Cops Brace for Possibility of Biden Presidency: Bad for Law Enforcement

Cops are bracing for the possibility of (President-reject) Biden winning (stealing) this election. Would that mean a return to the Obama days of an activist, cop-hating DOJ? Quite likely, after all, Biden has already revealed how he would govern by immediately breaking a campaign promise.

Real Clear Politics recently reported, during the September presidential debate, Chris Wallace asked Biden, “Will you urge your supporters to stay calm while the vote is counted, and will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?”

Biden answered with a definite, “Yes.”

“And,” Biden continued, “[H]ere’s the deal. We count the ballots, as you pointed out. Some of these ballots in some states can’t even be opened until election day. And if there’s thousands of ballots, it’s going to take time to do it.”

Remarkably, he was right. Unremarkably, he’s not allowing that to happen. There are three options, right? Either he changed his mind; he went back on his word; or he lies as easily as he spins a tale about Corn-Pop.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

My guess is it’s somewhere between two and three. Biden and his supporters are not adhering to Biden’s promise not to declare victory until the election is certified. They’re too busy running around pretending the election is over. Though there was no independent certification, Biden delivered his “victory” speech on Nov. 7th.

Then, his staff fabricated a sign reading, “Office of the President-elect.” I scoured the Constitution, but I just can’t find any mention of such a position. President-elect is merely an interim honorific courtesy paid to a certified next President of the United States. A candidate has not yet been certified, so the election cannot be over.

Biden’s broken promise is being abetted by the Democrat Party, Silicon Valley, social media, and a legacy media which have joined him in his delusion. Some aggressively, like CBS News’ Major Garrett, who used a Churchill quote to allude to Trump as a Nazi.

By the way, Major, it looks like you could have stayed at FOX, after all. Anyway, this unholy alliance helps you understand how stealing an election is not just a matter of diddling with ballots, miscounting votes, and messing with voting machines.

The post-election day plan also appears to include the political theater necessary to seal an alleged fraudulent election. You have the legacy media pretending it has the authority to confirm a U.S. presidential election by repeating it loudly and often. Next, Democrat political operatives masquerading as journalists refuse to investigate or report alleged fraud, and they condemn anyone who asks honest questions about the dubious results.

Dreadfully, especially for cops, I believe another part of this theater will soon include leftist rioters returning to the streets in strength. They need to try to frighten Trumps supporters, and any others who want a fair election, to stop searching for the truth about any potential election corruption.

Fortunately, President Trump, his allies, and his 72 1/2 million (so far) voters are not about to let this fraud go—not without a fight. Of course, unlike the Left, Trump’s supporters will use any legal means to fight the corruption. When FOX attempted to engrave Biden’s name in electoral granite, Republicans, conservatives, and libertarians did not go out and destroy their communities. They love their country too much to do that.

As a retired cop with way too many friends still on the job, I take what seems to be an election wrought with possible fraud personally. (The state I live in experienced a stolen election for governor, in 2004.) Throughout the campaign, Joe Biden has consistently sided with anti-cop, pro-defund the police factions, and has embraced anti-law and order policies.

The 2020 election isn’t just about one president prevailing over another with the ramifications being only various policy differences among political opponents who love America. No, this time it’s the difference between electing a man who loves America and its cops and a man who doesn’t like America and half of Americans and wants to defund the police.

Americans know Democrat-run cities are not hospitable places for police officers. Every day, law enforcement officers wade through hostility so thick, they’re not able to shower off the toxic residue after their shifts. I’m not talking about hostility from the bad guys cops protect society from, but from the officers’ own city and sometimes department leaders. The people who hired them.

Cops support the rule of law, maintaining law and order, and upholding the U.S. Constitution. They’d like to get back to doing that in cities like Portland, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Seattle. With a continuation of a Trump administration, they might. Under Biden, they won’t.

No longer are police officers a “necessary evil” to leftist liberals; now, the radical left socialists see cops as an “unnecessary evil.” This hostility will only further increase under a Biden administration. We’ll likely see a return to the DOJ handing out consent decrees to police departments like candy from a Pez dispenser.

President Trump enjoys strong support from cops. And, it offends officers to see the Left attacking investigations into legitimate evidence of election irregularities, which may reveal fraud. The evidence being gathered is not proof, but there is a serpentine trail of evidence, which must be followed, to see if a fraud against the American people, which I believe occurred, can be proven in court?

But it’s even worse when people, including public officials and the legacy media, engage an all-out effort to collectively scream, “NOTHING TO SEE, HERE, FOLKS. PLEASE, LET’S MOVE ALONG.” Wait, that’s what cops are supposed to say, right?

Providentially, America is the blessed with 72.4 million patriots, likely including most police officers, who voted for President Trump to preserve and promote the American miracle. To keep striving for that more perfect union. We are also fortunate to be benefiting from an excellent cadre of some of the best attorneys in the nation. And there are the integrity media, which include Rush Limbaugh (EIB), Glenn Beck (the Blaze), Newsmax, and several independent online media sources (Lifezette) serving traditional America—reporting what the legacy media refuses to.

Finally, there are all the intrepid citizen investigators working hard to shed light on and root out what could be massive election corruption that the staggeringly incurious legacy media should be also investigating and reporting. Regardless of what happens, America’s cops are in for some tough times. From riots if Trump is certified the winner and from anti-cop president if Biden is certified.
