#DefendThePolice

Who would have guessed gun crime would get out of control?

Surely those bright spark Democrat mayors in NYC, Chicago, Portland and Minnesota can work out that defunding the police might cause a spike in crime and gun violence? That curtailing what actions are at the disposal of the police would hand these cities over to the criminals.

There have been 777 shootings in NYC in 2020, one more than the 776 that took place in 2019.

Murders in Chicago more than doubled compared to the same month last year, according to the Chicago PD. In 2020 there have been 430 homicides. In July, murders are up 139%YoY.

In Minnesota, gun violence is up 72%YoY. Mayor Jacob Frey said., “Year-to-date this has been a higher shooting victim total than the last five years, with 288 victims. The next closest is 2016 with 178.

In Portland gun violence is up 4-fold. From July 1-13 there have been 42 shootings vs 11 in the same period last year.

And guess what, NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo has admitted concern that wealthy taxpayers could leave NY for good.

Roadway Moving President Ross Sapir has said his company has experienced its busiest season ever since it was founded. United Van Lines CEO Marc Rogers also said over 60% of those leaving NY are earning north of $100,000.

Tax collections have plummeted during coronavirus, falling 42% in June. Losing the wealthy for good could leave gaping holes in the budget. Cuomo might argue they left over COVID-19 but soaring gun crime is hardly an inducement to return after the pandemic passes.

Still, these Dems keep assuring us, “we’ve got this under control.”

Florida Police Union unanimously endorses Trump

Who knew that standing up for the cops might endear them when their own mayors threw them under the bus?

The Florida Police Benevolent Association (FPBA), the largest police union in Florida, endorsed President Trump by a unanimous voice vote last week.

FPBA President John Kazanjian said, “I spelled it out on what’s going on, not just in Florida but across this country that, ‘Hey, you know what, we’re getting beat up. We’re getting used like a punching bag, and we’re tired of it, and President Donald Trump has been there for us. He supported us…We’re 30,000 strong. We go from the panhandle to Daytona, to Tampa down to Miami and the KeysNot only the 30,000 votes that we had from the members in Florida. Don’t forget about our friends and families, retirees … I believe the last cycle, we also put the president on top and guess what? We’re going to come out in force this time to put the president on top!”

“Peaceful” protestors set fire to pig’s head wearing a police hat in Portland

Oh and it was set alight atop an American flag. How much can these people hate their country? The irony is that many of these social justice warriors would be the first people to call the police if their personal safety was at risk.

Yet another reason why Trump should win in a landslide. Normal everyday mainstream Americans surely don’t want to associate with a party that accepts the actions of these despicable brainwashed Marxists.

Here is betting the Democrats don’t say a word.

Spineless SJWs in Seattle

The Seattle City Council has determined that multiple roles traditionally operated by the Seattle Police Department should be replaced with the ‘Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention.(DOCS&VP).’

Their logic is clear enough:

Whereas, the Council is committed to confronting the structural and institutional racism as a fundamental step towards addressing the racist institution of policing

…Whereas, these protests forced many nationwide and in Seattle to confront the racism that has been plaguing the Black community for centuries and spread to other communities of color, the harmful impacts of white supremacy culture, and the Seattle Police Department’s (SPD) role in perpetuating racism and violence.

As a city, whites make up 65.7%, Asians 14.1%, Black 7.1% and Hispanic 6.3%.

Ethnicity of the Seattle PD is 74%, 6.9%, 8% and 4.7% respectively.

For what it is worth, if the Seattle PD perpetuates so much racism, why is the Chief of Police Carmen Best, black? Why is Assistant Chief – Special Operations Bureau Eric Greening, black? So of the 8 command staff, 50% are white. Meaning 50% aren’t.

The DOCS&VP will be required to have:

Culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections

• Well versed in de-escalation skills and mental health support

• Trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis

• Connected to resources like housing, food security, and other basic needs.

How spineless are the Democrat council members, so desperate to score moral preening points, that they spit in the face of the brave men and women who defend them?

