    Because of increasing liberal policies regarding crime, many cities have become hell on earth.  In New York City, there is increasing subway crime & other crimes.  There is more muggings & assaults.  There is also an increase in shoplifting.  In Los Angeles, there are flash mobs stealing from stores & there was follow by driving in which a woman was robbed of her watch.   Recently in Los Angeles, there was a flash mob who ransacked a 7-11 store.   Has extreme/increasing liberal policies regarding crime resulted in a significant increase in crime?   How has extreme liberal policies regarding mollycoddling criminals made many Democratic cities unsafe?  What is YOUR solution?

      I don't like politics,  yet for the first time I'm more so in agreement with conservatives than this new kind of liberal.

      It is very obvious the states that have the most liberals in power, Illinois, California, and New York have some crazy, well not sure I can call them crimes in regard that those states have a funny definition of what constitutes a crime. --- shoplift under $1, 000 buck you don't get prosicuted.

      Smash someone in the head, and put them into a coma, that's alright, no bail, and back on the streets until the Gov remembers  --- she is up for election.

      So, is it not acceptable to shop at a 7-11, and just not pay, I guess it is in some mind these things don't constitute crimes.

      Makes me wonder how an average citizen deals with living with all the kind of crap that is occurring in their neighborhoods. Hopefully, they note it is not happening in the hoods their governors live. But can one ever figure out the liberal mind? It's laughable.

      What is my suggestion as to a solution? Maybe the citizens of these crime-ridden states could come up with a solution. But I don't think that will happen, hate to say they get what they VOTE for... I mean do they not have the choice to vote for politicians that share their concerns? It seems many in these liberal cities are more than willing to live around the lawlessness. Go figure.

      I guess my solution is deprogramming the citizens that vote these fools in...    Or wear a helmet, and for good measures a bulletproof vest, and make sure their kids have one on when going to bed or watching TV.

      It's up to the citizens to solve their crime problems and vote out the fools that keep the crime running rampant. They could start by making sure their rights to safety are more important than law-breakers rights.

    The world has become utterly surreal. Biden becoming POTUS and not being impeached YET? AND contemplating running again???? Sandy Cortez running for President?
    Newsom and Gascon still in office over here in CA, despite recall efforts?

    Those who are contributing to the fall of America know who they are and who is funding them. That they take money and do what they are paid to do, is disgusting.
    For instance, Liz Cheney used to be a true conservative ... what happened? Romney had great things to say before loosing to Obama ... what happened? Antifa? Defund the Police? Marxism? The lies (fake news) of the MSM? The questionable things going on are too numerous to even keep track of. What is happening?

    George Soros. That's what is happening. 
    He is destroying America's world and we are too dumbfounded to know what to think or do.
    To fight back where we can and should will be exhausting. How can we fight back?
    Its hard enough just trying to survive day to day!


    - but I predict we will fight back. When, is the question.

    When?

    ... also, HOW?

      To understand the scope of the impact that Soros has had on Western Civilization, not just America, one has to understand how he has used his billions to cripple national economies and massively influence election outcomes.

        The countless unfounded claims against this successful Jewish businessman could fill books.
        Mr  Soros’s critics barely hide their anti-Semitism anymore.
        The truth is there is only one sordid reason for why attacks on George Soros are constantly trending, and it is not because of his money or his politics.

        It is because he is Jewish.

          This is classic liberal deflection.

          You've just been presented with a vast amount of information from a variety of sources.

          Rather than address what the information shows, you choose to deflect from it.

          Well, you have NO proof people are doing anything to this man because he is Jewish.

          This is more evidence you don't like the facts and truth, so you do what is necessary to deflect from them.

          It's nothing new, nothing I haven't seen before.

          Just realize we can see it for what it is and always will.

          Yeah, I have a few ties to Judaism or "Jewish" folk.  Don't think that's a problem for me.

          Soros is the biggest blight on Western Civilization we have seen in the last 50 years, he has funded more "Non-Profits" that have destroyed social and civil decency and normalcy and shaken the core of more nations, from the UK to Ukraine, than any other individual, this is all historical fact easily researched and found to be true.

            Largely opinion pieces.  Like I said previously, he donates to left wing causes and  candidates.   We can find many billionaires (the Koch network) who donate just as much money to the other side. There are so many anti-Semitic tropes used in relation to Mr. Soros. Many of those conspiracy theories employ longstanding antisemitic myths, particularly the notion that rich and powerful Jews work behind the scenes, plotting to control countries and manipulate global events.

          In my view, one only needs to look at what these men support.

