George Soros’ allies are about to force this essential business out of blue states

Democrats have long lamented the “food deserts” in poor urban areas. 

But now their unhinged policies are wreaking havoc on entire metro areas. 

And George Soros’ allies are about to force this essential business out of blue states.

Leftist billionaire George Soros has spent years, and a fortune, funding a complete overhaul of the United States’ justice system—and the ripple effect from that agenda’s implementation could be devastating for numerous communities.

According to political watchers, Soros’ “criminal justice reform” efforts to implement his agenda have been wildly successful. 

George Soros has quietly orchestrated the dark money political equivalent of ‘shock and awe,’ on local attorney races through the country, shattering records, flipping races and essentially making a mockery of our entire campaign finance system,” said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the National Legal and Policy Center in Virginia told the New York Post back in December of 2021.

Fast forward a year and a half and the pro-crime policies that Soros’ foot soldiers have been implementing are wreaking havoc in blue state communities. 

Now one major grocery store chain is struggling to stay in business.  

Giant Foods has a total of 165 stores in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware—and is now locked in a survival battle as escalating theft and violence makes it increasingly difficult to do business in those areas. 

According to an article in the Washington Post, the grocery store chain has been forced to hire security guards, reduced the number of entrances/exits available to customers, hire security guards, and even put alarms on razor blade packages. 

10X crime increase at Giant 

At this point, company president Ira Kres told the news outlet the goal is merely to keep the stores open despite the skyrocketing crime rates. 

“The alternative is worse for customers,” Kress explained. “The last thing I want to do is close stores. But I’ve got to be able to run them safely and profitably.”

Criminal activity inside the stores has increased, he claimed by “tenfold in the last five years.”

And the retail industry veteran says fighting back against criminal elements has become more dangerous as well. 

“We used to chase shoplifters,” Kress said, “and you’d get the product back, and nobody would ever fight you. … I didn’t worry about somebody pulling a knife or gun on me [40] years ago,” he concluded.

Few chase shoplifters anymore

Now, with the rule of law being ignored by the people hired to enforce it across numerous jurisdictions, criminals know they can get away with almost anything. 

And average law-abiding Americans are just beginning to suffer from the ramifications of the Left’s refusal to maintain law and order.

Muriel Bowser is speechless after this child is arrested following an unthinkable crime spree

Washington D.C. attracts tourists from all around the world for its world-class museums and historic monuments. 

However, out of control violent crime has made working, living in or even visiting D.C. a major headache. 

But Muriel Bowser is speechless after this child is arrested following an unthinkable crime spree.

Crime is nothing new for Washington, DC, but the people committing these crimes is 

Although Washington D.C is home to many of America’s top security forces, the city is managed by radical Democrats who are destroying this iconic city. 

Out of control crime is a part of everyday life in Washington, D.C. which makes living, working or visiting the city nearly impossible. 

Crime has plagued Washington for quite some time, however the rise of children who are committing these crimes is appalling. 

Just last week, police arrested an 11 year old boy after he went on an armed robbery spree across the city. 

In three separate instances, the boy stole items ranging from bikes to cell phones, using a handgun to scare his victims. 

Fortunately, police were able to arrest the child before he hurt someone.

These robberies remind many Washington, D.C. residents of the robbery that occurred in 2021.

In that instance, two girls aged 13 and 15 car jacked an Uber driver, which resulted in his death. 

The rise in crimes perpetrated by young people are not unique to Washington DC.

Just last weekend, a group of unsupervised teens brutally attacked a group of marines after the marines asked them to stop lighting illegal fireworks. 

Parents are ultimately responsible for what their children are doing, and in most Democrat parts of America, parents clearly do not feel obligated to monitor their children. 

Pro-crime policies are teaching children the wrong thing in Democrat controlled parts of America 

Many of these young people committing awful crimes have been told their whole lives that they are not responsible for their actions. 

