It most certainly is not. The Black Lives Matter movement is the creation of a group of a few very wealthy individuals, non-profit corporations, and the corporate media (incidentally, 90% of the U.S. media is controlled by only six corporations) https://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-corporations-control-90-of-the- media-in-america-2012-6 Excerpt: On May 20th 2020 Floyd was arrested again for trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill at a Minneapolis grocery store. This was the event that supposedly set off this insane world-wide media storm. As we know, Floyd died while in police custody and the four officers involved were all immediately fired and charged with murder and aiding and abetting murder. This was done before any investigation has been done, and before the cause of death was even established. The main officer involved, Derrick Chauvin was immediately tried, convicted, and hung. Not by a jury, but by the media. The media has so thoroughly convicted him that it is considered blasphemy of the highest order to even hint that he should be considered, “innocent until proven guilty”. The media has proclaimed it murder. Case closed! Well once again I hate to spoil the show by introducing more facts into this media circus of lies, but here it goes. According to the official Hennepin County Medical Examiner (not the private “examiner” paid for by the Floyd family legal team), George Floyd did not die from traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. The report stated that he died from a heart attack and the heart attack was a result of several factors. He had the narcotic Fentanyl in his system (which is 50 times more potent than heroin and the same drug that killed Prince), and he also had methamphetamines in his system. He also suffered from severe arteriosclerotic heart disease, and hypertension. All of that combined with his struggle with the police as they tried to subdue him is what caused him to go into cardiopulmonary arrest. Not just the fact that officer Chauvin had his knee on his neck. George Floyd received emergency medical care in the field, but he could not be resuscitated. Does that sound like murder to you? Read the report for yourself. https://www.hennepin.us/-/media/hennepinus/residents/public- safety/documents/Autopsy_2020-3700_Floyd.pdf [note from PF 2020/09/28 this link seems gone] Also see: https://greatgameindia.com/george-floyd-criminal/ 2020/09/23 Jacob “Jake” Gardner/James Scurlock case 2020; see also related material at NOTES #2/Personal Comments on this issue for 2020/09/24 Gardner died from apparent suicide in front of a medical facility in Portland, was dealing with a shooting death from Nebraska. Gardner was an Iraq Marine veteran, involved in the shooting of 21 year old James Scurlock in Omaha, Nebraska during protests and a brawl in front of Gardner’s bar.  Scurlock was indicted and ordered to return to Nebraska shortly before his death.  Two black attorneys on the prosecution side (see below) Connected Attorneys to this case Black Senator Justin Wayne - see article CNN-2020/06/02 and Star Herald 2020/07/23  below showing he was on the Gardner/Scurlock case and showed black anti-racism/BLM style of Nebraska legislature submissions Fredrick D.

Now that Gardner has committed suicide, we are pressing for the grand jury report Franklin had promised if no charges were brought. We believe the city needs that transparency.  Moving toward equal treatment for people of color is an important, ongoing battle supported at least in words this summer by Omaha police, the mayor, business leaders and others.  Suicide by our nation’s veterans, of whom Gardner was one, is a crisis we also must address.  We cannot do these things if we get sucked in by Twitter influencers who benefit from encouraging people to scream and threaten.  James Scurlock and Jake Gardner carried the experiences of their very different lives onto Harney Street on the chaotic night of May 30 and got into a fight. Video shows that much without dispute. Gardner brought a gun that he fired three times, and the judicial system was set to determine if his actions were criminal. That also is an indisputable fact. https //omaha com/opinion/columnists/social-media-wont-solve- issues-underlying-the-scurlock-gardner- tragedy/article_a039879f-3b1f-5544-94a8-4c76eec844ed.html 2020/09/06  Provocation or protection?

They are: » Clarence Mock, an attorney for four decades who has represented murder defendants and won acquittals in self- defense cases. A former Burt County attorney, Mock also has served as a special prosecutor, successfully prosecuting David Kofoed, the longtime Douglas County CSI chief, for planting evidence. https //omaha com/news/local/crime-and-courts/provocation-or- protection-videos-case-law-will-guide-grand-jury-in-james- scurlocks-death/article_97843e71-3813-56d6-803f- 25caaca2524a.html KETV    2020/09/22   Jake Gardner, man charged in Scurlock death, has died by suicide https //www dot ketv dot com/article/jake-gardner-man-charged-in- scurlock-death-has-died-by-suicide-sources-say/34089387# Excerpt:  Special Prosecutor Fredrick D.

