Democrat-run New Orleans has officially become the new murder capital of the United States, taking the place of the Democrat-run capital of St. Louis.
With a 141 percent increase in homicides since 2019 and a 78 percent increase since 2021, New Orleans has 52 homicides per 100,000 residents, according to Metropolitan Crime Commission date. There have been 205 homicides since the beginning of this year.
On the per-capita homicide scale, New Orleans is 7 points higher than St. Louis. Democrat-led Chicago, known for its terrifying crime, has a per capita homicide rate of 18 per 100,000, far less than New Orleans.
In an $80-million-dollar response, New Orleans is set to give police pay raises, provide full healthcare coverage, and a $30,000 increase in hiring incentives.
New Orleans tapped New York City Police Department Patrol Chief Fausto Pichardo to review policing in New Orleans. “Action must be taken now if there is ever a chance to save the city and bring the reputation of being a city where tourists can come to party and celebrate and not become victims,” Pichardo, wrote in a statement.
“Through this morning, we have had 14 homicides this month, compared to 23 all of July last year. We are starting to see the trend downward just a little bit. Let’s celebrate that success while we have it and build on that momentum,” New Orleans Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson told Just The News in July.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted in November 2021 that the Democrat support of the “defund the police movement” was a mistake. “It is not crazy for Black and brown communities to want what White people have already given themselves and that is funding your schools more than you fund criminalizing your own kids,” she said.
Our country’s continuing downfall under President Joe Biden and the Democrats was predicted by one very well known and popular man, forty-fifth President Donald Trump.

During a campaign rally in October 2020, Trump predicted America’s future under Biden to tens of thousands of supporters, saying, “Biden will deliver poverty, misery, depression. I will deliver jobs, jobs, jobs and the greatest economy in the history of our country.”
“There will be no school, no graduations, no weddings, no Thanksgiving, no Christmas, no Fourth of July. There will be no nothing, there will be no future. Other than that, it’s quite a good plan, I think,” Trump continued.
“Biden doesn’t have a clue. The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself,” Trump added.
Trump, of course, was right!
