Amid Ongoing Social Breakdown In The US, Trump Administration Continues To Blame China

Minneapolis is one of the cities that has been hardest hit by ongoing social breakdown

As a surge in violent crime engulfs many cities in the US in the midst of the chaos wrought by widespread protests and the pandemic, embattled Minneapolis police have advised residents on survival skills in areas where social order has broken down, offering such tips as “be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” to robbers and “do not walk alone.”

As the city sinks further into decay and chaos, authorities and community leaders remain at a loss as to how to stabilize the situation.

“Do not argue or fight with the criminal,” police said in a July 28 letter to Third Precinct residents. “Do what they say. Your safety is most important.”

Carjackings and other robberies have skyrocketed in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests. Police said there were 20 carjackings and 100 other robberies reported in July in the Third Precinct alone. “Some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted and some threatened with a gun,” police said in the warning to locals.

The Third Precinct, southeast of downtown, was one of the areas most affected by the protests-turned-riots that broke out following the May 25 killing of George Floyd while being detained by Minneapolis police. Ensuing demonstrations and riots in the adjoining cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul marked one of the most destructive periods of civil unrest in US history. Police were forced to abandon their Third Precinct headquarters for their own safety on May 28 as rioters pulled down a fence and set the building on fire.

The Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously in June to replace the city’s police department with a “department of community safety and violence prevention, which will have responsibility for public safety services prioritizing a holistic, public health-oriented approach.”

However, it will be some time before the new strategy can be put into practice, and it remains to be seen if it will be effective or not. The plan will need approval from voters in November, meaning it will primarily affect police resources after 2020, but the city last month took $1.1 million out of this year’s police budget to fund a Health Department program in which staff are sent out to ‘mediate’ disputes.

In the interim period, urgent measures are needed to restore order before the situation spirals completely out of control. Some Minneapolis residents are already adjusting to deteriorating public safety by setting up armed patrols in their neighbourhoods.

Minneapolis police are operating under a court order that bans such tactics as choke holds and requires that any use of rubber bullets or other crowd-control measures be approved by the police chief. More than 150 officers have filed disability claims for post-traumatic stress disorder and other injuries suffered during the protests.

In Seattle, where officers were banned altogether from using crowd-control weapons, Police Chief Carmen Best warned business owners last month that her department would have “no ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.” 

Seattle City Council members introduced a resolution Friday to create a new community safety department that would replace much of the police force.

Police also have been restrained by city leaders in Portland, which had 15 reported homicides in July, the highest monthly total in more than three decades. There were 63 shootings reported through the first 29 days of July, police data showed, up from 28 in all of July 2019. LINK

The difficult times in the US are set to continue as polarization and social breakdown show no sign of abating throughout the country. In the meantime, the Trump administration continues to distract attention from the deteriorating political, economic and social situation in the US and to chase political points by demonizing China, this time claiming that Chinese social media applications – and specifically the video sharing platform TikTok – constitute a national security threat.

They are about to end like Somalia, the crazy warlords will also soon emerge, and maybe they will also make good films about this whole brothel.

Wishful thinking

Sure, though it now emerges that this riots are the biggest in US history, with no parallel even in the 1960s race riots. Together with Covid, it will become a turning point in history. With a professional, intelligent, non-partisan and uncorrupted political class + leadership, buerocracy, media and public, this could surely be pulled around into a new chance for the US. But with the current political class, media, buerocracy, and partisan hatered….
Surely the US wont resemble failed state levels of middle east, africa or Latin America. But this crisis will surely accelerate the decline of the US, until in some decades it will become one of several global powers. The decline wont be as fast or extreme as some here hope in their wet dreams, but it will accelerate the trajectory the US has been in at least since 2 decades.

That’s how Russian media presents the riots, but the main goal of the Russian government is not even to portrait the end of America, mostly to show to the Russians how dangerous the protests could turn and why street protests are a big NO-NO for Russians. On short it shows how shitty Puttin pants are.

