Billion Dollar Firm Leaving Seattle for Phoenix Due to Unrest in the City

Billion dollar investment firm Smead Capitol Management announced they are moving their headquarters from Seattle to Phoenix.

According to FOX Business Network the CEO says there is no downtown business community in Seattle where they are located and recruitment is harder in Seattle. The cost of living inside the city is higher than Phoenix.

Smead CEO Cole Smead told KTAR, “The unrest that has taken place in the city of Seattle… there is really is not a downtown business community today.”

Smead added, “My biggest concern for Seattle was what the business community is going to come back to, and what kind of businesses are going to come back for customers.”

LOCK THEM UP: Veterans ‘ Memorial Preservation Act Cited By Trump Makes Destruction of National Memorials and Statues Punishable by Up to 10 Years in Prison

Earlier today President Trump spoke to reporters at the White House before he left for his rally in Arizona later today.

President Trump told reporters he will use the Veterans’ Memorial Preservation Act to go after the jailed hoodlums who attempted to tear down the Andrew Jackson statue last night in Lafayette Square.

President Trump tweeted this out earlier this morning.

…..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 23, 2020

President Trump told reporters his intentions before his flight to Arizona.

Trump is right.
One section of the Veterans’ Memorial Preservation Act of 2003 states that a person who willfully injures or destroys veteran memorials — or attempts to do so — shall be fined and/or imprisoned no more than 10 years.

Over 100 monuments and statues have been torn down by violent leftists and Marxists in the last month.
It’s time to jail these lawbreakers.

Puzzles about Trade that Make Me Wonder

outdoor market, croatia

I spend much of my time wondering. I wonder about many matters. But the kind of wondering that I typically do isn’t the kind that finds me marveling wide-eyed at some amazing feature of reality (although I do sometimes marvel in this way). Most of my wondering results from me being mystified that so many people fail to ask questions of the sort that strike me as obvious, relevant, and important.

Wonderful Trade

I wonder a great deal about people’s misunderstanding of trade. For example, I wonder…

… why, on certain occasions, support for protectionist policies in the United States can be easily drummed up by asserting that some foreign government is intent on artificially restricting Americans’ ability to import goods and services, such as medical supplies. Why do Americans turn for a ‘solution’ to this problem to their own government – a government that has done, and continues to do, far more than has any foreign government to artificially restrict Americans’ ability to import goods and services?

… why, on other occasions, support for protectionist policies in the U.S. can be easily drummed up by asserting that some foreign government is intent on artificially enhancing Americans’ ability to import goods and services, such as commercial aircraft. Why is there no understanding that this complaint is inconsistent with the complaint just above? And more generally, why does anyone believe that we Americans are harmed by foreigners arranging for us to have access to a greater abundance of goods and services?

… why so many Americans believe that they will be made poorer if people in poor countries, through trade, become richer. Why do so many of my fellow Americans believe that the increased ability of foreigners to produce and offer to sell to us high-quality goods and services threatens our prosperity? Do these same Americans believe that their prosperity is threatened if greater numbers of other Americans, say, get better education that enables them – these other Americans – to produce and offer to sell to their fellow Americans high-quality goods and services? Why should we believe that we are benefitted through trade by the enrichment of human beings across town, but that we are harmed through trade by the enrichment of human beings across the ocean?

… why so many Americans fail to understand that international trade cannot make Americans more dependent upon foreigners without making foreigners more dependent upon Americans. Why don’t more people realize that foreigners engage in commerce with Americans in order to get goods and services in exchange from Americans? Asked differently, why do so many people presume that foreigners are stubbornly intent on giving to Americans gifts?

Wonderful Capital

But trade is not the only policy matter that causes me to wonder. I wonder also about many non-trade matters. I wonder, for instance, …

… why Jones’s call to forcibly transfer some of Smith’s wealth to Johnson is widely regarded as evidence of Jones’s enlightened altruism, while Smith’s call to keep the wealth that he has earned from being forcibly transferred to Johnson is widely regarded as evidence of Smith’s benighted greed. Why is the desire to keep what one earns regarded as evidence of greed? And why is the desire to grab what others have earned not regarded as evidence of greed?

… why Marxist-sympathetic academics such as economists Thomas Piketty and Gabriel Zucman write as if capital typically grows in value automatically, independently of human institutions and actions, and that capital that grows in value helps only the owners of capital but not consumers and workers. Why don’t Piketty, Zucman, et al., understand that the value of capital – the value of the likes of a factory, of a bulldozer, of a plot of farmland, of a pharmaceutical-company research lab – is tied tightly to its productivity? And why don’t these people understand that to be productive capital must be creatively designed and directed to satisfy consumer desires that would otherwise remain unsatisfied? What goes on in the heads of people such as Piketty and Zucman to blind them to the reality that designing and deploying capital to make it productive requires human creativity, effort, and risk-taking?

