A Democratic problem

Clarice Feldman writes at the American Thinker about a major public safety problem for Democrats.

This week, the Democrats have been revealed as the party that exposes us to (1) criminal mayhem (often anti-Semitic) on the streets of New York and (2) terrorism everywhere as they consistently ignored it, indeed, paid off the perpetrators with pallets of airlifted unmarked bills and praised the worst of its perpetrators. The President has the magical power, it seems, to get idiots and criminals to expose themselves.

Beginning on the first of this year, New York’s “no bail no jail” law, enacted by the Democratic legislature and put into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo went into effect. The law allows those arrested for a large variety of crimes, including some that create serious consequences for others — like third-degree assault, making terrorist threats, selling firearms to minors, money laundering to support terrorism and grand larceny — to be released immediately on no bail. One assumes if they later refuse to appear for a court hearing they might well also be released on their own say-so. The new law provides that hindering prosecution, after all, is a no-bail crime. …

… Precision bombing in Iraq killed the number-one terrorist in the world, far more dangerous to U.S. personnel and interests than Osama bin Laden was when he, a frail, isolated old man, was killed: Qassem Suleimani. …

… The Democrats’ response had been laughable when not contradictory. Just as the impeachment effort exposed Joe Biden’s corruption, the attack on this sweeping retaliation against Iran and Iranian-backed terrorists exposes how closely the Democrats have been coordinating with the thugs in Iran.
