Biden to Tackle Gun Violence with Summer Camps and Jobs

This is all just another plug for the American Rescue Plan.

During the presidency of Donald Trump, many of his supporters were sure that the Commander in Chief was fighting a barely-secret war against a “deep state” of establishment politicians whose goal was to keep the status quo chugging along at all costs, enriching themselves in the process.

And, given that Trump had to work in the shadows to accomplish this, many began using the term “4D chess” to describe his fight.

Any time that The Don made a move that seemed a bit out of character, many believed that this was a subterranean attempt at stealing power from the deep state that only Trump could quite understand.

Now, in a far more bizarre set of moves, it appears as thought the Biden administration is trying to play something like 7 or 8D chess when they are only truly qualified to handle tic-tac-toe.

First, they insist that “climate change” is a “root cause” of illegal immigration, which is a dumbfounding declaration in and of its own right.

Now they are aiming to tackle gun violence with summer camp.

President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The president’s strategy will address five key areas: stemming the flow of firearms used to commit violence; providing law enforcement with more resources; investing in community violence interventions; expanding summer programs and employment opportunities, especially for young people; and helping formerly incarcerated people re-enter their communities.

As part of Biden’s plan, the Treasury Department will issue new guidelines Wednesday making clear that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence as a result of the pandemic can use the $350 billion in state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan to hire more law enforcement officials and purchase equipment that would allow police departments to better respond to gun violence.

One has to wonder if Biden and his team will soon declare DC a state in order to combat homelessness, or some other equally as random correlation of policy initiatives.

VIDEO: AOC’s Mask Hypocrisy Captured on Camera

What a phony!

Do as I say, not as I do. It has become the Democratic motto of late, with a vast number of liberal-leaning lawmakers eschewing their own advice, time and again, as it pertains to COVID-19 precautions. Former President Barack Obama was set to have nearly 700 guests over to his Martha’s Vineyard mansion for a birthday party in the coming days, before he was shamed into culling the guest list by media pressure. Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser attended an indoor wedding mask-less, despite pushing a mask mandate for businesses in the city. And now, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught faking it in terms of coronavirus safety. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., masked up for a photo op with activists on the steps of the U.S. Capitol — but only for the picture, a viral video shows. Ocasio-Cortez dropped her coronavirus mask after the snap Monday, when she posed with protesters in support of a new eviction moratorium. She was joined by fellow progressive Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. The congresswoman was maskless while sitting on the steps before the photo, but donned her gray mask before Markey sat down and the picture was snapped. “Housing is a human right,” the group said as the picture was taken, with someone after the photo saying “Everybody say ‘whiskey.’” The moment was captured on video. https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1422754744968302595?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1422754744968302595%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Faoc-coronavirus-mask-capitol AOC has been highly efficient as it pertains to using social media to build her brand, but, should this go viral, it could make the limelight burn just a little bit hotter.

Beantown Mayor says Proof of Immunization is Akin to Slavery

Slavery, like The Holocaust, is not to be summoned into the conversation lightly.

No matter how strongly you may feel on a particular subject, and no matter how personally offended you might be by something, unless that thing is literally slavery, it’s best not to try to compare it to actual slavery. We get it:  Hyperbole sells.  Hyperbole keeps you in the headlines, and it gets your name on the lips of folks the nation over in a hurry. But slavery is far too immoral and corrupt and horrid a thing to go around using it willy-nilly to make political points. The mayor of Boston is learning this lesson the hard way this week. NewsCenter 5’s Sharman Sacchetti posed the question to Mayor Kim Janey Tuesday, after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will soon be required for entering restaurants, gyms and indoor venues. The new requirement, which will be phased in over several weeks in August and September, is the most aggressive step New York has taken yet to curb a surge in cases caused by the delta variant. People will have to show proof that they have had at least one dose of a vaccine. “The goal here is to convince everyone that this is the time,” de Blasio said. “If we’re going to stop the delta variant, the time is now. And that means getting vaccinated right now.” And then… She went on to compare vaccine passports or credentials to documentation requirements during slavery and the Jim Crow era. Janey also drew a comparison to the so-called birtherism conspiracy theory. “There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers,” said Janey. “During slavery, post-slavery, as recent as you know what immigrant population has to go through here. We heard Trump with the birth certificate nonsense. Here we want to make…
