So, recently two separate and far-distanced Blacks were put down by two equally separate and far-distanced in two utterly unrelated instances that had nothing in common with each other. And, of course, the Blacks have taken to the streets to “protest” – with, of course, all that normally goes along with their sort’s version of “peaceful assembly.” And, just to make matters triter and more over-played, the usual non-White, Democrat politicians have chosen to once again fan the flame of Black Violence and Rebellion and attack the very idea of law enforcement within America’s borders.
Honestly, “Same ol’ same ol’.” Some number of Black criminals were killed by police and the Blacks riot while their politicians decry America’s “racism” and call for the abolition of law enforcement in America. Frankly, Black rioting, looting, burning, raping, and murdering is essentially just “dog bites man;” it’s not news, not anymore; not after all this time with constantly doing it.
No, this is boring. This is the New Normal, the status quo, the purposeless unrest of our times. And, it will stay that way until We, the People decide to put an end to it once and for all.
Like every Thanksgiving – really, every single day – we Americans – and the Democrats and Likely Democrat demographics living within our nation’s borders – have a great deal to be thankful for. This is 2020 however, and that means that it’s a far cry from perfect or lacking in reasons for rancor.
One has to wonder just how many families in Democrat-controlled regions will have to police called on them and face criminal charges for having an extended family dinner this Holiday. One also has to at the same time wonder how many innocents will be put at risk or actually harmed through Democrat-sponsored actions to #DefundThePolice.
So, be thankful for what you have; enjoy the feast and fellowship; but be aware and be safe.
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has declared New York City, along with Portland and Seattle, as “Anarchist Jurisdictions” due to their local governments having permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and having refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities within their borders.
[sic] … in New York City, city officials have allowed violence to spike. In late May and early June, State and local officials allowed looting to take place for over a week, resulting in damage to an estimated 450 businesses. As of August 16, there have been 896 shootings in New York this year, compared to 492 shootings during the same period last year. The shooting victims include children as young as 1 year old. Shootings have been rising in recent weeks, and police reported 244 shootings last month compared to 88 in July 2019 â€” a 177 percent increase. While violence has surged, arrests have plummeted. In a 28-day period during the months of June and July, arrests were down 62 percent from the same period in 2019. Amidst the rising violence, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council agreed to cut one billion dollars from the New York Police Department (NYPD) budget, including by canceling the hiring of 1,163 officers. In June, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea disbanded the NYPDâ€™s plainclothes anti-crime units, which target illegal guns and violent crime. Police officials have cited this decision as a factor contributing to the rise in violence. In light of this unconscionable rise in violence, I have offered to provide Federal law enforcement assistance, but both Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo have rejected my offer.
This isn’t just idle words either. De Blasio’s outright refusal to maintain law and order and his and his family’s outright, over support for the race rioters of #BlackLivesMatter may well cost NYC more than $7 billion federal grant monies in fiscal 2021 alone. That would be approximately 7.5% of the NYC government’s total expected revenues. And that will be coming on top however much damage the Blacks and their enablers end up costing the city and the $9 billion loss in tax revenue the city faces due to de Blasio’s and Cuomo’s response to COVID-19.
Those of us living in NYC will soon see just how much de Blasio, Cuomo, and their constituencies in #BlackLivesMatter, #Antifa, and other Democrat cells have cost us. The director of the Office of Management and Budget has 30 days to issue guidance to federal agencies on restricting eligibility for federal grants for the cities on the DOJ’s list.
And that, My Fellow Americans, is the sad truth of things in 2020. Democrat politicians ignore or refuse to address the ongoing ambushing police officers, a trend started during Obama’s regime and which has escalated in recent months as more and more Blacks join the insurrection.
Then again, this can’t be considered too surprising. #BlackLivesMatter, #Antifa, and the other splinter groups rioting, burning, and murdering in dozens of cities across America are all Democrats themselves. They’re the constituencies of these politicians. One can hardly expect those Democrat politicians to put their jobs at risk by speaking out against them.
Leave to the Dems to increase funding to USPS and seek defunding of law enforcement agencies now, since Donald Trump is President. And yes! It’s all and only about Americans having elected Donald Trump.
Yes, now and now only! Obama’s Regime tried to close 3,700 post offices in the lead up to 2012 elections and the only complaints from Democrats were about the loss of union jobs – not one peep about the election or “destroying Democracy.” Not. one!
And law enforcement spending? They were perfectly OK with Obama demanding an almost 100% increase in the federal dollars used to subsidize local law enforcement agencies hiring of additional officers.
Yeah, leave it to the Democrats to be so filled with hatred and so self-centered as act this way.
