Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) fired back at President Donald Trump after Trump suggested that his weak leadership was hurting the city.
“Let me say this, weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your own actions. Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else during a time of crisis. Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis,” Frey said to reporters on Friday.
“We are strong as hell. Is this a difficult time period? Yes, but you better be damned sure that we’re going to get through this,” Frey added.
Frey was responding to Trump’s Twitter post in which he stated: “Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.”

However, Frey worked to make changes with police shortly before the crisis because he was concerned about political correctness.
Frey announced he would end all fear-based training for police, believing that cops should not be scared of the community. Police One noted the many problems with this approach:
Seriously, though, I wonder what Mayor Frey means by “fear-based training”? All police tactics training – such as firearms, defensive tactics, room clearing, domestic violence training, SWAT training, active shooter response and crisis communications, to name a few – are designed to give officers a prepared and defensible response for critical situations that naturally would create high levels of fear in any human being. Does the Mayor propose prohibiting all these trainings?
You see, when facing a potentially life-threatening event, fear can cause the untrained officer to freeze, underreact, or overreact. Police officers must be taught to operate defensively effectively, as well as legally, in these dangerous situations, while managing their fear. Training officers for survivability – physically, legally and emotionally – not only translates into successful conclusions to difficult calls, but also less liability incurred for the mayors in the jurisdictions that promote such training.
Frey also called for any references to the word “warrior” to be removed from all police-training materials. Police One objected to this change as well:
Those who do not like the word “warrior” often ask, “Do you think it’s a war out there?”
My answer to this would be, “No, it’s not. However, there are times in officers’ careers where they may experience close-quarters combat where the cost of losing will be as high to them as those soldiers who have fallen on the battlefields of our wars. Survival training is an essential part of preparing officers for these terrible and fear-filled moments that are unscheduled, but inevitable.”
I am certain the Honorable Mayor Jacob Frey is one of those people who sincerely love the sound of the word “guardian” to describe their police officers. It makes people feel good. It even makes me feel good.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Minneapolis police officers work often and they are indeed guardians. They know this. However, they also know something Mayor Frey has failed to realize. When you take up the proverbial shield of the guardian, sooner or later you will be required to draw the proverbial sword of the warrior!(Oops, I said it again.)
Now with the streets of Minneapolis looking like a war zone, Frey’s lax criminal justice approach is failing abysmally. Trump may have to come in and clean up the mess that his Frey’s of leadership has caused.
Michigan Election Day Whistleblowers Demand for Republicans to Convene Voter Fraud Hearings
Republicans are trying to surrender.
Michigan whistleblowers who have signed sworn affidavits attesting to grotesque electoral fraud by Democrats are demanding to be heard in a legislative hearing similar to what took place in Pennsylvania earlier this week.
“Media says they see no evidence of fraud. Legislative leadership says, “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.” Hundreds of poll challengers who witnessed fraud such as myself beg to differ. We believe that the truth about election needs to finally be heard without a media censorship filter,” former state senator Patrick Colbeck said in a press release.
“The people of Michigan deserve fair, open, transparent elections, and this year, for the first time in decades, their trust in our elections was shattered. If lawmakers fail in this most basic duty to hear the testimony of dozens of not hundreds of eyewitnesses, Michiganders at large will lose faith not only in their electoral process but in their Legislature as well,” said poll worker Adam de Angeli of Milan.
Republican leaders in Michigan are dropping the ball and going along with the dog-and-pony-show scam that the election was fair and square. They are effectively surrendering to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her extreme left-wing corruption, on the election and every other issue.
State representative Matt Hall, who is the leader of the House Oversight Committee, could use his power to convene a hearing to allow whistleblowers to speak out and a proper investigation to occur from there. However, he has refused to do so up until this point, taking cues from House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.
“We considered it, and we determined that logistically, it wasn’t going to work,” Hall said to Bridge Michigan for why he does not plan to hold a legislative hearing, making up a pathetic excuse to stab his fellow countrymen in their backs.
Big League Politics reported on how it was a top Michigan Republican attorney who voted with Democrats to certify the dubious election results even as countless whistleblowers attested to witnessing a third-world style vote steal:
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
Michigan Republicans have urged activists to consider contacting Hall, who frequently claims to be a pro-Trump strong conservative when it benefits his political ambitions, and let him know his career prospects are dead in the water unless he does the right thing and holds hearings immediately.
