House Democrats Meet Behind Closed Doors To Discuss Legislation With Pres. Biden At least three members of the far-Left “Squad” on Tuesday night sat in their seats when President Joe Biden promised to fund the police and denounced the radical “defund the police” movement that once seemed mainstream in the Democratic Party.
“The American Rescue Plan provided $350 billion that cities, states and counties can use to hire more police, invest in more proven strategies,” Biden said Tuesday night, according to POLITICO.
“Proven strategies like community violence interruption, trusted messengers working the cycle of violence and trauma and giving young people hope,” he continued. “We should all agree: The answer is not to defund the police. The answer is to FUND the police with the resources and training they need to protect our communities.”
He then talked about stopping “gun trafficking.”
“And I will keep doing everything in my power to crack down on gun trafficking and ghost guns you can buy online and make at home — they have no serial numbers and can’t be traced,” Biden.
Washington Examiner reporter Emily Brooks said Left-wing Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Cori Bush (D-MO) stayed seated during the Biden comments, while most other Democrats stood up and cheered. Bush even reportedly shouted during that section of the speech.
“AOC, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush and some others do not stand for line about $350B to fund police in American Rescue Plan,” Brooks reported. “Cori Bush also does not stand for line about ‘the answer is not to defund the police.’ Shouts something and points to her shirt….” AOC, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush and some others do not stand for line about $350B to fund police in American Rescue Plan.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
