One of the common features of socialist leaders is incompetence, and one of the best examples is Has-Been POTUS Obama, whose cool demeanor was actually a cover for just that — an inability to make decisions (other than those dictated by Marxist doctrine, of course). Bad leaders don’t just make bad decisions; bad leaders, frozen by fear and incompetence, make no decisions.
Commonsense, of course, is almost a tautology in this regard: when crime is soaring, that’s precisely the wrong time to reduce police funding and manpower, but as De Blasio firmly believes that the NYPD is the problem — and has always done so — it makes perfect sense (to him) to reduce police effectiveness, whether by funding or by demoralization (which, paradoxically, he has done to perfection).
The fool still has eighteen months in power before he’s term-limited out of office, and even then, the list of replacements, such as it is, seems to indicate that his successor will be of the same ilk.
As anyone with a brain can see where this is heading, and there’s no Rudy Giuliani to ride to the rescue. New York is sunk, and will become no different from all the other third-World socialist armpits around the world.
Given NYFC’s malevolent influence on the rest of the country (gun control, failed social policies, out-of-control welfare spending, the aforementioned crime wave and the New York Times) has been a cancer on American society for too long, and prudence would suggest that the federal government steps aside completely and lets it implode just as Detroit, Chicago and the other cities have done. The denizens of the Big Apple have voted themselves democratically [sic] into this situation and, to paraphrase H.L. Mencken’s Seventh Maxim, they deserve to get their comeuppance, good and hard.
Sadly, all the bad things about New York are just as prevalent in Washington D.C., a fact which De Blasio and all the other mayoral Marxists are counting on for their salvation.
Dunno if anyone’s said this already, but here it is:
Haven’t done one of these for a while, so:
A 72-year-old homeowner shot and killed an alleged intruder he discovered in his Nashville, Tennessee, home Wednesday morning.
WSMV reports the incident occurred around 5:30 a.m., when the homeowner, Henry Schuster, returned to his house after eating breakfast.
Schuster told police he noticed the screen from his kitchen window had been removed, making him suspect someone had made entry into the home through it. Schuster then pulled his gun and conducted a room-to-room check through the house.
When he entered the bathroom 27-year-old Taylor Lowery was allegedly there and “lunged at him grabbing for the gun.”
Schuster responded by shooting Lowery, fatally wounding him.

You know it’s going to end well for people like Our Hero when the cops come into the room, take one look at the corpus delicti and say, “Yep. Thought it might be him.”
Note that the news report doesn’t say if The Late Choirboy was Black or White, which doesn’t matter, of course: scum is scum, and people who need killing need killing, regardless of race, creed or color.
All violent criminals’ lives don’t matter.
From Lawrence Person:
“Antifa is riots is #BlackLivesMatter is #DefundThePolice is Marxist revolution is cancel culture is civilian disarmament is George Soros is mainstream media bias is the Democratic Party.”
Sounds about right. An all-embracing umbrella of awful.
Oh, this looks like fun:
Recently Breitbart News reported that six eBay employees were named in federal charges for intimidating critics of the company with a cyberstalking terror campaign, now a recent article from the New York Times outlines how many Silicon Valley companies have been using similar intimidation tactics for years.
The Times states that Silicon Valley companies regularly employ “trust and safety” teams staffed with former police officers and national intelligence analysts. Their work includes protecting executives and intellectual property, preventing blackmail attempts, and watching out for fraud and theft. But, in some cases, Silicon Valley’s intense focus on reputation and brand can lead these teams to take excessive action.
Read the whole article for details. Beware the Red Curtain Of Blood (RCOB) that may come over your eyes, as it did mine.
Looks like some corporate executives need a good ball-kicking.
And by the way? The inability of law enforcement to deal with this shit properly is what enables the Tony Sopranos of this world to flourish. And even without that, bullying only works on fearful people.
Don’t be fearful. Just be prepared to be enraged.
