-Lurid Crime Tales-
Biden Offers to Send a ‘Strike Force' Against Chicago Gun Crime
Unleash the Feebs!
[BREITBART] President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. An incredibly corrupt version of Jar-Jar Binks, only well into his dotage...
offered to send a "strike force" into reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
Thursday in order to help Mayor Lori Lightfoot
...the diminutive and vacuous Heronner da Mare of Chicago. When the corpse count rises she blames the guns, which are banned anyway. A racist to the bone, Lori sez that people with the same skin tone all think alike, not quite getting the implications for a city with a population less than thirty percent black...
(D) stem the tide of shootings occurring daily in the city.

ABC 7 reports that a "strike force" would focus on gun trafficking.

Lightfoot responded to Biden’s offer by saying, "My hope and expectation is that they’re going to be coming relatively soon. I’ve made not secret of the fact that this is a matter of incredible urgency and I think the president’s plan is to make a difference in localities like Chicago this summer."

On July 7, 2021, the Chicago Tribune noted that the city has witnessed 2,021 shooting victims this year. That figure represents victims in fatal and non-fatal incidents combined.

The Tribune maintains a second table of data focused solely on homicides, and it shows that 364 have been killed in Chicago so far this year.

Chicago, like all of Illinois, has a 72-hour waiting period on gun purchases, a red flag law, and a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card requirement for would-be gun purchasers. The process for acquiring a FOID card involves a background check.

Moreover, Cook County, the county in Chicago is located, has an "assault weapons" ban.

Yet gun crime in Chicago continues to rage.

MSNBC Agrees With Radical Race-Baiter: GOP Wants 'American Apartheid'
[NEWSBUSTERS.ORG] In wake of President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created ... by the — you know — you know, the thing......
huddling, on Thursday, with radical left-wing activists who pretend to be "civil rights leaders," MSNBC on Friday touted National Urban League President Marc Morial coming out after that meeting and hurling the vile accusation that Republican-sponsored voting reforms and the U.S. Supreme Court
...the political football known as The Highest Court in the Land, home of penumbrae and emanations...
were conspiring to create "American apartheid." Rather than fact-check such a horrendous lie, the partisan cable channel endorsed the disgusting rhetoric instead.

Minneapolis business owner talks about the troubles the neighborhood is going through
[AUDACY] After weeks of unrest in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, a business owner is saying enough is enough and is looking for help to bring safety back to the area.
The owner, who spoke to News Talk 830 WCCO's Adam Carter on the condition on anonymity has owned a business in the area since 2018. He says that the past few weeks of civil unrest has been the worst the area has seen. He says that the problem is with the leadership in the city.

"A disgusting lack of leadership. There is not an adult or a parent in the room. The city needs leadership right now and I don't believe the city leadership that we currently have has it in their DNA to do what it takes to fix, or get under control, the issues that we are facing in Uptown."

As the owner looked to place blame on why the civil unrest is happening in Uptown, he turned his ire to Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender.

"Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender had an opportunity to direct the police forces to deal with the people committing illegal acts, not peaceful protests, but illegal acts. Blocking traffic, setting dumpsters on fire, shooting paintballs at customers, throwing rocks at people. Instead of directing the police to deal with the illegal acts being committed, she tells the police to block traffic so the protesters and agitators can have time to continue their illegal acts."

The Uptown business owner says that he understands peaceful protests in the wake of the death of Winston Smith. He doesn't believe that the people causing the issues in that part of Minneapolis are part of the peaceful protesters.

"It is by far the most moronic leadership decisions you can make when dealing with those that don't have a cause. The agitators don't have a cause, they're anarchists. They just want to stir up trouble."

While the civil unrest has gone on for weeks in Uptown, the owner says he doesn't know how long his business can stay afloat. He is hoping that something can be done to end the pandemonium in the streets.

"At what point do they actually get their fill to deal with it? That's the part that is befuddling and the most upsetting. At what point do you say 'enough is enough?' They are currently saying they are not at their breaking point yet. But Uptown is at its breaking point."

After taking aim at the Minneapolis City Council, the owner had one more salvo for Minnesota Governor Tim Walz.

"Governor Walz is culpable and absent because he is running for re-election and he won't send additional resources to the Minneapolis Police Department to attack and address the issues we're facing. Without a vibrant Minneapolis the state of Minnesota is not vibrant."

Mitt Romney sells $23.5M home after years of backlash from neighbors
[NYPOST] The notorious San Diego home of Willard Mitt Romney, aka Pierre Delecto
...former governor of Massachussetts, the Publican nominee for president in 2012, now Senator from Utah. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney has a record as a successful businessman, heading Bain Capital, and he rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from the midst of bribery and mismanagement scandals. He is currently a trans Republican and a member in good standing of the Never Trump Party, attempting to assume the mantle of the late John McCain...
, which made headlines in 2012 for having planned an installation of a car elevator, is now in escrow for $23.5 million.

