Ocasio-Cortez: $1B Cut to NYPD Isn’t Enough, ‘Disingenuous Illusion’

Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Tuesday slammed an agreement to slash $1 billion from the budget of the New York City Police Department (NYPD), declaring the decision is “not a victory” and that “the fight to defund policing continues.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and the City Council struck a tentative deal to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s budget by moving school safety services to the city’s Department of Education, according to the Gotham Gazette.

On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez slammed the tentative deal in a pointed statement: “Defunding the police means defunding the police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education budget so that the exact same police remain in schools.”

The New York Democrat added: “It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. it does not mean hiring more police officers while cutting more than $800M from NYC schools. If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to NYPD’s budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policies continues.”

Plans to slash funding come after the New York Post reported that shootings in New York City surged following the NYPD’s recent decision to dismantle its plainclothes anti-crime unit. In the last nine days, 110 people have reportedly been shot in the Big Apple.

Anthonine Pierre, a press representative for Communities United for Police Reform, slammed De Blasio’s plan to cut funding for the NYPD: “Mayor de Blasio and Speaker [Corey] Johnson are using funny math and budget tricks to try to mislead New Yorkers into thinking that they plan to meet the movement’s demands for at least $1B in direct cuts”

“This is a lie,” Pierre added.

On Monday, de Blasio confirmed plans to slash police funding, telling reporters: “I am excited to say that we have a plan that can achieve real reform.”

“Everything was with an eye to safety, so we will be able to ensure the patrol strength we need. We will be able to ensure that school safety can do its job. The school safety issue would be addressed over several years,” the left-wing mayor continued.

“I was skeptical at first, and wanted to see how it could all come together,” he added. “A lot of painstaking work occurred to figure out the right way to do things

But someone is writing most of the crap he spews.

Mebbe some of the time when he goes into Behind the Looking Glass land, it is memorized.

Joe Biden Claims He’s Taken Cognitive Functioning Test Despite No Record of One in December Exam

Joe Biden told reporters on Wednesday that he’s taken a cognitive functioning test which, if true, must have occurred sometime in the last 6 months.

Biden was attempting to exit his speech-turned-press conference, and the last question was from Doug McKelway of Fox News, who asked if the presumptive Democrat nominee has been tested “for some degree of cognitive decline?”

“I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested,” Biden responded.

“All you’ve got to do is watch me, and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” he said.

In December 2019, Biden released his medical exam, and as one analyst observed, one test was missing: a cognitive functioning test.

Stuart Jay Olshansky, a professor of public health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, reviewed Biden’s results and told the Washington Post, “The only test that hasn’t been done is the cognitive functioning test.”


He added, “But the fact that he’s on the campaign trail and meeting a rigorous travel and meeting schedule probably would suffice as a replacement for the formal test for cognitive functioning.”

Olshansky told the paper cognitive tests are not typically required “unless problems are detected.”

The part of that rainbow takeover by the perverted-freaks that I hate the most is that they have no made it so that the gullible dingbats in our society see it on normal people and think they are supporting the perverted-freaks - or even are one!

Should we call this "liberal flight"?

(as opposed to "white flight")


Let's not be shy and call it what it is - RACIST. Based on their rules.
