If society collapses, do you have the medical supplies you need? Check out “The Medic,” or as I like to call it, the Big Daddy of first aid kits.
Social media has been awash in discussions about the U.S. Navy putting a virtue-signaling mask on its logo, left-wing hysteria over the Supreme Court’s defense of the First Amendment, and David Hogg’s withdrawal from his woke pillow company. But perhaps the most notable news has been recently published research regarding the consequences of the Black Lives Matter. Its conclusions were shocking, and despite the study being highlighted by Vox, woke progressives seemed to shy away from publicizing its details.
Article by Jose Backer from Liberty Nation.
According to the University of Massachusetts Amherst, census-designated places with Black Lives Matter protests saw a 15% to 20% drop in police use of lethal force during the period analyzed from 2014 to 2019. Ultimately, this equals an estimated 300 fewer police homicides in locations where Black Lives Matter protests occurred. Combined with the drop in property crime-related arrests, left-wing activists likely had their own Mission Accomplished moment before reading the supplementary data. This revealed a shocking 1,000-6,000 additional homicides in the protest locations. Cue the radio silence from social media’s liberal echo chamber.
The explanations for these insane numbers may be apparent to Americans who understand the police’s role in society. Although calls to defund or abolish the police have declined in popularity, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to theorize what might happen when a police force is neutered and scapegoated. Did liberal Democrats really expect officers in places like Baltimore, Ferguson, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Seattle would continue to insert themselves into hostile situations and risk their lives to do their job when they see the race riots and devastation Black Lives Matter protests have caused to communities?
Thus far, social media seem to have completely backed off the research findings, refusing to discuss them in good faith. Instead, many have made accusations that the research is non-conclusive and is pending final peer review. It’s important to note that the study did not consider figures from 2020, perhaps the most eventful year for the Black Lives Matter movement in terms of violence and destruction in cities across America. The spiking homicide rates throughout major U.S. cities that had significant Black Lives Matter protests in 2020 are most likely reflections of this research, but that won’t stop Democrats from shifting the narrative to advocate for gun control. Expect ongoing denial about the consequences of radical protests and riots to come from Democratic politicians who just want to see historic American values tarred and feathered at any cost.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!
