• Happy Father’s Day? Weekend Celebrated with Shocking Shooting Spree 

    Surge Summary: Nationwide cries for the defunding of police departments leads to a weekend of vast violence. Whodathunk endless trashing of police officers would lead to a surge of bloody crime?

    The carnage on America’s big city streets this weekend was shocking.  In Chicago, at least 101 people were shot.  Fourteen people, including five children, were killed.  The vast majority of the victims were black and the vast majority of the shooters were black.  There will be no protests calling attention to the plight of any of these victims.

    Instead of celebrating fathers, what happened in Chicago this weekend was in part the result of years of fatherlessness.  And there’s nothing but a collective yawn from the media.  Do black lives matter in Chicago?

    Meanwhile, the progressive left, which claims it wants to bring us all together, spent the weekend tearing down more American memorials and statues.

    As we reported, New York City recently disbanded its undercover crime unit.  Last week was the first week without that unit patrolling the Big Apple.  Over the weekend, at least 19 people were shot and one man was killed.

    In the apple of the left’s eye, the Seattle “Utopia” known as CHAZ/CHOP, three people were shot this weekend, and one person was killed.  When police arrived to provide assistance, they were pelted with bricks and bottles.

    You may recall that the mayor of Seattle wasn’t concerned about CHAZ, calling it the site of “a summer of love.”

    Who could have guessed that if you call police officers “racists,” fire and suspend them without due process and harass their families, you would end up with mass retirements and unsafe streets?

    Meanwhile, I have not heard one leading Democrat condemn the violence that is plaguing some of our urban centers.