          I would say the only difference is what causes these men support.  I need not dig into Soro's dirt, but only say he does not pay for American values, but values. that oppose American values. It is clear that the Koch brothers support conservative values, as Soros supports socialist Marxist ideologies. He is admittedly a globalist that believes in open borders, and su[ports many organizations that believe the same. This is America, we, or I should say had borders before Biden... And now they are open with close to 5 million migrants walking into the country, along with record-breaking amounts of drugs. Drugs are now the number one killer of citizens between 18 and 45. It well appears some are unwilling to grasp this horrendous problem, much too busy living in the past and concentrating on all Trump. In my view, liberals are kept in a spinning motion, and really are unaware of the horrendous problems that the Biden administration and people like Soro's have caused America. It seems so unrealistic to compare the Kosh brothers to Soro's.

          I suggest for all that support socialist Marxist ideologies find a country that supports these ideals. America has never supported these ideologies, and hopefully never will. That's what makes America special in my view.

            The Supreme court, though the  Citizens United decision  opened the floodgates to unlim­ited inde­pend­ent spend­ing.
            Big money domin­ates U.S. polit­ical campaigns to a degree not seen in decades. Super PACs allow billion­aires to pour unlim­ited amounts into campaigns, drown­ing out the voices of ordin­ary Amer­ic­ans. 
            The super-wealthy have much more influ­ence than the rest of us.
            12 political megadonors are responsible for $1 of every $13 in federal elections since Citizens United and  a total of $3.4 billion between January 2009 and December 2020.
            That is what I'd call un-American.

              And ? I have shared the difference with Soro's and the Koch brothers.

              I must disagree, the Super Pacs offer a voice to both sides.  One only needs to look at what each side is pushing. And funds help voices be heard. Super Pacs have their place.

                Marxist? How so?  Most Marxists consider Mr. Soros just as a liberal billionaire who uses his money to fund causes he believes in, just like most billionaires do. Considering he made a ton of money speculating in currencies, which is about as capitalistic as it gets, I'm sure marxists aren't fans.

                Mr. Soros is a liberal and most Marxists actually hate him just as viscerally as conservatives do. The Marxists hate him for funding anticommunist subversion during the Cold War and sponsoring Centrist liberal movements that oppose socialism.

                Mr. Soros is stuck in the middle and despised by both left and right. Even many leftists who don’t hate him personally, find him problematic.

                The thing is, people like him demonstrate the intrinsically undemocratic nature of capitalism. Money buys you voice. Billionaires inevitably have undue power and influence because they can simply fund organizations that do their will irrespective of what the majority of people want.

                Billionaires can simply ignore governments and do what they want with their own resources. Having billions enables you to become a kind of petty monarch . There is little point complaining about one billionaire and not another, the problem is capitalism itself.

                Personally, I have nothing particularly against most billionaires some of them seem to be good people. I actually really like Bill Gates and think he does a lot of good. Mr. Soros, not to the same degree but he does some good things.

                In reality, Mr Soros is no different than the Koch's. He simply offends people because his social and political leanings are more liberal than theirs.

                The point is, good or not, these people have the power and resources to undemocratically impose their will. I am not ok with that.

                  I have shared my opinion on Soro's. I have no intention of a google war on this guy. I  have been around from the very moment this man became a celebrity to liberals. I will just agree to disagree.

                  His ideologies totally are in opposition to my own.

                    I have listened to enough of his interviews to believe that his outlook, his philosophy is flawed, whether by honest mistake or by outright design.

                    One could look at his early efforts, which helped bring an end to the U.S.S.R., for example, and say they had very good results.

                    Today his efforts have gone so far to destabilize America, Ukraine, and other parts of the world that he is bringing the very things he says he is trying to fight, into power, Autocratic Authoritarianism and social decay.

                    The people of America are worse off for his efforts, car jackings, looting, assaults are all going up in record numbers anywhere a Mayor or Governor or DA where the candidate he supported has won.

                    Ukraine is in a war with Russia, ALL Ukrainians will be the worse for it, just like ALL the Syrians are worse off for that war and ALL Libyans are worse off for that war.

                    The days of Soros' money funding "revolutions" where the people end up the better for it ended shortly after he helped fund the orchestration of the Soviet Unions downfall.

                    With that said, it should come as no surprise that among his many ‘accomplishments’ was playing a major role in financing the overthrow of Ukraine’s government in 2014 and the installment of its current leader, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who is now trying to lead his country through a Russian invasion.

                    George Soros acknowledged in an interview with CNN that he actively contributed to the overthrow of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in 2014. “I created a foundation in Ukraine before it became independent from Russia. The foundation has functioned since then and has played an important role in current events,” explained the financier who established the International Renaissance Foundation, in Ukraine, as part of the Open Society Foundations, in April 1990.

                    Soros is no longer helping move Progressivism or Democracy forward, his efforts are undermining societal stability everywhere in the world and have cost hundreds of thousands of people their lives through various wars and crimes that have been committed because of this instability.

    Thanks Ken for getting the real news out on Soros.
    He is not a pretend Boogeyman, fresh out of work from a stint on 'Stranger Things', he is very real; as real as they come.
