Democrats just erected one monstrous statue in New York City

New York is experiencing crime not seen since the mid-1990s.

But while crime spikes, leftists are concerned with completely irrelevant matters.

Now Democrats just erected one monstrous statue in New York City.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul narrowly won her race against Republican challenger Lee Zeldin in a state where Democrats significantly outnumber Republicans.

And New York City Mayor Eric Adams was elected over more hard-left candidates because of his experience as the former police chief.

Republicans also over-performed down the ballot in the 2022 elections in New York.

New Yorkers are screaming for law and order, but instead they’re getting an eight-foot statue honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

RBG statue called out for resemblance to “satanic imagery”

The city temporarily erected a statue to honor departed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that was quickly panned as rife with disturbing imagery.

The statue was placed atop the Appellate Division courthouse for the New York State Supreme Court on Madison Ave.

The statue has Ginsburg’s famous lace collar along with goat horns and a tentacle-like arms.

Shahzia Sikander, the Pakistani-born artist who created the piece, explained, “She is a fierce woman and a form of resistance in a space that has historically been dominated by patriarchal representation.”

The statue is called NOW, which could be a double entendre for the National Organization for Women.

Militant feminism has long had ties to paganism and the occult.

For example, the first issue of the feminist periodical Ms. Magazine featured the Hindu goddess Kali, who was also known as the “dark mother.”

Sikander added, “With Ginsburg’s death and the reversal of Roe, there was a setback to women’s constitutional progress.”

The “setback” was that more babies would live.

Meanwhile, leftists are taking down statues of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt.

Unsurprisingly, there was pushback to the RBG statue.

New York City Councilwoman Vickie Paladino wrote on Twitter, “Was there any public input whatsoever before a satanic golden medusa demon with tentacle arms was installed atop a downtown courthouse. Who thinks this is okay? And how do we go about removing it?”

The Left constantly make unilateral decisions in the culture, then they fume when people call them out for their radicalism.

Katie Hobbs won’t say where she is sending illegals that fellow Democrats welcomed to her state

Democrat officials often talk a good game, but when the rubber meets the road, their policies are demonstrable failures.

Far-Left policy on immigration and border security is an excellent example of this.

Now, Gov. Katie Hobbs (D-AZ) won’t say where she is sending the illegals that fellow Democrats welcomed to her state.

Former Governor Doug Ducey (R) bussed illegal immigrants out of Arizona rather than have them overwhelm services and resources in his state.

He was met with widespread outrage and condemnation from Democrats.

But now, seemingly because the practice was successful, the leftist new Governor Katie Hobbs is continuing the practice.

“Efficient and humane”

Of course, she’s couching it a different way, saying that her administration is ensuring that the state’s continued payment of migrants’ travel costs is “efficient and humane.”

In an interview with the Arizona Sun, Hobbs said, “We just wanted to make sure that we were addressing this issue and, as I talked about many times in the campaign, in a way that was the best use of taxpayer resources and something that wasn’t a political stunt.”

Former Gov. Ducey began busing migrants out of Arizona back in May.

He later included the option of chartered air travel aboard a 737 aircraft in the program.

The border has seen records broken for illegal crossings month after month since President Biden’s inauguration.

Last week, Hobbs said, “We need to look at that practice and make sure it’s effective, that it’s something that supports local communities. If we’re spending the money to bus people, why not just get them to their final destination? We’re interested in focusing on the humanitarian aspects of this and just putting people on a bus as a political stunt and sending them to Martha’s Vineyard or wherever they went is not providing any help or any solution to the actual issue.”

No more room for illegal immigrants

New York Democrat Mayor Eric Adams visited the border at El Paso, Texas, and declared that there is no more room for illegal immigrants in his city.

This comes after New York boasted for years about its “sanctuary city status.”

Now that Republican governors have had enough of the illegal immigration to their states and have decided to “share the wealth” with the blue cities who pretend to welcome illegal immigrants, Adams has called on the federal government to solve the crisis.

