Image of the Day: Record One-Year Income Rise in 2019

From the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income rose by 6.8% in 2019 - a record one-year increase - to a record high of $68,700.  Notably, under the supposed racist President Donald Trump, those 2019 income gains were largest for minority groups.  And since 2016, median income has risen 9.7%, which is fantastic news for Americans, even if it might be bad news for leftists in their disinformation campaign:

Gearing Up for the Protest Lawsuit Print
Wednesday, September 02 2020

Several individuals involved in the Seattle protests have come together to file a lawsuit seeking taxpayer money to pay for expensive anti-police protective gear.

According to news reports, the lawsuit claims that having to purchase gas masks, boots, gloves, helmets and other gear deprives poorer demonstrators of their First Amendment rights.  In response, criminal defense attorney Brian Claypool calls the suit "out of bounds."

"You’ve got to be kidding me that you’re asking a court that taxpayers should pay for protective gear," Claypool said. "You’re asking a court that is supposed to be interpreting the law, not making the law, to then prescribe what levels of force that police officers can use in very fluid and volatile situations."

"You can’t charge people and make people have to buy expensive stuff in order to protest," countered Andrew Stoltmann, an attorney and adjunct law professor at Northwestern University. 

Claypool warned that if the plaintiffs win the lawsuit, it might encourage protestors to become more violent "because now the taxpayers are arming them with all this gear."

The Seattle City Attorney’s office intends to defend the city. The plaintiffs are seeking a temporary restraining order that would prohibit the use of force by city police.

"President Trump, like President Obama in 2016, has the constitutional power to nominate a Supreme Court justice. He should exercise that power to put forward someone with a track record of respect for the law and for its limits on the judiciary. The Senate, as it did in 2016, will then have the power to decide whether to proceed. If the nominee meets threshold conditions of quality and judicial philosophy…[more]
