  1. Betrayed Reagan? It was him who sold out democracy to the corporations and set the US on the road to Fascism ( corporatism ).

    • @thewanderandhiscomp Fascism is violent/leftist.. Just like Communism. Hitler and Mussolini both started as Socialist.. Bernie Sanders camp. Mussolini was the publisher for the newspaper of the Italian Socialist Party and an officer in the Italian Socialist party. Hitler was spouting “wage inequality” before coming to power.. None of that is remotely right wing.

    • “Nazi” stands for National/Socialist

  2. GOP standing in the Capitol building PUSHING RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA….

      Bob Shepard Can you blame Putin for wanting to weaken NATO? If Russia placed permanent missiles pointing straight at us from close by, we’d be pushing back too, duh

      @Councilman Les Wynan AMERICA CAN HIT RUSSIA WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON FROM HERE!! WE’RE JUST NOT GONNA ALLOW PUTIN TO REBUILD THE U.S.S.R WHICH IS WHAT HIS MAIN GOAL IS, LIKE HIM TAKIN’ CRIMEA!!🇺🇸💯💪✌😂😂😂

    • wth?
      You have allowed yourself to be thoroughly faked by the media and corrupt Dems.
      Get some real info from Brandon Tatum, Tom Fitton, and Declassified.
      Epoch times has a nifty poster with the names and ACTIONS of all those perpetrating a coup against POTUS.
      He has done nothing wrong.

  3. Reagan dropped the tax for rich from somewhere near 80% down to 28%. He was a disgrace!

    • Closeoutracer I never said I had a minor in economics, I said amazon and apple don’t pay enough in taxes. You apparently want to be arrogant about the knowledge you think you have. I don’t live in Switzerland but I’m happy for their booming economy. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to play in the street as you directed. Unless you want to discuss why you think it’s ok for trillion dollar American companies to not pay taxes in the United States

    • Reagan also started taxing Social Security benefits to help pay for the tax cut for the rich.

    • @thewanderandhiscomp I Agree… That’s what I was saying, just using the other persons comment to point that out.

    • Pearl Mitch … You actually think that taking 80% of someones earnings is fair? How about you give 80% of yours to make up for the losses? Moron …

    • @Computer User … Arent YOU the liar today … 😃😄😂🤣😂😄😃 You have no idea about me. But I can tel you that I am EXTREMELY wealthy, and do whatever I want to do.. So, GFY. 😎

    Too many people too stupid to understand what Putin is doing.

    • Barry Sutton your master trump is done. I’m sure when he retires to trump tower in November you will camp outside and continue to worship him

    • dutchpy dutchpy Too many people too stupid to recognize propaganda even AFTER being gaslit for TWO entire years with “Russian collusion”. And you’re still here for more propaganda. How stupid are you? Read the IG’s report. The Steele dossier was garbage. Collusion was a HOAX!

    • Why don’t you explain it to us with evidence? Einstein

    • So you think Putin knows what he is doing?

    Are We Still Winning Bigly ?

  6. Oh, so now he’s a “former democrat”, and not the chosen leader of the republican party? Also, you forgot to mention the taxcut, adding some 500B to the deficit /year…

    • @Boyd Smith – So your idiotic article alleges that a Ukrainian paid Adam Schiff 💰 to get Ukraine weapons which Obama “refused” to send, but Trump did!?!?! Lord Jesus, what dumb@$$ conspiracy theory. Is there no pile of 💩 you guys won’t believe?????

      @Boyd Smith So we are the 10th wealtiest country in the world and our Corporate tax rate is below the world average now…

      Pasternak is not a “Ukrainian arms dealer.” He was born in Kazakhstan but is an American citizen. His company, Worldwide Aeros Corp, is based in the U.S. and manufactures airships.

      No amount of jobs is worth the damage trump’s doing to our country. TRAITORS shouldn’t be POTUS.

    • @April Jones-Foston AMEN!! Trumpty’s have their own theories. Delusional morons.

  7. The sad thing is… They really don’t care!

    You can call them out on everything truthful – and they [Republican Party] seriously does not care what you think. We’ll just see how that works out for this country in the distant future – I’ll bet they wished they cared then.

    • Boyd Smith The Democrats did not impeach Republican voters, they impeached Trump. Don’t let McConnell or Gordon have you believe you are hated because you voted GOP. That’s not true. McConnell and Gordon will go to any lengths to hoodwink you into such a fiction. They want your angry reflex Republican vote. They don’t want you to critically think about who deserves your vote. Don’t be fooled. Weigh up your pros and cons. Check the facts. Then decide on what you want and what is good for the country and go with that. I have voted for many different parties in my time. Nothing stays the same year after year. Oh, don’t believe politicians on face value, check it out.

