Minneapolis City Council Members Receiving $4,500 A Day Private Security From City After Voting to Abolish Police

They all support abolishing the police department.

Three Minneapolis City Council members- all of whom recently voted to defund and dismantle the city’s public police department- are receiving private security details at the expense at Minneapolis taxpayers, FOX 9 Minneapolis has reported on Saturday.

The three city council members, Phillipe Cunningham, Andrea Jenkins, and Alondra Cano, have incurred costs of more than $63,000 over the past three weeks through the use of the city-funded private security details.

Jenkins cited an alleged white nationalist threat within the city of Minneapolis as a justification for the expensive security detail in an email to FOX 9. “My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” said the city council member.

Councilmember Cunningham also brushed off answering as to why he uses a taxpayer-funded private security detail, even though he supports abolishing the police.

I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats,” said Cunningham in a text message.

An inquiry to the Minneapolis Police asking why the council members were using private security instead of police was answered with the explanation that police resources are required in the community. Police revealed that no public reports of alleged death threats to city council members were filed with the department, although it’s possible such reports could’ve been filed confidentially.

The Minneapolis City Council has adopted two resolutions since the killing of George Floyd to begin the abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department. Neoliberal Mayor Jacob Frey has expressed his opposition to the proposal, but the council has passed the resolution in a unanimous fashion, ensuring that the council could override a mayoral veto and fully abolish the police department, installing a “new transformative model of public safety.

The hypocritical practices of the Minneapolis council members could be a premonition of their vision for the city, in which the political and economic elite are guaranteed personal safety and protection while the city’s middle class is left to the devices of mobs of aggrieved, violent, looters and rioters.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
