‘Blue Lives Matter’ Bill Adds Cops To ‘Protected Class’ – Could Make Resisting Arrest A ‘Hate Crime’ By Editorial_Staff - Apr 27, 2016 American cops have declared war on Black people. AFRICANGLOBE – Last year, in an outburst of pure insanity, the National Fraternal Order of Police, a union representing over 300,000 officers, called for cops to be included under Congress’s hate crimes statute. This demand has now materialized into actual legislation being presented to Louisiana lawmakers.

People think something will happen to cause the silent majority, the indifferent majority, the lethargic majority to become aware and active in the political process. So far in this primary season, only 11% of Democrats voted and 17% of Republicans voted, those are really pathetic turnouts considering the sorry state of affairs the country is in. The only silver lining a Trump presidency will have "so everybody can see how pathetic this country is."

America was founded on capitalism i.e. MONEY. I just heard that they are predicting that a billionaire will win the election. They didn't say his name. But I know that's nothing than more political propaganda. If Trumps wins, I predict a civil war. Already in Cali, protesters clashed both times Trump spoke. One in Orange County and the other one....I forget but it was yesterday. Folks were going to the hospital and jail. So we can see where Trump's leadership will start.....a cultural war.
