This looks like an attempt to pre-emptively dismiss Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ expected victory in the 2020 Iowa Democrat Caucuses.
“The Democratic caucuses are not ‘just like’ a primary election. The results of the caucuses are more complex than a simple vote count,” said Nora Cate Schaeffer, the president of AAPOR.
“Judging how well the pre-caucus polls of Iowa Democrats have performed must wait until the final caucus results are in,” Schaeffer stated.
The political establishment is clearly in the tank for former Vice President Joe Biden.
Sanders has been leading in the Iowa polls and is expected to come out victorious by the end of Monday night.
If the Democrat party truly lived up to its name, it would respect the will of its voters and not use the media to craft misleading narratives that favor its pet candidates such as Biden.
Nevertheless, Bernie Sanders’ surge represents a growing radicalization within the Democratic Party that will likely not go away.
For 2020, Trump is the only presidential option that can at least be a stop-gap against the managerial state.
Bronx Bobblehead AOC Believes that the Current Budget Cut to NYPD is Not Enough
On June 30, 2020, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that New York City’s budget cuts to the police department were not sufficiently adequate, declaring that “defunding police means defunding police.”
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman remarked in a statement.
The defund the police meme has caused some debate in Democrat circles. Some Democrats believe that the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and is only a slogan for police reforms.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
On June 30, the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a deal to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.
“We’re acting on that call for justice. I believe it is our mission to redistribute resources to those who need them the most,” de Blasio stated, “This is real redistribution.”
Activists that agree with AOC’s radical anti-cop reforms said they won’t put up with any plan that merely reallocates money and does nothing to substantially gut police departments.
“No funny math. No budget musical chairs,” radical anti-law enforcement activists said in a letter on June 30 to the mayor and council. “We’ll know if you fought for our communities or whether you will let the NYPD continue to be treated as if they’re above the law, even in the budget.”
New York City is currently suffering from a $9 billion shortfall in revenue due to the Wuhan virus shutdowns.
Defunding the police will only make New York City less secure and leave New Yorkers with virtually no options left for security.