… why, if the likes of Piketty and Zucman truly believe that capital typically grows automatically, the likes of Piketty and Zucman don’t advise middle- and low-income people simply to acquire more capital – that is, to become capitalists. Because acquiring capital is today quite easy – hey, E*TRADE has a mobile app!– why must governments coercively transfer capital from those who’ve created or otherwise peacefully acquired it to those who’ve exerted no effort to acquire capital for themselves?

… how the likes of Piketty, Zucman, and others who believe that capitalists possess a sinister power that can be thwarted only by a muscular state that actively “redistributes” wealth explain the fact that bankruptcy of privately-owned businesses in market economies is commonplace. Isn’t the reality of business bankruptcies – including bankruptcies of many businesses once large and “dominant” – alone sufficient to discredit the notion that capital grows in value automatically?

Not-so-wonderful Lack of Context

And lately I’ve wondered also about our reaction to coronavirus. I wonder mostly…

… how much of the public’s reaction to coronavirus is driven by media and political hysteria. I wonder what would happen if the news media and government officials were to pick some cause of death or illness other than coronavirus and report on it in isolation of other causes of death or illness. What would be the public reaction if the headlines daily announced, say, the number of people who died within the past 24 hours from some virus other than COVID, and reported these daily deaths with vivid bar charts? How would the public react to increased testing of some virus other than COVID and to breathless reports of rising numbers of people testing positive for this other virus?

This last bit of my wondering is more open-ended than most of my other wonderings. I honestly don’t know the answers to the questions posed in the previous paragraph. But in my now-long lifetime I’ve seen enough media and political bias to cause me to seriously suspect that a great deal of the public’s reaction to COVID-19 was and is driven by a failure to put this disease in proper perspective. I wonder what would happen if a better and fuller perspective were given.

Regardless of the answer, it’s always good to wonder.

And President Trump told reporters his intentions before his flight to Arizona.

President Trump: last night we stopped an attack on a great monument, the monument of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park, and I just want to thank the police force they did a great job… Really they did a great job. They stopped it cold. Numerous people are in jail and going to jail today. People are already there. But we’re looking at long term sentences under the act, we have a very specific Monument’s Act. We are looking at long term jail sentences.

The Inestimable Wisdom of Deirdre McCloskey

Deidre McCloskey, book cover

Deidre McCloskey does not pull her punches, nor does she discriminate in her new book Historical Impromptus, a book where she takes on everyone from Karl Marx to Adam Smith. As expected for a professor who teaches four different subjects her book engages a number of topics that include but are not limited to international trade, the origins of wealth, monetary policy, agriculture, peasant behavior, economic development, and the breeding habits of rich people. 

It is a truly interesting book that consists of 368 pages of essays that at first seem a bit eclectic but eventually come together to form a coherent picture. That is as advertised, a commentary on British economic history which holds key universal lessons, an explanation of the Great Enrichment, and a stalwart defense of liberalism packing an economic reality check for doomsday alarmists.

McCloskey’s discussion on British economic history alternates between providing highly specific details on industrial performance and broader discussions about the experience of humanity. The passages read almost like a conversation as she responds to a variety of different scholars, intricately applying and refuting their writings. Intertwined with her oddly specific and niche discussions about the variations in size of coal mine shafts and the performance of cotton mills are some profound observations about history. One of her most important is the refutation of some commonly held economic fallacies.

BUY THIS BOOK

The first fallacy is the idea of a British economic decline, to which she asks a decline to what? She cites various explanations for a perceived fall from grace during the late Victorian era such as misallocations of capital. If only British businessmen invested more at home than in Canadian railroads, she playfully mocks, or perhaps Parliament should have banned all investment abroad. These faulty hypotheses not only advocate for a zero-sum view of prosperity but as McCloskey hammers on in her book, there was no economic decline. Some countries just grew a little faster and fast economic growth is easier at the bottom than it is at the top.

The scholars she criticizes cited the superior economic growth of Gilded Age America and Germany as proof of Britain’s decline. However, they forgot that the rest of the world was far poorer by an order of magnitude. Instead of being the best economy in the world, now Britain was only in the top five; what a shame! At the same time as America and Germany got rich, they contributed to the overall wealth and prosperity of the world. Economic growth is mutually beneficial, not a competition with winners and losers.

Clearly, she did not mean to address this point simply to gain intellectual brownie points; these same characters still exist today in different forms and advocate for what is essentially economic nationalism. They do not realize that variance in economic growth is fine, that in the grand scheme of things we are richer than ever before, that prosperity elsewhere adds and not detracts from our overall well-being.

Another very important lesson McCloskey provides in her book is the nature of prosperity. Contrary to what many would like to believe, imperialism and world domination were not good for the average Briton. You cannot oppress your way to prosperity or else North Korea would be the richest country in the world. Free enterprise, trade, and the liberal ideals of The Enlightenment is what created the wealth they had and still have today. 

