BIDEN AND "REASSEMBLED" OBAMA TEAM WON'T RESTORE LAW AND ORDER

Remember when we said that if Biden were elected, he’d essentially be bringing back the old Obama machine to the White House? (Of course, my writer Laura Ainsworth has been saying for two years that Michelle Obama will end up either being the nominee or running on the ticket with Biden –- if he manages to make it to the election –- with the goal that she end up in the Oval Office with the original Obama team.)

Well, we'd like to thank Ray Arroyo on Laura Ingraham’s “Seen and Unseen” segment Wednesday for pointing something out. Former President Obama and presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden got together to record a video conversation, and the Biden campaign has released a trailer. The campaign made quite a production out of it, with cameras following the two men as they exit their cars with entourages in tow and even time their entrances from the elevators. Arroyo describes it as playing “like a streaming event.”

He also points out one moment in this trailer in which “Obama reveals more than perhaps he intended.” Can you guess what it is?

It's when Obama says this: “You are going to be able to reassemble [pause and big hand gesture] the kind of government that cares about people and brings people together.”

Okay...REASSEMBLE? Arroyo recalls for his audience the “old group” of Susan Rice, Eric Holder and John Kerry; of course, there are many more. (Quite a few of them are probably still at the FBI.) Whether or not Michelle Obama is Biden's running mate, it’s easy to see that the same old Democrat machine will be back if he wins. Deja vu all over again.

And does anyone think Biden would be willing and able to stop the lawlessness in “blue” cities around the country? No, the only way he'd be able to quell the protests would be to give those thugs everything they demand. They have a long list of "reforms" that would end America as we know it, and Biden would just do it all. I like what Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia said on BREITBART NEWS TONIGHT about Biden, that he is the “leader of lawlessness.”

Collins, who is now running for the U.S. Senate, praised President Trump for working to restore law and order when that is exactly what our country desperately needs.

Elections have consequences, said host Matthew Boyle, and he had a message for those who care about law and order: “I’m calling out to all the listeners of Breitbart Radio tonight: do not think for one second the conservative voice in America needs to be complacent in this country. If you don’t like [it] in these cities, if you don’t like lawlessness, if you don’t like the liberal takeover of your rights and your freedoms, your guns, or anything else, then you have to do more than simply just talk about it.”

We have to fight for what matters, he said. That includes having “a bigger conversation” about “the fact that Joe Biden in his basement in Delaware has been subscribing to these ultra-leftist positions of defunding the police and disrespecting the police.” He has “caved to leftist groups.”

Nothing less than a “conservative movement” will stop this.

But these are the people to whom Joe Biden would bow.

Here are just a few of the ideas these “woke” prosecutors in the Seattle area –- King County –- would like to see considered:

First, to not necessarily file third-degree assault charges against someone who attacks a police officer. “These (charges) often arise from aggressive responses by law enforcement officers toward persons of color, or from an arrestee’s mental health or substance abuse episode,” so such cases should be filed “reluctantly.”

Also, to not file third-degree assault charges against someone who attacks a police officer if the officer didn’t have his bodycam turned on or didn’t have proper training in de-escalation and “implicit bias.”

In addition, to give crime investigators “less input” into bail recommendations. But this group does have recommendations of their own; for example, they think “Burglary 2” suspects with no violent history shouldn’t be held in jail during a pandemic “simply because [Seattle] PD is annoyed by how often they’re responding to break-ins.” (!)

They also recommend that prosecutors not file charges on referrals for: escape, eluding, drug possession, drug possession with intent to deliver, delivery of controlled substance, second-degree burglary, and auto theft, “as long as the suspect “has remained crime free from when the case was referred to present.”

I wish I could say I was making this up, but it’s real. All of these crimes would essentially go unpunished. As in, go and sin no more!

The prosecutor who brought this letter to the attention of FOX Q13 (and did not wish to be identified) was disheartened. “I don’t even know why we’re prosecutors anymore,” this person said. Indeed. “It seems almost as if the prosecutor’s office becomes less and less relevant and necessary to a safe society when we’re willing to let burglars or robbers go free or have a license to assault police officers.”

This letter isn’t the only “starting point” for long-term “reform” of law enforcement in Seattle. Tuesday, an internal memo from the Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention outlined their plan to end juvenile detention by 2025 and to close the King County Jail in downtown Seattle once the pandemic is under control.

