Democrat Wants To ‘Close The Parks’ So Trump Can’t ‘Minimize the Consequences of the Shutdown’



Minnesota Democrat Rep. Betty McCollum, chairwoman of an environmental appropriations subcommittee, demands that President Trump “close the parks” so that people can’t enjoy the parks that the president is keeping open during the shutdown. Then, people will feel bad and blame Trump!

“I agree with my colleague that this administration, when it comes to our public lands, is making matters worse not better by choosing to keep some parks open during the Trump shutdown. This political attempt to minimize the consequences of the shutdown will only result in further damage to our national treasures and place the safety of visitors at risk,” McCollum said on the House floor Friday (emphasis added).

McCollum says fee-collection funds are not enough to keep the parks open with as much money as they should have. But it is pretty clear that she is only thinking about political optics as she says “Close the Parks.” (It doesn’t look like the guy behind her is buying her argument).

POLL: Truck Drivers Won’t Deliver to Cities With Defunded Police Departments

They will be on their own.



A poll conducted among truck drivers by an industry organization reveals that a substantial majority of drivers will decline to deliver shipping loads to cities that “defund” their police departments, a new progressive policy proposal gaining acceptance in many Democratic cities in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the race riots that followed.

The poll was conducted by trucking industry news site CDLLife. The company polled CDL license holders on its app, asking “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?”

A whopping 77% of truck drivers who use the app said that they would not engage in trucking in cities without police departments. Some drivers explained their reasoning.

I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matter and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom.

For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments.

Trucking remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the country, more so than actually being a police officer. Department of Labor research has indicated truck driving is the most dangerous job in the country, rated through fatalities per capita.

One Minneapolis truck driver was attacked by a mob of rioters staging a roadblock on a public highway. The rioters were seen attacking the man’s truck and assailing his windshield after he tried to drive through their dangerous checkpoint. Remarkably, the driver himself was detained by the Minneapolis Police Department after the permitted rioters to shut down the highway, but was later released from custody without charges.
