Maxine Waters tells Minnesota BLM protesters 'to get more confrontational' one day after violent anti-police clashes erupted across US

California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.

Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to 'to get more confrontational' - just one day after protests descended into violence.'I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,' Waters said. 'We're looking for a guilty verdict,' she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. 'If we don't, we cannot go away.' 'We gotta stay on the street,' Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed 'to get more confrontational' and they should ignore the curfew in place.

Her comments sparked outrage on Twitter.

'Of course she’ll get away with saying that while anyone else would’ve been thrown in jail,' Rick Santella tweeted.Another user tweeted, 'Good grief lady, leave get out of here.'One person also accused Waters of 'stirring people up again with her calls for violence.'

Had no symptoms because he was vaccinated TWICE

A fully vaccinated foreign worker in Singapore on Sunday tested positive for Covid-19, the only local case in the 20 total infections recorded on the same day.

The ministry of health said the patient was a 23-year-old Indian national who worked in the marine industry and was staying at a dormitory in the south of the country. His case was not linked to previous cases.

The worker had no symptoms, which the ministry said was likely due to him having received two Covid-19 vaccine doses, on January 25 and February 17.

He also had a positive serology test as he could have produced antibodies following the vaccination, the ministry added.

"This case is a reminder that it is possible for vaccinated individuals to get infected," the health ministry said. "But the vaccine is effective in preventing symptomatic disease for the vast majority of those vaccinated."

Sunday's tally brought the total number of Covid-19 cases in Singapore to 60,653. In all, 60,335 people have fully recovered from the infection.

Elsewhere on the same day, Japan authorities said a hospital employee who was recently fully vaccinated tested positive for Covid-19.

The temporary worker at a hospital in Ishikawa Prefecture had received two doses of the vaccine developed by Pfizer Inc on March 13 and April 3, local authorities said. The person has not shown any symptoms yet, they said.

The worker took a test after coming into contact with an infected person. According to the hospital, the person does not deal with patients.

"In general, it takes time before antibodies are produced following vaccination," a prefectural government official said on Sunday.

FedEx shooter Brandon Hole was obsessed with ‘My Little Pony’

No.828385 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The teen who shot up an Indianapolis FedEx facility and killed eight people was reportedly part of a bizarre Internet subculture obsessed with “My Little Pony.”

Posts on Brandon Hole’s since-taken-down Facebook page appear to indicate he was a member of the “Bronies” community — a group of mostly adult men who are extreme fans of the kiddie toys and animated television show, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Some members are sexually attracted to the characters, while the group also has allegedly displayed far-right tendencies.

“I hope that I can be with Applejack in the afterlife, my life has no meaning without her,” Hole wrote on his Facebook page at 10:19 p.m. Thursday, less than an hour before his rampage began, the outlet reported.

The post included a photo of Applejack, a blond pony that is a main character on the show.

My Little Pony

The name Brony is a mashup between “bro” and “pony” — and the group has a history of extremist tendencies, the outlet said, citing an internal Facebook memo they reviewed that detailed the post.

“Brony online culture has displayed elements of far-right and white nationalist extremism,” the memo stated.

Facebook stopped short of saying Hole’s pony-love had anything to do with the shooting, writing in the memo there was no clear evidence it motivated the massacre.

Hole, a former employee of FedEx, opened fire in the facility before turning the gun on himself.

Murder case against ex-cop in Floyd’s death goes to the jury

The murder case against former Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd went to the jury Monday in a city on edge against another round of unrest like the one that erupted last year over the harrowing video of Chauvin with his knee on the Black man’s neck.

The jury of six white people and six people who are Black or multiracial began deliberating after nearly a full day of closing arguments in which prosecutors argued that Chauvin squeezed the life out of Floyd last May in a way that even a child knew was wrong.

The defense contended that the now-fired white officer acted reasonably and that the 46-year-old Floyd died of a heart condition and illegal drug use.

The jurors deliberated about four hours before retiring for the night to the hotel where they are being sequestered for this final phase of the trial. They were due to resume Tuesday morning.

ChyyNa epidemiologist say, "Chinese vaccine is shit!"

In a rare admission of the weakness of coronavirus vaccines developed in ChyyNa, the country's top disease control official says their effectiveness is low and the government is considering mixing them to get a boost.

ChyyNa's vaccines "don't have very high protection rates," Gao Fu, the director of ChyyNa's Centers for Disease Control, said at a conference Saturday in the southwestern city of Chengdu.

Beijing has distributed hundreds of millions of doses abroad while trying to promote doubt about the effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine made using the previously experimental messenger RNA, or mRNA, process.

Republican packed Supreme Court rejects the Trump Big Lie and reaffirms he lost the election

No.828831 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Imagine packing the supreme court by stealing two seats and they still don't steal the election for you.

Washington (CNN)Five months after the presidential election, the Supreme Court said on Monday that it won't take up a case from several Republicans challenging changes to election rules in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
The unsigned ruling sends yet another message that the court's majority has no interest in relitigating the last election.
Before Monday, the justices had already declined several requests to dive into one of the most litigious elections in history, denying petitions from then-President Donald Trump and other Republicans seeking to overturn election result in multiple states President Joe Biden won.

Scumbag Journalist Harrassed Paramedic Over Ten Dollars

No.828774 ViewReplyOriginalReport

A local report in Utah faced heavy backlash over the weekend after tracking down a paramedic who donated to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse and attempting to confront him at home.

The Guardian reported last week Rittenhouse, the Illinois teenager accused of killing two protesters in Wisconsin in August, received thousands of dollars in donations for his legal defense, including from public officials and police officers.

Jason Nguyen, a reporter from ABC’s Salt Lake City affiliate in Utah, discovered a local paramedic donated $10 to Rittenhouse and headed to his home seeking his "side" of the story. The decision to track down a private citizen for donating $10 was lambasted nationally once Nguyen tweeted about it.


"A Utah paramedic donated to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse. It was first reported in the @guardian this morning. Rittenhouse is accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, WI. I tried to get the paramedics [sic] side of things. See the story tonight at 10p on @abc4utah," Nguyen wrote to accompany a photo taken as he knocked on the paramedic’s front door.

Russia says its airstrike in Syria killed 200 militants

No.829047 ViewReplyOriginalReport

MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian military said Monday that its airstrike killed about 200 militants in eastern Syria.

Rear Adm. Alexander Karpov, the head of the Russian military's Reconciliation Center in Syria, said Russian warplanes hit two militant hideouts northeast of Palmyra.

Karpov said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies that the air raid killed some 200 militants and destroyed 24 vehicles and about 500 kilograms (over 1,100 pounds) of ammunition and explosives. He said the militants' base had served as a staging ground for terror attacks across Syria.

Russia has waged a military campaign in Syria since 2015, helping President Bashar Assad's government retake control over most of the country after a devastating 10-year conflict.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported the airstrikes, saying they preceded a sweep by Russian troops and the Syrian Fifth Corps in search of Islamic State militants cells in the Homs desert. The Observatory said 26 IS militants were killed.

The Observatory said the raid might have been in response to the Islamic State group's claims that it had killed two Russian soldiers in the desert. The ground operation began Monday under the heavy cover by Russian military helicopters.
