Maxine Waters Cancels Event Over Death Threat. Guess Who She’s Blaming?

Published

Maxine Waters

Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the same woman who has tirelessly hated on President Trump by calling for his impeachment and has most recently called for the continued harassment of Trump cabinet members has had to cancel two separate events due to death threats.

We’ll give you three guesses who she’s pointing the finger at for the craziness she’s enduring, but the chances are high you won’t need two of them.

“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement reported by CNN.

“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”

U.S. Capitol Police have provided no further details as they do not comment on ongoing investigations.

Last weekend, Waters found herself the talk of the town after making controversial statements in support of “protesters” coming out of the woodwork to harass members of Trump’s administration. Waters celebrated gleefully when Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant because of her affiliation with President Trump.

The same sort of treatment was also given to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who was harassed at a Mexican restaurant until she was forced to leave, all due to her support of the president’s enforcement of current U.S. immigration policy.

While there is absolutely no excuse for ever making a death threat against another human being, is it really all that surprising that some nutcase out there would take this route? Waters is practically throwing gasoline on the fire of an already explosive political climate and strangely has the expectation that she won’t get burned in some way.

Both sides need to chill out the rhetoric and learn to converse with one another like regular, decent human beings. It’s really not that difficult, but with the way Waters struggles to treat folks with respect, you’d think it was tougher than moving mountains.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

Lebron james

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