Refusing to hold individuals responsible for their actions is a cornerstone of the Democrat Party’s agenda, and it should come as no surprise that many Democrat-controlled cities are seeing youth act this way. 

Rather than reinforcing good behavior, and encouraging parents to be involved in the lives of their children, too many so-called activists and community leaders instead focus on attacking police officers and conservatives to shift blame away from destructive Democrat policies.

Disturbing video footage shows veterans forced to endure the unthinkable Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day designated to remember the brave men and women who have given their lives for this nation. 

However, too many Americans forget this as they light off fireworks, and grill up their food.

But this disturbing video footage shows veterans forced to endure the unthinkable Memorial Day.

Lawlessness and violence have consumed most American communities 

At one point, California served as a beacon for people all over the nation who were looking for a place to start businesses and families. 

Decades of Democrat control has completely soiled this, and nowadays nearly every town in California is corrupted with crime and poverty. 

However, the vicious attack perpetrated in San Clemente over Memorial Day weekend has people all over the nation on the edge of their seat. 

Last Friday evening, a group of three Marines were walking through a park in San Clemente after a long day on the base. 

However, the park was overrun with rowdy teens who were allegedly lighting off fireworks, which is illegal.

Fragments hit one of the Marines in the face, which prompted him to ask the teens to stop lighting off the illegal fireworks. 

Video footage shows one teen swinging at the back of one of the veterans’ heads.

When he turned around to confront the assailant, all hell broke loose.  

The group of teens savagely attacked the servicemen until they were sent into the fetal position.

Even when the Marines were curled up on the ground, the teens were seen kicking them. 

From the moment that this video appeared online outrage erupted.

Orange County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Frank Gonzalez spoke to KCAL, saying “This is considered an assault with a deadly weapon because of the amount of suspects we are investigating.”

He added “The weapons that were used were their feet while these victims were on the ground. So, regardless if the victims choose prosecution or choose medical attention, the sheriff’s department is going to investigate this to the fullest and try to determine who the suspects are.”

So far five juvenile suspects have been arrested in connection with this attack. 

If teen thugs will attack Marines on Memorial Day weekend then nobody is safe 

This brutal attack once again raises the questions of why parents are allowing their children to run wild without any supervision.

Last month, the city of Chicago made headlines after throngs of teens ran through the street committing similar crimes as these teens in San Clemente. 

However the nature of this crime, especially given that it happened over Memorial Day weekend, is gaining national attention.

Attacks like these are nothing new in California, and street takeovers and things of the sort are now a part of daily life. 

Many cops fear that if they try and break these illegal gatherings up, then they will get targeted by left-wing activists.

Nancy Pelosi panicked when she saw this bad news about Dianne Feinstein

Senator Dianne Feinstein is clearly in failing health.

She recently returned to duty after an extended medical leave.

And Nancy Pelosi panicked when she saw this bad news about Feinstein.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein is in clear cognitive decline.

At 89 years old—she will turn 90 in June—Feinstein is the oldest member of Congress, and it’s showing.

Even her constituents believe it’s time for her to go.

According to a UC Berkeley poll, roughly two-thirds of Californians believe that Feinstein is unfit for office.

Feinstein has clearly been “greenlit” by many Party elites because the so-called mainstream media are attacking her health problems, and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez openly called for her to retire.

Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter that Feinstein “should retire. I think criticisms of that stance as ‘anti-feminist’ are a farce. Her refusal to either retire or show up is causing great harm to the judiciary – precisely where [reproductive] rights are getting stripped. That failure means now in this precious window Dems can only pass GOP-approved nominees.”

However, Feinstein has one powerful ally in her corner, helping her hang on for the time being at least – former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Nancy Corinne Prowda, Pelosi’s eldest daughter, has been serving as a caregiver and handler for Feinstein, which is an eyebrow-raising arrangement.

Pelosi’s eldest daughter is helping DiFi stay in place to help Schiff

Pelosi reportedly wants Feinstein to stay in office and serve out her term so Congressman Adam Schiff can be in prime position to replace her.

