This Biden-Pelosi-Obama crowd is a tricky cast of characters that likes to tuck surprise goodies into immense legislation, hoping no one spots them until it’s too late.
Nancy Pelosi said in 2010, that in order for the House to view the ObamaCare bill’s 2,500+ pages, it had to pass it. So, we could just take Barack Obama’s word that if you liked your doctor and health plan, you could keep them.
This year, with a complicit and/or oblivious Joe Biden in the White House, Pelosi’s tax-happy House has slipped into legislation a pilot study to tax all American drivers by the actual miles they each drive, in addition to the per-gallon gas tax. This would need a mileage monitor to track where each vehicle travels every mile.
Then there’s the plan to tax capital gains when they appear on your statement, even BeforeIt is possible to sell your investment, and make a profit.
Now, what’s just come out is a Joe Biden plan to abolish cash bail for violent suspects. I mean, really. You know why any murder suspect would leave town, right?
You reactionaries might not see the equity issue. Accused violent criminals, many black and poor, have had to post large bail to gain freedom, while the rest of us don’t. You can see?
Joe Biden is aware that public approval for jobs in the government has fallen since some time. So, he’s going all-in to keep progressive support.
Biden’s used the same thinking with the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who’ve flowed across the southern border since he took office. You just need to get them in the country unvetted, and unmasked. You can bus them or fly to many states. We’ll get to them later. Don’t hesitate to trust us. Trust us.
Biden’s newest gimmick slithered out this week as part of his 42-page National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality. The administration is claiming it’s the first of its kind, which doesn’t make something necessarily wise. These plans are not common, and there may be good reasons. Who cares? This sounds great when it’s splashed all over friendly media.
Here’s how Joe Biden explains it in the report:
We are also committed to increasing federal oversight and accountability for police departments and prosecutors’ offices to address systemic misconduct, including gender bias and sexual misconduct.
We will also work to abolish cash bail, and we will reform the pretrial system. This is because of the damage these systems cause for Black women, and their families.
This latest cockamamie Joe Biden idea comes as violent crime has surged high on the list of Americans’ serious concerns, even fears. Last year’s murder number totaled 21,500 nationally, 77 percent involving guns. That’s almost 60 homicides per day every day all year.
That’s an IncreasingA staggering 5,000 deaths per year in the United States in 2019 is the highest annual rise in U.S. murders in three decades. Murders climbed 35 percent in cities over a quarter-million.
That’s a lot of body bags, funerals, police reports, and civilian fears, especially in large urban areas where Democrats have profitably ruled for decades.
Chicago is a common choice. In 2020, the Windy City was the Bloody City with 774 murders. This is an increase of 268 compared to the prior year. New York City and Chicago both dropped cash bails for violent crime. One could not have predicted that such crimes would rise.
In the United States, there was an increase of five percent in violent crime rates, including rape and robbery.
Joe Biden worries that anyone accused of killing, stabbing or garroting another person to death should come up with large amounts of money. At least, a portion of the court-set bail must be paid by those charged to help them get out of prison during their often lengthy legal proceedings.
In the past, these sums served as financial barriers to fleeing and provided incentives for bail bondsmen to grab them when they fled. A bail bond that is sufficiently high can prevent an inmate with a history of violence from ever being allowed to leave jail.
Joe Biden believes this is unfair. He wants to have an honor system. (See also illegal alien policy.
It is possible that such lenience might help Biden’s Democrat party maintain the support of the politically illiterate assault-homicide group. You must understand this in the interest of progressive equity.
Although it may seem unlikely, there is no bail that could reduce the danger of knocking off someone. It means you are free to go back out on the streets, doing what you want, in no time, and at no cost.
Others see such a Biden scheme as another revealing sign of his diminished mental capabilities, that he would initiate or fall for progressives’ ridiculous Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card that goes against common sense and removes one more serious disincentive to such lethal anti-social behavior.
And while we’re talking about all-important equity, what about the obligation of government to protect the rights of the overwhelming majority of law-abiding Americans who expect safety and security from a government that locks up dangerous creatures? And doesn’t release them from some cockeyed sense of political justice without a Not Guilty verdict from a jury of their peers.
The same question arose during these protracted pandemic months when many state and local governments simply released prisoners from crowded jails to protect them from – wait for it — the awful prospect of maybe getting COVID like the rest of us living in freedom because we hadn’t been accused of a crime.
The rest of us can live a normal life, like the eyewitnesses to their alleged crimes, without any concern for what they might do.
Joe Biden will be 79 years old next month and has no concerns regarding such retribution throughout his entire life. He’ll never go anywhere ever again without Kevlar-jacketed Secret Service agents with rapid-fire weapons just inside their unbuttoned jackets.
What is the reason for this? Because they are evil, insane criminals who remain in the areas where law-abiding people seek to live, work, and play peacefully despite the lenient policies of politicians.
