On Police isn’t this interesting
Here’s a poll from Gallup that amid all the news you see on TV you might find interesting:
– 67% of U.S. adults would rather police spend the “same amount of time” in their area as they normally do; 71% of White Americans, 63% of Asian Americans, 61% of Black Americans, and 59% of Hispanic Americans agree.
– 19% overall would prefer the police spend “more time” in their area; 17% of White Americans, 9% of Asian Americans, 20% of Black Americans, and 24% of Hispanic Americans agree.
– 14% overall would prefer police spend “less time” in their area; 12% of White Americans, 28% of Asian Americans, 19% of Black Americans, and 17% of Hispanic Americans agree.
So 86% of us want police to spend as much or more times in our areas.
Only 14% want less presence.
Wouldn’t you think with all the protests and news coverage about “defunding” and “eliminating” the police the numbers were different?
Are you surprised that 81% of Black Americans and 83% of Hispanics want as much or more coverage?
Maybe the media needs to see this and catch on so they can provide real news.
really mayor wheeler
The Portland Mayor, who just a couple of weeks ago was marching with demonstrators against the federal courthouse in his Oregon city, earning a tear-gassing for his effort, has done a complete about-face! He is now urging demonstrators to stay home and ordered police to do “whatever is necessary” to quash ongoing violence. I assume that includes the same tear gas he railed against when federal officers were using it.
He has even accused some rioters of attempted murder after they barricaded a police precinct and set fires outside it — the same tactics they were using on the federal courthouse just weeks ago.
The about-face has not gone unnoticed at the Department of Homeland Security, where acting Secretary Chad Wolf said it’s striking to see the mayor now saying “almost word for word” what Mr. Wolf was saying for weeks. “It’s disappointing that it took him this long. It’s disappointing he wouldn’t make these comments when federal law enforcement officers were under attack night after night,” Mr. Wolf said.
why did this get no coverage?
On Sunday, Lindsey Graham Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman accused the FBI of committing a “new crime” before a Senate committee in 2018 when the bureau testified that a key source backed up Christopher Steele and his anti-Trump dossier when, in fact, the source had not.
Graham was incensed and said, “somebody needs to go to jail for this,” as he showed the newly declassified FBI document. “They misled the hell out of them,” he said. “They completely misrepresented to the Senate intel committee what the sub-source had told the FBI in 2017. That is a new crime, a different crime.”
Yet no MSM coverage and of course nothing in the NYT. Why is that?
and this too:
The pure nerve of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., to ask A.G. Barr, “Under oath, do you commit to not releasing any report by Mr. Durham before the November election?”
Wait, we had interference in the 2016 election, and it wasn’t Russian Collusion with the Trump campaign that you told us for three years. We are finally getting to the bottom of this after $50 million were lost chasing a lie, and you don’t want the truth out before the 2020 election?
You can’t be serious. How do these people get reelected?
the biden pick
The prolonged delay in naming a running mate is, I think, beginning to harm VP Biden. As it drags out and groups like “The 100 Black Men” say you must choose a black female or we are out is not good.
You reach a point where intrigue begins to look like indecision.
The choices seem to be Sen. Kamala Harris, former national security adviser Susan Rice, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Congresswoman Karen Bass.
At this point I think he has backed himself into a corner and must take a black female. The best choice for him is Harris, I think. Rice and Bass bring too much baggage.
here’s some news:
Here’s a Nielsen Media report that should rock the MSM:
In June and July, Fox News was the highest-rated television channel in the prime-time hours of 8 to 11 p.m. Not just on cable. Not just among news networks. All of television.
The average live Fox News viewership in those hours outstripped cable rivals like CNN, MSNBC and ESPN, as well as the broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC.
It is rare and extremely unusual for a cable station to achieve this. The report said that even the return of live sports did not stop the momentum: Shows hosted by Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity drew more live viewers than competing baseball and basketball games, including a Yankees-Nationals matchup on Opening Day.
And still the other networks and cable stations don’t vary their programming.
