Daniels says he will not allow the destruction of property and lives in his county and if he finds that his deputies are overwhelmed by antifa and BLM, he will deputize legal gun owners to join in the fight to protect the people he serves.
The BLM / Antifa mob have promised to bus in thousands of domestic terrorists to harass, intimidate, and potentially murder Trump supporters or members of the conservative media.
It is great to see a law enforcement leader make such a statement and place the trust in law abiding gun owners to restore order.
Daniels ended the video by stating that if they try him, he will give them the fame and attention that they want… which will include the pain that will befall them for resisting arrest and turning his county into a warzone.
Judson Sapp, a congressional candidate in Florida’s 3rd district which includes Clay County, told TGP the following.
“I live here in Clay County. Our conservative area will not tolerate these rioters. Times like these highlight why the Second Amendment is so very important. The right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed and rioters will not threaten us!”
Many are upset that New York City didn’t completely defund and dismantle the police like they are doing in Minneapolis. Since the riots, NYC has seen a 42 percent increase in homicides.
These activists that are calling to eliminate the police have no idea what they are asking for or what would work in place of the police department. Felons don’t care about laws and they definitely will not be impacted by a youth program or a social worker wanting to talk. Felons look for opportunities to commit crimes. How do they plan on addressing them without a police department?
Liberals need to stop reacting with their feelings and use commonsense.

New York City lawmakers voted Tuesday on budget changes that shifted $1 billion from the New York Police Department to programs that assist in youth and community development, a number that fell short of what many protesters in the city have demanded.
The City Council said in a statement that the city’s 2021 budget will include $837 million in cuts and transfers to the New York Police Department (NYPD) expense budget, which removes $1 billion from the NYPD’s spending when combined with associated costs.
The amount was far less than what some protesters demanded. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said earlier that $1.5 billion in cuts would not be enough.
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math,” she said. One Twitter user wrote, “This is like putting the NYPD budget in Groucho Marx glasses and calling it a day.”
Corey Johnson, the city council speaker, said, “The Council fought hard to get where we are, but I know this is just a starting point, not an ending point. We need to go farther.”
He added the budget agreement “was negotiated with a focus on police reform, youth services, and achieving equity, particularly for low-income communities of color.”
New York City Council Minority Whip Joseph Borelli voted no against the budget cuts and said, “know what we’re doing will create a more violent city.”
Borelli added that there were “72 shootings last week alone, and not one shot by [a] NYPD officer.”
“We must always have safety and we will in this city, but we are also going to amplify both safety and fairness by reaching our young people more deeply than ever before,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said speaking from a press conference Tuesday. “And that’s what this budget is all about.”
City lawmakers agreed to shift the funds away from the NYPD, but police reform activists are worried these funds will be moved around in a manner that still benefits the police department.
“To the thousands of New Yorkers who so admirably fought for budget justice over the past several weeks: we heard you and we stand with you,” Johnson said Tuesday. “We recognize that the City must move away from failed racist policing policies of the past.”
Rioting and agitators are still active across America. The news isn’t reporting it as much because people are getting tired of the unrest. And there is a fear that citizens might start fighting back if this doesn’t stop.
It is time for the Democratic Party to stop pandering and supporting these anarchists that are holding businesses, homes, and cities hostage with fear.
If you want to defund the police how will welfare workers and churches stop this nonsense?
America needs law and order. We look weak to the rest of the world because of these Democrats.
From Epoch Times
A group that included agitators armed with hammers attacked two police cars late Sunday, Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters on Monday.
A group of 25 to 30 that included individuals wearing “Black Lives Matter” shirts surrounded one of the cars, blocking the vehicle’s pathway and jumping on the SUV’s hood.
The group included people who officers reported shortly beforehand were armed with hammers, Craig said.
The police officer driving the SUV was driving slowly until the rear window was smashed.
“Officers reported that once they heard the rear window smashed … they were not certain that they were not being fired upon,” the police chief said. “They accelerated to get out of there in the event they were being fired upon.”
That’s when they accelerated, causing many of the group to disengage with the vehicle.
Several males who had hopped onto the hood held on when the driver accelerated. After stopping briefly, the driver sped away, reaching speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.
