First here is a quick word about the US economy:
The economy added 157,000 jobs in July, which was below expectations, but May and June job numbers were revised upward significantly. Breitbart News reports:
Nonfarm payroll growth for June was revised up to 248,000 from 213,000. May’s jobs were revised to 268,000 from 244,000. So what seems to have happened is that many of the jobs that were expected in July were actually created in prior months.
Manufacturing (in July) added 37,000 jobs, with most of the gain in the durable goods component. Over the past 12 months, manufacturing has added 327,000 jobs. Construction added 19,000 jobs and has increased by 308,000 over the year.
One reason job creation may have (slowed): the closing of Toys R Us. The category for toy and hobby stores fell by 32,000 workers.
Note that +37,000 number for manufacturing jobs. That is the most important number and it is growing and growing under Trump after falling for decades.
Overall the economy is very healthy. Everyone knows it. We can expect steady growth for decades as long as Trump policies continue. The economy is just starting to blossom. The Reagan economic boom lasted 26 years!
Now here is today’s main commentary:
Sadiq Khan is the British-born muslim mayor of London. His muslim parents immigrated from Pakistan. Khan is a little man (5 feet 5 inches tall) and is a radical muslim sympathizer. He is also a virulent Trump hater.
Under Khan’s mayoralty since 2016 crime in London has skyrocketed. In an article on Fox News called Anti-Trump London Mayor Sadiq Khan under fire for ‘pathetic’ response to crime surge Adam Shaw reviews what is happening in London. Each excerpt from Shaw is followed by a Nikitas3.com comment:
Shaw writes: London Mayor Sadiq Khan is under increasingly heavy fire from his predecessor, residents and even President Trump over rising crime in the city – though Khan says police cuts from the Conservative government are to blame.
Nikitas3.com comment: Oh, sure, blame it on the conservatives as liberals always do. This is like Democrats in the US blaming 9/11 on America.
Actually Khan could legitimately blame it on others – on liberals that is. It is decades of political correctness, permissiveness and open borders that are fueling the London crime wave, like these examples:
*London police have been replaced in thousands of cases by fake police called Police Community Support Officers who have little enforcement power and, of course, no guns. There is a hilarious video on the internet of a group of a dozen PCS officers trying to corner one single bad buy but running away like frightened chickens when the guy turned on them.
*Criminals have gotten lenient treatment for decades under EuroAmerican liberalism; this simply encourages more crime.
*The crime wave in Britain, committed particularly by young immigrant males from muslim and African nations, is being fueled by foreigners who have been welcomed into Britain by the Labour party and the communists.
But it is not just a crime wave. Increased terrorism is making Britain a mockery of what it once was, just as liberal American cities are suffering with terrorism, crime and homelessness.
Shaw writes: Boris Johnson, the former (London) mayor who recently resigned as U.K. foreign secretary, tore into Khan in a recent Op-Ed for The Daily Telegraph for glamming it up at movie premieres while crime spirals out of control.
“Sadiq Khan may be a twinkle-toed mover on the movie premiere red carpet, but his pirouettes on the subject of knife crime are a positive wonder. He blames funding (when he was left with a large war chest by me); he blames the Tory Government; he blames society. He blames everyone but himself, when it is his paramount duty to keep Londoners safe,” Johnson wrote. “It is a pathetic performance.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Pathetic indeed. But it follows a pattern. Movie premieres are the bailiwick of the left-wing entertainment industry that loves empty celebrities like Khan despite their extremism and their policy failures.
Shaw writes: During his trip to the U.K. earlier this month, Trump doubled down on his long-standing feud with Khan, an outspoken Trump critic. “You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job,” Trump said in an interview with The Sun, blaming Khan on both terrorism and crime. “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Good. Trump is always on the mark.
Shaw writes: London temporarily overtook New York in the number of murders in early 2018. In February, London’s police investigated 15 murders while New York saw 11 homicides. In March, the Metropolitan Police murder numbers increased further to 22, while the NYPD’s jumped to 21.
