    ONE DAY AFTER JUDGE WARNS POLITICIANS TO STOP WEIGHING IN ON THE CHAUVIN TRIAL, PRESIDENT BIDEN WEIGHS IN ON THE CHAUVIN TRIAL, SAYING THE EVIDENCE IS “OVERWHELMING” AND THAT HE’S PRAYING FOR THE “RIGHT VERDICT”
    by Kevin Ryan
    President Biden has weighed in on the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, just one day after the trial judge slammed politicians for talking about the case.
    From The Hill: “President Biden said Tuesday that he believes the evidence is ‘overwhelming’ in the case against the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, making clear that he believes the verdict should be guilty.”
    Biden told reporters in the Oval office “I'm praying the verdict is the right verdict.” He made the comments as the jury is deliberating whether to convict Chauvin. Biden said he wouldn’t have weighed in on the case if the jury had not been sequestered.
    According to The Hill, “It unusual for a president to weigh in on such a case, and specifically its merits, before a verdict.”
    Biden’s input comes after the judge in the trial, Judge Peter Cahill, said “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case” and slammed comments by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).
    Waters said “I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty,” and “we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
    Judge Cahill warned such comments “may result in this whole trial being overturned” on appeal.
    Waters and Biden are not the only Democrats apparently trying to influence opinion on the case. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) yesterday said “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.”

    Nothing like alerting the enemy of your plans......

    Washington, D.C. Tuesday morning feels like any other day with some young professionals scurrying to the office and others grabbing a coffee or walking the dog before remote work, but an underlying tension can be felt among the populace as the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial looms.

    The prospect that violence could grip the city is a reality. Because of this, city officials say they have prepared for the worst and the Secretary of the Army has approved the activation of the National Guard. However, the 250 D.C. National Guard troops that are being activated to support the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department won’t be armed. They, instead, are expected to assist with street closures and to keep areas around the city safe. The President is the only one who can authorize the troops to arm “at this time, that’s not a plan.”, a spokeswoman for the National Guard said. She requested anonymity.


    White House officials did not return an email seeking comment. This story will be updated if and when one is received.

    The troops will be unarmed, a D.C. National Guard spokeswoman confirmed to reporter on Tuesday.

    It was just last summer when rioters took hold of city streets, burned a church, looted businesses, and attacked law enforcement officers and members of the media. They did so in the name of racial justice after a video made waves on social media showing then-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin with his knee on George Floyd’s neck as Floyd said multiple times “I can’t breathe.” Despite Floyd’s desperate calls, Chauvin didn’t let up the pressure for nearly nine minutes and Floyd died in police custody.

    Rioters over the summer in D.C were met with pepper balls, rubber bullets, low flying helicopters were deployed and the Attorney General ‘flooded the zone’ with federal agents, troops, and police. According to Axios, the damage to businesses across the country was the most expensive in insurance history, costing over $1 billion.

    The summer left reportedly over 2,000 law enforcement officers injured nationwide.


    The jury is now deliberating Chauvin’s, who is charged in Floyd’s death, case after the prosecution and defense presented closing arguments on Monday.

    A quick reaction force, however, could be approved by the Secretary of the Army.

    “In the event the Metropolitan Police Department does require a quick reaction force, our soldiers and airmen will deploy to provide assistance in crowd management operations alongside law enforcement,” the D.C. National Guard spokeswoman said.

    Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued a Declaration of Emergency (pdf) and announced he’s deploying the Arizona National Guard to the state’s southern border to assist law enforcement dealing with the growing amount of illegal crossings.

    “The situation in our border communities is just as bad—if not worse—than the coverage we’ve been seeing,” Ducey, a Republican, said on Tuesday.

    “It’s become evidently clear that Arizona needs the National Guard, and the White House is aware of that. Yet, to this day, there has been no action from this administration, and it doesn’t look like they are going to act any time soon. If this administration isn’t going to do anything, then we will.”