SteLe

It is not the Russian media i rely my assement on. Yes, the Russian media is using this and milking it for all its worth. Same as the other way around.And while i read Russian media, as i read all kinds of media, i am able to judge their agenda for what it is. For me to make up my opinion, i try to use the most widest range of sources.
In this case, there is no normal media source that is free of a deeper agenda on this issue. The western media downplays it to not hurt their BLM agenda most journalists in this day have, and the Russian media upplays what they claim is a racist society, and blacks living in some kind of new slavery. Both is far from objective.
So where can one find good neutral coverage?

You can find great analysis and coverage by some independent journalists, e.g. Michael Tracy on Medium and Twitter. Tracy actually travelled through the US crowedfunded (really crowdfounded, not like some Astroturfing Russian..) and documented everything, and also interviewd everone he could find. A rare breed of a journlalist, leaning left but non partisan, which extensive experience at the most prominent MSM outlets, and now as a crowd funded freelancer.
I was sceptical, but his coverage is easily the most non-partisan, comprehensive, intelligent and objective there is on the subject.

US is dying and the post-election unrest will accelerate the process.

“In one of her more radical decisions in August 2018 Kim Gardner announced her attorneys will no longer accept cases from 28 different St. Louis City police officers. Gardner called it her “exclusion list.”
Gardner did not tell the officers what they did to get on her list but they were being censored.

Gardner has been a complete disaster since she entered office as we have reported numerous times.

In July Gardner filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for pulling guns on a mob of BLM activists who had just broken into their gated community and threatened to kill them and their dog and burn their home down.

Now Kim Gardner is caught in a tough primary race against former St. Louis lead homicide prosecutor Mary Pat Carl.

Over the weekend George Soros and his foundation dropped over $100,000 to rescue Kim Gardner in her primary race.”

“Far left billionaire George Soros has been systematically targeting district attorney races throughout the United States for several years now. Many of his candidates are already in office creating havoc across the country.
In St. Louis City George Soros was Kim Gardner’s biggest donor in her race for Circuit Attorney back in 2016.

Kim Gardner may be the most radical Soros-funded Circuit Attorney in the nation today.

Kim Gardner is so intolerable that two dozen attorneys and more than one-third of the trial lawyers left the prosecuting attorney’s office when she was hired. And this is a Democrat dominated office!”

90% of the planet’s Jews live in Israel and the UNSC NATO P3. Where they gravitate to the control positions in society and misuse them to cause enormous problems in these nations and on our planet.

Jews are the primary cause of US destruction.

the silly amerikan antiauthoritarian children destroy themselves—already plagued by the most violent/nonviolent crime per capita, rape, mental illness, obesity, stupidity, they now have destroyed their own economy —looting and vandalism will remedy their racism…LOL
the empire crumbles

He has to exaggerate Chinese threat in order to present himself as a better counter-balance than Biden. His record on economy was actually very good but was nulified by the pandemic and also fueled the protests. So if his accomplishment cannot be presented as a positive anymore, then there is a need for some new topic to emphasize irreplaceableness.

America has become a complete joke of a nation. Whilst not all areas are suffering from this Marxist insurrection, most of its big cities are.

How can anyone one have any hope for America’s future given just how polarized it is?

Here’s a novel idea…. Do your F-king Jobs. Of course that wouldn’t be virtual seeking.

Remember,,, you got the government you voted for. You don’t want police? Get the hell out or buy weapons.

You want law and order? Remove the Mayor, Council and Police Chief. Try them for sedition. Ask for the death penalty. Let the next batch of elected idiots know this or worse will happen if you support terrorism.

Otherwise just shut up and take it.

