Posted on 09/27/2023 3:45:56 PM PDT by lowbridge
Biden launched the White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention on Sept. 22, as part of his administration's effort to "combat the epidemic of gun violence that is tearing our families, our communities, and our country apart." Officially helmed by Vice President Kamala Harris, the initiative will be led in part by Greg Jackson, the former executive director of the left-wing Community Justice Action Fund.
The president lauded Jackson and Rob Wilcox, whom Biden also tapped for the office, for "being advocates for change." But the change Jackson advocates for puts him at odds with a major White House stance.
Jackson has attacked police departments and their budgets throughout his career, including in a January 2021 University of Maryland policing seminar when he lamented that he is "struggling to survive while … police budgets thrive." That same year, Jackson participated in an Obama Foundation webinar entitled "Re Imagining Policing," during which he touted "community-led violence intervention and prevention strategies" in place of traditional law enforcement. The goal, Jackson said, is to "ultimately reduce the need for policing."
Biden has sought to distance himself from anti-police rhetoric throughout his term, a stance that has put him at loggerheads with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. During his 2022 State of the Union address, Biden said, "the answer is not to defund the police, but to fund the police." The White House webpage announcing the Office of Gun Violence Prevention notes that "President Biden continues to call" for legislation that "would put more police officers on our streets."
The Community Justice Action Fund scrubbed Jackson’s bio and other information from its website prior to Biden’s announcement. But a review of the Internet Archive reveals that the organization routinely railed against increased funding for law enforcement.

This should get Hunter acquitted of federal firearms charges. /s Hypocrisy anyone?
Wouldn't it make more sense for you fags to "combat" what the liberal turd rollers are doing to our children and America? NYC is the largest city in the U.S. with 8.8 million people. LA is second largest with 3.9 million. Since he's been in office, the demented pedophile turd roller has imported 7 million freeloading illegal aliens into America. So which is the biggest epidemic tearing America apart? 7 million freeloaders or guns that don't kill people. People kill people. FJB and his Nazi gun grabbing egghead.
Wait, what? More "Gun Violence?" Unbelievable. When will President Biden arrest all the guns who are committing all the violence. You've got to throw the book at the guns, teach them a lesson, arrest the guns, try them in court, convict the guns, and then throw the guns in jail for at least 10 years. Then, the guns will finally get the message, so the guns will no longer roam the streets at night, committing all that violence and crime. C'mon, Biden, arrest the violent guns and throw them in jail for 10 years! (Problem solved!)
So is Kamala the equivalent of the no show university honorary professors hired for publicity but making one speech at the first class session and then handing the teaching over to a real educator?
George Clooney’s wife—Amal Clooney a guest lecturer at Columbia Law, where she participated in a human-rights course.
Angelina Jolie, Matthew McConaughey 2016 filmmaking class at UCLA was only required to be present at campus once as a professor, Oprah Winfrey in the fall of 2000, co-taught a Dynamics of Leadership course at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University with her longtime partner, Stedman Graham.

My only question for Kamala. Who took the bar for her?
Most likely she “BLEW” the entire bar!!
“...the left-wing Community Justice Action Fund.”
That sounds like a profitable grift outfit. Will this new gig pay better?
Good unanswered question.
Decades ago in an article about the trend of paying for papers and exams to be taken care of in return for money, a college student said “What I cannot understand is how some students just let themselves flunk out when all they have to do is cheat.”
I’m concerned about violent guns, too. All this time I thought they needed a human to operate them!
We need to dig deeper on this. Kamala lacks the basic skills. She cannot be that stupid. But apparently she is. Therefore, someone took the bar for her. Breitbart, New York Post, The Daily Mail needs to see if there’s something here.
Did Kamala actually pass the bar? Perhaps she only got her law school degree
Every state requires it except for Wisconsin.
Get the word out and October will break a record for gun sales. This administration has no credibility on gun control with Hunter Bidens as the poster boy
Hope somebody does this.
All bad news for Kamala is good news for a free America.
It would force Joe to dump Kamala.
“It’s not our guns—It’s your SONS”...

They need to be examined by Congress as an internal security threat.
The conservative “Trends on Organizations” newsletters had a lot on them. Check with The Heritage Foundation for their publications too.
12. Yes, she walked right by one, possibly named “Joe’s Place”.
