Far-left councilwoman defended Biden’s border crisis with one insane proposal

0

Joe Biden’s immigration policies have been a disaster.

Even Democrats are beginning to panic.

But a far-left councilwoman defended Biden’s border crisis with one insane proposal.

Democrats virtue-signaled about being “sanctuary” jurisdictions when the illegal alien crisis was confined to red states on the border.

But now that northern Democrat strongholds are under the gun, leaders are changing their tune.

However, there are still some hardcore leftists that refuse to address the problem at the source: the border.

Boston City Councilwoman Julia Mejia wants other towns around the “sanctuary” of Boston to pick up the slack and help house migrants.

Mejia called for “Dedham, Wellesley, Brookline, you know, cities and towns that have so much more resources than the city of Boston” to chip in.

It turns out that thousands of people showing up every month is a serious problem.

She added, “I think everybody needs to start opening up their doors because this is a shared responsibility.”

A local Boston news report on the issue argued, “Controversy over the placement of surging immigrants comes as a new report links immigrants who settle in Massachusetts to economic benefits for the region.”

This has been the argument of open borders advocates in the establishment of both parties.

A surplus of low-skill illegal alien workers allows for employers to keep labor costs lower, which can make prices more competitive.

Immigrants are also consumers, so they buy goods and services.

However, while illegal immigration might benefit some, it hurts Americans competing for the same jobs and stops wages from raising organically.

Illegal aliens also take out more resources than what they contribute.

There is also the downstream political calculation, which is why the Left abandoned their old opposition to illegal immigration on labor grounds.

Americans in Democrat cities, particularly black and Hispanic Americans, are beginning to push back on the open borders policies of the Democrats.

In Boston, a community center in the predominantly black neighborhood of Roxbury was shut down and converted into a migrant processing center.

All Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey could think to do was cry about the situation instead of putting pressure on her fellow Democrats to do something about the border.

Healey said, “I’m emotional guys, okay? Because I’m committed to this. Little kids need to be able to breathe clean air. They need to be able to access swimming pools. They need to have lifeguards there who can teach them how to swim. And they need to have activities. I don’t know what we’re gonna do for a couple, three months. I’ll call universities. I’ll call other places.”

Healey will call everyone except the White House.

Electric vehicle goes up in flames for a reason that left the owner spitting mad

0

People seeking to go “green” are spending hand over fist on the newest electric vehicles. 

These consumers have quickly learned that many electric vehicles are nothing short of an expensive headache, especially in places that are ill-equipped to handle them. 

And this leading EV manufacturer just got a fresh new headache after one vehicle went up in flames.

San Francisco rioters just proved a key fault in this promising invention

Recent reports in the mainstream media are indicating consumer demand for electric vehicles is trinkling to a halt.

With virtually every level of government passing policies to promote the production and sales of electric vehicles, the raw number of electric vehicles on the streets continues to increase.

Electric car manufacturer Waymo has taken this to a whole new level. 

Waymo has having developed a line of 100% self-driving electric vehicles. 

Waymo has tested a number of its revolutionary vehicles in cities like San Francisco to test their viability to create a better product, which it hopes to release worldwide. 

But during a Lunar New Year celebration in San Francisco last Saturday, some rowdy revelers took things a bit too far, setting fire to an unmanned Waymo Robotaxi. 

According to the Bay Area’s ABC 7, “Police say a Waymo car was set on fire by a mob of people. It happened during the Lunar New Year celebrations. No one was inside the car and officials are vowing to make arrests.” 

One witness, Edwin Carungay, spoke out about the incident to ABC 7 saying, “They were putting out some rage for really no reason at all. They just wanted to vandalize something, and they did,” adding, “one young man jumped on the hood and on the windshield. That kind of started the whole melee.”

Nathan Vandersteen told ABC 7 he also saw the melee break out adding, “Then someone threw a firework inside the car.”

He then claimed, “Eventually people backed away. It was dangerous. The car could have exploded. It was a mob mentality, the adrenaline of the situation; it was mostly young teenagers responsible for damage and vandalism.”

These sorts of crimes are destroying the Bay Area and countless other communities

City officials, including police and fire department officials vow to hold these rioters accountable.

