ABC Blames Increase In Violent Crime On 'Lack of Federal Funding'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/09/2013 6:51:35 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

For the MSM, any excuse is good to push for ever-bigger government . . .

Take today's Good Morning America. ABC used a run-of-the-mill bank robbery story to blame a national increase in violent crime on "a lack of federal funding."

ABC’s mendacity would be laughable — were it not so frightening.

I’m sure more money out of my pocket is the answer. More “programs” always fix what ails us, right?

We’re rocketing towards a $20 trillion debt. I’d say we have spent enough.

ABC's talking heads are complicit in creating race war
and Islamic murders within, and without, of the USA.

I blame Obama and the people who vote for Obama because I am sure, if you look at the stats, that there is a correlation between the two.

So, I guess we’re just imagining all of these various law enforcement agencies all across the country up-gunning with military equipment, armored urban warfare vehicles, and, drones? Ya know, things that cost lots of money. Lots of money.

#1 reason for violent crime increase is refusal to deal with Black Ku Klux Klan and other ethnic Ku Klux Klan racism...especially not holding ethnic groups responsible for the problems in their communities

White Guilt Liberalism also is a big factor.

What was that post last week, about some “journalist’s” association sending out a memo to Big Media, telling them not to report any mention of the Black Crime Wave?

It would be interesting to get those statistics broken down by states, maybe even at the county level. See if there is any correlation between violent crime rates and gun control. In other places and times such a correlation has been shown to exist. So now we have relatively populace areas such as New York with more restrictive gun laws. My theory is that these places are pushing up the national averages.

It is real simple lib lurkers. Criminals, especially violent bullies that are actually cowards, hate armed victims. Take away that fear, and they act out more.

You know removing God from society, embracing homosexuality and making marriage between them, forcing Christians to pay for abortions, and the rampant immorality in our nation which is embraced by our current administration has absolutely nothing to do with it. BUT money can fix anything! Ask Baraq Hussein Obama, professional fund raiser who is good at getting whatever he wants by lying to the low-info idiot voters who approve of him even though he’s raping them with the ACA...

ABC must not know that we have a national debt of over $17 TRILLION, with unfunded liabilities of over $100 TRILLION, and this is far, far more than the wealth on planet earth. Shame on them for their abysmal ignorance of reality. And they call themselves a “news organization”?

What we have in the US is a morals deficit encouraged by the secularists in our society, which is even more deadly than a financial deficit. When God removes His blessing from a nation, it is doomed. Check out Sodom and Gomorrah in the Bible.

$2,472,542,000,000: Record Taxation Through August


September 13, 2013
By Terence P. Jeffrey CNSNews.com

The federal government raked in a record of approximately $2,472,542,000,000 in tax revenues through the first eleven months of fiscal 2013, which ran from Oct. 1, 2012 through the end of August, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement for August.

Yeah, our crime problem definitely stems from the fact that schlubs like us simply aren't sending enough to Fedzilla.

If ONLY those in charge had more power over the productive few, all would be well.

Going back to the start of the War on Poverty in the ‘60s, we have spent many trillions on various anti-poverty programs.

But poverty is as pervasive as ever.

Why are liberals never called out on the failures of their policies? The war on poverty was an abject failure. Yet, nobody, not even Republicans, ever calls out the Democrats and liberals for the failures.

I blame it on Obama, and the Obama effect among young black people. Black violence, which accounts for a lion’s share of our increased violence, comes from the sense of empowerment Obama has given to black youth. It isn’t an empowerment to do better in life, but an empowerment over other people, to beat them, rape them, steal from them, and kill them, to do whatever they please because no one is calling them on it, or stopping them.

Really? I thought the increase in the crime rate was because of global warming.

I feel so foolish. NOT!

War on Poverty in the ‘60s

Ditto.

Obama has just fanned the fires of racism.

We are now seeing the effect of the cause.

Lyndon Baines Johnson's War on Poverty caused this by forcing fathers out of the households.

Most crime and criminals are in the Democrat Party areas, yet they need a scapegoat. So whom better to blame than those who have nothing to do with the crime?

Perhaps we should go after the makers of the youtube videos that caused these crimes.

Where’s ARGUS? Where’s NSA?
