Tuesday News Roundup: Minneapolis Acts to Re-Fund its De-Funded Police and De Blasio Pounds Cuomo

Leftist Genius Update: Re-funding the de-funding of the police. – How bad an idea is the BLM/Antifa/Democrat mantra to “defund the police?” It’s such a bad idea that even the cretins who infest the city council in Minneapolis are regretting it now. Yes, folks: The nitwits who voted to defund that city’s police department last July are now going to spend millions of dollars to hire a bunch of police officers back after violent crime rates very predictably skyrocketed in the wake of their idiotic policy choice:

From a story at the DailyMail:

Minneapolis is planning to spend $6.4million to hire dozens of police officers, at a time when some City Council members and activist groups have been advocating to replace the police department following the death of George Floyd.

The City Council voted unanimously Friday to approve the additional funding that police requested.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, there are only 638 officers available to work, which is roughly 200 fewer than usual. 

An unprecedented number of officers quit or went on extended medical leave after Floyd’s death and the unrest that followed, which included the burning of a police precinct.

With new recruit classes, the city anticipates it will have 674 officers available at the end of the year, with another 28 in the hiring process, according to the Star Tribune.

[End]

So, what we have here is mindless leftist policy coming full circle to its logical conclusion, an end result that anyone with a fully functioning brain stem could easily have seen coming. And guess what? This $6.4 million isn’t nearly enough to stem the leftist-caused crime surge, since, as you can see from the parts of the excerpt I bolded, the city will still be 174 officers short of its pre-George Floyd levels at the end of this year.

If you live in Minneapolis but have the wherewithal to get the hell out of there, my only question to you is, why haven’t you already left?

Today’s Geraldo Rivera Really is a Moron Update. – Here’s Geraldo Rivera casually defending the bullying, sexual harassing behavior of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo because, Rivera says, he’s a single guy in his ’60s living in Albany:

It’s like Bill Murray’s Peter Vinkman defending the giant Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man. You just cannot make this stuff up, folks. You really can’t.

Speaking of bullying, sexual harasser, elderly killer Andrew Cuomo… – New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio is also a moron – that appears to be a given for holders of high office in the city, county and state of New York. De Blasio is in fact arguably the very worst mayor in America, although every time I say that, creepy old Lori Lightfoot raises her hand and says “hold my beer.”

This mayor does not play - Chicago Sun-Times

But I digress.

Moron or not, the buffoonish De Blasio does appear to have a clear-eyed view of Gov. Cuomo, and nothing but time on his hands to go on television and talk about it, which he has done repeatedly over the past several weeks. Because, you know, everything’s just great in NY  City these days so he has nothing better to do.

Hooboy.

Yesterday, el Grande Payaso [clown] went on television yet again and threw the Governor under the bus in a huge way:

Here’s an excerpt from the story at Red State:

As I reported last Thursday in an article titled De Blasio Tries to Throw Cuomo Even Farther Under the Bus Than Last Time: ‘Really Disturbing’, after news broke on Cuomo’s first accuser, Lindsey Boylan, who claimed the governor kissed her “on the lips” without warning, following a meeting in his Manhattan office in 2018 and, on an October 2017 flight aboard the official state jet, said to her: “Let’s play strip poker”, Comrade Big Bird de Blasio called Boylan’s accusations “really disturbing.”

“Look, these allegations are really disturbing, let’s be clear about that. When a woman comes forward with this kind of very specific allegation, we have to take it seriously. This kind of behavior, if true, is unacceptable.”

De Blasio went on, of course, doing a damn fine job of throwing Cuomo under the bus as far as he could. At the time, that is. Now, after reading Cuomo’s bizarre Sunday press release, de Blasio is back — and this time he means business. We’re talking way under the bus business. As reported by Fox News, de Blasio went off on Cuomo’s statement during a Monday interview with New York City radio station Hot 97, calling the statement “creepy.”

“It sickened me, it sickened me. The thought of a powerful man trying to take advantage of his power, intimidate a young woman and just the sense that he was treating her like — again these are allegations and we need a full investigation — but if that was what truly happened, it was like he was treating her like she was his property. Just disgusting, creepy.”

“Sexual harassment is not funny,” de Blasio continued. “Who the hell tries to explain that by saying,’I was just joking around’?”

Perhaps most devasting to Cuomo, the mayor then personally incriminated him. “I’ve seen him be abusive in a way that would not be accepted by anyone in leadership,” he said.

Also on Sunday, according to Fox, de Blasio called on the New York state legislature to revoke Cuomo’s emergency powers amid the scandals.

[End]

El Grande Payaso and Cuomo have always had what has been at best a tense relationship, but man, this is out of control. These repeated attacks against and complaints about Cuomo lodged by De Blasio and a succession of fellow Democrats are the only reason why the Democrat activists at the New York Times and other media outlets have begun to pay even a little attention to Cuomo’s abusive behavior.