And this November, King County residents will vote on whether the sheriff will continue to be elected or instead be appointed, responsible just to county officials. Some, obviously, in county government are pushing to have more direct control over the sheriff. Voters will also decide whether or not the charter can be changed to transfer some policing functions to “other offices.” (Uh-oh.) As councilmember Girmay Zahilay said, “Millions of people around the nation have said we need to redirect most policing functions to unarmed, public health, and community-based alternatives. The King County Charter as currently written does not allow us to do this.”

Maybe the people who wrote the King County Charter “as currently written” were not insane. Does anyone think that a (shudder) President Joe Biden --- or whoever his chosen successor might be --- would do anything to preserve law and order in an environment such as this? Biden has already said he definitely would “redirect” funds away from the police. There is no question that he would support redirecting their duties as well.

This would be a hopeless situation for law enforcement. So what we need to do this November is “redirect” the power away from leftists and back towards law enforcement, and the one we can count on to oversee that is President Trump.

50 PLUS DAYS AND COUNTING...

After more than 50 days of rioting in Portland, Oregon, and Mayor Ted Wheeler not only doing nothing to stop it but instead defending it, threatening federal officers who came to protect federal buildings from assaults by the mobs, ordering local police not to cooperate with the feds, and actually joining the protesters, President Trump finally had enough. He dispatched federal law enforcement officers (not federal troops) from the DHS to Portland and may send them to other cities.

Naturally, this is being decried as outrageous, unconstitutional and unprecedented, even though previous Presidents have done it, only they actually did send federal troops or nationalized State Guard troops. For instance, FDR sent thousands of federal troops to Detroit to end deadly race riots that had gone on for days (not nearly two months, as in Portland.)

Oregon Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer claims that Portland isn’t as bad as it looks. Perhaps auditioning for a gig with MSNBC, he insisted, “Portland, Oregon, is not out of control. To be sure, there are some people who have strong feelings and there are some who have done things that are inappropriate and unlawful.” Yeah, and the Chicago Fire was just a weenie roast that got a little too exuberant.

Mayor Wheeler decried the deployment of federal officers to do the job he’s refused to do of protecting public safety and enforcing the law. He complained, “This is not a de-escalation strategy. This is flat-out urban warfare and it's being brought on this country by the President and it's got to stop now." Yeah, it’s all Trump’s fault. His sending in federal officers after more than 50 days of riots is the reason there are riots. After all, Wheeler’s “de-escalation strategy” was working so well up till now.

Wheeler was with the protesters when federal officers used tear gas to end their assault on the federal courthouse, and he got tear gassed himself. This was after protesters heckled him, gave him demands and chanted for him to resign, so he’s really racking up friends on all sides. I don’t wish any harm on anyone, but a lot fewer people would’ve been injured and lost their businesses if he had, at any point in the past two months, done his job. So he can cry me a river.

"PEACEFUL PROTESTORS"

And speaking of those “Peaceful Portland Protesters,” three federal officers who had lasers shone into their eyes Monday while defending the federal courthouse are suffering worse than a little tear gas irritation. They may be permanently blinded.

Officers are now being issued laser eye protection, not that it will help these officers. Thanks to Instapundit for reminding us that using lasers to blind people is classified by the United Nations as a war crime.

Also, as for the claims that they are “unidentified federal goons,” they did have their names on their uniforms, but those will now only show their badge numbers after 38 of them were doxed. That means their home addresses and other personal information was looked up and released, so they and their families could be threatened. Obviously, threats made by people who are willing to commit war crimes need to be taken seriously, even if blue city mayors refuse to.

OCCUPY CITY HALL

It appears that even New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio actually has a limit to what he’ll tolerate. Of course, like most of the leftist big city mayors, he only reaches the end of his patience with lawless radicals when they get too close to him. In this case, it was the “Occupy City Hall” camp where people had been illegally squatting in front of City Hall for a month, demanding the police be defunded. It turned into a magnet for homeless people, and DeBlasio said, had become a health and safety hazard (as if it weren’t from the minute it went up.)

Wednesday morning at 3:40 a.m., about 700 NYPD cops gave the occupiers 10 minutes to get up and get out, then moved in to remove them so all the garbage and graffiti could start being cleaned away. The scrubbing and disinfection process is expected to take weeks. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, “The graffiti is just another manifestation of the city in decline.”

No kidding. Wonder what could have caused it to decline so quickly?

