    You know what's on my mind today? Guns.

    The only reason guns are on my mind is because Biden was talking guns today. Specifically he said:


    He then added, “No one needs to have a weapon that can fire over 30, 40, 50, even up to 100 rounds, unless you think the deer are wearing Kevlar vests or something.”

    I've never owned a gun in my life but after witnessing angry black mobs attacking white folks at a restaurant and going to white neighborhoods acting a fool, I'm think people need guns that can fire over 30, 40, 50 and even 100 rounds. Did I mention that democrat mayors and governor's allowed white businesses to be looted and burned by the black mob?


    Crime is way up across America thanks to democrats war on the police. Biden made a pathetic attempt to calm folks down today because he knows he's weak on the issue.

    Don't let them talk your guns. They're gonna try.

    Crime is becoming one of America's biggest political issues


    (CNN)The post-reopening murder wave is about to become a major subject of conversation. Murders have gone up in 2021, and the summer -- high season for homicide -- is just getting started.


    This new societal crisis is already turning political:
    President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland announced new measures Wednesday to respond to thist rising crime wave.
    Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a former New York Police Department captain, is leading the pack of New York mayoral primary candidates as counting entered the ranked-choice phase. He ran a law and order campaign far from the "defund the police" chants that echoed among liberals on Twitter last year.
    Republicans are likely to carry the perception of the nation's cities overrun by crime into the 2022 midterm elections.
    The political divide on crime will grow as Biden and Democrats focus on guns, which are involved in most murders, as the root of the problem, and Republicans blame liberal mayors and governors and lax attitudes toward policing. "We will make sure you can't sell death and mayhem on our streets," Biden said on Wednesday. "It is an outrage. It has to end and we will end it."
    Violent crime is up. Violent crime and murder rates are certainly up around the country compared to recent years (crime, more generally, is often down). The FBI should release final data for 2020 in the fall, although this year it has changed the way it collects data on violent crime, so it will be difficult to compare year over year. Murder rates, already creeping up from a low of 4.4 murders per 100,000 people in 2014, certainly increased during and now after the pandemic.
    The national murder rate of around five murders per 100,000 people in 2019 -- is about half its all time recorded high in 1980, when more than 10 Americans for every 100,000 were murdered. Covid, by comparison, has killed more than 183 Americans per 100,000 people, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
    We do know that murders rose dramatically in many places in 2020. Cities, which maintain their own data, have shown sharp increases.


    In New York City, there was a 97% increase, from 777 murders in 2019, to 1,531 in 2020, according to City data. This year is off to an even worse start. There have been 191 murders in New York, as of June 13, according to the NYPD. That's a 13.5% increase over 2020.
    Still much lower than the '90s in New York. These numbers, while horrifying, are still far below the more-than 2,000 annual murders New York saw in the early 1990s. Other types of violent crime are even more reduced.
    The rise is everywhere. It's not just US cities seeing a rise in murders.
    "This is an American problem," said Jeff Asher, a Louisiana-based data analyst for AH Datalytics. He tracks murder rates in 72 cities and has seen a rise almost everywhere.

    Joe Biden is in deep shit on the issue of crime. He's not gonna do anything to stop it.



    US crime rise draws fears of ‘bloody summer’, calls for more cops

    New YorFears of a bloody summer have become a focal point of New York City’s mayoral race as residents go to the polls in primaries to choose Democratic and Republican candidates amid rising violent crime across the US.
    Homicides and other violent crimes that shot up in 2020 are continuing their national rise, and President Joe Biden will speak on Wednesday about what he “is going to do to help address” rising crime, especially gun violence, “as we’ve seen around the country it is a concern of many Americans”, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday.

    Gun crime has seen a sharp rise in major metropolitan areas, and especially in the nation’s largest city, New York. Shooting incidents rose 73 percent in May 2021 over the previous year, as the COVID-19 pandemic recedes and New York begins to reopen, according to New York Police Department numbers cited by CNN.
    This is weighing on voters minds, according to an NY1/Ipsos poll released June 7 (PDF). The poll found that 46 percent of voters view crime as their primary concern, outpacing affordable housing at 45 percent and COVID-19 at 32 percent.
    Democrat Eric Adams, a former New York Police Department captain and president of the Brooklyn borough, has argued he is best-suited to address rising crime rates, and voters appear to be listening.

    An Ipsos poll released June 21 found surveyed likely voters viewed Adams as the best candidate to handle the crime increases.


    The poll also suggested Adams was leading the pack of 11 Democratic candidates with 28 percent support.


    Though far short of the 50 percent threshold needed to win outright, Adams is still well-positioned under New York City’s new ranked voting system, which allows New Yorkers to choose candidates based on preferences, then knocks out the lowest-ranking candidates in several rounds until a winner is selected.

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    Senators on both sides of the aisle said Wednesday evening there's an agreement with White House officials and 10 senators on a bipartisan infrastructure deal, with senators planning to meet with President Joe Biden at the White House on Thursday to discuss it.

    GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said it's fully paid for and offsets the new spending. The total cost is $1.2 trillion over eight years, with $579 billion in new spending.
