Why are so many cities, led by liberal democrats, such “hot messes?”

Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis, Memphis, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Minneapolis, just to name a few.

So what do all of these crime-ridden cities have in common?

They all have inept democrat “leadership…,” if you can call it leadership.

history 7

And along with that inept democrat “leadership” comes inept democrat policies, and a total disregard for any kind of fiscal responsibility, and a disregard for any kind of responsibility for that matter.

history 3

What we have here is basically idiots leading the ignorant.

This problem is created when the majority of these cities’ populations are made-up of dependent people looking for hand-outs, mostly unskilled workers, and the poorly educated.

As a result, unqualified democrat candidates are elected who have no idea how to solve any of the cities’ problems, nor do they even want to.

history 5

These are the types of candidates this demographic consistently leans towards and supports.

These “leaders” are blissfully ignorant, and more than happy to be “large and in charge” of their dysfunctional fantasy lands, as their “Romes” burn down around them.

history 4

That seems to be the basic “modus operandi” of a socialist form of government.

Barnini Chakraborty for Fox News seems to agree with me when she reports that, “Baltimore [is] struggling with soaring crime, drugs and inept political leaders.”

“Charm City [Baltimore] has also been struggling with a crisis of confidence when it comes to its political leaders.”

I’m sure we can all recall the visions of the Baltimore riot during Barack Obama’s reign, how he chose to ignore it, and how the mayor at that time chose to let the rioters “express themselves” by burning down half of the city.

“Last week, federal agents raided the homes and City Hall offices of Baltimore’s embattled Mayor Catherine Pugh, widening an investigation into whether she used bulk sales of her self-published children’s book to disguise kickbacks. The early-morning searches were just the latest setback for the politically isolated first-term mayor who campaigned on transparency and ending corruption.”

“Republican Gov. Larry Hogan joined a growing group of people who want Pugh to step down and has called on the state prosecutor to investigate allegations of ‘self-dealing’ by Pugh.”

‘“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership,’ Hogan tweeted Thursday. ‘Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead.  For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.’”

“Baltimore City Council members echoed the sentiment, and Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot tweeted last month: ‘The Mayor has to resign – now. The people of Baltimore are facing too many serious challenges, as it is, to also deal with such brazen, cartoonish corruption from their chief executive.’”

Yes…, “the mayor has to resign now,” so we can get the next clown in there who will probably be even worse.

“Pugh has been on paid administrative leave for the past month as calls to go grow, but she is hardly the first Baltimore mayor who has faced calls to leave.  Democratic Mayor Sheila Dixon resigned from office in 2010 to save her pension and preserve the possibility of working for the city or state again.  Pugh beat out Dixon by about 3,000 votes to clinch the 2016 Democratic primary.”

“John Dedie, a political science coordinator at the Community College of Baltimore County, told The Associated Press that one of the city’s greatest fears is to be ‘seen as a laughing stock, like Detroit was years ago until the governor of Michigan put it in receivership.’”

Uhh, I think it’s a little too late for that Mr. Dedie.

The new Police Commissioner, Michael Harrison was sworn-in on March 12, and he promised to make Baltimore safer and lead the department through sweeping reforms.

Promises, promises.

“Beverly White, who has lived in the city for more than three decades, told Fox News she has struggled to keep her family safe.”

‘“There have been shootings one after another,’ she said. ‘We’ve had people come here and promise to clean up the streets but nothing happens. People feel unsafe in their neighborhoods. (Harrison) says he’s going to turn things around. It’s a nice thought, but they keep killing people… it’s going to get worse in the summer. It always gets worse in the summer.’”

“To be fair, Harrison inherited a dysfunctional force that’s long been distrusted by many residents. Misconduct by officers and chronically high rates of violent crime are just a handful of systemic failures in Baltimore.”

No…, to be fair, Mr. Harrison knew exactly what he was walking into, and it is obvious that he is in way over his head.

There really is no positive end in sight for these cities.

They’ll all end up bottoming out and declaring bankruptcy, like Detroit, before any hint of positive momentum can begin to be realized.

The more things change the more they remain the same.

Way to represent Rashida Tlaib!  I’m sure you’re the toast of deranged liberals everywhere!

Freshman U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (a democrat from Michigan) didn’t waste any time calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, just hours after being sworn into Congress.

But it’s not just that, it the manner in which she did it…, with such grace…, and with such decorum.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters last Thursday night, the Michigan Democrat, and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, said of Trump, “People love you and you win [referring to herself]. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”

Ms. Tlaib is such an idiot on so many levels that it’s hard to know where to begin…, but of course I’ll try!

Her being one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress is definitely noteworthy, and something for her and the Muslim community to be proud of.

That being said, she then took a left turn down “Pathetic” boulevard.

On her first day in Congress…, in her first few hours…, she was already out to impeach the President.

Then she follows it up by calling him a “motherf***er!”

And if that isn’t bad enough, she supposedly calls him this in a discussion with her son!

So basically in one day she managed to disgrace and embarrass herself as a member of Congress, as a Muslim, and as a mother.

Impressive!  I would say she has a bright future in the democrat party!

We should probably also remind our confused, brand new, congresswoman from Detroit, that to remove a sitting president, the Constitution requires a conviction of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

What exactly are you preparing to charge the President with, hurting your feelings?  Disagreeing with you?

The impeachment process would further require the consent of both the House and two-thirds of the Senate, which is still a Republican majority.

So what we’re talking about here is another waste of time, and I’m referring to the Mueller witch hunt, oops, I mean investigation, and another side show for the “biased, liberal, fake news media” to spin their propaganda on.

Nancy Pelosi, who was re-elected to Speaker of the House, said she isn’t ruling out impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, depending on findings by the special counsel investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

“We shouldn’t be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn’t avoid impeachment for a political reason,” she said.

Did she just contradict herself in the same sentence?  I think she did, but remember this is Nancy Pelosi here, so no big deal.

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” and so would Ben Carson’s name if he were a liberal.

According to Breanna Edwards, for Essence Magazine, “The Detroit School Board voted 6-1 last week to rename Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine.”

She goes on to say, “There was a time when Ben Carson was highly revered.  His contribution to medicine as a neurosurgeon cannot be denied.  But ever since Carson found himself working with President Donald Trump (and opening his mouth about politics in general), that admiration has largely fallen by the wayside.”

(So let me get this straight; Ben Carson was chosen by The President to be a part of his Cabinet and head The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (something Detroit has no need of, I say sarcastically), one of only 15 executive departments…, and this somehow detracted from his accomplishments and lessened his admiration?)

(Let’s do a quick review of Ben Carson’s story.  According to Biography.com, Ben Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan!!! His mother, though under-educated herself, pushed her sons to read and believe in themselves.  Carson went from being a poor student to receiving academic honors and eventually attending medical school.  As a doctor, he became director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33 and earned fame for his groundbreaking work separating conjoined twins.  In 2000, the Library of Congress selected Carson as one of its “Living Legends.” The following year, CNN and Time magazine named Carson as one of the nation’s 20 foremost physicians and scientists. In 2006, he received the Spingarn Medal, the highest honor bestowed by the NAACP. In February 2008, President George W. Bush awarded Carson the Ford’s Theatre Lincoln Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  He retired from medicine in 2013, and two years later he entered politics, and made a bid to become the Republican candidate for U.S. president.  After Donald Trump was elected president, he nominated Carson to become the secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development which, of course, he later became. That’s a pretty impressive resume’, and an impressive life worth celebrating in all communities, but especially in the African American community.)

So what did the Detroit school board do?  They voted last week to rename the Benjamin Carson High School of Science And Medicine.

Brilliant.  We certainly don’t want Black children, or any children for that matter, emulating someone like Ben Carson!  Why, they might end up being self-sufficient and actually take responsibility for themselves!  You know…, all of that “conservative” and “racist” ideology!

Hey!  Maybe I can be of some help here!  Let me respectfully submit some suggestions to the “honorable” Detroit School Board for potential school names.

How about the “Maxine Waters School for the Cognitively Challenged?”

Or, “Michelle Obamas Culinary Arts for Public Schools Academy?”

“Cory Booker’s Spartacus School of Self Defense?”

“President Barack Hussein Obama’s Islamic Preparatory School?”

“Sheila Jackson Lee’s School of Revisionist History?”

“Elijah Cummings Alzheimer’s Research Institute?”

Or maybe “Frederica Wilson’s School of Fashion?”

“The high school isn’t the only building that is being slated for a possible rename, however.  Earlier this year the panel approved a new policy to commemorate, name and rename school buildings and facilities, giving the board the option to change a school’s name to honor ‘individuals who have made a significant contribution to the enhancement of education.’”

The Detroit News writes: “The board also can select another name under circumstances that include when a building is newly built or redesigned, where the name no longer reflects the current student population or ‘the community of the geographic area where the school is located requests a name change that more closely aligns with the history of the locality, or information newly discovered about the current name of the school is negative in nature.’”

Among those who want Carson’s name removed from the high school, however, is LaMar Lemmons, a board member, who claimed that residents “don’t support the [Trump] administration.”

(I think Mr. Lemmons needs to be reminded that President Trump won the state of Michigan in the 2016 election, and it had been almost 30 years since a republican had won the state.)

Last week, Lemmons told the Washington Post, that having Carson’s name on the school was “synonymous with having Trump’s name on our school in blackface.”

Carson, he contended, “is doing Trump’s bidding, and he has adversely affected the African American community in Detroit as well as the nation with his housing policies.”

(Yes, Mr. Lemmons, terribly adverse effects, like the lowest Black unemployment rate in history!  That’s the lowest Black unemployment rate EVER in the history of our country! And regarding his housing policies, what President Trump basically did was lower the amount of federal money, by 9%, being used to subsidize states and cities who expect the entire country to pay for their foolishness, like Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Detroit.)

“And he’s allied himself with a president that says he is a white nationalist and sends dog whistles that even the deaf can hear,” Lemmons added.  (Or “dumb,” in your case, Mr. Lemmons!  You do get credit for using the “biased, liberal, fake news media” buzzword, “Dog whistle, however!  In my estimation, it is the Detroit School Board who are sending out “dog whistles” regarding prejudices against freedom of thought, freedom of political ideology, and the freedom of racial associations.  They are also sending out the message that you really cannot be successful or exceptional in the eyes of the Black community unless you bow down to the liberal democrat masters along the way.)

The board voted 6-1 to change the name, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to happen.  The district is expected to have community meetings and issue surveys for each site to figure out if there is indeed any interest in renaming any facilities, and also to figure out possible new names. The results will be reported by the superintendent, who will make a final recommendation to the board.

So Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine will still be, for now, at least until next school year.

Hey, didn’t Detroit have to file for bankruptcy back in 2013?  Well, yes they did.  And actually, it was the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history.  This is what the democrats have contributed to the legacy of the city of Detroit, Michigan.

Maybe their city government should be more concerned with spending their money wisely and paying their bills as opposed to playing political games, regarding what name a school has, while running down one of the few good men that children, and the people, in Detroit have to look up to.