HOPEFUL SIGNS

There are hopeful signs that a backlash is rising against weeks of unbridled anti-American and anti-police lawlessness and the Democratic officials who are standing by and enabling it. Among those signs:

A new survey by the Cato Institute found that “62 percent of Americans self-censor their political expression out of fear of offending others. Majorities across the political spectrum said they are worried about sharing their political opinions, including 52 percent of Democrats, 59 percent of independents, and 77 percent of Republicans.” And not just offending others, but also out of fear of retribution, like losing their jobs, if they tell anyone what they really think. You think that might be skewing polls a bit?

In the swing state of Pennsylvania, Joe Biden reportedly has an inexplicable 53-40% poll lead over Trump, despite Biden’s promises to destroy coal and fossil fuel jobs and Trump’s great record of job creation. Yet a new Monmouth University survey found that 57% of the state’s voters believe there is a base of “secret Trump voters” who just refuse to say that they plan to vote for him. Let’s hope that both of these surveys are evidence of a literally “silent majority.”

Despite continuing majority support for the overall concept of “Black Lives Matter,” the tide has turned on the anti-police radicalism of the movement. A new Rasmussen survey found that only 23% of Americans support cutting their local police budgets to spend the money on social services instead, a drop of four points in just a few weeks. Meanwhile, 66 percent now oppose cutting their community’s police budgets, a jump from 59%. That includes 69% of whites, 62% of non-black minorities and 57% of black people.

Only 12% now think defunding the police will reduce crime. Sixty-one percent believe it will increase crime. Wonder what was their first clue?

Finally, a new Zogby poll of black voters finds that Trump has 14% support and Biden 77%. That sounds lop-sided, but it’s actually considered “dismal” for a Democrat, who usually counts on 90% or more black support.

Maybe black voters are tired of being told, election after election, that they have to vote for the people who keep their schools lousy and their neighborhoods crime-ridden because the guy on the other side who’s creating jobs for minorities and trying to arrest the criminals who prey on them, help bring business and economic opportunities to their neighborhoods, stop the looting and burning of their homes and businesses, and give black parents school choice is a “RACIST!!” Maybe they’re wise to the con of being told that if they don’t vote against their own interests, they aren’t really black.

    Very well said! The forbearance of the president for several weeks gave people time to observe the deterioration of communities as a result of the rioters activities. I am thankful that he was not heavy handed immediately. There would have been outcries of white supremacy and racist brutality.

    It's amazing that De Blasio wants to take money away from the police department and then has 27 officers defending the "Black Lives Matter" sign in the road across from Trump Tower. Those officers should be out of the street stopping all the violence! I moved from NYC more than 40 years ago & only wish I could move out of NY State! Thanks for sharing.

    Just a thought...Biden may pick Barack Obama as his V.P. Then when he resigns due to health, Obama will be POTUS AGAIN to continue same crap he started and fine tune his Obamacare. Obama cannot be ELECTED more than twice, so this would eliminate that. He would then get to pick his V.P. (Hillary Clinton perhaps) just as Nixon picked Gerald Ford after Agnew resigned as V.P. to Nixon. Nixon then resigned and Ford became our POTUS!!

    One of my biggest concerns about the election is that people will just stay home and not vote. My 87 year old mother lives in a retirement apartment community. She said most people she talked to (pre-covid) said they were sick and tired of all the bickering, violence, and nastiness. They don't want to have anything to do with the system anymore because it's so horrible. I realize this is absolutely the opposite thing they should do, but I'm hearing this from my neighbors also (we live in Texas). People are fed up and may not go vote. What can be done? We need some positive in our lives right now!

    Governor, as one who has a son that is a police officer in the Portland area, I can tell you that the police force there is really demoralized, frustrated, defeated and are suffering more problems than their profession. They are experiencing, in addition to their personal injuries which my son has experienced, mental, physical health, family and community problems. The entire police community there more than welcome the federal agents that have been deployed there and are so frustrated that they are forbidden to help them. In my son's last communication with me, he said, "I can no longer communicate in writing for fear of being monitored, you haven't seen 50% of the destruction and violence, and I believe this state is beyond saving now, please pray for me and all the officers here."

    Below is a site that was listed on Free Republic concerning Facebook and Twitters plan to block Q, or Qanon from their sites. I could only imagine the liberal outcry if you tried to block a liberal site or topic e.g. BLM.

    Facebook plans to announce QAnon content crackdown next month

    Two Facebook employees also claimed that the company has been coordinating with Twitter and other social media platforms.

    Facebook is reportedly preparing to follow in the footsteps of Twitter and getting ready to purge QAnon content from its platform.

    Followers of QAnon generally support President Trump and believe that an anonymous user account named “Q” shares information online about the plans of a high-level government insider or group of insiders who are working to take down the Deep State (a group inside the government that operates independently of elected officials to promote its own interests).

