Poverty, Crime And Human Feces: The Worst Cities In America Are The Ones Being Run By Democrats

Is it just a coincidence that many of the greatest cities in America became poverty-infested hellholes once the Democrats took charge of things? Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Oakland and Memphis were all once great cities. But after an extended period of control by the Democratic Party, each one of them has become a festering crisis that never seems to end. I thought that I was going to do an article about Baltimore today, but it occurred to me that the exact same things that are happening in Baltimore are also happening in a multitude of other major cities, and the common theme among all of them is that the Democrats are in control. But even though this is the case, voters in those cities just keep choosing Democrats election after election anyway.

Let’s talk about crime first. According to the FBI, Baltimore had the highest murder rate in the entire country last year…

Baltimore had the worst homicide rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities last year and the second-highest violent crime rate overall, according to new data from the FBI.

The grim news was the latest reminder of the sustained cycle of violence that has gripped the city since 2015, when the annual number of homicides soared above 300 for three consecutive years after the unrest that followed Freddie Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody.

In fact, it was the highest murder rate that Baltimore had ever seen.

So who runs Baltimore?

Democrats.

But Baltimore is definitely not alone. When you start going down the list, you find a lot more major cities run by Democrats…

#2 Detroit – Run By Democrats

#3 Memphis – Run By Democrats

#4 Chicago – Run By Democrats

#5 Philadelphia – Run By Democrats

And this is certainly not just a recent phenomenon. According to a broader study of major cities, there is a very strong correlation between Democratic control and violent crime…

Using U.S. cities with a population over 100,000 and the most recent FBI statistics on violent crime, USA Today formulated a list of the top ten most dangerous cities in America. Of these ten, eight are currently run by Democratic mayors and city councils, and two are controlled by Independents. Of the past ten mayors of each of the three most violent cities in America — Birmingham, Detroit, and St. Louis — eight have been Democrats. All told, the three most violent cities in this country have been under nearly uninterrupted Democratic control for more than half a century.

So the moral of the story is this – if you want more violent crime, vote for the Democrats.

Not surprisingly, there is also a very strong correlation between Democratic control and poverty.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Democratic-controlled California actually has the highest poverty rate in the entire nation…

Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.

But aren’t Democrats supposed to be the ones that care about the poor?

Well, they certainly throw a lot of money at the problem, but all of that money does not appear to be helping. In fact, the Los Angeles Times has even admitted that California’s spending on anti-poverty programs “actually seems to have made it worse”…

It’s not as though California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty. Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause. Several state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200% above the poverty line receive benefits. California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.

The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse.

That is a stunning admission from the Los Angeles Times.

And poverty is not just at crisis levels in California.

It will probably not surprise you to learn that nine of the ten poorest cities in the United States are run by Democrats

Referencing data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, CBS News composed a list of the top ten most impoverished cities in the United States. The ubiquity of Democratic governance is heightened in this context, as nine out of the ten poorest cities are run by Democrats. Combining the past ten mayors of the three poorest cities — Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Detroit — there are twenty-three Democrats, three Socialists, two Independents, and two Republicans. In essence, the three most impoverished cities in America have seen more governance in the past 50 years by Socialists than by Republicans, and the ratio of Democratic governance to Republican governance is about 12:1.

Ouch.

And even the Democratic-controlled cities that are supposedly “thriving” economically are still dealing with squalor on an unprecedented scale.

For example, one investigation found 300 piles of human feces on the streets of downtown San Francisco. The following comes from NPR

San Francisco’s streets are so filthy that at least one infectious disease expert has compared the city to some of the dirtiest slums in the world.

The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city in February, finding giant mounds of trash and food on the majority of streets. At least 100 discarded needles and more than 300 piles of human feces were also found in downtown San Francisco, according to the report.

The Democratic Party is definitely not the answer, and the Republican Party often makes the mistake of trying to lean closer to the Democratic Party in order to try to win independent voters. But in the process, the GOP seems to have lost the values and principles that once made it so appealing to so many of us.

We need fresh thinking, and we desperately need to return to the values and principles that once made this nation so great. This is what I am proposing, and that is what so many other true conservatives across this land are fighting for.

If we keep doing what we have been doing, we are going to keep getting the same results.

If we want different results, we need real change, and that means getting rid of most of the people that are currently holding political office all across America.

A Record Number of Democratic Challengers Are Outraising Republican Opponents

(Bloomberg) Democrats are hoping a blue wave of support will carry them to victory in this fall’s elections. In the meantime, they’ve caught a green wave of cash—the torrent of money pouring into Democratic campaign coffers helped 73 House candidates outraise Republican incumbents and opponents in races for open seats in the second quarter, a Bloomberg analysis of Federal Election Commission data shows. The more candidates the Democrats can field with the means to run competitive races, the larger the potential blue wave could be, if, as most experts anticipate, a motivated anti-Trump electorate shows up to vote in November. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats to retake control of the House.