It can't be based on anger. It can't be based on any of those things."  But attorney Justin Wayne, who represents the Scurlock family, said the 22-year-old should not have been shot during a scuffle involving Gardner and a few individuals on Saturday night in the Old Market entertainment district downtown. He said the case should go to a grand jury https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/02/us/omaha-bar-owner-black- protester-trnd/index.html Star Herald 2020/07/23   Sen. Wayne wins approval to allow Nebraska Legislature to debate police oversight board proposal  By Paul Hammel https://starherald.com/news/regional_statewide/sen-wayne-wins- approval-to-allow-nebraska-legislature-to-debate-police-oversight- board-proposal/article_a238b565-335c-5952-9ea1-cb09d466db18.html Excerpt:  [Nebraska] State Sen. Justin Wayne of Omaha won approval Thursday to allow debate on his police oversight board proposal on a 32-4 vote.  With only 14 days left in the 2020 session, Wayne said he understands he may not have enough time to get the proposal through a public hearing and three rounds of debate and be passed. But, the Black legislator said, the Legislature needs to respond now, not next year, to demonstrate that it "cares" about the pleas to do something about instances of racial injustice involving law enforcement.

(p. 42) Chart:  Most Murders are Interracial (p. 41) Percent of black victims killed by blacks:  94% Percent of black victims killed by whites: 6% Percent of white victims kiilled by whites:  86% Percent of white victims killed by blacks:  14% Black-on-white violence rarely receives condemnation from the black press, and unsurprisingly, the mainstream media also conveniently overlook this pattern of racial violence; it conflicts with the portrayal of blacks as permanent victims incapable of being racists.  Therefore, the non-coverage is just another instance of the corporate media spitting at the public… (p. 42) White Resistance Undoubtedly, white resistance is surfacing…Nevertheless, the mounting white backlash is more of an awareness campaign and shedding of “white guilt” than one of violence….(p. 43) White Victims Some white victims of black violence, including BLM violence, mentioned: Marquez, Chris pp. 43-44 Washington, DC White Hispanic Decorated Marine who withstood violence in Fallujah and helped his colleagues Was targeted and beaten severely by black teens who were demanding “black lives matter” while he was eating his lunch in McDonald’s; he was hit in the head from behind, was rendered unconscious, then was beat further and robbed - his wallet was stolen -- Washington Post is listed as a resource “Former Marine, AU student says he was beaten in racially motivated attack” Bobbish, Jourdon and Kudla, Jacob (pp. 44-45) Detroit, Michigan Murdered execution style in a field Robbed, tortured and then killed after trying to buy drugs Defendant Fredrick Young showed no remorse, and only responded in favor of deceased blacks and used the expression  “black lives matter” - no apology to dead victims 2020/09/13 Higgins Memo See this separate page Potus/Higgins memo 2017  from UTT/Understanding the Threat website - discusses political warfare and Marxist-Islamic cooperation against Trump. Excerpt:  While beyond the actual scope of this document, the benefactors of these political movements include; Urban Real Estate who depend greatly on immigrant tenants, International Banking who seeks to maintain US debtor status so as to control the application of American power, and elements of the business sector that depend upon immigrant labor or government infrastructure. 2020/09/11 Scytl voting arena corruption in US linked to Spain and Russian thugs Russian/American business dealings, Russian invasion of American corporations Fox News 2020/09/09  Opinion by Rob Smith: Black Lives Matter doesn’t really care about Black lives lost unless group can blame police BLM’s cult-like tactics are more like those of a violent gang than a traditional civil rights group https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/black-lives-matter-protests-rob- smith Medium dot com [Note from PF regarding the Russian hacking theme:   Alternative view, found in above Higgins Memo: Backdrop Narratives. The backdrop to the meta and supporting narratives are cultural Marxist memes designed to sustain a general sense of loathing of President Trump and the America that elected him.  Hence: • "[meta] President Trump is illegitimate, [supporting] he was elected because of Russian hacking, [backdrop] and besides, he is a racist, sexist xenophobe." Whether or not Brian Mohr’s work reflects a way to show Russian interference into global and American elections, we need to keep the “supporting narrative” theme in mind. 2019/07/14  Scytl’s role in Russian attacks and its ‘impact’ on millions of U.S. votes.  By Brian Mohr. https //medium com/@brianmohr/scytls-role-in-russian-attacks-and- its-impact-on-millions-of-u-s-votes-e5f038f37503 Excerpt:  Scytl has followed these same practices in U.S. elections for more than a decade.  In 2009, it registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program. That same year, Congress passed the Military and Overseas Voters Empowerment (MOVE) act.  It instructed the Pentagon’s Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) to “test new or emerging voting technology to better serve overseas citizens and the military.”  Despite years of proof about the lack of security for online elections, In 2010 FVAP awarded Scytl nine of the 20 states slated to use private vendor systems to deliver blank ballots online to military and overseas voters. It was the largest number of states assigned to any of the six contractors involved.  