Monday News Roundup: Armed Democrat Support Group is now Killing Kids

It was a quiet July 4 weekend in Chicago… – Only 77 human beings were shot and 14 killed. This is what is known in Chi-town under Mayor Lori Lightfoot as a “lull in the action.” As is always the case, the vast majority of those Americans are black, and some of them were just kids.

And Black Lives Matter does not care about them.

From a piece at the Chicago Sun-Times:

Chicago was left reeling over the Fourth of July weekend as citywide gun violence left multiple children killed for the third weekend in a row.

As of 11:20 p.m. Sunday, 77 people have been shot, 14 of them fatally, including two children shot dead Saturday night. Nine other gunshot victims were minors.

Ten children under 18 have died in Chicago gun violence since June 20, according to Chicago Sun-Times records.

The weekend is already more deadly than Independence Day weekend in 2019, when five were killed and 65 others wounded. In 2018, 14 people killed and 87 wounded citywide in holiday weekend shootings.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot prepared for the historically violent weekend by deploying an extra 1,500 Chicago police officers — something the city did in 2019 — but the gun violence continued unabated.

Two more children killed

On Saturday night, 7-year-old Natalia Wallace died after being shot while visiting her grandmother at a party in Austin.

She was outside where kids were riding on bicycles when three gunmen stepped out of a car and let off more than 20 shots in the 100 block of North Latrobe Avenue, Chicago police said.

Natalia died at the scene of a gunshot to her head, officials said. Police were reviewing video from the scene and have taken a person of interest in for questioning.

[End]

No one at Black Lives Matter had word one to say about this. No condemnation of the killers – who are almost all also black – not a word of sympathy for the families and not a word of criticism for the worthless Mayor, who is their ally after all.

De Blasio’s campaign to destroy the Big Apple continues apace. – Things are equally awful in New York City, where shootings are up 205% from a year ago in the wake of Major Warren Wilhelm’s insane decision to willy-nilly release violent felons from prison using the COVID-19 excuse.

The other big contributor is of course Wilhem’s decision to slice the budget for the NYPD, including the disbanding of its highly-effective crime prevention unit. Because Wilhelm is a Marxist Democrat, and cutting out the effective parts of essential city services is always, without fail what depraved Democrat city officials do first when cutting budgets.

From a piece at the Washington Examiner:

After making the decision to disband its plainclothes “anti-crime” unit, New York City has seen a 205% increase in shootings in comparison to the same time period last year.

According to the New York Post, 116 shootings took place in the city since the officers were reassigned on June 15 to July 2, a 205% increase from the same period in 2019 when there were 38 shootings.

New York City saw 205 shootings last month, making it the city’s “bloodiest June in 24 years.”

“I feel like we are giving the streets back to the criminals,” said the mother of one shooting victim, whose son was shot just days after the unit was disbanded. “Whatever the problem they have, address it. But don’t disband the unit. Many lives would have been saved. Not just my son.”

The use of plainclothes officers has come into question in recent weeks. After the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody in late May, the nation has been looking for answers on possible police reform measures.

“I think it’s time to move forward and change how we police in this city,” said New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.

[End]

Surreal.

Meanwhile, in Atlanta, BLM is now murdering children. – Despicable Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms, whose studied inaction has allowed the violent protests in her city to continue unabated as she prevents the police from doing their jobs, is outraged this morning after weeks-long refusal to put these riots down reached an inevitable result: The murder of an 8 year-old child.

From a story at Fox News:

Secoriya Williamson, the father of eight-year-old Secoriea Turner, told reporters that his daughter had been killed after at least two people in a crowd of armed people opened fire on a car she was riding in with her mother. Authorities said the mother had attempted to drive through illegally placed barricades in the area when the vehicle came under fire Saturday night.

Bottoms said there have been problems with protesters in the area putting up barriers to close off the street. She said she received a message that the barriers were back up less than an hour before she was informed that the eight-year-old girl had died.

“They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own,” Williamson said. “They killed my baby because she crossed a barrier and made a U-turn? You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody. Black Lives Matter? You killing your own. You killed an eight-year-old child. She ain’t did nothing to no one of y’all. She just wanted to get home to see her cousin. That’s all she wanted to do.”

[End]

“Bottoms said there have been problems with protesters in the area putting up barriers to close off the street.”

Oh. Well, Mayor, what does a responsible city leader do when people illegally block streets for weeks on end? Eventually, she sends in the police to take down the barriers and tear gas or water cannon the rioters until they disperse in order to maintain civil order.

Instead, Bottoms has negligently stood aside and allowed these violent protesters to act out like enraged children for a month now because she thought it was politically advantageous to do so. And now, a precious little 8 year-old child is dead because of Keisha Bottoms’ own negligence and depravity.

