National Co-Chair of Biden Campaign: Police
Reform, Not Violence, 'Should Be the
Subject We're Talking About'

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/31/2020 6:54:58 AM

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), asked about the ongoing violence in some Democrat-run cities, said he is not concerned about Biden's apparent reluctance to address the issue. Biden did not mention the mob violence in Portland and other cities in his acceptance speech at the Democrat National Convention, an omission criticized by Vice President Mike Pence in his own speech to the Republican convention.Since then, Biden has issued two statements condemning the violence.“I don't have a concern where we are on this issue,” Richmond, a national co-chair of the Biden campaign, told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“I don't have a concern where we are on this issue.” And that children is the problem. Wait until the mob marches up his street, breaking windows, trashing stores, burning cars. And the moment one of these thugs decides to torch his home, steal his belongings and yell the f - word at him, shine a laser in his eyes, I want someone to stick a microphone in his face. I want him to tell the world he has no problem with this violence. And then remind us we should not have a problem with it either. This guy is a putz. Police reform will not change the mind of an evil person intent on causing chaos, destruction, or bodily harm. This is major BS.

Don't forget that Speaker Piglosi decided she could use this violence in the campaign against President Trump by postponing legislation - proposed by Senator Tim Scott - also killed by Cammmmm-ala Harris. The Democrats wanted the violence in the streets that they are now blaming on the President. Punish them at the polls in November by sweeping the House, Senate, and Presidency for Republicans.

Like 'legitimate rights of the Palestinian people', police reform are are highly coded words. To Democrats they still mean defunding, anarchy and mob violence exploited for political advantage. Don't fall for this crap.

What is this police reform these people talk about—stop arresting black, excuse me, Blacks? Give them milk and cookies when they are interrogated? Have a social worker present when the perp, excuse me again, alleged perp is arrested? They toss the term “police reform” around like candy at Halloween, but don’t tell you what is meant to by it. I like the old movies where the cops shoot at the bad guys, who run away.

Looks like Biden’s stellar campaign staff are going to go ahead and double down on stupid. They aren’t selling the idea that Trump caused Covid deaths (although Cuomo actually did) and making excuses for criminal arson and looting because the Leftists don’t like Trump isn’t working either. The easiest way to survive encounters with the police is to not have any, or if you do, comply with what they tell you to do. Police officers do not wish to lose their lives to show how woke they are.

I agree that police reform is a key subject but only in the context of throwing off the democrat politician's yoke of inaction in the face of progressive/communist criminality. Plainly stated, reform the police such that they can shoot looters and arsonists as many times as necessary to achieve immediate elimination of the threat. The police should not have to prove that the dead terrorist was a card-carrying member of a known anarchist group. In other words, "you loot, we shoot" - period.

More active-duty U.S. troops say they’ll vote for former Vice President Joseph R. Biden than President Trump in the November election, a new poll shows, continuing a steady decline in the commander in chief’s favorability ratings among service members. A Military Times survey released Monday found that if the election were held today, 41% of active-duty troops say they’d vote for Mr. Biden, compared to just 37% for the president. Another 13% said they intend to back a third-party candidate, while 9% said they’d skip the presidential election altogether. The Military Times surveyed 1,018 active-duty troops for the poll.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday against Michael Flynn and the Justice Department in their request to quickly shut down his criminal case. The 8-2 decision restores power to a judge to question the Justice Department's moves in the politically divisive case, when Attorney General William Barr dropped charges against President Donald Trump's former national security adviser earlier this year despite twice pleading guilty to lying under oath to lying to the FBI. Flynn had fought District Judge Emmet Sullivan's decision to ask a third-party lawyer to argue against the Justice Department's dismissal in the case, and his plans to hold a hearing, which has not yet happened.

CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.”VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The problem, for Biden, is that he explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan. CNN’s Dana Bash asked him the question directly: Bash: Thank you, Mr. Vice President. Just to clarify,

Joe Biden is in the Catch-22 of his political career, folks.

If he hits the campaign trail, he runs the risk of… Pittsburgh.The latter occurred on Monday, and it wasn’t a pretty sight. At all. Put another way, Joe had a very bad day in Pittsburgh. A really bad day.As my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported, Biden gave a speech in Pittsburgh on Monday that went far beyond simple gaffes and pregnant pauses.

The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has been tried and convicted by Democrats, the media, and truth-be-damned activists before the case is resolved. It’s a mirror image of the Michael Brown shooting (the officer was cleared) in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd (the officer has yet to go to trial). The difference is this time, pro athletes, pampered and well-paid, joined the mob. They should be ashamed of their behavior.
