    Can we get a list of bills he have killed and the ones he did not.

    • betsy floyde | June 11, 2020 at 3:46 PM | Reply

      Yeah print he list of legislature sitting on his desk!

    • we must recognize that the trouble and brutality is ALWAYS in Democrat run cities 💡 think about Minneapolis, LA, Seattle, NY >>>> all Do Nothing Democrat MAYORS = research it if U don’t believe me

    • Why does Not anyone point out that ALL these police choke holds happened in Democrat run places with , wait for it , … DEMOCRAT MAYORS ! 💡

    • Sheryl Howard | June 12, 2020 at 2:35 AM | Reply

      I know it’s not the list that is being asked for but, before the election , go to and find out who OWNS your senators. I found it quite interesting! (If you don’t know who a corporation or group is you may have to do a little digging on Google they hide their backers).

    • @ღSwnsasyღ _ Thanks for that site link.

    This corrupt incompetent government who is disenfranchising voters needs to be removed by the people!

    The country will burn in November. Trump will lose and never leave. The rebirth of America without republicans will be a painful time. The police and military will blanket the country with violence. Many will be killed. The suffering will be relentless.
    Stock market rolling along with millions suffering right now. No jobs. Lies about the jobs report. Republicans are the greatest threat to life on the planet.

      @greg j You have got a cheek clown

    • @ThKa 1 and only Looney LOECSTA Don’t you have some more black owned businesses to burn down or has the job been done already? Gotta love that Cloven Piven Marxism huh? Burn down black people’s dreams and keep them on the Marxist Plantation. They work hard and you don’t like it do you?

    • @ThKa 1 and only Looney LOECSTA In the end you’ll destroy yourself and you know it.

  4. Moscow Chokehold Mitch is another pitiful Republican that’s finished just like Bunker Boy.

    • Scotch Morrison COVID-19 is now the #3 cause of death in the US behind only cancer and heart disease. It has surpassed all accidental deaths and murders which are about 100,000 per year. Sounds like a pretty successful pandemic … from the virus’s point of view. It’s a catastrophic failure of Donald Dimwit’s government and the entire Cuntservative governing philosophy

    • Scotch Morrison did you hear Donald is starting to do rallies again and is requiring attendees to sign a waiver that they won’t sue when they catch COVID-19, so who is paying Donald to do that? Is it Betsy Davos? She hired all those actors to pretend to protest against public health safety in Wisconsin

    • @Roger Andersson 😂🙄 Yeeaaaahhhhhhhhhh…. You should finish the bottle, what have you got to lose snowflake. 🤦‍♂️

    • @Scotch Morrison how’s that explanation for the COVID-19 waiver that Trump is forcing attendees at his upcoming rallies to sign? Why is Donald pushing this hoax and telling people it’s a real threat that could cause enough damage to sue him? Why is Donald pushing this fake news story?

      Psycho Joe played a big role in the 2001 death of his former intern. She just happened to collapse in the office
      , just happened to crack her skull open on the one specific part of the office that could injure her, was diagnosed in the autopsy by Psycho Joe’s personal friend who just happens to have a history of fraud. Remember when they told the country that the Jussie Smollett case was most definitely legitimate and racially motivated? Ohhh yeah, that panned out 😂

      @Helen Smith Trump will force you to commit suicide….sad….

    • Yes, it is sad but that’s one thing I cannot blame agent orange for.
      At least I don’t have to live under the chaos he sows and escalates each day.
      I had actually been planning to visit America, until it decided it didn’t need a leader in the white house.  My plans may happen someday when a President takes up residence in the White House again.  That’s assuming America doesn’t rip itself apart in November by choosing to continue with this escalating chaos.

  7. GOP doesn’t care about the American people and they will make it the most difficult they can to vote in November..

  8. James Hutchins | June 11, 2020 at 8:18 AM | Reply

    Typical GOP tactic when they don’t want to take any type of action…initiate a study…then it is forgotten.

    • And what is your type of action? Burning and destroying black owned businesses?

    • @greg j Don’t ask stupid questions, legislative solutions are the civilized way of solving this abuse of power.
      Leave the looting to those right winger “proud bois.” 😷😷🤨

    • @Sperup AD Uh huh? Was the penguin there too? How about the catwoman? Spare me because nobody is falling for it. Everybody knows who was doing the burning and looting.

