As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “Young Americans for Liberty,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“Look how many lies were told to beat the war drums to get this country to endorse going to the ridiculous, unconstitutional, nonsensical, unwinnable wars in the Middle East. And, now, they want to go to war with Russia? I say wer need a war with Washington D.C.!” – Ron Paul
My Commentary: I posted this to my wall back in July of 2014…
(Erin Durkin, Adam Edelman) Donald Trump said Wednesday he would implement nationwide stop-and-frisk practices — even though the use of such policing tactics in New York City was ruled unconstitutional in 2013.
“I would do stop and frisk. I think you have to. We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well and you have to be proactive,” Trump said on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” program, according to a partial transcript of the interview released by the network.
(Adam Dick) In his main stage speech at the Republican National Convention in July, Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City mayor and current advisor to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, predicted, “What I did for New York, Donald Trump Will do for America.” That does seem to accurately state Trump’s intention, at least as far as expanding Giuliani’s stop-and-frisk police activity across the country is concerned.
On Friday, NBC10 reporter Lauren Mayk asked Trump what police in Philadelphia “are not doing that they could be doing” for dealing with “gun violence,” Trump’s response included asserting that “stop-and-frisk,” which Trump credits to Giuliani, “is a very positive thing.” This is not just some one-off statement by Trump regarding stop-and-frisk. In July of 2013, Trump posted the following message on Twitter:
Stop and frisk works. Instead of criticizing @NY_POLICE Chief Ray Kelly, New Yorkers should be thanking him for keeping NY safe.

Jonas A.: When that happens, there will be another civil war!!!
Alison K.: we need another revolution
“If you can see through the illusion then you are the solution”
Alison K.: Oh I can definitely be part of the solution – but it is immensely frustrating that everyone else defends it, and I end up being the ‘crazy’ person in any discussion because i see through the BS. I’m waiting for a paradigm shift that i fear isn’t coming.
