Trump’s In Office, Media Suddenly Concerned with US Military Killing Civilians

Quote:
For the last eight years, Peace Prize recipient and ostensible savior of the free world, Barack Obama, rained down hell from the sky on brown people across the Middle East. Obama far exceeded his predecessor, George W. Bush, in the use of drone strikes, killing more civilians than ever before and aiding in the creation and growth of worldwide terror.

On top of this warlord president receiving the Peace Prize, in his final days in office, Barack Obama was ironically given the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service “as a token of appreciation for his service as commander in chief” at a farewell ceremony on January 4. The medal is the highest honorary award at the Department of Defense and is presented by the Secretary of Defense.

In his last year alone, Obama authorized the United States military to drop more than 26,000 bombs in 7 countries, according to an estimate by the Council on Foreign Relations. During the prior year, the numbers were similar.

An estimated 50,000 bombs in only 24 months fell onto houses, churches, schools, and hospitals — all authorized by the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize — his supporters, as well as the corporate mainstream media, remained silent.

Fast forward to last weekend.

Following in his predecessor’s footsteps, reports from Yemen indicate that as many as 10 women and children were killed in a raid authorized by Donald Trump. During this raid, the 8-year-old granddaughter of Nasser al-Awlaki, who was also the daughter of Anwar Awlaki was shot in the neck and died after suffering for two hours, according to Nasser al-Awlaki.

What makes the tragedy of this 8-year-old girl killed by Trump stand out, however, is the fact that Obama killed her older brother and her father — who were both US citizens — who were extrajudicially murdered without trial.

But no the mainstream media treats King Trump the same as O-bomber. For Muhammad's sake. At least some attention is being paid to the murder machine. it is just to bad that when the brat prince was lackadaisical in his mass murder the fake news machine was to busy keeping up w/ the kardasians and if the one w/ the Olympic medals was going to have "their" naughty bits removed or if norths sibling was going to be named "south" then they were w/ the thousands of bodies being left in the wake of their messiah the great O-bomber.

Be careful with Free Thought Project articles. Here's one:

"Flint Residents Told That Their Children Could Be Taken Away If They Don't Pay for City’s Poison Water"

Fake.

Fake.

The caffeine DUI is true. The DA just recently dropped the charges a month or so ago. I followed that case. Very bizarre.

Somnambulance is a $10 word that spell check does not recognize. I did not add it to the spell check dictionary but I heard something close to that before. Sonambulance?

edit: I think the suffix is ambiance after giving it a lot of thought. Wordsmith that I endeavor to be.

The DA admitted she's charging Mr. Schwab with intoxication but that the drug he used was not on the list of tested-for drugs. She denied charging him with a caffeine DUI for which she did have blood test data. She confessed that she has no blood work to uphold her charge, opined the case will be a hard case to press and win, but that she's going forward with it regardless.

Mr. Schwab was not charged with a caffeine DUI. He was being prosecuted with a charge of intoxication with "some" drug, though no physical evidence supports the charge. The system has screwed with Mr. Schwab, badly, but the screwing is more a function of the DA being whacked rather than a particular flaw in a flawed system.

Technically you are correct, but this is a case with a very public defense strategy that controlled the narrative.

This popped up on my radar in 2015. It made the rounds in legal circles due to its bizarre circumstances and the skill of the defense attorney and the DA’s office continuing to provide ammunition for the defense. The Solano County District Attorney's Office lost control of this case early on and let the defense set the narrative. Schwab tested positive only for caffeine. The DA’s murky and vague statements gave Schwab’s attorney, Stacey Barrett, far too much leeway to run with connecting the dots of Schwab pulled over, arrested, tested only positive for caffeine, moving forward with prosecution with caffeine being the only positive test. The defense even used statements by forensic toxicologists regarding the absurdity of being prosecuted for driving under the influence of caffeine. The DA set themselves up for this being a prosecution regarding driving under the influence of caffeine by continuing to prosecute the case with no evidence other than caffeine, and the defense ran with that. Once this reached critical mass, the prosecutor had to drop the case that should have been dropped after there was no chance of discovering anything substance other than caffeine in Schwab’s system.

This case took on a life of its own and will always be referenced as the “caffeine DUI case because of an inept DA’s office and a not inept defense attorney.
