April 27, 2022 by

By Jarrett Stepman ~ The political aftermath of George Floyd’s death produced a surge in murders of black Americans, but it wasn’t at the hands of the police. The numbers are shocking, but not surprising. The FBI previously reported that murders increased by 30% in 2020. But there is more to that story. According to […]

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Amazon is getting out of Dodge. Well, more accurately, Seattle. The massive, mostly online retailer announced recently that it’s relocating 1,800 employees out of a downtown Seattle location due to a huge uptick in violent crime. “Given recent incidents near 3rd (Ave) and Pine (St), we’re providing employees currently at that […]

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Common sense prevailed in Minneapolis on Tuesday. The city won’t replace police officers with social workers after all. Minneapolis’ ballot Question 2, which would have eliminated the city’s police department and replaced it with a “Department of Public Safety,” went down in flames. It lost by a wide margin—nearly 17,700 votes—despite […]

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Immediately upon taking office, President Joe Biden removed President Donald Trump’s designation of Portland, Oregon, as a jurisdiction in anarchy. So, how are things going now? Anarchy reigns in the City of Roses. Over the weekend, police were called to 19 shootings. One of which is likely to be ruled a […]

By P.J. Gladnick ~ CNN’s Chris Cillizza is worried that Congresswoman Cori Bush has given a “gift” to the Republicans for the 2022 midterms. And that “gift” is her over-the-top hypocrisy of using expensive private security for herself while at the same time seeking to deny security for other people by defunding the police. Here […]

By Joseph Vazquez ~ Leftist billionaire George Soros has clearly adopted the defund-the-police movement into his nefarious political agenda to reshape the United States in his image. Fox News reporter Joe Schoffstall (who previously worked at the Media Research Center) reported that Soros is “fueling an initiative to ‘dismantle’ and replace the Minneapolis Police Department, campaign […]

July 16, 2021 by

By Tim Graham ~ Here’s an easy test to see whether fact-checking websites can make any claim to be “independent” and nonpartisan in tone. Biden staffers claimed Republicans “defunded the police.” That’s a bald-faced lie. On the June 27 Fox News Sunday, White House aide Cedric Richmond claimed that because Republicans uniformly voted against Biden’s massive […]

Blame Criminals, Democrat Left For Today’s Crime Surge

June 7, 2021 by

By Deroy Murdock ~ Today’s explosion in violent crime parallels the return of 1970s-style inflation and gasoline lines. Wide ties and polyester slacks can’t be far behind. Criminals themselves are the root cause of crime—now and forevermore. But the thugs’ enablers, and sometime cheerleaders, are the root cause of nearly every contemporary American malady: the […]

January 6, 2021 by

By Joseph Vazquez ~ Supporting a leftist group that advocates defunding the police apparently wasn’t a red flag for liberal outlet Inside Philanthropy’s (IP) “Philanthropist of the Year” award. At least, that’s the message that IP sent when they named Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s liberal billionaire ex-wife MacKenzie Scott their 2020 philanthropy champion. IP praised Scott, stating that […]

Soros-Funded Prosecutors Put ‘Social Justice’ Above Law And Order, Analysts Say

October 19, 2020 by

By Kevin Mooney ~ Self-styled progressive political activists who win election as district attorneys with financial support from wealthy donors have made “social justice” initiatives more important than public safety, legal analysts say. George Soros, the Hungarian American billionaire investor, stands out as the big donor behind a super PAC that helped elect district attorneys […]
