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.

Texas has raised over $55 million from private donations to secure border, build a wall

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