However, crimes like this have become a part of everyday life in the Bay Area. 

Many fear that crimes like these will continue to pull much-needed investment away from the bay area. 

Similarly, these actions reveal a key flaw with driverless electric vehicles. 

When all hell breaks loose, these cars do not seem to have a fight or flight response. 

Rioters are free to hijack the vehicles, causing significant amounts of damage to these expensive vehicles as a result. 

At the end of the day, the out of control crime in San Francisco and other west coast cities are to blame for the fires that happened last weekend. 

If city officials do not take this seriously, then companies like Waymo will pack their bags for another safer city in the near future.

Democrat mayor said Biden’s border crisis forced him to do one infuriating thing

0

Joe Biden’s immigration policies are sinking the country.

Even Democrats are getting fed up.

And a Democrat mayor said Biden’s border crisis forced him to do one infuriating thing.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been repeating the Democrat party line that the “border is secure” for years.

But now that that talking point can no longer hold, Democrats have pivoted to blaming the border crisis on Republicans.

MSNBC host Al Sharpton even called the border crisis an “invasion,” language that would’ve gotten him called a conspiracy theory five minutes ago.

The latest Democrat to feel the burden of the border crisis is Denver Mayor Mike Johnston.

During a press conference, he of course blamed Republicans for refusing to sign a horrible Senate border deal that would have only made the problem worse, then announced cuts to city services.

Johnston said, “I’m here to talk a little bit about the devastating impact of the failure of Republican leadership in Congress this week to pass comprehensive immigration change and the impact that will have on both city budgets and on services that we can provide for newcomers in the city…We will start to have to greenlight a set of hard decisions about budget reductions across the city to meet those costs that we know will continue to arrive. We want to talk about two of those today. While they’re the first steps, they unfortunately will not be the last and may not be the hardest. This is a plan for shared sacrifice. And so in terms of our first step on city cuts, we are announcing today we will make some changes both to our services at DMV and to our services on Parks and Rec.” 

This is only the latest measure undertaken by the Johnston administration.

Last month, NBC News reported that approximately “40,000 migrants have arrived in Denver over the past year, making a city with a population of just over 710,000 the top destination per capita for newly arrived migrants crossing the U.S. southern border and traveling north in buses from Texas. The influx is taking a toll on the city’s public safety net. Starting Feb. 5, Denver will limit the number of days migrants can stay in shelters and send those who exceed their stay out onto the streets.”

So Denver is kicking people onto the streets because the migrant crisis has spiraled out of control.

This is why polls show that Donald Trump has a 30-point lead on Biden regarding the issue of immigration.

Police officers are speechless after this jaw-dropping attack makes headlines across the nation

0

Many American communities suffer from out-of-control crime and depravity as the direct result of decades of Democrat control. 

Law-abiding citizens ultimately pay the price for the Left’s soft stance on crime, with many innocent citizens afraid to leave their own homes. 

Now police officers are stunned after this vicious attack makes headlines across the nation.

Chicago has become one of America’s largest no-go zones as police struggle to keep up with crime

Crime has increased in most American communities, causing millions of innocent, law-abiding Americans to fear leaving their homes. 

The Democrats who run these states and cities are largely responsible, having passed a long list of measures that allow criminals to commit horrible crimes without facing any serious consequences. 

The once great city of Chicago for example has seen a considerable rise in crime since the death of George Floyd in 2020 after Illinois and Chicago lawmakers made it harder than ever to lock up dangerous criminals.

Just this past weekend, a brutal attack unfolded where a man attacked a group of people, causing them to bash him with a hammer in self-defense. 

Per NBC Chicago, “A suspect is in critical condition after he allegedly began attacking a group of people on Chicago’s Northwest Side, with one of the victims striking him in the head with a hammer.”

The report added, “According to police, officers were called to the 7300 block of West Summerdale at approximately 11:47 p.m. for a report of a battery in progress.” 

As far as the attack itself is concerned, NBC Chicago claims, “A 36-year-old man at the scene had begun to attack multiple individuals, police said, and one of those victims is believed to have struck him on the head with a hammer.  After officers arrived, the suspect continued his assault, punching a police car before the officers deployed a taser and were able to take him into custody.”

