  • Seattle’s Best Resigns The city’s first black police chief is out—thanks to progressives.

    On Monday Carmen Best shocked Seattle by resigning as police chief. It was her last act of public service, coming hours after the City Council voted 7-1 to cut money and jobs from its police force—which members make clear is only a first step in dismantling local law enforcement. In the post-George Floyd era, Seattle might have counted itself lucky to have a police force led by the city’s first black chief, a 28-year veteran of the force. From the beginning of the unrest she has been one of the city’s rare voices of reason, opposing, for example, the city’s...

    Describing the current assault on law enforcement as a spiritual battle between good and evil, former national security adviser Michael Flynn is urging Christians not only to pray but to take action. "When the destiny of the United States is at stake, and it is, the very future of the entire world is threatened," Flynn wrote in a guest column published exclusively by the Western Journal.

    <p>The leftists have had their way in Seattle for awhile.</p> <p>They let the Seattle autonomous zone fester for two months with the mayor calling it a “block party” and “summer of love” until four were shot, two were killed and the radicals marched on the mayor’s home. They even marched on the home of council members. They care so much about black lives, they even marched on the home of their first female black police chief, Carmen Best, but the neighbors came to her defense blocking them from getting there.</p>

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo slammed the New York City Council’s move strip the New York Police Department of $1 billion in funding, questioning “what it means” and calling for concrete action. “I don’t know what it means,” Cuomo said during a press briefing Wednesday. “What does that mean? Does this mean I am less safe? Where did you take the billion dollars from? Does it mean I am more safe? Does it have any effect on police abuse? I don’t know what it means.”

  • Questions Remain After Investigators Say ‘Poisoning’ of NYPD by Shake Shack Milkshakes Was Accidental

    ...Who left the cleaner in the milkshake machine and how does anyone know it was an accident? Just as the PBA perhaps jumped the gun in saying it was intentional, announcing no criminality within hours seems dubious as well.Apparently, only these officers were poisoned by whatever the substance was. Why were more customers not affected? It’s possible only these three officers were getting shakes at a Shake Shack in a place as busy as New York, but that seems unlikely. Further, who’s getting fired? People that end up poisoned from fast food usually have grounds for a lawsuit. Employees that...

    Former NYPD police officer and Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday as Democrats and Republicans work to find common ground on police reform. During his remarks, Bongino gave voice to law enforcement officers who risk their lives every day to protect their communities. "I spoke at an event for police officers years ago and the spouse of one of these heroes said this. She said, 'The most wonderful sound in the world for the spouse of a police officer is the sound of velcro at night." You may be saying, 'Why velcro?' Because it's how a...

    On The View Tuesday, the liberal hosts began the show trying to clear up what Democrats really mean when they say, “defund the police,” even as Democrats and left-wing activists use the term interchangeably to mean defund and abolish. Co-host Joy Behar somehow found a way to blame the right for “weaponizing” and “distorting” the Democrats’ sloppy messaging.--- Hostin downplayed the left's calls to “abolish” the police and insisted that it is a “big misunderstanding” that “people think that defunding the police means abolishing the police. That's not true.”

    Camden dissolved its police department to root out corruption. The city's crime rate was among the worst in the US. Within nine square miles and among nearly 75,000 residents, there were over 170 open-air drug markets reported in 2013, county officials told CNN. Violent crime abounded. Police corruption was at the core. Lawsuits filed against the department uncovered that officers routinely planted evidence on suspects, fabricated reports and committed perjury. After the corruption was exposed, courts overturned the convictions of 88 people, the ACLU reported in 2013. So in 2012, officials voted to completely disband the department -- it was...

    Most Americans believe we are all G-d’s children and want to solve racial issues lovingly, peacefully and constructively; not with hate, violence, and destruction. However, for Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and most peaceful protesters, the antidote to racism is to “dismantle the mechanisms of white supremacy.” To improve “the system” we must destroy “the system” because it is inherently racist. They foment chaos by destroying property and infrastructure, terrorize the population into compliance, annihilate the criminal justice system, and abolish the police. After the racist systems and infrastructure have been toppled, what happens to “[e]ven the most liberal, well-intentioned white...

    Why exactly does Obama want the “Strong Cities Network”? The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere. The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency. Ominously, President Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch unveiled the Strong Cities Network last week at the United Nations. America’s chief executive, who speaks in hushed and reverent...

    Just two weeks after it announced a plan to globalize local police departments through the “Strong Cities Network,” the Obama administration has added a new tool in its fight against “violent extremism.” A new position within the Justice Department – yet to be filled – will focus on investigating lone-wolf domestic terrorists or “extremists.” The person who heads this new effort will target extremists who plan mass shootings, hold racist, bigoted or anti-government views or see themselves as “sovereign citizens.” The new position at the Justice Department, dubbed the “domestic terrorism counsel,” will serve as the main point of contact...

    The family of George Floyd, the black man killed while in police custody in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, has sent a letter to the globalist United Nations to ask for its help in disarming police officers in the United States of America. The family’s legal team facilitated the letter, which was sent on Wednesday, according to NBC News: The group sent a letter on June 3 to one of the international body’s working groups asking for support for the end of the provision of military equipment and military-type training for police, the teaching of deescalation techniques, independent prosecutions and autopsies...

    A United Nations human rights expert is recommending changes in the way protests are handled in the United States, saying the process of issuing permits for demonstrations is “arbitrary” and could easily lead to discrimination against certain groups. Maina Kiai of Kenya, U.N. special rapporteur on freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, offered preliminary findings Wednesday from his visits this month to seven U.S. cities — including the sites of this year’s Democratic and Republican political conventions — to investigate how the U.S. upholds its citizens’ rights of assembly and association. Kiai’s full report to the United Nations will...
