    The weight of a conscience would be weighing down on at decent human!

    • “The weight of a conscience would be weighing down on a decent human,” but a snake merely burrows deeper into the ground. A few facts that few know: The selfish human EGO is what the Bible refers to as “the serpent,” “the devil,” and “satan.” And an “antichrist” is one who is RULED by the selfish human ego. (Hello, Donald.) Also, since ancient times, the FOX (as in “Fox News”) is an esoteric symbol for satan and antichrist, which is why Jesus Christ referred to King Herod as “that fox.”. The deepest of truths are so simple and yet known to so few. From the simple cure for cancer to the very Meaning of Life, I’ve got ’em. “Seek and ye shall find.” A teacher and prophet of God has spoken……

      So you deceitful lowlifes are now arbiters of decency?

  2. My God these Republicans are trying to to blame the whistle blower for producing false statements

    • @Joy Brautigam Adam Schiff you mean?

    • @Dave Schultz And if your trump were a democrat, youโ€™d be spewing what??? You Basers sure are peeing your pants grasping for everything but the corruption staring you in the face.

    • It is called fruit from a poison tree

    • Dave Schultz: how can people be so ignorant? For people like you there is no cure … feel pity for you!

    • @Dave Schultz Are you aware that Donald Trump was a Democrat his whole life, even giving money to Hillary when she went against Barack Obama, until he saw the opportunity that the White House could bring for his businesses to do better & for Putin to let him build a resort over in Russia?

  3. Trump has been trying to rewrite history. It looks like history is going to rewrite him

    • @quietman356 123455 Don’t know whether to like or dislike your comment. lol Sadly, you are correct.

    • @olobar5 People that have known Donald Trump for years & people that live in New York & have heard what he’s been doing for 50 years, say that he’s a conman. He was just found guilty (again) a few weeks ago of conning people for money in his fake college. He was found guilty of using $10,000 that was meant for charity, he bought a painting of himself. If you go to the courthouse in New York where he filed them, you will see several times that he filed for bankruptcy thereby pocketing the money instead of paying the people who already did the work.

    • @leo alex So, then you know our technology has advanced tremendously, therefore our knowledge as well. So, of course, you are educated enough to know that humans’ alterations of the chemicals, gases, plants, & animals on Earth–since the start of the Industrial Revolution to now, with adding in the last 50 years of mass animal production for food, mass transportation production, mass deforestation of the rain forest, etc.–has caused an imbalance, therefore rendering the Earth incapable of correcting itself. Humans need to correct the imbalance that humans created, so that the Earth & everything on it does not die from our alterations.

    • @Jackie 371 Actually, it started long before the Indrustial Revolution, like all the way back to when to first cities were built. The Middle East was green and verdant 4-6 thousand years ago. Yes, the desert can be regreened.

    • @Jackie 371 We knew about that College suit 3-4 years ago. It was a hired body who caused that mess.
      Bankruptcy is what people in real estate have to deal with in recessions like Chrysler, etc.
      Just look around at the nation’s economy. That’s the ONLY thing most of us really care about. It’s going great and the Dems are jeopardizing it with their selfish power hungry leaders in the House who need to be replaced. They’re the ones who are always wrong in the end. Maybe in 2022 or 2024 Jackie, but not now – there’s nobody better right now in 2020.

  4. “I am disgusted by the conduct of Republican senators who pose as reputable people, but shamelessly hide under rocks instead of calling out the president’s horrendous behavior as the gross misconduct that they know it to be,” Don Ayer

    tRump knows his biggest enemy is the truth !

      @Saynoto Socialists stop calling him our president
      He’s 45 and the devil !!!!โ˜

      Patricia Krumscheid , I see the Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong in you ๐Ÿ˜

  5. Iโ€™ve been an international observer for the past 3 years, so neither Democrat nor Republican.
    My views are based on what I think is right, irrespective of party.
    I was initially shocked by Trump and the fact he had 35-40% support. The lies, the adultery, the racism, the misogyny, the nepotism etc etc.
    I thought… surely the American system will kick in soon. What is right will take precedence over these actions and he will leave office.
    But no… he and his supporters persist.
    And the hearings are a continuation. I am โ€œgob smackedโ€ (thatโ€™s worse than shocked).
    Impeachment has no meaning if each side places partisanship over right & wrong.
    Assuming the Supreme Court can still be considered unbiased, why canโ€™t they oversee the proceedings?
    Amend the Constitution and let justice work, whichever way it falls.
    A view from afar

    • @Tom Rhodes Thanks for the info. I didn’t know some of that. In the beginning of Trump, I thought he may be the Antichrist, but now I think he’s not–because he’s not able to fool enough people. Half of America realizes he’s a lying con-artist & we believe the people that were his friends & neighbors.

