    1. “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”
      ― The Donald @ Playboy, March 1990

    1. @thisbarb Actually it is 9 out of 10 dentists that get a kick back from CNN to keep CNN on in their waiting room. The rest of the world is sane.

    2. I would never want to hear another true left-wing democratic argument about President #46 is not a neo-liberalism. Joe Biden still has no intention of telling the network media why Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell will not immediately released the $1,200 American stimulus checks?

      And why isn’t Neera Tanden is not screaming out to release the Americans stimulus checks?

      Notice Msnbc broadcast is not mentioning anything about the American stimulus relief checks none. These are some Shameful people.

  1. By now it is evident to everyone that it is Civic Duty to see Donald tRump & his family out of office & thoroughly investigated for Criminal Corruption.

    1. @Jason McIntosh : You see, son, it doesn’t work like that. We know we’re being, “fed a lie,” by trump’s haters, when his trolls waste 4 years of their lives, trolling news channels they HATE, spewing their HATE at people they HATE, all day every day. Kind of a giveaway, kiddo

    2. @Jay Ess thankfully, Trump is also being investigated at the state level, too. Which he can’t pardon himself of.

    3. @Jason McIntosh you cannot reason with people who have joined a cult, they refuse to face truth or facts or science because their leader is the only truth they choose to believe, you obviously have joined the Trump cult.

  2. COVID-19 is running rampant throughout our country, thousands of Americans are dying everyday and still have leadership from the federal level and we have state leaders who have seemed to follow the Trump administration’s position of denial.

    1. “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”

    2. @subtlesigns Don’t worry, most Americans aren’t as ignorant as Tony’s place…unfortunately, about 40% of us are…

  3. What’s mind boggling is that it looks like Trump doesn’t care about these deaths at all. I’m not even an American and I’m enraged. Because every time that I tune in to his Twitter account to check what steps is he taking to reduce the cases and deaths I find his account filled with election fraud claims and not a single tweet about the unprecedented health situation in America

    1. Ditto
      I was Trump supporter but I started hating him after how he handled covid19 crisis
      Contrast this with our prime minister who swept a major election amidst covid19 because he never took it lightly

    2. Trump is a sociopath or psychopath.
      He is *incapable* of empathy and cannot care about others.
      He only cares about himself. He *can* only care about himself.
      That’s the core of his illness and why he is such a dangerous man.

  4. Thank you to Rachel for your integrity in reporting. And for your courage to state the truth, however blunt.

    1. We’ll keep electing more justice democrats who don’t accept corporate donations, and it will improve the democratic side of the aisle, I’m hoping the Lincoln project, and Republican voters against Trump will do something similar, and start grassroots electing ethical people willing to speak out on policies.

    2. @Carrie Ullrich that’s the best bet if the Lincoln project you can have them conservative group…. but you had them argue on policy ideas and how much and all of it should be based on how much you’re going to help the American people Justice Democrats… if you got good face Republicans from the Lincoln project who recognized the monster they created starting with a tea party what time is the actual in the John Birch Society… never forget Frank Luntz because he’s trying to rehabilitate himself he’s going around Vice trying to act like he’s one of the good guys and he’s not Frank Luntz is the worst of the worst…. after their major loss in 2008 Frankie wants decided it was a good idea to allow the team Party in after our first African American president… at first it was just about AstroTurf but then it quickly turned into the weird the weird militia types like the Alex Jones The Rand Paul’s Ron Falls neo-confederates…. and their secret was they were against the drug war which allowed them to temporarily be fooled I mean to fool the left but what the last didn’t realize was the only thing they had against the drug war was that it was Federal…. Ron Paul and Rand Paul the base of support if you read his old newsletters has always been from The Sovereign citizen militia movement….. that’s why when Kentucky there was a big controversy about him talking to a paper about how he thought the Civil Rights thing was wrong because it forced businesses to do something they didn’t want to do…

    3. Also Tulsi gabbard is the biggest fraud in the entire world anybody who supported that woman was taken in by a grift and I question their intelligence…… Tulsi gabbard Bots still stuck by her even after ridiculous people like Tucker Carlson Sean Hannity Alex Jones Dave Rubin called her and the only good Democrat and let’s not forget her cowardly impeachment vote… because less remember now that was the first time she ever claimed about something being to partisan…. like it’s as if she didn’t remember 8 years of Obama with Mitch McConnell and all the Republicans wanting him to fail and saying no whatever he’d put forward… when Benjamin Netanyahu came to the Republican Congress to whine and complain because every country in the world denounces the settlements it’s an apartheid state Israel

