Biden Admin Refuses To Call For End Of ‘Defund The Police’ Despite Violent Crime Surge

Published

During Thursday’s White House press briefing, the Biden administration refused to call on Democrat mayors to stop pushing for the defunding of police departments despite the nationwide surge in violent crime.

“The mayor in San Francisco is now trying to add police funding because when she pulled it to reinvest in communities, crime went way up,” a reporter said. “So would President Biden, as the leader of the Democratic Party, advise Democratic mayors not to pull money from police budgets?”

“So, I can say this: It is absolutely unacceptable when gun crimes are taking lives, when families don’t feel safe going to the park or their local schools when thieves feel impunity in stealing from retailers. So, we applaud the mayor making sure that there is more police presence in the city to protect Americans,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded. “And so, if you’re a mayor — this is what we say to local leaders: If you’re a mayor or a local leader, there is a crime problem in your community, we think you should step up and do something about it, just as many mayors are already doing. And we’re — and we’ve made clear that we’re going to offer federal support to help you do that and to keep communities safe.”

“As just one example: The Department of Justice announced, last month, grants to help put 50 more cops on the beat in San Francisco and funding for over 1,000 more community-oriented policies — policies, roles nationwide,” she continued. “The President has proposed doubling that program. So, we want to make sure that — that mayors and local leaders do indeed step up and make sure that they’re protecting their community.”

The movement to defund the police, which was pushed by Democrats – including President Biden during his presidential campaign – resulted in a surge in violent crime across the country. In Austin, Texas, for example, murder reportedly increased by 300% in one year.

“Austin doesn’t feel as safe recently. Because it isn’t,” the advocacy group Save Austin Now states on their website. “We’ve seen a series of city policy decisions over the last 2 years that have led to a surge in both violent crime and property crime against Austinites. A 300% increase in murders this year. A double-digit increase in property crimes such as burglaries and carjackings. And a massive increase in reports of “soft crimes” that make us uncomfortable, especially us women. This isn’t the Austin we know and love, and it doesn’t have to be.”

    They can add 1 million cops, it won’t matter. As long as zero-bail and catch-and-release policies prevail, crime will continue to surge.

    I just read a list of the Top 10 cities that have had more homicides YTD than any year in recorded history. There’s another list of cities that are very close to that record. Then there are the cities that have had more homicides in 2021 than they have had in over 30 years. It’s all Black violent crime. It’s all in Democrat run cities, typically with Black DA’s who are doing ‘catch and release’ and are failing to prosecute a large percentage of criminals being caught by the police. Why? BLM ‘owns’ Biden and his handlers. ‘The Squad’ is the voice of the latest incarnation of the Democrat party and old race-baiter and white-haters like Maxine Waters couldn’t be happier. BLM was created during the Obama/Biden administration. Racial divisiveness, hatred for police, misreporting of all Black victim/White police officer shootings, demonizing of Caucasian culture… Obama/Biden. The 2020 BLM rioting, looting, arson and murder spree? Biden said and did nothing. Harris even called it “necessary for Democracy”. Monkey see, Monkey do. Ghetto vermin are Black savages running wild. You reap what you sow.

    I’m so tired of all these democrats speaking with their hands. I know it’s to distract everyone, but if they were in speech competition they would never win. Look at all the great speeches and you never really see them moving their hands

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
