  1. Well, I hope you make laws to protect black people and Mexicans from the Police.

  2. Flipping that senate is just too important, evicting just Trump is not enough.

      Hear 👂 hear !!!! 🥳🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸. 👎🇷🇺 trump 🤮. & Moscow mitch 🐢,,, MUST GO !

    • @Kev McCarthy let me start with i don’t want anyone to be homeless unless they want to be, regardless of their party affiliation. Your a Human being , we are humans not Animals !
      Free market Capitalism Or Cronyism ? Capitalism has nothing to do with rezoning , labeling middle class areas as urban blight, tearing down houses that nothing is wrong with that don’t sell to keep prices high, closing local corner stores in Neighborhoods due tonew rezoning, creating house bubbles so that the bank gets to foreclose to take over regions and create a Landlord base society! All to control the prices of all goods and services like England did to India to conqueror India during Gandhi’s time . That is what the Great Mahatma Gandhi fought against !

      Next none of us alive have ever experienced Capitalism in our life time , we only have banks that charge interest rates. As Appose to the choice between interest rates and flat rate banking. We had both types of banking in the US in the 1800s before it was taken over by British banking we now have. Banking in all Muslim countries before the last decade or so, was all flat rate .
      Ex: 20% interest on a 200,000 home is 240,000 flat rate .
      Banks that charges interest are the only ones legal in the US.
      here 200,000 at 4.5 over 30 years comes to something like 540,000 total that’s a 240,000 profit to the bank ! Your mortgage X 12 X 30 years etc ..
      That’s not capitalism !

    • @Milton Monnin

      Capitalism (noun): “an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.”

      So, from what you just said, we’ve never lived somewhere where people own their own stuff and businesses sell stuff? America, according to you, has a system where the state owns everything and there are no private businesses. For some reason you think that usury is the same as capitalism, which is odd. It’s the only reason to bring up Islam. Not charging interest doesn’t stop one being Capitalist.

      OK, dude, you disagree with the dictionary, the economics text on my bedside table and the rest of the English speaking world. It’s obvious that you think Capitalism is something completely different to the definition by Adam Smith. Well done for your odd definition and the weird calculation of mortgage interest … not sure how you thought that helped your point

    • @denis charette

      Hey dude, the Repugnican party had complete power between 2016 & 2018. During that time they could have fixed all of America’s problems. Which they did … NOT!

      Let’s review … between 2008 & 2016 the Democrats saved the environment, they provided healthcare for all and they looked to rebalance the inequality in the system. The GOP spent 2016-2020 trying to victimise their political enemies and immigrants. They spent it poisoning rivers and evicting native Americans. They spent it by bribing Trump with money in his businesses … And now he’s going senile/insane in public, rather than doing the moral thing and looking after him they are throwing him to the wolves. Sick. They should be a lot kinder if they truly are “Christian”.

      Perhaps if they weren’t so full of hatred, we might have some respect for the GOP. Sadly, the days of Reagan Republicans is long gone. The Repugnican Party is now filled with racists, bigots and white power advocates.

      So, I respect many Republicans … the ones that walked away from 45s bigotry and bile. The ones that stayed can eat my shorts.

    • @Kev McCarthy When a private person (s) through lobbyist pays the government to change the law or a realtor is elected to office and changes the laws , regulation, zoning tax codes that’s not Capitalism and the dictionary agrees with me on that. Cronyism is not Capitalism .
      Your Elected politician changed the laws ..not private persons it would be quite impossible in America for a Private person to change any of that in America

  3. The Republicans and Charlie Kirk and their buddies must pay a financial and political price… The supreme Court is now an illegitimate joke

    • @B E You people just don’t understand what a democratic republic is. No one wants your Right Wing agendas passed so you think by going around Congress’ back you can force your BS beliefs on the rest of us. These “judges” will impeach really well. So much perjury-so little time. The sound of indictments dropping will be music to many Americans ears-and around the world.

    • Michelle McGuire | October 15, 2020 at 12:20 PM | Reply

      @Brady N wait until after election …that would b legit …otherwise you’re gonna be upset when Dems get control there’s gonna be 2 More liberal judges ..

    • @Michelle McGuire How would that be more legit? It’s Trump’s Constitutional obligation to fill that Supreme Court seat.

    • @Brady N You know that’s complete crap. What hypocrites. The name “Merritt Garland” mean anything to you???? Enjoy it while you can. Payback is a medevac.