The move comes after years of enduring backlash from neighbors for tearing down and demolishing the initial oceanfront structure and building a new, bigger home.
This hasn't been in the San Diego news since he bought it.
Anthony Ciani, a La Jolla, Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,, architect and former neighbor of Romney at the time, told The Post that his issue was mostly concerning public use of the beach.
and legally prolly blocked his view. I'm no Romney fan, but rich people bitching at each other makes me wish a pox on both their houses
"Not all of the neighbors had issues with the Romneys’ project," Ciani said, "but others, including me, disputed their claim to own the sandy beach west of the historic property line which could interfere with the historical public use of the beach, and because that uses that additional area of land to build a larger house than would otherwise comply with the development regulations."
And also he is an icky Republican, even if he loudly proclaims his hate for everything Trump.

#2  Chandler E. Potter, in his 1856 history of Manchester, translates the name as meaning "Beautiful Water in a High Place". He explains that Winnepesaukee is derived from "Winne" (beautiful), "Nipe" (water), "Kees" (high), and "Auke" (a place), meaning literally, "the beautiful water of the high place".

St. Paul police chief disputes DFL Rep. John Thompson's racial profiling claim
[STARTRIBUNE] St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell on Friday defended one of his sergeants against accusations of racial profiling made by a Minnesota state politician ticketed during a traffic stop last weekend.

Rep. John Thompson, DFL-St. Paul, was cited July 4 for driving while under suspension after police say he was pulled over for not having a front license plate. Days later at a rally in St. Paul, Thompson described the encounter as an example of being profiled by police because of his race.

"I thought we weren't doing pretextual stops in this state, but we are," Thompson said Tuesday outside the governor's residence at an event marking five years since his friend Philando Castile was fatally shot by a police officer in Falcon Heights. "We're still getting 'driving-while-Black' tickets here in this state — as a matter of fact, in St. Paul. So let's just call it what it is."

Government Corruption
Jen Psaki: Hunter Biden has 'right' to 'artistic career' and sales won't be corrupt; Pres. Biden didn't discuss business with Hunter despite docs
[NYPOST] White House press secretary Jen Psaki
...a valley girl who woke up one morning and found she was spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of State under Obama. A new American success story, under Biden she became spokeswoman for the whole administration, and she was even able to get her sister a job...
on Friday said first son Hunter Biden
...son of President Joe: cashiered from the Navy, a crackhead, wheeler dealer, leg humper, horn dog, and general all around ne'er do well. We're supposed to feel sorry for him.....
has "a right to an artistic career" — and that his upcoming art sales won’t be an avenue for influence-peddling with his father. Psaki said a "professional gallerist" brokering the sales won’t inform the first son of who is buying his debut artworks — for which he’s seeking up to $500,000 — and that any offers that exceed reason won’t be accepted.

"After careful consideration, a system has been established that allows for Hunter Biden to work in his profession within reasonable safeguards. Of course he has the right to pursue an artistic career just like any child of a president has the right to pursue a career," Psaki said in response to a question from Weijia Jiang of CBS News.

"All interactions regarding the selling of art and the setting of prices will be handled by a professional gallerist adhering to the highest industry standards and any offer out of the normal course will be rejected out of hand," Psaki said at her daily press briefing.

Psaki claims Biden didn't discuss business with Hunter — despite docs that suggest otherwise

[NYPOST] White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted Friday that President Joe Biden
...... 46th president of the U.S. The very model of probity.......
"does not" talk business with his son — despite new records indicating otherwise — and separately confirmed that Hunter Biden still co-owns a Chinese investment firm.Psaki denied that the president talks business with his son in response to new evidence that he met, while vice president, with Hunter Biden’s business associates from Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Mexico.

"The president does not discuss business dealings with family members and otherwise I’m not going to respond to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer," Psaki said in response to a question from The Post at her daily press briefing.

Psaki, who also was asked at the briefing about ethical questions involving the first son’s new art career, additionally confirmed to The Post that Hunter Biden still co-owns a Chinese investment firm known as BHR Partners, which was formed 12 days after he joined his father aboard Air Force Two for a December 2013 trip to Beijing.

Biden and Dems Want a Global Cartel to Set a One-World Corporate Tax Rate. And Republicans Are Going to Help.
[PJ] If you want to stick it to big corporations and rein in their real or perceived abuses, use your political prowess and the laws of your own sovereign country to do it. Instead, the Biden administration wants to sidestep this responsibility and cede U.S. corporate tax policy to create a new global corporate tax rate. Price-fixing tax rates, if you will, would make it harder for companies to jump to cheaper countries to do business. Instead of competition, this group of nations seeks to make businesses their captives.

This is not tax policy, it’s the establishment of a cartel.

It’s not lessening income inequality—one of the reasons given for this socialistic move toward, dare I say it, a global government—it’s intended to enrich government.

This one-world tax plan would kill competition and make the 130 countries that have so far signed on—there are only 169 recognized countries in the world—a one-world-ish cartel where individual liberty would take a back seat to corporate liabilities.

Ironically, The Washington Post, whose owner is one of the biggest oligarchs in the world, sounds positively giddy about the plan.

Dems are losing the multiracial working class on basic lifestyle issues
[NYPOST] The Democrats have a problem: They have run away from their core voters. And they are beginning to notice and worry.

Lefty blogger Kevin Drum noted this recently. He observes that Republicans have moved slightly to the right, but Democrats have moved way, way to the left on social issues.

Drum says he is "personally happy" about the Democrats’ move left. But he is worried, because while the Democratic Party has moved hard left, the voters it relies on to attain power haven’t.
