LOOK BACK AT 2021 – WOKE

‘At Its Heart Wokeness is Divisive, Exclusionary, and Hateful’ – Elon Musk:

In their interview with Elon Musk, The Babylon Bee boys brought the funny. But what viewers might not anticipate is just how many compelling, thoughtful answers their questions managed to elicit from the billionaire. The group started out sharing a laugh over classic Bee headlines, with Musk quipping that it’s “actually true that Gavin Newsom is U-Haul salesman of the year.” But the world’s richest man quickly grew pensive, reflecting on what has happened in recent years to the state he once called home. “California used to be the land of opportunity. Now it has become sort of the land of over-regulation, over-litigation, and scorn,” he observed.

From the collapse of California, the discussion turned to the collapse of mainstream comedy, which Musk ascribed to an unwillingness to punch left, no matter how warranted. That, he explained is how he became a Babylon Bee fan – because satire sites like The Onion began to focus more on upholding a liberal narrative than telling jokes. “It used to be much more even handed, the Onion,” Musk said. “And then they just got the woke mind virus.” He had much the same criticism of Saturday Night Live, a show he guest-hosted in May, to the consternation of several cast members who publicly objected to his appearance.
 

Black Lives Matter Activists Tell Students Misogyny, White Supremacy And Capitalism Are To Blame For Their Problems:

Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists told students that they live in a “misogynistic, masculine society” that claims “women should stay at home” to cook and clean and that as black women, they are “overlooked a lot” and encounter people who want to harm them because of who they are, according to a video. Four female activists with Indy10 Black Lives Matter, Jessica Louise, Kyra Jay Harvey, Michelle Anastasia and Leah Derray, gave a talk to over 150 participants during the spring of 2020, where they told students that black people often don’t have the same opportunities as their white counterparts, according to a video of the lecture given to students at the K-8 Butler University Laboratory School 60. The DCNF obtained the video from Tony Kinnett, district science coordinator & instructional coach for Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) and founder of Chalkboard Review.

Derray said she and her fellow activists like what they do because it allows them to speak at schools and engage people about “the history of revolution and activism in this county…as it relates to black people.” The women also said they “fight against police brutality,” and legislative bills that they think don’t benefit the community and initiatives like “defund the police…so they [police] will not hurt anyone else.” The lecture was part of a “Racial Justice Speaker Series,” which serves students in kindergarten through 8th grade. During another lecture in the same series, the district’s top equity administrator, Dr. Patricia Payne, spoke to students for over an hour, where she told them that their black peers are sometimes considered “less than” and encouraged them to “stop all this madness,” by becoming activists.
 

Woke California School Boards BAN Teachers from Giving D and F Grades:

High school students studying in some of California’s largest school districts will no longer be given a D or F grade for poor work, and will instead be allowed to take the tests or complete the work again. The new system has been introduced due to the pandemic, with supporters arguing that it reduces the stress levels for already-traumatized and unsettled students. Proponents say it will particularly help black, Latino and lower-income students, who have statistically been disproportionately affected by pandemic upheaval to school routines. Critics say that it dumbs down education, leaving students unequipped to cope with the harsh realities of the modern world.
 

Salvation Army Wants White Donors to Offer ‘Sincere Apology’ for Their Racism:

The Salvation Army has gone woke. The charity is asking its white donors to do more than just drop some coins into the kettle when they go shopping this holiday season. Leaders of the Army want whites to apologize for being racist. “The desire is that Salvationists achieve the following,” the Army says in an online “resource” titled “Let’s Talk About Racism,” listing several goals including to “lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed.” The resource claims Christianity is inherently racist and calls for white Christians to repent and offer “a sincere apology” to blacks for being “antagonistic…to black people or the culture, values and interests of the black community.”
 

Black Lives Matter Calls for Month-Long Boycott of ‘White Companies’ during the Holiday Season to Support ‘Black Xmas’ and End ‘White-Supremacist-Capitalism’:

The Black Live Matter movement has announced its seventh year of boycotting “white companies” during the holiday season to support “Black Xmas.” On Black Friday, the official Black Lives Matter Global Network shared an Instagram post calling to “support Black-led-Black-serving organizations.” “We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas. That means no spending with white companies” from Black Friday until New Years Day the official blackxmas.org site states. The group suggest three ways for its supporters to take part in Black Xmas: Build Black, Buy Black, and Bank Black. The group is encouraging its followers to “buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses” claiming “white-supremacist-capitalism uses policing to protect profits and steal Black life.”
 

