    1. Actually, they don’t care, because they need all that MONEY. They have to spend it on expanding Bill Barr’s illegal, unconstitutional, SS style, Secret Police units. Do you think they don’t KNOW they’re ALL GOING TO JAIL? They can’t ALLOW elections!? You should be having Secret Police OUTLAWED, instead of letting them EXPAND? Do you WANT a Dictatorship?

    2. These senators go to bed with stomachs filled with steak and lobster while millions of children go to bed hungry.

Dr Ekpen ogiogun brought back joy to my life and to my family again by bringing my husband back to me with his spiritual powers, by making me to get pregnant, by curing my sister’s cancer disease, by also curing my cousin’s hiv virus with his special powers, and he also made my step brother to win a lottery of 2 million dollars. Dr Ekpen ogiogu  is really a gifted, amazing, and a very good man who truly knows how to do his job ogiogunr and if not for him what would my life turn to? Dr Ekpen ogiogun thank you so much and i will never stop talking about your great deeds.

    1. William H, this isn’t a dating site but I admire your commitment to finding a life partner, good luck with that.

    2. @TJ Abston I didn’t want to give snakes a bad name, so I opted for an “Extinction event” species.

    1. News Flash>>> Joe already lost by proclaiming” I will go down as the most progressive president in history”. And if  that’s not enough President Trump just received the endorsement of Law enforcement which he didn’t even have in 2016. And if that still doesn’t do it then Joe will be hammered in the debates if he shows up. And if he doesn’t show up to the debates then people will know he’s to weak to defend what he been told to believe.  Either way Joe loses. Democrats are in panic mode and using the same old race card mixed with the new phobe
      Card. Joe admitted to blackmailing Ukraine for them to fire the prosecutor investigating Burisma were his son Hunter had a $80,000 a month no show job. Quid-pro-quo anyone?

    2. @Don Williams but he still kept US alive and the world loving US…now…they detest US cuz of his incompetence….

    3. @Calvin Walker Walker How did he keep U.S. alive when he was from NAFTA and TPP which sends and sent jobs out of America? If a country DETEST us because Trump came in and said AMERICA FIRST and for those countries to PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE, so be it. You don’t believe in AMERICA before other countries?

  1. All of the Republicans should have to live in everyone’s else’s shoes take away their money ,and jobs for months, and tell them to figure out how to put food on the table.

    1. @Don Williams

      Do you know how?

      I do. And it is a set of rules that all of Congress is guilty of profiting from.

      And no. Not all GOP reps “come in” rich.

      You need to do more than ask vapid questions and think you’re into something. Do some research into how an actual individual has made money. Pick one. Do Bernie for example. But you pick. Research one person all the way through.

      And then do the same with Mitch McConnell.

      Also: it does not matter. Trump is teargassing unarmed women on American streets. I will simply advise you – and anyone – to not openly support that within the reach of my fist. And since I can’t punch Trump in his pansy NY playboy face, I will punch a ballot for Biden in November.

    2. What a shame that people have to beg for stimulus funds during pandemic, while no one asked Trump what he did with the 1st stimulus funds!!!!!!
      My investigation report on how Trump spent $3 TRILLION ($3,000,000,000,000) stimulus funds that his administration received to combat coronavirus (including $100s of billions for testing, masks and other PPE). Yet 157K deaths, 4.7M infected and 40M jobless!
      Please read to see who got the most of $3 Trillion and for what.

      (Link to the PDF format of my reports is also available in comments section of the videos – there are more reports on my channel on Trump’s propaganda & conspiracy theories, including WHO, HCQ, 5G, China, etc.)

    3. @mike boultinghouse the traitors rigged the 2016 election amd we got tRump. So whats your point?
      Btw, this progressive has plenty of firearms

    4. I honestly believe that if they charged every one of them for their easily proven crimes, stripped them of every dime that they illegally obtained committing those very crimes, then recirculated their net worth back to the American people, it would save our economy on the ground and our reserves while the experts treat this disease and WE the PEOPLE contribute our courage, time and effort to upholding one another and save our small businesses. We the People, For the People. No more Fat Kats stealing a free ride from the hard working, tax paying, loving, caring and moral American Citizens.

    1. TIME TO QUESTION about use of 1st pandemic stimulus funds!

    1. Magister if you vote Trump you’re unAmerican. If you don’t understand that, it means you don’t understand our constitution, our laws, our history. Educate yourself.