    • @Fred P lol AMEN!

    • @Ginger Rose Donald Trump & the Republicans signed the tax bill that started out giving the middle class a break & by the 5th year, it taxes them (& poor people) the most & gives the richest people the most breaks. Their tax plan raises the debt by over $4 trillion. Donald Trump was seen at Mara-Lago, dining & celebrating with his rich friends, saying, “…I just made you a lot richer.”

      This year, Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, made over $11 billion & paid $0 in taxes, he got a refund of $129 million. Meanwhile, others, who’s financial situation had not changed from last year to this, instead of receiving an $8,000 refund, had to pay $8,000. Personally, my finances didn’t change at all & my refund went down $4,000. I made $11,000 last year, $9,000 is basic rent & utilities. (I had a 20 year-old car; now none.) Because of Donald Trump, Jeff Bezos got my $4,000 & the middle-incomers’ $8,000. Who do you think needs that money more?

      Donald Trump did not drain the swamp, ma’am, he filled it. He put people in the top position of several different departments who were publicly against that department. Like the guy he hired to oversee the protection of our sacred lands was an oil executive before getting the job. Now, he’s in court trying to free up protected land to start drilling for oil on it. Trump put a guy in to lead the EPA who blatantly fought against the EPA for years. The guy immediately stopped & reversed regulations on the biggest air & water polluters in America. And on & on…

      All the corruption that you are seeing are people hired by Donald Trump & are now getting in legal trouble & going to jail. Donald Trump’s closest business associates are in jail. The Mueller Report confirmed several illegal things Donald Trump has done & over 650 former Federal prosecutors have signed a paper stating that the facts are strong enough to pursue charges & win against Donald Trump–for obstruction of justice & “corrupt intent”.

      Innocent people don’t fight to keep people–the ones closest to them–from testifying. Innocent people don’t fight in court to keep conversations, paperwork, legal & financial documents secret. Innocent people show it all & clear their name.

      Donald Trump was a Democrat most of his life, before realizing he could win as a Republican & it would be good for his business, including one that he wanted to build in Russia. He contributed money to Hillary when she ran against Barack Obama. Donald Trump invited Bill & Hillary to his wedding.

      I agree to read the actual documents! Go to the New York courthouses where he filed for bankruptcy five times, thereby not paying the workers that already did the work & Donald Trump kept that money. Go to the courthouse where the paperwork is filed from a few weeks ago showing that he was found guilty of scamming people out of their money with his fake college, when all those people thought they were going to have a real, honest degree & get a decent job out of it. Go to the courthouse where the document is filed that proves he used money that was supposed to go to a charity, to buy himself a $10,000 painting of himself. Thanks for the law info–that explains why Donald Trump hasn’t gotten in trouble for the over 13,000 times he’s lied to the American people since becoming President.

    • @Vlad Impaler Actually, the Grim Reaper Republican that is completely useless & doesn’t get anything done since his rival Harry Reid left.

      @Tom Rhodes — I don’t know about you, but I understand that the “beast”, is the predator which is attacking, killing others, and devouring its victims.
      Exactly like a country, which is attacking another sovereign country on some fabricated lies as a pretext, killing thousands of innocent people, and plundering their natural resources (devouring), subjugating other people by military occupation, while the “beast” keeps gorging on (stealing) their resources, killing all who oppose the Beast, like in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and plotting to do the same in Venezuela, Iran…..

  6. My, my. The trolls are active today. Trump must be getting desperate for him to call on so many minions.

      @Saynoto Socialists LOL no, how about the polls that predicted a blue wave in 2017, 2018 and 2019..? And how about the four states that have flipped from red to blue in just the past year..? Got any polls that show Trump winning in 2020..? Let’s see one.