Also that year, Scytl announced it had carried out electoral modernization projects in 14 States for the U.S. General Election. Those sates included New York, Texas, Washington, California, Florida, Alabama, Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nebraska, West Virginia, Washington D.C. https //medium com/@brianmohr/scytls-role-in-russian-attacks-and- its-impact-on-millions-of-u-s-votes-e5f038f37503 Russians invading American businesses big time Also see Medium 2019/10/13  Chicago’s expansion into Ukraine, Moscow a story of cultures, corruption https //medium com/@brianmohr/chicagos-expansion-into-ukraine- moscow-a-story-of-cultures-corruption-8d632833e8f5 Excerpt:  In August 2008, it [Russian Severstal Steel] paid $775 million for Esmark, a U.S. steel company located in Hinsdale, IL….Daley’s approval by the Obama administration for his Metropolitan Regional Center business as a federal EB-5 Regional Center has enabled him to continue to do work on the international stage after leaving office. The designation means his firm, Tur Partners, has the authority to solicit foreign investors for business projects in 14 counties from Kenosha, WI to Chicago to Gary, IN.  EB-5 programs let foreign investors get visas in exchange for investing in American projects. The program has a history of being used by corrupt developers to pay themselves or be paid by investors who are looking for a way to get around sanctions….Earlier this year, in another deal with the Russians, Bouchard’s Braidy Industries announced a $200 million deal with Rusal, a Russian aluminum company connected with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. The western Kentucky plant will make U.S. auto parts. The agreement gives Rusal a 40% stake and Braidy Industries 60%. The project was made possible by Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell  and his vote to lift sanctions on Rusal. In the last six months, he steered about $4 million in U.S. Treasury money to fund infrastructure upgrades for Rusal’s new aluminum plant while blocking $4 million in federal funding meant for Kentucky coal miners’ to pay for their health care and pensions. 2020/09/04; added layoff dot com on 2020/09/28-see below Warning Bells!  Walmart Corruption linked to Black Lives Matter movement.  See Personal Notes for this date for more.

November 8, 2015 by Anonymous196045 I don't see racism as having a reverse it's a two way street. That said yes in Nelson B. C. Canada new management came in and suddenly instead of being multi cultural race etc it shifted decidedly to the middle East and though you have never done anything illegal never stolen or shoplifted if your on the pale side of the spectrum chances are you will be followed around the store by security it's horrible if you suffer PTSD or social anxiety you leave the store and spend the next few days trying to figure out why they are following you, because you have not done anything but spend money on their store tey follow you around every single time it's not you it's that your not middle eastern in decent I can see no other reason. Walmart Canada is racist they are just the politically correct kind of racist. 7 days ago by Nelson bc Never worked at Walmart, but someone I work with now did, and said he was told that because he is older and White, he will never advance very much, and not to expect to climb high at the company. I need to know if this is true, because I will go right back to boycotting WM. I did it for 12 years because of the way they used to prefer Chinese-made goods. If this is true, I will boycott them again. 10 days ago by Conservos | no reactions For two weeks, an underperforming manager off-site was misshipping loads due to gross negligence. I kept asking her to fix it and finally asked for an action plan. I even recorded the conversation where she went off on me. I went from no problems to orange level coaching for literally asking a person to do their job repeatedly, and any attempt in the coaching to explain was literally ignored. She was black. I'm not. That coaching saw me laid off today, 8 months from graduation and can't apply internally either. 4 years of hard work gone because she couldn't be bothered and apparently I wouldn't have. July 30 by Don't Expect a Black Person to Preform [2020/09/28note from PF: this has an unmistakable racial bias - black people can perform as well as anyone else, but the issue here might be: Did both Walmart and one under- performing black person use reverse discrimination on a white employee by retaliating in departmental relocation/layoff practices ]

(italics-PF) MADISON Excerpt on James Madison https /oll libertyfund org/titles/1932#Madison_1356-01_509 On the subject of slavery he and his friends stood together in a frank admission that it was a crushing public and private evil, and he earnestly desired to find a means by which his State and himself might escape from it. On his return to Montpelier from Congress in December, 1783, he took up the study of law, having for one object, as he wrote, to gain a subsistence, depending “as little as possible upon the labor of slaves.” September 8, 1783, he wrote to his father that he was unwilling to punish a runaway negro simply “for coveting that liberty for which we have paid the price of so much blood and have proclaimed so often to be the right and worthy the pursuit of every human being.” In the convention that framed the Constitution Madison and George Mason worked together in opposition to the pro-slavery labors of South Carolina and other Southern States. In the first Congress under the Constitution “The Humane, or Abolitionary Society” of Virginia, composed chiefly, if not wholly, of Quakers, requested him, as “a friend to general liberty,” to introduce their memorial against [xxv] the slave trade and asked his judgment on a proposition to petition the Virginia Legislature for a law declaring all slave children born after the passage of the act free at the age of eighteen for the women and twenty-one for the men.1 This was similar to the scheme of emancipation which Jefferson entertained, but which he did not bring forward, because “the public mind would not yet bear the proposition.” It never became able to bear an emancipation proposition, and Madison lived and died a humane slaveholder opposed to the institution of slavery. 