This BLM crap needs to stop. They are black panthers under a new name and it's racist to say no one else's life matters which is what they are saying.

Byron Funkhouser said...

^^That's not what they're saying.

This "BLM crap" will stop when the police stop killing unarmed black men.

The police killing unarmed (but not un-dangerous) black men will stop when black males stop being violent sociopaths.

What I have learned recently is that BLM is a fraud. Not that anyone should value blacks less than anyone else but the black community is being used by the "BLM's". Black Live Matter is an organization not to promote equality, it is a fund raising tool. The funds given to the BLM organization go directly to another group (a 501 (c) 3 ) that funnels money directly to democrat organizations. It was formed under the Obama administration in 2013. Funds go to ACTBLUE which is a major donor to many people running for elected office. But at the same time as this was formed the Christian, conservative, and pro-life organizations were denied getting the 501(c)3 designation. Google it. In fact it wasn't until 2019 that the WinRed organization was allowed a 501(c)3 designation.
I've also learned that Bolton is as bad as Comey and Clinton and I am sure tried to blackmail Trump to support his crap instead of firing him.

@9:34, just now learned Bolton is deep State? He's been a war monger for the military industrial complex since the Bush era. He orchestrated the invasion of Iraq (for nothing, no gains, a people that don't want or understand freedom), promoted and manipulated the forever war in Afganistan (for people that don't want or understand freedom and haven't for millenia), tried his damndest to get us into Syria on the side of the same groups responsible for the Arab Spring shit (against a rather benevolent dictator who basically orchestrated peace in that volatile region). Maybe (big maybe) Trump will learn that these deep Staters march to their own tune and will not follow the policy direction of his administration, and actively seek to undermine him if he bucks their "guidance". Bolton is just the latest in deep staters trying to destroy the Trump administration. BTW Fauci and Brix are absolutely the same.

No story listed on TKC today about this just my observations. The KC (RED) Star is a rag with stories published on Thursday for things that happen on Tuesday, a full 48 hours behind, plus they don't even publish on Saturday anymore. BUT, the KCS can get stories published from the night before if it involves BLM, pillaging and looting and burning and changing the names of memorials, police interventions, etc. The Editorial board is against all the things being done right or wrong just always against things including the continuing drivel of T Porter and M Hennenberger. In addition a "reporter" today in the KCS has an article about Kansas City Community Bail Fund. This wonderful organization is doing so much good for so many people BUT they are not a registered 501(c)3 organization and operate as a bail bondsman, are they properly licensed, and if not why would the city/county refund bail to the organization? They get donations from the public with good intents BUT they don't publish who is running the place, who has donated and how much, where is KCCBF located, how much the two gals take as pay from the till, how they account for bails paid and are returned get allocated, don't seem to have any substantiated accounting procedures, run around town to the jails and police stations handing out handfuls of cash. Are all bail bondsman organizations 501(c)3 organizations, why not if KCCBF is, or is trying to be. Sound ripe for fraud. But what could possibly go wrong?