If anything the British may have been better off had they not conquered half the world and instead focused on being a free-trading nation. Save for having cool stolen artifacts and a map of the world painted in red, what good did any of this do for the average British citizen? British tax dollars were being siphoned off to pay for constant military campaigns, and goods imported from abroad were paid for in blood. 

The real driver of growth rested in the free citizen, the ability to conduct commerce, to trade freely, to invent and innovate, to compete in the open marketplace. One does not need any more proof than to look at modern-day Britain. A mere shadow of its former self geographically, but wealthier by orders of magnitude. In an increasingly globalized world that embraces free enterprise we see the results everywhere we look. 

McCloskey provides evidence that the average global GDP per capita from 1820 to 1992 increased by a factor of almost 800%. For countries like the United States that fully embraced liberal values that number is closer to 1600%. Countries like Russia, with greater size and natural resources, pales in comparison because its people are not free. Prosperity is furthered when more and more people are able to participate in the marketplace and when they can bring their talents and ideas to the world.

The second part of McCloskey’s book touches on the Great Enrichment, which is the current time period that we are so fortunate to inhabit. For the majority of human existence and by our natural condition, abject poverty was the state of man. Then within the past few hundred years, wealth generation and prosperity began to skyrocket. In this portion of her book she seeks to compare a diverse array of ideas and offer her own hypothesis. Much like the section on British economic history, McCloskey has a timeless lesson for the reader that is highly relevant today.

The section concerning the Great Enrichment is especially interesting because it attempts to answer a profound and noble question: how did humanity become rich and how can more societies become rich?

Some people, like Karl Marx, would assert that humanity became rich when exploitation of labor became profitable. On page 266 she quotes Marx and Engels when they write “the bourgeoisie, during its rule of scarce two hundred years, has created more massive and colossal productive forces than have all the preceding generations together.” The latter part of that statement is certainly true as the bourgeoisie has gone on to create more and more productive institutions; the former, not so much. As she explains in a different paper:

“Taking by exploitation from slaves or workers results merely in more such fruitless capital accumulation, if it does, and is anyway is unable to explain a great enrichment for even the exploited in the magnitude observed, absent an unexplained and massive innovation.”

Another school of thought she tackles is social-Darwinism espoused by Gregory Clark in his book ‘A Brief Economic History of the World.’ McCloskey summarizes his point that prosperity became more widespread because rich people were eventually able to spread their values throughout society because they could breed more and survive longer. Eventually, values that were necessary for a prosperous commercial society became more and more widespread. McCloskey quotes Clark’s writing on page 302 which says, “England’s advantage lay in the rapid cultural, and potentially also genetic, diffusion of the values of the economically successful through society.” 

Besides being flirtatious with eugenics,  this cannot be true either as the rich and the poor have enjoined massive gains in wealth. Furthermore, countries like China and India within the same generation have gone from abject poverty to economic powerhouses. This theory does, however, raise good points about the necessity of certain values that make commercial society possible. She touches on this later in the book.

McCloskey then moves on to analyze and engage with ideas that could certainly play a role but she does not see as the main causal factor. On page 280 she cites the theory of endogenous growth which argues that purely economic factors such as population and urbanization lead to prosperity. Then there is exogenous growth which posits that outside factors such as technological transfers lead to growth. Perhaps it was the harnessing of fossil fuels cited on page 319? All of these are helpful but nowhere near causal. 

The great Adam Smith and his theory that accumulation of capital produces wealth must be the linchpin, right? Or maybe John Stuart Mill’s view that savings from globalization created the investments necessary for prosperity? On page 295 McCloskey asserts that these are all fantastic things to have but they are not the root cause of the Great Enrichment and widespread growth. Necessary but not sufficient for prosperity.

The root of the Great Enrichment and the prosperity that we see increasingly around the world is the spread of ideas. Ideas encompassing the general sentiment towards commerce, the dignity of individuals, and the value of liberty that are attributed to the Dutch Golden Age. McCloskey on page 325 writes that

“If capital accumulation or the rule of law had been sufficient the Great Enrichment would have happened in Mesopotamia in 2000 B.C… Why did it all start at first in Holland about 1600 and then in England about 1700… The answer, in a word, is liberty. Liberated people it turns out are ingenious.”

When people embrace the ideas of political and economic freedom, they are free to innovate, to compare ideas, to compete in the marketplace. A society that embraces what she calls “bourgeois values” is a society that can unleash the potential of its people. It was not capital attainment or worker exploitation or institutions like common law. It was as she writes

“Ideas from and about the bourgeoisie — by an explosion after 1800 in technical ideas and a few institutional concepts, backed by a massive ideological shift toward market-tested betterment.”

