    1. @John Bohica Because democrats are bad at math. Math relies on logic. Everyone knows lefties can’t count. Why you think your masters call math “wayycist?”

    2. @Dead Head KAROSHOBOBO RAMDALAKA BORO SALAMAKANA. BO SHONOKO KAM BABALA. KOROSHODOBA ISHI KOROSHODOBA ISHA MANARA SHABADA ISHI KOROSHODOBA ISHI NA BA BA BA RAMA ISHI KOROSHODABA MARISHI NORAKOSHODABA MA MA MA RASHA ISHI KOROSHODABA BA BA SHORO MARA ISHI NA NANA.

    3. @Dead Head You are obviously jealous of my anointing. Envy is a SIN. REPENT or risk damnation in the Courts of Heaven. I say this in Christian love and I will pray for you.

    1. @Jake Doe since 1980 it was Reagan Republican, Bush Sr Republican those two 12 years. Then Clinton for 8 then Bush 2 for 8 that’s republicans 20 democrats 8 then Obama for 8 so that’s 20-16. Then trump so 24-16. Republicans have messed things up time and time again for a democrat to have to come in and clean up the mess then the American people never give the democrats enough credit for cleaning up the mess because the republicans lie and obstruct the whole time. Then when the republicans regain power they just give their rich friends tax cuts and things only get worse for the middle class

    2. @Kirk from The Marshall Report ok lmao but total and also at congress and local laval president ois just a public figurehead

    3. @Jake Doe it’s alittle more complex than that but I can see how a small minded conservative could see it that way. Read The Founding Myth by Andrew Seidel and The Soul of America by Jon Meecham. Read The People’s history of the USA even if it has a couple of small inaccuracies the overall point remains true. The story of America has basically revolves around the richest and most power hungry crafting a narrative that kept poor people pitted against each other while they remain able to bleed us dry. They exploit our labor, they exploit our intellectual property, to feed a system that does not promote innovation. Repackaging the same foods medications and .99 cent knock offs in a 1000 formats is not innovation. Every major civilization changing advancement has been paid for by public funding. The space program, vaccines, MRIs, microwaves, safer cars, mass air transport, and the list could go on for hours but the point is every major innovation has been paid for with tax money and not private investment. Private investment only comes when investors can be guaranteed a profit. That’s why the “profit motive” doesn’t actually stimulate innovation. Need stimulates innovation, and directed, targeted funding into research projects stimulates innovation. The next diet pill that doesn’t work isn’t gonna change the world, but giving people access to quality education regardless of where in the US they are born will change the world for the better.

    1. @Fred A Guess the depends on you. Was Nazi Germany good? What about the Hunts? The Confederacy? Who was the good guys in the Persian Greek wars? In reality people fought for what they felt was the best for their people

  2. If not having an ID to vote is suppressing a person’s right to vote – then not having an ID to purchase a gun is suppressing a person’s unalienable Right to bear arms, correct?

    1. @Soul Glow collecting welfare all year an can’t afford an ID….. Hmmm wonder if there may be some underlying problems with this community you speak of.

    1. I just renewed my drivers license today, and posted this news right here. Im black. Its ok everyone, I’m living proof that black people can get IDs and have access and are able to use the internet. I AM NOT OPPRESSED!

    2. As an Independent…I oppose the bill ALSO…so that’s “good news” to me…I don’t like McConnell either…he’s “swamp” just like flip-flopping (POS) career politicians.like Biden and Pelosi….But CNN should INFORM you that MOST DEMOCRATS across the board do believe in proof of identification…NOT all democrats are morons…I live in a Blue state…and I’ve always had to show my ID …

    3. @Bob Loblaw’s law blog
      tRump supporters don’t have enough active brain Cells to form a thought!

    4. @Colin Mahoney Someone come get their grandpa he’s drunk commenting again. Seethe old man!

  3. Amazing how federal agencies see how a good part of the population feels about their political leaders, and they will say or do nothing to help a population. Just defending their jobs and feeling of importance. Must love the smell of a*s, cause it seems like they have their heads crammed up others butts.