Watch this video compilation of Democrats absolutely losing their minds over Brett Kavanaugh

(Canada Free Press) It’s not even so much that the gap is so wide between the reality of Brett Kavanaugh and their apparent concept of him. Imagining this guy as the destroyer of rights and lives that these people believe him to be simply boggles the mind. He is so clearly not that, it’s hard not to laugh yourself silly watching these people get so worked up about him.

But no, it’s really not that, because that would presume they’re making any serious attempt whatsoever to get their brains around who Brett Kavanaugh really is. They’re obviously not. They never do.

All this is playacting. They’re responding to the choice of the Generic Trump Court Nominee. Who he is and what his real record might be are irrelevant. They were rehearsing all these histrionics as soon as the news of Anthony Kennedy’s retirement came down. No one Trump chose would have elicited a response one iota different from what you’re about to see, because this is the script and they all stick to it.

Ron Paul Warns That Republicans And Democrats In The Senate Are Teaming Up On A Massive “Gun Confiscation Scheme”

Former U.S. Representative Ron Paul says that his sources are telling him that moderate U.S. Senators such as Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham are teaming up with Democrats in the U.S. Senate to push through a horrifying “gun confiscation scheme”

A source inside the US Senate has reported that Republicans and Democrats are teaming up and using the recent tragedy in Texas as the impetus to push through a massive federal gun control bill.

In an email Tuesday night, former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul released an ominous statement claiming that a source they have in the Senate revealed Democrats are teaming up with Republicans to push through a massive gun control bill.

According to their source, as Paul explained, “Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are teaming up with Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to ram through one of the worst nationwide gun confiscation schemes ever devised.”

If you love the 2nd Amendment, please share this with as many people as you can so that we can rally support against this…

Wake Up! The Numbers Look Incredibly Good For The Democrats Leading Into The 2018 Midterm Elections

If we truly want to take our government back, we are going to have to fight harder than we have ever fought before. Right now I am seeing so much apathy among Republicans, and that deeply alarms me, because if the 2018 midterm elections were held right now the Democrats would probably take back control of the House and it would be a really close call in the Senate. Conservatives all over the United States need to wake up immediately, because we only have a handful of months to get this thing turned around. In 2016, we gave Republicans control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, and this represented a once in a generation opportunity to fundamentally transform the federal government. Instead, the Republican-controlled Congress has accomplished next to nothing, and the American people are deeply frustrated.

According to Real Clear Politics, Congress currently has an average approval rating of just 14.3 percent and an average disapproval rating of 73.5 percent. Those are absolutely disastrous numbers, and they tell me that we better get our act together or 2018 is going to be a major disaster.

If we didn’t get it after the disastrous election results in New Jersey and Virginia in November, then the debacle in Alabama really should have shaken us up. All over the nation Democrats are raising more money, they have more enthusiasm, and they have more momentum. And a brand new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll that was just released had incredibly bad news for Republicans

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released on Sunday found that 50% of people said they want Democrats to lead Congress after the 2018 midterm elections, compared to 39% who said they hoped Republicans would retain congressional control.

According to the Journal, the survey result represents a 4-point increase from a similar survey taken in October, and it is the first double-digit advantage for the party since shortly before the 2008 presidential election that resulted in a Democratic super-majority in the Senate, and control of both congressional chambers.

Of course it is easy to dismiss a single poll, but other polls have come up with similar results.

Here is one example

A Monmouth University survey released on Wednesday — conducted by telephone, and with a plus-or-minus 3.5% margin of error— found that 51% of registered voters said they would vote for or lean toward a Democratic candidate if the 2018 elections were held today, compared to just 36% who said they would vote or lean Republican.

Is this dramatic shift in the numbers happening because the American people have suddenly fallen in love with the Democratic Party?

Of course not.

In fact, a recent CNN poll showed that only 37 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the Democratic Party at this point…

Favorable views of the Democratic Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than a quarter century of polling, according to new numbers from a CNN poll conducted by SSRS.

Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992.

What this means is that we can still win in 2018, but we have got to get our act together. We have the best message and the best candidates, but we have got to be willing to make sacrifices and put in the hard work that is necessary.

Look, the first primaries for the 2018 midterm elections are just a few months away. There are good pro-Trump candidates running all over the nation, and I have been appalled to see how little support they are receiving. Things are looking incredibly promising for my race here in Idaho, but we need a whole lot more than just one pro-Trump conservative in Congress.

If you are pro-Trump, now is the time to take action. If we allow establishment Republicans to defeat pro-Trump candidates all over the country in the upcoming primaries, we won’t even have anyone decent to vote for by the time November 2018 rolls around.

I understand that people are not accustomed to thinking about politics this time of the year, but the only way that we are going to win in 2018 is if we put in the hard work right now. If we sit back and do nothing, we will end up with the government that we deserve.

There are still races all over America where pro-Trump challengers are needed. It is still not too late to jump in, and if there is not a pro-Trump candidate running for Congress where you live, perhaps you should consider making the leap.

Of course most people cannot afford to spend the time, effort, energy and money that it takes to run for Congress, but everyone can be involved in some way.

If you have extra time, you can volunteer to be part of a campaign in your local area. Others are extremely busy with work but can make a contribution to help get the message out. And even if you are confined to your home all day, you can still help promote good candidates on social media.

