George Floyd Case: Police Manual Teaches Knee-to-Neck Restraints (Images)

Posted by FactReal on March 11, 2021

Police Manual: Neck Restraint used to alleviate the risk of asphyxia
Could Minneapolis Police training manual exonerate the four police officers accused of George Floyd’s death? The manual taught officers how to use the knee-to-neck technique to alleviate the risk of asphyxia. Below are the images of the manual as provided to the court.

Democrats Use False Claim re: Capitol Police Officer Death to Impeach Trump

Posted by FactReal on February 17, 2021

During last week’s impeachment trial, Democrats use an unfounded claim that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died after being struck with a fire extinguisher during the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. How Sicknick died it is still unknown.

New York Times Quietly Corrects Major Conspiracy Weaponized By Democrats For Impeachment” (2/15/2021):

The New York Times quietly corrected a major month-old story as the Senate impeachment trial came to a close last week. The article previously claimed a police officer was beaten to death by a fire extinguisher during the January Capitol mayhem. It now appears that is false, but the Times didn’t correct its article until the impeachment trial was nearly over.

The article…now prominently features an “update” at the top of the page…without a concession or apology from the Times for perpetuating a conspiracy about Sicknick’s death that Democrats weaponized to pursue a second impeachment of Donald Trump.

Although ample such evidence publicly available by Feb. 2 discredited the Times’ fire extinguisher theory, this didn’t stop Democrats from seizing on the gruesome conspiracy to amplify their narrative. The Times did not issue an update to its incorrect article until the impeachment trial began to wrap up. The impeachment concluded Feb. 13, more than a week after public information showed the Sicknick narrative Democrats used in their case was materially untrue.

In fact, it still remains unclear how exactly officer Sicknick died. According to ProPublica, “the family got word that Brian Sicknick had a blood clot and had had a stroke” the day after the riot. “A ventilator was keeping him alive.

No evidence of trauma to the head (2/14/2021):

Investigators have found no evidence of trauma sustained by blows to the head, and nobody has been arrested in connection to Sicknick’s alleged murder.

In fact, Sicknick had returned to his job after the Capitol riot, and texted his brother that aside from being pepper sprayed twice, he was otherwise “in good shape.”

PROOF: DEMOCRATS AT TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL KNEW FIRE EXTINGUISHER STORY WAS FALSE BUT STILL PUSHED IT
Timeline of important dates:

1/8/2021 ProPublica: Sicknick had a blood clot and had a stroke:

“He texted me last night and said, ‘I got pepper-sprayed twice,’ and he was in good shape,” said Ken Sicknick, his brother, as the family drove toward Washington. “Apparently he collapsed in the Capitol and they resuscitated him using CPR.”

But the day after that text exchange, the family got word that Brian Sicknick had a blood clot and had had a stroke; a respirator was keeping him alive.

2/2/2021 CNN: Early reports that Sicknick was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true:

According to one law enforcement official, medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.

One possibility being considered by investigators is that Sicknick became ill after interacting with a chemical irritant like pepper spray or bear spray that was deployed in the crowd. But investigators reviewing video of the officer’s time around the Capitol haven’t been able to confirm that in tape that has been recovered so far, the official said.

The case could also be complicated if Sicknick had a preexisting medical condition.

2/2/2021 Democrats’ pretrial memo cites the NYT report falsely claiming:

The Insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.

PROOF: Georgia Election Workers Sent Home at 10:30 PM on Election Night (#SuitcaseGate)

Posted by FactReal on December 5, 2020

LIBERAL MEDIA REPORTS PROVE TRUMP LEGAL TEAM IS TELLING THE TRUTH RE: GEORGIA’S #SuitcaseGate
Election night media reports corroborate Team Trump’s argument that ballot counters and others were told by election officials to leave at 10:30 p.m. on election night in Fulton County, Georgia. Observers and reporters believed the ballot counting was done for the day and left. This allowed Democrat operatives to bring suitcases filled with ballots and scanned them without proper supervision at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

List: Contemporaneous reports from liberal media on election night, Nov. 3, 2020:
ABC News Politics: (Archive, https://archive.is/RCAXk)

NEW: The election department sent the ballot counters at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta home at 10:30 p.m., Regina Waller, the Fulton County public affairs manager for elections, tells ABC News

CNN via AzFamily.com (Archive)

In Georgia, where rules allowed for pre-processing, major counties nevertheless reported backups and sent workers home rather than finish counting overnight.

By 10:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, Fulton — which is the state’s largest county and includes Atlanta — had counted all in-person votes and stopped counting mail-in ballots for the evening. Officials there plan to resume counting the absentee ballots Wednesday morning at 8, Fulton County spokeswoman Jessica Corbitt told CNN late Tuesday.

ABC News (Archived on Nov 5 @ 52:59 a.m.)