This shift in values is what ultimately leads people to prosperity. Embracing the values of entrepreneurship and enterprise, individual worth, and responsibility. A country could have all the capital in the world and the best institutions and still get nowhere. If the people themselves do not value the core principles of liberty, of permissionless innovation, of mutual respect, and self-responsibility, then prosperity will be scarce. People certainly need proper institutions and capital to generate wealth. But it is the ideas and values that define a society that determines if they will be put to good use.  

McCloskey writes in a separate paper

“What made us free and rich was the questioning of the notion that ‘a liberty’ was a special privilege accorded to a guildsman of the town or to a nobleman of the robe, and the supporting notion that the only ‘dignity’ was privilege inherited from such men and their charter-granting feudal lords.”

Breaking down barriers not only institutionally but socially, and allowing more people to strive for their potential is what started the engine of comprehensive economic growth. Economic and social freedom that rests not only in regulatory codes but in the hearts of men. 

Deidre McCloskey separates her book into two sections: one on British economic history and one on the Great Enrichment, but they come together to form one coherent message. Standing out from the oddly specific essays about agriculture and canal construction, monetary policy and financial practices are a persuasive prescription for economic and social liberty. She assures us that the principles of free trade, of global cooperation, of commercial enterprise and individual dignity will continue to bring the blessings of prosperity to more and more human beings. 

We should ignore the siren songs of socialism, fascism, economic nationalism and embrace a culture that allows people to as she says “have a go.” In other words, a free and open society that embraces bourgeois values. If we do this we will not only continue the economic and social miracle that many of us are so blessed to be a part of but extend it to others who are less fortunate.

Twice as Many Americans Support Inclusive “All Lives Matter” Over “Black Lives Matter” Slogan

Despite the massive support from the far left mainstream media, more Americans support the more inclusive slogan “All lives Matter” over the “Black Lives Matter” slogans.

After weeks of violence, looting, destruction and mass chaos more Americans are are likely to support country over the Marxist BLM movement.

Breitbart.com reported:

Twice as may Americans back the “All Lives Matter” slogan over the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, says a new Rasmussen survey of 1,000 likely voters.

Among blacks, a 47 percent plurality picked “All Lives Matter” over the 44 percent who picked “Black Lives Matter.”

The June 15-16 poll asked respondents: “Which statement is closest to your own?”

“Black Lives Matter” was picked by 30 percent of voters, including 35 percent of voters under age 40, and 63 percent of liberals.

“All Lives Matter” was picked by 59 percent of all voters, 58 percent of swing-voters, and 56 percent of “moderate” voters.

“Black Lives Matter” was more favored by wealthier people. It was backed by just 34 percent of people earning less than $30,000 but by 53 percent of people who earn above $200,000. The slogan was picked by just 22 percent of high school graduates but by 41 percent of people with professional degrees.

In contrast, “All Lives Matter” was picked by 54 percent of people under 40, by 60 percent of whites, by 61 percent of people who are neither black nor white, by 67 percent of people who earn between $30,000 and $50,000, by 70 percent of high-school graduates, and by 59 percent of college graduates.

The poll showed that 55 percent of people who strongly  disapprove of Trump prefer “Black Lives Matter.” But 63 percent of people who “somewhat” approve or disapprove of Trump prefer the “All Lives Matter.”

The partisan gap is wide. Seventy-seven percent of conservatives prefer ‘All Lives Matter,” while 63 percent of liberals prefer “Black Lives Matter.” However, 29 percent of liberals prefer “All Lives Matter.”

Don’t Mention the Virus

europe, streets, night

Like many others during the coronavirus pandemic, I have upped my consumption of podcasts. One problem, as most devoted listeners are aware, is that there are so many podcasts producing so much great content that you can’t always keep up. Thus, episode after episode line your podcast app, sometimes until they’re so outdated that they end up in the bin. 

The other day I dug for something interesting in my pile of overlooked episodes and found one from a few months back. It was released on March 16 – a few days after the corona mania blew up in the West. Listening to the podcast hosts’ comments on how the virus had abruptly changed their lives, I noticed something strange.

They were talking about toilet paper. Remember that? That particular hysteria was a remarkably long time ago.

I had almost forgot how “TP” became a hip thing to worry about. Supermarket shelves were occasionally empty; your average consumer stockpiled strange combinations of goods; toilet paper producers ramped up production to satisfy this crazy demand. 

All we could think of was how to get toilet paper, to lock our doors and not talk to anyone lest the virus emerge. To dismay at 10% daily moves in world stock markets. The panic was complete. The podcasters I listened to rightly ridiculed that behavior: surely, if this is an apocalyptic event, there are a myriad of things more important than toilet paper – like, you know, food and medicine. Or guns

I remember being hypnotized by the news, spending hours and hours listening to epidemiological experts discussing the threat and how to protect yourself. To my lasting shame, I seriously contemplated rushing to an ATM; if this was going to be a full-blown financial panic, I’d rather have cash than claims on increasingly wobbly banks. 

