Former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder commented on the Black Lives Matter protests Sunday night, saying, “We have our MOMENT.” (Photo) Holder said on Twitter:“We have our MOMENT. The entire nation has been galvanized. The patriotic protesters have done well and will continue to do so. This is not enough. We need to construct a MOVEMENT that puts in place the structural reforms necessary for the sweeping changes that are badly needed.”

So, I see it's them against us now. Holder along with his militants thought they could change the U.S. Congressional election out come some years ago to strong democrat through gerrymandering. When gerrymandering did not work, he took a different approach. He and Obama got involved with the riots. My bet, they were the in the background throwing fuel on the fire. It would not surprise me that Holder and Obama are working with BLM and Antifa. I will also bet, that they had the swamp creatures surface (Bush, Romney, Powell, Mattis, Miley) and say that will not support Trump. These swamp creatures should be ashamed of themselves being part of this destruction.

All these hacks who are calling for sweeping change, have failed to make any suggestion as to what those changes would be! Complete nonsense!

Can I just say that I’m sick to death of hearing about black people? Just shut up already. People who are racist will always be racist. They aren’t changing. Our laws are the same for everyone. If they want to keep voting Democrat they will continue on the same path forever. All the affirmative action, social programs, taxpayer handouts and whatever other special privileges they can dream up won’t change it. Clean up your neighborhoods, stop having babies with no daddys, manage your children and wise up. Or just shut up and let the rest of us live in peace.

Well, wasn’t it Clyburn who said that the pandemic offered a chance for sweeping changes? That didn’t work and Holder thinks that this will? If anything it is setting the causes of improving lives for blacks back another 50 years, just as 0bama’s reign of terror did. The question is, how far back do they want to go? Patriotic protestors, my arse.

So here we are finally seeing the truth of the Marxist Communist democrat, liberal and Rino solution to their anarchy, defund / abolish police who are the only line of defense against the evil Satanist anarchists. Go ahead and defund your police forces. You will then find out what you are left with. Anarchy in the streets with the National Guard being federalized and/or our U.S. Military having to restore order with shoot to kill orders of all rioters and looters. Excessive tolerance of brainwashed illiterate imbeciles leads to the death of societies from within by their own people. The perfect opportunity for the tyranny of evil Satanist inspired leaders to gain control of America because the overwhelming majority of freedom and safety loving people will stand by an allow Satanists to take control in the fake name of community tolerance.

Holder said the entire nation has been galvanized. He's right. Gun shops are empty and there's little ammo to be had. People who kept their firearms in a safe are taking them out and putting one is each room, and millions who never carried a gun won't leave home without it it. The cops are kneeling, washing feet and being defunded. Only you can protect yourself.

Hateful Holder. He hates the United States and Americans. He has said so in the past. They know what they want, but they aren't sharing their intentions with the rest of the nation. If they did, they know they would lose half of their support. They want change? Can they be more specific? They have no intention of being transparent in this. We know they want to do away with the police. Bad idea. How much would their plans sound like an anti-American pro-Communist, pro-Socialist, pro-Muslim manifesto? Notice how we are being told by the media that we are now all now motivated to want change? Don't bet on it! I'm just a coward! Holder told me so with his 'Nation of Cowards' speech. Holder is the last person we should be listening to at the moment. Its amazing the gang of tyrants and criminals that Obama put together. He really put together a crew that hates the United States. That was their main qualification. It shows.

Rham Emanuel was under Obama and used a Saul Alinsky government management method, never let a crisis go to waste. This is what Antifa created and is using to make sweeping changes to governments. The rioting was planned and some participants are paid $25 an hour to stand and demonstrate. They advertised on Craig's List for participants. That is inciting to riot and those being paid should be arrested and charged. There has been suggested that George Soros is providing the money for the demonstrator wages.

Nothing is stranger in these tense days than the monotony of the inexact and non-descriptive mantra of “white privilege” and “white solidarity”—as if there is some monolithic white bloc, or as if class matters not at all. In truth, the clingers, the deplorables, the irredeemables, and Joe Biden’s “dregs” have very little in common with those who so libel them, but superficially share supposedly omnipotent and similar skin color. In the past, we saw such tensions among so-called whites in CNN’s reporting of the allegedly toothless rubes at Trump rallies, in the Strzok-Page text trove about Walmart’s smelly patrons, in the callous coastal disregard for the five-decade wasting away

President Trump gave an inspirational speech at West Point on Saturday, pitched at the Class of 2020, which will carry the burden of seeing the country through this turning point in its history. Not that you would know much about the speech because the usual suspects — including formerly respected military leaders — decided yet again to rain on the president’s parade, drowning out a unifying message with their latest creative iteration of Trump Derangement Syndrome. For them, no crisis is so serious that it can’t be grafted onto their psycho-narrative that Bad Orange Man is to blame for everything that has ever gone wrong in America.

The campaign claimed that the poll numbers are wrong, and suggested that they were reported as part of an effort to suppress voter enthusiasm and turnout for Trump,

Andrew Cuomo said his office had received 25,000 complaints of reopening violations by businesses as New Yorkers flocked to streets to enjoy a weekend of late spring sunshine. “Lots of violations of social distancing, parties in the street, restaurants and bars ignoring laws,” he tweeted. “Enforce the law or there will be state action,” Cuomo warned local authorities. New York City, the epicenter of America’s coronavirus outbreak, is in phase one of Cuomo’s four-phase reopening plan.