Pelosi has endorsed Schiff, who became the Democrats’ most reliable and shameless attack dog in Congress in terms of going after Donald Trump.

Pelosi is attempting to scratch his back for the last six years.

If Feinstein were to step down, Governor Gavin Newsom would get to select her replacement, and he would be unlikely to pick Schiff.

Newsom would likely pick a woman of color because he received intense backlash for giving Kamala Harris’s seat to former Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

A Pelosi insider told POLITICO that if “DiFi resigns right now, there is an enormous probability that Barbara Lee gets appointed — thus, it makes it harder for Schiff.”

POLITICO added that “the relationship between Pelosi, her daughter and the senator is ‘being kept under wraps and very, very closely held.’”

The Feinstein drama underscores just how cold-hearted politics can be.

Feinstein clearly is not well and should be at home.

Instead, she’s being wheeled around by Nancy Pelosi’s daughter in order to help Adam Schiff become a U.S. Senator.

Alvin Bragg will be straining at his chain to round up these latest “Subway Marine” style Good Samaritans

These days few good deeds go unpunished.

Leftists appear to be on a mission to disintegrate the fabric of American society. 

And Alvin Bragg will be straining at his chain to round up these latest “Subway Marine” style Good Samaritans.

These days glimmers of hope are a rare find in blue states. 

But a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer may have the help of Good Samaritans to thank for saving his life. 

The nail-biting situation was captured on video when the officer was in the middle of a losing fight and not one, but three, men pulled over and joined the melee to save him from a brutal beatdown. 

One of the men interviewed, Everado Navarro, said what matters most was running through his head when he made the split-second decision to help the officer. 

“I think about my kids at that moment,” he told KCAL. “And at the same time, I did think the officer may have a family as well.”

The officer was already in a headlock when Navarro arrived at the scene—and two other men pulled over to join him in getting the situation under control. 

The suspect was later hospitalized for injuries to his face. 

The drama began when a motorcycle officer was sent to deal with a man who was reportedly yelling at drivers and trying to remove a sign along the highway. 

The officer planned to issue a warning to the suspect when he was suddenly attacked. 

Good Samaritans caught on video rushing to aid a CHPs officer under attack

The incredible video quickly went viral on social media, but it didn’t take long before people began predicting an effort to “Jordan Neely” the Good Samaritans will be underway. 

“Did the attacker go to jail or the Good Samaritan?” one Twitter user asked. 

“Has the District Attorney had them arrested yet?” another wondered. 

Others got straight to cop bashing. 

“Faux news supporting the police 364 days a year,” another user sniped. 

“I’m going to need more info,” another added. “What happened before the video started?”

Fortunately for those who stepped in to help the officer, they were just over the Orange County line saving them from facing possible consequences in Los Angeles County where Soros supported DA George Gascon could have meddled in the case. 

While the entire state of California is something of a mess, Orange County DA Todd Spitzer is more likely to feud with Gascon and friends than go along with their wacky antics backing criminals in an all-out effort to undermine the rule of law. 

But these days, doing the right thing has certainly become fraught with danger.

Firefighters in this blue utopia have to take one test that will leave you furious

Photo by Anna Shvets from Pexels

Democrat strongholds have become parodies of themselves.

People are fleeing to red states because of blue-state mismanagement and terrible policies.

Now Firefighters in this blue utopia have to take one test that will leave you furious.

Seattle is near the top of the list of cities that have become unbearably “woke.”

During the 2020 George Floyd riots, former Mayor Jenny Durkan joked that an “autonomous zone” declared by Antifa terrorists represented what could be “another Summer of Love.”

Several murders later, the so-called autonomous zone was shut down.

But “wokeness” did not end there.

Now the Emerald City is requiring firemen to bone up on radical left-wing theory to receive a promotion to lieutenant.

Fire department lieutenants are tasked with devising a plan of attack for putting out a fire.