    But attacking 16-year-olds with Asperger’s WILL move his followers. Evangelical “Christians” get off on Trump’s cruelty.

    • @Some Person Dude, do you understand that these kinds of arguments always work BOTH WAYS? I you accuse Republicans of ‘selective ethics’, do you not see that YOU are exactly the same way, by your OWN logic? You get all apocalyptic because someone ‘attacks a little girl’ (nevermind that noone attacks the girl, we attack powerful MEN who use the poor girl for their own interests) – but that other little boy is fair game because of who his father is?
      And you think you have demonstrated Republicans’ double standards – and not your own, lol? Hilarious.

    • @Ante Bagaric when exactly did I say it was ok to attack children? Please show me my exact quote instead of getting triggered and putting words in my mouth. Come on snowflake, if you’re going to accuse me of things please present the proof…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • They would call themselves “patriots”.

  8. And from the looks of it, the GOP are perfectly fine with going down to history as traitors and Putin’s lapdogs.

    Typical Trump.

    • @Jeremy Backup Agree with all except one item, a lot of the older Republicans do have law degrees & backgrounds on this committee. However, I often think about that these really old guys are still of the mind of the social etiquettes (many times wrong) of the ’40’s-’80’s & SO much has changed since then. They just don’t see society for what it is or else they want to change it back to archaic times.

    • @Andrew Mitchell lol Good way to put it “diversifying their betrayal”! lol

    • @Respect/Walk The whole story is not out yet. One tidbit–Trump called Putin to ask him how he wanted him to handle North Korea.

      Jackie 371 , no I didnโ€™t watch the โ€œ trial โ€œ because it hasnโ€™t happened
      You should shut your mouth until such time you know what youโ€™re talking about

    • @Jackie 371 and Obama asked suadi Arabia how to handle libya

  9. There is content for the “trump presidential library” – we know he does not read, so the only thing he can put in such a library is his tweets. And a copy of his articles of impeachment. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    And who knows, maybe when he dies, his cultists will stuff him or freeze-dry him and put him on display in there – like they do with dead dictators. ๐Ÿ˜‚


    • Trump’s presidential library will be the only one in history where you’re handed a box of crayons before you enter it.

    • Ganiscol: Trump will try to destroy all the incriminating documents from his administration, so that should take care of about 95% of anything else that normally goes in a Presidential Library.

  10. Before Trump’s Asian summit in the Autumn of 2017 there were some Republikkkans, including Lindsey Graham, who were willing to stand up to Trump.

    Then Trump has a unscheduled secret meeting with Putin and all the Republikkkans suddenly became subservient to Trump (and Putin).

    We still do not know what Putin told Trump in all those secret meetings.

    If Russia has the capabilities to hack into the DNC computer systems, then the Russians surely have hacked into the Republikkkan’s computer systems.

    To make Republikkkans agents of Russia, what dirty little secrets does Putin have on the Republikkkans?

    There needs to be an independent investigation into every Republikkkan traitor in Congress.

  11. Agent orange said in 1998, if he ever run for office, heโ€™d run as a Republican. He said republicans are the dumbest voters in the country, and they believe everything on Fox News.

  12. Donโ€™t be blind with your star spangled eyes, tRump has abused his power in office to hold Ukraine aid to dig dirt on a political campaign opponent! Bottom line tRump has been caught! Smh!

  13. Trumpโ€™s worried about those tax and financial records getting into prosecutors hands… Trump in prison 2020!!!! ๐Ÿ˜„

  14. The whole world is laughing at
    Deranged Donny. He is a joke.

  15. Spare a thought for Donny. The noise in his head must be frightening even if deserved

  16. All the hamberders he eat also weight down their share.

  17. Merry Christmas pres. Trump*
    Here is your impeachment asterisk.

  18. *RMR when “The Chosen One” lied saying “Social media blocks people from following him”?*

  19. He’s the first president in history, to never utter the words my fellow Americans. I don’t think he’s ever addressed the American people. He only talks to his followers and Twitter. These are strange times

  20. Donald J Trump. Says Trump: ” The J stands for genius.”
