Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this morning.

The Trump Secretary of State discussed the Chinese app TikTok, the Chinese human rights abuses and the postponed election in Hong Kong.

At the of 8:45 mark in the interview, Pompeo said the following about China’s recent strong arm tactics in Hong Kong:

Well, COVID-19 is not the reason for the delay in the election. The reason for the delay, there was scheduled to be an election in Hong Kong is September 6th. The reason for the delay is that the Chinese Communist Party candidates would be crushed and the freedom loving people of Hong Kong would prevail and the leadership in Beijing simply can’t permit that to happen.

Look, this is part of what we are seeing happen all across the threat from the Chinese Communist Party, increased denial of freedom for people in their own country and then extending that.”

Man Loses Job After Pulling A Gun On Protesters

Police Release Video Of Protesters Pointing Gun At Him

A man seen pulling a gun on protesters in a viral video soon lost his job, but police posted another video showing that a protester pulled a gun on him as well.

The incident happened during a protest on Friday in Louisville, Kentucky.

A screenshot from the video went viral on social media as people condemned the man according to the misleading and incomplete information provided.

There was no evidence provided to confirm the claim that the man was a Trump supporter.
The man was eventually identified as Jim Geisler and he lost his job at American Air Filter Co., which released a statement explaining the decision.

“AAF Flanders supports the right to peacefully assemble as an expression of free speech,” said a spokesperson for the company.

“In our view, the actions of this individual show poor judgment and are inconsistent with the core values of our company,” the spokesperson added. “As such, this individual is no longer with the company.”

Louisville Metro Police declined to file charges against the man despite the demands from many on social media, and posted an explanation on its Facebook page.

“Yesterday, during the protest activity in the Hurstbourne/Shelbyville Rd area, individuals were observed surrounding and inflicting damage on a vehicle at the traffic light on Hurstbourne Pkwy. During this event, a woman who was participating in the protest pointed a handgun at the occupant of the vehicle, placing him and others in extreme danger,” the post read.

“Fortunately, officers were able to move the crowd away and took her into custody a short time later without incident,” the post added.

Protesters say that that is also an incomplete video about what happened.

“I wasn’t even thinking about my life, in that moment, I was thinking about everyone else that was around, which is why I drew my weapon back,” Robin Ash, the woman who was arrested, told WHAS-TV.

“His gun was pointed, I mean, directly at me, it was like I walked up and his gun was specifically for me, was the way I felt at that moment,” she told the outlet.

David Mour, an attorney for Ash, said he was going to sue the police department for defamation and slander over what he termed a malicious prosecution. Ash was charged with wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and for being a convicted felon in possession of a handgun, but she argues that a governor’s pardon in 2015 restored her civil rights.

In a GoFundMe campaign page set up for Geisler, a friend of the family gave his version of the events.

“On Friday, 9/18, Jim Geisler was on his way home from work, and was confronted by protesters on Hurstbourne Parkway in Louisville, KY. While at a stoplight, Jim’s car was approached by the menacing group. They gathered around his car while causing considerable damage to his car. A female protester pointed a gun at Jim,” the post explained.

“Jim’s personal safety, and the integrity of his vehicle/property were at stake,” it added. “He was forced to protect himself. He raised and pointed his firearm at the group in an attempt to ward Them off.”

The campaign has raised more than $8,000.

MSNBC Guest Says Kentucky AG ‘Skin-Folk’ But ‘Not Kinfolk’

After Charges In Breonna Taylor Case

Retired Los Angeles police sergeant Cheryl Dorsey, a black woman, seemed to suggest that Kentucky’s black attorney general is not truly black because of his handling of the Breonna Taylor case.

Dorsey appeared on MSNBC on Wednesday to react to grand jury charges announced against one former officer involved in the death of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman who was killed by police in March. Earlier that day, former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three charges of first-degree wanton endangerment for allegedly “blindly” firing 10 rounds into Taylor’s apartment during a police raid the night of her death.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron led the investigation into Taylor’s death. He appeared at a press conference on Wednesday to defend his office’s conduct and review of the case, and answer questions on the grand jury indictment.

