    1. @Lana Bulmer Speak for yourself. The rest of the world needs to admit the truth about America and look to a new more equal and plural world order. Yes, the rest of the world have their problems too but we should be looking beyond US hegemony.

    2. @Nicholas Metrano You are so right, but we in the US “speak with forked tongue” as a famous Indian warrior once said. It’s hypocritical to do it and spout democracy at the same time.

    3. @Dr X I fear no one. I will push back against tyranny, authoritarianism and extremists ideologies from both sides. But right now we are facing very real threats the world over. COVID 19, climate change and escalating cultural disputes. Now is the time more then ever to unite as a country to help elevate the world and fight against these issues. To be the American nation that guides the way by our positive influence on the world, opposed to being the looming presences over it.
      We can’t hope to due that with someone in office who actively seeks to divide us such is the case now. Who denies the existence of issues rather then addressing them. Someone getting ready to set the house on fire if he loses it by stoking the flames of hate.
      Sure, I have my guns and the second amendment that secures our right to use them in defense against such tyrannical threats. But now my friend is the time to use our first to speak freely against such evils. Now is the time to take spirited action against these threats. Right now that means we have to vote for Biden and oust the thing impeding us from achieving greatness. And should a new threat grow we will hold steadfast against it when it comes.

  1. Antifa & BLM riot for months, but CNN tells you the proud boys are the real problem. Their leader is an afro-cuban, you’d have to be a CNN viewer to believe white supremacists take orders from that guy.
    Meanwhile Trump won a 66% poll in Telemundo. CNN’s desperate to call Trump racist because if he gets more latin voters he wins

    1. Queazy They are being manipulated on a sophisticated level. Many of the comments here that are so warm and fuzzy about this two bit lawyer are only there to reinforce people’s emotions.

  2. I don’t think he even understands what the duties of being President. To him being President means he can do whatever he wants, when he wants.and the law does not apply ts him kin to keep is namhim. I think he should be charged to manslaughter, treason idk…not only did he show his inability to do his job, but even after the fact continues to keep the lie going. He knew the facts. That’s premeditated with intent that cost the lives of so many. Isn’t it?

  3. and nobody is talking about his taxes today.
    He’s already made it yesterday’s news.
    You people are being played like a piano.

    1. @enkidude •My point is that Trump is controlling the news cycle’s talking points.
      My apologies if it was not put obviously enough for you to immediately grasp it.

    2. This is kinda a bigger deal. Don’t get me wrong, it is fucked that I paid less in taxes than he did, and he is supposed to be a billionaire, but him trying to prep the country for a civil war is much much much worse.

    3. @DudeWatches “This is kinda a bigger deal.”
      Correct. That’s his m.o. He constantly escalates the level of outrage, particularly when he’s in trouble. At other times he just keeps the churn going.
      I figure that taxes is almost the number one thing in his own hierarchy of importance. The info in them is going to bring his entire organisation down, a matter of time only.

    4. @Richard Christie
      Well, the number 1 thing in my hierarchy of importance is not getting embroiled in a civil war with Trump’s ridiculous cult. So yeah, I don’t care about his shitty tax returns as much as I care about his attempt to rouse his supporters to violence.

    1. @MJB For Trump Trump will win by a landslide. Just look at his rally’s and now online. The cats out of the bag and it’s not going back in….

    2. @peekosthename President Trump: “We will STOP the radical indoctrination of our students and RESTORE Patriotic education to our schools! We will teach our children to LOVE our country, honor our HISTORY and always RESPECT our GREAT American Flag!!” This is why Trump will WIN!!

    3. @MJB For Trump I think George Soro’s is about to get picked. He’s is 100% behind the riots. October has me excited! It’s not Red October for nothing.

    1. @1sexiicoco like you all say about the which according to you is in Trump’s pocket FBI is in Joe Biden’s pocket. So I don’t buy this. Antifa has a flag. How does an idea have a flag?

    1. Sandy Allen read a book idiot! Hitler is responsible for over 15 million deaths… Trump only killed terrorist that dementia joe and Islamic Muslim Obuma let go

  4. Daily reminder: A)Brokohontas pays less taxes than all of us sometimes none
    B) Tweetler knew in early February a plague was coming and called it a Hoax a Hoax that have taken more of our Brothers and Sisters than all the wars combined

    1. If Trump leaves the Scotus seat till after he wins the election, fair play.
      If he installs a judge that may be called upon to vote him into power, that is packing the court.

    2. Colin, you’re wrong! Trump is not packing the Supreme Court He’s making it Whole again. Keep in mind that if the dems win and do actually pack the court the republicans will in turn do the same once they have the White House again. When will it stop? After we have 20,40, 60 judges? What upsets me the most is that People want to vote for Biden just because he’s not Trump but don’t actually realize what the true impact that Biden’s agenda will do to the economy and all American citizens. I’m not trying to stop you from voting for Biden. All I ask is that you educate yourself first before voting. If you’re ok with how Biden’s platform once in office will change your rights as an American than I’m ok with that but I urge you to just check it out k. Once you let the genie out of the bottle theirs no going back! P.S. Remember that AOC,Pelosi,Kamala,Bernie e.t.c. Will actually be telling Biden everything that they need him to do & that’s what truly scares me!

    1. @Shawntel Monroe yes. Longer answer? Voting changes nothing and I knew that when I voted. The last four years have just been proof.

  5. “You are a slow learner, Winston.”
    “How can I help it? How can I help but see what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.”
    “Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.”
    ― George Orwell, 1984

    1. Thanks for that. When I read that book in 9th grade, I thought it was totally unrealistic. Now it feels like part of daily life. And it’s not just Trump. We’ll be fighting this for a long time coming.

    1. He praised him while he worked for Trump and was highly paid. Then he wasn’t paid. You would do the same most likely.

  6. The attorney that turned on his client this guy is awful I wouldn’t read his book if he gave it to me most likely it’s going to end up in the thrift store somewhere for $0.10
