Biden's Remarks on Police Reform Expose the Dems' Lack of Solutions

On Wednesday, Joe Biden signed an executive order related to “police reform.” Once again, because he cannot pass laws that people will agree to, he falls back on the executive order to impose his way, although he only has purview over federal aspects. During his remarks, he spoke about the protest/riots in 2020 and the Uvalde mass shooting on Tuesday.


“Two summers ago, in the middle of the pandemic, we saw protests across the nation the likes of which we hadn’t seen since the 1960s,” Biden said. “They unified people of every race and generation.”

I don’t know what Biden was looking at but the hundreds of BLM/Antifa riots didn’t unify anyone. They caused billions in damage, with hundreds hurt and dozens killed. I’m sure the people in Kenosha who saw their city burn and the folks in Portland who watched their federal courthouse being attacked for more than 100 days straight weren’t feeling very unified by that either. Indeed, what we saw was Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi referring to the BORTAC Border Patrol team that came in to help defend the courthouse as “stormtroopers.” She even falsely accused them of kidnapping protesters off the street. That was her response to attacks on the federal courthouse, day after day. Talk about an insurrection about which she didn’t care. The Democrats even embraced BLM at their August 2020 Democratic Convention which was a virtual event, even having a musical number dedicated to them.  Fiery, but “mostly peaceful” protests.


I mention that because it was a BORTAC CBP agent who went into the school and took out the Uvalde mass shooter, even getting wounded in the effort, as we reported.

Biden again asked when “in God’s name” were we going to do “what needs to be done” to stop school shootings without identifying what law or process would have stopped this shooting or what his solution is.

Biden always seems to be trying to restrict our Constitutional rights — from free speech, with him wrongly repeating you can’t yell fire in a crowded theater as a justification for restricting speech (that’s wrong), to him claiming that you couldn’t own a cannon when the Constitution is written (again wrong). He’s gotten four Pinocchios on that claim in the past, but he just keeps repeating it.


But he pulls out these wrong talking points anytime he starts pushing gun control.

Then he also had this confusing moment, once against calling the ATF the “AFT.” He also called it “Alcoball” Tobacco and Firearms and said it was in charge of seeing that the “Second Amendment was abided by.”

I’m not sure he understands either the role of the ATF or the Second Amendment here. The AFT is the American Federation of Teachers, some of his favorite union people. The ATF is not responsible for seeing that the “Second Amendment is abided by.” The Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms from wrongful restrictions by the government.

Finally, I would note while Biden tried to blame Republicans for opposing reform to policing, Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott’s spokesperson pointed out that his bill would have addressed many of the reform questions, but Democrats refused to vote for it.
