  1. Cities all over the country are finding out that they had to pay for Trump’s election campaign rallies.

    1. @Stefan Jakubowski and be subject to governing authorities?? Yeah no, that’s called not America….. here WE are the governing bodies, or at least we were until the establishment and corporations gained control…

    2. @Billy Goat We’ve all played this game too many times with you people. Your idea of a reputable source is any source that tells you what you want to hear. Reputable sources are ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC, not Fox or the other Treason News networks, not Russian propaganda, not fringe right sources nobody has heard of. And YOU’RE the ones claiming Orange Sack’o Feces was cheated with zero proof of election fraud. You want proof that Biden is the legitimate President? The votes were counted and certified and President Biden is sitting in the White House. Spare us the standard lines about how “the proof will come out any day now”.

    3. @Dennis Harrell lol abc, nbc, cbs, cnn, and msnbc are trusted sources???? that’s a good one, as if they arent all water carries for the establishment.. and I agree about fox….

    4. @Billy Goat Exactly the response I expected. You can’t defend your position with facts so you ridicule the messenger, insanely claiming that all the major news networks in the world, except ONE, are lying.

  2. So what you are saying is that those opportunists have jumped on an opportunity to do what they were always planning to do…. shocking

    1. This is the same party that rode the horse of ” tax breaks to the rich will stimulate the economy” for decades! Their socophants know nothing. How can anyone not believe they wouldn’t go ape $&:+ over an election?

    2. This is the party who thinks Jewish Space Lasers exist and that the Moon landing was faked. There’s no cure.

    1. @Ravenclaw Neversmiles So officials can take the pass words from voting machines, post them to right wing sites and it’s not a thing?

    2. yep…just like destruction of DC and Minny, Spokane, Portland, Baltimore, Philly, St.Louis, NY, must be some cities in Flo. and Texass, just lock them up.

    1. @N 827 keep hollering into your lonely echo chamber. Maybe someday it’ll turn out that you’re right—NOT.

  3. All the money needed to replace those voting machines should come out of Republicans Pockets not the Tax Payers.

    1. Agreed, it should not be taxpayers who pay for it.

      Also, I have been searching in vain for Rachel’s story apologizing for being taken in by Cuomo and saying he was the real president. For being fooled about who he really is.
      I mean it happens, people get fooled sometimes, but I would think she owes some statement to her viewers for all the fawning stories of the creep.

    2. @keir farnum those are the type of rebuttles given when you have zero to say except liar… SEEMS TO BE A DEMOCRATIC THEME

    1. @Mike Currie coincidentally, im from Michigan. The good news is we passed redistricting reform back in 2018. So this time around we should have an independent bipartisan comission deciding districts and hopefully can prevent gerrymandering…hopefully.

      But you just know the GOP is gonna fight that tooth and nail.

    2. @SuchNewt Point of Constitutional Procedure, the Vice-President is The President of The Senate. The “president pro tempore” is designated to preside over the Senate when the Vice-President is not in chambers (which is almost never, EXCEPT when there is a 50-50 split between the caucuses).

  4. Let’s just pray that the new voting machines are not the one’s Ivanka Trump received trademarks for from the Chinese government!

    1. Mike Lindell promoted those machines on David Pakman’s interview and said at the end of the Liar Griftposium they would give the machines to the government for free.

    2. I always wondered what you guys need voting machines for. In Germany we count the votes by hand. Every ballot is counted multiple times by multiple people in separate rooms who don’t know who the others are. Then the numbers from the multiple independent counts are compared to check if they match before they are being reported to the next higher level.

    3. @Piotr Trebisz how do you know ballots weren’t tampered with or replaced? (Before the counting)
      With our machines, we have an electronic record of the paper ballot AS it was cast, then the paper ballot, a physical, unhackable receipt if you will, and Ballot Counting Machines, which have to match up to the Ballot Recording Machines.
      It’s a very secure system, nowhere near as fragile as republicans’ pride.

    4. @Robert Emery Our human counters do exactly the same what your machines do as well, only by hand and double and tripple checked by other humans. Sounds like a lot of paperwork and it is a lot of paperwork, but it’s OK because Germans love paperwork The thing is that – unless you have telepaths – you can’t hack humans from far away. Therefore we don’t have this circus here after elections.

    1. @R Robin Exactly I think most people getting tired of government and the politicians, its time most people realise that most of these politicians greedy and don’t have the country at heart . Both parties needs cleaning up We have to come together and fight for our rights .Hope you staying safe ?

    2. @Yvonne Braun THAT’S NOT TRUE ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS AS WE HAVE SEEN WITH THE RESIGNATION OF THE NEW YORK GOVENOR

    3. Things are not looking good. If this California Newsom recall is successful, the Fascist GQP could easily take back the Senate since Feinstein needs to step down and a Republican replacement for Newsom can fill the position by California law. I fully expect the 2022 and 2024 elections to be stolen by the Fascist GQP. They will cry fraud if a Democrat wins, provide no evidence, and send the decision to their Republican controlled state legislatures who will pick the Republican candidate. It’s not like I’m making this up, or guessing. This has been discussed and written about for months. We are in incredible danger.

