[NYPOST] It’s beginning to look like going soft on crime — especially juvenile crime — wasn’t such a hot idea. Is it time to reform New York’s "reforms"? Obviously, it is.
And a reasonable place to begin is with those concerning children who bear adult arms — and who use them with deadly abandon.
The problem is stark and clear, the most recent example being three murders in The Bronx — teenagers killed by other teenagers in what police say were gang-related tit-for-tat shootings of a sort not seen regularly in New York since the ’90s.
That is, not since the last time New York grew tired of the bloody consequences of lax law enforcement and concentrated its prodigious energies on protecting all of its citizens.
The results were spectacular — a city so secure that over time safe streets came to be seen as nature’s way. But complacency set in; activists and their apologists chipped away the policies and practices keeping criminals at bay — and then the dominos began to fall.
Perhaps most relevant right now, and among the most corrosive, is the 2017 "Raise the Age" law, a statute strongly backed by Gov. Cuomo that reset the age of criminal responsibility in New York from 16 to 18.
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] Ubax Gardheere, the embattled progressive county council candidate, who threatened to blow up a school bus filled with children, has been endorsed by a radical activist transit union whose logo is ironically, a bus.
The Transit Riders Union (TRU) is well known in Seattle for being activist foot soldiers for radical causes and Marxist candidates like Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant ...Socialist Seattle city council member who has difficulty distinguishing between her money and the city's... The TRU announced the endorsement after national attention was brought to Gaardheer’s past, and a video of the incident itself, published by The Post Millennial went viral.
[NYPOST] Forced to confront the lethal violence engulfing US cities, President Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant... or is that an act?... now says he wants to refund the police, as he indicated at a meeting with Eric Adams ...retired New York City police captain, member of the New York State Senate, first Black Brooklyn borough president, law and order Dem after a brief fling with the Publicans. The New York Times isn't fond of him, suspecting he may not actually be black... . Astonishingly, Biden is recasting himself as a supporter of law enforcement.

[NYPOST] For Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. The very model of probity.... , it’s "the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. That’s not hyperbole, since the Civil War."Good God! What insurrection or secession is he talking about? What threat to our union?!
Turns out it’s voting laws.
Sorry, Joe, that’s the very definition of hyperbole. The Democrats, who, as a pandemic safety measure, introduced universal mail-in voting without either ID or even asking for a ballot, now say that any change or restriction to that system is literally the confederates attacking Fort Sumter.
In Texas, the proposed law would set hours for early voting, require voters to request an absentee ballot and then write in their driver’s license number or other identification, and set rules for poll watchers. Rather than vote for it, Texas Democrats fled to DC and sang "We shall overcome."
When Oregon Republicans pulled such a stunt in 2019, Vox said they were "subverting democracy." When the Texas Democrats did it, Vice President Kámala Harris Former Oakland mayor Willie Brown's former mistress, then a senatrix from California, and then a former 2020 Dem presidential hopeful. She dropped out because she was polling in negative numbers because of racism. Her father is a Marxist professor emeritus at Stanford and her mother is an Indian of the Hindoo tribe. She is reputedly the proud descendant of a long line of women. Joe Biden picked her for her skin tone, feeling she could also bring in the Native American, women's, and bimbo votes. She's an outstanding exemplar of the Peter Principle, proudly displaying her level of competence in her handling of the Biden Border Surge called it "as American as apple pie."
This is a common refrain. When Democrats change the voting laws, draw the Congressional districts, restrict who can even get on the ballot (looking at you, New York Democratic Machine), or use the filibuster it’s just democracy in action. When Republicans do it, it’s apocalypse now.
These laws will pass, the Republic will stand. But as with his other overwrought warnings of doom, President Joe Biden ...... 46th president of the U.S., father of Hunter...... will prove again that he’s not to be taken seriously.
[BREITBART] Former Democrat Rep. Harley Rouda (CA), who is running to get his old seat he lost to Republican Rep. Michelle Steel (CA), called Republicans who voted for former President Donald Trump ...His ancestors didn't own any slaves... "morons."
Rouda’s comments were made at a town hall hosted by the Laguna Beach Democratic Club, Fox News reported.
During his remarks, Rouda said, "Trump being at the top of the ticket" in 2020 was one of the reasons he lost his House seat, according to an "audit" he did.
He went on to say that "The fact that six million more ’morons’ voted for this man, is mind-boggling to me," but he noted, "Thank goodness about 11 more million Americans voted for [President] Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. You're a lyin' dog-faced pony soldier... Rouda also blamed Democrat "low-propensity, uninformed voters who came out and voted for Trump and the down the ticket." He said that "impacted" him.
He continued, "When you look at this district, it was 89 percent turnout. So 89 percent of the registered voters voted."
I'm a Cretan and I'm insulted that you called me and my family maroons. We Cretans go back eons & not knowing that you are an Imbecile, I know that because my uncle on my fathers side is one, and we stay way away from him, because he is just like Joseph Robinette Biden Jr...your perverted, usurper, fake leader of the USA.
You will be ground into DUST Harley.
/\ Trump was obviously at the top of the ballot, and 'easy fix' (little math required). Down ballot candidates were too numerous and involved various districts and candidates. Simply too many different ballots to contend with for effective cheating. I'm sure the dems have a down ballot fix in the works somewhere.
The will of 75,000,000+ voting morons simply had to be undone as quickly as possible.
(from da internet somewhere just now) Moron is a term once used in psychology and psychiatry to denote mild intellectual disability. The term was closely tied with the American eugenics movement. Once the term became popularized, it fell out of use by the psychological community, as it was used more commonly as an insult than as a psychological term. It is similar to imbecile and idiot.
[NYPOST] Democrats are united in the belief that laws of economics no longer exist. That you can spend trillions upon trillions — anything you want, really — with no downside.The laws of economics respectfully disagree.
Inflation is up 5.4 percent year-over-year, the largest increase in 13 years. Partly, that’s the bounce-back from the pandemic, but it’s also because of the massive spending bills pushed through by both the Trump and Biden administration, the same old faces in slightly different places, the same old ideas, the same old graft ...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know... s.
Some stimulus was clearly necessary, but now that the economy is heating up again, the Democrats want to spend even more — $6 trillion.
If they succeed, expect inflation to shoot up even more. Progressives don’t care. They’ll claim credit for an increase in wages and government aid. But chances are that won’t make up for the rising cost of daily necessities like gas, meat and milk. Inflation is, above everything, a tax on the poor.
People might try to find a haven in property, gold or crytocurrency. I don't trust property as it already seems over-inflated. I am leery of crytocurrency as well. But then I am old engineer and not a financial guy. I've taken a hit a couple of times.
[NYPOST] Team Biden seems determined to dismantle all its predecessor’s policies — even those that promised to transform the dysfunctional Middle East for the better.The White House "suspended the Abraham Fund indefinitely," Israeli financial paper Globes reported last week, citing US and Israeli sources. The public-private partnership was established last year after Israel signed the US-brokered Abraham Accords with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, the first peace deals between the Jewish state and Arab nations in decades.
The Trump administration called the Abraham Fund "an integral part" of the peace deals; it would "mobilize more than $3 billion in private-sector-led investment" to demonstrate "the benefits of peace by improving the lives of the region’s peoples." It was opened to Morocco and Sudan when they joined the accords too.
It was smart diplomacy: The fund would nurture more peace deals as it showed how Arab-Israeli cooperation brought prosperity all over the Middle East.
