Some may blame video games, others the music. Some may lay the problem at the feet of years of progressive education and politics, while still others point to the prevalence of social media. Some will point out that the nuclear family has been atomized over the ages through sexual liberation, federal intervention, and feminism. Others will look to conservatives who dithered about taxes while the country rotted from the inside. More than likely, it was all of the above that contributed to the chaos that reigns in the United States. To a certain degree, cops have always faced a certain level of animus.

If things continue to evolve according to plan, we could become another South Africa - where, I believe, over 50% of the people are on welfare and the structures needed to make a country run are collapsing - like the grid.

This is nothing new. My husband was a firefighter from 1976-2004. There were certain areas of the city that the chief told them not to get off their rigs without an ax or something. It’s been going on forever.

Again: The usual suspects, but no mention of race. What is the real background here. Why was this crowd so angered at the accident victims that they refused to let Firefighters help them? Why was there a crowd there at 3 AM. Was this over flow from some bar, were they drunk? There has to be a background story we arent hearing yet.

Perhaps firefighters should take a page out of the retail industry, and just leave because they can't work under the conditions in the neighborhood.

"Problem Zones" are known to this who must live/work/service them. In those places, the time is now to place "overwatch" on duty. Armed with lethal weapons, no more tolerance of what should be treated as intolerable.

Sorry, it's the dimokkrap party that benefits from and uses violence for political and monetary gain. It's the Dimokkkrap party that seeds grievance instead of the pursuit of happiness. Obumbum was a grievance agitation politician. The phenomenon of so called "southern racism" was established as an institution by the Dims - using jim crow laws and the KKK terror group- in order to regain and preserve political power. Now they are attempting to arrest their political opponents. And they are importing Arab grievance and fueling them (not much fuel needed). I wasn't here for the big influxes in the 1800s and early 1900s, but I wonder what the national politic was like then.

Firemen are all equipped with powerful hoses, fire axes and other means of controlling a crowd, use them. Our African "teens" have been conditioned to believe that they can get away with anything and our weak law enforcement techniques prove them right. At every accident lately, it seems that there is an entire parade of fire engines, ambulances and police cars. Send the cops out with SWAT gear to the trouble spots, AKA African neighborhoods, and do whatever it takes to ward off attacks. #1 and #2 are right on the money. We pay the cops to enforce the law and we are getting almost nothing from them thanks to progressive policies.

Again it does not appear that any so-called MAGA extremists who love Trump were involved, so you have to figure that the chances are that Biden and his crew will shy away from commenting on this incident other than mumbling something about an obviously racist fire department.

I wish to point out that cops faced "animosity" in direct proportion to their deviation from their stated objective of "protection". Police who protected were beloved heroes. Police who steal, bully, or moonlight for criminal organizations are despised and hated. Police have, in recent decades been taught to bully, harass and intimidate their employers - us! The cops that go along with that training are criminals. The ones that don't either leave the force or are betrayed and killed by their supposed comrades.

And the chaos has one small minority group at it's core, doing 75-80% of all violent crime, and doing almost all the general mayhem, thievery, muggings, shoplifting in all the big cities. Feral humans belong in cages for life. We really do need to bring back "three strikes". So many of them need a lifetime behind bars to protect the rest of us from them. And no whining about "racism" or "too many people in prison". People go to prison because they CHOOSE TO break laws endlessly, so they choose to be in prison. If we have to build 10 more prisons per state, if that's what it takes to be safe in public, in our homes.....DO IT.

The suv was travelling at a very high rate of speed, and apparently not from seven mile, but rather from the parking lot behind the E 7 mile apt complex, went through the 8ft, barb wire topped fence around it, and attempted to pass between the Konex containers(that have been there for years) and the discount furniture store, it is resting on the sidewalk in front of the strip mall, about 80ft from the road. I guess it is possible that the impact spun the car 180, in which case the driver was travelling very fast through the long parking lot and trying to get between the building and contractor boxes into the apt complex. (it is right across the street from a large U-haul rental/storage that a company I once worked for rented trucks from when we were cleaning out and scrapping materials from closed auto parts plants) I'm gonna guess that they will find bullet holes in the vehicle and/or weapons/shell casings inside of it.

Charles McGonigal, the disgraced former FBI official who also helped to launch the Trump collusion probe, is headed to prison. The man who pleaded guilty to conspiracy and to concealing foreign contacts and bribes will be spending over four years in a federal prison. McGonigal had been working with a Russian oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, who is also known as "Putin's henchman." During the sentencing, McGonigal admitted that his actions have caused him "extreme mental, emotional, and physical pain," but still asked for a second chance from the judge in the case.

Vandaelle drew the ire of unvaccinated Canadians after he advocated for vaccine mandates during the Covid-19 pandemic, advocating for both the “carrot” and the “stick” approach. “Incentivize getting the vaccine however we like … and require vaccination to do … non-essential things.

