Biden and Harris Speak After Chauvin Verdict, Attack America by Saying We Have a History of “Systemic Racism”…What About Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill?

 

FoxNews.com reports that

The guilty verdict in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin “can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America,” President Biden and Vice President Harris said Tuesday.

That march, they added, has too rarely delivered “basic accountability” for Black Americans.

America has a “long history of systemic racism,” they said, calling it a “stain on the nation’s soul.”

A panel of jurors found Chauvin guilty on Tuesday on all three charges in connection with the May 2020 death of George Floyd — the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying “I can’t breathe” as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck.

Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests last spring and summer over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism.

Chauvin, 45, was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. After the jury announced the verdict, Chauvin’s bail was immediately revoked and he was led away with hands cuffed behind his back.

Biden and Harris, following the verdict, took the podium at the White House.

Harris, speaking first, thanking the jury, and the Floyd family, saying the verdict brought “a sigh of relief” but “cannot take away the pain.”

“A measure of justice is not the same as equal justice,” Harris said. “This verdict brings us a step closer and the fact is we still have work to do. We still must reform the system.”

Harris added: “America has a long history of systemic racism.”

Biden then took the podium, saying Floyd’s murder was one “in the full light of day.”

“It ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism,” Biden said. “Systemic racism — a stain on our nation’s soul.”

“The knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans — profound fear and trauma, the pain, exhaustion that Black and Brown Americans experience every single day,” Biden said. “The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protest we hadn’t seen since the Civil Rights [era] in the ’60s.”

Biden said that the protests “unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say, ‘Enough, enough, enough of these senseless killings.'”

“This can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America,” he said.

Biden touted officers for “testifying against a fellow officer,” saying they “should be commended,” and the jury who “carried out their civic duty in the midst of an extraordinary moment, under extraordinary pressure.”

“For so many, it feels like it took all of that for the judicial system to deliver just, just basic accountability,” Biden said, adding that “racial disparities” exist in “policing and in our criminal justice system more broadly.”

So, Joe Biden is calling America a Racist Country.

Irony is embarrassed.

Back in February of 2007, Delaware Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.

Liberals’ arrogance often lead them to reveal their own intolerance.

Sleepy Joe became chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and as Delaware Senator supported a crime bill in 1994, saying at the time that his aim was to control violent crime.

Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of the 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…

…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.

Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.

The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)

The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”

Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.

Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.

Uh huh.

Liberal Democrats have taken the votes of Black Americans for granted for a long time now.

The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.

They not only expect it, they rely on it.

However, the problem the Biden and his handlers face is the fact that Trump made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.

Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.

The problem that the “unintended consequences” of the 1994 Crime Bill and Biden’s racist comment to Charlemagne last year poses for the Democrats is the fact that it shows the hypocrisy. is attempting to blame the amount of arrests made of black Americans on “Systematic Racism”.

The Democrats are the ones who tore apart the Black Family United with the advent of their “Great Society” under President Lyndon Baines Johnson and the subsequent generations who either could not or did not wish to get off of the Government Dole. 

Unfortunately for Sleepy Joe and the Democrat Elite, Americans are very aware that they are not only supporting the racial unrest in our cities, their Vice-President Kamala Harris has bailed out rioters.

I thought Sleepy Joe was supposed to “unite” us..

Sheesh.

With the existence of “Uniters” like President “Sleepy Joe” Biden and his Vice-President, “Heels Up” Harris, America’s “racial divide” has become another Grand Canyon..

MSM Minions Covering Floyd Trial Criticize Chavin’s Lawyer for Going for Reasonable Doubt in Closing Argument…Their Ignorance is Embarrassing

See the source image

FoxNews.com reports that

“PBS NewsHour” correspondent Yamiche Alcindor put forward novel legal analysis on Monday during closing arguments in the Derek Chauvin trial.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson focused heavily in his closing argument on George Floyd’s health and drug use, claiming they were more responsible for Floyd’s death than Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck, as seen in now-infamous footage.

Alcindor, however, appeared to fact-check Nelson by relying on the prosecution’s case, which exclusively focused on Chauvin’s use of force.

