President-elect Joe Biden has a major domestic problem — killings and shootings in the nation's metropolitan cities is getting out of control.

Biden has spoken with a forked-tongue on most issues of national concern. Citizens are concerned about his mental ability to deal with complex problems. Biden has lapses of memory that cannot be ignored, no matter how the newsmedia may ignore them.

Will President Biden resolve the surging crime-rate now engulfing the land?

Eighteen of the top 20 American cities deluged with killings and shootings are controlled by Democrat mayors. Some of these cities are, Atlanta; Baltimore; Chicago; Cleveland; Detroit; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Milwaukee; New Orleans; Oakland; Philadelphia; St. Louis and the nation's capital, Washington, D.C.

All these murder- and shooting-infested cities, together with some of the other crime-infested cities such as, Louisville; Greensboro, N.C.; Minneapolis; New York City; Portland, Ore.; Toledo and Seattle are also Democrat-controlled. The list goes on.

According to The New York Times, the murder and shooting numbers are rising, and President Trump is wrong to criticize Democrat mayors.

American people ask, How so? Trump did not elect the mayors and governors.

What is the common denominator among and between these American cities?

Democratic laissez faire crime-control attitude or just a plain Democrat propaganda- driven excuse that crime does not exist. Democrats tout that serious crime, or any crime, is merely a figment of one's prejudiced imagination. "Defund the Police" is their motto.

"Let the misbegotten criminals out, because they are victims of police brutality and racial bigotry," is the threadbare Democrat crime-excusing mantra — that is wearing thin.

As of January 1, Chicago, a century-old Democrat strong-hold, concluded the most violent year in its crime-ridden history. There were a reported 4,115 shootings and 769 homicides from January 1 to December 27, 2020, and compared with 2,120 shootings and 495 homicides in 2019.

Chicago, over the past decades, has weekly murders and shootings with victims that are — young and old, rich and poor, Black — always the majority and white, and citizen and non-citizen. The Chicago citizens have now become immune to the violence. As one Chicagoan said, "Whether the 1920s or 2020, what's the difference? Now innocent old people and children get shoot. The shooters don't care. The mayor and her cronies surely don't care."

Chicago police have been shot at 71 times, with 10 officers struck by bullets. While, Democrat mayor Lori Lightfoot wants to cut police budget by $80 million.

New York City recorded 1,824 shooting and 462 homicides in 2020. Shootings were up 97% and homicides up 45% from 2019. New York officals bragged that other crime statistics were down about 1%. The New York Democrat-controlled state legislature passed a law stripping New York state judges of their ability to keep potential violent criminals in prison. Not a crime-control act.

A Democrat Cleveland, Ohio, councilman said the city's 2020 homicide rate was the worst in recent history, numbering 185 as of December 20. It appears the killings puzzle city officials. The officials blame gang violence, drug activity,and the conornavirus for the surge in crime. In 2021, Cleveland has experienced even a 2021 homicide. Cleveland has a higher homicide rate than Chicago, New York City or Los Angeles per capita.

Dallas, Texas's new police chief has said he takes crime reduction personally. Chief Eddie Garcia seeks to reduce the present Dallas murder rate of 227. Chief Garcia wants to take a collective approach — police and community. Meanwhile on December 8, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson (D) texted, "It (murder reduction) has fallen short for our underserved communities have been devastated by violent crime. In fact, about 86 percent of the murder victims in Dallas this year have been people of color."

The Dallas mayor is typical of the officials of Democrat-controlled cities and states, lots of rhetoric, but little actual action.

Detroit has over 300 homicides and 1,124 shootings as 2020 ends. The police chief blames in part the "pandemic-COVID" together with unmanaged disputes — domestic or drugs —  easy scapegoats.

Washington, D.C., had 198 homicides in 2020, the highest since 2004. A 15-month-old baby was killed in Southeast D.C. in December. This made little impact on violent crime in D.C. The Democrat city officials are unfazed by daily shootings.

Whether it is Los Angeles or Richmond, and anywhere in between, the reality is the same. Shootings and homicides are rising. Elected officials merely shrug their shoulders.

Average Americans are worried about the surging criminal carnage.

Meanwhile, radical Democrats, socialists, the newsmedia, academic eggheads, the Silicon-Valley nouveau-riche and show-business lightweights want to reduce the local police forces and reduce laws defining crimes and punishments.

They elected Biden. Now, they want their pound of flesh. They will get it.
