Jacob Blake Posts Message On Social Media: ‘Change Y’all Lives,’ ‘It’s Nothing But Pain’

Published

on

Over the weekend, an attorney representing Jacob Blake, the man shot seven times by police officers in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, shared a video message from Blake from his hospital bed. In it, Blake encourages people to “change” their “lives,” putting a strong emphasis on the pain he’s experienced after being shot last month during an attempted arrest.

“I just wanna say, man, to all the young cats out there, and even the older ones, older than me, there’s a lot more life to live out here, man,” Blake says in the video.

“Your life,” he went on, giving a quick snap of the fingers, “and not only just your life, your legs — something that you need to move around and to move forward in life — can be taken from you like this, man.”

“And I promise you, the type of s*** that you’ll go through — staples, I got staples in my back, staples in my damn stomach — you do not wanna have to deal with this s***, man. Twenty-four hours, every 24 hours, it’s pain, it’s nothing but pain. It hurts to breathe, it hurts to sleep, it hurts to move from side to side, it hurts to eat,” he added.

“Please, I’m telling you, change your lives, out there” Blake pleaded. “We can stick together, make some money, make everything easier for our people out here, man, because it’s so much time that has been wasted.”

During an attempted arrest last month, Kenosha police shot Blake seven times after he opened his car door and reached inside the vehicle during an attempted arrest, media reports and clips of available video indicate. Officers were initially called on scene to respond to a domestic disturbance.

As a result of the shooting, Blake is reportedly now paralyzed from the waist down.

It’s tragic this man’s life is now forever altered for the worse, but if we are being honest, there’s no one to blame but himself. He could have prevented this whole thing had he simply complied with the police and not attempted to reach for some kind of weapon in his car.

We can blame the police for this incident as everyone else is doing, or we can accept that Blake played a significant role in what happened to him. It’s not victim blaming. It’s simply the truth. Personal responsibility is severely lacking in our world today.

Paging Fox Mulder: Pentagon Could Open Permanent UFO Office in Coming Months

In yet another case of life imitating art, it appears as though we’re about to have out own government funded X-Files office.

Published

The truth is out there, and the Pentagon is ready to commit to searching for it full-time.

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have heard more from their government on the subject of UFO’s than ever before.  This is thanks to a number of well-documented sightings from within the military, and a massive glut of disclosure that was forced out of the CIA through an amendment to a COVID-19 relief bill.

Now, amid this rise in interest, the Pentagon is getting serious about the subject.

Tucked into the House of Representatives’ lengthy fiscal 2022 National Defense Authorization Act proposal lawmakers passed Thursday evening is a provision to form a permanent office under the Defense secretary, where officials would investigate government- and military-provided reports of unexplained sights in the sky.

That office would “carry out, on a department-wide basis, the mission currently performed by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force,” according to a less-than-five-page section in the House’s NDAA, which was put forth by Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., a Marine Corps combat veteran.

The office would work to standardize the way in which the DOD documents the phenomenon.

Specifically, officials within that hub would develop a means to synchronize and standardize the collection and analysis of such incidents across federal departments, search for links between these occurrences and foreign governments, evaluate how much of a threat the sightings pose, work with U.S. allies to assess the origins of UAPs and more, the text notes. Starting Dec. 31, 2022 and annually through 2026, the Defense secretary would be required to supply multiple Congressional committees with reports on such phenomenon. Among other topics, those materials would need to include analyses of relevant data collected through geospatial, signals and human intelligence, details of any notable patterns in sightings, and evaluations of health-related effects on people who encountered UAPs. Many of these recommendations were alluded to in that preliminary document from the task force.

Giuliani Jilted: Fox News Bans Rudy and Son from Appearing on Network

This, after Rudy was integral in bringing Fox News to the mainstream.

Published

on

In the latest bit of fallout from Donald Trump’s first term as President, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been banned by Fox News.

Giuliani, who served as the personal attorney for Donald Trump during much of his presidency, is currently in legal limbo, having lost his ability to practice law in New York while facing a rather sizable defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Now, as many continue to wonder how much influence Trump will have on the future of the Republican Party, Giuliani has taken a major publicity hit.

Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.

The decision was particularly troubling for Rudy.

A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.

Giuliani’s son Andrew is also reportedly banned from the network, although no official reasoning has been given for either action.
