Police officers have been under fire for a year from critics who lay accusations of systemic racism on the entire professions. But as politicians and activists debate defunding the police and releasing convicted criminals, cops must still face the day-to-day risks to their lives that often get dismissed by their political opponents.
Case-in-point: Two NYPD officers were ambushed by an armed assailant last November, suffering gunshot wounds before taking down their attacker. The incident was captured on a dramatic bodycam video which was released today.
This is why police are always on edge

It is unclear whether there will be protests and riots from Black Lives Matter and Antifa “activists” following the release of the video. In the past, we would never have to wonder whether the video of a shooting of an armed assailant firing on police officers could spark riots, but these are crazy times. The shooting of Jacob Blake, who was armed with a knife, prompted the burning of Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
According to ABC7NY:
The NYPD released body camera footage Friday of a November 2020 shooting that shows the suspect in a domestic violence case entering a home in Queens and opening fire on two officers and his alleged victim.
Both officers — Joseph Murphy and Christopher Wells — were wounded but were able to return fire, killing the gunman, identified as 41-year-old Rondell Goppy. The incident happened around 12:45 p.m. on November 24, at a home on 179th Street near 146th Road in Springfield Gardens.
Authorities say a 41-year-old woman had walked into the 105th Precinct to report the domestic violence case, and the officers then accompanied her back to the residence to collect her belongings. The video shows them talking with the woman in her living room, when all of the sudden, Goppy appears at the front door and opens fire without saying a word.
He fired 11 shots in total, striking Officer Wells in the thigh and Officer Murphy in both of his hands. The officers fired 24 shots, striking Goppy several times. Law enforcement officials say it’s a miracle they survived.

“This video is chilling and difficult to watch, but it makes one thing clear: Police Officers Wells and Murphy saved lives,” PBA President Patrick Lynch said. “They saved the lives of that domestic violence victim and her children, and they saved each other’s lives – all because they had the training, skill and courage of New York City police officers. For anyone questioning whether we need police officers responding to these types of situations, this video is the answer.”
Wells is a 14-year NYPD veteran, while Murphy has been with the force since 2015.
“They saved that woman’s life,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said after the shooting. “I want to be crystal clear. Because these officers were there, that woman is alive.”
The female victim was not injured and can be seen on the video running for cover. The officers were released from the hospital on Thanksgiving morning to bagpipes and the applause of fellow officers.
There are those on the left who would recommended that incidents such as this should be handled by social workers instead of cops. After all, the victim was going to an empty house to collect her belongings. Had the political wishes of many Democrats been in place during this incident, it’s almost certain that everyone involved other than the armed assailant would be dead.
Police officers aren’t perfect. Nobody is. But it behooves us to remember the pressures they go through and the risks they accept on our behalf every day. Next time you see a cop, thank them.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