Male Inmate Sexually Assaulted Female After Transfer to Washington Women’s Prison, Former Guard Says:

In the state of Washington, convicted male felons who identify as women have been transferred to the Washington Corrections Center for Women, formerly the only women-only prison in the state, and have in some cases sexually exploited the female inmates residing there. The policy, which was effectively rubber-stamped by Washington’s Democratic governor Jay Inslee, has not yet been codified into law as it has in California, but the practice is already wreaking havoc across the state’s prison system, former and current employees at the Washington Corrections Center for Women say.

EXAMINER – LENS:

Ireland Baldwin has such severe anxiety that she uses a blood pressure machine to make sure she isn’t having a heart attack. “This is not an ad for a blood pressure machine….I am posting this for whoever suffers with anxiety and anxiety disorders like I do,” Ireland, the 26-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, wrote in a post to Instagram.

GAS PRICES ARE RISING AT NEAR-RECORD LEVELS:

THERE’S NO EASY FIX

Here’s a sentence that could have been written basically anytime since 1999: Gas prices are really high. But this year it’s different. Like way too many things in 2021, it’s worse. Per The Wall Street Journal, gas prices are up 50% YoY, the largest percentage jump in 10+ years.

Nationally, the average price for a gallon of regular is up to $3.39 from $2.27 a year ago. The record is $4, set in summer 2008. Prices vary by state depending on local taxes, regulations, and energy infrastructure. Two stark examples:

  • California, where the average price per gallon is $4.70
  • Texas, where the average price per gallon is $2.98 When added to rising costs of groceries and other consumer staples, the jump is taking a toll on drivers (as well as on gas station owners) and putting pressure on producers to boost supply.

While tapping into reserves could help lower prices, American producers have been slow to ramp production due to pressure from investors to limit environmental harm, creating a lose-lose situation:

  • Boost production and risk criticism for environmental damage
  • Hold firm and catch flak for rising prices

On the bright side, analysts believe electric vehicles will be cheaper to make than gas vehicles as early as 2027, which could make the concept of gas prices (and endless complaints about them) a thing of the past.

SOUTH OF THE BORDER

Mexico Dream Vacation Hotspot is Spiraling Into a Deadly Cartel Battlefield:

Two foreign female tourists were caught in a crossfire between rival crime groups and shot to death in 2021 in the high-end resort town of Tulum, Mexico. Three other people were also wounded when the firefight broke out in the popular restaurant, La Malquerida, not far from the beach. Of the two women who were killed, one was from Germany and the other India. “They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and got caught in an exchange of gunfire between competing drug traffickers,” said a high-ranking Mexican police commander, who agreed to speak with The Daily Beast on the condition of anonymity. “It’s a sad mistake for the victims, but such cases are not rare or unusual anymore [in and around Tulum]. When a firefight breaks out no one is safe,” the commander said. A playground for celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Tulum is famous for its Mayan-era ruins and pristine beaches. But Tulum and the rest of the Riviera Maya are increasingly becoming inundated by cartel violence. An American firefighter was kidnapped and murdered from an all-inclusive resort in July. In June, another American was wounded in a shooting that killed two other people when gunmen opened fire from jet skis. A man was executed outside a law office in Cancun in August, prompting additional headlines about how violence “continues to take over” in the region. A report by Mexican news outlet La Reforma indicated that at least five cartels are now operating in the Riviera Maya and reports of violent crime in Tulum alone had gone up 783 percent since 2019.

Cartel Expert Recommends Tourists ‘Don’t Go’ to Mexico Right Now:

The hand-printed signs, in neat block letters, appeared in the Tulum marketplace the morning after two tourists were shot dead and three others wounded at a roadside eatery in the bohemian Mexican resort town. “Attention merchants of Tulum…this was a warning,” said the sign, which went on to threaten “managers and owners” of bars and restaurants on the “Mini Quinta” tourist zone. That’s where the foreigners, visiting the Malquerida Bar in 2021, had the bad luck of getting caught in cartel crossfire. The signs were photographed by a local citizens’ advocacy group, which posted them to social media. The message threatened death to merchants who refuse to fork over bribes to the drug-trafficking gangs and was signed by Los Pelones – “the bald ones.” The gang has been a longtime enforcer of the Gulf Cartel, whose battle against their archrivals – the ferocious Jalisco New Generation Cartel and Sinaloa Cartel – has recently resulted in shocking gangland-style violence along the Riviera Maya, a sun-drenched stretch of beaches on the Yucatan Peninsula that is Mexico’s biggest tourist hub. Things have become so dangerous that Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced the creation of a “tourist battalion” – 1,500 National Guard soldiers wielding automatic weapons to keep visitors safe. Beginning next month, the soldiers will be stationed in Cancun and surrounding areas, including Tulum, where Mexican law enforcement said there are 10 groups fighting for drug dominance in the picture-postcard resort town.
 

Cartel Monsters Hang Nine Bodies from Bridge in Mexico Turf War:

Cartel monsters have hung nine bodies from a bridge in a chilling warning to rival gangs amid a bloody Mexico turf war. A tenth victim was also found on a nearby road by horrified residents in the Zacatecas municipality of Cuauhtémoc. Officials warned the disturbing display was likely to be linked to a savage dispute between ruthless criminal gangs that operate in the area. The nine bodies were eventually removed from the overpass by police at around 10 a.m. local time, as locals went about their day. According to local media, the majority of the deceased were identified as residents of the small town Cuauhtémoc, which has a population of just 6,660. “They pay for the sins of others, it is not fair that they do this to us because they pay for the sinners,” one spooked local told TV Azteca Noticias. Another added: “It’s scary to go out at night. You have to go to sleep early and every night there is noise, motorcycles, screaming, things like that.”

SPIKE IN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES BLAMED ON FAST FOOD:

Disorders of the immune system are on the rise everywhere thanks to the global popularity of the so-called Western diet. Autoimmune diseases including type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis have spiked in recent decades, according to scientists James Lee and Carola Vineusa at London’s Francis Crick Institute. Lee and Vineusa have devoted their study to investigating the cause of such illness, which they believe can be blamed on the recent pervasiveness of fast foods, which “lack certain important ingredients.” “Numbers of autoimmune cases began to increase about 40 years ago in the West,” Lee told the Guardian’s Observer in a new interview. “However, we are now seeing some emerge in countries that never had such diseases before.”

Pope Francis Speaks Out Against ‘Cancel Culture’ and Anti-Vaxxers:

During his annual speech to Holy See ambassadors, Pope Francis denounced anti-vaccine misinformation and a “cancel culture” that he said prevents nations from being able to work together. Francis urged people to get vaccinated not just for themselves but for the greater good of society, calling healthcare “a moral obligation.” He added the debate over vaccines is a result of people letting themselves “be influenced by the ideology of the moment, often bolstered by baseless information or poorly documented facts.” He also decried the influence of rich nations that practice “ideological colonization” through their advocacy for contraception, same-sex marriage, and progressive ideas around gender in other nations. He related this “colonization” to “cancel culture,” which he believes “under the guise of defending diversity…ends up cancelling all sense of identity.”

Newsom Includes Health Coverage for All Illegal Immigrants in New Budget Proposal:

California Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled a budget proposal that would include expanding the state’s Medi-Cal health coverage to all low-income illegal immigrants in the state. The Golden State already began offering coverage to low-income illegal immigrants 26 and under in 2019 and added coverage for those 55 and older last year. Now, the Democratic governor has proposed covering the remainder beginning no sooner than January 1, 2024. Newsom did not say whether he would look to phase in the additional health coverage or how he planned to pay for it, the Associated Press reported. The move would make California the first state to provide universal health care access for all residents regardless of legal status and could cost some $2.4 billion per year, according to one legislative analysis. The expansion is included in Newsom’s $286 billion state budget proposal, which makes use of a projected $45.7 billion surplus.

Ocean Temps Were Hottest Ever on Record in 2021, Researchers Warn:

Ocean temperatures in 2021 were the hottest ever on record, researchers say, marking the sixth year in a row the record has been topped due to “human-induced climate change.” Last year’s temperatures shattered previous records, even despite a La Niña event that cooled down waters in the Pacific, a new study found. “The ocean heat content is relentlessly increasing, globally, and this is a primary indicator of human-induced climate change,” Kevin Trenberth, a climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado who co-authored the research, said in comments carried by The Guardian. Ocean temps have been steadily rising since 1955, a trend that experts say is fueling hurricanes, monster storms, and extreme weather. “Until we reach net-zero emissions, that heating will continue, and we’ll continue to break ocean heat content records, as we did this year,” said researcher Michael Mann of Penn State University.