“Chauvin’s lawyer said it flies in the face of common sense to say Floyd’s death was not caused at least in part by his underlying conditions or drug use,” Alcindor tweeted. “This argument is in direct contradiction to the prosecution’s case which says believe your eyes, Chauvin’s knee killed Floyd.”

Critics mocked the taxpayer-funded reporter for her less-than-trenchant analysis.

“Yeah wow so weird that the defense is contradicting the prosecution,” conservative commentator Matt Walsh reacted.

“Yes, typically the defense and the prosecution do present contradictory arguments,” Daily Caller reporter Dylan Housman told Alcindor.

“Does not seem odd or surprising that the defense case would be in ‘direct contradiction’ to the prosecution case. That’s the way it works,” Washington Examiner senior political correspondent Byron York chimed in.

“Is she really confused or outraged that the defense and prosecution might have differing views on a case? How does someone so clueless get a job anywhere?” radio host Derek Hunter asked.

“I have news about the kinds of arguments made every single day by criminal defense lawyers,” National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin said.

Alcindor wasn’t the only journalist to share questionable analysis of the Chauvin trial. CNN senior legal analyst Laura Coates tweeted: “Defense begins the closing by defining reasonable doubt, not with why #DerekChauvin is innocent. Think about that,” an apparent dismissal of the bedrock principles of the American justice system.

MSNBC legal analysts Glenn Kirschner and Barb McQuade similarly focused on Nelson’s “reasonable doubt” arguments.

“When you have NO compelling facts/evidence supporting your defense, you start with long-winded discussions of legal principles like presumption of innocence & proof beyond reasonable doubt. That’s how defense attorney Nelson started his closing argument. That is a tell…” wrote Kirschner, a former Army prosecutor.

“I have found that the defense spends more time on presumption of evidence and reasonable doubt when he does not want to focus on the facts of his own case,” tweeted McQuade, a former U.S. Attorney appointed by Barack Obama.

Why are the Main Stream Media Minions of the Far Left Democrats so stupid?

Because, boys and girls, they are “useful idiots”.

Their job is no longer the objective reporting of facts.

Their job, which they perform with glee, is the brainwashing of the gullible with propaganda-driven falsehoods, so that those who actually pay attention to then, believe the alternative reality they are baring witness to.

As anyone who has any education at all…or has watched any legal dramas on television knows, the Defense Lawyer does not have to prove their client to be innocent.

They just have to prove to the jury that there is a reasonable doubt as to whether he should be found guilty to the charges placed against him by the Prosecution.

In this case, Attorney Eric Nelson laid out a masterful closing argument in his defense of Derek Chauvin.

By breaking down the video of that fateful incident which ended with the death of convicted criminal George Floyd, he was able to point out that Officer Chauvin was following the Minnesota Police Department Training Manual.

He was also able to show that Floyd violently resisted being placed in a squad car, exhibiting behavior that certainly showed him in a drug-induced state.

If this was a level playing field, I would venture to say that Former Officer Chauvin would either be found Not Guilty or receive a minimal sentence.

However, this is not an even playing field, as the dimwitted performer and her fellow Main Stream Media Minions have been demonstrating in their coverage of this case for the last year.

Also, Rep. “Mad” Maxine Waters’ threatening of the jury was interference of the highest order.

I wish Judge Cahill could summon her before the court to, excuse the expression, “read her the riot act” on television before the entire country.

PBS Reporter Yamiche Alcindor and the rest of her colleagues would never tell you that.

They wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up to them and French Kissed them.

MTG Announces Effort to Expel Maxine Waters From Congress for Telling Minnesota Protesters to “Get More Confrontational” if Chauvin Found Not Guilty

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-G announced an effort Sunday to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress after she told protesters in Minnesota to “get more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin isn’t convicted of murdering George Floyd.

In a statement released by her office, Taylor Greene accused the California Congresswoman of inciting “Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists to fire gunshots at National Guardsmen in Minnesota” after she spoke in Brooklyn Center, which has become a flashpoint for protests following the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.

“I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence,” a statement from Taylor Greene’s office reads.

