On Tuesday, radical leftist monsters who happen to be members of Congress proposed federal legislation to defund police and set up reparations for people who either are black or were harmed by police.
“We can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety — a new vision for public safety, one that protects and affirms black lives,” Tlaib said.
Pressley was unable to talk on the Zoom call resulting from technical difficulties, more likely being an omen, and her office didn’t immediately put out a statement. Just a side note question. What is it with Democrats and technology? Joe Biden’s people can’t get him to do a virtual announcement without all kinds of technical issues, and now this. Like everything else they probably never thought to test it before implementing it live. It’s that same attitude that’s produced other horrible legislation that has done more harm than good.
Tlaib and Pressley are half of the radical leftist “Squad” of America-hating freshman House members. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D_NY) (AOC) and known anti-Semite bigoted Ilhan Omar (D_MN), the other half of the Four Morons of the Apocalypse, weren’t announced as bill backers.
The BREATHE Act will not pass the Democrat-controlled House, because lucky for us there are still enough sane members who understand the horror show such a bill would create, even though the House approved a police reform bill back in June in response to the murder of George Floyd by Minnesota police in a Democrat-run city, inside a Democrat-run state.
Many Democratic leaders don’t support defunding police and the recently passed bill came under fire from House conservatives for not curbing the power of police unions that protect bad officers from being fired.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently stated it was a “local decision” to reallocate police funds, and President Trump has decried the idea as ludicrous while it picks up steam in cities from Minneapolis to New York, all blue and all run by nuts. But don’t forget that Pelosi originally said they shouldn’t impeach Trump until the Republicans were on board and the American people agreed, and the Squad got loud enough to get Pelosi to change her mind. It was either that, or Pelosi was lying about having restraint all along. I believe it was the latter, and I believe that’s what she’s doing right now.
The BREATHE Act, published online, says it will slash federal dollars from local police along with federal agencies, and spend the money on social welfare, health care, education, and environmental programs.
This is just plain crazy. So, when your home is broken into by thieves hell-bent not only on stealing your belongings but on harming you, your spouse and children, which benefactor of police funds will come to protect you? A social worker? A nurse? A tree hugger?
The bill also dictates that it will “Eliminate federal programs and agencies used to finance and expand the U.S. criminal-legal system, such as the Department of Defense 1033 [surplus equipment] program, the Edward Byrne-Justice Assistance Grant Program, Community Oriented Policing Services, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
The bill has far-reaching demands. It would abolish “the use of electronic monitoring, including ankle monitors” and make “recommendations to dramatically reduce the Department of Defense budget.”
Screw locks. Why don’t we all just leave our front doors open every night and play the odds? The Democrats don’t want you to own a gun to protect yourself, and they don’t want you to have police to protect you. They don’t want to stop crime, they want open borders, and most of all, they want to complete dominating control over every aspect of your life. These people are dangerous.
Isn’t it telling that progressive radical want to defund police, with all the horrible consequences that would come from that, but the one thing they never mention when talking about what to do with the money, is to give it back to the American taxpayers who foot the bills? These greedy little radicals think that money is theirs. The money currently there to fund police was allocated by legislation to pay for police. Therefore, any bill that means to remove any of the funding that was already allocated for police would be an ex post facto law, and that’s unconstitutional.
Article I, Section 9, Clause 3:
No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.
Ex post factor means a retroactive effect or charging someone for something they did in the past that wasn’t illegal until they created the new law.
It could supply a 50 percent federal match of native financial savings from shutting down jails and prisons, and would incentivize states to close down “gang databases.”
The legislation has two reparations components. It includes the Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), which has 135 pandering Democratic co-sponsors. And it proposes a separate reparations program in honor of Michael Brown of Ferguson, Mo., who died in a 2014 altercation with a police officer.
Again, that’s just plain crazy. Michael Brown robbed a store, assaulted a store clerk, then punched a police officer through the window of his cruiser, and tried to take the officer’s gun. What do you think he was going to do with the officer’s gun if he got it?
To even hint at giving reparations for a criminal like that boggles the mind, cheapens any sincere discussions about reparations, and it goes to show that these Democrats are not serious people. They are radical ideologues.
I believe the Michael Brown addition to the bill was a racist attempt at pointing the finger at anyone who disagreed with it. In other words, they care less about reparations for family members of Michael Brown than they do for using the issue as a political weapon.

I don’t expect this bill to pass, but I also don’t expect it to go away completely. Folks, you have to vote on November 3rd. You have the power to get rid of these radical crazies. If the Democrats take over in November, the country will burn to the ground and everything you love about it will vanish. Mark my words, that’s their goal.
