-Lurid Crime Tales-
DC Mayor With a Majority-Minority Police Force Feels ‘Powerless’ To Stop Gun Violence Killing African-American Kids
[Red State] The sad reality of today is that there are a dozen or more stories across the country from just the last few days of African-American children dying from gun shots — and none were fired from the weapon of a police officer.

The reports out of city after city over the past few weeks about record numbers of deaths from gunshots are just almost mind-numbing.

Earlier today my colleague Brandon Morse covered the story in Atlanta about an 8 year-old girl shot and killed while in a car with her mother at the entrance to what used to be the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by an Atlanta Police Officer three weeks ago. The 8 year-old girl, Secoriea Turner, was killed when two armed men shot into the car after her mother refused to yield to their instructions when she attempted to turn around and leave the parking area. They weren’t security or police — they were just two criminals with guns "dictating" to law abiding people in Atlanta what they must do. Maybe for Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms this was finally "enough is enough." That’s what she said today. But those are just words. Maybe she’ll call Fulton County DA Paul Howard and make him understand how destructive to policing it is to prosecute a police officer for "felony murder" when he’s pursuing a fleeing felon who had just assaulted another officer with a weapon that Howard himself called a "deadly weapon" in a televised press conference only 2 weeks earlier.

But I want to call attention to DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s press conference earlier today about the shooting death of 11 year old Davon McNeal on July 4th, while his mother was hosting a "nonviolence" cookout at the home she shared with the little boy.

Government
Now House Dems Are Threatening to Shut Down the Government Over Statues

House Democrats working on the annual appropriations bill say that they will force a government shutdown unless the statues of Southern politicians in the Capitol are removed.

The government will technically run out of money on September 30 unless Congress passes appropriations bills. The appropriation for the legislative branch includes the demand that the Confederate statues in public areas be removed and returned to the states that donated them.

The Democrats are also demanding that plaques and markers that honor people with "unambiguous records of racial intolerance" be removed as well.

The move is a political ploy to force Republicans into an uncomfortable political position while displaying their racial bona fides to the mob.

I really don't see how this benefits them as it is the local, district representatives that get hit hardest by this. The average union man, working on military-government projects will be furloughed right as they are in the heat of the election cycle.
They will blame their local representative more than Trump.

#1  In many ways its starting to look like the Democrats want to lose.

1. Democrats are in constant civil war. Corrupt wing versus the super-far left that the corrupt know don't appeal to the center of the country.
2. Corrupt democrat wing realizes they are forced to demand increasingly bizarre things as the GOP kept caving.
3. Corrupt Democrat wing knows that the nation is close to an economic death spiral.
4. Yelling Orange-man bad is fun.

So if they let the Marxists go to town they get smashed and GOP gains a spine and helps Trump fix the economy and undo their more recent crazy demands. This allows them to rage against Orange Man for decades as well as re-fight the same battles to put all that stupid crap back into the laws.

It also lets them get there crap together in time for 2024 against Pence and 8 years of Orange man which should be a lot easier. Especially if their own crazies have been humiliated into silence.

Either that or they truly are insane and think the center of America thinks like they do. This is a possibility as well and the results will be the same so it may not matter.
Posted by: rjschwarz || 07/07/2020 12:13 Comments || Top||

#2  I have thought of that as well. Right now they are losing the fight against the far-left in their party. If they push those ideas and win, then they are good. If they push those ideas and Trump wins in a landslide, they can purge those ideas and people from the demoncrat party.

Right now it is looking like they want a Trump landslide so they can do the second option.

Federal judge shuts down Dakota Access pipeline
[UPI] A federal judge ordered the shutdown of the Dakota Access pipeline until an environmental review can be completed, handing a blow to the Trump administration and victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
Up to the appeals court for reconsideration or straight to the Supreme Court?
President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
signed an executive order earlier in the year allowing for the completion of the Dakota Access pipeline after the B.O. regime blocked it over environmental concerns.