    • “Truthful” … TDS is a serious mental health crisis.

    • i love your enthusiasm but you have the wrong person/persons.
      The Dems have faked so hard, they have made a “Fake Earthquake.’
      If you have ANY heart for truth and can spend 5 minutes investigating, you will find, DJT is guilty of nothing.
      But his accusers are guilty of…. a lot.

  8. PAYBACK TIME, BABY. Moscow Mitch held up the Supreme Court confirmation of Merrick Garland—House Speaker Pelosi keeps the Articles of Impeachment under wraps.  Now Pelosi needs to withhold from Comrade Trump-ski  his invitation for the upcoming State of the Union Address

    • Russia Russia Russia

    • pretty sure senate can go ahead with the trial with/without Pelosis’s delivery of the articles

  10. Joe: ” where do broken hearts go, when they find their way home ?”
    YOU etal allowed it.

  11. Thank you for raising Clinton’s efforts to balance the budget and remove the huge debt. I was working for FEMA during the Clinton Presidency. As a Federal manager, it meant we had to find a way to cut our budgets by 10% each year. The President’s Disaster Relief Funds were never cut though. As a worker, it was hard, but as a taxpayer, I truly appreciated the efforts. I am appalled that people believe Trump’s rhetoric that he caused the greatest economic prosperity then discounts the near and long-range complications of borrowing and random tariffs TWEETED without consultation with his own secretaries of Commerce, Treasury, FDIC etc. (Since when did tweets replace official correspondence in laying out actions and policies.) Americans reminisced about Pres Clinton’s Impeachment, they neglect to consider what a feat that was to pay all MidEast war bills and get us to a position of budget surpluses. Pres Clinton and VP Gore also went through a huge initiative to consolidate programs, find what we were doing that should have been handed off to the private sector, what was a combined effort and what was inherently government to do. President George W. Bush walked into a government operating in the black, but a few months later, 9/11 triggered unrestrained funding on forming DHS and re-entering the Mid-East on fallacious data and causing the budget to balloon again. Trump will leave our children and grandchildren with an awful bill to repay just so the optics made it seem he was a financial wizard. This is why Trump has gone all the way to the Supreme Court to stop orders to provide his tax returns for the past 8 years. If he was a wizard, he would see these documents as vindication. However, I suspect this has been the typical cycle of boom and bankruptcy of his own enterprises.

      @David Cisneros why dont you look at financial graphic from January 2009 to present time.

    • Professor Moriarty | December 19, 2019 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      Ya Kim you seem to fail to mention how much money the perv Clinton took from social security fund to balance budget.then had to repay it.which put us back in deficit…very easy to find info on.easy to leave out facts when convenient

    • @Sloane …what Kim is telling you is only a small part of a very bad picture. Obama/Clinton/Bush ran the US Economy into the Ground. They embraced Globalization and allowed China to build a Financial and industrial Economic Base. They gave borrowed money away to other Countries while the US Debt increased. President Trump’s aim is to make Washington work for the US People. He has already renegotiated Deals with Japan, China (ongoing), EU, Poland, Hungary, Mexico/Canada and so on. His next move is Health Care. Today he placed money into Mental Health and a New Housing Plan. Black and Latino Communities will benefit $8 Billion including free School access for children.

      Kim Vasconez I would love to share this. Brilliant! 👏👏👏👏

    • @Jamie Vetter as a brit i got confused 😕 when he said ‘we’ balanced the books because Joe is a republican. I always thought it was Clinton’s admin. Blair balanced the books to here between 97′ to 00′. But Conservatives always say they did it.

  12. Republicans have always betrayed the country, just more secretly/quietly before trump….

    • Did you know for Nixon it took 14 months and tons of info and 1st hand witnesses. And a counsel before the 14 months. Bill Clinton? Years. Now for Trump? 12 weeks

      Yeah.. REP and 3 dems voted NO! OMG this is so fair..YEAH! but haha.. who cares. NO ONE DOES! The left are crying now because.. seems its just another day for America.