So by all means, Mayor, keep it up.

All the rest of us are embarrassed that John Brennan’s a white male, too. – In a paid appearance on MSNBC on Monday, the execrable John Brennan said he’s embarrassed to be a white male:

On behalf of white males everywhere, we are all embarrassed to have our skin color associated with such a despicable, un-American scumbag, too.

News You Will Not See on CNN Update. – Four people, including a local Justice of the Peace, were arrested in Hondo, Texas yesterday on charges of rampant voter fraud. To no one’s surprise, they are all Democrats.

Also to no one’s surprise, no one in the national news media is covering the story. And also to no one’s surprise, the fraud scheme focused on … wait for it … mail-in ballots.

Here’s an excerpt from the story at Fox29 in San Antonio:

An area Justice of the Peace has been arrested and accused of election fraud, along with three other people.

Medina County Justice of the Peace Tomas Ramirez was arrested Feb. 11 after a Bandera Grand Jury indicted him and three others two days prior.

Ramirez is facing one count of organized election fraud, one count of assisting voter voting ballot by mail and 17 counts of unlawful possession of a ballot or ballot envelope.

Leonor Rivas Garza, Eva Ann Martinez and Mary Balderrama were also arrested.

Garza is facing one charge of organized election fraud, two counts of illegal voting, eight counts of unlawful possession of a ballot or ballot envelope, two counts of election fraud and four counts of fraudulent use of an absentee ballot by mail.

Martinez is facing one count of organized election fraud, nine counts of illegal voting, 28 counts of unlawful possession of ballot or ballot envelope, three counts of purportedly acting as an agent, five counts of tampering with government record, 14 counts of election fraud and four counts of fraudulent mail ballot application.

Meanwhile, Balderrama is facing one count of organized election fraud, nine counts of illegal voting, two counts of unlawful possession of ballot or ballot envelope, one count of mail ballot application, two counts of unlawfully assisting voter voting by mail, two counts of tampering with government record, eight counts of election fraud.

The Bandera County Sheriff’s Office tells us all charges stem from an Attorney General investigation. We reached out to the AG’s office, but have not yet heard back.

[End]

Voter fraud operations by Democrats focused on absentee/mail-in ballots have been a way of life in South Texas for many, many decades. It was such a voter fraud operation that produced the infamous “Box 13” that ended up putting Lyndon Johnson in the U.S. Senate in 1948, in fact. Anyone who grew up in that region as I did has likely seen such operations in action.

Last year, the whole country got a big ol’ taste of what the results of such schemes look like on a national basis, and it isn’t pretty.

Good for Texas law enforcement officials to try to clean it up. Now, if the rest of the country would do the same…

That is all.

The Media is Brainwashing You to Accept a Stolen Election

Axios took the lead yesterday in the ongoing campaign to brainwash the U.S. public into accepting a stolen election this November. This coordinated campaign between the communist Democrat Party and the corrupt news media has been ongoing for several months now, and it becomes increasingly transparent over time.

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

Here’s an excerpt from the Axios story:

A top Democratic data and analytics firm told “Axios on HBO” it’s highly likely that President Trump will appear to have won — potentially in a landslide — on election night, even if he ultimately loses when all the votes are counted.

Why this matters: Way more Democrats will vote by mail than Republicans, due to fears of the coronavirus, and it will take days if not weeks to tally these. This means Trump, thanks to Republicans doing almost all of their voting in person, could hold big electoral college and popular vote leads on election night.

  • Imagine America, with its polarization and misinformation, if the vote tally swings wildly toward Joe Biden and Trump loses days later as the mail ballots are counted.
  • That is what this group, Hawkfish, which is funded by Michael Bloomberg and also does work for the Democratic National Committee and pro-Biden Super PACs, is warning is a very real, if not foreordained, outcome.

What they’re saying: Hawkfish CEO Josh Mendelsohn calls the scenario a “red mirage.”

  • “We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump,” he said.
  • “When every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day, which will be some day after Election Day, it will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage,” Mendelsohn said. “It looked like Donald Trump was in the lead and he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted.”

[End]

So, here we see Axios, via this Democrat front group, attempting to normalize the literal destruction of the American election process as we have always known it. The destruction of America’s legitimate election process has long been a goal of the Democrat Party, and it obviously believes this is the year it will be able to consolidate the plan, using fear over the China virus as the catalyst.

The key to the Democrat/media plan is the destruction of the expectation of having the votes counted on Election Day, as has always been the tradition in the United States, or at least had been the tradition until 2000, when the Democrat effort to steal the presidency in Florida resulted in two months of uncertainty over the outcome.

It is a fact that no Democrat presidential candidate has conceded an election on Election Day since 1988. Think about that: that is 8 election cycles ago. If that is not an aggressive effort to de-legitimize the democratic process, what is?