    • @greg j And no, tRudy Giuliani wasn’t there, and Kellyann is a bad catwoman impersonaltor.
      Get a clue. 😁😁😁😁

    • Markus Stewart | June 11, 2020 at 12:43 PM | Reply

      @greg j You’re right zippy we do know who was doing the burning and looting, it was your friends from “the Triple K Club” and other out of state white groups, the cops have a few of your friends in jail. And the only one who believes otherwise is just another member of the Trump Klan

  9. if they will not even commit to banning choke holds, they will resist true changes in cop culture. republican lawmakers are scum.

    • @howdareyou41 i remember that vaguely. yeah, there has been a lack of follow through because 25%- 50+% of americans are racists or at least mildly racists and think black people are all criminals. the lawmakers pander to their constituents and their investors.

    • knee on the back of the neck is not a choke hold…. banning choke holds will not stop what happened to Floyd… that was just a man who was trying to torture Floyd.. had nothing to do with police tactics.

    • Gary Hoskins | June 11, 2020 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      You would call them scum even if they did so whats it matter.

    • @Gary Hoskins it doesn’t… they will be voted out in the next twenty years are so…. the younger generation has entirely different views on race, lgbt.. etc etc etc… that’s why all the vote suppression… republicans understand their time is limited.

    • Gary Hoskins I think McCain was a great leader. So, not is not because they are Republicans, it’s because they are scum.

  10. Moscow mitch wants to chokehold people vote out all nazi Republicans in November

    • @Linda Scott Spare me the juvenile Sociology lesson taught by some self hating Marxist Prof at Utopian U. You’re just anti-white and you know it. Fool!

    • @Linda Scott Maybe one day inner city blacks will finally see how the Cultural Marxists have made a comfortable living off exploiting their emotions for Political gain.

    • Harold Moore | June 12, 2020 at 11:18 AM | Reply

      greg j lmao. We would never vote republican or Trump. Small minded sycophant.

    • @greg j “cultural Marxists “? Lol. Another victim of propaganda. Trump’s approval with African Americans is in the single digits. Dems haven’t done enough, i agree, but Rethuglicans have actively hurt people of color, as they are well aware. One of Trump’s first actions was to reverse Obama’s policies regarding for profit prisons, which make inordinate profits off of people of color, along with re-militarizing police forces. Now he is holding a rally in the city which was the site of the worst massacre of a Black community in our history, on June teenth, when the Black community celebrates the end of slavery. Ignorance or dog whistle for his White Supremacist base? You tell me since you are one yourself.

    • @greg j LMFAO!!! First you accuse me of being anti-white, which shows you are just another cowardly White Supremacist whose main motivation is FEAR that you will lose your precious privilege. Then you call me a Marxist? Wow, you must really live in a little Fux propaganda bubble. in fact one of my economics profs was a Marxist, so at least I have an understanding of an economic philosophy i don’t follow.

    A gridlock? Republicans just keep showing that they DO NOT care about the American people even though WE, OUR TAXES pay for everything. Unfortunately Republicans won’t allow them to benefit us! Democrats put forth a $2000mth payment for ALL AMERICANS for 4mths and McConnell still won’t bring it to a vote.. The 1% got MILLIONS AND MILLIONS from OUR TAXES, Republican voters, YOURS TOO!! Stand up with us for US ALL!

    Ban choke holds, allow police misconduct files to be seen by other police departments.. Why is that a bad thing Republicans????

      @Scotch Morrison exactly

    • @Furion Max no, they’re NOT “equally horrible”. One party has CONTINUOUSLY put party BEFORE country, to put the interests of the few BEFORE the interests of.the many, to be nothing more than thieving opportunists who seek to divide the nation to keep their small, white, rich base in power.

    We need to vote blue all across the board. Vote every single Republicans OUT.

