Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions.
Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new, wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.
The Biden-Harris campaign wants voters to buy into the fiction that they’re for the little guy and not for Big Business, despite their campaign being funded and supported by Hollywood, Big Tech, and a plethora of really big money donors. But then, that’s the standard Democrat campaign model, i.e., the standard, oft-repeated lie that they try to sell the voters in every single election.
No! The one who is rather ironically the candidate “for the little guy” is the billionaire, President Donald Trump. His policies have been largely targeted at improving their lot in life, and have shown more than a little success. Of course, that is either unreported, misreported, or called racist, populist, and/or nationalist by both the Dems and their media shills.
To further that irony to levels of absurdity that can only be reached in American politics, this all simply means that Biden is a normal, professional, establishment politician – Democrat or Republican – and President Trump is the statistical outlier who represents “Hope and Change!” 😆
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 — 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 NYPD’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.
Yes! Let’s put COVID-19 and the Coronavirus in a purely objective context, paired against our more normal and largely here in the West ignored lethal diseases. COVID-19 daily kills 1.85% of what tuberculosis kills and, more significantly here in the West, COVID-19 kills only 5.45% of the seasonal flu kills each and every day during flu season.
Now, I’m not saying to take no precautions whatsoever, I wasn’t even against a short-term lock-down in heavily infected areas, e.g., my own New York City. The lasting panic and resultant “protective measures” enacted by some in government seem ridiculous though – worse than ridiculous, dangerous.
Think of the precedent that’s we’ve allowed being set in that same purely objective context. Does anyone really believe that these same government bodies won’t expand their actions to “combating” the ever-so more lethal seasonal flu, especially if a coronavirus vaccine isn’t in widespread use before flu season starts in approx. 4 months?
Face it; that is every Democrat politician and media sort of any note. They’re desperate to keep America’s economy on Lock-Down until such time as they can find a vaccine for President Trump, the American people, and most of the White Race, at least those within our borders.
The Dems came to terms with COVID-19 a while ago. It’s President Trump and the pandemic of American patriotism and excellence that elected him that has them all worked up.
Americans are slashing their spending, hoarding cash and shrinking their credit card debt as they fear their jobs could disappear during the coronavirus pandemic. US credit card debt suddenly reversed course in March and fell by the largest percentage in more than 30 years. At the same time, savings rates climbed to levels unseen since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.
Yeah, CNN has a problem with people saving money instead of staying and/or going deeper into debt. After all, they describing increasing one’s savings as “hoarding cash.” They see not spending money that you don’t have and planning to rely more upon yourself during a crisis as threatening behaviors.
Then, I suppose this is to be expected. CNN was, is, and always will be CNN, a leftist mouthpiece and part of the propaganda corps of the Democrat party. As such, their is no part of their ideology that isn’t threatened by people behaving in a responsible manner, especially involving their money.