    4. What they are doing to the Palestinian people is inexcusable they’re running sewage into their properties and they’re destroying olive trees that take generations to grow and there’s Palestinian Christians as well…., every year the US would refuse to Xanax the settlements and say old support for Israel no matter what and around 2014 or 15 finally America grew a backbone and they didn’t condemn the settlement they just abstained from the vote

    5. Benjamin Netanyahu a total fascist came to speak to the Republican Congress and whine… there was one Democrat who attended that ridiculous display that was Tulsi gabbard…. she also recently engaged in suggesting that collecting votes from nursing homes sick people l they couldn’t make it to the polls but they were all valid votes….. James O’Keefe was trying to call into question that practice which has always been the case and many states because a lot of people can’t make it to the polls this is wild James O’Keefe was in Minnesota trying to smear congresswoman ilhan Omar… Tulsi gabbard took that information from James O’Keefe who no one respects everyone always knows is lying anyone in politics he’s just a smear Merchant he’s never put it out anything that was true just edited videos that are debunked within days…. sotol see teams up with the Republican based on James okay but she was exposed so she backed off and apologize for teaming up with project Veritas because they’re so discredited but she did still with the help of are you Republican try to suggest that there was a voter fraud when but there’s no widespread voter fraud in the United States it it just has never been… so just know that anytime I Republican try to do a solution to voter fraud there’s no evidence that it’s ever existed and what they’re doing is putting up a wall to make it harder for people to vote for no reason except they want to disenfranchise people of color.. Tulsi gabbard knows this and she went right along with it….. the only reason she is resigning her seat is because she was so unpopular that she was going to get primaried and crushed from the left…. and just like the coward liar she was with impeachment she was a coward and didn’t want to have to answer to the people of Hawaii who were about to reject her so she decided that would be our last time in Congress and she ran for president never got above 2% of the vote and most of them were right Wingers trying to convince her to run third party…. Tulsi gabbard is the Dave Rubin of Democrats

    1. “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”

    2. Lets look at some numbers. As of October 2020 the CDC stated that of all the deaths blamed on covid 19 only 6% were from covid, the rest were underlying conditions and they had contracted covid. As of today there are approximately 270,000 deaths. There are approximately 330 million people in the U.S.. So if we take the 270k deaths÷ by 6% that the CDC says are actual covid deaths that equals 16,200. Take the actual deaths from covid 16,200 ÷ by 330 million, the US population, and you come up with 0.000049% from dying of covid only. So 253,800 people that are said to have died from covid actually had under lying conditions.
      September 2020: CDC shows covid 19 has high survival rate.
      0 – 19 = 99.997% survival rate
      20 – 49 = 99.98%
      50 – 69 = 99.50%
      70 – up = 94.6%
      Everyone keeps talking about data etc, these figures are from the CDC. I do realize that things change constantly, but it can’t be that much in a couple of months. My sister is a nurse in a well known hospital. In our discussions she said that because of the money her hospital receives from the government per covid case, they were directed to list covid as being the cause of death or a contributing factor. She related about a male dying from injuries in a car wreck, and one of the medical staff listed covid as a contributing factor.

      Basically, covid is used to control through fear. The second driving factor is money, good ole greed. Everyone always falls back on the almighty disease God, Tony Fauci. Does anyone think he says the things that he does out of some moral driven code? No, he doesn’t. So what is his reason, considering he has been wrong on so many occasions? Simple: power,notoriety, and you can bet money. He isn’t doing anything for free. Has anyone ever heard of Dr. Fauci before covid 19? Probably not. Yet now he is the most powerful man in the country and wasn’t elected. But in the end he pushes fear. No one seems to remember when be was on camera at a Washington Nationals baseball game a few months back. He was shown sitting shoulder to shoulder with people and not wearing a mask. Why? Because just like politicians that are constantly caught defying their own mandates, they have a narrative to push. Why push a narrative of fear? Simple, control. Fear is an emotion, if I can control your emotions, then I can control you. Please look at everything before biting into the apple. Again, ask yourself, how many times have they been wrong about everything?
      Never forget that stats and data will be manipulated to prove or disprove a point. In this case its to prove that the people will bow down to a narrative driven by fear. The people driving the fear narrative think that as everyday working class people, we are too stupid to think for ourselves, that we will not look at the numbers and do the math. By not doing the math, they control through fear.

