Report: New Jersey leading Democrat strikes bicyclist with SUV, flees scene without stopping


JERSEY CITY, NJ- Wow! That’s all we’ve got in the case of a New Jersey councilwoman who was captured on video striking a bicyclist with her SUV then leaving the scene at high speed without checking for injuries, the New York Post reports.

Amy DeGise, a councilwoman from Jersey City, located across the Hudson River from New York City was seen driving at a fast rate of speed through an intersection when she struck Andrew Black, the cyclist, at around 8 a.m. on July 19.

The impact caused Black to go flying over the vehicles hood and falling to the ground, reported.

Black, 29 who is an Uber-Eats deliveryman said, “I look left, suddenly I just hear ‘Ba[m].’ I get hit. I roll over and I’m in such pain.”

Based on video surveillance of the intersection, it would be impossible for DeGise to claim she didn’t see the bicycle. She simply drove away from the intersection of Martin Luther King Dr. and Forrest St. in a Nissan Rogue like nothing happened, said Black, who was able to regain his footing after the crash.

In fact, it didn’t appear that DeGise ever even hit the brakes after she struck the bicyclist.

What happened after the crash is a bit subject to debate. At some point in time, she contacted the police department and received a summons.

On July 20, DeGise issued a statement in which she called the accident an “unfortunate event” however said she could not speak further due to her criminal case.

He did not suffer any serious injuries, but based on the impact, it could have been much worse. He is angry that someone who is supposed to be a community leader attempted to evade responsibility for the crash.

“Someone of prestige [who is] demanding to uphold and clean our streets or whatever they’re calling it can’t even do it themselves,” Black said. “It really upset me.” noted that Black’s shoes were knocked off as a result of the crash, while his now-mangled bike skidded to the curb. A number of people who witnessed the accident tended to Black in order to help.

For example, one woman retrieved his other shoe, while people from a corner preschool set out a cooler for him to sit on. A number of people stopped by to make sure he was ok.

The video shows Black pedaling through a red light at the time of the accident, the New Jersey Globe reported. Despite DeGise having the right of way, she was issued a summons for leaving the scene of an accident and failing to report it, the outlet wrote.

An online petition posted on gathered over 600 signatures demanding DeGise’s resignation. The Post said DeGise did not return a request for comment.

Anyone who found themselves in a situation such as DeGise did should have done the right thing and stopped. The fact that she is an elected official means she should be held to a higher standard than Joe Six Pack. She swore an oath to uphold the law, which she failed at miserably.

As noted, “pedestrian, bicycle and overall traffic safety are huge issues in Jersey City, so much so in fact that the city has signed on to the Vision Zero goal of ending tragic motor vehicle crashes.

The voters of Jersey City deserve an explanation from DeGise as to why she thought it prudent to evade the scene of an accident where she should have known there was a possibility of serious injury.

Why would anyone, especially a sitting city councilwoman strike someone with her vehicle and leave the scene? Is this what she thinks of her constituents?

DeGise is apparently well-connected. As we have seen in national politics, who you are is much more important than what you did. It will be interesting to see if DeGise is made to pay the price for her inaction and her deliberate attempt to evade responsibility for an accident.

Former police chief: Hypocrite Democrats only care about children when it furthers their political agenda on guns

The following includes editorial content which is the opinion of the author, a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

WASHINGTON, DC- An interesting dichotomy is to hear Democrats act devastated when we get news of a tragic school shooting such as the most recent one in Uvalde, Texas. We’ve heard Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tell the American people all the time, “it’s about the children.” Yet when push comes to shove the only time Democrats truly care about children is when they can use it for their purported political advantage.

Whenever a shooting takes place such as the one in Uvalde or ten days prior in Buffalo, New York, you can literally count down from ten on your fingers until the faux outrage starts showing up on Twitter or The View.

Just a couple of weeks after they lost their minds because of a misguided belief they would no longer be able to murder children in the womb via abortion, they attempted to convince the American people that they care about children when a tragedy such as what happened in Uvalde comes about.

The messaging out of the two incidents in Buffalo and then Uvalde is instructive about the mindset of mainstream Democrats. In Buffalo, where ten blacks were killed by a deranged gunman, the messaging was to condemn white supremacy (primarily). In Uvalde, since the shooter was a Hispanic American, it was time to change messaging to the gun used.

One common denominator in school shootings is the fact they are all located in “gun free” zones. Which means only a bad guy, intent on committing murder, is in possession of a weapon, thereby leaving children and teachers exposed.

Contrast the two most recent terrorist incidents with the attack last year by a black nationalist who mowed down participants and attendees at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, WI., killing six, including an eight-year-old boy.

That incident received barely a mention on the mainstream news and fell off the news cycle literally in a matter of hours with a few exceptions. The president couldn’t even bring himself to go to Waukesha to pay his respects, instead sending his wife and the husband of the vice president.

