No American can ever again expect truth or justice from
the Courts because of corrupt Obama and Holder.
Those POS have raped justice and America in every
This judge’s been around when it comes to controversial rulings. It looks like we may have another Alcee Lamar Hastings in the works. Thanks Zero and Holder. That black vortex is picking up speed.