But make no mistake about it, BLM does not care about Secoriea Turner. Her death in their eyes is just a part of the struggle, a blip in that group’s increasingly violent campaign to bring Marxism to America. And if BLM were to ever succeed in its overarching goal, Keisha Bottoms would find out the hard way that they consider her to be nothing more than a useful idiot, which is a fitting description.

And the Democrat Party and their corrupt toadies in the national news media endorse every bit of it.

Here is what else BLM was doing over the weekend at Stone Mountain Georgia.:

Try to imagine the national media outrage if a group of white or Asian or Hispanic Americans engaged in that behavior. As it is, not a single national media outlet has uttered a peep about it.

 

Here’s the truth about our situation today:

The destruction of American culture, history and society is now the official platform of the Democrat Party.
This November, you are either voting to re-elect President Donald Trump, or you are voting for your own destruction. This really is not complicated.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: America has a Real Pandemic of Circus Clowns

The circus clownery will continue in Minneapolis until the complaining stops. – Members of the Minneapolis City Council voted to defund the city’s police department on Friday. What happened next will shock you. No, wait – if you’ve been paying attention, it really won’t shock you at all.

From a report at the Daily Caller:

Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day on private security for three city council members who support defunding the police after allegedly receiving threats, a local report published Friday showed.

Private security details cost Minneapolis taxpayers roughly $63,000 over the past three weeks, a spokesman for the city said, according to a Fox 9 report. Council members Andrea Jenkins, Phillipe Cunningham and Alondra Cano are outspoken supporters of efforts to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, the report stated.

Neither Cunningham, Jenkins nor Cano have responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Cunningham did respond to Fox 9’s request for comment, telling the outlet through a text message that, “I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats.” The security detail is temporary, he noted.

[End]

Classic Democrat dishonesty: 

  1. Vote to implement a policy that will undoubtedly harm taxpayers;
  2. Lie about getting death threats;
  3. Force the taxpayer to pay out the wazoo for your own personal private security.

These people are despicable. Here they are in all their glory:

Minneapolis City Council members get private security detail after ...

They are the faces of the city’s looming destruction.

Starbucks would like to interrupt your morning coffee by brainwashing you. – Starbucks announced yesterday that it is “pausing” all social media advertising so that it can make sure it is spreading the exact brainwashing messages the Democrat Party demands. In a note posted on its website, the company had this carefully-constructed lawyered-to-death inanity to say:

We believe in bringing communities together, both in person and online, and we stand against hate speech. We believe more must be done to create welcoming and inclusive online communities, and we believe both business leaders and policy makers need to come together to affect real change.

We will pause advertising on all social media platforms while we continue discussions internally, with our media partners and with civil rights organizations in the effort to stop the spread of hate speech.

[End]

So, be ready next time you choose to support this leftist corporation: You might have to have a discussion about your being a racist while you wait for your latte’.

Still think Antifa and BLM are just getting away with their destruction of our cities? – You might want to think again:

The wheel of American justice turns slowly, but it grinds exceedingly fine.

Corrupt News Media today: “Aerial footage shows massive crowds rallying to celebrate #Pride in Chicago.”

Corrupt News Media in two weeks: “Chicago officials shocked at massive outbreak of new COVID-19 cases among city’s gay community. Cause a complete mystery.”

*sigh*

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. – As the city’s murder rate quadruples as a direct result of his insane, anti-police leadership, New York City Mayor Warren Wilhelm spent the day Sunday handing out masks …. TO PEOPLE ALREADY WEARING MASKS!:

The man is just a giant, evil buffoon.

Meanwhile, this was happening:

Say goodbye to that billion dollar tourist industry, New Yorkers. And remember: You elected this guy, saw what an abject, evil moron he is for four longs years, and then you elected him again.

You are reaping what you have sown. Too bad.

Speaking of abject, bellowing buffoons… – For reasons that remain unclear, clownish sports commentator Dick Vitale put on his bermuda shorts and went out on the streets of Miami to shame Floridians for not wearing masks over the weekend.

As he was lecturing everyone else for not wear a mask, this braying jackass revealed he doesn’t even know how to wear his own:

Holy crap. You just can’t make this stuff up, never in a million years. The clowns will soon outnumber the rest of us. Maybe they already do.

That is all.

The Tide is Turning on the American Taliban

The tide is turning now, folks. You can feel it in your bones, and you can see it in the shift of focus by the corrupt national news media. The American Taliban, aka Antifa and BLM, is being pushed back, its energy fading, its efforts to topple monuments failing and its major monument to cultural Marxism soon to be dismantled.

That monument to cultural Marxism would be the so-called CHOP area in Seattle, where violent rioters seized control of six city blocks in the Capitol Hill area with the help of members of the city council and Mayor Jenny Durkin, who ordered her police to stand down as the department’s 3rd precinct building was taken. After shooting incidents over the weekend that left one dead and two lying near death in a local hospital, Durkin, who spent the previous three weeks celebrating and supporting the violent juvenile delinquents in the CHOP, announced on Monday that the city would begin to dismantle the atrocity today.