Turns out the banks were fine, and my panic – like everyone else’s – was overblown. It took me some hours walking through the woods to calm down and get some perspective. Life is still here; civilization mostly intact; capitalism still under attack. How silly of me to think that some of the most well-capitalized banks in the world would combust from a pandemic on par with the Swine Flu – the one nobody even remembers ten years on – and one much less fatal than road injuries or kidney disease

If we avoided the hysteria that eagerly thought this pandemic was either the end of globalization or the end of the human race, we all thought this would be a temporary nuisance in our lives. In a few weeks or many we’d all go back to our usual routines, bickering over our usual problems.

Instead, the virus is deceptively permanent and I don’t mean biologically. We haven’t really moved on from corona – it just lingers in our minds, sowing fear and discomfort all around us. It hides, unspoken, in all our conversations. 

Early on, I watched a talk show featuring two Swedish celebrities, discussing the many changes their household of five had experienced so far during the pandemic – working from home, teenagers studying online, coffee breaks juggled in between Zoom meetings and lecture sessions. That was a full 3 months ago – and we’re still in that exact predicament. Less panic, perhaps, as we noticed that the extra hospitals and extreme measures for the most part weren’t needed.

Even the hopelessly slow bureaucrats of the European Union got around to realize that health services didn’t collapse under the weight of the pandemic. More importantly, other things matter too besides death rates among the elderly. Between late May and mid-June, most European countries again opened their borders for outsiders – more so and with more vigor the more that country’s economy relied on tourism.

News media, blissfully ignorant of epidemiological statistics, didn’t move on to the next juicy topic in everlasting news cycles. With a short break following George Floyd and BLM riots, they kept rehashing the same pandemic story in different versions. 

Regular folks didn’t quite move on either. Instead, people treat the virus like the magic populace of J. K. Rowling’s Harry  Potter world treat the evil wizard Lord Voldemort: by refusing to invoke his name. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named caused unspeakable dread in Harry’s world, like the virus has caused panic in ours. So we don’t mention it. We say cumbersome things like “in these new times” or “have you celebrated the holiday differently this year,” with the subtle emphasis indicating that we’re really asking about the pandemic. Families, writes the New York Times, are “adapting to their new reality.”

When we meet friends – by which I mean Zooming or Skyping or FaceTiming, or sitting an awkward distance apart – we no longer ask how they’re doing, but how they’re “holding up” as if we’re all in a perennial state of mourning. We inquire about their work with “You’re working from home…?” but we’re really asking how your professional life has been impacted by the pandemic. At a cousin’s graduation party recently (held outside, of course, with lots of space and ample supplies of hand sanitizers), a distant family member was missing. He had had some complications with a back surgery and “didn’t wanna risk it.” He wasn’t afraid of injuring his back, it turned out, but of the virus. A reasonable decision if you just had an invasive surgery, but nobody wanted to say that.  

We all know what we’re really asking, but we’re afraid to openly acknowledge it. It’s like we’re ashamed of our fear for a relatively mild coughing disease and so we act as if the virus has less power over us if we avoid speaking its name. We’re not taking precautions for new virus outbreaks, but “preparing for a possible Fall Wave.” 

Quaint, if the euphemisms weren’t so cringe-worthy and absurd. 

Other areas of our social relations are impacted too. We don’t hug anymore, a blessing in disguise for us intimacy-scared Northern Europeans. As we don’t shake hands either, we seem to just stand there observing one another from a safe distance. The elbow bump is both weird and uncomfortable, but neither party acknowledges the oddness of the behavior. Don’t mention the virus. 

In one of the most iconic scenes from the 1975 British comedy show Fawlty Towers, John Cleese’s character receives German guests – and goes out of his way not to bring up the war. Which he, of course, is constitutionally incapable of doing, producing all kinds of amusing absurdities and Hitler impersonations, all while ordering his co-workers not to mention the war. 

That’s what our post-corona lives have become, a scene in Fawlty Towers – except that it’s not funny. 

Whatever you do, don’t mention the virus.

LAPD Officer Says He Found a Tampon Halfway Through Drinking His Starbucks Frappuccino

An off duty LAPD officer allegedly found a tampon halfway through drinking his Frappuccino from a Starbucks in Diamond Bar, California, on Friday.

Bill Melugin of Fox LA reports that the officer used his police credit union debit card to pay for his order.