Nikitas3.com comment: There is one big difference between the cities. Guns are hard to get legally in Britain. So Britain can’t blame its high murder rate on guns like they always do. In fact the rise in knife murders in the last few years has rocked London. So what does Mayor Muslim do? USA Today reports (and this is not a spoof):
London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a crackdown on knives Sunday in response to the rising levels of violence in London, which recently surpassed New York City’s homicide rate for the first time.
“No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife,” Khan tweeted. “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
Notice that he does not say that “criminals” will feel the full force of the law. So butchers and chefs beware. London will get you.
Shaw writes: London also is facing a rise in acid attacks, skyrocketing by more than 78 percent over the past two years, with 465 such offenses in 2017, up from 260 in 2015, according to police figures obtained by the Evening Standard.
Nikitas3.com comment: Acid attacks?! Where criminals throw disfiguring acid on their victims? Yes, siree, welcome to London in 2018. But then again the muslim mayor warned us. The Daily Mail wrote in 2017:
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’.
Mr Khan told the Evening Standard: ‘It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things.
This is the liberal line around the globe, that we must accept more crime and terrorism as a fact of life. This is why Khan will be voted out in 2020.
Shaw writes: But Khan has responded by noting that violent crime is rising across England and Wales as a whole, and has blamed Prime Minister Theresa May’s government, and that of her predecessor David Cameron, for cutting police funding.
Nikitas3.com comment: Gee, the crime and terrorism couldn’t possibly be a result of all of those extremist muslims and savage African immigrants could it?!
Naw… It must be those little old British ladies drinking their tea and then stepping out for a little fun throwing acid on their fellow citizens.
Here is a report from the US, from KIMT in Rochester, Minnesota:
Authorities say a 74-year-old man had his eyes gouged out of their sockets during a domestic incident Friday afternoon.
Authorities say the eyes were “nowhere to be found” and the victim also had teeth knocked out.
Mahad Aziz, 18, has been charged with first-degree assault in connection to the incident at 310 31st St. NE.
Mahad Aziz sounds like a muslim name. After all Minnesota is a hotbed of radical islam in America. But don’t tell that to the Democrats in Minnesota who welcome all muslims with open arms. Meanwhile in Oregon we are seeing a liberal city government act against law and order. Look at this from The Daily Caller:
Portland, Oregon, police refused to respond to at least two 911 emergency calls from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees inside their offices where violent protesters held week-long demonstrations.
The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing ICE employees, wrote a cease-and-desist letter to Mayor Ted Wheeler, asking him to ensure the police enforce the law equally and protect innocent people.
“Your current policy forbidding Portland law enforcement agencies from assisting employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency who request law enforcement assistance while at or away from work is a violation of the United States Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause,” the letter says.
Demonstrators, some affiliated with the domestic terrorist organization Antifa, set up a city of tents outside the ICE offices. After setting up camp, they became violent and incited violence several times.
So once again we see liberals protecting bad people and allowing good people to be threatened, intimidated and even attacked. This is happening to Trump supporters in particular. Three Trump supporters have even been murdered since 2016.
In the case of the inauguration-day rioters protesting president Trump in Washington, DC only 21 out of 234 arrested have been charged with a crime. And we can expect a liberal judge to let those 21 go without any jail time.
Here’s one more just for good measure:
In 2017 a liberal Boston judge named Lisa Grant lowered the sentence to less than one year for an African immigrant who robbed a bank. If it had remained a one-year sentence – which is light for armed bank robbery anyway – the immigrant would have been deported, which Grant did not want.
After serving his jail time the immigrant murdered two prominent Boston doctors.
So you wonder how many medical degrees the African has to replace those two doctors.
The answer is none. And this is how the immigrant animals – and the leftists and muslim activists who protect them – destroy durable Western cultures.