The energy behind the nationwide protests and riots staged and instigated by the American Taliban has also obviously faded, as an increasing number of the guilty parties are being arrested and charged by local and federal law enforcement. It turns out that the masked dopes dressed in black Antifa outfits love to create havoc when the local Democrat mayor assists them by having their police stand down while they do their looting and burning, but they quickly turn into pathetic cowards when they see their leaders and cohorts being arrested and placed at risk of serving long prison sentences.

Even better, the dimwit Talibanites in New York City are now turning on their own, last night staging a major protest outside Gracie Mansion, where Marxist New York Mayor Warren Wilhem, aka, Bill de Blasio resides:

You gotta love that.

But it gets even better. After weeks of tearing down various monuments in Democrat-run cities without any pushback from neutered police departments, a group of Antifa thugs made the mistake last night of trying to take down the famous statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park across the street from the White House.

These rioters may have had the tacit approval of DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, but they lacked the approval of the U.S. Park Police and other federal law enforcement officials who quickly arrived at the scene and put the action down:

The monument to Old Hickory still stands, and the rioters limped away from the scene after vandalizing St. John’s Church one more time, an action that has become passe’ and which few Americans even care about anymore since the Episcopal Bishop revealed herself to be an active part of the resistance after the church almost burned to the ground a few weeks ago.

Everywhere you look, the American Taliban is losing steam. They attempted to set up another CHOP area last Friday in Seattle South, which we Texans still refer to as Austin, but that failed as well when the Austin police refused to allow them to seize the department’s downtown precinct building.

Everything they try now is failing. Add that to the fact that ordinary Americans who initially knee-jerked to support BLM’s cause are increasingly becoming repulsed by their violent and excessive actions, along with the revelation that the group’s founders brag about being “trained Marxists.”

During his speech at the Tulsa rally on Saturday, President Trump remarked that he thinks we’re better off just sitting by and watching these Democrat mayors and governors fail. That has been his approach all along, as it has been obvious that the Democrats and their Taliban wing have been desperately trying to goad him into overreacting and ordering in the troops.

That approach of letting the Democrat state and local leaders fail on their own is now being rewarded with the Taliban’s movement now fading out with a whimper instead of its hoped-for violent confrontation with federal law enforcement.

As I pointed out last week, America is not falling apart, as much as the corrupt news media and Democrats would love you to think it is. Though it has been hyped by the media and its fake polls as somehow representing the majority sentiment all over the country, the agitators and rioters you have seen on your TV screens for the past month are really just a tiny sliver of our society.

What America has witnessed over the last month is what our country would look like under a Joe Biden presidency, and you can bet that a constantly-increasing number of voters are waking up to that reality as you read this.

Remain calm and live your lives. The good guys are winning.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: CHOP Shooting, BLM Marxists, Roosevelt Statue, and NYC/Chi Murder Race

All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men and women to sit silently by and do nothing. – Anyone who thought that the American Taliban’s – aka, Antifa/BlackLivesMatter – efforts to tear down monuments and erase U.S. history would be limited to heroes of the Confederacy was living in a fantasy world.

Over the past few weeks, they came for Christopher Columbus, and good men and women did nothing to stop them.

Then they came for Thomas Jefferson, and good men and women did nothing.

Next they came for George Washington, and good men and women did nothing.

Now, they have come for Teddy Roosevelt, and good men and women are nowhere to be found to defend him. The target over the weekend is the magnificent statue of the progressive Republican President who is responsible for tens of millions of acres of National Parks and National Monuments as well as the nation’s anti-trust laws, which has sat in front of New York’s Museum of Natural History since 1940.

Teddy Roosevelt Statue at Museum of Natural History to Be Removed

Activists have for years claimed that the images of the Native American and African American walking astride Roosevelt’s horse are somehow demeaning, although both are rendered as proud, noble and strong. Both the museum and the city have resisted removing the statue for many years due to public opposition to the move, but over the past few weeks, the impulse to engage in virtue signaling obviously just became too strong.

So, Roosevelt is gone, and in a week few will even remember this happened.

What will they go after next? This is entirely predictable: The major monuments in Washington, DC, the U.S. Constitution, your guns and your churches. If you doubt me, just sit back and do nothing and watch.

Oh, and in case you missed it, the founder of Black Lives Matter admits she is a “trained Marxist”:

Because of course she is. You will never see this reported on CNN or MSNBC.

Defund the police? Here’s what you get. – Speaking of New York City, Marxist Mayor Bill De Blasio’s policies of releasing hundreds of felons from Rikers Island and defunding his police department have led to a very predictable outcome: The Big Apple is starting to look a lot like Baltimore and Chicago.

As reported by the New York Post:

The New York City Police Department is investigating more than a dozen shootings that took place in 24 hours.

