Democrat Infested Virginia Pushing Law Discounting Attacks on Police, Firemen, and Paramedics

The Democrat-controlled legislature of Virginia is pushing a law that would reduce penalties on assaults against cops, firemen, and paramedics.

The Democrat-controlled legislature of Virginia is pushing a law that would reduce penalties on assaults against cops, firemen, and paramedics making the attacks a mere misdemeanor.

Current state law requires mandatory jail time for people who physically assault first responders. And that is as it should be. We can’t turn our heads as our first responders get harmed just for doing their jobs.

But Democrats don’t feel that way. Democrats don’t think that harming cops, fire fighters, and paramedics is a bad thing.

Here is the summary of Senate Bill 5032:

Trending: U-Haul Seen Packed with Weapons Was Traced to George Soros Group

Eliminates the mandatory minimum term of confinement for an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury.

The bill removes mandatory minimum 6-month jail sentence for assaulting a police officer.

U.S. Senator Ton Cotton was outraged by the Virginia Democrats’ bill.

Cotton jumped to Twitter to excoriate the state legislature.

“This is unhinged,” Cotton tweeted.

“The Democrat Virginia Senate has passed a bill that would dramatically reduce penalties for assaulting a police officer,” he continued.

“Liberal politicians are endangering police officers and fueling the riots in our streets,” he wrote.

“And it’s not just the police. The bill reduces penalties for assaults against judges, firefighters, EMS personnel, and more!” he said.

“Democrats want to declare open season on public servants,” he concluded.

Cotton is right. This bill is an outrage.

Democrats Prepare Bill Limiting U.S. Supreme Court Justice Terms

Next week House Democrats will introduce a bill to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments.

“It would save the country a lot of agony and help lower the temperature over fights for the court that go to the fault lines of cultural issues and is one of the primary things tearing at our social fabric,” said California U.S. Representative Ro Khanna, who plans to introduce the legislation on Tuesday, along with Representatives Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts and Don Beyer of Virginia.

OAN:

Democrats in of the House of Representatives will introduce a bill next week to limit the tenure of U.S. Supreme Court justices to 18 years from current lifetime appointments, in a bid to reduce partisan warring over vacancies and preserve the court’s legitimacy.

The new bill, seen by Reuters, would allow every president to nominate two justices per four-year term and comes amid heightened political tensions as Republican President Donald Trump prepares to announce his third pick for the Supreme Court after the death on Sept. 18 of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with just 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.

[…]

Partly due to rising life expectancies, justices serve increasingly long tenures, on average now more than 25 years. More

They can prepare this all they want. It will never go anywhere. How about passing a bill for term limits for House and Senate? That would be a great step towards cleaning up the swamp.

Seattle City Council Overrides Mayor Durkan, Cuts Up To 100 Officers From Police Force

Seattle City Council Overrides Mayor Durkan, Cuts Up To 100 Officers From Police Force

The Seattle City Council voted to override Mayor Jenny Durkan’s vetoes of police and public-safety changes to the 2020 budget.

TDW:

The Seattle City Council overrode a mayoral veto and pushed through reductions to police funding that will cut dozens of officer positions from the force.

The council decided during a special session on Tuesday to override Democratic Mayor Jenny Durkan, who originally vetoed the legislation shortly after it was passed in early August. The initial cuts will amount to about $3 million, less than 1% of the police department’s roughly $400 million annual budget, according to The Seattle Times.

Council members described the cuts as a “down payment” on future action to defund police and reinvest the money in social programs. In July, seven of the council’s nine members came out in support of cutting the Seattle Police Department’s funding in half, a move that would likely defund an estimated 1,000 positions at the department.

The $3 million cut, which will take effect as soon as possible, will cut up to 100 officer positions from the police force, including 32 patrol officers. The Seattle Police Department’s navigation team, made up of police and social workers who monitor and aid the city’s homeless, will be disbanded. The legislation will also cap officers’ pay, except for the chief’s, at $150,000, according to My Northwest. More

Call me crazy, but isn’t this the same kind of thing that the city government did in Minneapolis that resulted in notable increases in violent crime? I guess some people aren’t very observant and would prefer to learn the hard way. They are playing a dangerous game.

Florida: Bloomberg Raised $16 Million So Felons Could Vote

Desperate Democrats!

Published

By

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has reportedly amassed more than $16 million in a fundraising push in an effort to help convicted felons in Florida register to vote.

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” a Bloomberg spokesperson told the news outlet. “Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it.”

The Florida Rights Restoration Coalition estimated Bloomberg’s fundraising push has already paid off monetary obligations for 32,000 felons, Axios reported.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has raised over $16 million to help felons pay outstanding fines and fees to regain their voting rights in Florida.

The big picture: A 2018 state constitutional amendment in Florida allows for felons who have completed their sentences to regain their right to vote — so long as they’ve also paid back any outstanding fines, fees or restitution.

  • Bloomberg’s fundraising, in addition to $5 million from the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, has now paid off monetary obligations for 32,000 felons in Florida just before Election Day.
  • Voters who were already registered to vote, Black or Latino, and had fines and fees of less than $1500 were eligible for the payback initiative.  More

Talk about buying votes! Is this even legal?

Has Bloomberg figured out how many more Florida Cubans will vote for Trump as a result of what he just did?

Study Finds Hundreds Of Violent Demonstrations In Just Three Months

Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday. Her death brought with it a huge political discord as Democrats are demanding she not be replaced until after the election or else there will be more violent riots.

TDW:

Left-wing media figures rushed to threaten violent riots on Friday evening if President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) attempt to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away earlier in the day.

Reza Aslan, who used to have a show on CNN, responded by writing: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down.”

Political writer Laura Bassett echoed a similar sentiment, but stopped short of making a threat, writing: “If McConnell jams someone through, which he will, there will be riots. … *more, bigger riots.” More

It doesn’t matter who President Trump nominates because violence is their only recourse at this point.

Violent protests following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg have already started:
