Should We Be Protesting About George Floyd or Julian Assange?
Paul Craig Roberts
Some Americans are so pathetic they don’t even know what gender they are. A female with a vagina thinks she is a male. A male with testicles and a penis thinks he is a female. Those among us who are normal are supposed to be oh-so-concerned about these confused people that we stop using gender pronouns. He/she/him/her have become transphobic. If you persist in using the English language, you are uncaring and, well, evil to boot.
The transgendered are busy at work making themselves into another preferred minority with all the special privileges in law that that designation brings. I wonder what happens when everyone needs the protection of the special privilege designation, and men and women no longer exist.
Somehow I cannot imagine a country absorbed in transgender issues being exceptional and indispensable, as the neocons say we are, much less being a military power. I very much doubt that Russia and China regard a country as a military threat whose population is confused about what gender they are.
Looking at the evidence, I would say that America has had its 15 minutes of fame. What convinces me that America is all washed up is Americans’ acceptance of the horrors inflicted by the American/British police state on Julian Assange. In Assange’s treatment we see the violation of every human right. And the Western public has accepted it.
Instead of protesting against the persecution of a truth-teller, agents of the Establishment, pretending to be “peaceful protesters,” are burning and looting properties belonging to black, Asian, white, and Hispanic business owners and destroying public monuments for no other reason than a felon, misogynist, drug addict, George Floyd, killed himself by overdosing on Fentanyl.
John Paul Leonard writing in the Unz Review first brought my attention to George Floyd being a drug addict. Unlike CNN, MSNBC, BBC, NPR, New York Times, Washington Post, or any of the corrupt presstitute media, Leonard pointed out that the medical examiner’s toxicology report accompanying the autopsy of Floyd’s death clearely indicated a lethal dose of the dangerous opiod, Fentanyl, in Floyd’s blood.
Fentanyl causes breathing problems that lead to death. Prior to Floyd’s restraint, he complained to the police that he could not breathe and asked to be removed from the police car and to lay down on the ground. We know this from the released police recordings. The presstitutes did not report this fact, but the recordings were released.
When an experienced officer, Chauvin, appeared on the scene he recognized a drug overdose problem and had medics called. Floyd was on his stomach so that he would not choke on his own vomit as Fentanyl can produce nausua. The intentionally misinterpreted “knee-on-the-neck” is a restraint technique that is taught to police. It is not deadly. Chauvin used this common practice to keep Floyd, who was having difficulty absorbing oxygen, still in an effort to minimize his oxygen use and thereby prolong his life until medics arrived, hopefully equipped with naloxone. If given promptly, naloxone can treat a Fentanyl overdose by binding to opiod receptors and blocking the effects of the drug. Fentanyl is such a strong opioid that multiple doses of naloxone are usually required.
Some medics are eqipped with naloxone. No doubt this was what Chauvin hoped.
Instead of attending to the facts, the despicable American media intentionally created the impression that Chauvin had intentionally murdered Floyd in an act of white racism. This lie was used to support the New York Times 1619 Project, an insult to America that alleges in the absence of any evidence that the United States originated as a white supremacist society that enslaved blacks in an act of racism.
The result of the intentional lies that the US is based in racism and that black Floyd was murdered by white police have been the destruction of billions of dollars in black, Asian, white, and Hispanic businesses and public monuments, the abandonment of the defense of property and law and order by Democrat-controlled cities and states, and a stand-down of the police, which has left people at the mercy of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Democrats have tried to arrest and prosecute white Americans who took legal steps to defend their property and have left others to fend for themselves when stopped in traffic and surrounded by thugs demanding money.
The toxicology report accompanying George Floyd’s autopsy shows Fentanyl in his blood at the concentration of 11 ng/ml. This is a fatal dose. Therepeutic concentrations of Fentanyl, that is, those prescribed by doctors, range between 0.63-2.0 ng/mL.
Fentanyl is equipotent to morphine at doses that are 50–100 times lower. In other words, Fentanyl is 50-100 times stronger than morphine. Post mortem serum concentratons of lethal doses of Fentanyl begin at 5 ng/mL. Floyd had more than twice this concentration. The danger of Fentanyl rises when taken in combination with other drugs. The toxicology report shows Floyd with a Methamphetamine concentration of 19 ng/mL and a concentration of Delta-9 Carboxy THC of 42 ng/mL. Like Fentanyl, a meth overdose causes, rapid, slowed, or irregular heart rate, difficulty breathing, heart attack, stroke, agitation. The THC in the cannabis part of the cocktail increases the toxicity of the cannabis. Floyd also had serious heart problems which made his drug cocktail more dangerous to him.
I spent a lot of time researching Fentanyl and published the findings on my website. The URLs for the evience will be again provided at the end of this article.
Death by Fentanyl overdose is common. Several tens of thousands occur annually, and music stars have been among the casualties.