Authorities say at least 19 people have been injured during shootings Saturday across the city’s boroughs.

The violence comes as the city sees a spike in shootings following the New York City Police Department disbanding the plainclothes unit last Monday.

There were 28 shooting incidents with 38 victims from last Monday to Friday, compared to only 12 during the same week last year, according to the New York Post.

[End]

Actions have consequences. New Yorkers elected this evil buffoon not once, but twice, so they get what they deserve. But it is sad to see this once-great city descending back into the pits of hell from which Rudy Giuliani rescued it just 20 years ago.

The “good news” for New Yorkers is that they still have a ways to go to catch up with Chicago. – The bad news is that De Blasio will keep doubling down on evil policies until his city is #1.

Over the father’s day weekend, 101 Chicago residents were shot, and at least 14 have died at last count, although the bodies are still being counted, so that number could still rise.

From a report in the Chicago Sun-Times:

Chicago saw its highest number of shootings victims in a single weekend this year with 101 people shot across the city from Friday evening to Monday morning, 14 of them fatally. Five of those killed were minors.

The latest child fatality happened early Monday in Austin on the West Side.

Two boys, 15 and 16, were walking in an alley at 12:18 a.m. in the 4700 block of West Superior Street when someone fired at them, possibly from a gray sedan, according to Chicago police. The 15-year-old was shot in his leg, chest and abdomen. He was taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead. The other boy, 16, was hit in the ankle and taken to Stroger Hospital in fair condition.

A 13-year-old girl was killed and two other teens were wounded Saturday night in Austin on the West Side.

The girl was inside a home about 8:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of North LeClaire Avenue when the shots were fired, and she was struck in the neck, police said. She was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified her as Amaria J. Jones.

Two boys, 15 and 16, were sitting on a porch when one of them noticed a red laser pointing at him and heard gunfire, police said. The younger boy was struck in the back and the older boy was struck in the leg. They were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

A 3-year-old boy was fatally wounded about two hours earlier when someone opened fire at his father while they were driving in Austin.

The toddler, identified as Mekay James, was struck in the back about 6:25 p.m. when someone in a blue Honda pulled behind the black SUV the boy’s 27-year-old father was driving in the 600 block of North Central Avenue and fired several rounds, authorities said.

A police source said the father was believed to be the intended target of the shooting.

[End]

It’s a war zone, folks, and the city is saddled with an abject lunatic – Lori Lightfoot – in charge. America’s great cities – all run by Democrat political machines for decades – are dying.

The “Summer of Love” continues in Seattle. – Yet another shooting took place in the so-called CHOP zone in Seattle last night:

So, two nights, two shootings, one dead, two in critical condition in a local hospital. It’s like a three square-block version of De Blasio’s pit of hell.

But still, the mayor and governor do nothing.

Democrats: Can’t live with them, would love to live without them.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Panic Porn is Losing Traction Fast

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The stock markets had a bleak opening Monday morning following a weekend during which the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies loaded the airwaves with Wuhan Virus panic porn. The Dow opened down by more than 600 points, with the NASDAQ and S&P 500 also down from Friday’s highs. For awhile it seemed as if the panic porn parade at CNN and MSNBC would be able to cancel out all of the positive inertia that had underpinned the markets for the previous month.

But then a funny thing happened: About an hour into the session the markets slowly began to recover. Later in the day, after the Federal Reserve Board announced it would begin making purchases of corporate bonds, it recovered fully, with the Dow finishing the day in the green by 157 points. Today promises to be even better, as futures point to a positive opening which could see the NASDAQ achieve another new all-time record high.

The Democrats and their media toadies are going to need a new false narrative. The panic porn is failing.

Speaking of failed panic porn… – Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is looking for a bigger venue. That’s because more than 1 million Americans have now requested tickets to attend this Saturday’s Trump Campaign kickoff rally in Tulsa.

With Trump fans already camping out at the 19,000 seat BOK arena in downtown Tulsa, Stitt can see that that facility is inadequate to satisfy demand for the event. “We’re excited we’re being recognized as one of the first states to safely and measurably reopen,” Stitt told reporters Monday. “I’m looking for a potential other venue that maybe we could move it outside. It’s still kind of in the works.”

The corrupt news media, doing the bidding of its Democrat Party masters, continued to ramp up the pressure on the Trump Campaign to cancel the event based on the false narrative of a “second wave” of the viral gift from China supposedly taking place. Even Fox News’s Martha MacCallum got in on the action last night during an interview with Lara Trump, but Ms. Trump was having none of it.

“Everybody has a choice. Nobody is being forced to sign up to come to this rally,” Lara Trump told host Martha MacCallum. “This is a record-setting response that we have gotten to this and I think it speaks to the fact people are ready to get back to life.

