      It is because of people like yourself , your narrow Democratic Socialistic concepts .
      You become blinded by rage so quickly, that you are willing condemn the facts presented to you by your own moral authority. The United Nations ,there is not a more globalist organization in existence . Take up your concerns with them , it is a UN generated report .

      Of course you are aware of President Trump’s respect of the UN .

      If we got rid of systemic stupidity we wouldn’t have to worry about systemic dishonesty as much.

      The current president has proven to be just as complicit as the rest…

      General Awareness
      🚨common sense question: If we know that the mega corporations, central banks and financial elite own and control everything, and that they have nefarious plans for world domination; Why would they ever give us the opportunity to change that? Why?







      If you reply BEFORE you actually watch these, you’re only proving that we’re as dumb they think we are. I need a rational explanation for this..

    • Michael Langeland | September 3, 2020 at 2:21 PM | Reply

      @General Awareness I like your approach, but the problem is the left and right in this country are so diametrically opposed to one another that we could never work together as a team. Im a constitutional conservative libertarian so im clearly biased in saying that on the American right we support limited government, federalism, the rule of law, free market capitalism, and the right to live your life as long as yoh dont violate the constitutional & God given rights of others. Think classical liberal.

      The left has become a hodgepodge of Anarchists, Marxists, Islamists, ect all of which oppose Western law. They beleieve in a massive welfare state, government run industry, medicine, and education. They also generally oppose the constitution. They also implement identity politics and a social heirarchy based on skin color, gender, and sexual orientation rather than character and actions of the person.

      Based on my viewpoints I literally cannot come together with people who hate my country, claim that me as a white person am automatically racist, that as a male am sexist, and as a Christian hate everyone who isnt Christian. How can I “work together” with people that have that sort of world view.

  12. The comments give me so much hope rn

    • @Amaru the Shining One It’s funny how people actually try to blame any virus or anything on people that have to do with vaccines or creators of vaccines lmao😂💀Like they actually sound absurd and sped.

      @Jaxamillian People like Fauic push Germ Theory and never address Terrain Theory so its very biased. They just assume all viruses are going to make us sick and the average person knows thats not the case. Look at the flu we have 4 Influenza types and many mutations so we come in contact with different serotypes all the time and yet many of us dont get the flu. What we know now is that we are obtaining long term immunity to Covid19 pretty much the same thing with the first version SARS Cov which gave us T helper cell immunity for up to 17 years and antibodies for up to 3 years eradicating that disease. Covid19 is 79% identical to SARS Cov and the only real difference is in the spike protein.

    • Me too

    • @George B. Wolffsohn Please restate the question so I understand what you are asking.

  14. They listen to Fauci when they agree with him. But MSNBC is silent on Fauci approving in person voting because it doesn’t fit their agenda.

  15. Fauci is loving the spotlight and doesn’t want this to ever end.

  16. We at least as a herd we have become immune to the media’s lies

    • @Thomas Butler Does that include EVERY news organisation worldwide, that criticises Trump?

    • @August Polca Are you that stupid or you just love playing dumb. Covid-19 has been around for over 20 plus years. Look it up it is online and posted on World Health Organization. More people have died from influenza and pneumonia not to mention heart disease and stroke. MSM blames Trump for what???? If the temperature goes up at 102 you will blame the president. Seriously look up your sources before you post something intelligent in this conversation. If you have children please educate your kids, do not let them grow up dumb in this day and age.

    • @AO I don’t have children, but if I did I wouldn’t let them listen to the current president nor his supporters. On account of the overwhelming stupidity that both have shown to be self evident. The current rate of death do to influenza according to the cdc, across all the currently documented variants accountable is somewhere between 24,000 and 65,000. As opposed to covid 19 which will likely exceed 300,000 by December according to the cdc. But hey there is good news you cannot contract someone else’s heart disease, and pneumonia is fairly curable if caught and treated in good time. But hey how dare I have the audacity to expect the current president to take time out of his busy schedule of screwing pornstars and giving his oligarchial cronies( both foreign and domestic) tax breaks to actually put together an organized effort to safeguard the nation from a global pandemic.

