Do you proudly support law enforcement and President Trump? Are you looking for ways to get in the fight? Click here to learn how you can be a part of the movement.
Law Enforcement Today proudly stands for the more than 800,000 men and women who serve on the front lines in our law enforcement community and their supporters.
We are unapologetic for our support of law enforcement and are outraged by the way police are being treated in the wake of one police officer’s egregious conduct.
This treatment has come from Black Lives Matter activists, Antifa thugs (sorry – “ideas”), Hollywood hypocrites and political hacks with “D’s” after their names.
This year, for the first time, Law Enforcement Today is proud to make our first ever endorsement for president—Donald J. Trump.
Frankly, this was an easy decision. From our perspective, there’s no other choice.
President Trump has been an unabashed supporter of law enforcement. He calls himself the “law and order” president, and he has shown that to be true in both actions and words. As cities across America suffered violent riots, the president was out there offering the full support of federal resources to put down the violent riots—all mayors and governors had to do was ask.
In some cases, they did just that and local police, with the full backing of federal resources, put an end to the mayhem in short order. In cases where the president was rebuffed, we saw what happened in cities like Seattle and Portland.
Police officers noticed. Across the United States, one police union after another has supported President Trump, from the Fraternal Order of Police to the NYPD to sheriff’s offices, they all knew who had their back and who certainly did not.
What Other Option Is There?
Let’s look at the president’s opponent, Joe Biden.
Biden supports cutting police funding. When an activist asked him if he supported efforts to “redirect” police funding, Biden answered without hesitation, “absolutely.”
He then tried to walk back those comments, saying he never said he wanted to defund the police. Sorry Joe, redirecting means taking money FROM police and REDIRECTING it somewhere else.
Under the Unity Task Force Biden agreed with Socialist Bernie Sanders that policing needs to be “reimagined.” That is the talking point among Democrats—from AOC to Kamala Harris to Biden himself. This lingo has been used by those who wish to defund and/or abolish the police.
Among their recommendations, which have been implemented in some states already are:
- Eliminating qualified immunity, which protects police and law enforcement from frivolous lawsuits
- The Supreme Court has ruled that qualified immunity protects police departments against the cost of lawsuits, which draws attention away from their actual jobs;
- Eliminating qualified immunity would in essence cut police funding, which would add new legal costs for police, while taking time away from actual law enforcement activity;
- Restricting civil asset forfeiture, where police seize money and property from criminals
- The NAPO said that an Obama action aimed at restricting this practice was a threat to a “significant funding” source for police agencies;
- This would effectively cut funding from police agencies;
- Prohibiting police from receiving surplus military equipment, or as Democrats call it – “weapons of war.” This program provides police agencies with protective gear, which includes ballistic vests and helmets, other safety equipment and in some cases helicopters;
- The National Sheriff’s Association slammed former president Barack Obama for restricting this program, an action that was later reversed by President Trump, who correctly noted that local police agencies could not necessarily afford this equipment on their own;
- Once again, blocking police departments from receiving this equipment effectively cuts their funding, since money would have to be redirected toward purchasing this equipment;
- Setting up an unarmed “civilian corps of first responders” would once again remove funding from police. In addition, this would put civilians in harm’s way, where police would then be responsible for bailing them out of trouble;
- Biden counts among his strongest supporters anti-police zealots like John Legend, who has been among those leading the charge to defund the police. Legend also was responsible for donating money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which bailed out known criminals, some who reoffended upon getting out of jail;
- Mayors who are among Biden’s biggest supporters have all substantially cut their police budgets, with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio cutting the NYPD budget by $1 billion, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti cutting $50 million from the police budget in Los Angeles.
- Biden has on his staff anti-police staffers, one of whom had previously referred to cops as “pigs” on social media, and tweeted support for efforts to defund the police.
Now, we realize the skeptical among you are saying, “Aw, c’mon man!” We would not make claims such as this without citing sources. So, with that in mind, here you go.
Defund the Police/”Reimagine Policing”
July 2020, Biden was asked if he supported redirecting police funding. According to “Now This News” on 7/8/20, Biden said:
“Yes, absolutely.” Continuing, “Surplus military equipment for law enforcement. They don’t need that. The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood just like the military invading.”
In July, the Unity Task Force said we need to “reimagine policing.”
“Democrats believe we must ensure real accountability for individual and systemic misconduct in our police departments, prevent law enforcement from being unnecessarily entangled in the everyday lives of Americans, and reimagine policing for the benefit and safety of the American people. “Biden for President, 7/20
Defund the police advocates such as BLM use the term “reimagine the police” to mean defunding or abolishing the police. For example, BLM co-founder Melina Abdullah said:
“It’s important that as we say, ‘defund the police,’ we understand that it’s coupled with a reimagining of public safety.”