  2. Not to mention the HUGE sums of taxpayer cash dished out to their cronies in the banks & being so cruelly indifferent when those same taxpayers are suffering,Despicable.

    1. I knew myself that money was took .A lot of the others took abunch of that money . Just think how much that money could be helping people now and help frighten that virus if they haven’t done that .It will all come out in tha end and i hope they get tham all.

    2. @orphan 200 they didn’t do the wright thing with that cares ack .if they used that and give us check every mouth .the point is they dont want to go in debt anymore

    3. @orphan 200 you shouldn’t,start printinting your own money again like you used to,the FEDERAL RESERVE has been getting away with printing your money & putting the government and Americans into debt since the 40’s,its ridiculous,JFK signed an executive order for the American government to start printing their own money again &within 10 days he was dead & next president cancelled it immediately,that’s the truth check it out….

  3. The big problem as I’ve always seen it is electing a corporate HACK who fills his administration with other corporate HACKS who try an run a country like a cold hearted corporation that is only concerned with filling their pockets and not the people. Let this be a lesson to never elect corporate HACKS anymore.

    1. @Jp Phil precisely why money needs to be taken out of politics. Democrats & Republicans need to remember they work for all of us not just the high dollar donors.

    2. @Jp Phil Yup, we need to throw out the establishment Dems after we throw out Trump. Trump is an immediate threat.

    3. @Jp Phil lol noodle brain I’m an independent, and I’m against any corporate politicians who get elected to on false pretenses of representing their constituents when they actually are their to get rich off of big donor money. I’m tired of the Bloods (Republicans) and Crips (Democrats) mentality in the House and the Senate.

    4. Need some laws about qualifications, conflicts of interest and much shorter times for “acting” or in president appointed positions. The cretins Trump appoints qualify by having a track record of financial support and willingness to subjugate themselves to him. That’s easy when they have no idea what they’re supposed to be doing like the now running the postal service into the ground so mail-in ballots will be delayed and not counted. Get your ballot now and return it now (or asap in your state)

    1. Isn’t it pathetic – it makes you wonder if there is something crooked going on in that White House.

    2. @The Truth ….People have been taking Hydroxy for lupus and Malaria for 60 years. If the side effects were significant do you think it would have been used that long on literally millions of people?1 Use your brain a little !!!!

    3. In Canada Prime Minister Trudeau quickly gave many people about $2000 a month, bought a factory in China to produce PPE, businesses in Canada are producing PPE, locked down businesses and got the virus under control. Now many businesses are re opening and the economy is improving. But thanks to Trump the US is stuck in the mud and the virus is raging out of control, Simply put Trump is incompetent and grossly negligent. He continues to cost people their jobs and lose everything they have worked for. In the meantime Trump goes golfing at his club and the government pays his club thousands and thousands of dollars to protect him there. Everyone needs to vote him out of office as soon as possible.

    4. @Don Townsend There are 4 peer reviewed research articles that clearly show Hydroxy DOESN’T work to treat Covid. Take it yourself if you think it will help, but the rest of us will let science decide what is and isn’t safe to put in our bodies.

    1. @Dalea Nolan If you can stop Trump from his propaganda, hate speeches and conspiracy theories, again America will be united. US unity is against Trump’s personal interests!

  4. McConnell doesn’t care about anything but himself. He’s got enough money to get by for a long time. He’s got to go

    1. Daniel Lawson he left Washington for Kentucky mid week last week when he should have been doing something about all of this.

    2. Daniel Lawson New Hampshire already evicting folks most of them of color. The State is only so-call helping up to $2,500 for How it’s that help when the average RENT is about $1,250 NO utilities. SYSTEMATIC RACISM once again. WHY SHOULD THEY CARE. EVICTION means BAD Credit WHICH MEAN YOU NEVER BE ABLE TO BUY PROPERTY. The truth is THEY DO NOT WANT MINORITIES TO OWN ANYTHING PERIOD THE business you worked for shut down PERMANENTLYFEDs SENT funds to help the people, but the people didn’t see what was it intended. So now EVERYTHING DOwN HILL from there. Who does it effect the most: BLACK and BROWN folks. Just like the CORONAVIRUS AFTER A FUNERAL HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU THINK IS LEFTOVER

    3. Yes he and his wife have many many offshore accounts wherein they can hide their money. You can check to see who has offshore accounts at this database: https://offshoreleaks.icij.org/ You will be greatly surprised to find out that so many politicians have offshore accounts. This includes Mike Pompeo, Steve Mnuchin, Betsy Devos, Wilbur Ross, William Barr, etc. In fact the entire Trump family have offshore accounts and this includes Barron Trump and Melania Trump. Wilbur Ross is business partner with a russian oligarch. They transport natural gas from Russia to Europe. Wilbur Ross by far has more offshore accounts than anybody. They are getting rich while the average man is going broke. Is the genius of Trump? We need to vote Trump out of office and restore some fairness in the system.