The pipeline has long been contentious in North Dakota because of its closeness to tribal lands. Supporters touted its safety and that it would create jobs for the local community.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg
...Obama appointee, appointed by UNSC chief justice John Roberts presiding judge of the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and chief judge of the US Alien Terrorist Removal Court....
said the pipeline must be closed within the next 30 days. He ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to re-examine the risks of the pipeline and prepare a full environmental impact statement.

"Today is a historic day for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the many people who have supported us in the fight against the pipeline," Mike Faith, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, said in a statement. "This pipeline should have never been built here. We told them that from the beginning."

#3  Yet another Judge John Roberts and Soetoro legacy. BTW, he is or has been a FISA judge:

On June 17, 2010, President Barack Obama formally nominated Boasberg to the District Court for the District of Columbia.[9] Boasberg was confirmed on March 14, 2011 by a vote of 96 ayes to 0 nays.[13] He received his commission on March 17, 2011.[10]

#6  I expect the appeals court will stay the District court's decision. With respect to the Supreme court I'm not so optimistic.

The Obama decision to deny the permit was based on the imagined effect of construction; that it would discourage other countries emission reduction programs. Even the Obama team couldn't find any actual environmental detriment.

#7  ...Obama appointee, appointed by UNSC chief justice John Roberts presiding judge of the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and chief judge of the US Alien Terrorist Removal Court....

Spencer Cox defeats Jon Huntsman in Utah GOP governor primary
GOOD! That smarmy little punk Huntsman lost his good will with the voters
[The Hill] Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox fended off former Gov. Jon Huntsman in the Republican primary race to succeed Gov. Gary Herbert (R).

Cox prevailed in a crowded June 30 Republican primary with 36.4 percent of the vote, according to The Associated Press. Huntsman received 34.6 percent of the vote. Results were out on Monday after the state accounted for a surge in mailed ballots.

A former state representative, Cox has served as Utah's lieutenant governor under Herbert since 2013.

Cox will be the favorite to replace the retiring Herbert, who endorsed his lieutenant governor. The state last elected a Democratic governor in 1980.

Polls had indicated a tight race between Cox and Huntsman ahead of their primary, with Huntsman holding high name recognition from his time as governor and Cox benefiting from incumbency.

Biden says he is going to ‘transform’ the nation if elected
If he's going to "transform" the nation that implies it needs transformation. Many of us happen to like this country. It's got things that need fixed, like the education system and corruption and the Soros sedition machine, but there's so much that's good about it I'd be deeply opposed to throwing it away for "something else."
[FOXNEWS] Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
tweeted Sunday night that if he gets elected, his administration "won’t just rebuild this nation — we’ll transform it," raising speculation online about what exactly in the country will be transformed.

The tweet comes after a politically charged Fourth of July weekend, as the country works to manage a new surge in COVID-19 cases and tries to emerge from weeks of tense protests that have resulted in a widening divide between Democrats and Republicans.

Biden’s tweet did not specify what exactly he means by transforming the country. His critics from the left have expressed concern that he served in the upper echelon of government for over 40 years and didn't help solve these major issues in the past. His critics from the right insist that a Biden White House will take marching orders from the Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem Congressgirl from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details. She was the inventor of the Green New Deal, though she doesn't talk about it much anymore...
wing of the party. Some conservatives say his vice president pick will be an early indicator of his administration's direction.

His campaign sent a link to his website when reached by Fox News for comment about the tweet. The tweet appeared to be embraced by supporters and was liked 140,000 times as of early Monday.

Scott Morefield, a media and politics news hound for the Daily Caller, responded to Biden’s post and said the transformation Biden was referring to would be the country's turn "into a socialist hellscape."

Biden's website lays out his plans to combat the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
by offering, for example, the "wide availability of free testing." The campaign says a Biden White House would offer Americans a "decisive economic response that starts with emergency paid leave" to help those affected by the virus.

#6  The notion of fairness requires us, apparently, to treat all peoples the same in our actions and our thoughts. This applies to victims of alzheimers as well as everyone else. Mr Biden should be allowed to run for president like anyone else. And you should ignore his disability in your vote!
You can vote against him though if you dislike his notion of transforming the USA into Zimbabwe or Venezuela.
