All the way back to 1983 things like this were happening…
This was when none of us saw Donald Trump like that.
I’m thinking about this, and hope it is food for thought for all who visit Fellowship of the Minds.

After China lied about the Wuhan virus and WHO lied to protect them, this guy has some nerve making this statement.
As reported by Time yesterday:
“World leaders must not politicize the coronavirus pandemic but unite to fight it, the head of the World Health Organization warned Monday, reminding all that the pandemic is still accelerating and producing record daily increases in infections.
The comments by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has faced criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, came as the number of reported infections soared in Brazil, Iraq, India and southern and western U.S. states, straining local hospitals.
Tedros never mentioned Trump’s name or the fact that he is determined to pull the United States out of the U.N. health agency but warned against “politicizing” the pandemic.
“The greatest threat we face now is not the virus itself, it’s the lack of global solidarity and global leadership,” he said. “We cannot defeat this pandemic with a divided world.”

I got two words for Tedros: The first word starts with “f” and the second with “y.”

Last night President Trump tweeted out the following Carpe Donktum video:

Liberals’ heads exploded and Twitter made sure to add the “manipulated video” warning.
See all the outrage over on Carpe’s Twitter timeline here.
The U.S. Supreme Court today (June 15) ruled that employers may not discriminate against LGBTQ employees on account of their unconventional lifestyles. The 6-3 ruling appears to extend worker protections to a category that was specifically omitted in the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. The majority decision was written by Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s first nominee to the court. He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s four liberal justices. Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh dissented.
Gorsuch wrote, “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Congress adopted broad language making it illegal for an employer to rely on an employee’s sex when deciding to fire that employee. We do not hesitate to recognize today a necessary consequence of that legislative choice: An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law.”
Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh vigorously dissented, saying the majority had not ruled on existing law, but actually had created new law by judicial fiat.
Alito, writing more than 100 pages in dissent for himself and Thomas, accused the court’s majority of writing legislation, not law.
“The question in these cases is not whether discrimination because of sexual orientation or gender identity should be outlawed,” Alito said. “The question is whether Congress did that in 1964. It indisputably did not.”
Writing separately, Kavanaugh said simply: “We are judges, not members of Congress. Instead of a hard-earned victory won through the democratic process, today’s victory is brought about by judicial dictate – judges latching on to a novel form of living literalism to rewrite ordinary meaning and remake American law,” he wrote. “Under the Constitution and laws of the United States, this court is the wrong body to change American law in that way.”
Federal appeals courts have been split on the question since 2017, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit became the first to rule that gay men and lesbians should be covered by the decades-old federal civil rights law.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled for Zarda in 2018, but the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, ruled against Bostock. The 6th Circuit, based in Cincinnati, ruled for Stephens.
Congress has debated the issue for decades but “repeatedly declined to pass bills adding sexual orientation to the list of protected traits” under the law, the Justice Department told the justices. The Democratic-controlled House passed the Equality Act last year, but the Republican-controlled Senate has not considered it.
Last weekend, Antifa — the radical left group whom the Obama administration had identified as domestic terrorists four years ago — took over, barricaded and occupied six city blocks in the Capitol Hill region of Seattle, WA, and declared the territory as their “autonomous zone” — Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ).
Antifa then proceeded to act like the terrorists that they are by declaring local rapper Raz Simone as their first warlord, “defending” CHAZ with armed guards and homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), and terrorizing the hapless owners of businesses within those six blocks, demanding they pay for “security” and “protection” to the tune of, in one case, as much as $500.
President Trump immediately issued a warning to Demonrat Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan that if they did nothing, he will stop the occupation — a warning that Inslee and Durkan blithely ignored.
It gets worse.
Cristina Laila reports for The Gateway Pundit that instead of dispatching the police or calling the National Guard to dispel the Antifa occupiers, Mayor Durkan, 62, is coddling the occupiers.
Denouncing calling Antifa “terrorists,” Durkan declared her solidarity with the occupiers, insisting that their takeover and occupation of six city blocks to be a “lawful,” constitutional (“first amendment”) and “peace[ful]” “self-expression” of “patriotism,” “free speech” and “community”.
Durkan even oh so thoughtfully provided the terrorist occupiers with port-a-potties.
Durkan also directly defies President Trump’s authority by declaring she will not “allow” the military into Seattle to dispel the occupiers.
The next move is yours, President Trump.
If you do nothing to stop this, this will be the beginning of civil war and the long-predicted break up of the no-longer United States of America.
America has descended into rampant lawlessness.
On May 31, 2020, President Trump said he “will” declare Antifa to be terrorists.
Why the future tense?
Doesn’t Trump know that more than four years ago in April 2016, the Obama administration’s DHS/FBI already had identified Antifa as domestic terrorists?
Antifa are more than terrorists: they are taking over Seattle to set up their own territory.
Last weekend, Antifa took over six square blocks in the Capitol Hill region of the city of Seattle, WA, declaring the blocks to be an “autonomous zone” that belongs to Antifa.
Gateway Pundit reports that Antifa erected barricades around the border of six city blocks and asked “folks with firearms” to take shifts “defending” the barricades.
Antifa are also demanding the businesses within the zone to pay them for “security”. Yesterday, business owners reported threats by the Antifa thugs if they would not pay for their “security”.
Ian Miles Cheong, the managing editor of Human Events, tweeted this social media post by Marcus S., a Seattle business owner:
