Austin, TX, Vote Against Hiring of More Police

Austin, TX, used to be an amazing city.

There still are great areas, but that has been changing rapidly.

Now overrun with the liberal horde, the city is seeing more violent crime and homicides are up significantly, yet the voters in the city overwhelmingly voted not to add more police.

What Are They Thinking?

So far this year, there have been 75 homicides in Austin, TX.

That is a tally we see in a couple of months in Chicago, but this is unheard of for Austin.

In fact, it is the highest total the city has seen in decades.

Even so, 68 percent of residents shot down the ballot measure that would have added more police to patrols, averaging two officers per 1,000 residents on every shift.

The co-founder of Save Austin Now is not giving in just yet…

Austin police offered their thanks for those that did vote yes…

The mayor, however, took a victory lap in defeating the measure…

Ironically, a second measure on the ballot was defeated, which would have disbanded the force altogether.

Just as we saw in Minneapolis, 57 percent said they should not get rid of the force, yet they want to leave them shorthanded.

Austin is not quite to the levels of Philadelphia and Chicago just yet, but liberals and Democrats are doing their best to get it there.

With this failure in city leadership, give them a few years, and Austin will soon become the embarrassment of the state of Texas.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
