Rep. Cori Bush: I Have Private Security For Protection, So ‘Suck It Up And Defund The Police’ (VIDEO)

Published

During a CBS News interview on Thursday, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) said that “defunding the police has to happen,” and that those who have a problem with her private security should just “suck it up” because she needs security for protection from those that would break the law by making an “attempt on [her] life.”

“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life and I have too much work to do,” Bush said. “There are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So, if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend $10 more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work.”

“So, suck it up and defunding the police has to happen,” Bush added. “We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”

“You faced some criticism in recent weeks over your push to defund the police,” a CBS News host said. “Campaign records show that you spent roughly $70,000 on private security, and some critics say that move is hypocritical. What’s your response to those critics?

Bush’s comments come after she denounced a Bipartisan group of lawmakers for the color of their skin.

“Is this the Bipartisan Infrastructure Group or the audience at a Kid Rock concert?” Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) tweeted, adding, “#NegotiationsSoWhite.”
Bush’s judgement of the group based off of their skin color came so a month before the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” King said at the time.

    if she is fearful that someone is trying to make an attempt to harm her or her family, why doesn’t she get the FBI or DC police involved. If she’s receiving threatening texts, emails or communication she needs to report it. I’d also like to tell Ms. Bush: sweetie, we do judge on character & not color of skin, perhaps it’s you that’s stuck with that mind set?

    For these “race hustlers”, like Ms
    Bush, they always go after the low hanging fruit.

    They use race as a catch all to shame white Americans, and prey on their guilt switch which the MSM is willing to push.

    Our society has a consumer based economy, and the promise of profit is color blind as all Americans are important customers.

    The Democrats use racist rhetoric to stoke the ugly embers of long ago fires, in an attempt to fuel anger and hatred in a congruous America of all peoples.

    A single mom in he inner city could say the same thing, “I have had attempts on my life and I have too much work to do,” and “There are too many people that need help right now”. Does everyone deserve safety.

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