Chicago Teacher Battling Cancer Speaks Out Against Union for Canceling Classes:

A Chicago teacher battling cancer condemned a teachers union strike against in-person learning and described it as an attempt to undermine authority and gain political power in an interview. Joseph Ocol said he made a commitment to his students and believes his role as a teacher is to be with them in the classroom, even as he fights cancer, the math teacher and chess coach at Ella Flagg Young Elementary School in Chicago told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The award-winning teacher has been lauded by many as a hero for his decision to continue teaching with cancer amid the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) strikes. But, Ocol said he believes the real heroes are the children. “They’re the ones suffering, and the parents who are trying to make ends meet,” he told the DCNF. “Parents suffer when their children are at home doing remote learning, when these parents are supposed to be working and earning a living for their families…But the real heroes are those kids,” he added. “They have suffered already so much. I’m not the hero, I’m just trying to do my job.”

The U.S. Needs More Workers:

The U.S. economy added 199,000 jobs last month, far below expectations of 422,000, marking the second straight month of lower-than-predicted job growth. But on the flip side, the unemployment rate declined more than expected, to 3.9% from 4.2% in November. Considering that unemployment hit 14.8% just 21 months ago, this recovery has been just as unprecedented as the times. The unemployment rate in December was lower than it was during every month in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. So how to square slower job growth with minuscule unemployment? In the current environment, virtually everyone who wants to get a job can get one. The problem is, a large share of the potential workforce isn’t applying to jobs. Many would-be job candidates have retired early, are concerned about contracting COVID at work, or may be caring for children or other family members at home.

YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP
by George Vandeman:

** As far as deaths from Omicron are concerned, one wag has said that Omicron has killed as many Americans as…Alec Baldwin’s gun. Or Ted Kennedy’s Oldsmobile. What he was referring to of course was the statistic that, as of December 24, about a week ago, the first confirmed death in the United States from the Omicron variant was reported. This was a gentleman who was reinfected, having previously had COVID-19, and who faced a higher risk for severe complications because of underlying health conditions.

** Washington State Democrats want to pull back penalties for drive-by shootings. So, make sure that any shooting of people you do in the state of Washington is not stationary. Maybe walking fast while you shoot people will count as a drive-by.

** The Arlington, Virginia, school board has proposed to implement more “equitable” grading practices. The proposal would remove late penalties for homework assignments; no longer allow students to earn extra credit, would allow for unlimited redoes of assignments, and would eliminate grading on homework assignments. The reason that students should not be graded on homework assignments is because the fear of making mistakes will have a negative impact on the learning process. I guess grading on in-school work does not create that fear. The reason for no extra credit, of course, is students with “fewer resources” are penalized when other students are able to complete extra credit assignments.

** For all of you who participated in the “smash-and-grab” protests, or if you are a looter who exploited all of the riots this past year, please be advised that according to the IRS, “if you steal property, you must report its fair market value in your income in the year you steal it, unless you return it to its rightful owner in the same year.” I am confident that all of you looters and smash-and-grabbers failed to take advantage of the safe harbor of returning the goods.

Examiner – Memory Lane:

Even if Peter Bogdanovich, who died recently at the age of 82, had never exposed a frame of film as a director, he’d be one of the history-making heroes of the world of movies. Bogdanovich, born in 1939, grew up in Manhattan as a precocious adolescent cinephile. In 1961, at the absurdly young age of 21, he organized the first-ever American retrospective of Orson Welles’ films at the Museum of Modern Art, and wrote a monograph about the director’s work. He did the same, at the same museum, the following year with the films of Howard Hawks, and, in 1963, with Alfred Hitchcock. These screenings, along with the symbolism of the entry into the museum’s ranks of three of the greatest filmmakers who were also Hollywood directors – and who were still working at the time – were something of a slow-motion coming-out party for the notion of Hollywood as a hotbed of directorial artistry.

