Blue Lives Matter again

President Trump issued three executive orders on Thursday timed with the installation of Jeff Sessions as attorney general. These orders will make America safe again.

The first is the "Presidential Executive Order on a Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety."

Crime was on a decades long downswing thanks to mandatory minimum sentencing and an increase in gun ownership and rights.

That is until Black Lives Matter tried to burn down Ferguson, Missouri, a haven black families fled to as a means of escaping violence in St. Louis. Police in Baltimore, Chicago, and other Democratic Party strongholds backed off (under orders from City Hall in some cases) and murders rose.

Backing the police again should help reduce crime again.

The second executive order is the "Presidential Executive Order on Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking":
These groups are drivers of crime, corruption, violence, and misery. In particular, the trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs. Likewise, the trafficking and smuggling of human beings by transnational criminal groups risks creating a humanitarian crisis. These crimes, along with many others, are enriching and empowering these organizations to the detriment of the American people.
This is a recognition that we must work with other nations to battle crimes, such as pedophilia.

The last is the "Presidential Executive Order on Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers."

It is the most important one:
Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to:
(a) enforce all Federal laws in order to enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, and thereby all Americans;
(b)  develop strategies, in a process led by the Department of Justice (Department) and within the boundaries of the Constitution and existing Federal laws, to further enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers; and
(c) pursue appropriate legislation, consistent with the Constitution's regime of limited and enumerated Federal powers, that will define new Federal crimes, and increase penalties for existing Federal crimes, in order to prevent violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers
Then it goes into implementation and other boring stuff.

All three executive orders (in fact, all the XO's or as the media calls them EO's) are here.

Policywise, the third one sends the most powerful message. Mess with a cop, you are messing with the feds.

  1. It sounds good to me, but some of the groups that believe contrariwise may see this as a provocation and attempt to put it to the test. Those ACLU lawyers just love getting Nazi collaborator George Soros' money to defend all of the "innocent, peaceful protesters" that he is so good at funding. - Elric

  2. After 8 years, we finally have an Attorney General that will enforce the laws.

  3. Section 1c should be used to create legislation that targets someone like George Soros, who funds organizations that use his money to engage in rioting, violence, and criminal assault. Make him liable for the criminal activities of the organizations he funds. If he thinks he's untouchable by the law because it's only the people he funds that engage in crimes the authorities can prosecute, pass laws that make him an indictable accessory before the fact whenever his minions engage in a pattern of crimes that threaten the civil rights of other Americans.

    1. From what I've seen over the years, RICO is only used against anti-abortion organizations. Shouldn't be, but it seems that, excepting Giuliani's tenure in New York City, that's about all it's been used for.

  4. "All three executive orders (in fact, all the XO's or as the media calls them EO's) are here."

    And there's the rub: the media calls them EO's to give them "Moral Equivalency" to Obama's off-the-wall Executive "Pen & Phone" Orders.
