REPORT: Squad Members Spent $100K on Private Security While Calling to Defund the Police

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.20.21

From Fox News:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other members of the far-left “Squad” collectively spent nearly $100,000 on private security in the third financial quarter despite promoting the defund the police movement, according to FEC records reviewed by Fox News. 

Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign spent over $10,000 on private policing with Cest Bond Collective, Three Bridges NY LLC and Tullis World Wide Protection, eclipsing Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s, D-Mass., personal security bill of almost $4,000 with Ware Security Consultants Inc., FEC records show. 

The Bronx congresswoman has been a staunch advocate of defunding law enforcement, while Pressley said she stood “ready to continue the systemic work necessary to radically reimagine a system of public safety in our country that finally censures the dignity and humanity of all.”

Both Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley are dwarfed in their security spending, though, by Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Cori Bush, D-Mo.

Omar’s FEC records revealed the defund law enforcement advocate has spent over $22,000 on private security with Aegis Logistics LLC and Lloyd Security Services while Bush took the cake by throwing down another $65,000 on private security.

The Minnesota Democrat called the Minneapolis Police Department “rotten to the root” in June of last year.

“What we are saying is the current infrastructure that exists as policing in our city should not exist anymore, and we can’t go about creating a different process with the same infrastructure in place,” Omar said at the time.

Bush’s campaign spent $64,141.26 on private security between the beginning of July and late September, the Federal Election Commission records show. The cash was dished out to a handful of firms, including Peace Security, RS&T Security Consulting, Aegis Logistics, Whole Armor Executive Protection & Security and Nathaniel Davis, whose payments are sent to the same address as her campaign headquarters.

SQUAD GOALS! Rep. Pressley Says Government Must ‘Cancel Rent, Cancel Mortgages, Cancel Student Debt’

Squad-member Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley called on the federal government to “cancel” rent, home mortgages, and student debt on social media Tuesday as the country re-opens amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Cancel rent. Cancel mortgage. Cancel student debt,” posted Pressley on Twitter.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused millions of followers on social media over the weekend; bizarrely calling for the suspension of all mortgages across America because “evictions are about power.”

“The way that Congress gave that money to these corporations was in a way that was almost, like, a down payment on a loan… What if we use that same instrument to suspend all mortgage payments in the United States?” asked Ocasio-Cortez.

“Then you can actually cancel rent! We have the plan! Evictions at their core are about power, it’s about how people use certain degrees of power over the vulnerable! We need people power!” she added.

SQUAD GOALS: AOC, Omar Demand Student Debt, Foreclosures, Banning CEO Bonuses in Coronavirus Stimulus

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.25.20

Members of the ‘Squad’ demanded a series of far-left proposals be included in the Congressional relief package to help Coronavirus victims this week; asking for the cancellation of student debt, banning of evictions, and prohibition of “executive bonuses” in the plan.

“Any rescue package must:
1) Cancel student debt
2) Fund losses for small businesses and local governments
3) Ban evictions and foreclosures
4) Ban stock buybacks and executive bonuses
We need a groundswell of support for these critical measures!” posted Omar on social media.

“The developments of this Senate relief bill are concerning. We are hearing lots of vague statements, but not a single member of Congress has seen actual bill text. It seems to give a *HALF TRILLION DOLLARS* away to big corporations, w/ few worker protections. Half a trillion,” added Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

The White House and leaders in the US Senate agreed to a $2 trillion stimulus package to help businesses impacted by the Coronavirus Wednesday; unveiling a sweeping bipartisan plan to shore-up the economy and protect American workers.

“The White House and Senate leaders of both parties announced agreement early Wednesday on an unprecedented $2 trillion emergency bill to rush sweeping aid to businesses, workers and a health care system slammed by the coronavirus pandemic,” reports the Associated Press.

“To the American people, we say, big help, quick help is on the way,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The proposal now heads to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” said Speaker Pelosi.

“After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic,” said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “It will rush new resources onto the front lines of our nation’s health care fight. And it will inject trillions of dollars of cash into the economy as fast as possible to help Americans workers, families, small businesses and industries make it through this disruption and emerge on the other side ready to soar.”
