  • Can you explain how? I don't have a lot of experience with bike theft, so it makes enough sense to me that the frame being locked would be enough to prevent the bike from going anywhere

  • Secret Service rushes Trump off stage after shots fired at his Pennsylvania rally
  • You know Trump was already president once, right? It's not like it's a secret that he's anti-LGBTQ people.

    We Made A List Of All The Anti-LGBT Stuff Trump Has Done As President from 2018, it includes

    • Saying it’s legal to fire workers for being transgender.

    • Arguing that it’s legal to fire workers for being gay.

    • Making transgender female prisoners live with male prisoners.

    • Telling the Supreme Court that shopkeepers can turn away LGBT customers.

    • Withdrawing protections for transgender students.

    • Refusing to investigate anti-transgender discrimination complaints in public schools.

    • Trying to kick transgender people out of the military.

    • Issuing a religious liberty policy.

    • Starting to rescind protections for transgender patients.

    and their list goes on.

    The Trump administration on Friday finalized a rule that would remove nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people when it comes to health care and health insurance from 2020

    A controversial new rule that could allow homeless shelters to turn away transgender people based on physical appearance is the Trump administration’s latest attempt at restricting trans rights. also from 2020

    I'm not sure it's possible to get a full picture of everything Trump did wrong, even if you narrow it down to specific topics like LGBT rights. A lot of these things aren't crimes, but that's only because he was the one writing the laws and policies.

  • Home Insurance Rates in America Are Wildly Distorted. Here’s Why: Climate change is driving rates higher, but not always in areas with the greatest risk.
  • But new research points to a striking pattern: Higher premiums are being charged in states where regulators apply less scrutiny to requests for rate increases, compared with states where officials question the justifications offered by companies and try to keep rates low, the data show.

    Not what I was expecting to read, but not that surprising either.

  • 2024 could be world’s hottest year as June breaks records
  • Every month since June 2023 – 13 months in a row – has ranked as the planet’s hottest since records began, compared with the corresponding month in previous years, the EU’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said in a monthly bulletin.

    From the second line of the article. Here's the monthly bulletin they're talking about.

    Keep in mind that this is the global average temperature, there could be some places (like Northern Spain) that experienced lower temperatures.

  • NATO chief Stoltenberg sidesteps questions on Biden's health
  • But he said any further comments could be damaging for NATO.

    "One of the reasons why NATO is successful is that we have always stayed out of domestic political issues," he said.

    "If I start to say anything that makes it possible to connect me to ongoing political debates in any allied country, I will actually weaken the alliance."

    He wouldn't, and he knows it. He was asked about Biden's health and did his job by not really answering.

  • Biden’s debate performance sets off alarm bells for Democrats
  • How do we know that one of them and not half of them are criminals

    We've already done this, pay attention.

    The research does not support the view that immigrants commit crime or are incarcerated at higher rates than native-born Americans.
    ...
    What’s more, the arrival of record numbers of immigrants at the United States–Mexico border over the past two years has not corresponded with an overall increase in crime in so-called “blue” cities where many of the recent arrivals have settled. In most places, the opposite has happened — crime, including violent crime, has trended downward (other than larceny and a small increase in robbery) after peaking across the country in 2020. This has been true since the spring of 2022, the year Republican governors, including those in Arizona, Florida, and Texas, began transporting undocumented immigrants to cities with more immigrant-friendly policies, including Boston, Chicago, New York, and Washington.

  • CNN's debate was no fair fight
  • Am I supposed to be seeing a fact check during the debate? Because it seems more like "I want to move on to another subject" and "well anyways" the first few times the moderator speaks.

  • Biden’s debate performance sets off alarm bells for Democrats
  • NY has been riddled with crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the recent days, weeks, and months.

    One last thing, now that I'm back at my computer:

    • Continued declines across most major crime categories prevailed during January 2024, compared to the first month of last year, and included substantial drops in murder, rape, burglary, and felony assault.

    • Incidents of shootings, murder, and other bellwether crimes in New York City were markedly reduced again in February compared to the same month last year, while major offenses committed in the city’s subway system dropped more than 15 percent. Throughout the five boroughs, overall crime continued its downward trajectory, dipping another 1.1%.

    • New York City saw continued reductions in overall crime through the first quarter of 2024, both above ground, on streets throughout the five boroughs, and below ground, within the nation’s largest subway system. The single month of March 2024, compared to the same month last year, experienced even more drastic crime declines.

    • Overall index crime across New York City dropped another 4.9 percent in the month of April compared to the same month last year, as major crimes in the nation’s largest subway system plummeted another 23 percent, continuing a downward trend that saw previous transit system decreases

    • Overall index crime across New York City dropped another 2.4 percent in May 2024, compared to the same month last year, with the major crime categories of murder, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny—auto each seeing dramatic reductions. ‎‎
      ‎‎

    The point I was making with NY, is as of recent, like I mentioned before there’s crimes committed by illegals.

    So what? There are statistically a lot more crimes being committed by US citizens. Should we start deporting/exiling our own citizens? Should we keep increasing our prison population? Or should we not hold our own citizens to the same kind of standards that you want to apply to everyone else in the world?

  • Biden’s debate performance sets off alarm bells for Democrats
  • 3 examples isn't a great way to show nationwide trends.

    Over 2000 convicted criminals - illegals captured by ICE

    This is from 2015.

    In New York, a sanctuary city that has received the most immigrants from Republican-run border states, crime decreased in most major categories in 2023 compared to the year before, as confirmed by a January report from the New York City Police Department. This follows reductions in most crime categories in the city in 2022. New York City remains one of the safest big cities in the country despite sensational claims that it is being overwhelmed by crime.

    From the same article linked above, since you seem so obsessed with New York City.

  • Biden’s debate performance sets off alarm bells for Democrats
  • rampant crimes across the nation committed by illegal immigrants

    The research does not support the view that immigrants commit crime or are incarcerated at higher rates than native-born Americans.