The New York Times admitted the connection between “defund the police” and “Reimagine public safety” with the following headline on 6/6/20, “Cities Ask If It’s Time To Defund Police and ‘Reimagine’ Public Safety,” The New York Times, 6/6/20
Where qualified immunity is concerned, the Biden for President website on 7/8/20 called for eliminating qualified immunity as follows:
“Far too often, the law has shielded police officers who stand accused of heinous violations of civil and human rights. Democrats support lowering the intent standard for federally prosecuting law enforcement officials for civil rights violations.
We will also act to ensure that victims of federal, state, or local law enforcement abuses of power can seek justice through civil litigation by reining in the doctrine of qualified immunity to increase police accountability.”
Yet another “Unity Task Force” recommendation says: Reform civil asset forfeiture to restrict the conditions under which property can be lawfully seized by the government.” Biden for President, 7/8/20
Both the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) and the Major Cities Chiefs Association criticized the Obama administration’s attack on asset forfeiture, saying that depriving departments of civil asset forfeitures will hurt, and that the program is a “critical tool that we all need.”
Blocking Police from Receiving Surplus Military Equipment
The Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force called for blocking the “Transfer of Surplus Military” equipment to police, referring to them as “weapons of war.” The website says:
“Reinstitute and strengthen the Obama-Biden Administration’s Executive Order 13688 to prevent the transfer of surplus military controlled weapons and explosives, nonpassenger vehicles, armored or weaponized drones, and combat aircraft to law enforcement agencies under the Department of Defense’s 1033 Program.” Biden for President, 7/8/20
Once again, the 1033 program provides equipment to police departments that they otherwise could not afford. The equipment was used in terrorist attacks in San Bernadino, CA, as well as The Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, along with floods in South Carolina and snowstorms in North Dakota, according to the National Sheriff’s Association on 8/28/17.
On August 27, 2017 the president of the Fraternal Order of Police praised the Trump administration’s decision to resume the 1033 program, according to the Washington Post.
“Protective equipment is essential to officer and public safety in a wide variety of life and death situations,” said Chuck Canterbury, the association’s president.
Canterbury continued that the previous administration of Obama/Biden was more concerned with the image of law enforcement being ‘too militarized’ than “they were about our safety.”

Biden also counts among his supporters radicals such as radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who tweeted on 6/5/20 that “It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.”
In June, Biden had a fundraiser with anti-police zealot John Legend. Legend called on police to be defunded in an open letter signed by numerous Hollywood hypocrites.
“Vote no on all increases to police budgets. Vote yes to decrease police spending and budgets,” the letter said.
In June, far-left loon Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that a $1.5 billion cut to the NYPD budget didn’t go far enough.
“The fight to defund policing continues.”
There were numerous other examples of Biden supporters pushing to defund the police.
The Biden Campaign Hired a Staffer After She Tweeted That Police Were Worse Than Pigs.
In June, Biden campaign supervising video producer Sara Pearl tweeted support for the defund the police movement, saying that people shouldn’t compare police to pigs, since pigs were “highly intelligent and empathetic” and would “never racially profile you.”
Pearl also retweeted a comment that said while “pigs are sweet intelligent and compassionate, police officers are ‘monsters’ who ‘don’t deserve to be called pigs.’”
So, enough about why we are NOT endorsing Joe Biden. Because, as we see with many Biden supporters, they cannot tell us why the SUPPORT Biden, but only why they OPPOSE Trump.
As we outlined above, there are plenty of reasons for police not to support Biden. He simply has not shown that he supports the hard work done day in and day out by police officers. He, like most Democrats, have thrown down with the mob that is destroying our cities and towns, intimidating our citizens, and who want to fundamentally change our country.
Why do we support and endorse President Trump?
- President Trump reinstituted the use of surplus military equipment that has saved the lives of law enforcement officers and citizens;
- President Trump reformed the so-called Obama-era “Collaborative Reform Initiative” in order to better prevent crime, incentivize proactive policing, and train officers in de-escalation tactics. The Obama administration policy created an adversarial relationship between the Department of Justice and local police agencies.
- President Trump reinstituted the federal government’s asset forfeiture police, restricted under Obama-Biden.
- President Trump made an excellent choice in Attorney General Bill Barr, who has prosecuted criminals who attack law enforcement officers.
- President Trump signed the Mental Health and Wellness Act, which provides essential services for law enforcement personnel.
President Trump, as we said earlier, has been an unabashed, champion of law enforcement as an institution and individual men and women. He understands how critically important police officers are to the safety and security of our country. He has made it a priority to honor and support the men and women who put on the uniform every day, some leaving their families unsure if they will ever return home.