“You contrast, Martha, the way the media and the experts have talked about this Trump rally — this one Trump rally where it’s around 20,000 people that can be in attendance in this arena — with the way that they discussed the protests where we had thousands of people all across this country,” she added.

[End]

Interestingly, one of the arguments the Axis of Disinformation has made against the rally is that it would put so many people together in an indoor arena. Moving the event to a larger, outdoor facility – to, say, the 30,000 seat H.A. Chapman Stadium, where Tulsa University football games are played – removes that argument from the playing field, so to speak.

The Panic Porn campaign is failing. There are a lot of different ways to skin this cat. This event is going to happen.

It’s failing in New York City, too. – Yesterday evening we told you about the despicable action by New York City’s antisemitic Mayor, Bill de Blasio, of having his police department put padlocks and welds on the gates of the main park in the middle of Brooklyn’s largest Jewish neighborhood. It’s the latest move in an increasingly aggressive and highly disturbing campaign the Mayor has mounted targeting the city’s Jewish community, justified, of course, by all the disinformation spread about the Wuhan Virus.

That happened yesterday morning. Yesterday evening, leaders of that Jewish community took matters into their own hands:

This is America, folks, these are Americans, and that is one of the most American things you will ever witness. There is no science, no data and most importantly, no real law supporting the notion that their children – who are almost impregnable to this virus – should not be able to play at the local park. Just the fascist edicts of an utterly corrupt nitwit drunk on power in the Mayor’s office.

These Americans are not buying into all the panic porn being spoon-fed to them every night on their television screens, and neither should you.

It’s time for America to become a free country again.

That is all.

De Blasio’s New York Looks Increasingly Like 1930s Berlin

The Evening Campaign Update

It’s 1937 in Berlin… – No, wait, it’s 2020 in New York City, and Mayor Warren Wilhelm – who changed his name to Bill de Blasio years ago for some odd reason – is doing this at the largest park in Brooklyn’s main Jewish neighborhood:

This move comes one day after Mayor Wilhelm, er, “de Blasio” remained studiously mute and did nothing to intervene while this happened at the Brooklyn Museum:

Image

That was the 90% white crowd that gathered for the Trans Black Lives Matter rally, or something like that. No social distancing, few masks, no place to wash their hands every 10-15 minutes to try to control the spread of the Wuhan Virus or just general cooties, and de Blasio said and did nothing.

At this point, it really is time to ask a difficult question: Why does Bill de Blasio hate Jews? Since the very beginning of this insane response to the Wuhan Virus, the Mayor has been creepily focused on ensuring his police department cracks down particularly hard in the various Jewish neighborhoods in the Five Burroughs. He has repeatedly gone out of his way to threaten the city’s Jewish population and make sure his cops focus special attention on them, their children and their businesses.

This welding of the park gates is just the latest in a series of actions that de Blasio’s enforcers have taken to ensure Jewish children stay out of their neighborhood parks. Just last weekend, while thousands of New Yorkers frolicked unmolested in Central and Bryant Parks, de Blasio’s storm troopers made sure they cleared out another Jewish neighborhood park where half a dozen kids were using the playground equipment while their parents watched.

It’s a truly disturbing trend, and you have to wonder why the Jewish members of New York’s congressional delegation, including Chuck Schumer, remain so silent in the face of de Blasio’s obvious bias. We have seen this kind of growing discrimination against Jewish populations many times in the past, and they never end well.

Of course, Warren Wilhelm is far from the only raging leftist hypocrite in America today. – The country is literally brimming over with them. Over at NBC News, the leftist activists who run the place ran the two stories below within an hour of one another:

You can’t make this stuff up – the parables of abject hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness just write themselves.

In Philadelphia, the leftist Democrat Mayor and District Attorney took to twitter to attack a group of about 100 Italian Americans who surrounded a statue of Christopher Columbus in Marconi Park to protect it from being torn down by Antifa/Black Lives Matter rioters. Neither has had a word of criticism for the rioters, looters and building burners over the past three weeks.

Lesson: In Philly, as in all the other Democrat-run cities around the country, destruction of personal and public property is fine with the city leaders; defending it will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Man, no one could’ve seen this one coming. – Back in New York City, meanwhile, the local NBC affiliate reports that 250 of the Rikers Island felons released by Governor Andrew Cuomo since March have now been re-arrested a total of 450 times for the commission of new crimes. Boy, that outcome sure was hard to foresee, huh? Oh, and to make it all better, local radical Democrat judges just keep letting the re-arrested felons back out on the streets over and over again to commit new crimes.

From the piece at NBC4 New York:

Hundreds of prisoners released early from Rikers due to COVID concerns are being enabled to re-offend again and again without consequences, law enforcement leaders say.

“We’re continuing to see people get arrested over and over and let right back out. And it really defies common sense,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in an interview with NBC New York.

Of approximately 2,500 defendants sprung from Rikers early because of COVID safety planning, at least 250 have been arrested again since, according to Michael LiPetri, chief of Crime Control Strategies for the NYPD.