Furthermore, “The suspect was taken to an area hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, police said. There were no reports of any other hospitalizations stemming from the attack.” 

As it stands, police officers are working to identify everyone involved and charges are expected in the coming days. 

Attacks like these have become increasingly common in Chicago as seen spikes in both violent crime and thefts of all severities continue to rise. 

Criminals rule the streets of Chicago and other big cities across the nation

In Chicago, and many other communities across the nation, criminals rule the streets and strike fear in the hearts of law-abiding citizens. 

Democrats have passed policies that leave police officers without the resources to tackle crime.

This allows criminals to act with impunity. 

To make matters worse, hordes of illegal aliens have flooded America’s biggest cities, further straining their resources and abilities to enforce crime.

Many worry that cities like Chicago are simply overwhelmed and that the damage that Democrats have done in recent years will be reversed any time soon.

Gavin Newsom self-sabotages career with this head-scratching priority as homelessness and crime plagues California

California is exhibit A of the havoc created by polices stemmed from decades of complete Democrat control at every level of government.

With suffocating regulations, increased violence, and rampant theft plaguing the state, it’s easy to see many are fleeing “The Golden State.”

But as homelessness and crime surge in his state, Governor Gavin Newsom is focused on fishing.

In a bid to solidify his reputation as an environmental champion, Newsom has pledged to fast-track several projects aimed at dismantling dams that have hindered salmon migration in California’s waterways. 

This initiative, touted as a solution to protect endangered fish species and uphold Indigenous cultural beliefs, marks Newsom’s latest endeavor to position himself as a frontrunner in environmental stewardship.

However, critics argue that Newsom’s track record on water policies raises doubts about his true intentions. 

A number of conservation groups have accused the Governor of prioritizing the interests of the agriculture community over environmental conservation, pointing to his administration’s controversial water management decisions.

Despite mounting criticism, Newsom double-downed on prioritizing policies protecting salmon populations over policies addressing the skyrocketing crime in his state. 

He unveiled plans that emphasized his actions related to salmon protections. 

According to Newsom, “When you see a dam being removed and you come back… you see real progress.”

The cornerstone of Newsom’s plan is the removal of aging dams, such as the Scott Dam and Cape Horn Dam, to restore salmon access to critical habitat. 

Some believe these projects, if completed as promised, would mark significant milestones in California’s conservation efforts.

Yet, skepticism persists among environmental advocates who view Newsom’s proposal as mere “smoke and mirrors.” 

Conservation critics argue that the plan fails to address the root cause of the salmon decline: insufficient water flow in rivers and streams. 

Despite allocating millions for habitat restoration projects, Newsom’s approach overlooks the fundamental need for adequate water resources to sustain fish populations.

Moreover, Newsom’s support for voluntary agreements with farmers has drawn criticism from anti-agriculture environmentalists who see it as a concession. 

As Newsom faces scrutiny over his environmental record, the question remains: is he genuinely committed to preserving California’s natural resources, or is he merely pandering to public sentiment for political gain? 

Additionally, is this the most important outlet for his time and the state’s resources? 

While the conservation community of environmentalists and farmers are divided over this plan, the rest of the state argues that action is needed in other areas of concern like the rampant increase of crime.

Business owner in a Democrat stronghold shocked after burning a fortune on this ridiculousness

0

Democrats are making major cities ungovernable.

They refuse to undo their bad policies.

And one business owner in a Democrat stronghold had to spend a fortune on this ridiculous thing.

Citizens in deep-blue areas like New York have to pay absurdly high taxes.

In return for those taxes, one would think they get functional city services like trash pickup.

But that is not the case.

A pizzeria owner in Brooklyn had to pay tens of thousands of dollars of his own money for trash to get picked up in his neighborhood.

Sean Feeney, owner of Fini Pizza in Williamsburg has spent $60,000 since fall of 2022 on garbage.

The New York Post reported that “[i]nstead of flooding 311 with futile complaints about the muck, Feeney opened his cash register to help clean up his section of Williamsburg and now Downtown Brooklyn with an initiative he calls ‘clean streets.’ Since the fall of 2022, he’s dropped a whopping $60,000 of his own revenue on bins, bags and private trash pick-up.”