“The officers did the right thing,” Craig said. “They had to take quick, evasive action.”
If officers had waited, their vehicle may have been breached, he added.
The situation unfolded on Vernor Highway.
The investigation is still ongoing.
Craig read a text message he said was from a woman who was at the protest before leaving.
“They were plotting to provoke the police. As I was leaving, I saw those same guys hitting the police vehicle for no reason,” the unnamed woman said in the message.
The protest started out peaceful earlier Sunday. Most of the protests in recent weeks have been peaceful, according to police officials.
Once protesters began getting violent, they move into a criminal status, Craig said. He described some of the group as agitators, noting that rampant destruction was wrought by those types of individuals in late May.
The violent behavior Sunday included the several people who jumped onto the police car, he said.
Video footage showing one angle of what happened circulated widely Sunday night, leading to accusations that officers rammed protesters. It wasn’t clear how many people, if any, were injured. Police officials said they’re not aware of any injuries.
Minneapolis City Council members voted unanimously to amend the city’s charter Friday to remove the mandate for a police department— the first step toward disbanding it in the wake of George Floyd‘s death.
The amendment proposes the city replace the police department with a Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention, “which will have responsibility for public safety services prioritizing a holistic, public health-oriented approach,” a draft of the amendment said.
The proposal adds that the director of the new agency would have “non-law-enforcement experience in community safety services, including but not limited to public health and/or restorative justice approaches.” It also suggests setting up a division of licensed peace officers, who would answer to the department’s director.
Although the amendment received a 12-0 vote from council members, it faces an uphill battle as it makes its way past a policy committee and to the city’s Charter Commission for a formal review, at which point citizens and city officials can also weigh in.
If successful, the amendment will be put on the November ballot for a vote in the general election.
In this June 1, 2020 file photo, an emotional Terrence Floyd, second from right, is comforted as he sits at the spot at the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, Minn., where his brother George Floyd, encountered police and died while in their custody.
The pressure to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department mounted after the death of Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody on May 25 after an officer kneeled on his neck for over eight minutes.
However, the city’s mayor, Jacob Frey, has resisted collapsing the department entirely, saying that the proposal to do so shows a “significant lack of clarity.”
“If I’m seeing a lack of clarity, so are our constituents,” said Frey, who is a Democrat and who has said he supports deep structural change in the existing department.
Barry Clegg, chairman of the Charter Commission, has said the process to implement change so quickly after Floyd’s death may not be the best step forward.
“As I understand it, they are saying, ‘We are going to have this new department. We don’t know what it’s going to look like yet. We won’t implement this for a year, we’ll figure it out,’” Clegg said. “For myself anyway, I would prefer that we figured it out first, and then voted on it.”
This is another example of the Democratic party pushing more big government. Even though they have no authority over local governments they are passing laws to assume an Authoritarian position in government.
This is some of the most dangerous legislation Democrats can pass. Taking away the protections of police officers will only encourage officers to leave the force and discourage others from choosing it as a career.
From Washington Examiner
It may not be a plank in the official Democratic Party platform, but it’s clear that Democrats and their supporters want to eliminate state and local police. The radical left, which now controls the Democratic Party, is making a frontal assault on the police with their calls to defund and dismantle police departments. Democratic members of Congress are fighting a rearguard action through their dangerous Jerry Nadler-Nancy Pelosi anti-policing bill.
Included in the Nadler-Pelosi bill was a provision that limited the sentence of a person convicted of lynching to 10 years. The Democrats doggedly fought to defeat an amendment offered by Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas that would have made lynching punishable by life imprisonment or death-penalty eligible. Nadler argued that the death penalty was barbarous. But then, so is lynching.
In an effort to ameliorate Nadler’s concerns, Gohmert proposed a change that would maximize the penalty for lynching to life in prison. Nadler and the Democrats rejected this, apparently content with the bill’s maximum of 10 years punishment for lynching.
The heart of the anti-police bill is an effort to eliminate all legal protections police officers have. Since Democrats are also attempting to bring all police power to the national government, their bill is also chock full of tactical mandates on local police departments.