    • @Patricia roe The USA is crumbling down under the tRump regime. Everyting is going terribly wrong. This administration is a disaster. Everything is wrong. Biden has a lot to do to slow down and stop the disintegration of the U.S. government. Remember when Steve Bannon and Rumpy were happily deconstructing the administrative state? Well, this disastrous response to the pandemic is a direct consequence of that mismanagement.
      Laugh all that you want, I don’t care. I know that Biden is the best hope for America. 🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🌊🌊🌊

    • Patricia roe | June 11, 2020 at 8:04 PM | Reply

      @Sperup AD Don’t you understand that Trump is the product of a system that has failed us by policies that were put in place by 2 parties? To continue to support them is never going to change things! If it continues there will be another Trump in the near future. The policies have to change in this country. And I am telling you status quo Joe nor Trump will do that. When are you going to realize the manipulation of both parties always putting you in the same place with no choice other than what they want to hand you? Do you even know some of the restrictions and rules they have in place that keep a 3rd party from even trying to emerge as a viable force? If we want to understand why all this occurs then knowledge is power and people had better start doing their research, so they can have enough information to change things for the better. Instead of swallowing up the propaganda the parties and the news media feed us. Am I a rebel, yes and I am a 72 year woman, voting for over 50 years that is no longer going to sit back and watch what we have been allowing to occur. Any more than those protestors are..

    • @Patricia roe You don’t have to tell me about the lack of choices. I know that a bipartidist system is a rigged system. It would be great to have real choices. I am independent because no candidate, party, or organization fills all my requirements. And, I realize that there is no perfect candidate. However, right now, there is a special situation that goes beyond a partidist fight. Putin is behind trump, and some republicans are part of the plot. It is America against tRump and his partner in crime, namely, Vlad Vlad Putin.
      Besides, I don’t trust any news outlet, there are the mediocre ones, and a lot of bad ones. However, out of all those lies, you can somehow discern the situation that is closest to the actual happenings.
      If you were to read Russian newspapers like Russia Today, Sputnik, Pravda, Itar-Tass, and a few others, you would see that we as a nation are in the crosshairs of Russian nationalists that want to displace the US as a hegemonic power in the world.
      There is a Russian “revival” sponsored by Putin and a few other guys like Alexander Dugin. Putin is using his oligarchs as an Oprichnina, individuals like Oleg Deripaska (who is close to Mitch McConnell,) and Yevgeny Progozhin are instrumental in undermining American democracy from within by penetrating into American circles.
      Infiltration is evident in political and civil organizations like the NRA/GOP.
      Biden is pro-USA, tRump is pro-Putin.
      You have a point, but, I believe that we are not living under normal circumstances, so, pushing for more political parties, although it is a great idea, it is not feasable at the moment. We have an existential crisis too; we have a number of crises in our hands, and the economy is still going to tank. The pandemic is getting worse, and the first and second waves are coming one on top of the other, no time to take a breath.
      We need leadership, and Bunker boi is not the one. Biden came out of his house when things got rough with demonstrations getting out of control and spoke in the way that presidents speak.
      If you recommend doing research, do your own research about those Rooskies.
      You might be amazed at the plans they have for America.
      The FSB is pretty active in this election. Cozy Bear is one of their names.

    • That would help if the dems weren’t jyst as corrupt as the republicans. All politi Ian’s are in it for the money and power; they will do nothing for the everyday Americans.

    • Gary Hoskins | June 11, 2020 at 1:54 PM | Reply

      The only states going bankrupt are blue states because of poor management.

    • Markus Stewart | June 11, 2020 at 2:46 PM | Reply

      @Gary Hoskins I just love it when Trump drones make comments like that! Here’s a fact for you If the blue states go bankrupt it’s because they give the most money to the feds, where as many red states take out the most and but put in the least, such as that good old boy Moscow Mitch’s Kentucky that’s the 5th largest welfare state! I’ll be glad to give you figures on this!

    • @Gary Hoskins It’s become obvious the Metro Marxists intend to completely destroy any type of black socioeconomic infrastructure. They’ve long since annihilated Detroit and Chicago. Not 100% sure what strategy is here other than simple Cloven Piven Marxism which dictates total collapse and rebuild under authoritarian Marxism? Once again, the Marxists have found the perfect useful idiots with the inner city blacks. It’s a National tragedy blacks cannot see how the Marxists use black emotional rage against them.

      @Robert Woodman I’m not sure but I think what happened to the Grand Old Patriarchy is that they started to believe their own spin. You know the Republicans were kind of gimping along before Trump. They couldn’t get anyone elected. That’s why all these crazies felt emboldened.

  17. Spineles and gutless doesn’t come close to descibe the crooks in the GOP!
