NYC Protesters Camps Out Front Of City Hall, Demands $1B Cut To Law Enforcement Budget

Published

on

Protesters in New York City continue to camp out front of city hall, now demanding the city make a staggering $1 billion cut to the police force budget and reroute the funds to social programs.

It doesn’t take some sort of political genius to see why this is a horrible, horrible idea. The crime in NYC isn’t going to slow down to match with the police force in the city once these budget cuts take effect and there are less officers out on the streets to help keep people safe and the criminals at bay.

Things might seem bad already, but they could be a lot worse, and unfortunately, if the city government capitulates to the demands of these protesters, they’ll discover this first hand.

The group of about 100 protesters, calling themselves “Occupy City Hall,” gathered at a nearby park around 5 p.m. Tuesday and haven’t left. They have vowed to stay until their demand to slash one-sixth of the New York Police Department’s $6 billion budget is met.

The protesters say the money saved should be redistributed to social and community services as well as health care and education.

The city has until the end of the month to finalize the budget, which includes money set aside for the police department.

“Mayor (Bill) de Blasio has thus far rejected this demand, which is unconscionable,” VOCAL-NY, the group organizing the protest, said in a written statement. “We have questions about City Council promises to support our demands, because we have not seen their plan outside of a vague press release. We view this lack of transparency and specific public commitments as a red flag.”

One of the protesters, Charles Khan, said that he is “fighting for a drastic change to the way that this city says that it’s providing safety but hasn’t provided safety.”

He went on to say, “Strong communities make safe communities, and police don’t, and so that’s what we’re fight for.”

Notice the lack of explanation for what makes a strong community. These folks have all kinds of platitudes that sound good to the ear, but when it comes to actually coming up with practical solutions to the problems facing folks in their neighborhoods, they have nothing to offer.

Here’s to hoping the city government in New York stands strong and does the right thing.

Save conservative media!

Biden’s Plan Would Tax AR-15 Owners $200, Ban New Sales of All AR-15’s and Other Guns

Libs, man.

If they’re not peddling lies or pushing racial division, Democrats are looking to tax law-abiding Americans to the point where it almost doesn’t make sense to earn above a certain amount of money. Why don’t people like Joe understand that lower taxes are an incentive for people to work harder, not to mention that they keep people employed (considering businesses won’t have to fire workers or cut back on hours)!? Libs, man. Just the worst. From Washington Free Beacon: At least 20 million rifles and 150 million ammunition magazines would be caught up in the sales ban and registration scheme Biden touted on the campaign trail, according to a National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) report. The new taxes would cost Americans more than $34 billion, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. […] Biden wants to ban new sales of AR-15 rifles and similar firearms as well as any ammunition magazine holding more than 10 rounds—sizes that come standard on most modern rifles and handguns. He would pay some owners to surrender the affected guns they legally own and force everyone else to register the guns under the National Firearms Act. The proposal would require owners to pay a $200 tax stamp for each item. The report said the kinds of rifles Biden wants to ban made up nearly half of all rifles produced in 2018. Oliva said the group’s estimates may actually be undercounts. While NSSF used the latest Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives manufacturer reports, those only cover up to 2018, and Oliva said AR-15s have continued to grow in popularity since then. Kalama Harris apparently doesn’t know that the “Medicare for All” bill she co-sponsored would eliminate private health insurance.

Smoking Gun? Dr. Robert Epstein Reveals How Social Media Giant Manipulated Voters

Just like they did for Hillary?

Dr. Robert Epstein appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday evening. He dropped what he believes is a bombshell about voter manipulation in the 2020 election. Something to keep in mind is that Epstein is a Democrat. He voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From Right Scoop: One of the biggest things Epstein exposed on the show, which he believes is a smoking gun, was that his team found that Google was only showing a voting reminder on their homepage to liberals and not conservatives for a period of days. His team, which consisted of 733 field agents in the swing states of Arizona, North Carolina and Florida, was collecting data on Google and other social media companies before the election and when they found this, they went public with their data. He said almost immediately Google ceased their partisan vote reminder and began showing it to everyone for the four days leading up to the election.

But that doesn’t make it right. Congressional Republicans need to take a stand. At the end of the day, Americans don’t need to worry about a foreign government interfering in an election. They just need to look at American social media giants.
