Former police chief: America is sitting on a powder keg, and conservatives aren’t going to take it much longer


The following editorial is written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

“Inciting an insurrection…” Apparently, that only counts if it is a Republican who is allegedly doing so.

A couple of years ago, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened two Supreme Court justices on the steps of the Supreme Court—Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Media outrage? Crickets.

This week, New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D) once again threatened the Supreme Court, this time speaking of a “revolution” if the high court doesn’t uphold Roe v. Wade, the pro-abortion case which decided that women have a constitutional right to abortion, despite the document being completely silent on the issue.

As Christopher G. Adamo writes in Conservative Playbook, why shouldn’t Democrats threaten violence if they don’t get their way. It always seems to work out for them, and they are certainly not held to account by the mainstream media.

As he notes starting back in the 1960s (and likely well before that), leftists used protests and violence to as a cudgel to get their way. Some of those protests, such as those promoted by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were largely peaceful.

Many, however devolved into violence. In fact, as Adamo notes many were actually designed specifically for that purpose.

As we saw in the Summer of 2020, leftists and Democrats are perfectly fine with using the Bill of Rights, specifically the First Amendment as a crutch to support their right of “protest,” even if those protests turn violent.

Conversely, when supporters of former President Trump descended on the US Capitol on January 6 to exercise their First Amendment rights, that was a different matter altogether.

Sometimes, leftist protest turns extremely violent, with leftist groups having engaged in bombing the US Capitol in the 60s and 70s, and more recently where a violent leftist Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire at a Congressional baseball team practice, seriously injuring Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA). For the most part, Democrats have accepted this type of “protest” as being guaranteed under the Constitution.

Leftists have also, as Adamo notes, infiltrated a majority of American institutions, including schools, elected office and appointed positions, along with the mainstream media, big tech, and other establishments. What used to be considered radical is now considered to be the accepted “standard.”

Look at what has occurred over the past 21 months with COVID-19 and the ridiculous, draconian mandates implemented by (primarily) Democratic mayors and governors, along with more recently Joe Biden?

The lunacy of the far left and the evisceration of our God-given rights is no longer considered out of the mainstream by a portion of the American people.

We have seen police demonized while criminals are let loose on the streets. While crime explodes on the streets, the White House propagandist says it is because of “COVID,” not because of the left’s light-on-crime policies and anti-police rhetoric.

The same politicians who defunded the police and demoralized the rank-and-file officers don’t look in the mirror as they see virtual genocide in cities such as Chicago, but instead blame those very same officers for out-of-control crime.

More recently, we have seen the Biden Department of Justice unleash the power of the FBI on mothers and fathers who oppose the indoctrination of their children into the Marxist critical race theory and deviate sexual ideology.

The left looks to, as Adamo says, “smash any resistance to their agenda.”

Much of this started five years ago, when the Obama administration, complicit with the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign began an attempt to undermine then-candidate Donald Trump, an effort which continued for about three years of Trump’s presidency.

The scheme included the intelligence apparatus of the US, as well as the FBI. We saw a good man in Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn attacked, his reputation destroyed by a two-tiered justice system.

The Democrats then engaged in two politically-motivated impeachments against Trump, with the most recent one designed to attempt to prevent Trump from running again in 2024.

Associates of Trump were jailed for relatively minor crimes while members of the FBI, who engaged in far more egregious criminal conduct were either never prosecuted or received a slap on the wrist.

More recently, we saw the FBI conduct a raid on the home of James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, allegedly in an attempt to recover the diary of Joe Biden’s daughter, a laughable excuse for a pre-dawn raid. The same was done a few years ago to Trump confidante Roger Stone, complete with an accompaniment by CNN, which was tipped off to the raid by someone inside the FBI.

In Congress, Republicans have been censured and had their committee assignments pulled for saying the wrong thing, but an anti-Semite like Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is allowed to spew her anti-Israel, anti-Jewish tripe on the floor of the House with nary a word from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

A member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who slept with a Chinese spy, remains on the House Intelligence Committee.

Yet recently, two Republicans—Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) were censured and had their committee assignments revoked for making statements which are far less egregious than those made by Omar and who unlike Swalwell didn’t consort with communist spies. Two tiers of justice.

If anyone was expecting help from the “leadership” in the House and Senate, don’t hold your breath. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has proven to be all bluster and no substance, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to stand up to Schumer, the most recent example being unable to force the “dreaded” government “shutdown.”

That leaves it up to the American people, specifically the rank and file conservatives embedded among the leftist lunatics on the coasts and in “flyover” country.

If you want to see the complete disconnect from reality of leftists in the country, a prime example is the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. Anyone with any modicum of common sense who watched the trial knows that Rittenhouse was completely 100% justified in what he did.

Yet, go to CNN or MSNBC where the leftist lunatics hang out, race baiters such as Joy Reid, Don Lemon and Nichole Wallace and you get a completely different take.

Contrast the Rittenhouse verdict with the terrorist attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin on a Christmas parade, an attack which some on the aforementioned networks attempted to justify as an “expected result” of the Rittenhouse verdict. It is also obvious in how the attack was reported, not that of an unhinged black nationalist but an “accident” caused by an “SUV.”

However, most right-thinking Americans are starting to see through the fog spewed by the left. People are simply not buying the claim that the Waukesha terrorist was “fleeing the police” and it was simply a very tragic “accident.”

As store shelves remain empty, gas prices go through the roof and with a cold winter ahead, the obsession of the mainstream media continues to be on the worst “insurrection” in US history, the Jan. 6 siege at the US Capitol.

It has become a point of obsession for CNN and MSNBC, as well as the legacy media and garbage newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, as they ignore runaway inflation caused by the ineptitude of the cognitively disabled Joe Biden and his band of incompetent boobs.

Meanwhile, that same media, while reporting on Jan. 6 has ignored the fact that the FBI likely had a rather significant hand in orchestrating the events of the day.

The phony “January 6 commission,” more accurately described as Mark Levin defines it as a “politburo” is stacked with anti-Trump Democrats and two Republican RINOs in Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).

As 14 days to “slow the spread” now enters its 22nd month, it is clear that a significant portion of the American people are no longer “falling for it.” By that, trust and confidence in the federal government is leaking faster than the air in AOC’s head.

Oh sure, there are those who still believe everything they hear from the government and from St. Anthony of Fauci. That number however is dwindling.

As Adamo says, a good number of Americans have seen the leftists in the Democrat party for the frauds that they are. While buildings were on fire on American streets, Democrats painted the incidents as “largely peaceful.”

While criminal thugs brazenly go into US businesses and help themselves to whatever they want and leftists claim they are doing so “because of COVID,” normal, hard-working Americans become incredulous.

As Americans are told if they travel abroad they must test before and after and even if vaccinated, must quarantine for seven days while our southern border remains wide open, they become angry.

Recent events show there is still hope for America. From parents speaking out at school board meetings, to everyday citizens running for and winning elections, to overwhelming support for the jury verdict in Kenosha, Wisconsin to widespread condemnation for the terrorist attack in Waukesha, we are starting to win, or so it seems.

Adamo closed with:

“According to the Declaration of Independence, the only rightful government is one which has derived its power from the “consent of the governed.”

Day by day, that “consent” is fading from the Democrats, which is why they have become so power mad recently as they see the end will likely come less than one year from now in the mid-terms.

As Peter Finch famously said in the movie Network, we’re “mad as hell and we’re not going to take anymore.” Amen to that.

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