Similarly, Hobbs’ action shows that it’s easy to claim to be compassionate until the effects of bad public policy show up on your doorstep.

Hopefully the actions Hobbs is taking, rhetoric aside, gets the message across to other members of her political party that border security is necessary and the administration’s dithering is counterproductive and endangers the security of everyday Americans.

Adam Schiff is furious after this bold action taken by Matt Gaetz

After four years in the wilderness, the GOP is finally starting to counter the excesses and questionable conduct they allege were rampant under Democrat rule.

Adam Schiff is one Congressman in particular who stands out from the rest of the pack as the center of numerous alleged misdeeds.

And Schiff will be furious after this bold action taken by Matt Gaetz.

Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has introduced legislation that would call on the House to vote on if Schiff should be banned from accessing and viewing any and all classified information.

This move comes as Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blocked Adam Schiff from sitting on the House Intelligence Committee.

Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses (PENCIL)

The PENCIL Act, or “Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses” Resolution is a salute to former President Donald Trump’s nickname of Schiff, “Pencil-Neck.”

Before introducing the legislation, Gaetz said, “Congressman Adam Schiff led the effort for years to weaponize lies from the Clinton campaign and a corrupt Department of Justice to smear President Trump while destroying any trust the country had left in America’s intelligence agencies. Speaker McCarthy kept his promise to remove Rep. Schiff from the Intelligence Committee, and with the PENCIL Resolution, we will express the sense of Congress that he should be barred from accessing any classified information at all. He can no longer be trusted by his colleagues in Congress or the American people.”

While it might be easy to dismiss Gaetz’s action as little more than a stunt and a retaliation for years of Schiff’s partisan handling of his committee chairmanship, there’s more than initially meets the eye here.

In a recent Fox News appearance, former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the California Congressman of leaking classified information.

“Schiff should be nowhere near serving on the Intelligence Committee”

Pompeo said, “During my time as CIA director and secretary of state, I know that he leaked classified information that had been provided to him. It’s a complicated process, right? It’s difficult to pin down precisely what happened. But I could tell you that when we provided information to him and to his staff, it ended up in places it shouldn’t have been with alarming regularity. We could see it. In the end, I decided, I held back information from them as a result. The fact that Schiff was the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee almost ruined that committee. Schiff should be nowhere near serving on the Intelligence Committee. I don’t think he should be seeing classified information.”

In the end, Schiff has no one to blame for his behavior over the past four years but himself.

Kudos to Gaetz for highlighting Schiff and everything wrong with the corruption between Congressional Democrats and the Department of Justice.

Judge may put Lori Lightfoot on the stand over heart-breaking footage

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot basks in the power and prestige of her office.

But she has zero interest in answering one journalist’s probing questions about why her city’s streets look “dystopian.”

Now, a judge may put Lori Lightfoot on the stand over heart-breaking footage.

Jaw-dropping new footage reveals the wasteland America’s third largest city has become during leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s reign.

But while Lightfoot refused to lift a finger to stop Black Lives Matter rioters from ransacking the city, she’s going all-out to prevent journalist William J. Kelly from revealing exactly how bad things are in the Windy City.

Recently Kelly appeared on Fox and Friends to discuss exactly what’s happening as crime ravages Chicago neighborhoods and businesses.

Kelly is suing embattled Chicago Mayor over yanked press credentials

“The policies that really destroyed State Street and honestly, Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile was the one-two punch of the lockdowns, the looting, but also the policies that continue to this day,” Kelly explained during his interview with Steve Doocy.

“Believe it or not, if someone shoplifting up to $1,000, there are no consequences,” he added. “So imagine, Steve, how long can you stay in business if somebody is stealing $1,000 from you every single day?”

“In a month, that’s $30,000 in a year, that’s $3 million. You’re not going to be able to stay in business,” he pointed out.

How Chicago businesses are supposed to survive in a crime ridden environment is one of numerous questions Kelly poses that Lightfoot, who has been dubbed “worst mayor in America” refuses to answer.

