More than 100 law enforcement agencies are reportedly pulling-out of their arranged security agreements for the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee; citing the party’s demand they avoid certain crowd control methods such as the use of non-lethal force.
“The police departments were part of a collective of outside agencies poised to send officers to secure the event, which will run from Aug. 17-20 and where Joe Bidenis expected to be named the party’s presidential nominee. The action comes after the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission directed Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to change department policy to restrict the use of tear gas and pepper spray,” reports Fox News.

ABOUT TIME: DNC Severs Ties with Women’s March Over Accusations of Anti-Semitism, Homophobia
The Democratic National Committee joined the growing chorus of progressive organizations rapidly severing their ties with the Women’s March Organization; citing widespread reports of anti-Semitism and homophobia throughout the national group.
“The Democratic National Committee has joined the list of liberal organizations dropping their affiliations with the Women’s March, just days before the progressive group’s third annual march on Washington, DC,” writes the Washington Times.
“The DNC will not serve as a sponsor and no DNC leaders will speak at Saturday’s march, a Democratic source confirmed to the Washington Times, after sending two prominent officials to address the 2018 Women’s March, including DNC chair Tom Perez,” adds the report.
Women’s March founder Tamika Mallory doubled-down on her previous comments regarding controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan this week; calling the notorious anti-Semite “the greatest of all time.”

BILL’S BETRAYAL: Clinton Reportedly Told DNC BOSS to Stay Away from ‘Bernie Folks’
NBC News political reporter Jonathan Allen raised eyebrows throughout the Democratic Party this week, saying former President Bill Clinton instructed DNC boss Tom Perez to “not let the party go to Bernie Sanders folks.”
Allen was speaking with C-SPAN when he made the surprising comment; saying Perez was in the middle of a Democratic tug-of-war between the Clinton camp and the progressive wing led by Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“The DNC is unpopular with its own base,” Allen said. “Roughly half the Democratic Party felt like the DNC was unfairly tipping the scales in the last presidential election trying to get Hillary Clinton nominated, trying to hurt Bernie Sanders.”
“Tom Perez is in the middle of that and he’s gotten very clear instructions from Bill Clinton not to let the party go to the Bernie Sanders folks,” he added.
