No Peace - No Justice!
The dead have no civil rights.
The chant “No Justice - No Peace” ignores a fundamental fact: there can be no justice without peace.
This is why law enforcement officers may be referred to as “Peace Officers.”
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Americans who are fearful of being killed just for stepping out into the streets of cities where violence is commonplace are not likely to peaceably assemble, nor are Americans who are fearful of being violently attacked for voicing their opinions likely to engage in free speech.
Simply stated, without civility, civilized conduct is impossible and hence, the exercise of the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution, becomes more than problematic -- it can result in death!
Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues in the Congress are legislators. In part they are responsible for writing our nation’s laws. Unlike the immutable laws of nature, without enforcement, legislated laws are absolutely meaningless. This is why nearly all laws not only establish how individuals and other entities such as corporations must conduct themselves, but establish the punishment that may be imposed when those laws are ignored or violated to not only punish those who violate the laws but to deter those who would violate the laws.
Law Enforcement Officers, as their title implies, enforce our laws by conducting investigations and arresting those who violate our laws.
Under normal circumstances you would imagine that legislators would support law enforcement because law enforcement assets insure that laws are obeyed.
However, it is clear that there is nothing normal about the circumstances under which we find ourselves in this dangerous era.
Indeed, there are crimes on the books on the city, state and federal level that address the crime of obstruction of justice.
Across the United States increasingly radicalized politicians have supported increasing levels of anarchy -- beginning, decades ago, with the creation of so-called “Sanctuary Cities” that obstruct immigration law enforcement by harboring and shielding illegal aliens from detection from immigration law enforcement authorities.
The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, reported on the clear nexus between international terrorism and multiple failures of the immigration system.
Nevertheless, “sanctuary” policies proliferated and increasingly obstructed immigration law enforcement and even included the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens who could not verify their identities or backgrounds.
The rhetoric against immigration law enforcement officers, including the Border Patrol and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents, became ever more vitriolic.
Now, the radical Democrats have similarly attacked all law enforcement authorities and seek to dismantle law enforcement across the United States using the death of George Floyd as supposed justification for this lunacy.
There are occasions where law enforcement officers violate laws and codes of conduct. But those transgressions are extremely rare. Furthermore, law enforcement officers who commit such violations face serious consequences.
Peaceful demonstrations have been co-opted by violent rioters and anarchists.
My recent article, "Attacks on Law Enforcement Are Attacks on America," noted that while there are instances where lives are lost to malfeasance by law enforcement officials, there are horrendous examples to be found in other professions that result in the loss of life. In my earlier article I noted:
Consider that on February 22, 2018 CNBC posted an important report, The third-leading cause of death in US most doctors don’t want you to know about.
That report began with these two bullet points:
A recent Johns Hopkins study claims more than 250,000 people in the U.S. die every year from medical errors. Other reports claim the numbers to be as high as 440,000.
Medical errors are the third-leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.
However, no rational person would call for the defunding of hospitals while the “leadership” of the Democratic Party attack and vilify law enforcement officers and demand the defending of law enforcement agencies because of a precious few instances of malfeasance by law enforcement officers.
Let me be crystal clear -- the loss of one life is a tragedy and not to be minimized. However inasmuch as nature abhors a vacuum, defunding, vilifying and demoralizing law enforcement officers create a huge vacuum on the streets of those towns and cities, "led” by radical politicians.
Gangs, anarchistic sociopaths and rioters have rushed in to fill that void with catastrophic lethal results.
Chicago and other major cities have reported dozens of shootings every weekend. The loss of life has been massive and even young children and babies have been slaughtered.
Although out of control anarchists in Portland, Oregon have created an unparalleled level of violence and chaos, incredibly, on July 27, 2020 the Washington Times reported, Rep. Jerry Nadler says Antifa violence in Portland a 'myth'. Democrat Nadler chairs the House Judiciary Committee.
Federal officers have been seriously injured and yet the mayor of that besieged city falsely blames federal officers from protecting federal property including the federal courthouse for the violence.
Outrageously, Pelosi and other “leaders” of the Democrat Party call federal law enforcement officers "Storm Troopers” and fallaciously claim that these federal agents drive black unmarked vans, abduct “demonstrators” off the streets and refuse to identify themselves. Some politicians accuse these law enforcement agents of being “Trumps Secret Police.”
All of these agents are clearly identified by the patches and littering on their raid gear. Arrests and not abductions. Furthermore, all law enforcement agencies on all levels use unmarked vehicles. This is not a nefarious but commonplace practice.
The Democrats themselves, however, do have a cadre of unidentified “Storm Troops” -- they are the anarchists and rioters who are determined to destroy our nation by wreaking widespread destruction.
Law Enforcement officers have strict guidelines given how they conduct themselves and the laws that they enforce provide mission guidance -- determining the ultimate goals of their field operations.
Anarchists, gangs and rioters, on the other hand have no such rules or laws. For them anything goes, as long as they can get away with it. The radical politicians are removing the barriers that law enforcement imposes on criminal and violent conduct on the streets of America’s cities.
With no constraints, these anarchists and thugs are unencumbered and free to attack buildings and innocent victims who get in their way.
Pelosi and company seek anarchy to effect “regime change” in the United States at any cost.
This is only the latest gambit in her play book and the play book she shares with her radical cohorts and propagandists from the “Ministry of Truth” that the mainstream media has become.
The “Russian Collusion” hoax failed and so they have ratcheted up the measures to prevent the election of Donald Trump to his second term as President and they are desperate!
However, while Pelosi may think she is in charge, she must remember that running in front of a train is not the same as leading the train. That train is picking up speed and is likely to run over her and her old-guard radicalized Democrats.
Clearly Pelosi and the mayors of these unhinged cities value power far more than morality. It would appear that they consider the bodies of dead children slaughtered by criminals and gangs as “collateral damage” and speed bumps on the road to their political goals.
I will not claim to be a biblical scholar, but certainly the famous example of the “Wisdom of Solomon” is relevant today. King Solomon was approached by two women who both claimed to be the mother of the same child. Inasmuch as there was no DNA testing back then, the King offered to have the baby cut in half and provide each of the two supposed mothers with an equal share of the child’s remains.
One of the two women immediately agreed to the proposal while the other mother was aghast at the prospect of her baby being killed. Without hesitation she told the King to give the baby to the other woman so that her child would be spared. It was readily apparent who the real mother was. She was the one who put her child’s life above all else.
Today America and Americans are on the line. Blood is being spilled and lives, including the lives of babies are being lost all too frequently.
Pelosi and company not unlike that bogus “mother” want their share no matter the cost to lives or the survival of our nation itself.
It is hard to imagine anything more vile, reprehensible or dangerous than Pelosi’s conduct and the conduct of her anarchist cohorts.
