The miles-long queue line waiting to pass the flag-drapped coffin will be cut-off at some point today. The long memorial and mourning week is coming to an end as the official funeral and burial for Queen Elizabeth II is tomorrow morning (British time) with Mr. and Mrs. Biden attending. The Brits have limited invitation only foreign dignitaries to a bare minimum, sans their typical traveling dignitary staffs and family members entourages. And then, as I’ve stated before, there probably will be the formal coronation to-dos for King Charles III. Can’t say how long those will ride-out.
The absolutely wrong “purge” is happening with the nation’s crime surge:
Gianno Caldwell: Illinois’ no-cash bail law will turn the state into ‘The Purge’ … Caldwell’s younger brother was murdered a few months ago in a yet unsolved drive-by shooting in Chicago.
The “Big Uneasy”…
Michael Lee: New Orleans on pace to have one of the highest murder rates in the world in 2022: Some have blamed District Attorney Jason Williams’ ‘selective’ prosecutions for the New Orleans murder surge
And NYC continues its uncivilized dystopia…
REPORT FROM THE BLUE ZONES: Tourist shot in back after refusing robber on NYC street, police say. “Robbery and other major crimes have increased by about 40% in the city recently, NYPD data show.”
One of the loudest “defund/abolish the police!” cities of a couple of years ago…
Emma Freire: Police By Another Name: Demand for private security is booming in Minneapolis. … About a month ago my oldest daughter was at a medical symposium in the city. I was so worried. She even said when she would talk to the hotel transport van drivers they would warn her never to go out at night and never go out alone … preferably “don’t go out” at all. Thankfully she became a bit under-the-weather from the flight and she had no desire for out-to-dinner, shopping and sight-seeking other than the hotel’s very nice room service, “Prince” stocked gift shop, and the view out of her room’s high-rise window when she wasn’t at the symposium’s functions.
Steve Cortes: Crime vs. Law & Order: Pritzker and other Radicals coddle criminals, presenting a stark choice for citizens. … As usual, another weekend in ‘the windy city’ will have yet another murder stat come tomorrow morning.
An Epidemic of Economic Dementia:
This morning on FOX and Friends I heard FBN’s Maria Bartiromo telling viewers not to make any big purchases going ahead.
When illegal immigration facts and stats just don’t jibe with the dems’ narrative(s)…

Cameron Cawthorne: NYC Mayor Adams accuses GOP governors of sending migrant buses to distract from their ‘human rights’ abuses: Eric Adams echoes Democrats calling the border crisis a ‘humanitarian crisis’
After realizing this tweet made their political allies look horrific, NBC News deleted it. pic.twitter.com/nfB1JekQ19

Madeleine Hubbard: NBC deletes tweet with immigration activist’s quote comparing illegal migrants to ‘trash’: The immigration activist said DeSantis sending a plane to Martha’s Vineyard is like “taking my trash out and just driving to different areas.”
Paul Sacca: Ted Cruz blasts Biden as the ‘biggest human trafficker on the face of the planet,’ gives list of places to send migrants next … I’m telling you, somebody here in the states is getting a ‘cut’ of that cartel money.
Losing our religion…
Typically, when something very big, and bad, happens people tend to “rediscover/find God”. I dread that might well happen sooner rather than later. As is said, “God, help us”…
VIDEO: Christian faith in America has ‘never’ been at a lower point: Samaritan’s Purse President Rev. Franklin Graham weighs in on a new study that suggests Americans are rapidly losing religious faith … Losing “faith” or losing formal organized “religion”?
The corruption of the corrupters…
David Strum: Trump/Russia investigator hid ties to Russian billionaire: If there is one thing you can count on with The Swamp it’s that every time they accuse a Republican of doing something, they themselves are likely to be guilty of that very thing themselves…
Joe Concha: Why has fact-checking disappeared under Biden? … I’m old enough to remember when the liberal MSM insisted they wanted to have live line-by-line ‘fact-checking’ during Pres. Trump’s SOTU and other speeches and addresses to the nation. Even liberal Geraldo thought that was total bullshit.
And more Biden/dem money laundering to Ukraine…
Eric Cervone: US announces $600m more in military aid to Ukraine
The new round of funding comes on the heels of a $2.8 billion infusion announced earlier this month and nearly $3 billion announced in late August. The total amount of U.S. aid to Ukraine now stands at nearly $15.9 billion since President Joe Biden took office, reports the Associated Press. According to Blinken’s statement, this is the twenty-first time the U.S. has sent weapons to Ukraine.