BREAKING: Sources tell me an off duty LAPD officer allegedly found a tampon halfway thru his Frappuccino at a Starbucks in Diamond Bar on Friday. I’m told he used his police credit union debit card. Sheriff’s Dept. confirms they took a report & they’re now investigating. @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/HdLTreNuur

— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) June 23, 2020

Food tampering is a serious crime and the incident is now being investigated by the sheriff’s department. California Penal Code Section 347 states that any person who knowingly adds poison or a harmful substance to any food, drink, medicine, or pharmaceutical product where another person could be harmed, is guilty of a felony punishable by a prison sentence of two to five years in prison.

Police officers have been demonized by politicians and the media to the point where it has become unsafe for them to eat and drink in public.

Georgia Sheriff’s Deputy Stacy Talbert made a video recently crying about the fact that she is terrified to order food or drinks while in uniform. While the video was widely mocked online by deranged leftists, her message was valid, and this tampon incident is further proof of that.

“That’s all she hands me is the coffee,” she says, breaking down into tears. “I said, ‘Don’t bother with the food because right now I’m too nervous to take it!’ It doesn’t matter how many hours I’ve been up. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done for anyone. Right now, I’m too nervous to take a meal from McDonald’s because I can’t see it being made!”

Cops are losing their confidence with so much hate around. She’s exhausted and fear has crept in. We are in a very sad state of affairs. We are allowing the very best fabric of our country to be vilified. Take care of our police!

‘If Brooklyn Can’t Sleep, Bill de Blasio Can’t Sleep,’ New Yorkers Hold Noise Demo Near Mayor’s Mansion Over Fireworks and Lawlessness

New Yorkers are fed up with Mayor Bill de Blasio allowing the lawlessness continue on their streets, which includes shooting off fireworks at all hours of the night.

To enact their revenge, protesters lined up their cars and held down their horns for a noise demonstration near the Gracie Mansion late Monday night.

“If Brooklyn can’t sleep, @NYCMayor can’t sleep,” one person familiar with the protest tweeted.

The New York City Police Department has reportedly asked New Yorkers to stop calling 9-1-1 and 3-1-1 to complain about the blasts.

The police do nothing. This goes on all night in Brooklyn. The police have asked people to NOT call 311 & 911! pic.twitter.com/xt8aUOwkpq

Since de Blasio refuses to do anything about the insane noise keeping them awake, members of the Jewish community decided to organize a demonstration to make sure the mayor couldn’t sleep either — and it was LOUD.

Hundreds are protesting outside Gracie Mansion in #Manhattan right now after @NYCMayor refuses to do anything about the insane fireworks the last few weeks plaguing NYC. Residents can’t sleep, so they decided to not allow Deblasio to sleep tonight either. pic.twitter.com/Kom1X7PTPM

“We need to send a message that we need to end these chaotic fireworks that [have] been happening across the city,” said Councilman Chaim Deutsch, speaking at the protest.

One speaker demanded that they were not there for any political discussions, but do not feel safe in their homes.

The fireworks have been going on nightly in Brooklyn and other communities.

In one particularly horrifying video from Harlem, a criminal degenerate threw a large lit firework at a sleeping homeless man.

The New York Post reports that in the first two weeks of June, the city’s 311 system clocked 849 fireworks grievances, compared to just 21 during the same period last year — a whopping 4,000-percent surge.

Old Recording Comes Back To Haunt Liberal Anti-Trump Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel has become incredibly annoying in recent years.

He spends more time working out his Trump Derangement Syndrome than trying to be entertaining.

Now he has a serious problem on his hands.

FOX News explains why:

Jimmy Kimmel used ‘N-word’ in imitation Snoop song in 1996, impersonated comic George Wallace in 2013: audio

EXCLUSIVE: Jimmy Kimmel, who urged actor Tom Arnold to release an alleged “N-word” tape of President Trump in 2018, admitted years ago that he imitated rapper Snoop Dogg’s voice for a track in a 1996 Christmas album — an original song in which Kimmel used the “N-word” several times.

The admission came in a January 2013 podcast obtained this weekend by Fox News. In the podcast, Kimmel also changed his speech pattern in an attempt to adopt the voice of black comedian George Wallace, in what host Adam Carolla called Kimmel’s “crazy black voice.” Kimmel acknowledged imitating black people on other occasions as well.

Kimmel, who is slated to host the Emmy Awards this year, announced last week that he’s taking the summer off amid a brewing blackface controversy; he has not issued an apology.

Fox News additionally has obtained audio from the Christmas album, “A Family Christmas In Your A–,” which came out of the “Kevin & Bean” radio show that aired on KROQ-FM in California. A version of the track featuring Kimmel’s Snoop Dogg imitation, “Christmastime in the LBC,” has been uploaded to YouTube.

Kimmel recently announced that he is taking the summer off from his show. Now we know why.

Thread:
In 2018, Jimmy Kimmel begged Tom Arnold to release a Trump ‘N-word’ tape. No tape has surfaced.

