  1. Trump has proven himself to be an injurious and malevolent affliction on this nation and on everyone around him. He is a cloven hoofed agent of chaos and malice, leaving a trail of destruction wherever he goes.

  2. America is at its weakest point in history. Nice job Trump.

    • @Thomas Voloshen

      Did you not watch, & listen, to the entire video? They can’t treat cancer patients. The treatment is computerized & the hospital systems have been _hacked._ They can’t use anything computer related. Multiple United States hospitals have had their entire computer system hacked by _Russians._ How is this _not_ an issue with you?

  3. Donald Trump is more Dangerous than Covid 19
    👉VOTE HIM OUT!!!

    • Burned in medical dogma is more dangerous than CV19. POSTED BY Tonya Green 47 minutes ago in response to a message regarding IV C.  @Altair IV you are correct. My husband had covid in August. Luckily I’m a lowly M.A but I have an 02 sensor in my home. When he said he felt like he was having a hard time catching his breath I tested him and his 02 sat was 85. I immediately took him to the hospital. They tested his 02 sats and it had dropped to 76. They wanted to put him on a ventilator and I said NO. They put him on Oxygen and got his 02 to come up to 89. After further testing he had a blood clot in his lung. They put him on elemis and I told them I wanted him on a Vitamin C and D3 IV. They tried to refuse me and I pushed, they finally did it. He came home 2 days later with oxygen and the blood thinner. 

      After 2 more days he was of all oxygen and was feeling great. I still give him D3 and Vitamin c everyday. Had I not been there he would have been put on a ventilator and they wouldn’t have given him the IV Vitamins either. He is 54, very overweight had high blood pressure and only one kidney. Today he’s doing great. My husband won’t stand up for himself or even me. I switched my advanced directive to my daughter who is an RN and a bulldog like me. I doubt I will get covid since I don’t wear a mask and he drank out of my drink everyday before he was diagnosed with covid and even after. When he came home neither of us wore masks around each other and slept in the same bed. So either I’m immune or I got it and was asymptomatic.  Vitamin C officially recommended for the Covid-19 Virus, Dr. Susan E. Brown. M.D.

      >>”If a family member of mine died due to coronavirus infection, after a doctor refused to use intravenous vitamin C, I would challenge his or her treatment in a court of law. I would win.” (Kenneth Walker, MD, surgeon)<< Using Vitamin C as a Treatment, Dr. Richard Cheng, M.D. PhD.  ICU nurses discuss IV vitamin C therapy for sepsis  The Effects of Vitamin C in Sepsis and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, JAMA Network

      “Given the rapid rate of success of intravenous vitamin C in viral diseases, I strongly believe it would be my first recommendation in the management of corona virus infections.”

      (Victor A. Marcial-Vega, MD) Puerto Rico

      “It is of great importance for all doctors to be informed about intravenous vitamin C. When a patient is already in hospital severely ill, this would be the best solution to help save her or his life.”

      (Karin Munsterhjelm, MD) Finland

      Winning the hospital game

      When faced with hospitalization, the most powerful person in the most entire hospital system is the patient. However, in most cases, the system works on the assumption that the patient will not claim that power. If on your way in you signed the hospital’s legal consent form, you can unsign it. You can revoke your permission. Just because somebody has permission to do one thing doesn’t mean that they have the permission to do everything. There’s no such thing as a situation that you cannot reverse. You can change your mind about your own personal healthcare. It concerns your very life. The rights of the patient override the rules of any institution.

    • Thanks a bunch Donny. You dropped and defunded our National Security. SOB! VOTE! ✌️ 🌊🌊🌊

      Traditional Western and America Cold War thinking and politicians’ lies have plunged the world back into war and racial discrimination. They lack the ability of education and understanding. They only know that when they see Marxism and communism, they scold and want to start a war, but few of them have carefully read the content of Marxism and communism. They will only blindly attack things they are not familiar with. And many of them don’t even know what capitalism is.

      The current situation is very serious. War, fascism, and racial discrimination prevail. Western thinking has returned to the same time as it was in the 1940s, 50s and 1960s, full of violence and hatred. Many people have lost their ability to understand and reason. The brain is replaced by violence and lies.

      The West is currently dominated by political hatred creatures, and fewer and fewer people are learning knowledge wisely. Science is also abandoned

      Extreme politics will destroy science and reason —— Turn people into fascist lunatics The brain is full of war and violence rather than learning and understanding.

