China has now passed the U.S, becoming the world's largest retail market and a lot of Americans are pissed. But instead of blaming the elites who have caused this to happen, most seem to be picking sides making this a political issue. Politics always gets in the way of common sense.
The U.S has been in bed with China for decades and President after President has overlooked the possibility of China surpassing the U.S.
Trump is the only President to even pretend to be putting America first but it is too little too late.
“China is amid the final stages of an economic maturation that precludes the ultra-high growth rates of years past, regardless of politics and policies. Its potential growth rates for consumption and retail sales are still higher than what the U.S. and other major markets will see in pandemic-ravaged 2020. That leaves China in a position to reclaim some degree of standout performance once the pandemic subsides,” eMarketer said.
After being locked in their homes for the past two months, many Americans have begun to feel a sense of hopelessness and depression. Many have lost their jobs and maybe on the verge of losing their homes. After being told to "stay home or die" most people obeyed the stay at home orders. And then the George Floyd murder happened and the stay-a-home order went out of the window.
The Floyd murder has literally made people forget about the pandemic.
People all over America have gathered together in large crowds to protest the unlawful death of George Floyd. But what it makes it all interesting to me is the fact that these people were just scared to even go outside just a few weeks prior to the protests. When the college students went to the beach in Florida they were villified and condemned by mainstream and media as well as regular folks online calling beachgoers irresponsible and some even wished death upon them.
All of a sudden, the same people that were blasting people on social media for even thinking about doing anything other than staying at home, are out in the streets standing right next to one another with no social distancing whatsoever.
It really makes you wonder if these people were even being sincere about their covid fears or was it just that some people love that feeling of having power over others.
Some even went as far as to call the police on their neighbors when caught having semi-large gatherings.
What the protests have proved is that people are hypocritical by nature. People are nothing but sheep who believe any and everything that mainstream media tells them. During the pandemic, people picked and chose what they wanted to be afraid of. For example, everyone was afraid to go to work but nobody was afraid to go to the grocery store. Weird, huh?
In the end, we all end up at the same conclusion, at some point, America has to be reopened. The idea of going a whole damn year locked down is complete bullshit. The media can hate Trump all they want to but he was right in what he said America can not be locked down for too long. It was a nice try by Fauci and the gang but it failed. And despite what Bill Gates thinks, Americans will not be forced to take your patented vaccine. Nice try though.
As if tensions weren't high enough, Officer Thomas Mclay of the Denver Police Dept. posted himself and two other officers in riot gear with the caption "let's start a riot" on gis Instagram page.
Denver PD has since fired Officer Mclay after Denver PD intiated an Internal Affairs Investigation.
“The Internal Affairs investigation revealed that the officer violated the department’s social media policy, posted content inconsistent with the values of the department, and the officer has been terminated.”
Now one could can say that he was just joking but this idiot is only pouring gasoline on an already burning fire as tensions heat up between everyday civilians and police forces across the country in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Chicago had it's most deadliest day since 1991, according to the Chicago crime lab.
With over 18 people killed the day broke the previous record of 13 murders in a 24 hour period. Even worse, the murders took place during the Black Lives Matter protest which ironically, gives many racists a reason to say Black Lives don't matter to Black people.
'We’ve never seen anything like it, at all,' Max Kapustin, Crime Lab senior research director told the Chicago Sun-Times of the number of fatal shootings on May 31.
Chicago continues to embarrass the Black community as gang violence never takes a day off. Chicago is the city that racist point to whenever they want to make Black people look like animals that function in society. Although there are citizens of Chicago that absolutely despise the gang violence and bad image that it gives the city, I can not help but point out that for some reason there are those who love the gang culture and embrace the word "Chiraq" as if being compared to Iraq in wartime is a badge of honor.
Chicago has been called "Chiraq" for far too long, and it is a shame that a city with some much history and prestige has sunken this low. Being labeled Chiraq is nothing to be proud of and it is even more embarrassing that I would even have to state so.
According to Newsweek, Candace Owens launched a fundraising campaign on the website on Saturday to raise money for Michael Dykes. He is a bar owner in Alabama that called George Floyd a thug and criticized protesters calling for justice for Floyd.
Gofundme has removed Owens campaign which had raised $200,000 after repeated inflammatory remarks that they say have spread hate and falsehoods about the Black community.
[GoFundMe Removes Candace Owens' Campaign for Bar Owner Who Called George Floyd a 'Thug']
Of course, due to the fact that George Floyd's death was an obvious murder by the hands of White police officer she cannot pretend as if the cops actions were justifiable. However, Owens is getting paid to be a Black representative White supremacy. So what does Owens decide to do, she moved the subject away from George Floyd being murdered to George Floyd being a thug.
Although I don't usually agree with people being removed from any platform or banned from any online page due to their political views or opinions, I must say that Owens is somebody that I don't care to see make any money off of her constant cooning and her promotion of Black hate.
