Original Article

Berkeley, California has approved a plan that prohibits police officers from conducting traffics stops. The plan, proposed by the mayor and approved in a virtual city council meeting early Wednesday morning, is just one part of a major "defund the police" overhaul planned by the city, Fox News reported. The move to separate traffic enforcement from police work is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S, according to the report. Instead of having trained officers conducting traffic stops, the new policy will send in unarmed civilian city workers to deal with traffic offenders.

Will traffic citations issued by unarmed civilian city officials be worth the paper they are written on?

The second most dangerous thing that police do is traffic stops. Should be interesting when a civilian stops an MS-13 drug smuggler.

Under who's controlling authority will anyone in Berkeley be pulled over for any traffic violation then? How about those police chases? Presuming they can't happen either, huh? Expect speeding and traffic light violations to increase in Berkeley.

As a deputy sheriff in rural Louisiana years ago, every traffic stop after dark was conducted with my holster unsnapped. In two cases that I can recall, it was necessary for me to draw my pistol. Fortunately, in neither case were shots fired. Where do they plan to find these sitting ducks to conduct traffic stops? Where do they find replacements for the ones who are killed or damaged during their stops? What could possibly go wrong with this plan? Where does Kalifornicate find these idiot politicians?

I recommend that city council members who voted for this volunteer to be the unarmed civilians who do this. Furthermore, I can't imagine any union representing public workers in California would support this for their own members, even if they support this in the abstract. The teachers unions here don't want to go back to work because they might catch the flu.

Not to mention 100% of dui's that resulted in pursuits and/or altercations. It's final folks, dems have lost their minds. I'm not even sure it's legal for a civilian to issue traffic citations.

There won’t be very many traffic stops because non-law abiding people who the civilian traffic monitors want to stop, simply will not stop. The reason that the leftist activists do not want police officers to be able to make contact with people after traffic stops is because that’s how the police identify and arrest a lot of people who have outstanding warrants, or detect people who are high on alcohol or illicit drugs, and when it comes to the Black population, it is a safe bet that a good portion of who are violent and have absolutely no self restraint are just about always going to physically resist the police that is always the genius for bad things happening. Especially if they are on some sort of probation or parole after some previous convictions and know that they could get sent back to prison.

What could possible go WRONG with this?? Can you picture a traffic enforcement officer trying to pursue a speeding car in his/her little putt-putt meter enforcement vehicle?? And just wait until the first (unarmed) traffic enforcement officer is gunned down during a traffic stop. This is more evidence that liberalism is a severe mental condition.

These 'civilians' will have the authority of the police if they are allowed to stop traffic. The mayor and city council are REPLACING the police. God knows with what. Whoever they are, they will not be civilians. Who is going to be in charge of hiring? What criteria will they use in hiring? The mayor and city council are hardcore lefties. Will this new police force be hardcore lefties? What rule of law will they be following? Agree that this won't end well.

While talking on Thursday to a coalition of leftwing activists hellbent on making Joe Biden president, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announced that her dog Bailey "is definitely going to vote in November," and Warren said Bailey is "voting Democrat all the way." "Bailey for Biden!" Warren cheered. And Bailey is just the type of low-information voter the Democrats depend upon. For the record, Warren never said she was joking. Let's hope Warren is less serious about her dog being a registered Democrat than she was about herself being an American Indian. It'd all be less scary if Democrats weren't currently doing everything they can to make voter fraud easier this November

Commentators came out of the woodwork to ridicule President Donald Trump for allegedly turning his July 14 press conference into a campaign rally (and for being unpresidential). So what if he did? They objected that he veered into other topics when he was supposed to be talking about China and Hong Kong. Horrors! The press corps, of all people, has no standing to complain about topic drift at presidential press conferences when it routinely uses such events to ask questions unrelated to the announced topic. Presidents always frame their policy positions in the most favorable political light, especially this close to an election. Don't even think about saying Trump is unique on this.

Kemp overruled all local governments that issued an unconstitutional, mandatory mask ‘law.’ “State, county, or municipal law, order, ordinance, rule, or regulation that requires persons to wear face coverings, masks, face shields, or any other Personal Protective Equipment while in places of public accommodation or on public property are suspended to the extent that they are more restrictive than this Executive Order.” Last week Kemp blasted Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ executive order mandating face masks in public.

Without fail, the media seems intent on making America out to be the lone failure in the world in the battle against the coronavirus. Many media outlets have described the United States as “losing the war” against the coronavirus because of the number of cases keeps going up. Axios, for example created a chart show that if all coronavirus patients (confirmed cases) were a city, it would be the third-largest city in the country. The recent trend of the media to focus on the total number of cases seems to be a result of the recent spike cases that failed to produce a similar spike in deaths.

We have been told repeatedly by health experts to demonstrate the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and the other meds prescribed with it we need strict clinical trials. These are studies where some patients receive medication, and some do not. For many healthcare providers, this is a noxious thought if there is evidence to believe a treatment may work. How do you ethically deny a potential treatment to an eligible patient to conduct a study? So-called double-blind studies described above are the preferred method advocated by Dr. Fauci. These double-blind studies allow people to die in the name of “science” if a drug is effective. They are in the “control group.”

Jared Polis, the Democratic governor of Colorado, thinks those of us who oppose scientifically dubious, constitutionally suspect and dangerously overbroad face mask mandates are “selfish bastards.” I think Polis is a pandering pandemic control freak endangering public health, safety, and sanity. There. Now that the name-calling is out of the way, let’s talk facts. Contracting COVID can be fatal or debilitating for the elderly, immune-compromised and physically challenged. But there is no catastrophic public health emergency justifying sweeping government orders and ordinances that would force healthy citizens to wear masks in an increasingly oppressive climate of manufactured fear — completely untethered from pragmatic realities and risk assessments.

An article published in the Los Angeles Times Tuesday said that the “Star-Spangled Banner” should be replaced by Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” LA Times contributor Jody Rosen cited “viral posts on social media” which said the anthem is racist, then argued it is aesthetically a bad song in the article. Rosen concluded saying the message of “Lean on Me” can be a foundation for a “decent” society. “If the point of a national anthem is to provide a mnemonic, a reminder in music and words of the ideas and values that this place is supposed to stand for, you could do worse than ‘Lean on Me,’” Rosen wrote.