The White House admitted on Wednesday that President Joe Biden was “familiar” with his son’s plans to violate a congressional subpoena issued by House Republicans. The moment came during a White House press conference when Fox News’ Peter Ducey asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Hunter’s refusal to abide by House Republicans’ subpoena. By subpoenaing the younger Biden, House Republicans sought to compel him to sit for a closed-door deposition hearing where they could dig into Joe’s leading role in the Biden family’s foreign business ventures. When asked about Hunter’s refusal to testify in the Republicans’ sought-after deposition, Jean-Pierre admitted that Joe was “familiar” with what his son would say

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how The Drudge Report—or whoever is running it now—began boycotting PJ Media the minute it was announced that we had become part of the Salem/Townhall Media family in 2019. Not only did he/they/whatever remove us from the blog roll, where we had been listed for as long as I can remember, but we stopped getting Drudge links. For a site like PJ Media that exists on razor-thin margins— thanks to Big Tech censorship and a major collapse in digital ad revenues—being cut off from one of the largest media aggregators in the world was a gut punch.

Nihilism is the religion of the Left. Anarchy is now at the core of the new Democratic Party. If the Left wished radically to alter the demography of the U.S., it could have expanded legal immigration through legislation or the courts. Instead, it simply erased the border and dynamited federal immigration law. By fiat, nihilists ended the wall, and stopped detaining and deporting illegal aliens altogether. Or was it worse than that when candidate Joe Biden in September 2019 urged would-be illegal aliens to "surge" the border? As a result, through laxity and entitlement incentives, eight million illegal entrants have swarmed the southern border under the Biden administration. They are swamping border towns, bankrupting

Since the written word is the worst way to convey sarcasm, let me start off by saying parts of this column will be dripping with it. If you can’t spot those sections and think I’ve suddenly become a mentally deranged leftist, I can’t help you. The Biden family is not corrupt. You can tell this by how they insist they are not corrupt while not addressing any of the evidence amassed by Republicans (since the media isn’t doing even the basics of their job by looking into it), rather simply declaring themselves to be innocent. Innocent people always martyr themselves without proving anything, that’s just science. Of course, I’m joking.

Few tests at Harvard University, I’d presume, are what anyone would deem as easy. But when it came to the easiest one of all, Harvard flunked in spectacular fashion. The only reason Claudine Gay isn't being called “the former president of Harvard” today is because the university decided to not fire her, despite overwhelming pressure to do so after she waffled about the right of anti-Israel protesters to call for the genocide of Jews on campus. And she did so under oath on Capitol Hill, no less. "At Harvard, does calling for the genocide of Jews violate Harvard's rules of bullying and harassment?" Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) asked

Before we get to this direct rejection of the Biden/Blinken ‘credit’ argument, let’s go over the background that led to it. Under pressure from progressive anti-Semites in his party, Joe Biden growled yesterday about Israel’s supposedly “indiscriminate” bombing campaign in Gaza. His comments at a campaign event yesterday sent shock waves through the US media: “Israel’s security can rest on the United States,” Biden stated during a campaign event Tuesday, as he touted his government’s strong support of Israel. … “But they’re starting to lose that support by the indiscriminate bombing that takes place” in Gaza, Biden said, in a statement that implied Israel was needlessly targeting civilians.

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that Israel is losing support over its "indiscriminate" bombing of Gaza and that Benjamin Netanyahu should change, exposing a new rift in relations with the Israeli prime minister. Biden's remarks, made to donors to his 2024 re-election campaign, were his most critical to date of Netanyahu's handling of Israel's war in Gaza. They are a stark contrast to his literal and political embrace of the Israeli leader days after Hamas militants' Oct. 7 attack on southern Israel.

Should these be detained as POWs and treated tolerantly, as specified by the Geneva Conventions of 1949? A second question on which the answer to the first depends entails the professional nature and capacity of the captives, that is, are they indeed “soldiers “as understood by the term — members of a nation’s armed services that conduct military operations? Are they members of a resistance “army” who continue to abide by the rules of war, treating captives humanely,

Hunter Biden has told friends that he might have to flee the country if Donald Trump is reelected, after already enduring months of deeply personal political attacks and mounting legal woes. Republicans have put him front and center of their efforts to say his father acted corruptly when he was vice president. And he could face almost 20 years in prison if convicted of three felony and six misdemeanor charges brought last week. The result is an 81-year-old father desperately worried about the welfare of a son who has battled drink and drugs, and a son who fears more attacks if Trump wins in 2024.

The Senate has pushed off its holiday recess to work on a border security and foreign aid package in what could be a breakthrough on immigration policy - that has not been dealt with by Congress in decades. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the talks had made 'good progress' on Thursday on a package that would include money for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan and would bolster border security measures in exchange. One idea under consideration is to allow Homeland Security officials to stop migrants from applying for asylum at the southern border if the total number of crossings on a day exceeds 5,000.
