Question: What is the one thing in common about the constant stream of bad economic news produced during the Biden Administration and the constant stream of good economic news produced during the Trump Administration?

#unexpectedlytm of course,

Our friends on the left, in between pretending Joe Biden’s presidency is a success and the economy is fine (which in fairness for the connected class that lives on graft or the very rich who have more money than they can spend it is) they keep informing us that the US will be a better place if you just put them in charge.

Well it’s now working out to good in Seattle if you are the victim of a sexual crime

Seattle police’s sexual assault and child abuse unit staff has been so depleted that it stopped assigning to detectives this year new cases with adult victims, according to an internal memo sent to interim police Chief Adrian Diaz in April.

The unit’s sergeant put her staffing crisis in stark terms. 

“The community expects our agency to respond to reports of sexual violence,” Sgt. Pamela St. John wrote, “and at current staffing levels that objective is unattainable.”

What’s rather amazing is the Seattle Times point to this as a failure of the new mayor who is against the “Defund the police” business that has been pushed. Apparently electing one official who is for them hasn’t convinced potential recruits that the city has their back, meanwhile at the police stations…

The understaffing in the sexual assault unit has drained the morale of its employees, most of whom are overworked and burned out, according to a detective in the unit who requested anonymity because SPD policy prohibited them from speaking with the media. While detectives struggle to make a dent in large child abuse and sexual assault caseloads, the department has also drafted them to work security and traffic control at sporting events. 

So in this case women and children are in fact the hardest hit.

Meanwhile in California they have decided to take a firm stance against school shootings…by firmly deciding that teachers should not have to report potential shooters to authorities:

The California State Senate voted Thursday to end a requirement that students who threaten violence against school officials be reported.

Before the California law was passed, existing law stated that whenever a school official is “attacked, assaulted, or physically threatened by any pupil,” staff was “required to promptly report the incident to specified law enforcement authorities.” The new bill repealed this requirement.

California passed the law just two days after an 18-year-old gunman opened fire on an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, killing two adults and 19 children.

Mind you this isn’t one city that has gone off the rails. This is the representatives of the entire state deciding this is a good idea.

I think it’s safe to say that children will be hardest hit by this one as well.

So remember the left tells you how their policies make everything better, just think who it’s making everything better for.

Unexpectedly of course

Closing thought, remember in both of these cases these cities and states did this to themselves.

Remember Molly Norris!

Yesterday I had friends over and did not go to my laptop until rather late in the day when I discovered this was going on:

 Colleyville, TX synagogue held hostage during livestreamed service; police negotiating with man. “A source on the scene told ABC News that an armed suspect took a rabbi and three others hostage and claims to have bombs in unknown locations. 

A little more:

An apparently armed man took a rabbi and his congregants hostage at a Texas synagogue Saturday, demanding US authorities release a convicted terrorist known as “Lady al-Qaeda” — and phoning a New York City rabbi in a bizarre bid for help, according to sources and reports.

So an armed man takes Jewish Hostages in a synagogue on the Sabbath and demands the release of an Al-Qaeda terrorist. Guess what the first reaction of the usual suspects was:

Because Islam of course is the victim here

News organizations played along with this business in their headlines with the BBC putting hostage in quotes and the telegraph describing the hostage taker in their lead as a: “man with English accent”

Maybe is was Cary Elwes

And the AP jumped right on the “Nothing to do with Islamic Terrorism vs Jews” with the help of an FBI whose capacity to throw what little credibility they still have left out the window has not yet reached its full potential.

Now I’m going to be there were a lot of other possible targets in a place as large as Texas that could have been targeted but he managed to find a Jewish Synagogue in the state for his crime.

Perhaps he figured that based on voting patterns in America it was the target in the state least likely to be populated by armed civilians.

But anyways it’s all over. The hostages have been freed the terrorist is dead and the Al Qaeda member in jail is still in jail (at least until her supporters discover the joys and investment potential of Hunter Biden’s artwork) and the story is done.

And when I say “done” I mean it? Why? Because of DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

If the hostage taker had been a Trump supporter or in DC on January 6th or had expressed a desire for Ron DeSantis in Florida or even had suggested that there had been the slightest possibility of fraud in the last election rest assured you would be able to find stories concerning this attack for days and weeks to come so if you were engrossed in the NFL’s wild card weekend you could catch up in a hurry once the games were done.

Alas it was an Islamist, targeting a Jewish Synagogue on the the Jewish Sabbath to release a member of Al Qaeda which means the story will be gone fast than you can say James T Hodgkinson, Terryous Jorelle Baker , Darrell Brooks or Molly Norris.

Unexpectedly of course.

Update; Told YA

Many years ago Monty Python did a sketch concerning the Piranha Brothers which had the following exchange concerning weather nor not Dinsdale Piranha was nailing peoples heads to the floor:

This came immediately to mind when I heard about Stacy Abrams on Rachel Maddow:

The big difference in the Python sketch and Abrams is in the skit when the interviewer says: “But the police have film of Dinsdale actually nailing your head to the floor” Stig admits that the case. Actual film of Abrams doing this has not dissuaded her Lets go to the film:

I suspect that unlike Mr. O’Tracy she will not be backtracking on her new claim. After all her whole claim to fame is based on this assertion.

Unexpectedly of course
