Brave Couple Peacefully Paints Over Giant Black Lives Matter Lettering on California Street, Are Now Wanted By Police

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 02:27

A couple in Martinez, California, peacefully painted over the city-sanctioned giant yellow “Black Lives Matter” lettering in the middle of the road on the Fourth of July.

Police are now looking for the couple, likely harder than they are searching for the terrorists who ripped down statues, looted shops, and destroyed large chunks of cities across the nation.

“The narrative of police brutality. The narrative of oppression. The narrative of racism — it’s a lie,” the man told an upset onlooker.

He explained that he believed the giant Black Lives Matter state-sanctioned vandalism is itself racism.

“There is no oppression. There is no racism,” he said. “It’s a leftist lie.”

As the man filmed the people gathering, the woman bravely painted over the massive yellow letters with a roller of black paint.

“Keep this sh-t in f-cking New York, this is not happening in my town,” the woman yelled at someone who was calling the couple racist for their peaceful demonstration.

“The community spent a considerable amount of time putting the mural together only to have it painted over in a hateful and senseless manner,” Martinez Police Chief Manjit Sappal said in a press release on Sunday. “The City of Martinez values tolerance and the damage to the mural was divisive and hurtful.”

EXCLUSIVE: Martin Shkreli Endorses Kanye West for President, Says He’s Available for Role in the Admin

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 02:09

“Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli has endorsed Kanye West’s 2020 presidential election bid.

In an email to the Gateway Pundit from the federal prison where he is serving his seven year sentence for securities fraud, Shkreli wrote “Yeezy for President,” and that he’s “got my endorsement and vote.”

“I am available for treasury secretary or federal reserve chairman. I could immediately balance the budget and restore sanity to the American balance sheet, replete with debt and runaway spending,” Shkreli wrote.

Shkreli has been talking about a meming West into the presidency since at least 2017.

“Next time, Kanye. Kanye West,” Shkreli said during a 2017 livestream. “Kanye is going to get his revenge as the f-cking president of the United States.”

“It’s the only way to top Trump,” he added, before explaining West’s qualifications.

West announced that he is running on Twitter during the Fourth of July.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” West wrote, along with an American flag emoji and the hashtag #2020Vision.

Telsa and Space X CEO Elon Musk has also offered his full support to the rapper, tweeting at him following the announcement saying, “you have my full support!”

The infamous figure was dubbed “Pharma Bro” after hiking the price of an outdated drug to try to raise money for new research. The drug was still provided to those whose insurance wouldn’t cover it for free or at a low cost. Shkreli was convicted in 2017 in an unrelated securities fraud case.

Atlanta: Triple Shooting Leaves One Dead at Scene of Fatal Shooting of 8-Year-Old Black Girl as Parents Cry, “Black Lives Matter, You Killed Your Own”

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 01:44

There was a triple shooting in Atlanta Sunday that killed one person that took place at the same location as the deadly shooting of an 8-year-old black girl by Black Lives Matter protesters Saturday night. The area of the shootings is near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by police last month as he attacked and fled officers. Since Brooks’ death, protesters torched the Wendy’s and set up armed checkpoints in the area. The 8-year-old girl was killed when the car she was in with her mother came upon a group of armed protesters blocking the road at the Wendy’s. Atlanta police cleared the barriers almost two weeks ago after letting them stand for over a week, but apparently the armed protesters were still blocking roads.

WSB-TV reported (excerpt):

…On Sunday night, officers responded to 1192 Pryor Street, next door to the Wendy’s, and found two people who appeared to have been shot.

A third victim arrived at Grady hospital a short time later.

Police said a 53-year-old man was dead at the scene. A second victim appeared to have been grazed by a bullet and was stable. The third victim was taken to the hospital by private vehicle. That person’s condition is unclear….

Meanwhile the 8-year-old victim was identified as Secoriea Turner.

Turner’s parents spoke to the media Sunday afternoon, saying, “They say black lives matter. You killed your own this time. You killed a child.”

GREAT NEWS! Number of Coronavirus Deaths Down to Lowest Levels Since Beginning of Pandemic – Media Silent – Update: Sunday’s Results Even Lower

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 01:10

More great news ignored by the media.

The number of coronavirus related deaths in the US on the 4th of July reached the lowest numbers since the beginning of the China coronavirus pandemic back in March. 

The number of deaths attributed to the China coronavirus (both actually tested and presumed) reached the lowest number of cases since the beginning of the crisis.  On Saturday July 4th the number of cases recorded dropped to 254 deaths.

