Flip-Flop: Biden Acknowledges ‘Most Cops Are Good,’ After Saying There’s ‘Absolutely’ A Systemic Racism Problem With Law Enforcement

Former Vice President and the Democratic nominee for the 2020 presidential election Joe Biden acknowledged that “most cops are good,” in a speech he delivered in Pittsburgh Monday. But, it comes after Biden said in June that he “absolutely” beleives a systemic racism problem exists with law enforcement.

“I believe we can bring these folks fighting for racial justice to the table,” Biden told voters Monday. “I’ve worked with police in this country for many years. I know most cops are good decent people. I know they’ve risked their life everytime they’ve put that shield on and go out the door. And I’m confident I can bring the police to the table as well.”

The statement comes just a few months after Biden said there’s “absolutely” systemic racism in the law enforcement community and “across the board.”

“It’s in housing, it’s in education, it’s in everything we do, It’s real, It’s genuine, it’s serious,” Biden said. “Look, not all law enforcement officers are racist, my lord, there’s some really good, good cops out there, but the way in which it works right now and we’re seeing too many examples of it.”

Biden also condemned violent protests on Monday, saying those who engage in the behavior should be prosecuted and blamed President Trump for “fomenting it.”

He said, “The senseless violence of looting and burning and destruction of property. I want to make it absolutely clear, I want to be very clear about all of this. Rioting is not protesting, looting is not protesting, setting fires is not protesting, none of this is protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted.”

Trump is gaining ground in many key polls, which some suspect is the reason Biden’s made his way out into the public square since he spoke at the Democratic National Convention earlier this month. Pennsylvania is no exception to that as Biden plunges in the polls.

President Trump reacted on Twitter minutes after Biden’s speech saying, “Just watched what Biden had to say. To me, he’s blaming the Police far more than he’s blaming the Rioters, Anarchists, Agitators, and Looters, which he could never blame or he would lose the Radical Left Bernie supports!”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
