Sometimes Pain Is The Best Teacher

Sometimes people only learn when their mistake causes them some discomfort. Pick up a hot lid from a pot and you quickly learn that you should check or use a pot holder.

It seems that this might be the best approach for liberal run cities that have been in steady decline from decades of liberal “leadership”. Baltimore is one such city but there are plenty of others. Charm City, as Baltimore is known, is a cesspool of crime and liberal failure on display each and every day. Oh there are a few things that shine to be sure but even the sparkle of those things begins to fade as liberal ideology eventually ruins all that it touches.

Baltimore was once a thriving city but decades of liberalism and the dependents produced by that ideology have obliterated all sense of normalcy and forced it into an animal kingdom where thugs prey upon those whose circumstances will not allow them to leave.

Baltimore celebrated its 100th murder by firearm before the month of April came to a close. A city that has bought into the liberal idea of gun bans, needle exchanges, blame and victim status for its dependents had 100 gun murders in 4 months in a city that is part of a liberal state that has strict gun control. This is not supposed to happen. People are supposed to be enslaved on the liberal plantation and do what they are told so they can get their meal cards, their welfare checks and their free cell phones.

The city and its liberal leadership can’t figure out what is going on. The mayor says there are too many guns not even considering that the guns are not the problem and what she and her city has is too many CRIMINALS. I would wager a paycheck that the people murdered in Baltimore, the 100, were not murdered by people with legally owned firearms. These people were not murdered by others who have a clean criminal record or who have never interacted with the criminal justice system.

But to the hapless mayor the problem is too many guns.

The mayor ignores that the city spat in the face of its police force when its previous mayor gave a stand down order and allowed rioters to destroy the city (this led to her political demise) after the death of a career criminal while in police custody and the malicious prosecution of six officers by the State’s Attorney for Baltimore. All six cases were ruled in the officer’s favor. There are questions in my mind about some of the events leading to the death of that career criminal but no matter what happened the city handled it poorly. It was handled so poorly the State National Guard had to be activated to get things in order.

Now the new mayor, upset about the increased number of murders and clueless as to their cause, wants the federal government to help. She wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to assist in keeping order in Baltimore and has been in talks with the Baltimore field office.

Since when does a city mayor communicate with the federal government for assistance? The city communicates with the state and the state communicates with the feds. That is how things should work. The mayor has bypassed the normal channel and ignored resources the state might have to get help from the federal government, the very federal government that is run by a man the mayor and her liberal colleagues cannot stand.

By the way, it is worth noting that Baltimore, in addition to being a Petri dish where welfare dependents are grown and released to suckle at the teat of government in return for votes every four years, is also a sanctuary city. The city ignores federal immigration law, turns a blind eye to illegal immigrants and then expects the federal government to come in and help with the problems.

Hell, I think the city has directed its prosecutors to take care in what they pursue if there is a chance the person is illegal because it might mean deportation. Let me interpret; ignore the petty lawbreakers and their crimes so they do not get deported. Yes folks, this is how stupid the liberals are but they do have some nerve.

It takes a lot of it to ask for help solving the problems you caused from people who you do not like and who you will not cooperate with.

I am sure this should all go through the state but the Trump Administration, if it decides to help and let the FBI assist, should force the city to cooperate with immigration laws. It should force the city to get rid of the sanctuary policies and start working to get the illegals out.

If the city declines then it can clean up its own mess which might be the best thing anyway. If the city is forced to deal with the pain of its policies perhaps those liberals will learn from that pain.

Who am I kidding? I am sure they can continue to blame too many guns as people continue to die, police officers continue to depart and citizens fortunate enough to escape do just that.

Because, you know, in liberal reality their policies are not the problem and all they ever need is a little more money or a little more legislation that infringes on the rights of others.

You know, for the children.

Pain is a great teacher but you at least have to have the ability and desire to learn…

Will The Real Barry Obama Please Stand Up?

Just some thoughts on Obama and his response to police officers who have been murdered at the hands of terrorists from the terror group, Black Lives Matter.

Before I get to his words I would like to point out that Obama is either very stupid, blind, or deliberately ignorant of reality. Every time one of these things happens the murderer tells us why he did it (or tells us why he is going to do it) but Obama (or should we call him oblivious) says “we don’t really know the killer’s motivation.” It is going on now with the cop murders and it happens when there is a terror attack by ISIS or some other Islamic terrorist. They scream we hate America and we are doing this in the name of ISIS and Allah to avenge (fill in the blank) and Obama tells us we don’t know why they did it…

Hell, the guy could hire a plane to tow a banner saying why he did it, put it on all social media, give interviews with the media and send out cards in the mail and Obama would tell us we don’t know why he did it…

Of course, Obama is always ready to tell us why cops did what they did long before any facts are in. He might say they acted stupidly….