    The New York Times reports that two Facebook employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Facebook will be taking similar steps to those taken by Twitter in order to limit the reach of QAnon content and the that it will be announcing its plans next month.

    The employees added that Facebook has been coordinating with Twitter and other social media companies when formulating its plans to purge QAnon content.

    Of course that fraud and narcicist, Obama would like to be back in control bringing back all the cronies like Holder, Rice, Kerry and many others. As much as I hope it doesn't happen, I would not be surprised at all that Joe Biden picks Michelle Obama as his running mate. If that happens sadly almost all the liberals will vote for her knowing that there is a very good chance she will be the President when Joe is no longer needed as their useful idiot. All of these possibilities should scare the heck out of any true Republican, conservative, Patriots, Evangelicals and any true American. This election in several months is so crucial that anyone voting against the Democrat-Socialist gets out in person and votes. The Democrats will cheat anyway they can, so again, those who are scared to see Obama control and fundamentally transforming America, need to vote, with no excuses even if it means standing in long lines. We can not afford to lose our nation to the Obama's or any other Democrats. We need to keep the Senate and regain the House and re-elect Donald Trump as President. I hope the RNC campaign committee is already planning on campaign ads aimed at the former Obama administration and all their cronies, in case Michelle Obama is picked as the VP candidate. And Americans in the meantime need to buy more guns and ammo in preparation of a possible Obama era repeat and/or a civil war. Because I think law abiding citizens will have to and need to rise up against the Democrats (if they should win) because this nation will go under with Democrats in control. Think that's far fetched, then look around at the riots, arson, killing in these lawless Democrat run cities. Under Democrat-Socialist control much of our nation will look like Portland, Seattle, Chicago, etc. !!!!

    I'm a naturalized citizen, originally from Germany, and have heard my family speak about what the nazi era was like all of my life. That includes "political correctness" and the social pressures that are placed on people to comply or shut up. My own father made a comment among friends to the effect that "Hitler will destroy Germany" when Hitler invaded Poland, was promptly tattled on by one of his best friends, and the brown shirts showed up at his work a few days later and carried my father away for interrogation and "readjustment" of his thinking. If a German defended a Jew the tattle tales went into action to report it. Even children in school were mined for what was said by parents around the dinner table. I am so saddened to see the same thing happening in the USA, and frankly, I'm glad my father is no longer here to see it. It would have broken his heart. When I was young and heard all these things I was quite cynical, since about half the Germans I knew swore they had nothing to do with the nazis, but in going through my father's papers I found his REAL "Antifa" documentation, not this stupid make-believe Antifa that is currently spouting the same sort of propaganda and violence the nazis spouted. I think in my own family, the loyalties were divided about 50/50, with some of them loyal to the nazi party even though they never officially signed up, while others were like my father who could see what was happening, or my mother who had no political savvy at all, but knew enough to keep her mouth shut for the sake of survival. My father's sister was in the German air force during the war and was a loyal nazi in her heart even though she was not officially in the party, and even after she became a citizen here, she moaned for past glories every time she saw a photo of Hitler, and say "Oh, Mein Furer!" I can recall several times nearly throwing up when I overheard her say that.
    It breaks my hear to see the USA come to the same sort of insanity, with people being forced to be quiet about their preferences due to social pressures. I'm in the same boat myself, since I'm an artist and most of my friends are artists who tend to be very liberal, some of whom have turned their backs on me, and others who simply change the subject if I object to a comment. Thus far one can only get physically hurt by the anti-Trump faction, which at this point is not military, but it all reminds me of the social pressures my parents had to bear while insanity reigned in Germany. Hitler's beginning to the destruction of Germany only took about 12 years (I think). It may take a little longer here, but sad to say, we are well on our way. We can see it every day, even in the corporations who tow the line, let alone much of the population who is ill-educated and ill-informed. Very, very, sad!

BIDEN AND "REASSEMBLED" OBAMA TEAM WON'T RESTORE LAW AND ORDER

Remember when we said that if Biden were elected, he’d essentially be bringing back the old Obama machine to the White House? (Of course, my writer Laura Ainsworth has been saying for two years that Michelle Obama will end up either being the nominee or running on the ticket with Biden –- if he manages to make it to the election –- with the goal that she end up in the Oval Office with the original Obama team.)

