WASHINGTON, DC – Activists from Black Lives Matter are pushing democratic leaders to endorse a bill referred to as the “BREATHE Act,” which they call a roadmap to justice that would abolish prisons.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spelled out the demands in a Nov. 19th op-ed for Teen Vogue. She wrote:
“Police terror and mass incarceration do not exist in a vacuum. In our country, harm and punishment have invaded every aspect of society, and have done so with surgical racial precision.
We see it in the ways we address drug dependency and mental health crises by disproportionately putting Black and Brown people behind bars instead of providing holistic treatment.”
The editorial was titled “The BREATHE Act Is the Modern-Day Civil Rights Legislation We Need.” In it, she stated:
“We need to radically reimagine our concept of justice and safety. For too long, we have addressed harm with reciprocal harm.
Our elected and appointed officials catered to our worst retributive instincts, resulting in mandatory minimums, sentencing enhancements, and over-policing.”
Cullors appears to want to fling open the prison gates and free the inmates, you know such good people as the pedophiles, rapists, terrorists, murders, etc., and calls for Americans to support the BREATHE Act, which she calls a love letter to black people. She said:
“The BREATHE Act is a legislative love letter to Black people. When I read it for the first time, it made me emotional to finally see a law that made me and my community seen and our needs addressed …
It takes bold, progressive steps to build public safety systems that work for all of us, no matter what community we come from.”

It appears that the intention of the BREATHE Act is to release all convicted criminals and do away entirely with police departments.
Cullors envisions communities policing themselves, with no mention of a formal system of law enforcement and punishment for crimes minor or major. She wrote:
“[The bill] starts by divesting federal resources from vehicles of harm and punishment like policing and incarceration. That means slashing enormous police budgets.
That means decriminalizing drug use and repealing other federal laws that have for too long been used to disproportionately criminalize Black women, children, and families.
“BREATHE will put us on the road to police and prison abolition, letting our loved ones out of federal prison and immigration detention facilities and building nurturing reentry systems to welcome them home and put them on the path to success and citizenship.
“But that is just the start. It is a healing process. Next, BREATHE takes steps to build healthy and thriving communities.
We know that communities know best how to keep themselves safe. That’s why BREATHE will provide organizations rooted in their communities with the funds to create public safety systems uniquely tailored to their community’s needs and incentivize states to decarcerate and defund.”
She does not say how this BREATHE Act will make the world a better place. It is a huge pipe dream with little reality, and yet, she does not stop there. She said:
“Finally, BREATHE seeks to address past wrongs. We want to radically reimagine public safety and take our communities in a new direction, but we cannot gloss over 400 years of harm.
BREATHE will study and establish reparations programs, fulfill the federal government’s commitments to indigenous people, and build more accountability in our democracy by expanding the franchise and rooting out the ghosts of Jim Crow.”
Cullors has requested a meeting with current presidential Democratic candidate Joe Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. In this meeting, she is expected to demand that they pass this proposal within their first 100 days in office, should they be officially elected.
The #BREATHEAct invests in economic justice, education justice, housing justice and environmental justice while tackling systemic, institutional racism. Learn more about why we must pass this important legislation from @OsopePatrisse in @TeenVogue. https://t.co/IL5Z4hrrHH

There is additional language in the proposal to prevent any immigration cooperation as well as pilot programs for universal income. Something that is straight out of a socialist government’s playbook.
In making the push to meet with Biden and Harris, Cullors claimed that she and other black people saved the country when they all voted for them over President Donald Trump.
She said that Black Lives Matter helped push the Democrats to victory, and now apparently BLM expects payback. She said:
“What is abundantly clear is Black voters tipped the scales in favor of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, especially in Rust Belt battleground states. It’s a testament to our communities that the same people who have been treated the worst by our democracy still showed up to save it.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Biden, who has flip-flopped on the issue of defunding police, will eventually meet with Cullors or other members of Black Lives Matter.
If he does, how he will address their demands to free all convicted criminals and ‘reimagine’ public safety will be interesting, to say the least.

Think Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan is just a cheesy phrase? Think again…it’s much worse.

