-War on Police-
'Defund the Police' epicenter now 'grappling with heightened violent crime,' but we can't say why
[CNN via Hot Air] Telly Blair was among 93 people who were murdered in Minneapolis last year, city crime data shows. That’s just a few shy of the total killings in 1995, when the city earned the nickname "Murderapolis." (Neighboring St. Paul witnessed 38 murders last year — a historic high.)

After the police murder of George Floyd in May of 2020, Minneapolis became a worldwide symbol of the police brutality long endured disproportionately by Black people. In a kind of Newtonian response, the city became the epicenter of the culturally seismic "Defund the Police" movement. But that progressive local effort fizzled with a decisive referendum last November.

Now, with its police department under investigation by the Department of Justice, the city of 425,000 is trying to find a way forward amid a period of heightened crime that began shortly after Floyd’s death.

That year, the number of murders soared to nearly 80 — dwarfing the 2019 body count of 46. It has cooled somewhat this year, though the amount of killing — and violent crime in general — remains elevated far above 2019 levels and homicides are on pace to surpass the 2020 figure. The reasons why are far from clear.

Europe
‘Far Right’ Favored To Win Italian Election
The election was yesterday so by now we should know who won.
It was Ms Meloni, as herein predicted. See here.
POSTED ON JULY 26, 2022

[Powerline] An election is coming up in Italy in September, and the Brothers of Italy party, led by co-founder Giorgia Meloni, is currently leading the polls. There has been scant attention to the election in the U.S., but European news coverage is interesting for what it tells us about the state of politics on that continent, which in some ways mirrors conditions here in America.

Good for Italy! Man, drinking all that wine with lunch is definitely good for the brain!

#3  Far right confirmed.

That wasn't even a dog whistle. That was just a regular whistle. Who's the enemy? "Financial speculators" who want to destroy the family and create "the perfect consumer"? Who are these financial speculators who are out to destroy us all and replace us with immigrants? DA JOOZ of course. She could not say more clearly that she's anti-Semitic.

I'd be afraid of her, too, if I was Jewish.

#4  Why does every European conservative always get labeled as “far right”? You never hear the press label the opponent as “far left”.

Legacy media still thinks everyone’s a fool.

#5  She leans away from following Brussels' diktats, that's why she's lady Mussolini.

#6  Let the spying begin, traitorous appointments to emerge, corruption charges filed, false media stories of perversion and cooperation with Trump & Putin…

#7  One of the great lies of the late 20th Century, particularly by academia, is that the Nazis and fascist were 'right wing'. As Lawrence Samuels wrote on “The Socialist Economics of Italian Fascism” at Econlib in 2015, “In essence, the economics of Italian Fascism was Marxist and syndicalist-inspired—and far more left-wing socialist than the economies of many current western nations that embrace a mixed economy of socialism, welfarism and unionism." As for the Nazis just read their party platform.
