An entire North Carolina police department resigned Friday after a new town manager implemented what police officers said was dangerous policies that work against their department.

Police officers in the town of Kenly submitted their “mass-resignation letters citing stress, a hostile work environment and an inability to continue the department’s long-term betterment projects,” according to Fox News.

The culprit behind the massive resignations: Town Manager Justine Jones.

According to reports, Police Chief Josh Gibson “expressed regret toward the negative changes he felt were occurring in the department” and the concern that the town would be left without protection from a police force.

“In my 21 years at the Kenly Police Department, we have seen ups and downs. But, especially in the last 3 years, we have made substantial progress that we had hoped to continue. However, due to the hostile work environment now present in the Town of Kenly, I do not believe progress is possible,” wrote Gibson in a letter.

Neither the police department nor Jones has been willing to speak to the media on the nature of these complaints, local outlets report.

The town of Kenly won’t be the last to see such drastic moves by law enforcement officers. In fact, across the nation law enforcement officers have complained about failed leadership and their inability to do their jobs.

Lawmakers, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), who have called for defunding law enforcement agencies have been the impetus behind a wave of proposed anti-law enforcement policies across the nation.

    My Dad resigned from a city police force in 1969. They hired a new chief who did crazy things, like making them wear a daisy and calling them the “daisy patrol”, but when the new chief wanted them to give up their guns, that was enough for my Dad, who was the President of their FOP, and he & others resigned. The city has never come back from the failure of the 60’s and 70’s experimentations in local governments. My Dad went on to become a successful small business owner and we moved to the suburbs, leaving the failing city behind, like so many others. Good luck to these NC officers – hope they all find better jobs, doing what they love. Public Servants should be cherished, not treated like crap….

    Pelosi is going on a shopping spree. She was planning on one of these partying and shopping sprees when Trump pulled her military aircraft and pissed her off.
    She has no talents to achieve anything diplomatically or militarily. She has no business using US Taxpayer assets to facilitate this Farewell Tour!!!!

China Ratchets Up Propaganda as Pelosi Prepares to Visit Taiwan

While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi looks like she is moving forward with her planned visit to Taiwan, China is ratcheting up its propaganda war against Taiwan and the United States. Chinese government media is stating that Taiwan is part of China, China is prepared to use force over Taiwan, Chinese “countermeasures” to any visit by Pelosi will be severe, and the United States and Taiwan are the ones that are instigating conflict.

Chinese state-run media continues to claim that Taiwan is an integral part of the mainland. A Pelosi visit to Taiwan would “seriously harm China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” according to a spokesperson for China’s Ministry of National Defense, as cited by XinhuaNet. A Global Times article cited a professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as stating that Taiwan is an issue of “national reunification,” and “at the heart of China’s core interests.” Another Global Times article welcomed the possibility of China’s eventual intrusion into “the airspace above Taiwan” as “a legitimate and righteous move to manifest China’s sovereignty over the island.”

Chinese government media also claims that China is prepared to use force over Taiwan. A Global Times article cites the above professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as stating that “[r]eunification by force is the most effective way to prevent Taiwan secessionism.” Another Global Times article cites “an expert on US studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences,” as claiming that China threatened “the possibility of extremely drastic diplomatic and military measures against the US [if Pelosi visits Taiwan], and the US cannot afford to face such a response.”

Chinese state-run media further specifies this hypothetical use of force if Pelosi visits Taiwan. Pelosi’s visit would result in an “overwhelming response” that would result in “a game-changer for cross-Straits relations,” according to Global Times. Potential responses from China would include PLA aircraft escorting Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, “set[ting] a great precedent for the PLA to patrol above the island,” according to a Global Times article. Another Global Times article, citing a “Chinese military expert,” floated the idea of the Chinese military declaring Taiwan a PLA drill zone, and intercepting planes flying over Taiwan in the event that Pelosi visits Taiwan [meaning, establishing a “no-fly” zone]. This military expert further suggested that China’s PLA Rocket Force could similarly conduct “drills” targeting US ships.

And according to Chinese government media, it is the US and Taiwan that are at fault for the current crisis over Taiwan. According to China Daily, Pelosi’s visit would demonstrate that the US is “trying to seize the initiative to change the status quo across the Straits, and use the island as a launch pad for confrontation with China. Another China Daily article remarked that the potential for Pelosi’s visit shows that the “Taiwan question [is] being recklessly hijacked by Washington politicians” and that “[s]ome of the more hawkish US politicians have been unable to hide their glee that…[Pelosi’s visit] might lead to a military clash.”

Chinese state-run media is also asserting that the US and Taiwan are unprepared for any situation in the Taiwan Strait. The US is “semi-paralyzed and divided” and “politically weak,” according to Global Times. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who called for visiting Taiwan with Nancy Pelosi, is a “‘marginal figure’ with limited funding” and a “troublemaker,” according to Global Times. Taiwan’s recent Han Kuang military drills “are more of a show rather than anything of military significance,” according to a “Beijing-based military expert” as cited by Global Times.

Chinese government media continues to peddle an anti-US and anti-Taiwan narrative. With this narrative, China hopes to justify, for domestic and international consumption, an attempted confrontation or invasion of Taiwan. As the global supply chain, semi-conductors, and peace in the Pacific hang in the balance, the Biden administration needs to counter Chinese aggression in both word and deed.