    1. That was just an attack on feds. I don’t like them, and they know that, from our past encounters. Don’t like political parisites either. Probably one of the biggest reason, that a population is socially separated, racially divided, hand raised, and politically paper trained. To lead by example of teaching a population how to take sides against each other, point fingers at each other, talk down about and belittle each other, and blame each other and the world around them for all they see wrong in it. As I said, hand raised and politically paper trained. Makes me wonder how your children will be getting along when they grow up? Even adults this day and age don’t set the right examples in front of their children. Many grew up learning the same, and yet everyone knows better for each other than the next. The worlds foremost experts on politically driven bs.

    1. @Robert Irvine yes because after the one we didnt need it. America couldve reopened way sooner like most states did. Now were in a inflation because of all this free money. What democrats dont get is nothing is free. You cant just take take and not give. And why would support no showing voter id. Without that anyone can vote. I mean think hard thousand of undocumented people pouring in under this new administration. All thanking the current president because he said come all. And now he wants to get rid of voting id…… Piece it together man. I hate to be a trumpanzee….but everything trump said in the debate is LITERALLY happening. Re watch it

  4. American politics is a JOKE.
    A two party system which is about PARTY LOYALTY, not about what’s good for the people.

    1. @Clubber Lang Big Tech isn’t going to be stopped…as long as Big Tech fulfills their bank accounts…”Global warming” and the “Climate Crisis” will ONLY apply to us…

    2. @Clubber Lang I’m in NM…and Facebook made a HUGE “energy consuming” data facility 25 miles from Albuquerque…(Los Lunas, NM)..it’s not hard to do the math…WHO will those getting the “green energy” infrastructure?…funneled through “other agencies” of course…The Biden Adm. is refusing to release their $1.5 trillion budget…and are the democrats asking?

    3. @Aaron Dowell For the people act (H.R.1)

      Mail in ballots for all
      Lower identity requirements
      Expanding early voting
      Same-day voter registration

      Republicans are doing the correct thing by stopping this bill

    4. @Andrew Pinson Forgive me…but it doesn’t take a republican, or an independent, a Christian or an atheist, or even a rocket scientist to figure what the Biden Adm. is all about…the TRUTH is not hidden…Hating Trump or fellow republicans is exactly what they want the FOCUS on…America is being DISMANTLED…since WHEN is that a democrat policy to undo all that America stands for???

  5. Really no need to report any of this stuff. McConnel told everybody they’re gonna block everything possible.

    1. Yep and they should. Dems want ANYONE to vote. All those illegals coming in will vote democrat. If it was the other way around, dems would fight tooth and nail to keep them out of the country. Democrats are sinister

    2. @Dearly Diane For the people act (H.R.1)

      Mail in ballots for all
      Lower identity requirements
      Expanding early voting
      Same-day voter registration

      Yay or nay?

    3. @David Cisneros same a s swalwel and his chinese spy girlfriend who was hid aide. Nothing to see there right?

    4. @Pam M (Agenda 2030)…REF: Biden in zoom conference with black civil rights leaders..The Racist said the white race will be the minority by 2030, (as opposed to all other races being the majority)….”LOS LIBERALES” want to rule the U.S. like they do 3rd world countries…promise everything..and deliver NOTHING..(fast fwd on it…see how he starts talking to them in a demeaning manner)…Note: I’m of minority race and it’s quite obvious as to what’s the REAL agenda…Then there’s Agenda 2050…full blown Marxism ..You know, “sustainable environment issues”..

    5. As a former democrat…the democrats better “wake up”…because the WOKE movement is meant to dis-associate ourselves with simple personification.. and any term of endearment…like “birthing person” for “mother”…

  6. There is no fight until some select democrats remove their heads from their colons or their states make intelligent decisions in the next election involving these individuals

    1. Asking some Americans to make intelligent decisions about their representative picks is a bit too much to ask don’t you think? They haven’t so far, what makes you think they will?

