#2,153 - Mass. HS so rife with crime school committee requests National Guard

2/22/2024
Amid rising concerns about violence, security, and substance abuse at Brockton High School, Massachusetts, a controversial proposal has emerged: deploying the National Guard to assist the school. The suggestion, made by four school committee members, has sparked a debate among Brockton families and officials. While some see this as a necessary step to ensure safety and order, others argue against militarizing the educational environment, fearing it sends a negative message to students. The proposal highlights a broader issue of handling school violence and the extent to which external enforcement should be involved. Governor Healey's office is in contact with school officials, but no decision has been made. This scenario underscores the challenges facing schools in dealing with complex social issues and the balancing act between ensuring safety and maintaining a conducive learning environment. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message

#2,152 - The UNHEARD Cry of Seattle's Small Businesses: Battling Endless Break-Ins

2/22/2024
In Seattle, business owners face a harrowing reality: rampant property crime with little to no government intervention. This bleak scenario is epitomized by Matt Humphrey, owner of Ballard's Seal Barber and Spa, who has suffered four break-ins in two years. Similarly, MK Burn, a jewelry store owner, has been broken into seven times in just two and a half years, even resorting to sleeping in her store with her dog for protection. These frequent incidents, often caught on camera, have left the business community disillusioned and frustrated with the city's response. Many, like Humphrey, feel trapped in a cycle of crime and inaction, with moving out of Seattle posing a financial risk akin to bankruptcy. This sentiment echoes across the city, as business owners call for urgent, effective measures to combat the surge in retail theft and break-ins, a situation they believe is exacerbated by soft crime policies and a failing legal system. As businesses struggle to stay afloat, the question looms: will Seattle's leadership rise to the challenge? --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message

#2,151 -NYC Court ruling against Trump was so wrong - From Appraisers Perspective

2/21/2024
In a recent ruling, a New York City court ordered former President Donald Trump to pay a $350 million judgment in a civil fraud trial involving real estate valuations. This case centers around standard practices in the real estate industry, where developers, including Trump, negotiate asset values with banks for loans. Critics argue this is a common business tactic, not unique to Trump, and see the judgment as part of a broader attempt to undermine him politically. The podcast host, a seasoned real estate appraiser, dissects the trial, highlighting the routine nature of these valuation negotiations in the industry. They contend that the lawsuit against Trump, lacking any actual victims or loan defaults, is baseless and likely to be overturned on appeal. The case's implications extend beyond Trump, underscoring the everyday business realities in real estate and the political motivations behind such legal actions. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message

#2,149 - How George SOROS's Latest MEDIA Move Could Shape the 2024 Election

2/21/2024
George Soros is set to acquire a significant stake in Odyssey, the United States' second-largest radio broadcaster. This move raises concerns among some observers who speculate about his potential influence on public opinion ahead of the 2024 presidential election. Soros, a well-known billionaire with left-leaning political views, has previously been involved in funding district attorneys with lenient crime policies and supporting relaxed immigration laws. Critics argue that his involvement in Odyssey, which owns over 220 radio stations nationwide, might steer media content in a direction they disagree with. This acquisition comes as traditional radio faces challenges from digital media, with Soros’s investment seen as a strategic move to potentially influence media narratives. Amidst these concerns, some point out that Soros's actions are legal and reflect his right to invest as he chooses. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message

#2,148 - ICE's Budget Dilemma: Thousands of Detained Immigrants Facing Potential Release

2/20/2024
The recent ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) draft plan, triggered by a budget shortfall, proposes releasing thousands of detained immigrants, raising significant concerns. The plan is a response to a lack of funding from the recent budget deal, suggesting a political play at hand. Critics argue this move could lead to the release of dangerous individuals into communities. The situation is exacerbated by the federal government's handling of immigration, particularly under President Biden's administration, which is accused of loosening border security through executive actions. This has reportedly drained resources and necessitated a request for additional border security funding. States like Texas are highlighted for their self-reliant approach to border control, contrasting with the perceived federal inaction. The situation at the border remains a contentious issue, with implications for national security, law enforcement, and community safety. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message

Denver's mayor, Mike Johnston, announced significant city service cuts to offset costs from the migrant crisis, blaming Congressional failure to pass an immigration bill.

#2,140 - Newsom is NOW sending additional state prosecutors to help Oaklands soaring crime rates

2/15/2024
California's governor announced plans Thursday to send prosecutors to Oakland in his latest move to crack down on rising crime in the San Francisco Bay Area city where brazen robberies in broad daylight have drawn national attention. Gov. Gavin Newsom days earlier said he would deploy 120 California Highway Patrol officers to also help with targeted crackdowns on criminal activity in Oakland, a city of 400,000 people across the bay from San Francisco that has seen a spike in violent crimes, including serious drug-related offenses, retail theft, and auto burglaries, even though crime in other California urban centers is falling. The additional deputy attorneys general from the California Department of Justice and attorneys from the California National Guard would help Alameda County prosecute suspects arrested for serious and complex crimes, Newsom said.

#2,138 - Out of Control Portland begins foreclosing on 6 vacant homes known for squatters

2/14/2024
It takes only one house to upset an entire neighborhood: In this case, it’s an abandoned Tudor-style home at the end of Southeast Martins Street that has been vacant for years. “It was a chop shop with over 18 people living there. There were children involved, and we had to get DHS involved," said Kari, who lives two doors down and has worked with the neighborhood to mitigate some of the problems there. “It would not surprise me if there was a dead body in there, I swear,” she added. At a closer look, the windows are broken, and the front door has been boarded up. In just the past couple of years, Portland police have responded to the property 32 times. It’s just one of six vacant properties the city is now looking to foreclose on. “These properties have been identified as causing significant problems for neighbors, and they are the subject of multiple and frequent police calls,” said Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler at a recent city council meeting. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/darien-dunstan3/message