    • ​@Kay Clark It’s all about politics… if the roles were reversed the democrats would do the exact same thing. But to complain that Republicans are about to confirm a SC Justice with no democratic support is VERY hypocritical coming from the people who impeached a President with no Republican support.


  5. Democrats always have to repair what the republicans break.Republicans are the problem.

    • Rebecca Valicoff | October 15, 2020 at 2:28 PM | Reply

      @Ken no republicans voted for him . Not democrats

    • @Rebecca Valicoff Well I just did!…And Trump has gotten much more of a following this time !

    • Jim McLoughlin | October 15, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

      @Ken So, give us your inciteful analysis to support that statement along with your thoughts on the lies Trump used to get elected.

    • @Jim McLoughlin The results speak for themselves..Media focus on the negatives doesn’t fool anyone, we’ve seen the economy, the many accomplishments…We don’t care if Trump insults people, he did the job we elected him for, and we elected him because we got sick of the same “do nothing, empty promises” that the democrats fed us for decades, ready for four more years…Trump 2020!

    • TRUE

  6. I voted early in Texas today for Biden/Harris

  7. I really worry about the medical care being overturned not for my self as much for my Son and grandchildren with pre exciting conditions

  8. Democracies depend on norms — unwritten rules about how leaders and citizens should behave. One norm is forbearance — the idea that political power should be used with restraint rather than weaponized and taken to its lawful limits. Such norms have little standing in today’s Republican Party.

    There was, for example, no constitutional barrier to prevent Wisconsin’s outgoing Republican governor, Scott Walker, in cohoots with the state’s Repub Legislature, to strip the governor’s office of power before the incoming Dem governor could take office in 2019. But it violated the longstanding norm of American politics that the outgoing party accept the change in power that comes with losing an election.

    North Carolina’s Republican Legislature pulled the same stunt in 2016, when the state’s voters elected a Democratic governor. Republican state legislatures, have also pushed gerrymandering beyond ethical limits. In Wisconsin’s 2018 election, Republican candidates received only 45 percent of the popular vote but won 63 percent of the state Assembly’s seats. In a 2019 5-to-4 Supreme Court ruling, the 5 Republican appointees on the court held that Wisconsin’s rigged system did not violate voters’ constitutional rights.

    The 1965 Voting Rights Act was designed to end the voter suppression that had long plagued America’s elections. It worked as intended, until Republicans began devising schemes to keep minorities from voting. In 2017, North Dakota Republicans enacted a law that requires voters to have written proof of a residential address before they are eligible to vote. The law targets Native Americans who live on rural tribal lands, which don’t have street names and numbers on all of their roads. Here, too, the Supreme Court’s Republican appointees in a 5-to-4 decision allowed the policy to stand.

    The idea of disenfranchising minority voters was hatched by the Republican-controlled legislatures of Indiana and Georgia. Enacted in 2006, Indiana’s law required residents to have a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, in order to register to vote. Republican legislators knew who they were targeting. Minorities, young adults, and people of low income — all of whom tend to vote Democratic.

    Since then, roughly 30 Republican-controlled states have enacted voter-ID laws. Some were forced to reenact their law after a court struck down the first attempt.

    Although Republicans say that voter IDs are intended to prevent voter fraud, there is no evidence for the claim, and their real purpose is clear. As longtime Republican political consultant Carter Wrenn said: “Of course it’s political. Why else would you do it?” Republican lawmakers in Florida and Pennsylvania slipped up and publicly said that their aim was to suppress the Democratic vote.

    But Republicans are playing with fire, because voter suppression lengthens the memory of those suppressed.

    • Worth reading!

    • As i recall, it was the democrats and Harry Reid who changed the rules in the Senate for judiciary nominees from 60 votes to a 50 vote majority when they had power. They were warned that this would come back to bite them…now Trump gets 3 SCOTUS picks. Reap what you’ve sewn.

    • You’re right @DavidJ. The Republicans knew that most minorities didn’t have or couldn’t get a driver’s license or a passport. Also, low income minorities wouldn’t have the need for a passport anyways and they knew it.

    • @Annie State IDs which are free to the indigent are not available or accepted where? Even the UN was saying it was crazy. If there are technicalities to getting that then fine, iron those out. But do it! The Democrats aren’t caring as long as they are united, as against an obvious liberalism spoiler like Trump, but if they split too, as in a Hillary vs. Sanders situation, they will start to care about loosey goosey.

      Everyone is going mad and thinking one mere millisecond into the future.

    • Bravo David J! You wrote that like a poet, mad respect.

  9. They’re trying to install minority rule, just like apartheid

  10. Trump is treating America like his next Taj Mahal casino.

    • Bankrupt. America ! Remember. Anything. trump touches Dies .

