Wednesday 2 November 2022 06:13 PM MEGHAN MCCAIN: Dems are guilty of The Great American Cover-up. And they're ... trends now
Democrats took the American people for suckers.
And the people are angry.
It has been a bizarre Alice in Wonderland-experience watching liberals spin ridiculous self-serving narratives about the truly sorry state of America.
Their claims are not only patently false, but delusional. And you would have to be delusional yourself to believe the falsehoods spewed from their mouths.
Call it the Great American Cover-up.
They include but are not limited to: There is no rise in crime.
'These are master manipulators,' Democratic Kathy Hochul said of Republicans. 'They have this conspiracy going all across America trying to convince people that in Democratic states that they're not as safe.'
In New York City, violence in the subways is rampant – up 41% in 2022, according to the NYPD.
Nationally, the annual murder rate is 30 percent higher than it was in 2019, according to a New York Times analysis.
The non-partisan Council on Criminal Justice says aggravated assaults, robberies, burglaries, larcenies, and motor vehicles thefts all increased in the first half of 2022, compared to the first half of 2021.

He has set, quite possibility, the worst example of a politician treating voters like they're stupid.
Inflation is at its worst in nearly 40 years. Real incomes – commonly known as wages – are down. (Again, thanks inflation). And the price of gas is very clearly up.
When Biden was inaugurated the average cost of a gallon was $2.39. Today it's around $3.80.
Who does he think he's fooling?
And now, for probably my favorite fib: America's borders are secure.
We're heard it from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas, and border czar Vice President Kamala Harris. Their message to Americans is: Don't believe your lying eyes.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has made nearly 2.4 million arrests on the southern border in 2022 – that's the highest number every recorded by far.
And that's just counting the individuals that were apprehended.
CBP has reported at least another 900,000 'gotaways,' or individuals who likely slipped through the gaping cracks in the 'secure' border.
Now, the unmitigated flow of illegal immigrants into America is not just a southern border state problem. New York City has erected tent cities to house migrants bused there by Republican governors in Florida and Texas, but also by Democratic leaders of El Paso.
On Tuesday, at least two Border
