    1. Only it was something Obama employed in 2015 to spy on the Trump campaign. Don’t believe me? Research who Admiral Mike Rogers is and the evidence he presented of DNC operatives abusing the NSA.

    2. @Pat Rec Proven wrong over and over again, but sure – you Republicans love your zombie lies, don’t you?

    1. Right you are. They also have info on their own, to make SURE they tow the line. Personal investigations going on for years. It’s obvious.

    1. @Charlie Manzani What msm? Fox is watched by more people than any other network, it’s more mainstream media than the channels it keeps deriding as “the media”.

    1. Learn about the story of Admiral Mike Rogers and the Democrats abusing the NSA to unmask their political enemies. You’ll find this story is simply the DNC’s version of what they actually did in 2015 under Obama. Democrats aren’t known for their original thought.

    2. @Toke Joker exactly….. thats like 1 of the 2 or 3 words they know…. its either fascist, RAYSISSSSS, or nazi lol…. they are soooooo cringe.

    1. @Riju Bidani A “joke” who has a Pulitzer Prize. And the Democratic Party is worthy of all the scorn it gets. So is the GOP, yes.

    2. @Bjorn Jorgenbjorgenhoogenboogen Yes, having a Pulitzer doesn’t preclude you from being a joke – and Greenwald most certainly is a joke. And there are real, tangible differences between the two parties, which you would know if you ever paid any attention, but I suppose that’s too difficult for you, pea-brain.

    3. @Riju Bidani You have zero idea what you’re talking about. What besides pretty rhetoric separates the Dems from the GOP? And what exactly makes Greenwald a “joke”? The fact that he doesn’t parrot the BS DNC talking points?

    4. @Bjorn Jorgenbjorgenhoogenboogen the facts: A judge ordered the parent company for right-wing cable network One America News Network to pay MSNBC and host Rachel Maddow nearly $250,000 in legal fees after a failed defamation lawsuit.

      U.S. District Judge Cynthia Bashant ruled last May that “no set of facts that could support a claim for defamation based on Maddow’s statement.”

    5. @Bjorn Jorgenbjorgenhoogenboogen
      So you’re admitting that the judge didn’t say anything like your interpretation of the lawsuit implied. That it was about nothing more than one statement Maddow made.

  1. “For nothing hid, that shall not be made manifest; nor (anything) secret, that shall not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17 (ASV)
    So much for the spies.

  2. Odd here in the UK when you hear the words right wing you hear the name Putin, but when Russia is mentioned in politics in the US you think Communist and Putin. Modern Russia under Putin is not a Communist state it is a right leaning autocracy .

    1. @Lazarus Jones My point exactly ! The US seems to be caught up in the McCarthy era and not caught up with were Russian politics now stand , even their reputation here in Europe as football ( soccer) fans is that they are right wing !

    2. @Parris Price
      OP is correct. Russia’s a right leaning autocracy. Nothing about it’s economy or system of government is Communist.

    3. @Parris Price Not entirely sure why we are arguing this as we both agree, dumps preference for right wing dictators is obvious to us here in Europe . All I am saying is that it seems that “repulikkkan” ( your spelling not mine ) supporters don’t seem to realise that Russia is not a communist country ! ” dump” ( again your words not mine ) is only interested is what he personally can gain not what is best for the country, he seems not to care if the autocrat in charge is left or right wing as long as he personally can make money from mimicking their behaviour.

    4. @Nicky Brooks
      These people don’t even know where American politics stand nevermind Russia. Among certain white, middle class trumpy’s, Putin polls higher than Biden. !

  3. So you pay a guy $50,000,and he donates $20,000 to infiltrate the opposition,so it’s walking a line,but it’s obviously dubious,if not illegal ? It’s really discomforting to see what people in politics will do for either money,or power.

    1. @robert caldwell No, actually T commuted his sentence. Had he pardoned Stone, as he did the others, the pardon means you are guilty of a crime. SCOTUS ruled on this long ago. For T and Stone, though, the bigger issue is in accepting a pardon, you lose your right to plead the 5th. T and Stone have been besties forever and would never want Stone to HAVE to answer questions.

