    1. @David Eby That’s what Fascist dictators like the one you worship establish. YOU deserve it, WE don’t.

    2. Under Biden we will become a socialist nation, he’s already paying people to stay home and not work.

  1. The minute Trump lied, we lived in a dictatorship, and we continue to as long as the traitor in chief walks free.

    1. @Leila e Yeah it’s kind of a joke name because my friends gave me a tough time cause of my accent.

    2. PEOPLE, TRUMP WILL DO ANYTHING TO REMAIN IN POWER WAKE UP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE, WE’RE LIVING IN THE TRADE WINDS OF OUR TIMES

    3. I couldn’t agree more. Mistakes made during reconstruction have allowed this danger to rise up again. States that seceded the union were not held accountable, they were allowed to receive-enter the union with only 10% of the state’s population swearing allegiance to the Union/Constitution. Treasonous players were not prosecuted. Lessons were not learned, and they have been lying in wait all these years waiting for another opportunity to start their “unfinished” civil war. Today’s traitors need to be indicted and sentenced to life in prison. That’s how you stop future attempts to destroy our democracy and violent attempts at insurrection. We have already allowed too much time to elapse and action is urgently required to protect our country from these criminals.

    1. @Robert Fritzenkotter it’s any Presidents call, on cancelling the acts of his predecessors. The last guy did it. Now it’s being done to him.

      BTW he ain’t coming back, he’s going to prison!

    2. @Robert Fritzenkotter Here is why there is never any news about those things. 1st, they are not true, and the gas prices are not a situation that the current President can control. It’s a supply and demand issue. You should look at financial news etc instead of watching those political channels. It will help you find your answers so people don’t chastise you as being ignorant. Just trying to help a fellow American get the truth he deserves.

  2. If the GQP attains majority power in congress due to rigging elections, US democracy will effectively die. VOTE!

    1. @Leila e That’s what I’m saying. But I looked at the comments on msnbc when Bernie was running and these msnbc tools were ruthlessly attacking him and his supporters. So a democrat apologist telling people to vote is a little disingenuous

  3. “A lie once told remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”
    — Goebbels

    Trump and republicans have learned valuable and diabolical lessons from Goebbels.

    1. @LD The master stroke is actually how they have been able to convince people to wholeheartedly believe the opposing party is doing all these things. It is like facts, evidence and logic don’t have meaning anymore.

    2. @henry ross Because why, you’re still smoking crack and convinced that Trump is a Russian Asset?

  4. It is chilling that this is even a topic that needs to be discussed… I NEVER thought America would be in such a perilous position.

    1. @Blake JonesII the suckers are the people who believe anything trump says and especially the ridiculous fraudulent elction clsims

    2. @Joseph Cupparo well said perhaps true ? Hardly. Just because somthing is well said in no way means it is true.

    3. @Austin Myslinski well since the entire population was not part of the inshrrection but a bunch of oathkeepers were you poit is pointless

    4. @Austin Myslinski no he was not talking tongue in cheek i listened to his words andthey were serious not sarcastic.

    5. You’re probably the same type that thinks slaves were happy to be endangered servants… I know and have black friends but I don’t correct my own family or friends when they’re being bias or racist… Do you truly know or have a black friend? … No! Sad.

  5. Gaetz, Powell, Margarine Trailer Queen and Flynn are out now speaking, actively trying to start a CIVIL WAR.

    1. @adee spruel The Joints Chief of Staff made it clear to Trump, our military oath is to the constitution of the U.S., not a person, not even to the President of the United States. It’s incredible that Trump had to be reminded of this as the Commander in Chief. But then again, he has violated his oath of office multiple times.

    2. @Crystal Walker I saw a comment calling her Margarine Laser Beam, and I couldn’t stop laughing!

  6. Not if we keep going the way we are. Every time someone states a falsehood, we need to stand up and SCREAM that they’re lying. Every time one of them calls out a lie, they need to be shouted out of the room.

  7. “All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security advisor to the president of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.” ~ Judge Emmet Sullivan to Michael Flynn

    1. @Ill President oooo so scary! We’ve live with their hypocritical crap, all of our lives. Just be prepared!

  8. “Why can’t what happened in ‘Minamar’ happen here?” These people have succeeded in being both hilarious and terrifying at the same time.

    1. @Stephen Suddick These failings become dangerous when they’re touted as being positive attributes. A direct result of the ultra right-wing’s push using gas-lighting, anti-intellectualism and “alternative facts.” Distorting reality it’s the only way fascists and Republicans feel they can hold into power. This is EXACTLY how Goebbels’ Nazi party slid into power.

    2. @Stirling Fletcher  @Stirling Fletcher  No argument. We are alive in a very dangerous time and all people still capable of honest, critical thinking have had a terrible burden foisted upon them by the benighted, the cynical and the evil among us.

  9. Unless something is done to stop the path we are on, this great experiment will fail like so many before.

    1. @senile Joe Biden I have never met one of you russians who was either intelligent or ethical.

  10. Call them what they are FASCISTS
    FASCISTS who are spitting on the graves of the real veterans
    Did the fascist fighters fight and die for nothing ?

    1. Yeah. He needs to dig his spurs in and get that show going.
      But they get everything they can before they charge someone.

    2. Take a look at Glenn Kirschner`s channel “Justice matters”. Then perhaps you look a bit more optimistic into future. No joke, he knows some interesting things and can explain very well.

  11. Watching as a non U.S. Citizen is weird. I can’t imagine living there. The U.S. looks fragile. Best of luck to you…

    1. It’s all good in the US of A.
      Just letting the lunatic Republicans on the grass, then it’s back to their beds with meds

    2. I moved from Europe to the US 4 years ago. At the moment I am not happy at all with my decision.

  12. “Disgraced, ex-General”. Quite a mouthful to accept when we consider that he’s still got a generous, handsome tax-payer funded pension with benefits, while getting seen & heard on prime-time media outlets. Why is this fear-mongering not stopped?

    1. We need to start a letter writing campaign. And someone needs to start a Save Democracy into movement in America.

    2. Traitor Flynn is a disgrace to the uniform. He can be recalled, court marshaled and sent to Leavenworth. What happened to his oath to country and Constitution?That also goes for his traitorous brother. Both are dangerous and know security information. ,

    3. Send him to Guantanamo with the rest of the brainwashed perhaps then they will rethink justice & democracy!

  13. I can’t help but wonder how long we will just keep talking about all this treason and insurrection committed by Republicans. Will we ever take action? And bring all these people to justice?

    1. You will keep talking ! Because you are American. All talk, but no Do. That’s why China is beating you. They DO.

    2. @Chonmanee Bamrung maybe so. But I would rather be a talking democratic nation than a non-talking communist one.

  14. Flynn, was pardoned, “now,” he’s trying to speak on or about a Coup? Such gull, then tries to lie about what he stated.
