B.C. overdoses claimed more lives in May than COVID-19 has claimed all year in the province

Forced economic shutdowns cause people to lose their jobs and contact with friends and family, resulting in a lot of mental pain and suffering. No wonder some succumb to drugs.

As reported by CBC:

The BC Coroners Service said 170 people died of an illicit drug overdose in May, the highest total ever recorded for a single month in provincial history.

It’s also more people than have died from COVID-19 in B.C. all year.

“It’s frustrating to see the number of illicit drug deaths go up and to reach a new high … It’s sad to see this many people impacted, losing their lives,” said Andy Watson, a spokesperson for the coroners service.

The province said 167 people have died of COVID-19 since B.C.’s first case of the virus was confirmed six months ago. The annual total for overdoses in B.C. was 554 as of May 31.

More than 82 per cent of overdose deaths in May involved fentanyl.

Watson said post-mortem toxicology testing suggests there were a greater number of cases with “extreme” concentrations of the opioid in May compared with previous months.

“The rate and the level of fentanyl concentration is the highest that we’ve seen it,” Watson said Thursday.”

Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot: Does she read her own Twitter timeline?

The womyn is on a roll on Twitter telling you to wear a mask to protect yourself and your fellow Chicagoans. Wearing a mask “might” save you; just stay far, far away from the South Side.

But I wonder: Does the good mayor not do her own tweets or read them? Because take a look at two of her tweets from Wednesday:

And her tweet that followed the above (less than 20 minutes later)?

This is why we can’t take them seriously.

Seattle Socialist Sawant: Capitalism is a police state; womyn has net worth of nearly half million

Just like fellow socialist Bernie Sanders, Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant is a hypocrite. Here’s her latest screed on capitalism:

The womyn who hates capitalism? She’s has a net worth nearly half a million. According to a story from The Stranger in October 2019:

Council Member Kshama Sawant estimates her net worth at $490,000 and list an income from both her city council position and as a political organizer for Socialist Alternative, her political party, which pays her between $10,000 and $25,000 a year. Sawant owns a home worth between $200,000 and a million dollars and is married to Calvin Priest, who works for an organization called 15 Now.

Sawant said she would only take $40,000 of the salary and donate the rest, but came under fire after the blog SCC Insight reported that she donated portions of her salary to Socialist Alternative and 15 Now, the two organizations that her family gets an income from.”

For a womyn who sure seems to despise capitalism, it’s made her wealthy. Hypocrite.

LA County orders beaches CLOSED for Fourth of July

Remember peons: You must obey Stay-At-Home Orders, let your hair grow out, and you are not allowed near loved ones in a hospital. But you can attend a BLM protest. In fact, peaceful protesting is your RIGHT.

Bill Melugin from Fox LA tweeted the following last night:

The County also announced they are banning all firework displays.

From Yahoo: “Today, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors announced the closure of our beaches, piers, beach bike paths, and beach access points beginning 7/3/2020 through 7/6/2020. The Malibu/Lost Hills Station Beach Team will be patrolling the beaches throughout the weekend and late into the evening. This new order makes it illegal to trespass at these locations and is punishable by law to include, but not limited to, a $1000 fine.

One way you can get away with breaking rules? Be sure to carry one of the following:

Paging BLM: Another weekend of violence as 55 shot in Chiraq, 3 children dead

Another weekend, another round of gun violence in Chiraq. Where is BLM to ensure that black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise? Apparently they are focused on really important issues to ensure black lives aren’t targeted: The removal of White Jesus.

I scheduled this blog post Sunday afternoon. Don’t be surprised if the shooting numbers go up by Monday morning…they ALWAYS do.

Numbers went up by 8:00 pm Sunday evening: Little boy among 13 shot dead in Chicago so far this weekend, 42 others wounded

From MyFoxChicago:

Four children were among 46 people shot across Chicago so far this weekend, 10 of them fatally. Three of the children were killed.

A 10-year-old girl was fatally shot Saturday night when a stray bullet hit her inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side.

At least 27 other people have been injured by gunfire throughout the city since 5 p.m. Friday.

Last weekend’s gun violence reached a peak this year with 104 shot, 15 fatally. Five children were among those killed.

Sacrificing: Nike reports $790M Q4 loss as sales plunge

Even as online sales increased due to people being shut at home during Wuhan virus lockdowns, Nike reported a loss for the quarter ending May 31.

