Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Named PBA’s Person Of The Year

The largest union representing New York City police officers has awarded its Man of the Year honor to Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

Annual honors have often gone to elected leaders or lawmen with New York ties, but association President Patrick Lynch said Sheriff Clarke’s unflinching support of law enforcement during a time when many are critical of or second-guessing the work of police officers made him a prime choice for the honor.

“Sheriff Clarke is a passionate and vocal defender of police officers, at a time when our job is more difficult and dangerous than ever before,” Mr. Lynch said. “That is exactly what the PBA does for New York City police officers, so it has been encouraging to hear Sheriff Clarke make the same case on a national stage. We should be hearing that type of support from elected leaders in both parties and at all levels of government.”

Clarke was first elected in 2002 after spending 24 years with the Milwaukee Police Department.

He said he was humbled and honored to receive the designation.

“I accept this award on behalf of every law enforcement officer who serves and protects their community with integrity, honor, courage and commitment throughout the United States,” Sheriff Clarke said.

    TRUMP & THE GOP and it’s entire slate of candidates could win in November with a landslide in every state if the GOP will truly pass repeal, replace laws and totally eliminate tons of expensive, useless laws and regulations BEFORE THE ELECTIONS.

    “To End Crime And Poverty in the US, FIX THE GHETTOES” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clark said.

    THE FIX to save freedom, dignity, opportunity, lives, the US economy and slash costs by $trillions annually with compassion and fiscal responsibility can be simple and as fast as Wall Street was bailed out 8 years ago.

    SEND $200. EVERY FRIDAY TO EVERY CITIZEN OVER SIXTEEN AS A UNIVERSAL WEEKLY LIFETIME CASH PAYMENT for all US citizens who signup rich, poor, young or old.

    REPEAL OBAMACARE AND ADD A FREE GOVERNMENT HEALTHCARE option to offer everyone two choices.

    1. Use a new totally free government healthcare system no insurance, copays or restrictions dental, eye care, medications everything is free period and paid for with sales taxes collected inexpensively and painlessly from 50million tourist, 30million non citizens and everyone shopping in the US using a new FairTax HR25, S155 sales tax only system.


    2. Spend your own money to buy insurance and healthcare from zillions of non government providers who will be competing to sell you unlimited selections of insurance and healthcare services.

    Businesses, individuals, states, and local governments will no longer be forced to pay for or be involved with healthcare, welfare, minimum wage laws, Social Security, unemployment insurance, government pensions nor any government programs.

    Individuals and businesses in the US will never again be forced to file nor pay any taxes or forced to buy insurance or pay for healthcare or any assistance programs..

    Everyone and all business in the US will instantly be better off.

    Doing business will be easier and more profitable in the US than any place else on the planet and the US will have the worlds greatest jobs magnet again (COMPETITIVE FREE ENTERPRISE) to employe millions of Americans big time in private sector jobs from the guy with a pick up truck, the smallest mom and pops to the industrial giants.

    The US will be flooded with money and industries flocking here from around the world as the US instantly becomes the worlds greatest tax haven and the easiest and most profitable place on the planet to do business.


    ABOLISH ALL MINIMUM WAGE LAWS for businesses when WEEKLY CASH PAYMENTS and TRUMPCARE the new free government healthcare option are operational nationwide in 2017.


    Over $2trillion, maybe as much as $5trillion, of US funds are parked outside of the US in other countries in the hands of people who really know how to use big money to build big companies and provide funding for zillions of new ventures of every size in every state.


    Allow US citizens and everyone in the world to deposit, invest and earn wages, investment income and profits privately, secretly and tax free in the US with the new Fair Tax HR25, S155, sales tax collections only systems.


    1. SMART, HONEST SIMPLE “unfair low cost advantages” efficiently managed (that President Obama and legislators tragically did not allow to be used 8 years ago for ObamaCare) are the, magic simple silver bullets, for fixing everything.

    2. Obama or TRUMP can sign the new REPEAL, REPLACE or ELIMINATE laws, regulations and policies in January 2017.

    3. Hopefully the safety net of a basic income will help develop prudent lifestyles for lots of people and if you earn a ton of money you still can keep your weekly UBI payments. UBI will be like having a trust fund, a steady job or a rich, wise and patient grandmother who loves you very much and makes sure that you dependably receive your “safety net or life style enhancement money” every week, whether you are naughty or nice, stupid or prudent your UBI money will always arrive for you to spend anyway you want to it’s ok, it’s your money to do whatever you want to do and your next UBI cash payment will always be there again next week, until you say stop or die and go to heaven.

    4. Government services in the US will instantly become more generous, simple and compassionate and far superior for citizens to use and be more fiscally resposible and cost effective to fund than anything being provided in the US or anyplace else in the world today.

    5. Tons of local, states and federal employees could retire today and lock the doors of their unneeded agencies and go home to do no more harm or use their skills in private sector pursuits.

    6. $2tillion can be slashed from the $6trillion spent last year for overhead and compliance costs in the names of healthcare and welfare in 2015.

    7. A $trillion more annually can be slashed from taxes, compliance and lost opportunity costs.
