Schumer: “I’d love to make them states!”



Chuck Schumer

52…? Nifty United States!

Democrats are fired up to take back the Senate, and big changes could be on the way if it happens.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said “everything is on the table” if Democrats win the Senate majority, including granting Puerto Rico and Washington D.C statehood.

“I’m not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing. We are going to get a whole lot done. And as I’ve said, everything, everything is on the table,” the New York Democrat said on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Wednesday, via the New York Post.

He also said that Senate Democrats are “using all the tactics [they] can” to slow down or block the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

When asked about the possibility of making Washington and Puerto Rico states, Schumer confirmed that literally, anything is possible.

“I would — believe me, on D.C and Puerto Rico, particularly if Puerto Rico votes for it, DC already has voted for it and wants it. I’d love to make them states,” he said.

With the election only 33 days away, Democrat candidates are doing all they can to defeat their Republican competitors.

And if they accomplish their goal, the “50 nifty United States” may be no more….

    Don’t forget American Samoa and Guam. Maybe they could make some of the islands in the Hawaiian area into states as well.

    Hi, Leo…just a little laugh for you, I remember singing Fifty Nifty United State in chorus in high school, and to this day I can name all of the 50 states in alphabetical order, I have to sing it when I do, but I can do it…LOL The downside is my voice isn’t what it used to be due to damage to damage to my vocal cords, so my grandchildren laugh like the dickens when I sing. I just have to say I’m so very proud of you! It took such courage what you did and I’m truly impressed! Love ya, Leo!

Real estate websites Redfin, will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens




The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports

In a blog post, CEO of David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on to rethink the safety information we share on and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