AmeriTards, the morons are the last ones to admit to anything, because of been the dumbest people on this earth, denile, denile, denile, while their bedside is burning.
Trumpstein, uh, contra, Joe “foot in mouth” Bideet, yeah, I wil probably for the first time in my life actually bother to watch the debate, I await the show in awe, one is an certifyed idiot, and the other one, is an idiot, and while Trump brags, of course nothing is His fault, right its the Nicaragu….. sorry the Chines fault, and if you want idiot propaganda go to ZeroH and stay there, and read Mike “the shoah” Adams along with the staggering rotten Zio Turden, the morons think we are all equally shit for brain as the Yankikes are, because the only reason I go there this days is to get my self an good laugh, apart from that, there is nothing.
Then, when everything is going down, the problems going up, the trillions evaporate, the Fed helicopter is dumping more trillions, gold/silver going thru the roof, and now millions more is going to be kicked out and instead of helping fellow Yankikes the Senatwhores goes on vacation, an month or two, yup, but hey, its the Chines right, the hurra patriots cant think further than into the next week, and ignores the hard facts, UssA is declining, with the curtecy of the Bankers and the elite.

And when the 2 Stuges, whom both can say 6 unbelivable and impossible things before breakfast, Trump the ConDon and the Brits own Bozo the Clown, wile their nations are bleeding more than what they have done for centurys, makes the rest of the european nations nervous and some dripping of news is already drooling something about what to do, because as far I can judge, everything in this two banana republics will be much worse.
But hey, Trump managed to squice Tiktok over to Yankike hands, clap, clap, clap.
And like the ZeroH leauge of staggering dumbf…. blames China for everything, incl the riots, I think the world is slowly awakening to the fact that this two nations, no matter whom is going to winn in the imperial banana republic UssA, I expect two outcomes, either as before an majore war, or an majore crash, the Brits are an joke when the Empire implodes, the rest of the bitches I dont give an rats ass for, they will just go into further decline, you can sit down when you slide downward and wave American flags, why not, flags are after all better to wipe your ass with then mooney and soon, you all will be billionears, and trillionears, yup, when one bread will cost an billion, the Zimbawe effect.

I wrote some years ago, that one day the empire will decline, but to be honest, I didnt expect it to happen this fast, hehe, yeah, next year I recomend the Mexicans to build an wall.
Intresting times, right, what could possibly go wrong.

peace

Warning to SF to avoid becoming marxist propaganda outlet, your friend the saker is already half way thru the process

We just blame China, we just hate them so much……..but not racist at all.

Nothing exposes the racism, hypocrisy, arrogance and selfishness of capitalism and its backers like a major threat or catastrophe. US oligarchy and the American people are unhinged from reality.

A haplotype is a group of genes within an organism that was inherited together from a single parent. There have been 5 separate haplotypes identified around the world in Covid19. The only country where these 5 haplotypes are present is the USA.

This means that the virus marker can prove where the virus came from. China/Japan is saying the US.

This worldwide pandemic will allow us all to compare how different political systems, countries and cultures reacted to the threat. In a year or so, we shall all know how free-market capitalism compares with social-democracies or socialist countries.

Its completely obscene that millions of everyday workers are being laid off by corporations which are in turn receiving trillions in taxpayer funds. Many of these corporations have stashed trillions of dollars away in tax havens and have contributed nothing to the public good. Yet they are being bailed out by corrupt bought and paid for politicians, total abuse of power and completely beyond the law.

Arrest them all and throw them in jail where they belong, if the legal system wont deal with them then we will have too.

Ivan Freely

Forget jail. Just line them up against the Wall, or frog march them to the gallows. Nothing will happen until then.

Goran Grubić HardyVeles

I pray for US. I pray for US Patriots to save their country, to clean the swamp and to restore the Republic.

You guys that hope for destruction of US have limited understanding what is the problem on this planet. It was never US, SSSR or China. It was never a nation, religion or people. The problem are criminals, well hidden behind national flags and international labels. Evil is universal and omnipresent same as good. Hoping for destrucion of any nation, people or religion – you just serve the evil ones. United, not divided.

Where We Go One – We Go All.
God Bless America.
God Bless Earth.
