“Uniting the country” was one of the top promises Joe Biden made to voters during the 2020 campaign.
But during the first three months of his Presidency, he’s done the exact opposite by pushing the Left’s radical agenda.
And Joe Biden just made one disturbing announcement that could deal a devastating blow to law enforcement’s ability to do their job.
When Black Lives Matter riots broke out this week in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, after a police officer accidentally shot and killed Daunte Wright, who had a warrant out for his arrest on a weapons charge, Joe Biden tossed out his proposed plans to create a commission on police reform.
Biden’s Director of the Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice announced:
Based on close, respectful consultation with partners in the civil rights community, the administration made the considered judgment that a police commission, at this time, would not be the most effective way to deliver on our top priority in this area, which is to sign the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act into law.
But Biden’s announcement doesn’t mean he’s backing away from pushing the Left’s anti-police legislation.
Instead, Biden will encourage Senate Democrats to nuke the filibuster and pass sweeping anti-police reform legislation that attacks cops and makes it much more difficult for them to do their jobs.
“We also agree with the White House decision to forgo the creation of a commission to study the problem.” President of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Wes Henderson told POLITICO. “Congress is by far the more appropriate venue to consider changes in law regarding police accountability.”
On the surface, it appears that Joe Biden scrapping his plans for a commission on police reform would be a good thing for pro-law-and-order Americans.
But what it really means is that Biden will use his power to pressure Pelosi and Schumer to immediately take up anti-police legislation, particularly their number one demand which is to end qualified immunity, which prevents police from being sued for performing their job.