    2. @Amolak Singh And Mitch McConnell suspended the filibuster a number of times when he wanted to confirm Trump’s judge’s. So what’s your point?

  7. Well the hubris of the Supreme Court is shown to be at is height, 1 act cause so much problems.

    1. @Ryan lex well I have to say, that I couldn’t consider that an American would consider fascism better than representative democracy. Your American right?

    2. @Mike Luke wow, not a surprise, the low key references to sexism and racism, btw weed is safer than oxi cotton that white pharmaceutical companies use to make money.

    3. @Mike Luke I replied to mark above it seems there’s an issue with the reply, wasn’t meant for you, apologies.

  8. They can’t win fair elections. They’re the party of “no,” nothing else, well, other than stunning stupidity, ineptness, and cruelty regarding (fill in the blank).

    1. @Ivan Johnson which mitch and his wife have no power, half of the racism around the world will cease to exist. Get rid of Nancy Pelosi and hillary Clinton and the other half will be gone too.

      Trump Administration Accomplishments (Before Covid-19 brought to us by the Deep State and Democrats)

      I am a senior citizen and struggled when Obama was President, we didn’t get any increase for 2 years on our Social Security, prescriptions were sky high, Obamacare sucked and ruined the healthcare system. Trump lowered the price of prescriptions and Medicare supplement premiums went down. Now I’m going backwards again.

      Almost 4 million jobs created. More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history. We have created more than 400,000 manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing jobs growing at the fastest rate in more than THREE DECADES. Economic growth hit 4.2 percent. New unemployment claims hit a 49-year low. Median household income has hit highest level ever recorded. African-American unemployment achieved the lowest rate ever recorded.
      Hispanic-American unemployment at the lowest rate ever recorded. Asian-American unemployment achieved the lowest rate ever recorded. Women’s unemployment reached the lowest rate in 65 years. Youth unemployment hit the lowest rate in nearly half a century. Lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma. Under his Administration, veterans’ unemployment recently reached its lowest rate in nearly 20 years. Almost 3.9 million Americans were lifted off food stamps since the election. The Pledge to America’s Workers resulted in employers committing to train more than 4 million Americans. We are committed to VOCATIONAL education. 95 percent of U.S. manufacturers are optimistic about the future—the highest ever. Retail sales surged another 6 percent over last year. Signed the biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history. After tax cuts, over $300 billion poured back in to the U.S. in the first quarter alone. As a result of his tax bill, small businesses will have the lowest top marginal tax rate. Opened ANWR and approved Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines. Record number of regulations eliminated. Enacted regulatory relief for community banks and credit unions. Obamacare individual mandate PENALTY GONE. His Administration providing more affordable healthcare options for Americans through association health plans and short-term duration plans. Last month, the FDA approved more affordable generic drugs than ever before in history. And thanks to his efforts, many drug companies are freezing or reversing planned price increases. He reformed the Medicare program to stop hospitals from overcharging low-income seniors on their drugs—saving seniors hundreds of millions of dollars this year alone. Signed Right-To-Try legislation. Secured $6 billion in NEW funding to fight the opioid epidemic. We have reduced high-dose opioid prescriptions by 16 percent during his first year in office. Signed VA Choice Act and VA Accountability Act, expanded VA telehealth services, walk-in-clinics, and same-day urgent primary and mental health care. Increased our coal exports by 60 percent; U.S. oil production recently reached all-time high. United States became a net natural gas exporter for the first time since 1957. Withdrew the United States from the job-killing Paris Climate Accord. Cancelled the illegal, anti-coal, so-called Clean Power Plan. Secured record $700 billion in military funding; $716 billion next year. NATO allies are spending $69 billion more on defense since 2016. The Space Force became the 6th branch of the Armed Forces. Confirmed more circuit court judges than any other new administration due to the 123 seats Obama left open. Withdrew from the horrible, one-sided Iran Deal. Moved U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Issued Executive Order to keep open Guantanamo Bay. Concluded a historic U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Deal to replace NAFTA. Reached a breakthrough agreement with the E.U. to increase U.S. exports. Imposed tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum to protect our national security. Imposed tariffs on China in response to China’s forced technology transfer, intellectual property theft, and their chronically abusive trade practices. Net exports are on track to increase by $59 billion this year. Improved vetting and screening for refugees, and switched focus to overseas resettlement. BEGAN BUILDING THE WALL. Republicans want STRONG BORDERS and NO CRIME. Democrats want OPEN BORDERS which equals MASSIVE CRIME.

