74% of Americans say the country is heading in the wrong direction, including 63% of Republicans, according to a new AP-NORC poll.

Jake will agree with the wrong direction polling. He'll soon be posting some right wing source on how White America is getting a raw deal and all street protesters are Anitifa rioters.

Re:

Let them learn the hard way, let crime skyrocket, maybe it will put some sense into their heads how life will be like without the police.

" Let them learn the hard way"?

Are you saying black people don't have any sense?

If you're talking about black communities, I think they've already learned the hard way about police brutality and police lynching innocent unarmed black men.

And Buddy, as far as crime goes it's in every neighborhood. And in the more prosperous ones-- that's where the real professional criminals operate.

And let me tell you something else, domestic violence is everywhere with every race and every class.

You ought to know that, especially where you live. Especially with this opioid crisis, some working-class and poor white men who have lost their jobs and who are drug-addicted are just out of control in some of these rural areas.

In Kansas we've got a meth problem with lower class white men, you wouldn't believe.

Everyone wants police protection if they can serve and protect you. And nobody wants police brutality and lynchings.

LMREO-- I was in college in the 1970s. This is called what young people do in the United States when they are developing Democratic ideas that will later be absorbed by the major parties and the status quo.

Hippies live!

Trump Denounces Wave of Statue Toppling

BY BOWEN XIAO June 21, 2020 Updated: June 22, 2020

Statues of American historical figures including two of its Founding Fathers, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, are being forcefully toppled across the country—a recent escalation President Donald Trump has explicitly denounced. 

Though it’s unclear who exactly is behind each monument’s desecration, Attorney General William Barr said recently that the Department of Justice has evidence that Antifa and other similar groups have “hijacked” initially peaceful protests triggered recently by the death of George Floyd.

At his first reelection campaign rally in months at Tulsa, Oklahoma, Trump linked the recent wave of statue toppling to an attempted communist-style revolution. 

“This cruel campaign of censorship and exclusion violates everything we hold dear as Americans,” the president said on June 20. “They want to demolish our heritage so they can impose their new oppressive regime in its place.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), meanwhile, called protesters tearing down a Christopher Columbus statue in Minnesota an “American Taliban.”

The president said at the rally that an “unhinged left-wing mob” is attempting “to vandalize our history … tear down our statues, and punish, cancel, and persecute anyone who does not conform to their demands for absolute and total control.” 

“We’re not conforming,” he said. 

Statues have been torn down across multiple states. In Portland, Oregon, protesters tore down a statue of Washington on June 18; some of them wrapped the head of the statue in an American flag and then lit the flag on fire. A Jefferson statue was also toppled in Portland. 

Protesters in California toppled a statue of Junipero Serra, a Roman Catholic Spanish priest widely regarded as a founder of the religious California Missions. In response, the Spanish Embassy in Washington issued a series of Twitter posts stating they “deeply regret the destruction of the statue … and would like to offer a reminder of his great efforts in support of indigenous communities.”

“We are also expressing our deep concern regarding these attacks to federal, state, and local authorities, asking that the memory of our rich shared history be protected, always with the utmost respect for the debates currently taking place,” embassy officials added.

Vandals in California have taken down statues of Francis Scott Key, who penned the national anthem, and Ulysses S. Grant, the famed general who helped win the Civil War, bringing an end to slavery in the U.S. One video taken at the scene shows a group of people dressed in black and cheering as they use a cord to pull the Key statue down.

Grant was an abolitionist who helped win a slew of battles against the Confederacy during the Civil War, forcing Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee to surrender in 1865. Grant went on to serve as the nation’s 18th president and used federal troops to prosecute the Ku Klux Klan. He worked to enforce civil rights for blacks and appointed them to prominent positions in his administration.

Grant, accused by some activists of being a slave owner, acquired one slave through marriage into a slave-owning family but freed him about a year later.

A statue of Mohandas Gandhi was vandalized in New York’s Central Park, as well as a statue of Miguel de Cervantes in San Francisco, a Spanish writer who was a slave himself for five years.