A court-made rule gives police officers limited, qualified immunity for their acts. Because of language in a Supreme Court ruling, there is a need to reform immunity provisions, while protecting police. Many Democrats seemed to acknowledge the need to give some protection for officers who do not intentionally or recklessly harm a citizen but were unwilling to accept any Republican attempts to reform the immunity laws. Democrats preferred a total elimination of all legal protection to our police officers.
If the Democrat bill becomes law, here is what will happen.
All police officers will be personally liable for any decision they make and for any accident they cause. Currently, officers receive internal discipline, and in cases where an officer is alleged to have committed a crime, such as the George Floyd case, the officer is subject to the civil authorities. Victims have a claim on the department in all cases.
Because an officer has virtually unlimited exposure under the Democrats’ proposal, an officer will not only put his life on the line every time he is working a shift, but he will put his home, his possessions, and the sanctity of his family on the line.
That means the risk of being a career cop will immeasurably outweigh the rewards.
It also means that it will be even harder to recruit and retain officers. Departments that are already depleted by vacancies will find it harder to fill those vacancies.
Officers who have been on the force will leave to find a job that does not impose the risks Democrats insist are necessary.
For those officers who are serving and believe they cannot change careers, the choice will be whether to get involved in a volatile situation and risk losing not just their lives, but everything they have worked for, or to wait until the volatility ends and the officers can enter the scene without those risks.
In other words, enforcement will be spotty, and many officers will leave the force to find other work.
The ultimate result of the bill will be an emasculation of local law enforcement and higher crime rates.
Democrats want to reduce or eliminate transfers of certain military surplus equipment to state and local police forces. Democrats fail to remember history. Before police forces received military surplus, they were hopelessly outgunned by street gangs and violent thugs. Further, some of the equipment involves machinery necessary to conduct rescue operations.
Ultimately, neither party has fully acknowledged that there is no authority for the federal government to control local law enforcement except in cases where federal civil rights are being violated. An example of this would be in the “autonomous” area in Seattle where constitutionally recognized rights are being trampled on, and the state and local officials are failing to protect those rights. The U.S. representative from that area, a Democrat, touted the peaceful nature of the people who have forcefully taken over the area, and described a portion of this unlawful takeover as a “community garden.”
Were the Democratic bill to become law, the best police officers will leave, the best recruits will find something better to do, and local police agencies will die on the vine. That is the Democrat design. Let the crazy, violent, “fictional” groups such as antifa or Black Lives Matter agitate to eliminate state and local police departments, while Democrats in Congress squeeze the life out of local police agencies.
Look for higher crime rates across the nation and police power centralized in Washington, D.C.
In the past weeks protestors and rioters have been demanding for the city to cut the police department funds.
When Cuomo said that most cops were good many called for his resignation.
And a New York chapter of BLM said they were going to assemble their own “Peace officers”. Hawk Newsome who claims to be a leader of Black Lives Matter movement says he will develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to combat police brutality in black communities during the so-called war on police.
On June 12, 2020 CNew York City leadership said, “We have identified savings that would cut over $1 billion dollars, including reducing uniform headcount through attrition, cutting overtime, shift responsibilities away from the NYPD, finding efficiencies and savings in OTPS spending, and lowering associated fringe expenses,” they said.
The group said the $1 billion reductions is an ambitious goal but believes it is the right move to remedy failed policing policies of the past.
“As we do this, we must prioritize the most impacted communities and hear their demands and needs across all areas during this budget process. This should be a deliberative and good faith decision of the best path forward for New York City,” the statement continued.
Now on Thursday NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said that the homicide rate in New York has hit a five-year high as the number of people shot has jumped 42 percent compared to last year on the heels of an “implosion” of the city’s judicial system.
This is the result of the city trying to appease a group of rioters and protestors amid a time of high tensions between police officers and the black community. Moves have been made that have not been thought out in a strategic way.
We cannot keep people safe without keeping bad, dangerous, people off the streets,” Shea said. “You have a criminal justice system that’s imploding. That’s the kindest way to put it.”
Shea said that if the Supreme Court can hold proceedings during the pandemic, there should be a way to arraign people and have grand juries during these pandemic times, pleading “do it virtually, do something.”
