  1. fear, hate and lies…
    are all the GOP have left to sell…
    after the orange con man…
    fleeced them of their credibility…

    1. @Refund Replay Right, after the past 4 years, I’m glad we finally have a president that speaks above a 5th grade vocabulary and understands science. We finally have adults in the White House again.

    2. And yet they still cling to his coat tails.Dump tried to destroy the Country and he has destroyed the GOP.

  2. Oh God how long is this going to cont. Why can’t the police or a judge stop them ? All theses criminals

  3. Prosecutors in a Texas court alleged that a retired Air Force reservist who carried plastic zip tie-like restraints on the Senate floor may have intended to restrain lawmakers.
    Chansley’s attorney said he is not violent.

    “He loved Trump, every word. He listened to him. He felt like he was answering the call of our president,” Chansley’s attorney Al Watkins said. “My client wasn’t violent. He didn’t cross over any police lines. He didn’t assault anyone.” Watkins said Chansley also hopes for a presidential pardon.

    Prosecutors describe those who took over the Capitol as “insurrectionists” and offer new details about Chansley’s role in the violent siege last week, including that after standing at the dais where Vice President Pence had stood that morning, Chansley wrote a note saying “it’s only a matter of time, justice is coming.”

    Chansley later told the FBI he did not mean the note as a threat but said the Vice President was a “child-trafficking traitor” and went on a long diatribe about Pence, Biden and other politicians as traitors.

    So now Pence is a “child-trafficking traitor” too.
    Apparently we’re all child-trafficking traitors, according to Trump’s cultists. These people are total and complete nutters.

    1. One lawyer actually argued for his clients release saying he didn’t know it was an officer he was beating with a skateboard.

  4. Thanks for saying what everyone around the world can see. Everyone except for Republican lawmakers apparently. This whole situation is headed for disaster. America seems incapable of stopping it.

  5. Mr figluzi is an articulate, believable, trustworthy representative of the good, honest men and women at the FBI.
    I have never heard him say one word that wasn’t verifiably correct and passionate.
    I appreciate these kind of Americans who work hard every day to protect this country!
    Thank you Frank for your integrity and fidelity to the truth.

    1. @Pat Mahinie didn’t loose my morals I know what they stand for do you ? I was raised right by awesome parents

    2. @Kevin Santich Hi Kevin, I’m certainly not delusional and I know that your facts are really disinformation. Have an awesome night bud.

    3. @Pat Mahinie Did you just say that “facts are really disinformation”… Seek help pal, nighty night

    4. @Kevin Santich Are you trying to put words in my mouth again Kevin. I said that you are not using facts but instead disinformation. You certainly have a marxist arrogance about you.

    5. @Pat Mahinie You said “your facts are really disinformation”… Cleaning it up to fit your narrative after the fact doesn’t bode well…Now, to put it simply, facts are not debatable, as they are facts… This is like arguing with a flat earther, I don’t expect I’ll change your mind, just feel compelled to point out that you are wrong

  6. The Coup is still alive and well Push Back tell them the Truth Trump is trying to stay out of Jail

    1. Nailed it.. I say the same he wants that imunity he can get pinched” he is a civilian that con man willing to do whatever, to stay out of jail and it’s obvious sad times we live in unfortunately…

  7. Daily Reminder: On January 6, 2021, Impeached former President Trump attacked America during a joint session of Congress.

    1. And just like the fire extinguisher story, we will soon find out your statement was false.

    2. @Richie Tattersall I’m still hoping that will happen. The only thing that confuses me is who exactly can invoke it? Schumer? Harris? Or just any random member of Congress?

    1. @West House I cannot enlighten you because you have a closed, fixed mind and are not open to hearing any fact that does not validate your already formed conclusion. You are not open to views counter to your own. I would only give you vfc a platform to spread your opinions, and l am not foolish enough to willingly be your stooge. ‘Bye.

    2. @Thyalwaysseek At 77, l think l am past drafting age! But for those who are not, didn’t we abolish the draft in favor of an all volunteer army?

    3. @Nancy Ross lol that was the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard. I literally ask for information and you refuse to even consider providing it because you think I’m closed minded. How can I know what you know without being told?

      Its funny you call me closed minded for wanting to hear your thoughts. Closed-minded people don’t want their ideas challenged. You clearly are unwilling to be challenged so have refused to participate. Best of luck to you, feel free to come back if you change your mind. May you have a good evening.

    4. @West House You are entitled to your opinion, l am entitled to mine. If l thought you would be honest and open minded, l would have told you. I have determined, correctly or incorrectly, that you would not have listened to me with an open mind. If l am wrong, l apologize. Also, people who call other people ignorant do not inspire a great deal of trust. Especially when l am one of the least ignorant people with whom you wished to have a discussion. ‘Bye.

    5. @Nancy Ross if ignorance was something that could be self assessed, there would be significantly less arrogant fools in the world. How can one judge themselves based on what they do not know.

  8. How can we expect law-enforcement to help overturn the indoctrination when it seems nearly half of them are indoctrinated themselves? You don’t ask an arsonist to help you catch and stop another arsonist.

    1. There is no indoctrination. These people have consciously invested themselves in what they know to be lies. They are accomplices, not victims.

    2. Hi Autumn Bryant, the side you support has no intentions of helping minorities. They are just using them as tools to gain a political advantage. It truly is disgusting.

    3. Actually that’s exactly how you catch another aronist. They think similar. However since the police feel that it’s okay to be judge Dred some military participating in the overthrow of the government it looks pretty bleak. Russia needs to call their puppet home.

    4. @Sophie Dockx You are unbelievably naive. They were vulnerable to becoming part of something—a group, a political party, anything to be relevant to someone or something else. Many are too uneducated to question the veracity of a superb salesman, and Trump could sell water to a drowning man. They are not able to question whether he is selling the truth or a lie, but they are going to buy whatever he is selling. Unfortunately, he is the epitome of the crooked used car salesman and has been selling them a lie. I hope this cult’s life is about to expire. Our democracy depends upon it.

  9. America, where lies and nefarious people are given high places of honor, and where the truth and morality and people with integrity are now ridiculed and punished!!!

  10. Mr Figluzi, Malcolm Nance, I try to not miss whatever they’re reporting. Always professional,factual and straight to the point.
