    Now the quiet part is being said out loud, with no apology.

    • @PeacockPoverty I don’t think any race of people is better than anybody else. What is good for one is good for all. If white supremacist we’re going and having an all-out attack on people all over. People would not have to fake racial attacks. There are just as many black racist as they are white racist. Until people recognize that fact we will never be free of the racism controversy….

      I spoke with many of these who fled their countries that was infested with corruptions, socialism, and dictatorship..
      I’m sure they had experienced it all and are more informed than a lot of people..
      One of them told me “ I don’t care if I love Trump or not, I’m voting for a president, not for someone to sleep with in bed” lol

      lol.. make sense..I deal with many of them.. I often hear them saying “ we wished we were born in this country “ Many still don’t understand why some of us who were born in this country still chasing for the minimum wages.. as one told me
      “ if someone was born in the USA, healthy, and over 26y but still chasing for the minimum wages or have no job then it’s their problem, not the system problem “..
      I couldn’t argue much because I don’t know what to say 🤣

      It’s funny such a controversial figure.. One book store owner told me if you go to eBay or Amazon and type “ Trump book” you’ll see endless of listening.. he said in terms of books or articles that was written on him/about him, Trump is ranked # 3 after the #1 Bible and #2 Napoleon!

    if he didn’t feel threatened by the Rioters, why didn’t he stay on the floor and listen to the concerns of those that stormed the Capitol?

    • Very simple. Two possibilities:
      * He lied and denies he was afraid.
      * He is really involved and didn’t want to show that.

      Exactly! Johnson was just as afraid as the rest of the people in there and there’s a more than good chance he would have been attacked. Because if he was confronted he would have had to make a choice, try and stop them by calling on them to not to trash the congress and people or join them to stand with them to save his own neck! Damned if he does and seen on tv taking part in an insurrection and damned if he doesn’t and face the wrath of the mob!

    • The quiet part are the crime statistics which they actively ban on this network because they don’t want people speaking the truth.

      @Ivan McBleedy you’re insane. Hahaha. Not even the cameramen or the lefty blm activists in there were scared. You want bloodlust? Look at the commie antifa and blm terrorists that burn down buildings and were throwing molotov cocktails at the white house. You lefties need to stop banging kids and learn something about the world.

  4. Good thing Ron Johnson isn’t running for re-election again.

    • Bill Gates Collaborated with China Firm BGI Genomics that Was Caught Mining Americans’ Data
      Published March 8, 2021 at 3:53pm
      BGI Genomics—the Chinese Communist Party-linked genomics firm flagged by U.S. officials as “mining” the DNA of Americans—has collaborated extensively with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The National Pulse can reveal.

      The company has recently come under fire following a 60 Minutes exposé on the company’s use of COVID-19 tests to “collect, store and exploit biometric information” on American citizens, according to former U.S. intelligence officials. What’s more, a recent Reuters article linked the firm to the Chinese Communist Party’s military.

      In addition to the Obama administration enabling the firm to gain a foothold in the U.S., the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation played a critical role in BGI’s American expansion.

      Blaming all of Wisconsin for Ron Johnson is like blaming all of Florida for Rick Scott. Not fair, since a large portion of those states did not vote for either of those nuts.

    • Ric Ladouceur | March 13, 2021 at 5:31 PM | Reply

      @Constituent A a majority did vote for him. If you didn’t you should be trying to recall and impeach him. The majority need to do the correct thing. He’s representing the far right wing nuts.

      Facts: Wisconsin re-elect this man in 2016 at that time he was fine until Mitch and the Former Guy own this man to do what they said. Now Ronny betrayed Wisconsin and he doesn’t care except playing politics. I hope they god rid of him in 2022.

    So many well educated adults in Congress with the mind set of a 3 year old.

    • So Many QULTs in ALL Level Govt!
      Theocratic Fascist Takeover

    • Well educated? The country that let preexisting conditions endanger the lives and livelihoods of their own people in order to enrich the wealthy is anything but well educated.

    • @Gerald McKencie Good point because I have never ever seen those statistics reported on the main stream news. It’s always “the other deserves it because” I am considered white btw because the native part of my mother was destroyed and dismissed.

      Come back to me, CM, man. I’m willing to let the insult slide, assuming it was just a knee-jerk reaction to the argument, the assumption that somebody who doesn’t agree is a supremacist.

