Wednesday is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, but it appears as though some are not feeling so appreciative.
“f*** the police,” said Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning on Twitter, using the hashtag National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, with a photo of a burning Thin Blue Line flag.
“yearly reminder we live in a domestic military occupation in every major city,” Manning said in a second Tweet.
“my warrantless ‘welfare check’ with guns drawn,” Manning said in a third Tweet, linking to a story from The Intercept.
On May 27, Manning posted two suicidal Tweets, one with a photo standing on a ledge looking down. The police did a welfare check, to which Manning apparently took offense. This is a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation for police, who would have been criticized had they not checked Manning’s welfare. Still, The Intercept wrote a piece that was sympathetic to Manning.
Manning was convicted in 2013 on 21 charges, including six counts of espionage for stealing and leaking classified information to Wikileaks during a deployment to Iraq in 2009. Manning was charged with aiding the enemy, but not convicted, and transitioned to a female in prison, on the federal government dole. Manning’s 35 year sentence was commuted by President Barack H. Obama to just seven years.
The former soldier, who was accused of punching a female superior in the face, among various other disciplinary issues while deployed, ran for U.S. Senate in 2018 and placed second to Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) in the Democratic primary. Cardin won 80.5 percent of the votes.

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.
