The numbers are in and most Americans don’t want to defund police
According to a recent poll by Fox News, over 60% of Americans don’t support the “defund the police” movement.
Funding for police departments has come under scrutiny after the most recent string of police shootings. The top cities in the US have already moved to reduce their overall spending for their police departments, though the aggregate drop was only 5%.
Most Americans are more concerned about the economy, gun laws, and health care. And even Democrats are split on the issue of police funding, with just over 50% of registered Democrats saying they support defunding or reducing police department budgets.
Most Americans understand that the issue of policing is a complicated one. Wanting reform within police culture and demanding that all police departments get defunded are two different things entirely.
But, as usual, the mainstream media has attempted to whip the public into a panic to push a political agenda.
“This critical legislation will put an end to the government’s practice of buying its way around the Bill of Rights by purchasing the personal and location data of everyday Americans,” said Rand Paul in describing the purpose of the bill.
This is definitely the type of bipartisan cooperation we need to see more of among our lawmakers.

INTRODUCING… the Win-Both-Ways Trade
When I left the Chicago Board Options Exchange years ago…
I brought the top strategies with me and went to work for everyday investors.
My first 3,765 trade recommendations averaged a 12.7% gain every three days…
12.7% – every three days – that’s what Goldman Sachs hopes to achieve every THREE YEARS.
But now, for the first time, I’m revealing my No. 1 secret for averaging nearly 3X more money…
Than my lifetime mark.
I’m talking about averaging single-day gains of 34.58%… with individual wins of up to 136%… 178%… and 188%… all in 24 hours…
See why I’m calling this technique “the Win-Both-Ways Trade.”
And why Charles Schwab is calling it “a breakout strategy.”
How one California woman has changed over 80 lives
For the past 34 years, Linda Owens has cared for a total of 81 infants as a foster mother.
The Hayward, California resident, a retired grocery manager, has dedicated her life to helping little ones in the foster system have a safe and comforting home.
“It’s a challenging job but very rewarding. “This is what God’s handed me a gift to do,” said Owens.
Owens says she’s loved taking care of babies since she was a child and couldn’t imagine doing anything else with her life.
You can be sure that the lives of those 81 babies have been changed, in some way, thanks to Linda Owens.