Emboldened by the inaction of Seattle’s mayor and police, the Antifa terrorists say they will expand the zone and invade police precincts. The Post Millennial reports:
Following the surrender of the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department to an Antifa mob and the occupation of Seattle City Hall, a source on the ground in Seattle says that other police precincts around the city are preparing to be the next targets.
Regarding the autonomous zone established by the Antifa-led mob, the source—whose anonymity we are protecting—says, “They bar media from entering and screen people coming in. They are walking around fully armed. Talking about making their own currency and making their own flag. SPD is talking about abandoning the west precinct now.
“West precinct has the 911 call centre. This is just like the Occupy movement. Soon we will have feces and drugs everywhere and people getting assaulted and raped in the encampments.
According to Andy Ngo, the editor-at-large of The Post Millennial, who had battled Antifa thugs in Portland, OR, the Seattle Antifa have a sub-Reddit forum on which they are posting about making homemade chemical weapons (chlorine gas), how to maintain water supply, and how to use volunteers armed with guns to push police back.
Last night, President Trump warned Washington governor Jay Inslee and Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan — both Demonrats — that if they don’t immediately take back the city, he will.
On ABC’s Nightline on June 1, 2020, Black Lives Matter (BLM) cofounder Patrisse Cullors, who is also a TV writer, claims that “police terror” against “black communities” had gotten worse after Trump became President, and that Trump told police to hurt people. She said:
“We’ve seen a ratcheting up of pushing law enforcement to be more brutal, use excessive force. He has told law enforcement, in his own words to hurt people… And what we know are those people are mostly black people.”
Cullors says BLM is calling for the defunding of police nationwide:
“Many people don’t understand that the foundation of policing is actually in slave patrolling. The first law enforcement agencies were out to catch black people who were leaving — fleeing from slavery. We want to reduce law enforcement in our communities. The more contact we have with law enforcement, the more death is going to happen with black people.”
This is the statement on the Black Lives Matter website (the website supplied the bold emphasis):
Enough is enough.
Our pain, our cries, and our need to be seen and heard resonate throughout this entire country.
We demand acknowledgment and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black life at the hands of the police.
We call for radical, sustainable solutions that affirm the prosperity of Black lives.
George Floyd’s violent death was a breaking point — an all too familiar reminder that, for Black people, law enforcement doesn’t protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them.
Right now, Minneapolis and cities across our country are on fire, and our people are hurting — the violence against Black bodies felt in the ongoing mass disobedience, all while we grapple with a pandemic that is disproportionately affecting, infecting, and killing us.
We call for an end to the systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken.
We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive, but thrive. If you’re with us, add your name to the petition right now and help us spread the word.
Not only is Black Lives Matter calling for police to be defunded, nationwide, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome told the Daily Mail that BLM plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by developing an armed branch of “peace officers” to “combat” police brutality in black communities. Newsome said:
“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities…. We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities.”
The Black Panthers Party in the 1960s created “peace officers” who open-carried firearms while patrolling black communities in order to deter police brutality. Newsome said that the BLM “peace officers” would also be armed and open carry guns in states that allow it.
Back to BLM cofounder Patrisse Cullors.
Like Meryl Streep, John Kerry, Anita Dunn, Nancy Pelosi and John McCain, Cullors also has the unsettling habit of sticking her tongue out like a snake when she speaks. In Cullors’ case, she doesn’t just flick her tongue, she sticks out and rolls her tongue from one side of her mouth to the other.
In the video below, her snake tongue makes its appearance after the 0:24 mark.
Note that exorcists have observed that those who are demon-possessed can take on the look of a reptile or snake. Below are FOTM’s other posts on snake-tongue flickers:
The dictionary defines the idiom “hit someone when he/she is down” as “To criticize, exploit, insult, or otherwise treat badly someone who has already suffered a setback or is in a vulnerable position.”
When a person is already being bludgeoned from all sides, that’s the time to strike your blow. It’s what a rat would do.
The New York Post reports June 3, 2020 that former Defense Secretary James Mattis unloaded on President Trump in a searing opinion piece, accusing him of abusing the powers of his office and of trying to divide the American people as our country is torn asunder by George Floyd riots, looting and burning, with police officers being attacked and killed.
In December 2018, Mattis the globalist resigned as defense secretary in protest of President Trump’s Syria policy because Trump wanted to pull U.S. military out of Syria, ISIS having been brought under some control.
Saying that he was “horrified” by the deployment of smoke cannisters and pepper balls against a mob at Lafayette Park outside the White House on Monday evening. Mattis called Trump’s defense of the White House “abuse of power.” He wrote in an op-ed published by The Atlantic on Wednesday:
“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled.”
Mattis piously announced he supported the “wholesome and unifying” demands of demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd across the nation. He wrote:
“When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens — much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside. We know that we are better than the abuse of executive authority that we witnessed in Lafayette Square. We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
Mattis then called on Americans to reject the President’s calls for cities to be “dominated” by the National Guard — a sentiment shared by another rat, current Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who announced earlier Wednesday that he opposed the use of military to arrest protests and violence.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Wednesday that the order to clear protesters came from Attorney General William Barr, and not the president. But Mattis clearly does not let facts stand in the way of his grandstanding and piling on.
