American Politics I

I was going to use "It's all over but the storming of the Capitol" but that wouldn't fit. I'm torn by the screaming ones but I'll think about them. Anyway ... have at it.

His Excellence wrote:Breonna Taylor went from dating one drug dealer to another,

That is a lie. Kenneth Walker is not a drug dealer.

His Excellence wrote:but it's the cops' fault that her boyfriend started a shootout with them while she was nearby, supposedly on the pretense of thinking it was the ex-boyfriend coming into the house, and she died during it.

Oh my, you know nothing of the case, do you?

Here, educate yourself:
Breonna Taylor shooting: A minute-by-minute timeline of the events that led to her death

His Excellence wrote:George Floyd was overdosing from a combination of drugs and saying he couldn't breathe before he even got out of his vehicle, and the cops did more to comply with him than he did to comply with them, but again, cops' fault that he died of an overdose (as the autopsy showed) while restrained.

Another lie.

[...]Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a press release, and subsequent to that, the full autopsy report, which indicated that the cause of death was "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression," and that the manner of death was homicide. They listed arteriosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease, fentanyl intoxication, and recent methamphetamine use as other significant conditions contributing to death.

This means that Floyd stopped breathing and his heart stopped beating (cardiopulmonary arrest) because of the injury caused by his restraint in the custody of law enforcement officers, to include asphyxia from neck compression. Asphyxia means that there is a lack of oxygen going to the brain. It can happen from obstruction of the airway, restriction of breathing from compression of the neck or chest, or the prevention of blood flow to the brain by collapsing the blood vessels in the neck. It can also happen from the replacement of oxygen in the blood by carbon monoxide, or depletion of oxygen in the atmosphere, like in a fire. "Cardiopulmonary arrest" is not a heart attack. Online sources that imply that the medical examiner is covering up George Floyd's death by calling it a "heart attack" are wrong.

The death certificate's "other significant conditions" -- Floyd's natural heart disease and the presence of drugs of abuse in his tested blood -- do not excuse the officers, nor should they cause anyone to blame the victim. They are there on the death certificate because those findings, in the opinion of the medical examiner, would have made his death more likely. They are not the cause of death. The cause of death is police restraint.

So... when the President does it, it is not illegal?

According the chiron Pelosi is also 'threatening' impeachment hearings, but since they're choosing to summarize what Biden just said instead of playing her speech I have no idea what that means. "Don't incite another riot or this time..."

No kidding. I went to bed just after the D.C. curfew and woke up to 100+ pages of new posts in the thread. If this one isn't full by the 20th, the same's gonna happen around then, I imagine.

First GOP lawmaker calls for invoking 25th Amendment to remove Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Thursday became the first GOP lawmaker to call for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

It came a day after a pro-Trump mob stormed and ransacked the U.S. Capitol in a futile bid to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Kinzinger, an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran who continues to serve in the Air Force, lay blame for the insurrection at the feet of the president himself, who had urged his supporters to march on the Capitol.

"Here’s the truth. The president caused this. The president is unfit and the president is unwell. And the president now must relinquish control of the executive branch voluntarily or involuntarily," Kinzinger, a centrist Republican and frequent Trump critic, said in a video message posted on Twitter.
