  1. So they used tear gas to clear the way for contractors to install some fencing? Is that standard practice in the US?

    1. @Mark Eldridge lol too soon to note any substantial policy changes, though I’m sure theyll be typical bureaucratic Democrat bullscrap that corrupt, corporate shilling they all do to pretend they arent paid off by corporations. Though, will admit that I love the trolling their doing in trying to side step Manchin by going straight to WV instead of being passive about initiatives..

    2. @Frank A. Roose I gotta the direction they seem to be trying to force the country in going is pretty scary. It also sickens me the way that they are using race to pick up momentum preying on the weak minded victim mentality people. I fear the worst is yet to come and truly believe they are bringing out the worst in people I just hope everyone is prepared for what this all leads too.

    3. @Mark Eldridge pretty important when the last administration openly supported white supremacists without any remorse until after the fact.

  2. Time to clear the senate and congress of do nothing lawmakers looking for names and their backers to start boycotting them

    1. @WellDone Baku Obama couldn’t get anything past because of the Turtle.. he barely got obamacare past.. he never had a supermajority.. if he did it wouldn’t have been as hard to get things done.. The same thing is happening under Biden… but come midterms Americans will vote out these no good and do nothing GQP squatters/trolls .. maybe then Biden will actually get a Majority… or super Majority right now its tied…

    2. @itzybitzyspyder tv i will cry in happiness when trump does go to prison lol

      I Love hearing the uneducated

  3. “The narrative we thought we knew is not the reality.” The gaslighting has become physically painful.

    1. @Roger Stritmatter why is it that the brainwashed still dont get that what MSNBC tells them is always an allegation and never proven?

    2. @Your Big Head Cousin that’s because when its a fact it CAN be explained the biden voters are incapable of this special skill.

    3. @Jay Mas That’s funny, the MSM, excluding Fox of course, claimed that Trump attempted a quid pro quo with Ukraine and then over a year later we hear audio of his personal attorney doing exactly that on his behalf. Crazy right?

  4. “Lafayette was a foreshadowing.”
    Same report: “The clearing of the park had nothing to do with the President.”
    They can’t even tell the truth without contradicting themselves out of “pride for their allegiance”.

    1. This part angered me the most. How dare they equate 1st Amendment protestors with violent, murderous rioters pushing for dictatorship?!?!?!?!?

    1. Yep. Trump had that planned way before hand. His idiots Flynn and Giuliani admitted the night before “something special will happen tomorrow but we can’t tell you what yet!” They were hoping some representatives were murdered to call for military dictatorship.

  5. There has to come a time when we see a video ,and we all see the same thing. George Carlin.

    1. @Marcilla Smith I think we’re seeing the end of democracy from both parties. I’m heartbroken.

    2. @John Trent Reagan and Bush both gave huge tax cuts to the rich. Reagan started the first ever tax on social security to bring in some money to cover the tax cut shortfall. Trump gave a huge tax cut while we were borrowing money from China to run our military. 83% of Trump’s tax cut when to the top 1%. They both sucked. Unless you’re rich.

    3. @Rick Skeels Well the majority of Americans pay no taxes so it’s hard to cut that. Every person that actually pays taxes got a tax break under Trump.

  6. Sounds like a twisted tale to me……Of course this would come out right before the lawsuit from Black Lives Matter……

    1. @Books & Gaming You screaming systematic racism then vote for a 47 year politician who was mentored by a former kkk leader! Have you seen the latest on Hunters racism?

    2. @Censored User i mean that doesn’t mean anything people have been mentored by bad people all the time and improve from those bad lessons learning better. And hey its better than being endorsed by the KKK like Trump or how he claimed there where fine people on both sides during the unite the right rally.

    3. @Censored User One candidate avowed specifically to do something about systemic racism and acknowledged it exists and also has numerous people in his cabinet who feel the same way, while the other candidate did not. You could take away every other ridiculous untenable position that Trump had from anthropogenic climate change to privatizing education to caging children to not wearing a mask for 6 months and leaving it up to the states and you would still be left with a net positive, not least based on things that were done 20-30 years ago .

  7. ” How many fingers am I holding up now, Winston?”
    I’ll give you a moment to Doublethink about it.

    1. Says the guy reimagining history..?

      Democrats have us living in 1984. This is one of so many lies you guys have been telling for years now. Russia Russia Russia ring a bell? Ffs!!!

    3. @T4000literally DOZENS OF LIVESTREAMS. Reporters from a dozen different countries, including a dozen from here. Hundreds of peaceful protesters, protected by the Constitution (I know, yer a Jan. 6th traitor with a conFakerate flag) this is not even along party lines, except you anti-democracy turds. BTW, I’m not a Dem or Repub.

    4. @AUTTOnomen and yet they literally told you it was the park service and unrelated to Trump within hours of the incident. You’re a bitter clinger; just can’t let go of the programming even when presented with the truth. 1984.

  8. ‘Oh no! We were wrong, how could we have ever been wrong about uselessly trying to witch hunt a orange man!!!’
    Idiots

    1. Are you kidding me? The Orange man found out that they were clearing the street, he wanted credit for it, so he came in afterwards to do a photo op holding up a bible (upside down). We gave him credit for what he wanted credit for and it is a witch hunt?
      The real question is: how come Democrat protesters get treated differently than Republican protesters? That a bunch of peaceful protesters were treated this way, while a bunch of violent protesters that were trying to overturn democracy were treated softly.

  9. Well if the cops didn’t do it, you might wanna investigate who those heavily-armed, teargas-chuckin’ thugs were then.

    1. and who was trying to get the weapons that make people feel like their skin is burning off their bones?

  10. “Over and over we see the central truth: the corporate outlets that most loudly and shrilly denounce “disinformation” — to the point of demanding online censorship and de-platforming in the name of combating it — are, in fact, the ones who spread disinformation most frequently and destructively.” – Glenn Greenwald