Examiner – (Notable) Remarks:

** We need also to be frank about Biden. He’s too old to be president, and most people sense this. He was elected because he was someone clearly not as toxic to the electorate as most of the other more radical Dems. But in office, this has been shown to be a chimera. There is nothing to distinguish him in policy from the far left. His administration has embraced race and sex discrimination in every part of the federal government; he has endorsed the subordination of biological sex to gender identity in the law; his goal in immigration policy is to enable mass migration, not stop it. His administration routinely deploys the hideous acronyms of woke language – “equity,” “Latinx,” “BIPOC,” “LGBTQIA+” – and any return to plain English and common sense violates their commitment to “social justice.” Just watch Biden repeat the nonsense word “Latinx” in public. It’s pitiable. —- Andrew Sullivan

** When Martin Luther King Jr. was training Black civil rights activists in nonviolent resistance, he and his colleagues designed workshops to prepare them for clashes on newly integrated buses. On a simulated bus, people had to endure actors spitting on them, pouring milk on their heads, mushing gum in their hair, squirting ketchup and mustard at them, and flicking cigarette ashes at them. It was a dress rehearsal for staying cool in the heat of the moment. People who manage emotions professionally do this all the time. In nursing and medical schools, students practice delivering difficult news to patients. When tightrope walkers train on low ropes, they sometimes ask people to try and push them off. Along with testing their physical balance, they’re honing their emotional balance. —- Adam Grant

** Live your life like you’re the hero in your movie. —- Joe Rogan

** As William F. Buckley once put it: “I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.” —- Kevin D. Williamson

** A fascinating detail in Mark Leibovich’s New York Times profile of President Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, caught my eye. Sullivan was one of the principals in charge of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, during which, Leibovich notes, “Mr. Sullivan operated on an average of two hours of sleep a night for the duration of the three-week crisis in Afghanistan in August.” Leibovich doesn’t connect the dots between what he calls the “unruly and tragic” withdrawal and our National Security Advisor’s extreme sleep deprivation, but he doesn’t have to. We’re being told, rightly, by the White House to “follow the science” on the coronavirus. But it’s remarkable to see senior people in the same White House so obviously ignoring the science on sleep. Leadership isn’t about the quantity of decisions, but the quality. Leading in urgent, chaotic times doesn’t mean matching the chaos of the moment, but precisely the opposite. Judgment is what we need from leaders in a crisis, not the ability to power through exhaustion. At least the Army has caught up with the science. In its latest training field manual, the section on “sleep readiness” notes that sleep is necessary for “judgment, decision making, and situational awareness.” Pretty handy things in a crisis. Leibovich writes that Biden has lauded Sullivan, a Rhodes Scholar, as a “once-in-a-generation intellect.” But the problem with the Afghanistan debacle, and so many of the crises we’re facing, isn’t lack of intellect but lack of judgment and wisdom – among the first qualities to be depleted when we’re running on empty. —- Arianna Huffington

** It’s time to learn to live with COVID by using some common-sense practices: If you’re sick, stay home. If you’re around someone vulnerable, be careful. If you’ve been exposed, wear a real, quality, N95 mask. For the young who have natural or vaccinated immunity, it’s a mild virus that will circulate for the rest of their lives. —- Dr. Marty Makary is a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

LOOK BACK AT 2021 – LAW & ORDER

California Nordstrom Pillaged in One Minute by Gang of Thieves:

Around 80 people wearing ski masks and wielding crowbars rushed a Nordstrom department store in Walnut Creek, California, stealing merchandise and assaulting three clerks in a highly organized illegal spree that lasted about one minute on Saturday evening. Walnut Creek Police Department told NBC News that one cashier was pepper sprayed and two others were punched and kicked as the large group working together descended on the store. A witness said that around 25 cars pulled up in front of the store while the raid took place and then quickly sped away. Police arrested three people who were left without a ride, NBC reports. The store management is still trying to assess the extent of the loss.
 

Brutal, Brazen Crimes Shake L.A.:

Crews of burglars publicly smashing their way into Los Angeles’ most exclusive stores. Robbers following their victims, including a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and a BET host, to their residences. And the fatal shooting of 81-year-old Jacqueline Avant, an admired philanthropist and wife of music legend Clarence Avant, in her Beverly Hills home. After two years of rising violent crime in Los Angeles, these incidents have sparked a national conversation and led to local concern about both the crimes themselves and where the outrage over the violence will lead. “The fact that this has happened, her being shot and killed in her own home, after giving, sharing, and caring for 81 years has shaken the laws of the Universe,” declared Oprah Winfrey, expressing her grief over Avant’s killing to her 43 million Twitter followers. “The world is upside down.”
 

