On Tuesday, February 11, 2020, state lawmakers approved legislation that would give local Virginia governments the power to take down Confederate monuments in public spaces.
Fueled from the outrage following the 2017 rally in Charlottesville, the Left has been adamant about pursuing policies that would help facilitate monument removals. Now that they have complete control of the General Assembly and the Governor’s office, Democrats are ready to demolish historical monuments in the name of political correctness.
In a vote that largely took place on partisan lines, the Democrat-controlled House and Senate passed bills that would grant cities and counties the power to “remove, relocate, contextualize, cover or alter” monuments on their public spaces.
On Tuesday, largely along party lines, the Democrat-led House and Senate passed measures that would give cities and counties the autonomy to “remove, relocate, contextualize, cover or alter” the monuments in their public spaces.
Democrat Delegate Delores McQuinn sponsored the House bill and said it would allow local communities decide “how they want to memorialize history, whether it’s right in your face or they want to memorialize it in another way.”
The bills’ opponents compared Confederate monument removal to erasing history and have expressed concerns that the legislation could lead to a slippery slope of other removals of monuments that commemorate controversial conflicts such as the Vietnam War.
“I do not believe this will end well,” declared Republican Delegate Charles Poindexter, who believes that the bill sent a “tough message” to veterans or dead veteran’s families.
This is another theater of the culture war that must be fought whole-heartedly.
The Left would like nothing more than to strip America of its history and create a deracinated society where people mindlessly consume and are at the whims of politically correct thought policers.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
