    The dictator trend has a bloody end, yet it repeats itself over and over. There’s always some fool who wants to rule the world.

    That’s what Trump to be a dictator.

  4. Biden need to clean up on all the orange stains over the last 4 years.

  5. 1 billion dollars?? wtf. How many homes in the US could be built for that money?

  6. Biden and Harris should help activist and opponents
    Why are you sending money to these corrupt governments? They collected and split it with their bodies not the poor people and not created jobs

    And how depressing is that…are bar is low with the current administration…from Egypt who we give the most money to…who is looking for a better change in january…HOW PATHETIC IS THAT!!!!!

    • It’s just lousy! (I first read about Egypt and the prisoners… who were so badly treated a few days ago. ) It’s was very stressful. I met a young man, who had lived in Egypt for several years as a student studying there. (He told me how brutal this place was. And, that he had to travel with security guards to get to Sudan. ) He had gone back and was hoping for a good experience. (He told me in Golden, Colorado ..where he was employed as a health care employee at a hospital, that he had missed being in Egypt. ) He said it was before the period called The Arab Spring. He loves their foods especially. Yet, here we all are with this story. Yikes!

  8. >>>The ‘Whole Issue’ here now is not ‘Who’ wins or loses. It is about the ‘Integrity’ and ‘Trust’ of the US voting system. ‘All’ parties should be ‘equally’ committed to investigating irregularities in the process to ‘Certify’ that every registered voter had a ‘Vote’ that was counted correctly and only once. Any lack of support for ‘Transparency’, shadows any party from obtaining acceptance and trust moving forward.

    12th Amendment of the United States of America
    Taken from context of ‘Interactive Constitution’
    The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate; — The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted; — The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.– The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

    Please bring back Ali Velshi to host this hour. Ayman is not a good cable news host.

    IF the stock market was down, MSNBC would surely tell you. DOW breaks 30,000 and not a peep!! WHY?? Because they cannot decide who to give credit to, Obama or Biden?? Oh the confusion!!

  12. Will anyone be surprised if Trump’s dictator buddies suddenly crack down on civil rights advocates or do what Trump wanted to do to U.S. journalists and political opponents, “lock them up” or execute them for treason?

    Trump is my favorite x-dictator.

  14. Another bully running a country

  15. When would America stop intervene other country’s business? Because you paid them? Then I guess Russia and China have the right to have their word on the US election

  16. That guy Bahgat is paid by foreign countries and became an agent working against the Egyptian law. Stop liars from affecting Biden policy

    Let’s talk. As celebrations take place around the world for democracy the US has passed some devastating milestones – nearly 200,000 COVID-19 infections a day and 258,000 deaths. For many months some Americans have resisted wearing protective masks because they, “Take away freedom.” Is this really about taking away freedoms?
    We are a county founded on the compassionate rule of law. We have seat belt laws and second-hand smoke laws. These are just two small examples of laws enacted to protect us when we cannot protect ourselves and each other. When functioning properly our representatives in government have the ability, as defined by constitutions, charters, etc., to do those things we cannot do all by ourselves. This may include building highways, providing K-12 education and let’s not forget protecting us from deadly forest fires, air pollutants and faulty medical devises. Governors, legislators and judges, in addition to the media, are working as best as they can, as quickly as they can and with the best available public health information to keep all of us safe; individually we do not have the collective expertise, human and financial resources to manage these challenges. If they need to do this legally by decree, executive order or other provisions allowed them during emergencies then they are doing their jobs.
    Although most people are doing the best they can to save lives there are some powerful few who are literally killing people. Take Trump and his super spreader events. A Stanford University study found his rallies have killed 700 people and infected 30,000. Columbia University published a study recently on how 130,000-210,000 lives could have been saved if the Trump administration and his devotees had not politicized science a pandemic that has infected over 53 million and killed 1,300,000 world-wide – so far. Approximately 40% of the infected are asymptomatic and never know they may be spreading COVID according to the CDC.
    There is good news. The US government may start distributing a vaccine by the end of the year. It will go to the most vulnerable populations first including front line workers. It does take weeks after the first inoculation for the vaccine to take full effect and more than one booster shot may be necessary. No one knows the duration of immunity for anyone who has recovered from Coronavirus or from any particular vaccine. Pfizer vaccine showed 90% immunity but only for seven days. More needs to be understood. Perhaps the singular greatest problem with regard to vaccines is that too many people have been dissuaded from even getting vaccinated at all. If that is the case, it will prolong moving forward precipitously. It is possible we may be wearing masks well through 2021. Our best line of defense remains masks, social distancing, etc. By taking these basic precautions the University of Washington projects we can save over 65,000 lives by March 2021. Remember, this virus is about 8X deadlier than the 2019 flu and is the third leading cause of death in the US only behind heart disease and cancer. Please fact-check this information yourself. Facing the truth is empowering, freeing. The sooner the more people accept reality, the sooner we can recover together as a country – grieve those we have loved and lost – and collectively address other urgent concerns.
    One last thing – we are fortunate. Do the people resisting wearing a mask really have no understanding of what is true loss of your freedoms? Have we learned nothing from history: slavery, disenfranchisement, imprisonment in jails, ghettos and concentration camps, inscription into armies, forced marriage, starvation… Over 85,000 children (under five) in Yemen have died since 2015 directly because of US foreign policy. Currently, 16 million more Yemen children, women and men face starvation but we can still save them by providing immediate emergency assistance with our International allies. We just have to care enough about their freedom, their literal right to life. I’d like to believe we are capable of understanding false equivalences of facial coverings and the right to life, freedom from extreme suffering. This may not be what we have expected but it is nothing new, not really. And we each have superpowers – our infinite capacity for creative adaptation and a little thing called love. – Please feel free to share this post. Take care, stay safe out there and thank you.
