Right to Repair: A Consumer Movement That Left and Right Should Agree On

NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE T here’s an old saying that a stopped clock is right twice a day. We shouldn’t be shocked, then, that President Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders are correct in part of their economic analysis of consumer rights. That’s an area where conservatives could benefit people in their daily lives as well as win over independent voters. Last July, Biden signed an executive order designed to promote competition. The order is highly flawed in its failure to see how the use of big government to curb monopolies often makes big business bigger. It is way too reliant on discredited notions of antitrust to … To Read the Full Story

An Insider Mocks the Endless Progressive Guilt Trip

Finn Wolfhard and Julianne Moore in When You Finish Saving the World (Screengrab via YouTube) Jesse Eisenberg’s directorial debut When You Finish Saving the World skewers the culture of liberal self-scourging. NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLE A n intensely determined social worker played by Julianne Moore drives to work listening to equally intense classical music suggesting her utter, lifelong focus on a dramatic struggle for social justice. Then the camera pulls back to reveal the car she’s in: a pathetic, absurd, lawnmower-sized demi-car. That’s the kind of perfect juxtaposition — funny, cutting, woefully accurate — that characterizes every smartly-designed scene in When You Finish Saving the World, the sly directorial debut of actor-writer Jesse Eisenberg. Eisenberg (who also wrote the movie, which began as a podcast) politely but devastatingly lampoons the sorts of people he grew up with … To Read the Full Story

California DA Claims ‘Rogue Prosecutors’ Are Emboldening Criminals

A law enforcement officer takes position as a building burns during nationwide unrest following the death in Minneapolis police custody of George Floyd, in Los Angeles, California, May 30, 2020. (Patrick T. Fallon/Reuters) Sacramento County district attorney Anne Marie Schubert claimed that “rogue prosecutors” in California have been incentivizing offenders to perpetrate crimes with their relaxed penalty policies. “This is just yet another example of the chaos that we’re seeing here in California and the violence,” Sacramento County DA Anne Marie Schubert told Fox & Friends on Friday. “And it’s not just that, it’s the fact that we’ve got a tsunami of poor public policies, and you’ve got rogue prosecutors that are not holding people accountable to the fullest extent of the law that we can.” Progressive prosecutors in major cities have come under fire recently for passing policies that seem likely to embolden criminals even as violence and crime rates mount. Schubert specifically targeted Los Angeles prosecutor George Gascon and San Francisco prosecutor Chesa Boudin. She said their tough-on-crime posturing is a façade, backed mostly by rhetoric rather than action. “When they try to talk tough, it’s really just a show because when you actually follow them through with those cases, what we’re seeing is that they’re really not being tough on crime, they’re not holding people accountable,” she added. #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258adee .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta label { font-size: 1.2rem; line-height: 1.5rem; color: #000000; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258adee .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta p { font-size: 1.05rem; line-height: 1.45rem; color: #000000; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258adee { background-color: #ffffff; border-width: 1px; border-color: #cccccc; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258adee .inline-newsletter-subscribe__email-submit { border-color: #e92131; background-color: #e92131; color: #ffffff; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258afdf .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta label { font-size: 1.5rem; line-height: 1.7rem; color: #000000; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258afdf .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta p { font-size: 1.05rem; line-height: 1.45rem; color: #000000; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258afdf { background-color: #ffffff; border-width: 1px; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258afdf .inline-newsletter-subscribe__email-submit { border-color: #eba605; background-color: #eba605; color: #ffffff; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b09a .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta label { font-size: 1.3rem; line-height: 1.5rem; color: #dd9933; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b09a .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta p { font-size: 1.05rem; line-height: 1.5rem; color: #2d2d2d; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b09a { background-color: #ffffff; border-width: 1px; border-color: #999999; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b09a .inline-newsletter-subscribe__email-submit { border-color: #dd9933; background-color: #dd9933; color: #ffffff; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b149 .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta label { font-size: 1.5rem; line-height: 1.7rem; color: #0f733c; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b149 .inline-newsletter-subscribe__cta p { font-size: 1.05rem; line-height: 1.45rem; color: #2d2d2d; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b149 { background-color: #ffffff; border-width: 1px; border-color: #cccccc; } #inline-newsletter-nloptin-61ed97258b149 .inline-newsletter-subscribe__email-submit { border-color: #0f733c; background-color: #0f733c; color: #ffffff; } She slammed Gascon for enacting rules that let offenders back onto the streets within a certain time window regardless of whether they committed felonies or more minor crimes. “So for instance, in Los Angeles, you’ve got a district attorney who acts like he wants to hold people accountable, yet he won’t file things like special circumstances. He thinks people should get out of prison after 15 years, no matter what they’ve done. You’ve got murderers in prison that are toasting Gascon, celebrating that they’re going to get out of prison early. So these are the types of things that these policies, these prosecutors are doing. We are emboldening criminals to really commit even more crime,” Schubert said. She said California citizens are growing weary of the rampant crime, between the organized shoplifting heists, follow-home robberies, stabbing incidents, and a general dramatic spike in homicides. They need to demand leadership that will enforce rule of law and foster safe communities, she said. On the other coast in New York City, Manhattan’s new progressive district attorney Alvin Bragg received a lot of heat recently for arguing in a memo to his office that the “decriminalization/non prosecution” of crimes, such as resisting arrest and interfering with an arrest and prostitution, “will make us safer.” He later backtracked on his statement, apologizing for any confusion it may have caused and clarifying that all robberies involving a gun will be prosecuted as a felony in the city.