Well, we'd like to thank Ray Arroyo on Laura Ingraham’s “Seen and Unseen” segment Wednesday for pointing something out. Former President Obama and presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden got together to record a video conversation, and the Biden campaign has released a trailer. The campaign made quite a production out of it, with cameras following the two men as they exit their cars with entourages in tow and even time their entrances from the elevators. Arroyo describes it as playing “like a streaming event.”

He also points out one moment in this trailer in which “Obama reveals more than perhaps he intended.” Can you guess what it is?

It's when Obama says this: “You are going to be able to reassemble [pause and big hand gesture] the kind of government that cares about people and brings people together.”

Okay...REASSEMBLE? Arroyo recalls for his audience the “old group” of Susan Rice, Eric Holder and John Kerry; of course, there are many more. (Quite a few of them are probably still at the FBI.) Whether or not Michelle Obama is Biden's running mate, it’s easy to see that the same old Democrat machine will be back if he wins. Deja vu all over again.

And does anyone think Biden would be willing and able to stop the lawlessness in “blue” cities around the country? No, the only way he'd be able to quell the protests would be to give those thugs everything they demand. They have a long list of "reforms" that would end America as we know it, and Biden would just do it all. I like what Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia said on BREITBART NEWS TONIGHT about Biden, that he is the “leader of lawlessness.”

Collins, who is now running for the U.S. Senate, praised President Trump for working to restore law and order when that is exactly what our country desperately needs.

Elections have consequences, said host Matthew Boyle, and he had a message for those who care about law and order: “I’m calling out to all the listeners of Breitbart Radio tonight: do not think for one second the conservative voice in America needs to be complacent in this country. If you don’t like [it] in these cities, if you don’t like lawlessness, if you don’t like the liberal takeover of your rights and your freedoms, your guns, or anything else, then you have to do more than simply just talk about it.”

We have to fight for what matters, he said. That includes having “a bigger conversation” about “the fact that Joe Biden in his basement in Delaware has been subscribing to these ultra-leftist positions of defunding the police and disrespecting the police.” He has “caved to leftist groups.”

Nothing less than a “conservative movement” will stop this.

But these are the people to whom Joe Biden would bow.

Here are just a few of the ideas these “woke” prosecutors in the Seattle area –- King County –- would like to see considered:

First, to not necessarily file third-degree assault charges against someone who attacks a police officer. “These (charges) often arise from aggressive responses by law enforcement officers toward persons of color, or from an arrestee’s mental health or substance abuse episode,” so such cases should be filed “reluctantly.”

Also, to not file third-degree assault charges against someone who attacks a police officer if the officer didn’t have his bodycam turned on or didn’t have proper training in de-escalation and “implicit bias.”

In addition, to give crime investigators “less input” into bail recommendations. But this group does have recommendations of their own; for example, they think “Burglary 2” suspects with no violent history shouldn’t be held in jail during a pandemic “simply because [Seattle] PD is annoyed by how often they’re responding to break-ins.” (!)

They also recommend that prosecutors not file charges on referrals for: escape, eluding, drug possession, drug possession with intent to deliver, delivery of controlled substance, second-degree burglary, and auto theft, “as long as the suspect “has remained crime free from when the case was referred to present.”

I wish I could say I was making this up, but it’s real. All of these crimes would essentially go unpunished. As in, go and sin no more!

The prosecutor who brought this letter to the attention of FOX Q13 (and did not wish to be identified) was disheartened. “I don’t even know why we’re prosecutors anymore,” this person said. Indeed. “It seems almost as if the prosecutor’s office becomes less and less relevant and necessary to a safe society when we’re willing to let burglars or robbers go free or have a license to assault police officers.”

This letter isn’t the only “starting point” for long-term “reform” of law enforcement in Seattle. Tuesday, an internal memo from the Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention outlined their plan to end juvenile detention by 2025 and to close the King County Jail in downtown Seattle once the pandemic is under control.

And this November, King County residents will vote on whether the sheriff will continue to be elected or instead be appointed, responsible just to county officials. Some, obviously, in county government are pushing to have more direct control over the sheriff. Voters will also decide whether or not the charter can be changed to transfer some policing functions to “other offices.” (Uh-oh.) As councilmember Girmay Zahilay said, “Millions of people around the nation have said we need to redirect most policing functions to unarmed, public health, and community-based alternatives. The King County Charter as currently written does not allow us to do this.”

Maybe the people who wrote the King County Charter “as currently written” were not insane. Does anyone think that a (shudder) President Joe Biden --- or whoever his chosen successor might be --- would do anything to preserve law and order in an environment such as this? Biden has already said he definitely would “redirect” funds away from the police. There is no question that he would support redirecting their duties as well.

