Democrats in the Virginia legislature are proposing a resolution that would change assaulting law enforcement from a felony into a misdemeanor.
‘The Senate Democratic Caucus has led and is continuing to conduct a series of community conversations to discuss these issues and we have heard from the public that now is not the time for studies or delay and that changes must be made during our Special Session,” the document claims, which is called, “Senate Democratic Caucus Police Reform and Criminal Justice Equity Plan.”
Currently, assaulting a law enforcement officer is considered a Class 6 Felony under the Virginia code punishable by a jail sentence of at least six months. One aspect of the comprehensive plan proposed by Democrats would make this type of offense into a misdemeanor.

The plan also states: “We will continue to take public input and work with stakeholders, the House of Delegates, state agencies, and Governor Ralph Northam to refine these measures over the next 60 days.”
House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax) has made it clear that it is her party’s legislative priority to weaken law enforcement and enable thugs to run wild in the streets.
“We must reimagine the role of policing in our commonwealth and recommend changes in the budget that divest resources from policing and reinvest those resources in public education, health, crisis intervention, and other services that are preventative rather than punitive in nature,” she said while addressing reporters.
Big League Politics has reported on how Virginia, under the stewardship of blackfaced Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam, is leading the way in enabling the far-left mob takeover of politics:
Governor Ralph Northam signed bills on April 11, 2020 that give municipalities in Virginia the power to remove or alter Confederate monuments.
The passage of this legislative package comes more than three years after the Charlottesville City Council voted to take down a statue of Robert E. Lee. The same city council subsequently took down a statue of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.
Charlottesville now has a new avenue for destroying American history via monument removal.
.“This is landmark legislation for Virginia,” declared Virginia delegate Sally Hudson, D-Charlottesville, on April 11. “Communities across the Commonwealth will finally have the freedom to reckon with our public history and decide for ourselves what to celebrate. There’s still so much work to be done, but this is a major milestone for all the advocates, activists, educators and community leaders who elevated this urgent call together.”
Senate Bill 183 and House Bill 1537, sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke, Delegate Delores McQuinn, respectively, repeals the state’s prohibition on the removal of Confederate war memorials.
As of July 1, municipalities will have the ability to remove, relocate or modify the monuments in their communities. Virginia is home to more than 220 public memorials to the Confederacy.
The Democrats are doing to Virginia what they would do to all of America if they reclaim the White House in November.
HOW CONVENIENT: California’s Newsom Lifts Stay-at-Home Order Days after Biden’s Inauguration
What a coincidence.
California Governor Gavin Newsom lifted a statewide stay-at-home order throughout the state on Monday, days after President Joe Biden’s Inauguration.
The timing of the policy change is suspicious. The Biden administration has urged all Americans to strictly follow coronavirus guidelines for one hundred days following the inauguration, although the new President admitted there was “nothing we can do” to alter the trajectory of the virus, starkly contrasting with his language regarding coronavirus during the campaign.
Already giving up. Banner headlines in all major media outlets? Nope. Most will bury this but it is a stunning admission. Biden says 'nothing we can do' to change pandemic 'trajectory' in coming monthshttps://t.co/BQEWFIIp7i

While daily new cases of coronavirus in California have declined during January, state health officials are still reporting more than 20,000 new cases a day, which is easily the most in the country on a per-capita basis.
“Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down,” said Newsom of his decision to revoke the stay-at-home order. The unpopular Democratic governor is currently facing down an energetic recall campaign, and he denied that the revocation of the stay-at-home orders had anything to do with it.
California’s administration of the vaccine also ranks among the most lackluster in the country, with only a few states vaccinating less of their populations than the far-left state. The vaccine failure raises even more potent questions as to the timing of the stay-at-home repeal.
With Democrats now facing the prospect of actually being held responsible for the ramifications of their governance, many coronavirus lockdown restrictions are being quietly swept under the rug.