March 23, 2020, was the last time time the number of deaths for both actual and presumed cases of the China coronavirus were as low as 254, when the total number of deaths reached 181 nationwide.

These are great news for America as the number of deaths is decreasing daily.

However, the story in the liberal and corrupt MSM is that the number of cases is increasing.  What the media won’t tell you is that the CDC and states are now counting those who had the coronavirus and those who have the coronavirus in these daily tests.  But the number of deaths is at all time lows no doubt due to the faulty counting.

It’s more than clear that the MSM will lie to diminish any good news in the Trump years.  They did this mostly by not sharing the good news.  Today we have good news.  It’s long past time to open up the US economy for good.

Update: The results for Sunday July 5th are in and the number of deaths reported confirmed or presumed related to the China coronavirus are less than the totals from the 4th.

The number of deaths on the 5th were reported at 251:

The media won’t report this because it goes against their desire to keep the economy in check and push for a Joe Biden win in November.  But in two weeks, when deaths are even lower the MSM will have to come up with something else. 

The China coronavirus was real but the reporting and media bias is as corrupt as it gets.  If we all knew the truth, America would be back to work now.

Former Obama White House Physician: “I Think He’s Got Some Cognitive Issues” (Audio)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/06/2020 - 01:00


Dr. Ronnie Jackson and Barack Obama

Former Obama White House physician Ronny Jackson joined Kyle Olson last week to discuss the former Vice President Joe Biden.

Jackson said he believes Joe has “cognitive issues.” That’s an understatement.

Jackson added, “I’m not comfortable with him being my president.”

Breitbart.com reported:

Former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told The Kyle Olson Show that former Vice President Joe Biden needs to take a cognitive assessment and release the results, but that his campaign won’t let that happen.

“I’m not comfortable with him being my president,” Jackson said.

“I think he’s got some cognitive issues,” he continued, before adding that he’s not diagnosing the former vice president and has not examined him.

“But as a concerned American who also happens to be a physician, I’m just going to say it’s concerning to me that he sometimes is not able to complete a sentence, not really know where he’s at or what he’s doing and we’ve seen that countless times now,” Jackson said.

After saying some age “more gracefully” than others, he said, “If he was going to be president someday, that window seems to have closed in my mind.”

Jackson, who was White House Physician during both the Barack Obama and Donald Trump administrations, gave the Montreal Cognitive Assessment to President Trump in 2018 at the President’s request, so Trump could quell criticisms from his foes that he was mental unfit.

After 600 Deaths in 6 Democrat Cities in 6 Weeks – There Was Even More Carnage this Holiday Weekend

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/05/2020 - 23:03

Six Democrat-led cities accounted for 600 deaths over a 6 week period.  Unfortunately there were more deaths this week and BLM doesn’t care.

After explaining that the coronavirus and the economy were not the most pressing issues in the US today, Kevin McCullough at Townhall reported this morning in an op-ed:

The single most important issue, affecting some of the largest swaths of populations in America, is the scandal the media ignores even as it explodes in our faces.

In only six weeks, city after city operated by entrenched Democrats have seen a massive expansion in lawlessness, violence, and murder. Stunningly, many news outlets seem gobsmacked and mystified at how or why such an explosion of lawlessness has occurred.

The crime in these six Democrat-led cities has exploded this year: New York, Chicago, LA, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia.  McCullough concludes:

The single most important threat to our nation at this moment are Democrats who are voting in favor of eliminating law enforcement and who are by extension responsible for the greater and greater increase in the loss of life.

They are allowing Marxists and Anarchists to create complete chaos and disorder. They also seem utterly unconcerned about any lives mattering, black or white.

They appear to be holding on to an idea that they are not impacted by the scum and villainy at play under their jurisdiction.

They even perhaps believe that this is all worth it, if it will allow them to have electoral success in the fall.

McCullough is right.  There was even more violence this past weekend in these same cities:

The Fourth of July holiday weekend across the U.S. was marred by violence as more than 14 were killed and dozens were injured in shootings, including at a nightclub in South Carolina.

In Chicago, a city known for its bloody gun violence, more than 67 people were shot over the holiday weekend and at least 13 were killed, including a 7-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy.

Adriana Cohen at FOXNews claims the slogan for the 2020 campaign is turning into – Jobs not Mobs!

The Democrats are doing whatever it takes to align themselves with radicals and win the 2020 Presidency.  The slogan for 2020 is quickly ending up “Jobs not Mobs.”
