Is the Obama Admin Using Zimmerman Case to Federalize Local Police Forces?
For almost 20 minutes, the President of the United States used the outcome of the Zimmerman trial to push an agenda that spits in the face of how this country was founded. During his speech, he used the verdict to push the notion that our country is somehow a racist nation that needs the federal government to fix the problem.
In one of the most shocking parts of his speech, in which there were many things said that made me drop my jaw, the President suggested that he was “bouncing around the idea” of using the federal government to retrain local police forces.
Goodbye to the Constitution and State Rights
While reporting on the riots and the violence over the last week, we have purposely stayed away from talking about the specifics of the case that supposedly started these riots. In my opinion, this case is only being used to incite people into actions that help the federal government further push their agenda, and we are not going to add fuel to that fire. That being said, we will talk about what’s going on from the perspective of our freedoms, our safety and our liberty.
If the Obama Administration really cared about stopping violence, they wouldn’t be inviting violent rappers to the White House, and the President would have devoted at least a couple of minutes of today’s speech to the hundreds of Black teens who have been killed in Chicago over the last year – which is now more deadly than Afghanistan.
Instead, the Obama administration seems to be using the case to further take control of local and State police forces, and to push an agenda that includes limiting State Rights.
The specifics of Obama’s new Agenda:
The Obama administration is asking the Justice Department to retrain police departments, on both state and local levels, to do things the way the federal government deems appropriate. In President Obama’s words, “to professionalize what they are doing.”
He went on to say that it would be useful for the federal government to examine State laws to see if they encourage the type of violence that took place in the Zimmerman case.
So yet again, our federal government will use another random event to manipulate people into thinking they need the feds to step in and take control. The very fact that they are “examining state laws” is almost beyond belief, and shreds the very foundation of laws that this nation was founded upon.
