the screw-ups (Biden, Austin, Miley and possibly some ground commanders) whose mistakes cost 13 brave young Americans their lives.
  • Just as CNN and the rest of the media refused to cover the drugs in George Floyd’s system, they will also refuse to investigate what all went wrong in Afghanistan.

Here are the names Pelosi wouldn’t allow to be read:

Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo, 25, of Lawrence, Massachusetts.

Sgt. Nicole L. Gee, 23, of Sacramento, California.

Staff Sgt. Darin T. Hoover, 31, of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Cpl. Hunter Lopez, 22, of Indio, California,

Cpl. Daegan W. Page, 23, of Omaha, Nebraska.

Cpl. Humberto A. Sanchez, 22, of Logansport, Indiana.

Lance Cpl. David L. Espinoza, 20, of Rio Bravo, Texas.

Lance Cpl. Jared M. Schmitz, 20, of St. Charles, Missouri.

• Lance Cpl. Rylee J. McCollum, 20, of Jackson, Wyoming.

Lance Cpl. Dylan R. Merola, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga, California.

Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui, 20, of Norco, California.

Navy Corpsman Maxton W. Soviak, 22, of Berlin Heights, Ohio.

Staff Sgt. Ryan C. Knauss, 23, of Corryton, Tennessee.

USMC Sgt. Nicole Gee of Sacramento killed in Kabul Airport attack | abc10.com

While 13 brave Americans will soon be forgotten, a career criminal has been memorialized.

    Well Gee PRP, then explain this one — https://www.thecollegefix.com/despite-95-vaccination-rate-cornell-today-has-five-times-more-covid-cases-than-it-did-this-time-last-year/ — A campus with 95% vaxx rate had 322 positive cases the start of the semester.

    The vaxx IS the infection, CoVid is just a co-conspirator.

    As JR rightly observes — https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/rolling-stone-horse-dewormer-hit-piece-debunked-after-hospital-says-no-ivermectin — TPTB are attempting to suppress ivermectin at all odds against rhyme or reason.

    3, yes there will be a “cottage industry” of obscure left wing writers demonizing DeSantis in obscure left wing media. The MSM will mostly hold back till DeS is assured nomination.

    Who else recalls how it worked for Romney? They had this story about Mitt tying a dog carrier to his vehicle roof (pet inside). Upon arrival the (supposedly) hysterical dog fled … but was later recovered none the worse for the experience.
    This story was being seeded all over. It was link-ready to be posted in the big outlets at a moment’s notice.
    Then one guy upended it (maybe Geraghty?).
    He read Obama’s bio unlike all the Prog writers. And he pulled out the chapter about eating dogs in Indonesia, tasty enough but stringy.
    He published that set of passages. Right wingers began posting the link in the comments of Leftie publications. And surprise, that dog issue got dropped.

    GN, 13,

    Indeed I did. Certainly the petro dollar will die. Putin has played all the right cards with his pipeline plays.

    The next move is on us. When the Fed attempts to taper then fails they will return to QE yet again. What follows after that is the foreign holders of USD will sell. The foreign holders represent 150% of all the USD on the planet. Prices double or triple domestically as a result.

    Bottom line: If you don’t own it now you won’t be able to afford to 3-4 years from now.

    By the way as a chaser, Social Security goes negative 2033. They say, I think sooner than that.

    The only solution for the US Government is Default. Which by the way is when the Nationalists should jump like sharks. Repudiate it all, no more:

    * Social Security
    * Section 8
    * Progressive taxation
    * Welfare
    * etc, etc.

    And eliminate the departments that hand out the goodies. Clean slate all round.

    drdog – From Greg Hunter over at USAWATCHDOG.

    https://usawatchdog.com/desperate-money-printing-leads-to-depression-dr-marc-faber/#more-25439

    Legendary investor, economist and market forecaster Dr. Marc Faber thinks central banks (CB) are not going to cut back the money printing. Just the opposite. He predicts CBs are going to print even more money at a faster pace to hold the failing economic system together for a little while longer.

    So, with inflation going up and the standard of living going down in the West, is the possibility of war going up? Faber says, “Correct. I think once this Covid19 thing is over, the elite, the ones who make the money, will go to war. That is the last recipe to keep the population together.”

    my comment – when all else fails they go to war.

    Sad but true on the war front. Though an interesting thought experiment. If the 3 gorges dam did go, China might be so distracted by the event to consider it. Might even cause the collapse of the CCP.

    Farber pretty smart fella. Even without a war, we are experiencing a power shift in the world that will probably result in a era like the 1880’s. Multiple spheres of influence by regional powers.

    drdog – on the 3 Gorges Dam. If it went, up to a 1/3 of the population (estimates, of 300 to 500 million) could be affected. It would devastate the industrial heart of China.

    From what I have read else where, if the dam goes, the CCP would lose the mandate of heaven to rule. In the Chinese culture, they believe that government (any) has the mandate of heaven to rule UNTIL some disaster befalls the Chinese people. Many times in the past, there has been regime changes due to natural disasters and famine (Mandate of Heaven).

    The dam going would be viewed as a mandate from heaven. And a good likely hood the peasants would revolt.

    If you have been following the dam, it has been had risk the last few years (due to massive flooding). And there are experts world wide that expect it to fail (many within China). If you have your doubts, look at the failure of many Chinese projects due to Chinese engineering and cost cutting measures.

    I will leave you with this one. Back in the fall of 2019, China rewrote the Bible to fit their narrative on communism and government. Remember what God said about his word.

    Revelation 22:18-19

    I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

    Will dot gov pick winners and convince everyone to get an electric vehicle?
    Maybe.
    But that 40 min wait while it charges can be a pain. And the squandering of battery power to heat or cool is shocking (outside mild areas like CA). And on a hot day my wife’s Tesla sounds like a jet engine. It fires up the cooling system to keep the battery compartment within a certain temperature range. It burns a ton to do so.

    Who remembers the incandescent light bulb?
    Dot gov insisted we all switch to mercury filled curly cue bulbs.
    LED bulbs won though.

    Ideally we need autonomous electric so that ppl don’t need to own vehicles.

    Autonomous vehicles, at least the kind without steering wheels, are still 20+ years away. Perhaps more. Robotic vehicles aren’t yet even at cockroach level intelligence yet, and full autonomy won’t happen until we have AI at least to perceive and understand the world at about the level of a rat or dog. To do that, it will take a handful of major breakthroughs that will make deep learning algorithms look like playing with TiddlyWinks. The current parlor trick-level cars that can function in a closed artificial environment may look impressive, but they are far from ready for the rough and tumble real world.
