As Crime Concerns Rise, Democrats Work To Fend Off GOP AttacksAllies of President Joe Biden are increasingly confident they can counter Republican messaging. By doing nothing and waiting till they lose to them...pathetic on every front.

Homicides are up, but GOP misleads with claims about blameWASHINGTON (AP) — “SKYROCKETING MURDER RATES,” claimed the National Fraternal Order of Police. “An explosion of violent crime,' said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Democrat-run cities across the country who cut funding for police have seen increases in crime,” tweeted U.S. Sure, just now in PR another cop got kill! Just on a transit stop! Anarchy is not an option! Good job not making that headline not at all confusing. Classic whataboutism.

GOP Rep. Byron Donalds calls CBC silence on membership delay 'off-putting'Republican Rep. Byron Donalds said his office has “not really heard much from the CBC” in the months since he expressed interest in joining the Congressional Black Caucus and that no one has communicated why he is being kept out.

Pennsylvania Lawmaker Has Mic Cut Off After Blasting State's GOP As '100% White'In a fiery speech, Rep. Brian Sims accused Republicans of 'unnecessary overreach' during a debate on a proposal to regulate discarding fetal remains. Keep doing what you’re doing. Keep blasting them. Because they need a voice of reason because they are way out of control these Republicans in the legislature I find them the most repulsive bunch of losers ever. It’s embarrassing to be a Pennsylvanian right now! In a previous fiery speech, Rep. Brian Sims doxxed and harassed a 13 year old girl on a street in his district. Offered money online for her contact information. He’s a loon who deserves nothing but scorn and contempt.
