From the newly-released transcripts that are part of a legal filing by Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, who has requested that the Hennepin County District Court dismiss the case against his client: The transcripts reveal that as the officers forced Floyd into the vehicle, the 46-year-old black man said: “I can’t breathe” and “I want to...

Once again, here is the link to the official medical examiner’s report of the autopsy which was released “with the consent and cooperation of Mr. George Floyd’s family and their legal representatives”— First notice the case title: CARDIOPULMONARY ARREST COMPLICATING LAW ENFORCEMENT SUBDUAL, RESTRAINT, AND NECK COMPRESSION What is this telling us? According to the... Read More

I have searched the Internet and cannot find the alleged second autopsy—the so-called “independent autopsy” hired by “George Floyd’s family.” I have no difficulty finding the official medical examiner’s report, but there is no sign of a second autopsy. Those of you who are convinced it exists please send me the URL. It will prove... Read More
As readers know, I am a long-time critic of gratuitous police violence. My many columns on the subject have cost me readers who saw my columns as undermining the police and thereby law and order. I agree with readers that crime is real and that there is a danger that punishing the police for abusing... Read More
The US is under attack not only by the Covid virus but also by ideas that have deracinated a significant percentage of white people from their culture and history. It is an indication of end times when the self-inflicted death of a felon strung out on a fatal overdose of an opioid can result in... Read More
Within the last few days two commentators I respect—The Saker and Dmitry Orlov—have written that the United States is now undergoing systemic collapse. My view, reflected in my articles published over the years, is that the United States ceased to exist decades ago. It is only the foundational strength of the country put in place... Read More
Have you noticed what I have noticed—that of the trillions of words in print and on the air, there are precious few that are not garbage. Among the few commentators I read is The Saker. He sees the US in systemic collapse— . Other commentators who I read, such as Dmitry Orlov, see the collapse... Read More
This is an introduction to a letter written by a black American professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He says that the University no longer serves scholarship and has become a servant to the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. He says that the university is akin to a suppressive regime that crushes real... Read More
The November presidential election has been racialized by the Democrats, media, white liberal elites, and the George Floyd protests. The racialization makes this election a watershed. The Democrats, media, and white liberal elites have placed the responsibility for the multi-city rioting and looting by blacks on white Americans for being racist. Although the evidence is...

The presstitutes’ story is that George Floyd died from asphyxiation—“I can’t breathe”—from a police officer’s knee on his neck. This story is not supported by the autopsy and toxicology reports. The autopsy report says Floyd died of a heart attack and that no life-threatening injuries were inflicted by police restraint. The medical examiner found no... Read More
George Floyd was not killed by police. According to the toxicology report, Floyd died from a concentration of Fentanyl in his blood three times the fatal dose. Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid 50 times more potent than heroin. You can read the analysis here— . A link is provided to the autopsy report. Think about... Read More
Hi Dumbshit American. Have you had enough of diversity and multiculturalism? If not, vote a Democrat president, and the second wave of peaceful protests will loot and burn down your homes and neighborhoods. Be sure you understand that diversity means no more white statues and white history, because they are racist. Multiculturalism means no more... Read More
I have come to the conclusion that collectively Americans are mentally and emotionally stupid. On any given day there is endless evidence that this is the case. Just a few selections from news of the last couple of days should suffice to establish the point. Instead of reforming police training as a rational response to... Read More
The Saker writes that “the systemic collapse of the US Society has begun.” Actually, US societal collapse has been underway for a long time. What The Saker means is that now it is obvious. Organized violence and looting in many American cities with pre-deliveries of bricks as weapons of destruction. Police and government officials kneeling... Read More
If white people are racist, how was Obama twice elected president of the United States? That such questions do not occur to those shouting “white racism” indicates weak minds, the presence of anti-whites out to make mischief, and people who speak on the basis of an unexamined assumption that has been drilled into their heads....

The Obama regime’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, the most unqualified person ever to have had that job, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that the organized burning and looting violence of the George Floyd protests “is right out of the Russian playbook” — Other nutcases are blaming “foreign adversaries” such as China. Susan is not... Read More
Precisely as I reported– –Minnesota police received Israeli training. The knee-on-neck is an Israeli restraint hold that Israeli forces use for breaking Palestinian necks. I doubt the Minneapolis cop intended to kill Floyd. He probably thought he was just using a restraint technique. In so many of the cases of police-inflicted death and injury there... Read More
Is It Racism When Police Murder and Brutalize White People?
Dear Readers, It is June and my quarterly request for your donations. Your financial support is the only indication I have of whether my explanatory efforts are appreciated sufficiently to be continued. There are other more pleasant or more remunerative ways to use my remaining time. The monthly donors are the financial backbone of this... Read More
Antifa blacks, an outfit of the Democrat Party, went on a looting and burning rampage in Atlanta. The female police chief and female mayor let it happen the first night. The female police chief protected the police rather than the city. She changed her mind when the governor sent in the National Guard. She reports... Read More
