• Fired First Responders Now Responding to Emergencies in Jurisdictions that Fired Them

    Fired First Responders Now Responding to Emergencies in Jurisdictions that Fired Them

    It seems clear, many cops who submitted to the mRNA injection did so under vehement protest. And I know that many cops, and non-cops, who received the injection even voluntarily still have an enormous problem with the “let’s see your papers” mentality of this government overreach. 

    Former NYPD police officer and U.S. Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino, now an influential radio/TV talk show presence, is in that category. Because of some serious recent health issues, Bongino got the injection. Regardless, he’s pushing back against his employer’s “vaccine” mandate. The Epoch Times reported, Bongino told Cumulus Media, “You can have me or you can have the [vaccine] mandate. But you can’t have both of us.” 

    Now, because of the proof of injection mandates, he’s risking his multi-million-dollar contract for his principles. He won’t work for a corporation that would abuse his colleagues like this. Not in the United States of America.

    Now, state, county, and city government leaders who are mandating employees turn over private medical records to remain employed have fired thousands of employees from various agencies. In Washington State, despite the best efforts of politicians to massage the numbers, troopers, officers, and deputies will tell you the termination toll on staffing is staggering.

    There is no doubt it will impact public safety. Criminals will hurt, kill, and take other peoples’ stuff who would not have if not for these irresponsible decisions to force cops out of their jobs. Is this an effort to purge the resistant so they can bring in the compliant? It’s hard to argue it’s not.

    This American Crisis has brought some thoughts to mind: Thomas Paine’s views on “sunshine patriots,” Sam Adams comments about those who refuse to defend liberty, and, oddly enough, mutual aid contracts. 

    These notions may seem disjointed but bear with me. Paine’s words leaped to mind when I considered the sacrifices of my bothers/sisters behind the badge who stood up for the importance of conscience against this health crisis exploitation by radical leftist, anti-police politicians. 

    Thomas Paine, in The American Crisis, famously wrote, “THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” 

    And, equally famous, these words from Samuel Adams:

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.

     “We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.

     “May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” 

    Now, these men wrote or said these words to inspire people during a bloody revolution to gain a nation’s independence. They may not suit the current situation in America to a T (then again, they may). However, America may not be engaged in a bloody conflict, nevertheless, there have been too many casualties.

    Whether motivated by religious convictions, medical concerns, a simple commitment to individual liberty, or a combination, the right to be sovereign over your own body is sacred. As NBA star Kyrie Irving so plainly yet eloquently said, “This is my life. I get to do whatever I want with this. This is one body that I get here.” 

    We owe all the cops and other Americans standing on principle a huge debt of gratitude. Too many people resign themselves to “go along to get along.” However, history has shown us appeasement never placates tyrants—at least, not for long. They always want more power. 

    As for the automatic mutual aid agreements police and fire agencies have with each other, the holes they poke into the ludicrous nature of these arbitrary mandates reveal the government’s lies regarding the mandates being about health rather than politics.

    Mutual aid agreements mean neighboring agencies will automatically assist each other to enhance public safety. These stories are anecdotal, but they are poignant, and you’ve probably heard similar accounts yourself. 

    This first one is medical-related, but it highlights the same premise. I heard a nurse on a radio program tell the host her hospital fired her for not submitting to the vaccine mandate. After they fired her, she went to work for a temp agency that gave her an assignment as a temp—working at the same hospital that fired her. 

    On another radio show, I heard a cop say his agency fired him from his police department for failing to show proof of his injection. He said he then went to work for a neighboring agency that did not enforce an injection mandate. But because of mutual aid he said he responds to calls in the jurisdiction that just fired him.

    Incidentally, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich, in Washington State, has produced a recruiting video which “prominently declares vaccination is not required.” Every American should congratulate the sheriff and other similar law enforcement leaders for their sane stances. 

    Think about that: cops and nurses fired by one agency only to be hired by another and then sent to their original agencies because those places are so short-staffed, in part, because they just fired so many employees.

    When taking these things into consideration, it appears weakening the public safety system is not a matter of science but a matter of politics. Now, because of these political tyrants, there are numerous cops, firefighters, nurses, doctors, teachers, and others sitting down at kitchen tables. They’re explaining to their children why Thanksgiving and Christmas may be a little lean this year and why they have to move out of their homes.

    May God bless them all.    

  • Local Cops Will Suffer the Consequences of Biden Administration Ignoring Federal Immigration Law

    By Steve Pomper

    A porous U.S.-Mexico border affects law enforcement officers in two ways—at least. It affects federal cops and their state and local partners working the insanity at the border. Then it also affects state and local law enforcement officers as the illegal immigrants, within which criminals hide, flow into various communities across the United States. Of specific concern are the drug and sex traffickers—and possible terrorists.

