The Biden Administration and the mainstream media continue pushing the United States towards war with Russia. The world hangs in the balance as potential nuclear conflict inches closer and closer over the nation of Ukraine.
While global violence looms, there has been an ongoing war on the streets of America for over a decade. Law enforcement across the country has been under attack since the Obama Administration and is intensifying under the Biden Administration.
The Democrats and the mainstream media say there is no war on cops. They claim it is a scare tactic created by Right-wing extremists and Republicans. Groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa claim there is no war on cops and that the police are at war with black, brown, and poor people.
The last six days have proven the Democrats and their attack dogs wrong. There have been 13 police officers shot in the line of duty since Monday, October 10th resulting in the deaths of 5 officers. The shootings have occurred across the country from Connecticut to Nevada.
Three officers were lured to a house on Wednesday in Bristol, Connecticut, on a fake report of a domestic violence situation. The suspect and his brother ambushed the officer as soon as they arrived. They opened fire upon the officers as soon as they exited their vehicles.
Sgt. Dustin DeMonte, 35, and Officer Alex Hamzy, 34, were identified as the officers killed Wednesday night. Officer Alec Iurato, 26, was wounded and underwent surgery at a hospital in Hartford. He has since been released. Sgt. DeMonte’s wife is now alone to give birth to their third child.
Everyone believes the war on police began with the in-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in 2020. The incident inflamed the war on cops but it did not start there. It began under President Obama but, the roots run deep with connections to the George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
For decades, the Democrats have sought to create a nationalized police force but Constitutional restrictions have made it difficult to accomplish. President Obama gained more momentum toward this goal than any other President.
Once the departments accept the funding money offered by the Federal Government, they become beholden to the rules and regulations set forth by the Government. It is a quid pro quo.
The police adhere to things such as The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, known as CALEA. The organization sets the national standards and policies police departments must follow. In exchange, they get benefits such as lawsuit protection and grant money.
During the Obama administration, the United Nations pushed Obama to nationalize the police. United Nations publicly endorsed the Obama administration’s illegal efforts to federalize America’s local police departments. Soro’s foundation funded the movement.
In 2014, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the Task Force on 21st-Century Policing. The Task Force seeks to identify practices and make recommendations to the President, on how policing practices can promote effective crime reduction while building public trust.
In 2014, a total, of 126 officers were killed 2014. That’s a 24 percent increase from 2013 when 102 officers were killed. According to the report, the number of police officers killed by firearms also rose by 56 percent.
Coincidentally, each year between 2014 to 2019 saw an increase in line-of-duty deaths for law enforcement across this country. 2014 had a total of 157. In 2018, there was a total of 184. 2019 saw a slight reduction in deaths totaling 149.
The one-year reduction didn’t last long. In 2020 the total rose to 373 and then 472 in 2021. The number of deaths is bad enough, but the number of shootings has increased to numbers not seen since 1973.
The National Fraternal Order of Police, the world’s largest organization of law enforcement officers, on Wednesday reported a record number of police officers shot and killed in 2021. The FOP recorded 314 officers shot in the line of duty as of December 2021.
Numbers are numbers. They indicate threats against Law Enforcement are at an all-time high. You don’t need numbers to see what is going on. Daily, you see attacks against police officers across this country. You also see the media attack them every chance they get.
For the first time, police departments across the country can’t find people to apply for their openings. In the mid-nineties, you had to fight 250 people for two spots. Now, nobody is applying. If the Thin Blue Line breaks, God help us all.
Make no mistake about it. The men and women who wear the badge, are fighting for their lives out there. They fight against more than just the “bad guys”. They are fighting political and social forces that are far more powerful than they are. They know this. Yet, they clip that badge on anyway. Thank God!