Chief LiPetri tells NBC New York the NYPD did not object to releasing older defendants, nor those with underlying medical conditions. But he says the consequences of the larger-scale release of prisoners are now showing up in the arrest data, with those 250 re-offenders being arrested 450 times so far during the pandemic.

[End]

And this isn’t just limited to Blue state cities like New York. We see the very same revolving door thanks to leftist judges and district attorneys bought and paid for by Soros-funded super PACS taking place in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin in Texas as well. This is where Democrats want to take the entire country, folks, so if you live in a big city run by Democrats and have the means to do so, the time to get the hell out of there is now, before their radical insanity drives your property value down to near-zero.

Oh, hey, it’s not the CHAZ anymore. – It’s now the “CHOP.” Presumably, someone informed the people who created the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone that, when you have to literally beg outsiders to bring you free food because you aren’t capable of securing it for yourself, that means you aren’t exactly “autonomous.” So, now, the spoiled nitwits are calling their 6 square blocks of excrement and dumpster fires the Capitol Hill Occupied – or maybe it’s Organized, no one seems to know for sure – Protest, or “CHOP.”

See? I’m not just making this stuff up. Who could?

Democrats are Eating Their Own, and it is Glorious

The Democrats are eating their own, and it is glorious. – Can we start this off by saying that there is no more anti-police mayor in the United States of America than the Marxist Bill de Blasio? I mean, c’mon, seriously, the NYPD hates this guy and he hates them right back every chance he gets.

Police officers in New York City hate de Blasio so fiercely that they have, on multiple occasions, literally stood up in unison and turned their backs to him as he was speaking. Put simply, Bill de Blasio is not a mayor who anyone in their right mind would accuse of being overly-supportive of the NYPD.

But we’re not talking about anyone in their right mind here; no, we’re talking about de Blasio’s Senior Advisor, a raging leftist lunatic Democrat named Allison Hirsch (pictured below for your enjoyment).

Alison Hirsh

The comely Ms. Hirsh, who is no doubt the absolute life of every Hillary Clinton- themed party in the Five Burroughs, actually stepped down from her position under the gigantic boob de Blasio. Her reason? Because  – you can’t make this stuff up, folks – she believes de Blasio was just too darn supportive of the city police over the past two weeks, while he literally prevented them from doing anything effective to quell the riots that turned several neighborhoods into hollowed-out shells.

In a statement, de Blasio said Hirsh has been “an invaluable adviser during one of the toughest times our city has ever faced.” No word on what he mumbled under his breath as he loped away from the podium.

It’s a “sh*t show” in Chi-Town. – You have got to listen to this. It’s a recording of a call held between Chicago Mayor Lori Lightweight, er, Lightfoot and her city aldermen going back and forth about how to respond to the first night of rioting in the wake of George Floyd’s murder.

This portion of the recording features a confrontation between the dimwitted Mayor and another Democrat, Alderman Raymond Lopez. It. Is. Glorious.

As reported at The Federalist, here is part of the exchange:

“When downtown is in lockdown, our neighborhoods are next, and our failure to fully get ready for what’s going on in the neighborhoods, we’re seeing this destruction, and we’re thinking that it’s going to somehow end tonight. We have seen where, in other cities, this has gone on for days; and we need to come up with a better plan for days, at least for the next five days, to try to stabilize our communities,” Alderman Raymond Lopez told Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “Once they’re done looting and rioting and whatever’s going to happen tonight, God help us, what happens when they start going after residents? Going into neighborhoods?”

When Lightfoot tried to blow the alderman off with, “next question,” Lopez stopped her and demanded an answer.

“You commented on everybody, I want an answer,” Lopez said on the call with 50 alderman in a recording obtained by WTTW News. “That’s not something you ignore.”

“I think you’re 100 percent full of s**t,” Lightfoot responded.

“Well f*** you then,” Lopez said back. “Who are you to tell me I’m full of s**t?”

Lightfoot said Lopez’s rant was “one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard.”

“Mayor, you need to check your f*****g” attitude,” Lopez charged followed by the rest of the callers trying to step in and diffuse the situation over the phone.

Friday News Roundup: Musk Shames Bezos, Whitmer Shames Herself and de Blasio is Just a Giant Shame

Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months.

Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”:

Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else. Basically, Berenson was being blocked because his book does not conform to the propaganda being pushed by China and the WHO.

Berenson complained about it on Twitter, where Musk has obviously been following him. Musk responded by tweeting, “This is insane, @JeffBezos,” and “Time to break up @Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”

Within a few hours, Amazon suddenly restored Berenson’s book to its platform, and a spokesman lamely explained that it had been block due to an “error.” Yeah, sure.

Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer again violates her own edicts. – Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator and barber-hater who currently serves as Governor in Michigan, has apparently decided that all of her stay-at-home and social distancing nonsense is completely optional.