Mayor Jenny Durkan already displayed her brazen incompetence over CHAZ. Stands to reason that her council share her shocking lack of judgment. Await another spectacular failure which will only end up perpetuating the very things they think they’ll stop. Madness.

Detroit Police Chief explains why his city isn’t in flames

Detroit Police Chief James Craig explains why his city hasn’t fallen foul of violent mobs. Put simply – zero tolerance. Who knew? Amazing what can happen when a city puts pride in its police force. They respond. #RefundThePolice #DefendThePolice #BlueLivesMatter #DefendTheBlue

Maybe the leaders of Detroit also know that the massive depopulation of the city over so many years means that common sense has prevailed. Here is a piece we wrote in Jan 2017.

We didn’t start the fire

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty turned on the Portland Police blaming its officers for sending in saboteurs to start fires and then falsely accuse peaceful protestors of arson. She has since walked back those remarks justifying it as,

Today I let my emotions get the most of me during council and the comment I made to the press. But I’m angry, frustrated, and horrified by what has happened these past 50 days.”

Isn’t it amazing that absolutely no footage has surfaced of such crimes being committed? Especially in a world where everyone is a roving reporter. Portland Police have even invited council members to join them on the front lines to see for themselves. None have taken up the offer.

Hardesty switched her accusation to Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler for his spineless inaction to prevent federal government officers targeting Portland because it is a sanctuary city.

How do these people get elected? As Daryl Turner, president of the Portland Police Association said,

Politicians bent on power, perpetuating misinformation and untruths, are just as guilty of using their privilege to hijack this movement as the rioters who are committing violent acts, burning, and looting,”

You’ll never guess the party affiliation of Hardesty!

When political correctness alienates half your audience

It appears that A&E Network decided to can it’s popular ‘Live PD‘ program about cops busting criminals and serving the community because it didn’t want to be seen to glorify the law enforcement profession.

As Forbes noted,

According to data from Nielsen, A&E’s prime time viewership between June 11 and July 19 was 498,000 people. That number is 49% less than from this period last year and the key demographics of adults 18-49 and 25-54 declined 55% and 53%, respectively.

At times, Live PD and it’s derivatives made up 85% of eyeballs for A&E which reached audiences of up to 1.9m viewers.

Seems like a case of corporate suicide. Let’s kneel at the altar of political correctness even when the paymasters weren’t asking for it.

Police officers explode at their (so called) leaders

A powerful video exposing the true feelings of law enforcement officers due to conditions created by cowardly Democrat leaders who wish to defund them. One Milwaukee police chief said his officers are being followed home by the mob!

Americans let Nancy Pelosi know what they think of her

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, never one to shy away from full-blown identity politics, said, “Americans across the country are calling for an end to racial injustice and police brutality. Tune in at 11 pm ET for my conversation with Congressional Black Caucus Chair Karen Bass and Soledad O’Brien.

Note she is also prepared to speak alongside BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-proclaimed Marxist and the racist Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley who said, “we don’t need any black faces who don’t want to be a black voice.

We thought the comments on Nancy Pelosi’s Facebook invite were quite telling:

She is the cause

AMERICANS are calling for an end to the looting, the riots, the destruction to property, the loss of innocent lives, to the Democratic Party using the black community as pawns.”

“You are an embarrassing mess”

But what we are calling for is an end to people who hate this country!! We want to trade YOU for citizens of other countries who are thankful to live in a country where they love and YOU HATE! Let us help you pack!

Nancy, you and your minions sat by and watched Black-owned businesses being burned to the ground, Black-owned businesses looted and destroyed, and did nothing because allowing it to continue and keeping cities shut down to wreck the economy played into your evil plan. Now you want us to believe you care about Black lives? You are a joke.

“All lives matter!
Pelosi, you have guts and I admire you for that but the issue is whether Police Rules and regulations were wrong?
Yes, they were!
So, why blaming the police instead of those who had made those rules?
Police follow the rules, just like soldiers!
Why blaming Police officers for following the rules?
The rules were brutal!”

