2 sad headlines. Liberals admit we were right

By Taxpayer Association of Oregon

This is not the way we wish to proven right, but what happened last week speaks volumes.

Fox News reports about a political figure who once advocated to abolish the police now calling for greater criminal prosecution.

“Shivanthi Sathanandan, the 2nd Vice Chairwoman for the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, posted Wednesday on Facebook that she was “violently carjacked” by “four very young men, all carrying guns.” She said they assaulted her in front her children outside their home in broad daylight. She also included a photo of her head injuries and reported having a “broken leg, deep lacerations on my head, bruising and cuts” around her body as well as feeling “rage” against the lack of accountability against criminals.”These men knew what they were doing. I have NO DOUBT they have done this before. Yet they are still on OUR STREETS. Killing mothers. Giving babies psychological trauma that a lifetime of therapy cannot erase. With no hesitation and no remorse,” Sathanandan wrote.Look at my face. REMEMBER ME when you are thinking about supporting letting juveniles and young people out of custody to roam our streets instead of HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS,” she said….Though she thanked police officers for their response, at the height of the George Floyd riots in June 2020, Sathanandan wrote Facebook posts supporting efforts to “dismantle” the police.”

The Hill reported on how New York Mayor Eric Adams called for a relief at the border (or more technically that border crosser be evenly sent to each state proportionately).   Calling the overload into New York a crisis is a vindication for everyone calling for border security and a rebuke to Homeland Security Chief who said the border was secure.“We need the federal government to lead a decompression strategy at the border so cities and states across the nation can do their part to shelter asylum-seekers. Because cities like New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and El Paso cannot be left to shoulder a national crisis without the proper aid,” he said.In a January op-ed in The Washington Post, Adams defined “decompression” as a “strategy at the border that evaluates asylum claims, establishes a plan for each migrant’s arrival — before entry into the United States — and a system to fairly distribute newcomers regionally.”
