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.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