This would be a hopeless situation for law enforcement. So what we need to do this November is “redirect” the power away from leftists and back towards law enforcement, and the one we can count on to oversee that is President Trump.

50 PLUS DAYS AND COUNTING...

After more than 50 days of rioting in Portland, Oregon, and Mayor Ted Wheeler not only doing nothing to stop it but instead defending it, threatening federal officers who came to protect federal buildings from assaults by the mobs, ordering local police not to cooperate with the feds, and actually joining the protesters, President Trump finally had enough. He dispatched federal law enforcement officers (not federal troops) from the DHS to Portland and may send them to other cities.

Naturally, this is being decried as outrageous, unconstitutional and unprecedented, even though previous Presidents have done it, only they actually did send federal troops or nationalized State Guard troops. For instance, FDR sent thousands of federal troops to Detroit to end deadly race riots that had gone on for days (not nearly two months, as in Portland.)

Oregon Democratic Rep. Earl Blumenauer claims that Portland isn’t as bad as it looks. Perhaps auditioning for a gig with MSNBC, he insisted, “Portland, Oregon, is not out of control. To be sure, there are some people who have strong feelings and there are some who have done things that are inappropriate and unlawful.” Yeah, and the Chicago Fire was just a weenie roast that got a little too exuberant.

Mayor Wheeler decried the deployment of federal officers to do the job he’s refused to do of protecting public safety and enforcing the law. He complained, “This is not a de-escalation strategy. This is flat-out urban warfare and it's being brought on this country by the President and it's got to stop now." Yeah, it’s all Trump’s fault. His sending in federal officers after more than 50 days of riots is the reason there are riots. After all, Wheeler’s “de-escalation strategy” was working so well up till now.

Wheeler was with the protesters when federal officers used tear gas to end their assault on the federal courthouse, and he got tear gassed himself. This was after protesters heckled him, gave him demands and chanted for him to resign, so he’s really racking up friends on all sides. I don’t wish any harm on anyone, but a lot fewer people would’ve been injured and lost their businesses if he had, at any point in the past two months, done his job. So he can cry me a river.

"PEACEFUL PROTESTORS"

And speaking of those “Peaceful Portland Protesters,” three federal officers who had lasers shone into their eyes Monday while defending the federal courthouse are suffering worse than a little tear gas irritation. They may be permanently blinded.

Officers are now being issued laser eye protection, not that it will help these officers. Thanks to Instapundit for reminding us that using lasers to blind people is classified by the United Nations as a war crime.

Also, as for the claims that they are “unidentified federal goons,” they did have their names on their uniforms, but those will now only show their badge numbers after 38 of them were doxed. That means their home addresses and other personal information was looked up and released, so they and their families could be threatened. Obviously, threats made by people who are willing to commit war crimes need to be taken seriously, even if blue city mayors refuse to.

OCCUPY CITY HALL

It appears that even New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio actually has a limit to what he’ll tolerate. Of course, like most of the leftist big city mayors, he only reaches the end of his patience with lawless radicals when they get too close to him. In this case, it was the “Occupy City Hall” camp where people had been illegally squatting in front of City Hall for a month, demanding the police be defunded. It turned into a magnet for homeless people, and DeBlasio said, had become a health and safety hazard (as if it weren’t from the minute it went up.)

Wednesday morning at 3:40 a.m., about 700 NYPD cops gave the occupiers 10 minutes to get up and get out, then moved in to remove them so all the garbage and graffiti could start being cleaned away. The scrubbing and disinfection process is expected to take weeks. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, “The graffiti is just another manifestation of the city in decline.”

No kidding. Wonder what could have caused it to decline so quickly?

HOPEFUL SIGNS

There are hopeful signs that a backlash is rising against weeks of unbridled anti-American and anti-police lawlessness and the Democratic officials who are standing by and enabling it. Among those signs:

A new survey by the Cato Institute found that “62 percent of Americans self-censor their political expression out of fear of offending others. Majorities across the political spectrum said they are worried about sharing their political opinions, including 52 percent of Democrats, 59 percent of independents, and 77 percent of Republicans.” And not just offending others, but also out of fear of retribution, like losing their jobs, if they tell anyone what they really think. You think that might be skewing polls a bit?

In the swing state of Pennsylvania, Joe Biden reportedly has an inexplicable 53-40% poll lead over Trump, despite Biden’s promises to destroy coal and fossil fuel jobs and Trump’s great record of job creation. Yet a new Monmouth University survey found that 57% of the state’s voters believe there is a base of “secret Trump voters” who just refuse to say that they plan to vote for him. Let’s hope that both of these surveys are evidence of a literally “silent majority.”