Waters told reporters on Saturday that if former police officer Chauvin isn’t found guilty of murdering Floyd, “We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

Waters said she was “hopeful” Chauvin would be convicted of murder, but if he isn’t, “we cannot go away.”

Taylor Greene called Waters “a danger to our society,” and accused her of “traveling across state lines to incite riots.”

“Her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning,” she writes.

“As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power,” she continued, before adding, “Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!”

Taylor Greene was not the only Republican to take issue with Waters’ remarks.

“The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities. As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., wrote on Twitter.

“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg told Fox News.

“Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this?” Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., tweeted.

Waters said she plans to stay in Minnesota until Monday when closing arguments are expected in the Chauvin trial, New York Times reporter Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs reported.

“The way to get in control is not to allow them to win,” Waters said of political opponents, in comments that aired on FOX 9 in Minneapolis. “You’ve got to register and you’ve got to vote and you’ve got to take the power.”

She told MSNBC that she was in Minnesota to be “auntie Maxine” and support young people of color.

“We have to give support to our young people who are struggling and trying to make this justice system work for everybody. They see their peers being killed. Minneapolis is a great example of what’s wrong with the criminal justice system, what’s wrong with policing,” she told the network on Sunday.

“I wanted to be there as auntie Maxine to show them, not only do I love them and support them, but they can count on me to be with them at this terrible time in all of our lives.”

Waters has a history of in-your-face remarks and impassioned statements. In 2018, the California Democrat called for her supporters to “create a crowd” and publically “push back” against members of the Trump administration.

Rep. Maxine Waters is just another “useful idiot”.

Gentle readers…do you realize what we are witnessing?

The purposeful unraveling of the safeguards which those before us have put in place in order that we might live in a society where we can feel safe to venture from our homes.

Not only that, but as the cry from the “New Bolsheviks” is becoming louder and more high-pitched to do away with traditional law and order, spineless Far Left Democrat Senators, Representatives, Governors, and Mayors are actually giving them what they want: anarchy.

Why do they want anarchy?

In an article titled “Marx, Theoretician of Anarchism, written by Maximilien Rubel in 1973, and found on Marxists.org, the writer makes the following observation…

Marxism as the ideology of a master class has succeeded in emptying the concepts of socialism and communism, as Marx and his forerunners understood them, of their original meaning and has replaced it with the picture of a reality which is its complete negation. Although closely linked to the other two, a third concept – anarchism – seems however to have escaped this fate of becoming a mystification. But while people know that Marx had very little sympathy for certain anarchists, it is not so generally known that despite this he still shared the anarchist ideal and objectives: the disappearance of the State. It is therefore pertinent to recall that in embracing the cause of working class emancipation, Marx started off in the anarchist tradition rather than in that of socialism or communism; and that, when finally he chose to call himself a “communist,” for him this term did not refer to one of the communist currents which then existed, but rather to a movement of thought and mode of action which had yet to be founded by gathering together all the revolutionary elements which had been inherited from existing doctrines and from the experience of past struggles.

…Marx developed a theory of anarchism; and further, (and) in fact it was he who was the first to provide a rational basis for the anarchist utopia and to put forward a project for achieving it.

For decades now, the Democrats have moved further and further left of the Political Spectrum until, at this point, the Democratic Party is a Far Left political entity, ridiculing, hating, and seeking to destroy America History, traditional faith and values, and, in the process, radically changing our Constitutional Republic into just another failed Democratic Socialist country.

Through the mobilization of “useful Idiots” like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and Hollywood celebrities, private and political power brokers, like Rep. Waters, have “taken advantage of a crisis” to make their move to stoke the fires of anarchy through the use of organized riots in major American cities.

For several months now, they have used the death of George Floyd to attack and attempt to eliminate our first line of defense: “The Thin Blue Line”.

These Democrat Race-Baiting Power Brokers decided to follow the example of Vladimir Lenin, the disciple of Karl Marx, and start a revolution at the grass roots level with their own “New Bolsheviks”, “useful idiots” rioting over the promise of “shared wealth” and “radical change”.

Now that we no longer Have a strong American Patriot like President Trump in office, the Democrats’ dream of a Socialist Utopia ushered in through anarchy achieved by fiery rhetoric designed to shame Americans into not standing up to them is on the verge of becoming a reality.

They have already succeeding in having young Americans literally kiss the feet of those whom they have supposedly “offended”.

They even succeeded in causing the cancellation of “Cops” after 32 years on television and “Live P.D.”, a very popular program on A&E.

They have gone after every program which shows the police in a good light, even “Paw Patrol”!

An now, a member of the House of Representatives from California has crossed state lines to incite riots in Minnesota.

If the House Republicans do not back their threatening words with action, then they must be replaced by Republicans with spines in 2022.

It is time for America to stand up for our country…

Before it is gone.

Until He Comes,

Biden Press Secretary Psaki: “Law Enforcement Uses “Unnecessary Force” Resulting in the Death of “Black and Brown Americans”

See the source image

“Our country is suffering from a far-left radical movement … that is trying to defame, demoralize, defund, dismantle and dissolve our great police departments.” – Former President Donald J. Trump, August 15, 2020

FoxNews.com reports that

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a daily briefing Friday that “too often” law enforcement uses “unnecessary force” that results in the death of “Black and brown Americans.”

Psaki had been asked if President Biden had watched footage of the police shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo.

“I have not spoken with him this morning. I expect I’ll see him later this morning. I will say for those of us who did watch that video, it is certainly chilling and a reminder that across the country there are far too many communities where there is violence that is impacting that too often in this country,” Psaki said. “Law enforcement uses unnecessary force, too often resulting in the death of black and brown Americans.

“The president, again, has repeatedly said that he believes we need police reform. That’s what he says he’s calling for Congress to send to his desk,” the press secretary continued. “There’s an independent investigation, as you well know, and certainly we’ll see that play itself through.”

Still, the White House has distanced the president from more progressive members of his party who say that police are so corrupt they must be dismantled. Asked about Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s, D-Mich., call to end policing, Psaki said earlier this week “that is not the president’s view.”

Psaki said that Biden believes in using legislation, specifically the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which “can put many of these necessary reforms in place

The Chicago community and family members of Toledo were reeling after the release of police footage and other materials related to the March shooting of the boy, who was fatally wounded by an officer responding to a report of shots fired in the area.

According to video footage, Toledo appears to have his hands up when he is shot one time in the chest.

Footage from a surveillance camera provides a different perspective of the police chase, with Toledo appearing to reach behind the fence. The footage later shows a gun on the ground alongside the fence, feet from where Toledo was shot.

So, Appointed President Biden and the rest of you Far Left Democrats, how are you going to protect Americans when you run all of our municipal law enforcement officers off their jobs?

What are you going to do? Post “This is a Gun-Free Zone” signs all over your cities to discourage the criminals?

Tell all of the Gang Bangers to hand over their guns?

I know.

Since Minnesota Attorney General and his family are all Muslims, perhaps they plan on installing Sharia Law in Minneapolis.

After all, they do have a large Somalian population there, who gave us the America-hating, Anti-Semite, Far Left Democrat Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar.

They should have kept her to themselves.

Anyway, where did this idea that the Liberals are pushing of “community policing” come from?

On July 2, 2008, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama proclaims in a speech:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

This part of Barack Hussein Obama’s political platform was quickly hidden away, never to be spoken of again.

At least, not openly.

As is my wont to do, I have been thinking back over Obama’s Imperial Presidency, and his statements concerning America’s Municipal Law Enforcement Organizations.

When issues involving law enforcement arose during his presidency, time and again, Obama came on the opposite side from every single local law enforcement organization.

Now, isn’t the President of the United States supposed to be on the side of Law and Order?

Biden certainly isn’t.

Neither is the man pulling his strings, the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Why would Barack Hussein Obama not support local law enforcement during his “first” presidency?

Perhaps, because he wanted to build a National Municipal Law Enforcement Organization, under his command and the command of the Department of Justice.

Fast forward to today…

All of the cities and states which have experienced “trouble”  with police departments happen to be Blue States with Democrats in charge of State and Municipal Governments.