The commissioner also said supervised release is a “fallacy,” and that there’s no system right now to keep an eye on those who are released from prison — including Riker’s Island — and supposed to be monitored.
“Releasing people to homeless shelters is a recipe for disaster,” he said. “There is no safety net, often we don’t even have a clue where they are.”
Shea summed up his thoughts bluntly: “The people who are suffering are the people in New York City.”
Compared to the same week last year, NYPD crime data shows the total number of shooting victims rose 42 percent, along with 166 homicides to date compared to 134 from 2019. That represents a 24 percent increase in homicides year-over-year, marking an increase of 2.5 percent over year-to-date totals from five years ago.
Former NYPD Chief of Patrol Wilbur Chapman said that in this instance, the uptick is the rule, not the exception.
“Spikes in crime are not aberrations. Spikes in crime are a reality,” Chapman said. He believes that Shea’s decision to get rid of the anti-crime units was a mistake, and that small units of experienced officers who are familiar with the neighborhood is the best way to get guns off the street. Instead, he says the NYPD chose to “throw the baby out with the bath water.”
While calling the uptick “extremely alarming,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said he did not want to see “heavy-handed policing,” but rather encouraged a “new way of policing in the city that calls for community involvement.”
“Let local communities decide who is going to police them. Police commanders are the most powerful agency heads in our city and we don’t have enough say so on who is coming to particular communities – I think that is an important piece,” Adams said.
Shea also addressed the recent protests in the city, saying the department is conducting an after-action report which will be made public.
On the busiest days of the protests, the NYPD counted 72 demonstrations in one day. During that peak time, Shea believes the NYPD did a good job overall but given the incidents under investigation, said there were “things we did well and … there’s things we have to learn and do better.”
One of the things the NYPD is looking at is changing the training for officers, making it more hands-on. The commissioner said it may be best to take some of the experience “out of the classroom and take it into the field.”
Specifically, Shea said they’ll look at tactics they could improve — including better supervision and how to deal with instances where a crowd of 500 is protesting peacefully, but five people use the protests as cover to commit violence.
Shea also announced Wednesday a series of departmental moves to try and broadly re-shape the NYPD’s Community Affairs operation, one of which was placing Chief Jeffrey Maddrey in charge of the unit.
Former Vice-President Joe Biden is actually going to debate, President Trump, three times. The events carry a wide range of expectations but for most Trump supporters I have spoken to, the debates will be the knockout they are all praying for. For a growing number of Democrats, these could be disastrous as there is a concern in their ranks about the former Vice-President’s mental acuity.
Some in the Biden camp have taken solace in the fact that Joe is not out of the basement, destroying the notion that he’s mentally fit to be President.
Top Joe Biden surrogate Terry McAuliffe was recorded saying Dems prefer Biden stay ‘in the basement’ “People say all the time, ‘Oh, we got to get the vice president out of the basement,'” McAuliffe told the “monthly breakfast” of the Norfolk City Democratic Committee. “He’s fine in the basement. Two people see him a day: his two body people. That’s it. Let Trump keep doing what Trump’s doing.”
With this in mind, to my surprise, the Biden campaign has just agreed to the 3 debate schedule agreed to prior to the COVID shutdown. He has benefited from the 3 months in his home basement, only broadcasting scripted video events, and speaking to a few people a day.
What can be called, train wrecks, these online events, with teleprompters, have been full of technical glitches, memory malfunctions resulting in incoherent speech, sometimes offensive to his base, and even forgetting he was live walking away from the camera. The most memorable event was the interview he forgot his mask was hanging on his ear the entire time.
Fortunately for Biden’s team, the fake news networks did a masterful job of minimizing the errors and promoting him as the only hope to stop the ‘dangerous’ Donald Trump.
Below is the tweet containing the letter from the Biden campaign manager confirming the dates.
“Vice President Biden will accept and participate in the Commission’s planned Presidential candidates’ debates for September 29, October 15, and October 22; his running mate will participate in the Vice Presidential candidates’ debate set for October 7,” the letter reads. “Joe Biden looks forward to facing Donald Trump in a multi-debate series that the American people have come to expect from their leaders; we hope that President Trump would not break that tradition or make excuses for a refusal to participate.”
