Psaki Lies To Cover-Up Biden's Fatal Defund Failures
Shady White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki flipped the facts to make Biden look better. Her filthy move to be deceptive was painfully obvious to everyone BUT her, apparently. Monday, Psaki used Democrats' new favorite argument that the crime spike began before the defund the police movement which began immediately after the death of Menipolis man George Floyd.
While Democratic state lawmakers quickly pushed to slash police forces and restrict their abilities to serve, the Nation witnessed first-hand liberal lawlessness. Democrats effectively demonized the police force and cried when crime spiked.
Psaki said crime began increasing about 18 months ago when the COVID-19 pandemic started — and not 13 months ago with the nationwide protests and riots that followed the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis cop.
“There’s been actually a rise in crime over the last five years, but really the last 18 months,” Psaki said at her daily press briefing, ahead of a speech by Biden on Wednesday on rising crime, which Psaki said the White House believes is actually linked to the availability of guns.
The mention of five years ago appears to reference an uptick in certain types of crime that some analysts called the “Ferguson effect” after nationwide unrest over the August 2014 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown during an altercation with a police officer in a St Louis suburb. That uptick was theorized to be the result of police being unwilling to enforce certain laws for fear of being vilified.
September of last year, alone, the Department of Justice announced that more than 300 individuals in 29 states and Washington, D.C., were charged for crimes committed adjacent to or under the guise of peaceful demonstrations
Last year, an alarming increase in homicides left communities — often in lockdown — reeling as officials searched for answers. That was evident at lots of news conferences as police officials and mayors in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City rolled out dire news.
At the end of 2020, Chicago police reported more than 750 murders, a jump of more than 50% compared with 2019. By mid-December, Los Angeles saw a 30% increase over the previous year with 322 homicides. There were 437 homicides in New York City by Dec. 20, nearly 40% more than the previous year.
And when did this all begin?