Instead of relying on traditional police departments and the American System of Law and Order, Democrats like those in the Minneapolis City Council want to have the power to circumvent the American System of Justice because of their issues in the past with it.

The death of ex-convict George Floyd gave them the excuse to attempt to defund police departments.

And now, with a Democrat in office, those who oppose Law and Order are all taking the side of the criminals.

Even the Democrat sitting behind the Oval Office…when he is not taking a nap.

Just like a criminal does not represent an entire race, neither do bad policemen represent an entire nation’s Law Enforcement Officers.

They are heroes.

So, please allow me to end today’s post with the text of a classic narration by the late, great Paul Harvey  titled “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.“What is a policeman?

“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.”

Until He Comes,

Pelosi, Schumer, and Other Dems Kneel for “George Floyd” for 8 Minutes While Wearing African Scarves to Pander for Black Votes

Pelosi-e1591635900699

https://twitter.com/toddstarnes/status/1270185740815785984?s=20

TheHill.com reports that

Senior Democratic lawmakers, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer knelt during a moment of silence shortly before unveiling a legislative package of police reforms Monday.

About two dozen lawmakers knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds as a tribute to George Floyd, the unarmed African American man who died after a now-former Minneapolis police officer pinned his knee on Floyd’s neck during an arrest for that length of time.

Lawmakers, wearing African kente cloth scarves, knelt in the Capitol Visitor Center before holding a press conference to unveil their legislation in response to almost two weeks of nationwide protests over police brutality toward African Americans.

Congressional Democrats take a knee as they observe a nearly nine minute moment of silence for George Floyd at Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol. https://t.co/JnqDlzMFDq pic.twitter.com/8CBdgtLUjz

— ABC News (@ABC) June 8, 2020
“We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said before the moment of silence began.

After almost nine minutes, Pelosi and the other lawmakers stood back up, though the Speaker needed the help of an aide due to her tall stilettos.

“You see how long it was to have that knee on his neck,” Pelosi said afterward.

Senate Democrats held a similar moment of silence last week.

“To every one of us, it was excruciating. It seemed an unbearably long amount of time. It felt so painful to get even an inkling of how this man and so many black Americans have suffered for so long,” Schumer said before Monday’s moment of silence.

Democrats’ sweeping legislative package includes several proposals from members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including a ban on the use of chokeholds and establishing a national database to track police misconduct.

Uh huh.

What The Hill is not telling you is that Pelosi, Schumer, and company were excoriated all day long yesterday from their over-the-top pandering for the sake of attempting to secure black American votes.

Those critics were wasting their time.

The word “shame” does not exist in their vocabulary.

The words “money” and “power” definitely do.

Their oblivious nature is evident by the African ceremonial scarves that they wore around their neck.

They are no more African than they are honest.

And, they have no idea about what is going on in distressed black communities because they all live in mansions in gated communities.

Now that we are months away from the 2020 Presidential Election, the Democrats’ Desperation has spun out-of-control because they have realized that nothing that they have thrown at Trump to damage him has worked.

Presently, neither riots nor Democrat-weighted push polls designed to discourage voters from casting their ballot for Trump on November 3rd are working.

And, on top of all they have tried, including mass hysteria over the Chinese Coronavirus, America’s Economy is beginning to comeback, exceeding all predictions.

Quite frankly, the Democrat Elite remain safe and secure in their own bubble, purposely oblivious to the day-to-day struggles of those of us average Americans who Hillary Clinton referred to as “Deplorables”.

Meanwhile, President Trump announced that he is going to resume his MAGA allies in a couple of weeks.

After all, if Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the other “protesters” can gather together without social distancing and not get sick with the coronavirus, then average Americans should be able to gather together in the same manner and have a great time with our President.

For my final thought today, I am going to let Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler speak for me.

The “Defund the Police” Movement, When It Actually Started, and Why It is Still a Bad Idea

protesters-rally-against-the-death-in-minneapolis-police-custody-of-george-floyd-in-times-square-in-new-york

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1269441320910753793?s=20
FoxNews.com reports that

Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to “dismantle” the police department and replace it with “a transformative new model for public safety.”

Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city’s Ward 5, explicitly led calls to “dramatically rethink” how the city keeps its people safe.

“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,” he tweeted. “And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due.”

His call was echoed by Lisa Bender, the president of the city council.

“Yes,” she said in response to Ellison. “We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.”

That was not the first time Bender had addressed calls to “dismantle” the city’s police force this week, however. On Wednesday she posted a thread about how a “white person” should think about dismantling the police.

“If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?” she said. “I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.”

Bender on Tuesday also said “I support continued diversion of funds from law enforcement to other priorities,” following calls from many to “defund the police.”

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.

Another council member to come out with calls for taking apart the city’s police department is Alondra Cano, who tweeted that “[t]he Mpls Police Department is not reformable” and “[c]hange is coming.”

Meanwhile, the president of the Minneapolis police union wrote a letter calling the riots in the city a “terrorist movement” and calling elected officials’ efforts to find fault in the police department “despicable.”

“Our chief requested 400 more officers and was flatly denied any,” Bob Kroll said. “This is what led to this record-breaking riot.”

He added: “I’ve worked with the four defense attorneys that are representing each of the four terminated individuals under criminal investigation, in addition with our labor attorneys to fight for their jobs. They were terminated without due process.”

Steve Fletcher, also a member of the Minneapolis City Council, condemned Kroll and the police union in a long thread in which he said the city should “declare policing as we know it a thing of the past.”

“Bob Kroll’s letter yesterday to the Minneapolis Police Federation membership showed us what rank-and-file officers voted for in their leadership, and it is yet another sign that the department is irredeemably beyond reform,” Fletcher said. “After watching MPD officers escalate and provoke anger all week, he asserts that if they’d only been allowed to use more violence, they could have put a stop to demonstrations. This is nonsense. MPD officers chose him as their leader.”

Fletcher continued: “I don’t know yet, though several of us on the council are working on finding out, what it would take to disband the MPD and start fresh with a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach capacity.”

According to the Star Tribune, the council is expected to vote Friday on a measure stemming from a state investigation into the police department that could make smaller changes in the short term. Bender, however, said the move is “not meant to be anywhere near starting this bigger conversation,” according to the paper.

Minneapolis isn’t the only city to consider major changes to its police department, either. The Los Angeles Times reported that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will try and cut between $100 million to $150 million from its police budget alone. But the proposed cuts to the LAPD don’t appear to include the kind of structural changes to the law enforcement apparatus proposed in Minneapolis.

The Liberals in Minneapolis and every other city who wants to “Defund the Police” have lost their minds.

What are they going to do? Post “This is a Gun-Free Zone” signs all over their cities to discourage the criminals?

Tell all of the Gang Bangers to hand over their guns?

I know.

Since Minnesota Attorney General and his family are all Muslims, perhaps they plan on installing Sharia Law in Minneapolis.

After all, they do have a large Somalian population there, who gave us the America-hating, Anti-Semite, Far Left Democrat Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar

They should have kept her to themselves.

Anyway, where did this idea of “community policing” come from?

On July 2, 2008, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama proclaims in a speech:

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

This part of Barack Hussein Obama’s political platform was quickly hidden away, never to be spoken of again.

At least, not openly.

As is my wont to do, I have been thinking back over Obama’s Imperial Presidency, and his statements concerning America’s Municipal Law Enforcement Organizations.

When issues involving law enforcement arose during his presidency, time and again, Obama came on the opposite side from every single local law enforcement organization.

Now, isn’t the President of the United States supposed to be on the side of Law and Order?

I know for a fact that the current one is.

Why would Barack Hussein Obama not support local law enforcement?

Perhaps, because he wanted to build a National Municipal Law Enforcement Organization, under his command and the command of the Department of Justice.

Fast forward to today…

All of the cities and states which have experienced “trouble”  with police departments happen to be Blue States with Democrats in charge of State and Municipal Governments.

Instead of relying on traditional police departments and the American System of Law and Order, Democrats like those in the Minneapolis City Council want to have the power to circumvent the American System of Justice because of their issues in the past with it.

The death of ex-convict George Floyd and the ensuing riots and staged protests across the nation have given them the excuse to attempt to defund police departments.

While it does appear that the accused officers acted improperly, just like Mr. Floyd did when he was still alive, they deserve their day in court.

And, just like a criminal does not represent an entire race, neither do bad policemen represent an entire nation’s Law Enforcement Officers.

So, please allow me to end today’s post with the text of a classic narration by the late, great Paul Harvey  titled “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.“What is a policeman?

“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.”

Trump Announces That Antifa will be Designated a Terrorist Organization, “Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits” – Matt. 7:16

untitled (319)

https://twitter.com/toddstarnes/status/1267267271975673856

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced Sunday that the U.S. government will designate the far-left group Antifa as a terrorist organization.

This comes as Trump has blamed Antifa for riots taking place across the country in response to the death of George Floyd, the unarmed black man who died May 25 while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn., after an officer kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes in an incident caught on video.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon.

It remains unclear exactly who was behind the escalation what began as peaceful protests against police, with accusations lobbed against both far-left extremists and white nationalists. The president has been forceful in pointing the finger at the former.

“It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump tweeted Saturday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was less decisive in stating who is behind the looting, arson, and violence that has taken place. While he called rioters “Antifa-like” during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” he said, “I think it still remains to be seen exactly how” the situation devolved from peaceful protests to something entirely different.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told “Fox News Sunday” he has evidence that people from out-of-state were involved in violent behavior in Minneapolis, but he did not specify whether they were affiliated with any particular group or ideology.

A resolution to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization was introduced in the Senate in 2019, stating that Antifa “represents opposition to the democratic ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all[.]”

The measure, sponsored by Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and co-sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, came in response to threats and actions Antifa-affiliated individuals made against ICE officials and journalist Andy Ngo

Of course, immediately after the President tweeted this, a couple of leftist reporters at The New York Times wrote an article stating that the President had no clear authority to do this.

They also claim that Antifa is not an official organization.

Well, Skippy, if you believe that the riots over the last several days all “just happened” to pop up at the same time in every major and some minor cities in America caused by a bunch of bussed-in young punks dressed in all black with black masks on then I ave two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.

 

 

As I write this, members of the National Guard and the Secret Service have formed a defensive barrier between the President and his family who are in the White House and a growing army of Left Wing “Protesters” who are milling around in Lafayette Park.

Antifa, as I wrote yesterday, follows the teaching of Saul Alinsky and Adolph Hitler, and picks a target, in this case, the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Policeman, as an excuse for their “Revolution”, in an attempt to “get what’s coming to them”.

Like Hitler did his followers, the Leaders of these “Revolutionaries”, like Former Weather Underground member “Bomber” Bill Ayers, founder of RefuseFascism.org are promising prosperity to all who follow them.

And, like these type of movements, there seems to be an endless supply of “Useful Idiots”.

Of course, the irony is, they are being funded by “Secret Power Brokers”,  including the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.

The problem that these “Revolutionaries” are facing is the fact that they remain in the minority.

The majority of Americans disagree with them.

Otherwise, Hillary Clinton would have won the Presidency.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and “White Supremacists” are responsible for the riots.

They have no “home training”, either.

These “spoiled brats”, like the Former Imperious President whom they worshipped as a living deity, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to bully and strike fear into average Americans, in order to regain the perceived power which they had under Obama’s failed presidency, while they collected their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

These protestors, in their immature, ego-driven rage, do not comprehend our nation’s Constitution, which they firmly believe is an antiquated “Dead ” document, with no more worth than a normal everyday piece of paper.

That Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including the average Americans who live between the coasts and who elected President Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives those protestors that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, or damaging property like the fascist communists of Lenin’s Revolution, whom they are seeking to emulate through their attempts to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America.

Their actions are far from noble. They are the actions taken by miserable little cowards who simply cannot accept that the majority of Americans do not believe the way that they do.

That is called “INTOLERANCE”.

It is also called FASCISM.

If they do not like it here, they are free to leave.