Now on to the response from Obama on the latest terror attack by BLM.

Obama said that we need to stop using inflammatory rhetoric:

We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric. We don’t need careless accusations thrown around to score political points or to advance an agenda. We need to temper our words and open our hearts … all of us.

This would be the same Obama who said this about how he would counter Republican attacks:

If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.

I am pretty sure that this remark would be considered inflammatory and designed to score political points…

But, but, but Obama is a great guy. Look at how he supported the Dallas police officers by referring to himself a lot and by telling us how cops can be better and that guns are the problem…

He even had some words about attacking police officers after the BLM terrorist murdered three in Baton Rouge:

Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible.

Obama is the one who has blood on his hands. He has blamed the police for these issues and he has been one of the first to blame them when a black person is shot by police (most times the shooting is warranted). He is the one who fans the flames of racism and victimhood. He might tell people that attacks on police are an attack on all of us but he blames the police for this mess and says they need to admit they are the problem:

There are legitimate issues that have been raised, and there’s data and evidence to back up the concerns that are being expressed by these protesters.

And if police organizations and departments acknowledge that there’s a problem and there’s an issue, then that, too, is going to contribute to real solutions. And, as I said yesterday, that is what’s going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot safer. It is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them and that the kind of rancor and suspicion that exists right now is alleviated.

You cops got that? You have a problem and you have to admit it in order to be safe. This kind of talk gives the radical BLM terrorists their cues. They hear what Obama said and they don’t hear cops saying they have a problem so to them it means they can attack because Obama said cops can’t be safer until they fess up.

Obama has caused a lot of this strife. He has fanned the flames of racism and he has encouraged the violence that is taking place. He started an open season on law enforcement and his words still reflect his belief that they are the problem.

It is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

Keep in mind though, the violence you see is caused by liberals who follow the ideology of Obama and his ilk. Any violence at the Republican convention will be caused by liberals, not the Republicans…

God help the US because we sure need it after eight years of Satan in the White House.

Looks Like Trump Is On To Something

Before I start I do not support Donald Trump for president. I have not made up my mind as to whom I will support but I have eliminated some folks. Trump is on the list that I can’t support because of his anti-Second Amendment views.

But he does have some views that are receiving a lot of attention right now. His views on illegal immigration appear to be spot on and those views have caused the establishment politicians from both parties to come out with sabers drawn.

Trump is correct when he says that rapists and murderers are coming here. He would be absolutely correct to say that 100% of the people who come here illegally are criminals because they broke the law to get here.

The establishment can’t have any of this. This will put in jeopardy the voters liberals need and the cheap labor establishment Republicans want.

The reality is that our immigration system is broken and the last thing we need are policies that allow people to stay and encourage more to come. Illegal aliens are causing all kinds of problems here and deporting them does not seem to matter because they come right back. Without a nearly impenetrable wall they will continue to come back. They do not mind being arrested and sent home because they know they can come back.

Others just game the system by going to sanctuary cities where they know they will be protected.

FUN FACT: All of the Democrats running for the presidency support sanctuary cities.

A young woman taking pictures on a pier in San Francisco was murdered by an illegal who has a number of felony convictions and has been deported five times. This man was released by the local sheriff because of the sanctuary policies of San Francisco.

This senseless murder could have been prevented if the government did its job and if cities were not allowed to offer sanctuary. How the hell do they get to go against federal law like this when Arizona was slapped down for upholding federal law because it is not their job, it belongs to the feds?

An illegal in Texas who had been deported four times beat his wife to death with a hammer.

Why was he here?

The latest news involves an illegal who had been deported six times. He was the driver in a hit and run that injured two children and an adult. He admitted to being high on marijuana at the time.

This latest happened in Arizona. Perhaps if the federal government had not sued that state over its immigration laws (which mirrored federal laws) this illegal alien would not have been here to harm these three people.

Obama’s plan on immigration is working but only with respect to getting millions more Democrat voters into the country. In every other aspect it is failing the very people he is charged with protecting.

But to people like Obama it does not matter. He and his family have armed guards and his children go to private school that also has armed guards.

The incident in San Francisco happened in Nancy Pelosi’s neck of the woods. She could not care any less because it was not her daughter that was shot down.

It is time to get a handle on immigration and shut down the flow of illegals.

Trump does not have my support for president but he is correct on the issue of immigration and the Republican field would be wise to listen and learn.

Then again, given the recent history of Republicans begging us to elect them so they can carry out our wishes only to stab us in our collective backs it is quite possible the candidates will tell us what we want to hear with no intention of addressing the issue.

It is long past time for the states to ignore the federal government and conduct their own business by arresting and holding illegals (while not infringing on federal authority in the matter). It is an absolute must for states to ignore the feds on items that belong solely to the states.