On Thursday, she made that clear by doing this:

So, if you’re a protester or a looter or a rioter in Michigan, hey, no worries about all that social distancing and staying-at-home stuff! Frau Gretchen was just kidding.

He’s gone full AOC. Not a good look, Joe. – Joe Biden told a group of climate alarmists yesterday that he’s going all-in on the Green New Deal as a means of not just saving the earth, but also to solve all the problems of racial injustice.

No, I’m not kidding. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

In a virtual fundraiser on Thursday afternoon hosted by Climate Leaders for Biden, the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate said addressing climate change is urgent “not just to stop the earth from warming, but to address the environmental injustices that have left so many low-income people and people of color more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to asthma and other respiratory problems, the effects of pollution,” according to a pool report.

Biden also touched on mass unemployment due to coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, saying that “creating millions, over 10 million good-paying jobs” while investing in clean energy is “an enormous opportunity to rebuild the backbone of this country.”

Addressing “a stimulus to create clean energy jobs that will spur the economic recovery,” Biden said that, “I think that we’re on our way, and we can be on our way to a significant economic recovery, not just to build back but to build back better. Building back what we had before this crisis is not enough.”

“Invest in jobs and the technology of the future,” Biden said. “The clean energy infrastructure is at the very top of the list.”

[End]

This is all Church of Climate Change dogma straight out of the Green New Deal, a collection of mindless shibboleths that have no basis in reality. But hey, Biden himself is out of touch with reality most days, so what else would we expect from him?

He’s under-shooting here. – Biden created a media kerfuffle for himself on Thursday at another event at which he was speaking to minority supporters. From a New York Times Report:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.”

Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not.

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Mr. Biden said during the discussion, which was moderated by the actor Don Cheadle.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” the former vice president said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

[End]

Naturally, Biden’s critics jumped on the “10 to 15 percent” remark as if it is some sort of “basket of deplorables” moment, but that’s not going to fly. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who doesn’t believe that at least 15% of the population of this or any other country are “just not very good people.” If anything, Biden is underestimating here.

If you’re looking for ways to take Biden’s campaign out, look elsewhere because this cat don’t flush.

Hey, 2/3rds of them voted for the guy. – I found this incident to be highly ironic:

From the Breitbart piece:

The crowd booed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) during his appearance at Thursdays’s vigil for George Floyd, with some hurling expletives, demanding the Democrat politician to “get the f*ck out of here!”

While Rev. Kevin McCall urged the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, the mayor did not receive an overwhelmingly warm welcome, as the audience inundated his appearance with boos and shouts of “get the fuck out of here,” “f*ck the mayor’s curfew,” and “shut the f*ck up.” Some reportedly turned their backs to the mayor:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s speech at the memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn was met with boos and jeers, despite requests from organizers for the crowd not to do so.

Let’s be honest here: New Yorkers get what they deserve in a mayor. In the 2013 election, they elected this giant Marxist boob over his Republican opponent by a margin of 73% to 24%. When he ran for re-election in 2017, after four years of abject failure and rampant nit-wittery, these same New York City voters gave him another four-year term by a margin of 67% to 28%.

According to NYC law, de Blasio is now term-limited out, but the reality is that if he could run for a third term, the very same people who tried to boo him off the stage on Thursday would overwhelmingly re-elect him again for the simple fact that he would have a “D” next to his name.

There is a word for the process of doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result. That word is “insanity,” and it perfectly describes the voter of New York City and other major cities that have been controlled by Democrat machine politics for many decades.

That is all.

The Evening Wrap: Rosenstein Tosses McCabe Under the Bus, and Other WINNING News

So many items of WINNING news today it’s hard to know where to start.

How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it’s a big negative number, it’s still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But – and it’s a big BUT – the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more than the actual number.

What this means is pretty clear:

– Many workers who had lost jobs over the last 10 weeks and filed initial claims for unemployment quickly found new jobs;

– Businesses are reopening faster than the “experts” have anticipated despite the efforts by an array of Democrat governors to prevent that from happening in states like Michigan, New York, California, Oregon, New Jersey and Nevada;

– The reduction in economic growth has obviously not been as deep and severe as most have estimated.

That’s why we have this next bit of WINNING news: The Dow Jones Industrial Average rocketed up above 26,000 today, just 5 trading days after it topped 25,000 last Wednesday, and just 9 weeks after it bottomed out at 18,591. That is a rise of ~40% in a little over 2 months.

At the same time, the NASDAQ hit 9,681 today, and is now within just 70 points of regaining every bit of the losses it suffered in March. Given that the stock markets tend to reflect where investors believe the economy will be 3 to 6 months from now, that represents a stunning vote of confidence in the U.S. economy.

Obviously, the investor class in our country has just as little faith in the economic “expert” class as you and I do.

