The new mayor of Baltimore — one of America's most dangerous cities — wants rival factions to put down their guns and put up their dukes. During a Sunday speech at an anti-gun violence rally, Mayor Bernard "Jack" Young — who took office after Catherine Pugh resigned in May amid scandal — advocated organized fights as a means to solve disputes without using weapons.

Comments:

If he's actually considering this hare-brained idea, why not try Thuderdome from Mad Max! These criminals aren't looking to 'settle' anything, they want to see their rivals dead. So stick em in a cage with some clubs, chansaws, etc., and let them go at it, Two men enter! One man leaves!

What a stupid suggestion. So many of the shootings have nothing to do with anger towards one particular individual, in fact many of them are close to random. This guy may have good intentions, but he is actually an idiot.

I guess acting like a responsible human being- trying hard in school, getting a job, avoiding drugs, being nice to one another- was not an option.

How about this Mr. Democrat Mayor. Implement a "No Broken Windows Policy" and turn the police loose to do their job, instead of making a stupid statement like you did. You are no more fit to govern than the previous two mayors.

Re-purpose the laser tag park, for use with live ammo. At least then the carnage can be concentrated in one ares. Each A.M. the losers can be tranported to the Morgue, and the area hosed down for the next day's shoot 'em up. /s

The mayor knows the truth. At the heart of the violence, drug dealing and preserving drug sales territory are causing the shootings. A street level drug pusher with a good territory can earn a 6 figure tax free income, and his baby momma reaps part of the benefits of that if she is a compliant momma. She will have her nice clothes, tats, tips, hair extensions, decent car, all while collecting full welfare benefits. Also she will have her recreational drugs and booze, expensive cell phones, and the like.. But until we face that reality, Baltimore and other mostly minority cities will continue to die, and we white folks will avoid such an environment wherever and whenever possible.

The Mueller, redactions and all, is out. The conclusion is no collusion or something like that. Nevertheless, there is a still a man out there who claims that collusion did happen. His name is Representative Adam Schiff or "The Media’s Pin-Up Doll" as Julie Kidd calls him: An original architect of the Trump-Russia collusion fable since the summer of 2016, Schiff shamelessly continues to lie to the American public with claims that the president and his team conspired with the Kremlin to win the presidential election.

After a major flap for driving Amazon out of New York City, something even socialist Mayor Bill de Blasio blamed her for, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is targeting another New York City business - the New York Post. She´s joining hands with a leftist newsstand seller group calling on all newsstand owners to quit selling the paper because she didn´t like its cover story reminding New Yorkers that her congressional gal pal, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was trivializing the worst terrorist attack on American soil -- which triggered its greatest damage in New York.

Ryan Sharp, 33, of the Illawarra region, and his 31-year-old partner allegedly stalked and harassed a couple for six weeks following the altercation at the fast-food joint. The couple had allegedly beeped at the man’s partner at the drive-thru after she swerved close to their vehicle. Sharp was not present at the time of the incident, but the woman reported the couple to police and wrote down their license plate number.

Burrito lovers beware. Chipotle (CMG) could raise prices for its burritos if President Donald Trump follows through with his threat to impose tariffs on products from Mexico next week. Trump said last week he would implement a 5% tariff on all goods and imports from Mexico beginning June 10 unless “the illegal migration crisis is alleviated.” The proposed tariffs, which could raise the prices consumers pay for imports including tequila, beer and avocados, could increase to 25% in the coming months. “If the tariffs become permanent, we would look to offset these costs through other margin improvement efforts already underway,”

Everyone not lying to themselves predicted when the federal government under Bill Clinton – aided and abetted by Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities and World Relief Minnesota -- plopped 30,000 Somalis down into the midst of the kind, virtue-signaling, eager-to-help Midwesterners of Minneapolis (of which I am one) that it would lead to some grave consequences for our community.Now, due to continuing refugee placements as well as chain migration there are an estimated 80,000 Somalis living in the Twin Cities metro area, or more like 79,000 if you subtract those who’ve left the country to join terrorist organizations like ISIS.Anyhoo, here’s a week Minneapolitans had with their Somali neighbors

At what point does Fox News pull the plug when a featured talking head spouts a discredited conspiracy theory? Donna Brazile, who forever discredited herself as corrupt when she supplied debate questions in advance to her former boss, Hillary Clinton, and was fired by CNN for it, found a new home at Fox News as one of their “contributors” (people paid to be available a certain number of hours for on-air commentary). But in an appearance over the weekend, she made the argument that Hillary Clinton only lost because of Russian interference – a contention for which there is no evidence whatsoever: (hat tip: Daily Caller)

In a recent “off the record” conversation with Page Six’s Cindy Adams, Clinton sounded off on the sprawling field of Democrat presidential candidates. According to Adams, Clinton has “no good words for Sanders, writing that the Obama-era secretary of state believes “Anyone overtaking him in a district considered his, he’ll burn the place down.” Clinton has blamed her own election loss to President Trump on former President Barack Obama, fired FBI Director James Comey

Joe Biden is the Democratic frontrunner for president. The big money donors say so. The pollsters all say so. The 95 percent of the media outlets that are little more than a public relations arm of the Democratic Party say so, too. So where is he? It is a mystery. The former vice president has no other job. Nothing distracts him from getting out (Snip) According to Biden, the 2020 election is a battle for the soul of the nation. One would expect him to focus all his time and energy on the campaign.
