“Reimagine Los Angeles” Ballot Initiative Will Strip Almost $1 Billion From Law Enforcement, Court System

It’ll be on the ballot in November.

Published

on

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a ballot initiative that would strip almost $1 billion in funding from the county court system and law enforcement, giving the county’s voters the option of enacting a defunding of police that possibly outpaces anything enacted by any city in the country.

The “Reimagine Los Angeles” ballot initiative strips the courts and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department of around $890 million in funds, distributing ten percent of the city’s unallocated budget towards jail alternatives, social work, mental health treatment and other alternatives to the justice system.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva slammed the proposal of the ballot initiative, likening it to a defunding of the sheriff’s department that would recreate the apocalyptic atmosphere of the ‘Mad Max’ films.

The sheriff later explained that he’d have to close police precincts and cut back on personnel available for police patrol in the event the initiative passes.

Supervisor Kathryn Barger was the only member of the county board to vote against placing the proposal on the ballot, citing the large personnel cuts its approval would force the county to make, the questionable legality and vagueness of Reimagine Los Angeles, and her general opposition to defunding the police.

Supervisors Hilda Solis, Sheila Kuehl, Mark Ridley-Thomas, and Janice Hahn all voted to approve it, and it’ll be up to Los Angeles County voters to determine its fate in November.

Michigan Election Day Whistleblowers Demand for Republicans to Convene Voter Fraud Hearings

Republicans are trying to surrender.

Published

on

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.
