According to Rantz, some Seattle-area elementary school students received a head-scratching homework assignment sharing a decidedly anti-police sentiment.

Students at Grove Elementary were reportedly asked to watch a video that was said to teach kids “that racist police routinely target innocent black Americans.”

Rantz writes, “Among the lessons being promoted, either in the virtual classroom or via third-party resources to parents, students as young as 7-years-old are taught that racist police routinely target innocent Black Americans but don’t suffer consequences because police cover for each other.”

More Than Half Of American Voters Support Breaking Up Big Tech Companies, A New Poll Finds

Only 26% of voters oppose or strongly oppose splitting up the country’s largest tech companies, while 19% of those surveyed didn’t offer a view, a poll from progressive think tank Data for Progress showed.

The poll, which surveyed 1,200 likely voters in September, comes as the House lawmakers conclude their nearly yearlong probe into the industry’s supposed anticompetitive behavior.

In the same poll, roughly 60% of respondents expressed support for a prompt on smartphones asking users which search engine they’d prefer rather than a service provider using Google as a default

Google consistently accounts for roughly 90% of online information searches, Vox reported in May, citing Google Trends.

A Daily Caller News Foundation report in 2018 showed that Google employees have expressed willingness to artificially manipulate search results on the platform.

US Marshals Arrested Over 260 Suspected Criminals, Gang Members, Locate 5 Missing Children

The law enforcement event, dubbed “Operation Triple Beam,” lasted nearly two months and netted 262 arrests, including those accused of murder, assault, burglary and drug offenses, according to KFOR.

A total of 141 of the arrestees were gang members, and the agents were able to rescue five missing children, the local outlet reported.

Officers recovered 72 firearms, 9 kilograms (approximately 20 pounds) of narcotics, and $17,000, according to KFOR.

“Our primary goal with operations like OTB is to make communities safer,” Kuhlman continued.

“When we arrest these violent fugitives, we are also removing guns and narcotics from our streets. We believe these efforts have an immediate, positive impact on the communities we serve.”

Logan Cook, aka Carpe Donktum, used a video of a white child and a black child chasing each other to create a meme with the fake CNN headline, “TERRIFIED TODDLER RUNS FROM RACIST BABY.”

The video then cuts away to a clip of the two children hugging each other.

The video that Cook used for the meme had previously gone viral in 2019 when the parents took the video of their children after their first day of school.

President Trump and the Trump campaign both shared the meme on social media, which was quickly labeled “manipulated media” by Twitter.
Carpe Donktum’s Twitter account was permanently suspended 5 days after the video was made.

Parents Michael Cisneros and Alex Hanson, and parents Daniel and Erica McKenna, allege that their civil rights were violated when Cook used the video of their children without their permission.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey posted a note on Instagram on Thursday saying he would no longer display Antwon Rose Jr.’s name on his helmet. Pouncey also offered an apologetic explanation to police departments and officers he has worked with for “not doing more investigating” before wearing Rose’s name during a Monday night game.

To Rescue Biden, Media Conflate All Teleprompter Use

Commentary/Opinion:
During Biden’s nearly 50 years in politics, his off-the-cuff remarks have gotten him in more than a bit of trouble, but the obvious teleprompter use is posing problems of its own.

The Trump campaign made a brutal one-minute ad about it recently:

Mocking Biden for teleprompter use during what are supposed to be unscripted moments is not a generic attack on the use of automated technology to read a speech.

But that’s precisely what many media figures claimed during Trump’s latest mention of Biden’s curious practice. Take a look at some examples:

Reporters would be wise to try harder in their all-hands-on-deck effort to help out the Biden campaign.

Alternatively, they could simply report accurately about his teleprompter use and the reaction it provokes among his political opponents

Leaked Video Shows Democratic Rep Sean Casten Rapping About How Trump Supporters Are ‘Racist’ And ‘Loony’

A leaked video obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation shows first-term Democratic Illinois Rep. Sean Casten rapping at a private campaign event about how supporters of President Donald Trump are “racist” and “loony.”

Casten has previously faced scrutiny for apparently linking gun ownership to genital size and for comparing Trump to Osama bin Laden. The leaked video was recorded on Sept. 28, 2019, when the congressman held a campaign event at a local bar featuring his own band.

Pelosi will speak at the opening rally where she will discuss “how her Catholic faith guides her political vision” and encourage “fellow Catholics to mobilize and vote in this election.”

Pelosi praised Campbell in the press release provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation, calling the nun a “true champion for justice, whose decades of service are a testament to the power of faith to deliver progress for all Americans.”

Official Catholic teaching states that abortion “is a crime against human life,” “constitutes a grave offense” and that a person who obtains an abortion is automatically excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

In a “scheduled” maneuver, the U.S. sent the carrier and several other warships through the strait, the narrow mouth of the Persian Gulf, according to the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th fleet.

The Nimitz strike group “is at the peak of readiness,” said Rear Adm. Jim Kirk, its commander.

Iranian Court Orders The Amputation of The Fingers Of Three Teenagers Under Sharia Law

Commentary/Opinion:
We have previously discussed the brutality of Islamic nations enforcing medieval Sharia law.

Iran has given the world another shocking addition to the long list of beheadings, floggings, and other forms of Islamic punishment.

A “court’ has ordered the amputation of the fingers of three teenagers found guilty of theft.

In 2008 it was reported that five convicted criminals convicted of various crimes in addition to “acting against God” and “corruption upon this Earth.”

They were reported subjected to “cross amputation” where the right hands and left feet of the men were removed.

The amputation of the fingers of these minors is an offense to the most concepts of human rights and indeed humanity itself.

Slavery: The Details They Don’t Teach You In School (Pt.3) | Candace Owens | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Candace Owens about her new book, “Blackout:

How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democratic Plantation” and her journey from liberal to conservative.

Candace also encourages African Americans to give up on the victim mentality and the belief that systemic racism is to blame for all your problems.

Instead have a victor mentality and realize how lucky you are to be living in America in 2020.

She wishes more people knew the true history of slavery and the slave trade.

Africans weren’t stolen by whites, but they were in fact sold by other Africans.

Before that the Arab slave trade enslaved Africans. Knowing black history and this horrible past can make people appreciate how well we have it now, and also explain why there are so many African migrants trying to immigrate to America and very few black Americans are moving to Africa

CONTINUED MASKS OF SHAME – THE MONTHS OF THEIR SCAMDEMIC

This is a satirical site, most of the time, anytime.
We point out hypocrisy, expose know-it-all’s, and lampoon those who take advantage of others through hypocrisy, lying, or keeping the truth from the average citizen. We try to do so with satire, sarcasm and humor.

Quiet lamentations abound among the unwashed.

They hear, via their hand-held radiation devices or through television programming, that lest they might not be eternally tormented with this horrible curse the psychopath’s have inflicted upon them – the virus – all life will cease and in its’ place will be further insanity, much greater suffering will ensue, and the beatings will continue until morale improves.

All hail the dickheads!
