Rep. Thompson: These Officers Helped Save Our Democracy


    1. I wonder how cnn, msdnc has been able to lie and spin stories for the passed 5 years and then retract them after you dem supporters drank that kool-aid?

    2. @princess kenyetta just remember that last year you leftist ran over several cities causing destruction and looting stores, taking over police precincts and killing people.

  1. I don’t know if they have or not but I’m really glad I haven’t heard about the right-wing and Trump trying to blame this all on George Soros. I mean as a Jew who survived the Holocaust the right-wing would have us believe he’s guilty of everything that’s happened in America

  2. These officers should be honored for their patriotism. The commitee has to go to the bottom of this…DJT.

    1. Did you bother honouring the blue line from the 2020 series of riots ? You certainly never organised any inquests .

    2. @david brandie but was not tRump in office? why did he not organize any inquires in 2020? oh never mind he was golfing and planning his lies early about upcomming election right?

    3. @Ral Deform no need to respond to that troll (o sho joe). just report him and ignore. he just wants attention. truth means nothing to him.

    4. @chop shop Yes he was . It was the dreadful , corrupt democrat party that refused any investigations .

    5. @david brandie Back then you had, the House, the Senate AND the Whitehouse. Why didn’t they do anything should be your question – but you are too dumb to even remember that aren’t? All you have the capacity to digest is the latest talking point FOX and OANN have fed you

  3. Jan 6 was a desperation move, the Reps lost, and knew we may never win another election again, they rigged the system and still lost, the pendulum swings left, and hard

    1. Young people are not putting up with this.

      Young people have lots of energy and they will show up.

      More power to generation Z

    2. Never count them out since TRUMPERS have been empowered and well funded. This only goes away with a conviction on Trump.

    3. @A. Barker totally agree. They need to charge and convict Trump of either inciting a riot, insurrection or attempted coup.

    1. @MeanGeneSanDiego Notice how tje left does the machines bidding while the righteous are all about Freedoms and less government?

    1. They starting to work on subpoenas and start working on the enforcement, I think that is a good idea!

    1. @J Bifulco Albany, N.Y.: Officer sent to the hospital after protester throws a brick at him

      Atlanta: Officer Maximilian Brewer underwent surgery after a protester hit him with an ATV 

      Brockton, Mass.: One state trooper and a few local Brockton police officers suffered minor injuries

      Buffalo, N.Y.: Two police officers are hit by a vehicle and one other has his leg broken and pelvis shattered after protesters run him over

      Champaign, Ill: Several police officers suffered minor injuries after allegedly being assaulted

      Cincinnati, Ohio: Officer narrowly escaped death after a bullet struck his ballistic helmet

      Columbia, S.C.: 15 law enforcement personnel injured during a Saturday riot

      Chicago: 132 Chicago Police Department officers injured in violent riots in the city

      Davenport, Iowa: A plainclothes police officer injured after an individual opened fire on his vehicle

      Denver: Three city police officers sent to the hospital after a hit-and-run that also injured a bystander

      Harrisburg, Penn.: Two police officers sent to the hospital during a violent protest on Saturday

      Las Vegas: One cop put on life support after he was shot in the head during a violent protest on Monday; 12 additional officers injured during Friday’s rioting

      Los Angeles: 27 LAPD officers injured during weekend rioting

      Lynchburg, Va.: Several officers were shot at during protests but were not injured  

      Minnesota: Police officers shot at during a protest, and a precinct in the city was set on fire by protesters…….

    2. @J Bifulco where were these democrats who supported BLM terrorist while they were burning, looting and murdering all over the country for months?

  4. If the Republican’s want to live by the sword on this, denying and deflecting what we can see for our own eyes? They can fall on that same sword and die by it as well…

    1. You sound like a very bad man… I bet you are a tough guy in real life… You sound so brave and warlike… WOW!!! You have impressed me with you typed man hood….

    2. @david brandie same lame comment david. exaggerate some riots in 2020 and downplay the current investigation on jan 6.
      and there is the fact 2020 protests were about facts. jan 6 was about lies right?

    3. @chop shop that isn’t true. The BLM riots took several cities and lasted 8 months. The jan 6 attack lasted no more than a day, and only took a dumb building

    4. @Jady M they did not take any city. and the capitol building with members of congress inside confirming election is a big deal. but that don’t matter to a maga moron.

    5. @david brandie Caused by the white supremacists like the Proud Boys and illegal police brutality? Yes, the Republicans are 100% guilty of those attacks and should be made to answer for supporting those terrorists while BLM were peacefully protesting for equal rights.

  5. I’m not a liberal or a democrat and have many criticisms of those entities, but I am firstly a moral person.

    Labels don’t matter at all when your country is being taken over by fascists.

    There’s no neutral on the fascism train. You can either work for or against fascism.

    There’s no neutral on the racism train. You can either work for or against racism.

    You can either work for working-class democracy or against it.

    You are on the democracy train whether you realize it or not. If you don’t take a stand, you took a stand.

    Conservatism is a bogus economic ideology and social identity that needs to go the way of dead religions. Conservatives meet Druids.

    1. @david brandie I perceive your mentality. According to Trump, your supreme leader, America is like a third world country, with rigged elections, rigged courts, rigged FBI, seventeen rigged intelligence agencies, rigged medical community, rigged media, etc., so why are you still living here and making a nuisance of yourself? You’re not going to make America white again, so just move to Russia, the country that Trump never criticizes, that is 99.9% white, and ruled by a sociopathic dictator. The American people will thank you for it.

    2. Integrity and ethics
      are apparently too heavy to shoulder
      for this latest incarnation of the GOP
      and have become
      something to be flung contemptuously
      into the ditch
      along with any other
      troublesome, weighty vestiges
      of honor.

    1. I have one for you? The only way you can have a rally is get a permit, right? They ALL KNEW THEY WERE COMING, RIGHT? They ALL knew how HUGE Trump rallies were and still are, right? We ALL know the election was stolen, right? The dems want to rig the next one too, right? Anyone with a brain can see this coming!

  6. It boggles my mind that these people have to say “where the facts lead us,” when most of it all played out in front of the whole world lol

    1. @RYNNY KITTY “It goes through the air,” Trump told the Bob Woodward on February 7, 2020.

      “That’s always tougher than the touch. You don’t have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed.

      “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus.”

      Later that month, Trump promised the virus was “very much under control”, and that the case count would soon be close to zero. He also publicly implied the flu was more dangerous than Covid-19.

    2. @soulful41 All these simpletons reject all news, except RiechWingNoise, Faux only showed the wide shot of the flag wavers, and never the brutal beatings that actually happened.

  7. It is important to remember our right wingers are working with right wingers all over Europe which are financed by Putin. Are our own right wingers financed by Putin? Need an answer on this.

    1. They never needed your vote, so… I guess you’re just not as significant as you thought you were!

  8. An Act Of War
    To Over Throw Constitutional Law,
    Even With ROE Allowing Only Primitive Weapons,
    Is Still An Act Of War, And Thereby An Act Of Treason.

    1. @david brandie Apart from the unconstitutional voter suppression the Republicans enacted you mean? None.

  9. I think all the GOP should go to Russia and be in Putin’s political system
    America political system is not to cover things up .

  10. The decline of democracy starts with “believe what we say not what you see.” The Ex guy said that himself. For the love of God we watched this unfold right before our eyes

  11. Last three times I’ve seen Elise Jordan on this show, she looks like she’s in a hypnotic trance. What have they done to her?
