Albuquerque Community Terrified After 4 Muslim Men Were Murdered

The Muslim community in Albuquerque is on edge after the killings of four Muslim men. …


  1. The Democrats have been running Detroit into the ground for decades. But the idoits will just keep voting them back into office. So they get what they deserve.

  2. When people want everything free from the government, the government needs to find a way to pay for it and they turn to the taxpayers. “ robbing Peter to pay Paul” happens in every city .

  3. those houses are worth so little, in case you were sleeping, because it is a HIGH CRIME city. you do not want to come out at night in Detroit. so who do you think wants to buy those homes? the demand is non existent, except the people that rightfully lived there and did not have their neighborhoods look like this. give everyone the opportunity of home ownership especially in areas where others would not live, they grew up there, they know what to do to restore it.

  4. so they would rather let these homes crumble and have people homeless instead of working with them???? 🤔🙄

  5. flint Michigan still don't have clean drinking water

  6. detroit, i know many are proud. my family lived there until the 1950's. sorry detroit is not any better and looks like a trashy war zone. my son lives off 7 mile in detroit and cannot leave his house because of break in robbery. has food stolen off the grill, cars stolen. belle isle had to be taken over by a federal agency as detroit could not keep it up. they ran the tax base off, so you are left with nothing.

  7. Ours get over assessed and they raise taxes same year

  8. So b lack people claim racism when their home values are undervalued. When their home value is overvalued, they claim racism. Sounds like a brainless b lack people problem.

  9. That house can not be worth $5000. How about zero…and even that not many people still wanted it and live there

  10. You don't get to own property. It's the states property, you just rent it.

  11. News Flash – FBI seizes John Eastman for criminal activity

    Ron Johnson lies about his seditious conspiracy efforts.

    Mo Brooks, Matt Gates,Scott Perry,Louis Gohmert, Andy Biggs,Paul Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene, John Eastman admits guilt….all by asking for pardons!

    Everyone knows, if you ask for or accept a pardon you are admitting guilt! A pardon is for a crime committed.

    Trump willfully mounted the insurrection and violate conspiracy statute 18 U.S.C. § 371 of the criminal code. Trump also stole secret documents from the White House.

    Attorney General Merrick Garland plans to arrest Trump and his leadership team!

    Steve Bannon Arrested, Guilty and Indicted! All appeals denied by courts and his trial starts in July 2022.

    Jail Time For Trump Is Coming: he stole white house documents and gifts to America from foreign officials. oh and he is the insurrection leader
    Loudermilk is a Trumpist Insurgent. He lead Trumpists into the Capital and then denied it.

    Now you know what the future with Trumpism will continue to be like !! More mass shooting will happen if DOJ Garland doesnt arrest all top Trumpists.

    No person is above the law! Listen to former DOJ Eric Holder, you can and need to prosecute Trump.

    since January 6 2021 not one single Republican lawmaker has been held accountable for their insurrection actions. they will win re-election if not arrested and they will cause more chaos and mass shootings. Put an end to the evil Trumpist Republicans and support the good Republicans and good democrats.

    MAGA Trumpists are ramping up their war machine to lie about their insurrection! Dont believe the lies!

    We need to support a federal law mandating prison time for each lie told by an elected official.

    More Very Disturbing Trends –

    1 Law enforcement has NO OBLIGATION TO HELP ANYONE…that is what their Union will fight for during investigations and trials.

    2 Law enforcement cant be prosecuted for Not doing their jobs

    3 Law enforcement can legally lie unless they are under oath at that moment

    4 The District Attorney will side with the cops almost always

    5 Law enforcement has qualified immunity, which makes it very difficult to prosecute them

    Texas Shooting Coverup …..over 18 armed evil trumpist c o p s had over 11,000 live rounds of ammo and they waited. and waited…..while people were being killed. it took the border patrol to take out the shooter…. how sad is that?

    nothing will happen to these evil trumpist people unless the locals keep up the pressure and the cops and politicians involved leave!
    Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.

  12. joe bidens economy makes you work 6 days a week @ 12hrs a day to make same money you make in 2019 @ 40 hrs a week

  13. Steven Crowder, Ben Shapiro and every other moron who consistently says: "there is no such thing as systemic racism, (especially in Amerikkka)". Here is just one more blaring example to this oh so painful Fact!

    Or go ahead and give us your looney toons spin on this where these daft people like them and those who follow in their absurd like minded beliefs where they'll create some rando or bizarre method that would spin it into this 'being caused by the homeowners lack of etc. etc.

  21. So what happens to the homes? They just sit abandoned? Continue to bring down the property value in those neighborhoods (and they continue to be over assessed?) And a place for crackheads to occupy? And a haven for criminals to commit crimes like murders, rap3s, trap house??? What about the kids that attend schools in those very same neighborhoods? Who benefits from overassessing property taxes in these neighborhoods? Deplorable. The devil always comes back to collect.

  22. Michigan that they did not help steal the election either ha we are not stupid nice try Lonnie ray
