Pre & Post COVID-19 voter registration trends

Democrat-leaning pollsters, TargetSmart, note that there has been a shift in the trend of voters registering for the Democrats & Republicans.

In Maine, 59% of new voters registered as Democrats pre-coronavirus — but only 40% have done so in the months since.

Democratic Party declines were also seen in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania according to TargetSmart.

Politico reported that in the swing state of Iowa, new voters helped the GOP retake the statewide lead in all voter registrations last month.

We are not talking big numbers to be fair but is this shift indicative of the manner in which the Democrats have conducted their behaviour with respect to lock-downs and lack of proactivity surrounding the George Floyd protests (and riots)?

We will be interested to see how these trends change as we inch closer to the election.

Petition to recall Seattle mayor approved by judge

The Recall Jenny Durkan campaign to remove the Democrat mayor of Seattle is underway after getting a King County Superior Court judge’s approval. Mayor Durkan was the individual who said CHAZ was an acceptable form of protest, even calling it a “summer of love” right up until the mob came to her $7m mansion. Never mind the deaths, the violence, destruction of private property, rapes, forcing whites to pay blacks $10 and demanding a whole host of supplies from the very democracy they wanted to overthrow. Our posts on Durkan can be seen here.

We view this as a good benchmark for anti-Democrat sentiment, especially given that Seattle and Washington are hard core blue states. Hillary Clinton garnered 52.5% of the vote vs Trump’s 36.8% in the 2016 election. Durkan won 56.25% of the 2017 mayoral election.

The Recall Durkan website notes,

Mayor Durkan’s complete negligence in protecting the rights and safety of the people of Seattle has made a clear case that she is no longer fit to govern.

Together, let’s keep making history and #FireTheMayor…

…For our petition to elicit a recall, the petitioners will need 56,202 physical signatures.

Over 36,000 have signed the change.org petition in the two days it has been approved.

Surely there are enough centre-of-the-road Democrats with common sense to join the movement to oust such an out of touch elected official.

When NYC residents took the law into their own hands in 1979

We’ve written quite a bit lately on the utterly hopeless NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and his weakness in tackling crime.

We’ve written in the past about vigilantism in NYC several years ago and we see that inevitably, NY citizens will start to take the law into their own hands. They will have little choice.

The truth is the Guardian Angels have already returned, since deBlasio took office in 2014.

If we go back to the 1970s, when crime was surging, NYC’s population fell from 7,894,862 to 7,071,639 over the next decade.

What caused this? In the 1970s, NYC faced problems with the budget and by 1975 was teetering on bankruptcy. This led to shedding of public service jobs including the fire department and the NYPD. The fall in foot patrols in NYC saw crime soar. Homicide rates climbed as follows:

1960: 6.19 per 100,000 residents

1970: 14.14

1980: 25.60

1990: 30.66

2000: 8.44

2010: 6.53

2019: 3.75

2020: 4.26 (6 month run rate)

At this stage homicide in NYC is well off long term rates despite the sharp % increases seen since the death of George Floyd). One wonders whether the history of the 1980s will return as de Blasio cuts funding to the NYPD when the number of cops on the beat fell substantially. Will residents start moving to other parts of the country and hollow out the tax base?

We found this document interesting, especially the following statement:

While the NYPD has made approximately 40,000 fewer overall arrests so far this year compared with last year, gun arrests year-to-date as of July 5 are 1,679 vs. 1,683. We have also seen the impacts of legislative mandates sending offenders no longer eligible for bail back to the streets where they are being regularly rearrested and contributing to overall crime in the city.

Who knew? Now that NYPD cops are quitting in record numbers and new recruits aren’t being hired to replace them, what could possibly go wrong?

Expect to see more stories about the Guardian Angels in NYC as residents fill the hole that the virtue signaling segregationist mayor has opened.

To think how the mayor was so willing to use the NYPD as a Gestapo to fine residents for disobeying stay-at-home orders. Recall deBlasio even encouraged NYers to dob in their neighbors.

#WalkAway video highlights exodus from Democratic Party

Warrant served on St Louis couple that defended their home

St Louis law enforcement has served a warrant on the McCloskeys, the couple that defended their home and confiscated the automatic rifle that was used to defend it after 300 protestors trespassed on private property. We wrote about activist DAs here.