    Simultaneously, the U.S. has  announced the opening of its legitimate ports-of-entry to “non-essential” Mexican and Canadian visitors to the U.S. Ironically, these legal visitors will need to show their “vaccine” papers to enter. Illegal immigrants may continue crossing the border with zero virus restrictions.  

    For those who wish to be informed and pay attention to the very few media sources reporting on the border, the catastrophe is obvious. The Biden administration has worked terribly hard to hide from the American people the disaster at the southern border. Reportedly, an overflow immigrant holding facility in Yuma, AZ. was recently ordered to be emptied in anticipation of a visit from Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC).

    But it gets worse. FOX News, in an exclusive report, headlined “Leaked Border Patrol docs show mass release of illegal immigrants into US by Biden administration.” Further, they’re released “often with little or no oversight.”

    The numbers are staggering, especially when you consider who is likely hiding within the masses of otherwise law-abiding illegal immigrants. Reportedly, the Biden administration has released, “at least, 160,000 illegal immigrants… into the U.S.” This includes a generous interpretation of “limited parole authorities” to issue work permits to illegal aliens.

    Fox News reported Border Patrol documents they obtained show the government made over 30,000 of those people “eligible for work permits since August.” This is adding low-skilled workers into an already devastated economy.

    On Twitter, FOX News’ Bill Melugin tweeted, “According to Border Patrol documents provided by a source, the federal gov has released over 70,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since August 6, including 31,977 released via parole (temp legal status, eligible for work permits). 94,570 released via NTR [Notice to Report] since 3/20.” Something similar has already happened that the U.S. should have learned from.

    I remember, even a year after I began my law enforcement career in 1992, police in cities across America were still dealing with an immigration crisis from 1980 exploited by Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro called the Mariel boatlift. Along with law-abiding Cuban refugees fleeing oppression, Castro opened his prisons and also sent dangerous criminals to the U.S.

    Of course, that immigration crisis primarily affected south Florida. But in a South Florida Sun-Sentinel article, they wrote that the “successes” of the majority decent immigrants assimilating into American life, were “overshadowed by the actions of an estimated 16,000 to 20,000 criminals and other misfits who have contributed to an alarming increase in South Florida crime.”

    As time passed, that crime problem drifted to other cities across the U.S. The Miami District Director of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, Perry Rivkind, said, Castro “‘should be tried for moral complicity in murder, rape and robbery’ committed by Mariel criminals upon their arrival in the U.S.”

    Both the American and Cuban governments overtly or tacitly sanctioned the effort. Some 125,000 Cubans and 25,000 Haitians came to the U.S. between April and October 1980. Cuban exiles in the U.S. amassed some 1,700 boats with which to pick up immigrants at the Castro-authorized Port of Mariel in Cuba.

    But, according to ImmigrationHistory.org, “During this period, reports that the Cuban government also released prisoners to travel to the United States prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to blockade some 1,400 boats; however, hundreds of Cubans continued to arrive in Florida daily.”

    In 1993, investigated by my agency, a suspect raped and murdered Seattle musician Mia Zapata. It would take nearly 10 years to find, arrest, and prosecute her killer in 2004. In 2002, the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab had checked DNA evidence collected from Zapata’s body at the time of the crime.

    According to a story in Rolling Stone, the DNA matched “Jesus Mezquia, a fisherman living in Florida. A Cuban who came to the U.S. during the 1980 Mariel boatlift, Mezquia, reportedly had a criminal history that included robbery, kidnapping, and aggravated battery.” He died in prison this year on January 21st at 66 years of age while serving a 36-year sentence.

    There were many Jesus Mezquias back then and there will be more this time. 

    Today, there’s no foreign communist dictator to blame for dispersing illegal immigrant criminals (perhaps even terrorists) throughout America. We only have the Biden administration to blame. As time passes, police agencies will start reporting on illegal immigrant criminals who will be traced back to this deliberate border crisis.

    And the Mariel boatlift appears miniscule by comparison to the invasion America is now experiencing as the Biden administration continues to ignore federal immigration law. Currently, another 90,000 people are en route from South and Central America, along with others mixing with them from all over the world. The New York Post reported, as of July 2021, over one million illegal immigrants had crossed the border so far this year.  

    This comparison between then and now is important because it shows what cops today are likely to face because of these insane federal immigration policies. And this is happening as jurisdictions are defunding police, are losing officers because of atrocious treatment, and are now about to force more out the door because of “vaccine” mandates.

    Cops, who are already working with significant deficits, will have to deal with the consequences of these irresponsible federal and some state, county, and city policies. Hopefully, we won’t see the horror perpetrated against Mia Zapata committed against other people. But, frankly, even if the flow of illegal immigrants, including criminals, stopped today, I don’t see how we cannot.