This article contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
WASHINGTON, DC – Have you seen Biden’s slogan, “Build Back Better?” Sound innocent enough, right? However, if you dig a little bit, it is a lot more onerous than it sounds.
Have you seen the willingness of a significant portion of the American people…around 50%…to accept without question restrictions placed on their personal liberty, regardless of the constitutional implications? We’ve said it for a while now…we are being played. This was information the American people should have known months ago.
Have you heard about “The Great Reset?” It’s apparently been trending on Twitter. Breitbart News published a piece and every American who cares about the future of our country and our autonomy as a representative republic needs to pay attention.
In short, the Great Reset is a plan to completely transform the world’s economy. If you have been at all suspicious about the unleashing of the coronavirus on the world, you have good reason to be. This plan would realistically implement a New World Order, make no mistake about it.
The plan is, there would be no money, no private property, and certainly no democracy. This plan would implement a system whereby every key decision made would be decided by, what James Delingpole writing in Breitbart calls a “remote, unaccountable elite of ‘experts.’ ”
Lest you think these are the rantings of a lunatic or something along those lines, the World Economic Forum has an entire plan surrounding The Great Reset. In short, the plan is a Communist’s dream.
In part, the agenda would “steer the market toward fairer outcomes.” Sound familiar? The week before the election, Sen. Kamala Harris, the could-be vice president, proposed exactly that. Not equality of opportunity but equity of outcomes.
The first component of The Great Reset would require world governments to “improve coordination (for example, in tax, regulatory and fiscal policy), upgrade trade arrangements and create the conditions for a ‘stakeholder economy.’ ” All of this is of course due to the “reset” placed on worldwide economies due to the pandemic.
The second component requires that investments (read taxes) would advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability.
This would be to fund “ambitious economic stimulus plans.” This would include building “’green’ urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics.”
Finally, the third component is to “harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges.” [emphasis added] They propose to join forces such as has been done during the COVID outbreak to take such efforts and expand them to every sector.
They say “the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable [emphasis added], and more prosperous future. Yeah, sign us up!
As Delingpole states, some would accuse people talking about such a plot as being conspiracy theorists—however as noted above, with the World Economic Forum being transparent about the plan, as well as other public officials, they aren’t even hiding their plans.
As an example, they cite Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau actually publicly spoke of The Great Reset and the video went viral on Twitter. Trudeau extolled the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity for a reset, quoting the World Economic Forum plans.
Oh, and he also used the term “Build Back Better.” Think that was an accident by Biden’s handlers? Apparently not so much.
Justin Trudeau calling the coronavirus pandemic an opportunity for a reset as per the WEF, and parroting the ‘build back better’ line which Biden just so happened to use as a campaign slogan.

“Building Back Better means giving support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs.
“Canada is here to listen and to help. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset [emphasis added].
“This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”
Delingpole says that such “meaningless garbage” is something that might be expected from a far-left zealot like Trudeau.
However Trudeau’s words actually do mean things: “Building Back Better;” “2030 Agenda;” “Sustainable Development and the SGGs;” and “reset” which are all, he says, buzzwords for a complete transformation of the world economy which would create…wait for it…a New World Order.
The slogan “Build Back Better” sounded like just a dumb little ditty that Biden came up with while eating Hot Pockets in his basement instead of campaigning like most real presidential candidates do. However, it is literally the slogan of the Great Reset.
Ever heard of Davos? You might have. There is a summit held in Davos, Switzerland, every year at which all the rich people try to decide how they’re going to suppress the peasants.
The slogan “Build Back Better” was coined by a man named Klaus Schwab. Schwab, now in his 80s, is a German who actually founded the World Economic Forum. Delingpole says that it has been said that Davos is “where billionaires go to lecture millionaires how ordinary people live.”
Up until recently, Davos has been panned in the past as an event where the beautiful people with money to burn show up in “private jets and their limousines to expound on the importance of sustainability and saving the planet.” In other words, a bunch of hypocrites.
However, COVID presented an opportunity, just as it has given the ruling class in the United States, otherwise known as governors and mayors, to see exactly how far they can push their subjects before they break.
As we have seen, that appears to be for at least half the subjects pretty far. In fact, not only have they used fear to achieve compliance, but they have also made it so those who offer resistance are pilloried by the cowards who don’t.
Delingpole notes that COVID has given the “perfect pretext for the kind of coordinated globalist takeover” which heretofore would have been thought not possible.
Just look at what has happened just this week with Thanksgiving. Governors and mayors have ordered residents NOT to have Thanksgiving celebrations and are mandating restrictions within people’s OWN homes. And some people have zero problem with it.
We would venture to think that if this was 1773 in Boston, these people wouldn’t be participating in dumping tea into Boston Harbor.
Schwab has, in fact admitted that the world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies”—in short, he says every industry must “be transformed…we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
In fact, Schwab noted how it was possible to get people to “make radical changes to our lifestyles.” He even referred to it as a “silver lining of the pandemic.” He noted how “almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.”
The World Economic Forum, speaking “of the coming technocracy that would rule our lives: ‘Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better.’” And Biden’s slogan is just about getting our economy back where it was before coronavirus, right?
Delingpole notes the coronavirus has merely accelerated the drive toward the Great Reset. He had reported earlier on the fact that Schwab had actually written several books about the plan:
“His latest, called Covid-19: The Great Reset, makes no bones about the fact that the chaos of the Coronavirus pandemic represents the perfect opportunity to accelerate the entire world towards a ‘new normal.’
“At the timer of this writing (June 2020), the pandemic continues to worsen globally. Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.
“Got that? As far as your new globalist overlords are concerned, you are NEVER going to get your old life back, however much you might wish it. Also, be clear: this is being done for your own good because your old way of life was based on a ‘broken’ model.
“Such is the author’s conviction that the new normal is what we need and should want, he scarcely bothers to pretend that Chinese coronavirus is anything other than a handy pretext.
“Unlike certain past epidemics, COVID-19 doesn’t pose a new existential threat.
“Schwab is clear in his book that coronavirus is not so much a crisis as an opportunity to be exploited—a chance to accelerate the birth of the New World Order he calls ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution.’
“Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes—as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes.”
Think Biden using the term “Build Back Better” as his campaign slogan was an accident? Breitbart notes that conservatives in the UK feature the website on their Twitter page. Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the UK has inserted the phrase into his speeches.
Conspiracy theory? Not so much…they have told us EXACTLY what they’re planning to do.