2019/09/25 EARLY BORDER PATROL HISTORY Early Air Mixed in With Cavalry (see photo of early planes with horseback cavalry at top of this section) United States Army Border Air Patrol:  With the end of World War I in 1918, the Air Service, United States Army was largely demobilized. During the demobilization period of 1919, the Regular Army and its air arm answered a call to defend the southern border against raids from Mexico, and to halt smuggling of illegal aliens and narcotics into the United States and weapons from the United States into Mexico. PANCHO VILLA https://www.history.com/this-day-in- history/pancho-villa-attacks-columbus- new-mexico Excerpt: Pancho Villa and United States Army and early Air Patrol 1916:  how things developed to the point of the heightened American presence at the border - it more or less started with Villa attacking Columbus, New Mexico in 1916….Outraged, Villa turned against the United States. In January 1916, he kidnapped 18 Americans from a Mexican train and slaughtered them. A few weeks later, on this day in 1916, Villa led an army of about 1,500 guerillas across the border to stage a brutal raid against the small American town of Columbus, New Mexico….
First Aero Squadron or First Recon Squadron of the Second Army Division, started 1913: The 1st Reconnaissance Squadron is the United States military's oldest flying unit, first established on 5 March 1913. The squadron has maintained an unbroken heritage of over a century from its founding. Originally organized in anticipation of a potential breach in security along the border between the United States and Mexico, General John J. Pershing directed the 1st Aero Squadron to become the first tactical aviation unit to participate in American military action.[1] The 1st RS has flown 47 different aircraft while being stationed worldwide at 52 locations, including 4 stints at sea.[2] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_Recon naissance_Squadron 12th Aero Squadron Dayton-Wright DH- 4 flying liaison with US Cavalry on United States/Mexico border patrol Why this history on border patrol comes up now:  By understanding we have been dealing with this for over a hundred years, how and with whom, we gain a perspective and key insights.  Understanding Pancho Villa and the mythos still with us today also helps. Mexican Cession -  the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 after the Mexican–American War.   The Mexican Cession (529,000 sq. miles; 1 370 104 km2) was the third-largest acquisition of territory in US history.   The Mexican Cession (529,000 sq. miles; 1 370 104 km2) was the third-largest acquisition of territory in US history. Area Mexico ceded to the United States in 1848, minus Texan claims. The Mexican Cession consisted of present-day U.S. states of California, Nevada, Utah, most of Arizona, the western half of New Mexico, the western quarter of Colorado, and the southwest corner of Wyoming. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_C ession#:~:text=Area%20Mexico%20cede d%20to%20the,the%20southwest%20co rner%20of%20Wyoming. Communism History Soviet Union Emerges From October Revolution • February 21, 1848: German economist and philosopher Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels publish The Communist Manifesto, calling for a working-class revolt against capitalism. Its motto, “Workers of the world, unite!” quickly became a rallying cry. • November 7, 1917: With Vladimir Lenin at the helm, the Bolsheviks, ascribing to Marxism, seize power during Russia’s October Revolution and become the first communist government. Later that month, the leftist Socialist Revolutionaries defeat the Bolsheviks in an election, but, despite his promises of “bread, land and peace,” Lenin uses military force to take power. It’s during this period the Red Terror (executions of the Czar’s officials), prisoner-of-war labor camps and other police state tactics are established. Communism Takes Hold in China and Beyond • July 1, 1921: Inspired by the Russian Revolution, the Communist Party of China is formed. • January 21, 1924: Lenin dies at age 54 of a stroke, and Joseph Stalin, who had served as Lenin’s general secretary, eventually takes over official rule of the Soviet Union until his death in 1953 from a brain hemorrhage. He industrialized the country through a state-controlled economy, but it led to famine. Under his regime, detractors were deported or imprisoned in labor camps, and, as part of the Great Purge, 1 million people were executed under Stalin’s orders. • 1940 to 1979: Communism is established by force or otherwise in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Yugoslavia, Poland, North Korea, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, China, Tibet, North Vietnam, Guinea, Cuba, Yemen, Kenya, Sudan, Congo, Burma, Angola, Benin, Cape Verde, Laos, Kampuchea, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Vietnam, Somalia, Seychelles, Afghanistan, Grenada, Nicaragua and others. https //www history com/topics/russia/communism-timeline