How wonderful that the government decided to treat them as the common criminals even though McCloskey had an official permit for the weapon and has no history of committing any felonies.

Presumably the Democratic Mayor and DA can celebrate if the McCloskey family home burns to the ground. They have since had to hire private security.

Talk about government overreach. This is what the Democrats are signaling they want for ordinary, hard working Americans. Shut up and fall into line.

As Mark D Robison once said, “I’m the majority…yet every time something happens we’re the last ones considered and the first ones punished.”

NYC Scanner – what NYers are really thinking of Mayor de Blasio

The NYC Scanner Twitter handle denotes, “Everything NYC in live time 24/7 — Send pics & info to NYScanner@nybuff.org

It tells the sad tale of violence in NYC as Mayor Bill de Blasio merrily paints BLM murals in front of Trump Tower at the same time he is requesting $7.4bn from the man he is trolling. He has even co-named a street ‘Black Lives Matter Boulevard.

NYC Scanner conducted the following survey of Bill de Blasio and whether he’d allow ‘Blue Lives Matter’ outside of Police Plaza.

bluelives

60% said he hates the NYPD. NYC Scanner followed up with this to prove it.

DeBlasio paints “Black Lives Matters” on 5th Ave this morning, but this man painted anti-police slurs all over the NYC Surrogate’s Courthouse on Chambers Street. Multiple NYPD Officers watched – but were unable to arrest anyone as per orders. @SBANYPD @NYPDnews

Did the black lives matter to three unarmed black men cornered in the Bronx and shot in cold blood by two other black men?

Did the black life matter of a man shot dead crossing the street with his 7yo daughter?

Maybe we should just let the NYPD tell de Blasio exactly what they think of his stupid policies in this video.

Democrat mayor issues senseless apology

Mayor Paul Bodeur has tweeted out an apology to residents in Melrose, Massachusetts for a police officer who wrote “All Lives Matter” on a traffic sign.

Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle, said he will be investigating the action. His public statement is so pathetic. Do residents want time wasted on rubbish like this? Demanding signs get approved by the boss?

It is amazing that Democrat mayors are actually wasting time over something so trivial and making grandiose apologies to residents who probably didn’t pay it any mind, much less took any offence, while launching needless investigations into hate speech to pillory an officer who only sought “inclusion”. Which begs the question why traffic signs are being used for propaganda instead of road safety?

Welcome to 2020 and the Democratic Party platform – segregation. Good to see it is staying true to its roots that are wedded in identity politics. Perhaps the mayor should suggest the police chief put up “ACAB – All Cops Are Bad” to be in step with the cancel culture and appease the mob to promote progressivism.

It is really getting too stupid. Perhaps the sign should read, “Mayor, drink cement and harden up!” We’re sure Melrose residents would see much more value in that.

NYC mayor helps paint BLM outside Trump Tower while gun crime soars

As shootings in NYC skyrocket triple digit percentages and NYPD officers quit at records levels, hard-left Democrat NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio decided to join in the divisive fun of painting “Black Lives Matter” outside Trump Tower with Rev Al Sharpton.

Did the mayor forget the BLM chants of “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon” or “What do we want? Dead cops!! When do we want them? Now!” when their supporters referred to the NYPD?

Apart from lacking originality, perhaps the mayor might have considered calling DC Mayor Muriel Bowser who would have told him she was heavily criticized by BLM leaders for “appeasing white liberals” with her virtue signaling mural outside the White House.

We remind readers of the Marxist roots of the Black Lives Matter organization which has outsourced its donation administration to a group which has a convicted terrorist as a board member.

DeBlasio is no stranger to sick stunts. Early last year he bathed skyscrapers in pink lights to celebrate late term abortion legislation. According to a NYC Health Department report released in May 2018, between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. Shouldn’t all black lives matter? Compare that to the 11 blacks shot and killed by the NYPD in 2019, all of them in possession of a deadly weapon.

We wonder if DeBlasio would like to explain how he thinks he will advance the fortunes of the black community by stunts that alienate other groups and policies that all but guarantee to make them less safe.

As we keep saying, the more that liberals allow their derangement to be exposed to sunlight, the more the ranks of the silent majority will swell to reject the antisocial behavior the left champions in November. Keep up the good work.