Yet, in the case of the Buffalo shooting, the White House announced plans for Biden to visit Buffalo within a matter of hours. Why? Because it was politically expedient to do so, giving Biden the opportunity to rail on again about “white supremacy” with the bonus of being able to demonize guns at the same time.

As noted by Susan Duclos in All News Pipeline, a majority of mass shootings occur in gun free zones, where the only ones who are carrying guns are the bad guys. Law-abiding citizens, legal gun owners, security guards and teachers are all left defenseless while criminals such as the Uvalde shooter wreak terror.

According to a 2018 study by, of all mass shootings between 1950 and June 2019, a full 94% of them occurred in gun free zones, while 6% occurred in areas where legal carry was permitted.

Yet, when the suggestion is made about putting armed security in schools, or God forbid arming teachers, liberals go into fits of insanity. In fact, one of the biggest loudmouths caterwauling about gun control, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy (D) proposed legislation in 2020 to remove armed school resource officers, aka police officers, from schools. You still think it’s about keeping kids safe?

This same party that claims to want to “protect the children” meanwhile is encouraging protests, and not necessarily peaceful ones, to protest the possibility that the Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade, which would only serve to put the abortion issue back to the states where it belongs.

These same Democrats just voted unanimously in the Senate to allow abortion right up to the moment of birth. In fact, some have gone even further, suggesting that the decision to terminate a child’s life after birth (otherwise known as murder), is a mother’s right. That is how much liberal Democrats truly care about children.

According to recent statistics from the American Life League:

  • Total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2018: 61.8 million+
  • 186 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease Control)
  • S. abortions in 2017: 862,320 (Guttmacher Institute)
  • Abortions per day: 2362+ (Guttmacher Institute)
  • Abortions per hour: 98+ (Guttmacher Institute)
  • 1 abortion every 37 seconds (Guttmacher Institute)
  • 5 abortions/1000 women aged 15-44 in 2017 (Guttmacher Institute)

The above statistics include only medical and surgical abortions and do not include those which use “abortifacients,” or drugs that induce or cause abortions, such as the so-called “day after” pill.

Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009.

When conducting research on abortion statistics, you may also encounter two different sets of numbers. One set is from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the other is from the Guttmacher Institute—the “independent research arm” of Planned Parenthood.

The Guttmacher Institute totals are actually the more accurate since the institute conducts private research on abortion providers throughout the country and because not all states are required to report to the CDC. In fact, California, and New York, where high numbers of abortions occur, are not included in CDC figures [emphasis source]

Despite the above numbers, which are chilling, the true numbers are, in fact, much higher.

So when you hear liberal Democrats pining over the tragic deaths of children such as what happened in Uvalde, Texas, remember this. It’s all symbolism over substance and is being done to gin up their unhinged base.

For more on two of the most egregious hypocrites, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, we invite you to read our prior piece.


The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the author, a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

WAUKESHA, WI- Flip the script and see what would happen. Take the terrorist attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin and flip the races and events…a white supremacist in an SUV takes aim on a Black Lives Matter march and runs down dozens of people, killing many of them.

The media, the White House and Congressional Democrats would be apoplectic. It would be on CNN and MSNBC 24/7. Since the Christmas parade massacre doesn’t fit the narrative, however all we’re hearing is basically crickets.

Now it is being revealed that just two years ago, then-Sen. Kamala Harris, along with Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and six other Senate Democrats slammed the Department of Justice for the sin of monitoring black supremacists.

In a letter, the Democrats claimed there was no such thing as “black extremists,” saying such was “a fabricated term based on a faulty assessment of a small number of isolated incidents,” according to a story in FrontPageMag.

And of course, any such monitoring of these potential terrorists was also “racist.”

If you recall, when Kamala Harris was running her failed campaign for president, during a debate she went after Joe Biden and made the easily disproven claim that as a little girl, “the privileged daughter of wealthy foreign parents” that she had been oppressed by racial segregation in of all places Berkeley, California, which is laughable.

Just over a week ago in Waukesha, a black supremacist killed at least six people, including a young, innocent 8-year-old boy, when he drove his SUV through a crowded parade, intentionally running people down.

This was they exact type of person Harris, Booker and the others was protecting when they wrote the DOJ.

In the letter, the senators demanded the DOJ and by extension the FBI eliminate the category of “black identity extremists” from the terrorist lexicon and also to cease tracking terrorist attacks by black supremacists.

Quite ironically, that same year two members of a racist black hate group, the Black Hebrew Israelites, also an anti-Semitic group entered a Kosher market in Jersey City, New Jersey and opened fire, killing three, including the store’s owner, an employee, and a customer.

Investigators later found their van loaded with explosives, enough to destroy everything within the perimeter of five football fields away, FrontPageMag reported.

Even still, despite this attack taking place in Booker’s home state, he refused to condemn the black supremacist group that he, Harris and the others had given cover to.

In a previous statement, Booker had slammed FBI Director Christopher Wray for the FBI’s monitoring of racist black supremacist groups.

“That language you said, both ends of the spectrum, the murders at synagogues, the murders we’ve seen motivated,” Booker railed.

