*NIGHTMARE! EX-NYPD COMMISH BRATTON WARNS OF U.S CRIME REVOLUTION:
Painting a dire portrait of crime and policing in America, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton
laments he has “never seen it so bad in terms of the potential for
continued disarray,” pointing to a return to the dangers of the 70s and
80s. “We are a country – in cities, all of our cities – whose social
norms of behavior and criminal justice system are in extreme disarray,
and it’s getting worse, not better,” Bratton, who has spent 50 years in
policing, running police departments in New York City, Boston, and Los Angeles. Bratton
noted disturbing trends in Democrat-run cities – “tilting incredibly
fast to the far left” – working to reduce police forces while civil
unrest burns. “We are rapidly moving toward a repeat of the 70s and 80s
that led to our worst crime year in our history in our country, 1990,”
Bratton said. “In city after city, shootings, murderers, violence, and
other forms of crime are on the increase. And nobody’s paying any
attention to it. It’s amazing. They will start paying attention to it
farther into the summer because there’s no sign that it’s going to
There had been progress in the past 30 years, Bratton noted, but it has become erased at one shake of a former child’s toy. “It’s an Etch-a-Sketch moment,” Bratton said. “It’s as if all of a sudden all of the good has been erased, and all we’re focusing on is the bad.” Bratton does admit there are bad police officers who need to be dealt with, but vilifying the good people risking their lives to protect our cities is demoralizing them, too. “It’s understandable that they are demoralized; unfortunately they’re going to get even more demoralized if you look at what’s going on in the criminal justice reform movement,” he added.
*THE GLOBAL DIVIDE ON HOMOSEXUALITY PERSISTS:
Despite major changes in laws and norms surrounding the issue of same-sex marriage and the rights of LGBT people around the world, public opinion on the acceptance of homosexuality in society remains sharply divided by country, region and economic development. As it was in 2013, when the question was last asked, attitudes on the acceptance of homosexuality are shaped by the country in which people live. Those in Western Europe and the Americas are generally more accepting of homosexuality than are those in Eastern Europe, Russia, Ukraine, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. And publics in the Asia-Pacific region generally are split. This is a function not only of economic development of nations, but also religious and political attitudes. But even with these sharp divides, views are changing in many of the countries that have been surveyed since 2002, when Pew Research Center first began asking this question. In many nations, there has been an increasing acceptance of homosexuality, including in the United States, where 72% say it should be accepted, compared with just 49% as recently as 2007.
*SIBLINGS OF BLACK COP INVOLVED IN GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH WANTED HIM TO BE CHARGED:
The mother of former Minneapolis police officer J. Alexander Kueng, now facing charges of aiding and abetting the murder of George Floyd, told the New York Times
that her son had joined the police force to bridge the gap between
races. In a painfully sad interview, Kueng’s white mother Joni Kueng
said she raised him alone after his father, who was from Nigeria,
left. She said he was troubled after a Black sibling was harassed by
police and decided to join the force. “He said, ‘Don’t you think that
that needs to be done from the inside?’” his mother said, referring to
increasing police brutality against Black offenders.
“That’s part of the reason why he wanted to become a police officer—and a black police officer on top of it—is to bridge that gap in the community, change the narrative between the officers and the black community.” Floyd’s death occurred on Kueng’s third shift as a full officer with the Minneapolis Police Department. Kueng sister Radiance told the Times that, as a Black man, her brother should have intervened. She planned to change her surname. “I don’t care if it was his third day at work or not,” she said. “He knows right from wrong.” Another sibling, Taylor, called for the arrest of Kueng.
*HARVARD GRAD BLAMES ‘TRUMP SUPPORTERS’ AFTER BEING FIRED FOR HER ‘DREAM JOB’ OVER TIKTOK THREAT:
A Harvard graduate is blaming supporters of President Donald Trump after being fired from her “dream job” at financial services and consulting firm Deloitte LLP after she made a “threat” against individuals who say “All Lives Matter” instead of “Black Lives Matter.” Claira Janover posted a video to TikTok several days ago, and in it, she used a poorly crafted metaphor to explain the difference between “All Lives Matter” and “Black Lives Matter” — a metaphor that read, to some on social media, as a direct threat of violence.
complained about “the nerve, the sheer entitled Caucasity to say ‘All
Lives Matter’” and talked about “stabbing” as a way of demonstrating the
difference between “All Lives Matter” and “Black Lives Matter.”
“I’ma stab you,” Janover says in the video, zooming in on her face.
“I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show
you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.’” She says the “stabbing” bit was meant to be an analogy, according to the New York Post, but the diatribe cost her her job, regardless.
“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me
in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” Janover said in a
new video posted to TikTok Wednesday. “The job that I’d worked really
hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of
everything.” “During the video, Janover gestured to what appears to be a
page from the company’s website and noted that she was axed ‘even
though they claim to stand against systematic bias, racism, and unequal
treatment,’” per the post. Her
now-former employer, Deloitte, has not made a statement in regards to
Janover’s dismissal, but Janover suggests she was targeted by “Trump
supporters” who simply did not want to hear her message.

CHILDBIRTH SITE WANTS LESS GENDERED LANGUAGE LIKE, “BIRTHING PERSONS”:
child birthing information web portal likely received a spike in
traffic after it posted a new list of suggested “woke” terminology to be
used when speaking about the birth of a baby. Suggesting a switch to
more “gender-inclusive” language sparked considerable mocking on social
media. For example, the mother should now be referred to as a “birthing
person” and the act formerly known as breastfeeding should be called
“Part of its
mission, though, is to make the childbirth experience less-gendered, and
in order to do that, you need to use less-gendered language. For
example, instead of ‘mother,’ use ‘birthing person.'” – via Twitchy.com. We get it. The farthest edges of the liberal Left side of our world is intent on eliminating all gender references.

population of 1,000, with one in 10 wearing masks, keeping an

|Stocks: A global stock market crash on March 12 set the worst single-day decline for stocks since 1987. But in Q2, major indexes clawed their way back on the promise of economic reopenings. Filled to the brim with tech companies, the Nasdaq has distanced itself from the Dow and the S&P. Fed: The Fed slashed interest rates in March to stem the economic bleeding, and in early June said it would hold rates near zero through 2022. Oil: In late April, oil prices crashed below -$37 a barrel as plummeting demand from lockdowns left traders with nowhere to put their oil. Following an agreement by OPEC+ to reduce supply by 9.7 million barrels a day, prices are slowly rebounding back to March’s highs.
