PHILADELPHIA, PA. – On Monday, far-left Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner said that federal law enforcement officers would be criminally charged if they “unlawfully assault or kidnap anyone in the city.”
Krasner is the enemy of the people. Make no mistake about it. He is not interested in law enforcement, or protecting the innocent citizens of his city.
He is more interested in publicity and making a name for himself, maybe positioning himself to be Joe Biden’s attorney general if the Democrats somehow steal the election.
As cities burn and crime runs rampant across the country due to gutless mayors and governors, President Trump has said that he is going to deploy federal agents to some cities in order to get crime under control.
This is what our country has devolved into. As Democrats look the other way as their citizens are murdered in record numbers all because of November 3, one of the only people willing to act has been President Trump.
Trump's dare to deploy additional troops to more cities will test the mettle of reformist prosecutors like Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, who has aggressively pursued police reforms, reports @brentinmock https://t.co/mLRvwMBAaj

Bloomberg is reporting that Krasner blustered the following statement:
“My dad volunteered and served in World War II to fight fascism, like most of my uncles, so we would not have an American president brutalizing and kidnapping Americans for exercising their constitutional rights and trying to make America a better place, which is what patriots do.
“Anyone, including federal law enforcement, who unlawfully assaults, and kidnaps people will face criminal charges from my office.”
Where to even start.
First of all, if Krasner’s father did fight in World War II, he would be disgusted by what he is seeing take place in America’s major cities, including the city where his son is the chief “law enforcement” official.
We use the term law enforcement loosely, because Krasner has shown himself to be anything but.
He continually refuses to prosecute criminals who are looting and destroying the city, while filing charges against a police officer who used pepper spray to clear anarchists who were blocking a major Philadelphia highway back in June.
Krasner said that these people in Portland were “exercising their constitutional rights?” The First Amendment under the Bill of Rights guarantees the right of Americans to peaceably assemble. It does NOT give them the right to break into buildings, assault police officers, set buildings on fire and loot businesses.
Krasner is a clown for even trying to suggest that these “protests” in Portland and other cities are anything other than riots.
Patriots? How about a definition, Krasner? A patriot is “a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.”
Patriot? This is an abject insult to his own father, who fought Nazi and Japanese aggression in World War II. It is also an insult to every man and woman who has ever worn a uniform defending our country.
President Trump is trying to fill the void caused by gutless mayors, who refuse to stand up to insurrectionist thugs while their cities burn, and people are murdered…including CHILDREN!
Mayors such as Lori Lightfoot in Chicago, Bill de Blasio in New York, and Ted Wheeler in Portland fiddle while their cities are burning.
In the case of Portland, President Trump ordered federal troops in to protect a federal building, which he clearly has the right and authority to do.
Those were not “patriots” trying to break down doors and enter the building. They were common criminals.
Of course, we get so-called “legal experts” weighing in, saying that the president exceeded boundaries in the actions in Portland.
A so-called “legal scholar” from the George Soros funded Brennan Center for Justice, Elizabeth Goitein wrote on Twitter:
“[T]he use of a secret federal paramilitary force in Portland (and soon Chicago and likely other cities) is every bit the abuse of power it appears to be, while making the unfounded claim that the president’s decision to protect federal property is ‘pure pretext’ to have federal agents take the place of local police.”
In short, the use of a secret federal paramilitary force in Portland (and soon Chicago and likely other cities) is every bit the abuse of power that it appears to be. And it’s an abuse we can expect to see again in November if the administration isn’t called to account. 14/14

If you want a real hoot, read the responses to Goitein’s tweet. Some liberals in this country are truly brain-dead.
Krasner, one of a number of district attorneys who were beneficiaries of Soros’ unlimited supply of cash, has been pursuing police reforms and he has taken steps to reverse so-called unethical and unconstitutional police practices which he claims the president wants to see more of.
According to U.S. News & World Report, President Trump on Monday said that he was “going to do something” about out of control crime, and he cited Philadelphia along with other major US cities as places he might take federal action, which he noted were all run by liberal Democrats.
Philadelphia’s feckless mayor, Jim Kenney, a Democrat of course said the president singling out Democratic led cities was “a politicization of federal resources that should outrage all taxpayers.”
The Associated Press said Tuesday that the Department of Homeland Security is planning to deploy about 150 agents to Chicago, according to an official with the agency. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Clueless Krasner seems to ignore the fact that as of July 6, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, 888 people had been shot in the city, an average of 4.7 people per day. On the same date last year, 701 people had been shot, nearly a 27% increase year over year. That would put “The City of Brotherly ‘Love’” on pace for the highest murder rate since 1997.
While there is no single reason for the increase in crime, frustration over nearly four months of lockdown restrictions, combined with anti-police sentiment resulting in officers taking a hands-off approach to enforcement, and the fact that Krasner is a soft-on-crime for the bad guys, tough-on-cops doing their jobs kind of guy, it isn’t a wonder that crime is running rampant.
Krasner is one of a number of district attorneys put in place by George Soros, including Paul Howard in Fulton County, Georgia, Kim Foxx in Chicago, Rachael Rollins in Boston, Chesa Boudin in San Francisco and famously St. Louis’ Kim Gardner, who recently charged two citizens criminally for defending themselves against an angry mob that broke onto their property.
Krasner of course is a hypocrite. While he criticized President Trump for avoiding military service, Krasner himself never served in the military.
During his interview with Bloomberg, Krasner compared President Trump to Russian president Vladimir Putin, said he is acting like a “historical Argentinian dictator,” and said that the president “likes the image of the strong man.”
Krasner spent the bulk of the time trying to deflect from his own incompetence and inability to deal with crime in his own city under his watch by criticizing the president, who at least is trying to do something.
Hopefully the American people are waking up to frauds like Krasner, Gardner, Howard, and other Soros stooges occupying district attorney offices throughout the country. Because until these people are removed, the rule of law will be ignored and people will keep dying, including our most innocent, our children.
