No justice, no peace, no tax payments [With Comment by John]

Featured image Marilyn Mosby burst into the nation’s consciousness when, following the death of Freddy Gray, she declared: To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America. I heard your call for “no justice, no peace.” Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man. Mosby, Baltimore’s top prosecutor, purported to deliver justice by charging six Baltimore police officers with crimes. If that »

Dick Durbin’s not so beautiful mind

Featured image In a post below, I complained about how, instead of questioning Amy Coney Barrett, Senators are using her as a prop while they make speeches. Not surprisingly, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a world class grandstander, was the biggest culprit during three hours or so of the hearing that I watched. Sen. Dick Durbin did a fair amount of speechifying, too. Much of it was directed, not at the issue of whether »

The Gretchen Whitmer blame game [Updated]

Featured image The FBI has accused Michigan militia members of plotting to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The kidnapping was to be part of a wider plan to overthrow several state governments believed by militia members to be violating the Constitution, according to the FBI. Whitmer, her fellow Democrats, and their media allies are blaming President Trump for inciting the militia lunatics. Whitmer repeated the falsehood that Trump has refused to condemn white »

Baltimore’s next mayor can’t handle the truth

Featured image Brandon Scott will be the next in a long line of Democrats to run the city of Baltimore. He won the Democratic primary, and Baltimore is essentially a one party town. Like many big cities run by Democrats, Baltimore is plagued by violent crime. In Baltimore, this plague is the direct result of its politicians’ unwillingness to support the police following the accidental death of Freddy Gray. In last week’s »

Life In a Blue City

Featured image In the video below, filmed in Hollywood, a Prius driver is stopped by a mob of Antifa/BLM criminals. They try to haul him out of his car, but he gets away. They pursue him in multiple vehicles, and a pickup cuts him off. Again the criminals try to assault him, and again he saves his life by driving away. The video ends with the victim being arrested and handcuffed by »

Law Enforcement Priorities

Featured image This woman, attending a high school football game in Ohio, outdoors and without wearing a mask, was tased, handcuffed and arrested. She put on an impressive resistance, even after being tased. And at least one of the officers arresting her doesn’t appear to be wearing a mask, either. Via PJ Media: It isn’t only attending football games that can run afoul of the law. Going to church can be illegal, »

Biden Voters Reportedly Attack Home of Trump Supporters in Minnesota

Featured image The Democrats’ vow to “burn everything down” if they don’t get their way is allegedly being fulfilled. Last night in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, unknown arsonists attacked the home of two Trump supporters, burning the family’s garage and several vehicles and destroying a large Trump sign in their yard: As shown in one of those photos, the arsonists apparently spray painted “Biden 2020,” “BLM” and the Antifa symbol on a garage »

Leftists Trash Portland [Updated]

Featured image Last night, Antifa/BLM criminals (there no longer seems to be any distinction between the two organizations) ran riot in Portland for something like the 100th day in a row, stopping traffic, starting fires, and smashing and looting stores. There seems to be be little or no police presence in Portland, and no political will to restore order to the city before it becomes a dead zone. As always, Andy Ngo »

From a Minneapolis Principal, a Cry From the Heart

Featured image If you want to understand what is going on in Minneapolis, which is probably similar to what is happening in a number of leftist-run cities around the country, please take seven minutes to watch this video. It was made by the Principal of Minneapolis’s North High School, in modern times the most heavily black high school in the city. Her name is Mauri Melander Friestleben. The boy whose death she »

America’s Most Pathetic Government Body?

Featured image The Minneapolis City Council is a strong contender for that title. After months of talk about disbanding the Minneapolis Police Department, and an actual vote intended to move in that direction, the City Council is now demanding to know why crime in the city has skyrocketed. Three months after their majority pledged to end the city’s police department, the Minneapolis City Council pressed chief Medaria Arradondo for a plan to »

Republican Campaign Aide Murdered In Minneapolis

Featured image Lacy Johnson is the Republican who is challenging Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th District. Lacy is an excellent candidate fighting an uphill battle. Last night, two of his campaign volunteers were shot in North Minneapolis. The local CBS outlet has the story: The 17-year-old boy killed and another man hurt Monday in a north Minneapolis shooting were members of a Republican congressional candidate’s campaign. The Lacy Johnson campaign says the »

A Day Brightener

Featured image In Sacramento, several police cruisers apparently were responding to an emergency with their sirens blaring. A group of Black Lives Matter activists apparently thought that their inalienable rights include the right to prevent police officers from doing their jobs. A group of BLMers surrounded one of the police cars in an effort to immobilize it, while one of them jumped onto the hood. It didn’t end well. I especially enjoy »

Crime Comes to the Suburbs [Updated]

Featured image Edina, Minnesota, is an elite suburb that formerly had one of the most outstanding public school districts in the country. That was before Edina’s school system went “woke” and began prioritizing indoctrination over education. In recent years, Edina’s schools have slipped badly in objective test measurements. This coincides with the city’s transformation from a Republican bastion, as recently as 25 years ago, to a deep-blue outpost of progressivism. How is »

A City In Decline

Featured image Early this morning there was a gunfight in downtown Minneapolis near Target Field. It was partially captured by an Uber driver’s dash cam. According to Downtown Minneapolis Crime Watch shots were exchanged by multiple combatants. Here is the video: The passenger seems weirdly insouciant. Maybe that is what happens if you spend time in Minneapolis. Based on the dispatch audio, it sounded like it was a mutual combatant situation with »

Officers Shot In Compton [Updated]

Featured image Two deputy sheriffs in Compton, California were shot last night by a man who approached their squad car while it was parked on the street, and opened fire: Update: The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation. pic.twitter.com/cBQjyKkoxJ — LA County Sheriffs (@LASDHQ) September 13, 2020 The deputies are a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man. Both were shot multiple times and are in »

Feds begin prosecuting rioters in Portland

Featured image Federal prosecutors have started filing civil disorders charges against violent protesters in Portland, Oregon. They are filing the charges under a federal statute enacted in 1968 in response to the rioting of that era. It’s interesting, I think, that the Congress that passed this statute was controlled by Democrats. In 1968, the GOP was outnumbered in both chambers to a much greater degree than it is now. Back then, Democrats »

Suspect Identified In Portland Murder

Featured image The Oregonian reports that a suspect has been identified in the murder Sunday night of Aaron Danielson, a Donald Trump supporter, in Portland: A 48-year-old man who was accused of carrying a loaded gun at an earlier downtown Portland protest is under investigation in the fatal shooting Saturday night of a right-wing demonstrator after a pro-Trump rally. Michael Forest Reinoehl calls himself an anti-fascist and has posted videos and photos »
