FBI background checks for gun purchases surge 136% in June

God Bless America. The FBI has recorded that background checks for firearm purchases last month surged to 7.8 million, up 136%YoY. The highest number recorded in 20 years.

A survey done by the National Shooting Sports Foundation found dealers project around 40% of sales are to first-time buyers, an increase from the average.

Does this surge suggest voting intentions? Surely those buying guns won’t be supporting a party that backs defunding the police and has leaders like Speaker Pelosi who flippantly dismissed the destruction of public and private property by rioters as “they will do what they do!

Cuomo uses Marxist propaganda to push his leadership credentials

NY Governor Cuomo seems to be channeling Chairman Mao with this propaganda poster celebrating the successes of NY State during the pandemic.

Was there an adult in the room when this poster was conceived? Seriously, is this lifting the bar of political debate and raising the credentials of the Democratic Party platform?

New York State Leads Again”? In which areas? Deaths? Infections? Both in absolute and relative terms NY State tops the country.

Where is the reference to sending people infected with COVID-19 to nursing homes? Tell the truth? Wasn’t it Gov Cuomo who ordered those stats be covered up after it was learnt of the devastating consequences? Hmm…”Follow the facts“?

Why does he take potshots at states like Florida which have 1/8th death toll per capita as New York State?

Boyfriend Cliff‘? Apparently it refers to his daughter’s boyfriend but who knows?

Had to throw a jab at Trump in there. A rainbow flag too.

Perhaps the ultimate joke is the tag line to “Forget the Politics.” A bit hard when the whole poster sets out to make a political statement which pretty much perfectly sums up the opposite of reality in NY State.

We remind readers to look up our piece on ‘Am I a Despot or Not‘ which chronicles the ludicrous measures taken by mostly Democrat mayors and governors during coronavirus which we don’t think will be forgotten by constituents.

In any event, Cuomo has exposed just how in denial he is having to resort to such juvenile stunts

Get woke, turn into a joke?

It seems that in the midst of announcing the retirement of the Redskins name, many others have been filing trademarks on what the new team might be called creating additional headaches for the owners.

Martin McCaulay has trademarked over 40 potential names and to maintain his trademark and be in compliance he sells merchandise for those names instead of merely squatting.

We don’t believe it was ever a good PR exercise for the franchise or the NFL but it just proves that getting woke has a price.

Given all of the money the Redskins will spend on PR companies, logo designers and merchandising experts, imagine if that money was actually deployed to programs assisting the very indigenous communities who won’t benefit one iota from a name change.

Have the cancel culture considered this? The fact that Native Americans are more likely to die of alcohol-related causes, diabetes or tuberculosis than others. Or that this community has the highest rate of intimate partner violence in the U.S. and twice the risk of child abuse and neglect?

The only thing the name change will do is make woke liberals feel better about themselves. We watch with interest to see whether any dent will be made in these ugly stats

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

Segregated in Seattle

This is truly sick. How much more of this racial segregation malarkey can Americans tolerate? What are we on about?

The City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email last month inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.

Christopher Rufo wrote an article in the City Journal after he received the training pack under a freedom of information request. His piece can be found here.

Rufo notes, “trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color.

Once the diversity trainers have established this basic conceptual framework, they encourage white employees to “practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism” and work on “undoing [their] own whiteness.” As part of this process, white employees must abandon their “white normative behavior” and learn to let go of their “comfort,” “physical safety,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.”

This insanity is off the charts. We’re surprised rats in face cages aren’t part of the process.

It isn’t the first time this type of brainwashing has hit Seattle. Starbucks also indulged in this Marxist rubbish two years ago after a store called the police on two non paying customers who refused to leave that just happened to be people of colour.

We wrote,

Starbucks closed 8,000 stores on Tuesday and reached out to activists and bias training experts to put a curriculum together for its 175,000 workers to prevent “unconscious bias

…While training staff is never a bad thing, do the human resources/ PR department at Starbucks honestly think that explicitly educating white people about their racism (if it truly exists on any scale to warrant the conscious bias based indoctrination) will do anything other than alienate more customers? What a smear on the majority of clientele and staff who no doubt exercise decency when transacting their skim milk doubleshot latte.”

These diversity trainers are absolutely the last people qualified to dictate to others about society.

Note Seattle has been Democrat for the last 30 years. Mayor Jenny Durkan was the one who called CHAZ a “summer of loveuntil it threatened her $7m mansion.

Good on Goya CEO for standing up to the cancel culture mob

Goya Foods deserves every success. CEO Bob Unanue praised Trump which caused several unhinged Democrats to openly encourage people to boycott the brand. How easily they forgot when Unanue helped Michelle Obama with her healthy eating initiative in 2012.

Failed Democrat presidential primary candidate Julian Castro wrote on Twitter,

@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations. Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) also joined in. She tweeted,

Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.

The Democrats are clinically insane. So deeply entrenched is their hatred of Trump that even when an American citizen from a minority background exercises his free speech – which disobeys their doctrine of what he should say – they retaliate like this.

We think Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley sums up the mentality of the Democratic platform when she said,

“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.

We truly hope Americans rally to the cause and boost Goya’s sales to let other corporations know that having the guts to stand up to the mob actually rewards their bottom line rather than panic that it might be boycotted.

These Democrats have absolutely none of the “right stuff” to run a country.
