Image of the Day: Biden, Pelosi and Schumer Faceplanted On Jobs in 2021

On the heels of Friday's unsettling jobs report from the Labor Department, we can now judge the performance and promises of Joe Biden and the Pelosi/Schumer Congress against actual reality.  They promised 10.3 million jobs would be created in 2021 if their massive spending and regulation blowout passed, versus 6.3 million jobs if their agenda wasn't passed.  So how did it turn out?  Their agenda was passed, but only 6.1 million jobs were created as the U.S. economy slowed and struggled to recover from the Covid dip, as AEI's Matt Weidinger highlights.  They apparently made things worse, not better, illustrating the sardonic adage, "Don't just do something - stand there."

Nearly two years after a police stop and citation that made national news, a grandmother is suing a Dallas-area police officer and city for allegedly being "antagonized and assaulted."

According to news reports, on August 19, 2012, then 77-year-old grandmother Lynn Bedford was stopped for going 66 mpg in a 50-mph zone.  Citing a bladder infection and the need to use a restroom, Bedford refused to get out of the car or hand over her driver's license, prompting Sgt. Gene Geheb to open the door and remove Bedford from the car. Bedford ultimately received two citations: one for speeding and another for failing to provide ID.

Originally, Bedford said she did not have plans to sue.  Now, two years later, she has changed her mind and is seeking a jury trial and damages against the City of Keene and Sgt. Geheb for, among other things, unreasonable search and seizure and for having in place policies that show “deliberate indifference to the constitutional rights of citizens.” In the federal lawsuit filed in Dallas, Bedford claims she “suffered a painfully-bruised tailbone, bruising on her arm, and a sore shoulder.”
 
In September 2012, Keene Chief Rocky Alberti defended his officer’s actions: “The incident has been reviewed thoroughly by the Keene Police Department and the City of Keene administration,” Alberti said. “All parties have concluded that Sgt. Geheb did not violate any state laws or department policies, and in fact was following department policy in regards to violators not providing information.”