Unlike those on the left who blatantly attack, accuse, and demonize police officers, sheriffs, correctional officers, and others in the criminal justice system, the president has shown that he will always make sure that the American people know and understand that our law enforcement officers are supported and honored for their selfless service.
The collapse of law enforcement will usher in the end of America as we know it
Editor note: Late last year, our National Spokesman Kyle Reyes launched an article about the challenges America is facing right now. It exploded. And it’s arguably even more relevant today than it was then.
Many of you have been asking about how you can get involved. We’d invite you to consider joining our membership program – LET Unity. We take the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories. The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers. The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.
For the rest of you… simply keep following, keep reading, and keep sharing.
I, [name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
It’s something that you don’t really consider when you’re young. You can do anything. You’re invincible.
But as we grow older, we start considering that mortality.
It’s time we start considering the mortality of America.
I spend a substantial amount of time working in two different arenas – the world of law enforcement and the business world.
By day, I run a marketing agency. Among the areas we work in, we do extensive work in the firearms industry. My travels take me across the country – often to some of the most rural parts of America.
By night, I am the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today. I’m not a police officer. I was tapped because I can do one thing cops can’t do. I can give them a voice. I can run my mouth and no agency can fire me.
That travel that I referenced – both in the business world and supporting the LE world – has afforded me countless opportunities to work side by side with some of the greatest patriots in America. My closest friends are either in law enforcement or either active or retired members of some of the most elite military forces in America. And from our greatest warriors to our everyday citizens… I can tell you the underlying fear that so many are thinking about – and that’s the seemingly inevitable collapse of society if we don’t make some monumental changes.
As a Christian, I believe we are in the middle of some serious spiritual warfare. But you don’t have to be a Christian to understand that the very soul of America is under attack right now. And the rapid erosion of the Thin Blue Line has us sitting on a powder keg.
Historically, if you look at the collapse of some of the greatest empires in the world, it happened from within. Simply put, it raises the distinct danger that America won’t be conquered by foreign enemies … but rather from domestic ones.
When historians say that an empire fell, it means that the central state no longer exercised its broad power. That happens either because the state itself ceased to exist or because the state’s power was reduced as parts of the empire became independent of its control.
It typically doesn’t happen because of a single cause, but rather a long process. The main factors that historically lead to imperial collapse are:
- Economic issues
- Social and cultural issues
- Environmental issues
- Political issues
Now none of these factors are causes in and of themselves, but rather are ways to categorize causes.
What that means is you wouldn’t make a determination that Rome fell because of politics, but rather you’d explore political factors to understand the collapse. And in those issues are warning signs for us as Americans.
That brings me to the threat we face today.
Have you ever heard of something called the Cloward-Piven strategy? It’s not exactly something the mainstream media talks about… but it’s something you need to be aware of, because it’s what we’re facing in America today.
American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven created the political strategy in 1966. The idea behind it is to overload the U.S. public welfare system to create a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.
If that doesn’t describe what we’re seeing from Democrats who are running for POTUS right now, I don’t know what does. But it’s a much bigger threat than you might realize. That’s because it’s so incredibly pervasive. It’s poisoning the very roots of America.
And it calls to mind the words of Jefferson:
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”
We are seeing groups here in America demanding open borders. Demanding the decriminalization of crossing into our country illegally.
At the same time, across our great country, we are seeing the CRIMINALIZATION of law enforcement. It’s gotten so bad in states like the People’s Republic of California and Connecticut that we’re seeing the crash and burn of morale in law enforcement.
We’re seeing agencies desperate for officers, because as more and more retire (or count down the minutes to retirement), we see a deficit in the number of incoming recruits. After all, why would you want to live a life of service when you’re just going to be attacked for that service?
We see political activists masquerading as police chiefs. We see them working hand in hand with liberal politicians to not only attack the rights of law-abiding citizens, but also to destroy the morale of their own departments. We watch as they flat out disrespect the oath of office they took and put officers in no-win situations.
If I were to design a road map for how to collapse America, starting with law enforcement, here’s what it would look like.
Step one: Divide the protectors.
The refusal to allow rank and file patrol officers to cooperate with federal law enforcement to uphold the law. It’s a slap in the face to Americans and it’s a dereliction of duty. It’s also a clear and intentional move to create a divide between local, state and federal law enforcement. Divide the protectors… conquer a society.
Step two: Divide the supporters.
Force officers to choose between enforcing unconstitutional legislation like Red Flag laws, which deny citizens of their right to due process… and providing for their own family.
Make cops the bad guys. Take the people who have historically supported law enforcement and convince them that cops are now the enemy. Divide the supporters… conquer a society.
