Minnesota Voters Reject Rep. Omar Backed Measure to Abolish Police Department

Minnesota’s Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison are licking their wounds after an incredibly progressive ballot measure to rid the city of its police force was rejected by voters.

56% of Minnesota voters rejected the amendment which called to replace the city’s police department with a “Department of Public Safety.” The department would not be required to employ police officers at all. Rather, social workers, healthcare workers, violence interrupters and specialized individuals who are trained to work with addiction, mental health crises and homelessness would make up the department.

On October 26, ‘Squad’ member Rep. Omar tweeted her support of the measure writing, “The election next week in Minneapolis is no less than a fight of hope vs. fear, of maintaining a broken status quo that killed George Floyd or taking the path of reform. Let’s remember what got us here: the Minneapolis Police Department killed a man, George Floyd, in broad daylight.”

Minneapolis’ liberal city council voted to dismantle its police department in June; it also approved a measure to cut the police budget. Over the last year, violent crime has surged in the city. Local ABC affiliate KSTP-TV reported in 2021, gun-related injuries have surged 26%, homicides have increased 16%, robberies have ticked up 5% and aggravated assaults spiked nearly 3% year-over-year.

National Review reports that “the ballot initiative was pushed by Yes 4 Minneapolis, a coalition of more than 50 liberal and leftist groups, including racial justice and black-liberation organizations, labor unions, advocates for sex workers and the homeless, the American Civil Liberties Union, a young Democrats group, and at least two local socialist organizations.”

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune rejected the progressive ballot measure and urged residents to vote down the initiative. The media outlet wrote it provides “simply no plan for public safety in Minnesota’s largest city.”

      Hopefully the 2022 midterms will see her butt go away! Soooo sick of her and her nonsense to change this country! If she doesn’t like it here, go back home! Gotta love that these idiots come here to our country and want to make it just like the ass-backwards country they just left! Stay there if you love it so much! NO muslims should be in our government here. I’m sorry, their ideology and ways of handling things are definitely NOT one we want here!

    I wish they would have voted the police out. Then after all the killings and other crimes jumped by about 200% let’s see who they blamed then.

    With the percentage of police fatalities in the line of work is equivalent for erroneous deaths police are related to. The rise in crime is purely factual evidence that diminishing policy and force is at large a social detriment to society where ever the diminishing occurs.

    These progressives live in a fantasy world of idealism and not reality that is the real threat and fear American’s need to be aware of presently.

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