They have to know building structures, medical techniques, and many other important details.

And now they need to know how to be an antiracist.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the new lieutenant’s test “is based on a list of texts assigned by the Seattle Department of Human Resources—including, as of this year, How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and Both Sides of the Fire Lane: Memoirs of a Transgender Firefighter by Bobbie Scopa, according to a copy of the exam bibliography…Along with A Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias and Fighting Fire, a memoir by a female firefighter, the books about race and gender span over 800 pages—a large fraction of the total study material.”

Seattle Firefighters’ exam based on books like Memoirs of a Transgender Firefighter

This is utterly preposterous, especially when the job calls for stopping a rampaging fire.

But the new test requirements fit into the Left’s cosmic justice obsession.

Retired Seattle fireman Wayne Johnson said, “This stuff has nothing to do with firefighting…It has everything to do with social engineering.”

But the Left are obsessed with racial and gender bean-counting, so they believe the way to achieve equity is to change to an irrelevant criteria.

Central planners, including Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins, said that if the city wanted more diversity, it needed to avoid tests that “rely heavily on knowledge of firefighting.”

Only leftists could reason themselves to such a ridiculous conclusion.

The report from Scoggins and the other city officials also said, “[T]ests that focus on how well applicants know the system and the job tend to favor those who make up the overwhelming majority of the fire service workforce, white men…Questions that ask more about the candidate’s character and values, rather than knowing the ins and outs of the job, can be beneficial in advancing more women and people of color.”

The Left’s obsession with so-called diversity, inclusivity, and equity is going to end with more tragedies.

NY Governor Kathy Hochul just showed how little she  cares about everyday New Yorkers with one shocking statement

KC Kratt, CC BY-SA 4.0 , via Wikimedia Commons

It’s an open question which politician these days most actively betrays constituents.

But contemplating that could certainly put one in a “New York State of Mind.”

And now Kathy Hochul just showed how little she cares about everyday New Yorkers with this shocking statement.

New York is being overrun, on a smaller scale but still similar to what has been happening to southern states since Joe Biden was sworn into office.

In the last year more than 70,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in New York — with most showing up on buses to New York City without any connections there.

So with that in mind you would think that the state’s highest executive would prioritize the needs of her citizens, given the rise in crime and strain on resources, but…no.

Good jobs are tough to find, the rent too high for many, and Hochul is making it worse

Instead, Gov. Hochul (D) is praising illegal immigration to the state as a victory for big business and corporate special interests.

These groups are reportedly looking to flood the labor market with more foreign workers with whom native New Yorkers will be forced to compete for jobs.

At a press conference, Hochul was all in on the new wave of illegal immigrants, saying, “There are not enough workers here in the state of New York. This is something that is affecting our economy, it’s just individuals, it’s effecting us with this historic labor shortage. But at the same time we have this historic labor shortage, we also have this unprecedented influx of individuals arriving in New York — all of them legally seeking asylum. They’re eager to work, they want to work, they came here in search of work, for a new future … people are ready to start training them.”

But in naming a slew of reasons for the thousands migrating, Hochul incorrectly stated that the reasons she mentioned are valid claims for asylum.

She also failed to mention the strain that illegal immigration is putting on housing prices, rents, and availability for New Yorkers.

That may not be an accident, but rather willful ignorance.

Just because it’s good for business doesn’t mean it’s good

Teresa Kenny represents the small city of Orangetown that sits just above Manhattan and detailed for lawmakers at a recent Congressional hearing just how mass immigration is exacerbating her community’s housing problems.

Kenny said, “Orangetown, like the rest of New York state, is in a housing crisis — an affordability crisis. The question is, how are these [border crossers], without English skills, without family support going to integrate into our community? I will tell you what will happen. They will end up renting from unscrupulous landlords and we know it’s happening because just this past March, there was a tragic housefire in Rockland that killed five undocumented immigrants and two children with five others being hospitalized.”

