Democrat priorities, not with the people…

| October 1, 2022

Kamala Harris advocated basing climate change aid on the skin color of the communities. She feels that they are “more impacted” by the climate “crises”. However, the effort to “fight for the disadvantaged” takes a back seat to politics when dealing with a fentanyl crisis related bill. No demographic is safe from Fentanyl. Democrats stopped this bill from moving forward. Finally, Democrat LaToya Cantrell socked New Orleans taxpayers with a massive bill for her international flights in first class, which included seats that could be folded out flat.

Providing Aid Based on Community Demographics

When it comes to climate change related aid, communities of color will receive focus. This is according to Kamala Harris. She was addressing Women’s Leadership Forum hosted by the Democratic National Committee. Harris argued that the low-income community, and community of color, are impacted more by “extreme conditions”.

From Blaze Media:

Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris said at a forum that the Biden administration would focus on “communities of color” when doling out aid related to climate change.

Harris was responding to a question from actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas at the Democratic National Committee Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday. Jonas asked about aid in Florida from Hurricane Ian, and also to global leadership on the issue.

“It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions, and impacted by issues that are not of their own making,” said Harris.

“And women!” interjected Jonas.

“Absolutely,” Harris agreed.

“And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out in the same place, and if we want people to be in an equal place sometimes we have to take into account those disparities, and do that work,” Harris continued.

Democrats Block Bill Against Fentanyl

Republicans attempted to pass a bill that would place Fentanyl-related substances on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. If this made it into law, the government would more aggressively be able to go after offenders who contribute to this crise and who contribute to injuring thousands of Americans in the name of profit. However, the Democrats blocked the bill.

From The Blaze:

Fentanyl is the leading killer of adults ages 18-45. Last year, opioids killed an estimated 80,816 Americans. 10% of the significant drop in U.S. life expectancy, now at its lowest point in over two decades, is attributable to such overdoses.

China is reportedly the principal source of the fentanyl flooding America’s illicit drug market. Mexican cartels, partnered with the Chinese and using Chinese-sourced materials, manufacture and then traffic much of the killer drug over the U.S. border.

The “Halt All Lethal Trafficking of Fentanyl Act” (H.R. 6184), sponsored by Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) and introduced with Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio) on December 8, 2021, had 88 cosponsors, all of whom were Republicans.

Griffith stated earlier this week that the bill would “strengthen law enforcement’s ability to prosecute fentanyl traffickers and act as a deterrent.”

He previously indicated that it will also help “curb overdose deaths.”

New Orleans Mayor Lavishly Spent Taxpayer Money for International First Class

LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans Mayor, is reported to have spent an excessive amount of taxpayer dollars for flying first class. She is a Democrat, who is facing the reality of a petition drive for a recall election. The two individuals who generated the petition are Democrats. They argue that the mayor failed to put New Orleans first and that she failed to carry out the responsibilities of the mayor.

From Based Politics:

She traveled to sister cities Ascona, Switzerland, and Juan Antibes-les-Pins on the French Riviera this summer, costing the City of New Orleans close to $45,000, including first-class international airfare with lie-flat seating.

The city’s travel policy requires employees to pay the difference in cost for work-related airfare upgrades, stating “employees are required to purchase the lowest airfare available … employees who choose an upgrade from coach, economy, or business class flights are solely responsible for the difference in cost,” Fox News reported.

But Cantrell hasn’t paid the near $30,000 bill from her first-class international flight upgrades over the summer.

She has claimed the visits are an investment in the city and necessary for her safety.

“My travel accommodations are a matter of safety, not of luxury,” The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reported. “As all women know, our health and safety are often disregarded and we are left to navigate alone. As the mother of a young child whom I live for, I am going to protect myself by any reasonable means in order to ensure I am there to see her grow into the strong woman I am raising her to be. Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world Black women walk in.”

Mayor Cantrell took reasonable steps to protect herself by flying First Class. Everyone knows that terrorists are not allowed out of the Coach section.

I don’t care how stimulated a MC1R gene expression of the criminal be, I just care that the hemp necklace is adequate of its intended purpose when found guilty in violations of the public trust.

Civic Officership is a privilege, not a blank fucking check.

Oh, and Kamelata is a whore.

On the fentanyl follow the money (10% to the big guy). Seattle/King County Washington (major D party) have made personal possession amounts (less than a gram) of meth, heroin and fentanyl not eligible for prosecution until the 3rd offence, and then it’s a misdemeanor. Homeless smoke fentanyl (burn it on foil and inhale) on the public bus/trains where there is less breeze with the transit agency telling employees to wear a mask to stay safe. Now Seattle/King County libraries and schools are stocking up on Narcan after over 40 overdoses this year, mostly in libraries where they can can hide in the book aisles, light fentanyl on foil and inhale it away from breezes.

Stop spending money on narcan, and it becomes a self resolving problem..

UpNorth

Well, the city, county and state governments have to have some Narcan on hand, for the police officers, fire fighter paramedics and the EMTs in the ambulances who get exposed to the fentanyl while trying to save some dumb ass suffering through his third or fourth O.D.

Fyrfighter

Fair enough. There is a particularly strong batch working it’s way through Colorado right now..

I’ve been turning more into a “cull the weak” kind of guy lately. Even if you can get them off the needle or the pill they take Subutex for the rest of their lives and are generally so broken that they are a welfare soak forever. I don’t like saying that people are useless but if their sole function in life is to ride around on a bicycle stealing things or selling their bodies to feed a drug addiction than we are all probably better off without them.

The Stranger

I’ve been saying that if we go the legalization route, that should include zero access to social services. No treatment, recovery, or welfare programs. They wanna chase Death, let’s give ‘em what they want. Unfortunately, where we’re at as a society, that would never happen. We’d end up subsidizing them until they die.

Commie-Tsar

The Commissariat agrees with the playing of the “race card” to further the transformation of this country into a socialist paradise for all!

If you think the airline seats are bad from madam mayor you really haven’t been paying attention. Since in office the mayor has:

  • Served as a character witness for a 13 year-old convicted of multiple armed robberies, assaults and carjackings against women during the victim impact hearing
  • Been crashing rent free at a Jackson Square Apartment
  • Allowed the city to overtake St. Louis as Murder Capitol of US (at least they are #1 at something)
  • Got in a throw down in the ladies room at the Rob-49 rap concert. Video footage is out there.
  • Got a restraining order against the City Council when they began to investigate corruption within her staff and advisors on various issues.

This is just crib notes. After that first one she lost support of practically every woman in the city.

What is it with that city electing incompetant racists, based on NOTHING more than skin color?

Blue dog socialist dems. That should tell ya everything you need to know.

Somehow I don’t think that a “Climate Event” can tell the difference between a “Community of Color” and a ritzy, gated community. Now tornados, on the other hand, love to smash up some trailer parks. Here’s an idea for all you “disadvantaged POC”, You haven’t advanced yourself despite all of the billions of $s you’ve been given over the decades. Get off your ass, stub out your Camel (Newport), pick up a shovel, and go to work. Clean up the mess you’ve made for yourself.

Fentanyl, the new crack cocaine. Another tool to keep them on the plantation. Raise another statue to St. George.

The Florida Sec of State basically is doing press conference by correction to the VP saying: Nope, never gonna happen you crazy bitch. That’s the Readers Digest version anyway.
