Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler reportedly backed down from his request the police bureau be given $2 million in emergency funds and instead voted with city commissioners to spend $6 million on grants to community groups and also hire 24 park rangers. “The deal gives police no money but calls for the Portland Police Bureau to assemble a new gun violence team to replace the one eliminated last June, when the city defunded its police by $15 million in the midst of nightly social justice protests,” Fox News reported Friday. The group will be known as the Focus Intervention Team (FIT) and have civilian oversight, the article read.


Unarmed Park Rangers, otherwise known to BLM as target practice.

Well, Skippy, you may be authorized “to [TRY TO] hire 24 park rangers.” But we’ll want an update in a month to let us know how the hiring (and training) process is going. Moron.

A democrat has one successful talent, he can find a more expensive solution that is much less effective and leans toward the side of idiotic. Not for five grand a week would I stand there unarmed and dodge flying bricks. Wheeler is a dunce.

This is a grossly incompetent unserious attempt to address a debacle that the Mayor created. Portland has been taken over by domestic terrorists. Everyone else needs to either leave, learn to live with it, or get their heads out of their collective behinds and eliminate their current leadership. The rest of the country has ceased to care.

Very simple solution - - The next time BLM and antifa start violent riots - - send in a team of Associate Professors of Political Science - - then watch BLM and antifa run screaming out of town. Make the faculty lounge the wellspring of tough law and order.

Using Park Rangers makes perfect sense, because municipal governments consider black street criminals and homeless lunatics to be indigenous wildlife that must be managed and protected through tag-and-release programs.

Now there's a great idea. We need to pick the democrat's brain more often. Just like Joe...reverse Trump's immigration policy, things will be better. Nancy said that Trump really screwed up the border, so Joe's in the process of fixing it. And here I thought all democrats had at least one screw loose. Oh well.

I checked to see what their union had to say about this nutty idea. It says Portland will have to supply unarmed park rangers with body armor to protect them against stabbings and shootings as they "patrol" Portland's city parks. According to the city commissioners, this is the way to keep Portland's parks "welcoming." With no weapons and no authority, the job of the park rangers will be to act as "goodwill ambassadors" and to call 911. To say the plan sounds like it came straight out of the movie "Idiocracy" is correct!

There will be blood, and as a retired FBI friend said to me about this plan Friday at dinner "What kind of a fool would go into that stuff unarmed?" What kind of fool? Indeed. If they can find an initial batch of cannon fodder to feed into this violent mess, they won't be able to hire a second batch after the first batch is chewed up and spit out. My comment to my friend was that hundreds of years of working on solutions to the problem of violent, armed lawbreakers has shown us that we must have armed, capable law enforcement to oppose them. Back to the paradigm of the old western town. The town needs a sheriff, and a couple of park rangers won't be it. Although, about half of the last real park rangers I saw in Yellowstone were armed. People might not be aware that a ranger in Yellowstone could easily be 25-35 miles over very twisty roads, so perhaps 45 minutes to an hour or so from backup.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is unsure why Texas and Florida continues to defy the settled “science” on COVID-19. Since the states did away with the mask mandates and authorized all businesses to re-open, there has not been a disproportionate surge in COVID cases, hospitalizations, or deaths. Dr. Fauci was asked why Texas hasn’t seen the often predicted surge on MSNBC this week. “I’m not really quite sure,” he said. “It could be they’re doing things outdoors.” Fauci added in his MSNBC interview that it may take weeks to see any effects from re-opening the state on the number of COVID cases.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) Wednesday signed an executive order to “mitigate the impact” of Georgia’s new election integrity law, known as The Election Integrity Act of 2021. The new election bill that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into law “… seeks to tighten up elections and reduce fraud by enforcing conformity across the state, amping up voter ID, restricting drop boxes, and expanding in-person voting, among additional election-related overhauls,” The Daily Wire previously reported. Although Georgia has received widespread criticism from a number of corporations, Kemp said he was moving forward with his decision to sign the bill into law.

The woman was reportedly in the drive-thru line when she exited her car, approached the window, then began arguing with an employee. Memphis police detailed the events in a Facebook post on Friday, along with photos of the suspect who appeared to be wearing a blue jacket with a red hood:

As we learned Friday, it doesn’t seem that the two teenage girls who carjacked Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar will face harsh punishment for their crimes, even though the older girl could probably be charged as an adult and the younger girl is a suspect in a January 2021 carjacking. One would expect equivocation coming from Mayor Muriel Bowser, SJW city council members, or perhaps woke prosecutors — but not from the D.C. Chief of Police, whose officers filed charges of felony murder and armed carjacking with a taser against the girls. Sadly, Acting D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee III had some harsh and uncaring answers to questions

State Democrats want to limit the number of miles Minnesotans can drive, according to a new bill making its way through the Legislature. The “Sustainable Transportation Act” would require Minnesota to adopt a goal of reducing vehicle miles traveled by “at least 20% by 2050.” Rep. Frank Hornstein, DFL- Minneapolis, said a reduction in vehicle miles traveled, or VMT, is needed “if we are going to make headway in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector.” “Transportation is now the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and we’ve had the least amount of reduction in the transportation sector,” Hornstein said during a Thursday hearing on his bill.

The focus of President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure bill is allegedly to address aging infrastructure across the country, but the massive bill covers a vast amount of other spending, including money for “diversifying” neighborhoods.

According to the White House Fact Sheet, the housing effort is “an innovative new approach to eliminate state and local exclusionary zoning laws, which drive up the cost of construction and keep families from moving to neighborhoods with more opportunities

Joe Biden may have been something like a moderate, once. As a senator, he defended the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life taxpayers from footing the bill for something they consider to be murder. Senator Biden also voted for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993. Even as late as 2003, Biden voted for a bill to prohibit partial-birth and late-term abortion. Biden did indeed work with Republicans to pass legislation. In 1987, Biden condemned Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s scheme to pack the Supreme Court to support the New Deal. Alas, that Joe Biden is nowhere to be found in the White House.

Gavin Newsom.” Regan could, for example, require automakers to sell cars that
