Baltimore is the Democrats’ Ground Zero

Here’s the difference, Rep. Cummings:

People are struggling to get IN to the U.S.;
They’re trying to get OUT of W. Baltimore

The genius of Donald Trump is that he forces the Left to defend the indefensible. (It helps that Democrats cannot recognize that talent.) The man says what everyone else sees plainly before them but that the discredited “gate keepers” of polite society — the pretty boys on network news, the pampered Hollywood actors, the public education establishment, etc. — deplore.

He is doing what the Left used to call “speaking truth to power.”


Baltimore lost 1.2% of its residents last year — 3% since 2015, reducing its population to what it was a century ago. “The city’s sea of vacant lots and over 16,000 uninhabitable residential properties with weeds growing out of boarded-up windows has proven intractable. Housing areas say about 20,000 other city properties are unoccupied and pose a risk of becoming crumbling shells.” — Source here.


How these elites howl when Donald Trump calls out the hideous double-standard of a government careerist like U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Baltimore.

Bully-ragging a border security official from the comfort of his Washington D.C. committee chair while his home district rots and riots.

Sure, part of it is payback for the congressman going after Trump’s tax returns. But it works the other way around, too. Democrats are going after Trump by hook or crook because he is exposing their bare nekkidness.

Last three Baltimore mayors, all Democrats:

  • Sheila Dixon — convicted of embezzling gift cards meant for the poor.
  • Stephanie Rawlings-Blake — Stepped down after promoting Baltimore riots.
  • Catherine Pugh — Raided by FBI and IRS for taking bribes. 
    • One of her former police commissioners convicted of tax fraud

Comment BlackThe President knows when he is playing a winning hand. (He also understands that first rule of politics: always play on offense.) His latest tweets: 

So sad that Elijah Cummings has been able to do so little for the people of Baltimore. Statistically, Baltimore ranks last in almost every major category. Cummings has done nothing but milk Baltimore dry, but the public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing!

Someone please explain to Nancy Pelosi, who was recently called racist by those in her own party, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact … that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take… a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. 

Here is the Fox News segment that inspired Trump’s assault:

 

Fox News host: “Democrats like say they care about how migrants are treated at the border. What about families and people in their own district? Congressman Cummings was elected to represent West Baltimore. But living conditions at the border are better than his own district.” 

Maryland resident: “… the conditions in his own district are atrocious and no one I could find said they were afraid of Trump. This is a deadly district where eight days ago five people were shot in less than two hours. … Cummings been in elective office for 33 years. … Baltimore has gotten worse under his watch.”

Blaska’s Free Advice (cheap at twice the price!): Mr. President, work with Maryland’s Republican governor Larry Hogan to take over Baltimore with federal help.

    Soooooo, the last 3 Baltimore mayor’s shared distinctions:

    *All three were POC
    *All three were X-Chromosomal Units
    *All three were forced out/resigned because they were corrupt-to-the-ever-luvin’-core P‘s OS.

    Amazing how the President, with a few well-aimed tweets, has 1) shattered the Democrats’ ban on criticizing POCs in public office, and 2) enticed them to overplay the race card to the point where their squeals of indignation are met with a yawn by most Americans. Like a lion flicking flies off his mane. After the Democrat candidates’ “debate” this week, Trump will have enough material for a whole new Twitter offensive. I can’t imagine how they’ll top their first performance–open borders, free health care for illegals, Medicare for all, “forgiving” a trillion dollars of student debt, etc. But I’m sure they’ll find a way.

    From the bedrock Conservative Newsweek ):

    (bolds/caps mine throughout)
    But the idea that we haven’t been ‘investing’ in Baltimore is nonsense.

    “Federal and state money has been pouring into the city for decades. From fiscal years 2003 to 2013 (the last year for which these reports are available), Baltimore received at least $2.4 billion in federal assistance and another $1.8 billion in state aid. The city also received roughly $1.8 billion in federal stimulus money, of which more than $1.4 billion has been spent so far. And this doesn’t count the billions of dollars received directly by the people who live in Baltimore through various social welfare programs.

    “Yet nearly a quarter of the people in the city still live in poverty, 65 percent above the national level. We’ve clearly been throwing a lot of money at poverty in Baltimore without much result.

    ”Part of the problem, unsurprisingly, is that the city does not make very good use of the money it receives.

    ”In 2012, for example, Baltimore received $9.5 million in federal funds to deal with the city’s growing homeless problem. But according to an audit by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the city did not properly monitor the homelessness funds, paid providers according to a preset formula rather than actual expenditures, lost track of money in several instances, and paid city staffers based on estimates, not the actual time they spent on grant activities.

    The city ended up having to repay nearly a third of the money. Not to worry, though: BALTIMORE EXPECTS TO RECEIVE ANOTHER $21.8 MILLION in homelessness assistance this year.

    More money should do it, and former Hopey Changey Go-To guy on Race Relations, Race-Hustler Extraordinaire Reverend Al Sharpton is in the house; so yeah, things are looking up for Baltimore!

    Gee; I wonder where the governor is? Larry Hogan (republican) was elected in 2015 and re-elected in 2018. He was selected to be the head of the National Governors Assoc.

    Dr. Ben Carson: “As a pediatric neurosurgeon, I spent many hours, sometimes operating all night long, trying to give children of Baltimore and other places around the world a second chance at life. And usually we were successful,

    “But a few days later, I was in a horrible dilemma, because some of those kids had to go back into homes in East Baltimore that were infested with rats and roaches and ticks and mold and lead and violence […] And I didn’t want to send them back. Sometimes I would even consider, you know, extra tests so they could stay in the hospital an extra day or two.”

    All on Lefty’s watch!

    Yet Lefty will be quick to point out that Carson is an Uncle Tom, house-n****r, race traitor, & sell-out.

    Why? Because he made the conscious decision to inhabit a fact-based reality, which required he leave the Lefty Plantation.