“You said both ends of the spectrum, as if there actually is a movement of black identity extremism; it’s almost creating this reality.”

Booker is obviously either blind or clueless…we’ll go for the latter.

In 2020, another anti-Semitic, racially-motivated attack occurred when yet another Black Hebrew Israelite terrorist attacked a Monsey shul during Hannukah, whereby he slashed at least four Jewish worshipers with a machete while killing another. Nothing to see here, folks.

The man who was killed—a 72-year-old Hasidic Jew who was born in Hungary after the Holocaust—attempted to fight off the attacker with his cane, however the black supremacist struck him in the head with a machete, crushing his skull. He succumbed to his injuries three months later, never coming out of a coma.

The killer, Grafton Thomas was determined to be mentally unfit to stand trial this past April and was scheduled to be held in a mental institution indefinitely, according to Hamodia.

Thomas was able to get off, defended by a Green Party candidate and “respected civil rights attorney” Thomas Sussmann, who claimed Thomas was “deranged” despite the fact he had conducted meticulous research to identify the location where he would carry out the attack. One of his Google searches was, “Why did Hitler hate the Jews?” which is also significant in the Waukesha attacks.

Darrell Brooks, the black supremacist terrorist who carried out the attack in Waukesha also searched for “Why did Hitler hate the Jews?” with a meme appearing in his internet history. Brooks had previously posted the meme on social media, with the allegation being that Hitler killed the Jews in order to support black supremacists.

Of course Booker, Harris and the rest of the Democrat apologists weren’t the only ones who gave cover to the Black Hebrew Israelites. Not to be outdone, the New York Times identified members of the group as “sidewalk ministers” who engage in “tough love” while blowing off their racist diatribes as nothing more than “blunt and sometimes offensive language.”

“Tough love?” “Blunt” language? Here are a couple of examples: “The Holocaust is a damn joke! Heil Hitler!” What about, “The messiah, who is a black man, is going to kill you.”

Of course all of this is expected from the Times, which as conservative Mark Levin says denied the Holocaust and supported Josef Stalin in the day.

Moreover, it isn’t only the Times that throws cover for the black supremacist group. To nobody’s surprise, the Washington Post also covered for the group, when they falsely accused a group of students from Covington Catholic High School of racism when it was they who were subjected to racial slurs from a Black Hebrew Israelites group. The Post ended up settling a defamation lawsuit over its false reporting.

Still, the Post covers for the group, writing, “Israelite preaching in parts of D.C., Philadelphia, and New York is commonplace, a familiar if odd accent to city life.”

Anti-Semite Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) had also falsely claimed the Covington students engaged in “taunting 5 black men.”

All of this cover for this clearly terrorist group has emboldened them, which included a machete attack last year on a random couple in North Carolina.

In that case, a Black Hebrew Israelite was hiding out behind a house, and when the couple returned home, attacked the husband. The quick-thinking wife ran to the house and retrieved a gun, opening fire on the suspect forcing him to run away.

All of this led to the parade attack last week in Waukesha. And the FBI, no doubt intimidated by the dictates of senate Democrats such as Harris and Booker ceased using the term “Black Identity Extremism” in their lexicon, drawing praise from Booker: “That’s great news,” he told Wray.

“So nobody is being investigated or surveilled under black identity extremism?” Booker said.

All of that led to the black supremacist attacks which have occurred over the past few years, from the Jersey City attack to the Hannukah attack all the way to the massacre at the Christmas parade in Waukesha last week.

After getting assurances from Wray that nobody from the FBI was looking into black identity extremism, Booker issued a press release in which he said:

“Director Wray to issue updated guidance notifying law enforcement agencies about the elimination of this misleading designation.”

Misleading—nothing to see here, no murder of five Dallas police officers, no Kosher market attack in Jersey City, no attack on a Jewish seder in suburban New York City, and no attack on Christians at a parade in Wisconsin, all by violent black extremist terrorists.

In other words, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and the six other Democrats who browbeat Wray and the FBI to ignore violent black extremists all have blood on their hands. That is not hyperbole…it is fact.

Complicit in the carnage is the mainstream media. After the terrorist attack in Kenosha, the mainstream leftist media went out of its way to avoid the fact that it was a violent black supremacist who had carried out the attack. They defined the incident in some places as a “car accident” while one outlet said an “SUV” had carried out the attack, as if it was a self-driven Tesla that randomly ran people down in a parade.

Even more egregious, the aforementioned Kamala Harris, along with her boss, the incompetent Joe Biden issued statements after the three convictions in the Ahmaud Arbery case. Not one word has been said by either about the Waukesha massacre. Yet when Jacob Blake, a career criminal was shot by police last year in Kenosha, both Biden and Harris weighed in, with Harris telling Blake she was “proud” of him.

Both Biden and Harris issued statements in which they condemned the innocent verdicts rendered in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. Yet, when it comes to the massacre of six Americans, including an eight-year-old boy by a black supremacist, crickets.

We are truly living in sick, sad times.

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”.
