Dem presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden is set to attend a fundraiser tonight hosted by far-left “Defund the Police” activist John Legend, who has pledged to try and convince Biden to support the radical movement.Will Legend be as successful as Alyssa Milano was last year?
Does it matter?
The Dem train to defund the police has left the station and Joe Biden is on it, whether he likes it or not.
Even Biden’s own acknowledged potential VP picks have signaled their support for the effort. In just the last few days:
- Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said she “supports” the “spirit” of the movement to defund the police. She loves it because she only needs cops to arrest barbers!
- Senator Kamala Harris applauded Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s decision to slash the city’s police budget by $150 million. She’s excited to cut police positions and training—she has her own personal Capitol Police protection.
- Rep. Val Demings praised the Minneapolis city council’s decision to dismantle its police department as “very thoughtful.” Hey, let’s “reimagine no cops”…instead, you can call your local social worker with an APP! It’s cool!
- Senator Cory Booker said he supports the “sentiment” and “substance” of the movement to defund the police. Huh?
- Rep. Marcia Fudge said “every single city” should start looking at ways to defund the police. In the famous words of Eli Wallach: “We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!”
- Rep. Barbara Lee said she was “really proud” of Minneapolis for moving to dismantle its police department. Is she “really proud” of looters too?
Biden’s statement against defunding the police was so feeble that no one – not even his own potential VP picks or surrogates – is listening.
The National Democratic Party is now the official Party of eliminating police in the U.S.
VA State Mark Peake Demands Northam Call a Special Legislative Session
In a scathing letter to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, Lynchburg State Senator Mark Peake demanded the Governor call the Virginia General Assembly into session to debate and vote on his emergency powers.
“The emergency declared by the Governor and his associated unlimited powers appear to be going into perpetuity,” Peake said.
“It was never meant for that. I think it is time for our legislative body to vote on whether or not a state of emergency still exists. The statute was never intended to grant the governor unlimited power for an unlimited period of time.”
Peake is particularly incensed that Northam has unilaterally decided that many Virginia students will not go back to school in a normal way this fall.