Later in the night, Regina Waller, the Fulton County public affairs manager for elections, told ABC News that the election department sent the State Farm Arena absentee ballot counters home at 10:30 p.m. despite earlier intentions to complete processing Tuesday night. Some additional numbers could still come out Tuesday night, but as of now the staff will be back at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

We saw absentee ballot counting at State Farm Arena wrap up at 10:30. Workers will be back in the morning.

New Muslim Democrat Rep. on Trump: We are gonna Impeach the Motherf****r (Videos)

Posted by FactReal on January 4, 2019

MORE “LOVE” FROM THE LEFT
This time the “love” came from new Muslim Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib who called yesterday for the impeachment of Trump by saying: “We’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er.’”

Via ABC News: (1/4/2019)

Freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is not apologizing for profane comments she made Thursday about impeaching President Donald Trump.

Tlaib, who was sworn in as Michigan’s representative from the 13th Congressional District on Thursday, was speaking at an event for progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org when she relayed a conversation with her son to the crowd: “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won, bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby they don’t,’ because we’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf—–.”

The media celebrated Rashida Tlaib making “history”:
Via the Detroit Free Pres: “Tlaib makes history but without Jefferson’s Koran” (1/3/2019)

Tlaib, D-Detroit, was sworn in with the rest of her class, taking a spot formerly held by Rep. John Conyers, but at her ceremonial swearing-in, she decided against using Thomas Jefferson’s copy of the Koran
“I’m going to use my own,” said Tlaib, who becomes the first Palestinian-American woman and one of the first two Muslim women, along with Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, to be sworn into Congress. She spoke just before heading into the ceremonial swearing-in with new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Free Press had earlier reported on Tlaib considering using the Jefferson text, a 1734 translation of the Koran into English that resides in the Library of Congress. But Tlaib said her earlier decision was never meant to be final and that she changed her mind some time ago.

“Why uplift someone else?” she said. “It’s starting a new era in social justice. … It just occurred to me: Why am I not using my own?”

For the record, Tlaib did wear a traditional Palestinian thobe, or dress, which her mother — who was there for the swearing-in — made for her, as she was sworn in.

Via CNN: Rashida Tlaib made history with her swearing-in. Here’s what to know about the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress (1/3/2019)

During her campaign, Tlaib — a member of the Democratic Socialists of America — embraced progressive ideas like Medicare-for-all, a $15 dollar minimum wage and debt-free college as well as calls to abolish ICE and impeach the President. Just last month, she tweeted, “Can we please start the impeachment process now?”

When the new Congress gets underway, Tlaib will have a high-profile platform on Capitol Hill to confront the President and try to shape the agenda of the new House Democratic majority. The question now is what will she do when she gets to Washington?

Tlaib has broken barriers and glass ceilings before
The 42-year old has had “first” status before. She is the first of 14 children born to Palestinian immigrant parents and the first in her family to graduate from high school as well as college. She was also the first Muslim woman to serve in the Michigan state legislature.
“When I won it was just a moment of light in this time that was pretty dark for a lot of us,” Tlaib said, reflecting on her election to Congress.

NOTES TO PONDER:
– How many white Americans/Christians are being elected in Muslim countries?
– Why the Left worries so much in breaking the record (“the first in U.S. history”) and not in doing what is right (i.e., keeping America free and prosper)?

Comey: “I Sent FBI to Flynn, Broke Protocol and Got Away with It” (Video)

Posted by FactReal on December 17, 2018

DID COMEY LURE FLYNN INTO A PERJURY TRAP?
Video shows ex-FBI Director Comey explaining how he:
* Kept Flynn unrepresented by legal counsel and unaware of the true nature of the meeting
* Violated protocols and policies which are always in place regardless if the administration is new or not.
* Took advantage of fledgling Trump Administration

REPORT: Ex-FBI Director Comey Explains How He Took Advantage of Fledgling Trump Administration:
“Former FBI Director James Comey, speaking to an appreciative audience in New York on Sunday [12/9/2018], told NBC’s Nicole Wallace that he sent two FBI agents to visit then-National Security Adviser Mike Flynn at the White House on January 24, 2017, because he figured he could get away with it,” reported CNS News.

VIDEO & NOTES TO PONDER:

* Comey proudly stated he broke the rules…because he could:

FROM VIDEO ABOVE:

WALLACE: “You look at this White House now, and it’s hard to imagine two FBI agents ending up in the State room. How did that happen?”

COMEY: “I sent them.” [Audience celebrated.]

COMEY: “Something we’ve — I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation — a more organized administration.

* Did Flynn think the FBI agents were there as colleagues/co-workers and not as investigators (where he was the target), and thus, Flynn wasn’t exact in his recollection of his phone conversations weeks prior?
On the video, Comey acknowledged they didn’t tell Flynn the reason for the FBI visit:

FROM VIDEO ABOVE:

WALLACE: “What did he [Flynn] think they were coming over there for?”

