TheHill.com reports that
Senior Democratic lawmakers, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer knelt during a moment of silence shortly before unveiling a legislative package of police reforms Monday.
About two dozen lawmakers knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds as a tribute to George Floyd, the unarmed African American man who died after a now-former Minneapolis police officer pinned his knee on Floyd’s neck during an arrest for that length of time.
Lawmakers, wearing African kente cloth scarves, knelt in the Capitol Visitor Center before holding a press conference to unveil their legislation in response to almost two weeks of nationwide protests over police brutality toward African Americans.

“We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said before the moment of silence began.
After almost nine minutes, Pelosi and the other lawmakers stood back up, though the Speaker needed the help of an aide due to her tall stilettos.
“You see how long it was to have that knee on his neck,” Pelosi said afterward.
Senate Democrats held a similar moment of silence last week.
“To every one of us, it was excruciating. It seemed an unbearably long amount of time. It felt so painful to get even an inkling of how this man and so many black Americans have suffered for so long,” Schumer said before Monday’s moment of silence.
Democrats’ sweeping legislative package includes several proposals from members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including a ban on the use of chokeholds and establishing a national database to track police misconduct.
What The Hill is not telling you is that Pelosi, Schumer, and company were excoriated all day long yesterday from their over-the-top pandering for the sake of attempting to secure black American votes.
Those critics were wasting their time.
The word “shame” does not exist in their vocabulary.
The words “money” and “power” definitely do.
Their oblivious nature is evident by the African ceremonial scarves that they wore around their neck.
They are no more African than they are honest.
And, they have no idea about what is going on in distressed black communities because they all live in mansions in gated communities.
Now that we are months away from the 2020 Presidential Election, the Democrats’ Desperation has spun out-of-control because they have realized that nothing that they have thrown at Trump to damage him has worked.
Presently, neither riots nor Democrat-weighted push polls designed to discourage voters from casting their ballot for Trump on November 3rd are working.
And, on top of all they have tried, including mass hysteria over the Chinese Coronavirus, America’s Economy is beginning to comeback, exceeding all predictions.
Quite frankly, the Democrat Elite remain safe and secure in their own bubble, purposely oblivious to the day-to-day struggles of those of us average Americans who Hillary Clinton referred to as “Deplorables”.
Meanwhile, President Trump announced that he is going to resume his MAGA allies in a couple of weeks.
After all, if Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the other “protesters” can gather together without social distancing and not get sick with the coronavirus, then average Americans should be able to gather together in the same manner and have a great time with our President.
For my final thought today, I am going to let Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler speak for me.
