January 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – As Democrat Kamala Harris prepares to assume the office of Vice President of the United States, a bail fund she promoted for Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters over the summer is refusing to share records that would shed light on how many violent criminals it got released from prison.
In June, Harris promoted the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) to “help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.” The group says it wants to “maximize the number of people we can release from cages through the payment of criminal and immigration bonds.”

Just the News reported that it has attempted to obtain a “full accounting of the individuals bailed out by the fund last year,” but MFF simply referred it to county jail rosters, which “are not easily accessible,” and refused to answer if it keeps its own records.
The issue is of concern due in part to reporting by The Washington Post and local media outlet KMSP, which identified among MFF’s beneficiaries a rioter accused of shooting at police officers, a convicted repeat sex offender, and a woman accused of killing her friend.
For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.
Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.
And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.
Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.
January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.
January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.
(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite.

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.
Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.
And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

“The group's unwillingness to provide records of whom it helps bail out of prison, coupled with the remoteness and relative inaccessibility of those records within local jail files, has rendered opaque a critical accountability metric at a time when the U.S. is grappling with the effects of politically inspired violence,” Just the News reporter Daniel Payne wrote.
During the span of several months last year, Americans watched BLM protests lead to arson, looting, and violence through major cities across the country in response to the death of a Minnesota black man at the hands of a white police officer. The officer was quickly charged with murder, but the incident still revived BLM’s narrative of “systemic racism” in law enforcement and throughout American society more generally.
As detailed by the U.S. Justice Department, New York shootings “have been on the rise since looting and protests began on or about May 28, 2020” (a 177 percent increase in July from the year before, and a 166 percent increase in August from the year before); prosecutors in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx refused to prosecute crimes stemming from the protests; city and state leaders “have forcefully rejected federal law enforcement support”; and city leaders “cut $1 billion from NYPD’s FY21 budget” during a time of “increased unrest, gun violence, and property damage,” causing “cancellation of the new police recruiting class, cuts to overtime spending, and the transfer of certain police functions, including school safety, out of the NYPD.”
Portland, the DOJ continued, saw “100 consecutive nights of protests marred by vandalism, chaos, and even killing,” including arson, injuries to police, and a 140 percent spike in shootings from the previous year. Amid it all, the city “cut $15 million from the police bureau, eliminating 84 positions” including the Gun Violence Reduction Team and emergency response personnel,” and Mayor Ted Wheeler also rejected federal law enforcement assistance.
And in Seattle, officials notoriously “permitted anarchists and activists to seize six square blocks of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood” and renamed it the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) or “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” (CHOP). Police were “ordered to abandon their precinct within the CHOP,” leading to a 525 percent increase in crimes such as homicide, robbery, and assault. While all this was going on, city and state leaders also refused federal law enforcement.
Incoming Democrat President Joe Biden eventually condemned the violence after pressure to do so, but endorsed its underlying grievances by claiming that “systemic racism” is “not just in law enforcement” but “in everything we do.” Harris, his running mate, said in June that the protests were “a beautiful sight” that were “not gonna let up. And they should not.”
