De Blasio, AOC, and their fellow Democrats are so corrupt and power-hungry, that they are sacrificing the safety of New Yorkers in order to cause chaos and unrest by defunding and demeaning the NYPD and other police departments across the country, moves which they hope will provide them leverage in order to win the Presidency and to usher in Democratic Socialism.
Guess what? The police are fighting back.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) union faced blowback from local Democrats after it endorsed President Trump’s reelection amid budget cuts and tensions between police and city lawmakers.
On Friday night, Trump spoke to members of the New York City Police Benevolent Association (PBA), an organization that represents 24,000 officers, at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. Trump was formally endorsed by the group.
PBA President Pat Lynch said it was the first time he could recall the group ever endorsing a president.
“I have 36 years on this job, 21 as the president of this fine organization. I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for Office of the President of the United States, until now. That’s how important this is,” Lynch said.
“Many times people say that a union like ours, law enforcement groups, give endorsements. Not in the New York City PBA, sir,” Lynch continued. “In the New York City PBA, Mr. President, you earn the endorsement and you’ve earned this endorsement. I’m proud to give it.”
“I’ve admired you my whole life, watched you do a job like nobody else, nobody else done it. Best of the best and I’m grateful happy you’re here,” the president said to the group of officers in attendance.
He mentioned his brother, Robert, who he visited in a New York City hospital Friday. “He’s having a hard time, but he respected you like I respect you.”
He again repeated his law-and-order message, telling the crowd “No one will be safe in Biden’s America.”
“This guy has been taking your dignity away and your respect,” Trump said of former Vice President Joe Biden. “And I’m telling you on Nov. 3 you’re going to be getting it back.”
New York Democrats said the police union’s endorsement of such a highly unpopular politician within the city was exacerbating tensions between them and the community.
“NYPD union endorsed Trump. I’m sure this is part of their neighborhood outreach plan,” tweeted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose district spans the Bronx and Queens.
“Also, does anyone else see a potential problem with police unions – enforcement arms of the state with lethal weapons – promoting “preferred” candidates for office or is that just me?” she added.
“I’m speechless. NYC is a beautifully diverse, working class, democratic city. The NYPD is clearly showing they are not interested in working with the people of our city,” tweeted Jamaal Bowman, a progressive newcomer who overthrew longtime Rep. Elliot Engel in a June primary.
“This explains their continued aggression against innocent people. It’s time for dramatic change,” he said.
New York City cops have faced a campaign against them in the wake of police brutality protests following the death of George Floyd.
As New York politicians cut $1 billion from the police budget among other police reforms, crime has spiked throughout the city. In July 2020, there were 244 shootings in New York, a 177 percent increase from the 88 which occurred last July.
Crimes such as murder, burglary and grand larceny auto also rose, but crimes such as rape, robbery and assault fell.
Meanwhile, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city council recently barred officers from using chokeholds and other forms of restraint to detain suspects.
At the same time, state lawmakers passed a law to publicly disclose the disciplinary records of police officers accused of misconduct.
On July 31, Lynch met with the president at the White House to discuss the crime problem.
“In our city, we’re going through a difficult time. We have a progressive mayor that’s anti-police; the city council that’s anti-police; and the statehouse is anti-police. So they’re changing the law where it’s becoming impossible to do our job,” Lynch told the president, as reported by the New York Post.
“And remember what our job is: to keep folks safe. You do that by helping the good people, going after the bad people. They’re stopping us from doing that.”
Now, let me get this straight.
The local Democrat politicians, including Commie Mayor Bill de Blasio treat the NYPD like THEY are the thugs, defunding and treating them like garbage, and then the Dems have the nerve to act surprised when they endorse President Trump?
Their arrogance knows no bounds.
the Far Left Democratsz, his handlers have made a huge mistake by not “Backing the Blue”.
The overwhelming majority of American citizens support the police and sheriff’s departments within their municipalities and counties.
These same Americans, living between the coasts, are the ones Hillary Clinton referred to as “Deplorables”.
And, these are the Americans who elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
Average Americans are very aware as to what the Democrats are doing by championing the “Defund the Police” movement….they are pandering to special interest groups while clearing another obstacle in their path to radically changing America into a Marxist nation.
There is nothing at all altruistic in the Democrats attempting to defund the police.
If you will notice, Democrat politicians, both local and national, either live in a gated community or hire private security for themselves.
They are not shy about protecting themselves.
They don’t care about average Americans, though.
Back in July, the National Association of Police Organizations endorsed President Trump for reelection
Their bowing down to the Radical Left has now cost Joe Biden and the Democrat Party the support of those who keep us safe.
The Great American Broadcaster, the late Paul Harvey, was the son of a policeman who died in the line of duty. He wrote the following tribute for one of his daily updates…
“What is a policeman?
“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.
“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.
“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.
“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.
“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.
“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”
The Democrats are a bunch of ungrateful arrogant fools.
Back the Blue.
Until He Comes,
