The launch of a new federal effort to combat gun violence across the country brought Attorney General Merrick Garland back to his native Chicago, where he called gun violence an ongoing tragedy Thursday and said, “I feel it particularly in my home town.”Garland’s first official visit as attorney general to Chicago came in the wake of three mass shootings in a single day. One of them took place just down the street from St. Agatha Catholic Church, where Garland met with community members Thursday and talked briefly with reporters.Shortly before Garland arrived at the church, a police chase erupted outside.

We all know it is not the guns. It is the immoral evil person who is shooting the gun. And then you have the scum in the justice system who keeps letting the immoral evil people out of custody to do it all over again. It's not that hard to figure out.

Well, Judy, maybe you should think about enforcing EXISTING gun laws. While you're at it, look at the policies of the mayor of your "native Chicago." S***cago.

I've offered this before but if Mr. Garland believes what he speaks then lead by putting a sign in his yard declaring "there are no guns in this house".

No such a thing as "gun violence ". I have a substantial number of them, and they have never once done any violence. I've killed a number of animals with some of them, but they never did a thing on their own.

The root cause is democrats, who encourage and allow lawlessness and not going after gangs because it considered "racial profiling" or other nonsense like that.

How brave of Garland to visit Chicago. Even Smidgen didn't want to visit the old bathhouse scene where he built his reputation. He might have run into somebody that he once "knew" in the Biblical sense.

This urban crime wave is the direct result of the welfare lenience of the 70s and 80s. Remember the welfare queens and their multitude of profitable offspring? Those little children weren’t wanted by Anyone and raised themselves on the streets. Now they’re 30 and 40 year old men who were never wanted and still aren’t wanted and are to this day little boys acting out for attention and love. Except, they are in actuality grown feral thugs who are lost and dangerous and an absolute menace to society. Now, that’s enough psychoanalyzing on my part, I don’t have the education to do it anyway. Except I remember what my eyes have seen and the “have children for profit”was real no matter how much the activists hate the word “welfare queen”.

The problem isn’t gun violence, it’s criminals. These progressive fascists can’t address the real problem because they pander to blacks who commit the vast majority of these crimes.

A veteran police officer and the spokesperson for the National Police Association has slammed the left for suggesting that the suicides of four cops who responded to the Capitol riot were a direct result of it, telling we will 'never know' why they took their own lives so shouldn't assume the reason to suit political bias. Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith was a suburban police officer in Chicago for 29 years. She is now the spokesperson for the National Police Association, a lobbying group and charity which acts on behalf of police officers at every rank around the country.

When it comes to the swamp that has become D.C., nothing should surprise anyone anymore, especially when it comes to officials within the government using resources to personally enrich themselves or failing to disclose when their families stand to benefit from their governmental “service.” While the Left was consistently worried about Trump and his family using the Presidency to enrich themselves, they seem much less concerned about Hunter Biden’s travels on the American taxpayer dime to peddle his father’s influence – or by his current career/money-laundering scheme as an “artist.”

On Thursday afternoon, the White House press corps kept up what’s come off as a collusion effort with the Biden administration to malign Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) (and fellow Governor Greg Abbott of Texas) for his refusal to open the door to new Covid restrictions and lockdowns. Meanwhile, Fox’s Peter Doocy did his own thing in asking real questions of Press Secretary Jen Psaki with Thursday’s installment focusing on the viral comments from Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO) about defunding the police and Team Biden keeping out vaccinated foreigners while allowing unvaccinated illegal immigrants to flood the southern border.

President Joe Biden suggested the violence of the January 6th riot on Capitol Hill was worse than the Civil War during a speech Thursday at the White House. “Not even during the Civil War did insurrectionists breach the Capitol of the United States of America, the citadel of our democracy,” Biden began. “Not even then. But on January the 6th, 2021, they did.” The president hosted a signing ceremony Thursday for a bill awarding Capitol Police officers a Congressional Gold Medal for their response to the January 6th riots, giving Biden an opportunity to excoriate supporters of the former president

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is absolutely right in calling out President Joe Biden’s COVID hypocrisy: The president is blaming the surge in cases partly on DeSantis and other GOP governors who resist tighter restrictions — even as Biden lets thousands of COVID-positive migrants flood the nation. Biden is “lecturing people about imposing COVID restrictions and lockdowns and not only doing nothing to stop the border surge but actually facilitating it,” notes the Floridian. He’s “bringing in people from over 100 different countries across the southern border.”

Reuters reported on Monday that Anthony Fauci has made a declaration: Enough Americans have now been vaccinated to avoid lockdowns. Fauci made his pronouncement on ABC’s “This Week.”But who with even a modest faculty for critical thinking believes Anthony Fauci? That’s Anthony Fauci, MD, who famously told us that masks don’t work, and then told us, by God, wearing them is imperative. Fauci, a flip-flopper? Perish the thought. So, make no mistake, if Fauci, a decades-long D.C. player, says that lockdowns are off the table, they’re on the table -- at the White House and among congressional Democrats.

As the Biden administration continues to peel away the accomplishments of his predecessor, what I hear most from family, friends, and social media posters is a fear that Democrats have become power-mad with their recent ascendancy to a majority position in the House and Senate. They wonder if the current crop of radical officials is hell-bent on weakening, and ultimately destroying, the country that gave them those positions. Beginning with reversing President Trump's southern border policies, which has led to an invasion of illegal aliens unprecedented in our history, to the shutdown of the Keystone pipeline

In eight years, half of American car buyers will be forced to purchase overpriced, underperforming electric cars they don’t want, courtesy of the federal government and a compliant auto industry. That, at least, is what President Joe Biden announced at the White House on Thursday, and it’s just as we predicted in this space three months ago. With a wave of his pen, Biden ordered that 50% of new cars and trucks sold by 2030 are to be electric. Since the auto companies already have their 2022 model year cars in production, that means they have less than eight years

It’s cheap, easy, and lots of fun to highlight Joe Biden’s incoherence and creepiness. Heck, he displays it constantly. Just yesterday, he sniffed a little girl’s hair and made an utterly incomprehensible speech likening police to brawling high school athletes. However, Don Surber, one of the most acute political observers suggests that Biden may be hiding a still-sharp brain behind that decrepit, incoherent exterior. I put it to you, the readers, to make the call. On Thursday, Twitter wasn’t able to stop “Creepy Joe” from trending. The reason was that he was once again caught snuffling at a little girl under the pretext of whispering something to her:

The gun manufacturers are accused of negligent business practices that facilitate smuggling guns to Mexico and cause “massive damage” to the country. The lawsuit alleges that they knowingly supply the criminal gun market in Mexico in particular, saying the companies’ military-style guns often

White Coat Waste Project, the government watchdog group that obtained the documents, found that about half of Fauci’s $6 billion budget was used for animal experimentation, including the abusive dog experiment.

'Have you guys driven an electric vehicle?' the president asked a group of reporters after he completed his circuit. 'You don’t hear a thing,' he said. Clearly in his element, Biden jumped out of the gray jeep and fielded several questions from the press.Asked by about language in the new infrastructure bipartisan bill about mandatory breathalyzer technology for cars, Biden backed the idea.