‘It’s very sad. It makes me feel it’s totally out of hand and it has nothing to do with civil rights,” one local bystander told CBS SF.

In Washington, protesters toppled a memorial to Albert Pike, a former Confederate soldier. Using multiple sets of ropes, vandals pulled down the 11-foot statue of Pike and set it on fire, chanting “No justice, no peace!” and “No racist police!” Capitol Hill police are reported to have stood by and watched as the statue was taken down.

While Albert Pike was a Confederate general, the statue actually was erected to honor his service as a Freemason, according to WUSA.

Amid the unrest, a June 19 ABC News/Ipsos poll found that more than half—56 percent—are opposed to changing U.S. military bases named after Confederate leaders.

In 2017, Trump predicted that statues honoring Washington and Jefferson would be eventually targeted. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), meanwhile, on June 18 ordered the removal from the Capitol of the portraits of four Speakers who had served in the Confederacy. She also called for the removal of 11 statues, nine of whom were Democrats, from the National Statuary Hall Collection, saying they “pay homage to hate.”

Pelosi, in a June 10 letter to the Joint Committee on the Library Chairman Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the committee’s vice chairwoman, says statues in the Capitol “should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation.”

‘Cultural Revolution’
Communism expert and author Trevor Loudon called the tearing down of statues a “Maoist tactic of erasing the form of culture.” 

“Maoism is about building a new man, a new society,” Loudon told The Epoch Times. “You have to destroy all remnants of the old society. You have to destroy memorials and the former culture so you can build a new society.” 

According to Loudon, Marxist organizations such as Liberation Road and the Workers World Party have both been involved in the recent escalations.

“They are following the line of the Chinese Cultural Revolution,” said Loudon, who is also a contributor to The Epoch Times. “The Cultural Revolution wiped out the previous Chinese culture; they toppled statues and desecrated monuments.” 

The endgame, Loudon says, is to usher in an American revolution that involves the destroying of the U.S. Constitution and the destruction of U.S. history. 

“All of this is linked; all of this is revolutionary activity to destroy the old culture … and build a new socialist society in its wake.”

OPINION EDITORIAL
Why shootings are soaring across NYC
By Post Editorial Board June 21, 2020 | 7:25pm | Updated

It’s safe to carry again, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea all but announced a week ago — and New Yorkers listened: The city’s seen dozens of shootings since, many times the number in the same week a year ago.

The early death toll includes the outright assassination of Kenneth Singleton, 35, in East New York as he was washing his car Saturday morning and the passing that night of another man, 36, in the East Village when a gun in his waistband went off by accident. Oh, and that triple murder in Brownsville.

Chicago, here we come.

We’ve warned for years that the NYPD’s anti-gun initiatives are more about discouraging people from carrying illegal guns than catching everyone who does. The point being that guns left stashed somewhere are far less likely to be used — not handy to reach for in a moment of passion.

Eight people shot in bloody nine-hour stretch in New York City

Yet Shea felt compelled last week to announce what he admitted was a “seismic” shift: the disbanding of the plainclothes anti-crime units that were the last cops left keeping guns off the street. The roughly 600 officers were reassigned to the Detective Bureau, community policing and “response autos,” i.e., patrolling in marked cars.

The commissioner ruefully said the move closed the final chapter in the “stop, question and frisk” book — as NYPD critics have demanded for years.

Those same critics pointed to how crime kept coming down even as police use of stop-and-frisk fell more than 95 percent. But it turns out that last 5 percent was vital: Decades of enforcement had taught New Yorkers that it was risky to carry, and even reduced enforcement kept the lesson sticking.

But now the cork is completely out of the bottle.

No, Shea’s move wasn’t the only reason for the surge in shootings: Recent weeks had already brought rising mayhem, thanks to tensions from the lockdowns, the cover that protests have provided for criminal gangs and the stretching-thin of the NYPD by the pandemic and orders to (sort of) enforce social-distancing rules — as well as redeployments to safeguard protests and combat rioters and looters.

Plus, with courts near-frozen by the pandemic, hundreds of gun-possession cases are in limbo — and the perps walking free.

