Tucker Carlson: CNN hates the idea of Buckhead trying to leave the city of Atlanta

  Tucker Carlson: CNN hates the idea of Buckhead trying to leave the city of Atlanta Tucker Carlson discusses the surge in crime in the wealthy Atlanta neighborhood of Buckhead.The reason for that is the current mayor, a spectacular mediocrity with unusually high self-esteem called Keisha Lance Bottoms. Like so many big city mayors, Bottoms is an incompetent demagogue. She has no idea what she’s doing, and she’s willing to say anything. For while, that was tolerable to the people of Buckhead. Like most people who live in cities, they know the drill. They’re used to it. Then, last summer, things changed.

23:40 , Justin Vallejo

Kim Dotcom, a fellow tech entrepreneur and target of the US government facing a long prison sentence, suggested tax charges against John McAfee came soon after the pair discussed creating an anti-surveillance phone that would “piss the mass spying US govt off”.

How the Torres Strait's culture, geography and colonial experience is shaping crime and justice

  How the Torres Strait's culture, geography and colonial experience is shaping crime and justice In the Torres Strait, it can sometimes take hours, even days, for police to arrive after a crime's been reported. And often, by the time officers step foot on the island, the situation has been resolved. Research shows islands in the Torres Strait, which stretch for 150-kilometres from the northern-most tip of Queensland to the coast of Papua New Guinea, have lower property crime rates than many non-Indigenous communities.A recent Australian Institute of Criminology report debunks the generalisation that all Indigenous communities are riddled with crime.

In another tweet to a McAfee video about the deep state, Dotcom said the deep state is real and is run by corporate interests that control spy agencies, politicians, judges, fake news media, big tech and people in power.

“Extradition is now a tool of oppression. It gives US Empire global jurisdiction to throw ppl in jail just by charging them,” he added.

Janet Yellen, then the chairman of the Fed and now the secretary of the Treasury, denounced Uhlig, effectively, as a racist. "Defund the police! We’ll be safer if we do." That’s what they were saying a year ago, everyone in charge. It was lunacy — and precisely because it was lunacy, no one was allowed to disagree with it.

“It is that negative, unsocial not life-supporting part of the human-animal that needs power. Nothing else needs power. And so we give people power over others through government, through military, and we expect them not to be corrupt,” he said.