    • @August Polca Seriously that’s the best you’ve got??? Pornstar??? The Center for Disease Control admits it’s data are flawed and over exaggerated. Hospitals were empty during the pandemic, how do I know??? I work in a hospital Doctors are diagnosing people who are having symptoms for bronchitis, allergic rhinosinusitis, mild-low grade fever due to ear infection and pneumonia calling it coronavirus. Heck nobody minds getting more stimulus printed money from the government when someone gives false information but that is being truthful to people and tax payers. Some physicians are diagnosing their patients Covid exposure without actual symptoms. Like I said, you grab an animal randomly and they will show up as positive Covid. Do more research on this to fill your mind with real facts. Fauci the garden Gnome was the head director of NIH Allergy back in the days 2005 – current, he was aware that Covid was in existence, yet no answer for vaccines. Vaccines will not protect you identical to Influenza vaccines. Are you aware that there is an average death of over 5-8 million children dying worldwide every year????? that is in the millions not 300,000. Many have tested positive for Covid 19 I will admit that, but many or the majority do not even know they have it. YOu seem like an educated person, look this up seriously so that your mind is not stuck on porstar. Please get a better research source than Pornhub, MSNBC, CBS, CNN, these media are the gold star definition of bias EXCEPT for Pornhub of’course.

    • maxhugen think about what you just said…. every organization world wide actually does criticize trump except for conservative networks… that makes the other networks totally liberal. Just like Hollywood is liberal, so too is the media establishment. In the 2016 Wikileaks e-mail dump it was revealed that the media is literally getting orders straight from the DNC to present to you twisted “news” and democrat narratives. They even created black lives matter by brainwashing young kids. Wake up

  17. “herd immunity not a fundamental strategy” hasn’t it worked for literally all of human history?

    • ​@Tyler Stillday Its not just our own existence we need to worry about. We need to go on living a life where we care about and for each other. It matters when people suffer and die. It matters more when people die and we stop caring to the point where we sit back and feel good about making no effort to prevent it.

    • @Tyler Stillday You have been asked several times now, I know. I am just curious to know what you think herd immunity is. Are you avoiding the answer to this question or am I just missing it somewhere?

    • @Tyler Stillday Its important to establish the concepts we are discussing so we all know we are in fact discussing the same thing. I get the impression that you are convolving the concept of immunity with herd immunity. Is my impression right or are you coming at it from an angle I am not understanding?

      @Carolyn Talbot Now I know your spewing you biased opinion. Ive been over countless hours of his videos and the studies published and your wrong in ever way. Besides not only did my state not lock down and the majority has not does not wear masks or social distance and we are doing just fine. Ive had the great privilege of living a completely normal life this entire pandemic while all of you are cowering in fear over a corona virus. The most common viruses in the world all of which are low mortality. I find it amazing how so many are living in fear and yet Ive never stopped living my life and I havnt been sick in almost 20 years funny how that is. My governor looked at the science and he made it clear we will never follow protocols like this for any virus ever again. We took care of the high risk and let the rest go about their lives. Thats what you do. You can spew your fear mongering but it wont work and it wont change the fact Covid19 is going away. Thats the hard science and not you or any other uneducated person is going to change that.

    • @King Slechtvalk I have family that live hundreds of miles away in a relatively sparsely populated area. They have had next to no contact with the virus just like you. They have be able to live relatively normal lives in spite of what is going on elsewhere They haven’t had a case in their area for weeks now. They still wear masks indoors and all the rest of it, in spite of that and rightly so.
      Lets not forget that it only took one case to start this whole thing off in the first place. That grew to millions very quickly. It happened once and with so many that still have it, the potential for it to spread there or to your area has increased dramatically since then. Feeling invulnerable is probably not the right emotion you should be feeling at this time.

  18. That dude is going to get PAID once this vaccine comes out…

  19. HAHA, we won, the people see through the lies!

    Screw you MSM