Feeney explained, “I lived [in Williamsburg] since 2016. I saw the deterioration in cleanliness…It’s unacceptable, it’s embarrassing and it’s disgusting…The mission of Fini is to deliver good days together. We’ve done that through serving delicious pizza and Italian ice. But we also did it by committing 3% of our revenue to invest it back into our neighbors.”

Feeney polled customers on improvements they wanted from the restaurant, and the number one request was a cleaner exterior.

Feeney explained that “94% of our response rate was cleaner streets. When you hear guest after guest, neighbor after neighbor, comment on it, I said, ‘Let’s do something about it.’”

The Post added that Feeney “bought five garbage cans for $220 a pop, painted them with the motto ‘clean streets’ and Fini crown logo, and placed them by nearby businesses.”

Feeney continued, “We noticed overnight that it was cleaner, so we kept adding cans. We maintained them and had pick-up every night.”

Businesses should not have to pay for garbage pickup on top of the taxes they pay, but that has become the reality of New York.

Mayor Eric Adams said that the city would experience cutbacks in light of the migrant crisis brought on by Joe Biden’s border policies.

Feeney added, “I think it’s easy and rational to put the responsibility on government. We didn’t want to waste time even thinking that. We wanted to know what we could do to help.”

Relying on government would have been a waste of time, indeed.

The mayor of Denver made a shocking statement that will leave your jaw wide open

0

Now that the illegal alien crisis is out of control, many mayors of so-called sanctuary cities are in a tough spot.

The progressive leaders are now begging for help as resources dwindle at a rapid pace.

And Denver Mayor Mike Johnston left everyone scratching their heads after this statement.

Denver mayor blames Republicans for crisis

Democrat Mayor Mike Johnston is calling for his Denver constituents to make a “shared sacrifice” in light of the illegal alien crisis.

Speaking at a February 9 press conference, Johnston openly said, “This is a plan for shared sacrifice” after already granting aid and support to at least 35,000 illegal aliens in his city.

Rather than calling to stop the flow of illegals into Denver, Johnston decided to turn his attention to the opposing party.

And, even worse than his calls for his constituents to make “sacrifices,” Johnston went on to blame Republicans for the problem his city is facing.

“I’m here to talk a little bit about the devastating impact of the failure of Republican leadership in Congress this week to pass regime change, and the impact that will have on both city budgets and on services that we can provide for newcomers in the city… we will start to have to greenlight a set of hard decisions on budget reductions across the city to meet those costs that we know will continue to arrive,” he said.

According to a report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released this month, the Biden administration’s immigration policy has shifted family wages and has moved workplace investments to Wall Street, real estate, coastal states, and government.

The report also found that these resource shifts have moved politicians’ focus away from the needs of communities across America.

For example, 20,000 hospital visits made by illegal aliens caused the partial shutdown of one hospital in Denver last month.

But Johnston refuses to criticize Biden and his administration for the problem, while simultaneously referring to the aliens as “newcomers” or “people.”

In a speech made to Democrat voters on February 7, Johnston said, “Today is the day that residents of Denver should be heartbroken and they should be furious because we know we have a humanitarian crisis in this city trying to welcome newcomers to build a new life… We actually had a bipartisan Senate deal that would have addressed the needs that we have.”

He continued to blame Donald Trump, saying that the former president “intervened with House Republican leadership to kill that bill just so this crisis would continue just because he thinks he has a better chance of reelection.”

A wartime stance

In his speech, Mayor Johnston portrayed the crisis as a wartime scenario, even referring to George Bush and September 11.

He said, “Imagine that, folks, an elected official who has taken the oath of office to protect and serve this country, who intentionally damages the country and hurts cities like ours for their own political gain… It would be like George Bush after 9/11 saying, ‘Maybe I’ll stand down security so we get one more terrorist attack that would then increase my chances of reelection.’”

The leftist mayor also called Republicans’ calls to defend the American border as “cynicism” and “mean-spirited.”

He then said that GOP leaders and Trump had an “intent to make Americans suffer and to make cities struggle” and that it should “disqualify you from ever seeking office in this country.”