However, in audio obtained by Fox this weekend, Kimmel imitates a black comedian (https://t.co/dN9pe8MN0y) and uses the ‘N-word’ six times. (https://t.co/yJ5gPDxygC). 1/2

In the audio, from a 2013 podcast, Kimmel also admits to impersonating other black individuals. Representatives for Kimmel, currently on vacation amid a blackface controversy, did not respond to requests for comment. He has not apologized. Details: https://t.co/UpVhkTwEex 2/2

Daily Caller Reporter Accused of Being a Cop and Assaulted While Covering DC ‘Protest’

Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott was accused of being an undercover cop and assaulted by the “peaceful protesters” in DC on Monday evening.

In a video of the incident, filmed by her colleague Matthew Miller, Talcott is surrounded by the Black Lives Matter activists and interrogated about who she is and why she was filming.

Miller tweeted that she was “surrounded by BLM protesters and assaulted tonight in front of the WH. She is okay and was saved by a cop grabbing her out of the mob. I couldn’t get full altercation because we had to jump in. This is right before the cop saves her.”

— Matthew Miller (@mattmiller757) June 23, 2020

The mob was upset that she was filming and warned that she should “leave before your sh-t gets f-cked up.” Another woman began clapping in Talcott’s face and demanding “you’re a cop. You’re a cop.”

Multiple right-wing reporters, including Matthew Perdie from Breitbart, have been assaulted by the mobs outside the White House while attempting to do their jobs since the riots began.

On Monday evening, the leftist mob in DC had attempted to pull down a statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Park, across from the White House. They were stopped by the police.

The activists also attempted to create a “Black House Autonomous Zone” modeled after the failed experiment of a similar nature in Seattle.

The Seattle version, CHAZ or CHOP, has been plagued with violence, theft, racial segregation and even murder in recent days.

The “peaceful protesters” also vandalized the historic St. John’s Church, again, after lighting it on fire just weeks ago.

HORRIFYING VIDEO: Degenerate Scumbag Throws Exploding Firework At Sleeping Homeless Man in NYC

A man was filmed throwing a lit firework at a sleeping homeless man in Harlem.

“It’s unclear exactly when the horrifying incident occurred, but cop sources told the Post it occurred on Lenox Avenue near West 113th Street in Harlem,” the New York Post reports.

Democrat run cities have become lawless and dangerous in recent weeks as politicians attempt to pander to the Black Lives Matter movement and their supporters.

White Allies dressed as slaves complete with whip marks on their backs at a protest Monday in Charleston, South Carolina.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Blasts John Bolton: The Information He Released Puts Criminal Liability Squarely on Him (VIDEO)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went on with Sean Hannity on Monday night.

During their segment Secretary of State Pompeo weighed in on John Bolton’s book release.

Secretary of State Pompeo: It’s both sad and dangerous. I haven’t read the book in its entirety but the excerpts I’ve seen, lots of falsehoods, lots of lies. Indeed the cover itself, “The Room Where It Happened,” isn’t completely true. The president and others myself included had to cut him out of meetings because he was leaking or he would twist things or he would lie. It was a really difficult situation for the president of the United States and the people… Frankly the information he released puts criminality squarely on him.

Pompeo went on to say his leaks were as damaging as the leaks by Edward Snowden.

Mark Levin Audio Rewind – 6/19/20

On Friday’s Mark Levin Show, Nancy Pelosi has been very selective with her outrage over racism and desire to remove statues. Pelosi has been in Congress since 1981 and has never once even tried to remove any statues. In fact, Pelosi sang the praises of the late Senator Robert Byrd, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, that Pelosi and then-Vice President Joe Biden, lauded Byrd as the embodiment of the American Dream. Even President Obama failed to acknowledge Byrd’s long history as a Klansman. Later, Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, openly admits to being a “trained Marxist” yet the media remains silent on the violence born from the movement she helped start. Not a single word from the media on the antisemitism coming from this movement. Afterward, Vice President Mike Pence joins the show to discuss the reopening of America and shared his thoughts on the Supreme Court’s recent decision on DACA.

“Lock ‘Em Up!” Senator Tom Cotton Puts Mob Rioters Destroying Andrew Jackson Statue on Notice, ‘A Crime That Carries a 10-Year Sentence’

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) put mob rioters destroying the Andrew Jackson statue in DC on notice.

Criminal vandals on Monday night prepared to tear down the iconic statue of Andrew Jackson outside the White House.

The DC police stepped in and fought back against the criminal vandals.

Andrew Jackson was the seventh president of the United States, a general in the United States Army and served in both houses of the U.S. Congress.

Senator Cotton said destroying a statue on federal property that commemorates the military service of Jackson is a crime that carries a 10-year prison sentence.

“And, by the way, criminal masterminds, you’re destroying a statue on federal property that commemorates the military service of Andrew Jackson, a crime that carries a 10-year sentence under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act. And you’re on tape. Lock ’em up!” Senator Cotton said.