    More than 172,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended in March along the Southwest border, a 71 percent increase over February, according to a Customs and Border Protection operational update earlier this month. In March, 18,890 unaccompanied minors from Central America apprehended, a 100 percent increase over February, the agency said.


    Up to 250 National Guardsmen will go to the state’s border communities to support law enforcement agencies with medical operations in detention centers, the governor’s office said in a news release. Up to $25 million in state funding will go to the mission.

    The Guardsman will also help with the installation and maintenance of border cameras, collect data from them, as well as from satellite imagery, to looking for current smuggling trends.

    “This drastic surge is a direct result of the bad policy coming out of Washington, DC. And yet, we still haven’t received an adequate response from the Biden administration. It’s clear that they have no plan. They can’t even agree on whether this is a crisis or not,” Ducey said, referring to the increase in illegal border crossings.

    “One day, the President himself says it is the next day others in the administration take it back. I said last month that the Biden administration is totally divorced from reality. Now at times, it seems like they fully understand the reality, and they’re putting their heads in the sand and trying to ignore it anyway.”

    About a month ago, the mayor of an Arizona town said he will declare a state of emergency over the border crisis.

    Gila Bend Mayor Chris Riggs told Fox News he is placing the blame on the Biden administration for transporting illegal immigrants on buses to his town, noting that, particularly due to the ongoing CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic, they don’t have the necessary resources to handle the influx.

    “Border Patrol let us know that they were going to be dropping migrants that had been detained for 72 hours in our town, which we really didn’t understand because we have nothing here,” Riggs told Fox. “We have no charity organizations that can help, no non-governmental organizations that a lot of the larger cities and towns do have to assist these people.”

    He said the town, which is near the U.S.-Mexico border, hasn’t received any federal or state assistance and that illegal immigrants being dropped off in his town can’t get food, lodging, or COVID-19 testing.

    The usual. I haven’t kept up with current cases and was wondering how far the recalled dictator would move the goal posts again.

    No chance right now of moving any goal posts... but here goes

    7 day average positive test rate is 1.3% (this used to be a 14 day average). The last five days is less than 1.1%.
    Hospitalizations are at 2,148, of these 480 are in ICU (22.3% in ICU). The rate earlier was over 30% ICU of hospitalized cases.

    Remember, there are 40,129,000+ people in the state.
    Total + tests= 3,620,301 today... on 2/28/21 the number was 3,479,078
    Total tests= 58,075,920 today... on 2/28/21 the number was 48,712,676

    How many people tested positive more than once in a series of tests over a week or so? To see if they were free of the virus. That would ratchet up the numbers quickly.

    Deaths remained high for an inordinate time period after the last surge... over two months when a month to 5 weeks should have
    been plenty of time. There are 59,804 COVID related deaths.

    Vaccines administered (jabs) is 26,127,571. 6,529,677 partially vaccinated and 10,439,471 fully vaccinated.

    I don't know why my county isn't in the moderate risk level yet... the numbers are good but here we are...

    anything else?

    Xo Biden regime is abusing an already overloaded system...

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/foster-parents-asked-to-take-in-unaccompanied-minors-from-central-america_3784054.html?utm_source=morningbriefnoe&utm_medium=email2&utm_campaign=mb-2021-04-21&mktids=7abf77d74173f4d5dc61eab78e7895a2&est=HQ354dwmciZZQSHQ2UJsD1y1ywMHU0Kfak2BRxjxEs6BxRAdmh+PEltpxTAGT/YxTSA=

    California Foster Parents Asked to Take in Unaccompanied Minors From Central America


    ... She said foster parents are being placed “between a rock and a hard place” because there are currently 30,000 American children in the Los Angeles County foster system waiting for placement.

    ...
    Once an unaccompanied minor is placed into the foster system, they’re automatically on a fast track to citizenship through a special immigrant juvenile status. The SIJ status provides a green card to individuals and entitles them to qualify for state sponsored programs, financial aid, transitional housing, and other supportive programs, according to the Los Angeles County Social Services website.

    ... Currently, the administration is spending at least $60 million per week on detaining more than 20,000 unaccompanied minors.
