Chairman Adam Schiff tells Ali Velshi that Donald Trump’s late-Friday-night firing of the Inspector General who flagged the whistleblower complaint to Congress is the president “retaliating against the people that are on his enemies list.”

      @Mark Mcdonnell You are being willfully ignorant of plainly obvious facts. Neither political party has our best interests at heart. Trump is a career con artist and general bottom of the barrel sort of person. Even a cursory look at his life reveals this.

    • @Mark Mcdonnell LMAO Ok whatever. Yeah, he is the greatest, most stable, honest, empathetic president we have ever had. GET LOST SHEEP

      @Leo I am not taking this check so much for that . Abortion is not going away . Fixing our environment is fine except your destroying all kinds of businesses not just oil or gas. The way to fix the environment is simply create businesses that sell products that everyone buys which don’t use gas or oil. You don’t like these things i get that but you as a consumer support that , hypocrisy really. In order to change these things it will involve the next generation to at their schools and colleges to come up with the ideas to replace cars ,buses and all your air conditioning and heating with self sustaining forms of power. It is happening ,now . So we don’t have to destroy all industry to do it. You may think this is all politics it’s not. I am more interested in changing our future but people who complain and really create damage in a effort to get what they want are not seeing how it is really done. If you hate this stuff so much like i said exercise your greatest power as a consumer stop driving a gas vehicle stop using air conditioning stop using gas to heat and cook with i do. I am more environmental than you or your party but i don’t have to disrupt the country to do it. You know years ago before refrigerators a guy brought your grandparents ice to keep you food fresh life evolves if you let it. Democrats have talked of the environment for years and all they did was create inflation dependence on foreign oil and gas so pay ransom to terrorist sponsors, that’s stupid. There is much more to it than your party is telling you. I have worked and voted for Democrats I know them well . But i’m not one. So to say i’m closed minded your very wrong i know what i’m doing and i get what i want. Not everyone is out to hurt people out of anger ,hate or greed.

      @Leo The banks failed and Obama did a bailout because the Fed who is full of Goldman Saks employees ordered it must happen. Democrats always free with taxpayer money . The money is not theirs it’s your and your neighbors they are in a sense stealing from you to help you . The government is paid by you they have money because you gave them yours. I know people think they just print money but the cost to do that means inflation which means a giant deficit you heard of our National Debt they are feeding it . Who cares ,right well on top the value of your money is greatly reduced that means you pay much more for much less. You dig a whole to get relief that’s what happens. All the people who in this crisis could help so much more if they had the the money to do so . When you take that money you hurt them and all the good they create. You are hurting your neighbor because a Democrat is claiming to help you which means he is robbing Peter to pay Paul . We need more civics ,more finance taught in school because so many don’t know how it works.

      @Leo No Republican hates Democracy quite the opposite . They are responsible that is why they try to save money why they like creating jobs ,why they are not just out for themselves but everyone. People don’t like their parents who say no well Republicans say no to it is not out of hate it is to create a workable world. Deregulating the banks can encourage other kinds of investments it could encourage higher interest it could encourage investment. It’s not that i don’t see a reason for regulation in the case of the bailout money was passed because of housing. Banks sold off what became known as junk bonds then people invested with that and were hurt by it. There is always someone doing a scheme in place of good business sense. They had a bill created back in the early 1930’s it was overturned but it is a good device for preventing the housing bubble from happening again. They came up with a new bill but it’s weak . Obama basically rewarded the banks by the bailout which cost this country trillions bad deal. Corp influence i personally want gone but Democrats are in the front lines protecting it. You don’t hear them signing up to change it. They talk ,yes but in Congress they say no because it benefits them.

    • @thenet0120002 Sorry Adam ??

    What else is new he’s been doing this for three years and nothing has been done about it

    • @Bliss Open to opinion ; but a fine waste of time , which you obviously have an abundance of.

    • @Bliss You should actually venture out in the world and find answers to your questions first hand as opposed to relying on others observations. But then again , we scare you….. Sad lad you are…..

    • @Bliss You really need to smoke a fat one and seek counseling son. You’re a sandwich short of a picnic. You might want to try reading , Zen Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig as well as , The Teachings Of Don Juan , A Yaqui Way Of Knowledge by Carlos Castaneda. I believe it would prove enlightening , provided you have an open mind for reading. Hope this helps….

    • @M Hartung I’m finding your comments a bit amusing. Again you assume. One thing you did get right though. You assume that you’re talking DOWN to a younger male, calling me “son,” but the truth is, why, yes, I do have a lot of time on my hands. Why? I’m a 67 y/o. Not a young male, but an older woman…lol.