You said no to consideration to the Justice Act 3 weeks ago.
You refused to talk about it.
BLM Movement grabbed the corporate millions and ran with it.
Democrats ignored reform and change and went on vacation.

The BLM movement is a hate group, it’s the same thing as the KKK. They chose the name to make it seem racist if you don’t agree with them. This is called a Misnomer. It’s used the same as a loaded question, that many news anchors use, it’s used in a way that if you respond correctly, it gives the illusion you’re a bad person. It’s very deceitful, and wrong..
Cause yes black lives do matter along with white lives, brown lives, ALL LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well except pedophiles, screw them guys.

“We have watched the Democrat leaders kneel in the halls of Congress for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in honor of George Floyd, a black man killed at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for a fallen soldier.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands upon thousands of aborted babies.
I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white, black, Hispanic or Asian police officer.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of black on black murder victims. 18 in 24 hours yesterday and 191 just in the first 5 months of 2020 all in Democrat-led Chicago.
I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in our nursing homes as a result of Coronavirus decisions enforced by Democrat governors.
I have never seen them kneel or even recognize the attacks or deaths at the hands of violent protesters and riots still taking place today.
I have never seen them kneel or recognize the utter devastation of already struggling businesses across the nation.
Of course, what happened to George Floyd should never happen again to anyone no matter their color and especially by police who are supposed to protect us.
But WHY are Democrat leaders and even the mainstream media completely ignoring these other deaths and destruction? Don’t they deserve to be honored too?

“continuing to stir up problems instead of fixing them…..😡

There is no racial injustice and police brutality is rare. Democrats are just trying to divide us.

More comments available here. You will struggle to find comments in support of her event.

Nancy Pelosi’s imagination vs Portland Police report

Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi knows one never to waste a crisis. She described the Portland Police actions to quell violent protestors in a tweet as:

“Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protestors and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti…These are not the actions of a democratic republic.

@DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission.

Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”

At least Pelosi provided yet another example of her zero commitment to law and order and her ability to conjure up lies against law enforcement officers.

Here is what they were arrested for:

In the evening hours of Thursday, July 16, 2020, a group of a couple hundred people gathered at Laurelhurst Park in Southeast Portland. A separate group of a couple hundred people gathered in downtown Portland near the Justice Center.

Around 8:20 p.m…they gathered on East Burnside Street blocking all lanes of traffic. For about an hour, the group shined flashlights and lasers at officers standing outside the precinct. The group was asked by the sound truck to stay peaceful.

At around 9:52 p.m., the group began making statements about wanting to enter Southeast Precinct and burn down the property. The group was admonished by the sound truck and told not to enter the property or they would be subject to arrest or use of force. The group continued to stand in the street and started a small fire on East Burnside Street. Other members of the group disregarded the messages given by the sound truck and crossed on to Southeast Precinct property.

…After removing the fence, the group began using it to block traffic. Officers arrived at Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Salmon Street in an attempt to fix the fence. While officers did this, the group threw full bottles at officers. After fixing the fence, officers disengaged the crowd.

By 11:15 p.m., the crowd outside of Southeast Precinct shined lasers at officers… At 11:45 p.m., an unlawful assembly was declared due to several people in the crowd committing criminal activity. The criminal activity consisted of throwing rocks, bottles, and sticks, as well as pointing green lasers at officers. The group was asked to leave the area and move to the south and the west.

At 11:55 p.m., much of the group had not left the area despite warnings and officers began to disperse the crowd. While dispersing the group, a vehicle associated with the group drove up behind officers, narrowly missing officers on foot and causing an extremely dangerous situation...

At 12:45 a.m…Most of the group who had returned to Southeast Precinct continued to stand on East Burnside Street blocking all lanes of traffic despite all the warnings. Officers once again began to disperse the crowd and made several arrests.

No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau.”

So never mind the repeated warnings to remain peaceful. Play silly games win silly prizes.

Graffiti? Peloai lied. Democrats once again openly accept mob violence, while disparaging law enforcement as “stormtroopers.”

Is it any wonder all the police unions, representing 900,000 members are saying they’ll endorse Trump?
