Early on August 9, 2020, a 17-year-old was killed, while an off-duty police officer received life-threatening injuries in the aftermath of at least 20 people getting shot when a fight kicked off at a cookout with hundreds of people in Southeast Washington.

According to D.C. police, at least three shooters opened fire from different locations around 12:30 a.m. at Dubois Place in the Greenway neighborhood. The incident caused party attendees to flee the scene and look for cover.

The dead teenager was identified as Christopher Brown.

The unidentified off-duty police officer, who was attending the party, received critical injuries and was “fighting for her life,” D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham reported. Law enforcement officials said that the officer was shot in the neck. According to an initial report, 21 people were reportedly shot but it was then determined that one of the victims suffering injuries did not receive a bullet wound.

This party and the subsequent shooting raised tough question about large events that violate Mayor Muriel E. Bowser’s order that prohibits gatherings of groups larger than 50 people.

Over 115 people have been killed in D.C. in 2020, which marks a 17 percent increase during the same timeframe in 2019.

D.C. is one of the most anti-gun jurisdictions and yet gun-related violence continues to occur. In addition, lax policing has contributed to the city’s perennial crime problems.

Local policymakers in urban centers across the nation will have to realize that their policies are making their jurisdictions much less desirable to live in. Unfortunately, progressivism clouds politicians’ better judgment on almost every occasion.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
