You can keep your local police if you want, promise! I KNEW this was coming!
President Barack Obama today introduced his plan for a progressive takeover of state and local policing.
“We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations,” he said Monday.
“We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come,” Obama said, as he touted a new interim report from his Task Force on 21st Century Policing.
Obama also instructed his media allies to help a federalization of policing, and to sideline critics of centralized policing rules. “I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it.”
Obama is using the crisis sparked by the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, who was killed after assaulting a shopkeeper and a policeman in Ferguson, Mo. Obama and his deputies stoked the subsequent controversy in the run-up to the 2014 election, in the hope of boosting African-American turnout. The mobilization effort failed, partly because local law-enforcement officials released a video showing Brown’s strong-arm robbery of a store shortly before the fatal shooting.
Now Obama is trying to expand progressive control by attaching more conditions to federal funding of state and local law-enforcement efforts. “We can expand the [federally-funded] COPS program… to see if we can get more incentives for local communities to apply some of the best practices and lessons that are embodied in this report,” he said.
Those best practices likely will eventually include rules that restrict police investigations of groups that are part of the Democratic coalition, and rules that try to level convictions and penalties among various sub-groups of the United Stats, regardless of actual conviction rates.
“I think communities [with police forces] across the board are going to need to consider… recommendations around prohibiting racial profiling [and] that’s a step that we’ve already taken at the federal level,” Obama said.
The report also calls for government to collect more data about state and local policing. That data will help federal officials impose new rules. “We need more information to find out how to take to scale best practices when it comes to training so that police officers are able to work in a way that reduces the possibilities of bias,“ Obama said.
State and local policing may need to be subordinated to federal social policy, Obama suggested. “Our approach to our drug laws, for example, and criminalization of nonviolent offenses rather than taking more of a public health approach — that may be something that has an impact in eroding trust between law enforcement and communities.”
Those political goals are echoed in the tasks force’s interim report.
“Law enforcement agencies should acknowledge the role of policing in past and present injustice and discrimination and how it is a hurdle to the promotion of community trust,” the report says. “The Federal Government, as well as state and local agencies, should encourage and incentivize higher education for law enforcement officers.”
Other recommendations include “Law enforcement agencies should engage community members in the training process…. [government] should ensure that basic recruit and in-service officer training include curriculum on the disease of addiction… Law enforcement agencies should implement training for officers that covers policies for interactions with the LGBTQ population, including issues such as determining gender identity for arrest placement, the Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities, and immigrant or non-English speaking groups, as well as reinforcing policies for the prevention of sexual misconduct and harassment..”
Obama’s strategy matches the progressive playbook, which continuously expands progressives’ power by gradually adding more conditions to federal aid. That same strategy is implemented in education via the “Common Core” education plan, in the health-sector via Obamacare, in the banking industry via the mortgage rules that caused the damaging property bubble and in housing via Obama’s “regionalism” plan.
That’s strategically different from prior Democratic administrations, which cited poverty as a justification for expanding federal aid. The unemployment rate for African-Americans in Ferguson is roughly 16 percent.
In his Monday statement, Obama did not mention unemployment.
Obama hinted that his plan to centralize policing rules is likely to face widespread opposition. “Law enforcement is largely a local function as opposed to a federal function…A lot of our work is going to involve local police chiefs, local elected officials, states recognizing that the moment is now for us to make these changes.”
Obama pushed the media to aid his takeover.
“Often we see an event that’s flashy; it makes the news; people are crying out for solutions. And by the time recommendations are put forward, our focus has moved on and we don’t actually see and pay attention to the concrete ways that we can improve the situation,” he said.
“There’s some good answers to be had if we don’t make this a political football or sensationalize it, but rather really focus on getting the job done,” he told the media. “So I appreciate everybody’s efforts. I’m going to be focused on it. I hope you will be, too.”
a friend of mine posted this yesterday on his facebook page. I couldn't find one other news source reporting it besides the one above "The Daily Caller" now some 24 hrs later surely some other source would have picked it up, yet NADA. I wondered yesterday if it was a hoax and cautioned my friend as it seems a bit off and too straight forward for our resident traitor. Although some of the language could be his I'm not so sure I believe it, especially without at least 1 major picking it up by now and running with it.
that's my thoughts on it anyway...
Good find, JG! I hadn't seen that!
This does seem as though it is a fact. My gut reaction was to post it in every single forum I could find!! This traitor single handedly is every bit bad for America and "for which it stands". But now at 62 I've learned not to go off. Which is why I suggested caution in waiting. Without that caution and thus making us conservatives look like some whacko's without merit, should it prove to be not true.
Now the question is how to get the masses of govt hand out scum, to see the path they're pulling us into with them. More so how to get the word out about this latest right out of Hitlers playbook?
A good question to ask is: how does the Bush "Patriot Act" and "Controlled Substances Act" fit into the picture?
While I'm a bit uncertain about the "Controlled Substances", it is certain the "Patriot Act" is actually over 1000 revisions to the existing "United States Code"---it will take scores of lawyers 50 years to figure out exactly what such drastic change will amount to.
There's the appearance that the "Controlled Substances Act" is primarily intended to suspend all Constitutional rights of those who are arrested for alcohol abuse, especially when driving. In Oklahoma, the police are no longer required to read prisoner rights, and every other ordinary Constitutional right is also denied---at a minimum, the victim will be harshly punished simply by being arrested (whether or not the arrest brings conviction).
So look at the big picture---Soetoro/Obama is only continuing assault on Constitutional rights, as initiated under Bush. The Republicans are challenged to say much, because it will cause emphasis on what Bush has done. The end result is a contest wherein both major parties are trying to tell the best lie, with regards to yielding Constitutional rights. Therefore, the whole government has a major problem---after all this abuse, clarity has arrived.
I think it's most likely the "Patriot Act" changed the pre-existing "Controlled Substances Act", so that private individuals are now put to the same process as was already being done to public carriers (regarding alcohol).
I try to not post things that I do not believe are fact, coming from a law enforcement background for my career. This was sent to me by a NJ Trooper I worked with! They are watching this very closely!
Thanks for that update Robin. I just would rather err on the side of caution. Too many times I go to some blog or comments on a news "flash" story and see way too many liberals just waiting to jump up and say "AH HA!" see u conservatives are all the same, picking on our poor defenseless, "bestest" POTUS ever, and I spit up in my mouth. As such I won't give em any ammo so to speak
besides if we don't agree "it's all Bush's fault" were clearly racists...
I agree, Ed! That is the very reason that JG, Rahth and I started this site! We got away from all the consipracy people. People like that are the reason our movement was diminished and the left called us all sorts of names! We try to keep that to a minimum here!