But for Hochul and other Democrat bigwigs, everyday New Yorkers are secondary to big business corporate cronies and woke special interest pals.

This is just one of many reasons that New York is such a mess. 

But hopefully it’s a cautionary tale that will make other states’ citizens, and their leaders, choose a different path.

Gavin Newsom tears into the woke’s favorite retailer for one insane reason

California Governor Gavin Newsom is the spokesman for the woke brigade. 

Now he’s in a massive meltdown after some decided to move the rainbow on him.

So Newsom just tore into the woke’s favorite retailer for an insane reason.

California Governor Gavin Newsom is lending Target executives a hand after they wanted to drive their brand off a cliff. 

Responding to a massive public backlash, Target stores moved some of their “Pride” kiosks farther back into their stores in a few southern locations. 

The store also removed a few LGBTQ items designed by a notorious Satanist. 

That was all it took for Newsom, the Left’s most ambitious wanna-be president, to start spewing hyperbole. 

Newsom took issue with a report published by the Hill claiming that “Target is removing certain LGBTQ and Pride month merchandise from its stores nationwide after an intense backlash from some customers, including violent confrontations with its workers.”

Newsom retweeted the article with scathing commentary claiming that Target is now leading some kind of persecution against the LGBTQ+ community. 

“CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage,” Newsom raged  in his post. 

“This isn’t just a couple stores in the South,” he added. “There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country.”

Newsom doesn’t like Target sort of responding to customer concerns with PRIDE line relocation

“Wake up America,” the Governor continued. “This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re Next.”

Meanwhile, Target executives seem to be determined to follow Bud Light down the chute thanks to embracing radical woke positions that don’t jive with their customer base. 

Target lost a mind-boggling $9 billion following a boycott led by conservatives on social media. 

That came shortly after the company launched its “PRIDE” clothing collection for children.

The company has been holding emergency meetings in an effort to stop the bleeding after the American Conservative Values ETF (ACVF) announced it has sold off its stake in the retailer and added it to a “refuse to buy” list. 

“Target Corp.’s ever-increasing pandering to the Woke LGBT agenda has backfired and its management team’s inept response to a crisis of their own making has significantly damaged their brand across the political spectrum,” ACVF argued in a press release. “We believe their stocks’ long-term performance will suffer because of it. Their actions have also removed any doubt about the company’s hostility to conservative values.” 

Despite the fact that Bud Light, Nike, and Disney have already taken a drubbing in the market over woke initiatives, on May 17 Target’s CEO, Brian Cornell, spent plenty of time bragging about the corporation’s woke plans on Fortune’s “Leadership Next” podcast. 

“The things we’ve done from a DEI [diversity, equity, and inclusion] standpoint, it’s adding value,” Cornell claimed. “It’s helping us drive sales, it’s building greater engagement with both our teams and our guests, and those are just the right things for our business today.”

No doubt, losing $9 billion for stockholders is casting some serious doubt on Cornell’s assertion. 

According to a report from Insider, Cornell is continuing to insist on his loyalty to the Left’s agenda. 

“To the LGBTQIA+ community, one of the hardest parts in all of this was trying to contemplate how the adjustments we’re making to alleviate these threats to our team’s physical and psychological safety would impact you and your wellbeing and psychological safety,” he allegedly wrote in an email to employees. “We stand with you now and will continue to do so—not just during Pride Month, but each and every day.”

It seems the leftists running Wall Street have billions up billions to burn in their woke crusade.

John Fetterman staffer said something about guns that will leave your jaw on the floor

Photo by Kelly from Pexels

The Democrats have made it a mission to go after the Second Amendment.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris represent the most anti-gun administration in history.

And one John Fetterman staffer said something about guns that will leave your jaw on the floor.

Democrats pretend as though they don’t want to ban guns outright, but sometimes the truth accidentally slips out.

Some on the Left openly admit they want to abolish the Second Amendment, but others stop short and call for “common-sense” gun laws that are feckless.

And a staffer for Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman got caught admitting his boss’s true position on guns.

An undercover journalist for the O’Keefe Media Group (OMG), James O’Keefe’s new venture since splitting from Project Veritas, caught Fetterman special assistant Luke Borwegan saying that the senator would “be okay with overturning the second amendment, probably…I think he’d much rather prefer, like, nobody have guns at all.”

Fetterman’s position on guns is particularly galling since he once chased down a black jogger with his shotgun; it turned out that the jogger had not committed any crime.

Borwegan also confessed that the Fetterman team picks out journalists that will write favorable stories precisely how they want them.

Constituents may only see news about their Senator filtered through his staff’s press operations

The undercover OMG journalist asked, “So that’s why you pick the journalists that you pick, cause they’ll say whatever you want them to?”

Borwegan replied, “Yeah, pretty much…so like they won’t say nothing in a bad light…Everybody wants a story about John Fetterman and we only give it to certain people.”

Regarding Fetterman’s recent hospital stay for clinical depression, Borwegan said, “We’ll paint the narrative the way we want. So it’s like, when John checks himself in for depression we will tell one reporter in particular because they will hit the facts that we want them to…[W]e pick reporters that will give us good treatment.”

Borwegan added that Fetterman’s office practices “access journalism,” but perhaps the bigger issue is that they’re hindering any efforts to report honestly on the Senator.

For instance, NBC News reporter Dasha Burns was raked over the coals for mentioning that Fetterman struggled to engage in small talk when the cameras were not rolling.

The corporate-controlled press despises O’Keefe because he breaks stories like these that make legacy institutions look bad.

Fetterman clearly cannot be trusted on gun rights.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams has outed himself as a vegan totalitarian with this new plan

When he initially ran to be Big Apple Mayor, Eric Adam’s positioned himself as the more moderate candidate on the ballot.

But after months with him at the helm, it’s safe to say that any moderation was just an illusion.

Now NYC Mayor Eric Adams has outed himself as a vegan totalitarian with this new plan.

After a year and a half of Adams’ rule it has become clear that he’s fallen short trying to turn New York City around.

He’s doing nothing to stop the pervasive crime and homelessness.

This has become all the more apparent with the death of Jordan Neely and the political prosecution of hero ex-Marine Daniel Penny.

One aspect of his rule that hasn’t gotten as much attention is that he is all in on the radical green agenda.

Last month Adams announced that the city will place caps on the amount of meat and dairy served by city institutions such as schools and prisons.

It’s all part of a radical plan to cut New York’s food-related carbon emissions by 33 percent by 2030.

Who wants to know how much steak you eat….and why?

There is new word that New York will soon be tracking household food consumption by private citizens as part of the Mayor’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice’s Greenhouse Gas Inventories.

The tracking of steak, hamburger, milk, and cheese is just for research – for now, but it’s easy to see how this could later be put to use by a leftist-run city government to create regulations for businesses and individuals that might make it harder to purchase such products.

This plan is essentially in line with AOC’s “Green New Deal” and calls to mind a future of an America where citizens can no longer drive gas-powered cars, are forced to fly less, and give up eating meat and dairy. 

In an unfortunate turn of events exacerbated by their mayor, New Yorkers now face increased crime, violent attacks on the subways, prosecutors who are uninterested in jailing criminals, and out-of-control homelessness.

All of this has reduced the livability of even Manhattan neighborhoods where middle-class residents have been priced out of housing.

“Progressive” priorities are completely out of whack

When AOC’s “Green New Deal” mentioned food alongside fossil fuels on the list of environmental extremists’ targets it wasn’t just a one-off.

In the end, this really is about completely misplaced priorities.

And the far-left ideologues at City Hall seem to be enthusiastically looking forward to more “caps” on meat and dairy at any institution they control.

What they ought to be focused on, for the good of their citizens, are the myriad of immediately pressing problems plaguing the Big Apple right now.