In contrast to drug addict George Floyd who killed himself, the police state treatment of Julian Assange by Washington and the British government and the mentally sick media of both countries goes unprotested.
It is OK with the American Establishment if you loot and riot and destroy private property and statues of Washington, Jefferson, Lee, and Grant. But you must not tell the truth. That was Julian Assange’s great crime. He told the truth.
If telling the truth doesn’t get you arrested, it gets you cancelled and banned from the print and TV media and from Facebook, Twitter, Google and the rest of the monopolies.
Assange became a target of the corrupt Obama regime in 2010 when he published the leaked Afghanistan and Iraq war logs that revealed Washington’s lies and deception of its dumbshit gullible allies, the utterly stupid British, German, and French governments. Assange signed his death warrant when he released the US military film of US soldiers happily murdering journalists and civilians who were walking along a street. The icing on their fun was when they machine-gunned a father and two very young children who stopped to help those wounded and bleeding from the American machine-gun attack.
Both Sweden and the UK quickly responded to their Washington master’s demands and issued arrest warrants for Assange. Sweden and the Western media pretended that Assange had raped two Swedish women, a fabrication that Sweden had to twice drop, and the corrupt British pretended that by accepting political asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador in London Assange had jumped bail. Sweden falsely pressed the rape charge in the face of the evidence that the two women who had seduced Assange and had taken him to their beds merely wanted him to take a medical test to determine if he was aids free. By not having enough sense to agree to the test, Assange destroyed his life.
Assange has been detained illegally for a decade, first under house arrest in England, then for 7 years in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London, and now in solidary confinement in a maximum security prison in the UK since April of 2019. Washington, desperate for revenge on Assange for exposing American war crimes and lies, has spent years trying to invent charges against Assange. The compliant American media helped by portraying Assange as a Russian spy.
What Wikileaks did is no different from what the New York Times did when it published the leaked “Pentagon Papers” or what the New York Times, The Guardian and other newspapers did when they published some of the leaked documents made available by Wikileaks for which only Assange is being persecuted. The difference is that the New York Times, The Guardian, and the rest of the media whores willingly abandoned journalism to serve as propaganda ministries for the ruling elites. Julian Assange is the last living journalist in the Western World, and for that reason he is hated by the pretend journalists who are well aware that they are nothing but whores.
Many have been puzzled that the so-called “news media” has not gone to the support of Assange on the grounds of defending the rights of a free press. But the presstitutes willingly gave up a free press and are happy to see the last remaining embarrassment to them finished off. It is much more comfortable, and no work, to be inside the Establishment’s fold.
As there is no valid case against Assange, the British are holding him in torture-like conditions while pretending to weigh Washington’s request for extradition. If Assange dies in prison or his mind is destroyed by illegally administered drugs and abusive treatment, Washington will have achieved its aim of getting rid of him and Wikileaks, and the blame will be on the dumbshit British puppet.
Not only has Assange done nothing except practice journalism, but also he is an Australian citizen in Europe charged with violating the US Espionage Act. The ridiculous charge itself assumes the universality of US law. In other words, not only does US law apply to an Australian citizen, everyone in the world is subject to US law.
When you think about the neglect of Julian Assange by every allegedly “free country” in Western civilization, while hordes of ignorant thugs run around destroying property with government acquiescence because a drug addict overdosed himself, a stark picture of the utter immorality and total stupidity of Western society emerges. This is what we should be concerned about and protesting about, the neglect of the good and the celebration of the bad.
A good case can be made that the West should be destroyed, but not because of the false allegation that the West is “white supremacist.” Indeed, the West has already destroyed itself by abandoning belief in itself and its principles. There is no doubt whatsoever that white people have lost the confidence in themselves and their achievements necessary for their survival. They are guilt-ridden and prostrating themselves before those bent on their demise. White people everywhere except perhaps in Russia are living The Camp of the Saints.
Floyd Killed Himself, Officer Chauvin Had Nothing whatsoever to do with Floyd’s Death
Nowhere in the media is there any mention of Floyd’s existing serious health conditions, his drug addiction, and the level of fentanyl in his blood that was in excess of a fatal dose. The medical examiner’s report has been ignored by the presstitute media and by public authorities including the prosecutor who indicted officer Chauvin.
The consequence of a fentanyl overdose is inability to breathe and heart failure. Look it up yourself. I have provided the link in previous columns, and here it is again – https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/fentanyl
“Can you overdose on fentanyl? Yes, a person can overdose on fentanyl. An overdose occurs when a drug produces serious adverse effects and life-threatening symptoms. When people overdose on fentanyl, their breathing can slow or stop. This can decrease the amount of oxygen that reaches the brain, a condition called hypoxia. Hypoxia can lead to a coma and permanent brain damage, and even death.”
“Synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, are now the most common drugs involved in drug overdose deaths in the United States. In 2017, 59.8 percent of opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl compared to 14.3 percent in 2010” — https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/fentanyl
“Among an estimated 70,200 drug overdose deaths in 2017, the largest increase was related to fentanyl and its analogs with more than 28,400 overdose deaths. However, these numbers are likely underreported.” — https://www.drugs.com/illicit/fentanyl.html
Oxfordtreatment.com gives the fatal dose as 2 milligrams – https://www.oxfordtreatment.com/substance-abuse/fentanyl/lethal-dose/
Drugfreeworld.org gives the fatal dose as 3 milligrams – https://www.drugfreeworld.org/newsletter/issue13/the-truth-about-fentanyl.html
According to harmreductionohio.org, 700 micrograms (less than one milligram) is an overdose from which death is likely. One milligram (1000 micrograms) carries the risk of “death near certain.” Two milligrams and death is certain and unavoidable. A dose of 250 micrograms (one-fourth of one milligram) can kill a non-tolerant user.
“Conventional medical wisdom is that 2,000 micrograms is the ‘minimum lethal dose’ — in other words, the smallest amount that can be fatal. This estimate is far too high. Two thousand micrograms (2 milligrams) of pure fentanyl injected into a vein would cause even most heavy heroin users to overdose — especially if fentanyl is mixed with any other substance, such as heroin, alcohol or Xanax.” https://www.harmreductionohio.org/how-much-fentanyl-will-kill-you-2/
These are extremely small amounts. “Rescuers responding to overdose calls have to be careful—just touching it or inhaling it can be deadly.” — https://www.drugfreeworld.org/newsletter/issue13/the-truth-about-fentanyl.html
“Reported post- mortem serum concentrations of patients who have died from fentanyl overdoses range from 5–120 ng/ mL. The pills recovered in our series had 600–6,900 lg/pill of fentanyl. Even with oral bioavailability of about 30%, each pill can readily deliver enough fentanyl to result in toxic serum concentrations.” http://uthscsa.edu/artt/AddictionJC/2020-02-11-Sutter.pdf
First notice the case title:
CARDIOPULMONARY ARREST COMPLICATING LAW ENFORCEMENT SUBDUAL, RESTRAINT, AND NECK COMPRESSION
What is this telling us? According to the Oxford English Dictionary, subdual means overcoming or quietening. The title says that the ability of the police to deal with Floyd was complicated by Floyd’s undergoing cardiopulmonary arrest and that the report investigates the issues of restraint and neck compression. As for the restraint and neck compression, no life-threatening injuries resulted. As for Floyd’s cardiopulmonary arrest, that is explained by the toxicology report. Floyd was already experiencing breathing and cardiopulmonary arrest prior to police restraint.
Note the extensive heart disease that Floyd had:
II. Natural diseases
A. Arteriosclerotic heart disease, multifocal, severe
B. Hypertensive heart disease
1. Cardiomegaly (540 g) with mild biventricular
2. Clinical history of hypertension
Note the finding of No life-threatening injuries:
III. No life-threatening injuries identified
A. No facial, oral mucosal, or conjunctival petechiae
B. No injuries of anterior muscles of neck or laryngeal
C. No scalp soft tissue, skull, or brain injuries
D. No chest wall soft tissue injuries, rib fractures (other
than a single rib fracture from CPR), vertebral column
injuries, or visceral injuries
Notice the fatal dose of the opioid fentanyl in the toxicology report:
VI. Toxicology (see attached report for full details; testing
performed on antemortem blood specimens collected 5/25/20 at
9:00 p.m. at HHC and on postmortem urine)
A. Blood drug and novel psychoactive substances screens:
1. Fentanyl 11 ng/mL
2. Norfentanyl 5.6 ng/mL
3. 4-ANPP 0.65 ng/mL
4. Methamphetamine 19 ng/mL
5. 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC 1.2 ng/mL;
Delta-9 Carboxy THC 42 ng/mL; Delta-9 THC 2.9 ng/mL
6. Cotinine positive
7. Caffeine positive
With such strong evidence that George Floyd destroyed himself, there should have been no arrest of any police officers until a thorough investigation was made. Even ordinary people unaware of Fentanyl and its lethality should have wondered why officer Chauvin called for medics if he wanted to kill Floyd. Instead of proper procedure a grandstanding district attorney arrested Chauvin, and the American media, which long ago lost any scrap of integrity it ever had, convicted Chauvin in the press. There is no way that Chauvin can get a fair trial. In the face of the lethal dose of Fentanyl, it is a travesty of justice to bring Chauvin to trial.
A country without an honest media is doomed. It does not matter who is president or which party is in power. Without an honest media, lies prevail over truth. That is clearly the situation in the United States and throughout the entirety of the Western world.