Step three: Remove their protection
Make cops afraid to be cops. Encourage disrespect on them like water bucket attacks. Don’t go after the criminals who attack them. When officers arrest criminals, let them back out on the street within hours because a liberal judge determined that the violent suspect with a lengthy criminal history isn’t actually a threat. Then threaten law enforcement officers that if they do their job, they’ll be investigated. That if they have to fight for their lives, they’ll end up being charged. Remove both their desire and their ability to police.
Step four: Flood America
By some estimates, one million people will make illegal entry into America this year.
There are fewer than 850,000 law enforcement officers in America. Do the math.
Now let criminals create havoc in society but instead of deporting them or actually cracking down on crime, let Americans know that the real problem is guns owned by law abiding citizens and pass legislation to take away their rights.
Step five: Destroy our homes
Own the media. Own Hollywood. Force feed Anti-American, socialist and communist policies into our homes and our education system. Convince our children that right is wrong and wrong is right. Take God out of society, destroy the family structure and teach everyone that the solution to your problems is in the form of pills, porn and the government.
Step Six: Bypass Congress for gun control
Have “private businesses” like Dicks and Walmart determine what you can and can’t buy. Allow Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn and snap determine what you can see and what you can say… because it’s not a violation of the 1st Amendment if it’s done by private enterprise.
Step Seven: Use “social justice” to vilify love of country
Take every patriotic American who wants to see a better country for their children and call them a racist, etc. if you don’t agree with them. Then mass report them on social media to make sure their accounts are cancelled and their voices are shut down.
Then say you think they’re a threat and have a judge determine that combat veterans and our nation’s greatest warriors need to be disarmed because of post-traumatic stress. Then force officers to go to war with their own brothers and sisters.
It’s happening right in front of our eyes. And it’s starting with a full onslaught against our law enforcement officers in every way, shape and form.
Want to save America? We need to start by understanding the enemy. And sometimes the biggest threat that an empire faces is the enemy within.
We hope you’ll consider getting in the fight with us. Here’s what Law Enforcement Today – the largest police-owned media outlet in America – is doing.
We at Law Enforcement Today want to make our stance very clear.
We strongly and firmly stand behind the Second Amendment, companies that keep civilians and law enforcement officers safe through products and innovation, and the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.
We are launching a new series of options to help our partners and other patriotic businesses to be able to connect with consumers. While we can’t replace Google, Bing or Facebook – we sure can provide options to ensure that these companies and our brothers and sisters have a voice.
We welcome with open arms companies that openly support law enforcement, and we are proud to offer them options to get their products to market.
We started noticing the problems a couple of years ago. Social media was scaling back the reach of content that it didn’t believe people should see.
Not that there was anything offensive about it. We’re talking about pro-police videos, stories about patriotic Americans and more.
And from our perspective, that created a huge problem. We have some of the greatest warriors in the world. Yet their voices and their stories were being buried.
The mainstream media, on the rare occasion that it would tell some of these stories, would give you only a piece of them. They’d cram as much as they could into a 90 second segment, slap their bias on it and that was it.
We needed to fix it. And so we are.
Law Enforcement Today (LET) is proud to announce the launch of LET Unity – a new home focused on bridging the gap between civilians and civil servants. We’ve merged with The Whiskey Patriots to massively expand content, rolling out hundreds of videos to members.
Many of those in our focus groups dubbed it the “Netflix of the law enforcement community”. But the truth is, it’s so much more.
The first officer in the door at the Pulse nightclub shooting.
Emergency responders from the Parkland shooting.
The bomb squad that responded to the Aurora movie theater massacre.
Survivors of the Dallas five killings.
The first Marine Guard hostage in the Iran crisis.
The CIA agent who started a counter human trafficking company.
World War II veterans.
And so, so much more.
The membership is less than the cost of two coffees a month, and those who sign up for an annual membership will get some surprise bonuses in the mail. We decided to charge a nominal fee so we could take all of the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories. The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers. The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.
On top of that, we’re opening up the platform to some well-known podcasters who are going to be joining the team with some incredible content soon.
We have a problem in society. Censorship has created an existential threat to democracy. But even worse is the risk we run that some of these incredible stories of patriotism, hope, faith and our Sheepdogs would be lost.
We’ve launched a series of content with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to share the stories of survivors. We will also be dropping a weekly law enforcement focused newscast that addresses some of the most important topics in the country… and helps bridge the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.
On top of that, we’ll soon be rolling out a series of private discounts and special promotions to members only as a “thank you” for being a part of the family.
You can also download the app to watch the content right from your iPhone.
We hope you’ll join us in this journey, knowing that your membership is going to give a voice to those who have been silenced for so long.
If you are one of the many companies out there that’s being censored – or you’re worried about what’s to come – don’t hesitate to reach out today. I can be reached at [email protected]
We will not be silenced. You shouldn’t be either.
God bless you all, and God bless America.
