Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez let it be known that a police union’s endorsement of President Donald Trump is simply not acceptable.The New York Democrat suggested there is a “potential problem” with unions representing the “enforcement arms of the state” now endorsing the president’s reelection bid. Ocasio-Cortez slammed the historic decision by the New York City Police Benevolent Association to back Trump in a tweet on Friday. (Photo) The union, which represents 24,000 NYPD officers, announced its official endorsement of the president and met with him personally on Friday when Trump stopped in New York City to visit his brother in the hospital.

For all the years of my life, police unions have endorsed candidates. For most, so have reachers unions, Tell you what, aoc.. I would give up one if you would give up the other. What’s that you say? What? Unions have the legal right to endorse? Durn, for a while I thought we had a deal.

OK. Lets deal. Dems disavow any help from the public employees union because the government is their boss and it is an incestious relationship (not that that kind of thing bothers the dems) and Republicans will disavow any help from the police unions because, well, just to sweeten the pot. What? Not OK? Then you can just zip it AOC.

I believe that the Police Union has the Constitutional right to endorse any candidate they wish for public office. Apparently the Postal Union just endorsed Biden-Harris and are now making all sorts of claims that President Trump is starving them and that they will not be able to immediately deliver up to a possible 100 million mail in ballots that the Democrats are trying to force on them, without the Democrats handing them many billions of dollars that who knows what it will be spent for, with a lot you can bet kicked back to Democrat politicians and operatives.

Many of these pro-Dem unions are going to have to choose between no job at all and their traditional Dem support. 'De-funding' is the least of their problems - these destroyed cities will be lucky to escape Chapter 11. And then union contracts won't matter at all if the courts tear them up.

The teachers unions all should be disqualified. They are the indoctrination arm of the democrats. Neither should the Postal service Union. These folks aren’t even allowed to stand at the service desk for more than a few hours of the day and other silly union rules. They and their pensions are ripping off the American taxpayers.

President Trump was greeted with rapturous applause from a small crowd of supporters as he returned to Washington, D.C. following the death of his younger brother, Robert. The Commander-in-chief, 74, touched down at the White House on Sunday evening with his wife Melania, 50, and their son Barron, 14, following a short flight from Bedminster, New Jersey. It was the first time the trio have appeared together in public since the coronavirus pandemic upended American life more than five months ago. The President appeared somber as he made his way off Marine One, giving a tentative wave to the group of well-wishers as he walked across the lawn.

A pro-Trump boat parade in Florida that is attempting to break a Guinness record reflects the “not-so-silent” majority that will enable the incumbent president to sail to reelection in November. That is the assessment of former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi who serves as national co-chair of the Women for Trump organization. Speaking remotely to the Fox & Friends Weekend crew on Saturday, an enthusiastic Bondi expressed confidence that the gathering of MAGA boaters from all over the country could break the Guinness world record, which was set in Malaysia in 2014 with a total of 1,180 vessels.

On Sunday, Aug. 16, FOX6 News got a behind-the-scenes look at the key workspaces that will help bring the convention to the masses."Normally this happens in a small little truck, so this is a very different way for us to be operating," said Jessica Jennings, director of media logistics for the 2020 DNC.

The biggest fallacy in America today just might surprise you. The truth is the divide in this country is not about right versus wrong or law and order versus chaos.

Already losing population before the pandemic, our major urban centers have provided ideal kindling for conflagration with massive unemployment, closed businesses and already rising crime rates.The forms of disintegration vary.

More Americans approve than disapprove of Joe Biden's choice of Sen. Kamala Harris for the 2020 Democratic ticket by a 25-point margin, 54-29%, in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Approval of the pick ranges from 86-8% among Democrats to 25-55% among Republicans -- notable that one in four Republicans approves. It's 52-29% among independents, potential swing voters in presidential elections. While reaction to Harris is broadly positive, the margin narrows among those who have strong opinions. Thirty-four percent of Americans strongly approve of her selection, while 22% strongly disapprove, a 12-point margin. One reason is that her strong support

All of these items are interrelated. All three are being eroded. Taken together, it is likely that the NFL has reached its high water mark and instead of expanding, as it dreams, the league will instead diminish in importance from here on out. As to the underlying causes for the NFL's problems, start with the most glaring: the Wuhan virus.

Since the election upon Benedict’s retirement of Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, Leatherby has shunned the new pontiff and continued to only refer to Benedict as the church’s true leader in mass. Last week, after several warnings, he was charged with schism, defrocked and excommunicated from the Catholic Church. “I continue to regard Benedict as retaining the Office of Peter, as mysterious as that might be,” he wrote in an open letter
