With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Washington, DC – U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland told a virtual conference of the International Association of Police Chiefs (IAPC) on Monday that he was launching new rules governing the monitors charged with overseeing police reforms in specific jurisdictions.
Garland quickly established himself as an aggressive enforcer of police reforms after he was appointed by President Joe Biden and has launched “pattern or practice” investigations so far in the Minneapolis, Phoenix, and Louisville police departments, The Washington Post reported.
The attorney general said the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) had completed a four-month review of the monitoring teams who were being assigned to oversee changes at local levels and assessed the effectiveness and what they were costing the local jurisdictions. Monitoring teams have typically billed local taxpayers between $1 million and $2 million annually, and some monitors have served on teams in more than one city at the same time, The Washington Post reported.
He said there have been concerns about conflict of interest in those cases. If monitors draw out the process for longer, they get paid more money.
“It is also no secret that the monitorships associated with some of those settlements have led to frustrations and concerns within the law enforcement community. We hear you, and we take those concerns seriously,” Garland told the police chiefs at the virtual conference.
The attorney general said that going forward, “monitors must be incentivized to efficiently bring consent decrees to an end. Change takes time, but a consent decree cannot last forever,” The Washington Post reported.
Federal consent decrees have been widely criticized as expensive and ineffective in the past.
The new rules – crafted by U.S. Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta and released in a nine-page document – said that going forward, monitoring teams would be given term limits before they were hired and would be subject to periodic performance reviews conducted by the federal judge in charge of the settlement, The Washington Post reported.
The judge could make changes to the arrangements if they weren’t satisfied with the progress, according to the DOJ.The memo said that in order for the monitor to continue after the […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