And, by the way, criminal masterminds, you’re destroying a statue on federal property that commemorates the military service of Andrew Jackson, a crime that carries a 10-year sentence under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act. And you’re on tape.

Patriot Groups Announce They Stand Ready to To Retake CHOP Zone In Seattle if Mayor Does Not Act

On  Monday night the Seattle Police Department announced on Twitter that they will retake control of the police precinct overrun by Antifa domestic terrorists and their allies in the violent BLM mob.

This was after the shootings this weekend in the lawless CHOP zone.

Tonight The Gateway Pundit learned that a host ofconservative groups and possible hundreds of activists were planning to descend on the hellhole and restore order.

BREAKING: CHOP GETS THE CHOP! Seattle Mayor Sends In Police to Retake East Precinct in the CHOP Zone

Bikers for Trump – Boots On The Ground, Proud Boys, and several other patriot groups have been coordinating a march on CHOP next month, according to Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio.

The former congressional candidate said that early estimates showed over a thousand people were prepared to retake the CHOP zone, spread across a half-dozen or more groups.

“We informed Seattle Police Department that we were prepared to clear out the domestic terrorists peacefully and remove debris. We have seen rapes, assaults, and murderous shootings plague this so called “carnival like atmosphere” that was described as a “summer of love” by the Mayor of Seattle. My family did not escape Fidel Castro’s brutal regime to sit idly by while we watch these domestic terrorists create a Marxist maelstrom of depravity in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.”

The planned march on the CHOP zone was set for July 18th. Tarrio and others we spoke to told us that if the Seattle Police does not make good on their promise to retake the precinct and restore order, that he will make sure.

Seattle Police Post Video of CHAZ CHOP Mob Blocking Cops From Responding to Deadly Shooting, Forcing Retreat by Officers

Joe Biggs, a combat veteran who earned two Purple Hearts and has worked as a journalist, said that the Mayor of Seattle’s inaction should haunt her for the rest of her life.

“Well it took someone dying for the Mayor of Seattle to do her fucking job. That persons death is on her hands. She should step down immediately. Her inaction led to a pointless murder and that should haunt her for the rest of her life. Everyone involved in CHOP should pay that individuals family 10,000 to make up for the loss of life. They let the patients run the insane asylum and expected a “summer of love.” This is what happens when we let BLM and Antifa take charge.”

Biggs continued by saying that if the Mayor of Seattle does not clean up CHOP, “my men will come in and clean it up.”

Mark Levin Audio Rewind – 6/22/20

On Monday’s Mark Levin Show, the Democrat Party doesn’t stand for Americanism, it stands for violence. As the list of statues coming down increases, the list of statues toppled still doesn’t include any segregationists like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, or Robert Byrd. Also, Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer are stopping an African American Congressman Jim Clyburn from becoming Speaker — so why exactly are they standing in his way? Yet, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries says that a Black Speaker of the House is not needed and that Pelosi is “legendary.” Then, education has become indoctrination. It’s why the Black Lives Matters Marxists are solidly behind Joe Biden in 2020, despite his support for segregationists. As if knowledge has been purged and replaced with brainwashing to reinforce a leftist viewpoint. They are cherry-picking history to form a monopoly of ideology, to never be challenged by debate or discussion. Later, radical activist Shaun King says that statues of Jesus Christ should come down if they’re White and have European features. This insanity would cross a line that would be very bad. Mobs should not unlawfully pull down any monuments. Afterward, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy calls the show to discuss Republican support for Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to annex portions of Palestinian territory in the West Bank.

Press Evacuated From White House Amid Riot Breaking Out in DC

The press has been evacuated from the White House as a criminal mob of rioters are clashing with police outside.

Tucker Carlson reported that it is highly unusual for the press to be evacuated from the briefing room.

The mob is attempting to set up a “Black House Autonomous Zone” near the White House, similar to the CHAZ/CHOP lawless zone in Seattle. The Seattle zone has been plagued with theft, drugs, violence, and even murder in recent days.

In DC, the mob also attempted to tear down the iconic statue of Andrew Jackson outside the White House and once again vandalized the historic St. John’s Church that they had lit ablaze just weeks ago.

President Trump Says Barack Obama Committed Treason (VIDEO)

President Trump said Barack Obama committed treason in connection with Spygate during an interview with CBN News reporter David Brody.

“Treason. Treason. It’s treason,” Trump said referring to the crimes committed by his predecessor Barack Obama.

“They’d been spying on my campaign,” Trump said. “Turned out I was right. Let’s see what happens to them now.”

President Trump said he’s looking forward to what US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham finds in his investigation into the origins of Spygate.

“I want to stay out of it because otherwise it’s going to look political,” Trump said. “Let’s see what they come up with.”
