Two years after the sham election of 2020, most Americans by now will tell you that they feel less safe now than they did then. This is true, especially in places like New York City, where a routine commute to and from work is now like a game of Russian Roulette.



According to a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey released on Thursday, most Americans — both Republican and Democrat — felt safer when Donald Trump was the President.

“Do you feel as safe in America today as you did 2 years ago?” The survey asked.

Approximately 68% said they do not feel as safe in the United States today as they did two years ago when Trump was Commander in Chief. Around 27 percent said they feel as safe, and the remaining five percent said they are unsure.

Republicans (86.8%) and independents (64.1%) said they do not feel safe in America under Biden. Democrats remain relatively split — 47.8 percent said they feel just as safe today as they did two years ago, but 44.9 percent of Democrats said they do not feel as safe.

The survey was conducted between September 17-20, 2022, and included 1,079 respondents and has a +/- 2.9 percent margin of error. This data comes in just as American communities across the country are experiencing some of the most significant increases in crime in recent American History.

 

Conservative lawmakers Senator Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Bill Hagerty (TN) penned a letter to President Joe Biden last week, imploring the White House to fight this country’s crime wave, which demanded a commitment to law enforcement, among other things.

“Rampant crime is not inevitable — tough law enforcement can stop it,” Blackburn and Hagerty wrote. “But that requires a commitment to law enforcement.”

Blackburn and Hagerty noted particular recent cases in Memphis, Tennessee, where a 34-year-old kindergarten teacher, Eliza Fletcher, who was also a mother of two young boys, was kidnapped and murdered allegedly by a convicted felon named Cleotha Abston. Abston, who Alicia Franklin accused in 2021 of rape, was never investigated by Memphis police. Franklin has now filed a lawsuit against the city of Memphis, stating that if the police had done their job, Abston would have been behind bars, and Eliza Fletcher would still be alive.

In another case last week, 19-year-old Ezekiel Kelly was arrested in Memphis after allegedly carrying out seven shootings that left four Americans dead. It is also believed that Kelly live-streamed the shootings on social media. State lawmakers have since passed a Truth in Sentencing bill requiring violent criminals convicted of serious offenses to serve 100% of their sentences. They will negate early release credits and any opportunities for parole. Many believe this is a common-sense measure that would end the violent crime wave gripping America.

As a result of the rise of assaults and homicide across America, these two senators are asking Biden to execute federal grant programs to fund law enforcement units fighting violent crime. The lawmakers also urge Biden to “revive Operation Legend.” Originally initiated by the Trump Administration in 2020, it was a program named for LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while asleep in his home in Kansas City, Missouri, on June 29, 2020. over 6,000 arrests were made under Operation Legend, which included approximately 467 arrests for homicide, more than 2,600 seized illegal firearms, and over 17 seized kilos of fentanyl.

And these two lawmakers are not ignoring the 800-pound elephant in everyone’s room — the border crisis. They also urged Biden to close the border to prevent further drug and human trafficking.