In fact, as Lightfoot faces re-election next month she’s stripped Kelly of his press credentials to avoid facing questions she’d rather not face including why some street vendors have turned to local gangs for protection due to the Lightfoot administration’s utter failure to deal with crime.

Now Kelly is fighting back through the legal system.

“She didn’t do anything to stop the looting. She didn’t do anything to stop the shoplifting right up to and including today,” Kelly explained. “She revoked my media credential. I filed a federal freedom of press lawsuit against Mayor Lightfoot. The questions that she didn’t want me to ask her at City Hall, I will be asking her under oath.”

“I intend to get these answers, and I intend to cover this mayor’s race, and I intend to expose what really is behind the destruction of our city,” he added.

Three years after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and Marxist Black Lives matter riots, crime is still skyrocketing in Chicago with violent crime up 41% and robberies increasing by a mind-blowing 114%.

Leftists like Lori Lightfoot thought they could get away with implementing their radical agenda.

But the truth is their ideas are rotten to the core and catching up to them quickly.

Regrettably, they’re leaving a wasteland in their wake.

LGBT activists are pushing things further with this outrageous action

Social norms have been changing over the last several years in the wake of a relentless push from the Left.

Most people take a “live and let live” approach – but more and more, citizens are speaking up as radicals push beyond their tolerance.

Now LGBT activists are pushing things further with this outrageous action.

One school district in Wisconsin has decided that elementary school students need to be subjected to propaganda by radical activists.

The Madison Metropolitan School District has implemented a weeklong gender identity and sexual orientation lesson.

It’s all part of “Health and Social Emotional Learning” and is purportedly going to teach about the difference between gender identity, sex assigned at birth and sexual orientation.

The euphemism for the brainwashing is called “Welcoming Schools,” and is in fact a LGBTQ training and school program created by the radical left Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRCF).

According to an email, “The goal is for students to understand the difference between gender, sexual orientation and sex assigned at birth. Students are NOT being asked to share their specific identities for each of these components, rather just acknowledging that they exist and are different and how to show respect for all identities.”

A gender “snowperson”

The introduction video described gender identity, sexual orientation and sex assigned at birth using a “gender snowperson” to showcase inclusivity.

This is not exactly the kind of material that is needed for eight-year-olds to prepare themselves for adolescence.

According to the HRCF website, “The Welcoming Schools project focuses on creating gender inclusive schools through lessons and professional development training programs. Lessons will include read-alouds and classroom discussions surrounding gender identity, sex assigned at birth and sexual orientation The week concludes with a rainbow day.”

Naturally, not everyone is looking at this through rainbow-colored glasses.

Parents have complained about what they say is inappropriate sex education for elementary school children, particularly in a school district in which many students are testing below grade level in core subjects like math, science and Language Arts.

“students go to school to learn, not to be indoctrinated by political activists.”

“Students go to school to learn, not to be indoctrinated by political activists”

Cory Brewer, associate counsel at the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, says, “Parents should remain vigilant and engaged with their local school districts, many of which do not hesitate to persuade students to a particular point of view. And importantly, our state law requires schools to teach topics that are medically accurate and age appropriate. It should not be controversial to suggest that students go to school to learn, not to be indoctrinated by political activists.”

Conservatives have warned for years that the kind of cultural decadence associated with the LGBT movement would eventually lead down uncomfortable and unhealthy paths if there wasn’t pushback against truly objectionable actions by politicians who claim to speak for their constituents.

But there hasn’t been the political will or courage, and now kids are getting LGBT propaganda in public schools directed at their young, impressionable minds.

The only way to put a stop to this is for parents to shine the light on what’s being taught, actively oppose it, let other parents know about it and then collectively push back against the actions of these radical school boards.

People who hired John Fetterman are recruiting lifeguards—and it’s about as awful as you can possibly imagine

Philadelphia voters overwhelmingly voted to send a man to the US Senate despite his stroke during the campaign and the struggles to understand language, think, and speak afterward.

Now the people who hired John Fetterman are recruiting lifeguards.