      Your posts are reflective of a Narcissist. It’s reached an epidemic now, so that doesn’t surprise me. The Narcissism Epidemic is a book on Amazon.

      As for Castaneda, I read one of his books over 35 years ago. Crazy stuff. Said he did his UCLA thesis on hallucinotropic drugs like peyote and mesclun, (and chaparral?) learned from a Yaqui Indian medicine man, a shaman, in the AZ desert. I found it to be a boring book. I forget the name of it. I know there were at least 5 or 6 titles, if I remember correctly.

      I don’t recall ever riding a motorcycle, never took any interest in them, and neither Zen Buddhism, Hinduism, nor the New Age Movement are salvific, so not interested in them either.

      From all I’ve heard, the Indians who’ve stayed on the reservations are either drug or alcohol addicted, so it seems clear no shaman and no drug has helped them up and out of their misery. So is that where you’re at? For sure a man’s Narcissistic behavior is just a mask, a cover-up for their own self-loathing, or low-self-esteem. All Narcs are miserably unhappy, and are predators. They are anti-social and love to hide out in social media sites like YT for some cyber-bullying fun. They’re still emotionally stuck at around the age of 5, pitching sand in the sandbox. To think that Melania wanted to be the Spokeswoman for the Anti-Cyber-bullying campaign was laughable, given her husband’s 2am Twitter Tirades.

      Trump’s a drug addict, too. He’s hooked on amphetamines – Adderall for his ADHD, and a stronger European version of Sudafed. It’s who sometimes he speaks with cottonmouth, or snorts when he speaks. It’s why he’s up in the middle of the night Twitter raging.

      Are you an Indian? So how do you feel about Trump’s racism? You don’t strike me as much of a reader, but perhaps you’ll enjoy this, then you can continue on with your dope smoking. Such addictions are self-medication coping mechanisms. Addiction and abuse almost always go hand in hand.

      Woody Guthrie, ‘Old Man Trump’ and a real estate empire’s racist foundations
      http://theconversation.com/woody-guthrie-old-man-trump-and-a-real-estate-empires-racist-foundations-53026

      The Indian chiefs who met with Trump were less than pleased with his insulting comments about Elizabeth Warren, mockingly calling her Pocahontas.

      As for firsthand knowledge, I have that, too. I spent 18 months with a man who manipulated thousands of dollars from me, and with all the collateral damages, it runs into six figures. Nothing quite like experiencing these people firsthand. Not only did he have the same Narcissistic and Psychopathic traits of Trump, in the end, I finally pegged him to be a pedophile. Trump is a predator of women. He cannot love, but finds them useful in the way one might find a refrigerator or a couch, and just as easily disposable. His only emotion is anger; everything else is the mask.

      Psychopaths are everywhere, in every socio-economic sector, and they’re known to “hide in plain site.” Because of their false (FAKE) front, it takes a while to figure them out, particularly if you’ve never studied Personality Disorders and other mental illnesses. So it’s easy for me to spot these characteristic traits in Trump. No newscaster has to tell me; I just listen to what he himself says. To me, it’s so obvious. If you think he’s a normal guy, it’s because you’re too much like him.

      Lastly, I don’t find my posts to be a waste of time since I know there are people who think deeper than you and do their own research. A reasonable person will listen to both sides. My fellow Republicans are catching on. Anyone who is “open-minded,” as you say, and is willing to learn, will always seek out the truth. Truth is not found in hallucinogenic drugs, except to those who are their own gods. Typical of a brain on drugs, and typical of those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I feel sorry for you. Honestly, I do.