    • Read the Vanity Fair article about how Donny and his friends are making money playing stock market futures from his Tweets and WH commits.

    • Like the 2.4 billion dollar casino next to Taj Mahal that went bankrupt, too? You people are clueless as to why his casinos shut down.

    • he’s made a lot of money using the power of the office of the president

      @Mr. WhiteThey just found more corruption, Trump has so much disrespect for America, he thought he could get away with all his scams, agan and again, but he is finally getting cornered.

    All those workers who are thinking of voting for Trump are like Turkey’s voting Christmas

    • @Kalvin Celcius all that first world education and this is what you show for it?

    • @jabberwolf There’s no rallies for anyone on earth, silly trumpladite, except for the Superspreader in Chief–there is this little viral pandemic going around and you have to be out of your mind to be in a crowd—except if your a Trumpladite disciple

    • @jabberwolf pack it up, bot..your alternate reality will soon be no more…Putin awaits your dismal report!

    • @Augie Rockero Thats why Sweden and multiple countries are opened up.. because of that Pandemic right? Biden can’t even get a small parking lot full of cars. 😅 😂 🤣

    • @jabberwolf plane to Russia still waiting on you…sticking around for Biden’s inauguration? In the words of your Orange God Used Car Salesman Racist in Chief—-it’s going to be “like nothing you’ve ever seen!”

      PROUDLY voted for TRUMP 💕💕

    • @Konservative Kirby RUSSIAN trolls are not allowed to vote. Go away-this isn’t 2016.

    • Remember. Polls don’t count !!! Votes do . 👍🙂 Vote Agolf Twitler And Republicans out . Save America and Democracy 🙏🇨🇦❤️🇺🇸

    • @Konservative Kirby You. must really enjoy being screwed . Dictator trump is totally destroying America , ignorant racist still support him . 👎🏿

    • @Kay Clark Thanks fascist. Will you send the mob with raised fists around? I can’t wait until they turn on you too. The leaders of thefrench revolution were all executed.

  14. It should be timethat LIFE TIME jobs are removed. NO ONE should be guranteed a life time job.

  15. It is so disingenuous for the nominee to say she thinks politicians, not judges, should be the ones to weigh in on contentious issues of the day—she knows that she and her majority on the court will have the last say on any law passed by a Democrat controlled House senate and president: at this time next year conservatives will be suing over every last thing and working every case up there to the highest court. And I doubt Biden will get to pick any SCOTUS seats even if he gets 8 years, based on the ages of the justices. 😭. Where did my country go?

    It’s more about the Senate they are the ones who can override a moron

    • Exactly. The Senate is the problem. The Senate is corrupt and the system is broken.

      The vast majority of the population is under represented in the Senate. The millions of citizens in DC and Puerto Rico don’t have representation, but a few thousand Cowboys in Wyoming and Montana have two Senators each making decisions for everybody else.

  17. Boycott NBC having Trump hovering his town Hall competing with Biden why is NBC giving Trump airtime to spew propaganda Russian propaganda boycott NBC

    The judges should have limited terms, not lifetime appointments.

    • @Mark Flatt The hundreds of millions of dollars spent in the US campaigning is just stupid. There should be a reasonable spending limit put on each politician. NO other country spends the money the US spends on elections.

    • @Mark Flatt They should be selected by the votes of the people. Not selected by a few in power. If she wants to run on abolishing the ACA as compared to another justice nominee who favors that ACA..let the people decide. Our democracy is run by the majority of the people who elect officials to represent them in Congress, and the President…it’s about time that if there are 3 equal branches of government…we should be able to select those as well.

    • applied retroactively.

    • We need to call a Convention of the States…its well overdue…

    • We need to get rid of our systems of segregation. If we don’t we will never mature as a society.

  19. And the first thing is, bring in Glenn Kirschner as AG to investigate Bill Barr, Pompeo, Nunes and Rudy then indict.

    • ABSOLUTELY!!!!!! Glenn is incredible, and fully deserves the role of AG under Biden!

    • you mean indict Killery, Obummer, Comey, Biden, witch Pelosi, and directer of CIA for a false accusations against Trump when they were the ones really colluding with Russia? Wasting 3 years of tax payers money for a fake impeachment or did you already forget about that? Oh maybe your awesome news outlets MSNBC and CNN never reported it!!! SMH

  20. Yes, win the Presidency, and the Senate, keep hold of the majority in Congress…. and then pack the courts. 😁👍
