South Bend Looking More Like South Chicago Under Buttigieg

from the Washington Free Beacon:

South Bend’s Violent Crime Continues to Skyrocket Under Buttigieg

Violent crime has risen year-on-year since Buttigieg took office

South Bend, Indiana, has seen a dramatic increase in violent crime since Mayor Pete Buttigieg took office 2012, raising doubts about his ability to govern the city of 100,000.

Despite multiple promises and data-driven solutions from Buttigieg, a comprehensive look at South Bend’s official crime data reveals a systemic problem throughout his tenure. Data submitted by the South Bend police department to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting system are available through 2017; figures on 2018 and the first four months of 2019 were released in the public minutes of the South Bend Board of Public Safety meeting.* read more

Kamala Harris Spins a Yarn

Despite many leftist outlets attempting to spin Kamala Harris’s tale of busing practically “saving her life,” or some such nonsense, what she said on the debate stage, could be classified as a gross exaggeration, if not an outright lie. Either way, she owes Uncle Joe and the American people an apology. Neither he nor we will get one. That’s just not how Kamala rolls.

Here are the facts.

from PJ Media:

Fact Check: Kamala Harris Exaggerates Her History on Busing

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) enjoyed a standout moment in the second night of the 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Thursday when she attacked former Vice President Joe Biden on the issue of federal mandated busing to racially integrate schools. Harris repeated a powerful talking point about why the issue is personal for her, with the memorable tagline: “That little girl was me.” read more

WND Exclusive – Neutering Electoral College Means More Vote Fraud

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Think California voter fraud is no big deal? After all, most of us don’t reside there. And it’s already a deep blue state. It’s not as if voter fraud in the Golden State could possibly affect other states – right?

NBC News – yes, NBC News — reported: “Widespread Voting Fraud Scheme Targets Los Angeles’ Homeless – Prosecutors have accused the group of 14 felonies for a variety of alleged acts during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.”

I was stunned when I saw that leftist NBC actually broke this story, considering it was one of many mainstream media outlets that has insisted for years that there was no fraud being perpetrated by the Democrats. read more

Ruminations of the Day – Kamala Harris and Antifa

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Sometimes, there’s just too much happening all at once, so it makes it difficult to decide on a topic. So instead, how about two?

One:

Here we go again with the birther thing. Really?! And it’s not even a birther question. People are just calling it that.

It worked so well last time, that someone said to themselves – self, I know we looked like complete idiots before with the whole Barack Obama birth certificate. Because of our idiocy, a new word was even coined: birther.

This time the sights have been set on Kamala Harris. No, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Harris was born elsewhere and thus not an American citizen. Websites and supposed journalists are just using the “birther” moniker because it’s more sensational.

Some black guy, Ali Alexander, tweeted that he’s tired of Kamala Harris trying to “rob American blacks of our history.” read more

WND Exclusive – Trump Draws Thousands, Dems Can’t Draw Flies

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Trump kicked off his reelection campaign with an oversized rally in Orlando, Florida, this past Tuesday. The Amway Center Arena, with a capacity of around 20,000, was filled to the rafters.

As various news agencies reported, people started lining up outside the facility up to 40 hours in advance. This type of loyalty is only reserved for major rock stars and once in a lifetime movie events. Certainly not for politicians, and most definitely not for second-termers.

But President Trump has been attracting these kinds of crowds for years now, and it appears his popularity has not waned. read more

WND Exclusive – IS DESPOTISM IN OUR FUTURE?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Other than Uncle Joe Biden, it seems that every other presidential candidate has crossed over from being liberal to full-blown socialist. And many on the right are surprised at this. Many seem surprised at how fast we are descending from a free and liberty-loving society to one that gives every appearance of emulating Venezuela.

But that could never happen here – right? Of course not – although not too long ago Venezuela was one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. But hey, as the saying goes: they just haven’t done socialism right. Seems no one has.

For years, we conservatives complained about Obama, saying that he was a lawless president, he was despotic, that we’ve never seen anyone like him. How did he ever get elected? read more

Republicans Need to Engage in the Healthcare Debate

from the American Spectator:

 Nurse AOC Gets to Pick Democrats’ Presidential Winners and Losers

Healthcare remains the number one issue and again Republicans aren’t in the game.

Medicare for All may sound good,” John Delaney, a former Maryland congressman running for president, told the California Democratic Convention, “but it’s actually not good policy, nor is it good politics.”

The crowd booed, lengthily and lustily, as they had booed former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for informing them that “socialism is not the answer.”

The enfant terrible of the Democratic Party quickly responded through the medium preferred by enfants terrible. read more

Is Eric Swalwell the Biggest Loser?

Please let me have a Town Hall!!

Question: How does a democrat presidential candidate conclude that he is a total loser and doesn’t have a chance in hell of being the nominee? Simple – make a request of the number cable news network in the nation to conduct an on-air Town Hall. And then be summarily dismissed by said network, when every other candidate is being accepted.

from the Daily Caller:

FOX NEWS REPORTEDLY TURNED DOWN SWALWELL TOWN HALL REQUEST

Democratic California Rep. and presidential candidate Eric Swalwell reportedly wanted to participate in a town hall event on Fox News, but the network rebuffed his request. read more

WND Exclusive – Cory Booker Out-Lefts the Rest on Gun Control

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Another hard-left presidential candidate has announced a number of whacky gun control measures. Cory Booker, former virtue signaling mayor of Newark and boyfriend of radical leftist actress and activist Rosario Dawson, has joined another non-viable candidate, Eric Swalwell, in setting gun control as a major platform agenda.

Swalwell wishes to ban, “hand-held weapons of war. We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.” He also claims that, “Our courts haven’t found a constitutional right to have assault weapons, anyway.”

What do you even say to something that inane? read more

Joe Biden’s Apology Tour Begins with a History Rewrite

from the Federalist:

Joe Biden Should Apologize To Clarence Thomas, Not To Anita Hill

History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.

Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters he hopes to court, he permitted too many tough questions attempting to ascertain the truth from Hill. read more