Now, there is no legitimate reason why every mail-in ballot should not be in and counted within 3 days of Election Day, yet we see Democrat governors all over the country arbitrarily extending the envisioned time frame to as much as a full month. Why should that be needed? If the ballot is properly postmarked by Election Day, shouldn’t the U.S. postal service be able to deliver it within just 2 days? If not, why not? It’s not like they have anything else to deal with other than junk mail these days.

Obviously, the effort to extend the vote-counting period for as long as possible is so that Democrat officials in places like Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida, in Detroit, in Philadelphia, in Columbus, Ohio and other key Democrat-controlled counties and cities in swing states have as much time as possible to keep “finding” additional boxes of ballots until they’re able to get their addled candidate over the finish line.

Try to imagine the level of unrest that will exist in this country as these Democrat efforts to steal the election are taking place. If you want to create conditions for a real, shooting civil war in America – as the Democrats have obviously been working towards this summer – it is hard to imagine a more perfect scenario than such a blatant attempt to steal the presidency.

But make no mistake about it: This is the goal of the Democrat party. They’re not really even trying to hide it anymore.

That is all.

New Jersey Voter Fraud Incident Reveals Democrat Plan for November

But…but…but…we’ve been assured by Nancy Pelosi and Jake Tapper that voter fraud with mail-in ballots is a myth. – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

Why yes, yes they would.

About 1/5th of all ballots cast in a Paterson, New Jersey special election for city council have been thrown out by a judge as being fraudulent. Mail-in ballots were stolen from mailboxes by Democrat political operatives, filled out with forged signatures and mailed in as part of a scheme led by four men, Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, Councilman Shahin Khalique, and Abu Razyen.

This kind of voter fraud is a virtually 100% Democrat phenomenon, perpetrated all across the country, mainly in low-income and heavily-minority communities. From a piece at The Federalist:

Khalique and Mendez both won their races by incredibly close margins. Mendez ousted incumbent William McKoy with a mere 245-vote lead. Khalique’s race was decided by a difference of only eight votes, though a recount placed him exactly equal with his challenger.

Jackson, Mendez, and Khalique have all been charged with the following: fraud in casting mail-in vote in the third degree, unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree, tampering with public records in the third degree, and falsifying or tampering with records in the fourth degree. Mendez also faces charges of second-degree election fraud and third-degree false registration or transfer. Rayzen is charged with fraud in casting mail-in vote and unauthorized possession of ballots, both in the third degree.

The frustration with fraud is leading some to call for the total invalidation of the election. A local NAACP leader, Rev. Kenneth Clayton, argues the city should have an entirely new election due to the rampant alleged fraud.

“These kinds of acts make people not want to vote anymore. They feel disenfranchised, disconnected that their votes don’t count, and that is not fair to people,” Clayton said. He is filing a formal complaint to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who ordered the election to be exclusively mail-in.

Benjie Wimberly, deputy speaker of the New Jersey Assembly, likewise criticized the governor for the policy. He too fears voter disenfranchisement, and believes the state should do more to allow in-person voting to prevent these kinds of issues.

[End]

Note that the people who are doing the complaining about how easy it is to commit rampant fraud in a mail-in election are also all Democrats, who understand what the deal is here.

This kind of voter fraud has long in fact been one of the most common kinds practiced by Democrats. It has been in practice for decades involving absentee ballots, focused in areas where Democrat officials control local governments. If you control the local government, you have access to the list of local citizens who request absentee ballots. From that point, it is a simple thing to find out what day the ballots are being delivered and have operatives follow mail trucks through the relevant neighborhoods and remove the ballots from mailboxes. I have actually watched such operations in action in South Texas.

But doing this with absentee ballots is admittedly more difficult, precisely because those ballots must be requested by the voter in advance, as President Donald Trump notes here:

Mail-in ballots do not have that extra layer of security – Democrat operatives could just follow mail trucks around on the right day and loot every mailbox in neighborhoods where residents can’t afford security cameras. In a 100% mail-in election like Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing this year, millions of Americans would end up being completely disenfranchised.

Over the past 20 years, Democrat governors and party-controlled legislatures in a growing number of states have ordered that all voting be conducted by mail. If you don’t think fraud just like this is widespread in elections in those states, you are hopelessly naive.

We have to understand that Democrats literally believe they are entitled to power because they are better people than you are. Armed with that conceit, they absolutely believe that any means necessary to obtain and maintain political power are absolutely justified.

Everyone needs to communicate with their U.S. senators to ensure they kill any proposal from the House – where Pelosi rules with a decrepit fist – that would mandate a national mail-in election. There is no question at all the Democrat Party plans to use COVID-19 as a justification to steal this election. The future of the country is really at stake.

That is all.