      Biden’s Accomplishments

      HyperInflation, sometimes you must show the people. Real-world commodities in the past six months: • Oil has gone from $37.50/barrel to $63.50/barrel, a 70% move! • Lumber has gone from $500 to $1,500, a 200% move! (in six months!!) • Copper has jumped from $3.10 to $4.50, a 45% appreciation! • Coffee has soared from $100 to $143, a 43% gain! • Wheat has surged from $550 to $740, a 34% yield! Beef and Chicken has skyrocketed. There are still shortages (from Covid). Shut down the Keystone pipeline to benefit Warren Buffet. Meanwhile 40,000 skilled workers are out of a job.

      The mainstream Globalist controlled media lied and never gave you any positive facts on President Trump.

    3. @Ivan Johnson
      WAKE UP! STOP WATCHING CNN MSNBC ABC NBC CBS GLOBALIST CONTROLLED PROPAGANDA ANTI-TRUMP MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
      THE LIE…EVERYTHING THEY SAID ABOUT TRUMP HAS BEEN DEBUNKED. THEY WON’T COVER ALL THE NEGATIVE NEWS ON BIDEN AND KAMALA.

  9. Funny how much Republicans get done when in power, but Dems think they can unify somehow. The country is broken, if you don’t use power now, you will never have it again, and we will all suffer greatly

    1. Democrats don’t have any power to use. They have a 50/50 tie in the Senate, and a slim majority of just four votes in the House of Representatives. That’s not exactly grounds for a mandate to pursue a radical agenda that half the country opposes.

    2. @Jim Younger
      I don’t think half the country opposes it. Only sheep that blindly follow the Globalist controlled propaganda anti-Trump mainstream media. Go do some research. Start with Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove, Prescott Bush, Allister Crowley, One Word Order, False Flags and Epstein Island on YouTube.

    3. @jb pb I don’t think half the country even believes Joe Biden is legitimate. You don’t have to tell me about the powers of the air. I already know what we are struggling against, my friend.

    1. I think this might be a good idea. However if we do, we need to take one of the other national holidays off the books. We have to many holidays now.

    2. @Andrew Pinson people work to the damn bone weekly and you think we have TOO MANY? Alright Joker

    3. @Joshua Yancey If you are given time off for every holiday, then yes. I spent 50 plus years working mostly with no time off, because my company did not honor holidays. All you have to do is count them up. If your company only honors a few, then yes you need more. The country is turning into weeping pusses with their hands out as it is.

    1. @Pam M It’s more insulting to speak for black people instead of allowing black to speak for themselves.

    2. For that matter imagine pretending taking away drop off boxes which didn’t exist before the pandemic is somehow voter suppression… Democrats are serious liars!

  10. The rich see’s economy crisis as a garage sale, that’s why investing right now will be the best decision

    1. my cousin recommended her to me. He has been Investing with her for some months now, but he earns just 80% of whatever he Invests in a week which i think its too low, I’ve seen other traders who offer to give you 300% of whatever you invest

    2. @Newton 32 consistency is key. I’ve been investing with her for months now and I’ve made alot of profit from her. Most of those traders who offer to give you 300% of whatever you invest might scam you of your hard earned money. This ain’t that easy you know

  11. Whoever voted against this bill voted using the Constitution as their guide – the ones who voted for this bill voted with their fascist leaders evil intentions in mind!

    1. The socialists do these evil things too like the fascists. Just like other radical communists.
