A former college professor from the Bay Area took a plea deal and received probation after being arrested on four counts of felony assault with a deadly weapon stemming from his actions at an Antifa rally in April.

“According to Alameda County Superior Court records, Clanton entered a “no contest” plea Wednesday to one misdemeanor battery charge,” wrote Berkleyside. “The felony charges against him were dismissed, and an allegation that he had caused serious bodily injury was stricken. A misdemeanor charge that Clanton wore a mask during the commission of the crime also was dropped.”

Eric Clanton, former philosophy professor at Diablo Valley College allegedly struck seven people with a bike lock wrapped in a sock at right wing free speech rally that turned violent when Antifa protestors showed up. The rally took place at UC Berkeley.

“Police wrote that they had found evidence last year during a search of Clanton’s home in San Leandro linking him to “Anti-Fascists and Anarchy political groups,” according to court papers,” the piece said. “He was not home when police arrived, so officers moved to a second address in West Oakland where they said they found flags, patches and pamphlets “associating Clanton” with antifa and anarchist groups. Investigators arrested Clanton there.”

Items found in Clanton’s home included U-locks, sunglasses, a glove, jeans, and facial coverings which he allegedly wore during the April 15 melee.

“It wasn’t the first time Clanton had been arrested in connection with East Bay demonstrations, police said last year. On Jan. 9, 2014, the California Highway Patrol in Oakland arrested him at Highway 24 and Interstate 980 during a Black Lives Matter protest on suspicion of committing a “public nuisance,” and “willfully and maliciously” blocking a street, sidewalk or other public place. Both are misdemeanors. Police reported no charges in that case, however, or any prior convictions.”

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million

Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.

Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.

Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.

Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”

“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.

“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.

Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.

Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.

Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:

While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.

Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.

However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.

Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.

“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.

Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
