Members of the So Called ‘squad’ of extreme leftist Democrats spent thousands of dollars on hiring private security while simultaneously calling for defunding and even abolishing the police, a report highlights.

According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York), Ilhan Omar (Minnesota), Cori Bush (Missouri) and Ayanna Pressley (Massachusetts) privately built up their own protection forces, while telling the public that they shouldn’t rely on police protection, and that police departments should be defunded because of ‘institutional racism’.

The Daily Caller picked up on the filings, noting that the Democrats Reps. spent “nearly $70,000” on private security from January to March this year.

The records show that Ocasio-Cortez paid one company based out of Brooklyn, New York, $9,000 for 3 months of security consulting. She then also spent more than $24,000 on ‘security’ on January 25, and almost $4,000 on ‘security services’ on January 19, with a further payment of $849.22 for ‘security services’ on February 2.

According to the records, Rep. Omar spent $3,103.61 on private security, with Pressley spending $4,186.75 on “security Services,” and Cori Bush reported to have spent $30,000 on security.

Bush also refused to answer questions Wednesday about the funds:

All of these Reps. have called for defunding the police:

“Defunding police means defunding police,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a June 30 statement, noting “It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”

Pressley, along with another squad member Rashida T’laib introduced the BREATHE Act to defund police departments last year. T’laib has rabidly called not only for defunding but ABOLISHING the police.

Also last Summer, Omar said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Minneapolis has to “rebuild” its police department as it is “rotten to the root” and impossible to reform.

While the squad amass their own private security and call for abolishing the police, the vast majority of black Americans are diametrically opposed to such action.

As always, it’s one rule for them and another for everyone else.

Last year after unrest and violence targeting police, Harvard university Professor Roland Fryer urged that defunding the police would cause more loss of life, citing figures showing that there are “450 excess homicides per year” when police are not able to do their jobs proficiently.

“Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” professor Fryer wrote in an email to the College Fix.

Fryer has recently authored a research paper titled “Policing the Police: The Impact of “Pattern-or-Practice Investigations on Crime,” noting that police are less present when ‘viral incidents’ occur, meaning crime, including homicides increase… a lot.

Last year it was reported by the New York Times that Gun violence is up 358% in New York City since June 2019 as police are being stripped of resources in Democrat run cities nationwide.

The explosion in gun violence dovetailed with the disbanding of NYPD anti-crime units, a decision that meant around 600 plainclothes officers were taken off targeted raids and reassigned.

In addition, Democrat imposed “reforms” have meant that around 40% of people arrested on gun possession charges were released without bail in 2019.

Figures also show that other Democrat run cities including Chicago and Minneapolis have experienced a massive uptick in gun violence.

Despite the crime spike, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously passed a resolution to replace the police department with a “community-led public safety system.”

Video: Pathetic Psaki Blames UK Prime Minister For Biden Not Answering Press Questions

“He called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

Following yesterday’s demand from the White House press pool for an explanation about why Joe Biden will not answer any questions, Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to blame UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson for not alerting Biden’s team that he intended to take questions during an Oval office meeting.

Psaki’s pathetic response came after CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe confronted her on press corps members being routinely ushered away from Biden.

O’Keefe noted that “the British Prime Minister in the American Oval Office called on British reporter, and then when American reporters tried to call on the American president, we were escorted out.”

Psaki responded “I think our relationship with the United Kingdom and with prime minister Johnson is so strong and abiding, we’ll be able to move beyond this,” adding “But he called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

Oh the horror, a sitting leader of a country daring to answer some reporters’ questions off the cuff, without a bunch of handlers herding them away.

Watch:

Later in the press conference, Psaki claimed that Biden had answered questions “135 times” recently, but indicated that Biden would hold a SECOND formal press conference at some point.

Psaki said “The president knows that he was elected not just to get the pandemic under control and put people back to work, but protect our democracy and stand up for what’s right and be transparent,” adding “Certainly part of that is engaging with all of you. I would note that he answered questions 135 times leading up to September, three times last week.”

As we have pointed out, Biden’s handlers are intent on tightly controlling his interaction with anyone outside the White House bubble, even muting his mic and aggressively yelling at reporters to get away from him.

A week ago, Republican Senator James Risch demanded to know who is in charge of controlling when the President is allowed to be heard, noting during a Senate hearing that “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

“Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked.

Tweeting out the video, leftists insisted the claims were ‘bizarre,’ ‘ridiculous’ and ‘absurd’:

    White House Reporters Have Launched ‘Formal Objection’ About Biden Refusing To Answer Questions

    Pathetic scene in Oval Office as British PM takes press questions while Biden’s handlers refuse to allow him to speak

    CBS News reported Tuesday that the press pool of White House reporters have launched a formal objection over the fact that Joe Biden refuses to answer any questions, with reporters routinely being yelled down and physically pushed away by Biden’s handlers.

    The revelation came after an embarrassing scene in the Oval Office with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson answering questions, but Biden not being allowed to by aides.

    Watch:

    Johnson took the three questions from British reporters

    CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe said that “Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said.”

    CBS radio correspondent Steve Portnoy later reported that “The entire editorial component of the US pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office.”

    Portnoy, also president of the White House Correspondents Association, added that the complaint also extended to the fact “that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the Southern Border. Biden’s answer could not be heard over the shouting.”

    “Psaki was unaware that the incident has occurred and suggested that she was not  in a position to offer an immediate solution,” Portnoy continued, adding “Your pooler requested a press conference. Psaki suggested the president takes questions several times a week.”

    In addition, National Review notes that after Biden’s UN speech yesterday, French reporter Kethevane Gorjestani “was asked by a very startled Australian reporter whether WH wranglers were always so strict about ushering the pool out without questions.”

    The pathetic display is a continuation of the way Biden’s handlers have been acting since even before he took office, shooing away reporters, giving Biden strict instructions on who he can take questions from, and even muting his mic when he goes off script.

    A week ago, Republican Senator James Risch demanded to know who is in charge of controlling when the President is allowed to be heard, noting during a Senate hearing that “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked.

    AOC, Omar Spread Fake News Claims That Border Patrol Is Whipping Migrants

    More idiocy spread by Democrats to distract from hellish border crisis

    Radical leftist Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar spent Monday night spreading fake claims that Border Patrol agents are whipping Haitian migrants.

    The claim was made after footage emerged of agents on horseback confronting migrants on the Southern border.

    Far-left corporate media outlets such as VICE ran headlines like “US Border Agents Are Removing Haitian Migrants Using Horses and Whips,” and the claims were repeated on Twitter:

    Eventually, ‘Squad’ members AOC and Omar got in on the act:

    And then, the White House chimed in, with serial question non-answerer Jen Psaki replying to frothing ‘reporters’, “I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it was acceptable or appropriate,” but admitting “I don’t have the full context. I can’t imagine what context would make that appropriate.”

    How about the context of a full on invasion fuelled by your own administration?

    Many, including the Border Patrol themselves, pointed out that the straps seen in the footage are not ‘whips’, they are horse reigns and there is no evidence that they were being used on migrants whatsoever. They are used to steer and control horses:

    The latest fake controversy comes as Border Patrol is attempting to deal with record numbers of migrants at the border in scenes resembling a third world country:
