Biden has a new executive order on policing,
2 years after George Floyd was killed

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 5/25/2022 12:01:39 PM

President Biden will sign an executive order on Wednesday requiring new use-of-force rules for federal law enforcement and encouraging local police departments to make similar changes. The measure is the product of months of consultations with police professional groups and reform activists. The executive order is the fallback position for the administration after Congress failed to agree last year on a package of reforms dubbed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Senior administration officials say relatives of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, will be present for the signing. Both Floyd and Taylor died during police action — Floyd while in


Another Executive Order because handcuffing the police isn't terribly popular in Congress in an election year.

It’s hard not to believe that the Democrat party is intent on fomenting civil war.

Rule 1- persecute Republicans and expose them to severe bodily harm. Rule 2- let dim constituencies do what they do best. Rule 3- law enforcement is presumptively the enemy of the people if they violate rules 1 and 2. Rule 4- law enforcement are generally bad and to be punished for anything that goes wrong for the regime or if the regime needs a scapegoat.

Why are relatives of Breonna Taylor invited? Breonna was bag lady for one drug gang, and was f... buddy for two opposing drug gang leaders. The police were carrying out simultaneous raids on drug gangs in Louisville, and when Breonna's f... buddy heard the commotion at the door, he thought Breonna's other f... buddy was there to shoot him, so he shot a police officer. The police did nothing wrong, but the DA did, because the f buddy/shooter was not charged!

It may be hard to read this, but if Officer Chauvin had used a billyclub on Floyd to gain his cooperation instead of following police procedures which trained him to kneel on Floyd's neck, would George Floyd still be alive today? Cops today have their hands tied behind their backs in so many ways; I'm sure Floyd would have had some ugly bruises but he'd still be alive today I believe.

George Floyd wasn't killed by the police. Had they shown up a few minutes later they would have found him on the street dead from a drug overdose. And the knee on the neck/upper shoulder was an approved MPD restraint procedure. He wouldn't be alive today no matter the police tactics. Too bad they were on the scene in a timely manner.

It's believed that the Deep State will have more false flags. Yes these recent shootings have been more. This summer they'll need distractions. The Grid going down because they lost the narrative. With Twitter being destroyed and Truth Social on the rise, the media is slowly moving towards Trump. I haven't read Bidens EO. But I'll bet you that it puts too many controls on police. These false flags will be Police against African Americans. The Deep State wants full time Riots this summer. Along with the New and Activated Covid 2.0, they now have the opportunity to steal the next election. Be Prescient!!!

The more they make it impossible for trained and Sworn Police officers to protect their communities, the more they are going to 'encourage' vigilantism. They won't much like the results of that, because when we peasants are forced to protect ourselves from evil, the more likely we are going to go after the elected evil as well.

Why the obsession with George Floyd as the symbol of excessive force by police? If there is systemic problem why rally around a case that involves the death of a very bad man, a career criminal, a felon who held a gun to a woman's pregnant belly in an robbery? It happens every day so there should be plenty of cases to use, cameras are everywhere. Why pick someone it can easily be argued died of a fentanyl overdose and was destined to die that day regardless of the encounter with police? I can only think of one possible explanation. There wasn't a better example to use as the prototypical case to illustrate a point and spur a movement. Which then leads to the logical conclusion that movement itself is a fraud and there is no systemic racist police use of excessive lethal force against Black men. You need not believe that he died of fentanyl, you can deep in your heart believe Chauvin was a racist and that he intentionally murdered George Floyd. That does nothing to deflate the argument. By assuming everybody is lying about everything and by only using indisputable facts all sides agree on and then applying simple logic perhaps an unbiased objective conclusion can be reached. After which it seems prudent to go back and examine who may have been telling the truth and who was lying. That is the process I ask my left of reality friends to apply.

It's always about reforming the police, as if that's the problem and not the fact that the police have had their hands tied to combat crime. I guess trying to reform the occupants of the inner city and homeless is considered racist.

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Joe Biden's public approval rating fell this week to 36%, the lowest level of his presidency, as Americans suffered from rising inflation, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll completed on Tuesday. The two-day national poll found that 59% of Americans disapprove of Biden's job performance. His overall approval was down six percentage points from 42% last week. Biden's approval rating has been below 50% since August, raising alarms that his Democratic Party is on track to lose control of at least one chamber of Congress in the Nov. 8 midterm election.

The Federal Reserve’s efforts to slow inflation are raising the possibility of higher unemployment, a slower-growing economy and a recession, prospects that could create new headaches for the Biden administration. As the country heads into midterm-election season, much of the political discussion has centered around solid economic growth and robust employment versus the damaging impact of inflation. More recently, warnings about the prospect of an economic downturn—which could come in 2023 according to some estimates—have complicated the economic picture in a new way.