COMEY: “I don’t think he knew. I know we didn’t tell him.”

* They wanted Flynn unguarded, so they made him think this was a normal chat between pals:

FROM VIDEO ABOVE:

COMEY: “And I thought, it’s early enough, let’s just send a couple of guys over.”

“And so we placed a call to Flynn, said, hey, we’re sending a couple of guys over. Hope you’ll talk to them. He said, sure. Nobody else was there. They interviewed him in a conference room at the White House Situation Room, and he lied to them. And that’s what he’s now pled guilty to.”

FROM COURT DOCUMENTS:
Mueller’s court documents (attachment B, page 4 of 6), show they decided not to tell Flynn it was an investigation:

Before the interview, McCabe, [redacted] and others decided the agents would not warn Flynn that it was a crime to lie during an FBI interview because they wanted Flynn to be relaxed, and they were concerned that giving the warnings might adversely affect the rapport.

* Flynn was unguarded, jocular and did not lie, according to FBI agents who talked to Flynn
FROM COURT DOCUMENTS:
Mueller’s court documents (attachment B, page 4 of 6), show the FBI agents who talked to Flynn on January 24, 2017, found that Flynn was:

relaxed and jocular…unguarded and clearly saw FBI agents as allies…talked about various subjects, including hotels…the President’s knack for interior design….Flynn was so talkative… [FBI agents] Strzok and [redacted] both had the impression at the time that Flynn was not lying…The agents left Flynn in a collegial, positive way.

* Video above shows the audience celebrating Comey’s remarks about violating protocols and rules.
“Those same liberals applauding him wildly would presumably be appalled if a police detective proudly described how he prevented a criminal suspect from speaking to a lawyer simply because he could,” points out Jonathan Turley [see below].

ANALYSIS:
Constitutional Law Professor Jonathan Turley wrote a great critique of Comey’s admission on TheHill.com: ‘No glory in James Comey getting away with his abuse of FBI power‘ (12/15/2018)

[Emphasis added]

“I probably wouldn’t have … gotten away with it.” Those words this week from former FBI Director James Comey could well be chiseled in marble as his epitaph. He was explaining another violation of bureau policy during his tenure

What was shocking was not that Comey violated protocols or policies again but the reaction of the audience to his admission. In describing how he set up a critical meeting with Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to President Trump, the audience was audibly thrilled by his cleverness in keeping Flynn unrepresented by legal counsel and unaware of the true nature of the meeting. […]

… Now Comey has again admitted to violating rules and protocols, by setting up Flynn. […]

What was Comey’s justification? Because he could. He refers to the “process” of other administrations. That process, however, was still in place and did not change. Moreover, he noted that he thought he could get away with it because this was “early” in the administration. That is not principle. >It is opportunism. He was supposed to work through the Justice Department and not simply follow the rules only if he might be caught breaking them. […]

… There was nothing noble in Comey seeking to reduce the chance that Flynn might have legal counsel. Those same liberals applauding him wildly would presumably be appalled if a police detective proudly described how he prevented a criminal suspect from speaking to a lawyer simply because he could. […]

Comey seemed to delight the audience by taking credit for keeping Flynn in the dark about the FBI interview. When Wallace asked what Flynn thought the FBI agents wanted, Comey replied, “I don’t think he knew. I know we didn’t tell him.” Actually, Comey didn’t tell anyone. Not the White House counsel, not the acting attorney general, not the Justice Department. He “just sent a couple of guys over” to the White House because he could “get away with it.”

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: COMEY’S ADMISSION ON HOW THEY TRICKED MICHAEL FLYNN FOR FBI INTERVIEW:
Place: 92nd Street Y (cultural center) on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, NY
Date: Sunday, December 9, 2018
Host: NBC’s Nicole Wallace
Full video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xqGu66D6VU
or https://www.facebook.com/92ndstreetY/videos/2196969490544212/

WALLACE: “You look at this White House now, and it’s hard to imagine two FBI agents ending up in the State room. How did that happen?”

COMEY: “I sent them.” [Audience celebrated.]

COMEY: “Something we’ve — I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation — a more organized administration. In the George W. Bush administration, for example, or the Obama administration.”

“The protocol, two men that all of us perhaps have increased appreciation for over the last two years.” [Audience applauded.]

“And in both those administrations there was process. And so if the FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official, you would work through the White House Counsel and there’d be discussions and approvals and it would be there. And I thought, it’s early enough, let’s just send a couple of guys over.”

“And so we placed a call to Flynn, said, hey, we’re sending a couple of guys over. Hope you’ll talk to them. He said, sure. Nobody else was there. They interviewed him in a conference room at the White House Situation Room, and he lied to them. And that’s what he’s now pled guilty to.”

WALLACE: “What did he think they were coming over there for?”

COMEY: “I don’t think he knew. I know we didn’t tell him.”
