Klobuchar Refused To Prosecute Officer at Center of George Floyd Case, Might Have Prevented Death
Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has now been put on the hot seat for her actions that some have said led to the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed after a police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes in Minneapolis this week. The senator used to be in charge of prosecution for the city on Minneapolis when she served as Hennepin County attorney prior to becoming a senator. When she was in that position she declined to prosecute many police officers who were accused of using excessive force, including the officer who has been blamed for Floyd’s death,

Why Doesn’t Anybody Seem To Care About The U.S. Military Releasing UFO Videos?
Only a small fraction of UFO reports collected globally over the past seven decades seem to describe such objects, but the Navy footage appears to fit the bill. Whether such objects are vehicles of alien invasion or not, their mere presence would seem to indicate a national security threat, which is partly what makes the Pentagon’s recent announcement so puzzling. This is the first time the Pentagon has publicly confirmed the authenticity of UFO footage. It should have been a momentous announcement, but it seems to have barely moved the needle on the UFO controversy. Why?

The law allows state-security agencies from mainland China to operate in Hong Kong, overriding the authority of Hong Kong’s local government and allowing for China to more effectively punish political dissent, according to Fox Business.

Roving Bands Of Criminals Protesting Death Of George Floyd Have Rocked Minneapolis With Cascading Waves Of Arson, Violence And Looting
As you watch this horrific scene unfold, it is at once shocking and familiar to you. Shocking because you are watching the utter deprivation of humanity, depraved both in the killing of George Floyd as well as the waves of violence by hundreds of looters, thieves and arsonists in protest. Let’s call it for what it is, shall we? But taking just a small peek behind the curtain reveals to us another familiar character we’ve seen before in these back alleys of the end times, and he has much previous experience with financing and inciting these types of events.

New Pixar Movie ‘Out’ Promotes The LGBTQ Lifestyle Directly To Children In Boldest Attempt Yet To Indoctrinate Them Into Homosexual Movement
With each passing year, the gay activist crowd grows more and more powerful, flush with corporate funding in the millions of dollars, and the tent of their movement grows ever broader. That they desire children, on many levels, is evident, not only to recruit but also to be used as sexual objects as well.

Black Lives Matter Protests Explode In LA As Liberals Seek To Exploit Death Of George Floyd Who Died At The Hands Of Police Officers In Minneapolis
It is astounding to me, that after all the racial tensions of the past decade, that any police officer, black or white, in any police department in America, could do what police officers did in the death of George Floyd as they were arresting him. Even more shocking still is that the officers involved were fired, I think they should have been arrested. If you can’t trust the police, who are sworn to ‘protect and serve’, then peace in America is impossible. Maybe at this point, it’s impossible anyway.