    4. Add in the griff chao rakes in. Suspect they’ve already booked their flights to China November 4th.

  5. When McConnell says _”We’ve paid enough”,_ he doesn’t mean _we the government,_ he means _we the rich people._

    1. Millioaire administration. What did you expect? All a bunch of socalist (grifters). American tax payers are suckers!

    2. Roguishly Handsome New Hampshire already evicting folks most of them of color. The State is only so-call helping up to $2,500 for How it’s that help when the average RENT is about $1,250 NO utilities. SYSTEMATIC RACISM once again. WHY SHOULD THEY CARE. EVICTION means BAD Credit WHICH MEAN YOU NEVER BE ABLE TO BUY PROPERTY.

    1. I really did not understand what Joe Biden meant, when he said he wants to *_”significantly change the country”,_* but now I understand that what he wants is a communist utopia. And I mean *_who would really disagree with that?_*
      WHY would anyone object to torture? slavery? hunger? and gulags?

    2. @John O Vote blue! Because
      *_Communism Will Work This Time We Promise!_*

  6. The elephant in the room; “If the people in Kentucky do not rid this country of the stench of Mitch McConnell (as well as 45) our home (the Un-United States) will cease to exist in any shape or form period”. The self proclaimed “Grim Reaper” should reap the whirl-wind of agony at his electoral defeat come November so that we can have some chance of savaging our country for us and our children.

    1. Thats what I keep thinking. yep make People Desperate. See what Happens. Those rumblings have been bubbling up for years. Billionairs have also been meeting for years pushing for a solution Because they realize things have been shacky between the 1 % and the 99% for a long time ( by the way most of them begging for Higher taxes on themselves) They have been expecting a Possible Revolt for some time. If things dont change, there will be no putting that Genie back in the Bottle.

    1. Mitch McConnell “people lost their job through no fault of their own.”
      “This isn’t a bailout like 2008.”
      So we will cut their unemployment even though it wasn’t their fault.

    2. Yeah and I suppose the politicians don’t remember the banks being bailed out by us either right. Pretty sad

    3. Totally, Please don’t forget who didn’t care coming November..get out and vote: McConnell should be the first to go.

    1. If President Obama had been in office the Virus would have been contained to China! The World would not be in lockdownscand Millions of humans around the aorld would not be sick and dying!
      The W.H.O and the
      CDC had The Miltary and Health experts ready to go if An Outbreak Occurred! President Obama asked the Miltary at the Pentagon where Our National Defense was the weakest and the Answer was a Bio- hazard from China! H1NI was contained, SARS1 was contained and the Ebola Virus was contained! Our Military was working with the W.H.O and the CDC to send Health Experts to the Outbreaks immedately on Notification!
      Trump defunded that part of the Military and pulled all of the Health experts out of China! The National Security team was the Liasion with the CDC! Trump Fired Everyone from that Taskforce in 2018!
      THIS VIRUS IS TRUMP COMPLETE FAULT, NOT CHINA’S! TRUMP HAS GITTED AND DEFUNDED EVERY DEPARTMENT AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES IN THE US IN 4 YEARS!
      TRUMP IS A MASS MURDERER! A TRAITOR TO THIS COUNTRY AND NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED ASAP, AND DRAGGED FROM THE WHITEHOUSE IN CUFFS!

    2. @Kelli Barnhouse I have to agree. But you are screaming at the end of your post and it is scaring me. I don’t know how this crap happened, but we will see it gone one way or another. Hang in there. That sh!thead only got 26% of eligible votes in 2016. It will be even less now. But everyone needs to vote this time. 48% stayed home or quiet last time. And here we are with the worst excuse for a leader/employee of the people ever. A known, proven, liar, cheat and thief, now a murderer as well.

    3. If Obama was president the pandemic team would not have been fired, the pandemic would never have gotten to this point.
