Mayor Pete’s African American Problem

Buttigieg’s African American problem was driven home a couple of days ago by the stark numbers coming out of a Washington Post/Ipsos poll: While 48% of black voters polled backed Joe Biden, only 2% of black Democratic-leaning voters backed the former South Bend Mayor.

Democrats care more about helping illegal aliens than Americans

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

The contrast is stark. While President Trump is working daily to improve the economy, create good-paying jobs and solve pressing problems facing Americans, the biggest issue right now for Democrats running for president in 2020 is helping illegal aliens get into the United States to get services paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Some candidates are literally going to Mexico to literally help foreigners literally cross the border. But here’s what Mr. Trump should do: Address homelessness, poverty and hunger. These are Americans who need help. And if you’ve been to Los Angeles or San Francisco — the latter being the home district of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — you know the problem is out of hand.

Why Are There So Many Homeless in Los Angeles?

Why has this happened in a place that is so rich it is the fifth biggest economy in the world by itself, ahead of the United Kingdom and just behind Germany? Can't they just throw money at the homeless and make them go away? Not so easy. It's been tried, at least to some extent. Shelters, some of them well built, have been constructed all over the city but the homeless don't want to stay in them. The reason is these shelters are drug-free zones and the homeless of LA (and San Francisco and Seattle) are anything but drug-free. Most are addicts. They prefer to live in tents where they can smoke what they want, shoot what they want, pop what they want. So homeless encampments keep growing and sprout up everywhere.

California chaos -- Unchallenged liberalism leaves homelessness, drug abuse, garbage in its wake

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

Having used needles and human waste on your sidewalks isn’t just a disgusting inconvenience, it’s a deadly biological hazard and an indicator of the breakdown of civil society. So the next time a Democrat tells you they know best, laugh and let them know your family deserves better than poo maps, hazmat homeless camps, and little girls having to avoid drug needles on the sidewalk.

Like a true Communist, Sanders throws homeless out in the cold

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The communist party bosses were famous for thinking themselves more equal than others. Bernie Sanders is living up to that reputation. On the coldest night of 2016 so far, Bernie Sanders decided to hold a political rally in a homeless shelter and all the homeless people were put out on the street to freeze.