Oh, hey, then there’s this: You may be wondering why all the rioting across the country suddenly got dialed back last night. President Trump is saying that it’s because some mayors – like Eric Garcetti in Los Angeles – called in the National Guard, and that likely has a lot of merit. But other depraved Democrats like Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot in Chicago did not do that, yet saw a dramatic decrease in violence and mayhem in their cities, too.

Here’s why I believe that happened: The Democrats – and thus, Antifa and Black Lives Matter – got hold of bad polling data, which meant all the bad out-of-state actors were ordered to go home. Remember, every decision the Democrats make is based on polling data.

The bad data on the riots came to them in the form of a new poll from the very liberal Morning Consult polling group, which finds that Americans favor using the National Guard and the U.S. military to put down these riots by a frankly amazing 58%-30% margin. The move is even favored by Democrat voters by a 48-43 margin.

In another bit of bad polling data (for Democrats), the Rasmussen survey shows that a large plurality of Americans consider Antifa to be a terrorist organization. 49% of respondents answered yes, while just 30% said no.

If you don’t think that data caused a ton of Democrat heads to explode, then you don’t understand how Democrats think and operate.

Uhhhh, who to believe – Rod Rosenstein? Or Andrew McCabe? – It’s a very tough choice, but that is what America faces today following an interesting Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in which the oily, rodent-like former Acting Attorney General offered his sniffing and slurping testimony. In this instance, I would tend to believe Rosenstein, if only for the fact that being slightly more believable than the pathological liar McCabe is such a low damn bar.

As we pointed out yesterday, Rosenstein has much to answer for related to his gross misconduct in office during the active coup d’etat effort which he personally facilitated from May 2017 through March 2019. Sadly, the stilted format of these hearings and uselessness of so many of the GOP senators meant that he only had to answer for a few of those things today.

The main focus of the few Republicans who really went after Rosenstein today – Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Chuck Grassley – was why Rosenstein signed off on the 4th fraudulent FISA warrant and appointed Robert Mueller shortly after he had assumed the office of Deputy Attorney General. Rosenstein’s wormy answer basically amounted to, “hey, I was just going on the information provided to me by Andy McCabe and his evil team, which included Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”

Remember, at a press conference two years ago, Rosenstein went on and on about the fact that “In order to get a FISA warrant, you need an affidavit signed by a career law enforcement officer who swears the information is true… And if it is wrong, that person is going to face consequences.”

Remember that? I do, and today Rosenstein outright admitted his signing off on that FISA warrant based solely on the word of a pathological liar and his demonic staff was, well, wrong. But of course, he then added that, hey, he was just the new guy at DOJ and couldn’t be expected to try to verify any of the BS he was being fed by McCabe and Strzok and Page.

Naturally, McCabe was watching the proceedings at home – or maybe at CNN headquarters, where he remains employed as a richly-paid on-screen liar, er, “contributor” – and he issued a statement defending himself as the hearing was progressing, as reported by JustTheNews.com:

In a statement apparently authored shortly after Rosenstein made that assertion, McCabe said that Rosenstein’s “claims to have been misled by me or anyone from the F.B.I.” were “completely false.”

“I briefed Mr. Rosenstein on Jim Comey’s memos describing his interactions with the president days after Mr. Rosenstein wrote the memo firing Jim Comey,” McCabe said, in a statement read by committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.

Rosenstein’s remarks “loo[k] to be another sad attempt by the president and his men to rewrite the history of their actions in 2017,” McCabe said. “They have found in Mr. Rosenstein, then and now, a willing accessory in that effort.”

[End]

Hilariously, Lindsey Graham closed the hearing out by reading McCabe’s statement and allowing Rosenstein to give one more worm-like answer:

“I did not say that Mr. McCabe misled me,” he said. “Those were not my words. I think he is responding to somebody’s question.”

“What I said was, he did not reveal the Comey memos to me for a week. And that is true. He revealed them to me only a couple of hours before they showed up in the New York Times, and he did not reveal to me that he was having internal deliberations with his team about whether to target high-profile people for investigation.”

[End]

Here’s reality: Rosenstein admitted under oath today that he had zero basis for signing that FISA warrant; zero basis for believing anyone in the Trump Campaign or Transition team was colluding with the Russians; and thus, zero basis for appointing a special counsel. He admitted that he basically didn’t know nuthin’ about nuthin’ and just allowed himself to be strung along by the coup cabal made up of Obama holdovers at the DOJ and FBI.

Absolutely sickening.

Tomorrow, expect the GOP majority to vote unanimously to issue subpoenas to more than 50 Obama loyalists who tried to fix the 2016 election and then overthrow a duly-elected POTUS.

This is actually gonna be fun to watch.

I leave you with this absolutely epic clip of Senator Ted Cruz destroying Rosenstein, Barack Obama, Susan Rice and Joe Biden at today’s hearing:

That is all.