    1. Trump literally has financial power world wide. He will never be charged with anything and never spend 1 minute in jail. He has garnered special interests in all sectors of the United States and the world. A simple way he hid these special interests, is he ran his businesses while in office and refused to release his taxes (as all presidents have done since 1976) So there was no transparency. Then he raised his membership to his most lucrative golf course country clubs from 100k to 200k. Anyone literally could get a membership there and try to get favor by Trump and none of it is traceable. So he has very powerful people behind him, he has judges he’s appointed, he had numerous people in really high positions all of them causing smaller levels of corruption, and no one will cross him. He is going to get away with this … and the worse I see happening is he will settle in lawsuits, and pay for it via his war chest that he got from his own donators. This has been the largest looting of the American Taxpayer in the history of the United States and it isn’t over just yet.

    2. Federally he is basically protected. We have to rely on states to bring charges. Currently, its NY AG and Georgia. He is even being investigated by Scotland regarding his golf resort, that hasn’t turned a profit for 16 years. They believe that club is being used for money laundering.

    1. They should sue “45” and the Republicans pushing the big lie to require the people RESPONSIBLE to pay for them.

    2. @Sue Zbell I wanted to say it was Trump’s lies and manipulation that caused all of this…but I was afraid the TRUMP’LICANS would come at me throwing boxes of medical masks!

    3. What an ignorant thing to say. You are truly dumbed down. Propaganda. Propaganda has made you stupid.
      I feel sorry for you.

    1. @Judy Vargas and for his “rallies” to pay for police, and the venues. Many of those cities didn’t have money in their budgets for it. And that includes visits made before he was “elected” in 2016.

    2. We should send the democrats the 3b$ bill for the cities they burned down last summer and compensate families of those that got killed during

    3. @Dia Lynn Top 3 ways to tell when a Republican is losing a debate: “Hunter Biden’s Laptop”, “Hillary’s Emails,” “George Floyd Demonstrations.”

    4. @Jim Speiser its pointing out the double standard that is the democratic party. Dont forget to mention the border wall that Biden is spending 5b$ to stop and letting covid illegals into our country. I could go on for days. You peeps are mentally unstable and lacking morals.

  5. Make the RepubliCon parties of every state that allows this crap to happen, pay for new election equipment. Pottery Barn rules, you broke it, you bought it.

    1. @Prinzezz QTPi Have you noticed …I post document facts and numbers ….you post incomplete opinion ( very entertaining though )

    2. @Black Raven Perhaps you should try google .. granted they are slow sometimes
      eg… it was just several weeks ago , they at last posted and document Failed Brzezinski doctrine( yes Mikia’s Dad ) …it was a flawed and short sighted from day one

    3. @Daniel Arcadia Dominion Voting Systems Corporation is a company that sells electronic voting hardware and software, including voting machines and tabulators, in the United States and Canada.[1] The company’s headquarters are in Toronto, Ontario, and Denver, Colorado..

    4. @MeanGeneSanDiego…you are late to conversation , no offence , we have established , Dominion is a foreign company and refuses a legal and moral request to be 100 % transparent …note a documented shady pass as described by Sen. Warren and CNN in-depth investigation

  6. This reinforces the mantra, “Never listen to a RepubliCon, never trust a RepubliCon, never vote for a RepubliCon

    1. @Sukhbir Sekhon 50% of the population is about 180,000,000.
      The voters for trump amounted to about 21% of that total.

    2. @daveapplemotors
      Yes 5 year olds can’t vote. I think even you know I was talking about the usa electorate. And 74,222,958 voted for trump or 46.8% of votes cast. Do you still think I don’t have a valid point? Perhaps you could address the main issue of USA divided down the middle.

    3. @daveapplemotors His 75 million voters are enough to keep democrats out of power for years. Democrats must never get lazy.

    4. @rjwood6314
      Where are your figures to prove what you’re saying. Here I’ll do your work for you and get you 5he figures. Let’s see your silky maths skills bucko.

  7. Anyone wondering why facts don’t matter hasn’t been to a church or mosque in a while. Blind faith is declared and encouraged. That’s the whole point!

    1. @miss rayelyn hurting your feelings isn’t a crime. Nor is it a reason to silence people.
      So because you don’t agree with me I should have you censored ?
      You people are weak and pathetic. Childish

    2. @miss rayelyn we are definitely moving in that direction. When the whole point of having a church ministry is so that the elders of the church live a sumptuous lifestyle, complete with mansions, and yachts, and jets, and vacation homes, not to mention lobbying groups spending massive sums on political contributions, something has gone awry.

    3. Depends on the church. My local church was responsible and reasonable about this and suspended all services when the pandemic began, and even today, is still closed. Pastor simply records his sermons and uploads them to his youtube channel for the congregation to watch safely at home.

      Science and Faith are not polar opposites. They’re not a zero sum game. You don’t need to get rid of one to have the other, its entirely possible to follow both. One of the twelve apostles of Jesus was a Doctor. A man of science.

    4. @Derah That’s good to hear. A lot of evangelical churches are very backward. They may as well be in the Dark Ages.

  8. They need to be careful that they don’t buy Ivanka’s voting machines! You know, the business she has with China!

    1. That may be one of the things that trump definitely would have in mind ! ..trump and the repigs would enjoy nothing more than to be able to flick a switch and overturn an election…I hope Biden is listening to all this because if it continues, every day the US looks worse and everyday the traitors are getting bolder …Send the troops in and stop this BS.

    2. @Ed Kelly It has always worried me that Trump let people die while Ivanka has a coffin business! Spooky, huh?

  9. I’m originally from Grand Junction (Mesa County, Colorado). That couldn’t happen to a more conservative community. God, I hope she isn’t related to me!

  10. The RNC should be sued to pay for the states having to replace the machines. This cost should be on their backs and not on taxpayers