      Yeah.. 12 weeks? And there is NO CRIME! Like one Congress man said.. not even a SPEEDING ticket.

      did you know they talked about Impeachment Apr 2016? did you know they tried to impeach 7 times? What for? Trump was mean to the Press.. Trump was mean to the athletes. I am not making that up haha

    • @BigD Some truth in your comment as well; however, the 3 instances of impeachment I’ve lived through each has their own unique set of circumstances. One thing they all have in common: they all broke the law. Nixon’s impeachment happened at the end of 6 years as president; the actions for what he was impeached began in 1972 with the investigation starting in early 1973. Clinton’s investigation started in 2995, culminating with a perjury charge for lying about a woman he hadn’t met until after the initiation of an investigation for an illegal eal estate scheme- no indictments from Whitewater. The current president’s issue has been in real time; he could have been considered for impeachment by the house for Mueller’s investigation but Pelosi chose a political calculus instead of her Constitutional duty. Ukraine started actually in March of this year with Zelinskyy’s election and from July on we have witnessed criminality in real time.

    • Republicans fought and freed slaves during the Civil War. More Republicans than Democrats voted for the 1964 Civil Rights act. Republicans constructed The Contract With America which gave us our last budget surplus.

    • Maybe o, in the past.And Dems were fairly benign but not now.
      Dems are lead by demons who care nothing for the USA.
      The Dems have faked so hard, they have made a “Fake Earthquake.’

    Hillbilly logic: “Trump may be a crook, but he’s OUR crook!”

    • @Frank Elizalde ”
      Bernard Scheidle 👉🏻 U are your own crook 😏if U support any socialist Dems candidate that will tax U dry to pay for all parasites’ whims . 👌” Do you even understand how facts work?

    • Trump supporters are brainwashed. Trump literally gave a $1.5 trillion tax cut to the billionaire establishment, The deficit is bigger than it has ever been. This is incredible. When people say he is the president for the top 1%. THEY AREN’T LYING! NO JOKE Bernie 2020 <3 TAX THE RICH

    THE PUSSYGRABBER GOT CAUGHT 😛
    Lock them all up America

    • Boyd Smith – nah, it’s crazy how that info got turned around. This whole situation is a big mess now…

    • Raven R – haha, the nazis and the communists were total opposites. They truly hated each other.

    • BigD – well, he didn’t get caught exactly. He kind of gave us the transcript, where he’s asking for a favor.
      That’s kind of the illegal part.

    • Steph J – ok, I’ll check it out…
      But really, are we suuure that Dems are these horrible corrupt people?

    • Fake impeachment. Democrats made complete idiots of themselves. Nancy won’t pass it to the senate because they can’t make their own rules like they did in the house. Dems keep mentioning the constitution when the rest of the time they hate it.

  15. “Welcome to the club, Mr. Trump. You can check out anytime you want. But you can never leave.”  
    — President Andrew Johnson

  16. 2019 will be the year Russian history books will say the US democracy failed its people…and they will be right.

    The GOP behavior is Shameful. Unimaginable. Unforgivable.

    I will not forget when it comes time to cast my vote, in perhaps the last fair democratic election in this country, in 2020. We have teetered on the edge of the cliff and now, with Moscow Mitch’s decision, we have plummeted into the void and this country will never be the same.

    Revolution is brewing.

    • Democrats running communist/socialist.. Warren/Sanders while calling others “russians” … what a pathetic group of idiots.

    • Except the US is not a democracy. It’s a constitutional republic. If people understood our form of government, its design & why it was designed that way they wouldn’t swallow the drivel & deceit that the news pundits, talk shows, & late night “entertainment” shows all spew out. So-called news is nothing but opinion now, & that alone should be frightening & disgusting to everyone on every side of every issue.

  17. It was Clinton’s budget – and *HIS* relentless efforts to bring forward a balanced budget.

    The Irony: *Republicans HATED Clinton, but he worked more intelligently with their ideas than either Republican President has since!*

  18. Reagan fought to balance the budget? He`s the one that started us on the road to bankruptsy.

    • alton gifford
      actually it was FDR and the new deal. Also at anytime the voters could have stopped the financial
      direction this country is heading. So before you blame the politicians I suggest you look at who votes for them

    • No surprise there. Joe is still a Republican at the end of the day. He agrees with their policies. He just doesn’t like Trump.

    • Balanced budget amendment was part of Contract of America constructed by Newt Gingrich. Bankruptcy comes from high expenses and low income. Dems always push for higher expenses, more programs, bigger bureaucracy.

  19. It’s all stuff that everyone knows, but it’s still rather satisfying to watch Joe rant about GOP hypocrisy

  20. The biggest joke is when I hear someone in the current GOP refer to themselves as the Conservative party !