    1. and would be here if we didn’t absolutely refuse to believe any rich person is ever an actual criminal. We fill prisons with shoplifters for slave labor, but someone who steals the entire store, the chain of stores, and the company the stores belong to is just obeying the “natural law” of HAVING to make “the most money”…. as long as you don’t NEED the loaf of bread, stealing the bakery is “admirable”.

    1. @Orbie Bibbee LOL You guys? You seem to claim to be knowledgeable of a book you never read either. You must be parroting what someone told you. You guys are really good at that. Actually doing research is out of the question, else should you break away from the mob, mentality you get the cancel culture treatment. So you just keep parroting the factless propaganda. Not even knowing it’s just that.

    2. @Orbie Bibbee LOL just to show you how absolutely ignorant you are. Elaine Chao is from Taiwan. To complete your ignorance they are arch enemies of Bidens boss Xi Jinping.

    3. @Starlight Voyager This is the “I’m Rubber and you’re glue defense.” lame …Try the Chewbacca defense much better.

    4. @Starlight Voyager Where is this proof? No links? Nobody believes the crap you people keep spouting off. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, Sydney Powell and you have all the proof, and just want to keep it to yourselves. But we’re clueless, right.

    5. @Orbie Bibbee No this is the “yeah I know I’m clueless (that China and Taiwan are enemies) so now I’ll try to save face by trying to diverting attention “. Much like Biden constantly walking back his ignorant remarks.

  4. Sounds like someone needs to watch The Family on Netflix. It’ll inform you on all you need to know about the past 5-10 years and what conservative goals are.

    1. You are the only other person who has mentioned this docuseries and everyone needs to see it. Tells you everything you need to know about right wing agenda, the evangelical Christians and these conservatives who have the future all mapped out for the US. Makes everything the alt-right is doing now to take over and take the population back to the dark ages.

    1. Yep. The talking heads on both sides are using divide and conquer tactics. Yawn. Keep watching the “news” you dummies!!

    2. @Shifu Sage antifa is the mirror image of Nazi Brownshirts, violently attacking political opposition, and Nazis vilified Jews just as Democrats are vilifying White folks. The months of leftist rioting is reminiscent of Kristallnacht. The Dems might as well rename themselves The National Socialist Party.

  5. How about the fake candidates that the GOP sponsored in a couple of Florida elections? The candidates used names almost identical to the Democrat in order to confuse voters and the plan actually worked. Those “candidates” disappeared with one fleeing to Sweden or some other northern European country.

  6. This doesn’t surprise me at all!! Look at Manchin and Sinema, they’re probably in Congress to prevent Democrats from passing any bills that actually matter or in the least being paid off by Republicans! There’s some reason why Manchin and Sinema are aligning with Republicans rather than Democrats, I’ve been extremely suspicious of them for a while. Sure there’s other Democrats being paid off too..

    1. Not necessarily. It’s because they haven’t gone “woke” and as far left as some Democrats. Take a look at some old speeches by Bill Clinton or even early on when Obama first became president. They said the exact same things that Trump was saying! It’s unbelievable when you go back and watch this. I have no clue what happened to the Democrat party, but they aren’t what they used to be, that’s for sure. No wonder so many people are walking away from them. As Reagan said, “I didn’t leave the Democrat party, the Democrat party left me.”

    2. Sadly, my guess is that there’s a number of “Old School” and centrist Dem’s that just want to go back to making symbolic gestures on behalf of Americans, crafting corporate welfare and pocketing corporate money and are happy to let Manchin and Sinema take all the heat for it. Still better than the denial of facts/reality, fascism and racism in the GQP, but I certainly feel that not treating the threat from the right seriously is far more dangerous then they want to admit.

    3. @J K Funny, that’s exactly what actual conservatives are saying about Republicans at the moment. It’s almost bizarre how the right has morphed from “conservative” values to nationalism, populism and some other uglier isms so quickly, almost as if they already were all those things and were just gaslighting with “conservative values”, financial responsibility, and small government. Honestly if they didn’t have hypocrisy Republicans would have no values at all.

    4. @Monty Brown I’m actually glad that they have changed. Which is why many moderates and libertarians have moved to the republican party. You’re going to see more of that as the democrats swing even deeper into radical Marxist ideologies. JFK is rolling over in his grave. Sure isn’t the democratic party that he knew.
