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.”

Rand Paul Says Gun Control Bill Was Kept ‘Secret’ And Senators Not Allowed Time To Read It

“There doesn’t appear to be a willingness or time provided to read, understand, debate or amend this bill.”

As the Senate passed a gun control bill this week with fifteen Republicans siding with Democrats, Senator Rand Paul noted that no one had time to even read the legislation because it was “assembled in secret.”

“Unfortunately, this legislation was assembled as many are — in secret, absent well-placed leaks to journalists,” Paul tweeted, adding “There doesn’t appear to be a willingness or time provided to read, understand, debate or amend this bill.”

The Senator further vowed to try to introduce amendments to the bill to “correct the constitutional deficiencies.”

The Senate voted 64-34 Tuesday night to advance the bill. 

How can any elected official sincerely decide on legislation without reading it or debating it?

In a further interview Paul noted “They didn’t even give us the actual bill to vote on it. They gave us a blank piece of paper and said, ‘Vote on this and trust us as to what the legislation will be when it comes forward and trust that there’ll be an actual amendment process.'”

Paul further stated that he takes issue with the so called ‘red flag laws’, whereby law enforcement are sanctioned to remove firearms from a person who they believe may be a danger to themselves or others.

There are no federal level red flag laws in the current legislation moving into the House, but it does propose $750 million in kickback grants to states that implement their own.

“These are called ex-parte hearings where a judge hears an accusation. In some states, the accusation is actually from an anonymous source. So under no condition would I think that your second amendment rights should be taken away with an accusation by an anonymous person,” Paul urged.

The Senator added, “I could be persuaded to vote for some aspects of this bill, but you’d have to have an amendment process to try to cure the constitutional deficiencies.”

He continued, “I don’t think you can take guns away without letting someone have a lawyer and without letting someone actually be accused of a crime in court in public. You have to be notified of what you’re being accused of. You can’t just have your gun rights taken away without even having a lawyer present.”

    Videos: White House Has Given No Updates On Baby Formula Crisis For Over A Month

    Embarrassing and shameful

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has repeatedly told reporters for over a month that she has no updates or knowledge on the ongoing baby formula shortage crisis.

    Jake Schneider of RNC Research posted the following thread of videos that shows Jean-Pierre struggling to provide any information on what is going on at all.

    In addition, other Biden officials when asked about the supply chain shortage have admitted they have no clue what is going on. The infant formula shortage has been ongoing since last year and was known to be a serious issue as far back as February, but was dismissed as not being a ‘top level crisis’.

    Biden himself says he didn’t know anything about it until APRIL.

    Shelves are still empty and formula is having to be flown in from the UK and Europe.

    Embarrassing and shameful.

    Video: Biden Snaps At Reporter Who Asked About Coming Recession

    Has to be ushered away by his daughter

    Correction: An earlier version of this report suggested Biden referred to his granddaughter as his deceased son. While he has done that previously, a clean up of the audio confirms this time he said “my son Beau’s oldest daughter”.

    Joe Biden, who is on the beach in Delaware for some reason, snapped at a reporter who asked him about recent assertions by a host of economists that the U.S. is heading for a recession, and had to be ushered away by members of his family.

    During the exchange, the reporter asked specifically about a report in the Wall Street Journal on a survey that found economists believe there is a 44 percent chance of the country entering a recession.

    Biden snapped at the reporter, “The majority of them aren’t saying that. Come on, don’t make things up, okay? Now you sound like a Republican politician.”

    Then he bizarrely stated “I’m joking. That was a joke, but all kidding aside, I don’t think it is.”

    Following the testy exchange, Biden’s daughter and granddaughter eventually pulled him away and told reporters they couldn’t ask anymore questions.

    Biden put his arm around his granddaughter android “This is my son Beau’s oldest daughter. She’s trying to tell me DAD, Grandpa, Pop, keep going, you promised me we’d walk.”

    His granddaughter also told reporters that Biden had been doing puzzles.

    The incident came a day after Biden face planted off his bike right in front of the world’s press.

    The man is clearly in severe mental decline.
