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.

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

America is Truly the Only Great Nation

The snobbish British Ambassador to the United States is not a Trump fan. And that’s putting it mildly.

“Sir Kim Darroch [known to some as Sir Douche of Bag], one of Britain’s top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump’s character, warning London that the White House was ‘uniquely dysfunctional’ and that the President’s career could end in ‘disgrace’,” writes the Daily Mail.

Evolved globalists have always had a problem with any President who wishes to put America first, and they especially hate Trump for actually stating it and setting out to accomplish it. This, in domestic and international political circles, is just not done. Nuance and platitudes are the accomplishments of diplomats – not actually getting things done. And certainly not to benefit the United States.

It’s as if Trump doesn’t understand America’s place in the global community hierarchy. We are supposed to sit quietly in the corner and let the smart people run things. Oh, but we’re expected to pay for everything, just for the privilege of breathing the same rarified air. read more

Kaepernick Cherry-Picks Frederick Douglass – Ted Cruz Sets Him Straight

from the Blaze:

Ted Cruz handles NYT writer who said he has ‘no business’ using Frederick Douglass’ name

The backstory

Kaepernick quoted the following part of a Douglass speech:

“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

 

The Lie of a Palestinian State

Part Two of Two

from The American Spectator:

The Myth and Fraud That There Ever Was an Arab Country or People Called ‘Palestine’ (Part Two of Two)Image result for Palestine lie

As noted in the prior installment, the entire “Palestine” myth is built on one Big Lie after another. Recently, the New York Times even published an article asserting that Jesus was a “Palestinian Arab.” Having spread the Big Lie for so long — half a century — having defrauded so many gullible people and a new generation of campus ignoramuses to believe the Big Lie that there ever was any Arab country called “Palestine” and the concomitant Big Lie that there ever was an ancient Arab people called “The Palestinians,” they now have moved to the next phase: that Jesus supposedly was one. read more

It’s Not July 4th, It’s Independence Day

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

On July 2, 1776, George Washington sent general orders to his officers explaining the war effort:

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them.

The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect. We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die. Our own Country’s Honor all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. read more

Independence Day Presidential Passings Marked by Divine Providence

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There were five Founding Fathers who became president. Some would say that no – in fact there were six. What about John Quincy Adams? Was he not a founder? No – no he wasn’t. He was the son of second President John Adams, but was only a child of the Revolution.

The five, in order, where of course George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe.

It was Divine Providence that brought all these great men together at this exact place and this exact time in history. It was through acts of Divine Providence that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were crafted and signed. It was Divine Providence that assisted in the founding of our nation. And it was Divine Providence that God put his final stamp on the founding of the United States, with the passing of three of the five Founder Presidents on the day of America’s declared Independence. And, save for just six days, it could have been four. Actually, I suppose, it wouldn’t be a stretch to really say it was four. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Must Put the Courts in Their Place

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The other day, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made a couple of great points regarding the recent supreme Court decisions.

It was regarding both the DACA non-decision and the census decision.

Neither of these “cases” should involve the courts at any level, much less the supreme Court.

I discuss why both should be decided by only the Executive branch, with no inputs from the courts, and little, if any input from even the Legislative branch. read more

A Visit to the Che Café

Be Cool and Ignorant just like Che-Z

Last week Will Witt for Prager University took a mike and camera to the University of California at San Diego, where he found himself at the Che Café.

Yes, the Che Café is a woke coffee shop, vegan restaurant and hang-out for the cool, hip and proletariat. Trump supporters are NOT welcome. Shocking!

And it’s full of students who are completely clueless about the deeds and beliefs of the Café’s namesake, one Che Guevara. Not a single student Will interviewed had any idea of what an unrepentant monster Che was.

So, before the video, let me just highlight some of Che Guevara’s brightest moments.

To see supposedly enlightened college students, especially black college students, walking around with Che’s face emblazoned on a t-shirt, is the height of stupidity. read more

Reparations – Who Pays and Who Gets?

from Walter Williams at Townhall:

Reparations for Slavery

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for Americans to make reparations for slavery. On June 19, the House judiciary subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties held a hearing. Its stated purpose was “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.” read more