From Yahoo:

“Sports giant Nike reported a surprise loss Thursday as shutdowns due to COVID-19 prompted a big drop in revenues in spite of higher online sales.

Nike reported a loss of $790 million in the quarter ending May 31, which translated to a loss of 51 cents per share compared with analyst expectations for nine cents per share in profit.

Revenues tumbled 38 percent to $6.3 billion following huge declines in sales in most of the world.

In North America, the company’s biggest operating region, revenues plunged 46 percent to $2.2 billion.”

Paging BLM: The shootings of black people continue in Chiraq

The shootings never stop in Chiraq.

This past Father’s Day weekend, 104 people were shot in Chiraq, 15 of them fatally. Five of the people killed were minors.

Now this from Tuesday: “16 shot, 1 fatally Tuesday in Chicago.”

And where was BLM to protest the black people killed?

So far this year Chiraq has 283 shot and killed, 1,330 shot and wounded and 310 homicides.

Heyjackass.com reports that the 2020 Race of Victim/Assailant Is 74.7% black. See all their statistics here.

I guess tearing down statues is more important than addressing the black lives killed in Chiraq.

Take a look at one of WA ST Gov. Inslee’s new police force task members

In response to the shootings at CHAZ/CHOP, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted the following:

“We are going to take a hard look at how we manage independent investigations of police use of force in WA. Our new task force will recommend actions we can take to create a more just WA. It includes community leaders, impacted family members and law enforcement representatives.”

In this Twitter thread he lists all the members of the task force. This includes Livio De La Cruz – board member, Black Lives Matter SEA-KC.

He/Him: BLM SEA-KC board member and JD candidate Livio De La Cruz

Let’s take a look at Livio (he/him), shall we? From he/him Twitter bio: “JD Candidate 2022 at SeattleLaw. Freelance #Unity3D Programmer #GameDev, He/Him.”

Yes, Livio is going to study law. Which should make you very nervous considering this tweet by he/him on June 22:

“1. Police kill people
2. Seattle protests this
3. Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed
4. White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.
5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

There’s A LOT of presumptive and unproven statements in this tweet. You’d think a JD candidate would be able to back up all of he/him assertions with some facts, right? Here’s he/him following tweet:

“Do you know what it’s like to have people in power call for your death, to have them shout their bloodlust so loudly that the entire country hears it, only to have everyone blame YOU for the death that results from this?”

I’m no JD candidate yet I did take debate class in high school and learned how to prove my case. Here ‘ya go, Livio:

1. “Police kill people”

Yes, police do kill people. They kill in self defense, a criminal committing a crime, protecting a victim from a criminal, and in some cases of police brutality. They also kill people who are unarmed.

Police have contact with MILLIONS of people throughout the US every year. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s database of police-involved shootings, nine unarmed black people were shot and killed by the police, compared to 19 unarmed white people.

What’s your point, Livio, about “police kill people?”

“Police kill people” is a generic statement. Accidents kill people. Rioters kill people. Drugs kill people. A lot of things kill people.

My point is that police kill less unarmed black people than white. What is your point, exactly?

How Seattle “protests”/Q13 Fox News photo

2. “Seattle protests this”

Yes they do. Seattle protests that police kill people while they also loot, riot and burn down businesses. Because nothing says protestors are against police brutality by creating violence throughout your city.

I would also put forth that your definition of “protests” has been arbitrarily expanded to include the illegal occupation of public/private property and terrorization of fellow tax-paying citizens.

3. “Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed”

Please provide evidence where republicans state that PEACEFUL protestors deserve to be shot and killed. We all know that the First Amendment, with qualifiers, applies to protests. Why leave out that one important word? I’ll wait.

For all those “protestors” who riot, loot and burn businesses, yes, they do deserve to be shot. That’s called self defense or affirmative defense, and one has a reasonable right to defend real or personal property. As a JD candidate, do you believe that law-abiding taxpayers and property owners should forfeit their legal rights to protestors?

4. “White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.”

Livio, you provide no evidence of this statement. As a JD candidate, you should understand that you have a duty to provide a burden of proof and evidence that establishes the truth of your statement. Produce something that may pause me to consider your claim.

I know of no white person who showed up at the recent Seattle protests with their guns to shoot and kill. I’ll wait for your evidence.

5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

In the absence of rules of evidence, I guess this conclusion works for you.

Good luck in law school, Livio. And good luck in the courtroom.
