It didn’t take long for America to react to the lunatics who want to shut down the police departments in their cities. Private truckers, who have kept America going for the last century and particularly throughout the Chinese virus crisis, are saying overwhelmingly that they will not deliver into cities that cut or eliminate their police departments. This follows after a mob in Minneapolis was seen on video pulling a trucker from his rig and beating him.
CD Life News, a truckers’ publication, reported:
As cities across the country are discussing defunding or disbanding their police departments, truck drivers are voicing concerns of safety. Seventy-seven percent of truck drivers say they will refuse to deliver freight to cities with defunded police departments.
Truck driving is historically ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. In 2018, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reported truck driving as the most deadly job in the country.
Truck drivers have spent the last year on the front line of a global pandemic and protests. Now many are fearful of what might happen if police departs disband or are defunded.
Truck drives have been voicing their concerns on the CDLLife App. After reading about their concerns, CDLLife posted a poll on the app.
We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”
To date, 77% of drivers say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.
Here are some of their responses:
“…if something was to happen and you have to take matters into your own hands, and then you risk being prosecuted for protecting yourself.”
“This is not an area you need to act fearless and think you you’d look like a fool for saying no…Imagine what kind of fool you look like for driving into a hot spot and putting your life in danger.”
“I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.”
“Simple. We may not like it all the time, but laws and order is necessary.”
“Most places we go already can be dicy an about only time you see a cop is when lights is on behind you.”
“For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.”
OK, so we know the deal, and this is just the beginning of the reaction. What are these cities going to do? How will they get their food? What other products won’t be delivered into the cities? (Answer: Most of them.) We know that tourists will stop visiting these cities, as the convention business has dropped off significantly in permissive, left-wing cities like Seattle and San Francisco. Minneapolis? Forget it. It’s gone. And it is a tragedy. It has had a reputation as one of the nicest cities in America for many decades. There will be no more conventions in Minneapolis if the police are cut.
Fortunately Nikitas3.com believes that these wackos like the anti-cop Seattle CHAZ occupiers are going to go the way of the ‘occupy Wall Street’ movement. They will quickly deteriorate into chaos and anarchy; reports are coming out that this is already happening. And if these cities disband or reduce their police departments, they too will descend into chaos long after the ‘occupiers’ are gone.
This is precisely what the relentless drift to hard-left socialism always produces. And the people in the cities will pay dearly.
Already Nikitas3.com is predicting a mass exodus from our cities of younger, white, educated, skilled and richer people in the wake of the virus lockdown and then the riots. This will leave behind a poorer, older, sicker, browner and blacker population, and worse and worse economies.
And wouldn’t you know it… the major Fake News marxist media (CNN, NPR, NBC, New York Times, etc.) are discussing de-funding police like it is a valid idea. This is typical. Under this system, the elites get their utopian dream (no police) while ‘the people’ pay a devastating price as we see “the people” in places like Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, China, etc. being destroyed by policies implemented by the elites.
Americans have been fleeing these urban hell-holes like New York and Chicago for decades and RUNNING to conservative states like Texas and Georgia. This includes tens of millions of liberals and Democrats.
Gee, isn’t liberalism supposed to attract us to its equality, peace and opportunity?
Of course… in theory. In practice it is the opposite. Meanwhile the leftists in the media are ignoring the fact that Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to shutting down police departments (85% in one poll) and that blacks are going to suffer most if police departments are reduced since a vast majority of the crime happens in black areas. You can just imagine what hispanics, legal and illegal, think. And muslims too. These people all live in poorer and high-crime areas and they are all scared to death of de-policing because most of them do not have the wealth to re-locate.
Inc.com reported in April 2019 about ultra-liberal Amazon:
Amazon will move thousands of jobs from Seattle to nearby Bellevue, Washington over the next four years. The news was announced via an email to employees this week. Not surprisingly it was quickly picked up by the local tech news site GeekWire, which received confirmation of the announcement from Amazon.
You would think that radical Amazon chief Jeff Bezos would be moving his operations into Seattle for its radical policies. But he knows the truth. He will not risk a penny of his own wealth on these increasingly militant and chaotic cities. He’s heading to the suburbs, but we can be sure that the Bezos-owed Washington Post is cheering the police de-funding movement.
At the same time, we are seeing increasing evidence that police themselves want to leave the cities. Tulsa, Oklahoma police major Travis Yates said that he is “extremely concerned” for the future of law enforcement after the backlash against cops following the riots and the rise of the de-fund the police movement.
Yates wrote on the website LawOfficer.com a commentary about cops headlined, ‘America, We Are Leaving’. He wrote:
“I wouldn’t wish this job on my worst enemy. I would never send anyone I cared about into the hell that this profession has become … I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them. It’s over, America. You finally did it You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.”
“Officers are afraid to speak out, they are afraid to talk. You are only your next call away from being canceled or destroyed, and so officers feel very limited. I think citizens do, too, and we had just as many citizens comment on that article and send us emails.”
