  4. I am so sad with those who have to live under these conditions. My daughter will not allow her sons to officiate at soccer games in Minneapolis. Two shootings at the parks and the last one left a youth coach with a bullet grazing his head. And so the downward spiral of evil keeps on going. I hope people wake up and vote those people out who are supporting this stuff.

  5. And in our state this morning:

    ~ Police and sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting involving multiple fatalities in San Jose Wednesday morning at a Valley Transportation Authority yard north of downtown.

    The incident involves multiple fatalities and multiple casualties, Santa Clara County sheriff’s officials said, but they did not yet confirm how many.

    Sheriff’s officials said at about 8:10 a.m. the shooter was down. ~

  6. So many incidents, and so much crime. It is very saddening. Because of so much crime at gas stations here, it sounds like there is a push to have surveillance cameras at each pump.

    “Biden ICE Nominee Partnered With Chinese Propaganda Ministry”

    “Joe Biden’s nominee for immigration enforcement chief partnered with a Chinese government propaganda ministry on a 2014 public relations campaign to bolster the international image of Shanghai, a partnership that is now under scrutiny ahead of his Senate confirmation hearing.

    Ed Gonzalez was a member of the Houston City Council and was serving as the city’s mayor pro tem when he signed a cooperative agreement in October 2014 with Zhu Yonglei, the head of the Chinese government’s Information Office of Shanghai, according to news reports and Gonzalez’s Twitter posts at the time.

    The “memorandum of understanding” between Gonzalez and Zhu was an “agreement to promote each of the partner cities for a year through a series of videos at strategic locations and on social media,” according to China Daily. The deal was reportedly an expansion of an existing partnership intended to promote economic ties between Houston and Shanghai.

    Gonzalez, who currently serves as the sheriff of Harris County, Texas, was nominated for director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement last month. But his involvement with the Chinese propaganda bureau has come under scrutiny ahead of his Senate confirmation hearing. The Washington Free Beacon reported last week that Gonzalez also took a 2015 trip to China that was bankrolled by an advocacy group for the EB-5 cash-for-visa program.

    Zhu—who has since been promoted to deputy of Shanghai’s propaganda department—praised the agreement at the time and said he “hope[d] this exchange will unite us together to promote the sustainable development of cities around the globe.” Gonzalez tweeted a photo of him and Zhu signing the deal. Another photo from the event shows the two men standing next to each other while Gonzalez displays a framed photograph of Shanghai.

    The White House did not respond to a request for comment.”

    “Dramatic CNN, MSNBC Post-Trump Ratings Plunge Continues”

    “After Justice Sonia Sotomayer swore in Joe Biden in January, the ratings bump both CNN and MSNBC experienced between November and January began nosediving spectacularly.

    Unfortunately for them, things aren’t getting any better:

    As Daily Caller recently reported, the freefall that started in January continues apace:

    During the primetime hours of 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. (EST), CNN lost around 65% of its total viewers since January. In the critical 25-54 age demographic, the network lost 71% of its viewers for both the day and primetime.

    CNN’s drop in viewers is larger than its competitors, but all major cable news shows have experienced a drop. MSNBC had the second-largest drop in viewership since January, losing 49% of its total viewership between January and May. In the 25-54 age demographic, the network lost 63% of its viewers. During primetime hours, MSNBC lost 42% of its total viewers and 58% of viewers between the ages of 25 and 54.

    However, they also noted that although Fox News lost viewers as well, the percentages were much lower. The popular news network shed 12% of total viewers and 15% between the 25-54 age group in the same timeframe.

    The color graphics hit the point home about how bad things have become at the two liberally biased news outlets. MSNBC occasionally shows signs of life:”

  13. As I quickly survey the previous posts — bullets, guns, shootings, etc— the thought occurs to me; has no one heard of gun control. A few cases of voter fraud — massive investigation, new rules passed, etc. More mass shootings than days in the year so far — lets loosen gun regulations. Both are constitutionally protected why is democracy tightly regulated and a cause of death left alone or protected?

    With mass shootings and murder, its obvious the US police forces aren’t useful in preventing crime (the US spends more on policing yet has the highest crime rate in the western world). Perhaps defund what’s not working, that is the police, and try something new — look at countries with low crime rates, Nordic countries perhaps and imitate them.

    And cable ratings amuse me — nobody is watching network and cable news anymore, its like looking at Blockbuster rental statistics. Its irrelevant. The only thing to take from cable new is people only watch it when they are worried and want information. CNN and MSNBC demographics aren’t worried; boring sleepy but competent Joe keeps the ratings down. FOX still manages to keep their demographic scared.