And it’s about as awful as you can possibly imagine.

Nothing says summer like long days at the pool.

It’s the stuff childhood memories are built on.

But there’s also an element of danger.

Drowning is the number one cause of death among young children ages 1-4 and the second biggest cause of accidental death among children up to age 14.

Even more shocking, USA Management reports that 19% of annual drowning deaths among children in the United States happen at a public pool with a lifeguard present.

With that in mind, you’d think city aquatic program managers would be taking every precaution to make sure they staff their pools with highly-qualified lifeguards more at home in the water than on land.

But in Philadelphia the city is actually recruiting people who can’t swim to guard the community’s children this summer.

It seems the City of Brotherly Love is facing a persistent lifeguard staffing shortage for its aquatic program.

Rather than shut down the pools until they can find qualified workers, the city is taking a jaw-dropping risk.

Philly Magazine reports that “desperate for lifeguards, Philly says it’s ok if interested candidates can’t swim.”

Ironically, Googling “number of drowning deaths in Philadelphia public pools” generates a long list of legal firms all too aware of the danger.

But somehow the geniuses running the City of Philadelphia have decided they’ll deal with a staffing shortage by lowering their standards.

“So, for the 2023 pool season in Philadelphia, the city has started recruiting early. And if you can’t swim, you can still apply. That’s right,” Philly Magazine writer Victor Fiorillo reported. “According to representatives of the city’s Parks & Recreation Department I spoke with, the city is actively recruiting lifeguard candidates who would sink like a stone if you threw them in the deep end today.”

The city reportedly plans to “provide free swimming lessons at Lincoln High School in Mayfair to anybody who doesn’t know how to swim, assuming they are committed to testing into the lifeguard program this summer.”

Perhaps officials in a city where people were willing to elect a candidate who struggled to understand language, think, and speak during his campaign for Senate should never be in charge of such decisions with life-and-death consequences.

Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom are teaming up to violate civil rights

There is nothing that the Left hates more than the United States Constitution.

That is because the Constitution was wisely designed to limit the power of the federal government, which goes against everything they believe in.

And now, Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom are teaming up to violate civil rights.

Democrats loathe the Constitution and other founding documents

In recent years, the Democrat Party has made it abundantly obvious that they hate the United States Constitution.

This is particularly true for the Second Amendment which Democrats loathe most of all.

Over the years, the Left has done everything in their power to limit the right to bear arms by implementing a slew of nonsensical “gun control” measures.

This is especially true whenever a horrific mass shooting takes place, which the Left consistently blame on the mere existence of guns.

Just last weekend, California saw a tragic mass shooting unfold in Monterey Park, followed by another in Half Moon Bay on Monday.

This despite California having very strict gun control laws.

Predictably, Democrats jumped to conclusions before any details of the shootings were revealed, and many are already calling for more gun control.

Two such Democrats are California Governor Gavin Newsom and Vice President Kamala Harris, who used to represent California in the United States Senate.

Last Wednesday, Kamala Harris went to Monterey Park to allegedly pay tribute to the fallen victims.

Harris said “Tragically, we keep saying the same things. Congress must act. Should they? Yes. Can they? Yes.”

Gavin Newsom said on Tuesday that “It’s said all the time: ‘Only in America. No. 1 in gun ownership, No. 1 in gun deaths. It’s not even complicated.”

It seems like the politicians are more interested in playing politics.

Both Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom have both signaled support for stricter gun laws in the past, including a ban on the most widely-owned semi-automatic modern rifles, which the Gun Control Lobby deems as so-called “assault weapons.”

Stopping Kamala Harris and the Democrats’ radical anti-gun agenda must be a priority of the new Congress

Moving forward, House Republicans must come together in order to prevent Kamala Harris and Joe Biden from gaining an inch when it comes to their radical, anti-gun agenda.

A so-called “assault weapons” ban would be an absolute disaster for America.

Criminals would be allowed to run wild with all sorts of guns, while law-abiding Americans would be forced to stay home and cower in fear.

