Mitch McConnell Drops The Hammer on Far Left’s ‘Defunding’ Plan

OUCH!

Published

Over the course of the last year, Americans have been having a fairly tough conversation about the way law enforcement operates in our country, and how best to move forward as a just and equal nation.

There are bad apples among those who truly do serve and protect, and the widespread use of camera phones and social media have brought a number of incidents to light that otherwise would not have been seen.  For some, this is precisely the sort of tool that was needed to root out those who are unfit to wear the badge.

But some on the far left have taken this too far, and are now demanding that we “defund the police”, either entirely, or radically, at the very least.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) blasted Democrats on Tuesday during an event in Owensboro, Kentucky, calling their far-left idea of defunding the police “one of the dumbest ideas.”

During the federal anti-drug program gathering, he thanked the law enforcement officers who were present for their hard work. He started by saying, “it’s been a tougher for law enforcement,” which is why he wanted to make it very clear he is “a strong supporter of law enforcement across America.”

“I think the abuse that’s been heaped on law enforcement over the last year is unfortunate,” McConnell explained.

This is why the Minority leader “think[s] defunding the police has got to be one of the dumbest ideas ever surfaced by anyone in our country. And we need what you’re doing.”

McConnell doubled down later, stating that he hopes advocates for defunding the police “sober up” in the coming months.

Biden Publicly Urged to Take Cognitive Test by Former White House Doc and Over a Dozen Lawmakers

This is getting serious.

Joe Biden is no spring chicken, that’s a fact, and there have been a great many concerns about the septuagenarian’s health in recent weeks. While Biden does appear to be, (mostly), physically fit, it is his mental health that has long been in question.  He’s a gaffe machine, of course, and the President himself doesn’t seem to hide from that reality much. But there are now some well-educated folks close to the situation who are sounding the alarm about his memory, and doing so very publicly. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician, called on President Biden to immediately undergo a cognitive test so the commander-in-chief can prove to the American public sound mental capabilities. “We can’t sit on this any longer,” Jackson told “Hannity” Thursday night, citing Biden’s “embarrassing” performance overseas this week with world leaders. “He’s not physically or cognitively fit to be our president right now,” Jackson added. And it’s not just Jackson. The freshman Texas congressman and 13 of his GOP colleagues sent a letter to Biden Thursday expressing “concern” with his cognitive state and cited several examples of potential memory lapses, including apparently forgetting the name of his Defense Secretary, telling an Amtrak story with a timeline that didn’t add up and seemingly blanking on the often-quoted first line of the Declaration of Independence. “Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past 18 months,” Jackson and the GOP reps wrote in a letter to Biden, the White House physician and Dr. Anthony Fauci. The left will likely write this off as a stunt, but they do so at their own peril.

Ted was LIVID!

If one of your first tasks at your new job was to figure out why the printer wasn’t working, the first thing you would do is visually inspect the printer to see what needs doing. Vice President Kamala Harris, when tasked with the job of cleaning up the heartbreaking humanitarian crisis at our southern border, decided that she would get to work on “climate change”, citing it as one of the “root causes” of illegal immigration. And, to add insult to injury, the Vice President hasn’t even visited the border to see what’s wrong. In our office job metaphor, this would be like turning down the thermostat to see if that made the printer work. Texas Senator Ted Cruz lashed out at the VP over her negligence this week, saying the following: “It is a complete and total abdication by the federal government. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are quite simply not doing their job. They’re refusing to enforce the law and they’ve created an unmitigated crisis at the border. “A couple of months ago, I took 19 senators down to the border to see firsthand what was happening. And I’ve been to the border many, many times. It is worse than it has ever been. “We had just last month over 180,000 people cross illegally last month. We’re on pace for 2 million people to cross illegally. And Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have zero intention of doing anything.” And then… “That’s why they won’t go to the border. Kamala, at this point, it’s almost like a comedy show. She’s so terrified. You know, it reminds me of that old show, ‘Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?’ She’ll go everywhere except the border because she’s afraid of what’s going on down there, and they have no solutions. ” It has…