L.A. Cops Arrest 14 Suspects in Connection with 11 Smash-and-Grab Robberies – Release All to California’s ‘Zero Bail’ Policy:

Police in Los Angeles have announced 14 arrests in connection with 11 recent smash-and-grab robberies at stores where nearly $340,000 worth of merchandise was stolen, but all the suspects have been released. Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said that most of the accused robbers suspected of ransacking businesses between November 18 and 28 bailed out or met no-bail criteria, and one is a juvenile. At a joint news conference on Thursday announcing the arrests, both Moore and Mayor Eric Garcetti called for an end to a no-bail policy for some defendants aimed at reducing overcrowding at Los Angeles County jails during the coronavirus pandemic.
 

L.A. Sheriff Slams ‘Careless and Irresponsible’ Liberal DAs Undoing Police Work:

The Los Angeles County sheriff slammed California’s liberal prosecutors saying they are living in a “woke palace” and not facing the consequences of their decisions to undermine the work of law enforcement officers amid a surge in crime. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that liberal District Attorney George Gascon has declined to prosecute more than 12,000 cases after county deputies apprehended suspected criminals. “So we’re making the effort out there,” he added. “What we need now is, we need responsible district attorneys who are going to file their cases. And if they want to play the role of public defender, they should just quit their job and go over to the public defenders – and everything they say makes perfect sense for a public defender, not a district attorney.”

In a Facebook video Thornton ripped Lightfoot for not caring about Chicago police officers and failing to protect Chicago residents, specifically in the 16th district of the city otherwise known as the Jefferson Park district.

“Today we’re talking about the northwest side of Chicago, and this was brought to my attention by several of my officers who have texted me, ‘OK’ and said that they were scared,” Thornton said via a Facebook live. “They’re tired of this nonsense. They have no backing and they’re scared of being out there by themselves, working in the 16th District. We’re talking about the 16th District.” CWBChicago reported that, “The Jefferson Park district was staffed by 268 officers when Brown became superintendent in April 2020. There are 229 assigned to the district this month, according to the Chicago Office of Inspector General.” “And I’m going to tell you right now, 16th District is so shorthanded with officers that when you call 9-1-1, you’re not getting a quick response like many other parts of the city,” he continued. “Officers are not coming to you. And why? Because they can’t be assigned cars to go to you because we have very few officers within these neighborhoods. And it’s nonsense.”
 

Philadelphia’s Former Dem Mayor Blasts Liberal DA Who Claimed City Doesn’t Have a ‘Crisis of Crime’:

Michael Nutter, a former Philadelphia mayor who is black, recently accused the city’s white, liberal district attorney of dismissing the pain of black residents who suffer from violence after the DA claimed that the city does not have a crisis of lawlessness despite a record-breaking 550 homicides this year. Asked about the troubling rise in homicides in the city earlier this month, DA Larry Krasner said, “We don’t have a crisis of lawlessness. We don’t have a crisis of crime. We don’t have a crisis of violence.” In an interview with the Washington Post, Nutter blasted Krasner for disregarding the pain of black residents who are victims of violence while claiming to support them.

Bank of America Execs Warn Junior Staffers to ‘Dress Down’ as NYC Crime Surges:

At Bank of America, senior executives have quietly encouraged younger employees to “dress down” to attract less attention as they make their way to B of A’s tower at 1 Bryant Park. These execs have told their staffers that dressing up, or wearing anything with a Bank of America logo, could make them a target. One bank employee told On The Money he is on high alert after he spotted someone with a knife near the office during a recent trek to the Manhattan workplace. Of course, it’s not just Bank of America where worries over crime pervade. Murder rates have surged 42% over the past two years.

Explosive Growth of OnlyFans

OnlyFans is one wild business. The 5-year-old platform where (mostly) sex workers get paid for posting photos and videos, has grown to 150m+ registered users and 1.5m+ creators. For these creators, OnlyFans has been a boon: The platform, which takes a 20% cut of the subscription payments workers receive, now collectively pays out ~$5B to models per year. In August, OnlyFans said it would ban sexually explicit content. It quickly backtracked on the move after public outrage, but not before one creator used it as an opportunity to make a competing platform and sell $100k worth of jarred farts.