Meanwhile a post on Facebook announced that a number of groups are planning to retake the Seattle CHAZ “occupation zone” on July 4th. The American Patriots post reads:
On July 4th, Independence Day, a coalition of patriot groups and all who want to join are going to retake the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone for America. Antifa members are illegally occupying public property and terrorizing small businesses in the neighborhood. American patriots have agreed to come together again, remove the barricades illegally obstructing traffic, and free the people in the zone.
We are not going to hurt anybody, break the law, etc. We are simply going to tear down the illegal barriers on public property, clean up the mess these communist kids made, and return the police station over to Seattle Police Department control.
*The staging area will be Seward Park. The parking lot can handle roughly 10,000 bikes easily.
The photo with the post shows men in Bikers for Trump T-shirts. This should be interesting. And if the rent-a-thugs in CHAZ Seattle think that they are going to stop these bikers, they had better think twice. But this takeover probably won’t even be necessary. These ‘occupiers’ probably will self-destruct long before the 4th of July. There already are reports of chaos and crime inside the CHAZ zone, just as saw with the ‘occupiers’ of 2011.
Fox News also reported about another city suffering in the anti-cop atmosphere:
Ten members of a police SWAT team in a South Florida city quit the unit this week, concerned about “today’s political climate” and its impact on their jobs, according to a report.
In a letter dated Tuesday, the officers in Hallandale Beach, Broward County, complained of being “minimally equipped, under trained and often times restrained” in performing their duties, Miami FOX station WSVN-TV reported.
The officers – who were leaving the SWAT unit but not resigning from the force — wrote that they were concerned that city officials were “placing the safety of dogs over the safety of team members.”
This is just the beginning, friends. Just the beginning.
Virus Lockdowns are Harming, Killing Millions of Americans
President Trump has said right from the beginning that we don’t want to make “the cure” for the Chinese virus – referring to lockdowns of whole towns, cities and states – worse that the virus itself.
But sure as heck, these lockdowns are badly harming or killing millions of people, which the media are refusing to report on. Here is just one example from Fox News:
The family of former Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot, said a shelter-in-place order to combat the coronavirus pandemic was an additional burden on her that was already compounded by loneliness.
Mattingly, 33, was found dead in her Austin, Texas, home in April. A Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office report obtained by TMZ said she put a handgun in her mouth and fired. She had opiates and benzodiazepines in her system at the time of her death, according to a toxicology report.
Nationwide lockdowns in the months since the virus took hold in the United States have contributed to loneliness and, in some cases, an increase in suicides, according to some health experts.
“Lockdowns kill. They kill the vulnerable, the lonely, the depressed, the unemployed, those who are trying to quit drugs and those who aren’t,” former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson tweeted in response to a New York Post story about Mattingly’s death.
Just think about tens of millions of people who have lost their jobs and even their businesses. Or who are alone and worried sick about the future. Why isn’t this considered as part of the toll of the virus?
Answer: Because reporting the truth about the lockdowns goes against everything that the Fake News media want you to believe. This is just like these ‘green’ fakers who don’t want you to know how much damage ‘green’ energy is doing to the environment, like windmills killing millions of birds, including rare eagles. Or windmills causing ‘climate change’ by slowing down the winds.
Millions of Americans have certainly suffered ill health effects from missing doctors’ appointments, cancer screenings and crucial treatments during the lockdowns.
Meanwhile the wearing of masks is hurting tens of millions of people. The masks reduce your oxygen supply; trap the carbon dioxide that is in your breath so that you breathe it back in and partially asphyxiate yourself with CO2; and they trap germs from inside your body that would be best expelled into the air.
Yet there are no media reports on any of this because these truths don’t fit the media narrative that Americans should live in fear and look like idiots wearing their masks. That is precisely why president Trump never wears a mask but most Democrats do.
These media rats have one goal and that is to undermine America, to make people live in fear. This is how liberalism always rules. Just look at how these ‘green’ lunatics want us to believe that the planet is burning up.
It is being reported that millions of young people all over the world are deeply depressed about ‘global warming’, which is just how the media want them in order to control them. Yet there is no evidence whatsoever that “warming” is happening in the way that they say it is, i.e., from burning oil and coal.
In fact we know for sure that solar panels themselves cause ‘global warming’ and here is the simple, observable proof. Think about a grassy rural meadow on a hot Summer day. You can walk across it without any problem. The sun’s heat is absorbed into the ground and dissipated.
But increasingly we see these meadows being covered with black solar panels. These panels absorb the sun’s heat and radiate it back into the atmosphere. This causes the atmosphere to heat up over the meadow, as it would not normally do. And this is the only “man-made global warming” source that we can prove is 100% real just by applying common sense and observation.
Note to ‘global warming’ fanatics: Southern Wyoming got 12 inches of snow on June 9. Calumet, Michigan got 25 FEET of snow in 2020.