If you stand with President Trump, you need to get involved in the 2018 mid-term elections. If we aren’t going to fight for what we believe, we might as well hand Democrats control of everything right now. Because I will tell you that they are far more energized than Republicans right now. They are determined to take Congress back, they are having absolutely no problem recruiting candidates, and those candidates are having no problem raising money and recruiting volunteers.

In 2018, pro-Trump forces will not be able to say that there were not good people to vote for. And many of us will actually win if you will just get behind us.

The presidency of Donald Trump is potentially the last chance in this generation to take our government back. If we blow this opportunity, we might not ever have another one in our entire lifetimes.

This is a call to action that I hope is read by every conservative from the very top to the very bottom all across this nation. We literally have four or five months to turn this thing around, and the clock is ticking.

We can still win in 2018, but we need everyone to wake up right now and start getting engaged.

The future of this nation is literally hanging by a thread, and we desperately need your help. Please join the battle, because it is going to take a total team effort in order to win.

Ann Coulter Is Exactly Right: Every Time Republicans Compromise On Immigration They Get Nothing In Return

When are Republicans going to learn?  In her most recent article, Ann Coulter pointed out that every time Republicans compromise on immigration it turns out to be a total disaster.  If you go back all the way to 1986, the Republicans never got the employer sanctions that they were promised even after the Democrats were given amnesty for four million illegal immigrants.  And every time Republicans have attempted to push amnesty since that time, it has been a disaster for Republican politicians at the polls.

This time around, we are told that we are supposed to compromise on DACA.

Okay, will we get to build a wall in return?

Of course not.

Will our concerns about lightly vetted refugees coming in from hotbeds of Islamic terror be addressed?

Of course not.

In return for compromising on DACA, the Democrats wants to make some nice sounding promises that won’t be too politically damaging that they will be able to easily break in the future.

This has happened time after time, and yet Republicans never seem to get it.  But Ann Coulter sure does

Congress has passed laws requiring that immigrants pay back taxes, learn English, not collect welfare and have good moral character. That’s not too onerous, right? It’s not like we’re requiring them to have any skills or talents that would be valuable to America.

Every single one of these requirements has been scuttled by immigration bureaucrats, federal judges and Democratic presidents. All of ’em. Our immigration bureaucracy is so dedicated to destroying America that it’s made citizens of thousands of convicted felons.

Look, I am certainly not against immigrants.  In fact, I have a great love for those that have risked everything to come here for a better life.

I have great-grandparents on both my mother’s side and my father’s side that were immigrants to this country.

And it is also important to note that Donald Trump’s wife is an immigrant.

This nation was built by immigrants, and we should never forget that.  But the point is that they came in legally.

We need a system that requires that everyone comes in through the front door.  There is nothing unreasonable about that.  But instead our system of legal immigration is a complete and utter nightmare, and meanwhile we are leaving the back door completely wide open.

One of the big reasons why Democrats want more illegal immigration is because they believe that in the long-term it will end up producing more Democratic voters.

And of course many Democrats are also big-time globalists, and the globalists want a world where national borders will eventually become essentially meaningless.

That is why they may talk about “border security” during campaign season but they will never, ever agree to build a wall.  Here is more from Ann Coulter

Every politician swears up and down that he wants a “secure border.” But then these same politicians go absolutely berserk when Trump says he wants to build a wall.

They say we’ll get enforcement right after the amnesty. That’s obviously absurd. When the tub is overflowing, water pouring out of the faucet, across the carpets, down the stairs, up the dining room walls, we don’t debate whether we’re going to dry clean the curtains or throw them out. We don’t argue about whether to use a mop or towels. FIRST: Turn off the water.

It is no longer good enough for politicians to promise us “more border security”.  If someone running for Congress will not specifically commit to building a border wall, do not vote for that individual.

Tens of millions of people have come into this country illegally over the decades, and we need a way to make sure that everyone comes in through the front door from now on.  If something other than a border wall can accomplish that, I would love to hear that proposal.

This is not a crisis that we can put off for another day.  Just consider what has been happening down in Texas.  The following comes from an article that I published in 2015

Today, the number of people that enter Texas illegally is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state. And those illegal immigrants commit a lot of crime. According to Texas state Senator Dan Patrick, illegal immigrants were charged with nearly half a million crimes in his state during one recent four year time period. And he says that there are “at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members” living inside the state of Texas right now…

If I get elected to Congress, I am going to work with President Trump to build a border wall and to greatly secure our borders, and I hope that you will join me in this effort.  As President Trump has said, a nation that doesn’t have borders isn’t really a nation at all.  Either we have a country or we don’t.  Like Trump, I am going to fight the agenda of the globalists every step of the way, and we need to work very hard to vote out all of the globalists that are currently representing us in Congress.

They want to label us as “heartless” for being opposed to illegal immigration, but of course that is not the case at all.

In the end, we just want all immigration to be done legally, and if we can get that accomplished that will be good for everybody.

‘Leftist Fight Club’ trains students to fight Republicans

The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF) held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.

“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis, Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.”