Despite continuing majority support for the overall concept of “Black Lives Matter,” the tide has turned on the anti-police radicalism of the movement. A new Rasmussen survey found that only 23% of Americans support cutting their local police budgets to spend the money on social services instead, a drop of four points in just a few weeks. Meanwhile, 66 percent now oppose cutting their community’s police budgets, a jump from 59%. That includes 69% of whites, 62% of non-black minorities and 57% of black people.

Only 12% now think defunding the police will reduce crime. Sixty-one percent believe it will increase crime. Wonder what was their first clue?

Finally, a new Zogby poll of black voters finds that Trump has 14% support and Biden 77%. That sounds lop-sided, but it’s actually considered “dismal” for a Democrat, who usually counts on 90% or more black support.

Maybe black voters are tired of being told, election after election, that they have to vote for the people who keep their schools lousy and their neighborhoods crime-ridden because the guy on the other side who’s creating jobs for minorities and trying to arrest the criminals who prey on them, help bring business and economic opportunities to their neighborhoods, stop the looting and burning of their homes and businesses, and give black parents school choice is a “RACIST!!” Maybe they’re wise to the con of being told that if they don’t vote against their own interests, they aren’t really black.

    Very well said! The forbearance of the president for several weeks gave people time to observe the deterioration of communities as a result of the rioters activities. I am thankful that he was not heavy handed immediately. There would have been outcries of white supremacy and racist brutality.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU, that a large number of people polled are NOT telling their Presidential choice for fear of negative impact on their lives! NOT THIS GREAT GRANDMA! IF I still lived in my own home, I'd have the biggest and best TRUMP 2020 American flag flying high, right out front, for all to see!!! P.S. My son in law won't allow me for fear of his property being destroyed! GOD KNOWS NO ONE CAN KEEP MY MOUTH FROM SHOUTING...VOTE PRO LIFE, PRO ISRAEL, PRO RELIGIOUS FREEDOM...PRO BIBLICAL TRUTH...RE ELECT DONALD TRUMP!!! VOTE, YOU LOVERS OF FREEDOM AND PRAY AS NEVER BEFORE...AMEN and AMEN. P.S. LOVE YOU, BROTHER!

    It's amazing that De Blasio wants to take money away from the police department and then has 27 officers defending the "Black Lives Matter" sign in the road across from Trump Tower. Those officers should be out of the street stopping all the violence! I moved from NYC more than 40 years ago & only wish I could move out of NY State! Thanks for sharing.

    Just a thought...Biden may pick Barack Obama as his V.P. Then when he resigns due to health, Obama will be POTUS AGAIN to continue same crap he started and fine tune his Obamacare. Obama cannot be ELECTED more than twice, so this would eliminate that. He would then get to pick his V.P. (Hillary Clinton perhaps) just as Nixon picked Gerald Ford after Agnew resigned as V.P. to Nixon. Nixon then resigned and Ford became our POTUS!!

    One of my biggest concerns about the election is that people will just stay home and not vote. My 87 year old mother lives in a retirement apartment community. She said most people she talked to (pre-covid) said they were sick and tired of all the bickering, violence, and nastiness. They don't want to have anything to do with the system anymore because it's so horrible. I realize this is absolutely the opposite thing they should do, but I'm hearing this from my neighbors also (we live in Texas). People are fed up and may not go vote. What can be done? We need some positive in our lives right now!

    Governor, as one who has a son that is a police officer in the Portland area, I can tell you that the police force there is really demoralized, frustrated, defeated and are suffering more problems than their profession. They are experiencing, in addition to their personal injuries which my son has experienced, mental, physical health, family and community problems. The entire police community there more than welcome the federal agents that have been deployed there and are so frustrated that they are forbidden to help them. In my son's last communication with me, he said, "I can no longer communicate in writing for fear of being monitored, you haven't seen 50% of the destruction and violence, and I believe this state is beyond saving now, please pray for me and all the officers here."

What makes people think she will be a viable VP or even a viable President. (and we don't want a third term of Obama.) What a team? Lord help us if they get elected!!! Would it even be legal for Obama to be a de-facto president for a third term?

    I don't know if you covered this topic prior to me subscribing to the "Evening Edition". I have just started to dig into "Q" and it's movement. I first read of "Q" on the American Thinker site. Would you make it a topic of one of your "Evening Editions"?