Cop morale is down, too: State and city lawmakers are rushing to appease the “defund the police” marchers, passing new laws that limit policing without much heed to which ones are actually wise reforms, and which are gifts to career criminals.

Heck, not just cop morale: District attorney’s offices all across the state are seeing a flight of veteran prosecutors, as the no-bail law makes it near-impossible to get bad guys off the streets even when they’re caught red-handed. Correction officers feel besieged as well.

Pinhead progressives and their allies in public office pretend that this can be fixed with a few more city-funded social workers, more arts and recreation activities and so on.

Sorry, Jumaane: Counseling alone will never be enough.

The question now is: Can the NYPD get the cork back in the bottle? Not all by itself, we fear.

Unless and until the politicians change course, things are likely to get worse before they get better.

OPINION
The ‘cancel’ crew will come for you someday soon
By Karol Markowicz

June 21, 2020 | 6:20pm

A moral panic is sweeping the nation. How we react to the pitchfork hordes will determine the fate of our country for a generation or longer.

We call what the hordes do to our fellow citizens “cancel culture,” but the term is far too cute to capture the cruel, mindless and life-destroying process taking place all around us in the name of “fighting racism.”

The tendency has been with us for some time, but the current, ­extra-crazed moment has accelerated its malignant energies: Locked in for months due to COVID-19, we re-emerged into a society more enraged and at war with itself than ever before.

Then the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis took the ideological madness to the next level. The great majority of Americans agreed that Floyd’s death was horrific and that the police officers responsible for it must be held to account. But that sane consensus wasn’t enough, as far as the cancel left was concerned: Enemies had to be found and eradicated.

And if there weren’t enough racist enemies, then more of them had to be invented.

Prominent conservatives, as I have pointed out in these pages, can rarely be canceled. A Sen. Tom Cotton might express an opinion deemed utterly verboten, but the left can’t drum him out of public life or destroy him.

But all other Americans — including those with small or nonexistent public profiles — are vulnerable. It’s a chilling development: We can’t cancel a Cotton or a Ben Shapiro, so let’s cancel citizens who might dare to share similar opinions.

That’s what was attempted with Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy. Gundy wore a T-shirt featuring the logo of TV station called One America News. OAN has a variety of personalities presenting a variety of opinions, generally right of center.

When the swarm came after Gundy, he folded, saying he was sorry for the “pain and discomfort” he had caused.

No one pointed to any particular opinion promoted by an OAN host that was beyond the bounds of discourse. We can’t shut down OAN, so let’s go after its viewers.

Being an unknown private citizen won’t save you. In one of the strangest pieces in the history of journalism, The Washington Post outed a left-leaning woman, who isn’t a public figure, for attending a Halloween party two years ago in black face. That she was making fun of Megyn Kelly (who had been accused of making light of minstrelsy) didn’t save this woman from ritual shaming in a major newspaper; her employer summarily fired her.

The sheer viciousness of ruining a private citizen apparently escaped the Post’s writers and editors. In fact, there is a good chance they saw themselves rendering a public service.

Better look at your social media — chances are you're next to be canceled

You don’t even have to have committed the offense to be fired. LA Galaxy midfielder Aleksandar Katai was released from his contract over his wife’s social-media posts. Somehow in America in 2020, if the actions of one spouse reflect poorly on the other, he can lose his job.

In Atlanta, the stepmother of one of the cops involved in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks was fired from her human-resources job, by her account simply because of her family link to the officer. Communist regimes the world over similarly punish guilt by family association.

To fight this moral panic, ordinary people will have to be brave, and we all need to show solidarity: People will have to stand up for their friends when they’re in danger of being swarmed, companies will have to stand up for their employees and the rest of us will have to speak out for all of them.

It’s a tough ask in a still-shaky economy and with a deadly virus still menacing the elderly and infirm. It’s easier to bend the knee than to withstand the slings and arrows that inevitably attend refusing to do so. But it’s something we must do to return to sanity and be a cohesive country again. Courage is not just helping others — it’s helping yourself, too: Are you sure the mobs won’t come for you?
