OPINION: Boxer was “Mugged by Reality;” Trump Explains What Reality is All About

boxer

WASHINGTON, DC, Aug 4 — We didn’t hear her Democratic colleagues decrying the fact that Barbara Boxer had been mugged. Nor did we hear the liberal mainstream media condemning what happened to the 80-year-old former Senator last week when she was savagely assaulted in broad daylight in Oakland, CA. Fortunately, Ms. Boxer was not badly hurt, but the assailant stole her cell phone and got away.

Interestingly, According to Fox News, MSNBC, NBC, and ABC have ignored the story entirely while CBS has only given it seven seconds.

However, CNN’s Erin Burnett gave the story an important play and, in doing so, acknowledged the fact that President Donald Trump may have been the first public figure to issue a statement about the incident. It was a rare thing for such a liberal network.

Perhaps Ms. Boxer’s former colleagues in Congress and their sycophant news outlets didn’t want to bring attention to the fact that progressive socialist lawmakers who have infiltrated the Democratic Party are responsible for the surge in violent crime that is sweeping the Country with their calls to defund the police. Oakland, of course, did just that last month, despite appeals from the town’s police and its mayor.

It seems the cops were promised a $27 million budget increase, but the City Council diverted more than half of that amount — $18.5 million, to be exact. That means police jobs would be lost at a time when the city is struggling to deal with a rising crime rate. But fear not, the funds will be put to good use: to fund its Department of Violence Prevention, which “applies a public health approach to violence prevention.” The police would have been able to hire 50 police officers to patrol the streets. Good luck with talking criminals into giving up their lives of crime.

According to the New York Post, “In Oakland, murders were up 47 percent in 2020 over 2019; so far, 2021 looks to be much worse than 2020.”

Meanwhile, it appeared for a while there that the only voice of reason who wanted to talk about Ms. Boxer’s encounter with a mugger was that of President Donald Trump. He was quick to bring attention to her attack. The former Senator took her time to react to Mr. Trump’s acknowledgment of her firsthand, unfortunate encounter with violent crime, and her “thanks” to the former president was decidedly ungracious.

“He has no standing,” she said.

But Mr. Trump does have standing and had lots to say:

“We must give power back to police or America will never be safe. We cannot let Communist Democrats destroy our great cities. If we don’t stop them, our communities and our Country will be lost forever.

“Today, it is the least secure in our history with criminals illegally flooding into our Country—many spreading COVID into our communities—and other countries’ prisons being emptied into our neighborhoods. America needs law and order, not defunding the police. We need our police back. America should and can be safe!”

A Washington insider reminded AMAC News that five decades or so ago, the liberal position on crime led to a huge increase in the numbers of crimes. Just like Ms. Boxer and her like-minded associates today, back in the day, they also had a better way to deal with criminals. They may not have been as anxious as they are today to remove the police from the equation. But they embraced the notion that criminals are motivated by “root social causes” instead of anger, avarice, and an appetite for lawless behavior.

As a result, the people wind up with Departments of Violence Prevention, leaving them to fend for themselves with crime on the rise yet again.

We need to defund ALL of the security needs of the politicians so they experience what ordinary Americans have to deal with.

I keep wondering what would have happened if the police had captured the chap who mugged Boxer, stole her phone and left her in a heap on the street? Would he have gotten bail? Would he even been charged? Would he have been given a “good talking to” by the social workers? Inquiring minds want to know.

First they would ask if he was a Dem or Rep; the next step is in their playbook. Customarily there would be no charges for the Dems perp, only perhaps a slap on the back and a verbal good job . The Republican would be in jail for 40 yrs/no bail.

Exactly right but the people should be blowing up over all this biased treatment. What the left is doing to our Country is sickening. We should all be in the streets getting loud!

Apparently Ms. Boxer is so entrenched in her animosity and left-wing ideology that she cannot even accept Donald Trump’s acknowledgement of her mugging or that her own party and the MSM never said a word! So, where is their ‘transparency’ and openness??? What a bunch of liars and deceivers. Way to go Donald Trump. You are still a hero; thank you.

Plus the shooter of a house robber goes to prison for defending his family. It is terrible how the left defines police, yet they have security for themselves and their family. It is just crazy!!

If called upon for jury duty in a self defense case, take it as an opportunity to support those defending self or property. I was amazed that more looters were not shot. But unfortunately those defending their property would have been in trouble.

What Boxer got was ‘justice’. A fitting response to the Left’s long-term committment to division, disharmony, strife, and authoritarianism.

Like all other terrorists, they see our high road as weakness. This leaves us with only one choice, we must show unified strength.

The constitution does not require any kind of background examination for anyone seeking public office or those being appointed by someone in office. To carry a gun for protection, you need to comply with all sorts of regulations, etc. They all need background checks. Lier’s should all have a date with the guillotine. We are not tough enough on crime.

Trump is right “We must give power back to police or America will not be safe” Not sure if his comment of COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS is true of all in that party & just adds to division in this country. This story is about a Senator, but how about all of the innocent people in cities all over the US that are being attacked. They are not Senators , but they are American citizens. How could any city think it will be safer when they cut funds & people in police dept.

When stupidity raises it ugly head it easy to spot, it comes in several form, but looks the same and it all has Communism written all over it, but, comes with several different names,
it has titles like Democrat, the Left, Woke, BLM ( Burn, Loot, Murder) ANTIFA (Arrogant, Nerds, Turds Idiots, Freaks and A##holes), Planned Parenthood, these groups spread the same lies and are given legitimacy by a failed News system with labels like CBS, ABC, NBC, MSDNC, AND CNN, AND 90 % of print media, has no Credibility at all and is only fit to line bird cages or in a pinch can be used in out house. the left will never admit their failures and we must remind each other that the above groups can not be trusted for anything dealing with America greatness.
GOD SAVE AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!

Best comment I’ve seen in a long time! Wish more people would wake up and see what is going on in our country. I shake my head all the time about all the extreme hate coming from the people on the left toward people who don’t believe how they do. If you point out things to them they go “bat crap crazy”. No logic what so ever especially if you question ANYTHING about the jab. TOO many unanswered questions and too many crazy people involved.

Boxer being mugged is perfect poetic justice. I feel no sympathy for leftist socialists and communists who have so little empathy for the safety of fellow Americans that they believe in defunding the police.

Glad I was not born in a liberal state. Everything seems to be exploding, like crime, on the West left coast and the East left coast. I’m in the middle of the country where things are, pretty much, low crime normal. I’ve been to much of the rest of the country and am always glad to be home. (Oblamer didn’t win a single county in the state either time,)

Maybe Ms. Boxer was just unknowingly caught up in an episode of Bully Beat Down. She is, after all, a leftist bully.

I guess I’m a bad person, for I take joy in every bad incident that befalls these evil, America-hating, socialist/communistic, globalist demoncrats! Joe-tard and Harris are in a big hurry to destroy America, and occasionally we get to see one of their own meet Karma/Justice.

I shared this story to Facebook but it doesn’t show there. It only invites people to join AMAC. The story should show first, then offer a subscription toward the bottom of the story. I won’t share anything else.

Never advocate or call for violence against anyone. Karma catches all.