“I certainly understand the pain that has been brought about by the tragic loss of Miss Taylor. I understand that as an attorney general,” Cameron said. “I understand that as a black man how painful this is, which is why it was so incredibly important to make sure we did everything we possibly could to uncover every fact.”

“There was not a day that the people in this office did not spend thinking about this case,” he continued. “Criminal law is not meant to respond to every sorrow and grief, and that is true here. But my heart breaks of the loss of Miss Taylor.”

Dorsey rejected Cameron’s remarks and appeared to suggest that the Republican attorney general should have pushed for tougher charges, possibly for murder, against the officers involved.

Well, listen. Not only is he being intellectually dishonest about that, you know, I find all of his remarks with regards to this whole entire press conference offensive. … Let me say this as a black woman. He does not speak for black folks. He’s skin-folk, but he is not kinfolk. And so just like he thinks they can’t speak for Kentucky, because he is up there with a black face, he does not speak for all of us. This was not a tragedy. This was a murder. He should be ashamed of himself.

The grand jury charges in Taylor’s death have been expected since Monday. The Louisville Metro Police Department declared a state of emergency ahead of the announcement in anticipation of potentially violent unrest in the aftermath.

“In anticipation of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, I am declaring a state of emergency for the Louisville Metro Police Department,” Police Chief Robert Schroeder wrote in a memo Monday.

To ensure that we have the appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services and our policing functions, effective immediately the LMPD will operate under the emergency staffing and reporting guidelines as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedures, Emergency Response Plan, and collective bargaining agreements until further notice,” he said.

CNN, Broadcast Networks Ignore Hunter Biden Revelations

Others Downplay Senate Report

There was a widespread blackout of television coverage surrounding the damning revelations from the GOP-led Senate report on Hunter Biden’s foreign financial ties.

The Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their monthslong joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.”

However, in addition to new findings regarding Biden’s ties to Burisma, the report states that Senate investigators found millions of dollars in “questionable financial transactions” between Hunter Biden, who is a son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow as well as individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

According to the report, an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden, Rosemont Seneca Thornton, “received $3.5 million in a wire transfer” from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of the Russian capital.

Much of the day’s on-air coverage was dedicated to the charges against a Louisville police officer involved in the tragedy that led to Breonna Taylor’s death. Both CNN and MSNBC along with the three broadcast networks managed to give far more airtime to Cindy McCain’s not-so-surprising endorsement of Joe Biden.

The news outlets that covered the report, however, portrayed the Senate Republicans’ findings as if there were no new revelations.

The New York Times ran the headline, “Republican Inquiry Finds No Evidence of Wrongdoing by Biden.” Politico similarly ran, “GOP senators’ anti-Biden report repackages old claims” as did BuzzFeed News’ “Republicans’ Hunter Biden Report is Filled With Old, Unsubstantiated Allegations and Debunked Theories.”

The Washington Post went even further to exonerate the former VP with its headline, “GOP senators’ report calls Hunter Biden’s board position in Ukraine ‘problematic’ but doesn’t show it changed US policy.”

Critics also pointed out that many of the written reports neglected to mention the Senate report’s key findings regarding Hunter Biden’s $3.5 million Russian wire transfer and his business ties with Chinese nationals.

The media’s efforts to largely downplay the Senate report stands in stark contrast with the endless coverage the press dedicated to the infamous Trump Tower meeting involving President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and Russian nationals during the 2016 election, which garnered much attention amid the Mueller probe.

The 87-page report released on Wednesday went into greater detail about Hunter Biden’s ties to Burisma, stating that Obama administration officials “knew” that Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma was “problematic” and that it interfered “in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.”

Hunter Biden joined Burisma in April 2014 and, at the time, reportedly connected the firm with consulting form Blue Star Strategies to help the natural gas company fight corruption charges in Ukraine. During the time Biden was on the board the company’s board, then-Vice President Joe Biden was running U.S.-Ukraine relations and policy for the Obama administration.

Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma received heightened scrutiny amid President Trump’s impeachment last year.