    Below is a site that was listed on Free Republic concerning Facebook and Twitters plan to block Q, or Qanon from their sites. I could only imagine the liberal outcry if you tried to block a liberal site or topic e.g. BLM.

    Facebook plans to announce QAnon content crackdown next month

    Two Facebook employees also claimed that the company has been coordinating with Twitter and other social media platforms.

    Facebook is reportedly preparing to follow in the footsteps of Twitter and getting ready to purge QAnon content from its platform.

    Followers of QAnon generally support President Trump and believe that an anonymous user account named “Q” shares information online about the plans of a high-level government insider or group of insiders who are working to take down the Deep State (a group inside the government that operates independently of elected officials to promote its own interests).

    The New York Times reports that two Facebook employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Facebook will be taking similar steps to those taken by Twitter in order to limit the reach of QAnon content and the that it will be announcing its plans next month.

    The employees added that Facebook has been coordinating with Twitter and other social media companies when formulating its plans to purge QAnon content.

    Of course that fraud and narcicist, Obama would like to be back in control bringing back all the cronies like Holder, Rice, Kerry and many others. As much as I hope it doesn't happen, I would not be surprised at all that Joe Biden picks Michelle Obama as his running mate. If that happens sadly almost all the liberals will vote for her knowing that there is a very good chance she will be the President when Joe is no longer needed as their useful idiot. All of these possibilities should scare the heck out of any true Republican, conservative, Patriots, Evangelicals and any true American. This election in several months is so crucial that anyone voting against the Democrat-Socialist gets out in person and votes. The Democrats will cheat anyway they can, so again, those who are scared to see Obama control and fundamentally transforming America, need to vote, with no excuses even if it means standing in long lines. We can not afford to lose our nation to the Obama's or any other Democrats. We need to keep the Senate and regain the House and re-elect Donald Trump as President. I hope the RNC campaign committee is already planning on campaign ads aimed at the former Obama administration and all their cronies, in case Michelle Obama is picked as the VP candidate. And Americans in the meantime need to buy more guns and ammo in preparation of a possible Obama era repeat and/or a civil war. Because I think law abiding citizens will have to and need to rise up against the Democrats (if they should win) because this nation will go under with Democrats in control. Think that's far fetched, then look around at the riots, arson, killing in these lawless Democrat run cities. Under Democrat-Socialist control much of our nation will look like Portland, Seattle, Chicago, etc. !!!!

    I'm a naturalized citizen, originally from Germany, and have heard my family speak about what the nazi era was like all of my life. That includes "political correctness" and the social pressures that are placed on people to comply or shut up. My own father made a comment among friends to the effect that "Hitler will destroy Germany" when Hitler invaded Poland, was promptly tattled on by one of his best friends, and the brown shirts showed up at his work a few days later and carried my father away for interrogation and "readjustment" of his thinking. If a German defended a Jew the tattle tales went into action to report it. Even children in school were mined for what was said by parents around the dinner table. I am so saddened to see the same thing happening in the USA, and frankly, I'm glad my father is no longer here to see it. It would have broken his heart. When I was young and heard all these things I was quite cynical, since about half the Germans I knew swore they had nothing to do with the nazis, but in going through my father's papers I found his REAL "Antifa" documentation, not this stupid make-believe Antifa that is currently spouting the same sort of propaganda and violence the nazis spouted. I think in my own family, the loyalties were divided about 50/50, with some of them loyal to the nazi party even though they never officially signed up, while others were like my father who could see what was happening, or my mother who had no political savvy at all, but knew enough to keep her mouth shut for the sake of survival. My father's sister was in the German air force during the war and was a loyal nazi in her heart even though she was not officially in the party, and even after she became a citizen here, she moaned for past glories every time she saw a photo of Hitler, and say "Oh, Mein Furer!" I can recall several times nearly throwing up when I overheard her say that.
    It breaks my hear to see the USA come to the same sort of insanity, with people being forced to be quiet about their preferences due to social pressures. I'm in the same boat myself, since I'm an artist and most of my friends are artists who tend to be very liberal, some of whom have turned their backs on me, and others who simply change the subject if I object to a comment. Thus far one can only get physically hurt by the anti-Trump faction, which at this point is not military, but it all reminds me of the social pressures my parents had to bear while insanity reigned in Germany. Hitler's beginning to the destruction of Germany only took about 12 years (I think). It may take a little longer here, but sad to say, we are well on our way. We can see it every day, even in the corporations who tow the line, let alone much of the population who is ill-educated and ill-informed. Very, very, sad!
