Biden On Defunding The Police: Do Republicans Think We’re Sucking Blood Out Of Kids?

Published

on

President Biden demonstrated his relationship with reality on Thursday after attempting to rebut a reporter who questioned the administration’s claims on Republicans being the ones advocating for defunding the police.

“I’m the Democratic Party; I am president. So is the Speaker of the House and so is the, the Majority Leader,” Biden claimed. “We are not defunding the police.”

“Okay,” a reporter responded. “And are there people who — in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?”

“Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?” Biden responded.

Biden’s response was in support of his administration’s claim that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police, a claim that earned “Three Pinocchios” from the Washington Post.

The Washington Post reported, “Although Republicans all opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package, no one voted to cut, or defund, anything. Rather, Democrats proposed $350 billion in emergency funds for state and local governments, and Republicans voted against those extra funds. That’s not a reduction.”

Contradicting the Biden administration’s claim, numerous Democrats have actually defunded their city’s police departments. In New York City, for example, Democrats removed $1 billion from the New York Police Department’s budget, which was criticized by other Democrats for not being enough. Further, in Los Angeles, Democrats cut the Los Angeles Police Department’s budget by $150 million, and the move was praised by Vice President Kamala Harris.

    Leo,

    You have to know your Ps (P is for Party) and especially your Qs (Q is for Quazy). They are now trying to link the two in that statement and you don’t want that because they are not. Echoing it spreads the inference. Never assume these guys don’t know exactly what they are doing. Never. Always be asking yourself why.

    Sucking the blood out of children? Biden’s dementia is really noticeable. He can’t string 2 coherent sentences together. He can’t even focus enough to get to the end of 1 sentence without loosing his train of thought, stuttering and stammering then changing his answer in mid-sentence. He’s mentally and physically unfit for office.

    Democrats saying that Republicans are for defunding the police is called projection, a common attribute of a psychopath.

    Geez…it doesn’t take much for anyone to realize that all the bs that occurred in the ‘red’ states during the Floyd riots of death and destruction where lawlessness occurred. As a nation that used to believe in law and order, the left panders to any large group in exchange for votes. The left has lost all reasoning.

    AOC, Omar, Presley, Sanders, Lightfoot, DeBlasio, DC Mayor. The Laughing Hyena Harris supports bail money for felonious rioters. The list goes on of Dem, Lib, Progressive socialists who want to defund the police. Biden actually said, “the reality is , crime is down”.
    #defund the Democratic Party.

    Sure Biden, let’s keep lying. In my city, Austin, TX, our democrat mayor and council defunded our police $150,000,000. Unbelievably, the downtown office is boarded shut. 🤬 They’re RUINING my native home. He can skip around the issue and give nonsense answers, but the truth is what it is.

    Anybody with a functional brain can see what’s going on & stop drinking the piss or all will choke you can find someone to state your case to without all this backwards mess in someone else’s time and if you’re looking for employment I would ask for a refundable credit just on history alone. If you are truly concerned about how we are spending our money we need to be transparent with everything & it’s true Karma is a “Bitch” & you know that the Lord despise “Ugly”, I guess the proof will be made

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”

Youngkin Replaces State’s Department of Equity and Inclusion with Anti-CRT Leaders

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town

Published

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town. Newly elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin just ripped the roof off of Virginia’s “woke” elite. Youngkin completely gutted the employees of the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and then rebuilt it, filling the positions with reasonable individuals.

Christopher Rufo tweeted, “Glenn Youngkin has asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign and tapped anti-critical race theory leader Angela Sailor to lead the department. In her first move, Sailor eliminated the word ‘equity’ and replaced it with ‘opportunity.”

Youngkin asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign, then put Sailor in charge to lead the department. Sailor is a former policy expert at The Heritage Foundation;. Having replaced the word ‘equity’ for ‘opportunity’ at the department, Sailor is now formally the DOI “Director of Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusion.”

Citizen Free Press reports “Youngkin also issued an executive order to refocus the DEI office, tasking Sailor and her staff to work on economic opportunity, cooperation among religious groups, promoting ‘free speech and civil discourse’ at colleges and universities, and ensuring that Virginia’s history curriculum is ‘honest, objective, and complete.”

Rufo’s tweet included a link to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch which reported “Former Gov. Ralph Northam created the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2019 in the aftermath of the blackface scandal that nearly ended his term. The office has been unstaffed since its former chief and her four staffers, who served at the will of the governor, were not asked to stay in their jobs.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

Youngkin’s first executive order signed Saturday seeks to ban “inherently divisive” concepts from Virginia classrooms.

In recent blog posts for The Heritage Foundation, Sailor said that lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist,” are “the textbook definition of racism.”

“No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in July in a piece titled, “Schools Hiding Behind Diversity and Inclusion Rhetoric to Spew Critical Race Theory Vile.”

“But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.”