    • @Bliss Actually I didn’t get it right ; I was wrong. Your posts are a reflection of a nescient , young , liberal dude , chickadee. I am intelligent , athletic and very good looking. I don’t need a book ; I realize I’m a fine catch ; ask my wife. I’m sure you read it mam. If in fact you did , it wouldn’t surprise me if you were bored. You seem stuck in neutral , unable to leave your comfort zone and lash out at those you wish you had the courage to be ; sad. And ZAOMM , it’s not so much about fixing motorcycles shugee ; your shallow nature is on display. Trumps has never taken drugs poltroon. Seek help . Does Hartung sound Indian? Stupid question. He’s not racist and provide me with an example . You should try a smoke sugar booger ; it might remove those panties which are stuffed up your rump. The right drugs expand your mined and relax one. Only the weak allow them to control their lives. Perhaps you should steer clear. Elizabeth Warren is a fool ; hence her present popularity. Sorry for you’re man hate syndrome baby girl. Were you married to Trump? You sound a bit like a sucker or incompetent with regards to financial matters. Fined another man to help you if possible. Psychopaths are everywhere. What you espouse of Trump are merely a bitter woman’s psychotic , anti man , diatribe. Normal guys don’t become President of the United States sweet pea. I find it a waste of time. Your ability to cogitate anything aside from the lint in your belly button equates to roughly that of a square of butt wipe ; hope you’re not running low. You meant your one rhino friend ,correct? You need to get out more and hear what Conservatives really feel. It will be abundantly clear to even you in November ; just watch. I do seek out the truth ; I might suggest you take a dose of your own sage advice. How would you know anything about hallucinogens mam being you have never partaken? Akin to your Liberal blather , opinions , no facts. Don’t feel sorry for me . I have a magnificent life. Retired, lovely , loving wife , 2 angel daughters , a love of a grand daughter . fish , dive , hunt , garden , restore classic muscle cars and trucks , cater food on occasion , a handful of great friends, both liberal and conservatives. I feel sorry for you and your boring , menial existence sweetie. God bless and stay well….

  9. Adam Shift you are my hero! 🥰 tRump will go down in history for being a lunatic!

  10. Hopefully, he and all others removed unfairly will get their positions back with the new administration this November.

      @M Murph no we talking about the destroyer whose leading well suppose to be leading one of the most powerful country in the world. And you too know he is unfit, so stop with the non sense. This country is being destroyed, and where does that leave you with your broke self.

    • Kellie Carter So far the democrats haven’t put forth any ideas that will not bankrupt the country. The green new deal is a representation of their stupidity. Luckily Trump was elected to get out of the ignorant Paris climate deal that would strangle our economy while giving other countries 12yrs to comply. So now your answer is what? Biden, an old man with dementia who was a sellout when he was in his right mind. It’s time to wake up and realize Trump isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination but better than the alternative

    • @Kellie Carter Please give me some examples of what Trump has done or is doing to destroy this country. Don’t give me your professors rhetoric. Tell me what you know about trump destroying this country and give me some examples please? thank you…

    Hitler also fired his Generals when they told him the truth….

    • Cpl Soletrain | April 10, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      @corausr Hitler rarely killed party members after the Night of the Long Knives, where the more radical party leadership murdered the less radical half in their sleep. After that, firing them was usually sufficient to ruin them, and having a formerly respected and powerful person begging on the street and treated like a pariah was a valuable constant reminder of what happens to people who he didn’t like. Hitler was vindictive and prone to tantrums.

      Not to give him an excuse, but I personally think something got knocked loose in WWI and he acquired a degenerative brain disorder

    • @Cpl Soletrain Early childhood trauma before the age of five, 
      most often child abuse/neglect is what causes Personality Disorders. For males, it’s usually Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Anti-Social Personality Disorder – the criminal mind, and the closest thing to Psychopathy. These are the most dangerous of the 10 Personality Disorders. And they are most often co-morbid. It seems Trump has both, also co-morbid with Paranoid Personality Disorder. I spent 18 months with such a man. He manipulated thousands of dollars out of me. In the end, I pegged him to be a pedophile. They’re all predators. Trump’s preference is the exploitation of women. Both are conmen. Both racists, too. Both think they’re above the law. And yes, both vindictive and prone to tantrums. They can not tolerate even the slightest hint of criticism, but they can sure dish it out. They can have a high IQ or not, but that is irrelevant. Emotionally, they’re stuck at the level of a small child. Trump has a very low EQ – Emotional Quotient. Daniel Goldman wrote about this in his book, “Emotional Intelligence,” written many years ago, still available at Amazon.

      Look up Justin Frank, Steven Hassan, Bandy Lee, Robert Hare, Kent Kiehl, Joe Navarro, and Tony Schwartz, both here at YT and at Amazon. The first five are mental health experts, Navarro is retired FBI, and Schwartz was the ghostwriter first Trump’s book, “The Art of the Deal.” You will learn a lot. Hassan is particularly insightful of MAGA, “The Cult of Trump” (his book title), and Trump’s use of mind control. Also, look up an article at Psychology Today, called “The Projector in Chief,” with the subtitle, “Trump unwittingly reveals his guilty mind.” Every belittling name he has called his adversaries is how he feels about himself. Like Shifty Schiff And Nervous Nancy.

    Like a Mafia Don, he is sending a very clear message to all his ‘enemies’. “Respect me or you will pay the price.”
    He’s not trying to lead the country, he’s not even pretending to be a good president, he is now trying to rule through fear of repercussions.