And, don’t let the screen door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

Until He Comes,

NBC News Tells Its Reporters to Call Minneapolis Riots, “Protests”…Who are You Going to Believe, NBC or Your Own Eyes?

safe_image (3)

Yesterday, on his nationally-syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh made the following observation…

The media is viewing Minneapolis looters as protesters.But Americans protesting to go back to work? Why, those are dangerous lunatics! Americans demanding to be let out, Americans demanding that their jobs be reopened, Americans demanding to go back to work are being treated as major problems — major lunatics, great threats to the health of America — whereas the people looting stores in Minneapolis are called “protesters.”

And if you take a look, look at who has been savagely condemned by the media. It’s people reopening their businesses. Not the people burning businesses. Not people looting them. Not the people tearing them down. In the media’s world, the people reopening their businesses are being savagely condemned — or people going to a swimming pool in the Ozarks, or people going to a beach somewhere.

They’re being condemned by the media as risky, as dangerous, as uncaring lunatics. And in the media’s world, this is all because the looters and the rioters were properly triggered. Their actions are completely understandable in Mediaville, in the media world because they were properly triggered, and so they are labeled “protesters.”

“Protests that turned violent,” now. Whereas opening up businesses and going to pool parties “too soon” is “premeditated manslaughter.”

Here is a related story which is an example of just how right Rush is.

FoxNews.com reports that

NBC News came under scrutiny Thursday for allegedly telling its reporters to refer to the events in Minneapolis this week as “protests” and not “riots,” according to one of its anchors.

Craig Melvin, an MSNBC host and co-anchor of “Today,” shed some light as to how his network is framing its reporting.

“This will guide our reporting in MN. ‘While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as ‘protests’ — not riots,'” Melvin tweeted Thursday morning.

Melvin’s tweet raised eyebrows among critics who accused the network of downplaying the violence that took place in the city to protest the death of George Floyd.

“What kind of alternate reality is this where the mass looting and burning of businesses is not considered a riot by a news network? A protest is what we had here in LA last night. What’s happening in Minneapolis is the textbook definition of a riot. Protesters don’t loot. Period,” local Fox affiliate reporter Bill Melugin tweeted.

“Tell that to the store owners whose businesses burned down,” Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor tweeted in response.

“NBC says that the riots are not riots. Those ‘protests’ must have magically caused spontaneous combustion that lit buildings on fire, threw flatscreen TVs into the hands of innocent ‘protestors’ and caused hands to slam hammers into cash registers. What a wild series of events!” filmmaker Robby Starbuck tweeted.

NBC News did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The protests in the Twin Cities were sparked by the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes as he was being arrested over alleged forgery.

Video footage that went viral from the arrest showed Floyd telling the police officer “I can’t breathe” as passersby begged the officers to get off him. Moments later, his lifeless body was laying on the ground.

The four police officers involved with the arrest have been fired from the Minneapolis Police Department. Criminal charges have yet to be made but a federal investigation is underway.

What NBC News did in the above article is that same thing that they have been doing for decades: viewing reality through a Liberal lens.

They, like the rest of the Main Stream Media, believe that they should decide what we, as average Americans, should believe about current events, not what we see with our own eyes.

When Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. locked arms with his supporters, black and white, to attempt to make a difference in the fight against inequality, that was a protest.

What vandals and looters have been doing since yesterday in Minneapolis and New York, vandalizing property and looting stores, threatening anyone who stands in their away is called RIOTING.

While nonviolent protests can be a noble endeavor, if for a legitimate cause, rioting is a selfish activity causing destruction and violence, often leading to more death than the original excuse for the riot.

If we were still in the days of the Roman Empire, when Christians were fed to hungry lions for sport in front of the crowds at the Roman Coliseum, the Main Stream Media, including NBC News, would take the side of the lions, defending them as being undernourished.

If the policy makers at NBC News believe that they are expressing the views of the majority of Americans in this matter, then they are living in a Liberal Echo Chamber of their own design.

The vandals and looters who are taking advantage of the death of George Floyd to incite violence and steal from and destroy businesses deserve national condemnation, not “understanding”.

They also deserve to be looking at the inside of a jail cell.
