-War on Police-
Refund the police! Woke Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is set to unveil budget that BOOSTS spending on crime-hit city's PD after she slashed $59M from the department last year

#1  How much does she want to "refund" the police after slashing $59mil in the last budget? Chicago could solve part of their problem by "putting" a different mayor in office. I didn't say "electing" as I don't believe we have been doing that for some time.

#2  Depends a lot as to where these new funds get allocated within the departments.

'Social Welfare' and 'Community Involvement' personnel along with 'Diversity Training' seminars?

Not holding my breath that it will go to actual Law Enforcement or Policing.

[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]
  • Bob Woodward said Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley briefed four entities on his backchannel calls with China behind President Trump's back

  • 'There's nothing hidden about this,' Woodward assured

  • When asked if he knew he was reporting on 'treasonous behavior' by Milley in his new book, he replied: 'No, not at all'

  • Woodward said Milley told CIA Director Gina Haspel, NSA Director Paul Nakasone and chiefs of the military branches to 'watch everything'

  • Also ordered an admiral in charge of the Pacific region to 'cancel operations that the Chinese might see as provocative'

  • Woodward and Robert Costa's new book 'Peril' hits shelves on Tuesday
    ...and they’re selling it hard.

#1  We can't have two presidents during an administration. Some would call this treason.

What Constitution? Ilhan Omar Calls on Congress to ‘Ignore' Senate Rules, Pass Immigration Reform
[Hannity] Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called on Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to "ignore" Congressional rules and pass a partisan immigration reform bill that provides a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented people.

"This ruling by the parliamentarian, is only a recommendation. @SenSchumer and the @WhiteHouse can and should ignore it. We can’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to do the right thing," posted Omar on Twitter.
Q: What is the moisture on Ilhan Omar's brothers peni$ called?
A: Relative humidity.

#1  So now the Dems want to bring a bunch of unvetted Afghans to the U.S. who will most likely congregate in some place like Dearborn or Minneapolis and then elect an Afghan to congress Ilhan Omar. Why is she still in office?
Posted by: JohnQC || 09/21/2021 9:40 Comments || Top||

#2  Well, Senate rules aren't the Constitution, but a Congressthing demanding the Senate do something is more likely to cause the Senate to do the exact opposite.

#3  Typical left think. "The system did not produce the result I wanted, Therefore, the system must be changed."

#4  Haitian criminals have a very aggressive and confrontational approach to crime. You will soon hear horror stories of Haitian illegals after they have been shipped into our communities. They can be very very violent people.

‘He's Still Sleeping’: Elon Musk Mocks President Biden for Utter Incompetence
[Trending Politics] Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk took a shot at President Joe Biden on Sunday for failing to congratulate SpaceX’s Inspiration 4, the first all-civilian space mission to ever take place which splashed down on Saturday evening.

"The President of the United States has refused to even acknowledge the 4 newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What’s your theory on why that is?" asked one Twitter user.

"He’s still sleeping," Musk trolled

#1  Musk owes his riches to the machine that let him be the 21st century equivalent of a 300 AD roman empire tax farmer. I'm not sure he has standing to make fun of the machine's choice for meatpuppet.

#2  Yeah, I kinda think he gets a vote.
Posted by: Skidmark || 09/21/2021 22:31 Comments || Top||

So, I like Musk better than Biden.
Just sayin