Yet it’s not the GOP’s calls for closing the borders that are causing Americans and their cities to suffer — it’s the lax policies of an inept administration that would prefer to boast about “equality” and “inclusion” while allowing anyone and everyone to enter this country without following proper protocols and vetting in the meantime.

These so-called Republicans just joined Democrats in another move to erase Virginia history

0

The radical left is working overtime to completely erase America’s history.

They are currently laser focused on toppling every historical place in Virginia.

And these so-called Republicans just joined Democrats in another move to erase Virginia history.

The Virginia State Senate just passed a bill that would bankrupt some of the Commonwealth’s most important and historical sites.

Removing tax exempt status from respected historical groups

The bill in question would remove the tax-exempt status from the Lee-Jackson Foundation, the United Daughter’s of the Confederacy (UDC), and any other non-profit they deem to be associated with history they don’t like.

The move, if it is signed into law by RINO Governor Glenn Youngkin, would bankrupt the groups and force the closure of some of Virginia’s most cherished historical sites.

It would force the closure of Stonewall Jackson’s home, Lee’s childhood mansion, and Confederate veteran museums across the commonwealth.

The Washington Post reported the effort originated from Virginia Beach high schooler Simone Nied, 17, who started advocating for the UDC’s tax exemptions to be stripped two years ago. 

Her requests culminated in bills in both the House of Delegates and Senate to do just that. 

The loss of the tax exemptions will end up on the desk of Governor Glenn Youngkin and many are concerned he will sign the measure.

But the worst part of the effort is that it is only the first step in efforts by the radical left to erase history and force the power of the state onto any group the left opposes.

Already calls for more

In fact, in a recent Virginia Mercury commentary, radical leftist Samantha Willis doesn’t just applaud the move to erase history, she urges the legislature to do even more.

In her racist, anti-Virginia screed, Willis says its time to target even more institutions.

As she writes, “While we’re considering organizations that don’t deserve to skip out on paying taxes, I’d suggest some Virginia churches be next up for review. Specifically, the ones that discriminate against LGBTQ+ people, allow politics to infiltrate the pulpit and destroy family relationships.” 

She goes on, “But just as legislators’ proposal to end the UDC’s tax-free days exemplifies, reexamining the activities of wayward churches would be another opportunity to seriously consider if we’re using our state’s fiscal resources the best and fairest way we can.”

Unfortunately for Ms. Willis, her proposal would immediately end the tax-exempt status if the most active political churches in Virginia – i.e. black churches who have long been at the forefront of political action.

Of course those black churches are not the target of Willis’s rath.

She wants to target only conservative churches that stick to Biblical truths.

In her warped world, and in the world of the radical left there is no room for discussion or opposite views.

The Senate Bill passed 23-16 with so-called Republicans David Suetterlein and Richard Stuart joining in the Democrat effort to destroy Virginia history.

Now its time for all concerned Virginians to contact Governor Youngkin and urge him to veto this travesty of a bill.

Residents are up in arms after Atlanta squatter schemers turned a neighborhood into a hellscape

0

Criminal prosecution is willfully discouraged in America’s deep blue cities.

That’s something those who commit crimes know all too well, and it has devastating consequences for everyone else.

And Atlanta squatter schemers have turned a neighborhood into a complete hellscape.

The criminal justice system in Atlanta isn’t working.

That’s been the experience of countless property owners and landlords in the city.

The problem is multi-faceted.

Joe Biden’s lousy economy and persistent inflation have driven housing costs through the roof.

Average rent in Atlanta has risen 34% since the start of the Covid pandemic to nearly $1900 per month.

Squatters rights run amok in the city of Atlanta

The supply of affordable housing isn’t keeping up with the demand and squatters count on the fact that they can’t be easily dislodged because of a lengthy and convoluted legal process.

This creates a snowball effect where each illegal occupation means there’s one less home available for a family in need of quality, single-family rental housing and that simply drives up housing costs even further.

With the power of the internet accessible on every cell phone it’s never been easier for lawbreakers to scour online listings of vacant buildings.

Scammers even set up fraudulent listings and create fake lease agreements on social media.

