  2. Glad to see them splitting the “ deaths” now. Death with covid /death from covid

    • When you get thousands of money from the gov for every body you have that says covid, every body you have turns to covid. Hospitals around america have been without money and proper funding for a long time, so can you blame them..

    • Cant* blame them

    2:32 I like that😍💋 💝💖❤️

  8. Said this last year when they ran their simulation of how this “virus” would play out. New strain COVID 21 coming like they said. Vaccines will be mandatory for supplies. Great Debt Relief in the works as well. Universal Basic Income. This is all about controlling the masses. It’s not about helping us. Politicians have lied before and they will continue to lie. Period. It’s in their dna.

  13. Hey Gov explain the Colorado coroner who had 5 covid deaths and 2 of them died of gunshots but listed as covid because they tested positive 30 days prior. Now open up the city.

    Jared Polis is one of the richest people in politics, yet here he sits mandating we bow down to his announcements. I’ve got an idea how about you shove a vaccine where the sun don’t shine and get out of colorado business owners way. Your destroying families and lives with your draconian lock downs

  17. Ya get tested because if you have a cold it’s corona if it’s the flu it’s covid if it’s a bike wreck it’s covid
    Heart attack covid ..

  18. *JAMA Study:* “Only 1 of 32 COVID survivors testing positive had live virus.” That’s a 97% false-positive rate for “covid” diagnosis.

  19. Bitcoin is the feature investing in it now is the wesest thing to do now especially the current rise

    • He’s not like other brokers that will start telling you stories and excuses why they trade didn’t go well after collecting your money

    • When someone is straight forward and good at what he does, people will always speak for them. For me I would say give Mr Clinton of financial education a try and you be happy you did

    • Panzi Williams | December 31, 2020 at 1:27 AM | Reply

      Mr Clinton has brought me out of the wrenches and to a better living through trading options, I encourage newbies to trade with him

    • Robert Mellette | December 31, 2020 at 1:27 AM | Reply

      Without the help of Mr Clinton of financial education I would still been in abject poverty struggling with life, that’s the best testimony gotten so far after years of great loss here on YouTube, I do thank him and recommend him for those out there who’re confused about Bitcoin trading too or make very low profit

    • ijj i realy broke cause of  covid but you can save me with $20 to feed my family please save me