In some states like Oregon, citizens now must buy a permit to own any gun which has created legal chaos.

Democrats want to implement laws like this one all across the nation, and freedom-loving Americans must be prepared to fight back against their assault on the Second Amendment.

Retired homicide investigator laid waste to the LAPD’s top cop for taking a knee in this heated policy battle

Democrat-run cities are on the ropes with crime on the rise and leadership that seems unable to solve the problem.

Now some think they have scored an important win.

But this retired LAPD homicide investigator laid waste to the City of Angels’ top cop for taking a knee in one heated policy battle.

The violent crime trends in Los Angeles are not good.

That’s why George Soros-backed District Attorney George Gascón barely survived a recall effort under dubious circumstances.

Even Hollywood liberals support the effort to recall Gascón.

And Angelenos almost elected Rick Caruso as mayor, who changed his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat five minutes before the election.

Crime has gotten so bad, liberals in Beverly Hills are even scrambling to buy guns and go to the range.

LA Democrats score a policy ‘win’ by banning symbol of respect for police as crime spirals out of control

As crime and homelessness spike in the city, officials in Los Angeles got down to doing important work, such as banning the “Thin Blue Line” flag.

Los Angeles Police Chief Michael Moore banned department personnel from displaying the symbol on uniforms or bumper stickers or anywhere else within stations.

LAPD Chief suggests those who now fly “Thin Blue Line Flag” are racists and extremists

Moore said, “It’s unfortunate that extremist groups have hijacked the use of the `Thin Blue Line Flag’ to symbolize their undemocratic, racist, and bigoted views…Flags serve as powerful symbols with specific meanings.”

Support for law enforcement or Second Amendment rights immediately get lumped in with the worst of the worst in leftist groupthink, which is preposterous.

Retired homicide cop rips Police Chief and Mayor for the move

Retired LAPD homicide detective Sal LaBarbera said in response to Moore, “I love seeing our LAPD in the national news. Except this time for the most embarrassing reason. Calling Chief Michael Moore weak for caving to the communist Mayor. Grow a spine, support the troops and law and order.”

The “communist Mayor” would be Karen Bass, who barely defeated Caruso.

Bass has more than flirted with Communism in the past, which hurt her chances of getting Kamala Harris’s Senate seat.

The LAPD isn’t the only organization caving to this left-wing framing.

Leaked documents from the FBI showed that the Bureau considered the Betsy Ross flag, the Gadsden flag, and the Gonzales Battle flag as potential indicators of “Militia Violent Extremism.”

The fact that Caruso almost won in a city where Republicans have zero chance of getting elected citywide is indicative of how bad things have gotten.

Far-Left policies do not work, and Bass is promising more of the same.

Banning the “Thin Blue Line” flag is not going to do anything to curb violent crime.

If anything, it will make crime worse by further demonizing and demoralizing the police.

Gavin Newsom attacked Fox News for one sick reason

Democrat policy positions are rotten to the core.

And as they face growing threats of exposure, leftists are lashing out in anger.

Now California Governor Gavin Newsom is attacking Fox News for this sick reason.

Democrats like to pretend gun-toting conservatives and rural Americans are uncouth and dangerous characters.

But the truth is that big blue cities and states are some of the most dangerous parts of the country with criminals knowing they have the edge in areas where more than half the population is so terrified of firearms they wouldn’t dream of keeping one for personal protection.

Newsom blames Fox News for attacks

Now in the wake of a rash of killings in California—where nobody was able to shoot back and protect themselves—Newsom is blaming Fox News for the carnage.

Newsom was visiting victims of the Monterey Park shooting where 11 people died when he was informed another 7 people had been shot in Half Moon Bay.

Those shootings came on the heels of a cartel-style shooting in Goshen where six family members were shot including a 73-year-old grandmother, 16-year-old mother, and a baby.

Instead of trying to figure out why one of the bluest states in America is home to such brutal carnage, Newsom is grasping for a scapegoat to blame and Fox News came across his radar.

