Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden struck a unifying tone with mourners during his virtual remarks at George Floyd's funeral in Houston on Tuesday as Floyd's death sparks calls for racial equality and police reform across the country.We can't turn away. We must not turn away," Biden said in a video address from his home in Delaware to the Fountain of Praise church in Houston. “We cannot leave this moment thinking we can once again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul, from systemic abuse that still plagues American life," he continued.

Why is this not considered a photo op for Biden?

Sure we can. We will need to wait for the months long trial, but at this point, looking at the only actual FACTS that are released to the public, the autopsy, it looks like a illegal drug overdose caused respiratory distress and then a panicked fight with police caused a heart attack along with the depressed respiration from the high levels of illegal opiates in his system.

Hey, hollow-head Biden. What evidence do you have that racism was involved?

He wasn’t there. He never intended to be there. It was important to Ben Crump, Al Sharpton and Biden’s campaign that he NOT be there but that he do a scripted, staged video because no one knows what he is going to say or do these days. How would it have looked for him to have his minder/coach Jilly standing by him and guiding his moves and trying to head of any of his gaffes? What will he ever do in live debates? Or do they have a plan for that, too?

Oh yes the gentle giant who spent his life on humanitarian works, a volunteer at a hospice care center, planning on going to law school but it probably would have been at the prison law library. Put in his free time working at the local food bank and tutored school kids in mathematics. Always willing to give all he could to others. Has been clean and sober good years and was studying to become a drug and alcohol recovery counselor. The loss to society is immeasurable. His body should lie in state in the DC Capital Rotunda for three days so mourners could post respects to this wonderful man.

Lying headline, to fool any who weren't really paying attention. He didn't deliver an address at the Houston funeral, he recorded a video to be played there. It was neither at the location, nor at the time. Campaign Biden might as well be carrying around his own blue screen to stand in front of, so the fake news media can digitally superimpose him onto any scene they want for their custom-crafted narrative.

Isn't that special? These remarks are coming from an individual who belongs to the Democrat Party. The very party that defended slavery and even had a Ku Klux Klan member in Congress. This is the party that supports abortion where the original intent was to abort black babies namely Margaret Sanger. Ah yes, the candidate that now says, "We cannot leave this moment thinking we can once again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul, from systemic abuse that still plagues American life." Yet, it is Democrat policies that failed George Floyd and Derek Chauvin. How you might ask? George Floyd had methamphetamines and fentanyl in his system shown by the autopsy report. We had Barack Obama leading America down a frightening path by legalizing marijuana. Democrat policy that is a big failure. Now we have to hear the cry of "defund the police" when these individuals on the Minneapolis City Council just kicked the can down the road. Everyone is pointing fingers at everyone else but can't seem to understand the concept that these are weak Democrat leaders. Derek Chauvin needed anger management classes and some kind of discipline and Amy Klobuchar dismissed something was necessary. Democrat policy that is a big failure.

Hey, during the all day, all channels coverage of the George Floyd funeral there was some good news. The Pope is going to push for the canonization of George Floyd as a saint. The bad news, getting Biden elected as President is the miracle required to push Saint George over the top.

As I have watched Confederate monuments being removed by state and local governments, and sometimes by the forceful will of the American people, the fact that 10 U.S. Army installations are named for Confederate officers has weighed on me.

Sometimes big political developments arrive in the country like Sandburg’s fog, on little cat feet, silent and unnoticed until they envelop the nation. The emergence of Donald Trump four years ago is an example. Though a loud and clamorous candidate, he seemed to many like a kind of political clown destined for defeat. Establishment politicians believed almost to a person that the “blue wall” of Democratic electoral dominance would hold against this guy. The Midwest would stay solid, and Hillary Clinton would win the presidency.

But imagine if former President Bush, as Trump’s most recent Republican predecessor, backed a Democrat. Bush’s voice has the singular power to reach moderate Republicans and Republican-leaning independent voters, freeing them to walk away from the Party of Trump.

Investigators are working on additional ones as we speak and some are targeting the Mueller probe and how [retired Gen. Michael Flynn was] investigated,” Housley tweeted.
