1 – Liberal city could lose hundreds of cops over vaccine mandate
Fox News reports: Over 200 Seattle police officers could lose their jobs over the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate because they’ve either not received the jab or would refuse to hand over their private medical data, according to a report Monday.

The Jason Rantz Show on the city’s KTTH said the number represents about 20% of the department’s deployable staff. The department and Mayor Jenny A. Durkan’s office did not immediately respond to after-hour emails from Fox News.

No national statistics show the vaccination rate for America’s entire population of first responders but individual police and fire departments across the country report figures far below the national rate of 74% of adults who have had at least one dose.

The KTTH report said Durkan’s mandate requires city workers to take the jab by Oct. 18 or face termination. The report said losing 200 additional officers after last year’s push to defund could be devastating to the city.

DML: Who else thinks Dems are trying to use this to cull out conservatives from every level of society?

2 – Newsom Wants Taxpayers to Spend $16.7M on ‘Cash Assistance’ for Afghans
Breitbart reports: California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), currently facing a recall election on September 14, wants the state’s taxpayers to spend $16.7 million on “cash assistance” and “other services” for Afghans who are resettled in California as part of President Joe Biden’s massive resettlement operation.

In a statement, Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature asked that about $16.7 million in taxpayer money be redirected to aid Afghans resettled in California by the Biden administration.

“The Governor, with support from legislative leaders, is requesting $16.7 million in general funds, which will be used to provide cash assistance and other services for newly arriving Afghans in the state,” a press release from Newsom’s office reads.

Newsom’s push to spend taxpayer money on cash assistance and other services for Afghans comes as nearly 162,000 residents in the state are experiencing homelessness on any given day. Likewise, California continues to face a major opioid and drug overdose crisis.

DML: If Californians don’t oust Newsom in this recall election, their state is toast!

3 – Virginia to remove 12-ton Robert E. Lee statue in state capital this week
ABC News reports: More than a year after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam ordered the removal of a giant statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in the state’s capital, the monument will be coming down this week, state officials announced Monday.

The statue, erected in Richmond in 1890, will be removed from Monument Avenue this Wednesday, nearly a week after the Supreme Court of Virginia cleared the way for the state-owned monument to come down following several legal battles.

“Virginia’s largest monument to the Confederate insurrection will come down this week,” Northam said in a statement. “This is an important step in showing who we are and what we value as a Commonwealth.”

Northam ordered the removal of the statue in June 2020, amid nationwide protests against symbols of racism and oppression that erupted following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis while in police custody.

DML: Well, there goes another piece of history.

4 – Brazen shoplifters walk out of home improvement store with full carts
Fox News reports: Video of shoplifters stealing thousands of dollars worth of electrical wires from a Lowe’s store in Oregon has angered local residents.

“It was so blatant, that’s what riled me up,” Keizer, Oregon, resident Andrew Sullivan, who filmed the incident, told the Keizer Times. “They were just strolling through the parking lot, just riding the carts.”

The incident unfolded in broad daylight on Aug 25, with the video showing two men pushing shopping carts loaded with electric wire walking out of the Lowe’s doors as two employees are helpless to stop them.

Lowe’s eventually reported the incident, and an investigation is ongoing, but Keizer Police Lieutenant Andrew Copeland noted that in Oregon, many jails aren’t taking offenders such as shoplifters, in order to cut back on their populations during COVID-19.

“Once you’ve stolen from Lowe’s once and know they can’t stop you, there’s no real consequence,” Copeland said, noting employees at many chain stores aren’t allowed to stop shoplifters. “Second thing is, these people know they can’t go to jail.”

DML: What’s worse… the theft, or the blatant lack of conscience and moral decay that accepts it as normal?

5 – College Football Team Finds Way To Honor 13 US Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan
The Daily Caller reports: The Auburn Tigers found a way to honor the 13 U.S. service members killed in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan during the United States’ withdrawal from the country.

“I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom,” a tweet from Auburn’s official Twitter account read over the weekend. “Today we honor the 13,” it added. “Because of their sacrifice, it is possible to have days like today.”

DML: Pure class!

  1. Such a Disgrace America has turned itself into. Instead of people banning together for Freedom, they lined like puppets on a string to to destroy America. Home of the Brave. Land of the FREE. Remember 911 & the 1st responders who risked everything to save somebody they didn’t know. How soon this disgraceful nation forgot. I hope those 200 officers do leave Portland & do stand firm regarding the Covid shots. We just don’t know or are not being told the truth about it! Let Oregon burn. They destroyed it all summer with their summer of love B.S. now take care of it yourselves & keep yourselves safe. You asked for it & now it’s here..Wait until the wallets open real wide for the Invasion of people who were allowed to come..Just look at the very liberal California State & tell me it won’t hit wallets! Tired of Democratic B.S. for power!!! MAGA. English is the Official Language in U.S. Do not forget it!!!!

  2. I live in Idaho, work in Washington Health Care. I was mandated to vax. Believing Idaho would eventually mandate, I vaxed. I am not against vaccines. I am against lies and mandates. I am pro paycheck. I am a voter!

  3. Regarding California and Newsom. That scumbag will survive the recall in my opinion. Even without cheating, the sheer number of illegal aliens (highest in the nation) will vote to keep Newsom in office.

    Another topic we glance over is over teh decades, the millions of illegals aliens in Calif had US born children who as adults altend to vote in the 90 percentile as faithful unwavering Democrats.

    California is a graveyard from leftism gone berserk. We can inlybserve as a beacon or warning to other states to avoid our pitfalls. These ungrateful Afghanis will also become the next group of leftist voters.

  4. Brace yourselves for another 9/11 attack by Taliban. They are weaponized by what Biden left behind, and their mentality is such that once they get away with something they will do it again.

    This country is a target for Taliban, and most likely others as well (China comes to mind). We have lost the support of former allies, one of which said they would no longer help us as long as Biden is our president.

    The only thing we have left is prayer. As a child I was taught: What a terrible web we weave when first we practice to deceive. How true it is and We The People are paying a price beyond comprehension because some Democrats decided to steal our election. This all could have benn avoided if the Democrats had not decided that a man with many signs of mental disability should be our president. THE REASON: They hate Trump so much that they will willingly turn this country over to someone who does not know what he is doing. Actually more likely someone who knows what he is doing and is taking delight that we are in the turmoil that we are now in is the real cause.

  5. The reason most companies do not allow their employees to stop shoplifters is because it is a liability issue. The chain could be sued for millions over an incident that only involved hundreds or thousands of dollars. Most big box stores used to have loss prevention people. Most have eliminated the position. Losses due to theft are written off.