      We have all seen the Nancy Pelosi hair salon video. Don’t forget she never took responsibility for her actions, she claimed it was a set up. We have seen the speech by Lori Lightfoot saying she takes pride in her personal hygiene and is on TV so she defied her own mandate to get a haircut. Gavin Newsome in California out with a large group of people having dinner. While telling you not to visit family for Thanksgiving. Andrew Cuomo was going to have Thanksgiving with his family and 89 year old mother, until he was ratted out. I bet he did anyways. Why are our leaders telling us to do what they wont do? Is it because they know something we the people don’t? Is it because their narrative is working? Is it all of the above?

      In the end its all about control. They want us to bow down and submit without question. You know the ” Trust me, I’m from the government and I’m here to help”. Again look at the big picture before biting into the apple. Whats worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm.

    3. That underlying conditions myth was before we had detailed information about covid itself, due to the damage it causes in lung tissue in the specific layer your body gets more oxygen from… It causes oxygen deprivation, which is the death of random cells that don’t get oxygen… Also covid thickens blood, one of the first symptoms in many younger people is a stroke.

      Strokes can happen anywhere in the brain, and cutting off bloodclot from any portion of your brain will cause damage to whatever structures that part of the brain does maintenance upon.

      The actual death rate is approximately one in thirty five from reported cases and reported deaths.

      With the Trump Administration deliberately shutting down the usual reporting sources, we don’t know if our numbers are entirely accurate, which was done on purpose.

      If your body is deprived of enough oxygen that your brain dies or your heart stops, you could list that as a heart or brain problem, but if why you had the heart or brain problem is due to covid, its still a covid related death.

      The rate in America is actually worse than one in thirty five on deaths, with four percent of the world population were currently dying five times as much as citizens in other countries.

      We don’t have accurate numbers of who will have long-term health problems that are permanent or that they may recover from.

      They will be related to every failure of every system in the body, because that’s what oxygen deprivation does, kills the cells unlucky in oxygen distribution.

  5. At the rate of new covid-19 cases it’s up to two hundred thousand new covid-19 cases every 24 hours a day and what is the president who is still responsible for the lives of Americans doing???? Nothing nothing at all wich makes Donald j trump guilty of mass murder.

    1. golfing? looking for ways to steal the election? whatever it is, certainly not looking after the American people.

    2. That doesn’t remove individual government officials from negligence charges. Whether they can prove enough for conviction, I don’t know, but as a rule, everyone is responsible for their own actions which result in the death of another human being, if their negligence caused such a death, and considering the large number of Trump supporters who got sick with their waivers, a class action lawsuit might be possible for negligence on a grand scale.

      Like how drug companies are sued for the negligence caused by their medications.

      I’m sure well find out for certain in 2021 as lawsuits or criminal charges are filed.

    3. @Paul Wilson Do you feel the government should provide police, firemen, military, border patrols, stoplights, etc?

  6. If churches and synagogues can deny science then let hospitals deny care to science deniers. Let COVID make America great again.

  7. You loved thanksgiving…you will enjoy Christmas and New Year’s Eve…and wait for Inauguration Day. Just because some politicians did not dare to say the truth and do their leadership job.

  8. What a sad state we’re in when health experts who “go rogue” means they are telling the truth and trying to save lives during a deadly pandemic. Thank goodness we finally Made America Great Again and voted the Commander in Bleach out of office.

    1. I would never want to hear another true left-wing democratic argument about President #46 is not a neo-liberalism. Joe Biden still has no intention of telling the network media why Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell will not immediately released the $1,200 American stimulus checks?

      Notice Msnbc broadcast is not mentioning anything about the American stimulus relief checks none. These are some Shameful people.

    1. Yes. Hope you’ll say exactly this to your own US Reps and Senators. We can leave voice mails (the fastest, most dependable way) to convey our stance on any and all critical concerns, and ask our friends and families to do the same. The Voice of the People is powerful! US Congress main switchboard 202-204-3121.