      I just want to understand how you come to these conclusions. You cite the FBI as if they are the truthsayers, and you refer to them as Trump’s FBI. First and foremost, they are Establishment, and don’t forget it.

      So you happily accept their explanation, despite the abundance of evidence which contradicts it, evidence which is in plain view, right in front of your eyes?

      Is there anything they could tell you that you won’t believe?

  13. They also murdered law enforcement.

    • @Troll Account Sure, and I’m sorru if you are hurting. But you could take a pain killer and have a little lie down to feel better, or just stop listening to the Qweirdos and magatards and their lies.

    • Johan Nilsson | March 13, 2021 at 10:00 PM | Reply

      @Troll Account That is simply not true, as Nick Warren has explained. But even if you discount the violence, BLM and the insurrection on January 6 are not comparable at all. While BLM fought for racial justice and against police brutality, the insurrectionists at the Capitol fought to disrupt the democratic process, to stop the peaceful transfer of power from an incumbent President who lost the election to the newly elected President, elected by the people. The former fight was just and in furtherance of civil rights, while the latter was the complete opposite: criminal, against the will of the people and based on a lie perpetrated by the former President and his Republican henchmen.

      @Johan Nilsson That is true. Just because you can justify it in your mind doesn’t mean it never happened. Facts don’t care about your feelings, buddy.

  14. That is what he said in public. Now imagine what he says in private.

    • @TheDiamond2009 the violence that I remember from the BLM protests was Kyle Rittenhouse killing two people and shooting another, a man in Albuquerque who is part of a right-wing wanna be military “New Mexico Civil Guard” group, shot and killed a person.
      Racist Boogaloo boy Steven carillo shot two security officers in front of a federal building in Oakland. One officer died, and the other was severely injured. Plus others racist white-wing right-wing ps

    • @TheDiamond2009 I think it’s fair to say most of the violence that happened during the black lives matter protest was caused by racist Trump loving right wing provocateurs. And all of the violence that occurred during the capitol Insurrection were caused by racist Trump loving right-wing provocateurs

    • dems love racist biden

  15. You can look at those people breaching the capital and don’t find them wholesome. It’s Ron Johnson that I find scary.

    • Because you can’t control him.

    • @Q is Fictional Ron Johnson did do one thing right. He made the Senate read the entire COVID relief bill out loud in front of everyone and exposed the blatant corruption of both parties with how overly inflated and full of port it was. Yet, you want to condemn him for revealing this to everyone? Why?!

  16. Ron Johnson should be removed for his horrible ideas of people based on their skin and ideas of fairness.

      Although you’ve fallen into that classic trap, Daddy, of believing that Antifa is a group, rather than an “idea”.

    • @TheDiamond2009 How can an idea take over city blocks “Chaz“… how can an idea burn down courthouses, dry hump statues, and act like animals in the street For over 200 days?… That is the definition of terrorist

    • TheDiamond2009 | March 14, 2021 at 8:55 AM | Reply

      Well I must admit, Trap Daddy, I have on occasion dry-humped a statue. Although it was all perfectly harmless fun and I was exceedingly drunk at the time.

      These people genuinely try to defend what happened in 2020 as being dwarfed by the gravity of the Capitol assault, or try to argue it was people on the right who were doing it. It’s laughable. It was all left-wing fuelled violence, designed with one single aim. Politicians stayed silent at best, and some encouraged it, as did the media. These people are morally corrupt.

    • @TheDiamond2009 Maybe “those people” should quit committing crimes consider Fentanyl Floyd he was a career felon that once pointed a shot gun at a pregnant woman’s stomach during a armed robbery… karma has a way of catching up with these folks but at the end of the day He was a skidmark on society and will not be missed

    Ron Johnson is morally and intellectually unfit to hold any political office. Should be put in prison for sedition.

  20. RIDICULOUS: it was a terrorist attack, plain and simple. Is anyone truly surprised?

    • COVID is CCP’s BioWeapon. search risk-life-flee-china virologist’s twitter @DrLiMengYAN1 and her gene evidence reports, get a Gene guy you TRUST(not the famous ones on TV) to verify her reports, she has waken the right(she had to talk to the right 1st because the right was in power), help her waken the left!!

      PS:why CCP didn’t allow wuhan people go anywhere in china, but allowed them to go overseas?
