I shall remind you that all this violence, the injuries to the officers, are the direct result of America’s most costly, clearly cataclysmically failed policy called the War on Drugs! Cops were there with a drug warrant. In fact, more than 80% of all crime is drug related! Excerpts from the Article: A suspect has been arrested after he barricaded himself for hours in a North Philadelphia home in a shooting standoff that left six officers...

tRump is still doing it, doing it more, and lying like hell to us about it! Ignoring, again, an order from a Federal Judge, the tRump administration is grossly misrepresenting what is going on at the border.  Ripping young children from their parents because Mom or Dad had a driving violation is BULLSHIT!

Just like tRump’s attempt to ban all Muslims, this is a ruse to try to keepp out people of color.  7/25 I am a bit late in posting this, but I wrote the above several days ago, and now it has come to pass: READ Federal judge temporarily blocks Trump administration’s 9-day-old asylum rule =...