Once a squatter has moved in, it may take up to three months to get a court hearing for an eviction and an additional three months to get the freeloaders legally forced out.

The problem has gotten so out of hand that it is impacting a jaw-dropping 1,200 homes in the city.

It’s gotten so bad that one homeowner told the New York Post that he is afraid to go on vacation as his neighborhood has been taken over by squatters.

He worries that if his house was found to be vacant, people could simply move right in.

It’s gotten so bad that Simon Frost, CEO of Tiber Capital Group, wrote to local authorities begging for help.

Violence, illegal activities, and threats to neighbors and children are rising rapidly

Frost said, “Unlawful occupants often brandish weapons and threaten neighbors, including children. This problem is rapidly growing. We are concerned about the impact that this is having on safety and livability of our local neighborhoods.”

Back in October, a truly jaw-dropping incident occurred where squatters transformed a home into an illegal strip club involving weekend parties and even horses on the property.

An incredulous neighbor told WSB-TV, “They would get live horses. One day they had live horses.”

A SWAT team was later dispatched to the house where two stolen cars, stolen credit cards and weapons were seized.

Four people were eventually arrested over the matter.

When deployed Lt. Colonel Dahlia Daure returned home last year after serving her country she found out that a man had moved into her house as it was in the process of being sold.

She told WSB-TV, “I felt violated. Had I not been serving my country; I would have been in my home.”

A neighbor commented on the sad state of affairs, saying, “Is this even America anymore? We are homeowners and we can’t even do anything about trespassers?”

In the end, all of this is one more reason for the everyday law-abiding not to move to Democrat-run large cities, and if you are already there, it may be wise to get out while you still can.

This “woke” rising star for Democrats could head to jail for her jaw-dropping actions

0

She was riding high in her political career and achieved national attention.

But it all came crashing down after a series of bad decisions.

Now Disgraced Baltimore District Attorney Marilyn Mosby may be headed to prison for a long time.

Marilyn Mosby became known all across the country after the death of Freddie Gray in 2015.

Gray died while in police custody after he was arrested and his death sparked rioting and looting across the city of Baltimore.

Fifteen police officers were injured in the riots and there were 34 arrests as a result of the civil unrest.

While Mosby had filed charges against six police officers involved in the arrest, no officers were charged in the arrest and death in custody of Gray.

Mosby to Baltimore residents: Sorry about that mess I’m going to leave.  Good luck with it!

Mosby’s left-wing, soft-on-crime policies were directly correlated with skyrocketing crime in the city.

The situation grew even more dire when Mosby announced she would stop prosecuting prostitution, drug possession and traffic violations.

If turning neighborhoods into crime-ridden cesspools wasn’t enough of a betrayal, Mosby made things look even worse when she plotted to flee the area after paving the way for the crime spike.

According to The Baltimore Sun, prosecutors say that in May 2020, Mosby took advantage of the first coronavirus relief bill by seeking a $40,000 withdrawal from her city retirement account. 

Mosby blamed the withdrawal on hardship related to the coronavirus pandemic, but didn’t make sense because her salary actually increased from $238,000 to $248,000 during the year in question.

Mosby used a large portion of the retirement money on a rental property near Orlando, Florida.

But when she purchased the property, she lied about having a federal tax lien and falsely claimed that the property was a second home in order to receive a lower interest rate.

Mosby had also claimed that she was gifted money by her then-husband to take out a loan on the property to get a lower interest rate, but prosecutors showed she transferred the funds to him and then sent the money back to herself.

Prosecutor: She knew better

At trial, the prosecutor made the case that Mosby lied on the mortgage applications, telling the court, “She was the top prosecutor in the city of Baltimore and oversaw hundreds of lawyers. You know what prosecutors know a lot about? Fraud. Mortgage fraud.”

This week she was found guilty of mortgage fraud for lying on financial documents.

Mosby had previously been found guilty of perjury last November.

The Daily Mail reported that Mosby began crying as jurors began by clearing her of a similar charge, lying on an application form to get a mortgage on a second property in Kissimmee, Florida.

The crying worsened when she was convicted of the other charge.

Mosby could face up to thirty years in prison for the mortgage fraud and up to an additional ten years for the perjury convictions.

Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