“It’s a disgrace what they say, what these people say every single night,” Newsom said, according to ABC 10. “There’s xenophobia, they’re racial priming, what they have done to perpetuate crime and violence in this country, by scapegoating, and by doing not a damn thing about gun safety, not a damn thing for decades.”

Of course, “gun safety” won’t do a thing to wipe out sheer evil in society.

The value of having good people trained, armed, and willing to step up at a moment’s notice has been proven time and again.

One of the most notable cases was in July last year when 22-year-old Elishjsha Dicken took down a mentally deranged shooter inside an Indiana mall.

It only took two minutes for Dicken to take out a man who was armed to the teeth and clearly planning to commit mass murder.

If he really wanted to make a difference, Newsom would be rolling back California’s strict anti-gun laws, and encouraging Californians to take real precautions to protect themselves.

Instead, he’s taking cheap shots at one of few outlets willing to deviate from the left’s scripted political narrative hoping to score points with his political party in the wake of horrific tragedies.

Thug who attacked Fox News weatherman just got a new reason to look over his shoulder

The crime wave in large Democrat-controlled cities continues unabated across the country as the corporate-controlled media ignores it.

But an attack on one high-profile individual means even the media elites can’t ignore it all together.

Now one thug who attacked a Fox News weatherman just got a new reason to look over his shoulder.

According to Fox News meteorologist and attack victim Adam Klotz, the violent crew who attacked him egged each other on to “put him to sleep” while on a southbound No. 1 train near 18th Street last Saturday.

Fourth suspect made public after violent attack on Fox News Weatherman in crime-infested NYC

According to police, three of the suspects — two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old — were arrested soon after the attack and then released, but a new surveillance image shown by the NYPD Monday night shows a young black man in a black jacket and light sweater.

The suspect is still at-large and is believed to be connected to the attack.

“Put him to sleep!”

In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Klotz said, “This whole group comes and gang-rushes me, jumps on me and just starts beating me and kicking me. I hear, ‘Put him to sleep, put him to sleep, put him to sleep, put him to sleep.’ They wanted to knock me out. And my goal at that point — it’s just like, cover my head, because once you’re unconscious, who knows what’s going to happen? And I was able to avoid that, but I got kicked up and down the side, kind of stomped on. They got their licks in for sure.”

It all started when Klotz was on his way home after he spent the evening at a bar with friends.

Klotz saw the group of teens setting a senior’s hair on fire and he felt the need to step in.

Klotz said, “A group of I’d say like seven teens, one started to light up a joint, and with the lighter still in his hand, just put a live lighter in an elderly man’s hair and it blew up like a matchbook. His entire head was on fire. And the guy’s knocking out his hair. “I was just sitting right there watching it and how can you not intervene? I said, ‘Whoa, guys, you can’t do that.’ And then they just did not want to be told what they could or couldn’t do. So then suddenly the focus was on me.”

Klotz said the group then attacked him.

Juvenile reports mean a different set of rules

According to officials, the three young thugs who have already been released with “juvenile reports” could only face charges if Klotz files a complaint with the city Department of Probation.

That department would then decide if it would refer the case to the Law Department.

These juvenile reports are handed to teens who allegedly commit an act that would constitute an offense if perpetrated by an adult.

Police say that could still lodge charges against the gang.

NYPD Deputy Chief Kevin Maloney said, “The decision was to get all the information before we move forward. The decision was made to release them to their parents and make efforts to identify the other victim, which we did. We’re talking to him now to see if there are appropriate charges. They could be issued appearance tickets to appear in family court.”

What happened to the elderly victim of the attack, and the Fox News Weatherman who was also attacked for daring to speak up, is an outrage.

What’s even more outrageous is that the “criminal justice reform” enacted by Democrats in New York is directly related to teenagers becoming ungovernable little savages because they know they can attack with impunity with little more than a slap on the wrist.

Sadly for New Yorkers, the only way to turn this around is to elect leaders who will reverse some of the policies currently in place, and hopefully this happens sooner rather than later.