      Many Western politicians don’t care about how to repair the miserable situation in the world. They only care about their own group’s economy and political propaganda.

      These Western politicians are destroying the world, not saving the world. They will only create contradictions and war conspiracies.

      Science and learning are the way out for the future of mankind, politics is not.

      He Does Not Care
      And Never Will.

    • @Bruce Willi Bruce AGREED!!

    • I think you meant to say he’d been out cheating. He always is, only the game changes.

  9. Another thing trump proved to be good at, making us sitting targets for cyber attacks! What’s next?!

  10. That’s a pretty bold action by Trump’s Russian ally! But the Russians know only too well that no retaliation is expected from the US under Trump/

  11. trump: “President Putin, who I don’t know but he says very nice things about me, says he didn’t order it.”

  12. Like our hospitals don’t have enough to worry about right now…

  13. Russia wants us to all die. Computers aren’t our friends

  14. Maybe Trump will call Putin about going after these guys. Nah, Putin told him he knows nothing, not coming from Russia. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s those Ukranians or sun spots.

    Just ask Donald Duck to speak with his best bud, Putin.. I’m sure he’ll get it straightened out.. .lol

  16. _NOTE! This is an old style broadside, not a “Tweet”. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you’re deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, and you’re just needing a kick in the pants to go out and vote, read on_
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*


    👉 *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    👉 *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉 *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉 *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉 *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉 *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    👉 *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    👉 *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!


    *The case against the President is prima facie inasmuch as:*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_




    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing. _And we shall do these things because as Americans, we care – above all – about the wellbeing of our fellow citizens._

    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United Statesorabroadbydesignoreffectthat suppresses, deters, delaymanipulates,interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION AND REPLACE THEM WITH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS — IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*
    _(Not Anonymous)_

  17. This criminal president and corrupt government officials must go! vote!!

      @Kurt Tuchscherer your statement is not very kind. I don’t attend rallies. I do have meetings with my Democrat clients who I am trying to get elected and re-elected to local, City, state and national office. We have face-to-face conferences in which we wear a mask, use sanitizer and practice social distancing. I like to do this because I can get a better feel for my client, to see how they react to various situations and to see how they react under pressure. We also have zoom conferences. .
      One thing we have to all be grateful for since this terrible COVID-19 virus struck the world is that now we have over 400 treatments for the virus. Industry has been ramped up to manufacture new state of the art medical equipment. The virus is not only affecting the USA but it is also affecting people around the world. There is also new evidence that has not yet been confirmed from Europe that there has been a change in the protein spike of the COVID-19 and it is mutating.
      I wish you to take proper precautions and stay in good health.

      @Vote Biden2020 if you have any inside information about Trump, I’d like to have it so I can send it to our DNC. We now know clearly from the recently declassified handwritten notations from our former CIA director John Brennan that Trump had nothing to do with any collusion with the Russians. We also have the sworn testimony from the author of the Mueller report, Mueller himself when he stated there was no collusion between Trump and the Russians.
      We do know that the Bidens are clearly in the tank for the Russians and last Sunday and addressed by Putin to the Russian people clearly indicated this when he stated that there was no problem with Hunter Biden being connected with the corrupt Ukrainian gas company. So I might suggest you get off of the dead Trump Russian horse and climb on the very alive Biden Ukrainian Russian horse in order to write it down the street.

    • @T. R. Campbell Oh please start thinking for yourself ..not just listening to your safe ‘soundbites’…

    • T. R. Campbell | October 30, 2020 at 2:19 PM | Reply

      @katy bassett I don’t pay any attention to the soundbites. In fact I try to stay away from the main stream media as much as possible. We have to remember the warning from WikiLeaks about a compliant media in bed with a corrupt and entrenched political class. Perhaps those are the soundbite you are referring to and I would agree that we should not listen to them. Thanks for your post.

  18. Trump has no time to defend his country against Russia. He is too busy attacking it from the inside by spreading the virus.

    • Is there any evidence whatsoever that he ever even SAID he wanted to protect us from Russia? The only way they EVER got Trump to wear a mask was to put a picture of Putin’s butt in it.

    • @Ray Lovelace I guess he took an oath to protect America, but not explicitly from Russia.

    • @juliend10 I guess he had his little fingers crossed.

  19. The U.S. has been so screwed up since Trump has been in office, he’s a freaking psychopath who is some how involved with Russia and the death and cyber attacks on Americans.

    Trump, his family, and the Reps want to leave America on its knees as they know they’re losing so they can claim failure of the Dems to clean up their mess