The presidential debates were to have taken place at the universities of Indiana, Michigan, and Tennessee. The singular vice presidential debate to take place in Utah. But this afternoon, not wanting to be responsible for the beating, I mean because of COVID-19 health concerns, Michigan University backed out. The October 15th debate will now be held at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. The other 2 Presidential debates will be held at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, on Sept. 29 and Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 22.
The debates will be the most anticipated, watched, and possibly one-sided Presidential debates in American history. A lot can happen before them, but the reported surge in the polls for former Vice-President Biden could be wiped out in one evening if the Trump team and many American’s expectations come to pass.
After a night of chaos, law enforcement has forced a group out of the zone in front of the White House that’s been labeled “Black Lives Matter Plaza”.
The group tried to set up a Seattle-style “autonomous zone,” which they called the “Black House Autonomous Zone.” On Tuesday the police moved the protesters out and cleared the area near Lafayette Square and St. John’s Episcopal Church.
The night before the group also tried to take down the statue of Andrew Jackson.
“Defund the Police” street graffiti was also removed from the area on Tuesday.
Tuesday morning President Trump said that protesters who attempted to establish an “autonomous zone” in the nation’s capital would be met with “serious force” after a night of police clashing with the protestors.
“There will never be an ‘Autonomous Zone’ in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!”
There will never be an “Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!
Twitter placed a warning over Trump’s tweet saying it violated their rules about “abusive behavior”. But you can still hit “view” and see the tweet.
It seems Twitter is siding with this anarchist group that overtook Seattle with force. In the C.H.O.P area, people are being held hostage and one man was killed this past weekend. And Twitter is concerned that President Trump authorizes force to keep them from setting up another “autonomous zone”? I think they have their priorities messed up.
Yet Twitter allows this tweet with no violation warning. Seems they are only concerned about “abusive behavior” when it comes to the president which they hate.
Chicago experienced a violent Father’s Day weekend with 102 people shot and 14 of those lost their lives. Including a 3-year-old boy and teenagers.
The question is, where is Black Lives Matter? If black lives really matter to them shouldn’t they be rallying in Chicago right now asking for justice against their murderers? Where is the outrage?
Black Lives Matter only cares when a black person is killed by a white person. But if you really want to look at who is disproportionately killing black people, it’s actually black people. Statistics prove this time and time again. And yet, the media and race-baiters want you to focus on white cops and cops, in general, being the problem. There may be a few bad cops that need to be held accountable but the main enemy of the black community are blacks.
Let’s look at some statistics. First, here are statistics on people shot to death by police officers from 2017-2020. Looking at the black numbers only, we see in 2017 223 were killed, in 2018- 209, and in 2019- 235.
According to a simple Google search, the black population is 41.4 million. The percentage of blacks being shot to death by police is an extremely low percentage.
In 2016 U.S.News wrote an article on race and homicides in America by race. Most homicides in America occur from the same race. More whites kill whites and more blacks kill blacks as seen here. However, it is important to remember that blacks are only 13% of our population yet their numbers are almost equal to those of white people who make up 76% of the population.
The article reported by U.S.News concluded:
Black people have consistently accounted for close to half the country’s homicide victims, making up more than 50 percent of the broader pool of those killed overall every year since 2010. The number of black victims increased 15 percent in 2015 over 2014.
Of the 13,455 cases from last year (2015) in which the FBI listed a victim’s racial information, 7,039 victims – or 52.3 percent – were black. That compares with 5,854 cases – or 43.5 percent – in which the victim was white, an increase of about 8 percent from last year.
It’s a disparity that becomes more pronounced in the context of population, as 2015 Census estimates suggest that whites account for 77.1 percent of the overall U.S. population of roughly 321 million, while blacks comprise 13.3 percent.
These statistics from the FBI are from 2016. It shows that 2,870 blacks were killed in homicides. 2,570 of them were killed by another black man.
In 2019 Chicago Sun-Times reported 503 homicides. That’s just in one city.
If Black Lives Matter really cares about blacks’ lives they need to look in the mirror first. Their culture is destroying their race, families, and communities. The message seems to be, although probably not intentionally, don’t you kill us because we want to do that all by ourselves.
