Biden’s Administration and ‘Defund the Police’
We see in Scripture that ungodly counsel can ruin a nation while godly advice can save a nation. Let’s pray for the latter.
From Fox News. Despite maintaining public distance from the “defund the police” movement, President Biden’s administration has quietly maintained relationships with some of the driving forces behind the far-left movement, White House visitor logs reviewed by Fox News Digital show.
Several defund the police activists have visited the Biden White House and met with top aides over the last year, White House visitor logs show….
Rashad Robinson, president of left-wing racial justice group Color of Change, visited the White House last summer for what appeared to be a meeting with Cedric Richmond, a top Biden adviser who recently departed as the director of public engagement.
Color of Change has been among the most active groups advocating to defund the police. In 2021, they were at the forefront of the unsuccessful push to “dismantle” and replace the Minneapolis Police Department, an effort that was fueled by $500,000 from George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center….
Robinson has also celebrated the birthday of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur by calling for progressive groups to get “bolder” and “louder” in their demands for police abolition and their “plans for revolution….”
Robinson is also on the board of the Marguerite Casey Foundation, a Seattle-based left-wing grantmaking group…
Carmen Rojas, the President and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation and a vocal supporter of defunding the police, visited the White House in December 2021 and appeared to meet with Nia Page, a Special Assistant to Richmond before his departure last month to join the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
“We must be unwavering in our commitment to freedom,” Rojas tweeted in April 2021. “The best way to realize it is to defund the police and support abolition. Period….”
Latosha Brown, the co-founder of Black Voters Matter and a civil rights activist, has also advocated for defunding the police.
According to the White House visitor logs, her contact person in July 2021 was Vincent Evans, who worked in Vice President Harris’s office before leaving to be the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC)….
“Earlier this week, after President Biden addressed the nation on voting rights, we urged his administration to prove its commitment to combating voter suppression and lay out a strategy to restore ballot access,” Brown said in a press release about her meeting with Harris. “Today’s meeting with Vice President Harris marked an important step toward building that strategy.”
Other defund the police activists who have visited the Biden White House include Tylik McMillan, who serves as the “National Director of Youth [and] College” at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. White House visitor logs show him visiting the White House four times between April and December of last year….
